Last week, I tried something new and made a video of the weekly blog, hoping that it would help to explain things in a better way. This week, again, I'm going to try something different! I have again made a video of the weekly energies, explaining everything that is going on, but this time around, I am also going to include bullet points of all of the info covered in the video, so that on the off chance that you don't want to watch the video, you can still see the prevalent energies and how they are affecting us.
CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE RED FIRE COCK
Cock/Rooster represents Machismo, cockiness, superiority, Ego, and lording it over others. This is what is going on in our nation's capital right now.
What happens in the healing process when our egos get too big?
The Universe conspires to take us down a notch or two, and we learn humility, which balances ego.
So, my advise is, if you have an unhealthy ego, balance it with humility before the Universe conspires to do it for you.
Those in our world with an unhealthy ego, need to heed this warning.
Some degree of cockiness can be healthy, as it indicates that we have self esteem and self worth, and when it is balanced with humility, we do well. It's when Ego or cockiness is taken to an extreme, that problems develop.
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
Our self esteem and self worth are about our Solar Plexus Chakra. When it is healthy, we are balanced. When it is overextended, it results in being egotistical. When it is underdeveloped, it results in lack of self esteem and self worth.
This is a BIG problem in our world right now, as we have those who are intent on asserting their will over others, dominating, controlling, and acting superior - all signs of an unhealthy Solar Plexus Chakra. We are being told to see this for what it is - an unhealthy ego, and an unbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra, in these individuals.
The Universe will conspire to take them down a notch or two. This is a natural part of the healing process.
Until we resolve this problem within ourselves, we will continue to have this unhealthy manifestation of ego in our world. Feelings of superiority must be conquered!
This is the meaning of the Year of the Cock: to help us to balance our unhealthy egos and Solar Plexus Chakras.
We also discussed how each Chakra feeds the one above it, how when the Chakra is balanced, the free flow of energy (Chi) moves upwards to the next Chakra, and how the Root and Sacral Chakras affect each other, and then the Solar Plexus Chakra, and how it affects the Heart Chakra. The Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras work together, for if we do not have self worth, then we can't love ourselves, and if we don't love ourselves, we can't love all unconditionally or accept unconditional love into our lives (Higher Heart Chakra).
NEW MOON ENERGIES
This month's New Moon - on Friday 1/27 at 5:08pm MST - is in Aquarius, the sign of independence, rebelliousness, the Humanitarian, inventiveness, innovation, being unconventional, observant, detail oriented, and the Visionary.
Last week, I asked you to begin thinking about what you wanted to manifest in this waxing Moon cycle, so that we could set Intentions for the highest good of us all on this New Moon. Friday is the time to do this, and then again every day, until the next Full Moon. What innovative and inspirational things can you help to bring into this world? What energies can you wish for that will help to create the world that you want to live in? Be a Visionary in your wishing!
2017 NEW MOONS
It seems that every New Moon this year, will be in the same sign that the Sun will be residing in at that time. This is interesting, and I'm not sure if it has happened before. There are a couple of things that this means:
I believe that it is a balancing of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine energies, as the Sun is masculine, and the Moon, feminine. It may also serve to balance the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies IN EACH SIGN.
Because the New Moon is about endings and beginnings, as it is the end of one cycle and the beginning of another, it will also represent powerful new beginnings and endings in our lives, and in our world. Perhaps even specific to the energies of each astrological sign...
On Spring Equinox (March 20th), the Sun moves into Aries, the 1st zodiac sign. A week later is the New Moon, also in Aries, the 1st zodiac sign. Back at the end of the year, I was given a little info on the coming year. What I was told about Spring Equinox is this: "It's all downhill from here". Yesterday, pondering all of this, I was told, "This is when the fun begins!"
From Winter Solstice through Summer Solstice, the Sun is Waxing, or growing, as the daylight hours grow. After Summer Solstice, the Sun is waning, and the hours of light are diminishing. Therefore, the New Moons prior to Summer Solstice will all be powerful new beginnings, and the ones after Summer Solstice will be powerful endings. BUT - the New Moon is about BEGINNINGS and ENDINGS, each and every time, so we have a chance to release anything on the New Moon, and to bring anything into our lives, as well. These are both individual and collective release and manifestation possibilities - Endings and Beginnings!
THIS WEEKS KEYWORDS
Are Power and Energy, and, of course, Love!
There are a lot of lessons coming up about our energy and our power, and how we are giving it away.
First of all, I'm reminded of the computer programming term, GIGO, or Garbage In, Garbage Out, and the quote: Energy flows where attention goes. This means that what ever we are giving our attention to, is the vibrational level that we are choosing to associate with, and what we are giving our energy to. We have to stay out of the lower level fear-based energies. Stay positive and keep your vibrational level high. This helps us to create positive change in our world, that serves the highest good of us all.
"Focus not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
We can choose to send love and healing to others, to the Earth, or surround ourselves with it. Any of these work, and serve to raise the vibrational level of us all.
Every little bit of light that we bring into the world, helps us all.
Last week's motto, Choose Love, still applies. We may need to do this in every moment, at times, to remind ourselves to stay out of the lower level energies, or when we get too caught up in them. Stating that we Choose Love, brings us into the Now moment, and keeps us present and aware.
ENERGY AND POWER
There are several ways that the Universe has given me that we use to give away our power:
THE BLAME GAME
We've developed a habit of blaming others for what is going on: We've blamed Hillary, The Donald, those who voted for The Donald, the Democrats, Obama, and those who voted 3rd party. We are blaming others, and attacking others, instead of dealing with our own issues of hate, anger, and fear.
This is shifting responsibility for our problems, onto others. It is also giving away your Power!
By not owning what we do, what we want, we give our power to others. Whoever you are blaming, you are making them responsible for your life, your situation, your problems.
Those who have been supporting The Donald, think that he is going to make the changes that they want in our country and in our world. They are putting it all on another person, to do what they want done. Your daddy isn't going to save you or fix it for you! You have to do it yourself!
And this is where we are right now, we've been sitting back and LETTING others do the work for us, and this is not going to fly anymore. We have to accept responsibility for our own lives, for our own actions, for our needs, wants, desires, emotions, feelings, Truths, issues, and problems in our lives. It Is Up To Us!
By giving anyone, your Power, you are failing to take responsibility for your own life. Owning your power, means owning your energy. Use your Power, and your own energy, to make the changes that need to be made, first beginning with yourself and your life. Again, we are seeing the outward manifestation of this internal issue in our world, and this is how we make it stop, by owning our energy and our power! We have to heal ourselves of this problem, by accepting responsibility for ourselves, which gives us back our power.
-Own Your Power
DIVIDED WE FALL
This is another way that we are giving away our power over our own lives:
From the time that we are born, we are divided into groups. Our birth certificates indicate race and gender - those are our first classifications. We are forever after, divided by race and gender. Jobs inquire on applications, apartments inquire on their applications, the US Census inquires every 10 years. Then we are born into a belief system, and again, jobs, homes, and the US Census, among others, inquire about it, keeping us separated. Even hospitals ask...
Then there's our education level - again asked about on job applications (for good reason usually), and by many other places, from surveys to applications for government aid.
We let the government divide and separate us, then we further divide and separate ourselves. An old Apache once asked me, "Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are." I don't think I realized exactly how true that was until yesterday. In school, we are in cliques - preppies, jocks, nerds, and more, and this teaches us to hang out with "our own kind" throughout life. We are divided by the neighborhood that we live in, by our sports team affiliation, by our political party, by our spiritual beliefs, by the tv shows we watch, by the car that we drive, the school our kids go to, the church we go to, our jobs, our economic class, the clothes we wear, and more.Every thing we do online, classifies and divides us further, and we are then tracked by our likes and dislikes. It seems like everything that we do further divides us.
In truth, we've been programmed to accept these LABELS as who we are, and to allow them to separate and divide us.
We have to step out of those boxes that we've been put in, and look around at others, talk to them, see what their issues are, and whether or not we agree with them, recognize and respect them. Yes, we all have issues or agendas, and quite often they reflect the "group" that we feel that we belong with, but in truth, they are all the same. We are all equal - we must act like it. We all deserve respect - and therefore must learn to respect ourselves and others.
We are all in this together. We cannot let anyone or anything further divide us. We don't have time to fight amongst ourselves, there is a much bigger system that we must fight against, one that is trying to run over us all, and it is distracting and dividing us, to keep us thinking small. See the Big Picture. Stand tall. Speak your Truth. You are valued for who you are, your needs are important, your beliefs are important, and your causes are important. Let us all work together towards a better future for us all.
-Respect all, including yourself
KEEPING UP APPEARANCES
These are more things that we are programmed to do by society, our peers, our jobs, churches, etc.
Women: Getting our hair done, our nails done, wearing makeup and the right clothes...
Men: Keeping the hair cut short, shaving, wearing a Suit
These further divide us while encouraging us to feel superior to others (economic class).
These are all about our outward appearances. We have to get back to being comfortable with who we are on the inside. We must learn to ACCEPT OURSELVES for who we are right now!
Life is not a competition!
We are programmed to judge others by their outward appearance. This has resulted in racial, gender, and sexual preference inequality, among other things.
We are all equal, we are all worthy, we are all loved for being exactly who we are right now!
Stop separating yourselves, and judging others. Our uniqueness lies within!
-Accept yourself for who you are right now!
-Let go of the importance placed on outward appearances
-Recognize the boxes you've been placed in, and break free!
