Why are Things so Intense? 

Re-writing our Experience of the Great Shift

By Norma Gentile

This article is about the intense energies surrounding us from now until 2013. A new Meditation CD / podcast is now out, and you may also find Manifestation in the Aquarian Age helpful.

Most of the wounds that we who are incarnating into the Western culture experience express themselves as distortions in the lower three chakras of the body. The wounds in the our 1st chakra are particularly evident as we move into and through the year of 2012. This chakra has to do with the most basic instinct of survival; fear of not existing tomorrow. These sort of extreme fears come from wounds that our soul has experienced in multiple lifetimes. Many of these energies are not issues that will be resolved in this one lifetime here in the 3rd dimension.

In order to help us clarify what of these survival issues are ours to work with and which to release, there are a series of eclipses from now (December 2010 through 2013. Each eclipse brings us to the point of experiencing fear, frustration, disorientation and unexplainable emotions as a way of helping us locate and release patterns of energetic distortion related to survival.

Many people who consider themselves to have followed a spiritual path believe that they have moved beyond the 1st chakra. But they haven't. The primary issue facing those living in industrialized society is based in the 1st chakra. Survival. Will the human race survive or destroy itself in the next five, thirty or hundred years? Will we make the transition into an Aquarian Age, which honors the strength of our shared collective consciousness, or will we perish trying to escape the cycle of change by creating artificial structures that will ultimately collapse upon us?

As long as what is done is best for one person but is not useful for another person, we are climbing upon the shoulders of another human as we try to escape and save ourselves. In this scenario many souls who have been incarnate in human bodies will make the transition into the Aquarian Age without their physical bodies. This has happened in earlier shifts and simply means more work for the soul upon reincarnating back into the physical (or near physical) dimension. One of my guides, Thoth, suggests that humanity will move its consciousness into a new type of physicality in the next thirty years. Those who incarnate will be returning to a physical reality, but it will not be of the same vibration as the one we have been exiting since the late 1800's.

Many people have read about or have found their own memories of the last Great Shift about 13,000 years ago, when we first entered into the Piscean Age. Most accounts tell of the destruction of the continent we know as Atlantis, the subsequent lose of life by most of the inhabitants of that continent, and the survivors fleeing to other lands and seeding new civilizations around the world.

Is it no wonder then that as we enter into a similar Great Shift (centered around December 21, 2012) that our consciousness, both as individuals as well as our shared collective consciousness, is remembering the fear and tumult that accompanied the last Great Shift? Our human instinct is to grab hold and control the Earth so that she will not upend us as before. Our fear arises that those we love will perish in great chaos, and that all we know will again be gone.

But that was then, and this Great Shift is very different. Although our bodies and our collective consciousness are experiencing the same vibrations of change as 13,000 years ago, this Great Shift into the Aquarian Age is also a shift back into a stronger connection to Spirit. The previous Great Shift was a movement away from the collective voice of Spirit into a time of exploring our Free Will. And during this time we explored our ability to create apart from God / Spirit / All That Is successfully. I would say successfully because we are aware of much of human history in the past 13,000 years, and are able to bring that knowledge forward with us as humans into this present Great Shift. Bringing our knowledge with us as living human beings into the vibration of the new Aquarian Age allows for our experiences while in this state of individuation to be shared with all conscious beings in all dimensions.

So often people have spoken about receiving information and insight from angels, guides or others whom they perceive as helpers. Now we are able to be of service to all those beings who have surrounded and supported us in the past. Our experience of living apart from Spirit / God / All That Is and having Free Will to chose our own path brings a wealth of new energies and experiences back to the collective consciousness of Creation. It is like God re-examining God and finding something new.

For this reason I believe that many people are experiencing both a remembrance of the fear they experienced during the last Great Shift as well as an anticipation of returning home to a celebration. These two great currents of emotion are moving through our personal lives as well as our human society. And fear is abundantly reawakening within our 1st chakras.

Those who have followed my work may anticipate my suggestion for dealing with the reawakening of fear patterns within your own 1st chakra. Begin by noticing your fear and do not dismiss it. Turn and face it. Ask the fear if it is yours. Is it all yours? Is it in tune with your male or female body? Is it in current time? Is the time period that it believes to be its own time period this present moment? Allow it to move to wherever in the time line it belongs.

A pattern of thoughts or emotions cannot be changed when it is out of sync with its surroundings. A pattern can only change when it is in its own time period and connected to whatever or whomever it is meant to be working with and connected to.

Too often we sense patterns of deep emotion that were part of our soul's other lifetimes, and believe that we can fix, change or heal them by taking them into this life. But we cannot. The energies of the emotions we experience in each lifetime can only be changed within the context of that particular lifetime. We must therefore allow the emotional energies to return to their own time period.

When we address and heal the fear or other emotion that is within our lifetime here and now that same emotion receives a healing within its own time frame. It is similar to a chain of Dominos. When you remove one domino from the chain then the movement stops and all the remaining dominos cease to fall down. When you replace that one domino, the motion that was begun at one end of the chain continues. In this same fashion the changes you make within this lifetime naturally affect all the other lifetimes of your soul. You need not consciously heal energies from other lifetimes within this lifetime. You need only heal those issues that your soul is presenting to you now to address.

As we move into and through this present Great Shift we need not re-experience all of the fear and grief from the last Great Shift. We need only address the fear that is naturally arising for us as humans in this time period. What portion of fear is really yours in this lifetime? What portion belongs to your body and your soul? Allow those portions that are not in tune with your body or your soul in this present moment to go to their own time frame or lifetime. In order for them to evolve, grow and healing they must be in place to receive the changes that are coming their way. Heal what is yours to heal now. That is enough.
