The Power of Being an Earth Empath – Dr. Judith Orloff

The Power of Being an Earth Empath

I’m a psychiatrist and also an empath. An empath is someone who is highly sensitive and tends to absorb the emotional and physical energy of other people into their own bodies. Empaths also have an intimate communion with nature, including with the Earth, plants, and animals.

The positive side is that we can deeply feel all that is positive, wholesome, and healthy in others, and the world.

The downside is that empaths become exhausted, anxious, and burned out from sensory overload.

Many of my empath patients come to me with these symptoms but were never diagnosed properly by conventional physicians—rather they were seen as simply having panic disorder, depression, or anxiety, and thus given medications. If you identify as an empath, the secret to nurturing your intuitive connection to all living things, is to develop centering and protection strategies such as meditation, setting clear boundaries, creating adequate alone time to refuel and many other strategies I present in The Empath’s Survival Guide. Then empaths can revel in the joy of their sensitivities.

Earth Empaths

Earth empaths are a special type of empath who is keenly attuned to the natural world and all of the Earth’s changes. The beauty of a waterfall can exhilarate and energize these empaths, whereas the toxicity of air pollutants can make them feel sick, exhausted, or depressed. How do you know if you are an earth empath? You are highly sensitive to intuiting the Earth’s changes in your body. Sensually and energetically, you can feel the power of a thunderstorm, the loveliness of the moon, the warmth of the sun on your shoulders. What happens to the Earth is intimately connected to your body. The beauty and health of the earth nourishes and sustains you. The ocean and tides affect everyone, but especially you. The moon and the tide regulate menstrual cycles in women and sleep-wake cycles for both genders. You are sensitive to weather changes and the amount of daylight. Earth empaths may experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), becoming depressed in the winter when the days are shorter.

The earth, its elements, and the universe feel like family. The moon and stars have always been my companions. Since childhood, I’ve looked up at the heavens and felt that my true home was there. (One patient told me that she prefers stargazing as her “night life” instead of bars and clubs.) But, interestingly, I’ve found that empaths, like myself, who have a hard time adjusting to being on this planet, need to connect to the earth’s energy so that we can more fully inhabit our bodies. Learning how to do this (and not fighting it) is part of our healing.

The Earth loves you. You can feel it. If you’re an earth empath, that’s why you get so hurt, anxious or have health problems when she is harmed or destroyed. Your body is intimately connected to the Earth. You experience her changes as if they were happening to you. When the Earth is happy, you are happy. When the Earth is in pain, you are too.

Earth empaths may have premonitions about natural disasters or feel them intensely in their bodies as they are occurring. One patient told me. “I frequently wake up just prior to earthquakes. Then boom, it hits.” Another said, “Before earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, my body begins to shake. I feel ‘off,’ not on solid ground.” Another told me, “During the last tsunami, I awoke from a deep sleep in a state of agitation and dread.” An empathic friend said, “I felt like I was hemorrhaging,” as a response to a catastrophic oil spill. Similarly, try to be aware of how your body reacts during dramatic earth changes. Then you can put your feelings in context and practice more self-care when they occur.

As an Earth empath, you may also be sensitive to solar flares. These magnetic storms on the sun affect the magnetic fields around the earth and our bodies. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, and tornados appear to occur after intense solar activity. During these periods, you may experience headaches, mood swings, anxiety, or heart palpations. Studies have shown an association between solar flares and increased depression, anxiety, suicides, and episodes of bipolar disorder. Revolutions, riots, and unrest across the globe are associated with solar flares. Remember, the sun is responsible for life on earth. When it goes through changes, we feel it 93 million miles away. This experience is amplified for empaths.

To stay vibrant, you want to frequently connect with the Earth. Spend time in forests, by the ocean, or in the mountains where you can commune with the elements and feel at home. To deepen your bond with the Earth, eat clean, healthy, organic foods (even better, grow them yourself). A junk food diet separates you from the Earth because you’re not ingesting her energy. Regularly practice Earthing: lie flat on the earth to soak up her positivity and strength. Wade or swim in lakes, rivers, or the ocean. Gaze at the stars. Walk barefoot on the grass.

To intentionally communicate with the Earth, you can tune into her by asking, “What do you feel?” Then be open to any intuitions that come. Or you can use the Earth as an oracle, directly asking her questions about yourself or others. She will answer you though your intuition. Then follow her guidance.

In Native traditions, earth medicine represents the healing that nature imparts. Mother Earth is to be revered and cared for. As empaths, you can practice earth medicine by doing whatever you can to treasure our precious mother planet. This is part of your purpose, and a way for you to feel happy, healthy, and whole.

Dryads, Trees & the Fifth Element | Good Witches Homestead

 

Dryads, Trees & the Fifth Element | Good Witches Homestead

The dryad is the spirit of the tree, its essential pattern. It is a living being linked to the tree and growing with it, but at the same time, it is a trans-temporal and trans-spacial creature, living in the Astral dimension as much as in the mundane world. When a branch falls off a tree or is pruned, the dryad spirit is still in the wood. It is not really correct to speak of “parts” of a spirit, but one might consider the spirit of the wand to be part of the tree’s consciousness.

Some writers suggest that trees withdraw their life from a branch when they sense it is going to be cut and there is doubtless something to such observations. Nevertheless, in my experience, the spirit always remains to some degree and can be awoken by enchantment when the branch is crafted into a wand.

Now, of course, orthodox mundane botany does not usually accord consciousness to trees. In the Alferic tradition and in most schools of Druidry, trees are considered to have spirit, mind, and consciousness, as well as will and emotions. Indeed, in my experience, trees have a larger proportion of emotion than intellect in their souls. They do not ratiocinate the way we do, but they do ponder and brood.

As Prof. Tolkien so rightly observed in Lord of the Rings, many trees today are sleepy. If the druid touches them and makes contact with their dryad spirit, they sometimes at first seem sluggish and hard to reach. Other trees respond immediately to such attention with the same kind of reaction many of us would have if suddenly touched by the mind of another being.

Still, it is misleading to anthropomorphize dryads. They share many of the spiritual qualities with us, but they do not think or live like human beings. In their present incarnation, trees are fixed and immobile. A great deal of their attention is directed into the ground through their roots and outward into the air through their branches and leaves. They do move, of course, in the process of growth and in harmony with the winds, rain, and sunlight. Deciduous trees drop their leaves and grow new ones, many drop seeds or flowers.

So there is a great deal of activity in trees but it is the sort that, in humans, remains largely unconscious. We too produce seeds and eggs, grow hair and nails and new skin, and throughout childhood, our whole body is growing. Even in adulthood, the body changes shape.

But trees have very different bodies and their spirits are diffused throughout their bodies without the distracting narrow focus of a brain steeped in language. Thus trees, unlike humans, have never suffered from the dichotomy of mind and body. If their consciousness dwells on different parts of their being, it is on the roots, the trunk, and the branches. The leaves are the most sensitive organs of trees, but the bark is also very sensitive, flowing with tree-blood underneath, just like skin.

Although many of the woods are traditionally associated with one of the four classical elements (Air, Fire, Water, Earth), dryads are spirits that do not fall simply into one of these elements. Rather, they embody the fifth element recognized in the Taoist system: Wood. They are representative of all of the four elements combined into a fifth that is a living organism.

Trees are the pinnacle of the plant kingdom, as humans are often imagined to be the pinnacle of the animal kingdom, filled with nobility, grandeur, often great age, and wisdom that comes from a long life in one place. We are indebted to them in ways that are often incompletely realized: in the gift of oxygen, wood, and paper trees have made human civilization possible. They are, thus, mystically speaking, the midwives of all intelligent life and human creativity. The Quintessence is often described as Spirit, but it is enlightening to consider this “Fifth Element” as Wood for the trees point upwards to the sun, stars, and heavens, to the invisible Spirit, which is not an “element” at all, but the essence that underlies all manifestation.

The Magical Properties of Trees….

The Celtic Oghams and druid traditions identify certain properties with certain sacred trees. The oghams of old are rather enigmatic, to say the least. In Gaelic “ogham” is pronounced oh-um while in Elvish the word is spelled ogam and pronounced og-am, with a short “o.” The Irish oghams seem to have originated as a counting system and the numerical values later given phonetic values, and then poetic ones as part of a complex mnemonic system used by the bards in the Middle Ages. In Elvish the word itself might be translated as correspondences; that is, the use of runes to symbolize a complex of associations and archetypes.

The Elvish Rianar (or “runes”) which are in a form similar to Norse Futhark, are more than just letters and their use as symbols of different trees is highly significant to their use. Ogam, in Elvish, might also be translated as “mysteries.” The Irish ogham reconstructed by the poet Robert Graves in his book The White Goddess has been adopted by many modern druid orders. While some of these properties or characters accords with the Alferic Ogam, there are also differences. In the latter system, each wood is linked to a rune which symbolizes the complex of magical correspondences embracing not only wood, but also stone, bird, animal, color, and time.

I have included here only those types of wood that are currently available for wand making. Some are more plentiful than others. the exotics are available only in milled stock but the others are mostly taken from natural branches. I have here indicated their primary Elemental association, connections to the Mellarin (the Mighty Ones), and correspondences through the elvish ogam system to the solar calendar and principal festivals. These are according to the Elvish traditions, but I have also included associations with divinities from other pantheons and folklore from other sources.

Some magical applications are listed for each wood, but it should not be thought that any wand is limited to particular types of magic. Rather, I intend to indicate those powers that are especially suited for each respective wood and best fit the common character of a species. At the end of each entry are also included links to other web pages containing articles on each respective tree.

Tania Marie: Spring Equinox Portal of Possibilities

Spring Equinox Portal of Possibilities

Peace and harmony to you on this beautiful Spring Equinox portal. Where ever you are I hope you can take some time to tune in and anchor in your own “change of seasons” with some reflection on where you are on your journey, envisioning what you would like to be creating as your path continues to unfold, and honing in on what actions you can take to put it all into renewing motion. I was just thinking about the last few years and where I was on Spring Equinox…last year in the Grand Canyon on our Magick Bus adventure, the year before on the island of Amantani in Lake Titicaca for our sacred journey to Peru I organized, and the year before hosting the Reiki Renewal Retreat in Laguna Beach, CA. And now, sitting above Lake Tahoe in our treehouse in Nevada engaging in what I feel to be my life’s work come full circle.

My how things shift and yesterday and this morning I’ve been reflecting on where I’m headed and how much has changed to get to this more anchored place I feel to be in with solid direction and fullest embodiment of what’s in my heart.

glacier national park.jpg

This photo is from last year’s RV adventure in the Magick Bus while exploring my favorite Glacier National Park. I love the hint of double rainbow that shows up in the clouds above and the hawk flying in the blue area of the sky that wanted to be captured in this image too.

This photo not only embodies the essence of today to me, but anchors in the visions I’m supporting from the guidance channeling through and my own intentions and dream visions unfolding.

I hope it ignites a spark of inspiration for you too.

Renewal is yours if you are willing to lovingly close doors, take action, and open to receiving new portals of experience because you’re worth it as an embodiment of All That Is.

Everything to me right now feels like we’re planting our own spirit gardens and it’s incredibly liberating and enjoyable to choose the seeds we want to see blossom and learn what each needs to be cultivated and nurtured into fruition. All the while knowing you are Spirit in motion of being and everything you do is a merging of this.

And if you don’t yet know what you want to be growing in your garden, this is a wonderful and revealing time to receive revelations and inspiration that uncover the seeds of your spirit’s truest calling.

Words that come to mind are surrender, balance, harmony, integrity, trust, and renewal.

I shared this message, below, before around the same time of year, but it still feels to be the theme and so I’ll reshare it again.

Things you might ask yourself in line with the words above are:

In what areas of your life can you surrender and stop trying to do and control it all? What can you let go of to make room for allowing and receiving?

How can you maintain your equilibrium, and remain balanced? Are you fortifying your source of energy and learning to shield yourself from all externals that knock you off your axis?

Are you being consistent with the integrity of your life and making it a priority as to your vibrational resonance you embody? Where might you release things, people, and situations that aren’t reflecting the same integrity? Are you ready to invite higher discernment into your life with the choices you make? Are you living authentically in expression of your inner truth and essence or is false ego running the show creating illusions and lack of self love and self worth?

Do you operate solely in your head and forego the knowing in your heart? Are you willing to cultivate more trust in that gut feeling, or are you more happy allowing all of the “stuff” out there to determine the course of your life? Is fear your friend or enemy?

Can you commit to letting go of the old with love, gratitude, and compassionate understanding for the way things have been, but no longer need to be? What are you willing to release in order to have the new experiences you want? Do you talk about things rather than do them?

It all boils down to how seriously you are willing to make different choices and back them up with action. The first step is the most challenging, but it all gets easier from there.

We are just like energetic coils, spiraling through the cycles of our life and able to “spring” back and regenerate ourselves.

You are more resilient than you think.

What you believe and the actions you take in support of those beliefs are shaping your experience and either bucking the natural harmony of your coiled embodiment or flowing gracefully with that spiraling essence.

Asking questions right now feels even more potent than simply sharing inspirational words, as it engages you to partner more in the empowerment you seek.

If you are willing to honestly answer the hard questions, then the next question is, are you willing to take the actions in support of helping you toward different answers you perhaps may seek to experience?

Only you can do the work.

Only you can make the changes….embrace new perspectives…and realize more expansive potentials.

I can’t do it for you and neither can anyone else.

We can only help guide you back to you, if, and only if you are ready to go there.

There is no wrong. There’s only choice and free will.

There is no timing to meet except your own soul’s gauge.

To reclaim your sovereignty you’ll need to reclaim it.

How that looks is up to you.

If you feel you’ve lost your way, yourself, your innocence….you can always choose a different spiral of experience. True, it may take time and it may not be easy, but neither of those are reason to turn a back on yourself for.

Nature has many mirrors for us of challenge and resiliency, of symbolic death and renewal…and yet it goes on as that is the nature of its reality that knows what it is here to do and doesn’t judge it against anything else.

The nature of your reality is that you, too, are powerful beyond measure, are beautiful in all of your seasons of inevitable change, and no matter the roads your journey takes you, you are and always have been an embodied miracle.

The truth of it is, there is no magick.

Magick is simply when you are surrendering to your essence.

Magick is when you express your creative piece of life force energy moving through you.

Magick is simply you being you.

And when you are embodying your essence expression and trusting in the knowing of that beyond all else, everything you touch is a process of alchemy creating alignment, abundance, and grace.

That’s the “magick”. It’s a natural process.

When you aren’t being natural you don’t experience this.

It’s that simple.

From being in the core essence of you, you are then able to branch out into new things from a stable, solid, and sustainable energy source that isn’t being depleted by having to manage frustration, inner torment, or having to support inauthentic, contrived, conditioned, or illusory ideas of you, what you think you should be doing, or how you think you need to look to others.

For myself, I have come to a place of great clarity through letting go of personal stagnation I was feeling, although to the outside world would not have been detected.

This has resulted in cultivating and nurturing those key themes I mentioned at start: surrender, balance, harmony, integrity, trust, and renewal.

It’s come with letting go of EVERYTHING that doesn’t mirror the integrity I’ve become ultra sensitively discerning about.

It’s like a complete update and upgrade, which ultimately is a total renewal.

So, not only is it Spring time for the next quarter cycle of the year, but this whole year feels to be a year of allowing new blossoms to open from the work you’ve done all of these years, while also planting tons of new seeds and working them fully.

A time you can activate more trust and surrender to “knowing” while branching out and following new aspirations or creative directions.

A good time for cleaning out your spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical house literally and symbolically.

A time you can live more from a place of saying “yes” to your inner truth.

And tend to your own inner garden of blossoms, while planting like crazy.

Time to branch out into new areas that aren’t tied to anything but essence embodiment.

lake tahoe reflections

This photo is from yesterday.

I was in gratitude of coming full circle to “everything” that ignited here once in Lake Tahoe, NV and was seeded in my soul, now to actually surface through the sands of time within my essence. This unfolding after having followed the threads that tied up all loose ends, integrating, weaving, and retrieving, which helped me understand more fully their reason for being there and how Spirit truly has been designing it in perfect merging of love and mission as One.

All that I/we need to know is in my/our heart(s).

And then it comes down to trusting that.

The answers have always been there. You’ve always received the inner nudges. You/we just hadn’t been taught to listen to, recognize, and support them. Now you can by choosing to do so and it will get stronger the more you do.

Wishing you an invigorating, inspiring, and revealing Spring Equinox.

Ascension Notes: The 2017 March Equinox – by Kara Schallock



Feel beneath the words. Each word is an energy; and there is lots beneath the words shared here. Read between the lines. Feel with your Heart.


We are here at last…the powerful Equinox. If you haven’t awakened yet, you will; and if you have, you will awaken more. You awaken to anything that isn’t flowing and you get to change it! It takes prioritizing what is most joyful and important for you. If anything of the past bubbles up that is painful, perhaps it is time to let it go and choose a different way that is more aligned with who you are now. The Equinox is a time of celebration. It occurs March 21st at 3:28 a.m. on the west coast of America. It is a big leap forward to anchor the New. The New is created and now we take a big step in manifesting it in our own lives and in the world. There will be big movements as we go forward; in Earth and in us. It all depends on where your focus is. If it is maintaining the old, then that is what is manifest for you. If you, along with so many of us, choose to manifest Peace, Joy, Love and Abundance, etc. then that is what is manifest in your life. Create first; manifest second. As you meditate or rest and open up your Crown Chakra with the intention to receive, you will. Then you put it all into action. Remember that you are in the world, but not of it. You are an Earth Angel. As above, so below; as within, so without.


It does appear as though there is separation in the world; that of 3D and that of higher dimensions. How you choose to live affects all of life..it enhances or degrades. It is your choice as to how you want to manifest. If you choose the higher dimensions (not just the 5th Dimension), then act accordingly. Visualization manifests; thoughts manifest; any way you choose to express Love, then do it. Remember that Love is much more powerful than fear (fear is actually an illusion, while Love is Truth); it dissolves fear. All that is not Love can then return to the Light for Transformation. Let go of separate-ego thoughts of why, when, where, how and who. These only delay you and send you in a downward spiral of ongoing, circular thinking. Instead, take a step toward being more Love. Keep your Heart-feelings high and have your thoughts match your feelings. Heart: feelings; ego: thoughts. By bringing them together in a high vibration, you bring separate-ego to be Soul’s expression…its rightful place.

 
The Equinox is a powerful jump up and through. It brings more Balance. What is Balance; what does it mean to you? Balance is when all our bodies (mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, etheric, astral and aether) all work as one unit. It is having all our chakras clear and connected as One. It is being in the Flow without interruption. It is being grounded to higher realms and to Gaia, serving as a conduit between Heaven and Earth. When we are balanced, we move up in vibration and we anchor the New. Anything that interrupts the Flow is of the old. We can begin a new chapter. To be in Balance, slow down, be simple and be aware of every thought and feeling. Be in Nature. Realize that everything is a part of you, even those things you might judge as not being a part of you. Everything shines a light onto what you’ve integrated or where you have stopped the Flow. Always look to see what pushes your buttons, for it is here that you can still see what wants release and transformation. Do those things that are only what you are inspired to do; these are things not based in old responsibilities, but on what is joyous and passionate. When you do, you step more into Balance.


When you celebrate the Equinox, you may be guided to leave your crystals out overnight to absorb the beautiful energies; if you live in the U.S. You may also place them in the sun, as our sun is a conduit for the higher energies of Source. Realize too that your intentions are echoed in all the sacred sites, temples and grid of Earth.

 
The Equinox has the potential to transform any area of your life that is lagging behind. It has the potential to light up the New Earth Grid in a spectacular way. It has the potential to unite all as One Heart; Unity Consciousness. It is a passage, if you aspire to be more. It activates new DNA, a new voice for our cells and new expression for each of us. How do you choose to express yourself? You may embody your highest self in order to shine ever brighter. As we shine our expanded Light, it touches all Hearts on Earth, whether human, flora or fauna. We live by example; we are the wayshowers; we are the avatars. Together we are One Heart.

 
We are Peace. How do you express Peace? If you are against anyone or anything, you are not Peace. Peace is being Love. It is expressed through your Heart. The Equinox is feminine in nature. It is a full integration of the Divine Feminine. It is soft, yet powerful. It does not push or control. It welcomes with open arms. The Divine Feminine is within every life form.


The energies of the Equinox are peaking now, as they have been in the past weeks. Each passing day, the energy has amped up, and after the Equinox, the Beauty of this passage continues. This can lead to old energies bubbling up. Some of these might include indecision, physical adjustments and other things of the old. They come to our conscious mind to let go of them. We are challenged to stay out of busy-ness and circular thinking. Not clearing old energies is an attempt to be held back in the 3rd and 4th Dimensions, which are rife with separation and duality. This could result in not knowing what to do, being torn between trusting and not trusting, stress and confusion. You may see very clearly what works and what doesn’t. While this pushes us to let go of our old comfort zones, it may be difficult to surrender to what we are not sure of and yet, this is what is asked of us…to surrender to the New, even if we don’t know what that means. What does it mean to leave duality and surrender to the New? It means that there isn’t that push-pull many have been experiencing. We may experience a resurgence of duality in our lives. Yet, often it is darker before the dawn. Many may experience a return of old physical manifestations such as fuzzy eyes, a return of dietary shifts (eating things not so good for us and then shifting to what is nutritionally sound); ask your body what it needs in each moment and follow its guidance; and other manifestations of adjustment.

 
As we shift higher, lots of the old may very well bubble up. This all leads to a new anchoring of the New, once you let go and allow Love to flow freely into you. Follow your energy and trust. Just flow; no pushing and be simple. Love and care for you. If your buttons are pushed, please do not react, for then you attach to the old energies. If you do not react, you are free from perceiving yourself as a victim of others’ projections and patterns. When you do not react, you can see what is yours and what is not. Being a victim means you are hooked by blame, shame, guilt and attachment to being right, along with fear.

 
Trust that all you experience is for your highest evolution. Everything you experience you have chosen; whether Soul-chosen or by conscious choice. Be gentle with yourself…dance, play, draw, sing or whatever is fun and light for you to do. Whether you are alone or with others, it doesn’t matter, for we are One.
~ ~ ~
 
If so guided, your continued tithes are graciously and gratefully accepted. And thank you to those of you who consistently tithe to support this body of work. Tithing is giving from the Heart; creating a consciousness of Prosperity. I am blessed and grateful for each of you!

Celia Fenn: March Equinox 2017 : The New Beginning and the “Empty Space” Archangel Michael through Celia Fenn

March Equinox 2017 : The New Beginning and the “Empty Space”

55d45529f06c5

 

So, Beloved Ones, you are now approaching the first equinox of the year 2017.  In the North this will be the powerful Spring Equinox, and in the South, the Autumn Equinox.  The Wave of Diamond Light that is released at the time of the Equinoxes is gathering momentum, preparing to bring even more illumination and radiance to the Earth.

But, at the same time, there is a feeling of emptiness, of nothing moving forward that translates into frustration, anger and helplessness for many of you.

There is a course, a reason for this.  As you move into this new cycle of Time and Change, there are moments of high activity and shift, and there are times when you are given a space to “breathe” and to contemplate  where you have come from and where you wish to go to with your Reality Creation.

So it is that right now you are in a “holding pattern”, where you have the opportunity to align more closely with that which you desire to create as you prepare for the Tsunami of Radiant Diamond Light that will wash over the Planet in July and August of this year and will culminate in the Eclipse at the end of August.

 

The Empty Space and its Purpose in your Transformation

 

This “Empty Space” is represented in the Light Language of Planetary Movement as Venus and Jupiter retrograde.

Venus is the Light Energy of Love, Beauty, Money and Relationship, and it is these issues that you are being given the time to consider and reconsider before you move forward.  Venus is retrograding from Aries, the first house, back into Pisces the twelfth house, describing the backward arc as the New Beginning is put on “hold” to allow you to catch up with yourself and ensure that you are fully aligned with your dreams and desires and your New Reality Creations.  Venus will only move forward again in mid April, and will only cross into Aries at the end of April, so while the planet of Love and Abundance is dancing across the threshold of the New, you will be given the opportunity to ensure that you are truly focused with intent on creations that align with your Heart and Soul.

The energy of Jupiter, that of expansion, is in retrograde in Libra until early June.  Libra also represents Marriage as well as Creative enterprises, so it seems likely that relationships and creative undertakings will not be able to expand in any meaningful way until mid year, when you will be ready to surge forward with the wave of light that will enter mid year with the Lion’s Gate.

So, Beloved Ones, with these Planetary Bodies putting the brakes on significant forward movement, it may seem to you that you are in an “empty space”, where nothing is moving forward and you feel a little frustrated and uncertain.

This is as it should be, and all is in Divine Order.  This is your time to truly ensure that you are creating in alignment with your new Multi-Dimensional Energy Signature, and not in the old energy template.

It is a perfect time to rest a little, to meditate, to create and to gently find your way forward into new projects and challenges.

Beloved Ones, please resist the temptation to fill this Empty Space with chaos and noise and drama.  So many people, when confronted with a hiatus and a pause for reflection, become anxious and restless and need to fill that emptiness with some drama, and drama always brings up old patterns and old victim stories that will give you another mile or two of emotional charge to pass the time.

Now is the time to release that need, whether it be for relationship dramas,  money issues or political and  community chaos.  Step into your Mastery by being able to recognized the chaos and the noise, and choose to be in a quiet and contemplative space where you can hear the urgings of your Soul and Spirit that come from the Higher Dimensions of Consciousness and express the Higher Qualities of Peace, Love, Harmony and Creativity.

Please be aware that when significant forward movement resumes at mid -year, you will be in a far better position to engage with the powerful creative energies and co-create the dreams and desires of your Heart and Soul.

There is no need to feel trapped in anxiety and frustration.  Simply trust that all in moving forward as it should.

 

Soul Groups, Soul Families and Star Tribes

 

This time of “empty space” and inner quiet time is also a very active time on the Higher Dimensions of Light.  It is here that there is a significant energy of movement at work.  Your Soul Groups, Soul Families and Star Tribes are establishing new connections and new communities to better serve your interests when the energies begin to move forward again.

Soul Groups are composed of gatherings of “resonant” souls whose Energy Signatures are compatible and who are being attracted and drawn together right now.  Their attraction is based on their intentions and their soul missions in the New Reality.  When you begin a new project or a new Time Cycle, even at the intentional stage, you create an energy that will attract others who are initiating the same or similar energies.  The attraction is the Higher Dimensional way of bringing together groups of Souls who can support and assist each other in the manifestation of their dreams and soul passions in the New Reality.  So, you will begin to see, as you shift into a new expression of your soul work, that you will begin to attract new people with different projects and enterprises, depending on where you are being guided by your Soul and Spirit.

Soul Families are larger groupings of Souls who share a common intention in the New Reality.  Most of you belong to the Family of Earth Keepers and Earth Protectors.  You are Light Family, Light Workers and Light Warriors who are here to be the New Reality and work with the Earth in her process of Transformation and Ascension.

As a “Family” of  Evolved Souls, it is your work to walk the talk and live the New Reality in the choices that you make in your daily lives.  In this Fifth Dimensional Reality it is no longer possible to live a selfish and isolated life.  You are all part of the same Earth, and although you may access different levels of consciousness or “dimensions”, you will still need to live in a grounded way.

As a Soul Family it is your work to “model” the New Reality, with its emphasis on Service to Others, on Unity and on Creativity, Harmony, Love and Compassion.

The way to achieve this, Beloved Family of Light, is to use this “empty space” as a time to focus on your Inner Reality and on achieving Inner Peace and Harmony and Acceptance there.  It is also a time to access your Creativity and to hone your skills as Earth Keepers and Creative Beings who can manifest through personal creation.

Your Star Tribes are those Angels and Beings of Light who are your Soul Families on the Higher Dimensions of Consciousness.  Right Now, there is also a great Higher Dimensional gathering of your Star Tribes as they prepare to support those of you who are incarnated here on Earth in your Soul Missions as you Create the New Earth.

Beloved Family, be aware that you are not alone in this Transition and in these powerful changes.  You are always being loved and supported by the Star Tribes and the Angelic Beings of Light.  Your time on Earth is a powerful Adventure of Light for your entire Star Family and Tribe, and they are always present to support you from the Higher Dimensions.

 

Living Simply : The Key to Creative Flow

 

In this time of “Empty Space” it is also a good project to begin to learn how to live in a Simple Way.

This does not mean living without abundance, or living in poverty and lack.  On the contrary, it means living in and with abundance, but making choices that demonstrate discernment and creative skill.

In your old energy culture, you learnt to equate abundance with the production and consumption of many things of “value”.  And for a while this was achieved.  But in this New Reality, you have become aware of the consequences of such a lifestyle, in terms of harming the Earth itself and creating large classes of people who have no access to the basics of life.  So, as an advanced consciousness, it is your work to demonstrate that you understand these issues and that you can live in a simpler, but more beautiful and harmonious way.

Beloved Ones, maybe in this quiet time you could be rethinking your life and resolving to establish more Creative Flow by simplifying your life and environment.  What physical things could you release that could be used by others and that is no longer necessary for you to feel comfortable?

What changes could you make in your home environment that would make you feel more of a sense of harmony and flow?

How can you express your Creativity in your Home Environment, even if it is only one room?

Beloved Ones, be aware that when you have much “stuff” that lies around gathering dust and is not used, you are creating physical blocks to the flow of energy.  It becomes more difficult to think and live creatively because movement is blocked by the “old”.  In nature, the cycles of the seasons teach you about initiation (spring) into abundance (summer) and then releasing and letting go (fall and winter).  So, in life, there is also a time for releasing and letting go in order to initiate a new cycle.

At this time of Equinox, it is a wonderful time to undergo a personal process of releasing and letting go, in order to create a powerful Creative Flow that will enable you to flow with the incoming energies at mid year.

Strive to live in a simple, yet rich and abundant way.  Strive to be creative, peaceful harmonious and loving in all that you do as you move forward towards the powerful mid year Light Wave.

Let this Equinox Wave be the energy you need to Release, Cleanse, Clear and focus the Creative Flow into creating your personal and wonderful New Reality.

Happy Spring!

I am sharing some of my FB posts, the kind of thing I don’t generally have time to duplicate here. ~PB

Happy Spring! I couldn’t sleep and was up till about 4, but had to be up at 8 for an early client (and of course someone took the latest slot tonight, too), but I did post numerous articles overnight about the Spring Equinox and the intensity of the energies this week or so, as the battle of Light and Dark continues on the planet….the Light will win, but the Dark are not going down without stirring up a lot of trouble, which just adds to everyone’s stress. Meditate and carry that 5D state with you as much as possible to avoid getting sucked down by the darkness that is leaving the planet. Here is a joyful image to help….

After my client, I treated myself to Blueberry and Banana pancakes, then went back to the studio to do some major spring cleaning, washing floors, etc. I take the sheets home to wash, and since I had not slept much, I decided to rest while I did laundry. When I “awoke” from a Doreen Virtue Archangel Michael and Metatron podcast (one I listen to when I feel out of balance) , I looked at the time and was delighted!

Later, I went for an evening stroll around the neighborhood before my late client. The sky was amazing! I circled around and headed towards the Arboretum.

Here are a few images of some crocuses in the back yard…not spectacular photos, but I love to see how persistent crocuses are, pushing up from the mulch and snow. To me, they represent exuberance and a lust for life! May we all have such perseverance in these changing times. May we all know that much of the beauty in our future comes from the seeds (and bulbs) we plant today!

Selacia: Prepare for Equinox Energy Gateway

Prepare for Equinox Energy Gateway

This Equinox is a key energy threshold that offers a gateway into a new future allowing for more balance and new beginnings. Here are some preparations you can put in motion now to benefit in the highest way.

Equinox, as a reminder, occurs each March and September, signaling a change in seasons and a new beginning. It’s much more than a date on a calendar, especially now.

These times are unique, to be sure. The first weeks of 2017 have been filled with a parade of surprising events and an underlying sense of urgency about where our world is headed. As I wrote about in “2017 Predictions,” these are unprecedented moments with a lot at stake. Each of us has a role to play in creating the world we want, and simultaneously living our best lives – guided by spirit.

With polarity and division becoming increasingly commonplace in so many countries, the need for balance is crucial. With many people feeling discouraged or simply blocked about moving forward, the energy boost of this gateway can provide significant openings. Continue reading to know how this applies to you.

3 Tips to Benefit Most from This Equinox


FIRST
, slow down enough this week and throughout the weekend to be still and do some inner reflection. You deserve this time and stillness. You need quiet away from tasks and devices to listen deeply to your heart and inner wisdom. Some of your greatest breakthroughs come when you aren’t focusing on a desired outcome but simply being open to a higher view of circumstances.

SECOND, change is all around you now, and on many days it likely feels like the new normal is to have everything upside down. The most important change to focus on, however, is the one going on inside of you in these moments. Each outer world event can show you something new about yourself and what you need to shift. Invite that knowing, then be present enough over the next several days to see and integrate a radically new view of your potentials and ideal next steps. Consider that many of your greatest future accomplishments could be outside your radar – so be open to new ideas.

THIRD, keep the big picture in mind all week, regardless of how bumpy the energies get. Yes, these are intense times, and some days you may feel challenged by disturbing dreams or daytime dramas. The weekend of Equinox, however, begins on a high note that can boost your spirits in a grand way. In fact, Saturday with the beneficial Mercury-Venus conjunction, don’t be surprised if you wake up optimistic and feel like the sky is the limit. Utilize this energy to enjoy yourself, connect with loved ones, and join in group meditations like the one we plan Saturday with The Council of 12. Doing these things will raise your frequency and put you in the expanded consciousness space needed to benefit from this gateway.

Spiritual fuel and a change of pace this weekend can help you reset your energies and recapture your joy and enthusiasm for being on Earth now.

At your core, your true nature is joy. Some days you may forget this, but it is always there.

You as a divine changemaker are wired to prevail even when things feel challenging or when you temporarily lose your way. Your inner light is the beacon that leads you through the darkness to find your way home.
