Chaos and Transition: Patterns for a Stronger Species"Many psychics and teachers claim that the planet may also be having a kundalini awakening. Our species may be in the throes of a transformation so profound that our present consciousness cannot fathom it.”- Bonnie Greenwell
Chaos and Transition: Patterns for a Stronger Species
"Before I began to do research as a doctoral student and then specialize in working with people who had experienced kundalini awakenings, I never imagined the extraordinary range of multidimensional experiences I would encounter, or that this work, which I thought was very individual and personal, would lead me into reframing the nature of world events.
I now do therapy and consult with people who have had powerful light and visionary experiences, who remember past lives as clearly as most of us remember breakfast, who channel light beings who are trying to raise the consciousness on the planet, who have traversed other-dimensional worlds, who have encounters with extraterrestrials or other-dimensional teachers, who demonstrate uncanny psychic awareness, and who are undergoing major energetic and emotional transformations accompanied by expanded consciousness. These life-changing phenomena are occurring across all cultures and ideologies, judging from letters I receive from all over the world. The people having these experiences are often successful, healthy, and highly educated people thrown into a paradigm beyond their belief system, who find themselves struggling with the twofold task of functioning in society and honoring an expanded awareness of intuitive consciousness.
Today I believe that like a dry creek bed filling slowly with melted mountain snow, the battered human spirit is receiving a regenerative flow of spiritual consciousness to help us set a new directive for our collective work as a species. This is happening across the planet, as thousands of individuals are drawn to look inward for deeper experiences, and then find themselves faced with the need to integrate transformative changes and radical new paradigms regarding the nature of human consciousness and existence. Many of us witnessed similar shifts as a result of drug experimentation in the sixties....
Kundalini is the creative energy and consciousness said by the ancient Indians to be coiled at the base of the spine. It is the residual of the energy/consciousness blueprint that distributes prana through the body and causes life to animate the fetus, When it is awakened there is a definite physical sensation that may be experienced in three intensities — with the slow spiral movement of a snake winding upward through the body, as a steady stream of energy, or with a sudden explosive power like a geyser erupting. This energy may trigger energy, heat, pain, emotional changes, physical problems, visionary experiences, psychic openings, expanded creativity, and many other events. In a full awakening it is the beginning of a lifetime of change in the physical, emotional, and spiritual condition that has the potential to lead to liberation. Some yogic masters state that kundalini awakening changes the cellular structure and the brain. Sri Aurobindo and Pandit Gopi Krishna felt its awakening could lead to a greater evolution of the human species.
Many psychics and teachers claim that the planet may also be having a kundalini awakening. Our species may be in the throes of a transformation so profound that our present consciousness cannot fathom it.”

The fulfillment of eschatological instruction promised by Jesus
An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
“An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: apokalypsis ... literally meaning "an uncovering") is a disclosure or revelation of great knowledge. In religious and occult concepts, an apocalypse usually discloses something very important that was hidden or provides what Bart Ehrman has termed, "A vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities". Historically, the term has a heavy religious connotation as commonly seen in the prophetic revelations of eschatology obtained through dreams or spiritual visions.” Wikipedia 2021-01-09

“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)
