You play a big part in this master shift, because you have a divine, ever-present connection to the Universe. Your shift in consciousness will allow the heavy energy on Earth to dissipate further, revealing a truly beautiful reality behind the veil. If you can relate to the following ideas, you might very well be experiencing a shift to a higher vibration…
11 Signs You May be Experiencing a Shift to a Higher Vibration:
A Strong Urge to Explore your IndividualityAs you go through a spiritual awakening, you will have an unrelenting desire to detach from limiting belief systems, and explore your own philosophies more. You may feel isolated and lonely at times, and others may call you crazy or too unconventional. You will probably find that your new values are in stark disagreement with the “norm,” and your newfound craving to walk your own path will lead you far away from mainstream ideals.
You Want to Give Up Harmful HabitsAt this point, you begin to realize that you cannot become your best self with toxic substances or toxic people weighing you down. To become a being of light, you will discover that drugs, alcohol, junk food, abusive relationships, and too much time around technology will severely deplete your energy.
Along your spiritual quest, you will become interested in feeding your body lighter, nutrient-rich foods, and staying away from negative people. You probably will become very sensitive to the radioactivity within phones, computers, TVs, etc.
Heavy Emotions Come to the SurfaceMost people think a spiritual awakening means an immediate removal of all the heavy energies, and a sudden transformation from a deep slumber to true enlightenment. However, a spiritual journey involves constant fluctuations as karmic energy comes to the surface and you work to rid your energy body of those experiences and emotions.
You may have deep wounds from your childhood, past relationships, and past lives that need a lot of attention and healing before you can move forward.
The World Around You No Longer Makes SenseWhen you go out to a restaurant, grocery store, or bank, you may start to see these things as meaningless and harmful to the greater purpose you have found in life. You start to become disinterested in material items, shopping, eating out, and doing all the “normal” things people do. You may start to find more solace and meaning in nature and exploring your creativity.
You Want to Change Jobs, or Even CareersOne of the biggest transformations people go through during vibrational shifts is a longing to get out of their current job, and into one that fulfills their true purpose. Many people even start their own businesses as life coaches, Reiki masters, or healers of some sort. They can’t spend another second in a soul-crushing job when they know they came here for a greater purpose.
You Feel Great Compassion for All BeingsDuring this time, you probably will feel an even stronger divine connection to Earth and all its beings. When you see pollution in the air, animals being tortured, or someone crying, you will likely experience a strong reaction and wish you could instantaneously heal everything and everyone on Earth.
As you learn to love yourself more, you will therefore be able to love others more, which will deepen your sense of empathy towards others.
You Want to Spend More Time AloneYou have become ultra-sensitive to others energies, and sometimes being around other people drains your own energy. You want to spend time exploring your creativity, and developing a relationship with yourself. If you find yourself wanting to go off on your own more, don’t worry; this is a normal part of tuning into your higher self.
You Understand that You Influence your Own RealityYou begin to realize that all your life, you unconsciously helped create whatever experiences you had up to this point. Now, you know that you can consciously create your reality, and bring about the experiences you actually want to have. You no longer feel encapsulated by a victim mentality, and understand that you and you alone can change your life. You start to take on full responsibility for your emotions, experiences, and actions.
You Experience More SynchronicitiesMost people would just call these coincidences, but upon awakening, you will come to know them as synchronicities. If you see repeating numbers frequently, such as 11:11, 2:22, etc, your spirit guides or angels are letting you know that you’re on the right path. If you have a song in your head and hear it on the radio immediately after, you are experiencing synchronicity as well.
As we keep moving forward, you will probably experience more synchronistic events in a variety of new and exciting ways!
You Focus More on Giving, Not ReceivingYou begin to realize that this planet needs more love, and figure out ways to use your own gifts and energy to spread it like wildfire. You may feel the urge to get rid of a lot of your belongings by giving them to charities, or you might want to volunteer more around your community.
During this transformation, you may decide that a minimalist lifestyle can serve you better in the long run. Having outward clutter causes inward clutter, and you realize how light you feel when you give rather than take.
You Live in the NowYou realize that the only time we have is now, and that the past and future are illusory concepts. By living in the now moment, you realize you can actively create your future in the present, rather than waiting for the future to come to you.

Becoming Your Parents
Generate Your Own Patterns
by Madisyn Taylor
Heredity plays a role in almost all human development, whether physical, mental, or emotional. We tend to look like our parents and are subject to the same sensitivities they have. We may even be predisposed to certain behaviors or preferences. As we grow older, we become increasingly aware of the traits that exist within us and the clear history of the traits of our mothers and fathers. Our response to this epiphany depends upon whether the inclinations, tendencies, and penchants we inherited from our forebears are acceptable in our eyes. We may honor some of these shared traits while rejecting others. However, there is no law of nature, no ethereal connection between parents and children, that states that the latter must follow in the footsteps of the former. We are each of us free to become whoever we wish to be.
When we accept that our parents are human beings in possession of both human graces and human failings, we begin to regard them as distinct individuals. And by granting mothers and fathers personhood in our minds, we come to realize that we, too, are autonomous people and in no way destined to become our relations. While we may have involuntarily integrated some of our parents’ mannerisms or habits into our own lives, conscious self-examination will provide us with a means to identify these and work past them if we so desire. We can then unreservedly honor and emulate those aspects of our mothers and fathers that we admire without becoming carbon copies of them.
Though many of the tempers and temperaments that define you are inherited, you control how they manifest in your life. The patterns you have witnessed unfolding in the lives of your parents need not be a part of your unique destiny. You can learn from the decisions they made and choose not to indulge in the same vices. Their habits need not become yours. But even as you forge your own path, consider that your parents’ influence will continue to shape your life—whether or not you follow in their footsteps. Throughout your entire existence, they have endeavored to provide you with the benefit of their experiences. How you make use of this profound gift is up to you.
