Weekly Guidance: August 21st, 2017: Learn to embody higher energies

Happy Eclipse and New Moon!! 

The Moon card came forward this week to remind us to go inward.  Solar eclipses happen during New Moons, and new moons are all about release and integration of shadow. And it's new moon in Leo. So we're going to get bold, bold enough to confront our past and move through it. Bold enough to let go of things we never thought we would be to release because they formed such a strong lesson point in our lives. But even good lessons sometimes need to be let go, so that we can begin taking in new lessons and deeper lessons.

As we roll into Tuesday (some parts of the world will still be in Eclipse energy) we'll have a master day after our revelations. While master days are typically days where we are being asked to stand for ourselves and our work, we're still in Mercury retrograde. So this might be an excellent day to try something new or trying things in a new ways. It might well very be a day when you can let go some bad past experiences and try something that felt like "failure"  or "hurt" before with new eyes and heart.

The Messenger Oracle card, "Respect your Boundaries" and the Enchanted Map deck "Come together", show that while things might be lifting, we still need to make sure we are leaving ourselves the time and space to finish the inner shifts we have begun. That might include some extra alone time, daily practice "work", and making appointments with uplifting friends and peers for some planning and dreaming time. We are still in an energy of being able to experiment with different changes, but as Saturn goes direct over the weekend we'll come a point where we'll be able to make more solid choices. And once we are really able to get some momentum going, we can be more ready for meeting the world as it is again.

Vesta rounds the reading for the week. The message "Your household situation is improving, either through a move or a healthy change in the occupants." isn't entirely literal. While relationships, authority, and trust might have brought some issues to the home-front, this season hasn't had the "homey" energy that we had in June and at the beginning of the year. But the message is certainly poignant, in that life in general is going to improve and flow easier, as the week goes on, as we begin to integrate and get real with all the changes and shifts this eclipse has brought for you. 

Remember to take some time for embracing the sacredness of your life and this time of year!

 

And here's part 2

What does this mean for the intuitive biz Goddess?

This week should be geared toward things like:

  • Building some new or improved action plans with your clients.
  • Refreshing your marketing plans and opportunities to "get out there in the spotlight".
  • New product ideas or ways to serve your following might hit you out of the blue.
  • Since we're not out of Merc Retro yet, we still have two weeks to go, this is the time to make sure your clients are being realistic about their new plans, ideas, and changes. It's at time to help your clients research and experiment with trying new things out. Don't commit to action plans and huge investments of time and money now unless flexibility is part of the desire for the project or idea. If something more stable is desired, wait until after Merc goes direct in early September to solidify plans.

August monthly reading and weekly reading: 7/31/17: Take your mountain head on!

Can you feel the energy shifting already?

As we move further into August, loves, keep in mind that feelings of discomfort don't always mean something bad is about to happen. "Bad" in and of itself is a judgement against what is happening and can keep us from recognizing blessings in disguise. And this whole month is going to be chalk full of blessings in disguise.  

This isn't the month to back down. Take a look back at the readings from the last two weeks. This month is going to be a month where our passions are going to be ignited. While passion and of itself is part of the stuff miracles are made from, what sparks your passion aren't always high vibe feelings. You could get angry, more annoyed, more pressed for time, what ever the trigger, you have to seek the deeper meaning.  Deeper doesn't mean harder or more time consuming...or even energy consuming...it just means looking at WHY this trigger is coming up now. What is actually trying to come more into your conscious awareness about the trigger or about that kind of circumstance.

Weekly reading: July 31st: Take your mountain head on

 

Starting next week, we're going to have 5 planets in retrograde motion, so it's going to be a busy month of self-exploration and clarity. We're going to get an overhaul in issues regarding authenticity, trust and self-trust, communication and presentation, leadership and self-leadership, spirituality, our personal power, and a shit load of past wound and shadow-soul healing. You can't shy away from this amount of change and hope if you stick your head in the sand that you feel uncomfortable. We have take this mountain head on.

 

Starting this week, what loose end and extra preparedness can you take? How can you schedule more proactively or work ahead so the rest of the month goes more smoothly?

Don't forget to get the whole reading of my Monday FB livestream on replay!! 

What does this mean for the lightworker Soulpreneur, the biz goddess?

Your clients and audience are going to be feeling the shake up. Some might try and hide, worrying over what the government or the world at large is going to do to them. Other could try taking this head on, delving into the bits and pieces of their lives or buisnesses that they need more work on (that tying of up loose ends so the whole biz system works more efficiently and in your/their favor). People will also be more given to changing the way they look and the way their life feels. This is going to be very close to a soul-level make over, and we should be there for support and common sense reality checks for others. This high energy won't last forever and if you we can help one person stay away from the hangover of too much, too soon a month from now, we'll have done a great service!

 

Get your planning and scheduling done this week, so you don't have to feel the pressure of trying to stay as consistent as your biz demands AND diving into these transformative energies. Give yourself some breathing space so you can make the changes you need to make as well!! Defend your boundaries with love and don't even bother feeling guilty!! Next week the adventure is really going to start!

Weekly Reading: July 24th, 2017: It’s time to take the hero’s journey!

What's going to fuel your revolution, lightworker?

The next two months is going to be intense, loves. It's time to stop shying away from the harder work, the work that will expand who we are, expand our sense of self, our sense of what we are capable of sustaining and creating. The transitions times, like the eclipse season that will begin this week and mercury retrograde, which is coming up, are going to get us in touch with what we honestly care about....by hook or by crook. Our path is taking us to a formidable mountain in our lives, and we have to embrace the adventure to prevail and grow. 

I know it's thing in the new age community to try and stay out of negative emotions like anger and out rage.  Most believe you should strive to not have those feelings at all. But I am not ones of those people. I believe in the sacredness of our feelings, even the lower vibrational ones. All feelings, even anger, is a sacred piece of guidance being given to us for a reason. I'm not saying it's okay to stay stuck in anger for the rest of your life. But without anger how will be create the momentum needed for big change?

 

I'm not just talking about signing a petition. In order to create large ripples we must first be activate by deep outrage over an issue we care deeply about.  We must first walk in the fire before we can master the fire and bend it to our will. If we don't ever attempt transmutation of that base feeling, we're going to get burned. Too much fire, no outlet. But this goes right along with my theory of what grounding really is. See the livestream for a longer explanation of what I think grounding really means. But we need that fire to find the truth within us, to burn away the blame we might carry, the guilt we punish ourselves with. Once we understand why the fire is burning within us, what really sparked the flame, we begin to make that transmutation, that healing back to center. The up-level of growing soul, one who is learning to carry more and more Divine energies and Truths into the world. 

 

Those initial feelings of anger and outrage fuel our dreams and passion, they fuel our growth. While our revolution in life might ultimately be about love or even more self-love, it begins when witness the suffering someone is going through, perhaps we are putting ourselves through.  This month is going to bring that kind of clarity forward. It's going to put us on the path up, over, or through our personal mountains (obstacles in life, ways we are holding ourselves back). It's time to take the hero (or heroine's) journey. 

As we begin the transition into eclipse season, this week is giving us a boot camp experience in following our bliss no matter what and in using not ideal circumstances to create fuel for the change we are seeking to create for ourselves and the world. Use this time to make your prep list for the real event!  

What do you need in order to make this mountain journey a kick ass event in your life?

Don't forget to get the whole reading of my Monday FB livestream on replay!! 

What does this mean for the lightworker Soulpreneur, the biz goddess?

It's going to be worth the work this week to double your self-care and centering practices because this week is the week to begin your journey to deepen your spiritual leadership. Expect Murphy's law to rule, but be grateful when things go smoother than you prepared for.  Don't take this to mean you have to grin and bear the tough stuff. In fact, this week could very well turn out to be a good test run of smoother boss lady procedures to help minimize frustration later this month!! Keep a running list of things that should be up-graded or fine tuned before Merc. retro begins in earnest!!

Keep it light this week with your peeps, serve to set the example that we don't have to take ourselves or our problems so seriously we drive ourselves nuts!!  

Bring the love, loves!!

Weekly Guidance: June 26th, 2017: Be the source of all you wish for your life

 

So how was solstice for you??

Those amazing high vibes are going to continue for the week ahead and as we head into the last Super New Moon of 2017. A cold finally caught with me this week, and so I took the hint and took things slow. Dreams and potential have been filtering through for me. While not all of those potentials were things I would necessarily like to see come to pass for myself and my family, this month has been about getting into alignment with what is actually best for us. Considering the things that have been circling in my life and the lives of my family and friends, just about the only thing that's really holding us back from making life change is how we judged that choice in the past. Circumstances might just be shifting to places where we never thought we might go, and it's not all bad. Bad is a judgement we make, not a definite, objective quality.

The 8 of Pentacles came forward this week to remind us that sometimes we need to look at all possible solutions or choices before we will know what is actually best for our situation. Even if that might mean bankruptcy, loss of job or homes, going back to school, or illness. These are life resets, not good or bad. What we do with those circumstances is what will make those choices good or bad for us, we can't know that until we have chosen and began to walk that path. We can faith, and the 8 of pents tells us this, in ourselves, our gut, the feelings behind the dreams we are building, to make the choice that feels good for our long term growth.

The Messenger Oracle card, "Nurture what you love" is a definite indication to follow what feels good. While no one could say they would love losing a home or having to move, there might be some definite upsides that you need to keep your focus on. Is there a better, more aligned location for you to live in? Is there a way to find cheaper rent, so you could save more? Of course, moving here is just one example. But keeping our eye on the prize, like say a more sustainable lifestyle, one that feels like freedom and security, could what you really need and will keep you from getting too down about the details surrounding the changes that don't feel the best. The phrase "look for the silver lining" is more than a cliche, it's how the Universe works when we are manifesting change. 

The better and stronger we can reflect the changes we want to see happen, from a soul level, the easier they will manifest in our lives. You can't fake it. You actually need to be able to generate that level of feeling where you are right now. This week could be very supportive of that level of manifestation and change. Spark, from the Enchanted Map deck, and Sarasvarti, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle deck, are all about inspiration, creativity, and expression. Use the arts to explore your feelings this week, re-work your vision board, create an amulet to help to focus on the feelings behind your dreams, write a little ritual for New Moon to help you release what stands in your way from being in the gorgeous energy you want for your life. Neptune is egging our sense of spirituality to go deeper, spirituality and creativity have a wonderful synergy together that could create great strides in what you are look to bring into your life.

What does this mean for the intuitive biz Goddess?

This week should be geared toward things like:

  • Researching programs or classes you would like to save for.
  • Making sure your systems actually support what you are trying to do and meet your ROI standards. Additional automation might be a real task for you this week.
  • Looking ahead, with new thoughts, to rest of the year and into next year.
  • Getting down to the nitty gritty of what you actually need to get clients and run your biz.

 

As we look toward what clients might need more focus on, you might find they need help around:

  • How to begin a life up-level and how to work dreams into a plan.
  • How to be more accountable and take bigger or more strategic action in their lives.
  • How to get back to spiritual and personal growth.
  • Choice discernment.

Introduction to shifting hard emotions: Emotional Mastery series

In the space of one year my life had almost completely fallen to pieces. I’m not even exaggerating. I spent months on end on the point of breaking. My family was no longer what I thought it was. Forced lifestyle changes killed the business I had had. Court hearings, lawyers, money flying out the door. Then we lost our primary source of income.  I spent months in deep resentment, anger, gnashing my teeth at the world and the various sources of of my angst. I thought I had lost everything, basically, and I didn’t know who I was anymore. Very little got better on it's own with time.

There is a point where I realized all my internal feelings didn’t mean squat. Feeling all those feels so deeply every single time they came up didn’t change anything, or if it did change something, it didn’t change for the better. Acting from that pain place never got me the results I wanted or expected. But I still didn’t know how to heal from it, how to let go, how to find comfort and peace within myself from all that had gone askew. All I really knew was that staying in that active grieving/anger stage was going to kill me and everything I loved right along with it.

 

I realized that if I had any chance of creating a life I really wanted to stand up for at some point in the future, then I had to start getting a grip. I knew there was no way to simply stop feeling. The more I was able to simply sit still my pain feelings, the more guidance I heard about that feeling. But now I had two conflicting voices in my head. One voice for all the world sounded like “realistic”, if not pessimistic.The other voice sounded like “hope”. I so wanted to resist hope, I didn’t want to set myself for more pain. But I did tell hope, “Maybe. Probably not today, or even this week. But there will be movement on this at some point.”

That "maybe: changed everything. The change wasn’t instant. It wasn’t all healing. But in retrospect, I see is that I was opening the door to deeper guidance. That sense of hope, it wasn’t just another opinion in my mind. It was Divine guidance, an intuitive hit, a precognition of how a potential could play out. I had resisted because I didn’t recognize it as Truth. I thought it was wishful thinking, based on my desire to have everything feel resolved and harmonious again. But it was long-term plan guidance, maybe not today. Things were heading in that direction, maybe not tomorrow, but I have to prepare myself to meet this potential.

 

I also resisted. I thought accepting the situation as it was, would mean that I accepted an outcome I didn't or wouldn't like. I now see perfectly how that was fear talking smack. That knowledge helps me to see how fear might be talking smack in my present. This isn’t about ignoring your feelings or burying them. It’s about being present with them and knowing that you still need to make choices. It’s about being able to say, “if my anger isn’t getting this situation better, what will? And what do I need in order move through this shit, cuz I want to be flowing, not stuck?”

myths about emotional mastery

Being sensitive doesn’t mean we are meant to suffer. Our emotions aren’t meant to weigh us down or rule our lives. They are sacred. They are guidance. But they aren’t the part of you that has to make the powerful, life-changing decisions you need to make in order to rise and grow.

 

It’s time to learn how to fierce and sensitive, true to your feelings, yet ready to create change.

 

As we continue in this series on Emotional mastery, we'll take a deeper look at how our deep feelings are actually the source of strength and personal magick in this life.

Weekly Guidance: June 5th, 2017: Personal power only exists in the present moment.

Personal power only exists in the present moment.

We are gearing up for another energy reset on Thursday, when the moon goes full and Jupiter goes direct. Over the weekend things will lighten up, but on the 16th Neptune is going to go retro and bring with karmic lessons.  We should be looking to use the next 9 days to create as much forward movement as we can. It's not that work will necessarily stop when Neptune turns, but whatever karmic fears and baggage we bring into that period could be intensified both during and then right after the retrograde. 

As the Summer warms up and we head toward that full moon on Thursday, Brigit reminds us to hold our ground. But as usual, the Universe wants us to try to do this without having to resort to anger and tantrums. This is more about holding our power and personal responsibility (Kind of Pents) in alignment with a deeper understanding of our awareness of circumstances (Wizard of Awareness). In order for to float kind of smoothly through the Neptune retro, we have have to get our shit in alignment these next 9 days. Feeding our internal insecurities and fears (know your fears) isn't going to help us the rest of the month if we don't hold our ground now. 

The key is in being proactive about things we would rather avoid or procrastinate on. This week we need use the good energies that are and will flowing to tie up loose ends, take care of details, and bust through some of the thing you've been putting off. It's a week to nine days of strategic action. Set your boundaries, don't sweat the small stuff, and say what you mean to say. If fears come up, plan around them, don't simply ignore them or let them take full control of your actions.

The biggest point behind personal development and evolution is not to never have bad days again, but rather to come a point of integration with our fears and our ability to plan and move forward. It's the integration of the primal mind with the rational mind. Our fears are every bit as sacred as our logic and rationale, but when we use our fear to inform our process, proactively, we begin to transcend and transmute our old lives.  We've got nine days to bust up some of the patterns and fears we have still been holding onto. The energy of this will week will bring our personal empowerment home to live within us. 

Any flights of fancy or escapism during these nine days could be an influence of Neptune as it's preparing to turn, so always come back to the question "What can I do about that right now?" to help ground you into the present moment.

What does this mean for your biz?

This week should be geared toward things like:

  • Batching out your content, emails, blog posts, social media posts, etc...
  • Settling any unresolved issues, taxes, missed payments, any sort of conflict or unknown status.
  • Trouble shooting.
  • Listening to soul for any guidance on your biz alignment. With this being a micro-full moon the internal voice could still feel amplified, like it has through the super new moons. 

 

As we look toward what clients might need more focus on, you might find they need help around:

  • A gentle push to face their problems head on.
  • Figuring out how to stand in their power in the face of family or work family pressures.
  • How to stay moving and proactive when things get rocky and stormy.
