Update: I thought it might be worthwhile to mention some films I enjoyed since the Oscars were last held. :

Three Christs

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Rocketman

Marriage Story

Clearly I did not see many new films recently, or they were not memorable enough for me to notice!

Here are a few I hope to see soon :

Little Women

Check out Monika of Symbolreader’s review here : https://symbolreader.net/2020/02/06/little-women-2019-a-short-review/

Harriet

Judy

Bombshell

Lucy in the Sky

I have been viewing more US election coverage this past year, and for me the political is spiritual. However I want to honor my appreciation for artistry of Greta Gerwig, Brad Pitt ( yes, he can also act ), Charlize Theron, Richard Gere ( before there was a Brad Pitt), Adam Driver, Scarlett Johannson, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, and my admiration of hero Harriet Tubman, icon Judy Garland, and reformed role model Elton John. I find that studying history and autobiography gives us a unique understanding of the bigger picture.

***************************************************************

In honor of the Oscars tonight, I had to showcase some of my favorite spiritually themed films. While the Oscars are typically held during the sign of Pisces,  the Neptune in Pisces transit will ensure glamour and fantasy. Some of my choices are more obscure, and therefore less well-known. A few are controversial (big surprise!), while others are more mainstream crowd-pleasers.

Here’s an alphabetical list with my brief critiques below, enjoy!

Bee Season  (2005)

This movie stars Richard Gere who mentors his daughter while his family falls apart.  It was adapted from the book Bee Season about a young girl’s quest to win a spelling bee. It is a tale about both mysticism and alienation.

 

The Blue Bird  ( 1940)

I first stumbled onto this Shirley Temple feature as a child and was mesmerized by this story about the search for the bluebird of happiness. The way in which the future was characterized was both otherworldly and heart wrenching   The memory of this magical realm stayed with me for years and was just as captivating during a recent viewing.

 

City of Angels  (1998)

This story about an Angel who risks everything for the woman he loves stars Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage. Most of the story takes place in the hospital where a weary physician becomes involved in an unlikely love triangle. The performances of the two principles are both soulful and nuanced.

 

 Close Encounters of the Third Kind  (1977)

This Steven Spielberg classic highlighted the theme of interconnection long before Babel, Crash, and Traffic and also demystified the concept of life on other planets. When I initially saw this film, I wondered if Spielberg was trying to prepare us for the possibility of some visitors! See it again with new eyes.

 

Cloud Atlas  (2012)

(  The last 4 digits of the URL are 1111, hmmmm. )

This was adapted from the book Cloud Atlas and features an ensemble cast whose multiple characters permeate each other’s orbits through time and space. It is a stunningly complex epic that left me enthralled long after the final credits. Incredible work by Halle Berry and Tom Hanks, supported by spectacular costumes, sets, and special effects.

 

Contact (1997)

Jodie Foster plays a lonely  scientist who seeks out communication from the cosmos and meets a charismatic theologian in Matthew  McConaughey along the way. David Morse’s performance as her father is noteworthy. Fabulous use of special effects adds to the appeal.

 

Defending Your Life ( 1991 )

This funny yet poignant story about the afterlife features Meryl Streep and Albert Brooks.  Shirley MacLaine discusses reincarnation in a cameo role. The plot focuses on the impact of love and fear on one’s evolution. Wonder if the writers read  A Course in Miracles ?

 

 Groundhog Day ( 1993 )

Bill Murray does what he does best as he tries to win Andi MacDowell’s heart on Groundhog’s Day.    After I watched the movie a few times, I was able to recognize the gradual soul development of Bill Murray’s character. There is more here than meets the eye.

 

 Heaven Can Wait  ( 1978 )

Warren Beatty is luminous as the football player who dies before his time in this remake of Here Comes Mr. Jordan. This tale of reincarnation has a fair balance of comedy and romance. Beatty’s chemistry with Julie Christie here really makes the difference.

 

  Made in Heaven ( 1987 )

This is another love story starring Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis. They meet in the afterlife and are forced to find each other again on Earth before Timothy Hutton’s character turns thirty. His real wife at the time , Debra Winger, plays God. Two souls head out on separate heroes’ journeys in order to have a chance to reunite. Watch for the surprise cameos along the way!

 

  The Last Temptation of Christ ( 1988 )

I love Martin Scorsese so maybe I am a bit biased but I adored this over the top interpretation of the life of Christ based on the adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis’s novel . It is brilliantly acted by Willem Dafoe and thoughtfully depicts his inner struggle as he gradually comes to accept his divinity and ultimate fate.

 

 The Sixth Sense ( 1999 )

One of Bruce Willis’s best performances and shot in Philly to boot! Willis plays a therapist whose young client ( Haley Joel Osment) sees dead people. If you haven’t seen it yet, the ending will blow you away. I would consider this film a modern-day classic.

 

 Sliding Doors ( 1998 )

This is a tale of parallel universes starring Gwyneth Paltrow as a young woman who makes different choices about her fate. The story-telling is very credible so it is effortless for the audience to buy this premise as plausible. It is a clever take on the road not traveled.

 

 Somewhere in Time  ( 1980 )

One of my favorites about reincarnation and time travel with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour.  I especially liked Jane Seymour in this role as she seems to me to be from a previous era. Christopher Reeves also shows more dramatic range and magnetism that is less obvious in later roles. The story’s pace is nuanced yet compelling as you are transfixed by a stunning score, enchanting sets, and strong chemistry between the two leads.  A truly romantic treasure.

 

  Vanilla Sky ( 2001 )

Although I am not a Tom Cruise fan, I think he is fabulous as this cocky rich kid caught up in this trippy murder mystery. Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz are both excellent as the women in this enchanted love triangle. The ending was so incredible that I had to watch it over and over again to put the pieces together. Stunning visuals and great soundtrack by director Cameron Crowe’s ex-wife Nancy Wilson.

 

  Waking Life  ( 2001 )

Richard Linklater is one of my favorite filmmakers and it is very cool that he took on the topic of lucid dreaming. Yes it is very conversational, but this animated feature is thought-provoking and highly recommended for anyone interested in dream exploration.

 

  What Dreams May Come ( 1998 )

This movie is an emotional roller coaster ride about suicide and the afterlife starring Robin Williams, Anabella Sciorra, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Using spectacular visuals based on Sciorra’s character’s paintings, you are taken on a journey of wonder, awe, and triumph. This is an intense story about tragedy and redemption.

 

What the Bleep Do We Know !?  ( 2004 )

Quantum physics, basketball,a Polish wedding, and a woman’s transformation; this is the cosmic voyage of What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? ( or What the Bleep Do We Know!? ) This extraordinary film incorporates interviews with scientists and thought leaders into a scripted tale of a woman played by Marlee Matlin who is trying to get on with her life after a marital crisis. It was panned by some critics and applauded by others . I really am amazed that this film was able to get a distributor and reach as many people as it did. The DVD version can be programmed to shuffle the scenes randomly. This cult phenomenon has to be seen to be believed!!

  Zardoz  ( 1974 )

What would it be like if you could not die? Zardoz attempts to give you a perspective on eternal life on Earth. It is a somewhat cheesy take on The Wizard of Oz with a 1970’s mentality. I found the premise fascinating, despite its flaws.

 

  Tell me about your favorite spiritual movies. What elements speak to you the most? :

Do you prefer sweeping cinematography, computer generated special effects, or an  artfully crafted screenplay carefully translated onto the screen?

What  role does the score and soundtrack play in your choices?

Classic black and white or strikingly vivid Technicolor?

Comedy, drama, documentary, fantasy, animated, sci-fi, , thriller, or mystery?

Happy February!! Why Astrology Works- A Biased View

Happy February 2020 everyone! While I would be lying if I said I am carefree now that the calendar progressed one month, I will say that some relief has arisen inside of me. I do not take this for granted. To say the energies are intense now seems incredibly redundant. We cannot go back ( from the perspective of linear time, that is). This is the norm at present.

The days are growing longer here in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring does seem to be within reach. I am eager to share with you some new musings about reality, ascension, and living in a body litebeing style, but this requires more processing and the correct “space” to write in a way that is blog-worthy in quality and scope.

So in the meantime, I want to share with you a new article by Matt Kahn. I find myself surprised to notice that I may be partially? ascending. Please read below and share your reactions with me. Then scroll further below to read my annual February blog.

love ya, litebeing

 

Energy Update: This is the Ascension

I welcome you today for this energy update, not with more signs of how the Universe is preparing you to Ascend, but to confirm that the Ascension process is in full swing and well underway.

During the 12:12 Stargate which was more pronouncedly open between 12/12/19 through 12/21/19, I began feeling the quickening of Ascension in progress, unlike any other glimpse or preview I had sensed before.

During this actual Ascension, it has a very surreal quality, as if you are walking between worlds. Perhaps it feels like you are already in the afterlife, while story lines of life seem to play out around you. Maybe you are noticing a visceral disinterest with many of the addictive coping mechanisms that were often employed in 3D to numb the pain that you are learning to face, embrace, welcome, and love. Perhaps a mass exodus of friends, family, and partnerships has given way to this multi-dimensional vision quest where, in the absence of relying on others for distraction or the need for constant reassurance or validation, you have been placed in an ‘in-between’ holding pattern where you get to face the sensations, memories, and feelings that cause you to numb your pain or hide your power in the hands of another person’s will.

This holding pattern, which acts as part of the initial big leap in the Ascension already unfolding, gives you an opportunity to transform your relationship with stillness– instead of feeling stuck, disempowered, or afraid of missing out when life stalls to a standstill. Here you are able to see how cleverly life is helping you transform familial patterns of enmeshment into new realities of empowerment, simply by changing your experience of stillness from the withdrawal of loneliness to the true autonomy and serenity of being one with all.

If this holding pattern energy feels more overwhelming than empowering, do not worry. It signifies a great cellular purge, where much like the pulling of a heavy anchor that allows a ship to set sail along its new and exciting voyage, your cellular body is emptying our reservoirs of outdated memories, limiting beliefs, and energies taken on from others all the way back to time spent in utero. The amount of energetic chord-cutting that has been occurring since the 12:12 Stargate opening truly illustrates how hard the Universe is working on your behalf to lighten the load as you begin quantum leaping from one level of reality to the next.

Signs that you have completed the chord-cutting process and emptied out the cellular debris of the great purge and are already making your way from 3D timelines into a new 5D reality include the following symptoms:

The requirement of more rest than normal, including disruptive sleep patterns, the inability to sleep deeply, along with exhaustion, fatigue, and confusion as to where you are in your path and where things are headed.

Heightened sensitivity to triggers, whether in yourself or others, with less drive or desire to be around those whose patterns can be felt in your empathic energy field.

Less desire for people, places, or things as a source of greater happiness, which can also include a lack of desire along with fears that you ‘should’ have something to desire. Often the desireless space, although temporary, signifies a shift from identifying with form to being the formless witness experiencing itself in body.

Lowered immune system function, such as adrenal fatigue, heightened food allergies, difficulties with digestion, as well as healing common colds or flus at a remarkably slower rate. This is due to the majority of your life force, or chi, being utilized to move you through Ascension, which leaves less energy for other areas to be balanced. The more willing you are to step into the unknown and trust the Ascension process, the less energy is needed to move you into 5D, so other subtle energy bodies can be offered greater support.
An absolute resignation with the state of the collective, whether stemming from environmental concerns, the threat of political elitism, or even too much time spent interpreting life through the eyes of conspiracy theories. Such insanity being viewed around you, and acted out by those around you, signifies the detox kickback of those who have spent so much time steeped in 3D belief constructs that they are fighting to stay in 3D, as if Ascension were an unfair eviction instead of an existential rescue mission.

A growing awareness of addiction patterning as the source of true human suffering.

A deep longing to return home, find your soul tribe, and be done with what appears to be an outdated and dying human paradigm.

As you come to see how many of these symptoms match your experience, it confirms the Ascension already taking place. It is important to note that life on Earth only appears to be the unfolding of Armageddon because the ego structure of the collective is so unaware of the process of spiritual evolution, it can’t help but fixate on all that is threatened to be lost, instead of seeing more open space being created for new spiritually-grounded realities to emerge. Simply put, the difference between Armageddon timelines and Ascension timelines is your level of awareness. And yet, both Ascension and Armageddon timelines are playing out within the same hypersphere of reality that we collectively call Planet Earth. This also helps you realize those on Armageddon timelines are experiencing the process of Ascension, but from a perspective of fear, lack, and scarcity, instead of an awareness of what is meant to dissolve so a truth greater than personal gains and losses can be received and anchored into form.

There will not be a time where you must part with loved ones on Armageddon timelines in order for you to Ascend. That is a widely-believed spiritual myth. Instead, there will be those in your life experiencing the same shifts you are, but from a space of fear, codependency, enmeshment, addiction, and self-absorption, who can only be supported by the light you shine when you’re leading by example, instead of trying to constantly change people to your liking.

Please remember, it only looks ‘crazy’ to the unconscious patterning that doesn’t know how to surrender, but is being surrendered by a Universe that can only accept the destiny of Earth’s conscious evolution. To assist you further in this initial leap of Ascension, it is a perfect time in your life’s journey to:

Surround yourself with those who cherish and respect you, instead of filling your life with people just to have bodies around you. Even if you are the only one able to respect your light, you are far better off filling your time with moments in nature, exercise, creative expression, and deeply-integrative spiritual practices than to fuel patterns of enmeshment or codependency as a way of hiding from feeling so alone.

Even if just for a few days at a time, take breaks from chasing news headlines or consuming fear-based “fake news” stories and conspiracy theories. During this time of Ascension, it isn’t a matter of how much you know, but how aligned you are with the highest wisdom you’ve already absorbed. If you sense a fear of being left behind, out of the loop, or a target for unconscious agendas, please know that it is your connection with Source, as the Holy Creator of all things, from one spectrum of consciousness to another that reveals your true sovereign safety, no matter the perceivable threats in view.

When in doubt, always remember: a threat is only as daunting and overpowering as your lack of connection to source. Equally so, it is the will of such dark forces to destroy the hiding spots most people live in to establish a connection in consciousness that ushers humanity along into the pre-destined grace and perfection of unity consciousness. Conspiracy theories can be intriguing like a mystery or horror film you can’t help but watch. And yet, no secret or agenda of the shadow can ever prevent or stop consciousness from expanding. This can help you remember your greatest strength, as the light of all, is in your willingness to change for the better and adapt to the contractions and expansions that serve as an energetic launching pad of your highest living potential. If you are always willing to change and aren’t too inconvenienced to adapt, there isn’t a threat or agenda that can reach your light or get anywhere close to you. Because the agenda of darkness is “control so not to be controlled” it wants absolutely nothing to do with someone whose light of adaptability shines so brightly.

Love yourself enough to bid farewell to long-standing addictions. Do not use self-love as a permissive way of allowing your ego to run your reality with compulsive choices that only make hungry ghosts more insatiable. Whether your addictive pattern is sugar, alcohol, sex, pornography, regular usage of plant medicine, recreational cannabis, binge watching movies or TV shows, or even too much inner spiritual work done from a fear-based perspective, may this be a time of reclaiming the power of your choice-making to fill your life with activities that empower your light versus entangling your ego through the false promise of instant gratification. It is important to remember, addiction is either: (1) over consumption of an external substance, a person, place, or thing used to numb pain or hide from facing deeper truths, or (2) substances that may not be an over-indulgence but are acted out with regular or reoccurring frequency.

At the depths of your soul, you truly know what is and isn’t in your highest alignment to choose. May this auspicious time of quantum leaping be an opportunity to act upon change, instead of merely thinking about the change the Universe is inspiring you to make. No matter how overwhelming it seems, I know you can do this. I so believe in you.

While I will be detailing more about the Ascension as it continues to unfold, today’s energy update is not a call to ascend, but to begin re-prioritizing your reality with greater energetic balance and emotional support in honor of the Ascension well under way.

Whether joining the Love Revolution for Total Integration, Project Resolution, attending a live event in-person, or watching via livestream, now is the time to unite as One and shine our light during the most monumental shift in consciousness this world is birthing.

From my heart to yours, we are in this together. No one can or will be left behind. But your participation is essential in order for the most miraculous versions of this Ascension to shift from ideas of Armageddon to a tangibly-lived reality of Heaven on Earth. I want this for you so deeply and with an outstretched hand, I invite you along a glorious path of love, truth, joy, revelation, and expansion.

As the Universe always says to me, “further instructions will follow.”

All for light. All for Life. All for love,

Matt Kahn

This brief  “rant” is to help the uninitiated understand why I love astrology. This love is illogical, unscientific, and 100 percent biased. Long before I owned an ephemeris or even knew such a thing existed, February was my favorite month of the year. Even though I don’t particularly love winter. Even though I was born in November. When I was a kid, most of my close friends were born within a few days of each other during the beginning of February. I met my teenage crush on February 1st and for a while considered it an unofficial holiday.  My first serious boyfriend was born on February 5th and one of my most magical romances began on Thursday, February 4th. (love the phonetic symmetry)

Once I began taking formal astrology classes and attending astrological lectures, I learned how to properly calculate my astrological chart ( the days before we had computers!!) . Then I discovered that I am an Aquarius Rising. It basically means that the sun enters my first house every year approximately between February 4th and February 6th. For the astrologers reading this, I approximate because I have altered my documented birth-time by a few minutes to correspond better with life events. No one is usually born at 1:00 pm on the dot!!

Why I am posting this ” rant” ? Because I am feeling the pre- ascendant energy take shape! I love the electricity that accompanies the transition from the 12th house to the 1st, the darkness to the light, the hidden to the brightly illuminated. It is truly a rebirth.

 

Aqr

constellation Aquarius

Happy Birthday to all my  February Aquarius friends . Come celebrate the coolest shortest month on our calendar. And to those who don’t get astrology, pay attention to when you come back to life. It may surprise you!

Feather Fanfare

Update: Here is what Karin found after reading my post, an angel with fanfare!

Karin's image

*************************************************************************

 

This quick post is sponsored by ” unexpected magic when least expected and greatly needed. ” I had an urge to throw out the trash today and go outside. It was cold and damp and I felt like staying in on my day off. Yet this nagging thought persisted. And I lately feel lifted when I declutter my home in some fashion. So off I go to discard some garbage and see a gray feather in the parking lot. I am so surprised and thrilled as I scoot down to pick it up. After I walk back up to my house, I notice a second gray feather in the front yard. I gather that one also to bring inside. They look very similar to those I discovered in 2016. Has it been almost four years since I found some large feathers outdoors, well yes!

I went online to learn more about gray feathers to satisfy my curiosity. This particular section grabbed my attention:

A period of tranquillity may lie ahead

Have you been going through a tough time? The grey feather might have appeared to reassure you that the road ahead is much more positive. The feather won’t undo the past nor will it erase bad memories, but it could help to ease your pain and suffering.

Whether you’ve lost your job or someone you care about has passed away, the grey feather could be trying to tell you that everything will be okay. It might not seem like it at the moment but you’re a strong person and you will survive this. Make yourself and those you love proud by holding your head up high and carrying on with life as best you can. Eventually you’ll feel like a great weight has been lifted off your shoulders and you’ll start to feel joy again. Things will get better and these negative thoughts won’t last forever.

I really needed to hear today that things will get better. Life seems to be hyper – frenetic, both while awake and in dreamtime. I am striving to stay in a positive space by keeping up a gratitude practice and being open to signs. One could say I am embracing the dialectic aka gray areas of perspective.

I get very excited when I encounter symbols like these. Nature is wonderful and has so much healing potential. Life is precious and I gather many more folks are finally getting the message.

What have you discovered lately?

Happy Chinese New Year 2020 ~ Metal Rat

https://www.publicdomainpictures.net/

Happy New Aquarius Moon and Happy Chinese New Year! I happen to like that the Chinese New Year takes place in the Western Astrology Sign of Aquarius because it is near my Ascendant. While I am not well versed in Chinese Astrology, I can attest that the reported compatibility between Rats with both Monkeys and Dragons is true for me. I often enjoy discussing the Chinese astrological descriptions with others often found on paper placemats in many Asian restaurants.

I happen to have been born in the year of the Metal Rat and this is the second time that combo has come up during my lifetime. Not surprising since I just had both my second Saturn Return and a Jupiter return quite recently. I am still processing what if anything has emerged in the wake of either transit. I know the rats are supposedly quick thinkers and prosperous. Maybe the prosperity will kick in this go-round?

To learn more about this Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat, click here.

So much constant energetic activity has left me tired and at times agitated and overwhelmed. I slept very late today and apparently needed more time ” off the grid. ” I remember having a lovely dream about an ex, an enduring but complex love that was all-consuming, yet often difficult to sustain. I woke up feeling bathed in love. It was very tangible, this feeling of love and comfort and I longed to return to the dream and for the love to remain. Both faded, but the reminder of love being available leaves me hopeful. I have begun to notice more and more that the little, subtle, experiences and signs we encounter can keep us centered in the face of seemingly cataclysmic outer circumstances. I am still figuring this all out, but sometimes just driving over a formerly pothole covered road that has been finally paved or having phone service restored on my home phone after about 6 months without it helps me understand that all problems are temporary and that solutions are contained within every difficulty.

I could not think of a rat song to conclude my post but have wanted to include Al Stewart, so please enjoy this classic, Year of the Cat:

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

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

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!

When…
