Akashic Guides: Divine Mother in Cancer

Moon in blue skyI asked the guides of the Akashic Records to speak about the strong emotional nature of Cancer. This is what they said: 

What is coming in the stars will pour into your hearts before long. 

There are no secrets left, for all will be made clear in the light of day.

All the ancient fears and sorrows are ready to be washed clean by the Divine Mother. She who is your own deepest truth is wooing you to come home to her and seek refuge and protection within her loving and infinite heart.

There is no pain too great to be healed by her infinite mercy. 

So take great joy in this moment of turning inwards and to the love at the heart of the Universe. If you take it up, you will be rewarded. If you go within and complete the cycle you will be joined there by another whom you already know. 

There is nothing to fear and nowhere to go. It is all here already. You only have to ask and open your hearts with great courage and truth-telling.

Always seek to tell the truth as you see it, for the truth is greater and more beautiful than you believe. You will be shown a greater and greater truth as you dare to approach it. 

Be of good cheer, the Mother is near. 

Emotional New Moon in Cancer

New MoonThe new moon enters watery, emotional, motherly, nurturing, domestic Cancer this week. It is a great time for self-care, self-compassion, and emotional awareness.

There will also be a number of transits – including a tight Mars-Mercury conjunction in Cancer and some major squares and oppositions – that will put pressure on security-minded emotional Cancer. As a result there may be some emotional cleansing, bringing up of suppressed feelings, and/or triggering of tempers. 

It’s all in the service of connecting with our deeper truth and getting clear about what we truly feel and want. It may be a time for self-examination, clearing out of old patterns and healing ancient fears. In fact, it’s a perfect time to clean out our emotional body, getting rid of old debris. (And take a shower afterwards, using the watery nature of Cancer.)

In addition to heightened emotional sensitivity, there may be challenges to our sense of security – one of the major concerns of Cancer – including emotional, financial, home, business, and relationships. Prudence is in order. 

Above all, self-love and compassion are being called for. 

This coming New Moon in Cancer: 
Wednesday, July 15th at 6:24 p.m. Pacific, 9:24 p.m. Eastern, 2:24 a.m. GMT onJuly 16th. (The intentions are best set around that time, or within 8 hours after, but within the next two to four days is fine.)

The areas to focus on when setting intentions include:

  • Emotional Communication – Whether communicating with your loved ones, family, business associates, or with yourself, you may experience heightened awareness, including things like old grudges and hurts coming up. It may be good to clear them but be mindful of not getting taken over. Apply compassion and care in all cases. Intend for clarity and peace and healing in this realm. 
  • Safety and Security – Pay attention to your financial and physical security, and take care of your needs. Be prudent in decision-making. Intend for security. This includes emotional security as well. 
  • Belonging – Feelings of belonging, emotional closeness, intimacy – this is a time to acknowledge these needs, and to ask for help when appropriate. Family is important.
  • Domestic Environment – Your physical home (and office) are important as a source of security, comfort, pleasure, and support. Take care of them. This is a good time to beautify, organize, even look for a new place to live or work. Great for real estate. 
  • Nurturing – Emotional nourishment, being supportive and accepting support, taking care of others and being taken care of (including with clients and mentors) are part of this cycle. Honor your Mother- both literally and symbolically, as well as by playing a maternal role in your work and life. Literal nourishment – food- is highlighted. It’s a good time for intimate shared meals with loved ones. Be open to the Divine Mother. 
  • Relax Excessive Self-Protection – Be aware of areas of insecurity, clinginess, possessiveness, fear of rejection, and overly cautious behavior, including emotionally. 
  • For health it concerns breasts ands stomach – about giving and receiving nourishment.
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 or within 48 hours after that . 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!

The Epiphany That Changes Everything!

Image-Heaven:Earth2Do you ever feel like you don’t really belong here on Earth? I’ve felt like that most of my life. But I had an epiphany yesterday that changes everything!

Recently, as part of my preparation for stepping into my soul’s purpose in a bigger way, I have been engaging in some heavy-duty clearing of my own blocks. (Something I strongly recommend to everyone who longs to live their highest purpose.)

After several days of deep inner work, dredging the depths of my refusal to fully incarnate, my reluctance to take responsibility for my physical existence, to fully show up, give my gifts and do what I came here to do….

…I heard in my inner consciousness a phrase and realization that changes everything: Dual Citizenship!

And I heard myself saying: “I declare myself a dual citizen of Heaven and Earth! I accept dual citizenship!”

What I now see is that in order to bridge Heaven and Earth – the work we are here to do in this moment of history – we must hold dual citizenship and reside in both worlds equally. When we go back and forth, entering one zone often means losing the other. I have continually lost touch with practical reality when spending a lot of time in meditation, and have lost all sense of my spiritual connection when I got hunkered down in “regular life.”

Furthermore, to do our Sacred Work we must learn to stand fully in our power. But how can we do that if we’re not willing to really be here? It’s impossible. (Do you know what I mean?)

In my history this dilemma showed up early when, as a youngster, I was told by my parents and society that I had to choose. I had to accept the way things are, get a “real job” and be a “responsible citizen” – or be doomed to a fairly marginal existence without much power.

There was only one choice I could make – I chose Heaven.

What that meant was I lived as an artist and spiritual seeker not solidly rooted in the world of daily responsibility and getting by in pretty sketchy ways.

Actually, I lived much of my life frozen in a state of perpetual childhood because I refused to grow up. As a result, I gave up my right to participate fully in the world as an equal. I watched from the sidelines while others participated, burdened by the gifts I couldn’t give. That was the price of seeking escape from the harsher densities of Earth.

In recent years I’ve stepped more and more into the world, as the call to live my purpose and give my gifts has grown increasingly powerful. Yet still, as I did my clearing, I found remaining strands of fear, unwillingness, and doubt that I really belonged here. I was still holding back.

Until finally the revelation came – I can claim dual citizenship and live in both worlds at the same time. I can allow my soul to inhabit my body fully, and open wide the container for what wants to come through, rooted in Earth and open to Heaven.

I can now take a stand for all those seeking safe harbor in this most exquisite and fragile of worlds that divides body from spirit and love from survival.

I can do my best to help lift the energies and to heal what is split, so that all may freely live in both worlds at once. So that all may claim dual citizenship in Heaven and Earth.

Will you join me?

I’d love to hear from you about how these thoughts affect you. Do you have some of the same issues? If you do and would like help thinking them through … or if you’d like to know more about the powerful clearing tool I’ve been using and how you can benefit from it too  – please contact me!
