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.

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.
