Standing Still, My Biggest Challenge

33Nicolas's picture

After decades of action and being on the move, this stillness has stirred much discomfort.

The COVID-19 pandemic is teaching societies so much. It has brought out the best in some and the worse in a few. The worse in the few will eventually change to the best in themselves. The transition is the hardest part. That unknowing stuck in discomfort while things change, you change, I change, the world changes.

In the midst of a career change, maybe or maybe not, I have to stand still and let the cosmic dice land where they need to be.

And so I end this post as I live this day...

I Ching Right Under My Nose

One of the things I love about getting older is revisiting things that were once part of my life. This has been happening lately and now the I Ching is coming back into my life, except this time, it is with a deeper appreciation and learning experience behind it.

And Thus, The I Ching Walks Back in My Life

A few weeks ago I an I Ching book, the famous Chinese Book of Changes. I used to have one in my twenties. It is great to revisit it with a fresher perspective, more experience, and hopefully distilled into wisdom.

Lately, a few things have made their way back into my awareness. Taoism particuliarly and now the I Ching. It is interesting because it is happening with fresh new sets of eyes. And I love it!

The I Ching is the ancient Chinese book of divination also called Book of Changes. It is used to get a sense of how things are going and if the path you are choosing is auspicious or ominous.

The gist is simple but a little preparation helps eek out more from the experience. As a matter of respect, the book should be kept above human shoulder height when at rest. Use a silk cloth, ideally white, to wrap it in.

In order to prepare for the divination, set yourself in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. Light an incense stick. You can add a candle if you feel it is appropriate. Connect with the Universal energies, your guardians, and the I Ching guardian lineage, if you can. The idea is to turn it into a ceremony and make it as special as it should be.

The rest is simple. Traditionally, the ancient Chinese would use a turtle shell and throw sticks in it. Although that could be a hard thing to do for most these days, sticks can be used on two open bowl. But if you are like most modern I Ching users, three coins will suffice. Any coins will do. I will write about the coin method here to get you going.

"I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you"

I don't think there is an easier and more powerful mantra you can use these days.

Ho'Oponono came into my life a few years ago. It touched me as being so special and profound. Four little sentences that you can eventually boil down into two.

The Simplest Mantra You Will Ever Know

I love you.

I'm sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I spent a whole year repeating it intensely. It was an ongoing mantra. And the results we stupendous. relations cleared up. Knots unfolding from situations.

There's no need to go into too much details here but suffice it to say there is a big difference between traditional Ho'Oponono and its modern iteration. I'll focus on the modern interpretation that came about when Morrnah Simeona distilled the modern version spearheaded then by Ihaleakala Hew Len, alias Dr. Len who co-authored Zero Limits with Joe Vitale.

The great thing about modern Ho'Oponono is that anyone can do it, any time, anywhere at any moment in time. In fact, the more you do, the more you get a feel to it.

For those who don't know about this precious jewel, think of it as a Universal mantra. The order of the sentences doesn't matter. You can arrange the sentences in whatever order matters.

Focusing on the outcome is a no-no. Don't do it. Just repeat it, fall into an introspective frame of mind and let the magic begin.

Happy Cancer Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse!! Happy 4th of July CDT!! In the chart of the United States of America…the Sun is in Cancer at 13 degrees…..and this powerful Cancer Full Moon Eclipse is sitting right on the United States Cancer Sun by degree…activating it! What it means is that “seeds” are being planted at the Core or Life Force (Sun) of the United States that will grow over the next 3 to 6 months. What seeds and what energies will play out? We don’t know for sure, but the Universe is making a statement that something needs to grow/change/evolve in order for the United States to continue to move forward towards higher Evolution. We each have a part to play in this process. This a powerful time to make intentions and manifest for Peace within the United States…and an honoring of everyone throughout the World!! Using the Cancer energies of…. Love, Nurturing, Caring and Protection. For ourselves, humanity, the Earth the World and the United States itself!

Pulse from Source Heading Our Way

by Jenny Schiltz | Jul 3, 2020 | Ascension helpEnergy UpdateGalactic Council of Light

In the briefing I was shown that there will be a signal sent from Source out to the entire Galaxy. This happening in alignment with the lunar eclipse. They explained that a signal such as this had been sent before, but not during my lifetime. It is a clarion call of sorts. (as I heard this it brought to mind Gabriel’s trumpet)

We are all members of humanity, and we all belong to the global biosphere. We are members of oikos, the house of earth, which is the Greek root of the word ‘ecology’, and as such we should behave as the other members of the house behave – the plants, animals and microorganisms that form the vast network of relationships that we call the web of life. The outstanding characteristic of the biosphere is her inherent ability to sustain life. It behoves us, as members of the global community of living beings, to behave in such a way that we do not interfere with this inherent ability.

As members of the human community, we should behave in a way that reflects respect for human dignity and basic human rights. The awareness of being connected with all of Nature is particularly strong in ecology. Connectedness, relationship and interdependence are fundamental concepts of ecology; and connectedness, relationship and belonging are also the essence of religious experience. When we look at the world around us, we find that behind the chaos and randomness, a great order, a grand symphony of life. Every molecule in our bodies was once a part of previous bodies – living or non-living – and will be a part of future bodies. In this sense, our bodies will not die but will live on, again and again, because life lives on. Moreover, we share with the rest of the living world not only life’s molecules, but also its basic principles of organisation. Indeed, we belong to the universe, and this experience of belonging can make our lives profoundly meaningful.
