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.

https://feliciabender.com/2018-a-master-11-2-universal-year-the-overall-theme-is-love/

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

Got the 1111?


UPDATE: I gifted a free tarot reading to my 1111th follower Tatjana, who blogs at https://amorisetsomniorum.wordpress.com/ Congratulations! I look forward to providing you with a reading soon.

Hey litebeings!

It is a gorgeous fall day here in Philly and I have 2 job interviews lined up for next week. I am so grateful to have received positive responses to my resume and am hopeful I will attract the employment setting that is for the highest good. I am also grateful my phone camera is now uploading so I can use my own images for this site. But that is not why I am posting today.

I am posting because I have , drum roll please, 1111 followers! Keep in mind that the number fluctuates according to social media and other factors, but the bottom line is that the number 1111 is radiating on the home page, doing its mystical thing.

I have a special gift in store for a lucky follower, so stay tuned! I realize that my stats will change so I want to capture this moment in time.

Thanks to everyone who reads my offerings, partakes of my services, and leaves comments on my blog. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful litebeings in my orbit.

love, litebeing

2017: Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning’s End

photo1218

Life is always in flux. While some forms are fading, others are blooming. The trick is to recognize which direction you are moving in and when to let go.

It is humbling to be nearing my fourth year of blogging and to be able to compose some thoughts about the year ahead and the year I lived through. The more I slow down, the easier it is for me to notice that existence has no clear demarcations. Astrologers love cycles and make mention of the significant planetary movements via stations, transits, and progressions. And yet, because of our cosmic fluency, we are perhaps more likely than most to acknowledge the fragility and malleability of time. Time and music marry well together and led me to use Closing Time in this post title.

To understand where I am today, it is necessary to return to April 2016. At the New Aries moon conjunct Uranus on April 7th, I began to quietly look for jobs while feeling ill. In fact I saw my doctor that very day.  I was being treated for a possible diverticulitis attack on an outpatient basis, thank goodness. One by one calls for interviews slowly began streaming in. You know, when it rains it pours. This was right before the Mars retrograde at 9 degrees Sag on 4-17-16. The day before my first job interview ( April 14th) I felt ill. I went to the doctor that morning with chest pains. This has happened before. I was cleared and happy to report my gut was much improved. About an hour later I felt waves of nausea and what seemed to be a knife going through my reproductive organs. No fun at all.

I had a decision to make, a huge one. Do I continue to live walking on eggshells or do I start living again? I did something so unlike me: I got ready for my interview and drove over while in excruciating pain. I told myself I would power through this. I knew I was close to two hospitals and that whatever will happen, will happen. It was as if I reached the point of no return. I will live in this body or I will leave this body. I was through living on the sidelines. So I completed the interview and was amazed at my accomplishment. I felt worse as evening came and called myself an ambulance. I spent the night in the ER  and was released on April 15th.  The tests  found nothing wrong with me whatsoever. Yet my symptoms continued.  I was given opioids and anti-nausea meds and told to see my gynecologist to rule out fibroid issues. I was obsessed with not taking too many opioid pills. I think I was tuning into the Prince situation as he was hospitalized around the same time as me and died from an opioid overdose.  A few hours later a call came in for another interview. Two days later as Mars stationed retrograde ( close to my MC), I had a defining dream. It ushered in a sense of renewal regarding many aspects of my daily life. I blogged on it here as part of my challenge post.

The interview call I received on April 15th turned into my current job. I still have this poster on my office wall. When I saw the poster, I became tearful. It was both so unexpected and so necessary. It is interesting that Mars, the ruler of Aries triggered my job search and eventually landing this position and also triggered my announcement of my transfer which begins on Monday. To some degree, the New Cap moon square Uranus direct in Aries signaled the new year cycle. Uranus is always change and Aries is the first sign on the zodiac. I was offered the transfer the day before the new moon and we made it official the next morning December 29th. The energy shifted for me that morning and I sensed more peace. While I am sad to see my friend move on, her decision to leave led to an opportunity for me to take her position. I will still have the same role, but with new clients and some new staff. With two of the new colleagues I have already built an easy, pleasant rapport. I also get to move my office to a more spacious and private location. I am hopeful it will be a more harmonious move on all fronts.

I have some great news regarding my health. After working with Wendy the herbalist/nutritionist for about 6 months, we reran some blood tests to track my progress. My primary doctor was stunned to report that my sugar levels dramatically decreased and this was without any medications! He said the change was significant and had to be attributed to lifestyle change. All my liver function blood tests were normal too. I still have to work on the LDL cholesterol, but it  is very significant that I went from diabetic range to borderline normal range on the A1C. I typically don’t like to go into such details here, but I want to suggest that if I can make this work that others can do the same. I am taking probiotics, drinking  a special herb combination in tea form,  decreasing  refined carbs, and adding more bitter greens and whole grains, among other things. While I will stress there is more to do and that I have regained a few pounds, it is so cool to see that I am capable of effecting change.

photo1362

So the promise of April with a dream of accomplishment and improved health led me to now. While I still have a void inside that is palpable ( Saturn transiting natal Venus return), my life has really changed since 2016. I have a new job, a new car, and better functioning pancreas and liver ( I am speculating based on the labs). I believe that the action of going to that job interview sick as a dog was a way of transcending the material 3D plane and operating as if I was pure spirit. We still have no idea what caused those symptoms, but it may have been associated with the antibiotics I was taking at the time. Or not.

I am so grateful to be working after about 18 months of unemployment and find it ironic that I keep seeing my former supervisor and supervisees at the last few mental health trainings. It appears to be more of this intermingling of the past, present, and future that I frequently write about on these pages. Time is fleeting and infinite, slow and rapid, stagnant and effervescent. We humans feel the impulse to label and celebrate time as a matter of ritual.

So here’s to a sparkling 1-7-17 to all, with Mercury stationing direct tomorrow ( 1-8-17) and 1-11-17 following close behind.

Shine a Light on 1111

Happy 1111 everyone! Here is a re-blog on this auspicious date that is very on-point for the times we find ourselves living in. Please take a look at my challenge post and join in on the fun. You might even win a free astrology reading!

It is in play all throughout November.

Namaste, litebeing

Update: Yesterday ( 11/23) I took a trip to meet up with a friend that I have not seen in about 20 years. We were looking at art and I had to go to the bathroom. We were headed towards the restrooms when I noticed a room filled with beguiling paintings that we may have missed. So we made a quick detour and lo and behold, what did I find staring right in front of me? This masterpiece by Monet which is the image for my 1111 blog post!

Seeing Poplars, Four Trees in person for the first time was exciting and we both were taken with it. The meeting of the physical world with the cyberworld was intensely gratifying. Seems the Elevens are always waiting for me to discover them and remind me that all is well.

My summer was one of extremes and I am just beginning to take stock of what went down. Let’s begin today with a numerology – packed post for  events that occurred between 8-27-16 and 9-24-16, taking up most of the Virgo time period.

This is my receipt from my brunch at Cake on 9-4-16. It was quite a lovely meal that ended on a powerful note.

This blurry but angelic image was taken at McDonald’s on 9-5-16. I have been eating rather healthy since July, but I do have a thing for egg biscuits! I am human, at least some of the time.

This first picture was taken inside my car, Sascha, on 9-18-16 at the Willow Grove Giant lot.  The second one was shot on 9-24-16 driving home from the Flourtown Giant. I initially thought  the odometer was broke and only now theorized that when a car moves past 99999 to 100000 the tenth of a mile gauge becomes the mile gauge so it can appear the miles are not being measured, but they actually are. I am not certain about this, but I am happy the odometer is still functioning properly.

This milestone occurred at exactly 2:22 pm. I could not make this up! Interesting Giant connection too ~ just sayin’. I am now convinced it is time to finally get a new car. I see the 111000 mark as significant.

Many 11 sightings happen like clockwork, pun intended, but here’s one that is a bit unusual. My niece Lily came to visit me on 8-27-16 with my mom. I don’t see her often so it was a treat. She plays soccer and came over right after her game so she was wearing her jersey. It is number 11! While reflecting on it today I realized that  Lily, which can also be written lily = 111y!

I was told her soccer number assignment was random, but since she is a master teacher, I don’t agree.

Eclipse Frenzy

Lunar_transit_(captured_by_the_Solar_Dynamics_Observatory)

Wow, this is one major eclipse alright. It doesn’t literally take place until Tuesday, but there is plenty of mutable energy to go around. I have recently theorized that natal yods and powerful eclipses (in terms of both the eclipse’s unique aspects and how the event affects one’s natal chart) are similar in presentation. There is this sense of inevitability where no matter what choice you make, you will still arrive at the same destination. Do you agree about yods and potent eclipses? I would love to hear your opinions.

This brief post illustrates how eclipse energy can shine a spotlight on world affairs and individual pursuits. They are both one and the same and incredibly different, depending on one’s perspective.

Macro: We already have had 2 prominent American political figures pass away, and this may be just the tip of the iceberg. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and former First Lady Nancy Reagan have died recently, iconic figures of the conservative Republican era. It looks to me that this eclipse may be signaling the end of this era in US politics. How long will this take, not sure, but the symbolism here is palpable.

Nancy Reagan was a complex woman who could be seen as both polarizing  and greatly beloved. She was seen as being out of touch with society for her ” Just Say No ” anti-drug campaign and greatly respected for her incredible devotion to her husband President Ronald Reagan.

astro_2atw_01_nancy_reagan.77253.4602

I am not inclined to do predictions of death in my work, but wanted to highlight how her chart does align with tomorrow’s solar eclipse at 19 degrees ( technically 18° 55′ ) Pisces. Transiting Jupiter is conjunct her natal Jupiter Saturn conjunction on the 12th house cusp opposing Uranus in the 5th house. The eclipse opposes this conjunction  very close to her Neptune ruled 6th house of health. It is also striking to see her four planet Cancer stellium prominently lighting up her Midheaven. She clearly was a highly visible powerhouse who embodied the Cancerian conservative movement.

Micro: I have been personally absorbed with my multiple health problems and how to address the root causes. Some comfort has come by my seeking refuge in the Middle Earth fantasy computer game Elvenar and in following the bizarre presidential primaries. Both these obsessions have a crack-like quality ~ they offer a cheap euphoria that requires constant maintenance and a relinquishment of power and control. In other words, I could basically do little else and not care about the consequences.

However, I have been able to keep these addictions at bay long enough to share some magic of the numerical kind. After reading Sue Dreamwalker’s riveting post yesterday, I was inspired to shift my focus back to the signs and symbols of waking consciousness. Rather than remaining obsessed with test results and cat scans, I decided to use my drive to the grocery store in a more productive way. About halfway towards my destination, I chose to turn off the racket in my mind and really look at the cars and the street signs in front of me. Within seconds, a car with a NY plate had the numbers 2222 on it. Wow, that was fast, I said to myself. A few minutes later, I ordered some breakfast at McDonald’s. Here is the receipt:

Photo1102 (1)

 

Later at the deli counter, the sign on the wall tallied the current customer ticket that was ready for service, which was ticket 44. Could some angels be communicating with me? I certainly hope so. 2222 could reduce to 44. Clearly there was a repetitive 4 sequence pattern making itself known to me.

The point is, there is no time but the present, and Divine guidance is always waiting for us to heed the call. Thank you Sue for reminding me that we can always choose again and again to follow our intuition and stay in the flow.

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.

Today marks the birthday of Georgia O’ Keefe. She is another 11 -6/8 personality as her birthday was 11-15 and mine is 11-6. The 11/6 signature can be defined as mastery plus love transmutes into spiritual influence. What we also share is a love of art, nature, the Southwest, and freedom of expression. If you can get to Santa Fe to visit her museum, please do.

Until then, here’s a small sampling of her work :

Our planet is in dire need of healing. We may not agree on the methods.

One way I heal is by immersing myself in beauty.

Will you share what works for you?. I am interested in spreading the wealth.

There is no way to peace. Peace IS the way.

1111 ~ Just the Beginning

As if 11-11 isn’t enough, we’ve got a 19 degree Scorpio New Moon,  Diwali, and Veteran’s Day. There is a lot going on, that’s for sure. To top it all off, my birthday week is still in motion.

IMG_1374 (1)

That is a picture of my birthday cake taken by a friend. It has 1 candle so it works well with the 11 – 11 theme. As a gift to me and you, I am going to disclose my age. Some of you may know this already, but I turned 55! For so long, I have hidden certain facts about myself from myself. In other words, I don’t feel middle-aged inside ( most of the time), so I tell myself I cannot be my given age. I have posted before on aging and I still have work to do on acceptance. The first step is to stop tiptoeing around this subject. So I am 55, woohoo!

Besides, the age fits in so well with this post, so why not take the plunge? As I have mentioned before, becoming old enough to retire has been a tough pill to swallow. Let me explain further. When I joined city government, I had just turned 27. My birthday was on a Friday 11-6-87. Just 2 days earlier, on Wednesday 11-4-87, I met a man who was to become one of the major loves of my lifetime ( and probably other lifetimes.) On Monday 11-9-87 I started my first day of work and many of my coworkers were much older. They talked daily about reaching age 55. Then they could retire and take a full pension. Try as I might, I had a difficult time picturing myself at age 55. Guess what, I still do. But back then this age became a symbol of the end of the road. During the 18 years of my employment with the City,  I continued to hear about turning 55.

Now I am here. So what’s next?

Lots of synchronicity and a few more 5’s.

I find it fascinating that on the year I turn 55, all the days of the week line up just like they did in 1987. I thought that this would happen every 7 years, but it doesn’t due to leap years. I have been thinking of that 27th year quite a bit lately as I have anticipated this birthday. An unusual synchronicity capped it all off nicely: I was watching the docuseries Vice on Monday. It was a special segment on mass incarceration and the war on drugs. I highly recommend it if you want to learn more about how non violent offenders fare under the current system. Most of the episode takes place in a Oklahoma federal institution. Towards the end of the segment, they switch the focus to Philadelphia. All of a sudden I see a still shot of my old office from 1987. So on Monday 11-9-15, I am viewing my old office building exactly 28 years after I started working there, Monday 11-9-87. Why a show about prisons would be doing a feature on my city office building is strange indeed. What is super strange is the day I decide to watch it. The episode is old. But I rather randomly tuned in on Monday.

Yet if you have been reading this blog for a while, you understand. I set this in motion with my thoughts and the Universe delivered it to me in an unimaginable way.

So how about more fives?

Yesterday I reached level 55 on Farmville 2. That’s when I decided I would come clean about my age. This was after I kept noticing the $5.55 pizza sign at the local 7-Eleven ( 7-11 ) . So many numbers!

5 is ruled by Mercury and has to do with change and new beginnings. Effective today Saturn is transiting exactly conjunct my Midheaven. Guess what degree? 5 degrees Sagittarius. This is a humongous transit, a milestone that occurs once ever 29 years or so signifying the pinnacle of one’s calling coming into manifestation. To quote my blogger pal Amanda, I wonder if I am failing this transit.

But I digress and I will leave that thought for another time. Perhaps I should just leave it altogether.

To learn more about the numerology of 5 , visit this site.

Another synchronicity is that I changed my challenge post at the last-minute to one about the Grateful Dead. I mentioned in the post that a new incarnation has formed with John Mayer called Dead & Company. At the time I know they were playing on the East Coast. They were in Philly on 11-5-15 and DC on 11-6-15. On 11-7-15 they were back in NYC for a free show. Later that day ( still technically my solar return), I discovered a free livestream concert was available to anyone with wi-fi. So here I am watching a free Dead concert from my couch. Talk about manifesting out of the ethers!

One more 5 fact before I go, my sun is on the 5th house cusp for this year’s solar return. Change is on the way!

Happy 11-11 New Scorpio Moon! If I keep seeing 11s and 5s , they combine to 6s and 6 = love.  Wishing you love and lite on this lovely double Scorpio evening.

Dead & Company

The Lament of Venus and Other Tales

the-birth-of-venus-1912-2

Happy Saturday ( or Sunday) Litebeings!

I have been busy lately, constructing tales and allowing my musings to brew behind the scenes. Here are a few that are ready for consumption:

The Management Team 

Longtime readers know my frequent 11 sightings, typically arranged as 111 and 1111. Rarely does a day go by where I am not visited by numero uno in all its singular glory. I have been hoping to expand my repertoire by adding some new sequences to the mix. I am happy to report that 333 is becoming a regular fixture in my consciousness. I have been waking up at 333 am for several days in a row and also notice 333 pm with increasing frequency.

I recall doing some research on this sequence a while back when I had reached 333 followers. After a careful review, it is exciting to see how this new development will reveal itself. I know that the ascended masters are supposed to be close by during a triple 3 encounter. Does that mean that Jesus. Mary and Moses could be members of my management team? I have been seeking the identities of my guides for some time now. I have been patient with the process and have explored different techniques. I have made some headway with my power animals but they do not give me messages. They just show up and provide a safe haven. I am wondering if perhaps the 333 phenomenon is a hint that my team includes an ascended master or two. I honestly don’t know..

Understanding is overrated

I watched the latest Matt Kahn video and it really was a head-scratcher. I did not like the central teachering and my confusion and resistance bothered me. I usually will listen to the video intently and let the energy wash over me. With Matt, the energetic transmission trumps the content. And yet…

He suggests that understanding can add to division and disharmony and also self-judgment. He encourages us to acknowledge what we don’t know and to be as honest as possible. I am a rather honest person anyway, so I could not really relate to this idea of becoming more honest. I admit, there are several levels of honesty. I rarely talk without a filter and say the first thing that pops in my head ( anymore). But honesty is not a foreign concept to me. It is not where I need to stretch. I abhor dishonesty and learned very quickly that uttering even a little white lie does not sit well in my body. I am hard-wired for honesty. I will, however, practice proclaiming some of the areas where I lack understanding:

I don’t know when I will work again.

I don’t know where my next job will be or if I will enjoy it.

I don’t know who will hire me.

I don’t know why Dexter had to leave me when he did.

I don’t know if he is safe or still in existence.

I don’t know when life will seem to be natural again.

I don’t know if I will have another diverticulitis attack.

I don’t know what caused the initial attack.

I don’t know if this spiritual exercise is in my best interest.

Wow, that was depressing! What I did like was his assertion that spiritual growth is not about discussing consciousness but being consciousness. Yeah, I can get behind that. I do aspire to live as love and consciousness. I have a stellium in the 9th house and Matt asks us not to seek understanding. C’mon, that’s crazy.

What do you guys think? I am up for discussion here. Maybe I don’t understand the teaching.

Venus, where are you?

the-birth-of-venus-2.jpg!LargeWe are in the midst of Venus retrograde in Leo. Since it is currently in my 7th house of relationships and in contact with my ruler Uranus, natal Venus, and my Descendant, I was looking for some activity. It has been rather quiet for me, except for some awareness of loneliness without Dexter. No ex boyfriend sightings or communications other than in dreams, which is pretty much same-old, same-old in my world. While it is true that major transits do not always manifest outside of ourselves, I am still surprised by the lack of activity. Not everyone will agree that Venus retrograde is major, but I typically will attract lots of ex activity during these cosmic events. I wonder how you are faring. Any unusual occurrences?

Venus rules art and I am hosting an art museum Meetup do-over tomorrow. Maybe this is a more subtle movement that Venus has in mind for me. I am glad a couple of people signed up and I have a second chance to organize events for my friend’s Meetup community. I miss honing my leadership skills and having a chance to facilitate spiritual movements in others. I feel a void with so much focus on me and my health. While it is necessary that I up my game in terms of health maintenance, it is boring and often frustrating. However, being a grownup requires doing what is necessary and so I will continue on this road. The 6th house ( health and routine ) leads to the 7th house ( significant others) after-all. So I am taking probiotics and resumed chiropractic care with a new practitioner. It is exciting to try new approaches that are natural and more holistic.

It is also exciting to discover a new artist. All these gorgeous depictions of the birth of Venus are by Odilon Redon. I like the fluid, dreamy vibrations of these pieces. They definitely complement my mood today.

Here’s to a consciousness – in – action movement for all. As the sun moves into Virgo on 8/23, let’s strive to serve each other by loving ourselves with integrity and truth.
