Solar Eclipse and Powerful New Moon

Photo by Griffin Lambert

 

 

The New Moon appears on Thursday, June 10 at 6:52 am ET.  The New Moon is preceded by an Annular Solar Eclipse at 5:24 a.m. — an eclipse that partially obscures the sun and appears as a ring of fire. All eclipses act as a reset, altering consciousness through an on/off motion, but Solar Eclipses alter our perception of self. They often reveal our habits and karma while indicating the best path for development of the inner self. (We can create positive change by meditating and/or moving into a state of stillness and openness.)

The planets are heavily placed in air (mind) and water (emotion). Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Saturn are in air; Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune are placed in water signs.  The challenge lies in aligning thoughts and emotions to create clarity in recreating our lives as we recover from 2020. The spiritual path opens when our thoughts and emotions harmonize with the inner self, and the light appears so that we can follow the best path for inner development.

Sun (life, light), Moon (emotions, feelings) and Mercury (thought, communications) are conjunct (close) in Gemini, an air sign which rules the mind. Three planets in Gemini tend to increase our ability to communicate, heighten mental processes, and bring versatility. They also allow flexibility in life opening our consciousness to various, new ways of operating through life. (The energy is a bit indirect as Mercury is retrograde through June 22. When Mercury is retrograde, it’s easy to become confused and distracted.)

Before moving into aspects with Sun, Moon, and Mercury, it’s important to know aspects in a specific chart can sound contradictory, but they actually imply the power of choice and free will. We can apply the excellent focus of Sun/Moon/Mercury with Saturn, which brings success through perseverance and disciple or flow into the vivid dream life, created with Neptunian aspects. It’s also possible to combine the two by using an artistic endeavor to express unusual hopes and dreams.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (mind) square Neptune (illusion, mysticism). Sun square Neptune can exacerbate worries and anxiety, but creative pursuits channel the energy. (Turn to art, gardening, or a form of artistic expression to channel the energy.) It can bring a dreamy state that makes it difficult to focus.  Moon square Neptune alters perception, heightening the tendency to confuse dreams and reality. Mercury square Neptune confuses the mind and can make it difficult to follow our chosen path.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions) and Mercury (mind) trine Saturn (limitation, structure, karma.) Sun trines (harmonious) Saturn, bringing recognition and success for past efforts. It adds energy and focus with career and achievement of long-term goals. Moon trine Saturn stabilizes emotion, bestows patience, and openness to opportunity. Mercury (mind) trine Saturn promotes persistence and logic; it can also bring success to any endeavor.

Three squares with Neptune can bring lack of clarity, poor communication, and the tendency to confuse thoughts and emotions with dreams and/or inclinations as opposed to the clear light of reality. However, there is a part of the self that always knows the way out of the trees and onto the path that leads home. By utilizing our inner awareness and the forces of nature – such as grounding through earth energy – we can find our way back to the true path.

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Cancer, a feminine water sign that is represented by the “Mother”. Venus trines Jupiter (good fortune, expansion). It’s a wonderful aspect that brings beauty, optimism and expansion of abundance. It increases beauty and aids with finding love in life as well as seeking love with the right person. (Jupiter is in Pisces where is exalted, heightening positive aspects such as this.)

Mars (male, overall energy) is placed in Cancer, but it moves into Leo on Friday, which will bring additional energy to our physicality and passion for life. Mars trine Neptune (illusion, mysticism) heightens creativity, drive, and passion. Mars opposition (challenging) Pluto (underworld, transformation) intensifies our energy dramatically, and it can bring up old patterns of victimhood. The best course of action is transforming beliefs and acting with courage to alter our experience of “reality”.

Saturn (karma, limitation) in Aquarius squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) in Taurus, an earth sign. Earth and air can bring thoughts into form, and Saturn rules structure including the skeletal system, the form of our lives, and laws and rules. Astrologer Elizabeth Jones said, “The key is to allow Saturn to build a life that resonates with the cosmic agenda of Uranus rather than those of the past age, which is waning.”

Uranus asks for awakening, expansion beyond established rules, and attunement with universal laws along with new methods of thinking and living. In short, old structures are falling apart, and Uranus asks what do we want in their place?

The answer to the question is up to us. We’re on a path of ascension to a higher level, and everyone is different. We have different thoughts and gifts, but our commonality on issues determines physical outcomes. (Our thoughts, preferences, emotions, and spiritual attunement are very important at this time.)

 

Summary and Tips

  • A focus on versatility, thought, and communication comes with the placement of Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) in Gemini. It’s a wonderful time for self-expression.
  • Mercury (thought) retrograde and Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Neptune can cloud our thoughts. This can lead to dreaminess—or a desire to rest and do nothing at all. However, Sun, Moon, and Mercury trine Saturn, giving powers of concentration and the ability to succeed with long term goals. It’s wise to take a few hours each day to focus on the tasks, which are associated with success and positive outcome.
  • A wonderful, optimistic, and loving energy comes from Venus (love) trine Jupiter (expansion, good luck). Jupiter is placed in Pisces, and it brings harmony and happiness into our lives.
  • Mars in Leo will bring high energy and passion into our lives.
  • Overall, it’s wise to make a plan to rest and dream—and take guided action.

Planetary Change: Full Harvest Moon

As fall comes with the turn of the season, we move into another time of energetic change. The Full Harvest Moon on October 1 brings big waves of energy, which require proper navigation. It’s important to find direction through the inner self, which acts as the North Star, and proceed in the direction of its light and beauty. (Many aspects in the chart will help with the journey—although it is not an easy one.)

Sun is placed in Libra, an air sign, and Moon is in Aries, a fire sign. Sun in Libra is about balance, harmony, cooperation, and relationships. Relationships can vary from partners, friends, the inner self, and our view of life. It also rules commitments, and the chart focuses on commitment to the self and the aspects of life, which are important to our growth. Moon in Aries increases impulsiveness, creativity, and conflict. (Conflict is less likely if we take inspired action.)

Sun (life) squares Jupiter (expansion, growth). This aspect brings tension between our desires and reality. It heightens the need to push, achieve, and accomplish, but it clouds the issue with demands from the ego when inner growth is the true issue. Inner growth requires dedication, persistence, and practice as well as clarity of purpose. It’s actually an opportunity to see how our beliefs about success, the self, and life can interfere with the pursuit of the dreams of our heart. (For example, we can think about the blocks or patterns that appear in the areas of life that are not working well. What are the thoughts and feelings, which accompany the blocks? Are there new actions, emotions, or insights, which might be useful?)

Moon (emotions/feelings) squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion, growth). The square tends to exaggerate emotions, sensitivity, and impulses—as well as the desire to manifest. However, emotions can act as a distraction by overpowering the desire to work and remain focused. They can color and distort the experience of life through overwhelm or self-indulgence, which leads away from the desire to express inner gifts and talents through work.  Self-discipline is needed to move through this influence.

Mercury (communications, mind) is placed in Scorpio, a passionate water sign that sees beneath the surface. Mercury in Scorpio is intense and emotional, and this can cause difficulty with receiving a clear read. Conversely, it can also reveal deeper truths behind the workings of the mind. Mercury squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma), and it tends to give focus to negative thinking, shyness, and reserve, but it’s possible to master the energy by working through the blocks or becoming conscious of them—at least.

Mercury is in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which creates a wave of nervous energy, the desire to perform several tasks at once, and sudden, abrupt upsets. Mercury rules communications, and there is a greater chance of incorrect reporting, and opinions are easily misunderstood. A frantic/hurried feeling can accompany the aspect.

NOTE: Mercury in Scorpio moves into the final retrograde for 2020 on October 13. It’s a time to retreat within, review the changes in the world for 2020, and find personal truths about life. The retrograde is likely to feel intense as it affects emotion—and Mars will be retrograde in Aries.

Mars (overall energy, passion, male) is retrograde in Aries, the strong sign of the warrior. Mars can bestow feelings of frustration, or it can give the power to move through problems and find solutions. (We use the energies in move ahead with dreams and projects—or we can feel overwhelmed by the strange flow of energy.) Mars makes two squares, which influence and enhance the feeling of the chart.

Venus (love, partnerships, beauty) is in Virgo, an earth sign.  When placed in Virgo, Venus can help with health rituals, exercise, and diet. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars, which supplies balance and understanding between yin/yang aspects in life and male/female relationships.

With Mars retrograde, life does not appear to move in a straight line with clear direction. It’s similar to driving on a road around a mountain. Mars squares Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), which heightens creativity and the desire to take action—without adding the factor of logical thought. It expands enthusiasm and excessive emotions. Mars squares Saturn (limitation, karma) contributes feelings of limitation and restriction, particularly with current circumstances of life. It’s important to look at meaningful projects and progress—and move more deeply into current plans as opposed to projections.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trine Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) is a blessing in this chart. The harmonious energy between the two planets opens our minds to a bigger picture, opening our psyche to greater possibilities. It helps with new ideas, moving through stagnation, and finding/creating brighter dreams for the future. Jupiter sextiles (positive) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can bring a feeling of optimism and connection with the Divine.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto remain conjunct in the same aspect, which brought about the current changes in energy and structure of the world. The aspect continues throughout the year.

7 Trends and Changes in Energy

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

Why Does Life Feel So Intense?

You may see master numbers like 11:11 or 22:22 while encountering synchronicity constantly—or you may feel frustrated and overwhelmed emotionally. A small event may send you reeling back into the worst of childhood memories, but you’re totally peaceful after a few minutes of meditation.

What’s happening? The earth (and humanity) are experiencing huge waves of light, solar storms, and fluctuations in geomagnetic field. Astrologically, we’re preparing for a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on July 2. (The chart lines up with aspects of the United States’ natal chart. Think about what you love about it because conjunctions intensify both good and bad.) Mercury retro begins on July 7 and extends throughout the month. A lunar eclipse comes on July 16 along with many retrograde, outer planets. Obviously, the earth and nature are changing with the current cosmic changes.

Yes, the energy will become stronger, and people will probably become more reactive unless the “conscious” group devotes to more meditation.

Why Are People So Emotional?

Light amplifies everything. Think about shining a huge light on a room. You’ll see the dust and dirt hidden beneath the surface. The same is true with the self.

The past is “up” for examination. It usually doesn’t feel good to relive mistakes and painful events. However, it’s how you evolve. However, karma is simply a lower vibration. When you learn how to maintain a higher vibration and/or new vibrations, you displace karma and create new opportunities in life. (Light and/or a higher frequency actually connects you to the quantum field where energy behaves very differently, creating small and large miracles.)

What About Self-Sabotage?

Self-sabotage and mistakes come from a relatively, small part of the self. If you’re experiencing awakening and/or higher consciousness, you’re probably complex with many, different parts of the self.

Only a small part of you (one part of the self) is making mistakes, and it occurs when you’re not awake. This part of the self will share ideas and thoughts when you’re not paying attention. They often sound good because they are part of an old pattern—a program to keep you in the comfort zone of staying the same. You’re noticing self-sabotage because you’re awakening. Otherwise, you wouldn’t notice it. You’d think life wasn’t working, and it wasn’t your fault.

NOTE: It doesn’t help to feel guilt or blame yourself. It’s best to know a small part of you created the dissonance. Send light to it. Promise to do better.

What Can You Do?

It’s important to remember this is a time of awakening. There are huge opportunities for growth in consciousness, manifesting our dreams, and bringing wholeness into this incarnation. (I didn’t say it was easy!)

Meditation and manifestation are very important because meditation teaches connection with the Divine, and manifestation teaches us how to reach the quantum field. They both raise your frequency, which how spiritual change takes place. (It’s not selfish because we learn – and want to – share whatever we manifest with others. It’s particularly true if you’re creating from your heart.)

Focus on the heart in moments of chaos. Ask for help instead of focusing on problems. Call on your angels, guides, and the universe. Imagine having the solution instead of searching for it.

There’s a part of you that knows what to do. You may not find it right away, but it will appear if you focus on it.

Planetary Change: Thought and Illusion

The New Moon appears on Monday, June 3, at 6:01 am. It’s a time of the void when we reflect on the next lunar cycle of energy. The New Moon chart focuses on the mind with Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Gemini. It brings intense mental energy along with a feeling of pressure. The Sabian Symbols point to learning how to share our gifts, new beginnings, and the importance of intuitive perception.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are placed in Gemini, an air sign, representing the duality of thought. An emphasis on duality is found throughout the chart, and duality is resolved within the inner self. Sun and Moon are in the air sign of Gemini, symbolized by the twins, and ruling the mind and all forms of communication.  Air can refer to the lower or higher mind, and twins are a symbol of duality-representing the interplay of light and darkness. The element of air can also represent the quantum field, the instantaneous transfer of information from the cosmos into the personal mind that creates a gestalt moment of realization.


Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are conjunct or closely placed, heightening the stimulation of our mental processes. The conjunctions act as a catalyst for the mind, increasing our propensity to fire rapid thoughts. Discernment is the key to differentiate between meaningless and meaningful thoughts.  (Influences such as emotions, sensations, the energy fields of others, and the overall global frequency affect our thoughts.)

 

Too much thought and mental activity can cause nervousness and/or restlessness. The air (mental activity) in the chart can keep us in our head when emotions and connection with the earth are needed to pass through the intense but uplifting chart. (There are many aspects and planetary placements, which help with transformation and evoke sensitivity.)

A T-square exerts pressure, and it causes restlessness and interference with mental focus. It is formed between Sun/Moon in Gemini, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces.  By meditating and focusing on the inner self, we can discern the thoughts and actions that lead to a calmer mind and inner focus.

Venus (feminine, relationships, love) is placed in Taurus, and it is exalted. Venus connects us to the beauty of life and expands our ability to commune with the earth. This placement encourages communication with the earth and opens our consciousness. Venus trines Pluto, which gives the opportunity to experience higher, more elated emotion.

Mars (masculine energy, assertiveness) placed in Cancer is a bit misplaced, and it tends to pull our energy down with emotional reactions, which may feel surprisingly strong. It tends to elicit strong emotions from the past and angry feelings that may have been repressed.  Mars opposes Saturn (karma, time), creating energy that feels like start and stop. Mars wants to move forward, and Saturn wants to go slowly and methodically. Mars trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), increasing creativity and a sense of community.

 

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (mind) in Gemini oppose Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion, in Sagittarius. Sun opposition Jupiter t bestows radiance, strength, and overconfidence. It can cause the desire to jump into many ideas and projects at once. (Contemplate the actual work before you begin.) Moon (emotions) opposes Jupiter, which can heighten feelings of positivity and generosity but can also bring a feeling of restlessness. Mercury (mind) I sin opposition to Jupiter, and it accelerates the tendency and desire to make plans and/or move in several directions at once. (Jupiter expands everything, and it heightens optimism. However, it tends to overlook details and the need for hard work.)

Neptune

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Jupiter square Neptune. Venus sextiles Neptune. Mars trines Neptune. Saturn sextiles Neptune. Sun (life) square (tension) Neptune, casting light on our personal darkness and doubts. The aspect deal with false impressions about the self, usually stemming from childhood. Mastery comes from confidence, positive self-esteem, and finding the underlying truth about the perception of lack. Moon (emotions) square Neptune heightens sensitivity and compassion for others, accelerating our ability to help others, and it helps with creativity and emotional expression.  Mercury square Neptune clouds thinking and perception of the “real” world.  Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) squares Neptune can give magically infused and creative ideas, but they will need translation into the practical world. It’s important to see the line between illusion and reality with desires to move forward in life as ideas tend to need a great deal of practical work to come into form.

Venus (love, relationships) trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation) Venus trine (harmonious) Pluto can lead to intensely emotional and spiritual realizations. It heightens our spiritual faith and can lead to positive transformation. Saturn, lord of karma and structure, conjuncts (close to) Pluto, gives a desire to work through limitations of the past while transforming our lives. Neptune (mysticism, idealism) sextiles Pluto, which helps in dissolving old patterns and finding our way in the paradigm of the New Age, and it also aids in aligning positively with collective energies.

Mercury (communication) and Mars (action, male energy) square Chiron (wounded healer). We may learn about thoughts and actions that slow or delay healing.  Mercury (communications) rules our thoughts and ability to communicate. In Gemini, it moves very quickly. Mars in Cancer can bring old resentments and emotional patterns to the surface.

NOTES:

  1. It’s easy for our minds to spin too rapidly with inner planets placed in Gemini.  It’s important to slow down, meditate, and listen to the heart. Find activities that quiet the mind and engage the inner self.
  2. A T-square makes life feel very intense for a few days. Try to relax and take care of yourself.
  3. Aspects with Jupiter tend to enlarge our plans and lead us to ignore the practical and hard work that is necessary for accomplishing them. Choose less instead more when planning the future.
  4. Neptune (mysticism, illusion) plays an important role in this chart. Neptune also heightens sensitivity and intuition. In this chart, Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Jupiter square Neptune, making it necessary to understand where we are limited by lack of self-esteem, the placement of illusion in our dreams, and accepting that our thoughts may be slightly confused in the near future.
  5.  Aspects with Pluto (subconscious, transformation) can lead to higher realizations, dissolving patterns, and working through limitations to create and transform life
  6. Chiron is squared (tension) by Mars (action) and Mercury (thought).  It’s necessary to take a look at mental and physical patterns, which interfere with healing.
  7. Meditate often to align with intuition and to return to the heart.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon are on Gemini 13, “A World-Famous Pianist Giving a Concert Performance”.  The best performances come from individuals who have practiced and mastered a gift.  A pianist shares their talent with a large group of people. The symbol urges us to share our talents and gifts with others. At this pivotal point in evolution, our skills with light, healing, and love are needed by the world—and it’s time to share them.

Mercury is on Gemini 28, “Society Granting Bankruptcy to Him, A Man Leaves the Court with Mixed Feelings”. A person has been judged by others. The past is wiped away, and he must contemplate another phase in life. Perhaps, the symbol tells us to move beyond our mistakes of the past. It’s time to focus our minds on a better future.

Venus is on Taurus 24, “An Indian Warrior Riding Fiercely with Human Scalps Hanging at His Belt”. The symbol evokes an image of revenge, territory, and aggressive action. The lesson is the opposite. Ascending on the spiritual path requires love and compassion—even as we move passionately into our desires and longings. Desires must be accomplished in a peaceful, loving way.

Mars sits on Cancer 12, “A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby Whose Aura Reveals Him to be the Reincarnation of a Great Teacher”.  The symbol indicates to need to use inner gifts such as intuition or devotion to perceive spiritual opportunities. When we find them, it’s necessary to nourish and nurture our findings—as we would with a baby. (The gifts must be nourished before revealing them to the world.)

Jupiter sits on Sagittarius 21, “A Child and A Dog Wearing Borrowed Eyeglasses”. The child puts its glasses on the dog, which may give a human appearance of intellect.  The symbol can refer to those who wear glasses to look more intelligent—or assuming role that one wants to assume in life. It could also refer to imagining or pretending a new identity to manifest it.

More on Manifesting

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

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

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

Follow Your Path

Following your inner path is part of awakening. You find the path by listening to your heart. The heart knows your deepest desires. It brings connection to the inner self.

All positive intuition comes from the heart and awakening. You can learn 1,000 techniques, but the heart leads the way. It knows what you love—and how to take you there. It receives a broadcast from the universe, which is translated through the senses and emotions. When you listen to the heart, you are connected at the right time and in the right way.

All true journeys lead to the inner self. Everything else is simply a diversion. It won’t bring satisfaction, joy, or fulfillment.

Meditation is the best way of listening. Visualization is the best way of creating the next step on your path. (Everything in the universe responds to visuals and feelings; it’s how we create experiences in the physical world.) Visualization plus positive feelings can create rapid change. (If you can’t visualize, find an image. Look at it and develop a positive, flowing feeling.)

Part of the path is learning about the duality of life. You learn what and who brings alignment with the heart. These experiences teach about energy, boundaries, and how to live your life—as well as speaking your truth. Everything is energy, and it’s how you learn to read it.

Courage is required on the path of the heart. You move through fear and limitation to become more of who you truly are. In the big picture, it teaches you to see the larger part of yourself—and to align with it.  It’s how you travel to your inner self.

Through this process, you learn practices of connection. You learn to listen to your heart, and you learn how to find the light, which illuminates your journey.

Small and Simple Methods to Change the World

Sometimes, the world can seem heavy or dark. We feel its weight. We may experience mass consciousness, a pool of the lower emotions and thoughts of humanity.

Fortunately, each of us can help by perceiving the world differently through thought, emotion, and visualization–or by sending light. (Sending light and/or love is quite different when it is sourced through the inner self. It is a pure, beautiful substance that uplifts whatever it touches. The word “love” has many connotations, but love sent from the heart space is a force.

The tips and techniques are about raising frequency, perceiving the power of goodness and love, and gaining awareness of our personal ability to alter the flow of life in a positive sense.

Here are few ideas:

  1. Affirm the power of love and have faith in the universe. Believing in the power of love and light is part of utilizing it. (The “feeling” and faith are part of sending light. Visualization and connection are also important.)
  2. Send light and love to the geographical location of any disturbance. Send light to everyone, who is involved in the problem. Imagine love and light changing and raising the energy of the location.
  3. Focus on peace and let it radiate through you–and out into the world. Allow your personal sensation of peace to flow through thoughts and feelings about a specific situation or location. Make a strong choice about placement of consciousness. Encourage others to do the same. (Teach yourself to feel and emit peace.)
  4. See the opposite of a current situation. See peace instead of violence.  See a safe and beautiful world. Visualize new forests in the place of deforestation. See water for the thirsty and food for the hungry. (Take 5 or 10 minutes to “see” this clearly.)
  5. Believe in the power of spiritual work. Meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and helping others raises the planetary vibration. It does a great deal in creating a better world. The work helps, and the desired change is coming.
  6. Avoid reactive people. It’s impossible to move into a state of self-observation when people strongly express negative opinions. Stay neutral and work from a place of love. Observe and detach from the media. (We’re leaving the time of Kali Yuga when negative vibrations were attractive and inviting. The media makes life seem worse by focusing on negativity. Choose to be different and stay focused on the positive.)
  7. KNOW there is a great deal of love on this planet. We may not always see it, but love and light are the underlying fabric of matter. The light is growing. (A good intuitive can “see” it.)
