Learning About the Inner Self

 

  1. You’re more powerful than you think. Your feelings and thoughts affect the space and people around you. When you consciously direct your thoughts in a positive way, it changes the flow of the events. The best way to create conscious change is through the inner self and connection with the universe.
  2. You create a better future by believing in your power to do so. The potential becomes greater when you practice visualization and gain awareness of your thoughts and feelings. By seeing your inner world with a different light, you learn how to envision for the outer world. When many people hold a positive vision for the outer world, it’s possible to create amazing change.
  3. When you experience a sense of well being and soft happiness, it helps everyone around you. Everyone is drawn to this type of energy field. Practice recalling memories of feeling well, happy, and relaxed. You automatically pull these emotions into the future by focusing on them. (Focusing involves concentration and energy. When you place your energy on a particular point of consciousness, it expands.)
  4. A part of you is always connected. You may not always feel your connection, but it’s always there. You can meditate more, ask for help, call on your guides or angels, and recall feeling of inner connection. If you stay with your practices, you’ll find your inner self. (Everyone moves in and out of this space in a given day.)
  5. Many people believe a very special group of people were called here for the group awakening. If you are awakening, you probably have special talents and gifts. (It’s helpful to know you can focus on your inner light and help others—regardless of your livelihood or life direction.) Everyone in this group works with personal problems, which likely involve clearing global karma or holding light for others. Your small efforts help far more than you think, and your light counts a great deal.

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.)

Super Wolf Moon and Lunar Eclipse

 

The first Full Moon of the year is known as the Wolf Moon throughout Europe, Japan, and indigenous cultures where the wolf is celebrated for giving birth to the moon. The Full Moon appears on January 21 just after midnight, and it is preceded by a powerful lunar eclipse. It’s a super moon, meaning the moon is very close to the earth, which intensifies its energy. This Full Moon brings both positive and challenging energies. All of the planets are direct, which gives power and force to both action and desire. However, several planets aspect Uranus—the planet that’s famous for causing erratic, sudden action.

Eclipses are about resetting our energy, preferably at a higher level. A lunar eclipse can involve looking at our shadow self before creating imagery of a higher life. An eclipse can help by moving our energy into form. (The eclipse begins on January 20 at 9:36 pm ET and ends at 2:48 am on Jan 21.)

Sun is in Aquarius, an air sign symbolized by the water bearer. Aquarius rules the mind, group endeavors, and awakening. It can also have strongly fixed opinions or act overly idealistic. The Sun (life) conjuncts (close to) Mercury, making the higher mind more accessible. Sun conjuncts Pluto, which represents the underworld and transmutation. It can help in discovering patterns, moving through blocks, or transmuting aspects of life into a higher form.

Moon is placed in Leo, the fiery sign of the lion. An interesting equation appears throughout the chart as the balance between the individual and society at large and the personal desires of the heart and unconditional cosmic love/mysticism. (The answer appears to lie somewhere in between as a blending of opposite qualities. This energy is found throughout the chart.)

The Moon (moods, emotions) opposes Mercury (communications), and this aspect can cause emotions to override positive and meaningful communication. (Think of the moon changing vastly over a period of a few days. Our emotions may feel the same, making clarity of thought more difficult.) The Moon also squares Uranus, causing emotions to react strongly and suddenly. It’s important to remember emotions are not always real. Sometimes, they are habitual responses to specific events in life, but they are overcome by creating a new response or thought.

Mercury (thought, communication) in Capricorn yields slow and methodical thought. Mercury squares Uranus, which yields rapid thoughts that may be erratic and/or profound. Mercury conjuncts (close) to Pluto, and the aspect deepens the mind. It’s a particularly good time for research or observing the self.

With Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Uranus, energy will be processed in an erratic or unusual way. We may feel impulsive, have brilliant thoughts, and/or feel overwhelmed by thoughts and emotions. Uncertain events or news may occur, but it’s important to stay calm and focused. (Honestly, we all mediate to work through this type of energy, and meditation is helpful with this chart.)

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Sagittarius, which encourages passion and love. It can also incite our love for life. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars (male energy assertion), and this brings harmony between the sexes and the male/female aspects of the self. Venus conjuncts (close to) Jupiter, increasing good luck and expansion through love and social activities. The aspect also heightens peace and harmony. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). It can bring disillusionment and idealism—or move us into the idealistic and lovely side of Neptune, which bestows beautiful dreams, artistic endeavors, and carries us into the mystic.

Mars (male energy, assertion) is wonderfully placed in Aries, and this placement aids with action, passion, and heart-felt endeavors. Mars trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune). If we act on our passion, life is likely to reward us with expansion and goodness. However, Mars squares Saturn (almost exactly), and it can incite anger or violence. Mars also squares Pluto, and this position increases our drive and desire to move forward in life. (If the desire comes from the heart – and is beneficial to “all” – go ahead. If it’s not, reexamine the desire because the aspect can cause conflict, jealousy, and arguments.)

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is well placed in Sagittarius where it loves to expand the good in life including travels, long journeys, and spiritual desires. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism). It’s an interesting square as Jupiter represents the path of personal good and growth, and Neptune is about the astral sea of energy that can connect us to unconditional love and the divine. (Squares ask for resolution of feelings and direction in life. And this square may ask us to discern how our personal desires for goodness and happiness merge with the cosmic flow.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) remains in Capricorn, an earth sign. Uranus (sudden change, awakening) squares Pluto, bringing old issues and darkness to the surface before moving back into Taurus on March 6.

Moon (emotions) and North Node (spiritual aspiration) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) sextile (positive but weak aspect) Chiron. By moving through the issues, brought to the surface by Uranus, we may move into deep and powerful healing.

Notes:

  • Throughout the chart, there is a push/pull of energies, particularly between individual/group energies and personal higher aspirations and the wider scope universal energies. We’re learning how our individual beliefs, desires, and feelings fit into the universal plan. (It’s probably slightly different for everyone.)
  • The chart is an expression of fire and water with a few planets in earth and one planet placed in air. It tends to amplify emotion and passion while the mind may feel cloudy or lack clarity.
  • There is a great deal of emphasis on love and the heart with Moon (emotions) in Leo and Venus (love) in Sagittarius. Mars (male, assertion) in Aries gives passion and intent. The chart seems to hint at the power of following the heart.
  • The many squares found throughout the chart cause tension between different aspects of the self and life. In particular, Uranus’ squares cause erratic feelings—and even sudden change. Remember to breathe and focus on the heart. (There’s also a higher spiritual side of Uranus that often straightens difficulties in a marvelous way.)
  • There are both positive and difficult aspects in the chart. Eclipses bring change. Focus on the heart and create desired change from this place. All of the planets are direct and can help with this endeavor.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun is on Aquarius 1, “An Old Adobe Mission” refers to priests who settled missions in California. The idea of sharing spiritual concepts is lovely but not when it causes persecution. There’s a big difference between spiritual truth and beliefs founded on the strict guidelines of religion. Avoid didactic behavior.

Moon is placed on Leo 2, “An Epidemic of Mumps” seems to symbolize the quality of contagious diseases and/or thoughts. Illness is said to come from lower vibrations, and both higher and lower vibrations are contagious. We tap into the energies and feelings of others. (It’s important to choose what we want to feel.)

Mercury sits on Capricorn 26, “A Nature Spirit Dancing in the Mist of a Waterfall”. This symbol asks us to move more deeply into our intuition and connection with nature. It may also refer to experiencing a deeper connection with the natural world.  It may be part of the answer of navigating the eclipse energies.

Venus is on Sagittarius 15, “The Ground Hog Looking for its Shadow on Ground Hog Day” refers to the importance of looking for signs to find our path into the future. We all have a sense of the future, which can be confirmed or negated by signs. The universe sends signs when we ask for guidance.

Mars is placed on Aries 14, “A Serpent Coiling near a Man and Woman”, referring to temptation, fear, or jealousy. (This symbol seems particularly accurate with Mars’ alignment with Saturn and Pluto.) Snakes also symbolize healing, universal knowledge, and the balance between the sides of the self. It’s up to us to choose the dark or enlightened presence of the snake. (Snakes also refer to the kundalini current in the spine.)

Jupiter is on Sagittarius 16, “Sea Gulls Fly Around a Ship Looking for Food”, and it indicates dependence or co-dependence. It asks for wariness with people who want favors or gifts from us. It can also denote the importance of becoming independent and learning to care for ourselves.

Mastering Emotion

Image by Amanda Clark

Emotion is one of the tests of mastery, Represented by water, emotion moves in waves. It responds to our thoughts, sensations, and encounters. It peaks and ebbs in a series of highs and lows. It can come from intuition, an old pattern, or a misinterpretation.  It can also come as a truth, which requires the light of awareness.

1) Love, as experienced in the heart, is the highest emotion. When we feel love in the heart space, we usually feel connected and centered—free from the oscillations of life. It’s helpful to cultivate this feeling so we can tap into the heart space when needed. (Imagine feeling pink light in the center of the chest and back. Imagine receiving more light in this space.)

2) Emotions are not always real. Sometimes, we pick up on other people’s emotions or projections. For example, it’s easy to feel angry or afraid if we spend time around someone with a lower vibration. We also tend to feel confused if we “read” deception or an untruth in another person’s energy field. We feel the truth but can’t identify it. (It’s helpful to ask for clarity.)
3) Emotions can also occur as a habitual response. It’s a good practice to ask if we always feel afraid or insecure around particular experiences. If so, we can send light to the feeling and imagine another outcome.

4) Emotions are contagious on the lowest and highest levels. We can feel uplifted in the highest sense or experience panic in a movie theater. We share emotion unless we make an effort to raise our vibration above the frequency of others. Everyone feels the projections of other people. When we are aware of this, we can disconnect and rely on our spiritual practice.

5) It’s important to accept the ebb and flow of our emotional life. We can learn what activates patterns, what calms them, and how to change our focus. For example, exercise, meditation, or a good book can soothe our mood. (It’s important to know that many people activate negative emotions. Think twice before discussing problems with friends.)

6) It’s helpful to recall positive emotions such as courage, perseverance, or joy. When we recall a happy emotion, we essentially “intend” it into our lives. It’s useful to project the opposite emotion of any unhappy state. If we truly connect with it over time, we experience more of it. (Reality follows the lens of our attention.)

7) We are only beginning to learn how to express our emotions constructively in life. (Watch a few movies or the news if you disagree.) When we become more accomplished, we’ll learn how to send waves of peace, love, and joy–and see our lives move into a place of ease and happiness. In the meanwhile, we can observe, focus on positive emotions, and send good energy to our emotional future.

Mastering Fear

 

Alchemy states that mastery occurs through the emotions. BKS Inyengar said, “To master fear is the important battle to win.” Ultimately, we must master fear to create a life on a higher level. There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. We often feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self. The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

Yet, nothing is as fulfilling as connecting with the inner self, and life changes when we live from the heart. We learn to identify the energy associated with our soul. We gain awareness of energy as a whole and learn how it resonates with us. We learn how to create our inner desires, find our gifts, and share them with others.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap.  Fear can feel very real when the universe calls. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big leap. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. (The universe always has a bigger, better plan. Visualize each step and the desirable outcome.) 

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.) If we focus on the inner self as often as possible, we will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3)  It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. (The same is true about improving an aspect of our lives. We often have resistance about creating a better life.) “Destiny’, which is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

4)  The pressure and feeling of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. 

5) Moving into awakening can bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. It means we have work to develop hidden aspects of ourselves and look at the parts of us, which are involved in our patterns. Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. 

6) When we step into heightened intuition, it can take time to distinguish between the soul and ego—and to have a consistent feeling of direction. (This can feel frightening.) The inner self asks us to listen with the heart. It means following intuition or inner guidance as opposed to the voice of the outer world. This may feel strange or uncomfortable in the beginning. Often, the directions don’t make sense. Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.

NOTE:

After every leap, we trust our inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this is learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also have to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.) Over time, these changes lead us into love and connection.

Finding Gratitude

 

The concept of gratitude emerged around a decade ago. Introduced by Stacey Robyn (Go Gratitude), Ester and Jerry Hicks, and discussed in the movie, The Secret, it was touted as a system of creating more good in life. Obviously, gratitude is important, but it’s like so many things–a practice to reap “good” or abundance doesn’t work. (Initially, I remember spending an hour looking around the room while notating items for the expression of gratitude.)

There’s an easier and better method of practicing gratitude. Once you find the missing piece, the practice becomes easy and rewarding. It does reap benefits, but you tend not to care.

Easy Steps For Feeling More Gratitude

1) Nothing truly works without spiritual connection. Connection is the point. Start with meditation, and see where your consciousness moves. Notice how life feels lighter, and everything responds to your deepened state of being. Noticing and observing invoke a state of gratitude.

2) While connected, notice the motion of your consciousness. When you are connected outdoors, you hear the wind more succinctly. You notice the movement of the trees. You hear the birds. You feel the blessing of life. When you are indoors, you may feel the quietness and calm of your meditation. Notice the direction of your senses and the more pleasing objects in the room. (These are blessings. Give thanks.)

3) When you feel strong, happy, or loved, expand the feeling. Imagine more of the feeling, which amplifies the vibration. Amplifying the vibration leads to expansion in life. Expansion and connection are interrelated.

4) When life is moving well, comment to yourself about the feeling of your life. Notice your practices and note your connection. Part of gratitude is simply noticing your blessings.

5) When your efforts make a positive difference, thank the universe. You experience the “good” as part of your connection with the Divine. The same is true with the higher aspects of the self.

6) When you are in a higher state, you naturally notice the good in life. The movement of the mind into the flow of goodness marks a higher state of consciousness. Pay attention. When your attention rests on the good in life, this is a state of gratitude. (Your inner dialog is a good indication of your state of mind.)

Using Gratitude with Problems

It’s the opposite of the practice listed above. The idea is not to notice good things; it’s about changing your focus when you think about problems. Everyone thinks about problems with negative thoughts and emotions—even positive people do this.

Problems are simply where we need more energy or a different type of energy. Energy can include a change in physical routine, a new belief, feeling, or changing the lens of your focus.

  • Remember, you are a creator. You can change your reality by altering your vision and perception of life. You may not know how to do it, but you have the capacity. At least, you can create change. You can feel grateful about your capacity to alter your life, and take a minute or two to see or feel it differently.
  • When you think life is not going well, notice what is okay or bearable. Put your attention on what’s working. Maybe, you don’t have time to do all of your work. But you can do some of it. Notice what you have completed and bless it—or give thanks. In this way, you amplify the good. (When you can’t figure out the next step, visualize it and give thanks for your inner ability.)
  • When you argue with people, remember you have the ability to send light, calm your feelings, or come up with another solution. You can move back into your self-worth and remember what you like about yourself. (If you can, recall what you do like about the other person.) Love is a very special quality of the universe, which changes much of life. When you move back into a state of love, life alters. Thank the universe for the opportunity.
  • If you’ve practiced spiritual work, you know how to center. Everything changes when you center your attention on the presence of your inner self. You will feel grateful without any effort when you achieve it.
  • When you have a difficult day, think about the days that go well. (You’re actually giving gratitude for those times while pushing your energy in the direction of positivity.) Whenever you feel overwhelmed by a problem, notice what isn’t wrong. (If the cake falls, I can make another one or buy one—at least. Maybe, I have to take the animals to the vet, but it’s for a check-up, and nothing’s wrong.) You’re diverting your attention from the problem into the goodness of the moment. It works.

One of the greatest gifts of all is our ability to change our consciousness through connection. It’s a great blessing!

Making Manifestation Work for You!

Manifestation is one of the most incredible tools for creating harmony and happiness. The visualization of the heart’s desire activates a special part of a consciousness, which encourages a positive flow of life. (In general, intuition grows, positive feedback from others ensues, and small miracles occur on the journey to the realization of a“wish”.)

It’s a mystery, but manifestation enlarges the “creator” part of human consciousness, which doesn’t occur during meditation. (Meditation bestows connection with the inner self and the universe at large, but it doesn’t engage the creative process with the inner self.)  “Creation” through visualization and small, physical steps may be part of our next evolutionary step. After all, it is important to listen to our heart and follow its path by creating in the inner/outer world.

  1. Creating a happy, positive reality is part of soul work. It actually aligns you with the universe, awakening hidden abilities and revealing unusual and/or unexpected answers. Generally, it reveals a non-logical but fulfilling path.
  2. Positive manifestation is how you connect to higher consciousness including light, love, and higher realizations. It’s also a way of letting go of who you are not and learning to love who you truly are. (Everyone is already manifesting. A conscious practice is about creating what you want.)
  3. With every manifestation, there is a block or resistance within the self. Let’s call it a mistake in perception, which is corrected by inner work. (It’s obvious how other people block themselves; the challenge lies with seeing the self.) Yes, there is a part of you that blocks the manifestation. (Everyone blocks goodness, abundance, and love. It’s part of what manifestation sets free.)
  4. Manifestation can occur in a few seconds or a few years. It has to do with your evolutionary path, practice, persistence, and other factors such as the people in your life, etc. (On this topic, no one ever regrets the work when the manifestation occurs.) Higher vibrations and positive emotions/thoughts encourage it.
  5. Often, intuition develops sharply as a result of manifestation work. Your gifts may become apparent, and new people often come into your life as a result of inner growth. It’s important to continue your work at this point. (These positive results are known as “rainbows” on the path. They are an indication of positive inner work, but your job is remaining devoted to the next step on the path.)

NOTE:  As you master manifestation, it becomes easy to repeat the steps for yourself, others, and the world. It may be part of how you and the world become conscious together. (Think of 1,000 people with accurate manifestation skills who can see and create wonderful outcomes for the world.)

Tips  on Visualization

  1. Visualization is the first step for manifestation. Make a laser sharp image and focus all of your consciousness on it for 10-15 minutes daily. Imagine living in the image by seeing it as a particular time of day, and you’re “living” in the image for 10 minutes or so.. Notice who accompanies you in the imagery and the passage of events in your life. Accompany the imagery with a positive, happy feeling.
  2. Substitute your imagery for lower feelings. For example, if you’re meditating on money, but bills come in the mail, return the image and make it “real”. It can take many repetitions because your negative feelings and experience may seem more real in the beginning.
  3. It can take a few weeks to master the feeling of the manifestation. For example, if you’re visualizing success, it’s working when you feel more confident. If you’re looking for a better body image, it’s creating a change when you feel better about how you look. (Physical changes follow inner projections, but they often begin with emotional and/or mental shifts.)
  4. You should become more aware of the inner self through your manifestation work. You may hear your inner voice or become more aware of when you’re connected or disconnected. You may also notice that life flows in a specific way with a mood change or a difference in your flow of energy.
  5. You will wonder if it’s working—or when it will work. It’s helpful to tell yourself that it will occur when you’re aligned. (It is happening, but it takes time for energy to translate from the invisible to the visible world.)  From this perspective, try to create positive, small changes in your daily routine and ask how you can become more flexible, compassionate, and loving. (The universe loves this.)

Mastering the Waves of Change

 

When the whole world is changing, it’s helpful to remember how change can become the vehicle for your “right” destination.  Everyone desires change, but it’s easy to encounter resistance during the process. Almost everyone experiences stress (resistance) when listening to the soul because it means living life in an entirely, different way.

Here are a few tips:

  1. It’s a gift to watch the entire world change. Your inner vision of life is accepted and needed. A huge dispensation of light is filling the planet. (Who would want to miss it?) It’s also a opportunity to raise your frequency.
  2. This is a rare time. When you center in the heart, there is a palpable love vibration. You can feel higher collective consciousness. When you join with the higher vibration, there is incredible support. The veil between the physical and spiritual realms is thinner. It’s easier to have the support of angels and beings of light.
  3. It is challenging to experience the waves of change, particularly the waves of chaos and lower energies in the world at large. However, your positive changes help everyone and everything. Think of it as small steps to bring your best vision of the world into being.
  4. It’s “normal” to feel unstable when passing through the process of collecting more light in your life. It’s also wonderful to “hear’ your inner knowing answer questions, provide a calm state, and connect to the All. (It’s not always easy to know if you’re right or wrong, but you learn this over time.)
  5. It’s partially a lesson about manifestation. Everything is manifesting much more quickly, including our lower and higher thoughts and emotions. As consciousness grows, life manifests more rapidly.You also become more aware of other people–their moods, thoughts, and energy fields. As you learn to read this through the heart, you become more adept.
  6. Love is the key to mastering duality. It’s how you ride through the high and low feelings of oscillation. These swings of consciousness can be useful in learning to align with the heart space where unconditional love abides.
  7. Change is the path to the realization of the higher self and its manifestation. Every manifestation creates a “new” self, which is more aligned with the inner self. This means casting off the old self, who began the work on the manifestation. (The resistance is felt by the “old” or lower self, which is casting off old emotions, beliefs, and thoughts.) When the new self is born, it is a beautiful event.

Staying More Connected

  • Your inner power is found through meditation, contemplation, and seeing life from a different perspective. It begins with the desire to connect deeply with the universe. Practicing daily and developing consistency are the first steps. Seeking the “feeling” of receiving insight also helps.
  • Peace is within you. It’s important to find the “emotion” within you. The placement of your consciousness determines the flow of your energy. When you are quiet “within”, the world around you becomes still. You can move into peace.
  • When you seek, imagine, and dwell in a specific point of consciousness, it becomes easier to find it. For example, if you focus on higher consciousness or awakening, you will find more of it. If you recall a peaceful state, it’s easier to create it in the “now.”
  • Higher and lower emotions exist. Events, people, and situations cause your inner feelings to move, but you have the choice to return to “center.” Being centered comes through practice, concentration, and spiritual support from the universe.
  • The universe replicates your internal state. When you move into a place of calm and peace, you actually generate those vibrations into your “reality.”
