Dawn of Unity; Big ol wave of energy & now a Tsunami siren oh my!

Faith and TrustOk so it was my birthday this last weekend, and so I was preparing for the personal shift that always comes around my birthday as I go through my solar return (astrological name term for b-day :)) and had heard some about the shift in energy that would be occurring that was being referred to as the Dawn of Unity Day. I had only recently heard that term specifically but I had been to a talk a few months back and watched a movie by Barbara Marx Hubbard http://www.barbaramarxhubbard.com/con/ that mentioned the shifting that has been occurring over millennia and continues to this day as a series of quantum shifts in evolution on the planet.

There is also information about this regarding 2012, and making reference of the (Bolon Yokte Ku, the cosmic pyramid) and how it shows the distance in time between these quantum leaps forward; with the latest one starting March 9th and being referred to as the Dawn of Unity Day; showing that they are occurring more and more rapidly and positing that we are in a very accelerated phase in the evolution of consciousness on this planet. Here is some additional information on that http://www.calleman.com/content/articles/dawn_of_the_unity_wave.htm

Ok so that is all well and good and since I do the kind of work I do with my clients I have my finger on the pulse of some of these changes and how people respond to them; however I am often not prepared for the big-o-wave of energy that happens whenever something like this shifts!! Seriously…I talk about it here a lot and I am about to do it again; this is one BIG HUGE SHIFT in energy hahaah; have you noticed?

An update as I am writing this blog post, there was an 8.8 earthquake in Japan, one just hit me here on my computer and now a Tsumani warning here on the island; which is amazing considering the rest of the blog post which was happening before I knew this was going on. Ok so onto what I was saying…

Shifts aren’t always bad, they are just change, and people respond to change in various ways. How do you respond? I know that one way that is optional but often really easy to go to is fear. It’s completely understandable, and in it we often want to point at something or someone that can be causing the fear and make them stop thank-you-very-much! Or perhaps we go the other way and want to cling to something in the past that we felt comfortable in or that is known; which is fine but the potential there is that rather than moving forward and expanding this often comfortable thing, we can instead project ourselves backward in the past with that thing/person/event and not do us any good either, and can actually lead to a feeling of depression (to learn more about present time as a healing vibration https://consciousmetamorphosis.com//blog/2010/06/18/present-time-as-a-healing-vibration-by-erika-ginnis/

But what if the fear is actually an indication of something else; and in paying attention to that and adjusting energetically we can have a better experience of all of these changes?

I am going to use (drum roll please) an analogy (shocking I know because it’s so rare :)). I have used a similar analogy before and it kinda makes sense since I live where I live and I am literally surrounded by water on all sides (perfect for me btw). It came up when I was speaking with someone recently and in the expression of it I realized that it was something I should put out on my blog because these things are happening to all of us.

There are Big things happening all over; in everyone’s life there are things that are “a moving and a shakin’” it’s almost common place now except that it is always new and different. Take the island I am on for an example; and the more than 100 earthquakes we had on Saturday and the stupendous show that Madame Pele’ is putting on with the new vent on the volcano and lava shooting 65 feet into the air, those are BIG things, and hard to miss!

Just remember that these shifts are NOT personal; meaning that the Universe isn’t out to get you. These shifts as a whole, are on purpose, planned for (on some much larger vibratory level that we often have forgotten about) and are part of the birthing process of the “New” (anyone that has given birth or been at a birth can tell you that it’s sometimes kinda messy, but well worth it in the long run). These shifts are not personal they are global at the very least; how we deal with them however is very personal.

Our personal experience of the planet and the changes we are going through can make it feel like we are all alone in this sea of uncertainty. We can in that moment wonder if we did something wrong to cause this or are being punished or are not living up to some kind of ideal and are falling way short. How we frame things really informs our experience. The “frame” is the story we tell ourselves. The story, if we tell it long enough or well enough will start to be our personal mythic journey, so it’s always good to make sure we like the one we are telling. If you have a story that says you aren’t good enough, or are lacking in some needed aspects I would consider changing it ASAP. This is not to say that there aren’t things that you might want to change, get better at, or even stop doing altogether, but it’s the story around all of those things and how you relate to it can totally morph how all that unfolds; and more importantly how it feels as it is happening.

So getting back to my analogy (thought I forgot didn’t you?). I was talking to someone today about being on a raft out on the ocean. You have this raft and maybe it isn’t the ship you’d like it to be or that it may one day be, but it’s a good sized raft and pretty seaworthy. You are dry and happy on your raft floating around on the blue sea…minding your own business and then wham! A huge wave comes out of nowhere and totally splashes you off your raft into the water (how rude). All of a sudden things are not so easy and you are getting all wet and there’s some water in your ears and your hairs all flat against your head (you get the idea). This is an analogy of being in your zone and getting hit “upside the head” with a big ol wave of energy like is happening these days and especially this week, just the power of the shift can land you in the water totally off of your comfortable easy to navigate place on your raft.

This has the potential to be pretty upsetting (ya think??); you could decide to get down on yourself and decide that you are a failure in some way, or possible get kind of scared of the fact that you are now awash in the middle of the ocean. You have another choice; you can remember that you have a tether to your raft (much like a boogie board or surfboard can have a tether so you don’t lose it in the waves) and notice that it isn’t any farther away than your tether, and that if you hang on you can get your head out of the water and then eventually get your butt back up onto your raft.

I know this is an analogy (or reality depending on ones location) but it’s so very close to what is happening to the best and worst of us these days on planet earth. Things are really changing. It’s not your imagination. Remember though… you CAME HERE for this, it’s not personal, when new energy hits then whatever is up for you, is the next level of stuff to clear. Remember that everyone is going through some variation of this because we are all here experiencing these waves. As you do your own work and get back onto your raft (ie find your zone again, get your alignment back, adjust to the change, go through your growth period…there are lots of names for this) you can be of greater help to others. Add to the analogy that there are a bunch of people also in the water and they will be needing to see you and the fact you seem to have this raft for Gods sake!

If you are on your raft you can also remind them that they have flotation devices around their necks and if they just pull the rip cord they will have a mini raft all of their own. This of course speaking to the fact that we all come equipped with what we need even in the midst of great change; but sometimes someone else has to remind us.

Time is happening so quickly these days (faster than we think sometimes). It takes some adjustment. Sometimes things come up and we are totally in fear…wondering how we are going to get from point A to point B in one piece. We forget that we have gone through things like this before and made it through to the other side. Plus if we ask we will always get help, and often it’s miraculous in appearance.

Have you ever noticed how quickly we forget these miracles though? It’s as if as soon as something moves into the physical plane (we get that unexpected check, or the test comes back with really good news…) that we forget that it was a spirit thing first and then became a physical thing not the other way around. It’s like as soon as we get over the elation of being pulled out of “certain death” (which is often what it feels like…no matter how small the problem) we start with our intellectual process about how we can now point at the ways this thing came about; even though minutes before we were praying our butts off asking the Universe for some Divine guidance and or intervention :).

The important question is and continues to be “Who is your Source”? The answer to that question will be asked again and again through these earth changes. Who is your source; is it your job (better hope you keep it) or your clients (better hope they stick around) or your spouse (you know the drill by now on this one)…OR is it the Universal energy of Givingness and Wellbeing and Health and Love and Prosperity coming t-h-r-o-u-g-h those people places and things, showing up AS them?

To the degree that you can remember that everything starts out as energy (literally everything) and that the Source of all of that is what is actually coming to you, then when things gets all “shifty” you can bounce back way faster.

This is one of the reasons that I suggest people have what I call an “answered prayer journal” you can also call it “magick that worked” or “demonstrations of Good” or whatever you want, the name is less important than the thing itself and what’s in it.

In my answered prayer journal I have listed over the years, things that have gone really well; especially things that I had no idea of how they were going to work out and then something happened and I was totally in awe of how the Universe worked it out for me. I don’t put everything down, maybe someday I will be even more disciplined about it, but it doesn’t have to be perfect for it to be really valuable.

When I get into a place where I am feeling afraid or uncertain or any of the other possible less than ideal feeling states that happen when I am freaking the frick out 🙂 I pull out my journal and read it from the beginning. I start to see evidence (my former work as a Research Chemist still in me somewhere… I love supporting data!) of how over and over again even when I could not see how in the world something would be able to come through or get fixed or heal, that it did; and that it worked itself not only out, but worked out splendidly; often better than I could have “planned”.

If you don’t have one, start it the next time something works out really well. Add to it when you asked for help and got it, when you needed that money for that bill and suddenly something came to you out of the blue, when any prayer is answered (however you define prayer). This is a little like a gratitude journal (which I also have) but it is more specific, and it is so awesome to have when something throws you for a loop, something like say a Tsunami warning siren!

Aloha and blessings!


Present time as a Healing Vibration. by Erika Ginnis

Present time is an energy, just as everything is an energy. It is also a concept; one that gets talked about in many different ways. It is the idea of being in the here and now. Present time is your point of power, the place where spirit and body mesh, where you can communicate with yourself as spirit most easily.

I have had people ask me how to find present time, how to know if they are in it or not.  And while there are a lot of more esoteric answers to this question, the one that makes the most sense and is the simplest is this…if you want to know where present time is…look for your body! Your body exists in the present moment; it is this great marker for present time. Find your body and you will find present time.

Now of course I can go into a long explanation about time and space and that you can have your energy spread out across all of it. I can say that there are energies in your body that are still vibrating in the past, and that there is usually some of your focus checking out the various possible futures that exist; and that at the very core of your cells and energy there are most likely vast differences in time frames. This is all accurate and I may in fact go into it at some later date; however for the purposes of this section let’s put all that to one side and put our attention on present time in a different way.

You are spirit and you are energy. You are vibration and your vibration is very fast and very bright (the nature of spirit). You are infinite and are not bound by time and space. Vibrating as rapidly as it does, your energy as spirit is not normally seen by the human eye.

You also have a body, and that body is also energy and vibration. The difference is that your body is vibrating slower than you as spirit vibrate and so it appears as solid, and it appears to have mass, therefore you can see it with your eyes. You body exists in the garden of time and space. It has a point of focus into time and space and that point of focus is called present time; what we refer to as the here and now.

I have heard it said that our bodies are bound by time and space, and while that may be true, I prefer to think of it as our bodies have their home in time and space; it is the way in which we as spirit come into this plane of existence, how we have experiences here.

All of this reminds me of the ultimate “Virtual Reality”. I am going to take a digression for illustration: I play computer games and I love movies, both of these media have been being improved upon recently; high definition and soon to be 3-D television equal more information on the screen, making it all look so much more real. Computer games have better and better graphics and hand sets where you can feel the action and microphones through which you can talk to other players.

I think about this and I think about virtual reality and things like science fiction that portray holographic reality that feels like the real thing. I am taking this digression because these things get my mind going; and where I end up is that we are mimicking in our technology what we have already accomplished as spirit.

We are already living in the most advanced virtual reality environment that we have imagined. We as spirit have these amazing “avatars” if you will, our bodies, and we mesh with them as spirit and by doing so we are able to walk and talk and smell and experience this planet in all its glory (our planet has it’s own consciousness by the way, and we are also a part of it, but I will not go into that right now…one digression at a time!).

I can only guess where we will find ourselves as our technology moves forward, I can imagine layers of reality one on another…wait, we already have that, those would be dimensions. Perhaps we are just in the process of creating another layer of our ongoing creation we call time and space.

The better we make our virtual reality the more “real” it seems, and the goal is to make it as real as possible yes? This brings me back to this idea of being spirit in a body. The more real something seems, the more we are likely to believe it is real. And while this is awesome for a computer game, it can be confusing for us as spirit. When we come into our body in any lifetime we are immersed into the energy of the time and place, and it is so wonderfully real that we sometimes forget (momentarily in the grand scheme of things) that we are not our experiences, we are the ones having the experience! We are spirit!

We as spirit want to remember who we are, and some people do this by trying to make the “reality” less real in any number of ways. This can work but it also takes us out of the “game” so to speak and we lose out on why we are here in the first place.

-Back to my digression.

It is possible when one is playing a computer game to set things up so that you are hovering above the character you are playing, or be right up close to all the action. In the case of watching a movie, we can be in a dark theatre with a huge screen and 3-D glasses on and lose ourselves in the story, or we can be watching it in the living room while snacking and talking with our friends, and having an entirely different experience. These are great analogies for how we work with our bodies.

Many people like the hovering (or more detached) perspective, which is fine, but doesn’t allow much in the way of hands on experience or influence. Some people like to be right in the mix, but then feel like they lose themselves and don’t have enough information about where they are with respect to the over all game plan and want more sense of scope. What if we could have the best of both worlds?

I, of course, believe we can absolutely have both; we can have the rich experience and remember who we are at the same time. This brings me back to present time. When we remember that we are spirit, that we are that which is having the experience; we can use our entrance into this reality, through our bodies via present time, as a way to be both the “experiencer” and the witness to the experience. It can give us that fully immersed perspective while still maintaining access to all the controls (so-to-speak) as we play this game. We open an avenue for communication and intuition (our guidance from within). Being in the here and now you have access to all the communication available from yourself as Spirit and from the wisdom of your body (as well as from the Universe as a whole); you know what is going on with you, and within you; emotionally, physically and spiritually.

As we release the clutter in our energy system and body (via things like meditation and grounding) it not only gets easier to be in present time, it becomes more pleasurable. Often the reason someone will avoid being in their body is simply because of the discomfort they feel when they run up against the out-of-phase energy that is stored in it from the past.

I mentioned that present time was not only a point of power, but that it was/is an energy all unto itself. Often when I do healing work on myself or someone else I will use present time energy as a way of melting away that which is no longer beneficial so that the clearer more current energy can bubble up into awareness. Simply the act of “bringing something into present time” will raise the vibration and release what no longer applies.

This is something you can do yourself as well. Practice by playing with your focus.
  • Let it wander to the past, and then wander to the “future”.
  • Notice that your focus can be anywhere you decide to put it.
  • Then let it come back to the here and now; use the sounds around you to bring you back to this moment, allow the moment to flow through you.
  • Feel your clothing on your skin, the breath going in and out of your lungs.
  • Release energy down your grounding and settle into your body a little bit more.
  • Give yourself permission to fill up with “present time” energy and let it melt away anything that is no longer appropriate for you now.
  • Let this energy update anything that needs updating in your energy system (back to the computer game analogy again). This can be especially helpful for information brought forward from other times and places; information will be much more useful if it is in a format that you can use today as opposed to lifetimes ago.

Another benefit of present time; as you gather yourself up into the “now”, you have more energy available to you. Ever feel you are spread kind of thin? Ever wonder where your energy goes? Think of having a glass sitting on a table. Let this glass represent present time, your point of power. Any water in this glass represents the power you get to use to create your life and experiences with, there may be a little water or a lot. If you tend to have your energy stuck in the past (why did I say that?? Why did they do that? If only I had…) or flung out into the future (someday I will be perfect and then I will be happy…), then there is less energy available to you in the now, which is where your life actually happens. Imagine several other glasses on the table each with a little water in them. Let them represent your attention spread out into the past and the future; how much water is in them? As you ground and breathe and come into present time, it is akin to pouring more of the water into the present time glass; allowing more of your energy power and focus to be available to you. This is good news!

So what about if you don’t like what is going on in present time?

Great question, glad you asked!

You shift your reality by shifting focus, by shifting beliefs, by taking action inspired by intuition. All of these things require energy and power to work; your energy and power. The more “water in your glass” the more power behind your intention for a new future.

The more you are in present time the greater your connection to the Truth of you and the clearer your vision for what you want to create will be; the more light of you will be shining in the direction you choose to point toward. I don’t know about you, but I walk much better on a well lighted path.

Present time is a wonderful healing vibration. Play with some of the things I have outlined and see if you get some benefit from them. It’s all about finding ways to enjoy this amazing experience of being spirit in a body this lifetime. We are here (in my opinion) totally on purpose, so why not fully embrace it and find that balance where we are totally in the game and still remember how much fun it is to play as we are playing.

Blessings and Aloha ~Erika
