Gaia Portal - June 16th 2016: Levels of Ascendance encompass the Gaia energetics - with interpretations by Justin

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

Source - Gaia Portal

Levels of Ascendance encompass the Gaia energetics.

Fortitudes of individuals create from the depths.

Flashes of montanas are viewed.

Altered states are abandoned.

Streams of fluency come to the fore.

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: "Levels of Ascendance encompass the Gaia energetics." - The phrase Levels of Ascendence is most likely a reference to zones or boundary conditions which mark certain regions of accomplishment. For example, when one has ascended to the state of recognizing the inherent sovereignty of all life (the right to life) then this would be marked by a change in their behavior so as to embody this high ideal, such as acting with harmlessness. The term encompass refers to an encircling or enfolding. The orbit of Mars encompasses the Sun, the Earth, Venus, and Mercury. Gaia energetics is most likely a reference to the Earth's energy body, which would include any system of motion, such as the lithosphere (volcanos and earthquakes), but also "energetic" phenomena, such as the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and the like.

The levels of ascendance in question are not specified here, but we can generally assume that it is a reference to higher order life capable of making the choice between the evolutionary paths, service to others and service to self. We can assume that Gaia is service to others for many reasons, probably the most obvious is that the way in which life manifests on Earth is largely symbiotic oppose to parasitic.

Taking all this into account, the statement seems to be implying that those individuals who are evolving in consciousness are reaching levels of harmony with Gaia, wherein, the same goals of spiritual evolution are reflected within their minds. In other words, when we walk the path of truth and seek to integrate the wisdom inherent in experience, we ascend and eventually reach levels of attainment where we can begin to take part in Gaia's energetics, her motion or "dancing." An example of this would be restoring the environment and healing life, which is not how most people operate. The bulk of humanity, even those who call themselves awake, continue to destroy the environment and hinder Gaia's plan.

"Fortitudes of individuals create from the depths." - The term fortitude refers to having courage or bravery while experiencing pain or adversity. For example, the courage to detoxify our bodies from deleterious addictive habits requires fortitude to move past initial stages of temptation. The quality of fortitude is a description of mental discipline and spiritual strength. Fortitudes of individuals create from the depths, given this meaning, is suggestive of the inner strength a collective draws upon when experiencing social change. Arguably a clear example of this is the collective awakening humanity is presently going through, which requires incredible personal fortitude to continue to stay on the path of truth. This statement seems to be referring to the fact that when we gain the inner strength to pass through a time of tribulation (a test from the universe) we create from the depths, meaning, a deep and fundamental change has occurred within. The mystery schools of old called this initiation, and as we've discussed often in these interpretations, reality itself changes consciousness. But fortitude is more than just change of consciousness, it is a union of free will and dedication to adhering to an ideal. An ideal is a goal or vision we contend is of great value, something we aspire to do or accomplish, usually realized as a Level of Ascendence. That is to say, when we've realized an ideal that is in harmony with the universe, we've ascended or gained spiritual wisdom.

"Flashes of montanas are viewed." - The term montanas has no official meaning in the English language, nor am I able to glean any cultural reference. But montanas could be referring to the Spanish word MontaƱa, meaning mountain. In which case, a flash of montanas would be a flash of mountains, a spike or peak. Within mathematics, a spike on a graph is indicative of a state of maximization. For example, during an earthquake, the time when the ground is moving the strongest would appear as a peak or spike on a seismometer. Given this interpretation, the statement seems to be referring to the effects of the preceding two statements in reference to Levels of Ascendence and creation via fortitude. In other words, when we've overcome personal karma, when we've moved past a personal challenge, a spike in activity is recognized or experienced. And since the term viewed is used in this statement, it suggests a literal raising of one's consciousness to the height of a mountain has taken place, which of course allows one to view more of a landscape. 

"Altered states are abandoned." - An altered state generally refers to a condition generated by something, either drugs, meditation, or otherwise. Given that these states are abandoned it suggest that they are not productive for one's evolution. Therefore, the states of consciousness referenced here are most likely ones which cause dissociation instead of integration. For example, drinking alcohol reduces one's sensitivity to reality, which is rightly called an altered state. Anything we choose to do that causes our consciousness to pull away from reality and focus on one thing or another, within the context of this statement is an altered state. This is a condition of separation, and given that evolution is a function of integrating the whole of reality within our consciousness, any state of being which is separate by nature is not productive for ascension. This statement seems to be referring to the fact that as we evolve in consciousness we no longer seek to escape reality (separation consciousness) and instead integrate or merge with the whole of our experience.

"Streams of fluency come to the fore." - The term fluency refers to a state of prowess or skill whereby one is considered competent or adept. A musician who no longer needs to read music from the page is fluent in the piece they are playing. A stream of fluency is suggestive of a specific or focused period when one is expressing fluency or skill with respect to one thing or another. For example, we may feel that our greatest capacity to learn is in the morning or a night when we experience a stream of fluency in comprehending something. But here, the suggestion is that these streams of fluency are because of the preceding statements in this update, each of which requires an act of will to realize. In other words, in order to progress and ascend, we must make the right choices for our personal evolution, and act on those choices with fortitude. It is difficult to set aside a well-established habit in order to realize a better ideal but once we do, we abandon the previous state of consciousness, and this leaves the space open for streams of fluency to come to the fore. 

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.
