Mastering the Shift

One of the challenges of the current shift is oscillation, the periodic sensations of high and low. It occurs as the inner self develops, and we move through karma. (Karma can simply mean habits, repetitive patterns, or a negative response – as small as refusing to recognize or speak our personal truth.) Oscillation can cause strong emotions. Although we are steadily moving into a higher place, we continue to experience the old vibrations of the lower self.
We master oscillation over a period of time – not instantly. But we can observe, think about the inner self, and center for a few moments, which is the essence of mastery.
Here are a few 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 low, it’s helpful to know they pass more quickly when we take time to 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.) We can send pink light (love) to the lower self, which feels the emotion.
3)      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.
4)      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.
5)       When we change how we see life, “reality” changes. It takes on the shape and form of our thoughts. If we know we are passing through a wave, it’s unlikely that all of our thoughts are true and real. Simply knowing this is very helpful!
6)      Within the universe, there are thousands of secrets. Study and meditation reveal some of the secrets. We also perceive some of the secrets of the inner self by mastering oscillation, the interplay between the lower and higher self. (In difficult moments, call on angels, teachers, and guides. Someone or something – a book, recorded meditation, or a post on FB – will always help.)

Another Shift in the Weather

 

 

As a reminder, we have until February 5 to move forward on dreams and desires of the heart. Please take a small step as the planets support outer effort, and the universe will give direction at a later date.

The first quarter moon chart is challenging. Many planets are placed in earth and fire along with strong influences from Uranus (sudden change) and Saturn (karma.)—and there are few planets in air (clear thought.) Think of a volcano!  Fortunately, Sun is placed (life) in Aquarius, an air sign denoting the New Age, and Moon (emotions) sits in Taurus, a practical, grounding earth sign. These two placements can bring inspired answers accompanied by practical insights.

Astrologer Carl Boudreau pointed out that part of the current challenge involves tuning into the North Node, which indicates our spiritual quest–and is currently placed in Virgo. With North Node placed in Virgo, our attention should be placed on order, new methodology in our work, and inner healing—as well as hearing the tuning of the Cosmos. The temptation lies in revisiting tried and “true” methods from the past, represented by South Node in Pisces, the ruler of the past age. It’s important to find new ways of moving through life, new methods of self-expression in work, and techniques that can heal the schism between the inner and outer self.

Sun trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), indicating New Age thoughts of balance, love, and positive thought can link us with the more benevolent forces of the universes. (The New Age is ruled by Aquarius, favoring innovative solutions that relate to the “whole” of humanity in a balanced sense.)

Mercury (thought, communication) sits in Capricorn, continuing its conjunction with Pluto (underworld, resources, transmutation), hinting at the need to rethink financial and natural resources. Additionally, Mercury squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion, growth) and Uranus (awakening), hinting at the importance of using resources in a balanced and positive way. (We may need to weigh the value of intrinsic beauty and sacred ground with the current quest for economical growth. (There are new forms of energy, which work and need to come into being—and it’s important to tap into the universal law of abundance on a practical level.)

Venus

Venus (feminine, art, beauty) remains exalted in Pisces, making it possible to unite from a place of love. Venus sits in conjunction to Mars (masculine, assertion), and she brings balance to the male/female energies of the inner/outer world. Venus squares (tension) Saturn, which can make life seem and feel a bit dark, but it also gives an excellent sense of structure to artistic endeavors. On the healing side of the equation, Venus conjuncts Chiron, the wounded healer, indicating the possibility of finding a deeper level of healing through the auspices of love.

Mars (masculine, assertion) moves into Aries, its fiery native sign, igniting action and forward motion. Mars squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma), meaning it’s wise to give a pause to desires and the need to take action by considering its implications in the larger picture. (How will long-range goals affect personal/planetary karma? Does the desire bring “good” to all?)

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) opposes Uranus, the ruler of awakening, change, and the quantum field. Essentially, it brings opposing sets of thoughts and feelings. Uranus encourages embracing change and possibly radical action. And Jupiter asks for balance and beauty without altering the status quo. As with most conflicts, the answer lies somewhere in the middle of the debate. It takes time to align with the right answer as well as time to bring it into being. (Observe thoughts from a neural place.)

Jupiter also squares Pluto (underground, hidden world), hinting at the need to see the underworld, the underlying truths beneath our social/economic structure to create growth, which brings harmony and peace. Saturn (limitation, karma, time) trines Uranus, which gives an incredible opportunity to mitigate karma and move into the new world.

Uranus and Pluto are tightly entwined in the square (3 degree orb) that has brought much chaos into the world. As we move into the last year of the square, there is a great initiative to shape chaos into a creative, balanced form for the good of “All”.

7 Easy Ways to Move Through The Shift

While many people remain unaware of the shift, awakened individuals experience heightened intuition and emotion, which are qualities of the inner self. Along with this quickening, there is a strong desire for peace and harmony.

Here are a few tips to make navigation a bit easier.

  1. Try working from the inner self. Stop every few hours and ask for the presence of the inner self. (On a practical level, we can ask for information about the most essential aspects of the day. This can include practical, physical steps. While it may seem like a longer list, following the guidance of the inner self brings a gentle, sustaining flow.)
  2. Focus on the heart space. Send love to the self and others. Send love to problems and happy situations. Unconditional love raises everything into a higher frequency and can bring unexpected solutions.
  3. Be patient. It takes time to learn how to use intuition accurately. It takes energy to stay balanced in the New Age. And it requires courage to remain consistently optimistic while holding a vision of a better life and world.
  4. Take time to rest and nurture the self. The energy oscillates continually, and it’s important to take small breaks throughout the day. When the body rests, it operates more smoothly, and we feel less of the currents of mass consciousness and interruptions in the magnetic field. (When we’re tired, it’s helpful to focus on how it feels when we are energized and aligned.)
  5. Center often and focus on the inner self. From this place, see solutions. Imagine happier outcomes and focus on the positive. (This practice raises our vibrations.)
  6. Enjoy nature. Take walks or sit in the sun. Feel the motion of the physical world and notice the beauty. Become full of beauty and light.
  7. Spend a few moments each day and meditate on how peace and harmony feel. Imagine waves of peace, balance, and harmony coming into the inner self. (Refrain from speaking negatively about events or people in the outer world when possible. Sharing truth is fine, but try for a neutral position.)

Trends of 2017

While it’s possible to “pick” up on great deal in the outer and invisible world, predictions and explanations tend to become misleading because they are amplified/diminished by our beliefs. Instead of  moving into the possibilities and probabilities of the year, it’s simpler to look at energetic trends.

The presentation of trends allows the opportunity to best direct our energy for personal growth. (Feel free to comment and share thoughts on this post.)

  1. Patience. Many have felt the scope of expansion offered by awakening. We know the world can change and move in a positive direction. We understand the probability of emergent new forms of energy, useful in healing, cleaning the environment, and free energy for cars, electricity, etc. We are working with patience while waiting for world change. We visualize, learn to regroup and alter the pattern of our words—and create room for the decision to move into awakening or stay in the same place.
  2. Transition. Part of the big transition involves letting go of who we think are while evolving into our “true” identity. This includes memories, lineage, personal preferences, and how we “think” we operate in life. It involves surrendering our “outer” identity as we become more of the inner self. It can be as simple as giving up toxic (lower) energy people to completely rebuilding our lives. (We’ll see change in the structure of the outer world as well.)
  3. A linear division. The line of division between light/dark and awake/sleeping is becoming more apparent. At this point, the delineation is becoming more apparent as the veil of illusion continues to thin. (Many revelations will be presented on a global and personal level. Expect people to reveal themselves.) For those who are awake, powers of discernment will increase.
  4. Increased light and personal power. As the veil thins, we’ll become more aware of how our personal and global connections affect the world. Our intentions, thoughts, and emotions will become more powerful. (Initially, it will be a two-edged sword because we will discover both negative and positive directives from the self and the world at large.)
  5. Increased amplification and acceleration. As we awaken, increased intuition will amplify our feelings and thoughts, Time will seem to move more quickly unless we actively slow it down through interaction with nature and meditation. The “waves” of energy surrounding the earth move much quickly, and they can affect our consciousness. (The term “waves” extends to mass consciousness, the people in our lives, and higher collective consciousness. Grounding and balance help a great deal with this.)
  6. More understanding of love. In the past, love meant intense passion, religious fervor, and a directive to move into love and light regardless of the circumstances. This view fostered intense (not always positive) relationships, a martyred vision of religion, and imbalance. “Real” universal love holds a much higher vibration. It illustrates the truth with compassion. It demands boundaries, truth, balance, and expansion. Universal love offers the opportunity to vibrate above lower energies—and to stay in the heart space.
  7. Perception of Energy. Big changes will occur in the perception of energy for those who are awake. Obviously, everything is energy, but learning how to apply, use, and align with energy correctly is an entirely different task. It’s super important to let go of people, things, and events that lower our energy and focus on the development of energy and positivity. (In many ways, it’s like a child outgrowing their clothes. Our lives may simply not fit in the same way.)
  8. New energies for those who are open. The new energies will likely provide tools for healing, greater understanding and clearing of past lives (and their influence), the ability to use intention as a greater directive for move thought life, and more profound understanding of the self—and cosmic law.
  9. Increased ability to manifest. Manifestation will become easier as the dark/light forces separate, and we move out of the old earth paradigm. For those in the light, it will involve manifesting aspects of the soul, hidden talents, and aspects of life, which are hidden in the heart.
  10. Increased connection. We will become more connected through electronics, spiritual energy, and likes/dislikes. It actually offers the opportunity to discover our personal alignment and how it affects our energy. On a higher level, the spiritual community may learn a great deal about group manifestation. (Much of the world appears as it does because of our thoughts. Awakened individuals will become aware of the importance of their thoughts and dreams.)

A Time to Transition

newsletter_colorswirl

 

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

Here are a few tips.

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

Paradigm Shift: Higher Consciousness in a Changing World

news_mandala

 

The world is changing. The energy is currently low, and it can feel difficult to lift into higher consciousness when it’s a bit murky around us. It’s helpful to recall that we’re passing through a paradigm shift while moving into the Aquarian Age. Energy works differently, and the rules constantly change.

Below are a few of my observations.

  1. In the Piscean Age, spiritual love involved giving away all of the self—as a sacrifice—to help others. It was Divine, and the universe immediately replenished our energy. In the Aquarian Age, it’s important to fill our own cup before transmitting energy and/or love to others. When we are in a place of “pure” love, it’s easily sent. (It’s helpful to think of it as “my cup runneth over.” When we’re filled with light and love, we can share with others.)
  2. The Aquarian Age is increasing our intuitive ability on a group (and astral) level. We feel the thoughts and emotions of other people in crowded places. We may hear others’ thoughts and think they are our own. It’s very important to separate from this and learn which energies are own. (It takes strength to hold tightly to our emotions, thoughts, and dreams without being influenced by others, but it does teach about finding the right people in our lives.)
  3. The rules of energy work alter on a regular basis. Old techniques may work perfectly one day and fail on the next. It’s because the energy alternates on a regular basis. The solution lies in trying several techniques and staying disciplined with meditation and spiritual work. (Our light level, the planet’s light level, and other factors can affect our work, but remaining consistent with work relating to the heart will eventually provide the answer.)
  4. Loving and taking care of the self is important work. When we put self-care and spiritual work first, life often changes. When we love ourselves, we love life. When we love life, everything changes and takes on the spin of a higher motion.
  5. One of the most helpful actions is learning to recognize love and light in others. If we can feel, sense, or see light, it helps a great deal. If we base our relationships on a person’s ability to love, it opens the way for positive work.

Having More Energy in a Low Energy Time

  1. An universal connection gives more energy than anything else on this planet. The universe supports the planet with love and love, and the inner self is the point of connection. (All answers come from the inner self.)
  2. Visualize wonderful events in life. (It’s not selfish.) When we visualize wonderful things, we actually broadcast them out for others. When we create them, we create a path for others to follow.
  3. Send love as often as possible. It helps everyone and everything. When we send light, it’s important NOT to have outcome but to simply send light (pink light=love.)
  4. Exercise outdoors. Fresh air, plants, and nature refresh the spirit and open our eyes to endless beauty. We can open to the wonders of the planet and listen to the wind, the trees, and watch the clouds as they move through the sky.
  5. We can see ourselves as having more energy and moving easily through life. There’s a tendency to repeat the energy of the day on the following day unless we interrupt its flow with a positive visualization. Why not see tomorrow as an incredible, magnificent day?

Creating More Blessings

news_mandala

 

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

Here are a few tips:

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

10 Reasons to Send Light

 

news_mandala

  1. When we send light to a situation or worry, we no longer think about it. We must focus on light as well as the sensation of sending it. In general, light holds a higher frequency than a problem, so the sensation of the light lifts us into a higher place. (We also refrain from sending negativity to a negative situation, which expands it.) Over time, we learn the habit of switching the focus of the mind from a lower to a higher vibration.
  2. Light is love. It leads to unity, connection, and oneness. It’s said we’re at the end of Kali Yuga, the darkest time on the Earth, and it will be followed by a great Golden Age. The Golden Age will likely appear when we learn to join together and create through a place of love and light.
  3. Choosing light means the preference of a higher frequency. It drives away lower thoughts and emotions; it nurtures compassion. It aligns us with others who feel the same light, and it mitigates karma—the repetition of negative thoughts and feelings.
  4. Particles of matter respond to light. It brings healing, growth, and insight. (Light is the fabric that underlies particles of matter; it is the invisible force, which inhabits every form of life.)
  5. Light is one of the highest frequencies on the planet. Higher frequencies are uplifting, invigorating, and healing. Light holds the opposite frequency of fear, pain, anger, and doubt.
  6. Light is the only thing that leads out of the dark wilderness of difficulties. Life may not change immediately, but our attitude alters. Through light, we find strength to overcome obstacles.
  7. Sending light to the self clears karma, stills the mind, and opens the heart to love, which allows true universal communion.
  8. Repeated meditation on light leads to truth about the self. It may not be the truth that we want to see, but it is freeing—and it takes us to new fields of opportunity and exploration. (Light finds solutions where there are none.) It also brings truth about other people, relationships, and the unseen world. When we understand why and how events take place, we have many more alternatives–or the courage to take action–at least.
  9. Light awakens our gifts, leading to the expression of our talents. It gives courage to step into our calling and power of expression.
  10. For those who truly want change, there is no alternative. Each time we step into the light, we illuminate the world with a higher vibration. (It doesn’t mean that we don’t move back and forth as we master our thoughts and feelings. It involves learning how to return to light and love, the natural state of our inner being.)
