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.

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.

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

 

 

Follow your Intuition: Spring Equinox Birthing

Following your intuition these past three months may have felt like a wild ride. Since the Great Shift that occurred with the Winter Solstice of 2012 we have been in transitional mode, similar to that of being in a birth canal.  Quickening, crowning and soon, Delivery!  The Spring Equinox, March 20 2013 is being heralded as birth time for our life in this new dimension of living light and love.

Intuitive awareness, or multidimensional knowing, has increased exponentially since the Shift of 2012 Solstice. Ways that this heightened awareness is showing up for me include:

Memory releases:  Experiences from the past bubble up spontaneously or as waking thoughts.  The memory flashes and I release.  The feeling experience is of  freedom, and it magnetizes me to Now.

Hard edge softening:  The need to know and the need to know now are supplanted by a gentle swaying of openness to infinite possibilities.  For this shift, I am using a technique I  learned years ago and had not used much since.  I use it now, with effectiveness. The technique is to ask myself before sleep and upon awakening, “How can I….” or “”Show me how to….” This soft questioning replaces a clear, stated intention of “I want….”or “I need….” with an understanding that wants and needs are met through co-active partnering between the living energy field and me. The one being questioned is the whole of one’s being, body, soul, spirit, minus rational mind!  Intuitive knowing is not accessible through the mind. Sorry! The field of questioning is the vast living energy field, where possibilities are infinite, beyond reach of the thinking mind.

Answers, directions, new pathways open with this kind of questioning.  A recent response to my questioning arrived as a waking thought.  A healer with whom I had worked four years ago came to my awareness. I had not thought, seen, heard of or from him in all of that time.  I trusted my inner guidance and took it as a sign in response to my questioning. I called him that day and am working with him again for  release of  murky shadow. Specifically, my — up till then — unconscious impulse of defendedness. This habituated, adaptive patterning was a learned response that I now choose to unlearn.  This patterning is not me, never was and I willingly, consciously release and re-pattern this pathway of defended response.  This is where mind can help — in recognizing the unconscious impulse patterning when it happens in real time. When the unconscious patterning is brought to consciousness then it can be released and the pathway re-patterned with other choices of response. Maybe humour, or taking a breath, or bringing up kindness — for self or other — from deep in the heart.

Living Now: That great master, Eckhart Tolle, helped get us ready for living Now with his classic book, The Power of Now. He offers many tools on his website, a lot of them free, for upping one’s vibrational frequency through life in the moment.  Living in Now represents real adventure. It is exhilarating, freeing and full of potency. Try it!

I have more optimism now than I can ever remember feeling.  There is more receptivity, more buoyancy. Life is lived at a new frequency. Colours are more vibrant, relationships are more authentic. I am freer. Past and future are relegated to the margins; living in the present is the only viable option now. Knowing and trusting intuition provides a compass for life in the Now.  How are following your intuition in this Spring Time?  Share in the comments section or through my contact me form how your life is opening in this New Field.

Many blessing wishes!

 

 

Power Dates

Intuition leads the cover story of the August 2011 issue of Oprah magazine. While this feature is chockful of intuitive techniques, one technique not mentioned is alignment with natural cycles.

 

The core of my work with intuition is alignment with natural cycles. We are nature beings and the cycles of nature synchronize with the cycles of our bodies and inner life. Imagine the benefits when we acknowledge and align with natural cycles! The link between inner and outer gets clearer and intuition gets stronger, as does and a sense of safety in connecection with Life.

 

Coming up are three pivotal sets of dates that provide powerful openings for synchronizing alignment with the natural world. The first of these dates is Monday, July 25, 2011.

 

In the Mayan Calendar, this is the “Day Out of Time.” It is like a free day, a pivotal, potent day that occurs between the end of one Mayan Calendar year and the next. In all cyclical systems, there is a gap, a gasp of stillness, when one cycle ends and the next begins.

 

In my experience over decades working with natural cycles, this gap of stillness has the potential to take us out of the experience of duality and into the experience of unity, oneness. It might be momentary, a split second, however, it is a visceral experience. This melting of duality, the sense of separation, happens on the subtle level as one cycle flows into the next. It is an exquisite moment of vivid presence.

 

Day Out of Time is a day of celebration and creativity, fun and play. It is a border crossing time and it is good to go into it with awareness of its potential for change. If you would like further information on this Day Out of Time, search those keywords, as well as Mayan Calendar and immerse yourself in unfolding mystery.

 

The second set of power dates coming up occur from 9:12 PM Eastern Daylight Time, July 27, 2011 to 02:16 AM, Eastern Daylight Time on July 30, 2011. During this time, the Sun is in the sign of Leo and the Moon is in the sign of Cancer. These signs represent the home bases of the two primary lights in our life, the Sun and Moon. There is a natural order here and the opportunity is to synchronize with our own true nature in alignment with Life. Notice how you feel, what you want, what you want to do and transmit wishes, hopes, dreams and desires, as well as constructive actions, into the Universe.

 

Scientists tell us that eggs can stand on end during the days of the equinoxes. The Sun in Leo and the Moon in Cancer represents a similar potency of vertical axis alignment of us within nature. It happens once a calendar year and it is ours to acknowlege and enjoy.

 

The third set of pivotal dates coming up is two-fold. August 8, 2011 is the cross -quarter day. In the Cardinal Cross of our existence, North, South, East and West, cross-quarter days represent a fulcrum, the pivotal turning from one season to the next. Cross-quarter days are potent times for listening for direction. Spending time in nature helps access deep listening.

 

Two days before this, August 6 and 7th 2011 are potent manifesting days when our Sun is at the midpoint of the Galatic Center and the Super Galactic Center. We are in a pivotal configuration with our cosmos during this time, one that represents a sublime alignment with our galaxy. Again, this is a time to discern with kindness and wisdom what it is we want and need and then reach out with open arms, releasing wishes, wants, needs and desires on one hand and opening to receive, on the other hand, intuition and inner wisdom regarding the fulfillment of those wishes, needs, wants and desires.


Alignment with natural cycles represents a powerful technique for opening intuition and knowing how to live the potential of who we are as co-creators with Life. Our life, on planet earth, in a living galaxy.
