New Energies: A New Way of Life

Everyone is feeling the shift–the motion of photons into new patterns, the alteration of life on the planet, and subtle changes within our perception of life. Sometimes, it’s helpful to recognize aspects of the shift. By simply observing, you become more aware.
1) Everyone desired change when the Mayan calendar ended. We’re experiencing change NOW as the earth shifts. It’s best to stay in the awareness of knowing you are a creator. You have unique abilities to manifest positive change, love, and goodness in this world. (You probably also have the ability to protect the area around you and bring in greater health and vitality to the world.)
2) If you’re awakening, it’s incredibly important to develop your gift as a person who manifests and creates change. Begin with your life. (It’s not about the “things” or objects created through manifestation; it’s about learning to use your universal gift of talents and abilities. Your gifts will come into form if you persevere.)
3) Intuition is growing at a rapid rate as you discover your inner voice and presence. Intuition is affected by thoughts, emotions, and encounters. There is a big difference between intuition derived through meditation and intuition from the outer self. (Discernment is key. Feeling tired or emotional can cause a misread.)
4) Energy moves differently. Our emotions, thoughts, and perceptions of life change with the energetic flow. It can come on hourly or daily basis, plunging us into a higher or lower state. The interesting part of the shift is understanding our inner power to alter the placement of our vibrations. We can focus on pink light or imagine ourselves in a higher state of being. (This works in minutes, hours, or days, depending on the focal point of consciousness.)
5) The same energetic aspect applies to health, which can vary from highly energized to exhaustion. The shift in health can relate to activities, people in our lives, diet, or emotional issues. We are clearing a great deal of energy, and it affects our energy. Sometimes, we sleep more because of the increase in light. We may not remember our dreams because we are processing energy, or we may need a break from the energy of mass consciousness. (It’s helpful to see ourselves as happy, healthy, and energized.)
6) As you clear timelines (relationships, karma/trauma, and events from the past), your perception alters. You may have compassion where you lacked understanding, create boundaries where you had none in the past, or feel greater love for the self. You may also find greater courage and trust. (This can involve dropping old friends and connections while finding new ones.)
7)  You know a Bigger Force is at play, and it wants the best for you. There is a deep realization of the power of letting go while tuning into this beautiful energy of love and light, which guides you into inspired action.  (On the light worker level, there is an understanding that we share our light best when we align with our true presence. It doesn’t matter if we work from 9-5 and/or where we work. Wherever we are, we lift up the world by aligning with our inner presence.)

Choosing a Higher Frequency

 

Part of spiritual work involves shifting our energy from lower to higher frequencies. It’s normal to feel oscillation, the swing between a higher and lower state when participating in spiritual work. We also react to other people’s vibrations, the perception of problems, and mass consciousness. In other words, specific aspects of life cause our frequency to descend.

Typically, we experience lower emotions in these circumstances. But there is always a way to ascend above an issue.

1) Raising our vibrations through meditation and devotion to practice always helps because this renews and strengthens our connection to the “light.” It raises our consciousness into a more awakened state.

2) Our vision and visualizations of life profoundly affect our experience of “real” life. Our vision of life is based on our perceptions and beliefs; it widens as we move into universal truth. Everyone creates visualizations of life, which are accompanied by emotions. (Ironically, we tend to amplify and review unhappy events more than positive ones. It requires changing our habits to see life in a different way.)

3) We also use projection and visualization in the outer world. For example, reflecting on pollution in the physical world is realistic, but if we create images in our mind, experience feelings of upset, and focus on it, we create more of the same. We can acknowledge a state as “truth” and follow it with a visualization, which creates resolution—or at least a higher vibration. For example, we could see a clean earth and ocean while imagining a beautiful planet.

4) Higher vibration is often the frequency needed for problem solving. Problems and patterns tend to exist on a lower frequency; solutions come on a higher vibration. (Healthy boundaries also come from the higher self.) Reaching this state of being can come from recalling positive memories, creating experiences, which bring happiness, and moving more deeply into connection. (Obviously, believing in a positive outcome is part of the work.)

5) Focusing on the heart space and the vibration of love can help a great deal with any situation because it teaches the art of placing the consciousness in one of the infinite qualities of the universe. (Pink light can be used for the sensation of love.)

Gently Altering the World

 

Maybe, we can’t change the world instantly, but there is a great deal we can do in the world around us. 

Part of the challenge lies in becoming creative–and seeing and feeling something different. If we hold light and change our perception, we alter the frequency around us. This act also leads to knowledge of the inner self. 

Here are my favorite techniques.

  1. Focus on a personal feeling of peace. Notice how it feels and expand this inner state to the surrounding area. Imagine everyone and everything encompassed n a wave of peace. Feel the peace like waves in an ocean.
  2. Send pink light to every particle and atom in the space around you. Pink light is unconditional love, and it lifts everything in its sphere. (Sometimes, it’s easier to send pink light as opposed to “love” because we color the feeling of love with many personal preferences.)
  3. It’s important to learn to pause whenever we feel discordant energy between ourselves and another human being. It’s helpful to pull back our energy and briefly see the other person’s point of view or feeling. From this place, imagine seeing their inner light. (This is simply to clear energy and remove them from our energy field.) In general, pause whenever emotions are strong. Pull back into the inner self.
  4. Separate from mass consciousness (lower global consciousness, including emotion) often. The entire world is changing, and it moves between light and darkness. Ask for alignment with the inner self when life feels heavy and difficult. Focus on the feeling of the flow when accompanied by a wave of happiness. (The overall energy should change in an hour or two.)
  5. Learn to see the opposite of the difficult side of life. The images in our mind travel very quickly as we become more psychic. If we focus on a negative, world happening, we actually intensify it. It’s helpful to see the opposite of the difficulty, move into the heart, and ask the universe to provide the feeling of an answer. (Of course, it’s also helpful to send the feeling of the answer out into the world. Somewhere, someone is meditating and/or praying. They will receive the feeling and amplify it.)
  6. Spend time in nature. Ground the body and take time to see the perfection of leaves, flowers, and wildlife. This practice eases the pressure, aligning body and spirit.
  7. Practice faith, hope, and courage. It takes faith to create strong, positive visions. It takes courage to continue to see them, and it requires faith and hope to make a consistent effort. But it’s also how we learn to believe in ourselves–and our inner work.

After the Eclipse

Image by Emily Ballivet

 

Beautiful, new energies came in with the eclipse, and everyone, who is awakening, will eventually feel and experience them. At this point, we’re grounding the high energies from Monday’s eclipse through the creative and fiery pattern offered by four trines with Uranus (awakening, sudden change.) It’s likely that we “received” an intuitive plan to change our lives, but time is required to manifest changes in the invisible, spiritual world.

The planetary influences remain creative and intense. Fortunately, the planets are moving into balance with an equal distribution between the elements of earth (physicality), water (emotion, flow), fire (creativity, spirituality) and air (mind). Saturn moves direct on August 25, which will help with work, finances, and structure, and five planets in retrograde provide time for thought and reflection.

The Sun is placed in Virgo, a feminine earth sign, which gives the power to translate our recent experiences and creativity into physical form.  Virgo is represented by the virgin priestess, who utilizes mystical secrets to alter the flow of matter. (Earth teaches us how our desires translate into form along with many, practical lessons.)

Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn trine Uranus, awakening divine consciousness for those, who live in the light, and bringing upsets and restlessness to individuals, who align with a lower vibration. (It’s part of the vibration of divisiveness, which has surfaced in past weeks.)

An emphasis on emotion–throughout the weekend—occurs with Moon in Libra. Almost every planet aspects the moon, denoting a period of unusual, eclectic, or eccentric energy. Moon conjuncts (close to) Jupiter, which is harmonious and amplifies the possibility of good fortune. Moon squares (tension) Venus (love, partnerships) and Pluto (underworld, transformation); it opposes Uranus (awakening, sudden change), which means our emotions regarding love (Venus) and resources (Pluto) can slow our awakening (Uranus).

Mercury (communications) retrograde is also in Virgo and conjuncts the Sun (outer life). This conjunction can aid in linking the higher mind and the fabric of outer life. Mercury retrograde in Virgo can yield unusual, creative information, including intuitions and thoughts that we wouldn’t normally experience. (Use the normal cautions with Mercury retro, avoid starting something new, avoid signing contracts, and use the time to review and complete projects.)

Venus in Cancer squares (tension) Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change), creating an emphasis on examining our thoughts and feelings about relationships, love, and good fortune. Venus in Cancer tends to amplify sensitivity and emotions, which can lower or heighten our vibrations, depending on the placement of consciousness. (It makes loving relationships more difficult.)

Mars sits in a Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus. (Grand Trines increase the potential of manifestation.) Mars rules energy and assertion. Saturn gives structure and insight from the past, and Uranus urges us to move beyond our limitations by experiencing more of the quantum field.  (We may receive ideas about altering our lives or moving in a new direction.)

Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus, presenting a contrast between Jupiter’s desire to flow with the beautiful aspects of life and Uranus’ need to expand life through sudden, dramatic change. (It may be best to take time to experience both energies at different times during the week. Jupiter also squares Pluto (underworld, transformation), and this tends amplify our need for success and wealth, which can be seen in the outer world. But it’s important to take action from the heart with sincerity and honesty.

Saturn moves direct, propelling our lives into new shapes and structures after months of review. Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus, encouraging the use of knowledge from the past to create a new future, particularly in a spiritual sense along with a new vision of the world. Saturn squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), meaning the world at large tends to have difficulty discerning truth and illusion. Saturn also trines the North Node in Leo, which aids with separating out truth and illusion about our own lives—and our spiritual quest.

Uranus (awakening) trines North Node in Leo (current spiritual purpose), strengthening our ability to create change on the basis of the inner self. Neptune (mysticism, illusion) sextiles Pluto (underworld, transformation). This aspect helps in releasing “old” aspects of life and moving on into new reality, based on higher consciousness. It’s another aspect of inner transformation, accentuated by five planets in retrograde. In many ways, this is the perfect time to dream up a new life, release the old, and reflect on life.

Moving through the Shifts of Time

 

A great many shifts are taking place, particularly with the New Moon/Solar Eclipse cycle.  Everyone is passing through a number of small (and large) realizations about life, energy, and the cosmos at large. The energy is intense and changing at a rapid rate. When we understand what it happening and how it affects us, we move more quickly into a higher level of light.

  1. The universe is revealing the truth about our lives, enlarging our perception, and exposing the world at large. At this juncture, the big reveal comes in a strange way. We may perceive higher frequencies and suddenly know how the new, “higher” frequency reality will feel. We may feel dismayed by violence, discrimination, or the world-at-large. We may have moments of realization about how our lives need expansion, the energy of other people, and the need to align with our inner identity. We may feel the weight of mass consciousness–or perceive the immense power of love and meditation on the world. (For those who are more awakened, we may feel surprised when we observe instead of reacting–or resist the push/pull effect of this particular time.)
  2. The shift affects time. As we move into awakening, we mitigate karma. When we transmute karma, our timelines (or memories of this and other lives) alter–simply because we no longer “vibrate” with these types of energy.
  3. Flashes of memories and rapid thought at bedtime are interspersed with periods of deep sleep. The flashes of memories relate to a process of clearing and cleansing our energies throughout this lifetime. The periods of deep sleep relate to healing and discovering more of our true identity–the inner self.
  4. Emotions and the energetic flow of the body change with awakening. We may feel very tired one day and energized on the following day. Additionally, dreams may reveal our lack of confidence, incorrect perceptions, or our ability to change the entire picture through connection with the inner self. (Many of our personal issues can relate to our connection with world consciousness. For example, grief connects us with people who are grieving. A feeling of lack leads to connection with others, who feel they do not have enough. Part of the issue involves changing our image of the world through improvement of personal feelings and vision of the world.)
  5. The flow of life changes on a frequent basis. The energy shifts and feels differently with solar flares, shifts in the geo-magnetic field, and astrological events. As we become more connected, we feel the energy of world events on a deeper level. The seasons and positions of the sun and moon are changing. We are becoming accustomed to “not” knowing how life will feel, which can put us in the flow.
  6. Relationships are changing. As we grow, we continue to move into relationships with people who want to evolve. Sometimes, we simply lack the energy to persist with relationships based on negativity and/or lower energies. We’re also releasing soul contracts, which are agreements to interact in a specific way. (Groups of people with higher frequencies will come together on a conscious level.)
  7. We’re learning to live from the heart, which means intuitively feeling, hearing, and seeing information. It’s how we perceive the invisible and spiritual world, listen to animals, and evolve. It’s also how we perceive the currents of our thoughts and feelings, which influence manifestation to a great degree.

Finding Higher Frequencies

 

Everything is related. When following a desire, we increase and diminish parts of life. Time is a simple example. When we delve into our spiritual practice, we take time away from a previous pursuit. When we see the beauty in nature, we discard other thoughts. (When I write this, I think of nothing else.)

With the influx of energies, there is a shift in perception, feelings, and responses to energy. Many people are awakening and bringing more light to the planet. As awakening continues, we perceive life differently because light causes everything to move at a higher frequency.

Here are a few insights:

  1. As we become more conscious, our awareness shifts. We become aware that “reality” shifts, spins, and stirs with the state of our consciousness, which is reflected in the flow of events. (This may cause positive and negative events in life such as the falling away of specific relationships and/or unexpected opportunities.)
  2. We affect “life” and our lives more than we want to admit. Our lower thoughts and feelings may attract an irritable person, and higher thoughts may pull in a flow of love. (For example, the sun shines when we think a higher thought, or we receive a pleasant email from a loved one.) Conversely, we can also become more sensitive to the negative energy of others, which can mean altering relationships, learning to communicate in a different way, or changing an aspect of life.
  3. Consciousness connects us more deeply to all sources of information and energy. We feel life more intensely. We may feel more drawn or repelled to particular sources of information. Our higher consciousness begins to direct us more strongly. (As we become more intuitive, our “reads” and feelings become more accurate–and are felt more forcefully.)
  4. Energetic changes affect us more. For example, we may feel tired or over-energized with the current planetary changes. We may experience calm or anxiety. (Meditation–and water–help with swings.)
  5. Swings in duality – the movement of emotions and thoughts – may seem stronger. When we experience the inner self, consciousness moves into a place of being centered. It focuses on “ONE” point. Naturally, we’re more aware of the motion after a quiet experience.
  6. Part of the shift can feel painful because it means moving away from people that we refuse to grow and/or releasing aspects of life that are meaningful to us. In a real sense, we’re leaving the past behind, but it doesn’t always feel easy or comfortable.
  7. Increased consciousness brings awareness of our impact on our internal/external state. We begin to understand how our happiness and unhappiness respond to our internal dialog, old beliefs, and expectations. With this awareness, life shifts.
  8. “Giving” and “helping” are subtly changing. We can hold a vision or send light to anyone, but our spiritual help is balanced with the spiritual commitment and effort of the receiver. (In the Piscean Age, healers and light workers gave in a different way by pouring out energy whenever they felt led to share and help. In the Aquarian Age, we balance and gauge energy for the best effect.)
  9. During flashes of awakening, we perceive a beautiful future in a balanced world. There is a feeling of reassurance, comfort, and support. (We may wonder where it is in difficult moments, but it is how the universe shares its visions—and activates it through our light.)

Speaking with Your Angels

Here, Trudy Griswold tells us how it’s done — including an effective  21 day program for learning to receiving clear messages from our guides on a daily basis.

Julia: How do we begin to open to the angelic or divine realms and experience our higher consciousness?

Trudy: This begins with willingness. The beings in this realm want to help us. Most of us can’t see, feel, or hear the angels. However, simply understanding or knowing that they are there is the first step. The angels can teach us to align with our higher consciousness when we begin with this first step.

Once we have attained this knowing that the divine realm exists and is there to help us, there are four steps that can be followed for angelic guidance. These four steps have literally changed my entire life. I have a partnership with my divine group and a true guidance system. My life is so much better. I worry less, and I am so much happier.

The formula for divine guidance is as follows:

    1. Asking is the first step. The angels want to help us, but they cannot help unless we first ask. Learn to ask for what it is that you want or for guidance in whatever problem you need help with. Be very specific. Write down as many details as possible.
    2. The second step is timing. The angels have their own timing. A problem will be resolved at the correct time. Answers always come at the right time.
    3. Letting go is the third step. Let the problem go completely. Let it happen, let the angels flow through
    4. Saying “thank you” is the fourth step. An attitude of gratitude keeps the flow moving. When we are grateful, the energy moves on this wave of appreciation.

The first step comes through the intellect as it forms the question and specifies the details.

The second step comes through the heart — we trust with our hearts that the answer comes at the right time.

The third step comes through the solar plexus as we let go of the emotions surrounding this center.

The fourth step is gratitude for the help that completes the process and lets it flow into action.

Julia: I’m curious. When we ask, how detailed should we make the request?

Trudy: You should be absolutely specific. For example, if you want a new car, don’t just request “a new car.” There are many, many cars in our Universe, and when you ask for a new car, the angels aren’t sure which one you want. Ask for something specific; e.g., “a red 6-cylinder BMW with black upholstery.”

You may wonder why I used a BMW as an example? This is because I wish to deal with the fact that many of us believe it’s selfish to ask for good things, things that make us happy. We’ve been led to believe that we don’t need material possessions. But God and the angels want us to have every single thing that is good.

We can have material possessions without being greedy or selfish. It’s proper to ask for love, a wonderful job, and material possessions. It’s not selfish to want good things for ourselves. God and the angels want to share these wonderful things with us.

At the end of your specific request, you should always add that you are asking for “this or something better.” The Universe may have a better person, car, or job in mind for you, and adding those words to your request leaves the door open.

There is so much goodness in the Universe. It’s just waiting for everyone, but we cannot have what we do not ask for. Learning how to ask is such an important step!

It’s also important to remember that God never gives half of a gift. If you ask for a job in San Francisco, and the job comes, then you need to realize that you will be taken care of as you make each step. God will help you relocate, move, and find new friends. Each step that we make forward will be held in place by the support we have asked for and been given.

Julia: In your books, you say it is very effective to learn how to receive messages through the angels by writing. Can you explain that technique to me?

Trudy: First of all, you can say a prayer before you start the exercises, and ask the angels to be with you. Prayer wraps us in protection.

The angels also tell me that when we breathe deeply after asking for their presence, they come to us through our breathing. We become open when we breathe deeply, and the angels can actually come through every part of our bodies.

After doing this, “see” your guidance group gathered around you, and now start writing a letter to yourself from the angels:

Your letter might start, “Dear Julia, We love you and _____________.” You would just start writing the words that come into your consciousness or heart. The message is in your inner knowing. It will not come through the intellect.

We have found that most people are not clairvoyant or clairaudient, but that many are clairsentient. They will have a sensation of knowing that becomes more and more frequent. It is matter of “knowing what you know.”

If you find yourself thinking that the information is something you have known deeply within yourself for a long time, that is correct. We plan our lives in great detail before we ever arrive on Earth. We choose our parents, our siblings, and the time that we arrive and depart — and then we forget it all. So we’ve created this wonderful plan we can no longer remember.

Those who are in spirit, like the angels, can see the bigger picture and share it with us. The angels are not limited by a third-dimensional body, as we are. When we pray or commune with the angels, they help us to align again with our own plan. So it is natural that the messages should seem familiar.

Julia: How can one discern between “making up” the messages and knowing that they are messages of the Higher Self or the angels?

Trudy: First of all, practice is important. We ask that everyone in the beginning will write the letters for twenty-one days. It takes twenty-one days to establish a habit. That’s the reason for the stipulation.

As you become accustomed to asking for guidance, you will begin to notice a difference in the phrasing of the words and sentences as they come through the angels. There is also the resonance or inner knowing that I spoke of earlier. You will begin to develop an awareness of the difference in the messages.

Julia: Should we ask for the names of the angels who are helping us?

Trudy: You may ask for an angel’s name, and you may feel that the name you receive is familiar to you. There are groups of angels that guide us through our entire lives and stay with us all the time, so it’s not surprising that you would feel a sense of familiarity.

The names are sometimes unfamiliar, too — they may be comprised of syllables and be representative of a group of angels that is helping you.

If you feel that you need a name and that it this would be helpful to you, then you should ask for one. But you don’t always need a name — it is possible to receive the guidance that you need just by feeling the presence of the angel.

Julia: You spoke of your guidance group. How do they differ from the angels? Is this a group of angels?

Trudy: When I speak of an angel, I am speaking about masters, spirit guides, angels, teachers — all those who are on the other side. They have similar emanations, as they are in the angelic realm — a place of “good,” a place without polarity — and they all wish to help us attain our greater good. The guidance system can consist of many of these beings.

People who have passed on often can help those of us who remain on Earth. They are very much with us in spirit, and often work with family members to share their larger perspective of freedom and love.

Julia: I have noted that in working toward higher consciousness, it is not uncommon to find blocks within the self that hold us in an old, negative position — and yet it is painful to encounter them, and easy to become discouraged when this happens. What do you advise?

Trudy: Finding and achieving balance is one of the most difficult and important tasks on this planet. We all construct or assemble our reality in accordance to the happiest and saddest times in our lives. When we move toward happiness, we encounter the parts of us that are enmeshed in the sad times.

Unhappiness simply teaches us what we don’t want. For instance, if you were born into a family that was unloving, then you will want to create love in your life. If your job makes you feel unhappy, then you need to create another job. This is the way in which we identify the direction in which we should flow.

Yet our consciousness often tends to gravitate on unhappiness. People may tell you all day long how beautiful you are — compliment your makeup or hair or clothes — and then one person comes along and tells you that your hair looks terrible, and for the rest of the day you “play” that one negative comment.

We tend to focus on negativity instead of the good. You have to let goodness flow through you and walk in the knowledge that you are an integral part of God’s plan.

These experiences of happiness and unhappiness, of good and bad, are reflections of polarity — the state of movement between opposites on this plane. When we leave negativity behind, it means moving through the blocks that have caused our unhappiness. It is difficult, because we are trying to flow toward being positive and yet we are experiencing the negativity underlying the old situation.

It is essential to realize that these challenges are part of spiritual growth. This difficult learning is vital in opening the doors to our good. People often think that spirituality is magic. It’s not. It involves real work on the physical plane.

The angels say that as one door is closing we are walking toward a door that is opening — but it can be hell waiting in the hall for the new door to open. We simply have to trust that the door is going to open. We have to be patient and let go.

While we wait, we should get busy and do what we love. Create joy in whatever way we can.

Also, the angels say that if we really want change, we should clean our house. And I do mean this literally. Physically clean your house!

Julia: Do you have any tips on patience and waiting while living through challenges? These are difficult soul qualities to develop.

Trudy: Sometimes, we need help with our challenges. We have to ask, “How can I let go of this challenge? How can I make my mind stop thinking about this?” The answer is to ask the angels for help, while knowing that we are being supported through the challenge.

You go through the four steps that I outlined, and ask, “What do I really want in a new relationship? What I do really want in a new job?” You ask for help, and you write down everything you can think of that you want in the relationship or job.

After you have called the angels in, you become patient. When the time is right, the plan will unfold precisely.

It’s like sending a letter. You write the letter, putting all of your passion and hopes in the letter, and you put it in an envelope and mail it. But after you mail it, you don’t stand there and wait for the postman. You don’t demand that the postman guarantee that the letter be delivered, or worry about whether the letter reaches its destination. You simply trust that it will.

It works in the same way with the angels. You have to trust that the angels will take care of your challenges.

Another important point is to know that you will be given work in the physical world each day. We have to do our work, because we live in the physical world, and we can only work one day at a time.

It’s important to stay out of the future. When we look at the future, our fear starts to build. Instead, we take one step at a time, let go, and say thank you.

So the secret to a spiritual life is staying present, doing the physical work, and remaining patient while having faith that the angels are helping.

Julia: Much of the advice you have received from angels seems practical, involving day to day matters. Is this true?

Trudy: Yes, it is. We can only live one day at a time. That is absolutely the most any of us can handle. So you may receive information about bills or cleaning your house or exercising. The angels are highly practical and may give you information about your house or children.

The angels have to teach us how to live in each day more fully and wholly. We have to learn how to live correctly in the physical body and the physical world. Living in this way teaches us balance, and it brings clarity, spirituality, and joy into our lives.

Whatever we are living from day to day is our lifework. This is the way in which we develop a spiritual life. It is the way that life unfolds.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Trudy: In the beginning, the angels told me that the most important thing was love. I thought, “Oh, this is easy. I love my husband. I love my children. I love my friends. I can do this.”

But then the angels told me that self-love is the type of love they meant — developing a capacity for loving yourself more fully. Through learning to love ourselves, we learn to love each other more. Through love of self, we change our physical habits, such as food or exercise. We establish boundaries. We learn to listen to our greater truth and our inner guidance.

This is the real lesson we have come to learn. I say to myself each day, “Thy will be done.” I try to feel God’s flow for me in each day. And I take it one day at a time and remind myself that the best is yet to come.

Navigating in the New World

 

As the planet alters, our consciousness is changing. Our vibrations and Earth’s planetary vibrations are rising and merging, according to the studies of Gregg Braden. When we move into self-awareness, the universal connection deepens.

When consciousness quickens, we become more intuitive and sensitive. We can encounter quantum change when aspects of life alter quickly. It’s possible to feel the wave of love and connection—and share it with others. (At this point, the universe responds to our vibrations, and it’s possible to create a quick shift.)

Here are a few tips:

  • We encounter waves of energy when moving through transformation. The higher waves are sometimes called 5-D, and ordinary reality is referred to as 3-D. After a higher realization, we move between lower and higher waves until we learn to align with the higher (better) frequency. It can take time to master a wave of energy, and it requires patience and practice.
  • Meditation helps tremendously because we have brief periods of separation from lower world energies. A meditation practice helps with clearing energies from others and provides distance from repetitive thoughts.
  • As we awaken, our thoughts and emotions have a more profound effect on others. Finding a neutral point of communication (while holding a visualization) can help with relationships. Speak from the heart—not the mind—whenever possible.
  • Boundaries remain an issue in this time of change. Self-discovery leads to realizations about our inner wants and desires, making it necessary to express new desires and/or rearrange aspects of relationships in our life. (It’s helpful to express new “wants” in a positive sense—and over a period of time.)
  • Loving and nurturing the self is part of the lesson. It’s impossible to center and balance with the new waves unless we rest, seek simple pleasures, and take time to relax in the sunlight and watch the moon rise. (Actually, rest and relaxation can amplify spiritual and psychic abilities.)
  • Ultimately, everything is energy. Food, phone conversations, long walks, and exchanges with pets—they are all composed of energy. If we notice when we lose or gain energy, we can understand a great deal more about the universe and the self.
  • Confidence will come and go with the waves of inner growth. We may feel fabulous about our path one week and encounter doubt at another time. These patterns are part of the clearing process. Each time we move through them, we grow.
