Having to Function During a Personal Dark Moon

Aha! moments are sacred, special and bring meaning to our lives. I recently had an Aha! awareness that time is like a second skin we can slip into. This works when it is our rhythm that is slipped into time, rather than time, as an external force, being  superimposed upon us.

Science tells us that time does not exist. Yet, we seem to have universally agreed upon something we call “time”. We show up for work on time, we meet at the movies on time, we pay our taxes on time.

My life and my work are about Natural Time, Body as Timer, living in sync with rhythms of nature as experienced viscerally. A major piece of my work is the Personal Lunar Cycle, a pattern of energy that is based on the phase of the Moon in which we are born. There is a Dark Moon to this Personal Cycle, just as there is a Dark Moon in the Collective Cycle. This Dark Moon represents a naturally occurring low energy time. It is low energy because we are ending a cycle, emptying out in order to begin again with the New Moon.

I choose to live with this cycle each lunar month, and have done so for over twenty years. As I wrote last October, the Dark Moon in both Personal or Collective cycle is a pull to stillness. It is a highly intuitive time and the benefits of stopping to listen are great.

That is not always possible, however, as I wrote in that October blog post. The need to produce happened again in my most recent Personal Dark Moon cycle. I knew to pace myself and to choose as great a version of self-care as possible. I was in bearing witness mode as I showed up, was present to responsibilities and produced.

A Dark Moon period can affect a time span of 2-4 days. I knew what was coming and limited other obligations, focusing only on what was necessary. The 24 hours before my Personal New Moon, I surprised myself with the experience of full functioning. I did not feel compromised in any way, energetically.

The day of my Personal New Moon, though, I did feel the strong pull to gravity, the strong wish to tune everything out other than quiet stillness. I did show up and function adequately that Personal New Moon Day, however, that evening, I crashed. I took to the bed as soon as I could and simply rested. The next day I did have 100% time freedom and rested fully and completely.

The Aha! waking thought that Personal New Moon day was a direct experience of my body slipping into Time and allowing internal and external rhythms to sync. Rhythm is everything in nature. Finding the vibratory rhythm between our internal experience and our external circumstance means that we take our time and sync with the moment, consciously.

My work, feeling the Body as Timer, is a lifelong journey to embody nature’s cycles within the human experience. This work comes from the direct experience that we are sovereign beings. While we might have to function in relation to an external demand, we can do it with an internal sense of personal choice and in alignment with all that is, including the pace of  our body, mind and Soul.

Slow down, you move too fast,” was a phrase from a popular song during my teens. My Mother used to remind me of that, when I was a young girl trying to find my way. My other Mother, our Moon, has always been beaming that to me, to feel Time as my own, and move accordingly.

How about you? How do you feel Time as an inner experience?  Please share in the comments section below.

Hang on to Patience: The Coming Mercury Retrograde Period Feels Like a Doozy!

 

Another Mercury Retrograde period approaches and the one coming feels like a doozy.  As I have written before, Mercury Retrograde occurs three times a year with an approximate three week retrograde period, and a shadow and post retrograde period of varying lengths.  The dates for our next Mercury Retrograde period are:

Shadow period starts March 26, ends April 8

Retrograde period starts April 9, ends May 3

Post Retrograde period stars May 4, ends May 21

In astrology, Mercury governs communication and all things mechanical and technical.  In our current world, that is a lot of territory!

In both direct and reported experiences, these recent glitches suggest that the Mercury retrograde period has already started:

Google shared calendar app that was working, stops working

An institution’s internet connection is sporadic for an entire day, unable to sustain service for longer than a few minutes at a time. Little to no online work can be done.

A doctor’s office confirms an appointment that was not ever made for a condition not experienced.  Wrong patient? Miscommunication of test results? 

These experiences are typical of what happens during Mercury retrograde periods. The snafus cause frustrations with accompanying effects, like increased stress, high blood pressure, sugar cravings, insomnia, anger and depression.

Knowledge is power. When we know that a pattern of celestial play in the sky reflects experiences here on Earth, it helps to take earthly frustrations and stalemates in stride.

If frustrations associated with this Mercury Retrograde period come your way, here are suggestions for coping:

Accept your present moment

Breathe.  Putting right hand in the middle of the chest and left hand two fingers below navel, with pressure as light as a feather, helps calm and center rather quickly.

Once calm, immerse yourself in the experience of No Time.  Concurrent with that is the deep, inner knowing that All is Well.

From this place of direct experience of peace within presence, identify your options and summon your resources.

Release blame, shame, and frustration. Things happen, we are not working alone in this life, we have unseen helpers, always. As human beings, we have only part of the story.  Trust, flow, let go, receive the silver lining when it arrives. 

Quicksilver is liquid Mercury. The silver lining comes when we meet frustrating experiences with grace, patience and humor. Higher vibrational consciousness comes through appreciation of your resourcefulness, willingness to let go of absolutes, and trusting Life.

We might have to wait for it, however, Mercury retrograde does deliver!

 

The Eclipses Are Coming

 

For the many decades that I worked as a professional astrologer, I knew eclipses to be potent portal openings for change and fulfillment. They seem to take us higher. Lunar and Solar eclipses occur at least twice a year and their effects last six months, until the next set of eclipses occur.

In a Lunar Eclipse, Earth passes between Sun and Moon, and Earth’s shadow blocks Moon Light. In a Solar Eclipse, the Moon travels between the Earth and Sun, and the Moon’s shadow blocks the Sun’s Light.

Taking a fresh look at the meaning of eclipses, a recent meditation revealed eclipses as a fusion of Sun, Moon and Earth. In both a Solar and a Lunar eclipse, there is a trinity alignment of exquisitely timed perfection. This exquisite alignment is like an impregnation of Sun/Moon/Earth breathing together.

That this happens at least four times a year and with predictive regularity, and has been happening for thousands of years, is astounding to rational mind. This ritual patterning speaks of great portals of becoming for human beings.

I encourage you to take a  journey with your Self, your Soul, the Sun, Earth and Moon and ask in your own words, what is the meaning of eclipses, for you.  

This week’s Lunar Eclipse occurs on Friday, February 10, at 7:34 PM Eastern time on the axis of Leo Moon and Aquarius Sun. The Solar Eclipse occurs on Sunday, February 26 at 9:59 AM, with a Pisces Sun, Pisces Moon.

The celestial region where these eclipses occur speaks of the union of a stellar human taking center stage in her life, and, from there, finding expressive harmony as a humanitarian being. From this fusion of experience comes the awakening of the direct, visceral Knowing of Oneness.

Something popped up in the collective experience recently and it speaks to a belly-laugh interpretation of the celestial story of the February 2017 eclipses: individuals, in this case, countries, take center stage while coming together as a cohesive, collective whole. Creatives, writers, performers, producers, of late-night talk shows of countries from around the world, have joined together in creating and sharing parodies of their respective countries’ response to the recent United States inauguration speech of “America First.” 

From a Fifth-Dimension perspective, we have long ago crossed the Field into Global Consciousness, so one country being first is of a by-gone era; this positioning is no longer sustainable. We are on this Earth, together, as One. The global late night talk show parodies can be seen on this page.  Over the next six months, as the energies of the February eclipses radiate out, and more countries of our Earth Family activate their flag and present their own parody, it will be interesting to see a world united in resistance, through the strength expression of soft humour.

Resistance united as Global People Coming Together, is one expression of the 2017 Eclipse series.  There will be other collective and personal expressions unfolding within this 2017 eclipse series, as well. Make wishes, listen closely to the Heart, ride the wave of finding your center stage and claiming it, then sharing yourself in the Collective Field. This sharing can be as big or as quiet as your Soul directs, specifically for you. It is of value though, to listen, and ask for assist of your Soul if you feel called to go outside your comfort zone. From the place of claiming your stage, then expressing yourself, comes the direct, visceral, the know it in your blood and bones experience that We are One.

This is one facet of what is on offer in the February 2017 eclipse season. Please share your experiences in the comments section, or email me in the months ahead as eclipse energies of this sacred trinity, Sun/Moon/Earth play out their dance of fusion, opening us to higher frequencies of Love and Oneness.

How Do You Feel When You Have a Synchronous Event?

fractal-1147253_1280

Lately, I have had amazing experiences of synchronicity. It is not so much what happened, rather, how I felt when the synchronous experiences occurred. The visceral experience is one of feeling connected and cared for; alive within an active feedback loop with the Universe.

We go through life conscious of our wishes, wants, desires, longings. We express them through spoken or written word, through feelings and visualizations. We express them through prayer, ritual and action.

Synchronicity involves a connective experience of inner longing with outer manifestation. With synchronicity, a version of our longing shows up in materialized form and in Divine timing. Many readers of this blog know Time as an inner experience. Our ancestors knew and lived this, too. Synchronous experiences, major and minor, are experiences of majical, alive or Divine Timing. This kind of timing reveals the recognition of Self and Universe as connected. Staying receptive to synchronicity is really living in a time-free zone – anything can happen, at anytime, so we stay open to the experience that All is Possible.

It can take a shift in consciousness to receive synchronous events. For the past 2000 years, at least, we have been conditioned to exert effort.  In this New Time of the 5th Dimension, of which increased synchronicity is a part, effort is replaced by presence.

Since  writing the blog post on stopping thinking, I have been noticing when my thoughts go to future.  As soon as I notice this, I bring awareness back to the present. It seems this practice might have something to do with the increase in synchronous events I have been receiving lately.

Synchronicity is also connected with intuition because one has to know, and choose, when and where to place one’s self in order to align with the synchronous event.

Releasing attachment to outcome also helps increase the experience of synchronicity. Acceptance is much easier when we receive what is offered without judging it. “This or something better” we ask, and the Universe delivers.

Aureal Williams

One major change in the shift to 5th Dimension Consciousness is the direct experience that we are not alone.  We are in a collaborative, co-creative experience with the morphic Field of all and within a living, loving, responsive Universe.

We are no longer isolated, cut off lone wolves. We are communal, part of, we belong. This is a major shift, especially, for those of us in the United States, as our country was founded on a frontier experience of survival and independence. We are Global now, and Cosmically interactive. We always were; now we have more awareness of it.

Synchronicity is important. It is part of the new 5th Dimension experience, it is part of living in the present moment, it is part of intuition, wise listening, and it is part of belonging.

Deepak Chopra writes about synchronicity this way:

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly)” Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles

Here’s to synchronicity.  May your life be filled with it! Please share in the comments how it feels when you receive synchronous experiences.

It is Time to Choose

network-1433043_1280

We are at a critical point in the shared story of our lives.  The election has happened, and like Brexit in England, many were shocked by the results of the American process.

What has happened since then is that people are gathering together in committed ways. This is a time, like other pivotal times in history, when empowered people come together, collectively.

One example of this is the Women’s March scheduled for the day after the inauguration. In support of protected rights for all, women are marching in Washington, D C, and other cities throughout the United States, in a grassroots movement of solidarity, advocacy and resistance.

That is one path to action. There are other paths, as well.

On November 8, 2016, a day after the US election, Kara Schallock, a wise woman whose work I respect, admire and follow, posted this on her Face Book page, Ascension: The New:

“Where are you still playing in duality? It takes deeply looking at yourself, your thoughts and actions to see. For instance, if you vote, you are playing in duality. If you judge yourself or another or a group, you are playing in duality. When you play in duality, you keep it strong; you delay Unity Consciousness.

The Truth of you is Love; there is no duality in Love. Yes, we are all in different phases of consciousness and as we become more aware, we see where we play in the much alive game of duality; of separation; and where we refuse to play and choose Love instead. Duality is all around us, so it’s quite easy to get sucked into what “everyone” else is doing. It takes Courage to stand in your Truth…who you say you are. You may be ostracized, ridiculed and pushed away. Yet, Ascension calls for us to stand in our Truth bravely. Ascension certainly isn’t about being a follower or being popular.

If you complain about a system, you add to the duality. Let us be more and let us be strong and courageous and willing to move just a bit higher than where we are right now.”

And then the other day, on my Facebook feed, came this informative article by Danielle Egnew, a psychic whose work is new to me. In the article, Danielle Egnew shares why she is not talking about the President-Elect.

Both women appear to be choosing the path of maintaining a vibrational frequency that resonates above the Third-Dimension story now.

pensive-female-580611_1280

Which is yours to do now? Is yours a role of activism, speaking out, standing together, becoming politically active through spreading the word to others, making calls to elected officials, organizing? Is your role now one of vibrating with a frequency that resonates above the 3D story? Perhaps your role is a combination of the two or something else altogether? Please share in the comments section, below.

In this quantum consciousness shift to the New Field, one world is dying and needs hospice care and the new world is birthing and needs midwifery care. Which is your path now? We are each called on, as human beings central to this quantum shift in consciousness, to stake and claim our own path at this critical time.  Everyone’s  path is unique and there are evolutionary stretches involved with each path.

Those who are activists, helping the old way dissolve, must accommodate family, work and personal time to march and walk with others, to raise their voices in harmonic frequency with hundreds of thousands of other women.

Those who are helping birth the New are focusing on the higher frequency vibrations and must go deep in following an inner truth that might also be a lonely path now.

There is no one right way; every way is valid if it is your truth.

Intuition informs you of your path. Ask, listen, and request support.  Please say yes. NOW is the time to Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning.

What do you do when your only viable recourse is to stop thinking?

winter-20248-winter

The other day I was forced out of thinking. I have written before about being too tired to think, however, on this recent day, external pressures mounted and my only viable recourse was to stop thinking.

Cessation of thought sinks us into present moment. As I prepared to embrace the day, I was aware of no thought and of centering through the Central Channel, that core column within that pulls up from the Earth, through the center of the body, out through the crown and into the infinite sky.  I was aware of being surrounded by a protective energy field, as if I was inside a shield of protection, a Merkabah.

I was acutely aware of being companioned by Present Moment on my right and Intuition on my left, sustained through my core and surrounded by the 10 directions, above, below, all around and within. I was ready, willing and free to breathe the unknown.

meditation-1384758_1280-merkerba-like

We have repeatedly heard the words, “We are Not Alone, We are One, We are Part of, We Belong.” Living this knowing is the New Now and thought restricts direct experience of this harmonic wholeness. Thought takes us out of present moment and into past or future. Past and future do not pulsate with Life, Now does.

In 5th Dimension consciousness, we weave through life as aware, resourced beings with spontaneous access to information. We meet each fresh moment and know what to do by breathing in the Now.

We are well-served to support ourselves in the New Now with practices of quiet, silence, meditation, reflection, journaling and creating. The action of creating builds the experience of confidence in not knowing. How many times have you created something and were surprised and astonished at what came into form? We’ve got this!

We are also well served by proper nutrition, adequate sleep, time in Nature, declining to overwork, and intimate and community relationships with humans and animals whom we love and trust.

We are especially well-served by movement, exercise or walks in nature and, particularly, ancient movement practices that have thousands of years’ experience working with energy flow – practices like qi gong, tai chi, yoga, sacred dance.

We have the chance, now, to replace thinking through and processing every encounter, every day, every obstacle, with a repertoire of self-care options that source us intuitively. These self-care options are called practices, because as we do them every day, we gain depth experience in inner wisdom. Inner wisdom is our main go-to in this time of not-knowing. Inner wisdom is the solid gold of self-love.

These practices of supreme self-care – movement, creativity, nature, nutrition, sleep, intimacy and community – build resilience that radiates through us and opens access to multidimensional consciousness. Life opens to us as we open to Life. This is 5D living, Now.

For me, after letting go of thought, the sensate awareness was Intuition on the left, Core centered, Present Moment on the right.  What is your experience? Please share in the comments section, below.

Non Linear Living, Now!

brush-1317902_1280-colourful-wave-particle

The irony brings on a belly laugh.

One year ago, I wrote a blog post about no longer using reminder lists. I had been in the process of not making lists for three years  by the time I wrote that post. Now, one year later, a stubborn mindset wants to revisit the issue. Habits die hard and the mind continues to think it knows best.

In this season of shift, multiple streams call for attention. The imperative to choose is forceful and the mind gets scared that it cannot keep up, or choose well. Within this heart pounding experience, I considered returning to making lists.

Ah, the pain of it.  Feeling frantic and not resourceful, the mind tries to revert to old ways. Whether to make a list or not might read trivial and inconsequential; however, my direct experience of this choice point is that it is crucial.

Making a list harms me because it takes me out of the wave particle flow of life and back into linear confinement of self within time and space. It is challenging to be in the new 5D, multidimensional experience. We have been living in the 3rd Dimensional Consciousness for thousands of years and the old ways of how we got by are deeply ingrained in thoughts, experiences and programmed responses.

This new way is open and there are no teachers or guides or safety nets other than our own deep, true inner knowing.  3D consciousness might not know what is going on, however, our multidimensional consciousness, informed through sensate experiences within a living, informing Field, does know and offers guidance and direction out of fear and into Light.

I came very close to writing a list before my consciousness floated in with awareness that making a list is a linear way and, right now, that does not represent optimal functioning in this new multidimensional consciousness.

universe-1566161_1280-wave-particle-blue

In this new way, all is possible, in any moment. Making a list inhibits all possibility, because we limit our focus to the way our minds outlined. I am talking about all lists, from grocery lists to work to-do lists to life goal lists.

Yes, we still identify and name what we want, however, we do not limit it. “This or something better” is a helpful phrase to add on to anything we have identified that we want.  That phrase keeps it open to all possibility and honours the mechanics of us working with a knowing, loving Living Field of co-creation.

What is the worst that can happen if you forget to buy something from the grocery store because you did not use a list?  Maybe another trip back to the store at another time and who knows the connection that can happen when you make that second trip?

People with symptoms of memory loss do need to employ lists. We use all that we can to help ourselves.  Yet, others, who rely on lists, out of habit in contrast to need, might be surprised by the freedom that comes from not using lists.

To live free of lists requires trust in one’s self. It requires trust in a living Universe, or Spirit, or Field, whatever the name. It requires trust in one’s self within this living Field.

And that is the difference, in this new time we are aware that we are connected, vitally to our own Knowing, to our informing Cosmos, and to the morphic Field of living intelligence and all that is animate – humans, animals, plants, flowers, trees, crystals, rocks, stones, stars, rainbows, clouds, waters, fire, earth, winds.

All that has life has intelligence and communicates through this pulsing living Field in which we anchor ourselves.  The upright, steadfast anchoring of past has become a swirling, open, fluid, colourful anchoring filled with surprise, support and fulfillment.

Living a linear life will not get us the fulfillment our hearts and souls want. The past is gone. We are free-floating within all possibility now and making a list restricts the full capacity of listening, feeling, choosing within each fresh moment.

What needs to happen for you to consider releasing reliance on making lists? Please share in the comments below.

Blessed Be, in a Joyous 2017

The Full Moon’s Secret

 processing-1737812_1280-saluting-full-moon

I have worked with the Full Moon in many ways, including dancing in wild celebration with a group, on a beach with a campfire; in meditative circles where we plundered in to feel the one root beneath all duality; in women’s talking and drumming circles, in a plaintive, lamenting wail for Sacred Union; immersed in cozy blankets, a steaming cup of herbal tea and books of poetry, Rumi, David Whyte, Mary Oliver.

My current, favorite way to work with our beloved, Sacred, Beaming Full Moon Light is to recognize its primal role as turning point between the in/out rhythm of life.  There is an in and out phase to everything, from our birth to our death, from our night to our day, from each in breath to each out breath.  These cycles, and so many more, have a cyclic span determined by the breadth of their circumference; some cycles are wider, and therefore, take longer, than other circles. The rhythmic pattern of a cycle, though, one half activity and the other half rest, is always the same.

The more complex our world gets; the more the basics help stabilize. That is why I go back, eons, perhaps, to remember, acknowledge and feel this simple in/out rhythm that our Moon models for us each month.  From New to Full Moon we are in active mode.  From Full to the end of the cycle, the Balsamic Moon, we are in rest mode.

lunar-eclipse-1192664_1280

Perhaps you are thinking, “Ridiculous, who could live like this?” Please consider that this is how our planet lives.  This is how our planet lives in relation to its place in the cosmos. This is how our Moon has modeled timing for us since the beginning of human life on earth. This is how our bodies live, whether we bring consciousness to this rhythm or not.

Yes, we are in a modern world that lives by 24/7 access to everything that we want.  However, our Moon mirrors this secret – the repeating pattern of activity and rest inherent in all the cycles, and cycles are the nature of life.

It is my operating premise that when we align with this core rhythm, as reflected by the fluid flow of Moon Light, we help ourselves root within the sustaining rhythm of life. To me, this is the ultimate in self-care, to feel and align our rhythmic body with the rhythmic body of cosmos, in sync and on time.

We have come a long way from consciously aligning with this core rhythm.  Some of us, perhaps you, and me, do live this alignment because not doing so throws us off kilter, spinning with no reliable tether.  The Moon and her fluid flow of Light does anchor us in the cyclic pattern of being, releasing and becoming.

What this means in practical terms is that you start recognizing, within your body, the surging build energy from New to Full Moon, and the dissipating, dissolving energy in the last half of the Moon’s cycle. We gather and build in the first half and reflect, process, disseminate and integrate in the last half.

Once we readmit this basic rhythm into sensate awareness, our body, our Divine Intelligence, our Intuition, our activated link with a living, loving Cosmic Field, guides us to next steps.

If you are already living this alignment, please let me know. If living like this sparks a compelling invitation within you, please let me know. It is time to call a Moon and Her Secrets circle together.

Intuition and Mercury Retrograde

staircase-600468_1280-spiral

It is that time again, when Mercury turns retrograde.  This is a natural cycle, however, not one we feel as a visceral experience, like we do with the Moon’s cycles. Mercury works with a mental, in contrast to physical, dynamic.

The natural element Mercury is reflective, conductive, liquid metal and has roots in alchemy. The planet Mercury has similar attributes. It is known as the Trickster, and governs communication, technology and things mechanical.

Mercury goes retrograde three times a year. While the actual retrograde motion time is three weeks, a full Mercury retrograde period, with pre-and post tracks, usually lasts eight weeks. During these times, there can be delays, miscommunications, confusions as well as opportunities to complete things that were started long ago. This is also a time when we might find ourselves connecting with people with whom we have lost touch.

For those in business, such as real estate, or sales of any kind, it is helpful to know the Mercury retrograde pattern. This is because there can be delays and snafus and it is helpful not to take seeming obstacles personally.  It is so much better when we have an understanding that things like delays might happen, due to a cosmic cycle.  This information is helpful for anyone trying to communicate a business deal or personal communication of importance.

Mercury retrograde has very bad press in the mainstream media.  It is a natural cycle, one that occurs frequently, and it has value for us. One value is that it slows us down.  Sometimes the delays gifted by Mercury retrograde take a lot of time and attention. I remember one technical computer glitch that took me a month to resolve.  Another example comes from a woman I knew who was waiting to hear about a work contract. She could not understand the delay. I shared Mercury Retrograde information with her and she reported back that as soon as that period of Mercury retrograde passed, she was awarded the contract.

flowers-1089349_1280-grey-embellish

Here are the dates: Mercury went into its shadow period on December 1, 2016 and is in the shadow stage until the planet goes retrograde on December 19, 2016.  Mercury stays retrograde for three weeks, until January 8, 2017. A post-retrograde period is in effect from January 9th until January 27, 2017 when the planet crosses its station. This means that Mercury is crossing the astrological degree where it turned retrograde December 19, 2016.

The shadow period, pre-the exact Mercury retrograde pivot, relates to the degree when Mercury turns direct, on January 8, 2017; this is like a precursor to the road traveled before the actual retrograde motion and once again while Mercury is retrograde. If this is heady, please just consider that Mercury retrograde offers a time to review actions and maybe, repeat steps.

Each Mercury retrograde period is unique unto itself because it travels a different section of the zodiac each Mercury retrograde period.  If someone has connection through her natal chart with the degrees of a specific Mercury retrograde period, the effects can be more intense.

The standard counsel during retrograde Mercury times are to complete unfinished projects, be open to old friends popping up, and perhaps, avoid making major purchases like buying a house or a car or a new computer.

If a Mercury retrograde cycle becomes intense for you, please relax into the experience and ask for any teaching that is being offered to surface from unconscious to consciousness.

Intuition can be a match for the quicksilver nature of Mercury. With intuition, you are operating from the field of seen and unseen energies, beyond mind.

More frequent check-ins with inner asking could possibly help circumvent Mercury retrograde challenges. Checking into the energy field within and around you, sensing all levels and dimensions before acting, or reacting, can only help. A daily prayer of intention for effortless ease might also help.

One part of my business is personalized support for living an intuitive life. If you would like assist on how to identify, work with and trust intuition, contact me.

Pivotal Mid Season Dates, November 5 – 7, 2016

galaxies-597905_1280-spiral-dance

It seems like yesterday that I wrote about shifting into Fall Season 2016. Now, we are at the midseason point, moving from Fall toward Winter. Mid season shifts are of value from a natural time, rhythmic living perspective. One of the value-added gifts is on the subtle energy plane. Our bodies are at a midseason point, turning from Fall, which is dry to cold, toward Winter, which is cold to wet. Those who work with Eastern medicine, like Acupuncture, might recognize this language.

Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine developed this health theory, more simply known as body humours. Notice the breakdown of the word hum   ours!  Rudolph Steiner related the humours to temperament.  Our healthcare systems have deep roots within this knowledge.

Let’s consider how these humoural shifts affect us in 2016 when climate change produces 80 degree temperatures in November in mid-latitude regions of the Central United States. What are your thoughts on this?

Personally, I do not know. What is most true for me in this questioning is that we are still turning.  We are still in midseason shift, based on the movement of our home body within our home galaxy.

A value in noting seasonal shifts is that we are prepared. This awareness loosens us from stuck points, from resisting the unseen, often unfelt fluid motion of our lives.  Pagan traditions honor midseason with conscious awareness of shifting change and rituals of celebration, gratitude and the giving and requesting of blessings.

As we co-create our future within each present moment, collective recognition of the midseason shift is helpful. It lifts delusion of stasis and opens us to the experience of flow, and the direct experience of the release and renewal mechanisms of change.

earth-11015_1280-1

There is another pivotal moment during midseason turning that occurs one day before the exact midseason turning point. This other cyclic turning involves the midpoint between our Galactic Center and our Super Galactic Center in direct contact with the point where our Earth connects with our Sun.

The Galactic Astrologer, Philip Sedgwick, points out that this pivotal moment for us is a powerful time for making intentions. Our human hearts have direct access to the alignment of our Sun, the Galactic Center and the Super Galactic Center.  The world is ours. Take it. Observe that we are shifting in this midseason and that there is a direct connection in this sacred time for linking our deepest, purest heart’s desire with a listening cosmos.

The most potent days for meditating, requesting, visioning, intentioning, for consciously being with this potent mid season cosmic alignment are the 5th through the 7th of November 2016.

If you find this post helpful, please share with a friend!

Blessed be,
