Creating Change from Within

 

When working on personal dreams, it’s to commit a specific amount of energy to helping the world through action, word, and vision. A few ideas for passive change to help the self–and the world–are listed below.

  • Focus on a personal feeling of peace. Notice how it feels and expand this inner state to the surrounding area. Imagine everyone and everything encompassed n a wave of peace. Feel the peace like waves in an ocean
  • Send pink light to every particle and atom in the space around you. Pink light is unconditional love, and it lifts everything in its sphere. (Sometimes, it’s easier to send pink light as opposed to “love” because we color the feeling of love with many personal preferences.
  • It’s important to learn to pause whenever we feel discordant energy between ourselves and another human being. It’s helpful to pull back our energy and briefly see the other person’s point of view or feeling. From this place, imagine seeing their inner light. (This is simply to clear energy and remove them from our energy field.) In general, pause whenever emotions are strong. Pull back into the inner self.
  • Separate from mass consciousness (lower global consciousness, including emotion) often. The entire world is changing, and it moves between light and darkness. Ask for alignment with the inner self when life feels heavy and difficult. Focus on the feeling of the flow when accompanied by a wave of happiness. (The overall energy should change in an hour or two.)
  • Learn to see the opposite of the difficult side of life. The images in our mind travel very quickly as we become more psychic. If we focus on a negative, world happening, we actually intensify it. It’s helpful to see the opposite of the difficulty, move into the heart, and ask the universe to provide the feeling of an answer. (Of course, it’s also helpful to send the feeling of the answer out into the world. Somewhere, someone is meditating and/or praying. They will receive the feeling and amplify it.)
  • Spend time in nature. Ground the body and take time to see the perfection of leaves, flowers, and wildlife. This practice eases the pressure, aligning body and spirit.
  • Practice self-nurturing. Rest when energy is low; act when energy is high. (There is a new energetic rule. It’s not helpful to send energy or help others when energy is low. It’s the opposite of the Piscean Age. Keep the cup half-full at all times.)
  • Release judgement when possible. It’s fine to have an opinion or belief, but it’s helpful not to inflict it on others.
  • Practice faith, hope, and courage. It takes faith to create strong, positive visions. It takes courage to continue to see them, and it requires faith and hope to make a consistent effort. But it’s also how we learn to believe in ourselves–and our inner work.

Ascension through Sacred Geometry

Presented courtesy Spirit of Maat

Thomas Morton was recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the understanding and application of Sacred Geometry. Here, he talks of how, through utilizing sacred geometry, we can create a vortex of energy that acts as our own inner temple. Upon entering that sacred space in meditation, we can access the deep silence, becoming empowered to recognize lower thought forms and ascend in consciousness and being.

From there, he teaches, we become alchemists, transmuting intent into physical manifestation.

Julia: Just to begin, could you explain for our readers the importance of Sacred Geometry?

Thomas: Most of us who have an interest in Sacred Geometry have a burning desire to understand Creation — to know how everything comes into existence. When we have the desire to understand these things, the path takes us to higher vibrations and frequencies, colors and sounds, as both are one and the same, being but different expression of Energy.

In studying the Sacred Geometry of Creation, we first understand that creation takes place in what is known as “no time and space,” and that it then enters into dimensionality through the intra-dimensional doorway known as the Golden Mean Spiral.

Why do we utilize Sacred Geometry? The purest answer is because it creates for us the frequencies of a controlled place of deep silence, the place of The Silent Watcher, that has no beginning or end. The Golden Mean is the doorway to this place known as “no time and space,” where we can interact with Creation. It is the sacred doorway to the intuitive, the space to where we once again are God in action.

This sacred space is also an environment of a frequency of great understanding within the universal All That Is. En masse, we are creating a tremendous amount of discordant energy on the planet, and in order to again become the Master Presence that we are, we need to cease participating in the thoughts and feelings that give rise to discord. The closer we become to the Creator, the further we move from the analytical mind, and the more we awaken the intuitive mind.

This is our destination: to unlearn, as the Tibetans state it. To once more allow the intuitive to be the directing force, and allow the outer, or analytical, mind to take a step back into its divine plan of carrying out the intuitive.

So the student uses Sacred Geometry to bring in a controlled space for the purpose of entering into the Great Silence, where we then have a choice of which thoughts and feelings we will participate with. The focus and discipline of Sacred Geometry sustains the silent mind. We go into that space in order to send discordant thoughts and feelings into the Light.

Julia: Could you compare the sacred space within a physical temple to the one we create within? How does the sacred space in the physical temple come into being?

Thomas: If we take it as given that there is energy acting within the pyramids and temples, then we might first want to look to the cause of that energy. Every effect has to have a cause, so where does the energy come from?

The greatest source of energy on the earth is electromagnetic energy, energies of outer Creation that actually surround the planet and reside in what is known as the magnetosphere. In essence, the planet is a giant gyro. A solid core that spins faster than the outer shell creates this electromagnetic energy.

It’s important to understand that this energy has the acting energy of the electron, or the intelligent part of the atomic structure.

Seeing this, we can now see that the temples are like antenna to this magnetosphere. They call in a vortex of magnetic energy.

When the electromagnetic energy vortex enters the temple, the electron is split away from the magnetic wave and both are utilized to create three harmonics within the temple itself, and there are in turn three chambers in the Great Pyramid that express these three different frequencies.

The King’s Chamber represents the spiritual, and has the quality of Silence, the place of everything that was, is, and will be.

The Queen’s Chamber is the mental chamber, where for example you could write an equation one mile long and recall it all.

Finally, the catacombs, or the place of the dead, is the place of alchemy, bringing energy into the physical plane or the third dimension. New plant and animal life, for example, could be created here without disharmony, through this great alchemy of love.

So the Great Pyramid represents these three frequencies of energy and the harmonic creation of new forms of life.

Zero point — the controlled space I talked of earlier — is always present in the Great Pyramid. And we also utilize this controlled space in many of the other temples, like Macchu Pichu, that were erected as ascension schools.

The alchemy of creating new forms of life in the ascension temples took place at the time of the solstice, because at the exact moment when the energy switches either from the longest or the shortest day, there is a Zero Point where it was possible to bring these new forms onto the planet harmony with the All That Is.

Likewise, there are three energies or frequencies that are used for creation: Force, Thought (knowing), and Love. In the third dimension, these three aspects of creation are usually experienced as the experience of physicality, mind, and Love. These are the energies that actually surround us in the seen and unseen.

Julia: What about emotional energy?

Thomas: Emotional energy is not noted here because that is simply a combination of feelings and thoughts.

So we can see the representation of Being One with the Universal Creation or All That Is.

But the most important message is that we have a temple within each one of us. All of the great masters have told us of this temple. It is the Temple of the Heart.

All of the great outer ceremonies are simply representational of what we can do and become within. Ascended Master Jesus the Christ said of the miracles he had performed, “All this ye can do, and more.” The true work for each of us is within our own temple.

Julia: How do we create sacred space? How do we apply this in our lives?

Thomas: Sacred space was created before the temples. It is a state of creation itself. We can create sacred space in our own temple. If we pray or meditate in one place regularly, we then create a vortex. By vortex, I mean “spinning energy,” whether it is positive or negative. The personal vortex is also a Golden Mean spiral. The spinning of the chakras creates a doorway into no-time and space. If we can create the doorway, then we have access to the Great Silence.

So we utilize Sacred Geometry to create a sacred space from which to ascend to the point of being Love in Action, in the Now. We can express this ascended God presence in the third dimension by applying or being in the Great Silence. We cannot be generating discord and applying Love divine at the same time. We have to be able to sustain the Love in the Now, and extend it out into the dense world of Creation. The same doorway of the Golden Mean is used in this respect also. We become God in Action.

Julia: What tools do we gain within this sacred space for living in the dense or physical world?

Thomas: The ego, or analytical mind, has been taught that it is in charge, and this teaching must be unlearned. Being in the sacred space teaches us to move beyond the analytical mind and into the intuitive mind. We can encounter the intuitive mind only in sacred space, and from there we can learn to identify the analytical mind.

The analytical mind co-creates doubt, fear, and resistance, as well as the patterns that we play through our mind when we are operating out of habituated behavior, on automatic pilot.

Of course, the analytical mind resists entering this sacred space. We have to realize that we will have doubts and fears about the “inner knowing” or truth that we encounter in sacred space. We have to have the faith and courage to stay with the inner knowing, even when we don’t see proof of what we experienced and felt.

We will still feel doubt and fear, but once we realize that they come from the lower mind, the analytical mind can know that these instead of participating with these thoughts and feelings, we need to transmute them.

The Akashic Records say that the lower, or carnal, mind sprang forth at a certain point in time. This tells us that it is finite, for only finite things have a beginning. Infinity has no beginning. But finite things also have an end. As well as having a beginning point, the finite mind also has an end point. For this reason, it is much more afraid of us, who are conquering it, than we are afraid of it.

And until the lower mind reaches its end point, it will continue to create as much chaos as possible, for that is how it sustains itself. It gets its energy by stealing ours.

When we generate lower thought and feeling, it goes to the lower collective. This is why we must watch carefully within our minds, standing guard not to participate with doubt. For example, the lower mind will definitely seed doubt about what I’m saying here, for it does not want to be found out. It constantly puts our focus on outer things and illusions.

As a result, we need to actually crave discipline. No matter how much resistance we have to meditating each day or being in the sacred space, we need to apply discipline to every aspect of our lives, including eating and breathing. And we need most of all to stand guard on our consciousness.

So we have to have a plan for meditation, a plan for the expression of the true self.

Julia: How is alchemy used in the sacred space? How can we use this practice in creation?

Thomas: Let’s say that we realize the need to meditate and create a sacred space or altar for meditation.

So we do this. And after we accomplish meditation in this place, we have actually changed the energy of that place. We can walk by it and allow ourselves to feel that the energy really has changed.

This is alchemy, the actual change in a physical space caused by spiritual intent.

Alchemy in the mental realms occurs when we seek the silence and transmute our thoughts. So we begin with sacred space and enter into the inner calmness. We then go to work standing guard, transmuting thought and feeing until we reach the Great Silence. And once, through inner work, we have remembered how to reach the Great Silence, we begin to apply this discipline in the Now — in every moment of every day.

When we start to go into deep silence, there will be a feeling of resistance. If we realize that this feeling is a temptation to procrastinate, then we know that this feeling needs to be transmuted.

So, for example, we may remember that we need to make a phone call or feed the dog or balance the checkbook. So we then realize that, of course, all of these things must be done. But right now we are learning not to participate in these thoughts. We are realizing that these thoughts and feelings, which have misled us for so long, are attempting to take us out of the Now. So we stop going along with them.

The best permanent solution I have ever experienced is to be in the great alchemy of lifting up and transmuting these energies, as they seek to intrude, back to their perfect form and color.

So, to sum it up: When we go into this place of silence, the outer/lower mind tries to intrude. But we can identify the thoughtforms of the outer mind and learn to “tag” them when their energy intrudes.

And once we have identified them, we can stop them. For example, we can ask God to take the thoughtform and send it up to the Light. If we do this long enough, this transmutation process will actually become an auto-response to the thought patterns of the outer mind.

If the thoughts are stopped, we can go into a place of true silence. The Light is silent. Peace is silent. We have to move into the silence Now. For there is no other time but Now. We can only be in the silence if we are in the Now. If we are not in the Now, we are out of the silence.

The lower mind is not in charge. It just wants to be. But the analytical mind was actually created for the purpose of carrying out, in physical reality, the commands of the intuitive God Center within each one of us. If we recognize the thought forms and feelings of the lower mind, we have free will and choice. If we don’t recognize them, then we have no choice.

This Now, which is within the heart, is the sacred space of the temple within. This is the place at which we can reach Zero Point and create. We can actually command thought through our feeling center and qualify the particles to act. This is the alchemical act of precipitation. From this point, there is no question as to what we are, what we are becoming. We have willed it; it is as certain as knowing who is coming to dinner because we have invited them to dinner. When we create something at this level, we simply expect it to show up in the manifestation plane.

This is important. Expecting what we create to show up is energy brought into manifestation. It is like looking at the thunderclouds and knowing that it will rain. There is no question.

The laws of Alchemy say to “become the accomplished desire,” to feel it, to be it. When we become the accomplished desire, and do not participate with doubt and sustain the application, we precipitate the desire.

When we command the desire through being centered, we literally command the particles that compose matter to act. This is alchemy — the transmutation of thought into the material plane.

We will be tempted to believe, through the action of doubt, that the accomplished desire will not show up or manifest — that the process didn’t work. But the truth is always that if we don’t participate with doubt, fear, or worry, we will experience what we are intending to manifest. There is a delay or response time — it could be seconds, minutes, or days, depending on the amount of knowing that was applied to the manifestation and our level of previous attainment — but it must happen.

The more you apply these universal laws, the quicker things come into manifestation. But we never wait for the manifestation, for this would mean it has not yet happened. No matter what we may think, God within has acted, and it is up to us to hold this knowing.

In this space/time between universal and manifest — before the precipitation — it is important to transmute all permutations of the lower mind, and this means any feelings or thoughts that relate to doubt, fear, or worry.

All lower things, when raised, pass through the violet flame. These thoughts can be eliminated by sending them through the violet flame, transmuting them, and staying in the place with the accomplished desire. The accomplished desire will then manifest.

This is alchemy. It is how it can be used to manifest the Creation in the sacred space in the temple. We are all temples with sacred space. We can all transmute our feelings and create our desires through this application of alchemy.

We can move dimensionally into ascension through this same application. This is the greatest alchemy of all, to ascend. We do not need workshops, or teachers, or temples any more. We need only to remember what we have always known. We enter into this knowing in The Great Silence.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Thomas: Anyone can create and sustain sacred space. We are all equal. You can remember to transmute the outer or lower mind that will seek to intrude. Whatever you need is here through the application of these Universal Laws.

These things of God are here for our use. You must learn to become disciplined to apply them. Our desires will change from wanting what we want to wanting what we need. We will be again in the dance of life.

We are all here to serve. If you know it, that’s great. If you do it, that’s even better.

For some of us, the ascension process makes us want to run away. For others, we ask what we can do to be of service.

If you are a priest or priestess — someone who understands the Light and Silence — then hold this Love Light of Truth in service so that it is available for those that are moving into this consciousness.

Thomas Morton awakened spiritually at an early age and has been in service ever since. His life has been focused on healing the planet’s energies. To that end he works with both beginners and advanced lightworkers, and travels the world, speaking to groups and working directly with the Earth’s grid.

New Year’s Super Moon

The full moon appears at 9:24 pm on January 1. It’s a super moon, close to the earth and energetically intense. Many of the planets are placed in feminine signs, and there are two Grand Trines in water (emotion), indicating harmonious motion through life and calmer emotions.
The first full moon in January is called the Wolf Moon, referring to the stamina and strength of the wolf, which is needed in times of cold and difficulty. The wolf pack is based on the matriarchy with a female wolf that leads as the alpha. (This is a very feminine year, beginning with a full moon and 12 full moons to follow. The original calendars, based on feminine, earth energy, contained 13 moons.)

 

The Sun is in Capricorn, an earth sign represented by the goat, who can ascend to great heights. Sun (life, outer world) conjuncts Venus (love, beauty) and Pluto (power of transmutation, underworld.) Through love (Venus), it may be possible to use power (Pluto) to transform our world. (Of course, this works best by focusing on the heart.)

 

Moon (inner world, emotions) is placed in Cancer, the mother of the oceans and life. The Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (assertion, male energy), Jupiter (good fortune), and Neptune (illusion, mysticism, dreaming). The beautiful trines encourage flowing emotion, harmony and good fortune with action, and creative dreaming (manifesting.) (After weeks of charts filled with fire, the full moon chart is restful.)

 

Mercury (communications, mind) sits in Sagittarius. It trines Uranus, forming a harmonious aspect between the lower (Mercury) and higher, cosmic mind (Uranus). It’s possible to receive information for greater understanding of self and the world. (It’s important to discern between the ego and inner self as Mercury squares Neptune, which can distort the “read”.)

 

Venus (love, beauty) in Capricorn conjuncts Saturn (karma, limitation), which can make love (temporarily) feel heavy and/or difficult. Venus also conjuncts the Sun, which is uplifting, and it conjuncts (close to) Pluto, which can give the power to transmute old limitations into a new, more powerful outlook on life.

 

Mars (male, assertion) is conjunct (close to) Jupiter in Scorpio. If the emotional intensity of Mars in Scorpio is used properly, it can flow through limitations/blocks and bring good fortune. Mars also trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), heightening sensitivity and creativity. (It’s another wonderful aspect for manifestation.)

 

Jupiter (good fortune, benevolence) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), offering positive, creative energy. The aspect increases our desire for magical, mystical experience, and it offers an aura of hopefulness about life. Jupiter also trines Uranus (new age, quantum field), opening our consciousness to innovative and positive ideas.

 

Fruition, fertility, and growth are conferred by the full moon. With most of the planets in feminine signs (water and earth), it is a chart for growth of emotions, hope, and creativity. It’s a lovely way to begin the year!

Five Ways to Find More Light

 

With current shifts in the world, it’s not always comfortable to live in a sea of change. It is possible to shift our consciousness to a higher point–and vibrate above the lower frequencies. It takes practice and repetition to do anything, but life feels much better when we remember how (and where) to change our consciousness.

  1. Nature always helps. Sit under a tree or go for a walk. (The needles of evergreens provide cleansing energy. Hold them between the fingers for 30-60 seconds.) Ponder the expanse of sky, and focus on the line between the earth and heaven. This line provides a great deal of energy. Ask nature to help by easing pain and lifting the spirit. (Nature listens.)
  2. When afraid and/or depressed, focus on the inner self. Think about connecting to the universe–and the sensation of light. (Focus on the feeling of sunlight, if necessary.) This simple act repels the darkness and alleviates fear.
  3. Become neutral. Learn to refrain from judging others–even when they’re wrong. Staying neutral means observing the situation and pulling back from reaction.
  4. Remain patient about life. The light is growing even as the darkness becomes apparent. The end of one cycle is the beginning of another cycle. It’s wise to surrender to the process while envisioning a new level of happiness and peace. (This is true on a personal and outer level.)
  5. Take time to love the self. Reflect on the many expressions of love, which range from fierceness to tenderness, unconditional giving to strong boundaries, and self-nurturing to surrendering to the flow of life. Oddly, loving the self (in the right way) is helpful in developing the power to send love and light to others.

Message from the Wolves

 

In this brief message, the wolves speak of the new world. I can only say that I learned the art of intuitive communication from them by following similar tips and words. Their words were true, and they never led me astray.

Our name comes from the root word, Lux—or Light. We are spreading throughout the world. We had no desire to become extinct or flourish; it is simply the state of the universe. As speakers of light and bringers of dreams, we have much to say.

The new world is here already, woven between layers of the old world and the substance you refer to as reality. It is like 3 landscapes interlaced. It comes in swirls like morning fog or gentle rain, which disappears in a few minutes. By afternoon, you barely recall the fog or rain.

The realities mingle and overlap like threads in a tapestry. You travel between the ordinary and the new world where life follows the flow of your thoughts. It may occur for a few seconds, minutes, or hours, but there is a subtle difference in feeling—a depth of perception.

You walk between worlds as you travel through your day. In moments of awareness, you perceive the motion into the new world where intuition/thoughts/emotions grow stronger, and the world briefly grows more beautiful and subtle—responding to your wishes and energy.

You will know when you are there for life will look slightly different. Maybe, you will perceive the big changes in the world. Perhaps, you will simply perceive beauty and sensation on an intense level.

There is no real time in this dimension/space. Everything responds to thoughts and emotions when creatures and humans open to this space. Time alters and lengthens, the hours of the day change, and the sun and moon move on a new course.

This reality is not available to everyone—only those who listen and act on the heart. It is not enough to see light or study metaphysics or act intuitively; the key to the next world is something completely different. It is for those who are ready to leave behind the heaviness of this world and wander into possibility.

A great dream, an adventure, is awaiting for you. The dream is new; it is lovely. Everything changes including the geography of the earth, the motion of the continents, and the flow of your mind. Who will go there? Those who truly know light and the rhythm of their soul. It is not available otherwise. It is only through the rhythm of joy and loneliness that you can possibly hear your soul.

 

We share our thoughts because we want to help:

  • You will have more energy if you draw it from the earth and stars. Ask the earth to nourish your body. Sit with the grass and trees. Notice the shapes. (All of the shapes of nature sustain you.) See yourself as sustained and nourished by nature each day.
  • Imagine that much of history and science is not true. At a higher frequency, the laws change.
  • Learn to pull back your energy from the world. (When you think a strong thought, you immediately feel everyone else who shares the thought. This explains much of world emotion.) Release negative, needy people. They are not needed in your life.
  • Use your power as a creator. Notice the good. Rewrite the negative into a positive form.
  • Focus on your dream of life with all of your heart. Imagine life as lighter, happier, and more fun. (We dream often, and we are dreaming you into our world.)
  • Notice when life feels lighter, brighter, or different. During these times, you touch the new reality. It is very useful to send light, see life differently, or observe beauty.
  • Find the position of the sun and moon. Watch their motion. Observe the changes in light and darkness in the physical world.
  • You learn to transform, create, and manifest by desiring this state more than anything. It is the natural order of creating change through the lens of the soul and the voice of the heart. It is why you are here. It is as simple as knowing that you have the power and deciding to use it.
  • You were born as creators, to create anything that brings balance, harmony, and joy. Use your gifts.

Full Moon Forecast: Embracing Change

 

After a week of stormy skies, the moon appeared, almost full, and luminous—changing the night sky into a beautiful shade of deep blue. Under these soft skies, the full Moon appears on Sept. 6, and Mercury (at last) moves direct, offering clarity of thought and enhanced communications. Only three planets are in retrograde, extending an opportunity to move forward with plans and development of talents and gifts.

The prevalence of fire continues in this chart. Fortunately, Sun (outer life) and Mars (action) are placed in Virgo, an earth sign. Earth offers grounding, vitality, and connection with nature, and Virgo can represent a mystical priestess attuned to the sublime knowledge—or the human quest for perfection, order, and detail. Either way, earth signs open us to the sensuality of our physicality and the beauty of nature.

The Full Moon rises in Pisces, a water sign. Full Moons bring fruition, rain, and germination, so emphasis on water (flooding, fertility, the feminine, emotions) continues.The Moon (inner self, emotions) conjuncts (close to) Neptune, the ruler of seas, the astral world, and illusion/mysticism. The placement brings a mystical, intuitive element to the chart. With  the Moon/Neptune conjunction, dreams/delusion and truth/illusion are part of the influence. It’s beautiful, dreamy, and confusing.

Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces square Saturn (time, karma), which may result in sensations of loneliness and/or pensiveness. Sun opposes Neptune (mysticism, idealism), making it difficult to separate illusion and truth. On the positive, Sun trines Pluto (underworld, transmutation), and it can bring regeneration, strength, and the power to overcome obstacles such as those listed above.

Mercury is now direct. Placed in Virgo, it forms a Grand Trine with Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening/sudden change.) On another level, it can represent applying lessons from the past with awareness (awakening) to create a new future—or using symbols of the past to create sudden upsets and deter awakening. It’s all about where we put our thoughts. (Mercury and Mars (action) are conjunct (close), so our thoughts are likely to incur action and/or a material result.)

 

Venus

Venus is warm and fiery in Leo, which rules the heart. This placement benefits relationships and monetary matters. Venus (love, material goods, relationships) trines Saturn (lessons, karma), which can give a clear view and good judgement about partnerships and relationships. It’s a stabilizing aspect and increases energy for dealing with trying aspects of relationships.

Mars (action, masculine) is in Virgo, a calmer placement than Leo, which was experienced in recent weeks. Mars forms a lovely Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus. Again, the planetary energies focus on lessons of the past and the creation of the new world. (Contrast and compare Charlottesville and Houston.) These energies emphasize the importance of acting to share our inner truth, encourage others and send positive messages.

Changing Energies

Jupiter (good fortune) opposes Uranus.  (Jupiter expands, and Uranus seeks change.) In this opposition, Jupiter enlarges our need for a new realty while Uranus brings electrical bolts of energy. The opposition is apparent in the outer world with flooding, fire, and earthquakes. It involves social change, alterations in the workings of relationships, and revolution. Additionally, Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto (underworld), which concerns the earth’s resources. It is about finding and creating justice with monetary systems as well as protecting the earth.

Almost every planet in the chart aspects Saturn, indicating the importance of revisiting the past to identify important values and discard worn-out principles. For example, we’re weeding away structures from the Piscean Age while hopefully mastering unconditional, mystical love with healthy boundaries. Saturn also teaches the importance of continued effort and devotion, which activates the power of the higher collective mind.

Uranus, the electrical planet of awakening and sudden change, trines Mercury, Mars, Venus, and North Node. While the energy is positive, it’s also amplified by the trines, which means manifestation takes place more quickly than usual. Thought (Mercury), love (Venus), and Mars (action) compose part of the dynamic, so stay centered as much as possible. Uranus’ conjunction with North Node in Leo (spiritual direction) indicates the value of following the heart and releasing desires of the ego.

Sun (life) and Saturn (time, karma) square Neptune (illusion, mysticism), diluting and confounding our ability to read life accurately. Illusion and truth are intertwined in these squares, and it’s not unusual to feel confused or misled. But it will pass. (It’s helpful to ask for a clear mind and the presence of truth.)

The chart represents many aspects of global life including intense emotion (Moon/Neptune), increased ability to manifest through thought and action (Grand Trines with Mercury/Mars), balancing the past and future (aspects with Saturn/Uranus), and confusion–which is part of planetary change. It is possible to derive both power and insights at the time of Full Moon, but it’s also necessary to continue the simple tasks of meditation, centering, and focusing on the heart.

Tips:

  1. The outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, are aspected in this chart, meaning the energies refer to awakening and change in the outer, global world as well as within the self.
  2. Sun and Moon square Saturn, which can cause feelings of sadness or disappointment about the self, success, or the state of the world. It will pass in a few days. Keep the faith.
  3. Grand Trines with Mercury and Mars tend to put our thoughts and actions into physical form more quickly than usual. Take time to focus on inner desires and their outcome. Review before taking action.
  4. Aspects with Neptune can cause difficultly in discerning truth and illusion. Life can feel confusing and/or inspiring, depending on the placement of consciousness.
  5. True safety comes from aligning with the inner self and the universe. Many good “things” are on the way. Remain patient.

Helping the World

 

Our light is one of the best things to offer to the world when the energetic and physical weather is stormy and chaotic. We send light from our heart and soul, and it alters everything it touches because light is the highest vibration in the universe.

We also alter a great deal when we learn to see and feel life differently—as opposed to the lower, negative vibrations, which are learned from our culture. When we see solutions and send love, life changes. When many of us focus, the solution often comes.

  • It only takes a few moments to send light, love, or a prayer. When a place, situation, or person appears in the mind, send light. Sending light is always useful. (Of course, the “wattage” of our light is a determining factor in any outcome. For this reason, every spiritual and philosophical system urges mediation, prayer, and inner contemplation as these practices raise our vibrations. Obviously, it’s helpful to practice and connect before sending light.)
  • When we are in the path of a storm or earth change, it’s helpful to protect the area around us as opposed to attempting to alter the weather. We can see everything as secure, peaceful, and safe around us. (A ten mile radius is easiest.) Using sacred geometry such as a pyramid or a circle is also useful.
  • When viewing photos of people in distress, see the opposite. Send comfort, peace, and love. Visualize the area as the opposite of the photo or image. (Seeing or employing the opposite energy balances energy. It is one of the foundations of Eastern medicine. For example, treat hot with cold when a person has a fever.
  • Detach from any fear about earth changes or global unrest. Instead, focus on the part of the self that is always connected, safe, and peaceful. Think about how we are all divinely connected through the inner self.Imagine support and help (on the physical plane) flowing into the situation. Angels and higher beings come in many forms, ranging those who are inspired to help, miraculous synchronicities, and alterations in frequency and consciousness. (When we cannot physically help – save through donations and prayers – we can visualize many positive changes.)

Developing Our Skills

Part of spiritual development involves helping others because we are connected by threads of luminous light. As we connect to light and learn to send love – as a pure energy – our personal frequency soars, and our vibrations increase. Of course, we can only send love and light correctly when our intention is pure with a true desire to help and heal.

  • Light is best extended to others and geographical locations when our vibration, the pulse of our entire being, is high. A state of connection can be created through meditation, observing nature, and listening to the inner self.
  • It may require many repetitions. Part of practice is patience. Send light and love whenever the mind moves to a particular situation—personal or global. Release any negative thoughts such as worry, identification with pain and loss, and desire for a particular outcome. (The universe knows where the energy goes and how to best apply it.)
  • After sending, ask if the meditation was effective—or if it requires adjustments. (Learn to listen for a yes or no.) Be creative and work to change imagery and feelings. Notice your feelings for the next hour or so. (Sending light correctly should feel energizing and supportive. Sending too much energy can feel draining.)
  • People, who meditate and focus on the heart, are more powerful than they think. Imagine 1 million people sending light to an area for an entire day. It does have an impact.
  • As we learn how to effectively send light to others, we develop many skills, which are useful in personal growth and cosmic evolution. As always, the universe adjusts our efforts, makes corrections, and sends suggestions. Listen.
