Storms of compliance erupt, then fade.

Collective fears are viewed, then released.

Emanations of Inner Greatness of Spirit come to the fore.

Posthumous ramblings comply.

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: "Storms of compliance erupt, then fade." - The term compliance refers to the act of conforming or adhering to a command. A subordinate who performs an action in accordance with a command given is said to have complied. A storm of compliance would be many individuals agreeing to perform some kind of action. The statement makes no mention of what is being complied with, whether it is beneficial or deleterious, but given the latter portion of the statement referring to fading, it could indicate that individuals were following these orders and then, via a process of inner discernment, decided not to. In this case, the order or command is most likely from a human source or close to it, as in a government or institution. An individual's ability to make a judgment call about a command is what differentiates a slave from a freeman. Soldiers follow orders without question, even if they are immoral and destructive, but a warrior evaluates a command and chooses to comply only if it harmonizes with their ideal. A spiritual warrior is one who is subordinate to the universal spirit or the creator. A spiritual warrior evaluates a command against the spiritual laws of the universe (Natural Law), listening to their inner voice of spirit to determine if it is valid and just. And when a spiritual warrior discovers that an order is not moral, they choose not to comply. Quite possibly this statement is referring to this process of inner evaluation because often times following immoral orders leads one to conclude that they would not do so again in the future. For example, some soldiers who experienced combat during the War on Terror have seen the truth behind their actions and now choose not to fight in these wars. I have a personal friend who shared this experience with me, as verification.

If we consider that the statement is referring to the learning process itself, then those who chose to follow orders blindly, whether in the military or average citizens, learned the truth and are reticent to follow them again. Considering that paying taxes funds the War on Terror and the resulting horrors it pushes onto humanity, choosing not to comply with an order from the government to pay taxes would be a moral act. And there are countless obligations, orders, commands, edicts, pronouncements, decrees and forms of social pressure in our world today. The average person is constantly being told what to do, but rarely do individuals question these orders. 

From this perspective, the statement is suggesting that humanity is finally beginning to question these orders and choose not to comply with them. This is the fulcrum of the control system. If humanity simply stopped following their orders from the cabal, the system of control would collapse instantly. This is not an exaggeration, it is a literal truth. The whole system is founded on people blindly following orders, which makes them literal pawns for the Cabal. In this sense, humanity is not enslaved by the elite, they are enslaved by their fellow brothers and sisters who allowed themselves to be deceived or bought into the program of enslavement. Hence, developing morality and the capacity to be a spiritual warrior is the solution to all of humanity's problems. 

And as a final note about this statement, it could also be referring to spiritual orders or commands. For example, the creator has issued a command to his creatures in creation—for all intents and purposes. This order is to gain mastery, to become sovereign, to use the powers we've been given wisely and for the benefit of all. We know this is the case because the whole of reality is bound by rules which reveal to us that the universe is designed to foster and support sovereignty. Complying with this command means walking the path of truth, always following and acting in the truth, wherever it leads us. Given this interpretation, the statement could be referring to the rhythmic process of growth and development which all beings in creation seem to experience. When we make contact with the truth, we absorb it and contemplate it, which produces new ways of being. Usually, when we learn something new that we find valuable, we want to change ourselves and our behavior to reflect this. It is at this stage, we would be complying with the truth. But when we act on this new way of being, we are fading from the truth, pulling back from absorption so as to make a step forward. This is when we test the truth we think we've come to understand, which then yields more experience for contemplation, and the whole process starts again. This is the endless process of truth receptivity and distillation, wherein we make contact with reality and reflect it within our beingness.

"Collective fears are viewed, then released." - A collective fear could be any socially enforced or promoted fear. For example, the media actively promotes fear of "terrorists" which have become a social norm. It is now socially unacceptable not to fear terrorists. Another example is the fear of death. One who does not fear death and actively shares this perspective is considered strange or abnormal, and one who wants to choose when their life ends is labeled insane. Society as we know it is shaped and molded by collective fears because fear is something we've chosen to remain ignorant of, something we turn away from, and as a result, controls us. If we fear knowledge about health, we'll never learn to be healthy. But when we face our fears, we do more than transcend the emotional state of fear, we actually gain knowledge and wisdom, which provides the basis for personal empowerment. For example, if one fears the smell of their own body, they will form habits and behaviors which attempt to avoid this smell. They will use soaps, perfumes and deodorants to remove and mask their natural odor, which leads to poor skin health and exposure to toxic compounds. But when one begins to embrace their own body, seeking to understand the vital oils and substances it produces, a new way of being can be embraced. I recently went through this transition myself. 

For years, I've had oily skin and I thought that my natural body odors were disgusting. Like a lot of people, I would buy products that strip these oils from my body and use lotions and creams filled with toxic chemicals to replace what was removed. And for most of my life, I've suffered skin problems, such as acne, dry skin on my body, yet too many oils on my scalp and face. But last year I started researching more into the compounds the body produces, and I learned that most of them have beneficial properties. For example, the oils your body produces are perfectly ph-balanced for your skin, which means that once it has been properly coated, your skin will stop producing oil. But if you wash off all the oil on your skin, like most people do in the shower, then the body will go into overdrive seeking to replace what was removed, which causes the dreaded oily skin problem, which can lead to acne if the bodies ph is also acidic. Even sweat and body odor is filled with compounds that feed beneficial bacteria on the body and maintain healthy skin. And, of course, our skin is porous, it absorbs whatever it comes in contact with, which means putting toxic chemicals on it is probably not a good idea. 

Now I'm not saying people shouldn't bathe, but I am saying that washing our skin with harsh chemicals designed to strip and remove essential oils and compounds is not beneficial. As I was having this renaissance, my sister was also learning about completely organic and natural cosmetic products, like facial and body scrubs. She's recently started a business of making them, and almost everyone that uses her products is blown away by how they feel afterward. She told me that there is a growing trend of people who do not use harsh soaps at all and instead only wash with natural soaps about once a week. But on a daily basis, one can take showers and wash with clean water which removes almost all the "bad things" while maintaining the oils and ph our bodies need. At the time, this sounded a bit crazy, even for me, because I was facing a collective fear. "We have to wash our bodies with soap!?! That's what everyone else does!" But her skin looked so healthy from the last time I saw her so I decided to try it. She gave me a homemade facial cleanser with coconut oil, honey, essential oils and granulated sugar for exfoliation. She said to use it twice a week, and only use clean water to wash my face. On the first day, I noticed an immediate difference. My pores and skin didn't have that oily pot marked appearance they normally did after scrubbing with soap. And instead of having to rewash my face again after a few hours, from being so greasy, my skin maintained a healthy glow for the entire day. After three days, all my acne cleared up, and what scars I had from before began to fade away. Now, some two months later, I've been following the protocol and my skin has never looked so healthy and vibrant. 

I wanted to share this anecdote because it exemplifies the theme of this statement and update, which is all about the transcendence of old patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that no longer serve us. In this case, collective fears about my own body, and what society tells me I should be doing with it were causing me to suffer, and I didn't even know it. Yet once I transcended my fear, which was only possible via acting on a truth I had opened myself up to, I gained personal empowerment and wisdom. Now when I think of the collective fear associated with "cleaning my body with harsh soaps" it seems foolish. I think this statement is highlighting the fact that testing new knowledge with experience is essential to gain bravery for overcoming fear. If I never tested and really contemplated what my sister was saying, and what I was learning on my own, I never would have had the prerequisite knowledge needed to make a new choice. In this way we must constantly be pushing the limits of what we know and reconsider our past choices and beliefs, for our knowledge is always expanding via experience, and with it, new wisdom is gained to make better and more harmonious choices.

"Emanations of Inner Greatness of Spirit come to the fore." - The term emanation refers to an abstract yet perceptible thing that comes from a definite source. For example, the sound of a girl singing can be thought of as a vocal emanation. In this case, the emanations are of Inner Greatness of Spirit, which we could further define in several different ways. Firstly, the term spirit refers to a quintessential quality or essence of a thing, which is non-physical. For example, the spirit of fellowship, is the quality social creatures have in making contact with their fellows. Or the spirit of awakening is the quality of opening oneself to the truth and being transformed as a result. These qualities are manifested in material forms, yet the principle behind them is beyond physical. Inner Greatness we could define as the potentials of an individual, their unique attributes, which are vested only within them and no other. For example, while everyone can sing to some degree, the quality and character of your voice, is unmatched. No one can sing with your voice, only you can. Expanding this idea to its ultimate end, each individual has a unique potential or life path. Each individual embodiment came into the creation for a specific purpose, usually encompassing a seemingly infinite number of quintessential (spiritual) goals, which from an outward perspective may not seem different. But if we consider that the most unique component of ourselves is arguably our personal perspective, then even the act of standing witness to a thing is a supreme and ultimate act of Inner Greatness. Again, your perspective is unmatched, no one can see through your eyes, no one can imagine what you imagine, no one can be you. As a result, each moment of life is quite literally a supreme expression of our unique spiritual essence. But when we actually choose to see the truth of this, when we really know and understand that every moment and every space is sacred, then an emanation of Inner Greatness of Spirit comes to the fore. 

How often do you invoke a feeling of gratitude for your unique perspective on ALL that is? How often do you take the time to really appreciate your vantage point on the unfolding drama of universal creation? How often do you really honor the sublime gift of perspective entrusted to you by the creator? 

I would say that most people rarely if ever develop a true sense of complete spiritual gratitude, most likely due to collective fears. As we discussed above, it's just not socially acceptable to love life to its fullest. As the adage goes, misery loves company—and most people are disillusioned with life and the suffering of this world, which is an understandable conclusion to draw. But as the first statement of this update suggests, compliance is fading, and with it, collective fears are released. This process is not an unconscious one. We can't sit quietly and wait for the universe to do the work for us. We actually have to go within using our consciousness and seek out our fears so as to move past them. And once we've found fear within, seek the truth and act on what we discover. Without acting on this new truth, the fear stays alive within us, but when we take that first step in testing new waters, emanations of Inner Greatness of Spirit come to the fore. We actually recognize and see the value in this new way of being, and the whole process of self-realization proceeds on.

"Posthumous ramblings comply." - The term posthumous refers to something appearing or being rewarded after the death of the originator. For example, if a mother and father couple to produce a child, but the father dies before it is born, when born, the birth would be referred to as a posthumous. The term rambling means speech or writing that is inconsequential or lacks substance, and also refers to the growth of plants or vines that climb up walls or trees. Given the meaning of these two terms, a posthumous rambling would be the rippling after-effects of one's deeds that come after their death. And if we expand the concept of death to include ego transformation, acts of personal growth attendant with making contact with the truth, then a posthumous rambling would be the changes in one's life resulting from conscious ego death. These changes would comply with the truth in general or Universal Law, but more specifically be in harmony with the emanations of Inner Greatness of Spirit realized as a result of acting on new knowledge.

In other words, when we finally let go of old beliefs that no longer serve us, we are literally changed, and as a result, our behavior also changes. The effects which follow the causes of inner change pour out as ramblings of secondary causal events. For example, when you finally recognize the truth about toxic chemicals in fast foods, you'll most likely never want them again. This inner change is reflected outwardly as a change in your behavior when being presented with the offer of fast food. Before you would eat the fast food when seeing it, now you do not. The person who desired fast food is now dead, and in their place, another being was born, who does not desire fast food. This new being complies with the essence of the transformational moment, meaning, this new being won't want fast food any longer because the new identity emanated from a moment of inner realization. 

This final statement in the update seems to be suggesting a sequential result of going through a personal transformation. Again, when we face societal fears, we transcend social conformity. Social conformity imparts a type of false bravery, wherein we're motivated to do something because everyone else is doing it too, instead of developing an understanding of why we should value doing it ourselves. Therefore, when we replace social values with personal values, we make contact with emanations of Inner Spiritual Greatness, and the trappings of society have less power over us. This appears to be happening on a global level at this point, with each person experiencing transformation in the form and character they are able to receive it.

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.
