All of our lives we have been living in a world of third-dimensional perceptions. That is, our physical world is real to the eye, to the ear and to the touch. Our five senses pick up information and relay it to the brain in a way that seems actual and authentic.
However, there is a shift occurring in the way our minds understand the world around us. This shift is allowing us to perceive beyond the physical. Perhaps you have noticed changes in yourself already, changes that may include: a deeper desire to connect to the Earth; noticing messages in your dreams; a potentially sudden discontentment in your job or relationships; or becoming aware of as your intuitive insights, suddenly “knowing” things you never knew before.
This shift that all of us on the planet are experiencing is an awakening that encompasses an expansion of the finite understanding of our world as merely physical. Our awareness of ourselves and everything around us is growing to incorporate an understanding that we are all energy beings, connected to everything and everyone.
All of us who are alive on the planet at this time have agreed to this expansion prior to our incarnation. We agreed — on the soul level — to be here at this time to support each other as we awaken. The process of awakening is specifically to fulfill the purpose of our experiment here on earth, which is to remember who we are, in spite of living behind a veil of forgetfulness.
This is an exciting time! The Earth is shifting her energies as well, rebalancing through environmental changes. Think of the extreme weather and natural disasters as the Earth taking a deep breath and stretching her sore, achy muscles. She is reclaiming lost parts of herself. She is releasing and transmuting heavier energies of eons of human negativity and fear. She is healing.
As the Earth goes through this process, she is calling for all of us to do the same. Ultimately, as we transmute our own energies of fear and negativity, we heal her as well.
We are now primed to lift these energies from ourselves and move into a deeper love for ourselves and others on the planet. We are more able now to be open to understand and know the connection we have to each other. We will feel it more than ever before too. In actuality, this is an opening of our heart chakras… a knowing of our own Higher selves. It is through this knowing that we become more and more compassionate towards others.
At the same time, the higher chakras (brow and crown) are opening and activating. We are beginning to see, hear or know that which is beyond the physical. This is our intuition, and it manifests differently for everybody. As these psychic perceptions open, you may find yourself seeing visions in your mind’s eye, or even in the room in front of you. You may find yourself hearing words that you know didn’t come from your own mind. Or you may have a suddenly understanding of something that is about to happen (or did happen), without having any idea why you know.
These extrasensory perceptions are common and inherent in all of us. They are reminders that our energy fields are linked, that we are intrinsically connected to each other and the world around us.
Additionally, we may also feel more of a connection to spiritual beings, such as spirit guides and angels. Every person and animal on the planet has one or more spirit guides. These beings travel with us over many, if not all, lifetimes. Spirit guides hold space as teachers, advisors, and supporters, understanding each person’s soul work: her mission, challenges, obstacles, and path to ascension. Most of the work of the guides and the Divine Self is communicated in the dream state, and manifests while awake.
Angels work with humans on all aspects of Life. The ones that I have dealt with the most in my healing practice are the angels of healing, protection, transformation, prosperity, and emotional distress. Angels work on all levels of creation. Each of us also has a guardian angel that watches over and protects. They have the abilities to heal us mentally, physically and emotionally, soothe our hearts and minds, help us ground, and more. The list of possibilities of what they can offer us is as unlimited as the number of angels in the other dimensions.
(I have had many people ask me about protecting themselves from spirits who seem benevolent but may actually be malevolent. I do agree that being too open may leave us vulnerable to psychic attack. However, we have all the power we need to prevent this from happening! First, be clear with yourself and your spirit guides that you have no interest in that kind of experience. Second, always ask the being present if it is from the Light. State: “Leave if you are not of the Light!” They will go away.)
Our guides and angels are waiting for us to ask them to assist. They are reticent to get involved when we don’t ask, however, because they do not interfere with our free will. They do not assume which experiences we want, and which we do not.
As we move into this expanding awareness of our world, we will begin to find more ease and joy in our daily lives. We will become less attached to negativity and suffering. It will become easier for us to move beyond painful experiences and stay centered in that place of connection and knowing. These changes will occur slowly, over time, strengthening in the coming years, and being more stable in the generations that will follow us.
These experiences signal an awakening to our true selves: grander and wiser than we have known thus far. It is a call to remember why we are here, which is, simply, to remember ourselves as energetic beings, wholly loved and supported by the spiritual world, and the Earth herself. It is a call to wake up to a broader definition of our existence here on this planet, and in so doing, take care of her and each other.
