Out of one of the most difficult astrological alignments emerges the potentials for profound and potent transformational shifts.
I always prefer the perspective of opportunities, presented from any given experience, rather than focus on the limitations.
With the upcoming Cardinal Grand Cross and Total Lunar Eclipse, which we have been experiencing over the months, and will continue to be prevalent, many speculate as to the effects on what this all means.
As always, go into your own heart space and find the answers to how you would like to work with the energy, but there is the potential for some majorly impactful and long-awaited changes that can manifest from your willingness to go to the heart and core of what really matters, and work with all aspects of yourself – especially the fears and shadows.
If you can see through the surface illusions of what the fears are actually, invaluably teaching you, and not allow ego to get in the way of discerning truth, then you may find profound rebirth and truer freedom, as you let go of embracing only what your preconceived belief-oriented “comfort zone” allows.
Balance is key and remember, there is no destination – just the journey.
Mystic Mamma has selectively gathered some really great Astral Insights from some of the most insightful channels to provide supportive guide posts through this energetic experience. You can read them all here:
As Cinzia Meneghello shares in the post:
“The ‘squareness’ of a Grand Cross can awaken our ability to conceive its opposite: harmonious flow.”
I also like Robert Wilkinson’s remarks, particularly in light of my own “physical bone fractures” I’ve experienced that symbolically felt potent to the breaking apart of old to new he explains:
“As Eternals, we’ve seen many things fall apart across many lifetimes. It’s a very human experience. And every loss creates the space for something new to come at exactly the right time…
“Just keep in mind that if it actually IS a time of many things fracturing, don’t be impatient for the new to present itself before the fracturing is done. We need a clean slate if we’re going to write a new symphony (and it’s hard to write one when the ground is shaking!)”
This post came back around to me this morning synchronously and it felt very “in tune” to reshare. I adore Benjamin Zander and his infectious joy of life and I heart-fully love his way of perceiving things.
There are some key and powerful insights, some of which I quoted, that he shares in the video on the transformative power of classical music (music which I enjoy immensely)….my favorites have to do with “shining eyes”.
The question to ask yourself is, “Who are you being that others eyes are not shining?” When you stand in the joyous wholeness and love of your divine and natural beauty, you shine a light for others to do the same.

So many beautiful messages and experiences are flowing in abundance like never before and it is a beautiful sign of the magic we are all tapping into collectively. We are seeing synchronicity take place moment to moment, as the lines between self and collective blur, and our concept of time integrates into the now moment of unlimited Oneness, where all power exists to create from our hearts.
LOVE, is the constant theme and underlying message, answer, power that shifts reality.
The lovely Laura Bruno and I decided, today (unbeknownst to us) to both post a favorite TED talk. On the surface they seem different and energetically have a different vibe, however after I saw hers, which was a beautiful and moving talk by Dr. Neha Sangwan called The Communication Cure, I not only recognized the synchronicity of our posting TED talks, but that the message was also synchronous – one…

Eleven years ago, today, Nestor (aka Nestie), came into “this” life of mine and every year I like to remember with reverence her beautiful presence that is eternally and ever-prevading. I like that this “11″ energy – a Master number – is around this week, which included our Reiki Retreat weekend where “11″ Reiki Master Teachers were present together at culmination of our workshops.
My life has never been the same since she and I found each other “again”. And it is because of her that Joy is now in my life and that I am where I am today in all ways.
And to add to our 11th anniversary, I’m hearing from the beautiful souls/my students from this weekend on their amazing openings and from people they are touching with their healing gifts, who have personally messaged me about their experiences received from them and to share their gratitude with me in assisting this process. A full circle of love and giving. So I am literally overflowing with love and reverence right now. Tears of All That Is.
And it’s all just compounding what I already was feeling and realizations I’d come to since this past weekend – doors closing and opening in an expansive new way.
Yesterday evening’s large earthquake not far from here, while I was early in bed, came at just the synchronous time I was affirming things and releasing into complete detachment to however change may want to manifest.
This experience/life we share is such a gift that keeps on giving.
I’ve written and shared a lot about Nestor, so today I just simply wanted to publicly tell her “thank you” and “I love you”.
Usually I post one of the songs that are special to her and I, and they often are these enchanting melodies, or have poignant words that mean something to us.
But today, I’m guided to share one of our expansive songs between us – one of my all-time favs – with high energy and limitless possibilities – titled “Airwave” by Rank 1.
She and I share a meditative journey through Earth and Cosmos with this one that I just LOVE. And being that I am feeling a more full embodiment of my Galactic Nature, this feels fitting right now and perhaps reveals more of who I am.
It seems to reflect the energy I’m feeling now as well, and the adventure ahead that is WIDE open to imagination and creative potentials.
I’m also now getting huge chills, as I had no idea until I looked at my CD that it is in fact #11 on the CD!!! OMG!!!
And this different version (which may be my current favorite) of it with gorgeous photos that I found is so WOW, perfect right now, and beautiful to me! A love for all of life on this beautiful Earth and beyond! And I know that visuals are what people enjoy, if they can’t journey within there yet themselves, so I think you’ll find this first version to satisfy on that level. :)
Following the first version, with visual adventure, is another of the same version I found, but with a static, perfect image I loved, and then a portion of the actual version I have listened to with Nestor, right after that.
I couldn’t help myself as I LOVE this song, what it means to me, and where it takes me when I LET GO. Plus, Nestor deserves a LOT of honoring and we, as multi-dimensional beings deserve recognition and embrace of what that fully means to embody.
Total joyous, loving, EVERYTHING tears and chills.
Enjoy the journey!
I am returning this week from what was quite an amazing weekend shared at our Reiki Renewal Retreat this weekend in Laguna Beach, California, so I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things here, which includes integrating some pretty major energy shifts experienced.
I’ll be sharing about our beautiful weekend in an upcoming feature story blog, but for now I feel guided to touch on change, once again, being that not only am I in process of this, but the new Reiki Master Teachers from our weekend are as well, and it feels very prevalent collectively too.
It’s not that change isn’t always happening, as indeed it is in every way, but there are currents of perhaps more intensified and rather dramatic shifts that flow in, like now.
We talked about a lot of things over this last weekend and some of it included the experiences of embracing, integrating, and recalibrating change, and how we can assist this process with greater ease, grace, personal commitment and responsibility, as well as compassionate understanding.
Change can be uncomfortable at first, which is why most people shy away from it, as it seems too overwhelming. It can herald a period of “healing crisis” where all of the “icky” stuff comes to the surface and is felt with increased sensitivity, as it is in process of cleansing out.
Yet what most people don’t realize is that it’s simply the temporary growing pains of new expansion your soul is entertaining courageously – a lot of which is a result of illusion created from conditioned beliefs, that if simply embraced with open breath and heart, would integrate with grace and ease into a whole new landscape of possibilities awaiting…. possibilities that don’t exist and never will, if we allow the fears to define us, rather than our breath to expand us.
I immediately had the opportunity to put my own “change embracing” to the test, once I set foot back into the world after the “other-world” bubble we were sharing in over the weekend. I could feel the huge expansion that was happening with me and that became physically evident when I blew out my cell phone late Saturday afternoon.
I went to take off the charger connection to it, so I could take my cell to the beach, but as I reached for the connector to pull it out, my fingers literally were on fire, burning, and I then smelled that fire singe when something is frying. I immediately let out a squeal from the burning sensation and dropped the connector. I picked it up again, by the chord, and saw it was blackened at the end and melted a bit. The area where it connects on my cell phone also was. The outlet was fine. The area of the chord that plugs in was fine.
That was the first blow out and I just embraced it as part of the shifting taking place, as I know how normal blowing out electronics can be when your energy is expanding and raising, and you are going through an upgrade. I’ve blown out other cell phones and my computers this way and also when my energy gets heightened by something.
So Monday, after the retreat I designated part of the day to getting a new cell phone, but after visiting the bank first. And as soon as I put my card and deposit in and touched the screen, the ATM machine went all weird and then spit out some error message after the thinking wheels were turning for a while, trying to process it (the energy), then immediately went out, holding my ATM card and money hostage. :)
It took me a while to have them correct things and get my card back. And I did have to return yesterday, as the deposit correction hadn’t worked either. So there was a patient process of dealing with the turn of events in my energetic field.
After the ATM fiasco, I visited the ATT store with my mom and Lynne – my sweet friend and one of the retreat guests. I think we gave the ATT staff an experience they’ll be talking about for a while to come, as we were like ET’s landing on Earth from another dimension and were pulling out pendulums and had this energy emanating that was quite a contrast to the technological conversations taking place there. They kept being drawn in, but also wide-eyed and in huddled conversation when not near us.
I had no idea what I was looking at in terms of getting a new cell phone, nor did I know if we could retrieve my contact data. The cell phone was completely inaccessible and the staff said they’d never seen anything like what they saw when they looked at.
Being non-techy I am not one who backs up my data on my cell by connecting it to my computer. And I had no idea if the “ON” button was on, that automatically does iCloud storage backup. But I did assess by going online that indeed my iCloud had everything backed up automatically and was completely up to date. Thank you Universe for always watching my back. :)
So, I had the option of either upgrading to the newest iPhone from my 4S iPhone, or I could choose a completely new cell altogether. Not being wed to any company or type of electronics, I was completely ambivalent. However, I started seeing this, as I always do, as much more than merely a cell phone upgrade choice.
The cell phone represented me and my vehicle of communication, as well as my ability to connect worldwide with others, and share. This choice of upgrade felt like that opportunity I had available and varying options/ways to go about it.
I had actually been very curious about the Android Galaxy (of course being drawn to the name and how that really suits me) and had been feeling it in my field for the last several months even though I’ve had two iPhones back to back. Well, actually 3, but the first didn’t last long due to “technical difficulties”.
But I could feel my hesitancy (the same we all feel when faced with something different to handle), when faced with this bombardment of unclear and unknown factors, and the potential for the time and energy put in to get things up and running.
So, I really wanted to step back and review all the angles, possibilities, and explore the information provided, so I could make the most fitting wise discernment of choice that truly reflected the natural and real me – not the stressed me that was having temporary infiltration from something outside of my personal frequency. (LOL!! ok, right now as I wrote this, something I had on pause on my computer since this morning decided to just unpause right as I am making this declaration, with very dramatic, expansive music!)
We ended up being in the store for about 3 hours total that day and were passed along to 3 different people in the process, ending with Jose, who was really patient with us and giggled along the way, entertaining our unique way of exploring the options.
I asked if I’d be able to switch my contacts easily to the Galaxy and they got their tech guy out who was sharing how difficult it would be, but yes, possible. I asked if they would help me with my email synching, as it has been challenging because I have them through a hosting company, which has different ways of setting up the incoming and outgoing details needed. They said they’d do their best and try to look it up and help me.
I have to admit, I was stressed about the contact thing. At first, thinking that I had lost them, but I quickly released that saying “what a clean slate I will have and I’ll just contact the people I’m meant to be in connection with.” Then I was stressed about the whole process, on top of the pile up of work I had right now to do.
I was also feeling stress about the email connection, as I know how challenging it was before and I had to spend time on the phone because the store couldn’t do it once. The second time they had.
So, this was part of the things to weigh, along with the newness of a whole new “galaxy” of learning with the new system.
In the end, I DID choose the Galaxy Note 3, which was completely a new change all around for me. But it wasn’t without facing some tough and anxiety producing situations along the way. All three of our pendulums – mom’s, Lynne’s, and my own, despite any of the challenges presented, were all pointing to the Galaxy.
Jose and the other 2, including manager, all expressed how much they liked the Galaxy, but that it is definitely a huge learning curve for an iPhone user, and I could tell without them saying it, that they felt women were even more challenged with switching and tended to like iPhones more.
They shared that 90% of iPhone users who try the Galaxy, return it within the 14-day trial window you have.
When asked why this is, they said, that it simply was too challenging for them to learn a new system, when they were already used to the one they had.
I asked Jose if I could have a moment to process things and I instantly connected with my first thought I had said out loud from the get-go, that although there would potentially be challenges to overcome at first, that it was of benefit to embrace the big change , as it would produce greater return.
I just knew this was the right truth for me and it no longer made sense as to why I would go to the iPhone, when I’m truly wanting to embrace the change and this new upgrade in my life. I’m a person who likes to be consistent with everything I do and I see how every choice I make is symbolically connected to how I am stating to the Universe that I would like to proceed in my life. Each choice is not only providing me the guidance in what gets brought up in the process, but also the training in how to assimilate all new things across the board
While it would have been an upgraded iPhone and still some things to learn, it wasn’t the kind of change (big) that I wanted, nor knew would be best for me and where I’m headed, which entailed something completely unfamiliar in every way where I only had trust in my pocket to guide me, rather than a safety net of remnants of old comforting things to fall back on.
I could see how that 90% of people they mentioned going back to the iPhone, was significant in how many people really do fear change, in general, and would rather have things easier, even if that meant not challenging themselves into potentially exponential new experiences and adventures that they could benefit from if only they could trust and embrace each step of the journey.
I could understand why that is, as I had to face those stressful “ideas”, which in fact they really were just conditioned, old ideas, fears, and ultimately – illusions.
Jose tried to connect my email after quite the effort, and even going online to look up how to do it, but to no avail he could not. So, I just decided to embrace that as long as I had a cell phone, I’d take it a day at a time and just slowly get things operational, even if that meant making long tech support calls.
However, none of this came to be. The initial “perceived” anxieties proved to not only be illusions and false, but proved to provide me extra value when I decided to listen to my heart guidance instead, despite everything else trying to steer me elsewhere.
My embracing the change with trust and ultimately, excitement, proved a gift. I was able to find different information online that Jose hadn’t, and set up my email easily and quickly. :) I also went online and easily found information on how to transfer my contacts from one system to another, which proved different than the info their tech guy had told me and easily and quickly had all my contacts in my new phone.
All of this was perfect, as I was supposed to hear the challenging info in order to really make it that much more powerful of a choice I made to embrace the change.
And in the process, I’ve discovered that I actually do like this system and cell phone better and there are tons of cool things I can do and explore, as I have time, that I couldn’t do before. It’s a daily learning curve, but that’s part of my commitment to growth.
I feel that Jose and the gang at ATT are anticipating my return to the store before the 14-day trial period. I had the thought to wait until day 15 and then stop in to say hi and how much I’m enjoying my new cell phone. ;)
I can definitely see the reflection of this experience, in how it relates to my new changes and the direction I’m heading in, the way I believe in approaching life, and how I desire to walk in the action of those beliefs.
Many see change as the enemy, but until you make it your friend and valued ally, you won’t experience the graceful way it can bestow gifts in your life. Transformation is a force for real growth and real growth can sometimes mean pain or discomfort, though can be experienced with the understanding of its natural cycle.
Think of nature and its cycles. Nature doesn’t question the onset of fall when leaves and blossoms disappear, and then everything goes into a winterland slumber. It also doesn’t judge springtime blooming as any better than the harvesting of fall, or the reflective time winter can herald, reminding us that all we need is within and there we find the tools that can see us through any environmental experience.
Without the interim of pain or challenge, you would not feel alive and there would also be no aliveness of joy, nor a butterfly birthed from the caterpillar.
It is when we block, stop, or judge the change set in motion, that we experience increased and unnaturally prolonged discomforts, which in essence are merely lovingly trying to get your attention because, guess what?
You love yourself more than you allow yourself to realize and the knowing part of you will always act in your best interest to support you into remembering who you really are.
While the mind and spirit find more ease in understanding why things happen, the old ways of our emotions have not the luxury of such logic. Our hearts are transforming into higher heart experiences that can feel unconditionally. Yet, human emotions take time to make sense of it all and should be given the honor of their natural unfolding to do so, free of judgment that binds us to our suffering. And judge not judgment, as it is an opportunity for allowance. We have the power to choose our way of experiencing and in taking ownership of our suffering, we are led to harmony, balance, and joy.
Human “Being” is a state of experience that is ever complex with duality, but was also meant to be a gift of harmonious union between physical and spiritual, which allows us the ability to experience and create in amazing ways. We as humans are gifted the opportunity of unlimited expansiveness and by design are extremely sophisticated, refined, and highly developed consciousness potentials waiting to blossom. And this IS your time to blossom.
Yet, for a long time we have chosen only to live a fraction of that potential, unaware of what lies just on the other side of that wall we either hid behind or straddled.
What is the fear? Perhaps it is a fear of the promise of joy and what that could mean. And likely it is also the fear of responsibility in coming fully into your power and what that empowerment can mean for your life and all of the people you come in contact with. This fear is a powerful thing that when chosen, surrenders your power to choose, as it can take over your life like a dis-ease.
We fear our own humanness, the very thing that is so beautifully powerful, and what it would do if unleashed. Fear creates the separation and hinders your ability to see other perspectives that could instantly disintegrate it. Our true hearts will never steer us wrong and reality can transform miraculously if we live in, and choose from, them always. We then come to understand the limitless choices of experience and continuity of life, beyond duality that lives with us from this state of being.
From our fragmented perspective, we fear death and endings as permanent and final. Like a door brutally slammed on our hearts, just as we were learning to open them. The secret here is that while a closed door might, in the realm of conditioned thought, mean the end to something and a desire to give up and never try again, the opposite is also true and might simply mean that a circle of life has completed a revolution and is about to pick up momentum for the next more expansive spiral of experience.
The choice is yours.
Every pain has both the ability to sour us for life, or to sweeten the journey. The deeper we allow ourselves to explore the realms of watery abyss, the more beautifully we learn to swim with the grace and flow of our cetacean friends, through the turning tides of life.
Every coin has two sides and these two sides are part of the same coin. Yin and Yang are complete opposites, yet are integral to Oneness. One creates the possibility for the other and therefore, is not a separate experience, nor cancels the other out. Together, they are grace in perfection; a feeling without words that is the expansive totality of consciousness “being” the essence of unconditional love.
We can learn to move in and out of each with grace, understanding from a third perspective that observes with conscious awareness, responsible commitment, and unconditionally loving compassion.
Therefore, to know your pain is to know your joy. And in order to truly know the depths of joy, sometimes you will choose to walk in the shoes of pain, until the experience becomes a perfect fusion. The beauty is that the length of each season is determined solely by the perspective you embrace, until the season integrates into one cycle.
Loss can be challenging, especially when someone is in your heart so deeply or you’ve become conditionally comfortable where you are. However life is not about plateauing to some never-to-change-again experience. We are constantly evolving and learning more about our nature of personal reality. That entails new horizons to adventure into, as well as new and exciting hurdles to walk or leap through.
In time, we can grow from the experiences and create new processes of how to move with greater ease and grace through life by embracing our new perspectives. It’s not that you rid yourself of ever having to experience challenge, but you learn to move through them more naturally and start implementing more efficient processes so that you no longer consciously see things as a problem or difficult. You simply move through them like Nature does her cycles, without blocking the flow with your getting stuck.
When we try to hold on to something or someone, all we do is hurt ourselves and stop the promise of new seeds to blossom. There is a web of life and magically supportive gifts within each experience for our perspectives to embrace. And within shifting perspectives, the opportunity for powerful soul growth.
It’s like that moment a butterfly emerges from the cocoon, discovering its chrysalis form has taken flight. It does not mourn the loss of its caterpillar self, but embraces the joy of this new and expansive creation it has become. Not a death; merely a transformation. A simple change of perspective.
Some words to reflect on:
Responsibility is a grace you give yourself not an obligation. ~Dan Millman
Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings. ~Rumi
One act of surrender, one change of heart, one leap of faith, can change your life forever. ~Robert Holden
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. ~Alan Watts
The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow. ~Will Garcia
Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade. But do not be disheartened. The source they come from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you and this whole world is springing up from it. ~Rumi
This is a powerful share by my dear Laura Bruno that can really have life-changing effects if you are willing to really do the work. I have seen many people run and hide from others who bring up uncomfortable and challenging feelings, feeling they are in the “right”, but guess what? The shadow doesn’t disappear, unless you actively engage it in a dance of willingness to explore, integrate, and love it as a part of you being reflected in them. While you may temporarily pull within to do that work, it will be of benefit if you actually do it and not just decide to avoid the person because it will come up again in someone or some other situation nonetheless. I see all things as gifts, and that includes the really uncomfortable, “icky” stuff. I can’t tell you how working with my shadow has benefited my life and changed everything. Thank you Laura for the insights on shadow, past lives, and one valuable tool – The Blue Room.

I see this pattern a lot during sessions, but having recently experienced the empowering and liberating results in my own life, I wanted to explain a bit here. Many people assume that if they feel instant aversion when meeting someone new that it indicates some unresolved past life issues or a huge warning that the person in question is really a no good meanie out to get them. “Always trust your gut!” In general, this is good advice, but not always. The more reactive our first impression, the more it indicates complex interplay. Inexplicable aversion does not validate a black and white world. It does, however, beg for our attention.
While the body provides us with visceral feedback, our interpretation of such information is not infallible, especially when we throw in complicating factors like past lives. Sometimes an instant aversion does indicate that someone really screwed us over in a…

Happy Spring!! I thought you might enjoy this article repost, as you welcome in a new season of you. Today is the start of our Reiki Renewal Retreat here in Laguna Beach, California where we’ll be expanding and blossoming on whole new levels. I have been seeding the changes and intents in my own life, along with doing some major clean-out, so I’m ready for the new ways things will be blossoming into being. I don’t know the results, I merely trust that the place I land when I leap, will gracefully support the highest good. And with “taking leaps” in mind, here is some Frog symbolism and medicine you may find speaking to you right now. I’m looking forward to seeing if any frogs show up for us this weekend on hike time. ;) Wishing you a sparkly Spring celebration as you breathe in the new.

Life is unfolding rapidly before our eyes and we sometimes don’t realize how truly far we’ve come in a relatively short span of time. It’s time to take stock of what we have in our life and truly feel gratitude for the beauty that we DO have, regardless of all the aspirations and desires we feel we have yet to attain. As spring continues to blossom and unfold, the revving new energies of the year are beginning to truly take form and all that we’ve intended has grand opportunity to come into manifestation. These are exciting times for us all and it is a blessing to be able to share the journey together.
Not only can we all benefit from a little spring cleaning on all levels right now, but could also benefit from a bit of “living” and breathing in of those parts of ourselves and our lives that…

With today’s Full Moon in Virgo (Sun in Pisces) illuminating things into our conscious day-to-day experience, we have the ability to bring balance and synergy to both the spiritual (imaginative/dreamy/watery Pisces) and practical (discerning/disciplined/earthy Virgo). This can assist us in integrating the energy (utilizing all of our Chakras) so that we harness our manifestation abilities with heart-full clarity, in service to the highest good of all. Creative Manifestation at its best!
Coming into this Earth plane of existence entails a synthesizing of subtle and more dense energies. We are influenced by vibrational energies that can take adjusting to, when we drop into physical form. And coming from a multi-dimensional experience, this offers a wide experiential array of possibilities, as well as possible challenges if we get stuck in the collective unconsciousness that the dense reality can generate in many – weighing more heavily on the ability of some to expand into remembering their divinity and potentials.
It takes an incredible amount of focus, courage, and commitment to keep your faculties about you so that you can foster a consistent level of awareness and presence while you are moving through the enormous and varied field of energetic vibrations that are abound. It can be challenging to maintain your own energetic experience – personal frequency, as the tendency is to match vibrations that trigger some conditioning within us. Since everything is a vibration of energy, like attracts like.
And with energetic magnetic forces, expressing as charged vibrations/particles such as solar flares and gamma rays we are being showered with, everyone is getting an extra bombardment of galactic gifts that are influencing humanity’s consciousness evolution. And these also will have varied and relative influences on each individual, resulting in a variety of shifts on any or all levels of experience, in response to the geomagnetic and electromagnetic forces.
This is resulting in DNA shifts and activations in the genetic codes, know it or not, where the physical body is experiencing dynamic transformation in chemical, accelerated changes towards higher frequency vibrations. And this is enabling many, who may have not consciously experienced things like energy, to suddenly start sensing things on a whole new level than they have, or to experience the growing pains of this recalibration.
All of this to remind us that we are simultaneously a unique self, as well as a multidimensional being of Oneness. And it is happening whether you are aware of it and welcome it, or not.
This is the cosmic alchemy of humanity and Earth that is unfolding into a crystalline transformation.
And this can present fears and the tendency to block what is happening, which ultimately can result in challenge. It is each individual’s choice as to how you want to ride the change and there is no wrong or right way. However, if you would like to take a more active role and perhaps are not happy with the experiences you are having, then you could choose to engage the process more actively.
This is where becoming a conscious alchemist comes into play. We can each choose to engage our daily processes to the degree we are willing to and/or are ready for.
As today’s Full Moon brings the awareness of harmonizing our physical and spiritual in partnership, we can remember that this is available to us at all times and will result in optimizing our experiences when we dance in this balance. Utilizing the gifts we have, on all levels, is what lays dormant within us to unwrap and utilize. We embody everything we need, as multidimensional beings, yet these keys within us have not be remembered and awakened. Part of this is what is taking place with the solar flares and such, and the other part is our willingness to activate to the level of acceleration being presented.
You can do this by engaging yourself courageously to face and work with the limiting beliefs, old stories and patterns, and unresolved feelings you have, as every time you shift and transform an old, limitation, every cell responds with illuminating activation. The more you can do so each day, this will begin to release the constrictions that cause challenges because of the inner turmoil and fight against the shifts that are inevitably taking place. And when more of you lights up in greater, conscious experience of your wholeness, the more you are able to access your instant manifestation abilities to co-create your world with creative love and empowerment.
And when you engage yourself with more conscious empowerment of all of your parts, and realize that when you open these parts that you also release the divine blueprint keys that activate the alchemist you are at the heart of hearts, you then become a portal for change, yourself. And as you embrace the embodiment of this with more consciousness, you directly support others to be able to more easily do the same.
So, as the Full Moon illuminates the sky today, imagine yourself inviting more of that conscious and illuminating light energy into every fiber of your being. Invite a partnership of awareness with your body – remember that we are here for a reason and it’s not about leaving the physical body and experience behind, as we try to “ascend”.
When we realize that this is an experience of integration and that all of our parts working together creates the miracles that we innately are, then we will come to experience the consistency of alchemy and manifestation, rather than the bursts of it that we access intermittently.
These times can actually be viewed as necessary to enable humanity as a whole to transform into a comprehension of the truth of our oneness with each other and with all of Creation.
This felt particularly resonant today, as I stumbled upon it, so it felt to be perfect for today’s inspired post. Hope you enjoy the message from the Hopi and from one of my animal totems that has been the symbol of my life’s path since I began a conscious journey – our friend, the alchemical Butterfly.
“Grandmother Mona believes that giving the origins of her ancestors is as important as telling her name…Her last name, Polacca, means butterfly in the Hopi language and is the name received from her paternal grandfather. In Hopi lore, the butterfly is the symbol of man’s spiritual transformation.
‘At the level of existence, when it crawls on Mother Earth in the form of a caterpillar, it only sees what is right in front of it,’ Grandmother Mona explains. ‘There comes a time in the development when it puts itself into a little cocoon and enters the darkness. In this darkness, it completely breaks down. During that time a great change takes place…’
‘Finally it emerges into this world, into this life as a beautiful creature,’ Grandmother Mona says. ‘Yet it doesn’t immediately fly away. It sits there as if to be making a connection again with the elements of life: the water, the air, the fire, the earth. Then there is a moment when its wings start fluttering, developing movement, developing strength within itself using these elements of life.’
‘When the moment comes and the butterfly takes flight, it suddenly sees the world from a completely different point of view, a view of vaster beauty and a much, much wider worldview. This is what I was told about being a butterfly.’
…Grandmother Mona believes the Hopi legend of the butterfly can see us through these turbulent times of darkness and confusion by revealing to us our path of transformation.
These times can actually be viewed as necessary to enable humanity as a whole to transform into a comprehension of the truth of our oneness with each other and with all of Creation.
Only by going into darkness and breaking down our old ways can we move from the myopic view of the caterpillar to the greatly expanded view of the butterfly~ a necessary view if we are to save the beauty and resources of our planet for the next seven generations to come.
Then we will have emerged out of the darkness of ignorance into the beauty of the butterfly to see the wonder, hope, compassion, faith, and charity so essential for our survival.”
