Akashic Records on Nurturing and Love


a Inner Light

I asked the guides of the Akashic Records to speak about the nurturing Cancer energies, and this is what they said:

This topic – of loving care, tender nurturing, protection and belonging – which are designated by Home and Mother archetypes – is a central longing for mankind right now. 

It is as though you are on a cliff edge and must choose which way to go. Backwards towards the dissonance of clashing interests and  distrust and fear – or forwards, into the open loving arms of that which has always been waiting for you. 

To step over this line, off of this cliff of solid ground, for some seems dangerous. Who will catch me if I trust? Who will want me if I have needs?  Do I not have to seem strong above all else, to influence those around me?

But we say to you: the day you give up your defense of self-protection – which is only guarding a phantom to begin with – the day you lay down your self-protection and walk into the loving arms of the Divine Mother – then you will know not only safety but what you are here for. You will understand what it means to be a human being. 

For above all else, the human journey you are on is one of gradual degrees of learning to trust Love and to give of yourselves ceaselessly for the sake of Love. 

Eventually all will understand the basis of this love, which is not physical but holds a universal imprint within all creation. To love is to know the field of oneness from which you stepped, into which you will return, and which is your true home and belonging. 

If you can remember your true home you will never lack or fear again. This is the ultimate kindness of the universe. There is none who is not held in this embrace. 

So be gentle with yourself, for you are touching and speaking to a wondrous being of light only clothed in flesh, not separate from the Divine source except by sleight of  hand, by a magic trick of illusion.




New Moon in Nurturing Cancer

a Peach TreeI don’t know about you, but I often find it easier to give to others than to myself. 
Even though I know better, I all too often talk to myself in ways I’d never speak to another, and I can ignore my own needs for far too long. (Can you relate?) That’s why this particular new moon, in nurturing Cancer, is important to me. As I do my New Moon ritual, I want to set the intention to really give myself some tender loving care. I really need that! 

So if you’re feeling the need for more nurturing self-care, this is a good time to focus on that, as the moon enters motherly Cancer. It’s also a time for all things family and domestic, having to do with safety, belonging, and home And family, by extension, can include our communities. So reach out in caring ways. Ask for help or give help. Pay attention to your feelings and those of others. 
THIS COMING NEW MOON IN CANCER is tonight –Friday June 27th, at 12:10 a.m.Pacific, 3:10 a.m. Eastern, 8:10 a.m. GMT. (The intentions are best set within 8 hours, but really within the next two days is fine.)
The areas to focus on when setting intentions for this new moon (regarding what you desire or want help with in any way) include:

  • Home & Family -Physical home (purchasing, moving, decorating) and all family relationships.
  • Safety & Security – Feelings of belonging; financial security; taking care of yourself, attending to your own needs.
  • Emotional Closeness – Caring for self and others, empathy, vulnerability, asking for help, intimacy (including lifting fears of intimacy).
  • Feelings – Awareness of your own feelings and those of others, sensitivity, communicating how you feel, noticing changing moods and not letting them dominate.
  • Nurturing – Emotional nourishment, being supportive and accepting support, taking care of others and being taken care of, Mother- both literal and symbolic, playing a maternal role, close family members; and FOOD!
  • Excessive Self-Protection – Overcoming insecurity, clinginess, possessiveness, fears of rejection, and overly cautious behavior, including emotionally.
  • Health concerns include breasts and stomach. 

Here are some tips for how to use the New Moon energy to plant effective wishes/ intentions/ visions:

1. Write them by hand. (You might want to keep a New Moon Magic journal – that’s what I’m doing. Or you could write them on cards and keep them in a drawer.)

2. Choose more than one but no more than ten wishes or intentions (to activate but not dissipate the energy).

3. Wait until the actual New Moon time or 8 hours after (between 3:10 and 11:10 a.m. Eastern, on June 27th) or within 48 hours after that (through Sunday, June 29tharound 3 a.m. ET). Let the wishes form and choose the ones that feel most harmonious and right to you at that time. 

4. In phrasing your intentions feel free to say “I choose, I intend, I create, I wish or want to experience, I request, I ask for, I call to me……” or any language that feels right to you.  5. Light a candle (optional). It’s been suggested that adding a prayer candle – maybe one of those tall ones in a jar – and letting it burn down would add focus to this ritual.

For the purposes of this “experiment,” keeping our written intentions where we can refer back to them later, to see which actually came true, is part of the point. That’s what makes it an experiment.
