Why Raising Your Consciousness Can Be Painful

Fifth Dimension Energy Shifts: Raising your Consciousness

We can raise our consciousness like we might raise a newborn child. Love is the most connective of all emotions and thus love raises con­sciousness. Integrity of mind, becoming responsible and self-reliant, and not harboring contradictions, enhances the connectivity and unity of our mental terrains. We may raise a child to have integrity of mind and character, and thus, we raise our consciousness.

Learning to heal our body, to make it whole, likewise raises consciousness. Ultimately we uplift our consciousness by being peacemakers and healers as well as by being true to ourselves and each other and planet Earth with love, compassion, and caring.

A new energy arrived on December 21, 2012, allowing all humans to access the higher dimensions through the new  spiritual chakras. We need to understand that new energies are available to everyone on this planet to raise our vibration levels, and hence, raise our consciousness. It is the key to Peace on Earth.

Healing Consciousness

Consciousness itself actually can never be healed, as it is the foundation of healing itself. It is rather that our state of incomplete, separate con­sciousness is what needs to be repaired, mended, reconnected or made whole—brought back into the state of Oneness. This is known as the State of Being.

Some of us can get to this state once in a while, through meditation techniques, or by being with a Divine Soul. However, our bodies are made to incorporate these higher energies and dwell in the State of Being twenty-four/seven. 

Healing our entire being can be accomplished by intertwining the physical, mental, and emotional parts of ourselves. The following are examples of what many of us are experiencing as the energy shifts to higher vibrationary levels.

Symptoms Of Fifth Dimension Energy Shifts

Headaches: When the Crown Chakra opens or expands it can be an intense and painful experience. Headaches are common and they can range from migraines, to cluster headaches. Sometimes the pain can be eased by asking Spirit and your Higher Self to make an adjustment in the energy flow.

Flu-Like Symptoms: This is quite common and part of the process. Just ride it out and don’t take antibiotics which will only prolong the process. These symptoms are caused by the physical reaction to the toxins that are released when the chakras begin to expand. Whatever was constricting or congesting the chakras is flushed through the blood. It is helpful to supplement the body with blood fortifying enzymes, herbs and essential oils to ease the symp­toms. Hot lemon drinks will also help cleanse the body. Don’t work too much during this time, because you are going through a major shift in vibration. Try and take it easy and it will pass.

Nausea, Loose Bowel Movements, Diarrhea: This is a common reaction when the Solar Plexus Chakra opens and releases the stored fear, anger and resentment held in the area. The Bach Flower Rescue Remedy can ease these symptoms. Don’t be afraid to take it every thirty minutes if necessary.

Muscle Aches and Joint Pain: Increasing your vibration forces the energy through the body. When there are blockages impeding the energy flow this raised and forced en­ergy slams into them causing these symptoms and ails. Often this is al­leviated by asking for assistance from the Higher Self to adjust the flow to ease the pain.

Depression: A very common symptom caused by an increased rate of vibration. To discover the root cause contributing to this state, examine your beliefs and decisions that are creating your reality. It is also important to monitor your internal dialogue to learn what you are creating for yourself. Observing and realizing the state you are expe­riencing is not caused by the present allows it to quickly pass. The herb “St. Johns Wart” eases depression and is anti-viral too.

Crying for no Reason, Feeling Emotionally Vulnerable: When blockages from this lifetime and other lifetimes begin to release, the emotional body will react in this manner. Crying, moaning, sobbing or ton­ing becomes a cleansing release. Use a Bach flower remedy, or an es­sential oil to help with the emotional body.

Fluttering, Pain in the Heart Area, or Breathing Problems: Pain sensations in the heart and not being able to breathe can be very frightening because you may think you are having a heart attack. The above symptoms are caused by the ex­pansion of energy running through your solar plexus and Heart Chakra, heart and stomach area. The best solution is to relax, which will adjust the energy flow. Anxiety and fear only constrict the energy, thus caus­ing a more severe reaction.

Hot Flashes and Night and Day Sweats: These are commonly experienced by both men and women. This is due to energy flowing too quickly through the body, hormonal changes, which men have too, and the body learning to adjust to the higher vi­bratory rate.

Extreme Tiredness: Waking in the morning and struggling to get out of bed after a full night of sleep, or falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon is common. This is caused when the energy is shifting throughout the whole spiritual body. This will pass in time. If you can create a pyramid structure to sit under this will give you wonderful boosts of energy when you are lacking it. Drink lots of pure water to hydrate the cells, add crystals to energize the water. Eat light meals with organic veggies. Doing light physical exercise will stimulate the energy flow through the body. Bach remedies, flower essences and essential oils will also help the transition.

Excessive Energy: You go to bed early, exhausted, but in a couple of hours you are wide awake. It is important not to get up and be active be­cause the energy is for healing all the subtle bodies spiritual, mental, emotional and physical, the best way to assimilate the energy is to qui­etly sit and read, watch TV, or listen to meditation tapes to help you go back to sleep.

Weight Gain: The body feels like it is being invaded so it adds a layer of protection. If you are a Lightworker, then additional water is needed to create energy. If you don’t have enough water, the body will store water, which ultimately leads to stagnation. Another ma­jor factor is that with the activation of new DNA, fat is needed to hold the vibration. Body fat holds a higher vibration which is necessary to generate healing and channeling energy. Many of you also have agreed to anchor grids of light in the areas surrounding where you live.

Losing your Memory or Feeling Spacey: This can be a frightening experience because you cannot remember what you had for dinner, and dinner was only an hour ago. You are not losing your memory. You are changing over from left-brain function to more of a right brain function. Areas of the brain are activated to cope with the higher energy coming in. Sometimes it is hard to speak, words come out jumbled or garbled. This situation will pass, although there is no time limit.

Extreme Sensitivity: As you open up to the higher vibration, you will find yourself becoming extremely sensitive to people, noises, light, smells, tastes, all sorts of things. This can affect the central nervous system and be quite a diffi­cult thing to cope with. You need to take B vitamins and a multi-vitamin if this is happening to you. If you are allergic to these vitamins then look for a homeopathic remedy or a Bach flower remedy for extreme sensitivity.

Blowing Light Bulbs and Electronics: If this is happening to you, then you are really reaching a very high vibratory rate and will probably be a profound healer or channel for Spirit. It is due to extremely high energy coming into the physical form. It could be described as 50,000 volts of electricity coming in at once, not only can the body not cope, but it goes through the body and out again and as it does so it affects all electronic equipment.

Animal Reactions: You will find that dogs, cats and other animals will become aware of your energy and be frightened of it or want to be around it all the time. Many animals can’t get enough of the energy. Others are somewhat frightened because they do not understand it.

Good Changes: As you vibrate higher, you will find that you no longer want the things that you used to. Coffee, tea and meat are just three of the dietary chang­es that people make as they begin to vibrate faster. Meat is especially dense and can really affect the body’s energy, especially if it has hor­mones in it. You may develop cravings for certain foods, or go off your favorite foods. This is normal and a part of the change to the higher vibration. If you find this happening, then let it happen and explore the new possibilities.

From Meltdown to a Shift in Consciousness

The Earth is now knee-deep in economic meltdown. To be sure, it’s a big wakeup call to discover that what you once thought reliable and strong is indeed crumbling beneath your feet. There is a natural feeling of loss associated with this, regardless of how you are personally impacted right now. This feeling of loss can be overwhelm­ing, and it can trigger a sudden episode of depression. Even if you don’t typically become depressed, you can feel like a black cloud is obscuring your happiness, hopes and dreams.

While comparisons are being made between this current crisis and America’s great depression of the 1930’s, today’s economic predicament is quite different. The world has reached a tipping point, and the out-of-balance structures will need to be addressed in order for humanity to move forward. Band-Aid’s will not suffice. The global distress cannot be resolved through local measures that are isolationist, protectionist, or elitist.

What you are witnessing and experiencing is part of the great re­configuration underway as humanity births a new world. You may feel anxiety when contemplating the prospect of how much really needs to change on the planet. However, a wise part of you knows that change and loss are normal elements of the creation pro­cess on Earth.

You likely have witnessed or directly experienced count­less losses—big and small—throughout your life. Most likely, you have developed coping mechanisms for handling loss. Some of these you may be aware of, and others may be unconscious.

Your Blessed Higher Self also knows that the changes happening on the planet are a part of the great shift in consciousness predicted to oc­cur at this exact time. You have come to witness and be a part of this birth. The road now is indeed rocky, yet where it leads is a place in which you as a being can soar!
