The Week Ahead: Bigger Picture Week

"In this moment, what is transpiring in your own personal life? How does that feel? Is it working for you? What would you change? What would you enjoy expanding? We are not asking you to change anything. We are just asking you to bring your awareness to what is taking place right now in this moment. We are not passing any judgment. Once you shed light onto something you can't go back. You must be aware and face what is. You always have choices about what to do from this place. Know that nothing is stuck. You may help change anything that is in this current moment and experience. You may also just enjoy whatever you have." - a meditative thought from my guides.

Living during this time in Earth's planetary history comes with a unique set of challenges. Learning how to increase your life force by returning to inner balance, while being exposed to the many external influences we interact with on a daily basis has the potential to rattle the best of us. It is crucial, however, during the amplified energetic cycles of 2012 not only to maintain, but to increase your "inner awareness" attention.

When you aren't grounded and balanced within the Self your life force energy is weakened. This can lead to feeling cranky, hot-headed, frustrated, constricted, lazy, and lack endurance and tolerance for others. Pay attention this week to what you are resonating with and to - your life force stream reacts and adjusts to every stimulus or energy that it is being exposed to within the body, mind, emotions or spirit. If an external stimulus is stronger than the inner awareness life force present, your being will be forced to adjust in a way where a consequence of that influence is perceived or experienced.

If the impact of external stimuli is dissonant the consequence of that force can range from mildly unpleasant to excruciatingly painful. The level of development of your inner spiritual core will determine the corresponding reaction or response your body/mind/emotion/spirit will have to that force. If the mind is weak, unfocused and undisciplined those influences will pack a punch to your emotional body, weakening your life force. Nothing is more powerful than the commitment to your internal Self and its spiritual life force stream. Cut through obstacles on your path this week (and beyond) by being extra disciplined in communing with the Inner You. This loving act will save you from wanting to crawl under the blankets and dream of better days. By steeping yourself in the authenticity of your spiritual heritage you will create days that are birthed from goodness, gratitude and love rather than fear, rage and frustration.

It's important to realize that ascension aspects are impacting humanity at large. This includes you and everyone you meet. You may be having a wonderful day feeling inspired and confident about whatever is drifting your way. Other people, however, may be having a much different kind of day. An encounter with a stressed co-worker or spouse could leave you out of sorts, unless you remain mindful of the bigger picture. Remember, not everyone is consciously awake like you. Also, even aware and awake people can have a bad day as we lead ourselves away from the old paradigm of beliefs and into unity once again.

To successfully navigate the currents of radical cycles energetically affecting humanity, it's helpful to understand how you are personally affected. Having an awareness of ascension influences will help you know what areas of life will likely be challenged, why, what remedies and what states of mind you can apply to make the journey smoother and more harmonious. When you can apply antidotes during the times you are challenged then life becomes more manageable. After all, you are a divine conduit of Eternal Source Energy [a.k.a. the Soul] learning to move into your authentic power to create. You are not a victim of circumstances - galactic, planetary or otherwise.

To give you some wisdom assistance getting over the hump of 2012 I've compiled a "part 2" of ascension symptoms that may be impacting some of you. Some these symptoms may have already passed for some of you, or perhaps never occurred at all.

No sense of place:
It is very common to have this feeling during or right after a substantial upgrade or shift in energies. We receive an internal shake-up when we are catapulted to a new level of vibration, and the outside reality no longer fits us. We can thus feel that we no longer belong anywhere, cannot relate to anyone or anything, feel quite alone, and nothing much feels good to us anymore. I have listed some comforts for this symptom further along in this energy read.

A need to eat often with what feels like low blood sugar attacks, or simply wanting to gorge on food:
When we are re-aligning within and morphing, our bodies can really take a hit and require more energy than normal. Protein is the key here. During these times I have to eat every two hours and this includes a healthy dose of protein. The gorging or wanting to fill up is a different thing. With so much loss occurring along with losing much of who we thought we were, we can at times have a desire to fill up somehow. This can manifest as wanting to eat large amounts of food and wanting to really feel full.

Craving anything "new":
After we move ahead to a higher vibrating "level" or dimension, it can feel uncomfortable to be in anything "old." For those who are highly sensitive, this can manifest as severe discomfort and an almost gagging or repulsion for anything which existed before. It is in our wiring . . . we are being encouraged to move ahead into the new, or rather can no longer tolerate the lower vibrations or things of the past. We have been rewired and are now vibrating within a new space and reality.

Becoming easily overloaded and overwhelmed:
With newer energies in place, much has been dislodged and relocated to a new residency. Much pushing then is occurring. This can cause feelings of hyperventilation, squeezing, headaches, and an overall feeling of stress. With so much going on within and without, we can easily become overloaded. Rest is vitally important now, as well as saying "no" to much and being willing to stay simple. Resting and making things simple can often be the salvation that saves you from panic and anxiety when feeling like "things are too much".

Forgetting where you are and losing your place:
Many times when I am walking the vast expanses of the Atlantic shoreline, I can forget where I am, who I am, or what reality I am in. This can occur at other times as well when we begin to vibrate higher. It is as if we are not connected to anything at times, and are thus hanging out there in a space which gives us the opportunity to create whatever we choose. As we vibrate higher, we hold onto much less. Energy is in and out, very quickly and moves very fast without clinging or holding on. Anything not being held in our consciousness will simply cease to exist. Getting used to this can be scary or at best confusing, but it can also allow us to create fresh and new at any given moment.

Tools for Comfort: When we go through a substantial shift into a higher dimension, it can really wreak havoc on much of everything within and without. In this regard, it can greatly help if you can find ways to stay connected to the higher vibrating energies, as so much else is falling away. During such times we need to feel good again, and connecting to higher ways of being and living can greatly soothe us. Below are some remedies which I have found to be very helpful.

Stay in your creativity as much as possible.
In the higher realms, creativity is what it is all about. Thus, creativity always carries a high vibration no matter what dimension we are residing in. For me, painting, writing, gardening, cooking, and creating any DIY project (do it yourself) immediately takes me into a beautiful space and I feel wonderful and connected again. It also serves to get negative thoughts out of the way, as well as our ego selves!

Be in the company of as many little ones as possible.
Our little ones naturally carry a higher vibration and we can easily feel oh so connected once again. We see them and they see us. They match us so much more closely than much of anything else. My 5 year old next door neighbor has saved me countless times during an ascension shift. These little ones love us as much as we love them!

Get distracted and stay away from the news, the outside world if need be, and just keep as busy as possible in your own world.
This past week while I was with my mom I had no TV, no internet, and spent almost all of our time playing cards, laughing, and eating. It was pure bliss. The only reality I was aware of was the reality of a loving environment with my family.

Spend time in nature as much as possible.
This can be tough right now, as even when we are in nature, we can still pick up all the changing and disruptive energies. But the earth is ascending as our vehicle, and being around her energies can connect us as well. Her incredible sunsets, magnificent cloud formations, the smell of sweet earth , and wildflowers abounding can make one feel as if they have arrived in heaven.

Take a break and rest.
If you are able to, take a day designated just for you. Read a trashy magazine, lay in bed all day, go for a walk, read a pleasurable book (not a self-help book!), tinker around the house, or just sit in the sun. Things will indeed begin to rev up for you again, if they have not yet begun to do so, so a time out now can really be what is needed.

Bond with your animal companions.
They are a part of our individual community and our family and it can feel wonderful to spend as much time with them as possible as a part of our whole.

Just stay away from what is crashing and re-aligning. . . or stay in your sacred space.
Our sacred space, or what we have created, is very much in alignment with who we are. Thus, we can feel secure, grounded, and just plain good when we are there. Staying home can feel best at times.

The ascension process is set to divinely prepare us for the higher realms completely on its own. It is a beautiful process that knows exactly what it is doing quite naturally. If we try to assist or interfere, to expedite it or make it happen by ourselves, we will only serve to open way too fast, create discomfort, jump ahead of where we are and thus not be aligned, and perhaps make our loving non-physical care takers wonder what in the world we are doing as they are so lovingly monitoring the whole process!

Things will be settling down as our re-connections become more and more intact, and this is already happening now. And yes, everyone will begin to experience miracles and new beginnings as we get re-structured, re-aligned, and settled into very new spaces. Hope this helps those of you who have been asking . . . it can be difficult to explain but I would imagine you get the drift.

Wishing you heaven in your heart, starlight in your soul, and miracles in your life during these miraculous times,

Rev. Angela


As I look deep into my own reflection at this time, I stand silently watching the radiant universe exhume and resuscitate the soul history of every living human on this planet. Dormant truths are awakening and activating. There is a new energetic signature of Love that is opening this planet to a shiny new future. And I believe I am the perfect placement of this new momentum in present time.

I embrace the idea of housing more Light, downloading ancient encodings, and receiving more Truths and affirm that August has birthed the perfect antidote for the static cling of the "old". I am able to see with new clarity; understand with greater capacity my role during these changing times. As a steward of the sacred that is renewing itself internally and externally I adhere to all Laws of Divinity. I bypass all the limitation of earth and manifest the Law of One -- the law that intends harmony.

Filled with gratitude I stand at the base of the mountain of creational maturity on my sojourn home to the Light and sing praise. Everything in the universe is opening to show what has been hidden. Thankfully I am anointed with the energy and wisdom that is surpassing all previous evolutionary possibilities. And so it is.

Thanks so much for confirming and affirming the experiences I seem to be sharing with you and others! There really have been times when I didn't know which reality I was in and lately I've wanted to stuff myself with food which is unusual for me! It is interesting though to watch these transitions. Enjoy the journey and see you in some dimension or other 8-) Michelle

Great post!!!
I am definitely in an interface, feeling a lot, understanding most of what I feel (thanks to you all as well!) but very challenged. 'Family/relationships', that's my main challenge now, there is where important works are happening in me/my world. Thank you for the shared information and advises, very useful reminders and teachings. Thank you/Much Love!!!

Thank you so much for affirming all that I have been feeling myself! I have also felt the need for more protein in my diet,and feel much so much better when I listen to my body. All the advice you've given is spot on for me, again many thanks for sharing :)
