Nature: Time of a Feminine Age

Image by Josephine Walls

According to the indigenous grandmothers, we are moving into a different time of new beginnings when everything will work in a new way. Feminine energy will preside in this new era, replacing many aspects of the masculine, which required constant action and “push” in the physical world. It emphasizes “feeling” the way into right action as opposed to the old mantra of “just do it”.
Indigenous cultures were based on feminine principles and involved connection with the earth. (Simple exercises such as meditating while focusing on a landscape or tree were used to bring in a desire.) There is a strong focus on sensation and emotion, including the necessity of “knowing” if a step resonated with the heart, particularly when taking an action.
I learned about this method from wolves. They often spent an entire day focusing on a desire until it took form, or an opportunity occurred. (It works well for humans, too.) The earth supports putting thoughts in creative form. It’s an ancient, beautiful way of being, which is likely genetically encoded. It’s a state of oneness with the earth and sky. Beyond this, it’s a slower way of being that involves time spent looking at trees and skies while learning to love what is within us—or as the Native Americans call it, “walking like a living prayer.”
Part of the motion into the feminine comes from the placement of 7 of the 10 planets (astrology includes the moon) are placed in earth and water signs, which are feminine. Stillness, connection with nature, and meditative states are associated with indigenous cultures. By lifting our minds and emotions to a specific frequency, we heighten the likelihood of manifesting a desire. The desired result is harmonious and uplifting.
Personal Lessons from Nature the Current Time
1) I don’t need to travel into the world — or to do as much as I thought.  (I’m also happier this way, and I have more time for walks and higher thoughts.)
2) I can buy most of what I need on the internet. Without driving or flying, we help the earth.  (Staying home made a huge difference in the natural world in only a few weeks.)
3) The natural world is slower and more beautiful than I remembered (before the shut-down.)
4) I can’t see my friends or family, but I can send love and light to them every day. It’s a wonderful practice that I plan to continue.
5) Without diversions, I am much happier and focused. Nature is showing us a new way of life.
Here are a few, simple ways of tapping into the feminine.
1) Think of the generous aspects of nature and the universe. See the universal energies as a force that wants to fulfill your desires. Reflect on the good parts of your life and see more pouring into your life.
2) Sit by a tree. Focus on sending out thoughts about your happiness, how you could feel better in the present moment, and a better future. Ask the tree to extend the feelings into the future.  (Trees also help with intuitive communication with loved ones and friends.)
3) Meditate outdoors. Feel the sunlight moving through you like universal light. Hold a visual and ask nature to correct it. While in this process, notice the beauty and sounds in the world. They help with harmony and balance.
4) Go for a walk. Notice how your thoughts and feelings change with the landscape. Notice the colors and shapes that are uplifting for you.
5)  Thank the earth for her goodness and express gratitude for the physical body. Notice how your body works and functions well. Take joy in it.

April’s Pink Full Moon

 

April’s full moon is a pink moon, which appears on April 7. It’s another super moon with intense energies. The term “pink moon” refers to celebrating the color of flowers and the emergence of spring. The chart brings both harmonious and challenging aspects; it brings potential for growth with personal aspirations and inner growth. A Libra moon suggests reflection on relationships of all kinds.

The Sun (outer life) is placed in Aries, a fire sign representing individual initiative, new beginnings, and a passionate quest. It squares Jupiter and Pluto, which are currently conjunct in Capricorn, creating conflict and tension between our individual quest and the current collective experience. (How do we retain our personal lives while acting – or not acting – within the collective experience of isolation?)

The lovely Moon sits in Libra, an air sign ruling balance with relationships and others. The underlying quest involves alignment with the inner self while speaking from the heart-and listening compassionately to the other person. (It’s not easy!) The Moon conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (good fortune), indicating the importance of communication, beauty, and harmony. Air symbolizes thought, and the mind can act as a positive vector, particularly when aligned with intuition.

Moon also squares Jupiter (expansion) and Pluto (underworld, subconscious), bringing emotional patterns, hidden life information, and secrets to the surface. We may have insights about insecurities and emotions—or we may fluctuate between higher frequencies and lower consciousness.

Mercury remains in Pisces, a water sign that can amplify illusion and all forms of emotion. In another sense, it can heighten intuition or align our mind with the illusion of fear. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Neptune, heightening the mix of emotion and thought. Mercury sextiles (mildly positive) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Essentially, Mercury can heighten negative illusion and/or help with reading higher energies. (Balance is the key.)

Venus (feminine, love) moved into Gemini, and she will stay in the position through June. Gemini is the air sign of the twins, ruling communications and short journeys. When Venus is placed in an air sign, it benefits clarity of thought. Truly lovely aspects are formed by Venus in this chart—as a saving grace. The emphasis on love is perhaps a sign of the right direction in an unusual time although it relates to personal love and beauty. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars (action, male), Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). The trines may aid in our quest to find optimism and higher frequencies in a trying time.

Mars in Aquarius, an air sign ruling group consciousness, mixes thought and action. Mars loves action and initiative, but Aquarius rules mentality and unique approaches. Mars squares (tension) Uranus, the planet ruling the Age of Aquarius, group endeavors, and collective consciousness Our actions can become erratic and sudden (impulsive), or we may be guided by the quantum field.

 

Emphasis on Collective Energies

The current conjunction between Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) is partially the cause of the “new”, strange reality. Saturn brings balance through limiting the flow of specific energies, and Pluto brings hidden energies to the surface. (The two, together, rule and cause collective change.)

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) expands everything that it touches, and it recently joined the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, enlarging the overall energy. As it moves away from its close approach to the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in a few weeks, we may feel relief as a positive spin away from the current environment.

Neptune (illusion, mysticism) sits Pisces, a water sign that can amplify the flow of emotions and energy in a positive or negative sense. By moving our consciousness to a higher point with positive visuals, we may find a way to concentrate the flow of energy in a positive sense – such as last weekend’s global meditation.

Overall, the chart indicates the energies of this time as well as specific methods for seeking release and redemption of its lower forms. Love and positive focus of consciousness are two simple steps that can accomplish a great deal.

Full Snow Moon and Continuing Change

 

February brings a quieter forecast with Mercury retrograde, beginning on February 16. In the past, retrogrades tended to indicate a period of rest, but it’s very important that we stay on track. When we can’t actively pursue our desires, we can meditate on them or continue working on them in a quiet way. In other words, persist!

(There’s tremendous pressure from the planets for change, growth, and a new way of being. It’s accomplished through action motivated by the inner self–as opposed to running around and trying to do everything. When we feel the “push”, we can recognize it as a planetary push, detach, and reconnect with the inner self, which is how we create spiritual change in the inner and outer world.)

The Full Snow Moon appears on February 9. It’s a super moon, meaning it’s closer than usual to the earth and will feel more intense. Sun is in Aquarius, the humanitarian sign of the New Age. Moon is placed in Leo, a fire sign ruling the heart, which ignites passion and desire for love, romance, and drama. Moon trines Mars (action) in Sagittarius, urging direct action and assertiveness. It encourages optimism and hope.

Mercury (communication, mind) is in Pisces, the sign of the last age. In this position, it encourages reflection and union with mysticism. The planet conjuncts Neptune, which can connect us to the unseen world and convey information, particularly relating to spiritual mysteries. Mercury trines North Node (the spiritual path or endeavor) in Cancer, encouraging insights about empathy and emotional understanding.

Venus (love, partnership) moved in Aries, creating a bolder, fiery tone with relationships and feminine issues. Venus squares Mars, continuing the friction between male/female energies. Venus conjuncts (close to) Chiron, the wounded healer, and we may heal ourselves by opening to love, redefining our feelings/beliefs about love, and taking affirmative steps in a romantic direction.

Mars (assertion, male energy) in Sagittarius boosts our desire to move ahead on our quest. Fire signs bring creativity, energy, and motion. Mars (action) trines Uranus, emphasizing bold action, but it squares Neptune, meaning our vision is not always clear. We may feel the push to move forward but lack clarity with our sense of direction. (If the opportunity appears to act – as visualized – take advantage of it. Ask advice on other issues.)

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto, the planet ruling the underworld, transmutation, and power. It opens the opportunity to use natural abilities and talents to create achievement. Pluto rules all types of power, and it’s wise to focus on endeavors that benefit the self – and the all. Personal pursuits for power can bring our “undoing”. (This aspect may well apply to current political and global trends.)

Saturn, planet of limitation and karma, squares (tension) Uranus (quantum field, erratic change). Saturn likes slow motion, and Uranus loves rapid change. There’s a combination of very different energies with pressure to change our lives while remaining loyal to responsibilities and creations from the past. It’s about expanding while working with the structure of our current lives. It can feel frustrating and confining, but the object is about finding balance—learning to grow in one’s present circumstances. Saturn and Pluto are conjunct in the relatively rare aspect that can bring awakening of higher consciousness and the power to build a more benevolent world.

Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) squares Pluto (underworld, transformation), dredging up hidden truths from the dark rivers of the subconscious while bringing old patterns of repetition to the surface. It’s wonderful when we can see it and make constructive change; it’s painful when we feel it but can’t grasp the underlying truth.)

Tips:

  • Several aspects in the chart exert influences that can give the feeling of a “push” and the sensation of life moving faster than usual. Slow down and review when the feeling occurs. Align with the inner self and think about what’s truly important to personal growth and the pursuit of dreams. Let go of the rest.
  • It’s important to take action when pursuing goals. A slower period of reflection begins on February 16 with Mercury retrograde. Currently, Mars encourages action, but our vision can be clouded by the Mars/Neptune square.
  • Mercury in Pisces combines emotions and thoughts with a spiritual focus.
  • We’re in a period of intense change that involves higher and lower consciousness as indicated by Jupiter conjunct Pluto and Saturn conjunct Pluto. It continues throughout the year.
  • Venus (love, relationships) is very active in its placement in Aries. It asks for assertiveness with love and creative reflection.
  • Jupiter increases the force of our natural talents and pushes us forward through its conjunction (close to) Pluto (transformation, power, subconscious). It’s best to keep the good of “all” in mind when forming goals.
  • Saturn (time, limitation) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) are square, creating a conflict between responsibilities to our present life and the urge to force change.
  • The Full Moon will feel intense. Plan accordingly.

 

Sabian Symbols, from Lynda Hill’s work

Sun is on 21 Aquarius, “A Woman Disappointed and Disillusioned, Courageously Facing a Seemingly Empty Life”.  The image depicts a hopeless review of a meaningless life; however, lives often change when we look at them with courage and a willingness to alter our beliefs. When we focus on the good with gratitude, overcome old perceptions, and approach possibilities, life improves.

Moon sits on 21 Leo, “Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap Their Wings” symbolizes overreaching and forgetting to work with the limitations in our current life. In metaphysics, whatever doesn’t work is a lesson in rewriting our desires and goals—as well as approaching life in a different way with a new, more practical perspective.

Mercury is placed on 9 Pisces, “The Race Begins: Intent on Outdistancing His Rivals, a Jockey Spurs His Horse to Great Speed.” It can certainly feel like a race with the current pressure from the outer planets; however, racing to our goals is not a good answer. Reaching goals on a spiritual level involves consistent change, practice, and discipline. Feel the desire but do the work.

Venus is on 2 Aries, “A Comedian Entertaining a Group of Friends”. Part of love is bringing humor and lightness to life. Fun actually lifts our vibrations. Bringing lighter vibrations can help others and create a communal feeling of unity, particularly with those we love.

Mars sits on 26 Sagittarius, “A Flag-Bearer in Battle”. The symbol refers to acting on conviction, representing a cause, and/or promoting truth. Currently, the symbol may ask if we’re ready to move ahead on inner convictions and create a new life.

Jupiter is on 16 Capricorn, “School Grounds Filled with Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits”. Interaction, movement, and physical vitality are implied by the symbol. It implies instruction, fun, and awareness of energy between the two sexes.

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.
