Last night I had ANOTHER apocalyptic dream. I’ve had several (many). In every dream there is a similar theme – the world around me is collapsing and myself and either a group of friends or my children are trying to save the world. These dreams always end the same – me waking up completely exhausted and hungover from the frustration over not being able to complete the dream. I am never able to do what I had set out to do – save the world.
Today it hit me!
The world in which we have been living – the one based in fear, power and control is in the midst of its own demise (cue Oingo Boingo!). It is imploding upon itself and everyday new revelations come forth demonstrating this reality. This is the world that has only served the very few and which has been built on the backs of those who have become their indentured servants. As the very few have grown in power, and their servants have become disempowered, the corruption, lies and betrayals upon which the dying world has been built are coming forth – actually, flooding forth.
Here’s an example of one that I am certain served as the inspiration of my latest dream:
A person shared on FB about the recent changes in the health insurance plan. Their deductible has increased exponentially. Mind you, this person works for one of the riches corporations in the world. I did a little research and discovered their top execs make upwards of $10Mil a year and have full benefits at no cost to themselves. It is only “the worker bees” who have to pay for their health insurance. HMMMMMMM……something is rotten in Denmark. I made this point on FB and you should have seen the people running to the defense of their employer! Ok…whatever. I got my own undies in a twist over this and henceforth came the dream.
But….here is the thing. THAT world is dying. People are waking up. They are asking questions. They are seeing the truth. And if the “worker bees” aren’t asking the questions, the very few keep putting their foot in their own mouths, revealing exactly HOW they have become so privileged. “The worker bees” will only put up with this for so long. In a hive, when the queen stops taking care of her workers, the workers hastily find themselves a new queen.
It is long past time for a new queen! And the queen is rising. In a hive, the “seed queens” are already there. The nurse bees simply locate the most viable larvae and start feeding them royal jelly. Henceforth the new queen is born. The same thing is happening in our own world. The queens are being made ready to take their place as leaders of the new world. These are the women and men who carry a vision of love instead of a vision of fear. These are the people who desire a world where the needs of the many are favored over the needs of the few and who understand that if we don’t start taking care of this planet we live on, it will destroy us so as to save itself.
These new queens are not only grown-ups. They are the children who came here expecting a world that is one, only to discover a world that is divided. They know they cannot “fix” the broken world. Instead, they long for its demise so they can build the new world that already resides within their heart. These are the Gen Y and Gen Z kids that the dying world fears – calling them lazy, irresponsible and screen addicts instead of honoring them for the amazing gifts they are bringing to our world. I for one LOVE these kids (Cue The B52’s)!
It is for the sake of these new queens and the new world we are called to bring forth that I am here. I am not hear to fix, save or heal the dying world (let it die!). I am here to birth something new and I AM NOT ALONE!
