Meet Earth’s Cousin: The Newly Discovered Kepler-452B

As you’re probably well aware, a few hours ago, NASA and SETI announced the discovery of Earth’s “older, bigger cousin”. Called Kepler-452b, it’s the first almost-Earth-sized planet that’s been found in the habitable zone of a star very similar to our Sun, and the Internet is kind of freaking out about it.

During the briefing, the scientists also announced the discovery of 11 other habitable planet candidates, so what’s so special about Kepler-452b? Well, we’re glad you asked, because there’s quite a lot. For starters, this is our best candidate so far for an ‘Earth 2.0’, and it could also be the ideal place to look for extraterrestrial life.

Could Earth's cousin be our first point of contact with ET's?
Could Earth’s cousin be our first point of contact with ET’s?

Here’s everything we know so far:

  • Kepler-452b is orbiting a star called Kepler-452, located 1,400 light-years away in the Cygnus constellation of the Milky Way.
  • The planet is 1.6 times bigger than Earth.
  • Earlier research shows that planets of this size “have a good chance” of being rocky, just like Earth.
  • Kepler-452b is orbiting a G2-type star, like our Sun.
  • The planet is in the habitable zone, which means that it’s far enough away from its sun that its water won’t evaporate, but close enough so that it won’t freeze.
  • A year on Kepler-452b lasts 385 days, so the planet is only 5 percent further from its star than Earth is from the Sun.
  • The planet is likely to have an atmosphere, lots of clouds, and possibly active volcanoes.
  • Its parent star Kepler-452 is 6 billion years old (1.5 billion years older than our Sun).
  • Kepler-452 has the same temperature, and is 20 percent brighter, and 10 percent larger in diameter than our Sun.
  • Because it’s orbiting a larger star, it’s likely to be slightly warmer than Earth.nasa

All of this is pretty damn exciting when you consider the fact that NASA has spent decades searching for a potential new home for humanity, but some of these points are worth highlighting further.

For starters, the fact that Kepler-452b is orbiting a G2-type star is hugely important, because all the other Earth-sized planets that we’ve found so far are orbiting stars that are cooler and smaller than our Sun.

And then there’s the age of its star, which is 1.5 billion years older than our Sun, meaning it’s had a lot longer for any potential life to evolve.

“It’s awe-inspiring to consider that this planet has spent 6 billion years in the habitable zone of its star; longer than Earth,” Kepler’s lead data analyst, John Jenkins, said in a press release. “That’s substantial opportunity for life to arise, should all the necessary ingredients and conditions for life exist on this planet.”Kepler425b

We should step in here and make it clear that we still know very little about Kepler-452b, and have no way of saying for sure whether it’s habitable at this point. The planet was discovered the same way that pretty much all exoplanets are – by the Kepler spacecraft monitoring the slight ‘dip’ in the brightness of its star as it passed in front of it.

This has been followed up with ground-based observations from telescopes in the US, which is why we know so much about the brightness of the planet’s host star, and the potential nature of the planet. The results have been submitted for publication in the Astrophysical Journal.

But given the fact that Kepler-452b 1,400 light-years away, we’re going to need much stronger telescopes than we have right now to actually see the planet, and get some insight into what’s going on there. And fortunately, we’re about to get one that will be perfect for the job – the James Webb Telescope.

The successor to the Hubble Space Telescope is scheduled to launch in October 2018, and will be 100 times more powerful than Hubble, making it capable of seeing events that happened in the Universe 13.5 billion years ago.

During the briefing, NASA explained that it plans to use the telescope to perform an atmospheric analysis of Kepler-452b, providing us with some important information on just how habitable it really is. And we’re so damn excited to see those results.

In the meantime, I guess we should work on figuring out how we might be able to get to our potential new home. Warp drive, anyone?

While we may not yet know enough to say whether Kepler-452b is habitable or not, we’ll leave you with this NASA gif, which perfectly sums up why this news is worth getting a little hyped-up over (hint: the green band signifies the habitable zone).

Personally I can’t help but wonder, if let’s say humanity had another chance (apart from the million previous ones), with the knowledge and technology of today, a “reset” on Earth’s ecosystem, would we make the same mistakes or not? Or would we start afresh to create a new reality where Love and Unity would prevail? Would this new world help us “cure” poverty,hunger, war on a collective level? Would it help us anchor the new paradigm shift?

Let us know in the comment section bellow!

Guided Meditation: Letting Go & Welcoming New Beginnings

If lately we have been guided to take more time for ourselves, go within more often and focus on inner work, from now we’re going to kick it up a notch. That doesn’t mean there won’t be inner work involved, but the energies will shake things up a little bit in the outer as we move forward internally, which is why it is necessary to surrender to the flow and just embrace the changes that are happening. These changes are aligned with our highest good, eventhough at times it might look like the opposite to our minds. If you can manage to quiet the mind and connect deeper within, you will know it is so and integrate that in all your present moments.

That is why I have found this wonderful meditation to assist with the removal of blockages that keep us from moving forward and the surrender of all resistance. Through meditations like this one we can make sure that we are consciously flowing with the changes and we are energetically, physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally ready to do so. Sometimes, unconsciously, changes make us uncomfortable on many levels and that comes mostly from resisting them, which is why we have to become aware of the root of that resistance and shift from there. When we embrace, allow and surrender, we naturally enjoy all the changes as we’re supposed to. They are to be celebrated! Rejoice:

Ascension Update: Rainbow Activations ~ Ouroboros ~ Nature Messengers

2015 hasn’t even started that long, but it’s already showing its magnificence.  As a result the Full Moon (Wolf Moon) on the 4th of January, that facilitated a deeper cleansing and transformation, embracing more of our aspects and becoming Whole on All levels, a huge shift happened.

On the 7th of January my teeth were hurting really bad and from what I can tell, teeth are like magnets for energy that needs transformation.  Eventually, I soothed my pain, transformed all that with some Violet Flame energy work and with the assistance of my Teams. Then on the next day, January 8th, I was just doing my daily thing, nothing out of the ordinary, just taking time for myself, meditate or whatever I feel guided to do in those moments.

So, I connected with some of my Aspects, Teams and other Beings, relaxed to just see what comes  through. The next thing I know I am being bathed in this rainbow energy and my chakras and energy field expand once again. I feel this gentle energy anchoring deep within and then I ground it into the Earth. This is not the first time I am working with this serene rainbow energy, but this time a New Higher Level has been reached.

What I am receiving about it is that this is a Rainbow Activation. Synchronistically, Gaia Portal has posted this just now “Star Children are born again” , you can click on the name to check it out. Anyways, the whole time I was receiving this activation, all I could hear was the word “Harmony.” This is the main characteristic of this rainbow energy, which is a representation of the New Earth that is currently manifesting physically.

This wave felt like a „Gift” for the inner work, constant service and dedication we have shown, and what I am feeling is this is just a small preview of the many blessings that lay ahead.  With this wave came Light downloads, new understandings and my perception has been expanded once again. This was definitely a „Graduation”  and I know many of you have been experiencing it too. I am merely sharing my own personal experience of it. We are all experiencing these activations/upgrades in our own unique ways.

I think what’s most important to keep in mind during these moments of integration is making sure you are grounded into the Earth, otherwise these waves of energy will just float around  you. You will not anchor within yourself, embody and internalize all that, basically you will not fully experience it, unless you are grounded. That’s one of the reasons grounding is such an important aspect of our Ascension.

The messages in dreams and visions have also been very clear and vivid. We’re definitely doing a lot of intense work during sleep time too. What I have been shown in my dreams a lot lately and what I feel guided to share is Ouroboros.

This is what Wikipedia says about it:

„The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. „

” The Ouroboros often symbolizes self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things such as the phoenix which operate in cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. It can also represent the idea of primordial unity related to something existing in or persisting from the beginning with such force or qualities it cannot be extinguished. “

„Ouroboros symbolism has been used to describe Kundalini energy. According to the second century Yoga Kundalini Upanishad, “The divine power, Kundalini, shines like the stem of a young lotus; like a snake, coiled round upon herself she holds her tail in her mouth and lies resting half asleep as the base of the body” (1.82). Another interpretation is that Kundalini equates to the entwined serpents of the caduceus of the Greek god Hermes, the entwined serpents representing divine balance in the west or, esoterically, human DNA. „

I think this is a pretty clear message about the process we are undergoing right now: DNA Activations, Kundalini rising, but also embracing all of our aspects becoming Unified/Whole as New Divine Humans. We are going to see more of this in this next period of time as they will amplify. Make sure you give yourself enough time to rest, relax and also hydrate, so these integrations/activations/upgades can happen smoothly. Your body ~ Your temple.

Another message Spirit has shown to me are nature messengers ~ the beautiful blackbirds. Spirit really wanted me to get this message out there, in the past 2 days I have seen 3 blackbirds right in front of my window, looking at me with curiosity, shaking their feathers like they were dancing. I have expressed my gratitude for they were confirming some things my Heart was feeling, their message was very empowering for me.

The message of the blackbird for me was that since 2015 is the Year of Self-Discovery, Self-Mastery and Creativity,  many people are going to kick it up a notch as they progess on their Divine Soul Mission. Creative Ideas, New Skills, Abilities(maybe more like discovering/activating the skills and abilities you are already carrying within your DNA) and New opportunities that are in alignment with the New Ways will manifest effortlessly now, but it takes courage, dedication and a choice to follow your Heart and Intuition/Inner Guidance at all times. This shouldn’t be so hard as it is part of our natural state of Being to do so, but it does take self-mastery and just allowing things to to unfold at their own pace. We are our Soul Mission and you can’t fail at Being.

Red-winged-blackbird-perched

This is what what’s-your-sign.com is saying about the symbolism of the blackbird.

“The symbolic meaning of blackbirds is eternally linked to the “dark vs light” phases of the moon. I’m talking nocturnal awareness. Illumined lunar understanding which requires a different use of the senses. Sense which can only be utilized when transformative devotion is made. A commitment to higher knowing (flight) and an acceptance of the void (infinite vastness that eludes the ego and rational mind).

This is a fundamental concept of alchemy which is: Transition and Transformation. The bird is symbolic of life in the heavens (higher ideals, higher path of knowing) and the color black is symbolic ofpure potential. Between the two, there is no limit to human transformation – all we have to do is close the shutters of the rational mind, and start sojourning with our darkly feathered friends.

Black birds (in general) are archetypes of living life in higher realms, and are symbolic of:

  • Higher Intelligence
  • Higher Thought
  • Higher Ideals
  •  It is no simple mind that summons these onyx beauties. Thankfully, these sky-clad lovelies will never come to a person who is not equipped to read the deeper meanings behind its presence. Better said: If you did not already know the answers, you would have never had the encounter. “

You have to ask yourself if these Spirit Messages mean something for you and what do they mean ? Maybe they have a different meaning for you, than they had for me. Or have you received any Spirit Messages/Signs that you might have overlooked ? Being aware of them is quite important, so make sure you pay attention to them.  As always, use your Heart’s Wisdom to bring forth their significance for you.

Overall, this year is already quite exciting, we are literally going through uncharted territories and it’s quite the adventure. A playful, whimsical part of me is saying “YASSSS! ” right now. LOL

Much Love, Wisdom and Power,  <– 🌈 Harmony 🌈

Love and Light.
