My Story: Wolves and Manifestation

Julia Griffin, intuitive healer and counselor

 

When I began spending time with wolves on long afternoons beneath the spring sun, I found myself lingering on images of happiness, small desires like a beautiful garden, and funny little ideas about what I wanted in my life. It wasn’t long before I realized that I truly wanted these images of happiness in my life.

Around the time of my discovery, the wolves began lying around me in a huge circle. Twelve wolves would look soulfully into my eyes, and a feeling of power flowed into my body. As they watched me with their golden eyes, the small desires became living images with deep color, sharp lines that reflected the shape and details of the desire, and wonderful sensations accompanied the image of the desire.

In a few weeks, the images seemed real. The dream of my desires — when held by myself and the wolves — began to seem more real than aspects of my current life. Soon after this transformation, the dreams of my small desires appeared in physical form. It’s logical to think that the wolves might have ended the process after my small successes, but they wanted to go deeper into the hidden fabric of my consciousness.

There was a deep joy that accompanied my accomplishments, and I also felt pulled by the consciousness of the wolves. I wanted to understand more. I noticed that the wolves only worked with me on specific desires; they rejected images and ideas that they said were not connected to my soul. Over time, I learned that desires of the heart bring light, growth, and understanding, and they are amplified by love and light.

Spending time with wolves was magical. Wolves love to run, play, and splash in streams. They play games with pine cones and sticks like huge puppies who are fascinated by life. By playing with the wolves, my body naturally grew stronger.

During this time, we went more deeply into my hidden desires, and I learned it was not always easy to create. I faced the contradictions within myself –the push/pull of desires that have been hidden away because of past experiences and/or conflicts within personal consciousness. These desires – the ones, which led to the development of my inner self – required a greater expanse of consciousness and elicited the necessity of discovering truths about myself and life.

As I traveled more deeply into myself, I found that I could easily project imagery to others, and their small desires came true. It was a wonderful feeling, and, yet, I couldn’t share the process or tell anyone. (Who would believe me?) I also discovered how my small wishes for calls from friends, a change in schedule, or a beautiful day manifested almost effortlessly.

As the next two years passed, I became more intuitive. With the wolves’ help, I learned how to read animals through the support of the wolves. Intuitive feelings grew stronger as did my senses, and I “knew” more about life, myself, and other people.

I noticed how bird song, the motion of trees, and the clouds in the sky often changed when I moved into intuitive state. The sensations of feeling alive became intense when I meditated—and even more so when I focused on a desire.

In the next few years, I would learn how I blocked my desires through emotion, thoughts, and beliefs as well as the repetition of specific problems. I traveled through a series of studies to learn how move through them until I could achieve this for myself and others. The wolves helped me to create shortcuts, greater belief in myself and my own powers, and a way of connecting to the universe, which opened my heart to light and love.

This method of following the soul and the hearts’ desires leads to much change. I released many aspects of myself and altered the way that I saw life. (I also learned how to clear myself and others of the past and energetic problems.)

Part of the process is becoming a different person who is willing to find new truths and accept that we truly do create our lives.

Obviously, this is a very brief explanation. Here are a few notes below to help you in beginning your own practice of manifesting

  • See the opposite of your current situation. If you want a new job, see yourself with a wonderful job, surrounded by helpful people. See a big salary and the hours that you want to work. If you want a new love, focus on the joy, closeness, and beauty of another person. For prosperity, see money flowing into your life, and release the perpetual belief that there is not enough. (Problems and desires actually increase our ability to manifest if you use the opportunity.)
  • Commit to the process. Spend time every day with a ten-minute focus on the desire. Make it into a beautiful living image. Let the feeling flow through you. Recall the image whenever you experience the old feeling of “not” having your desire.
  • Work on your energy level. High energy and a high frequency are associated with manifestation. Where do you lose energy? How do you gain energy? Do you feel stronger and happier after a conversation with a friend or drained? Notice the same with exercise, work, and attitude.
  • Meditation helps. A connection with universe is part of the fuel of creating any desire. Intuition is definitely heightened from meditation, and it always points to the next step. (Right action comes from meditation.)
  • Notice contradictions. With big desires that take time, it’s normal to experience a part of the self who doesn’t fully embrace the dream. Observe this part of the self and send light to it. Observation stops the negative internal dialog.
  • Oscillation is normal. Oscillation is the way that our emotions and thoughts flow between the manifestation and our old life. (We may feel fear or anxiety when experiencing this state.) It’s helpful to focus on the heart chakra, which is the center of our being.
  • Awareness is crucial to create change. Notice thoughts, feelings, and changes in the body that indicate motion in the right or wrong direction.
  • Every desire requires a change in our perception of life. You may alter your schedule, throw away unneeded items, or change the way in which you live life. Find a person or teacher to help with clearing when needed. Don’t stay stuck!
  • Focus on courage when taking opportunities, moving in the direction of your dreams, or realizing that your life must change. It’s how you move into a desirable outcome. (Visualization eliminates many steps and opens the door to opportunity, but you must step through the door.)
  • After manifesting your desire, move more deeply into your inner work. Focus on another desire. It’s a part of an evolutionary cycle, which you will discover through repetition and persistence.

Getting in the Gap with Wayne Dyer

Julia: Getting in the Gap is about experiencing the space between our thoughts through the use of meditation and Japa or sound. How does this happen? What happens as we move into that space?

Wayne: Everyone experiences approximately 60,000 thoughts each day and tends to have the same patterns of thoughts over and over each day. These repetitive thoughts are projected or created by the ego.

The ego creates patterns of concepts in the material world that simulate the idea of safety and love, but we are really trapped by the ego. Usually we stay with one thought until the next thought takes over. This process limits us and keeps from experiencing the Source that is in the Gap between these strands or patterns of thought.

To create, we need a pause or gap between the thoughts. The gap or this space is the place that allows us to build, create, and manifest. We can all experience the gap through meditation.

In Getting in the Gap, I use the Lord’s Prayer and the sound ‘ah’ or one of the names of God. The sound of ‘ah’ is not only within the name of God; it is also in the sound of Allah, Krishna, Jehovah, and Ra.

When repeated in a mantra while in the Gap, it keeps us in a prolonged state of consciousness with our Source. Staying in the Gap helps us to experience the benefits of less stress, more peace, less fatigue, more energy. We also look younger and happier.

We move into a creative place in which we can use Japa to attract what we want into our lives. Most significantly, we make conscious contact with God, the source of all energy.

Julia: In Yoga, one lies in sivasana (or corpse pose), a receptive pose at the end of practice to balance activity. Is the place that you describe as the Gap similar to this and other states experienced in esotericism?

Wayne: Yes, it is the same type of practice, the point of which is to merge with the Source, the highest consciousness level where we realign our inner intention to the creative force of which we are all a part.

Julia: Japa is similar to intentional languages, such as Sanskrit, in which the vibrations of the sounds can actually manifest as shapes in sand or salt (yantras). How do the intentional sounds used in the Gap affect the meditation?

Wayne: Sound accesses the dimension between the spiritual and the physical. The Source of Energy can be accessed through the use of sound. Everything vibrates at a certain frequency – this is a law of physics. These frequencies are not good or bad, right or wrong, but the vibratory rate of the frequency can be said to be high or low.

The sounds used in Japa bring about high energy that vibrates at a rapid speed. When our energy vibrates rapidly, we feel good, peaceful, receptive, and creative. Japa is a way of magnetizing the vibration of love and manifesting with this wave. Japa can act as a shield for the lower emotions of others. It deflects the negativity of those around you. We can go into meditation and be free of any response to negative emotion.

Negativity is eliminated from our energy field, and we not only feel good, but we become capable of transmuting the negative energy fields of others. Scientific studies based on the measurement of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that indicates the level of peace and harmony, have shown that exposure to the energy field of those who meditate raises the serotonin levels of the people around them. High energy actually changes hatred, anger, and sadness by elevating it into love.

 Julia: The ego creates projections on its need to feel safe and loved. We experience these projections in 3D or physical reality. I have noticed that many people feel their lives are falling apart when they begin to meditate and manifest. What advice would you give to them?

Wayne: There is no question that many people experience what I call a ‘somersault’ into an inconceivable reality and face the possibility that what you thought wasn’t possible, now is possible. The ego has difficulty letting go of its concept that you can focus on all things that are good, or that you can truly become a magician with real magic.

The ego starts to say that none of this can really happen – you aren’t intended to be this way. Some of the thoughts of the ego are, “It will never happen. It’s too hard. I can’t do it.” If you can continue to go to a higher vibration, then you can move through this resistance by becoming in harmony or one with the Source. In this state, you experience the least amount of resistance to all things.

Another issue for many people is worthiness. Learning to feel worthy and deserving of abundance is one of the steps of manifestation. You also need to realize that good and God are synonymous. The five most important words that you can repeat or say to yourself are, “I want to feel good.” People ask, “How can you focus on good–and feeling good–with the war in Iraq or all of the other things that are happening in the world today?”

My answer is that it is still essential to focus on the Source, the feeling that the world within and without is good. When your focus is on that thought, you project it to everyone, and the energy of peace, goodness, and wholeness is transmitted to the world through the antenna of your mind.

Julia: In the book, there is a list of guidelines for those who have not practiced meditation previously. I think that they are important to have a sense of success when utilizing Japa. Would you tell us about them?

Wayne: There is no such thing as a bad meditation. Even if your inner voice is persistent or loud, the time spent in silence is important. Just observe the inner voice and use it as a reminder to go back into the gap. With time, the inner dialogue ceases. Meditation is like all disciplines in that it requires practice.

Mastery occurs through time, and the practice of meditation eventually becomes joyful. There is no right or wrong time. It is important to create your own schedule that fits best for you, as well as using the time at a traffic light or a pause in a meeting. There is no correct meditation length. Approximately 20 minutes on a twice-daily basis works best for me, but I do meditate a lot. As I said before, even a two-minute meditation is useful. There is no correct posture or place for meditation. Find what is best for you and trust your inner knowledge. Sitting, lying down, or kneeling are all correct postures. Any place is fine. I’m not particular about location, but some people prefer the same posture, chair, and location each day.

Julia: You also list spiritual principles that are used as a focus of awareness during meditation. What are the principles?

Wayne: 1) Become aware of your highest self. This awareness helps you know that you are more than merely a physical creation. 2) Trust yourself so that you trust the wisdom that created you. This principle establishes you as one and the same with the God-force. 3) Realize that you are more than an organism in an environment. You are an environorganism. This principle establishes your power to attract that which you are already connected to. 4) Know that you can attract to yourself what you desire. This principle establishes your power to attract that which you are already connected to. 5) Honor your worthiness to receive. This principle affirms that you are worthy of all that is attracted to your life. 6) Connect to the divine Source with unconditional love. This principle creates an awareness of the significance of accepting your manifestations with absolute love. 7) Meditate to the sound of creation. This principle gives you the tools for vibrating to the sounds that are in the world of creation. 8) Patiently detach from the outcome. This principle emphasizes the need to remove demands and become infinitely patient. 9) Receive your manifestations with gratitude and generosity. This principle teaches you the value of taming the ego while being thankful and serving others with your manifestations.

Julia: To practice achieving the gap, your instructions focus on feeling centered in God, then placing one’s inner attention on what is desired, detaching, having faith and saying the name of God. There are many different ways of focusing the inner attention. Do you mean to do this by visualizing what one wants in detail or simply on the feeling of the desire?

Wayne: You shouldn’t hold a visual image. Focus instead on the feeling of wellbeing that you will have when you achieve what you are intending. In other words, how would you feel if what you wanted manifested? Take that feeling and combine it with the intention. The key to Japa and manifesting is repeating the sound of ‘ah’ or name of the sound of God while holding the intention. The energy should be felt so strongly that you negotiate the presence of your desire by being at one with the same force that you perceive is missing from your life. The first secret of success is to have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. In other words, you may think you want to live in Georgia, but the best place for you to live may be in Texas. Your happiness or success can’t be dependent on an attachment to a person, place, or thing. Intention is not something that you do, but it is an energy of which you are a part. It is a force in the Universe that allows the act of creation to take place. In The Power of Intention, I write about intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention is actually a field that can be accessed for co-creation.

Julia: There are some remarkable testimonials from your readers related in Getting in the Gap about their manifestations. I assume the changes in their lives occurred from the change from a place of ego to the place of the Source?

Wayne: The ego creates all of the impairments and blocks to the divine plan of the Source. Problems exist as beliefs of the ego, which cannot conceptualize the spiritual mind. Our belief in separation from God creates the attitudes that we label a problem. When we can let go of attachments and blocks, the Source creates whatever is needed in our lives. It is also important to create a state of self-worthiness, to know that you are deserving of whatever you ask.

Julia: Why is it important not to tell others what we hope to attract?

Wayne: We disconnect from the Source energy when we begin to tell others about what we desire. The energy frequency diminishes during discussion because the ego becomes involved. The attraction and manifestation should come through spirit, and it is easy to lose the connection through discussion.

Julia: In conclusion, I wanted to ask about a quote in your book, “We can choose the ego when needed and can choose the power of our Source.” What exactly do you mean by this?

Wayne: We can be in the ego state, and that state is finite. The ego state is one of limitation, of hatred, bitterness, sadness. When we die, all of the elements in our body return to the earth. The water in our body returns to the oceans, the minerals return to the earth. What is created in a night perishes within a night. What is finite is limited, and our ego reflects the physical state. The Source is infinite.

We can make a choice to be connected to the Source, and, in that space or Gap, we can encounter all Creation. The Source created not one but millions of Universes. It does not stop with one creation or one manifestation, and its energy is infinite.

When we tap into the Source through the void or the gap, we can become an antenna or a focus point for the infinite. We immediately become receptive, open, loving, and free. There is peace and patience in that space. We immediately know that there is no conflict; everything is in divine order. It seems that these are the only two choices that we can truly make. We can choose the ego with its hatred, bitterness, and fear, or the Source of all creation that lies in the gap between the thoughts and assertions of the ego.

Beautiful New Moon

Image by Griffin Lambert

 

It’s easy to feel the shift through the sigh of the trees, the motion of the clouds, and the alterations in the weather. The planet is shifting and taking us along for the ride.

The New Moon appears on May 11 at 2:59 pm. With Sun, Moon, Uranus, and Pluto in earth signs, it makes for a fertile energy for fostering ideas, working with the soil, resting, or enjoying the beauty of nature. While it’s important to work with plans and keep life in order, this is a moon for a brief period of rest and reflection.

The Sun and Moon form beautiful shapes with Neptune (mysticism) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) Sun (life, light) and Moon (emotion) sextile Neptune and trine Pluto. Aspects with Neptune heighten sensitivity, creativity, and receptiveness. Trines with Pluto increase personal magnetism and intensity. The aspects can help with changing our lives in a positive sense. (Positive aspects with Pluto tend to increase power and energy in general.)

When Uranian energies conjunct and align positively with the sun and moon–our personal yin and yang–we experience the impetus of spiritual energy coursing through our lives. Divine, inspired ideas are sometimes received, causing our lives to flow in a spiritual direction. (Uranus rules the quantum field where odd changes and thoughts lead to greater realization.)

Mercury (thought, communication) is placed in Gemini, radiating rapid thought and increased ability to communicate effectively. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus, aligning the higher mind with the heart. Mercury trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation/structure/karma), and it’s positive with this placement, aiding in our ability to bring order to our thoughts and plans. Mercury conjuncts the North Node (collective goals and commitments), which can give clarity and unity to our collective quests in a positive sense.

Venus (love, romance) trine Pluto heightens love, romance, and sensuality. It intensifies our feelings and emotions about love, relationships, and prosperity. Desire is a part of every quest, and Venus in this position increases it by deepening emotions, aesthetics, and commitment to all types of relationships. Venus square Jupiter can increase the desire to have fun, relax, or forget about work, but the feeling isn’t conducive to growth. (It’s wise to push past it.)

Mars (action, assertiveness, male) in Cancer brings emotions into play, particularly when we contemplate action and moving through particular aspects of life. Our emotions may interfere with right action—unless we simply accept the need to take a step and make changes in the flow of life.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is on the last degree of Aquarius. On May 13, Jupiter moves into the first degree of Pisces where it becomes exalted (the most beneficial position and sign for a planet). Jupiter in Pisces stirs the soul, uniting inner knowledge and expansion. It heralds a time of optimistic thought, new ideals, and positive feelings.

Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus refers to the divisive energies between Saturn (old world structure) and Uranus (the utopian dream). It points to the conflicts between liberal and conservative on political, economic, and social levels. The square involves the conflict between issues of technology and harmony on earth and the physical world.

Pluto is retrograde until October 6. It occurs every year, and the retrograde involves creating boundaries, releasing control issues, and reclaiming personal power. It’s also a good time to review goals.

Tips

  1. The New Moon brings peaceful energy through aspects with Neptune, which rules mysticism and encourages insights into our spiritual nature.
  2. Trines with Pluto increase power and energy, making it a good time to focus on long term goals and personal resources.
  3. Mercury in Gemini bring clarity to the mind and aids with thought and communication.
  4. Jupiter is moving into Pisces, which will bring a feeling of wellbeing.
  5. The New Moon provides a period of rest and reflection, which should be followed by action. Think and meditate about the wisest actions for making long term changes in life.

Creating Change through Visualization

1) Begin with a positive and courageous attitude. It doesn’t matter if you tried and failed in the past. Your perseverance coupled with practice will change your life. In time, you’ll recognize patterns of lower emotion and thought. You’ll transcend them with positive imagery and thought. The beliefs will alter with practice. (It’s good to know this is a particularly good time for creative change. The planets and New Year support it. Many people are awakening and changing at this time, and their energy lends support with your efforts.)

2) When you have a wonderful day and/or a successful practice, compliment yourself. Notice your good work. Notice how you feel. In time, this will help you to discern when you are/are not connected. This teaches volumes about connection with your heart. Build yourself up for making the effort. (If you miss one day, compliment yourself for the previous six days of practice.)

3) Whether or not you feel connected in meditation, believe it is working. Every time you practice meditation, you are literally collecting energy and light. The energy builds over time. Trust in the effort. An opportunity for change will come if you stay with the practice.) Believe the universe is working with you.

4) Everyone has created a big, positive change—at least once. Travel through your memories and choose one of these times to revisit. Relive the memory and feel the burst of resolve and courage, which resulted in accomplishment. You can use this energy again (simply by remembering it.)

5) Do work with your intuitions. Intuitions can be grouped into areas–true and false. Keep a list. Refrain from acting on the “false” intuitions, and act more on the “true” list. (It’s important to know you will receive new intuitions and dreams whenever you reach a higher energy level. It takes time to discern true from false—and the same is true with dreams.)

6) Spend time with people on a higher energy level. Find friends who encourage you and believe in you. When others see the good in you, you feel and believe it. (You don’t discuss your manifestation, but you do enjoy the friendship.)

7) Raise your vibrations by listening to lectures or meditations by teachers on a higher level and/or reading spiritual works. It’s good to read a few spiritual words before bed and visualize awakening in a rested state. (If you experienced a turbulent day, you can actually see everything as better in 48 hours. It usually works.)

If you truly practice visualization, you’ll learn how to project positive energy. You’ll learn to change your inner visuals of negativity to the positive, and you can do it for others. More importantly, you’ll find the sensation of your inner self, which always sees life in a very different and more perfect way.

Awakening and The True Self

 

Awakening is associated with learning about the true presence. It is a process, a method of attuning to the direction of the true presence. There are several steps of the process. The first involves believing and knowing the true self is there.  Rest assured that the true self hears and feels our desire  By recognizing and expanding moments of connection—such as happiness, peace, or joy—we connect more deeply.

A feeling of stillness and peace comes with the true presence. Meditation develops the feeling of presence. In meditation, the true presence mediates between our earthly presence and the universe at large. It connects us to a larger paradigm of reality with universal truths, which are much larger than the laws of “real life.” For example, we can send light or love to a person, without knowing where they are, and the person can receive it instantaneously. (This is transmittal—a method of sharing one’s spiritual truth or abilities.)

One of the indications of success with meditation and energetic practices is the desire for higher vibrations. The feeling of universal connection—the true self—delivers light, expanded possibility, and a deep feeling of love. By culturing and developing this relationship, inner guidance is provided over time.

Awakening is much more than meditating. In my experience, meditation helped in developing an inner calm and a quiet, peaceful feeling. My intuitive abilities also increased. But true awakening came when I saw the inner light in every particle of life. I could see how light lies beneath the structure of every object on the earth–and how the fibers were guided perfectly by the light above. The One Light appeared in many forms. (It’s fascinating to note that the inner light of nature responds to our individual light.) Soon after, I found a teacher in wolves—and I learned to see life in a different way.

After awakening, life is the same. But we perceive it in a different light. We become aware of the true self, which alters our way of understanding life.

In my practice as a teacher, I’ve watched students experience the process of awakening although their work may have begun with a physical problem such as abundance, relationships, or physical pain. Over time, awakening has come to many of them—and manifested as a deep understanding and ability with universal forces. (It does not come to everyone. Some people simply want to feel better or to have a better life. Others devote themselves to sensing the spiritual energy beneath the practices. But awakening does come to those who seek it with heart, body, and soul.)

  • Everyone has a true presence. We’ve all felt it.
  • The True Presence holds the qualities of the soul. It connects us with the universe, the One in All.
  • The level of energy—both physical and spiritual—affects our ability to tap into our true presence. Higher vibrations help in identifying this presence.
  • Meditation brings about connection with soul qualities. It can increase our light level.
  • All spiritual work is part of finding the True Self.
  • Connection with the spiritual self is often the component that makes manifestation work.
  • There is a mysterious, unknown quality in spiritual work. We pursue stepping into the unknown.

Recognizing Your True Self

  • Everyone has had moments of joy, a smooth current of positive happenings in life, strong (correct) intuitions, a sudden knowing of an answer, or unexpected help. A deep connection with nature can also indicate the presence of the true self as well as a spiritual insight or experience. In a sense, we release the immediacy of the demands of ordinary life and move into a non-ordinary life.
  • The heart speaks to us about the true self through our deep desires. What attracts us with a sensation of love and heightened spirituality? What gives an energized state and a deeper feeling of connection with the inner presence?
  • Observation is very helpful in finding the true self. In morning, spend a few minutes observing the actions of the routine. Observe the self while driving a car. Observe conversations. Who is observing? (Your True Presence observes.)  According to quantum physics, when an observer is added to an experiment, the photons change their route. Light responds to an observer. Imagine looking in the mirror. Notice your good qualities. Become aware of your body as you look into the mirror. Imagine you are the person in the mirror, and you are looking at your face and body. Who’s observing?  Your True Self or true presence is always observing. It is always there in the totality of your being. There is always a part of you with a loving presence, which is connected to the universe at large. This part of you is always awake.
  • We can think about the most illuminated periods of our lives. By focusing on them, we can recall the experience of connection. (This is known as the right use of memories.)
  • A feeling of the “unknown” is often associated with the true presence as are love and light. To some degree, the inner presence is experienced as the “unknown.” Mystery surrounds our journey into light and love. On this journey, we discover the light within the self–and how to integrate it.

Cold Full Moon

The Full Cold Moon appears on Tuesday, December 28 at 10:28 pm ET. It’s the last full moon of 2020, Significant movement begins to take place with the planets, as we slowly move away from the aspects of the past year.

Full moons ask where our dreams and plans are leading. Dreaming usually means deciding on a new direction; knowing what we don’t want isn’t enough. We should dream big and let the light of the moon carry us away. Seriously, the full moon usually brings fruition of dreams, but the timing of this moon signifies the importance of fixing on a desire for the entire year. (It can be as simple as becoming more of who we truly are or learning to share more of our light.)

The chart is heavy with earth, bringing the necessity to plan and create in the material world. Sun (life) in Capricorn is about ambition, climbing mountains, and/or creating from a higher place of consciousness. Moon (emotions) is in Cancer, a water sign, increasing our sensitivity and heightening feelings.

Sun (life) and Mercury (communications, mind) trine (harmonious) Uranus (sudden change/quantum field), and the trine brings a focus on individuality, original thought, and the possibility of seeing life from a larger viewpoint. Uranus tends to expand consciousness, thought, and the way that we communicate. It also heightens gestalt moments when we suddenly “receive” or perceive a large truth or universal law. (We may receive insights about how and what to manifest.)

Moon (emotion) trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), allowing us to see through illusion and discover truths about energy, love, and positive emotional connection. Neptune tends to heighten optimism, the intensity of sleep and dreams, and creativity. It can also increase intuitive abilities. On an emotional level, we can more accurately read feelings and perceive the flow of spiritual energies.

Moon (emotions) opposes Mercury (communications) in Capricorn. Mercury in Capricorn is practical, slow, and methodical. Moon in Cancer is emotional, loving, and changeable. Emotions and thoughts may seem confusing and/or conflicted. The two energies alternate with an opposition, or we may feel both at the same time, which can feel frustrating.

Venus (love, partnerships) is in Sagittarius, which brings a desire for adventure and excitement. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars (male, energy). It’s an excellent aspect that brings together the soft, feminine aspects of Venus and the vitality/drive of Mars. It increases charm and creativity. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism/illusion), which can bring inconsistent or changeable emotion, heightened creativity, and laziness—or inspiration.

Mars (male, energy) in Aries remains locked in the squares that brought confusion and tension throughout the year. Mars is slowly moving away from the positions, which relieves tension and pressure as time passes.

Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation, karma) are placed in Aquarius, which hopefully brings new humanitarian opportunities as well as a time for inner growth. Aquarius tends to expand individuality, new uses of electronics (including sound, light, and color), and values equality. Jupiter and Saturn square (tension) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) in Taurus.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain conjunct in the positions that contributed to our current scope of reality, which will change in 2021.

Message from the Wolves

There were times when the wolves spoke loudly to me through howls that snaked through the ear and vibrated through my feet, legs, and consciousness. Their howls carried waves of messages and coded frequencies; which were given to me to decipher. Other times, they appeared in my mind as a clear image that was repeated frequently. In both cases, they had a message to share.

All of nature is more active at the time of the full moon. It is then that the wolves gather to radiate messages to all inhabitants of the earth. It is the time of their message for you. Please listen with your heart for the mind knows not the true meanings of the earth, but the heart remembers and recalls.

We come to speak of three of your gifts—the ability to see and feel beauty, the ability to create through intent and holographic images, and the power to create a future, which differs from the course of the current outer energies. With these three gifts, you have the power and ability to create drastically beautiful changes, and we remind you of this ability now.

Beauty is one of the spiritual aspects of the earth and nature. Everything moves in an incredible symmetry that energizes the body and soul. You see beauty when you are quiet and still. The subtle movements of the wind, the light of the sun, and the calls of birds act to awaken specific energies in your body.

You may refer to this as harmony or peace, but it is truly the heartbeat of the earth. When you meditate on such beauty, you are transformed. You, the beauty, and the quiet become One. A state of connection with the All ensues, and you move into the flow of life, which is available for all.  You may also begin to see the beauty in your life, in other beings such as people, animals, or the light through the trees;

This is part of awakening. Ask to see the beauty, and the universe will answer. Focus on your beauty and see the good within yourself and the world. (When you are tired, ask nature to take the heaviness and focus on the beauty and rhythm of the world.)

We see manifestation slightly differently from the way in which your world perceives it. It is not simply creating money, a house, or the things that you want. It is about learning how to listen to your heart and to form images of what it desires. It is partially self-expression, it is partially listening to the universe and hearing/seeing/feeling the power of its connection, and it is also learning to create and feel images that resonate with your soul.

  • Find your heart, the true essence of you. Think about the universe and its power to heal, to change, and create. Let the energy flow through you.
  • Choose one desire that your heart or soul longs for. Feel the desire throughout all of the cells of your being. Feel how the desire brings peace and growth.
  • See it in exquisite detail with color, sounds, and with all of the senses. Make the image as real or more real than life itself.
  • Focus on it at least once each day. Know the imagery is real, and you will find it if you have faith, connect with your heart and the universe, and practice daily.
  • Time is changing in your realm, and the amount of time for a creation relates to how much you believe and how connected you are with your soul as well as your level of light and love.

Manifestation and holograms are very important because part of the process lies in discovering how your soul thinks and feels. It also teaches you to pull in the higher frequencies of the universe and to substitute new visions and feelings for what was previously considered lack or negativity.

The replacement of one image with a higher one is part of mastery. It teaches the experience of more pleasant emotions and thoughts, which strongly influence your perception of reality. (Many emotions and thoughts are projections of the world that can be transcended, and you have the power to do so.)

Your ability to manifest will be heightened in the coming year, and the lens of your vision become amplified. For this reason, it is necessary to learn more about your inner self and its desires—and to learn to create them in form. Think about beauty, peace, harmony, and the evolution of the current self into a higher form. Allow the universe’s frequencies of light and love to guide you.

Everyone holds an unique hologram of how the world should appear and feel. Your idea of beauty, grace, and love are highly individual. They are wonderfully valuable, particularly if you imagine everyone’s ideal of higher concepts and experiences coming together at one time.

You can begin with the feeling of lightness and wonder that you experience on your very best days—the times that the world seems open. On these days and nights, the world speaks to you with softness and adventure. Your feeling of aliveness expands, and you feel the potential of life. You think about what you could do, what you could experience, and you feel a heightened aliveness. You encounter other and/or new parts of your being. Your mind makes connections where they have not existed before, you become more aware of energy and how it flows, and you receive the feeling of finding and discovering new answers and new ways of living.

All of this was known to you in the beginning—as well as a natural understanding of manifestation. You understood that everyone had a beautiful image or blueprint of the earth, a lovely pattern of desires and natural expression, and you knew part of experience in this realm involved inner discovery of the self and a melding of personal and almost perfect blueprints of the earth.

Through this harmony of understanding, you were conscious of the goodness and beauty of others. You understood the need for each person’s vision—and how it expanded the positive energies of the planet.

At this time, the creation process begins with your own manifestations. If you are aware of the higher collective, it is wise to create consciously. The remembrance of these states is part of the change that each of you desires.

We tell you to work with the creative forces of light, to focus on the heart and love when possible, and to seek the beauty of nature. Much light and many changes are coming to your planet. Use this time to develop your skills and learn how to change the planet through “vision” and love.

Energetic Forecast: Full Moon Eclipse

The Full Moon appeared on Monday, November 30 at 4:29 am ET. It’s a relatively gentle full moon for 2020 although it brings a partial lunar eclipse. Eclipses are similar to flipping the power breaker on and off; the light goes on and off. It acts as a reset, which may be needed at this time.

Throughout the last few months, the forecasts have been challenging, which required a great deal of energy and strength. It’s true that spiritual abilities and powers are often developed during difficult times, which usually involve karma on a personal and/or collective level. However, we can move into mildly optimistic weather between now and mid-January as the aspects slowly improve. (It’s a slow curve, but it’s encouraging.)

It’s an odd chart with an equation of beauty and strength balanced by instability, laziness, and an increase of emotion. Four strong aspects are with Neptune, the planet of mysticism and illusion, which points to Divine when it’s clear—but clouds our vision with other aspects. (The goal is always finding the truth through the inner self or learning more about it when the “weather” is strange.)

Sun (life) is in Sagittarius, the fire sign signifying the spiritual quest and journeys of all kinds. Moon (emotions) is in Gemini, an air sign that rules the mind and communications. Sun trines (harmonious) Mars (energy), and it heightens physical, emotional, and mental energy. Sun squares (tension) Neptune (idealism, mysticism), and it heightens escapism and a tendency for laziness. Moon (emotions) squares Neptune, which increase sensitivity and perception, but the aspect Neptune tends to confuse clear reads. (Neptune can increase psychic perception and artistic abilities with these aspects.)

Mercury (mind, communications) in Scorpio intensifies emotions, mental focus, and the desire to find hidden truths.  Mercury brings clarity of thought and greater mental awareness in this chart. It trines (harmonious) Neptune, stimulating creativity, ability with the arts, and the power of transmitting thoughts to others. It increases intuitive abilities such as visualization. Obviously, it’s important to use these abilities in a positive way.

Venus (love, relationships) in Scorpio is passionate, intense, and fixed on desires. Venus opposes (strong energy moving in 2 directions) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field); the aspect causes erratic emotions and thoughts in “love” relationships and partnerships. Venus trines (harmonious) Neptune, which creates harmony, beauty, compassion, and positive relationships.

Mars (overall energy) is in Aries as it has been for months. It continues to square Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) It continues to amplify the feeling of underlying anger and tension, which is prevalent in the United States. (This continues until January 6.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) combines stability and freedom in a positive sense. Open mindedness is needed for big changes. It’s important to adapt to change rather than fighting it.

The conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto continues as does COVID and the resulting changes associated with it. Fortunately, this will begin to change in mid-January.

Tips

  • It’s an interesting chart with contradictory aspects such as Sun trine Mars, which increases energy, focus, and desire. Sun square Neptune, reduces energy and depletes drive. Moon squares Neptune—an aspect that increases emotional and intuitive sensitivity while clouding the issue and decreasing discernment. (Part of metaphysical work lies in solving contradictory issues within the self and life.)
  • Mercury (communications) supplies needed help with lack of vision and clarity. It amplifies the good qualities of Neptune, bringing clarity, artistic ability, and increased intuitive skills.
  • Mars (overall life energy) continues to bring frustration and suppressed anger with squares to Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld).
  • Venus (feminine, love, relationships) offers strong on and off emotions with an aspect to Uranus (sudden change) and alternately provides harmony and compassion through a trine with Neptune.
  • An eclipse is an on/off motion, and the chart is somewhat the same. We can move from one duality to another—or we can remember who we are. Alignment is key with this full moon chart.
