Phew. Finished off that onerous bit of personal business, now back to “work.”
While I flesh out the rest of *Lots* Going On 1, here’s an excellent summary of it all, just said a little differently that I would have – and more Power to ’em. It starts out…
“Do not expect anything to continue as you have known it in the past. This is because the material world you are familiar with was formed from the energy of beliefs that no longer exist. Be open to and embrace change instead of resisting it, for nothing real is ever lost and ideas based in truth (reality) will always reappear in new and higher forms of expression when needed.”

The post is actually from http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html , but they use a blog template that doesn’t allow “deep linking” (linking to a specific blog post), so I’ve linked to Pauline’s reblog of it. And with thanks to Eliza at https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ for the original tip.
Here’s part of another totally Timely page from onenessofall.com …
“Self-love is the ability to acknowledge, accept, and respect the un-desirable parts of one’s self just as much as the desirable ones from a place of non-resistance. It is the recognition that these facets of self are who you are at this time. Try to recognize the personal qualities you wish to eliminate as old habits developed over lifetimes and manifesting out of cellular memory from a less evolved time. They have no real substance other than the power you endow them with and can serve as tools alerting you to lingering concepts and beliefs in need of examination.”

The Arcturians, through Marilyn ( https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ ), talk about one of our favorite topics, Karma as Inertia…
Justice “often manifests though what the metaphysical world calls Karma, which is a balancing of energies and not the punishment or revenge that many believe it to be. Karma is the experiencing of energy formed and held through ignorance by an individual, and often carried over lifetimes until the person is spiritually ready to experience and learn from their creations. Karma has been a part of every souls’ learning journey–up to now. Karma becomes irrelevant once you have evolved beyond that state of consciousness. Let go of any concepts about karmic retribution you may still hold for yourself, for you are now able to clear, balance, and resolve issues on a higher level, through your attained consciousness of truth.”
My usual approach is to assume that the most difficult part of Letting Go of Karma (which we variously refer to as Patterns, Habits, Archetypes, Unconscious Beliefs, etc) is what we call Noticing. In general, we don’t change an Unconscious Pattern till we bring it into Consciousness – till we Notice the original Pattern in ourselves. In my experience, Changing a Pattern once we Notice it is a lot easier than Noticing for the first time. And of course we can always PIAVA Changes.
However, as I’m reading the intriguing book by Gretchen Rubin called Better than Before, about Changing Habits, I realize (Notice?) that some of the distinctions and techniques she talks about could be very useful to anyone who has been trying to Consciously Change a Pattern and having difficulty making it stick. For instance, she points out that for some, Abstinence works much better than Moderation, and vice versa for others (pp.136-143).
She talks about the possible benefits of Scheduling, with the notion that once you’ve Scheduled Time for something, you’ve given yourself permission to NOT do it when it’s not Scheduled. Johnny Cash’s To-Do List (p.86) included a Time slot for “Worry”, opening the possibility that the rest of his day could be spent more in the Present Moment. In these max-Change, Ego-Deathful, high-Anxiety Times that trick could be very useful.
On her Lightning Bolt strategy (sudden spontaneous Change), she says it’s…
“A highly effective strategy, but unfortunately it’s practically impossible to invoke on command. Unlike all the other strategies, it’s not a strategy we can decide to follow; it’s something that happens to us” (pp.122-3).
With our knowledge of the Seventh Harmonic and the Mjolnir, we actually know when it’s likely to occur – such as right now – and we can precisely time and target our PIAVAs accordingly, if we can avoid Temptations to Judge.
The Jupiter (Expansion) Septile (Seventh Harmonic – Timing) Yod (Admonition to Pay Attention!), based off the Septile from Ceres (Sustainability or Making Permanent) to the Conjunction between Neptune (The Unconscious) and the South Node (Karmic Patterns), persists for several more days, and Jupiter is Initiating Mercury (mind, Communication), which should make it much easier to bring matters into Consciousness, with the caveat that Mercury is a Trickster that can easily stick us into Either/Or and Judgment.
The 7 Libra Degree of the Jupiter-Mercury Initiation is a chuckle – “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks: The need to face the antagonism of ‘powers of darkness’ as one attempts to feed the mind of as yet helpless and frightened apprentices.“
It would be timely to differentiate Judgment from Discretion. In simple terms, Judgment separates the “good” from the “bad,” while Discretion Chooses what’s more preferred over what’s less preferred. In situations where Unconscious Judgment is involved, the distinction can be fuzzy. One way to explore Unconscious Judgment might be to ask yourself how comfortable you’d be with the less preferred if the more preferred wasn’t available.
