Prayers for Balance

 

MANDY OFFICER[3619]by Mandy Officer

Blessings to you as we enter a new chapter of seasonal change in celebrating the arrival of the autumnal equinox! Today marks the beginning of Navratri, the 9 day Hindu celebration of good over evil, as well as the International Day of Peace promoting respect & dignity for all peoples. What a powerful time to be alive on this planet. Great change is in the air. Collectively we are experiencing an upheaval of the elemental forces which have left millions across the globe without food, water, electricity or shelter. How do we process or feel this much turmoil within our being while somehow still maintaining our center? Even more, how can we quickly act to help our fellow citizens, our relatives, and what is the best use of our energy? It is hard to know which crisis to respond to. In our own region so many have recently lost their homes to wildfires, some carelessly started at the hands of others. In the south floods have ravaged the lands & winds have stripped the landscape bare. Even further south the Earth quakes with intensity while we helplessly watch vides of buildings crumbling & people scrambling for help. Across the globe people & animals are suffering at the imbalance of the elemental forces. What can we do?

In these times of feeling somewhat helpless to the myriad of catastrophes taking place, I am reminded to draw my energy back to myself and breathe, then pray. Whether you believe the forces of nature are intensifying due to climate change, geo-engineering or perhaps God’s way of punishing us for our misdeeds, I think the one thing most of us can agree upon is that a balance needs to be restored. I believe the only way to do this is by healing our relationship with the land. This involves cultivating an appreciation for the gifts of life that surround us. Each day we awake & are able to breathe in fresh air, that is a gift. That first sip of water you take each morning, remember that your life depends on that water. And it is time for all of us who recognize these gifts to stand up & be a voice for the Great Earth Mother, to thank the elemental forces so that they feel honored & appreciated. Indigenous cultures around the world have maintained practices for millennia that have ritually fed & honored these unseen beings. As colonization has stamped out many of these spiritual practices, many people have forgotten that we once held a much more sacred relationship with the Earth. And this is where the balance was maintained.

Recently I returned from an event in South Dakota called the Black Hills Unity Concert. This is a benefit concert to raise awareness around how the treaty rights for the Great Sioux Nation have not been upheld or honored. I have been blessed to support & watch this event grow over the last 4 years. This year, we had representatives of many nations come, an aboriginal elder from Australia, the Kogi tribe from Colombia, a traditional Tibetan musician & healer as well as chiefs of many tribes from across Turtle Island who came together to form an alliance, to stand up & protect this great mother of ours. It was amazingly powerful to witness the signing of a proclamation that recognizes our interdependence for not only our physical survival, but the survival of cultures that have a deep reverence for the gift that is life.

And so we can also make our offerings of gratitude as a way to restore balance, if only to heal our own connection with this primordial force. In this way, each day we can celebrate our own triumph of good over evil as we acknowledge all of the love that this Earth Mother holds for us.

With love,

Stellar Perspectives from Hungary

 

by Dr. Beatrix Czeizel & Anikó Greskóbeatrixczeizel_anikogresko__2_

We commonly think of stars as glowing aggregations of gas and fire, and thus we assume they could not possibly support life. Do you want to know something exciting, very personally useful and imperative for humanity? There are 230 stars mapped in Volume I and II of the Stellar Nations-Soul Families, The Cosmic History Chronicles of the Milky Way Galaxy that can be reached by our higher consciousness. We can learn to travel through dimensional gates into these completely different worlds. They are full of life, with varied forms of existence, destinies and stories.

Amazingly… we can come to know these stars as sentient beings. Even more amazingly, we can learn that these stars are composed of our soul particles; the stars hold a higher level of ourselves! While we live here on this Earth in our physical bodies, other dimensional aspects of ourselves inhabit various stars, congregating with other souls by mutual affinity; based on where we are on our Soul’s galactic journey and what we want to experience and learn. It is as if the various stars that we inhabit form the framework or “skeleton” for our larger Celestial Body. If you can take this concept in, you will realize that it is possible to know yourself on much vaster levels than our ordinary 3rd dimensional existence.

How does one learn all this? The Stellar Nations Volumes are living holographic maps. As one reads, lives and breathes with this information, exploring and absorbing each Stellar Nation, one comes to understand the mission and character of each Soul Family and the Light and Shadow qualities they carry. This is so helpful because these are OUR light and shadow qualities that we need to understand and work with to evolve as humans. As humans, we are meant to embody the different Stellar Nations and, over time, as one assimilates the understanding of the Soul Families, one gains the “language” necessary to really know and live more consciously with the higher dimensions. It is not a language of words; it is a language of dynamics, inner references and pictures that your higher Celestial Self can use to communicate your own secrets to you. This allows you to blossom into a grounded multi-dimensional understanding that comes from within and provides you with your truth.

Further, your Antares Code delineates your personal star imprints, your unique “Stellar Mantle”. Working with your Antares Code, understanding which stellar worlds and soul families you are reflected by, provides understanding of your soul’s unique galactic history and brings deep healing insights.

When we start to know the actual emanating powers and codes of the stars, the harmonizing and re-coding forces sent by the Celestials get a meaning. Comprehending the stellar codes opens memories and revelations in our consciousness. Then the spiritual power that comes from deeper understanding expands from that time on. But the full potency of the stellar rays that bathe us cannot be realized when we don’t know the stellar codes. Existence on Earth is defined by the frequency level of the collective consciousness of her inhabitants. To raise our collective dream into a Higher Reality, we need to perceive the true scope of our galactic beings.

To learn more, you can check the Blog section of the Stellar Nations website as that reflects on different aspects of the Stellar Nations cosmology. https://stellarnations.wordpress.com/

It is also very potent to follow the Messages of the Stars which are posted routinely. (Follow on Facebook or the SN website http://stellarnations.com/ ). These Messages tell of the stellar ray/s that are bathing us during a given period.

Tarot Reading for Fall 2017

 

laura.abernathy10 of Cups
“Satiety”

by Laura Abernathy, CPC, ELI-MP

Fall this year runs from September 22nd, 1:02 pm PDT, through December 21st, 8:28 am PST.

With the 10 of Cups, Satiety, as our Autumn card, our Wise Awakening community continues forward in the energy of water. As the watery Hanged Man trump card of Summer closes out, ask yourself if you felt that sense of receptivity flowing through the season? Was it easier to surrender to your Divine Higher Self? I would wager than any remaining blocks were wetly swept away in these final weeks like category 5 hurricanes!

The Hanged Man was a perfect entry into our emotional evolution. And having the 10 of Cups as our next road sign tells us that we have done very well in that emotional transformation. In Summer with the Hanged Man, we stood on the high dive board above the dark, menacing ocean of transformation, trembling with fear and courage, and dove in. The 10 of Cups says that we have surfaced amidst a now calm sea, exhausted yet reborn.

This means that, after a brief rest, we are ready for the next phase. First it is best tofocus on some basics like doing laundry, cleaning out the fridge and putting away the patio furniture. While we feel great peace from our recent deep inner work, we will begin to recognize a simmering desire for a change. As Fall moves into Winter, we will see this simmering come to a full boil and demand all of our attention. Approaching this new game we are being called to play, we will need maturity and balance. For the sake of our loved ones, we need to do our best to avoid criticism of others because our “inner lava” can do great harm right now.

This is a time to clarify what platform is best for us to engage with people emotionally, and it is time to take action to initiate it. For example, have you been working with people primarily one to one? Maybe it is time to work with groups. Have you been working from home over the phone or virtually? Maybe it is time to set up an office in town to see people in person. Have you been mostly working behind the scenes? Maybe it is time to be front and center. Have you been working in direct sales? Maybe it is time to write a book on effective selling. You have just completed a major life cycle (possibly decades long) doing it the current way, and it is time to be YOU in a better way!

In the imagery of the card, the ten cups are arranged as the Tree of Life. Behind the Tree is a sky reflecting a reddish glow of irritation. This illustrates the intense need for a complete and massive change of scenery, background or environment for the Soul to move into its next best form. Avoiding the need for this change will result in our misery and recycling back into old patterns that will not serve anyone. You already dove off the high dive board internally. Now it’s time to dive off the high dive board externally!

[Note: There are 22 trump cards, also called the Major Arcana, in a tarot deck. Each one describes a chapter in the hero/shero’s journey. This journey can be described as the Soul embarking on a quest to “Know Thyself”, returning home as a fully conscious Being, ready to fulfill one’s unique life purpose. Another way I like to describe this journey is the experience of traveling up the Tree of Life to “see the face of God”, and returning to the physical realm, alive and sane. For you left brain readers….the 22 trump cards start with zero – the Fool – and end with twenty one – the Universe (World).]
