A question of Faith: Causes, Influences and Advice for the Current Phenomena

There has been a lot of strange phenomena happening both within the natural world and that of human society & egoic creations. Our last Dark Moon coincided with a solar eclipse that was visible across many countries, including the United States (where I live) and the following Full Moon in September directly preceded massive solar flares which expand the visibility of the Aurora Borealis. (You can check the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Prediction Center website to see where and when the Aurora Borealis will be visible.) And Hurricane Harvey is ravaging the Southern Part of the United States. In additional to these strong natural phenomena, we have a tumultuous social and political environment that is drastically polarizing communities and pushing people out of political non-involvement and into the public arena of activism and outcry. Invisible wars are coming to the surface and political intrigue is now so blatantly obvious that citizens can no longer deny it’s existence. We wonder: Why is this happening? What are the driving forces behind this bizarre phase? Is there are purpose? Is anything we can do about it?

The world has been changing on both a physical and energetic level. The resurfacing of Shamanic connection to spirits and “rediscovery” of the validity within Ancient Holistic forms of medicine such as Meditation, Yoga, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and so on has pushed human society into a new phase of Evolutionary Integration. One that expands beyond individual health and wellness and into a global synthesis of humanistic ideas & resources along with the current issues within these areas. We are all pushing forward in our own way, and there is friction with the naturally occurring inertia within human society as change is not easily absorbed or accepted.

Hence, I decided to read on What has manifested, the causes, the influences, and the advice for the current situations in order to help us reflect on our circumstance, prepare for and resolve whatever lies within and around us.

What has been manifested are the goals we were working on, both subconsciously and externally; even if we do not consciously choose to go a certain way, our subconscious guides us with subliminal patterns in choices and actions. People have gradually organized themselves into communities and social groups that align with their own personal beliefs and spiritual understandings. What causes this is disappointment with a seemingly lack of success in the external world as we all work internally to grow ourselves in the new self-help and self-development craze brought on by the New Age Movement. There is real actual growth happening, it just isn’t what we expected. Popular notions of Growth are synonymous with Success in mundane and or superficial terms: physical reward, popularity and external acceptance. But True Growth is often uncomfortable and pits us against learned behavior and norms that no longer apply to the current environment. It challenges us to look into the unknown, question what we know and go beyond what we believe is possible. It can also bring disillusionment with a world that just isn’t as splendorous as it was promised to be. Major Influences come from the resurfacing of the Shadows within humanity as we incessantly push forward with. Modern progress is insatiable in it’s drive to continue onward: to do more, do better, and never stop. As we move forward, we may lose ourselves in the process, but then our shadow resurfaces to face us in moments of loss, confusion and brokenness. This dichotomy doesn’t seem to make sense, so it drives people crazy and pushes them against their own personal wall of ability as they try to work through it all. We must face that which we ignore, that which we dislike, that which lies in us and confuses, irritates or disgusts us. It trips us up when we are charging ahead, and now, it is running with us as we are gradually learning to accept and release it. Suggestions on how to deal with this are to not try to control it and allow the emotions and confusion to saturate our being so that we can confront our truth. This allows us to acknowledge and release what needs to be shed. As we shed that which no longer serves us, we grow. This is painful and may make us act nonsensical, but it also allows us to learn more about ourselves as we open up to the truth within and do not try to hide it under an austere or arbitrary persona. We may feel unfortunate about what is happening but true fortune lies inside our hearts as we let go of our grip on the outside and accept ourselves so wholeheartedly that we feel fortunate just being.

What grounds us is inner work to clear away the past along with what no longer serves us. As we focus on inner work, we can collaborate with others to lessen the external workload, and allow for an inner focus. Giving ourselves time to really and honestly take care for ourselves also allows us the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional space to recuperate and restore our mind, body & spirit balance, thus allowing us to more fully and willingly engage and collaborate with others.

What crowns us is to not give up or walk away immediately, but work inwardly so that we are able to leave situations when they no longer encourage our growth. And also be grateful for ourselves, love ourselves and care for ourselves, so that we are able to face negative situations with inner trust and optimism. We may get angry and feel unsupported at times, but if we can at least trust in our own abilities and be thankful for what lies within, we can have an inner faith that carries us through the situations to come.

We are always growing, always changing, and always challenged by ourselves and our environment. We are also all connected to the natural Universe, even as our Ego may push us away and make us feel alone in the world. Know that we are not alone, and even if we feel that way, faith in our own human ability to push onward will carry us through. When we can finally trust ourselves, we can gradually learn to trust our environment and be in flow with energy of the Universe. Faith, Trust, Understanding and Love connects us to our inner knowing, our intuitive and psychic insight about ourselves and our environment.

Personally, I have been through a lot, but once I faced my shadow: my fears, my anger, and my disappointments, I was finally able to release and accept myself more wholly than before. This reading helped me understand how and why Faith has been a strong underlying theme for me these past weeks: Whether or not we have Faith in Humanity and Faith in the Universe depends on whether or not we have Faith in Ourselves. So, do you have Faith? In Humanity, yourself, and the Universe?

Dream Work Classes on Skillshare

Dream Work is a very responsive and integrative type of inner work that allows to to tap into both the subconscious stirrings of the Analytical Mind and also the Energetic influence of our environment both externally and internally. Therefore I actively engage in Dream Work as I grow and develop myself.

In case you are wondering about this:
Are you interested in interpreting and working with your Dreams? Or do you want to learn more about yourself, your situation, and how to resolve issues through connecting to the energy within your Dreams? Maybe you just want to add this to your Inner Work Repertoire?

I created a class on Skillshare for self-growth and development.
Dreams bring both insight and opportunity for growth.

Allowing Divine Inspiration to Bring Abundance

Abundance is when we are in sync with the flow of the Universe which brings us what we need and more, nourishing our growth and expansion. It is also something that many people, including myself having some trouble with. So I wanted to do a reading on this and share my insight. I asked about how to be receptive to divine inspiration, how to understand the signs it provides, and then how to allow the flow of abundance to enter our lives. Being in flow is when our actions are aligned with the signs we are given, and also the divine inspiration that moves us forward. Divine inspiration Inspires us with positive, loving feelings, breakthroughs and confidence. Signs are just signals from the Universe that validate our path, they can be as simple as positive feedback from friends, clients, family, or suddenly receiving gifts when we least expect it. Allowing this all to come to us is what I consider the hardest, especially when we are so used to following certain “steps” or “classes” that are supposed to guarantee success and deviating from them can be scary and discouraging.

I liken it to swimming with or parallel to the current of a river instead of against or across/perpendicular to it. We swim with the current, which is our loving partner in life.

Divine InspirationWorld Rx comes from our inner world, it is formed from our thoughts, mindset, feelings, vibration, and spiritual essence. If we are not seeing the results we want in the external world, then it is time to expand and grow within, so that we may connect to Internal Wealth & Abundance. Because our connection to Divine Source is inside of ourselves, not in the external world.
SignsLovers Rx ask us if we are within integrity and harmony with ourselves. If we are able to love and trust ourselves, knowing that we are acting within Integrity, then it is a sign that we are on the right path.
AllowingDeath letting go of all the excessive and superficial things that the Ego is obsessed with holding onto and trusting the Universe to bring us what serves us best. Letting go of the Ego or External identity is like Dying in a sense.

We allow the old shell to die and crumble away so the seed of Abundance we planted can grow. A seed, which we planted within our inner world’s connection to Divine Source and nourished by our Self-Love/Confidence and Integrity. Death of the past Ego, the past Self allows our seed to grow as we move forward.

I also created a Guided Meditation to help us connect to the energy of Golden Prosperity and Abundant Expansion. Where Golden Balanced Prosperity is about being in flow with the Universe so that we have more than enough resources, food, shelter, human & energetic assistance for everything. We can also inspire others with our Prosperity. Excess is different, it is a negative turn that involves the Ego’s attempt to control the flow which leaves us overwhelmed.
My guided meditation encourages us to be in the flow of abundance as it travels through and around us, inspiring all those within our environment.


Dream Work, Interpreting and Sharing the Fantasy of the Psyche

I had a very meaningful dream last night that revealed a lot to me and brought up things that I already knew but had not fully come to terms with. So I decided to open up the day with the topic of Dreams and their Interpretation.

Then I did a reading to help with Dream Work

In sync with today's theme about Dreams and the Ocean of Psyche I did a reading about Dreamwork #Reversals again for #InnerWork Psychoanalysis and Self-Reflection. Using the #VoyagerTarot by James Wanless #StrengthRx #SevenofWandsRx #HeirophantRx grounded with #TwoofCrystalsRx Accepting our human/mortal feelings of weakness and fear as we reject external direction to find inner guidance and build #InnerStrength and #InternalCourage Dreamwork, and reflective analytical Psychoanalysis can be scary as we face ourselves, our inner demons and shadows of doubt in the future. So accept those "human" elements of ourselves, and don't try to keep a mental hold on it all. Allow our dreams to throw us topsy turvy with waves of confusion. Be one with the chaos and allow inner revelations to come forth. #topsyturvy #chaos #Psyche #Ocean #humanness #mortality #fear #lackofcourage #distrust #rejection #innerguidance #inspirational #tarot card for #Dreamwork #dreams #dreaminterpretation #cartomancy #selfreflection #psychoanalysis #symbolism #innerwork Luna Http://oceanbluepsyche.com

Guided Meditation Video Series: Light 光, Moon月, Sound音, Fire火, Water 水, Wood 木, Gold 金

A friend recommended that I film guided meditations so that is what I have been doing this week! Please note that this is a series that leads from one theme to the next, and even though you can watch the videos individually, watching them as a series will bring about the most affect. Also, I have edited this page to include the newest meditations in the series so that they can be added to the sequence.

On Sunday, 日曜日 I started off this series with a Vortex of Light guided meditation that included tapping and breathwork along with the visualization.

On Monday, 月曜日 I hosted a Dissolving [the ego] into Sound after sending our wishes to the Moon themed meditation.

Tuesday, 火曜日 I hosted a Burning Away the [mortal] Facade, connecting to [immortal] divine source, reforming from the truth of our being
themed one and had fun trying to not burn my fingers lol because when I started filming, I couldn’t find my planned piece of palo santo so I resorted to using the really short one that was kinda already mostly burnt up.

Wednesday was 水曜日 so I decided to record a Water Elemental Guided meditation. I had talked about possibly sticking my phone in a bowl of water since it is in a waterproof case or going to the beach, but I tried out the phone in water idea and realized that my case does leak, and I also worked too late to go to the beach. So I shone a flashlight into my crystal glass candle holder and filmed the prism effect that resembles water.
The River that Flows Underground

On Thursday I looked at all my videos and realized that the sound was too low in most of them so I attached my external microphone to my camcorder and recorded with that instead of camcorder sans microphone, or phone. I live streamed the first two meditations on facebook live, so the quality is as good as a phone can get.

Thursday is 木曜日 so I went outside and filmed a wood/nature themed guided meditation that brings up a childhood game where we pretend to be a “wooden” or dead person. Sometimes, we feel dead, whether in parts, or complete, so I decided to make this video about nourishing ourselves with Earth energy that enters through tree like energetic roots coming from our feet. We bring up the energy and allow it to nourish, heal, reconnect any frayed ends or “dead” parts in order to reanimate them, and regrow as a Whole.

ReAnimate ReGrow & ReConnect to All Parts of the Self

Friday is 金曜日 which is Gold elemental themed. So I thought of how Gold can symbolize Prosperity and Abundance. Hence I put a gold-like band around my Selenite candle holder and guided us through a meditation about accepting the energy Golden Prosperity from the Universe and allowing it to bring forth Abundant Expansion.
There is a difference between Balanced Prosperity and Excess. Balanced Prosperity nurtures our growth with everything we need and more: resources, information, food, shelter, friendships, human & energetic assistance. Excess is when we fall into confusion as our Ego tries to control the flow of abundance and leaves us overwhelmed by the torrent of incoming resources.
In this guided meditation we put on an energetic golden belt full that has many links and many tools for us to use, and if we are in need of anything, the belt magnetizes it to us. Then we allow this golden energy to embrace us in a vortex of golden dust that swirls all around helping us build and grow, as we grow golden branches our energetic fruits spread to others who join us in a link of prosperity so that the Golden Energy may go wherever it is needed. Our growth encourages and assists that of others. At the end we have the option of removing the symbolic belt and just letting the Golden Energy to embrace us and nurture our growth. Then we use our arms to smooth in the golden energy before we awaken.
