Fourth Quarter Week Friday, March 25, 1:38 AM, EDT to New Moon, April 1, 2022 2:25 AM

Is there anything more human than letting go? We grow, build, and accumulate, and poof, we must let it all go. The ever-constant need to release is inherent in being human. Attachments develop, though, and it is sometimes hard to let go.

This closing week of the Lunar Cycle provides a practice ground for letting go. We can let go of efforting, who we think we are, how we thought it would turn out, and relationships that once meant the world to us. We can let go of work that has become a drudge.

Letting go is a critical skill for accessing the 5th Dimensional consciousness. The energy field within and around us is changing to a light-filled experience. We can no longer carry the old baggage. We must release what no longer serves or interests us in this quantum leap of evolution. While the process of release can be excruciating, the post-release experience can be freeing.

This week, consider inviting expansion through letting go. Scan emotions, feelings, habits, choices, people, actions for what no longer serves you in the way they once did. Permit yourself to let go of what is outdated.

Allow the dissolving Light of the Moon, the approach of complete darkness, the energetic imprint of slowing down, to open the release valve on what no longer serves you. Release, and be ready in a week or ten days, with the next new Moon, to spiral up on that next turn of the arc of your life. Release, and become you.

 Suggested Ways for Letting Go

  1. Admit that it hurts
  2. Provide yourself with TLC for releasing what was once so important and valued
  3. Recognize through history, collective and personal, that release is the human process
  4. Maybe have a practice where you say with each breath, I breathe out, I release, then name what you are releasing
  5. The pain of releasing is replaced by Lightness of Being. Let that sensate experience in, with acknowledgment, when it comes

Embodying the Moon’s flow is one part of my work.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Monday, March 28, brings an extended Void Moon time. Mondays can be challenging without a Void Moon and during a Void Moon Monday, forging ahead, especially in this last week of the Lunar Cycle, can result in a war of wills, yours and the Divine Will.

Cosmic timing is in play, and thought does not have access to all the puzzle pieces. Allow your body to be an intuitive navigator. What does the sensate body want and need? Ask the mind to stay out of it.

Resting is part of the productivity cycle, and information is power. Monday, March 28, because of the 4th Quarter Lunar week and a 14-hour Void Moon, is a day to listen deep from within and respect the dip in the doing.

What to do while you wait during a Void Moon

Take a walk ~ Take a nap ~  Daydream  ~ Write in your journal ~ Play  ~  Take a bubble-bath  ~  Clean your house, cupboards, closets, basement, office, files, computer files, old email  ~   Rest  ~ Do creative expressive play ~

Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Heeding what your body wants during Void Moons –more internal focus, less external focus, and more stillness, quiet, and rest –are great ways to embody the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Saturday, March 26, 7:51 PM to 8:56 PM  EDT

Monday, March 28, 10:12 AM to 12:33 AM Tuesday, March 29 EDT

Thursday, March 31, 2:37 AM to 5:31 AM EDT

Blessed Be. May you have happy endings this week to prepare for New Moon’s new beginnings next week.

Fourth Quarter of Lunar Cycle, Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 5:32 PM EST

Fourth Quarter of Lunar Cycle, Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 5:32 PM EST to  New Moon, March 2, 2022, 12:36 PM

There is forward movement since retrograde planets have turned direct and winter hibernation in North America ends. This week, though, the opportunity is to pause and reflect before the New Moon on Wednesday, March 2.

If you feel the slowdown as a sensate body experience, please celebrate that subtle awareness and consent to its call to stillness. Connecting with the cycles of nature, as our far back ancestors did, aligns with cosmic opportunities. It is not always opportune to move full steam ahead.

The magic of the Universe is often delivered by being in the right place at the right time. So, too, does being “on time” with the Universe. Our Moon teaches us this enduring rhythm of in and out, cycle upon cycle. Letting go of our conditioned relationship to Time – constantly staying in the actively producing mode — limits outcomes. Opening to Time as a felt experience allows for imagination to do its work and for inspiration to rouse us and for intuition to guide us.

Inspired imagination that ignites intuition is abundantly accessible when we align with the quiet, still, reflective geocosmic energy near the end of each Lunar Cycle. This week is one of those times.

The experience of aligning with the ebb and flow of the Moon is in our blood and bones. Simply aligning with the Moon’s cycle breaks us free from the false conditioning of Time as external control. That conditioned, in contrast to felt, relationship with Time wastes opportunity and limits possibility.

Slow your roll this week. Feel the pull to gravity as this Lunar Cycle comes to its end. It is okay to let go, and by doing so, we make room for the fresh starts that come with each New Moon.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

The Void of Course Moon times this week are relatively short, except for the dark of the Dark Moon, the last day of this Lunar cycle when the Moon is void for 19 hours. (See the exact times below.) We are under the spell of a Dark Moon and a Void Moon. That day is prime Time to rest and tend to ultimate self-care and intuition gathering.

Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Hearing what your body wants during Void Moons, generally, more internal focus than external focus and more stillness, quiet, and rest, are great ways to start embodying the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Thursday, February 24, 10:24 PM to Friday, February 25, 11:27 AM

Sunday, February 27, 9:50 AM to 1:36 PM

Monday, February 28, 9:02 PM to Tuesday, March 1, 3:54 PM EST

Blessed Be. See you next week with the New Moon phase.

Finding Peace through Presence

Whether the hurricane winds, tornados or raging fires are in our immediate vicinity or not, every human heart feels their effects. We all know what devastation looks like, in our lives, and in the lives of others.

These are treacherous times, and Earth Mother, through these weather events and natural disasters, calls us to attention.

How do we find peace with what is happening in our world?  Danielle Egnew, a medium who offers global predictions, offers one perspective. In a recent blog post, she writes that she is changing how she works because of the addictive nature of prediction.  People hear what is forecast and they stop there. The stopping point is most often fear.

We are so much more than fear. As Danielle Egnew writes, we are at the point of choice between being stuck in habituated egoic patterns or living from “Our actual operating system – one of endless miracles, peace, and abundance.”

I wrote about my direct experience of co-creating reality in last week’s blog post. Yes, we are doing this. We are living from the New Earth, with co-creative actuality.

I wish I could remember where I read this next sharing, so that I can source it accurately, because it is a wise perspective of resonance.  Some public figure in the New Earth writings wrote recently that one reason why these cataclysmic events are happening is for us to become heart-directed in our connections with one another. These extraordinary events pull us together, as a human family.

It is time to step up and live from Heart. We have moved through “healing” and into presence. With presence, we take responsibility for our actions as a sovereign being. Danielle Egnew takes this responsibility, as she writes in her blog post, and with consideration of the consequences her choices have on the human family. She presents as brave, and true.

Another reading that feels pertinent right now is from Matt Licata’s exquisite book, The Path is Everywhere. On page 81, he writes about delving into the  multidimensional, sensate experience of fear in order to reveal its directive message to us.

When we do this, we can move through the incapacitation of fear, and into the experience of Living Love as the generator of our new operating system. Miracles happen, abundance is a given and the heart is alive. This is real. This is us. This is choice.

Our actual operating system – one of endless miracles, peace, and abundance.”                                                                                                                                                                       Danielle Egnew

Please share in the comments how you move through fear and stand in unconditioned presence now. What a glory that experience is!

How to Claim 5D Alchemy

5D delivers.  Once we move past the surprise of getting what we requested in full and complete ways, extraneous thought evaporates. There is nothing to do, no big agenda to follow. Effort goes out of receiving and even out of following-up.

Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.                                                                                                                                                    Ken Wilbur

The Story

Unlike many people, I have not ever wanted to own a home. With nomadic blood, I move a lot, in both short and long-distance moves. I do feel that I have settled in place now, coming full circle to where I began. Buying a home, though, is not on my wish list.

Renting has become an option for many people and the market has changed. Prices have gone up and supply has gone down. I wanted to move this past Spring.

My wish list is precise, and long. I require no smoking, no external lights shining into interior rooms, no carpet, pet friendly, quiet, surrounding beauty and the right price.  Nothing matched my list this Spring, so I  decided to settle in place despite a super long commute with traffic that I allow to aggravate me.

Then, it happened.  As Ken Wilber says “Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.  (From CWI No Boundary, page 433.)

My niece, a realtor, told me about a house for rent that meets my wish list.  And here, I have it, a place to call home. This new home allows me to shift toward fuller living. This new residence allows for greater social engagement and cultural enrichment because the commute is cut in half. I will be free from bombastic, artificial light invading inner space, noise pollution that yanks up my nervous system and a lack of green beauty that does nothing for the heart.

When the offer came, there was no losing center. I took the offer as a direct response to my request, and I took the receiving of it in stride. The plotting and planning of packing, moving, changing addresses seem like an ordinary day’s work; neither an ordeal, nor a cause for overenthusiastic anticipation.  The experience is simply something that is happening that is part of the mix of living in the field of alchemical magic, where wishes are granted and dreams are fulfilled.

Like many people, my past is rich with the joys of getting dream jobs or finding beautiful places to live or taking life-changing trips. There was always a roller coaster associated with these experiences; an up and a down.

Now, in 5D, it seems we take good fortune in stride.  There is nothing to lose center over. The pull of over exuberance or deflation has evaporated. We are in Yes Living now.

It is quite freeing to ask for something and receive it in full, on Spirit or the Universe’s timeline.  When we receive what we requested, the tendency is to keep asking for the next things our hearts desire. Love, and Life, and our own Soul, respond.

Ask – Presence with each changing Moment – Receive – Acknowledge — Ask

As we acclimate to the 5th and Higher Dimensions, we operate at a new cloud level, where the vista is wider, more flowing and connected. We do not have to concern ourselves with the tedium we were used to dealing with in 3D. We live with greater stride, confidence, and surety.

Please share in the comments a recent experience of yours in having a request met, full and complete.

 

 

 

 

Raising Frequencies to Allow for Multidimensional Creating

When I was growing up, my mother and maternal grandmother used to say, “The Lord will provide.”  In the consciousness shift to 5D and beyond, we seem to transcend the concept of a “Lord” to that of an active, co-creating Universe, free of hierarchy, where no one lords over us, for good or not so good.

Mass movements dismantle hierarchy. The Civil Rights Movement in the 60’s started the dissolve of the hierarchy of race, and the Flower Power of the same era started the dissolve of the hierarchy of corporate capitalism. These collective awakenings brought direct experience of personal sovereignty and human equality. We recognized freedoms and our interrelatedness. The 1970s and 80s brought revitalized interest in Native American Spirituality, reminding us all creatures are our relations, animal, plant, mountain, ocean, sky, human; All My Relations.

Fast forward to the Information Age when our entire planet is connected wirelessly and folks at far distances communicate instantaneously. Hierarchy of place, dismantled.

Other mass movements also reflect the dissolution of hierarchy. People take power back from doctors as they research their options, tune into themselves, and decide personal health care choices based on their own sovereignty. As I wrote in last week’s post, no one knows better than us what is the best for us.

While it still seems to be a man’s world, progress is made in gender equality. Men are in the delivery room now, in contrast to their absent role in the birthing process decades ago. That some men change diapers, feed babies and are active parents, is a great equalizer in gender hierarchy. Gender fluidity is another equalizer.

We also see the dissolution of hierarchy between humans and animals. People go out of their way, even risking their lives, to save animals. There is mass outrage when remnants of trophy consciousness are reported.  Animals perform miraculous interventions that save human lives.

Like stepping stones, these mass events that diminish hierarchy and demonstrate equality lead us to direct experience of worthiness, and Divinity.

The embodiment of sovereign power leads us to awareness that we co-create our own reality. We are no longer helpless victims, at the mercy of a hierarchical figure lording over us. We are it.  We are actively linked to the co-creative, materializing forces that craft our lives.

Co-creation does not force mind over matter. The more conscious we are, the more fluid and responsive we are with the co-creative forces, the more our lives reflect materialized desires.

And this is my place of struggle now, in raising frequencies to allow for this level of multidimensional creating. It is one thing to let go of hierarchy; it is another thing to be flapping in the wind without a Mother.

We do not create in a vacuum.  We speak our truth to ourselves consciously; the truth of what we long for and want. In expressing to ourselves, we also express to the Universe. We monitor negative self-talk and choose words with care, as we know what we say manifests.

I am aware of having to stretch up and out to this new consciousness that is grounded in direct experience of being loved by an animate Universe who cares, listens and responds to requests.

My challenge on this path is releasing the habituated patterning of being a Motherless Child. Yes, I had a mother in this life, and like many, my mother’s formative life experiences led to the motherless child experience.

My awareness now is of letting go of the Lone Wolf persona and letting in Love. A spiritual teacher once said to me, “You need to have an experience of a Mother that you can trust.” She led me to the Earth Mother, and now, I lead myself to the Living, Loving Cosmos Mother.

A Mothered Child no longer hides what she wants, longs for, knows as Truth. An adult mothered child is self-responsible within a Universe that hears, responds and Loves back.  Our Cosmic Mother is multidimensional with access to the timeless realm of All Possibility. Hierarchy is gone; inclusion is here. No one, no part left out. We wake to our Power, our Sovereignty and our living relationship with a co-creating Field.

Our rational minds cannot understand our co-creating Field; our Souls know. When we surrender the lead of our mind to the lead of our Soul and when we combine our Soul Consciousness with the Consciousness of the Universe, how can we not create what is good and holy and remarkably ours to do and be and have?

When we surrender the false concept of hierarchy and claim stand-up alliance with a responsive, creating Universe, how can we not create and Be what it is ours to create and Be?

A mothered child knows that she is loved. She has the freedom to be. We are all Mothered by this Divine Mother, our Earth and the SupraMother beyond Her, the Cosmos. I suspect it takes a while to absorb this Love, to repattern the Motherless Child experiences with Mothered Child experiences.

This is the part we deal with now, in this Frequency Upgrade; this direct experience of being Love and Loved within a Loving Universe. 

(Current political scenes reflect the death throes of hierarchy. It is a mess out there. However, what we feed with our attention, grows. If we choose to be distracted by the external chaos to the determent of our own sovereignty, that is a choice. 

One’s own Heart and Soul is where accountability rests. If you are called from within to be an active part of the Resistance, may you find your way to Yes.  If your role is to listen to the deepest beat of the Earth/Cosmos through silence and bearing witness, may you find your way to that, too. Whatever your role in this current chaos, may you find your way and not abandon yourself in the process.)

Opening to Receive: 5 Tips to Get to Yes

When someone compliments you,  do you accept, wide open, with no questioning? Or, do pre-conditioned responses of resistance come into play? Are you even keel with giving and receiving, or are you always  giving?  Life within a  responsive Universe requires that we live in dynamic equilibrium with both  giving and receiving.

In last week’s post, I wrote how the split between body and mind is lessening and use of intuition is increasing. For these great changes to happen though, we must be open to receive. Issues of false pride and subscribing to hierarchy are no longer functional. In hierarchy’s place is awareness of our own supreme sovereignty. That message, delivered Ages ago, the Kingdom of Heaven is Within” reflects present reality.

As I wrote last week, we are moving toward the direct experience of Oneness. Going through life blocking the reality that we are part of, that we belong, results in tremendous waste and keeps us from receiving what is ours to receive.

If receiving remains a challenge, here are five suggestions to consider for opening to the wild, raw, living current of Life that says Yes.

  1. Consider that being closed to receiving is an adaptive response. Notice how a baby responds to a face reflecting unconditional love: there is joy, delight, openness, receptivity! Practice receiving at that infant pleasure level next time someone praises you.

 

  1. Allowing unconditional love involves trust. If you feel there is no one whom you can trust, go to nature. Beam in the spectacle of night sky, or a vibrant-with-life tree, or a serenading bird or the breathtaking colours of sunrise and sunset. Allow yourself to receive natural beauty as mirror reflection of you.

 

  1. Say Yes when your Soul nudges you to say Yes. You will know when a No is appropriate, however, consciously stretch to Yes when No feels false or habitual. This Amazon page lists books related to saying yes.

 

  1. Using a mirror, look yourself in the eye and applaud yourself!  This practice, from Spring Forest Qigong,  opens the heart meridian. Do try this and note how it feels!

 

  1. Consider that you may be adept at opening to receive and that the challenge is Opening to Be Received.

 

During eons of life in 3rd Dimension, many of us had to hide. Intuitives, healers, wise women and men, we could not openly show who we are.  We can be who we are now and opening to be received might represent a new chapter in living the truth that we are part of and do belong. Your gifts, talents, wisdom are a crucial part of our collective unfolding into 5D.

If opening to be received is part of your challenge, start small and stay consistent with sharing who you are and what is yours to give. Trust that the opening to fulfillment is yours and receive it. Pay attention to how your sensate body guides and directs you. Open to receive that inner wisdom, and you will find your way to opening to be received.

Blessing wishes for all giving and receiving

 

The Death of Duality

Duality is dying. It might not seem so as we witness the divisiveness within first nation politics. Yet, duality, with its sense of separation, is dissolving. The Resistance Movement, whether we are activists or not, unites us and helps lift the veil of delusion. We are no longer fooled into accepting that we are separate beings. That fiction is no longer fact.

Through the global resistance movement, we embody the experience of Oneness and live interconnectedness. While the transition from duality into Oneness is not pretty, it is authentic. This same shift from duality into harmonic wholeness is true within our personal experience, as well.

We are no longer separate mind and body, we are bodymind. And notice which comes first in that word! The divisive split of spirit from matter, mind from body, consciousness from soul, human from nature, animal from human, has dissolved for many and is dissolving for many others. We are freer, now, to live an intuitive life, a life that is directed by an inner knowing of interconnectedness with all that is. Living an Intuitive Life means that we feel our truth, own it, and live it.

Living the Intuitive Life is the tagline for my blog because this is core to my beingness, my purpose on Earth. Ignoring intuition, this living channel of Field support, feels like a mortal wound and it seems to take a lifetime, or more, to keep this channel open.

A story in point: The other day I had errands that would have taken me to five different neighborhoods.  I could not possibly make all those trips in one afternoon. As I was deliberating a choice, my intuition slid in with the question, “What would it be like to live intuitively?”  Yes, this is the question my intuition, an information source I have actively been connecting with for decades, had to come and gently ask.

A memory of example also slipped into consciousness. A friend needed a new tablecloth for a special event. Rather than go here, there and everywhere in search of THE tablecloth, she asked her intuition. It responded, she listened and on one trip she found the tablecloth she wanted.

When we release mental rigidity, and the pushing, forcing, and insisting that comes with it, and we open, instead, to a soft flow of surrender within a Field that wants to inform us, life becomes effortless. Some moments are bumpier than others, however, if we relax into All is Well, we can trust the gift and the growth of a challenging experience, We can relax, allow, and receive.

This surrender to an informing Field is not self-abandonment.  It is an embodiment of consciousness that fuses body, mind, sensate experience, Soul and the living, informing Field, into Presence. Through this knowing presence, we are longer duped and disturbed by a cognitive dissonance that comes from not living our own wisdom and Oneness, our own intuition.

How does it feel to have the split between mind and body lessen in your daily life? How does it feel to trust your intuition more fully? Are you practicing on smaller, every day choices, such as holding an orange while grocery shopping, and asking “Does this have life for me?”  This is how we start living an intuitive life; we start small, in everyday matters, and we build from there.

One way to build relationship with intuition is to put one hand on the middle of your chest and the other hand on your lower abdomen; enjoy deep exhalations, relax, trust that Life is a Yes and that you are shapeshifting through challenges, then ask your intuition what you long to know.

Non Linear Living, Now!

brush-1317902_1280-colourful-wave-particle

The irony brings on a belly laugh.

One year ago, I wrote a blog post about no longer using reminder lists. I had been in the process of not making lists for three years  by the time I wrote that post. Now, one year later, a stubborn mindset wants to revisit the issue. Habits die hard and the mind continues to think it knows best.

In this season of shift, multiple streams call for attention. The imperative to choose is forceful and the mind gets scared that it cannot keep up, or choose well. Within this heart pounding experience, I considered returning to making lists.

Ah, the pain of it.  Feeling frantic and not resourceful, the mind tries to revert to old ways. Whether to make a list or not might read trivial and inconsequential; however, my direct experience of this choice point is that it is crucial.

Making a list harms me because it takes me out of the wave particle flow of life and back into linear confinement of self within time and space. It is challenging to be in the new 5D, multidimensional experience. We have been living in the 3rd Dimensional Consciousness for thousands of years and the old ways of how we got by are deeply ingrained in thoughts, experiences and programmed responses.

This new way is open and there are no teachers or guides or safety nets other than our own deep, true inner knowing.  3D consciousness might not know what is going on, however, our multidimensional consciousness, informed through sensate experiences within a living, informing Field, does know and offers guidance and direction out of fear and into Light.

I came very close to writing a list before my consciousness floated in with awareness that making a list is a linear way and, right now, that does not represent optimal functioning in this new multidimensional consciousness.

universe-1566161_1280-wave-particle-blue

In this new way, all is possible, in any moment. Making a list inhibits all possibility, because we limit our focus to the way our minds outlined. I am talking about all lists, from grocery lists to work to-do lists to life goal lists.

Yes, we still identify and name what we want, however, we do not limit it. “This or something better” is a helpful phrase to add on to anything we have identified that we want.  That phrase keeps it open to all possibility and honours the mechanics of us working with a knowing, loving Living Field of co-creation.

What is the worst that can happen if you forget to buy something from the grocery store because you did not use a list?  Maybe another trip back to the store at another time and who knows the connection that can happen when you make that second trip?

People with symptoms of memory loss do need to employ lists. We use all that we can to help ourselves.  Yet, others, who rely on lists, out of habit in contrast to need, might be surprised by the freedom that comes from not using lists.

To live free of lists requires trust in one’s self. It requires trust in a living Universe, or Spirit, or Field, whatever the name. It requires trust in one’s self within this living Field.

And that is the difference, in this new time we are aware that we are connected, vitally to our own Knowing, to our informing Cosmos, and to the morphic Field of living intelligence and all that is animate – humans, animals, plants, flowers, trees, crystals, rocks, stones, stars, rainbows, clouds, waters, fire, earth, winds.

All that has life has intelligence and communicates through this pulsing living Field in which we anchor ourselves.  The upright, steadfast anchoring of past has become a swirling, open, fluid, colourful anchoring filled with surprise, support and fulfillment.

Living a linear life will not get us the fulfillment our hearts and souls want. The past is gone. We are free-floating within all possibility now and making a list restricts the full capacity of listening, feeling, choosing within each fresh moment.

What needs to happen for you to consider releasing reliance on making lists? Please share in the comments below.

Blessed Be, in a Joyous 2017

The Full Moon’s Secret

 processing-1737812_1280-saluting-full-moon

I have worked with the Full Moon in many ways, including dancing in wild celebration with a group, on a beach with a campfire; in meditative circles where we plundered in to feel the one root beneath all duality; in women’s talking and drumming circles, in a plaintive, lamenting wail for Sacred Union; immersed in cozy blankets, a steaming cup of herbal tea and books of poetry, Rumi, David Whyte, Mary Oliver.

My current, favorite way to work with our beloved, Sacred, Beaming Full Moon Light is to recognize its primal role as turning point between the in/out rhythm of life.  There is an in and out phase to everything, from our birth to our death, from our night to our day, from each in breath to each out breath.  These cycles, and so many more, have a cyclic span determined by the breadth of their circumference; some cycles are wider, and therefore, take longer, than other circles. The rhythmic pattern of a cycle, though, one half activity and the other half rest, is always the same.

The more complex our world gets; the more the basics help stabilize. That is why I go back, eons, perhaps, to remember, acknowledge and feel this simple in/out rhythm that our Moon models for us each month.  From New to Full Moon we are in active mode.  From Full to the end of the cycle, the Balsamic Moon, we are in rest mode.

lunar-eclipse-1192664_1280

Perhaps you are thinking, “Ridiculous, who could live like this?” Please consider that this is how our planet lives.  This is how our planet lives in relation to its place in the cosmos. This is how our Moon has modeled timing for us since the beginning of human life on earth. This is how our bodies live, whether we bring consciousness to this rhythm or not.

Yes, we are in a modern world that lives by 24/7 access to everything that we want.  However, our Moon mirrors this secret – the repeating pattern of activity and rest inherent in all the cycles, and cycles are the nature of life.

It is my operating premise that when we align with this core rhythm, as reflected by the fluid flow of Moon Light, we help ourselves root within the sustaining rhythm of life. To me, this is the ultimate in self-care, to feel and align our rhythmic body with the rhythmic body of cosmos, in sync and on time.

We have come a long way from consciously aligning with this core rhythm.  Some of us, perhaps you, and me, do live this alignment because not doing so throws us off kilter, spinning with no reliable tether.  The Moon and her fluid flow of Light does anchor us in the cyclic pattern of being, releasing and becoming.

What this means in practical terms is that you start recognizing, within your body, the surging build energy from New to Full Moon, and the dissipating, dissolving energy in the last half of the Moon’s cycle. We gather and build in the first half and reflect, process, disseminate and integrate in the last half.

Once we readmit this basic rhythm into sensate awareness, our body, our Divine Intelligence, our Intuition, our activated link with a living, loving Cosmic Field, guides us to next steps.

If you are already living this alignment, please let me know. If living like this sparks a compelling invitation within you, please let me know. It is time to call a Moon and Her Secrets circle together.

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.

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!
