Moving through the Shifts of Time

 

A great many shifts are taking place, particularly with the New Moon/Solar Eclipse cycle.  Everyone is passing through a number of small (and large) realizations about life, energy, and the cosmos at large. The energy is intense and changing at a rapid rate. When we understand what it happening and how it affects us, we move more quickly into a higher level of light.

  1. The universe is revealing the truth about our lives, enlarging our perception, and exposing the world at large. At this juncture, the big reveal comes in a strange way. We may perceive higher frequencies and suddenly know how the new, “higher” frequency reality will feel. We may feel dismayed by violence, discrimination, or the world-at-large. We may have moments of realization about how our lives need expansion, the energy of other people, and the need to align with our inner identity. We may feel the weight of mass consciousness–or perceive the immense power of love and meditation on the world. (For those who are more awakened, we may feel surprised when we observe instead of reacting–or resist the push/pull effect of this particular time.)
  2. The shift affects time. As we move into awakening, we mitigate karma. When we transmute karma, our timelines (or memories of this and other lives) alter–simply because we no longer “vibrate” with these types of energy.
  3. Flashes of memories and rapid thought at bedtime are interspersed with periods of deep sleep. The flashes of memories relate to a process of clearing and cleansing our energies throughout this lifetime. The periods of deep sleep relate to healing and discovering more of our true identity–the inner self.
  4. Emotions and the energetic flow of the body change with awakening. We may feel very tired one day and energized on the following day. Additionally, dreams may reveal our lack of confidence, incorrect perceptions, or our ability to change the entire picture through connection with the inner self. (Many of our personal issues can relate to our connection with world consciousness. For example, grief connects us with people who are grieving. A feeling of lack leads to connection with others, who feel they do not have enough. Part of the issue involves changing our image of the world through improvement of personal feelings and vision of the world.)
  5. The flow of life changes on a frequent basis. The energy shifts and feels differently with solar flares, shifts in the geo-magnetic field, and astrological events. As we become more connected, we feel the energy of world events on a deeper level. The seasons and positions of the sun and moon are changing. We are becoming accustomed to “not” knowing how life will feel, which can put us in the flow.
  6. Relationships are changing. As we grow, we continue to move into relationships with people who want to evolve. Sometimes, we simply lack the energy to persist with relationships based on negativity and/or lower energies. We’re also releasing soul contracts, which are agreements to interact in a specific way. (Groups of people with higher frequencies will come together on a conscious level.)
  7. We’re learning to live from the heart, which means intuitively feeling, hearing, and seeing information. It’s how we perceive the invisible and spiritual world, listen to animals, and evolve. It’s also how we perceive the currents of our thoughts and feelings, which influence manifestation to a great degree.

Manifestation, A Key to Self-Discovery

 

Manifestation is part of awakening. We become aware of how we create our lives as we grow in consciousness. (Everyone is already manifesting, but it’s mainly unconscious.) If we imagine a loop of tape playing and replaying, we might wonder why it continues to play, or we might decide to change the tape. That’s the basic substance of manifestation.

When we realize that we have the power to change the tape, then we alter the direction of our lives. If this realization comes with awakening (and a higher level of vibrations), we know it’s important to create a life in alignment with the inner self. As we expand into light and love, we naturally want to create and experience more “good” in life. Ultimately, it’s beneficial to ourselves and the people around us because everyone benefits from a higher frequency.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Meditation is one of the keys to the realization of the heart’s desire. It brings alignment with the inner self, which quietens thoughts and stills emotions. It also gives connection to the universe, the biggest source of love and light.
  2.  Manifestation alters our perception. It teaches focus on the positive sensations and images of what we want to create. When we focus on the good in life and see the positive, we move into higher vibrations where more possibility and opportunity exist. By focusing the mind, we learn to alter our perceptions.
  3. Many of our perceptions are based on experience and belief, which occur as part of our encounters with life. It doesn’t mean that life always responds in this way, or the outcome never changes. It simply implies that we need to see and feel life differently–and believe that we can change it in a positive sense.
  4. Working with manifestation teaches discernment. Over time, we learn the value of “things” lies in their resonance with our heart. If our desire doesn’t align with the heart or our inner self, it won’t bring joy. But repeated experiences teach the difference between the desires of the inner and outer being.
  5. Focusing on a positive vision teaches control of lower emotions and thoughts. Part of any manifestation lies in the substitution of one thought and image for another. (We can’t change and/or control everything, but we can influence a great deal. Also, we can change our emotions and thoughts.)
  6. The practice teaches a great deal about inner power as well as the changes that occur when we connect with the universe and the inner self. We can use the same practice to alter other people’s lives–and the world. (Everyone and everything is happier in a higher frequency.)
  7. The heart space expands when we step into creating the vision of the inner self. We feel more love and peace. And the world becomes more beautiful.

Last Quarter Forecast

 

The moon moves into its last quarter, a time of developing abilities and expanding existent projects. It’s also important to consider aspects of life that require release, surrender, and faith. Additionally, this phase gives time to gather energy and focus before the solar eclipse/new moon on Sunday, Feb. 26.

We are moving through the last vestiges of the Piscean Age, which are exacerbated by Neptune in Pisces. Astrologer M. Kelly Hunter refers to the current global fear as “a mass hypnotic trance” that is transcended by focusing on the wave of universal love, which includes everything and everyone. (Next week’s eclipse/new moon intensely features Pisces; it’s a good time to rewrite the past.)

Sun (life) is currently in Aquarius and moves into Pisces on Feb. 18. Currently, Mercury (communication) in Aquarius conjuncts (close to) the sun, bringing in new waves of higher thoughts and a stronger ability to connect to the divine mind. Mercury is currently trine (harmoniously placed) with Jupiter (good fortune)  in Libra, bringing balance and harmony to the thinking process. (Both signs are in air, which can give space for inspired thought.)

This chart is hot! Venus, Mars, and Uranus sit in Aries, the fire sign, which rules beginnings. This placement ignites a tendency to make big changes and take physical action, but it’s not the right time. It’s far better to contemplate desires and consider their source—ego or inner self?

Mars (male energy, assertion) sits opposite to Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra, indicating strong actions can take us away from the benevolent forces of the big planet. Jupiter is also retrograde, slowing success and good fortune. (The other planets are direct, so it’s not a huge influence.) Jupiter also opposes Uranus in Aries, meaning to wait on taking action with spiritual intuitions.

Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus square (create tension) with Pluto, representing the underground, the subconscious, and transmutation. These aspects are not easy—and may represent some type of crisis or change for many people. On the other hand, staying centered in crisis is part of mastery.

Saturn (time, limitation) in Sagittarius offers help with fear and obstacles by encouraging our ability to tap into inner (and earned) wisdom. There is almost always a solution if we look deeply enough into our own being and sincerely ask for help.

Positive Aspects

Every chart has its own meaning and balance. There are some very beautiful trines included in this forecast.

  • Sun trines Jupiter for the next two days, giving insight into problems—and possibly solutions, which come in a very beneficial way. It’s a harmonious aspect, featuring inspired thought and the higher mind.
  • Mercury trines Jupiter, increasing the benefit of Sun trine Jupiter. It may be possible to meditate and hold the “feeling” or visual of a solution in our minds, then experience it in physical form. There is a special clarity with both trines occurring simultaneously. Or it may simply be a “gift” of seeing a better future, which we cannot yet completely perceive.
  • Saturn trines Uranus, offering an opportunity to transcend karma by contemplating and acting on concepts, which exist in the quantum field. For example, we may perceive how energy affects form or increases healing, or we may receive divine help from our angels and guides.

A Time to Transition

newsletter_colorswirl

 

It’s a time of transition when everything changes on a daily basis. We may feel light or darkness, the weight of mass consciousness or the uplifting of higher “light” consciousness, and view our karma or the uplifting of our spirit. It’s wonderful because many of us are awakening, and it’s difficult because many people are sleeping.

Here are a few tips.

  1. We see the darkness as we approach “more” light. We also feel it more because awakening opens our intuitive abilities, and we feel intuition through our physical senses, emotions, and thoughts. (It won’t last. We’ll eventually be uplifted by the light.)
  2. Part of the difficulty lies with group awakening. We feel others in the group—their darkness and their light. We haven’t learned how to align with others in our quest for a higher frequency. Stay patient, open, and see connection with the heart space of other light workers.
  3. Bless the good. It’s a strange occurrence, but life does become better when we focus on the good.
  4. We always have the power to tune into the light for solutions. We also have the power to choose positive emotions, change our words, or alter our thoughts. The “positive” holds a higher frequency, and it will eventually alter a great deal.
  5. When we can’t find the good in the world, we can always go within. There is always light within us and the universe. Our universal connection provides. (The light always returns if we are consistent with our practices. Admittedly, it is sometimes brighter on specific days.)
  6. Focus on the heart when in the outer world. When we focus on the heart, people often respond very differently, and life takes on a better “flow.”
  7. Time and space react very differently in the New Age. A desire and/or visualization may come into form immediately, or it may require numerous (almost unlimited) repetitions. The relationship of time and space have a great deal to do with geographic location, earth currents, and our openness to change, which can be karmic.
  8. On a strange level, we’re realizing energy is everywhere. New tools and devices have been invented to capture and use energy. The internet displays our choices when offering ads, books, movies, and possible connections, offering another version of how our thoughts and emotions reflect reality.
  9. When we realize the universe holds the power to deliver abundance, joy, love, and answers, we will tune into it more often. At this point, our group reality will change for better. (It’s not outside. It’s inside.)
  10. One of the biggest changes of the new age revolves around the resonance of love. Love is more about staying in a place of universal love, which is unconditional. It nourishes our body and soul, freeing us from personal preferences. (This doesn’t mean spending time with people who pull us downward, but it does mean freedom from the lower emotions we may have about them.)

Creating More Blessings

news_mandala

 

It’s interesting to note that it is possible to expand your blessings by altering the flow of your mind. When you learn to focus on universal connection, the direction of life often changes.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Imagine blessings as a gentle, soft wind. If you stand in the wind, it lifts your hair, brings warmth, and makes delightful sounds. Imagine this as an energy, which you can feel and touch. It is moving gently through your life, and you receive its loveliness. (In general, people tend anticipate or feel anxiety about future. In this case, you are simply receiving.)
  2. When you meditate, think about the feeling of blessings in your life. Imagine the sensation expanding and growing. Feel the universal connection as it flows through this feeling.
  3. Send love and light to everything good in your life. Practice seeing more of it. When you focus on anything, you expand it. This includes material objects, love from people, and success in life. (Think of the mind as a magnifying glass. Look at the good things!)
  4. When you desire change, bless what exists. Give thanks for the good things while visualizing new ones. If you work with light, you will always desire expansion and growth. Part of light work involves dealing with duality and finding interesting solutions.
  5. Open to larger blessings than you’ve imagined in the past. (I like to use the image of an open door with light flowing through it. The light represents blessings and love.)
  6. Take a few moments daily to grasp the loveliness of your light and the power of your inner being. Direct your light to a higher level on a daily basis.
  7. Expect blessings and look for life to turn and change its direction in a wonderful way. It’s said that the universe knows what you want before it is voiced. (It’s the dance between the spirit world and physical world that brings beautiful things to life.)

Full Moon Forecast, November’s Super Moon

astronomyconstellation

 

The full moon appears on Monday, Nov 14, and it is a super moon—the closest positioning of the earth and moon since 1948. This is a particularly powerful full moon, ushering in cosmic energies and ending the Scorpio moon cycle. With the moon placed in the water sign of Scorpio, there is an intense emphasis on emotions.

The Sun sits in the last degrees of Scorpio, an intense, intuitive sign. The Moon is opposite the Sun in Taurus, a fixed earth sign, which rules the earth, possessions, and physical life. One of the gifts of this moon is transforming spiritual desires and longings into physical form.

Both Sun and Moon are placed in feminine, magnetic signs, making it easier to “pull” our desires. Sun in Scorpio gives intuitive power to see beyond limitations by finding the right vision. It bestows the needed concentration to focus on the dream. Moon in Taurus brings a strong connection to the earth and physical body. Moon in Taurus also confers the ability “feel” our desire on a physical level with full sensation so that we can fully create it.

Mercury (thought, mind, communication) sits in Sagittarius, adding fire and creative expression to the line-up. This placement ignites our passions and spiritual pursuits. It can also give a feeling of restlessness. Mercury squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces, increasing the need of seeing through illusion and finding a higher truth.

Venus (feminine love, material possessions, beauty) is placed in Capricorn, and it’s not a perfect place for this planet. Venus in Capricorn brings a strange equation of strong and suppressed emotion, which can bubble to the surface in strange ways. With this placement, there’s an opportunity to build structure in relationships, but it’s also important to remember it’s more difficult to correctly convey emotion from the heart.

Mars (overall energy, assertion) recently moved in the sign of Aquarius, which encourages free thinking and the New Age. (Thank goodness!) Mars represents overall energy, and Aquarius represents individuals working together in groups to collect light and create change. It’s a very helpful energy at this particular time.

Mars trines (harmoniously) Jupiter (good fortune), which means our work can benefit from humanitarian efforts and sharing our light. Jupiter (good fortune) is opposite Uranus (spiritual change) in Aries, placing a focus on balance as opposed to new beginnings.

Saturn (time, limitation) trines Uranus in Aries, emphasizing the need to stay on the spiritual path as well as possible benefits for this focus. Saturn (time, karma) squares Neptune (mysticism), creating the continued emphasis on discerning the difference between illusion and truth, particularly on the spiritual path. Uranus and Pluto are more tightly squared, continuing periodic blasts of darkness as we walk toward the light.

Overall, there are many planetary placements for development of spiritual life, manifestation, and cosmic growth, but it requires a strong focus and commitment to love with a big helping of faith.

Sabian Symbol Reading, based on Lynda Hill’s Sabian Symbols

Sun is on 23 Scorpio, A Rabbit Metamorphosed into a Nature Spirt. This symbol speaks about the transmutation of a lower, physical form into more spiritual being—or a specialized state of being. The motion into a higher form and frequency is a natural change associated with spiritual work.

Moon sits on 23 Taurus, A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Jewels. This symbol speaks of physical rewards, wealth and gifts. To receive them, we must acknowledge our worthiness and our wiliness to receive.

Mercury is placed on 4 Sagittarius, A Little Child Learning to Walk with the Encouragement of Parents. This symbol refers to the need for support when learning new skills. It also speaks about the uncertainty of growing into spiritual gifts but taking the first steps—regardless of hesitancy.

Venus is on 3 Capricorn, The Human Soul in its Eagerness for New Experiences Seeks Embodiment. The symbol refers to new levels of consciousness, which will soon be revealed. It can refer to creativity, love, intuition, or a physical gift, but “something” will soon make itself known.

Mars is placed on 4 Aquarius, A Hindu Healer Glows with a Mystic Healing Power. This is a wonderful symbol for Mars, which refers to overall energy—particularly physical energy. Mystic healing power can refer to prana, light, or simply channeling the Divine, but it does indicate an increased ability to heal the self.

More About Manifestation

newsletter_nativeamerican

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way.

A Time of Awakening

intuitive

 

Admittedly, many people flow through the outer world as though nothing has changed. But it is the time of the Great Awakening when we can open the door to the “Field” and feel the flow of love and light. It’s also a time when everyone chooses to go higher or lower. (In yoga, it’s taught that we either become more of who we are or less of our true presence through practice. It’s a determining factor for everyone.)

Throughout the past three years, the patterns of energy work altered (along with the patterns and seasons of the earth.) When energy heightens, we have new perceptions. Everything begins to work differently.

Here are a few observations:

  1. The energy continually oscillates; it moves up and down. One day, everything is fine. The next day, it’s strange or exhausting. A few days later, it’s fine. (On the lower energy, negative patterns usually come to light. On the high energy days, we experience hope and happiness. In addition to learning about energetic patterns, we learn to conserve our own energy and observe how we use it in the flow of life. (Balance is an important part of the new paradigm.)
  2. With more light, everyone becomes more intuitive, gaining greater awareness of other people’s underlying thoughts and feelings. Eventually, vibrations will speak more loudly than words. The true feelings and actions of others will become apparent.
  3. Our collective energy is making changes in the world. Many send light and support on a regular basis to others. For those who can “see”, the light level is growing. We are also learning to vibrate above mass consciousness and lower group emotions. This trend will continue as we develop or connection with the inner self.
  4. It’s easier to send energy to others. Intuitive or psychic energy travels at a faster rate. It requires fewer “sends” and one or two clear visualizations can alter the pattern of a situation by lifting consciousness.
  5. The rules constantly change. There are a few constants such as working with the heart, returning to love, working with boundaries, and speaking our truth. Otherwise, energy responds to different rules, requiring constant experimentation for those who heal and send light.
  6. The quest for the inner self is the most fascinating mystery in our existence. Many people search for it in hope of answers. Awakening brings an incredible wave of love and understanding. True manifestation takes place through gamma waves, a state of super drive involving all portions of the brain. Gamma waves may only come through transmission from others and/or deeper levels of awakening and inner work.
  7. When we lift our consciousness and work with others, we connect with the Field in an entirely, different way. It amplifies our ability to pull in energy from many, new directions–and to apply it in new ways.
