Endings and beginnings....

My daughter mentioned to me the other day that God must have
deliberately designed endings, like going to sleep at night, so that
everyone could have an opportunity to start fresh in the morning. We are
given that opportunity, she said, to step back from circumstances and
regroup, so to speak. A reset button.
Never has that seemed more necessary than right now as we hover on the
brink of phenomenal change. We all need that deep in-breath, that
moment to affirm our vision and our truth before we step forward. And
once we do step forward, that perceived change will take on a life of its
own and become an unstoppable powerhouse.
In this very charged atmosphere of change, the sideways elevator hit my
daughter yesterday in its inexplicable and out of the blue way. She has
lived in a rental home for several years now with her two children. It is a
darling house, full of light and love; so much so that we all call it The
Sunshine House. She and the kids have been very happy there.
Her landlord called last night and notified her that in four months time, her
rent will be going up. Enough that it means that they will have to either buy
the house or move. My daughter is a well known and respected director in
a non-profit and we all know how financially strapped non-profits are,
which of course then trickles down to employee incomes. There is no
extra money for my daughter to make big changes.
For me, living in the CC world, this is a huge opportunity to say YES!! For
me, much easier to embrace than my daughter, who has to focus on keep
a safe roof over her children’s heads. Having been a single parent, I
remember how terrifying it can be, but now I see nothing but possibility.
For her, in this moment, there is nothing but fear.
She is facing a huge ending, whatever the outcome might be, and a huge
beginning. For her, it feels as if there is no moment of defined pausing, of
deep in-breath, of reset. She feels pushed off a cliff.
And yet....is this not the moment we all receive the gift of Unity? Is this not
the most profound time to pause however briefly and truly recognize that
endings and beginnings are the same entity?
If we are to live in Unity, as we must, embracing the Wholeness of every
situation is essential. There can be no more one OR the other. We are now
in a land of Both/And and to move forward means embracing Unity in its
entirety.
One portion of our Congress is not embracing Unity and it can be seen on
their faces. They all look angry. They are even appear all the same age
range and color. Weirdly, they all look alike.
The other portion of Congress perfectly represents Unity. Different colors,
races, religions and genders. And more importantly, differing view points.
They are angry too but their anger is focused on positive change and
inclusion, rather than resisting change as the others do,
My point in mentioning this is not to preach on politics but to point out a
visual image of what polarity and unity look like. Only in Unity can we
survive. The days of duality and polarity are gone, done, dead. As they
say in Star Trek, resistance is futile. Beginnings and endings are not
separate and can no longer be seen as so.
My daughter came into this world with an extra dose of wisdom. She will
figure this out. She will find the moment to breathe and she will embrace
the future, because that is what she does. She will embrace the Unity and
move into her new life with the grace that always accompanies her along
her path. We must do the same.
And so, stepping forward, from here on in, we must recognize that there is
only Unity and that our job is to embrace it in every opportunity. We carry
the Light. We are the Way Showers.
And here is a little nugget from those who guide me: In Unity, resides
magic. It is the place in which miracles are born.

For the week of December 31, 2018
In this Season of Light and beginning of a New Year, it is important to
remember that the Light is not external, something we look for “out there”.
We are the Light, each and everyone of us, and it is our light to which we
must each attend. We have traveled through darkness and uncertainty for
long enough to have become somewhat comfortable with it. We have
faced our fears and we know that we aren’t done yet. There is so much
more coming, but we all know that we can do this and that we are not
alone on this journey.
We embrace these opportunities so that we may illuminate our own inner
darkness to bring those long hidden and rejected shadows into the light.
As our light shines, it illuminates the Way not only for our own selves but
for others as well. There is no greater adventure than seeking our precious
inner Light and coming to the realization that all lights are connected. In
doing so, we recognize and acknowledge our own divinity. We step fully in
to our role as Co-Creators.
As Molly Friendenfeld says, “Your heart is where your inner light resides. It
is part of every sacred journey to reconnect with your inner light, step into
your divinity, spread the light of love before you, return to the essence of
love, and inspire others to do the same.”
I wish you all great joy, peace and love this Season of Light and in the
coming anew Year. May Light fill your hearts and lives with radiance.
“Perhaps there is no greater time to awaken to the adventure the souls
would have us live and become agents of the divine in this world.”
Michael Meade

For the week of December 24, 2018
There is a fury to the Black Moon’s dancing now, an element we have not
observed before. Her playfulness has all but disappeared. Was she
pretending all this time to be playful? Was it all a misdirection so that she
could slip all but unnoticed - at first - into our world and turn everything
on its head?
Watch now as the purpose and the focus of her dance become laser
sharp. She knows exactly what she is doing and she will not hesitate or
stop until her divine task is complete. Don’t shut your eyes because this
dance is one you will won’t want to miss. Prepare for the show of a
lifetime.
We have gone searching for our own angry young man (and woman)
within, that part of us that rebels, lashes out impulsively and speaks words
of hate to strangers. She is here to make sure we find all those
dismembered shadow aspects of ourselves. She is here to make sure that
all masks are removed and that we don’t go to sleep again. She is here to
make certain that all that is hidden is brought into the light. She is here to
wake us up and make us get real. She is here to bring us home to
ourselves.
Here and now we rise again, renewed and reborn. We are stripped bare
and can only face the new world heart first and arms open wide.

WORM HOLE

Here we are in a wormhole again, and one that snuck up on us. That aspect seems perfect to me because I can’t help but think that this passage  is intimately tied to the “angry young man” issue that came up last week, especially after reading Ellias Lonsdale’s offering on 12/14.  The angry young man is a soul remnant we have left behind and frankly, have been happy to disown.  Now, here we are in a wormhole, and  we are having to face the consequences of that choice AND reclaim that rejected part of ourselves. No one enjoys having an angry and unreasonable person around, especially internally. And yet, here we are...  It is time to dive deep again, with our hearts wide open, willing to embrace the unlovable and bring him home.  

Remember that Saturn usurped Uranus’ role as Divine Father and has not exactly exhibited divine behavior.  Instead, the Ascendancy of the Patriarchy was launched and dismemberment of the Feminine was the result.  Saturn, as youngest son, had a strong sense of entitlement along with a deep and abiding feeling of being overlooked. Uranus has now reclaimed his place as Divine Father and the Feminine is united again.  One can only imagine how that would affect the “reality” Saturn created in his mind. One can only imagine how angry he would be to relinquish all he claimed....

This is the time to dive deeply once again, into those dark and angry parts of ourselves - those parts that we have no desire whatsoever to face, never mind bring into the Light.  Diving deeply is not anything we haven’t done before and we have gotten quite good at it.  But here is an added blessing this time.  The Divine Father is assuredly back in his place, with the Divine Mother by his side.  These Guardians will side beside us and with us and make certain that the errant Son is brought home and his anger transmuted to Light. As always, it will be harder in unexpected ways, and easier than we ever imagined.  Just remember to breathe and keep your heart open, and that we are all in this together.  Now let’s go get him and bring him home.
