May Soul Insights - Change, Release and Transformation

The roots of change run deep...

Very often we are receiving the cues, clues. messages and directions to our next step.   Forethought and resistance to "what is" blocks our own Inner Guidance and complicates what is unfolding.

My life has moved along in more fulfilling ways and with less drama as I have more consistently followed the resonance and the higher directive of the Higher Self.  It has not always been the direction or focus that my   "little self/ego" wanted or thought was advantageous.

There is a great saying by those that I have been working with individually  for a long time in our recognition of what we have learned on the Soul Path - Keep it to process....
We have become over the years attuned travelers of the Soul Path and supporters of each other's growth and endeavors.  We are each known to mirror to each other a reflective consciousness and the mantra:  "Keep it all to process" ... "Let it unfold"...

This May's focus is on change, release and transformation...
Keeping all to process and recognizing that you are in a process of letting go will help you acclimate and ride the changes of this month.   What is less and less resonating for you; as well as the conditions and relationships that no longer server your highest expression will be altering, changing and for some leaving....

Many of us have been taught that what no longer serves us; or what moves on from our experience must have been "less than" or not as expanded or important as what is coming in for us.  This is not necessarily true... It is a matter of degrees of resonance and coherence.  Something or someone can be good for us; and yet someone or something else can be even better for us and all concerned.

Be prepared to meet new people and be open to fresh ideas.  You don't have to ditch your "old ideas", goals or relationships; however it is time to make room for the new...   Don't fear the new. The new doesn't mean what is considered "the old" is no longer relevant.  New influences mean you are ready for more. Whatever this "more" is for you.  For some it will be more depth, awareness, for others more is new influences in the form of people and for others still it will be a clearing and awakening in their beliefs.  A clearing out to gain more clarity and a bigger expanded viewpoint.

Sometimes we don't realize we are in a rut of depressed because we surround ourselves with the routines and people that reinforce our own stagnation.  There is a difference in being in a "holding pattern" or gaining clarity to being stagnate  We cause our own stagnation when we resist and stop the gears of change in engaging.

We have to be engaged in our own process.  We are a part  of the process of shifting and change.  Remember, there can be no change without shifting.... Change happens with a lot of inner and/or outer shifts, even if it seems out of the blue.

This is also a time of reconstruction.  A time to shore up sails, do your housecleaning, and do what needs to be done to make your foundation more stable, consistent, understood and viable.  Releasing the past makes room for your future to unfold. This is a maxim in Metaphysical Principles and Esoteric Sciences.   As the past is released there is a mourning period that brings rain of tears that washes the present environment. This washing clears the air and the debris of what is no longer useful...  Renewal takes place in the space of releasing... The smaller or larger absences, losses and deaths are part of a greater cycle leading you to more Soul Growth and enhanced living.

Remember, the losses you experience are not only about you, but all those concerned.  In truth we are all interconnected like the roots of a great Oak tree... As you change and shift so do those around you.. .As those around you shift and change so will you.  The shifting may not be conscious to you; however the roots of change run deep and are always present, even if subconscious. It is important to note that your Higher Self knows the changes that are taking place, before you do consciously.

Use your tools of self care, inner work, and take time for self reflection.   You will be guided toward that which is most life enhancing if you listen to your own Inner Guidance and move with the winds of change...
Set your sails and let the winds of your own Inner Knowing and  Inner Guidance direct your outer moves. 

April Soul Insights - It's time again for more Soul Growth

We are already into the intensity of April and a combo theme keeps flaring up:
‘Fast movement’ – ‘Feeling Up in the Air’ – ‘Intensity’

All this intensity has Soul growth at it's core.  The personality is aligning more with the Soul.

Expect a lot of re-evaluation time; refocusing on goals and a feeling of things are just not jelling and are “just up in the air”.
Also, there will be a lot of fast movement – Decisions that have to be made quickly and situations that come from left field that you will need to respond to in a level headed way.  The key is level headed.  Extra meditation this month; especially mantra meditation will really be helpful so that when a trying situation comes in unexpectedly you will be able to pull back, get centered and make an optimal decision. You might even feel like you are charging around getting a lot of stuff done; and you will be getting a lot done. You will be able to do more in less time.

Intensity, is the bedrock of the energies this year and it is amplified this month. Expect the ‘intensity’ to intensify in also May - June when we enter the next Gateway-Portal of Light.

Many people are saying:   “Can’t I just get a break?”  - “When is this energy and intensity going to be over?”….
Not for a while, and in fact what is actually going to happen is that we are adjusting and adapting to this new energy pattern.  This is the energetic pattern of the New Emerging Consciousness’ which comprises the New Paradigm.

We all in varying ways and in ways that are individual to each of us being called to live more from the Soul and Higher Self. The Soul Aspect of our being is deeming that we do indeed grow…. We are being nudged, pushed, prodded, inspired and led to grow into more Soul Expression and extend this expression into the world.  This is not a time to hide your light under a bush or dim your light. It is time to shine fully bright.
Some people might even think that you are the intense one and perhaps you are acting from more passion; as well as vitality in your life.  Some of you may even be a little harsher or brasher.  This can be because on a subconscious level there is a feeling of needing to do more, extend out more and express more.  There is a feeling of urgency in the air.  This urgency signals that the tide has turned and we are all creating more from a Soul level than Ego level.

The Soul is the individualized aspect of The All That Is; or you could also say – Spirit, God, Universal Energies, Resonant Fields of the Universe…. The Soul is our physicality and physical expression. It is the sum of us mentally, emotionally, physically and is a unique version of Spirit.
How we live and express is ultimately an extension and revealing of our Soul; which is the uniqueness of our being.

This month will bring situations to you and relationship conflicts; as well as discussions that will point out to you and the other people involved the flaws, weak spots; and areas of disharmony in the relationship. 
This month will also bring an awareness and understanding of what you need in relationship. This can also be concern your relationship with yourself.   In truth the more we love ourselves the more we can love another person. In fact, the more we can love another being, a project and our life.  Love and acceptance is a prerequisite to more fulfilling relationships.

Many of you will meet a life partner that is a SoulMate or your Twinflame.  Purposeful and relationships of deeper meaning will be the focus and highlighted.  You will see some of your more surface relationships fall by the wayside.  You will become very aware of whether you are living Soul purposely enough or not… If not there will be challenges to get you to ‘grow up’… This ‘growing up’ is actually growing into more authentic being, expressing and relating.

For many people, the more surface relationships will wind out of your life, not out of anger, but out of no longer being in enough resonance with you.
Get the support you need and look to the present challenges as a call for more Soul growth and to connect more fully with your life’s purpose and create deeper meaning in your life.

March Soul Insights - Your Relationships hold the key

This month will require more of you and test your patience.  The rewards are many, but be prepared to be patient not only with others but yourself.  Also, be prepared to listen....really listen and hear what those you are in relationship are saying. You will also have to listen to, really hear and understand what the various parts of you are saying.

Getting to the heart of the matter in your relationships and understanding what really matters to you will be very important this month.  The test this month is a test of love... A love test... This test will come via your relationships, creative expression and how connected you are to your Inner You.... The word test comes from the derivation of the words temperance and tempatation... Both words signify balancing, adjusting; as well as integrity and wholeness.
When we are not in balance, when we are not temperate we are not living optimally.

This month it's time to be really honest about what has been "holding you back". What behaviors, beliefs or associations.  Honesty is key.  Are your actions, beliefs and associations supporting the best expression of you?  Are your associations, friends and decisions in alignment with your true desires and goals?

This month communiciation will be highlighted and also a yearning to connect, share, cooperate and collaborate.  The idea of relationship will somehow be on everyone's mind.  For some it will be how can i make my relationship better, appreciate it; or spend more time together. For others the thoughts will center around being desireous of a significant other and the romance this can bring.  Business relationships will also be a focus and for many the realization that 2 heads are better than one.

March will bring an awareness that we are not alone and we are not meant to do "it" [life] alone.  We are to be with each other and share with each other.  We are to let their be some separateness in our togetherness.  This allows us to be individual souls and yet connect and let our souls merge in love and a shared focus.

Forms of  exchange will be highlighted this month.  Some questions to ask oneself are:
Does this exchange feel right for me?  Am I open enough? Too open? Am I giving enough, recieving enough from this?
This is not about living a life based on "tit for tat". However the universe and world is based on energy.  Everything is energy.  We are energy - we are energetic beings.   When we have too much of something, even a good thing we become weighed down.  When we don't receive enough we aren't grounded and tend to wither away.   There is an optimal balance in all of life and this month will bring you situations and relationship issues to the forefront to adjust the balance of energy.

Many of us have been taught to not want or ask for much.  To not take up too much room and not to show all you have or show that you know a lot... Well, this minimizes your energy and creates a contraction in your energy and life. It is time to open up more and be even more fully you.... It is time to express more of you and to not only ask for what you want, but to actively create more of what you want.
Take this month to expand your self expression more in ways that let you connect and share with those in your life more.

There may be some disagreements, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or over emotional responses this month that test your patience. However, it will be worth it....
A friend of mine once shared a saying with me after an enlightening conversation about people and relationships.  She said: "Where two or more are gathered there is drama".  Over the yearsI have learned yes, this is true.... No matter how evolved someone is there are areas of emotional  charge and restimulating triggers for everyone. I have seen this in all groups, organizations; whether spiritually based or secular.  The testing in March is to really understand this and honor this as an aspect of the human life cycle.....

In other words, to relate or not relate? This is the question...... For me it's to relate.........Don't let the fear of drama or being hurt stop you from reaching out and relating.  Don't wait for the perfect one, but be with the one that is here, showing up and being in relationship with you.   Relationships hold the key to our growth and Soul expression.  There is a reason we are so focused on relationship... When you realize this and understand the reason for this then you have the key.... Once you have the key the door is open in gratitude and appreciation.  This will sustain you.... There is wisdom in knowing and living this axiom.  In the New Paradigm you can't move forward and thrive alone... On your own, but not alone.

This month let your divine self dance with your human self and begin to see them as both one in the same......It is all God...All part of the Play of Consciousness....All is from and of The All That Is......

And, if anyone says otherwise they aren't being fully honest of those times "when no one is watching", when they are on their own or with their family.

This month it will become quite clear that love is the answer, and to remember the misgivings and human dramas we experience are all worth it, because to love and be loved is quite an amazing thing.


Initition and Activation as Life Direction

This is a year of initiation and activation.

Where you are being activated will show you what you are learning on a Soul level and what you are to now integrate into your life.  This is the way of the Soul.... Your Soul Self/Higher Self; which is the Highest Navigating aspect of "you" shows you your new directions by placing or removing people, situations and activities in your life....

Look to see what is being "activated"in your life and what you are being "initiated into'...

Your initiations are new phases, learning lessons and areas of expansion in your life.

Look to see what is being activated in your life.  Follow the natural flow of what is showing up for you.  There will always be what is of more Soul Expression and Soul Growth in following the natural flow of what is being presented to you.  This present is a gift to you...

The gift maybe in learning, expressing more; perhaps a new relationship; or new career direction.
For some the gift comes in challenges to be overcome; whether in the area of one's health, relationships or any other hardship.
Just know that in seeking more self understanding and love that you will reach a place of more love received and Soul Expression.

In essence what blocks you ultimately sets you free and this freedom and knowledge you can share with others in love and service.

On the Soul Path we are always learning, growing and expanding more into our Soul Expression.
This Soul Expression is what characteristically makes you "you"...
In essence expressing from your Soul is you being more you...

In my life now and in my Soul Path i am seeing more themes revealed.... Look to the themes in your life.  For most there will be 3-5 reoccuring themes that need to be weaved together to be more Soul Fulfilled.

Whatever the themes that are showing up and revealing themselves in your life seek balance to the full expression of "who you are"....

Remember you are a spiritual being and how you express and experience this is your Soul and Soul Purpose....

We are all special, unique Divine Emmanations seek ways and act upon ways to express this more and more....

February Forecast- How to Recognize True Opportunity

Doors are opening and windows of vision are as well.... Time to dream big and connect with a more inclusive vision.  Don't think in "either- or" terms.  
Think in terms of "and - both"  You can have more and live a bigger better version.  Whatever this is for you.
February brings a focus of on opportunities… This month also brings more of a yearning to connect with one’s Higher Self /Soul Self.  The actual essence of your being.
Take a look at what is brewing in your life and what is being placed in your pathway.
After the releasing, letting go and making peace with the losses of January it is now a time to fill up.  Where January brought more of an inward focus February brings a focus on activation.
You will need to find ways to fit in your contemplation time.  For many there will be so many options, openings and opportunities it might seem hard to decide the “right” direction.
This is where following what is of the most resonance, coherence and what is most life enhancing for you is key.   Don’t push. If  “it” doesn’t fit give it some time. If you don’t understand, let the ideas or the communication marinate.
True opportunities don’t need to be pushed for.  There might need to be consistent effort and follow through; however if you are finding yourself pushing then use the vehicle of time for additional clarity.
Clarity of intent will also be a focus this February.  For many this clarity of intent and how to put more intention of what you intend will be a focus for most of this year.  Look to see what you are drawing in at this time in your life. If it doesn’t match or fit your vision, then reassess your intention and how you are using your attention.  Are you putting your attention on your intention?  
Ask yourself if your activities, beliefs, friends, routines are supporting your overall focus and vision?  If they are not; then why not and how can you make them?  It’s not enough to have a great intention and vision if you don’t do the action steps to prep, create the openings and follow through with activities and routines that support your desires.
Family and friends will also be important during this month.  Share with those you feel a close connection to and be open to magical helpers and collaborative efforts.  Effort will pay off; however make sure you are struggling and forcing issues.
 This month you will have a really good chance to find your own personal flow.  Don’t be surprised if you are handling much more than you “thought” you could.  Intuition and listening to your body will be key.  Your inner wisdom and instinctual awareness through your body will be a good guide for you.
Take time to be in gratitude for all that is opening for you and take the time to share this with those you admire and love.

January Soul Insights - Releasing and Moving Forward

January, as you may have already noticed brings a focus on releasing and parting ways with people, situations and expectations that are no longer life enhancing.

What is no longer serving you will begin to be not just a "pebble in your shoe", but a boulder that wants to be cleared in your eye.

When we hold onto what is not truly supporting us, enhancing our life and us; or in resonance with us we create a stagnation of our energy.  Holding on holds us back....

It's not that we need to always have forward movement, but we do need to have a fluidity of movement in our life.  In essence moving forward is being in the present.

We can't move forward and be fully in the present if we are held back by the circumstances of our past.
Our past doesn't hold us back. We do.....
In truth our past, present and future our simply forms of the same experience.  What we experience and our take away from our experiences are what either holds us back or brings us into the gifts of the present.

This month you might be seeing and feeling where you need to move on....Or, I should say move forward into the present.

You will be seeing the out picturing of past patterns.  The call here is to see where you are repeating patterns that are not in the most resonance and coherence with your life and goals.  In your life look to see what is "over".  This doesn't necessarily mean it will not be in your life, however the way it is in your life will be up for change.  If something or someone is bounced out of your life just know that a more resonant and coherent version will be placed in your life.

Also, look for areas in your life that need support.  Support is a great thing.  It not just props you up; but it can be the routine that helps you build.  Support can also be people and community.... Remember community is comprised of people.

Look for ways to branch out in your life.  Stretch your boundaries and dare to dream a bit more.  However, don't just dream, but begin to take quantified action on your dreams. It is a time of contemplation, but also initiation.

Whatever has been ruminating in your mind is worth taking action on, even if you don't "stay with it".  You won't know where your ventures lead you.... Next steps are created by first steps.

Take time to meditate, pray, contemplate, journal and connect within. 
The insight you receive now will show you what is opening for you and what you need to release to move forward. What you release now; as well as this year will allow you the transformation to spread your wings and fly.

Hey everyone :-)

I have been in a major move and transition, plus an expansion of Awakenings so, the 2015 post will be published and provided to you in February.

A big part of my learning on my path right now is being able to do just what "I can do with what I have".... So, I am releasing some "perfectionism"!!!! YAHOOOO!!! :) LOL... Not always easy to do.....

I wanted to  address the energy and focus of January that people have been asking on my radio podcast; as well as emailing me.

Tell next time  :-)

Moving Past Disappointments and Past Hurts

Are you sitting with disappointments?
Is your outlook on life bending downward due to feeling let down?

Are these past hurts, let downs and areas of past disappointment riding sidesaddle with you?

Subconsciously and sometimes with full awareness we hold onto our disappointments and nurture them like a long lost friend.

They can be a “friend’ because “they” are always there….

They are there in every relationship right on the sidelines or in every dream acting as a buffer.

We hold onto these as well as resentments as a form of protection.  They are a constant reminder of what “didn’t work” and to “not to really hope again”…..
They protect you from going too deep, too far, having “too much fun” and ultimately from feeling too much joy….

If you are sitting with these they are like undigested food and become toxic, when not allowed to be processed it.

It’s not that we won’t get disappointed, be let down or even experience resentment; it’s when we don’t process this energy and emotional state through; or we don’t express it in a way to release it….

You then need to find ways to channel this energy for your own self expression and through service; or a creative outlet….

We naturally want to and need to move past disappointments, let downs and resentments.  It takes a lot of energy to hold these and keep these in place.

If we allow ourselves to move toward our joy then our resentments and disappointments begin to wane and dissipate.  A good example of this is children; especially one's that have been allowed to be in their own rhythm and flow.  They naturally move on and lose interest in what bothered them, disillusioned or disappointed them.  They are drawn to what is new and catches their "eye" and interest.

When we do our "emotional healing inner work" we keep ourselves open to not only the new, but the gifts of the present.  We essentially are saying I am open to the magic and wonder of love and life.

We also can't grow if the past is weighing us down and holding us back.  Our growth and the expression of our Authentic Self and Soul Purpose is directly tied to our ability to release and "move forward"; which is really move into the present to Self Express.
When we naturally release our disappointments we "free up" ourselves to be more true and authentic.

If your voice is low, hesitant and hedging then you are energetically holding back due to disappointments or resentments.  This is a form of apathy.

If your voice is booming, radiating out saying:  “Hey I’m here and I’m in joy and willing to play, then you have processed well and moved on….

Most likely the people around you will notice if you are harboring these energetic friends way too long…..

It’s time to move on, get on the slide of gratitude and joy for a new day…..

No matter how bad it’s been; or even is now there are better days and in the moment something to feel gratitude and appreciation for…..

Take time to let these old travel partners go…. Give them a hug…Well, hug yourself and know you did the best you could and so did the people in the past part of your life…..

Then open your mouth and laugh; or yell – You decide…. But time to let the wall down and let your own life in…..

It’s really time to play and it’s hard to play when you are lugging around a 10 – 40 lb weight of buffer by your side.

December Forecast - Stumbling blocks can be stepping stones…

This month there are many openings, opportunities and situations in mid swing.
Think of yourself as a trapeze artist in mid swing… You are at the point of leaving the platform to fly and you have not yet landed.
This position in midair requires a lot of trust and at the least faith.  Being stuck in midair; or in the middle of a situation doesn't mean there isn't an optimal or postive outcome. It requires faith, trust and belief in a pervading 'higher power'...  This month there is a call to recognize that which is unseen and that there is a power deeper and more intrinsic than what we can know cognitively.  There is a Divine Power... This power is based on what is most optimal and innately focuses on healing to bring more balance, peace, calm and fulfillment.
You might find yourself dealing with “old recurring patterns”; or situations you thought you moved on from and left behind.
The focus this month is on “new beginnings and following the openings; however they appear”.
Try not to over focus on the blocks… Many times what blocks us on our Soul Path ultimately is either a learning lesson or the an opening we couldn’t yet see.
As humans we tend to be very literal.  We tend to also focus on externals.  What I can share with you is that externals are not the totality of what is unfolding in our life. Many times what we do not see, but do feel is the truth of a situation or the beginning of what is coming to be in our life.
The New Emerging Consciousness of the New Paradigm requires that we see with our mind’s eye and intuitive self; which means we need to see beyond our “physical eyes”.
The “New Emerging Consciousness” is just that… It is a consciousness that is newly emerging.
This means that it is new to us- the ego; or personality “us”.  So, this new way of being and acting is something we all are learning and integrating in our life.
Since we are all learning “this something new” we need to give it time and also be aware of the fact that there is some anxiety and fear associated with this new way of being and expressing.
For the ego part of us; which is the part that likes to keep the status quo, this way of being and acting is very unfamiliar.  When we use tools like meditation and various forms of inner work to get past the ego part of us we do feel a great sense of familiarity in this way of being and acting.  This new way of being and expressing is of the Soul. 
When we are Soul Led and Soul Fueled we do get into uncharted territory.  To live the way of the Soul we need to trust the Soul Self/Higher Self.  This is the part of us that leads via intuition and feeling beyond feelings.
This December will bring a lot of converging situations and some will be coming to a head.  For some this will mean situations that seem confusing or uncertain and for others it will be situations that they feel they don’t have the control.
The reason this is happening is for all of us to depend more on the Spiritual Aspect of our being and to focus on Soul Qualities.   It is time to move past over egoist and material concerns.
The material part of the earth experience is important; however when it over shadows the spiritual – intuitive-feeling part of us this creates and imbalance that over time becomes toxic. 
This month it is time to focus more on feeling… This is the feeling beyond feelings. Feeling what is right for you and what is optimal for you.   Feeling what is in your heart. It is not about feeling good or bad; but learning to feel from an intuitive self.  Feelings are amazing, as well as emotions.  All feelings and emotions are ok.  They only become toxic when they are chronic – stuck states.  It isn’t so much what you feel, but how you process, or allow it to move.
The feeling that is beyond feelings is the realm of the intuitive or psychic.  Psychic means coming from the psyche or soul.  There are a type of feelings that are based on intuition and not emotion.  This is the pathway of expression and interpretation that we are all being led to on a Soul level.
For many so much will open this month.  All is a preparation for the next level of the New Paradigm.  Your thinking and analyzing will not help you’re here or help you navigate this terrain. What will help you is to focus on enduring values, love, connecting, sharing and what you feel in your heart.

This month don’t push, don’t pull, don’t try and force.  See and feel what is unfolding for you and seek ways to assist in the direction that is unfolding.  The opening and opportunities that are now coming into the forefront will be more important for you than you might perceive at first.
This month begin to see how your stumbling blocks will now lead you as steps and stepping stones to your next level.

November Forecast – Seek Inner Dimensions & Outer Expression

This month brings a bit of a polarizing energy experience.
On the one hand there is an energetic pull to reach out, extend out and activate.  
A part of the energetic pattern this month is to push us or pull us up, out and forward. The energy beckons us to reach out, explore the outer realms and outer relationships.
The other aspect of this polarity is to go within, to go deep, to sleep to lull into dream states.  There is an energetic pull to go within and cocoon, to cuddle with someone; or be alone with one’s own thoughts and inner embrace.
It would bode well to think from the Soul connecting into one’s Higher Self; or expanded aspect of consciousness and do both.
In the Spirit realm and therefore the Soul the urge is always for both… 
The word “both”; as well as “and” are Soul words.  The signify expansion and inclusion.  They also imply balance, and resting in the center of the polarity plane.  “And” as well as “both”  are words and actions from these words that encourage a new possibility.  This possibility comes from not being stuck rigidly in either end of the polarity plane.

We are entering a Gateway/Portal of Light this month and so there is also an intensification of energy.  There is a push to do more and you will be feeling more of whatever you are feeling and experiencing.

Just because there is an intensification of energy doesn’t mean that we have to intensify…
These Gateway/Portals of Light are occurring as an acclimation tool and barometer of the energy pattern of the New Emerging Consciousness of the New Paradigm.

We all are learning to allow, absorb and acclimate to more electrical energy and being more magnetic.  This means we are learning to let the “Feminine Principle” lead in receptivity to the “Male Principle” of Creation.  Meditation, being in nature, movement, unstructured dancing, listening to music and other right brain emphasized activities are a great help.

This month take some time to pull back, check out, tune in, go within and connect inwardly…
This month also take the time to extend out, reach out and connect outwardly…
Balance is key this month and playfully, without self judgment, learning how to manage and harness this new energy pattern.  Much will be done by not resisting or fighting, but by allowing what is and finding optimal ways to align with it.

October Soul Insights Forecast- Hope Springs Eternal

Hope can be like a sprout from a plant or a sprout of a new leaf on a flower. It is like new growth that needs to be nurtured along to fully sprout and blossom.

When we are hopeful, we not only believe, but know things can get better. Partly because they have in the past.  

Hope is a door opener... Hope sees openings in cracks, fissures, breakdowns and see growth in decay.   

Hope does "spring eternal", and not in a "Polly Anna" way.
Hope is an life enhancing frequency and brings about resonance, healing and optimal health.

For some reason many on the " New Thought", Metaphysical and Spirituality Path have "poo pooed' 'hope'.  Many say: it is like "trying" and to not try, but "just do it".... Well, I don't know about you, but "trying" I know is a prelude to doing or knowing.  Trying implies persistent effort; and it is in our "trying" that we have the breakthroughs. It is also in our hoping and the state of 'hope' that we not only shift our circumstances, but bring about the answer and/or better circumstances in our life.

October bring a focus on hope, openings and more directions being revealed.
If you have felt a bit like you are in a fog on top of a mountain or in the mists of Avalon October will bring further clarity and understanding.

The key is to keep an open mind, go with your heart, trust you gut and listen to what feels most optimum to your body.  Your body is an amazing receiver, tuning fork, and transmitter.

Expect to drawn in people from your past in uncanny and synchronistic ways.  It is ok to have realistic expectations.   These are different than attachements.  Expectations set an intention in the Universe and your relationships... They show you the dynamics, the needs/wants and the potential of what is unfolding... Release the need to over control or be overly attached.

Bond with love and leave some space for the unfolding to occur.
There is a greater focus on relationships and overcoming misunderstanding.  If for some of you there are more misunderstandings than understandings remember:  

                                         Misunderstanding is a prelude to understanding ~
                                                               Carol K Anthony 
                                                          A Guide to the IChing

Being more authentically focused, trusting yourself and being yourself are really key this month.
Taking the time to really see and know what sustains you, nourishes you and fulfills you in your life; as well as relationship will be a major focus.

This month take time to look around.  Reflect, review and renew what brings you hope.  Gratitude is a state of mind and action that harnesses the energy of 'hope' 
Wherever you are hopeful there will be openings, beneficial connections, dreams fulfilled and miracles.


September Soul Insights - The Fool on the Hill with a Bit of Wisdom

This month expect the unexpected and be open to change and surprises on all levels.  Expect disruptions in your environment and routine, and for some in your mind.... New thought patterns are peeking through and for many people this starts an inner urge for major change.  This urge for change will definitely be for many in the area of their career and "work purpose".... You will want to define your life more and refine it to better suit your current needs, desires and Soul Expression....

Life is transition and change; however there are times when this is emphasized and prevalent.

September is about breaking up the monotony and being open to change.
Sounds pretty "matter of fact" and like an everyday truism; except that as "human beings" we not only don't like change we resist it.

Many people that I have met over the years that state:  "I love change. Change is just a part of life" are unfortunately many times the most "stuck" people that I know.  They really are not open to change, and many of these people think that change is having a lot going on.... This is not always reflecting change.

Change is first and foremost internal...It is a lot of feelings that are ambiguous at best and rising uncertainty, doubt and discomfort at the worst.  The "inside job" kind of change is when you begin to feel a subtle "pressure" that something in your life no longer quite fits the same. You also will feel, what spiritually is termed " Divine Discontent".... This longing, urging, nudging, prodding discontent is coming from your Soul.  It is the urge to grow and for more.

Sometimes the urge to grow or for more is actually a call for less.  To lessen your life load.  This lessening, thinning and pruning can be getting rid of "stuff".  However, when the deeper levels of this pruning come over you the "stuff" you will be getting rid of is also the need and use of titles, names, training, agendas.  The lightening that occurs requires a stripping down.  Many in the area of Self Development and Spirituality call this:  "Becoming childlike again and having child-like wonder".  The difference is now you have the wisdom, the life experience coupled with this wonder, awe, curiosity, openness.... It is child-like innocence coupled with wisdom.... This is why so many great Sages, Mystics and even the Buddha are tricksters and have such a great sense of humor.... They see and feel the absurdity and depth, the meaning and meaninglessness of life.... It is all full circle.

This month find ways to make peace and come full circle... Prepare to begin again, and this time with even more joy and openness.  It is the time of the "Fool".... The Fool sees the journey far ahead and embarks anyway... The Fool also underestimates the ETA, and what is on the path.  The Fool falls short and comes out even better than expected... And, this is key.... "Better than expected".... The Fool shows us our folly in planning, and yet we need to plan.... It is a form of folly to judge our circumstances and others because on a little self/ego level we don't and can't see the whole picture. It is folly to think we are alone or have to do 'it" all on our own.... It is folly to not ask for help. It is folly to dive into the waters of relationship and hope to not get our toesies wet...

It is folly  to think we have "arrived somewhere, or "think we are something" when we are always arriving and always becoming something"  On a Soul level we are always in an unfolding, and yet the purpose of the human ego is to maintain and stabilize what it perceives "we have become".... It is folly to think we are finished.....
See your folly and laugh... Laugh a deep belly laugh....

Take this month to find ways to see the circle of life and circuitous aspect of your life path. Notice what is repeating and find ways to bring peace, understanding and compassion to this; as well as gratitude.... Gratitude will move you along the spiral of light and life more completely and in more of a fulfilled manner.
Begin to "schedule in more play time"... See the absurdity in this - to "schedule in"... It is time to consciously live and integrate the duality of this Passion Play.

You cannot rise above what you cannot see....
