This seems to be the phrase echoing around most often as I read reports of what is happening these days. Part of what I experience happening as the Shift of Ages is an unstoppable expansion of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity into a more Global or Universal Consciousness.
We know that people are vastly more connected through modern technologies and the internet. This connectivity has strengthened the Human Collective Consciousness in entirely new ways. What is also happening on a metaphysical level is an expansion of the Human Collective Consciousness into a Universal or Global Consciousness. This Global Consciousness includes the consciousness of Animals, Plants, Trees, Mountains, Rivers and Oceans. We’re talking about the smallest particles of microscopic life living in between grains of sand on the desert floor and every tiny amoeba floating in the ocean. This global consciousness, as the name would suggest, also includes the consciousness of the Entire Planet as she spins around the Sun. We say Universal Consciousness because a Universal Consciousness includes the consciousness of other planets and planetary beings as well as the consciousness of the Dark Matter that makes up 96% of our Universe.
It’s an exciting Shift that is occurring these days. A vast and mind-bending, reality-changing Shift. A can’t-go-back-to-the-smallness-of-the-individual-mind-dissociated-from-the-collective-reality kind of Shift. At times this Shift is long overdue and cause for enormous celebration and revelry. At other times, it seems to threaten an apparently stable and reliable way of life that we are accustomed to. The unstoppable momentum of this Transformative Shift can make it seem a horribly and terribly frightening experience.
However we feel about the beginning of this Shift, it it is a sign of the unavoidable reality that things will never quite be the same again. Collective Consciousness includes the good, the bad and the ugly, after all. And with much of the planet in the raped and pillaged state she is in, Global Consciousness isn’t all brightness at this particular point either. There are a lot of suffering beings in the shadows of this blessed planet.
But that suffering is also part of the Shift. At first, the connectivity is overwhelming and consciousness shattering. But it settles down after awhile and we realize the amazing gift of Life we are blessed to be part of. Because, despite the suffering, there is also such indescribable beauty here in our world and in our hearts. We have the great privileged and honor to work with the incredible power of Life as we work this amazing force into our personal lives, our families and communities. Ultimately, as we become loving and kind selves, we create a loving and kind Universe.
With this in mind, let us fearlessly grab a hold of this Shift with both hands and an open heart rather than try to resist the irresistible. Have faith that you and I will be able to make it through this Shift of the Ages.
One thing that is for certain is that we will not be alone.
