Shortening the Swing

In spirituality, the “swing” is well known. It involves riding the wave of emotion, the swing of thoughts, and motion of consciousness from low to high. It’s a part of spirituality, which is rarely addressed; it happens most often when you ascend to higher levels of consciousness.

Higher consciousness lifts you above the swing—and into a place of love and centering. In this place, it’s impossible to feel the swing, but it takes a lot of practice to stay there consistently. Alchemy refers to this practice as shortening the swing.

Here’s a meditation to help, but please read the blog first! https://InstantTeleseminar.com/Events/116471847

  1. It’s realistic to know you’ll experience the swing of consciousness. It can occur because of your geographic location, planetary events, family karma, and personal patterns. It’s helpful to observe your lower feelings while knowing the feelings won’t last forever. (If you apply some of the techniques listed below, you’ll find resolution more quickly.)
  2. Think about light and the good parts of life. Meditate often for short spans of time. Focus on a feeling of light. Ask for connection with the higher self. (Find the heart space and let love flow through your being.)
  3. Centering occurs in the heart. You literally contact the part of the self that knows the solution, the way into quieter, peaceful parts of life. It’s where truth abides.
  4. Ask for a higher pattern of results in life. Ask to see solutions and remember when life has moved more smoothly. See the opposite of whatever you are experiencing.
  5. Take long walks and sit in nature. Ask the earth to take your negative energy. Ask to feel the joyous parts of life. When you focus on the sensation of good instead of problems, the energy takes another form.
  6. Experiment by combining or altering meditation techniques. Ask your inner self for guidance. Act on every feeling and intuition. See where they lead you.
  7. Notice if the feeling is situational. If the feeling occurs when you are with specific people, it probably relates to them. If it appears with a specific task, you may feel your inner resistance, need to control, or old fears. Take a small step and reward yourself for taking action.
  8. Move into a state of knowing. Many of your thoughts and feelings are not real. They come from the lower self and habits or patterns. They disappear when you move into a higher state of consciousness. You are feeling all that you are leaving behind. In the future, you will “meet” more of your shining, incredible inner self.

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.

More on Manifesting

You are a creator, and you came here to create. It’s how you learn to master the flow of your energy and transform lower emotions and thoughts into a higher form. It’s how you create possibility, beauty, and wonderful solutions out of darkness and chaos.

It’s how you create harmony in a world, which is out of alignment. It’s the way you transform a negative situation into a positive one. It’s how you awaken the creativity of the heart. The process brings awakening and connection with the inner self.

  1. The first step lies in possibility—and believing that your experience of the world can become better. It requires a new dimension of thought as to what is possible—and opening to what is amazing. Your consciousness must move from limitation to expansion.
  2. Change can be as simple as more harmony in life and moving above lower vibrations, which cause stress or anxiety. It can be as complex as a whole new life, which opens gifts and fulfills the heart.
  3. Manifestation begins with lack—an unfulfilled desire, an inner longing, or a need to experience the opposite of a problem. By visualizing and “feeling” the desired state, your consciousness learns to move in a different, higher direction. This practice leads to perception of possibilities, a subtle change in how you see the world and (ultimately) an understanding of how to change your energy to experience more “goodness” in life.
  4. It’s best to begin with a few minutes of meditation and find the light. Follow the practice with an image and feeling of your desire as already fulfilled. Live in the image as often as you like. Imagine it has already occurred, and you live in a new level of happiness and harmony.
  5. When your practice becomes strong, you will receive insights and intuitions. You will become more aware of your inner self—as well as the part of the self who has been limited by the lack of change.
  6. Your thoughts and feelings will change. There will be moments of illumination when change seems likely; there will be moments when it feels that life will never change. In the dark moments, it’s necessary to hold the visuals and return to the feelings. It’s part of the process of overcoming doubt and fear. It also means you’re closer to your desire.
  7. You will become aware of your inner self as you work in the direction of a desire. incredible moments of connection, realization of beauty, and amazing wonder will come as you progress with your work. You will begin to perceive the energy that lies beneath the material world, and the energetic forces will work with you. (There’s a tendency to believe the world is against you when confronting subconscious patterns. It’s the opposite with manifestation.)
  8. With every desire, there is an obstacle or block. You learn how to move through the obstacle with creative thoughts, calming your emotions, and visualization to find the root cause of the problem. This leads to right action, which is usually prompted through meditation and by suggestions received through intuition.
  9. This process is also called awakening. It’s a subtle realization of knowing you can use your energy (thoughts, emotions, actions) to create a shift in life. After repeating the process several times, you can see good things for others, and they will occur. Life will continue to create challenges, but you’ll have more, new tools every time. More importantly, you’ll have the key to your inner self, know how to listen to the universe, and use the experience to move into deeper awakening. (Between the challenges, you’ll encounter adventures and joyful moments!)

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.

Quick Visualizations

I love quick visualizations because they work. They also teach development of the imagination and spiritual skills. These exercises are among my favorites because they are effective for almost everyone. (Fortunately, the current changes in energy make visualizations more effective.)


LOVE

  • Visualize the happiest, best moments of your life when you felt truly loved–when love lifted you into a higher place of being.
  • Visualize and experience how it feels when you receive love and acceptance from someone you love along with a wave of joy. (Think about how you receive love as well. In other words, define it.)
  • Visualize how it feels when you love your life, and life opens to embrace you. This opens to door to a great deal of love.

ABUNDANCE

  • Visualize more abundance in your accounts whenever you think of money. (See more money in your wallet or hand.)
  • Send light blue light to your bills to reduce them.
  • Smile and see money coming to you in a positive, supportive way.
  • By understanding and feeling the abundant nature of the universe, you alter your perception of the events in your life, which can positively affect the flow of prosperity in life.

CAREER

  • Visualize new people in your life who want to help with your career–and who know how to do it.
  • Visualize emails and phone calls from people who are interested in your work and respond positively.
  • See every answer (whether positive or negative) as a response from the universe. If it’s not the right reply, the answer is on the way.
  • Your career grows by attracting the right people and events that are in flow with the universe’s plan. By focusing on growth (or easy, positive change), you align with expansion, one of the principles of the universe.

HEALTH

  • Visualize the sensation of your body when it is healthy and happy. Send light to every molecule in your body as well as the spaces between the molecules.
  • Visualize having more energy and easily maintaining a better diet and exercise routine.
  • Imagine receiving 2x the rest when you sleep.
  • Imagine feeling happy and energized when you awaken.
  • The physical body loves it when our thoughts and emotions unite positively with it. It may take a few days or weeks to respond, but the body will absorb loving, positive thoughts and demonstrate them.
     

SPIRITUALITY


Obviously, these exercises depend on your spiritual connection. You envision love from the heart, and you create it in life by meditating and cultivating it. Through connection, you develop faith to practice and develop accurate visualization.

By working with the visualizations, you develop a habit of finding and aligning with a higher frequency.

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!
