Personal Evolution: The New Revolution

 

When living on earth, we are either creating our desires and dreams—or living in a world of distortion. When in distortion, we believe “bad” things are happening. When creating, we understand the necessity of creating dreams from good feelings and positive thoughts, which are the result of connection with the Universe and/or God.

In this place, synchronicity and happy events occur, our energy radiates out to the others, who are receptive, and are lifted by our internal focus. We become aware that our heart speaks an universal language, and we feel life respond to us. We also learn to change our perception of life and to see difficult events as a way of returning to connection with the inner self to find answers and new solution.

At this particular point in time and space, our way of dreaming and creating is more profound. We are coming together in higher consciousness, and a positive thought or visualization affects many, people. It can also act as a catalyst for a large group of people to focus on a new dream for planet in which harmony is a strong force that brings new changes and realizations.

When life is not working, it’s essential to change beliefs, perceptions, and visualizations. We all have a place in the heart that knows the answers and offers new images and a new way of being—if we are willing to tap into unconditional love and universal knowledge. As many people awaken and discover their non-ordinary (psychic/spiritual) gifts, we will discover our power to make positive change in the world.

The true revolution from greed, lower emotions, and destruction on the planet comes our inner evolution—the moments when we send peace instead of feeling anger, see solutions in place of defeat, or simply send love to the planet—because these are moments of alignment with the inner self. When we reach the tipping point of higher consciousness, life begins to respond quite differently in the inner and outer world. (Some call these miracles, but they are our birthright—the power to make changes from the point of higher perception.)

What is Personal Evolution on a Higher Level?

It’s a commitment to inner growth, including the development of the ability to observe personal patterns and awareness of movement into lower consciousness such as watching the news, focusing on (and believing) negative reports about the environment, and sharing this information, which can pull others in a state of dis-empowerment and helplessness. (Yes, we need to know what is happening, but we need to counter it with positive visuals and feelings. In other words, we don’t accept it as truth.)

Every person is important. Each person counts. The personal vision of life, goodness, and love is slightly different in everyone. When these positive feelings expand, they illuminate others who are on the path. They also serve expand our personal limitations about expression of consciousness.

We call on the universe and our heart space to find a greater and unlimited truth. We see solutions rather focusing on problems, and we send pink light (love) to the issue when we don’t know what to do or see. We accept that there is always a higher vision, and life responds to the imagery and emotions that live within us.

We see a different planet with harmony, compassion, and higher vibrations. We accept it for what it is at the moment, but we refuse to do nothing (internally). We learn how to hold a higher vision. When we reach critical mass, the changes take place. We saw this with Australia, and we have the power to prevent much of the destruction on the earth—if we continue our quest.

Why Is It Important?

We’ve reached an energetic turning point, marked by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction We must decide which side we’re on—and make a decision. If we want light, we have to work at it, and we have to develop faith in our abilities.

The real choice lies in our thoughts, emotions, visuals, and inner spiritual work. Essentially, we’re choosing every moment to move into love and create good in life—or to continue with lower emotions about what is wrong and seeing ourselves in a helpless place as a victim.

Ultimately, we believe in the power of light—or we don’t. We prove it by following our intuitions, continuing to work on connection with the self and the universe, and knowing that we can find answers to our patterns and problems through visualization and reflection. We hold the faith in our own work, continue to believe in the potential of higher collective consciousness, and rely on the power of inner knowing to follow the path of the spiritual journey. As we do this, we begin to build a beautiful world.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse

 

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse appears at 12:13 am on December 26. Eclipses bring surprises and change with an undulating on-off energy that will pervade Christmas Day and the days following the eclipse. Typically, a New Moon moves consciousness into the void for contemplation, but the aspects of this chart bring high, spiritual energy into play. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are in Capricorn, a sign denoting dedication, persistence, and devotion often to the outer world and (sometimes) to the inner world.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought, mind) conjunct Jupiter, planet of good fortune and expansion. Through alignment of life, emotion, and mind, we can find expansion and discover the heart’s desire. (Our true heart’s desires come from universal sources, and it’s particularly beneficial to connect with them at this time.)

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought, mind), and Jupiter (good fortune) trine (beneficial and harmonious) Uranus, the planet of the quantum field and sudden change. It’s possible to receive gestalt thoughts, deep understanding of universal energies, or simply perceive the goodness of the One Light. It’s also important to think out of the box as Uranus rules originality and new ideas. (One caution lies with Mercury’s square with Neptune. Our thoughts may feel clouded and/or confused. It can take time to decipher intuitions and/or new realizations.)

Venus (love, relationships) in Aquarius squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), which can create over-reaction in relationships—or amplify feelings of heaviness. It’s important time to contemplate the good and valuable aspects of relationships as opposed to acting on irritation and lower energies.

Mars (action, energy, male) sits in Scorpio, which gives power and insight in taking actions and making decisions. Mars trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), and the positive aspect can help in creating alignment with directions and intuitions from the mystical world.

Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (regeneration, subconscious) will remain in conjunction for some time. This aspect is about shedding our outer self and discovering the light within through perceiving the darkness in life and illuminating it with truth.

The caution in the chart lies with aspects with the North Node in Cancer. We’re encouraged to take time to perceive the goodness in others and act in an empathetic manner whenever possible. It’s not a good time to say exactly how we feel; it can wait for a week or two until the stars change.

Several squares are formed with Chiron, the wounded healer. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought, mind), and Jupiter (good fortune) square Chiron, indicating that we’re only beginning to perceive the patterns of the outer self. (Illumination and healing require time and insight.)

Moving Out of Fear and Into Love

Image by Tamara Halabarec

 

There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. First of all, we always feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self.) The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

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

There are also other reasons for feeling fear. They involve mass consciousness, taking a leap in faith, listening to the heart (when it doesn’t make sense), trusting the universe, and resistance.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step.

Take the first step and continue by repeating until it works or morphs into another form. You will find help; the universe will not abandon you.

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.)

If you focus on the inner self as often as possible, you will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3) Mass consciousness resists personal change. Mass consciousness is a compilation–or cloud of energy–based on the lowest emotions and thoughts on the planet. When we feel a lower emotion such as fear and/or anxiety, mass consciousness increases the lower feeling. It’s helpful to ask the universe to delete the connection with lower energies and align us with the inner self.

The universe responds when we ask for help. It hears us more easily if we ask often and meditate.

4)  When we step into love and the inner self, it means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. The universe always has a bigger, better plan.

Let go and trust. If you feel the light, it is leading you. Go forward!

5) It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. “Destiny’ is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Manifestation is the expression of an expanded vision of the beautiful and good aspects of self that originate in the heart.

Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

6) The pressure and feelings of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. The relief is often immediate!

7) Moving into awakening can also bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. 

Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. It’s okay. The new reality will be much better.

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

9) Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.After every leap, we trust the inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this occurs from learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also learn to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.)

Full Moon Forecast

The Full Moon appears on Tuesday, November 12 at 8:34 am. Full Moons bring emotional intensity, heightened energy, and fruition of desires and dreams.

While the chart is powerful and supportive, retrograde Mercury crossed the Sun on 11/11, which altered our thoughts and energies. (It will take time to understand the new knowledge, gifted from the Sun.) 

The Full Moon focuses on feminine energy with Sun in Scorpio, a water sign, and Moon in Taurus, an earth sign.  Water and earth signs are feminine and receptive, and they urge acknowledging emotion, finding understanding of internal states, and creating change in the physical world.

Moon (emotions) and Mercury (thought) are in opposition, causing conflict between emotions and thoughts. Moon in Scorpio brings hidden emotions to surface, which may override old thoughts about “comfortable” aspects of life. This aspect definitely causes tension in relationships and life.

Sun (life) and Mercury (thought, communication) sextile (positive) Saturn (karma, time), bringing stability and security to the chart. Moon (emotion) trines (harmonious) Saturn, balancing emotion with practical concepts.  Sun and Mercury trine Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and this allows opening our lives and thoughts to divine guidance. Moon trines Neptune, which can lift emotions to a more spiritual level. Venus (love) squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and the square can cause misconceptions about love, but it can also open our eyes to beauty.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) conjuncts Galactic Center, the point of light, love, and higher knowledge in our universe. Galactic Center is in the center of the Milky Way; it radiates aspiration, energy, and motivation. This placement offers an intense but wonderful wave with the intent of higher evolution and expansion.

Sun (life), Mercury (communications), and Neptune (illusion, mysticism) sextile Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which can bestow the will and resourcefulness to make and/or intend powerful changes. Moon (emotion) trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), heightening sensitivity.

Mars (action, energy) in Libra sextiles Jupiter, which heightens strength and good fortune. Mars squares Saturn (karma, time), indicating the need to review the past and the cycle of time before taking big actions or making huge plans. Mars opposes Uranus (sudden change, transformation), reinforcing the need to move slowly and think clearly—specifically with actions. (in short, continue with long term plans but wait with new ones.)

 Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune, which can dampen hopefulness and optimism. (The lesson is about finding hope and faith within!)

Tips:

  • Retrograde Mercury in Scorpio crossed the Sun on Monday. Although it aligns us with the higher mind, we can’t process the information until Mercury moves direct. Hold onto your brightest thoughts and ideas. Put them into form when Mercury moves direct. (Moon opposes Mercury, scrambling emotions and thoughts.)
  • There are MANY helpful aspects with Sun, Moon, and Mercury (life, emotions, and thought). Aspects with Saturn ground emotions and thoughts with practicality and planning. Aspects with Neptune open the consciousness to intuition and the mystical world. Aspects with Pluto give strength, will power, and the desire to transmute life into a higher form.
  • Mars (action) remains a bit blocked with frustrating aspects to Saturn and Uranus. It’s fine to act on well laid plans, but it’s important not to act impulsively.
  • Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) conjuncts Galactic Center. It’s a wonderful time to mediate and ask for alignment with light.

Autumn Message from the Wolves

My spirit journeys frequently to the wolves, to their odyssey of sight and sound, and their secret messages that they share at particular times of the moon. This message is for you and others like you who wish to grow.

Our voices come on the wind, traveling around the planet through time and space. The great whales and dolphins capture the sound, repeating it through the water until it resonates in the heart of those who can hear.

Later, the sound travels through the branches of trees and throughout the density of the earth. It is an old and new song, which tells the stories of beautiful moments of the past and awakens future possibilities. You hear it in special moments when the world is still. Perhaps, the sun shines on you, the wind carries the smell of childhood, or the earth wraps you in her harmony.

It is also the song of the coming time when all will change. You feel the changes now through the undulating rhythm of the light, which alternately exhausts and energizes you. It is a wonderful, challenging time when everyone and every living being is asked to find the dreams in their heart and bring them into fruition. Perhaps, you already know it—or you do now.

At any time, you can draw energy from the earth. Think of the trees as your lungs, the water as your blood, fire as your spirit, and the earth as your outer structure.

The invisible world or the akasha holds secrets, but it is also the substance that you impress with your hopes and dreams. It responds to you and to us–it is a way of making changes through your spirit and mind. It is also a pool of endless energy when approached with a pure heart. Energy is the source of positive change, the flow of life force.

The earth energies are changing as well as the geography of the planet. The light moves to new points, old lines are recharging, and energy coalesces in new places. In the new energy, much is changing. (Species are changing and coming back; the geological plates are moving very slowly.)

Nature reflects our feelings and internal states.  We can see the reflection of group emotion in nature. Rain and thunder storms often cool emotion, and the wind pushes it away. Earthquakes allow pressure to escape. Frozen landscapes give time for reflection and rest by limiting activity. Few of us take time to truly interact with nature by listening to her song or even partaking of her fruits. 

Crossing the Bridge of Consciousness

There is a bridge between this world and the next. In the next world, the energy is lighter and more balanced with less pull of old negativity. You cross the bridge through intuition by listening to the true self and by hearing the language of your heart.

Intuition comes in a flash, connecting you to a higher world where everything behaves differently—and larger changes take place. It creates a bridge from this world to next by leading your feelings and thoughts into a higher point.

Over time, your feelings and thoughts change; they alter your beliefs. And the intuition comes more strongly, leading you into a new place. In the space of intuition, you can know many things such as what others thinking, the flow of the energy at large, and how the trees are moving—or how your destiny intertwines with the next world. (You already know these things It’s is simply about awakening to your knowledge.)

It is time for bravery and courage. It’s time to take a step into the new world—to grow and learn–and know we are sending energy to help you find your way.

Moving Into Oneness

Moving into Oneness comes from awareness of the inner self. It grows through listening to the heart and moving into light.
 
When we move into Oneness, we connect with everything and everyone on the planet. We feel the interconnection with the All.  (I practice this exercise several times every day!)

A Super New Moon!

The New Moon appears on August 30 – just in time for the holiday weekend. It’s a Black Moon, occurring as the 2nd New Moon of the month, and it’s a Super Moon, which means it’s close to the earth. It’s also one of the best moons of the year.

Typically, the New Moon brings a time of the void when nature becomes quiet, and plants and seeds refuse to grow. Time is best spent in inner contemplation, reaching into the darkness (or unknown) for new information.

However, this Moon is different. It’s quite expansive with many trines with Uranus, the planet of quantum and/or sudden change. Uranus can also bring miracles, thoughts of the highest form, and amazing change when the planets form positive aspects with it. And they do!

Of course, it’s not just about the energy. It’s also how we use or don’t use it for growth. On this note, it’s wise to take time for inner reflection and ask for and/or visualize a big, positive shift.

In this New Moon chart, many planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto) are found in earth. All of the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) are in discerning Virgo, represented as the high priestess who holds the key to unseen mysteries. Virgo likes order and attention to detail, and discernment; it emphasizes health and hygiene. Virgo can also act in overly critical way. (If you feel critical, it will pass in a few days.)

However, the New Moon will not feel particularly heavy or earthy because Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) plays a huge role in the chart. Uranus can cause chaos or upset, or it can be sparkly and generous with a touch of genius—as it is in this chart.  When Uranus is at its best, it encourages discovery, adventure, and exploration of the new and unknown. There are many trines, composed of the inner planets, that ask us to jump into the future in a new way.

Mild challenges occur in aspects with Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion. None of the energies are particularly “bad”, but it’s good to have awareness about them. Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars square Jupiter.  Sun square Jupiter can bring opportunity, but there’s probably some aspect of the self that requires change. Fortunately, the aspect gives the power to push through the block. Moon square Jupiter heightens emotion and brings a tendency to exaggerate, and changeability. Venus square Jupiter heightens creativity and optimism. Mars square Jupiter bestows courage, enthusiasm, and energy.

Lovely trines are found with Saturn (karma, time). Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars trine (harmonious) Saturn. Trines with Saturn can aid with practical insights, applying our inner knowledge in a practical way, and developing our capacity for organization and management. These are helpful aspects, helping in adding stability to Uranus’ exciting, flashing energy.

Venus (love, relationships) opposes Neptune (mysticism, illusion), making it feel easy to project love into relationships that don’t work–or being taken in by the illusion of love. Mars (male, assertion) in opposition to Neptune can bring discouragement and/or a feeling of weakness about pursuits in life. Venus (love, relationships) trines Pluto (underworld, transformation) and adds depth to passion, love, and relationships.

All in all, it’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with the spiritual world and discover a way of expressing that inner knowledge on the physical plane. With many planets in earth, the message is to find a new way of living, thinking, and loving—and to create a life that matches it.

Staying Centered in a Changing World

It’s challenging to stay centered, peaceful, and balanced when the energies of the world change several times each day. Empaths and healers feel the world turn and surge with global events and strong emotions of mass consciousness. We also feel the people around us.

The “light” energy amplifies everything. The energy is challenging, and it’s important to tap into the inner self on a regular basis to find our way.  Otherwise, we lose touch with the inner self, which acts as a light on the path.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Part of the influx of light is known as the acceleration and amplification. It makes time seem to pass more quickly, and we feel everything more—if we continue our soul work. There is a good reason for it. When we feel ourselves and others more, it amplifies everything in our system—the positive and the negative. When our negative emotions and thoughts feel stronger, we want to change them. When our positive emotions become more intense, we seek this state. In other words, the strong currents of emotions and thought can lead to our higher self.
  2. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work.)
  3. Every few hours, there is a surge and ebb of global emotion and thought. If we know the surge or ebb of energy and emotion comes from the outer world, we can seek the solace of the inner self. We can focus on love, forgiveness, or simply see a better world. (Anything with a higher vibration will do.) Becoming conscious of the input of lower consciousness helps in understanding how our emotions and thoughts are influenced by others.
  4. We are touched by everyone’s energy. As we gain awareness of this, we can shield, alter our relationships, or choose to release specific people in life. Ultimately, we have to choose people who help lift our vibrations and/or look at others with compassion.
  5. Freedom comes from moderating our impulses and emotions by becoming incredibly aware of energy. Our true source of energy comes from the inner self and the universe. It’s necessary to cultivate it to have the strength and insight to navigate through life.

NOTE: If you are practicing meditation daily, you’ve probably noticed how moods and emotions alter throughout a given day. The lower moods appear, disappear, and return during the day, and it’s helpful to accept and observe them. You also learn that the inner self brings stability, grounding, and focus—as well as peace and love.
