At Halloween, the veils that separate us from the spirit realm are always the thinnest, so it's a great time to make a deeper connection with your guides, spiritual families, and galactic families. We will feel the love and support shining on us from the ascended planets and planetary beings, as Pleidian and Sirian Star systems hold safe space for us. Many of us will feel this intensity and SEE the love for the first time. Not to mention, more colorful love orbs will appear on Earth, and peculiar sparkles and lights in our skies. Because of their beauty and their radiance of well-being, these appearances will be identified and acknowledged as our alien friends and allies by many. This month, the full moon is a couple days before Halloween, and I'm hearing that the two energies together will bring miracles for many of us--opening up doorways that have been shut for quite sometime, manifesting new opportunities, making it much easier to move forward in your life, removing obsta cles, or simply bringing you a happy surprise!
Tap into the Magick of the season. Halloween or Samhain is the pagan holiday celebrated to help us tie up loose ends, finish incomplete projects, resolve issues and reconcile with those who we've been in conflict with. It is the end of the pagan year, and all of this must be cleared up so we can start fresh. I'd agree this holiday is in timing with the energetics in the world. Honor and give thanks to those who have passed, and those who you've loved and lost. Reflect on how they have contributed to your life in a positive way (even if it didn't always feel positive), for they have benefitted you even if their deeds caused you suffering. There is much learning here. And most of all, honor your own personal deaths. Look at how far you've come in your own spiritual growth and evolution. As we kick off mercury retrograde again around the 6th of Nov, it's a good idea to begin reviewing the course of our lives up until this point, so we may be motivated to step up to the plate, st eer our ship in the path of our chosen destiny, and be better able to change the navigation of our course as needed along the way.
From 11-11 through the penumbral lunar eclipse on Nov. 28th this year, a portal will be opened, giving us the opportunity to jump timelines as a collective, greatly changing the physical reality we all share for the better, including the magnetics. Earth has been one step ahead of us, patiently awaiting our move as a collective so she can make her last shift to stand fully in her new dimension. Of course she will go on shifting, but this is a big one for her, as it is for us. At the end of Nov. and into December, another new cycle begins, and we have another chance to make a huge shift in our collective consciousness. The good news is, regardless of whether we make these big leaps collectively (which is still unknown at this time since we are creating it as we go along), we will still have the chance to transform every step of the way, as the energetics/magnetics in our new world change and events unfold throughout the end of 2012 and into 2013. I see this as a series of smal l events that, one by one, will begin to wake us up. Even though it may feel like life is happening so quickly and without our control, unconsciously we all make decisions about how much we shift personally (even if its just a teeny-tiny bit), which affects the collective, in EACH MOMENT.
Back to this month, because we have to start where we are...It's a great time to work with our dreams, and because of the thinning of the veils, the profoundly mysterious depths of our unconscious, which affect our unknown future. We have lots of clearing and healing to do in these areas, and many of us are remembering and moving through our long forgotten life experiences and suppressed emotional material while we are at rest. If you've been experiencing nightmares, flashbacks of traumatic life history, or been feeling overwhelmed by the pull or pressure to manifest your soul's purpose NOW, my dreamwork class at the Halloween Retreat in Ojai on the 31st can help bring healing, resolution, and soul integration. We are becoming more whole as our soul fragments come back to us, so it's essential that we find supportive therapies that can help us assimilate these with grace.
In this time of the unknown, we might experience anxiety for a variety of reasons. I know in my own life, being psychic has allowed me to sense the changes coming, which is mostly a positive thing. But sometimes it's easier to just know one step at a time, avoiding the overwhelm of even the most heartfelt, grandest goals and dreams. Our self-doubt and fear come up when we get really close to experiencing that which we've been waiting for, just outside of our comfort zone. We can calm this part of us, and shift the doubt into confidence when we understand it's just our biological alarms going off--our caveman genes that want us to avoid exploring the outside, and remain in the cave we know. Instead, align yourself with your soul's calling, which is to embrace change. As I can certainly relate to, even our physical bodies are changing as we integrate the higher frequencies, and as they do, it feels different to be in this normally, very dense physical form. As we lighten up, we need to give ourselves time to adjust to this new feeling, which will help release any uneasiness that goes along with it. As we all embrace change on many level(s) of our lives, partnerships may split up and people may go their separate ways. We must release those outdated attachments and dynamics in even our closest, most treasured, earth family relationships. This doesn't mean that we have to let go of the relationships, but simply shift the unhealthy roles we usually play.
I know I sound like a broken record, but we can heal like never before right now. We can move through our heavy karma, emotional baggage, deepest core wounding, especially in the department of relationships, during this month and into November. We will feel the paradoxical pull of opposites--the time of Venus and all that is associated with beauty, bounty, love, and abundance, and the time of Pluto, righteous indignation/intolerance and all that is associated with the spirit of conflict, willpower, and rebelling to bring change. The latter is related to the downfall of religious dogma, and the exposure of hidden agendas of government, including the secret agencies of government and how this corruption has controlled humanity--economically, environmentally, and spiritually. Energetically it looks like we are all waking up from a trance-like state and will now regain or own self-control and power. We have to remember to hold both states of consciousness above, Venus and Pluto, and not lean too heavily into one area. Both are needed to help us shift collectively. It is part of mastering duality consciousness. And remember, it may not look pretty or feel pleasant while it's happening, but gaze beyond the illusions and see what's in store for us as we move through this process of change. Like having knee surgery, it can be painful and exhausting both during the surgery and in the recovery, but our strength, patience, and perseverance help us move through this stage (and still notice the joy and gratitude that is always available to us). When we finish our recovery, we have a new knee, one that is pain-free, releases our limitations and expands our potentials, and supports us in ways our old one never could.
Dreaming Your Own Reality Into Being
Before I start this month's Energy Activation, I want to mention that starting early next year, I will only be offering the first section of the newsletter for FREE. More details and descriptions of the energetic changes and the shift in consciousness on Earth, including what we can do to stay in balance and navigate our lives during these times, as well as the Energy Activations, will be included in a separate newsletter called "Updates of The Shift" for $10/month or $100/year. You will have the option of buying it on an "as needed" basis for $12. More to come later...
These Energy Activations will occur to the degree your soul chooses if you intend it. The theme of this section is dreaming your own reality into being. The following is a Halloween Story that you will create as you go along. As you read it, you will receive activations that help you shift, release, and move forward in your life. As you choose what you want to happen in this holiday tale, you actively change the reality of your own existence for the better, and to the degree that you're ready for. When you finish each section, do not jump ahead to see what will happen or skip to the ending. Like a journey, it's the process that matters.
A HALLOWEEN RECONCILIATION
Two sisters, Chandra and Oceania, got together after many years of separation. It was Halloween, their favorite time of year, and they decided that after not speaking to each other all this time, it would be a nostalgic reunion to plan their gathering on this holiday. After meeting and embracing, catching up over dinner, with tears shed and much heartfelt expression and appreciation for their re-connection, Chandra and Oceania decided to perform an opening ritual together in honor of their Wiccan roots. It was afterall, Halloween night.
The Full moon rose well before dusk. Chandra and Oceania stepped outside and walked across Chandra's six acre lot. She lived in a rural area far from the mid-western city where Oceania and her grew up. It was quiet and beautiful. At this hour, they could hear the humming of crickets and smell the floral scent of lavender and roses as a gentle breeze blew in. Chandra kept flower and food gardens. Straight rows of corn stood silently like statues before them as they sat under an Autumn Blaze Maple Tree with striking flame colored fall leaves. Chandra carefully placed the earthenware bowl before them and lit some frankincense incense. Frankincense is great to burn this time of year, especially in helping to clear any unwanted energies/dynamics/emotions from the past.
The two women took in the fragrant aroma and waited. Chandra led, opening up the four directions and calling forth the Gods and Goddesses. As they connected to the Earth and the spirit world, welcoming the ancestors and all those unseens who wished to partake in the ceremony, Oceania became overwhelmed with emotion. She instantly felt how the estrangement had caused her great pain, confusion, and chaos. Her emotions rumbled to the surface and she felt great inner turmoil. Oceania knew that they both needed to come to terms with what had happened between them, why they stopped speaking to each other in the first place. Oceania opened her mouth and what came out next shocked both of them. (You fill in the next section of this story--in your mind's eye, on paper, through your imagination or feeling it into being. Remember the story is really not about Chandra or Oceania but your own life on some level. Don't look ahead).
In what seemed like a moment later, Oceania was looking around her, uncertain about what had just occurred. Chandra was nowhere in sight. The flower gardens were to the left of where they were sitting, and the food--lettuce, cabbage, broccoli and dried up tomato and zucchini plants were to her right. See could see past them, and Chandra was not there. The only other place she could be was in the cornfield. Oceania harnessed what courage she could, and walked off into the corn with trepidation. An owl's call broke the silence in the distance. Oceania felt so alone. She picked up her pace and quickly reached the middle of the giant cornfield maze. Her heartbeat raced and pounded in her chest, and she felt tension spread throughout her body as panic set in. Attempting to calm herself, she repeated reassuring thoughts over and over out loud. "She must be here somewhere. It's the only place she could be." But as soon as the words were out of her mouth, a lightbulb when off inside her mind. "Oh, maybe she went back inside the house?"
Feeling immediate relief and silliness for not thinking of it earlier, Oceania turned to leave the cornfield. And then the unimaginable happened. Even though she simply changed direction, heading towards the way she had entered, Oceania was not finding her way back to the Maple tree that was just a few feet from the entrance to the corn. In fact, she could not even see it from the distance. The cornfield was less than an acre in size. It just didn't make sense that she could not find where she entered it. Even though she took a small path in the middle of the field, Oceania tried other paths in other rows, perhaps finding a quicker route out. She was practically running now and trying to ignore what she could just barely make out in the background...the soft, rhythmic vibration of what could be nothing other than--footsteps. They sounded like they were far off in the distance, and to the left of where she was. Hoping that it was Chandra, but sensing it was not, Oceania yelled out her name anyway, "Chandra, is that you?" The footsteps got louder and now she heard more than one pair. Obviously not Chandra. Who were these people? Oceania gasped as she heard the howl of a coyote in the distance. A shadow caught her eye, and she looked to her left through a break in the corn rows. Beyond Chandra's property and near the edge of towering evergreen trees was not one, but several coyotes, circled up and trotting towards the cornfield. For a moment she felt reassured that the steps weren't something ELSE in the cornfield, yet she didn't know yet, if she was safe. And she still hadn't found her way out of here. Taking a deep breath, Oceania pulled the small piece of jewelry that Chandra had given her years ago, a token of their sisterhood, from her pocket. She looked to her left and saw the coyotes were just a few feet away from where she now stood, yipping as they got closer. (Fill in the next section of this story according to your unfolding imagination and visualization process. Write it down if it helps. Don't look ahead.)
When Oceania awoke, she found herself on Chandra's living room couch. She quickly sat up. "Chandra!" She yelled, still frantic.
The warm, tender voice of the sister she had always loved welcomed her. Chandra walked into the living room with a cup of tea. Oceania graciously accepted the tea, and as she peered up at Chandra over the cup, she saw the light and felt the stability that had always guided and grounded her throughout her early life. She remembered all the change and chaos Chandra went through just before their separation. Compassion washed over her and she finally understood. And all that mattered now was that they were reunited, both of their lives now more in balance and going as well as could be. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. Both women jumped at the unexpected noise. Chandra hadn't invited anyone. Hesitating for a moment, she got to her feet and peeked through the peephole. She saw the corner of a navy blue scarf on the other side. Instantly excited, she fumbled with the lock and opened the door. Chandra and Oceania's sister, Star entered. Oceania jumped to her feet and the thre e of them embraced. This was definitely a surprise! During the estrangement, Chandra and Oceania had maintained contact with Star by phone. Neither of them had a chance to see her in person in many years because she lived all the way across the country, in New York. The three sisters, all unique in personality and looks--Chandra the tall brunette, Oceania the blonde petite, and Star, a redhead of average height and build, stood together, taking each other in. Star, the feisty, daring, world traveler, said she had a gift for both of them. Chandra and Oceania stared at each other in contemplation. (You guessed it, fill in the next section of the story. You make it up...how do you want it to go or not go?)
As Oceania got ready for bed in the guest room of Chandra's house, she reflected back on her life thus far. Perhaps Star had always been the bridge that helped Chandra and Oceania's polar-opposite personalities and lifestyles come together. Chandra was a gregarious school teacher. Oceania, a soft-spoken, introverted writer. And yet they were a perfect match--complementary as sisters, confidantes, and soul family. Oceania again pulled the jewels from her pocket that were a gift from Chandra and felt satisfaction as she gazed upon Star's gift in the corner of the room. They fit together like pieces of a puzzle. It was complete. And just then, a black cat appeared in the window, one last momento of this Halloween night. Oceania thought of her beloved childhood cat, Blackberry, and how he had passed away when she was just ten years old, leaving her bereft with grief. She had no idea who's cat this was, but as she purred in the window, the sound haunted her. It sounded so much lik e Blackberry.
That night she dreamt that she walked to the window where the black cat had stood and picked up a diamond collar--Blackberry's collar. In disbelief, she pinched herself but didn't wake up. Then she heard a voice talk to her of the future, explaining the meaning behind Chandra's jewels and Star's gift, and she turned to see a familiar friend who said...(and now you pick the ending! Yes, you can do this. Here you go, creating your own reality.)
Did you notice the metaphor of the three sisters--Chandra (which means moon), Star, and Ocean? This uniting of sisters in the story represents the uniting of all aspects of our universe/galaxy, and the secret balance and bond of the Moon, Earth, and Stars. Each celestial body or aspect affects the outcome of another. As you participated in the creation of your own reality, so you did in that of the world.
