Simple Solutions

 

These solutions were created for connection—to bring us into a calm, collected state so that we can contemplate life with a feeling of peace and hope. With practice, they take only a few moments to achieve. Substituting one state for another is part of awakening.

We usually attempt to solve problems from a perspective of upset and worry. Negative emotions and thoughts amplify worries and problems. While problem solving, try to refuse negative emotion. Go back into the beauty and love. Radiate the positive feelings to a possible concept of a solution. A concept can be a symbol of resolution – a circle, a pyramid, or a convergence of forces in a future reality.

Sending light is helpful. Pink or light blue light tend to calm situations. (I often send it to the part of me that is involved in more difficult aspects of life.) It’s important to know that aspects of the self—not all of the self—is involved in our problems. By sending light, we temporarily clear our involvement with the issue. We also take it to a higher frequency.

When we take a problem to a higher frequency, we are resolving aspects of the issue. Detachment and observation are required to send anything to the light. So, we immediately distance ourselves from the problem with this action. It’s also helpful to see a positive solution—if possible. When it’s not possible, it’s helpful to recall when life worked wonderfully and surprisingly well. The point is: thinking about problems doesn’t solve them.

Moving problems into a higher frequency alters them in mysterious ways. Here are few suggestions, but use your inner guidance. Feel free to make changes or use them in innovative ways.

1)      Other people can sometimes upset us. We catch their mood or become pulled down by their words. When this happens, recognize the motion of moving from a higher frequency into a lower one. Ask to move back into a higher frequency and envision holding it.

2)      Everyone is obsessed by their problems and worries to some degree. We create new ones when we resolve the old ones. It’s a part of evolution–we work on ourselves in layers. It’s perfectly okay. It is important to learn detachment about the process and move into a higher frequency. Having problems is part of the human condition—it’s how we learn and expand.

3)      A part of ourselves is involved in every problem. By sending light and love to this part of us, we move into greater healing and understanding. We also learn detachment and compassion.

4)      Using light, sound, or movement helps in attaining a desirable state of mind. Focus on a soft color, go for a walk, or listen to chanting or an inspirational talk.

5)      When the body becomes tired or the mind becomes overwhelmed, we lose our capacity to see life clearly. Exercise and meditation help a great deal.

6)      When talking about a problem, choose someone with a good vibration and insights into higher frequency. (People on a similar vibration tend to amplify the problem. People with a higher vibration can alter the frequency of the problem and help with healing.)

7)      When we hear a quiet, loving voice, we should listen. This is the voice of the inner self.

Why does it work?

When we ask for a higher frequency, we essentially say, “Allow me to have a different perspective on life. I want the experience of light and love. I want a better, higher feeling.” Thoughts like these can reach through time and space, cross the fabric of the universe, and open the quantum field–the substance of miracles.

New Moon and Fall Equinox: Balance, Beginnings, and Endings

 

In early fall, bright leaves intermingle with summer flowers, and the light grows dimmer. The early fall brings bright leaves, intermingled with summer flowers. As cooler weather appears, the trees are adorned with radiant colors, the sky turns clear blue, and the world sparkles. This beautiful transformation takes place between the signs of Virgo and Libra.

On a seasonal level, Virgo leads the transition from summer into fall, and we’re currently completing an astrological cycle, which ends/begins between December and April 2018. Many of the outer planets are within the last ten degrees of their sign (a sign=30 degrees), and this represents completion of a specific phase. (The eclipse brought in new energies, and we are completing our lessons with Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus.)

Currently, Virgo appears in as a stellium or cluster in Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus—all personal planets—for the New Moon, the void when the earth sit stills before moving into another cycle of expansion and change. A few days later, the Fall Equinox comes, and we slide into the sign of Libra, ruling balance, harmony, and relationships.

With many planets in Virgo, an earth sign, let’s look at the lessons/opportunities. Virgo alternately represents the virgin priestess (virgin=metaphysically pure), the perfectionist, and the servant. In all three cases, the character refers to work—a series of actions in the physical world, which produce a tangible result. With recent energetic changes, it may refer to the need to moving into purity, perfecting our perception of life, and serving more of the needs of the inner self. (It is a new beginning–a new way of living life for many.)

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life), and Mercury (communications) square Saturn in Sagittarius, representing the lessons of time. Our need to put life in order by attending to daily tasks creates tension with the desire for spiritual structure and expression. Sun and Moon are opposition Chiron (the wounded healer) in Pisces.. Much of the old Piscean energy seems to surround emotional drama and alternating emotions of love/hate (symbolized by two fishes swimming in opposite directions.) It’s time to mitigate past wounds and move into a different type of unconditional love where we see the higher self in “all” but create healthy, happy boundaries and give appropriately.

Mercury (communications) and Mars (masculine energy) are conjunct, meaning our thoughts will quickly influence our actions. Mercury trines Pluto (underworld, transformation), offering mental acuity to tap into universal resources and solve mystical mysteries. Mars (action) opposes Neptune (mysticism/illusion), indicating an inability to see through illusion and choose the right step. (Meditate before acting.) Mars trines Pluto, amplifying our desire and will to succeed–and turning up the general intensity of life.

It’s all about a new kind of love with Venus, who forms a lovely Grand Trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. Venus represents love, relationships, and material possessions. Saturn is about lessons of the past, discipline, and mitigating karma. Uranus in Aries is about new beginnings, quantum change, and the resonance of the New Age. (Grand Trines bestow the power to manifest.) Put it together, and the planets hint at finding a new form of love, shaped by the lessons of time and inspired by innovative, new ideas.

Jupiter (good fortune)  in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries. It indicates difficulty in translating new ideas into a form that promotes good fortune. (Take time to develop new ideas. Develop them, but wait for a better time for expression.) Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto (transformation, underworld) can cause a desire for success and outer fulfillment, which overrides wisdom.

Saturn (time, karma) trines Uranus, encouraging original thought and ideals about the New Age–and putting new thoughts into physical form. Saturn and Uranus trine the North Node, which points to the direction of our spiritual path. The North Node is in Leo, and it concerns finding the sensations and feelings of the heart–and using this as our North Star, the compass point of inner growth.

Fall Equinox

The inner planets move frequently like the stars in the night sky–always changing and never staying still. The Sun will move into Libra for the fall equinox on Friday, September 22. With Sun (outer life) and Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra, our focus will shift to creating balance, beauty, and justice. (Libra is the sign of the scales, and it’s ruled by Venus, the planet of love.)

The chart indicates the shape of patterns for the next three months to come as the world moves from the fruition of summer into the transformation of fall. Some of the notable aspects include Sun and Moon square (tension) with Saturn, which involves using the guidance of the past while working within the moment. Mercury and Mars remain in a trine (triangles are harmonious) with Pluto, giving insight and resources for solving problems. Venus continues to hold the lovely Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus, indicating the need to meditate on a new and wiser form of love.

Mercury (thought), Venus (love), and Mars (action) oppose Neptune (mysticism, illusion). Oppositions imply the existence of two, different conflicting thoughts,  emotions, or actions in this case. When we think about love, our illusions will appear. The same is true with thought and action. But it’s not “bad”. Actually, this happens with every positive manifestation as we recognize the fabric of our misunderstanding and/or a negative flow of thoughts, emotions, and actions.

On a larger level, Neptune rules the waters of the world and the sea of emotion within world consciousness. We may see changes in the world and/or make realizations about the flow of energy–the need to release personal restrictions and limited emotion. We may also see changes in the ocean as time passes.

Overall, the indication points to the importance of seeing through illusion, working with our inner/outer resources, and discovering a new way of sending, experiencing, and creating love. It’s one more step in the development of our relationship with the inner self.

Choosing a Higher Frequency

 

Part of spiritual work involves shifting our energy from lower to higher frequencies. It’s normal to feel oscillation, the swing between a higher and lower state when participating in spiritual work. We also react to other people’s vibrations, the perception of problems, and mass consciousness. In other words, specific aspects of life cause our frequency to descend.

Typically, we experience lower emotions in these circumstances. But there is always a way to ascend above an issue.

1) Raising our vibrations through meditation and devotion to practice always helps because this renews and strengthens our connection to the “light.” It raises our consciousness into a more awakened state.

2) Our vision and visualizations of life profoundly affect our experience of “real” life. Our vision of life is based on our perceptions and beliefs; it widens as we move into universal truth. Everyone creates visualizations of life, which are accompanied by emotions. (Ironically, we tend to amplify and review unhappy events more than positive ones. It requires changing our habits to see life in a different way.)

3) We also use projection and visualization in the outer world. For example, reflecting on pollution in the physical world is realistic, but if we create images in our mind, experience feelings of upset, and focus on it, we create more of the same. We can acknowledge a state as “truth” and follow it with a visualization, which creates resolution—or at least a higher vibration. For example, we could see a clean earth and ocean while imagining a beautiful planet.

4) Higher vibration is often the frequency needed for problem solving. Problems and patterns tend to exist on a lower frequency; solutions come on a higher vibration. (Healthy boundaries also come from the higher self.) Reaching this state of being can come from recalling positive memories, creating experiences, which bring happiness, and moving more deeply into connection. (Obviously, believing in a positive outcome is part of the work.)

5) Focusing on the heart space and the vibration of love can help a great deal with any situation because it teaches the art of placing the consciousness in one of the infinite qualities of the universe. (Pink light can be used for the sensation of love.)

The Love Frequency

Everyone wants more love. When you connect with the love “frequency”, you receive more of it. When you think about awakening, you automatically connect with energetic waves, which give the feeling of love. When you open your heart, you receive more light and love from the universe.

It’s interesting to realize how the placement of consciousness affects your experience. For example, when you think about light, you receive love. When you love yourself, it alters the flow of particles in your body and energy field. When you send love (pink light), it can alter relationships and bring healing. (Obviously, this type of work involves sincere feelings.)

  1. The ultimate source of light and love is the universe. It comes through meditation and contemplation—and by listening to the inner self. (You know when you find it because everything feels bright, beautiful, and still.)
  2. Finding universal love changes our perception of life. It reveals the inner self. You see, the inner self often differs from “who” you think you are. This part of the self feels life with a multiplicity of sensations. It speaks through intuition to lead you on your path.
  3. Finding the inner self means embarking on a passage of self-love. This involves boundaries, insights, loving the darkness within the self, and a willingness to see the truth. It also brings more love, compassion, and empathy. It’s a journey—not an immediate answer.
  4. The heart speaks more loudly as you step into love. It whispers about what you truly love, and it tells you about hurt and pain, which are sometimes hidden beneath the surface. You also become more vulnerable, and this means becoming brave.
  5. As you step into vulnerability, you begin to see how universal love heals. You can send light or love to others. You can hold a vision of healing for the world. You can send love, comfort, and compassion. You want to see abundance and success for others.
  6. Love teaches you about change, which may mean changing yourself. Perhaps, you learn to love your body or your life. Maybe, you speak more kindly or see the underlying light in everything. It leads to a shift into a higher state of being.
  7. As you learn more about love, you accept the human state of duality. You know the state of love shifts from one duality into another. Life provides the opportunity to shift sadness into happiness or loneliness to love, but you learn to rely on the beauty of your heart to bring you back into center–where the universe awaits.

NOTE: Everyone has moments of “not” feeling love. This can be useful if you are willing to see these dark places and moments as points, which offer the potential for change and growth. (Accept this as the part of you that longs for change, and send light to the feelings. Assume you have the ability to change the circumstances, thoughts, and feelings, which are associated with this state.)

Helping the World

 

Our light is one of the best things to offer to the world when the energetic and physical weather is stormy and chaotic. We send light from our heart and soul, and it alters everything it touches because light is the highest vibration in the universe.

We also alter a great deal when we learn to see and feel life differently—as opposed to the lower, negative vibrations, which are learned from our culture. When we see solutions and send love, life changes. When many of us focus, the solution often comes.

  • It only takes a few moments to send light, love, or a prayer. When a place, situation, or person appears in the mind, send light. Sending light is always useful. (Of course, the “wattage” of our light is a determining factor in any outcome. For this reason, every spiritual and philosophical system urges mediation, prayer, and inner contemplation as these practices raise our vibrations. Obviously, it’s helpful to practice and connect before sending light.)
  • When we are in the path of a storm or earth change, it’s helpful to protect the area around us as opposed to attempting to alter the weather. We can see everything as secure, peaceful, and safe around us. (A ten mile radius is easiest.) Using sacred geometry such as a pyramid or a circle is also useful.
  • When viewing photos of people in distress, see the opposite. Send comfort, peace, and love. Visualize the area as the opposite of the photo or image. (Seeing or employing the opposite energy balances energy. It is one of the foundations of Eastern medicine. For example, treat hot with cold when a person has a fever.
  • Detach from any fear about earth changes or global unrest. Instead, focus on the part of the self that is always connected, safe, and peaceful. Think about how we are all divinely connected through the inner self.Imagine support and help (on the physical plane) flowing into the situation. Angels and higher beings come in many forms, ranging those who are inspired to help, miraculous synchronicities, and alterations in frequency and consciousness. (When we cannot physically help – save through donations and prayers – we can visualize many positive changes.)

Developing Our Skills

Part of spiritual development involves helping others because we are connected by threads of luminous light. As we connect to light and learn to send love – as a pure energy – our personal frequency soars, and our vibrations increase. Of course, we can only send love and light correctly when our intention is pure with a true desire to help and heal.

  • Light is best extended to others and geographical locations when our vibration, the pulse of our entire being, is high. A state of connection can be created through meditation, observing nature, and listening to the inner self.
  • It may require many repetitions. Part of practice is patience. Send light and love whenever the mind moves to a particular situation—personal or global. Release any negative thoughts such as worry, identification with pain and loss, and desire for a particular outcome. (The universe knows where the energy goes and how to best apply it.)
  • After sending, ask if the meditation was effective—or if it requires adjustments. (Learn to listen for a yes or no.) Be creative and work to change imagery and feelings. Notice your feelings for the next hour or so. (Sending light correctly should feel energizing and supportive. Sending too much energy can feel draining.)
  • People, who meditate and focus on the heart, are more powerful than they think. Imagine 1 million people sending light to an area for an entire day. It does have an impact.
  • As we learn how to effectively send light to others, we develop many skills, which are useful in personal growth and cosmic evolution. As always, the universe adjusts our efforts, makes corrections, and sends suggestions. Listen.

Gently Altering the World

 

Maybe, we can’t change the world instantly, but there is a great deal we can do in the world around us. 

Part of the challenge lies in becoming creative–and seeing and feeling something different. If we hold light and change our perception, we alter the frequency around us. This act also leads to knowledge of the inner self. 

Here are my favorite techniques.

  1. Focus on a personal feeling of peace. Notice how it feels and expand this inner state to the surrounding area. Imagine everyone and everything encompassed n a wave of peace. Feel the peace like waves in an ocean.
  2. Send pink light to every particle and atom in the space around you. Pink light is unconditional love, and it lifts everything in its sphere. (Sometimes, it’s easier to send pink light as opposed to “love” because we color the feeling of love with many personal preferences.)
  3. It’s important to learn to pause whenever we feel discordant energy between ourselves and another human being. It’s helpful to pull back our energy and briefly see the other person’s point of view or feeling. From this place, imagine seeing their inner light. (This is simply to clear energy and remove them from our energy field.) In general, pause whenever emotions are strong. Pull back into the inner self.
  4. Separate from mass consciousness (lower global consciousness, including emotion) often. The entire world is changing, and it moves between light and darkness. Ask for alignment with the inner self when life feels heavy and difficult. Focus on the feeling of the flow when accompanied by a wave of happiness. (The overall energy should change in an hour or two.)
  5. Learn to see the opposite of the difficult side of life. The images in our mind travel very quickly as we become more psychic. If we focus on a negative, world happening, we actually intensify it. It’s helpful to see the opposite of the difficulty, move into the heart, and ask the universe to provide the feeling of an answer. (Of course, it’s also helpful to send the feeling of the answer out into the world. Somewhere, someone is meditating and/or praying. They will receive the feeling and amplify it.)
  6. Spend time in nature. Ground the body and take time to see the perfection of leaves, flowers, and wildlife. This practice eases the pressure, aligning body and spirit.
  7. Practice faith, hope, and courage. It takes faith to create strong, positive visions. It takes courage to continue to see them, and it requires faith and hope to make a consistent effort. But it’s also how we learn to believe in ourselves–and our inner work.

New Moon/Powerful Solar Eclipse

 

It’s a red-hot chart for the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 with seven planets placed in fire. The element of fire inspires, ignites, and excites; it exudes passion, excitement, and a desire for the quest. It’s electrical, intense energy that confers sparks of creativity and emotion. 

While the chart is fabulous, presenting many, harmonious trines and aspects with Uranus (new age, sudden change, awakening), there is a passive quality imbued by six planets in retrograde and the New Moon phase. (The New Moon acts as a void. In the physical world, everything lies dormant during this time.  The same is true with retrogrades.)

Any eclipse is like throwing a circuit breaker; the energy goes off and on. But it’s more intense with a solar eclipse, and this one is definitely a big event. It contains some of the best aspects and energies in months, but it’s important to meditate and focus on dreams and desires that relate to the inner self. (It’s definitely not about everything moving into a higher form—all at once. It’s about finding our inner light and using it to shape life.)

Sun and Moon are conjunct on Leo 29, symbolized by “A Mermaid Waiting for a Prince to Bring Her Immortality”. In fairy tales and myth, the prince/princess symbolizes the union of the two sides of the self—the physical and spiritual. Obviously, this is our quest. Additionally, it’s denoted by the conjunction (close to) of Sun, Moon, and Mars to the North Node, which represents our spiritual purpose.

Sun (life), Moon (inner self, emotions), and Mars (action, masculine) trine Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) in Aries. They are Grand Trines, which make it easier to create desires in physical form. The challenge lies in discerning the desires that align with the inner self as opposed to simply creating the opportunities that we think we want.

It’s likely that meditation can bring realizations, insights, and intuitions about the path of integration, but it will take time to unravel the information. Mercury (communications, mind) is retrograde in Virgo, which can help in a surprising sense by opening the right brain and encouraging healing and creativity.  (Mercury can represent the Trickster or the Higher Mind, which is accessed through the heart.)

Venus (love, material abundance, feminine) in Cancer exaggerates emotion in a “charged” chart. It can amplify sensitivity and emotional energy.  Venus square Jupiter can undermine motivation and interest in money and wealth. Venus opposes Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), which can bring passion and intensity or jealous and obsessiveness.

Mars (action, masculine) in Leo brings a desire for creative, passionate action, but it’s best to wait and reflect. Mars trine Uranus brings wonderful, innovative ideas, but the energy is uncertain and a bit erratic for putting ideas into form. (While waiting for a better time, create a beautiful notebook with fabulous ideas along with a schedule for bringing them into form. Send light to it each day.) With Mars in Leo, the caution always lies with the explosive quality of emotion and drama. (The opposite state involves remaining centered and calm.)

Jupiter in Libra increases the desire for beauty, balance, and justice. An opposition with Uranus can intensify feelings of boredom and bring a desire for sudden change. Jupiter squares Pluto, indicating a tendency to stretch too much into possibility and opportunity. It’s wise to stay practical and align with the energy by taking small, focused steps.

Retrograde and Outer Planets

Uranus

 

The Solar Eclipse/New Moon Chart presents a number of aspects. Many planets including Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron are in retrograde position. When many planets are in retrograde, it is a time to review, rest, and dream.

Sun, Moon and Mars in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, amplifying the ability to use spiritual and physical lessons in the past to create a more orderly, aligned life. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn also trine Uranus, opens our mind to greater concepts of awakening and possibility.

Sun, Moon, and Mars conjunct the North Node (spiritual aspiration and direction), and Saturn and Uranus trine the North Node. In many ways, the chart is culmination of viewing life from the heart—and with courage—as we work together to combine the old and new worlds as a creation of love and light.

Tips:

  • It’s important to think about the power of manifestation—and the possibility of larger, better creations in the light. We may want to learn how to send light instead of reacting—or see a different outcome in place of a difficult one.
  • Light comes from inner work. We find it in meditation and reflection. Six planets in retrograde support the need for reflection and introspection.
  • With many planets in fire, there is a desire for action. But it’s not the right time. Use visualization, call angels and guides, and know the right time is coming. Wait.
  • We’re receiving a great deal of information about change and integration of time (Saturn) and awakening (Uranus). The eclipse will deliver new energies, but it will probably take time to translate them into clear thoughts, concepts, and forms.
  • Watch emotions and work to stay centered. It’s not the time for dramatic outbursts. Stay focused on work and routines. Build a better version of the self in the physical world.

Sabian Symbols based on Lynda Hill’s interpretations  

Sabian symbols give an additional interpretation for the degree of each planet.

Sun and Moon are on Leo 29, “A Mermaid Has Climbed to the Rocky Shore of a Bleak Coast; She Awaits the Prince Who Will Bring Her Immortality.” The mermaid represents the water element–a deeper understanding of unconditional love and emotion, which results from spiritual work. The Prince represents the inner self, the relationships developed and deepened from intuitional work.

Immortality—or life without duality—is a result of understanding spiritual law. It is also the conscious expression of the “true” self in physical life that results from change, sacrificing aspects of the outer self, and shaping reality into new forms.

Mercury retrograde is placed on Virgo 9, “An Expressionist Painter Making a Futuristic Drawing.” A painter creates a representation of what s/he sees and experiences in the physical world. A futurist painter uses creativity to represent his/her perception of the future.

The symbol can relate to the need to project thoughts, images, and ideas into the future for possible manifestation. Rather than simple reviewing ideas, it’s important to align the imagery with a structure, which contains the possibility of realization—and to take action to put them into form.

Venus sits on Cancer 25, “A Leader of Men Wrapped in an Invisible Cloak of Power.”  The Invisible Cloak refers to the power of good, which includes inner beauty and strength. All power involves the “test” of right use.

We must find the appropriate way of sharing our power of light, which involves love, healing, and help—without enabling the weak or helping those who may misuse it. There’s also a responsibility to develop our gifts and share them accordingly. On a higher level, individuals, who are aligned with light, have a cloak of power and protection known as the universal force.

NOTE: Aspects with Venus are difficult this week, and it’s important to know the “cloak” of power is there—even when we don’t feel it.

Mars is placed on Leo 21, “Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap Their Wings Trying to Fly.” The symbol refers to intoxication of some kind through food or water. The substance has caused the chickens to forget their limitations. (While chickens can fly—if their wings are not clipped—the symbol refers to overriding our abilities and forgetting to see our limitations.)

Mars is action, and it refers to our work in the physical world. It’s important to mentally review projects on a practical level before taking action. With Mercury retrograde, it’s particularly important.

Jupiter is placed on Libra 21, “A Crowd upon a Beach”. The symbol depicts many people in a lovely location, enjoying the sun and water. A beach is typically a place for relaxation and connection with nature. (Mingling with a crowd can feel wonderful or lonely, but the enjoyment of nature is a wonderful aspect of life.) NOTE: Many of us will meet in nature while watching the eclipse!

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.
