Intuitive Confidence IV – Asbolus

September 18, 2017

While both our Massive Blessing Energy and the Asbolus Energy are prominent during this whole span (± 15-19 September; refer to the Calendar, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/03/calendar/), now after the Chariklo Station, this Asbolus Energy is Strongest.  There’s only one ‘s’ in the first syllable, but many folks in Western Culture act as if there are two, working hard to renounce their Intuition.  The dwarf planet Asbolus is a Centaur.  In Greek tales, a Centaur is half huper and half horse, spawn of Badboy Ixion raping a Cloud.  In astronomy, a Centaur is a minor planet with an elliptical orbit between Jupiter and Neptune. 

Astrology takes its meaning mostly from six sources.  First, the astronomy.  Second, Synchronies with the mythological name.  Third, a chart for the planet’s initial “Discovery” (as a birth chart; the planet wasn’t born then, but it’s introduction into Huper Consciousness was).  Fourth, our Experience with the planet in birth charts and Transits (when a planet in the Sky makes a significant Angle to one of our birth planets).  Fifth, our Experience when the planet is “lit up” in the sky,  for instance when it’s Stationary, as it is now.  And sixth, Channeling and Intuition.

The meaning we assign to Asbolus is Intuition.  The chart of her Station is less sanguine than that of her fellow Centaur Chariklo (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/15/intuitive-confidence-ii-massive-blessing/)…

The other three corners of the Grand Cross (big red + inside the red , symbolizing high Motivation) are instructive – Trust (asteroid Eurydike) at the top, Priority (Saturn, The Most Important Thing) at the left, and Timing (Lachesis, Choice about when to Change a Decision or Abolish an Archetype) in the foundation at the bottom.  Trust, Priority, and Timing form an excellent foundation for improving our Access to our Intuition, which as we’ll see in the next post is a big part of what we’re Learning this week.

If you turn the chart upside down you can see the Lachesis Diamond Star (a T-Square – red Δ – and a Finger of God – green wedge – with the same focus).  A Diamond Star is a Challenge made Easier by Grace (blue truss Bridge across the Opposition) and Attention to (the feet of the Finger of God) Truth (asteroid Veritas) and Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi).  We can read this beneficial combination of Truth, Respect, and Timing as Neutrality.

Transformation, or Trance Re-Formation (Pluto), has a prominent role in the Asbolus Station, being the focus of a second Pay Attention! Configuration (Finger of God or Yod, the green wedge pointing to Pluto) around the Truth of our Intuition (Veritas and Asbolus), and Challenging our Ability and Willingness to Respect All Things (Pluto Square to Hopi).  The intellect makes Judgments, which remove us from the Sacred Space of Love and Curiosity.  Intuition makes Recommendations and Preferences that can Ask us to make Choices, but within a Space of Compassion.  

Our favorite Intuition Crystal is Apophyllite, a Potassium Calcium Silicate…

It looks like an exceptionally clear Quartz Crystal, but with four sides rather than six.  While an Apophyllite Crystal often looks integral, it’s actually a Mica, or Phyllosilicate.  Micas are made up of thin sheets of Silicate, with very strong bonds within each sheet and very weak bonds between sheets.  Because the surfaces and edges of each sheet are exceptionally smooth, they Reflect Light intensely, like the Dihydrogen Oxide Crystal in your Lemonade. 

If you look carefully into this Crystal you can see several horizontal lines, where the apparent color of the crystal changes from greyish (top) to greeny-blackish to whitish – those are lines between sheets, and if you dropped or rapped the Crystal it would cleave at those lines.  Most micas will cleave into thin sheets; Apophyllite will often have tighter bonds between some sheets, so a broken Crystal will look whole and unbroken, but with a perfectly flat top and bottom.

Which is an excellent metaphor for Intuition.  Intuition is Bright and Fluid, but easily frozen.  The lines between well-bound sheets represents Intellectualization.  We get a Fluid Intuitive Breakthrough, and we immediately freeze it with the mind into an Idea.  We Ask which way to go and we get the message to go West.  Once we take a step to the West, if we’re truly Operating on Intuition, rather than taking a second step to the West, we need to Ask again – the preferred second step may be to the South.  Yes, the mind says, “How impractical!  It will take me forever to get anywhere!”  The mind always thinks it’s going somewhere.

But like anything else, it takes Repetition to Develop the Habit of Trusting Intuition well enough that it’s automatic, so it Operates as quickly as a thought.  Of course it always does already, so really it’s about Training ourselves to quit using our thoughts to Reject our Intuitions.  Once we’re heading West, the mind will tend to continue heading West.  When I’m out driving around and I’m not sure which way to go, I let my Hands on the steering wheel make the decision which way to turn, rather than Deciding beforehand.  This is an old cartoon, so you may not recognize it, but this kid was a pro at Intuitive Meandering…

Which illustrates another characteristic of Intuition; it comes straight from the Unconscious, so it may not always support our Conscious Egoic Intentions.  Mommy thought the Letters needed to be sent today, but Intuitively, Billy – or the Letters – had other plans.  Time to Change the Subject and Pay Attention.

When you Operate Intuitively, the only Explanation or Justification you ever need to give for your Behavior is that “My Gut told me,” or the equivalent.  Intuition comes to each of us in a different form.  For some of us it’s the Gut, for others the Heart, for others it’s a Voice or a Vision or an Emotion, or a twitch in the third toe, or a “Little Bird.”  Only you know what Channel your Intuition arrives on, based on your Experience with it.  If you don’t know that Consciously already, this would be a good time to PIAVA to gain that Wisdom, but resolve to hold the information lightly.  It may Change, and your Perception of it is likely to get more accurate with Practice.

Intuitive Confidence I

September 14, 2017

The Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/) says our next Adventure is about Improving our Confidence in our Intuition, and Nurturing Confidence that’s more Intuitive…

15-19 September 2017

Chariklo (Self-Confidence) turning Direct in 10 Capricorn on 17 September (3am PDT).

Ceres (Sustainability) in 29 Cancer returns In-Bounds on 18 September (11pm) after being Out-of-Bounds (Strong) since 1 July.

Asbolus (Intuition) turning Retrograde in 19 Gemini on 18 September (2:30pm PDT).

Orcus Initiates Mars in 10 Virgo, “Two heads looking out and beyond the Shadows” (Transcending Duality) on 19 September (10:30 am PDT).

Haumea Opposite Eris Exact in 24 Libra-Aries on 19 September (8pm PDT)

New Moon in 28 Virgo on 19 September (10:30 pm PDT).

It’s not so much that we have to think about it to call forth our Self-Confidence.  It’s the other way around – our Self-Doubts (which are thoughts) destroy our Self-Confidence.  So if we were able to Delegate our Self-Confidence to our Intuition instead of our intellect, it might be more Resilient.  If our Self-Confidence really was Intuitive, and not poisoned by the skeptical mind, we might even interpret a sense that something’s wrong as a signal to Attend to our Safety more closely, rather than a signal that We Aren’t Good Enough.

More Choice

August 29, 2017

The Arcturians, through Daniel Scranton, advise…

“Even the ability to connect with beings such as ourselves is one that more of you than ever are capable of having and utilizing.  We are meant to be your guides and to serve, and we want to reach as many of you as we can.

“[As for] your fifth dimensional abilities now, we must say that it’s going to be hard for some of you to accept that what you are experiencing is real.  There have been lifetimes for each of you when you’ve tapped in to abilities that others did not have, and you were branded as insane, or a witch, or in some other way ostracized.  And so, as much as you want to have the abilities that you want to have, you also understand that they come with a price.

“For some of you that price will simply be processing the fears that you have of persecution and the fears that you have of simply being weird.  For others you will need to process that branding that can take place, that persecution, and all that you have suffered in your previous lifetimes when you were able to see, and do, and hear things that others could not.”

Held Emotions, in other words.

“It’s time for all of you to step into your power so that you can guide, so that you can lead and so that you can help to awaken those who have no idea that there is a shift happening.  This can be fun for you if you allow it to be.  It does not have to be a burden.  Open yourselves up to receiving those abilities and trust that what you see, and what you hear, and what you feel is really real.”

With asteroid Moira Stationary, the Door to the Unconscious is wide Open, Allowing us to Access all manner of Information, Skills, Entities, Ghosts, Superheros, and most everything that’s Gone Walkabout.  Remember those tennis shoes that disappeared in 1988?  There is no Time or Space in the Unconscious, only Now and Here, as Ram Dass famously suggested.  So you can Choose to contact anyone or anything you like, from any current, past, or future time.  Until you get used to doing this, the results will be very subtle, and you’ll need to practice your “Well, what if it was” mantra.

The Door is Open now, but even after it closes, if you Choose to So Believe, you can take with you what you’re Learning now.  Remember that you’re Living in one corner of the Backwoods of the Galaxy, which is an infinitesimally small portion of the Universe.  So don’t be surprised if you meet Entities that you won’t find in your bathroom mirror, even during your worst hangover.

The folks in the picture Live here; who knows what the folks on Arcturus look like, or the folks who Live in the Center of the Earth.  Of course it’s all Metaphor anyway; in the best of circumstances All of our senses take in such a tiny fraction of what’s going on, and that’s in 3D where Time and Space can be pixellated.  Plus, y’know, we’re All One, so we’re only Seeing or Feeling parts of ourself.

If you’re having trouble finding the Open Door, look for any place where you have any sense of being a Victim, any situation in your Life that you feel like you didn’t Choose, anything you Don’t Want.  Those are the places where you Believe in Fate rather than your own Power.  Remarkable Miracles await you if you dare to step into those closets and Transform their contents.  The Door are Open.

The Rose above the Sky

May 9, 2017

Let’s look a little more at that Grand Quintile.  Here’s one without all of the other Action in its chart…

It’s a Pentagram, traditional symbol of Magic.  It’s actually pointing down, which sometimes implies Black Magic.  But as we said in the previous post, the whole diagram will turn upside down in twelve hours, so there’s little meaningfully permanent about the pointing.  If there’s anything to the Black part, it’s bad luck or evil intent for the West Coast of the US, as the chart is even rotated for other locations at the same time.

The Full Moon occurs around 3pm PDT, which is the equivalent of 2pm PST.  Since Hawaii is two hours earlier than Pacific Time, the Sun will be close to directly overhead in Hawaii – and the Pentagram will be pointing straight up.

The classic symbol of five-symmetry is the Rose Family, which includes this Apple (a future Fuji), blooming as we speak…

The Rose and Pentagram have always been associated with Venus and the Heart, because the Zodiacal locations of the Heliacal Rising of Venus over eight years plot a perfect Hexagram.  The “Heliacal Rising” of a planet or Star occurs when it first becomes visible again after being hidden by being too close to the Sun.  The ancients measured the seasons of the year by keeping track of the Heliacal Rising of various Stars.

I read today that the process of Learning floods the brain with a particular protein, and that this protein confuses the brain’s reward center, disrupting Addictions.  The same can apply to Archetypes, since our Karmic or Childhood Programming Unconsciously expects a positive reward when we’re Obedience to an Archetype we’re Entranced to.  Liberation from an Archetype is by far the most important type of Learning, since it’s Life-Changing.  And Entrancing someone to a Archetype, such as Nationalism, would be a good case of Black Magic.

Let’s isolate the Grand Decile.  A Decile Angle is one tenth of the Zodiacal Loop, so a Grand Decile has ten planets equally spaced ’round the Circle…

If that reminds you of a Rose it’s no coincidence; with five-symmetry the double Rose has five petals in each layer.  Fortune, the Tenth Harmonic, is related to Learning mostly through Liberation from Archetypes, as Liberation allows us to respond Neutrally to circumstances and Witness Reality more clearly.  Left-brain Learning, which involves only the accumulation of Information and not Liberation, also clogs the brain’s reward center – Jung always said that people whose primary approach to Life is through Thinking, are irrational, because not being in touch with their Heart, they Act according to their thoughts rather than their Values.

There is a reason why astrology considers the Fifth Harmonic a “Minor” Angle, aside from the fact that you can’t instantly spot them because they share the same Degree of their respective Signs, as you can with “Major” Angles.  It’s much more difficult to gain Power Over someone who runs their Life from their Heart rather than their “Head.”  Thinking is usually associated with the Head because Left-Brain Mythology attributes thought to the brain.  In Energy Reality, thinking is assigned to the Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus, not the brain.

In order to Power-Over a “Head”-centered person, all we need to do is match their Archetypal Programming with our Propaganda or Rhetoric.  To Power-With a Heart-centered person, we need to demonstrate that we share their Values.  We may be able to direct our Propaganda to their Values, but a Heart-centered person is much more likely to be in touch with their Intuition and Instincts, which would allow them to know our Intentions.

The more we uses our Quintiles to Break Free of our Archetypes, the more directly we Witness Reality.  When we’re Entranced by an Archetype, that’s all we see – the rest of the Universe is projected onto the outer screen of the Archetype.  The more Archetypes entangle us, the less we see of what goes on behind the curtain.  It’s the greater detection of Reality which allows the Tenth Harmonic to represent Manifestation – which is more difficult when we can’t see the levers and pulleys and cobwebs and Energies that connect the elements of hardcopy Reality.

Crystals do not exhibit five-symmetry, but there are several Powerful Stones named after the Rose, such as this Rose Quartz, a Stone representing the Heart…

Another “Minor” Angle that we use is the Quincunx, which connects two planets that are five Signs apart, or five twelfths of the way ’round the Loop.  The Fifth Harmonic is Learning, and the Twelfth Harmonic Pattern-Breaking, and the Quincunx combines the two – into Curiosity.  This is the source of Power in the Yin Gate – which, with it’s four Quincunxes arranged in two adjacent Xs, introduces us to Paradox or Non-Dual thinking.

And while the Grand Quintile, if used properly, can lead us to Archetype-Busting, the “Grand Unx” (an “Unx” is one twelfth of something), with twelve planets equally spaced around the Zodiac, will almost certainly Bust up some Archetypes and other Addictions.  Here’s a look at the 16 May chart, when the Moon and the Nodes add the final two aligned Oppositions to the four in our Gods and Goddesses Full Moon chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/gods-and-goddesses-full-moon/) to complete a loose Grand Unx…

We’ve drawn in the Unxes and Quincunxes in light green.  From the Perspective of traditional astrology, there’s a problem with this chart.  The twelve positions vary from 22 to 30 Degrees; that’s eight Degrees of Sensitivity, a span that traditional Astrology would only allow for Major Angles in birth charts.  Even in birth charts, the maximum Sensitivity permitted for Minor Angles is three Degrees.

Well, recall that many times we’ve said that Permanent Curiosity (as in Awe and Wonder rather than “Gotta Figure It Out”) is akin to Love because both eschew Judgment.  If we can break our Addiction to Figuring It Out, the Quincunx actually leads us to this space of Non-Judgment, aka Neutrality, aka Enlightenment, aka Ascension.  Maybe we should call it “Unconditional” Curiosity, to parallel Unconditional Love.  In a Relationship, Love dies when Curiosity is replaced by Certainty and Judgment.

So in our Perspective, there’s nothing Minor about a Quincunx – it’s one of the more Major Angles on Reality.  We can say the same for the the Archetype-Busting Quintile and Unx, and for that matter the Septile.  The Septile (Seventh Harmonic) is about Timing – not wasting our Energy when the moment is not ripe, and Acting Decisively when it is – like France’s own new “JFK” apparently has.  We hope he fares better than JFK did.  Well, it turns out that Timing is critical in everything, including Curiosity and Unconditional Love.  It’s Timing that resolves the unsettling apparent Conflicts between Unconditional Love of Other and Unconditional Love of Self.

So we don’t argue that this chart may not be fully descriptive of the Present Moment come 16 May.  But if the Unx and Quincunx are Major Angles, as we aver, then we regard the chart as fully applicable to Projects begun under its watch, including the Rebirths that have been scheduled for us.

 

Next Up: Responsibility

March 26, 2017

As we said earlier, both of the last two weeks of March are Heavy.  We’ve already introduced the 3/27 New Moon, at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/03/24/big-weeks-iii

Our next big Adventure is about Responsibility, as dwarf planet and Centaur Pholus Stands Still at 1am PDT 28 March, five hours after the New Moon.  A planet is at its Strongest when it Stands Still, and the New Moon will stretch Pholus-Stationary Energy over several weeks afterward.

I doubt that we can explain the difference between Blame and Responsibility too often.  In a Nutshell, Blame looks backward to Assign Cause, while Responsibility looks forward to Change Outcomes.  Yes, there may be some backward-looking to seek potential levers to facilitate Future Change, but it will be incidental.  

Blame is a Universe unto itself, a Closed System.  Like Cause and Effect, when you’re inside the Bubble, you can’t see out of it.  People who can’t see beyond the opaque Wall of Blame often misinterpret the need for Responsibility as “New Age Guilt,” especially as it applies to dis-ease.  Taking Responsibility for our own Health has nothing to do with who or what causes dis-ease.  It has to do with what we do about it in the Future.

In the Greek Iconography, Pholus met his demise as a result of failing to Attend to what was in retrospect The Most Important Thing, and for taking only partial Responsibility for it.  So when we look into the Unconscious for parallels to Pholus what do we find?  While it may be Conscious Disregard, it’s more often Lack of Awareness itself.

If my Bones ache from eating Gluten two days earlier, it may not be easy to make the Connection.  If my sinuses flush from eating Sugar, will I believe I’m coming down with a cold and, through my thoughts and Emotional response, actually Create a cold?  It’s not like there are ever any shortages of cold germs – it’s my Vulnerability that can make the difference, including my Emotional Vulnerability.

With an Infinity of factors to Take Responsibility for, how do we Discover or Decide which ones to Pay Attention to, and which ones are The Most Important – especially since becoming Conscious of an Infinity of factors sounds impossible?  We hone our Intuition; it’s the only tool we have that can cover the waterfront.  

Long ago when I studied Time Management, the bottom line was that it was necessary to always have a handle on, and Attend to, The Most Important Thing.  What they didn’t Teach, but what was obvious to me, was that in order to know what The Most Important Thing is, we need to keep our Intuition sharp.  And in order to sense any relevant Intuition, we’d need to be Relaxed.  So it turns out that The Most Important Thing is to be Relaxed.

For which PIAVA is well suited – if we Trust it.  “The Gods” don’t appreciate it if we PIAVA the same thing over and over again without first Changing the Subject, Paying Attention, and adjusting our PIAVA accordingly.  So Trusting that our PIAVAs are in the right queue is important.  Luckily, asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, Stands Still at 2am PDT on 1 April (no foolin’), so we get good practice here.

So with Pholus Standing Still our best bet may be to PIAVA something on the order of…

“Great Spirit, please Grant me Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility for, and Help me know how to do it best.”

“I Wonder how I might Always Pay Attention to my Intuition and Take Full Responsibility for Acting accordingly.”

On 31 March (2am PDT), dwarf planet Quaoar Stands Still.  Pholus and Quaoar have been traveling together for a long time, and their Stations have been near-simultaneous, and near to the Galactic Center.  Quaoar is about our Survival Guidance.  When the World is Stable, Survival Guidance comes from the Ancestors.  When the World is Changing Rapidly, as it is now, we also need our Intuition.

We’re also aided here by Saturn, which in turn Stands Still on 5 April (10pm PDT).  That’s more than a week away, with two other Stations in between, so normally we’d keep our focus on the near term.  But Saturn is actually Stationary as we speak, within two arcminutes of its ultimate Station.  I have no doubt that this is why we’ve been called to talk a lot about The Most Important Thing, which is Saturn’s Mantra.

We don’t like to Abandon our Secondary Priorities, because they’re our Fallbacks should our First Priority encounter difficulty.  But when Saturn is Lit Up, the message is that our Backup Priorities will Take Care of Themselves for a while, so we don’t need to worry about putting them on the back shelf – they’ll be waiting for us when we get around to picking them up again.

So this week the program tells us that The Most Important Thing is to Trust that all Prayers are answered while we PIAVA to have our Intuition working flawlessly to keep us Informed about what we need to Take Full Responsibility For in order to ensure our Survival, and how to accomplish exactly that.

Now, bear in mind (it’s part of PIAVA actually) that when we are ready to Receive, the Universe gives us exactly what we Need.  When we aren’t ready to Receive, the Universe gives us Information about Why We Aren’t Ready.  So yes, we Trust our PIAVAs, but when they don’t seem to “deliver,” we Take Full Responsibility for Paying Attention to see what they did deliver, because whatever that was, it contains the Information we need to adjust our PIAVA so we Ask for what we are ready to Receive.

Theta Healing is particularly good at this, because it can provide instant feedback, so we don’t need to wait a day or so after Changing the Subject, before we Pay Attention.  A Theta Healing might be…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Receive Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For, and how to do exactly that.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

When you Command “Show Me!” you should See the Clarity being “Delivered” – or, you may Feel it or Know it or Hear it, or Automatic-Write it – whatever Channel your Intuition works best in.  Or, you’ll See or Feel what else you need to add to your PIAVA.  For instance, you might Feel a sense of Inadequacy, and need to modify your PIAVA to something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Worthy of Receiving Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For and how to do exactly that, and that I Receive it.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

Another Intense Week IV

November 16, 2016

Astrologically, this week is one of the more prominent with regard to “an increase of chaotic events,” and “objective” Reality has a good share of them to match.  So this is timely…

Saturn II

August 10, 2016

Excerpted from the previous post…

(2) We’re used to thinking of Saturn as having crisp Edges and Defined Boundaries.  But this Saturn Station is a little different.  Have you noticed more things moving out of the corner of your eye, and there’s “nothing” there when you look in that direction?  How about the Spiders.  What’s being Defined here is that the Veil is thinning yet more.  Spider Grandmother weaves the Web of Reality, and She’s busy making adjustments.  More about this later.

(2) Neptune Initiating the South Node, as it did in January 2000.

Okay, it’s later…  

The 1/1/2000 chart suggested Heavy Traffic between Consciousness and the Unconscious, which we interpreted at the time as the “Loss of the Veil.”  The Veil separates what we regard as “Us” from what we regard as “Other,” and separates what we regard as “Reality” from what we regard as “Not Real” or, if our Reality is more Open, what we regard as “the Other Side” – that which we know to be Real, but about which we know not much.

The 1/16/2000 Initiation of the South Node by Neptune occurred at 4 Pisces, which is about heavy traffic on an isthmus.

I recommend the movie Ghost (Whoopie, Demi, Patrick), and the third volume of Ursula Le Guin’s six-volume Earthsea Trilogy (The Farthest Shore) as excellent sources that collaborate my Experience, Intuition, and Book-Learnin’.  All of which are thoroughly Enjoyable.  There are many sources on Near-Death Experiences and on the “Little People.”  And we shouldn’t neglect Robert Moss, starting with The Three Only Things.

We’re in the dregs of the Void phase of the current Neptune-South Node Cycle, but the new Cycle is obviously (to me at least) on its way in.  This one is about Flying Blind, which I interpret as Trusting our Intuition more than our Knowledge.  

The New Cycle doesn’t begin till 3 October 2016, at 10 Pisces.  Neptune remains Retrograde till 19 October.  Since we use the Mean Nodes, they’re always Retrograde, so we don’t get a multiple crossing.

Of course I advocate Trusting our Intuition in most situations anyway, but it’s particularly relevant when in New Territory, as we are now.  As Ursula says, “Rules Change in the Reaches.”  

For those of us who were programmed to be “evidence-based” in our approach to Life, the Universe, and Everything, there’s one additional note that must be added.  Suppose your Knowledge indicates one Direction and your Intuition another, and you Choose to follow your Intuition – and it proves to be the wrong Direction.  Time to get a couple of chairs and have a talk with yourself.

First question for this interview: “What was your Real Objective?”  Switch chairs before you answer.  You may be on the brink of a Big Discovery about how you Relate to the Unconscious.  We didn’t mention it explicitly in the previous post, but Easy Revision of our Beliefs is part of item (8).  When our Beliefs Change, our “Assemblage Point” and our Identity shift, and new Channels open between our Consciousness and the Unconscious.

At the very least, you may have been moving toward Conflicting Objectives, and you need to stop and do one of Dr. Kim’s “Yes-And” exercises, or follow Dr. Perls’s original suggestion and simply Ask yourself, what’s the Positive side of each of your Conflicting Objectives, and how can you reorganize to Collaborate with yourself toward Win-Win.

Or, if you were on a conceptual map where the virtual street follow a N/S-E/W grid and your Destination was to the virtual northeast, your Knowledge may have wanted to start to the east, while your Intuition may have been pointing out to you that east will work, but only for a little while, then you have to turn north.  Maybe it wasn’t your Objectives that Conflicted, only your route.  No matter where you’re going, you always have to Ask frequently, “Is this still the right Direction?”

All that may be more than enough, but if you aren’t fully Engaged in following those threads, you could Ask “What have I Learned about my Intuition?”  “That it was wrong” is not a valid answer – if you get that one, Change it to “That I need more Practice with it.”

It’s also relevant to Ask, “What have I PIAVAed lately?”  This could well be part of a Pay Attention phase from a PIAVA.  Remember that you’re PIAVAing all the time, whether you’re Consciously assembling a formal PIAVA or not.  Just as an example, last time you said “It’s Cold in here,” was there an implied “I Wish it was Warmer” underneath it?
