If you are like most people – you don’t like it when someone does something to you without your permission. It doesn’t matter if the person had your best interests at heart or not, it is still a violation; a violation of yourself as an autonomous individual responsible for your own actions. This is just one of the reasons why, as stated in PART I, people are reacting so strongly and many times so negatively to the earth changes that are taking place all around them; inside of them even. They see it as a violation of their own autonomy and interpret the changes (needed or not) as an indication of manipulation.
It is perfectly understandable that people would be upset in feeling these changes, especially when they were not consulted regarding whether or not they wanted to take an active part in them. There’s just one thing – you already did give your permission.
If you are currently at a point in your spiritual development where you can feel the changes in the earth energy and you are aware that there are changes (welcome or not) occurring inside of you, chances are that even if you don’t like what I’m going to say, you will, on some level, at least understand it.
The entire point of the changes that are occurring as we speak has to do with the next step in the evolution of life in general, and humanity in particular. You see, in order for us to move on in our development, we have to change, and that means not just changes in our perception, but physical changes; some of them so subtle that it would probably take a microscope far stronger (and tuned in to aspects of our physical bodies that we currently don’t acknowledged) to be detected.
Both the changes in our bodies and the changes in our perception are necessary to facilitate this shift, and while it may seem as if the changes are occurring without so much as a by-your-leave, the truth is that long before you were born you agreed to be here for this. Experiencing these changes is a part of the reason that you agreed to be here – now.
These dramatic shifts have happened before, but this time is different. This time we are not dealing with a simple evolutionary shift; a physical change that enables life to exist and grow more rapidly or in changing ecologies. This isn’t even a shift such as you find when knowledge increases to a certain point where changes in perception are facilitated. No, this shift is something entirely new; it is a shift in our spiritual evolution; one that requires that we not only make changes to our bodies, but to our perception as well. In addition, this spiritual shift is not just happening to one species on the planet. It’s happening to the entire planet.
Earth’s energy is definitely changing – and for the better, whether we realize it or not; in fact, whether we want it to or not. And it is understandable if this change can be frightening. After all, we don’t remember what this is all about. To those of us in an unawakened state it feels as if rugs are being pulled out from under our feet at an alarming rate; leaving us lurching for support – or at least for something recognizable; something tangible that we can hold onto. And as we find our support systems being stripped away, it generates a fear of the unknown, of not knowing what will happen next.
Since the changes are happening – and since we have no choice in the matter – the issue then becomes, how will we deal with these changes?
Will we fight them? Will we insist on viewing things the way we always have? Or will we let go of our preconceived notions of autonomy and manipulation and embrace the changes as a part of our purpose for being here at this particular moment in time?
No, we are not headed towards some vague utopian state where you will have to give up your individuality; nature still values diversity and will always encourage it. What you will have to give up, however, is your fear; specifically your fear of change and your fear of acknowledging the interconnectedness of everyone and everything.
Yes, it is a big step, and one that may seem a little frightening at first, but once you’ve taken the first step, earth will take care of the rest. You’ll be working with her instead of against her, and while there will still be rough patches as those segments of the population that refuse to acknowledge the changes and who attempt to fight them do their best to keep it from happening, in the end earth will win – life will find a way – and we can take our first steps on the new road of our spiritual evolution and towards a future we never could have imagined.
