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.

Felt Experience

Channelers writing about life in 5D suggest that our bodies need time to acclimate to the light frequency upgrades available now. Personal experience with this shift suggests that the urge to rest goes beyond the Natural Time frameworks of Void of Course Moon times and Dark Moon times in the Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles.

When one of these strong pulls to rest occurs outside of a Natural Time framework, I am bewildered, confused and judgmental. Is it procrastination? Is it fear? Is it an influx of new frequencies that causes my body to want to lay low?

I have no trouble resting during the Void of Course Moon times and the Dark Moon times, yet when my physicality resists upright action outside of those time frames, I have been stuck in the blame and shame mode. Clearly, this does not work because I have worked long enough with Natural Time and holistic health to know, beyond doubt, that the Body knows.

What am I left with, then, when by body wants rest and from a Natural Cycles perspective there is nothing standing in the way of taking action? After much prayer and introspective inquiry, I am left with a new level of trust that fuses trust in self (Soul) with trust in the Field of energy surrounding me. A trust in myself within a Living Universe, beyond my rational comprehension.

What does this mean? What does this look like?  How does it feel? 

The Body is medium now. Our sensate experience and inner knowing is navigator. In 3D, we relied on mind to get us through things; we strategized, planned and mentally forged through obstacles and frustrations. We ignored our bodies as we regarded them as mechanical machines, skipping lunches, aborting sleep, working through pain.

Willfulness does not get us far in the New Field of 5D. There is a new leader on our team and it is the Body. Learning to follow its lead requires that we listen to it, learn to work with it and trust its living wisdom within the larger Field of life that encompasses multidimensional accessibility now.

5D living calls for choice discerned through felt experience. What else is there to guide our way? There is no external authority that knows our way better than we do. There is no doctor, no financial advisor, no church person, no significant other or best friend, that knows our way better than we, ourselves, do. We still consult with others, however, after gaining pertinent information, the final choice is ours. We are left to make choices from the core of our own being, deep within our inner knowing.

When our body wants to rest and our mind races with “Yes, but…we have to produce, create, get things done,” one response is to calm down, deep breathe, come to present moment awareness and ask “What is my choice in this now?”

Generations before us used the term “One foot in front of the other,” when they were bewildered and did not know what to do next. In these times, with holographic 5D possibilities, the invitation is for a more centered inquiry, one that comes from within our core and activates sensate experience as we feel our way to current choice.

This new way takes practice, trust and gentleness with Self. It also helps to have community. The invitation is here to share experiences of your shift to 5D in the comments section.

Here is to releasing resistance to rest….for our greater good!

Why Tolerance for Being Alone Is Necessary for Good Living

Aligning with natural cycles as a direct, physical experience requires living in ebb and flow, much as our Moon does. There are times of great activity and energy, such as at Full Moon times, and there are quieter times of repose, rest and stillness, such as at Dark of the Moon and Void of Course Moon times.

Until recently, I was not consciously aware that there is a generational divide, a large group of young people who might feel challenged acquiescing to the slower, low energy times. The term “low energy times” is not a pejorative. Resting and stillness are part of the productivity and creativity cycle and low energy times are cycle phases that naturally occur in life, nature and the human body.

An essay that I encountered recently spells out, in historical detail, the evolution of our comfort levels with resting, stillness, time alone, time in nature and doing nothing. While the essay is a literary read, it offers informative perspective on our current wildly wired time.

As a natural time consultant, I share experiences aligning with natural cycles, including the challenges and benefits. Through deep listening, shared reflection and intuitive coaching, and decades of lived experience, I assist others who wish to align with natural cycles.

My adaptation to living in alignment with natural cycles comes from my own unique constitution, and that is different for everyone. I am someone who loves silence, time in nature, and doing nothing. I was born before wireless communication was universal, as it is now. I remember Saturday afternoons, growing up, when I felt very bored. Daydreaming was my go to activity.

People born in more recent times still get bored, however, their antidote to boredom includes frequent texting to friends and folks who might not be friends. In addition, there are a gazillion television or youtube channels to distract, or gaming. As someone who invites the experience of doing nothing, I am up against mind-boggling competition!

There is a slight turn in the wind, though. Do a google search for “doctors prescribing time in nature” and a wide array of articles pop up. Spending time alone in nature or engaged in solitary activities like taking a nap, or daydreaming while sipping a cup of tea are indulgences from an earlier time, however, they are actually timeless examples of good medicine.

Being alone is easy for some and challenging for others, no matter the generation into which they are born. True connection feeds the soul, promotes health and a sense of well-being. Being comfortable being alone, with times of silence and stillness, ground the relationship with one’s self. Healthy relationship with one’s self opens the door to all other good relationships.

Please share your joys and challenges being alone in the comments section. I would love to hear from you!

The Power of a Fresh Start

Up from down; feet on the ground, a vibrant new beginning coursing through me. This was the direct experience I had with this recent New Moon.

I feel the energy of the ebb and flow of natural cycles within my body as an inescapable experience. My personal dark moon phase comes about a week before the collective dark moon phase. With this pattern, there is a slow down, then reenergizing followed soon by another downward pull and then a breakthrough new beginning.

While this pattern of cycling occurs each lunar month, some months the pull to rest is stronger than others. The extent to which I am pulled to stillness seems to be determined by the proximity of the New Moon’s sign and degree to a prominent placement within my natal chart. With no direct connection, there is still a pull to rest. When there is a direct connection the pull to rest during the dark collective moon is potent to the power of 10!

In this most recent cycle, there was a compelling call to rest; the New Moon was conjunct the descendant angle of my birth chart. This is an area of connection with others, and I seemed to be pulled into deep stillness during this past dark Moon. Yes, it has been -3 degrees Fahrenheit where I live, always a time for indoor comfort, however, with this dark Moon, my experience was rest, rest and more rest in the three days leading up to the New Moon.

Then, the morning following the New Moon, about 12 hours after it became exact, I bounced out of bed with a strong, visceral experience of New Beginning, energy palpable for a fresh start.

I love these experiences of acknowledging my body’s rhythms in connection with nature’s rhythms. While it is hard to resist the conditioned habit to keep going, I have learned over the years that I am better off aligning with this gravitational pull. When I don’t align with it, I place undue stress on my physicality. I have learned to acquiesce to rest when the pull to rest is strong. This is how I understand self-care.

New beginnings come in many ways; for instance, each time we do laundry, or change our sheets, or sweep the floor or take out the trash, we are refreshing our space to begin again. Aligning our restarts in coordination with planetary cycles helps us renew ourselves and our focus. It is a forgiving experience, to accept a restart.

While it may seem that I am doing nothing during low energy times, my body, psyche, and soul, are releasing and realigning for the begin again moment. This is the cycle of life and death and while actual death does not occur at the end of every day, or lunar month or seasonal shift, an energetic one does. When we allow that release to happen through honouring the pull to be still, quiet, reflective, even, perhaps, non-active, we allow the full cycle of beginning, middle and ending to operate unrestricted within our direct experience.

In addition to the gravitational pull of cyclic living, something else is calling us to slow down, be still and rest. Other people who write about the shift in frequency to the 5th dimension address the body’s need to accommodate the new frequencies and new light in this new time. It seems that we have to allow the time and space for our bodies to adjust to these higher vibrational shifts and that can come through a need to lie down and rest.

These calls to rest are not predictable like a lunar cycle rhythm is, however, they do seem to be occurring now. It feels crucial to rest when we are called to rest. Labels like slacker and lazy and procrastinator can be examined in light of direct physical experience. What does your body, your physicality, soul and Spirit need? If it is rest and times of doing nothing, consider trusting the request and your body and the sacred timing of materializing what you want to create and the full process of doing so. Consider that doing nothing may actually be part of the productivity cycle. Nature lives like this.

Work and family responsibilities may impinge on your ability to make a full stop. In those times, you can get creative in how you minimize commitments and maximize rest. Self talk has value, for instance, telling your body that you recognize it needs sleep, or rest or to do nothing, acknowledge that you hear that need and that you will meet this need as soon as you can. Consider, too,  asking for help or offering help when someone near you needs to be still.

This blog is about changing relationship with time; it is about recognizing the body as timer. When the mind tempts to overrun the wisdom of the body, give it a rest!

For readers new to this blog, the Personal Lunar Cycle is determined by the phase of the Moon in which one is born, and the Collective Lunar Cycle starts with each New Moon and continues through the eight lunar phases. Finding one’s rhythm between the Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles gives insight on how to work with ebbs and flows of energy levels in conscious awareness and respect. Individual consultations are available for those interested in working with these natural cycles.

2015 closes and 2016 beckons. Traditionally, people take a year-end review and plot out their plans for the months ahead. Life in the 5th Dimension, this new realm that we are in, invites another way. With 5D living, we are informed in present time; past and future thinking locks us out of Now, with all of its informing possibilities.

Yes, of course, we have to be accountable for our actions and if there is something that brings distress, it is helpful to review and reconsider. Heavy pondering, though, can weigh down being in the present, and we can miss the liveliness of Now. As I wrote in last week’s blog post, a simple stating to Self and Universe, or Spirit, or Field, of what we want and then allowing to receive takes efforting out of the equation. Present moment living can open us to self-worth and cosmic partnership. What we want is valid and we are in a co-creative collaboration with Light, Life and Love.

For a clearer picture of this process, I share a personal story about giving up making lists.

For years, a spiritual teacher of mine suggested letting go of making lists. Two years after hearing this, a moment opened and I said yes, let me try it. This was about three years ago now, and I remember the flow: it was a play day for me and I decided to let go of plotting and planning, the list making of what I hoped to accomplish that day. I knew on the feeling level that I wanted to go to the movies. Without access to even the list of movies or start times, I drove to the cinema. I parked the car and walked up to the front of the cinema with the list of movies showing and their start times. Standing there, I encountered a woman who said that she had a coupon for 2 for one movie price and she asked me if I was interested in seeing one of the movies that started soon. I do not remember the name of the movie that we saw, and I have not ever seen that woman again, however, it was a pleasant, kind experience and we both enjoyed the show and chatted about it for a few minutes after the movie.

Then, I felt the draw to go shopping. A shirt that I had been wanting was on the sale rack for $10 and a small salmon coloured suitcase with lots of zippered pockets, an item that I had been watching for months, was on sale for 1/3 of it’s original price. I still wear that shirt and the luggage is my favorite travel piece. I stayed in the flow of that day and was open to all of these experiences that supported my heart’s desire.

Since that majical day, I have given up making lists, even for the grocery store. I consider making lists a detriment because it takes me out of the present moment. There is nothing more precious nor more potent than the present moment. I do not consider myself expert in present moment living. I have a personal aversion to waste and I know that not living in the present moment is wasteful: of time, energy and resources, so I aspire to live in present moment and being list-free helps me.

Majic happens in this process. If I forget something from the store because I have no list, there is a new journey, a new experience, a new opening in that process; either I make do or when I do go back to get the missed item, some other experience or contact pops up.

There is a deepened experience of trust with this process, trust in myself and trust in the Universal Energies with whom I coexist, co-create and collaborate.

For anyone with a significant numbers of years lived, it is apparent that the years fly by. We start out in January and before we know it, the year has gone by. Present moment is all we have. Bringing attention to it enriches our lives.

Personal Dark Moon, December 8 2012


Orion's Umbra

As I have shared many times and in many places before, in 1993, through a kinesthetic body experience, I “recovered” (in contrast to discovered!) a pattern of energy that is based on the phase of the Moon in which one is born.  Since that time I have lived with this cycle, planned life around its optimization, teach the technique and use it with intuitive counseling clients.  It has always been a hard sell, as modern life has been far removed from living with the rhythms of the Moon. When I first started blogging, I wrote posts about my experiences with this cycle.  It has been awhile since I have shared in that way.  A recent upsurge in client requests for this work and my own experience in this particular dark moon personal cycle prompt me to write this post.

Everyone has their own phase of the Moon in which they are born, one half of the two half cycle (New Moon to Full, Full to Dark Moon), one phase out of the 28 phase cycle, one phase out of the four quarter phase cycle, one phase out of the Moon’s eight phase cycle. Your sun/moon phase angle is unique to you. My sun/moon phase angle is when the sun and the moon are at 290 degrees apart each lunation, toward the end of the lunar cycle. Those of us born in the last half of the cycle tend to need a fuller stop in our dark Moon phases than those born in the first half of the cycle.

My new moon in the personal cycle occurs at 2:46 AM December 8, 2012, less than 12 hours of my writing this post. The New Moon, in both the personal and collective cycle is like the reset button and the three days before the New Moon, especially the 24 hours before, is known as the Dark of the Moon.

Ordinarily during this dark moon time , I take to the bed, reading mysteries or simply resting.  I have done some of that this dark moon. I also find myself upright, writing and it feels good. Leading in to this dark moon phase of the cycle I have had two days of down time. I have had appointments, however, easy and with no external pressure.  So, I come into this phase more relaxed than I usually am in my personal dark moon time.  The one word that comes to describe this particular cycle is sweet.  There is a lot of ease surrounding me right now, perhaps that ease has always been there and I am simply noticing it more.

Manifestation is another energy that is showing up in this dark moon phase.  Some posts earlier, I wrote about wanting a colouring book that had images of toruses in it. I did found a colouring book and gifted myself with it as a holiday gift. It arrived and I am working with it, however, it takes a lot of time to colour a page in this book and that is not how I want to spend time right now.  Seeing the image of torus in this book sparked the memory of slinkys.  Yesterday, I went out in search of a slinky and found one.  Quick manifestation has been happening a lot lately and I love it.  Maybe direct manifestation experiences are taking some of the edge of life off, allowing for more trust and ease.  I am also making more connections with people through direct contact and social media.  Meaningful connections, seeing and being seen, always helps as a life support.

I have the slinky on my desk, it is a small one, quite transportable, and as I play with it and bring it into its own full circle, there is tangible, visual reminder of what my teacher, Michele Mayama suggests: that the shape of our chakras are shifting into the torodial shape. The movie Thrive sources energy in the universe as related to the torus shape.

With the dark Moon in the personal lunar cycle, there seems to be a homecoming of sorts; of information and experiences settling in as one cycle completes and the next cycle is about to begin. As the torus shape shows us, there is continual unfolding, circle upon circle.  In a torus, the edges are softer, rounder, folding over into one’s self for a distinct experience of completion  continued. That is what the moon’s cycles do, too.

The Pull to Rest, Continued….

Agustin Rafael Reyes via Compfight

During the most recent Dark Moon (three full 24 hour periods before each New Moon) I started to write a post about resting in the Dark of the Moon and the post went missing! The post was there and then it was not there.  I accepted this happening as a cosmic intervention, a loud and clear reminder that it was time to rest, not write.

When I was living in Ashland, Oregan at the turn of the century, I heard Barry Brailsford speak to a group of people. He is an indigenous wisdom man, carrying the traditions of many ancient cultures.  That particular evening, Barry talked about not starting a writing project, or any project (Facebook take note!), near the end of the Lunar Cycle.  Barry said that it just made sense, and we only need to look at the sky, or feel within, to know this. As he said this, a friend in the audience looked at me and we both nodded, as she recognized that this was information I consistently shared in my work with Natural Time.

I know the tradition of syncing human activities with the Moon’s phases is something indigenous peoples do and have done forever and while I carry this tradition myself, deep within me, it was good to hear Barry say this in contemporary time. I have often felt like Cassandra sharing this information.

For me, the information came first through a study of astrology and then through direct experience of my body’s rhythms, the momentum to move forward, or to be still, in relation to the ebbs and flows of our Moon.

What I don’t get is how rare this seems to be to people, to coordinate how they feel and want to move or not want to move in relation to the Moon’s phase in the sky above.  To me, it is like a giant cosmic permission slip to follow one’s own rhythms in accordance with nature. It takes a lot to do that, I know, and you can read through earlier posts, and future posts, to learn about my struggles with this allowing.

In this most recent Dark Moon, I started to write about resting and the cosmos invited me to walk my talk. I accepted that invite and did rest as much as I could. For instance, not writing a voluntary blog post. There was something, though, that I had to do during this Dark Moon time and that was to show up for a part-time employment gig. Prior to the last few months, I had  the divine, supreme luxury of calling my own schedule. Now, I have a part-time gig where there is not as much leeway in my schedule as there was before. For the first time in about ten years, I had to show up for a job during the Dark Moon phase on Monday and Tuesday of this past week.

Monday went well, I didn’t have to do much, and  I rested Monday evening.  I did not sleep well during the night, as is often the circumstance right before a New Moon. Energy is stirring to begin anew.  The New Moon occurred on Tuesday morning at 11:02 AM EDT and I found it very difficult to work that day.  I was tired, out of sorts, and about 2 in the afternoon wondered to myself if I would make it through the rest of the day.

I did make it through the day and came right home, no stopping.  I crashed into rest that evening and being a self-indulgent sort, I rested the entire next day.  I knew from the feeling within my body that I had to come back to center, to reset to zero for the start of the new lunar cycle.  It was also the start of a new solar cycle, so the rest was deep and replenishing. I had the day to myself, a luxury, I know, and I read a mystery, stayed reclining most of the day, moved slowly, peacefully.

I woke this morning with a resurgence, a renewed energy field, fresh for the start of this new lunar cycle and this new season, Summer!, and with vitalized energy for my own work. New ideas, new enthusiasm, fresh perspective.

Not everyone can stop what they are doing and rest as the Moon floats from the end of one cycle to the beginning of the next. I know this and I will now, occasionally, fall into this category, too. However, if you struggle with depression, or irritability or frustration with your circumstances, I encourage you to consider realigning choices regarding energy exertion and the Moon’s movement. There are two cycles to consider, the Collective Lunar Cycle and your Personal Lunar Cycle. For simplicity’s sake, consider starting the alignment with the Collective Lunar Cycle. After you feel a resonance with that cycle, consider moving on to alignment with the Personal Lunar Cycle.

Things to consider for alignment with the Collective Cycle are to prepare for the naturally occurring low energy time during the Dark Moons, again, those are three days before each New Moon. You can find the date and time of the New Moons are on most calendars. During the Dark Moon times, consider having groceries on hand so you don’t have to stop at the supermarket on the way home from work. Pull out something from the freezer in the morning, so it is ready to go for dinner, instead of having to exert energy cooking. You might be too tired to enjoy what you cook during that Dark Moon time!  Have arrangements with family members for quiet time those evenings and limit external commitments as you can.  Most of all though, notice the longing in your body for rest, and allow time and space for it.  Planning ahead helps, whether it is with meals or housecleaning or activities for children or yourself. Queue up that book on your tablet, have something ready to go that relaxes.

Indigenous peoples have followed the lunar rhythms since the beginning of time. These cultures are not prominent any longer, however their wisdom still works. The cultures that have been prominent recently have attempted to use dominion over Nature to stay in power.  Their grip is loosening. The Shift  (paradigm/age/new dimension/new field) that we are in presents an opening to again connect live with Nature and reach for synchronicity, alignment and comfort from one ever-changing constant in life, our Moon.

Personal Dark Moon, June 2012 Experience

Dew Drops Ali via Compfight

It is June 13, 2012 and I had my New Moon in the Personal Lunar cycle during the bewitching 3 am hour this morning. The Dark Moon days, three days before each New Moon, were very different this cycle than they have been in previous cycles. I think the big difference between this past cycle and previous cycles is that in the May 2012 cycle I had the awareness that I needed more Chi in my life.  This insight brought forth the plan to cook at least one warm fresh vegetable a day.  I did this with relative success for the past 28 days and do feel like I picked up my Chi considerably.  The fact that I am eating less in general also feels related to eating hearty vegetables every day.  With more Chi running through my body, the Dark Moon phase of this past Personal Lunar Cycle felt less like a deep pull into darkness and more like  a conscious witnessing of a cycle turning. I have tracked this cycle faithfully for 19 years and I know that there are variations in each cycle, however, it does feel that with more Chi running in my body, I did not have to go down so deeply to rest this past dark moon. This feels like a gift.

In the recent dark moon phase, just preceding my Personal New Moon, I still took to the bed. I schedule the 24 hours before my  Personal New Moon as a sacred time, a time for rest and relaxation and I treasure this time.  Despite 19 years of faithfully following this cycle, my mind still comes in during a dark moon day shouting, “Shouldn’t you….blah, blah, blah,”  I  let myself rest. This recent Dark Moon phase was mostly a conscious listening time and I allowed myself the space and stillness to do that.

What I heard during the stillness was to Be Happy.  It is hard, sometimes, in modern life, to look beyond the fear and scare, and choose the other.  One of the opportunities that I am working on is clearing my third eye chakra to see possibilities beyond what I know or even imagine, because imagination can be limited.  I want unlimited life experience.  I want to open to what is possible even though it has not been in my realm of possibility.  I expand openness and interaction with the unlimited possibility and potential.

What I heard in this recent Dark Moon time of my Personal Lunar Cycle is that that my heart wants to be happy. Despite all conditioning prior to this moment, I will give my heart what it wants and explore with unbridled curiosity the discovery of happiness.  I will notice the positive, the up versus down.   If I hadn’t stopped and laid on my bed with my eyes wide open, looking out on the summer green and letting that visceral into my heart and my body, I do not know if I would have heard this whisper into my right ear, from my inner self to my conscious self. I did hear it though, and voice witness to that hearing.

May’s Personal Dark Moon lead me to eat better.  Which I am doing! June’s Personal Lunar Cycle leads me to embrace happiness more consciously.  I will let you know next month how this cycle goes.

Alignment with natural cycles allows us to connect consciously with the stop and start points of the cyclical nature of life.  It allows us to regroup.  I have written about the Personal Lunar Cycle before, and I have lived with it since 1993 and have been teaching it in my group and individual intuitive practice since 1995.  I find the Personal Lunar Cycle to be a valuable predictor of energy levels as it is based on the phase of the Moon in which you are born.  This is a cycle that repeats each month of one’s life and if you would like to connect and work with your own Personal Lunar Cycle, let me know!

 

 

 

 

The Facebook Stock Discussion

Big Moon Ricardo Motti via Compfight

 

It astounds me that with access to all that money, media and popularity, the Facebook stock team did not seem to have access to primal sense.  Is it only the indigenous peoples who know?  Is it only nonindigenous people, like me and hundreds of others like me, who try to pay attention and follow nature, that know?

The “knowing” that I am talking about is that if one wants a project to succeed, don’t start it in the deep dark of the Moon, especially when the next New Moon involves an eclipse, as this New Moon did.  The Facebook people launched their public offering of stock on Friday morning, May 18 somewhere around 9:30 AM Eastern Daylight time and we, I am talking about all of us, had a New Moon with in two days of this launch.  The New Moon eclipse occurred on Sunday, May 20 at 7:48 PM Eastern Daylight time.

When the Facebook people officially launched their stock in public offering, the Moon was around 333 degrees of its 360 degree cycle, it was in its 26th of its 28 day cycle and it was in its 8th of 8 phase cycle.  That timing speaks of ending, not beginning.  The energy is just not there to sustain new life.  I am sorry if this is hard news for anyone to take in; the ancient peoples on our land, on all parts of our land, worked with natural cycles, the flow of the seasons and the phases of the Moon.

It is disheartening that this simple, primal, information, something we see reflected in the sky each and every month as a reminder for us, is so ignored in our modern society.  We will not ever know how the Facebook stock might have fared if the launch was delayed until Tuesday or Wednesday, once the New Moon had a chance to find its legs and the energy starts anew.

I have no stock in Facebook and am not planning on purchasing any, so I really don’t have a horse in this race.  Except that me, and hundreds, if not thousands of people like me, share information about these natural cycles and people do not seem to sense the connection between their energy, the life and viability of their projects or relationships and that big, beautiful, oceanic Moon up there.  There is a connection and I invite you to track it.  It is easy to do, most calenders list the New and Full Moons on their pages.  Note how you feel and how what you start in dark Moon days, three days before the New Moon, turns out.  Let me know how it goes!

 

 

 

Welcome

Living the Intuitive Life

 

 

What I reach for most  is to live intuitively — to make decisions from the  feeling inside that knows instantly the best choice for me, in contrast to the heavy mental shifting through of choices. The mental decision loop seems endless, where the intuitive knowing is immediate. Of course, one needs to build skill in order to identify, and then trust, intuition.

 

I have experience in this.  Close friends describe me as highly intuitive — and this blog, perhaps, is a means where I share how intuition is my modus operandi.

 

To live intuitively implies freedom to know and choose, with confidence.  Intuition is the on button of self in alignment with Universe.  To feel truth within, in small choices as well as big ones, and keep moving, not stuck in past review or fretting future.

 

The expressed intention of this blog is to share my process of living the intuitive life.  The main tool that I have for this is alignment with natural cycles.  My most practiced affinity is with the lunar cycles, both the collective, from New to Full Moon and the end of the lunar cycle and the Personal Lunar Cycle, which is a pattern of energy based on the phase of the Moon in which you are born.

 

In both of these cycles there is a dark of the moon phase that occurs three days before the New Moon.  Energy is naturally low during dark moon times and the work is on the inside.  These highly receptive times are perfect for rest and reflection. For forty years,  I have tracked my alignment with the lunar cycle.  Indigenous peoples and some religions have tracked the energetic patterning of the lunar cycle for a lot longer.  In my tracking, I find that alignment with the lunar cycle, resting when its time to be still  and moving when it is time to move, lessens frustration, irritability and maybe even depression.  There is a price to pay for pushing upstream in a downstream time. Every cell in our being goes through a rest phase and so do the cosmic cycles.  Why not our full consciousness, the whole of our being? Maybe that is what intuition is, full(er) consciousness of the moment?
