What the Heck is 11:11:11?

"When the Moon is in the 7th House - and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then Peace will guide the planets, and LOVE will steer the stars"  - the Fifth Dimension

We are at the precipice of some very interesting times. Much has been written and pondered about the upcoming end of the Mayan calendar on 12-21-12. Some doomsdayers would like you to believe that the end of the world is coming. We New Age hippies and healers want you to believe that a period of higher consciousness, raised vibrations, increased awareness and spiritual enlightenment is upon us. A recent cartoon I saw depicted a Mayan creating the calender and admitting to another that he'd simply "run out of room." The response of the second Mayan? "That'll really freak someone out one day."

I certainly do not claim to have all of the answers. But I do understand energy and I believe that a great shift is not only coming but, in fact, has already begun. Most of us in the yoga community already feel it, we are just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. This month we have a great opportunity to work together to build upon this new rising consciousness as 11:11:11 is right around the corner.

Wait, what the heck is 11:11:11?

Well, simply enough, it is November 11th of this year. A closer look reveals a link in numerology to the number eleven, considered a master number and pertaining to heightened awareness, divine revelation and living in your light. To many, 11:11 is an auspicious number. Kundalini yoga teacher, Yogi Bhajan, stated, "We are entering the age of Aquarius on 11/11/2011. It will be a new time. The entire psyche is changing. You must purify the mind, body & soul to be real, innocent and sattvic (pure). Elevate yourself to be angelic. This age which you will serve is an age of awareness and experience."

With such an auspicious time available to us, I decided to have a gathering of yogis, healers, students, teachers, and generally, anyone interested in getting together on this date to sit in unity and share your light for the purposes of healing and awakening. What will we do? Meditation, healing, sharing and more. Please arrive by no later than 11 am, as chanting will promptly begin and be happening at the time of 11:11 am and you won't want to miss the energy we will create together.

What else will happen is anyone's guess.
