As we grow in this world we go through shifts at different points in our lives. These can be outer world energy shifts or even personal energy shifts.
Outer world energy shifts are shifts that occur in the celestial bodies and affect us here on Earth. Those are very different from personal energy shifts as personal energy shifts are merely shifts within our own personal energy fields. These kinds of things are unique to each of us and only affect our being as a whole and not other people around us.
Tony Crisp has in many ways outlined this personal energy shift in his own way through his book “Every Seven Years You Change, Does Your Personality Change Too?” This book goes over how we all seem to shift into a different perspective and sense of being every seven years. Who you were at the age of 14 is not who you are now at 21 and so forth into things. Each cycle or shift is meant to force us to grow in specific ways and that is something we cannot avoid.
Each ‘seven years’ can be broken down further into different trials and obstacles we must overcome which is in many ways quite reassuring. Those who are able to make it past the age of 84 and onwards are capable of truly mastering these shifts. While you might not see it currently where you are on your life path, these shifts are our guides working to push us closer to where we need to be and allowing our higher self to move closer and closer to proper alignment.
As this species, we have managed to emerge beyond the level of awareness of other living forms of this earth. We have developed complex language and enormous curiosity and creativity. But the shortness of our life is a big factor in our experience of ourselves. I was shown that this shortness of life is really important for us. This because an essential part of the mystery of the universe is death. Of course, what I am about to say will probably be dismissed by many but death I have seen as an immense digestive and absorbing of our whole life experience, and in doing so offers integration and upgrade and from that a new life.
As I repeat often, “No plant or creature grows from a dead seed, and each living seed carries within it all the past gathered from all its forebears. So, the seed in your mother’s womb is as old as and even older than humankind, and you carry that wisdom or memories in you. But in this life, you developed a new brain, and the memories, education, and programming you gathered this time are what you built your personality from, but beneath that is a very ancient self.
Therefore, death is an enormous key to understanding the universe and life. Understanding death means that we become capable of letting go of ourselves, of delivering ourselves, of being able to give ourselves away to the mystery underlying our existence. The importance of this is because, if what has been said above is correct, then death is at the very center of the mystery of life. It is at the foundation of our physical being. It is behind the urge that leads parents to a sort of death in giving themselves to the new being that emerges, to parents giving of themselves to their offspring.
The cycles of shifting are broken down into 12 areas if you do not include the mastering level at the very end. While not everyone will be able to reach that master level, those who make it close are truly gifted. In this world we go through so much and being able to remain strong and allow your inner voice to guide you is a feat most are not capable of achieving.
