Processes of alluvial alignments call forth the embattled.

Stalwarts in Light bearings continue the forward movement.

Hamlerites continue.

Crystalline features are strangthened in all.

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: "Processes of alluvial alignments call forth the embattled." - The term alluvium refers to deposits of sand, silt, rock, and debris that settles in a valley or delta of a flowing river, usually producing fertile soil. Generally, speaking the term refers to an aggregation of beneficial compounds as a function of a slow and steady process. The term embattled refers to a group or place preparing for war or conflict, usually because of being surrounded by enemies. Alluvial alignments within the context of this statement would refer to a system of coordinated motion that facilitates the accumulation of things, whether physical or metaphysical, that support growth. In a metaphysical context, the seeking of truth requires strength of character and emotional fortitude, suggesting that whatever these alignments are they are assisting the process of opening one's mind and heart to the truth.

I just so happened to notice that the Scorpio Full Moon occurred from the 21st to the 22nd. Scorpio energies in this capacity would help facilitate death of the negative ego (letting go of falseness) and rebirth of the universal self. As we've discussed before, the creation of the negative ego is a consequence of consciousness indwelling a body coupled with the process of forgetting. As souls, we incarnate into the physical on Earth losing touch with soul memory, and leaving us to be tempted by the trappings of materiality. While this seems like a cosmic mistake, it is one method of creating wisdom within one's beingness without having the support of universal knowledge and knowingness. In other words, the ability to act in harmony with our soul purpose or universal law, despite our state of amnesia, is an incredible opportunity for soul growth and spiritual attainment. The Law of One refers to this density, the density where the Law of Confusion reigns, as the place where the greatest leaps in soul growth take place, hence the incarnation of starseeds and wanderers who come here to make great strides in their growth.

In addition, the number 23, in relation to the number 22 is symbolic of the progress of consciousness as it moves from the minor arcana of the Tarot to the major arcana. Given that the period of Scorpio Full Moon occurred on the 21st and 22nd of April, it suggests that those of us who were embattled against falseness—arguably everyone on the planet—was profoundly supported by cosmic energies. Given all this, I think this statement is suggesting that the potential for soul growth and evolution, as a direct result of conscious death is easier now. Always will the habits, beliefs, and worldviews of the past tempt us to stagnate, which is a manifestation of the negative ego. And until we consciously create a new identity, via imagination and intuitive exploration, the negative ego will overshadow our highest pursuits. Developing the ability to imagine ourselves in an ideal form, in many different life circumstances, especially ones that challenge us, is the key to transcending the negative ego and activating latent talents, skills and abilities within ourselves.

"Stalwarts in Light bearings continue the forward movement." - The term stalwart refers to a loyal or hardworking person or group of people, one who can be relied on to accomplish a task. The term bearing refers to one's position or describes the relation or relevance of a thing. Given this, the phrase stalwarts in Light bearings could refer to those beings with adept skill and wisdom tasked with the job of shining their light unto the world, a world filled with darkness. For example, to someone who has never seen what unselfish love looks like, sharing wisdom with a homeless person seems like a futile and stupid effort. But after one sees that in sharing this love, the homeless person is uplifted, a new appreciation for sharing wisdom is developed in the observers. In this way, when we who know the truth, act it out, despite social pressure not to, we set the example for others. In this way, to stalwartly do what is right even though it goes against society, is an invaluable act of loving service, a continued progression of forward movement. I suggest that this statement is directed toward those way-showers who are acting as beacons of light for those embattled at this time. And by following our ideas and standing in our truth, we help others to do the same. But, of course, we must always seek the wisdom in our own actions, looking to make perfect our truth, and never conceiving of ourselves as already reaching the mountain top.

"Hamlerites continue." - The term hamlerites has no official meaning, but it appears to be the merger of the word hamlet and ites, a suffix referring to a group of people associated with a place, philosophy, ideology and so on. Generally, the suffix ites encompasses a body of individuals commonly associated with some belief or ideology. For example, the Israelites are people described by Abrahamic religions as those who escaped Babylonian enslavement. A hamlet is a small town or village. Given these meanings, this short statement seems to be referring to the process of forming communities around a common belief, ideology or goal. The search for like-minded people, especially within the awakening community, can be thought of as a hamleritic process, a function of mind gravity gathering up those souls via magnetic attraction to prepare for some kind of group working. One can make great strides along the path of truth in solitary states, yet eventually, knowledge gained through research and contemplation must be lived out to become wisdom. When gathering with others, our highest envisioned ideal self can be invoked and grounded it more powerfully into the unconscious mind. In this way, acting in the knowledge we've gained in life is one technique to reprogram our subconscious trigger associations. And in general, the formation of communities or small hamlets of like-minded people is the genesis of a new way of being. Consider that the body forms small communities of cells for a specialized purpose, which then integrate with larger communities to form an organ or body tissue. At this stage, developing oneself in a communal setting is an excellent way to draw on emotional support for the conscious death experience referenced in the first statement of this update. And if each member of the forming hamlet sees their personal growth to the fullest expression, consciously choosing to let the negative ego die, great strides in spiritual attainment can take place.

"Crystalline features are strangthened in all." - The term strangthened has no official meaning, but strongly resembles the term strengthened. For the purpose of this analysis, we will assume it is a typo and meant to be strengthened. The phrase crystalline features refers to a system of holistic organization, of fractal coordination. Consider that crystals form as a result of an additive process joining one molecule onto the next which expresses a singular principle or framework of organization. Hence, the formation of discrete geometries that are unique to the compounds used to create them. In other words, a crystal is a marker of a high degree of organization or evolution. If crystalline features are being strengthened in all, then this suggests that that which was already forming and organizing is reaching a new level of attainment, an alchemical process. The material being organized is of consciousness or the mind, which includes everything that comes into our awareness, such as emotions, feelings, intuition and so on. The mind is the place where these insights are deciphered and organized into knowledge, which can then be acted on to form wisdom. Wisdom is a crystalline representation of true knowledge, becoming more than just a belief or idea. Wisdom is the expression of intellectual knowledge integrated and married to experience via emotion, producing a layer of crystallization that becomes the foundation for new work. In other words, the more truth we act on in our lives the more empowered in our beingness we become, and the more radiantly we shine our light into the world, acting as transmuters of darkness into light. Each man and woman is a star unto themselves.

Taking this into account, this statement seems to be referring to the fruits of growth each one of us is experiencing as a result of passing through the alluvial alignments discussed above. Of course, the further along the path we progress the more conscious and focused we must become. We can make strides in our initial growth via unconscious processes, but eventually the universe wants us to have more than blind faith or belief, it wants us to develop true knowledge and wisdom. For one who has faith in a process can achieve a goal, but not through direct knowing. A cook might be able to assemble random ingredients into a palatable dish, but only a wise chef can consistently envision and create food with consistency and skill. Ever must we seek to make conscious that which is unconscious, ever must we seek to gain knowledge and develop wisdom. So long as we maintain our focus on the light of truth, our progress in the creation will become more crystallized into our beingness, imparting strength to all those who make contact with our light.

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.
