Current Events – Portal 6.24-6.27

una8844bpA “Mineral” is a coherent Crystal composed of specific Elements and Ions (not molecules – Crystals are made up of repeating Ionic structures, while molecules are discrete units).  A “Stone” is a combination of Minerals.  When Minerals frequently pair up in certain ways, the Stone gets a name.  Unakite is a Stone, comprised of green Epidote (a simple Calcium-Aluminum-Iron Silicate Hydroxide) and pink Feldspar (a complex Potassium-Sodium-Aluminum Silicate).  Unakite symbolizes Partnership, as it’s one of the few stones that combines the two Fifth-Chakra (Heart) colors, green and pink.  We’re working in this Portal with Partnership between our Ego and our Soul.

Plus a week or so on either side.  This shouldn’t be a big deal.  If we’ve been dragging our feet on our Yintegrity work, and on noticing and shifting our dysfunctional Patterns, though, it could  get ugly.

Mars Opposes Uranus at 1am PDT June 25.  Just Mars (which operates more on the mundane level so we only consider it when it’s dancing with The Bigs), just an Opposition (which usually only creates problems for those still stuck in Either/Or), and it’s just the Confidence-Builder phase (third pass of three), so not a biggie.

But how was April for you?  If you didn’t take Responsibility for any hassles then, you have the opportunity now to make up for it.

Life is like assembling a piece of Ikea furniture.  If we get sloppy on step 17, step 26 will be a killer.  Each one of these astroevents is a step in assembling a Lifetime, but a Lifetime is a zillion times more multidimensional than an Ikea armoire.  Ignore one step, and the others just get more and more complicated and confusing.  The April step (and the December step before that) was about

How vigorously we were willing to defend our True Self

How did we do?  Did we pass the test?  We find out in this Portal. 

  • If we did a decent job in April, we’ll get another opportunity to practice, and this time we’ll ace it.  We’ll know exactly what to do when Mom says that again or the boss does that again.  And we’ll never fret about this sort of threat to our Identity again. 

That’s why we call this the Confidence-Builder stage.

  • If we took the easy way out in December and April and Gave Away our Power again, well, we’ll still get another opportunity to practice defending our True Self, it just won’t be so easy.  We’ll still be trying to be “nice” and wavering about being honest.  Or we could just blow up, as the internal pressure to finally Claim our Power, and the programmed need to avoid rocking the boat, meet in a 120-kph internal head-on.

Remember, Power is never given, that’s an oxymoron.  Power is always taken

The adjectival form of Power is Politics.  If our only way to play Politics is to play nice, we’ll get stabbed in the back more often than not.  To play Win-Win, we have to constantly assess whether our Mirror (ie, the Other person or party) is playing Win-Win too.  Because if we’re playing Win-Win and they’re playing Win-Lose, we Lose hands down.

A synonym for Power is Ego.  Ego’s job is to keep us alive and well.  It’s a noble calling.  In some cases Losing at Politics is an Ego Death.  Ego Death is good if you’re Conscious that you’re molting, but very painful if you aren’t – and usually painful even if you are Conscious.  So I’m not against Ego Death by any means, just recommending less painful alternatives.  Someone has to defend your True Self, and if it ain’t you, it ain’t nobody – everyone else is in the same pickle.  How you Respond to Ego Death is critical to the shape of the new Ego you’ll be creating out of the ashes of the old one.

This is another case where, if we’ve repressed an important facet of our Self, or if we’ve been programmed to be someone that we really aren’t, then when we move to Recover our repressed Skill or True Self, we have to start over at the age where we left off.  That’s intimidating, because we don’t want to act six years old at work, or turn three years old when we need to ask for Respect.  But it has to be done, or future archeologists will puzzle over our deformed fossil.  Practicing in non-critical situations is beneficial – act out a scenario with a friend instead of your boss or your partner. 

And Jupiter T-Squares the Nodes at 3am PDT June 27.  This is a one-shot event, but it’ll trigger the same April issues because our last big Jupiter mash-up was the very close  April Uranus-Pluto-Jupiter-Mars Grand Cross, and because claiming our True Self is nothing if not an adventure in Letting Go of our Karma and realigning our Identity and our Mission.

No matter how well we did in April, we can expect whatever remains of our dysfunctional Patterns to be up in our face during this Portal, as well as pressure to move toward our Deepest Desires.  When something important doesn’t work and it’s deja vu all over again, by all means Pay Attention enough to tentatively Identify the Pattern so you can PIAVA what you Want instead.  But forget the Analysis. 

Analysis does not work on a Square.  Analysis is reductive, and a Square must be addressed holistically.

Whenever you catch your mind crawling over the problem, thank it for trying to help and put it to work on a game of Sudoku.  Besides being unpleasant, trying to think your way out of a Karmic dilemma will just make it worse.

What would you have Wanted out of the situation?

PIAVA that directly, then make sure you Change the Subject.  Mark your calendar so you can revisit the problem in a couple of days, and examine what happened between your PIAVA and this later review.

If you want to speed this process up, use Theta Healing.

That website is always way too busy.  Just buy the book, Theta Healing: Introducing an Extraordinary Energy Healing Modality by Vianna Stibal.  I’m going to butcher the process here, so don’t blame Vianna!

I’ll give you a really bastardized short form of the process here, but this is an unpainted child’s tricycle compared to the chauffered red Rolls Royce in Vianna’s book. 

  • Wait till you haven’t had any alcohol in a half-day or so, you’re well-rested, and feeling pretty alert
  • Drink a glass of Water
  • Ground yourself (imagine a cable running from the base of your spine to the center of the Earth)
  • Close your eyes
  • Roll your eyes upward and keep them there
  • Then say to yourself, “Great Spirit [or God/Goddess or whomever works for you], Creator of All That Is, I Command XXX.”
    • Where “XXX” is what you Want
    • Add “lovingly and gently” if you’re trepidatious
    • Add “rapidly and completely” if it’s Life-and-Ego-Death important
  • “It is done, it is done, it is done.  Thank you.”
  • Pause a moment while the dust settles
  • Then say, “Show me.”
    • What you’ll be shown is how well it worked, or what else might need to be Commanded to get it done

If this super-simplified version works at all for you, then by all means get Vianna’s book or CDs and explore the method further.  It if doesn’t work for you, like I say, don’t blame Vianna – you need the book even more.  This is a very powerful incantation.  This is why Command, along with of course Wonder – as in Curiosity – have been added as silent members of PIAVA.

The difference between our Karma and the Habits that hide our True Self is the same as the difference between a blue car and a car that’s blue.  Same with the difference between finding our Mission in the Lifetime, Following Our Joy, Recovering our True Self, and Living in Yintegrity.  It’s all one Work.  Sometimes our Karma is attached with glue, sometimes nails, sometimes screws, sometimes welded.  So when one tool doesn’t work, we try another.

Remember that here after the End of Time, Karma is dead.  The Illusion of Karma is alive and well, because Karma is after all nothing but Inertia, and we’ve been dancing with this Inertia for a long time. 

Karma is often translated as The Law of Cause and Effect.  But we know Cause and Effect requires Linear Time, because by that Law Cause must come first.  And we also know Linear Time is an Illusion, since All There Is Is Now.  Even Einstein couldn’t find any reason why Time couldn’t run backward.  Causean Defect is so deep in our (Western) heritage that it’s very difficult to even conceive of a Universe operating by different rules.

Jung postulated what he called the Principle of Association as an alternative to Cause and Effect.  He was contemplating a situation where a man was killed in an accident while the man was at work, and at the moment he was killed, a large swarm of Crows landed on the roof of his house (he didn’t work at home).  We have to stand on our heads to make that anecdote fit into Cause and Effect.

But what it’s easy to imagine from that story, is that there is a larger process going on than our Awareness typically encompasses.  A Mystery.  Like the sudden sharp downpour, Lightning, and loud clap of Thunder during my mother’s funeral.  Cause and Effect (which is an entirely Intellectual process, happening in the mind of the observer, not in Reality) is used as a manipulation to keep us out of Mystery, to keep us away from Spirit.  Put Cause and Effect together with Retribution, and you have a powerful way to keep peasants “in their place” and separate Egos from Souls.

To break free of Karmic Inertia we only need one thing – to remember that it’s a Paper Tiger.  Once you turn around and face your Sisiutl, you’ll see how the Monster destroys itself.  But we’re so used to expecting horror that we’re loathe to turn around.

Once we Recover the Abandoned Herstorical Child (from this Lifetime or another) that has become our Sisiutl, then we start our journey to teach age-appropriate Skills to this Child.  That can be daunting.  But once we remember that Life is on our side, we’ll remember that this Learning process goes remarkably quickly.  From the threshold it seems huge.  But it’s only the first step that’s intimidating, the rest is Grace, as we Integrate into Bliss.

A footnote: The Saturn-Chiron Trine is parallel to the Mars-Uranus Opposition.  It’s not a rectangle, it’s a trapezoid or trapezium.  Otherwise, it’s similar to the Box Configurations we’ve been discussing.  Except the “X” it creates aren’t Oppositions, but Quincunxes.  As Box Configurations are driven by the Oppositions, this sort of trapezium would be driven by the Quincunxes – Mars-Chiron and Saturn-Uranus…

We’d be ahead to encourage our Curiosity about how Action relates to Miracles (which might have something to do with the process appearing to be hard but ending up to be really easy), and encourage our Curiosity about what sorts of Magic might happen if we really did Follow Our Joy.
