Push Me, Pull You: what lies just ahead

Let me jump right into it...we have a couple of events coming up in the next few weeks which will really help us to separate the wheat from the chaff, on a spiritual level, but it might feel like you're coming apart at the seams! If this is the case, give yourself permission to come apart, then take your cosmic needle-and-thread and sew yourself back up again!

The first event sees Mercury going direct this weekend...while we build momentum in the waning moon cycle, entering the Dark Moon phase. The second event is the arrival of Summer (Huzzah!) with Beltaine - nearly simultaneously with the next pulse of the Ninth wave, aka the "Second Night," which is going to resemble a prolonged waning moon period. To compare, the Mercury/waning moon "push-pull" is the minor event; the Beltaine/Second Night "push-pull" is the major event.
Basically, Mercury going direct and Beltaine are going to introduce dynamic, extroverted yang energy, against the waning moon and the "Second Night" pulse, which are going to have restive, introverted yin energy! Do not be surprised if you feel like you're being pulled in two different, and opposite, directions at once...because in a sense, that's exactly what's going to happen!

So what does this mean?
Globally, get ready for a matinee performance in the Theater of the Absurd. Things which have been slightly askew before are going to approach off-the-charts ridiculous. Bring your sense of humor and an extra-large tub of popcorn along for the show! (I prefer kettle corn myself. Yummy!) Personally, this will be a brilliant opportunity to look your private coterie of Shadows straight in their beady little eyes and stare them down. If you hold to your center, and allow nothing less then Complete Authenticity to prevail in your heart, they will blink first! This will make them much easier to be cleared from your system. This is going to be a time of great illusions rising to the surface, inside and out - and a great opportunity to shatter these illusions. Coyote is definitely getting ready to strut his stuff this Summer!
Along with clearing out your Shadows, this will also be a good time to play with your identity, your self-image. Have you been wanting to make a change in your life? This will be a good time to do so! Give away some books. Buy some books. Repaint your room sky blue, or hunter green. Listen to a different radio station. Go to a discount boutique and try on a few new fashions. Dye your hair. Get that tattoo. In other words, try something different and step outside your box. At the least, you might get a new perspective; at most, you may begin a complete makeover of yourself and your life! What have you got to lose, really?

Some of you will definitely feel like you're walking on the razor's edge for the next few weeks. If this occurs, breathe deeply and remember - this, too, shall pass. You will emerge on the other side of this, and things will look a lot brighter on the horizon. :-)


Information Potpurri

Heya, dedicated Lightworks and Curious Readers! I wanted to share a few things with everyone as we wind up Mercury retrograde and gear up for the Succulent Wild energies of Beltaine that are just around the corner!

First, I found a most excellent link that breaks down and explains, in Plain English, the energetic pulses that the (Mayan) Ninth Wave is bringing us. Basically, within the greater shift of Time, there are "tiny" pulses of energy that are nudging Earth and Her Children forward on the Ascension journey. (I put tiny in quotes because while each pulse might not be as all encompassing as, say, the Cosmic Tsunami was last year, they are no less impact*full as the Tsunami was!) I will be referring to the Information contained in this document as I continue to transmit on how the Star energies interact with the Earth energies, and vice versa.

Second, as I promised once upon a post, I have been shown a vision as to how the "new" energies will come to fruition in the Ascension journey, and replace the "old" ones: Consider the conscious, heart-centered communities that have formed, are forming, and will form as "seeds" being planted in the fertile soil of Mother Earth. See these seeds sprouting and growing as these communities grow in influence in popularity. Where two of these "spheres of influence" overlap, they won't compete with each other; rather, the spheres will merge and the influence of each community will unite and become magnified. Eventually, instead of seeing "bright spots in the Shadows," we will see "pockets of Shadow in a bright mosaic" - and these pockets of Shadow will shrink until they no longer exist. The best parts are, 1) there's no force involved in this evolutionary development, and 2) this process is already well underway. :-)

Finally, a dear local sister of mine recently created a Facebook event to encourage peeps to engage in a "global Ho'oponopono prayer" for our world leaders. (If you have no idea what ho'oponopono is, no worries, she explains it in her post.) Inspired by this, I took her idea with me on my daily "constitutional" walk - and some words assembled in my head that asked to be shared with everyone. So I'll leave y'all with this prayer...if you feel called to use it in your Prayer-Work, go for it. :-)

Let the Waters of Clear Insight flow through the minds of the leaders of the world.
Let these Waters wash away all old tribal illusions.
Let these Waters wash away all Shadow-muck, which has caused human evolu...tion to become slow and stagnant.
Let the Waters of Clear Insight wash clean the Vision of the leaders of the world, so they may see things As They Truly Are - and not as certain parties would prefer they be seen!

And, let the Fire of Brave Courage burn in the hearts of the leaders of the world.
Let this be free from being a firestorm that destroys wantonly; may it be tempered by the Waters.
Let this Fire bring light, heat, and comfort, as in days gone by.
Let this Fire stir the common ancestral memories of sitting by the hearth in the middle of the night; may these memories re-ignite Unity Consciousness in the leaders of the world.

Now, let the Waters of Clear Insight and the Fire of Brave Courage come together in the seat of the Voice of the leaders of the world
Let the Water and the Fire merge in Sacred Union; let this Union blossom in the Throat.
When the leaders of the world speak and act henceforth, let them speak and act for the Highest Good of All Beings, instead of just what will satisfy right now!

So Mote It Be - And So It Is!


Breathing into the Stillness

So how did that power boost work out for you? Still trying to find your bearings?
No worries in that case, for Mercury went retrograde on 3/30 and will stay retro for about three weeks. This  gives us an opportunity to breathe into the stillness, perhaps do a little Spring Cleaning of the Soul. Take the time over these next few weeks to re-center yourself, take up (or perhaps resume) a devotional practice, and get out into Nature to observe Her soothing rhythms of Life. Let yourself settle for a moment or two; give yourself the space to figure out what you're keeping and what you're releasing, what you're starting work on and what you're letting fall by the wayside. You do have permission to say, "I'm not going to finish" a project and let it go. Give yourself this permission, especially for anything that feels really stale or stagnant in your life at the moment. Clearing out the "old" stuff makes room for "new" and juicy stuff to emerge in your life...you know best what that looks and feels like. :-)
Let me take a moment to explain a little further what I mean by "devotional practice" - for me, it's anything that helps calm you, soothe you, ground you, and reconnect you to the Present Moment. It can be a traditional practice, such as praying, chanting, or meditating. It can also be something "outside the box," as it were: taking long bubble baths by candlelight, creating a collage or other work of art, sitting down with a journal and writing for ten minutes every day, going on a walk around the block. If you don't have a devotional practice, now is a good time to start one. If you have a devotional practice, why not try a different one and see how you like it?

All righty, back to the download...
Be extra gentle and mindful today, on All Trickster's Day (aka April Fools' Day). Take a moment to remember, it's not all that serious! Have yourself a laugh as you see illusions dissolve before you. This energy will carry through the weekend until the new moon on the 3rd.
Mercury stays retrograde until 4/23, going direct on...let's have a drum roll...Easter Sunday! The last week of April, from Easter Sunday until Beltaine (May 1st), is going to feature a new surge of energy coming our way; I'll be sharing that Information a bit closer to time. In the interim, I've a book to work on and some chakra closets to clean out - along with a duck pond to sit by and some nature trails to walk.
Breathe easy...we're rewriting the Story as we speak! :-)
