Moving through Change and Transition

In this New Age, we are always moving through transition of some kind. It may be a new job, relationship, or location–or it may simply involve aligning with a higher frequency.

It’a always possible to make change easier through meditation and alignment with the Universe.

Small and Simple Methods to Change the World

Sometimes, the world can seem heavy or dark. We feel its weight. We may experience mass consciousness, a pool of the lower emotions and thoughts of humanity.

Fortunately, each of us can help by perceiving the world differently through thought, emotion, and visualization–or by sending light. (Sending light and/or love is quite different when it is sourced through the inner self. It is a pure, beautiful substance that uplifts whatever it touches. The word “love” has many connotations, but love sent from the heart space is a force.

The tips and techniques are about raising frequency, perceiving the power of goodness and love, and gaining awareness of our personal ability to alter the flow of life in a positive sense.

Here are few ideas:

  1. Affirm the power of love and have faith in the universe. Believing in the power of love and light is part of utilizing it. (The “feeling” and faith are part of sending light. Visualization and connection are also important.)
  2. Send light and love to the geographical location of any disturbance. Send light to everyone, who is involved in the problem. Imagine love and light changing and raising the energy of the location.
  3. Focus on peace and let it radiate through you–and out into the world. Allow your personal sensation of peace to flow through thoughts and feelings about a specific situation or location. Make a strong choice about placement of consciousness. Encourage others to do the same. (Teach yourself to feel and emit peace.)
  4. See the opposite of a current situation. See peace instead of violence.  See a safe and beautiful world. Visualize new forests in the place of deforestation. See water for the thirsty and food for the hungry. (Take 5 or 10 minutes to “see” this clearly.)
  5. Believe in the power of spiritual work. Meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and helping others raises the planetary vibration. It does a great deal in creating a better world. The work helps, and the desired change is coming.
  6. Avoid reactive people. It’s impossible to move into a state of self-observation when people strongly express negative opinions. Stay neutral and work from a place of love. Observe and detach from the media. (We’re leaving the time of Kali Yuga when negative vibrations were attractive and inviting. The media makes life seem worse by focusing on negativity. Choose to be different and stay focused on the positive.)
  7. KNOW there is a great deal of love on this planet. We may not always see it, but love and light are the underlying fabric of matter. The light is growing. (A good intuitive can “see” it.)

Planetary Change and New Moon

 

The sky is calmer since the passage of the equinox, the end of Mercury retrograde last week, and the movement of planets into Aries, and other aspects.  However, life remains somewhat free-flowing—a time of reflection while spring awakens the beauty of the earth.

The dark phase of the moon brings the New Moon on April 5, and it remains a time of introspection. Think of seeds lying deep in the earth; it’s same with our aspirations for growth and change. At the same time, the day of the New Moon (and the three days following) are an excellent time for reviewing and renewing plans in the physical/spiritual world.

In month of April, three planets will move into retrograde position. Jupiter, planet of good fortune, will move backwards from April 10-August 11. As Jupiter rules discovery, abundance, and journeys, it’s a time to make corrections on our spiritual path by committing to aspects of life that support our growth. Pluto, planet of transformation and the underworld, is retrograde April 24-October 3. It tends to reveal hidden emotions and old, painful stories before lifting them into the surface of consciousness. It also allows us to rewrite our life stories (and beliefs) in a more victorious way. (Of course, we have to see the truth before we can rewrite into another form.) Saturn moves in retrograde on April 30-September 18. Much of Saturn’s influence is about finding devotion on the higher path and overcoming obstacles by following the light. This path also requires on many levels.

In many ways, the planets are our teachers. The moons (new and full) create a cycle of changing emotions and energies to demonstrate the realm of emotion/thought, which occur in response to various energies.

This New Moon asks for independence, boldness, and courage by moving into the new territory of our dreams. With Sun and Moon in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, it’s important to make new beginnings, plan our lives in a new way, and feel the joy of creation. (Think of the lamb, the symbol of Aries, the appearance of the flowers, and the hope and loveliness that are found in the beginning phases of life.)

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) in Aries tend to propel our energies in a forward direction. They trine (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), eliciting positive outcomes from positive interactions with steps taken in life to create a more positive life and flowing emotions. Sun and Moon square Saturn (limitation, karma), making it necessary to push determinedly through obstacles and old, worn-out perceptions about our lives. Sun and Moon square Pluto (underworld, transformation), making it necessary to find the truth about subconscious feelings and free them by recreating them into a higher form. (Fortunately, Sun and Moon are very creative in a fire sign.)

Mercury (communications) remains in Pisces, linking us into mystical communications and confusing us with the dual-vision of Pisces (two fish swimming in opposite directions.)  Mercury squares (tension) Jupiter (good fortune), which may help with discerning our higher and lower thoughts—and their benefit/lack of benefit. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Neptune in Pisces, amplifying the free-floating feeling, which we’ve experienced for weeks. (On the positive, it can heighten our intuition and mystical nature.)

Venus

Venus (love, partnerships) is beautifully placed in Pisces where it is exalted, offering an expression of mystical, idealistic love in the physical world. It can also help us to connect more deeply with divine forces, which serve us with our life purpose. (Venus, Mercury, and Neptune rise in this chart, offering a doorway into love and higher frequencies.) Venus squares (tension) Mars (male energy), which may make communication between the sexes more difficult than usual. But Venus also conjuncts (close to) Neptune, which can awaken dreams of the heart and nourish the spirit.

Mars (male, energy) is in Gemini, the sign of the twins. In this air sign, Mars lacks traction; it’s more difficult to move forward. We also experience some of the push me/pull me energy, which appeared last month with many signs of Pisces. (Think of a red light that turns green and not knowing if you turn right or left!) Fortunately, the energy of Sun/Moon in Aries can push us through life.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Sagittarius continues to ask for heightened interest in spirituality, study, and inner development. Jupiter trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), increasing our ability to harmoniously combine the old and new world. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), creating the need for discernment between the lovely, flowing feeling of connection and creating a path (life) that serves us. Jupiter also squares (tension) Chiron, the wounded healer, which may heighten awareness of old wounds and karma.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) continues to square (tension) Pluto (underworld, transformation), dredging the dark material of the River Styx into the light for transformation into something beautiful and new. Neptune sextiles (harmonious) Pluto, offering unconditional as part of the process of transformation, the beautiful and challenging way of life in a New World.

Message for Wolves

 

In my life, I spend time with wolves. I visit friends who raise or live with them, I see wolf hybrids when I walk on streets of Asheville, NC where wolves are legal pets, and I see them at the vet with owners who are ignorant of their wolf percentage. A thrill of connection runs through us, and I hear their thoughts and feel their energy—a wild, deep feeling between souls and hearts.

It is uplifting and spiritual; yet, it connects to the earth, the ancient, ever-changing mother of our physical lives—a place to learn how to alter the physical world through aligned thoughts and actions. On the highest level, it is accomplished by aligning consciousness with the earth and the sky (universe).

I feel the wolf spirit that runs through the planet and me. Sometimes, it’s simply energy. At other times, there are messages, and wolves appear in my dreams. When they share a message for light givers in particular, I hear a rumbling that translates into words.This is true today. The wolves have awareness of the shifting energy on the planet. It’s more than astrology, geology, or knowledge of the past and future, which they possess. It’s a rollicking movement of many energies tat one time. Let’s call it a challenge.

Here’s their message:

The earth is changing by emitting many different frequencies such as high and low energies, changing its ley lines, and altering the poles. Even the trees and flowers are growing in a new way although few people notice.

Another way of seeing this is to notice how physical energy changes from day to day. People are sometimes tired and/or heavy. On other days, they feel uplifted and energetic. Sleep patterns also change with motions and energies of the earth, which give patterns of sleeplessness, light sleep, and a drowsiness that makes it difficult to stay awake and have enough rest.

On a spiritual or psychic level, the gifts of those, who are aligned, are heightening. For those who have done the work, their intuition grows sharper and often delivers images and words. At this point, people actually move into higher sphere of being when reading energy. So, they are moving in and out of zones of consciousness, which can feel tiring or uplifting. (People move in and out of higher dimensions, and wolves can be heard accurately in a higher dimension.)

There are many waves of cosmic energy that affect the planet. One waves if love, and it is uplifting, reminding humans of their ability to overcome all things. There are lower vibrations, which come from many sources, although it is possible to rise above them.  Also, there is wave of lower humanity that is heavy with fear, and it can send consciousness to a lower level.

Karma is another issue. Many people are overcoming the karma of limiting beliefs and their vision of how life affects them—whether it is true or not. Others think the work of light is to carry others and embrace their problems. (Simply shine the light of happiness and connection whenever possible to truly lift up others.)

Another problem is the lack of love for the planet, and the perpetual visualization of the wipe-out of species, the destruction of the earth, and a helpless feeling that accompanies these thoughts. Use your power and see the earth as whole and beautiful. See things that don’t exist such as beauty, birds, and trees wherever they are not. (This is the use of superpower!)

We know that a challenge meets the people, who are growing—sometimes on a daily basis. But it is truly an opportunity to use inner power on all levels and at all times. Think of it as one of the last of series of tests on the subject of mastery.

We see who is aligned, making a true effort, and attempting to live in love and truth on a tumultuous planet. We also the ones who are not, and their time is limited. As the energy rises, the change will take place. The wolves send their energy to the courageous ones, who keep trying, visualizing, praying, and moving forward. The energies will soon support you. Have faith.

Questions:

Q: For those of who are making the effort, the energy is sometimes overwhelming. What can we do?

A: Become completely present and ask for help. Ask for a higher vibration. Think about how it feels when you are calm and happy. Then, focus on your heart. (When you are completely present in your heart, the energy cannot move you.)

Q: How can we connect to the earth more fully?

Notice the changes, the new location of the sun/moon, the change in growth patterns of trees and flowers, and imagine a beautiful, ecologically whole planet. The earth feels these slight shifts in consciousness and responds by protecting and loving you in the same way that the universe hears prayers.

Q: What is the best way of working with the waves?

A: First of all, they do not affect everyone at one time as do planetary or astrological aspects. Other people in your home may not feel or react to them. Know they are temporary. Become present, listen to your body and act accordingly, and focus your consciousness on how it feels when you are strong and happy.

Q: How can we move through karma more quickly?

A: By realizing that your understanding of karma (for many) relates to thousands of years of conditioning and various religions and much of it is based on your beliefs about yourself, your life, and what you think will happen. Your “program” pulls in people, events, and circumstances that prove it to you.

(Yes, everyone creates actions that are out of alignment, but they change by a strongly correct action and/or a huge shift in attitude. Nothing is fixed forever in place on this planet; a huge shift in consciousness can wipe the slate clean.)

Harmony with this planet is attained through the heart, right thoughts, and powerful actions. All emotions can be useful if applied correctly—and if there is work to understand where they come from.

Q: Why does it take so long for good events and happiness to manifest when it seems negative thoughts can manifest quickly?

A: People do not truly believe in miracles. You don’t see them. People tend to talk about negativity and watch shows about negative drama. With your head so filled with these things, there is not space for the magnificent.

While many incorrect beliefs were proliferated by religious organizations, there was once a very strong belief in the magic of miracles, blessings, and the appearance of good things.

When many people with light devote their consciousness to the creation of miracles, they will occur everywhere, but there many habits of limited thinking that wait for eradication. The new waves of love, the motion into new dimensions by those who awake, and deep understanding that positive manifestation comes through the inner self is part of the change.

Another part of this is the understanding of greater connection, people rarely wish good things for other people, and this delays their own manifestations. People are out of the habit of sending love as a wave, which uplifts everyone. And they have forgotten to listen to the Earth, have forgotten that nature herself makes the changes, which brings life and energy into physical form.

It is good to ask the Earth for protection, to ask her transmute emotions, and align your consciousness with your true life, the one you deserve.  Ask her to help you in hearing your inner voice.

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!

Super Moon and Equinox Energies

 

It’s an incredibly intense and exciting equinox followed by the Full Super Moon on March 20.  It is a time of clarity and intention for spiritual seekers—an opportunity to move more deeply into the light and awaken inner abilities. In a sense, it is an elevator ride for those who are ready to know more, express the essence of the heart, and move more into their inner being.

Sun in Aries marks the beginning of a new cycle, the return of the light, which brings equivalent day/nights. It urges us to balance the light and darkness within ourselves. (The light leads and sustains on a spiritual quest; the dark nourishes the unknown and undiscovered within us. By exploring the darkness, we integrate the unknown and find gifts and treasures.)

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun (life, light) is “A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal Is Embracing Her.” The sea refers to mass or group (emotional) consciousness, which shapes our lives until we become conscious enough to seek new land. The seal represents a creature that is equally comfortable on the earth and in the sea. Overall, the symbol speaks about the emergence of life into a physical form that reflects our inner being and conscious spiritual desires.

The Moon (emotions, the mother) is in Libra, a sign of beauty and balance. The Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action), allowing our emotions to align with action. The Moon trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), and this aspect gives the power to unravel secrets and alter our emotions to transmute old patterns and create a better life. The Moon also conjuncts Super Galactic Center, a black hole that can represent darkness or enlighten us about our relationship with the dark or unevolved parts of life (personal or outer world.)

Mercury remains retrograde until March 28. It sits in Pisces, casting a spell of mild tiredness and weary confusion. (Mercury retro always does this.) However, its symbol is “A Master Instructing His Disciplines”, which may refer to the importance of transcending lower emotions such as moving through small frustrations and having patience when electronics and/or communications refuse to cooperate.

On a higher level, Mercury’s retrograde in Pisces brings conflicting emotions to the surface. Often, we have two voices or two feelings about a situation, and we vacillate about them without finding the answer. Mercury retro encourages remembering that the answers are in the heart, and it’s how we transcend duality. That’s the lesson. (Mercury sextiles (positive) Mars (action), Saturn (karma, structure), and Pluto (underworld, transformation), so there are many influences to help in finding clarity.)

Venus (love, partnerships, art) sits in Aquarius, a somewhat detached air sign. It encourages detachment from passion with a focus on spirituality and humanity. On the interesting side, Venus prefers the unusual and eccentric in this position. Venus squares (tension) Mars, asking for communion between the male/female sides of the self. The planet also sextiles (positive) Jupiter (good fortune), encouraging expansion in spiritual pursuits and love for humanity at large.

Mars (action, male) in Taurus helps with strength in action, particularly changes in the physical world. The planet trines (positive) Saturn, which gives clarity in action and a strong sense of structure. Mars also trines Pluto, aligning our consciousness with hidden resources and power.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Sagittarius asks for pursuit of spiritual quests. It indicates expansion comes from this course of action. Jupiter trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and the aspect can create unexpected good fortune or the simple feeling of alignment with the good in life. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), asking for resolution between higher growth and mystical insights and/or dreaming.

Saturn (karma, limitation) sits in Capricorn tends to rule the world through finance and corporations. It sextiles Neptune (mysticism, idealism), which means our spiritual ideals and dreams may influence the flow of its energy. Saturn also conjuncts (close to) Pluto, which can awaken the underground energy or result in the creation of a new system of resources.

Uranus (sudden change, awakening) squares (tension) Pluto (underworld, transmutation), and it continues the process of pressuring us to examine our personal and global underworld to find the darkness and transmute it.

Overall, it’s an excellent chart for those who are prepared to reach a higher level of being. Certainly, it is a starting point for a big and positive shift.

NOTES:

  • It’s a wonderful chart for awakening, which supports growth and movement in our spiritual life. Sun in Aries, Mercury in Pisces, and Jupiter in Sagittarius encourage a state of receptivity to spiritual insights.
  • Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Jupiter, so we’re asked to consider how our lives, emotions, and thoughts are out of sync with the higher forms of good fortune and growth. (For example, we may know that we need to exercise more, but our habits and thoughts don’t support it.)
  • There’s an opportunity to glimpse our darkness—or how we become stuck there—with Moon conjunct Super Galactic Center. Part of the quest of the equinox is balancing darkness and light as nothing can exist in physical form without both dualities.
  • Mercury retro in Pisces stirs the waters and brings our conflicting emotions and thoughts to the surface. Again, centering or balancing is the goal, and we center through attention on the heart space.
  • The significant energy of a full moon (fruition) on the equinox hints at the appearance of a new cycle and a new phase of life.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun is on Aries 1, “A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal Is Embracing Her.” The symbol speaks of leaving the sea of conception through a conscious decision. A physical creature embraces and welcomes her. The symbol speaks of a new beginning, created by the light of consciousness.

Moon sits on Libra 1, “A Butterfly Preserved and Made Perfect with A Dart Through It.” The symbol refers to the preservation of beauty by artificial means—or capturing a moment or event that is displayed repeatedly in our consciousness. The answer lies in opening to the movement of the past and flowing into the future by transcending a frozen or stuck moment in time.

Mercury retrograde is placed on Pisces 19, “A Master Instructing His Disciples”. With Mercury retrograde in an emotional water sign, the symbol could easily refer to the importance of transcending emotion by centering in the heart. After all, it’s how we overcome oscillation. (Many recent astrological charts could refer to tests associated with spiritual growth.)

Venus sits on Aquarius 24, “A Man Turning His Back on His Passions Teaches Deep Wisdom from His Experience.” It’s an interesting symbol for Venus, the planet of love and relationships. Ironically, we often find greater love for our fellow humans and important “loved” ones by understanding the causes of our desires and passions. At this point, we may find our spiritual quest and/or a greater connection with the universe, which allows us to move into universal love, which ignites compassion and understanding.

Mars is placed on Taurus 24, “An Indian Warrior Riding Fiercely with Human Scalps Hanging at his Belt.” The Oracle warns of territorial pursuits, revenge, and conquests, which only lead to nightmares (eventually). Although we may feel victimized, it’s important to remember we have the power to change our lives and the energies around us.

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..

Sometimes, the world feels strange

 

Why does everything feel strange?

Everything feels strange because we are moving through a dispensation of light, which will last another 5-10 years. We’re between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius when light rains down on the planet—and the Precession of Ages, a 26,000 year cycle.

Uranus is square Pluto, and Earth is moving on her axis. It’s a time of group awakening. In past ages, individuals such as Christ or Buddha carried the light of enlightenment for the entire planet. This is a group effort, and many people are awakening on the planet. (It’s not enough to awaken. We have to do something with that energy!) In the Age of Pisces, the experience of unconditional love was the way of moving into Universal Light, In the Age of Aquarius, we see the inner self in everyone. But we also have to look at their character, energy, and way of life to discover if they are part of our endeavor. In other words, love the light but act in a discriminating manner with choices for friends.

The group initiative means we feel everyone else. On certain days, we are together in the light. When we’re not aligned with the inner self, we can feel everyone else’s shift. We also feel mass consciousness at the grocery store, movies, or mall. (We consistently experience the oscillation between light and darkness.)

One day, I feel fine. The next day, I feel terrible, tired, or emotional. What’s causing this?

There’s definitely an unsettled feeling. Oddly, we may feel it more when we’re very connected. Our inner awareness and intuition bring heightened awareness of change.

Earth is raising her frequency and pivoting between several physical points on her axis. (No, it’s not a polar shift.) The old points of alignment feel good to our bodies. The new points of alignment bring in an entirely different energy. The shift of the earth causes changes in the cycle of life. The days are longer, and the shadows look different. Everything is growing at an accelerated rate. There are significant changes with animals and birds.

The earth exudes a rhythm, which we feel physically and emotionally. The rhythm is interrupted as the earth rocks on her axis. Hypothetically, the motion occurs to shake up old patterns and help in raising our vibration. (Be patient. Everyone is adjusting.)

The new energy can feel exhilarating or exhausting. It depends on what we’re doing, the placement of our consciousness, and our overall frequency. The energy also brings awareness of health issues, emotional/mental patterns for clearing.

On the positive side, it’s much easier to manifest when “material” reality is unstable. Energy flows more easily and adapts to new forms. The important part is taking time to sit, center, and focus on visualization. (It also helps to walk and garden.) And there are also moments of feeling divinely connected.

Are there other reasons for feeling weird?

Yes. Uranus is square Pluto until March 2019 when it returns to Taurus, an earth sign. Chiron (wounded healer) moves back into Aries in February. Currently, we are re-experiencing the energies between 2012-2018.  Uranus in Aries (new beginnings, anger, passion + planet of sudden and spiritual change) is square Pluto (resources, subconscious, unknown darkness, transformation) in Capricorn. It’s a difficult square, and it can sometimes bring up more than we think is bearable. (We’ll get through it.)

Uranus exudes awakening, and Pluto reveals hidden truths, shadows, and subconscious emotions/thoughts. We’re dealing with our darkness and light—and seeing more about the political, economic world. In the big picture, it helps in making decisions to create a better world.

NOTE: Recent astrological charts presented aspects to help in becoming aware of karma as well as mystical, healing aspect that require opening to love. It’s wonderful, but it’s not always easy!

What can I do about it?

Hang on for the ride. Accept the ups and downs. Nurture yourself on tired days and achieve on good days. Understand the rhythms of the energy. Nothing lasts forever; it changes from day to day.

Check in with your inner self. Ask if today is a good day for errands, emails, new clients, or deep talks. Make the physical body stronger and spend time observing the flow of nature. Feel your flow. Trust that we’re moving into a time of greater love. (Don’t worry about the people who don’t feel the fluctuations or step into awakening. Stay centered and trust your inner self.)
