As the Earth approaches the end of another year, there is much to ponder and reflect on. One of the biggest and most obvious changes that has taken place is how humanity is beginning to permit the power of love affect their lives in new ways. Yes, there have been many stories of violence, anger and fear. But also, as the year 2013 has gone by, you have been able to witness the Power of Love take hold on the planet in more ways than ever before.
Moving into 2014, the New Earth will start to take on a new energy; a change forged by the power of love. The power of love in your own life will be seen in many new ways. Everything from the smile of a stranger, to surprise opportunities and possibilities can come your way. One of the signals ushering in this change is the passing of Nelson Mandela. He is a shining example of living life from the heart. Now that he has passed on, he will be continuing his work in Spirit, leading and guiding many lightworkers to transform the world through the power of love.
On an energetic level there are many changes that body is going through as a result of this change. The Universal Love chakra has now entered the body through the Crown chakra, on its decent down to take its position at the Heart center. As the Universal Love chakra comes into contact with the crown, it is causing physical discomfort. Symptoms such as spaciness, feeling "out of it," having difficulty concentrating, dizziness, ear popping and whistling, headaches and body temperature fluctuations are all signals of this chakra transition.

With the Universal Love chakra entering the body, it is another sign of this changeover. The world has reached the tipping point, and where Earth was once primarily ruled by fear, Love is now beginning to take over. In order to best utilize it, the power of love must be truly understood. Many people identify love with lust, weakness, or obligation. However, love is none of these things. Love is about allowing each person to be who they are, and therefore allowing your own essence to shine through as well.
Love is about compassion and detachment, seeing each person with hope, and yet understanding that when they are experiencing difficulty, it can only be there for their own learning. This is the most difficult part of the changeover from fear to love. As fear tells you to separate, hate and blame others, whereas love allows you to see through the illusion created by these fear-based emotions. Love gives you an understanding of the bigger picture that is playing out on a soul level.
Whenever you are faced with challenges or perceived obstacles, ask yourself, "Why is this happening in MY life? Why is this event taking place in MY world of experience? What am I to learn from this?" Sometimes, the answer can be something simple, like to facilitate Divine timing, and other times it can be the result of a life lesson or karmic agreement. Whatever the reason may be, try not to bring your emotions into how you view the experience. For, once the emotions affect your view of things, it becomes more difficult to break out of perspective they create.
Taking the time to understand every piece of why something is going on can take a lifetime, and many times you will not be privy to the whole picture of why, until after your incarnation is complete. It is for this reason, it is so essential to learn to distinguish your intuition from your fear. Fear will keep you from moving forward, through how it gives reasons to qualify doing or not doing something. But, intuition does none of these things; intuition is a short and sweet directive, directly to the point of what needs to happen.
It is your intuition that will help you complete your karmic agreements and life lessons. Both of these are absolutely essential to finish in order to ensure you do not have to continue with the incarnation cycle. Yes, even in 5D there is an incarnation cycle, for that is what allows for learning to take place. However, once your personal soul evolutionary lessons and karmic obligations have been completed, then you can release your ties to this cycle.
So, how do you know if you have a life lesson, or a karmic obligation to complete? There are a couple of ways to discover this. Life lessons will always show up in your Astrological birth chart; they are areas of focus that you have chosen to face in this life that usually center on your soul learning theme. Some possible areas of this theme would be; science, compassion, relationships, finances, communication, etc. Another way to discover your life lessons is to look at the experiences in your life. You will know if it is a life lesson because no matter what you do, the theme will keep showing up in different ways. For example, if your life lesson theme is relationships, you will consistently be faced with some challenges in your close relationships.
Karmic obligations are unpaid debts that need to be finished up. They can be either something you need to pay, or something you need to receive. Karma is between two or more people, and there is also group karma. Karmic obligations, once completed, will totally shift and change the energy dynamic among those involved. For example, if you have a karmic obligation to help a friend, the opportunity to help them will keep showing up until the debt has been repaid. However, sometimes your karma is to say no to helping that person, and that is where many people get confused on this issue. To know what to do in any situation, it is absolutely imperative to listen to your own inner voice. There will even be signs and signals along the way to support you in what action (or inaction) will facilitate the completion of karmic obligations.
As the power of love takes hold in each person’s life, intuition will increase, and there will be more supporting evidence in your life to help you with making decisions and completing your life lessons and karmic obligations. That is the biggest benefit to this shift into 5D. Also, with the Universal Love chakra coming into its rightful position, Love will be able to take on its true power. There will no longer be any place for fear in love. It will take approximately another 2 Earth years for the Universal Love chakra to make its way down to the heart center. And, during the time of its transit, everyone will feel the effects of it connecting with the other upper chakras in the body as it passes through their energy fields.
The Universal Love chakra is like a giant spotlight, highlighting all energy within the body that is fear based, so that it can be removed. It will certainly take some time to accomplish this, as this is a big job to do, but the more that you can stay in a state of awareness about your own emotions, the better prepared you will be to tackle this change. If you find yourself feeling too overcome by the energy/symptoms of this change, simply ask your guides to tone it down. It will not affect your spiritual growth in any way to ask them for this, and in fact by doing so, you are truly learning to put your own needs as a priority.
Love does not require perfection, merely progress. Love has the power to change anything, but only when its power is properly utilized. Love understands everything from a greater perspective, and the more you shift into that perspective in your life, the more you are living in Love. As you near the end of another year, take the time to recognize the joy, gratitude, compassion and Love in your life. If you cannot recognize it, then make a commitment to yourself to draw it, and the awareness of it, into your life. All Love comes from Self-love first. Bring your intention of Love into the new year, and watch it create peace in your life.
