The Deep Octave of No Thought

This past week I drove 16 hours, alone and in one day, with monster clouds at the dark end of the drive. The next day, I had my Dark Moon in the Personal Lunar Cycle. The Dark Moon in both Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles is like no gas in the tank. We empty out; this is the ebb before the flow at the start of the next cycle.

On these days last week, I was tired to the point of speechlessness; an eviscerating stripping of all that was nonessential. In the midst of that tiredness was the absence of thought. I was too tired to think!

In these writings I often mention that with the shift to 5D we operate from sensate experience rather than through the thought plane of 3D. While I have practiced this new way quite a lot, I have not ever experienced the complete and surrounding absence of thought as I did last week.

This experience brought me to a deeper octave of “no thought.” Trying to articulate the experience is challenging, because the experience is beyond words. There was a calmness, a penetrating stillness and safety with it that I noticed, loved and appreciated.

Despite being in the midst of a transcontinental move, and the packing and saying goodbyes and hellos associated with this move, and baseline life with work and laundry, cooking and cleaning, there was nothing to think about; energy was applied to being; to breathing and feeling physicality in a simplified, atmospherically reverberating way. (Animate in a Living, Loving, Responsive Field.)

I want more of this deep octave of no thought. It was warm and comforting with a pervasive sense of presence in All is Well.

In this New Field of the 5th Dimension and beyond, we are informed in each moment. Thinking short-circuits present moment awareness. Thought takes away possibilities, received through sensate knowing and intuition. Yes, this is a whole new way of being.

This past week I had a deep and direct experience of freedom from thought. One metaphoric description might be “Heaven on Earth.” In my direct experience, it is a whole new dimension of presence and it is awesome.

Have you considered practicing absence of thought? It is one  way of opening to living in the present moment. A great, international teacher on this topic is Eckhart Tolle. He has books, a website and many YouTube videos with which to start your practice, if you are interested.

I welcome questions and comments about your experience releasing thought as a main access to life. I am available as a teacher and companion guide if you would like assist on this courageous journey.

Moving away from the Eye of the Storm

Seven weeks ago I entered into a negotiation to move to a new place in a new town. This move is packed with emotion and mystery and feelings not yet fully processed. Feelings like vulnerability, confusion and willingness.

During the initial meeting, the other party and I agreed on a timeline. Throughout these past seven weeks I checked in regularly regarding the timeline, with no response.

Then, finally, a reply confirming a mandated deadline; As I prepared to leave, I received word that needed documentation was not complete and could I help? For the past seven weeks I had offered to help and this offer was always declined; in the last minute, such help was needed.
My frustration level was red hot over something I had no control over. There was not one thing I could do to get an earlier, easier response, despite a month of trying.

The physical effects of my frustration were alarming: Red face, blood boiling, foot-stomping, fist-raising anger with loud, fast talking. I was able to calm myself and my frustration level abated, enough for me to ask, “Why am I in such a situation?” I stuck one toe into that pondering pool as day went into night.

And what a dark and stormy night it was. Winds of 75 miles an hour blew screens out of the windows. Lighting was so consistent that the sky was bright white for extended periods during the middle of the night. Thunder echoed deep rumbling within me.

That morning, travel bans were in place, as down trees blocked roads, live wires presented danger and a power outage affected tens of thousands of people over a wide region. The power outage for my area lasted 18 hours. The power for internet connection was out 36 hours.

It is quite an experience to live without power for lengths of time. We have to resort to ourselves, deep within, without conveniences, virtual communications or distractions. My gratitude goes out to all of the men and women who work to return access to power we have accepted as norm. My prayers also go out for universal solar power, for the benefit of all and for freedom from power outages!

There are many lessons for me in this stormy experience. A main lesson is to get out of the eye of the storm.

As human beings we have to work with and depend on others. We are also working in a living Field of Energy that is quantum leaps above conscious understanding or willful natures.
Cooperators and collaborators, at least on the first go-round, and unless our intuition informs otherwise, deserve consideration that they, too, are doing the best that they can. If, after multiple encounters with a particular person or group, there is consistent failure to come through, that is another case.

There are many delays in life plans these days. It can be frustrating to the point of adverse effect on our physical bodies. This week I saw that it is my choice whether I stay in the path of the storm when things do not seem to be going my way — I can let my body get agitated to the intensity of a 75 mile an hour wind, or, I can trust the Universe. I can trust that my stated intentions, wishes, wants have been heard and that their fulfillment is in the works. The Living Field works with me and on my behalf, way past the level of my mental comprehension. I can retreat from the path of the storm, as the great martial arts masters teach, and choose to do something else with my time and attention, instead of staying focused on the issue like a dog with a bone.

With the multidimensional frequencies of the New Now, force does not apply. Effortlessness and ease are hallmarks of the 5th Dimension. That does not mean that results are imminent; it does mean that a Living Field is at work, along with other people and me, on any particular endeavor. Mental understanding or willfulness cannot scope the whole picture. To rest within this collaborative Field, I buy into these underlying premises:

My intentions, wishes, wants have been heard and the Living Field works on my behalf.

Stubborn willfulness hurts and prolongs the agony of separation and helplessness.

I do not know the whole story; I can honour my own requests to the Universe by waiting and moving out of the eye of the storm.

The other party is, often, doing the best they can even if I do not understand their choices.

Evidence repeatedly shows that I can buy into these premises. It requires release of willfulness and attempts to force. Willfulness and forcing are learned and deeply conditioned responses from earlier times. They no longer function so well now. Willfulness is stubborn, yet it does melt with soft approach.

Let it Be

To this day, I am in awe of the inspiration behind the Paul McCartney 1970 song, Let it Be.

In process of this shift into the 5th Dimension, I notice a subtle, yet distinct contrast between letting it be and letting it go. Letting it go implies a level of entanglement where I have to release something. When I let it be, I am not caught up in it, I can allow whatever it is, personal or collective, to flow like water over the rocks or to float like a cloud in the sky, constantly moving. I let it be and move on to each new unfolding moment.

As I read online writings and FB posts of private and public people, I am aware of a growing living Field of conscious energy within and around us. This wisdom field highlights personal choice regarding getting caught up in fear. There is a burgeoning invitation to release all in Love.

This choice is clearer to discern when we are in active process of disarming our own shadows, those deep, often conditioned, subconscious, automatic reflexes that overshadow our base of Love. We can investigate shadow responses, identify them, feed them their true need, which they can reveal when asked, and then bless and release them. Free of these constricting conditionings we can then Let It Be.

Reading the genesis story of McCartney’s song reveals Let It Be is a timeless anthem and a true gift for now. Gratitude to Paul McCartney’s Mother, to him and to each and every one of us who can bring this song to life. May we perfect the practice of letting it be and may this line in the song be prophetic:

“When all the broken-hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be.”

Let it be

 

 

Recalibration

Dear Intuitives,

As the pressures mounted, I took a time out. I had a lie down, with feet propped up above the level of my heart, eyes closed and with right hand on middle of my heart area and left hand below my abdomen. After a few slow deep breaths, in through my nose, out through my mouth I came to calm center and then journeyed further inward for a conversation with my Inner Teacher.

The reveal was that I am changing channels. I am in the process of switching from life lived mentally to life lived by feelings, sensate knowing and body wisdom.

I am not the only one making this shift, so please take a minute to consider how big of a shift this is for those of us in this process. This shift represents an entire new way of being, living, experiencing, relating.

I write often about living from sensate experience rather than living by thought. Last week, though, I had direct awareness, a come home to Mama moment, where I actually lived it.

This shift shows up in simple ways; instead of thinking that I am thirsty, I go get a drink of water. This way of sensate living is more present moment; it is immediate, direct, no time or energy wasted.

We are in this quantum shift. International news confirms that the old structures no longer contain status quo (violence in the US, Brexit, the US political process, among others.) The uncontrollable chaos of the current stage of shift bloody hurts.

As human beings living in a loving, constantly evolving Universe, our innate nature is kindness and our unique nature is consciousness. We are transitioning to a new dimension where conscious kindness is the norm. Presence in each moment, attuned to what we feel and what we need, helps get us there.

Please share in the comments section below your experiences of coping with the intensity of the chaos stage of shift now and/or how you are opening to a more felt experience of living, rather than thinking.

The Nature of Multidimensional Living

Multidimensional living calls for supreme self-care. We have to adjust to this new way of being because the tools and techniques we used no longer work. We are in the land of not knowing and we get by through paying attention to sensate experiences within the present moment – what are we feeling, what is our body telling us, what do our senses perceive?

For many, this new way of sensate living means that drive and ambition no longer rule the day. Things that mattered do not seem to matter now. Pushing ourselves seems to hurt more than ever before. What does seem to matter is if what we are choosing has core meaning for us and if we are getting pleasure and fulfillment from our choices.

Through conversations and reading about this shift, many people report extended times of doing nothing; of just needing to rest. One reason for the increasing need for rest is that our bodies are adjusting, too, to this new way of being. Our physicality needs to accommodate to the new capacities inherent in multidimensional living. Specifically, Light is filling our bodies, saturating the places of density that are dissolving in this fluid, new light. These densities include responses like stubbornness or needing to be right or obstinacy or fear or so many other habituated patterns that have clogged our systems.

We also need rest in order to release adaptive beliefs and conditioning that no longer function in this new time. Some of these old ways include being reactionary or defensive. Those approaches no longer work; when they pop up, we can see that they cost false effort and get in the way of being present to current potential.

The Eastern martial arts of moving aside, deflecting, even retreating, come to mind. It is no longer worth the fight. A motivator now is to stay present with the moment. Everything is fleeting, as each new moment comes in with new information, new potential and new opportunities.  Keeping up with this constant new flow while letting go of outdated responses, seems to matter now. We make choice, let go of forcing outcome and notice what takes form in this new life. We notice what has energy for us and what does not.

To choose living this new way takes courage and stamina, and this is the value of supreme self-care. Each individual gets to choose what self-care looks like. There is no one size fits all. There are some guidelines, though. Paying attention to what the body wants, what the emotions are broadcasting, what the Soul wants.  And that all takes listening. The kind of listening that has open space for hearing.

To say that these are challenging times is an understatement of an exponential degree. We have not been here before, there is no guidebook, other than the one we carry within our body and Soul. Multidimensional living means that we now have access to knowing beyond our three dimensional world. We are being informed through invisible channels of communication that involve synchronicity with our natural world and the existing, living energies beyond anything our consciousness has known. It is a big world and we are receptors and co-creators.  If our response is to shut down and block reception, and that is a choice, we are saying no to this new, multidimensional life. On the other hand, when we look around and see that most people are in this land of not knowing with us, we can choose to share our experiences and learn with one another how to navigate this new, multidimensional life.

What is your new story? How are you flowing with multidimensional life now? How are you practicing supreme self-care? Please share in the comments section below!

Muhammad Ali and the New Moon

Muhammad Ali taught me something even in his death.

He lived his truth, without compromise. With his public presence, he brought joy, laughter and love, bright lightening our collective hearts. He was, and is, a treasured man.

The news of his death, and reading the many accounts of his life, and watching him on video, brought tears deep from my heart for this man whom I only knew as a public figure. Curious to learn more about him, I looked up his birth data online and then then drew up his birth chart.  I was shocked to see that he was born about one day after the New Moon.

The phase of the Moon in which one is born imprints an orientation to life that carries through the lifetime. I have worked with the Lunar Cycles for decades and my experience of New Moon people is that they are highly sensitive, intuitive and easily overstimulated because of their capacity to perceive and receive information from the formless world. They are born at the border of formless and form, just as one Lunar Cycle ends and empties and the next cycle begins. They are border crossers, perceptive to sensitive frequencies within the field of flow.

My own experience at the time of each New Moon in our collective sky reflects a sensation of wobbliness, as I find my legs again, after the rest and release of the dark Moon of the cycle that ended. Each New Moon is a tender, delicate and sensitive time.

IMG_1098                                                        Photo by Aureal Williams 

Those born at the time of a New Moon tend to experience life like a newborn baby. New Moon people are impressionable and supersensitive to the energy field around them, visible or not. Before seeing his chart, I anticipated that Muhammad Ali was born at the time of a Full Moon; he was not shy about shining his magnificent light.

Learning that he was born within a day of a New Moon, causes me to appreciate Muhammad Ali more. To live the life that he did with this lunar imprint is astonishing. It is reported that he was born in a time and in a town with active practices of segregation. He had a dad who drank, and he entered a boxing world that did not take, at first, to him or his style.

What Muhammad Ali teaches me in his death is that with every New Moon there is capacity to break the mold and live a new way not yet done before. I always knew that New Moons were beginnings; Muhammad Ali’s life breaks open my understanding of new beginning.

Another astonishing fact of his alignment with Life is that he died in the dark, dark of the Moon, within one day of the end of a lunar cycle. We all have our beginnings and our endings in perfect timing with our own path, no one starting or ending point within the lunar cycle is better than another. For Ali, the alpha and omega of his life started with a New Moon and ended with the Dark Moon.  Thank you, Muhammad Ali, you were truly phenomenal.

 

Authors Note: I bring teachings of the eight Lunar phases as they relate to the Human Growth and Development Cycle to individual consultations, classes and am currently working on an e-book that includes this information. Seeing Muhammad Ali’s Sun/Moon phase angle prompts me to add information of famous people born within each phase.

3 Suggestions for Slowing Down

 

Feeling lost and confused lately? In our current, life-changing dimensional shift, everyone is challenged. Slowing down so that we can hear our own inner guidance is crucial. Self-care is key to slowing down. In slowing down, we change the conditioned, habitual patterning that causes us to stay busy, to force forward, to suppress the wisdom of our inner experience.

The 3rd Dimension was about drive and ambition. The 5th Dimension is mellower than that.  It no longer works to go outside of the present moment or to push for outcomes. In this new, multidimensional experience, the practices of overworking, overdoing, overthinking and staying busy agitate our functioning and get in the way of knowing what to do, when.

Why Slow Down?

Before we get to the 3 Suggestions for Slowing Down, let’s look at the value of slowing down.

We are no longer operating solely on the mental plane. We are being informed through our entire sensate experience; the channels of this receptivity are unique to each of us; some feel things, others see things, and others hear things, some can know by touch.  Some people are open to the signs that come their way as they travel through their day. The change, now, is that we can no longer think our way through something. Our minds do not have all of the information. If we open to the knowing that comes through our sensate experiences, we get a bigger, clearer picture, as well as a sense of timing. For instance, we might know that we do not yet have all the information that is needed to discern an optimal choice; we might be getting the information to wait.

The 5th Dimension is a multidimensional experience, opening us to a greater reality than is possible within the confines of the 3rd and 4th Dimensions. The 5th Dimension is also a portal to even higher dimensional frequencies. In order to access information that comes to us through our body’s connection with this Living Field of Love and Energy (Possibility) and Knowing, we have to be still.  We have to allow for space in the gaps of our doing.

There are rhythms in nature and there are rhythms within our bodies; we are not 24/7 machines like the ATM at the end of your street. We cycle and ebb and flow and we need good, quality sleep, rest and play and relaxation for optimal functioning. These are some of the reasons why it is helpful to slow down.

Another reason to slow down is that in the 5th Dimension, fear is released. Much of our constant activity is based on fear – deadlines, enough money in the bank, external approval from a boss or a team. You have probably heard this many times, fear has no essence. One of our earlier US Presidents even said this, “Nothing to fear but fear itself.” Our 3rd Dimension experiences were so fear- based that it takes a long, long time, to get this as a truth: fear is a control mechanism and can be released.  One way we release fear is by staying in the present moment.  This is a whole other blog topic, maybe for another time.

For now, the focus is on slowing down. If you have a wiry type body, what is known in the Ayurvedic tradition as a Vata body, or if you were born in the first half of the Lunar Cycle, the waxing Moon from New Moon to Full Moon, then you probably do have an innate orientation to high energy levels.  Your natural state might be motion, however, every living organism has ebb and flow rhythms. For those with heavier body types and those born in the waning Moon, from Full to the end of the Lunar Cycle, slowing down for you might mean taking to the bed occasionally.

Slowing down is a vital skill set for everyone in this shift from 3D to 5D.  The slowing down might look different for you than it does for a loved one or a friend, so please allow comparisons and judgement to fly out the window as you explore your own experiences of slowing down.

The 3 Suggestions for Slowing Down

We change through learning and we learn by doing. To rewire prior conditioning of habitual busyness, accept that learning to slow down takes practice, every day and through multiple, experiential ways.

 

  1. For part of your daily routine, whether it is in the morning as you wake up or before you go to bed, or during your commute to or from work, be silent, free of radio, tunes, TV. Try this for 5 to 10 minutes and just be still and contemplative as you go about your activity. Notice your breathing, notice your emotion. If fear or anxiety come up, by all means turn on the sounds, however, also try to slow breath through any surfacing anxiety.  If you do experience peace through this practice of a sound stimulation-free time, gradually add minutes, maybe upping your “in silence” time to 30 minutes or longer.

 

The point of this practice is to increase the comfort level with silence so that, over time, there is more familiarity with listening to intuition and the sensate informing that comes through the living energy field around us.

 

  1. Consider exploring adding an herbal tea to your daily intake. Or, consider the use of aromatherapy to help still your active mind and body. Some common herbs have a soothing effect and support the body in calming down.  You can research these through many sources. If you go to a health food store, you might be able to buy a small amount of an herb you would like to try from their bulk herb section.

Aromatherapy works on the primitive brain and its use can have an immediate calming effect. Explore aromatherapy options, they come in roll on applicators, creams that you can rub into your wrist, or in essential oils. Sniffing something like a rose oil can have an immediate calming effect to a stressed body. Research aromas that call to you.  Please note that many products used in aromatherapy might not be safe for use with children.  Consult references or professionals to learn more.

Allowing the body to calm, through use of an herbal tea or through the sense of smell, can have a direct effect on slowing down the mind. If it calls to you to use herbs or aromatherapy, practice using them regularly, maybe a couple of times each week over a period of some months. Consistent experiential learning can groove a new imprint.

  1. The last suggestion is to snatch moments through the day and practice slowing down.  For instance, between tasks that you do, stop for 3 to 5 minutes, stretch if you can, close your eyes, breath deep, simply stop.  Taking mini breaks like this throughout the day will recalibrate the mindset of keeping going.  A few ideas for integrating a habit of stopping include: after a meeting, go into the bathroom if you have no other place of privacy and take a few minutes to relax the muscles in your body, relax your face by smiling, even though you might not feel like it, close your eyes, massage your hands, rotate your shoulders, your wrists and your ankles. Look out the window for a few uninterrupted minutes and allow your thoughts to float like the clouds.  Acknowledge when your mind and body need a short break and give them what they want. Consciously assist in the recalibration from overdoing into conscious listening to your own inner experience.

Slowing down is a learned experience, built through trial and error, consistent practice and the cumulative joy that living a slowed down life brings. Please let me know, through the comments section below, how you are slowing down now and how that feels to you.

 

Feeling Stuck?

Or, how to keep breathing when things are not moving.

You may have been feeling stuck lately, with the feeling of statis similar to being stuck in a vat of molasses.

A Natural Time: Body as Timer perspective on this delay is that both Mercury and Mars are Retrograde. With Mercury going direct on May 22, movement begins, however, there is a shadow period, as I detailed in a post on Mercury Retrograde Cycles. Mercury moves out of the shadow period this cycle on June 7 and Mars is retrograde until the end of June, 2016.

Briefly, retrograde motion is an apparent backward, or retrograde, movement of planetary orbit, as it appears to us on Earth. Many people feel these delayed energies in direct life experience. With Mercury, the retrograde motion covers technology and communication; with Mars, the retrograde motion covers action and the energy of attraction with what we want in life. Retrograde motion involves delays and we often rework ourselves in the process of waiting for forward motion.

How to Wait?

Life does not come with an instruction manual on how to wait. We all have to learn our own path to waiting peacefully. For me, learning to wait has a circuitous route, with multiple components. Content waiting calls forth a skill set that can take lifetimes to develop. This skill set includes patience, trust, getting out of one’s own way, not taking things personally and active collaboration with a Living Field of energy that surrounds, informs, supports and sustains us.  Taking each of these components, one at a time, reveals that they enfold into one other as a flowing, complex whole.

Patience, to me, means, noticing that something is on delay and not fighting it. To be patient means that I have to find ways within my energy body, free of agitation, anxiety, contorted thought, and wait. Patience means that I accept that there are unseen energies at play, doing their part within a time frame over which I have no control.  Patience means care-giving the desire or longing, the want or the need, the vision or the dream, until both conscious and cosmic components come together.

Whom to Trust?

This kind of patience is built on trust. What is it to trust? Whom or what are we trusting?  When outcome feels static, with an absence of response or a delay in connection or implementation, it helps to trust our Soul, our Life Dream, our Heart’s Desire and all of the invisible helpers supporting us in our endeavors. Who we are and what we dream is bigger than our own Self, it is our Self within the Universe, playing our resonant and accepted piece. We are not the only energies at play and sometimes, we have to wait. Trust in ourselves, our vision, and the cooperative, collaborative, co-creating Universe helps with waiting. Unwavering trust helps.

Getting out of our own Way

Activating trust takes us to the next step, which is getting out of our own way. The vision of what we want to do is actually a cosmic project. We are informed, through intuition or the dream or mentored guidance, we feel resonant with a choice of action and we say yes. When we meet with delay, it is vital to remember that we are a single player on a cosmic stage and many other pieces and parts are at play, even though we might not feel or see them. We can learn to be patient and trust that our cue to resume action will come. Getting tangled up in limiting, rational thought can twist us out of alignment, missing our cue into movement when the delay lifts and momentum starts up again.

We get out of our own way through conscious collaboration with the unseen helpers in support of us and our projects.  These projects can be about our life’s work or finding our mate, or moving household, whatever it is that your Heart desires. What you want is legitimate and yours, as long as there is no harm involved. The invisible helpers can be angels, spiritual and lineage ancestors, saints, masters, teachers, healers, nature beings, elementals, like fairies, leprechauns or any beneficent helpers on the unseen side of our reality based life.

Trust involves acceptance that we are working with unseen energies of the beneficent kind, we are working with our Soul, including parts of our Soul that may not yet be embodied. We are working with forces in the Universe that are vast and ever present to help us in support of our fulfillment and materializing what we want for Life. In trust, they help us with timing that goes beyond what we understand.

Getting out of our own way is based on direct inner knowing that we are not alone. There is an integral connection of Self to what we wish for; there is legitimacy to our longing. When we are met face-to-face with prolonged delay we may meet, head on, conditioned beliefs like scarcity thinking, limitation thinking, feelings of not deserving. Getting out of our own way requires ownership that what we dream, imagine, long for, is ours to have. It requires upping the frequencies to realize, on visceral levels, that we are co-collaborators with a loving universe that wants for us what we want for ourselves. It requires opening to support that our unseen helpers will co-create with us to materialize what burns inside of us to create.

Crystal Clearing to I AM

Getting out of our own way requires not taking things personally.  This piece is huge, because it involves crystal clearing on the continuum of our humanity with our divinity. When we say, state, live I AM, we are claiming our divinity within our humanity. When we take things personally, we are stuck on an unconscious want or need or false belief that limits and confines us. Through personal choice of processes, dreamwork, journaling, silent walks in nature, talking with a friend, consulting with a guide or mentor, we can unveil the hidden need and embrace it rather than continually reject it and have it play out as us getting in our own way.

When we get out of our own way, we affirm that we are part of, we belong, we are supported and what we want will show up in divine design; we are not materializing by ourselves!

Yes, there are times in life, months on end, when it feels like nothing is moving. With the recent Mercury Retrograde and the current Mars retrograde, and from the perspective of Body as Timer, the energy can feel frustratingly stagnant. Please caution against hopelessness.  During these slow-to-no movement times, notice what is your stopping block. Is it not having patience, is it not trusting that you will get what you want, that you will be fulfilled, is it getting in your own way, trying to move forward when Life’s breaks are on, is it taking things personally? Explore your personal road blocks for the hidden treasures that they are. Allow connection in a fuller, more conscious way with the invisible help that is available to us as human beings. Whether you know these helpers as angels, or Saints, or beings of the Devic Realm, by whatever name you call these helpers, open to the partnership, the collaboration, that takes the pain out of waiting.

How do you work with the cosmic delay periods? Please share in the comments section, as we all learn from, and with, one another.

Drum roll: Void of Course Moon Club

Have you ever wanted to harness the ups and downs of your energy cycles as they relate to productivity? The Void of Course Moon Club meets this need. For a nominal fee of $7 US dollars a month, you get Void of Course Moon (VOC) times for one of the following time zones, Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, London, UK. These VOC times are delivered by email with each New Moon of your subscription for lunar the month ahead. A narrative story about working with the Void of Course Moon is included in this monthly email, along with the call in information for a monthly conference call to discuss planning and scheduling with the Void of Course Moon times.

Who Benefits from Joining

Joining this Club benefits those who struggle with time management, those who experience stress from busyness or overwork to the detriment of well-being. Crafters and makers, all manner of self-employed entrepreneurs, can find benefit in this Void of Course information. Anyone who is employed and feels the pressures of producing against all odds may also find benefit in learning about and working with Void of Course Moon times.
The reason this club has benefit for such a wide spectrum of folk is because living in sync with Void of Course Moon times is one of the best techniques for experiencing time as a fluid, inner experience. Working with Void Moon helps open the experience of body as timer and provides vivid contrast for the constrained experience of time as an external controller outside of direct, physical experience.

Why Now?

Since the conditioning of mechanical time (produce at all costs, no matter how the body feels) runs deep within our culture, it can take years to feel and appreciate the value of flowing with the Moon, our natural Timer. In other words, opening the door to this club does not mean that aligning with natural cycles is an easy experience. Joining this club will be a learning experience and can be a fun experience.

Void of course Moon times can best be explained by sacred geometry, which is everywhere in our lives. The next time you are at a meeting or a social gathering, look to see who is directly opposite you. These sitting or standing configurations speak to the energetic alignments among those present. For example, the person 180 degrees apart from you is most likely to be someone who supports you totally or someone with whom an “opposition” exists. You can also look to those sitting at 45 degree angles from you; there is likely to be some friction in these relationships, some dynamic to work through to come to a fuller, more mutually appreciative understanding.

“As above, so below.” These words suggest that what is happening here on Earth is reflected in the skies above. Sacred geometry also shows up in the ever moving planets and stars in the sky. A Void of Course Moon occurs when the Moon is not making any aspect of geometric shape with the planets. The technical definition goes deeper than this, however, for our purposes here, keeping it to basics helps with the very real challenge of changing our relationship with time, moving past centuries of conditioning and opening to the direct, visceral experience of time as a living flow.

The great scientist Buckminster Fuller taught that energy is contained in form. With a Void of Course Moon there is no geometric form to contain the energy. The physical experience can be felt as void, like energy flowing through a sieve, into the void.

This is why there is a business advantage to knowing about these times and using them for planning and scheduling and this Club helps with that. During a Void of Course Moon it can be challenging to stay focused. If we keep pushing forward during a Void Moon time, we might experience losses, uphill battles, and often, the need to apply extra effort or redo things. Working smarter, not harder definitely applies to those who follow Void of Course Moon times.
The Void Moon occurs every two and one half days for varying amounts, from minutes to more than 24 hours. These are optimal times for rest and reflection, for releasing and receiving information from the invisible planes. They are times to allow rest for our bodies, minds and Souls. Rest is an integral component of the productivity cycle and nature is a great teacher.

Bonus Benefit!

Aligning with the void Moon times for planning and scheduling also provides a blueprint for present moment living based on the wisdom of Body as Timer. These skills are key now, as we transition to the New Life/New Time of 5th Dimension living.

It is a tumultuous time as we make this transition. Come join this Club and learn how to align with the flow of the Moon. The inner alignment is already there, as the body feels these rhythms on subtle levels. Tt is now time to bring this subtle body awareness into consciousness and support ourselves more fully with human/nature integration. Come, join the Club!
