7 Trends and Changes in Energy

1)   The universe is becoming vibrational. In the past, we said energy is everything, but the current trend is based on frequency. Frequency is sum of the vibrational quality of our energy field, and it affects everything. It’s a determining factor in outcome. (When we move into a higher vibration, the universe responds by lifting the situation into a higher frequency.)

2)   The Age of Aquarius asks for higher, balanced energy with an emphasis on the inner self. We can only give when our glass is half-full, and we must reserve energy to stay vital and fulfilled. In the Piscean Age, it was important to make sacrifices for the church and causes. If we gave away too much of our energy, the universe refilled it. At this point, it can days to revitalize our bodies and energy fields if we give away too much energy.

3) The best way to find answers is to listen to the heart
and follow the inner self. During the Piscean Age, we allowed the priests, leaders, and politics to determine our path. Now, we’re learning to listen to ourselves and find our inborn knowledge for enlightenment.

4)  Evolution is becoming increasingly important. It’s not about what happened to us—and old roles of victim and hero. It’s about finding the power within to energetically overcome and balance old karma. The lesson is about evolving, growing, and applying the experience to move more deeply into the inner self.

5) East meets West. The wisdom and knowledge of the Eastern and Western cultures is intermingling as we find balance within ourselves. The stillness and meditation practices of the Eastern philosophies is beautiful, but we also need the passionate action (and love) of the West.

6. We are beginning to define “good” as alignment with the inner self. There is a beautiful harmony that occurs in this connection. As more people awaken, the vibration will become more recognizable.

7. Self-care is becoming increasingly important as we continue to move through strange waves of energy, challenging astrological influences, and personal evolution. We simply have to rest and take care of ourselves to move through the energies of this time. Interestingly, a few hours of rest and a round or two of meditation can bring us back into the uplifting frequencies of higher collective consciousness.

More on Manifesting

You are a creator, and you came here to create. It’s how you learn to master the flow of your energy and transform lower emotions and thoughts into a higher form. It’s how you create possibility, beauty, and wonderful solutions out of darkness and chaos.

It’s how you create harmony in a world, which is out of alignment. It’s the way you transform a negative situation into a positive one. It’s how you awaken the creativity of the heart. The process brings awakening and connection with the inner self.

  1. The first step lies in possibility—and believing that your experience of the world can become better. It requires a new dimension of thought as to what is possible—and opening to what is amazing. Your consciousness must move from limitation to expansion.
  2. Change can be as simple as more harmony in life and moving above lower vibrations, which cause stress or anxiety. It can be as complex as a whole new life, which opens gifts and fulfills the heart.
  3. Manifestation begins with lack—an unfulfilled desire, an inner longing, or a need to experience the opposite of a problem. By visualizing and “feeling” the desired state, your consciousness learns to move in a different, higher direction. This practice leads to perception of possibilities, a subtle change in how you see the world and (ultimately) an understanding of how to change your energy to experience more “goodness” in life.
  4. It’s best to begin with a few minutes of meditation and find the light. Follow the practice with an image and feeling of your desire as already fulfilled. Live in the image as often as you like. Imagine it has already occurred, and you live in a new level of happiness and harmony.
  5. When your practice becomes strong, you will receive insights and intuitions. You will become more aware of your inner self—as well as the part of the self who has been limited by the lack of change.
  6. Your thoughts and feelings will change. There will be moments of illumination when change seems likely; there will be moments when it feels that life will never change. In the dark moments, it’s necessary to hold the visuals and return to the feelings. It’s part of the process of overcoming doubt and fear. It also means you’re closer to your desire.
  7. You will become aware of your inner self as you work in the direction of a desire. incredible moments of connection, realization of beauty, and amazing wonder will come as you progress with your work. You will begin to perceive the energy that lies beneath the material world, and the energetic forces will work with you. (There’s a tendency to believe the world is against you when confronting subconscious patterns. It’s the opposite with manifestation.)
  8. With every desire, there is an obstacle or block. You learn how to move through the obstacle with creative thoughts, calming your emotions, and visualization to find the root cause of the problem. This leads to right action, which is usually prompted through meditation and by suggestions received through intuition.
  9. This process is also called awakening. It’s a subtle realization of knowing you can use your energy (thoughts, emotions, actions) to create a shift in life. After repeating the process several times, you can see good things for others, and they will occur. Life will continue to create challenges, but you’ll have more, new tools every time. More importantly, you’ll have the key to your inner self, know how to listen to the universe, and use the experience to move into deeper awakening. (Between the challenges, you’ll encounter adventures and joyful moments!)

Full Moon Forecast



The Full Moon appears on Thurs, Jan 12 with Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Cancer. Moon in Cancer rules the fourth house or the home; it represents the Mother, the sea, and aspects of water (emotion.) Additionally, there is an emphasis on the number, 23, with Sun, Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn are placed at 23 degrees. 23 is a mystical number, sometimes used in occult methodology—or it can symbolize help from ascended masters and success with desires of the heart.

All of the planets are direct until early February, creating ease for forward motion. The entire chart is a combination of insightful and beneficial aspects—and difficult ones such as a Grand Square and/or the continuation of the Uranus/Pluto square, which are only 3 degrees apart. On the positive, the Full Moon represents light, heightened energy, and fruition of positive events. (It’s easier to focus strongly on positive outcomes when the moon is full.)

The overall chart is heavily weighted with water with Moon in Cancer and Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron placed in Pisces. Only Jupiter (good fortune) is placed in air, making it necessary to find our way through our spiritual alignment while clearing emotions and leaning into love.

Sun and Moon square Jupiter (good fortune), creating tension between the desire for success and emotions ruling the home and close relationships. They also square Uranus, enlarging the possibility of sudden or radical change—or misreading intuitive leads. Overall, it’s important to reflect on the inner self before taking action. (Is the action in the best and highest good for all concerned?)

Fortunately, Mercury (thought, communication) is conjunct (close to) Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius, and this opens our thoughts to a wider, philosophical horizon. Mercury in Sagittarius also trines (harmonious) Uranus, which can lend inspired and/or brilliant thought with new applications, ideas, and methods of moving through life. (It softens the Sun/Moon squares with Uranus.)

Sun (life) in Capricorn sextiles Mars (male, assertion); Moon (emotions, inner life) trines Mars in Pisces. (Mars in a water sign can bring up resentments, but it can also increase the possibility of moving into the “sea” of love.) Mars squares Saturn (time, karma), and it’s important to use the will to move forward. Mars also conjuncts Neptune, emphasizing the possibility of confusing spiritual truth with illusion. Mars also conjuncts Chiron (wounded healer).

Venus (beauty, feminine energy)  conjuncts (close to) Mars (male energy) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it can create a very beautiful view of life. It accentuates our understanding and perception of the beauty in life.  It’s helpful with artistic creations—and inner vision in external world.

Mars (assertion, male energy) in Pisces squares Saturn (limitation, karma, time) in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces denotes emotional energies of the past age—and past lives—that require clearing before moving into a more philosophical structure. Mars also conjuncts (close to) Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. The conjunction with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) can lift our feelings into a spiritual state of being and/or bring confusion about the cause of inner feelings. If we apply the Mars/Chiron energy correctly, it can lead to more peaceful emotions and inner healing.

Jupiter (good fortune) opposes Uranus (quantum field, new age) and squares Pluto (underworld, will). Our ideas and beliefs about good fortune may suddenly change, expand, or take a new direction with the Jupiter/Uranus opposition. We may also have to use our will and inner power to revitalize and alter our lives (Jupiter square Pluto). Also, Saturn (time, limitation) trines Uranus, making it possible to find new structures for a better life in the early stages of the New Age.

Cardinal Grand Square

The cardinal Grand Cross illustrates pressure between Sun/Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. All of these planets square one another at 90 degree intervals, exerting stress in several different direction. For example, Moon in Cancer (home life, the feminine) is impacted by Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus (sudden change.) The Uranus/Pluto square, which impacts a great deal on its own, is exacerbated by the Grand Square.

Beneficial Aspects

Venus (beauty, worldly possessions) conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion.) This aspect opens us to the esoteric and physical beauty of the world.

Mercury Trines Uranus. It’s a harmonious aspect, which can lead to ingenious thinking, a break through approach, and instantaneous solutions. Uranus rules awakening and the quantum field. Mercury rules thought.

Saturn trines Uranus. Saturn is time and limitation. Uranus is spiritual awakening. By transcending habits of the past and using our strength/discipline in life, we can create a new structure, based more closely on the tenets of the New Age and the inner self.

Sun and Pluto are conjunct (close together.) Sun is life; Pluto is hidden truths and regeneration–and rules the will. It’s possible to use our will to regenerate and renew aspects of life.


  • The chart is a bit like the world at this current point in time. The chart is filled with opportunities, moments of possible genius, and a good bit of tension. Numerous aspects (planetary alignments) move energy in different directions
  • Uranus plays a strong role in this chart, prompting sudden changes and realizations. It also continues to reveal illusion with emphasis on the Uranus/Pluto square.
  • There are many good and positive aspects in the chart, which soften the tension of the Grand Square. It’s helpful to centered and focused on opportunities.
  • The Sun conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, giving the power of tremendous will and the opportunity for rejuvenation.
  • With a Full Moon and all planets direct, take action on plans. The energies will support you.

Sabian Symbols (based on Lynda Hill, The Sabian Oracle)

Sun is on 23 Capricorn, “A Soldier Receiving Two Awards for Bravery in Combat.” The symbol suggests an individual moving through some type of struggle and/or battle—and receiving recognition for their efforts. It speaks of compensation and rewards for inner/outer efforts.

Moon is on 23 Cancer, “The Meeting of a Study Group or Literary Society.” The imagery represents a gathering to discuss underlying meanings of concepts, words, and presentations of thoughts. The challenge lies in arriving at the correct interpretation.

Mercury is placed on 30 Sagittarius, “The Pope Blessing the Faithful.” The symbol speaks of a person or being with spiritual awareness and love who bestows blessings on others. It emphasizes the need for spirituality in life as well as the enlightening of the collective.

Venus sits on 10 Pisces, “An Aviator in the Clouds.” It’s a perfect symbol for Venus conjunct Neptune (mysticism, illusion.) The Aviator can lift us high above life into the clouds, but a flight through the clouds can also raise our consciousness, leading to new realizations.

Mars is on 19 Pisces, “A Master Instructing his Disciple.” This symbol is very appropriate with Mars’ placement. The Master could symbolize the inner self, and the Discipline, our awareness. We can use our energy to respond and follow our inner insights or allow our energy to lead us into lower emotion and/or distraction.

Jupiter is on 23 Libra, “Chanticleer’s Voice Heralds the Rising Sun with Enthusiastic Tones.” With Jupiter symbolizing good fortune, the symbol could refer to the dawning of a New Age—and the inherent possibility, which lies within that paradigm.

Trends of 2017



While it’s possible to “pick” up on great deal in the outer and invisible world, predictions and explanations tend to become misleading because they are amplified/diminished by our beliefs. Instead of  moving into the possibilities and probabilities of the year, it’s simpler to look at energetic trends.

The presentation of trends allows the opportunity to best direct our energy for personal growth. (Feel free to comment and share thoughts on this post.)

  1. Patience. Many have felt the scope of expansion offered by awakening. We know the world can change and move in a positive direction. We understand the probability of emergent new forms of energy, useful in healing, cleaning the environment, and free energy for cars, electricity, etc. We are working with patience while waiting for world change. We visualize, learn to regroup and alter the pattern of our words—and create room for the decision to move into awakening or stay in the same place.
  2. Transition. Part of the big transition involves letting go of who we think are while evolving into our “true” identity. This includes memories, lineage, personal preferences, and how we “think” we operate in life. It involves surrendering our “outer” identity as we become more of the inner self. It can be as simple as giving up toxic (lower) energy people to completely rebuilding our lives. (We’ll see change in the structure of the outer world as well.)
  3. A linear division. The line of division between light/dark and awake/sleeping is becoming more apparent. At this point, the delineation is becoming more apparent as the veil of illusion continues to thin. (Many revelations will be presented on a global and personal level. Expect people to reveal themselves.) For those who are awake, powers of discernment will increase.
  4. Increased light and personal power. As the veil thins, we’ll become more aware of how our personal and global connections affect the world. Our intentions, thoughts, and emotions will become more powerful. (Initially, it will be a two-edged sword because we will discover both negative and positive directives from the self and the world at large.)
  5. Increased amplification and acceleration. As we awaken, increased intuition will amplify our feelings and thoughts, Time will seem to move more quickly unless we actively slow it down through interaction with nature and meditation. The “waves” of energy surrounding the earth move much quickly, and they can affect our consciousness. (The term “waves” extends to mass consciousness, the people in our lives, and higher collective consciousness. Grounding and balance help a great deal with this.)
  6. More understanding of love. In the past, love meant intense passion, religious fervor, and a directive to move into love and light regardless of the circumstances. This view fostered intense (not always positive) relationships, a martyred vision of religion, and imbalance. “Real” universal love holds a much higher vibration. It illustrates the truth with compassion. It demands boundaries, truth, balance, and expansion. Universal love offers the opportunity to vibrate above lower energies—and to stay in the heart space.
  7. Perception of Energy. Big changes will occur in the perception of energy for those who are awake. Obviously, everything is energy, but learning how to apply, use, and align with energy correctly is an entirely different task. It’s super important to let go of people, things, and events that lower our energy and focus on the development of energy and positivity. (In many ways, it’s like a child outgrowing their clothes. Our lives may simply not fit in the same way.)
  8. New energies for those who are open. The new energies will likely provide tools for healing, greater understanding and clearing of past lives (and their influence), the ability to use intention as a greater directive for move thought life, and more profound understanding of the self—and cosmic law.
  9. Increased ability to manifest. Manifestation will become easier as the dark/light forces separate, and we move out of the old earth paradigm. For those in the light, it will involve manifesting aspects of the soul, hidden talents, and aspects of life, which are hidden in the heart.
  10. Increased connection. We will become more connected through electronics, spiritual energy, and likes/dislikes. It actually offers the opportunity to discover our personal alignment and how it affects our energy. On a higher level, the spiritual community may learn a great deal about group manifestation. (Much of the world appears as it does because of our thoughts. Awakened individuals will become aware of the importance of their thoughts and dreams.)

Go Quantum Now!



Less than a century ago, people lived without electricity. Twenty years ago, the internet came into form. The New Age brought lasers, healing with sound/light, and quantum physics.

The New Age is also bringing a new understanding of frequency. Max Planck said, We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.”  (Physical reality consists of particles vibrating at a low rate. The low rate of frequency makes objects appear real and solid.)

If we vibrate in harmony with an ideal, an image connected to the soul, or higher truth, the universe responds. Higher frequencies such as light alter reality. The frequency makes “reality”—physical law—respond in an entirely, different way. It’s how small miracles take place.

  1. From a higher level, we can say our soul or inner self is the source of light. When we connect to the inner self, we receive more light. Meditation is connection to source. By connecting to the inner self, we contact a greater source of light within the self—as well as the power of the universe.
  2. When we hold a visualization, which is connected to the inner self, along with positive emotion, the universe amplifies the “visual.” This alignment brings in higher vibrations, which create a stronger, more positive frequency. If we persist with the frequency, reality changes.
  3. The result of the visual aligns with dominant emotions and thoughts—and the substance of the visual. (It can take practice and experimentation.) It’s normal to revise the visual several times as we encounter aspects of it in reality. We often find the visual by discarding old thoughts and beliefs while experimenting with different ways of seeing and feeling life. (it’s how we learn what we truly want—and what we don’t.)
  4. When we alter the energy field with higher, positive perceptions, we begin to live in alignment with the inner self and the universe, which frees us from limiting aspects of physical reality.
  5. With practice, we can create these shifts for others by use of the will. After creating a shift several times, we know the right position of the mind, emotions, spirit, and body. We repeat the technique by using the will to hold the energy in right space.

NOTE: Our limiting beliefs about time and space—as well as the goodness of the world—often limit the outcome of a visualization technique. With time, practice, and right technique, we move into a brighter space, which allows bigger and better manifestations in life.

Full Moon Forecast: Clarity and Confusion



It’s a challenging and beautiful Full Moon chart. (The full moon appeared on June 2, but we will feel the energy for next week or so.) With Sun, Mars, and Mercury in Gemini and the moon in Sagittarius, there are opposing forces with energy moving in many directions.  Gemini is the sign of the twins; it brings qualities of quick mentality, rapid thought, talkativeness, and short journeys. It also involves communications and relationships with siblings. Both Sagittarius and Gemini involve thought.

The Sagittarius Moon focuses on the importance of emotions and thoughts as they relate to the soul’s journey. Gemini loves pure thought–the quick understanding and compilation of knowledge. The larger image of the full moon mixes together philosophical thought, quests, journeys, rapid thought, and Gemini as represented by the twins (dark/light, happy/sad, and lower/higher mind.)

Diversions come by the handful with many planets placed in Gemini. As with all tests, we have to choose the placement of the mind, body, and spirit. Mercury retrograde indicates a need for review. (It’s important to ask how our activities relate to the soul.) Three planets, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn, are retrograde, which slows the appearance of progress.

Venus sits in Cancer, a feminine, nurturing sign. Venus represents pleasure, beauty, and feminine energy. When listening to her voice, it’s easier to move at a graceful speed, take a walk, or watch a lovely summer sunset. Venus also trines Chiron, the wounded healer. In this position, it’s easy to see how listening to the soul brings silence from the lower mind; insights come more often when we are quiet and tranquil.

Squares with Neptune cause tension, and they can also push issues into resolution. Neptune can symbolize illusion, illumination, or spirituality. In this case, the emphasis lies in pushing through illusion and finding truth. The inner planets affect our personal life, and they are involved in the squares. We’ll feel tension with the outer self (Sun), emotions and inner self (Moon), Mercury (mind, communication), and Mars (energy, masculine, will.)

For those who are intuitive, aspects with Neptune can enhance psychic ability. We may feel the emotional energy of others more deeply and/or unexpectedly. In the big picture, it’s a lesson about vibrating above group emotion and understanding our propensity to click into it.

Hidden blessings are found in the full moon chart. The Moon trines Venus, meaning our emotions can bring love and realization of beauty. Venus trines Saturn, which brings structure into all forms of creativity and beauty.  Jupiter remains trine Uranus, giving the gift of inspiration with endeavors related to the soul and new frontiers.

If we continue to search for the soul, hold our vision, and walk in love and beauty, the landscape will change. We’re recalibrating and changing with the new energies. The alterations in energy teach about staying centered and connected with the inner self.



  1. Your feelings and thoughts will alter in response to the placement of your consciousness. For those on a higher level, the energy is tricky. It changes in response to other people, stimuli, and activities. Keep this in mind and focus on positive thoughts.
  2. Part of the challenge with many planets in Gemini is discernment. The internet offers videos, interviews, quotes, photographs, and emails. Additionally, we have books, magazines, and movies. No one can take in the quantity of material. What is important on the path of the soul? Discern and minimize.
  3. The lower and higher self are evident in ourselves and others. Watch for judgement, hidden beliefs, and work to remain compassionate.
  4. Ask to move through the issues in life. Notice personal involvement and let go of illusion. Beyond the illusion, there is wholeness—and answers.
  5. Part of the work is about finding the inner rhythm when life feels loud or out of synch. The inner rhythm is not a frantic response to monkey mind; it likes to go slowly and find its own way. Finding stillness is an important part of soul work.
  6. Review projects, impulses, and tasks. We can think our quest comes from a desire for success or completion when it truly comes from the lower mind.
  7. Focus on grounding. Only one planet, Pluto, is placed in earth. It’s easy to lose your balance without the element of earth. Come back to center.

Sabian Symbols:

Sun is on Gemini 12, “A Slave Girl Demands Her Rights.” This point can refer to boundaries, self-respect, and the desire to create a better life. It could also refer to the current political situation, which contrasts billionaires, a large middle class, and a lower class.  Our rights are sometimes obscured by corporations unless we ask for them and act on our principles. It also asks for contemplation of how we can create freedom through our personal quest. (Changing attitudes, beliefs, and focus is often helpful.)

Moon sits on Sagittarius 12, “A Flag Turns into an Eagle; the Eagle into a Chanticleer Saluting the Dawn.”  The Eagle can refer to the United States; it symbolizes spiritual connection and idealism in Native American mythology. The symbol may refer to our power and ability to change life through spiritual vision. It is “announced” through the rooster (chanticleer) on the dawn of a new day. It is an encouraging symbol, a reminder of the strength of our invisible power.

Mercury is placed on Gemini 8, “Aroused Strikers Surround a Factory.” Again, the placement indicates dissatisfaction with the overall outer situation. Strikes and protests in the physical are not always practical in creating change. Sometimes, we need a vision and solution before going forward. In general, the symbol points to a feeling of agitation.

Venus is symbolized by Cancer 28, “An Indian Girl Introduces Her College Boyfriend to Her Assembled Tribe.” Only love transcends issues and differences in beliefs, races, traditions, and life. Love expands life; it stretches our consciousness. It teaches the strength of revising our beliefs. As hinted earlier, love is the solution to many of the complexities presented in this chart.

Mars is on Gemini 16, “A Woman Activist on a Platform in an Emotional Speech, Dramatizing Her Cause.” This is an interesting degree when we consider the prominent role played by drama in our society. Our stories tend to involve the negative in life, and we can become quite dramatic about them. (Maybe, it’s time for this to end.) It’s more powerful to lift our consciousness, hold an intention for a better world, and cultivate love.

Discovering the Inner Self

Connection with the inner self involves daily effort. When we are truly connected, we feel inspired and energized. Conversely, our efforts during difficult times can lead us more deeply into the light of the soul. Making an effort is important—even when we feel it isn’t working. It always works, but it can take time before we notice the shift.

The inner self is the one possession, which no one can take away. It brings strength, direction, and unconditional love as well as insights into the universe. Everything in life alters in its “light.”

Here are a few tips for inner discovery:

1) Begin with a light hearted feeling. Think about what makes you feel happy and energized. Recall activities, people, and scenery. The feeling comes from connection, but it also comes from people, places, and nature—and the energy they exude. By determining common factors in the energy, you discover more about the inner self.

2) Change your attitude. Decide to find the part of you, which is attuned to happiness, lightness, and higher consciousness. Everyone works to find happiness; they work with more intent to maintain a positive intent. Address and find the positive in life. (Observe the negative, and develop an awareness to change these aspects of life. Don’t dwell on it. Notice and let it go.)

3) Ask to go deeper and experience more when you meditate. The intent behind meditation can lead to realization of universal truth. Intent can also involve release from emotion, compassion, insight into life issues, and freedom from burdens in life. Interestingly, the desire for realization of the true nature is very effective—and often gifts us with both release and direction.

4) Focus on the heart by feeling love. Love is expressed in many forms, but it’s helpful to meditate on the unconditional love provided by the universe as well as pure forms of personal love such as love for a child, pet, or flower. (Notice how you feel when you experience love. By focusing on it, you open to receiving more of the desirable.)

5) Ask good questions. How would it feel if you lived life from a deepened spiritual state? How would life change? What you lived with alignment with the energy composing your life? What if your heart stayed open to goodness and love? Can you imagine the substance of your desire?

6) Awakening bestows special gifts. Notice the goodness your presence brings to others. By noticing subtle changes in others, you can develop your gifts. (It’s also helpful to notice the people who bring light into your life—and the special feelings wrought by their gifts. Awareness helps in developing gifts.)

7) Pay attention to moments of happiness, lightness, or joy. We tend to give more energy and attention to the negative in life. Move beyond this tendency by giving more attention to the good. Notice the physical body, the placement of the mind and emotions, and the beauty. Many sublime moments are rooted in simple experiences. (Expand the beauty, sensations, and interaction. When the soul is involved, life becomes lovelier in a thousand ways.)

Evolution on Planet Earth

It’s another week of exciting changes on the Evolving Earth as the energies escalate our growth. This specific time on earth brings a great deal of change. Many of the forces – accepted in the past as physical law – are eclipsed by quantum physics (or miracles.) If you really think about it, miracles happen pretty often. Mothers lift cars, or people heal instantly. The lost earring reappears in the same place you left it although it’s been missing for weeks. Realistically, nothing is ever as it appears to mortal eyes. The molecules in the chair are spinning – everything’s moving and changing all the time.

It’s a revolution of consciousness, an awakening of people throughout the world. Everyone’s learning about the subtle energy that underlies the movement of shape and form. The physical world, at the higher vibrations, responds to the light and energy of the individual. It’s a slow process at the moment, but the energy of the shift heightens every week or so. As our energy heightens, the physical world will respond more to our vibrations of love and light. Events, which were called miracles or quantum change in the past, will likely be explained by science as the reaction of physical matter in the presence of strong light.

When the human form holds enough light, physical matter responds. Higher states of light and love are enlightenment. The time factor of the shift depends on how quickly higher group consciousness moves into love and maintains a more positive frequency. The light level of the planet increases regularly so it’s good to know we’re moving forward.

In the meanwhile, here are some indications of awakening:

1)      You realize everything changes when you feel more positive. When you feel happy and positive, the world looks better. People become kinder and more accommodating. It’s easier to do everything. You don’t think the bad days happen for an unknown reason. You know it has something to do with you. (Most light workers understand co-creation and their role in it. It’s different when you observe how your feelings affect the change in your environment. Self-observation is an important part of awakening.)

2)      You perceive the motion of cyclical patterns in your life. The same emotions and feelings happen periodically. It may happen because of work, family or career, but they continue to appear in different forms. (Everyone is clearing their core patterns or karmic issues. When you raise your vibrations, the patterns become and feel more obvious.) On a deeper level, you see how the events in your life alter with the focus and flow of your consciousness.

3)      You have moments of deep alignment with the Universe. You feel the flow and harmony of connection with the Divine.  There’s a profound feeling of knowing everything in your world will work out wonderfully and easily. The sensation may fade, but it returns with meditation or relaxation.

4)      You experience exhaustion and increased energy on a cyclical basis. Your sleep patterns change often. The intense aspects formed by the planets, coupled with the influx of light, can give too much energy or too little. Resting, exercising, drinking water, and accepting the shift of adjusting to a fluctuating light level helps — as does visualizing sleep or vitality.

5)      There’s a deepened connection with life and others. You feel different when someone walks into the room. There are sensations from interactions with anyone, and they differ from your own feelings. (You become more aware of the balance of giving/receiving needed in relationships. Imbalances are exhausting!)  A heightened sense of beauty in nature is also part of awakening. You may also find more joy in simple activities.

6) You’re figuring it out. What you feel, think, or see (with your inner mind) is as important as what you do — maybe even more important. If you send out light and good thoughts with your work or words, the outcome improves. When you send love (pink light) to your life, it improves.

6)      You realize the value of spiritual practices. Meditation, chanting, and staying true to inner self become key parts of your life. You understand how you lose your connection and insight when you step away from a devoted practice. After all, the devotion is about the development of you – the real you or the One True Self.

7)      It occurs to you that there is only one important thing to do – despite your desires. (Desires are important because they teach about what your soul wants and about karmic blocks.) You want to become the image that the Universe holds for you – complete, infinite, and divine.






Julia Griffin, intuitive healer and owner of One True Self, began her work fifteen years ago under the tutelage of real wolves. The wolves taught her that true energetic motion is based on the soul and patterns of nature. Following their direction, Julia sees and reads energy, including animals, plants and people. She works with people in session to find their resonance with the soul, clearing patterns and alignment with their inner path.
