What the Heck is Lucid Awakening?

What the heck is Lucid Awakening?

There’s something my original Sifu for Qi Gong told me nearly 13 years ago that’s been stuck in my brain since then.  He talked about how our dream state was really our awakened state and this life as we know it, was our dreamtime.

That led me to explore lucid dreaming for a number of years and a more intense focus on meditation as way to connect to that amazing zone that the subconscious reaches while we sleep.

But lately, it’s been clear to me that the time has come to connect to that infinite being that we all are, while we’re actually awake. The flip side of the lucid dreaming state.

The ability to connect to our infinite and incredibly powerful self while we experience the physical body in the present moment.

I’ve always known this was possible, but experiencing it right here right now is an added plus.

Instant creation.

No more karma, just a direct connection to infinity.

Maybe it sounds crazy still.

And maybe you’d like to join us for one of our weekend retreats where we’ll be exploring such questions…

Tomorrow is one such day so we’ll be incommunicato for the day.

We’re doing the retreat as a silent meditation for the day as most humans are still using their brains and trying to figure out things that have very few words and have even which really isn’t possible when you’re entering the quantum field of full lucid awakening.

The silence and peace that nature bestows on this special place makes it quite easy to slip into a day of exploring the inner workings of consciousness and the mind and the body and it can all come together as one.

That’s the good news.

The challenge is that the mind often still wants to work overtime and “figure things out”. Yet that’s often just not possible. The human brain is designed to be your supercomputer but it’s not able to comprehend the immensity of “infinity and beyond”…  It’s not able to comprehend the depth and breadth of our infinite consciousness. So giving it a task to do like watching the breath or focusing on one point has been a common meditation technique.

Lucid awakening takes these concepts one step further by integrating your infinite conscious self within the parameters of your limited body and simply “awakening” to that moment.  It’s already happening.

You already ARE that.

Lucid awakening is simply allowing yourself to see feel and explore those feelings through the eyes of your infinite self while noticing the finite self “doing and being”.

In any case, we’re having fun exploring.

What Is Enlightenment?

Sunrise through black sky

 

Soul Family Newsletter:

What is enlightenment today?

For so long, thousands of years actually, people believe enlightenment was something that was not really attainable. Only the buddha’s and Christ’s of this world could attain it.

Or it somehow accidentally or magically happened after decades of mediation.

But today, we know better.

The entire planet has grown and is vibrating at a much higher level than ever before and we have even more opportunities than ever before to connect with our highest, most infinite self.

And that to me is the essence of enlightenment.

I call it lucid awakening.

My sifu for qi gong always told me that our “real life” was in our dreams, when we can fly, jump over tall buildings in a single bound, breathe underwater, or travel to the far corners of the universe, and that this thing that we call being awake was actually our conscious mind in it’s limited state.

I’ve been reflecting on those thoughts for over 14 years now since I first heard them.

And the most recent 2 day silent meditation we did here, we completely changed up the formula. Instead of doing an exponential form of vipassanna meditation in 3 days instead of 10, we did what I now call 2 days of lucid awakening.

To me that means allowing the power and connectedness of your infinite self to fully engage and awaken your limited human self.

What?

Your limited human self?

Yes, we can all understand the physical limitations of our bodies, and appreciating those limitations more and more with every passing year, and we can understand the mental limitations of forgetting things or not understanding the immensity of what infinite means.

It’s clear that our physical bodies are only here temporarily.

But your infinite self is here for the joy ride to experience what limited feels like.

To experience what love feels like.

To experience what pain feels like.

It’s our choice to decide how intense we would like these experiences and which ones we’d like to focus on now.

And I tell you, it’s our choice to decide how often we choose to feel our unlimited infinite self and how often we choose to feel the weight and burden of the whole world on our shoulders.

It’s actually quite a simple process, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

And it all starts with the knowingness that it’s even possible.

That not only is it possible but it’s highly likely that you can connect more and more often to your infinite self and feel the lightness and extreme joy where you infinite self lives (which is and has always been within you.)

So, as much as I’ve been a world traveller from a young age and enjoy visiting many sacred places around the planet, the true essence of who we are and what we are can only be found when we go deep inside.

Just one moment can transform your life forever.

Just one awknowgement of our true nature as this infinite powerful, beautiful being who’s travelled through the illusion of time and space to be right here, right now.

For this life is the illusion, the dream state.

The illusion that we aren’t enough.

The illusion that we aren’t already enlightened.

The illusion that we can’t BE without “work being done us” or without some guru teaches us.

The massive energies that seem to flow at this time of year are heightened by the fact that Christmas and the holidays can an emotional time of year.

The energetic floodgates from the Universe are in full flow.

We’ll be honoring those energies this week with a recording.

The actual summer solstice will be at 3:28 am on the 22nd of Dec 2017

Thursday 21st Dec 2017 @11:58 am in New York.

Also, we’re thrilled to have Steph Freeman here to conduct a very special mandala workshop weekend here before she heads back to the Mainland. It’s a fabulous way to boost your creativity in everything you do in the New Year.

And we’ve extended the Early Bird price of $299 including all meals and shared uplodging .

This looks to be an epic event! Please let me know if you can make it. We need to finalize #’s soon.

And, we’ve been kicking around some new ideas for the essences and we’re introducing a new essence for dogs called “PAWS: K9 Stress Relief Therapy”. This came about because Blaze our beautiful blue healer cross hates thunderstorms. It’s as tough as nails if he’s chasing a wallaby but come thunder and lightening he’s crazy scared.

And poor little Cleo, our miniature Shiatzu Malteze dog hates getting her hair cut (a perpetual job of trying to keep the buzzies at bay) and tremples the minute she sees scissors in my hand.

So we’ve been experimenting with ways to help our 4 legged friends just like the AWE helps our soul family.

Stay tuned for more updates.

We haven’t released it yet, as we’re still in the testing phase.

Love to all of our Soul Family and their furry friends,

Blon & Grandmother Sue

Music For the Forests

Note from Junitta Valak:

cartoon image of bright trees in forest

I hope that this linked Flier inspires you to also have Gatherings to show appreciation to all Forests around Gaia. We are losing ancient Forests at an alarming rate, these are our carbon ‘factories’ and we are destroying what we need most to battle Climate Change.

I wonder how many of us actually think when we pick up a book, read a magazine/newspaper, write a letter on paper that a tree has been sacrificed for our needs?

It would be great if someone could invent a substitute for wood.
Trees are sentient beings that have feelings – check out ‘ Supernature by Lyall Watson, The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird, Communications With Nature by Michael Roads, Plants Are Like People by Jerry Baker, The Secret Powers of Plants by Brett Bolton, any of the Findhorn publications and one of the latest books to be released is The Hidden Life Of Trees by Peter Wahlleben. This excellent one is available from our local Foster Library.

Our Music For The Forest on the 19th in our Sth Gippsland Forest is intended to reach out and connect with all Forests on Gaia, it will be the microcosm of the macrocosm. We will be playing, singing and dancing our thanks to the trees that day.

Maybe you are wondering how we will do this? Did you know that Forests have WWW ie a world wide (underground) web called mycelium, this stretches out for miles, there is an enormous one in China that goes for hundreds of miles. Think of this when you nest go mushrooming.

Just sitting under a tree can be very peaceful so next time you do this, give the Tree a hug by way of thanks to all it gives us including all the animals, birds and insects that call the tree HOME.

Remembrance Day 11th Nov 2017

Can you believe it??? 11/11 already!
Seems like it was only yesterday that we were tuning in for the amazing energies coming through the 11/11 star gate last year!

It is happening again!

More dynamic energies are arriving that will help you to align more easily through the 11/11 gateway.

More…

The energies this time are speaking directly to our crystalline bodies, even if they are still in the formation stage.

 To prepare for these energies we should be more aligned with the crystal we are becoming, and yes, we can program ourselves as we do our own crystals.

How do we do this? 

Just by listening, sending yourself love and happiness, and most importantly respect. 

 We are becoming a living breathing crystal, how cool is that ??Plenty of cleansing, being out under the full moon, and talking to your crystalline body.

Oh by the way, you can program your crystal to heal, something that I recommend that you do, especially during the 11/11 gateway.

So tune in etherically at your own time at

11 am on the 11th of November 2017

and receive all the downloads to your quantum being.

Make sure you set aside some quiet time for this!

To assist you, here’s the replay from the global healing meditation.

This has always been a very special day for us as on the 11/11/2009 (another 11) we were in the Great Pyramid of Giza watching magic happen…

What can you do

What Can YOU Do With Your Monkey Mind?

What's Your Monkey Mind Doing Right Now?


​What can you do with your crazy monkey mind?

Have you ever felt like there were a million thoughts in your a head, a million things you had to do and all you wanted to do is make it all stop?

Make it all go away and be in that blissful state of not having to do BE or feel anything you didn’t want to do BE or feel?

Yet everytime you try to make all those thoughts go away, they just keep getting louder and louder and even more insistent that you pay attention to them.

Kind of like the screaming baby on an airplane.  If you focus on it, it gets louder and louder.

So how do you make the incessant stream of thoughts go away?

I get asked this question a lot.

And the answer is simple.

You don’t.

You have to stop trying to MAKE them go away and start accepting them for what they are.

Simply thoughts.

Your thoughts are NOT you.

And You are NOT your thoughts.

You are an incredible infinite being who came here to be a human for a while.  For some of us it’s a long while, for some of us, it’s only a short while.  But the older I get the more I realise just how brief our time here is no matter how many years show on a birth certificate.

So what can you do with all of those swirling ideas, thoughts, fears and inhibitions?

Accept that we all have them.

Accept that they are not you and they are simply thoughts.

You can choose to focus on them or you can choose to watch them fade away until the next thought pops up.  

You can choose to watch this cycle and observe it.

Notice it without going down the rabbit hole of following it down every path it tries to lead you down.

Mindfulness meditation is the fastest way I’ve found to remember that I am not my thoughts.

And that alone is often enough to pull me out of depressive thoughts because who wants to get stuck down that rabbit hole?

We all go there sometimes, but the issue is, we don’t have to stay there.

We can choose to remember who we truly are.

Perfectly imperfect beings who came here to love, laugh and enjoy being a human.

The next question most people ask me is “How can I find time of meditation? I’m too busy already.”

And yes, that is a massive problem in our society.  

Everyone’s busy.

Too busy.

Too busy to remember to love, laugh and enjoy being a human.

Too busy trying to be more productive.

Too busy to call.

Too busy to write (oh, not that outdated thing! Yes, handwriting is a lost art that is due for a revival.)

Kevin Kelley the famous author and futurist said “Productivity is for robots.”  And I ask you, are you acting like a robot in your own life?  Have you traded busy for happiness?

How do you stop all the insanity?

How do you stop all the swirling thoughts of every more things you need to do before you sleep?

Mindfulness can take just a moment.  

It’s about creating a moment where you focus exactly on what you want to focus on.  Perhaps it’s your breath.  Perhaps it’s a point in the distance as you gaze out into the ocean.  Perhaps it’s looking at a flickering candle flame to help you remember to breathe. Perhaps it’s a moment when you breathe in with intention and choose which thought you would like to focus on for that moment.

Just that moment.

One moment in time.

One moment to BE.

Wrapping it Up in Rapa Nui

Sue's insights into Rapa Nui

My amazing earth keeping adventure on Rapa Nui.

It all began when I was given the words, "It all begins and ends in Easter Island." (Rapa Nui)

IThis coming Wednesday, we'll be doing a live facebook broadcast at 3 PM Hobart time about my adventures in this very special place.

There are so many sacred sites around the planet that have been overused or misused and I have been called to balance out the energies.

Some of this comes from people with good intentions but not enough wisdom to understand exactly what they're doing.  Too many people are also doing it for their own ego and personal gain while believing they are doing the right thing.

So how do you know if what you feel called to do is the right thing for that site and the planet?

We'll be talking about all kinds of stuff on the webinar.  

I hope you can join in!

How to Prepare For The Upcoming Mega Eclipse in America

Total solar eclipse

 

It looks like the solar eclipse crossing over America on the 21st of Aug 2017 (4:55 am Sydney time) has the entire world in a tizzy.

On Aug 21, 2017 the solar eclipse will cast a shadow across America that is 67 miles wide (108 km wide)  that will cross through 10 states, beginning in Oregon and ending in South Carolina.

It won’t be light yet here in Australia at 4:25 am on the 22nd of Aug, so, we won’t be able to see this amazing event, but London may have a shot at it. At it occurs there at 7:25 pm on the 21st of Aug 2017

The full eclipse will last approx 2 min and 40 sec and a strange corona and partial eclipse will be available for the entire North American continent.

The other American states will have 60-97% coverage.

This is the first sweep in 99 years that is moving west to east: 9:06 am in Oregon, 1: 03 pm in Columbia SC 4:25 am  Sydney Time

Everything has been predicted to follow in the weeks and months after this event; from CERN creating a black hole destroying our Universe to Aliens invading the Earth (oops sorry, that was just in my dream), to massive earth quakes and volcanic activity that renders the earth dark on the 23rd of Sept 2017, to cosmic realignment of all beings being upgraded to the next DNA pattern.

What will really happen?

I don’t know.

I have no clue.

I’m surely hoping that my dreams of global destruction for the last 5 nights in a row are only dreams and I just need to get onto the whole creating new world’s bit.  Or maybe that is underneath all of the messages here somehow.

In any case,  take a look through some of the links below and see what resonates with you!

I for one will absolutely be spending my day on Sunday here at the Vortex aligning and co-creating with my higher self for a day of silence.

And I highly encourage each and every one of you to take a moment now to find your own quiet time if you can’t be here with us personally.

All indications are pointing to the fact that you will be doing any final releasing of old crap quickly and the degree of pain/pleasure to follow depends on how quickly you will release anything that no longer serves your highest good.

And it’s absolutely about setting aside real time for you to be silent and go deep within to continue the co-creation process.  For I don’t belief this is doom.

John Hogue reminds me that the apocalypse means a “disclosure of knowledge or revelation” enlightenment in ancient greek.  So what’s really going on here?

I BELIEVE THIS IS A MEGA OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE THE NEXT CHAPTER.

This is not a time to panic, it’s a time get back to your favourite meditation spot!

Although, for the fun of it, here are 6 ridiculously different theories of what’s going on right now…

What we do know for fact:

Please decide for yourself!

Here are a bunch of contradictory links.

An astrological analysis of the “Great American Solar Eclipse”

 

John Hogue  thinks there will be unprecedented Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and the Antichrist revealed  

 

Here’s a link to Bible references relating the frantic warnings:

 

The Earth will be destroyed by planet Nibiru

 

Here’s in-depth article by Tyb about the upcoming events:

Astrological Overview of the August & the Mega Lemurian Eclipse

By James Tyberonn

The Month of August is literally teeming with an astonishing amalgam of major astrological events, occurrences of incredibly deep impact. Major astronomers, astrologist and seers  are celebrating the phases of the Tandem Mega-Eclipses, lauding the event impacts, and speculating on the influences of the truly rare amalgam of gravitational vibratory mixtures created.

 

Beginning with the window of these energies, there will a potent Lunar Eclipse, a Total Solar Eclipse, a potent cometesque Meteoric event (The Perseids Meteors)  joined by be five planets in retrograde.  This extraordinary period is hi-lited by the rare west to east movement of a mega solar eclipse, originating in the Pacific regions of ancient LeMuria, and will bathe much of North America in a visible spectacle ranging from a path of 100% totality to 90-80-70 percent in the southern parameters of Canada  and USA. 

However, let us be clear, whether visible or not, the incredible influence of this event will absolutely affect the entire planet.

 

This is undoubtedly be a very potent scenario, and although many may feel, initially as if lost, stuck in molasses, and out of sync…not ‘yourself’. This combination of five retrograde planets and the meteoric showering offers perhaps the greatest opportunity in centuries , and certainly the greatest in the post 2012 ‘New Earth’ era to make prompt major changes. The Lunar Eclipse phase will combine with the Solar Eclipse in a unified field embellished by the Perseids meteoric bathe, and will alter the usual effects of the retrograde. The Mercury retrograde and Saturn retrograde will offer and exquisite energy of codes that properly embrace provide and a unique ‘once-in-a -lifetime’ opportunity for noble intent  co-creation.  Therefore it is a valuable time to embrace meditating focally, to meditate in unison and in individuality for removing obstacles and focusing on ‘highest good. Meditating in this phase is exponentially more capable of manifesting goals into 3d reality. That is because the eclipses and amalgam of energies are literally flooding the planet with fertile units of life force. The units of life force, of Akash will be maximized to an unimaginable degree in powernodes, and to a higher degree in all points of the planet.

 

Of course, we are in a phase of unprecedented cleansing, and these astonishing gravities and extreme energies will be incorporated into the overall ‘astrological crucible’, in which all unresolved issues will percolate to the surface.   You may in such phases feel like the world is going mad, with you included in the overwhelming spin.  But this phase while relentless & exasperating on one level, can also be extraordinarily prolific, if approached properly , in providing resolutions of  karmic issues, in making new beginnings and can result in a massive transformation and quantum leap in the higher evolution of humanity in mass, and individually in your life.

 

Make no mistake, this phase is extraordinary, and will influence the entire planet. New beginnings, new life can be spawned , for the Universe is aware of what is occurring, and if approached in high intent, it will plant the seeds of the coming Golden Age. But as always, intent matters in the planet of free will. You must be the change. If one becomes fixed in conflict or anger, and the aura is fractured, it can also lead to eruptions of spewing negativity.

 

In this phase, Metatron tells me that the entire earth is being bathed in codes of the coming Golden Age. The Earth will be upshifted. The intensity is affecting the magnetic of the earth and the ionic ration. New Chakras are being amplified & activated. Truly this is a benchmark leading to 2038. But again, it is an anomalous energy that can cut either way. Where you focus will be amplified, either for the positive or the negative , on the planet of Duality, the University of Earth.  

 

The retro planets are not in their usual attributes, as these too are coded, and have purpose, heavily influenced by the rare  eclipses. Especially the west to east LeMurian eclipse of August 21. I find this to be a grand time of shift. How it expresses itself in your life, is up to you, but it is a wonderful opportunity for bettering life.

 

    When a planet is in retro-flow, its energetics ‘flip-flop’ & are turned inward and their effect becomes far more individually subjective, and much more unpredictable.  Retrograde transits in planets do not necessarily indicate good or bad, but they almost always bring drama. Of course, the effects will vary to differing degrees with the individual, but it is a time in which unexpected change often occurs, and emotions can be de-stabilized, with extreme highs and lows. Retros change the patterned flow, and break up ‘normal’ routines.  They can be considered as a forced slow-down, a testing pause, which on the optimal over view, offer a time of contemplation and recalibration. Retrogrades force one to re-look at situations and examine the results of attitude, thoughts, habits and actions.

 

There is a crystalline change taking place, and both the Arkansas Crystal Vortex and the Brazilian Crystal Vortexes will be teeming with crytsals upshift thru the December solstice, and the coming 7 meteor cascades of the latter trimester of 2017.

 

The sum energy can be greater than its individual parts. So it is very important to understand the challenges, characteristic particularities and pending temperaments of five planets all in pseudo back motion at the same time. By being aware of the anomalies it will help you realize why things may be out of sorts, and what precautionary steps may be taken to help you get through the sense of disjointedness that may occur in the gravity of the amalgamated irregularities. 

 

It is also important to understand that when multiple planets are in retrograde at the same time, there is an over-bleed commingling and an intense amplification effect in the coalescent joining. Therefore the combined result of the specific peculiarities, will be more pronounced & tangibly forceful. From early August 5th  thru August 23rd the  intensity is at apex, you will be getting 8 impacts  the price of one, so hang on to your hats….you are entering the Cosmic Crosshairs!

Auric solidarity is more vulnerable & can be surrendered in the emotional lows. In this ‘intense confusing’ frequencial phase, it is essential to keep emotions intact, avoiding temper outbursts, hypercriticism, conflicts and depression. You must guard your thoughts, and be the wise steward of your mental focus.

 

A brief bullet point of Do’s and Don’ts in this period:

 

  • Do NOT : Engage conflicts, Fall Into Apathy, Feel Disempowered, Over React, Over Criticize, Do NOT Focus on Fear or Anger
  • Do: Focus on Highest Good, Visualize Change for the Better, Express Hope and Joy, Maintain the Aura, exercise, Yoga, Cleanse, Take Saunas, Meditate, Evaluate, Focus on Positive Change, Wear an Amethyst and Lapis Lazuli, Examine your own life, code of ethics and exercise integrity. Visit power-node sites if possible.

 

Astronomical gravities are absolutely real, and you will feel the results, whether or not you believe in astrology. For those of you that do accept the veracity of such patterns, we are preaching to the choir. But keep in mind that human will is greater than any astrological force. And by knowing what astro-weather is in the forecast, it is easier to avoid the pitfalls. And by knowing the upside, and understanding the mechanics and physics of this amazing energy, you can change the world you live in.

 

August 2017 – 2 Eclipses + 5  Planetary Retrogrades & Mega Meteor Shower !

 

August Retrogrades:

  • Mercury- August 12 to September 5, 2017
  • Saturn-April 6 to August 25, 2017
  • Uranus- August 3, 2017 to January 2, 2018
  • Neptune- June 16 to November 22, 2017
  • Pluto- April 20 to September 28, 2017

 

  • Total Lunar Eclipse – August 7
  • Total Solar Eclipse – August 21

 

  • Perseids Meteor Showers Maximum – Aug 11-13

 

 

Mercury Retrograde: All planetary retrogrades have aspects that generally apply to all signs. Mercury influences communication and travel, and in retrograde phases, these can be adversely effected. Flights may be delayed, baggage may be lost, and misunderstandings can occur. I have noted that computers, internet services and mobile devices can be a bit more prone to glitches and interruptions in such timings. Patience and attention to detail can be stepped up in this retrograde to help deal with & help prevent the depth of such issues should they occur.   Mercury retrogrades also have a capacity to bring you back to earth, & offer a grounding aspect. But there is a fine line of demarcation separating coming back to ‘reality’ and over reaction into overly cautious worry going into knee-jerk fear. It is an important time to consider where you are, a time to take stock and measure, but avoid throwing out the baby with the bathwater. This can be a good time to slow down, contemplate, meditate and internalize. Make time for a calculated thoughtful over-view in order to decide how to move forward, organize and communicate more effectively.

 Recommended Gemstone for Mercury Retrograde – Lapis Lazuli

 

Saturn Retrograde Saturn rules life purpose. Karma, structure, order and the way in which one  conducts their affairs are all ruled by the ringed planet. During the remaining days of Saturn’s 2017 retrograde flow, expect the unexpected. Be prepared.  Unsettling surprises, frustrations and slow-downs may occur on a weekly basis. Effective time management even for the most organized people may seem impossible. Projects that seemed online may get sidetracked by the pop-up of unforeseen tasks and unresolved issues of the past. In this phase you may fall into self-doubt, and feel you are off track.  But this time can be wisely use to evaluate what is serving your highest life purpose, and what is not, by revealing your inner thoughts, defensive reactions, psychological structures and limiting parameters. Recommended Gemstone for Saturn Retrograde – Amethyst Ring & Azurite pendant.

 

Uranus Retrograde : Uranus retrograde motion in this phase serves to reveal your obstacles and allow one to see clearly how these mal-influence self and others. It can also internalize the somewhat unsettling and disruptive impact repercussions of Uranus. Of course,  you may sense a rather shocking or upsetting impulsiveness or unsettling. But this can and must be redirected, as internal instability can lead to anxiety  or illogical reactions that fracture the aura.  Uranus retrograde by position and aspect shows the areas of life, or the personality traits and behaviors, which specifically need attention & corrective extra development. The optimum Uranus nature is intuitive, ingenious and original. A balanced healthy Uranus can be a bit  eccentric yet comfortable in self-expression. The aim is to be yourself while not upsetting the status quo. Erratic behavior or unreliability holds you back. Such traits could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Uranus retrograde phases, until you make the necessary internal changes. You must avoid the ego imbalance of being the ‘know it all’ and focus on self rather than trying to aggrandize self, in this phase.

 

Neptune Retrograde: The phase of the 2017  Neptune retrograde will in the up-side allow you to examine your connection with Spirit & with Creator  Source, in all its forms, realized and un-manifested and manifested, while surrendering the illusory limits of time and space. In 2017 it serves well to see the errors, yet on the downside it can, if not properly expressed or confronted, lead to greater illusion. Pray for clarity, vision, and go deep, and you can in this unusual amalgam gain rare lucid insight into you shortcomings and make positive change. In relationships, Neptune retro can exaggerate unwarranted or false hopes, and allow those seeking romantic liaisons, or business partnerships to become a bit delusional. For expectations can be falsely amplified & fed if they are unrealistic. Stay grounded.   

 

Pluto Retrograde: Pluto retrograde lasts until  September 28, 2017. The transitory retrogrades of the outer 3 planets are often far less intensely felt than the retros of the inner planets, Mercury thru Jupiter. But in this phase of 2016 with 6 planets in retro, Pluto will be felt far more in this combined energy amalgam. This year’s Pluto retrograde will absolutely tug at you, in a more overt and rather unforgiving crucible, in deep exploration of your inner truth. You may have episodes of low self-esteem in Pluto retrograde, a tendency to concentrate on guilt and mistakes you have made in the past. This can be excruciating, but can be optimally managed by purging what does not serve you. This is an important timing for prioritizing and re considering life purpose and realigning appropriately to your divine self. Recommended Gemstone for Pluto Retrograde – Rotate Azurite With Lapis Lazuli. Only use Crystalline Natural Azurite for meditation in this phase, afterward wear Lapis Lazuli

 

Summary:

 

The ongoing planetary retrogressions have many complex meanings, not just one, but many nuances. This timing is intricately embellished with intrigue and suspense. The August  2017 flux of 5 retrogrades is potentially teeming with unexpected surprises, and the planets may act in very atypical fashions, in unusual ways. No doubt many astrologers will consider this time to be one in which major global events may occur. My focus in this article is to emphasize the personal effects on an individual level. I would be remiss not to mention that auric maintenance is requisite during this time of mass planetary retrogrades and  this intense micro retro phase is  occurring within the macro 7 year phase of crucible astrology. It is easy to get overwhelmed. All unresolved energy is surfacing across the planet. It is a time in which the world seems to be going mad. Remember that anytime one falls into emotional lows, or negative emotions of fear, anger or apathy, such emotions will fragment the auric field and disrupt auric circuitry. The result is energy bleed, and loss of grounding. Negativity can more easily attach to an open aura, and lead one into anxiety, fatigue, and illness and into downward spirals of depression.

 

So to re-emphasize in summary, the present astro gravities are such that any worry, any fear, and any anger may be unduly amplified…. and potentially blown out of proportion. That however, does not mean that self-evaluation in areas of erroneous behavior, unproductive goals and misaligned relationships are not to be carefully reviewed. Rather it means that you should ensure that the inner evaluation be made from a positive creative stance.   It is essential you do not allow yourself to fall into a guilt ridden depression and spiral downward into self-persecution, hopelessness and apathy. It is important to avoid negative focus, to keep a constructive attitude and make a concerted effort to secure and maintain a balanced & positive attitude. And that will require wisdom & effort!

 

There will be a sense of uncertainty, confusion and a tendency of doubt. It is a time in which logic is somewhat skewed & wrong decisions can seem right.   It is a time in which unwarranted angers can spring up, and unjustified feelings can seem justified. Avoid listening to naysayers, consider the source, and be cautious on whose advice you choose to hear. Be patient and do not force major decisions or burn any bridges!

 

Closing

 

The overall energy occurring is colossal, absolutely immense, but it must be understood and wisely utilized. But let me emphasize, this is a fantastic window of opportunity as long as you do not fall into ego imbalance, delusion  or frustration.  Make a concerted effort to think positive, exercise and meditate! As Edgar Cayce stated, human will is stronger than any astrological force. By being aware of astrological gravities it is easier to understand the surface tendencies related to them, and thus circumnavigate around and beyond them. And be aware that the mega eclipses, meteor showers, and retrogrades (and all astrological alignments) have a positive as well as concerning capacity. This phase is monumental is you use it in wisdom. “

Rapa Nui

As many of you know I recently visited Easter Island or Rapa Nuii .

The earthwork my friends and I did will have long range effects on the planet.

Spirit has asked me to share my experiences with all of you who are interested in what an Earth Keeper is and what kind of work we do.

I have also been asked to share many of my other experiences in the earth keeping Realm .

This means I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and visit many sacred sites.
