The five pointed star is incomplete. It needs the sixth point added, which means “union with God.” When will this union occur? Who is God? My question this morning. Let us pay special attention to the workings behind scenes which affect our lives.
Seek the Lesson: Wisdom is born from seeking the lesson in all experiences, both the good and the bad. It is born from the awareness that everything is connected, and that all happens for a reason … even when the reason remains a mystery. Embrace a new idea, new awareness, or the knowledge that comes from listening to your internal voice, and to the human and non-human teachers and messengers who will come in, and out, of your life. Let them inspire you to explore unknown pathways.
See the Signs: We are often sent small signs in the form of synchronicities and coincidences. Be watchful. Do not overlook them in the everyday rush of life. Words, numbers, and symbols that repeat, animals and birds that appear on your path, people who come in and out of your life at odd or similar moments, and those flashes of knowing when you believe something will happen with every fiber of your being – these are all things you are meant to see and hear; messages from Gaia and Great Spirit sent to aid your journey.
Nourish the Soul: Drink in life. Use your senses to explore your world – to see, touch, taste, smell, hear and experience all that is within you and around you. Your journey through life is meant to be a sensory experience. Your life is meant to be a rainbow of colour, full of motion and sound. It is not meant to be a bland, tasteless existence of simply black and white. Be sensual. Explore yourself and your world every day and nourish your soul with every moment.
Nurture all you Love: Take the time to nurture the things you care about so that they may flourish and grow. Your hopes, your dreams, your body, your mind, your spirit, your creations, and your relationships; all that is you, needs to be cherished, loved, honored and respected. Without care and attention, these aspects of self can fall into a state of neglect that does only harm to both you and the world around you. Nurture them, and they will bring you peace and fulfillment.
Choice #1: Seek your Answers Within: If you find yourself confused, your intuition and inner voice drowned out by the answers, wisdom and advice of others then it is time for you to step away. Withdraw to a place of solitude. Like the bear, it is time for you to hibernate, to go within and seek the void, and to embrace the silence that dwells within. Within that silence are the answers to your questions, and because they are answers born of your truths, they will be answers that move you forward, instead of holding you still.
Choice #2: Focus and then Act: There is something you want or need to make manifest, but to make your dreams a reality you must focus your will upon that desire and do what needs to be done. Prayer alone will not give you that which you desire. There are things that you must do in order to have your hopes realized. Now is the time to focus your will, your thoughts and emotions, and to get up and take the necessary steps.
Choice #3: Heed your Dreams: Your dreams are a powerful tool for increasing self-awareness for they contain within them the unfiltered truth. Whether it be a dream or a nightmare, they are keys to understanding your inner self – both your joys and your fears. Commune with Gaia and Great Spirit in the stillness of your slumber; learn to read and interpret your dreams. Listen to what they tell you. Pay close attention to how they make you feel. Heed what they reveal and learn who you are and who you wish to be.
Let go of the Old: Are you holding onto beliefs and notions that no longer serve you? Are you blocking your own growth and forward momentum because you fear to end a chapter in your life? It is time to release all that you hold onto that no longer serves. It is time to say goodbye to all that no longer has a place or purpose in your life. It’s time to have an emotional, or physical, spring clean. It’s time to let go of the past so you can be open to what the future may bring.
Embrace the Masculine: Within ourselves there are two aspects to our nature – the masculine and the feminine. Here in the present, you need to embrace the masculine aspect of your nature and let it guide your steps. Now is the time to be assertive, to act with authority, and stand up for both yourself and your truths. Fight for what you believe in. Do not allow others to tell you that you must not or cannot. But remember, whilst you allow your masculine self be dominant, you need to temper your assertiveness and determination with gentleness and compassion.
Love without Condition: Do you often find it easier to give advice to others, whilst hiding from the truth that the advice you give is advice that you, yourself, neglect to follow? Do you find it easier to nurture others and show them kindness and compassion? It is time to be kind and gentle with yourself; to love you – strengths and weaknesses – without reservation or condition. Nurture yourself. Be kind to yourself, for you are deserving of the same unconditional care and love that you give to others.
Surrender to the Flow: Through choice and action you can steer the course of your life. But sometimes a need to control every outcome can have you caught up in a whirlpool instead of moving forward. You may move in the direction of your choosing, but it may not be the direction in which you need to journey. Loosen your grip. Surrender yourself to the flow, and trust that you will find yourself exactly where you need to be.
Let Two Become One: Share yourself with the one that you love. Be their best friend and let them be yours. Let your trust in each other be unshakeable, and your love be strengthened by knowing and accepting each other’s flaws and weaknesses, and still loving each other despite them. Give yourself completely, trusting that you will not lose your independence or sense of self, but instead become two halves of a stronger, loving whole.
Remember, when you try to impose your will upon someone or thing, then that someone or thing cannot become that which it meant to be. Be supportive, by all miens, but do not try to steer the process. It will unfold as needed, in due time.
Think on the transformation of the caterpillar to butterfly. You would be wise not to rush the process.
