Well, that time has arrived. I plan on being mostly quiet for the next 5-6 months, hence many fewer emails and newsletters. Perfect if you wish too and whether Mars is direct and retrograde or not in Gemini I'd say! This will last until March 25th, 2023. Regardless what this cranial surgery has brought to me, the need for more introspection and wholeness will be required. The clinical side of this is fascinating no doubt, but I am here primarily to announce the end of days as a broadcaster on Kindasound.org, change my website (and tenor of the newsletters) and focus abundantly on me.
Mars, the planet of male sexuality, power, and action is currently in Gemini, a sign that focuses a lot of attention of messaging, messages, communications, electricity, movement, etc. In Gemini this is tinged with elements of "what is actually real?" That is, I see it, our primary concern from this month forwards, especially during his stay in Gemini retrograde from October 30th to January 12th. This is longish transit for any inner planet, especially Mars. He will be there from 20th of August 2022 till March 25th 2023.
During this movement, in fact for almost the entirety of it, Mars will be squaring Neptune in Pisces (both retrograde now and direct later). Mars will be direct in Gemini October 12th at 5:00am UT. Both Mars and Neptune will be retrograde at the next meeting, which is November 19th at 15:00:58 UT. Their last and final meetup will be on March 14th, 2023 at 23:27:58 UT, and both will be in direct motion at this time.
With Mars in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces almost this whole transit you can throw a certain amount of logic or clarity about anything out the window. Logical won't work too well. Intuition is mucho better but not infallible either. Simply stated it is best to keep one's mind open to change and possibilities than fixate on one particular outcome or another. In other words, you may wish to retreat a bit into yourself and see what's what and whether any of your beliefs or assumptions are still accurate. With Gemini so prominent in my personal chart (close to the intellect) it is best I not live in my head...at all!
I may entertain some readings with established clients after November 11th so do stay in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com
Above all being gentle with yourself during this life-changing transit is essential. Don't forget that we also have lunations occurring and a certain plethora of outer planets preparing to station direct over the next few months. We have both Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Aquarius to deal with this month.
As always, blessings on you, your closest ones, and your journey,

STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
February 16th, 2022
I know I blitzed you with a ton of information and perspectives in my last newsletter a week ago, so there’s not much I can add to the detail around the USA Pluto Return coming up this Sunday, or much else that is of an astrological nature. You, my Dear Reader, are probably breathing a sigh of relief. Good.
I use to compose my articles the day after a night of unusual dreams. Downloads as it were. That hasn’t happened in a long time, the leftover impressions from the dreamtime spilling over into a blog, but it happened this morning in the early hours. I received a message, or impressions, about what the needed to be most said through me in this blog.
No matter what is or isn’t happening in the world right now, you and I and all of Creation is loved beyond belief. No matter what is or isn’t happening in your life right now, you are loved beyond belief. No matter what will happen or won’t happen, it does not matter…we are loved beyond belief. No matter what, we are that Love, and we emerged from that Love by choice-desire-curiosity.
None of us are an “accident” of the Universe, nor are you and I here because of some whim of The Fates. We have purpose in our Be-ing…even when we don’t feel like we’re fulfilling our believed or adopted purpose. Sometimes our egos hijack our purpose, or distort it, or diminish it. The rock-solid truth you can always rely on is that, in the end, the truth if this: you are Love/Loved beyond belief.
And no matter who you are, and even though you may feel alone at times, no one is alone…ever.
Now some of what I relate here will already be familiar to most of you, and you’ve heard it all before. If so, that’s great! However, I must honestly say that almost everyone I speak with these days is dealing with something challenging. The continuing agenda of separating humanity into two classes of people still ripples throughout the collective experience. We all know this is instinctively “wrong” but most figure there’s nothing one can do about it. Perhaps we are so wrapped up on keeping up with our own life and it’s complexities, focusing only on our own personal triumphs or tragedies. Nonetheless, this divisiveness is useful, in one sense. It awakens us to our own inner duplicities or divisions and can help us realize that this artifice we call our “civilization” or “culture” is unsustainable and running in place to fit into its imposed agenda is a zero-sum game.
Existentially speaking, it is all unsustainable. Fearing the unknown, we cling to the past masquerading as the present and hope that we’ll get to the “new normal” somehow. What I didn’t see or understand until late last week is how much of what we call “our experience” is imposed on our lives without our consent, so much so that the plans we make, the dreams we hold about what we want in our own soul’s experience takes a back seat within this “matrix” of sorts.
Is God/Goddess doing that? Well, trick question. Since we are inextricably part of God/Goddess, I reckon we all bear some responsibility, as we allow whatever this is to continue. Some of us are acquiescing to the illusion and some are going “what a minute…that doesn’t feel right or good to me!” Remember, no matter what’s happening, somehow and at some point in the future it will all work out for the best. You are always at choice in what you will or will not participate with. With what has happened and is happening, you have a choice in how you relate to it, and what you will or will not allow to continue in your experience.
We are infinite and eternal. Nothing is imposed without some level of tacit permission given…by you or me. Even if we don’t want this or that challenge in our lives to be occurring, it is there for a reason. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be there! Karmic or not, it is what it is. What is unfolding, including the so-called darkness and chaos, is part of the awakening/remembering/maturing process, and we are sharing in all of it.
We set up the tenpins so we can knock them down. The Universe suggests that we just don’t make a habit out of it. Then it turns into what we call “our karma”. Unconscious repetition isn’t evolution! Through it all we are still Love/Loved beyond belief.
The atmosphere is filling up with more uncertainties, chugging along in our peripheral vision, and/or intruding into our daily activities. As the old scripture says, “Fear not. Even if the mountains should slide into the sea, I Am with you, always.” That message is Love reminding us again that we…are…never…alone. There is nothing that is inherently within us, that doesn’t want to help.
True mastery doesn’t mean standing as a lone entity in the entirely of Creation, impervious and totally transpersonal. It also includes embracing all that is, and still not falling into forgetfulness of Who We Are beyond all form or circumstance. That is what being “rock solid” is, and that is what Spirit is…rock solid, always there…and everywhere. No judging, no punishments, no force or coercion, no dogma, or rules. Just Love, being Love.
Rock solid baby!
Blessings on your journey,

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 20th, 2022
Show Synopsis: It is here…the main event of 2022. An elevated point of view and feeling fully grounded will be essential to fully comprehend how massive the changes ahead will be. I cannot predict exactly what the initiation or outcome of any event that manifests from the potent and irresistible force of the Pluto Return in the USA Natal Chart will be. I do sense that as with anything Plutonic it will be intense, and long-lasting. Since this celestial event is focused on the 2nd House of America’s birth chart, the emphasis will be on the theme of security and power, or lack thereof. It will center on money, currencies (fiat, digital and crypto), housing, food, farming, stocks, bonds, equities, futures, real estate, trading, and fertility. Also thrown into the mix will be secrets becoming known, revelations of official frauds and Ponzi schemes, and anything or everything having to do with the old control and power-over game. However, that will only be possible by renouncing that game and allow it to fade into the mists of time. Time for new beginnings.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.

Endings and Beginnings
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE:
“Endings and Beginnings”
January 14th, 2022
Happy New Year (of the Tiger?)
For my first article of 2022 I had intended to discuss some of the more significant Astrology and Energy events for the second half of the month of January. As usual, the Universe sometimes has other ideas, and all it takes is one or two events not looked for to change one’s outlook and direction. I will address what that event was in brief, then attempt to describe the Energies of the moment as succinctly as I can. Remember…what I offer is only an opinion, and whatever information or guidance I supply must either resonate in your being somewhere, or not. If it doesn’t vibe with you, chuck it out the window!
Right after New Year’s weekend I decided to not launch myself back into my myriad projects and unfinished business that had been dogging me since before the Christmas break. Instead, I opted remaining quiet and observe what has been going on inside and outside of myself. There was just zero impulse to push or make anything happen…at least not yet.
Then, this past Monday morning I received word of the death of a very close friend whom I met during my days of living in West Cork, in the south of Ireland. She was a vibrant, engaging soul, with a winning smile and loads of intelligence. She worked at one of the only two health food stores in the area and was super knowledgeable about diet and supplements. She eventually went on to study and get a degree in nutritional coaching and natural medicine and had a thriving practice in her hometown.
My marriage was faltering at this time, and we shared all the usual ups and downs about love, relationships and so on. She was in and out of relationships during this time, and we provided a sounding board and support for each other which was treasured. We also laughed a lot over delicious coffees and Irish scones. In any case, after my separation I moved back to the U.K. and she went on to live part-time in the south of Spain, doing a lot of her health consulting work online. Then the pandemic and lockdowns ensued, and things changed quickly. She came back to Ireland, and basically got stuck there. We had been in regular contact all last year, and I last spoke with her about two weeks before Christmas. There was no indication of anything being amiss. Exactly 30 days passed between that conversation and her death.
My partner and I both knew her very well, so we are still reeling from the sudden shock of her passing. The suddenness of someone’s death is always a blow, especially when someone is as young, vibrant, and infinitely kind and compassionate as she was. It also gets you to focus on what is essentially important. The details and business of life looks somewhat banal and meaningless by comparison. Strangely enough, I had just finished reading a book a few days before this sad news that is all about death and dying. It’s entitled “Home with God” by Neale Donald Walsch. I highly recommend it to anyone who desires a different perspective and deeper understanding of this touchiest of subjects.
Of course, I went looking for any clues in her natal chart that might shed light on her death but came away mostly unsatisfied. However, the energies that we currently are experiencing have been somewhat less frenetic and at the same time a bit wobbly. In that vein I will attempt to provide some insights as to what we can expect going forwards from today until the first of February. But before I do so, I would like to invite anyone who feels so movedto offer a blessing for my friend that passed on this week, and to send healing and comfort to her family and the multitude of friends and grateful clients she had. I was one of her clients during 2021, and her assistance was a key to my recovery from a serious health issue. Her name was Alison, from Cork, Ireland. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
People are being born on this planet every single minute and dying every single minute. It is part of ‘What Is So’. To come to grips with one’s mortality is a heroic and necessary part of living, and we don’t give near enough attention to this part of our journey. No single person’s death is insignificant, nor is it random, no matter what the manner of passing they’ve chosen. Taken as a whole, it is important to acknowledge that we would do well to acknowledge death not as a curse, but as a rite of passage that is part of our coming into the wisdom and remembrance of who we really are. At some point even death will cease to be held in fear. The need for dying will itself will also vanish once we have reached a particular stage of reunion with our Source Consciousness. This is where every soul is bound, no matter how long it might take us.
The Energy Recap – January 14th to January 31st, 2022:
The astrological weather has now gone from being rather subdued to becoming very jumbled and uplifting, all at the same time. Mercury will begin its first retrograde journey of 2022 today, reversing direction at 11:40 AM GMT at 10 degrees of Aquarius, and conjunct (close) to Saturn at 14 Aquarius. In fact, by the time you reading this, it has already begun.
Between now and February 3rd the Winged Messenger will travel backwards through the early Aquarian degrees into the Earth sign of Capricorn, before turning around and heading back to where it started at 10 degrees of Aquarius. All Mercury Retros take about 9 weeks to complete. The shadow phase about two weeks prior to the retrograde point, then the 3 weeks or so for the actual backwards journey, then two more weeks to traverse the degrees forward till he arrives back at the starting gate. We get four Mercury Retrogrades this year…very unusual!
During this retrograde Mercury will conjunct Pluto at 26 and 27 degrees of Capricorn. A relentless digging to unearth some truth will be happening, collectively and individually. If you have any natal planets hanging out between 25 degrees of Capricorn to 10 degrees in Aquarius, Leo, Pisces, or Virgo, you’ll get to see what gets lit up in your blueprint. Also, and I am serious about this, Mercury Retrogrades ask us to examine what we’re thinking about, and why, and if there’s any truth still in those thoughts. We can take this opportunity to put more emphasis on our intuition and feeling natures, rather than simply rely on the monkey-mind in our left-brain.
It also is a good idea to back up data, check your anti-virus update status, avoid starting a new business or enterprise, sign any important documents, or make any big purchases that involve electronics or vehicles. Purchasing land or a home? If possible try to postpone signing anything until early February. Again, work with the energy consciously…and don’t panic if you must buy a new toaster or something like that. Just do what is necessary without anxiety or pushing.
On Monday the 17th we get a real corker of a Full Moon. Sun and Moon at 27 degrees of Capricorn and Cancer respectively. Just before that happens, the Sun and Pluto well team up on the 16th. Then on the 17th at approximately 11:37 PM GMT the Sun, Pluto, and Juno conjunct each other, and Juno gets up close and personal with the Moon. This will be an interesting mix with the emphasis on several disparate issues. The Sun energy is about core identity, Juno about preservation of traditions – especially regarding families and couples, and Pluto, the Lord of Death, whose archetype represents relentless growth and transformation through letting go of anything that no longer serves us…willingly or not! All that energy is harnessed behind the Nodes of the Moon, and opposite the Moon in Cancer (see chart below).
This chart is very wobbly, without any symmetry or balance. Hence the Moon becomes the recipient of a load of conflicting energies from Sun, Pluto, and Juno. It may feel like our egos experience multiple ego deaths of one degree or another. Again, if you have any sensitivity to all this look for any planets or angles in your blueprint that are at or near 26 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra. All of these signs are in the Cardinal elements, so it may feel more pressing and stronger than usual. Of course, the energies of Capricorn and Aquarius are at present defining the feeling that our space is shrinking. Tyranny or draconian agendas are trying to get firmly entrenched, just hoping that the extreme levels of fear being generated will force compliance to “the rules.” I will provide you with new data over the next few weeks that counterpoint and countermand these impulses, along with my interpretations of what we need to be paying attention to, as well as what actions we can take as individuals to preserve our freedom to choose how to live the lives we want to live, and to establish and strengthen our commitment to health and healing on all levels of our experience of being human…and divine, and part of this planet and the Cosmos.
The third biggie is two days later, when Uranus finally turns direct in the sign of Taurus. Uranus has been idling along in backwards motion since turning Retrograde on August 19th, 2021. Having this archetype-energy of unpredictability and revolution turning around in the energy of Mercury Retro and a punchy Full Moon will give us that same kind of thrill as that moment you get just before the roller coaster tops the first big hill and begins its descent on the far side. Thrilling, but you may feel a bit white-knuckled by the sudden acceleration. This energy is the proverbial unforeseen monkey wrench in the works. Watch for possible shifts in global financial or commodities markets. I always recommend the Solari Report or Trends Research Journal for analysis and updates that make sense and possess a high degree of integrity.
Lastly, next week’s marathon includes the Nodes of the Moon changing signs from Sagittarius-Gemini to Scorpio-Taurus. Since Uranus is in Taurus, and Pluto is also in the Earth sign of Capricorn, the Nodes will stimulate those two outer planets significantly over the next eighteen months or so. The North Node in Taurus will trine Pluto on February 6th, and conjunct Uranus August 6th this year. There are many more aspects that the transiting Nodes will make to inner and outer planets, but these two dates I’ve provided may stand out large. The archetype of Taurus represents in symbolic form the themes of tribe, primary partner, sex for procreation and pleasure, fecundity, planting the crops, food growing and distribution, natural resources, money or modes of exchange, home and shelter, clothing and implements and in short anything that has to do with security and comfort. Scorpio resonates with acquisition, issues of power with or power over, Life, Death and Sexuality, legal proceedings, wills, inheritances, legacies, property, mystical practices and secrets, desires, obsessions, passions, and simply getting to the bottom of things.
After these events take place, the Sun moves into Aquarius on the 20th of January, and then just five hours after midnight on February 1st, we get a New Moon at 12 degrees of Aquarius, conjunct Saturn at 15 degrees of Aquarius. This for me is of those testing points, on what sort of Aquarian Age will we choose. A human one, or a transhumanist one. We will have to wait and see what we present to ourselves and what the world presents to us after the events of next week. On February 1st the Chinese New Year begins in the sign of the Water Tiger. Grrrr...
Summary: We have two very strong allies in the skies during all of 2022: Jupiter in Pisces and Chiron in Aries. The Jupiter effect is to expand and amplify, throw blessings around, and in Pisces encourage us to seek a deeper spiritual connection within ourselves and our Planet. It is a gentle and loving hotline to Home, to Spirit.
Chiron in Aries will be reminding us to that we are all individual expressions of the Divine, and that we possess the authority over what we allow or do not allow. Chiron was the outcast, the loner, and so it may feel like that for anyone who is personally resisting mandates and the intense coercion to comply with outer authority or herd mentality.
Perhaps mass demonstrations and protests are useless. Perhaps each one of us standing in our power of "no" is the way to go. A perspective worth investigating and pondering for sure. There are many people throughout our history who embodied this quality of spirit: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Robert Kennedy, Malcom X, the hunger strikers in Belfast prisons during The Troubles in Northern Ireland. Individuals and small groups of people who demonstrated courage in the face of overwhelming opposition, and at great personal cost to themselves. Will we dare to follow in their footsteps?
From Spaceweather.com – “SOLAR CYCLE UPDATE: Solar Cycle 25 is heating up. New sunspot counts from NOAA confirm that the young solar cycle is outperforming the official forecast. monthly value at the end of December 2021 was more than twice the forecast, and the highest in more than 5 years. The "official forecast" comes from the Solar Cycle Prediction Panel representing NOAA, NASA, and International Space Environmental Services (ISES). Using a variety of leading indicators, the Panel predicted that Solar Cycle 25 would peak in July 2025 as a relatively weak cycle, similar in magnitude to its predecessor Solar Cycle 24. Instead, Solar Cycle 25 is shaping up to be stronger. Sky watchers have already noticed the change. "We are definitely seeing the effects on the ground in the Arctic!" reports Chad Blakley of the Swedish tour guide service Lights over Lapland. "Auroras now are the best in years." – Data courtesy of Spaceweather.com.
I cannot report any hard data at this moment regarding interstellar influences per se, such as the Schumann Resonance fluctuations or gamma rays coming in from deep space. However, I am aware that we are experiencing massive influxes of energy that perhaps originates from other dimensions of parallel realities. Coupled with the end of the Long Count Mayan calendar and end of time (as we’ve known it), and the turning of the great ages from Pisces to Aquarius, we are all being offered a new set of choices.
What we do with these intense times in response to the many forms of stimuli we are receiving is still hanging in the balance. There are many serious and pressing issues we face as a species. Will we have the courage to do the right thing, and choose Life – an organic and dynamic state of being while having a human experience, full of light, health, equanimity, and joy? Or will we submit and succumb to the will of others, or other forces, that seek to enslave and dominate?
We are coming to a time of many endings, and a time of many new beginnings. I am feeling quite optimistic about it all. I would just prefer the transition to be a lot less full of uncertainty, pain, and suffering. I hope you feel the same way as well.
Blessings on your journey…

What, Me Worry?
State of the Planet
October 22nd, 2021
By Isaac George
“The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. – Richard Rudd, author of The Gene Keys”
It is said that worry is a prayer for something you don’t want. Conversely, it could also be viewed that by worrying or feeling anxious, one will magnetize the feared negative outcome in a stronger fashion than any other competing thought or feeling. I know that I’m playing in the quantum mechanics and law of attraction tourism arena here, however what often gets overlooked in this perspective is another, deeper understanding. Do we really have the ultimate control of all experience and the circumstances that arises as part of the phenomenon that the material universe is constantly presenting to us?
Our choices do have consequences and results…no quibbling about that! However, when we do choose, and then we don’t like the results and are still left feeling hungry, we start the process all over again and what gets subconsciously included in our next choosing is the sense that somehow something will go wrong and we’ll still be left feeling hungry and unfulfilled. Kind of a vicious circle I’d say. Perhaps the Buddha was right when he surmised that all suffering derives from the desire nature.
I have been reading a book called “The Gene Keys” by Richard Rudd. His model of reality is entirely based on a multi-level, multi-dimensional understanding about Consciousness and how it expresses itself through our DNA. One of the best bits about this treatise, is how the shadow portion of each of the 64 codons in our DNA function. The “ah-ha’s” are quite extraordinary, and I love how he doesn’t make the shadow aspects out to be something that we are victimized by. We’re just unawares of how it operates, for all humans, everywhere, and no matter what epoch or era we’re talking about. You can find out more on your own here.
Ultimately, worry and anxiousness cause a lot more grief than a set of inconvenient feelings and emotions. It wears our bodies down, colors our perceptions, and ages us faster than we realize. If we would try to adapt our perceptions and perspectives to the concept that Life is an experience, or an adventure, or even an experiment, we may actually be able to shed a lot of our anxieties about whatever the future holds in store.
Like the silly iconic image of Alfred E. Neumann gracing the covers of Mad Magazine, blithely stating “what, me worry?, we can almost discern the same kind of slightly amused perspective that enlightened mystics are known for. The world is full of drama, but is it fruitful or healthy to continue to be seduced by the romance of the drama? Wouldn’t it be healthier and saner to lift that weight we carry off our shoulders, and taking a lighter approach? I feel this is part of snapping out the trance that the majority of the world’s population is engaged with at the moment. The Maya (illuson) indeed!
One thing of note is that the Gene Keys and the Human Design System share the same assertion that the next evolutionary step upwards for humanity is due to arrive in 2027. Only just over 5 years away! An interesting assertion for sure, and one worth hanging around for. Only time will tell I reckon. In the meantime, try to not worry…okay?
Peace, love and blessings on your journey,

Revealing the Mysteries Radio Hour forSunday, October 24th, 2021
Show Synopsis: The die is cast; the bifurcation of humanity seems almost inevitable. Fear is blind and deaf…and no matter what we might say or do to engage with those brainwashed by The Matrix and try to show them a different understanding, they probably won’t listen.

Those that are in resonance with you will be with you. In this episode I offer a higher and wider perspective on how to cope with what is unfolding, and better than that, how to cultivate peace and fulfilment for you and those you love. Not buying into the fear program is one part of it. Second tip: if you keep prodding at closed systems, they will attack you in order to defend themselves. There is a middle way, and wiser way. Join me for this exploration and welcome the new world that is to come. (Some astrology included).

The Divine Wisdom of Your Body
State of the Planet: September 10th, 2021
By Isaac George
Greetings Fellow Earthlings,
With all that is going on these days on Planet Earth our bodies are under stress like we’ve never known before. On one hand there are a myriad of planetary-human dramas to cope with. Then, there are the provocative influences from the increasing rate of vibrations and frequencies rising, sometimes called Ascension, and the pressure it places on our biology and mental-emotional wellbeing. Astrology is a language for interpreting a lot of this, but I’d like to only mention one thing in that regards. Last Tuesday’s New Moon in Virgo. The uptick in sunspots and other solar/Cosmic phenomena coincides with all this, producing geopathic stress.
My personal experience and the experience of those who’ve been in touch with me this past week has been one of upset stomachs, extreme fatigue, weird dreams, episodes of insomnia, irritability, feelings of spaciness and walking in a dreamlike trance, etc., etc. Between our awareness and the planetary sphere, our bodies are getting pushed and pulled in many ways. Amazing how resilient they are, until they are not. Self-care is Numero Uno during these times.
Since we currently find ourselves living inside an artificial digital reality one thing that seems to get increasingly ignored is listening to the body. Pressures at work, home, in relationships, or from medical issues cropping up, all add the noise in which it is difficult to hear what our bodies are saying. Ungroundedness is not just a symptom…it’s a warning.
We can only hear that body when we still our minds and emotions. Really get quiet. Meditation is often equated with the attainment of inner knowledge and acquiring spiritual attributes. Too often mindfulness leaves out the body and if ignored or left out of the picture long enough, they will complain. Our soul has a way to get our attention in such matters…create an illness or discomfort. This gets our attention focused right quick! “What’s wrong with me?” the mind says. “Oh my God, I might be/have (fill in the blank)!!” says the emotional body. Once it has our attention or flattens us with a cold or something more severe, we tend to force ourselves to get well so we can return to the battle. Bad idea. That was not the reason our soul/body intelligence wanted to get our attention about…so we could then plunge headlong back into the world or pressure and responsibilities too soon.
We need to slow down, take stock, and find out what messages our bodies are sending us (from our Spirit and Soul of course). Don’t hasten the healing…allow it to happen! Of course, there are many drugs and natural remedies out there. Some mask the symptoms. Some help our body’s natural capacity for healing. But we need to stop and listen to what OUR body wants and needs first, what direction to take. If the illness is a serious one, then the investigation will have to go deeper to examine how we are hurting ourselves and our bodies by living the way we do, what is in our diet, what we are thinking about, and what we are in fear about.
To make the necessary changes takes will and intention. Incorporating somatic listening (body listening) as part of our meditation or reflection routine is one answer. Another is to pay attention to where our attention is going. Messages in cyberspace via media may be one thing that we need abstinence from. Checking in to our emotions via how deeply or how shallow our breathing is another option. If you’re shallow-breathing, you’re in flight or fight mode. Low oxygenation leads to lower immune levels and a risk of all those helpful little microbes in our bodies keeping things in balance.
Lastly, I have recently discovered the magic healing properties of mushrooms, in particular Cordyceps and Turkey Tail. One or the other, or both, can help restore life force energy, reduce fatigue, boost immunity, and calm the nerves. Another nerve tonic is magnesium. If you can find Calm Natural magnesium powder, this is a great supplement.
The final helpful hint is pleasure. Do whatever helps your body, and you, to feel good. Pleasure can be in many forms, and perhaps you know already what works for you. If so, great! Doing what brings pleasure to our bodies can boost our immune systems and keep all of our systems humming along harmoniously.
One recommendation is to talk and give thanks to our bodies for all they do to support us in our journeys here. Then pet your pet, go for a massage, have a epsom salts or bubble bath, snuggle with somebody, stretch or do some yoga, have a nap...whatever it takes. Out bodies are gift from the Divine, and they truly are dependent on us as we are on them. Treat yours with love and respect, and it will pay off grandly!
That’s it for this week and hope you might find my radio show topic for this week intriguing. All about pleasure and somatic awareness. Details below.
As always, I am at your service as a mentor, and Astro-Therapist to assist you in understanding your position in the Big Story of Life and letting go of the little story. Just click here for an opportunity to discuss what sort of guidance, healing and support you want.
Blessings on your journey,
Social distancing, OCD washing with anti-bacterial soaps, masks, and fear of others as carriers of disease and death has predominated our cultures for the past 17 months. One casualty has been to our feeling safe, and our capacity for trust. Will you only date those who have been vaccinated, or unvaccinated? Another big casualty is our capacity and need for connections, sexuality and healthy pleasure. Since so much of the world has moved online during the pandemic, the rise in cyber-sex and virtual partners has risen dramatically. What is this doing to our innate need for touch, intimacy and just being seen and acknowledged as another human being with needs and desires? We are being dehumanized in stages, and we need to vigorously claim our birthright to pleasure, connection and yes, even sexuality. A sprinkling of Tantra will also be featured. Join me for a one-hour journey back to the roots of our innate and spiritual core as playful and loving beings. It’s good for your health and immune system…on all levels!
All shows air at 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, and 10:30pm PDT.
