Thoughts about the Heart

 

In the heart chakra, there are the answers that we have searched for all along. We find the answers, little by little, as we change our frequencies. Our frequencies can change very quickly or very slowly, depending on how much we are willing to change our lives. This desire for change is awakened in the heart by joy.

It is the quest of the heart to desire expansion, to desire greater fulfillment and freedom. It is this expansion that opens our hearts to enlightenment. An experience of joyful enlightenment creates a natural desire for more of this experience. Our journey continues as a reflection of our spiritual nature in physical form.

Part of the continuation of the journey is the creation of the true self. The true self lives in the human heart. It is the place of intersection or the nexus for the soul and body, the resolution of duality. As the spiritual and physical nature merge, the soul casts light on the ego. The integration of the ego, as shaped by the soul, forms a third thing, known as the True Self. This is the experience of an outer reality that is based on the experience of the inner life. It is a cognitive journey

When we begin to receive messages from our heart, we essentially cast light on the darkness of the ego. For this reason, we may experience pain on our journey. (It’s not new pain, and it comes with the understanding that our patterns, memories, and responses are part of the darkness in our lives—and finding light is the panacea. It teaches us how to change both perceptions and beliefs.)

Moments of enlightenment begin as flashes. We learn to search within the heart, for it is said to be the plumb line that measures the depth and safety of the waters in which the seeker travels. Our  conflicting experience of reality becomes evident through witnessing the profound love of our glorious connection and the darkness of the separation when disconnected.

The darkness of separation is mitigated by discipline and changing our own character. There is a point when we understand that we are the creators – at least, in part – of the difficult circumstances in our lives. This experience of duality lessens through changing ourselves.

When we change ourselves, we experience a profound shift in vibratory frequency. We understand that the difficulties were necessary for the evolution of our soul. As we learn to love our journey as well as the darkness in our lives, we begin to love ourselves. We move into the love of the heart that is conscious awakening. This love opens a profound door to expression and expansion. As we love ourselves more, we learn how to love the fabric of the Universe.

5 Reasons to Open Your Heart

The Heart lies at the center of your being. The soul speaks through the heart and gives loving guidance. In metaphysics, the first true awakening comes through the heart center. Knowing and listening to your heart is a powerful tool. Here are five good reasons for working with this powerful center.

  • Truth and love flow through the heart. It is how we feel our alignment with the universe. The head generates many thoughts and ideas, but we feel their value through the heart. We move into a space of love by listening to the heart. We can actually weigh ideas through the heart. “Listen” and “feel” through the heart. Does the idea make your chest expand or contract? (For a year, I used this practice by asking if a thought came from the heart or not-self.) The universe speaks through the heart.
  • We receive and generate love through the heart space. We can ask for love or pink light. We can imagine a ray of pink light entering our chests and healing our body, emotions, and thoughts. When we feel love, we naturally radiate it out into the world. (True abundance comes from the space of the heart and alignment with universal love.)
  • We can discern between personal truth and non-truth by listening to the heart. There is a light, warm, easy feeling when thoughts resonate with the heart. We feel other thoughts in the head or pelvis area—the ones not resonating with the heart.) The heart moves us toward our dreams. The heart also tells us when there is dissonance in our environment because there is an uneasy feeling. It’s helpful to ask what can be changed and if we can take an action. Sometimes, the action is as simple as sitting outdoors or taking a break. We discern the right answer or simply move into a still place where we wait for the arrival of the answer.
  • The heart provides balance. Positioned in the center of the chakra system, it balances the physical chakras and spiritual chakras. As human beings, we have many desires at a given time. By listening to the heart, we can create a balance between physical routine and spiritual practice.
  • Passion is one of the biggest and best reasons for opening the heart. Spiritual passion pulls us into expression, enthusiasm, and ecstasy. The heart delights in the sensations of love and life. Through the heart, we experience expansion of life. We find the words, images, or actions to reflect beauty and joy. We find the courage to inspire, go forward, and express our gifts. (It’s not enough to push through life!) Passion is magical. It’s about wanting a desire enough to take a big step!

Creating Desirable Change

 

Desirable changes come from the inner self; they bring peace, contentment, and happiness. It is not always easy to arrive at this place. Sometimes, it takes time and patience, but the journey is worth it.

It’s impossible to change everything. You can’t change other people, and, sometimes, circumstances don’t change until you alter yourself. But you can always alter your attitude, beliefs, and perceptions by coming into a place where you and universe flow together.Everything becomes softer and easier; it feels better. Over time, you find that you can change many events in life by using the techniques, which you master through the work.

Here are a few simple suggestions:

  1. Connecting to your inner self and the “light” helps with everything because your frequency (or vibrations in your energy field) become higher. People respond differently. You perceive new solutions, and you feel more peace and contentment. A higher frequency equals better results in daily life (reality.)
  2. Reality alters to match the vibrations in your energy field. When you see an event positively, your perspective changes. It can take time to raise your projection of an event, relationship, or outcome, but this works. Change your perception and change the outcome.
  3. When you can’t change the outcome, you can image sending color or calm energy. Love is easily sent by imagining pink light. You can send it to you, the molecules surrounding you, or a situation. Moving into love and turning events over to the universe often brings resolution. (Accept the resolution and decide you have the strength to move through the situation.)
  4. Focus on the good in your life. You’re alive. You are loved. You have a spiritual connection (or you wouldn’t read this.) You have the ability to change your life. This is powerful knowledge, and few people ever arrive at this place.
  5. Believe in your ability to change your life. Believe in the universe. Know there are spiritual forces such as angels, light, and other people who support and believe in you. Find friends who focus on solutions, take a course, or find a coach. Do something. (Meditating is an action, too.)
  6. You can’t change other people, but you can change your perception. You can imagine living in a more supportive environment and/or focus on receiving love and appreciation from others. Or simply focus on greater happiness and fulfillment.
  7. Believe in the power of the universe that will support positive changes in your life. The universe wants expansion, beauty, love, and growth for everyone.

Meditation:

  • Meditation is one of the keys to the process. Close your eyes and feel your inner self. (When we don’t think, see, or feel anything, we feel the inner self. We also pull back our energy from life.) If you stay in this space for ten minutes, you will feel the inner self. It feels wonderful and peaceful. This part of the self holds the answers. Commune with it quietly.
  • Hold and feel a visual of what you want to experience. If you want happiness and peace, see yourself in this state. If you feel hopeless, create an image of opportunities flowing into your life. If you’re angry, imagine feeling peaceful. Refuse negative thoughts (about anything) and hold onto your visual for 30 seconds. The “new” energy will eventually replace the old energy.
  • Think about love. Love is the one of the key components of the universe. We are loved unconditionally by the universe. Pink light is also love. We can send pink light to our projects, our body, and the people in our lives. Light and love are higher vibrations. Everything in the universe responds to love and light. As you hold more love and light in your “field”, the universe responds more quickly!

Moving into More Love

 

Everyone wants more love. When you connect with the love “frequency”, you receive more of it. When you think about awakening, you automatically connect with energetic waves, which give the feeling of love. When you open your heart, you receive more light and love from the universe.

It’s interesting to realize how the placement of consciousness affects your experience. For example, when you think about light, you receive love. When you love yourself, it alters the flow of particles in your body and energy field. When you send love (pink light), it can alter relationships and bring healing. (Obviously, this type of work involves sincere feelings.) When you feel the love of another person, it speeds the motion of your molecules and creates more self-love.

  1. The ultimate source of light and love is the universe. It comes through meditation and contemplation—and by listening to the inner self. (You know when you find it because everything feels bright, beautiful, and still.)
  2. Finding universal love changes our perception of life. It reveals the inner self. You see, the inner self often differs from “who” you think you are. This part of the self feels life with a multiplicity of sensations. It speaks through intuition to lead you on your path.
  3. Finding the inner self means embarking on a passage of self-love. This involves boundaries, insights, loving the darkness within the self, and a willingness to see the truth. It also brings more love, compassion, and empathy. It’s a journey—not an immediate answer.
  4. The heart speaks more loudly as you step into love. It whispers about what you truly love, and it tells you about hurt and pain, which are sometimes hidden beneath the surface. You also become more vulnerable, and this means becoming brave.
  5. As you step into vulnerability, you begin to see how universal love heals. You can send light or love to others. You can hold a vision of healing for the world. You can send love, comfort, and compassion. You want to see abundance and success for others.
  6. Love teaches you about change, which may mean changing yourself. Perhaps, you learn to love your body or your life. Maybe, you speak more kindly or see the underlying light in everything. It leads to a shift into a higher state of being.
  7. As you learn more about love, you accept the human state of duality. You know the state of love shifts from one duality into another. Life provides the opportunity to shift sadness into happiness or loneliness to love, but you learn to rely on the beauty of your heart to bring you back into center–where the universe awaits.

NOTE: Everyone has moments of “not” feeling love. This can be useful if you are willing to see these dark places and moments as points, which offer the potential for change and growth. (Accept this as the part of you that longs for change, and send light to the feelings. Assume you have the ability to change the circumstances, thoughts, and feelings, which are associated with this state.)

More About Manifestation

Image by Amanda Clark

 

Manifestation is becoming increasingly important as a way of altering the flow of life.. As we become more intuitive, it can change small outcomes as well as the vibrations of others around us. On a higher level, it can connect us to our heart’s desires and act as an aid in our personal evolution–and perhaps the world.

Active manifestation involves alignment with higher energies and the inner self. Positive shifts in the environment and/or our personal world come from a change in consciousness, a state of heightened awareness. Initially, work may begin through awareness of discomfort and/or negative emotion, but the situation often changes by altering perception.
Here are a few tips:
1) It begins with awareness, the placement of consciousness, and a strong desire. A strong desire comes from the heart; it is beneficial and promotes positive change.
2) Meditation is one of the most effective tools with manifestation. It opens the heart and calls in higher consciousness. However, focusing a desire intently works, particularly when accompanied by positive emotion.  Your heart’s desire is created by you and the Universe. The Universe is aware of  your true heartfelt desire and will help if you ask.
3) You must create an energy mass that is equivalent to your desire. This statement can be simplified by saying that your heart’s desire has a certain amount of mass that is weighed in energy. When you meditate, change your thoughts, emotions and take an action toward its manifestation, you are accumulating energy, which is needed for anything to materialize in physical form.
4) Every physical object holds a specific vibration. You pull in the vibration of the object (even money) by visualizing and feeling its density, size, shape, color and the interaction between you and its physical form.  Imagine living in the image of the desired reality. Energy or attention creates “more” of the object of your focus. If you focus on lack of love, prosperity or joy in your life, then you naturally create more of an undesirable state. The same is true with positive reflections. When you speak about a happy/unhappy state of mind, you create a vibration through the voice — a sound or frequency that reinforces the appearance of a desirable or undesirable state.
5) It’s important to know you are worthy. You’re a beloved of the universe, who deserves a wonderful life. As you move into this knowledge and practice manifestation actively, you’ll become more intuitive and gain awareness of how to shift your consciousness to create more harmony for yourself and the world.

New Moon Forecast

 

As we move into the New Age, we continue our journey into the unknown. Next week’s New Moon will be a micro-moon, which means it’s farther from the earth than usual. We tend to experience the void, a point of emptiness or new beginnings at the New Moon, and it will be amplified by other factors in the chart.

The New Moon, Full Moon, solstices, equinoxes, and eclipses are openings in the universal energy—times that offer the opportunity to receive and integrate greater knowledge. Each door holds an occult meaning. For example, the New Moon is void, the time of beginnings, and the Full Moon is the time of fruition.

The New Moon on Monday, December 18 features seven planets in fire—and five in Sagittarius, the sign of the archer. With Mercury in retrograde in Sagittarius along with four additional planets, it’s a time to redefine beliefs and realign our direction.

Sun, Moon, Venus, and Saturn conjunct (close to) Galactic Center. It’s helpful to see Galactic Center as the eye of the Milky Way that transmits light, higher information, and inspiration. Light from this distance speaks of the future, and it can take time to read and integrate the information from the “download”. (It would be helpful to take an hour for meditation.)

Focus on the future also appears through five powerful trines between Sun (life), Moon (inner self), Venus (love), and Saturn (time/karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change.) Trines are harmonious and promote the creation of “good” things. Uranus also represents the New Age and Quantum Change. It can transmit ideas and images, which are useful in creating a spiritually aligned future.

Mercury remains retrograde until December 22, increasing the likelihood that we will have to wait before processing the “divine” information from Galactic Center. The retrograde makes precise tasks difficult, and it’s important to slow down—and use intuition. (The Higher Mind is intuition, balanced by reason, and it’s part of the lesson of Mercury retrograde.)

Venus in Sagittarius has a relaxed view about love. It’s a free spirited energy that prefers nature and conversation. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love) squares Neptune, clouding our understanding and creating illusion. The aspect can intensify beauty and mysticism—or highlight the negative side of the imagination.

Jupiter

Mars (male, assertion) is placed in Scorpio, and it is exalted in this sign. It gives a warrior like quality to cut through the superfluous and create powerful outcomes. Mars is conjunct Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). It’s a benevolent aspect, increasing success and desire for physical activities.

Mars and Jupiter trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can bring the benefit of higher emotions along with glimpses of calm, bliss, and love. These qualities along with spirituality belong the elation of mysticism.

Sun, Moon, and Venus are conjunct Saturn. Saturn can bring a sense of heaviness along with unhappy memories from the past. Saturn rules time and karma; it can make life seem heavy. (There are many uplifting aspects in the chart. The Saturn aspect will pass in a week or two.)

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn square Chiron, the wounded healer. This placement will likely bring wounds to the surface. Squares with Chiron rarely offer solutions; they reveal the source of patterns and pain. (We may receive insights for healing through aspects with Galactic Center and Uranus—after all they represent the cosmic field.)

Both the past (Saturn, Chiron) and the future (Uranus, Galactic Center) appear strongly in this chart. The lesson lies in letting go of the pain of the past, releasing patterns, and absorbing the energies of a new world in the making. The potential lies in creative applications of new and unknown energies.

Notes:

  1. It’s important to rest and reflect with Mercury in retrograde. Use intuition to navigate when life feels confusing. Rest when it feels overwhelming. (Retrogrades are not about pushing into the future.)
  2. We will receive intuitive information about the future, the inner self, and cosmic awakening–particularly if we’re aware and meditate. Galactic Center will transmit this information around the time of the New Moon. (It will probably feel more intense on Monday, the day of the New Moon.)
  3. Mars (male energy) and Jupiter (expansion) can help with completing tasks, creating a path to success, and working with the physical body.
  4. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) continues to cloud the landscape with illusion and misdirected imagination. Hold the thought or belief for a week or so–and see if it’s true.
  5. It’s easy to feel tired or “down” with Saturn in conjunction with many planets. It may feel depressing, but it’s not. We’ll receive much energy and information for a positive future. The aspect will pass before Christmas, and our spirits will lift.

Simple, Difficult Lessons

 

 

The biggest lessons often involve daily life. They are about becoming conscious during repetitious and emotional activities. The lessons also have to do with our perception of light–and the world. (They also teach us how to blend the current self and the higher self in many aspects of life.)

If you’re encountering these lessons and feelings, it simply means you are awakening and moving into a higher level of self-development. Observe often and love yourself for your courage and fortitude!

  1. Moving more deeply into trust. Trust that the universe is taking care of you. Your higher self can always find the path and lead you into a place of peace, safety, and comfort. (When life is difficult, move into the inner self. Listen to your intuition. Make an active effort based on your inner voice, heart, or another feeling.)
  2. Your light is growing. You feel more of it when you meditate, and you find your light when you’re upset. Some days, everything falls into place. You find easier to understand other people’s point of view—even when you don’t agree. You know everything is changing for the better despite how the world might appear. (It takes time for spiritual creations to move into form.)
  3. Invisible connections. When you meditate, you feel others who are doing the same. Periodically, you sense the light of many other people in the world. Love and light flow through you. You think about a small problem, and someone (or something) provides the answer.
  4. Soul Contracts. People are moving in and out of your life. A soul contract is an agreement to meet a specific person during this lifetime. It includes children, spouses, parents, friends, and enemies. There is always a strong pull. Generally, it’s about resolving issues, growing into greater love, offering support, and working through emotions (both good and bad). It’s an almost inexplicable attraction/repulsion between individuals. (In soul contracts, one person may grow, and the other doesn’t move into love. Growth can also come from negative people, which results in creating boundaries. You may also move into greater love and strength. Regardless, there is always a feeling of “fate”.
  5. Accept the alternating energies. Nothing moves or happens as it did in the past. The sun and moon are often on a different course. Patterns of nature and the weather are changing. Overall, the changes can aid with spiritual growth because you cannot repeat the same actions at the same time every day. But you can hold fast to your practices. You can send light to others and the world. (Sleeping and eating patterns are changing. Listen within for guidance.)
  6. Listen with your heart. Softer emotions are replacing anger, fear, and judgement. You’re learning to pause before speaking. You’re beginning to realize how life moves in a different rhythm when you listen and respond. You experience an uplifting sensation of happiness when acting on your inner instruction.
  7. Sense the invisible world. You have moments of knowing. Beneath the appearance of the physical world, energy moves. It’s invisible and powerful. It speaks through intuition, and you’re tapping into it. You realize that person didn’t mean what they said, or the news is diverting your attention. You open the window and feel nature calling to you. You suddenly know who will call you or how the day will move. You know how to find a higher vibration (some of the time) and shift the circumstances that are flowing around you.

Jupiter in Scorpio: The Big Reveal

Image by Josephine Wall

 

Jupiter moved into Scorpio on October 10. As the largest planet in galaxy, we feel the pull of the Jupiter’s power as the opportunity to enlarge, improve and benefit in life. As the largest planet in the galaxy, we’ll feel its pull and power to enlarge, improve and benefit through the specific sign of its placement. Scorpio rules birth, sex, death—or states of transformation.

Scorpio is an intense water sign, mysterious and resourceful. Its strength is willpower and decisiveness, but it doesn’t mind walking on the dark side of life. Scorpio tends to have laser-like vision and sees objects in the dark or on the earth that others miss. In this way, it often reveals truths that otherwise would be hidden.

Jupiter in Scorpio will reveal truths hidden the in subconscious, shadowy aspects of life, and secrets in outer world. Scorpio also rules birth, sex, and death, and regeneration.(The Weinstein sex scandal is a perfect example. It appeared in the news as Jupiter moved into Scorpio, and it involves sex, money, and power. )  Jupiter tends to bring blessings, and the combination of Jupiter and Scorpio lifted a dark event into the light for clearing and change.

The sign of Scorpio is represented by the scorpion, eagle, and phoenix. The three creatures symbolize the progression of Scorpio through the scorpion that lives close to the earth and stings (hurts) anything that threatens. The eagle soars above the earth as a powerful predator; it has powerful vision but remains a hunter. Burned to ashes through emotional intensity, the phoenix rises through the ashes, achieving regeneration through spiritual fire.

Influences and Benefits:

  • Scorpio’s decisive ability comes from its power to sense and recognize truth on an intuitive level. Jupiter will expand its power to convey courage and strength. Courage and decisiveness are necessary to move through fear and obstacles on the quest of the soul. (The past two years in Libra focused on seeing both sides of the picture and weighing them carefully.)
  • Scorpio rules the void, the “between” states of birth, sex, and death. It can heighten our ability to move into shamanic or enlightened states where the spiritual world dictates the motion of mind, spirit, and body—and reveals the path of the soul. (Hopefully, we’ll return to a more natural, wholesome view of sex. Understand that the “dead” are with us—simply in another world.)
  • Spiritual knowledge is heightened by asking questions and solving mysteries. Think of the Zen koan, which asks, “What was your face before you were born?” Scorpio is masterful at solving mysteries associated with the occult, and Jupiter will help us with our journey.
  • As part of the Plutonian influence, Jupiter in Scorpio reveals what’s hidden–or we don’t want to see. (I’m not entirely sure if this is good or bad.) At any rate, we have to know the truth to develop spiritually. The big idea behind it lies in developing our ability to see the ugliness and difficulty in life while remaining true to the light. If we remain true to the light and our inner vision, we will go through a transformation, which alters our material reality as well as the self.
  • Transformation comes from Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, which rules the underworld. In most mythical systems, it’s necessary to visit the underground to achieve hero status and/or the power to wield extraordinary powers. We’ll travel there during Jupiter’s 13 month sojourn.

It’s a challenging but enlightening combination of energies with Jupiter in Scorpio. Our emotions become stronger, and our passions will become more intense with a need to moderate. But Scorpio can be courageous. It gives resources to delve into the dark and resolve issues on many levels including transforming blocks to material wealth, moving through past obstacles, and understanding what is hidden within us along with the power to change it.

Through the Lion’s Gate

Image by Lucy Adams

 

The term, Lion Gate, refers to the time when solar light (Leo) strikes the world.  The Lion’s Gate symbolizes walking through solar energy by cleansing and 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 July 26 and August 12—although the energy is at its height on August 8.

The Lion’s Gate occurs during “Dog Days” or when the star, Sirius, precedes the sun on the horizon. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is aligned with the rise of Sirius, the dog star, as the influx of solar light brought a time of rebirth—an opportunity to glide into our divine blueprint—to resurrect the True Self. In ancient times, the year began on July 23 with the blast of Leo (solar) energy, and the gate of energy remained open through September 15.

Think of it as a cosmic blast. Solar light is associated with the masculine energies such as spirituality, universal love, and pure light. Light cleanses, and it changes the body. For those who are open, it alters the DNA, raising our capacity to receive more light into our overall being. (The light is somewhat yang and can feel over stimulating on a mental/creative level if we don’t take time to rest and reflect.)

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.

Light also acts a quickening and cleansing agent. It cleanses our thoughts, emotions, and  illustrates 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 we didn’t believe that we had to have these experiences? Or we could alter our lives instantly?  Who would we become if we stepped into more deeply into the light? What if more positive events happened more quickly? (There is a “feeling” beneath the questions.)

There are inherent challenges in raising our light level. Sometimes, we think about what we are leaving behind and worry about who we will become. Other times, we wonder how we will get arrive–although visualizing, asking questions, making wishes, or believing might lead us to fulfillment with far less effort.

On the human level, there are changes with every new level of light. They can be grouped for simplicity, but we may feel the changes on more than one level–or not feel them at all. When we expand our awareness, we move into more light. (Particular aspects of change, including the planets, stars, or natural events, are experienced in different ways.)

Group I – Light workers and light givers. If you are already giving light and service to others, you may have felt quite tired for the past week. Stepping down light for yourself and other people can feel exhausting. You may need rest, more water, or gentle exercise. The DNA changes when you reach a higher level, and it takes time to process the new light. The light can bring our personal shadow (and the shadows of others) to light. It can point to needed changes, letting go of parts of the identity, or simply moving into more love. Regardless, your energy can feel scrambled, but meditation and rest will bring balance. (Sometimes, we are forced to let go of our focus temporarily. Rest in knowing that the universe makes everything work, and it will support you.)

Group II – Open heart and awakened. The influx of light can actually support your dreams and help in gaining greater creativity with current projects. Stay aware of love and the potential to move more deeply into it. It’s okay if your thoughts feel scrambled and confused from time to time, it will pass. Project happiness and expand your visualizations.

Group III – Mass consciousness.  This group tends to refuse the influx of light; they actually move more deeply into the shadow during these times. They usually become angry or depressed and can pull at your energy more than normal.  It’s helpful to ask for a higher light level and ask the universe to help in clearing and deleting the attachment from lower consciousness. (NOTE: you tend to experience mass consciousness–or lower consciousness– in the areas of our weaknesses and/or karma, it’s important to think about your abilities and good points after an encounter.)

A few tips:

  • Fire brings purification and cleansing. What do we want to leave behind in life? It can be as simple as fear or as complex as a whole portion of personal/professional life. Trust that the change is for the best and take a step ahead.
  • Fire expands things. It fans sticks and leaves into a huge flame. Where do we want to expand our life? What is the spiritual plan? How do we want to awaken more?
  • Where do we lack answers? Let the fire blaze a trail. Follow the light.
  • Use the creative fire to expand and revitalize your life.
  • Let the solar light lift the inner and outer life to a higher level. Who would we become on a higher level?
