Uncharted Territory: Exploring a New Way to Be

We awaken on the other side of the Full Moon into Uncharted Territory, having left the old way behind, and having not yet found our footing for the new way to unfold. We are mere inhabitants on a planet that journeys around the Sun, with its neighbors, day after day, carrying us all along with Her.

Taking a step back to contemplate the meaning of our lives, we begin to see the Big Picture, to recognize ourselves as a mere part of Creation, a speck in the Universe, dependent upon every living thing for our existence.

We open our minds to the journey that we have undertaken to be here, now, and realize that it is we, ourselves, who have held us back from becoming all that we came here to be.

We awaken and look around at the others who have joined us on this journey, seeing them clearly as the soul beings that they are, for perhaps the first time. We see their hurt and pain, just as we see our own, and know it to be that which has separated us for so very long, and the way that will help us to finally connect to each other, through the shared pains and struggles of our experience.

We rise from the Earth, lifting our sights higher this time around, feeling the world that surrounds us, knowing Her intimately, feeling Her pain, as She struggles with us through this metamorphosis process that we are in the midst of.

We know that we can no longer agree to anything that harms our being, our physical body, or our spirit, nor will we agree to anything that harms any being that we now know to be an extension of ourselves. We have seen the Light! We have embraced it and pulled it into the very fabric of our reality, into every molecule in our bodies, and we are ready to radiate it outwards and become the Light Beings that we truly are.

But wait! What's that holding us back? Did we forget to let go of something? Let's stop a minute, and peer backwards into who we used to be, and see if there are any loose ends that we forgot to tie up, to release, to put paid to in our pasts. Then we realize that maybe, just maybe, it's our collective essence that has been filled with worry, stress, anxiety, fear, rage, anger, hurt, and pain, and we realize that we, as individuals, cannot yet let go of it, for we need the help of every being on the planet, to do so.

Now that we have found our connection to every living being on this Earth, we can reach out to them, and through them, to help us all to shed that which has always held us back - our fear of love, our fear of our own worthiness, our fear of abundance and of beauty and of knowing our true natures. Our true nature is to feel, for in feeling, we embrace our abilities, the ones that we all were born with but had hidden from us, by the Powers that Were, by manipulation and control, by fear that was trained into us, so that we could never be all that we truly are and embrace our true nature, that of a wise spirit inhabiting a physical body, in a world filled with richness and to know our connection to it all.

We have to feel to heal. We have to feel our emotions to strengthen our psychic abilities and to use them to their fullest. We have to feel to know love, and to know that we are loved. We have to feel to connect to others, and to All of Life. We have to learn to feel, before we can go any further, and it is this realization that drives us now, as we begin reaching out to others whom we intuit are beginning to wake up to feeling once more.

We find our tribe, our soul family, through feeling their emotions. We find the Divine Guidance that has been implanted in every cell of our bodies, by learning to feel it all. We find the love that we have been wanting for our entire lives, by feeling our own hearts, and learning to love ourselves again. We find our abilities waking up because we are feeling once more. We find our connection to All of Life through feeling it though the soles of our feet, and learn to connect to the planet that we live upon and all of life upon Her, by knowing that this connection has always existed, and pulling the healing energy that She provides, up into our bodies, and allowing it to awaken our spirits.

We feel because we exist, and we now know ourselves to be a part of the energies that have always existed, and we know that we can tap into them at any time, to help us to move forward, both individually and collectively. We have found the Doorway into Uncharted Territory, a place we may remember from past lives, but have been asleep to for all of our lives here on this Earth.

We find a magnificent garden of Eden awaiting us, filled with color and energy and love beyond measure, and we want to take off our shoes and wander it's many paths. We look back and realize that this Doorway leads back to the old way, and that if we do not fully close it, these old habits and issues will follow us through and destroy this beautiful garden as they have in the past, in all of our pasts. We look longingly at the garden, and silently move back through the Doorway, knowing that it awaits us when we have finished our work on this side of the Veil.

We have been gifted with knowledge, in just the little time that we spent on the other side of that Doorway, and we come back through it determined to do the work that is necessary, on both an individual and collective level, so that we may all move into that vast garden of wonder, and know the life of bliss that has always awaited us.

What is this work that we speak of? We call upon our Guides and other Spirit Helpers to help us to understand what must be done so that we may lift ourselves up out of this collective pool of mud and muck that we've been mired in for so very long. What can we do, we ask. Where do we start?

Our Guidance Council replies that it is time for us to do the work for which we chose this lifetime, and that in doing this work, we cannot follow anyone else, we must do it on our own. We cannot allow others to tell us what to do or what not to do, we must follow our own hearts. They tell us to listen to our intuition in all that we do, for it will show us the way. And they tell us to not be afraid any more, for when we are doing what we are meant to do, we are protected in all ways, and that we may call on them at any time, to strengthen this protection field that they hold around us. In fact, we can call on them anytime, for any reason, for reassurance, to feel the love of the Universe that always surrounds us, to help to strengthen our resolve, to guide us towards whatever we need to do the work that we came here to do, the "tools of the trade" or the knowledge that we seek. They are always there, and they are always waiting for us to ask them for their assistance.

We are also told that the Universe has provided us with all of the tools that we need to do our work here, and that these tools are all around us, if we look through the eyes of love and see the energy that surrounds us, then we will understand what they are, and they will teach us how to use them, if we but ask.

There is no need to fear, they reassure us, for this work is Divinely inspired - by your own Divine Nature, the part of you that exists in that beautiful garden already, and She will help you at any time, as well. Call upon your Higher Self, they advise you, She knows the steps that you need to take to get to where you are going, and She will guide you there, to the garden, to reunite and become one with her once more.

Everything in the Universe is conspiring to help you all at this time, our Spiritual Guidance Council tells us. All you have to do is ask, and then use your emotions to feel the answers as they arrive. Look around sometimes, you may see our Messengers, the birds, the insects, the animals, plants, and trees of this world, talking to you, bringing you an important message, a lesson, or just saying hello and letting you know that they, too, are there to support you.

Everything on your planet is alive, they tell us, and everything is your teacher, and they are all waiting to assist you in the work that you do.

Connect with those around you, be they human or animal or plant or tree, and begin building your own Web of Connection to others, expanding it outwards over time, as you connect to more and more of life. Open your heart and let others inside, feel them, feel their emotions, their hurt, their pain, and allow them to feel yours. This will widen your circle, and strengthen your Web. Use your abilities to seek out those who need your help, or those who can help you, and add them to your Web, through your emotional connection to them. Connect to everything with your heart, with your emotions. That is why you have them - to help you to become more awakened and aware and connected.

Your heart is the Key to it all, and the garden that you seek, lies within it, where you can visit it anytime.

It is then that you realize that the Uncharted Territory that you've entered, is the Realm of your own emotions, and part of the work that you are here to do, is to explore them.

Your Spiritual Guidance Council departs, leaving you with a lingering feeling of love and strength from their presence. You look around. You feel what is closest to you, and reaching out with your heart, you begin your work...

June Angel Energies Report


June is the sixth month, and 2017 adds up to 1. Adding these together, we get a 7, making June a #7 month, and all 7 days will be prevalent this month. 7's are about Spirituality, Psychic Abilities, Listening to your Guidance, and having Faith - which is what we need to have in order to take Action to make things Manifest in this world! June is the time to put things in motion so that they can grow through the Summer season of growth.

In terms of the Wheel of the Year, Spring is New Beginnings, Birth, and Rebirth. Summer is when things are growing towards the harvest at Autumn Equinox. The seeds that you planted in the Spring, both literally and figuratively, have sprouted. Now is the time to "fertilize" them, feed them, water them, and put effort into helping them to grow. What are you working towards? What are your dreams? Feed them, and help them to grow!

Action is the Keyword for the Month of June, for proper growth requires Action on our part. Take action towards your dreams this month.

Please see the ASTRO/NUMERO column on the left side of this blog, for the important dates for the month of June.

Back in January, I flipped through the calendar for this year, and made a few notes. For June, I wrote: Rain this month (or Emotions). It is traditionally Monsoon Month here in the Southwest, so we do get rain this month! However, I don't think that is what I was referring to. Yet, look at what is happening in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, too much rain is falling, while South Africa suffers the worst drought in history. Temps in India have hit record highs, and their monsoon will not happen until August or so. And, it's Hurricane season. Physical rain may well be a theme this month. We are still working on our Water Energy, and learning to respect the Waters of this world and hold them as Sacred. Water is Life! We cannot live without it.

Water is the Element of the Direction of West, which is the feminine Direction. It represents the season of Autumn, and brings us the gifts and teachings of our Emotions and Psychic Abilities. Needing to restore the balance of the Divine Feminine here on Earth, has led to the Water issues we are facing today. These are also affected by our relationship with our Emotions, which could also be called our Emotional Waters. Not expressing our Emotions, has them blocked. Pollution of the Waters of the Earth might be considered a blockage. Not respecting the feminine, might be considered a blockage. It's all connected, in other words. Until we make peace with our own Emotions, and the feminine side within us all, we will continue to have problems manifested as Water issues in our world.

Into every life, a little rain must fall... We have to express our emotions, even if it means crying. It's okay to cry, to grieve, to get angry, to feel frustrated, and to express all of these emotions, and more. Trapping emotions within only damages our health, just as it is damaging the health of the Waters of the Earth.

Emotional Release then, is the Theme for this month, as many are waking up and healing, releasing the old, the old paradigm and old emotions that has kept them trapped in their own pasts. We are realizing that we don't have to live this way, trapped in solitary by our emotions, and can begin letting them out, letting them go, and moving on.

Communication (Mercury, ruler of Gemini) + Love (Venus) + Expansion (Jupiter):
Venus is currently in Taurus, just about to conjunct Uranus (sudden and unexpected change), and then will move into Gemini, where the Sun is already located (through Solstice). Jupiter comes out of Retrograde on the Full Moon on the 9th of June, in Libra, the sign of balance and justice. Mercury is already in his home sign of Gemini. We might even see Gemini, not as the traditional soul mate, but as the two halves of oneself, the masculine and the feminine, becoming One, balanced within.

A positive use of this expansion of emotional release energy is to openly express our feelings, finding that ultimate balance - masculine/feminine, Yin/Yang, mind/heart, by Mindfully Expressing what is in our Hearts, what WE want, and what we want to do, with or in our lives. No need to live stifled, express it all! Creatively as well as in communication, and do a release ceremony and release the old, pent up emotions, cutting the cord with the past. After the Full Moon on the 9th, be ready to RELEASE it all! Then on the New Moon on the 23rd, growth is possible!


Another subject that is coming up at this time, are the ways in which we subjugate ourselves to others.

When we've been abused, victimized, or made to feel less "important" than others, in any way, we have to retrain ourselves to be worthy of all that life offers us. Sometimes, it's the little things that we do that have to be trained out of us - taking the smallest cut of meat on the dinner table, for instance. All women have been "trained" to do that! Yet they have put their time and Energy into preparing it all with love... Other times, we surrender to another's demands or priorities or needs, in other ways.

We have to relearn that our needs are important, that we deserve a rich and full life too, and stop bowing down to others so that we can pursue our own dreams. Because we deserve it! We deserve to be happy, fulfilled, and to do what we need to do for ourselves - to take time for ourselves, nurture ourselves, pamper ourselves, and give ourselves what we need on a daily basis, so that we learn - and demonstrate to others - our respect for ourselves.

Sometimes, in order to do this, we may have to let others go, or go about their own lives doing what they need to do for themselves, and no longer ALLOW them to impose their Will upon us. Stepping away when they try to do this, and instead doing what we need to do for ourselves, anyway. Walk away from their demands and control issues. We can no longer subjugate ourselves to them or to those old ways of control and domination. That is the old way, the 3D world that we are leaving behind.

We are forging a new way, every day, with our decisions, and by standing up for ourselves and our worth! Equality and balance are the new way, the 5D world that we are embracing.


TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH: The Tower!

The Tower is the Major Arcana card #16, with 6 being June's number, and 1 being 2017's number, adding up, of course, to #7, the number of Neptune, the ruler of the Seas (there's that Water energy popping up again, along with our Emotions!). Number 7 can mean earth shaking psychic and spiritual insights, meant to shake you up, create change, and move you forward!

Channeled Message for the month of June

"Have faith (#7) in the process, of both the Micro and the Macro (individual and collective processes). Trust that we are being guided in the right direction.

Everything is becoming discombobulated. It has to fall apart before it can be rebuilt. The TOWER card again - don't rebuild using the same bricks (principles, practices, beliefs, morals, values, etc).

It can be frightening to have the rug pulled from beneath your feet, and this is where you really have to have Faith. As the old (paradigm) goes away, or (system) shatters, the Void beckons so that we can look within and see what we want to build. Rely on your dreams, your insights, your intuitive process, these will never fail you. Your heart knows what it needs. Learn to listen to it and do what it asks you to do, guides you to do.

Believe in yourself!
Trust Yourself!
Trust your Intuition, your knowledge, your guidance, and your Heart.
They know the way to the future that you seek.
Learn to Trust!
"



DOORS OF PERCEPTION

We're also being asked to look at people in our pasts, and our impression of them that we've held onto. Now we are asked to go back and SEE CLEARLY where WE were at in our own lives at that time, and how we may have misjudged them. Every thing that we encounter is filtered through our own reality - issues, personality, beliefs, etc., causing a distorted perception. Here in the present, we have learned more, grown, evolved, and cleared out our own old issues and beliefs, that may have previously prevented us from not SEEING CLEARLY the lessons that these individuals were actually bringing to our lives. Looking at these situations again now, from the present, will facilitate growth, and help us to forgive and release them, so that WE can move forward. After all, we attract what WE are, our own vibrational level, and so it is that we attracted these individuals to us for their lessons.


The Star is what we are striving towards this month. Having faith is required. It is the time to put out your Intentions for the growth that is needed, and to take action to make your dreams come true. Collectively, this is what we are working towards together, and I believe we will "see the light" by Solstice (the 21st), and we can begin manifesting it by the New Moon (the 23rd), when the Season of Growth will be upon us. That is where we are going, yet we are cautioned to remember that by growing together, we are stronger. Look at the symbology of the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash, who are planted together to assist each other. We've all been planted here together for a reason. We are, first and foremost, a community, and what is a community? A group of people who come together in harmony, to create change for all. The Star lights the way...

May you have an abundant month of growth,
and may we all heal our emotional waters together.
Feed your seeds well.
With love from the Universe,
Michelle

The Healing Conversation: Seeing the BIG Picture


It's collectively time to see the BIG PICTURE, in regards to our health. I know that I talk a lot about Spiritual Healing, yet, recently, it's been brought to my attention again, as a need to share how we can all use Spiritual Healing to heal our own lives. Spiritual Healing is the healing of the mind, body, and heart (emotions), to create overall spiritual health. It also states that each of these affects the other. For instance, emotional and/or mental issues that we hold on to, manifest as physical symptoms. Grief manifests as lung/respiratory problems, emotions held in manifest as heart problems, even heart attacks. Stress, anxiety, and worry affect the digestive system. Another one that I come across a lot, is neck and shoulder pain, and it results from carrying too much weight on one's shoulders, or trying to do too much on your own, without asking for help. Women are notorious for this, in my experience.

I began this Healing Conversation over on the Touch the Earth Page on Facebook yesterday, with this post:



"It's time to start The Healing Conversation.
While losing healthcare is going to be devastating for millions, it also gives us a chance to reconsider how we are treating our bodies. I post a lot about herbs and their properties here, for this very reason. Many times, an herbal remedy will help to solve the problem, without having to resort to dangerous chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Now, that's not to say that some conditions won't require pharms, such as diabetics will still need insulin, but for many things, we can look to nature for help. Willow bark tea instead of aspirin, ginger instead of anti-inflammatories, etc.
Health begins however, with the food that we eat. All the super-sizing of portions, for instance, has led us to mistreat our bodies in a serious way. Monitoring what we put into our bodies, can help to naturally cure some problems. Taking herbs in the most natural form possible, will help to make sure that you get the nutrients that your body needs, and help to detox the past abuses of your body.
Ask your body what it needs, and do that! Look at stress factors in your life. Ask yourself if you are stress-eating. Are you taking in too many carbs, fats, meats, or sugars? Health starts with your diet. And when we turn to food instead of dealing with our personal issues, it causes even more health problems.
I wanted to start this Healing Conversation today because it is the New Moon, and we need to start thinking about our health in a New way. Sit with this, and begin thinking about how you can better nurture yourself and your body. We'll talk more about this subject in tomorrow's blog post. This Conversation will continue.
"

The Healing Conversation continues on the FB page, as I share more information there about foods and physical health. Please stop by and join in the conversation!
The Touch the Earth Page on Facebook

This is also about our overall health, healing ourselves mentally, emotionally AND physically! We are living in a world of unbalanced, unhealthy individuals that are largely unaware of their unhealthiness, or unwilling to do the work to heal it all. And yes, it can be a long, painful process, but the alternative is to live with pain, sadness, depression, digestive issues, heart attacks, grief, sorrow, hate, anger, fury, inflammation.... I could go on and on! The question is, what are we going to do about it, what are we willing to do about it? And do we SEE CLEARLY yet, how serious a problem it is in our world?


This past Saturday, which was a Master #44 day, I had this insight, this deep insight that just poured out of me onto the paper, about healing what ails us. I'm going to share some of it here with you, to hopefully help you to better understand where I'm coming from with all of this - and where it's taking me. I apologize if any of it sounds angry. It isn't. I'm passionate about the things that inspire me, and that may come across strongly here, or even bluntly, at times. It is a time of major transformation in our world, and this is where it all starts.


When we are emotionally traumatized at a young age, we become stuck at that emotional age, and will react emotionally from that age into the future, any time we are again emotional traumatized (or sexually, physically, emotionally, or mentally abused). Until we heal the original emotional trauma, we remain that emotional age.

NOTE: All trauma that comes afterwards, triggers that original emotional trauma, in some way, deepening it, or even taking it in new directions.

Bullying someone who is an emotional child, is akin to bullying a child, or one who has a mental, emotional, or physical handicap.

Bullying is a defense mechanism used especially by children, who have themselves been bullied (or abused in some manner). When a child does it, corrective measures are taken and we recognize the need for healing. When an adult does it, we are reverting back to our own childhood behavior, or defense mechanism, which again shows a need for healing. Bullying a child is NEVER the right response to their bullying, nor is bullying someone who is emotionally a child. It makes them feel even more inferior, which causes more bullying - because that's the only response they know, due to the fact that they need healing.

Healing then, is what we need to recognize the need for, in our society. This lesson could not be any more obvious than with the POTUS and his behavior. He is showing us all his need for deep healing, and we, in turn, are bullying him, collectively revealing our own need for healing.

NOTE: This message is also about The Mirror and it's teachings - He is the mirror being held up to us to help us look more deeply at ourselves, and our own need for healing.

It may seem as if we are "poking fun" at an adult who (we believe) is capable of defending themselves and their actions, but this is just not true.

We can tell this by his reactions, especially on social media. He strikes back - bullying tactics. He wants to be recognized for his (supposed) accomplishments continuously - ego needs feeding. In other words, insecurities abound, showing us that he is still emotionally a child, more than likely due to an emotionally traumatizing event in his childhood.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please understand, it goes against everything I believe in to have to do ANYTHING that in any way, "defends" his behavior. I'm not defending it, I am emphasizing the need for healing. And I am discussing this because this need for healing is destroying us as a country, and as a people.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even those who murder, rape, rob, and assault, are demonstrating their need for healing, but we just aren't getting it. We don't want to be RESPONSIBLE for them (maybe we don't have the Ability or capacity to Respond), so we send them to prison - which, 1) doesn't help to heal them, and 2) propagates the need for more law enforcement and prisons - and all their related needs and expenses ($$), into the future. i.e. guards, prisons, officers, guns, cars, command centers, tactical response teams, clerical work, 911 operators, communication devices, structured hierarchy of these departments, uniforms, prison clothing, the list goes on and on, basically equating to JOBS being propagated into the future.

NOTE: This has become a common theme in our society. Look at the pharmaceutical industry. They don't create cures, they create customers for life, that is their goal, for it ensures that company's future. The Prison Industrial Complex is the same thing, only it also includes all of law enforcement and all of its needs, and sets us up to need people to make the laws, in our cities, counties, states, and nation - and to enforce them, and whatever that requires, and this can even be globally. It is a growing industry, and it is self-propagating, just as the pharmaceutical industry may be, by causing even more medical issues than it cures. The Theme then is Capitalism, or that which grows exponentially as a result of its practices.

This all comes about because we send people to prison instead of accepting responsibility for healing them, and this is what we do collectively, as a society. We shirk responsibility because we, ourselves, need healing, or to be taught how best to respond or communicate with individuals who are in pain within themselves.

We are our brother's keeper, in all ways.

Parents that don't accept responsibility for their children, also need healing. We need healthy adults to raise healthy children.
We need healing centers instead of prisons.
We need healers instead of guards.
We need true equality so that we don't continue creating the need to rob, steal, etc.
We need healing. All of us.
And we need to SEE this CLEARLY, and understand it deeply.

We have created an endless cycle, circle, designed to keep us working and buying in order to support the economy, i.e. the country and it's ambitions, propagating it into the future.

STOP THE CYCLE!

What is the answer? Stop the cycle. Realize what is really important. It's you and the life you want, expressing your truest self. But we all have to get there together, and this is going to cause the need for mass changes in consciousness, require healing, changes to the system, maybe even going back to the old ways of growing ones own food, bartering, helping each other out, creating community, and community involvement. Not everyone has to work at a job they hate, if they are willing to provide for their own needs, either through growing food, herbs, or with a tradeable skill or product.

The process has to start with healing, and recognizing the need for the healing of us all. Recognizing that the system is not working and healing our own needs for superiority, materialism, money, and SEPARATENESS. It's an inter-connected system: people, plants, trees, animals, we all thrive or we all die. We are connected to each other and are here to help each other. And we aren't doing that. We all exist in our own little bubble, rarely venturing out of it, rarely thinking outside the box, rarely seeing the BIG PICTURE, and not appreciating what others do for us, especially those who grow our food, nor giving thanks to the food itself, the plants and animals who keep us alive, and provide for the basic nurturing of our bodies. Basic survival requires shelter + food + water. We have to get back to the basics, and that begins with reconnecting to the Earth.


The Earth represents our Root Chakra, which is about safety and security. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid shows it as our basic physiological needs of breathing (having clean air to breathe and having the respiratory health to take in enough air to sustain us), food, water, sex, sleep, etc. AND our Safety needs that provide for the security of our bodies, employment (money or goods to sustain our life's basic needs), having the resources that we need, health, family, and property - the safety of all of these is essential. When we fear losing any of them, we revert back to a primal stage, and are unable to reach out or move upwards on the pyramid, towards friendships, being social, having self esteem and confidence, respecting ourselves and others, and then on to our higher needs of spirituality, morality, and acceptance of ourselves and others.

In Chakra terms, our energy can flow freely upwards from the Root Chakra when we feel safe in our bodies and in our lives, to open and balance the Sacral, bringing us passion, creativity, and the ability to express our sexuality in a healthy manner. When this is open and balanced, we move on to the Solar Plexus Chakra, the Sun Center that helps us to gain self esteem, self respect, and confidence. Next is the Heart Chakra, helping us to love and forgive ourselves first, then we can learn to love and forgive others.

Why am I going into this? Because we are collectively stuck in the Root Chakra, as we are not connected to the Earth and HER healing energies. I'm also told that we HAVE TO HEAL our lower Chakras, i.e. the lower level energies (fear, anger, sorrow) that we are mired in, before we can move into, or live in the Higher Vibrational energies, or Higher Chakras. This includes the 3 lower Chakras plus the Heart Chakra. The ones that are most out of sync are our Root - of course! Along with our Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras. SO many don't believe in themselves nor love themselves in our world, that it is truly heartbreaking for many of us to see.

And, as Healers, we've been told to stop healing others on an individual level, that we each have to find our own way to healing, and make that a priority in our lives at this time. This is due to the Ascension energies and the raising of the vibrational level here on Earth. We can't stay in the lower level 3D energies to help them, without compromising our own path. HOWEVER!!! I am now being told that we CAN share our own healing stories and methodologies, in a way that will allow others to find their own way to healing.


I'm sorry. This is a VERY long conversation, and there is a lot more that needs to be said, but we will have to pick it up another day. I've given you a lot to think about, and I'm going to stop here for now.
Sending out love to one and all, and to our first mother, Mother Earth!
May we all heal our emotional waters together!
