Aligning with True Mastery to Create a New Foundation of Love

Dear Ones,

Every year on August 8 the Earth aligns with the Galactic Center of the Universe to create an extremely beneficial portal to accelerate ascension energies within you. This Lion’s Gateway allows intense Light waves from the Great Central Sun to stream through our Sun and anchor new solar codes for Mastery and higher aspects of Love onto the planet. This year offers a rare triple 8 Lion’s Gateway Activation, as 2015 (2+0+1+5=8) adds another 8 to the equation, creating an even more powerful portal into the higher realms of Divinity.

The 8-8-8 Lion’s Gateway Portal opened July 26 to inspire new balance between your heart’s intelligence and your thinking mind, creating a connection that will become your new reality; a reality so deeply aligned with your soul that it provides a platform for a profound inner foundation of Love. This alignment with the Galactic Center inspires your deepest connection to the Christed Heart within you. As you taste this new reality, the doorway opens, gently revealing to you the Harmony that is possible when you relinquish fear and open into a new alignment with Divine Love.

The Peace that prevails during this portal period gives you a clear indication of what you have been craving in your heart. The expansive ability to love with your whole heart and mind is the new level of energy being offered in the 8-8-8 Alignment. This gives you the freedom and inspiration so you can choose Love as your only reality and expand your energy field to live in a state of true Peace within your heart.

As inviting as it sounds, this may be uncomfortable for some. Most people are not used to the level of expansion that a state of Peace entails, as most are familiar with their energy field functioning in a contracted state to feel more safe in the new frequencies that are electrifying the nervous system.

However, the activations that are being provided on a daily basis during the Lion’s Gate Portal are offering your energy system a lift in Light Frequency so you can have a true experience of pure alignment within your being. Your Pituitary/Pineal Center, which is connected by pure Light to your High Heart, is the focus of activation for you at this pivotal time.

Your work as a Light Bearer of new consciousness is to fully open to the perception of this unfamiliar reality as one of Love and Alignment with your Soul’s gifts. The Lion’s Gateway is the portal where you can allow this connection to your Soul to be the consciousness that inspires your life.

“Name it and claim it” becomes a useful process for creation of your new reality. The recognition and focus of your balanced mind/heart connection trains your energy system to work in a new way; one that will fulfill your soul’s requirement for a sense of Harmony and Peace within your heart. As you establish Love as your new basis for living, it precedes the unfoldment of expansiveness and levels of freedom in every area of your life.

Throughout the shift in consciousness occurring through the Lion’s Gateway, be aware of the Masters and Archangels at work to keep the focus of Alignment in the forefront of your awareness. The portal you are experiencing is not a mental construct, but a demonstration of one of the most powerful alignments you have ever experienced. The more refined energies that have been awakening those who are preparing the way for all humanity has enabled the purity of the portal for this year. New clear alignments that are directly connected to your individual Soul are now possible through the work by many who have been committed to the ascension of all beings on the planet at this time.

Throughout the energetic gateway period that is occurring now until after August 8, take the time to open your inner portal of awareness through focus on your Third Eye Chakra. Ask to align with the frequencies of Christed Light from the great Central Sun, and allow yourself to feel the activation of your Pineal/Pituitary Center. Claim Love and Peace as your only reality and let it anchor in your High Heart. As this new Christed Light energy flows through your physical being, it raises your energy centers to the new harmonizing frequencies of the Lion’s Gate Portal in pure alignment with your most Divine Source.

Allow the brilliance of this pure Alignment to activate the frequencies in your lower chakra centers and become very aware of your ability to connect this energy to the Earth. Imagining your deep connection with the Earth allows this new frequency of expansive heart-centered energy to openly expand and create a new foundation for your life.

You are guided in this process by the illumined beings actively holding frequencies for all humanity to awaken. The 8-8-8 portal is the time allotted for a new galactic year of mastering your Heart and Mind connection. Use this time to activate freedom and new life within you so you can bring forth your Soul’s gifts into your new reality of Love. Feel the support from the Archangels and know deeply in true faith that you are loved.

And so it is.

    Hi Shanta, Thank you for this post. Today is my 52nd Birthday! And along with that, I have been watching the amazing Christed energy rise through the chakras of my body. From my feet and my special connection to Earth. I have watched it move through the chakras over the two years and the effect on my body as it reached the Pituitary/Pineal Center on January 2nd of this year, and the intense effect this had on my central nervous system. But it allowed my body to highlight early stage ovarian cancer, for which I have had sucessful surgery and am undergoing chemo treatment. But the energy and the story of this wondrous spiritual process is what fills my days . It is this amazing energy that has taken over… I have been using words like Easter Sunday, and Transcendence to try and verbalise it, as the mind is directed by this power of Love. Thank you so much for this post! It has been a lovely birthday present. Eimear x
