Happy New Year! Get ready for some adjustments this year. 2012 will be a year of transformations and changes. These changes will be quick. There is a shift happening in the Universe. It began on 11-11-11 and will continue until 12-12-12. We are shifting towards something greater than us. Some of us have already experienced this energy shift on our planet. We have seen it in the sports arena for example, the Penn State scandal, in politics, with the ever-changing Republican primaries, and in the financial world, with the volatile European markets.
James Redfield the author of “The Celestine Prophecy” describes this year as “a period of strong energies making us feel uneasy and restless”. He also believes we are starting a new period in history and this is why we are hearing more about the Mayan Prophecy. We are ending one era and starting another one. Redfield explains that in order to adjust to the changes, we need to be more spiritually centered and create a strong connection to nature’s powerful energies.
Transformational author Christine Kloser talks about how we are living in a transformational world. Things are happening at an accelerated pace. She describes” that if we are not connected to our core, we will begin to feel out of balance”. Our core is our beliefs, values, and passions. With all these changes occurring, we might start to feel them taking a toll on us. The more grounded and balanced we are, the easier it will be able to handle these shifts.
This is not just a shift in the human realm, but also in the natural world. Earthquakes, floods and tornados happen for a reason, I believe the reason is for us to take stock of our lives and value what is most important. Usually the first thing people say after they survive a disaster is, “I am so glad I am safe and my family is alright.” They rarely make comments about the loss of their material possessions. After a disaster, mundane objects really don’t mean much to us. What really matters are the people and the relationships in our lives. I think this is why disasters occur. They shake us to our core, and help us realize what is essential in our lives. In an odd way, these tragedies help us to put our lives back into perspective. They teach us where we should invest our time and energy.
As all these shifts continue, you might start to notice changes. Now you are probably wondering after all this doom and gloom, “what can I do?” You might ask yourself, “is there anything that I can do to cope with these changes?” Well you can, and the first thing I would suggest is to ground yourself. Stabilize the energies around you by eating well-balanced meals, sleeping, exercising, and spending time in nature. All these things will help you to stay balanced and grounded.
The energies on the outside of your homes might change. It is important to keep the balance inside your homes and bodies to handle these rapid changes. You can make sure our environment is healthy and nurturing. Make a point to create harmony in your homes. As the world is changing and feeling more stressful, make sure your home is a place where you can rest, relax and escape from the chaos in the world. Invest your energies and time with the people who matter in your life. Spend time with people who are positive, upbeat and inspire you. It is the simple things that can make you feel balanced and grounded. These are the best ways to handle the shift and transformations that you are experiencing in the world today.
