If Asking, What Now…

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.

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!

Sunrise, Sunset

sunrise

Through a moving FB post, a friend opened me to a new experience of Natural Time – the simple noticing of Sunrise and Sunset and their daily fluctuations.

This is a brilliant practice for moving through the hold that cultural conditioning about time tries to have over us. When we honour nature’s fluidity, we open to our own fluidity. For those in affinity with the Divine Feminine, Goddess Energy and Eastern philosophies, dawn and twilight have long been identified as Dakini time, when there is high receptivity to receiving intuition. Sunrise and sunset are Soulful living times.

Personal energy flows, and with it, power, stamina and focus, in relation to the ebbs and flows of the natural world. We are cyclic beings within a cyclic world. We can use information about natural cycles to our advantage. We can use the rhythms of life to plan, schedule, choose and create experiences that optimize our quality of life.

Do you want more time with your kids? Do you want an easier flow through challenging work projects? Do you want rest that satiates and restores you?

If yes, with this blog, you have found a place that offers information, resources, training and support to help you open to the flow of Time as an active participant rather than as passive subject.

For example:

Knowing when the Moon is Void of Course, we can choose to indulge in rest, relaxation, quiet cuddle time or mundane organizational tasks rather than force forward when our satellite, the Moon, has lost connection. With the Moon out of receiving range, our bodies feel this void on the physical energy level; focus is dimmed because the gravitational pull is toward reflection in contrast to action, and work projects meet with delays and difficulties. Work arounds involve knowing when the Moon is void and planning and scheduling accordingly. You can receive direct support about this here.

Knowing about Dark of the Moon days, and planning and scheduling accordingly, enhances dissolution of what has ended with the close of the Lunar cycle. This awareness allows for clear and uncluttered space to receive in the new cycle, with the restart button of each New Moon.

Observing the simple shifts of Sunrises and Sunsets imprints within our psyches the living awareness that we are in sync with the flow of Life.

Additional products to help identify and align with natural cycles, as well as services in support of shifting to an organic experience of Time, are in the works.  The Void of Course Moon Club is already up and running.

If you are not already a subscriber to this newsletter, consider subscribing, you can use the subscription button to the top left, and take advantage of special offers as online training, guided imagery relaxations and Lunar Rhythms Energy Club options come to market.

Love and Peace, and let’s flow!

Seasonal Shifts

fall-1072821_1280

On subtle energy levels, the shift from summer to fall is from hot and dry to dry and cold. This information has been passed down to us from long ago ancestors who lived this knowing. Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Ayurveda, and the foundation of modern western medicine, the study and practice of herbs, are based on awareness of subtle energy shifts within seasonal changes.

Each season has three parts, a beginning, middle and end. These three distinct parts relate to the Sun’s movement through the three signs of the zodiac within a season. For Fall, this is Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius.

Each of these parts relate to the three basic modus operandi of universal energy principles recognized by indigenous peoples and sacred teachings throughout most world systems. The beginning of a season is just that, an initiating time. The middle part of the season is a holding time, giving what was newly initiated the time and structure to gel and then be dissolved again, the ebb and flow of life, within the third part of a season.

This Fall

On Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 10:22 AM, Eastern Standard Time, we “officially” move into the Fall Season in the Northern Hemisphere. This time marking is based on when our Sun moves into the zodiac sign of Libra, according to some systems of the zodiac.

For the past several weeks, in the Northern Hemisphere, we have been feeling this dismantling of the summer season as, in the last part of summer, we moved from dry toward cold.  We see this shift in the form of a little chill in the air, a look toward bringing out warmer clothing and a tendency toward food and drink that is more sustaining than summer fare.

To bring conscious awareness to what happens on these subtle energy levels helps us support our bodies, a most important asset as we move through the greater shift to the 5th Dimension.  Our bodies are our knowing tools now. How we feel, what we sense through felt experience and intuitive awakenings, helps us navigate the territory of not knowing, which seems to be everywhere now.

If working consciously with this seasonal shift resonates with you, here are suggestions for supporting this shift on the triumvirate of body, mind and Spirit:

Body

Consciously recognize the shift in food choices that your body wants. There are classic books in support of this shift, Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford and Staying Healthy with the Seasons by Elson M. Haas

Notice, and acknowledge, how your body wants to move in this new seasonal shift. Are you nudged toward a different kind of exercise or exercising at a different time of day; are your sleep patterns shifting?

Mind

We moved through late Summer discerning, separating wheat from chaff. We are left with what we want to keep. Part of this new season relates to Harmony and Beauty.  How are we bringing both of these essential energies into our lives now? Are we bringing our minds home to what is essential to us, or are we still allowing ourselves to be distracted by nonessentials?

Spirit

The cycles keep turning and with each turn we can spiral to a higher vibrational frequency. On a core level, the shift from summer to fall involves transition from active phase to contemplative phase. What have we learned through this Solar Year so far, since last Winter Solstice? How are we preparing ourselves for the end of the Solar Year? We have one season left, this fall season, before the next Solar Year starts with the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2016.

Goal setting can be tricky, however, it does help to acknowledge what we want and how we are contributing to or inhibiting that reach. In its essence, the Fall season is about Harmony, Power and Freedom. If these words feel too broad, notice how you instinctively shift with each of the three parts of this Fall Season.  Feel the shifts! Dates are September 21, October 22 and November 21.

Body, mind and Soul benefit when we consciously acknowledge subtle invitations to honour and align with the energy shifts of the natural world.

May Fall be blessed, rich and colourful for you!         autumn-leaves-1486064_1280

 

 

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.

Feeling Stuck?

Or, how to keep breathing when things are not moving.

You may have been feeling stuck lately, with the feeling of statis similar to being stuck in a vat of molasses.

A Natural Time: Body as Timer perspective on this delay is that both Mercury and Mars are Retrograde. With Mercury going direct on May 22, movement begins, however, there is a shadow period, as I detailed in a post on Mercury Retrograde Cycles. Mercury moves out of the shadow period this cycle on June 7 and Mars is retrograde until the end of June, 2016.

Briefly, retrograde motion is an apparent backward, or retrograde, movement of planetary orbit, as it appears to us on Earth. Many people feel these delayed energies in direct life experience. With Mercury, the retrograde motion covers technology and communication; with Mars, the retrograde motion covers action and the energy of attraction with what we want in life. Retrograde motion involves delays and we often rework ourselves in the process of waiting for forward motion.

How to Wait?

Life does not come with an instruction manual on how to wait. We all have to learn our own path to waiting peacefully. For me, learning to wait has a circuitous route, with multiple components. Content waiting calls forth a skill set that can take lifetimes to develop. This skill set includes patience, trust, getting out of one’s own way, not taking things personally and active collaboration with a Living Field of energy that surrounds, informs, supports and sustains us.  Taking each of these components, one at a time, reveals that they enfold into one other as a flowing, complex whole.

Patience, to me, means, noticing that something is on delay and not fighting it. To be patient means that I have to find ways within my energy body, free of agitation, anxiety, contorted thought, and wait. Patience means that I accept that there are unseen energies at play, doing their part within a time frame over which I have no control.  Patience means care-giving the desire or longing, the want or the need, the vision or the dream, until both conscious and cosmic components come together.

Whom to Trust?

This kind of patience is built on trust. What is it to trust? Whom or what are we trusting?  When outcome feels static, with an absence of response or a delay in connection or implementation, it helps to trust our Soul, our Life Dream, our Heart’s Desire and all of the invisible helpers supporting us in our endeavors. Who we are and what we dream is bigger than our own Self, it is our Self within the Universe, playing our resonant and accepted piece. We are not the only energies at play and sometimes, we have to wait. Trust in ourselves, our vision, and the cooperative, collaborative, co-creating Universe helps with waiting. Unwavering trust helps.

Getting out of our own Way

Activating trust takes us to the next step, which is getting out of our own way. The vision of what we want to do is actually a cosmic project. We are informed, through intuition or the dream or mentored guidance, we feel resonant with a choice of action and we say yes. When we meet with delay, it is vital to remember that we are a single player on a cosmic stage and many other pieces and parts are at play, even though we might not feel or see them. We can learn to be patient and trust that our cue to resume action will come. Getting tangled up in limiting, rational thought can twist us out of alignment, missing our cue into movement when the delay lifts and momentum starts up again.

We get out of our own way through conscious collaboration with the unseen helpers in support of us and our projects.  These projects can be about our life’s work or finding our mate, or moving household, whatever it is that your Heart desires. What you want is legitimate and yours, as long as there is no harm involved. The invisible helpers can be angels, spiritual and lineage ancestors, saints, masters, teachers, healers, nature beings, elementals, like fairies, leprechauns or any beneficent helpers on the unseen side of our reality based life.

Trust involves acceptance that we are working with unseen energies of the beneficent kind, we are working with our Soul, including parts of our Soul that may not yet be embodied. We are working with forces in the Universe that are vast and ever present to help us in support of our fulfillment and materializing what we want for Life. In trust, they help us with timing that goes beyond what we understand.

Getting out of our own way is based on direct inner knowing that we are not alone. There is an integral connection of Self to what we wish for; there is legitimacy to our longing. When we are met face-to-face with prolonged delay we may meet, head on, conditioned beliefs like scarcity thinking, limitation thinking, feelings of not deserving. Getting out of our own way requires ownership that what we dream, imagine, long for, is ours to have. It requires upping the frequencies to realize, on visceral levels, that we are co-collaborators with a loving universe that wants for us what we want for ourselves. It requires opening to support that our unseen helpers will co-create with us to materialize what burns inside of us to create.

Crystal Clearing to I AM

Getting out of our own way requires not taking things personally.  This piece is huge, because it involves crystal clearing on the continuum of our humanity with our divinity. When we say, state, live I AM, we are claiming our divinity within our humanity. When we take things personally, we are stuck on an unconscious want or need or false belief that limits and confines us. Through personal choice of processes, dreamwork, journaling, silent walks in nature, talking with a friend, consulting with a guide or mentor, we can unveil the hidden need and embrace it rather than continually reject it and have it play out as us getting in our own way.

When we get out of our own way, we affirm that we are part of, we belong, we are supported and what we want will show up in divine design; we are not materializing by ourselves!

Yes, there are times in life, months on end, when it feels like nothing is moving. With the recent Mercury Retrograde and the current Mars retrograde, and from the perspective of Body as Timer, the energy can feel frustratingly stagnant. Please caution against hopelessness.  During these slow-to-no movement times, notice what is your stopping block. Is it not having patience, is it not trusting that you will get what you want, that you will be fulfilled, is it getting in your own way, trying to move forward when Life’s breaks are on, is it taking things personally? Explore your personal road blocks for the hidden treasures that they are. Allow connection in a fuller, more conscious way with the invisible help that is available to us as human beings. Whether you know these helpers as angels, or Saints, or beings of the Devic Realm, by whatever name you call these helpers, open to the partnership, the collaboration, that takes the pain out of waiting.

How do you work with the cosmic delay periods? Please share in the comments section, as we all learn from, and with, one another.

Drum roll: Void of Course Moon Club

Have you ever wanted to harness the ups and downs of your energy cycles as they relate to productivity? The Void of Course Moon Club meets this need. For a nominal fee of $7 US dollars a month, you get Void of Course Moon (VOC) times for one of the following time zones, Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, London, UK. These VOC times are delivered by email with each New Moon of your subscription for lunar the month ahead. A narrative story about working with the Void of Course Moon is included in this monthly email, along with the call in information for a monthly conference call to discuss planning and scheduling with the Void of Course Moon times.

Who Benefits from Joining

Joining this Club benefits those who struggle with time management, those who experience stress from busyness or overwork to the detriment of well-being. Crafters and makers, all manner of self-employed entrepreneurs, can find benefit in this Void of Course information. Anyone who is employed and feels the pressures of producing against all odds may also find benefit in learning about and working with Void of Course Moon times.
The reason this club has benefit for such a wide spectrum of folk is because living in sync with Void of Course Moon times is one of the best techniques for experiencing time as a fluid, inner experience. Working with Void Moon helps open the experience of body as timer and provides vivid contrast for the constrained experience of time as an external controller outside of direct, physical experience.

Why Now?

Since the conditioning of mechanical time (produce at all costs, no matter how the body feels) runs deep within our culture, it can take years to feel and appreciate the value of flowing with the Moon, our natural Timer. In other words, opening the door to this club does not mean that aligning with natural cycles is an easy experience. Joining this club will be a learning experience and can be a fun experience.

Void of course Moon times can best be explained by sacred geometry, which is everywhere in our lives. The next time you are at a meeting or a social gathering, look to see who is directly opposite you. These sitting or standing configurations speak to the energetic alignments among those present. For example, the person 180 degrees apart from you is most likely to be someone who supports you totally or someone with whom an “opposition” exists. You can also look to those sitting at 45 degree angles from you; there is likely to be some friction in these relationships, some dynamic to work through to come to a fuller, more mutually appreciative understanding.

“As above, so below.” These words suggest that what is happening here on Earth is reflected in the skies above. Sacred geometry also shows up in the ever moving planets and stars in the sky. A Void of Course Moon occurs when the Moon is not making any aspect of geometric shape with the planets. The technical definition goes deeper than this, however, for our purposes here, keeping it to basics helps with the very real challenge of changing our relationship with time, moving past centuries of conditioning and opening to the direct, visceral experience of time as a living flow.

The great scientist Buckminster Fuller taught that energy is contained in form. With a Void of Course Moon there is no geometric form to contain the energy. The physical experience can be felt as void, like energy flowing through a sieve, into the void.

This is why there is a business advantage to knowing about these times and using them for planning and scheduling and this Club helps with that. During a Void of Course Moon it can be challenging to stay focused. If we keep pushing forward during a Void Moon time, we might experience losses, uphill battles, and often, the need to apply extra effort or redo things. Working smarter, not harder definitely applies to those who follow Void of Course Moon times.
The Void Moon occurs every two and one half days for varying amounts, from minutes to more than 24 hours. These are optimal times for rest and reflection, for releasing and receiving information from the invisible planes. They are times to allow rest for our bodies, minds and Souls. Rest is an integral component of the productivity cycle and nature is a great teacher.

Bonus Benefit!

Aligning with the void Moon times for planning and scheduling also provides a blueprint for present moment living based on the wisdom of Body as Timer. These skills are key now, as we transition to the New Life/New Time of 5th Dimension living.

It is a tumultuous time as we make this transition. Come join this Club and learn how to align with the flow of the Moon. The inner alignment is already there, as the body feels these rhythms on subtle levels. Tt is now time to bring this subtle body awareness into consciousness and support ourselves more fully with human/nature integration. Come, join the Club!

3rd in a Series of Letting Go

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Down the rabbit hole and the only substance involved was raw, unfiltered, multidimensional Life.

For the past two weeks these blog posts have been about Letting Go and that theme continued as a lived experience for me this past week.  Our collective move from life in 3D to life in 5D is uncharted territory. Nothing is the same as it was, we are not quite sure how we got here and we have no clue as to what is next. There are moments that are super challenging and cause us to have to let go of rational understanding. Our hearts are open, and our eyes, yet the shifts are rapid and complete; at times it feels like we are white water rafting in the course of daily life. Whew!

The Move

In response to my personal alignment with this shift to 5D, I have made major life changes. I left employment that I enjoyed, yet was done with, and left family and friends to relocate to be near a big, beautiful, massive body of water in daily life. This move was an affirmative response to a call from Nature to live near Lake Superior, and in a place where I might find more community than I had previously known. I, like so many others, have been aching for community.

I have found community and the sustaining beauty of nature, however, after one year, I do not feel settled.  At times I feel like a ping pong ball in my own life. Here, there, where? This was not how it was “supposed” to be.  I made the move in good faith and with informed choice, yet the settling in experience, at times, feels severe.

This week, my letting go experience was in releasing to full and total surrender. As children in play, we used to call this “crying uncle.” In adult life, it is unconditioned surrender. Feeling through each Now is all that I can do. Multidimensional consciousness is just that; we are living with layers of consciousness like the layers of bands within old trees and layers of sediment from the surface of the Earth to its core. We have to deal with multiple levels simultaneously. This can feel confusing and overwhelming, beyond the capacities of our regular coping. We need a bigger field of coping and surrender, with its release of conditioned responses, helps us find our way within this larger, untraveled territory.

I used to work as a professional astrologer and pieces of that work continue through my current work with Natural Time and Intuition and Time as a Felt Experience, with Body as Timer.  I let go of working more fully with astrology because it seems to me that we are, collectively, working with a much bigger canvas now than our solar system. It seems to me that we are working with systems way beyond what is known. By systems, I mean galactic and supergalactic spirals of cosmic community. We have been invited to this grand new arena, yet we do not know the territory. We learn as we go.

As a way of dealing with multidimensional living, I do, occasionally, look at my own chart and have awareness of major transits as they occur in real time.  One of the major transits that I have going on now, personally, has traditionally been associated with depression. It is a reformative energy on the emotional life, this I know. This transit has had one layer of the multilayer effect of multidimensional life now and that contributing effect takes me to rock bottom where the only viable option is to walk in the forest of surrender.

Angst, yes, momentarily, however, also a gift. This most recent experience of surrender has helped me release me from willfulness, force and effort. Ah, yes. If only. In my current state, I have had to let go of thinking that I have answers for major life choices, like living here, there, where? In my current state of accepted surrender, my recourse is to keep moving through each moment with the inner inquiry of “What’s next.” Where is the energy for me in this moment? What calls my attention for focus? Where do I feel alignment? Each choice has to be consciously considered and long-term planning is not operational.

Choice-making

In everyone’s life there are myriad choices regarding what can bring happiness, what can bring joy, what can bring money, what can bring fulfillment, what can bring connection. In my personal life, with this collective, unprecedented shift of dimensional consciousness, I pay attention to what has my awareness, I offer daily prayer for dissolution of the veil between conscious and unconscious and I ask and listen regarding what has life for me and what does not have life for me.

I ask for help, from my Soul, from the New Field, from Life, to breathe through the rocks and hard places, breath through the angst, breath through the FEAR, breath through not knowing. With all that breathing, I notice that I am still standing. It is not easy, yet there are moments of relief, release, wonder and informed direction.

It helps to pay attention to the things that matter to me.  For instance, there was a communal invitation this week was to participate in a labyrinth walk, part of World Labyrinth Day. I have walked labyrinths before and while this spiritual practice has not been a personal path for me, I did want to participate in this local event.

Our group was blessed by a facilitator who knows labyrinth walking. He suggested that we start our walk with an intentional prayer and work with the 3 Rs, Release as we go in; Receive as we are at the Center; Return (to wholeness) on the walk out. Being in active surrender mode now, the release part was comforting. In the center of the labyrinth that we walked, there is a bench. As I reached the center, I sat on the bench, deeply kissed by the sun, and I asked to receive. Information came pouring through the sunrays and up through the encircled Earth and through the silent care of community. It was magnificent.  Answers did come, pieces of the big puzzle of a personal life, sustaining filaments threading to next moments.

Our lives are unfolding in sometimes angst-filled ways, not unlike earlier times in everyone’s life. Yet now, the path is uncharted and long term planning seems defunct. We are doing this new life piece by piece, choice by choice. It hurts if we try to get too far ahead of ourselves because then we are taken away from the moment, where the information is. I was driven to the ground of surrender and I did surrender. It seems that this is the beginning of a new world, not the end. With each surrender, and based on my own inner sensate volition, my own, sharply honed inner truth discerning of “Yes, this does have life for me or no, thank you, I pass,” I align with this greater canvas of uncharted territory, this bigger picture that is dancing us into our new life.

Like so many others, I thought this process would be over by now, that we would have reached the land of Nirvana and life would be easy, breezy and effortless. I have been on this path since the Harmonic Convergence of August, 1987 and the “payoff” always seems just around the corner. As I experienced in the labyrinth walk, the corners keep turning.

How about you and your life challenges now? Is surrender part of the currency of your life, too? Do share your surrender story in the comments below.

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!
