Updated: Jun 22
We are being asked to birth a new paradigm and this transition is not for the faint of heart!
How do we move from a world filled with obstacles and illusions into one of fulfillment and love?
We cannot find our center believing in the words and pictures of the media that rarely if ever, bring humanity and kindness into the mix. If you focus on yourself rather than what is outside of you and build a world view based upon the small things you can control, it is possible to come back to gratitude for what you do have, see your world, your life in a positive light, so the global and planetary influences don’t throw you off.
Everything is changing and everything is temporary. Sometimes it feels like we are being asked to squeeze through the eye of a needle to birth what is coming. Can you pause and remember when you're in the middle of change to consider the temporal nature of reality? Everything will continue to change. It will shift from moments of pain to pleasure, discontent to contentment, joy to sorrow. The temporal nature of reality is truly an important life lesson. Catching yourself when you buy into seeing the world as unchanging is mastery. Truly, none of this is real, it is all maya and here for your personal growth.
Spiritual masters have said this over and over again in so many ways -- everything that happens is up for your personal interpretation...it is happening either for the goodness that might seem impossible in the moment to achieve, to reset your trajectory, or for your personal growth...maybe even a combination of these.
What to do when you are "in" it - how to stop before sadness and/or fear take hold:
Close your eyes
Within your mind's eye, take a step back and observe the momentary uncertainty and discomfort in your body and chatter that fills the mind
Breathe in and out slowly a few times to relax the tension you're experiencing - breathe in for a count of 4, hold for a count of 2, exhale for a count of 4
Once you find yourself relaxing within this rhythm of the breath, bring into your heart the sensation of trusting the goodness in your life
Continue to breathe in and out, letting go of the tension through the breath
Wrap yourself in this nurturing energy like you are wrapping yourself in a cocoon
You will find something shifts inside you with this simple adjustment using the breath...the mind relaxes and you will feel your beautiful soul once again
Use this as an awareness technique to assess your reality, observing the mind as an indicator of when you need to gather your scattered energies together. Coming back over and over to the present moment where life truly exists helps heal your nervous system. Practicing this technique will help you to see that life is a dance, a series of transient events, a merging of moments that flow from one to the other for your growth, your becoming, and nothing more.
Everything that seems real is there for your senses. You get to choose if an experience is for your pleasure or pain, sadness or joy. The key is to come back to your true nature time and time again. Come back to the peace, joy, and stillness that resides within you through the breath, meditation, and other Vedic practices that expand and relax the mind.
The illuminated path is a chosen one. It is meant for you to take your tender, open heart and be of service to others just by being your authentic, vulnerable, and beautiful self. Our world is calling for visionaries, our world is calling for kindness and compassion. Be open and willing to do what is there for you to do for the good of yourself and others.
Start your day with a prayer:
Divine Mother, Father, God, show me how to open my heart to hear and feel your words so that I may be of service in this world. Show me what is mine to do. Allow me to serve you through everything I do.
There are planetary energies in play...
Thru the lens of Vedic (Sidereal) Astrology, here's what's coming up in the next week
🕉 Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon, or the Lotus Moon, Thursday, June 24 at 11:40am PT. It will appear full the day before and the day after. This full moon will be in the sign of Sagittarius which brings opportunities to manifest your desires.
🕉 Father’s Day in the US is on Sunday, June 20, and it’s also Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere at 8:31pm PT.
🕉 What is the energy of the 20th as we celebrate the father and move into the summer months here in the Northern Hemisphere? The moon will be in Libra and the influence will be on your creative, artistic, and spiritual nature guided by intuitive energies as well as healing for your relationships. There will still be some indecision regarding how you ground this energy, but the vibe is there and it is more of a precursor of things to come. This moon energy will also be in play in the Southern Hemisphere.
🕉 Mercury goes direct on June 22 and Venus will be in Cancer on June 22 which focuses on the healing of family and the family of humanity. It's time to consider creative home improvements - reorganizing/redecorating - lightening up your load. We will still feel the influence of the retrograde energy for another week or so after Mercury goes direct, but it will progressively diminish its influence.
🕉 The 24th is the Full Moon in Sagittarius and the focus will be on spiritual and intuitive knowledge. It's time to see if your beliefs are in integrity with who you are becoming. Be open to new opportunities and an easier flow for manifestation.
