Good Things II

Image by Ellen Vaman

I’m listing some of my favorite things, ranging from books to medicinal herbs and crystals. You’ll find links and suggestions. I am NOT an affiliate with any of these people or services. I simply like them — and thought you might, too.

Medicinal Foods

Amazing chocolate formulas. The green drink is wonderful, and they offer great recipes. Everything is made in Hawaii. It may take a few days for delivery. Click here.

Energetix

Energetix formulas are quite good, and they can be found on Amazon.

Tinctures for Health

Made by a young herbalist from mushrooms gathered near the Pisgah National Forest, I’ve found these products invigorating and supportive of better health. (Products are “local” if you’re on the east coast.)

chaga

Lion’s Mane mushroom (Hericium erninaceus) has been used for millennia by Buddhist Monks to improve brain function.  Two of its unique classes of constituents hericenones and erinacines have been found to increase Nerve Growth Factor (stimulate nerve regeneration.)

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is called the King of Mushcrooms because of its anticarcinogenic, immunomodulatory, antitumor, adaptogenic, anti-mutagenic, geno-protective, antiviral, and antioxidant properties.  (David Wolfe is perhaps chaga’s most famous advocate and author of the only book dedicated to the fungus.)

Full Moon Forecast: Time for a Big Shift!

Galactic Center

The December full moon is called the cold moon. It appears in late fall when the trees are bare, and the stars are bright. This moon is also a super moon–closer to the earth than usual—and heightens the energies of the aspects and positions of the planets. In many ways, this chart is a preparation for the movement of planets in the coming months.

The Moon (emotions, inner self) is placed in the air sign of Gemini, an air sign that represents duality. Mercury will move retrograde on the day of the Full Moon, and Mercury and Saturn will conjunct Galactic Center.

Galactic Center is in the center of the Milky Way; it radiates aspiration, energy, and motivation. It exudes love and light. Mercury (thought, communications) and Saturn (time, karma, lessons) sit in conjunction with Galactic Center. The position indicates reception through the higher mind (Mercury) and understanding of lessons on a higher level (Saturn). Think quantum change!

Sun, Moon, and Venus square Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can cause confusion when reading between truth, spirit, and illusion. In other words, it creates difficulty with discernment with the direction of life, emotions, and love relationships. It can cause heightened sensitivity and artistic insights—or over-reaction. (Mercury retrograde adds to the cloudiness. Think of a foggy morning when the shapes of objects are hidden by mist.)

Nevertheless, the Galactic Center is powerful, and we can absorb information and insights, which will be revealed later. Venus (love, feminine) is placed in Sagittarius, and this placement helps. It’s possible to gain energy through love—by focusing on Sagittarian pursuits such as nature, physicality, and the joy of deep focus and/or meditation.

Mercury retrograde can be challenging during the holiday season. It creates a period of dormancy for a few weeks before the solstice—when we encounter another big shift. Seriously, Mercury retro is about resting and aligning with the quiet beauty of life. It’s not about new projects, and it moves life into a slower pace. (Move through life with intent and intuition. Rest, repair, and review.)

Mars (overall energy, male) opposes Uranus, causing hidden anger to surface. It’s important to remember that repressed anger often involves karmic patterns, and it’s impossible to receive light until we move through them. (When life repeats, ask the universe to help with changing the self.)

Mercury and Saturn trine Uranus, which can help with spiritual insights, alignment with guides and angels, and opening our minds to larger possibilities. It also aids with perception of the conjunction with Galactic Center.

Mars and Uranus square Pluto (subconscious). We continue to work on hidden issues, which perplex and limit us. Mercury and Saturn square Chiron, raising old wounds to the surface. We’ll encounter the emotions and energies (memories) of wounding, but the answers will likely come after the squares are released.

We will encounter important astrological changes in the coming months. The full moon gives time to prepare by connecting with the inner self–and perceiving our potential as spiritual and physical beings.

Working with the “Wave”

 
In metaphysics, the wave can refer to water signs and emotion, or it can refer to oscillation–the motion between the new reality and the old one.  Emotions occur as the result of an oscillation or movement between thought and physical sensation in the material world.
 
Metaphysics teaches us to pay attention to the heart and the inner voice when life is smooth–and when it is turbulent. By paying attention to the moment, we can observe life and deepen our connection because life moves in patterns of up and down—creating the sensation of duality.
Working with the energies of the shift from the old to the new world involves dealing with oscillation, which occurs within ourselves. If we can observe the motion by connecting with our inner self, it ceases. We progress on our spiritual path. (Transforming and raising our vibrations requires practice and patience, but it is worth the work!)
Tips:
1) When life moves easily, it’s good to expand the energy outwardly into the present and the near future. It’s also helpful to “see” good things for others and project a better, happier world. (Scientific experiments prove “seeing” good for others brings healing and positive energy into our lives.)
2)  When the emotional/mental waves are at a lower point, it’s helpful to know they will pass more quickly when we tap into the spiritual self. We can replace lower thoughts with positive thoughts; we can substitute a positive emotion for a lower one. (We do this by meditating on peace, harmony, joy, or the feeling of a higher vibration.)
3) It’s helpful to know emotions are contagious. We may pick them up from mass consciousness, other people, or locations with a lower frequency. We also receive lower vibrations when listening or reading (simultaneously) about negative events. Often, the feeling will pass when we know it doesn’t originate from the self.
4) Positive emotions occur at higher frequencies, and negative emotions occur at lower frequencies. It’s helpful to raise personal frequency by envisioning pink light, asking how it feels when connected with the inner self, or spending time in nature.
5) It’s important to discern if negative emotions occur because we are glimpsing an undesirable truth about a person or situation, seeing through a personal pattern, or seeing life in a light, which may not feel uncomfortable (yet.) In this case, rest, remove the mind from the problem, and gently reflect. Ask for help from the universe in discerning the answer.
6) The inner self always has a vision of a beautiful life, and angels are always around us. The “invisible” world (or quantum field) is said to be more real than visible world. It answers when we call on it—and when we’re ready to change.
7)  When we observe a thought or emotion, it becomes quieter. The inner self generates positive emotions and thoughts. It delivers peaceful answers. By putting our consciousness in this place, life changes. (This is also true about the outer world, and this practice can help in finding right action.)
8) Many teachings speak of “low” and “high” points as storms and rainbows. We think storms are difficult, and rainbows signal a time of abundance. Both are illusions on the path on life. Beyond the illusion is the path of light. If we remain on the journey, we find (and become) the light.

New Moon Forecast: Transformation

 

The New Moon appears on Saturday, November 18, and we’ll feel its effect for the next 10-14 days. The New Moon creates a void, a useful time for releasing, resting, and revitalizing our plans. The focus of the New Moon chart is transformation, healing, and opening to higher forms of love. Many healing aspects are mixed amidst the challenges.

The Sun (outer self, life) and Moon (inner life, emotions) are poised together in Scorpio on the same degree—with Venus (love, material goods, feminine) and Jupiter (good fortune) also placed in Scorpio. Birth, death, sex, and transformation—along with intense, psychic energy—are represented by this sign.

Essentially, Scorpio symbolizes the dark void, which we travel through when creating change. (The feeling of the void is increased by the New Moon.) No one likes the void because we don’t know the outcome. But light always guides us to a higher, better place–if we persevere.

Venus (love, feminine) and Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) are conjunct (close) in this chart. When love and expansion come together, it’s helpful and tends to bring beauty, hope, and opportunity into our lives. Venus and Jupiter trine (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can lead us into a greater “feeling” of love. (Neptune rules water or emotion, and this aspect is harmonious. The highest expression of emotion is universal love.)

Mercury sits in Sagittarius, a fire sign, encouraging optimism, rapid thought, and interest in spirituality. Mercury conjuncts Saturn (time, karma), aiding with devotion and self-discipline. Mercury trines Uranus (awakening), which expands our ability to transcend the lower mind and to receive information from the higher, universal mind. The planet also squares (tension) Neptune, and this can cause confusion when looking at life (personal and global). Mercury square Neptune makes it difficult to separate truth and illusion. (Think of fake news, etc.)

Mars remains in Libra, which is not a wonderful placement. Mars rules action, warriors, and male energy, but Libra likes to deliberate and slowly weigh the matters of life. Currently, Mars opposes (2 opposite energies) Uranus (awakening, sudden change), and it can cause a feeling of pressure.

Everyone experiences anger about the state of world and/or their personal life. It happens, and we’re in the process of clearing it. Mars opposite Uranus can churn up anger, but it’s important to express through higher channels such as boundaries, acknowledging other people’s feelings, and speaking from the heart. (We could realize much misunderstanding occurs in relationships because of soul contracts.)

Mars squares (tension) Pluto, and it’s the same lesson on another level. Pluto (transformation, subconscious) has a way of releasing illusions about life and teaching us about how the universe would like us to align with Divine Will. (We can release anger by sending it up to the light, move into action on a new project, or transform it by changing our selves.)

Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) remain trine, helping us to integrate the old world and the new one. It simply makes acceptance of the changes in the world a bit easier—along with giving innovative ideas that can blend with structures from the past.

Sun and Moon (life and inner self) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. This aspect can align us with inner healing in a gentle way. Mercury (communication) and Saturn (time, karma) square Chiron, so it may take thought and time to incorporate the information received during the New Moon period.

Notes:

  1. The opportunity for transformation and healing comes with this chart. It’s important to decide where we want healing and change. Make decisions, plans, and listen by listening to your inner self.
  2. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) can awaken the dreams of our soul, particularly through day dreaming and meditation, It can reawaken our inner longings. Venus (love) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Neptune, which can align us with personal and universal love.
  3. In this chart, Mercury (mind, communications) is most useful on an intuitive level. Sometimes, the best answers come through meditation.
  4. Aspects between Mars, Uranus, and Pluto ask for release of frustration and anger to a higher source, the Universe. True transformation comes from exploring our hidden thoughts, emotions, and beliefs–and shining light on them.
  5. Sun and Moon trine Chiron. We will likely receive glimpses and hints of self-healing, which always involve self-love.

Five Ways to Find More Light

 

With current shifts in the world, it’s not always comfortable to live in a sea of change. It is possible to shift our consciousness to a higher point–and vibrate above the lower frequencies. It takes practice and repetition to do anything, but life feels much better when we remember how (and where) to change our consciousness.

  1. Nature always helps. Sit under a tree or go for a walk. (The needles of evergreens provide cleansing energy. Hold them between the fingers for 30-60 seconds.) Ponder the expanse of sky, and focus on the line between the earth and heaven. This line provides a great deal of energy. Ask nature to help by easing pain and lifting the spirit. (Nature listens.)
  2. When afraid and/or depressed, focus on the inner self. Think about connecting to the universe–and the sensation of light. (Focus on the feeling of sunlight, if necessary.) This simple act repels the darkness and alleviates fear.
  3. Become neutral. Learn to refrain from judging others–even when they’re wrong. Staying neutral means observing the situation and pulling back from reaction.
  4. Remain patient about life. The light is growing even as the darkness becomes apparent. The end of one cycle is the beginning of another cycle. It’s wise to surrender to the process while envisioning a new level of happiness and peace. (This is true on a personal and outer level.)
  5. Take time to love the self. Reflect on the many expressions of love, which range from fierceness to tenderness, unconditional giving to strong boundaries, and self-nurturing to surrendering to the flow of life. Oddly, loving the self (in the right way) is helpful in developing the power to send love and light to others.

Full Moon Forecast

 

November’s full moon on the 4th is particularly lovely, and this forecast touches on spiritual vision and the use of will. In metaphysics, love, will, and power are three qualities, which are developed on the path of light and love. (Venus is very present in this chart, so love is provided—if we tap into it.) Overall, the chart presents beautiful, uplifting energy along with the ever present challenges, which can create both growth and change.

Sun (life) in Scorpio heightens vision, strength, and magnetism. Scorpio is water, representing emotion and mysterious intuitive insights. Moon in Taurus accentuates persistence, will, discipline, and the ability to put concepts into physical form. It is an earth sign, heightening our ability to shape matter through consciousness in the physical world.

Mercury (thought, communications) is placed in Scorpio, and it expands our power to perceive and communicate spiritual mysteries and information. It sheds light on the hidden world and brings information to the surface. This placement can aid in discerning the relationship between feelings and thoughts.

Venus (love, beauty, relationships) is beautifully placed in Libra. Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus, so we may glimpse moments of  the true feeling of harmony and love in relationships, or we may notice disharmony. (In moments of disharmony, we can see the opposite of our experience. When experiencing harmony, we can expand the feelings.) Harmony and love tend to increase beauty and wealth.

Mars (action, male) sits in Libra, creating balance between the female and male principals in life. It also bestows the “feeling” of how life could look and feel if we embraced harmony, beautify, and balance. With Mars in Libra, an air sign, we may perceive needed changes on a mental or emotional level but lack the energy to make alterations. It’s helpful to observe and wait a day or two before pushing into small changes.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is placed in Scorpio. Like the full moon, it can shed light on the darkness. Good fortune is often created by finding our gifts, hidden in the darkness of the past, and finding the bravery to step forward on a new path. Growth also comes from compassion, and seeing/creating goodness for others. It’s how we see light in the dark.

Aspects

Aspects speak of the geometry between planets, the shapes and energies that flow between them. Aspects with the inner planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter) affect our personal life. Outer planets speak of group consciousness, energies, and global change.

Sun in Scorpio conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (expansion, growth), and it aids in understanding how to travel through our personal darkness to find light, grace, and redemption. Sun trines (harmonious) Neptune in Pisces, opening the door to mystical realizations and increasing the possibility of seeing through illusion.

Moon in Taurus is in opposition (2 opposite energies) to Jupiter in Scorpio. Our desire to build and create a new life (Moon) is opposed to our need to see beneath the surface of life (Jupiter). In spiritual work, it is necessary to see how we block and oppose our inner desires—or recognize such forces in our lives. After this realization, life often becomes more supportive. (Moon also trines Pluto in Capricorn, increasing our ability to become resourceful and find answers.)

Venus conjuncts (close to) Jupiter, indicating love of self can lead us through the darkness and into exceptional growth. Venus opposes (2 opposite energies) Uranus, which can cause strong, erratic emotions and sudden change. The desire to experience life in a particular way (Uranus) and the need to love and understand relationships on a deeper level conflicted in this position. (Think, meditate, and wait to act.) Venus also square Pluto, which creates tension about the use of power and can bring subconscious memories to the surface. (Focus on love, and the conflicts will fade.)

Mars (male, assertion) squares (tension) Pluto (underworld, transmutation). It covers the topics of sex and power, which have appeared everywhere in the past few weeks. Of course, the aspect includes larger energies. It’s about using our power wisely and kindly—and remembering that the best world changes come from love, compassion, and vision.

Jupiter (good fortune) opposes Uranus (awakening, sudden change). We’ll move between 2 sets of energy with this aspect. Jupiter wants a slow, deep look at life, and Uranus desires a huge burst of energy directed into the new world. Jupiter trines (harmonious) Neptune, asking us to exchange negative emotions for mystical love; it can also enhance dreams. (Journal them.)

Saturn (time, karma) trines (harmonious) Uranus (awakening, change), offering help with the current transition from the Piscean and Aquarian Ages. It helps in integrating the old and new concepts of both world.

Mercury (mind) trines (harmonious) Chiron (the wounded healer), which helps in using the mind to transcend old wounds. Saturn (time, karma) squares (tension) Chiron, and it brings old memories and pain to the surface. Use the mind to create possibilities such as feelings and visuals that travel in the opposite direction. This action brings in new energies that lift the soul and heal the body.

Sacred Geometry: Designs for the Soul

Interview with Rowena Kryder, reprinted Courtesy Spirit of Maat

 

Julia: How were you introduced to Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: I was never really introduced; it arose from within. The meanings of the twelve energy patterns, as well as other patterns, are really just an observation of what goes on in nature and design.

This doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for teachers. But I have learned most of it on my own.

Julia: Where should one start with understanding the patterns of Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Let’s begin with the point. The point in Sacred Geometry is the location of the center — it is the point of the compass. This is the place of connection to the Prime Source, the Divine One, the Unity of All Things. And this central point is inherent in all of the patterns of Sacred Geometry. There is nothing without the point.

The point represents, in a way, focus and Divine origin. The Hindus have the Bindu, which is basically the same. The center of every flower or of every planet or every sun is this point. The focal point is inherent in all things.

Scientists don’t think this way. They observe the sun and the planet from the outside, and say, “It will burn out,” or “Life will disappear within a certain time.” They say this because there is only so much energy. They are measuring everything with the idea of only so much energy. Scientists believe in entropy — the running down of the universe.

The possibility that such diverse form as exists in our Universe could have been created by chance simply does not exist. This is an aside from Sacred Geometry that it nevertheless touches upon.

If one considers that there is a Divine Source in this point, in the center of every sun, planet, star, plant, or person, then we may realize that each from has its own eternal regenerator within it.

If one is always connected to Divine Source, then one doesn’t need to run down at all.

Order — the opposite of entropy — comes from within, from this life-giving point. That point represents the “central” part of everything.

There is a great deal that all of us could do if we only put our consciousness into this point. This knowledge and understanding is part of the value of Sacred Geometry.

Think what you could do with simple meditation by merely focusing on the symbol of the point. This is a real way, a practical way, to actually regenerate by tuning into Source. Focusing on our central point, we are linked with the Eternal, the Transcendent, the Divine, the Absolute. That is the point of all origin.

Julia: Could you explain codes and archetypes, and how they are involved in the way you work with Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Patterns, or symbols and codes, are delineated tools for understanding that are given to use from Prime Source. When we understand how to unravel the code or pattern, we receive a gift or an understanding.

To understand Prime Source, then, we have to decode the symbols.

There is a genetic code, and a language code. We have to rise in consciousness to understand these codes, and then we become closer to the Prime Source.

Archetypal patterns deal with many worlds. There are the spiritual world, the cultural world, the natural world, and so on, with archetypical patterns for each of these. Also, at any given point in time, there are older and newer archetypes.

We can use archetypal patterns as an intermediary to help us move or transform energy.

For example, intensity is an old quality that could be negative or positive. Intensity came from duality, and it was a focus that helped us move through things.

Now, however, we are becoming “whole-hearted,” which is a different type of focus that involves all of us, our hearts, without the duality. This is part of the move into the fifth dimension — living through our hearts and staying centered, instead of focusing through the will.

We are learning to see the interconnectedness of all things, rather than looking at things from the standpoint of gratification.

Julia: You mentioned twelve major energy patterns. What are they and what do they mean?

Rowena: The astrological signs are a division of the 360-degree circle into twelve energies or patterns. Also within the circle are four triplicities of the division of energies: fire, earth, air, and water.

So the twelve basic symbols or patterns can be correlated with the zodiacal signs. I’m listing them in this order.

Pattern #1: Aries (Fire)  Aries is the step. It is the way in which one preserves, through a step-by step process. Certain people from cultures like Mexico and the Middle America created a stepped pyramid form.

Pattern #2: Taurus (Earth)  The step moves us into Taurus, which represents the maintaining of substance. Substance is a dense, preserving type of approach.

Pattern #3: Gemini (Air)  Gemini relates to the branch. It has to do with choice points. And making a choice relates to duality, the binary code of “on” or “off” represented by the Twins. It also is about distribution of information or energy. We can see this in the body through the branching systems of the lungs and blood, or in the branches of trees. The beauty of trees is that in them, what normally falls — sap, blood, water, fluid — rises, and what normall rises — light — descends from the leaves. So the distribution or the branching represents alchemical change.

Pattern #4: Cancer (Water)  The spiral or vortex correlates with Cancer. The vortex creates energy flow. It is a generator, and it could be symbolized as a spiral galaxy, generating everything — stars, planets, everything living. There are two types of vortexes: open and closed. A closed vortex has two points at each end and a circle in the center. An open vortex has the point in the center, with open circles at each end. The movement of the generating spiral in any vortex is connected with the Golden Mean spiral. The Golden Mean acts as a kind of arc between Prime Source and living beings. All spirals generate and create energy in a similar way.

Pattern #5: Leo (Fire)  Leo is the radial, and its function is broadcasting. It is for maintaining codes. In the phenomenal world, it is just a star distinguished by its radiance. Flowers mirror Leo: They are little suns on Earth, and many of them have the radial form. They may be in diverse color, but there is meaning in the color.

Pattern #6: Virgo (Earth)  Virgo is the loop, the tube torus or doughnut shape. It is turning inside out. It could be a knot, like the Celtic designs, or a link, folding in on itself. The tube torus is like that, it is turning inside out or around, looping inside out, and it has to do with the transformation of substance, or cycles, like the turning of day into night, or the turning of the seasons. The knot is the cycle. Also, the aspect of transformation of substance relates to the food chain and digestion — how all of the animals and plants interact. There is a hierarchy, here — for example, there are billions of grains and comparably a few lions. There is a pyramid. We will evolve to the point where we do not eat animals, and eventually eat very little at all. The more lightly we eat, the higher our consciousness, and this is definitely the direction to go in. Also, what nourishment we do take in should be very useful. So Virgo has to do with the purification of substance into body or consciousness.

Pattern #7: Libra (Air) : Libra relates to the column, the straight vertical line. It has to do with balance and strength. One must be centered to hold whatever is being created. The spine or the trunk of a tree are symbols of the balance and strength that holds creation. The column can actually be visualized for aligning or creating a connection between Heaven and Earth, between Light and Dark. It creates connection between things.

Pattern #8: Scorpio (Water)  Scorpio is my favorite. It represents the wave, that which creates the energy flow. It is a matrix that distributes or transmits the flow of energy. It penetrates deep. Waves are the means by which Nature transmits the codes. Scorpio is symbolized by the Dragon, as well as waves of all kinds.

Pattern #9: Sagittarius (Fire)  Sagittarius represents nesting: one form within another. In fractals, it is the principle of recursiveness. I like to think of Sagittarius as a diamond. In a way, it is the most allied with transforming codes. The transformation actually takes the energy to another level. It is the return of wisdom and life to the source, but it also is a “stepping up” of the energy. All of the forms have to do with changing energy, but this is a taking or restoring of the energy to a higher level.

Pattern #10: Capricorn (Earth)  Capricorn is the circle or the sphere. Yet it is an Earth element. It is the circle that encases things, like a skull or the skin. It is protective, making a barrier that holds shapes and Creation. It holds the life force in the physical matrix.

Pattern #11: Aquarius (Air)  Aquarius is the grid, any type of grid. It can be triangular, square, cubic, or hexagonal. It is the shape or grid-work or focus to which things attach. It is the interconnecting force that gives us our commonality. For instance, most of us have five fingers, not six. This “five” is a function of nature. It is found throughout space and within all phenomena. All things are created through the grid. All planets, auric fields, and Universes are created and permeated by the grid. There are also consciousness grids.

Pattern #12: Pisces (Water)  Pisces is transformation. There is real chaos in this form. It is unpredictable. It is an ending energy form symbolized by death, diffusion, and decay. Darkness, confusion, and destructiveness are synonymous with this form. You could think of terrorists, their unpredictability, how they can’t really be stopped, bringing confusion and chaos. Pisces brings an end to order when things become too controlled, too fixed.

Julia: How would you use the geometric forms for healing or meditation?

Rowena: It makes sense to think about the triplicities. For instance, for an inflamed condition, you would probably want to use water or air, earth, and then water again. You wouldn’t treat an inflamation with a fire symbol.

For a particular consciousness or situation that you wanted to change, you might use water to transform, maintain, or create a new situation. You could dissolve an unwanted condition by focusing on the Pisces symbol, because it diffuses or transforms old situations by breaking them down.

A patient or person could visualize or draw the symbols. They could put the image on a particular point of the body for healing. Drawing these patterns, or any of the Sacred Geometries, activates the brain, heart, and lungs into a healing space. This practice actually brings life into the body.

Creating designs and patterns is very exciting. The indigenous people wore beautiful garments with incredible color and design. They understood that color and shape could bring about healing, balance, and peace. The shaman wore robes with particular energies brought into being by the ornaments and designs.

Symbols or shapes, like the branch, can be used to bring in energies in your home. For example, if you hvae a garden and you live in a dry environment, you would use the curvilinear wave. This would bring in the water energy to balance the dryness and heat. But if you lived in a swamp, you might want one of the fire signs, such as the star, to balance the dampness.

Julia: I know that you are interested in the education of children. What do you think needs to happen in the teaching of our children?

Rowena: Our children are a new race. So we are essentially the bricklayers of knowledge for a new race.

They cannot learn in the way that children have in the past. They won’t memorize facts without meaning. They need to be introduced to Universal Law so that everything has a meaning, a center, and interconnectedness.

Everything has a resonance or a harmonic system. So I consider harmonics as a parallel to Sacred Geometry. The different tones and colors are ratios. It is all a Universal language. This is the language that the new race of children needs. We can assist by being the anchor points, with a promise of creating a new culture.

Julia: How would this look in practical terms?

Rowena: I envision a series of rooms in which children could learn music, Sacred Geometry, math, and art. I see a computer room where they may watch DVDs. The teachers would not be so much instructors, or givers of information, as they would be people who could help the children move more deeply into whatever interested them.

All consciousness goes through the process of motion from simple to multifaceted, then back to simple again. Consciousness at some point must always become simple, for it has to move both ways. I don’t mean “simple simple.” I mean “complex simple.” A place where complexity becomes integrated.

Everything is coded, nested. We need to teach the children about the nested patterns, like the code of the chromosome, the code of the Universe. When we teach them about the interrelatedness of life, they will not lose their connection with Divine Source. They will stay connected with Cosmic Law.

Julia: What would you like to add in closing?

Rowena: Sacred Geometry is about our connection to Divine Source. If we learn to work with Universal Law and Divine Source, then all of life is filled with abundance. When we live in this way, we are introduced to a multiplicity of worlds and choices.

The old way was about connection to cause-and-effect. You worked at a job because of the effect of earning money, then you retired. But there was nothing to retire to, because you had lost your connection to Divine Source.

We need to leave behind us this addiction to cause-and-effect that narrows both the result and possible incomes.
Security is not the answer. Fitting in is not the point. These addictions lead to seeking pleasure, not joy.

Pleasure is eating chocolates on the sofa because nothing is left in life. It is the hedonistic search for more pleasure, a cycle of pleasure and pain. Joy is linking to the Source. True joy is moving through the pain and linking back to Source to receive true happiness.

Faith is not faith as we have known it. Faith is the decision of staying with the Divine Source for the answer.

Inspiration is the appropriate answer from the Divine Source. We can live our lives in a completely different way, linking to the Divine Source, receiving an abundance that which was not possible before.

I know that this works, because I have lived it.

Working with Light and the World

 

When tragedy strikes the earth through natural disasters or violence, our vibrations lower in response to the occurrence. We may feel sad, discouraged, or tired as result. However, it’s necessary to raise our vibrations into universal love to create a change in the pattern of world events.

Here are a few tips.

  1. Acknowledge the emotion and experience it for a few hours. As we move into light, we become more empathetic and intuitive, and it’s natural to feel the pain of other human beings as well as the trauma of a specific location. (We can’t put our heads in the sand, and it is necessary to sense some of the global feelings.)
  2. Pull back from the feelings after a few hours. Go for a walk. Distract the mind if possible.
  3. Send light in general way such as seeing a pink cloud over the area. Ask the universe to help in healing victims, comforting families, or healing the earth. Do not focus intensely on the area. (As we become more intuitive, the area will radiate information, and this makes it more difficult to send healing or love.)
  4. Heal the self. Rest and meditate on higher vibrations and the feeling of connection. Ask for universal light and to vibrate above the situation.
  5. Limit reading or listening to news about the event. Don’t make political comments about the event. Post and share any positive outcomes, articles about higher vibrations, faith, and love.
  6. When many of us can consistently hold a higher vibration, everything will change. Certainly, we feel the pain of negative events in the world, but we can try to move into the light as often as possible. We can share a positive attitude with others. It’s how we shine our light!
  7. When possible, make donations to help others.
