Consciousness

Unconditional Peace

Published

on


In a world that programs us to be rational, left brained and guarded. In a materialistic society that enslaves the mind into believing that inner-peace is conditional and reliant upon how well we play the game of superficial “happiness”. In a state of mind that keeps us locked into a fear goaded roller coaster ride of recurrent needs and temporary fixes, of highs and lows because of our programmed sense of lack. It is in this world that our souls have chosen to forget, experience and evolve within an ocean of countless illusionary polarities.

As many of you reading this are aware of, a shift in consciousness is taking place on Planet Earth. More of us are awakening to what lies beyond the physical realm and can see through the ego-driven belief systems and structures controlling our world. As the winds of change sweep across our current reality, many individuals find themselves at a crossroad between the mind’s fears and the heart’s call. Challenging situations are arising, and a discomfort in our old routines is intensifying.

Why is this happening?

The purging of old energies within the Earth -that are gradually lifting the veil over governmental corruption -are being sensed in our personal lives as well, bringing forth old emotional baggage and uneasiness in our conventional lives. Such emotions will build up as we keep on missing the point of our soul’s call to let go of what keeps us from expanding towards the wholeness of our potential. As much as collective and personal challenges may feel like turmoil at first, it is merely a sign of old structures/comfort zones breaking down to make room for the new.

“And we’re seeing a higher level of consciousness and many more opportunities for people to challenge their present ways of thinking and move into a grander and larger experience of who they really are.” – Neale Donald Walsch

The Awakening

The corruption of our world’s control mechanism has reached an extent where it restrains our soul’s expansion of consciousness. It does so by perpetuating the fear of stepping outside the box of survival, collective perceptions, adopted belief systems and limitative archaic concepts.

The major media’s fear mongering and mind-numbing entertainment, the business of War, constricting and fear-based religious doctrines, the stringent education system, the pharmaceutical industry, society’s materialistic propaganda and over-emphasis on money and looks, the chemtrails in our air, the chemicals in our food, the fluoride in our water… all of the preceding are merely man-made concepts and profit-oriented maneuvers that are orchestrated to maintain the mass consciousness grid in a low vibratory level of stress, confusion, ignorance, anger and fear, keeping Humanity locked into a very boxed experience. It is easy for a few men to rule in the name of their own greed when human beings of limitless potential are being managed by the illusion of fear, division and dependency.

The very system we live in isn’t about human nature, but is instead about disconnecting us from all that IS natural -our hierarchical society itself is undoubtably ruled by greed-based interests rather than Love. As a result, we collectively adopted a mindset that perceives ourselves as separate from Nature. This disconnected level of consciousness isn’t in flow with the sustainability of the Earth’s eco-system. We act as if Nature is our possession and can be treated poorly for the sake of protecting the “vibrancy of the economy”, yet we have forgotten that the planet we live on isn’t a separate entity, but is in fact a part of who we are.

What about Mother Earth’s vibrancy?


It is time to become aware of the fact that the damage we inflict on Mother Earth is the damage we inflict on ourselves as well, for she is our Home. When we consciously choose to expand our awareness and look further than what our system stands for, we realize that all of these ego-driven structures are doing nothing but molding Humanity into “sheeple” with a herd mentality suited to maintain the functionality of this highly corrupted monetary system. It is simply erroneous to presume that our system endorses a forever-sustainable way of living that is harmonious and respectful of Nature, as well as of Human lives. (The power structure)

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.” – Cree Indian Proverb

The agenda behind this is inherently an attempt at keeping Humanity dumbed-down, fearful and forgetful of our interconnectedness with all life forms. Therefore keeping us oblivious to the essence of who we really are: Spiritual beings of unlimited potential on a Human journey, all connected through the universal Source of Unconditional Love. This conspiracy is essentially aimed at enforcing an illusionary sense of separateness towards everything, which makes a population rather unconscious and susceptible to accepting tyrannical dictatorship and occurrences such as War profiteering. Our hierarchical control mechanism grants all Power to the few and enslaves the many. The belief that life has to remain this way is a myth.

“When the power of Love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

Information about hidden truths and deceit within the political, religious and educational structures of our world are now being shared more than ever before, and more of us are waking up. This major “renewal” of consciousness is much anticipated at the soul level, hence why all the dirt is resurfacing on both a collective and personal level. It is unfolding at a rate and intensity that depends on how many are letting go of old mindsets that no longer serve our expansion of consciousness.

Why shouldn’t we fight for the peaceful reality we wish to create when faced with insanity and corruption all around?

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

Just as quantum physics are demonstrating, when we shift our awareness towards the fundamental construct of reality, we understand that everything we can possibly feel and think of is essentially a form and rate of vibration. Everything on Earth vibrates at certain frequencies, including our thoughts, beliefs and emotions, which are molding our experienced reality via the power of our personal and collective perceptions. As Einstein said, we cannot solve a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it. This shift in consciousness is but a leap beyond the old dualistic consciousness we chose to experience as souls, towards the consciousness of Oneness, which is of a higher vibrational frequency -one of Unconditional Love and understanding of who we really are beyond this physical realm. The angry, judgmental and reactive “truthers” actually attract and emanate through them the same lower frequencies that keep humanity boxed in this low vibrational “matrix” of control.

TO LIVE FROM THE HEART IS TO LIVE INTELLIGENTLY.


The truth becomes simple when you truly awaken to what lies beyond the surface of the material world. This global duality is, in essence, nothing but a war of vibrations. Therefore, it is not foolish to presume that we can become what we fight. The controlling elite of our world know of this, and will keep on controlling us through fear and hatred for this very reason: because their low-vibrational frequencies allow them to remain in control. Let’s not use the very “weapon” they feed themselves with.

Our natural state of Unconditional Peace emanates a frequency that is not only way more powerful than any form of negative energies, but is actually eternal, for it is the source of all that exists. To create in a state of inner-peace, is to create peace.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi

From Duality to Oneness


Whether through personal mystical experiences or openness towards spirituality, many of us are becoming aware of the fact that we are all divine creators, interconnected through the same universal Source of Consciousness. We Are All One. This Source that some of us call “God” is not a separate, superior and judgmental entity as our society’s endorsed religious institutions want us to believe, but is in fact the core essence of Who We Are, which is an all-knowing consciousness that is of Unconditional Love. We, and even darker entities, are but fragments of this loving Source that has divided itself into beautiful souls to undergo their unique and multifaceted journey towards enlightenment. This wonderful dance of souls is allowing Source to become experientially rich and therefore forever expansive.

Because of a past collective soul agreement, we initially incarnated on earth into what is called the “experiential realm”. The purpose was of evolving as souls, lifetime after lifetime, while having no direct guidance and remembrance of our essence of Oneness/Source. All while being overruled by a thicker sense of individual identity, mind and ego, which altogether created a beautifully rich and highly polarized sensorial experience. We then agreed at the soul level to have our “game” altered with an additional challenge, which was to experience the intensity of a blinding control mechanism ruled by separation and egoistical purposes. Although it has been a highly rich and serving challenge, we now have become experientially rich enough through this fear-based illusion and are choosing to move on.

The new collective shift in consciousness stems from the fact that we have all agreed at the soul level to “shut down” the experiential realm and move beyond this collective “amnesia” to create a new, more conscious, expansive and harmonious experience, fully in touch with our natural state of Peace. All that is presently holding our unconscious and archaic ways of living is actually our minds holding on to old limitative beliefs of a lower vibrational frequency, whether adopted from our personal experiences or collective mindsets.

The path towards a world encompassing total harmony and wholeness, as much as it may seem like a lunacy-based fairy tail to the mind, begins simply with the shedding of our own layers of beliefs and emotions that keep us in judgment of our experience, and therefore not perceiving the wholeness, perfection and Love within ourselves and of all that is.

It is time to step free of fears and belief patterns that keep us boxed in our limitative perceptions and that mould our experienced reality. It is time to let go of any emotion or thought that keeps us from being authentic to the magnificence of who we truly are. As we set aside engrained beliefs we have picked up from external influences, we begin to uncover our limitless potential as spiritual beings on a human journey.

Since we are all interconnected beings that are fragments of One Consciousness, we uplift the whole by healing ourselves within.

“It’s just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one.” – Bill Hicks

To Be Change begins with Healing Ourselves


Unconditional Love and Peace is our natural state. It is who we truly are beyond all layers within the mind. We have now chosen as souls to create and therefore experience, in this human physicality, a new world that is in sync with this very frequency of Oneness. Because of this shift in consciousness, we are now in “purging time”. This means that all old densities we carry are being pulled to the surface. It is all of the patterns of our “lower ego” that is keeping us trapped in a low frequency band, which perpetuates personal and collective disharmony.

If inner-peace is only conditional when the mind is holding on to limitative belief patterns of the lower ego, then what are these patterns? And how can we move beyond them?


First off, when we hear the word “ego”, most will relate it exclusively to the definition of selfishness or pride, but the human ego is actually the impressive “software” that is our Mind. It is the tool that our soul has chosen to incarnate and evolve with. By “lower ego”, I am speaking of the layers that often cover a great deal of ground in the human psyche. The ones that encompass our cultural mentality, acquired beliefs, judgmental thought processes and therefore emotional responses. It is these very belief patterns and our narrowed perception of “what should and shouldn’t be” that stem from the conditioning of the mind through external influences. They are the ones that are taking control over our experience and are slowing our expansion of consciousness.

Does letting go of these patterns means letting go of our personality?

Absolutely not. The human ego is a magnificent gift that is allowing our souls to experience life on earth with unique personalities and talents. Therefore, it would be irrelevant for our soul to desire its total suppression. This shift in consciousness is not about dissolving the multi-facets of our world, human passions, unique flavors and blissful impulses of our Heart. These do not stem from the lower ego, but of our utmost natural and creative potential as spiritual beings having a human experience. It is about dissolving all the illusionary beliefs and man-made concepts that compromise their Freedom.

What the lower ego does, whether in a very subtle or forward manner, is bring fear, shame, judgment, rationalization and therefore control over these very things that uplift our Soul and make our Heart sing.


In these unique times of healing transformation, our souls are choosing to move beyond all “mind stories”, in order to reclaim our limitless creative potential. The lower ego’s patterns encompass all thoughts that stem from a belief of not being whole, and therefore creating illusionary needs and conditions in order to feel “good”.

Patterns of the Lower Ego:

“I lack, therefore I need.”

  • I need him/her with me to be happy.
  • Relationships are all about give-and-take.
  • I need you to be faithful or else I will feel ripped.
  • I own my children, I own my partner.
  • I need proof of love from others to feel loved.
  • I need money to feel safe, work to feel productive, material to feel content.
  • I need outer-beauty to feel beautiful.
  • I am a victim of my experience.
  • There is such a thing as “good” and “bad” experiences.
  • I judge myself and others.
  • I am better/worst than everybody else.
  • I feel unworthy.
  • I need respect, acknowledgment, and approval of me and of my choices in order to feel on track.
  • I have expectations.
  • I need everything to be stable around me if I am to feel whole and at peace.

“To truly be Free, is to be whole. To truly be whole, is to remember that we already are.”

True inner-peace starts with recognizing the Love and wholeness within all individuals, including ourselves. And therefore dissolving, as our journey unfolds, all mind “stories” that stem from a belief of lack and neediness. It is to let go of our sense of victimhood, for in truth, we are the creator of our experience, bringing forth or perpetuating situations that shed light on unresolved turmoil andemotional baggage.

Even when certain individuals in our lives give us a hard time, the interactions between souls is always very different, and the same goes for when we are challenging others. We have been sold on the idea that we can actually harm someone, and that it is unworthy to do so. What if being truthful to ourselves and others could never really hurt anyone even when it appears that way? What if “coming clean” with who we are and being authentic with those around us, no matter how much judgement and challenges we may receive from doing so, is actually the greatest service we could possibly offer to ourselves as well as every souls in our lives? Even if it means breaking a relationship, leaving our job, disappointing loved ones or receiving hate and criticism, letting go of all mind chatter that is holding us back from evolving beyond our ego’s fears and needs is also the best way of assisting the growth of those around you. Every negative emotional reactions and judgement we may trigger in some individuals are actually coming from their own ego’s belief patterns that are being challenged and threatened. No matter how their minds may react, these emotional challenges are exactly what their beautiful souls are asking for, and if their reactions are challenging to you, then it is exactly what your beautiful soul is asking for.

Truth is, all situations that arise in our lives, as challenging as they may seem, are being brought forth by nothing and no one else but our soul, for our soul.


This is why judgment is delusional. There is no such thing as a “good” or a “bad” experience, for they all serve our growth. And as long as we judge and categorize them, we are missing the point and our struggle persists. The more we let go of our attachment to old emotional baggage and shed illusionary layers of victimhood and judgment of our experience, the less our soul needs to create certain situations of disharmony for us to transcend and expand from.

Every Soul incarnates on the Earth plane wanting to achieve a specific series of goals. The Soul incarnates with a purposes – that of expanding in consciousness- and before incarnating it will set up the perfect circumstances and tasks through which such expansion is most likely to occur. These tasks are recorded at the soul level as “Soul Contracts”. They are called contracts since these are goals that the Soul chose to do in a binding manner i.e. the Soul is very committed to getting these tasks done and has set up many opportunities during the lifetime to allow for their unfolding on the Earth plane.” Excerpt from Katie Gallanti’s article

Certain emotional baggage we push aside could even present themselves as a forms of illnesses, which are but energetic densities that are often times manifestations of unresolved issues we still carry.

When we do not feel at peace with an aspect of our life, this very aspect consequently becomes our focal point and will intensify as we continue to ignore or judge it. We all have the free choice to either stay caught up in duality, or to allow ourselves to heal and embody the pure Love and Freedom that we are. The more we unleash our Heart’s consciousness, the very frequency we emanate will have a ripple effect on our surroundings, creating openings towards freedom for all souls around. If we would perceive all challenges, whether personally or collectively experienced, as wakeup calls to heal what has been ignored, how beneficial would that be to facilitate the change we wish to see in the world.

It would only require 1/3 of humanity to live from the Heart, in order to shift the whole collective consciousness and therefore create a new reality.

It is time to let go of all forms of judgment, for even if we have been led to believe we have no control over our experienced reality, this claim has never been farther from Truth. Our own consciousness affects everything around us -it literally mirrors our reality. The realization of this is what reclaiming our true Creator essence means, and it is only achieved through inner-peace, through truly understanding the perfection and unconditionally loving consciousness behind all enfoldments, despite how the ego may perceive things to be.

To follow our heart’s calling, to be the pure reflection of that which we truly are without any strings attached, without any expectations and need of approval, is really all that is required of us. It is how we raise our own vibrational frequency towards the one of pure Love. No spiritual dogma, religious doctrine, warrior mentality or fixed step-by-step procedure needed. It is this simple Truth that will change the face of our vibrational reality as more awaken to their higher purpose, which is to be anchors of light, of who they really are.

Letting of all that keeps us from emanating the Love that we are is the path towards Freedom, yet we should remember that the path of the Heart is never set in stone, it is a natural flow. The moment we try to control outcomes and make it a rule, the rule obstructs the flow. Therefore, I feel it is important to mention that the purpose of identifying our own limitative fears and beliefs is not to judge and resist them. There is no mistake and nothing to be shameful of, for all is but an experience. Transcending duality cannot be achieved with the mind fighting against itself to reach the Heart consciousness, just as peace cannot be created with war. Smiling at our ego, understanding the perfection in ourselves at all moment and embracing the human experience -all while trusting our higher awareness -is what consciously evolving means.

“We must let ourselves feel in order to heal.”

No more beating ourselves up. It is time to allow our fearless intuition to guide us, and to trust the flow.

Let’s have integrity and compassion towards ourselves and others, for it matters not how long we have struggled and worn masks of fear, but how much expansion will occur as we let them fall off. It matters not how it may stun at first, for the healing process is what our souls have chosen to undergo, in order to become the change that is needed to shift our world.

“All along this ride, we have fought against and avoided a mirror. What looked like our opponent was but a reflexion of our own mask, and the moment we drop our own mask, the “foe” will drop it’s own. What we will see, is the reflexion of ourselves.”

WE ARE ALL ONE

Are Human Beings “Extraterrestrial?” Did We Come From Somewhere Else?

Published

on

Photo by Drew Tilk on Unsplash

Are we alone in the universe? The obvious answer coming from mainstream science these days is a big no. It’s quite clear that we’re not alone, that’s the general scientific consensus. The next questions to ask are: Has advanced ‘super intelligent’ extraterrestrial life visited our planet in the past, and is extraterrestrial life visiting our planet now?

For years, if you believed that intelligent extraterrestrial life has visited our planet, you would have been put in the ‘conspiracy theorist’ category. But today, that’s not the case. Perhaps this ridicule was as a result of something specific–the very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency said that there was an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” when it came to the topic of UFOs.

UFOs are no longer taboo, and their existence has been disclosed thanks to millions of pages of unclassified government documents from around the world. They’ve been photographed and recorded on video as well as tracked on radars. They’ve performed maneuvers and were clocked travelling at speeds no known aircraft on Earth can travel. Furthermore, there are many witnesses, from astronauts to civilians to high ranking military personnel to academicians and more, who have been creating awareness and putting all of the evidence out there for us to see.

We are in a process of ‘disclosure,’ a slow one, and it’s a subject that leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. The implications are huge, from spiritual to technological to scientific and beyond. It really opens up pandora’s box.

The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe is one of the biggest questions in the history of mankind, along with how we got here and who created us. Perhaps they are all interrelated? We have yet to answer these questions, yet God as well as the theory of evolution seem to be heavily pushed on the population in an almost unquestionable manner, leaving humanity in a divide, constantly disagreeing with each other without ever being able to find common ground.

Did we come from outer space? I don’t watch Ancient Aliens, but I am sure many people are aware of the biblical, ancient, and indigenous lore of human beings coming from outer space. There are no shortage of stories regarding this, but it’s a perspective that we never really hear about and one that is never addressed within mainstream academia. That being said, anybody who truly has a passion for this subject is going to go down that rabbit hole.

Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon, said he “happens to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we are not alone on this planet” and that we have “been visited many times.” He is one of many astronauts to express this. It was while coming across his comments that I stumbled upon the comments of Al Warden, who said in a TV interview:

We are the aliens, but we just think they’re somebody else, but we’re the ones who came from somewhere else. Because somebody else had to survive, and they got in a little space craft and they came here and they landed and they started civilization here, that’s what I believe. And if you don’t believe me, go get books on the ancient Sumerians and see what they had to say about it, they’ll tell you right up front.

He seemed pretty confident in his knowing.

He’s not the only one to assert such things, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were jointly awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology for Medicine “for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material,” and they also shared this belief.

In his book published in 1982, Life Itself, Crick argues that there is no possible way that the DNA molecule could have gotten its start here on Earth and that it had to have come here from somewhere else. Within the mainstream scientific community, the generally accepted theory is that we are the result of a bunch of molecules accidentally bumping into each other, creating life. However, according to Francis, we are the result of what is now known as Directed Panspermia. Crick and a British chemist, Leslie Orgel, published their paper on it in July of 1973.

Their theory explains that, “organisms were deliberately transmitted to earth by intelligent beings on another planet. We conclude that it is possible that life reached the earth in this way, but that the scientific evidence is inadequate at the present time to say anything about the probability. We draw attention to the kinds of evidence that might throw additional light on the topic.”  (source)

As far as Crick’s thoughts on the theory that we are the result of accidentally  bumping into each other, he thinks this was as likely as the assembly of a jumbo jet hit by a hurricane in a junk yard. In other words, he thought the theory held little to no credibility.

The theory of evolution is taught today as a fact, when in reality it has little backing. In fact, 500 scientists in several fields came together a few years to create “A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism.” There are countless studies being published calling into question the theory of evolution. Not long ago, we wrote about a new genetic study that did exactly that, you can read more about that here.

recent paper published by 33 scientists in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal suggests that the flourishing of life during the Cambrian era (Cambrian Explosion) originated from the stars. This is another example of how the theory of evolution would be thrown out of whack.

“With the rapidly increasing number of exoplanets that have been discovered in the habitable zones of long-lived red dwarf stars (Gillon et al., 2016), the prospects for genetic exchanges between life-bearing Earth-like planets cannot be ignored. ” (The study)

There is a great little blurb from Cosmos Magazine, one of the few outlets that talked about the study:

With 33 authors from a wide range of reputable universities and research institutes, the paper makes a seemingly incredible claim. A claim that if true, would have the most profound consequences for our understanding of the universe. Life, the paper argues, did not originate on the planet Earth.

The response?

Near silence.

The reasons for this are as fascinating as the evidence and claims advanced by the paper itself. Entitled Cause of the Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic?, the publication revives a controversial idea concerning the origin of life, an idea stretching back to Ancient Greece, known as panspermia.

What about giants? There are several examples of evidence that exist in support of the idea that giants once roamed the Earth. For example, stored in the vaults of the medical school at WITS University, Johannesburg, there is part of an upper leg bone with a hip-joint that would have stood approximately 12 feet tall. It’s been there since the early 1960’s and was found by miners in Northern Namibia. It is one of the most precious and rare specimens available today that clearly indicates the existence of giants in Southern Africa more than 40,000 years ago.

That’s another story in and of itself, and you can read more about that here.

Further Discussion/Takeaway

The point of this article is to show you that there is a lot more to the human story than what we’ve been told, yet we are still taught that there are only two acceptable possibilities. The truth is that we don’t know, and the evidence points to the fact that what we are being taught and what we are learning from a young age doesn’t hold nearly as much credibility compared to theories that don’t even get mentioned within the mainstream.

Perhaps there is much more to human history and the story of our origins than what we’re told? Perhaps intellectual authorities have been involved in concealing this information from humanity because it would completely change the collective worldview and the controlling mechanisms used to enslave humanity?

Study Shows That Horses Understand Our Emotions & Remember Us Deeply

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a recent study, researchers at the universities of Sussex and Portsmouth have discovered that horses can recognize and recall human expression.

  • Reflect On:

    We are all interconnected and it is beautiful to see more studies coming up that clearly showcase just how aware and in tune animals can be and are.

The more in tune with myself I strive to become, the more drawn I am to explore how connected we all are – not solely with one another, but with everything. This, like many other deeper concepts surrounding life, begs to answer the ever-present question of ‘are there other emotionally intelligent beings out there?’

One could argue that their dogs or other galactic beings (if real) could be emotionally intelligent, but as we look at all of the research, it is clear that most living organisms actually display a very obvious intelligence. From lobsters to plants, they have all been known to display some form of intelligence. This is precisely what was revealed when a recent study explored horses and their interaction with humans.

Let’s take a step back real quick. If you have ever owned or spent a lot of time riding with one particular horse, chances are good that you’ve felt some sort of special connection with them — and wondered if horses even like humans. Maybe you’ve felt like they were actually your friend, or a small part of your family, and wanted to know if the feeling was reciprocal. Research is now confirming that that connection isn’t all in your head — and anyone who has ever had a pet before, horse or not, definitely won’t be surprised at some of these recent findings.

In a recent study, researchers at the universities of Sussex and Portsmouth showed domestic horses photographs of humans with either a happy or angry expression on their faces. Then, later on, the horses were introduced to the same people they saw in the photographs, now with neutral expressions. This new study shows that horses can actually understand and remember human emotions, which is something that makes them seem even more magical than they already did.

“Researchers watched the eye movements of horses as they met the photograph subjects in real life. The horses perceived those who had been photographed with an angry face as more threatening.” – UPI

UPI reports that previous research showed horses tend to focus on negative or threatening objects and events with their left eye, as the right hemisphere of their brain is tasked with assessing risk. In the new experiment, researchers found horses stared at subjects who had been photographed with an angry expression using their left eye.

“What we’ve found is that horses can not only read human facial expressions but they can also remember a person’s previous emotional state when they meet them later that day — and, crucially, that they adapt their behavior accordingly,” Karen McComb, a professor at the University of Sussex, said in a news release. “Essentially horses have a memory for emotion.”

Scientists have previously shown horses can recognize expressions, but the latest findings, published this week in the journal Current Biology, are the first to show the mammals can recall an expression linked with an individual’s face.

“We know that horses are socially intelligent animals, but this is the first time any mammal has been shown to have this particular ability,” Portsmouth researcher Leanne Proops said. “What’s very striking is that this happened after just briefly viewing a photograph of the person with a particular emotional expression — they did not have a strongly positive or negative experience with the person.”

This is a beautiful discovery in and of itself as stated above, outside of ourselves there had not been any recording of other mammals showing this ability.

The Takeaway

With more of us beginning to turn inward for growth, it is beautiful to see that more and more research is coming to the forefront revealing our fellow animal kingdom as being connected and in tune with us as much as their surroundings. At times when everything else seems to be chaotic, remember to be still. The real magic within us and our connectedness to everything is what oneness consciousness is all about. You are not alone in this world, let alone in the universe. It is in our awareness that we allow bonds that were seen as less than to blossom — it is in our remembrance of Self that we re-member as One with all.

Full Moon In Aquarius: Pleasure & Originality

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Aquarius which is exact on August 15th at 12:29 pm, Universal Time. It will appear the fullest on the night of August 14th in the Americas and on the night of 15th everywhere else.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Leo. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Sun in Leo and Moon in Aquarius. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs. We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Leo side and others expressing the Aquarius side.

Leo is associated with self-expression, creativity, love, affection, children, courage, vitality, passion, leadership, generosity, and playfulness. Ruled by the Sun, it is also about shining in our power and being in alignment with what really lights us up and gets us excited.

The negative expressions of Leo can be egotistical, self-absorbed, authoritarian, dramatic, stubborn, jealous, and hot-tempered.  As it is associated with seeking praise and attention, it can be demanding of respect and be too loud and boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that.

The best way to approach Leo energy in a positive way is to be in our authentic and heart centred version of ourselves; whether it be in our creations, how we perform, or how we express other Leo traits previously mentioned. When we do this, we are more likely to receive a supportive response from those on the receiving end.

Aquarius is associated with friends, social networks, the group, the team, humanity, and being in the best interest of the collective. Associated with Uranus, it can be unconventional, idealistic, innovative, original, inventive, technological, reforming, and even revolutionary. It tries to figure out how to do things in a better way and takes the future into consideration. Although it is idealistic, it still applies itself intellectually and rationally yet can also be theoretical at times.

Negatively, Aquarius can be overly detached, aloof, unemotional, and very invested in the mind at the expense of the heart. Traditionally ruled by Saturn, it can also be unyielding when it comes to the ideas and perspectives that it has already decided on.

Aquarius is also associated with science which negatively is reflected by Saturn as it is limited to the material world, yet reflected positively by the innovativeness of Uranus. Furthermore, other Uranian expressions of Aquarius can be of a higher level of consciousness which can go beyond the limitations of only observing the physical aspects of reality, and integrating the spiritual as well.

Both Leo and Aquarius have some similarities. They are ‘Fixed’ signs and therefore can both be determined yet stubborn. They are also both associated with originality and authenticity. In Aquarius, this comes from its unconventional and innovative Uranian attributes while in Leo it comes from being inspired by its heart centred self-expression.

Full Moon Opposing Venus Superior Conjunction In a Quincunx With Pluto

At the time of this Full Moon, Venus is closely aligned with the Sun in Leo from our Earth-based perspective which is known as its ‘Superior Conjunction’ lasting from August 10th-17th. This is when the Earth and Venus are on opposite sides of the Sun.

This is a period in which we may experience important developments connected to Venus ruled areas (love, relationships, friendships, values, finances, worth, creativity, aesthetics). This is sort of like the beginning of a new Venus cycle in which it will be travelling ahead of the Sun until Spring 2020.

However, another way to look at it is that this period can bring more clarity and forward momentum around things connected to what was going on in the Fall of 2018 and building up since then. Venus last joined the Sun from our vantage point in late October when it was retrograde in its ‘Inferior Conjunction’. This was when the Earth and Venus were on the same side of the Sun. .

At that time something may have been seeded or we could have been doing something that may have had a direct or indirect connection to how things are playing out at this point. It can be associated with Venus ruled areas but it could also have something to do with other aspects of your life, triggered by its previous retrograde last Fall.

Due to the Full Moon being in an opposition with this conjunction, it’s also possible that the push-pull energy of the Leo-Aquarius polarity (mentioned above) can have something to do with Venus themes of values, love, relationships, friendships, finances, worth, self-worth, creativity, or aesthetics.

The Sun/Venus conjunction is in a quincunx aspect with Pluto in Capricorn. This can bring in frustrations and/or needed adjustments connected to fears, power, control issues, obsessions, hidden matters, shadow qualities, repressed feelings, sex, desires, structures, and ambitions to any developments connected to the Superior Conjunction of Venus. For many people, this may also be associated with the themes of last Lunar Eclipse.

Mercury Trine Chiron and Square Uranus

Less than seven hours before this Full Moon, Mercury (which has returned to Leo) ended its post shadow period of its previous retrograde that occurred throughout July. In the last few weeks things may have started to flow more smoothly and we could have experienced some resolutions and clarity around any challenges or issues that came up in the month prior. We may feel things moving forward and could also experience further developments related to this in early September.

During this Full Moon and in the day following, Mercury is in a trine with Chiron and square with Uranus, which has recently begun its retrograde. Our thoughts, communications, or other developments can be healing, holistic, spiritually oriented, unconventional, unique, awakening, and insightful. We can be more inventive, tap into new and original ideas, or bridge different things that don’t normally come together.

This energy can also be a bit unstable, impulsive, or we can be mentally scattered depending on how we apply ourselves. We can experience disruptions, surprises, changes in our plans and routines, or a disconnect in communications. Considering that Uranus is nearly stopped in the sky as it begins its retrograde, its energies are amplified right now. This can also reflect more extreme manifestations of its energy such as rebellion, separation, or even accidents in rare cases.

Mercury Trine Jupiter, Venus Conjunct Mars While Moving Towards Trine With Uranus

From August 20th-21st, Mercury will be in a trine with Jupiter in Sagittarius which has recently ended its retrograde and  is now moving forward. This can be good for learning, expansive communications or thoughts, travel plans, positive thinking, and optimism. We may want to seek the big picture, beliefs, perspectives, and meaning. For some people this can be lucky and there is a higher probability that things going on at this time can go very well.

Venus joins Mars from August 23rd-25th. This can be great for romantic, social, or creative activities. It can stimulate passion and sexuality. We may seek pleasure at this time yet we can also be impulsive about it. It can be good for anything that involves female and male energy coming together. Considering that this conjunction is occurring in Virgo, it can also be good for any type of actions or work that involve beautifying anything or even cleaning and organizing.

Both of these planets are also moving towards a trine with Uranus which is strongest over the following week. Venus makes its contact with it from August 25th to 26th which can bring an exciting, surprising, or stimulating energy around our relations and finances.

It can also be be good to participate in something fun that is different or new to us. For some people it can reflect creative undertakings especially if it involves technology. Making aesthetic changes in some way can also be ideal as well.

Mars’ trine with Uranus is strongest from August 27th-29th. This is good for any sort of actions that are unusual, experimental, liberating, progressive, technological, or independent. We may want to do something that involves making positive change.

Things To Consider At This Time

What has come up for you in the last week around values, relationships, love, friendships, finances, pleasures, creativity, worth, or aesthetics? How should you proceed forward based on these developments or realizations?

How can you balance your personal passions with the needs of the collective? How can you resolve any conflicts between leadership and a team or group? Are you experiencing any challenges or conflict between your heart and intellect? What is your gut telling you? What signs are you getting from the Universe?

What can you do to be more innovative, original, or progressive? What areas of your life are calling for growth, expansion, exploration, meaning, or better understanding? Is there anything that you feel you should be doing to help you feel more free?

Do you have fears, repressed/deep feelings, shadow qualities, or obsessions that are creating obstacles or complications? If so, how should you handle it? Do you need to release or unravel anything to help you feel better, heal, or bring more joy into your life?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak of the Full Moon when it begins to wane until the next New Moon in two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on August 15th at 12:29pm Universal Time. You can click here to so what that is in your time zone.
