New Years Eve


How are we doing- waiting patiently for the New Year of 2011 to commence? This upcoming year is a distinct change from any other year so far in our lifetimes... it seems to be a bridge year into 2012- which is THE YEAR we have been waiting for, fearing and anticipating either a rapture or the end.

2010

Another year almost done! The blizzard tells us, it is not going easily! 2010- Tough to the end! How was this year for you? It was Zen for me, which is exactly what I intended at the beginning! Even driving in the cold, freezing and blowing snow today on my way home, when most were having a hard time, taking a long time, etc... The way was opened to me, the road was fine- no slipping or sliding (plenty of ice, though)- it was as if Angels were making a way for my trusty car to glide on through! I have really enjoyed the Zen! Namaste

Between Celebrations

This week, between celebrations, we all gear down, rest, relax, reflect and recharge. Starting to think about resolutions for the new, incoming year, as well as renumeration of successes in this outgoing year. What have we accomplished in 12 months? What is it we really want to do next? These are the 12 Days of Christmas of old, and our modern between holiday period.

Christmas


Christmas is my favorite time of the year! Blessings abound for everyone, everywhere! It is a special, sacred time for all of humanity, whether or not they are Christians. The proof of this is in the ancient as well as modern celebrations and overwhelming generosity of all people during this season. This is The Christ Consciousness present in us all. Be a Light in our world and do something really special that will bring a smile and happiness to a child or someone in need~ You will be Blessed Beyond Belief!

CST 12:33am
MST 11:33pm
PST 10:33pm

This is Right On, as always- by Patricia Cota Robles:
December 21, 2010 - A POWERFUL OPPORTUNITY!
"We are in the midst of an incredible influx of Light. The Internet is buzzing with the fact that tonight we will experience not only the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, but also a very rare Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. This eclipse takes place within 2 degrees of the Galactic Center which will open a mighty portal from the Core of Creation. The Light of God will flow through this portal and initiate pivotal changes that will affect all Life evolving on this planet.Geoff Chester of the U.S. Naval Observatory inspected a list of eclipses going back 2,000 years for NASA, and he reports, "Since Year 1, I can only find ONE previous instance of an eclipse matching the same calendar date as the Solstice, and that is 1638, Dec. 21."According to the Company of Heaven, it is impossible to overestimate the potential for positive change that Humanity will cocreate by taking advantage of this Cosmic Moment. There are myriad activities of Light taking place all over the world during the next 48 hours. ALL of them are very important.In addition to these events, the Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth are asking us to empower the CAUSE of Divine Love that has recently been established on Earth. We can assist in this vitally important Divine Plan by participating in the powerful meditation and invocation that was given to Humanity by our Father-Mother God and the Company of Heaven. Through the wondrous Gift of this powerful meditation, every person on the planet is initiated into a Higher Order of Service to Humanity and the Light. This will greatly enhance our ability to cocreate the patterns of perfection for the New Earth in the physical world form."

One week until Christmas!

Packages mailed, cards written, cookies baked, house decorated, presents under the tree! Let the good times roll! Party up, but stress down for your health... Do things different this year, maybe don't do so much, listen to your own Christmas music, find your own yule log, invent a new family tradition this year, eat your family's or ancestor's ethnic food, get tips or recipes from your grandma, or great grandma. Find a quiet, sacred place for yourself to relax and go there often this season! Spend quality time with loved ones, maybe interview an older relative, make a memory book, or jar full of individual memories to give to a special someone! Don't worry- Christmas is always different, and always great!

Great Adventures in Mercury Retrograde

Things that are a sure deal, really are not so sure anymore, what is moving ahead, is really falling behind, timing is everything and this seems to be wrong timing... thus are the days of mercury going retrograde. This all began on 12-10-10 and will be with us through December. So buckle up for the roller coaster ride! Just chalk it up to adventures in your life, as I am- (sigh)

New Moon in Sagittarius Today


This wise article is from Molly Hall, About.com astrology:


Your Vision
The luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in fiery Sagittarius for this fresh start. The New Moon in Sagittarius at 13 degrees, brings burning impressions to the psyche. These hint at a future destination -- watch closely for one that rings true to your soul. Sagittarius is about fusion without knowing how it happens. Dots get connected, and what you're aware of fuses into a focused intention. And it's about being loyal to your own sense of what's true.
When you trust your instincts, life becomes an adventure, and one where new information expands you, rather than overwhelms you. Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius reminds us that life can always be New, because there's always more to learn and experience.

Trusting Life
Sagittarius is a joyful sign that tends to risk, because of a trust in how life is unfolding. Let the New Moon revive your faith! One path to trust is asking for guidance and waiting for the signs.
At Conscious Media Network this month, there's a timely discussion about calling on angels and expecting synchronicity. Naturopathic doctor and author Jean Slatter talks of hiring the heavens, for help with specific goals. This puts you in dialogue with helping allies, in a way that's fun, where no need is too small. This takes the parking spot goddess a step further, to the concept of hiring a celestial staff -- personal trainer, style consultant, travel agent and so on.
This got me thinking of how we could ask for a specialist for certain astrological transits, or to draw out the energies of a underutilized gift in our charts. If you're wanting the power of an elemental (fire, earth, air or water), call on an angel that's a master of that energy. This could especially help if you're missing grounding (earth), inspiration (fire), emotional connection (water) or clarity (ideas).
This New Moon in Sagittarius can remind us that our spiritual life doesn't have to be heavy. But if you're in the dark night, call on comforting angels. I felt their arms around me once in my darkest hour, and I know they're closer than we think they are. And with this lunation in the sign of friends, we can be energized by the muses and angelic company now. Let's create our own experiment in divine intervention!

Big Picture
This is a magic moment of seeing into the structure of everything in your life. Mercury the messenger is in weighty Capricorn, and at the New Moon is aligned with all-knowing Pluto. Make the most of this revelatory moment, by quieting the chatter.
Spend time with people who can handle the truth. This is key, since the frenetic energies afoot now give us a zillion ways to be distracted, or stay in fear. The sextile from Venus Scorpio to this Mercury-Pluto conjunction guides us instinctively to those we can be real with.

Prepare for Launch
In some ways, this month's energies lighten our load for lift off in January (4th) for the third Jupiter-Uranus conjunction. We're asked to shake off what's become limiting, so we can soar and get excited about the future. Uranus goes direct later on the day of the New Moon. This can accelerate the currents of growth, in the area you choose to aim your focus toward.
It's one of waking up and coming together with those that 'vibe' on your same frequency. Your own consciousness is your treasure, and it leads you to like minds and hearts. It's harder to "hang" with those that are out of synch.
The New Moon can inspire us to step through a door, and seek out those that resonate. That word is overused, but can be like music, and sound. Is it a harmony -- does it make a resounding vibration? Or is it somehow off-key, and harsh to the spirit?

Discernment Leads to Stability
Saturn Libra is sextile both luminaries, to further activate the desire to live with integrity, and in line with our ideals. This helps in being discerning with what we read, hear, see. Saturn is the planet of dedication, commitment. And this New Moon is a stunner for consecrating yourself -- making sacred -- your commitment to your own highest truth.
It's not the easiest path in this time of chaos, but Saturn's discipline is there to draw from. Did we not ask to be part of this incredible moment in time? Perhaps this New Moon can re-invigorate the idea that it's an adventure. And Saturn's presence at the New Moon, adds to its potency as one for deeply internal, but very animated soul journeying.

First Snow

It is here! It has arrived! The first snow of the season! Our Colorado snow is dry, blowing, cold snow- not the delicate flowers and patterns of snowflakes of which we made cutouts in school. This blowing snowing weather makes you want to stay in bed, not get up and drive on the icy roads to go anywhere. Turn up the heat and get a cup of tea! Old Man Winter comes calling at the door again.

Happy Thanksgiving


America gives thanks today for all our blessings, bounty and freedoms! Lets Celebrate! We are The Americans- the first people ever to have a national holiday to give thanks!

According to History.com:

George Washington was the first president to declare Thanksgiving as an American Holiday! During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress designated one or more days of thanksgiving a year, and in 1789 George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation by the national government of the United States; in it, he called upon Americans to express their gratitude for the happy conclusion to the country’s war of independence and the successful ratification of the U.S. Constitution. His successors John Adams and James Madison also designated days of thanks during their presidencies.

In November 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford organized a celebratory feast and invited a group of the fledgling colony’s Native American allies, including the Wampanoag chief Massasoit. Now remembered as American’s “first Thanksgiving”—although the Pilgrims themselves may not have used the term at the time—the festival lasted for three days. While no record exists of the historic banquet’s exact menu, the Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow wrote in his journal that Governor Bradford sent four men on a “fowling” mission in preparation for the event, and that the Wampanoag guests arrived bearing five deer.

Elder William Brewster, also mentioned at History.com and in the history books, was my ancestor who came over on The Mayflower. (born 1567, England—died April 1644, Plymouth, Mass.) leader of the Plymouth Colony in New England He accompanied the first group of Pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620. William Brewster, the only university-trained member of the Plymouth community, was the real leader of the church. As its senior elder he dominated the formulation of its doctrines, worship, and practices. He was not a magistrate, but by virtue of his close association with the governor, William Bradford, he played a major role in civil as well as religious affairs. Needless to say, Thanksgiving has always held a special place in my heart and the heart of my family! In everything, give thanks!

Direct Day


This is what I call Direct Day! Double Direct Day, even! Jupiter and Venus both go direct today- they have both been retrograde... did you notice yourself reviewing things from the past, reflecting and daydreaming? Thats the retrograde process. Now Jupiter, going direct increases our Luck, pushing forward all things lucky and fortunate, while Venus, also going direct on the same day, increases our Love and abundance!

New Moon, Fall Back in Time


Our New Moon is on the edge of time- just in time to fall back in time. Another November Fall Back to Standard Time. We now have only 4 months in normal, regular, standard time. What do you think this does to us, always springing forward, falling back, traveling across time zones- ahead of time or behind the time...

I believe all this movement of time makes us a slave to time. Always working longer hours (overtime), having daylight longer, so we can get more done, nights are shorter and filled with activity. No wonder sleeping is getting harder to do! Lack of sleep is a very big problem for many, as well as aging faster and faster- are you in a hurry???

Happy Halloween!


All Hallows Eve is upon us yet again! The revelers are collecting bags of sweets on their travels of trick or treats! Remember All Saints Day tomorrow, then All Souls Day, when this veil between the dimensions is thinned, and our loved ones who passed on can be communed with this week!

Full Moon in Aries Again!


Tonight is another full moon in Aries, and the last of these series. The Aries Full Moons are like bookends with a Libra New Moon in the center! A new series of moon pairs begin next month. Pairs= New Moon/Full Moon.

Moon 10: The Center (Harvest Moon)
September 8 - October 7, 2010
New Moon in Virgo 9-8, Full Moon in Aries 9-23
Moon 11: Life Cycles (Hunters Moon)
October 7 - November 5, 2010
New Moon in Libra 10-7, Full Moon in Aries 10-22

"Seeding a new relationship paradigm...
The constant process of life cycles—birth, growth, seed, death, birth—provide us earth-beings carrying the cloak of form an opportunity to engage in creating the next version, a re-vision, of the ways in which we relate to each other and ourselves.
The Moon, Sun, Mercury and Saturn all in Libra at this New Moon portal is bringing a strong focus to balance in our relationships on all levels—with self, personal, at work, national, global. We simply need to be willing to release old notions of how things “should” be or have been, and open ourselves to and plant the seeds for new ways of healthy interactions.
The autumn cycle in the northern hemisphere is the optimal time for scattering seeds-of-intention for a new relationship paradigm, and the spring cycle in the southern hemisphere for sowing these seeds. Will you choose to scatter and sow seeds for this new paradigm? Will you choose to experience a life that is ecstatically connected to Source, a connection that brings balance in the face of fear or stress?
Libran prana energy at this portal is on our side for successfully implementing and attaining balance and harmony." 13newmoons.com

New Moon, New Reality

Libra is the sign of this new moon- balance and harmony, ready to take off between two Aries Full Moons. Old reality falls away, New Reality is now active!

Full Moon, Harvest Moon, Autumn Equinox, International Day of Peace, Jupiter and Uranus Conjunct the Sun!

What an awesome day! So many Cosmic Attractions today! Where do I start? This Full Moon is The Harvest Moon, and so bright! It is keeping many of us from sleeping! It is also in Aries, so many brand new and brilliant ideas are now coming in! The next New Moon is also in Aries, so we will see the next new thing manifesting at that time. The Harvest Moon is what the full moon is called when it is close to the Autumn Equinox- it is also close to the earth, so it appears very large. The Equinox is the rare day that our earth stands straight up on the axis- you can literally stand an egg up most of the day- night and day are perfectly balanced, and so must we be, as well. So this is the special day of peace. We can meditate and be in balance and harmony with the entire Earth, Moon, Sun, Jupiter and Uranus, with Venus as the Evening Star bringing us all blessings of peace, prosperity and abundance! Happy Peace Day.

7 Keys, 7 Universal Laws

I love this article from Kathryn Cassidy on the Seven Magic Keys! Read and enjoy! I am excited that these Keys and Laws reflect Mighty Manifesting, which is what Intenders of the Highest Good Circle portrays and performs every day! ~Laurie

The Seven Magic Keys
"From the very first time I read about the Seven Universal Laws I was spellbound by the wisdom contained within the them. If you are unfamiliar with these Laws, which come originally from translations of ancient hermetic texts, you may like to watch a 3 minute video which I have put together at KathrynCassidy.com."

THE SEVEN UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES/LAWS
The words in the video inspire us because they resonate within at a very deep level. However the use of the word Magic in the title of this article should be properly understood. Magic in this context is not aligned with the word illusion but with the ability to invoke the forces that lie dormant within us all; forces that unite us with the 'All that is' - sometimes known as the Divine.
It strikes me however that the poetic, but archaic, text of The Kybalion (the book from which the Laws are taken) requires a more up-to-date translation. Much has already been made in the popular press of some of the laws i.e. The Law of Attraction, which is an amalgamation of the Principles of Correspondence and Vibration, but what about the other laws? How can we discover how they are working in our life and put them to use? Well you don't have to get all new-agey or start pacing out 5 pointed stars - although Harry Potter did have the number 7 on the back of his jacket because JK Rowling knows a thing or two about esoteric wisdom - but no, none of that. All you have to do is open your eyes and ears a little wider to the world around you and your interactions with it.
So, you may like to get hold of a nice new notebook. This shows commitment and willingness to dedicate yourself to recording your insights. Your pen will act as your magic wand because writing things down tends to impress them into the consciousness more strongly than just reading about them ever can. If you can commit each of the Laws to paper and follow my exercises below you are guaranteed to become more cognizant of how all seven of the laws permeate throughout your existence and shape your world.
One word of friendly warning though. Possessing knowledge of the keys requires intent, application, total honesty and most of all courage, because each key once turned will quite possibly take you into places you might at times prefer not to explore; your inner being.
If you persevere however you can use this information to transform your life from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
LAW 1: Mind (as well as elements and metals) may be transmuted from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. The All is Mind the Universe is Mental.
Here the message concerns the practice of Alchemy. The word Alchemy applies to manipulation of elements and substances in order to understand the constituents of nature. This practice continues today in laboratories all over the world but is now called Chemistry. However alchemy has a dual meaning - it also applies to the transmutation of the lower nature of the soul; the process of distilling the spiritual higher self, from the lower, coarser more slowly vibrating character.
The 1st Key is to understand that everything which happens in physicality is initiated at the level of the mind and it is the mind that produces our reality and the matter we encounter. If we take control of our thoughts (mind) and appreciate our interconnectedness to The Collective Mind, also known as the ALL; The Divine and even God, we can literally transmute - change - our life for the better.
Exercise: Try and separate what you observe from the person who is observing it. Where does that person reside? Are 'you' in your head, in your shoes, in your elbow? Where is the part of you that you call your personality? Looking at yourself and talking to yourself in a mirror often increases your awareness that your brain is housed in physical form, but 'you' are not. Read as many books about the power of the mind as you can. There are books available through the Spiritual Growth link on my newsletter, or take a look at The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy and A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
Write down a list of one thing you would like to draw into your life (leaving out money for now!) Start by getting clear about what it is you want - be it a person, condition or event. Use visualisation and written affirmations. Then, for a period of a week, write down all of the synchronicities or coincidences that have caught your attention during each day, regarding your initial desire. You may start to see TV adverts or overhear conversations; observe book titles or receive a phonecall, all of which in some way bring you closer to your desire - or appear to offer you clues as to how to move towards your goal. All these things will demonstrate to you that your thoughts are indeed beginning to attract the corresponding reality into your world. And, if that is so your mind must be connected to something beyond your brain!
The more you can recognise and believe that your thoughts are an energy that permeate everything in the Universe and are not boundaried by your skull, the more quickly you will feel empowered to start manifesting the conditions you need, and to change the things you thought were out of your control.
The secret is to know that your mind creates all the conditions you encounter and processes the way you perceive them. Every thought you have about someone, whether good or bad, is received and unconsciously acknowledged. This is a two-way street. When you are suddenly taken by a desire to call someone for example you can be sure that they were recently thinking of you too. Thus this is the Principle of Mentalism. It may also be called the Law of Pure Potentiality as all the laws are ultimately part of the ALL and the ALL encompasses everything that is.
LAW 2: As below, so above, as above, so below.
The 2nd Key is to appreciate that there is no separation. The Mind of the ALL flows through everything at every level of existence from the smallest to the largest and vice versa. If something is happening to you on Earth there will be a corresponding event in the Heavens AND at every level in between which is why the law is extended in Hermetic texts to include as within, so without. Whatever is happening within you will find a corresponding event outside of you - and vice versa. This is possibly one of the most difficult laws to understand but the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus assert that all information about a man can be found within a single drop of his blood and that within a man is a representation of the entire universe.
Exercise: To further exercise your understanding of this law watch this short Java Video In this you will see how there is very little difference between the inner cells of nature and the outer universe. To see this in action read any book on Homeopathy and Herbalism. You can also read my article on correspondences here.
The secret is to know that everything you meet in life - everything - has a correspondence to something going on within you.
The food you choose to eat; the people you associate with; the atmosphere around you…. 'You are what you eat. You are what you meet'. Illness is another clue of a reciprocal link of your inner world to your outer world or vice versa. read Louise Hay ' You Can Heal Your Life' to find out more.
Charles Haanel had this to say:
"The majority of mankind lives in the world without; few have found the world within and yet it is the world within that makes the world without; it is therefore creative and everything you find in your world without has been created by your world within"
If you decide to take responsibility for your thoughts and what you are meeting you can never assign blame. Always see the world as if it is turning just for you. See that it is trying to show you where you are doing well and what you may need to pay a little more attention to in your life. Thus this key is also known as the Principle of Correspondence*.
*The as above so below also directly refers to planetary correspondences too but that is for another article.
LAW 3: Nothing rests. everything moves, everything vibrates:
The 3rd Key speaks of the frequencies that everything emits. All matter from your body to the chair that you sit on, the food you eat and the car that you drive is comprised of atoms moving (oscillating) at speeds that are invisible to our eyes. Vibration is also the mechanism that allows us to hear and see. Sound and light waves are just another form of vibrating energy. Everything we perceive is only the way it appears because that's how are brains are wired up to experience it. These speeds are not, however, invisible to what we commonly refer to as our sixth sense. This is the faculty that allows us to detect unseen energies and consciously raise and lower our vibration - we just need to give it attention.
'Where attention goes - energy flows'
In raising the natural vibration to a higher frequency, it has been found that one will attract people and events of a higher nature too. This happens through a process called Resonance. Think of the way you can turn a dial on a radio and pick up entirely different stations and programs simply by selecting a new frequency. The basic premise is exactly the same - you can see what vibration you must be sending out by noticing what you are receiving.
Exercise: When you meet someone for the first time, don't launch into immediate trivial chit chat. Take a breath and note what reactions you are feeling in your body. Do you feel jittery or calm? Do you feel uplifted or tired? Listen to the tone of their voice. What invisible information are you registering simply from the tonal quality of this person. Are they tired, stressed, happy? When we meet someone of a similar vibrational attunement we feel harmony - we feel good in their presence. We easily merge or blend with them and their energy. When there is a differing vibration we feel discordant - ill at ease.
Every single emotional reaction we have is just energy that is moving through us. So, if you work assiduously at recognising the feelings every encounter engenders in you, you will in time come to accurately know where your own vibrational level must presently be at. You'll instinctively know which activities, places and people raise you up and which lower you down. Again keep a diary or notebook until you start to automatically sense these invisible forces and feel empowered to use this knowledge to consciously change your own vibration in order to attract better circumstances.
The secret is that ‘like attracts like’ vibrations but high, light vibrations always transmute the lower, denser ones. So seek out uplifting books, people, events and even foods and avoid dark and dismal colours, people, attitudes and make the Law of Vibration work for you.
LAW 4: Everything is dual everything has its pair of opposites, like and unlike are the same opposites are identical in nature - just different in degrees.
The 4th Key is to know that everything has two ends but we must stop looking at everything as being linear - that is, as if it is measurable on a scale like a ruler. In truth everything is circular and there is no separation between the two ends. What goes around will eventually come around!
The Earth is round; our cells ; the cycles of nature, are all round. Nothing is straight. Opposites are identical in nature because at some juncture in a circle they must be joined together or contain a mirror of the other end. This is best demonstrated in the human life cycle. we all know that an old person is at the opposite end of the age spectrum but very similar, in terms of needs, to a baby.
Exercise: Look at an apple. Notice that you could never know where it begins and ends. True, you may see a small stalk, but the opposite side grew out of that stalk- once they were joined in a seed. Now go outside and look at a tree. If you were able to see the roots of the tree you would see that the branches above ground were being mirrored by the branches under the Earth, except in this instance we call them roots - there is an obvious correlation and similarity between opposite ends of the tree. The tree grew from one source and each end is now separated but only by degree - it is still one tree.
The only things you will find in life that are not either rounded (have no beginning and no end - and that philosophically includes humans) or don't have a common source and life cycle, are the things that are man-made. In everything in life we find polarity. Hot is opposite to cold but they are similar - at both ends of the scale they can burn you. Other polarities are up/down, on/off. How many more can you discern?
Spend time in contemplation of the well known Yin/Yang symbol and also think of times when you have laughed so hard you have cried, or got so angry you have laughed at yourself. Look at those who you reject because they seem so opposite in nature to you and see where in fact you are very similar but in varying degrees. The feminine girly girl who likes pink is very similar to the butch woman who has rejected her femininity. They have simple taken polar extremes of the same reject/accept scale. In astrology we see this law at work in the six pairs of signs: Aries/Libra, Taurus/Scorpio etc.
Use the law to self correct your life. When you are angry deliberately do something that makes you happy. If you meet unkind words offer its opposite, unconditional love. If you are sad seek out someone who is happy.
The secret within this law if to understand, yet again, that there is no linear measure of time, space, man or his experiences. However far apart in personality, beliefs or nature you seem to be from your fellow humans, (or those who have departed) you are joined; separated only in degree. This is the Principle of Polarity.
LAW 5: Everything flows, everything has its tides. All things rise and fall the pendulum has its swing.
The 5th Key. Now we are asked to consider the Law of Flow. This reminds us that if we would just let things move at their own rhythm and pace, they will move in harmony.
Exercise: Be alert for times when you step in and try and control events to fit an artificial timetable. Who is it who has determined this agenda and why? Are the reasons fear based? Control based? Ask yourself what is the worst thing that could happen if you surrender to the flow. We all know people who are moody. They are very reactive to this law but the serene person is balanced, allowing life to flow back and forth between both poles, never letting anything upset their own equilibrium. In practice this would entail you deliberately counter balancing by always looking for the good in what you perceive to be a 'bad' situation, whilst surrendering to the experience as a whole.
The secret is that from our limited perspective, if things don't go according to plan we feel as if they will drift into chaos. But consider this; maybe if the taxi is late and you are going to miss curtain up at the theatre or being late picking your kids up from school you have not seen how divine providence may have saved you from missing the rest of your life altogether! What if your taxi had arrived on time. Would your driver have taken another route and then got caught in a traffic jam that would have made you even more late? What if you had picked your kids up on time but then been in the path of an accident that you would otherwise have missed? Go with the flow. We should never assume that our agenda is better than that of the 'Divine'. Embrace the Principle of Rhythm and trust it.
LAW 6: Every cause has an effect, every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law. Chance is but a name for Law not yet recognised. Nothing escapes Law.
The 6th Key. Now at first sight, this one is very similar to Law 5 but there are subtle differences. This law asks us to consider the chain of events that lies behind 'chance' - a chain of events that we can never trace back to the very beginning and therefore we can not know where we are in its cycle. Therefore when things happen we call them chance because we can't see the connections.
Astrologers know the cycles of planets and can inform a client at what stage they are in any cycle. This is because we can track the planet or extrapolate information about its movements from the understanding we have about planetary harmonics (periods). Anthropologists can tell us which period we are at in our evolution but they do it on linear scale, as the understanding they have about evolution does not encompass a cyclical model.
This law also embraces the subject of Karma. We know that we had 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great grandparents and 16 great, great grandparents and so on which means that at some time way back in history when the population was very small we were all either related or from families or tribes that may have known each other. An indeterminate amount of people have a connection to you but we cannot know what they set in motion.
With this in mind then every unexplainable event is merely something that may have been caused at another time in thought and we now experience the effect. The chain may be visible, upon closer examination, or invisible because of our limitations, but one thing is sure it is connected to our interaction with the ALL.
Exercise: See if you can rebuild the chain of something that appeared to be a coincidence to you. Write down all the events that had to happen in order for your coincidence to occur. See if you can identify the cause of the effect.
The Secret - is quite simply that nothing happens that is not ordered. Chaos and randomness is not an option!
Every thought is a cause and every condition an effect
LAW 7; Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles. Gender manifests on all planes.
The 7th Key Gender (in the Hermetic sense) and the sex of something are not the same thing. Gender means to generate. Your sex is a manifestation of your ability to generate on the physical plane. The Hermetic teachings are fascinating in this regard for they point out that positive corpuscles or electrons seem to exert an influence upon negative corpuscles, causing the latter to assume certain combinations and thus 'generate' an atom. This is obviously analogous to the masculine energies exciting the feminine causing her to 'generate' a baby.
I have long held a particular theory, as a result of this knowledge, that when a couple fail to naturally create a baby it could be because there is not the correct vibrational attunement or the woman is somehow blocking the male energy. She's not 'excited' enough - maybe biologically - but definitely at some unconscious level of the mental plane. Although this may stem back to the principle of cause and effect (karma).
Negative particles equate to the feminine energy and masculine particles equate to a positive charge. The former circles rapidly around the latter and as I say, it is the union which causes the birth of a new atom. Once it is formed it becomes a separate thing with certain properties. So we can see from Science that it is feminine energy that is the creative force but only when acted upon by the masculine energy. All embryo’s are initially female until acted on by a force that begins the process of masculinisation.
So this is The Principle of Gender operating on the plane of energy. Both poles are needed for generative ability. Hermeticists maintain that the force of gravity is another manifestation of this Principle.
Exercise: Ponder on the masculine (positive) and feminine (negative) dualities on the mental plane. If a negative thought circles rapidly around a positive one (but in this sense we are not talking about the good or bad quality of the thought but rather what they produce in combination) and it is the negative energy that creates 'something new' then what can you deduce from that? Really think about it before reading on.
I notice that many religions put their hands together when in prayer. Some schools of thought maintain the left side of the body has a negative charge and the right a positive one. Could we unconsciously know this to be true and in prayer we are completing a circuit of energy for Mind to operate through? Try it. See if you ability to manifest miracles increases with the traditional hand-together, prayer position.
The Secret. It can be seen that it is likely that positive and negative thought can be consciously manipulated to produce a new thought. If we look at the feminine principle as being the sub conscious, or receptive, mind and the masculine as the objective and active, suggestive mind, it can be seen that we should bring our attention to what is occurring in our subconscious in order to produce a change. So we don't try and eradicate one, we bring them together to create something new!
To change your mood or mental state - change your vibrationThe ALL is Mind; The Universe is Mental
* * * * *
That's it. That's all the Laws. Everything in the Universe falls into one of these categories whilst at the same time encompassing all seven. The laws permeate through all levels of existence and everything that seems so complicated is really very, very simple and can be summed up in a few words........
One principle of consciousness permeating the entire universe, occupying all space and being essentially the same kind at every level. That is The All

Grandparents Day

This day used to be on 9-11, before the terrorist attacks, now it is on 9-12. In any case, it is an important day to all the grandchildren! The grandmothers and grandfathers are, and alway have been a Godsend, a safety net, an ancestry for the children. The prayers of the grandparents for their grandchildren are sacred, and almost as powerful as the prayers from the mothers!

9-11, Sad Day- "Never Forget"


This is a sad day for all Americans- the day of the terrorist attacks in 2001. Remembering is hard, but very needed and the right thing to do- if we choose to forget, we choose to repeat the past...Never Forget!

New Moon, New Life

New Moon brings new life to all our desires! Almost out of Mercury retrograde... 4 more days!

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Full Moon in Pisces, Venus Max and Mercury Retrograde too!



August is so full of astrological, astronomical and astrodynamical happenings! Three more, then September is here!

Full moon in 1 Pisces, (the fish) on the 24th was an apogee moon, smaller than normal, and 15% smaller than the supermoon perigee. Pisces, as Virgo’s opposite, lives in the realm of Spirit and ideals rather than the mundane. Pisces opens the door to the worlds that lie within the soul and psyche. Virgo is practical and teaches us to create order, Pisces transcends everyday reality and ascends into more soulful experiences. Neither is better than the other– with the opposition- Sun in Virgo, Moon in Pisces- we must learn to create balance and integration.

Then there was the beginning of Mercury Retrograde on the 20th, which really started 3 days prior, on the 17th- I know because this is when my trusty car did not start! (Yes, it was a fuel pump) This will last until Sept 12... 3 weeks, as usual. This year just happens to have 4 Mercury Retrogrades, instead of 3, just like last year! Lucky us!

This new Venus Max cycle gets started with Venus as evening star (Venus Vesper or Venus Hesperus) reaching the maximum elongation east of the Sun at 12° Libra on the 20th (conjunct Mars and also in the middle of the Great 2010 T-Square/Grand Cross, AND same day as Mercury Retrograde beginning). Look into the western sky in the evening to see Venus- in Colorado, this is above the mountains... easy to find. This cycle lasts into next year, ending with Venus as the morning star.

Friday the 13th


"Boy, 13, hit by lightning on Friday 13th at 13.13pm"- headline from UK newspaper today!
Why is Friday the 13th Considered Unlucky by Many, Lucky by Some?
Many beliefs and superstitions have come down through the ages. The most widespread one is that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. There are people who refuse to start anything new, make a decision or even step out of the house, or bed on Friday the 13th. There are mixed feelings about the combination of Friday and the 13th. Many people consider the date 13 unlucky, while even the day Friday is considered unlucky. Friday has been debated upon since ancient times—being considered both lucky and unlucky. The sixth day of the week was dedicated to Venus by the ancient Romans. Later, this was adopted by the Norsemen. However, their translation for Venus was Frigg or Freya, Goddess of fertility and motherhood, and this gave rise to the name Friday. Soon, Friday came to be considered the luckiest day of the week. On the other hand, Friday was considered an unlucky day from a religious viewpoint, according to incidents in the Bible. Legend says that Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit on a Friday, they also died on a Friday. The Great Flood and the confusion at the Tower of Babel are believed to have begun on Fridays. Judas, who betrayed Jesus, was the thirteenth guest at the Last Supper. It is also believed that Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday. The combination of Friday and thirteen gave rise to the belief that Friday the 13th was an unlucky day. There were other reasons that made the 13th an unlucky date. The 13th demi-god, Loki, of the Scandinavians was evil, so they believed that 13 was an unlucky number. In ancient times, counting beyond 12 was considered strange, so the number 13 was thought of as unlucky. Ancient beliefs have given rise to superstitions related to days and dates, particularly regarding Friday the 13th. However, beliefs are also colored by individual experiences and perceptions, so while many consider Friday the 13th unlucky, some consider it lucky! Parskavedekatreaphobia and friggatriskaidekaphobia are two of the longest words in the English language. They are the two terms that are associated with the fear of Friday the 13th. The first word is the clinical term for the phobia, and the second is the fear of the number 13. For centuries, the number 13 has been considered to be unlucky. The Masons, who were feared by many in Europe because of the secrecy of their society held 13 as a sacred number. The early Christian Church believed that 13 was an unlucky number and feared it because they associated it with femininity. Women will usually have 13 menstrual cycles in a year, and the early pagan religions held the number in high regard because of this. Friday has also always been considered as an unlucky day. There are many biblical scholars that believe that Eve gave Adam the fruit on a Friday, Cain killed Able on a Friday, Abraham died on a Friday, and that the world was flooded on a Friday. While there is no proved documentation as to these occurrences happening on a Friday, the fear cannot be denied. It is estimated that $800 - $900 million is lost in business revenues on Friday the 13th because of people not flying or handling business as normal. The British Medical Journal has proved in a study that there is a spike in automobile accidents on Friday the 13th. Modern culture has progressed this fear with the Friday the 13th movie series. The fear that there may be some kind of unwelcome death on this day is prevalent in some people's minds. The fear of Friday the 13th is rooted more in urban legend then in fact. 13, and Friday the 13th, have only been 'unlucky' for 700 years. Before that, they were 'lucky'. Among the reasons the number was sacred: its place in the Fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13...), Sacred Geometry, which, for reasons unknown to many, the natural world strongly document. Friday was also considered sacred in ancient times. The reason for the change: on Friday, October 13th, 1307, all across Europe, the Knights Templar were summarily executed for sympathizing with pagans (heresy). The entire order was wiped out by Papal decree in the most coordinated military action in history. Now 13 is considered by some Christians to be 'the devil's number'. This, despite the fact that Jesus and his 12 disciples numbered 13 holy men. Unless one believes in a more historical Jesus - in which case, Mary Magdalene makes it 13 disciples. Because of its history, the number 13 has come to be associated with death. For example, a proper noose has 13 wraps in its coil, the steps leading up to a gallows traditionally number 13. So influential was "bloody" Friday the 13th, the majority of skyscrapers do not have a 13th floor. In Florence, Italy, there are no '13' addresses. The houses between 12 and 14 are labeled "12 1/2". 13 is so unlucky, in fact, that dice only roll up to 12, clocks have 12 hours, many foods come in dozens, and even Christmas has only 12 days. All this just so that no one will have to deal with a '13th'. To the ancient Egyptians, life was a quest for spiritual ascension which unfolded in stages - 12 in this life and a 13th beyond, thought to be the eternal afterlife. The number 13 therefore symbolized death - not in terms of dust and decay, but as a glorious and desirable transformation. Though Egyptian civilization perished, the symbolism conferred on the number 13 by its priesthood survived, only to be corrupted by subsequent cultures who came to associate 13 with a fear of death instead of a reverence for the afterlife.
By the way, the 13 year old boy struck by lightening survived- Lucky boy!
How was your Friday the 13th?

2010 Perseid Peak & Planet Alignment


Perseids and Planets peak tonight beginning at sundown when Venus, Saturn, Mars and the Crescent Moon in the western twilight are aligned in conjunction. All four heavenly bodies will fit in a circle about 10 degrees diameter in the dusky colors of sunset. These planets will hang together in the western sky until 10 pm. When they leave, you should stay, because that is when the Perseid meteor shower begins. From 10 pm until dawn, meteors will fly across the starry sky displaying even more exciting night light than the planetary get-together. These meteors are called Perseids because they fly out of the constellation Perseus, from a point called Radiant. Every August the perseids put on a spectacular light show! Make a wish on a falling star...

New Leo Moon


This New Moon is in Leo! ROAR! In like a lion, out like a lamb...
This is a Supermoon, otherwise known as very influential moon!
According to Richard Nolle of Astropro.com, who originated the term of supermoon:
"After a period of relative calm, this month begins a series of SuperMoons, and the associated surge in headlining powerful storms and seismic activity. The new series starts with the new moon at 17° 25’ Leo on the 10th. This one is, as mentioned earlier, very much in the throes of the 2010 T-Square: Venus and Mars are conjunct Saturn, opposing Jupiter and Uranus, squaring Pluto. The tight Venus-Mars tie-in to this SuperMoon speaks of strong passions – great for a runaway romance or a lusty liaison, not so great in the case of runaway jealousy, hate or avarice. Something to keep in mind in one’s personal life during this particular SuperMoon shock window: sometimes lust turns to bloodlust, which is why Mars and Venus both represent warriors in one culture or another. So it’s probably not a bad idea to keep your cool (and your guard up) during this alignment too. When feelings run high and blood runs hot, it’s no time to be complacent. The Venus and Mars SuperMoon tie-in works on the collective level, as well as the individual. Border clashes, terrorist attacks, hijackings and military confrontations triggered by posturing and propaganda that gets out of control . . . we’re already under a strong Mars pattern early in August, so there are probably a few extra outbursts around the time of the SuperMoon on the 10th.
The August 10 SuperMoon has a wide effective geocosmic shock window, beginning on the 5th as the Moon’s north declination peak approaches; and continuing into the 13th. Expect the usual: unusually strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation, extreme tidal surges, and of course a raft of newsworthy magnitude 5+ quakes and volcanic eruptions. I suspect that high winds may be this particular SuperMoon’s strong suit – think typhoons and hurricanes, for example - but that’s not to downplay the other correlates.
It’s cosmic in scale and therefore global in scope of course, but the August 10 SuperMoon’s astro-locality map shows a few areas of special vulnerability. These include a horizon arc that runs through the Pacific Northwest and the east African coast, and a couple of longitudinal arcs from the southern tip of Greenland through eastern Brazil in the western hemisphere and from Siberia due south down through central Australia in the eastern hemisphere. Do not feel complacent if you’re not in one of these zones during the August 5-13 geocosmic shock window. The skies, seas and crust of the whole planet respond to a SuperMoon, so there’s not place that’s completely off the target list. Being ready for heavy weather should be de rigueur at times like this. If traveling, be aware of the likelihood that schedules will be disrupted by weather-related delays – especially with the Mercury Max going on at the time. Have alternatives, double-check everything!"

CME, Solar Flares

Check out spaceweather.com as well as NASA website- we are in the solar tsunami today! It is a G-3 class Geomagnetic Storm! This will cause some colorful Auroras in the north, but the rest of us have to watch out for extreme sunburns! I have been wanting to blog about the dangers of our sun in this situation, and here we are...
Some of my friends have had cancers taken off their skin recently, they are lucky- all was removed, many people are not so lucky. Please get a skin check up, yearly, if possible. Develop melanin slowly, by tanning a little each day to build up the pigment in your skin, and stay out of the sun during days like today when a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) from the sun is occurring. See right side of this blog for daily updates on the sun, moon, earth, as this is Very Important to us all!

Grand Cardinal Cross

Be back to blog soon... new baby is coming!
OK, back now!

Today is the heart of some very powerful aspects between Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, The Grand Cardinal Cross.
This big Cardinal alignment of the summer reaches a peak this week with Saturn already having moved into position and Mars and the Moon lining up as well.

Lynn Hayes says:

"The intensity of this alignment is likely to peak around the 31st of July, when the Moon enters Aries and sets off the other planets, adding an emotional component that makes it all deeply personal, perhaps even for just a day or two. Mars, however, will remain in the picture throughout the first week of August so during this time it’s important that we remain very aware of where we are putting our energy. This can be an exhilarating time where we become passionately involved in something, but any time we have Mars interacting with Jupiter and Uranus there is some danger for the flaring of tempers and potential for accidents caused by reckless behavior.

After this point the intensity of the planetary energy begins to subside other than the final square of Saturn to Pluto on August 21st. This is a challenging aspect, but it’s the final phase of the cycle where it completes the work and moves on."

Yes, all these planets lined up well for a very fast and easy childbirth, Baby and Mom are Healthy & Happy, Nana Laurie is very Grateful for an Awesome Intention manifested!

How are We doing?


How are We All doing after the Solar Eclipse? I have noticed lots of changes in these last 11 days, and many more to come- that's for sure! Those abusing power are starting to fall, slowly rolling downhill, like a snowball, picking up more speed, and accumulating more snow, as it rolls downward. Earth changes speeding up, faster all the time! Did you notice how many earthquakes yesterday? Follow the USGS Seismic Monitor on this blog, and you will see how many occur every day! Hurricane season, torrential rainstorms and tornado's are happening more now than ever... not to mention a few big oil spills!

Yes, just how are we doing, remember- we are all in this together!

New Moon Solar Eclipse


Today, over the South Pacific Ocean, at 3:33pm EST is one powerful Solar Eclipse, the likes that we have not seen since 1991! If you look back to that time in your life, and compare it to your life today, can you see how far you have come? Then the next Solar Eclipse like this one will be in 2029. Every 19 years this big one is occurring!
See NASA website for more info on the astronomy and picture above. See Zodiacart.com for astronomy and astrology of this Solar Eclipse and other interesting current events.

America


America~ My Country 'Tis of Thee

1
My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!
2
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
3
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
4
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.

5 (added to celebrate Washington's Centennial
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.

6 Additional verses by Henry van Dyke
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers' mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,--
All thy domains.
7
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North's sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!

(Hingham, [Mass.]: Elijah B. Gill, 1843), Hymn 17 6s & 4s (Tune – America.) pages 28–29. Some of these verses can be heard in the Arizona State University recording of the Antislavery Ensemble.
8
My country,' tis of thee,
Stronghold of slavery, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Where men man’s rights deride,
From every mountainside thy deeds shall ring!
9
My native country, thee,
Where all men are born free, if white’s their skin;
I love thy hills and dales,
Thy mounts and pleasant vales;
But hate thy negro sales, as foulest sin.
10
Let wailing swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees the black man’s wrong;
Let every tongue awake;
Let bond and free partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
11
Our father’s God! to thee,
Author of Liberty, to thee we sing;
Soon may our land be bright,
With holy freedom’s right,
Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King.
12
It comes, the joyful day,
When tyranny’s proud sway, stern as the grave,
Shall to the ground be hurl’d,
And freedom’s flag, unfurl’d,
Shall wave throughout the world, O’er every slave.
13
Trump of glad jubilee!
Echo o’er land and sea freedom for all.
Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
“Glory to God on high,” at Slavery’s fall.

"My Country, 'Tis of Thee", also known as "America", is an American patriotic song, whose lyrics were written by Samuel Francis Smith. The melody is that of the British national anthem, God Save the King, although Smith encountered it by way of a German adaptation. The song served as a de facto national anthem of the United States before the adoption of "The Star-Spangled Banner" as the official anthem.

Patriotic Poems and Songs


Star Spangled Banner

National Anthem Of The USA

Written by Francis Scott Key, 1814

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mist of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream 'Tis the star-spangled banner. Oh! long may it wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a country should leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation, Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n-rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our Trust" And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Happy 4th of July!


Independence Day in our USA!
America the Beautiful
Words by Katharine Lee Bates, Melody by Samuel Ward

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! O beautiful for pilgrim feet Whose stern impassioned stress A thoroughfare of freedom beat Across the wilderness! America! America! God mend thine every flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law! O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife. Who more than self their country loved And mercy more than life!America! America! May God thy gold refine Till all success be nobleness And every gain divine! O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! O beautiful for halcyon skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the enameled plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee Till souls wax fair as earth and air And music-hearted sea! O beautiful for pilgrims feet, Whose stem impassioned stress. A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness! America! America! God shed his grace on thee Till paths be wrought through wilds of thought By pilgrim foot and knee! O beautiful for glory-tale Of liberating strife When once and twice, for man's avail Men lavished precious life! America! America! God shed his grace on thee Till selfish gain no longer stain The banner of the free! O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God shed his grace on thee Till nobler men keep once again Thy whiter jubilee!
America the Beautiful is a patriotic hymn that originated as a poem written by Katharine Lee Bates in the summer of 1893 after a trip to Colorado Springs, and particularly inspired by her view from Pikes Peak. The poem first appeared in The Congregationalist in 1895 and was set to music months later. Bates simplified the text in 1904 and made changes to the third stanza years later to create the words that are known today. From over seventy musical settings, the one now best known was written by S. A. Ward. Many citizens have lobbied Congress to make it the national anthem. The beloved hymn was performed frequently following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. Thank God I am an Awesome American!

BURSTING THE BONDS OF OUR LOWER HUMAN EGO
by Patricia Diane Cota-Robles
July 1, 2010
http://eraofpeace.org/
In the past few mailings I have been discussing the opportunity that is being provided this summer for Humanity to free ourselves from the paralyzing grip of our lower human egos. It is impossible for us to grasp the magnitude of what it will mean in our lives when this fear-based, fragmented aspect of our personality is no longer manipulating and controlling us through fear and the belief in lack and limitation. Since our fall from Grace aeons ago, the vast majority of Humanity has been functioning from the distorted belief that our human egos and our physical bodies are who we are, and that the physical plane of Earth is all that exists. In reality, nothing could be further from the Truth.We are multidimensional and multifaceted Sons and Daughters of God, and we have been invested with the creative faculties of thought and feeling, as well as the gift of free will. The Divine Intent of these gifts is for us to become cocreators with our Father-Mother God by learning to create patterns of perfection in the physical world of form, thus manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. For millennia our human egos have fought tooth and nail to keep us from remembering this Truth. Our egos know that once we remember who we truly are, we will give our God Selves dominion of our Earthly bodies once again. Then our egos will no longer be able to manipulate our lives. Our human egos were formed Ages ago because we made the tragic decision to misqualify our gift of Life through negative thoughts, words, actions, and feelings. The dense and discordant frequencies of energy that were created by these negative expressions caused us to fall into such low vibrations that we lost conscious awareness of our God Selves and the Company of Heaven. We forgot that we are Children of God embodied on this planet to learn how to cocreate the wonders of Heaven on Earth. Without this sacred knowledge we developed a lower consciousness through which we formed an alternative perception of reality to try to explain our existence. This lower consciousness gradually evolved into our fragmented human egos. Our lower egos believe that they are in charge of our lives and that their purpose and reason for being is to gratify our physical senses. They also believe that whatever they need to do to fulfill that objective is appropriate, even if it means lying, cheating, stealing, or killing. Our human egos are mutated aspects of our personality that actually believe they have the right to do whatever is necessary to maintain control of our lives. To confirm this Truth, just think of the myriad times you have tried to improve your life by making positive changes and the incredible resistance you received from your ego. For instance, when you make a commitment to improve your diet, don't you immediately start craving everything you are not supposed to eat? When you decide to develop prosperity consciousness instead of focusing on lack and limitation, don't your financial challenges all of the sudden seem even more overwhelming? When you choose to live in harmony, don't things seem to surface out of the blue to push your buttons and make you angry? And worst of all, think of the interference you received from your ego when you began to awaken and truly remember that you are a Beloved Child of God. How many times after accepting that Truth about yourself did your brain chatter and your self talk say things like, “Who do you think you are kidding? Your life is in shambles. Your relationships are a mess, and you can't even pay your bills. How could you possibly be a Beloved and empowered Child of God?” All of these things are your human ego’s attempt to block your forward progress, because your ego knows that once your God Self takes command of your life it will no longer be able to manipulate or control you.For lifetimes the lies and interference from our human egos have trapped us and kept us from accepting the Truth of who we are and why we are on Earth. But this is a New Day, and the winds of change are upon us. People everywhere are awakening, and as they do they are reconnecting with their God Selves and lifting up in consciousness. This is creating an unstoppable shift of vibration that is affecting every man, woman, and child on Earth in a very positive way. Step by step, the adverse conditions of our fall from Grace are being reversed, and now we are being called to a higher service by our Father-Mother God and the entire Company of Heaven.The Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth have revealed that through innumerable activities of Light, which were victoriously accomplished through the unified efforts of the entire Company of Heaven and the embodied Lightworkers, Humanity has reached a frequency of vibration that will allow us to shatter the paralyzing grip our human egos have had on our physical bodies and our hearts and minds since our fall from Grace. The wheels for this wondrous unfolding Divine Plan have been set into motion, and we are now in the midst of the final stages of preparation.On June 21st, we experienced a very powerful Solstice in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres of Earth. The energy from this influx of Light built in momentum paving the way for a rare and very powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, which took place on June 26th. This celestial event involved not only the Lunar Eclipse which always creates a tremendous amplification of Divine Light, but also a very rare alignment of seven planets in a Grand Cross formation. There are literally hundreds of reports circulating on the Internet from spiritual astrologers who are talking about the powerful opportunities we are experiencing this summer. I have actually been reading about the astrological impact of the Lunar and Solar Eclipses and the planetary alignments that will take place during the summer of 2010 for several years. It is not by chance that this powerful moment is preceding the activity of Light that will help Humanity burst the bonds of our human egos once and for all.I know this seems remarkable, but we were always going to reach this moment through the process of our Ascension into the 5th-Dimensional Realms of Light. We just did not know when this magical opportunity would arrive. Well, now we know. This is the moment!Everything is comprised of energy, vibration, and consciousness, and our human egos vibrate at a very dense frequency of vibration. For the past several years Humanity’s God Selves have been accelerating the frequency of vibration in our physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies the maximum that Cosmic Law will allow in every 24-hour period. When, at an atomic cellular level, our Earthly bodies reach a frequency that is beyond the grasp of our egos, the bonds will be broken and our egos will no longer be able to control us the way they have in the past.Breaking the bonds of the paralyzing grip our human egos have had over us for lifetimes is the next vitally important step in the unfolding Divine Plan. An activity of Light that involves the God Selves of all Humanity and the entire Company of Heaven is now underway. Please step back, take a deep breath, and release any interference your human ego may be using to try to prevent you from understanding the magnitude of the opportunity at hand. Allow the Divinity within your heart to expand and expand as you read these words with an open heart and an open mind. Miracles are happening and we are receiving more assistance from the Company of Heaven than ever before.The two weeks between the Lunar Eclipse and the Grand Cross planetary alignment on June 26th, and the Solar Eclipse that will take place on July 11th, will be a very intense time of purging, releasing, and purification. This will be true for each of us individually and for all Humanity collectively. Our God Selves will guide us through whatever experiences we personally need to help us raise our vibrations beyond the grasp of our human egos. Listen to your heart and pay close attention to your inner promptings. Is your God Self guiding you to improve your diet, your relationships, your attitude, your frame of mind, your thoughts and feelings, or anything else that will help you raise your vibrations? If so, please respond to that guidance and take the steps your ego has been trying to prevent you from taking. You know exactly what I mean by that.The activity of Light designed to assist all of Humanity to raise our vibrations above the oppressive grip of our human egos will take place this summer. This event will involve the unified efforts of the God Selves of every man, woman, and child on Earth and the entire Company of Heaven. August 14 -19, 2010, during the anniversary of the first Harmonic Convergence which took place August 15 -18, 1987, Lightworkers from around the world will gather within the forcefield of Washington, D. C., in the USA. Together we will form a mighty transformer of Light through which the Light of God will pour to open the 5th-Dimensional Portal of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, Victory, and the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. Our Father-Mother God and the Company of Heaven have revealed that the infinite power of these Divine Qualities are the key to raising the energy, vibration, and consciousness of Humanity’s physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies effectively enough to burst the bonds our human egos have used to manipulate and control us for aeons of time. This unprecedented activity of Divine Grace and Mercy will occur through the God Self of every person on the planet in perfect alignment with his or her Divine Plan and the highest good for all concerned. It is impossible for us to truly comprehend the magnitude of what it will mean for each of us to be free from the manipulation of our egos, but our lives will be transformed. Instead of feeling like we are always walking toward our goals through tar with gale winds blowing in our faces, we will be empowered by our God Selves and the Divine Intervention of the Heavenly Realms. The patterns of perfection for our individual lives and our collective lives will manifest much more quickly and together we will tangibly cocreate the New Earth.Through this activity of Light we are ALL being called to a higher service. This is a joint effort between Heaven and Earth. Those of us who have the heart call to participate need to listen to our inner guidance and respond accordingly. Our Light and Love are a critical factor in the success of this facet of the Divine Mission. Do not let your human ego negate the inner knowing that is surfacing in your heart of hearts.

Lunar Eclipse Changes




The Lunar Eclipse yesterday, June 26 opened the door for our success and transition into a brand new environment with career/business opportunities. June 25, 26, 27, 28 are now a major series of back to back changes. The Sun opposition Pluto on Friday the 25, shining the light on Pluto's emphasis of business/government/industry. The Full Moon on June 26, a Lunar Eclipse, at 4' Cancer/4' Capricorn, with Jupiter and Uranus squaring this Lunar Eclipse, Grand Cross heightening the high tide of events. Mercury opposes Pluto today, Sunday the 27, bringing information forward that's been the undercurrent of events, now coming into view. This new visibility shows situations that are now under scrutiny. The Sun connects with Mercury at 6' Cancer tomorrow, Monday the 28, which opens the floodgates of information that provides karma for many people, positions, situations that have been misusing their power and impacting people in a negative way. Their arrogance and ego issues begin to be seen in the spotlight. These events seem to fall like rain, being the very events that flow into a new generation of Uranus in Aries creating a completely different environment for us all!

Eclipse Eve


In the morning, June 26, thus following the opening of the spiritual portal of Solstice, a partial lunar eclipse at 4° Capricorn conjuncts Pluto, adding a very personal & emotional connection to the powerful energies of the outer & social planets and activates a powerful astrological Cardinal Grand Cross. A Grand Cross is when at least four planets occupy astrological positions that square each other – like the four points of a cross. Tomorrow, the placements are in Cardinal signs denoting new beginnings, instead of 4 planets, over the course of the next month, there are 7 planetary bodies involved. On this occasion the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Aries and the square between Uranus and Pluto in Capricorn. This rare and profound relationship ushers the potential of socio-economic transformation in a death-rebirth, dissolution-resolution process. If your own personal Sun and Moon- as mine are!- are aligned with it, you will be especially challenged by this process. Jupiter/Uranus conjunction takes place every 14 years and marks the end of a great cycle. For me, as for many people, it has created the feeling that I am in a cocoon, the caterpillar that I have been for this last cycle has dissolved and the potential butterfly that I may become, has yet to be. By the time the conjunction becomes exact again for its final energetic impulse on September 18, the Grand Cross will have moved on and so the new beginnings will be starting to manifest. One of the aspects of this alignment that may be very significant is the emergence into the mainstream of worldview that has been percolating through the holistic movement for so long. A paradigm of the oneness of the Cosmos as co-creation of cosmic mind- and a new vision based on raising of our consciousness rather than specific teachings, understanding rather than ‘belief’.

Solstice




Solstice is here! In with a bang this morning, it really heated up the first day of summer! Drumming and ceremony, awe inspiring at Sonehenge, just like thousands of other Solstices in the past. Each year is different, however- this year nearly no media coverage, or maybe I just didn't hear it with the drumming and all...

Happy Fathers Day


2010, being the 100th year of celebrating Fathers Day in the USA is special indeed. Most countries do not even have a Fathers Day, yet most other countries do have a Mothers Day, or Womens Day. It is significant that Fathers Day falls the Day before Solstice- Sol being the Sun, which has always been masculine, a Father, while the moon, Luna being feminine, a Mother. Sol, also a god in some cultures, we see even now as sun worshippers...

This is also my Dad's Birthday- we always had a great time celebrating his Birthday as well as Fathers Day- He was an exceptional Dad! He had a saying: Some children are grown like weeds, with no care- they just grow up. His children were raised, and tenderly cared for, like a garden.
Thank You, Dad! I Love You!

Nine Hopi Signs


"The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.
"This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.
"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes -- the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies."
"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes -- the coming of the white men's cattle."
"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron."
"This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider's web."
"This is the Sixth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun."
"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it."
"This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.
"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.
"These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands -- with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying.
"Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon -- very soon afterward -- Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.
"But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You -- perhaps will see it. In time, in time..."
The signs are interpreted as follows:
The First Sign is of guns.
The Second Sign is of the pioneers' covered wagons.
The Third Sign is of longhorn cattle.
The Fourth Sign describes the railroad tracks.
The Fifth Sign is a clear image of our electric power and telephone lines.
The Sixth Sign describes concrete highways and their mirage-producing effects.
The Seventh Sign foretells of oil spills in the ocean.
The Eighth Sign may indicate the "Hippie Movement" of the 1960s.
The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979. According to Australian eye-witnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.

Another Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon -- obviously anticipating the Apollo 11 mission that returned with samples of lunar basalt. If this was done, the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and universal laws and forces would be disturbed, resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and social unrest. All these things are happening today, though of course not necessarily because of Moon rocks.
The Hopi also predicted that when the "heart" of the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances will develop in the balance of nature, for the Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image of the entire planet; any violations of nature in the Four Corners region will be reflected and amplified all over the Earth."

My Laurie Grant Blog from 3-4-9 was The Hopi Messages- very profound, as is this one, The Hopi Signs.
Are we ready to pay attention? Is the Gulf oil spill the Seventh Sign? Does anyone really want to upset Arizona, where the Hopi Elders are, and has been their land since time began? Are YOU ready for the Fifth World?

The Nine Dimensions


This is a very clear & concise outline of the 9 dimensions on Earth:

The Nine Dimensions: On Monday's Coast to Coast show, astrologer, author, and expert in the Mayan Calendar, Barbara Hand Clow talked about the nine dimensions of human consciousness, which she first learned about during her channeling of Pleiadian beings. According to her sources, each of the nine dimensions carries special information:
1st Dimension: an iron core crystal in the center of our planet that holds the Akashic Records.
2nd Dimension: the realm of consciousness between the iron core crystal and the crust of the planet, including magma, telluric realm, and volcanic forces.
3rd Dimension: linear space & time-- the dimension we are most familiar with.
4th Dimension: the canopy that forms over our body-- the collective mind, an aggregate of our thoughts & feelings, and also the realm in which the global elite's control patterns are operating.
5th Dimension: unconditional love, the opening of the heart-- must overcome duality of the 4th Dimension to access.
6th Dimension: sacred geometry and the world of forms; crop circles are an example.
7th Dimension: sound-- creates the geometry in the 6th Dimension.
8th Dimension: divine mind and consciousness.
9th Dimension: time codes of the Mayan calendar-- a calendar for evolution for everything that exists.
Around 12,000 years ago, we humans lost access to these higher dimensions of consciousness due to the cataclysmic events that struck the Earth, she explained. When people are able to activate the nine dimensions of consciousness, they have "achieved an alchemical transmutation," she added. The Pleiadians said that by October 2011, our reality would be "permeated by the full bore blast of the nine dimensions of consciousness," and people would move into higher levels of awareness, Hand Clow recounted. However, in the short term, she foresees June and July 2010 as being difficult chaotic periods, astrologically tied in with eclipses and the summer solstice.
