Allowing Our Moon’s Magnetics to Pull You toward Stillness

In the early 1980s, I remember feeling bewildered that I had energy during one-half of each month and wanted to do nothing the other half of each month. This confusion was before I had consciousness around the permeable flow of the Moon’s rhythms in nature and within me.

Now that I understand the shifting rhythms, I work with them consciously. I have just had my Personal Dark Moon with its luscious pull to be quiet and still. It is a majical time that filters, warms and nurtures. Dark Moons rest my body, Soul, and Spirit.

Everyone has his or her unique patterning between the Personal and the Collective Lunar Cycles.  My Personal New Moon occurs about one week before the Collective New Moon. With this patterning, I have three days of magnetic pull to stillness and then an energetic uplift with my Personal New Moon. A few days after this, I go down and in again with the Collective Dark Moon, and then a fuller, energetic resurgence with the Collective New Moon. During the last ten days of the Collective Lunar Cycle, for me,  the needle on the energy spectrum trends toward low.

Flowing with this pattern allows my body rest and more rest, with the reflective peace that comes with stillness. These are abundantly rich times, and I resurface in both the Personal and Collective New Moons with new insights, and fresh starts.

The reflection that broke through the surface during this recent Personal Dark Moon relates to the heavy tension that gets stored in my body when I focus on the unexplainable chaos in our world now. In the United States, we have someone in power appearing to break all rules, yet keeps going. We have police shooting people to death, without charges brought against them and we have a former, revered comedian on trial for sexual assault, with legions of women in the background echoing similar assault, and the trial results in a hung jury.  In the world, we have audacious events of mass deaths by unfathomable acts of terror. Who can explain this topsy-turvy world?

For those of us working with the collective consciousness shift to higher dimensions, we understand that these bizarre outer circumstances represent the dismantling of the old order.  We get that. Living through it is another matter, as hardly anyone anticipated the dismantling would be so disgraceful, shocking, offensive, extreme.

The impact on our collective psyche is serious. People who are not aware of the quantum dimensional shift are having a tough time. People who are aware of this quantum shift are also having a tough time. Stress levels tip the balance scales with somber effect.

I have felt this stress as it shows up in clenched muscle tension that stifles life flow. This physical contraction hurts, and as a sovereign being, I must shift this. We all have anchors that bring us to center. One of my main anchors involves synchronizing physical energy levels with Moon flow.

Because I stopped, rested, and listened during my most recent Personal Dark Moon, I heard a plan that come through my inner caretaker.  During the Collective Dark Moon this week, I am taking a news cleanse.  I am not reading news online. I already do not watch the news on TV, and this week, I am giving up the hours I spend every day reading news online.  Our New Moon occurs Friday evening, June 23, 10:32 PM, EDT.  I will discern then whether I want to return to spending precious, potentially creative, moments reading news online.

Before the November election, I stopped listening to NPR news and have not returned to that practice. My system cannot take it.  My system has been on overload with all the online news I consumed,  and in this collective Dark Moon, I release that practice, too. I will have more time for creativity, more time for connecting with others, more time for tending to my inner life, as is optimal during a dark Moon phase.

It is rough out there. We must keep to kindness and supreme self-care. Do you feel the magnetic pull to stillness when it knocks on your psyche? Are you allowing it to help you stop, rest and listen to your inner wisdom? Please share in the comments section. If you would like assistance determining the pattern between your Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles, let me know.

 

Reporting on a Win!


This week I have happy news to share:  a narrative report on my 22 years’ experience working with Natural Time, Body as Timer, has been published in The Journal of Research of the American Federation of Astrologers. Volume 17, 2017.

If you have been to one of my classes, or if we have talked in person, you know that this path I am on has seemed, at times, a lonely one. People are not so interested in changing their relationship with time from an external one to an internal one. In addition, if you know anything about me, my strengths are not in sales.

It has been a long, slow journey with this work that is core to who I am and my part in the world. To have this esteemed organization, The American Federation of Astrologers, which was incorporated in 1938, recognize and acknowledge the importance of aligning with cycles of the Sun and Moon as internal experiences, feels great and cause for celebration.

In honour of this publication, I offer a special sale on a Personal Lunar Cycle report. Normally $125.00, from now until the New Moon, April 26, 2017 the Personal Lunar Cycle report is available for $100.00.  With this report, you receive information on the phase of the Moon in which you are born, how that phase relates to your life story, and your next 13 Personal New Moons. Also included, is information on how to calculate your Personal New Moons in the future. As a special bonus with this offer, you have 3-month access to a monthly group conference call on how to work with this natural cycle.

If you are interested in this offer, contact me and I will reply with a birthdata form for you to complete and a link for purchase through PayPal.

If you are interested in purchasing the anthology, you can find it here.  The title of my piece is Qualitative Research Narrative: Report on the Personal Lunar Cycle, page 153.

Whatever your level of support, or interest, in this work, I am grateful!

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.

The Birthday as a Structural, Organizing Principle

 

Whether we celebrate with festive parties or quiet reverie, the birthday offers a structural organizing principle within the play of life. The birthday is a sacred time, a renewal of life on earth in direct connection with our Sun, the ultimate umbilical cord.

A Solar Return is when the sun in the current sky is at the same place as the Sun at the time of birth. As we age, the Solar Return can occur prior to the actual calendar date of the birthday, even a day or two before the actual birth date. This Solar Return is an inner energy experience that can be acknowledged and honoured.

The ebb and flow of Solar energy goes like this: about one month before the birthday, personal energy level starts to wane. About three days before the birthday, personal energy can be quite low and with a strong internal focus.  We are coming to the end of a cycle, just as personal energy levels dip at the end of the Lunar Cycle, during the Dark of the Moon phase just before the New Moon.

There is nothing wrong with this pull to stillness. In fact, this slowdown reflects resonate alignment with cosmic flow.  Once the Solar Return happens, energy starts to build again and a surge of renewal is palpable.  

Life is cyclical.  There are long cycles and there are shorter cycles. Our bodies feel them all. When we tune into the personal timing of our Solar Cycle, we can make the most of this innate, structural, organizing principle and tap its benefits: a renewal of life on Earth in sync with Sun, Self and Earth.  A Oneness of cosmic alignment.

As some readers know, my work is about Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles.   There is a Collective starting point and a Personal starting point within both the Solar and Lunar Cycles. Having a sense of this inner/outer timing structure, and the fact that the Personal and Collective cycles represent cyclical overlays, helps understand one’s personal rhythm within the frame of the collective rhythm.

Here is an example:  My birthday occurs mid-February.  I do not feel the full start to my new year until after my birthday.  Yes, I recognize the Winter Solstice as the start of the year, I give nodding acknowledgement to January 1st each year and I also align with the resonance of the Chinese New Year which starts with the February New Moon.  I feel these natural cycles, however, the new year does not fully start for me until after my mid-February birthday.

What this suggests is that my resonance is aligned more with a Personal Solar Cycle than with the Collective Solar Cycle. Neither personal nor collective alignment is better; it is helpful, though, to know which is your primary resonance, personal or collective.

My most recent Solar renewal led me to thoughts about those born in seasons other than Winter. With a February birthday, the fullness of my new start time is in the winter; midwinter to be sure, however, near the Winter Solstice and the February New Moon, which for centuries has guided the Chinese to the start of their New Year.

For those born in Spring, Summer or Fall, I wonder how the Solar organizing principle plays out.  I am talking about the very internal structure of dissolution and renewal as expressed by cosmic flow. In the comments section below, please share your experience of the personal and collective starts to the year.

The reference here is the overlay of personal within collective and collective within personal. Bringing consciousness to these innate rhythms helps frame the experience of one’s unique rhythm with Life.  Such a reflection can provide grounding and understanding through a visceral sense of a structural, organizing principle for one’s life.

Given the current political climate, many of us are examining our personal role within the collective whole. Aligning personal Solar year with collective Solar is one facet of our entwined life on Earth.  

12 Genuine, Fresh Start Dates in 2017

copper-1476023_1280-swirl

We are at that time of year when we turn the page. We have reviewed the past year, released what we no longer want and set our vision for a wonderful, majical, fulfilling 2017. A new beginning, a fresh start.

Many people use a restart date that coincides with a natural cycle, like the Solstice or the Spring Equinox, wherever they consider the start of a new year. Many cultures start the New Year with a New Moon.  For many others, though, January 1 is the reset button. It does helps to use markers for assessment and evaluation and the marker of the Gregorian Calendar Year is deep in our collective psyche.

In whatever measurement, a natural cycle or the common calendar, one year seems a long time to hold the focus. Much can fall through the cracks, distraction overwhelms and focus wanes. It seems inevitable that accountability falters when held in the frame for one full year.

There is another way to release, revise and measure.  This other way uses each lunar cycle as a definitive unit for accountability. As I have written before, cycles are the current through which we flow through life.

This 28-day cycle measurement is easier on the body, the mind and the emotions because our Moon is considered Mother energy and we feel her flow. The Lunar Cycle is not as stern as a full year’s measurement. Yes, we can use both cyclic measurements, with perhaps the year as an overview and the lunar month as a consistent check-in point.

If you accept the invitation to use the Moon as marker for bringing intentions, goals and visions into alignment with your wisdom and your action, the twelve New Moons for 2017 are listed below.  The two listed in bold are eclipses, especially potent days for reviews and restarts and I will write more about those in an upcoming blog post.

One suggestion for maximizing these review/restart pivots is to mark three full 24 hour periods that precede these dates and times on your calendar using the notation, “Dark of the Moon.”  The Dark of the Moon is the emptying out phase of this natural cycle and bodies resonate with this rhythm.   During the Dark Moon time, limit your schedule as much as you can and allow for extra rest and inner wandering. Soon after the New Moon, acknowledge the upward surge of energy; the restart has begun.

Use the Dark Moon for gentle release, stillness and divine time with your Soul. At each New Moon, you can set a goal, along with an action plan for how to get there.

For hearty souls who want more, there is an additional refresh, restart pivot time each lunar month that is determined by the phase of the Moon in which you are born. This is the Personal Lunar Cycle; the other is the Collective Lunar Cycle, as that is operational for all of us on Earth. Online training is in the works for the potent Personal Lunar Cycle. If you want more information before then, contact me.

Here are the dates and times for the New Moons in 2017.

Many blessing wishes as you align your Light with Moon Light.

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.

tiger-1673874_1280-resting

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!

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.

In & Out Rhythms of Natural Time

It is the end of January and Lake Superior is not yet frozen. Yesterday, with the temperature in the mid 20s, I was sitting in the warmth of my car, communing with the Lake. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a kayaker paddling up the coastline. My first thought was that it must be freezing to be so close to the water like that. Then, I settled into watching the rhythm of this lone kayaker as he paddled his way through the waters. Observing the right, left, in, out, unceasing rhythm of his stabilizing paddling was meditative.

Watching him in his rhythmic process, it came to me that the ebbs and flows of natural time are like this, too; just like the breath, just like paddling a kayak, the repeating in and out rhythm of life.

A recent change I made relates to the in and out rhythm of the meridian time table. People who work with the meridians share that organs and systems of the body have a two-hour time frame where the work of that organ takes center stage. If you google “meridian time chart,” you will find options of charts to review. Some of the organs are regarded as yin, others are yang and this gives us the in and out, ebb and flow of the rhythmic, coordinated collaboration of the hard working organs of our physical bodies.

My Qigong teacher devoted recent classes to issues of sleep. In one of these classes, he shared how the gall bladder has its process of detoxifying release during the hours of 11:00 PM to 1:00 AM. While he did not say this, I somehow got, perhaps by osmosis, that the optimal time to go to sleep is11:00 PM, so that the gall bladder can have a chance for optimal functioning.

The gall bladder is an important organ for clearing emotional debris and this organ is associated with peace of mind. I have been going to sleep at 11:00 PM for a couple of weeks now and I do experience benefit in my life from this change.

Prior to making this choice of eyes closed, all devices off by 11:00 PM, my bed time was unstructured. Rarely was it was before 1:00 or 2:00 AM.

While I did not see it before, I do feel a connection now between maintaining a structure around sleep time and living with natural time. Before, I was free flowing with the time that I went to sleep, in keeping with the fluidity I feel, in general, living with natural time. The body is key and as I have written before, the timing of the moon through the personal and collective lunar cycles and void of course moon times can be experienced viscerally.

What is different for me now, though, is that I am integrating a rhythm that has been used in parts of the world for over 5000 years, the meridian time table with its cyclic workflow of our organs.

Structure is good; I like working with a set time for sleep. I find that going to sleep at 11:00 PM helps me focus the waking hours I do have in a more respectful way.

How about you? Do you work with a structured sleep time and how does that relate to your well-being?

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.

Serendipity in contrast to Synchronicity

In the personal dark moon, the gravitational pull to rest is strong and counter balances habituated conditioning to keep going. I have just transitioned through my personal dark Moon and in that time, a three day period, I relaxed into exploring what intrigues me.

What intrigues me is often fed by the inclusive content of Sharon-Ann Riley’s New Earth Library blog. Here, she rounds up the latest postings from people actively working with the frequency shift into the 5th Dimension.

One of the listings on Sharon’s blog on Sunday, January 3, 2016 included a posting titled Quantum Flub, Cold Coming. The words “cold coming” caught my eye because I live in a cold climate and despite it being winter, I would like to stay warm. The link brought me to a youtube video of a daily space weather report posted by Suspicious Observers. As I viewed this first video I was intrigued by the mention within it of the vacuum catastrophe, and I watched a referenced video on this subject, also by Suspicious Observers. After watching that second video, youtube automatically followed up with another vacuum catastrophe video posted by John Ten and covering a portion of a lecture by the renown physicist, Nassim Haramein. This is the video to which I draw your attention.

What strikes me in Nassim Haramein’s Vacuum Catastrophe video is when he says that the understanding of “creating your own reality” is missing a feedback loop. In his words, yes, we do create our own reality and, he adds, reality also creates us. This missing feedback loop of reality creating us occurs through an exchange; what we are feeding the field is met with what the field is feeding back to us, basically, consensus reality. Morphic field involves unified systems, like cells and organs organizing into the human body as one example, and the consensual reality of a group, as another example. A definition of morphic field can be found here.

The mention of morphic field and consensual reality captured my attention because in a class on abundance that I took some years ago, one of the techniques that the teacher generously shared with us is to connect with the morphic field when we want to materialize or manifest something. For instance, if you wish to be a great artist, connect with the great artists in your field who have gone before you and have achieved success. One example of how to do this is to consciously connect with the people who have excelled in your field, living or deceased, and say something like: “As I embark on this endeavor, I call on all the masters who have gone before, — it would help to name them specifically — I join this morphic field. This is not to say that you are a master artist yourself, simply that you are joining, energetically, the community of people who have mastered what you want to do.

You can explore other ways to activate your conscious connection with morphic fields to better engage in the feedback loop of what you are putting into the field and what you are getting back from consensual reality. I imagine that this process takes practice and a playful, stress-free approach.

Apparently, there is potency in joining the energetic, vibrational, frequency field of success or health or wealth or what ever it is you wish to materialize. For instance, someone wishing for better health might connect with the morphic field of all of those who live with full health and happiness. Or if you want to connect with wealth, perhaps you might invoke the morphic field of those who are wealthy and with kind heart and awake consciousness.

Energy knows no bounds, there are no distinctions in time or space; connecting with the morphic field of those who have had success in the endeavors you wish to pursue might be the missing feedback loop, as Nassim Haramein suggests, in living the life that you want for yourself. What working with the morphic field suggests to me is a 5 Dimension way of living because it connects and it harmonizes.

The title of this post is Serendipity in contrast to Synchronicity and it is this train of thought that prompted me to write about this this experience. In my Personal Dark Moon phase, relaxed and reflecting, I found information that felt like a serendipitous gift. This finding opened my consciousness to the experience of a positive feedback loop with the Cosmos. Yes, I could say that this was a synchronous finding and I often write about synchronicity which is a matter of cohesive timing, an intersection. Finding out about the vacuum catastrophe, with its reminder of the power of the morphic field feels different than a synchronous event; it feels serendipitous. Serendipity feels like a treat.

How has serendipity connected with you lately?
