Levels and Perspectives

February 20, 2017

I don’t think we’ve emphasized this Perspective recently, but it’s fundamental, so worth repeating.  This culture commonly Perceives Mentality, Emotionality, Spirituality, and Physicality as different Levels or Departments of Experience.  We don’t mean to imply that these are the only Departments – at the very least we need to add Energy, for instance.

Simply put, these are not different Levels or Departments.  They’re different Perspectives on our Unitary Experience of being in a Physical Body.

Imagine that you’re standing on a Ridge, waving at the camera.  You’ll look different…

  • to an observer a few feet in front of you
  • to an an observer several yards behind you
  • to an observer at the top of the Peak
  • to an observer falling off the Ridge while stepping back a few feet so they can capture your profile

Experience is One Unified Thing.  It’s only a mental game to try to reduce it into separate “components.”  Body, Spirit, Emotion, Mind, and Energy are just different snapshots of the same One Thing, seen from different angles.

We quoted Stephen Levine recently, where he was reading the Emotional state of his Inner Child by Attending to the Physical Sensations in his Body.  You’ve undoubtedly heard Stories about Physical-Healing “Miracles” perpetrated through the Spiritual or Dietary Perspectives – “Spontaneous Remissions” as the Scienteriffic types have to call it to preserve their precious Reductive Worldview and prevent Cognitive Dissonance.  Dr. Kim (http://drkimderamo.com/) talks about the crossover between Perspectives (fka Levels) all the time.  

Donna Eden and David Feinstein (http://www.innersource.net/) have been teaching and writing about this for decades.  If you haven’t had experiences where you’ve, just as a for-instance, resolved Emotional Overwhelm by Tapping on Energy Meridians on the Body, you haven’t “Tried It on Everything” (http://www.thetappingsolution.com/) yet.

Here’s an excerpt from a Channeling where Daniel Scranton talks about this…

“You then move past the emotional awakening and into the energetic awakening.  The energetic awakening is often felt as strange occurrences in your bodies.  It is also something that you sense.  It is awakening to your empathic nature.  It is an awakening of the consciousness that you are and that you use to navigate through this reality.

“And then you have your physical awakening, which can be the most troubling of all the awakenings, because you have been taught that when this, that or the other thing happens to your physical body, it means you are on a gradual decline.  It may mean that you need surgery or pills to cure it.  This is what you have been told, but it is not the truth.  It is not a truth that you need to accept.

“So when you have your ascension symptoms in your physical body, that is a test of your faith.  It’s not a test that you have to pass, but rather, it’s an opportunity for you to take all that you have learned in your previous awakenings and apply it to your experience of your physical body.  And when you do this, you can move through the physical awakening without needing to subject yourselves to some of what the health care professionals would have you subject yourselves to.

“You always have the option of working energetically, emotionally, and with your thoughts to work through the physical experiences that you have of awakening.  If you see them as experiences and as sensations, rather than as symptoms of a larger problem, you will be well on your way to releasing them and to being fully in your bodies, embracing your bodies, and navigating with your bodies to the fifth dimension.”

Definitely read the full Channeling, as Daniel includes a Gift for you in it…

Reanimating the Planet – and Cables

February 19, 2017

Without considering the context, most web designers these days recommend prohibiting what’s called “deep linking,” where you link directly to a page deep within a website.  Instead they allow only linking to a website’s home page, forcing you to search – too often in vain – for the page you want.  The reason they do this, is to get you to stumble onto other pages of interest, hoping to sell you more via “impulse buying.”  Recommending this for websites that aren’t selling anything is simply stupid.  Yet time and again I’ve seem web “designers” follow their textbooks and do this, and their clients out of naïveté follow their advice.

I don’t know whether http://www.jeshua.net/ got and took this advice, but the website doesn’t allow deep linking.  Fortunately there are transcribers who copy this material into deep-linkable websites such as…

https://eraoflight.com/2017/02/15/the-earth-body-and-soul/#more-22404

Though they don’t always make it very clear that the material isn’t theirs.  On this page, “Pamela Kribbe channels Earth” in a powerful Meditation…

I am the voice of the Earth.  I carry you in my body.  The planet on which you live and walk is my body, the expression of my soul.  You are welcome here because you are part of my body.  Your body is part of me, made of earthly matter.  Be very aware of the cells in your body, which are very small, independent entities that know exactly what they are supposed to do.  They work toward balance and harmony and cooperation in your body.

“Imagine that you are present as a brilliant sun in your body.  Your light is not of the Earth; you come from the cosmos.  You are a living soul who is able to take on various forms and now you are present in an earthly form.  Imagine that the light of your soul radiates in the center of your body, the center close to your heart.  See a light burning there and remember who you are: you are aeons old.  You have had many lives; you are not here for the first time.

Remember who you are!  Know that you are independent of this body, of this life, and of the society around you.  You have come here to bring something new, something unique, something not quite understood by those around you.  It takes courage and daring to bring in what is new, because new things cause resistance.  That is why it is so important to remember who you are: your freedom, your independence.  Only then can you really be yourself in this reality and spread your light.

“I now ask you, from that which is your heart, to connect the light of your soul with all your body cells, which have their own individual consciousness, yet which are part of me, the Earth.  Imagine that the light of your heart, your soul, joins to the consciousness of all your body cells.  Your light shines into all your cells, and your cells respond with joy.  This is what they want – they want to be inspired by you!  This is their goal; this is their function.

“Maybe you think that the aim of your body cells is simply to maintain your body so it can function and survive; and on some level, that is true, but not on the deepest level.  Your highest purpose here on Earth is to provide an instrument through which your soul can manifest itself; that is what your body is for.  So connecting your soul with your body awareness is extremely important.  Your entire body is undergoing a transformation that cannot be explained on a material level.

“Now imagine that the light from your divine core spreads slowly from your heart and touches all your cells in a tender way: in your chest and shoulders, and throughout your neck and throat.  Then allow all the cells in your head to be touched by your soul’s energy and to take it in so they are able to get direction and guidance from the divine Source.  Allow your soul’s energy, the light of your heart, to then stream through your solar plexus, your belly, and down through your abdomen, and feel for a moment the center of your abdomen.  There may be old emotions still there, or resistances against life that make it difficult to allow in the light of your soul: ‘Is this safe?  May I really be here with my unique energy, my light?’

“See if your soul’s light can penetrate into your stomach, your tailbone, your pelvis.  If you feel places there that offer resistance, that do not allow in the light, just observe that happening and do not force anything.  Just see if there is a dark spot or a tense place somewhere in your body where the energy is somewhat constricted and concealed.  With a very accepting and open gaze, concentrate your attention on that spot of heaviness.  Your consciousness is very soft and pliable, and as a soft breeze, surround that spot with your attention.

“Inside that blocked energy, there is life that has been hidden away for a variety of reasons.  Encourage that life to make itself known to you.  Ask the question: ‘Who are you?  Don’t be afraid of me, show yourself.’  See if something appears to you: an image, a symbol; it can also be an animal or a human being, or maybe a child.  Everything that is blocked and hidden in a person wants out, wants to be free; but it is afraid, which is why it is hiding at times.  To be able to reach it, you need not force anything; it is enough to be gently present and to listen.  To not want to change anything, to not wish to get rid of this part, is the most helpful approach.

“So calmly see or sense what wants to reveal itself from that dark part. Imagine that you reach out your hand to what appears and you reassure it by telling it: ‘You are good; you are allowed to be who you really are.’  You welcome this part of yourself by taking responsibility for your energy, by promising that you will work with it.  Because in all this clogged and blocked energy there is also a strength, a capability that belongs to you.  It should never be the intention only to make a blockage or a problem disappear.  It is about transforming and releasing old energies, and so thoroughly that the core of light within you can join with it.  That is why love is the way, and not struggling with negative energies or problems that are in you, but loving them.

“Finally, let the light of your soul flow all the way down from your pelvis to your thighs and your upper legs, and give especial attention to your knees.  Imagine that the cells of the bones in your knees open up for the light from your heart.  Remember how joyful it can be to live and be active on the Earth, so retrieve those memories of joy.  Then let your light descend farther into your calves and your ankles, and fully into your feet: into your heels, the soles of your feet and your toes.

Entrust the light of your soul to the Earth.  I am here for you; you are welcome in and on me.  You do not have to go it alone.  The more you allow your soul’s light to be here, the more you are protected and carried by your own wisdom and by your connection to me, the Earth.  I salute you from my heart and want to thank you for your presence here and now.”

When I did this Meditation I found it Exhilarating except for several spots of Tension in the back of several Chakras.  When I asked “Who are you?” several Cables from a deceased parent and an old Relationship appeared.  Without reading the Meditation further, I reverted to my old Training and dealt with the Cables using old techniques of carefully working the fishhook-like cable ends out of my back, and handing them back to the virtual figure of the person who put them there.  One of them was easy, the other was difficult because the Cable-installer wasn’t working alone, but as part of a Doctrine or Lineage.

Gurus can seek Power rather than Healing per se for legitimate Healing purposes – for instance, when the Follower’s Challenges are with their Ego.  The Ego is the seat of Power in the Psyche, and in Response to Abuse the Ego may have Vowed Never to Surrender.  Some Gurus specialize in the Power Struggles which result when such a Follower Asks them for Help in working toward their Liberation.  And some “Gurus” of course seek Power for the sake of Power.  It can be difficult to tell the difference, but in general if the Guru Blesses you when you Psychically Intend to Stand as their Equal, it’s a good sign.

Many Gurus establish a Doctrine or Lineage, so their Followers can become Teachers in their stead when they leave the Physical, or so they can spread their Work farther than they could do alone.  Kind of a Spiritual or Pseudo-Spiritual equivalent to “Branding.”  So their Followers can Cable you as an agent for the Guru or the Guru’s supra-personal Lineage – the Guru need no longer be in Physical form.  Those Cables can be trickier to remove, because they were placed by agents for “Professionals,” rather than by Amateurs.  In either case there’s a good chance that the Cables will be put back once you divert your Attention.

In general, Cables are installed as Defensive measures, not installed for Evil Intent.  They are usually set Unconsciously through Insecurity or Parental or Religious “Prerogative,” or all of the above.  So while removing Cables Relentlessly is appropriate, removing them Ruthlessly or Angrily may create backlash.

Then I read more of the Meditation…

To be able to reach it, you need not force anything; it is enough to be gently present and to listen.  To not want to change anything, to not wish to get rid of this part, is the most helpful approach.  “So calmly see or sense what wants to reveal itself from that dark part. Imagine that you reach out your hand to what appears and you reassure it by telling it: ‘You are good; you are allowed to be who you really are.’  You welcome this part of yourself by taking responsibility for your energy, by promising that you will work with it.  

“Because in all this clogged and blocked energy there is also a strength, a capability that belongs to you.  It should never be the intention only to make a blockage or a problem disappear.  It is about transforming and releasing old energies, and so thoroughly that the core of light within you can join with it.  That is why love is the way, and not struggling with negative energies or problems that are in you, but loving them.”

Hmm, sounds like we might be opening to Forbidden Genii – or certainly to the Forbidden, to Limitation.  Excellent advice.  All right!  More Work to be Done!  Hopefully from the Perspective of…

January, Week 3 – Ego Death Week I

January 16, 2017

So, what’s an Ego Death?  Addicts, Born-Again Christians, and Tibetan Buddhists might be the only folks around who really understand what it means.  It happens when we realize that what we’re doing in Life is really not working, and our only option is to “Give Up,” or, more properly, “Give It Over.”  

Remember the old saw about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different outcomes?  When we Realize that we’re doing the same thing over and over again and it’s never accomplished what we’d hoped it would, we’re stopped cold in our tracks, and know that we have to try something new.

Only problem is, do we know how to try something new?  Or will we just try the same old thing under a different disguise.  It helps a lot to understand the concept of Identity, because an Ego Death is a Change of Identity, like when Clark becomes Superman.  

For most of us most of the Time, our Identity is transparent to us, because we’re relating from it rather than to it, as Stephen Levine says (Turning toward the Mystery, p.53).  When we say “I’m [not] one of those people who…” our Identity becomes opaque and observable, but who among us says that as an Observation about our Limits, rather than a boast about our Prejudices?

And worse, how many times a day do we make a Decision or Choice based on an unstated “I’m [not] one of those people who…”?  At least if we go around saying, to ourself or others, “I’m [not] one of those people who…”, we’re Conscious of our Identity, even if we don’t realize it’s a Mask and a Limitation.  

Let’s take a Real-Time example.  Suppose I think “I’m one of those people who writes good blogs.”  And Suppose I start thinking, “This one is hard,” and I have to stop and PIAVA assistance to communicate clearly, because I like that Feeling of finishing a post and thinking to myself, “This is really good!”  Then Suppose what happens next is that I Feel Despair about accomplishing it.

Well, I’m closing in on my Identity as a writer, aren’t I.  You’d think that when I had to Ask for help, my Identity would have already taken a hit.  (Notice that “My Identity” and “I” are synonyms – substitute one for the other in those sentences and see if it’s illustrative of anything.)  No, I/my-Identity long ago Realized that I/my-Identity could do anything a lot better when I/it had help from the Ethers.  But I/it didn’t really Change the Subject, did I/it.  I/it went straight from PIAVAing to Despair.

Of course.  Our poster child for Despair, Chiron, is dancing with Mars (16 January, 10pm PST, 22 Pisces – A new law is promulgated.)  I’ve already had one episode of intense Frustration this evening, where I got to watch how I React to an impassable dead end.

So how do we (ie, I/my-Identity) Change the Subject?  (Notice the editorial we-Identity creeping in there.)  Well, I/my-body have to pee anyway, and I/it want some ice cream, and I/it can use one of my standbys, a hand of solitaire.  Diversions!  That’ll Change the Subject!  Of course, the Sugar has cut me/it off from my/its Feelings.  So, now what.  

Well, I/it can try to Pay Attention.  What was my/its original issue/PIAVA?  Oh yeah, how would I/it Feel if I/it wrote a lousy blog post.  Well, unfortunately for youalls, I/it is not that much of a Perfectionist.  (I/it is Noticing I/my-Cleverness subtly patting me/it on the back for writing this as a narrative.)

Okay, I/it admit it, I’m Feeling Confused.  Are you/your-Identity Feeling Confused too?  Confusion is good, Confusion is the first sign of Growth, right?  Growth in Consciousness isn’t possible without an Ego Death.  We’re like the Snake and Turtle and Crab – our Identity is literally an exoskeleton, and we have to molt it in order to Grow.  So, now, are you perfectly Clear about what an Ego Death is?  

No?  Well, good, because if you were, you wouldn’t have Grown, you’d just have been playing Scrabble with me.  Maybe we’ve talked circles around it long enough to plant seeds into your Intuition, maybe not.  At any rate, besides Learning about our Relationship to Despair and Frustration, this week we’re also going to be Confronting two other Big Ego Deaths.

In the first one, we’re face-fo-face with our Abandoned Genius, and we won’t recognize them unless we’re willing to Embrace a Big Ego Death, aka a Change in Who We Believe Ourselves to “Be,” on a deep level.  

19 January, 1am PST, Ixion (Abandoned Genius) Initiates Juno (the Edges of Consciousness), Sagittarius 26 (“A Flag Bearer”).  Oh my, a Flag is an Identity, isn’t it!

What might this look like?  

Well, we might meet someone we’re intensely Jealous or Envious of.  Someone who has all the glorious Qualities that we’ve always wished we had, and wears them as if they’re Effortless.  Someone Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, and Fabulous.  I Wonder what would happen if we tried to Mirror their admirable Qualities instead of Shying away from them or Feeling Inferior.

We could meet someone we immediately really dislike, and probably not know why.  Whoever suppressed our Genius probably started very early in our Lifetime, before we had developed much of an Identity and Memory, or even before we had collected enough Experience to even detect a difference.  So when we encounter a Mirror of our Programmers, we might simmer internally without knowing why.  So we may imagine that we don’t like them because “they’re one of those people who…”

Or, maybe we’ll meet someone whom we have an intense Desire to Please.  There’s a good chance we’re still Collaborating in the Suppression of our Genius,, and to the extent that’s True, someone who reminds us of our Programmers may seem like someone we need to Please.  Like Unconsciously falling in “love” with our Kidnappers.

So, if our Identity is Paying Attention, we could try, after we find a Safe Space and Time to do it in, Imagining ourself to be the person who Triggered us, and then watching to see what arises.  Even if you detect nothing, you may still have planted a few seeds in your Intuition, to sprout later.

January, Week 2, Middle, Full Moon

January 12, 2017

The Most Important Thing about this first Full Moon of 2017 (12 January, 3:30am PST) is, unequivocally, Recovering our Abandoned Genius.  

Saturn (The Most Important Thing) Conjoins (Merges with) Ixion (Our Abandoned Genius), Juno (the Edges of our Consciousness), and Nemesis (Ego Death) Opposing dwarf planet Chaos, Quincunx to the Full Moon.  This Opposition is the central issue in the Yin Gate (Mystery School, or Learning to Accept Paradox) that the Full Moon forms.  The Full Moon is the other Opposition in the Golden Rectangle (Restoring Natural Harmony) that contains the Yin Gate. 

By our Abandoned Genius I mean the parts of ourself that were Forbidden to us in our Childhood, or that became Forbidden to us when, in the current Lifetime or another, we

Vowed that We’d Never Do That Again 
or 
Vowed that We’d Never Let That Happen to Us Again.

Chances are, what was Forbidden to us in our Childhood, was probably Forbidden because we made one of these two Vows in some earlier Lifetime, and we came into this Lifetime to Clear it – No better way to get something into Consciousness than to have it be Forbidden.  

We just have to have enough Self-Sovereignty, Self-Trust, Courage, and Self-Love to override the Forbidding and Open the (Yin) Gate to these Forbidden “Pleasures.”  We put that in quotes because Desire is a bit of a Trickster.  Here’s Michael Roads’s comment on Desire (email 10 January, http://int.michaelroads.org/ )…

“Yes. Desire is a prison!  An old saying goes like this: That which you most desire shall enslave you in the end.  Very true.  Oddly, the things that we desire hold very little appeal once we have them, but desire continually whets its appetite for more.  We get very attached to both the idea and the subsequent manifestation of our deep desires, yet our attachment to desire invariably has a price of disappointment and dissatisfaction.  Avoid the cycle of perpetual wants, the desire
for this or that.  If you really need it, get it.  There is a big difference between real needs and baseless desires.”

Yet Desire is our Guide to finding our Mission.  Why?  Because by pursuing our Desire we Discover the Curriculum our Soul designed for us in the Lifetime.  The title Michael gives to this piece is “Attachment Is the Lock on the Prison of Desire.”  We have to follow our Desire, but as we do we also have to give up our Attachment to Outcomes.  What was Forbidden was Forbidden for a reason, but not for the reason we were told.  The esoteric purpose was to pique our Desire. so we’d he compelled to investigate fully.

Remember how we described Squares and T-Squares as the sources of our greatest Frustrations and also our greatest Skills?  Because we are compelled to Perfect what is impossible to Perfect, and as a result we have more Experience with it, and Experience with it at more subtle levels, than anyone else.  This is also the nature of Desire.  Even if we Vowed to be good little girls and boys so Daddy wouldn’t beat us and Santa would Bless us, we’ve still worked out that Desire in more, and more subtle, Fantasies than anyone else can ever imagine.  We should at least take a nom de plume and write the novels about it, if we can’t muster the Self-Sovereignty, Self-Trust, Courage, and Self-Love to override the Forbidding.

This is why we refer to Squares as “Mastery through Challenge.”  Our Squares represent usually-unrecognized Mastery.  And there’s an excellent chance the Squares in your natal chart will lead you to at least part of your Forbidden Skills and Abandoned Genius.

The province of Forbidden Skills per se is the South Node (they are hidden under our Held – or Forbidden – Emotions), and Orcus (the Making and Breaking of Vows) Opposes the South Node.

The Full Moon chart gives us a good deal of information about how this Recovery of our Abandoned Genius might work.  First, it will lead us to Limitlessness.  That means that the core of our most Expansive Daydreams is our Abandoned Genius.  It also means that we’ll need to jettison our Limiting Beliefs to get there.

Second, it’s about Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Fears.  Oxymoronic, eh – becoming Conscious of the Unconscious?  No; Paradoxical perhaps, but neither oxy nor moronic; we do it every day.  It’s the nature of Growth in Consciousness.  We don’t Grow Consciousness through Discovery, we Grow it through Differentiation – Differentiating Out what was previously undifferentiated background noise.  

Such as your Fears.  On a Casual basis, you might think that you don’t like Fatigue because when you’re Fatigued you don’t feel Productive.  But, Meditating into it, you might discover that your need to be Productive is really your Fear of Abandonment, Fear that your wicked stepsister won’t give you food if you don’t get your chores done.  Your wicked stepsister died years ago, but you still Feel your Desire to be Productive as a Desire rather than a Fear.  You bring this Fear into Consciousness by Differentiating Desire from Fear.

The central issue of the Yin Gate that endures through the end of January is the Opposition between Sedna-Aletheia (Getting Truthful with ourself about our Fears) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty).  The Golden Rectangle (Restoring Natural Harmony) that contains it is formed by the Opposition between Jupiter-Haumea (Expansive Rebirth) and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Removing our remaining Masks and making their Removal Permanent; access to Memories of the events that caused us to put them on), and the Opposition between the Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis Stellium and dwarf planet Chaos.

Once into Consciousness, use your “You poor Sweetheart…”s and Tapping to Hold them and defuse them.  Don’t let them slip back into the Darkness.  Celebrate them – they will Liberate you.

Third, the Full Moon is all about Letting Go of what no longer serves us – and what has already Died but we’re ignoring the smell and acting as though it’s still Alive because we’re Habituated to it.  Such as our Karma, our Suffering, our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs, and even our Desires.  For many of our Desires we’re just going through the motions.  Think about it – would you really Accept it if your Fantasy came true?  I know, you Glow like a Phosphor when you Dream about it, but what if it was “Real-Life”?  Lots of Yes-Buts there, eh?

The Full Moon Conjoins asteroid Atropos (Endings, Death of an Ego Timeline).  These Endings are particularly important, because we’re about to Rebirth a whole new Ego Timeline based completely on Self-Love, as our enduring Yin Gate transitions from Sedna-Aletheia Opposite Lilith to Sedna-Aletheia Opposite Sappho (Self-Love) and asteroid Klotho (the cloth from which a new Timeline is cut).  Of course the Golden Rectangle that encloses this new Yin Gate is the Ixion-Chaos-Uranus-Haumea Golden Rectangle.

There is a degree of Urgency here, or at least of Importance relative to the steps we’ll encounter in the near future.  At the ides of February we begin a 35-year Cycle during which The Most Important Thing is the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius, as Ixion Initiates Saturn.  The nature of the Cycle is “A chubby boy on a hobby-horse: The anticipatory Enjoyment of Powers one can only as yet Dream of Utilizing” (25 Capricorn).  This is the Embodiment of the Limitlessness that awaits us when we find the Self-Sovereignty, Self-Trust, Courage, and Self-Love to Embrace our Abandoned Genius Unconditionally.

And there’s a huge Arrow in the Heavens pointing to the Beliefs we have which are Anti-Life and Beseaching us to Abandon them.  The fletchings on the Arrow are…

  • Setting Boundaries against Abuse and Privilege (Pallas-Nessus-OR10-South Node)
  • Becoming Conscious of our Abandoned Genius (Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis)
  • Giving up Prejudice (asteroid Hopi)
  • Communion with Nature (the star Menkar)

These are Big Doin’s.  This is the Foundation for our Future.  Build it Sturdy.

This is the Grand Quintile we’ve previously discussed.  It was prominent on 7 January, and on 12 January at 9am PST we have a Triple Conjunction of Moon (Authenticity), Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs), and Varuna (the Life Force) on this corner of the Grand Quintile.  In a traditional chart it shows up loud and clear as a Quintile Yod (Pay Attention to Learning This) – the Arrow – from a base of the Quintile between Saturn-Ixion et al and Pallas-Nessus et al.  The other two fletchings, Hopi and Menkar, show up when we complete the chart.

There’s a Meditation and process for a thorough Cleansing of all of our Disused Psychic and Behavioral contents at…

https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2017/01/12/full-moon-meditation-and-journalling-exercise-for-releasing-fear-january-2017/

It constantly amazes me how everyone is on the same page here as we enter a Province where we’ve never been.  There is a very strong Collective Synchrony here, operating completely out of the Awareness of the folks yelling about today’s Disasters on the nightly news – or maybe they’re yelling at us because they’re trying to distract us from the Collective Synchrony and Trance us back into Overconsuming Sheoplehood.

And here’s another missive from Michael Roads, this one titled The Situation You Are in – Now – Is the Very Substance of Your Growth

“You may not like the situation you are in, but you created it, and you can benefit from it.  First, pay attention to all the positives in your situation, and then work with them, building anew.  Odd as it may seem, most people focus on the negatives, then oppose them, creating
more stress and suffering.  

“Truly, nothing in life ever works against you.  But you, of course, can work against life.  This means working against yourself.  Turn this around.  Accept the growth that is on offer, work with your situation, not against, and be aware of, and grateful for the blessings it always confers.  It is with life to always . . . choose Love!”

Shedding

December 30, 2016

Snagged on a poignant Vignette this morning, I caught myself beginning to indulge my Pain.  So I Shed – which feels somewhere between Opening my Angelwings and pouring a quart of (dry) water over my head – and in the process Realized that Stephen Levine’s writings would be particularly Powerful for us in this phase of our Transition.  My copies of his books aren’t handy, but I believe it was Healing into Life and Death or Guided Meditations, Explorations, and Healings that I was thinking of, probably the latter, the one full of incredibly Heart-Opening Guided Meditations.

There is a big difference between Forgiveness and Boundaries.  Forgiveness is a Discovery, not a Decision – you wake up one day and Discover that you aren’t Angry at them any more.  Which doesn’t mean you can’t Invite Forgiveness into your Life, as Stephen often does in these Meditations.  This is a Memory, not a quote…

“Whatever you may have done to Hurt me, Consciously or otherwise, I Forgive you.

“Whatever I may have done to Hurt you, Consciously or otherwise, I Ask that you Forgive me.”

I don’t think Stephen would mind if I misquoted him or borrowed his Work; he had an Ego as Inclusive as the Galaxy.  We’re approaching the first anniversary of his Transition out of his Incarnation…  

https://www.ramdass.org/remembering-stephen-levine-1937-2016/

Hurt is complicated – it can be a Commission or an Omission, or something else entirely, often “just” a Misalignment, where you’re trying to relate but you’re on different tracks.  But where there’s Pain, Inviting Forgiveness is useful.  This one is a quote, from http://levinetalks.com/Writings/single_post/ego-death 

“In the course of breaking the narrow confines of the self-image, a whole new world becomes available when you find out who you aren’t, including your suffering, which wipes out most of your precious/painful identity.  This can be a little disconcerting.

“Just before my face fell off, I looked back at my life as though it were my own.  I was possessed by memory.
“But as I passed behind the well-woven tapestry of appearances, history was undone.  The knots and snags that hold the illusion in place unraveling.
“The suffering defended so long dissolved like the Cheshire smile as a karmic wind caught a loose end and pulled . . .
“In transit beyond the known.”

And if you haven’t yet, and you can spare a week where you can’t do anything else but read (because it’s so compelling), Stephen’s Who Dies? is required reading for anyone.  Actually there’s a good chance you’ll find it to be The Most Important Thing you’ve ever done, so “sparing” a week might not be the right verb.

Back in the 1980s, when Pluto was in Scorpio (“The Way Out is Through”), before it crossed Sagittarius (“The Way Out is Letting Go”) into Capricorn (“Just Fix It Already”), a wonderful body of Literature was produced by the
“Recovery Movement.”  One of my favorites was Susan Forward’s Toxic Parents.  Nothing against parents, and mine were by no means the worst, but this book just does a great job of differentiating Forgiveness from Boundaries, and we need to understand this.

Like John Said…

Remember Both/And; Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart, not in the mind’s Duality.  Even if this is not your Truth, it may be useful to you, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help you Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help you Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for you in Unusual Circumstances.

2017, which is a Tenth-Harmonic (Abundance) Year, begins with dwarf planet Makemake Stationary.  A planet is at its Strongest when it’s Stationary.  The Essence of Makemake is Manifestation.  As John said…

But first we need to get past this week’s once-in-a-millennium Funfest.  Actually, though, since they’re co-incident, we need to interpret them as one astroevent.  How we Respond to this week will have a big Impact on how our Manifestation Skills shift in the New Year.  There are many Keys to that process…

(1) The Most Important Thing is inviting our Abandoned Genius to come Home.  Treat them like a Wild Animal that you’re trying to tame.  Offer them a Treat – like maybe an Open Heart to them, then step back and sit down, facing slightly away, so they don’t think you’re watching them (Change the Subject).  Then – sit quietly and Wait.  As long as it takes.  You can’t approach them directly.  You have to Demonstrate your Loving Kindness, Be Open and Inviting but Neutral and Non-Attached, and Let Them Approach You.  If you do that, they will come, you just don’t know how long it will take, so you need Patience.  

(2) You have Time, you don’t need to rush.  What you do need to do is to Show Them Consistency, and Avoid sudden moves that would Startle them.  Find your Space of Loving Kindness, and Apologize to your Abandoned Genius  for Allowing them be Banished from your Life.  Don’t Punish yourself, it was something you had to do in order to Survive at the Time, and your Safety was then paramount.  But Feel their Pain and Abandonment, over having been Banished all these years.  Then PIAVA that they Return to You, Let It Go, and send them Love.  Then after a while – several to many hours – check to see if you’ve Learned anything.  Then Do It Again.

(3) While you’re doing the Processes above and below, hold a Crystal or Jewel or Stone in your hand.  Choose one that you feel very Safe and Loving with.  If it’s wearable, great, wear it all week.  If not, keep it in a pocket if you can.  If it’s too big for that, put in a Sacred Space and Be There or Visualize it as you begin each of these Processes (do these whenever you think of it all week – constantly if possible!).  If you don’t have the perfect Crystal handy, gaze at this one…

Print it out (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4d/annabergite1.htm ) and carry it with you; that’s your Abandoned Genius sparkling there in the center, as It – that is, You, the Abandoned part of You – struggles to escape the maw that’s about to devour It – that is, You, your historical You.

(4) Be Compassionate with any Pain you Feel.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really hurting aren’t you.”  Then put your thoughts on something else.  After a while you can check in again to see if you’re still in Pain.  If you aren’t, spend a few minutes in Gratitude.  If you are still (or again) in Pain, give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…”  When You are Hurting, that’s literally True – You Are Hurt.  When you give yourself a “You poor Sweetheart…” You aren’t Hurt any more, You Are Compassion.  And Empathy Heals.  

(5) You don’t have to Fix anything or Change anything, you just have to be Loving and Gentle with yourself.  It’s actually The Most Important Thing.  Ask yourself, “I Wonder what would happen if I Trusted that my own Empathy is Enough to Heal Myself.”  Don’t seek Answers, just stay in Wonder as long as you can.  If you want you can Imagine that it’s True, then look to see what your Inner Eye sees.  If you see Peace, you’re Golden.  If you see Trouble, Ask what you’re Feeling there, and give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…” about that.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Doubt, aren’t you.”

(6) You are Learning a Paradox about how…

  • Self-Sovereignty (which includes Doing and Having What you Want)

is Related to… 

  • Being Truthful with Yourself about What you Fear

The Relationship isn’t Logical, so don’t try to make it so.  Imagine how you’ll Feel when you can Do and Have exactly what you Want to Do and Have, moment to moment.  Then Ask yourself if you have any Yes-Buts.  Take them one by one, and convert them to Yes-Ands.  This is a Paradox, remember, it doesn’t make sense.  Maybe something like… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And my Life is falling apart because I’m not honoring my ten zillion Commitments!”  Or… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And how am I treating other people?”  Then just Change the Subject.  Nothing to Solve, nothing to Fix, just another Paradox.  Trust a Perfect Unfoldment; you just See Through a Glass Darkly.

(7) Be on the lookout for Ego Death.  The Signs are Thinking “I’d rather Die” or “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do That,” Not recognizing the landmarks in your own neighborhood, Feeling Confused, Not being able to keep your regular schedule, Feeling like you’re just now meeting old friends or colleagues for the first time.  It’s like you’re a Walk-In, but you aren’t.  It’s Weird.  An Ego Death is actually an Ego Rebirth.  It’s exactly what you Crave.  Our natural Reaction is to do everything we can to Prevent a Death/Rebirth; you want to do everything you can to be Loving and Gentle with it.  You’re a Babe in Arms, put yourself to your Breast, rock, and coo.

(8) Every Memory, Flashback, Vignette, and Historical Flash you Receive is Significant.  This is what it’s about.  They’re all either…

  • Related to how you were before your “Betters” Abandoned/Abused you
  • Related to the chronic or acute Traumas that characterized or precipitated your Abandonment
  • Related to your resulting Lifetime Self-Abandonment
  • Related to the many episodes in your Life where you exercised your now-Habitual Self-Abandonment (any “If-Only-I’d-Have…” Flashbacks?)
  • Related to your Shoulds (which are all Self-Abandonments)
  • Related to the Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes that are Lit Up so you can become Conscious of them and Choose to Let them Go
  • Related to episodes of Genuine Self-Love and Self-Care (for Contrast)

Or several/many/ all of the above.

As we’ve said, these are Big Doin’s.

Makemake’s Exact Retrograde Station is at 3pm PST on 2 January.

(1) Abandoned Genius (AG) as The Most Important Thing (TMIT): Saturn/TMIT Conjunct Ixion/AG and Nemesis/Ego-Death Oppose dwarf planet Chaos/Unlimited-Potential, forming the base of a Chiron/Despair-and-Miracle T-Square/Challenge.  Saturn-Ixion Opposite Chaos and Jupiter-Haumea/Big-Rebirth Opposite Uranus-Ceres-Eris-Mnemosyne/Memories -to-make-our-True-Self-Sustainable form a  Golden Rectangle/Creative-Genius.

(2a) Having Time: Ixion Initiates Saturn 15 February in 25 Sagittarius.  Other closely related intermediate events:

  • Ixion Initiates Nemesis 6 January 25 Sagittarius
  • Juno Opposes Chaos 6 January
  • Juno Squares Chiron 7 January 
  • Saturn Initiates Juno 11 January 23 Sagittarius
  • Ixion Initiates Juno 19 January 26 Sagittarius
  • Jupiter Stationary Retrograde Conjunct Haumea 6 February 24 Libra

(2b) Survival/Safety: Moira/Fate Sextile Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno etc etc.

(3) Crystal: the Vacancy that completes the Chiron T-Square is 22 Virgo, A royal coat of arms rich in Precious Stones.  Annabergite is one of the few Crystalline Minerals that was Organically Alive just before it Crystalized.  The appropriate Heart color and dangerous positioning on this one is a convenient “coincidence.”  Or, you could use this Cluster (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4/tbam1878bp.htm ), with the Violet Flame:

(4) Compassion/Empathy: the Chiron T-Square.

(5) Wonder and Trust: the Tricolor Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno Square Chiron Quincunx Eurydike/Trust Trine Saturn-Ixion et al.

(6) Self-Sovereignty/Truth-Fear: Sedna-Aletheaia/Being-Truthful-about-our-Fear to Lilith/Self-Sovereignty Yin Gate/Mystery School embedded in the Golden Rectangle in (1).

(7) Ego Death: Jupiter/Amplification Conjunct Haumea/Rebirth, Uranus-Eris Stellium, Saturn-Ixion Stellium, etc etc etc.

(8) Flashbacks: Mnemosyne/Memories in the Uranus-Eris Stellium, Nemesis/Regret in the Saturn-Ixion Stellium, Aletheia/Truth on Sedna, etc etc etc.

Here’s a rather fascinating interview with germinal former Findhorn co-director David Spangler, very worth two hours of your time…

An excellent exercise in Cognitive Dissonance – the ability to hold Contradictory Beliefs in Consciousness at the same time without internal Conflict – an essential Skill for the Future and Present.

And an interesting development in the US election…

Connecting Off-Planet and Off-Dimension

July 11, 2016

As I’ve said many times, it’s important that we reconnect with Fairy Energies.  Everything we eat is derived from Plants, and Fairies are to Plants as Souls are to Hupers.  If you aren’t a Breatharian, you need to be on good terms with the Little People.

I’m recommending this week’s online “class” on these folks, “The Emerald Forest, Exploring the Mystery of Elemental Alchemy”...

https://lightquest-intl.com/schedule-workshops/

If you’d like an introduction to Bryan deFlores, scroll down on the same page to where it says…

“Radio Interview with Bryan – Fantastic!  
Awaken to Happiness Now”

It’s relatively long, but an excellent Perspective on our Off-Planet relations.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to one of Bryan’s workshops, but he seems to have mellowed a lot, seeming less self-conscious and simply excited by what he’s doing – which is a lot.  His artistry is amazing…

My skepticism has always been on full volume around his off-planet work, but he’s consistently managed to circumvent it.

 

Confusion and Leavia

June 25, 2016

This is very timely…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/25/pluto-teachings-on-impermanence/

Confusion is the first stage of Growth.

As Saturn Wanes toward Neptune over the next several years, we need to expect a Breakdown in the Definition (Saturn) of our Cultures (Neptune) that will require (Saturn) us all to shift our primary Perspective away from Matter and toward Spirit (Neptune). 

Someone on the BBC referred to Britain as being divided into two countries, Leavia and Remainia.  It’s amazing how much Fear-based propaganda is being thrown at Leavia – which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, since Remainia was a project of the Corporate Elites and their Fellow Travelers.  London was all Remainia – London is Britain’s “Wall Street.”  When do we get NAFTexit?

The Future hasn’t been Co-Created yet.  Our corner of it will be influenced greatly by what we PIAVA – including all those Unconscious and Semi-Conscious PIAVAs that we put out there under the guise of Anxiety.  Though it should help to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade those, and replace them as quickly as we can with PIAVAs for What We Do Want for ourself and for our role in the World.

“My power is over myself, is over how I learn to master myself.  Not about how I suppress my emotions but, more perhaps, about how I can work with these powerful energies.  CONSCIOUSLY.”

Yes, Power With ourself, not Power Over.  The difference is subtle and Powerful, critical for Co-Creating a desirable Future, and well described by Starhawk’s amazing and Life-Changing book Truth or Dare.  

Empathy with Self is fundamental.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling uncomfortable Emotions, aren’t you.  I Wonder what it would be like to Embrace them, to Locate them in my Body and put all of my Attention there, Lovingly and Gently.”  My own Response to doing this – when I remember to do it (Ay, there’s the rub, eh?!?), is a feeling of Ecstasy, though not always right away.  Maybe I can PIAVA to remember more often.

“It’s about finding ways to keep yourself centered so nothing (am I deluding myself?!) can throw you off balance.  Nothing!

Alas, we do need to be Vulnerable, and Embrace Confusion for itself, without trying to Change it.  Resistance to Vulnerability and Confusion is a serious Growth-preventing Limiting Belief.  Maybe we can resolve the apparent Contradiction by counting Both “Centered” And “Uncentered” as two distinct Emotions, and PIAVAing “how to work with these powerful energies Consciously” so we can build new Patterns that will allow us to Embrace them both automatically, before they throw us off Balance enough that we can’t Recover our Grounding in a short time.

“Feeling fearful or anxious won’t make any situation better.”

No, but we do need to Embrace our Fear as a valid Emotion (and Tap it out when it Feels Overwhelming – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 ).  And Learn to quickly recognize Anxiety as mental noise that keeps us from Feeling uncomfortable Emotions, so we can get right to work Learning how to Lovingly and Gently Embrace those Emotions, Rapidly and Completely.
