Manifestation: One of the Keys of Awakening

 

Manifestation is part of awakening. We become aware of how we create our lives as we grow in consciousness. (Everyone is already manifesting, but it’s mainly unconscious.) If we imagine a loop of tape playing and replaying, we might wonder why it continues to play, or we might decide to change the tape. That’s the basic substance of manifestation.

When we realize that we have the power to change the tape, then we alter the direction of our lives. If this realization comes with awakening (and a higher level of vibrations), we know it’s important to create a life in alignment with the inner self. As we expand into light and love, we naturally want to create and experience more “good” in life. Ultimately, it’s beneficial to ourselves and the people around us because everyone benefits from a higher frequency.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Meditation is one of the keys to the realization of the heart’s desire. It brings alignment with the inner self, which quietens thoughts and stills emotions. It also gives connection to the universe, the biggest source of love and light.
  2.  Manifestation alters our perception. It teaches focus on the positive sensations and images of what we want to create. When we focus on the good in life and see the positive, we move into higher vibrations where more possibility and opportunity exist. By focusing the mind, we learn to alter our perceptions.
  3. Many of our perceptions are based on experience and belief, which occur as part of our encounters with life. It doesn’t mean that life always responds in this way, or the outcome never changes. It simply implies that we need to see and feel life differently–and believe that we can change it in a positive sense.
  4. Working with manifestation teaches discernment. Over time, we learn the value of “things” lies in their resonance with our heart. If our desire doesn’t align with the heart or our inner self, it won’t bring joy. But repeated experiences teach the difference between the desires of the inner and outer being.
  5. Focusing on a positive vision teaches control of lower emotions and thoughts. Part of any manifestation lies in the substitution of one thought and image for another. (We can’t change and/or control everything, but we can influence a great deal. Also, we can change our emotions and thoughts.)
  6. The practice teaches a great deal about inner power as well as the changes that occur when we connect with the universe and the inner self. We can use the same practice to alter other people’s lives–and the world. (Everyone and everything is happier in a higher frequency.)
  7. The heart space expands when we step into creating the vision of the inner self. We feel more love and peace. And the world becomes more beautiful.

Planetary Change and New Moon

 

The sky is calmer since the passage of the equinox, the end of Mercury retrograde last week, and the movement of planets into Aries, and other aspects.  However, life remains somewhat free-flowing—a time of reflection while spring awakens the beauty of the earth.

The dark phase of the moon brings the New Moon on April 5, and it remains a time of introspection. Think of seeds lying deep in the earth; it’s same with our aspirations for growth and change. At the same time, the day of the New Moon (and the three days following) are an excellent time for reviewing and renewing plans in the physical/spiritual world.

In month of April, three planets will move into retrograde position. Jupiter, planet of good fortune, will move backwards from April 10-August 11. As Jupiter rules discovery, abundance, and journeys, it’s a time to make corrections on our spiritual path by committing to aspects of life that support our growth. Pluto, planet of transformation and the underworld, is retrograde April 24-October 3. It tends to reveal hidden emotions and old, painful stories before lifting them into the surface of consciousness. It also allows us to rewrite our life stories (and beliefs) in a more victorious way. (Of course, we have to see the truth before we can rewrite into another form.) Saturn moves in retrograde on April 30-September 18. Much of Saturn’s influence is about finding devotion on the higher path and overcoming obstacles by following the light. This path also requires on many levels.

In many ways, the planets are our teachers. The moons (new and full) create a cycle of changing emotions and energies to demonstrate the realm of emotion/thought, which occur in response to various energies.

This New Moon asks for independence, boldness, and courage by moving into the new territory of our dreams. With Sun and Moon in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, it’s important to make new beginnings, plan our lives in a new way, and feel the joy of creation. (Think of the lamb, the symbol of Aries, the appearance of the flowers, and the hope and loveliness that are found in the beginning phases of life.)

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) in Aries tend to propel our energies in a forward direction. They trine (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), eliciting positive outcomes from positive interactions with steps taken in life to create a more positive life and flowing emotions. Sun and Moon square Saturn (limitation, karma), making it necessary to push determinedly through obstacles and old, worn-out perceptions about our lives. Sun and Moon square Pluto (underworld, transformation), making it necessary to find the truth about subconscious feelings and free them by recreating them into a higher form. (Fortunately, Sun and Moon are very creative in a fire sign.)

Mercury (communications) remains in Pisces, linking us into mystical communications and confusing us with the dual-vision of Pisces (two fish swimming in opposite directions.)  Mercury squares (tension) Jupiter (good fortune), which may help with discerning our higher and lower thoughts—and their benefit/lack of benefit. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Neptune in Pisces, amplifying the free-floating feeling, which we’ve experienced for weeks. (On the positive, it can heighten our intuition and mystical nature.)

Venus

Venus (love, partnerships) is beautifully placed in Pisces where it is exalted, offering an expression of mystical, idealistic love in the physical world. It can also help us to connect more deeply with divine forces, which serve us with our life purpose. (Venus, Mercury, and Neptune rise in this chart, offering a doorway into love and higher frequencies.) Venus squares (tension) Mars (male energy), which may make communication between the sexes more difficult than usual. But Venus also conjuncts (close to) Neptune, which can awaken dreams of the heart and nourish the spirit.

Mars (male, energy) is in Gemini, the sign of the twins. In this air sign, Mars lacks traction; it’s more difficult to move forward. We also experience some of the push me/pull me energy, which appeared last month with many signs of Pisces. (Think of a red light that turns green and not knowing if you turn right or left!) Fortunately, the energy of Sun/Moon in Aries can push us through life.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Sagittarius continues to ask for heightened interest in spirituality, study, and inner development. Jupiter trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), increasing our ability to harmoniously combine the old and new world. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), creating the need for discernment between the lovely, flowing feeling of connection and creating a path (life) that serves us. Jupiter also squares (tension) Chiron, the wounded healer, which may heighten awareness of old wounds and karma.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) continues to square (tension) Pluto (underworld, transformation), dredging the dark material of the River Styx into the light for transformation into something beautiful and new. Neptune sextiles (harmonious) Pluto, offering unconditional as part of the process of transformation, the beautiful and challenging way of life in a New World.

Message for Wolves

 

In my life, I spend time with wolves. I visit friends who raise or live with them, I see wolf hybrids when I walk on streets of Asheville, NC where wolves are legal pets, and I see them at the vet with owners who are ignorant of their wolf percentage. A thrill of connection runs through us, and I hear their thoughts and feel their energy—a wild, deep feeling between souls and hearts.

It is uplifting and spiritual; yet, it connects to the earth, the ancient, ever-changing mother of our physical lives—a place to learn how to alter the physical world through aligned thoughts and actions. On the highest level, it is accomplished by aligning consciousness with the earth and the sky (universe).

I feel the wolf spirit that runs through the planet and me. Sometimes, it’s simply energy. At other times, there are messages, and wolves appear in my dreams. When they share a message for light givers in particular, I hear a rumbling that translates into words.This is true today. The wolves have awareness of the shifting energy on the planet. It’s more than astrology, geology, or knowledge of the past and future, which they possess. It’s a rollicking movement of many energies tat one time. Let’s call it a challenge.

Here’s their message:

The earth is changing by emitting many different frequencies such as high and low energies, changing its ley lines, and altering the poles. Even the trees and flowers are growing in a new way although few people notice.

Another way of seeing this is to notice how physical energy changes from day to day. People are sometimes tired and/or heavy. On other days, they feel uplifted and energetic. Sleep patterns also change with motions and energies of the earth, which give patterns of sleeplessness, light sleep, and a drowsiness that makes it difficult to stay awake and have enough rest.

On a spiritual or psychic level, the gifts of those, who are aligned, are heightening. For those who have done the work, their intuition grows sharper and often delivers images and words. At this point, people actually move into higher sphere of being when reading energy. So, they are moving in and out of zones of consciousness, which can feel tiring or uplifting. (People move in and out of higher dimensions, and wolves can be heard accurately in a higher dimension.)

There are many waves of cosmic energy that affect the planet. One waves if love, and it is uplifting, reminding humans of their ability to overcome all things. There are lower vibrations, which come from many sources, although it is possible to rise above them.  Also, there is wave of lower humanity that is heavy with fear, and it can send consciousness to a lower level.

Karma is another issue. Many people are overcoming the karma of limiting beliefs and their vision of how life affects them—whether it is true or not. Others think the work of light is to carry others and embrace their problems. (Simply shine the light of happiness and connection whenever possible to truly lift up others.)

Another problem is the lack of love for the planet, and the perpetual visualization of the wipe-out of species, the destruction of the earth, and a helpless feeling that accompanies these thoughts. Use your power and see the earth as whole and beautiful. See things that don’t exist such as beauty, birds, and trees wherever they are not. (This is the use of superpower!)

We know that a challenge meets the people, who are growing—sometimes on a daily basis. But it is truly an opportunity to use inner power on all levels and at all times. Think of it as one of the last of series of tests on the subject of mastery.

We see who is aligned, making a true effort, and attempting to live in love and truth on a tumultuous planet. We also the ones who are not, and their time is limited. As the energy rises, the change will take place. The wolves send their energy to the courageous ones, who keep trying, visualizing, praying, and moving forward. The energies will soon support you. Have faith.

 

Juno

Questions:

Q: For those of who are making the effort, the energy is sometimes overwhelming. What can we do?

A: Become completely present and ask for help. Ask for a higher vibration. Think about how it feels when you are calm and happy. Then, focus on your heart. (When you are completely present in your heart, the energy cannot move you.)

Q: How can we connect to the earth more fully?

Notice the changes, the new location of the sun/moon, the change in growth patterns of trees and flowers, and imagine a beautiful, ecologically whole planet. The earth feels these slight shifts in consciousness and responds by protecting and loving you in the same way that the universe hears prayers.

Q: What is the best way of working with the waves?

A: First of all, they do not affect everyone at one time as do planetary or astrological aspects. Other people in your home may not feel or react to them. Know they are temporary. Become present, listen to your body and act accordingly, and focus your consciousness on how it feels when you are strong and happy.

Q: How can we move through karma more quickly?

A: By realizing that your understanding of karma (for many) relates to thousands of years of conditioning and various religions and much of it is based on your beliefs about yourself, your life, and what you think will happen. Your “program” pulls in people, events, and circumstances that prove it to you.

(Yes, everyone creates actions that are out of alignment, but they change by a strongly correct action and/or a huge shift in attitude. Nothing is fixed forever in place on this planet; a huge shift in consciousness can wipe the slate clean.)

Harmony with this planet is attained through the heart, right thoughts, and powerful actions. All emotions can be useful if applied correctly—and if there is work to understand where they come from.

Q: Why does it take so long for good events and happiness to manifest when it seems negative thoughts can manifest quickly?

A: People do not truly believe in miracles. You don’t see them. People tend to talk about negativity and watch shows about negative drama. With your head so filled with these things, there is not space for the magnificent.

While many incorrect beliefs were proliferated by religious organizations, there was once a very strong belief in the magic of miracles, blessings, and the appearance of good things.

When many people with light devote their consciousness to the creation of miracles, they will occur everywhere, but there many habits of limited thinking that wait for eradication. The new waves of love, the motion into new dimensions by those who awake, and deep understanding that positive manifestation comes through the inner self is part of the change.

Another part of this is the understanding of greater connection, people rarely wish good things for other people, and this delays their own manifestations. People are out of the habit of sending love as a wave, which uplifts everyone. And they have forgotten to listen to the Earth, have forgotten that nature herself makes the changes, which brings life and energy into physical form.

It is good to ask the Earth for protection, to ask her transmute emotions, and align your consciousness with your true life, the one you deserve.  Ask her to help you in hearing your inner voice.

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!

Feeling the Shift

Image by Alice Mason

If you’re awakening, meditating, or opening your heart, you are feeling the shift. It’s normal to have oscillating feelings, which move from low to high. You may also experience changes in life as the universe is rearranging human and physical life into a higher paradigm.
Here are a few examples of higher feelings and “knowing”, which are experienced as we shift into a new age.
  1. You’re aware of the light, including the variations of energy. You’ve learned to adjust your energy to days, varying from a blast of light to a tired sensation. (The tired feeling often comes when adjusting physically to a higher light level. It can also come when you are called to action but feel you can’t respond.)
  2. You’re aware of how life responds to you. People become more emotional or gentler in accordance with your energy level. You know the phone stops ringing or an outcome is delayed because the placement of your consciousness. You also know it’s possible to turn it around through meditation and visualizing life in a beautiful flow. (It may take a day or two, but you can do it.)
  3. You have insights about the people and places in your life. You know every location and person has a field of energy, and you respond/react to it. You’re willing to make big changes in your behavior, judgments, beliefs, and schedule to accommodate, avoid, or deepen your interaction with specific energies.
  4. When nothing works, you remember the power of light and love. You release the problem to the Divine. You ask for more connection; you recall how it’s the one thing, which always works.
  5. You’re a bit tired of the darkness in the world, but you know the light is stronger. You keep sending light and love—and a higher visual, a solution—out to the world. You know everything is changing and becoming more beautiful. It’s part of how you are changing yourself.

A Few Notations:

  1. Feelings are becoming more important as our inner light grows.  Opening the heart means that you experience more emotion, awareness, and intuition, which can require adjustment. As your energy increases, you actually project stronger feelings. (In this sense, feelings might be defined as emotion, sensation, and power.) When you feel anxiety, anger, peace, or love, you actually project those feelings into your energy field–and the world.
  2. It’s not enough to send light and love to the darkness. Yes, it helps. But it’s better if you send light and hold the image of a solution. (Otherwise, we receive a response from the darkness.) In other words, you help in evolving the energy of a problem by seeing a solution. (It doesn’t matter if the solution is far-fetched. In time, a better vision will appear.)
  3.  Releasing problems into the light helps.As you let go—and trust the light—you actually shift your identity. You release an aspect of the self, who identifies with the problem.  (Releasing control means increasing your ability to move into more light.)
  4. Time is moving faster, and you see the result more quickly than in the past. There is less density. The acceleration continues. It’s about using your time and energy wisely.
  5. Holograms or visual projections become stronger as your energy grows. Holograms–or your inner photo image of others–affects everything. Soon, more people will understand how many of our feelings and thoughts come from holograms. They are not all generated through your personal thoughts. (As you move more into your heart and intuitive ability, it becomes easier to discern this.)

If you are feeling the shift and/or experiencing these sensations, you may want to book a reading or join a class. Email and let me know how I can help.

Super Moon and Equinox Energies

 

It’s an incredibly intense and exciting equinox followed by the Full Super Moon on March 20.  It is a time of clarity and intention for spiritual seekers—an opportunity to move more deeply into the light and awaken inner abilities. In a sense, it is an elevator ride for those who are ready to know more, express the essence of the heart, and move more into their inner being.

Sun in Aries marks the beginning of a new cycle, the return of the light, which brings equivalent day/nights. It urges us to balance the light and darkness within ourselves. (The light leads and sustains on a spiritual quest; the dark nourishes the unknown and undiscovered within us. By exploring the darkness, we integrate the unknown and find gifts and treasures.)

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun (life, light) is “A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal Is Embracing Her.” The sea refers to mass or group (emotional) consciousness, which shapes our lives until we become conscious enough to seek new land. The seal represents a creature that is equally comfortable on the earth and in the sea. Overall, the symbol speaks about the emergence of life into a physical form that reflects our inner being and conscious spiritual desires.

The Moon (emotions, the mother) is in Libra, a sign of beauty and balance. The Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action), allowing our emotions to align with action. The Moon trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), and this aspect gives the power to unravel secrets and alter our emotions to transmute old patterns and create a better life. The Moon also conjuncts Super Galactic Center, a black hole that can represent darkness or enlighten us about our relationship with the dark or unevolved parts of life (personal or outer world.)

Mercury remains retrograde until March 28. It sits in Pisces, casting a spell of mild tiredness and weary confusion. (Mercury retro always does this.) However, its symbol is “A Master Instructing His Disciplines”, which may refer to the importance of transcending lower emotions such as moving through small frustrations and having patience when electronics and/or communications refuse to cooperate.

On a higher level, Mercury’s retrograde in Pisces brings conflicting emotions to the surface. Often, we have two voices or two feelings about a situation, and we vacillate about them without finding the answer. Mercury retro encourages remembering that the answers are in the heart, and it’s how we transcend duality. That’s the lesson. (Mercury sextiles (positive) Mars (action), Saturn (karma, structure), and Pluto (underworld, transformation), so there are many influences to help in finding clarity.)

Venus (love, partnerships, art) sits in Aquarius, a somewhat detached air sign. It encourages detachment from passion with a focus on spirituality and humanity. On the interesting side, Venus prefers the unusual and eccentric in this position. Venus squares (tension) Mars, asking for communion between the male/female sides of the self. The planet also sextiles (positive) Jupiter (good fortune), encouraging expansion in spiritual pursuits and love for humanity at large.

Mars (action, male) in Taurus helps with strength in action, particularly changes in the physical world. The planet trines (positive) Saturn, which gives clarity in action and a strong sense of structure. Mars also trines Pluto, aligning our consciousness with hidden resources and power.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Sagittarius asks for pursuit of spiritual quests. It indicates expansion comes from this course of action. Jupiter trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and the aspect can create unexpected good fortune or the simple feeling of alignment with the good in life. Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), asking for resolution between higher growth and mystical insights and/or dreaming.

Saturn (karma, limitation) sits in Capricorn tends to rule the world through finance and corporations. It sextiles Neptune (mysticism, idealism), which means our spiritual ideals and dreams may influence the flow of its energy. Saturn also conjuncts (close to) Pluto, which can awaken the underground energy or result in the creation of a new system of resources.

Uranus (sudden change, awakening) squares (tension) Pluto (underworld, transmutation), and it continues the process of pressuring us to examine our personal and global underworld to find the darkness and transmute it.

Overall, it’s an excellent chart for those who are prepared to reach a higher level of being. Certainly, it is a starting point for a big and positive shift.

NOTES:

  • It’s a wonderful chart for awakening, which supports growth and movement in our spiritual life. Sun in Aries, Mercury in Pisces, and Jupiter in Sagittarius encourage a state of receptivity to spiritual insights.
  • Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Jupiter, so we’re asked to consider how our lives, emotions, and thoughts are out of sync with the higher forms of good fortune and growth. (For example, we may know that we need to exercise more, but our habits and thoughts don’t support it.)
  • There’s an opportunity to glimpse our darkness—or how we become stuck there—with Moon conjunct Super Galactic Center. Part of the quest of the equinox is balancing darkness and light as nothing can exist in physical form without both dualities.
  • Mercury retro in Pisces stirs the waters and brings our conflicting emotions and thoughts to the surface. Again, centering or balancing is the goal, and we center through attention on the heart space.
  • The significant energy of a full moon (fruition) on the equinox hints at the appearance of a new cycle and a new phase of life.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun is on Aries 1, “A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, A Seal Is Embracing Her.” The symbol speaks of leaving the sea of conception through a conscious decision. A physical creature embraces and welcomes her. The symbol speaks of a new beginning, created by the light of consciousness.

Moon sits on Libra 1, “A Butterfly Preserved and Made Perfect with A Dart Through It.” The symbol refers to the preservation of beauty by artificial means—or capturing a moment or event that is displayed repeatedly in our consciousness. The answer lies in opening to the movement of the past and flowing into the future by transcending a frozen or stuck moment in time.

Mercury retrograde is placed on Pisces 19, “A Master Instructing His Disciples”. With Mercury retrograde in an emotional water sign, the symbol could easily refer to the importance of transcending emotion by centering in the heart. After all, it’s how we overcome oscillation. (Many recent astrological charts could refer to tests associated with spiritual growth.)

Venus sits on Aquarius 24, “A Man Turning His Back on His Passions Teaches Deep Wisdom from His Experience.” It’s an interesting symbol for Venus, the planet of love and relationships. Ironically, we often find greater love for our fellow humans and important “loved” ones by understanding the causes of our desires and passions. At this point, we may find our spiritual quest and/or a greater connection with the universe, which allows us to move into universal love, which ignites compassion and understanding.

Mars is placed on Taurus 24, “An Indian Warrior Riding Fiercely with Human Scalps Hanging at his Belt.” The Oracle warns of territorial pursuits, revenge, and conquests, which only lead to nightmares (eventually). Although we may feel victimized, it’s important to remember we have the power to change our lives and the energies around us.

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!

Aligning with Abundance

 

Abundance is part of our cosmic connection. “Reality” responds to our inner thoughts and feelings. When we are connected with the inner self and the universe, our thoughts and feelings change. In general, energy flows into the physical, amplifying our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and sensations – in a positive sense.

Energy follows our frequency. Abundance responds to our thoughts and feelings. Abundance grows as a result of our inner work.  All forms of abundance, including happiness, love, success, health, and financial prosperity, require cultivation through imagery and the heart space. The positive, peaceful energy of meditation flows best when we receive it with positive energy and thoughts. All positive energies in the spiritual world respond best to a meditative state, which brings a higher frequency and connection to the All. This state often boosts creativity and awakens inner desires.

  1. Every physical and spiritual change requires meditative work as well as small, personal changes in the physical world. An initial step may involve savings or small purchases, thinking of money differently, or thinking about it in a new way. (It can also involve additional work and/or a new attitude about work.)
  2. In spiritual work, it’s necessary to accept the moment (good and bad) while meditating joyfully on the desired change. Accept the moment and bless its goodness while continuing to see a “better” reality. With abundance, a desired change should include positive (but reasonable and practical) material shifts, an increase of ease in life, and some form of spiritual application (study, classes, self-development) – as well balanced generosity.
  3. Visualization of an increase of abundance is necessary. It’s important to see and feel more love, success, health, or wealth–and to substitute this visual whenever we feel lack or loss.
  4. It’s important to bless the appearance of answers – even when they are not exactly correct. It may appear that the desired job is on the horizon or money is on the way, but it doesn’t manifest. We may meet potential partners, but they are not a good fit. Give thanks for the appearance and continue to visualize. (It’s a sign of the universe taking note – an indication of the coming of the fulfilled desire.)
  5. Take note of when/where/how visualizations work and/or don’t manifest. Give particular attention to these areas. Create new images, feelings of excitement, and the sensation of relief and gratitude associated with success. Don’t give up. Practice more.
  6. Many visualizations require change within the self. It’s usually necessary to create new beliefs and thoughts that align with a desire.
  7. It can take time to create through meditation and visualization. It’s a practice, not a temporary answer. When a small dream is realized, visualize a larger one. Recreate your dream consistently and visualize it often. (The power of this practice can be utilized in many areas of life. )
