Life is full of contrasts. Change is the one thing we can count on in life. Everything changes, sometimes dramatically as if in an instant. What was light is suddenly dark, or what is dark is suddenly brought to light. Other times change happens so slowly, with such small increments, that our human perception can hardly conceive it at all. Like a glacier, the ice appears static and still, but underneath there are currents of icy water, moving the frozen mountains above. They tumble forward, in a dance that only the songs of epics could inspire. Huge monoliths of ice will transform in the dark of night, so slowly, it’s hard to perceive. This too, can be the pattern your energetic movements from dark to light, or from light to dark.
December 22 is the Winter Solstice. On Tuesday we will experience the longest night of the year. It is a special moment in the annual cycle and has been celebrated and revered across cultures spanning all of human existence. From Machu Picchu to Stonehenge, the evidence of a history of human connection to the winter solstice marks our ancient earth with carefully constructed monuments.
Even our modern world responds to this energetic shift. Do you think it is a coincidence that the new Star Wars movie is opening around the time of the Winter Solstice? Continue reading
Your thoughts are real. They have energy attached them, energy that manifests in all ways. Your thoughts can pull you into a downward spiral, or they can spiral you upwards into elated ecstasy. It’s all about your present perspective and which direction your thoughts are pushing the energy. Shifting from one direction to the other can sometimes feel profound and at other times feel hardly noticeable. The smallest things can create the shift.
For example, say you are having a great day, you are looking forward to an important meeting and you are eager to make a good impression on the group of people you will be talking to. You start heading for the door and you suddenly realize your keys are not where you thought they were. You have misplaced your car keys. You start scrambling to find them, and with every minute that goes by, you are risking your chances of arriving to your meeting on time. Now you are late and you are focused only on the possible negative consequences of the present moment. All of that good energy you were feeling a few minutes ago is suddenly beginning to move in an unexpected direction… if you allow it to. Continue reading
… (a.k.a. Gemini Moon & Solstice Perspective Quantum Shift)
Today is June 16th and the New Moon in Gemini is very present for me. I’m feeling a surge of energy propelling me to take action in the realm of communication. I feel intuitively that over these next few days (before the Summer Solstice is upon us) we are being presented with a unique opportunity to reflect, reassess, and put our intentions for the 2015 calendar year back on a productive course. I’m just going to throw this out at you all as it is happening to me, and if you are feeling something interesting stirring inside of you as you read, I invite you to join me in this simple creative exercise I’m calling the Gemini Moon & Solstice Perspective Quantum Shift or “The UNSEEN.”
Some transformations can occur over a great length of time, while others can take place within a matter of days, maybe even hours, minutes, or seconds! It’s all about suddenly recognizing what has been unseen before, and taking a leap and opening your eyes and really seeing, what has been right in front of you all along. This is an opportunity I see being presented right now, today, tomorrow, this week as we honor Continue reading
