Transitioning Into a New Paradigm by Yassica Ferrer
On Earth, we live in a paradigm of duality but what would our reality look like if we shifted into a paradigm of unity? Below I share a series of images through artwork that explores the journey of transformation, release, and rebirth as we collectively prepare to transition into unity.
As I was sitting on a chair, with my feet flat on the floor, in deep meditation, I felt as if I was being transported from one dimension to the next. I started counting in my mind as I felt the shifts from one to the next and the next. I stopped counting at ten.
While in this space, I felt a wave of energy cut across my body from right to left as it weaved its way from one side to the next wrapping me as it made its way down to my feet. I could feel my arms tightly held close to my body.
As the weaving stopped, I felt contained in a safe and protected space for the healing work to follow. My divine feminine and divine masculine were merging as one.
I found it interesting that I was not working with the infinity symbol to represent this integration. As we transition from duality to unity, symbols we have worked with for centuries may change and new ones may come in to guide us.
The infinity and the yin and yang, for example, are symbols that have helped us reflect on the balance of the feminine and the masculine. However, we can still visibly see the two energies as separate. The new paradigm is now disrupting that balance in order to merge – truly merge into one.
How can we come together as a collective if we have not done the inner work to merge all aspects of ourselves as one? Can we let go, surrender, and accept change? The artwork above reflects this transition period where we are cocooned and transforming; always remembering that we are divinely guided by our higher self. We surrender to the process as we get ready to release what encases us in order to step out and be re-birthed.
When We Breathe
“She is breathing!” said the tour guide with a big smile on his face as we could see the smoke in the distance rising. We were on Mt. Etna in Sicily and I, too, could feel her breathing.
As I took a deep breath, I could feel her strength and how alive she was. It felt invigorating. We walked around an eruption that was hundreds of years old which was devastating to the local population; and another more recent, in 2001, where experts were able to track the lava flow and redirect it in order to prevent further destruction.
When I went to Mt. Etna on August 30, 2019, I gained a better understanding of the image I had sketched in my notebook a month earlier. While in deep meditation, I had seen a pyramid structure that resembled a mountain and a central tube running through it. At the top was a chalice receiving and releasing the flow of energy as it flowed through this central tube merging the left and the right hemispheres. I was shown another way of viewing the human body, our strength, and our healing potential.
The Earth is alive, she is breathing, and she mirrors our emotions as we do hers. As we transition into a new paradigm we are releasing what no longer serves us. We breathe in what we want to integrate and transform; and we release what no longer serves our highest good. How we navigate through this transition is our choice.
Just like Mt. Etna, we can have emotional eruptions that are destructive to us and those around us. We can also ask for help to navigate through the ins and outs of our own traumas, pains, and fears. Change can be confusing and overwhelming for many but it is important to go within, to the depths of our center, where we can tap into our inner compass and anchor ourselves in the present moment. Only then can we maintain a steady flow of energy running through our body, keeping our emotions in balance, and finding our way to our core being where there is light and clarity.
In the artwork above I have tried to capture the breath as we integrate, release, and balance our upper and lower realms; while also balancing and merging the left and the right - the divine feminine and divine masculine - in our transition beyond duality to unity.
After we have been through the process of integration and release, we are ready to be re-birthed. We are ready to shed our old skin and step into a new reality.
The symbol in this artwork appeared in my mind’s eye on Nov. 8, 2017 but I did not understand it at that time. It was not until nearly two years later, on August 20, 2019, while sitting in mediation, and wondering why a lot of issues around the skin were coming up for many people that I knew (i.e. allergies, vitiligo, skin cancer, etc) that the symbol appeared again. This time it had the sun above and the sun below. The dot on the left was presented to me as the moon.
As we know, the skin is the first layer of contact with the outside world. Many of our fears can manifest as skin conditions. The underlying theme is that of separation - the separation we experience when we separate from source and are born into our third dimensional human body. We forget that we are not truly separated. There are many (waves of souls) who are breaking through this veil of illusion now and it can be unsettling. To shift to a new paradigm of unity we must re-member and help each other re-member.
For the inner feminine to grow and express herself, the inner masculine must grow in self-belief, self-worth, and self-confidence so that she can feel safe and secure. To work with this symbol imagine the line of energy that starts from your right side, cutting across from one ear to the next, clearing anything that may be blocking you from hearing and connecting to your inner compass. Then follow this energy as it makes its way across the body and wraps your lower half to help build the foundations and the strength you will need to birth your creations into existence.
When you turn the image clockwise, the two suns represent our two physical eyes - the divine feminine and the divine masculine - and the moon is our third eye.
When we see with all our eyes we see through the illusion and we can observe all perspectives. We learn that there are no victims in this world.
What one experiences is experienced by all. We are learning from each other and re-membering each other. We are all walking each other home. This is true compassion.
As we move from duality to unity, I ask, “What does unity look like?” They answer, “When the two suns and the moon come together as one.”
I now understand with great joy the accompanying message to the symbol I channeled on November 8, 2017 and I share it below for the first time:
“Open your eyes and see. See all that is around you because what you see will no longer be there. It will disappear one day. A new reality will unfold. You will see more than one sun and it will not blind you. There are two suns and one moon.”

As we transition into unity let’s embrace it, not fear it.
