2019 Awakening Classes

In this time of awakening, it’s possible to come together as a group for greater evolution. The Awakening Class offers an opportunity to move into a higher level of spiritual understanding by mastering basic techniques of manifestation, which helps in connecting with the Inner Self.

What comes with the class?

  • 27 hours of classes, consisting of 3 one hour classes each month. You receive a written lesson and a recording of class that can be downloaded.
  • Self-study sheets, which help in gaining awareness and aid with inner discovery. You also receive the recordings of free teleseminars and other group recordings.
  • 4 fifteen minute readings with Julia. These session help in clearing blocks, alignment with the inner self, and progress on your path. Students can also email Julia for advice and transmission of energy when needed. (Very few classes offer this type of support.)
  • A Facebook group for comments and questions.

What Will I Learn?

  • The class offers basic techniques to raise your frequency, detach from (and recognize) lower vibrations, and rarely taught Manifestation Techniques. Every class raises your frequency.
  • Some of the topics include communicating with angels, changing your perceptions, animal communication (can be used with loved ones), projecting waves of happiness, success, and well being, following your intuition to create positive change, “speaking” intuitively to others, opening your heart to love, soul contracts, distinguishing between the inner self and the ego, learning how to ask the universe for help, and attuning to the Universe for answers. Additionally, we work on protecting the energy field, interacting with people in your life, and changing your every day life.
  • . The classes teach the art of using energy to create change in life through esoteric and practical techniques–as well as many of the special techniques, which Julia learned from the wolves.

Why Should I Take The Class?

Unlike most manifestation classes, this one truly works. Students have found the love of their life, created financial prosperity, and/or simply felt happier and better about life. Almost everyone finds a greater sense of peace and harmony while improving their life.

When Does It Begin?

Class begins on Wednesday, July 10 and goes through March 2020.

About Julia

Over the years, I have studied Zen, Buddhism, Shamanism, the Kabala, Alchemy, astrology, herbalism, and  yoga as well as meditating for much of my life. When I met real wolves, I began to hear and perceive the voices of plants, animals, and people. I translated these experiences into techniques and understanding about energy that truly works.

Working with New Energies

 

The new wave of energy, which followed the eclipse, increases our power to create and dream of magical creations. Every wonderful quest is accompanied by an assignment. In this case, it’s karma—or the repetition of lower thoughts, emotions, and patterns.Cessation of karma—or repetition of negative events—occurs through a new action, response, or feeling. (In other words, a higher feeling/vibration dissolves old patterns and clears the energy so it can take on the shape of a new and better form.)

It begins with awareness. The average person experiences about 10,000 thoughts each day, and most are repetitive. By becoming aware of the inner dialog (how we talk to ourselves), we can rewrite the statements. In a few days or weeks, we create a new paradigm of positive thoughts and feelings. (It’s best to start with areas of strong reaction/emotion.)

As we release patterns and embrace the light, it becomes more important to use our gifts and balance our physical energy. (The physical body often feels tired and/or dehydrated when adjusting to new levels of light.)  It’s important to know how we use our energy when talking to others, healing and/or helping others, and moving through daily tasks. (Review the past few hours whenever tiredness or sleepiness occurs.)

Seeking the fulfillment of desires requires energy and work. When the universe is changing rapidly, it’s helpful to experiment with techniques and try them at different times of the day. (Everyone has specific hours that benefit their practice most.) We can learn to send light (and color) to problems, create better visual pictures for our current situation in life, and express gratitude for all of the good in our lives.

The practices listed above will have results, but it’s also necessary to change the way that we see ourselves. It’s helpful to spend a few moments recalling our positive qualities, the sensation of laughing and smiling, and the confidence, which accompanies success. Spend a few more moments sensing intuitive abilities. (These are the qualities of the inner self, and they are automatically heightened when held in the eye of mind.)

Also, remember the power of this time. Despite the mixed emotions and confused energies of the outer world, there is a tremendous amount of light. The Turning of the Ages encourages awakening, unconditional love, and the dissipation of karma. In the invisible world, there are many forces on our side. We only have to remember and open to them.

Small Tips:

  1. Ask to become aware of the magical, mystical energy. (The universe will hear you.)
  2. Spend more time focusing on the desired reality than ruminating about difficulties.
  3. When you can’t find a solution and feel overwhelmed by life, return to the heart space. Focus on pink light (unconditional love.)
  4. Send colors such as blue-green, pink, or white light to your problems or negative thoughts. Imagine the thoughts or problems are shrinking.
  5. Ask for the power and light of your inner self. (Repeat until the energy changes.)

Making Manifestation Work for You!

Manifestation is one of the most incredible tools for creating harmony and happiness. The visualization of the heart’s desire activates a special part of a consciousness, which encourages a positive flow of life. (In general, intuition grows, positive feedback from others ensues, and small miracles occur on the journey to the realization of a“wish”.)

It’s a mystery, but manifestation enlarges the “creator” part of human consciousness, which doesn’t occur during meditation. (Meditation bestows connection with the inner self and the universe at large, but it doesn’t engage the creative process with the inner self.)  “Creation” through visualization and small, physical steps may be part of our next evolutionary step. After all, it is important to listen to our heart and follow its path by creating in the inner/outer world.

  1. Creating a happy, positive reality is part of soul work. It actually aligns you with the universe, awakening hidden abilities and revealing unusual and/or unexpected answers. Generally, it reveals a non-logical but fulfilling path.
  2. Positive manifestation is how you connect to higher consciousness including light, love, and higher realizations. It’s also a way of letting go of who you are not and learning to love who you truly are. (Everyone is already manifesting. A conscious practice is about creating what you want.)
  3. With every manifestation, there is a block or resistance within the self. Let’s call it a mistake in perception, which is corrected by inner work. (It’s obvious how other people block themselves; the challenge lies with seeing the self.) Yes, there is a part of you that blocks the manifestation. (Everyone blocks goodness, abundance, and love. It’s part of what manifestation sets free.)
  4. Manifestation can occur in a few seconds or a few years. It has to do with your evolutionary path, practice, persistence, and other factors such as the people in your life, etc. (On this topic, no one ever regrets the work when the manifestation occurs.) Higher vibrations and positive emotions/thoughts encourage it.
  5. Often, intuition develops sharply as a result of manifestation work. Your gifts may become apparent, and new people often come into your life as a result of inner growth. It’s important to continue your work at this point. (These positive results are known as “rainbows” on the path. They are an indication of positive inner work, but your job is remaining devoted to the next step on the path.)

NOTE:  As you master manifestation, it becomes easy to repeat the steps for yourself, others, and the world. It may be part of how you and the world become conscious together. (Think of 1,000 people with accurate manifestation skills who can see and create wonderful outcomes for the world.)

Tips  on Visualization

  1. Visualization is the first step for manifestation. Make a laser sharp image and focus all of your consciousness on it for 10-15 minutes daily. Imagine living in the image by seeing it as a particular time of day, and you’re “living” in the image for 10 minutes or so.. Notice who accompanies you in the imagery and the passage of events in your life. Accompany the imagery with a positive, happy feeling.
  2. Substitute your imagery for lower feelings. For example, if you’re meditating on money, but bills come in the mail, return the image and make it “real”. It can take many repetitions because your negative feelings and experience may seem more real in the beginning.
  3. It can take a few weeks to master the feeling of the manifestation. For example, if you’re visualizing success, it’s working when you feel more confident. If you’re looking for a better body image, it’s creating a change when you feel better about how you look. (Physical changes follow inner projections, but they often begin with emotional and/or mental shifts.)
  4. You should become more aware of the inner self through your manifestation work. You may hear your inner voice or become more aware of when you’re connected or disconnected. You may also notice that life flows in a specific way with a mood change or a difference in your flow of energy.
  5. You will wonder if it’s working—or when it will work. It’s helpful to tell yourself that it will occur when you’re aligned. (It is happening, but it takes time for energy to translate from the invisible to the visible world.)  From this perspective, try to create positive, small changes in your daily routine and ask how you can become more flexible, compassionate, and loving. (The universe loves this.)

Full Moon Forecast: Embracing Change

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Venus

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

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

Changing Energies

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

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

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

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

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

Tips:

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

Planetary Change: Full Thunder Moon

 

The Thunder Moon appears on Sunday, July 9, and its name reflects the heat of the season, which brings thunder, lightning, and storms. It’s an appropriate name for this moon chart, which is weighted in fire (passion) and water (emotion.) The energies can create steam (fire/water and heat/emotion) or can be used to forge instruments such as a sword, which cut through blocks and obstacles.

The planets emphasize the use of emotions for dreaming and weaving a new way of life. (Many of us feel the quickening of the New Age, but we must put it into form by feeling and dreaming on an intuitive level.) We are creating a new world by moving into the sphere of feeling/intuiting while releasing illusion about the life that we had before “time” changed.

Sun (life) and Mars (action) in Cancer encourages flowing emotion that originates in the heart, and Moon in Capricorn gives the practical power to bring dreams into physical form. This moon phase focuses on planning and gathering strength, which occurs through “right” action, originating within the inner self. (The full moon adds light to the darkness, which can bring illumination and understanding.)

Mercury (communications) sits in Leo, a fire sign, which loves drama and the center stage. Mercury in Leo is also brave and courageous, making it a wonderful time to express our inner truth and/or speak from the heart. In this placement, it quickens communications and heightens passion.

Lovely Venus (love, beauty, feminine) is placed in Gemini, an air sign. It highlights thoughts and feelings about love, beauty, and possessions. Venus trines Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra, bringing clarity of thought about objects of our passion. (Venus in Gemini can bring too much talk, short travels, or lack of focus. It can also give positive communication, activities, and intellectual focus.)

Venus

Mars (action, masculine) sits n Cancer, a water sign. Mars in Cancer can flow into dreams; it can also become emotional and way-laid by old emotional patterns such as manipulation or martyrdom. On the most basic level, Mars in Cancer offers the opportunity to flow through patterns and find renewal through responses rather than reaction.

Jupiter in Libra continues to bring balance and beauty to a challenging chart. It finds good fortune through clarity and harmonious thoughts. It focuses on beauty through its harmonious trine with Venus, and its square (tension) with Mars, indicates a preference for higher thought—as opposed to emotional reactions.

Saturn (time, past, karma) remains in Sagittarius, providing a continued focus on spiritual practices and dedication. Saturn squares (tension) Neptune (illusion, idealism), indicating the importance of surrendering the idealism and illusion of the past when weaving a new dreamscape for life in the bold New Age. A trine between Saturn and Uranus encourages the emergence a new world, based on blending the mistakes the old and the perception of the new ages.

Sun and Mars in Cancer trine (harmonious) Neptune in Scorpio. The combination of Sun (life) and Mars (action) trine Neptune can lead to beautiful dreams for the manifestation of a new life. Three planets in water can move our emotions in a lovely, tranquil way—and Neptune retrograde awakens our psychic abilities.

Sun and Mars are opposite Pluto (underworld, transformation), which brings the darkness in our personal lives to the surface. Fortunately, we are developing powerful tools such as universal love, meditation, and knowledge of the inner self—which bring substantial light along with the added gifts of imagination and intuition.

Simple Steps for Manifestation

 

Everyone is already manifesting. The first step is realizing how your thoughts, emotions, and visual imagery affect your life. Meditation naturally alters the flow of visualization as well as the direction of your thoughts and emotions. It softens the negative emotions and opens the heart to love, and conscious visualization activates the energy needed to create a desire.

  • You become more powerful when you consistently meditate and actively visualize. Your meditation and visualization practices actually direct the particles of energy around you into form. (When we don’t consciously direct energy, it takes the form of your lower thoughts.) Your thoughts and emotions take form more quickly and easily when you meditate. You also accumulate or store energy, which makes it easier to navigate through life.
  • Your desires come from a higher source. This higher source (God or the universe) wants you to have prosperity, abundance, love, vitality, and a greater spiritual connection. Creating the positive in your life is part of stepping into your true identity. If you are consistently meditating, you learn how love is the magical substance, which transforms your life.
  • Creating what you want or desire often means “seeing” the opposite of your experience. For example, if you are unhappy in a particular area of life, you must see the exact opposite. If you experience financial loss, you see financial opportunities and gain. If you are broken-hearted, you visualize love coming from all directions in life. (It’s not enough to simply see it. You must feel and embrace it. You make the subjective experience more real than “life.”)
  • Light vibrates at a higher level than “real” life. The rules are different in the quantum field. Lost objects reappear in strange places. Money manifests. You can grow younger, and opportunities appear from nowhere.  The point is not asking how. Trust in the light and universal power. (You don’t need to know how. Stay with practice and act when prompted from the inner self.)
  • If you share your desire with others, you are less likely to manifest it. It’s best to keep quiet. You can always ask other people about their life. If something brings spiritual and physical success, it’s best not to discuss it. Spend your time helping others by seeing good things for them.
  • When you want to give up, you’re probably close to manifesting your desire. There is an energetic rule regarding manifestation. It takes a tremendous effort to manifest the last 5-10% of a desire. People often see success in the early phases, and they feel encouraged in the middle phase. They wonder if it will come into fruition in the last phase. It’s very important to persevere through the last phase. It’s the most difficult step. It requires a great deal of energy, but it is always worth it. And you learn it’s possible to endure through this phase, which typically seems to last forever!

After your desire manifests, you will feel happy and relieved. There is a temptation to put aside the spiritual work, rest, and revel in the results. (Don’t give in.) Actually, it is the most important time to renew your spiritual practice because manifestation is ultimately about drawing closer to the universe and its secrets. It is the realization that happiness, which comes from the inner self, is greater than any material achievement.

Planetary Change, New Moon Forecast

astronomyconstellation

 

The New Moon appears on October 30, and it brings a great deal of mystical energy. It is an intense lunation with Sun, Moon, and Mercury closely placed in Scorpio. The combination of New Moon, Halloween, and three planets in Scorpio brings a strong surge of energy, particularly when positioned with Halloween–the time when the doors open between the astral and physical world.

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner self, emotions), and Mercury (communications) are placed in Scorpio, the sign that rules birth, death, and sex—all different forms of transformation. Scorpio delivers psychic perception, magnetism, intelligence, passion, and determination. In combination with Halloween, the New Moon will heighten our psychic and intuitive powers.

There is a strong emphasis on emotion with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Neptune, and Chiron placed in water signs. Fortunately, Sun, Moon, and Mercury trine Neptune, bringing a mystical note to the chart. Neptune rules the imagination, dreams, illusion, and mysticism. The challenge lies in stilling unruly emotions and focusing on realistic dreams. But this aspect can make life feel very dreamy and lovely.

Mars (assertion, overall energy) sits in Capricorn, a practical earth sign, and it squares Uranus (spiritual change, quantum field) in Aries. Squares often cause tension, and it can feel as if we’re being pushed and pulled between our spiritual aspirations and the frustrations of physical life. Mars square Uranus can indicate instability and quick, impulsive action, but it can also create positive change for more evolved individuals by pushing them into active pursuit of the spiritual path. (Uranus also represents the quantum field where marvelous changes take place in an instant. With Uranus, they often can feel awkward on the initial level, but they are truly for the best!)

Venus (love, material possession, beauty) affects how we feel about our experiences in life.  When Venus is placed in Sagittarius, there is an emphasis on travel, nature, and philosophical pursuits. Venus squares Neptune (idealism, illusion), which can mean misreading other people through optimism and idealism–and not in a practical sense. For the next week or so, it’s helpful to have boundaries in relationships and refrain from financial excess.

Jupiter (hopes, success) in Libra continues to its influence on partnerships, balance, and beauty. With Jupiter in Libra, there’s a need to continually seek balance between the spiritual/physical worlds and the “real” and mystical experiences. This theme runs through the entire New Moon chart.

One beneficial aspect involves Jupiter squares Pluto. This helpful square can aid in finding the strength to move through weaknesses; it focuses on finding our personal power and strength. Pluto involves the will, and Jupiter rules dreams, good fortune, and benevolence. Both planets can positively affect prosperity. It heightens the possibility of creating desires in reality as well as increasing our potential for a happy, positive life.

Saturn in Sagittarius squares and creates tension with Neptune. The square can cause confusion, making it difficult to focus the mind on the task at hand and to waver between our goals and an aspect of current “reality.”  It also blurs boundaries and makes it difficult to draw lines in relationships. Saturn trines Uranus, which brings a balance of change and stability. In other words, we experience a change followed by a period of adjustment.

This aspect helps a great deal with bringing order into our lives after experiencing a heightened state of consciousness, which often seems upsetting—at least, initially. It allows time to create a structure in the physical world for the results of our inner work.

Tips:

  • The New Moon will provide a great deal of energy—particularly emotional energy. When we feel emotion intensely, it’s important to think about changing our lives in a positive sense and meditating on universal love. It’s also helpful to know emotions are like waves; they rise and fall.
  • Take time to dream and imagine wonderful things, but keep them in perspective. When thinking about dreams and desires, consider the time and energy needed to put them into physical form. (Aspects with Neptune can cause lack of realism and a bit of escapism.)
  • Awakened individuals will become more intuitive and psychic with the passage of the New Moon. The placement of the planets and aspects with Neptune expand our mystical qualities. (Make notes and listen to your inner voice.)
  • Mars square Uranus, and Saturn trine Uranus can help with the manifestation of dreams. Both aspects call in the universal quality of awakening and the path of the soul. (Stay flexible and release resistance to change.)
  • Jupiter and Pluto are in a beneficial position to boost prosperity. Meditate on identifying personal potential and power. Visualize prosperity!

Sabian Symbols

This reading is based on Lynda Hill’s interpretation of the degrees of the zodiac. I often look at this part of the chart before looking at the aspects in a chart and reading the forecast because it presents a story through imagery.

Sun and Moon at 8 degrees Scorpio, “The Silvery Moon Shining across a Beautiful Gem of a Lake.” It’s a lovely symbol, representing the yin aspect of life. The lake (water) represents emotion in a calm, still state that reflects light. The moon reflects the sun, creating a balance on earth.

The symbol represents positive change and good fortune, which occur when our emotions and mind are correctly aligned with the feminine. It’s a wonderful oracle for a new moon.

Mercury sits on 10 Scorpio, “A Fellowship Supper Reunites Old Comrades.” This degree brings up the idea of soul contracts, people from past lives, and memories from our past. (The sign of Scorpio can bring up old memories, people from the past, and repetitive situations for clearing and transmutation.) With its close proximity to the Sun and Moon, this process may be part of the New Moon energy.

Venus at 16 Sagittarius, “Seagulls Fly Around a Ship Looking for Food.” This degree can refer to dependence of the sea gull on the sailors and ship. It can refer to finding or taking sustenance from others. It is the symbol for Venus, which can refer to love and loving relationships. It implies the need for boundaries and noticing when others feed on your energy or take too much from you.

Mars at 24 Capricorn, “A Woman Entering a Convent.” It’s a very interesting symbol for Mars, which refers to action and assertion. Typically, a woman enters a convent for inner contemplation and to escape pressure from the outer world. It may indicate a need to move into a higher spiritual state before taking action in the outer world—particularly with Mars square Uranus, which tends to expand impulsive action.

Jupiter is on 11 Libra, “A Professor Peering over his Glasses at His Students.” The image of a professor and glasses invoke thoughts about the rational, logical, and intellectual world. Truly, seeing someone means putting aside the rational world and looking through the heart. Sometimes, it’s important to put aside “reality” and look for the softer eyes of intuition—and the heart.

Uranus sits on Aries 22, “The Gate Opens to the Garden of All Fulfilled Desires.” This degree is included because Uranus is responsible for many of the spiritual changes experienced in the past 4 years. In metaphysics, the garden refers to spiritual world in which everything is perfect and aligned. All of our desires are met at a higher level of consciousness. Perhaps, it refers to the “change” that follows group awakening when we will find ourselves in a whole, new, beautiful world.

Seeking Light

news_global

 

As the world shifts and changes, it’s wise to seek love and light. It’s also helpful to learn small, simple techniques that can raise our consciousness. By applying techniques and focusing our consciousness in a different (higher) direction, we progress more quickly on our path.

  • When we focus on light, the universe responds. When we contemplate light, we receive its support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicity, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.
  • Universal direction comes when we connect with our soul. It may come from meditation, nature, animals, personal love, or creativity. If we recognize the “expansion”, we can create a great deal of good from this place—particularly with visualization.
  • Life responds to our visualizations, placement of consciousness, and attention. When we give attention to negative states or unwanted aspects of life, they expand. Conversely, positive thoughts and visualizations raise our vibration, creating the opposite. (It’s helpful to think of difficult areas of life as energy and to send light to them. We can also decide to see the solution as opposed to focusing on the problem.)
  • Self-observation is a wonderful tool for creating change. By observing our personal patterns, we learn to change the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focus on a positive outcome or different response, and ask the universe for help at a pivotal moment. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for new perceptions and insights in blocked or difficult areas of life. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.
  • By noticing happiness, beauty, positive feelings, and goodness, we automatically bring more of them into our lives. The placement of our consciousness attracts much of we experience in life, which means it’s possible to alter the current of our life by attuning our consciousness to a higher point. (Life moves very differently from this point.)

Energy

Everything is ultimately energy. Energy takes on a thousand shapes and forms. It responds to us.  (Our energy field also responds to others and the overall global field.) Over time, we learn how to interact with the resonance of specific energies. We also learn how to collect it through meditation, yoga (Tai Chi, etc), and cultivation of calm, peaceful emotion.

  1. It’s important to know everything is composed of energy. It takes form by its rate of vibration. On a human level, energy can feel dense and heavy when it is not in alignment with the inner self—or when we travel through resistance. It tends to feel light and supportive when we are aligned.
  2. The energy of the planet shifts rhythmically, causing the experience of highs and lows. By aligning deeply with the inner self, we can stay centered as we travel through the energetic translation of a changing time. (The quality of energy, experienced at a particular point in time, may represent an influence of karmic patterns, geographical locations, mass consciousness, or other people.)
  3. Currently, we are working with the concept of balance. It’s important to stay balanced, centered, and grounded when the energy is continually shifting. It’s good to know our feelings and moods alter with the flow of the current of life. They don’t last forever and become less intense when we stay centered.
  4. It’s powerful to observe the flow of life. Through self-observation, we can note the places, people, and things that lift our energy field into a higher place. We can also note synchronicities and correct intuition. They give hints about our personal alignment. (What indicates your personal alignment?)
  5. If we are persistent and aligned with our spiritual quest, the energy in our personal field will eventually take on a higher form, reflecting abundance, alignment, health, and love

Following their direction, Julia sees and reads energy, including animals, plants, and people. She works with people in session to find their resonance with the soul, clearing patterns and creating alignment with their inner path.
