Taking off our illusion glasses

A great comment came through asking why the big forward momentum energy of 2015 was all a go-go for the first part of January, and then suddenly seemed to stop, reverse or slow down. Mercury retrograde influences aside, whenever we take a leap toward expansion, anything within us that is not in alignment with that leap comes up for healing, transformation or release.

We all took a huge leap as 2015 commenced, which was wonderful, but that doesn't mean it's all smooth sailing with no more pebbles on the road. The main difference now however is, it is time to realise that many of our pebbles are illusions, created by our former beliefs that these pebbles have to exist. Stick with me here while I explain.

Of course we can't go to the bank and say "Hey I'm not paying off my loan, debt is an illusion!" (Well maybe en masse we all could but that's another topic!). We can however open our eyes in a new way to see that in the Source Field of Limitless Potential, which we are all a part of, which is vibrating strongly within us and around us now more than ever, yes lack and debt are an illusion - created by our beliefs and false stories about what is real and not real, possible and not possible.

Or it may be more true to say that our beliefs in the necessity of lack and debt, as just two examples, are an illusion.

It is time to take those illusion glasses off and see what is real, true, available and possible. This all might sound like a bit of unrealistic woo woo if you are struggling in some way (and we all have things we are dealing with). I can say this: I have experienced time and again how my thoughts and beliefs manifest what is and isn't in my life - almost instantly at times. I share a lot of examples in my course Create a Life you Love.

(Please share your stories in the comments below if you have had similar experiences.)

I am by no means pebble free and the illusion glasses are not off entirely, but for all of us the glasses are dissolving. Even for those who had their awakening decades ago, there are always yet more levels of awakening occurring, and it always feels like you are coming out of a fog, entering new territory. 

We are getting some very clear insight now around our personal pebbles, those obstacles, beliefs and patterns that keep coming up. We are moving beyond 'Oh this is why I have that belief" to "Oh wow, that belief is actually a false story I have told myself or been told. It is an untruth, an outright lie!'

We are confronting those aspects within us that have lied to us (and thus this is happening in our society and greater world now too). Where previously we spent time engaging with our issues and sabotaging aspects, asking them: "Where did you come from? Which past life or ancestral line did I inherit you from?", now we will be more inclined to just say: "I don't believe your story anymore. It is not my story. I don't believe you when you say that I can't follow my heart and be supported, or that if I have all I desire I won't be able to cope, or that if I speak my truth I won't be accepted."

The above is true for those issues that you have worked with over and over again. For some people who may not have worked so much with certain issues, it may still be beneficial to first work out why it is there. It is not enough to say 'I don't believe you anymore' if there is still a message to be received from that issue or aspect.

Likewise we are confronting and meeting those brilliant, powerful aspects within us that we have until now not been quite ready to embody and express in as full a way as we will be! As 2014 ended and 2015 rolled in, many of us felt or saw a clear glimpse of our next steps of power and potential. We felt the thrill of what it feels like to move clearly, swiftly and smoothly, and then...bump.

Some of us walked into our first 'and this is what isn't in alignment with that' wave of the year. So, because our new expansion is big, it came with a wave of subconscious residue connected to it. Yet, these waves are washing over us faster than they used to. We don't have the same attachment to our old issues, and we no longer believe their stories as we once did.

And we are motivated forward by our initial surges of clarity and energy that informed us: this is what is possible, this is what awaits you, keep going!

How are you going? Remember to share your stories about how your thoughts and beliefs have in an obvious way created some experience for you whether it was fabulous or challenging.

You do make a difference

As you look out into the world, there are multiple realities existing simultaneously. Don't let the existence of the lower aspects of society and humanity, or even your own self, make you doubt the existence of the higher aspects. When you see the lower end of a see-saw you don't say "See, the see-saw is down, I have trouble believing a higher end even exists. I give up!"

Imagine that you are on that see-saw, with some aspects of you on the lower end, and some on the higher. People think that if they go on the higher end, whether by raising their consciousness or becoming more successful or wealthier or healthier or whatever the case, they are betraying those on the 'lower' end, but the opposite is true when done with integrity. 

By raising your self in a good way, you are doing your bit to raise the whole. You help to bring yourself, and the whole, into greater balance.

People think that one person can't make a difference. Not only can one person make a difference, each aspect that is vibrating at a higher level of consciousness within each person makes a difference - for that individual, and for the collective. x

Going higher...finally!

We've talked about the spiral path a lot in these posts to help explain how even though it may seem we are repeating issues and patterns over again, we are not going round in circles. Rather, we are always going higher, gaining new insights and awareness, and travelling deeper, seeing clearer into more aspects of our hidden selves.

Until recently, this has felt much like a never- ending excavation process with us wondering, when will it end? Well, we have finally broken through into a new space as a collective, allowing us a very new experience with our spiral path. 

We have become experts at going 'deeper', yet the 'going higher' part seemed to have a cap on it. It was as if we could only see or receive so much, but no more. Or it was easy to feel connected for minutes or hours, but not days or weeks. We discovered and remembered many of energy's natural laws - that we are the creators of our reality, that if you can imagine it, it is possible - but it has been a challenge to remain vigilant over subconscious thoughts and beliefs that have ruled the roost for so long, constantly wanting control over our steering wheel.

2015 has brought with it a massive shift. We have received an upgrade unlike any other so far. We have emerged into a higher level of 'the field' than we have had access to before on this grand a scale when it comes to number of people residing in it.

Now, instead of mainly receiving higher and deeper insights into our 'issues', we are receiving lightning-bolt fast, vivid and clear insights into our natural/energetic/spiritual laws and potential. We are finding it easier to have our thoughts and actions be aligned with the truth within our heart and soul - in fact, it is becoming harder to think or act in our old ways.

More and more we will be able to 'get it' and 'see it' and 'feel it' with a greater awareness when it comes to our soul's natural knowing of this higher, greater reality field of limitless possibility that is all around us. Most importantly, we are going to embody more of those things for more of our waking hours, that have been predominantly or even partly only concepts and knowings. They will be integrated, practical aspects of our day to day living experience.

This is happening now. This is what this year is ushering in for those who have 'crossed the bridge'. Crossing the bridge requires travelling light - that is, release your baggage, clean up your energy field and thus life of all that is not in alignment with who you really are. Most of you reading this have done this. If you haven't, there are plenty of tools and facilitators out there to help you to do it.

How are you all today?

What is your Energy saying to you?

Our energy is speaking to us loud and clear this year. Well it always has, only we are now hearing it and feeling it in a stronger way. When energies are super high as they will be from now on in, everything within us and in our lives that is not true to how our souls would like us to be is highlighted, felt more intensely, seen more clearly and often released or changed completely with or without our conscious desire. So, depending on your perspective this can feel totally liberating, or leave you feeling quite dishevelled.

Inner and outer turmoil forces us to ask the questions: What needs to change? What do I need more of? What do I want less of?

We are really being called to be true to our heart and soul this year more than ever. So when you are feeling flat and exhausted it's a good opportunity to ask yourself:

- What is out of balance here? What am I doing too much of? Or too little of? Am I giving out more than I am receiving? You can't be of any use to anyone with an empty cup. Take time to fill yourself with things that nourish you. It can be as simple as having your cup of tea in a really special cup, going outside for 5 minutes, or taking time out to check your inner emails by way of journalling, meditation or some freestyle crayon drawing/painting.

If you find yourself feeling hyper-sensitive or hyper-emotional (not just now but anytime in this coming year), there is a message there for you somewhere:

- Are you holding on to an outdated belief, emotion, perspective, habit etc that is past its expiry date and wants to be let go of asap? It will no longer feel good, a hundred times more than usual.

- Are you feeling something that isn't yours? As sensitives it is easy to 'feel' what someone else is feeling. Sometimes you consciously recognise it isn't your emotion, other times you don't realise, simply feeling more and more drained/irritated/angry without knowing why. We need to take care that we don't take on energy and emotions that don't belong to us. If you aren't sure just say:" If this is not mine please leave" and see it going out to the Universe to be dealt with however appropriately.

- Keep your energy clear. We have water showers but we forget to have energy showers! You can visualise your energy being cleansed, you can smudge with sage, or you can say whatever affirmations feel right for you (link with ideas below). Once you get in the habit of doing this it starts to happen naturally.

We have to be more discerning, with greater boundaries than ever before, when it comes to the energetic environment within us and around us. The analogy I used in my 2015 report was that we have become allergic to that which doesn't serve us. This is just as true for emotional and mental toxins, as it is for environmental toxins.

It is more important than ever that we find ways to stay in a good, high vibrational space, and really pay attention when we are responding in an old pattern kind of way to something.

Here is a post specifically with tips and tools for getting centred and connected.

Tips and tools for getting centred and connected

People often ask for ideas on how to get centred, and feel more connected to their inner guidance. I often include ideas among different posts, but I thought it would be easier to put all the main ones in one place. 

Here are some ideas and tips to use on a daily basis. Choose whatever works and resonates most with you!

You can say any or all of the following. Feel free to tweak words, add to or change to make it feel right for you!

"I am filled with love, surrounded by love, protected by love and guided by love"

Imagine it as you say it. I see a column of light coming from the Source of All, entering me, filling me, expanding out to surround me, protecting me like a big egg, and guiding me. You may see it differently, or choose to see it in a total other way!

"I am connected to my higher self, highest source of truth, love and light, and to the core of Mother Earth." 

I imagine a column of light going up from my centre, up up up to the highest source, and down to the centre of the Earth. You may have your own idea of what the higher source is, or have no conscious definite knowing of what that is - just ask that it be the highest source for you and trust you don't have to consciously know what that is in order for it to happen.

 "I am aligned with my best possible self, best possible reality and best possible movement forward on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, cellular, DNA, ancestral and etheric, and all the chakras."

Again, feel free to add, change, delete anything to make it feel right for you.

"Thank you for my health, thank you for my partner, family, friends, work, income, home...etc" 

 A daily appreciation makes you feel good, reminds you of what you have, and opens the door to that continuing and expanding.

I make all of the above part of my daily meditation. It doesn't have to be a big sit down event (although a sit down meditation is of course more beneficial!). Sometimes I don't make the time to do that, so I just say the above things, kind of like brushing your teeth on the run! It just takes a minute, but it will make a huge difference to how you feel.

Meditation: On the note of meditation, closing your eyes and focusing on your breath as it goes in and out of your nose is one of the best ways I know to clear your mind, get centred and connected. Whether you do it for one minute, ten minutes, half an hour or more is up to you! Highly recommended to do daily, especially if you are feeling frazzled and scattered!

Journalling is one of the best ways I know how to receive guidance from your energy and higher wisdom. Know that you can ask questions and talk to your inner aspects and feelings. Give them names: Angry Anna or Frustrated Fred for example! Trust what comes. At first it will feel like you are making it up, but the more you do it, the more natural it will feel. Saying one or more of the above affirmations first will help to make sure that your guidance comes from a good place that is in alignment with your highest self. (Or you can just say: I ask that any guidance received is in alignment with my highest truth, love, light and potential).

Stay in the Present: When you are in the present, your 'hose' to your highest source is straight as opposed to twisted (which it becomes when we turn our neck to worry about the past or fear the future). You want your 'hose' straight so that all you need comes more easefully to you be it guidance, inspiration, synchronicities, abundance, or something physical you need. Appreciating what is around you throughout the day is brilliant for bringing your focus back to the present moment, as is focusing on your breath when you feel yourself worrying and stressing.

Your thoughts create your reality: Yes they do. Pay attention to how you are feeling. Notice what your thoughts are if you are feeling not great, and adjust your thoughts. Change that inner dialogue so it reflects and acts as if all you want is already here. Turn the channel of your inner movies if they are playing scenes you do not want to live! Read some Abraham-Hicks or Florence Scovel Shinn to really get how simple and powerful our thoughts and feelings are.  We truly do attract, or push away, so much of what is available to us.

Follow those inner nudges: Guidance doesn't usually come in a loud booming voice with a ten step plan! It most often comes in small, inner nudges that may not make logical sense, and may not immediately feel connected to your question. You may feel guided to get in touch with someone you haven't talked to in a while, buy a magazine or newspaper you don't usually get, go to a cafe or the beach. I call these Hansel and Gretel cookie crumbs that end up leading us somewhere we didn't expect. Those are the things that often lead us to our dream home, job or soulmate, in the most unexpected of ways. Bigger nudges include leaving that job, doing that course, taking that trip, having that conversation with your partner. Most of us don't have a problem hearing our intuition. Our issue has been that we ignore and avoid it due to fear or busy-ness, or we don't trust it. Start listening to your self, and following those nudges.

So whether you choose to do all of the above or just one thing, know that there are so many tools available that only require our presence, awareness and attention.

Hope this list of tools has helped!

Love Dana

Surfing the waves...and falling off them

‘Raising your vibration’ isn’t an event that happens to us so much as it is a process and a moment by moment choice. It is something that requires our conscious awareness and vigilance in the initial stages, until more and more it becomes our new normal.

Just like larger waves make it easier for a surfer to ride for a longer time than smaller waves, the high frequency energy waves available to us now are making it easier to ride a higher vibration for longer. (Even if that means minutes instead of seconds, for others it will be days instead of hours).

Just like in the surf, the wave can make it easier for you, but it doesn't do it for you. Just like a surfer uses his or her skill, so too we use all we know to stay on the board: pay attention to how you are feeling, notice what your thoughts are if you are feeling not great, adjust your thoughts, focus on appreciating something, follow your inner nudges instead of ignoring them and so on.

Just like a surfer falls off his or her board sometimes, so do we. Living in a higher vibration is a mental/emotional/energetic space for a long time before it becomes a permanent, "I don't even have to think about it" dwelling place. You'll have your moments of feeling lower-vibrational emotions and thinking old negative-focused thoughts, but you will notice them sooner, and move through them and out of them faster.

When this happens, don't beat yourself up. Just get back on the board, and catch another wave. It gets easier and there are plenty of other surfers around you, seen and unseen, helping you along. x

Time: Super fast and super slow-mo!

Has anyone else noticed a difference with your experience of Time this year? I am having a lot of periods where time feels much more expansive. It feels like we can do a lot more in a shorter period, with sharper clarity and focus. We can feel the joy of doing what we're doing more fully. Yet even though it feels like we are achieving more, it also feels like we are moving at a much more relaxed, stop to smell the roses, going with the flow kind of pace.

This differs to the experience of the last couple of years, where no matter how fast we moved, we still couldn't catch up with time as it sped by every day! This still happens sometimes. It is yet another aspect of this 'all or nothing' phase, where time is either super accelerated, or super slow-mo!!

Mercury Retrograde Shenanigans and Opportunities

What happens when Mercury prepares to go retrograde in a day's time? Well, I just received 20 blank emails for one thing, and didn't receive a whole bunch of other emails that have been sent to me! Mercury loves a bit of computer/technology shenanigans. When you put him in Aquarius, which a) governs technology and b) is ruled by Uranus the planet who loves all things unpredictable, don't be surprised if things like this are happening!

If you are expecting an email or text and you don't receive it - follow up with the person. Likewise if you send something important and don't hear back, follow up.

On the upside, Mercury retrograde periods are fantastic for going back over things that have been left unfinished - contracts, communications, conversations and projects. They open doorways for things that need re-doing and re-viewing. Something or someone from the past can come up for the purpose of finishing unfinished business or re-connecting in a new way.

Mercury Retrograde gets a bad rap but as much as he can be a bit of a trickster with communications, ultimately his job is to ensure that everything is as clear as possible. He says: re-negotiate that contract, re-do that piece of writing, renew that connection, re-visit that project, re-visit that conversation.

Has Mercury Retro paid you a visit yet?

Hi to higher vibrations, and bye bye bridge

Emotionally and energetically, we are in an all or nothing kind of place - and that refers to 2015 not just when there is a solar flare, although they will certainly help the process along!

What this means is, we became accustomed to living within two frequencies simultaneously. We were on a bridge between worlds for a long time. Now however, that bridge while perhaps still there in some form, is no longer there as it used to be - and certainly it is no longer one that we can stay on. It can't hold us, support us or sustain us anymore.

So you will find that you increasingly feel you 'have to' be in a higher vibrational space with your thoughts, perspectives, feelings, what you choose to focus on and believe, what you watch and read, what you eat, what you do and say, what and who you surround yourself with, and so on. You will feel it instantly when you are doing/reading/speaking/acting from a lower vibrational space/perspective.

This doesn't mean you can't read about certain topics or eat certain foods. It is all about what feels right FOR YOU. It is about how you feel about something when you are reading about it, eating it, or doing it. Happiness, joy, empowerment and freedom are among our soul's natural states of being, and we are all being called to live in those states. Not in a 'head in the sand/denial' kind of way, but in a 'when my head, heart and soul are clear, I can see clearly, respond clearly, act clearly' kind of way.

There is SO much to say on these new energies, and I have plenty of new energy messages pouring out faster than I can type and post.

How are you all feeling?

Pink Flowers!

So today I was at the shop and passed a florist. The colourful bunches of flowers really jumped out at me, especially the pink bunch. I had a feeling I wanted to see what I could manifest and thought to myself "I would really love the experience of someone buying me a bunch of flowers today."

I had no attachment to this happening, no agenda as to who or how (Christian god love him doesn't come home with random flowers), and pretty much forgot about it straight away. I did have a genuine appreciation for how the pink flowers looked and felt. Well guess what Christian came home with today!!!!!!!! 

I guess I can't say he doesn't come home with random flowers anymore!

Whether it's manifesting, telepathy or a psychic nudge on his part, this is how the higher vibrations work....clearly and quickly! Especially when there is no resistance, attachment, agenda etc.

Now, that million dollars would be lovely to receive right now too! 😎

Share your manifesting and synchronicity stories here!

How did the written Soul Sessions start?

If you have been thinking of booking a Soul Session I have 5 spaces left in January. Please book here.

I nearly fell off my chair the other day, writing to someone that I've been doing Sessions since 1995 - which means 20 years this year!! To this day I never cease to be amazed and humbled by how it works.

They have evolved over time, starting out with tarot which was fantastic for developing my intuitive muscle. One of my mum's friends asked me to do a reading for her. We did the spread, and it started: the tap of words just started flowing.

 After some time of reading for friends, family then eventually clients, I was no longer looking at the cards and let them go completely because I was tired of people asking "What does that card mean?" Then my mum encouraged me to get people up onto the healing table so I could hold my hands over their energy field and read that way. "I can't do that!" I said. Well, turns out I could.

Technology eventually came along, and in person sessions expanded to Skype. One day I replied to someone by email, and wooshka out came a downloaded written session!

When I tune in, I am receiving the information directly from your energy field and higher consciousness, so there is no need for in person/phone etc contact. In fact, having done in person for many years prior I find the written sessions allow a different kind of excavation to happen as the mind (on either of our parts) isn't as engaged when I'm typing away vs when we are both talking. 

The sessions are a combination of an initial written download (an hour's worth for the full session) as received by me from your energy, plus a follow up reply portion where we discuss via email what has come up. You will be given some sort of 'homework' to take forward with you be it questions to ask yourself during meditation or journalling, practical action steps to take, guidance regarding emotional inner shifts that are ready to happen (and how to do that) - each session is unique according to your Soul needs at this time.

False flags and such

Thank you to recent commenters bringing up the topic of what goes on behind the scenes of our society. You are really giving me some food for thought here - not regarding the topics of which I am aware, but regarding why I don't write about them often or in depth.

I used to write about the political side of things, what the elite were up to etc, all the time until about 10 years ago, and had a radio show called TruthSeeker. The more I got into writing about energy, the less I wrote about them as my focus seemed to always want to naturally gravitate toward focusing on what we wanted to create, vs fighting the old. I know it's a fine balance between this approach and sticking ones head in the sand, and hopefully I wasn't doing the latter, but I felt there were so many other researchers doing brilliant jobs of exposing everything week after week so I let that part of my 'cv' go.

Perhaps it is time to integrate these two parts of me in my public writings, as the elite goings on are very much a part of my day to day personal life awareness and research. I have always just been wary of labelling something as a false flag for example unless I know 100% for sure, but here I am now thinking well, why not at least talk about it as a topic to broaden people's awarenesss who may not be aware of that side of things at all? I know that I really didn't want to have to confront all the comments that come with bringing these topics up, yet ha here I am confronting comments for not bringing them up!

Time for some more self-inquiry on this.

Regardless of what I write about, your comments are always welcome as long as they are respectful. I am happy to say that comments on my blog and social media pages always are, and I appreciate that. Every perspective can't ever be covered in any one blog post, and differing comments give us all the opportunity to expand our thoughts and perspectives.  I particularly liked a comment last week when I wrote about the great energy of the new year, and someone had the courage to say they felt pretty crappy! That opened up the doorway for a whole new post and hundreds of commenters saying they felt like that too, making that original person, and all the people, feel less alone and feel less like something was wrong with just them.

Thank you all for your past and future contributions via your likes and comments and sharing of information.

Love Dana x

2015 Energy Report

2015 Energy Report 
Written Version below. 

Video version includes extra Commentary 

This is by far the most complex energy report I have written in the 8 years of writing them.  In previous years it has been much easier to tune in to our overall collective energy. The wave of ‘awake souls’ were all going through similar processes, the ‘old reality society’ was trucking along relatively predictably, while the elite was trying to hold onto its power structure wherever it felt vulnerable.
            Now however when sitting down to write this, instead of feeling the energy of very distinct groups, I get the vision of billions of ants on a timeline along with the corresponding billions of vibrations!  Some are moving forward with purpose, carrying supplies on their backs, very clear on what they need to do next. Others are stuck in a traffic jam, not able to go back, but not yet knowing quite how to move forward or in some cases it is simply not yet time. Some are moving back and forth between realities, spending time in the new, dropping back into the old, then recharging in the new again. 
Others are reclining in a hammock over the bridge (will talk about the bridge later on in this report), feeling retired from worker bee/light ‘worker’ life, ready for what their new retirement phase brings them. Much like the life of any worker, the retirement phase for many of you in this category will be busier in a good way if you want that, more restful and flowing, more fun and fulfilling than your preceding years.
            With time being what it is these days (accelerated and increasingly irrelevant), you may find yourself resonating with one of the above groups one minute, and then thrust into another the next. As I always say, our evolutionary journey is a spiral not a straight line. This concept seems to be on fast forward right now. So your pathway may feel more like a dizzy rollercoaster as you go higher and deeper, higher and deeper, faster and faster!
            That said – see, it’s a complex and contradictory report! – it is getting easier to cruise along in neutral, feeling centred, taking a philosophical approach to whatever is going on around us and within us. It is emotionally exhausting to flip from high high’s to low low’s constantly, and so I highly encourage you to shift to your centre as often as possible, especially when it all feels a bit much.

 You can do this by:

-          Focusing on your breath, deeply inhaling and exhaling

-          Spending a few minutes in meditation, just closing your eyes and letting thoughts go

-          Consciously moving up the scale of emotions along the lines of the Abraham Hicks teachings. That is, if you feel angry, change your focus to ask yourself what is it you are so passionate about that is triggering you? If you feel yourself focusing on what you are lacking, think of something in your life that you appreciate

With energetic and emotional sensitivity at an all-time high, and increasing daily, you will feel your current vibrational GPS location more acutely. When you are thinking and acting in alignment with your heart and soul, you will feel greater clarity, increased calm, more joy, deeper appreciation and gratitude – regardless of external circumstances. Life takes on a magical feel, with synchronicities and responses to your divine requests happening rapidly. Even in the moments where you feel sad, when aligned you will also feel the immense presence of love within you and all around you, supporting you forward.
When your thoughts and actions are going against the grain of your heart and soul, instead of feeling love amidst any sadness, you tend to more feel the unbearable separation of loss.  Any heart heaviness feels extra suffocating. The body tenses up, adrenals go into overdrive, physical health issues manifest and stress levels skyrocket.
Our acute sensitivity is one reason why many people are finding these times extremely difficult on a physical body and emotional level. Once upon a time we could get away with thinking sabotaging thoughts. Well, on a soul level we weren’t really getting away with anything, but physically and emotionally our thoughts didn’t catch up with us at the speed with which they are now. We could (kind of) get away with a job or relationship that wasn’t right for us. Now, we no longer have that indulgence.
Our evolutionary impulse is to grow. We are all like beacons set to a timer that has gone off, alerting our energy that it is grow time. Anything not in alignment with who we really are, will come up for transformation or release, you can count on it. It used to come up in a subtle way, and the process once upon a time took years (lifetimes even). Now, it is direct, in your face, and when we insist on not paying attention or ignoring the signs to evolve, the process will be downright painful because sometimes that is the only thing that will get our attention!
Many of you have released and released until it feels there can surely be nothing left. And when it comes to the past, yes you may have released the bulk of it in which case congratulations! You may even have graduated from the Karmic wheel, woohoo! Yet, our souls are calling for nothing less than absolute impeccability, authenticity and integrity in this new cycle. Our souls are calling now for the embodiment, in the physical, of our highest truth, knowing and consciousness. How are your thoughts in each moment of every day? How are your actions? Are you following through with your soul’s inner nudges when it comes to your daily goings on? These days, when you are in alignment with your soul nothing feels better. And these days, when you are out of alignment nothing feels worse.
The good thing about these new energies is: it is easier to be in alignment than out of it. Good feelings and thoughts are natural to our soul, and the more access we have to this higher frequency energy that is now available to us in this new cycle, the more naturally we gravitate to BEING who we really are. Look at the responses to recent events like the Sydney Lindt Café hostage situation*, and the Paris cartoonists murders*. In the wake of each of these events, it created a grassroots uprising of positive intention with the respective #illridewithyou and #jesuischarlie tags. Where years ago the primary response would have been anger, as well as fear, the primary responses with these events have been a desire for unity, connection and peace.  What a telling confirmation of where the mainstream collective is at now, compared to five or ten years ago.

*Yes I know that much of what we are seeing now are false flag events orchestrated by TPTB. There is plenty of info out there if you want to read about things from that angle in more detail. While I provide social commentary on certain events and issues as I am passionate about the truth coming out, my primary job is to focus on things from an energetic perspective. It is what most naturally flows through me when I write. I welcome comments and discussion however if you have information to share as people can only benefit from having access to all the angles involved at this critical time.  

Evolutionary Cycle Overview
We have emerged from a very challenging yet deeply consciousness-expanding two year period, with 2013-14 feeling to have been a transition point between two major transitional periods.
            Evolutionary cycles are cycles within cycles within cycles, each marking significant transformational and turning points for planets, for life, for growth, for the Energy Collective of which we are all a part. One of the most recent cycles within a cycle was the 25 year period starting from Harmonic Convergence 16-17 August 1987, through to 21 December 2012. 
Multiple wisdom traditions and prophecies including the Tibetan Kalachakra, the Mayan and Aztec Calendars, and the Cherokee Calendar Wheel, all calculated periods of time that converged on 16-17 August 1987.
All spoke of a 25 year period from that date, seen as a Purification, Transitional or Crossroads Time between ‘Worlds’, culminating at the end of 2012. They all used their own words and language, yet all foresaw a new ‘world’ emerging after this time.
Take a moment to think about the profoundness of this for a moment. Different people from different cultures from different time periods, were all pointing to the same period of time hundreds, in some cases thousands of years into their future. All of them shared a similar message about what this time would mean for Earth and all beings living on her.
A Mayan elder explained to us that ‘new world’ in the context of the prophecies refers to ‘new cycle’.  Cycles and transitional times generally don’t start or end with a bang, (although there are many collectively-generated global/community meditations and events created to honour these important dates) – and if we look for naturally occurring monumental events on those specific days as proof that a new cycle has started or finished, we will likely be disappointed. The dates mark gateways and doorways, ushering in new energies and opportunities, leaving behind the old.
We are living in the midst of the great shift right now, and we don’t often realise how profoundly reality is changing when we are in the middle of change. It is only in hindsight that we say “Oh wow, look at how everything has changed!” 
More people are awake now seeking to remember who they are and live how they came here to live. More like-minds are gathering online and in the streets, dismantling the old and standing up for truth, peace, equality and fairness. This is creating momentum, and we are creating a new reality here on Earth for future generations. 
This is not to say that a monumental event won’t happen at some point. Too many of us can feel something big up ahead for it not to happen. However, no-one can say what it is for sure, and no-one can give a date.
I think the biggest global perspective shift will come when we know we are not alone in this universe. While that perspective shift has happened already for millions around the world, there is still this inner knowing that the ‘big thing’ we all came here to be a part of hasn’t quite unfolded yet.
We don’t need to wait for any big event in order to create change – we can view it as an added bonus that may come along to give us a big powerful booster shot of evolutionary assistance. In the meantime we are continually receiving plenty of mini booster shots in the form of solar flares, incoming high frequency energy and astrological formations which I and other writers cover regularly.

The time of 16-17 August 1987 through to 21 December 2012, marked a period of time during which many ‘First Wave’ and ‘Second Wave’ starseeds/souls (as named by Dolores Cannon among others) experienced their awakening, and/or remembered ‘Phase 1’ of their purpose which for many has predominantly been about:

-          Helping awaken as many as possible ‘by a certain time’
-          Assisting people to get over the bridge ‘by a certain time’
(Many of us received the above inner knowings, even before consciously realising what the bridge was, where it was going to or from, or when the ‘certain time’ actually was!)
-          Raising the vibration here, whether simply by your presence and natural day to day energetic offering, or by being actively called into a healing/service-oriented role
-          Grounding the incoming high frequency energy that was coming in increasing amounts during this 25 year time period. Acting kind of like receiving rods for the light
-          Helping others understand what was going on when it started to become obvious ‘something ’ was going on

During this time period, many ‘Third Wave’ starseeds/souls were able to be born, ready to step into leadership roles for our emerging New World.  They have arrived knowing who they are, and quite rightly, will not take direction from an outdated system. They are here to show us a new way of living and being, and have come armed with practical knowledge, skills and talents.
            The end of 2012 came and went without a bang, leaving many feeling disappointed and disillusioned. Yet around us personally and globally the signs were everywhere that things were shifting, and that people were awakening. From the higher perspective, things were and are on track. From a human perspective, it felt like things couldn’t have been going more slowly!

The past two years feel a lot easier to understand from the perspective of Now, with 2015 ushering in a completely new energy.  
For those who had the set mission to ‘get as many people as possible over the bridge’ it feels like we now have greater access to the other side of that bridge and you may find yourself wanting to spend more time on this side, as opposed to hanging out bridge side.
For some, hanging out on the bridge is no longer an option. Being connected to the bridge as we were, we were able to tap into dual realities: the denser 3D and the higher 5D.  Initially this was okay, however the more that time went on, the harder it was to maintain that connection with the denser reality. Our bodies increasingly reacted with physical symptoms whenever we veered too much into old reality paradigms, thoughts and actions. Yet, it wasn’t yet time to completely let go and jump with all our bodies into a new paradigm.
2013-14 was a strange in limbo void time in many ways, for many of us in the above category. Our old contracts were over, expiring at the end of 2012. However our new paths were not fully ready yet. It was kind of like having our nose pressed up against the glass of the new reality, while behind us the bridge’s conveyor belt kept moving, bunching up a multitude of old issues that we thought had long ago ceased to be relevant for us.
I wrote about the process of being ‘squeezified and juicified’ a year ago. This is how this time has felt, refining us and refining us, clearing out any last remnants of old ways of being prior to our shift into a new phase.  You may have felt yourself regressing with issues from 10-15 years ago, or that corresponded to a time during or prior to your initial awakening. The message coming through is that during the 1987-2012 cycle, once we had dealt with many of our personal issues, we were allowed to spend the remainder of that cycle primarily helping others. So for many years up until 2012 you may have felt “Woohoo, I’ve graduated, my job is just now to help others and wait for the new reality to roll along!”
However what happened is post 2012 we ended up in this strange ‘transition’ time, where the expiring old reality was bumping up against the emerging new one – with us feeling a tad squashed in between. As we bunkered down among the folds of time squashing up around us, we were confronted by remnants of every issue we had ever had. As hard as this was to endure, it ensured that once we finally popped out the other side – as we have now – we would emerge as clean and clear as possible without old baggage.

For some people, the energy of 2015 feels like we are being shot like rockets into completely new territory, moving further in just a few days than it feels we have moved in the past two years!
For those who have felt their noses nudged up against the glass wall of a new reality, something most definitely changed when we stepped across into January 1 2015. It feels like suddenly we have greater access to a new field. Picture a gigantic meadow that we can’t see the end of. Potential is limitless here, our connection to our higher consciousness is greater and more clear here. We feel lighter here. It is really hard to think old thoughts here. It feels foreign to judge people here. Old issues feel like they are irrelevant here.  Old and new dreams suddenly feel more possible here. Connections and synchronicities happen more frequently here. Manifesting with your thoughts and energy is the norm here.
If you are yet to experience this new field, you will soon. It is here and available.  It is not so much what we need to do to open up to it, it is more that we need to stop doing what we do that closes us off from it! Old negative thoughts, worries and doubts take us out of our centre and eject us from this higher vibration. Focusing on your breath, focusing on what you appreciate and doing what you love with those you love gets your mind out of the way, helping you to ‘let in’ this field that is already all around you and within you.
Where delays and procrastination have seemed the name of the game for all too long, the last few days of 2014 had a strong 'hurry up and clean house' energy on every level. I found myself re-organising rooms, putting things in storage, and cleaning like crazy! Others have reported feeling the need to shed and let go of old attachments and other manifestations of old energy once and for all in those last days.
Now, on one hand this is normal for the lead up to NYE. What felt different however was the push behind the releasing, and that was this massively increased READINESS for the new. Actually, readiness aside, it is more like a timer went off and after some years of feeling a kind of in limbo energy we were all told that it was finally GREEN GO TIME!
As we know, clearing out the old - whether physically, mentally, emotionally or energetically - creates space for the new, and sure enough with January 1 came new clarity, new energy, and a new forward momentum around who we really are, what we came here to do, and what we want to create at this time in our lives. This has come by way of intuitive nudges, clear visions, external messages, and inspired action steps that are piece by piece guiding the way forward. This push forward will continue all year, and if it hasn't started yet for you then say: "I am ready to move forward, show me the way."
‘Push’ feels like the wrong word to use, because the experience feels much more organic and flowing than the masculine-style of ‘push’ we are used to. We are being pushed along as a river pushes along a leaf, being taken to where we need to go, and encountering synchronicities when we need them. Our guidance will come from the heart, and we will feel compelled to live with authenticity and integrity to a greater degree than ever before.
The thing with this year though is we have to actually step forward. We need to take action when guided. We need to follow through when we get that strong feeling to start doing this, or stop doing that. It is time to show up for our selves, for our dreams, and for the reality we are here to create.
The clarity we are receiving isn't coming in the form of a detailed manual explaining your purpose  It is coming by way of those inner nudges and external reminders that are repeating strong messages to us on a daily basis.
Some of you feel more crappy than happy in this New Year. I want to talk about that because when one is feeling low, happiness and all this talk about 'forward momentum' can make you feel even lower, isolated and questioning what is 'wrong' with you.
It takes a lot of courage to feel ones feelings, and to express them. Nothing is wrong with having feelings, no matter what they are. Feelings are messengers. We can talk to them, and receive guidance from them. Journal with Doubting Dave, Sad Sarah, or Unmotivated Uma. You will surprise yourself with what comes through.
Many sensitive, awake people are so attuned on an inner level to energy that it is easy to feel down more than up at times. Feelings are felt more acutely - not just ours, but those of the collective. We are also finely tuned to what our reality on a higher dimension is like, and so anything involving a lower density - fears, doubts, worries, feeling not good enough etc - is absolutely suffocating. Especially now. Especially as we enter more and more higher vibrational energy here on Earth.
Remember the downs will feel denser and denser, while the ups will feel lighter and lighter. I am not one to discount anyone’s feelings, you are entitled to feel what you feel. However, be discerning and know that our soul priority right now is on our alignment. Our soul’s natural energy is of a higher, not lower, vibration, and so this tells us that our natural tendency is to feel good rather than not. If you are feeling not good more than good, pay attention to what is going on within you or around you. Think of it this way: we are allergic now to that which is toxic for us. This means we are being called to change many of our lifestyle habits from what we view on television, what we browse online, what we eat and drink, who we associate with, and what we do with our days. We are similarly allergic to old thought patterns. They can literally make us sick – emotionally and physically.
Are you genuinely needing to feel/express a lower vibrational emotion? If so, try to find a healthy outlet for it. Journal. Artwork it out. See a healing practitioner if it is ongoing/regular. Or are you stuck in an emotional habit, feeling the energy of the collective, or feeling someone’s energy you picked up at work or at the store that day? It sounds like a cliche, but I highly recommend starting either a daily Happiness Jar or Gratitude Journal. It gets you on the 'upswing' at least once every 24 hours, rather than sinking in the down.
Just know everyone has their moments, and I try to honestly share about the downs as well as the ups yet I will keep on urging you – as I am urged by upstairs – to keep your vibrations high this year.  We have not had a year like this yet.  We have access to a new frequency, and it feels like this is just the beginning of what is a very, very wide field of new consciousness. Manifesting will happen faster so again, it is imperative that you pay attention to your thoughts!
We will see more false flag events as the old elite attempt to keep us dumbed down, distracted and in fear, yet the heartening thing is: it isn’t working. People are waking up, they are seeing information online or having it come to them, hearts are opening and the masses aren’t quite so quick to believe something just because it comes from the media or government – actually it’s quite the opposite!
The truth is being revealed and while they are doing all they can to keep covering it, a momentum among humanity is rocking and rolling. PLEASE keep focusing on that. Continue to have hope and faith in your brothers and sisters on this planet that those who are yet to awaken will, and that those who are awake are doing all they can – even simply by our presence and awareness as a minimum - to ensure humanity live with freedom and empowerment, as every being is entitled to by divine law. We did not come here this time to have this story repeat itself for another cycle!

On a quick numerological note, 2015 sees us enter a Number 8 year. Interestingly enough, the Chinese Year of the Goat/Ram/Sheep starting Feb 19 is also associated with the number 8, being the 8th sign in the Chinese wheel. 
An 8 year is associated with prosperity, success, power and good fortune. Yet it comes with the caveat: be careful what you ask for, you just might get it! If we have learned anything from the past it is this: power used without consciousness can result in destruction. We have also learned that consciousness without action can feel physically frustrating. Now is the time for us to combine our consciousness with action, and our action with consciousness.
It is time to get clear with ourselves as to what defines wealth and success for us personally? It used to be that people would instantly think of material things, and there is nothing wrong with the material, but ensure that you build any physical wealth on a foundation that is emotionally and spiritually wealthy and healthy for you. Ensure your true soul priorities are met - vibrant health, a happy family and/or great friends, a loving relationship, a peaceful society.....add to the list!

Keep on trucking this year, we are all in this together!
