THERE’S a storm a-brewin’. At times like these, our efforts are best focused in setting boundaries and staying calm. We realize that our main work is to maintain our balance, since we cannot stop the incoming waves, nor stem the tides that are turning.
The two tides that are in the process of turning are Saturn and Pluto, both of which go direct this week after being retrograde since April. When planets come to a standstill to change direction, we feel their influence more strongly — and in a year that began with the life-changing Saturn-Pluto conjunction, to have both planets at a standstill at virtually the same time makes this a pivotal week in a very pivotal year.
We can expect delays and frustrations (Saturn) this week, as well as more evidence of dysfunctional systems that must be either renovated or scrapped completely (Pluto).
ADDING to the complexity of these days, Saturn is tightly square warrior Mars as the Ringed Planet stations direct on Monday. If we’ve been feeling controlled by circumstances recently, the pressure of this square may feel especially oppressive. It represents obstacles to the fulfillment of our desires, and tempts us to drink from a deep well of futility, if we take it all too much to heart.
One key to navigating this square is to call upon the qualities of wisdom, detachment, and objectivity. The more we are able to keep events in perspective, and not overreact, the easier our passage through the storm will be.
A SECOND TACTIC is to take things quite literally one step at a time. If there’s an issue to be resolved, just find the next piece of the puzzle, rather than trying to figure out how the whole picture will come together. It will be too easy to go into overwhelm if we have that expectation.
Basically, we can’t see around the corner with a square aspect. We are mostly aware of the obstacle in front of us. That obstacle can evoke irritation at one end of the spectrum, fear at the other end, and anger somewhere in the middle.
Actions motivated by any of these lower-vibrational emotions are likely to backfire. If you’re feeling impatient, like you have to do it NOW or you will burst, stop. Take a breath. Take your time. Consider that it might be your instinctive reactions, not the situation itself, that are creating the sense of urgency.
IT MAY HELP to remember that with Mars retrograde right now, we are meant to be going inward to discover our true motivations. Certain obstacles may be in the way specifically to give us the time to reconsider where we are going, and why. We are also learning not to base our well-being on whether everything goes according to plan, nor on whether we feel our individual desires are being met.
One of the take-away lessons of this Mars-Saturn square is that our well-being need not be controlled by external events. Another learning is that the fulfillment of our desires may not depend on the manifestations we once thought were essential to our well-being.
WE HAVE two Full Moons on the calendar for October. The first occurs this Thursday, October 1, at 2:05 p.m. PDT (9:05 p.m. GMT). The Moon will be at 09°08´ Aries, with the Sun at the same degree of Libra.
Emotional responses are always elevated around the time of a Full Moon; with this lunation in impatient Aries – and with Mars, the natural ruler of Aries, square Saturn – we can expect that feelings will be running hot, but will not necessarily be channeled maturely or to best advantage. Given that Mars is retrograde, the anger that is released now may be the result of impulses that have been repressed for quite a while, which means that the response can be out of proportion to current triggers.
BUT, this Full Moon also represents a major healing opportunity, with the Moon just two degrees away from Wounded Healer Chiron. If we find ourselves acting out of insecurity or fear – the shadow side of Chiron in Aries – we are being directed by the universe to take a break, to sit with the part of us that is feeling these emotions, and to hold it lovingly in our awareness while we tell it that we understand,
and that we’re sorry it’s afraid.
This inner child work, when done purposefully – and out loud – has a healing effect deep within our psyches. It is a powerful way both to help heal a fearful part of our nature, and to strengthen a part of us that knows it is competent and able to handle any situation that might arise.
MARS is at the same degree as the dwarf planet Eris at the time of the Full Moon, with their exact conjunction occurring on Saturday. The alignment of these two warrior planets is highly energizing, especially for those who have felt ignored, disrespected, or victimized by the ones
who appear to have power and control.
However, with both Mars and Eris currently retrograde, actions taken under this influence may not have the expected results. The advice once again is to take your time. If taking action, be sure you are inwardly composed and in alignment with your soul. Our soul speaks to us in a voice that is calm and calming, even if it is guiding us to take steps
that require courage.
JUPITER AND PLUTO are exactly parallel by declination on Saturday. This is a similar energy to a conjunction, but calculated based on their distance from the ecliptic (celestial equator), instead of according to their zodiac degree. Some astrologers believe that the declination is the most potent type of alignment, so this event is another important factor this week.
When working together with a higher vibrational intent, Jupiter and Pluto can manifest as strong determination and will. They enhance our ability to align with our higher destiny and support a passionate commitment to what we believe in. But, when used without integrity, they can also result in excessive pride and self-righteousness, and a relentless drive for power. How we use this energy is
up to each of us individually.
PLUTO stations direct in Capricorn next Sunday (October 4), which means that its transformational energies are heightened this week and next. Throughout this year, Pluto (with the help of Saturn and Jupiter) has been making it very clear which systems and structures do and do not work. It has also helped expose corruption in governments and social institutions. As the dwarf planet begins to move forward over the coming weeks, it will be taking us to the next level of transmutation.
With Pluto, it is always helpful to remember that it is the planet of both death and rebirth. Its process is aptly symbolized by the legendary Phoenix, which is reborn only after being consumed by fire. The disintegration phase is a necessary step, and requires that we release what has been so that we can embrace the new life that lies just ahead.
IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK:This year, it is especially important to notice where you do not give yourself equal rights, where you habitually deny your own needs or postpone your own agenda. Libra is highly motivated by the desire to help others feel welcome and supported, but can sometimes be less aware of its own needs. Chiron’s influence in your life this year asks you to pay attention to when your mouth is saying “yes” but your gut is saying “no.” Give yourself the freedom and space to get in touch with what you really feel and think. Make the commitment to be as kind to yourself as you usually are to others. (Solar Return Sun square Pallas Athene, opposite Chiron,

Dear friends, I am Jeshua, your friend. I greet you all from my heart. I connect with each and every one of you, so feel that connection between us. Although each one walks an individual path, there is a resonance, a joint desire and search, a shared humanity between us. Feel the living heart that beats in each one of you and have compassion for one another. You are gathered here in a group, so respect the other persons, although you do not yet know them very well.
Behind everyone’s face is a story, a depth, a history that explains why someone is as she or he is, so listen to the other person’s story. The longer you listen to the story of another person, the deeper you will eventually understand and recognize a common core: the same roots in the other person as in yourself. There then emerges a sense of unity, and differences dissolve and you reach out a hand to the other person. And when many people reach out a hand to one another, a fertile ground is created and love flows to Earth. This is what is now happening and all of you here want to participate in this flow, which is why I respect you deeply. We all are on this path together.
In growing toward the One, to a unified understanding, to compassion for one another, the female energy plays a large role. It is the connecting element between people, as well as between all living things. Let us now feel the female energy here in our midst. It is your beating heart, a heart that forgives, a heart that understands, a heart that builds bridges. Let the gentleness of this connecting energy flow through you and through us all. Feel its gentleness, and at the same time, its indestructible power. The heart that understands and forgives, that reaches out a hand to another, is the most powerful energy that exists in the universe, causing new creations to take place and old wounds to be healed. It is now time for healing, because deep wounds have been caused in people and to life on Earth.
I ask you to now connect with the Earth beneath your feet, here and now, where you sit. Let your consciousness inwardly descend through your legs and feet as if it has roots going into the Earth. Feel the Earth and nature around you, the wind that blows, its power, its sound. You are part of this reality, and the Earth is aware of you and experiences you. When you attune to the Earth, it creates a connection and you feel and experience that the Earth would like to enter into a relationship with you. Let the Earth now speak to you, and it does not have to be in words. Simply experience a wave of energy that wants to now come to you from nature, from the natural environment. What the Earth has to say to you can be different for each person. Allow it to flow up from bottom to top – and relax. Everything that you feel is good; just breathe into your abdomen.
You are here for a reason. You have selected this place on Earth, partly consciously and partly unconsciously, from intuitive layers within yourself. Engage these intuitive layers now by descending into them, into the feeling, connecting part of you. What do you need from the Earth here? The Earth desires to give you something, so let it come to you. Feel sustained by nature here, by the Earth.
One of the ways to connect with the female energy is to “lose” your mind by surrendering to a flow of life that cannot be grasped by the mind. This you do by consciously being in your body and not only in your head, but in your arms and legs, your mid-section, your pelvis, and feel what wants to flow there.
I said in the beginning that the female energy leads you to what connects you with other people, to unity. But you cannot really make that connection to another without first being connected to yourself and being at home in yourself; when you can descend into your body and your emotions and can truly be who you are without judgment and attempts to suppress with your mind.
The first step, then, to unity and connection, and to an open heart, is to dare to descend very deeply into yourself. The connection with the Earth can greatly serve you here, so feel her presence. The Earth is natural through and through, so she has no problem with the rhythms, mood swings, and emotions you have as a human being: a being of nature. Everything is acceptable to her – light and dark – so feel the naturalness of her presence.
I ask you again: what does the Earth give to you here in this place? And If you find it difficult to discover what that is, then connect to the inner child in your abdomen. It is the part of you that is most free from your head, from judgment, from the regulating mind. It lives, it moves, it is spontaneous. It wants to talk with you continually and to remain connected, but you sometimes keep it away for fear of what it wants to tell you – allow it to speak now.
What does your inner child experience here? Connect with it, put your arm around it, and look at it again. Feel all the excitement of this child, the passion, the gleam in its eyes. Reach out your hand and take the hand of your inner child. Stand with both feet on the Earth, connected with nature around you and within you, connected with an alive, playful child of nature, because that is who you are – you have come here to play. In contrast to anything else you have been told by way of your work or school or society, it is the playful child within you that is the most natural and, therefore, the most spiritual part of you. Trust her, trust him, and let go of your mind.
We have now taken the step inward to connecting with your inner child and with the Earth, with the nature within you. If you are at home in this way of being, connected with yourself, then connecting with other people becomes something special, something more relaxed and playful, exploring and free. Doing that is hugely illuminating; it makes the burden lighter. Because, on the one hand, you are deeply looking for connection with one another, and on the other hand, so many things keep you back from entering into a truly open and uninhibited connection with another and with yourself.
You are full of judgments, admonitions, prohibitions, taboos, all entangled in a cultural tradition in which a mental energy, a male energy, has had the upper hand. It is now time to let go of this energy – this habit – even though it still has a hold on your lives. You have been fooled into believing that in order to be a good person you ought to be serious, controlled, responsible, but the road to connection, to a harmonious world, can only really happen through the playful, inner child. The old male energy must give way to the child within you. But doing this can lead to an inner struggle within you, because, in part, you are still chained to the old, compulsive judgements.
How do you deal with this transition from the old to the new? You can fight against the old or you can go along with the new, and you know that fighting always leads to energy loss, to exhaustion. You cannot convince the old of the goodness and the importance of the new, which is why I am asking you to look for yourself. Is it not better to travel a path of lightness and joy and to trust the messages you receive when you are deeply in touch with the Earth and with your inner child?
Your female energy can help you to do this. Each time you go inward, allow things to be as they naturally are from an open heart that understands and forgives – and first of all, understands and forgives yourself. Then a basis is created, a foundation, an inner strength from which the connection with the world, and with others, becomes quite different – richer and deeper. First receive yourself from an open heart and then it becomes natural to receive another from an open heart. Allow the energy of the open heart to encircle us all. You do not have to do anything, it is already there. Imagine that you can lean into it to receive it, and in receiving it, you give it to others.
I thank you all for your presence here today.

This topic arises so often in sessions that I feel led to address it here, too. Many times, life tugs in different directions. Empaths, especially, sense how our own decisions affect the people we know and love. To some extent, this is a good thing. A person who lacks any empathy is also known as a narcissist or sociopath, so yes, we do need awareness of how our behavior and attitudes affect other people.
Empaths feel the emotions, attitudes, energy and thoughts of other people to a sometimes debilitating degree. Even the thought of hurting someone else hurts us. Without protection, we feel the disappointment, judgment, illness or whatever other pain of someone else within ourselves. When lived unconsciously, empathic “gifts” feel awful. Mysterious body aches, overwhelming sadness, anxiety, general confusion or lack of desire: I always advise empaths to ask, “Is this mine?” Because many times, it’s not. Good energy hygiene aides discernment.
I call this the Energy Brush Off, but it’s also a Japanese technique called Kenyoku or “dry bathing.” Bring your right hand to your left shoulder and then sweep down your arm, past your fingertips. Repeat on the other side, left hand to right shoulder, sweep down past your fingertips. Alternate sides three times, then flick your fingers like you washed your hands and can’t find a towel.
Repeat morning and night, like you brush your teeth. You can also do the Energy Brush Off anytime you felt good until you interacted with someone or something then suddenly felt tired, angry, sad, oppressed or “not as good as you did before.” Sudden shifts in health, emotions or energy levels often indicate some kind of empathic exchange. Brush that energy off before it settles in and becomes “yours.” It won’t really be all yours, but it becomes much more difficult to sense your own emotions, desires, attitudes, hopes and dreams when you embody those of everyone around you.
Good energy hygiene offers a regular reset to your own energy field. The more often you return to yourself, the more you recognize your own energy, including your own longings and desires.
The more often you return to yourself, the more obvious it becomes which people and situations dampen or drain your energy. Awareness of these dynamics doesn’t always mean you need to cut all contact. Some situations might require that step, but in most cases, a little strategy goes a long way. If you know someone’s patterns and how they usually affect you, then you can protect yourself in appropriate ways. Since Empaths lack the separation/boundaries that most people have, good strategies involve not only releasing picked up energy, but also creating a healthy buffer zone.
Some of my favorite empath tricks include:
- The Energy Brush Off shared above
- Black tourmaline and/or onyx for energetic shielding
- The Algiz Rune (creates a “moat” effect around your castle/energy field)
- Using a mantra like “I deserve good things”or “You do you, I’ll do me”
- Educating yourself about patterns in narcissism, BPD and sociopathy
- Educating yourself about codependency and/or Adult Children of Alcoholics
- Reciting the Serenity Prayer
- Walnut Bach Flower Remedy (to live your life path in the midst of others)
- Crabapple Bach Flower Remedy (if being around others shames you)
- Pine Bach Flower Remedy (in situations requiring more forgiveness than you feel)
- Cultivating relationships that support and encourage your own sovereignty
Number 11 on that list happens more naturally and easily the more you commit to “navigating the should’s.” Yes, life, society, work and family place obligations on us, but not all obligations are healthy or appropriate. Sometimes a should just means a habit. Sometimes a should entrenches unhealthy behaviors and expectations. Sometimes a should was good for awhile, but now no longer serves. Refusing to accept every should at face value can feel scary, wrong, or even “evil,” depending on the situation and characters involved.
At first, you might not have anyone in your life encouraging you to explore and process underlying patterns. In that case, a coach, counselor or support group becomes a lifeline until you can internalize your own encouragement and support. As you grow more confident, you will begin to attract different caliber relationships into your life.
Good discernment tips include:
- Focus on “power to, not power over.” Empowerment honors individual sovereignty without forcing one person to bend to another’s will or expectations.
- Walk on it: take your question(s) outside with you and let your mind and emotions process to the regular rhythm of your feet, legs and swinging arms.
- Sleep on it: ask your subconscious mind for guidance before you fall asleep. Pay attention to any dreams, as well as noting first thoughts/feelings upon waking. I often awake with snippets of song lyrics, which when researched, provide incredible insights and answers.
- Remember that we train people how to treat us. Establish boundaries and then act in consistent ways. Reward good, respectful behavior. Refuse or call out attempts to manipulate or coerce.
- Realize that people accustomed to benefiting from your lack of boundaries won’t appreciate your desire to change. That doesn’t make you a bad person! It may not even make them a bad person. If you want change, then the onus of change rests upon your shoulders. Freedom from the destructive effects of too much empathy brings great rewards, but those rewards often come with criticism. If someone freaks out because you ask for boundaries or a little more space, consider that confirmation of the imbalance you sensed.
- Do what you need to do from as kindhearted a place as you can, including kindness to yourself.
- Get to know your Inner Child. If you were his/her parent, would you allow your child into this situation or with this person? How would you help this child to deal with a sometimes unfair or hostile world? How would you help this child to know his/her own value, regardless of what others say or think?
Navigating should’s becomes easier the more you get to know and love yourself. Most empaths excel at loving others, but the self love comes hard. You deserve good things. You deserve respect, and you deserve a chance to thrive. Only you can live your unique life with the unique qualities, challenges and gifts you bring to this world. If you feel surrounded by conditional love and overwhelming expectations, take some time to nurture and reclaim yourself.
Pamela Kribbe channels EarthDear beautiful people,
I am Earth who speaks. Feel my presence in you, because I live and speak to you through everything you feel in and through your body. I am constantly connected with you, so feel me, for I have a heart that beats and an essence you want to receive in your life on Earth, here and now. Allow yourself to be received by me.
I am your mother in many ways, as I sustain you through the body that belongs to you. The language of your soul and the language of your body are, in fact, one. The soul, your higher source of direction and truth, communicates with you through your body. A human body is not just a physical thing, a lump of matter; it is a living energy. It itself is enlivened by, and carries, a knowing that comes from my soul. So when you incarnate in an earthly body, you bring your own soul-knowing, your own understanding and development with you, and you pour that into the form of an earthly body which carries wisdom from me: wisdom about life on Earth, the “laws” that apply here, and about how energy flows and moves here.
It is intended that your soul enter into cooperation with the soul of the Earth, with me, the one who is speaking. I am a tool for you, and you are allowed to utilize me. I want to help and sustain you, and to teach you to trust the voice of your heart. The heart is a part of your body, but it is also a gateway to the soul. Your belly is the place where your inner child lives, who is your authenticity, your deepest feelings, emotions, and desires, and your belly is also the gateway to the source of the life force. So see the body as truly a temple of the soul, a living temple.
You are not alone, your closest friend is your body. It wants to provide you with all the information you need to live on Earth. It wants to help you to make choices based on what you perceive and feel inwardly. To come to rely on the wisdom of the body is perhaps your greatest challenge, because in the way you are conditioned by society and by the traditions of the past, you start thinking from your head, and you want to control and order life from there. But the living wisdom of your body is not to be structured and contained in that way; the body has its own dynamics.
Today, I want to tell you something about the importance of listening to your inner child and your emotions, and about distinguishing between emotions that are pure, and come solely from the inner child, and disturbed emotions – or so I call them here – that do not come directly from the child, but rather are distorted and malformed by the thoughts in your head. These are emotions that come through an interpretation based on prejudices from external standards that corrupt and disturb how your emotional signals function. This is very relevant to you, because you know inside that it is best to follow your feelings.
You try to orient yourself to your feelings, on what your heart, your soul, tells you. Yet, at the same time, there are all kinds of resisting emotions through which you can get no clarity and which makes following your feelings no longer as simple as it could be. I would therefore like to make a distinction between emotions that arise directly from the purity of the inner child, and disturbed or interpreted emotions that have a different feeling, that are less direct and pure, and are often a combination of judgment and repressed emotion.
I ask you to now go to your inner child and allow an image to emerge of how it is with her or him at this time. Your inner child is spontaneous; it allows its emotions to be seen without a filter. Reading the emotions of a child is not complicated; you can get it by glancing at their little faces: anger, bewilderment, anxiety, or enthusiasm, joy, pleasure. These are primary emotions that come unfiltered from the child. But what happens when that original stream is blocked, suppressed, or is redirected based on external standards? The child is being punished for expressing primary emotions and this often happens during your upbringing. Most parents do not know how to deal with the power of primary emotions, so the redirected emotions take on a life of their own and a distortion occurs.
To give one example: a child feels spontaneous grief. There is a concrete cause — something cannot be or something is going wrong — and the child cries because it is upset. It shows its grief through tears and desperation. The parent says: “You don’t have to cry, because …” and gives the child all kinds of reasons why things are not so bad as the child thinks. The parent, the adult, tries to dampen the grief rather than embrace it. If the grief is allowed to flow out, allowing the child to become calmer, then the child naturally finds a way to redress the balance. The grief will not last forever, but it seems as if adults are afraid of the emotion and therefore immediately try to curb or nip it in the bud.
But what happens to the child when that emotion is not allowed to be directly expressed or only partially so? The child attaches a judgement to the emotion, because the child comes to think: “It is not good to express my grief. Being sad is actually not good. It should not be; it is unacceptable.” The child then incorporates that “lesson” and will react the same way when it is again called upon to control its emotion or when it is reprimanded. The emotion does not disappear, it is a living energy that cannot be undone through the head, so the suppressed emotion remains and creates disturbance in the child. Instead of the innocent, spontaneous power that the emotion initially carried, it has now been subverted and has gone “underground”, and it will eventually carry a disturbed or even toxic force. When a child is continually reprimanded and instructed to systematically hide or control its emotions, there then becomes a reservoir of buried emotion in that child, and because of that, the child can eventually display disturbed behavior.
An emotion wants to naturally express itself, and is not really a problem that must be resolved or removed, but a natural expression of the earthly body, a discharge. And the function of that discharge is very important toward restoring the balance between the body and the emotion. When you disrupt this discharge, it creates in the child, and later in the adult, a pattern of emotions which are blocked by the force of judgements that are continually relayed to the child and, now, also to the adult. An emotion wells up and immediately a force resists the emotion in order to contain it. It can be sadness, but it also could be anger, fear, or shame — it could be anything.
When those emotions become subverted and are not allowed to be experienced or expressed, they take on a different tone, another “charge”. Long pent up anger, for example, can become toxic, turn into bitterness and hate, or into cynicism and even depression. In depression, you are able to see the ultimate form of an emotion that was turned inward and never allowed to be outwardly expressed. The person no longer sees the source of the original emotion, because the connection with their inner child is beyond their reach. If you were to tell that person something like: “listen to your feelings”, then that would be a very difficult task for that person because of how separated they are from their inner child. Many of you are that person who has learned to keep their original emotions in check, to hide them, to block them, or to pass them for review by a roster of judgments that tell you what is allowed and what is not allowed. So listening to your gut feeling is not usually so simple or obvious.
How do you make a distinction between the pure messages of your inner child and the disturbed and distorted impulses of the oppressive adult, who each of you have become to some extent? How do you recognize the difference between the two impulses?
Go back to the inner child you saw in the beginning and feel its presence. Feel, for a moment, the innocence of this child, for it is very pure and natural. It is sensitive and vulnerable, but also very powerful and pure. It allows whatever emotions present themselves to act as a natural force that flows through them and then blow away.
Where is the inner child located in your body? Feel that for yourself for a moment. From where does it speak, and how is it heard? The inner child invites you to kneel down to it with tenderness. A child naturally calls up tenderness, because it is so guileless; innocence is what is typical of a child. Hold on tightly to this image of the innocent, spontaneous child who is not in your head, but in your heart or your belly.
Now see what moves toward this child from within when you connect it with your head and the judgements that are still active there. What kind of flow streams from your head to your inner child?
In each of you still live judgments from the past, things that you do not allow to be present, which make you think that what you do should be better or different. It is those compulsions that are imposed on your inner child, and as a result, the child feels uncomfortable and not welcome. Those instructions, which you have made your own about what you cannot and are not supposed to feel, still live in your head, although those instructions are not in accord with your emotional reality. So who wins? Your original emotion or the dictator in your head that changes the emotion into something “acceptable”?
What is happening in the energy field of your head is a lie, a masking of your original emotion. In this way, the inner child is put in a prison and becomes isolated, which makes connecting with your feelings often very difficult. You first need to be aware of the lie, or the liar, in your head, and this calls for a certain clarity in perceiving yourself.
Thus, in your life, there are two figures, whom I here call “the liar” and “the original child”.
By labelling a part of you as “a liar”, I do not want to judge this aspect of you, because it is almost inevitable that it exists in anyone who grows up in the way described above. Still, it is a figure to be reckoned with. The liar sends all kinds of signals to you telling you what you can and cannot do; the liar discourages you from doing certain things and attempts to persuade you to do other things. And sometimes you go along with it, because you really think that it is the right thing to do.
In order to find out if something is really true, it is extremely important to connect with your body and to look there for the emotional reality of your inner child. Try to feel the difference. If you are talking yourself into something from the liar, the tone is not one of love and gentleness, but is coercive, manipulative, controlling, and there is usually an undertone of anxiety and the need for imposing limits. On the other hand, if you descend from your head to your abdomen, the reality of the child feels much more open, gentle, and innocent, and much more stable and solid.
Feel the difference in energy: the compelling, often impatient flow in your head, and the gentle, innocent, open, and more steady energy of the child in your belly. And make a firm decision to now choose for the child; to allow it to really experience everything it feels, and to see the power and the value of doing that, even though you do not know what you actually need when the child, for example, is very angry, sad, or confused.
Let the child be, and do not try to restrict it. Allow the energy to work on you naturally through what the child feels, and try to remove your “head” when doing this. Then ask the child: “What do you need to now have in your life to become happier, more joyful, merrier?” What kind of energy is most helpful for this child ? What does it need the most? Take the child in your arms, then merge with it into your belly. It is the messenger of life, it receives information from your soul and wants to pass this on to you in the earthly form of a pure emotion. Let go of the judge in your head, and believe in this child; and feel supported by the Earth. I am the soul of Earth, and I want to envelope you with love and power, and to invite you to again trust your original nature, which is as pure and innocent as the animals, the plants, and the flowers.
Thank you so much for your attention.

The Oneness that is God, that is All That Is, includes every sentient being ever created or that ever will be created: There is NO separation! Ever. But, living in form, as humans, the reality of this escapes you. You have forgotten the Truth, and because of the severely limiting beliefs that being human imposes upon you, you need divine Guidance to find your way Home. And that Guidance – the Holy Spirit – is always with you waiting patiently for you to take the time to listen.
Living as humans in form your egos are extremely vociferous, making it very difficult for you (you are not your egos, although your egos don’t want you to know that) to hear the still small voice for God. Sometimes you do hear but refuse to believe it, thinking that you know better. You have all at times gone against your intuition, your inner knowing, and, when things have not turned out as you had hoped they would, you have regretted not listening to your intuition. Your intuition will never lead you astray. Nevertheless, that does not mean that your path will always be smooth, because before you incarnated you set yourselves up with a path that would present you with the lessons that you needed to learn, and that you had therefore chosen to learn.
Most of you have had many human lives and have not yet learned all the lessons that were appropriate for your circumstances. Now, as your awakening approaches, these lessons must be learned to enable you to move forward. Within every human these lessons are now arising in myriad ways, causing chaos, confusion, and conflict in many places, and in many relationships. The way to deal with them is to listen! Your divine Guidance is always with you, and Its message is consistent, it is always the same: “Love one another!”
Deep in your hearts you know this to be true, and yet you disregard it when you choose to be offended by another’s unloving judgment of you, or by their unloving words directed at you, and instead of responding with Love you choose to respond – or, more honestly, react – in a similarly unloving fashion. Many people are forever attacking others, or defending themselves against others, and even though it is normally done only silently in their minds, what people do in their minds establishes their beliefs, the beliefs they live by and which direct their lives: “I cannot trust anyone; I am always being attacked; no one appreciates me; no one understands me; no one LOVES me!”
For as long as you wait for another to be loving first, so long will you keep on waiting to be loved instead of being attacked. Love and change starts with you! After all, as you have so often been told: There is no one else!
Over the last five or six decades many people have woken up to this, and have changed their attitudes and their behaviors. As a result awareness has grown, on a scale never before seen in humanity, of the need to move from fear to love in all relationships, from personal ones to international political ones, and all in between. It is this enormous change in the collective awareness that is leading you so powerfully forwards towards your inevitable awakening . . . and without delay.
Your awakening requires that all your ignored or denied issues – anything within you that is not in alignment with love – arise into your awareness so that they may be released. This means that you must forgive all who have caused you pain or suffering of any kind. Most of you are aware, or are becoming aware, that quite often what you experience as an attack is nothing of the sort, that you have in fact just misperceived a situation or a communication. However, in the moment, you either reacted defensively or attacked the other, leading to escalation and conflict which was not only unnecessary, but was also painful, and very damaging for the relationship.
Before forgiving however, demanding judgment and restitution for perceived wrongs seems just, righteous, essential, and the only way for people to live together peacefully in any kind of community or society – Rules are required and must be obeyed . . . or else!
This is the way humans have conducted their lives for eons. It is not forgiveness just to let go of bygones because the offending person has been judged and suitably punished, leaving you feeling and believing that justice has been served, while, at the same time,you continue to hold onto a sense of vindication because of the outcome. Now, more and more people are beginning to see through the unworkability of this belief, and are changing their attitudes and behaviors to reflect this awareness.
Forgiveness occurs when you choose to forgive another by completely and utterly, without any conditions whatsoever, letting go of any hurt that you have experienced and been nursing – sometimes for many years. When you do that you find peace within yourselves. Within that feeling of peace another amazing thing also happens: you find that you can forgive yourselves for all the wrongs that you have committed which have hurt others, and which you have, until this moment, either denied because you are so ashamed of them, or justified because you believed that they were perfectly reasonable responses to another’s attack on you.
Forgiveness calms the potential energy that can build storms of painful emotions within, which have often been lovingly held onto for long periods of time, sometimes decades, that erupt powerfully from time to time, totally and utterly dissolving them. Until you truly forgive you will find this impossible to believe. And when you do forgive your whole experience of life changes dramatically for the better, because all those jealously harbored resentments and feelings of bitterness, over how others have treated you in the past, are no longer constantly replaying in your memories and bringing those events vividly back to life in the present moment, thus denying you any sense of peace or joy.
The process of forgiveness, and it is a process, demands recognition and acceptance of your humanness and of your divinity. Your divinity is, of course perfect, but your human side is in the process of evolving spiritually, and forgiveness is a large part of that. There are very few among you who do not bear grudges and resentments against others for perceived mistreatment, valid or invalid, that continues daily to disturb your ability to feel at peace for any length of time. When memories of mistreatment arise causing strong emotions of fear, pain, anger, and resentment to invade your minds, your sense of pleasure in just being alive gets blocked out or hidden from you. When true forgiveness occurs within you, you will know it, because those storms of painful emotions will no longer be present, and you will find yourselves mainly in a state of peace and contentment.
Therefore, in your daily periods of contemplation, meditation, or plain relaxation as “you just smell the roses,” set the intent to let go of the judgments that encourage your sense of righteousness, and which forbid you to forgive, because you believe that justice must be done and be seen to be done. It is these long held attitudes which have brought so much pain and suffering to humanity over the eons. After all, most of you have no trouble forgiving small children for their errors and mistakes, therefore intend to realize that although you inhabit adult sized bodies, and have probably done so for decades, there is still within you a small child who acts out from time to time. Now is the time to intensely renew your love for that small, and often frightened child – who undoubtedly had many experiences of painful and abusive behaviors while growing towards adulthood –and welcome it into your arms with a warm loving embrace, while totally forgiving it for every misbehavior or misdeed that it has ever committed. This will not be accomplished in an instant, because injury – mental, emotional, or physical – encountered during childhood leaves deep scars that require time and loving kindness in order to heal.
Give yourselves that time to heal, don’t try to rush it – rushing, seeking instant gratification, is endemic in many parts of the world today. Your inner child needs time, your time! So provide it willingly and lovingly, and listen to it with great patience and empathy. Explain that you totally and utterly support it, and that you will be there when it is in fear, and that you will help it to grow up – as it most certainly wants to . . . don’t you remember, you did? – being there with wise guidance when it feels threatened or needy. Love is the offering that your inner child needs and deserves from you, and only you can provide it. It’s very likely that when you were small those who were caring for you, or were supposed to be caring for you, did not give you the time you needed, therefore it’s a need you do fully understand . . . honor it in your inner child!
Your loving brother, Jesus, who always honors your inner child
This message really speaks to me where I am in my life at this moment. I know many of us will appreciate these insights. Innately, my body knows that I need to move, to be in nature, to hang out with no timetable and just be. In doing so, I can let go of the mind and allow deeper relaxation and connection to my Inner Child. Feeling into the body this way fosters inspiration and creative solutions. ~PB
I am Earth. Feel me in the ground beneath your feet, in the air you breathe. Take a moment to sink down into me and relax. The tension that arises from the activity in your head settles into the tissues and muscles of your body. Know that your body will help you to let go of this tension because it is not natural for the body to hold so much tension: it wants to release it. Let your mind become empty, and allow your awareness to go lower in your body. Become aware of your feet, your ankles, and your knees, and allow your breath to descend slowly into your abdomen.
One of the reasons why you often do not feel secure or safe in your life is that you are not well grounded in your body. There is often a basic tension that pulls you upward, and causes you to center your awareness in your head – and you do this far too often! You are then overwhelmed by thoughts about other people, about what you still have to do, about what went wrong; all thoughts that cause anxiety and unrest and do not even necessarily match the actual facts.
Take a rest now from that busy head work, and your body can help you to do that. It would like you to relax and to rest. Allow the tension to drain away and your thoughts to gradually slow down. Feel your roots deep in the Earth. Your body belongs to this Earth; it is an extension of it, an expression of it. The cells in your body know how to strive for balance through a process of recovery. Ask your body the questions: “What do you need in order to relax? What does it take to get me out of my head? What can help me to embrace the natural state of my body, and to move along with it?” The body carries much wisdom in itself and is without ego. It wants to work together with you and to serve you, and is naturally focused on balance.
If you look at what emotions disrupt the body the most, you will see that fear is the main one. Fear grips your energy and causes you to lose your grounding, which in turn causes you to not listen sufficiently to the natural flow of your heart, your body, your soul. When you are taken over by fear, you contract into your ego and you withdraw your light from your body. The light can no longer flow naturally throughout your body or radiate outwardly. As a result of such contracting, you eventually become tired and exhausted, and you do not nurture your body in an optimal way.
The second energy that upsets a body is what I call the compulsion to control: to want to control things, to make them orderly, to set them to your will. When you insist on having too much control, to forcefully direct and try to be in charge of your circumstances, you then put too much pressure on life. You want to set it to your hand, and that drains and exhausts you. It brings you into confusion, because you try to control life from your head, and this often fails because there are larger forces that should be taken into consideration.
I want to tell you something about the interplay between soul and Earth, in whatever form that interplay takes between soul and body. Your soul is older than this one life. Your soul has visited the Earth many times and every time the soul again tries to create a channel, to form a path toward the Earth, so it can be seen through the body and manifest itself in this reality. And the body wants to readily cooperate. It wants to receive your soul and to let your soul-light radiate, because it is the nature of the body to take part in this process. It wants to receive the light of your soul into itself, because by doing this, the Earth itself is also nurtured and fed. I love to receive your light!
So you could say there is a vertical flow from Heaven to Earth. The soul descends and the body becomes imbued with the light of the soul – it is nurtured and inspired by it. The body receives the soul and the light passes through the body into the Earth. From that point of view, there is nothing to worry about and everything is fine, just as it should be. Why then all the anxiety, tension, and compulsive control? These obsessive, reactive energies have their origins in human society. They come from the thought forms that prevail there: the ideas, the standards, the judgments, especially those from the past.
So along with that vertical flow from Heaven to Earth, where your soul and body stand in positive relation to each other, there is also a kind of counter force at work. This happens more on the horizontal plane and creates a hindrance. These horizontal currents are the opposing forces from society that are based on fear and judgment, on the idea that life on Earth is entirely about survival, struggle, and competition with your fellow human.
Feel this energy for a moment in your own body. First see the positive flow from above to below; how your soul wants to descend and the Earth wants to receive your light through your body. That is how it is meant to be. See if you can feel this flow from head to toe, in an uninterrupted way. And now feel the influence that comes from society. Those urgings are mixed with fear, struggle, competition, the need to be better than another person, having to work hard, obligations, being in debt. Look what that flow does to you.
You can often feel, on a purely physical level, where those limiting negative energies affect you. They may already be in your stomach and abdomen, your chest and upper back, your throat. What matters, however, is that on your path in life, you feel ever more strongly the connection that runs vertically, the connection between Heaven and Earth, between soul and body. It is important that you are faithful to that flow so you feel very strongly that you are capable of facing the opposing forces of fear and mistrust on the Earth, so that in the end, they no longer have much affect on you.
When you begin to feel your vertical connection – this vertical channel – more strongly, you start to form your own counter force against those old energies and light then flows through you into the world. You are then helping to shape the collective energy on Earth and redirect it by making it more light and more radiant, so that it is easier for other people to believe in their flow between soul and body, their connection between above and below.
When living from your soul becomes a choice about how to live your life, it does not mean that you just align with your inner light, the flow from above to below; it also means that you separate from the old energies that are still working in society. It is then that you make a double movement. You break with the old world and, by connecting with your soul, you take a step into a new world that is intended to emerge and gradually grow on the Earth and become a reality.
In that sense, you are a consciousness pioneer, a lightworker who opens new possibilities, simply by traveling your own path. For many of you, it is that you stand at the cutting edge of turning toward a new path. However, you can still feel affected by the opposing forces in your life that you have absorbed from society: the judgments, the limitations, the negative thoughts that keep you back and impinge on your courage and your faith. Have pity and compassion for yourself when this happens. There is alive in you a child who is, on the one hand, full of inspiration and able to reach high into the sky with its dreams and visions. But on the other hand, it is fragile and sensitive to love and recognition from others. This child needs you with your strong, powerful consciousness that takes it under its protection when necessary.
Imagine that you now feel this child present in the area of your abdomen and heart: in the middle of your torso, in the center of your body. Feel the wisdom of this child and also the freedom from care and its originality. This child, in its originality, does not concern itself with what society thinks it should and should not do – it is just what it is. Feel for a moment that radiant light, so earthly and so heavenly at the same time. This living child in you is a beautiful fusion of heavenly and earthly energies. At the same time, it is a child who has to learn to find its way in earthly reality and for that it needs you.
When the child is overcome by fears: a feeling of being too small, of not being able to stand up to fear or negativity or judgment from the outside world, it needs you in order to feel nurtured and supported. Whenever this child seeks love or recognition outside itself, the intention is that you support it, that you give it what it needs. Envelop this inner child with your strength and love. And by that I mean the energy of the Earth: the security, personal space, and strength that is so needed by the child.
Boundaries are also necessary for this child. In this earthly reality, it is essential that the child in you learn when to give and when to receive, and when it is appropriate to not involve itself and to set a boundary. Feel how the child needs that firmness from you, and give it to her or him.
Maybe you think: “Doesn’t that child know these things already?!” But the child has need of an adult, a guide, in order to find its way here in the earthly reality. A child is naturally unlimited, which would work well in a reality in which the energy of the child is the same as the energies around it, when there is a like-mindedness and the energies are naturally given and received. But in this earthly reality, and the arena of any given social environment, it is necessary for you to know where your energy is welcome and can flow well, as well as to know where and when to withdraw and to draw a boundary.
This is the process of attunement that you need to do for the child. The child allows you to see what is needed through its emotions; if it becomes sad in a particular situation, for example, or angry or restricted. And it is up to you to be responsive to this signal in order to protect the child and support it by way of your actions. That is your job as an adult. Then the child feels safe and secure, and feels seen and heard by you.
When you are receiving your soul-light in your everyday life, it is necessary that you guide that energy toward the Earth. The child in you wants to receive and radiate and live from that energy, but it can also be made anxious by the opposing forces which exist in the world, and you can guide it. You want to set down something grand and beautiful and light from your soul. However, from your inner child there are sometimes also anxieties or deep fears that hold you back. You are the channel between the two: your soul and the child.
When you want to connect from your heart with the Earth, and to follow your inspiration, imagine that you hold on to your soul with your left hand. Imagine it as much bigger than you are. It stands to the left of you and you hold the hand of this soul figure that is the essential you. You can see it as an angel, or a beautiful radiant figure. Feel the stunning grand light of this figure, imbued with love, joy, and wisdom.
Now imagine a child next to you on your right side and you also hold its hand. Your reach out your right hand to this child. This child is also beautiful and radiant, but in a childlike way, innocent, sometimes naïve, and, at times, somewhat impulsive. The child is the keeper of your life force, it contains your roots to the Earth. The child is your connection to the Earth, and the intention is that a fusion, a union, take place within you between soul and child, Heaven and Earth. Sense whether you can now feel this: the child on your right side and your soul on your left side. Be the channel between the two.
Or you can imagine that your soul stands behind you, a big, warm, loving figure, while the child is centered in your abdomen and you let the energy flow in that direction, from behind to in front. Whichever way you do it, become aware of your own position in the middle; literally, you are a mediator. You are the guide for the flow of energy. You sense when it is time to take a new step or direction in order to allow the soul energy to flow, while taking into account the deeper emotions of the child in you who has to carry out this step in the reality of everyday life.
I would like to illustrate this in concrete terms. Imagine that you are in a situation in your everyday life with a job that initially attracted you. However, you now increasingly feel: “This is not me at all, there is something in me that is not being addressed in this work”. You feel discontent, and maybe you sleep badly. You feel tension in your body and you try to first solve this dilemma in all kinds of ways without changing anything at the core. Maybe the problem is one of not being recognized sufficiently, or of feeling that you cannot express yourself in your work, and this is true for many of you.
When that happens, it is because your soul power is awakening. It knocks at your door and this raises anxiety in you because it announces change. You could say that your inner child reacts by dividing into two aspects. On the one hand, it longs for more imagination, freedom, and space to move in. It feels the need to play and be creative. On the other hand, it is afraid of being scolded because it is veering off the beaten path by wanting to do something new, outside society’s accepted norms.
A child is naturally more vulnerable to external influences and it reacts more strongly to them, so it needs your strength, your perseverance, your determination not to listen to them. It needs you to let go of feelings of anxiety, nervousness, and fear, and instead to surrender to your soul power. See how you play a mediating role. Whenever you are more open to your soul – and you want that because that is the purpose of your life – then, firmly by the hand, hold on to your inner child with its need to feel safe.
You can give the child that security, and the key to doing that is for you to know you are the anchor for this child; not the world, but you. It is you who teaches the child that you are able to offer it the security it needs, so the child does not have to seek that safety from parents, the work environment, friends, or colleagues. You are the anchor, the foundation is in you. That is your job – your role as a mediator between Heaven and Earth. Be the parent of your inner child, be its guardian and protector. Your soul energy can then descend deeply into the area of your abdomen, into your emotions and your roots. The child in you can then feel safe and secure and supported, and be able to step out with confidence into the outside world.
In many people, it happens that they are open to the light of their soul and the inspiration that goes with that: the longings and the dreams. However, the area of their abdomen remains closed to them, because there are emotions of fear alive there that do not want to be seen, because of feeling shame or powerless. As a result, the inspiration, the soul-light cannot properly anchor, cannot be properly rooted in everyday life, in everyday thinking and acting, which in the end, throws a person out of balance. The result is a gap between your dreams, wishes, and desires on the one hand, and the day-to-day reality on the other. But your soul’s intention is for you to bridge that gap, so you may believe in, and realize, your dreams and your desires.
Take the child in you by the hand; teach it to turn inward and come to you when it is full of doubt and uncertainty. Teach it to be independent of the influences from the world outside you. Then you become strong, powerful, and grounded and the flow of your soul can be channeled into the Earth.
This is a process that takes place step by step, and each person travels a unique road. Feel the forces of Heaven and Earth that want to support you in doing this process, and feel at the same time your main role as a mediator. In this role resides your greatness: that you cooperate with these forces of Heaven and Earth, of your soul and your inner child.
Thank you for your attention and it is my deepest wish to extend my love to you.

- This is a time of HIGH SENSITIVITY on the planet. Sensitivity and emotions are heightened within all of us. Be aware of this and tread lightly wherever and whenever needed, in order to maintain balance. (It is a fast and furious time on Earth when it comes to multiple information streams, sensory influences and multiple dimensions of existence playing out all at once.)
- Ask Yourself Regularly: Am I overstressed or overstimulated? Do I need to step back, change my pace, find a moment of silence?
- COMPLICATIONS TO PLANS and unexpected developments were a theme for many in April. This energy will continue through the first half of May. How do these changes affect you? Do they capsize you emotionally or cause anxiety?
- CONTROL AND THE LOSS OF IT (when outer circumstances surprise or challenge you) can cause an energy reaction of shock/fear/grief. Once these emotions have moved through, you can return to an energy direction of acceptance and presence to the new situation.
- COMMUNICATION WILL BE MORE AWRY. Passionate and fiery communication will be coming out of the mouths of many, but not always in a cohesive or graceful way. If this feels like you, you may want to write your feelings down before sharing them, as a way to see clearly what is truly for others to hear or what you just needed to feel yourself see and express.
- It is a time of DEEP DNA LEVEL HEALING for the collective. A major re-patterning is taking place, which can feel as uncomfortable as the magical moments can feel wonderful.
- There is a DESCENSION PROCESS taking place for Lightworkers right now – getting in touch with (and releasing) old human trauma, both yours and the collective energy of it. It is all a part of the current ‘Rise of the Lightworkers’ energy (spoken about in my earlier message HERE).
- As we are EVOLVING VERY FAST, we will also rise to the surface the old wounds, limits, and past stories for healing and clearing. This is how healing and true evolution can occur. This means you will notice new layers of emotion, ego, and internal reactions. These rise in you so they can be felt and released. Know you are not alone in going through this process.
- Accompanying this are CORE CHILDHOOD WOUNDS AND ISSUES, now rising to the surface in waking life (and for some in the dream state). Can you lovingly parent yourself when your inner-child is expressing its hurts, limits or fears? Can you let yourself off the hook, and let go of any ideas of “I am not where I am supposed to be!”
- Try to surrender control of the mind WHEN DIFFICULT FEELINGS ARISE. Allow yourself to not feel ok when you don’t feel good. These muddier feelings want to come through you, so their stories are seen and heard one last time before the energy can be returned to you, free of the old story and ready for new journeys. Allow yourself the time you need to not be as functional, or as clear as you would like to be. Therein will lie the transformation at the DNA level. And you will return to clearer and brighter energy once the process is complete.
