Making a Mind/Heart Shift

Free Energy Available…!

The intensity of the energies around at the moment is really something else!! Everywhere I see people struggling to get through the day, make ends meet, manage relationships, deal with health issues, keep things together, put that face on everyday and walk out the door looking like you’re not on the verge of insanity. Okay, that last one might just be me…but in any event, there are challenges aplenty and things are incredibly tough for many folk right now.

As I was lying awake last night, contemplating issues in my own life in the context of the powerful astrological alignments we’re currently undergoing, it became very clear to me that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves right now is the gift of an energy shift – and I don’t mean we must all get enlightened on the spot or there’s no hope – but we do need to take charge of what we’re doing with the forces that surround us and choose wisely when it comes to living them.

At times of great intensity we can very easily feed on that intensity, even when it’s ostensibly ‘bad’ stuff going on. I know when I’m doing this because I become broody and withdrawn, sullen and introspective. I used to spend months, even years doing it. Funnily enough it never really got me anywhere, though it took me a ridiculously long time to work that one out! Yesterday I did it again. It was hell. I should have known better but…well…sometimes we have to revisit our old selves to remember how much we’ve changed! Today I’ve resolved to do it differently hence my posting this.

Anyway, what struck me in the night is this: we’re all ‘plugged in’ to the same energy source, even though our circuits are wired differently. In astrological terms this means we’re all receiving the same planetary energy even though it weaves itself through our individual birth charts in specific ways. It’s a bit like the old adage that the one thing everyone has the same amount of is hours in a day: we all have access to and are receiving the exact same energy at the same time and it’s free – a free energy source! – so what are we going to do with it? We can’t avoid it, and we can’t destroy it (Einstein taught us that..), so we need to get to grips with it and shift it into an energy that’ll work for us rather than against us. Yesterday I was in full resonance with the heaviness and challenge of the prevailing vibration. Today I’m working on turning that around so the same energy becomes something entirely different in my life.

I often do this through movement – running, walking or dancing – but with my current physical limitations this option is less available to me. So instead I’m using a mind/heart shift: focusing my energy on my head, the physical location of my mind, and then bringing my awareness down to my heart, where, it seems to me, spirit dwells. I started in bed this morning and am doing it every time I remember today. It helps me to notice what’s really going on: the ‘buzz’ in my head, of too many thoughts with nowhere to go and nothing useful to say; anxious gloom and doom about a frightening future; thoughts of ‘poor me’, ‘I don’t deserve this’, ‘I’ll never survive this’ blah, blah, blah. The energy in my head is crazy-making, to be honest, and when left there produces sheer madness. But when I shift my awareness down to my heart the first thing I notice is space, quiet, no word or narrative, just peace. I’m still channelling the same energy from the cosmos that we all are, but somehow when it’s allowed to flow through the heart it produces something entirely different to when it’s brought down through the head. Which makes me realise that one of the reasons we may be struggling so much with this energy is that we’re plugging the wrong bit of ourselves into the grid! We actually need to bypass the head and make straight for the heart, not bypass the heart, which is so easy to do in our modern age, and make straight for the head to see what the mind makes of it!

So today I’m committing to shifting the energy so it works better for me, challenging though life feels right now! The more of us that can do this when we can, the better it will be for everyone. The energies all around us now need access to our hearts, not our minds. It is in the deepest recesses of our spirit that they need to do their work. And the more direct access we allow them the easier and gentler their work can be.

Just my thoughts for today… they were going to go in my journal, but I thought I’d share them here instead, in case they strike a chord…

Thank you Sarah for opting to share your deep and personal thoughts with so many of us. All I can say is DITTO!!!! Honesty is where it all begins for me, a deep look introspectively and then prayer and meditation. This journey is not for the faint of heart, we are all warriors of the Light who have chosen to bring Light to this world. And there are times when this is the hardest thing to do, but do it we must. You are such an inspiration and your messages are so heartfelt. :smitten:

Sarah, not only did your words strike a chord...they struck a whole symphony. To say I relate to every word you wrote today would be putting it mildly and I actually thought I was/am going insane with the torture my mind is putting me through since I woke this morning. Of course, the situation that has ignited this fire doesn't look like changing any time soon, but your advice on channeling from the head to the heart is what I am going to try... Thank you for posting this and it is so good to have you back. I so enjoy your posts and I truly wish you a continued speedy recovery.
Much love

Sarah, while pondering/feeling what you so eloquently described just the other day, I was shown that these juicy little blips that are now surfacing are like "polyps" in the subconscious. We've worked with them so many times, but these dredges have been squirrelled away by the ego to protect itself, and now that the Light/love is coming in so profoundly, nothing can remain hidden....and as the conscious and subconscious merge, we get to look at how we handle the energies....again.
Thank you for reminding us that we have a choice in how we do that.
Much love to your speedy recovery

Dear Sarah,

The energies yesterday were enough to make me say: STOP THE PLANET, I WANT TO GET OFF! I felt like I was going crazy, and that I just couldn't take one more day of this roller-coaster ride. I didn't want to live, I wanted to take the easy way out, but after reading an article on suicide and then after reading your article, I decided that I do need to stay here and finish what I started! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sarah!

What beautiful thoughts you have given me today. Your words are very real to me and I feel like you spoke to my heart.
Peace and love to you

Thank you, Sarah. Exactly what I needed to hear today!

Thank You so much for sharing Sarah!
Looks like it struck a chord with many of us
Bless You!

Thank you Sarah. This is exactly the solution I am using. There's no other way. My life changed when I discovered I didn't have to listen to my own mind. Any thought that is not LOVE is a lie and now that 'tape' in my head can, with devotion, be silenced. You're so right, sometimes we get back in to it unawares until insanity is exactly what it feels like!
That and remembering to LOVE YOURSELF through it.

Good of you to share. God Bless & Take Care of your dear, divine self.

Always on target!
Good health!

Thank you Sarah for choosing to share with us these words of wisdom instead of journalling them privately. Like the others who have commented, I can so relate to what you wrote and am going to practice your suggestion. Peace & love to you & so glad to see you back as I always enjoy your posts.
