Finding Peace through Presence

Whether the hurricane winds, tornados or raging fires are in our immediate vicinity or not, every human heart feels their effects. We all know what devastation looks like, in our lives, and in the lives of others.

These are treacherous times, and Earth Mother, through these weather events and natural disasters, calls us to attention.

How do we find peace with what is happening in our world?  Danielle Egnew, a medium who offers global predictions, offers one perspective. In a recent blog post, she writes that she is changing how she works because of the addictive nature of prediction.  People hear what is forecast and they stop there. The stopping point is most often fear.

We are so much more than fear. As Danielle Egnew writes, we are at the point of choice between being stuck in habituated egoic patterns or living from “Our actual operating system – one of endless miracles, peace, and abundance.”

I wrote about my direct experience of co-creating reality in last week’s blog post. Yes, we are doing this. We are living from the New Earth, with co-creative actuality.

I wish I could remember where I read this next sharing, so that I can source it accurately, because it is a wise perspective of resonance.  Some public figure in the New Earth writings wrote recently that one reason why these cataclysmic events are happening is for us to become heart-directed in our connections with one another. These extraordinary events pull us together, as a human family.

It is time to step up and live from Heart. We have moved through “healing” and into presence. With presence, we take responsibility for our actions as a sovereign being. Danielle Egnew takes this responsibility, as she writes in her blog post, and with consideration of the consequences her choices have on the human family. She presents as brave, and true.

Another reading that feels pertinent right now is from Matt Licata’s exquisite book, The Path is Everywhere. On page 81, he writes about delving into the  multidimensional, sensate experience of fear in order to reveal its directive message to us.

When we do this, we can move through the incapacitation of fear, and into the experience of Living Love as the generator of our new operating system. Miracles happen, abundance is a given and the heart is alive. This is real. This is us. This is choice.

Our actual operating system – one of endless miracles, peace, and abundance.”                                                                                                                                                                       Danielle Egnew

Please share in the comments how you move through fear and stand in unconditioned presence now. What a glory that experience is!

How to Claim 5D Alchemy

5D delivers.  Once we move past the surprise of getting what we requested in full and complete ways, extraneous thought evaporates. There is nothing to do, no big agenda to follow. Effort goes out of receiving and even out of following-up.

Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.                                                                                                                                                    Ken Wilbur

The Story

Unlike many people, I have not ever wanted to own a home. With nomadic blood, I move a lot, in both short and long-distance moves. I do feel that I have settled in place now, coming full circle to where I began. Buying a home, though, is not on my wish list.

Renting has become an option for many people and the market has changed. Prices have gone up and supply has gone down. I wanted to move this past Spring.

My wish list is precise, and long. I require no smoking, no external lights shining into interior rooms, no carpet, pet friendly, quiet, surrounding beauty and the right price.  Nothing matched my list this Spring, so I  decided to settle in place despite a super long commute with traffic that I allow to aggravate me.

Then, it happened.  As Ken Wilber says “Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.  (From CWI No Boundary, page 433.)

My niece, a realtor, told me about a house for rent that meets my wish list.  And here, I have it, a place to call home. This new home allows me to shift toward fuller living. This new residence allows for greater social engagement and cultural enrichment because the commute is cut in half. I will be free from bombastic, artificial light invading inner space, noise pollution that yanks up my nervous system and a lack of green beauty that does nothing for the heart.

When the offer came, there was no losing center. I took the offer as a direct response to my request, and I took the receiving of it in stride. The plotting and planning of packing, moving, changing addresses seem like an ordinary day’s work; neither an ordeal, nor a cause for overenthusiastic anticipation.  The experience is simply something that is happening that is part of the mix of living in the field of alchemical magic, where wishes are granted and dreams are fulfilled.

Like many people, my past is rich with the joys of getting dream jobs or finding beautiful places to live or taking life-changing trips. There was always a roller coaster associated with these experiences; an up and a down.

Now, in 5D, it seems we take good fortune in stride.  There is nothing to lose center over. The pull of over exuberance or deflation has evaporated. We are in Yes Living now.

It is quite freeing to ask for something and receive it in full, on Spirit or the Universe’s timeline.  When we receive what we requested, the tendency is to keep asking for the next things our hearts desire. Love, and Life, and our own Soul, respond.

Ask – Presence with each changing Moment – Receive – Acknowledge — Ask

As we acclimate to the 5th and Higher Dimensions, we operate at a new cloud level, where the vista is wider, more flowing and connected. We do not have to concern ourselves with the tedium we were used to dealing with in 3D. We live with greater stride, confidence, and surety.

Please share in the comments a recent experience of yours in having a request met, full and complete.

 

 

 

 

There are Two Outcomes, We Either Rise in Frequency, or We Stay Stuck

The closing line of my daily prayer is, “Everything I need is here,” and my living anthem is, “All is Well.” Saying these words and living them are two different things, and I am at the place of Great Divide. Now is the time for me to live the alignment. Maybe your experience is that it is that time for you, too.

Our Quantum Dimensional Shift is the biggest, boldest frontier humanity has ever faced. What got us here, rational thought, consciousness of duality, no longer works.

How to climb out of habituated limitations and into the Living, Fluid Light? Many of us have been preparing for this shift for eons.  Other peoples’ work helps, like Tosha Silver’s Outrageous Openness, or Eckhart Tolle’s masterful help with Presence in the Moment, along with multiple others. However, it feels that the time is now for internal accountability rather than external influence.  The leap is Now. Mission Critical. No time to wait.

One place where I get mentally hung up is the old paradigm thinking of what about them? If I have this, whatever it is, what about them, how will “they” get it? One thing that I did learn from 15 years of Tibetan Buddhist practice is that there are no comparisons, yet I still attempt for all  things to be equal. Our Universe is varied, abundant,  and there is enough for all. I can no longer allow myself to get hung up at this lower frequency vibration that comes from limitation.

Another signifier of this time is the Sovereignty of our Beingness. We are our own Boss now, no deferring to others, and no one knows our path better than we do. We must take what is ours to take with the Grace of our own Divinity. To choose this requires sustained living at higher frequencies.

There are two outcomes, we either rise in frequency, or we stay stuck.

I choose to rise in frequency. Deep-seated patterns of worry and fear are juxtapositioned with All is Possible and living, breathing that this is so.  I can no longer stay stuck in what was, despite feeling fragile as I live this New Way.

It helps to re member the elusive essence of Soul. When we are Soul Directed, as so many of us are, we are not limited to 3D consciousness or even 5D consciousness.  Our Souls know, and they do their best to inform us if we only listen and allow.  Our minds do not know better than our Souls.

Feeding the Soul is critical now, as this is what informs us while mind no longer leads the way. What feeds your Soul? Please share in the comments section. My soul is fed through plenty of down time, doing nothing, hanging out in the silent spaciousness. Many other choices also feed my Soul, however, this one is primary.

We were made for this Great Shift. As spiritual beings in human form, we came in multidimensional. The Dimensions are opening and inviting us Home. Staying with the familiar, the patterned, we might miss the re Union.  This is what is at stake Now.

 

 

 

 

 

Opening to Receive: 5 Tips to Get to Yes

When someone compliments you,  do you accept, wide open, with no questioning? Or, do pre-conditioned responses of resistance come into play? Are you even keel with giving and receiving, or are you always  giving?  Life within a  responsive Universe requires that we live in dynamic equilibrium with both  giving and receiving.

In last week’s post, I wrote how the split between body and mind is lessening and use of intuition is increasing. For these great changes to happen though, we must be open to receive. Issues of false pride and subscribing to hierarchy are no longer functional. In hierarchy’s place is awareness of our own supreme sovereignty. That message, delivered Ages ago, the Kingdom of Heaven is Within” reflects present reality.

As I wrote last week, we are moving toward the direct experience of Oneness. Going through life blocking the reality that we are part of, that we belong, results in tremendous waste and keeps us from receiving what is ours to receive.

If receiving remains a challenge, here are five suggestions to consider for opening to the wild, raw, living current of Life that says Yes.

  1. Consider that being closed to receiving is an adaptive response. Notice how a baby responds to a face reflecting unconditional love: there is joy, delight, openness, receptivity! Practice receiving at that infant pleasure level next time someone praises you.

 

  1. Allowing unconditional love involves trust. If you feel there is no one whom you can trust, go to nature. Beam in the spectacle of night sky, or a vibrant-with-life tree, or a serenading bird or the breathtaking colours of sunrise and sunset. Allow yourself to receive natural beauty as mirror reflection of you.

 

  1. Say Yes when your Soul nudges you to say Yes. You will know when a No is appropriate, however, consciously stretch to Yes when No feels false or habitual. This Amazon page lists books related to saying yes.

 

  1. Using a mirror, look yourself in the eye and applaud yourself!  This practice, from Spring Forest Qigong,  opens the heart meridian. Do try this and note how it feels!

 

  1. Consider that you may be adept at opening to receive and that the challenge is Opening to Be Received.

 

During eons of life in 3rd Dimension, many of us had to hide. Intuitives, healers, wise women and men, we could not openly show who we are.  We can be who we are now and opening to be received might represent a new chapter in living the truth that we are part of and do belong. Your gifts, talents, wisdom are a crucial part of our collective unfolding into 5D.

If opening to be received is part of your challenge, start small and stay consistent with sharing who you are and what is yours to give. Trust that the opening to fulfillment is yours and receive it. Pay attention to how your sensate body guides and directs you. Open to receive that inner wisdom, and you will find your way to opening to be received.

Blessing wishes for all giving and receiving

 

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.

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

3 Techniques for Sustaining High Frequencies

adventure-1807524_1280-helping-hand

Collective shock last week and a mighty Super Moon this week.  Like me, you may have had a personal experience of losing center in direct relationship to the collective shock and the potent, shake-up energies of this luminous Full Moon.

The experience I had prompted me to use stability techniques for sustaining core self within the higher frequency vibrations of 5th Dimension even though I had fallen off center and back into 3D fear and panic.

In losing center, we fall into chaos, disorganization, maybe confusion, hurt, wanting to fight or flee or become numb. If we are lucky, soon after the initial shock, we recalibrate. Once we have had an experience of higher frequency living, the lower vibrational responses cannot satisfy us. Instinctively, we want to go back to Light living.

Life does have these stops and starts, these setbacks that spill over with personal teachings that help affirm our choices to live Light, Love and the fullest expression of our new selves.

In working through my personal upset this week, I called on three techniques to help maintain the higher frequencies when reactive responses triggered replays of fear, dread, disdain, wanting to run, fight or avoid.  Here are the techniques. I find them to be infallible recovery resources.

  1. Put your right hand at the level of your heart, middle chest and your left hand two fingers below your naval.

You can do this standing up, lying down, sitting

This technique takes you into your 2nd and 4th Chakras which are inward, calming chakras

This technique calms your autonomic nervous system into neutral, where you, first, calm down and then see, feel, sense options

  1. Breathe out for longer than you breathe in and do this for a few breaths

I wish I could source where I read about this technique; it is very effective for calming down, relaxing into presence and can also induce sleep

  1. Connect live with someone who knows and loves you. Phone calls are okay, in person is great. Make connection and share your experience. We are social beings; we are not alone in this life and to feel or do so is an illusion that hurts the whole of us.  Activate your resources. If you truly feel that you have no one to connect live with, write a letter to someone who has loved you and perhaps is now deceased. Heart connection goes beyond linear time/space.

background-1585357_1280

While, hopefully, we have come back to core, from the collective shock and the Full Moon emotional impact, nothing in life is static. There will be other times when we are jarred and fall from center.  Self-care is mandatory for maintenance, sustainability and recovery.  We have seen Light now, in our shift to 5D, we know and feel what our new lives can be. Taking personal care is key. Please do take these techniques for a test drive. Based on your direct experience with them, put them in your self-care tool box to use in times of minor and major life storms.

The higher vibration of 5th Dimension harmony is a new home now. While we are still jolted back to the duality, density and assumed helplessness of the 3rd Dimension, now and then, it is becoming more painful to be there, even for short stays. The more we open to our Light Body experience, that gives us a vast and comprehensive view of possibilities and resources, the easier it becomes to claim this home as our new reality. These techniques offer presence and connection, hallmarks of 5D living.

What are your techniques for coming back to center, for sustaining higher vibrational frequencies, in times of great upset? Please share in the comments below.

If Asking, What Now…

light-710471_1280-tourus

 

Dear Readers,

A backdrop to current world circumstances is the shift from the 3rd Dimension to the 5th Dimension. In brief, historical perspective, the BBC site, The Evolution of Man,  defines previous quantum leap evolutions from Cave Men to The First Europeans, to the Ice People, to Humans. Throughout these evolutions, there have been corresponding shifts in consciousness.  Under the section, The First Europeans, One Million Years ago, we find  But this early human was undoubtedly developing a complex mind. Once this boundary had been reached, there was no turning back.

It is the same today; up close and personal, we can barely see that our consciousness is evolving by quantum leaps in the timeline of human history. In our case, the frequency of Being is increasing in Light, meaning there is less density. More clarity, less rigidity; more expansion, less contraction are two other ways of framing this shift. Our quantum leap in consciousness, like all the leaps before, does not seem easy.

Our consciousness shift is from duality-based consciousness, right/wrong, good/bad, to an inclusive consciousness of wholeness and integration. Is it any wonder our world looks like it does today, on the surface, as we are amid this shift?

If we are to make this shift in consciousness, one thing that needs release is duality consciousness. A duality-based world view is not sustainable in the 5th Dimension. Duality cannot survive the Light there.

In response to the recent collective shock, many of us are looking within to understand. One place to look for understanding and for reframing a response is to look at embedded duality consciousness. The programmed, conditioned response of duality filtering has been with us for ages.

And now, in human evolution, we are being spiraled out of duality consciousness and into the higher frequency vibrations of 5D where duality thinking cannot survive.

clematis-1528764_1280

If you are aware of this shift and want to work it, tools for transcending duality include meditation, creativity, laughter, the adrenaline rush of exercise,  being in nature, engaging with animals, being in community, and my favorite, Natural Time.

Natural Time alignment unlocks  ties that keep us bond in conditioned experience. Flowing with natural time, we sense best times to meditate, to create, best times to rest and be still, best times to wait, best times to act. To remind, natural time is feeling Time as a flowing inner experience, rather than the experience of Time as a static, controlling, external force outside of us.

Living cyclically, as directed by inner experience, we can know the zero point — in the day, the month and the year — when one cycle ends and the next begins. This zero point transcends duality and is a place of infinite potential. It is a reset button, to assess, reevaluate, choose again. This zero point is a direct connect with Oneness. Words do not do justice to this awakening experience.

It is personal choice, always, to opt for the higher frequencies, more Light, Living Love, or to stay in the dross of duality, with its comparisons, competitions, judgments, fears, sense of victim hood, and impotent anger.

There has not ever been a time like now in our human history.  It is up to each of us to choose our resonance. Take care, be kind, claim community and consider exploring the cyclic flow of naturally occurring low energy down times and their gift of deep, true, informing connection with Self.

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.

Blessed be,

Sacred Timing

play-994676_1280-dark-moon

When our Moon empties out at the end of a cycle, there is no light in the night sky. Correspondingly, during dark Moon times, our own light turns inward, in sync with a gravitational pull to slow down and be still.  This inward pull to stillness, to being with our deep selves, occurs twice each month. Once with the Collective Lunar Cycle, and once with the Personal Lunar cycle.

Both cycles, the personal and the collective, have the same rhythmic pattern; it is the start days that vary. The Collective Lunar Cycle starts with the New Moon, and the Personal Lunar Cycle starts with the phase of the Moon in which you are born. The Dark Moon, this inward pull to quiet receptivity, occurs three days before the New Moon in both the personal and collective cycles.

A Dark Moon in the collective cycle is occurring as I post this blog article.  The New Moon occurs Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 1:39 PM Eastern Daylight Time. This means that the Collective Dark Moon starts Thursday, October 27, 2016, in the afternoon in US Eastern time zone.  The inward pull toward quiet refection begins on Thursday and continues through the weekend, until the New Moon.  Within a day after the New Moon, we start to feel the upward energy surge again.

Not everyone feels this timing. It can start with a nudge, a pull toward stillness, reflection, rest, quiet. If you sense any of this, please open the invitation. The more we align with natural, cyclic timing, the more the experience becomes familiar to us. Like all new skill sets, when we pay attention, we open receptor pathways of the original blueprints that our bodies are timers.

The Personal Lunar Cycle is the other cycle with this rhythmic pattern of slowing down, release and renewal. I just had my Personal Dark Moon; It started late Friday, October 21, 2016, continued through Saturday, all day Sunday and ended with my Personal New Moon, Monday morning, October 24, 2016 in the 8 o’clock hour.

I anticipate the personal dark Moon phase as a sacred holiday. This is a time when I honour the whole of my life in synchronized flow with our living Universe. For us, on Earth, flow means the Moon is involved.

I have been aligning with this sacred timing since 1993.  For 95% of this time, I have planned and scheduled around this pivotal timing. I have minimized commitments, laid low, and observed sensate release and regeneration typical of cyclic endings and beginnings.

Seven years ago, I took a nursing job on a per diem basis, even though I worked fulltime. I choose to forego benefits like paid time off so that  I could control my schedule and not have to work on low energy Personal Dark Moon days.  There is predictive value in knowing this rhythm, and I used it for self-care and well-being, and to optimize the potent receptivity (intuition, inner knowing, coming to center) inherent during Dark Moon times.

This past Personal Lunar Cycle, though, I was under deadline for a high-pressured, freelance writing assignment and I had to work through the low energy time. Eliminating distractions, cancelling social plans and staying focused on the writing task, I did muster the stamina to complete the task. It took all that I had, energetically and emotionally.

The carrot at the end of the stick was that I knew the Moon was void of course all day on Monday, enhancing my ability to rest post project. My schedule was clear and I gave myself a do-nothing day. It was calm, sweet, comfortable, quiet, relaxing and restorative.

On Tuesday, I was aware of still needing a little slower down time and I eased into the day with that awareness, of being kind with myself.

I have been through enough of these Personal Lunar Cycle turnings to know that if I do not stop and be still during this precious, sacred time, a depression, an irritability, an out of sorts experience shows up.  It is the beast in nature; if we do not feed the beast what it needs, in this case rest and quiet, it roars in ugliness.

I did not get the stillness that I needed during my Personal Dark Moon, however, I knew enough to not continue forward before taking deep rest. I was a little off schedule, however, I still gave myself the self-care and stillness that I needed.

Our bodies need these rest and reset times daily, twice within the Lunar Cycle, one Personal, one Collective, and yearly, right before our birthday, with our Solar Return.

I want to shout from the rooftop, I want to play the trumpet and bang the cymbals, I want to sing an operatic High C to let people know about these natural cycle turnings, these pivot times of stop and restart. Coming to zero point with nature’s timing is an exquisite, sacred experience.

Much of what I read these days is that answers to our challenges are found through self-love. Listening to, and heeding, the needs of our precious human bodies, is to me, ultimate expression of self-love. In Sacred Heart living, listening for what the body needs is high priority.

For those new to this sacred timing, I am in the process of developing online training for recognizing and honouring these sacred cycle alignments. I anticipate these products to be ready on or before Spring, 2017.

Those who have taken my personal lunar cycle classes know this timing and I welcome your sharing on the value of this timing in your life. Please add your comments in the comments section below!
