Message from the Wolves: Time to Awaken

 

We live in the mountains, the forest, and hidden places where it is pristine and forgotten by man–where trees dance, and the original songs of the world can be heard. Tonight, as the moon grows full, we share some of those songs with you.

Once, you were perfect. Your thoughts and emotions aligned with the Divine. All that you saw or felt in your mind appeared in a harmonious way in your physical reality. (That’s part of the purpose of the earth. It is place for manifesting ideas, dreams, and desires, so you can delight in the beauty and create even more.)

A wild beauty appears on earth on the nights of the full and new moons. The secret rhythms of the world are released for a few moments and are carried by the whales, dolphins, coyotes, and wolves through sonar, which includes sounds too high and low for you to hear. Nevertheless, they play throughout the planet and can be felt.

The earth loved the beauty of your creations, and the sea sang songs to you. Everything rejoiced in the beauty of what you created. Over time, you moved out of harmony, and now it is time to return and create again.

The beautiful dreams of life from the beginning are still within you. Begin by finding the desires put in your heart by the universe. Know they are powerful and special—and part of your way of finding the path to divine. By following your desires, you move through limitations and open your heart to greater expectations.

You will know when your dream is real because you will feel its light in your soul. A flowing sense of happiness will move through you—along with the possibility of its realization. A true dream comes from your soul, and you explore your soul through the process of manifestation. It is how you learn to align yourself with the laws of nature and the universe. Yes, it involves repetition because everything in Nature tends to repeat. (Think of the blooms of flowers, the seasons, and the appearance of the moon. It appears, changes, and reappears. This is one of the important cycles of earth.)

Many of you will say you have had a dream, and it didn’t come into fruition. Perhaps, you did not stay with your dream or find the meditative magic, which accompanies the work. Wolves often sit in circles and focus on their dreams for hours—even days or months. At this point on your timeline, it takes fierce concentration and desire to change the fabric of life into another form.

Most people do not long for a dream deeply enough to create it, so they live with a sense of dissatisfaction—a lack of fulfillment. For those who follow the process, they receive light, gifts, and the practice of overcoming limitations. (There are many limitations on your planet along with lower vibrations, which can require a great effort to overcome. But we ask, what are you doing with your life and your time? Do you not have time to entertain the dreams and beauty of your soul?)

Keep in mind that everything on your planet vibrates at a specific rate. When your mind, emotions, and body vibrate at a higher rate, matter itself aligns with your vibration. And all dreams and desires vibrate at a higher frequency than your experience of the current reality.

The attainment of higher vibrations is part of the shift on earth. Many of you will learn how to manifest—not simply have or want or accumulate—but create from your soul. As you grasp the power and techniques of this potential, the entire frequency of the planet will increase. (It is part of the change that many of you came here to create.)

Here are some aspects of manifestation that may help you.

  • When you are dissatisfied with an aspect of life, take the opportunity to see it differently. It may not work out as you planned, but something different will happen. Don’t hide emotions. Express them and create your life in a different way.
  • It’s okay when your manifestation works out differently from your plan. The twists and turns teach about the universe’s preferences. From this, you learn about the universe’s desires for you.
  • Ask often if you desire for the highest and best good of all. Will the vibration of your new knowledge and life help others as well as yourself? As you pursue your dream, what changes are needed within you? Are you learning to love life and yourself more?
  • Big dreams and changes require work. Are you willing to give time and energy to them? Are you willing to meditate on them with all of your heart?
  • Nature plays a large part in manifestation. When you meditate outdoors, nature corrects and replicates your vision. Every part of nature helps in creating it in the physical world.

Nature: Time of a Feminine Age

Image by Josephine Walls

According to the indigenous grandmothers, we are moving into a different time of new beginnings when everything will work in a new way. Feminine energy will preside in this new era, replacing many aspects of the masculine, which required constant action and “push” in the physical world. It emphasizes “feeling” the way into right action as opposed to the old mantra of “just do it”.
Indigenous cultures were based on feminine principles and involved connection with the earth. (Simple exercises such as meditating while focusing on a landscape or tree were used to bring in a desire.) There is a strong focus on sensation and emotion, including the necessity of “knowing” if a step resonated with the heart, particularly when taking an action.
I learned about this method from wolves. They often spent an entire day focusing on a desire until it took form, or an opportunity occurred. (It works well for humans, too.) The earth supports putting thoughts in creative form. It’s an ancient, beautiful way of being, which is likely genetically encoded. It’s a state of oneness with the earth and sky. Beyond this, it’s a slower way of being that involves time spent looking at trees and skies while learning to love what is within us—or as the Native Americans call it, “walking like a living prayer.”
Part of the motion into the feminine comes from the placement of 7 of the 10 planets (astrology includes the moon) are placed in earth and water signs, which are feminine. Stillness, connection with nature, and meditative states are associated with indigenous cultures. By lifting our minds and emotions to a specific frequency, we heighten the likelihood of manifesting a desire. The desired result is harmonious and uplifting.
Personal Lessons from Nature the Current Time
1) I don’t need to travel into the world — or to do as much as I thought.  (I’m also happier this way, and I have more time for walks and higher thoughts.)
2) I can buy most of what I need on the internet. Without driving or flying, we help the earth.  (Staying home made a huge difference in the natural world in only a few weeks.)
3) The natural world is slower and more beautiful than I remembered (before the shut-down.)
4) I can’t see my friends or family, but I can send love and light to them every day. It’s a wonderful practice that I plan to continue.
5) Without diversions, I am much happier and focused. Nature is showing us a new way of life.
Here are a few, simple ways of tapping into the feminine.
1) Think of the generous aspects of nature and the universe. See the universal energies as a force that wants to fulfill your desires. Reflect on the good parts of your life and see more pouring into your life.
2) Sit by a tree. Focus on sending out thoughts about your happiness, how you could feel better in the present moment, and a better future. Ask the tree to extend the feelings into the future.  (Trees also help with intuitive communication with loved ones and friends.)
3) Meditate outdoors. Feel the sunlight moving through you like universal light. Hold a visual and ask nature to correct it. While in this process, notice the beauty and sounds in the world. They help with harmony and balance.
4) Go for a walk. Notice how your thoughts and feelings change with the landscape. Notice the colors and shapes that are uplifting for you.
5)  Thank the earth for her goodness and express gratitude for the physical body. Notice how your body works and functions well. Take joy in it.

7 Reasons to Manifest More

 

 

 

Manifestation is a way of focusing the mind and emotions on a visual while connecting with the universe to realize a desired result. It must come from the heart to bring true satisfaction and relief from a lower condition. It must vibrate above fears and old projections about life–and it must take you into new realizations of perceiving life. Otherwise, you’re merely recreating old experiences and patterns, which eventually bring dissatisfaction. (True manifestation is the creation of new experiences and ideas that bring insight into the soul.)

  1. Positive manifestations begin with the heart and its desire. The heart chakra receives and distributes unconditional, universal love. In this space, you begin to find the feeling of the desirable life, which expands through visuals and aligned thoughts. The desire becomes the north star, the compass point of consciousness that leads to greater realization.
  2. Every visualization develops through intuition and meditation. It’s how you hear the universe and the language of the heart. By following intuition, you receive a positive feeling that is different from habitual emotions–and eventually leads to new, better results.
  3. The practice of manifestation leads away from comfortable routines that limit life; it leads to new opportunities, expressions of life, and a creative outlook. By holding the visualization, you tell the universe that you want a different, higher frequency, and the universe whispers directions through the heart. By learning to hear the universe through the heart, you open to colors, sounds, feelings, and a new way of thinking.
  4. With every manifestation, there is a part of self that resists the new “way”. By learning about this part of the self–and discovering its beliefs, fears, and lower vibrations–you learn how to create a new way of believing in yourself and the universe, a new way of speaking to yourself, and a method of finding and acting on your inner power. (It’s so much more fun than staying the same!)
  5. Many desires take practice and work to manifest. You may manifest part of your dream but experience parts of it as uncomfortable and/or out of alignment. This is actually wonderful because you are learning to discern between the desires of the inner self and who you think that you are. When you take action and work on a dream, you find what parts of you are in alignment with your dream and which parts of you need work and/or refinement. It’s a journey into self-discovery.
  6. The practice, work, and reprogramming lead to the discovery of the inner self, the part of you who always loves you and knows the way to higher frequencies and better solutions. In the beginning, the actual manifestation in physical form is the reward. Eventually, the discovery of the true self becomes a beautiful and meaningful journey. You learn who you truly are.
  7. All of the gifts of the universe (in material and spiritual form) lead to the recognition of the goodness of the universe. When you learn to manifest a particular gift, you can replicate it for others, teach and share the process, or simply share the light. It’s impossible to manifest positively without a higher vibration. Your work and efforts shine through, bringing a higher vibration to those around you.

 

A Few Tips

  1. See the opposite of a difficult situation. Visualize and feel harmony, possible solutions, and divert your attention from the problem.
  2. You can recall memories of happier times, physical vitality, and mental focus to change your feelings and outlook on life.
  3. Focus on the beauty of nature, the flow of life, and love of others to move into gratitude, which attracts an array of positive vibrations.
  4. When possible, see positive outcomes for others. Send pink light (love) to yourself and others. It raises your vibration.
  5. Remember that the universe loves and supports you. Make time to tap into this larger and more wonderful world.

Words from the Wolves About Manifestation

We come from the mountains, the deep woods, and the hidden, holy places to convey our message to you. Today, we talk about manifestation, which is your ability to create in the physical form.  It is the expression of the desires in your heart that were put there by the universe.

The desires are not random; they relate to the beauty of your being, the true sound of your voice, and your hidden gifts. Like many things, it is something that you must commit to.

We commit to seeing a better, happier life with harmony between humans and animals—and all of the natural world. We know you have incredible abilities to move the planet through your love and light. But this begins with expression of desire in your own physical world, which expands outwardly and touches all beings in your sphere.

Every desire is composed of a frequency. Abundance, health, success are all particular frequencies. Your personal frequency in these areas can differ slightly – as can your experiences -but it is basically the same for everyone.

If you hit the frequency, you begin to create it. You must repeat it again and again for the earth’s vibrations (and the people upon it) are relatively dense at this time. You must want the desire with all of your heart. It must be beneficial, creative, and expansive.

Any desire to manifest in a higher way is based on reaching a higher frequency, vibrating with it, and bringing it into form through repetition and focus. It is part of how you grow in the physical and spiritual world. Every time you overcome limitations and obstacles in life, your consciousness expands.

Your growth in consciousness is relayed to others who are working on the same desire. As more people reach it, the message is conveyed through intuition. This opens a pathway for creation in the physical world through higher vibrations.

Part of the difficulty lies in the fact that people have forgotten their abilities of manifestation. For those of you who are creating, you are acting as pioneer in the frontier of spirituality. Every small thing that you create brings the world closer to realization of this gift.

A Few Techniques

  1. You can begin with desire, want, or need. You should have a very strong feeling about your desire—and you must be willing to work for it.
  2. You must see and feel your desire as though it has already occurred. It is not “just” a visual. It is like stepping into a forest or a room and experiencing all that is there. Notice the details and memorize them. Stay open to changes, too.
  3. Use the power of nature to illuminate and activate your dreams and desires. Sit outside, meditate, and let nature become a part of your work. Nature corrects our minds and bodies by connecting our spirit to the earth.
  4. Raise your vibration however you can. It’s different for everyone, but stay with positive thoughts and words.
  5. Change your actions. Everyone, who is awakening, knows there are specific actions that bring alignment with the inner self. These actions result in joy and positive change.

NOTE: We, the wolves, hear many of you talking about the world. You wish for change. You can begin right away on this day through these simple techniques. If 100 people can create a change in their life, their collective energy can bring many positive changes in the physical world.

Why Does Life Feel So Intense?

You may see master numbers like 11:11 or 22:22 while encountering synchronicity constantly—or you may feel frustrated and overwhelmed emotionally. A small event may send you reeling back into the worst of childhood memories, but you’re totally peaceful after a few minutes of meditation.

What’s happening? The earth (and humanity) are experiencing huge waves of light, solar storms, and fluctuations in geomagnetic field. Astrologically, we’re preparing for a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on July 2. (The chart lines up with aspects of the United States’ natal chart. Think about what you love about it because conjunctions intensify both good and bad.) Mercury retro begins on July 7 and extends throughout the month. A lunar eclipse comes on July 16 along with many retrograde, outer planets. Obviously, the earth and nature are changing with the current cosmic changes.

Yes, the energy will become stronger, and people will probably become more reactive unless the “conscious” group devotes to more meditation.

Why Are People So Emotional?

Light amplifies everything. Think about shining a huge light on a room. You’ll see the dust and dirt hidden beneath the surface. The same is true with the self.

The past is “up” for examination. It usually doesn’t feel good to relive mistakes and painful events. However, it’s how you evolve. However, karma is simply a lower vibration. When you learn how to maintain a higher vibration and/or new vibrations, you displace karma and create new opportunities in life. (Light and/or a higher frequency actually connects you to the quantum field where energy behaves very differently, creating small and large miracles.)

What About Self-Sabotage?

Self-sabotage and mistakes come from a relatively, small part of the self. If you’re experiencing awakening and/or higher consciousness, you’re probably complex with many, different parts of the self.

Only a small part of you (one part of the self) is making mistakes, and it occurs when you’re not awake. This part of the self will share ideas and thoughts when you’re not paying attention. They often sound good because they are part of an old pattern—a program to keep you in the comfort zone of staying the same. You’re noticing self-sabotage because you’re awakening. Otherwise, you wouldn’t notice it. You’d think life wasn’t working, and it wasn’t your fault.

NOTE: It doesn’t help to feel guilt or blame yourself. It’s best to know a small part of you created the dissonance. Send light to it. Promise to do better.

What Can You Do?

It’s important to remember this is a time of awakening. There are huge opportunities for growth in consciousness, manifesting our dreams, and bringing wholeness into this incarnation. (I didn’t say it was easy!)

Meditation and manifestation are very important because meditation teaches connection with the Divine, and manifestation teaches us how to reach the quantum field. They both raise your frequency, which how spiritual change takes place. (It’s not selfish because we learn – and want to – share whatever we manifest with others. It’s particularly true if you’re creating from your heart.)

Focus on the heart in moments of chaos. Ask for help instead of focusing on problems. Call on your angels, guides, and the universe. Imagine having the solution instead of searching for it.

There’s a part of you that knows what to do. You may not find it right away, but it will appear if you focus on it.

When Does It Begin?

Class begins on Wednesday, July 10 and goes through March 2020.

About Julia

Over the years, I have studied Zen, Buddhism, Shamanism, the Kabala, Alchemy, astrology, herbalism, and  yoga as well as meditating for much of my life. When I met real wolves, I began to hear and perceive the voices of plants, animals, and people. I translated these experiences into techniques and understanding about energy that truly works.

Planetary Change: New Moon Abundance

May is a particularly beautiful month. The Sun sits in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, and it conveys a time of flowers—an abundance expressed by the physical world. For the month of May, the lesson appears as realization of our ability to create and receive abundance in physical form. (Abundance is love, joy, health, beauty, and wealth.)

The New and Full Moons tend to heighten our impression and sensation of energy as we experience the absence and presence of light simultaneously as a group. As the group energies become stronger, our experience becomes more intense. The New Moon on May 4 follows the recent pattern of increased awareness, tension, and opportunity of opening to spiritual light.

The Sun (life) and Moon (moods, emotions) are conjunct (close) in Taurus. They trine (harmonious) Saturn, the giver of structure, lessons, and karma. In this case, we may a clear path through karma or recreate our life in a new form. Sun and Moon sextile (positive) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). This aspect may help with receiving hints or insights from the mysterious, unseen world. Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Pluto (underworld, regeneration), granting power to move through subconscious limitations and/or the courage to move forward in life.

Mercury (communications, thought) and Venus are placed in Aries, a fast-paced fire sign, which encourages thoughts and insights that create activated change in life. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love, beauty), aligning the mind with the heart. Mercury and Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), indicating positive energy with taking steps forward in life. However, both planets square (tension) Saturn (karma, limitation), and this can slow our progress. (It may also indicate the need for review the heart’s true desire before taking a step into expansion.) Mercury and Venus square (tension) Pluto in Capricorn, asking for a review of our personal limitations and a change of perception that may be necessary before altering our lives.

Mercury and Venus represent thought and love. We all have perceptions about the self, life, and love that limit our ability to step into wholeness and abundance. Additionally, we have limiting thoughts about ourselves and life—and we’re only beginning to learn how to love ourselves personally. The aspects with Saturn and Pluto mentioned above are about resourcefulness and learning how to change ourselves through universal love and quantum experiences. (It takes time.)

Mars (action) is placed in Gemini, an air sign, which can cause the mind to interfere with action. Gemini represents the twins, and it’s easy to become lost in the mind before realizing an action has not been completed. Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it causes more confusion to unsettled mind. Fortunately, Mars is in opposition (opposite) Jupiter (good fortune), which is actually a positive aspect. It gives courage and enthusiasm along with a desire to pursue our quest. (Part of the lesson is to pursue a quest, which benefits the “All”. In other words, we need an unselfish quest aligned with universal truth.)

Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and personal expansion. The planet trines (harmonious) Uranus, which represents the New Age. Together, they increase exuberance, good luck, and hopefulness. Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto, which asks for the discovery of aspects of the self (and the world) that slow our progress on the path of life. Through this discovery, we make meaningful change.

Saturn (karma) conjuncts Pluto (underworld, transmutation), bringing ambitions and the desire for change to forefront. Pluto incites ambition and the desire for power, and Saturn modulates it with a desire for disciplined devotion and patience. It can heighten fear, obsession, and desire for power—or it can act as force to tear down incorrect structures in our lives and rebuild them in a new form.

Uranus (sudden change or quantum field) is placed in Taurus and is remarkable for aspects only with Mercury, which can inspire higher thinking, and Jupiter, which brings hopefulness and optimism with future pursuits.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces forms sextiles with Sun, Moon, and Saturn, opening the door to mystical insights through dreams and inner realizations.  A square with Mars (action) can cloud our perception of right action and/or reading of intuitions and insights. Jupiter (good fortune) square Neptune, and it teaches about our misconceptions and illusions in life. It can also reveal our naivety in relationships, particularly about trusting others.

Pluto holds a big space in this chart. In retrograde position, it tends to reveal aspects of life that are hidden—and require unveiling.  With exception of Uranus, every planet in the chart makes an aspect with Pluto, so it is affecting us on almost every level. (There’s a saying, “Everyone has a chapter in life that they don’t read aloud.” Pluto’s current influence may require that we read it aloud—at least to ourselves. When we face our inner darkness, we find strength to recreate by becoming more in alignment with the inner self.)

Planet Retrograde

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) are currently in retrograde. On a basic level, Jupiter asks for review of what keeps us from our dreams. Saturn brings personal lack and limitation to the surface. Pluto shows the hidden darkness within ourselves in our lives. These particular retrogrades ask us to look at what we don’t what to see, but the purpose actually serves us. It’s about seeing the truth and moving in new directions in our lives. (It’s only through the transmutation of the shadow that we find our wholeness.)

The North Node, representing the spiritual direction of group consciousness, is in Cancer. North Node in Cancer asks for respect for feminine, empathy, and kindness. Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld) oppose it. (Saturn and Pluto currently push us into personal power and acquisition of goals, the opposite energy of North Node.) Venus (love, beauty) squares (tension) the North Node. Together, the planets and North Node deliver a message. It’s wonderful to realize goals and make progress in our outer life, but the desires should also promote opening the heart and nurturing others as part of our self-expression and growth.

Notes:

  1. The chart is strong in fire (passion) and earth (grounding).  These elements together encourage passionate motion and quiet time spent in reflection or aligning with nature. There’s a focus on abundance and optimism. (See Sabian symbols below.)
  2. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide a push about contemplating and creating abundance. Trines with Saturn and Pluto give power and insight into creating structures in life. (Release the old life while imagining a new one. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love, partnerships) in Aries push us onward with this pursuit.
  3. Mercury (mind) and Venus (love) square Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld, transformation), encouraging patience and spiritual devotion to overcome energies and karma from the past.
  4.  Life may seem more beautiful than usual because of aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion). It heightens intuition and brings answers in a dreamy way.
  5. Higher thought and love are part of evolution. It’s important in creating a new way of being and living. Higher thoughts connect us to the divine, and the right kind of love opens the heart to new possibilities. Right thought and love serve to lift and evolve human consciousness.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon on Taurus 15, “A Man with a Silk Hat, Muffled Against the Cold, Braves a Storm”.  The symbol refers to a storm. It may appear in the outer world as a shared emotion or difficulty; it could also refer to personal emotions or hardships. The silk hat represents the importance of believing in indications of prosperity and better times—or remaining optimistic while moving through difficulties. (in this chart, it could refer to the influence of Saturn (karma) and Pluto (underworld) as we clear the substance of the influences of past memories and hardships.

Mercury sits on Aries 27, “Through Imagination, A Lost Opportunity Is Gained”. It’s a marvelous symbol for the New Moon, which depicts the power of manifestation—the ability to bring thoughts into form by imagining and visualizing lost hope, opportunities, and joy. It points to the power of using the mind and communication with the Divine to recreate one’s life in a wonderful way.

Venus is placed on Aries 18, “An Empty Hammock Hangs Between Two Lovely Trees”.  Venus represents love, partnerships, and beauty. Relaxing in nature with a soft focus on dreams can sometimes activate the inner self, enhancing the alignment with manifestation—the development and creation of a desirable life.  

Mars sits on Gemini 23, “Three Fledglings in a Nest High Up in a Tree.” Birds are creatures of the air, which can represent the messengers of divine messages. Again, the image of resting in a safe place appears in the astrological line-up.  As time passes and the fledglings grow, they will master the power of soaring through the air. (Air represents thought, so we may develop our ability to cultivate thoughts that lead to a higher understanding of the spiritual world.)

Jupiter is on Sagittarius 24, “A Bluebird, a Sign of Good Luck and Happiness, Is Standing at the Door of the House”. A symbol for optimism appears again with the bluebird of joy. Awareness of good signs, energies, and the hints that point to synchronicity, we can open to a tide of good fortune although we journey through the storm, symbolized by the Sun and Moon.

Moving into the New World

Image by Theodore Rosenburg

Everything works a little differently in the Age of Aquarius. Its energies heighten our intuition, connect us to others, and increase sensitivity. These changes relate to awakening, but we can create more effective change by examining the underlying forces and making small alterations in consciousness.

  1. We’re learning to work with problems in a new way. In the Piscean Age, life often changed if we meditated, prayed, and talked about problems. In the Age of Aquarius, there are many layers in the paradigm. The first solution involves moving into a neutral place of being and focusing on universal love. When the mind is empty, we can send light to problem and focus on the feeling of a state higher consciousness for a few moments by sending a color or positive feeling to the problem. The second step is teaching the mind to stay away from the problem except in moments of meditation and/or positive envisioning. (In short, we send higher vibrations to a problem as opposed to talking and/or thinking about it.)
  2. Energy responds to original thoughts, the heart, and positive visualizations. We can think beyond our habitual reality, use the imagination to create a better personal world, and energize it by sending love and light. We can only receive what we envision—and what we think that we deserve. (Positive feelings, optimism, and increased physical energy follow the right visualization or a jump in the imagination.)
  3. Empathy and boundaries work together. We can empathize with a person’s placement of consciousness, but we can’t allow them to consistently pull on our energy field. (In other words, send light but keep a distance.) We can ask the universe to make it clear about who we should have in our lives. It’s also a way of telling the universe about our desires for future relationships.
  4. There’s a growing realization that answers and change come from the inner self. Communion with the inner self, through meditation or reflection brings insight about the self. It’s also the best formula for the changing our personal world and influencing people around us. Our efforts to express the inner self truly lift the world frequency–and create space for growth and change.
  5. We’re learning about universal love – the force that brings healing, answers, and respite from the outer world. Universal love and personal love are very different, but we’re learning how to combine the two. Personal love often comes from experiences and beliefs, which not always true; universal love is about the light and “force” in everyone. Our highest level of love comes from the inner self. When it is intermingled with universal love, it becomes a powerful force for good.
  6. Working with nature and the physical body is part of anchoring change. A growing awareness of the physical body can intuitively guide us to the best diet, exercise, and rest plan for the day or week. Emotions and sensations (feelings of the physical body) teach about the alignment of consciousness. (We also feel changes in energy field, magnetism, and solar flares through the body, which teaches about periods of rest, activity, and focus.) Nature responds to us more quickly when we’re aware of the body. With practice, we can notice how the natural world around us responds to our mood.
  7. With the appearance of intense duality, we’re learning the art of centering. In the center, we don’t go up or down. We feel the heart space—and our inner being—which is how we stay centered. It’s also the place where the universe whispers solutions and lifts us into a higher state of being.
