Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today!

The last full week of September brings some resolution to what has been a month of  change and adjustment.  As pieces being to fall into place for this season, notice where they have landed.  Notice what you were expecting and how things have turned out differently.   Without judgement or even analysis, just notice.

In this space of noticing the shifts that have naturally, rhythmically occurred, pay attention to you mis-placed attention.  Where were you “trying too hard”, forcing an issue or agenda?  Now, gently come in to a more unified alignment with your life, your work, your family, your relationships, your SELF.  To do this takes a bit of detached reflection and a lot of coming in to the present moment with acceptance and gratitude.

Make the time for this acknowledgement this week in some form.  A prayer?  A moment of silence?  A ceremony?  An outing?  A retreat?  It can be big or small, take hours or minutes.  It can be with a group or by yourself.  You get to decide the form it takes. This acknowledgement will help pave the way for the rooting that will be taking place over the next few months.

This is not a time to push stubbornly for something you think you “should” be doing .  Rather, its a time to appreciate what IS.  Take a deep breath, and let it go.  Remembering, theres a time and place for everything.

word of the day:  Phlegm.  (this word came up when I was looking up syn. for patience.  Interesting)                                                                                                                                         1.the thick mucus secreted in the respiratory passages and discharged through the mouth, especially that occurring in the lungs and throat passages, as during a cold.   2.one of the four elemental bodily humors of medieval physiology,regarded as causing sluggishness or apathy.                                                                                                  3.sluggishness, indifference, or apathy.

Nothing is unrelated.  So many lines of inter connection are present in all our daily work, play and interactions.   It can become overwhelming to try to take it all in. So, in order to  cope, we focus, order the information and move forward. This is helpful and necessary. But it can also lead us to forget the interconnectedness of it all and the multiple lenses that exist in collaboration with one another at any one moment, for any event.

Take a look around this week and be willing to see this  interconnectedness.  Anchoring in deeply to your own rootedness, feeling grounded and secure, notice what might seem like “coincidences” happening all around.  Are you willing to see these as not just coincidences, but important information that is necessary for your survival and thriving at this moment?  Not to brush them off or turn away or be dismissive or roll your eyes?

These coincidences, these happenings, can be on many levels.  Perhaps the animal world is offering you a mirror, a reflection?  Seeing or hearing a particular animal repeatedly this week or recently.  Perhaps its something you have been seeing as a mere annoyance (keep losing your keys recently? ).  Look to the hidden messages this week as they are coming up all around us.

They are here to guide us forward through the transition coming with the Equinox. To move us into a place of balance and equanimity.  Understanding how the logical, scientific, and analytical information works in union with the supernatural, energetic and sacred is critical.  Balance the Mind and the Spirit for this coming week and you will find yourself moving forward into this Fall with clearer discernment and awareness.

 

Word of the Day:  Equipoise

E-Themes of the Week:  Hawks and birds of prey, Fire, Revolutionary War, France, low back pain, ‘accidents’ on the physical body (minor but irritating), ovaries, lymphatic system.

Theres no way any of us here, now, can write that date at the top of the page and not remember.  The question is, what comes up for you in the “remembering”?  I don’t mean, “where were you when…..”? I don’t mean to remember that particular moment in your life, or in our country’s history.  I mean:  whats happening on the inside of you, on a cellular, molecular level? What traumas still remain?  What wounds still need healing?  What do you feel and sense on the inside?  How deep are you willing to look?

As we tune into our subtle body, our subtle awareness, a level of information is released that often goes unnoticed for long periods (lifetimes?).  Its time to acknowledge those most subtle remnants, to honor and hear and heal them.  In a world where the loudest, boldest, biggest, brightest, newest, trendiest get all the attention, it becomes even more crucial to turn inward to plant our Intention  on the smallest, softest, quietest places within and among us.  Without this work, there will be no balance.  Without this work, there will be no equilibrium.  Without this work, there be no inner or outer peace.

In honoring & healing the collective and personal trauma of Sept 11, the invitation is to turn inward.  Listen, listen deeper still. Place you hand on your heart, your belly, your hips, your head…. listen to these places.

What is here for you?  What feelings emerge?  What thought patterns are triggered?  What physical sensations arise?  Give them your attention. Give them your intention.  Your intention to hear, heal, clear and pray.

Then with a deep long inhale, take it all in and then…. Let it go.

Word of the Day:  Sapience (are we not ‘homo-Sapiens?’)

With the “Great American Eclipse” approaching soon, there is a lot of buzz in the air.  Some people are giddy with excitement over this coming event while others are already triggered into fear places and are on high alert.  Know that both these perspectives hold an element of ‘truth’.  For understanding your best course of action however, it always best to remain neutral.   Being neutral means coming into balance in your being, clearing yourself fully, grounding into your truth, and filling with your life force.  It is very easy in this day & age, particularly with our social media outlets, to become “swept away” by others excitement, worry or other impulses.  Being neutral does not mean being aloof or dismissive.  It means paying close close attention to what is really happening and how you need to respond.

Take a look at the eclipse, its meaning, its significance. Take a look at the hype, the pressure.  Take a look at this “once in a lifetime experience” and understand what that means to you. For some, it will mean intentionally traveling to be in the path of totality, for others it will mean staying closer to home to see what they see, for others still it might mean not seeing it at all.  In this seemingly obvious observation, there is actually a lot to consider and pay attention to.  Its interesting to note that through the lens of Astronomy this is a magical, fun, really cool thing to see.  But shift to the lens of Astrology and eclipses historically are not exactly seen as positive.  Energetically, they are portals that bring the darkness to the surface to be examined.  They temporarily block out all light so that you must face your deepest “blind spots”.  Imagine the entire US flocking to this path of totality for an awesome cosmic event but unaware of the energetic component to this same event.

Consider ALL lenses, know which perspective you hold, and balance that thoughtfully with other perspectives.  Through full understanding of what “it” is, you can let go of any extraneous attachments .  Look out for the following patterns:  Do you hate feeling “left out”?  Do you have a need to know what everyone else is doing?  Are you  addicted to curiosity? Are you worried you might “miss something”?       Do you tend to follow the crowd? Any way you answer these questions will give you insights into your motivations and impulses. Its best to clear these places before you ask yourself : where do I need to be?  what do I need to do?

Rhythms & Cycles are up today and this weekend.  Particularly around the number 12.  Think of what this number means to you. What is your perspective? As you consider the number 12 and its relationship to your life, ground through the soles of your feet.  Now round through the SOULS of your feet.

You may need to first open up the bottoms of your feet.  You can do this through massage.  Maybe you need to remove calluses for better blood flow to the feet? See what care your feet need today.  Make your feet happy!  Maybe they need to dance or be elevated?  This is a vital piece before connecting in and grounding through the feet.

Then consider rhythms & cycles. YOUR rhythms and cycles.  How they move, how they flow, how they repeat.  Notice the patterns in your life and week and day.  Notice the patterns in each moment.  Think of the number 12.  Where and how does it play out in your world? These rhythms have something to show you in the next few days.  Be open to their personal messages.

Exhale.  Let it go.  With a deep long sigh.

Its been an intense ride the last few days (weeks?!) for many of us and the conjunction of the recent full moon and other astrological events created a powerful portal into the past: our individual past as well as our collective past.  This has come up to be cleared, cleaned and cleansed in preparation of the August Solar Eclipse.  The themes around this deal with deep deep sorrow, sadness, regret, remorse.  As we clear our collective consciousness, its important to know where these themes lie in ourselves.

We are being directed to look to our personal past. This could be reflected in your childhood, your ancestral lines or your past lives:  depending on your belief system and your perspective.  Vibrational dissonance is needed to shift the stuck places:  use your voice, movement, rattles, sound tools, etc  to move into these areas and literally “shake them”.  Gently.  With kindness.  From this place of movement, come in to harmony with your being, bathing yourself with forgiveness, atonement and love.

The Ho’pono’pono is a powerful prayer for this work.  Repeating the phrases “Thank you.  I love you.  I am sorry.  Please forgive me.” and directing them to yourself, to those very places you are working.

Then go outside, feel your feet on this earth and soak in the warmth and health of the sun,  filling yourself with this powerful earth energy.  Grounded, Full, Alive.

Word of the Day: Forgiveness.

Re-calibrate.  With all that is happening (or not) in the places around you and within you, take a moment to re-align with your core.  Coming back to your center, notice any changes that have occurred and how you register them.  As you register these shifts, allow this new information to integrate.  Use your breath, anchor through the soles of your feet, feel this solid, clear place of be-ing.

This week, this particular practice holds significance as we navigate the Lunar Eclipse today & the peak of the Lions Gate opening tomorrow. These astronomical opportunities provide opportunity for letting go of old outdated assumptions we may unconsciously carry with the chance to re-calibrate our beings & to re-set our minds into more appropriate and aligned patterns.

Re-calibrating can take many forms.  Look around your home, work, tools, electronics & life for areas where this may apply.

Word of the Day:  Re-Calibrate
