I am noticing, and noticing again, the amazing shifts that are following The Shift of 2012. We've talked already about how some of you struggled and wailed through the end of last year... and now you're moving along like gangbusters, facing your life in a new way.
Others of you are just starting to feel the affects of the Shift NOW, as in right now, this month. What I am seeing most here is folks who are breaking karma—actually trouncing long established patterns and saying "no more" to these patterns in their lives.
If this is you, you may be:
• Moving to another location
• Moving to another living situation
• Quitting a job that no longer serves
• Ending a romantic relationship
• Ending a habit or addiction
• Ending a habitual thought pattern
• Breaking off relationships that are toxic and negative
• Breaking away from ways of living that are dull, numbing, boring
• Refusing to accept situations that are low vibration
• Turning away from low vibration media
With all this refusal, space is created for a new kind of living. This may include:
• Stepping into your own personal spiritual practice
• Finally understanding who you really are
• Accepting the truth of yourself as Divine
• Allowing yourself to live without fear
• Allowing yourself to expand into who you can be
• Loving yourself
• Loving all those around you
• Feeling gratitude for the smallest things
• Being in awe of everything
It feels like, no matter what stage you're at: the creation or destruction, the Kali or Shiva, the wave building or the wave receding, we are moving in an deeper, more magical, more mystical way—we are moving in our true natures, or toward our true natures. Celebrate this! Rejoice! It's been a long time coming.
How to know if you've reached bliss? Sometimes bliss comes as total body-mind euphoria, an ecstatic altered state, what we think of when we hear the phrase "blissed out." Other times, bliss is a smaller wave of yummy, feel-good style happiness. Here, fifteen sure-fire signs you're there.
15 Signs of Bliss
1.) Your jaws are relaxed; you can easily smile. You may have trouble NOT smiling!
2.) You laugh freely. In fact, you may find yourself laughing without any reason.
3.) It's easy to close your eyes, yet you feel alert.
4.) Your body may tingle or vibrate, especially down your spine, neck or head.
5.) You have a feeling of expansiveness in the chest
6.) You have a feeling of lightness or floating; there is no sensation of heaviness.
7.) You feel deeply relaxed, yet in a highly alert state.
8.) Your heart feels at peace.
9.) You feel safe in the environment you are in, no matter where this is.
10.) You feel expanded in your connection to the world and to the space around you.
11.) You feel a rush that is not an adrenal rush, but an euphoric rush.
12.) You don't feel physical pain, or your pain is lifted or blocked.
13.) You feel a sense of divine grace, of being in the presence of the universal divine.
14.) You experience a state of altered consciousness; an ecstatic state.
15.) You may experience bliss for a few minutes, hours, days or an entire lifetime.
Bliss may last for a moment, or it may last for lifetime. It may return again and again, even when it's not sought out or expected. Extreme experiences of ecstatic bliss may result in an altered state that changes a person forever.
"All the mystics, the great spiritual teachers: Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed—they felt bliss all the time. Those beings existed in a state of never-ending bliss. Infants, children, the elderly, the mentally disabled, those who have been enlightened by great sacrifice or pain, they also may exist primarily in a state of bliss," said Dr. Steve Koc.
Bliss is a state that is removed from our current reality, but it doesn't have to be so, he said. "To be alive is to hold the possibility of bliss in the next moment."
Breathe in. Hold. Breathe out. Hold. Close your eyes and do it again.
This is the first step to a happy life.
Breathe! Feel better! Be blissfully happy, even for just a moment. Going into that sacred space changes everything, and helps you to move forward.
