This Is How Your Aura Affects Your Health & Those Around You


By Arjun Walia | Collective Evolution

An ‘aura’ field can be defined as a luminous glow or radiation that surrounds a person’s body, almost like a halo. Ancient depictions of religious and spiritual figures often feature this aura, but today, modern science is discovering that we are all, in fact, surrounded by this type of field, and it can actually affect the way we feel.

We know that energy cannot be seen with the naked human eye, which is why attempts to measure invisible phenomena scientifically are often greeted with harsh criticism, but thanks to the groundbreaking work of dedicated scientists from all over the world, the concept of non-material science are starting to become accepted in the mainstream. This refers to the idea that the physical material reality we perceive with our senses isn’t the only reality that’s available for us to study in a modern day scientific manner.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla

Before getting into how our aura can affect us and those around us, I’d like to mention that human thoughts, intentions, feelings and emotions — ‘factors associated with consciousness’ — have been shown to have a direct effect on and correlation to our physical material world.

The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather to hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

The Human Aura

Work by the brilliant scientists over at the Institute of HeartMath can perhaps best shed light on one aspect of the human aura. A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world. For example, when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a certain message. Because the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, researchers are able to gather significant data from it. According to Rolin McCratey, Ph.D., and Director of Research at the Institute:

Emotional information is actually included and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself, and what we do individually really does count and matters. (source)

Did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields which change according to your emotions, or that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body, or that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? The bottom line is, feelings of love, gratitude, and compassion – any positive feelings whatsoever – have a larger impact than we could have ever imagined.

It’s fascinating to consider how the heart’s magnetic field might be interacting with and affecting other people, and it leads me to wonder if perhaps the electromagnetic fields around our bodies are somehow connected to that of the Earth. What type of effect, if any, might the information coded into our electromagnetic fields have on the information coded into the Earth’s field? It’s all very exciting, and there are so many questions still left to answer.


Transcending the Illusion of Light Versus Dark

By Jeff | Divine Cosmos

A belief that seems to be prevalent in many spiritual circles is that the ascension of humanity involves some sort of battle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness — a battle between good and evil.  Associated with this belief is the idea that we (the so-called awakened and enlightened ones) must defeat those of the darkness to successfully co-create new earth.  If you haven’t been drawn into this us-against-them mindset congratulations, you are probably better off without it (at least that’s my contention).  For those that have been drawn into this belief, I humbly offer my perspective on this subject for your consideration.

From a superficial standpoint, there is certainly some truth to this belief — there certainly is an ongoing struggle between light and dark on our world.  But when explored more deeply, you’ll find that this idea contains a great fallacy.  And worse yet, holding this belief might actually block one from ascending and contributing to co-creating the new Earth.

When immersed in a separation reality like our own, it is so easy to fall into the trap of believing that we are in a battle between good and evil, that those of the light is here to defeat those of the darkness and save the world.  Of course, this belief can only arise within a consciousness that is still in the grip of the illusion of separation.  And ironically, holding this belief can only sustain the disharmonious and fearful conditions that we have thus far co-created in our reality.  To understand and transcend the fallacy of light versus dark, you must first understand the illusion of separation that our reality was designed to produce, and why we chose to create an experience such a reality.  But before I explore all of that, let’s briefly examine the state of our world.

The Darkness in Our World

There’s no denying that there’s more than a little darkness in our world.  Fear, conflict, and suffering have been running rampant for as long as we can remember.  It certainly appears that evil is alive and well.  At least that’s the impression one might get from watching the mainstream news — whose primary purpose seems to be to sow fear.

But certainly, there is no shortage of souls that have been playing in the dark, to varying degrees, in many of their lives within the Earth Game.  Some of the most notorious of these dark ones are those involved in the so-called Cabal/Illuminati.  But there are many others, in a wide variety of positions in our society — and this includes many (but certainly by no means all) corporate, governmental, military, and even religious leaders.  These extremely self-serving people seem to measure their self-worth by how much wealth they can accumulate and how much power over others they can have, and they are typically obsessed with their own achievement and power and have little regard for the welfare of others.

The most dedicated of these people have been ruthlessly consolidating their power and wealth via their command of the international banking and financial system, by creating trans-national corporate empires, and infiltrating our governments with their minions.  Encouraging division amongst us is one of their most potent tools that facilitates their self-serving agendas.  They keep us divided by encouraging fear, competition, and conflict amongst us.

The Great Awakening

If you are reading this article, then you’re probably aware that there is a great awakening spreading throughout Humanity. More and more people are awakening to their true spiritual nature, the greater spiritual reality, and the metaphysical nature of existence.  It is this awakening that will inevitably lead to a great transformation of ourselves and our world.

As a part of this awakening process, more and more people are becoming acutely aware that humanity has been under the thumb of some very negative and self-serving people bent on their own self-aggrandizement and world domination.  Many awakening souls are more than a little shocked when they realize the truth of this — when they realize that we’ve allowed ourselves to be unwittingly manipulated and subjugated by these dark ones.  Some are so appalled by the unsettling revelations of lies, greed, manipulation, and control that they get drawn into judgment, blame, and condemnation of those seen as responsible (some even get stuck obsessively focusing on the injustice of it, a very unproductive state of mind that I call awakening shock syndrome).

With the shock of this realization, it’s no wonder that many people buy into the belief that a part of our ascension process involves a battle between good and evil and the defeat of the dark ones.  But I didn’t write this article to complain about the state of the world or to encourage people to feel like victims or to fuel resentment, judgment, blame, and condemnation.  I wrote this article to point out that the supposedly spiritual idea of “light versus dark,” and the “us against them” mentality that it represents, is a subtle yet insidious trap.  A trap that is critical to becoming aware of because it can potentially stop us from ascending and co-creating a new and better Earth.

The Metaphor of Light and Dark

It’s important to understand that the terms “light” and “dark” are simply metaphors for the degree of connectivity and alignment that one has with their higher-self.  When one is well-connected and aligned with the higher levels of their consciousness (their soul, over-soul, and beyond), they increasingly express a way of being that reflects the state of being of their higher-self.  This way of being is characterized by unconditional love, compassion, forgiveness, acceptance, allowance, fearlessness, positivity, and service-to-others — to name just a few.  The more you express these qualities, the more it could be said that you are “shining the light” of your higher-self into this world.

In the same vein, the term “dark” or “darkness” is simply a metaphor for the lack of connection and alignment with ones higher-self.  When one is poorly connected and misaligned with one’s higher-self, one’s way of being will veer off in the direction of negativity, fear, self-reservedness, and perhaps even lust for power-over-others.  How far one will go in this direction just depends on one’s degree of misalignment with their higher-self and their unique set of experiences.  The more one expresses this way of being, the more it could be said that one is in “darkness” or “playing in the dark” — or if we want to get over-dramatic “gone to the dark side.”

There is No Force of Darkness

It’s important to understand that there is no force of darkness. Darkness doesn’t exist on its own, it is not a thing unto itself, darkness is simply the lack of light. All that really exists is the “light” of your higher-self.  If you block a light source, you create a shadow — an area where the light is much dimmer.  When you block the “light” of your higher-self, you create darkness.  Metaphorically speaking that is, because remember what we are really talking about is the degree of connection and alignment with your higher self or the lack thereof, and the way of being you express in this world.

So, there is no “force” of darkness, no force of evil.  There is nothing pushing us to become negative and self-serving other than our own unconsciousness (our own disconnection from our higher-selves).  We are creating our own darkness by unwittingly blocking the love and light and wisdom of our higher-self — our darkness and the darkness in our world is self-created! Ultimately there is nothing other than the “illusion of separation” that causes one to follow the negative path or turn to the dark side.  More about the illusion of separation coming shortly.

Eckhart Tolle eloquently echoes my point about the origin of darkness, in his book A New Earth, when he said There is only one perpetrator of evil on the planet: human unconsciousness. With this realization, your victim identity dissolves, and your true power emerges. Instead of blaming the darkness, you bring in the light.

Our true selves, our higher-selves, are the love and light we seek — we are already that if we allow it.  But we ourselves are blocking the love and light of our higher-selves and creating the darkness in ourselves and our world.  This idea was eloquently expressed by Rumi, the beloved 13th-century Persian poet, and Sufi mystic when he said:

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

And the two most significant barriers to expressing the love and light of our higher-selves are undoubtedly our fear and ego.  These are the significant barriers that I think Rumi might have been eluding to, but of course, there is a multitude of variations.  But let’s not demonize fear and ego, because they are just natural consequences of diving into the experience of a separation reality construct like our own.  And as I alluded to earlier, to understand the fallacy of the “light versus dark” idea one has to understand the illusion of separation our reality provides us.

The Illusion of Separation

We specifically created our reality construct to have a separation experience, and it indeed produces a very powerful illusion of separation.  And of course, this was not a mistake, we (higher aspects of ourselves — our oversouls and beyond) intentionally designed this reality as the ultimate experience of individuality, separation, and limitation.  So, we understood full well what we were getting into when we chose to dive into the separation game.

We wanted to experience something dramatically different than our native state as formless and non-physical threads of Source Consciousness — eternal limitless creator beings!  We wanted to explore the possibilities and experiences that such a separation reality would provide us.  We wanted to explore the states of consciousness, and ways of being that would emerge within it and all their ramifications.  We wanted to see what that would be like and what it could teach us.

Playing the Separation Game

We’ve all been playing the separation game for quite some time now — we have all played many many rounds in this game. Each time we enter the game (incarnate) the Veil of Forgetting and Unknowing takes effect, and we forget everything prior to starting the game — we forget choosing to play, we forget our reasons for playing, we forget our learning and growth objectives for playing the current round, and we forget everything about the wider reality and the true nature of ourselves.

With the in-your-face highly convincing experience of separation that our reality presents our consciousness, it’s not surprising that we quickly get sucked into the drama of the game.  Because we don’t remember that we are eternal consciousness (non-physical and formless), we quickly become strongly identified with our bodies as who and what we are.  And since we can’t remember anything about the wider reality, the bigger picture, we quickly come to believe that the world that we perceive with our physical senses is all that there is.  And step-by-step we get drawn ever-deeper into the drama of the game, and ever-deeper into Separation Consciousness, and we become utterly lost within the game.

The Emergence of Egoic and Victim Consciousness

And once immersed in, and mesmerized by, the drama of the game we quickly lose our connection to our higher self and our consciousness, essentially, devolves.  But not really so much devolve as to attain a state unlike anything possible in any other context of experience.  A state of consciousness only possible within a separation reality like our own — an interesting and unique state that we might call Separation Consciousness.  And this state of consciousness has two major aspects; namely Egoic Consciousness and Victim Consciousness.

Egoic Consciousness is a state characterized by a very strong sense of identity and individuality — one which often expresses as self-centeredness, self-reservedness, greediness, defensiveness, and so on.  Victim Consciousness is a state characterized by the belief that one is largely at the mercy of circumstances beyond their control, and often expresses as fear, hopelessness, disempowerment, etc.  And because the state of our world is simply a reflection of our collective state of consciousness, our world is characterized by plenty of fear, greed, competition, and conflict.

Note that the common denominator here is FEAR.  Of course, fear is not an unreasonable reaction to what our reality sometimes presents us.  After all, there is plenty of apparent danger and limitation to worry about if we so choose.  Because fear naturally arises within a separation reality like our own, we don’t need to demonize it, all we need to do is to understand it.

Fear is the Root of Darkness

And here’s one of the most important things to understand about fear — it’s the number one thing blocking us from expressing the love and compassion of our higher selves.  Ultimately much of the hurtful negative self-serving things people do is driven by their fear — fear that they aren’t good enough or worthy, fear that they won’t have enough, fear that they are not safe, fear for their survival, etc.

And as the beloved Yoda character from the Star Wars stories so aptly pointed out — Fear is the path to the dark side.

Quote by Yoda: Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

The root of all the darkness in our world is FEAR.  Until we deeply understand this, we will find it difficult to unconditionally forgive and love those still playing in the dark. And until we do that we will be trapped in judgment and condemnation and be unwittingly perpetuating the world as we know it — a world of conflict and pain and suffering.  Only unconditional love can heal our world.

A recent message from one of my favorite non-physical teachers, Seth (via one of my favorite channelers, Story Waters) really hammers home this point.

Darkness is an illusion. Darkness is the absence of light and that absence of light comes through unconsciousness. And that unconsciousness is experienced as FEAR. Fear is that which hides the light. All are light.

The battle is not against ignorance (or evil) or those that are called ignorant (or evil); the battle is against FEAR… See those that appear ignorant clearly by seeing their fear. For when you see their fear you will not see them as other, you will not see them as separate and ignorant, you will see them as beings in fear.

And, when you understand they are in fear, and that they are not being driven by some nefarious force of darkness, then you will see that they are just loving beings in fear and you will be able to love them — then you will discover the compassion, the compassion of the awakened one, the compassion of the open heart that sees that all the ills in the world come from fear.

— Seth (via Story Waters, an excerpt from the Shards of Light Series)

When you understand that fear is at the root of every ill in our world, you are at the doorstep of transcending it and all that it leads too.  And transcending fear and shifting to love is one of the greatest challenges that the separation game has to offer.  Something that all the souls in the game right now we’re hoping they could achieve as a part of the great awakening and transformation game plan (more about that game plan later in this article).


How Your Frequency Determines the Dimensions in Which You Exist

Image result for multidimensionalNothing makes me happier than to read a new article about the worlds of science and spirituality coming together. Albeit a slow process, it’s been steady. At least for the 40 years that I’ve been here incarnated on planet Earth.

Let’s go back in time a bit…

For as long as I can remember, (no, really…all the back to literally my first vivid memory right before my 3rd Birthday), something always felt “off” to me. Like even the most confident adults seem to put out this vibe of inner doubt and a lack of real connection.

Very few adults could ever make me feel safe, comfortable, and just free to be a kid. Because I somehow felt in the presence of so many adults, underlying fear and the absence of simple joy within the moment.

While I could never fully grasp the full understanding of what I was sensing and feeling, I innately knew to trust it. No matter how afraid or alone I’ve ever felt, that inner guidance would always lead me to a safe place… the depths of my own imagination.

It was here that I was the Queen of my world, the architect of my own design, and the creator of all things dancing and free within my own consciousness. It was in the welcoming arms of my imagination that I could truly trust the world around me because I had made the entire thing myself.

We all remember being told by our parents or teachers that our imagination is some part of us that isn’t to be trusted. It was where all things real to children, but invisible to adults, such as spirits, angels, etc. come from, go to, and belong. That there is no place for them in the “real” world. But as kids, we all knew better. So, when and why did we ever stop knowing?

I see so many complacent souls reaching out from all parts of the world for connection, validation and a sense of belonging. Yet, we fear true connection these days it seems. The ones where all involved are so committed to and in tune with at the moment and all they are creating within that moment.

Unsure to this day if this is a blessing or a curse, I have come to learn that feeling, true, real, heart-wrenching feeling is what connects us all. And perhaps if we all learned the importance of NEVER losing that connection with ourselves, that inner child with the vivid and alive imagination, then maybe just maybe we wouldn’t be so afraid to reach out to one another…either to offer assistance or ask for it.

I am in the choir to which I preach, of course as I’ve never been quite good at asking for help. Working through my feelings of “not good enough” or “undeserving” have always kept me at the precipice of mastering the trick behind the way my own mind fucks me. Quite aware of my own self-sabotage, but seemingly content in waiting for it to stop itself when I know it must come from me.

So, what does all of this have to do with your frequency and dimensions? Well, I’m glad you asked. I am sure many of you are aware of Cymatics. It’s actually become a mild obsession of mine ever since the day I saw Science Vs. Music on YouTube by the incredible artist, Nigel Sanford.

If you’d like a taste, you can check it out here:

Long story short, Cymatics, from the Ancient Greek: κῦμα, meaning, “wave”, is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena. (Source: Wikipedia) It is not only beautiful to watch, but it also is visual proof that the world of sound and frequency has a physical signature we can bear witness to.

This opens up the proverbial “doors of perception” in that we can literally see how sound, language, tone and frequency truly build the world around us, that everything is energy and while it cannot be destroyed, this energy can be manipulated into some of the most loving or dark manifestations of our choosing. 

This is why the wise ones always say to be mindful of your thoughts as they become words that harden into your deeds and character. If you tune in closely and are paying attention, you can actually feel the shift in energy as your frequency adjusts. If someone jumps out at the bushes at you, you feel that rush of adrenaline, fear and need to escape, jump or scream. If someone you love brings you soup and flowers when you are ill, that simple act may overwhelm you with tears of joy, gratitude and a reconnection to your own Soul.

When we are aware of our thoughts and where they lie on the frequency scale, something beautiful happens over time. In my personal experience, when I feel good, happy, relaxed, I also feel open, expanded and confident. I may not know it at the time, but I am literally growing my own energy field, and thus my capacity to open to other dimensions.

No, this is not science-fiction, but rather the science of spirit. While we’ve come to believe that dimensions are all around us, and we are merely one matryoshka doll within the stack, what I’ve come to believe is that all dimensions exist WITHIN us simultaneously. I’ve also never been the same since first hearing quotes such as, “Everything you ever need to know is within you at all times.” “The only way out is through.” and “Go Within or Go Without.”

By claiming our multidimensional selves, we open up to all possibilities of our own potential and find that the more we expand that faster it all comes back around to reconnect us with our inner child. The one still playing out in the fields of our imagination…

Elemental Education: What We Can Learn From the Balance of Earth, Air, Fire & Water

Image result for elements quoteI’ve long considered myself a student of nature. As a child, I always had an innate wonder of the world around me when it came to the little things we now as adults, so often overlook. Things like watching gypsy moths climb trees or counting the number of stars on a clear summer night.

One thing I came to understand quite quickly into my childhood was that while the forces of nature are absolutely beautiful, they are equally as terrifying and destructive. And I would later in life learn that neither aspect of nature is better nor worse than the other, but rather each holds its own place in keeping the vital balance necessary to ensure the very forces of nature themselves continue to work as the organic framework upon which our world manifests itself into being.

Our Universe is based on a language of mathematics, and our dimension (the 3rd in case you weren’t paying attention lol) is based on a mathematical system of base-10 binary code. Yes, we literally live within the matrix, my friend and if you look closely enough into nature, you gain insight into a world which is expressed through mediums of light and sound. Tie this all together and we get the tools of creation weaved together into a universal language called fractal mathematics.

Now, I won’t get too into quantum physics on you here, but the fact that nonlocality proves the idea of separateness to be nothing more than an illusory human construct of the mind was perhaps my equivalent to someone else’s first skydive. Mainstream science shows that light is information; photons literally carry bits of data.

Cymatics also exposes us to the world of sound and frequency and their effects on matter. We know now that sound is a major factor in the creation and also the destruction of matter and is a much more powerful force that we give it credit for. The rush and exhilaration I felt upon the discovery and realization of, or what more aptly felt like a remembering of our ancestral and genetic ties to both light and sound lead me down a path that eventually brought me to esoteric studies of ancient areas of knowledge; particularly that of Spiritual Alchemy.

Traditional Alchemy is learning and mastering the stages of chemical reactions, in cohesion with the 4 forces of nature – Earth, Air, Fire & Water (and often mentioned is the “5th Element” or Spirit or the Aether.) It is based on the transmutation of base metals to create different bonds and chemical reactions to make gold.

To master alchemy, one masters all stages and knows to respect the forces of nature; both the side of creation and destruction as both are needed throughout many various transmutation processes. Ultimately, the goal here was to turn base metals into gold; thus creating the “Philosopher’s Stone” and also the key to eternal wealth and vitality.

When we look at the forces of nature individually, we can easily see both sides of each element. Earth creates islands, the landmasses for Man to live upon. Earth provides the soil for which we can grow sustenance. Earth can also shake and tear and swallow up the cities man has built in mere seconds via earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. Air is the vitality of prana that connects us to Source Creation. Air allows us life. Air can also rip with gushing winds and destroy lives and homes. Fire provides heat for Man when the climate may be cold. Fire gives us flame to cook food and sanitizes with its ash. Fire also burns and melts and can bring entire acres of land down to a crisp. However, even total destruction is laying a new growth bed for fresh forests to emerge within the ash. And finally, Water is within us as we are more than ¾ water! Water provides hydration to our cells and literally holds the energy of its environment. Water can also be quite destructive with flooding, and other horrific natural disasters like tidal waves and typhoons; although those we could consider a team effort of water AND air. Image result for elements quote

Nature asks us to walk the middle line all the time, we just have to remember to stop the noise within or chatty minds sometimes and listen. It is always guiding us to not avoid the extremes but to rather know when we taste one, we can always expect to taste the polar opposite as this is the electromagnetic rule of our dimension. (Check out the Hermetic Law of Polarity for more info!) I like to call it being a Gray Jedi. Not taking sides with the Light or Dark side, but rather giving each their due respect.

So many aspects of nature express this way of zero-point balance if we stop and look closer. And sometimes all it takes is a breeze, or a raindrop to wake something up that reconnects you, even if only for a moment to your inner child. The one that never forgets the beauty of a clear summer night sky, but one who also remembers that in order to appreciate the beauty nature and life affords us, we must be willing to look UP. 🙂

How You Can Blend the Higher Flow With the Lower and Bridge Between Worlds

By Open | openhand

Okay, so more and more people are speaking of the importance of aligning with the natural flow in life – to find greater harmony, fulfillment, and at-one-moment with the divine. But there’s an added complexity happening in the quantum field that I want to bring attention to. Because if you’re embarked on the spiritual path, it’s sure to be affecting you. It’s the realization that at least two main, sometimes contrasting, flows are influencing your consciousness.

Understanding and integrating these is important to your peace of mind. Because the interplay of the two will likely affect every choice that you make…

Consensus Realities for Collective Learning

‘The Flow’ descends down from the source through the dimensions inside you. It speaks first through higher mind, landing as a spontaneous knowing: “this is the way to go now.” Or else you’ll have visions of future-landing-now, and receive downloads of the educational purpose for how the moment is configuring. The moment is always there to teach you something about yourself and those around you. (For all of this to be function correctly, the higher mind needs to be activated).

So far so good.

But as the flow descends through the dimensions, souls are drawn together for a mutual learning experience which invokes and involves collective karma. Karma draws the threads of the quantum soup together, so as to create a reality which souls can engage in, in order to confront and process this karma.

This is where complexity happens.

The consensus reality (‘consensus’ at a soul level, which is frequently unconscious) creates a reality with form, encompassing judgments, which are intrinsic to the karma. Like for example, you may consume animals without consideration. Or likewise, exploit the resources of mother earth without feeling the need to be compassionate for her.

Or else people configure the environment to suit purely human needs. Such unconscious judgments arise from collective karma and create a reality with all manner of rules, regulations and ‘normal acceptability’ (but often without conscious accountability).

Consider for example how ‘alternative medicine’ is being marginalized by the system because of the judgments society makes. Consider how the powers-that-be manipulate the climate or encourage genetic modification of prime foods, without labeling, and with stark consideration for the wider impact on the environment.

Becoming a Bridge between Worlds

All of these judgments, and countless more, shape first in the 4D field, which contains the karmic footprint humanity is working within. And this karmic footprint has a flow all of its own. It’s a harmonizing flow that works to ‘connect the dots’ so to speak – to connect up the fragments of light wanting to emerge from this density. The light progressively emerges and reality realigns with the source, the higher flow, inviting all those within it, to join the movement.

In each of the judgments, the soul is accepting a compromise, in order to build the reality and have the experience – albeit a distorted experience.

What does this mean in a practical sense?

It means that in any engagement – within families for example or with your work colleagues – each will be being influenced by two varying flows, depending on their degree of awakeness. If they’re pretty asleep, they’ll be reacting mainly to the lower flow, which has created this reality. If they’re fairly awake, then they’ll be receiving higher flow impulses to change the reality.

The higher flow is constantly seeping into the lower one, and working to connect up with it, so as to transform it into a higher vibration – it’s fueling the current transition from 3D to 5D reality.

It means you’ll have to bridge between worlds in just about everything that you do, which is going to frequently feel like you’re being pulled in two different and contrasting directions within the choices you make. It’s going to feel very destabilizing within, for quite some time, until this phenomenon is integrated.

How do you integrate this destabilizing experience?

You have to stand in the middle of the two realities – as the bridge between them. You have to keep feeling for the higher truth, but then expressing it in an as accessible way as possible. You’re not compromising the higher truth that you feel (and observe being backed up by synchronicity), but you can always soften the way you express it – to make it less harsh for example, more understanding and bridging.

So in disagreements, it’s always good to build bridges by first honoring the other’s truth, no matter how distorted. Work to build a bridge by empathizing with at least some aspect of what they’re saying – even and especially when they’re young and not yet emotionally mature.

Begin by supporting and upholding their truth. I’ve found it’s then much more likely they’ll embrace aspects of your point of view. I call it building bridges.

You will likely feel pulled in two different and contrasting directions. It’s often like two different worlds exist in different parts of your brain. Don’t worry! You’re not going crazy. If you let go of the need for any kind of outcome in these situations and just keep aligning with the rightness of truth that you can feel, then you’ll become adept at dancing between the world’s and blending the two different flows.

Dancing Between the Realities

It also pays to be discerning with the truth that you express – when, where and how. Not everyone – in fact, most – are not going to be in a place where they can understand the higher reality and flows that you’re plugging into. Although the soul will yearn to be transparent (clarity and truthfulness are key qualities of the soul), nevertheless, it won’t necessarily pay to blurt out the entire workings of the cosmos when its homework time or your teenager is just off to the local rave!

So you’ve got to learn how to dance between the realities. Recognize the higher flow is always an educational opportunity – for the integration of the soul. This will embrace all those around you, even if they don’t yet get it. You may even see the lessons they’re supposed to get but aren’t yet ready to. Play your part, but be as gentle as possible – don’t use a sledgehammer to crack the outer layer!

In the lower flow, it will get more turgid – more regimented, according to the consensus karmic reality created. People will fall over, have challenging times and come a cropper in this reality. Nevertheless, we all only ever manifest the reflections we need, no matter how challenging.

So bless these distorted manifestations – these ‘accidents’ on the path – for they are excellent mirrors. And as people learn through them, more and more of the flow feeds in and connects up. And as it does, then the lower reality begins to shift more strongly and transform. In fact, your very consciousness is acting as a channel to feed in transforming flow.

Unsung heroes everywhere!

Did I say it was easy? It is not. But know that you’re not alone. You’re never alone. Higher consciousness is all around you, supporting you. It won’t always tell you exactly what to do however, because this is all about self-empowerment – self-realization. But it will give plenty of reflections and clues on the way.

Take heart, there are literally thousands of unsung heroes like you out there in the field, here to channel in the light. You may at times feel like you’re alone and perhaps going a bit crazy. You’re not! Stand firm, test you the truth, be prepared to adapt and evolve. But nevertheless, build trust in your truth. Trust in the bridge that you’re becoming, even if many around you haven’t got a clue what you’re doing!

Here you are, blending the higher flow into the lower one. A herculean task!

I see you.

7 Signs That You Are Experiencing A Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual Awakening

We have all experienced times in our lives where life is chaotic and our patience and faith are tested. Usually, when things are not going well and you are feeling that you may have lost your way, you are in fact experiencing a spiritual awakening. A spiritual awakening is not as lovely and dreamy as it sounds. Often the way spirit gets us to grow and evolve is through challenges and a few dark nights of the soul. It is through these challenges that we are provided the opportunity to make conscious decisions to work through our unhealthy habits and disconnect from toxic relationships and careers.

How Does One Know If They Are Experiencing A Spiritual Awakening? 

  1. You have zero tolerance for drama and gossip and cannot and will not be bothered with it at all.
  2. You feel ungrounded and your ability to focus is challenged.
  3. You crave time alone to yourself and would like to be left alone.
  4. You begin to question just about everything – your job, your lifestyle habits, your relationships and seek alternate healthier alternatives.
  5. Your intuition is at an all-time high and your dreams are vivid and are filled with tons of messages.
  6. There is a breakdown of order in almost every area of  your life, there are s@$! storms everywhere.
  7. You do not feel like yourself. You may even be uncomfortable in your own skin. It almost seems like you are living your life through different eyes.

How To Manage These Shifts

  • Be patient and gentle with yourself.
  • Release judgement about how things look in the moment.
  • Meditate
  • Don’t rush to make huge changes without giving a lot of thought to your options and checking your resources before making a drastic lifestyle change.
  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Schedule a healing date with your favorite and trusted energy practitioner.
  • De-clutter your home/office/car/mind.
  • Sage yourself and your personal space.
  • Carry and or wear grounding stones such as: hematite, black tourmaline, tiger’s eye, fluorite and or selenite.
  • Pay attention and listen to your intuition. It is going to show you the next best step for you to take.
  • Remind yourself of this truth – This too shall pass and you will be stronger, wiser and happier for these experiences.
  • Journal, write down your thoughts, feelings and inspirations.

There is no way to avoid challenges in our lives and change is always a constant in our lives. We might as well suit up, show up and put our best foot forward and make the best out of our experiences. Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.

What Cycle of Collective Awakening Are We In Now? This Ancient Chart Shows Us

By Tanaaz | Forever Conscious

We are all part of the collective consciousness. This means that together we are all responsible for the creation of life on Earth.

If we were to understand this on the deepest of levels, seeking higher consciousness would be the most important journey in life.

Higher consciousness would be more important than money, fame or the material world because with higher consciousness everyone would benefit and everyone would feel the bliss.

If we were to all raise our levels of consciousness there would no war, no famine, no abuse, no disease, and no hatred.

Masculine and feminine energies would be in balance and there would be no natural disasters or environmental threats to the planet. The world would be a much different place.

Many, many years ago, this is how we lived on Earth. In fact, there was a time in history that higher consciousness reigned supreme. This was referred to as the Golden Age and is part of a cycle known as the “Great Year” or the Yuga Cycle.

The Yuga Cycle tracks the Sun, Earth and the planet Sirius. When the Sun is closest to Sirius, we enter into this amazing period of higher consciousness called the Golden Age. When the Sun is furthest away from Sirius, we enter into the Iron Age or Kali Yuga.

The Iron Age is where consciousness is lost and replaced with ego, greed, materialism and so on. During the Iron Age, our spiritual powers and ability to raise our consciousness becomes dimmed.

According to the Yuga Cycle, which is 24,000 years long, planet Earth and our collective consciousness move around this cycle from periods of high consciousness to low consciousness.

In a way, we can think of it like seasons. The Iron Age is when our planet is in the “winter”, and consciousness is put to sleep and we forget who we really are.

In the “summer” however, we have full access to our powers and potential and are able to access higher levels of consciousness and other dimensions and download intuitive and telepathic information.

In 2012, it is believed that we finally emerged from the Iron Age or Kali Yuga into the Bronze Age.

In the Bronze Age, consciousness begins to slowly rise. More and more people start to become aware of their spirituality and more and more people are open to things like crystals, energy healing and even, things like this website.

After the Bronze Age, we move into a higher level of consciousness known as the Silver Age and then into the highest level of consciousness which is known as the Golden Age. This movement is known as ascending consciousness.

After the Golden Age, we move back into the Silver Age, into the Bronze Age, and into the Iron Age. This movement is known as descending consciousness.

During the Golden Age, our wise ancestors understood that we would have to lose our levels of consciousness during the Iron Age, so they left clues. Our ancestors left clues so we could remember who we truly are and our pure potential.

These clues are seen in highly advanced, sacred sites like Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza. They are also seen in ancient artifacts like the dead sea scrolls, in ancient temples and so on.

The higher our consciousness raises, the more likely we are to keep uncovering these clues and understanding what they are really all about.

Lightworkers, Earth Angels, and Starseeds are also sent to Earth during the dark periods to bring reminders.

The Yuga Cycle does not track consciousness on an individual level, but rather a global level. The Yuga cycle is used to determine the era of humanity we are in, and where we are heading as a society.

The Yuga Cycle also matches up with the astrological ages. When we shifted into the Age of Aquarius on December 21, 2012, we also shifted into the Bronze Age.

The next shift into the Silver Age lines up with our movement into the Age of Capricorn and the Golden Age with our shift into the Age of Scorpio.

The Golden Age lasts the longest and is 9,600 years, followed by the Silver Age which is 7,200 years, the Bronze Age which is 4,800 years and the Iron Age which is 2,400 years.


Are You Experiencing Ascension Symptoms? Here Are the Most Common Ones and Remedies for Relief

Ascension Sympton-compressed

By Michelle Walling | in5d.com

By now most people have heard of ascension symptoms associated with energy fluctuations and clearing in the body. As more photonic light is showered upon the planet, our bodies continue to clear out the old to make way for the new. Our bodies are morphing and expanding like a butterfly in a cocoon, and the emergence will allow the freedom to spread our wings and fly to places we’ve only dreamed of.

The Importance of Grounding

The Importance of Grounding

The planet is being electromagnetically altered so that all beings can be plugged into it once again. Grounding the energy as it is filtered through our sun to our bodies is most important as we continue to get stronger and more frequent waves of energy. This energy has gradually increased over time in order to keep from blowing a circuit breaker in our bodies. If a person is not grounded, they can crash and burn and fry out, like the electrical plugs in a house. If the electrical currents are not matched up, the body could eventually be destroyed.

The nervous system in the body is the key to opening up portals to ancient wisdom. It allows the connection with the higher self in order for a person to remember they are, where they came from, and where they are going. The nervous system must be able to take the photonic current into the body, transduce the high energy, and to fit it inside the body.

Higher expressions of a person’s soul make a connection and help to open the portals as a person grounds themselves into the planet. Committed carriers of light have an opening in their auric field. This opening forms a pillar of light and allows guardians to come and help with the transduction. The nervous system is a highway within the body and can only move at the rate at which you can process the data over the cells. Many are still cleaning out caverns that are filled with darkness.

The photonic electrical current we are receiving runs through our bodies via chakras, which should be spinning wheels of light. If the chakras are blocked then we may not feel like we have any energy and may begin to experience ascension symptoms. Conscious effort in clearing the chakras with various healing techniques is the best way to get through this period of an intense clearing. It is also necessary to work on clearing any stuck energy in the emotional, spiritual, and mental bodies that surround the physical body.

Ascension Symptoms and Remedies

The following are some common ascension symptoms that people are experiencing, along with methods that have been proven to help. Do not hesitate to seek medical advice for serious conditions and always listen to your own intuition when it comes to taking care of yourself.

Symptom: Ascension flu: As the chakras expand, the energy within the body begins to break down the toxins and flushes them out through the blood. As the blood is carried throughout the body, it is not compatible with the new energy signature and can cause you to feel like you have been hit by a Mack truck. Aches and pains can cover the whole body and fever can get quite high. This feels worse than the common flu and may or may not be accompanied by congestion in the lungs.

Remedy: Rest! Let the body do its job of flushing out harmful toxins that may have been accumulated for years. A week of lying in bed is better than not making the shift with the planet. Cold lemon spring water with Bach Flower Rescue Remedy is great to assist your body and you can alternate with hot lemon water with honey. Strawberry and banana fruit smoothies will give your immune system the extra boost it needs. Supplementing your diet with fortifying enzymes will assist your body with the flush. Fruits and raw veggies are a great source of enzymes. Take a bath with a ½ cup ofHimalayan salt and ½ cup baking soda at least once a day, and rinse off with a quick shower afterward. The salt and soda help to draw out the toxins and the salt will replenish the salt that is lost through fever. Add essential oils to the bath to boost yourimmune system.

Symptom: Chronic headaches and/or tingling scalp caused by the opening of the crown and third eye chakras.

Remedy: As with all of your chakras, there could be a block of energy flow or something causing the inability of expansion of the chakra. Headaches that encompass the whole head can be attributed to the crown chakra and head aches between the eyes that seem to go all the way to the back of the head and neck can be attributed to the third eye or pineal gland activation. Ask your spirit guides and angels to help regulate the amount of energy you are receiving in order to alleviate the pain. Peppermint oil and ginger tea are great natural remedies for headaches. For pain between the eyes, acupressure massage can be helpful. Feverfew supplement from the sunflower family has been shown to be effective in relieving migraines. Tingling scalp is a symptom that can be easily remedied with a good set of fingernails- massage gently with love.

Symptom: Dizziness and the “floating” effect: If you feel dizzy, your hearing gets muffled, and you begin to feel like you are floating, then you may be about to lose consciousness, or temporarily leave your body. If you are standing fully erect you run the risk of injury by fainting and falling down. This can be caused by an energy flux and/or dehydration and symptom stress.

Remedy: To minimize injury from fainting. Immediately sit down when you are hit with this dizzy or floating feeling. Close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths. Intend for you to ground and stay in your body. Drink a few sips of cold spring water and be sure to get up slowly.

Symptoms: Nausea, gas, bloating, irregular bowel movements, and diarrhea can be caused by the opening and clearing of the solar plexus chakra. Toxins and emotional energies are foreign to the body, and therefore are stored in the intestinal lining for a lack of a better place to store them. Karmic ties are also released through the bowel system of the body.

Remedy: Bach Rescue Flower Remedy is a good natural essence to assist the intestines. Aloe Vera juice in a smoothie or mixed in with water is also good to soothe and cleanse. If the symptoms persist, it may be a good time to do a natural cleanse supplement that can be taken in pill form or can be added to a smoothie in powder form. Natural fiber such as psyllium husk can also slough off the intestinal wall and can be added to a smoothie.

Do you see these colors?

When meditating, do you see purple, blue, or white colors moving around in your 3rd eye? If you do, then you are SO CLOSE to opening your 3rd eye! This is the stage where most people give up because they can’t seem to get any further than seeing colors moving fluidly in their mind’s eye.

Do this right before you go to sleep to open your 3rd eye

Right before you fall asleep, your mind goes into the alpha state. This is the state where it’s most conducive for channeling but you’ll also get visions while in this state.

How To Connect To the Golden Ray To Accelerate Your Spiritual Growth


By Ahtayaa Leigh

Have you been noticing 12:12, 1:44 or some variation of these number sequences?  If so, then you are being called by Great Spirit to acknowledge your role in anchoring the Golden Ray of Unity Consciousness into the 144 Consciousness Grid of Planet Earth.  The 144 Consciousness Light Grid is the multidimensional energy field of Mother Earth, which influences the collective consciousness of humanity.  It is through this grid that Golden Ray energy from the Great Central Sun is distributed to all sentient and non-sentient beings on Earth.

The Golden Ray is the 12th Ray of Creation and is the frequency of God’s Light that emanates from the Great Central Sun of our universe.  It encompasses all the rays of God’s light that precede it, and coming straight from Source, it’s a highly potent light medicine for healing all afflictions, initiating a complete transformation of body, mind and soul.

When you connect with the Golden Ray in healing you connect with your Highest Self; the aspect of you which resides in Oneness with the Creator.  From this vantage point the best solution for every imbalance is known and the appropriate healing is transferred to your complete body system through the light of the Golden Ray.

The Golden Ray brings with it qualities of peace, harmony, unconditional love, abundance, creativity, and probably most importantly, it balances the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies within.  It is particularly potent at healing deep trauma from past and concurrent lifetimes that prevent the soul from being whole.

When we work with the Golden Ray for healing we act as conduits for the light of the Golden Ray to enter the Earth plane from the Great Central Sun, bringing great healing to the collective.  The collective consciousness is flooded with the energies of unconditional love, peace, harmony and balance.  These energies are absorbed by each soul according to their highest good and the highest good of all and to the best of their ability in that particular moment.

The more golden light we consciously channel into Mother Gaia’s energy body, the more we raise vibration of the collective, leading to more and more souls awakening to their divinity.  For those who are already awake, and ready, it activates their DNA to gradually restore their original Divine Gold-print.  Working with the Golden Ray is an opportunity for accelerated spiritual growth.  The more you work with it, the deeper you will align with your higher purpose, awakening dormant skills and abilities in healing and other forms of Spiritual work.

You can easily connect with the Golden Ray in meditation.  For example, sit or stand with your spine upright so that the energy can easily be transmitted through your chakras from the Great Central Sun and into the Heart of Mother Earth.  You can visualize golden light traveling down from the Great Central Sun entering your crown chakra, cleansing and charging each chakra as it travels down through your root chakra and into the Heart of Mother Gaia.

Sit for as long as you feel guided allowing the golden light to flow through you and into the Earth, spreading out through the 144 Consciousness Grid.  Set your intention to be a channel for Divine Healing power and ask that all healing to be for the highest good of all.  As you allow the Light of Christ to penetrate your consciousness, spread your golden wings and wrap them around every heart and soul on Earth so that they may awaken to deeper levels of unconditional love, peace, harmony, creativity and balance.

Every prayer, every intention and every heartfelt wish will be consummated by our dear Mother Gaia who will lift up the collective, awakening many from their slumber and bringing Heaven closer to the Earth.  Thank you for your unfaltering service.  Know that you are loved beyond measure and that you are celebrated in Heaven.

Here is a guided meditation that you can use to connect with the Golden Ray to purify body, mind and soul:

Empower and Heal Yourself With The Archangels

The angelic realm is here to assist us along our journey. There are many different types of angels in the angelic realm and each has a specific purpose for humanity as well as the universe.

I prefer to work with the powerful and beautiful energy of the 4 main archangels to anchor specific energies for my private and professional work. I align myself with their vibrations for healing (self and others), for wisdom, for loving assistance with my relationships and to help me when I am feeling challenged with life in general.

As with the entire angelic realm, we must call upon these light beings for their assistance if we wish to have their presence in our lives. Yes, they often step in to help us when we are struggling, but for the most part, if we would like help with specific areas, it is always best to call upon them. Each of the 4 main archangels has a different vibration and purpose.

I have broken down their specific energetic influences (specialties) as well as how to align yourself with them. By educating ourselves with the Archangel correspondences, we are able to align ourselves with their vibrations more easily and are able to identify their presence.

The 4 Main Archangels

Archangel Raphael is known as the healer. He helps those who work with healing energy and those who are in need of healing. He heals and soothes the mind, body, and spirit.

Oils – anise and lavender

Crystals – prehnite, aventurine, serpentine and jade 

Direction – face the East to align your energy with Archangel Raphael

Color – yellow and green

Day of the Week – Tuesday

Archangel Michael is the warrior Archangel. He protects us from darkness and is especially protective of those who are in the area of service to humanity. Archangel Michael also helps us with our electronics, cut unhealthy emotional cords in our relationships and helps keep our space free and clear of negativity.

Oils – frankincense and myrrh

Crystals – amber, clear quartz, sugilite

Direction – face the South to align your energy with Archangel Michael

Colors – red and gold

Day of the Week – Sunday

Archangel Gabriel is known as the soul’s keeper or protector. Gabriel also watches over children and the childbirth process. Archangel Gabriel lends his energy to oracles, prophets, counselors and those who are creative in the arts such as writing, music, and artwork.

Oils – jasmine and myrrh

Crystals – moonstone, selenite, and aquamarine

Direction – face the West to align your energy with Archangel Gabriel

Colors – orange and blue

Day of the Week – Monday

Archangel Uriel helps us to connect with our ancestors and brings in peace and justice. You may call upon Archangel Uriel to assist with changes in the weather which is often created as a result of mankind’s collective thoughts and emotions.

Related Article: 6 Signs You’re an Earth Angel

Oils – chamomile and sandalwood

Crystals – jet, apache tear, and obsidian

Direction – face the North to align your energy with Archangel Uriel

Colors – brown and green

Day of the Week – Wednesday

Now that you have this information, what are you to do with it?

My suggestion would be to decide which Archangel you would like to work with and then gather the crystals, oils, or even face the direction of that Archangel and request their assistance in your life. You may also create an altar dedicated to one, several or all of the Archangels and write down your intention and place your intention in the center of your altar. Meditating with your favorite Archangel also is another way to absorb their powerful energy and their loving assistance. There is no limit to how you may work with these magnificent beings. I assure you that the more you do work with them, the more you will see, hear and feel their presence in your life.

Blessings and Light,

3 Empowering Tips To Help You Assimilate the Big Energetic Shifts We’re All Going Through

Embracing the universial energy-compressed

By Michael Forrester | in5d.com

There is a barrier of wisdom that is being shattered by those who are choosing light over darkness and love over hatred. Right now there exists a potential for this planet that has never been felt or witnessed at any time in history, and it is mostly due to those who are surfing the new wave of consciousness and showing others how to do the same. The most difficult thing for people to embrace will be the new energy of change. So how do we adapt to a new consciousness when nothing works the way it used to?

You may have found yourself struggling the past few years with both gradual and abrupt changes in your life. Perhaps a shift in employment, financial hardship, relocation, the end of relationships, or even death of loved ones. Look at these things with love–not disappointment, anger or resentment. They have all happened for a reason and they will continue happening, both to you and those around you. You will notice it and it will soon be very obvious that things will never be the same. It is a time of great change. Get used to it because it is a thing of beauty.

Related Article: 7 Signs That You Are Experiencing A Spiritual Awakening

There has never been a time of greater consciousness on planet Earth as there is today. NEVER. No cycle, even 30 or 60 thousand years ago comes close to the level of consciousness we have on the Earth today. But it came with a few bumps on the road.

Those bumps are not confined to those still sleeping, awakening, or awakened. It’s everybody. It is the young, the old, the rich, the poor, the human, the animal, Gaia, the secular and the non-secular. It is everything.

There is not one human being on Earth today that truly understands what is coming because they continue to interpret concepts from a linear third density reality–a reality that is (virtually) long gone and no longer making all the rules within the new consciousness. It’s now about multi-dimensionality. How can we exist within new energy thinking through old patterns? We can’t. We won’t. Not without thinking and feeling through new states of awareness. An understanding that everything is happening at once. That we are selecting the potentials that best align with our current state of being, picking those we think will work and then manifesting those experiences.

Until we grasp that the new consciousness revolves around a quantum reality sifting through multiple dimensions, we will keep repeating the same old patterns until it hits home. I repeat, all the things that are happening to you right now will keep happening over and over until you can transform the new reality within you. It’s a reality that works for you, instead of against you. A reality that flows freely instead of resisting what could be.

So here are 3 states of mind that will help with the shift:

1. Don’t Allow Fear To Create Doubt

What does darkness do when it realizes it is losing? It fights back like you wouldn’t believe. It is cowardly and has tantrums like a child. It wants to make you doubt your self-worth in an awakening world.

The dark energy knows when you fear anything and it understands exactly how to make you doubt your own awakening. There have been many people who have been workers for the light who have now claimed the light is working for the dark. Watch for this. It is happening more often. It is a misinterpretation of what light work is and a fear of what it can do. There can be no justice for these people. Only love. For the path they choose is correct for them.

As soon as the darkness senses your vulnerability it will take you to a high level of discomfort and you won’t like it. It will expose you because you fear, and when you fear it has you exactly where it wants you.

Most know what is coming and it will manifest in different ways for all of you. For some, it will be deeply rooted in personal turmoil and relationships and for others, it will politics and the international landscape of conflict. Look for race wars, gender wars and political wars to increase, because this is how the dark divides humanity. Look back in history and you will see the cycle. Are you going to fall for it again, or are you going stand and love humanity as a whole?

You don’t have to let darkness cause any emotion within you that causes discomfort. The dark energy is not intelligent. It is stupid. Really stupid. When it senses its own demise it keeps doing the things that lead to its demise. It’s not going to work this time and you will see it. You will see the attempts to cause division and they won’t affect you the same way. When you stand in the light, these things can’t touch you. It only takes one candle to illuminate a large area and darkness wants to blow it out. How is it going to blow it out when there are thousands of other candles all over the world? I am right beside you helping you keep that candle lit and I will never leave your side. You are my strength just as you feel I am yours. So sorry dark ones but these candles aren’t going anywhere. If you want darkness, go where there is darkness, but go before we get there, because once we get there, no longer will there be darkness.

Duality knows when any imbalance exists and the relationship of dark and light is recalibrating. It will even happen in your dreams. It will try whenever it can to make you doubt the new energy. It can’t win because it has already lost. It just doesn’t know it yet. But it will try…really hard to make you think it has a chance.

Related Article: 3 Sacred Paths to Reclaiming Your Divinity: Spiritual Journey

Always remember that darkness has no resident energy. It is only the absence of light. It has no energy of its own. It cannot exist when light is present. It can only exist when the light fades. How does the light fade? Anger, hostility, hatred, fear, etc. The dark loves lower level consciousness. It thrives there. So show your power. Stand in your power and light and show the dark it can no longer exist within you. When you stand in your mastery, darkness goes away.

2. Be Compassionate To All Things

Did you know that compassionate energy is the strongest of all energies? Yes, even stronger than love. Love is second and once it matures, it becomes compassion. Can you be compassionate instead of critical? Can you be compassionate about things you need to endure? Can you have compassion for that person that cut you off on the highway? Or that person that cheated their way through a line you waited patiently for? Can you have compassion for your politicians? ALL of them. Not just your favorites. How strong is your compassion filter?

Can you be with those who make you angry, anxious, fearful and see the God in them? The masters that walked the Earth had the highest level of compassion of all beings. They had the ability to realign the energy of others solely based on their level of compassion that they could emit to others. That is why they were masters and why everybody wanted to be with them. You were once them and you will be again. It starts with compassion right here, right now.

Do you feel that God, our prime creator is compassionate in all circumstances? Do you still feel the need to believe that God must be humanized and judge, punish or condone violence to those who are immoral in your perception? Does an all loving God selectively choose who to be compassionate to? When you can begin to harmonize answers to these questions that mesh with the energy among us, you will begin to see things (all things) through alternate perspectives. You will begin to see compassion in everything and a system of love that is far beyond what can be explained in words.


How Your Needs and Desires Help You to Heal and Grow Spiritually

By Kalayna Colibri | In5d.com

My ever-healing heart and the energy of Mary Magdalene, want to share this invitation with you today…

You are so beloved…why are you afraid to desire?

You are created for adventures… why have parts of you, soul aspects of you, decided that it’s safer, cleaner, not to claim your needs and wants?

Do you, arising sacred human heart, feel how this is what keeps you from entering the processes you most need and want to, in your soul? Those sacred upheavals of emotion and soul bursts that show you what you need to feel and heal next? These feelings of ‘I will never get what I want’ are actually a shout crowding a gentler whisper that says, ‘I’m afraid I actually might get what I want…’.

Want. Desire. Need. These are loaded words, oft kept in a box, labeled ‘danger!’ and rightly so… this Pandora’s Box is a life changer, the love you eventually can’t ignore though parts of you may try so hard to do so. There is nothing wrong with the delay of feeling what you most want, for you are wired to want MORE anyways. You are in gratitude for what you have, yes, yet this gratitude needs more space for breathing too, for expanding into a bigger heart container that also holds desires for more depth of relationship, a more suitable geography, an impeccable soul and heart romance, soul friendships within conscious community, challenges to just keep going, moving, healing, diving in… Gratitude cannot really be used to suppress your desires, but can instead be used to enrich and enliven them.

Your most sacred terrain of change is in your healing heart. No true and lasting changes can be made on the outside without the inside leading the way. New wants, needs, and desires rise up from process, as an aspect of feeling parts and soul fragments of you, as something to keep you heading along your path. They are meant to shift and change as you are, yet this shifting and changing need not be a dulling of your sharpness of wanting, your ability to create and co-create. If anything, it sharpens you further, clarifying with greater depth and breadth what it is you most deeply want NOW and NOW. If you are feeling yourself, if you are in a healing process, you need not worry about your desires being over-indulgent or false or harmful. As your heart heals, so do your motivations in every area of life, until life has no ‘areas’ or ‘segments’ or especially ‘compartments’ but is one life lived in and according to LOVE… where does LOVE want me to flow today? What does it want to illuminate for me in this phase, in this very moment?

The deeper fears of desiring and wanting, live under the resistance to feeling them… they are the vulnerability of feeling that nothing in life is guaranteed and yet if your heart truly wants it, the path aligns to make it happen WITH you, not for or to you. The desire is the beacon, the light at the end of the sometimes long, long tunnel. It is the picture, the double-vision you can hold fast to while walking among hot coals of sometimes shadowy process grounds. It is the warm voice beckoning you to keep moving onward by turning inward, seeing for the first time that this voice is yours.


12 Great Ways to Cleanse & Strengthen Your Aura

“Every cell in my body is loved and healthy”

Your aura is simply an extension of you.   When strong it acts as a protective shield.  When fragile or damaged it can leave you drained, unwell and feeling disconnected from yourself.

Think of your aura as your own personal bodyguard (in the form of a giant bubble) that simply “flicks off” anything stressful, disturbing or potentially draining that you may be sensitive too.

I’m a firm believer in cleansing and nurturing the aura for the overall integrity of our health and well being.    Particularly, when many ancient cultures from around the world believe, that illness first starts with a weakness in our auric field.

Years ago I completed a crystal healing practitioner course and discovered how effective crystals are in cleansing, repairing and strengthening the aura.  Black tourmaline would have to be my favorite as it can draw off and then transmute negative energies we may have knowingly or unknowingly been exposed too.

If crystals are not your “thing” then I have shared with you below, a collection of aura cleansing and strengthening remedies that I have gathered and used (at some stage) over the past 20 years.

Please feel free to share your own aura strengthening remedies that you have successfully used the past, I’d love to hear them.

12 great ways to strengthen your aura

1) Yogic cleansing bath

This recipe helps removes chemicals from your physical body and negativity from your aura.  Soak for 20 minutes each day and repeat for 7 days.

If you start to feel dizzy or a little weird leave bath immediately as you have successfully loosened and removed enough toxins and negativity for one day.

  • 1 lb Baking soda
  • 1 cup Sea salt

* Six special bath recipes for sleep, relaxation and healing:

2) Sage smudge stick

The smoke from white sage is known by the North American Indians to be very cleansing.   I love white sage and have used it successfully for over 20 years to remove negative vibes that I sense in my home or around me.

Sage emits negative ions which is the good stuff you find in the air just after a storm or at the ocean.

To cleanse your aura, simply light your sage smudge stick and use your hand to direct the smoke over your head, face, front/sides of your body, under your feet, around your hands and arms, and as much of your back as you can reach.

3) Let the sun feed your aura

Lots of lovely sunshine is known to feed and expand the aura.  Spending time outside amongst nature is incredibly healthy for your body, mind, and soul.

The sun fuels you with energy, optimism and loads of vitamin D whilst nature nourishes your senses and grounds you.

4) Sea salt

Swimming in the ocean or soaking in a saltwater bath greatly helps to cleanse the aura and draw out stress.

The sun expands and feeds your aura whilst the sea carries away the negativity.

If you don’t have a bath, and not near the ocean, simply give your body a sea salt scrub before taking a shower.  Grab a handful of sea salt and rub it all over your skin before showering.  It helps remove dead skin cells, refreshes your aura and draws out toxins.

5) Cold shower

Cold showers have the ability to clear away negativity in your auric field, remove toxins, improve circulation and draw out tension from your body.

I have personally put the cold shower theory to the test for a whole 3 months (over summer a few years ago).  The results were amazing.

My thoughts were clearer, I felt lighter, more energy and things which normally bothered me and hung around my thoughts for days – came and went with ease.  I didn’t hold onto negative stuff as I had done before.  It helped me greatly through a very difficult time in my life.

Pro tip – for a cleaner feeling, use a shower filter. To learn more about shower filters check out Healthy Water Guide’s AquaBliss shower filter review.

6) Sound medicine

Sound is recognized by many ancient cultures as a healing tool.  The sound from Tibetan singing bowls and crystal bowls are well known for their ability to dissolve negativity and clean your energies.  Listening to their sounds before going to sleep is an easy way to support your overall well-being.

Alternately chanting the sound   “Om” is an incredibly fast and efficient way to shift stuck, stagnant or negative energy from your aura and physical body.


Why Empaths Are Emerging En Masse and How They Are Facilitating Global Oneness

By Olga Star | In5D.com

You already may have noticed how many of us are ‘gifted’ with empathetic abilities. It’s a beautiful ability that lets us know how other people feel, it helps us to share the joy on a more profound level, it lets us have insights into other people’s states and adjust our actions accordingly, it helps us to share other people’s pain and ease their emotional burden. People around empaths usually feel better understood. And those who have friends as empaths feel lucky to have them in their lives.

And if you are one of many proud parents to be, chances are very high that your little one will be an empath as well. Empath doesn’t stand for the planetary connection nor does it tell you the origin of your child’s-to-be soul. An empath is an ability or a gift if you like.

Though reincarnated angels and elementals are often referred to as an empath, your little treasure can really be from any realm and any walk of cosmic life, human including!

Why is this happening? We are in the age of ascension when the Earth Seeds and many Star Seeds will be able to evolve even higher as one global consciousnessEmpaths are the links to facilitate oneness. As the newborns are now reincarnating with abilities ignited if you like, they will not need to go through the drama of many previous generations to understand what it means to be a human. They are here to know how others feel and with the knowledge of how we should feel vibrationally and energetically speaking; even though yes, they will still like to go through a human experience yet somewhat on a ‘surface level’. Based on the information they’ll sense, they’ll intuitively try to shift their friends and family member’s vibrations to more appropriate levels.

Think of empaths as connecting tissue, that facilitates oneness. That, in turn, will assist our improved, (even though somewhat infantile), telepathic communication on a global scale.

Empaths are very important in the process of awakening as well as connecting us with each other. As they are able to sense about us sometimes what we don’t quite identify, they are able to gently guide us to a better state even if only by reducing our pain and emotional confusion ever so slightly that we get just enough strength to move on and not to get stuck in our circles of negativity or emotional trauma, no matter how small or big that can be.
