I’ve been noticing the progress we have been making as a collective. It is powerful. Can you feel it? I’ve been feeling a powerful welling up of energy in my heart, and it feels as if it just might burst open. In fact it periodically does! Kaboom! Yet, I continue to periodically “tend” to the moments where I perceive feelings of being stuck and stressed, off balance.
Here are some helpful techniques for shifting your consciousness away from the old outdated “reality” (what quantum theorist increasingly show is illusory and simply subjective perspective) into in the NOW of the New Year!
In this shifting time of dynamic back and forths in the the power structure of this illusion, it can be a little funky living a life in the typical day to day, given the particular part of the illusion you are “stationed” in. As you may know, in my everyday (ok, lets just call it what it is – illusory reality) I am a mom, wife, hypnotherapist, sister, friend and the list goes on.
My point is not to blast holes in the reality that I have intentionally created. I happen to be quite fond of the hologram that I am participating in. However, my goal is to throw open the cupboard doors on a way of looking at this personal/collective reality to assist with the increase in demand for integration and forward movement in a functional, easy way. A way that serves my/your/our highest purpose.
Looking back on the past year and beyond, you may notice that you and everyone around you has gone through a lot of change. As we move into this new year and more highly vibrating energy of 2015, how do we as awakening beings continue to grow and further refine our mastery in the light arts while continuing our dance in the shifting illusion?
The sensation of resistance, or struggle is a perception designated by our conscious minds over the course of our life experience. The raw data that initiated this designation was neither good nor bad when it happened, yet through modeling of behavior from others and our conscious mind, we assigned a way of perceiving this and related experiences. When the sensation of resistance occurs, the conscious mind is chiming a signal. It’s saying “Hello! Change is being requested!” The conscious tends to feel more “at home” with patterned experiences and familiarity. Change takes focus, effort, intention. This shows up in our body language and breathing patterns as stress, tension and aggravation, which can lead to anger, resentment and fear.
In terms of shifting and disentangling, this signal really only means one thing. That attention is needed. It’s like a light going on in your car informing you that your engine needs maintenance. So what does attention to this signal look like? It looks like integration. Take a moment and imagine how the term integration shows up for you. For me, integration looks like the merging of two gently moving streams into one. Integrating aspects of self can seem counter-intuitive from the perspective of the 3rd density story/illusion. Especially when we have developed powerful internal mechanisms to block and make a U-turn away from these moments. When we have these moments of resistance, it is at this precise time that a tremendous opportunity for healing and growth awaits us.
Pause instead of reacting.
Often, our focus on the event that we are experiencing amplifies the intensity with which we are feeling it. Our subconscious mind has also been patterned to respond to stimulus with a reaction. By pausing, and taking our foot off the go pedal, we can create and initiate a disruption from the patterned response, and place the moment in a type of suspended animation and take a step back. I liken this to the moments in the movie The Matrix where everything pauses and you get a 360 degree view of the scene. Do that. By taking a step back you are literally changing your participation in the illusion from a passive to an active participant. Re-programming it to allow for new possibilities.
Take a deep breath.
Breathing in at this moment allows for the pause and new perspective to activate. By breathing, allowing the new, more expanded imagery to fill in, you further solidify the expansion.
Connect with Intention.
Intentionality draws our thoughts from an unconscious, or subconscious state into the light of our consciousness. The energy of our intention sets the tone for what we desire. Once initiated, this carves out a new if/then pathway in the neurology of the brain as well as the structure of the illusion, immediately impacting and altering how the future unfolds.
Gifting the “Allow”
Allowing is the gift of “letting go in action”. When we allow after setting our intention, we “un-press” the pause button and move into a state of unfoldment. This is also the ultimate act of faith in expression. Faith in these moments, along with the notion of “letting go” can seem counter intuitive and down right hard. However, by exercising and strengthening our “muscle memory” in this process we enable ourselves to move through these difficult moments with split second precision, reconnecting us with our inner mastery; the mastery we came to the planet to express.
As we sail into the new year, we reflect upon where we have been and where we are going. We can’t know now how events and happenings will play out, all we know is that they will. By fortifying our skill set for effortless transitioning in thinking and action, we will be prepared and ready for the abundance that awaits us.
I am a practical kind of gal. Being a light worker, a working professional, mother, wife and friend to many, I have a busy schedule, and I try to figure out ways to artfully weave the essential practices that simplify and most greatly assist me in my life’s work. Meditation has been a huge alignment tool for me. I’ve never been an ace at meditating, but I KNOW that the clarity of my guidance in my role here in the physical realm is greatly assisted by quieting my mind chatter and connecting with my highest self and spirit support. This connection allows whatever is meant to come through to flow more freely.
As you have likely noticed, there is a LOT of information about shifting energies out there. I read the energy forecasts and reports voraciously as they help validate what it is that I am going through as a human being evolving into my infinite potential. I have noticed that in this shifting time where the paradigms are falling away, there is an increase in the spirit tourists passing through on their way “home”. To put it another way, as souls are leaving due to death or release from lower density energies, there can tend to be some confusion about what is happening and how to proceed. “Hey, what’s happening here? Am I dead? Who is this shiny sparkling being sitting here glowing like a rainbow?” This might be what these beings say to themselves as they pass by you. Wouldn’t you want to stop and take a peek?
As light workers with increasing capacities of light, we are attractive to beings that are “passing through”. These little window shoppers appear as little faces or eyes peeking in to our energetic space. It can be startling to see a pair of confused spirit eyes popping in for a look-see while we are having a peaceful moment of mindfulness. If this is something that is happening in your meditations, dream state, or even awake state, know that you are NOT alone. This is happening to many of us.
Here are are some tips that I’ve found helpful.
It is important to stay out of fear when having these experiences. It may seem like a tall order when some of the beings peeking in look a little creepy or mischievous, but they just need a little assistance, crowd control, really. Fear will only exacerbate the situation and create a thread of energetic resonance between you and that being, which you don’t want.
Here are suggestions for handling the curious ones.
- Intention Setting – First decide what your intention is before you: meditate, sleep and wake up for the day. Decide how you want the meditation session, healing session or dream session to go. This will have an enormous impact on the expansion you experience in your light work.
- Before meditation – Be sure the space you meditate in has a great feeling to it. Smudging the area with sage, bringing in your favorite crystals, and lighting candles will create a great vibe for your space.
- As you begin to meditate. Be sure to sit with a straight back. Laying down is preferred by some, having your spinal column stacked, straight and strong will enable you to be more of a clear conduit and in more physical alignment with your body.
- Your energy field. Set and balance your auric space by bringing in white and/or golden light. Set your intention by bringing in your guides, angels, archangels and/or the ascended master you feel the greatest connection with.
- Once you sense, see, hear or experience the onlooker, acknowledge that you are aware of the being’s presence. There is no need to be afraid just notice, as if you were noticing a person on a crowded bus.
- Communicate that this is your space.
- Let them know that they are not welcome in your space – setting boundaries is an important skill in any human endeavor.
- Communicate that they are in spirit form and not in a physical body, and they have loved ones who are waiting for them. Let them know that they can go to the light. They may not want to go to the dark – imagine a deep sea animal’s soul going to the light – they might prefer the dark and that is okay too.
- Ask your ascended master to assist you in escorting the being to the vibration that is most appropriate for this being. Allow this to take place.
- Repeat as many times is necessary.
Like any practice, it becomes easier the more it’s done. If you find yourself struggling with fear, it helps to remember that you are not alone. Utilize your spirit assistance by asking your “team” to help you stay out of fear, which is what they are there to do, help YOU.
This is a simple tool that can be used and altered as is appropriate for you. This is just meant to be one more tool to add to your light worker tool kit. My hope is that we amazing humans learn to trust that we have what it takes to assist in this powerful time of transition into the golden age.
