Universal Intelligence? Universal Soul? Sati Knowing?

lotus may 2018Let me start with the words “Universal Intelligence” — two words.  Concepts.  Assigned meanings.  What meaning? Well, synchronistic guidance received in meaningful timing that is too unmistakable, too precise to be considered accidental.

Is this the Universal Soul communicating with this soul? or the “Knowing” that I’ve heard called Sati?  But that word, Sati, may not be the right word for this.  Unsure.  Anway…

Applying more than these few words, in order to define this type of magic, isn’t all that useful anyway.  Besides, this type of going-on is likely not to be that unusual really.  It’s probably a stimulated manifestation based on intention.  Yet, in this lifetime, it seems always to be connected to spiritual goals which to me lends it a higher conceptual name.  The precise name is not useful really for a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, as Shakespeare said.

This divine magic has been experienced like being directly guided and supported as if by a master teacher or some overseer of my life who knows exactly what is being learned, and how it applies to my evolution.

Its as if there is some wise being making sure that what is needed is provided in exactly the right timing to apply to the next lesson.  It’s not easy to put into words.  Its happened time and again–too many times to recount.

Yet, here’s the most recent example that stimulated me to write about it in this blog post today . . .

Within days of reading about a particular (somewhat complicated) spiritual teaching and meditation method, the book material was being contemplated.  Next thing, with barely any conscious awareness of how I got to the website, there before me I found myself looking at pages of audio teachings from numerous teachers on a host of varied subjects.

Randomly, I clicked on one of the hundreds of links and found myself listening to the identical teaching that I’d just read about in the book, explaining it further! It was of great benefit to me.  Prior to the random click, there was no hint externally that the audio would further explain the written material.  Yet, it was no accident!

This type of event has occurred often enough for me to release any doubt whatsoever of some divine force guiding the internal and external experiences of my life.

Resolving Mental Corruptions

mentalMistakes.  Learning opportunities — that’s  what they are.  Negative karmic behaviors sometimes cause us to dump the toxic spills of our own minds onto others–loved ones, friends, etc., and we create oil slicks.  If we allow our emotional fires to run rampant, it causes destruction.  Compassion and forgiveness put out the fire and is what begins the cleanup and restoration in the emotional aftermath.

Yet, sometimes our own mental corruption is deeply ingrained.  Healing deep imprints of karmic, habitual behaviors can be a challenge.  It can feel like uprooting one’s very identity!

It is wise to recall that this identity is ego itself.

Lately, I’ve become more aware than ever before of where my energy is focused and what exactly is a good use of that emphasis and why.  I have a few thoughts to share about that.

Energy, of course,  is better spent on tending to our own gardens and enjoying our own flowers.

Smelling the roses is more worthy an endeavor, even if garbage dumps are around *and there always will be to some extent*.  Enjoy the accomplishments of what you have grown and how you are progressing down life’s path–thus speaks my inner guidance.

Meanwhile, compassion and forgiveness make the best traveling companions.

SIX OF WANDS and INITIATION – When we are tested, fall short or feel bad about ourselves

Surviving Initiation

SIX OF WANDS WISDOM FOR WHEN WE ARE HARD ON OURSELVES 

We all have things in life that we wish we could improve upon or wish we could do better.  We may look back at a recent experience and feel bad about ourselves when we see how we wish we could be versus how we are!

We all know what perfection should look like and then we compare ourselves and see how we have fallen short.  How do we handle that?  That’s was my thought as I drew a Tarot Card for guidance. 

I don’t know why but I always think of the word INITIATION when I see this card.  And that makes me think of the book with that title about the Initiations in Egypt–probably soul memories triggered.

[The book:  INITIATION by Elizabeth Haich].

We all know that initiations are difficult and sometimes impossible to perfect… its a right of passage… like walking on hot coals or a bed of nails… we’re just supposed to make it through alive and intact, not perfect the state so that we remain in that hot coal or bed of nails state.  The focus is on indoctrination and instruction into a state of mind–an awareness creator so-to-speak.

Anyway, sometimes enduring an initiation is in itself the success!  Perhaps we aren’t meant to conquer the fire fires but to just get through them without being burned too badly!  Maye it’s not so much about controlling the raging river but rather staying on top of it.  Maybe it’s not as much about controlling the pool full of crocodiles but just getting through the crock pond alive to reach the other side!  Initiations are like that.

Should we feel back about the anxiety and panic that we may feel about being tossed in a crocodile pond?

I think we should feel great about getting ourselves through it any way we can!

The heck with trying to master the crocs–that’s not what it’s about.

Its about keeping one’s head together well enough to survive–that’s the way initiation goes!

The 6 of Wands always brings the message that after the initiation self-confidence will return and other problems or anxieties will be easier than those major initiations, once passed!   One feels vindicated but has to give credit to help received along the way–the Divine Assistance.

The wisdom of the 6 of Wands reminds us that life’s initiations are difficult and that we shouldn’t be hard on ourselves— we just need to get ourselves out of the pool of crocodiles and to the other side any way we can–whatever works.

Success is simply getting through the initiation–passing the test, enduring he difficulty and living to tell about it!

The benefits come later.

I don’t know about you but drawing this card and applying it to the “pond full of crocs” type of situation in my life helps me to feel better about it!

Thank you to for Divine Assistance and to the Angels of Tarot for giving me much needed insight and I hope something here is helpful for you too!

Channeling the Moon, Stars and Night Sky to Inspire One’s Unique Creation – My Psychic Story

 

Fairy on a Moonlit Beach
Fairy on a Moonlit Beach

 

Who I AM is really quite like that image of the lone fairy on the beach there. 

I am here alone, was born alone and will die alone—as we all do.  My work is the same way—I work alone and my work is my own creation and I say that with a grain of salt because my work is in harmony, I feel, with higher forces under whose guidance the psychic course was created.  And from scratch mind you.  If you have an independent entrepreneurial nature too, then you will relate to my story. 

  I had minimal training and then through the force of life found myself with $6 in my pocket and no money in the bank, no credit and only my car and one small suitcase.  And it was from that level that I began to do readings to support myself and to keep the wolves away from my door, so-to-speak. 

It is channeled—the whole thing and it is a creation of a bare, pure spirit turned to the Moon and Stars and Night Sky for help and guidance and inspiration.  That last word is the best—inspiration.  I breathed in the Moon, Stars and Sky and the psychic course came out because it was created from my own journey and my own life experiences woven through and through. 

It has been online available to nourish others who seek it out while the income continues to support me and keep the wolves away from my door—a door that I am grateful to live behind and for which I am ever grateful.  Shelter, clothes, food and the basic essentials and the ability to keep sharing as inspiration comes to me—this is the cornerstone of my life.

I love my work and the ability to communicate with students who come to the course and need questions answered.  The course stands alone and stands for itself, just as I do and there’s nothing to change or add but I do nurture its growth somewhat by writing a weekly newsletter to support the students and also for the general public. 

The Moon and Stars and Sky still inspire me in this way; yet I’m called in an additional direction for the past… well, since my last astrologically progressed New Moon (January 2008).  And that direction is astrology itself.  Just last night, in fact, while revisiting Brady’s book on Transits and Progressions, I saw notes I made in the margins dating back to 2007.  Really?  I was a bit surprised at how long I’d been studying astrology!  I began to get more or less serious about it when I bought Brady’s book and a number of others at that time; yet my study of astrology goes back even further.  It is said that whatever is started at the new moon represents that next 28 to 29 year phase and that there’s no going back to anything after the New Moon projects are begun—and they seriously began then.

The psychic class is fully established and growing in popularity and perhaps because of this people who want to jump in and on the bandwagon seem to be crawling out of the woodwork lately.  I’ve had solicitations from people who want to advertise on my website, others who want to personally mentor my students and take over the group to practice their leadership skills (Really? Go get your own group!) and by the way can you imagine that? And there are others who want me to take all my students and hire them to work for me and make money off their labors and oh, by the way those others will take commission and I just turn over my creations to them.  Are you kidding me?  And then we have those who want to be my personal secretary and write my newsletters for me and take my calls and schedule my appointments—you can’t be serious!  

(More on this later but Neptune transiting through  my 7th House –and that will make sense for those familiar with astrology.)

Strangely, it feels like I’ve been in this place before where the vulchers come to feed off my creations.  It all shows up in my various charts—return charts as well as transits and progressions—the same theme is there right now.  

On a soul level, the polarity point to my Pluto is the 6th house and this area of life relates to using discernment or not being blindly trusting that everyone’s intentions are wholly altruistic – a mistake in naiveté that I’ve made in past life associations.  

Anyway, getting current…. combining intuitive faculties with soul astrology is where I am being called to put my energy in addition to renewing relationship connections with my family since my relocation. 

The psychic class is my most joyful creation aside from my children—both of which originate from beyond my meager personal existence of which I am only a part but all do bear my name.  And speaking of bear (or bears), I’ve had the bear totem showing up everywhere in my life lately but then again the Sun is making a conjunction to my natal Pluto right now and that combo sort of reminds me of bear energy. 

Mama bears protect their babies the same way that I feel protective about my reputation, career and creations in the world—it’s an ‘energy thing’ if you get my meaning.  So I’ve got to keep an eye out for those vulchers who seem to be everywhere lately. 

Rob Hand (famous astrologer) talks about Nefarious Neptune in the 7th house of what the old astrologers call “the house of open enemies” as people who try to deceive you and/or misrepresent themselves.    Yeah, well, let’s not be paranoid but by the same token let’s not be blind to that possibility either.  When Neptune crosses through the 7th, one must use care not to be duped by others if you know what I mean; that’s all I’m sayen’.  And according to Rob, avoid partnering up with anyone.

I’ve never been one to partner up with others anyway except for my 20 year marriage; but even in that, with Aquarius on the cusp of the 7th (and yes, his Sun was in Aquarius), I was still pretty much a loner even in the marriage.  I’m independent and respect others who are independent as well–he was. 

I love teaching and helping others but I don’t wish to partner up with anyone in my work or in my personal life and that’s how I’m wired and I don’t resist my own nature. 

Yeah, so anyway this is a blog and blah, blah, blah here I go again using this as a place to vent a bit.  But the deeper motivation with this blog is to explain myself – even if it seems that I am trying to explain me to my self (and maybe that’s so) it is this that motivated this post today.

Well, it was the picture of the fairy that motivated me along with the recent patterns with my work that I’m noting and responding to the best I can.

And with that said, I’ll bet many of you entrepreneur-types who come across these words and  who have created your own work, your own niche, will get where I’m coming from. 

And just so that the rest of you know, we are not selfish and we are not snobs and we care deeply and what we do is our soul, our blood, and yes sweat and tears and before I start singing songs again…

“… spinning wheel got to go round… catch a painted pony, let the spinning wheel spin… you got no money, you got no home, spinning wheel, spinning all alone… ♫     —See? There I go again! 

Let me end this with a post that I made on the Facebook today that, I feel, says it all….. 

I am a dance teacher (in a way) and I love the dance and I love to dance and I love to see other people dance and the dance is what I’m all about but…

“Do the dance that you’ve been shown until the dance becomes your very own.  Meanwhile, get off my toes!”  –Joy Star, said with humor and love!

Do You Feel Like I Feel? Need Relief, Deliverance and a Solution from Winter, Holiday and Financial Blues or Frustration? I-CHING Oracle Helps – Kua 40

Welcome to the conversation with me, myself and I about finding a solution. Yes, alright.  I agree (with myself); I’m tired and never happy when it is raining and cold at the same time with snow predictions flying left and right.  Money issues are tugging me left and right and up and down from below and above—typical for this time of year when my home rental lease is up (and the rent went up with it) and end of the year income reports and the beloved Black Friday hoopla bites at one’s heels.  And if I could leave the planet and come back in January, I’d be fine with it—what to “get” this one and that one when I give all year-long when I see the need and I can (actually I’m generous with my family and usually don’t need much).  I totally resent some merchants and christian holiday makers telling me about the deadline.  Funny, I don’t feel this pressure for other holidays but x-mas memories are filled with “how are we going to pull it off again this year?”  You know, three little children and society really won’t let you get away from it—they insist!  It’s x-mas, go along with it.  Get’s my rebel rouser up, you know?  Not that I don’t enjoy the decorations and lights and bright red bows and poinsettia’s which off-set the bare brown leaves and lack of color generally at this time of year—and the darkness.

Yeah, that too and striving for balance when the days seem so short!  Honestly, a segment of time for exercise, meditation, food, housekeeping, work, emailing and there’s not enough hours in the day.  Yeah, I Facebook and tweet but it’s my way of letting my family and close friends be in touch and vice versa; it seems like nobody has time to email anymore and I am constantly behind there too.  Maybe with the cable being shut off in a day or so (my choice), the perspective will change; we’ll see.

I mean last night I was watching the Sunday evening Amazing Race show on TV (cable gets shut off tomorrow) while working on emails, bills, bank statement and accounting for holiday gifts and lots of loose ends being tied up when I hear coming from the direction of the TV, “Welcome to the Morning Show.”  Really?

I crashed for a few hours and then back at it – clients, students and other email inquiries tugging and pulling and then paypal demanding tax ID information.  Sometimes the head just swirls, you know?  I haven’t blogged in a while again and I’ve got to compose this week’s newsletter which I’ve already done in my mind—it’s a matter of typing it out.

Maybe you are feeling a bit overwhelmed and slightly frustrated even though you are (like me) gallantly, truly and sincerely, from-your-deep-heart completely grateful for your life and your family and your blessings, no matter what denomination/amount or trend they come in.  Yet, also like me, right about now, you could use a little wisdom and guidance.  Will you be joining me for a cup of hot tea and a toss of the I-CHING?  Let’s do; here we go then.

What does the divinatory system available to us have to say to us at this time of mini-frustration and overwhelm?  Let’s have a look; if you need this as much as I apparently do right now, keep reading…

Many times, if I am feeling stuck, frustrated or overwhelmed, I recognize it (as I do now) and pull a divination card (tarot), do an I-CHING toss or select an Angel card after a quick shuffle.  Any of these give me something to meditate upon—like a mandala or focusing on a prayer of some sort.  Lots of times, I will just quiet down, look at the image on the card if it’s a picture and allow the image to trigger something within my heart that wants to speak by way of wisdom or guidance.  With the I-CHING, if there’s time, I will read the meaning of the Kua if I do not know it from memory and my intuition will spark on a word, phrase or sentence.  I may take that and then sit with it in meditation; I usually like to do this outdoors and am happy to be able to have a room that is designated a meditation room where I can sit when it is cold, snowing, raining or dark outside as it is now.  I try to make this area as comforting and warm as I can for myself.   There were times in my past where I had only one room and set aside one corner with a small altar for this purpose—an angel statue or a Buddha and other special, sacred (to me) or spiritual (to me) items to help me focus in a different way.

One of the worst things that we all do, and it is something that I’m doing now as I’m typing (and I need to release this NOW) is to feel guilty for how we were feeling previously in the preceding hours or days before we can do this calm-down and re-centering meditation or contemplation.  This becomes a vicious cycle of course—we feel bad and then begin to shift and do a guilt trip on ourselves by feeling guilty for feeling bad (meaning feeling overwhelmed or temporarily frustrated or agitated).  We might say something like, “Just look at you with all your blessings—how dare you complain when so many people in the world are suffering! YOU should not be feeling this way.”   This type of self-berating does absolutely no good and is a trap.  The truth is that you have given yourself the opportunity to slow down and regroup and are seeking guidance and wisdom from within—NOT the inner critic!

So the I-CHING Kua we have here is (interestingly enough) Kua 40 called DELIVERANCE or ABATEMENT OF DANGER.  (By the way, I looked into the meaning of the word “deliverance” in the dictionary:  “action of setting free” in physical or spiritual senses. )The wisdom here is to recognize that the worst is over for the moment mostly because of the wisdom that we had here to take action—to actually STOP and recognize that we needed to consult the oracle.  Because we’re doing that right now, the danger of “going off the deep end” has subsided or been averted.

The I-CHING oracle is saying that it is good to reflect on the entire situation but don’t reflect too long—too much contemplation cripples the ability to make a decision.  Like I said, feeling guilty has no place in this process, it’s crippling. Further, the oracle says to return to your normal activities as soon as the danger is over.  I don’t know about you, but stopping to type and consult the I-CHING has helped me get past the hump enough to be able to return to normal activities.  In this case, the normal activity is sleep aligning with my intention to get to bed at a reasonable hour and not be up all night again.  Since it’s nearing 1 AM, my inner guide is saying, “Good enough–now post it.  Maybe it will help someone else out there and then OFF TO BED!”

Knowing me, I will probably consider the guidance further and then maybe have a follow-up dream about it (no matter if I remember the dream or not, I’ll probably have one) and wake up in the morning feeling much better.  Maybe by then the rain will have stopped and the snow they’re predicting will be starting.  I’m not going to lament the fact that I hardly got to enjoy the fall before winter showed up!  Like a little child, I get whiney when I’m tired.  Tomorrow’s another day as my grandmother used to say a lot and I do (after all) like snow.   Really I do.

See you next time…   the sound of the rain and wind outside will help me sleep (I hope).  I love the synchronicity of the rain and thunderstorm image on the Kua 40 card above. Looking at the image what comes to mind is an American Indian (maybe the ‘me’ of a past life in my fantasy) beseeching the Thunder Beings to “beam me up” and you know the rest of the line from Star Trek.

Read my addendum below and you should see my point with that last comment… and by the way…

 …currently the transiting NORTH NODE of the Moon (evolving evolutionary intention for each soul) is conjuncting the SUN (purpose) and MERCURY (talk/communicate/discuss/information) ALL in the sign of SAG (belief systems/truth versus lies and freedom/deliverance as well as Nature and natural law) — toss in that MERCURY  is  RETROGRADE in that sign of SAG and Omg I guess we can see the possibility of what I describe below happening elsewhere; maybe different details but generally the same possible vibe as below.  After all, that NN, Mercury retro and Sun in Sag stellium is happening right now for everyone.

ADDENDUM:  Posting this paragraph the following day–I noticed that the Moon was in Capricorn yesterday and the day before.  Cap is about “getting real” and “work” and applying discipline.  The emotional energy was in alignment with wrapping things up and dealing with the practical earth-living stuff.  I had a giggle this morning when I pushed aside another obvious connection with that Capricorn energy yesterday.  The phone man was here and let me tell you, trying to get phone problems dealt with up here is like pulling teeth sometimes.  Toss in that we have a new company that simply  cannot seem to get its website straightened out so that I can pay my bill online—well, lots of patience is required.  Now, Saturn rules Capricorn and that energy really relates to the religious Patriarchy, “Father” god, and “society-consensus” energy (i.e.Muggles).  Long story short, that Capricorn Moon must have stirred the muggle’s emotional heart on the level of the father-god dogma because in our discussion about the phone, the native american burial mound, and my questions to him about snakes (after all, he probably knows–he’s a local-yocal in these here mountains) eventually lead him to bring up the B word (THE BIBLE).  And now here we are in my very own kitchen having this conversation!  Another meaning of the word DELIVERANCE as it relates to yesterdays oracle, Kua 40 is SALVATION.  Synchronicity galore there, right?  And this guy who is telling me that this week is FAWN HUNTING around here which topic we get to because he tells me if I go hiking up on the mountain to wear a bright orange vest or I could get SHOT, adding that he doesn’t let his kids go out and play during FAWN HUNTING SEASON which is right NOW.  (The danger is that his own children could be shot.) Omg!  Well, you know how my head, heart, and solar plexus chakras were spinning if you are a follower of this blog!  Anyway, why would the hunting license people ever say it is okay to shoot a baby deer?  I mean, WHY?  Okay, I could go on writing for days, but client’s want readings and there are a gazillion things to do so… the bottom line, okay?  The phone guy in my kitchen ended up saying that no rattle snakes are around here but added that he’s killed several copper heads when he’s been out in the woods; so I say, “were they coming after you, attacking you?” and he says no and I just couldn’t ask any more questions.  The other bottom line was he told me that he feels very bad for me since I will be going to HELL because I don’t fully accept the BIBLE as the full, complete and end-of-story and do-not-question-it WORD OF GOD, period.  You know how these people are–its like talking to a brick wall.  I wanted to laugh when he told me that the god buddha (really?) is buried but jezuz doesn’t have a grave therefore he’s really god and that his baptist-bible father-god “really is an INTOLERANT god” said like it’s a good thing,  but really I bit my lip and tried not to roar laughing–why be blatantly rude, you know?  The guy was pretty pissed off when he left because I simply would not buy into the fear of hell he was trying to get me to buy.  Yeah, Moon was in Capricorn yesterday–it all figures! I still don’t know why they kill baby deer anymore than I can understand why a very nice tree along the public walkway, standing straight and tall and shading the sidewalk along a creek is being chopped at with an axe.  Maybe its a boy scout project?  Why that tree?  Every time I go by, I can see the axe chopping marks are going deeper into the tree’s trunk with a huge V on both sides now and a few more swings and she’s firewood.  Truly, I scratched my head thinking of what possible harm the tree could be doing there along side the creek and walkway–it has no obvious signs of death or decay nor is it leaning or posing a threat to anything.   A boy scout project is all I can think — overall, a sad thing to teach a boy scout to do IMHO, but maybe its a survival-skill badge or some such thing.  Really I wanted to put a big sign on the tree with the three letters and a question mark, “WHY?”  I’d put that same sign on every FAWN on the planet too if I could and my imagination goes even further but I’d spare you that since it goes into areas of perversion.  So there it is– an example of the Capricorn/Saturn archetype and a little bit of what the MOON in CAPRICORN might trigger within us emotionally charged by a stellium in Sag with the transiting NN, MERC and SUN; and now I have to go burn some sage in my kitchen!  Buddha a god, oh please! 

(PS — I slept great, don’t remember any dreams, feel much better, it hasn’t snowed yet but I had an invigorating morning task of gathering up the outdoor carpet, lawn chairs and flower pots that blew upside down from the big winds and rains last night.  Have a glorious fire going in the fireplace… it’s 30 degrees but cozy in my bear den here. By the way, the lady who brings me firewood does not chop down trees, these are “downed -already-tree-firewood-logs.”.. well, you know what I mean.  🙂 )
