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?

Inspirational Full Moon Forecast for June 10, 2017 : Inner Work to Support our Self Expression

Here is my inspirational Full Moon Tarot Forecast for this upcoming Full Moon on June 10, 2017. The reason why I call this Inspirational is because I focus on Self Development and Problem Solving, thus my forecasts are for helping us navigate our way through our lives whether our life flows smoothly, rapidly, or through streams of rocks and boulders.

What is manifesting is a reprieve from the severity that we inflict upon ourselves and others around us as we relax our mental grip our situation. What is releasing is the feeling of lack of stability or a reliable routine in our lives that requires us to create a strong inner sense of stability and regularity. We can prepare for this by moving forward, ready to experience new experiences and create new memories that blossom and nourish our lives. We allow this to happen to express ourselves in the fullness of our being so that we can intake all that the universe has to give.

We ground ourselves by remembering the inner world within us, and cherishing it as we face the obstacles within our path. To have a strong sense of knowing and understanding of the inner self so that we may express ourselves fully and continue to go forth despite of what may come into our bath. What crowns us is a reprieve from overworking in the external world so that we make work on the inner self and world within us. We take a break from the building up the external world in our environment to work on our inner growth and understandings. It is time to reconnect to the self within so that we may move forward with full knowing and self expression.


Overcoming Fear and Negativity to work towards our Goals : Inspirational Full Moon Forecast for May 10, 2017

What is manifested this Full Moon is a confrontation with the severity within us as we release an obsession with having the “right answer”, thereby rationally analyzing everything wherein we pick apart issues into tiny pieces which only serves to confuse us even more. The question we face is: How severe are we to ourselves? Are we allowing our inner intuition, inner knowing, inner wisdom of the heart guide us? Are we able to release the iron grip of our conscious mind to allow the bubbles of inner guidance to float to the surface and bring inspiration and clarity?

What begins to fade at this cycle midpoint is the a morbid fascination with failures and how “badly” we have done. Contrary to what most of us have been taught, life is not a two dimensional set of “Successes” or “Failures”. There are varying degrees of success, like how well we do on something, and also varying degrees of “failure” or noncompletion. What seems like a “failure” can actually be a valuable learning experience that helps us grow, or a small step towards a bigger goal. Allowing our focus to move away from “failures” allows us to move forward.

We can prepare by releasing the painful memories in our head and letting go of fear, anger, resentment, and the negativity of our ego. We do this by opening up to the truth within us, allowing all aspects either soothe or sting us. In this way, may we face the shadow within and release the conscious mind’s grip on what was previously denied or hidden.

We can allow by simply letting everything that does not serve us pass away. When we let go, we transcend our prior phase, and enter a new level and awareness of existence. It hurts at times, because these elements we hold onto did work for us in the past; but when we hold on to parts of us that have expired, the rot spreads and sinks into our being, tainting our integrity and covering it with grime. As I filmed my video “releasing into a sea of pain” came to mind. So I want to remind us all that it is temporary pain, which may seem like forever at the moment, but once we have gone through our trials and allowed the poison within us fade away. We can move into a new phase of awareness.

What grounds us creating a new foundation of support within us, as the social structures which used to function may no longer support us.

What crowns us is working towards our goals which are dreams of the spirit, our heart, our Life Purpose. In this midpoint of this phase, and as we prepare for a new one, this is what can help guide us to the next phase.

Full Moon Forecast 4/10/2017 Wisdom of the Heart Eases our Worries and Strengthens our Integrity

For this upcoming full moon in PST April 10, 2017 at 23:08. What is manifesting is a renewed alliance with our inner guidance, whence we turn inward and trust the Wisdom of the Heart instead of relying on external rules of thought and behavior when trying to logically process or over-rationalize our situation.
What fades is the incessant worry that makes us try to keep all eyes open at all times while we wonder who is watching us, why and what they make of us.
We can prepare for this manifestation by being reliable to ourselves and acting within our integrity and in alignment with our True self, our Higher self, which we connect to through the Wisdom of the Heart.
How to allow the fading of this cycle is to continue to move forward with ourselves and look forward to what the future brings despite of all the upsets and misfortunes that we have faced in our past.
What grounds us is to really face what pains us and feel it in our whole system. Let the pain and sorrow reconnect us to our true self so we can find our true Integrity of being with which to walk forward and lead with in our life.
What crowns us is to let down our guard, and be vulnerable to the world: the pain and pleasure, the happiness and sadness. And then reassess what we are trying to protect ourselves from. Walking out of our protective barriers and letting ourselves be vulnerable allows us to learn and grow. As the pain reconnects us to our true self, it builds inner strength of character, of integrity, and in combination with the willingness to be vulnerable, our learning and strength will show results in the external physical world as we progress with our lives.


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.
