Let's Shift Again!

Shifting from a third dimensional to a fifth dimensional consciousness is a big deal. It means that we are evolving individually and as a species of beings. It’s an exciting time to be alive, an historic time to be alive, even with the system breakdowns and upheavals that are part of a transition of this magnitude. And it’s the perfect time for Lightworkers to remember two important things:

1) This is not the first time the human race has worked on increasing our overall vibrational level. We’ve done this before. And done it well.

2) We asked to be here, we wanted to be here, and we probably stood on line and begged to be part of this momentous project. So working on raising our individual vibrational levels is job one for us because (a) it will help us get through the Shift more easily as we adjust our energy levels upward, and (b) it helps those around us increase their vibrational levels as well. Positive energy is quickly and easily transferred from person to person.

Let’s talk a little history. This Shift has been talked about for as long as I’ve been studying metaphysics, and that’s well over 30 years. Back in the 1970’s and 80’s, I was scared to death about the Shift because of what was being written about it—states and coastlines falling into the oceans, all the advice about becoming survivalists and learning to live off the land. The predictions about the Shift back then weren’t pretty, they were, in fact, catastrophic, but they never came true.

And that’s the way of predictions—they are only predictions—people change and therefore outcomes change, and that’s what happened to us in the late 1980’s. We stepped up. Case in point: The Harmonic Convergence on August 16, 1987. The Harmonic Convergence was the world’s first globally synchronized meditation, and thanks to just a couple of hundred thousand people, who combined their collective thoughts and focused on peace that day, we evolved as a species.

August 16, 1987 is the day that peaceful energy became more abundant then warlike energy. And because of that very specific change in our overall energy output, the Harmonic Convergence culminated with an increase in the vibratory level of the human race. And thanks to that particular up tick in frequency, we changed our future, meaning that what we’re experiencing today and what we’ll continue to experience as we complete the Shift, isn’t anywhere near as devastating as what was previously predicted and expected. Yes, we will still have catastrophes, and there will continue to be breakdowns in business and government systems, but nothing, nothing, like what was originally predicted.

In 1987, we came together, connected our thoughts and our intentions for peace, and we made a difference for ourselves and for our planet. In 1987, we got a little taste of our power. We learned that as powerful as we are individually, we are oh so much more powerful when we put our collective focus on something. We seized and used our collective power to make a difference and we did that by focusing our thoughts, words and actions on peace. Even if you weren’t part of the meditations that day, if you were on planet, you were affected by feelings of peace and your vibrational level rose. And keep in mind that it only took a couple of hundred thousand people to effect this epic change for humankind.

And here we are, fast approaching the much-heralded date of 11-11-11, a date that many of us believe is significant in the on-going evolution of the human race as we continue our Shift to a higher consciousness. It is widely believed that beginning on 11-11-11, worldwide political, economical, social and spiritual changes will take place and evolve faster then they ever have before. Knowing what the human race accomplished back in 1987 with just a couple of hundred thousand people focusing on peace and change, it makes sense that we will make progress much more quickly as more and more of us are awake, recognizing that we are connected, and cognizant of our power to collectively effect positive change.

How do we effect change and use our power? According to my Guide, Gilbert, there are many things that we can we do each and every day to raise our own vibrations, help others increase their vibrations, create positive energy, and decrease negativity energy every day, starting with the following:

Step #1: Watch what you think, what you say, and what you do at this very important time in history. We are already excellent manifestors subconsciously; so just imagine what we can do on a conscious level as we start putting our attention firmly and with focus on watching our thoughts, words, and actions.

Step #2: Stop judging other people. Gilbert says that when we spend time judging each other, we become mini power plants spewing negative energy out into the atmosphere.

Step #3: Be positive in the face of adversity. Becoming accomplished at being positive in the face of adversity has dual benefits when it comes to increasing vibrations: By being positive, we increase our positive energy output; and by examining our circumstances and taking positive action instead of complaining, we will churn out lessnegative energy. Being positive in the face of adversity is all about taking charge of our spiritual growth, and that is something that each one of us has the power to make happen.

Step #4:Look for ways to bring more light to the planet, including but not limited to, the following…

o Stop gossiping—it is not good for anyone.

o Stop being rude-- it spews negativity into the atmosphere.

o Stop looking for underlying insults in what other people say to you and stop insulting other people. All are on their individual path and you don’t know what it is. Just because others may not meet your current standards does not make them wrong.

o Start looking for ways to be nice to people—for example…

  • Greeting people in a friendly way. For example, saying hello, good morning, good afternoon, and good evening, when you see people.
  • Saying nice things when appropriate. If you can say something nice to someone in a sincere way, then do it. Look for things that you admire about others and give them a compliment. Both the person saying it and the person receiving the kind words will benefit with a burst of positive energy.
  • Holding the door open for someone when they need it. This is a simple and easy act that takes no time yet carries a positive energy bang.
  • Giving someone else the parking spot when two of you are trying to get it at the same time.

Step #5: Smile! A simple smile has a huge impact when it comes to increasing our output of positive energy. How so? Because smiles are contagious. You smile at someone, they can’t help but smile back, and then they pass it on. With very little effort, we can all become “Metaphysical Johnny Appleseed’s,”and spread positive energy via smiles to everyone we meet.

Lightworkers, the time is now for us to recognize our individual and collective power. We have the power to raise our own vibrational level AND the vibrational level of the human race. Together, we can make the remainder of the Shift to a fifth dimensional consciousness easier on us all. Let’s Shift again!

Beautifully written Sherri. Amazingly I am starting to feel the joy and exhilaration of the shift which finally gives me an understanding of WHY we all stood in line to be here for this. I am grateful for the healing and work that has gotten me to this point and I am excited to see where we are going. Thank you Dear One for your leadership, guidance and support during this time. Much Love

Your thoughts and findings are truly inspirational. I have learned so much from you and look forward to your next book!

Sherri: The suggestions which you’ve provided for effecting change are practical and straightforward. When taken seriously, even with relapses, they bring out positive behaviours, thoughts, and feelings. It’s really an eternal win. I couldn’t help but smile about circling in the parking lot; I’ve seen that phenomenon, and it’s more endurable with a sense of humor.

Stessily, THANK YOU for taking the time to read my article and write this comment. You are so right about relapses--two steps forward and one step back still puts us ahead. Go to my website, www.SherriCortland.com, and take a look at the talk I gave at the Awakening to Higher Consciousness Conference--you'll crack up when you see my personal parking lot story!!

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you for reading my articles! You're a Lightworker--you're waking up--it's no surprise that you "know" a lot of what's in the articles because it's in your DNA. We probably stood next to each other "on line!" Thank you for your feedback, it means so much to me.

Hi Samantha,

Thank you for reading my books! Those steps are "simple" but hard to do. I think if we all focus on treating others and our planet the way that we want to be treated, we will make a lot of progress very quickly!

Hi Carolyn! Thank you! I've been working on "mastering" these steps for over a year and never thought of posting them in my house! I think I'll follow your lead and post them on my bathroom mirror so I read them first thing each morning, and maybe in my car, too, for those times when a car pulls out in front of me!!

Hi Suzanne, If you go to SherriCortland.com, you will find the transcript of the talk I gave in June at the Awakening to Higher Consciousness Conference--lots in there for lightworkers. You can also download the first chapters of both of my books for free. There are lots and lots of wonderful books out right now about the shift. Go to Ozarkmt.com and you'll find several. Also, go to MarySoliel.com--she wrote a wonderful book about synchronicity and she also has several hubs you can read. Michael Dennis also has some wonderful hubs. Hope this helps--and...you can always email me at SCortland@cfl.rr.com. Best advice I can give you though, is to go within and meditate and listen to what your higher self has to say. That little voice within knows exactly what we're supposed to be doing and gives the best guidance!! Much love, Sherri

Sherri, I smile all the time now. It truly is contagious. Everyone treats me with such vibrancy and respect, just because I smile. When I am not in a smiley mood, I can readily see the difference. It prompts me to quickly take control of my mood and change it. Easy to do, too, with a smile. Little kids are the best. I smile at them and they jump into my arms. You are a mountain of inspiration.

Hi Terri! My Guides Jeremy and Gilbert both say that the best thing we can do to raise our vibrations and pump out the positive vibrations is to smile! I'm right there with you, girlfriend, smiling at everyone I see!

Inspirational, as always. We need to be reminded as often as possible to watch our thoughts and attitude - it has such a profound effect on all those around us. It's amazing how quickly the world around you will adjust to your expectations. Be responsible - be positive.

Keep the reminders coming.

Thank you, Heidi--I'll keep the reminding--starting with reminding myself, because as simple as these things are, they are work and not easy!

Good tips on raising the vibrational frequency. Consistent practice of your techniques will bring about changes on the cellular structural level. At which point, it is no longer work, it is simply the way we live.

Beautiful hub Sherri. Thank you for sharing this with us. It is true that our thoughts, emotions, and actions affect the world in unimagined ways. Just like you, I am a firm believer that we can raise the vibrations of this planet with our positive intentions. I believe that we have the power to do great things in this world.
