Connected, David Wilcock interview, Cancer new moon, solar grills, and Abraham


I know I did a post yesterday and usually I wait a few days before doing another, but I really wanted to get the info about the current new moon phase out to people in a timely manner. We are in the midst of some potent astrological configurations these days, and will be for awhile (see  one of my previous posts on the 2013 Grand Water Trine), and it’s always helpful to know what energies are at play so we can make the most of them. So take heed. :-)….

# 2 – A take on the current Cancer new moon, Mercury retrograde, and other astrological happenings, from Henry Seltzer at astrograph.com….

A MAGICAL & DIFFICULT NEW MOON

by Henry Seltzer

Monday’s New Moon, which happens midnight Sunday on the west coast, early Monday morning on the east coast and Europe, takes place in the middle of sensitive Cancer, and in the heart as well of the Mercury Retrograde period. This lunation comes along at one extreme peak of the entire Mercury Retrograde, taking place as it does with the Sun and Moon in conjunction with Mercury, as it moves backward through Cancer, and accompanied as it is by the grand trine of JupiterSaturn and Neptune in Water signs, with Saturn stationing to direct motion.

The station direct of Saturn is extremely significant, making the Mercury Retrograde that much more intense, especially since the station happens so near the time of the New Moon, taking place a mere two hours before it. This station is what has made the trine between Saturn and Neptune last so long, these two being within one half of a degree of exact trine since the beginning of June, and lasting at this extent of closeness all the way through to the end of July. Saturn with Neptune on the one hand brings grounding to our dreams and schemes, and on the other throws the monkey wrench of fuzziness and overly imaginative thinking into our concrete planning.

These factors are likely to continue as long as the period of the Mercury Retrograde will last, from late June to July 20th, and on into the time of Mercury‘s retrograde shadow, two more weeks after its three weeks of backwards motion. With Saturn so emphasized, it is just a little harder now to make anything happen, which blends nicely with the frustration-inducing moments that are the hallmark of the Mercury Retrograde period itself.

The grand water trine is also particularly active now, through to past the middle of July, with Jupiter just a few degrees off the trine to both Saturn and Neptune, and closing. This has consequences for our own understanding of ourselves at deep levels, as symbolized by the strong Water emphasis, including the potential loss of faith in what we thought that we could count on. The upside is the possibility of faith in the largely unseen and, consciously at least, unknown elements of the bigger picture of our lives, residing in the very depths of us. The collective also reflects this symbolism, as secrets come to light, witness the NSA wiretapping scandal, with confusion as to motive of both government (Saturn) and perhaps idealistic whistle-blower, and with deception (also Neptune) potentially involved at either end of the equation.

As mentioned above, Saturn is standing still in the sky at time of this New Moon and new beginning. Saturnrepresents structure, what we can most depend on, and, in this association with Cancer, represents home and family structure as well, which might appear to be in mild or more major convulsion. Surprises are also likely, with Venus closely trine Uranus in the New Moon configuration, also the possibility of surprising enlightenment. With luck, as existing structures dissolve or are called into question, we might be able to forge new structures to replace them, based on a wider appreciation of the magic that the cosmos, and that we ourselves, when we try our best, can manage to bring to the table.

# 3 – Another insightful article on the potency of this astrological period and how best to create some magic. Love where she writes “Your true destiny is designed to be revealed when you follow your heart as it beats in harmony with universal energies.”

Cancer New Moon: Blood Lightning!

By  · July 3, 2013

The ancient Mayans were aware of an energy that connects each living being to heaven. They called this energy Eb, or blood lightning—the vital force which drives consciousness. When I first heard the term, I was so taken with it that I decided to call the movie I’m writing Blood Lightning. It seemed appropriate to my theme of a young woman coming into her spiritual power during the tumultuous period of 1850s New Orleans.  And now, just as we enter the Eb Trecena (July 1 – 14), which calls forth blood lightning, the screenplay is finally taking a deeper turn and building power, after many starts and stops.

According to the Mayans, Eb helps us connect our physical and spiritual beings, synchronize our hearts with Earth’s natural rhythms and gather energies within. Carlos Barrios says of this period, “Your true destiny is designed to be revealed when you follow your heart as it beats in harmony with universal energies.”

Can you feel this energy building? It corresponds with the magical Grand Water Trinebetween Jupiter, Mars, Neptune and Saturn which is taking shape in the heavens. Though this trine won’t be exact until July 17-22, its power can already be felt. We’re sure to experience it at the July 8 Cancer New Moon (12:14 a.m. PDT), when the Sun and Moon embrace in the sign of the Great Mother, trine the North Node (destiny) in potent Scorpio. This powerful trine is a prelude to the Grand Water Trine, which unites Jupiter in Cancer (emotional truth), Saturn in Scorpio (karmic rectification) and Neptune in Pisces (heavenly bliss). All greatly energized by Mars conjunct Jupiter at the July 22 Full Moon. So, by tapping into our emotional truth, we can rectify old wrongs and climb the ladder to heaven, or fulfillment.

Though that may sound grandiose, the power of this energy is not to be scoffed at.Big changes are possible with very little effort this month. Heavenly aid is amazingly close and magic is available in a way that seldom happens. If this Grand Trine should fall near your birthday, as it does for me, the year ahead is bound to be one of advancement and good fortune (it activates my Mercury, so I’m looking forward to selling that screenplay!). Even if it’s not your birthday, any planets you have around 5 degrees of water signs will be greatly energized. This also applies to the houses in which the Grand Trine falls.

The key to all this potential good fortune is the nurturing of your emotional body. If you’ve been disregarding your feelings and soldiering on, it’s time to have a truth session with yourself. A core belief is probably holding you back from having what you want. Saturn in Scorpio pulls us to examine the root cause of our behaviors, so we can turn things around—especially in relationships and finances. Gather your energies and make any needed adjustments while Mercury is still retrograde through July 20. Then, as the July 22 Full Moon brings things to fruition, you’re apt to see some miraculous results.

# 4 – I love all these great innovative, eco-friendly ideas and products coming forward! I wonder what else is possible?! :-)

Solar Grills/heaters!
David Wilson, a professor at MIT, came up with this baby barbecue requiring no use of firewood, coal, gas or electricity to operate. The futuristic-looking contraption serves both for grilling, cooking or heating food, and it also serves as a space heater, using only solar energy. Battery life of about 25 hours between recharging. This means that the energy stored in a single day in the sun can be used throughout the night and the next day. Perfect for outdoor cooking in large cities, but especially rural and remote communities.

# 5 – And from good ole Abe….

“That’s why so many of us teach meditation. Because when you stop thought, you stop resistant thought. When you stop resistant thought, then you let it in. That’s why we teach appreciation, because when you’re in appreciation, you are not in the mode of resistance, and you are letting it in.”-–Abraham

# 7 – And some input from Abraham…

“Your emotion, your indicator of vibration, is indicating the ratio between your currently focused desire and any other belief or thought that you hold about same. When you feel negative emotion, anger about something, or fear… the name of the emotion does not matter, it always means that there is a desire within you that, in this moment, you are contradicting with some other thought.

Your emotions are always about your relationship with your own desire, and nothing else.”—Abraham

# 5 –  Are you ready for Super Moon Sunday?!

Summer Solstice and Full Super Moon 2013: Heart, Soul, and Summer Flowers

Summer Solstice: June 21, 2013, 1:04 am EDT.

Full Super Moon: June 23, 2013, 7:32 am EDT. 2 degrees Capricorn.

(From aeprilsastrology.com) If there ever was a time when we could communicate our hearts with Love, and be well received for doing so, now is that time. The Full Moon is always about relationships, the balancing of the Solar and Lunar, the Masculine and Feminine; and Summer Solstice is about blooming. Relationships can get a boost now with right communication. The Super moon brings the moon closer to earth than normal. This is a big Moon, and coinciding with the Summer Solstice, it packs quite a lovely punch!

Both the Solstice and the Full Moon (two days later) have a Grand Trine formation, which are gifts from the gods. But again, they are only gifts if we use them; Grand Trines are opportunities to have things go very well, but they can easily sit dormant if not “lit up”, so to speak. This Grand Trine is in water signs, and therefore is in the realm of emotion and feeling. Remember, the Knight has to DO something to win the Graal, she doesn’t just show up and come along when he snaps his fingers! There is a test; he must prove himself worthy. But this is a portal.
For both events, Jupiter is conjunct the Sun, giving us an extra boost of energy. This is a solar and heroic energy, perfect for the beginning of Summer! We might feel extra generous and expansive, especially with the expression and enthusiasm of our feelings. Lilith is involved in this conjunction as well; anything that has been a source of frustration or heartache can be expressed, and, thereby, possibly transformed. Feelings and thoughts that have been kept on the outside, for any reason, have a chance to be included and heard. The energy between the Solar masculine and the Dark Feminine has Tantric potential now.
Venus and Mercury conjunct in Cancer supports loving dialogue, fusing the Goddess of Love with the God of Messages and Communication. There is a collective ability to speak with care and nurturance, and to also listen with the same. On Friday (Solstice) the Moon is trine Neptune and Saturn, creating balance and harmony. Some relationships can reach new places of love and understanding. Deep healing can happen now. It is of the utmost importance to be as authentic as possible. Sugar coating or pretending in order to avoid a confrontation is not the same as cooperation and true harmony. If something is deeply out of alignment or missing within a relationship, or it is successfully near completion, there may be little that can be said or done to “fix” it. In this case, this transiting influence is a time to talk about this fact with great love, respect, and kindness. On Sunday, the Full Super Moon is conjunct Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto. Pluto signifies depth and “getting to the bottom of things”. There is a yearning for ones very soul to be touched and acknowledged; mere domestic “getting along” won’t be enough for some. Still, we are entering a precious moment of balance.
The Sabian symbol for the Full Moon is “A human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment”. The transition into Summer brings with it a call to not just think about doing, but to really do! This is a time of coming fully into the body, and experiencing life in real, tangible ways. Those of us who have dwelled in the world of possibility have an opportunity now to bring those ideas and fantasies into earthly translation. The fact of doing so, of course, defines and claims, which automatically limits possibility—or seems to. Really, there may be more possible than we’ve even been thinking! The Universe works in wondrous ways when we show a willingness to go forward! This is the alchemical moment of colagulation, when things take an actual form and shape. It can be scary for some, a relief for others, a little of both for many. The act of communication, of using words and saying, in as a ritual or spell or  intention setting, also claims and defines. The moment something comes out of ones mouth it is named, and therefore has taken a form. It makes it “real”, so to speak. The Full Moon in Capricorn Sabian symbol tells us that it is time for this “realness” to occur, to honor that which occupies our minds and feelings and say it out loud! Swim in it, dance it, paint it, act it, poet it, etc. Do you love? Say so. Our souls dry out without this.
Our human hearts are so very fragile. They are like the flowers that we see all around us as Spring turns into Summer. We remember and honor this about one another, and about ourselves, as the Summer months take us in their warm embrace.
“If a thing loves, it is infinite”—William Blake

# 5 – Ask, allow, receive. Short and sweet. :-)

You say, “May I have…” or, “I would really like to have…” or, “What I really want is…” and you can name anything under the sun that you can conjure, and the Universe calmly says, “Here it is,” because it is known by All-That-Is that anything that you desire—can be. So, “Yes, here it is.”-–Abraham

The art of blessing, Tumbleweed Homes, weight loss webinar, Generation One and more


PICKS OF THE DAY:

I came across these words by Pierre Pradervand on the art of blessing a number of years ago and like to reread them periodically. Never fails to put me in a more expanded, compassionate state of mind….

The Gentle Art of Blessing by Pierre Pradervand

On awakening, bless this day, for it is already full of unseen good which your blessings will call forth;
for to bless is to acknowledge the unlimited good that is embedded in the very texture of the universe
and awaiting each and all.

On passing people in the street, on the bus, in places of work and play, bless them. The peace of
your blessing will accompany them on their way and the aura of its gentle fragrance will be a light to
their path. On meeting and talking to people, bless them in their health, their work, their joy, their
relationships to God, themselves, and others.

Bless them in their abundance, their finances…bless them in every conceivable way, for such
blessings not only sow seeds of healing but one day will spring forth as flowers of joy in the waste
places of your own life. As you walk, bless the city in which you live, its government and teachers, its
nurses and street-sweepers, its children and bankers, its priests and prostitutes. The minute anyone
expresses the least aggression or unkindness to you, respond with a blessing: bless them totally,
sincerely, joyfully, for such blessings are a shield which protects them from the ignorance of their
misdeed, and deflects the arrow that was aimed at you.

To bless means to wish, unconditionally, total, unrestricted good for others and events from the
deepest wellspring in the innermost chamber of your heart: it means to hallow, to hold in reverence, to
behold with utter awe that which is always a gift from the Creator.

He who is hallowed by your blessing is set aside, consecrated, holy, whole. To bless is yet to invoke
divine care upon, to think or speak gratefully for, to confer happiness upon—although we ourselves
are never the bestower, but simply the joyful witnesses of Life’s abundance. To bless all without
discrimination of any sort is the ultimate form of giving, because those you bless will never know from
whence came the sudden ray of sun that burst through the clouds of their skies, and you will rarely be
a witness to the sunlight in their lives.

When something goes completely askew in your day, some unexpected event knocks down your plans
and you with them, burst into blessing: for life is teaching you a lesson, and the very event you believe
to be unwanted, you yourself called forth, so as to learn the lesson you might balk against were you
not to bless it. Trials are blessings in disguise, and hosts of angels follow in their path.

To bless is to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden to material eyes; it is to activate
that law of attraction which, from the furthest reaches of the universe, will bring into your life exactly
what you need to experience and enjoy.

When you pass a prison, mentally bless its inmates in their innocence and freedom, their gentleness,
pure essence and unconditional forgiveness; for one can only be prisoner of one’s self-image, and a
free man can walk unshackled in the courtyard of a jail, just as citizens of countries where freedom
reigns can be prisoners when fear lurks in their thoughts.

When you pass a hospital, bless its patients in their present wholeness, for even in their suffering, this
wholeness awaits in them to be discovered. When your eyes behold a man in tears, or seemingly
broken by life, bless him in his vitality and joy: for the material senses present but the inverted image
of the ultimate splendor and perfection which only the inner eye beholds.

It is impossible to bless and to judge at the same time. So hold constantly as a deep, hallowed,
intoned thought that desire to bless, for truly then shall you become a peacemaker, and one day you
shall, everywhere, behold the very face of God.

(From the book by Pierre Pradervand: The Gentle Art of Blessing – Living One’s Spirituality in Everyday
Life.)

# 2 – Jessica Ortner at The Tapping Solution is offering a free weight loss webinar

For many people thinking about their weight and how they feel about their body is a very emotional issue, especially for most women. Society puts a great deal of pressure on us to look good and be in shape. And unfortunately 2/3 of women in the United States alone are overweight, with 1/2 of  them being obese. That leads to a lot of frustrated women who are constantly going on a roller coaster ride of going from one diet to another, trying to find the magical solution. But if weight loss is such an emotional issue, why is the solution always to look at diet and exercise, and not to address the emotions?

Jessica Ortner, an EFT Tapping expert, is offering a webinar this week that you can attend called “The Biological Weight Loss Trap,” that goes into detail on the major role that our underlying emotions, beliefs and traumas play with our weight as well as our confidence in how we feel about our bodies. She shares some pretty shocking science and research that prove exactly why ignoring your emotions and only focusing on diet and exercise doesn’t work.

This webinar presentation will show you how to figure out what is going on in YOU that is preventing you
from releasing weight, and just as importantly, what is holding you back from feeling comfortable and confident in your body. You can find out more and sign up here.

# 3 – The Shift Network and Barbara Marx Hubbard have a new series starting today titled Generation One

# 5  – And in keeping with the Pick of the Day, a quote about blessing…

“One of the greatest needs this planet has for healing is blessing. it is under blessed. Under blessed reality is like empty calories.A blessing enhances possibilities for good. Like an enzyme for growth, like a catalyst in a chemical process, blessings serve to help a living process surmount the barriers that obstruct it.”

~Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, from “Jewish With Feeling “

Advice from Abraham, animals as humans, GMO shopping guide & labeling, and more


PICKS OF THE DAY:

Here’s some great “advice” from Abraham on how to make the evolution process easier…

“If we were standing in your physical shoes, we would do these things everyday and then anything else you have time for.

We would meditate for 15 minutes, every day.

Which means we would quiet our mind with the simple intention of allowing our cork to float

We would go outside, no matter what the weather, and we would move around in it in appreciation of this planet. We would look up and around and we would find things to acknowledge, and we would talk about them right out loud.

Esther walks through her gardens and says to everything, “You are my favorite. You are my favorite. You are my favorite. You are my favorite.

You are my favorite stone on the pathway. You are my favorite bird in the tree. You are my favorite flower in bloom. You are my favorite flower not in bloom. You are my favorite tree. You are my favorite bush. You are my favorite frog. You are my favorite frog, you kept me awake all night, but you are still my favorite frog.”

So, first thing meditate, second thing spend more time outside.

Third thing, we would buy a notebook. We would call it my book of positive aspects and we would fill at least three, four, five is even better, pages of positive aspects. Five different subjects and write the positive aspects of it, training your vibration into that upward place.

And then there is one last thing, that if we were standing in your physical shoes, we would do every single day.

We would look upward and outward, best if you do it outside or standing at a window, and we would acknowledge that there are universal forces that are focused right at you.

We would acknowledge, by calling it by name, if you have a name that you like, and we would say, “I acknowledge that I am the object of your positive attention and I am appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well-being. And today, no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter whom I am doing it with, I will be in conscious awareness that you too are there with me. Appreciating me, supporting me, assisting me, acknowledging me, inspiring me, guiding me, having fun with me, acknowledging me, supporting me, assisting me, inspiring me, helping me, guiding me, aware of me, loving me, showing me, inspiring me, guiding me, helping me, uplifting me, showing me….

Get into an endless loop of that acknowledgement and watch what begins to happen in your life as soon as this day.

Your Vortex is filled to the brim with specific request that you have put there and you are deserving of the realization of. And it is time for those realizations to be flooding into your experience at a rate that will astonish those who surround you.. It is time for you to remember what you have put there and to bring it forward, active into your today experience.” Abraham-Hicks – Sacramento, 2013

And nothing eases the evolutionary process like a good laugh, so my “Pick # 2” is something to lighten your mood…..animals doing a good job of being human.

# 5 – Interesting perspective…

This “underdeveloped” country is not inappropriate in any way. It has different desires and different standards, and it is not lesser than — it is just different. We did not all come to do it the same way. We did not all come to be alike. We came as a diverse bunch of Non-Physical Energies wanting different experiences.—Abraham

Wi-fi experiment, interesting point of view, chocolate walnut ice cream, Anita Moorjani and Abraham


TIPS FOR THE DAY:

# 1- Here’s a blog post that focuses on one of the most helpful tools from Access Consciousness…..seeing everything as just an “interesting point of view.” This one simple tool and the shift in consciousness it provides can be life-changing. Really!

http://strategicboardessentials.com/blog/2012/12/26/interesting-point-of-view

# 2 – Wow, if you use a cell phone (I think I’m the only person left on the planet who doesn’t) or have wi-fi in your house or work environment, here’s something you should see…

BTW, be sure to read my blog post titled EMFs, Your Health & Vibes Up for some ingenious ways to help off-set radiation from cell phones, wi-fi, cars, etc.

# 3 – Check out this yummy and nutritious dessert recipe I recently featured on my Self-help Health blog that could actually help you prevent Alzheimer’s.  Sort of like having your cake (in this case ice cream) and eating it, too? :-)

# 4 – Don’t worry, be happy…

“When we’re true to ourselves, we become instruments of truth for the planet. Because we’re all connected, we touch the lives of everyone around us, who then affect others. Our only obligation is to be the love we are and allow our answers to come from within in the way that’s most appropriate for us.

Finally, I can’t stress enough how important it is to enjoy yourself and not take yourself or life too seriously. One of the biggest flaws with many traditional spiritual systems is that they give you such a somber outlook. Although you know that I abhor creating doctrines, if I ever had to create a set of tenets for a spiritual path to healing, number one on my list would be to make sure to laugh as often as possible throughout every single day—and preferably laugh at myself. This would be hands down over and above any form of prayer, meditation, chanting, or diet reform. Day-to-day problems never seem as big when viewed through a veil of humor and love.

In this age of information technology, we’re bombarded with news seemingly at the speed of light. We’re living in an age of high stress and fear, and in the midst of trying to protect ourselves from everything we think is “out there,” we’ve forgotten to enjoy ourselves and to take care of what’s inside.

Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to this universe, and the memories we leave behind when we someday exit this world will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and to everyone around us to be happy and to spread that joy around.

If we can go through life armed with humor and the realization that we are love, we’ll already be ahead of the game. Add a box of good chocolates into the mix, and we’ve really got a winning formula!” Anita Moorjani from Dying To Be Me ♥

# 5 – And a little stimulation from Abraham to end on…

“We would never move forward in the face of negative emotion. There are many people who would teach you otherwise. They say you’ve got to face fear to get over it. And all they do is desensitize themselves to the point that they get themselves into situations where they have no idea what’s going on, and the end of them comes rather abruptly… And then everyone calls them brave.”—Abraham

# 3 –  You can sign up for a free pdf of Dr. Joe Vitale’s Miracles Manual here…

# 4 – Great input from Eckhart Tolle…

“Another benefit of the practice of body awareness is a great strengthening of the immune system. The more consciousness you bring into the body, the stronger the immune system becomes. It is as if every cell awakens and rejoices. The body loves your attention. It is also a potent form of self-healing. Most illnesses creep in when you are not present in the body. If the master is not present in the house, all kinds of shady characters will take up residence there. When you inhabit your body, it will be hard for unwanted guests to enter.”

It is not only your physical immune system that becomes strengthened; your psychic immune system is greatly enhanced as well. The latter protects you from the negative mental-emotional force fields of others, which are highly contagious. Inhabiting the body protects you not by putting up a shield, but by raising the frequency vibration of your total energy field, so that anything that vibrates at a lower frequency, such as fear, anger, depression, and so on, now exists in what is virtually a different order of reality. It doesn’t enter your field of consciousness anymore, or if it does you don’t need to offer any resistance to it because it passes right through you. Please don’t just accept or reject what I am saying. Put it to the test.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, from The Power of Now

# 5 – And an update from Henry Seltzer at astrograph.com about the lunar eclipse and other astrological happenings…

Friday evening’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is an exciting one, the last of three eclipses in this early spring time frame, taking place just a few days following the most recent installment of the perfect square between Uranusand Pluto in Cardinal signs, and strongly highlighting as well both Saturn andNeptune in close trine with each other. All four outer planets including Saturnare therefore very much emphasized at this time. Those born with sensitive points in their natal chart at around 4-12 degrees of any sign are most directly affected, as one or more of these powerhouse planets will likely square, conjunct or oppose such placements. As far as Sun Sign, this means everyone born within a few days of the first of the month, either at nearly the end or in the first few days of his or her birth month. Pretty much everyone will feel the intensity to some extent as we head into another summer of UranusPluto, the hallmark in fact of this entire decade that I like to call the “Turbulent Teens.”

All four of these planetary archetypes connote the difficult acceptance of a process of radical change, although from different angles. Saturn, the farthest planet actually visible without instrumentation and the only one known to the ancients, works upon you by a process of extreme limitation. You see clearly where your responsibility lies, and there is no escape. This seems dire, but certainly at times circumstances do conspire to inform us that there is one path for us to take, one way out, and although not necessarily pleasant it will be the road with the long-term reward of lessons learned and wisdom regained for the next stage of our journey.

Neptune is found in forming trine to Saturn — and at the focal point of a close T-square from this eclipse Sunand Moon in opposition to each other. While the trine aspect ameliorates the collision of values represented by this combination, these energies are basically antithetical. Neptune, extremely emphasized by this lunar eclipse, has an intensely transformative component just as Pluto has, and works by dissolving situations that it no longer makes sense to hold onto. This is potentially a very idealistic, and also confusing period, with a tendency for spacing out. You are distracted by the ineffable potential, far beyond the physical. You might be required to simply hold on, putting one foot ahead of the other, without really understanding where your road is leading you, trusting in the guidance of the surrounding universe to somehow get it right when your own sense of existing knowledge fails you. There is a mystery invoked, and an implicit reminder that we do not know the whole truth, perhaps not even a very sizable portion of the truth, of what we are facing and of what we are actually all about.

Then there is Uranus the enlightener as well as the trickster, surprising us constantly and providing a deeper sense of intuition than conscious awareness affords. A sense of what you are going through is available by this occult means, even as you resist it. The secret here is to remain as open as you can to possibility. Plutocombines with Uranus to blast away the impediments to getting on with necessary changes, either by a sense of inevitable realization, or, once subtlety has failed to move you, by more extreme measures. The negativity implied by Saturn wants to make this about difficulty: “I can’t wait for this to be over.” But the wise person deep inside you knows that, somehow, all this pain is the ache of birth and has underlying it the tenderness of dawning delivery.

The Sabian symbols for this Lunar Eclipse Sun and Moon reflect back on the outer planet energies with which they also strongly connect. For the Sun, in the fifth degree of Gemini, we have: “A radical magazine” for which Marc Edmond Jones states: “This is a symbol of the necessary element of change in human affairs, and of the extent to which the remote and … the entirely potential … will have its full and functioning part in any immediate reality with which an individual may be seeking to come to terms.” The opposite degree is the fifth ofSagittarius, “An old owl in a tree” for which he references: “deeper and private potentialities,” while Dane Rudhyar adds that “the owl functions lucidly in the night aspect of existence.” I also like the way that Robert Hunter puts all of this: “Row, Jimmy, row. / Gonna get there, I don’t know. / Seems a common way to go – / Get down and row, row, row, row, row.”

So while the road is rocky and the height to which it leads more than a bit cold and bleak, it is comforting to recognize that the path that the cosmos is now asking you to tread will prove long-term rewarding, and ultimately necessary for your continued well-being.

Peace, magic mushrooms, sustainable man, Arc of Light, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Something to keep in mind…

# 2 – Oh I love hearing news like this! Not only are we starting to recognize theamazing healing properties of certain mushrooms, it turns out that little schroomies could be the eco-friendly answer to some major environmental issues…

http://screen.yahoo.com/more-than-mere-magic-mushrooms-28923764.html

# 3 – For the next 24 hours you can experience Arc of Light for free (BTW, I’m listening to it as I type this and it’s lovely!)…

This personal attunement music was conceived and performed around the Spring vernal equinox, on which day and night are of equal length. This highly charged event represents the continued rebirth of nature, both physically and spiritually. The intent of Arc of Light is to remind ourselves of our connection to our higher source and our need to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe.

This bio-sonic music is performed on sacred global instruments and and is tuned and correlated to the lower and upper octaves of electro magnetic radiation. This incorporates color (light), fragrance, as well as the movements of the planets and other geo-physical phenomenon. By utilizing instruments for their psycho-spiritual properties, Brian is able to elicit the power of emotion, resonance and entrainment, thus developing a synergistic approach to bring about the coherence of our Human Energy Field.

This Bio-Sonic music can re-pattern our brains and nervous system, as well as the endocrine glands and corresponding chakras.  Arc of Light acts as a wave guide for consciousness with the power to slow down of time and increase our awareness of our true selves.

This Bio-Sonic album comes in 2 parts, both 30 minutes long. Today you can hear one part, Passage of Peace, for FREE

The album contains no brainwave entrainment – can be heard anytime, anyplace …and by anyone!

To listen for free (next 24 hours), just go here.

# 4 – A stimulating, thought-provoking little video titled Sustainable Man VS The Federal Reserve

# 5 – And a little Abe to end on….

When you are really in the flow with your Inner Being, ideas come easily—they are implemented easily. It’s fun while you are in the process of them, and it doesn’t matter how they unfold; and nothing can go wrong, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t get it done, it’s just fun to do it. Your Inner Being feels no limit. So, anything that feels like limits is something that you have self-imposed.—Abraham
