We use the term “patterning” to indicate using all our senses combined with high energy to “visualize” what we would like to create. This type of visualization is conducive for the new creation or pattern to emerge into our reality. Patterns shifting might be a yin yang process at times as well as many other things. A key is to be in line with the positive flavors of energy available and then use them to you benefit.
The main way one can tell if a pattern if shifting is that it will begin to feel like there is some struggle to maintain the current pattern. Most heart-centered patterns are very stable. The challenge is continuing to do the same things for the right reason (because they generate greater heart energy) rather than proceed by rote or by manipulations (doing them to force the universe to comply with our request).
