Negative people are our best teachers. We can be thankful for them, because it’s easy to respond to a nice, smiling person with the same sort of positive energy, but our real spiritual “muscles” are cultivated when we interact with lower vibrational folks, because they challenge us to be more aware and not on auto pilot. With them, it quickly becomes an ego battle, unless we choose to be totally present, and heart-centered, so we might lift the entire interaction up to a higher frequency.Read More
It seems quite perfect that the Leo New moon comes in so very close to the end of the Leo sun’s actual reign (Virgo season starts on the 23rd) giving us the waxing phase of the moon with the waning phase of the sun cycle to elaborate and illuminate the sacrifices ready to be made in our lives.
Sacrifice sounds scary. It’s usually not fun to have to give anything up, whether it’s caffeine, a lover or a life. But every tradition I am familiar with teaches us that at some point, there is nothing left to do but let go, particularly if we want to move forward. This practice of surrender to the higher source is beyond terrifying to the ego, but extremely liberating for the soul.Read More
Matter is energy, space is energy, everything is energy. Spiritual gurus have been teaching this for millennia, and only more recently has science finally caught up with the idea through quantum physics. If you meditate deeply enough, you can feel into the energy that is animating you. It’s a subtle vibration that reverberates through every part of the Universe.Read More
There is a mystery to Venus and to Aquarius. Something so old and ancient and part of a consciousness we humans have somehow disconnected from. Perhaps, this weekend, under the light of the beautiful blue moon, with the energetic pull down into the lower worlds, we can drop into some form of the truth. As they say, the truth will set you free. So, ask. Ask your heart, the moon, the stars, the trees and the sea. Ask the animals that peek out under the luminous lunar gaze. Ask your guides and guardians. Ask your inner eye. Ask where you are not in your truth and where you are not free. What are you afraid to surrender on your journey through the night? What do you cling to and does it serve you? What would life look like if you were really and truly free?Read More
Your 3rd eye is located in the middle of your brow. It relates to your intuitive abilities and your connection to your Higher Self and spiritual guides. It’s color is indigo, which is why children who are born with strong spiritual connections and psychic talents are often referred to as “indigo children.” This chakra is the highest feminine center, so it carries a lot of wisdom and has some great lessons to teach you.Read More
The throat chakra is about your communication. It invites you to take everything you say up to the next level of impeccability. It is the highest masculine chakra, so it harmonizes with the other masculine chakras, the root and solar plexus.Read More
I am not saying we have to sit around and feel like crap all the time. I am saying that in honor of the new moon we allow the space to feel and feel big together. We set a sacred space, create a safe container, where we can allow the feelings to rise, and allow them to fall. We allow ourselves to speak or write our pain, and to witness, with a wide open heart, the pain of another, without the Cancerian tendency to “fix” it or mute it. We allow ourselves to open to the pain of the world, not just in our little bubble.Read More
