Why Expansion of Consciousness triggers the Sh*t out of us

“Man, I feel like sh*t again. Does this ever stop?” When we go through our expansion of consciousness, we sometimes feel like being caught up in the neverending story. In line with the intense energetic frequency shifts we experience on the planet we go through deep waves of exhaustion, frustration, fear and nothing seems to make sense anymore. Why?

Shifting frequency is done fast on the energetic level of higher consciousness. This is what often is referred to as shifting into another dimension. What we tend to forget ist that all of our existence: the mental, the emotional and the physical body need to come along, too. And that takes time. Every time we step out of our comfort zone, we cause this process to be set into motion. We can either choose actively to take that step, or prolong and avoid it until the law of attraction does us that favor and delivers us the necessary trigger and situation that kicks us out.

The step into the uncomfortable, into the fear zone triggers a cognitive dissonance followed by an (unwanted) emotion. This is the necessary basis for an energetic frequency shift. It basically shows us where we are still blocking ourselves from unconditional love. Each time we go through such a trigger, there are always two processes running in parallel:

1) Releasing of old Frequency Patterns that do not fit that new Level

The step out of our comfort zone naturally causes an energetic friction between different frequencies within us. Old fear frequencies we still hold in our bodies are surfacing to be let go of. They show up in form of emotions we feel. When we allow ourselves to feel them without being afraid of the pain, without going into the drama or letting our head create a story around it, we shift it quickly. Treating emotions as energy without any interpretation keeps us in our power and in the moment. We feel the old pain and then let it go. We go deep, but feel lighter afterwards.

Depending on which body is cleansing the sensations feel different. The mental (home of the ego/masculine) and emotional body (home of the inner child/feminine) are not as dense as the physical body (embodiment of the energetic frequency band we are currently in/spirit). Releases from the mental body just come in form of “thought garbage” – thoughts that fly by without being able to really grasp them. That is very often experienced in Reiki sessions, as it is the easiest and quickest level to cleanse. The emotional body releases in forms of feelings. They come suddenly and can be quite explosive, and they often feel like the complete overwhelm. The physical body releases from the cellular memory and that takes a lot more time due to its higher density. The releases feel more like pulling out chewing gum. The emotions and thought patterns that come up for release feel subtler and yet go much deeper. It is a deep aching, almost like recalling a past life memory that becomes very real in that moment. In addition to that, old chronic disease flares up, also a final purging of old patterns. This is no fun, and yet it is necessary and important to allow it to be there and to not try to suppress or fight it.

2) Integrating new Information of the new Frequency Band (Dimension)

The second process is that our bodies are integrating new information and are forming new pathways to operate on. We are rewriting the script by taking in the new data. Our bodies are upgrading and learning to maintain the higher frequency band we intend to fully shift into. Also here, the integration of information of the different bodies happens in different speeds depending on the density.

The whole energetic structure needs to change to be able to handle the new frequency permanently. That really means to rebuild everything.”

The whole energetic structure needs to change to be able to handle the new frequency permanently. That really means rebuilding everything. Also here, the physical body needs longest to restructure its whole geometry and integrate the DNA upgrades (data / Light codes) we are receiving when we are outside of the comfort zone. The mental body experiences sudden insights and aha moments, where all of a sudden everything is crystal clear and makes total sense. The emotional body experiences unconditional love for the first time through the heart and it can be completely overwhelming and emotional in a beautiful way, feeling connected with all that is energetically. The physical body is integrating new DNA information and changes in behavior, form and structure. Shape shifting is a common thing to observe. As the body is now able to take in more and more light, the form of the eyes changes, weight changes, cravings change, the skin color changes, hair growth intensifies etc. Along with that come tons of symptoms: Blurry eyes, spine pain, especially in the neck area, flu symptoms, especially a sore throat, ringing ears, heart palpitations, joint pain, nerves firing, migraines etc. The whole system is adapting to be able to handle the new frequency and that is far from comfortable. (Of course… because we are outside of the comfort zone…)

The Chaos in between

When we go through these releases and upgrades, we experience a lot of chaos. We are in the middle of two frequency bands and feel that nothing makes sense anymore. We don’t understand what is going on, we feel hopeless, useless and crappy. Although these phases are uncomfortable, they are a necessary part of the process and cannot be avoided. We are recalibrating, reforming, restructuring. The old structures are dissolved, so that the new structure can form. Until we are able to fully hold the new frequency because we have restructured our whole system to handle it, we are experiencing these intense periods of chaos and overwhelm. And that is the feeling like “Sh*t” part that is necessary.

To make it a bit more tangible, let’s look into Cymatics. Cymatics is the visualization of different sound frequencies (measured in hz). When you put sand on a plate that vibrates to the different sound frequencies coming out of a loudspeaker, geometric patterns form and change. Between two frequency bands, the sand corns are reorganizing and go into chaos. The higher the frequency, the more complex the geometry gets. Looking at this we can understand much better, what is going on within our bodies when we shift our own frequency upwards. Just imagine how much longer that restructuring takes, when you don’t take sand but clay instead (to kind of compare it to our physical body). Our geometric patterns change, yet in between there is chaos. As long as we are not able to fully hold the new frequency, we fall back into chaos. Until we have completely restructured and built our new geometry.

This video shows this experiment beautifully.

So please be patient with your bodies / System when going through the shifts. There is a lot going on within that we cannot see, but surely feel and experience. It is all normal and necessary in order to go through our personal human evolution. Understanding how energy works and connecting with and empowering our inner child plays a vital role in our process. Patience is key, and we really need to become our own compassionate space holders, appreciating what our body does and goes through, in order for us to shift our experience.

  1. Thank you Vera for this wonderful message. Once we know what is happening and that the incoming Light Energies often simultaneously result in sometimes uncomfortable healings-clearings, it can be easier to rest in the process and go with the flow without going into fear and upset. Thank you for your clear, helpful explanation of this process.

  2. Vera thank you! September was rough but reading your message now makes so much sense and I am so grateful for the changes and growth. As always your messages are so helpful, inspiring and insightful:)

  3. Vera, you always put the tough stuff in a more illuminating perspective. That’s because you light the way!
    Sept was tough, not just back-to-school busy. I’ve been meeting some pretty magical people lately, very deep, sometimes other-worldly exchanges, who have helped me connect to myself, in the most unlikely of places, suburbia!! Lesson: It really doesn’t matter where you are physically–enlightenment happens within our hearts.

  4. That is a brilliant explanation of what is happening to us on an energetic level. Thank you so much for this clarity Vera<3

  5. I consider my self a healthy woman, but I have been having pressure in my kidney area and wonder if this is a symptom of the upgrade and wonder what I can do about it. Thank you for any ideas on this.

  6. true but don’t forget we are the monad, so we always have the opportunity to shift it and choose again, moment by moment. It’s all choice and every thing is perception.
