"Man is born of , for he is of the Blood of the
Ancient Ones, but has the Spirit of the Elder Gods breathed into him.
And his heart goes to the Ancient Ones, but his mind is turned towards
the Elder Gods, and this is the war which shall be always fought, unto
the last generation of man; for the world is unnatural." – The Sumerian
Texts

There is a funny ‘retirement’ feeling in the air. You
may not feel like working much, or have lost your usual motivation and
inspiration for daily chores and projects. Meanwhile you may be
gravitating more to being out in nature, doing something creative,
reading or relaxing. You may have a feeling of wanting to do something
that completely inspires and nourishes you, wanting to find things that
you feel passionate about, or you’d rather be doing nothing at all. We
have lived for so long in a ‘busy = productive’ society that to suddenly
feel quite averse to ‘busy for the sake of busy’ makes us wonder what’s
wrong? We might wonder if we’ve entered a depression, only we feel
great when we’re gardening, cooking, painting or just being, so we’re
not depressed. We might think we’ve entered a slump, or are bored by the
same ole, same ole, but that’s not quite it either.

What’s
happening right now is: the grip of the mind as our primary is
being loosened as our heart is awakening and being activated. The heart
is now taking its place behind the wheel of our car – our Mer Ka Ba that
is – the soul vehicle for our light body. While we would all like to
think we’ve been , for the most part this has not
been the case, and we’ll talk about that more in a minute. As a result
of this shift from Mind to Heart Consciousness (which is really at the
heart, pardon the pun, of this Great Shift we are all in) it can feel
like your head has been emptied or is being vacuumed. During this
process you can find it hard to focus on any old or even current to do
lists, and your memory suddenly goes blank even for things that you had
in your head only a few moments before. Further, you’re finding it hard
to even care that you can’t focus.

This is because attached to the
mind is the mind’s emotional body, which I believe may be the same
thing as our ego’s emotional body, or what is also referred to as the
pain body. As we let go of our attachment to the mind with all its false
stories about who we are, what we should believe, how we should think,
what’s important and not important, we simultaneously let go of our
attachment to the mind/ego/pain emotional body that has been vigorously
running our life choices and experiences.

Even though this sounds
very cleansing, our (unnatural) natural tendency will be to resist this
process because the majority of our has been controlled by the
mind and ego and it’s not going to give up without a fight. It will tell
us anything it can to stay alive and to stay in power. It is a master
in keeping us in fear and negativity, and loves to play trickster with
distractions galore. We have a tendency to keep slaving away on
auto-pilot, and sometimes we do this even when we are determined not to,
such is the strength of the roots of our old way of being.

They
key is to make a conscious decision to listen to our heart when it says
stop, or pause or go, or rest, or relax or whatever it’s saying in that
moment. We are being emptied so that something new can enter. In
allowing a void, you create a space for new insights, knowledge, ideas
and inspirations to come to you that have been patiently waiting at the
door of your previously full mind. So it is not that we are losing our
mind, we are simply letting go of all the old stuff within the mind that
has kept us from remembering who we really are. This old stuff really
did rule and run our life, and now it is our heart’s turn. So our mind
will still be there, yet it will be a mind run by the heart, rather than
a heart run by the mind.

This shift also means that it’s ‘Out!
Out! Out!’ time for any old ego stuff: getting frustrated, feeling
judgemental or critical, getting angry at something or someone that
really has nothing to do with you, all that stuff that kept us
distracted from our own inner self and drained our energy away from our
inner source is now floating away. Make a conscious decision to notice
when your mind is running its lines on you be it going over the bills
you think you don’t have money for or thinking negatively about
something or someone or yourself! Just decide in that moment to stop
thinking that thoughtstream and change the channel to something better.
It is no longer relevant to who we are becoming, and to who we really
are.

This doesn’t mean it never had relevance. In our previous
stage of evolution yes we found relevance in the daily dramas we
created. We found ways to ‘learn’ and ‘grow’ via these daily dramas.
However that stage is now over. You can keep sitting in the theatre if
you like, but the show is finished, the sweepers are coming through and
the lights will go out any moment now. Yes the show was great, but if
you look outside you’ll see the party is continuing out on the street!

Most
people aren’t aware of this party, and that’s why we can be so addicted
to our ‘busyness’ and have become so dependent on our ego mind to tell
us what to do and how to feel. We are scared that if we stop being busy
every moment, and allow ourselves to sit in stillness and silence for a
few minutes, even a few days, or even…oh my gosh, can we really?…a
few weeks or few months, then we will….what? Evaporate? Cease to
exist? The world will collapse without us? We aren’t talking here about
closing your eyes in contemplation all day while the kids go hungry and
abandoned, or telling your boss you’re on a spiritual hiatus so that
report will have to wait. We are just asking you to notice if you have a
tendency to be occupied at every single moment, if you have a tendency
for your mind to be making a constant commentary on how well (or how
terrible) you and/or others are doing with life, and if you have noticed
something stirring within you asking you, perhaps even begging you, to
change that tendency?

It can actually feel disorientating to be
living fully in the heart, so we are all getting there little by little
in baby steps. Living in the Now sounds fabulous but if you’ve ever had
the experience of literally having your memory wiped so there is no past
and no sense of future only NOW it actually feels a bit scary! It’s
like being on one of those things at the children’s playground, the ball
with the plank on top and you have to keep your balance. The ground
underneath you isn’t solid. Time has kept us and our experiences
‘contained’ and so we’ve at least felt like we have some kind of grip on
reality. (I know there are days where that’s arguable!) But in a space
of no time we lose that grip, and it’s a whole other ballgame!

An
important key with this shift to Heart Consciousness is to know how to
stay in your centre, stay grounded and stay connected, all at the same
time. Something I do every morning is ask to be connected to the centre
of the highest Source of truth, love and light, and to the core and
heart of . I see this as one big flow of energy going
straight through me, up to the centre of Source, right down through my
heart and centre down to the core and heart of Mother Earth. I also ask
to be connected to my best possible self, best possible reality and best
possible movement forward on all levels: physical, mental, emotional,
spiritual, cellular, DNA, ancestral and etheric (all the chakras). This
might be something you’d like to do too.

A lot of people are
asking about a potential physical pole shift and earth changes, and how
to prepare. Personally, I think the best preparation is to be connected
to your heart, to your centre, to your Source and to Mother Earth. From
that space, you will be guided perfectly moment by moment. For some that
means moving geographically, for others it means visiting certain
places, for others it means staying right where you are. We are all
exactly where we need to be. This is such an exciting time to be on
Earth. We are finally becoming free to live as our true selves! What
wonderful things will we create in our new reality?
