Wesak Full Moon 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tonight is a Full Moon in Scorpio. In the Buddhist tradition, It’s called the Vesak moon, the most powerful & transformative full moon of the year. Vesak is celebrated as Buddha’s birthday. Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose.

The May 2017 Wesak Full Moon theme is Compassion & Kindness – awakening to something greater than you through your Heart. It is the Full Moon of Good Fortune and a new cycle of creative expansion and sumptuous self-expression. Now is the time to play more! Let your inner-child passionately express your heart and run wild and free.

The Moon represents our needs and what surfaces under a Scorpio Moon is connection – a soulful, deep, intimate, powerful connection to another. Sometimes in seeking love, because of un-met needs and unresolved emotions, we can give away our power, leading to dysfunctional connections. Scorpios ruler Pluto, supports us to look within at the areas where you may not be expressing compassion or kindness to yourself or others. Consider re-committing to yourself in the areas you have overlooked or ignored lately.

This moon illuminates that which has been withheld or un-empowered and supports us to swim to the surface of our feelings to cleanse and heal the parts that have been un-nurtured, neglected or abandoned. Ultimately your most intimate connection is to your own soul and the deepest parts of yourself, and your primary relationship is to Infinite creator. Loving kindness and valuing oneself lays a solid foundation upon which other relationships can flourish, and necessary before we can truly be loved and valued by another in the way we truly desire.

Pushing through obstacles brings about the glory of many gifts. With the three totems of the Scorpion, the Eagle, and Phoenix, you can choose how to embody life moving forward. Will you continue to sting yourself and others like a scorpion with unkindness or patterns that no longer serve, or will you rise high above these patterns, drama, and pettiness like the Eagle, and see the big picture? Or will you transform that which has held you back into an alchemical rebirth like the Phoenix and rise from the ashes renewed and reborn?

This is the time to set your goals. Allow your creative wings to fly you new places, new people, and new experiences, and embrace the awakening of a spectacular new chapter in the life of your dreams.

Love, Light, and blessings,

What does money have to do with gratitude?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes people unknowingly confuse money with equaling self-worth, and these kinds of situations can push buttons. It’s never about the money, it goes way deeper that this into belief systems often subconscious. Money just happens to be a loaded trigger for many.

A common thread between artists, healers and musicians is the “starving artist” or “poor” or “wounded healer” archetype. Motivations for the expression of art, music, healing arts, or anything we do in life coming from known or unknown unresolved issues or unclear purpose, often colors our path with lessons around unmet needs.

Our history and ancestry dictate our beliefs, and everyone has something they can transform into a higher way of operating and being in life. There is always an opportunity to become a higher vibrational version of ourselves.

Sometimes asking for what you want is a lesson in itself, requiring great courage to move past internal thoughts that are saying “no don’t do it, you’re asking for too much.” “you don’t deserve it”. Other times the ego is in charge, and the heart is left behind, leaving compassion and instinct by the wayside.

Being grateful for an opportunity that may not have come to fruition the way we wanted, may seem counter-intuitive when disappointment rears its sad & unhappy head…but actually in the big picture, it’s an opportunity to get one step closer to your desire and creating a dream come true, and that’s something to be grateful for.

Whatever the case, It’s about the journey, no matter where one is at in life…An attitude of gratitude goes a long way. Finding the gratitude in all situations is a magical, healing, transforming tool. Money may come and go, but gratitude journeys deep in your heart, blossoming and building momentum with each activation of gratitude. Gratitude is like a seed that grows all the things that you want. Take the time to nurture the seeds of gratitude and they will bring an abundance in all forms, gifts, and richness to life, far more than you ever imagined.

Feeling grateful for what you have is the easiest way to invite more blessings into your life.

With Love, Blessings & Gratitude

MERCURY RETROGRADE  2017

MERCURY RETROGRADE  2017

I have grown to love mercury retrogrades…I am ruled by Mercury and feel great depths of opportunity during a retrograde welcoming me towards introspection and expansion. Over the years I have learned to apply the positives of Mercury retrograde and remain mindful of mercurial cheekiness. In 2017 Mercury retrogrades 4 times. In this new 9 year cycle, new people, circumstances or situations may enter, influencing our lives for the next nine years. Emotional, spiritual growth can reach new levels of expansion. Transformation and transmutation of that which is no longer needed can take place with Mercury’s support. This year Mercury retrogrades in earth signs and finances often play a big role in both the issue and the solution when Mercury retrogrades in earth signs.

Tip during this time: Stay grounded and practical with time and money.

WHAT TO DO WHEN MERCURY IS RETROGRADE

Retrogrades are often an intense time for many. Mercury the planet of communication goes retrograde and takes 3 weeks off 3 or 4 times a year impacting all types of communication. Mercury Retrograde is all about moving into a deepening of our trust, faith, inspiration, listening to and following your intuition. Surrender and tap into the universal messages that are available to you right now. You have abundant support to quieten, listen and receive. It is a great time to revisit a project, re-connect with people, do some deep emotional or spiritual work, or finish something you started a while ago…Mercury retrograde is an interesting time where things that may have been looming or eluding you for some time, effortlessly come to the surface to be transformed or healed. Mercury also impacts and rules all the messages we give ourselves. (a big one at any point in time) For some this resurfacing is uncomfortable. The awareness of the messages you are sending yourself can open the door to huge breakthroughs and disarmament of limiting beliefs or unempowering patterns. Discomfort is an opportunity for change and change leads to expansion.

Tip during this time: What you resist persists. Go with the flow, allow and welcome all that is with unconditional love. Practice this until it is natural and becomes your “go to” response. It may take a bit to welcome that which is unwanted or undesired with love, but with time it gets easier. Ultimately it is a skill learned like any other skill. It’s all about shifting perspectives.

As the planet of communication, Mercury retrograde sometimes breeds confusion. Mercury rules our “lower” mind–how we perceive and interpret information that we receive from our environment, and how we relay that information to others. Mercury has rulership over communication, speaking, negotiating, buying and selling, listening, formal contracts, documents, travel, the mail, shipping, plus issues with electronics. All of these areas of life are affected when Mercury is functioning in a sleepy state. Decision-making is sometimes challenged during Mercury retrograde. It is not advised to sign contracts, engage in important decision-making, important purchases or launch a new business. Delays and challenges are more probable with Mercury retrograde. It’s a time when being careless or inefficient with money, personal information, or paperwork can be costly.

Tip during this time: Backup, check, check and triple check.

Truth is you deserve all you want…all of us do.

Truth is you deserve all you want..all of us do.


Sometimes it’s a matter of us all seeing & transforming old patterns of undeserving etc…these are holographic data of when we were younger and perceptions we formed early out of our circumstances with young not yet matured reactions…they overlay onto our current energy system and are like a shadow. Often we are not even aware they exist. So it’s in self reflection and new awareness this is revealed.

I was meditating yesterday and received information about it from my angel guides. They said; learn to recognize when this kind of holographic data is active, then acknowledge it, thank it, and then choose to act from your higher self…the holograms are old ideas, reactions and perceptions of our young self that most often do not serve us any longer. So trick is to recognize it… ask if not sure, then ask oneself to act from higher self.

I resonated with the explanation about old patterns being like holographic data imposed on ourselves. And explains the reason why we often know better but still act out old patterns, cause we get hooked into the hologram as it’s familiar, automatic and deeply ingrained in our energy system.

This helped me understand why we sometimes attract another that is not available for us, or like my girlfriend was saying this morning how she is not taking good care of her health cause her husband doesn’t take care of himself … is reflection of the old hologram showing up and continuing to be activated. It’s never really about the other person. It’s simply showing information about us that we may not have been aware of prior. The hologram you are tapped into at the time determines your current “truth”.

When we avoid taking a situation personally or making a situation mean anything negative about ourselves and simply see it for what it is, we avoid negative self judgment and making a story about what we think it means which then hooks in our emotions into the story, giving it meaning and fuel, leading to a biased view of our experience.


Story + emotion + meaning = perception = truth…

Change the “story” and you’ll shift perception and access the higher truth and the gift in your experience.

Working out in winter months

Cold weather & drafts leave people more vulnerable at this time of the year, especially if they have a low immune system, or low adrenal /thyroid function…Ayurvedic & Chinese Medicine principles both recommend Mid Dec -Early Feb not to exercise to point of perspiration in winter as the dissipation of heat from body is hard to replace. Its time to stoke fires, eat heavier foods and increase oil content in diet, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil etc…Food tastes should be primarily sour, salty and sweet. Soups, stews etc…Time to store and conserve energy…avoid drafts, and keep kidneys , back , head and ears warm….The goal in winter months is to maintain metabolic & digestive warmth… Because the low temps are around, it is natural to want to heat up with cardio, strong workouts, hot or “warming” Yoga postures or exercises  etc…at the same time its good to keep in mind that at this time of year, it is most supportive to do an exercise  practice that warms the body, but not to the point of sweating…and avoid drafts. Especially in a practice room or gym that’s colder.  If you find yourself sweating, at least wear layers that keep you warm, rather than allowing the sweat to cool you, especially around kidneys.

Enjoy!
