An Alternative Method of Peace

Barbara Marciniak said, “You must learn to end the wars in your world by ending them in your mind.”  It feels logical to proceed by embracing peace within our mind and heart. Thought and emotion are known to impact the energetic field, and they are measurable in quantum science. (Everyone has been affected positively and negatively by another person’s emotions or thoughts.)

Peace is a state of mind, which occurs within the stillness of the inner self. It is a higher frequency—a set of vibrations emitted by the inner self.  In general, it is accompanied by a set of feelings, sensations, and a specific visual. When we connect with the inner self, there is an absence of conflicting thought. It is the state associated with stillness—an alignment with the heart.

In this space of connection, we encounter universal concepts such as peace, love, harmony, and joy. In general, the concepts are similar for everyone, but we color them with individual sensations and visualizations. From a place of stillness, it is possible to project a personal vision of peace into the world around us.

In alchemy, it’s said that every particle of matter is composed of light. Matter responds to higher frequencies and changes its shape. (This is seen in cymatics as well as Masaru Emoto’s work with water.) At any rate, mind over matter has been demonstrated many times.

Harmonious vibrations—which are free from duality—can affect physical matter. These vibrations could be described as higher frequencies, which are generated and received by people who are capable of perceiving and projecting them. When a “higher” visualization or feeling is received and repeated throughout many energy field, it is naturally amplified. When many of us focus on our personal sensation of peace repeatedly, it eventually affects the overall energy—as well as the conceivable future.

Mahatma Ghandi thought a concept or movement was much more powerful when it promoted what it stood for rather than fighting against what it opposed. It is a non-dualistic view, based on a simple focus on a higher concept. (When we are connected to our inner self, there is no duality—only wholeness, which provides sensations, which flow from this place of being. By projecting those thoughts and feelings strongly, we affect the matter or physical world around us.)

Coming from a place of wholeness does not mean closing our eyes to the darkness in the world. But it does involve limiting judgement and refraining from deep discussions about wrongness on earth. That’s because negative people and places thrive on negative energy. It’s the best way of creating more of what we don’t want.

The Age of Aquarius focuses on group endeavors, collective consciousness, higher thought, and the quantum field. Higher thought comes when the mind is connected with the heart. It’s easy to identify those thoughts because they are clear, align with universal concepts, and often bring a feeling of softness and relief. More importantly, it’s possible to project those thoughts to others and to the world-at-large. It’s how the quantum field operates.

Tips:

  • Meditating on a personal feeling of peace is easier than seeing peace for the world. From place of connection, it is easily expanded and sent to others as well as geographical locations.
  • When we identify a strong sensation of peace for ourselves, we automatically vibrate it outward. (Change begins within personal world.)
  • It’s helpful to choose a color, symbol, or identify a specific energy as peace. The soul often reads energy in symbols. It can be sent to others.
  • Spend 5 or 10 minutes each day in meditation. In this place, there is no movement between polarities. There is only love and peace. Everyone can contribute to the effort in this way.
  • Avoid television, violence, and lower vibrations. Try to keep discussions focused on the positive and good changes within the world. (When something causes a strong upset or emotion, try Ho’oponopono or seeing the opposite of the situation.)
  • Work on eliminating personal judgement, particularly of friends, co-workers, and loved ones. It’s better to see the “good” in them and accept their place of being. And it’s more positive to work on personal peace. (Judgement causes movement between the higher and lower self.)
  • Create a personal vision of peace in the future and dwell on it occasionally.
  • With all metaphysical activity, we have to operate partially on faith while believing in the universe and our power to bring about change.

New Moon Forecast: Pressure and Change

Painting by Josephine Walls

 

Lately, the astrological forecasts are much like the weather, moving between gray, stormy days and spring like weather with streaming sunlight. The New Moon forecast resembles a cloudy day when it’s important to remind ourselves that life and light are already on the way.

The New Moon appears on Friday, Jan 27.  The overall chart is weighted by water (emotion) and air (thought.) Our power comes from aligning emotion and thought in a positive sense, and it can feel daunting when experiencing pressure from many squares (tension.) It’s possible to achieve this state by lifting our thoughts into a higher sphere while realistically viewing and feeling our problems—and seeking a solution on a higher level. (Fortunately, the chart provides raw material for this point of view.)

The Sun (life) and Moon (emotions, inner life) are in Aquarius, the ruler of the New Age. Aquarius bestows rapid, clear thought, independence, humanitarian efforts and the desire to act as an individual. Aquarians are often humanitarians and strive to improve the world at large. (Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which represents the quantum field.) By aligning with the inner self, we can raise our “vision” above the fray and find solutions through the higher mind.

Mercury (communications, thought) is placed in Capricorn, a practical, ambitious earth sign. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Pluto (underworld, resources, power), exhibited on a worldly level through the current power plays in the United States. It’s also an useful conjunction when applied for grounding and creating improvement in our personal world. (It affects all forms of communication such as internet, media, writing, and social media as well as physical resources.)

Mercury (communication) squares Jupiter (good fortune), and Jupiter squares Pluto (underworld, transformation, power), indicating that too much emphasis on finances, power, and ego-related growth conflict with the flow of Jupiter in Libra’s balanced approach to expansion and good fortune.

Venus is exalted in Pisces, meaning it is easy to flow into a wave of universal love. When Venus (love, feminine beauty) is exalted, we can expand our ability to love. (It’s also a good time for art, improving our appearance and/or home.) Venus conjuncts (close to) Mars (male, assertion) in Pisces, bringing about balance between the two sides of the self.

Mars sits in Pisces, which activates old patterns of resentment, hidden feelings, and strong emotions. Both Venus and Mars are in Pisces, a water sign, which elicits emotion. It’s a more difficult placement for Mars as it rules action and masculine energy. Both Venus and Mars conjunct (close to) Chiron, and this intensifies the need for release and inner healing.

Venus squares Saturn, which can reveal weaknesses and illusions about love with the opposite sex. It can also show the wounded part of the self as associated with relationships. (Venus loves pleasure, and Saturn likes austerity, so it can bring a feeling of melancholy—or mixed feelings.) Like many New Age dilemmas, the answer lies in finding greater fulfillment with the inner self.

Mars squares Saturn, and this can bring up issues around authoritarian figures—or childhood patterns about the parents, teachers, etc.  Specific areas, depending on individual charts, may feel blocked, and progress may seem slow. With Saturn (time, karma), the lesson is usually mitigated by focusing on service and perseverance.

With Venus and Mars square Saturn, there may be a slightly “depressed” feeling throughout the weekend. It’s helpful to place our energy on acts that reflect the inner self and benefit others. Fortunately, these squares are short-lived. (Don’t give up!)

Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra is in opposition to Uranus (new age, sudden change), meaning our innovative plans may not move in the direction of personal expansion. It’s important to take time to contemplate balance and harmony before moving into our newest ideas and thoughts. Jupiter also squares Pluto (underworld, transformation), which indicates revelations in our personal/outer world that may not align with our personal expansion. (Again, it’s temporary.)

Saturn (karma, limitation) trines (harmonious energy) Uranus, and it’s the only strong trine in the chart. It shows the possibility of overcoming karma by moving into the resonance of the quantum field. When we vibrate at a higher rate, we can transcend the limitations of the physical world.

T-square

Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a cardinal T-square, exaggerating the square between Uranus and Pluto, which has essentially changed the world in the past five years. Add Jupiter (good fortune) to the mix, and the energy flows between Uranus, which is always creating new events and insights for growth, Pluto and the dark underworld, and Jupiter, which controls the flow of good fortune and expansion.

Summary

Overall, it’s not an easy chart. There are many squares, which form tension between two or more energies. Our experience of the tension relates to our personal and outer world.

On the positive, Sun/Moon in Aquarius (new age thought), Venus in Pisces (exalted emotion), and Jupiter in Libra (justice, beauty, and balance) offer the opportunity for transformational thought. Venus is exalted in Pisces, emphasizing the capacity to love the self, others, and life. Saturn trine Uranus gives innovative consciousness to think our way out of patterns and limitations.

There is balance between the male and female side of the self (Venus and Mars conjunct.) Venus and Mars provide the opportunity for healing limiting emotional patters with their conjunction to Chiron (the wounded healer.) These conjunctions may offer a chance to move into a space of feeling deserving, opening to a wider spectrum of love, and leaving the past behind—once and for all.

If we feel frustrated, limited, or slightly depressed, it will pass. And the energy is useful if we remember the chart provides the needed tools for humanitarian insights, healing the self, and helping others.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s work

Sun is on 9 Aquarius, A Flag is Seen Turning into an Eagle. A flag symbolizes a nation, and an eagle is the physical representation of the flag. The feelings of the spirit of the nation are transformed into physical form of that ideal. The symbol can vary from listening to the inner self and acting upon it in physical life to taking action on national ideals as shown by last weekend’s Women’s March.

Moon sits on 2 Aquarius, An Unexpected Thunderstorm. In the world, there are many sudden confrontations, the agitation of politics and mass consciousness, and the quick turning of the energy from dark to light. Thunderstorms pass quickly, and they are easily dealt with if we take precautions and refuse to give into fear. It’s also important to remember that rainbows and beautiful sunlight follow thunderstorms.

Mercury is placed at 15 Capricorn, In a Children’s Hospital, The Children’s Ward Is Filled with Toys. Toys represent the joy of the imagination and the excitement of play. . It depicts the need to express caring for others, who are sick or removed from wholeness. Obviously, the toys are present because of the concern and generosity of others.

Venus is on 24 Pisces, The Tiny Island Seems Lost in the Broad Ocean, but Its Happy Inhabitants Have Created a World All Their Own. This symbol feels perfect for the changes in the word—at least with members of the global spiritual community. When we move into love and light, we create a change that will eventually come into being in the physical world. And we rejoice at the connection with the inner self and the universe.

Mars sits on 30 Pisces, A Majestic Rock Formation Resembling A Face is Idealized by a Boy Who Takes It as His Ideal of Greatness, As He Grows Up, He Begins to Look Like It. When we focus on an ideal of greatness, we actually absorb those qualities. If we enact the qualities in physical life—and continually focus and relate to the ideal, we create those qualities in our personal life.

Last Quarter Moon: Embrace Change, Clear Emotion

 

At the moment, the skies remain gray, but the forecast offers space for breakthroughs, healing, and inner understanding. As the moon slowly ebbs, it extends a time for creating change through self-reflection and sharing with others. If we truly want to move through old wounds to the clarity of light, it’s possible.

Truthfully, we are moving into an unknown frontier where energy behaves differently, and the world sometimes feels chaotic. Much of the impetus of the planets is about vibrating above the worldly roar by taking action discerned from the inner space of stillness. The earlier “push” of moving forward with all planets direct remains, but it requires more reflection and inspired action.

The chart is weighted by water (emotion) with Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron in Pisces, the sign of the past age. The Sun sits in Aquarius, heralding rapid communications, spiritual growth, and the work of individuals within a group. It’s an air sign, which rules the sphere of thought.

Mercury is in Capricorn, an earth sign ruling finances, success in the material world, and practical aspects of life. Mercury rules the mind and communication. Both thought and communication can feel a bit dense, and it can take longer to transmit a message through media and/or the mind.

Venus (feminine, earthly pleasures) and Mars (male energy, assertion) are conjunct or closely placed in Pisces, which intensifies both planets—and in this case, emotions (water.) Venus and Mars in Pisces can bring about harmony between the masculine/feminine within the self.

Venus also conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which aids in aligning with the beauty in the world. Together, Venus and Neptune reveal the beauty and softness of life. This aspect can give the illusion that it’s perfectly correct to float through life—and not take action. (This is the illusory quality of Neptune in combination with the beauty of Venus.) On the positive, they support mystical insights and can strengthen intuition.

Mars in Pisces can bring up repressed feelings, old grudges and victimhood. It squares Saturn (karma, limitation), meaning it’s easy to feel the pain of the past and forget that life is about gaining from the lessons of karma, surrendering unrealistic beliefs, and moving into the quantum field.

Fortunately, Venus and Mars are conjunct (close to) Chiron with all signs placed in Pisces. Chiron, the wounded healer, helps us to become strong in overcoming the wounds of the past. Perhaps, it’s easier to think of “old” pain as a karmic script, which we are outgrowing with the passage of time in the Aquarian Age.

Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a T-square, which exerts pressure on the world. It brings a feeling of tension in the areas of good fortune, the quantum field/sudden change, and the hidden qualities of the underworld. It’s interesting because the energy comes and goes; it’s not consistent.

Jupiter (good fortune) squares (think tension) Pluto in Capricorn. Our ideals of balance, harmony, and good fortune will likely become rewritten by Pluto’s revelations from the underworld. It’s not a bad event, but it sometimes involves releasing our “happy” vision of the life and seeing through more realistic eyes. Jupiter also opposes Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and the aspect indicates our vision of happiness may need adjustment as we move more deeply into the Quantum Field. (It could simply involve stretching our vision to include miracles, rapid positive happenings, etc.)

Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius trines Uranus, which points to the possibility of creating a new structure in the mind, body, or life to overcome our limitations and move into a new zone of life. Saturn also squares Chiron (wounded healer), meaning our beliefs about the past and past pain must be mitigated to receive healing from Chiron’s influence.

Uranus is square Pluto in the influential aspect which has altered and changed so much of the world. For many, it’s meant stronger dedication to spiritual principles, deeper awakening, and devotion to the light.

In short, it’s important to move through the dreaminess and take real action, but action has to come from the heart and an inner desire for expansion. If/when the past comes into play, it’s possible to call on the light and surrender old patterns and thoughts for true healing.

We will definitely change our view of the inner/outer world in the coming months. The task may move more quickly if we consider the qualities of the soul and the universe—and imagine what life might become with more miracles and light. After all, it’s the substance of the quantum field.

7 Tips on Manifestation

 

Manifestation becomes increasingly important as we move into the New Age. Everyone is already manifesting their life, and life opens and expands when we consciously create by focusing on the images of our heart and inner self—as opposed to reflecting and amplifying the imagery of the people around us, the media, and mass consciousness. (Additionally, karma is mitigated as we “erase” old patterns and move into a higher space of being.)

  1. Manifestation responds to our light level. When we connect with all of our heart and from a place of love and light, the universe answers. It requires a commitment of the self to create a dream. (All dreams and desires should aid ourselves and the world by raising the frequency of the world around us.)
  2. Desiring greater abundance, happiness, peace, and success come for the soul. The inner self longs for expansion and expression; it thrives on positive change. By understanding the placement of the desire as an expression of the inner self, it can be easier to commit to the practical aspects of the work, which include meditation, visualization, and devotion—and many small changes in physical world.
  3. Awakening heightens the desire to manifest. It opens awareness to the negative inner dialog and conflicting emotions, which repress all deep desires. It gives access to the heart where love and dreams abide. The heart opens and flourishes, expressing greater love as the process ensues.
  4. The process is quickened by “experiencing” the desire. We substitute the domain of the desire for the current experiences of life. For example, we might see ourselves in a large, beautiful home while washing dishes or looking in our closet. We might imagine perfect health when it’s difficult to complete specific exercises or complete a long walk. We can see great abundance when viewing our bank account.
  5. Our overall frequency is heightened by the “work”. If we turn to the universe for help, open our hearts, and see a better reality, we tune into a higher broadcast of energy that eventually supersedes our current experience of life.
  6. Believe in the power of the universe to amplify and create desires. Communicate and cooperate by seeing the manifestation in great detail, accompanied by happy, calm emotions. (Everything in the physical world has a specific appearance, weight/height, density, and sensation. Add this to the overall equation.)
  7. Keep the silence. Desires manifest more quickly when we remain quiet. Other people affect our desires with their emotions and thoughts, which can limit their manifestation. (This practice teaches thinking before speaking, which is an important “human” lesson.)

Planetary Change: Translating Emotion into Light

7 Easy Ways to Move Through The Shift

mandela_ellenvaman

 

While many people remain unaware of the shift, awakened individuals experience heightened intuition and emotion, which are qualities of the inner self. Along with this quickening, there is a strong desire for peace and harmony.

Here are a few tips to make navigation a bit easier.

  1. Try working from the inner self. Stop every few hours and ask for the presence of the inner self. (On a practical level, we can ask for information about the most essential aspects of the day. This can include practical, physical steps. While it may seem like a longer list, following the guidance of the inner self brings a gentle, sustaining flow.)
  2. Focus on the heart space. Send love to the self and others. Send love to problems and happy situations. Unconditional love raises everything into a higher frequency and can bring unexpected solutions.
  3. Be patient. It takes time to learn how to use intuition accurately. It takes energy to stay balanced in the New Age. And it requires courage to remain consistently optimistic while holding a vision of a better life and world.
  4. Take time to rest and nurture the self. The energy oscillates continually, and it’s important to take small breaks throughout the day. When the body rests, it operates more smoothly, and we feel less of the currents of mass consciousness and interruptions in the magnetic field. (When we’re tired, it’s helpful to focus on how it feels when we are energized and aligned.)
  5. Center often and focus on the inner self. From this place, see solutions. Imagine happier outcomes and focus on the positive. (This practice raises our vibrations.)
  6. Enjoy nature. Take walks or sit in the sun. Feel the motion of the physical world and notice the beauty. Become full of beauty and light.
  7. Spend a few moments each day and meditate on how peace and harmony feel. Imagine waves of peace, balance, and harmony coming into the inner self. (Refrain from speaking negatively about events or people in the outer world when possible. Sharing truth is fine, but try for a neutral position.)

Full Moon Forecast

newsletter_moon

 

The Full Moon appears on Thurs, Jan 12 with Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Cancer. Moon in Cancer rules the fourth house or the home; it represents the Mother, the sea, and aspects of water (emotion.) Additionally, there is an emphasis on the number, 23, with Sun, Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn are placed at 23 degrees. 23 is a mystical number, sometimes used in occult methodology—or it can symbolize help from ascended masters and success with desires of the heart.

All of the planets are direct until early February, creating ease for forward motion. The entire chart is a combination of insightful and beneficial aspects—and difficult ones such as a Grand Square and/or the continuation of the Uranus/Pluto square, which are only 3 degrees apart. On the positive, the Full Moon represents light, heightened energy, and fruition of positive events. (It’s easier to focus strongly on positive outcomes when the moon is full.)

The overall chart is heavily weighted with water with Moon in Cancer and Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron placed in Pisces. Only Jupiter (good fortune) is placed in air, making it necessary to find our way through our spiritual alignment while clearing emotions and leaning into love.

Sun and Moon square Jupiter (good fortune), creating tension between the desire for success and emotions ruling the home and close relationships. They also square Uranus, enlarging the possibility of sudden or radical change—or misreading intuitive leads. Overall, it’s important to reflect on the inner self before taking action. (Is the action in the best and highest good for all concerned?)

Fortunately, Mercury (thought, communication) is conjunct (close to) Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius, and this opens our thoughts to a wider, philosophical horizon. Mercury in Sagittarius also trines (harmonious) Uranus, which can lend inspired and/or brilliant thought with new applications, ideas, and methods of moving through life. (It softens the Sun/Moon squares with Uranus.)

Sun (life) in Capricorn sextiles Mars (male, assertion); Moon (emotions, inner life) trines Mars in Pisces. (Mars in a water sign can bring up resentments, but it can also increase the possibility of moving into the “sea” of love.) Mars squares Saturn (time, karma), and it’s important to use the will to move forward. Mars also conjuncts Neptune, emphasizing the possibility of confusing spiritual truth with illusion. Mars also conjuncts Chiron (wounded healer).

Venus (beauty, feminine energy)  conjuncts (close to) Mars (male energy) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it can create a very beautiful view of life. It accentuates our understanding and perception of the beauty in life.  It’s helpful with artistic creations—and inner vision in external world.

Mars (assertion, male energy) in Pisces squares Saturn (limitation, karma, time) in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces denotes emotional energies of the past age—and past lives—that require clearing before moving into a more philosophical structure. Mars also conjuncts (close to) Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. The conjunction with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) can lift our feelings into a spiritual state of being and/or bring confusion about the cause of inner feelings. If we apply the Mars/Chiron energy correctly, it can lead to more peaceful emotions and inner healing.

Jupiter (good fortune) opposes Uranus (quantum field, new age) and squares Pluto (underworld, will). Our ideas and beliefs about good fortune may suddenly change, expand, or take a new direction with the Jupiter/Uranus opposition. We may also have to use our will and inner power to revitalize and alter our lives (Jupiter square Pluto). Also, Saturn (time, limitation) trines Uranus, making it possible to find new structures for a better life in the early stages of the New Age.

Cardinal Grand Square

The cardinal Grand Cross illustrates pressure between Sun/Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. All of these planets square one another at 90 degree intervals, exerting stress in several different direction. For example, Moon in Cancer (home life, the feminine) is impacted by Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus (sudden change.) The Uranus/Pluto square, which impacts a great deal on its own, is exacerbated by the Grand Square.

Beneficial Aspects

Venus (beauty, worldly possessions) conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion.) This aspect opens us to the esoteric and physical beauty of the world.

Mercury Trines Uranus. It’s a harmonious aspect, which can lead to ingenious thinking, a break through approach, and instantaneous solutions. Uranus rules awakening and the quantum field. Mercury rules thought.

Saturn trines Uranus. Saturn is time and limitation. Uranus is spiritual awakening. By transcending habits of the past and using our strength/discipline in life, we can create a new structure, based more closely on the tenets of the New Age and the inner self.

Sun and Pluto are conjunct (close together.) Sun is life; Pluto is hidden truths and regeneration–and rules the will. It’s possible to use our will to regenerate and renew aspects of life.

Tips:

  • The chart is a bit like the world at this current point in time. The chart is filled with opportunities, moments of possible genius, and a good bit of tension. Numerous aspects (planetary alignments) move energy in different directions
  • Uranus plays a strong role in this chart, prompting sudden changes and realizations. It also continues to reveal illusion with emphasis on the Uranus/Pluto square.
  • There are many good and positive aspects in the chart, which soften the tension of the Grand Square. It’s helpful to centered and focused on opportunities.
  • The Sun conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, giving the power of tremendous will and the opportunity for rejuvenation.
  • With a Full Moon and all planets direct, take action on plans. The energies will support you.

Sabian Symbols (based on Lynda Hill, The Sabian Oracle)

Sun is on 23 Capricorn, “A Soldier Receiving Two Awards for Bravery in Combat.” The symbol suggests an individual moving through some type of struggle and/or battle—and receiving recognition for their efforts. It speaks of compensation and rewards for inner/outer efforts.

Moon is on 23 Cancer, “The Meeting of a Study Group or Literary Society.” The imagery represents a gathering to discuss underlying meanings of concepts, words, and presentations of thoughts. The challenge lies in arriving at the correct interpretation.

Mercury is placed on 30 Sagittarius, “The Pope Blessing the Faithful.” The symbol speaks of a person or being with spiritual awareness and love who bestows blessings on others. It emphasizes the need for spirituality in life as well as the enlightening of the collective.

Venus sits on 10 Pisces, “An Aviator in the Clouds.” It’s a perfect symbol for Venus conjunct Neptune (mysticism, illusion.) The Aviator can lift us high above life into the clouds, but a flight through the clouds can also raise our consciousness, leading to new realizations.

Mars is on 19 Pisces, “A Master Instructing his Disciple.” This symbol is very appropriate with Mars’ placement. The Master could symbolize the inner self, and the Discipline, our awareness. We can use our energy to respond and follow our inner insights or allow our energy to lead us into lower emotion and/or distraction.

Jupiter is on 23 Libra, “Chanticleer’s Voice Heralds the Rising Sun with Enthusiastic Tones.” With Jupiter symbolizing good fortune, the symbol could refer to the dawning of a New Age—and the inherent possibility, which lies within that paradigm.

Trends of 2017

While it’s possible to “pick” up on great deal in the outer and invisible world, predictions and explanations tend to become misleading because they are amplified/diminished by our beliefs. Instead of  moving into the possibilities and probabilities of the year, it’s simpler to look at energetic trends.

The presentation of trends allows the opportunity to best direct our energy for personal growth. (Feel free to comment and share thoughts on this post.)

  1. Patience. Many have felt the scope of expansion offered by awakening. We know the world can change and move in a positive direction. We understand the probability of emergent new forms of energy, useful in healing, cleaning the environment, and free energy for cars, electricity, etc. We are working with patience while waiting for world change. We visualize, learn to regroup and alter the pattern of our words—and create room for the decision to move into awakening or stay in the same place.
  2. Transition. Part of the big transition involves letting go of who we think are while evolving into our “true” identity. This includes memories, lineage, personal preferences, and how we “think” we operate in life. It involves surrendering our “outer” identity as we become more of the inner self. It can be as simple as giving up toxic (lower) energy people to completely rebuilding our lives. (We’ll see change in the structure of the outer world as well.)
  3. A linear division. The line of division between light/dark and awake/sleeping is becoming more apparent. At this point, the delineation is becoming more apparent as the veil of illusion continues to thin. (Many revelations will be presented on a global and personal level. Expect people to reveal themselves.) For those who are awake, powers of discernment will increase.
  4. Increased light and personal power. As the veil thins, we’ll become more aware of how our personal and global connections affect the world. Our intentions, thoughts, and emotions will become more powerful. (Initially, it will be a two-edged sword because we will discover both negative and positive directives from the self and the world at large.)
  5. Increased amplification and acceleration. As we awaken, increased intuition will amplify our feelings and thoughts, Time will seem to move more quickly unless we actively slow it down through interaction with nature and meditation. The “waves” of energy surrounding the earth move much quickly, and they can affect our consciousness. (The term “waves” extends to mass consciousness, the people in our lives, and higher collective consciousness. Grounding and balance help a great deal with this.)
  6. More understanding of love. In the past, love meant intense passion, religious fervor, and a directive to move into love and light regardless of the circumstances. This view fostered intense (not always positive) relationships, a martyred vision of religion, and imbalance. “Real” universal love holds a much higher vibration. It illustrates the truth with compassion. It demands boundaries, truth, balance, and expansion. Universal love offers the opportunity to vibrate above lower energies—and to stay in the heart space.
  7. Perception of Energy. Big changes will occur in the perception of energy for those who are awake. Obviously, everything is energy, but learning how to apply, use, and align with energy correctly is an entirely different task. It’s super important to let go of people, things, and events that lower our energy and focus on the development of energy and positivity. (In many ways, it’s like a child outgrowing their clothes. Our lives may simply not fit in the same way.)
  8. New energies for those who are open. The new energies will likely provide tools for healing, greater understanding and clearing of past lives (and their influence), the ability to use intention as a greater directive for move thought life, and more profound understanding of the self—and cosmic law.
  9. Increased ability to manifest. Manifestation will become easier as the dark/light forces separate, and we move out of the old earth paradigm. For those in the light, it will involve manifesting aspects of the soul, hidden talents, and aspects of life, which are hidden in the heart.
  10. Increased connection. We will become more connected through electronics, spiritual energy, and likes/dislikes. It actually offers the opportunity to discover our personal alignment and how it affects our energy. On a higher level, the spiritual community may learn a great deal about group manifestation. (Much of the world appears as it does because of our thoughts. Awakened individuals will become aware of the importance of their thoughts and dreams.)
