Yvonne Perry is a spiritual coach, metaphysical speaker, and spiritual author. For the past five years, she has been on a rapid journey to purer consciousness and wrote a book about the ascension process, Shifting into Purer Consciousness ~ Integrating Spiritual Transformation with the Human Experience. In the following interview, she shares her book and the transformation process she has been encountering.
QUESTION: We’ve seen an increase in natural disasters. People are losing jobs, relationships are shifting, careers are changing, government systems are failing, and the world economy is very unstable. How does your book help people who are experiencing fear from all the global economy, political, and social changes we are seeing?
YVONNE: In the midst of all this turmoil we are leaving one way of living behind and going to another way. There’s a gap between the two that is very scary. You may think you are about to be sucked into a pit or wondering if you are going to safely traverse the gap. Like Indiana Jones, you may be wondering when you take that first step will the bridge appear? It sure helps to have some kind of understanding about what’s going on energetically on the planet. These are some things I address in the first chapter of Shifting into Purer Consciousness.
I give scientific reasons as to how the Earth and our solar system are moving into an orbital path to align with the equator of the Milky Way Galaxy. In 2012, we ended the Precession of the Equinoxes, which is the last of the 12 zodiac signs in the cycle. While this was the end of one paradigm, it is not the end of our transitional process into higher consciousness. We are still awakening spiritually to our truth that we are divine beings. While we are many individual personalities, we are yet one. There’s really no separateness because we are connected by spirit, our human DNA, the group mind, and the breath shared universally around the world. That’s one reason why we are feeling so much the pain and sorrow of others as well as the ecstatic joy of entering into a new phase of human development. We’re leaving old things behind and we’re moving into beautiful spiritual truths and living more authentically. We’re opening to miracles. People are becoming more telepathic in communicating with one another. We’ve seen spiritual gifts of healing demonstrated. These are precursors to what’s coming next.
There are ways to make the shift easier. One is to stop resisting change and begin to flow with Spirit in allowing your own healing and transformation to take place. I encourage you to get into your heart space, into that centered place within you where love abides and you feel at home. There, you feel a connection with the creator, or God—whatever you want to call that life-force energy. To be at one with the I AM Presence brings phenomenal peace regardless of what’s going on around you. Soon you will begin to radiate such love and joy, peace and light from within your heart center, that it affects your outer world. The most important about this shift is that we are awakening from within.
QUESTION: In 2011, you published a book, Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom of the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You, in which you candidly discussed how we pick up energy around us, and how it affects us. It teaches how to identify our own energy versus the energy of people around us. How is the Shifting into Purer Consciousness book serving as the sequel to your empath book?
YVONNE: Perhaps you’ve discovered that you are overly sensitive and you’re getting a great understanding of what’s yours and what belongs to someone else (my book, Whose Stuff Is This? ~ Finding Freedom from the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You can help you gain a great deal of success in managing energy overload). Now you realize there is a reason you have the gift of empathy and you want to know what to do with it. That’s where Shifting into Purer Consciousness comes in. It’s the next step to take as an empath. It teaches how to put your life back together and start accomplishing your spiritual mission as the Earth and humanity are rapidly shifting.
QUESTION: So what about those who are in a dark place and not sure what is going on in their lives? Maybe they are going through depression and can’t seem to shift out of it.
YVONNE: There’s a gift in depression and hardship; even though it looks bad on the outside, if you will walk through it, you will find it leads you to the sacred heart space to find your personal treasure. Whenever our emotions are in distress or our bodies manifest an illness, they are giving us a message. The accelerated energy near the Earth is causing us to shed our limiting beliefs—conscious and unconscious. Anything that no longer serves our highest good is rising to the surface to be dealt with. So if you are going through an illness, mental disturbance, or emotional turmoil or sudden change such as a loss of job, there’s something coming to the light. It’s wise to pay attention to this message. Go ahead and delve into the emotion and see what Spirit’s message is and ask “How can I change this? What do I need to know or let go of in order to receive the gift in this situation?” It’s not a matter of avoiding the symptoms or say, “I must get a job now!” Instead, ask,” What is the lesson in this experience?” or “What is the message in this illness?” or “What needs to shift in my subconscious beliefs?” Look at what’s occurring for you. Don’t ignore it, don’t pretend like it’s not there, don’t cover it up or medicate with recreational drugs, alcohol, food, or other substances to avoid the pain. Instead, look at what the pain is trying to teach you. Find the gift in the moment of suffering and know that you can shift your life experience by shifting your attitude, thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.
QUESTION: What do our thoughts and emotions have to do with spiritual transformation?
YVONNE: Spiritual transformation has everything to do with the inner life: the thoughts we think and the emotions that we feel. With an empath, these are already kicked into high gear so it’s a matter of calming them down and learning to manage them by seeing them as energy and knowing that you can do something about it.
Whenever you start feeling fearful, angry, or offended you have the power within you to make a choice. You have life force or creative power within you to shift your thoughts or emotion and feel something more positive and beneficial. I know it sounds magical, but you can do it if you just start practicing with one thing at a time. Catch the thoughts in your mind, pay attention when you are being critical and judgmental of yourself or others. Then ask for help from the Holy Spirit, angels, ascended masters, or the spirit beings that you feel comfortable with to help you transform negative thoughts into peaceful, kind, and loving thoughts. Whatever we send out activates the manifestation process. So if we’re thinking thoughts like “I’m depressed, or life is bad, or that person is so stupid,” you are judging that person, and this creates an energetic bomb to be launched on you as well as the other person. You could create a balm instead by hearing your own soul’s higher guidance in your thoughts and emotions. We think these things because we have disconnected from our feelings, the earth, and have closed our hearts to love. We don’t know how to love ourselves because that requires really feeling our connection. That’s why spiritual transformation or spiritual awakening has to begin from within your own thoughts and emotions.
QUESTION: What do I mean by purer consciousness?
YVONNE: You think of the pureness of anything as being untainted or unclouded. It’s very clear, concise, refreshing, uplifting, and healthy. To be conscious means to be aware, awake, on guard and not asleep or lazy. To have purer consciousness, means your thoughts and emotions are in alignment with what you want to create as a powerful and divine being. This is the right use of energy (righteousness).
The Universe or God is totally impartial (no respecter of persons). Because this energy is always expanding, it creates whatever we desire—even if it is something negative or harmful. You can see why it is so important to think about what you want to bring about. When your conscious is clear, you attract pleasant situations, people, and things into your life.
Our emotions are the fuel for the thoughts we think and help to bring them to the next step on the manifestation production rack. That’s one reason that shifting into purer consciousness has to begin at the mental and emotional level. Because the majority of our beliefs are subconscious, they may be very different from our spoken words and what we think we believe. That’s why we manifest illnesses, depression, emotional disturbances, and other discomforting things. There’s no need to judge these things; they can be used to shake us up and show us where we need to begin to co-create more consciously.
QUESTION: What are some ascension symptoms?
YVONNE: While none of these should be confused with serious conditions, which require medical attention, here are some other signs indicating that a spiritual awakening is occurring for you:
- Fatigue , headaches, heart palpitations, hot flashes, and ringing in the ears
- Depression and loss of interest
- Nervousness, anxiety, shaking, seeing/hearing things that others don’t perceive
- Change of relationships, careers, dietary preferences, sleep patterns vision and perception, and libido level
- Creativity and energy surges that include decluttering, detoxing, and simplifying your life
- Desire for freedom
- Electronic disturbances
- Synchronicities, intuition, and psychic gifts increased
- Keen awareness of thoughts (your own and of those around you) and more emotional responses (energetic sensitivities)
- Miraculous healing of body, mind, or emotions
- Desire to return to simple life and reconnecting with the earth. A lot of people are “going green.” Some are growing their own food or moving to a more natural setting. Some are downsizing, using solar energy to power their homes, buying hybrid cars, etc.
QUESTION: Talk to us about your personal shift while writing this book about ascension.
YVONNE: The process of writing my new book, Shifting into Purer Consciousness ~ Integrating Spiritual Transformation with the Human Experience, caused me to go through quite a shift physically, mentally, and emotionally. I know for certain that the book carries the energy of transformation and transmutation!
It was January 2011 when I first knew I was going to be writing this book, but at the time I was writing Who’s Stuff is This?, so I put it on the back burner in order to get that book out there. When I came back to the manuscript and set my intention to diligently work on this book, I had a visitation from an angelic being in a higher realm. During that heavenly period, I received a download from a nomad, oversoul, or higher dimensional soul that endowed me with the power, the “anointing of the Holy Spirit” as we called it in my Pentecostal days, to write this book. This being rested upon me and for 12 days and I was in intense bliss. I had never felt joy like that before. I even smelled a heavenly fragrance that only I could smell. It was 24/7, that beautiful fragrance! Ahhh! Then two weeks later, just as quickly as it came, it left. I was disappointed to say the least! Where’s my bliss? What happened to the fragrance? Hello?
Like most “bump ups” in energy, that visitation came with rapid spiritual growth and huge changes. There I was—healthy and going about my business, thinking the world couldn’t be better and then in a matter of three months I had become so weak I could hardly walk to the mailbox. It felt as though my physical body was falling apart. I went to my doctor thinking all the symptoms I was having (too many to mention) must be menopause—my hormones must be off or something. She could offer no explanation and gave absolutely no treatment! As I continued to spiral downward, I felt angry at my doctor, but looking back, I realize that her complacency about my condition caused me to seek treatment in a more natural and holistic manner than the synthetic drugs she might have prescribed.
Everything that wasn’t working for my body was coming up to be flushed out all at once. I was determined to get help, so I found a medical doctor (naturopath) who uses natural products and plant-based products in order to address at least five things going berserk within my body. He monitored my progress on some very powerful supplements that aided the balancing and rebuilding of my physical body. I am well again now.
My toxic diet had to change because it was destroying my body, negatively affecting my emotions, and interfering with my ability to receive clear spiritual guidance. I could not return to the way I was eating before; and thankfully, the grace to make this permanent shift has been there every step of the way. I would not have been able to consistently maintain a plant-based, sugar-free, gluten-free eating plan prior to this shift.
While writing the book, I also had to apply (prove) the techniques I was discovering in my research. I was urged to really start paying attention and calling myself out every time I had a negative thought. If the thought was not something I wanted to manifest, I changed it immediately and substitute that thought with one that was in line with the mind of Christ. In other words, before I could produce this book, I had clean out my own closet and get rid of my own physical, mental, and emotional garbage.
QUESTION: What kind of research did you put into this book?
YVONNE: To support my findings, I read more than 20 books on the topic of spiritual development and the coming age of enlightenment, that’s in addition to all the online research I conducted. But since I am well versed in the Bible, after spending 40 years in the church, attending three or four times a week, I memorized all kinds of scriptures, and facilitated prayer meetings. Therefore, I use a lot of Bible verses to support what I am relating in this book. I’m not as familiar with Eastern teachings. Since I wanted to get this book out within a year, a crash course in Eastern teachings was not an option.
QUESTION: How will people be changed by reading your book?
YVONNE: My body, mind, emotions, finances, relationships, literally everything has been transformed by the writing of this book. As I capture and reprogram every thought, things are continuing to shift but in a much more pleasant manner. Spirit’s healing touch is upon this book and I believe people who read it may already feel ascension symptoms and know that something is crazy different, but they don’t know what’s causing it or what to do about it. I share my story in the book because I want those who are having similar experiences to know that they are not crazy—that everything is okay. Knowledge can go a long way to relieve anxiety and help people flow with the work Spirit is doing. We’re moving into a higher consciousness; so let’s hang on during the process. We’re in this together and we can help one make this marvelous shift within.
QUESTION: Who can benefit from your book?
YVONNE: This book is intended to help those who are really fearful of the future due to having been indoctrinated into fear-based religions that teach a dreadful end of time. Many of these people are having experiences that their religious dogma can’t explain. They are searching for answers. Through my research and things I have shared in my book, I believe they are going to find a lot of the answers they are looking for. Also, those who are experiencing ascension symptoms will find valuable tools for making rapid spiritual growth easier.
QUESTION: Where do you see us headed as a society?
YVONNE: Society is currently a controlling, competitive, manipulative, greed-based system of the dog-eat-dog world in which many people are barely surviving. We are moving to a matriarchal, divine feminine (goddess energy) mindset that is more nurturing and community-oriented. There we will be more aligned with the Earth and concerned about helping one another rather than taking advantage of one another. We are seeing this shift toward equality through efforts such as Occupy Wall Street (and other cities). These grassroots movements are causing great shifts and calling out the injustice of organizations that are not aligned with the divine feminine. We are all being urged very strongly to make changes and realize how valuable Earth really is. We can’t live without Her and we can no longer ignore our connection to her.
I also believe we are going to see a huge change in allopathic medicine. For so long we’ve viewed our body, mind, and spirit as separate. When we treat one part of the body without considering the impact it has on the whole system, we are destroying the temple of our Spirit. We cannot keep treating symptoms and throwing a pill at our disconnected condition. Over dependence upon pharmaceuticals has allowed us to ignore what is really going on rather than dealing with what is causing the problem. Our health is always related to our thoughts and feelings. In the shift, I see people treating themselves with natural substances and supplements and eating consciously to maintain optimal health.
