On that Tuesday morning 18 years I was still half awake on the West Coast when the phone rang. A friend on the Eastern seaboard let us know what was happening in New York City, and we got the television turned on just before the South Tower collapsed. However, even as my partner at the time was relaying what our friend was telling her over the phone, a small voice inside me whispered, “don’t panic, its all a setup.” I didn’t question that, and my whole body resonated with the truth that was implicit in it. What unfolded during that day, and the days and weeks and years since, has only reinforced that knowing – that it has all been a setup. I’ll get back to that concept in a minute.
Probably like you, I’ve never felt like I was from “here”. As a young child, I’d look up at the stars and think, “That’s home. Why am I here then?” I perceive that some of us certainly have lineages to other races and worlds out there, but our intrinsic story of how human beings came to be, and our part in that story, has been well hidden from us…on purpose. I’ve come to understand that when we long to go Home, it is a clue to a bonding trauma that our souls remember from a time deeply burned into our eternal memory banks. It is symbolic of our false belief in separation from Source Consciousness and Love. This did not come about because of a Fall, but because of a Push. The divine dream for our souls and for humanity was intended to be along a different road, with a different story, than what we have inherited on this Planet.
So we looked to the wisdom of the Ancients for answers, and delved into the old metaphysical texts and traditions, along the teachings from various Adepts and messages from Higher Beings beyond our world. A very few enlightened souls have pointed the way Home, but they have been few…too few.
During my life I’ve witnessed how those of us who are the Seekers have embraced and released many of these methods, traditions, beliefs and doctrines. Some aspects are full of Truth and worth keeping. Some have been proven to be full of hollow promises, and in some cases, vehicles for subtle enslavement or deception.
At the turn of the last Millennium many were strongly suspecting that a mass awakening would occur, and much on this world would be healed and a new era of love, compassion, cooperation and prosperity would envelope us. The environment would be respected…and repaired. Altruism would replace capitalism. This mass awakening would render the Old Order of politics and religions obsolete, creating the fertile ground for a universality of spiritual paths in which all were respected as roads that lead homeward. Then, the stolen election of 2000, followed by 9/11 happened. We went into collective shock.
In the run up to the Iraq War in early 2003, some of us joined with millions of regular people to voice our opposition to this opportunistic and dangerous war, only to be ignored by those we elected and trusted. From then until now, we continue to experience one shockwave after another…and it doesn’t seem to be letting up or getting better, no matter what individual efforts towards further spiritual growth and illumination we make. The reason for this does not lie in some fault in ourselves.
We hardly created the causes that have created the conditions in which we now find ourselves. However, if we continue to discover, embody and act from the place of the power of Love within us, we can affect the direction, change the course, make a huge difference. The time is short for this to occur. The acceleration of climatic change and ecological decay is obvious. What is also obvious is how the decay is now apparent system wide. All political surety around democracy is severely damaged, make everyone vulnerable to those who value power and greed above all else. The financial and monetary systems are corrupt, based on debt and fraud. The air isn’t fit to breath, the water fit to drink (and it’s under threat), and the food isn’t fit to eat. Just to survive, many are forced to ignore the larger issues and strive to make it from payday to payday in order to feed themselves and their families. Can anyone look around and think that this is what God-Goddess desires for human beings?
Our choice is obvious. Evolve or perish as a species, as Nature and the planet press the reset button and usher in a new eon that will not include humans and many other lifeforms. It’s happened before…five times.
Back to the “setup.” To be fully conscious and awake as a human being, to be a Spirit and not a ghost, we need to recognize that within us dwells the utmost ability to imagine and actualize a different outcome, and a different world. Not just for you and me, but for others, and those younger generations that are growing up even now. I may not see its fruition, but I will not stop trying and working to bring it about.
When all looks hopeless, it’s time to remember what faith looks and feels like. It’s time to surrender to that greater Power within us that gave us Life, and the power to imagine anything. It’s the power that creates Life, from the seed to the towering oak…almost effortlessly. The story can be different, but we first must attend to where we are holding onto beliefs, opinions, attachments or sacred cows that no longer serve. To that end, we can and must make the break from the world that we grew up in. That needs to happen in order that we do not repeat the errors of the past. The looping game stops with us, or we all stop.
But first, we will have to pass through the Eye of the Needle.
The next 18 months or so are very critical for all of us and the Earth. It should be a time in which we are willing to surrender and admit that none of us, individually or collectively, has all the answers to the big issues, or our own best good. Events in the outer reality are crystallizing towards a crescendo of crises unprecedented in the collective history of the planet. Astrological markers like the Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn contacts that started this year, will especially make a big noise during the first 5 months of 2020. This will test many. I don’t say this to scare everyone, but to bring awareness and channel powerful solutions both personally and collectively.
I understand perfectly if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by all this. May I suggest trying what you haven’t tried before? If those inherited rituals, cultural indoctrinations, or the beliefs that you were told would make you enlightened aren’t working any longer, and you’re doing them out of habit, then perhaps you could try to follow your own wisdom in your heart. Let go of the rules and become a law unto yourself. We were designed in the image of Nature, or the Feminine spirit that dwells within Nature if you will. All Nature’s creatures know their nature and express it without censoring. They all value freedom above all else.
When we let go (heal) our inherited “stuff”, then our nature can shine through, and we can know a freedom no society or government can guarantee to us. The ego and all its fears and worries will gravitate to its rightful position as an instrument of the Soul’s evolution, and Spirit and Heart will regain the throne of the Self - knowing itself as itself and yet One with All That Is. This is the core of the work of transformation. To become fully human…a human embodying the Divine Dream. Then will we know Heaven on Earth.

“If you learn music, you'll learn most all there is to know.” – Edgar Cayce, America’s Sleeping Prophet
Music and the sound of the human voice are very compelling mediums for the direct transmission of deeper spiritual truths and a wide variety of emotional states. In this dimension of duality, we are constantly immersed in a symphony of sound from cradle to grave. Our mother’s voice (and the attending nurses or doctors) are one of the first sounds we are exposed to. At our transition from this life, the voice of a relative or loved one may be the last thing that lingers in the memory of our soul.
Edgar Cayce’s quote above wasn’t his only one regarding music or sound. He also stated that “music is the bridge between the Infinite and the finite.” There are dimensions of sound that reach beyond the physical world as well. Anyone can dream, and in our dreams we hear people speaking, sounds of the surroundings, even music, and all without the benefit of eardrums or auditory nervous system. Speaking of dreaming music…that was one of the ways that the famous German composer Ludwig Von Beethoven wrote most of his greatest symphonies late in his life. He’d gone deaf but would wake up in the middle of the night hearing entire orchestral arrangements and busily wrote them down on music staff paper. The 9th Symphony was composed this way, and he conducted this complex piece without hearing a single note of it! I believe he heard it though, with his inner ears.
The vocal range and timbre (tonal quality) varies dramatically from one person to the next. Some people’s voices soothe while others irritate. Some persons possess a speaking or singing voice that seems somehow heavenly or comforting. Heart Resonance research is discovering strong neural links between the hearts and throats of some people, and in some cases the voices of these individuals are a carrier-wave of their heart frequency.
Conversely, the experiments by Robert Monroe, founder of the Monroe Institute, determined that music and sound could have therapeutic applications as well as enhance brainwave states and levels of conscious experience. His Hemi-Sync recordings are quite well known for integrating the right and left hemispheres of the brain, bypassing the corpus callosum, an altering consciousness, thereby enhancing dreaming and even facilitating out-of-the-body experiences.
Many mystic and shamanic traditions already knew this. Use of rhythmic drumming alongside other instruments could elevate shamanic states. Sometimes the use of psychotropic plants was also involved. In most cases though, drumming alone can induce deep changes in one’s psyche, and bring up and heal emotional traumas. I experienced such a transformation myself when participating in an Ojibwa sweat lodge ceremony. I had a deer antler to beat the dirt floor with in time with the other participants collection of rattles and hand drums. Very powerful indeed! I went through a 90-day detox afterwards.
Music coupled with the human voice has also been a centrepiece of spiritual rituals and practices for much of humankind’s history. Chanting, vocalisations, lyrics with music, they all have been employed to bring us closer to a sense of the Divine within us, and in the Universe. In our times, guided meditations, music for relaxation, somatic therapies or massage hve become a huge part of the planetary awakening and healing processes. The boundaries between cultures and traditional eras have crumbled both in pop, worldbeat and trance music, as much as it has in alternative therapies. Our sonic palettes have expanded to include electronic beats and textures. When we activate our throat center, and cultivate the connection to our heart and sacral, the invocation to the sacredness in all life blooms.
Personally I am fascinated by sounds of the natural world. The ambience of a forest with myriad bird and insect sound, wind in the tree canopy, or water coursing in its banks, all provide a rich backdrop for getting in touch within and appreciating the diverse realm of Nature. In my recording work, I like to employ sounds from outside as much as possible, as this helps us to naturally attune to the planetary pulse, the Schumann Resonance, or a bio-electromagnetic field of Gaia. I also rely on ambient music to unwind and center, and favour the new legions of guitarists creating sound beds and dream beds that have a deep emotional core. Check out the albums by David Helpling and Jon Jenkins to see what I mean (Treasure, The Crossing, and Found).
I’m first and foremost an electric guitarist and taught myself how to play and compose on a synthesizer. My home digital recording studio is no replacement for playing live with other musicians, but it has been an incubator for my personal compositions and produced my one and only CD with it. From around 2012 I occasionally dabbled with helping alternative therapists, counsellors and coaches to create their own guided meditations, online tutorials, or soundtracks for video.
Then something happened two years ago during a time I was in a slump and feeling like I’d lost something vital to myself. A quick session with an amazing Tarot reader in Dublin set me straight. She sternly stated how important playing music and sharing my musical gifts were, and how I’d been lazy about it. Her words brought tears of longing to my eyes, and I remembered what a powerful force for self-expression and losing one’s egocentric perception playing my guitar was for me. She encouraged me to join a band, play a few gigs, and have some fun. I also started offering my recording engineering and producer skills to the healers and counsellors again too.
Well, here I am in the fifth month of the year, and I’m once again helping others to realize their creative and professional dreams to put their voice and vision out there through the medium of voice and sound and on video.
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to record your own voice with music, but the technology is too much for you to get your head around, or you’re afraid of how you’ll sound or whatever, I’d like to help. You can arrange a free call with me to see how you can get started even if you don’t have the knowledge or equipment to do so now.
By the way, part of my background was in the music retail industry, and I not only know the gear and how to use it, I’ve also written and spoken copy for radio advertisements. I can be your voice coach as well!
The other bonus is that I was constantly using my own guided meditations in public events and private workshops for almost 15 years, so I know how to coach you in how to craft your presentation as well.

The Disease of More (An excerpt from a blog by Mark Mason)
“I recently met a guy who, despite having a massively successful business, an awesome lifestyle, a happy relationship, and a great network of friends, told me with a straight face, that he was thinking of hiring a coach to help him “reach the next level.”
When I asked him what this elusive next level was, he said he wasn’t sure, that that’s why he needed a coach, to point out his blind spots and show him what he’s missing out on.
“Oh,” I said. And then stood there awkwardly for a moment, gauging how brutally honest I was willing to be with someone I just met. This guy was very enthusiastic, clearly ready to spend a lot of money on whatever problem someone decided to tell him he had.
“But what if there’s nothing to fix?” I said.
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“What if there is no ‘next level?’ What if it’s just an idea you made up in your head? What if you’re already there and not only are you not recognizing it, but by constantly pursuing something more, you’re preventing yourself from appreciating it and enjoying where you are now?”
He bristled a bit at my questions. Finally, he said, “I just feel like I need to always be improving myself, no matter what.”
“And that, my friend, might actually be the problem.”
(original post: https://markmanson.net/disease-of-more)
Does this sound like you, or someone you know? From my vantage point some spiritual peeps are also in the same boat. Always chasing the next level, the next epiphany, the next big high. Trying to achieve enlightenment is an oxymoron. It will never work.
Simplicity trumps complexity. As a spiritual mentor, healer and evolutionary astrologer, I get pretty annoyed with systems or disciplines that are convoluted and end up ensnaring the unwitting into a complex set of spiritual rules and expectations that, frankly, no one can ever live up to.
An example: the “Bodhisattava Curse” is a Sanskrit or Hindu vow that one will not go for the gold of total liberation until all beings are liberated (saved). The other component is the New Cage dogma that says that if you see discord in the world then it’s because you have discord within you. You are now to blame and you gotta fix your karma in order for evolution to proceed. As you can see there isn’t that much difference between the two positions.
Essentially, the voices of spiritual authorities are another part of the Matrix hierarchy that’s only interested in one thing – perpetuating the victim/perpetrator/saviour system that favors a small elite living off the energy of everyone else. Now I’m not calling for a violent overthrow of the ruling classes, but I also see the value of discerning what is happening, then asking your own Spirit “okay, what do you want me to do about this?” This applies to every single aspect of your Life, not just the big issues. You then get to choose whether you follow your ego (karma, conditioned programming) or your innermost authority…your spirit.
Mark’s blog amply illustrated the crisis of consciousness we face today. Prince said it well too; “The battleground is your mind. The prize is your Soul.”
Own your Soul, your body, your heart and your sovereign divine signature. Don’t allow spiritual glamour distract you and keep you apathetic and sidelined. That’s exactly how it’s set up…from religion to politics to social traditions and cultures.
The Sun moves into the sign of Aries later today, the energy of I Am and the warrior. Think about a creating a life, your life, instead of someone else’s. Feel into what a life of spiritual anarchy would look like. It will be a life of impeccable self-responsibility and unlimited opportunities for every feeling, emotion, potential and expression, and organic transformation. Think ecstasy. Live your version and vision…Now.
Have a great Equinox and Full Moon

January 2nd, 2019
Well, the final installment of this series had a to take a backseat to preparations for our Yule feasting and fellowship with family. The rest of 2018 was spent in hibernation from virtually everything. Usually my week between the Solstice and New Year’s is spent visiting with friends, going shopping, or recovering in general from too much food and libations. This time it’s been spent in deep quiet, including naps, old movies, a brief overnighter to a nearby hotel and spa, with some walks and swimming. But frankly, it feels like a big sigh of relief that 2018 will be fading into the rear-view mirror of life soon.
So, what about 2019? What will it bring, and more importantly, how should we prepare for it? I will present a very in-depth 2019 forecast sometime during the first half of January, a throwback to my old “state of the planet” posts, which will cover the current energies and what we can expect for the first six months or so. What I’m going to cover here is more about preparing the ground, so to speak. I know that most of you like to create a vision for the next 12 months and make your intentions. All well and good, and it is quite important to be clear about what it is you are letting go of from 2018, and what you’d like to experience next. However, I will suggest that this next year and the one after will be a bit less about personal achievements as you’ve known it, and more about discovering what your consummate role and mission as a soul is in concert with the Whole for the decade ahead. It’s prepping for the long term, not just the short.
7 Steps for Sanctuary Maintenance
The first thing we will be doing for ourselves is visioning and writing down the intentions and priorities for 2019 that we consciously choose. Part of this is to shift into a higher degree of self-care on all levels. Since the frequency and pace of things will continue to ramp up, it will become increasingly necessary to cultivate good strategies for the proper functioning of our bodies, minds, and souls. In times of lots of change a firm foundation begins with maintenance. I’m calling it “sanctuary maintenance”, which refers to all aspects of our human lives on this planet – physical, environmental, electromagnetic, psychic, mental and emotional.
The primary ingredient is to make a choice to align deeper with the Earth via Nature and our bodies/mind system. The divine planetary intelligence (Sophia) is our gateway to the higher realms of luminosity that is Source. Easy to do this…very easy in fact. But it will take some transformational steps. Real mastery is in how you choose to align with what supports Life, and in removing what isn't healthy for you. Real sovereignty is the empowerment to make the changes you feel are right for you, so pick and choose from the list below what you sense is appropriate for you.
1. Spiritual: Decide to spend more quiet time each day either meditating or deep breathing, and silently intention to expand your understanding of your role here. We, of ourselves, are all deeply connected spiritual beings already, all the time. What gets in the way is the noise and static we create or surround ourselves with. Even 5 minutes here or there, especially when you notice your body is tense or you are clenching (holding) in some way will benefit.
2. Your body sanctuary: Connect with Nature more, either by taking walks, communing with pets, doing more deep breathing, and tuning into what the body really wants in the way of rest, nutrition, or supplements. Grounding and earthing are always a useful technique. I’ve included a document to download for this below. Diet and the food we consume now is very much a part of this. We’ve gone completely vegetarian the last 9 months, and are leaning towards vegan, and the shift in consciousness and body awareness is noticeable. The benefits of little or no meat consumption is very helpful in reducing climate disruption and excess pollution. We’ve even lost weight without dieting!
3. Digital detox (all levels): Do this for longer than a few days! I plan to turn my smartphone into a dumbphone, by removing and/or disabling a load of apps at the first of the year. I’m being extremely serious about reducing social media and internet time down to the bare minimum. Unless you need these tools for your work/career, try to keep your personal screen time to virtually nothing for a few days a week. Notice when your where your addiction kicks in, then gently and lovingly ask yourself to go a few more hours or days without checking your phone apps.
4. Mental sanctuary: The mind and brain don’t have a firewall! Find some sort of protection from EMF and EMR (electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation) for yourself and your devices and use them. We use a product called energyDots from here in the U.K. and they really do work! If you need help assistance with obtaining some, just email me for more information and pricing if you live outside the U.K. I’ve also included a document below about the effects of geomagnetic stress on the human body. Again, grounding to the Earth is one of the best ways to cancel out EMF induced stress in our cellular structures and central nervous systems.
5. Emotional detoxing. Are there certain individuals or social situations that leave you feeling drained or irritated? Well, it may be time to set better boundaries, call a time-out, or disengage entirely. Which is more important; your spiritual and emotional peace of mind or pleasing others? Another source of emotional toxicity is in refusing to feel things, which then build up to a crisis point and manifest in unpredictable ways. Long term EMF exposure and information overload can numb us out and reduce empathetic awareness. EFT (emotional freedom technique) is one method, or just get in touch with the emotion of the moment and experience it lovingly and consciously. Sometimes though, a deep emotional response is due to something the collective consciousness is experiencing, or it can be induced by solar or geomagnetic activity. Stop and ask yourself, “is this mine?”. Employing kinesiology techniques correctly will always provide you with the answer you seek.
6. Psychic Maintenance: This is important now and will only become even more so as we move forwards. Unless you’re living off-grid and aren’t online, then you’ll know what I mean. The collective consciousness matrix is very strong, and maintaining a solid ground and connection with one’s core isn’t at all easy when you’re immersed in the amount of digitized and hyperdimensional information we’re swimming in. Performing personal clearing and spiritual hygiene is essential. Sometimes earthing will do the trick, or have a sea salt or Epsom salts bath with some lavender oil thrown in. Smudging with cedar sage is effective, and with dragon’s blood resin, even more so. Try new techniques too…as older ones don’t evolve with the times. Email me if you require more assistance.
7. Environmental maintenance: Your home is your sanctuary, so tend to it. Do you have plants in it? Do you keep it clean and well-organized? Does it feel fully like “your” space, your home? If not, populate it with art or icons that reflects and invokes the type of emotional, physical, psychic, mental and spiritual feeling you want in yourself. Recommend you avoid CFL or LED light bulbs too! Compact fluorescent bulbs off-gas mercury and other toxins as they age. LED’s are notoriously bad for melatonin hormone production, as the emphasis on blue spectrum light affects the pineal gland in the brain (which is our 3rd Eye in traditional mysticism and is also find in our cerebrospinal fluid).
I’m offering this information here because for establishing a stronger spiritual connection within and with the natural forces in the world is essential in order to become attuned to the actual truth about what is happening, even if those truths are uncomfortable or disconcerting. Better a painful truth, then continuing to believe in sweet-sounding lies.
Artificial-everything and fraud is rampant, and simulations are becoming so pervasive as to convince us that this IS the new reality we want. Quite simply, it isn’t. Technology, or the addiction to it, is distancing us further from our primary spiritual and biological orientations, and it creates trauma bonding to things rather than healthy, thriving connections to organic Life in all its beautiful diversity. Becoming more sensitive to our bodies, our deeper needs, other people, animals, plants, stones, and the rhythms of Nature creates health on all levels and ensures our mutual survival.
Finally, I highly recommend trying out the following exercise sometime before January 11th. Simply get quiet and sit in meditation for a few minutes. Have a pen and paper handy. Breathe deeply. Once you’re relaxed, start with reviewing 2018. Think about the plusses and minuses you experienced. What was your biggest joy? What was your hardest challenge, and what was your biggest learning? After a few minutes, open your eyes and write these down. I made a page with “+” on one side and minus sign the other and list these things in order of importance from the top-down.
Next, get back into the silence again…this time focusing on the present moment. How do you feel in yourself? Check your emotional-mental temperature. Can you feel your Heart and Soul, and if not, why? What would you like to change in how you feel, and what can your Soul give you to do that? Finally, what do you need or want to let go of from 2018 and the years leading up to it? When you’re done, open your eyes and write that all down.
Now we come to 2019. Go into the silence once more. Now see yourself on January 1st, 2020. Looking back over 2019, what are the highlights of the year? What did you overcome or accomplish? Where did you really shine? How did it feel? Free up your feelings and imagination to imagine that life you lived during this year as if it’s already happened! Now, finally, what singular thing that you received from your future self that helped you to experience the wonders of your life in 2019? After a few more minutes, open your eyes and write all of what you saw and felt down.
There, that is your Plan for 2019…in a nutshell.

If you don’t slow down, you may just miss out on the best that Life has to offer.

(Part 1 of 3 parts)
by Isaac George
December 11th, 2018
“Slow down, you move to fast. You’ve got to make the moment last.” – Simon & Garfunkel
“If we valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – JRR Tolkien
“Look at Nature! All Nature loafs, while Man alone works for a living.” – Morton Tolboll
When we really tune into our experience of this world right now, and think back one, three, or even 10 years ago, would you say you are more content and satisfied, or less? Does everything make more sense to you, or less? Most importantly, do you have more time to spend enjoying the things that Life offers, or less? Even though everything is abstractly in the “now”, having enough time is, ironically, our most precious resource.
As you reflect on your own answers, I hope it turns out that you are more content, feel like more things are clearer to you, and that you are enjoying a load of time to be with your family, friends, and favorite pursuits. Congratulations, for you are part of a rare and possibly shrinking percentile of the population. If you are not experiencing this expanded state of life, then perhaps you’ll resonate with my call for the Slow Life.
My own perceptions about why it is that there is so much pressure, stress and anxiousness is as multidimensional as the causes themselves. Just some of the current causes are as follows:
Many people in our developed information-based societies are dancing as fast as possible to maintain their standard of living. A good deal more are staying just ahead of losing their livelihood, their income, or their home. Debt and debt service are at record highs. A good many sacrifice warmth and comfort just to be able to put food on the table for themselves and their families. The world is too busy trying to stave off collapse to notice that it’s eating up a massive amount of their attention, resources, and most importantly, time.
Since you’re reading this, I can safely assume that you are deeply interested in spirituality, meditation, transformation, positive perspectives and creating a better world for yourself and everyone else too. Choosing peace, and living a peaceful life is also one of your priorities. However, the world is far from being a peaceful place…currently anyway. Struggle, anxiety, depression and adrenal fatigue are a very real experience for many. Desperation and starvation are something that too many children and their parents are enduring in places like Syria and Yemen. We’d all like to do something more, to contribute more, to help more, but we ourselves are often also just too busy with our dreams, our careers, and the needs of others close to us to be able to do much more than we are already doing.
If everything in your life is fantastic, free, easy and full of joy, then I congratulate you heartily! But if you’re feeling doubt or fear what the future may hold or are even just too tired to care much at all, then I’d like to invite you to really take a long look at your world, your experience and begin to question the stories of how the world works. It is vitally important to understand where we are first, before creating any possible solutions.
In order to do this, you’re going to have to create a slower life. You can’t see or hear anything properly if it’s whizzing by too quickly! Start by carving out 10-15 minutes a day…to do nothing that relates to your work or list of responsibilities. I don’t even want to suggest to you that you meditate, but you could “do” that!
Get into a quieter space. Bedroom? Close the door, turn off the phone. You could pick something that you enjoy doing…thoroughly, like sewing, or cooking, or reading. Better yet, just sit. Eyes open or eyes closed. Sit…quietly. Listen to your breath, your heart. Watch your mind churn…and keep following your own breath. Focus on a single object in front of you if that helps…and really gaze at it effortlessly.
If you find you’re getting annoyed with nothing to do, or with abject silence, then welcome to the club. You’re on the verge of detecting where we are constantly up against a program of distraction from what really matters, which is connection to Source, your own soul and body well-being. Source, God, Goddess, Love, or whatever name you choose to call it, is the Infinite Divine wellspring of everything there is, and everything that isn’t. You didn’t create yourself, and you are alive and breathing through the agency of this Source, and you cannot alter that fact. Pretty humbling stuff, if you ask me. Consciousness and awakening are the ultimate impulse of the Life-Love energy that pulses throughout all that is. Can you just rest in that presence for even 10 minutes? Give it a try. Oh, and you don’t need any intermediary for this…no angels, no masters, no guides. Just you and You. No problem!
After this little experiment, write down what you experienced and what you didn’t experience. It’s a merely a reflective exercise, without a right or wrong to it. Ideally, it can bring you into a place of real pleasurable sensations…a sense of calmness and okay-ness. At least that’s the idea and ideal.
Since we are in the season of giving, I’d suggest that one of the big things you can begin to express with whatever you come away with from these slow life moments is compassion. To give kindness and compassion to whomever you encounter over the last few weeks of 2018 will have great effect. It’s an equalizer, and the one something that we all are needing more of is love and a sense of belonging…the power of communing and community. The best currency, and in my opinion only currency is Love. If you give a donation, let it be wrapped in the felt presence of deliberate and premeditated love. Slow down, and ask the homeless person if they are okay, or if you make the time, ask them to share a bit about themselves. You may get quite an illuminating education and blessing in the process. The money part isn’t the main gift. It’s the gift of time you give to another…a space that is priceless when so many just rush on by, averting their eyes, and caught up in their personal troubles and drama.
Back in a few days with the next segment on The Slow Life. The astrology of Chiron now direct in Pisces is priming us for major healing opportunities on many levels, so relax into the possibilities of what that might engender for yourself.
