Tools to Powerfully Face 2017 Challenges

The past weeks have been like a dress rehearsal for what’s certain to be an unprecedented year. No one really knows exactly how it will unfold, but it’s clear we will have many historical firsts and an ongoing dynamic of both surprises and shocking events. Courage to walk through the fire of unknowns is essential. Continue reading to understand how this applies to you in the Chinese Rooster Year officially beginning January 28.

What Will Be Needed

Due to the unusual energies of this year, each of us will need to reach deep within ourselves to find balance and resource our tools for coping. Throughout the year as events unfold, we will need to strengthen our inner confidence and tap our courage to make optimal choices.

The fire of this Rooster Year indeed can help us to develop increasing amounts of courage. As dramas and polarization play out in the world – things we believe in being dismantled or at risk – it will take courage to respond in the highest way. When we manage our fire appropriately, we can courageously use our voices and our light to affect positive change.

This is not the year to be a bystander or disconnect from what we don’t want to see about the outside world. It’s vital that we be present and engaged. If something that we value is under threat, we want to know about it.

Divine Changemakers Stand in the Front Row

In times like these we need to get resourced on expanded levels and find the courage to stand up for what we believe in. After all, the role of divine changemakers is to be at the forefront of changes as humanity evolves. That means standing in the front row.

To stand there in the front row means that we set an example for others. We demonstrate that we educate ourselves about the facts of issues, rise above hate and partisan bigotry, and find constructive ways to express our voices.

What You Can Do

First is to work with your anger. When something you dislike shows up in your reality, don’t let your anger cause you to go numb to your options to change things.

Instead, go to your heart and look at your anger. Discover the root cause of that anger – knowing it may even be in your DNA from past life experiences.

Example: You may have been persecuted in an earlier century for openly opposing a dictator. If so, you could have a DNA-level vow to be silent when oppressed. This vow could make you afraid to stand up to injustice. You could then feel angry about being powerless while also angry about current-day situations.

Bringing your anger to light will help you to transform it, so you can channel it into a courageous response.

Second is to be more conscious about your words. Your words matter. Be present to them as you think them and certainly before you say them out loud. Once said, they cannot be taken back. Once they are part of your repetitive inner dialogue, they can either help or harm you.

Third is to be present. Live your life in the present, resourcing what you learned in the past to move forward in a new more enlightened way. This relates to your personal life experience and also to how you respond to outer world events.

Example: Humanity tends to repeat previous cycles over the centuries. Wars are fought, horrible atrocities are practiced. Treaties to prevent future atrocities are signed. Generations of people learn valuable lessons about what not do do again. Then, it’s like an amnesia sets in – and the cycles continue. Knowing this, when you are responding to events in the news, factor in humanity’s long history – even if others are not mentioning it or think that it matters.

Fourth is to have more compassion. Some of the people you will encounter in the coming weeks will need your compassion. Take the high road of spirit by giving others your compassion. When you don’t know what to do to help your neighbor in distress, hold him or her in a space of love.

Fifth is to bravely look at what is there. This means having the courage to look at yourself – seeing your own goodness and light while also discovering more of your shadow that is your unfinished business to take care of this life.

It also means bravely looking at the world to see it as it truly is – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Seeing comes first. You cannot change what you cannot see. Once you can see things, apply courage to changing what needs changing.

Set your intention now that during this Rooster Year you will develop a boundless courage by being your authentic self – connected to your heart and your path of spirit.

Courage to be real frees your energy to live your best life. Courage to be real will connect you with the people and circumstances in alignment with your soul purpose. As this occurs, you can facilitate your own amazing rebirth. Are you ready?

Graduation Day ENERGY FORECAST June 2014 by Emmanuel Dagher

 

ENERGY FORECAST
by Emmanuel Dagher

Graduaton Day 
June 2014

Hi my Beautiful Friend,

It’s such an honor to share in this way with you again.

During this time of year, children and adults all across the world receive the opportunity to celebrate their academic achievements with a graduation ceremony.

A graduation usually brings up a multitude of feelings. For some, these feelings may include a sense of accomplishment for what they have achieved. For others, it may bring up a little sadness over the fact that the student life they are so accustomed to is no longer there for them.

It can also bring up great joy, excitement, nervousness, hesitation or anticipations about what the future holds.

Graduation Time

In terms of energy, many people (especially the way-showers) are experiencing the exact same thing right now. It’s Graduation Time.

Those who’ve chosen a path of spiritual awareness will have noticed that from about February 2014 (earlier than that for some) to mid-May, things seemed more challenging than usual.

The lesson plans and “homework” the Universe was assigning us to learn felt much tougher than before, and even unfair at times. Of course when these challenges showed up, those who have been doing their inner work immediately began using some of the many spiritual tools they’ve acquired over the years during their spiritual journey.

But just as everything would start to settle down a bit and appear to be remedied, another challenging “assignment” would pop up in its place.

Asking for Help

During these times, many who are sensitive and empathic to energy will try to convince themselves and others that they’re holding everything together, despite how out of balance they feel.

It’s OK at these times to just let go of the façade and ask for help.

After a certain amount of time of trying to hold everything in balance on their own, anyone can reach a breaking point, creating an intense energy field within and around themselves. At that point, even the smallest things can set them off completely.

Although great healing and transformation can follow such an experience, asking for help – not just putting on a brave face and saying that everything is perfect – can take some of the pressure off. A major eruption does not need to occur in order for great expansion to follow.

If you’ve been experiencing anything similar to this, then just know you are not alone.

I’d like to invite you to think back to a time when you were just about to graduate school.

Do you remember how chaotic things got, those last few months before you graduated? Whether it was taking exams, finishing up projects, attending events, or tending to anything else that needed to be completed before you could graduate, it all probably felt quite overwhelming, right?

Then, on the actual day of your graduation, when you were about to walk up and receive your diploma, knowing deep down that you were about to embark on a brand new chapter in your life, all the hardship you’d endured up to that point instantly dissolved.

In that moment, you even thought to yourself, “I would do it all over again.”

Well my friend, that is exactly where we are, right now.

Starting a New Timeline

The lessons we’ve been learning may have seemed more challenging than before, because we needed to fit in as many as possible to make it in time for our upcoming graduation day.

Graduation days are like energy portals, because they serve as the end point of one timeline and the beginning of another.

This particular graduation is leading us into higher states of consciousness. We are aligning with the greater potentials of our truest selves and our highest purpose.

It’s taken a lot of refining to get here, but we are here.

Although it may not feel like it yet for some, we have already achieved so much in terms of raising our consciousness. Yes, we will continue to achieve more.

However, it’s important to take the time to celebrate how far we’ve already come.

Craving Silence

Around graduation day, there is usually a period of time when we desire to be more introspective. Listening and being still in the silence balms the soul, by replenishing and nourishing us at the very deepest core level.

If you are craving silence, give yourself permission to be at One with it. There’s no need to rush. This is your time to breathe.

Soon after a graduation occurs, new experiences begin to blossom. You may have already been planting the seeds for these experiences to start manifesting in your life.

This can show up as doing something you’ve never done before, starting a new project, job, relationship or healing protocol, getting out of your comfort zone, committing to following your bliss, or anything else that expands you.

I am celebrating you and your continued commitment to creating heaven on Earth, for yourself and for all of humanity.

Till next time,

Miraculously yours,

Emmanuel

NorthPoint Astrology Journal by Pam Younghans June 2 to 8, 2014


NorthPoint Astrology Journal
by Pam Younghans
June 2 to 8, 2014
http://www.northpointastrology.com/1533.html

Highlighted Aspects

TUE: Pluto quincunx Sun; WED: Neptune sextile Venus; FRI: Uranus sextile Sun; SAT: Mercury stations retrograde (4:56am PDT), Mars quincunx Venus; SUN: Chiron square Sun, Saturn quincunx Sun, Pluto trine Venus
 
MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE (backward) this week. The actual station (moment of standstill) is not until Saturday — but, as always when a planet is preparing to change direction, Mercury is now moving very slowly.
 
Since Mercury represents our communication and thinking processes, this slowing can mean that our logical minds are less adept than usual this week and next. It’s best, given these circumstances, to give yourself plenty of time to think through anything, and extra time to get anywhere if you’re traveling.
 
REMEMBER that Mercury retrograde supports our doing more internal processing and less external implementation. Mercury will be retrograde until July 1, giving us the rest of June to work with this energy.
 
It’s not that we can’t make successful decisions during Mercury’s retrograde phase, but it is very important not to rush into anything. And, if you sense yourself doubting your actions, it may be an important indicator from your inner knowing that it is either not the right action, or not the right timing.
 
The fable of the Tortoise and the Hare comes to mind — “slow and steady” wins most races during Mercury retrograde.
 
NEPTUNE’S INFLUENCE is also heightened right now, since the watery planet will go retrograde next Monday (June 9). This may increase the fogginess around our thinking, but can also activate our intuition and spiritual perspective. In tandem with Mercury going retrograde, it will be interesting to watch how our minds work (or don’t work) this week and next.
 
Neptune will be retrograde until November 15. Here’s what one of my favorite astrologers, Bil Tierney, says about Neptune retrograde:

    “This retrograde period is an opportune time to review hidden undercurrents of feeling with more depth and understanding. We can and should become more reflective. By being more contemplative, we are better able to receive inner guidance in regard to how we can best get in touch with inner feelings that normally escape our conscious attention.
   
    “When Neptune turns retrograde, unhealthy structures in our lives are brought to our attention. We are given a chance to review our blind spots and uncover the deeper reasons for our vague discomfort [in the area of our lives represented by the house Neptune is transiting].
   
    “We may now take the time to explore the fertile world of our untapped imaginations, allowing inspiration to lead us to greater awareness. It can be an excellent time to further strengthen our powers of visualization and imagery. Self-discipline is needed if we hope to receive this emotional and spiritual enrichment.”

OTHER PLANETARY ACTIVITY this week calls us to make adjustments in our usual ways of communicating and to be more aware of the power of words to support or undermine — intentionally or not. The challenges related to this theme are most likely on Tuesday (Pluto-Sun aspect) and Sunday (Chiron-Sun and Saturn-Sun aspects).
 
With respect to relationships, a Neptune-Venus aspect on Wednesday should help us connect with others from a place of compassion, but without requiring us to revert to self-sacrifice. There’s a slight bump in the road on Friday that requires us to adjust how we usually approach confrontation and to find new ways to work together. And, a Pluto-Venus aspect next Sunday provides the energy for us to successfully restructure existing relationships, and to deepen our connections with significant others.

Weekly LightBlast: Being One in the Momenta message from Jamye Price

Weekly LightBlast: Being One in the Momenta message from Jamye Price
Thursday, 29 May, 2014

Watch video version here

You are becoming accustomed to a state of Being as you allow Life to flow with you and direct your creative focus toward your desires with a detached observance.  The magic of Life becomes more obvious to your human perspective as you interact with the perception of the beauty and grace of Life.  It is an engine of creation and movement that begets Life; therefore, all that you experience is to create the strength of Life to thrive.  What opposes you, strengthens you.  What supports you, strengthens you.  If you allow the perspective of it strengthening you and direct your focus toward manifestation with that same allowance.  For the butterfly, the cocoon is safety until the butterfly grows to such a moment that the cocoon becomes a hinderance that must be pushed past for the freedom flight to begin.  Do you lament your moments of challenge beyond the benefit of your desire for change?  As you direct your awareness into a focus of benevolent change opposing and supporting you into freedom, you relax more into Life improving.  It is the natural flow.  Unseen to most is the vast Love that is calling you to your Freedom and Empowerment.  Life is with you, living through you.

To allow the perspective of Oneness, is to direct your focus to the connection of Life.  That unseen Love is your Higher Self and the Source Beingness of all others.  In this non-physical form, Love is known so deeply that the human form of forgetting is its expansion.  You are that expansion in each moment, choosing with your inner free will.  You are that expansion as you forgive, as you perceive through Love, as you hold a boundary that empowers you, even as you oppose or support another.  You are the expansion of Love on Earth.  In each moment, as you are aware of the connection of Love that threads all Life, you are being the change you want to see in the world.  You are the moment offering hope, offering inspiration and offering a new way of being that benefits All Life.  You have the power of Love at your stead, which is consciousness living through you.

As we sit to Blast Being One in the Moment, we are appreciating how Life is presented to us as it is the platform for change and improvement.  We are allowing Life to flow around us, giving us fuel for focus.  We are seeing connection with all beings, even those we disagree with, as this connection is what brings true healing rather than a new form of domination.  We are calm and aware, which is a powerful state of being, we are connected and conscious, which amplifies the moment.  We are appreciating the flow of Life because we are that flow, resisting Love’s transformation for a time until forgiveness and empowerment rush in.  We are teaching others the power of Love, for it is the true transformer of Life.  Blast on!

NBC News Exclusive with Brian Williams “Inside the Mind of Edward Snowden”

I have long thought Edward Snowden to be a HERO, and I have heard his talks at some of the seminars you can find on YouTube and elsewhere, but TONIGHT, DO NOT MISS his exclusive interview on CBS. If you have any doubt about his motives, those doubts will be erased.

NBC News Exclusive with Brian Williams

“Inside the Mind of Edward Snowden”

In a wide-ranging and revealing interview, Brian Williams talks with former NSA contractor Edward Snowden about the global impact and debate sparked by his revelations.

http://www.nbcnews.com/feature/edward-snowden-interview/exclusive-edward-snowden-tells-brian-williams-id-go-home-n116756

“…Snowden said his desire to return to his homeland is foremost in his mind. “I don’t think there’s ever been any question that I’d like to go home,” he said.

But asked whether he would make a deal to return, Snowden said: “My priority is not about myself. It’s about making sure that these programs are reformed — and that the family that I left behind, the country that I left behind — can be helped by my actions.”

The United States charged Snowden with theft and two counts of espionage after he revealed the breadth of National Security Agency surveillance programs, including the bulk collection of telephone and Internet data from Americans.

The interview with Williams was conducted in Moscow last week after months of preparation and is Snowden’s first with a U.S. television network. Snowden maintained that the surveillance programs violated the Constitution on an enormous scale, and he said that he acted to serve his country.

“Had that not happened, had the government not gone too far and overreached, we wouldn’t be in a situation where whistleblowers were necessary,” he said.

Speaking of his own decision to leak the information and flee the country, he said, “I think it’s important to remember that people don’t set their lives on fire, they don’t say goodbye to their families — actually pack up without saying goodbye to their families — they don’t walk away from their extraordinary — extraordinarily comfortable lives — I mean, I made a lot of money for a guy with no high school diploma — and, and, and burn down everything they love for no reason.”….”

Focus on Your Eternal Being a message from Ann Albers Saturday, 24 May, 2014 (posted 26 May, 2014)

 

“My dear friends, we love you so very much,

When you know who you really are, you can simply enjoy the rest of your life as an adventure! You are an eternal soul walking around in a temporary body, and yet your physical life receives so much attention! You believe it controls you. You fear that it will not look as you wish. You identify with your bank accounts, your bodies, your situations in life, the people around you, and yet dear ones the greatest identification you can make, is that with love. For indeed your are fashioned in the image and likeness of God, and that truth alone will transform your existence.

Are you tired of not “having enough”? Then dear ones look into your spirit and see where you are depriving yourself of your own love. Are you wanting to feel better in your body? Then look inside your heart and see where you can feel better in your soul. Are you desiring companionship? How can you be a better friend to yourself and allow others closer to the real you? Always and forever we encourage you to look at your material world as a mirror, and then to ask yourself, “What can I change inside of me first, in order to shift my outer reality?”

You are not the body. You are not the thoughts. You are not the circumstances around you. You are nothing less than a being created from the very heart of God, a being fashioned of love, created uniquely and beautifully from this love.

Embrace the fact that you are a soul. Embrace the fact that you came to learn that you are nothing less than love. Embrace the fact that at every moment in time, whether awkward or graceful, you are attempting to create a more loving reality. And from that perspective, by all means shape your outer world as you wish. Decorate your homes. Choose cars you like. Preen, primp, and take care of your bodies. Your spirit can, if you like create a wonderful adventure here while upon the earth… as long as you remember, you are spirit first, and from that reality, all else will follow.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.
— The Angels”

Message From Ann

By now you’ve heard about my health adventure a few weeks ago! Believe me, during that time I had to use every ounce of will power to identify with the spirit living in the body, rather than seeing myself as a mess! There’s nothing like meeting lots of new, incredibly talented people while you’re looking your worst and not feeling much better! I sat by the creek with amazing people – looking terrible, hardly able to talk, and yet strangely at peace with it all! I know who I am.

And incredibly enough, no one saw me as injured or damaged, because that was not the energy I was putting out. Tired, hungry, bloated or not, I was sending forth a signal of knowing I was love and light of God and that was my deepest truth in spite of all appearances and sensations. And in that space, I had a strange joy and a sense of calm. People responded to it. A total stranger used the word “beautiful” to describe me… and believe me, the photos I took prove otherwise! But my soul was still beautiful even if my body was not, and my heart was still shining, even if my physical energy wasn’t there.

It is such a human myth that everything around us must be perfect for us to feel good about ourselves. I was at my all-time worst, and yet someone said that they didn’t even have a clue. I wasn’t trying to “tough it out.” I was genuinely finding things to be happy about. I wasn’t in denial of my physical state of being. I was simply identifying more with my spirit. And that is why I decided to teach, “Magical Self Love” again in the fall because it was putting that class together a few years ago that firmly cemented in the notion that no matter what I think, feel, or experience, I can know the truth of my being, embrace it, and radiate light in spite of everything else going on.

Embracing true self love – love of the truth of my being, has transformed my life. I wish everyone could feel so good even when they “should” feel bad, or have been taught to feel “lesser than.” There I was standing next to beautiful and talented individuals, looking gaunt, starved, bloated, AND dirty (because I couldn’t stay out of the creek!). In my younger, less enlightened days, I would have wanted to crawl under a rock! However, after working with angels all these years, I was able to focus on who I really am. I knew my light and I knew the contribution I could make to their lives as well. As a result, no one judged me. No one looked down upon me. Everyone saw the real me… because I was being the real me.

So when life isn’t easy, remember who you are. You are nothing less than the light and love of God having experiences and adventures here upon the earth. Some are glorious adventures, and some are so challenging you don’t know how you’ll survive. Nonetheless, these things are all temporary. What remains, always and forever more, eternally and beautifully, is the light of your own precious soul.

I love you and I see the truth of your being.

Have a beautiful week,

Ann

Weekly Forecast: May 11 – 17, 2014 a message from Kelly M. Beard

Weekly Forecast: May 11 – 17, 2014
a message from Kelly M. Beard

Sunday, 11 May, 2014  (posted 12 May, 2014)

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity.  Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto).  And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path.  It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*  There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast:  May 11 – 17, 2014

5/11 ~ Venus (values/priorities ~oppose~ Mars (desires):

This energy brings a balance and integration of your inner masculine and feminine energies.  Masculine energy likes to “do” and Feminine energy creates a space, contains and nurtures.  Because it is an opposition, you may swing between extremes between trying to force issues and being more open and receptive, going with the flow.  This energy also brings relationships into the light, forcing issues of balance and integration within your relationships.  If sexuality is an aspect of your relationship, then that too will undergo a balancing/re-balancing of sorts.

5/11 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to THINK before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ all together, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others so there are no misunderstandings.

5/12 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Mars (passion):

This energy gives you the courage to think things through and it activates your ability for strategic problem-solving if/when necessary. You will access your authentic voice and likely find an outlet for sharing your thoughts.  Great energy for small gatherings for spiritual and intellectual exchange.  This energy helps you over any obstacles that may be slowing you down as long as you are willing to accept Truth.

5/14 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):

Hang on – it’s going to be a challenging – but hopefully enlightening – week! The first energy to contend with will have much to do with relationships. It creates very intense emotional experiences. This is more Pluto (transformative) energy, and, in this case, it’s where love is concerned. So things in relationships will change – hopefully for the better, but if they were not built on solid ground to begin with, they may crumble completely. Stability is not part of the equation at the moment, so prepare for inevitable change. You’ve probably already felt it coming, but look out, because it is here now. The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the person or relationship, don’t give in to that temptation. Let Divine Order prevail – if it is meant to be, NOTHING can keep it from evolving to the next level, but if it is NOT meant to be, it is better to release it consciously and with the knowledge in your heart that it is best for all involved. And by all means, get the lesson so you don’t have to repeat it in the next relationship!

5/15 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty):

This energy turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel, what inspires you with love and beauty.  This is a great time to be particularly creative, or do something related to the arts.  It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time.  Pleasure reading, walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week.

5/15 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):

This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas; allow spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

5/15 ~ Venus (love) ~conjunct~ Uranus (unexpected):

Expect the unexpected – that’s all I can say! This energy makes you resistant to routine and drawn to new and exciting experiences – usually involving (in this case) love and relationships. Beware – a relationship may begin or end suddenly. If it begins, give it some time to discern its stability. One thing is for sure, it won’t be “the usual” – it will be with an unusual person or at the very least, unusual circumstances. Whatever you do, enjoy it and pay attention to any innovative ideas that come up around this time – they could be useful down the line.
