I must say that when all of Earth jumped on the spiritual train ascending to the Higher Realms, I knew that raising one’s consciousness to get there was no small task. The celestial promises that began with the Harmonic Convergence in the 80’s and the more recent influx of HUGE energies on 12-12-12 and 12-21-12 brought me to my knees with the humility of one who is relatively new to the spiritual awakening scene, compared to many of my colleagues who boast of their lifelong journey of inner knowing and extra-sensory gifts. Sometimes I think of myself as a spiritual gate crasher- it was not until I entered my forties did I begin to embrace profound shifts in my consciousness and abilities-… ready or not here I come, as they say. Maybe your intuitive gifts are revealing themselves at a pace which is difficult to understand. If so, seek guidance from someone you trust and one who walks their talk.
Releasing old ideas to which the ego is savagely hanging onto is difficult enough but rewarding in ways that only doing so reveals- old relationships that used to suck the life out of you and question your sanity are replaced by new friends who know that “crazy” is the new normal when it comes to fully embracing ‘far-out’ spiritual ideas that drastically differ from religious dogma and offer a more reasonable and affordable path to ascension. A knowing that WE ARE what we are seeking, and that the Divine WITHIN is the way to understand our own powerful nature as creator of our reality. Those who call such ideas “nonsense” have vanished from our everyday experience and, thankfully, we are finding our soul groups that welcome us with understanding minds, loving hugs and open hearts.
Seeing the mirror of our own shortcomings in others is yet another challenge that reveals where we need to shift, if we want others to do the same. This is a drastic new way of perceiving ourselves and, perhaps, a little uncomfortable. When I see something that I dislike in another, I must ask where is that same characteristic played out in me? Shocking results show up in the mirror that reveals that like does attract like- just as science tells us. Opposites attract, too. And their place in our lives are for the learning of important and profound lessons.
As we integrate the higher energies of ascension, our body’s cells are actually changing and shifting their electromagnetic frequencies, in tandem with the shifts on Earth verified by the scientific community. As below so above… Everything in our experience begins to change, including our dreams, our appetites, our emotions, and our desires. Sometimes this is welcomed and sometimes the changes are upsetting, as we must let go of all that is out of sync for our profound awakening.
Here are some helpful hints for riding the ups and downs of energy waves crashing onto our planet and into our lives:
- Ground yourself each and every day by centering in your heart and sending a beautiful energetic cord of Light down through the layers of Earth to her core. Invite Mother Earth’s supporting energies up this cord and into your heart, feeling deep gratitude for being totally provided for in this incarnation.
- Pay attention to your dreams and the subtle guidance of Spirit that often comes through in messages within the lyrics of music, headlines on billboards and even on car stickers, license plates. The unusual appearance of certain birds and butterflies, too, can open up awareness of valuable information sent from your guides and loved ones across the veil. Look to the heavens and pay attention to the cloud formations and sky-scapes.
- Honor your feelings without judgement and release old thought patterns of negativity that are self-limiting. Do the same for others.
- Make space in your busy life to connect with Nature and all of the healing energies that avail themselves when you do this. The Light grids on Earth are upgrading as well, so this connection is vital for integrating higher frequencies and also staying grounded.
- Remain focused in your Center, which is the HEART. Breathe from your Heart… show compassion for others, set your boundaries with love; shine your LIGHT from your Heart!
- Balance is KEY. Allow enough time, energy and focus on all three: Body, Mind & Spirit.
- Connect with like-minded individuals, as you are definitely not on this amazing path alone.
