The energy of Earth and its physical dimension are ever changing at faster and faster rates. The birth of Earth to a whole new level has taken place over the past year. You have gone beyond the understanding of dimensions and moved into the understanding of your holographic being. The holographic being works in magnetic energy. This is the balance of the feminine and masculine energies and moves you back into the greater alignment of the ONE. This of course is from a conscious point of view, as you have never left the ONE.

Transformational Counseling - Part Two
Once one becomes present to his or her self-limiting belief, the opportunity then exists, possibly for the first time in the person’s life, to invent a possibility for his or her life, to begin to reinvent his or her life anew. An individual’s possibility is how that person will be in the present, free of the constraints or barriers of the past, a creation from nothing. Within Transformational Counseling, an individual’s possibility is a new or different way of thinking about himself or herself, of who they are, of who they will be. Like the individual’s self-limiting belief, a person’s possibility is a personal affirmation or declaration.
