Self-Sovereignty

April 8, 2019

Though the 5 April Sovereignty New Moon (see previous post) remains in full effect, we’re also well into a new Time Province, the astrohighlights of which are…

  • 4-8 April brings an Emphasis on Sustainability, which includes our Ability and Willingness to drop that which is Unnecessary, since Sustenance is the other side of the Resilience Coin.  (Ceres Station in 15 Sagittarius, 8 April 9:30 pm PDT.)  Sagittarius 15 is the location of the “Great Attractor,” which is an unknown Source of Cosmic Suction that’s pulling our Galaxy and many others toward itself.
  • 3-10 April Challenges us to Let Go of the Limitations that Inhibit us from Expanding in all Directions – our Horizons, our Perspectives, our Relationships, our Life, and in particular, Limitations on our Loving Attention to the Guidance provided by our Emotions and Instincts.  (Jupiter Station in 25 Sagittarius, 10 April, 10am PDT, Opposed by the Moon.)
  • 6-13 April is likely to see issues of Vitality becoming prominent.  An excellent time to Expand our notions about Healing.  What Inhibits or Prevents our own Healing?  Who taught us that there were Limits to Healing?  Have we begun to Realize how wrong they were?  (Varuna Station in 1 Leo, 13 April, 10:30 am PDT.)
  • 9-16 April will find us Exploring Practical issues around our Sovereignty.  If we Respond with Obedience to those who want us to follow Their Rules, how does that make us Feel?  How often do we get Practice Responding Differently?  Do we even Notice when we’re Obeying our own Programming, our Shoulds?  Maybe it’s time to Practice shaking things up a little, starting with places where the Impact won’t be too Consequential.  Self-Sovereignty is already Critically important, and it will only become more so.  (Hylonome Station in 15 Capricorn, 16 April, 4:30 pm PDT.)

Here’s an excerpt from Dan Scranton’s recent Channeling on this…

https://danielscranton.com/self-expression-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“So many humans are afraid to express themselves as they truly are, because of a fear of backlash, whether from parents, friends, co-workers, teachers, or even government officials.  There are so many beings on your world that you give your power away to.  There are so many other humans that have positions of authority and so many humans who feel afraid to be who they really are because of what could happen as a result.

“And those fears really are about what has happened already in other lifetimes, but you all don’t know that.  And so, there are many awakened individuals now who are the trailblazers in terms of their willingness to be unique and different and in terms of their willingness to express themselves in spite of what might happen if the wrong person or people were to find out.  That’s the type of courage humanity needs right now.”

Very much an underscore on the 5 April New Moon.

Once we get past the Ides of April, we enter what we’ve referred to as “Dark Days.”  That of course is Optional, but many astrologers – those prefer to stoke Egos and Fear, will label it so and many people – those who cower before Growth, will Experience it so.  Simply put, the theme of the last half of April is The Most Important Thing is the Transformation of our Self-Confidence.  Really all we have to do, is Remember to Refuse to Believe the content of our Doubts.  We’ll talk more about this as the month proceeds.

No Limits IV

March 4, 2019

The third chart that’s relevant to this week, in addition to…

  • The 5 March (3:30 pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in 24 Gemini (see No Limits II, two posts ago)
  • The 6 March (8am PST) New Moon in 16 Pisces (see No Limits III, the previous post)

…is the chart for the 5 March (10:30 am PST) Station of Mercury in 30 Pisces, which also covers the 6 March (12:30 pm PST) Entry of Uranus into Taurus.  This third chart looks like so…

Mercury is about Communication.  When it goes Retrograde, as it’s doing now, the standard interpretation is that Travel becomes Difficult.  Like other arenas, Consciousness fixes so much of our would-be Fate.  If you’ve already scheduled Travel for March, be mindful that there could be hiccups, and if you meet them with Humor and the Expectation that they’ll be minor, they’ll probably prove to be so.  Every thought is a Prayer after all.  Ruminating on the Downside Empowers it, especially with Chaos Lit Up – Chaos can represent Unlimited Potential for Hassle if we Invite it to.

Mercury comes up to within a half Degree of the Start-Over Place, the Cusp of Aries (which symbolizes Creative Energy).  Now it’s turning about and will mosey back to the Midpoint of Pisces (which represents Letting Go of Emotions) at the end of March.  The Big Deal here is that its Station reaches across the aisle and Conjoins recently-Ensconced-in-Aries Chiron, the Adept of Converting Despair to Miracle.  This will color the entire three weeks of Mercury’s Regression.

The Message is that we want to be Ready to Poor-Sweetheart any Emotional setbacks we encounter in March.  That should get Easier after the Equinox, when asteroid Atropos (Endings) Enters Pisces.  Poor-Sweethearting our Feelings is very different from Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding them, even though Poor-Sweethearting only takes a few minutes.  Poor-Sweethearting Acknowledges them Respectfully and Compassionately, and when the Human Unit is working properly, that’s all that’s necessary.

If we’re dealing with Karmic Held Emotions, we’ll find more homework – for instance, “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’re Dying, don’t you” or “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’d rather Die than Experience that again, don’t you.”  But we may be surprised at how Powerful even that is.

And of course, if we are in the habit or Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding all or some of our Emotions, we could spend a lot of time floundering around not Knowing what the heck is happening to us.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know what you’re Feeling, do you” might be our new anthem.

Mercury-Chiron also makes a Square (Challenge) to Pholus-Ixion on the Cusp of Capricorn.  Pholus (our Desire or Need to Get Serious about Owning our Self-Sabotage) in Capricorn (Just Fix It!) is in the process of detaching itself from dwarf planet Ixion (our Forbidden Genius) which is still in Sagittarius (The Way Out Is To Let Go).  This Promises Impatience, as Pholus chomps at the bit while Ixion Lingers over finding and cutting the last few bits of the Shame that has kept It in Chains.

Uranus, symbol for Soul, Enters Taurus 4½ hours after the New Moon, telling us that we may Need to Address Health Issues before the Soul can Enter Flesh in its Full Glory (Trumpets, Chorus of Angels, etc).  Our Life Force (Varuna) is Challenged (T-Square) by the Need to Resolve any Apparent Conflict (Opposition) between the Rebirth (Haumea) available when we Adjust our Boundaries (Pallas) to Reflect our Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), and our Soul’s Purpose (Uranus).

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today reflects this Life Force and Health theme…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/03/04/cellular-muck-is-out-of-here/

In other words, you’re probably Well Aware of the Habit Patterns that Impact your Vitality, but so far you haven’t Motivated yourself enough to Change them.  But now it’s Time to quit procrastinating, and Change your Lifestyle.  Your Lack of Motivation indicates that you need to reach across the Low Stone Wall and Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious.

R.J. Stewart (in The Underworld Initiation: A Journey Toward Psychic Transformation) tells us that this model of Consciousness-Unconsciousness is wrong, at least relative to Gaelic Tradition.  What we see as the Unconscious is actually Another, very Real, World.  A Parallel Life as it were, if we Personalize it.  Which is fine – rather than Enlisting “the Unconscious” we can Enlist our Parallel!  That has Advantages anyway.

We Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious, and of our Parallels and Guides and Angels, by using PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The “V,” for Visualization, will be handy here.  Alternatively or Additionally, you can also “Feelize” – Feeling Into A Future instead of Seeing it in your “mind’s Eye.”  Our Objective is a Healthy and Vigorous Body for our Soul to use as its Vehicle.  The more time we can spend Seeing ourself cast in that Image and/or Feeling what we’ll Feel when we arrive there, the better.  We could even Imagine ourself Changing the World by Speaking Clearly and Powerfully, or by Extending our Power through our Hara.

The point is that we want to Psychically Practice Being who we need to Become, and we want to make it a major Agenda item on our daily schedule.  This Practice is likely to Awaken Fears that we’ve been Hiding from ourself, probably Fears related to the way our Forbidden Genius was Shamed into Hiding.  Theta Healing would be a good PIAVA to use on these Fears – “God/Goddess, I Command that I Choose to Conclude these Fear Timelines, Lovingly, Rapidly, and Safely.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done!  Thank you God/Goddess!  Show me!”

We’re referring here to the Merger of Sedna (Fear) and Lachesis (Consciously Choosing to End a Timeline) which ties together the Mercury Station, the Uranus Sign Change, our Health Challenge, and the Recovery of our Forbidden Genius.  We can look forward to a Momentous March!

“Experiments show that the focus of our attention changes reality itself and suggest that we live in an interactive universe.”  Gregg Braden, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief, p.x.

We want to add a comment to these, however.  They refer to Eating Organic Food, but based on my Experience and on everything else I know, Eating Organic is not quite enough, as part of the lethality of the SAD or Standard American Diet, is Packaged Food, Organic or Otherwise.  So it’s more about Eating Organic Fruits and Vegetables and Paying Attention to Fiber, though the Diabetes article advises that if you’re Eating Meat, Eggs, and/or Dairy, make those Organic as well.  And be Cautious with All Packaged food.  Restaurants, unless they’re Organic, become anathema.

It’s not generally known, but almost all “conventional” (ie, Non-Organic) Grains and Sugars are saturated with Glyphosate (Roundup) immediately before harvest, leaving them highly contaminated.  As an FDA-certified Antibiotic, Glyphosate, by allowing only your most destructive gut flora to survive, literally Eats your stomach lining, which is (or was) the Front Line of your Immune System.  If for any reason you Avoid Gluten, you may have noticed that it’s almost impossible to find Organic Gluten-Free Grains.  These people – https://www.happycampersgf.com/ – are a welcome exception.

If you know your Local Farmers, it doesn’t have to be Certified Organic (which is expensive), it just has to use Organic Methods and eschew Toxic Chemicals.  To Resolve Apparent Conflict between the Rebirth available when we Adjust our Boundaries to Reflect our Heart’s Truth and our Soul’s Purpose, we may have to Adjust our Budget Priorities, and/or Get Creative about how we Obtain our Food.  The Environmental Working Group (https://www.ewg.org/) and the Cornucopia Institute (https://www.cornucopia.org/) may be helpful.

Fire, Earth & Air 4

November 2, 2018

Whoa, speaking of the Life Force and Freud’s Death Drive, did I ever get hit today with a slab of the latter!  It wasn’t about “I’d rather Die than Feel that!” but “I’d rather Die than go through that again – Just Shoot Me Now.”  Maybe that’s Depression.  It certainly leaned toward Rage, with Powerlessness added.  The sense that the situation is Intolerable, all Exits are blocked, and just bailing out is the best course, that the Negative Rewards of the current path far outweigh the Positive Possibilities of all of the rest of the Lifetime.

While I’ve thankfully mostly Forgotten, this was a very familiar Emotion from my Childhood, and certainly historically Related to Abuse.  What Triggered the episode was a vivid picture in my Imagination of what the Digital Age will be like if the Present Trends aren’t reversed – Government and Business united with the purpose of harvesting every scrap of joie de vivre from “Commoners” and every scrap of Wealth left in the Commons.  The way ICE has been treating Children, and the Department of Education has been treating Student Loans.

Fortunately, these Varuna-Station Energies are Self-Resolving Challenges, and while the Experience was vivid, it wasn’t all-consuming, and faded in Intensity fairly quickly, especially after I Recovered enough to Remember that the Patriarchy is Dying, and to Poor-Sweetheart my Inner Child.  So it was clearly a Rooting-Out of the dregs of that colossal Victimization Energy that has characterized Colonialism since at least 1492, and other forms of Abuse since Forever.

As we’ve said many times, Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp Karma.  Every time we Re-Experience our Traumas it is an Opportunity to Let Go of our Attachment to them.  For the first few zillion recurrences, we have so little Chance to Realize and Act.  But eventually comes the Dawn.  And every time any one of us makes the Transition from Victim to Choice, and from Self to Whole, we reinforce the Global Transformation.

Stretching our Sensitivity to five Degrees is perfectly legitimate if we shift our Perspective from What We’re Experiencing to What We’re Initiating, and this is probably never a bad idea.  If we make this shift with the Varuna-Station chart, it includes a Grand Sextile, one of the most Blessed of astrological Configurations…

We add Chiron – Pain and Miracles, certainly Who visited me today.  The Trine (long blue lines) is about “dumb-luck” Blessings, they happen to us, without Invitation.  The Grand Sextile includes two Grand Trines.  But the Sextile (shorter blue lines) is a Blessing that keeps on Giving, once we kick-start it with our own Personal Effort.  A Grand Sextile Energizes a Virtuous Spiral, where one Effort supports all the Others.

The Spokes in this one are…

  • Varuna-North Node… our Mission Energizing and Energized by the Life Force
  • Lachesis… Choosing when to Change Timelines, and Juno, the Meristem of Consciousness
  • Chiron… Self-Empathy
  • South Node… Held Emotions and Hidden Skills
  • Mercury… Intellect/Communication, and Jupiter… Expansion
  • Makemake/Manifestation… Aletheia/Truth… and Pallas/Boundaries

The Meristem is the growing tip of a Plant tissue, comprising the botanical equivalent of Stem Cells.  Imagine these six Energies all Operating Collaboratively and Synergistically in your Life.  While this Configuration will last only several days, nothing prevents us from capturing the Energy and Embedding it into our Life.  Do that with your Intention and Imagination.  It might help spur your Imagination to start with one facet of your Life (such as Health, Freedom, Abundance, whatever you’re working on), but you can do the same with many different facets, and then with your Life As A Whole.

If we don’t “borrow” Chiron by stretching our Sensitivity, the Vacancy in the Almost-Grand-Sextile is 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature.”  Rudhyar’s take is “The capacity to look objectively at oneself and others.”  We need to add “with Levity” – Angels can Fly because they take themselves Lightly.

A final Configuration that we should consider in the Varuna-Station chart is one that we might call a “Cat’s Cradle”…

It consists of four Interlocking Yods (“Pay Attention!”) that Emphasize four of its corners, but more importantly, it’s a nest of four Interlocking Quincunxes.  A Quincunx is the Angle formed when two planets are five (“Quin”) Signs (“unx,” because there are twelve of them) apart.  The Quincunx embodies Curiosity, preferably “Permanent” Curiosity, as in Awe and Wonder.  “Left-brain” Curiosity, the sort that is compelled to Solve the Puzzle, encages the World and Freezes it.  It is Anti-Life.

“Right-brain” Curiosity on the other hand – Awe and Wonder – evokes Spirit.  It Recognizes the Living Mystery and is Humbled before it.  Among Faith, Hope, and Love, the greatest of these is Love.  Why?  Because it eschews Judgment.  Right-brain Curiosity also eschews Judgment.  Love fades when Conclusions replace Curiosity – even when the Conclusions are Positive.

We celebrate Trine Bridges and Quincunx Bridges when they create Easy Paths across a T-Square.  The Diamond Star itself is a T-Square with two Trine Bridges.  Here we have just one Square, but what a Celebration of alternate Easy Paths, practically an inverted geodesic dome!  The Challenge (Square) is presented by the Relationship between…

The Most Important Thing is our Survival Instincts (Saturn-Quaoar)

and…

The Truth Is That We Have Encaged What We Are Capable of Creating (Aletheia-Pallas-Makemake).

My Depressive Life-Suppressing Colonial and Fascist Image of the Digital Age is what I will Manifest if I don’t substitute an Image that Supports Life and Freedom and Empathy and Compassion and Collaboration and Cooperation.  And my Manifestation, in whichever form, will be a tiny but critical piece of the Global Co-Creation.

The Digital Age – which begins in earnest in late 2020 and runs for a Century and a half – begins with the first of seven consecutive Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Air Signs.  Jupiter (Expansion) and Saturn (Contraction), both Social planets, govern Economic Activity.  For additional detail see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/02/19/winding-down-the-industrial-era/

Prior to the Digital Age, Earth-Sign Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions characterized the Industrial Age that ended in 1980.  Efforts to revive it, with its focus on the manipulation of Matter, are doomed to failure.  In Linear Time its Timeline has Expired. 

A series of 22nd-Century Conjunctions in Water Signs follows the Digital Age.  Like the Bugis, Huper culture may become Water-based, as sea levels rise.  And Economic Activity may revolve around the Scarcity of Fresh Water.

Some relevant perspective from the Sidhe Mariel, in conversation with Huper David Spangler, from Engaging with the Sidhe (p.87-88)…

“Mariel: Joy is part of who we are.  But do you understand and experience it as we do?  Joy for us is not an emotion of happiness but a relationship we have with what might be called the ‘energies of life.’  Joy enhances and at times even makes possible flow and connection…

“It is not something we feel in response to good things happening in our lives.  It is a quality we generate to add to life.  Where there is joy, all other energies flow more gracefully and powerfully.  Thought is enhanced.  Feeling is enhanced.  Presence is enhanced…

“We offer our joy so that you may take it into yourselves and act with greater connectedness and wisdom.  Your challenge is that your connections with the world and with each other are broken.  Joy can help you mend this.

“David: Most people, I think, would look at the state of humanity and of the world and not feel joyous.  In fact, people can get angry with those who feel joy, feeling they are not serious enough or grounded enough.  How can you be joyous, they ask, when there is so much suffering, so much pain, so much anger and evil in the world?

“Mariel: I understand.  But I would simply repeat that this is a mistaken understanding of what joy is.  You confuse it with happiness or pleasure, with things going as you want them to.  It is a reaction.  For us, it is an action.  It is a gift.  It is a flowing out of who we are.  It is a recognition that if we wish life to go smoothly and if we wish to be as connected as possible, we must do something to allow this.  What we do is joy.

“This is not just a Sidhe ability.  It is your ability, too.  It comes from a loving heart.  You need to change your thinking about the nature of joy, and perhaps my words will help in this regard.  We do not wish you to deny or overlook the darkness and brokenness in your world.  Joy isn’t a turning away of your vision to see only what is pleasing and beautiful.  Joy is a power, perhaps second only to love.

“Love defines and shapes the path forward, hope opens the gates to take that path, and joy strengthens and empowers your walking.  None of these things are emotions alone, certainly not in the simple way you define emotions.  They are powers.  They govern how things proceed, how things act.  They affect the probability of connection and the likelihood of graceful flow and exchange.  They make life possible.

“Do not underestimate joy nor deny it in the face of evil.  Joy is the fire of fiery hope; it is the power you need to confront the darkness coming to the surface of your world.  We are joy because we choose to be.  We choose to generate it.  This is a choice you can make, too.  It is a choice not of how you will see your world but of how you will see yourself and your own capabilities.”

Fire, Earth & Air 3

November 1, 2018

Dunno about you, but my PIAVAs for Health and Healing seem to be working!  I’m very glad to have the previous post as a Guide, so I can Recognize the “Healing Crises” and Tap out the Fear before it locks itself into my Cells.  Whether youalls get anything out of these posts or not, they’re often tremendously useful for me!

My initial scan of the second Diamond Star in the 2 November (3pm PDT) Varuna-Station chart, tells me that it’s a Self-Resolving Challenge about how the Intellect isn’t the right tool for Growing our Consciousness.  But as anyone who’s read more than two of these posts knows, that’s a bias of mine from the beginning.  So if that’s all that there is in the Configuration, I won’t be Learning anything from it.  Let’s see if I can Open Up to new Growth like I have from the Uranus Diamond Star…

This second Diamond Star focuses on “OR10,” our shortcut name for the unnamed dwarf planet and Plutoid “2007 OR10” or “225088” – these are identifying conventions used for Minor Planets before they are named. 

I associate OR10 with Intrusive Memories.  It’s been traveling closely with Nessus (Abuse and Privilege), so it’s been a major factor in the #MeToo movement.  These two were within three Degrees off and on between March 2010 and February 2018.  We’re no longer in that phase, but it was recent enough that Abuse Memories may still Intrude, or that Intruding Memories might seem Abusive. 

For instance, today I happened to think about a former colleague who was mildly politically Abusive by claiming that the work of a committee we were both on was “his” work rather than the committee’s.  That was many decades ago, and I don’t think about this event very often.  So is it somehow relevant to my Life today, or just a random interjection?

Hmmm.  Yesterday a friend was Angered by their misinterpretation of an overheard conversation that I had with a third person.  They assumed that what they heard meant that I was exercising Privilege in a way that was Abusive to them, which wasn’t at all the case.  Curious.  In general, Intrusive Memories needn’t be about Abuse.  They could be about Past Glories, for instance.  They probably Relate to the Present Moment somehow, though perhaps through a Funhouse Mirror, as Extrusions from the Unconscious often do.

This OR10 Challenge (T-Square) bestrides the Opposition (Duality) between Mentality (Mercury) and Timeline Duration (Lachesis).  The usual Duality we’d associate with Mentality and Timelines, is whether we’re a Victim of our Timelines, or Choose them ourself.  Or Recognize that we’ve (somehow) Chosen them ourself, if we Accept that Responsibility.

For instance, when my then-colleague stole credit for our committee’s work, it reinforced my Programming that People can’t be Trusted.  I was Victim to that Timeline.  I was thinking today about how much I might need to protect my house from Halloween “Tricks,” and deciding that the people I live among now seem more Community-oriented, and that I should let them prove to me that I need to Protect myself from them.

So while I didn’t make a hard and fast vow, and wasn’t thinking of it as a Timeline, I did today decide to End that Timeline about not Trusting People.  So the seemingly random Memory was probably an invitation to continue Mistrusting.  When I mentioned my Unbidden thought to a friend and explained a little context to them, their Response was “New Yorkers do that” (make Egoic claims), in a sense forgiving my ex-colleague for just Living out their own Programming.

While they’re not within our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, Mercury is Merged with Jupiter/Expansion (4½ Degrees), and Lachesis is Merged with Juno/the Edges of Consciousness (4 Degrees).  These Connections certainly apply to my Experience with Healing, as I’m Intending to End Self-Sabotaging Timelines by maintaining my Consciousness that they are in fact Self-Sabotaging.  Four-five Degrees is plenty close enough to impact any new Projects we’re starting under this Influence – such as Starting a new Health Regime, or Exploring the possibility of Trusting People. 

Diamond Stars are Self-Resolving Challenges.  The Grace (blue triangles) in this one has to do with the Health Thing (Varuna-North Node) and The Truth About How We Need To Adjust Our Boundaries In Order To Manifest What We Want (Alethia-Pallas-Makemake).  Which pretty much sums up the Story, doesn’t it.

Fire, Earth & Air 2

October 29, 2018

Whether you succeed in moving your Consciousness into your Discomfort, or just your Attention, it’s important to Soften and Warm around it.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  We tend to tense up around Pain and Discomfort, but it’s Local Softness, Warmth, and Relaxation that facilitate Blood Flow and Healing.

On 6 November Uranus (Soul) Retrogrades back into Aries.  We’ve been Experimenting with Soul embedding deeper into Matter since mid-May as Uranus tested Taurus.  Now we go back and debrief Uranus in Aries, which we Lived from 2011 till last May.  Uranus in Aries was about beginning a new, more Mysterious Relationship between our Ego and our Soul.  We’ve gotten a good start on that project.  With Uranus in Taurus we’ve been making Changes in our everyday Life and Beliefs, to better support this new Rapport and Integration.

Uranus in Aries, from 6 November (11am PST) till March 2019, gives us the Opportunity to review what we’ve Learned about Soul and Ego since 2011, and to compare and contrast that with what we’ve Learned since May about their Integration.  The 2 November Varuna Station (3pm PDT) at 3 Leo highlights the Uranus Sign Change like so…

The Uranus Diamond Square is one of two in the Varuna-Station chart.  A Diamond Square represents a Challenge that pretty much Resolves itself, partly by making a Big Deal out of the Challenge (the Yod or green wedge pointing at Uranus; a Yod means “Pay Attention”), but mostly because of the Truss Bridge (blue triangles, signifying Cooperation and Blessings) connecting the Yod and the Challenge (the red triangle or T-Square).

Sitting on the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime), Varuna emphasizes the Physical and Magical elements of our Transition from Self-Sabotaging Patterns (South Node or Karma) to Accomplishing our Mission.  As the Life Force, Varuna describes the state of our Health, and it describes how well we Embody the process of Animating Matter. 

As the two quotes in the previous post aver, we Hupers who Strive for greater Consciousness stand somewhere between the always-in-the-Present-Moment Natural World and the Robot-Hupers who Live their Karma without ever questioning it.  Is that a Judgment?  Inferno aside, it’s probably a Perspective that has a grain of Truth.  As Strivers, though, it is upon us to have Compassion for those “Robot-Hupers” – there but for Grace go we. 

Mass Hypnosis, aka Culture, does produce Robot-Hupers, to one degree or another.  And with few exceptions, when someone tells me they’re Enlightened – ie, they’ve Cleared all of their Karma, I don’t actually Believe them, because only the Ego would so boast.  We all know full well how much Robot we still have within us – or we wouldn’t be Striving for greater Consciousness.

As last week’s Sappho/Self-Love Station triggered our Self-Doubt, giving us the Opportunity to bring more of that into Consciousness where it can be Loved into Oblivion, so this week’s Varuna/Life-Force Station will trigger our Death Drive.  A definition of Addiction is a Behavior which we keep doing even after it has obviously been Harmful to us.  Not all Addictions Kill, but many do.  Sugar does Kill.

Often our Death Drive is split off from our Everyday Self; we repeat our Addiction while either conveniently “forgetting” that it can Kill us, or while Remembering that it can and doing it anyway, sometimes while Feeling Guilty.  Some say that it’s not the Addiction that Harms us, but the Guilt – but it can be either or both.  And frequently our “convenient forgetting” is not Conscious, but a split in our Consciousness – part of us knows its Harmful and part of us doesn’t, and the two parts may not talk be on the same Facebook page.

The part of us that “Forgets” is a Robot part of us, not so much from Culture, but from Regression.  There was a time in our Childhood (or our Other Lifetimes, but is it ever not both?) when the Addiction Rescued us from Held Emotions, the kind that we’d rather Die than Feel.  That Held Emotion may have been Forbidden by the Culture of our Family of Origin, so that our budding Addiction would have been Positively Rewarded and/or even Encouraged.

Of course Soul planned all that, to set up Heuristic circumstances that would help us Get Conscious.

So now our Soul (Uranus) stands on a knife-edge between Pure Matter (Taurus) and pure Spirit (Aries).  As Pure Spirit we would Banish an Addiction with a swish of a Wing.  As Pure Matter we would Merge with the Addiction.  The Addiction would be in our very Cells, beckoning to its compatriots that are still outside our Body to join it.  Cancer and diabetes, both of which Eat Sugar for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, do this. 

Even a Cold can do it.  Have you ever noticed that there’s a Decision Point in “catching” a Cold?  You get the sniffles and you think, “Oh, time to cut back on Dairy” or Gluten or Glyphosate or Sugar or whatever messes with your Mucus Membranes – and you do that, and your sniffles disappear.  But if instead your thoughts are “Oh, I’m getting a Cold,” guess what happens next.  Germs are ever-present; they infect us when we get Vulnerable to them, and don’t when we aren’t.

So the Spiritual Function of this Diamond Star is to Remind us that whatever we can do from Spirit, such as Instant Healing, we can also do in Matter, because we are Spirit.

The Roots that Create the Self-Resolving Blessing (the blue triangles) include Mercury (intellect) and Pallas-Aletheia-Makemake (Boundaries-Truth-Manifestation).  The latter is just what we’ve been talking about – the Truth is that We Set Our Own Boundaries Around What We Allow Ourself to Manifest and What We Don’t.  Is Instant Healing part of our Everyday vocabulary? 

The phrase “Mind Over Matter,” which is often used to describe Instant Healing, is a misnomer.  Mercury is prominent in the other Diamond Star, and as we’ll see when we dissect that, the Intellect’s ample Powers reside in Duality, while both Healing and Growth in Consciousness are Multifarious. 

It’s not Mind that overpowers Matter.  Mind-Air and Matter-Earth are Equal elements of the astrological Wheel.  You could instead say “PIAVA over Matter,” because Intention and Prayer, for example, do have the Power to penetrate the Barrier between Consciousness and the Unconscious, and correct our misinterpretation that Matter is solid and constant.

Our next Province (in Time) runs through 2 November (3pm PDT), while dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force) is Standing Still (Strong).  It’s a complex Province, but the two major Energies are both Self-Resolving Challenges (Diamond Stars).  The key to these Configurations is to Be Aware of what’s being Self-Resolved.  A Diamond Star is like having an excellent Teacher; we’re Inspired to Learn Effortlessly and Profoundly. 

But if we don’t Realize that we’re in School, then we may Enjoy the Resolution but Learn nothing.  The Spiritual Purpose behind all astrological processes is to Teach.  If we’re hanging in there by our fingernails, then we’re just Relieved to see the Province go away.  And if we aren’t Aware of what we’ve just been Taught, the next time a similar Province recurs, we won’t Recognize it as the Old Friend that it is, and we’ll end up hanging by our teeth.

Before we get into the specifics of the Challenges, let’s get some background from David Spangler and his Sidhe friend Mariel.  We introduced the Sidhe back in September’s Hope You’re Rested VII post (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/09/09/hope-youre-rested-vii/).  This is from David’s Engaging with the Sidhe: Conversations Continued, pp.74-5…

“The physical realm is one form of emanation of the cosmos; it existed long before Gaia came into being or descended from its stellar home.  Though it is living, it did not initially produce or sustain life…  It provides a specialized form of consciousness that is important to the Sacred…  It provides an anchor that allows creation to unfold on multiple levels of being and consciousness.

“The strength of this consciousness and the realm that proceeds from it is based on its limits and its focus.  Aeons ago, again long before Gaia came into being, there were those who felt these limits and their focus could be used to accelerate the development of life and consciousness.  Efforts were made to bring life into these realms. 

“Most of these efforts stopped short of a full immersion into the most focused manifestation of this consciousness of matter, but some determined to quicken the life within matter and give it a power of emergence and evolution.  Ultimately, Gaia was one of these beings who pledged to bring life into the cosmos in order that new life might emerge out of it.

“In time, the collective field of souls that are the ancestors of all that is human and Sidhe joined in this effort.  Many of these souls agreed to enter into the depths of matter to serve the arising and quickening of life…  To these beings, this was not a descent into form or substance; this they already possessed in their own way.  It was a taking on of a specialized, limited form of consciousness to expand it from within.  You would see this as entering into matter.

“It was decided that there would be those who would go to the threshold of this consciousness but no further in order to be a lifeline for those who went deeper.  This was their mission and calling, and there was no rejection or refusal on their part of matter or its consciousness and life.”

From here let’s let Michael Roads carry us further, in Entering the Secret World of Nature, pp.104-5.  Note that Michael uses the word “subconscious” to mean what we mean when we use the term “Unconscious”…

“Apart from people like the Kalihari Bushmen and other so-called primitive tribes in their various countries, most of humanity has lost its conscious connection with Nature and the Earth.  The results are dramatic, yet very little is known, recognized, or accepted about this.  Let me shock you!  Neither Nature nor the planet Earth acknowledges the living existence of a subconscious person.  With over ninety percent of humanity living subconsciously, we unwittingly hold back the very evolution of human consciousness.

“Every living creature in Nature is conscious in the moment, and in this we can include the mineral kingdom, thus involving the planet Earth itself.  All Nature and the planet are conscious of consciousness.  Obviously this is not on an intellectual level, but as a living reality.  A person living subconsciously is not conscious of being conscious in the moment.  Sounds odd, but it is a very sobering fact.  It also has a very startling effect…

“If Nature/Earth has no recognition of a person as being conscious, Nature will be utterly uncaring of their welfare . . . they are not part of a greater reality.  And a part is the whole, for there are no parts!  Equally, if Nature recognizes a person as being One with its holistic Self, Nature will not wantonly or accidentally destroy a person with an aware connection of conscious intelligence.”

He goes on the explain that he’s not speaking about anybody’s ideas, he’s speaking of his own Observations of many situations, including many disasters, from a higher Perspective.  He’s also not speaking of Bodies per se, but Souls – he gives the example of a Soul Choosing a disaster as a vehicle to move from one Body to another.

What I’m trying to illustrate here is that the Varuna Station is Merged with (Conjunct) the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime).  So I’m suggesting that the state of our Health may be proportional to the Degree that we are Living our Mission.  Which is not a Judgment, and not a “Blaming the Victim” thing.  The upshot is that we can use any element of our Health that is unsatisfactory as a Clue to where we are Separated from our Mission.

One way to do that would be see which Chakra is involved in our Discomfort, though that can be divertingly intellectual.  One of the major Self-Resolving Challenges in the Varuna Station is Learning that the Intellect is not the tool to use for Exploring Expanded Consciousness.  The reason is pretty simple – the Intellect excels at Duality, but the Unconscious which we aim to Grow Into is Multifarious and Unitary.  Trying to Grow Consciousness using the Intellect is like trying to eat Soup with a fork, or trying to stop a truck with it.

A better way is to drop our Consciousness, in Meditation, directly into the Locus of our Discomfort, and hold it there as long as we can, bringing it back when we catch our Attention beginning to wander.  In his Living in the Heart, Drunvalo Melchizedek Teaches a clever trick…

Assuming your Center of Consciousness is in your Head, when you begin to move your Consciousness into your Discomfort, first move it into your Throat, feeling the relative Softness of the Throat compared to the bony Skull.  From the Throat, check to make sure that to see the Head, you have to Look Up.

Then continue to move to your Discomfort.  On the return trip, which you want to do Consciously rather than just letting your Attention wane away, also stop at the Throat and orient yourself, in particular making sure that your Eyes point forward.

Then, taking advantage of the Self-Resolving Opportunity to be Open To Instant Healing, we can PIAVA that we Become Aware of our Separation from our Mission, and Begin to Gently, Lovingly, and Powerfully Close the Gap.

Empath and Empathy IV

July 2, 2018

Let’s Look at some of the Grace in the Chiron Station chart.  The focus of each of the T-Squares (Challenges) is also a corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings), and each of the Grand Trines is also a Kite (Directed Dumb-Luck Blessings)…

A Trine, which is two planets four Signs apart (the long blue lines), means that the two planets Harmonize so well that we can, and usually do, take it for Granted.  We’d do well to spend a bit of time in Gratitude for our natal and transiting (current-moment) Trines.  Note that two planets with Meanings that seem very Contradictory can, and often do, Trine one another.  The disadvantage of being a Language-based Species is that we inevitably Confuse the Words with their Referents. 

In the Grand Trine between Karma, Varuna, and Moon-Chiron, for instance, we might wonder how Self-Destructive Habits (one meaning for asteroid Karma) and Suffering (one interpretation of Moon-Chiron) can Harmonize with the Life Force (Varuna).

Lots of Opportunities there to Examine our Limiting Beliefs – which in itself is a Blessing.  We might say that if we Discern what is Life-Sustaining from what is Life-Draining (Varuna) to Evaluate our Habits (Karma) to see which Habits we want to Reinforce and which we want to Extinguish, we will get Blessings from the Universe (Trine) to assist us, while this Trine is in effect. 

It’s within three Degrees of Sensitivity (Strongest) from 20 June to 1 September, and Stronger yet when it’s Exact, around 7 July and 11 August, and during the several days prior to Karma’s 20 July Station.

We can often Ease difficult interpretations just by adding “Consciousness of” or “Awareness of” to the beginning of a not-so-positive meaning.  For instance, we can interpret this Grand Trine as something on the order of…

At this time the Universe is Gifting us with Great Harmony between our Awareness of Self-Destructive Habit Patterns (Karma), our Consciousness of and Empathy with Suffering (Moon-Chiron), and our Appreciation of what’s Life-Affirming.

We might see the US’s European-Style Demonstrations about the Antichrist’s Abuse of Central American Children as an example of this.  Demonstrations of this number and vigor are unusual for the US.  In order to find a Compassionate view of the impact on the Kids, who will be scarred for Life, we may have to assume for instance that the Antichrist is Creating a generation of Che Gueveras.  Mexico has already Responded by moving to the left.  We may be able to avoid or postpone a Fourth Reich if the US follows suit.

The Long Game here resides in the Chiron-Varuna Trine, since asteroid Karma is here today and gone tomorrow.  If only our Karma was so fickle.  The Chiron-Varuna Trine is in and out of effect from May 2016 to January 2022, with it’s longest Sustained impact in 2018 (February to October) and 2019-20 (August 2019 to March 2020).  It was Exact in April, and will be again on 16 August, then again in March and September 2019 and February 2020.

We’ve been using Suffering as an interpretation for Chiron because that’s how it usually Feels when we aren’t Conscious that we have Choice.  Of course we usually prefer to look at Awareness of Suffering, and by extension Empathy and Compassion for Suffering, which is often Easily Created with a simple “Poor Sweetheart,” where we step outside of our Identification with Suffering and instead Identify with Compassion.  If we’re ready to Dis-identify with Suffering, Poor-Sweethearting can Pixelate and Reorganize our Universe in a flash, usually so subtly that we barely Notice.  

And of course Varuna can also mean Absence or Weakness in the Life Force.  It’s easy to picture a Square between, say, asteroid Karma and Varuna, as Challenging us to Surrender our Life-Negating Habit Patterns.  And don’t forget that Karma includes our Habit Patterns that Support our Path as well as those that Sabotage us.

This is a Fire Grand Trine, especially if we wait for a few minutes past the Exact Chiron Station, for the Moon to enter Aries.  So our Blessings come directly from Spirit.

The Kite Directs the Energy into Trusting our Ability to Manifest What We Need (Eurydike-Makemake).  In Libra, the Implication is that we don’t need to do this alone.  So we might recast our overall reading as…

At this time the Universe is Gifting us with Great Harmony between our Awareness of Self-Destructive Habit Patterns (Karma), our Consciousness of and Empathy with Suffering (Moon-Chiron), and our Appreciation of what’s Life-Affirming, and Holding this Vibration will Allow us to Create the Reality We Want to Live in.

While the Grand Trine goes away after a while, it’s only our Limiting Beliefs that prevent us from Learning from it how to carry this Vibration with us henceforth.  Try Meditating on a picture of your Self seated in the center of three ropes, one suspended between Self-Sabotage and Self-Support, one between Suffering and Miracles, and one between Regeneration and Decay, while three other people pull our chair toward Self-Support, Miracles, and Regeneration.  How does that Feel in your Body?

The other Grand Trine, in Earth, links Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar (The Most Important Thing is to Respond Fully to our Survival Instincts) with Ceres (Sustainability) and Juno-Uranus (our Soul Coming into Consciousness).  Pholus hasn’t quite finished Sagittarius yet, so it’s unlikely to really get down to Work until October 2019, when it enters Capricorn “for good,” though we get a preview from December through next July.  In Sagittarius it’s still Letting Go of Obsolete Responses, like the ones that our Programming Expected of us – which of course is Necessary before we can step through the Ring-Pass-Not.

The Biggie here is the Uranus-Quaoar Trine, which spans 2017 to 2021, off and on.  This year it was Exact on 11 June, and will be again on 28 October.  We can read this as our Soul telling us what we Need to Survive, or as the process of Clearing Impediments to same.  For instance, if we were taught as kids to always be Nice, how would we have Reacted or Responded when told to board the train to Auschwitz?  Of course in a case like that our Choice may have been to stop Surviving now or stop Surviving in a bit, but the Quaoar question is whether we’re even Aware of our Instincts about Surviving.

Since we don’t see Demonstrations yet about Climate Change with the Vigor that Officially-Sanctioned Child Abuse spawns, we can probably easily tally those who are in contact with their Survival Instincts by seeing who has and hasn’t moved to high ground.

This Grand Trine is telling us that, at this time…

Following (Pholus) Our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) is the most Reliable way (Saturn) for us to bring our Soul (Uranus) into our Awareness (Juno) Permanently (Ceres).  In the context of a Chiron Station, which is all about Healing Suffering, the Suggestion is that Separation from our Soul is what has Created Suffering.

The Kite focuses the Energy toward OR10, or Intrusive Memories.  The Suggestion is that these Memories may Lead us to the places where we have Separated from our Soul most Painfully.  Especially since it’s in Pisces, as Pisces is about Finishing Unfinished Emotional Business.

Gauntlet 1

April 10, 2018

Okay, we’ve started down our next Gauntlet…

  • Varuna (Life Force) Station 11 April 8pm PDT (approx.)
  • Hylonome (Ending Codependence) Station 13 April 9am PDT
  • Veritas (Truth) Station 14 April 7pm PDF
  • Mercury (Communication) Station 15 April 2am PDT
  • Chiron (Poor Sweetheart) Leaves Pisces (Whew, less Emotion now!) and Enters Aries (We’ll talk about that later) 17 April 1am PDT
  • Saturn (The Most Important Thing) Station 17 April 7pm PDT
  • Pluto (Trance Reformation) Station 22 April 8:30 am PDT
  • Chariklo (Self-Confidence) Station 23 April 8am PDT
  • Juno (Edges of Consciousness) Leaves Pisces (Whew, if we’ve been doing our homework, we may not have to Confront so many Held Emotions now) and Enters Aries (Insights become Spiritual rather than Emotional)

I don’t Expect April to be nearly as heavy as the end of March was.  UndeniablySara had a fabulous summary of that…

 https://undeniablysara.com/2018/04/04/today-yesterday-last-week/

In fact we’re already deep into the Life Force (Varuna) Station, when the Life Force should be Strong, for better or worse.  If we’ve been trotting along happily being someone other than who we Really Are or who we Need to Become, then a Stronger Life Force could knock us off of that path into the Weeds.  Just PIAVA that you “Hew Easily to the Path I Need to be on, with Loving and Gentle Transitions” or the like.

Varuna Energy is more than Ancient, more like Archean, so one of the Challenges may be Noticing Resistance to the most Basic of Urges (Breath, Hunger, Elimination, Lust, Freedom to Grow) and finding ways to Embrace them as your Best Friends, Fundamental to Life.  Potty Training.  Masturbating.  Lebensraum and Xenophobia (think Hungary).  Food that actually Serves your Body’s Needs.  Rather than Resisting your Archaen instincts, Celebrate them, Consciously Merge with them and Notice how you’ve been Unconsciously Merged with them already. 

Once long ago I was lying in bed on Psychedelics, and had to pee.  I tried to conceive of it, which Muscles would have to be moved in which ways in order to get up and transport my Body into the water closet.  It was unfathomable.  While I was hopelessly lost in this anatomical maze, my Body just got up and did it without “my” volition.  I was Amazed at how much Intelligence it had, far more than I could muster!  The Experience launched me on a path of Gratitude for the Natural and Respect for Healthy Food.

We’re in the midst of a very Heavy (and long overdue) Transition around Attitudes toward Sex, but in Archean days it was simply about Reproducing.  Lots of Baggage to Let Go of there.  Look at this Exchange, for instance, highlighting Gender Differences that were barely Established in Archean times…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2018/04/08/tony-robbins-suggested-metoo-was-about-victimhood-now-hes-apologizing/

The Earth was not Oxygenated yet in Archean days, so if you have any trouble Breathing, Relax into it.  Of course those are all Metaphors, as Geology, while certainly intriguing, isn’t a lot more definitive than Genesis.  We may well have Experienced most of our Lifetimes in Physical Systems with unrecognizably different Rules.  “In the Reaches” relative to this Planet, as Ursula would put it, though it’s more likely that it’s Earth that’s In the Reaches.

Here’s another interesting Story that takes us back to Archean Times…

https://veganbuddhaguru.wordpress.com/2018/04/03/vegan-mara/

Indian Culture is deep in the roots of Western Cultures.

We’re probably already feeling undercurrents from the Hylonome, Veritas, and Saturn Stations.  It’s not too early to Remember that Saturn calls us to Focus on The Most Important Thing, and Let Go of the Rest.  Letting Go of the Rest is  Scary because it Feels Permanent.  It’s not; it’ll wait patiently in the wings and pop right back into our Life when Saturn is done with us.  We could interpret the overall Energy for the next few days as The Most Important Thing is to find the Truth about the Deep Parts of our Unique Self that Feed our Life Force, shifting on 12 April to The Most Important Thing is to find the Truth about our Yintegrity.

Another Choice

October 31, 2017

When we’re up against out Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, it often feels like We’re Dying, or like We’d Rather Die than have to do that again.  Today, that is likely to be some variation of Giving Away Our Power Again.  There is quite literally a Choice this morning between Claiming Our Self-Sovereignty, and Death – which is of course an Ego Death, as Ego is the only thing that ever Dies.  Well, I know, Ursula says that Coyote is always Dying too, but Coyote is just a symbol for the Ego.

This Portal is compounded by a heavy-duty Full Moon on Friday (10:30 pm PDT) that’s associated with Death – and favored by Death.  (We’ll write about this after Lachesis turns Direct and Varuna turns Retrograde on Wednesday, 9am PDT.)  In other words, Accepting and even PIAVAing an Ego Death (such as something like “Ganeshi, Please Lovingly and Gently Remove All Obstacles to My Accepting and Celebrating this Loss of Identity and Resistance to What Is!”) may be our best course by far, making our “Future” much Easier.  Or we might say, making our escape from Timespace more quicker.

Bottom Line – if you run into any apparently unsolvable issues during the next several days, Recognize that it’s an Opportunity and a Blessing.  An Opportunity to Choose Not To Understand, and to Surrender.  To Let the Universe run itself, without your having to drive.  To Wonder who you might end up Being, once you Let Go of who you thought you were.  Choose the Unknown; it’s a Big Window.  You can sit in the back seat and rubberneck, Enjoying complete Egoless Safety in your Self-Driving Universe.

Lachesis (Choice) turns Direct at 3am PDT 1 November, and Varuna (the Life Force) turns Retro at 9am PDT.  Meanwhile, Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) Initiates Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) at about 9am PDT as well.

The 3 November Full Moon (10:30 pm PDT) at 12 Taurus Sextiles the Lachesis Station, which Conjoins Neptune (Material Confusion, Spiritual Clarity).  There’s much more going on, but along with the Full Moon and Lachesis-Neptune, plus Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) and Juno-Chariklo (Confidence in our Edges), the Fixed Star Canopus completes a Grand Sextile in the Magnetic Signs.

Canopus is the Grest Navigator of the Southern Skies, the South Pole Star.  One of his tasks is Ferrying the Dead to the Underworld, so you can Give him your olde obsolete Habits and Identities and Limitation, so he can recycle them into the building blocks of something more useful.

Choice and Vitality

October 28, 2017

Giving our Power Away to an Idea is seldom a good strategy, but we do it all the time.  If you’ve Given your Power Away to the concept of Fate, for instance, then you’re at its Mercy just now, as asteroid Lachesis (the Fated Length of a Timeline) is Standing Still in the Sky, which makes it very Strong.  If you’ve been gritting your Teeth, this is likely to be what’s going on for you.

Dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force) is also Standing Still and hence very Strong just now.  The Life Force isn’t benign, it’s quite assertive.  If yours is partially blocked, you’re going to Feel very uncomfortable.  If you’re squirming in your chair, or imagining all manner of unpleasant circumstances, you’re probably feeling the Varuna Station.

These Energies continue to Intensify for the next several days, until they peak around 9am PDT 1 November.   The sooner you deal with them Constructively, the better you’ll Feel, and the smoother your Life will run.  If you don’t deal with them Constructively, you may find yourself gritting your teeth and squirming in your chair long beyond 1 November, as each astroevent is an Opportunity to get Clear, and if we don’t use the Opportunity, then we may just not get Clear.

So, how to deal with these Energies Constructively?

Start by recognizing that Fate is an Either/Or.  If you’re invested in the Idea of Fate, then you may need a special dispensation to achieve Free Will.  Either/Ors are always mindstuff.  Nature isn’t Either/Or, it’s Both/And.  No matter what Either you can Dream up, you can find an Or out there in the Natural World.  Yes, Fate Exists.  And yes, Free Will Exists.  If it’s got to be one or the other, you’re trying to Live in the mind, not in the Natural World.

If you Choose to Live in the mind, no Blame.  But the Life Force is probably pushing you pretty hard to broaden your Horizons a bit.  Mind is symbolized by Air, and there are whole Other Worlds symbolized by Fire, Water, and Earth (at the very least).  Those Other Worlds are going to be tugging at your sleeve and nagging at you.  They don’t go away just because you Will them to.

So, instead of being Victimized by the Fated Timelines that have us gritting our teeth, lets Take our Power Back, and Choose to End them.  Radical, eh?  How to do that?  Any old PIAVA (Praying, Intending, Asking, Visualizing/”Feelizing,” Affirming).  You could simply say to no one in particular, but to Everyone, that “I Choose to Let Go of Scarcity.”  Or Poverty, or Loneliness, or Pain, or Stress, or Guilt, or Inadequacy, or Incompetence, or Fear, or Powerlessness, or Frustration, or All of the Above, or Whatever it is that’s inspiring you to grit your teeth.

“Fat Chance!” you say?  Then you’ll want to Let Go of Doubt as well.  If you don’t have a lot of practice with PIAVA then you may not have proven to yourself yet that it works, and works very well.  It can even make Miracles, and often does.  If you don’t know PIAVA at all, I can only ask that you invest some time into studying https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ .

Not that everything you Ask for is going to Show Up or Go Away immediately.  Many of our Limitations are backed up by long histories, perhaps even centuries of Habit-Building.  But we have to start somewhere, and the ideal place to start is to Choose What We Want.  If you look at what you’ve been gritting your teeth over, I think you’ll find that you’ve been Choosing to Keep Your Attention on What You Don’t Want. 

I know, it doesn’t feel like a Choice, but it is.  You can Choose to Put Your Attention on What You Do Want anytime you want to.  Try it for just a minute, and see if you’re still gritting.

If our Life Energy was flowing like the whitewater in a cascading mountain stream, I don’t think we’d be gritting our teeth.  While our Limits are long-suffering Habits, Habits are formed by Repetition.  The only thing we need to do to shift from Focusing on What We Don’t Want to Focusing on What We Do Want, is to start building the Habit of Focusing on What We Do Want, then build reps.

I know, easier said than done, but the key is to Congratulate yourself for Noticing that you’re Focused on What You Don’t Want, because once you Notice, you then have the Power to Choose to Focus on What You Do Want.  The more we Congratulate ourself for Noticing, the sooner we’ll Notice, and the sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to shift to Focusing on What We Do Want.  We could even PIAVA that we begin to Notice every time we’re Focused on What We’d Like to Eschew, and begin to Congratulate ourself for Noticing.

See if that doesn’t begin to Unlock some extra Life Energy.
