3 Ways to Keep Up with the Planetary Shift

Many people sense a planetary shift is going on. There is global economic instability, climate change, increased solar activity, unusual magnetic field changes and more frequent occurrences of both extreme weather and geological events. On December 21, 2012, there will be the great alignment of Earth with the center of the Milky Way, which happens just once every 25,000 years. The date also marks the end of the Mayan calendar. Some fear the end of the world as we know it, while others perceive a shift into higher consciousness is unfolding that a more heart-based world is being born while Old World structures are falling apart.

Most people don’t know exactly what’s going on, but know that something is indeed going on. Many of us also sense a shift internally and perceive that time is accelerating, finding it difficult to keep up at times. We’re constantly bombarded by an ever-increasing number of choices. Emotions peak and ebb to extremes in the span of hours, even minutes. Uncertainty seems to be on the rise about our personal direction as well as that of the world.

Amid the stress and chaos, there is increasing awareness of our global interconnectivity. A momentum is building among those who want to come together to make a difference, give back to society and take care of each other and our planet. Social networking is bringing people together, and there is both an energetic spark in the air and a growing sense of hope that something new will emerge.

Scientific research shows these flickers of hope are qualities of the heart and spirit. The heart feelings of emotional well-being, care and compassion are enhanced by:

  • Spiritual practices like meditation and prayer that connect us to something greater than ourselves
  • Heart connection with others close friendships within and outside the family
  • Gathering with others frequently for uplifting purposes such as church, social causes, etc.

We call these actions that help nurture us emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually “aspects of heart-based living.” As the planetary shift continues and people experience greater stress, overstimulation, overload and stress-induced physical and mental health problems, the imperative to shift toward heart-based living increases.

As life’s pace continues to accelerate, we’ll be presented with even more choices and possibly have less time to make them. The good news is that when we approach our choices with sincere heart intent, it’s easier to access the intuition and energy required to shift quickly into the most beneficial mental and emotional states. We have a choice to ride the waves of change or be caught in the undertow.

Thank you for this article. It is encouraging that 2012 is no longer perceived as the end of the world, and all that doom and gloom. There is definitely a collective consciousness that man can apply for the greater good of the world.

Obscurely, Tom Y comment is not available to read. However, I would think as I read other comments that the Tom Y text suggested that one:
-Cites scientific studies when they are really scientifically done
-Knows that globalization and not alignmenent of planets is a cause of being " bombarded by an ever-increasing number of choices"
-Has heard that stress management has been replaced by abother fad called resilience development.
Really, are we ever going to move away from alarmist myths...and the stone age ?
