Jupiter in Scorpio: The Big Reveal

Image by Josephine Wall

 

Jupiter moved into Scorpio on October 10. As the largest planet in galaxy, we feel the pull of the Jupiter’s power as the opportunity to enlarge, improve and benefit in life. As the largest planet in the galaxy, we’ll feel its pull and power to enlarge, improve and benefit through the specific sign of its placement. Scorpio rules birth, sex, death—or states of transformation.

Scorpio is an intense water sign, mysterious and resourceful. Its strength is willpower and decisiveness, but it doesn’t mind walking on the dark side of life. Scorpio tends to have laser-like vision and sees objects in the dark or on the earth that others miss. In this way, it often reveals truths that otherwise would be hidden.

Jupiter in Scorpio will reveal truths hidden the in subconscious, shadowy aspects of life, and secrets in outer world. Scorpio also rules birth, sex, and death, and regeneration.(The Weinstein sex scandal is a perfect example. It appeared in the news as Jupiter moved into Scorpio, and it involves sex, money, and power. )  Jupiter tends to bring blessings, and the combination of Jupiter and Scorpio lifted a dark event into the light for clearing and change.

The sign of Scorpio is represented by the scorpion, eagle, and phoenix. The three creatures symbolize the progression of Scorpio through the scorpion that lives close to the earth and stings (hurts) anything that threatens. The eagle soars above the earth as a powerful predator; it has powerful vision but remains a hunter. Burned to ashes through emotional intensity, the phoenix rises through the ashes, achieving regeneration through spiritual fire.

Influences and Benefits:

  • Scorpio’s decisive ability comes from its power to sense and recognize truth on an intuitive level. Jupiter will expand its power to convey courage and strength. Courage and decisiveness are necessary to move through fear and obstacles on the quest of the soul. (The past two years in Libra focused on seeing both sides of the picture and weighing them carefully.)
  • Scorpio rules the void, the “between” states of birth, sex, and death. It can heighten our ability to move into shamanic or enlightened states where the spiritual world dictates the motion of mind, spirit, and body—and reveals the path of the soul. (Hopefully, we’ll return to a more natural, wholesome view of sex. Understand that the “dead” are with us—simply in another world.)
  • Spiritual knowledge is heightened by asking questions and solving mysteries. Think of the Zen koan, which asks, “What was your face before you were born?” Scorpio is masterful at solving mysteries associated with the occult, and Jupiter will help us with our journey.
  • As part of the Plutonian influence, Jupiter in Scorpio reveals what’s hidden–or we don’t want to see. (I’m not entirely sure if this is good or bad.) At any rate, we have to know the truth to develop spiritually. The big idea behind it lies in developing our ability to see the ugliness and difficulty in life while remaining true to the light. If we remain true to the light and our inner vision, we will go through a transformation, which alters our material reality as well as the self.
  • Transformation comes from Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, which rules the underworld. In most mythical systems, it’s necessary to visit the underground to achieve hero status and/or the power to wield extraordinary powers. We’ll travel there during Jupiter’s 13 month sojourn.

It’s a challenging but enlightening combination of energies with Jupiter in Scorpio. Our emotions become stronger, and our passions will become more intense with a need to moderate. But Scorpio can be courageous. It gives resources to delve into the dark and resolve issues on many levels including transforming blocks to material wealth, moving through past obstacles, and understanding what is hidden within us along with the power to change it.

Full Moon Forecast

 

Full moons bring intensity, passion, and fruition to dreams. Everything heightens before waning and moving into a new cycle. The full moon appears on October 5,  featuring Sun (life) and Mercury (thought, communication) in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus.  Libra rules beauty, balance, relationships, judgement, and the mind. Think of butterflies, dragonflies, and soft clouds—or the stillness of the mind that comes with inner presence. Think of a gentle breeze moving through bright leaves and the clear, peaceful feeling of an autumn afternoon.

Libra also rules the type of higher love that comes from the enlightened mind and an open heart. When Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) are conjunct (close), it heightens our ability to still the mind and receive higher communications and impulses. It also increases our ability to perceive beauty, harmony, and balance. (It’s important to align our consciousness with these energies as we move through the week.)

Moon in Aries stirs the pot, dredging up passion, impulses, and the desire for a new quest. The moon opposes the energies of the Sun and Mercury, so the best use of these energies is feeling passionate about the spaciousness of the mind when it is connected to the Divine.

The biggest challenge in the chart lies with the T-square with Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought), and Pluto. It pertains to how we experience and react to our own darkness and the underworld. Pluto reveals the truth about life, and it’s often not pretty. But part of seeing the truth and light involves recognizing the aspects of life (and the planet) that don’t work.

Pluto direct can feel like the river Styx. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the long river. When we see the truth and act properly on it, we become powerful. This is Pluto’s lesson.

A T-square can cause tension and irritability. In this case, Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) square Pluto, creating tension between our desire to create harmony and the aspects of life that appear before us. (Obviously, it happened this week.) Moon square Pluto (subconscious, transformation) arouses rapid, actions and emotions, which can occur with little thought. (Venus and Mars in  trine Pluto, which may help us in finding practical methods of transmuting energies through love and light.)

The challenge involves our encounter with aspects of the personal subconscious and global consciousness. The challenge is to remain aligned with a clear mind while focusing on a positive world view. (Of course, we will feel discordant emotions, but we can try to rise above them.)  It’s important to focus on the beautiful feelings and vision bestowed by Sun and Mercury in Libra. We have to quiet the mind and return to a higher vision, which is a form of cosmic awakening.

Additional Influential Aspects

Venus (feminine, beauty, physical possessions) and Mars (male, action) are placed in Virgo, the sign of order, healing, and physical work. In conjunct (close) position, there is a pleasant coherence between the male/female aspects of the self. This includes work/rest and active/passive phases of life, which can create a lovely balance.

Work and Spirituality

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (assertion, male) square Saturn in Sagittarius (karma, time, devotion and spirituality.) The square creates tension between our desire to work and our devotion to spiritual work. It’s helpful to take breaks for peaceful meditation between efforts with focused work. (It’s important not to compartmentalize, but to find balance while holding the open state of mind conferred by Sun in beautiful Libra.)

Balance and Change

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries (sudden change, awakening). Our desire for harmony and clarity (Jupiter) conflicts with Uranus’ energies. Uranus elicits strong reactions, moving energy quickly from high to low (like a roller coaster), brings change, and causes odd events.

With oppositions, we tend to feel both energies in separate intervals. We may want balance, contentment and harmony, which is followed by a desire for sudden change. These energies can feel disruptive, but it is possible to alter the placement of our consciousness into a peaceful place by an act of will. Jupiter also trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma, time), which is helpful in creating a positive blend of the old and new.

Dreams and Illusion

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (male, action) oppose Neptune, the bringer of dreams, illusion, and mysticism. Venus and Mars in Virgo ask us to focus on the tasks at hand and fulfill practical matters. Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces encourages dreams and a mystical state of being. While traveling between these two planetary energies, it’s possible to lose sight of larger dreams and aspirations when focused on practicality and/or confuse reality and illusion. Sun, Moon, and Mercury are sextile Neptune, which brings a more positive energy to the mix; their position can help in finding clarity with this task.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s Work

Sun sits on Libra 13, “Children Blowing Soap Bubbles”. The symbol illustrates the beauty of air, the possibility of floating through life by becoming present and aware in the moment. Libra is an air sign, and it rules thoughts. When the mind is clear, “air” supports us with a lovely motion, carrying our thoughts to the heavens to take on shape and form.

Moon is placed on Aries 13, “A Bomb Which Failed to Explode Is Now Safely Hidden from Discovery.” This symbol has appeared often in the past few months. (It’s interesting to note how a WWII bomb was discovered and defused in Germany during this period.) It could refer to Pluto’s current (direct) position and the need to handle personal issues, which are potentially explosive. The symbol can refer to global issues as well. For the moment, we have time to review, change the past, and create a safer future (without potential harm).

Mercury is on Libra 11, “A Professor Peering over His Glasses at His Students.” Again, it’s a repetitive symbol. The best teachers share information on an intuitive, intellectual, and emotional level. Glasses can refer to not seeing well or seeing details more sharply.

We learn from the nature and the response of the physical world. Clear perception is necessary to read the signs. The symbol also refers to the need for teachers to study and grow on an intellectual and metaphysical level while teaching others.

Venus and Mars on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Lands”. Mars and Venus refer to male and female energy, and they give harmony when placed on the same degree in the same sign. The symbol is apropos for this time of higher vibration and the awakened movement, particularly as we move through life in our cars.

The symbol hints at a new and better way of living and new methods of experiencing life. Likely, it is one of higher consciousness. They work best!

Jupiter sits on Libra 30, “Three Mounds of Knowledge on a Philosopher’s Head. This is the last degree of Jupiter and marks the end of learning lessons from Libra. The symbol refers to phrenology, the study of the bumps and shapes of the head. It also refers to the interpretation of signs. We know the look of inner beauty when reflected in the face and body. We know the feeling of the flow and how life changes when we step into it. When the wind blows from a different direction, it tells about the weather.

If we pay attention to small signs and physical indications of the spiritual presence in the physical, we can learn about our responses to the inner world. By recognizing and acting on inner impulses, we gain greater access to the spiritual world.

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.)

Full Moon Forecast: Embracing Change

 

After a week of stormy skies, the moon appeared, almost full, and luminous—changing the night sky into a beautiful shade of deep blue. Under these soft skies, the full Moon appears on Sept. 6, and Mercury (at last) moves direct, offering clarity of thought and enhanced communications. Only three planets are in retrograde, extending an opportunity to move forward with plans and development of talents and gifts.

The prevalence of fire continues in this chart. Fortunately, Sun (outer life) and Mars (action) are placed in Virgo, an earth sign. Earth offers grounding, vitality, and connection with nature, and Virgo can represent a mystical priestess attuned to the sublime knowledge—or the human quest for perfection, order, and detail. Either way, earth signs open us to the sensuality of our physicality and the beauty of nature.

The Full Moon rises in Pisces, a water sign. Full Moons bring fruition, rain, and germination, so emphasis on water (flooding, fertility, the feminine, emotions) continues.The Moon (inner self, emotions) conjuncts (close to) Neptune, the ruler of seas, the astral world, and illusion/mysticism. The placement brings a mystical, intuitive element to the chart. With  the Moon/Neptune conjunction, dreams/delusion and truth/illusion are part of the influence. It’s beautiful, dreamy, and confusing.

Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces square Saturn (time, karma), which may result in sensations of loneliness and/or pensiveness. Sun opposes Neptune (mysticism, idealism), making it difficult to separate illusion and truth. On the positive, Sun trines Pluto (underworld, transmutation), and it can bring regeneration, strength, and the power to overcome obstacles such as those listed above.

Mercury is now direct. Placed in Virgo, it forms a Grand Trine with Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening/sudden change.) On another level, it can represent applying lessons from the past with awareness (awakening) to create a new future—or using symbols of the past to create sudden upsets and deter awakening. It’s all about where we put our thoughts. (Mercury and Mars (action) are conjunct (close), so our thoughts are likely to incur action and/or a material result.)

 

Venus

Venus is warm and fiery in Leo, which rules the heart. This placement benefits relationships and monetary matters. Venus (love, material goods, relationships) trines Saturn (lessons, karma), which can give a clear view and good judgement about partnerships and relationships. It’s a stabilizing aspect and increases energy for dealing with trying aspects of relationships.

Mars (action, masculine) is in Virgo, a calmer placement than Leo, which was experienced in recent weeks. Mars forms a lovely Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus. Again, the planetary energies focus on lessons of the past and the creation of the new world. (Contrast and compare Charlottesville and Houston.) These energies emphasize the importance of acting to share our inner truth, encourage others and send positive messages.

Changing Energies

Jupiter (good fortune) opposes Uranus.  (Jupiter expands, and Uranus seeks change.) In this opposition, Jupiter enlarges our need for a new realty while Uranus brings electrical bolts of energy. The opposition is apparent in the outer world with flooding, fire, and earthquakes. It involves social change, alterations in the workings of relationships, and revolution. Additionally, Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto (underworld), which concerns the earth’s resources. It is about finding and creating justice with monetary systems as well as protecting the earth.

Almost every planet in the chart aspects Saturn, indicating the importance of revisiting the past to identify important values and discard worn-out principles. For example, we’re weeding away structures from the Piscean Age while hopefully mastering unconditional, mystical love with healthy boundaries. Saturn also teaches the importance of continued effort and devotion, which activates the power of the higher collective mind.

Uranus, the electrical planet of awakening and sudden change, trines Mercury, Mars, Venus, and North Node. While the energy is positive, it’s also amplified by the trines, which means manifestation takes place more quickly than usual. Thought (Mercury), love (Venus), and Mars (action) compose part of the dynamic, so stay centered as much as possible. Uranus’ conjunction with North Node in Leo (spiritual direction) indicates the value of following the heart and releasing desires of the ego.

Sun (life) and Saturn (time, karma) square Neptune (illusion, mysticism), diluting and confounding our ability to read life accurately. Illusion and truth are intertwined in these squares, and it’s not unusual to feel confused or misled. But it will pass. (It’s helpful to ask for a clear mind and the presence of truth.)

The chart represents many aspects of global life including intense emotion (Moon/Neptune), increased ability to manifest through thought and action (Grand Trines with Mercury/Mars), balancing the past and future (aspects with Saturn/Uranus), and confusion–which is part of planetary change. It is possible to derive both power and insights at the time of Full Moon, but it’s also necessary to continue the simple tasks of meditation, centering, and focusing on the heart.

Tips:

  1. The outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, are aspected in this chart, meaning the energies refer to awakening and change in the outer, global world as well as within the self.
  2. Sun and Moon square Saturn, which can cause feelings of sadness or disappointment about the self, success, or the state of the world. It will pass in a few days. Keep the faith.
  3. Grand Trines with Mercury and Mars tend to put our thoughts and actions into physical form more quickly than usual. Take time to focus on inner desires and their outcome. Review before taking action.
  4. Aspects with Neptune can cause difficultly in discerning truth and illusion. Life can feel confusing and/or inspiring, depending on the placement of consciousness.
  5. True safety comes from aligning with the inner self and the universe. Many good “things” are on the way. Remain patient.

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.
