Shifting Upward

Image by Tamara Phillips

Shifting upward into a higher state of being is both a desire and a choice. When we shift upward, we can move out of lower patterns and feelings. We can receive more light and allow life to move into a flow that provides answers and insights.

When you practice this exercise, you are aligning with your evolved self, the self of the future, who already knows how to make these changes. By simply listening, tuning in, and thinking about it, you’re moving into this state of consciousness.

7 Trends and Changes in Energy

1)   The universe is becoming vibrational. In the past, we said energy is everything, but the current trend is based on frequency. Frequency is sum of the vibrational quality of our energy field, and it affects everything. It’s a determining factor in outcome. (When we move into a higher vibration, the universe responds by lifting the situation into a higher frequency.)


2)   The Age of Aquarius asks for higher, balanced energy with an emphasis on the inner self. We can only give when our glass is half-full, and we must reserve energy to stay vital and fulfilled. In the Piscean Age, it was important to make sacrifices for the church and causes. If we gave away too much of our energy, the universe refilled it. At this point, it can days to revitalize our bodies and energy fields if we give away too much energy.


3) The best way to find answers is to listen to the heart
and follow the inner self. During the Piscean Age, we allowed the priests, leaders, and politics to determine our path. Now, we’re learning to listen to ourselves and find our inborn knowledge for enlightenment.

4)  Evolution is becoming increasingly important. It’s not about what happened to us—and old roles of victim and hero. It’s about finding the power within to energetically overcome and balance old karma. The lesson is about evolving, growing, and applying the experience to move more deeply into the inner self.

5) East meets West. The wisdom and knowledge of the Eastern and Western cultures is intermingling as we find balance within ourselves. The stillness and meditation practices of the Eastern philosophies is beautiful, but we also need the passionate action (and love) of the West.

6. We are beginning to define “good” as alignment with the inner self. There is a beautiful harmony that occurs in this connection. As more people awaken, the vibration will become more recognizable.

7. Self-care is becoming increasingly important as we continue to move through strange waves of energy, challenging astrological influences, and personal evolution. We simply have to rest and take care of ourselves to move through the energies of this time. Interestingly, a few hours of rest and a round or two of meditation can bring us back into the uplifting frequencies of higher collective consciousness.

Words from the Wolves About Manifestation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Few Techniques

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

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

A Super New Moon!

The New Moon appears on August 30 – just in time for the holiday weekend. It’s a Black Moon, occurring as the 2nd New Moon of the month, and it’s a Super Moon, which means it’s close to the earth. It’s also one of the best moons of the year.

Typically, the New Moon brings a time of the void when nature becomes quiet, and plants and seeds refuse to grow. Time is best spent in inner contemplation, reaching into the darkness (or unknown) for new information.

However, this Moon is different. It’s quite expansive with many trines with Uranus, the planet of quantum and/or sudden change. Uranus can also bring miracles, thoughts of the highest form, and amazing change when the planets form positive aspects with it. And they do!

Of course, it’s not just about the energy. It’s also how we use or don’t use it for growth. On this note, it’s wise to take time for inner reflection and ask for and/or visualize a big, positive shift.

In this New Moon chart, many planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto) are found in earth. All of the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) are in discerning Virgo, represented as the high priestess who holds the key to unseen mysteries. Virgo likes order and attention to detail, and discernment; it emphasizes health and hygiene. Virgo can also act in overly critical way. (If you feel critical, it will pass in a few days.)

However, the New Moon will not feel particularly heavy or earthy because Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) plays a huge role in the chart. Uranus can cause chaos or upset, or it can be sparkly and generous with a touch of genius—as it is in this chart.  When Uranus is at its best, it encourages discovery, adventure, and exploration of the new and unknown. There are many trines, composed of the inner planets, that ask us to jump into the future in a new way.

Mild challenges occur in aspects with Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion. None of the energies are particularly “bad”, but it’s good to have awareness about them. Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars square Jupiter.  Sun square Jupiter can bring opportunity, but there’s probably some aspect of the self that requires change. Fortunately, the aspect gives the power to push through the block. Moon square Jupiter heightens emotion and brings a tendency to exaggerate, and changeability. Venus square Jupiter heightens creativity and optimism. Mars square Jupiter bestows courage, enthusiasm, and energy.

Lovely trines are found with Saturn (karma, time). Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars trine (harmonious) Saturn. Trines with Saturn can aid with practical insights, applying our inner knowledge in a practical way, and developing our capacity for organization and management. These are helpful aspects, helping in adding stability to Uranus’ exciting, flashing energy.

Venus (love, relationships) opposes Neptune (mysticism, illusion), making it feel easy to project love into relationships that don’t work–or being taken in by the illusion of love. Mars (male, assertion) in opposition to Neptune can bring discouragement and/or a feeling of weakness about pursuits in life. Venus (love, relationships) trines Pluto (underworld, transformation) and adds depth to passion, love, and relationships.

All in all, it’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with the spiritual world and discover a way of expressing that inner knowledge on the physical plane. With many planets in earth, the message is to find a new way of living, thinking, and loving—and to create a life that matches it.

Staying Centered in a Changing World

It’s challenging to stay centered, peaceful, and balanced when the energies of the world change several times each day. Empaths and healers feel the world turn and surge with global events and strong emotions of mass consciousness. We also feel the people around us.

The “light” energy amplifies everything. The energy is challenging, and it’s important to tap into the inner self on a regular basis to find our way.  Otherwise, we lose touch with the inner self, which acts as a light on the path.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Part of the influx of light is known as the acceleration and amplification. It makes time seem to pass more quickly, and we feel everything more—if we continue our soul work. There is a good reason for it. When we feel ourselves and others more, it amplifies everything in our system—the positive and the negative. When our negative emotions and thoughts feel stronger, we want to change them. When our positive emotions become more intense, we seek this state. In other words, the strong currents of emotions and thought can lead to our higher self.
  2. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work.)
  3. Every few hours, there is a surge and ebb of global emotion and thought. If we know the surge or ebb of energy and emotion comes from the outer world, we can seek the solace of the inner self. We can focus on love, forgiveness, or simply see a better world. (Anything with a higher vibration will do.) Becoming conscious of the input of lower consciousness helps in understanding how our emotions and thoughts are influenced by others.
  4. We are touched by everyone’s energy. As we gain awareness of this, we can shield, alter our relationships, or choose to release specific people in life. Ultimately, we have to choose people who help lift our vibrations and/or look at others with compassion.
  5. Freedom comes from moderating our impulses and emotions by becoming incredibly aware of energy. Our true source of energy comes from the inner self and the universe. It’s necessary to cultivate it to have the strength and insight to navigate through life.

NOTE: If you are practicing meditation daily, you’ve probably noticed how moods and emotions alter throughout a given day. The lower moods appear, disappear, and return during the day, and it’s helpful to accept and observe them. You also learn that the inner self brings stability, grounding, and focus—as well as peace and love.

Transformation and Altered Perception: New Moon Forecast

After several weeks of experiencing Mercury retrograde and the weight of karma, the New Moon brings an opportunity for transformation on July 31 at 11:11 pm ET. With 5 planets in fire, there’s a push to move forward with our plans and dreams, which is a welcome sensation.

The month of July was a journey into our karmic patterns and beliefs. Wherever we felt stagnant, heavy, or relieved the past, those are the areas that we’ll have to continue to clear throughout the year. Fortunately, the planets are more favorable now; they are willing to carry us into a brighter future. But we have to continue our journey into the heart by clearing the past, moving into love, and following the light.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Venus (love, beauty), and Mars (assertion, male energy) are in Leo, the sign that rules the heart, passion, and drama. Leo can be generous or self-centered, depending on alignment with the inner self or ego. Fortunately, the 4 planets trine (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), and it can help with the pursuit of dreams and manifestation.

Mercury (communications, electronics) is direct on August 1, clearing communications, travel, and electronics. Mercury is in opposition with Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation). As a result, we continue to learn how our karma affects our communication and mental beliefs about the self and the world. (However, only 4 planets are in retrograde, which is a marvelous improvement. It’s difficult to focus and go forward when many planets are retrograde.) Mercury also trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), allowing for expression and understanding of divine, mystical energies.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Venus (love, partnerships) square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change.) Uranus tends to heighten erratic emotions and thoughts, which can lead to unpredictable (sometimes regrettable) behavior.

Venus (love, partnerships, beauty) squares (tension) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). Our frustrations about love or lack of perception of the beauty of life may seem profound–blocking us briefly from the realization of love. Fortunately, we can overcome this by knowing the feeling is only temporary and by looking deeply into our hearts.

Mars (male energy, assertion) trines (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion), and it helps in finding the energy, strength, and courage to move our lives in a new direction. Hopefully, it’s in the direction of spiritual growth.

Saturn (limitation, karma) trines Uranus (quantum field, change), and it’s a lovely aspect that encourages bold combination of the new and old worlds. Saturn squares Neptune (mysticism), which can dim our hopefulness, but there are many other uplifting aspects in the chart. Saturn conjunct (close to) Pluto, awakening our desire to achieve and grasp power. Pluto is an outer planet, and this can refer to world or the self.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Venus (love) and Mars (assertion) trine Chiron, the wounded healer, creating a big opportunity for healing as we move into more passionate quests than clearing pasts and feeling immobile from many retrograde planets.

Tips:

  1. It’s lovely to experience a phase of forward movement. The planets provide passion and courage; the placement of Jupiter (good fortune) encourages our journey.
  2. It’s easy to feel passionate and overreact. Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars square Uranus, which promotes erratic and sudden changes of feelings and thoughts. Stay calm and think it through.
  3. Mercury is direct, which is wonderful for clear thought and communicating with others. It also helps with receiving information from the Higher Mind.
  4. Our karmic period is on hiatus, but it will repeat throughout the year. Take time to work on new perceptions of life events, lower thoughts and emotions about the self, and practice aligning with the heart.
  5. Enjoy the period of light and reflect on healing and the process of forgiving while substituting new thoughts and feelings for old ones. Focus on who you truly want to become.

Universal Energies

The universe wants you. It wants your full attention, which comes when you focus on light. It wants the full connection that takes place when your inner self and universal consciousness merge. It longs to speak to you of your beauty, strengths, and unrecognized gifts.

Carrying you through life and expanding your consciousness is its greatest desire. From this place, you open to the beauty of the planet, recognition of your direction becomes profound, and the missing answers appear. Through the universe’s eyes, you find your divinity, speak from your heart, and travel on the road of perception.

You find freedom from the past, relief from worries about the future, and you become completely present – and find peace in the present moment.

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.
