Day 92: The POWER of WORDS

We use so many words in a day, yet aren't aware of the power each one holds. Your words have energy that affects your life in many ways. Each word you speak or think has its own unique vibration. Learning how the power of each word you use will quite simply change your life.
Think of one of the negative words you may use often, like "I hate." The energy of that phrase makes me feel emotions like angrer, sadness, or depression. Hold the thought of these words... actually take it in and feel the energy of the word. Notice the transformation of your own energy vibration and how the power of the words made you feel.
Now take a deep breath and let all that energy go completely... just relax, know that it's okay.
Now take the word love, joy, happiness, caring, or peace. Hold one of these words in and feel the transformation as your energy shifts its vibration. Hold onto this feeling... the more you hold onto the power of the positive words, the stronger it will become. It's your right to feel this way anytime you desire.

With this beautiful secret, you can start to feel the energy in every word you think and speak. You create this energy and it's important to keep your own vibration high, clean and clear. All your good thoughts and words transform over time and attract health, prosperity and love . Use the power of words to bring beautiful things into your life.

All the less favorable, negative vibration words decrease and weaken your vibration, opening you up to things like anxiety, depression, sickness, and even disease. So erase these words from your life and your mind as they have no benefit to you or anyone around you.
The lower vibration words have no room within your existence, especially when you're trying to create a more fulfilling life. So today, start to let them all go. You can, with awareness, literally think before you speak and let every word you allow into your reality create a beautiful vibration of positive energy and protection around you.

Surrounded yourself with words of love, health, and prosperity and let the power of these words do the work for you to help you transform your life and the world around you.
The words I think and speak become my reality.

End to Begin: Full Moon Eclipse.
Via Emily Priceon Mar 20, 2016
libra full moon

Eclipses come in pairs, and the Full Moon in the sign of Libra on March 23rd (check the time/date for your location below) brings a Lunar Eclipse on the Libra-Aries axis.

This is the culmination of the eclipse energy birthed during the solar eclipse in Pisces on March 8th.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned in syzygy—three celestial bodies aligned to form a straight line—and the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from the surface of the moon creating a shadow. (Visually, this eclipse will be subtle, but still visible in North America, most of South America, Australia and most of Asia.)

Eclipse season brings extra power and heat to our lunar events and how they impact us. We often feel the eclipses as endings, beginnings and major energetic shifts in our lives.

As an astrologer, I’ve observed that the solar eclipse earlier in March did not fail to deliver some much needed change to many of my clients. If we have been feeling stagnant in some areas of life, this lunar eclipse will provide a push or a nudge into a new realm. Sometimes we choose it, sometimes it chooses us—and change is not usually comfortable, or sometimes even desired. It can be helpful and comforting to know that major life shifts occurring now are, essentially, happening on a divine schedule (even if it does not match our planned schedule!)

Collectively, we have experienced a lot of reviewing and clearing these past months. First, Uranus went direct after a long retrograde period on December 25th, 2015, very close in time to the (Christmas) Full Moon in Cancer. There has been a lot of Uranian lightning bolt-type energy zinging about these past months (more on Uranus can be found here). We then had an intense Mercury Retrograde period that characterized the first month or so of 2016; I couldn’t help having a secret smile each time I heard someone remark that they almost felt their year began in February rather than on January 1st—aligning perfectly with the end of the mercury retrograde period!

Even if not always consciously, we do feel the planets and their power. Societal influences may have been telling us to go running full force into our 2016 plans, but larger cosmic energies were at play encouraging us to review, sort through and revisit unresolved themes throughout the month of January.

By Valentine’s Day (that’s February 14th if you’re outside the U.S.), we emerged from the retrograde shadow period. The first new moon post-shadow was the Solar Eclipse on March 8th. It was, in my opinion, the first New Moon of the year that really carried the true forward momentum we associate with the new moon energy. We were truly post-retrograde and probably handling some golden insights based on what had been revealed to us during that time. There was a little wink from the multiverse; however, it being an Eclipse, some unexpected surprises and shake-ups may have come along with that new moon seed energy. Chiron and Saturn were major players in that lunar event and the theme seemed to be that of collective encouragement to take some real action around our own healing and our deepest level of service to other beings in this life.

Now, here we are, on the brink of the cherry on top of this recent cycle—the Lunar Eclipse. Mercury is involved here too, tightly conjunct the Sun in Aries (opposite the Libra Moon), and Uranus is also conjunct the Sun by sign in Aries. In some way, this Lunar Eclipse in Libra is the period at the end of the sentence. It is not the end of the book (although for some of us, something major enough may be culminating for it to feel like that!), but there is definitely value in a moment of pause at this time to look around and see what was unearthed, rebirthed, or cycled away in these past months. The sign of Libra is known for her focus on balance, harmony, beauty and friendship.

When we have an Eclipse on the Libra-Aries Axis, we are essentially being asked to look at “I” versus “We.”

Where do we end and others begin? How are we balancing our needs and wants with those of others?

Mercury always highlights communication. What is our inner dialogue? How do we communicate with Self? Are our thoughts and words that we share with ourself and others in alignment with what we most want?

Do we make space for balance and beauty? Or are there times where we tread into the waters of overconcern with our appearance, self-consciousness, or being too limited by what others may think of us?

Mars is sextile to this Moon, so there is some extra oomph to power us past these limits. Use it!

Think of the bright light of the Libra Full Moon as a spotlight showing us the truth of where we’ve been since last March and the divine trajectory of where we might be headed. The energy of this lunar eclipse is actually perfect for the Tax Season vibe we’re in the midst of here in the States. It is the moment for a full inventory—not just the two weeks since the Solar Eclipse, but the overarching cycle of the last year, and the mini-review cycles within that (such as retrograde periods).

Thorough review and assessment can be an arduous and tedious processes, but there is no doubt we will perform our work with greater ease, elegance and grace in the new cycle if we lovingly offer our precious time and attention to an honest look at our losses and gains. Making peace with the past is challenging, especially since the Libra Moon opposing Mercury in Aries might bring up a storm of conflict between the rational, more diplomatic mind and the hard-wired gut instinct.

As with most strong waves of emotion and awareness, knowing that the experience is temporary can help a great deal. Bringing awareness to what we are feeling and thinking without immediately acting upon it is a good lunar eclipse protocol for anyone. Much will be revealed to us, but emotions will be simultaneously running high. We can take some time to process and set our sights on April’s new moon for next steps.

Allow the storminess of the lunar eclipse to pass and trust that any upheaval is clearing space for fresh opportunities. If you’re curious about how this Eclipse may be affecting your chart personally, look to the house of Libra in your own natal chart and any planets there for greater clarity and insight.

Full Moon Journaling Exercise:

The Eclipses come in pairs, every six months. This Eclipse cycle crystallizes the past year and its lessons by looking back to other related Eclipses. To get a sense of what this lunar eclipse may mean for you, there are a few dates to review. The timeline runs from March 2015 to September 2016, with peak moments occurring September 2015 and March 2016 (now!).

Think back along this timeline.

What stands out? Is there any significant thread or theme?

Allow yourself space to process through the events of the past 12 months.

What lessons are you taking with you? Can you see where you might be headed by September 2016?

If there is something you are still carrying that you won’t want to take with you to that culmination point approximately six months from now, this is a good time to begin releasing it. If you see clearly what that is, write it down and burn the paper four days before the next new moon. Use this full moon to see clearly, with balance, grace, and ease, and to release the unnecessary before entering into the next cycle of unfolding.

Clear a simple space for a full moon altar, if you do not already have one, and place your most sacred intention there, along with a note of gratitude for all the work you have done so far. Surround it with beloved images and objects in line with your intention. Light a stick of incense to send your prayers upward and connect consciously with Spirit. You can return there throughout the next week to allow your insight to open and grow.

Poetry of Mary Oliver

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice--
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do--
determined to save
the only life you could save.

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

-------------

“to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go”

- Mary Oliver

Hollow Bones




Elder's Meditation of the Day January 7
"When we become hollow bones there is no limit to what the Higher Powers can do in and through us in spiritual things."
--Frank Fools Crow, LAKOTA
If we want to be of maximum use to the Creator, we must ready ourselves to do so. if we are to become a channel for His purposes, we must prepare ourselves to do so. If we have resentment, fear, selfishness, or anger, we are not hollow bones.
We must be rid of these things.
We must change ourselves.
We must ask for forgiveness for ourselves and forgive our brothers and sisters.
We must keep our insides clean.
We cannot use our power in a good way when we have blockages such as hate, judgement, and envy. When we are free of these things the Higher Powers can use us beyond our wildest imagination. Then we can really help ourselves and help our people. Only when we are hollow bones can we have an effect on the world.
Oh Great Spirit, remove from me the things that block my usefulness to You. Remove from my day all thinking that is out of harmony with Your ways. Grant me Your peace and allow me to function as a hollow bone.

Some of the Words of John Trudell

Listening (Honor Song)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHQnEyEv3gY


Take Back the Earth 



John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message.

In addition to his music career, Trudell has played roles in a number of feature films, including a lead role in the Mirimax movie Thunderheart and a major part in Sherman Alexie's Smoke Signals. He most recently played Coyote in Hallmark's made for television movie, Dreamkeeper.

Here are some John Trudell's most powerful and inspirational quotes

1- Every human being is a raindrop. And when enough of the raindrops become clear and coherent they then become the power of the storm.

2- Everything that has ever happened to us is there to make us stronger.

3- The strength of the poetry as we enter into whatever it is we are entering into, will be determined by the clarity of the thinking we put into it.

4- In the society of illusion, reality must manifest itself.

5- Protect your spirit, because you are in the place where spirits get eaten.

6-The past is more than a memory.

7-Sometimes when it rains, it's not that simple, when the sky has reasons to cry.

8-It’s like there is this predator energy on this planet, and this predator energy feeds on the essence of the spirit.

9-I'm just a human being trying to make it in a world that is very rapidly losing it's understanding of being human.

10-We must go beyond the arrogance of human rights. We must go beyond the ignorance of civil rights. We must step into the reality of natural rights because all of the natural world has a right to existence and we are only a small part of it. There can be no trade-off.

11-We’re not Indians and we’re not Native Americans. We’re older than both concepts. We’re the people, we’re the human beings.

12- The great lie is that it is civilization. It's not civilized. It has been literally the most blood thirsty brutalizing system ever imposed upon this planet. That is not civilization. That's the great lie, is that it represents civilization.

13-Our bones, flesh and blood are made up of the metals, liquids and minerals of the earth and everything on this planet is made up of the same things. As humans we have being, so everything on the earth does too in our culture, because we are made of the same thing.

14- "We are a spirit, we are a natural part of the earth, and all of our ancestors, all of our relations who have gone to the spirit world, they are here with us. That's power. They will help us. They will help us to see if we are willing to look. We are not separated from them because there's no place to go -- we stay here. This is our place: the earth. This is our mother: we will not go away from our mother.

Modern Humans are Walking Dead! ~John Trudell


 

Native American, John Trudell, explains how people today are going along with society, cut off from a spiritual, tribal past in a unified realm of Being.
 “Protect your spirit, because you are in the place where spirits get eaten.” It’s not surprising that zombie movies and thrillers are so popular to the modern human.

The zombie has become an adequate metaphor for the modern man. We live in a time where our most esteemed institutions have no spiritual connection to reality.

One solution for paving the way out of “Zombie Land” is for human beings to re-establish a spiritual connection to the Earth.

8 December 2015

I am so grateful to wake up every day. I have choices today that I didn't have five years ago, not because they weren't there but because I never believed they were. I thought I had to wait and follow and now I know I can jump and lead. 

This winter I will be working on making my dreams reality and I have a framework of what that looks like in my head. The job is to put it on paper and #MakeitHappen. Exciting to come out of that fog of indecision and lace up my big girl boots for a change. Since I began to recover from drug and alcohol abuse, I've been building up pieces of a shattered life, its no wonder I feel scattered too. I'm beginning to accept the fact of my muddled mind and emotions and embrace the fact that it's the #WayItIS or will be for the next couple of years at least. 

Giddyup!
