Jennifer Hoffman: Prayer for the 33 Chilean Miners
Ascension Insights — 33 Miners and the World Watches
by Jennifer Hoffman, October 13, 2010, email.
Hi everyone, I’ve been watching the news broadcasts tonight as the 33 miners that have been trapped in a Chilean mine for the past 69 days are now being rescued as the world watches.
This has been a long wait for us. Imagine what it was like for them. In the dark, nearly a half mile below the earth’s surface, alone, totally dependent on the world to find a way to set them free.
The most amazing aspect of this rescue is that it is possible because people from many countries joined together to share their knowledge, experience and heart for the sole purpose of bringing these miners home. And they can set aside their differences, move beyond the limitations of language, culture, political ideals and philosophies to focus on a common goal.
And the world is with them as we watch, in these final hours, as the miners finally get to go home. As each miner is are carefully placed into the small steel cage, those still in the mine cheer on the next one to be freed. There is no fighting or arguing, no pushing to be the first or next one out although I am sure they are all impatient to get out of there. What a victory for the miners, and for us.
As I watched the final preparations this week, I wondered how the miners felt, knowing that their ordeal would soon be over. Were they excited, anxious, a little afraid? The only way out was up through solid rock locked in a tiny steel cage pulled by a rope. (Being claustrophobic, it’s not something I’d be too thrilled about.) So while their ordeal is over they still have a little way to go before they are finally free, and their escape is via a steel cage named ‘the Phoenix’. Does this remind you of anything that is happening in your life?
Where are you struggling in the dark, trapped in some aspect of your life and what do you have to be willing to pass through in order to come out on the other side? Sometimes the way out of a situation can look as difficult as the situation itself. Do you have the courage to take it anyway even if it scares you as much as the situation you are in?
Aside from that, there are two important concepts happening here, the miners’ experience
which reminds us that it is by having faith and trust that we can get through anything and the power of compassion vortexes in connecting the world to change hearts and minds.
Compassion vortexes are created when an event occurs that brings the world together. We have seen then with the tsunami in 2004, the earthquakes in Haiti and in Chile, the children who were taken hostage and killed in Russia, and other disasters or events that make the world pause and send their thoughts and prayers to those affected.
In those moments we are connected, singularly focused on alleviating the suffering of those involved, opening our hearts to empathize with their pain, aware that our humanity can be a source of connection rather than separation.
These vortexes appear so we can open our hearts and minds, bringing us closer together and reminding us that our greatest results are achieved when we work together. They are a Universal test of our ascension progress, of our commitment to learn to be less human and more spiritual, less focused on our fear and pain and willing to see ourselves in each other.
The numerology represented in this event is interesting. There are 33 miners (a master number) and they were in the mine for 69 days. Six represents earth joining to heaven, 9 represents heaven coming to earth and 6+9 is 15, which is also a 6.
Will they all be rescued? What will we learn about the details of their ordeal? How did they survive for so long and what will their lives be like now? We know that they will be forever changed but so are we because through them the world has become a little closer, more hopeful, new friendships have been forged and once again we learned that we create much more powerfully when we are connected than when we see ourselves through our fear and separation.
So as we watch the progress of the rescue until the last miner is brought up we can remember that with hope and faith, anything is possible. And even in our darkest moments there is potential for miracles if we will just stay focused on our intention for whatever we want in our life. Maybe one day we will not need compassion vortexes and the sacrifice that the souls who volunteer for them make to remind us that we are, above all, divine beings having a human experience.
Stay calm, focused, detached and aware and remember your thoughts are creating every
moment of your life. Think the best ones. As you ponder this and the other things that are happening at this time remember to:
Accept all gifts of understanding with gratitude and use them to apply forgiveness, release and healing to every situation.
Ask for guidance and confirmation and then wait for it to come to you.
Above all, be grateful for this opportunity to be part of humanity’s amazing shift in consciousness as we all ascend into the miracle vibration.
Many blessings in these miraculous and amazing times,
