Other than some subtle Mercury aspects (just two), there are no more planetary events for the rest of the week. Next week is a whopper, and we will need the rest of this week to fully download and integrate yesterday’s Sun Mercury / Jupiter manifestation. I saw a gorgeous picture on Facebook yesterday that accompanied an article by an astrologer about the trine, and it struck me right between the eyes that this is a perfect depiction of the manifestation energy. I would put it up here, but I can’t find it!! It was three deeply still elder yogis, sitting in lotus position in a triangle with knees touching, hands on knees and light filling their collective hands. Light streaming through cracks in each torso, suggesting an expansion into Light. What struck me was the group energy, which is so essential for any manifestation. Anyway, things to think about while Mercury’s new operating system settles into our consciousness, our bodies, and our hearts.
What I am noticing is that almost everyone is dealing with a lot of discomfort, not necessarily the physical kind. Some are dealing with weak physical areas, others with recurring emotional issues. Nearly everyone is exhausted, and many report not being able to think properly, put two thoughts together, or say anything cohesive. I too feel as though I know nothing. The only time I feel comfortable right now is doing a reading, or writing this column.
If you feel comfortable and happy, then one of two things is true for you: Either you’ve been through the profound discomfort mentioned above and come out the other side already, or you are in denial and it’s time to wake up. That is not meant as a judgment, more like a wake up call, if indeed you are refusing to wake.
Honestly, I know a lot of very conscious people who are currently digging in their heels and refusing to smell the coffee, largely because they are so profoundly uncomfortable. This is, unequivocally, one of the most uncomfortable moments we’ve ever been through. The reason this is so is because we have not been here before, ready to bring the cosmic Self into the physical and hold the space so that the planet her Self can ascend.
I firmly believe that all of us have ascended before, many times. We know what ascension is. The difference this time is that we are remaining in the physical realm, and holding a space that has never been held before, for the sake of the planet’s consciousness and well being. And because we’ve never been here before, we are experiencing a kind of discomfort we have never known before. The key to success is to stay with the process, and BE centered and still, while remaining Self Aware and willing to take response ability for everything we perceive… ALL of it.
Good, bad and ugly are judgments, and they do not serve us at all any more. It is best to recognize judgment as it arises in you, and then let it go, as soon as possible. We are experiencing the first wave of ascension on the planet, and if you wish to be a part of this avant garde reality, letting go of fear in any form is prerequisite.
BE as you are, willing to tell your Self your Truth at every turn. Bare your soul to your Self, without hesitation, because all hesitation is fear, and fear is not a quality of the new world. The moment you feel fear, you are back in 3D, and only the conscious decision to let go of fear and embrace Self Love can restore you to the new order.
Think on these things this weekend. Think on anything that comes up that causes your breathing to slow or become shallow. Think on anything that causes you to feel uncomfortable, and ALLOW it. Don’t struggle with it, resist it or judge it. Just let it BE what it is. Our feelings deliver us back to the center, to the still point, and we have to FEEL them freely and unabashedly to find our Selves living in our hearts.
“If you want to shrink something,
You must first allow it to expand.
If you want to get rid of something,
You must first allow it to flourish.
If you want to take something,
You must first allow it to be given.
This is called the subtle perception
Of the way things are.”
-Tao Te Ching
