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?

February 26, 2017 Dark Moon Solar Eclipse Tarot Forecast : Let our Failures Ground and Guide Us

This weekend is looking to be crazy with what is in the news, physically, spiritually, energetically and astrologically. So while it is wonderful that what is ending is the phase of gloominess and austerity. And that a new phase of financial security is coming. The Five of Swords reminds us to stay humble and learn from our mistakes.

Benebell Wen says something that has a lot to do with this reading:
“What facet of the Five of Swords and Seven of Swords represent the inner self you are ashamed of? ”
You can read more in her blog post, Why the Suit of Swords is My Favorite

The astrological movements are Strong right now so it is a good time to set intentions for the next cycle.

I posted this on instagram 3 days ago and finally got around to recording and uploading a video for it. So this time the video has more content 😛

Building Confidence in Skills and Grounding in Self-Love

January 5, 2017
Day 5 of the 31 days of Tarot Challenge
Ethony started this challenge, she has prompts on her page that I am not following. I’m just giving a public reading every day:
Today I used Periscope because it’s raining and my internet cuts out in the rain. FYI it’s AT&T and I’m canceling service soon because I don’t want to keep paying for broken internet.

Card of the day is the Five of Blooms ie the Five of cups. Being emotionally upset about things not going the way we want them to. After all the work we’v done planting seedlings, watering & nurturing them; they either don’t grow or grow some and then get cut down by some massive setback.
This is caused by delays, especially to new projects & plans, and lack of communication and trust between you and your audience. Maybe you aren’t sure if you can tell certain people about what you are doing, or they are doing things and that they don’t tell you about, or know some information or advice that might help you but they don’t want to tell you about it. Secrecy can be unsettling and make us distrustful of the our climate

We can ground in the Eight of Bones or Eight of Pentacles which is building our skillset(s) and specialty (or plural specialties if you are guided to focus on multiple) and not only improving ourselves but also our Confidence in ourselves, our work, our tenacity of character.

What crowns us is the reversed Knight of Bones ie Knight of Pentacles Rx, not looking for consistency in the external world and building it within us. Consistent inner work to calm and center ourselves so that we are mentally, emotionally and physically prepared to Keep at it.

Best of luck everyone and Love Yourself even if the Universe doesn’t seem to love you. LoversRx : Self Love

Watch forecast on Periscope
Because my internet keeps dying on me.

Seeing “problems” from a different Perspective and Grounding in what provides security

Today is January 2, 2017, day 2 of the 31 Days of Tarot Challenge. For today I decided to read about the nature of the challenges we face, and a different perspective of the issue.

What we think we know:
We think that the nature of the problem is our lack of fulfilment in this physical realm which makes us withdraw as we are disappointed in what the world is showing us.

What actually is:
When in actuality there are too many emotions and “masques” (temporal feelings that may not belong to us and are brought on by the environment) flying around that we are just confused and not sure if we are happy or not. The option to have emotional fulfillment is there for us.

A different perspective:
This of this as the World showing you everything it is, the Light, Shadow & Darkness, the positive & negative, all the confusing opportunities and options that are available if you choose to take them.

How to incorporate this:
Make of it what we will and align with what brings truth to us. Take the the information the World provides and process it internally.

We can ground in what provides security in the physical mundane world and let it enrich our emotional body with sustenance. Simple symbols of security can bring us comfort in times of stress, and keep us grounded when we are flying away chasing fleeing dreams (that belong to others). What crowns us today is not chasing after random distractions or wanton wishes, and instead, really looking within to see what we really desire. So instead of chasing after random butterflies flying all over the place in the outside world, we will create and our own butterflies from the dreams within us. If we are confused, we can ponder over what brings joy and go from there. The world is full of possibilities and we should look within for what truly inspires us instead of chasing after everything.


Reconnection & Recalibration

Swimming in the waves this Sunday allow me to cleanse myself and reconnected with the microcosm within myself as I let the worries and frustrations of the past go. Floating amongst the waves and letting the cold ocean water rinse off all energetic influences and slosh me around in waves allowed me to surrender my fears and anxieties. As my heart fast with the excitement and of being in moving water and felt it’s strength all around me, I exuded all the pent up negativity that had been piling up. I let myself acknowledge my vulnerability amidst the sloshing waves, as the heavily salted water went in my mouth, my eyes, my nose, my throat, drawing out all the energetic impurities I had accumulated this past cycle. With the release of clogged energy, emotions, fears, and worries, I was finally able to open up to reconnect with the world. I swam till my legs were too tired to run on land against the tug of the withdrawing tide, so I waited until the waves became smaller and gently flowed onto the beach. As I stepped back onto land, tired out from expulsion of clogged energy, vulnerability and anxiety, I was ready to relax and take in the day.

In accordance with the message I received from Spirit, this Memorial Day weekend I spent time with friends and family, celebrating this life to honor the dead and all the blood, sweat and tears they shed to make this it possible for us to enjoy what we have. I thank Spirit for their message to rejoice and celebrate Together, sharing our joyful energy and embracing the vibrance of the day. Even though it was cast over and cold, we enjoyed ourselves in this relaxing adventure.

I came home from the beach relaxed and Energized! The perfect combination to start off the week! It also recalibrated my cycle and got me to an earlier sleep schedule which helps me prepare for early appointments later this week.

On Monday night I went through a mechanical purge of the unhelpful past habit of burning out online working on projects till I was too tired to stay awake and then could not fall asleep at all due to nerves so I stayed up working on some Manifestation homework and finally went to bed at 6am when I REALLY was too tired and passed out as soon as I laid down.

Today, the day after the purge, I am DONE with my unhelpful habits of the past and ready to begin a new cycle! Centered, rejuvenated and cleansed by this weekend!

I will no longer desperately apply to projects and job openings that “look good” I Know that I have work, am completing work, and have enough financially to keep me going. I will focus on my self-development, my classes (self development & business), really learn from my coaching sessions, and Clean Up!
