we have a context for understanding these perfectly natural changes and
signs, we begin to relax into them and rejoice in the transformation
that’s happening within us. There are many things we can do to nurture
ourselves through the process. The most obvious is to relax, breathe
and let go.
Getting bodywork helps release toxins from the body.
Massage therapy, chiropractic and cranio-sacral therapy are especially
helpful. Drinking at least a gallon of purified water a day flushes out
the cells. Adjusting our schedule so we can sleep when needed is
crucial. Regular aerobic exercise helps distribute all that energy
we’re feeling. Yoga, t’ai chi, stretching and breathing exercises
regulate energy flow through the body. Daily meditation is also
recommended. So is dancing!
We can assist in our body’s
purification process by bathing in hot springs or sea salts,
participating in sweat lodge ceremony, enjoying a steam and/or sauna,
and possibly doing a supported cleanse.
Getting in physical touch
with nature is highly therapeutic. Walk, hike or jog in the park. Sit
or lie on the Earth. Go camping. Swim in a creek (if it’s clean). Hug a
tree. (Not kidding. It’s awesome.)
Eating lighter foods �?lots of
raw fruits and vegetables �?helps lighten the body. Eating organic and
whole foods provides higher nutrition and reduces intake of toxic
chemicals. For healing and support, try herbal supplements and
tinctures, gemstone and flower essences. Food-grade essential oils can
be taken internally and applied to the body. All of these connect us
more fully with the Earth Mother, who loves to support us.
helpful during this process to avoid or limit intake of mainstream
media such as network news and commercial programming, mainstream radio
news and talk shows, mainstream newspapers and magazines. These media
foster the old-paradigm programming we’re trying to release. They also
distract us from our purpose. Limiting our availability to the outside
world for an hour a day provides a dedicated time to tend to our
There are two important guidelines that will help each one make the changes in grace:
Listen to the body and inner spirit for cues about what they most need

touch with our inner guidance and find out what works for us as
individuals because everyone’s path is different.
non-judgment. As we continue to change from the inside out, the old
patterns in our cells may try to tell us that we’re wrong, that we’ve
done something bad, that we shouldn’t be feeling or experiencing this.
These are old tapes, part of the programming we’re releasing. No matter
what we do, no matter how surprised we are at what is released and how,
no matter how disappointed we are that we haven’t finished clearing
“that one�?yet, we need to let go of all judgment of self. Judgment of
others for their behavior is also non-productive.
We may make
requests of our “team�?�?the non-physical guides and teachers who are
assisting in our evolutionary process. We may ask them to work on us
directly to assist with the changes. We might ask for gentleness,
acceleration or whatever we most want. If the request serves the
highest good, it will be honored.
We’re not saying the Shift is the
only cause for the symptoms mentioned in this article. Some of the
symptoms could be serious. Anyone who needs medical attention should
From the Mayan prophecy teachings, we know that we are
experiencing an acceleration that will continue to speed up as we
approach the year 2012. The Shift we’re experiencing individually and
collectively will happen with or without our conscious participation.
Our commitment in this lifetime, as planetary servers, is to help
facilitate the changes.
As we heal our inner being, we may be

transformation process, perhaps by working with the Earth directly,
The more we clear ourselves and align with our
soul through meditation, the more ready we become to fulfill our
spiritual destiny, our life purpose. If you’ve been convinced all your
life that you came to do “something important�?in this lifetime but
still don’t know what it is, you may be about to find out.
