Manifestation: One of the Keys of Awakening

 

Manifestation is part of awakening. We become aware of how we create our lives as we grow in consciousness. (Everyone is already manifesting, but it’s mainly unconscious.) If we imagine a loop of tape playing and replaying, we might wonder why it continues to play, or we might decide to change the tape. That’s the basic substance of manifestation.

When we realize that we have the power to change the tape, then we alter the direction of our lives. If this realization comes with awakening (and a higher level of vibrations), we know it’s important to create a life in alignment with the inner self. As we expand into light and love, we naturally want to create and experience more “good” in life. Ultimately, it’s beneficial to ourselves and the people around us because everyone benefits from a higher frequency.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Meditation is one of the keys to the realization of the heart’s desire. It brings alignment with the inner self, which quietens thoughts and stills emotions. It also gives connection to the universe, the biggest source of love and light.
  2.  Manifestation alters our perception. It teaches focus on the positive sensations and images of what we want to create. When we focus on the good in life and see the positive, we move into higher vibrations where more possibility and opportunity exist. By focusing the mind, we learn to alter our perceptions.
  3. Many of our perceptions are based on experience and belief, which occur as part of our encounters with life. It doesn’t mean that life always responds in this way, or the outcome never changes. It simply implies that we need to see and feel life differently–and believe that we can change it in a positive sense.
  4. Working with manifestation teaches discernment. Over time, we learn the value of “things” lies in their resonance with our heart. If our desire doesn’t align with the heart or our inner self, it won’t bring joy. But repeated experiences teach the difference between the desires of the inner and outer being.
  5. Focusing on a positive vision teaches control of lower emotions and thoughts. Part of any manifestation lies in the substitution of one thought and image for another. (We can’t change and/or control everything, but we can influence a great deal. Also, we can change our emotions and thoughts.)
  6. The practice teaches a great deal about inner power as well as the changes that occur when we connect with the universe and the inner self. We can use the same practice to alter other people’s lives–and the world. (Everyone and everything is happier in a higher frequency.)
  7. The heart space expands when we step into creating the vision of the inner self. We feel more love and peace. And the world becomes more beautiful.

Thoughts about the Heart

 

In the heart chakra, there are the answers that we have searched for all along. We find the answers, little by little, as we change our frequencies. Our frequencies can change very quickly or very slowly, depending on how much we are willing to change our lives. This desire for change is awakened in the heart by joy.

It is the quest of the heart to desire expansion, to desire greater fulfillment and freedom. It is this expansion that opens our hearts to enlightenment. An experience of joyful enlightenment creates a natural desire for more of this experience. Our journey continues as a reflection of our spiritual nature in physical form.

Part of the continuation of the journey is the creation of the true self. The true self lives in the human heart. It is the place of intersection or the nexus for the soul and body, the resolution of duality. As the spiritual and physical nature merge, the soul casts light on the ego. The integration of the ego, as shaped by the soul, forms a third thing, known as the True Self. This is the experience of an outer reality that is based on the experience of the inner life. It is a cognitive journey

When we begin to receive messages from our heart, we essentially cast light on the darkness of the ego. For this reason, we may experience pain on our journey. (It’s not new pain, and it comes with the understanding that our patterns, memories, and responses are part of the darkness in our lives—and finding light is the panacea. It teaches us how to change both perceptions and beliefs.)

Moments of enlightenment begin as flashes. We learn to search within the heart, for it is said to be the plumb line that measures the depth and safety of the waters in which the seeker travels. Our  conflicting experience of reality becomes evident through witnessing the profound love of our glorious connection and the darkness of the separation when disconnected.

The darkness of separation is mitigated by discipline and changing our own character. There is a point when we understand that we are the creators – at least, in part – of the difficult circumstances in our lives. This experience of duality lessens through changing ourselves.

When we change ourselves, we experience a profound shift in vibratory frequency. We understand that the difficulties were necessary for the evolution of our soul. As we learn to love our journey as well as the darkness in our lives, we begin to love ourselves. We move into the love of the heart that is conscious awakening. This love opens a profound door to expression and expansion. As we love ourselves more, we learn how to love the fabric of the Universe.

5 Reasons to Open Your Heart

The Heart lies at the center of your being. The soul speaks through the heart and gives loving guidance. In metaphysics, the first true awakening comes through the heart center. Knowing and listening to your heart is a powerful tool. Here are five good reasons for working with this powerful center.

  • Truth and love flow through the heart. It is how we feel our alignment with the universe. The head generates many thoughts and ideas, but we feel their value through the heart. We move into a space of love by listening to the heart. We can actually weigh ideas through the heart. “Listen” and “feel” through the heart. Does the idea make your chest expand or contract? (For a year, I used this practice by asking if a thought came from the heart or not-self.) The universe speaks through the heart.
  • We receive and generate love through the heart space. We can ask for love or pink light. We can imagine a ray of pink light entering our chests and healing our body, emotions, and thoughts. When we feel love, we naturally radiate it out into the world. (True abundance comes from the space of the heart and alignment with universal love.)
  • We can discern between personal truth and non-truth by listening to the heart. There is a light, warm, easy feeling when thoughts resonate with the heart. We feel other thoughts in the head or pelvis area—the ones not resonating with the heart.) The heart moves us toward our dreams. The heart also tells us when there is dissonance in our environment because there is an uneasy feeling. It’s helpful to ask what can be changed and if we can take an action. Sometimes, the action is as simple as sitting outdoors or taking a break. We discern the right answer or simply move into a still place where we wait for the arrival of the answer.
  • The heart provides balance. Positioned in the center of the chakra system, it balances the physical chakras and spiritual chakras. As human beings, we have many desires at a given time. By listening to the heart, we can create a balance between physical routine and spiritual practice.
  • Passion is one of the biggest and best reasons for opening the heart. Spiritual passion pulls us into expression, enthusiasm, and ecstasy. The heart delights in the sensations of love and life. Through the heart, we experience expansion of life. We find the words, images, or actions to reflect beauty and joy. We find the courage to inspire, go forward, and express our gifts. (It’s not enough to push through life!) Passion is magical. It’s about wanting a desire enough to take a big step!

7 Tips for Raising Consciousness

 

Raising consciousness can help as the planetary weather draws our attention to aspects of life, which require our energy and/or a change in perspective. Problems and issues occur on a lower wave of consciousness—a lower vibration. When we raise our consciousness, we can see them from a different perspective.

It’s important because we tend to see what we do wrong when we’re correcting or examining an issue. Although the solutions are not always easy, we can find the strength to see life differently, take the next step, or calm our emotions. (Many of us are clearing patterns from past lifetimes. It’s hard work, and it takes energy.)

Raising consciousness is fairly simple. It may take several repetitions for a day or two, but it’s doable. Choose from the exercises to discover what works best for you.

1) Focus on the heart chakra where emotions are balanced. There is no motion—only unconditional love. You can see pink or emerald green light in heart space or middle of the chest (and emanate it into the space around you.) Simply thinking about the heart chakra takes you into a softer, quieter place. The heart is the center of your chakra system. This exercise balances the energy of the lower and upper chakras.

2) All problems relate to some form of fear. (Everyone has it although I think humanity is moving out of it.) Imagine the energy of your problem and send love to it. Love diminishes fear, and it will alter your consciousness temporarily. After all, the issue is “up” for examination, clearing, and healing. You’ll feel freer without it.

3) Problems tend to repeat on a cyclical basis. Changing emotions, reactions, and thoughts is part of clearing it. Any success with an aspect of a problem will reduce it–although it may return. (It’s easy to see how other people have repeating problems, and it’s difficult to see it within the self.) Eventually, you have insights, understanding, and changed behavior as a result of the problem. It tends to disappear at this point.

4) Emotions do not always emanate from you. If you briefly feel sad, angry, or another strong emotion–and the emotion grows stronger–it is probably not your emotion. You can ask for a higher level of consciousness and to disconnect from mass consciousness. (It often requires several “takes” for this to work.) When your emotions clear, take a few minutes to visualize your desired future. This practice brings in more love and courage as well as a higher vibration.

5) The practice of meditation lifts you to a higher place of being. Visualizing beautiful events and outcomes from a place of higher spiritual focus helps to bring them into being; it also raises the vibration of all of the particles in your personal reality.

6) Call on the angels or write an angel letter. Angels wait for your call. You can ask for angels to surround you with feelings of peace, bliss, happiness, or understanding. You can also ask for their help with a problem. (I’ve found it’s best to ask for their help to come softly, gently, and joyously to avoid abrupt changes in my life. The gentle changes feel nicer.)

7) Nature wants to help with your healing process. Energy collects in body as a result of spiritual, emotional, or mental tension. You can sit outdoors and ask for energy to heal your body or clear the mind. Walking in nature quiets the soul. The colors, shapes, and patterns are perfect for the body. You’ve walked enough when the mind becomes quiet without interruptions from thoughts. These techniques are particularly helpful when you ask for the healing presence of nature.

These practices often lead to non-ordinary solutions, realizations, and intuitions..

Opening the Heart Space

 

Opening our hearts to life is one of the most fulfilling tasks that we can undertake. When the heart chakra opens, we begin to weigh our actions from the heart. The heart is like a plumb line; it tells us when we are centered and when we are not.

Our culture is permeated with messages of “listening to your heart” and “knowing in your heart”. It is in the space of the heart that our true desires reside. The joy of the connection with the “One” or the “All” is felt in the heart. We find true compassion in the heart, not in the mind.

The Egyptians believed that the soul resided in the heart. The Goddess Ma’at weighed the human heart of the dead to discover if the soul had earned paradise in the afterlife.

Tibetan Buddhism describes the heart chakra as an 8 white-petal center that is the seat of the Very Subtle Mind and the Very Subtle Wind. These two qualities are immortal and reside in the seat of the heart from life time to life time. (For this reason, other people are recognizable in other lifetimes.) It is also described as the essence of Absolute Reality.

The heart chakra is the fourth chakra, or the Anahata. It resides in the middle of the chakra system, balancing the 3 lower chakras which rule physical life and the 3 upper chakras, which control our access to spirituality. The heart (Tiphareth) is found in the Middle Pillar of the Kaballah.

The Middle Way or Central Path is a dominant theme in philosophy. Balancing duality is an important task that is achieved by walking the Middle Path. Listening to the heart is the first step on this path. When we think with our heads and hearts in accordance, our actions begin to reflect a balance between thought and emotion. When we are one with the true or authentic self, the ego and soul are integrated. We live from the heart.

Alchemy describes the awakening of the heart chakra as the communication between the heart and the Higher Self or Holy Guardian Angel. As we receive our direction from the heart, our outer direction in life becomes dictated by our inner knowing. We access the truth of our Higher Self and the immortal wisdom of the heart space.

Experiencing Universal Love creates love for the self and others. Love becomes aligned with integrity, and our personal inner truth becomes more valuable. We gain true independence and self-reliance because we begin to relinquish our dependency on the outer world for direction.

We learn to love the light in everyone, but we also learn to value our selves. Love has many faces in the mirror-like quality of our Universe. Restriction/expansion represents an aspect of duality, which relates love. The restrictive nature teaches about boundaries, and the expansive side is about opening to larger realities and possibilities, offering a glimpse into the mystery of the All.

Speaking the truth of our hearts opens corridors of communication. When we live in the knowledge of our hearts, we give and receive equitably. When we are in balance with the One, this energy is reflected outwardly into the All. By simply reflecting on our hearts, we can affect marvelous changes in our lives that ripple outward into the world.

EXERCISES: The wisdom of the heart chakra can be accessed through practice, attention, and a true desire to experience Universal love. You may find that researching the heart chakra and drawing an image of the chakra is helpful and fun.

PINK HEART: Imagine that a beam from the Universe is pouring pink light (love) into the center of the chest. Breathe in this love and allow it flow throughout the entire body. Allow the pink light to flow into the nuclei of each cell and into the spaces between the cells. Remember: the Universe’s capacity to give is infinite. You can receive as much light as you desire. (Note: this exercise is included in last month’s voice stream on manifestation.)

SENDING LIGHT TO OTHERS: You can also radiate this love or pink light to any situation or person. Imagine that the beam of pink light is pouring into your heart chakra. When your heart chakra is full, imagine that your friends and loved ones. See if you can find a location for them or imagine that they are in the room with you. Radiate a beam of pink light to each of them. Return to the present moment and allow more light to flow into your heart chakra. When you share light with others, you increase your capacity to receive light. You should feel slightly energized after the completion of this exercise.

DAILY PRACTICE: Ask yourself several times each day when working, walking or performing daily tasks, “What does my heart think about this? How does my heart feel?” You may ask this question about people, situations, or changes in the flow of life. Eventually, you will “feel” or hear an answer from your inner self. You will know that this is your answer. (Truth is simple so your answer will probably be short.)

Aligning with Your Inner Self

 

This year, we’ll continue to experience duality as a series of beginnings and endings, peace and upheaval, and insight and confusion. Experiencing polarity is part of inner growth, and it’s also part of learning more about the inner self. Currently, we’re oscillating between uplifting realizations of the higher self and the difficult work of transcending karma.

The energy invites us to apply our knowledge about awakening and the inner self into “real” life while releasing what holds us back. It’s about creating life in a whole, new way. It’s transformation on a higher level.

  1. Staying centered and regulating emotion is part of moving into a higher reality. It’s impossible not to “feel” lower thoughts and emotions, but it’s also possible to observe them. Observation changes and/or neutralizes thought and emotion. From this place of consciousness, we can “see” or visualize what we want to experience. (Feelings and thoughts often come from others. When we are neutral, we disconnect from others–and mass consciousness.)
  2. Focus on the “opposite” to experience a different state of being. Focus on memories of feeling energized when tired. See yourself as strong when you feel weak. Notice how the placement of consciousness affects the flow of events. A higher placement of consciousness calls in happier, more uplifting events. (It doesn’t happen instantly. Stay with the work.)
  3. Meditation connects us into the universal flow. Everything changes in this place because it is the limitless source of love and light. The invisible world is far more powerful than the visible one.
  4. It’s important to focus on our dreams–the sensation of a bigger, better life—and the expansion of life. The desire for expansion comes from the inner self. Usually, we want greater expression, new experiences, and the opportunity to open the heart. Without the dream of expansion, we don’t move through limitations. We often accept them as our comfort zone. Take the time to visualize a better, wonderful life and fulfill your heart’s desire.
  5. Resolve to build positive practices such as meditation and physical exercise on a daily basis. The point is building good practices to support the higher self, but it won’t work with strict rules. You have to create your practice from love and desire to connection. It’s helpful to think of practices as supporting our lives and bringing in more joy and energy. Find a beautiful flow with your practice. (Once, I altered my schedule completely by making it the opposite of what I “thought” I wanted. It created an incredible flow, so stay flexible.)

Creating More Love

Image by Mary Cummings

 

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.)

Old Wounds

It’s important to know you lose energy around old wounds. If you’re honest, you usually have the same feelings when we’re depressed, angry, or upset. The old emotions and thought patterns typically elicit reactions from others. It’s part of a cycle, which occurs when your energy is low or upset.

To break the cycle, it’s helpful to notice where and how you lose energy. There’s usually a consistent pattern with energy and problems with other people. By noticing your reactions, you change them. (When you react in a different way, people respond in new ways.) As you master the reactions, you will gain energy. With more energy, it’s easier to create positive visualizations, habits, and patterns.

You’re not changing other people. You’re changing how you participate with reality and react to a specific set of stimuli. By “seeing” it differently, “reality” flows into a higher form.

The Future of Love

As the planet increases in frequency and collective consciousness grows in the direction of enlightenment, the definition of love will probably shift.

Love from the heart space is not like any other type of love. It brings a complete connection, a higher vibration that brings unity with a dialog of spirit because we know exactly how the other person feels. Real love is an intuitive language, which needs words only to shape the color of thoughts and emotions.

Working with New Energies

 

With the influx of energies, there is a shift in perception and our response to energy. Many people are awakening and bringing more light to the planet. As awakening continues, we perceive life differently because light causes everything to move at a higher frequency.

Here are a few insights:

  1. As we become more conscious, our awareness shifts. We become aware that “reality” shifts, spins, and stirs with the state of our consciousness, which is reflected in the flow of events.
  2. Other people and their energies impact our lives more deeply. As spiritual awareness grows, we perceive (and receive) more energy from others. As we become more conscious of our own energies, we perceive more information from others. We can use light to heal, block, or change the energy. (It’s also possible to learn about our vulnerability, karma, and who we truly want in our lives.)
  3. We affect “life” and our lives more than we want to admit. Our lower thoughts and feelings may attract an irritable person, and higher thoughts may pull in a flow of love. (For example, the sun shines when we think a higher thought, or we receive a pleasant email from a loved one.)
  4. Consciousness connects us more deeply to all sources of information and energy. We feel life more intensely. We may feel more drawn or repelled to particular sources of information. Our higher consciousness begins to direct us more strongly. (Higher consciousness opens the heart, brings in love, and makes feelings seem more intense.)
  5. Swings in duality – the movement of emotions and thoughts – may seem stronger. When we experience the inner self, consciousness moves into a place of being centered. It focuses on “ONE” point. Naturally, we’re more aware of the motion after a quiet experience.
  6. Increased consciousness brings awareness of our impact on our internal/external state. We begin to understand how our happiness and unhappiness respond to our internal dialog, old beliefs, and expectations. With this awareness, life shifts.
  7. Understanding of letting go and holding on becomes part of spiritual work. We learn to release our old beliefs and stubborn energies about our desired outcomes and/or turn over a problem to the universe for a larger solution. We also learn to become more determined with our intentions for a better life and to seek this with all of our will and might.
  8. “Giving” and “helping” are subtly changing. We can hold a vision or send light to anyone, but our spiritual help is balanced with the spiritual commitment and effort of the receiver. (In the Piscean Age, healers and light workers gave in a different way by pouring out energy whenever they felt led to share and help. In the Aquarian Age, we balance and gauge energy for the best effect.)
  9. During flashes of awakening, we perceive a beautiful future in a balanced world. There is a feeling of reassurance, comfort, and support. (We create the envisioned world through our individual perception of universal communication.)

Full Moon Forecast

 

 

 

The Full Moon appears on Fri, Nov 23 at a few minutes after midnight, but we’ll feel the pull of the moon throughout the holiday.  It’s not the best full moon for Thanksgiving with energy running high and wild with Mercury in retrograde, but there are methods for dealing with the zaniness (and tips at the end of the blog post.) Also, we know this a time when it’s important to live, speak, and talk differently by using the insights of the higher self, and this is a good time for practice.

It begins quite seriously with Sun (life, self), Mercury (communications), and Jupiter (good fortune) placed in Sagittarius, the sign ruling philosophy, long journeys, and study of the soul. But the Moon is in garrulous Gemini, an air sign that wants to talk, socialize, and perhaps say and buy too much. (Mercury is ruled by air, and it is poorly placed in Sagittarius, making the position of the moon more important than usual.) Mercury (communications, higher mind) should act in cerebral way, but it wants to visit, talk, and buy lots of things while in a disconnected state. The Moon (emotions) opposes Mercury (communications) and Jupiter (good fortune), which means our emotional nature is out of sync with communication and expansion. (Whenever possible, think or transmit peace and love.)

Think of a hippie dropping into a formal dinner party and dominating the conversation by sharing his or her travels over the past six months. Of course, that’s an extreme description. Nevertheless, it’s wise to decide to take a different view on the holidays. Release the memories of past gatherings, and use it as a time to use the skills of the inner self. (Prepare to listen to others, refrain from disagreements, stay quiet, and try your best to the underlying good in everyone. After all, that’s what spiritual work teaches us.)

Along with these odd placements, Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter square Mars (action). Squares cause tension and pressure, and Mars is action. These aspects make it more difficult to complete actions, follow through with tasks, and stay focused – particularly when traveling, utilizing electronics, or communicating. Tiredness and/or frustration may follow the completion of tasks, or it may seem to take longer than usual. (It doesn’t mean we can’t do these things; it simply requires more effort and focus.)

Venus (love, beauty, relationships) is softer in Libra than in Scorpio, which created much tension in love relationships in the past few months. But Venus opposes Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and this makes people act strangely or in unexpected ways around loving relationships. Venus also squares Pluto (underworld, transformation), bringing compulsive behavior and patterns to the surface. We’re continuing to experience insights into our behavior and emotions around love. The unexpected feelings and actions reveal where we’re not in alignment, and compulsive feelings/behavior indicate karmic and/or unresolved patterns.

Mars (action) forms lovely sextiles (mildly positive energy) with Saturn (karma, discipline) and Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), which can open our hearts and minds to inspiration and devoted action. Mars also conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and this can meaningful insights and the power to create effective change. Mars conjunct Neptune tends to give the power to bring a dream into form. In particular – the types of dreams that held in the heart.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) is placed in Sagittarius, which will eventually help in lifting our spirits and guiding us in the direction of our dreams. The past is repeating as Uranus (sudden change) moved back into Aries, and it squares Pluto (again). Chiron (wounded healer) moved back into Pisces so we’re dealing with issues from the past.

Sun (life) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Chiron (wounded healer), indicating that seeking healing can change our lives and bring good fortune. Saturn (limitation) squares Chiron, asking for us to let go of our perception of the past.

Notes:

  1. Astrology explains the feelings and tendencies of the current energies, but it doesn’t always tell you how to move through them. Visualization and meditation are helpful when the energies are a bit wild. This practice connects you to higher energies, which can overcome turbulence and lower energies from others.
  2. The Moon and Mercury (emotions and thought) are in opposition. It’s important to listen more than we talk. It’s probably not wise to buy anything online (unless you planned to buy it for months. The best time for shopping is after Dec. 6)  It’s helpful to visualize travel plans between Thursday and Monday. Communications have a tendency for misunderstanding. Think before you speak.
  3. Venus asks for a closer look at love. It’s not easy, but we can’t move into a higher dimension without understanding our feelings and patterns. Perception is part of transcending any problem.
  4. Squares with Mars will make action more difficult and tiring than usual. (Plan to rest.)   There is a boon with Mars; its conjunction with Neptune helps in creating plans to reach a long cherished dream.
  5. It’s a fabulous time to practice what you know about your inner self – and radiate light and peace. (The world needs you!)
