Slept In The Night, Day #3 of a 21 Day Reversal

September 20, 2017

Into the nighttime rest last night within the midnight hour of the brand new next day,

Awoke as the clock stroke 5:55 AM EDT…..

Within the beauty and joy of that powerful number out of my bed I arose

Gratefully thrilled yet humbly in the service of the upward hill climb towards a reversal of irrelevant sleep cycle from a past life now gone….

With conscious awareness along with the knowledge of the richness of that past I joyfully thrill to the magnificent adventure of this present moment at this most treacherous though transformative of times.

Having slept.

An amazing thing that I rested and refreshed all my synapses and the miraculous systems that I embody

Awake to the faithful feeling of the light of dawn even as there is still the darkness of the veil of the morning night sky.

Awake however still quite sleepy, albeit somewhat rested enough to witness an awesome lit sky.

An awesome lit sky.

The glorious light of an awesome lit sky

Good Morning!

L’Shona Tovah!

Happy New Year ✨☺️✨

And most importantly Peace on Earth🙏

What It Is, What It Is, What It Is

September 2, 2017

There are no ” white supremacists”.

That term is not based in reality.

Rather the term needs to be changed.

I believe that they would much more aptly be called in actuality what they genuinely are ; “white ignorant racist bigots with delusions of supremacy”.

Personally I don’t comprehend anything supreme about that.

How did they get that title anyway?

Did they begin calling themselves that or did other folks with more wisdom and foresight give them that name as a way to label the pathology which that form of bigotry steeped in pathological narcissism is.

In light of the ecological crisis we are in at this time and the utterly distorted backwards economy which I believe is consuming and exacerbating catastrophic events at this moment in time, I believe it is necessary to refer to “white supremacists” as they truly are which is “ignorant white racist bigots with delusions of supremacist-tude”.

Jung says “you can’t heal what you don’t feel”.

I believe my thoughts above are expressing this on the collective interpersonal level reflecting my own experience of hearing that term, “white supremacist” which in reality is quite oxymoronic in light of the actual meaning of the term and the harm that it causes.

Yes, most significantly my concern is the term’s relationship to the harm that it causes.

There is nothing at all supreme about that split way of thinking which is based mostly in fear and greed, albeit there are other nuanced components at work, as well.

Rather than referring to their felt experience of being human these folks have left their bodies, ( which gets devalued, much like the feminine in our culture), so that any aspect of the shadow side of their humanity gets split onto the other.

Disavowed shadow gets projected onto the “other”.

All of this to say I hope the pundits, journalists and the public can begin to name these groups for what they are and not the grandiose delusion they believe themselves to be.

And then as the Eurythmics have said “Welcome to the human race”

And what about the left progressive side of the things, the Antifa?

I will be including an exploration of this side of things, while trying to see if there’s a way to ” hold the tension of the opposites” and seek out, look for or create a bridge of common understanding,

Please stay tuned.

Our Country Is A Place for Humane Thriving People…….

August 30, 2017

As I am moving further into this day, September 1, 2017….the first day of a new month and the beginning of the end of another week along with my own personal grappling, challenges and agenda to keep moving forward….I heard a phrase from the Broadway Musical Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Loyd Weber and Tim Rice….where Jesus is screaming ” My Temple shall be a House of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves! Get out, get out, get out.”

What a metaphor, depicting the sentiment of We, the People concerning the current administration but in my mind and to my knowledge and research a catastrophe, a mega wake up call to all of us that are conscious and aware enough to see it, that has been coming….

On This Day of Solar Eclipse & The New Moon

August 21, 2017

Reflect then on your hearts desire as informed to you by the energy of your Moon’s placement in your chart.

There is a magical wisdom in the Moon eclipsing the Sun that holds the promise of manifestation for all of your needs wants and desires to be realized.

With clarity, focus, discipline, practice and perseverance structures of support, health, prosperity, success and most importantly harmony and peace can and must be made manifest at this most awesome of times we are living.

Something about this longest day……June twenty one 2017

June 21, 2017

This time of life as this day of the brightest light continues to unfold.

This day being the  longest length of time that the light of the Sun which is traveling through the nurturing sign of Cancer lingers on until long into the night.

Such a divinely captivating phenomenon, this time of the evening Sun.

The glorious warmth of Summer that serves to illumine our lives.

This time of year can be such a glorious cycle of warmth and light which almost always, for the most part fills me with wonder.  How it fills me with such delicious pleasurable charms and the beguiling bliss of many delights.

How utterly awesome to be alive at this moment and aware of the Mystery of the Universe just doing its rhythmic consistent dance.

Its thing, if you will.

 It’s own Cosmic thing.

That to my mind is the dance that expresses the eternal play of shadow and light.

Please do take a moment on this longest day of days and breathe into your awareness how you would like this day to unfold…

Acknowledging the presence of your presence within this beginning day of the Summer Cycle and the sweet journey towards Autumn, remember to  ask your inner being, what shall you create for yourself, your life, your heartfelt blissful needs, wishes and desires within your journey on this June 21, on this longest light of day.

Then with awareness, deep understanding and compassion  observing  mindfully and with loving kindness the strength, beauty and  grace of your own intuitive cleverness (ultimately forever seeking balance), that allows you to discover and realize what you have lived, come to realize and are beginning to know of yourself and your life.

Then with gratitude for the gifts, resources ,challenges, puzzles and quests that are all part of a well lived life…then dear reader, become acquainted with your own knowledge and your experience of the consistent rhythm of precious aliveness as you watch with fascination as this longest, longest day of all days slowly, slowly, slowly and ever so slowly closes as it culminates into the cool shadows of night.

Happy Summer to All ✨☺️✨

Uranus, Mars, Aries ; The seed of the new in the shell of the old

April 25, 2017

The shaking away of irrelevant structures does not make Mars by way of the Sun moving through Aries very happy.

Rather it is a vulnerable experience that evokes a kind of irritable defensiveness due to a perception real or imagined of being threatened.

Within the agony & distress of a Uranus Mars contact via transit, one must surrender to the chaos while seeking to allow some deep moment of  self awareness to unfold….And it will.

In seeking the teaching, by means of a magnificently orchestrated conglomeration of disruptive chaos….the chains of inner bondage are broken.

Honoring this process however unattractive it is, will then grant inner communication of the self with the self….

“Just like two primordial lovers, once created our Sun” – Essra Mohawk-

 

 

The Neptune Journey; Surrendering To the Extraordinariness Of The Ordinary 

February 22, 2017

The experience of unbridled anxiety of which I am aware of that many people have been experiencing lately is what I would like to reflect on here. via the affect that planet Neptune in its astrological lens supports our lives and or challenges our experience of living.

I myself relate to the experience of  burning pinprick anxiety, fears and concerns coupled with a sense of walking through water, while feeling extremely pressured to reach to the other side…..still somehow moving too slow, impeded by the heaviness of walking through onrushing unexpected water.

One can believe that one is drowning and perhaps even dying a slow death….

Neptune, the solvent as in the disolution of boundaries  and ones own will and the purveyor of all things mystical and  transcendent. That which requires surrender, surrender, surrender and yes relentlessly more surrender.

The question is surrender to what?  I mean let’s face it, if one surrenders to the challenge at hand by fusing, uniting and merging with the problem or challenge then like a dolphin seeking its human master, your life becomes the sacrificed. Then the wisdom and consciousness so needed and indeed required in order to find and create the solution is dissolved along with your selfhood. Not the way to go. Not the ultimate journey Neptune has in store for you. Since the teachings of Neptune ultimately, I do believe, is about falling in love and revelling in consciousness itself. Yes, the love of consciousness for the sake of conscious awareness.

My own experience of Neptune transiting my tenth house, the house of career and Ones place in society, has taught me of this of which I am communicating to you my dear reader of this communication. I wad finding myself making movements forward in my work and business and then like chalk marks in a rainstorm all efforts seemed to disappear, filling me with the painful pinprick anxiety and a lethargy of despair. Fortunately for me my studies in Contemplative Psychotherapy and my refusal to be defeated guided me towards the ultimate deliciously Divine gift offered by Neptune. Hence, I was able to open to hearing the wisdom of Neptune’s boundless teachings, guidance and gentle prodding.

That is to be aware of the challenge, to hold it with love, compassion and mercy. You see that when the detachment to the problem, mood, state of mind or what have you with conscious awareness of the situation present, then Neptune’s misty cosmic guidance becomes available via a thought form that enters your consciousness and becomes the answer.

When worked with in this way, then the  dance of Neptune is allowing a rerouting to occur. Then the anxiety, suffering and pain is not for naught.
Please do believe me when I say that I do not believe in suffering for sufferings sake, however I do suppose that  a Neptune transit seeks to present oneself with the oogeling of anxiety, doubt, fear and pain to open us up to the faith, trust and respect for our own process through which the presence of Neptune either natally or through transit offers or forces us, (however, one chooses to view it), through its misty, foggy, vague journey.

You see as I continued on in spite of feeling discouraged, exasperated  filled with hopeless despair, grief and anger that this kind of experience should even be. That then somehow, some way an awareness came upon me from deep within so that then even then like a dying ember of a flame , I just breathed upon that tiny spark of hopeful ember so that the spark of that  dying glow became enlivened into a glowing bright new flame of awareness.

As the renowned and cherished storyteller and Jungian therapist Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks of in her tale , “Warming The Stone Child”, it only takes a breath of air or gentle wind to bring a dying ember back to glowing brightly and to become once again that warming creative practical healing fire. With my own experience and my work with others,  I find that that indeed this is so.  The sensitive, compassionate caring concern and wonder does seem to bring about the deep lessons, gifts  and rich wisdom that Neptune empowers us to master.

Through deep compassionate awareness, I am beginning to understand that this damp, misty, heavy yet quite ethereal energy of Neptune is in all actuality opening new pathways of direction and flow….in its heavy misted shadow it is beckoning a shining silver lining almost as a gentle zephyr. In its seemingly all evasive pervasiveness Neptune is always gently guiding and directing  an organization and orientation that One could ever have known had One’s experience not been so clouded and made heavy, vague and nebulous in the veil of doubt and sorrow brought about by  Neptunes influences within the birthchart and upon One’s Soul.

After all as Khalil Gibran so powerfully expressed it ;

“Vague and nebulousis the beginning of all things, but not their end,

Life, and all that lives, is conceived in the mist and not in the crystal.

That which seems most feeble and bewildered in you is the strongest and most determined.

The veil that clouds your eyes shall be lifted by the hands that wove it,

And the clay that fills your ears shall be pierced by those fingers that kneaded it.

And you shall see

And you shall hear.

Yet you shall not deplore having known blindness, nor regret having been deaf.

For in that day you shall know the hidden purposes in all things,

And you shall bless darkness as you would bless light.”

So seems to be the prophetic journey of Neptune.

Smooth, happy sailing and delightful deep diving All!
