How do you know when you are approaching a significant breakthrough? There are 3 main signs that you can look for externally and internally. The difficult in pinpointing these signs often lies in how they are expressed: in balanced opposition.
The universe is a finely tuned balance of all things, at all times. And so, when a breakthrough is near, everything is amplified. This means that you can experience confusion along with clarity, heightened emotion along with detachment, calm along with urgency, and so forth.
A breakthrough is an enhancement, and as humanity is primed to burst into a new reality, the foreshadow of this upcoming breakthrough can feel both bumpy and calm at the same time. It has been said by many that the planet has been experiencing steady waves of energy in these last few years. It is important to remember that these waves, like the ocean, create an ebb and flow.
Ebb and flow are in balance, as one cannot occur without the other, therefore they are merely different perceptions of the same concept. Same goes with all concepts kept in balance. Ebb is flow, clarity is confusion, urgency is calm. When you can recognize each of these energies as two sides of the same coin, then you are ready to cash in for your breakthrough.
The equinox is the perfect time to do just that.
So, how do you spot these breakthrough energies? Look for the natural cycles moving between what many may feel to be polar opposites.
Many of you reading this message may find yourself moving between states of high clarity and focus into state of confusion, mistrust and not knowing. The first step to understanding what is happening is to realize that this is a natural cycle. The reason it is coming to your attention now is because, like all cycles, the ebb and flow here has sped up.
Understand that both clarity and confusion are states of connection. When you are connected and fully in tune with your spiritual body, you feel clarity; when you are disconnected, you feel confusion. During this time, humanity is climbing a staircase of Ascension, and each time you step up one stair, you are slightly out of body. Then, as you rest upon that stair, you are brought back into unison. And, on and on it goes. You normally don’t notice this process so much, because long pauses are taken at each stair. However, when a breakthrough approaches, a rapid climbing takes place, and you can move up several stairs a day, bouncing quickly between these two states of connection.
To find your way through this journey, try to remain hyper-aware of the now. This can be done by saying internally what you are engaged in at the moment, “I am walking, I am opening a cupboard, I am grabbing a cup, I am putting the cup on the counter, etc.” As this connection process continues to speed up, this hyper-awareness of the now will be your best navigation guide.
Second, look for enhanced expression of emotions in yourself and others. As a breakthrough is near and the energy increases, it acts like a magnet to draw out all emotional energy. During this time, there will be some people experiencing very strong emotions, as well as others who act as if nothing fazes them. Again, these are two sides of the same coin. Both are equally valuable paths to understanding yourself, why you feel what you feel, where your emotions come from, and if those emotions are still serving your highest needs today.
There is nothing wrong with emotions, they contain a massive inventory of valuable information. The challenge occurs when emotions overrun your life, and cause you to act on pure emotional impulse. Think of emotions as your own personal movie, they provide you with your life context, your perspective, and lead you to the next important segment of your story. Those are all helpful on your life path. However, like a movie, you are meant to experience your emotions through imagination, discussion, healthy release, and other such methods. But, you are not meant to live your emotions as if you are the movie itself.
When a breakthrough is near, it can become very difficult for some people to separate their emotions from their reality, thus causing rants, blame, victimhood, and other such patterns to be expressed much more intensely. If you are around someone who is experiencing heightened emotions in such a way, give them space to process, do not engage directly in their emotional movie, but instead encourage them to release their emotions safely, by writing, watching a movie, reading a book, taking a walk, visiting a therapist, or any other way that would be an appropriate release for them as an individual.
Third, you will feel the energetic momentum building. As humanity continues forward, you will feel a crescendo of energy. This energy can be felt of in one of two ways. One will be freeing and joyful, a like making it to the end of a long race. The other may feel overwhelming, urgent, or stressful. These are two different expressions of alignment. When you are aligned with your life path and God’s path for you (God’s will), you will feel free, joyful and in sync with life. Synchronicities will pop up again and again, circumstances will work themselves out, and there is an overall ease to any experience.
When you feel overwhelmed and stressful, you are trying to exert your control on your life. You are forgetting to trust in yourself and the path that you already set in motion. You are forgetting to trust in God/ Spirit/The Universe. When you are not in harmony with your life path, you still feel that momentum building, but push against it with fearful thoughts, such as: that it will not happen, not be want you want, not be when you want, not be enough, will happen for everyone else not you, etc.
When you are out of alignment, you can experience things not going well, being clumsy, miscommunication, frustration with you wanting things to be your way (even if you cannot recognize it). If you just got frustrated with that last statement, then you are not in alignment.
Another way to represent God’s will is the idea of unconditional acceptance. This is more than simply accepting everyone else for who they are, this is also accepting events, places, experiences, situations and everything else as it is. No need to drive aggressive in traffic, it is what it is. No need to be angry with the wait for your dinner, it is what it is. No need to track down that package, it will arrive at the right time. No need to interject to tell someone what to do, they are who they are. No need to force a conclusion to occur, it will take place in God’s time.
When you start from a place of acceptance, then you are automatically in alignment, and will intuitively know what to do or say. But, when your pride tells you that you are entitled to something now, or that you know better, then you will find yourself trying to push against the very momentum here to assist you.
All in all, a breakthrough is an expanding balloon of energy, enhancing every aspect of life, so that it can be felt in extreme. In the extremes of connection, emotion, and alignment, you will learn about yourself. That learning is the impetus for a personal breakthrough. When millions or billions of personal breakthroughs occur simultaneously, it is indeed the large-scale transition shift of the ages.
