UPDATE
January 5, 2012

One of my favorite spiritual stories is the one about the blind men and the elephant. There are many versions and interpretations of it, each with their own perspective, and the one that tells it with the perspective I have in mind comes from the Jain tradition:
Source: http://www.jainworld.com
Once upon a time, six blind men lived in a village. One day the villagers told them, “Hey, there is an elephant in the village today.”

They had no idea what an elephant was. They decided, “Even though we would not be able to see it, let us go and feel it anyway.” All of them went where the elephant was. Every one of them touched the elephant at the part they were closest to.

“Hey, the elephant is a pillar,” said the first man who touched his leg.

“Oh, no! it is like a rope,” said the second man, who touched the tail.

“Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree,” said the third man, who touched the trunk of the elephant.

“It is like a big hand fan” said the fourth man, who touched the ear of the elephant.

“It is like a huge wall,” said the fifth man, who touched the belly of the elephant.

“It is like a solid pipe,” said the sixth man, who touched the tusk of the elephant.

They began to argue rather heatedly about what the elephant was like and every one of them insisted that he was right, based on the evidence of the part of the elephant they had touched. A wise man was passing by and he saw this. He stopped and asked them, “What is the matter?” They said, “We cannot agree on what the elephant is like.” 

Each one of them told what he thought the elephant was like. The wise man calmly explained to them, “All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently is because each one of you touched a different part of the elephant. Actually, the elephant has all of those features that you described.”

“Oh!” everyone said. There was no more fighting. They were happy that each of them was right.
(Adapted from http://www.jainworld.com/literature/story25.htm)

The moral of the story is that there may be some truth in what someone says. Sometimes we can see that truth and sometimes not, because they may have a different perspective than ours. We just see things differently than they do.


I mention this story because of all of the things that are being said about what is going on in this world, each of which contains a part of the bigger picture (the elephant) that the speaker/writer is closest to or more familiar with, just like the blind men in the story.

For example, in an article about NASA’s position regarding doomsday expectations around the date Dec. 21, 2012, Charles Q. Choi wrote, “On Dec. 21, 2012, many doomsday believers fear the apocalypse — anything from a rogue planet smashing into us, to our world spinning end over end. However, the world should expect nothing more next year than the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, NASA says.”

I personally do not expect ANYTHING of significance to occur on ANY of the 12 timelines on the specific date of Dec. 21, 2012, but that does not mean that NOTHING of significance will happen on at least some of them during the year of 2012.

The article dismisses a possible Pole Shift in 2012: “There is some alarm that 2012 could see the flipping of Earth’s poles — either the planet’s geographical poles, which mark the Earth’s axis of rotation, or its magnetic poles, which our compasses point toward. … The planet’s magnetic poles do flip, but over periods of about 500,000 years, and not suddenly, “but over thousands of years,” with no evidence of a flip on Dec. 21, 2012.”

One of the things I am continually frustrated by is the ongoing confusion between a MAGNETIC pole shift and a GEOGRAPHICAL shift in the axis of rotation. I agree with the statement that a magnetic pole shift is not something to worry about, although it could cause some problems for migratory patterns over time, as well as for navigation systems being used in our technology in several fields. Maps and atlases would also have to be redone, using new conventions to identify the directions of north, south, east and west.

Our maps use an arbitrary but long-standing convention in terms of what we call “north” and “south.” The geographic “north pole” is not the same thing as the “north magnetic pole,” although at the present time, they are in the same hemisphere — the northern hemisphere, to be exact. It is because of naming conventions from our present historical era that we use the name “north pole,” for the particular end of the axis of rotation that is located in what we presently call “the northern hemisphere.” (We could just as well have agreed to call it the “red pole” and its opposite the “blue pole,” or any other pair of words that we agreed to use.)

In most people’s minds, the geographic “north pole” and the magnetic north pole are pretty much the same thing, but in theories about a reversal of the planet’s magnetic field, they are most definitely NOT the same thing, unless we re-name each hemisphere in relation to a changed magnetic field and then re-name the corresponding geographic pole with the same name given to the re-named hemisphere it resides in. The geography would remain exactly the same. Only the names given to the directions would change, and that only by agreement on a global scale.

More importantly, even in the event of a reversal of the magnetic field of the planet, the ACTUAL MOTION of the planet — the direction, momentum and speed of rotation — would remain the same, even if we would then refer to the sun as “rising” in the “West” and “setting” in the “East.” Only the names of the directions would have changed. The planet’s actual motion would remain the same and the ANGLE of the axis would remain the same in relation to our sun – tipped 23.5 degrees toward the sun at the upper pole, regardless of whether it was called “north” or “south.”

As the article states, reversal of the magnetic field occurs somewhat regularly, in cycles of approximately 500,000 years, and happens very gradually. This phenomenon is demonstrated by dating various geologic layers of rock that contain crystals of minerals which aligned with the Earth's magnetic field and solidified in relation to that magnetic field as it existed when that rock layer was formed. 

However, there is no evidence in those same layers of rock of a shift in the axis of rotation, which describes how our planet rotates on its axis and in relation to our sun and the rest of the planets in our solar system. The evidence for a sudden shift in the axis of rotation is more along the lines of the discovery of mammoths in the polar ice who had been frozen so quickly that the grass they were eating was still intact in their stomachs.

I DO believe that a GEOGRAPHIC (not magnetic) shift in the axis of rotation is going to occur on the timeline leading to Terra because I have SEEN it happen in the vision I was given in 1982, and I have no reason to doubt that it will indeed occur at some point in time. I do not expect it to happen on Dec. 21, 2012, though, and on that point I do agree with the article.

My personal feeling is that there are several factors whose combined effects will cause this shift in the axis of rotation when it's time for that to happen, although I do not have a precise date for it at this time. 

One of these factors is the current heating up of the mantle of the planet, which has been scientifically documented and which accounts for the slippage of the planet's crust over its core as it is portrayed in the movie, 2012. Another is the redistribution of very large amounts of crustal mass from their original locations, due to the complex interactions of man and the environment (e.g. the melting of the huge amounts of water trapped in polar ice and glaciers plus the ongoing mining and redistribution of very large subsurface deposits of water and oil).

I expect these factors — a sufficiently imbalanced land mass and a more liquid mantle — to collectively trigger the slippage of the crust over the mantle until the land mass balance is restored. There may also be other factors involved, such as increased solar activity, withdrawal of the “tractor beams” from the ships, etc. but none of these factors would be enough on their own. It’s their combined effects that eventually cause the shift, not any one thing, as so many of the other theories are based upon.

This is not as far-fetched as it may seem. The axis of rotation is the result of a combination of forces acting on the MASS of the planet and how that mass is distributed. In his foreword to one of Charles Hapgood's books about Hapgood's theory of crustal displacement, Albert Einstein wrote:

In a polar region there is continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth's rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses, and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth's crust over the rest of the earth's body...
(Hapgood, 1958, p. 1, emphasis added)

Just this past week, geologists working for the state of Ohio stopped the dumping of toxic wastes into wells 9,000 feet below the surface, which appears to be destabilizing a geologic region that had no prior history of history of earthquakes.

Other articles I have seen have reported increases in earthquake activity in geographic areas where large amounts of oil have been pumped out of the ground. Putting fluids in or taking them out in sufficient volumes can affect local stability in the planet's crust. Glacial and polar ice melt results in the redistribution of very large amounts of water into the ocean. Pumping irrigation water out of the huge (173,000 sq. miles) Ogallala aquifer (in the US central plains region) over the past 100+ years has evaporated enormous amounts of water into the atmosphere. It is not being replaced in the aquifer, which is expected to go dry within as little as 25 years.

Water has considerable mass. The amount of mass involved in the massive redistribution of water discussed above, when combined with the removal of other fluids (such as oil), is large enough to significantly change the distribution of crustal mass for the entire planet until a tipping point has been reached that overcomes the natural “drag” between the crust and the mantle — one of the forces that keeps the crust in its present position. The present heating of the mantle reduces its viscosity (makes it more fluid) and that also contributes to this effect and makes it more likely that a sudden displacement of the crust could indeed occur.

In my 1982 vision, when I saw the Pole Shift occur, I was seeing it from the perspective of being on board one of the space ships following the evacuation. I saw the Earth hanging in space, turning normally. Then the rotation slowed and came to a complete stop, with the oceans being flung off into space in great clouds of water, along with everything else that was not bedrock. The (now barren) planet hung motionless for a moment, then slowly rolled over on its side, like a top that falls over from having lost momentum. It then began rotating again, with the upper pole of the axis of rotation tipped approximately 24 degrees downward to the right (toward our present equator) from its present position (as seen from the side).

(In the above drawing, the black line represents our present equator. The red line represents the equator as it would appear after the Pole Shift. This is exactly how I saw it, except that there was no water left on the surface. This drawing is actually what was seen and drawn by Dee Finney in her own experiences.)

I am not the only one to have “seen” this Pole Shift occur. In the Bible, there are at least two prophetic accounts of this event: Isaiah 24:3, 13, 19, 20, and 23 specifically describe such an event, and in Rev. 21:1, the writer “saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more” – precisely the result I had been shown in my 1982 vision. The “new earth” is the planet we refer to as Terra. The “first earth” is the one we currently occupy.

Other people have reported being shown the same thing in their own visions and dreams. At least one of them attributes the Pole Shift to the passage of Nibiru/Planet X (which may be true on another timeline approximately 1300 to 1600 years from now, according to Zechariah Sitchin's calculations for its passage through our solar system again). Others make their predictions based on other theories and research into historical and geologic records, but my expectations are different, both as to cause of the shift and the way the planet looks after the shift. In other versions of this predicted occurrence, the water remains on the planet, but not in the version I was shown. Different perspectives, different perceptions — the elephant story all over again — and it is my belief that at least some of these other predictions may turn out to be accurate on the other timelines, but not on ours.

Even if they did know a Pole Shift was about to happen, there would probably be no warning given to us by our scientists or our governments (as has been portrayed in a number of “disaster” movies, including 2012), but for those of us who are watched over and guided by our “upstairs teams,” we will be kept informed and have other ways of knowing what is going on and what we have to do. Cultivating our inner listening is very important for all of us, even if some of us get our information in different ways than others do.

The Hosts have repeatedly advised all of us to get our “news” from within, and more recently counseled me personally to observe my own process in order to see the signs of “what time it is.” Putting my own experiences together with the accounts given by others in our online forums, I currently feel that 2012 is going to see the resolution of the 3D portion of Operation Terra, which will culminate in the actual evacuation, just before a relatively sudden shift in the planet’s axis of rotation leaves the present 3D planet barren and devoid of both life and water for a very long time.

Timing is the most difficult thing for me to estimate because all of these things originate from outside of linear time. However, while I could be wrong about the timing, this is my current feeling and it seems to be supported by some of the experiences I have been having recently: Around 2 weeks ago, I received a communication from that aspect of myself (4D Adonna) that resides in/is focused within 4D, showing me what the rest of MY process will look like as I move into fully merging with her in that location. She showed me that I would first anchor my consciousness into where she presently expresses and that, after that occurred, my awareness would slowly be pulled up into her location so that I would find myself identifying with being her instead of being my present 3D identity.

She further showed me that this process would include a stripping away of everything that was still left as residue from all of my 3D lives that couldn’t go with me into that location and frequency band. (It looked like a cob of corn whose kernels were being stripped off in a steady motion, leaving only the cob or “core” to “go up” to where she is.) There was clearly a process involved that would proceed steadily in small steps and culminate in attaining that final state in yet another small step.

On December 30, 2011, I felt myself anchor into that place. I feel that I go there every night while I’m asleep, but this was something that felt more like a “docking” of some kind – an arrival at a key point in the overall process.
On the morning of January 1, 2012, I woke up feeling like I had little tractor treads on my feet and had begun chugging along steadily without any force opposing the movement. The feeling was one of moving slowly and steadily forward instead of the kind of “waiting for something to happen” that I had experienced for so long in the past. The fact that this feeling was present when I awoke on the first morning of 2012 felt significant to me and seemed to be a sign of what this year would be about. 2011 was gone and now I had crossed some kind of line into what lay ahead in 2012. Dates are thoughtforms that have reality, too.

That night, my husband and I both noticed that we were much more sensitive to energies of all kinds and some of our old stuff came bubbling up to the surface, which was not at all comfortable for either of us. During the night, I woke up with the distinct feeling that I was being wrung out like a handkerchief wet with my own tears, and I had a realization that the stripping away of everything that was left had begun, just as she had shown me it would. This feeling eventually passed and I fell back asleep without further incident.

In addition to the discomfort of the stripping away, I am also experiencing interludes of true happiness – something I have not experienced in many, many years. While 2012 may turn out to be a difficult year for many on the planet, I am very optimistic that it will be OUR year – the one that sees the fulfillment of our dream of participating in the creation of the pathway to Terra for all of the generations to follow, throughout the galaxy.

In the Messages, the Hosts have indicated that as the world comes apart all around us, we will be experiencing a rising quality of life for ourselves. This is not necessarily material in nature. Although material comfort is important, too, the real ingredient in happiness is how we FEEL inside and this is the first time in all of these years of clearings that I often feel content and happy inside for substantial periods of time instead of a fleeting moment or two.

As I have often said, time will tell the truth of all things. However, I feel I am seeing and feeling enough at this time to be confident that — on the timeline that leads to Terra — we will finally see the culmination of everything we have been waiting and working toward, and I have reason to think that it will take place and complete sometime in 2012, although I do not at all resonate with the date of December 21, 2012 as being the date on which it will happen.

I also see a lot of evidence that a great sorting out is taking place across the other timelines, so while this may be true for the timeline that leads to Terra, it may also NOT be true for the other timelines whose exit points differ from ours. Some of this evidence comes in the form of what other people express about the part of the larger picture (the elephant) that is closest to them and within their scope of awareness. 

I am focused on what I was shown and what I am experiencing, so my perspective is different than theirs. We are all “right” with regard to our perspective, but none of us has the entire “big picture,” nor should we. The Creator gets to be surprised through our being surprised, and that’s just the way it is.

As more information becomes available, I will share what I can share publicly. Some of it will remain private or be limited to my posts on the forums, but I feel I can say with confidence that, no matter what form things may take, everyone will get to where they are destined to go, according to the script or plan for their life that was formulated by the Oversoul that creates each life. As my husband recently posted in the OT Online Forums, it was all written in a single moment of creation billions of years ago, but due to the nature of linear time, we get to experience it gradually, across that entire span of years.
There is really only NOW, so put on your NOW watch, stay over your feet, and see where those tractor treads carry you! 2012 is looking very good to me.
Love to all,
Sara/Adonna
