Litebeing’s Change Challenge

What light bulb flashes have you received from the Quantum Field?

 

September is upon us and it has been almost six months since my State was on lock down and my job went remote. You all know how the rest went down. While it does not feel like a typical Fall season to me, it DOES feel right to introduce a new blogging challenge!

Litebeing Chronicles has held a yearly blogging challenge every year except 2019. For some reason, I was not inspired and I let it go. At this point inspiration has taken root and I am excited to propose this challenge to all my faithful readers and writers. We have had such a fun time with the various challenges and I know we can all use more fun in our lives.

So here’s the theme: How have you changed internally? Can you share some new thoughts, ideas, projects, attitudes that have sprung up as a result of your evolution? This challenge is about describing how you have integrated the lessons from this “unprecedented time” and how you have seen your unique transformation unfold.

Before writing this up, I drew a Four card spread for the Pisces Full Moon. The Judgment Card came up as the final card in the spread, which is a summary of the reading.

Meaning : Time for a major and necessary change in life: often welcome, but frightening because of its magnitude. Confidence in this change.

Clearly this card validated that this is the Divine Time for this theme to be executed.

 

This will be a very low maintenance project. I do not want this to be a chore. Trust me on this!

Instructions:

1- Choose a date between now and 12-31-2020.

2-Write about your insights, ideas, and evolution.

3-Contact me with the date of your choice to post on your blog or site. Give me your name, the date and the link to your site. I will track the dates as I  have done with past challenges.

4-On the date you have chosen, publish you post and link back to this page, mentioning Litebeing Chronicles Change Challenge. That’s it, simple right?

 

Odds and Ends:

Life will go on without a cute challenge badge, however if you want to create one, please contact me in the comments below, or here.

Please share with your friends and/or social network. I always welcome new people to the party.

You have 3 months to write, but please do not take three months to decide. I want this to be lowkey, but I also want to remind you that time is flying by at warped speed.

Please speak to me if you have any questions about the theme. This is not a challenge about the pandemic or masks vs no masks, etc. This IS a challenge about owning and expressing how this journey has transformed you inside and out.

To illustrate, I will give you an example from my life: As a psychic human, I figured out at some point that prediction times are irrelevant because thought and form occur outside of linear time. I understood this and I talk and write about it regularly. And yet, I now grasp this at an entirely new level. My awareness has expanded. Case in point, a few days ago I was re-reading part of my travel journal to Europe from 1991. There was a few pages left over from the trip and I used them to continue with my routine journal notes. I was interested in seeing what happened that year because I have not read this journal in decades. This tiny purple ( of course ) book was in a desk drawer, mostly forgotten. I quickly scanned the pages, looking for anything that might be significant in the present moment. I saw my reaction to a visit with a channel who I consulted with annually, either in a group or individually. She stated that the US government would fall apart. I wrote how I found this news scary. It is happening now, 29 years later! This revelation drove the point home that all timelines occur simultaneously and I am now truly “living this truth.”

I hope you are excited about participating in this blogging challenge. I have missed collaborating with all of you and am eager to hear about how you are growing and creating.

 

While composing this post, an old song from the Brady Bunch popped into my head, I enjoy the irony about showing a YouTube video about change set in the 1970s! If you listen to the lyrics you will see that they resonate with this new world of 2020.

Blame it on the Rain

A few minutes ago the title for this post came to me and it is perfect. Honestly, I have no one or no – thing to blame for my misfortune, but sometimes it is fun to regress a little and place the blame somewhere.  Today’s New Libra Moon has really turned out to be a bummer for me and I did not have any expectations. I do have hope that tonight may turn out to be lovely. But I want to write about how I am feeling right now. It seems like my latest round of job leads has been disappointing and misleading.  Just a week and a half or so ago I was feeling quite jubilant, in the flow and excited about two interviews. Then in the midst of this timeline another job that sounded even better emerged and the employer expressed interest in me. I even dreamed about telling someone about it last night, meaning it had remained with me in the astral.

All three jobs did require that I stuff myself in a box in terms of clinical approach. But they had remote work flexibility and decent pay and were happy to take someone without the LCSW. The two screening interviews I had last week were awkward and felt forced. One already wrote a rejection email. I am waiting to hear back from the other. The most interesting twist is about the third job, which has excellent pay, is very close to home and offers benefits and fulltime hours.

I was asked to answer a question about projecting myself three years into the future and I enjoyed that challenge. The other day I was informed I was going through to the next phase of the selection process. I was  asked to perform an online assessment to see if I would be a good fit. In the past I have had to do this once or twice with poor results. This time I was given the name of the instrument so I looked it up. I was curious how this test would influence their decision so I paid to take the test first myself and learn about how it works. I could not find a free test and considered it to be an investment. It was definitely interesting and echoed a little of my Myers Briggs profile. Today I was ready to take the test for the prospective employer and the code did not work. This seemed off but I attributed it to Mercury retrograde. I emailed the practice to tell them about the glitch so I could take the assessment. Half an hour later I get an email from an admin thanking me for my interest and telling me they hired someone else. What happened??

My mind went down a rabbit hole. I thought that maybe they knew I took the test already and that perhaps disqualified me. Or they accessed my results and decided not to move forward. Or it was a miscommunication.  Eventually the practice owner responded and said that the hiring process moved faster than expected and that she will keep my resume on file as they expect another vacancy in the winter. I do not know if I believe what I was told, but I need to let it go. I will be kind to myself and let my feelings move through me. While musing on this, I remembered something my Reiki teacher said recently about the second attunement she did for me. She received a message that my need to control situations usually makes them worse and that I must find a way to be in the flow. I really tried to control this assessment situation. I did not like being judged this way and wanted to “crack the code”. The irony here is that my test results revealed that I do a lot of research and preparation when I face a difficult problem.

So here you go.

In the midst of this dreary day I drove to the post office to mail my ballot. It was anticlimactic. I usually like to wait in line to vote and find this ritual energizing. But it is more convenient to go the mail – in route. I am not excited about this election, just three days before my 60th birthday ( a discussion for another day). I am not a Biden fan. I remember him from the Anita Hill fiasco during the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court hearings back in the nineties. I found him to be sexist and it bothered me. If I could choose, it would be Marianne Williamson or Bernie Sanders. I prefer authenticly messy people over ambiguous phony people. But I certainly don’t want to live in a reboot of Nazi Germany. I read that Trump’s first wife said he would often read Hitler’s speeches over and over. I could go on about the Con Man/ Mob Boss in Chief, but I am out of wine and do not want to worsen my mood.

This Libra New Moon is very challenging as it squares Mars and opposes Jupiter Saturn and Pluto. So it behooves me to watch my words a bit online and off. And yet, as I ponder my job search and this latest theme of trying to please others by showing up as the prototype they prefer, I really resent not being simply me! I do not have a “brand” and shy away from writers who are inauthentic in order to always stay on brand. This is not for me. I revere honesty and want to write from a place of vulnerability.

I may never get a chance to find out if I was right for that job that required an assessment, but I really would like to work somewhere with people who are more like me. Where are they? Who are they? I don’t know. Libra energy is harsh for me because it occupies my Solar 12th house and natal 8th house. These houses are messy and often contain hidden emotional baggage. I have no planets in Libra. I know some wonderful Libra folk like my advisor ( hey CL!)  and my niece but many Libra’s I have encountered have caused me much harm or frustration. It is what it is. We all have our strengths and our weak spots.

Controlling outcomes is one of my weaknesses and Scorpios love to control. Tomorrow is a new day and fortunately my moods tend to change quickly of late. Writing about my darkness is a cathartic relief. So now to bring some light I  will leave you with the song that inspired today’s title :

Writing ~ The Masterful Administration of the Unforeseen

3rd reblog in a row, yup! I like to find “random” posts as oracles and this post really resonates powerfully in 2020. Welcome to my new followers! I am grateful that you are part of the litebeing community. Please say hello and introduce yourself in the comments section. Thanks for being here. I will be back with fresh writing when inspiration meets energy and initiative. 🙂

No one can predict the future now. No one can make long- range plans. The best we can hope for, to quote Robert Bridges, is ” the masterful administration of the unforeseen.”  Ride the whirlwind. That’s the most we can do.
Arthur C. Clarke

This sage advice is found on page 150 of Walking on Alligators – A Book of Meditations for Writers by Susan Shaughnessy. I was led to open a random page from this book today and post it here. I have been thinking deeply about my writing process of late. I have wondered why some pieces come so easily to me , while others are so arduous and heavy. I have also noticed how grateful I am when opportunities appear to take my writing and this blog in new directions. For example, when TMA was looking on Facebook for bloggers to review the Music Issue, I had no idea I…

Musings – November Time Warp

Another day, another reblog. I am really missing my city at this time of year, fully open and alive. How we tend to expect that things will remain the same when we are younger. This is a true time warp since this post is almost 7 years old! Enjoy another post featuring my city where ” Bad Things Happen, – Not!”

litebeing chronicles

http://www.imageafter.com/

I cannot let the beginning of November go by without a proper post. All the recent posts on Samhain and this current astrological wild ride we are on have been incredibly inspiring and I devoured each one with delight.  Currently I have been rather moody and spacey and somehow surprised at all the emotions and circumstances that I cannot control. Yet I am actually surprised that anything surprises me anymore! That is the cosmic curve ball, that I am still unaware of so much, despite my heightened psychic acuity. Who knew?

Still, I adore November which was originally the 9th month on the Julian calendar. Makes sense right? After all, November literally means 9th month. The Julian year began on March 25th which is very close to the Spring Equinox. When the transition was made from the Julian to the Gregorian system, November became the 11th month. I prefer the original sequence…

Another Fall in Philadelphia

Hello litebeings, with the Mars square Pluto transit this morning, I learned that a friend of mine is seriously ill. She is so young and strong and this news makes no sense to me. No sense at all.

I drove to the store today and it became apparent that fall has arrived in Philadelphia. Slowly but surely the leaves are turning and gliding through the clear blue sky. I long for normalcy in this anything but typical year of 2020. Here is a reblog of my post about Philly traditions and shifting cycles of time.

litebeing chronicles

It is only fitting that I post about this Hall and Oates song on the first full day of fall, here in Philadelphia. This version with Diane Birch is from Live from Daryl’s House. I moved to this city to start the fall semester of my senior year at Temple University, so it is an anniversary theme of sorts. My trip to University City last week really reminded me of those first days of freedom and adventure in a new city and new state ( Though I did live in Reading , PA  as a child).

The first time I heard this song on the radio while living in Philly was very special to me because it was in early autumn. I told myself I would hear it every year on the radio as a way to usher in the season and mark my life in this amazing…

How to Navigate These Surreal Times

 

” You gotta learn how to zig when you wanna zag. ”  Wise words from my former  supervisor at the rehab where I worked. I use them all the time, talking myself down when I feel powerless in handling a situation. Most people would not call me flexible and when someone does, I feel like I have made a significant change. WP just gave me a good scare to reinforce the theme of today’s blog, acting as a catalyst for change. Some readers know I am not all that tech savvy. I  find it miraculous that I learned how to blog mostly on my own. But when WP unceremoniously switched me today to the Block Editor,  I was really stuck. After trying to figure it out , I became quite overwhelmed. Then I began to go into crisis mode, but  I went over to my reader and saw that the first blog in the feed was entitled Trust. That was my sign not to give up. I eventually found a way, albeit possibly temporarily, to still blog in Classic Mode. I also saw how fast my thoughts deteriorated into a catastrophic storyline.

Saturn

Saturn, pictured above, recently stationed direct on September 29th, signaling a return to progress and form. Let’s say this statement comes with some fine print. 2020 has been prophesied by many astrologers as a major game changer and the month ahead is no exception. Saturn and Pluto ( who stationed direct today October 4th) moving forward bodes well in general. But both planets are still dancing together with Jupiter in Capricorn and will be making several challenging squares to Mars retrograde in Aries and Sun in Libra. The encouraging news is that even with Mercury retrograding soon , all of the traditional malefics ( Mars, Saturn, and Pluto ) are in cardinal signs. Cardinal energy adds action and enthusiasm and agency, and we could all use that about now.

Pluto

These energies are very powerful and transformative. I have the big 3 ( Pluto Saturn and Jupiter) currently transiting my 12th house, which does not bode well for optimism, but does favor subconscious attitude readjustment. It also improves the connection with all that is nonsensory and energetic. I am happy to report that I have completed my Reiki I training. There is still much to absorb but I am really glad I achieved this goal. I am also excited that my art class begins on Tuesday. In addition I was able to manifest two job interviews this week that allow working remotely from home. It is possible that my high from completing my attunement and getting the interviews caused a flare up of my GI troubles. It is interesting that I recently read how Mars retrograde can cause health flare ups, which makes sense to me with natal Mars in the 6th house of health. Or it could have been faulty thinking that led to a setback. Or both.  Or neither.

Today I am feeling improved and excited for the first interview tomorrow. I am a bit out of practice, but I will remind myself how much I have to offer. Speaking of which, a recent email heading tonight eased my mind. The title said Offers Are Coming Your Way.  Well, how about that? This synch is quite encouraging!

I subscribe more and more to the importance of paying attention to one’s thought patterns and the outside environment. Mindfulness and gratitude have helped me cultivate more patience and hope. This doesn’t mean I am completely unaffected by the shitshow in my country for which the word surreal can seem insufficient.  I just don’t have a better word in my vocabulary so surreal will have to do.  Yet, I am learning to surrender more and more. I recommend mindfulness, meditation, anger reduction, and exercise as ways to improve resilience and focus. All practices are not for everyone so your mileage may vary. Astrology is not a panacea that will solve all conflicts but it can point one in the right direction.

 

Please send me some love for this coming week as many changes are in play. While I am becoming more adept at coping with this tumultuous year, I am still a work in progress. Just don’t mess with the Classic Editor because I don’t want to zigzag right off the rails. I just love blogging for all of you way too much.

Strange Day

 

UPDATE 9/28/20 : I have come to realize that both the image and unsettling experience described below were brought to me by my team and other higher dimensional beings, not at all random or simply intuition( image) or sabotage ( wood chopping). The image is about healing and power through art and stillness. The disruption event was an example of how I get in my own way and/or find ways to not commit to a new way of being. I choose to believe that life is conspiring in my favor and no-thing is deliberately working to impede my progress. Yeah, it took a few days but I see it now.

 

 

Can something be both beautiful and destructive?

Yes it is so. The spotted lanternfly, a lovely ( but easily camouflaged ) insect was spotted by me on Wednesday ( photo above) and in my car yesterday. I also saw it a week or so ago and thought it was a butterfly. I did some research and learned this fly is on the watchlist for extensive tree damage. I am living apparently in the “quarantine zone.” I did take it out of my car. It is so pretty, but a menace to Gaia.

Little is clear to me now. I will explain.

I excitedly took an online channeling class today with Lorie Ladd. My wifi was fine and I was nervous but ready to learn more about how to channel energies consciously. I believe I have been doing it for years, unconsciously. About  a minute or so into the first guided practice meditation , I hear what sounds like drilling. It gets louder and louder. I try to ignore it but cannot do so. I look outside and see some guy sawing wood near my backyard. Why he decides to do this on a Saturday night is beyond me. My neighbors for the most part have been really annoying lately.  There seems to be a callous disregard for the boundaries of other people, as I have written about previously. I had to stop the Zoom call and I felt a lot of anger and resentment. Why would this noise occur right in the middle of the class when we are starting the actual channeling? My laptop does not have a working battery so it would have taken time to find a place to plug in the cord and reboot. I figured I would just try again when I get the video replay. I have let go of the anger because I do not want to be a victim. Maybe there is a great reason why my process was interrupted. The past week has been exhausting and annoying in part to Saturn and Mars, which I may address another time.

On a more pleasant note, earlier in the class an image came to me quite strongly. While Lorie was discussing art and clairvoyance, I saw a painting in my head. It was gorgeous , featuring potent crystals and lavender. I could not , not think about it.  It occurred to me it might be on my blog but then I connected it with Sue Dreamwalker. I could not find it anywhere on her blog. I finally checked my media library, taking in the spectacular array of images and found her painting. Why was this artwork created 7 years ago renting space in my head? I do not know. From time to time I will get a flash of a painting or photo and become obsessed with its origins. Lorie discussed the power of channeled art and it really made me reflect on my love of this medium. Sue’s painting was part of my first blogging challenge back in 2013. Maybe it popped into my brain to invite you all again to join my current challenge. Please check it out here. I am eager to get it up and running soon but need a few more writers to sign up.

I am still trying to get grounded after a very frustrating day. I do not think I meant to sabotage my progress with channeling higher dimensions and owning up to my multidimensional nature. I guess I will need to cultivate more patience and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Thanks Sue for your lovely art and your enduring friendship!

Guilt comes up

This post from Karin is so necessary and spoke to me at a profound level. I am reblogging this one because it ties together so many important themes: separation, residual feelings about separation, feeling the feelings which leads to dismantling collective density and more….

Spiritual Awakening

End of August and beginning of September 2013, around the time when I was treated by the spiritual healer, I hit the guilt layer full force.

According to A Course in Miracles which I had read a couple of years ago, there was first the thought of separation, and that created the thought of guilt. Which in turn created fear.  Which in turn created the universe which features the illusion of separateness of things in time and space. (That’s the root-cause analysis of the human condition in a nutshell according to ACIM and The Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard).

In Gary Renard’s book, it was explained that the underlying guilt is unconscious. When I read that, I thought, ‘Guilt? What guilt? I feel like the most innocent person on the planet. After all, I am always making sure that I keep my promises and that I don’t…

Channeling Libra

Hi everyone out in cyberville! I am enjoying this Libra/Autumn time here in the Eastern US. I feel grateful for the chillier weather and clear blue skies. I do not take them for granted, especially now. Not a fan of the noisy pipes adjusting to the heating system, but it is all part of the transition. The environment is still rather summery with an occasional glowing falling leaf or two. That’s fine, I can wait for foliage to emerge.

I came by mostly to thank everyone who is rating my posts and to share another video. Many of you know that I don’t get my guidance in a very direct way most of the time. I have prayed for assistance and also consulted with teachers, helpers, etc for assistance. I heard something today by Lorie Ladd that I see as a potential breakthrough. The video I am sharing is a Q and A and she covers a variety of topics, but look out for the question she is asked about her spiritual journey. For me, this may be a game changer:

 

 

She also briefly mentions her channeling webinar this Saturday. Click here to learn more and register if led to take the class. I am thinking to taking it because I am curious and curiosity is very helpful on the spiritual journey, especially around manifestation.  I am still a fan of Matt Kahn and others and loved Matt’s latest book, but right now Lorie is my girl! I also find it interesting that Lorie is a fan of Matt and watches his videos. One more display of synchronicity.

 

 

Let me fill you in briefly about Libra energy; the goal is balance and harmony, but often we experience the opposite. Libra types often are out of balance and my express more aggression or passive aggression. This may seem confusing, but consider that the path to Venus ruled justice, love, equality, peace and harmony is a road, a journey. Something to chew on…. Cheers to you on this free flowing Libran Wednesday.

Can’t We All Get Along?

Can’t we all get along? This is a famous quote spoken by Rodney King whose brutal attack by police in 1992 sparked the Los Angeles Riots. Sometimes it seems little has changed, but I know better. As the Equinox approaches with the Sun entering Libra, thoughts of equality, justice, civility, relationship and harmony all weigh heavily on my heart.

There is light at the end of the pier, tunnel, and within all hearts. I consider myself a passionate person who has tempered some of this energy as I have matured. Yet my passion has been quite stirred on social media lately when it comes to the division around politics, COVID-19, belief systems, and the push to “take a side.” I have had to be more cautious on Facebook and even here on my beloved WP. I have lost some readers and followers because of my opinions. Have any of you experienced this too?

I work so hard to not react, or better yet, react with kindness and compassion. My opinions and beliefs continue to evolve and I think this is a good thing. What bothers me the most is the cruelty displayed online, especially by those who call themselves spiritual. So many of these beliefs and actions have a high stakes quality because decisions made can cost human life and affect the planet in so many negative ways. Life was so much simpler when I was a teenager or young adult and was so sure I knew everything, so full of myself, ha!

Athena

I hate having to worry about censoring myself around people I consider to be my friends. Sometimes I just avoid a post, Meme or comment and simply move on. I am not that interested in convincing anyone to take my side. I just feel such sadness about how many lives have been lost or hurt due to this cancerous division that has taken over our universe. Some choices are deadly and the intensity keps amping up.

As always, I look for guidance, usually within , through mindfulness, meditation, writing, walking and now- by practicing Reiki on myself and my environment. I know I cannot be hurt by anyone and that no-thing is truly personal. But it still can sting. So I am sharing another Lorie Ladd video that I found helpful.

While I do not adhere to all of Lorie’s belief systems, I know her heart. She is gentle, sincere, and real. She also does her best to welcome diversity of ideas within her community. This video explains her current take on the energies as guided by and through the Galactic Federation of Light. It is so interesting that I find so much diversity within the Spiritual community; never before have I witnessed such division and negativity. Let me know how you see this phenomenon in the comments. Can we agree to disagree without “cancelling each other” ?  I hope so.
