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…

January, Week 3, Start 2A

January 16, 2017

A regular reader writes…

“I have a thought that I’ve had many times.  Is thought random, or pre-planned?  And, when we experience a ‘negative’ thought, why does no one question the origin?  Are there etheric Lizards hurling thoughtforms into our awareness?  The Gnostics said so, that the seed of human error was ‘the mind parasite’ or the ‘foreign installation’ that Don Juan described to Carlos Castenada.  

This is also Buddhism’s biggest oversight (in my humble opinion)…it seeks to end suffering via various concepts, disciplines of the mind, and actions, but never asks about the origin or causes of the “why” of the human condition.  It ignores the deeper mystery in other words.”

Good points all, though I see the World differently.

I certainly agree that the mind is a (useful) parasite, but I don’t think we need to project our Xenophobia on it and make it foreign.  I believe we need to “own” its machinations as we need to “own” all of our Projections and Introjections.  

I’d say that not only are there the equivalent of etheric Lizards hurling all manner of thoughtforms at us, but there are also etheric Amphibians hurling all manner of Emotions at us, all of which are impersonal.  We glom onto and Personalize the ones that resonate with our Unfinished Business.  However, I’d regard all these images as metaphors.  I don’t believe anything coming out of our minds or mouths is ever anything but metaphor.  

There are so many different layers to, and (legitimate) Perspectives on, the Onion of “Reality” that I believe the Onion itself to be ineffable.  Many consider it Illusion.  I don’t usually think directly in those terms (it’s inconvenient to think of my desk as 99.999…% “empty” space), but I do believe that it’s Energy that’s “Real,” and Matter that’s insubstantial, held together by mass hypnosis and Emotional Energy.  Thought and Emotion are “Real” forms of Energy.

When asked why we don’t all see Psychic Energy, my first teacher relayed the metaphor that as children learning colors, we’d point at our mother’s friend’s Energy Body and say “Red!”  Mom would reply, “No honey, that’s a Blue dress.”  We don’t actually need etheric Lizards if we need to attribute Cause.

As for Buddhism, I’m quite sure that the omission of Why is purposive.  Why is the occupation of Monkey Mind, while Buddhism strives for Beginner’s Mind or “Don’t Know,” which is similar to the state of Awe and Wonder that I often refer to as Perpetual Curiosity.  Prior to making Conclusions, Curiosity like Unconditional Love eschews Judgment, so I consider it “next to Godliness.”  Metaphors are just word pictures; Conclusions, Certainties, Dogmas, and Either/Ors are Judgments.  

Now, I hope everyone notices that this is an Either/Or Judgment.  A better alternative would be…

“When you see someone making a choice that you would not make for yourself, let it go.  Show that person love and compassion, but do not feel the need to correct him or her.  Instead, be the leader that you are and the wayshower that you always intended to be by choosing for yourself the path of love, compassion, and unity.”  — http://danielscranton.com/the-way-of-the-wayshower-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ 

But it’s a Discernment I use to differentiate Spirituality from Politics – Spirituality is Both/And; Either/Or is Politics.  I find that this particular Either/Or Judgment is a very useful Heuristic as a bs meter.  A Heuristic is a methodology “that solves a problem quickly but is not certain to arrive at an optimal solution.”

As Michael Roads says, “It Is What It Is.”  Not more nor less.  The rest is just mindstuff.  I often refer to Cause and Effect as The Great God Causan Defect.  It’s a challenge to think in terms other than Cause and Effect.  A heresy even!  It’s merely our Patriarchal Programming, mass hypnosis.  See if you can go a day – or ten minutes – without seeing the World through the Glass Darkly of Cause and Effect.

Jung for one postulated an alternative sort of Relationship between Observations which describes many aspects of “Reality” far better than Causan Defect (Jung and Pauli, The Interpretation of Nature and the Psyche).  We see what we Expect to see.  Seeing the World without Expectations would be hugely Confusing – that is, Growthful!  But not easy.

And there’s no sense in which Buddhism “ignores the deeper mystery,” quite the contrary.  Buddhism believes that the Mystery lies not in the mind but in the Heart.  It sees the mind as Destroyer of Mystery.  The Matriarchy agreed.

Fear and Love

January 11, 2017

One of the fundamental principles of our Relationship to the Universe is that Fear is Cold and Hard, while Love is Warm and Soft.  Fear creates scar tissue, walling off Physical and Emotional Trauma into pockets that become Unconscious, or Denied.  Again, Denial is a healthy Response to Overwhelm, it’s just not the most Healing Response possible if we have options.  

Next time you scratch or cut or bruise yourself, watch closely how you React.  My “natural” (ie, Habituated) Reaction is to Psychically “seal off” the wound; is yours?  When I Consciously Choose to Open to it, Warm it (in my Imagination or Physically, putting my hand or a wrap on it), and Soften around it, I can Feel the Healing Energy start to flow.  Putting your hand on a wound, or if it reaches putting the wound to your Heart, adds Healing Energy directly.

In Relationship, including our Relationship with ourself, Fear Manifests as either Abandonment or Suffocation.  Some of us React primarily from Abandonment (our Hungry Ghost can’t get enough), some of us primarily from Suffocation (we back away from Love, we have difficulty Receiving), and most of us manage to React from our Abandonment at some times and from our Suffocation at other times.  It’s particularly Frustrating to Experience both at once.

Recognizing Abandonment and Suffocation day-to-day is a good way to Depersonalize the Heavy Emotions that arise in Relationships.  We can replace “Oh my God, they don’t Love me!”  with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment again.”  With a little practice it almost becomes “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling your Abandonment again, aren’t you.”  And when someone is clinging to our coattails a little too tightly for our comfort, we can Recognize that they’re in their Abandonment and, recalling our own, we can be Kind to them without having to React or Pretend or call them a disfavored Body part.

Or, if someone is clinging to our coattails a little too tightly for our comfort, we can Recognize that we’re in our Suffocation, and loosen up a little.  Instead of snapping at them or being snitty, we can take a brief Time-Out and give ourself a quick “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Suffocated again, aren’t you” or even just a “Oh, there’s my Suffocation again.”  In a Relationship we want to keep and develop, this can make all the difference between their Experiencing us as Cold and Hard, or Experiencing us as Soft and Warm.

Practice this enough, and pretty soon we’re making Conscious Choices moment by moment about how permeable or impenetrable we want our Boundaries to be, tuning our Safety and Vulnerability to the situation at hand, rather than Reacting from the Unconscious Karmic Archetypes and Programmed Trances that previously ran our Life and Relationships.  

This is only one aspect of the Mystery School we’re all enrolled in.  It’s about earning our Self-Sovereignty through becoming Conscious of what we hadn’t Realized was Behavior Motivated by Fear.  Abandonment is Fear that we won’t get what we need.  Suffocation is Fear that we won’t have the space to be who we Really Are.  I’ll wager it won’t take you more than half a minute to see where Abandonment and Suffocation fit into your Relationship Patterns.

We can extend this to Abundance.  When we’re Feeling Scarcity, or Anxious about Survival, what happens when we say to ourself, “Oh, there’s my Abandonment again”?  The Patriarchal Culture programs us to think our Abundance is All Me, completely the result of my own Work or Smarts or Schmoozing.  It’s not.  Before the Lizards invented money, it was all about Community.  You could freeze to death, or starve all on your own, but you couldn’t do much else without your Community.  Outside the propaganda storm, it’s still that way.

Next time you catch yourself hating what you have to do to make money, tell yourself “Oh, there’s my Suffocation again.”  Very few of our Emotions are “Caused” by what the acculturated Mind thinks they’re Triggered by.  If it’s “I hate this job” your Projecting your Suffocation on your job, and you’re in a Cold and Hard place besides.  You could even tap on “Even though I Feel Suffocated doing this, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  You’d be withdrawing the Projection and moving to Soft and Warm in a few sequences.

That alone could shift you into Gratitude and help you Realize that you already are in Community, even if it’s not exactly the Community you ultimately Want to Manifest.  The next step would be Realizing that you’ve Proven to yourself that you do know how to Create Community.  Then you can PIAVA whatever Improvements you’d like to see in your Community, and sooner or later you’d find yourself Planning and Executing steps in that direction.

Owning your Abandonment and Suffocation as your own endogenous Emotional processes – Emotions that arise without Clear External Triggers, even though, sure, your Mind can easily find a hundred faux current-moment rationalizations – will put you in a position of Neutrality.  Neutrality is necessary to be Fully Present in the Moment so you can Manifest directly without having to make it into a Struggle.  

Griz doesn’t Struggle to find Huckleberries to add pudge to see Her through Her long winter’s nap, she just Sniffs the Air, senses the Changing Light, hears the Hucklebushes calling her name, and knows it’s time to go up the Mountain for her sweet and savory Autumn feast.  Yes, sometimes the Huckleberry crop fails and She wakes us hungry mid-winter and has to raid Huper cabins to get through, but that’s not much of a Struggle either, since Hupers make their doors so flimsy.  We only Struggle because we get Attached to our Beliefs and Project our unpleasant Feelings into our surroundings.

Like John Said…

December 27, 2016

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…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2016/12/it-is-now-arcturians-through-suzanne-lie.html

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqP3wT5lpa4

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…

Annabergite 3952 photo:J.Buss

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.

Consciousness and Matter 1

December 4, 2016

This is an excellent, if not completely explicit, beginning toward explaining the Connection between Lunar Energy/Emotion and Matter, as well as the waves of Emotional turmoil many of us are experiencing…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2016/12/identifying-first-cause-by-arcturians.html

It’s long, but well worth finishing.  Thanks to https://bluedragonjournal.com/ for the tip.

The dwarf planet Haumea – Rebirth – is sitting between us and Arcturus, focusing Arcturian Energy to our Planet.

Haumea is one corner of the Ixion Golden Rectangle and Sedna Yin Gate that we’ve been discussing, as well as one corner of the Eurydike Grand Sextile, all of which are ongoing.  Haumea is also only a few Degrees south of Arcturus in Declination.

We refer to the Golden Rectangle as the “Ixion Golden Rectangle” because the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius (Ixion) is for most of us the most Challenging element in the Golden Rectangle.  It’s four corners are… 

  • Ixion-Pholus: Being Fully Responsible to our Abandoned Genius (or, as Marianne Williamson so poetically expresses it, our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity)
  • Dwarf planet Chaos: Unlimited Potential
  • Haumea: Rebirth
  • Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne: Egoic Fidelity to our Soul Self, Being Open to the Revelation of Denial, and Making this Sustainable, via the Loving Embrace of Challenging Memories

We refer to the Yin Gate as the “Sedna Yin Gate” because Conscious and Loving Response to Terror (Sedna) is the most Challenging element in the Yin Gate.  A Yin Gate above all asks us to recognize that Contradiction exists only in the mind; in Reality there is Paradox – Coexistence on levels that the mind does not understand, but not Contradiction.  In addition to the Golden Rectangle, the Yin Gate‘s Spine is comprised of…

  • Lilith: Self-Sovereignty
  • Sedna: Conscious and Loving Response to Fear

Lilith is particularly associated with Female Self-Sovereignty, highlighting the Challenges presented by Misogynist politics.  As important, Lilith is associated with Sovereignty for the Anima or Inner Female of the second gender.

Sedna is also the focus of a Quintile Yod from Jupiter and Mercury, meaning that it is Very Important that we Learn how to Consciously Expand into being Lovingly Aware of what most Frightens us.  Start by Breathing.

We refer to the Grand Sextile as the “Eurydike Grand Sextile” because when we use established astrological planets we only get five of the six corners.  The sixth corner would be the Vacancy, which becomes the Strongest corner of the Grand Sextile, and signifies the Energy which we must provide Consciously in order to trigger the Ease and Grace implied by a Grand Sextile.

The esoteric asteroid Eurydike (Trust) fills the Grand Sextile Vacancy, so it is Trust that will Liberate Grace for us here.  In addition to the Golden Rectangle and Eurydike, the sixth corner of the Grand Sextile is Pallas (Boundaries).

And finally, Sedna is also one corner of the Grand Cross, with Lilith, Eurydike, and Pallas.  A Grand Cross shows the necessity to Multitask in order to attend to all of the Energy we’re encountering, in this case the necessity to split our Attention between

  • Responding Consciously to Fear,
  • Asserting our Self-Sovereignty,
  • Setting Effective Boundaries, and
  • Trusting our Heart’s Truth

without diminishing our Attention to any of the four.

For dessert, we also have in today’s Quitaly chart two Fingers of God (Pay Attention!) intertwined with each other and with a Major Tricolor (Curiosity), as follows…

  • A Yod to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) from Mercury-Hylonome (Conscious Escape from Archetypes) and OR10-Nessus (Irruption of Memories of Abuse) and a Yod to OR10-Nessus from Vesta and Makemake-Hopi (Manifesting in the context of Respect for All Things): In the guise of unpleasant or Traumatic Memories, we are being Liberated from Limiting Beliefs; it behooves us to stay Conscious and Loving with our Libereation this rather than indulging our Victim – that was then, this is Now.  Recognize the Connection between Manifesting in the context of Respect for All Things and the download from the Arcturians.
  • A Square (Mastery through Challenge) from Vesta to Sappho-Klotho (Designing a new Ego wrapped around Self-Love) is Quincunx (Curiosity) to OR10-Nessus, which is in turn Trine (Grace) to Sappho-Klotho: We invoke our own Passion to lend Power to our Rebirth into Self-Love by Embracing Perpetual Curiosity – AND AVOIDING CONCLUSIONS – about the Relationship between Traumatic Experience/Memory and Limiting Beliefs.  Recognize the Connection between Passion-Emotion-Power and Suzanne’s comments in the Arcturian message above: 
“What you will need to let go is the causation of any actions and behaviors that cannot resonate to the fifth dimension.  Then, in order to release that causation, you will need to identify those thoughts, emotions, and actions that prevent you from resonating to the fifth dimension. 
 
“You will begin by identifying “First Cause.”  We define First Cause as that which creates the first thoughts and emotions that bond together to create the “First Concept.”  To change a behavior, you must start with the conception of that which caused that behavior. 
 
“The conception is what thoughts and what emotional reactions created, accompanied, and/or arose from that conceptual thought.  We are not using the word “concept” as just an idea.  We also use it conceptually, as in the ability to conceive.
 
“Once your thoughts and emotions join to conceive a “concept,” they begin to bond and intertwine in a multidimensional manner.  The lowest frequencies of the conceptual bond hold fear and doubt.  Conversely, the highest frequenciesof the conceptual bond hold love and light.”
 
This isn’t everyday trivia, it’s Shakespearean Drama.  Remember that our Bottom Line here is What we’re Learning.  
 
We don’t have any results around Quitaly yet, but the USArmy Corps of Engineers a few moments ago agreed to reroute the Dakota Access Pipeline.  Even if that is eventually overturned, it is a welcome delay from the potential start of another Civil War.

2020 B

October 20, 2016

By 2020 we’re still working on these 22-25 Degrees!  Good idea to put extra effort into our very busy and demanding homework on these Degrees now; the more we do now, the easier it will be later!  The Universe isn’t Random – this long span of working with these Degrees is a primer for the 2020 Saturn-Pluto.  When we’re speaking of Huperity at large, Saturn-Pluto makes the Lizards jump for Joy, creating some of the bleakest times for Huperity.  Like the massive earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, or “9/11,” or NAFTA and the WTO, or AIDS – correlates to our last four Saturn-Pluto adventures.

The 2020 Saturn-Pluto occurs at 23 Capricorn, “Bravery in Combat” – which it is likely to feel like if it turns out to be a showdown between the Patriarchy and its successor, or between the Lizards and the Mammals – we’ll bring this up later.

It draws a big crowd – it’s a Stellium of six planets between 22 and 26 Degrees of Capricorn – Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Hopi.

 That combination has the potential to Change Huper Herstory significantly.

The Stellium Squares Eris, which is Stationary, and makes a Minor Tricolor to Chaos-Asbolus: Eris Square Stellium Quincunx Chaos-Asbolus Sextile Eris…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Accept the Truth (Eris)?”

We’ll go into the Moon’s deeper meaning of Instinct and Authenticity – which should totally Change our Attitude toward Pluto-Moon, in a little while.

The biggest Configuration in the 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation chart is a Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet) to a Stationary Nemesis.  Pallas-Veritas and Chaos-Asbolus form the base of the T-Square.  Hopi-Venus and Eris form the base of the Yod.  As part of this Configuration…

Nemesis Square Chaos-Asbolus Quincunx Stellium Trine Nemesis forms a Major Tricolor…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Understand how I sabotage myself (Nemesis)?”

Which brings us directly back to the Moon.  In mundane 3D Reality, the Moon symbolizes our “Random” Emotions.  Someone cuts us off in traffic, and one day we’re shaking our fist at them, the next day we slow down and make space for them, assuming they have a good reason to hurry, maybe even say a quick Prayer for their Safety.  Venus on the other hand represents our Consistent Emotions – our Values.  Unless there are extenuating circumstances or superior Values, we seldom Feel Enthused when someone commits murder.  The third level of the Emotional panoply is Vesta, which stands for our Unconscious Beliefs.  It takes Experience to figure out which of our Values arise from our Heart (Venus) and which arise from our Karma or Programming or Archetypes (Vesta).

Now, let’s look at those Random Emotions.  Chances are, the fellow (it probably was a male) whom you got mad at for cutting you off was probably himself Angry, maybe he thought you were slowing him down, or maybe he was just having a bad day, or maybe all of his days were bad ones.  The person you didn’t get mad at, probably did have a good reason to be in a hurry, rushing to the hospital or pick up their kid from school on time.  Feelings don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re a Field, and we have to be very careful to distinguish our own from other peoples’.

What does that tell us about the Moon?  It represents our Instincts!

How often do we Trust our Instincts?  When we’re cut off in traffic, we don’t need to invest a lot of intellectual firepower in figuring out why it happened, so we just back off the throttle, either out of consideration or out of caution.  When someone gives us a very subtle insult, the issue is a lot different.  Do we allow ourself to React Honestly?  Do we consider who it was that insulted us?  Do we take a time out and investigate whether it’s really just an old Unconscious wound of our own that was triggered by an innocent comment, and not an insult at all?  

If we were living in Yintegrity, and it was Safe to do so (it wouldn’t cost us our livelihood or our Life), we might React Honestly, watch where the chips fell, and iron out the complications accordingly – readjust our Relationship if it really was an undeserved insult, or make amends if their defense was credible.  Then examine our own wounds later, in the privacy of our own Psyche (if we didn’t have a bruise already, the insult wouldn’t have hurt).  If we really Trusted our Instincts, we might not even care if our Livelihood or Life was threatened – we might take it as an indication that Change was on the schedule, and follow the thread with Curiosity.

Astrology always gives us plenty of Opportunity to practice.  The Moon crosses or Squares or Opposes Pluto once a week!  It won’t be as intense, but Moon over Pluto will have a lot of core similarity to Pluto over Moon.  This will be excellent practice for all of us – when the Moon crosses Pluto, how do we Relate to our Instincts?  Do we Learn anything about how we Relate to our Instincts?  Here’s our schedule for the next month…

  • 21 October, noon PDT (plus or minus an hour or two)
  • 26 October, 1am PDT
  • 5 November, 2am PDT
  • 12 November, 8pm PDT

Let me know how this turns out – do you Observe anything useful?  Learn anything useful?

Honesty and Trust (and Discernment) around our Instincts is a big part of our Authenticity – we could think of the Moon as the local surrogate for Eris.  We routinely discount her because we’re programmed to “be Nice.”  Authenticity is represented by the Eighteenth Harmonic – planets that are separated by Angles that are multiples of twenty Degrees, half a Novile.  We can Learn a lot about our Relationship to our Authenticity by looking at which planets in our natality (birth chart) are separated by multiples of twenty Degrees.

Next we need to look at what else is going on in 2020; it’s actually more significant than the Pluto-Saturn Initiation.  The Pluto-Saturn Cycle spans thirty-some years (Pluto moves faster at some times than others), while the more important Cycle we’ll talk about spans two centuries, and will have a big impact on our Lives.  We hint at it strongly in Reasons for Optimism below.

2020 A

October 19, 2016

Another regular reader writes…

“I’ve become aware through your posts about the 2020 conjunction.  I did the chart for 12 January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are conjunct at 22 Capricorn, conjunct my natal Moon by less than 1 degree of sensitivity.  Should I be concerned?!  That looks like a very potent … something.” 

Well, if there’s any astroevent that folks almost universally report to be max nasty, it’s Pluto (in the Sky now/then) crossing your natal Moon.  Ask Fernanda, who’s just been through it…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/tag/pluto-square-moon/

So you’ve got a little over three years to Learn to Be Totally Loving with All Possible Emotions – should be Easy, right?  Your Pluto-Moon Can-Opener will be almost a month later, but your Saturn-Moon Can-Opener is only a couple of days after the Pluto-Saturn Initiation, so The Most Important Thing (Saturn) for you, for a while before Pluto actually does the deed, will be Learning to Be Totally Loving with All Possible Emotions.  With care, you should be well prepared.

“Pluto-Moon Can-Opener” means the first time Pluto in the Sky then crosses their natal Moon; Can-Opener because the first astroevent in a series almost always Opens a Can of Worms that we’d been blissfully ignoring or Denying.  No one experiences Pluto-Moon twice, so we have nil direct Experience with it in the Lifetime.  If we’re old enough, though, we can look back to a Pluto-Moon Square to retrieve quality indirect Experience.

“Saturn-Moon Can-Opener” means the first time Saturn in the Sky then crosses their natal Moon.  Saturn-Moon “Transits” (planets in the sky now/then crossing natal planets) occur every 7 years or so (counting Squares and Oppositions), so by reviewing all those prior time periods we can well prepare for a Saturn-Moon Transit.

The “Pluto-Saturn Initiation” refers to what will be going on in the Sky then.

The key to any Emotion is staying in the Present Moment.  Emotions are Paper Tigers; they don’t actually bite, they just cast threatening Shadows.  Under the Influence of any heavy Emotion, what’s going on in the Present Moment runs something like…

  • (1) “I Am [name of Emotion]” when you’re Identifying with the Emotion – or worse yet, with any Negative Thoughts that accompany and reinforce the Emotion
    • (2) “This Feeling Overwhelms me” when you’re beginning to break out of the Identification or Trance – and you’re still Conscious, ie, not Regressed to an age where you had little Skill with Emotion; hence the benefit of studying prior Experience
    • (3) “What color is the wallpaper?” if you’re Regressed, because there’s a good chance it will be different than it was when you were that earlier age, giving you an Opportunity to return to the Present Moment
  • (4) The next step is “I Feel [name of Emotion],” shifting from “I Am crap” to “I Feel crappy” as you Disidentify further
  • (5)  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling krappy, aren’t you” as you Identify with Compassion instead of crap.  If you’ve practiced this a thousand times, and you’re lucky, your Abandoned and possibly Abused Herstorical Child, from your earlier age, will then talk back to you, giving you the Opportunity to bring them and their Unique Skills into the Present Moment as an integral part of your Self
  • (6) “Wow, that Emotion was Compelling” when you’ve stepped aside and let the bus run over someone else

If you’re working with it constructively.  You can see why Pluto makes it so hard when you notice the key words…

  • “Overwhelming” – the Ego is Overwhelmed whenever you misinterpret Labor Pains to be Death Throes – which is always an Opportunity to examine our Fear of Death.  Never pass up an Opportunity to do that.
  • “Trance” – Pluto is about Transformation, ie, ReFormation of the Unconscious Trance that has been driving your Consciousness as if it was a drone
  • “Compelling” – Pluto is always Compulsive

Here’s a wonderfully precise description of the fundamental issue…

Resisting What We Really Feel

July 14, 2016

A great review of the simple way to Tap out intense Discomfort of any kind…

http://drkimderamo.com/eft-sequence-to-release-intense-stress/

and another for Tapping out Doubt…

http://drkimderamo.com/if-you-doubt-healing-could-be-this-easy/

It also helps to rank your Discomfort or Doubt before and after Tapping.  A “scale of one to ten” is typical, but you can use anything you want – “one to a hundred” might work better, especially if you’re able to let the number come to you instead of having to “compute” it.  If one Tapping sequence increases your Comfort or Willingness to Receive even 2%, that’s a solid sign that you’re moving in the right direction.

Let your Tapping phrase evolve as you use it.  When you finish one Tapping sequence you may think of different approaches or entirely different phrases that will make a positive contribution to what you’re trying to Change.  While some folks also add positive phrases, and while negative phrases may be contrary to many suggestions, Tapping uses negative phrases on purpose, because you’re expressing the negativity you’re Really Feeling.  Simultaneously activating the Meridians brings your Energy back into Balance so that the negativity is corrected automatically.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of time explaining yourself, you can Tap in public, or in other situations where movement would be inconvenient, by Imagining each of the nine Tapping points as you repeat your phrase silently.  Intention follows Attention.

Gary Craig, who adapted this version of Tapping, frequently says that our Limiting Beliefs are like three-legged stools.  They may not appear to be moving at all, but once we Tap out one of the legs, the whole structure topples.  Tapping, Imagination, and Persistence make an unbeatable threesome.

If you’re taking Bryan’s Emerald Forest workshop (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/07/11/connecting-off-planet-and-off-dimension/ ), which is absolutely Delightful and highly recommended (there’s still time; you’ll need only several hours of time anytime between now and Saturday), I recommend you replace “Call Forth” with “Invite” in his Invocations.  Fairies embody Yintegrity, and like you, don’t appreciate being summoned.

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.

Yintegrity Rising

June 23, 2016

A reader writes…

I don’t think they are happy with me.  I am not following their tradition and I’m not sure what the impact of that will be, but I don’t care!  I’m not doing what I should, I’m doing what I want.  And that is SO different for me.

“I’ve always been the analyze/plan/execute person.  I do my duty.  I fulfill my promises.  If I commit, I follow through.  Period.  No doubt.  No question.  I guess what you would call “Yangtegrity.”  And it has served me well.  Very well.  For my whole life.

“Over the past…18 months, two years, there’s been a growing resistance to all of it!  I don’t even want to show up half the time!  (I’ve always taught my kids-Showing up is 80% of success.)  My intellect is so confused, my ego is having panic attacks.  Is this moving into Yintegrity?  

“There’s a third part of me that is very calmly standing by, reassuring that we’ll work out a new way of functioning, everything will be fine, the earth will not stop spinning on its axis.  So is that the pressure and fear I’m feeling?  The shift into Yintegrity?”

You bet!!  

And like any Big Change, there’s a hollow space, a gap, where our Olde Ego is in Lackawanna (“I know I’m done for; why should I care?”), and our New Ego hasn’t got its training wheels on straight yet.  So we’re wobbly.  Confusion is good; it’s a reliable sign that we’re Growing.  Anxiety is common, as our Olde Patriarchy-Attuned Egos needed to know what was going on so they could figure out who to Please how, when.

Time for PIAVAs.  “Great Spirit, please help me Trust my True Future so I can Surrender my False Past more comfortably” or the like.  “I wonder where the Hell I’m going, anyway.”  With Saturn Waning Square to Neptune and moving into the Void Space between them, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is Confusion (Neptune).  Neptune symbolizes Confusion when viewing the World through Material Eyes, and Clarity when we shift to Spiritual Eyes.  “Ganeshi, please Remove all Obstacles to Opening my Third Eye.”

 Another timely story…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/professionautism/

Love the title – ProfessionAutism.  I read it as Professionalism twice before I noticed the Aut.  In another post she says Pluto is on her Moon – I don’t know of any greater Emotional Challenge.  A perfect time to “hang loose,” but not even that is easy under Pluto-Moon.  “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that Ease and Grace fill my Life.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess. … Show me.”

That’s a simplified form of Theta Healing.  Once you say “Show me,” look to see whether your Vision or other Intuitive Sense shows you bathed in Ease and Grace.  If not, look to see what else you need to Command.  Maybe Trust, or Enough to Eat, or just Breathing.

When the World, or your Community, or just your Household or Camp, operates through Yintegrity, the whole World is different.  People do things when they want to, and when someone resents something not being done, it’s up to them to recognize that it’s their job to do.  Or their job to inspire (not require or bully) someone else to do it, maybe as a group project where participation is of course optional – you would join or not because, in the moment, it’s more fun than doing otherwise.  

The Most Important Thing gets done, even if it’s not what you thought was The Most Important Thing.  Between the Waning Saturn Square to Neptune and the next Initiation, Cultures break down.  The next Neptune-Saturn Initiation isn’t until 2026, six years into the Digital Age.  It’s at the Aries Point – Manifestation into (Feminine) Form.  Aries Creates by Instinct, not by having a picture beforehand of the “finished” product.  Creating and “finishing” are two different Universes, with only accidental intersections.

Here’s a picture of it anyway – it’s not a “finished” picture, but a picture of the Yintegrity process unfolding…

https://cristenrodgers.net/2016/06/23/speak-your-truth-not-your-mind/

I would suggest though, that “The ways in which Other Living Things can speak may also be almost infinite – the truth or a lie, clearly or in riddles, with language or with art.”  We maybe just haven’t heard them yet, till we get our Third Eye – or Ear – Open.  And that Everything is Living.

And, Saturn runs a Gauntlet of Initiations before it gets back to Neptune – Ixion, Pholus, Quaoar, the Galactic Center, Chariklo, Hylonome, Pluto. OR10, and Nessus!  Saturn will be a very different Animal by then, and we will be too.  Sounds like this Gauntlet would be worth a post of its own, eh?

And we didn’t even notice that Saturn was Initiated by the Great Attractor this last February, with an Exposition in May!  The Great Attractor is Headquarters to the Galactic Center – Cosmic HQ.  No wonder it’s been a heavy year so far, as if we haven’t had enough excuses!  We’re being asked to align ourselves with an Energy more Powerful than even Galactic Energy.
