Opening the Portal: Effects of the New Energy Shift

Opening the Portal: Effects of the New Energy Shift

Right now we are all Homo sapiens (meaning “wise man” or “knowing man”), so named because we have language and the ability to reason abstractly and solve problems. The human brain mirrors the duality of the universe because it is both logical (left brain) and creative (right brain). The empowering shift will enable us to integrate the left and right sides of our brain to act in unison, which will better equip us to tap into the collective consciousness.

The new energy waves that will bring about this empowering shift and finally “conceive” the new man — Homo sentient — will commence sometime during 2012. As you read this book, you may find that information you once thought of as esoteric mumbo-jumbo now resonates deeply with you. This means you are ready to make that giant leap forward. It is like going from crawling to walking to running in the space of a day.

The energy waves coming through the open portal in the Milky Way will uplift and refine us and put us on the fast track to ascending and evolving as a species. We are shifting out of the Piscean age, the age of religion, and moving into the Aquarian age, which will be characterized by advanced scientific breakthroughs, spiritual awakening, and the triumph of the ultimate technology, our own psychic senses.

Will You Be Affected by the New Energy?

Aren’t psychic abilities confined to a select group of gifted people? you may well ask. The short answer is no. The new energy will activate additional strands found in everyone’s DNA. It will be like suddenly and automatically knowing how to use all the apps and commands on your smart phone while getting free, enhanced upgrades. You might say that we will be downloading our multidimensional psychic “apps” and thereby becoming better connected with the entire universe.

Everyone is being affected by the new energy coming in. Even people who don’t necessarily seem open to advanced consciousness are, albeit on a very subtle level, now being awakened to the shift in cosmic energy. By way of an example, one day I was standing in line at a local store waiting to return an item. The person in front of me was giving the cashier a hard time concerning an exchange he wanted to make. I overheard the cashier tell the irate customer that she “didn’t like his energy.” Even the little old lady in charge of returns was savvy enough to recognize the importance and omnipresence of energy.

Learning How to Live Consciously and Mindfully

Opening the Portal: Effects of the New Energy ShiftIt is all about energy: our introduction to it, our response to it, and our awareness that it is and always has been our core component. The fact that we are privileged enough to be living during this time also means that we will need to learn how to live consciously and mindfully. This is especially true because we will also become more extrasensory and aware of the energy we are sending out and receiving, psychically speaking.

Speaking more personally, you will realize that your creative abilities, the ones you have probably been using unconsciously for years, are now more potent than ever. Your thoughts will also manifest — be made into reality — at a much quicker rate, which will force you to carefully and mindfully consider the quality of those thoughts, or of thought energy. Staying grounded and in the moment is of utmost importance during this time. It is all about living consciously and mindfully.

We are dormant creative power plants that are on the verge of being woken up. Once we begin to realize that things don’t happen to us, but rather because of us, we will become much more vigilant regarding our thoughts and intentions.

To Which Degree Will You Experience the Energy Shift?

I have had numerous clients tell me about their out-of-body experiences (OBEs), weird synchronicities, lucid dreams, and sharpened instincts when it comes to healing their own bodies. Some have even inadvertently frightened themselves by crossing beyond the veil that separates the material world from the energetic world and communicated with deceased loved ones, interdimensional beings, and spirit guides. What they don’t know is that all of these experiences are normal and even necessary if we are to evolve as a species. We need to adapt to this new environment, all the more so because the planet itself will be changing due to its point within the galaxy.

The degree to which each person experiences the energy shift all depends on his or her stage of spiritual evolution and how open he or she is to the idea and the process of change. In order to thrive under these new circumstances we must accept the fact that everything changes as it evolves. For example, not too long ago the idea of the telephone seemed far-fetched; now, however, because of our many advancements in technology, the standard land-line phone seems obsolete and even silly when compared to computers and smart phones. Wait until our telepathic abilities become fully charged as a result of our expanded consciousness — goodbye, cell phone contracts! We will be the next upgrade in the communications field.

Mind Over Matter?

Some people are under the impression that the shift into a higher consciousness means that the material world will disappear. That’s simply untrue. As we evolve and become more attuned to the “light” energy of our thoughts as opposed to the “heavy” energy of the material world, the material world will simply become less significant.

Just because we are becoming more energetic doesn’t mean that we will lose our physical bodies; rather, we will have a more complete understanding of how our thoughts are responsible for shaping both our bodies and the world in which we live.
