The Facebook Stock Discussion

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!

 

 

 

Personal Dark Moon, May 2012 Experience

I have been living with the Personal Lunar Cycle since I “recovered” it through a kinesthetic body experience in 1993. After tracking it for myself for two years, I wrote about it and then taught it. Prior to my work with the Personal Lunar Cycle, I had been aligning with the rhythmic flow of the Collective Lunar Cycle since the late 1960s. I have come to know these natural rhythms as inner energy cycles. Syncing with natural cycles is one  prime way to deepen work with intuition, as one is timed and aligned with the living world.  Coherency and synchronicity are natural outcomes of this work.

The Dark Moon phase, the last of the eight lunar phases, occurs three days before each New Moon. Energetically, the Dark Moon phase represents a call to stop and dissolve before the renewal that occurs with each New Moon. The Dark Moon phase is like the interphase in the cell cycle, that phase of stop right before the next cell division.  The Dark Moon Phase is also like the night cycle in the day/night rhythm or the dark stillness of winter within the seasonal cycle.

I can share with you that there is almost always a struggle to rest with the Dark Moon Phase.  Either  there is internal resistance to rest, or an external struggle to rest that  comes from obstacles or judgements of others around us. In our society and culture  rest is not an authentic activity.  As hard as it is to listen and acquiesce when our bodies and nature call us to rest, the consequences of not doing so affect mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. We can not push upstream in a downstream time and not pay for it with body, mind and soul.

So readers can understand what living with the Personal Lunar Cycle involves, I share my experience of the past Dark Moon phase in my own Personal Lunar Cycle.  The gravitational pull to stop and rest during this Dark Moon time started on Friday and it was profound.  Rest was all that I could do.  I said yes and viscerally understood that this is what I needed. After 19 years of living with this innate cycle I schedule around them. I had one task to do that day, and that was to pay a bill. It took all that I had to meet that task with completion.  Other than that, I rested and read mysteries.

 It was a nice day outside, sunny and in the 70s.  When my sister called for our daily check-in, I could hear in her voice that she thought that I should get up and do something.  Most of the time, my sister  honors my choices in life and has acknowledged her own pull to gravity during her personal dark moons. However, on this day, she seemed to want something different for me than lying under the covers.

I  have my own inner resistance to laying low, yet on this day, here it was, my beloved sister, tonally urging me to get moving. I am telling you readers, it is hard to listen to one’s own inner wisdom and give your heart, soul and physicality what it needs. After hearing my sister’s tone of voice, there was a moment, more than a moment actually, when I questioned my own choice. The pull to gravity was so strong and profound, though, that all I could do was surrender deep into quiet stillness. There is an exquisiteness to that surrender, a profound yes within all of my cells, to let go into doing nothing.

Saturday morning, still in the Dark Moon phase, I ran an errand and had the energy to do it.  Saturday afternoon and evening I participated in an online/phone workshop and took to the bed for that participation.  I fell asleep during some of the processes, which I often do regardless of Moon timing.  In combination of my receptivity to slow stillness in my Personal Dark Moon phase and the information coming to me through the wisdom of the workshop, I was aware of a profound opening in my second chakra.  This sensation was visceral, like this portal of energy opening access for me. There was a magnetic pull of my second chakra opening a viable link to Earth Mother. It was a profound experience of nourishment, recognition and enrichment. The energy of the second chakra that opened for me relates to the second chakra’s function of individual choice, what is it that I want.  This whole area of my body/consciousness was being fed with animate life.  My second chakra was alive, integrated and functioning. Along with this opening came a deeper relaxation into life.

Sunday, was a divinely rainy day here and as the morning flowed, I continued with slow rhythming and did things I was moved to do, like reading for pleasure, watching some TV. The New Moon for me in the Personal Cycle occurred around 12:40 PM. A New Moon has to find its legs, so around 5:30 PM I was activated, cleaning, doing laundry, making dinner with a tender aliveness. Deeper breathing, fuller consciousness, greater gratitude  and conscious awareness of a second chakra that had the experience of belonging.  

And today, Monday, I write to share about this recent experience of of descent and renewal with the Moon. I am off into my new lunar cycle, a new beginning, restored refreshed and ready.

If you sense a repeating pattern of needing to stop within your months, you might be tuning into your own personal lunar cycle rhythm. It is an exquisite patterning, one full of creative potential for fulfillment and well-being and wholeness. If you would like a companion guide to help you maximize this cycle, let me know!

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?

 

More to come in the posts ahead.
