New Skills for a New Time

 

In the constantly changing energies, we move between high pitched spiritual feelings (love, elation) to the heaviness of karmic patterns and back to “normal” again.  It’s helpful to accept this as the “new” normal and learn to return to the state of the inner self as much as possible as we adjust to oscillating energies.

In the meanwhile, here are some quick tips.

  1. Adjust to changes in sleeping and eating patterns, repetitive  seeing master numbers on clocks such as 1:11, and strong flashes of intuition, which indicate a heightened state of consciousness. Create balance by making quiet time for self-restoration and meditation. Make a structure for diet, rest, and exercise. (Naps are fine.)
  2. Karmic patterns with their deep, emotional and repetitive sensation are apparent for everyone on the spiritual path. They can appear as a situation, challenge, decision, or conflict with a loved one. (Karmic patterns seem familiar but often lack a solution.) Ask the universe to clear and delete a portion of your feelings and thoughts. Ask to remember the feeling of your inner self and focus on it, which lessens the feeling and brings quieter emotions that can develop into solutions.
  3. Work with your energy field. Focus on the heart and a sensation of peace to alter the energy of a space such a restaurant or store. Small objects tend to rearrange themselves when our energy is out of sync. Stay calm. They will surface again. When the computer and electronics are slow and/or strange, take a walk. Grounding improves how everything works.
  4. Observe resistance. 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. It’s how your inner self is speaking and asking you to create a new future. It can bring temporary feelings of fear, upset, or loneliness. Tell the universe you want to change, and you’re ready to listen.
  5. Use your power to see “good” for the world and other people. Move into a space of love. See the inner self of others and the positive possibilities for the world. Use your power as a creator and see life from a higher light. (Giving in this way opens the heart to a higher universal connection. Sending light to the self and others is one of your most powerful tools.)

NOTE: All of the skills are simple, but they require time, repetition, and patience. I like them because they lead to a higher placement of consciousness, which is essentially the answer to almost everything.

Full Flower Moon

 

The Full Moon appeared on Tuesday, May 29. Its influence will continue for approximately 10 days. The Full Moon increases our potential for manifestation; it brings fruition and germination to earth.

This full moon is called the Flower Moon, appropriately bringing beautiful aspects such as a Grand Trine between Venus (love), Jupiter (good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion). The Grand Trine can accentuate creativity, harmonious emotions, and aid with manifestation. (In this sense, it expands the Full Moon’s quality of bringing thoughts and desires into form.) The chart has challenges, mainly based on thought, emotion, and action—the three aspects of life that impact physical reality.

Sun is in Gemini, the air sign symbolized by the twins, and Moon is in Sagittarius, heightening emotional longing for journeys, adventures, and philosophical truth. Sun conjuncts (close) Mercury in Taurus, sharpening our wits and focusing the mind. Sun trines Mars (energy, male, assertion), increasing our ability to take action when creating our life and/or changing our path.

Moon opposes Mercury (communication, thought) in Taurus, making a strange mix-up between emotions and thought. It exaggerates both emotion and thought. Negative thoughts may seem stronger than usual, and there’s a tendency to overreact as well. (It’s a short-lived aspect, which will fade away in a few days. While under the influence of the full moon, it’s best to avoid heated discussion.)

Moon and Sun square Neptune, heightening sensitivity, emotion, and adding confusion to the chart. Sun square Neptune, indicates a need to build self-confidence and strength by taking action to express feelings and correct misinterpretations from others. Moon square Neptune heightens old drama from childhood relationships with the mother. (Both aspects ask for expression of hidden emotion and thought to clear old patterns and create a better perception of the self.)

Moon trines (harmonious) North Node (spiritual quest) and Chiron (wounded healer). These aspects help in finding a harmonious attitude and the right feelings to follow our inner navigation and release wounds from the past, which slow the journey.

Mercury

Mercury (thought, communication) in Taurus grounds and slows our thoughts. Mercury trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), giving the intellectual ability to perceive underlying mysteries through analytical and investigative skills. Pluto is the underworld and, sometimes, the underlying truth, and this aspect can aid in penetrating to the “truth” behind specific situations and behavior of others.

Venus

Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer is loving, warm, and nurturing. Venus trines Jupiter, bringing harmonious energies such as charisma, positive finances, and creativity. Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune form a Grand Water Trine. Grand Trines increase our ability to manifest. In this case, the focus is on love/relationships (Venus), Jupiter (increase, expansion) and Neptune (mystical, illusion). Venus (love) sits in Cancer, the mother; Jupiter (expansion) is placed in Scorpio (transformation), and Neptune is in Pisces (mystical love). By nurturing and loving ourselves (Venus), we transform our lives in a positive way (Jupiter) and overcome the karma of the past (Neptune), allowing us to move into mystical love.

Water signs in a Grand Trine can heighten the emotional state, linking us with our dreams—and propelling them into form through creativity, dreaming, and reflecting on the fabric of possibility in life. A trine is represented by a triangle, the symbol of bringing together opposites and transforming them into harmony with a third point of reference; it also increases our capacity for manifestation. (Think of the pyramids.)

Venus opposes Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation.) Oppositions tend to feel difficult, but the Grand Trine provides energies to overcome these aspects. Venus opposite Saturn brings feelings of loneliness and victimhood to the surface. Venus in opposition to Pluto can cause control issues, regarding love, to surface; it can also give the power to express hidden feelings in a positive way. (The challenge is to employ honesty and vulnerability over manipulation and a desire to control others to feel safe and protected.)

Mars

Mars (male, assertion) is placed in Aquarius, a fixed air sign. Air signs are concerned with thought and communication so it’s not a perfect placement for a sign that loves action. In this placement, the challenge is overcoming Aquarian qualities such as a strong focus stubbornness, independence, and getting one’s way.

Tension is created with Mars’ square (tension) with Uranus (unexpected change, quantum field). It can ignite temper or cause sudden, unexpected change, particularly when aligned with irrational thought. (Often, national violence seems aligned with this placement. In other words, irrational thoughts are inappropriately interpreted through impulsive action.)

Saturn (limitation, the past, karma) trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), bringing a harmonious rhythm and integration between the past and future.

Chiron

Mercury (thought) and Mars (action) sextile (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer, suggesting positive thoughts and actions can help in healing old wounds. Saturn (time, karma) squares (tension) Chiron, which indicates conflict between the beliefs behind wounds and the impetus to heal and move beyond them.

Notes:

  • It’s a lovely full moon forecast with many aspects to appreciate the beauty in life and to find a space “within” for powerful manifestation.
  • The Grand Trine helps with love, good fortune, resources, and connecting with the mystical world. The Grand Trine is in water, and it can aid in smoothing emotions and creating a harmonious bridge between ourselves and others.
  • Moon and Mercury are in opposition. It is a short-term aspect, but it’s important to know our emotions and thoughts are on an adrenalin ride whenever we feel upset, surprised, or defensive. (Wait 3 or 4 days before confronting issues. They may evaporate—or we’ll feel differently about the best form of communication.)
  • Mercury’s aspect with Pluto can help to find the “real” truth behind energetic situations, the flow of life, and philosophical questions. It sharpens the intellect.
  • A theme of the need to build self-confidence is found throughout the chart. Perhaps, it is about trusting the power and voice of the inner self. This state is called “knowing”, and it’s impossible to doubt when we experience it.
  • Venus’ oppositions with Saturn and Pluto can cause insecurity and the need to control. (We feel the need to control when we feel afraid and/or overwhelmed.) It’s important to remember the beauty of who we truly are, what we have accomplished, and how far we have come.

Rewriting Your Thoughts to Change Your Life

 

There’s a magical equation for thought. When we change our thoughts, we alter our energy field. Positive thoughts expand it; negative thoughts contract it. (Consider quantum physics experiments when photons followed the observer’s belief in outcome. They changed their path when another person–with a different belief–was added to the experiment.)

Changing our thoughts is part of how we reach a higher frequency–and how the world alters.Thoughts alter emotions–and the direction of our lives. When we’re feeling positive, life feels quite different. Sometimes, we soar.
1) We have about 50,000 thoughts per day, and most of our thoughts are repetitive. (We discover this when meditating.) Through gaining awareness of our thoughts, we can determine their nature. Repetitive themes have particular stimuli, phases of time, and a specific energy. They contribute to a lowered state of vibration and energy. A higher state of being is associated with positive thoughts.
2) For better results in life, think positive, happy thoughts. Thoughts vibrate out into the world. Think of thoughts as tiny messages that are received by individuals and the universe. People receive the information and react accordingly. The universe energizes whatever we think because it’s the object of our focus.

3) Everyone has negative feelings and thoughts, which become more obvious on the spiritual path. As the focus increases, negative thoughts become more noticeable. Try one of the following techniques to return to a more positive state of mind. Focus on the sensation of the hands and feet. Anchoring in physicality fades out negative thoughts.  Try to visualize the opposite of the initial thought. Negative thoughts often involve patterns, which keep us from achieving our desires and dreams. A positive visual pulls the energy away from the negative thought/pattern. (Take an action step whenever possible.)

4) Accept the situation, person, or energy involved in the negative thought. Think one good thought about the situation and energy. (At least, I am alive and well.) Think about the feeling of the resolution of the problem. How does it feel?

5) Notice the particular stimuli that produce negative thoughts. Feelings, places, and repetitive tasks and/or situations may invoke negative thoughts. If this is the case, try to change the focus of consciousness. Simply noticing the stimulus is part of becoming more aware of the pattern. (Accept the thought and quiet the mind.)

6) Think about a time when life was happy, and everything moved in a positive direction. Hold this feeling/visual and imagine that it’s happening NOW. (Positive thoughts pull in positive events, and they alter the biochemistry of the body.)

7) Thoughts often come from other people and/or mass consciousness. Ask if the thought comes from either of these sources. If so, ask the universe to break the connection and create alignment with the inner self. Repeat several times.

8)  Raise your vibration. Focus on the heart and imagine love flowing through it. Pull the problem back into the center of the body. Focus on feeling centered. We tend to project problems outwardly, which exaggerates them.

9) Pull the energy away from the situation and back into the self. (We tend to energize problems by thinking about them and sending energy to them.) If the mind sticks on a certain person, think about their good qualities. If the mind stays attuned to a negative situation, think about a positive outcome. When thoughts concern the self, change them to a positive reflection. (Ask if there is a lesson.)

10)  Send love (pink light) to negative thoughts. The lower part of the self, which generates negative thoughts, will receive it. Love cancels negativity and darkness. Believe in its power. Call on angels and guides. Ask for help in seeing life in a different way. Ask your angels to clear negative thoughts and receive positive input in their place.

Working with Light

Part of inner work involves finding your inner light and voice (intuition.) It’s easiest to begin by meditating and focusing on the heart, which connects you to a place of infinite light and love.

  1. At first, you may to “imagine” sending light and/or love. It takes time and practice to bring about results with  the invisible, spiritual world. If you continue, you will feel the energy and know it’s working.
  2. Focus on your heart and feel pink light (love) flowing into you. You can also imagine a pink cloud around you, which delivers unconditional love from the universe. Breathe pink light for 2 or 3 minutes. Feel the love.
  3. Send light to yourself and future opportunities. For opportunities, imagine a gentle beam of light as it illuminates a specific time in space–or see a door opening to a new way of life. (With problems, imagine the problem as a shape like a cloud. Send light to the particles of the cloud and see the cloud dissolving. Part of the trick of this exercise is sending light as opposed to thinking about the future or problem.)
  4. Use light to find answers and solutions. (You don’t have to know the answer.) See the light shining on the future, and you are experiencing joy and relief as a result. (It’s interesting, but I believe every light worker helps in solving problems for many other people by working on their own lives. It pushes the solution out in the “bowl” of larger consciousness.)
  5. Send light to any tired, achy parts of the body. Ask to see your body as healthy and whole. “See” your body moving easily and freely.
  6. You can send light and love to other people. You can imagine that their problems are solved, or they feel happier and healthier.
  7. Focus on your desired future and see it as a strong image. Send light to it and imagine living in this place of consciousness. (The light corrects our thoughts and visualizations. It also awakens our intuition.)

Full Pink Moon Forecast

 

The Pink Full Moon appears on April 29. The moon is called “pink” as a reference to flowers and spring. Fortunately, it also brings the best forecast in several weeks. The Moon (inner self, emotions) is placed in Scorpio, a water sign, which benefits growth and fruition in the garden of life. With Sun (outer life) in Taurus, it’s a very fertile time.  (It’s literally one of the best moons for transplanting and germinating seeds as well as expanding dreams into physical form.)

Sun trines Saturn (karma, limitation), and this aspect increase enthusiasm and confidence with worldly and inner pursuits. It’s always a boon to feel pleased about overcoming personal limitations! Sun opposes Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio. Our desire to enjoy nature and build outwardly in the physical world can conflict with Moon and Jupiter’s message to dig deeper and see beneath the surface.

The Moon is lovely, forming a sextile with Saturn (karma, limitation), which boosts our emotional state when overcoming patterns and emotions. It conjuncts (close) Jupiter, expanding our ability to see through illusion and find truth. Moon trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which connects us with the unseen world, increases intuition, and our perception of beauty. (This is a powerful moon with many aspects to lift our emotions and help us to see the beauty and possibility in life.)

Mercury (thought, communication) in Aries squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (power, subconscious). The focus on learning the best way of communicating continues. It’s helpful to observe reactions relating to patterns, tiredness, and lack of connection with the self. (Much time and work is needed to learn to speak and act from the heart; it’s a soul lesson.)

Venus (love, feminine) squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can accentuate and make the beauty of life more intense. (It can help with poetry, writing, and art.) It can also cause confusion with discerning between reality and truth, particularly with relationships.

Mars (male, action) is retrograde, which can bring feelings of tiredness, making it more important to develop or stay with positive, physical regimens. Mars squares (tension) Uranus, and this aspect can create impulsive action. Mars conjuncts Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which gives a strong desire for action. (Think twice before acting whenever possible.)

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) trines Neptune, which lifts our spirits with a feeling of optimism and hope.  Jupiter sextiles Pluto (subconscious, transformation), and this can bring positive events associated with changes in life.

Uranus remains square Pluto, but the aspect is weakening. Uranus will move into Taurus on May 15, and we’ll enter a new cycle of awakening.

Notes:

  • Overall, it’s a positive chart, encouraging change and growth. Two types of change are accentuated. One is through transformation, the creation of new life. The second concerns the enjoyment of nature and putting thoughts into physical form. (Think about a garden and the process of adding, trimming, and moving plants. It’s part intuition, planning, and physical work.)
  • Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio touch on the value of introspection, states of transition such as birth and death, and the inherent mysteries of the unseen world. They can aid in understanding the relationship between energy, events, and outcomes.
  • The energy is intense, positive, and uplifting. It’s an excellent time for focus on manifestation. Plan to make extra time for meditation and visualize your desires. Take a small action if possible.
  • Some of the squares with Mercury (communication), Mars (action), and Pluto (transformation, subconscious) remain, but they are separating. In other words, they are becoming weaker and exerting less influence–or stress.
  • With Mars in retrograde – a two month cycle – it’s particularly important to maintain a good diet and exercise routine. Mars retrograde decreases physical energy.
  • Sun and Moon make positive aspects with Saturn (karma, limitation), which can create breakthroughs with patterns and limitations in life.
  • Aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) can help in seeing the beauty and hope in life. Dreams may become more vivid, and intuition may increase.
  • Chiron (wounded healer) is in Aries, asking for awareness about patterns that may contribute to wrong action–or actions not in the alignment with the inner self.

Find the Light

 

Light and love are always the answer. They hold the highest vibrations on the planet. If we call on the light, the universe answers. But it’s easier to access “light” through specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of problems, including receiving more enlightenment and understanding. When we see and feel life differently, it often alters into a higher vibration—and brings more positive outcome.

“Real” love feels unconditional, soft, and centered. It brings healing, answers, and gentle self-motivation. It helps in seeing the good in the self and others. It is like looking through a beautiful, rainbow lens with a heart, which feels uplifted and calm. All of the exercises will help in finding this place.

Here are a few tips for working with the Inner Self.

  1. Come to center and find inner self on a daily basis. Meditation helps in finding the true self. From this place, wisdom, self-love, and peace flow. The answer is in the center; it feels simple and true when you find it. (It’s easiest to call in the light by becoming still. It’s helpful to pull inward to feel the inner self. )
  2. Put your attention on happiness. Happiness—like all inner states—requires attention and contemplation. (It’s actually a habit.) Notice all of the things, which bring happiness in your life. Listen to your voice to see if it conveys happiness. Notice your feelings when you look at objects, read emails, or travel short distances. Make a conscious effort to expand and find happiness throughout the day.
  3. Peace acts like a river; it eases and soothes emotion. There are no thoughts when we align with peace, only stillness. Imagine experiencing peace before/after others attempt to pull us into drama. (As our energy level heightens, others try to pull you into their drama. By detaching from their drama and visualizing a happy outcome, we can return to place of peace.
  4. Know that life moves in a cyclical pattern, marked by highs and lows. The challenge lies in finding and observing the pattern, altering emotions, and making “center” or the true self more important than the feelings and situation.
  5. Conflicting thoughts comprise part of spiritual growth. It’s how we put ourselves together and resolve the many parts of the self. When the answer comes, it will be simple. It will resonate with the inner self. Until this time comes, notice the feelings. It’s okay to feel two, conflicting emotions and/or thoughts. Eventually, the thoughts do bring resolution and wholeness.
  6. Pull the mind away from upsetting thoughts and situations. Return to the heart. Practice meditation to return to center, then visualize a positive outcome in a place of stillness.
  7. Know the process is working, and the universe wants to help. While many of these tips and exercises are not logical, they follow spiritual law. Our visualizations thoughts, and emotions alter the course of life because they invoke—and the most  powerful part of our inner being.

Working with the Outer Self

  1. You can also use light with the self who interacts in the physical world. (This is actually how you act on the inner self’s insights.) You can begin by seeing success in your endeavor and follow it with a tangible step. Every step counts, and they add up.)
  2. All new work in the outer world requires courage and persistence. You’re following your intuition, and you may not know exactly how to move in the right direction. Decide on a task, see in fruition, and take a chance.  (Any response is always a positive answer–whether it seems like it or not.)
  3. Overcoming fear and resistance is part of the challenge. You (and everyone else) have patterns and blocks. Overcoming them is part of spiritual success. Sometimes, you simply feel the fear and go forward.
  4. Find a knowledgeable person to help with your endeavor. It saves time, effort, and energy.
  5. Focus on small tasks by creating a  visual or feeling of your desirable outcome. When you feel doubt or hesitation, return to your image and feeling. The images and feelings surrounding your desires come partially from the universe, which will come to your aid if you are consistent in invoking it through your thoughts, images, and placement of consciousness. Love yourself for making this effort.

Easy, Happier Change

 

As nature alters the outer world with new life, it’s a perfect time for change. It’s lovely to create change that positively alters the direction of your life.

The world is full of tips for an easier, happier, and better life, but it really begins with you. The biggest changes come from finding the inner self, and they make life better, and happier (in the long run—at least.)

If you start with inner work, it’s easier than the way you’re taught in the “real” world. When you find your inner self first, the universe helps. Sometimes, the help comes through other people, a class, or a realization. Other times, it is simply a feeling that is used as a guide to find the way.

Here are a few tips for creating change from the inside out.

Listen to your intuition. Positive intuition is the voice of the heart, the direction of the inner self. By practicing with it, the voice – and feeling – become more noticeable. You can ask for the best way to perform a task, when it’s best to call a friend, or how to create more abundance and love. (You already listen to it in the parts of life that you’ve mastered and/or developed.)

Find balance between the spiritual and physical worlds. Discover the right balance of passive/assertive action for you.  Spend time in visualization/meditation and seeing all of life moving in the wonderful direction of your desire. Allow emotions and thoughts to move into a high vibration. Then, take a positive step to enact your dream in the physical world. (A small step is fine. Just follow your inner guidance.) After the action, visualize positive results and repeat the process.

Use your power. You’re more powerful than you think! Begin by visualizing small, happy events – a parking space, a check in the mail, or a gift from a special friend. Energize the desire. Think of times when you focused strongly and created a change. Remember when you spoke up in a calm, powerful voice. Remember when you’ve helped your self and others to find a better place of being.

Find the heart space. Your heart is the center of your being, the place of love, where you can center, send love to others, and find the help from the Universe. The heart tells you about everything that is true, lovely, and eternal. (It’s also a wonderful place to rest and detach from the world.)

Alter your perception. See the good in life. Notice the beauty, joy, and love. It’s possible to change aspects of life by changing the your inner focus. Think about the light in loved ones, notice the color of flowers, and reflect on the gift of the motion of life. (On a more specific level, you could decide your current job is leading to a wonderful one, or your bills are decreasing as your income increases. Regardless, the practice moves you into a higher state of consciousness.

By practicing these tips, you can make life easier and better because the tips engage the inner self and a different, higher part of consciousness. Over time, they will become habitual and will help a great deal. At the beginning of the practice, they will increase your energy and bring positive emotions.

Blue Super Moon!

Blue Moon, Blood Moon, Super Moon, and Eclipse appears on Wednesday, January 31, and it has many names and energies. The lunar eclipse will take place at 9:07 am, and we’ll feel the energy for several weeks. (A lunar eclipse is essentially a reset, a motion into darkness, followed by light.(The eclipse may also stir up patterns and/or longings from last summer’s solar eclipse.) All full moons carry the energetic blueprint of fruition, germination, and realization of dreams. A Blue Moon is simply 2 full moons in one month, and a super moon is closer to the earth than usual. At any rate, it’s all powerful!

There is definitely a magical, beneficial energy associated with the moon. Think of extra light permeating through the darkness, bringing additional illumination. That’s part of what this moon can do, and it’s definitely important to believe in our power to make dreams come true.

The Blue Moon Chart presents both challenges and benevolent energy. Moon (inner self, emotions) trines Mars (male, assertion), which harmonizes feelings and actions. Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), energizing our hopes and dreams in a positive sense. Saturn (karma) and Uranus (new age) are trine, increasing our ability to combine the old and new (worlds).

The Blue Moon conveys an equation of rewriting the past, letting go of unwanted aspects of life, and putting the two together in a new form. (Of course, the new form is “life”.) The major aspects of the chart fall in fixed signs, indicating the aspects of the self that are strongly anchored in belief, habit, and feeling. (In general, fixed signs have difficulty altering their point of view.)

Here are the major points of interest:

  1. Much of the chart revolves around fixed signs of Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio. Sun (outer self), Moon (inner self, emotions), Venus (love, material goods), and Jupiter (good fortune). (Fixed signs tend not to express flexibility or openness to change. They do convey both loyalty and patience.) However, this chart is about finding flexibility and openness with parts of the self, others, and the world.
  2. Sun (outer life) and Venus (love, material goods) in Aquarius are conjunct, heightening our interest in the New Age, which opens the mind and spirit to both new techniques and possibilities. However, Moon (emotions) is placed in the fire sign of Leo.
  3. Moon (emotion) opposes (is opposite) Venus (feminine, love). Our emotions will run “hot”, but Venus in Aquarius is detached. The issue brings up the importance of feeling emotion, but expressing them in a way that brings communion and connection (Venus in Aquarius). It’s quite an equation.
  4. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action, male) in Sagittarius, a fire sign. Previously, Mars in Scorpio felt emotional and steamy, but Mars in Sagittarius moves life along at a faster pace. The trine will help in taking action to create and realize goals.
  5. Sun, Moon, and Venus square Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio is all about passion and achieving the heart’s desires. Squares can cause tension or feelings of frustration. In this case, the assignment is to discover how we block our desires through how we live our life (Sun), the expression of our emotions (Moon), and how we love and/or define love (Venus).
  6. Mercury (communications) squares Uranus (higher mind, quantum field), so our intuition will not be completely clear. Likely, we’ll receive hints about changing lives or strong feelings about the future. But we won’t get a clear read.
  7.  Obviously, it’s not a crystal clear chart. Many aspects hint at how to merge parts of the outer self for greater connection and unity. But there’s also a mystery, a feeling of where to go–without clear directions. In spiritual work, this is considered “good” because it causes us to look within for answers that are not evident in the outer world.
