The Great Shift in Consciousness and the Light Vs Dark Game

Share this

When you experience the Great Shift in Consciousness firsthand, part of what will shift in you is your perception of the battle between the Dark and the Light. You will begin to perceive it as more of a game. (And it’s at that point that “The Game” finally begins to change.) But before I discuss more of this Light vs. Dark Game, I need to bring up a post I read earlier this week on another blog.

The blogger gave an “energy summary report” for the first 3 months of 2012. Basically, she wrote that because lightworkers are taking positive steps forward, there’s lots more negativity that will be unleashed on them by “Team Dark” in the remaining months of 2012. Because it’s about the final battle for humanity and the Earth, there will be more attacks aimed specifically at lightworkers, she writes. The best way the “Team Dark” derails lightworkers from their purpose is to place obstacles in front of them in the form of negative people in their close environment. She then goes on to give an example of neighbors arguing outside her home into the night one night in the month of March. (I have also been saying that things will get worse before they get better–but for different reasons and using different terminology.)

I understand where she’s coming from because I used to think those things as well. I used to think that some people close to me were being unduly influenced by “Team Dark.” (What a frightening position to take on, and besides, it keeps the battle going!)

But then after dealing with those same people by following through with my higher self’s guidance rather than my normal approach (of avoidance, annoyance, even trying to justify myself using new age logic, whatever…), I had some truly amazing experiences that proved to me beyond a doubt that “Team Dark” is actually catalyzing for me the fastest way to my growth and expansion (i.e. Ascension and shift in consciousness.)

I remember the day this became so clear to me; it was a warm Spring day in 2004. I remember sitting down on the lawn of Morgan Hill High School after my older daughter’s swim meet (she was 9 yrs. old at the time) and crying. My capricious daughter and her equally unpredictable Dad had already left the meet, people were packing up and leaving the grounds and all I could do was just sit there and cry.

I will not share the event here because it will almost take a book to explain it. (How do you explain the depth of an epiphany, the emotions, the relationships, the before and after situation so that it makes a real impact for the reader…in a few paragraphs?) In fact, my first editor (a top-rate editor of spiritual books) crossed out the pages in my memoir where I wrote about this event because I don’t think it fit into her belief system. (Needless to say, I had no choice but to get myself new editors after that.)

Anyway, my epiphany showed me that the “difficult” people in my life were helping me fulfill my higher purpose by putting me through challenging situations that would teach me amazing things about truth, about unconditional love and about the deeper story of the Dark vs. the Light on this planet.

Furthermore, this event was doubly meaningful to me because a couple years earlier, I had been asked by the Counsel of Light to share what I would learn about how life on this planet really works and now with this epiphany, I had another significant and amazing thing to share, something original that was more than just a repeat of what’s currently available in the world! Anyway, that one event changed the way I viewed and interacted with the difficult people in my life forever. (Which allowed for more cooperation, more grace and ease, and more transformation.)

Growth and expansion (“ascension”) is possible when you ask your higher self for guidance regarding the challenging situation you’re in, muster up enough courage and confidence in the guidance to follow through with it promptly and consistently, and then notice the amazing things that happen and the insights you receive as a result of your following through. (My “how-to” eBook on 2012 helps activate this process in you quite quickly.)

I mean, you can even get to a point where you can have fun with this “dark” vs. “light” gig, you can begin to see it as sort of a game. And when you have learned how to play the game (“the game of duality,” as it’s sometimes called), you have become the master of your life.

At that point, The Game’s pretty much over…and it’s time for a new kind of Game. (One that fits into the Golden Age.)

Team Dark catalyzes events that we are meant to learn incredible things from. It’s much more empowering to view it this way than to see it as an unending battle. (Aside from the fact that it’s true that it’s a temporary situation we chose for our own personal growth.)

We’re wondering why nothing we want is happening around us…But this is the piece that’s missing in many people’s experiences. The faster we get this piece, the faster the Great Shift in Consciousness and the changes we all want will manifest.

    You nailed this one! I wholeheartedly agree with how you look at “The Game” that is being played out right now. I have had my own experiences with this and thankfully, like you, I got in on this early and have been able to turn my experiences (dark as they may be) into some really powerful enlightenment awareness’s. I believe that “issues” in our lives are NOT the experiences, but how we approach the experiences in our lives.
    The concepts of Polarity and Duality are slowly making their last attempts here on planet earth…causing ‘the Game” to continue in a very powerful way. So, I have chosen to look at this as the Olympics…where the best of us are becoming more empowered to get the GOLD “ie: Golden Age”.
    You are a powerful teacher for those who are truly ready to BREAK FREE of this darkness that continues to plague our universe….but there is LIGHT at the far side of the tunnel…should we choose to step forth and embrace what ALL OF IT is here to teach us and wake us up!

      Thanks for your great insights Ali! I like your Olympics allegory, and I have to say that we will, all of us, attain that “Golden” status, whether it is in this lifetime, or for some who choose to leave, in a future one. I hope this article lightens up things for people. While you still play the game, you still keep going (more than ever), knowing these things will help make it a bit easier to attain a successful outcome.

    I agree totally with not avoiding the negative people in our lives and that they are what in fact gives us the experience we need to grow spiritually… great post!

      Thanks Naomi! Unless you live by yourself in a cave, you can’t avoid learning experiences involving other “challenging” people.

    Christine, I LOVE this post and as you know, have had similar experiences and perceptions. I just read this line last night in the book “Nine Deadly Venoms:

    “The point of conflict has been placed before you so YOU can make the difference.”

    That speaks volumes, doesn’t it! Beautiful post!

    Hi Christine

    Very inspiring post..thank you! I look back now and realise that the ones who made my spiritual muscles grow were the energy vampires and they were of course in my life as my catalysts for change. I did wonder at one stage why these vampires had come into my life…and the penny dropped and the rest is history. The Divine is amazing and I say bring on the Golden Age. I will share that the Ho’oponopono Prayer is the saving Grace in my life. Love is the answer. Blessings to you.

    I am very much in agreement with this topic as a practicing reiki master I have been experiencing this Team Dark since the beginning of the year.My method of dealing with it is through meditation,which has the power to neutralize the dark energies around me.I actually feel these energies when they are present also sometimes get strange smell,but use mantras to clear my space,and very soon I feel the peace come in.I felt the shift within myself from the beginning of this year and it has been guiding me to release and embrace what I should for my higher good.

    Hi guys
    Thank you for this great post , this has been one of the biggest lessons I have been learning over the last good few years, and like you have been saying, the knowledge you recieve from really sticking with the lessons is wonderful indeed!!! I def agree with Ali its not just the experiences we have but what you choose to take from them that can make all the difference!! I remember the times i just wanted to move away from challenging characters and i must say if you’re at the point where you are being bombarded to the point where you lose yourself in the game then it is a must to take a time out just till you find your yourself and the energy to proceed with the journey but when you get there its def worth the effort!! Now im so gratetful for those lessons but also a bit wiser as how to interect with people i find difficult! But yes I realise everything i have learned through these relationships has been like a preparation for what has been happening in the world on a bigger scale and therefore I am very hopeful for us as a collective because I know if we can overcome the individual experiences we can move forward together too !! thanks againxxx
