5 Year Blogiversary ~ Intentions in Process

Can you believe it,  litebeing chronicles is five years old! This blog has become a boisterous, temperamental 5-year-old, finding its voice and asserting its creative muscle day-to-day, from draft to publish. I am featuring a new drawing and tagline to celebrate another exciting year of blogging and building community.

A few months back, Sue Dreamwalker commented that I create some new artwork to reflect a fresh outlook. You can read the blog that inspired her comment here.  The image above  is my re-imagining of my healing journey. The grand canyon in the Western US is my muse, along with the recent transit of Saturn in Capricorn. Since I have my natal Saturn in Capricorn, it is “right on time.” The grand canyon is a kaleidoscope of earth and sky and light, punctuated by wildlife and human interactions. Saturn in Capricorn symbolizes navigating obstacles and delays with patience, persistence, humility, and grace.

I apparently chose the same color palette as my Colonodyssey piece,  but that is where the similarities end. Without hyper-analysis, I see this drawing as flowing with movement, soft in mood, and focused upward. Perhaps in time more nuanced symbolism will reveal itself. I am pleased to have finished the piece, which I nurtured slowly and spontaneously.

Along with the art, I crafted a new tagline to celebrate my 5th blogging year: separation interrupted, evolution imminentI really like the phrase Girl, Interrupted, taken from the film of the same name. Then I combined it with my reaction to the separation by adding evolution imminent.

I see this phrase as a description of my writing, my spiritual journey, and of the planet at large. The concept of separation is taken from A Course in Miracles, where it is seen as the illusion of disconnect from Source.  Collective separation is on the wane, and ascension is imminent. The tricky part is determining exactly how imminent and what ascension/evolution/at-one-ment will look like. I do not have the answers. The words came to me and I just jotted them down and edited the tagline, that’s all! We shall see how this tagline plays out, for myself, my writing, and the highest good for Gaia.

As many readers know, I deliberated chose 1-11 as my blog birthday because I had been seeing 11s and 1s repeatedly as numerical sequences everywhere and with increasing frequency. As it turns out, 2018 is an 11 year.  2 + 1 +8 equals 11.  11 is a master number , which holds a higher vibrational frequency. It signifies inspiration and all things mystical. It is also a double one, emphasizing innovation, self, independence, and mastery. When not approached with loving intentions, an 11 can be reduced to a 2, which centers around relationships and duality.

So what are my intentions for this 5th blogging year? The number 5 deals with adventure, movement, and travel and is associated with the planet Mercury so perhaps my evolution will include some or all of those directions. The 5th dimension is where we are ultimately headed as a planetary species, so that is another clue. While I am not living there in physical form all the time, I have occasional fleeting glimpses of the plane where divine love and effortless manifestation reside.

I have not formally set any intentions yet, except to make good on some promises to publish a few posts from 2017 that eluded me. I also want to share my genealogy findings, interview some folks, and bring some more awareness to addiction and mental illness as they pertain to the spiritual path. Beyond that, I need to take some time to see if there are new avenues for me to explore creatively.

 

Which topics are you interested in ?

Please let me know your preferences in the comments section.

I always love to hear from you!

 

I have drawn some cards for the new year and many of them point to passion for work, fertility, creativity, love, inner reflection, and masculine energy. It is interesting how so many of the cards within this reading and together with last lunation’s reading focus on the same themes. Since my blog documents the curiosity and awe that appear as light in my life, it is likely that these themes will show up here at WordPress. Speaking of WordPress, here’s to an awesome birthday for WP founder Matt Mullenweg. Cheers!

Thanks to all my fellow writers and readers who share the lite with me from post to post and comment to comment. We are all in this together!

Blessings, Linda aka litebeing

3 Years in the Making

Fireworks_red_(1)

Happy 1-11 everyone!

Happy 3rd birthday aka blogiversary to litebeing chronicles!

It is triple exciting that my 3rd blogging year is on 1-11. It is 3 on steroids.

Number 3 is the essence of the Trinity  –  mind, body, spirit and is the threefold nature of Divinity.  The number 3 symbolizes the principle of ‘growth’ and signifies that there is a synthesis present – that imagination and an outpouring of energy is in action. To learn more about the magic of 3, please visit this blast from the past.

I wish I had completed this draft yesterday because today’s news of David Bowie’s passing shocked and saddened me. He is one of my favorite musicians/performers and I recently learned he is also an Aquarius rising!  I have been looking to see how this startling news connects with this third year of my blogging journey. This is what I have discovered:

Creativity is a life force and all material beings were created into this form. David Bowie apparently knew his condition was terminal and kept using his creative spark to bring more music onto the planet. As I lived my life this year one thought made a regular appearance ” I can use this for my blog.” I sometimes see myself existing here simply to blog. There is a very compelling quality inherent in my desire to write. While 3 years seems like a short amount of time, I don’t really remember my life prior to taking this step. While I hold many of my memories intact, my life has changed so incredibly. I doubt I even fully understand the impact of this change. Or ever will understand. I am becoming more and more comfortable sitting with mystery. While my curiosity is as fertile as ever, my willingness to receive information at the Divine Time has increased.

We breathe, grow, see, hear, touch, taste, love, fear, learn, forget, remember, awaken, breathe…..

Until we cease to breathe.

I want to continue my stay on Earth with love in my heart and creation emanating from each heartbeat. I can choose to say 2015 was a year of illness and loss or I can choose to say that all is well NOW. Both are true.

Around ten years ago another wise Capricorn advised me during a rough patch to ask myself how I was feeling in that very moment. What a revelation it was to discover that I was worry-free ( peaceful) in the now. I was surprised at the time to see how effective mindfulness can be. It is as effective now as it was over ten years ago. I am grateful that this very moment is all that is. My moods seem to shift much more quickly nowadays and without much effort. This awareness brings me comfort and leaves me enthusiastic about what else awaits me. Perhaps my vibration is rising?

These are the posts from the WordPress Year in Review report that got the most views in 2015.

  1. Scorpio ~ ahhhhh
  2. A Whole New World?
  3. Time Machine Blogging Challenge: It is Off the Chain. Whadya Waiting for? Join Us!
  4. Mosaic and Pointillism Art as Unity Consciousness
  5. Before Midnight – I’ll love you long after you’re gone, gone, gone 

It is interesting that they are all very different in focus – freeform astro- poetry, music, trippy time travel, art, and film. The Scorpio and Before Midnight blogs are from 2013, which means they have staying power. This makes me smile…

This report also indicates that readers respond to a variety of content. I expect to still blog about art, music, film, books, pop culture, and astrology, and much more; typically as they apply to everyday magic. Some may wonder why I do not have a conventional astrology blog. The reasons are many, but here is the short answer: I prefer to share astro-musings as it suits me. I am not content to report on every astro-happening. It is not my style. There are so many writers who do a fantastic job in this vein. I rather wait for inspiration to strike and then an idea is made manifest.

I am a story-teller. At least today I am. Tomorrow I may shift into another mode. I once fancied myself a novelist, poet, screenwriter. I love to tell stories and evoke questions and discussion. This is my thing. I am so grateful that people respond to my writing. It is also incredible how I never know what becomes ” popular” among my posts. Rather than create to please others, I pray that what interests me will find its way to those who may benefit. I write because I must. It is a way of being. I never take it for granted for it is a gift.

A heartfelt thanks to Matt Wullenweg for creating WordPress. Happy 32nd Birthday Matt! Thank you for allowing me to say Hello World exactly 3 years ago today. I also want to acknowledge my fellow bloggers and readers who influence me tremendously. A striking photograph, a passing comment, or a clever turn of a phrase may send me off into an alternate universe where ideas are born. Thank you for being you and sharing this lifetime with me.

What does the future hold? I honestly don’t know. I am drawn to more discussions on ascension, everyday magic, the awakening process, unity consciousness,the love revolution of Matt Kahn, the lure of our dreams, and how inconvenience and risk-taking change my nature. I am blessed with a treasure trove of ideas that keep glowing during my darkest hours. Thank you for glowing with me.

namaste, litebeing

As a tribute to David Bowie and all artists everywhere, I will end with this anthem of my youth that still raises my heart rate whenever I hear it :

Spirit clearly approves ( look at the length of the video). What have I been saying for 3 years? Magic is everpresent.

Happy Blogiversary ~ Pieces of a Dream

What can I say?  litebeing chronicles is now 2 years old! This blog is now in the throes of toddler hood and enjoys establishing its power by saying no and occasionally running a muck. It is ever-changing and developing. I understand this platform better than when I started, and have a more nuanced appreciation for the impact of online communication. No terrible twos for me. Well, maybe an occasional rant…

While I am not changing the direction of litebeing chronicles, I am making a few changes.

New look, New tagline

I already altered the look a bit to reflect my current muse: the universe. My world view has slightly been impacted by the enormity of the unseen. More and more I enter the void. This happens on multiple levels and I hope to describe my experiences throughout the course of this year. Considering the power of mother Earth has been mind-blowing and I continue to sort this out. The documentary Grounding made a huge impression on my understanding of our home. This introduction of the unrealized power potential has really opened many doors for me. One portal that I have accessed is a more organic conceptualization of astrology. It is one that is less theoretical and intellectual for me and this is BIG. While the idea As Above So Below continues to resonate, I have a larger sense of why we are so intertwined with the cosmos. While I find that using words makes this challenging to explain, I will try:

We are no different from the planets.

I invite you to reflect on this and come to your own conclusions. It certainly is worthy of lengthy contemplation. We can do this together. Do we have a deal? Both of these ideas will continue with me into my 3rd year of blogging, no doubt. Which brings me to the next change, the tagline.

I am retiring The adventures of a part-time mystic atleast temporarily. It is time to try something different. One reason is that I am not really a part-time mystic. I just thought that I was. We are all mystics and we have access to other realities all the time. This is because there is no time and because we all are part of one Source. The expression and experiences will vary, but the moniker part-time mystic seems limiting.

The new tagline is Pieces of a Dream. Every single post is a representation of my journey. The journey is always informed by my dreams.  Lately my dreams seem to be more real than my waking life most of the time.  This includes while asleep, in  meditation, daydreaming, or while engaged in imaginative play. Essentially each post is a snapshot of my dreamscape, a piece of the dream. Honestly, the phrase recently popped in my head ( as often happens) and I liked it. Don’t most of us aspire to be living the dream ?

I will continue to blog on what inspires me without a master plan.  I am intrigued by doing more interviewing in the future and hope to have more opportunities. Let me know if you would like to be interviewed or have some prospects. I am also bringing forward radical gratitude practice, pronoia ( the world is conspiring in your favor), and sheer curiosity and awe.

I also am intrigued by intentionality and have found a  prompt that I want to share with you. When I first saw this commercial, I was hooked. I was instantly transformed to a blissful innocence. Could it be the promise of coffee? Or perhaps the catchy tune? Watch and tell me if it alters your frequency.

Allow me to introduce you to my 3 power animals in training: Owl, Tiger, and Deer. I am drawn to all 3 ( 111)  and I plan to see which of these are my guides for 2015 ( or longer). Owl symbolizes an oracle of secret knowledge, Tiger symbolizes illumination and wealth, and Deer symbolizes the Easterly directions and faerie realms. If you have read my last few posts, you will see why these particular symbols are meaningful for me.

All 3 have appeared to me strongly in a variety of ways. Some I have seen in my backyard, in dreams, or in some other guise such as in the media. I am excited to discover if they are my guides and will let you know as soon as I do.

I hope to continue to inspire and be the kind of writer that I like to read, one who is informative, clever, imaginative, and authentic. I welcome your feedback, suggestions, and comments.

When I chose 1-11-13 as my start date, I did not realize that I would continue to see these repetitive numbers for 2 more years. I also did not foresee that this would be an international phenomenon. At this juncture I get that both my desire to blog and the numerical sequences were indeed linked. Like many of us, I have been called to communicate this way and connect with others of the light. Welcome to all the new followers and readers. Thank you all for being so much more than readers. You have become my community of light.

You are litebeings.

Thank you Matt Mullenweg for being born on 1-11 and creating WordPress. I wish you a blessed birthday and hope you have a sense of the role you have played in facilitating this network.

Cosmic update: According to my stats, this is my 222 published post. ( I have published more, but some have reverted to private status).
