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.)

Finding Stillness

 

Meditation brings a point of connection with the universe—the divine stillness. Everything ceases its motion in the exchange between our human self and soul. Beauty pours into our awareness. Physical sensations calm, and emotions become joyful as thought ceases. The illusion ends temporarily along with the sensation of cascading from one task to another. Light fills our countenance, altering and smoothing our vibrations and moods.

The stillness refers to an illuminated state, the search for light and a response from the universe. With practice, the energetic exchange can come on a daily basis—giving insight and inspiration to our daily lives. In the stillness, the heart speaks with soft voice. It provides gentle guidance, which often feels like positive preferences or inclinations to move through life more softly (a slower pace.) From this point, emotions and thoughts become quiet. Intuition grows like the soft light of dawn, illuminating the passage of our spiritual quest.

Often, we can feel the answers within us—even if we lack the knowledge of “how” to find the way. By meditating on the feeling of the calm (and unknown) answer, we find our way. We learn to substitute calm for agitation and how to push away negative thoughts and emotions until we find our true understanding about them. The stillness usually gives a feeling before it brings an answer. By meditating on the feeling, we essentially ask for more knowledge about the answers.

The same is true with gifts. We find our gifts by taking one step at a time toward the illumination of the true self and following our passion instead of pushing it away. There is also a quality of trust. It’s important to trust the information received in meditation and to believe in our power to bring it to fruition.

Life involves a dance between the True Self and the Not Self (the part of us that lives life in a way that we don’t like.) Meditation on the still point leads us into discovering our true feelings and preferences so we can take proper action. It also reveals the peaceful, joyful feelings of the true self, which are always present if we stay with our work—even when it takes longer than we would like.

Tips:

1)      It’s helpful to recall the state of connection before meditating.

2)      When emotions are wild or discordant, acknowledge it. Imagine pink or light blue light pouring into your emotions and the perception of your problem. Focus on how you feel when life goes well.

3)      Trust your ability to tap into the stillness and find answers.

4)      Observe when the mind chatters or focuses on problems. Problems often change when we admit our real feelings and involvement.

5)      Believe in your power to commit to change.

6)      Imagine your life moving in a peaceful flow.

7)      It’s a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Energy vacillates. You will experience highs and lows. It’s part of the human condition. Send love to lows and give gratitude for breakthroughs.

Moving Into Stillness

Today, I worked with a student and moved very deeply into the river of stillness with her. Immediately, it began to rain—which I had visualized earlier in the day. (We are 13 inches below normal rainfall.)

When we are in “stillness”, we move into the void where the universe and the inner self meet. In this place, many things, which are unexpected and wonderful, happen without any effort. There is only the experience of profound placement of consciousness with the inner self.

1)      Meditation can lead to stillness if we seek the inner self. The outer world ceases to move, and the inner self speaks. We know when we’ve reached this place because these is an union; the worlds meet. (Try the free meditation series  at https://onetrueself.leadpages.co/meditation-challenge/ for beginning a practice and/or guided meditations.)

2)      In this stillness, there is always a “feeling”, which is not associated with other aspects of life. In metaphysics, it is called the “plumb” line, and we can measure aspects of life with this feeling. (Sometimes, this is referred to as the hara line or the heart, depending on the line of study.) We can also expand this feeling into the future or “feel” into activities to see how they fit.

3)      Visualization and projection of feelings is more accurate and defined when we project from the space of the inner self. Our consciousness is free from our outer identity; it flows. (Possibility opens, and the universe responds.)

4)        In this place of stillness, emotions and thoughts cease. Our frequency is higher. Sending energy, seeing positive outcomes, and detaching from judgement are gifts from this point of perception. Opposites disappear, and detachment appears.  From this place of balance, we can understand more about the energetic motion of our lives.

5)      Freedom comes from connection as well as the expansion of perception. Our overall frequency and vibrations naturally expand, leading to insights about the unseen world. Insights and intuition eventually lead to greater perception of the inner self—which brings a river of peace and unconditional love.
