Are You Experiencing a Spiritual Emergency?

Leave it to Whitehawk to assemble an excellent share on Spiritual Emergency, a topic dear to my heart. Enjoy and better yet, reblog on your sites! Namaste

Winging with Whitehawk

Image of a depressed man and a candle symbolic of the spiritual emergency I’ve been in and out of “spiritual emergencies” during my “emergence” journey since about 1990. My first exposure to the phrase spiritual emergency was via Christina Grof in the book, The Stormy Search for the Self – still a valuable read if this subject speaks to you.

Also: I’ve always considered the Lonerwolf team – Aletheia Luna & Mateo Sol – to know of what they speak, so I share this with confidence that someone out there needs it, or at least portions thereof. (It’s also currently published on Wakeup World.)   Bless us, every one!  Whitehawk


15 Signs You’re Experiencing a Spiritual Emergency

by Aletheia Luna

You’ve gone through a tremendous spiritual awakening. Your life perspective has changed drastically. You’re no longer the same person you once were a few years ago.

But something has gone horribly wrong.

Do Stuff Now ~ 2020 version

wikipedia.org public domain

We have between now and February 17, 2020 when Mercury moves retrograde to be active without restrictions, delays, snafus, etc. When Uranus stationed direct on Friday  1-10-20 , we entered a rare planetary occurrence. All planets are moving in direct motion. Now that the immediate Lunar Eclipse and Saturn Pluto conjunction events has ended, we can use these next few weeks to get movin’. One month of direct motion is rather short so I would take advantage of this period to seize the moment.

Here are some suggestions:

Take a bike ride on an unfamiliar route

Write a letter using calligraphy

Book a trip to an obscure historical site

Throw out stuff ( junk) you never use

Take a yoga class

Host a party to build your professional network

Adopt an animal or two

Start a dream journal

If you have not already done so, begin a blog ( or add a new one)

MITSteeple

Get in on the action while the getting is good ; life can be both a sprint and a marathon…..

Do stuff NOW!!

What stuff will YOU do???

Happy Blogiversary, Seven Years of Discovery

By © Ra Boe / Wikipedia - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=10044985

So here we are in the midst of astrological transformation and litebeing chronicles is having her solar return. Happy 1-11-2020 everyone! This adds up to 7 , by the way. Coincidence – I don’t think so.

My blog is seven years old, the age where children begin Piaget’s concrete operational stage and begin to learn how to organize thoughts cohesively. So let’s just say that this bodes well for my writing process!

In honor of the blogiversary I changed the tagline to let’s walk together on the path of awakening. This idea was partially inspired by a famous Ram Dass quote:

We’re all just walking each other home.

I really like his quote and believe it is a large part of the premise of interpersonal relationships. Bonding with others helps us survive and thrive through the incarnation journey.  Blogging is relational and I aspire to write in a way that is genuine, engaging, and relatable.

Recently I was led back to my first blog  and I noticed many interesting details I may have initially overlooked. I was amazed to discover that a few of my original likers are people who found me first and are still in my life.

Sindy, Cindy, and Deb, how cool is that? I feel incredibly blessed to have made so many strong, meaningful connections with like-minded fellow writers and doubly blessed when these connections endure. I really had no idea what I was doing, but the words and ideas kept flowing…. and here we are now. I went to a training yesterday and the instructor said that we can only know ourselves through others, that self-understanding is relational. I sense this idea is both simple and profound and timely in the wake of where we currently stand in our global community.

These past seven years have been quite challenging for me with many unexpected curveballs. Yet, finding this platform and making a commitment to write about my journey was one of the best gifts I have ever given myself. I have said this here repeatedly, but I will do so yet again: the act of writing opened up an aspect of my being that had been dormant for many many years. Some risks are worth taking and this was certainly one of them for me. Please join me in celebrating my baby’s 7th birthday by letting me know one thing that you have enjoyed about my blog. It would mean a lot for me to know how litebeing chronicles has impacted you.

much love to you all

What now?

So hello 2020! As I read so many musings on the astrological weather, I ask myself ” Why haven’t you wanted to write anything? ” I could answer that I am too busy, tired, or physically unwell ( and they are would be correct). But that is not the true answer. I just don’t have all that much to add to the conversation.

And yet, here I am typing out a few words right before bedtime. So I must have something to say!  When I consider how so much energy is in Capricorn, I wonder about the concept of form and what does it really mean in the true scheme of energy-based consciousness. Then I consider Uranus, who lives in the future and is such a wild card. And then, of course, is my blogiversary on 1-11-20, coming up on seven years. Where does the “time ” go ?

Currently, I have a good part of the Zodiac, 4 planets going on 5 shortly,  temporarily setting up housekeeping in Capricorn in the 12th house , where life is murky, musty, and mysterious ( among many other things. ) So on one hand, I feel more confused than usual, and on the other hand, more aware of subtle divine communications. For example, I received 2 emails today exactly 2 hours apart. The first one has the subject heading “Future is now following your blog. ” The second one reads  ” Sailfuture inc is hiring for adventurous teaching job at private school in Florida. ”  No, you cannot make this stuff up!

When I read the first email heading, my thoughts were led immediately to the show “God Friended Me “.  What is the future trying to tell me? More importantly, what is the future? Is this a sign of Uranus trying to get my attention?  Yes, probably so.

I used my randomizer on my blog today to see what I would land on, and it took me to my very first blog post. How cool is that on the near eve of my blogiversary? What I found interesting there is my reference to the planet surviving the Mayan Apocalypse. Remember 12/21/12 and the doomsday havoc we collectively created?  Or the Uranus Pluto Square? Or the Y2K moment?

I am not implying that these astrological events are hoaxes, nothing of the sort. But what is important to note that the external shake ups and blessings are just the tip of the awakening iceberg. The subtleties that often emerge  within our being  – sometimes more obvious in retrospect, that’s where the diamonds are found ( could not help the Saturnian reference. )

So what now?

I wish I could wrap this piece up all neatly with a frilly bow, but that ain’t happening. We will all experience the next hours and days to come within the reality we have created, both in isolation while also communally as the fellow Gaia visitors we all are. We are merely visitors as spirit in form for a blink of an eye. The train has already left the station. So let’s make the most of this experience together and with love.

Fare Well 2019

Another year and decade, come and gone, and I feel the need to say something. I took a peek at some of my posts from 2019 to help me chart my “life review ” and it occurred to me that readers might enjoy a sampling to savor as a holyday treat.

Here are some links to a few posts from 2019:

As I reflect on this decade, I consider what I am grateful for, what really moved me and placed love in my heart? I went through so many jobs, lost beloved Dexter, and became seriously ill during this timespan, so much loss and upheaval.

And yet….

On 1/11/13 I started litebeing chronicles and magic was afoot. No, it was not a mystical experience, but it was a holy communion of sorts. Taking the risk of expressing myself for the sheer joy of doing so, lead me on a path filled with excitement, wonder, fulfillment and community. It also gave me a platform to share my astrology with clients all over this beautiful planet, some by Skype, phone, or in person. All were blessed encounters where I was able to serve and shine some light.

I have so much more up my sleeve ( and in my drafts folder) to share when inspiration takes root. In the meantime, I want to share my gratitude for my loved ones, family of blood and of choice, and my guides who help me steer this physical body through both smooth and choppy seas.

What moments resonate for you as the treasured highlights of 2019, the 2010s, or this lifetime? Please share your highlights here in the comments section!

Blessings to all my readers, followers and fellow writers who mean everything to me.

Have a Fearless Joyful 2020! love, litebeing Linda

2014 Wrap-up Challenge: Present Your Gifts

Happy Cappy everyone 😀

Since I decided I would take whichever day was left for my blogging challenge, I kinda suspected I would get Christmas Day. Yet I figured I would wait and write my post on the day I was “given.” It is indeed Christmas Day and I am relishing the quiet while I type. This post is my present to all of you.  So in that spirit please read on…

First I want to let you in on a little secret. When I devised this challenge and created the theme, I was hoping that focusing on gratitude would lift my spirits. I was imagining that those who were called to participate would connect to form an energetic web of light that exuded grace, miracles, and blessings. As per usual, this challenge has proved to be miraculous in scope with surprises at every twist and turn. And it isn’t even finished yet!

A map of my spiritual journey

I am guided to share Karin’s lovely post about her journey. Karin’s perspective adds a unique, nuanced dimension that makes an excellent addition to one’s understanding of spiritual awakening.

much love on this Solstice and all -ways, Linda

Spiritual Awakening

Is there a map for the spiritual journey? There are maps for every phase in life. When kids come into puberty, we teach them what is going to change in their body. When a woman is pregnant, she is taught how pregnancy, labor pain and childbirth unfold.

But what about a map for the spiritual journey?

I searched and found that there are already many maps out there. And they differ not only in the metaphors they use, but also in the emphasis which they give to the single phases and milestones of the spiritual journey. No wonder, because the curriculum of life is highly individualized.

So, I decided to draw a map of my own journey and add it to the number of already existing maps. And even though everyone’s journey is different, I still hope that some readers can relate to my observations.

When I look back at…

It’s for the Birds

Hello litebeings,

Just yesterday I was meeting with my spiritual director about how bored I am with my life and that I rarely can generate excitement anymore. This existential angst has been in play a few months, as transiting Saturn joins transiting Pluto in my 12th house.

After waking this morning I draw the blinds in my dining room which faces the backyard. I see something I have never seen before. Initially, I thought I spied a few sparrows getting ready to disperse. But this was a whole ‘nother event. I witnessed what looked like a few hundred blackbirds literally carpet the backyard and eventually come close to darkening the morning sky in flight. I rushed to turn on my phone to take a picture but it seemed like I was too late. But they swooped back down just a few yards from view, giving me a small window to capture their images on my phone.

I know that these shots do not really show the scope of this bird convention. The limits of the camera and my inability to go outside to get a wider shot prevented me from transferring my experience to “form” adequately. Let me tell you though: seeing these birds en masse took my breath away. I felt both awe and fear, trying to understand why they were gathering here. Was it a sign for me? Was there something going on that led them here? ( Sometimes it is not about me. )

I did a little digging and prayed they were not a ” murder of crows ” signaling death and bad luck. Honestly, I was feeling that way for weeks before the birds arrived. What I discovered is that blackbirds, among other bird species, migrate together in winter to keep them safe. I did not know any of this and it led me to wonder how many other natural encounters may not have been cosmic in origin.

And yet, why can’t it be both? Before the internet, I would have had to go to the library and research this phenomenon if I wanted some understanding. And before there were libraries, I probably would have accepted that they were coming to see me!

I have had several unusual bird encounters, especially around the early 2000s when Neptune was conjunct my Ascendant. I learned then that birds are ruled by Aquarius ( my rising sign ) and that fact was important to me then. I am actually fond of birds but was a bit frightened of the power wielded by the magnitude of their numbers. Yet, when they soared together in flight, my fear turned to delight as I witnessed such extraordinary beauty in motion.

Here is some bird interpretation courtesy of my fave symbolism site :

Birds that are black do not give up their secrets easily. They love to watch us marvel over their messages. Blackbirds demand our commitment to learning their wisdom and do not reveal their meanings unless they are convinced we’ve devoted ourselves completely to the path of understanding.

Part of this understanding comes from the clear perception of the dark and light sides of the universe.

This concept of light and dark is a fundamental concept of alchemy which is: Transition and Transformation. It deals with the ability to accept there are both black and white energies, and they most both exist in order for our world to exist.

The bird itself is symbolic of life in the heavens (higher ideals, higher path of knowing). The color black is symbolic of pure potential.

Consider: what is not exposed, is unknown. What is not known, holds infinite possibility. So, between the two, (the meaning of birds, and the meaning of the color black) there is no limit to human transformation – all we have to do is gently pull the shades down of our rational mind, and start sojourning with our darkly feathered friends.

This all comes about because birds are (metaphorically and mythologically speaking), situated in proximity to the higher energies of the Universe. This also positions them as heavenly or divine oracles and messengers in cultural myths across the globe.

Blackbirds and birds of black or dark colors are special among their airy clan as they are symbolic of:

  • Magic
  • Mystery
  • Secrets
  • The Unknown
  • Pure Potential
  • Unobvious Perception

When I consider where my thoughts and energy have been recently, this interpretation is eerily on point. I need more time to process, but I realize that the duality of dark and light is important for me to integrate, yet again. It is also interesting that a bit later today I spoke to my former supervisor on the phone and heard whistling. He told me that what I was hearing was the new parakeet he just brought home. Another bird? hmmm.

So tell me, have you had any unique bird encounters? Please describe them to us in the comments section.

update: Look what I was given later today:

more bird medicine!

I am in love with this video. It is a rap ascension video. Yes, you read this right! It is like no-thing I have ever heard.  It latched onto my heart and my soul grinned in agreement. Then he mentioned being a Scorpio!

Enough said. Time to listen.

Coming Into Alignment with Higher Self

Aspects of Ascension – Impressions of a Pleiadian Walk-in

By Sundeelia VaCoupe, Specialty Commander Communications, ‘The White Winds’

In the course of being “here” on 3D Earth, I have observed the many permutations of various psyops variously called “religion”, spirituality including so-called “New Age teachings which were designed specifically by the Central Intelligence Agency in the mid-20th century. While my sister, Lady Tazjma, was present here, she posted channeled pieces and articles written by many people, some posing as ‘ascension teachers’, ‘guides’, and other self-appointed titles. I will make a simple and perhaps disturbing statement in response to these people who take themselves too seriously, charging other people money for their services, and invariably falling into ego traps: Spirituality or to truly live within Spirit is very simple. You don’t need books, lectures, videos, workshops, or other people how to tell you…
