The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black.

Source - Gaia Portal

Heralds of amplifications present.

Storm fields relinquish, as dregs are removed.

Waters of emerging Higher Energies wash the planet, and hu-being consciousness.

Nothingness appreciates.

And now the analysis:

I do not have an insider or direct source for the meanings below. This is my interpretation of the update, based on extrapolation and contextual usage of the terms. The meanings provided are not the only ones that can be gleaned; in my view, all meanings have value, especially when shared and discussed openly. Please comment below if interested, I'd love to hear other's thoughts on this material.

Interpretations: "Heralds of amplifications present." - The term herald refers to an official messenger of news; a sign or indication that something is about to happen. In this case, the things being heralded are amplifications. An amplification is the application of energy into a dynamic system of motion that exaggerates or polarizes pre-existing dynamics. For example, if the volume on a speaker is too low, increasing the volume amplifies the signal making it louder. Another example would be pushing a child on a swing. The child swings at a certain intensity (height) and frequency. When one pushes against the child in rhythm with the motion of the swing, inertia is added and the height increases. All things in the universe are vibrational, having motion, intensity, frequency, cycle and polarity, all of which express the unique attributes of the object in question. The concept of amplification makes the latent properties of an object more intense, usually making them more noticeable, which is at the heart of this passage. I think this statement is suggesting that those things which are becoming more intense are being noticed or presented to observers, providing the prerequisite data for growth.

For example, a herald of the season of Spring is equal durations of night and day. A herald of addiction is the lack of self-control. A herald of soul growth is the development of wisdom. Each herald acts as an indicator for some phase of progress and unfoldment. And since the universe is ultimately interconnected in all ways, there are always heralds of change and progress constantly pouring out. 

The implied suggestion in this statement is that an observer has to actually pay attention in order to receive the message being heralded. Obviously, if one is not present in the moment, they may miss a sign when it presents itself. What pulls us out of the present is often trauma or unrest, a storm of unreconciled or processed ideas that can be experienced as mind chatter. Therefore, clearing one's mind and developing holistic thinking is a way of enhancing direct perception of reality itself, allowing the individual to cognize in the present, instead of rationalizing in the past. But due to abstract systems of thought, most of humanity is incapable of immediate cognition. However, some people are able to observe and understand what is being seen all within the present moment. I suspect the more self-mastery one gains in life the more powerfully these skills will be developed.

"Storm fields relinquish, as dregs are removed." - The term dregs refers to the remnants of liquid left at the bottom of a container, often used to describe the most worthless part of a thing. For example, the dregs of pot of a coffee are often the most bitter and less desirable. The phrase storm fields relinquish implies that what was once very turbulent and disquiet has now been quelled. Furthermore, the term relinquish implies an act of will, a submission, suggesting that the storms being felt here are related to the internal angst within one's mind. As we discussed above, unreconciled experiences produce storms of thought, as the mind seeks to organize everything into a holistic reflection of reality. But our choices to reject the truth cause imbalances within this process (dregs), which are then amplified so that we can take notice of them, re-evaluating our choice. For example, if we have a bad childhood memory involving our parents fighting, and this was associated to the color of the walls in your house, such as the color orange, then simply the sight of orange could cause emotional distress. The color orange, in this case, acts as a catalyst or trigger for remembrance, and once in the conscious mind, the memory can be re-examined and any choice related to it can be changed. If we once judged this as a bad thing, we can now develop gratitude for the experience, reprogramming our association in the process. 

As a matter of fact, I think the mind is preconditioned to focus on "negativity." For example, when we stub our toe, the feeling of pain eclipses all other sensations. We could have been enjoying a beautiful piece of music, and the act of stubbing our toe will almost completely draw our attention to the pain. In this sense, a dreg would be our choice to reject part of the truth in the experience we had, which causes a distortion in the fabric of understanding in our minds. Again the mind is seeking to create a holistic understanding, but when it finds inconsistencies, it tries to focus our attention on them so they can be reconciled. Given this dynamic, and the first statement in this update, this passage seems to be suggesting that heralds of amplification are being noticed and the dregs of incomplete experience are being removed. In the process, the storms of emotion and thought are being quieted as we relinquish ourselves to the whole truth. 

As a side note: one of the most limiting things we can do is reject a part of our experience. This has become a standard practice on Earth, causing great storms in the process. But we do this subtly, often without even noticing that we've turned away from the truth in our lives. For example, smell can be a very intense experience, and as children, we are indoctrinated to think that some smells are ok to hate. Within this philosophy, we develop a list of smells we deem undesirable, which produces intense feelings of disgust when we encounter them in life. But is this really the only possible way to reconcile our experience? What if we choose to accept the fullness of the smell, but simply choose not to expose ourselves to it. For example, I personally do not enjoy the smell of burning food, but I've developed the ability to accept it fully, so that I no longer feel physically disgusted when smelling it. Using this as an example, simply accepting the fullness of experience greatly enhances our ability to remain claim and balanced in life. So that we are empowered by heralds instead of feeling like victims of them.

"Waters of emerging Higher Energies wash the planet, and hu-being consciousness." - The term hu-being, as defined contextually by Gaia Portal, refers to those embodiments of consciousness who are more selfish than selfless, more service to self than service to others, follow the path of falseness, and as such, create chaos instead of harmony a majority of the time. The term water here implies an elemental description, much like what is articulated in astrological schools of thought. Water signs tend to be deep intuitive individuals with seemingly mystical abilities for divining information. Water symbolically tends to wash things away and reveal what may have been hidden. Here the term water is used in association with emerging Higher Energetics, which are most likely the same amplified heralds mentioned in the first statement. Higher Energetics could refer to any number of things, either physical or metaphysical, but in either case, it is a highly coherent and organized expression. For example, if one compresses water using sound waves, light can be generated, called sonoluminescence. In the mental planes, highly energetic states of mind are associated with heightened perception and cognition, which empower us to more accurately comprehend or cognize the truth in experience. Given all this, I think the statement is suggesting that those beings who experience the most turbulence, due to their choice to follow the path of falseness (hu-beings), are having their inconsistencies (dregs) washed to the surface of perception. And as a result, they are able to see the error of their ways and make a new choice.

"Nothingness appreciates." - This statement seem rather confusing, but I think there is a perspective that makes it powerfully revealing. Consider that the void or nothingness is a lack of polarization or vibration. Things in creation or the illusion of existence vibrate, giving them form. The creator is not only all things in creation but the infinite potential of creation, all things and infinitely more. Therefore, to know nothing, as Socrates said, is to know the creator, it is to have God consciousness. Within this method of thought, nothingness represents the void or the creator. In which case the statement would read: The Creator appreciates. What is being appreciated? Most likely the relinquishing of the hu-beings as they remove the dregs from their minds. When a child of creation turns their eye to the truth and the source, all of heaven rejoices. 

PS - In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn't sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know, that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.

Note about meanings: The meanings offered are my attempt to objectify the Gaia Portal updates, to give them a scientifically supported basis in reality. However, the subjective process of reading the update personally is incredibly valuable, and meanings generated in each respect are not mutually exclusive (in conflict with each other). I suggest reading the update, like a tool for divination as if it was written specifically for you; similar to a psychic reading. Your meanings may not match what I share, but that does not mean one is more 'correct' than another. All meanings have value, depending on the context which is applied to them, all perspectives have a place within the whole of what IS, and therefore, can be part of an exploration of one's self. Our perspective is intimately connected to all others.
