The “Shift”: What it is, Why it’s Happening, How it’s Going to Affect You & The Mastering of Alchemy
By Jim Self
Time is going faster
Many people are not aware of the precise nature of the changes they are experiencing, but they are noticing the effects of these changes. For example, if you ask the question: “Do you think time is going faster?” A great many will say “yes, it is as if I just got out of bed in the morning, and before I know it I’m getting ready for bed again. Where did the day go?”
Time is more related to the rhythms and cycles held within our four lower bodies than it is to the clock on the wall. As these two massive Waves of Light flow within, through, and around us and the Earth, the reference points that we have come to know ourselves by are all changing.
The first change that is occurring is in the Earth’s magnetic fields. The Waves of Light are altering the magnetic fields that surround the Earth, causing them to weaken, deteriorate and change. As the Earth’s magnetic fields change, the magnetic fields, cycles and rhythms within our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical bodies are also being altered. Some cycles are accelerating while other cycles and rhythms are slowing down. Our concept of time is being altered as the Waves of Light pass through each of us, changing the rhythms and cycles within.
For example, if it took you five minutes to walk from point A to point B, and you did this every day of your life, you would have a physical-body sense of how long it takes you to cover the distance. But as time collapses, you have less time to walk the same length from A to B, so you now have a physical sense of having to walk faster to cover the same distance, even though your watch still shows the same amount of time was taken. What’s happening is that your internal sensory mechanisms are telling you that time is going faster because you had to hurry to get to the same place in the same time that your watch actually recorded.
As the Waves of Light are changing our internal rhythms they are bringing us closer and closer to Present Time. Present time is the only place in which we exist. And as our internal magnetic fields weaken, our cycles and rhythms are beginning to align in a singular flow of consciousness. Our biorhythms, heartbeats, and pulses of the meridian system are all beginning to align into a singular rhythm, aligning with the heartbeat of the earth. As this occurs, all of our memories, thoughts, emotions and beliefs that are not aligned with the higher consciousness of well-being are falling away. One Wave is clearing away many of our memories of the past; all those old arguments, embarrassing moments, and painful experiences stored unconsciously within our memory that have nothing to do with who we are and thus have no value in the present moment. Simultaneously, the other Wave of Light is expanding the range of possibilities within each of our realities, thereby providing more choice and opportunities to experience ourselves to the very fullest.
Losing your memories, gaining your truth
Have you noticed yourself beginning to say something, only to realize that you suddenly can’t find the words to complete your sentences? Or that you can’t recall the word for the spoon that you are holding in your hand? If this is happening to you, don’t be alarmed. You’re not the only one having these experiences. And no, it is not Alzheimer’s. Neither does it have anything to do with your gender, age or culture.
The purpose of this second Wave of Light is to clear away old patterns, beliefs, thoughts and emotions that we hold that do not support our well-being. Because we did not know what to do with insults or invalidations that we received growing up, we learned to store away the uncomfortable and unsupportive thoughts and emotions that we experienced. In so doing, we chose to give up our own seniority, along with the truths and beliefs that we naturally held in well-being, and instead chose to believe other people’s opinions.
As we begin to awaken and remember who we are, many of our old non-truth, non-aligned belief patterns are beginning to fall away. In this process of spiritual development we are losing many of our memories, our reference points upon which we have built our third-dimensional reality. We are losing these because we cannot take our negative thoughts, beliefs and emotions with us on this journey. The second Wave of Light is clearing them from our unconsciousness. As these unconscious reference points that support our sense of lack are being cleared, simple words like “spoon” sometimes get caught in the clearing of the patterns.
There is nothing broken, it is simply that who we are NOT and never were is beginning to fall away.
Simultaneously, the first Wave of Light is passing through us, expanding our awareness and our understanding of who we are, who we have always been. This understanding is not located in the analytical, rational mind. It is centered in our broader field of perception within our knowingness, within our higher consciousness and the internal guidance system found within our Hearts. As we are beginning to remember who we are, we are beginning to let go of who-we-are-not. And although letting go of who-we-are-not is very desirable, letting go of our beliefs, our thoughts and concepts of the world may not be an easy experience.
Spiritual Development Starts from Within
The transformation that is occurring within us is shifting our thoughts and beliefs, and changing the ways in which we experience the world around us. Until now, most of us have measured ourselves by the outside world. Our beliefs about how we look, what is acceptable, what we think, and how we act have all been influenced and established by the third-dimensional world outside ourselves.
Our thoughts create our beliefs, our beliefs create our habits and our habits create our lives. Our beliefs then connect the thoughts that run through our experiences, forming our conclusions. However, many of the thoughts that we think and the beliefs that we hold are actually not our own thoughts or beliefs; they were given to us by mom, dad, teacher, minister and the third-dimensional reality outside of ourselves. It’s not that mom and dad or anyone else around us set out deliberately to mislead us; they were simply passing on what their parents and their parent’s parents (along with most of the rest of society) had taught them to accept as the “truth.” Growing up, many of us may intuitively felt that what others accepted as the “truth” did not feel “right” to us, but consensus opinion is a powerful thing. It’s not easy to stand against the crowd or argue with our elders, or loved ones. Hence, many of us learned to “toe the line,” to repress our intuitive senses, and dumb down our feelings. In the process, we became numb. This is why so many people today are unhappy, but have no idea why. It’s because they have lost touch with their own inner guidance system.
Now, as we begin to awaken, a new recognition is unfolding within us. As we start to seek our own truth and walk our own unique path, many of us are beginning to realize that there is much more to who we are than the outside world has led us to believe. As we look within, we are beginning to realize that we are multi-dimensional, spiritual beings able to align with a Higher Truth. As this transformation is occurring, we are beginning to recognize that it is our own truth that creates happiness, success, balanced health, while adding simplicity to our life path.
In the past, only a few souls have experienced this Higher Truth. But now this truth has turned into an adventure that is being sought by many. Because of you, and the many others who are now awakening, a new consciousness is unfolding! The third-dimensional world that was defined by the truths, structures and beliefs of those around us is no longer working and is being dissolved. We are experiencing a huge change, a quickening in conscious awareness. A Grand Awakening!

As an entrepreneur, he has successfully built and sold two corporations, and is the founder and current Board Chairman of a third.
At the same time, Jim has had the ability since childhood to recall his experiences within the sleep state. Over the last twenty years, this awareness has expanded into relationships with the archangels, ascended masters and teachers of light. The tools and information presented in the program, Mastering Alchemy, is a co-creation of these relationships.
Jim has been leading seminars on personal energy management and the tools of Mastering Alchemy for almost thirty years. He offers free a wealth of FREE material on his website, including downloadable articles, videos, E-books, videos, and animations featuring essential Mastering Alchemy tools and other useful information. Details of his free online Teleclasses, Webinars, and classes can be found at Mastering Alchemy.
Jim also presents an ongoing series of enlightening and informative discussions with some of the most interesting world-leading teachers, channels, and authors around today each month on the Awakening Zone Network.
