CLARITY – Leaving Victimhood Behind Forever!

*Quest, straight edgesIt’s time to leave victimhood behind – forever!

I never thought of myself as a victim when I was younger in any obvious way. Yet I now see how much the attitude of victimhood permeated my self-image, in the sense of not knowing I had power over my own life.

Like many “sensitive souls,” I thought those who had a knack for life in the 3-D plane had it together. I found it harder to compete and put more energy into my inner life than my outer. I was a “victim” to my fears and inability to trust life and myself. 

Fast-forward many decades and I now understand much more about what’s possible in life and more about the role of “victimhood” generally.

I understand that even those whom the world deems successful are often “victims” too – reacting to pressures, expectations, and values coming from outside of themselves, not from authentic autonomy and choice.

And on a deeper level, the prevailing idea of what it means to be a human being – a limited personality contained in a mortal body – is a delusion based on victimhood, for the basic model is one of fundamental helplessness. (Do you agree?)

The only way to leave that fundamental victimhood behind forever is to step into our True Identity as spiritual beings, and start to experience the freedom, power, and joy to be found there. 

I can’t give you a formula for how to achieve that, but I came up with an acronym that may be  helpful: C.L.A.R.I.T.Y.

Here are some rules of thumb that are genuine antidotes to the unconscious victim mentality that most of us have without even knowing it:

C: Have Compassion for yourself and all you experience.

L: Choose Love for yourself, the world, others, and your divine source.

A: Pay Attention and be Aware of your feelings, thoughts, body, and actions, and of how you interpret your experience (what you say to yourself), and of what you really want.

R: Take Responsibility for where you put your energy: what you focus on, what you think and say, what you do that affects others, your environment, and yourself.

I: Be Intentional in what you choose to create and call into your experience.

T: Trust the higher Truth of your being as the Touchstone of your life and keep Turning Toward That and Turning Things Over to That. 

Y: Say Yes to the infinite potential of YourSelf with joY and plaYfulness. 

Or if you want a shorter version: 

Choose Loving Awareness, Responsibility, and Intentionality. Trust YourSelf. 

Akashic Guides: Taurus, Plant the Seeds of Life

Pink globeI asked the guides of the Akashic Records to speak about the Taurus New Moon. This is what I received:

There is certainty in the rising of the buds out of the earth each Spring and as such there is in the field of Taurus the power of the planting. That is: What you sow, that will you reap. 

It is the creative action that is paramount. It is taking action in the physical dimension of your reality that is needed.

And for many people that holds you back, for you have not fully graduated, not yet emerged into completely being here. 

Yet look around you and behold the beauty and the glory of the garden of life. It is no accident that brings you here. It is all on course and on purpose.

Therefore enjoy and rejoice in the plenitude of Earth. Enjoy that your cup runneth over – and it does with every breath you take. Enjoy and partake of the golden energy that flows throughout this realm. And open your arms to receive that downflow. It is yours as much as anyone’s. 

You are here on trust and you deserve to receive all that is part of this reality.

For that to happen, though, you must enjoy this realm and receive it. If you are judging and rejecting, that holds your goodness at bay and all that you want. Those seeds do not get planted in the rich earth that is waiting for them. 

Do not hold back the seeds of your life but plant them now and watch your harvest grow. 

Plant Seeds of Manifestation w Taurus New Moon

New MoonAfter the forward thrust of action with the Aries new moon, we now get to work with the strong grounding energy of perseverance, follow-through, and physical manifestation that is earthy Taurus.

Taurus represents the practical world and is a great time to start physical projects, whether having to do with your home, your garden, or your finances.

It is also is about what you value and prioritize, including how you value yourself. It’s about nurturance, indulgence, patience and going slow.

Taurus is ruled by Venus and partakes of her beauty and sensuousness, including the body and nature. Taurus also loves stability, support, and our bodily basic needs. It’s a great time for taking walks, getting a massage, and cooking great meals.  

Taurus is associated with manifesting abundance in the physical realm.

This Taurus new moon is a perfect time to plant seeds that call for practical action and in particular installing new positive habits. What habits do you want to let go of and what new ones would support your values – especially in the physical or financial realm? With the perseverance of Taurus, you can spend the next 28 days practicing until your new habit becomes part of your life.

This coming New Moon in Taurus: Sunday/Monday, May 17-18th at 9:13 p.m.Pacific, 12:13 a.m. Eastern, 5:13 a.m. GMT. (The intentions are best set around that time, or within 8 hours after, but within the next two days is fine.)

The areas to focus on when setting intentions include:

  • Money – Focus on developing confidence in earning and handling money. Let go of financial anxiety, unworthiness, and self-sabotage; develop financial independence and ease.
  • Building solid foundations – Use your persistence, perseverance to make step-by-step progress with thoroughness and care. 
  • Reliability – Practice patience, steadfastness, trustworthiness, dependability, keeping one’s word to self and others.
  • Self-worth – Live according to your values, feeling worthy of having your needs met and asking for that, of setting boundaries, self-care, strength and determination, not needing external validation.
  • Physical senses – Relax and indulge, cherish your sensuality, physical comfort, and pleasure. Get massages, take walks, enjoy beauty. 
  • Enjoyment of Earthly life –  Practice gratitude, appreciation, contentment. Feel your rapport with nature, and that you are at home here on planet Earth. You deserve to prosper and thrive. 
  • Combat inflexibility – Release stubbornness, resistance to change, attachment, possessiveness, stagnation.
  • Health concerns include throat, chin and neck; vocal cords and voice; thyroid gland, and coughs.

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 12:13 and 8:13 a.m. Eastern, on May 18th) or within 48 hours after that (through Wednesday, May 20th around 12 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 use words such as “I choose, I intend, I create, I wish or want to experience, I request, I ask for, I call to me…..”  One good choice is “I accept these things — or something better — into my life now, for my highest good, and for the highest good of all concerned.” And then list what you want in the present tense. 

5. You might want to say them out loud after you write them down. 

6. Some recommend lighting a candle. Or picture the paper you’ve written your list on irradiated by light burning away all anxiety around your desires. 

Keeping our written intentions where we can refer back to them later, to see which actually came true, is part of this experiment. It’s also advisable to keep your intentions in mind, especially as the Full Moon approaches, the time for action. These intentions will also be powerful to review at the end of the year!
