A Love Supreme: New Moon & Eclipse Cycle Ushering in The Return of the Evening Star

I find it’s only when something is trying to come through  I really practice. And then . . .  I don’t know how many hours. It’s all day.
~ John Coltrane

Happy Newest of the Years. I hope you are feeling good today. Even if you wanna say you’re not (good, awesome, clear). Hope you are able to cherish this time of the stripping away & find some truth there. I know . . . truth is relative & we are all doing the best we can.
The idea that we can ever truly know what is right for anyone else, that we could possibly know what another person is thinking or expect them to understand us . . .  this idea is such a burden.

How about we say in 2018 we cannot make assumptions about  ANYONE else’s experience?

And that, because of this unknowing ~ any efforts to control another person’s behavior is such a huge waste of energy. That, in absolutely every situation, we collectively can save enough personal electrical energy & empower ourselves with surrender, love & light that it will create a reservoir, enough to melt the resistance of those  who do not understand love (& all that suffer from their lack of understanding).

It is worth a try. Venus is in the house. True Love.

It doesn’t really matter what you do, as long  as your heart is open.

The upcoming New Moon in Capricorn (this coming Tuesday, January 16 at 9:17 pm) is conjunct Venus. This means that both the Sun & Moon are conjunct Venus & just last week, on January 9, the Sun & Pluto were conjunct with Venus.

Venus is a planet that lives close to us on Earth. She illuminates how our values interact with our need & expression of intimacy & love. She is a personal planet. Usually the ramifications of her movements
are something that affect us intimately, more privately.

It is interesting that she is featured so prominently this particular lunar cycle. It is the first eclipse season post that  earth/paradigm shattering Full Solar Eclipse on August 21.

The next days are a good time to ponder the events of the last 5-6 months of your life. The decisions, disruptions, red flags, gifts of the last 6 months are the beginnings of your new Weltanschauung or innate understanding of the universe.

Whether or not you have surrendered yet, it is  true that everything is new. This can definitely be disorienting. You can resent it. You can resist it. Or you take your get-out-of-jail-free card & start a whole new world. In your heart. In your own backyard.

But back to Venus. I will be sharing more in a month or two, when Venus truly shows herself above the horizon bright & clear, right after sunset, as The Evening Star. However in actuality, in the realm where things exist that you must belief even if you cannot prove it with your eyes, Venus passed the Sun a few days ago & is indeed in the twilight of the night sky.

She has returned. The beautiful path of Venus, a perfect algorithm illustrated above, is a 5 pointed star of above & below. She regularly guides us as the brightest star of the morning & night sky & her ‘descent’ or absence when she passes in between these very different definitions of Evening & Morning Star affects us on a cellular level.

We deeply feel what we think to be the absence of love.

It tests us. It tries our faith. We rant & we rave. However, if we let it,
this absence of love actually proves to us the continuum of presence,
of a larger container of care, of a Love Supreme.

Not a Love we can control.
Not a pretty, convenient Love.
But a Love that forms us.

Love always returns.
Absence teaches us how to love.
Discomfort teaches us what comfort is.
Tragedy drives prayer, drives Faith.

Unfortunate but true.

We are human beings.

We are weirdly designed to play hard ball.
We don’t have to play it that way, but it is our default.
It is how we learn.

If you remember, I said above  that Venus is not only about love
but also about values. I think that is key in our what we are examining in this segue between eclipse realities & why Venus is leading the way ~ & (especially with last week’s conjunction with Pluto) ~ Love’s values are in the forefront of every conundrum on the planet right now.

What is at the heart of racial understanding?
What is at the heart of economic parity?
What is at the heart of sustainable living?
What is at the heart of gender equity?

Values & Love.

Take the next days to see how what you love reflects your values.

How can you love more? More clearly, with less attachment to outcome.

No matter what.

Not for a specific reason.

As a daily practice.

Do what you can today, right now to open your heart & keep it open.

Don’t worry about the small stuff.

Don’t worry about the big stuff.

Make an altar in your heart for this New Moon & upcoming Eclipse Season.

Behind your judgments is a vulnerability.

Put that vulnerability on your altar.

What Belongs To You Will Come To You: Step By Step Instructions For A Powerful 2018

We are so fortunate to have so many opportunities to begin again.

You can start your New Year at any time of course:
Day of the Dead, Winter Solstice,  The first day of Spring, your Birthday, this very moment, right now, that you are reading this. But there is something about January 1 as arbitrary as it is, that carries so much power if only be because of the collective rolling celebration all over this world as the numbers shift, the ball drops,
the hugs & kisses . . . the coming together.

You feel it when you wake up on New Years Day. No matter what the weather everything feels erased & clear, forgiven, golden & ultimately possible.

So whoever came up with all this Happy New Year fuckery, here we are my beloveds.

Happy New Year.

Let’s ride this mother fucking wave because if Mama is gonna get fucked let’s treat her like the ABSOLUTE QUEEN that she is.

And, as we would all so fortunately have it ~ She is Us & We are She.

This is the Real Deal.

Show up.
Level up.
Own up.
Lift up.

THERE IS ONLY YOU.

And I love you as I love myself.

As I so often quote from the Course in Miracles:

None of us are healed until all of us are healed ~ & there is only one of us here.

You.

Sooooooooooo, no matter how many different ways I have cajoled you here, no matter how bored you may be with my rap ~ or even worse! no matter how comforted you are that I will continue to mama you & tell you everything is gonna be alright . . . NOW IS THE TIME.

Now is the time to heal yourself.
No one else is going to heal you.
No love is gonna make your life shine.
No movie/rock star agent is gonna find you drinking yr coffee & offer you a deal.
No guru is gonna be your god.

You are everyone.
You hold the world in your hand.
You hold the cure for all fatal illness in your heart.
You are The New Year.
You are everyone.
You are community.
Right now.
In your pajamas.
In your possible food/alcohol/weed/etc hangover.
In your naked self.
You are the world.

Now that makes everything a whole lot easier because you do not need to wait for anyone else to wake up & get their shit together.

You have the key right there. In your beautiful, blinking eyes & uber shiny hopeful heart.

AND YOU ARE POWERFUL.

This is what to do:

1. Assess the situation RIGHT NOW.
How do you feel, in all honesty.
What is the longing?
What is the wound?
What is missing?

If you are feeling awesome in the moment {Yay} take a moment to find the key repetitive scenario that you have been carrying over year after year & use this for your investigation.

2. Identify the bottomline emotion: fear, disappointment, shame, anger, sadness.

3. Locate this emotion in your body & do not resist it. Feel the holding. Find it. You can let it go. Believe & do it. Focus. Your body & brain can speak with each other if only for a moment.

4. Breathe.

5. No matter how much therapy you have done, no matter how many times you have visited this very emotion, feel it in your body & move right now. Just a tremor will do. This is Celebration. Enjoy.

6. Make some time for yourself. Write down the times you have felt this exact way: in your mind, in your body. Start now & move backward. Do not dwell on the details. Detach with love from your suffering. Keep a little shake in there when you need it. Just do it. With love.

7. Look at these notes. Look at the longing. See what you have been asking for. You have been asking for something. See it there. Over & Over.

8. In some form, in this very day, in this New Year,  give yourself what you have been asking for. TAKE ACTION.

9. Continue to take action. Obvious, intentional action. On this very thing. Give yourself what you are longing for. You can do this. There is no doubt. You can do this.

Self love is not boring. Giving yourself something you have been waiting for someone else to give you is not giving up.

If you have read this through & you think you have  seen this before, you probably have. I did not make this kind of healing up.

But the answer is TAKE ACTION.
The answer is IT IS ONLY YOU.
The answer is FORGIVE YOURSELF.
The answer is MAKE IT REAL.

In this healing, you bring food to starving children. In this healing, you bring new growth to the decimated forests. In this healing, you bring peace.

For we truly need to get over ourselves to move on. In this personal liberation, you bring hope & everyone can breathe.

The Interior Castle: The Sagittarius New Moon & Winter Solstice

“The path of meditation has been critical, because I’m a very passionate person. And I have learned to actually down-regulate & to become more sensitive without being hyper-aroused, which would cause me to withdraw.

A near enemy to compassion is sorrow. And that’s that sorrow, that’s me getting wrecked by the picture of the child in the newspaper so that I can’t actually help them.

This is why I meditate. To be useful.”

~ Joan Halifax

This is my favorite time of year. Not because of the Christmas music & the gifts, but because of the looming darkness.

Yep, I am one of those freaks that love the short days, the fire, the long dreaming nights. The same way I love the time before dawn. Sometimes I think I have missed my calling as a true monastic but then again . . I love to dance in the sun too much.

Actually it was in my contemplation on the dark that I recently was reflecting on the writings of Plato & specifically the famous allegory of The Cave ~ (I suggest you check it out but here is a  very simple version) ~

There is a civilization living in cave that are experiencing life through a continual play of shadows on the wall, basically a puppet show that is run by someone behind them, placing objects before a fire. This puppet master also creates the voices & this is all the people know. They are shackled. They are prisoners.

Above them people walk freely & experience a whole other life of true living, breathing form.

We all have our version of this. Our stories. Our excuses. Our matrixes. I plead with you here to take a moment. Do not think of this as a cliche. That you are already awake. We are all in some version of the cave. There are so many ways to wake up.

In the story of the Cave, Plato speaks about how difficult it is to turn one’s head & stare into the fire & know the truth. How even more terrifying it is to step into the light outside. To move one’s feet & body freely.

This is the invitation. To move freely. To see. To understand the power of the cave. To be compassionate. To be useful.

And it is the absolutely perfect time of year to take some time for deep listening. To prepare yourself to let go. To not continually engage with the negative deluge of information & find the true invitation.

I support you.

“The increased pace of data you have to process is beyond your capability as a biological organism to cope with & you are shifting ~ as a culture ~ to a technologically-based reality.

As a result of this dependence upon technology you are entering a type of techno-servitude . . . Were you a truly benevolent species, the acceleration of your technological culture could advance the quality of all life, but you are not collectively a benevolent species. And some of the newly emerging technologies that could enhance planetary life are being commandeered by forces that wish to control & enslave.

From one perspective what you are experiencing in your world is catastrophic in nature. From another perspective it is a highly potent evolutionary catalyst. In other words, the metamorphosis of your world could destroy you or propel you into higher states of consciousness. The choice, at an individual level, between personal destruction or an ascent into a higher dimensional reality is yours.”

~ The Hathors

(Here is a link to the full transmission from The Hathors received this November)

This month’s Lunar Prayer is a perfect way to begin your new practices with integrity. The Sagittarius New Moon (December 18) falls just a few days before Winter Solstice. It is the ultimate seat of wisdom: a perfect time to connect with the unknown & set your deepest intentions in place.

THE SAGITTARIUS/CANCER LUNAR PRACTICE
{Including Winter Solstice & New Year Prayers}

This Month’s Theme: THE INTERIOR CASTLE

When you have grown still on purpose while everything around you is asking for your chaos, you will find the doors between every room of this interior castle thrown open, the path home to your true love unobstructed after all. Waste no time. Enter the center of your soul.

~ St Teresa of Avila

It has been an incredibly rigorous year & you have done quite well. It has been an honor to support you in your relentless intentions to be  the person you know yourself to me.

The path that has haunted you from birth as well as the burden of all the misconceptions & seemingly false paths (nothing is by accident), have led you to this moment in time, a clearing in your personal & historic chaos.

One the one hand, this miraculous lunar cycle may feel like merely a respite, a place to feed & clothe yourself, rest up before the next weary journey.

However, if you have the ability to employ both stillness & rigorous honesty, this time in the Interior Chapel can be a time of homecoming.

To truly inhabit & furnish this place of authentic soul purpose is yours. You have earned it. Let me support you in staying. Staying & trusting.

This is your personal invitation to THE INTERIOR CASTLE : The Sagittarius/Cancer Lunar Practice.

THE MONTHLY  LUNAR PRAYER PRACTICE

Be Who You Are: Full Moon In Gemini, Chiron & Neptune Direct & Mercury Retrograde

Shimmy up to your screens for a moment & let’s snuggle. I am feeling really good this morning & it is a blessed relief. I am a bit of psychic pressure barometer & though I love the prospect of  not being a muggle in the slightest, this kind of gift comes with what may be
interpreted as a downside. I say “may” be interpreted because it is
no secret that I believe it all to be opportunity {particularly the uncomfortable}.

Over the last couple of years, I have woken up at my beloved pre-dawn Amrit & 9 times out of 10, I have felt nauseous & dizzy with a heaviness in my heart. I am blessed to have many healers  in my circle of friends & family & it became quite clear that many others felt the same & that much of this was viral, a sensitivity to loss, grief & suffering of global or universal proportion & that while I was sleeping, I was continually entering that open field.

It is a field that we are all sensitive to, some of us more than others. Whether or not you have felt the same {And I suspect many of you have} I am sure all of us are sleeping & dreaming,  exposed to this miasma.

What is the opportunity here, you may ask? If you have even a sneaking suspicion that you may have felt these things, then you have assisted in the auspicious transition of energy that is now coming more fully into our consciousness, your awareness working as a filter, helping to clear the global consciousness of archaic thought patterns, thought patterns & emotions that are no longer relevant (some may never have been relevant) & that have become sticky & addictive for many.

Call it the Age of Aquarius, The Ascenscion or the End of Patriarchy . . . .  the clearing is here. Hallelujah.

Suddenly in the last week, I have woken most mornings free & clear of the aforementioned miasma & I have many sisters & brothers that I trust  who are reporting the same.

Something is moving & this Full Moon is a good time to begin to clean up the mess that may have accumulated, like a tissue strewn floor after the flu.

Take a shower, anoint your body with flowers & oil, get out your most sacred outfit. I guarantee your heart & soul have been waiting for this, even if it still feels hard,especially if it still feels hard.

As always, a Sacred Gateway is not something that one watches or waits for. It invites your participation. The final Cosmic Trigger of 2017 (December 21st – 25th) comes after a period of very strong influxes.
Some of you may be experiencing the vertigo & disorientation of this initial wave (December 1~7). That is expected to increase as the dimensional-shifting, consciousness-shifting light grows more intense.
Hold your hearts dare-angels, we are stronger than we realize.

~ Sandra Walter

The 411 in the Ascension realms that I  listen to have predicted this opening for a while. To be honest ~ after so many years of  feeling like I am sleeping on the frontlines,  I had begun to believe that this feeling of being stretched & squeezed was the new bottom line.

Don’t get me wrong, there is still more work ahead but what has given way, or is beginning to give way, is the obstacle of addiction to past patterns. That is, if you believe this to be true. The opening has been there for a while, but the invitation now is to complete the psychic surgery.

JUST DO IT.
NOW.

What I am saying is this: If you are aware of something that is calling you, if you can taste freedom & the freedom of others close to you, if you know you are capable of standing tall,
YOU ARE SUPPORTED.

Believe this.
It is true.

OK here are the technical details:

~ Yes Mercury goes retrograde today. If you need a refresher on what it means  when a planet goes retrograde, HERE is an ancient video I made. Still works ~ an oldie but goodie. Mercury retrograde is a TOTAL opportunity. You will go over a karmic point in your chart
3 TIMES.

You obviously needed this.

~ Mercury is conjunct Saturn. Which means that your field of vision
is severely narrowed. I don’t think I need to tell you  this is also an opportunity.

Like a dog on a short leash, your path is waiting.

~ At the same time as this disciplinary action is taking place, the Moon {& Sun) is in almost exact aspect to both Jupiter & Neptune . . . .  which means the veil is lifted, the light is almost blinding, all your psychic/empathic gifts are in full gear & this might be highly confusing. But only if you let it.

YOU KNOW THE TRUTH. THE TRUTH FEELS GOOD ONCE YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. GOOD IS RELATIVE. FEELING GOOD MAY NOT BE WHAT YOU THINK.

Use this as a guide: If you feel constricted, tense, apprehensive
or like the other shoe is going to drop, you are not feeling good. Most addictions do not feel good, even (or especially) the subtle emotional ones.

Most importantly: STOP PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM WHAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

Ok, I think you are ready now.

I love you.

The Dark Moon, The End Of Saturn/Chiron PTSD & The Scorpio/Gemini Lunar Prayer

Last night at around midnight, the Moon passed into Scorpio & will be fully engaged in the New Moon at the very end of Scorpio tomorrow morning at 6:42 East Coast.

This long build up in Scorpio is referred to as the Dark Moon & it is rare that we hold that space of darkness for a full day (*or longer in this case).

What this means for you *(& I realize I am sending this so late, I am deep deep deep in my own transfiguration at the moment, keep me close to your heart) is to take whatever time you can for ultra-contemplation.

Take this time as A LUXURY, the most necessary of luxuries. This point of stillness, this shuniya, is the absolute most healing & spiritually nutrient rich thing you can do for yourself, that you can do for the world.

It means so much. I thank you in advance.

Wherever you are ~ Whoever you are ~ Whatever your beliefs are about the matrix of creation & these times . . . . take the time today
& this weekend to clear space for the Beloved.

Allow yourself, in the privacy of your own  sacred space, to fully invite in whatever  The Beloved means to you & LISTEN.

Take your time.

We are in the early season training for the most beautiful Winter Solstice perhaps of our lifetime. We are being visited daily by divine beings who are so invested in our protection & welfare & who depend on our willingess to explore options outside of our comfort zone.

This is why I implore you to take the time. It’s like bootcamp for the soul. Get quiet. Get still. Ask for guidance. Listen.

A few weeks ago, just after Samhain, we completed the Saturn square Chiron transit that had occurred several times  over the past year.

What this meant for us, collectively & individually, was a confrontation with the deepest & most repetitive of wounds: the places where we guard our most wild & free natures & where we feel we have been done wrong.

Protecting ourselves & licking our wounds when feeling vulnerable
(totally natural & intuitive) becomes a stuck place quickly. What we learned (hopefully) this year or were encouraged to examine is how innately courageous & powerful we are, each & every one of us, & that in this place of the deepest wound is where we are initiated into the front guard.

This is where we absolutely must take the invitation to be of service, to rise & lead.

Prayer For The Day Of The Dead: Wake Up Before Dawn & Open Your Eyes

Today is the day to celebrate all things spooky. It brings a smile to my face just to say it: spooky, spooky, spooky. I bet you love to say it too.

I don’t need to remind you that this is the day {& through the night until tomorrow} where the veil is thin, where your ancestors are close, where it really doesn’t take much to settle in, get quiet, listen deeply & feel some wisdom in your bones.

So after you are done trick or treating & playing with your friends,
take some time in the dark much, much later tonight, actually tomorrow morning, before dawn, to set an altar for your beloveds
on the other side.

Invite them in for some tea & maybe a song.

They love you. They really, really, really love you.

Contemplation, silence, complete & utter confidence in the dark, in the place in core of things that is the truth of each & every one of you is the realm of The Hag, The Crone, The Queen of Darkness, The Vastness, The Origin of all things.

The Native Americans say the Creator has more time for us when all is quiet & everyone else is asleep. The Sikhs call this time Amrit Vela or the Nectar time. It is this time of each day when the “veil” of the ego (limited self) is thinnest & we can mindfully observe all the negative habits that lead us away from health, physical stamina, wholeness & higher consciousness, neutralizing the desires that underlie those habits, one by one.

When I have sat up in Vision Quest up on the mountain staring into the night, I actually witnessed this moment, this clearing. Although I had no clock, I could feel the night as it turned, just past midnight. I could hear the forest getting less & less busy. It continued to be noisy for many hours, but as if a volume dial was being incrementally
turned & then, just before dawn, the deeper chill hit & the pure vibration began.

Even if  you don’t make it to that altar at dawn, take some time today or tomorrow to sit with the poem below:

Today

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

– By Mary Oliver

Sit with yourself.
Get into your bones.
Peer into your cells.
See your prayer there.
See the journey you have taken this crazy, auspicious year.
Feel the distance you have traveled:
this year,
your whole long beautiful & wild life.
Enter the temple of you.
Look around.
Bow in gratitude to all of it.

I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

Listen.

Pay Attention.

Write yourself a little something
to remember & hold close.

#MeToo, The Beauty Way & The Pleasure Principle: Navigating Freedom On This New Moon

It has certainly been an amazing week.

All of the prophecies are coming through & the definition/interpretation of what it means when one refers to the return of the feminine & goddess rising is updating minute by minute.

What a perfect time to be a little more focused with your prayers, aligning with the upcoming Lunar momentum ruled this cycle by Venus in both Libra (New Moon) & Taurus (Full Moon).

Venus rules creativity, harmony, beauty, love & receptivity. At the moment she is preparing for her descent  into the underworld, transforming from her Maiden identity as the Morning Star in the beginning of November, going deeper & deeper within until she re-emerges as the Evening Star in late January.

This transformation mirrors the story of Persephone (or the story of Persephone mirrors that of Venus), her kidnapping & descent into the Underworld, where her maidenhood is stolen from her through her relations with the God of the Underworld.

Whatever happens there, as controversial & troubling as it may seem, it is here Persephone individuates from her Mother, & becomes Queen, Mother, Enchantress in full power.

The story is complex & I have many conflicting ideas about this transformation, but this much I know is true,Venus/Persephone calls us to fully own a feminine based idea of beauty & pleasure,
that is defined by no one but ourselves.

For centuries the pleasure principle has been as subjugated & marginalized as woman herself. Of course, pleasure does not only belong to women, but pleasure & it’s relationship with the continuation of both nature & the world is definitely contingent
on the feminine orgasm. The expression of female pleasure has been historically (or at least in recent history) controlled & utilized for the misaligned status quo of the male gaze & has therefore been inherently tampered with & toxified, creating much of the imbalances that we see in nature & in pour bodies.

This is what must change & this change will benefit all peoples. It is all of our responsibility.

It is in vulnerability that the true power lies. Vulnerability does not mean victim. It does not mean licking your wounds. It does not mean playing small. It does not mean blame. It means the freedom to be who you are. The freedom to be beautiful as you are & to walk in pleasure without the need to inordinately protect oneself.

Everyone benefits from The Beauty Way.

The Aries Full Moon: The Harvest, The Impulse For Power, The Horse You Are Riding NOW

Here we are at the Full Moon in Aries. It is the Harvest Moon, usually experienced in late September closer to the Equinox. It is traditionally the time when all your hard work pays off, the food is off the vine & the trees, the fields are being laid to rest.

We all know that the work is hardly done when the food is off the vine, particularly those of use whose natural inclination or spot on the chore wheel (of life) is to feed the people. More on feeding the people in  a minute. But yes, it is good to take a break & survey the season of growing & to plan for the winter ahead.

Yep, you know I love GOT.

Winter is coming.

I want to encourage you to enjoy yourself & breathe this Full Moon. We, all of us, passed through the eye of the needle this summer, whether we believed in this transition or not, whether we cared, whether we paid attention.

We are all living in the new world. A world where our DNA contains more strands. A world where we are capable of time travel & deeper telepathy. A world where, more than ever, we are operating as one living, breathing organism. A world where the Earth energy is leading. A world where we must pay attention, for each day this evolution is racing ahead. A world that will not be the same next week as it is today.

So take a moment & breathe. Do something super nice for yourself today. And if this acknowledgement of your efforts to stay afloat, to stay present, to stay positive bring tears to your eyes, let them flow & know that you are not alone.

It is a lot that is being asked of us  at this time, but it is all in our favor. It is all part of something we asked for at some point, when our souls chose this life. After a many year hiatus from working actively as an astrologer, I have been working more deeply & intuitively with more people than ever deciphering these codes we chose as evolved beings, before we were born.

In these crystalline moments between lives, our highest selves chose lives that were of the most divine purpose, that fit into the purpose of the life that came before & the one that will follow (for it will).
It chose a life that would fit into the matrix of all the other lives here at this time. It did not choose happiness or success. It chose the most perfect, meaningful life.

When you are in despair, when you feel all is lost, you are usually off this alignment. You have lost your way. Most times, it is because you
believe things should be other than they are, right now.

You are resisting yourself. Your truth. Your calling.

And if that causes heaviness in your heart, I can guarantee you, your path is probably only centimeters away from where you are standing right now.

I want to give you one simple piece of advice:

Let things come to you.

Now you might be saying, “I am waiting”
“I am ready”
“Nothing works”
“I tried.”

Most of the time, we are ahead of our experience. We have lived a long time, we have seen many things. We see something coming our way. A horse for instance. We say to ourselves, “That is a horse, I know what a horse is, I have known many horses, I rode a horse once, I remember a brown horse, a golden horse, a spotted horse . . .”

And then we no longer see the horse in front of us.

This happens all the time, many times a day. We stop life. We protect ourselves from experiencing. We lose our thread with the gifts that are coming in, every minute.

Just for today, notice when you interrupt someone. Notice when you look away. Stay one minute more, 5 minutes more.

Listen.

Remember, the world is completely new.

Sick Of The Eclipse Already? How To Break Through The Bullshit & Learn A Few (Totally) Magic Tricks

“Revisit your intentions: the vibrational match of forgiveness, gratitude, service, unity & unconditional Love are key  to leveling up everyone.  Reflect the highest intent in your lifestream & align with the vibration of solution, creativity, Divine Love & embodiment of your Highest Self”

~ Sandra Walter

I am not going to lie, it has taken me three painful days  to commit to writing this post to you.

What has gotten in the way?

Perhaps you can relate . . . a malaise has settled in my heart without an invitation . . . something that is both familiar & virtually untraceable. A seemingly empathic, psychic flu making it both impossible to be around people & also bone-crushingly sad to imagine (no not just imagine ~ feel, grieve, weep) all the other souls on the planet whose discomfort levels exponentially exceed my own.

I am not being melodramatic. Again, I am assuming that many of you can relate. Astrology has become the new extreme weather pattern.

I remember in the past how storms would  come by surprise, without days of prediction & lines out the door in the supermarket. When we could wake up in wonder of the deluge or buffer of snow, unprepared for the suspension of activity.

When a blizzard allowed us to just be. Stillness. The absence of form. The absence of movement.

Now it is all preparation.

Same is true with Astrology: Huge Super Moon Coming. Lunar Nodes are Shifting Signs. Biggest Eclipse in god knows . . . 2000 years . . . .

We all know too much.

It’s real, this Eclipse & its gonna be big. We would be better off if we experienced this life out of time flooding into our cells with wonder & dreaming by surrendering to being exhausted & resting without guilt.

It’s really ok to just say “Uncle” (never knew what that meant exactly but . . . ) It’s really ok to not fix the world. It’s really ok to not fight the good fight. Because what is being asked of us
RIGHT NOW is the big letting go, the biggest surrender of the need to know that most of us have experienced in our lifetimes.

I just screwed all of you . . . cause all you need to hear is
“don’t think about the eclipse, don’t micromanage the letting go” & that is ABSOLUTELY ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT.

I am thinking it too:  I got this one. I can do it.

It is so human. But not necessary. To know.

There is no miracle. The mind is infinite when it concentrates the magnetic energy of the psyche. There are only two things: energy and matter. Any composition, permutation of any energy into matter and matter into energy, can be caused by a disciplined mental concentration.
That mental concentration is in you, it is not outside.

~ Yogi Bhajan

For centuries it has been recorded that under certain circumstances human consciousness can leave the body & travel both to other locations of existence outside the human body. This process has been known by many names but in recent years all variations of these “journeys” have been grouped under the generic term:  “Out of Body Experiences.”

Within the modern paradigm of science, such a concept is totally impossible. Consciousness is an phenomenon of the brain & as such, cannot exist in any location outside of the brain. Even if consciousness could travel to locations outside of the confines of the skull a further question has to be asked; without sensory organs such as the eyes & the ears (in the body) how can we (in our out of the body experiences) receive information from the external world?

I am not a scientist of course, but I have spent thousands of hours in meditative states via a variety of practices & have spent much time with this question.

I think the question to ask here is  not about hallucinations or visions
of time/space travel but more of creating a situation for yourself in which these parameters of time & space are not so important.

To create a situation where you do not need to locate yourself & therefore do not need to understand anything. This situation is perhaps not simple to locate in the current mash of urgency & chaos that we accept from outside sources as reality, but is actually within each of our cells, a totally organic reality ~ & that reality is stillness.

In most meditative practices there is an elevated state of consciousness where the ego (inner voices/perception) is brought to complete stillness.

This is not just relaxing. A power exists there. 

In this place of stillness, we do not hassle or try to act. With total humility & patience we accept our inability to fix or define anything
& Infinity (Divinity, God, Source, Nature) acts for us.

What we need will come to us. The opportunity will reveal itself. No need to know. No need to fix or wrangle.

The Multi-verse, the very stuff of life, is loving & kind. Your place is guaranteed.

In these next weeks heading through The Partial Lunar Eclipse on the Full Moon of August 7, The Lion’s Gate on August 8 (when the Earth lines up with the Galactic Center) & then the Full Solar Eclipse on August 21, (passing over the United States in the daylight hours) the absolute best thing you can do for yourself
is to enter into stillness.

Whether we work together or you forage on your own, my advice to you is to work without substances (even plant spirit medicines) in this preparation & take the time to clear some actual space in your life to learn how to navigate the magic of Zero Point Consciousness
for yourself.

I also recommend NOT traveling on the eclipse or on days in close proximity. Not because of danger, but because of the need for stillness. If you must travel, please take precautions to not be exposed to (much) external chaos, or sensory input.

This time is designed for you to slip between the cracks of the matrix to empower yourself. It may feel a bit threatening at first but all the discomfort of these times will prove worth it, if we can learn how to fly. Best to get there on your own steam. You will reap much momentum for your effortless life of purpose by doing so.

One last tool:

Even without the historical dimensions of this Summer’s Astral Activity, it is helpful at this time of year to tune into your personal cycles of growth by the organic momentum of the calendar.

Take some time in the coming weeks (sooner rather than later) to investigate what you have been growing since last Winter’s Solstice. These things are always more clear in hindsight.

Winter Solstice (December 21, 2016)
Your Unconscious Plants a Seed in the Darkness

Imbolc (February 2, 2017)
The Seed Stirs with Life in the Earth

Spring Equinox (March 20, 2017)
The Life in the Seed Begins to Specialize & Form Itself in a Specific Form

Beltane (May 1, 2017)
The Blossom is Infused with Light (Masculine/Feminine Meet)

Solstice (June 21, 2017)
The Blossom becomes Fruit/Food/Substance

Lamas (August 1, 2017)
The Fruit is Heavy with Potential & Prepares to Fall to the Ground
& Become Nourishment

This is where we are as we focus on Stillness, Surrender & Divine Service to ourselves & the World.

Settle into a new way to Celebrate.

I am here & I love you.

A Guide to this week’s Epic Solstice/New Moon Orifice: Generous Living, 4th & 5th Dimensional Reality & Beyond {Your Beauty}

“Our suggestion is to cleave away from your life the thought forms of self-sacrifice & martyrdom. Find more ways to discover joy even in the smallest things. It does not matter how small they are.

Find the courage to speak your truth to those closest to you. This type of truth speaking & self-revealing is, in our opinion, critical for your successful transition through the current & on-going period of global destabilization”
The Hathors

It’s been a big week of external manifestation. I am sure you are all feeling it ~  epic historical splashes flavored with grace & also with your own elegant twists & turns as you each speak your truth into the voids . . .

Early this morning or late last night we sailed over the high point of summer solstice ~ it felt a bit secret to me, what is usually a day in the sun with many friends, was spent in deep contemplation (compared to what hahahahaha) & staring into my own personal waters.

It’s an interesting twist when one of the  most externally manifesting astral holidays coincides with the urge to return to the cave that comes with the new moon.

What does that mean? It means that showing yourself, declaring yourself, joining with your tribe in the light, is given the ultimatum  that it must be a true statement of self utterly & completely true.

This is the gift of this present moment & all of this week. That any falsehood will feel so suffocating that you will not be able to hold onto a moment longer.

This is the stream, the momentum that will carry you, that is carrying you. It is here. Buy the ticket, take the ride. You are Queen. You are King. I love you.

I hope you all have some good solstice prayers & that you got good & clear, specific. If not, take the time to sit in the next days before the New Moon Friday.

You don’t know who is listening, or how many expectant helpers, guardians are waiting for your prayer.

You may have felt confused, in the last month for there was much chaos here on earth & in the cosmos, due to what the scientists call CMEs or Coronal Mass Ejections & what appear as a solar storm when they hit the earth.

CMEs are massive bursts of gas & magnetic fields arising from the solar corona & released into the solar wind. They are what cause all the beautiful skies that have been gracing Instagram & FB this summer & over the last years, mirrors of the Aurora Borealis,
almost out of control in celestial gorgeousness.

They are powerful, even in their random clouds, this energy, these particles. If they were to hit a specific hotspot here on earth, they could cause system collapses of international power grids.

They are always abundant at this time of year but they have been intensifying in general over the past few years.

What does this mean for our own ‘power grids’?

How does this influx of light affect  our personal electricity & energy?

The other night I dreamt I was in a thunderstorm in the forest & as lightning hit (I love love love thunder & lightning) a fireball crossed the sky, actually not just across the sky, it actually skimmed the tops of the trees.

It was terrifying & it was true. It reminded me of a moment in a particularly turbulent ceremony a few years back  ~ one of those ceremonies where all you could do is do your absolute best to not
duck your head & resist but rather breathe into your heart, straighten up your spine & pray. In the dark I saw the leader of the ceremony, a young Brazilian woman, stand up & spread her arms in the seeming hurricane that had entered the room & say “This is God.”

Hello Sun.

The growing light of the sun & stars, from the seasonal shift to the CMEs is full of invitation & activation, speaking directly to a cellular key within.

Just as the sun feeds the plants & creates chlorophyll, basically love in the form of a plant, the light acceleration is activating a memory system within that has been dormant for a very long time.

It is our job to receive this light transmission with as much elegance & gratitude as possible, even if it is confusing.

Many of you are feeling ‘in between worlds’ right now, not on this earthly plane but not in some place ‘safe’ either. Part of this light invitation is an invitation to another zone, kind of like a club house, another place to hang out in when the going gets tough, a place to recharge & learn a few things.

You may have heard relatively unintelligible rumblings out in the interwebs about transcending time & space, about the 4th dimension, the 5th dimension ad infinitum.

All of the disorienting, well, many of the disorienting feelings are connected to this invitation of the light acceleration & the key to entering the 5th dimension.

What is 4D? What is 5D?

Your embodied bio reality ~ eating, sleeping, walking, hugging, chopping wood, carrying water, making love is in the 3rd Dimension.

It is ruled by the 4th Dimension which is time. Or at least we feel ruled by it.

Our relationship with the 4th Dimension of Time, which often feels limiting & abrasive is mostly determined by our conditioning. Our mind creates these laws & they are ridiculously archaic.

Almost everything that doesn’t work on this planet, including war, economics, inequality on every level are created by our outdated
relationship with time.

In the 5th dimension, we are no longer “marooned by time & space”
(Tom Kenyon) ~ our personal history becomes a dream ~ & we are able to see, feel & exist in all time simultaneously, in all places simultaneously. There is no ownership, no domination, no limiting ratios to create limitation.

In the 5th dimension we are all free. {& onward, 6th, 7th, 8th . . . . . }

Another bonus to activating & entering the 5th dimension is that it takes a whole lot of wear & tear off the earth, if we start hanging out there & healing ourselves.

She can then breathe & take care of herself.

I know this sounds unrealistic. It’s a huge learning curve. Just saying this information is available as we move through these major astrological configurations & magnetic disturbances. Just like going to a library, you can check out this info at your leisure, learn some tools, they are available for you now, like the newest system download.

In the last few weeks, I have been using the analogy  of how the computer completely changed our lives with clients. It seems so de rigueur now, but those of us who were full grown when they arrived, it was such a huge learning curve & we could barely move our fingers.

Think of anything that you learned that initially seemed beyond you,
handling the huge vehicle of a car, touching a musical instrument that you longed to master.

This is where we are right now with these new tools of community, of manipulating time & space.

I am doing my best to learn about these things so I can teach & help.

There are many beautiful teachers. I am grateful to be one of yours.

Be careful what you wish for. Yikes & LOVE.

It’s just like dreaming with a few more knobs & dials & points of entry.

Do not be afraid of this. It is happening already, anyway, we can all feel the challenges upon us, best to see them as I have described ~ as an invitation. Something exciting. No resistance. One day, one step at a time. Opening. Believing. Grace.
