Surviving the Shift – Part One

Surviving the Shift – Part One

Everything on planet Earth is changing dramatically. If you are suddenly beset by unusual physical symptoms such as increased stress, inability to sleep, depression and unexplained pain, you may have the first warning signs that you are not coping with the shift.

I have a recurring, haunting vision that one day I will be called before a cosmic council of highly evolved, loving beings to explain the chain of events that have caused humans to become so exceedingly desensitized. It’s not a comfortable thought.

From a metaphysical perspective, I understand that the higher aspects of each of us sits on that council, just as the lower aspects of our beings are immersed in the illusion of living our lives here on planet Earth. I also understand that we deliberately block access to our dual nature so that we might have the richest possible experience during our time in incarnation. Even so, I continue to be stunned by how far we have strayed from who we truly are.

The good news is that it is all about to change – and very soon. If one is to be persuaded by the information presented by several sources (including ancient writings, scientific observation, prophesies, channelings, and simple observation), Earth, together with all its human, animal, vegetable, and mineral/chemical passengers, is currently undergoing a profound transformation in which the vibratory energies are markedly rising.

These are not easy times for most of us. It is like standing with one foot on the dock and the other on a boat that is drifting away. We urgently need to jump one way or the other; pretending not to know is no longer an option. On the one hand we can continue moving with the pack, feeding off the endorphin rush that comes with the thrill of the hunt. By increasing the violence of war, movies and television shows, the electronic games our children play, and the manner in which we treat one another, we increasingly commit ourselves to a vicious circle of self-destruction that threatens to destroy us long before global warming or some other ecological disaster wipes us from the face of the Earth.

Unless we quickly find a way to reconnect to our own divinity, the glorious human experiment will play its final performance long before it has had a chance to explore the many wondrous possibilities yet to be discovered. In the face of the divisive actions of our political and religious leaders, who unfortunately have captured the hearts, minds, and will of billions of followers, there seems little likelihood of reversing the course. Despite their flag waving or holy book thumping rhetoric, no side can win this game of life unless we all win.

As English historian, Lord Acton, noted, “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Our leaders are corrupt only because we have absolutely abdicated our personal power to them, honoring and obeying them blindly despite our inner knowing that they are turning us all into shamefully distorted caricatures of the image of God in which we all are created. Clinging to the consensus reality that defines us as good, upstanding, patriotic, God-fearing folk – as opposed to those heathens who don’t share our beliefs or values – is like swimming as fast as we can toward the vortex of a whirlpool.

Our other choice is less clear, for it can only be based on faith, rather than fact. While we are able to predict, with an uncomfortable degree of certainty, where our present course of action will lead, figuring out how to move away from this deeply entrenched pattern requires a bit of effort. But the consequences of not doing so are unthinkable.

Like it our not, we are each faced with some very adult decisions. We are being pushed to the wall and either we take immediate action or succumb to the entropy of indifference and denial. Fortunately, there are physical as well as metaphysical symptoms to the times we’re living in. It appears that we have a built-in, failsafe mechanism specifically designed to grab our attention so that we all might have the opportunity to wake up and make the necessary adjustments before our time runs out.

Over the past few months, I’ve been asking many doctors whether they have noticed a change in the type of complaints reported by their patients. Not surprisingly, they have. Despite the many differences that separate conventional (allopathic) medicine from some of the more naturally oriented modalities, there is almost total consensus among the various practitioners in the conditions being presented by their patients.

I shouldn’t be astonished if the medical community finally reports that this collection of interrelated symptoms is rapidly becoming the number one illness of our time and is found to be the underlying cause of a host of other diseases. It is characterized by four main complaints: (1) sleep disorders, (2) stress, (3) depression, (4) idiopathic neuropathic pains (nervous disorders arising from an unknown cause). The almost universal end result presented on the physical level is adrenal fatigue.

The adrenals are small, triangle shaped glands that sit atop of the kidneys. They are the body’s primary line of defense against stress (emotional, traumatic, disease, and environmental), secreting an impressive range of chemicals including steroids, several key sex hormones, along with cortisol and epinephrine. When these glands under perform, your well being is jeopardized and, in the extreme, can progress to a terminal illness.

But simply treating your adrenal glands doesn’t address the underlying cause. In fact, unless you happen to be under the care of a metaphysically oriented health practitioner, it’s not likely that you will be told the story behind the story: why this recurring set of symptoms – which I like to call the “Shift Syndrome” – is beyond their control. Your body’s physical responses are your personal wakeup call providing you with an accurate measurement of how well (or badly) you are adjusting and harmonizing to these changes.

According to an extraterrestrial intelligence that calls itself the Elohim1, we are indeed in the thick of just such a shift. “Individuals are (presently) sitting in fields of energies that are being raised throughout their surrounding planetary and solar system complex.  By raising their (personal) energies to match and keep pace with the increases in frequency and intensity (of this shift), they will be able to raise themselves in consciousness. This will make it considerably easier for them to pierce the veil2.” The Elohim go on to explain that when people fail to raise their energies to match the increasing frequencies, they fall “go out of sync with their surroundings.” This will invariably lead to the wide spectrum of physical ailments that we are coming to know as the Shift Syndrome.

According to other information that corroborates what the Elohim tells us, each individual must personally discover how to match and flow with the changing energies. No practitioner, modality, or remedy can do it for him or her. There are specific reasons why the physical symptoms of the Shift Syndrome are affecting so many people worldwide. If viewed from the proper perspective, they are a valuable tool for our own transformation. We are now being instructed with very specific work each of us can do to make the necessary adjustments.

The precise suggestions offered by the Elohim and other cosmic intelligences will be shared in part two of this article.

  1. The Elohim are a cosmic intelligence that communicates with speaker and author Wynn Free (The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?), through a clear channel, Terry. I requested that they contact this loving source to provide their perspective to the issues raised in these articles. The channelings were made on January 12th and 13th of 2007.
  1. The Veil is a term used to describe the energetic matrix that separates a newly incarnated soul entering the Earth plane from his or her connections to other level of consciousness. It is the mechanism that holds the illusion of our current consensus reality in place and inhibits humans from leaving this dimension.
