Surviving the Shift – Part Two

Surviving the Shift – Part Two

You may be one of the millions of people suddenly affected by one of the four major symptoms of the Shift Syndrome. Here’s what you need to know to move through this with minimal discomfort.

A great many people all over the world are suddenly being best by unusual set of symptoms that is becoming known as the “Shift Syndrome.” Typically, these consist of sleep disorders, stress, depression, and idiopathic neuropathic pains (nervous disorders arising from an unknown cause). Particularly sensitive people might note a tingling or electric field sensation pulsating in various parts of their bodies. Because these symptoms almost universally result in adrenal fatigue and a consequent lowering of vital energies and the body’s natural immune system, they are turning out to be significant, life-changing conditions for many.

That is exactly what they were meant to be. The Shift Syndrome is a set of conditions that arise when an individual cannot adjust to the raising frequencies that are related to the normal process when a planetary system evolves from one density (level of consciousness) to the next. Instead of viewing these symptoms as annoyances that need to be eliminated as quickly as possible, consider them as a gift from the universe – an accurate measuring stick telling you how well you’re coping.

Imagine that for the next five days, at precisely 4:15 in the morning, a courier will pass your house to deliver an envelope containing a very important message. By agreement, he will neither wait nor leave the envelope unattended at your doorstep; it must be handed only to you. Knowing that the information is vital, you put out your clothes next to your bed and set your alarm clock for 4:00. The alarm goes off at the appointed hour, startling you from a deep slumber. Forgetting why you set the clock for such a ridiculous time, you turn it off and go back to the warmth of your covers. This goes on for night after night until, exasperated by the continued interruptions, you throw the clock away so you can finally enjoy a full night’s sleep.

The symptoms of the Shift Syndrome are your built-in alarm clock. They are meant to alert you so that you can receive the vital information you will need in order to make the transition into the new paradigm. From this perspective, you are better served by viewing them as a gift rather than unwanted symptoms to get rid of.

Shifts of this magnitude are triggered by giant outbursts of energies (akin to a cosmic tsunami) emanating from the central sun (black hole) around which our Milky Way galaxy revolves. As these waves sweep through our solar system, they affect every one of the planets (several have recently experienced significant polar shifts) as well as the Sun. The drifting magnetic poles and aberrant weather patterns (including global warming) being experienced here on Earth is part of this process. Scientists are observing a slew of unexplainable behavioral changes among animals1. Children and pets are exhibiting common behaviors that were considered highly unusual just a few decades ago.

In light of the massive geological and biological changes that are occurring all around us, why should it be surprising that we humans aren’t immune to the effects of the rising energies?  The trick is not to eliminate their effects, but to adjust our own spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical attitudes so that we learn to harmonize with them rather than resist them.

To understand this better, liken yourself to a hot air balloon. Before you can liftoff from the ground, you first have to release the ties that keep you anchored to your present location; then your have to ignite the fire that heats the column of air flowing into the balloon. Only then can you begin to rise and experience the joys of flight that are unknown to those still remaining on the ground.

Each of your beliefs is one of the strong ropes that keep you fixed. Although many of them are long-treasured sources of comfort and community, unless they are transcended, they will lock you to the old paradigm, impeding you from harmonizing your energies with the shift. This is one of the most difficult challenges each of us must face; it is virtually impossible to be open to the rising frequencies that flow from the central sun if you insist on having these new energies conform to your version of reality.

As The Group – an extraterrestrial intelligence2 speaking through Steve Rother (see: {url}{/url}) – puts it, our perception of reality is moving from duality to triality: “You are blending the positive and the negative together, you are blending the light and dark, for you have moved out of a reality of duality into a field of ‘triality.’ That is where you blend the Higher Self and the light and the dark sides of yourselves. That is the triangle, for all things upon Earth are built upon threes. Your entire Game (our collective experiences on this planet) itself is built upon the number three, and now you are acclimating that into five dimensions. Dear ones, that is what the portal is. That is the opening that has just been created. It is happening only because you are high enough to support it fully now. That is the only reason it is here, and you are the ones who have created it.”

Duality, which thrives upon the tension of opposites (right vs. wrong, good vs. bad, us vs. them) must give way to a new way of perceiving. My favorite example of this comes from the 13th century Persian poet, Rumi:

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing,

There is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,

The world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase each other

Doesn’t make any sense.”

In the oneness of Rumi’s field there is no separation, no gap between God and creation, no need for belief or dogma. There is only infinite, unconditional love. That is what the new energies offer us. Our choice is simple, either we continue to cling to the overhanging branches near the shore or, throwing caution to the wind, release our grip on old concepts and let the river take us where it will. As The Group suggests, if we intend to move into the next, five-dimensional octave of experience, we must transcend the dual nature of this illusion and shift into a perspective of triality that connects to our higher selves.

For most, this is easier said than done. There is no obvious link, no course of reasoning that will speed the process. In the past, many sought the assistance of enlightened masters whose beings radiated the energies of the next (Christ-like) dimension. People sitting in their presence feel blissful waves of unconditional love that open the doors to their own transformation. Today, connecting to various higher intelligences – whether emanating from your own higher-self (assuming a triality perspective) or connecting with certain disincarnate voices that channel through earthbound entities – can accomplish much the same thing. In fact, it was one such connection, back in 1985, with an amazing intelligence that calls itself Ra, (see: that catapulted me onto my journey.


However there are some concrete ways of reorienting your perception that will help speed your personal journey of transformation. More insight into this process was gleaned from The Elohim3 in a recent channeling: “The first step is to free one’s self up and become aware of the surrounding energies. Human bodies subconsciously track (and respond to) the energies of the Earth. One may then instruct (through conscious intention) the body to raise its energies at a subconscious level.”


The Elohim go on to explain that this process of releasing your old patterns reduces the knee-jerk judgments that involuntarily crop up from ingrained beliefs. As your personal frequencies begin to rise, you will notice a corresponding increase in your ability to observe without critical comment. You can greatly accelerate this process by observing your own behavior. Each time a judgmental thought pops into your mind, notice any associated feelings in your body such as a tightening in the stomach or chest, pain in the hands, or tension in the jaw. Then, consciously create an opposing perception. For example, if you’re suddenly cut off by a careless driver and experience the usual burst of muffled road rage, cultivate compassion be imagining a scenario in which the other person has just been fired or is experiencing some other personal tragedy that robs him (or her) of his ability to think and act rationally. Adopting this exercise as a regular practice will eventually cast off all the tethers keeping your hot air balloon anchored to the old paradigm.


Your next task is to ignite the burners that will send your freed basket into the higher realms. This is more easily accomplished by connecting to others who have already made the transition. As mentioned earlier, certain gurus attract large followings precisely because of their ability to induce this elevated state in their devotees. However, there are many other paths you might also consider. One, that is becoming increasingly popular, is to connect directly to one of the higher cosmic intelligences. If you haven’t mastered the art of channeling yourself, you can join others who have by reading some of the published material or attending a channeling session. The elevated energy of the source can come through the channeled material if you listen to (or read) the words with high intent as well as giving wise counsel to your lower nature. Keep in mind that negative sources also tap into these inter-dimensional information highways. Therefore, it’s important to point out that just because a channeling is purported to come from an elevated, extraterrestrial source, it does mean that you should accept it without question. You absolutely need to use discernment in these matters.


If all this is new to you, an easy way to connect with channeled energies is through telephone conference calls in which people all over the country share meditations, prayers, and community along with direct channelings that help them deal with the current shift. One such group, administered by Wynn Free, noted speaker and author of the best-selling book, The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?, plays host to The Elohim who not only provide wisdom and insight to all those present, but also hold the higher energies to facilitate a corresponding shift in all those present who wish to raise their personal frequencies.


There’s no charge to participate in these calls, but due to technical limitations, only a few hundred people can be accommodated at a time. If you want to take part in one of these weekly events, contact Wynn Free personally by email: The Elohim have made it clear that they encourage your participation and will actively support your prayers and intentions: “Our love goes out to each and every member of the conference line. You are loved more than you can possibly imagine. It warms our hearts to work with this sector. We will be aware of your heartfelt requests.”


The obvious question is why everyone on the planet isn’t experiencing Shift Syndrome? Apparently, it is meant to affect only those people whose frequencies are somewhat resonant with the higher energies streaming in from the central sun. Those too far out of phase (for whom the experiences within this octave of creation are still incomplete), hardly notice anything at all. Everything around them might be shifting dramatically, but they are oblivious to the changes on a personal level.


The rest of us need to choose whether we’d like to stay or move on. You’ve taken the first step by becoming aware of what this shift is all about. Now, you must decide which density you want to experience and take action. It is clear from all the information we are being given, that if you reach out as far as you can, the cosmic host will come the rest of the way to take your hand. The choice lies with you, and a great many loving and caring beings eagerly await (and will honor) your decision.



  1. A 2003 study published in the journal Nature, analyzed numerous studies involving wild plant and animals for changes in behavior. Out of the nearly 1,500 species examined, the researchers found that about 1,200 exhibited changes. The only explanation scientists could propose was global warming – even though the measured change has only been one degree Fahrenheit over the past century.


  1. Much controversy exists regarding channeled material, and rightfully so. In my years of exploring the various teachings claiming to have come from extraterrestrial sources, I have been subject the full spectrum of possibilities. I have come to the conclusion that all “positive” channelings come from sources that honor free will. They will never direct courses of action or provide material that is so unequivocal, that it leaves no room for other ways of perceiving. The truest channelings come with the caveat that the information provided is not truth, but simply provided as a perception given from their point of view. We should always be invited to accept what we find useful and reject whatever doesn’t resonate.


  1. The Elohim claim to be 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.
