The Three Phases of the Great Paradigm Shift 09.30.11  

Transition, Transformation, and Transmutation and 2012


Three phases exist in the great paradigm shift from the 4th to the 5th World. We are emerging from the transitional phase, and we are beginning to enter the transformation phase, where real steps are made in the physical world to make the new world manifest.

We all know that things are changing. In the terms used by the ancient Hopi Indians, the 4th World is now ending and the 5th World is now beginning. The Hopi prophecies are well known, and this site is a good summary of it, if you are not fully familiar with it. One Hopi elder put it this way:

"The people will corrupt the good ways of life, bringing about the same life as that from which we fled in the underworld. The sacred body of the female will no longer be hidden, for the shield of protection will be lifted up, an act of temptation toward sexual license will also be enjoyed. Most of us will be lost in the confusion. An awareness that something extraordinary is happening will develop in most of the people, for even their leaders will be confused into polluting themselves. It will be difficult to decide whom to follow… Those gifted with the knowledge of the sacred instructions will then live very cautiously, for they will remember and have faith in these instructions, and it will be on their shoulders that the fate of the world shall rest."
       -Mr. Katchongva; Hopi Elder (1865-1972)

Frank Waters, in The Book of the Hopi, writes:

"The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. 'You can read this in the earth itself. Plant forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds. This could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them. That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.'"

Elia Wise, a Universal Soul in human form, writes in her seminal volume, Letter to Earth:

"You need working transformative models. Get practical. Provide enlightened options for satisfying primary needs. Transcending your current economic model, establish systems for providing yourselves with bio-dynamic or organically produced food; simplified esthetic and environmentally compatible individual and collective housing; all-inclusive, integral healthcare; and live forums for the transformative dialog. This will create positive public awareness and a popular desire to change the existing system, bit by bit. Divert the potential for social chaos by enlisting conscious public commitment to a cycle of social transformation. People will rise to transformational action once effective noncompetitive models for the maintenance of survival are available."

This good advice is about how to make real steps towards the implementation of the 5th World we all seek. These are the beginning steps we need to take as we begin to emerge from the transitional phase and enter into the transformational phase.

There are three phases of the paradigm shift, and they generally center around the December 21, 2012, point, which is not a lights-out end-of-time point, but rather a time of most rapid change, as the 4th World loses its grip, all that is unsustainable falls away chunk by greater chunk, and all those who are unprepared or unwilling to live in a more loving, gentler world get hysterical and take drastic actions to forestall the inevitable. The following diagram may be helpful in identifying these phases and their relationships to one another:

Horizontal scale: time, centered around December 21, 2012.

These phases can be defined as follows:

Transitional phase:

is a period of subtle conceptual and energetic change, during which awareness expands, values reorganize, and consciousness elevates.
This phase leaves the 4th World and gives birth to the transformational phase into which we are now moving.

Transformational phase:

is a period in which the the subtle transitional changes become manifest.
Purposeful action is taken to form and apply alliances and models that demonstrate elevated consciousness and a new organization of values.
The midpoint of this phase is 12/21/2012, when change is most rapid and the paradigm shift is in full swing.
This phase gives birth to the transformational phase.

Transmutational phase:

is the capacity of an integral system to change structure and behavior so fundamentally that it reveals different aspects of nature.
Transmutation is the fundamental reorganization of values that redirects the energy of an entire reality system.
This is the phase that gives birth to the 5th World, a new world based on love, balance, and spiritual strength.
It is a world of harmony, gracefulness, beauty, simplicity, and a new rhythm of being.

Let us begin the transformation phase now, and begin to live intentionally in this new world of love, balance, and spiritual strength.
