The Lion’s Gate

 

 

Think of the Lion’s Gate as a cosmic blast of solar light. The Lion’s Gate symbolizes the annual height of  solar energy, emanated by the astrological sign of Leo. It refers to a process of purifying the fabric of our consciousness and recreating ourselves with a higher light level. It’s a quick process because the Lion’s Gate is open between August 8 and August 12—although the energy will linger for a week or more.

The Lion’s Gate occurs during “Dog Days” or when the dog star, Sirius, precedes the sun on the horizon. The Great Pyramid of Cheops was built to align with the rise of Sirius to mark the importance of  a time of rebirth—an opportunity to move more deeply  into our divine blueprint and resurrect the True Self.  As a result, the solar year began on July 23 with the motion of the Sun into Leo (solar) energy, and the celebration of light ended on September 15.

Solar light is associated with the masculine energies such as spirituality, universal love, courage, creativity and pure light. Light cleanses, and it brings spiritual change. The light is somewhat yang; it can feel over stimulating on a mental/creative level if we don’t take time to rest and reflect. For those who are open, it alters DNA, raising our capacity to receive more light into the body and energy field.

The light brings endings such as harvest, but it also illuminates new beginnings. This means opening up to the universe and expanding what we think is the fabric of life. For example, everyone has problems, large or small. There are desires and objects of our longing; yet, they are part of the human experience—and are eclipsed by the universal light.

Becoming who we really are (and moving into greater love) always constitutes the universal movement. When we surrender to these concepts, the solutions to our problems often emerge effortlessly. In other words, we are the answers to our problems. The answer lies in shifting our consciousness to a wider vision. It lies in accepting who we truly are—and finding a new paradigm.

Light also acts a quickening and cleansing agent. It cleanses our thoughts, emotions, and shows us the darkness in our lives. Part of the darkness (for all of us) lies in resonating and identifying with the recurrence of the shadows. What if we didn’t believe in the necessity of negative experiences? What if we could alter our lives instantly?  Who would we become if we stepped more deeply into the light? What if  positive events happened more quickly? (There is a “feeling” beneath the questions. Expand it if you feel it.)

There are inherent challenges in raising our light level. Sometimes, we think about what we leave behind us or worry about who we will become. Other times, we focus on our journey or how it will work.  It’s good to keep in mind that visualizing, asking questions, making wishes, or believing might lead us to fulfillment with far less effort.

A few tips:

1)      Fire brings purification and cleansing. What do you want to leave behind in your life? It can be as simple as fear or as complex as a whole portion of your life. Trust it’s for the best and take a step ahead.

2)      Fire expands things. It can create a huge flame. When contained and tended, it emanates warmth. Where is fire needed to burn the dross or nourish the inner being?  Where is creativity or illumination needed.

3)      Where do you lack answers? Let the fire blaze a trail. Follow the light. Or imagine a pink flame, which represents love, burning away the darkness in your life.

4)      Write an angel letter, detail your desires, and burn the letter. Imagine the flames taking the desires up to the light. As the light descends, it brings your desires into material form.

5)      Don’t burn out with too many projects, requiring creativity, will power, and thought. Balance by resting, meditating, or napping in a dark, quiet room.  Lions love acting in a lazy way and playing throughout the day. (Don’t indulge.) It’s possible to burn out when we lack true focus. Look honestly: see if your life is balanced.)

6)      Let the solar light lift you up. Act with courage and perseverance when moving into desires and dreams. Let the light expand your purpose, gifts, and aspirations in the coming year.

Creating Our Reality

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way. (At this point, it is part of the collective Aquarian awakening when many people transform the world through their individual effort.)

Shifting Upward

Shifting upward into a higher state of being is both a desire and a choice. When we shift upward, we can move out of lower patterns and feelings. We can receive more light and allow life to move into a flow that provides answers and insights.

When you practice this exercise, you are aligning with your evolved self, the self of the future, who already knows how to make these changes. By simply listening, tuning in, and thinking about it, you’re moving into this state of consciousness.

Shortening the Swing

In spirituality, the “swing” is well known. It involves riding the wave of emotion, the swing of thoughts, and motion of consciousness from low to high. It’s a part of spirituality, which is rarely addressed; it happens most often when you ascend to higher levels of consciousness.

Higher consciousness lifts you above the swing—and into a place of love and centering. In this place, it’s impossible to feel the swing, but it takes a lot of practice to stay there consistently. Alchemy refers to this practice as shortening the swing.

Here’s a meditation to help, but please read the blog first! https://InstantTeleseminar.com/Events/116471847

  1. It’s realistic to know you’ll experience the swing of consciousness. It can occur because of your geographic location, planetary events, family karma, and personal patterns. It’s helpful to observe your lower feelings while knowing the feelings won’t last forever. (If you apply some of the techniques listed below, you’ll find resolution more quickly.)
  2. Think about light and the good parts of life. Meditate often for short spans of time. Focus on a feeling of light. Ask for connection with the higher self. (Find the heart space and let love flow through your being.)
  3. Centering occurs in the heart. You literally contact the part of the self that knows the solution, the way into quieter, peaceful parts of life. It’s where truth abides.
  4. Ask for a higher pattern of results in life. Ask to see solutions and remember when life has moved more smoothly. See the opposite of whatever you are experiencing.
  5. Take long walks and sit in nature. Ask the earth to take your negative energy. Ask to feel the joyous parts of life. When you focus on the sensation of good instead of problems, the energy takes another form.
  6. Experiment by combining or altering meditation techniques. Ask your inner self for guidance. Act on every feeling and intuition. See where they lead you.
  7. Notice if the feeling is situational. If the feeling occurs when you are with specific people, it probably relates to them. If it appears with a specific task, you may feel your inner resistance, need to control, or old fears. Take a small step and reward yourself for taking action.
  8. Move into a state of knowing. Many of your thoughts and feelings are not real. They come from the lower self and habits or patterns. They disappear when you move into a higher state of consciousness. You are feeling all that you are leaving behind. In the future, you will “meet” more of your shining, incredible inner self.
