“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. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” ~ Nikola Tesla
Spaceweather has just reported that on May 22, Earth-orbiting satellites recorded approximately 12 B-class solar flares erupting from a spot on the sun.
Currently, the crackling sunspot is slightly hidden on the eastern limb of the sun, however solar rotation will reveal its activity over the next couple of days, so we will have a clearer view of any stronger explosions.
Along with the solar flares, we are also passing through a stream of high-speed solar wind that is flowing from a northern hole on the sun. This gaseous wind is travelling at speeds close to 500 km per second, and will be causing a geomagnetic disturbance.
We are also being hit by masses of Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR), which travel at high speed and hold tremendous energy. This nuclei bombards and penetrates Earth’s magnetic field, especially during the solar minimum phase of the solar cycle, which we are experiencing now. These supercharged particles consist of every element and are fully ionised, so they interact with, and influence, magnetic fields—our own, and the one surrounding our planet.
Although we are somewhat protected by Earth’s magnetic field, the intense, highly charged energy is still believed to have a major effect on everything that exists on Earth. Solar energy can greatly impact anything from emotions to electrical devices.
Solar storms are known to have a huge impact on radio communications, navigation/GPS systems, technology, and living organisms, and have been shown to change blood flow, boost adrenaline, and affect blood pressure. It also affects our sleep patterns.
Research has found that geomagnetic storms can also have a huge effect on our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health. Increased anxiety, depression, fatigue, nervousness, and peaks in bipolar disorder have been found to coincide with solar activity.
Since the start of 2018, many of us will have noticed that the energy surrounding us has been wildly intense, and has constantly chopped and changed, causing us to feel calm and settled one minute and irritable, impatient, fatigued, angry, or full of anxiety the next.
Universal energy is known to have a direct impact on our personal and our collective ascension, so it is likely that we’ve already been going through major individual transformation—and noticing the world around us is swiftly changing too.
One of the most significant ways we become aware of this is through the realisation that we are all energy.
The entire universe is made up of energy, and everything is connected; therefore, something occurring on one side of the world can simultaneously occur, or affect, someone or something on the other. We often see this when a major tragedy takes place and we feel a sudden wave of sadness or grief, and it is not until we hear the news that we are able to connect why we felt that way at exactly that time. Or, we may read stories from people we have never met that mirror our own, despite the unique and detailed circumstances.
When this happens, it becomes more clear that our intuition is enhanced and that great shifts are taking place for humanity. The reason for this is that our vibration is rising and we are all ascending toward a new state of being—where there is no separation (a concept known as oneness)—at a faster rate than ever before.
Quantum physics has proved that our reality is made of energy, whether visible or invisible, and energy shifts occur when change jolts us from our old way of existing into a new reality. In this new reality, we are more awakened and aware of our own existence, and we are able to sense the energy of everything that is around us to a greater degree.
Energy shifts take place frequently, and we experience them through planetary alignments, moon phases, comets, meteor showers, star gates, eclipses, and extreme weather events; however, the majority of ascension energy comes directly from the sun, due to solar flares, galactic wind, and geomagnetic storms that are known to influence us at a cellular level. On Earth, we have always been susceptible to highly charged energy from the sun; however, the effects are magnified once our awareness to it is heightened and we attune our energy to the incoming solar frequencies.
We may also go through intense energy shifts when we experience a traumatic break up, grief due to the loss of someone close to us, a natural disaster, or any tragic and devastating event.
During galactic disturbances, many people notice physical symptoms occurring, which may be in the form of body aches and pains, headaches, throat issues, flu-like symptoms, ears ringing, dizziness, and generally feeling as though the body, mind, and spirit are out of sync. Some non-physical signs are vivid and realistic dreams and nightmares, regular synchronicities, déjà vu, and disturbed sleep patterns. We might also experience unexplained anxiety, moodiness, emotional highs and lows, irrational fear, and time appearing to go too slow or too fast. This can be alarming at first, but it is simply due to the speed at which we are ascending, leaving us feeling unaligned as our physical and spiritual bodies take time to readjust.
We may also notice that we feel triggered more than normal, and feel compelled to react, quite irrationally at times, to other people’s behaviours and the circumstances we find ourselves in.
The more we are mindful and aware of the present moment, the less this will happen—our core wounds are vying for attention as we heal painful past experiences. As we come to realise this, we will be less inclined to let our wounds lead us and communicate in highly emotional ways, and we will be far more likely to express ourselves with love, forgiveness, compassion, and understanding.
One of the most frustrating aspects of becoming more awakened is looking around at the state of the world we live in and feeling disappointed, disillusioned, and saddened by what we see. Once we have opened our eyes to the reality of life on Earth, it can be challenging to continue onward, feeling peaceful and fulfilled, knowing there is so much chaos and suffering.
The hardest part is that we can see how possible it is to create a more equal, harmonious existence for all living beings, and that our current systems seem only to sustain poverty, abuse, war, homelessness, and fear—despite having enough resources to change it.
When we go through major energy shifts, our energy vibrates faster and we move up what are known as “dimensions.”
When we ascend from the third dimension, where the ego is in control, and move toward the fourth or fifth dimension, where we operate from the heart center, we may feel guilt and sorrow that we are shifting toward a new and more blissful state of being, while millions of others appear to be left behind, without the tools, knowledge, or basic survival needs to have a decent quality of life.
There are people without food and shelter, and who live in terrifying circumstances, who aren’t currently able to transcend to a life free from suffering.
Although this will not immediately solve the problems of the world, this is sometimes the only option we have: “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” (A quote often misattributed to Gandhi.)
Both personal and mass shifting takes time, and as each one of us alters the way we think, believe, and act, our energy vibrates differently and will begin to have an impact on those around us. Although we may believe that we are small and insignificant, as each individual frequency heightens, the frequency of the world also heightens.
Though it is not easy to be patient and it is not always clear to see, the human race is going through a mass awakening and many of us are now unwilling to put up with the old, outdated systems and are questioning, challenging, and altering the status quo.
As we break away from old patterns of behaviour, we may find that many long-standing friendships and relationships fall apart. When we go through an energy shift, our vibration heightens, so we spin on a different frequency to those who are not open to ascension. This means we may no longer share the same values or resonate with those we were once close to.
Energy shifts can be felt in one, a few, or all of the seven major chakras, and we will notice a vibrating or spinning sensation, or an open, flowing feeling as each chakra area becomes activated.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms that we are experiencing energy shifts/ascension:
>> Searching for deeper meaning and purpose
>> Feeling unconditional love and compassion toward all living beings
>> Spending more time alone
>> Temporary or total loss of some memories
>> Feeling disconnected to the way society functions, while also recognising that there is an unbreakable connection through energy
>> Increased sensitivity and enhanced intuition
>> Knowing things without knowing how or why, and trusting that inner knowing
>> Visions, premonitions, and the ability to predict future events, or knowing instantly when there is great unrest, whether with a loved one, or somewhere in the world
>> Downloads of wisdom and insight
>> Noticing repeated number sequences
>> Walking away from drama, negativity, and conflict
>> Reoccurring and realistic dreams, lucid dreams, and the ability to astral travel
>> Understanding that thoughts create our reality, and the ability to manifest
>> Faith in our unique journey, understanding our reason for existence, and unwavering trust in the universe
>> Change in diet with the desire to eat clean, fresh, high vibrational foods, and to refrain from consuming processed products
>> Feeling nausea, dizziness, spaced out, and noticing ringing in the ears
>> Hearing certain sounds that others can’t hear, such as voices, music, buzzing, or banging
>> Disrupted sleep, and waking at the same time every night, usually between 2:00 to 4:00 a.m.
>> Periods of extreme fatigue and exhaustion
>> Pressure at the crown chakra and tension headaches
>> Sudden waves of extreme heat or cold flushing through the body
>> Losing things, forgetfulness, memory loss
>> An increased love and appreciation for nature and animals
>> Feeling a profound connection to all living beings, even through long distance
>> No longer needing to force anything, allowing what flows to flow freely and letting what doesn’t flow fall away
>> A desire to purge, detox, and declutter
>> Loving and giving without expecting anything in return
>> Noticing patterns of behaviour and altering how we react and respond
>> Becoming aware that old wounds are healing
>> Only having a few close friends, as the desire to connect meaningfully or not at all grows stronger
>> The desire to find our soul purpose and to serve by helping create a healthier, more compassionate world for all living beings to harmoniously co-exist in.
>> Connecting with those known as a “soul group” or “soul family.” (These people are kindred beings who share similar languages, experiences, and ways of perceiving the world. When we meet one of these people there is a feeling as though we have known them before, maybe from a past lifetime.)
Energy shifts can feel volatile, and during this period, our minds and bodies can feel like they have temporarily “shut down.”
However, when we slow down, we are in a far better position to receive energetic downloads and DNA activations that help our vibration shift to a higher dimension. This is similar to the “ascension flu” that occurs when someone is going through an intense awakening period and their body is transcending from a physical to a “light body.”
During intensive energy shifts, it is highly recommended to regularly cleanse our energy field at the beginning and end of each day by meditating, taking salt water baths, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, reducing the amount of time spent on technology, staying away from environments that feel toxic and draining, and when possible, spending time alone.
