Fear, Change, Committment and a New Life in 60-Days

CHANGE

Hello beautiful people!  O, take it first hand from me (as if you didn’t know from your OWN experiences anyway) but fear wreaks havoc (potentially) if we don’t nip it in the bud.  I’ve just made a commitment that has taken courage—and because of this,  I may not be blogging… wait.   How about this?  I could bring you along with me on this adventure via this blog (time permitting).

On this journey I am  going to ‘test my mettle’,  as well as my determination, courage and tenacity!  What do you say?  If I had the time I’d create a separate blog for that but this one will have to do.

This is just the beginning of what is going to be a very interesting journey over the next 60 days.  Hang on to your hat—that’s what I’m telling myself.  I’m about to head into territory.  From the Higher Self:  This experience  is likely to hit or trigger this soul’s past issues/wounds–yet also provides the opportunity to heal those!   This should get interesting and we will have to help this soul and this personality remain awake and fully conscious through this process!

This is Day #1 more-or-less officially (but there’s no signing on the dotted line yet exactly) but, like I said more-or-less since I just got the green flag to go ahead with my commitment for change and to experience a new life in 60 days. 

There is a particular area of my life that must remain strong if I am to succeed.  Yet I just had a moment of paranoia when I thought that area has become weak.  It involved looking at something and thinking, “How in the world could this be?” and then the mind started envisioning everything in my life going south.  Well, you know what I mean–the old fear monster reared its head and said, “See this weakened area and how it shows that you are going to fail? Just look at how vulnerable you are; you’ll never pull this off.”

Ha!  Wrong; it was a mistake, a simple error and did not indicate any vulnerability or weakness in any area whatsoever.  Mind you, this was just a half-hour in the making today, on day one of this venture, this commitment, this change in my life.  And during that half hour (after the initial shock hit like a strong wave and dissipated as quickly as it hit), what I did was consciously let go; I surrendered.

Yeah, it was still hanging out in the back of my mind but I shrunk that fear monster down to 5% of its original huge size by not giving it my energy or any credibility.

Me of all people knows how this kind of thing can snowball—first one fear and if it doesn’t get nipped in the bud right then, it starts calling in it’s family members and friends, doubt, uncertainly, anxiety and all of the others from on Main Street in Stress-ville and before you know it, we’re all sunk.

I just received information that my fear was actually erroneous – ahhh, like almost all fear is.  I thought so but got a validating email to that effect and so now we’re back on track again.  F.alse E.vidence A.ppearing R.eal — yeah, I know; you’ve heard that a thousand times if you’ve heard it once (but not everybody has).

I look forward to this challenge and to being very busy with clients, students and also in this area of commitment in my life which is only temporary but which in the end will bring positive change.  I’ll blog post again as we go along on this journey sharing my challenges and successes, planning to have more success than the other.

This has to potential to be emotional as change can be, but I am ready.  As I heard it said while watching a re-run episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and I paraphrase, “When what needs to be changed becomes more difficult to deal with than the fear of the change—it happens.”   And it’s about to.  So much for Day 1.  We’ve only 59 more days to go and lots to do!  My tarot card have been right so far on this–and my higher self has guided me right here at the brink of this change.  It seems so sudden but then change always does, doesn’ t it?

Oh, and I am pretty sure we have the green light go ahead… it should be official by tomorrow, more or less.  I’ll post again when that last small stop is pulled out; but it’s looking like a done deal.  I just have to take my own courageous steps and make my determined efforts now.  (It was that darned May Super Full  Moon in Scorpio that started this off!  I’ll be grateful at the END of the 60-Days, but one step, one day at a time.  LOL)

PS — Terence (the toad) and Sam (the salamander) didn’t make it. ( See last post. )

By the way, this week’s newsletter relates to this unfolding 60-Day thing  in many ways–the part about watching myself do things.

I’m going to make this a fun adventure (to the best of my ability) and laugh my way through it — as much as possible.  That’s my intent — we’ll see how I do.

What do you do when people change? Where do you find true unchanging happiness? Relationships, Drugs, and Tarot Ten of Cups

There’s no personal question today… nothing troubling the mind or heart but let me pretend that the person reading this today is troubled by a relationship problem.  It’s possible with the FULL MOON in the astrological relationship sign of LIBRA now.

Let’s say it has to do with people changing and we could pretend that the reader feels that the person they are closest to in life is turning, changing, becoming different and isn’t sure what’s going on and is troubled by the change.  Let’s ask the divination tool, the Tarot, the oracle used today in this post what advice should be given to such a person who is troubled by their loved one’s apparent change.

I’m going to shuffle the cards now.  Here we go…

Oh, good card I think!  We have the 10 of cups and there look at the image at the top of this post—good image isn’t it?  I mean, considering our question.  She’s looking down and he seems to be trying to look into her eyes to figure her out.  The rainbow above and cups with it represent emotional happiness perhaps and how she once was but currently there’s a different look than appears on the woman sitting on the rainbow.

Makes me think (before we go any further) about those who seem to need to figure other people out in the first place!  I mean, why can’t we tell him to get out of her face and leave her alone and find something better to do?  Well, anyway…

Let’s look at the 10 of cups and remember that this card – in archetypical terms – represents emotional happiness.  O, how fleeting that can be sometimes and how traumatic when we believe that we have lost the source of it which is (of course) impossible to do, but still…. There we are anyway.

It also makes me think about co-dependency.  You know what that is right?  I can’t be happy until I know you are okay and happy first.  That’s an example of co-dependency.  I know that one pretty well because this is how I was experiencing my middle child back when she was in high school and if I’m honest I still get this way sometimes and she’s now 34 years old!  But this isn’t about her and I… this is a general question about what to do when people change.

The Oracle (via the card) seems to want to specifically address the change having to do with changes in emotional happiness—or maybe that’s my own interpretation.  Anyway…

It’s definitely about emotions according to the Oracle.  Cups is the symbol representing emotions in the Tarot system.  My Herbal Tarot deck wants to associate this card with the “herb” cannabis sativa otherwise known as marijuana.  Passing illusions!  That’s what that rainbow on this card represents.  I’ve never liked drugs, alcohol or even excessive herbs because I’m already pretty Neptune-ish and have a difficult enough time keeping my feet on the ground!  I’m learning to master my mind and emotions and that’s a bit harder to do when under the influence.  LOL

The 10 of Cups card is about learning equilibrium and that comes through lessons many times that are given via others which brings us back to the main issue we’re talking about.  Can you remain balanced when others around you are not?  OR are you co-dependent?

When we get caught up in the pie-in-the-sky syndrome and believe that everyone should maintain a basic sense of equilibrium for our benefit so that ‘we’ can be okay, that’s quite a delusion to maintain.  People will change and we will as well.  That last statement really makes me think about how we find one moment of exquisite pleasure and peace in which no problems seem to be on any horizon and we feel happy and then we spend our life chasing that moment.  This, I believe, is what causes people to turn to marijuana, alcohol and/or other drugs—they are seeking to reproduce that carefree state albeit in an artificial way.  Joyful intoxication can be used as an exercise to learn to discriminate the true inner reality from outer delusions!  I can see that as the only benefit.

If you become troubled by a loved one who seems to have changed, examine your own tendency to be co-dependent and remember that all things will eventually pass—both peaks and valleys of happiness and sadness.  Find the unchanging core within you that is stable and maintains equilibrium despite changes in the life around you or in the people around you.  All happiness comes from within the mind and heart of full self-realization and no amount of drugs or alcohol or herbs will help you find it on a permanent basis.  Only YOU can create the non-changing stable, happy contentment that you are seeking in the outer world.  To help others who do not realize this yet, you can only show the best example and detach.

Divine Timing and Being in the Right Place at the Right Time

Maybe it’s always been this way and when I was younger; I was just too busy to notice. It really got my attention the first time about 10 (or has it been 15?) years ago in Sedona, Arizona.  My sister and I had driven in from Phoenix and just as we entered town we saw a number of school busses lined up and parking and traffic being directed.  I rolled down the window and asked someone what was going on.  Pow Wow!  I had only one question, where do we park to board the bus to get there.  That Pow Wow was huge!

My christian sister wasn’t impressed, she mostly shopped in the little tent booths.  I was practically moved to tears hearing the drums and watching the dancing… in my head I kept saying over and over “My People” and tears welled up in my eyes.

I love when synchronistic things like being in the right place at the right time happens.

There is something within us that directs the timing of events and circumstances—I’m as sure as you are.  How many times have we been at the right place at exactly the right moment?  No accident.

It was Halloween and of course I knew when Halloween was, but without children at home anymore or even trick or treaters to come by (houses are too far apart on a single lane narrow mountain road), and with the distractions of my mind going in a thousand places at once half the time; I’d forgotten.

Suddenly, I look out and see it is going to be getting dark and I had not gone for my walk yet—“better get going, go NOW”.  So I laced up my shoes and out I go to walk in town and as I’m going along I see people across the way on the sidewalks and a bit of a crowd is forming and I wondered what is going on.  Usually there are not so many people in town.

I knew that the loop I walk will be taking me over that way and lo and behold when it did, I realized they were trick or treaters—that’s right, it’s Halloween! 

I had only walked one mile and I usually do three, so I kept going and before long the whole town had turned out and the sidewalks were full of children in costumes and even the parents were dressed too.  Small town, you know!  The merchants and the bank and the gas station and even the car wash people and the community clinic were handing out candy as the kids and their parents (and me) walked the town loop. It was fun to be out with the townspeople and as night started to fall the pumpkins everywhere were lit and it seemed to me to be perfect.  The crowd had built along with my walk—I arrived just in time.

Another night near Christmas time, the same sort of thing happened.  Now that I think of it, it happens when there’s a street dance too… something within me says, “Go now” and when I do, I see the perfect timing involved and smile and nod while feeling warm and happy inside.  The divine intelligence at work again!

I went for a walk late in the day that day and when I got toward town to start my little jaunt, I see there are about 5 cars lined up at the traffic light.  Huh?  Traffic?  We don’t have traffic around here!  I wonder what’s going on.

As I get closer to my destination, I ask and am told that the Christmas parade is about to start.  Really?  There it was again—perfect divine timing, at the right place at the right time. 

I got to do my walk while alongside the high school marching band (17 members with instruments and about 10 girls with flags), every fire truck in the township (all 5) and every bit of equipment the county owns—police cars and snow plows included.  Around here we have lots of 1950’s restored car shows, so they were all in the parade too.

You should have been there—even the local Roto-Rooter truck was decorated and pulling a wagon full of kids with elf hats throwing candy at the crowd.  Should we use the word crowd?  It was hard to know if there were more people in the parade than watching it, but I enjoyed it!

The point is that I’d have missed it if I hadn’t listened to that voice of intuition that says, “Go now.”

I’m pretty accustomed to following it and it helps me to be at the right place at the right time.

PS—sometimes it helps me not to be in the right place at the right time too.  Recently, I missed a phone call that it was definitely good to miss (it’s a long story and the details don’t matter).  Just believe me that it was good that I missed it, and it worked out in my favor that I did.  The circumstances around my missing the call were enough to prove to me, once again, that there is an intelligence that is metaphysical at work and it isn’t just pure simple dumb luck.  No one could convince me otherwise—not when I witness perfect, exact timing happening over and over and over again!  And you know exactly what I’m talking about–think back.

Daily Divination 9-13-11 Hold It Together Today and Make the Highest Choice Especially in Teamwork… I-CHING KUA 8

Today’s cosmic communiqué is about teamwork; yet (and maybe it’s just me) but the first impression that I had looking at the image for the I CHING KUA 8 “Holding Together”—those fish swimming is schools—had me thinking about holding my own energy together. Hold it together Joy!

The Capital W, Will, which is spiritual in nature and origin, is not to be confused with ‘will power’ which is only mental and psychological.  Divine Will (spiritual) has the power of total regeneration and can easily handle “holding together”.

I’m working on something in my personal life now for which that message really has meaning. “Union” is an archetype keyword and to that I’d add “the strong will of the human” uniting with the greater WILL or Higher Will. And so when uniting the lower will with the Higher Will (union of the ego with the soul is one way we could say it—use whatever terminology works for you) is something that always compliments your own nature. There’s no need to fight against it or resist uniting with the “Higher Will”—if you will.

How do we unite with Higher Will? That is the spiritual path itself and more of a topic that I have time for today; yet it is everything I am about–or at least that’s my current illusion. 🙂 Today’s message is also about making a choice, but using the Higher Mind to do so. Having a central spiritual figure in mind today to help you with life isn’t a bad idea either. Some call on Angels; others a particular form of The Divine for the purpose of helping them hold together and keep their energy unified.

If you do work with a group of other humans today in any way, be one of them—get right in the water with them and participate as the equal—this will hold the energy together so that what needs accomplishing can be with good cooperation. Release the ego’s strong engagement with others today. We all have the ability to hold groups together when we, ourselves, are centered within our spiritual core for this deepens our self-awareness, understanding and compassion. These are all good qualities that are part of the “Holding Together”.

Personally, I have long believed that we not only work with groups upon the earth plane (family, associates, co-workers) but that we also have a team or group in spirit world that we work with—sort of like “The Adjustment Bureau” (movie) but not exactly. We have family in spirit world and a team of guides and helpers—call them Friends of The Light if you’d like. So, when we need to “hold it together here on the earth”, we can call upon that group to help us.

Other keywords for the archetype of this Kua and thus today’s message are: Joining, Supporting, Participation

In some form–in some way in your life today–there is a NEED FOR UNITY or HOLDING TOGETHER in order to craete positive change.

So how will you interpret this informational guidance or inspirational message today? I will be contemplating this material in my own life as I move throughout the day today – or until the next blog post anyway.

Hold together and make this a beautiful day…

A Change of Pace Blog Post Today AND Family Past Life Regression Material — My Grandson Explained is Natal Chart While in an Altered State!

The washing machine, by the sound of it, is in its final rinse, the rain outside is unceasing; yesterday I took the last antibiotic tablet for a bronchial infection (I think) although I don’t think the ER doc knew for sure what ailed me, exactly. Why? She said it sounds like asthma, presents like bronchitis and while I don’t think its pneumonia, we will treat it  like it is pneumonia. (go figure)  In the end, I suppose it’s just another reminder that I’m getting older and recovery from these minor setbacks takes longer than it used to. Anyway, so much for the lament about the physical (my temporary illness and the remnants of a tropical storm that’s dumping inches-upon-inches on us here in the mountains) as I refuse to think the word “flood”. Let’s move on and talk about the “meta” physical. I want to switch it out today and write about something a little different.

I did work on a little bit of the time (with PAST LIFE REGRESSION PRACTICE) that I had with the family during the family reunion—not as much as I’d have liked’;  but, I tucked away what I did learn and experience. I wanted to write it down here today and get it out  for whatever it may be worth. I told some folks that I’d write about it; so here goes.  Hopefully it will hold a bit of interest for the reader—you’ll have to judge that part for yourself.

A while back I wrote about my own brief glimpses into regression for myself—there were quite a few and I did mention the “light Bulb Factory” worker insight I got from my last past life and was able to validate that such a place did actually exist in the early 1900’s and was operated by Thomas Edison. You know it wasn’t long after that past life regression information came to my mind that I remembered how much I loved (in the current lifetime) going to the Thomas Edison Home tour in Ft. Myers, Florida. He used to live next to Henry Ford there, you know?

Anyway, I don’t know how I could have forgotton this, but we used to go to Edison’s home every Christmastime for they would have it especially decorated—and for Halloween too, now that I remember! We took the full tour a number of times… back when I was married—my husband, children and I. Being infatuated with the place would be an understatement, for I loved going there!

And the light bulb part of his invented things was always where I stood around the longest. Funny how one forgets those things but then when I had the past life regression memory/insight that was linked to Thomas Edison, it felt right. But it wasn’t until weeks later (am I slow, or what?) that I remembered how I used to love to visit the Thomas Edison Home and his Workplace there… I couldn’t seem to get enough!  The point being that my past life memory of working at the Thomas Edison Light Bulb factory in Brooklyn NY in a prior lifetime connects with my current life love of taking the tours of Thomas Edison’s Home and revisiting it at Christmas and Halloween every year while we lived in Florida.  My kids were pre-teen and teen back then (this life).  Anyway…

A FEW FAMILY MEMBER REGRESSIONS:

Oh, and then I  had the past life memory of the horse all of which got retriggered again when watching the movie HIDALGO with my grandson while he was visiting here last month.  I purchased the DVD of that movie long ago and loved it.  My grandson and I watched it together recently—doing so totally re-activated my past life “love for my horse”  feelings.  I blogged about the horse regression a while back.  Anyway…

Here are a few brief insights from various family members regarding their past life recall work.  Only one of  my three daughter’s participated –there wasn’t enough time to regress my other 2 girls.  One of my sister’s participated and so did my niece.

My daughter chose to work on eating issues and her past life recall was to a lifetime where there was no more bread to eat and her mother in that life said the bread was gone—she was a little child in that experience, approximately 3 or 4 years old. As she told about the experience, she cried deeply reliving it (she was starving); it gave her insight into her current eating patterns. She was deeply moved by her memory.

My teenage niece (14 years old) chose to work on issues around getting along with other females at school and vividly recalled a past life in which her husband in that lifetime was seeing other women. One of those women was the girl who she has had trouble getting along with ever since graded school.  My sister was the most difficult one to actually regress—she had a lot of resistance to bringing up any memory. I think some people are just not ready to delve into the subconscious and that is okay and I respect that.  She kept seeing a huge battle ship floating in white light and nothing more.

I really wish I’d had more time.  I know we’ve all reincarnated together before and would have loved to get more information on that.  I already know one of my current life daughter’s was my sister in a prior life and also that another daughter was a mother to me in a prior life.  I know my grandson and I have had a lifetime together in Tibet.  But I would have liked to get more detail.  Why?  I think one reason is that I’m getting older now and approaching the age in which we realize the end is getting closer; it brings great comfort to have these past life validations for it helps to remember that it is ‘not’ goodbye, but rather its ‘see you next time’.  Anyway…

MY GRANDSON’S REGRESSION — I REGRESSED my grandson and he explained his BIRTH CHART while in an ALTERED STATE:

My grandson however—a completely different story! He’s the one that I had the longest time to work with since he stayed with me for a whole week. One night when he couldn’t seem to sleep and neither could I, we decided to have an astrology lesson. He is always asking me about his chart. I admitted to being a bit befuddled about the past life meaning of the symbols.  Then I had the idea to put him into a trance and ask his higher mind (subconscious, unconscious or super-conscious or however you want to name it) to help us understand his natal (birth) chart–specifically, the past life meaning of the locations of planets, houses, etc.  He agreed and said he thought it would be interesting.

I coached him into an altered state (he was an easy subject as he is very calm and intuitive) and we went back into a previous life that would help us understand his chart. He knows very little about astrology and is barely learning the house meanings and the planetary symbols.  During the regression work itself, I didn’t have the chart in front of me.  In fact, I was barely familiar with it aside from knowing his Sun, Moon and Ascendant.  It wasn’t until later (after the regression) that I looked again at the chart and what I saw was pretty amazing.  I’ve included the astro info below for those readers who are familiar with astrology.  I bolded the astrology references–if you have no interest in astrology, you may want to skip over that part, but I hope you will find it interesting anyway.

He was able to get into an altered state easily.  He was in such a  deep trance  state that I had to strain my ears to understand his words—the deeper the state, the more difficult it is to talk.  I totally understood it because I was in the state with him.  However, he did speak.  He was able to tell me how he was a chef in that lifetime and gave details of his work and his private life (non-married and about his family).

Later, I had to laugh a bit about the fact that he was a chef in his past life.   A week or so afterward,  we all went out to a Mexican restaurant and from where we sat it was possible to see the chef bring up the food for the waiters to carry out. I barely noticed that area… what with all the commotion and conversation at the table. But when I looked across at him, I followed his gaze and saw that he was watching the chef. He must have felt my eyes on him because he turned to me and mentioned that the chef didn’t seem very happy and then went on to explain how the mood of the chef affects the food. After having learned about his past life recently, his reason for eyeing the chef in the restaurant made perfect sense to me.

His aunt (my daughter) upon hearing of his past life memory told me how he is always working on his own little food creations in the kitchen at home.

Anyway, back to the regression with my grandson… I took him forward to his death in that lifetime, coaching him that he will not feel any pain and will be able to tell me what is happening. He said that he was confused about how he actually died at first. This made immediate sense to me since he has a SOUTH NODE of the Moon in PISCES – that could, indeed, be the signature of such an event of confusion.  The South Node equals Past Life and Pisces equals confusion as one of its archetypes.

He then described something coming through the windshield and that’s all he knows aside from the fact that he was driving a car, he said. I asked what year it was and 1955 was the answer from his higher mind (currently my grandson is 13 years old).

I asked him to go out of his body at this moment of death and to tell me what he sees and he described being between two cars; a car in front of him and one behind.  Something from the car in front of him came from through the windshield causing his demise.

Now, before I go on, let me say that I’m still learning this process and putting things together—both with astrology and with past life regression.  And in life you could generally call me a “seeker” rather than one who is firmly established in truth and stuck. Therefore, I don’t have all the answers and hope to always keep learning.

And so while maybe I can’t draw any major conclusion, the fact that the intention for the regression was to have the natal chart explained, I find this next part even more interesting. My grandson’s chart does show signatures of a prior life death in an auto accident. His Mercury (a planet that denotes transportation/travel and thus could relate to an automobile) is in his 8th house of death. And very near his South Node (it would have to be a very , very wide conjunction) he has Mars conjunct Jupiter. Being near to the SN (in the same house), this could definitely link to a sudden death (Mars near to or in close aspect to the SN often indicates sudden death) and that Mars conjunct Jupiter (4 degree orb) can be another signature of a sudden death from something to do with transportation since Jupiter relates to travel. Jupiter also relates to education and learning and it seems that this sudden death by auto accident could maybe have something to do with learning. Looking for more clues, I wanted to see where Sagittarius was (since Jupiter rules Sag, thus making a link that could give us a clue) and there in the 7th house was PLUTO in Sag and squaring the Nodes no less!

One of the questions that I asked my grandson was to see if his spirit guide (whom he had previously described as a woman in a white dress with a crown on her head) could tell him what he was supposed to learn in that lifetime so that he could be sure to apply it in this current one.

Now, remember this child is only 13 and I totally can’t imagine these words coming from his mouth in this way if he were not in an altered state.  I believe, therefore, that he actually was talking with his guide when…

 he said, “I wasn’t open to taking advice and because of that I made some bad decisions. In this lifetime I need to be more open to taking advice.”

[ADDED ASTROLOGY:  His Moon/Sun opposition is from houses 3/9 respectively, making the T-square to Saturn in Aries in the 11th.  He will have to work with Venus and Libra to balance that T-square. Also, it looks like he maybe (?) has the “Finger of God” (the Yod)–?! He also has a lot of aspects to his Moon on the  3/9 axis.  Venus rules the chart.  The ruler of the NN is Mercury in the 8th and while I probably need more time to reflect on the evolutionary intent, with the NN in the 4th ruled by Mercury as the resolution node to the skipped step…. well, one thing that jumps out with Sag on the cusp of the 8th there and Merc in Capricorn, it seems that controlling or learning to control (Capricorn) speed (mercury) and enthusiasm (Sag on the cusp of the 8th) might be good overall advice for him.  And this seems correlated by the ruler of Cap, Saturn, in Aries in the 11th–the combination of Saturn and Aries is about controlling fire or controlling impulsiveness perhaps–this being part of the evolutionary intention and resolution of the square from the Nodes to Pluto.  I need to study this chart some more and i am typing this a bit impulsively and intuitively…  but actually what comes to mind is that advice you often hear that goes this way, “Never drive when you are angry”  might be good advice for him too.] 

I find that last bit about what his ‘spirit guide’ said quite interesting with Pluto in Sag in his 7th squaring his nodes. Squares to the Nodes meaning that he is in a re-do and re-live situation with “teacher types” in relationships which is a meaning of Pluto in Sag.

His 9th house is pretty active with the Moon (from the 3rd) opposing the ruler of the SN (Neptune).

By the way, the Mars and Jupiter are in Aquarius and so is Uranus in Aquarius (a strong Uranus as it is in the sign it rules). Uranus and Aquarius are associated with trauma and with Mars and Jupiter in Aquarius and Uranus in the 9th; well, it’s all a validation of the very strong signature of past life travel trauma.

Interesting too, we see Saturn in ARIES in the 11th linking to Uranus in Aquarius thru the 11th house and that Saturn is  squaring the Sun/Moon opposition! The famous T-square! 

Clearly there is more to my grandson’s chart and I won’t bore the reader with too many more  astrological details. It just seems like he did explain his chart for me and was also reminded to be more open to taking advice—this will prove hearty to him when he learns how to drive which he has always been anxious to know how to do! His aunts are always answering his questions about the car and the gears and the traffic laws and so forth.  Mars is about going FAST and so is Mercury in that 8th house…. maybe he was speeding, not listening to advice about not driving fast… one wonders!

In thinking about this, I just recalled how much he ♥ loves ♥ mountain biking–going fast on downhill switchbacks– being daring on a mountain bike. 

His aunt (photo of both of them to the left) fell of the mountain bike downhill twice while he, on the other hand, led the way and yelled back to his aunt what to watch out for!

I will remind him again of all his past life regression memories before he starts driving a car in this lifetime and how he’s supposed to be more open to taking advice so he doesn’t make bad decisions… just like his spirit guide said through his own mind and lips!

So, it is time to take the laundry down to the dryer and move onto other low-key chores for today…..

Before I close this post down and move on for the day, I thought to share something a bit comical *but not funny!*  about a recent blog post in which I bragged to the world about my method for healing is to breathe deeply and to sit in the sun.

Yeah, well, the recent family reunion was too much for my immune system apparently and just after it was over, I had cough and cold symptoms.

My daylong breathing in the sun made things worse and caused my need to get help at the hospital emergency room that night.  Not being one for ever having  allergies in the past, I did not recognize the multitudes RAGWEED growing out back on the ridge only a few feet away where I spent a good part of my day breathing deeply (and coughing more!)  Duhh, No wonder I couldn’t breathe well that night, driving myself to the ER.

Thanks to Google, NOW I know what ragweed looks like!!–it sure didn’t help that I sat next to ragweed breathing deeply alot that day!

Geesh!  Live and learn!–as my mother used to always say.

See what I mean by comical but NOT FUNNY?!

By the way for any interested astrologers out there, here (below) is my grandson’s chart…. Porphyry house system… birth data  omitted intentionally for privacy purposes. 

See anything interesting? Would love to hear any insights from other astrologers out there if you’d like to share them.  What am I missing?  What did I get wrong?

Daily Divination 8-5-11 today the energy of enormous potential is strong! Persevere! Use it wisely for greatest advantage and opportunity – Kua 1, The Creative

”]Co-creating–Heaven and High Achievement—keywords for the day. It will come together—keep at it today and give it time. Today the oracle speaks to us of tenacity and dynamism. What is dynamism? It means drive and enthusiasm. Checking in with myself, I’ve got some of that going on today—and that’s why time is short; so I’ll have to be brief and may have to add the tarot and astrology archetype correlations later or over the weekend. Happy Friday everyone and I hope you’re getting some things accomplished today—I’ve found today that with a bit of tenacity, I’ve concluded with some projects that were sort of difficult to make decision about so I could move forward.

The energy of today is the type in which the energy unfolds gradually over time.

And here we are moving forward, hoping the electric won’t go out again—like it did off and on yesterday; that’s why there was no blog post yesterday. But enough… moving right along here…

Today the I-CHING KUA 1 that is called “The Creative” or “Creating” inspires the message. We’re talking about the ultimate potential capable within us and being receptive to that energy—remaining open so that we can become inspired in the first place. So it is not chasing but letting the energy move you and then simply going with it—sort of like having a good or positive obsession and then using tenacity in combination to bring the inspiration into fruition.

Creativity is yang or male energy and receptivity is yin or feminine. Sometimes we can get so yang that the yin inspiration becomes blocked–that can be like “trying too hard”. But once we get the inspiration from the yin side of our psyche, then we call on the yang part of ourselves to apply or manifest what we’ve been inspired with.

Today it is about high energy moving forward—and I’m in awe once again that I drew a card that is so applicable to my own life and hopefully yours too. When the higher energies want to channel through us, we have to apply that yang tenacity and fortitude.

The outcome of the inspirational energy (yin/feminine) can become distorted if we try too hard or try to manipulate the energy through will—it’s a matter of allowing the natural forces today and going with them and not trying to control them. We have to add our energy to the inspiration but remain in the inspired process without forcing – again—without forcing our own will or interpretation and not manipulating the energy.

I feel it happening today—strong energy moving through and my job is to be in alignment with it. The message today is about an opportunity of great magnitude but we must stay in alignment with highest integrity.  (We can’t manipulate god; know what I mean?)

Must run for now… will add the tarot and astrology later.

Check back on the blog page tonight or tomorrow if you would like those. Have a great weekend everyone!

Daily Divination 7-28-11 Today call upon and direct the collective forces; It’s time to take the bull by the horns – I CHING KUA 7, Discipline

Today we realize that the confusion or ineffectiveness that has gone on for too long must be stopped and it’s time to take the bull by the horns as they say. Create a strategy and stick to it with disciplined focus. The cosmic communiqué comes from Kua 7 of the I-CHING which is called “discipline” or “the army” or “collective forces”.

If you can work together with others to accomplish something today—do so. But even working on your own is effective if determined effort and discipline is applied to clear-cut and worthy goals. Apply your innate right to call upon the collective forces that surround you and direct those energies!

One hopes that this is what is occurring in Washington, DC in the United States today—the time for nonsense has ended and it’s time to end the confusion and distortion and become effective.

In your own life, maybe it is time to start that diet or exercise program or achieve that goal that you have been putting off. Whatever it is, exert your own inner authority and be determined not to allow doubt or excuse or any other weakening thought or attitude.

In certain areas or situations or circumstances of our life we must not fail—failure is not an option! What is that for you today? Gather your inner and outer forces of energy and direct them with authority. If you need to elicit the assistance of others to achieve your goal, provide the reason for them to be dedicated to help you—motivate them!

This Kua 7/Discipline brings to mind the time when I was going to school to receive a degree–in Physical Therapy Program. I developed a “do or die” attitude knowing that at the time my freedom and survival both depended on acquiring the degree and passing the board exams. It was THE most disciplined time in my life (aside from training to run in 10K races, but that’s another story). I’d start to worry… those little doubts tried to creep in on occasion.

Whenever that started to happen, I’d straighten my back, raise my chin and with a stiff upper lip would say to myself, “STOP!”, before the whole thought could fully form. Failure was not an option. That was true for other times in my life too and for all of us there are times when we have to say with determination, “This is how it is going to be, PERIOD—END OF STORY—WILL NOT HEAR ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY!”

And with that I’d gather up the energy and have at it. That’s what today’s message is about; locating those determined feelings and helping others locate them in themselves and then whipping it up and not taking no for an answer. (Well, that’s my take on it anyway.)

I do believe that when we align with a purpose and feel deep within its worth and we have that type of determination, The Universe aligns with us and the Angels sing from the high realms, “So be it, Hallelujah and Amen”. But, that’s me.

Daily Divination 7-11-11 Wait Patiently and Remain Unconcerned; I CHING Kua 5

Periods of waiting are a necessary part of life and  time is not wasted when you are waiting with the confident knowledge that sooner or later the drought will end. Oh, Yes! We’ve all lived this so many times!

If  you are a woman and have been pregnant, you know this waiting period; and if you have gone past your due date, you know it even better! Today’s message addresses a type of  required postponement or delay that is… well, take the example of fruit that falls from the tree when it is exactly ripe.

When I think of the ripeness of fruit, it always has me thinking of karma being ripe and the divine timing of things. I’ve been blogging about my car situation recently– I can use this as an example.

My daughter felt like I was being, to use her words, “taken advantage of” by the local auto place here. (That was her trip, not mine.) Meanwhile, I was in a limbo situation waiting to see if the car (Saturn) that I just bought was going to be able to be fixed. Waiting! Kua 5! There was a short in the ground wire or something which was preventing the car from starting.

My youngest Aries daughter was quite upset and began to tell her friends about this. Meanwhile I was waiting and had no idea of my daughter’s conversations with other people while I was waiting. This epitomizes Kua 5’s meaning—things are happening even when it looks like nothing is!

The kind of progress that is taking place is invisible and everything is being guided by a power greater than yours.That is the basic bottom line of today’s message. To conclude the example just given, if the Saturn car had not malfunctioned the day after I paid for it, I would have gone through with putting the title/registration in my name and would have had more of a problem getting a refund.

Kua 5 – Waiting, Nourishment

Because it did malfunction and because my daughter told her friends about the situation, one of her friends had a car (Pontiac Sunfire) that they were planning to sell in about 6 months, but because of my “story”, she decided to sell it sooner– to me!

But, meanwhile, I was waiting without knowing any of these details regarding the conversation with my daughter and her friend.

When I asked Higher Mind what was going on, what I received was that the delay will work out in your favor and to be patient.

I knew I would somehow have some car or other, but there was a delay. The great gift of waiting had been given to me and the requirement from me was my willingness to step back from the desire to push forward.

I was feeling vulnerable and in the process of “itching to go forward”, I developed a good case of poison ivy as I pulled weeds to vent frustration.

It was continual work to bring myself back to the present moment over and over again. The blessing was that my grandchildren were here to help me do that!

Today’s message is to “wait in trust” in spite of the fact that there are no clear indication as to the timing of events.

There is a deep process occurring within your being that must be completed before external events can shift.

Even though it may seem that life is working against you in some way today, it isn’t.

Just know that everything that is delayed has a good reason for being that way.

I know that it is hard to say “yes” or to accept life circumstances or events that seem to be going backwards or in the wrong direction—a good mantras for these times that we all experience periodically would go something like,

“It ‘is as it is’ and I detach and surrender to the wisdom of the universe in this matter.”

Put your focus on strengthening your sense of well-being—cool down and redirect the energy of impatience to more creative pursuits.

Wait patiently with optimism today! Something new is about to be born!
