Soul Shifting And the Light Ascension Of Maybe 2012
January 24, 2009 by Akemi Gaines
As I wrote in this post, I just went through a major internal change that brought a series of external changes in my life. Several readers responded, with comments and emails, that they are experiencing something similar.
In this post, I’ll explain what I know at this time about this shift. Honestly, I do not know or understand everything about this – this is something totally new to this world, and I am learning as I go. Still I guess it is more beneficial for the highest good of all to share what I know now rather than withhold it.
(Note: If you are new to spirituality, or if you are here for more “practical” tips of personal development or entrepreneurship, this post may not be for you. I will be writing more of those posts, so don’t unsubscribe – just stay put, thank you ^_^)
The symptoms of the shift
1. You feel like a new person is in your body. And the shift is pretty abrupt.
I shared the kind of changes I’ve been through in my eating habits, the way I like to dress and live, and my new sense of joy and gratitude in that post. Please note that article was meant to be a personal sharing, not a comprehensive list of changes you may experience. Your changes may be different – you may feel the urge to take different direction in your career or personal life, or you may have a spiritual awakening.
The point is you sense changes from within. It’s not something your mind chose and posed on yourself. On the contrary, your mind is most likely resisting the changes. I embraced my shift quickly, but you may be reasoning things out like, “Well . . . but I am responsible to keep doing this. . .” “This is how I always have been. I’m not sure if I’d like to change. I am (insert your age here).” And yet, the change is there pushing you from within.
You may notice some changes in your body and physical health, too. For example, if I try to eat meat now, my stomach will reject it. I’ve also noticed difference in my sleep pattern.
2. Additionally, you may feel annoyed, frustrated, and stuck.
You are probably reasoning this as the discomfort of your mind with these changes, but there is a deeper reason. . .
What is soul shifting?
We have the soul – more accurately, we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. Typically, you have one soul and live with it for life. The soul defines the basic makeup of who you are, your strengths and challenges on the soul level, and the way you are growing spiritually.
When you reach a certain point in your spiritual evolution, however, your soul shifts. (Note: Actually, there are other kinds of soul shifts, which are explained into details in the linked post.)
Let me explain by analogy. Have you been to a tall tower building in which you need to change the elevator to go to the higher levels? The elevator you can take at the ground level only takes you to a certain floor, and then you must get off and switch to another elevator that takes you to higher level floors.
Same thing seems to be happening with our spiritual evolution. Some of us are getting to the point where our original soul has done its work. It’s been good, but you are done with it. So you switch to the new soul. This is, of course, a positive move.
Because the soul defines who you are, you sense a shift from within. You are, quite literally, a new person when you go through the soul shift.
The potential issues of this soul shifting
Although this soul shift is a good move, there are a few points things can go awry. First, the previous soul could get stuck and still be attached to your body. This is very annoying to the new soul. We need to send the first soul that has done its job to “the other side”.
If you sense this may be happening to you, please consider getting my Akashic Record Reading. Seriously. You know I don’t usually promote my service like this on this blog, and I am doing so now for a reason – this is a big deal that you definitely benefit from professional assistance.
The new soul is typically a fresh soul that has never been incarnated in the physical body. I don’t know if this is the rule, but this is what I’ve been observing. I guess there must be a big pool of souls that have been watching this physical plane on Earth for eons of time but never incarnated.
Because it is such a fresh, clean soul, it can be a target of attack from the negative forces. This is another thing I check and clear in my reading.
The relationship of the first and second souls
So far, I have read several cases of this kind of soul shift, including myself. I know this is way too few to draw any significant generalization. I still think it may be worth to share the pattern I’ve seen.
It seems there is a certain relationship, an agreement, between the first soul and the second soul. The second soul chose the first soul to go in first, and it’s been watching your life. The second soul is usually very similar to the first soul in terms of soul’s origination group and training. (If you haven’t had my Akashic Record Reading, you may be going “Huh? What is soul’s origination group and training?” I touched this topic in my post on life purpose – please read the comments, too)
So, while you are a new person when this soul shift happens to you, the confusion is minimal. Good grief.
The planetary level shift and your soul shifting
Our Earth is going through a major shift. I am not talking about the superficial changes, although many of the changes in people’s way of thinking, feeling, and behaving are stimulated by this big planetary shift. I don’t know exactly what this big shift is about and what the world will be like when the shift is complete. I don’t think anyone really knows. I do sense it will be a completely new world.
Our individual soul shifting is stimulated by this big planetary shift. Let me use another analogy. Each of us have been pushing our boats on the beach. This is our personal and spiritual development effort. Now the big tide is coming, and some of the boats that have been pushed far enough are suddenly floating. From here on, it’s a completely different game. We, who have been through the soul shifting, are sailing.
Is this some kind of elitist statement? I don’t think so. We have done our work. And by showing others how much fun we are having once our boats are floating on the water, we encourage them to push their boats further, and they may soon join us in sailing.
So let’s embrace this grace of the big shift. And look around to find others who have also started sailing. Those with enhanced awareness of their spiritual nature, with fresh sense of love, freedom, and abundance.
Light Ascension and year 2012
The planetary shift is called Light Ascension, or just Ascension. Our individual spiritual evolution, including the soul shifting, is also called Ascension. Our soul’s vibration rate is ascending (increasing).
Is this related to year 2012? Does the Earth ascend in 2012? I don’t know. My spirit guides tell me there will be a significant change in 2012, but not everyone will experience it. Which makes sense to me. I don’t think everyone is ready for this – many people haven’t even started pushing their boats. Will the tide be big enough to float even those boats sitting in the far back?
Still there will be a huge shift in or around 2012. In fact, the shift has been going on already, as we’ve been discussing in this post. I think the planetary shift is coming like the exponential function. It started long ago, but in the beginning, the change was so gradual and minimal that most people didn’t notice. Then some sensitive and highly conscious people noticed, but most people ignored it.
Like in exponential function, however, there comes a time when the change becomes big, and from there, it keeps growing rapidly. Now it’s hard to ignore. It doesn’t take years of full time discipline to notice there is something going on, and so we, the “ordinary” people (by that I mean pretty much everyone who is not Dalai Lama) have the urge to do something – be it meditation or yoga or psychic reading and clearing.
Ascension and our concept of time
Although I don’t really know what is going on, I’ll take one step further and dare to say the Ascension has something to do with time.
In this three dimensional world, time flows one-way in a linear mode. There is no time like that on the spiritual plane, however. So retro-causality is possible there, and I have observed it. For example, when a person orders my reading and clearing, they may experience the change even before I actually do the work – provided they are serious about taking it. The spirit knows they will accept the clearing, so they do it, and it works in all ways of time.
If the Earth is ascending to the fourth dimension, time as we know it now will change. Does this mean we can move through time freely back and forth? How will that look like? I don’t know. But this is another reason I think that not everyone is ready for this.
Think about it. If you can move back to the past, what would you be doing? Are you going back to the time that you think you made a mistake and fix it? That is what many people would be doing, and so they would be forever stuck in the past. This is obviously no good. One-way flow of time helps us to move on and keep learning our lessons. It is designed this way for a good reason.
But what if you could take time travel just like any spacial travel? Let’s say you are done with learning your life lessons, you have accepted everything without judgment, so you have no intention to go back and redo your past. You just go to any point of time because you want to, like you go to places you want to go.
A possibility. Again I don’t really know.
Ascension to Lightbodies
I have a few more things to say about Ascension, mainly about what may happen to our physical body afterward. In short, we will have a new way of existence called Lightbodies.
I need more time to discuss this topic of Lightbodies, however. For one, I really don’t know much about it. Also, I’m concerned it may scare some people. I myself am excited about this option and willing to learn more about it, but I also know those who are still so tightly attached to their body may be scared.
I’d love to hear what you think about this post – please leave your comment. Thank you. (Photo by Edward B.)
Update: This topic of Ascension and soul shifting is something quite new to this planet and
I’ll be writing moreI have written more about it. Please check the category Ascension if you are interested to read more. Also, I’m no longer responding to the comments to this specific post because I think I have answered to them by the various posts I have written later in this Ascension category. You are still welcome to leave your message and carry on the discussion. Thank you.
