Manifest Dreams

The lovebirds are daily visitors now to the backyard garden. Apparently they get along just fine with all the other species of birds that feast with them. I just counted nine of them, among the grackles, finches, pigeons, and sparrows. Such a miraculous delight to sit and watch these cutie pies fly their colors around like a frenzied artist at work. It is just indescribable.

Looking forward to 2018, and to graduating from college. A goal that in my youth I thought impossible, Nothing is impossible. I just got the breakdown of my NES English exam, interesting, I did score well above the standard, but boy did I bomb in the poetry section. Meter analysis is just not my thing, I knew that going in to the exam lol, at least I know what I don’t know. I have studied it since the exam, and guess what? I still don’t, oh well.

I have a good feeling overall for everybody, and for world consciousness elevation. I still believe be the architect of your dream, build it, and it will manifest. Together we can believe an manifest the world of love, beauty, peace, creation, and harmony that we want to exist in.

Namaste

Listening Love

Listen What The Man Said

For me this article goes beyond astrology and regards conscious loving listening.

Gemini Full Moon: The Gift of Listening

When my friend’s son was small, he talked incessantly. Born with Venus in loquacious Gemini, he jabbered constantly about stories he’d read or what he’d seen on television that morning. His mother is a patient woman, but eventually the sheer quantity of words wore her down. One day, she recalls, driving along with her child chattering away in the passenger seat, she suddenly couldn’t take any more. “Could you please just stop talking for one minute?” she begged her small son. “And immediately,” she told me, “his little eyes filled up with tears. I couldn’t have felt more awful!”

Few feelings are as wounding as not being listened to, especially by those we love. In his book The Road Less Traveled, M. Scott Peck characterizes true, attentive listening as one of the greatest gifts of love we can offer another person – and one of the most difficult. There are times when it’s easier, of course — in the first flush of passion, when your loved one’s every utterance is like honey, or when your toddler is first learning to talk. But to really listen even when you’re not in the mood, when you’re heard the same story a dozen times, when you’re worried about something else, when there’s nothing in it for you personally – that’s hard work.

It’s most difficult to listen when people talk about things you don’t want to hear, things that challenge your worldview. Each year at Thanksgiving, with the Sun in Sagittarius – the sign of beliefs – many family tables are minefields, as we tap dance around topics that we know will invite controversy. The December 3, 2017 Full Moon falls in Gemini, the sign of enthusiastic chatter as well as attentive listening. It falls a couple of weeks too late to lend conversational sparkle to your Thanksgiving celebration, but in plenty of time to deconstruct it. How much loving attention were you able to muster for the bombastic uncle, the long-winded grandmother, the cousin’s  political tangent? Were you too busy trying to be heard to really listen to anybody else?

When we give up pretending that we know everything, we free ourselves to learn from what other people have to say. And if we turn off the cell phone and stop texting for two minutes, we might notice that the woman sitting next to us in the doctor’s waiting room looks scared to death and might be grateful for someone to talk to. Listening – that simple gift of attention and love, like holding open a door for someone leaving a store as you’re entering – makes the world feel a little kinder, a little more civilized.

In public, watching everyone around me texting away and ignoring everyone else, and I wonder how in the world they ever met the people they’re texting with. Cell phones have become like little force fields we carry to neutralize exposure to strangers. They allow us to tune out the raucous conversation of the young men loitering on the corner, but also to ignore the old woman asking for directions to the bus. We are in worlds of our own, jealously calibrating the flow of conversation that has the power to lubricate the gears of a trying world.

The world and its people can indeed be trying, and perhaps we can be forgiven for taking refuge behind the white noise of iPods and banal cell phone conversations. Too easily, though, inattention becomes a habit that persists even at home among those we love, and that’s a problem. Love, as Peck notes, is not just a feeling, but a verb. It’s something we do, a bit of spiritual theater we enact through actions large and small. And listening, even when we don’t feel like it, is a small but powerful act of love. That’s what my friend recognized that day in the car, when her unwillingness to listen made her son cry. She took the lesson to heart, and made up her mind from that day on to give her bright boy the gift of her listening.

The Sun’s annual passage through Sagittarius blesses us with insight into our most cherished convictions. When we tap into our Sagittarius power, we may feel the urge to proselytize about our beliefs; caught up in our own thoughts, we are likely to forget that others see the world quite differently. The Full Moon in Gemini reminds us, simply, that listening – bearing witness to another’s reality – is a sacred thing and a loving act. Listening connects us to one another – and it enriches not only those who are listened to, but also those who listen to them.

Shadows

Paint it Black

So I hear that Jupiter is in my sign, Scorpio. Fun stuff. Coming upon the completion of six decades as me, on Monday. Wow. Here is an article on “Jupiter in Scorpio” from Cafe Astrology. You know my decision to drop the yucky poo English class and take this “Children’s Literature” class was just a splendid idea. I love this class. I want to be my professor, who gets to study fairy tales for a living. I mean, how cool is that? Anyways I got my first A+ on an literary critique essay at ASU, thanks professor! It was my Reader Response essay on The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint-Exupery.

Next up, as I mentioned was the psychoanalytic critique of Alice, which, well . . . we shall see. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is a hard narrative to narrow into a focus when so much is going on. I strayed away from the psycho sexual analysis which is most evident, as I had “been there, done that” with Lil Red Cap, which is one of ten on the list of reading this week. It should be fun.

It is a perfect time astrologically and spiritually for us all to examine our shadows. We all have them and many of them are connected to our inner child. Lets look at them as they arise, release judgement, give them a hug, and heal them. Use prayer or play, or whatever works for you. Practice forgiveness for yourself and others.

 

Much love everyone.

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would paint a butterfly blue?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would hang red feathers from string

Who would hear the angels sing?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would dream a fairy tale

And who would tell it very well?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would count the stars for you?

 

I would answer

It is me

I do

I will paint a butterfly blue

I hang red feathers on string

I can hear the angels sing

I can dream a fairy tale

And I can tell it very well

I would count the stars for you

 

If you ask me, ask me who

It is me

I do

Drench the Earth With Love

New World Coming

Greetings friends & Earthlings. Interesting full moon we are having. A FB friend, Emmanuel Daugher, a spiritual teacher and author, makes lovely FB memes. In a recent one it said, “Let’s Drench Our Planet with Love” and I thought what a good concept to make viral. I dedicate this full moon to drenching the Earth with Love ❤

I have opted to keep myself at home to enjoy the thunder full moon festivities.

Number Nine

Getting to the point where your consciousness is expanded and your soul is fully awake is not an easy place to get to. It’s not impossible, it just takes a bit of time. If anyone is looking for a quick fix or a magic pill to get them to this state, you’re on the wrong planet. To awaken your soul takes a bit of persistence, some patience and faith. It won’t happen overnight but you can make it happen. The result?

A beautiful soul and energy that can appreciate love and manifest anything into being. Some say this is new age thinking and they are probably right. In my opinion, those whom aren’t open to at least a slight amount of awakening will miss out on hidden beauty the world has to offer.

What is it that only awakened souls know and completely understand?

  1. Reincarnation.

Always a heated topic. Either you believe in it or you simply don’t. There’s no in between here. Those with awakened souls get the concept of learning new things and expanding to prepare for rebirth.

  1. Life after death.

Being freed from your human suit into the spiritual realm is something awakened souls might actually look forward to. The spiritual place is one of love, light and free from pain. Who wouldn’t want to enter there?

  1. Our life’s purpose.

Knowing what you are here for and actively pursuing it is something these souls will do with determination and an open mind. They understand they are here for a reason and make sure they are in line with their purpose a t all times.

  1. Time for reflection.

Reflecting on our lives keeps us accountable for our soul’s purpose. There may be a time when we slip away from our true vision and purpose. Reflecting is important for us to steer us back in the direction we belong. Not only is it important, it’s necessary.

  1. True love.

There is no other love. The awakened soul loves all beings and creatures and does not judge. Unconditional love is the purest form. There is an acceptance and a respect only these souls will understand. There is no judging or hate here.

  1. Responsibility and accountability.

They are aware o f who and what they are and value the importance of being responsible for their beliefs and staying true to their purpose. These souls are open to redemption if they required.

  1. Nothing is impossible.

They are open to receiving anything that will truly serve them and won’t take manifestation lightly. The power of manifesting can be abused and awakened souls are completely aware of this power. They only manifest what they need, not for greed or materialistic tendencies, but to nourish their soul s and help them live out their purpose.

  1. We are all one.

Each and every one of us are part o f the bigger and beautiful collective that is Universe. We understand that we all have everything we already need inside of us to live beautiful lives filled with love and light.

  1. Transformation is necessary.

Awakened souls are fully aware of what no longer serves them and what needs to take place in order to transform into the light being that they long to be.

To be an awakened soul is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. They have an aura around them that is warm and beautiful. You will recognize them instantly and want to be around them more. They are natural healers and radiate love and light.  Becoming one will be one of the most liberating thing s you can ever do for yourself. There will be no hate, no judgement and only love.
