An important message from Jan Finley

Came across this picture on FB today.  The imagery is very powerful for me and evokes The Secret Garden, one of my most favorites books and musicals.  The image of the door and a key has a huge place of honor in my awakening, so much so that I wore a gold key for years before it was fashionable.  I eventually gave the key to my daughter who performed in a lead role in the ballet of The Secret Garden, based on the Broadway show.  A few years later, she tragically lost it, along with the rest of her jewelry, in a robbery.  

I was devastated at the key's loss but have come to see that the physical embodiment of the symbol had to be lost so that I would remember that that key was always within me, as was the door.  Many, many times in my life, I had faced a locked door and had to choose to unlock it.  As I stood before these doors, I have run the gamut of response from "I can't" to "I won't" to "I don't deserve this".   

Sometimes I have been afraid to unlock the door.  Sometimes I have unlocked the door and been unable (unwilling?) to enter.  Sometimes I have embraced the opening.  What I have discovered is that the Garden is always waiting.  It is always willing. It is always home.  The love, the Light, the welcome I have discovered inside the garden always awaits me, and yet each time I come to the door, it is a new permutation. I must face the door as if for the first time all over again.

In the midst of the absolute chaos and shadow running rampant in our physical world, I came to the door again today.  As I said, it appeared on Facebook, that mirror disguised as "social media", the implication being that it involves "others".  I spent the afternoon with a dear friend having lunch and watching "Moana", a wonderful Disney movie that repeatedly asks the question "Who are you?"  

We had repeated interruptions as the dogs barked and asked to go out, the phones rang, and people came to the door.  Still and agin, we returned to the movie.  What I began to notice is that the interruptions came when Spirit revealed itself within the story.  I was being asked to pay attention, which was not easy as I was hostess and pet owner, dealing with my own little bit of chaos.

It wasn't until after my friend left that I was able to really process what occurred and I began to see the part my doors played in this afternoon.  I welcomed friends inside, I let my dogs out to use the bathroom, I welcomed them back into the house.  It was an entirely different perspective from standing outside the door trying to to decide whether or not to open the door.

I came to see that I was already inside; that standing outside was no longer an option for me, and I began to apply that to the huge transmutation happening in our world.  The key has been used, the door is open, and we are inside.  The Garden is ours.  The new world is here.

This does not mean that all work ends here. On the contrary this is where the real work begins.  Clean up must begin. Any gardener knows that much work goes into preparing the Garden and restoring its Light. The job is often daunting and feels overwhelming, but it is critically necessary.  

And now I return to the question "Who am I?"  I am a Guardian of the Garden, in my own little corner of the world.  And I am also a Guardian in tandem and connection with all of you as we welcome the New/Old World into physical existence.

This is where we are.  We have arrived in the Garden but we must clear out the deadwood, weeds and brush. We must fertilize and nurture the tender growth. We must trust that our hard work and faith will bear abundant fruit.  Our Garden requires our absolute commitment and vigilance.  

It is hard to keep faith and hold the Light when each day brings dark news and our very world feels threatened.  And yet, this is the time we must hold most strongly to all that we know is true.  

We are not outside the door any longer.  The new world is here and it is our responsibility to clear away any Shadow and debris from the past that holds us back.  We are the Guardians. We are the Garden.  Let the blooming begin.

These times are beyond words, a truly suspenseful movie. Some day there will be an actual movie about these times. With everything going on, I saw that Saturn formed a Wisdom intersection with the nodes yesterday. You can see that we are shaking loose all our unconscious (and conscious) ideas about women and power all over the world, reaching all the way back to our past and all the way to the future and calibrating it with unity consciousness from Sun/Haumea. And Mars, representing the new Divine Feminine, manifests with the Soul Star Chakra, bringing this recalibration of inner authority into our very bodies, with the Earth Star as a resource. We can't heal unless we bring these ancient issues to light, and that's happening in a huge way right now. Juno connecting with Uranus/Eris gives us the fork in the road, the choice once again to choose Love over fear. Because we are in labor now, and don't know the outcome (even though at some level it's already happened), it is a very scary and intense time, and our choices must be made consciously and deliberately, with diligence, love, compassion for all, surrender and non-attachment.



A couple of days ago I tried to put into words what I perceive regarding "the ongoing adaptation of the Truth of Mars" and the "passing of the baton" between Mercury and Mars.
So here's how I experience it:

SHE steps out of the water and she reclaims the land. It's the movement that demonstrates that conscious awareness of the Divine Feminine Energy expands and returns to the physical realm and it fully awakens within the body now. It's been there all along but we didn't had the conscious awareness in order to perceive that presence in our physical cells. Our senses were trained and focused in a way that wouldn't allow for that kind of perception, it's been humanity's blind spot so to speak (similar to seeing all the objects in a room without sensing and realizing the space that fills the room). But we cleared the waters and dissolved the denseness that prevented us from FEELING the direct connectedness with source in every moment through our physical bodies so that it would influence our perception of reality. Instead we didn't SEE it and none of our DOING was sourced from BEING consciously connected with the ALL.
Our perception came from an imbalanced state of mind, the essence of the feminine energy has not been understood, it had no weight or power because it wasn't perceived nor experienced by the eyes of men. It's a body intelligence we didn't consciously work with because we didn't know it was there. We LOOKED for solutions in the outside world because we thought that's all there is. The Balance returns now as the body regains conscious awareness of itself holding the substance of Love within every cell. Every particle and molecule that makes up the physical realm is filled with this substance and we regain our ability to perceive it and make it count. Separation consciousness dissolves. Our body and the earth body are ONE and we can finally let this Truth reshape our world. Imagine the fundamental change in how we perceive and communicate, express and experience in the world when we embody the consciousness of Love that comes from a balanced mind.
We might have THOUGHT the flower is shriveled and lacking water but this was just the reflection of our inability to fully value and understand the potential of water and the divine feminine. As soon as we remember the power of the feminine energy what we will perceive 'out there' will be very different as it will be based on the realization of our wholeness.
If we can see the wholeness in ourselves and All things we're no longer wired to the idea of 'needing to fix things' nor do we have to operate in such a realm.
The true revaluation takes place within us and the change in perception that comes with it. As conscious holders and embodiers of m-f balance we determine the new paradigm as no thought or action that is still based in the old realm of lack/fear will be able to withstand the realized truth and coherence of Love in form. We are free to remember and manifest the Truth of physicality (Eden template) into being.

While the Sun shines Light on the natural and cosmic Laws underpinning the Universe, Haumea, feminine energy of unity consciousness and wholeness, connects with Ixion (resource), Chiron (Great Eliminator) and Vesta (stepping stone). That’s a lot of connection! We bring devotion and purity to our quest for wholeness and mastery of the lower body system through consciously and consistently choosing the high road, the highest perspective. We are here to do this. Uranus/Eris continues to sweep the dark corners of our consciousness, bringing up the dross for illumination and cleansing. Every time we can remember to get back to our hearts we are healing the world and our Selves. Today’s mantra: I AM Whole.
