@jeanne-mayell, I wanted to respond to your words related to this Kali Yuga period and the collective whirling-down-the-drain mass energy/time/space experience. This may not be the best place for it, so I hope you'll move it wherever it should go.
When I look/sense/feel into the collective field, I see two things happening. All the way across the "horizontal" band, there's an intense impulse or surge toward mass regression, reversal, or collapse. Horizontal refers to all our interpenetrating group identities—our communities, regions, nations, societies, cultures, etc.. And the regressive urge is highly factional, sectarian, fascistic, nationalistic, authoritarian.
Because there's so much soul fragmentation in the field (a product of repeated individual, collective, and historical traumas), it's much more difficult to develop and evolve in the natural progression. There's a lot of "gravity" mounting to inhibit it, and there are forces that appear to take advantage of this.
But that's not the only thing that's happening.
In many ways, this horizontal reversal is part of a cycle (Kali Yuga) that's been going on for ages. What's different now is how much mass, and therefore momentum, it's acquired due to overwhelming population growth and accumulating human traumas.
There's also a very new field force, which I don't believe we've ever seen before. It's felt as a potent forward motion or upward arc in the vertical forces in the collective matrix. Vertical refers to our familial, ancestral, and therefore genetic lineages. So, despite accumulating and multigenerational traumas, there appears to have been sufficient personal and group healing occurring (we've all been in therapy since at least the 60's right?), so that a kind of mass assemblage is happening. It feels like Tetris looks to me. I see what had been fractured holograms suddenly "fitting" themselves together, and can feel ancestors aligning and awakening together in great "lines." Not sure how else to describe that.
Now, what's happening in the horizontal field is spread out, disorganized, and chaotic. The majority of it is in total shadow, but what I can "see" appears like great wafting clouds of smoky amber/brown light. There's a lot of dissonance, dissociation, and fragmentation in it, like a hologram that's glitching all over the place. By contrast, the vertical "upward" energy is beaming right up through the center of this. It makes up comparatively far less volume, but clearly holds trillions++ times more potential energy. It's almost too bright to look at and seems to be gaining momentum. This upward/forward vertical energy is actually bringing/opening up more space, more clarity, more LIGHT in the horizontal field around it. And that's because this vertical light is the part of the collective that's awake.
I believe that this vertical light is the evolutionary impulse of human consciousness, and that it's reaching for the very edge-space or outer limit of what's known. When it touches that, it opens a window into radical emergence, which is the co-creative dance we do with the Divine. That's where new inspiration, new innovation, new genius, new light comes in. That light could be called "Future," and it has the quantum capacity to change the past.
But we're powerfully co-creative whether we're awake or not. So, the way I'm seeing the energy, there is a backward, regressed, lower order timeline currently being manifested by a vast number of human and other souls. It's coming into being through the lower tiers of the astral, or lower 4th dimension. But simultaneously, a very different reality is emerging at this juncture, as if a pulsar ray is shooting back out the center of that bottleneck, defying the whirling gravitational drain of timeline collapse. And I don't think anyone can know what it will bring with it entirely, except that the dilemma of separation (an illusion in consciousness) seems to somehow be overcome there. Many of us see possibilities for radical transformation and healthier ways of living together and with the Earth. I believe that world is being born in our time through that ray. It already exists, but vertical alignment will clear the veils so that we can see it, and therefore make it real, here.
So, at the end of the day, I have nothing but faith. And a hell of a lot of awe.
At the same time, I don't wish to promote the idea of a schism in worlds or a splitting of universes where all the "bad," regressive, reactionary people go backwards, and all the "good" ones ascend. That only promotes more separation, and therefore more suffering, in my view—and is ultimately inconsistent with the fact that 'I and my father/sister/enemy/Shadow are one.' Practically speaking, it does nothing to advance the unity consciousness states we'll need in order to solve climate change or any other wicked problem, or to become a more awakened, actualized race of beings.
I believe a healing future will honor all axes on the grand continuum of essences, including both the holy feminine and the holy masculine. Since I've already stuck my foot out on the far limb of the woo tree, I'll say that I personally remember matriarchal timelines/lifetimes on Earth, but plenty of notable anthropologists, sociologists, and cultural historians (Riane Eisler is a fave) contend that these histories are scientifically indisputable, and actually took up the larger portion of our evolutionary lifespan thus far. It's just that, in relatively recent history, any awareness of our matriarchal past has been overwhelmingly erased. To the victors go the libraries.
Looking ahead, we need to heal the betrayed feminine within all of us, certainly. I believe we can begin that by honoring and integrating "the other." We can also begin that by reconciling the divide between science and spirituality—and every other version of the self/nature split. Cartesian dualism is overdue for an upgrade.
