The Great Rays of Initiation

Published

on

rays1This is a message for all who genuinely feel a higher calling and a deeper sense of purpose is needed at this time in their lives.  From a soul-level perspective, we are all here to express our gifts and abilities in a unique manner that is exactly tailored to our skill-set and deepest longings.  We are here to be of service during these tremendous times of change, and in order to be effective, we must fully realize the magnitude of the transition we are currently going through.  To successfully navigate this transition, we must cultivate and re-establish our connection to our Inner Being — our Source — for this is where Knowledge lies within us.

What is called for us at this time is a willingness and a desire to be of greater service, to fully step into our roles here, whatever they may be.  This desire comes from the depths of our being, and many of us are feeling this calling now. This is a process that requires greater integrity, self-awareness and compassion. For many of our relationships, outer circumstances, and life experiences may drastically change as this process unfolds.   Ultimately, being really honest with ourselves is required, especially concerning our associates, activities, priorities, and goals.  It is important to understand that opportunities to actualize our higher calling are not available forever — we must be ready, willing, and able to answer the call when the time comes.

The following message is titled The Rays of Initiation and was brought forth through Marshall Vian Summers.  In 1982, he began receiving a series of profound revelations in the deserts of the American Southwest.  For more than 25 years, these revelations have continued, growing ever wider in scope, meaning, and their implications.  These messages are known as a New Message from God, and I believe they are extremely important at this time.  What I admire most about these messages is their directness and piercing honesty, going beyond all rosy and romanticized notions of enlightenment and ‘fast-track’ spiritual advancement.

Please consider checking out more of these Messages or the Steps to Knowledge if you feel compelled to.  Thank you for letting me share!

With Love,

The Rays of Initiation

As revealed to God’s Messenger
Marshall Vian Summers
on July 23, 2012 in Boulder, Colorado

 

The Power and the Presence watches over you

And all people in the world

Waiting for those

Who are ready

Waiting for those

Who are ready to awaken

From their deep sleep

Of desire and disappointment

Watching over the world

Waiting for those minds

That seek freedom.

Not just an outer freedom

But an inner freedom

Waiting for the moment

Of readiness

In the individual.

 

People think

That the Angelic Presence is always there

To abide with them

But this is not accurate.

Indeed

The Presence is waiting

For those who are ready

To respond

To a greater calling

And a greater purpose

In life.

It is those individuals

That will garner the attention

Of the Angelic Assembly.

 

People pray

For many things

But the Angelic Assembly is waiting

For the real calling

From the individual—

A calling usually born of despair

And frustration

Or disappointment in the world

Seeking for something

More real

More authentic

More permanent and

More essential

To their true nature

And purpose

For being in this world

At this time.

 

Great Rays are shined upon those

Who can respond and

Who are ready to receive

Something marvelous

And significant.

 

Great Rays of light and power

Are directed at those

Who are beginning to receive

The preparation

For their greater purpose

And calling in life.

 

You cannot call upon this yourself

Consciously.

It must be born of something

Within you

That is very deep

And very primary

To your life and purpose here.

 

You cannot in your mind

Pray for the Great Rays

To shine upon you

To initiate you

For your mind cannot call upon this.

It must come

From a deeper place

Within you,

But your mind can prepare you

By recognizing

The greater need of your life

And the fact that

You are not living the life you are meant to live

And that you are circumscribed

By many things

Of little value

And future possibilities.

 

You prepare by recognizing the truth

About your life

In a moment of great clarity and sobriety.

You take stock of where you are.

You recognize

That you are lost in the world

Following the prescriptions of your culture

And of those people

Who influence you so strongly.

 

Here you pray not merely for relief from suffering.

You pray for the truth

To be revealed to you—

Not just the truth of your circumstances

But the truth of your life.

You pray for your life

Your real life

To be given to you.

 

This is the calling

That comes from deep within you

Not merely something that the mind wants

For the moment

Not for relief from suffering only

Not just to have a nicer life

Or a prettier set of circumstances

Or to fulfill your ambitions and desires.

 

This comes from the deeper place within you

From Knowledge within you.

This is what speaks to the Angelic Assembly.

This is the result of a deeper experience of yourself

A deeper reckoning within yourself

A deeper honesty.

 

If you are truly ready to respond

Ready to evaluate and change

The circumstances of your life

If necessary

Then the Great Rays will shine upon you

As if a beacon or a spotlight

Has been directed at you very specifically

Not to the people around you

Not even to the person sitting next to you

Not to your husband or your wife or your children

But to you.

This begins then

A process of deeper reckoning and evaluation

A process in many stages of initiation

A process that begins a great turning point for your life.

 

For in truth

You do not know who you are

Or why you are here

Or what you are sent to accomplish

Or whom you are here to meet

What you are here to avoid

What you are here to accomplish

What are the great hazards of your life

Beyond your understanding

What are the great possibilities for your life

Beyond your understanding.

 

You have a relationship with the Angelic Assembly

That watches over this world

And everyone in it.

This is intrinsic to who you are

And why you are here

What you are sent to accomplish

Whom you must meet

Where you must go.

It is a greater journey of your life

Waiting to be discovered and undertaken.

 

Your beliefs

Your ideology

Your religious views

Your spiritual aspirations

Well, more often than not

They merely stand in the way

Of this deeper recognition

Which is not something of this world.

Or anything in this world

But represents your life beyond the world—

Where you have come from

And where you will return to

And the relationships

That are primary to your existence

And to your participation in the world at this time.

 

The Great Rays are powerful.

They reach deep within you

Bypassing your intellect

And all of your beliefs

And ideas

And expectations

And grievances

And so forth

As if they are shining upon a part of you

That you have barely experienced in life

And are barely acquainted with—

Something ancient

Something you might have experienced momentarily here and there

Something unchanging

The changeless part of yourself.

 

This is communication without words.

It is the power of initiation

Generated from the Angelic Host and Assembly

Directed now at an individual

Who has reached the point of readiness

Not only internally

But readiness

where something on the outside

Must be done

For should they miss this point

In their development

And in their life

They could miss their calling entirely.

 

Here timing is critical

For you only have so much time to delay.

You only have so much time

To be lost in the world

Before your opportunity is bypassed

And it is too late for you to respond.

You do not know when this is

But the Angelic Presence knows

Knowledge within you knows.

 

As you approach this critical time in your life

You will feel ever more anxious

About your outer circumstances

Ever more drawn

To something more mysterious

More questioning about your values

And involvements with others

More uncomfortable and dissatisfied with your circumstances

Even if they are pleasurable

Even if they are seemingly beneficial.

 

You become more restless.

You may try to fulfill this restlessness

With more possessions

More activities

More recreation

Even more spirituality

But you are reaching a time of readiness.

It is happening at a deeper level

Byond the realm and the reach of the intellect.

The Presence is watching you

Carefully now

To see how you will respond.

Will you deny your experience?

Will you resist your experience?

Will you try to lose yourself again in romance

Or some other kind of pursuit in the world

Even some kind of edifying pursuit

Like some great social cause

Or political campaign?

Yet this is about something very different.

 

At this time

It is so important

To be responsive to yourself

To practice inner listening

To listen for something deeper

Without coming to conclusions

To orient yourself in this way

For if the Great Rays are directed at you

It will so upset your life

And change you.

It is like being struck by lightning.

 

This experience can be profoundly internal

But it can also be generated

By the arrival of certain people

Who are here

To call you out of your past

And to be a part of your preparation

For a future greater life.

 

In either case

It will begin a process

Of profound change and self-evaluation

So strong now

That you cannot simply deny it

Or think it is something else

For it will seem to overtake you

And you have to yield to it.

 

The Angelic Presence watches you

To see if you can do this

If you can receive initiation

And go through the long

And inexplicable process

That this will require.

You cannot control this process.

You can only keep yourself focused upon it

And that will require

All the self-discipline

And compassion towards yourself

that you can muster.

 

People can fail

At this juncture

With great consequence.

It has to do

With the presence

Of certain other people

In your life

Who will play a significant role

In your greater work and purpose here.

It may be time

For you to meet them.

They may be calling for you.

The time of your rendezvous is approaching

And you must be able to respond.

 

You do not have these opportunities

At all times.

Do not tell yourself

That initiation can happen

At any time

Whenever you feel so inclined

For this is really not true at all.

You have certain opportunities in life

Given the proximity

Of those people

Who will be essential for your success

And given your own development

And degree of self-honesty.

 

For you to be called in this way

You must be prepared

To accept this experience

And undergo the process of preparation

Which is very deep and internal.

You must be able

To respond to those

Who come into your life

Who initiate you

And be a part

Of this great turning point.

 

This is beyond

Your personal plans

And evaluation

Of your life

Entirely.

You may think

Or feel

That you are meant

For something greater

And perhaps

This feeling has been with you

For a very long time

But we are speaking

Of something

Of a far greater potency

And magnitude.

 

If the Great Rays are directed at you

If it is a time of great change

If your time has come

The time for which you have prepared unknowingly

If that time has come

You must be ready to receive

And you must be prepared

To go through

A period of great confusion

And uncertainty.

 

In the world today

God’s New Messenger is here

Bringing a New Message from God

To the world.

If you are to meet him

And for this meeting

To be truly efficacious

You must be prepared in this way

Or you will think

He is just another person

Making great claims.

You will evaluate him

On a personal level

The way you evaluate people

At this present time.

You will not see.

You will not know.

You will not realize

That this is the greatest encounter

You will probably have

In your entire life.

If you miss it

It is missed.

 

God wills for you

To awaken

To your greater purpose

And to receive

The great blessing

From the Angelic Assembly

The Great Rays

But that does not mean

That you will make this rendezvous.

That does not mean

That you can hear

And see

And know

In the critical moment

Where recognition must occur.

That does not mean

Your success is assured.

That does not mean

That you are ready

Willing

And able.

 

If you have a destiny

With the Messenger

You must be preparing for that

Setting aside

That which cannot go forward

Embracing that

Which is crucial

To your success

Building your sense of integrity

Self-honesty

Evaluating your life

To see

What is truly genuine

And has destiny

And what does not

Facing loss

Giving things up

If necessary

Stepping away

From people

When necessary

Stepping away

From your former investments

In people

Places

And things

If necessary.

 

When this life is over

And you return

To your Spiritual Family

They will only have

One question

For you

And that is

Whether you made

Your sacred rendezvous

In life

And gave your gifts

To the world

And in that moment

You will know

With absolute clarity

Whether you did

Or did not.

There is no punishment here

But the weight of failure

Is great.

It means

You will have to try again

And go through

The whole process

All over again.

That should be incentive enough

To encourage most people

To proceed.

 

When you pray to God

Do not pray for little things

Little advantages

Dispensations.

Pray that Knowledge

Will become strong

Within you.

Pray that you will have

The forbearance

And the self-discipline

To hold back

Your fearful

And reactive tendencies.

Pray that those

With whom

You are meant to become engaged

Can find you in the world.

Pray that you will be ready for them

When they arrive

That you will realize

You are making an engagement

Now

Of greater importance

Without trying to

Fully understand

 

What it means

Or what it will require.

 

People who are called

Are called out

Of their former circumstances

And prepared

For a different kind of life.

Everyone has a greater purpose

For being in the world

At this time

But not many people are ready

To receive their calling.

They are not ready

To receive the Great Rays.

 

The future of the world

Depends upon

Enough people

Receiving their calling

And making their contribution

To a world facing

Great and perilous change

A world facing

A Greater Community of life in the universe

A world facing

Economic decline

Environmental destruction

A changing climate

A world at risk

Of collapsing from within

And facing intervention from without.

This is the world

You have come to serve.

It is no accident

You are here

At this time.

 

The Blessing is with you

But you are not with the Blessing.

The calling is waiting for you

But you are busy doing other things

Preoccupied at every moment.

The Angelic Assembly

Watches over you

But your eyes are cast down

To the ground.

You pray for peace

And happiness

And beneficial circumstances

Without realizing

That you are really here

For something else.

You pray to the heavens

That your state of Separation will be satisfactory

And fulfilling

Which can never be the case.

 

The Angelic Assembly is waiting for you

To realize that

Without your greater purpose

And calling

Your life

Is but a troubled dream.

You cannot find fulfillment here

No matter what you do

For you are here

For a greater purpose

And the need of your soul

Is to have this purpose

Realized

And expressed

In the world.

 

If you were not a Greater Being

With a greater origin

And a greater destiny

This would not be the case.

You would just be

An intelligent creature

Living on the surface

Of the world

Trying to be safe

And secure

Trying to be happy

With what you have

And always wanting more.

 

But you are a Greater Being

With a greater origin

And a greater destiny

And the calling is waiting for you

To come to that point of recognition

And readiness.

That sends a signal

To the Angelic Presence

That you are truly ready

And that the process

Must begin.

 

If you cannot generate

This recognition

Within yourself

Then it will be generated

For you

Because your life has reached

The critical point

Where the calling

Must occur

If it is to ever occur in this life.

And that can be extremely disruptive

And the chance of failure will be greater here.

For there is no assurance

You will understand

The meaning of

What is happening.

There is no assurance

That you will follow

What you must follow

And step away

From what you must

Step away from.

 

In a universe of intelligent life

Of countless races of beings

The Great Rays

Are being cast upon those

Who can respond

And who must respond.

It is a Great Plan

For a universe

So far beyond

What you can even imagine.

You cannot conceive of it.

It will make you realize

That your former ideas

Were either hopelessly false

Or greatly inadequate

To address

The real situation in your life.

That is why

You must have humility

And receive correction

Without abusing yourself.

You must allow your life

To be reshaped by Knowledge

Without trying

To reshape it yourself.

It is such a different

Way of being.

It is such a different relationship

With yourself

And others.

It is the beginning

Of a greater life

For you.

 

May God shine upon you

And call you

Out of your troubled dreams

Out of the shadows

Of the past

Out of the misery

Of the present.

 

Pray for this

But in the meantime

Prepare yourself

By being truly honest

About your situation

Your engagements

Your involvements

And your commitments.

 

You cannot be passive

Regarding this great calling.

You must build the foundation.

You must make the effort.

You must have the courage.

You must take the risks

For this will make you strong

And powerful

In the world

And show you

Where the strength

Of your integrity

And courage

Resides.

 

This day

Hear these words

For they come

From the Source of all life.

Prepare for the Messenger in the world

For it is very likely

That you have a destiny

With him.

Understand

You are living

At a Time of Revelation

And that has a great deal to do

With what has happened

In your life

And your deeper inclinations

For the future.

Loneliness: A Health Problem That Could Be Deadlier Than Obesity, Study Says

Published

on

Loneliness can reliably be linked to a significant increase in the risk of early mortality, according to a study at Brigham Young University. Head author, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, notes that “substantial evidence now indicates that individuals lacking social connections (both objective and subjective social isolation) are at risk for premature mortality.”

Holt-Lunstad believes the risks associated with loneliness are already greater than such established dangers as obesity:

Several decades ago scientists who observed widespread dietary and behavior changes raised warnings about obesity and related health problems. The present obesity epidemic had been predicted. Obesity now receives constant coverage in the media and in public health policy. The current status of research on the risks of loneliness and social isolation is similar to that of research on obesity 3 decades ago… Current evidence indicates that heightened risk for mortality from a lack of social relationships is greater than that from obesity.

Update for our readers: This hard-hitting documentary series (2020) explores the most powerful alternative medicines known to man – all backed major scientific studies. These remedies have been kept from us because big pharma doesn’t want you to have the power to heal yourself. That ends now. Get your free spot here: 👉 collective-evolution.com/a/provendoc

Furthermore, she warns that “researchers have predicted that loneliness will reach epidemic proportions by 2030 unless action is taken.”

Why Are We So Isolated From Each Other?

From the long view, it can be said that Western civilization as a whole has fostered a gradual disintegration of our physical and social ties. With an emphasis on individual goals and an almost fanatical regard for personal achievement, the traditional institutions of family and community and their capacity to provide their members with a sense of belonging and shared purpose have become significantly fragmented.

The family unit has gone from large generations-linked mutual support systems to small and immediate units, sometimes involving single parents whose necessities make it very difficult to create a stable home environment for their children. Add to that the fact that more and more people are not even building families, and our society has more people living alone than at any other time in history. This includes the elderly, who are less likely to find a ‘fit’ living within their children’s families than ever before.

The decline of the ‘community’ is perhaps as significant as the disintegration of the family unit. In Western-style communities, people work as a collection of individual units interacting by specific functions rather than as an interrelated whole with a significant shared identity. Naturally, attempts are made today to join or build ‘communities’ all the time, but like the Meetup model, they are founded on the gathering of select people with similar interests and purposes, rather than a shared embrace of all people within a certain geographical area.

The Rise of Social Media

I believe the rise in prominence of social media has in part been fuelled by the sense of alienation we have long felt within our modern society. I don’t believe social media is the root cause of our loneliness, as some speculate, but rather a symptom of this much longer-standing social problem. Connecting via chats and web pages is just something that we have gotten into the habit of reaching for since it is so immediately accessible. But like any quick fix, it does not end up fulfilling our deeper needs, either individually or as a society.

If we see that our society has been slowly disintegrating over hundreds of years, then it becomes incumbent upon us as a society (if we can still even identify ourselves with our ‘society’) to take measures to remedy this situation. What those measures might be, though, given how things seem to be trending, is a matter of great conjecture.

On Being Alone  

One approach is to first acknowledge that Western society’s emphasis on the individual is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I believe that the development of personal integrity, creativity, and autonomy is a critical step in the evolution of human consciousness. Learning how to be alone with oneself is a part of that process. In his work entitled Pensées, French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

As evidenced by Eastern gurus and mystics, one can be perfectly content in isolation. This can be greatly facilitated by the practice of meditation and other such methods that give us a direct perception of our energetic connectedness not only with other people, but with all things. In this higher state, the damaging emotional impact of loneliness and social isolation are not experienced.

Our Next Step

Still, the life of the yogi remains for the few. The rest of us, it seems, have come to this planet to interact, share, and love. And we have not incarnated into this dense physical world to get better at virtual relationships. At this stage, we have perhaps gotten a bit too accustomed to social isolation for our own good.

Holt-Lunstad notes that “although living alone can offer conveniences and advantages for an individual, this meta-analysis indicates that physical health is not among them.” She also cites another study that “has demonstrated higher survival rates for those who are more socially connected.” And then there is the seminal 75-Year Harvard University study, where “it was universally clear that without loving and supportive relationships, men in the study were not happy.” The message is becoming clear: we need to come together.

We are perhaps at a larger turning point in our development than most of us realize. It seems that we have reached the extreme edge of the exploration of individualism, and we are readying to move into greater balance with a collective identity. This is not a return to traditional ways, but rather a synthesis of our growth as individuals with the shared experience we are now hungering for. This synthesis signifies the next stage of our evolution.

How I Induced An Out Of Body Experience Without Substances

Published

on

Can you really have an out of body experience on command? Absolutely. While this is something that will take some time to practice and get good at, there are many methods to having out of body experiences or spiritual experiences on command using only your consciousness and physical body.

There is also a purpose to these experiences; they aren’t simply to trip out (although if you wish to do that it’s up to you). These experiences can help you dissolve fears, move past trauma, expand your consciousness and much more. I personally don’t feel inspired to do anything other than explore and expand myself when I engage in experiences like this.

Many of the stories you hear of out of body experiences happen through dreams, near death experiences, from the state between sleep and awake, and when people experiment with psychedelics like magic mushrooms, DMT or ayahuasca. But we are capable of having out-of-body experiences with just our thoughts, breath and consciousness.

Why These Experiences Can Be Helpful

I say “CAN BE” helpful because they have that ability, but it doesn’t mean we always use it. We may want to explore a past trauma, and meditation or OBE’s could help us do that, but if we don’t use them for this purpose or do the work afterwards they won’t be helpful. Likewise with any substance like ayahuasca, mushrooms or DMT. They don’t do the work for you and don’t save you. You still have to do the work afterwards and it’s for this exact reason that most people who experiment with these substances or experiences still don’t make shifts in their lives because it’s still work. And it’s the work that we often aren’t willing to do that stops us from moving forward.

Your intention for wanting to have these experiences is important. Sometimes when we think about psychedelics or having out of body experiences we are seeking a trippy-like experience out of curiosity. And that’s totally fine. Curiosity can be how we explore and learn things. But while it may be fun to play a couple times, I generally say it isn’t the best motivation for wanting to have these experiences. I typically tend to encourage people to reflect on a deeper sense of exploration and growth within ourselves when it comes to exploring our consciousness, which is a big part of what we do in CE’s Explorer Lounge you can check out here.

The reason why I believe focusing on having a trippy experience is not ideal is because I have seen many people get lost in the need to just experiencing something trippy. Not only that, but it can often become an escape from the challenges we face. Which is why I feel society utilizes cannabis, alcohol, TV and food addictively.

DMT, mushrooms, Ayahuasca and so forth were initially put on this planet when we had difficult times exploring our consciousness and external tools assisted us in doing that. Today, a resurgence of these substances is taking place as people’s curiosity to explore is once again popular. After all, there is a shift in consciousness taking place.

However, I do not believe we still need these substances today in order to have these types of consciousness based experiences. While I think they can be helpful for some of us who are in difficult situations like drug addiction or have serious trauma from war or violent experiences, I feel we are all very equipped within ourselves to explore without them, and I’m personally inspired to encourage that.

Ultimately it’s not as much about any substance or experience as it is about what the end goal helps us to see – more about ourselves. They tell us to look within to find answers and move past our challenges. So many experiences in life are all pushing us to do that exact same thing, look within. Our core teaching here at Collective Evolution is change starts within. All for the reason that it’s at the core of how we will create a profound shift in our lives and on this planet. So what can we take from this?

If we know the core truth is about us looking within, why not just begin looking there right now?

How I Created my Own Out Of Body Experience

I was in California, attending Wim Hof’s retreat in Beverly Hills. It was day two and we were doing a breathing exercise that was about focusing on energy in our body and learning how to control and use it.

At the Wim Hof retreat in California.

There was a focus on utilizing it to activate our pineal gland in such a way that may or may not release a little bit of DMT in your brain, allowing us to have some form of experience that would be beyond the physical. I would like to say at this point that this is certainly not the core message of Wim’s work, nor is it something that I think the method is truly for. It’s simply something that you can use in order to obtain this result. These forms of breathing exercises are not new either, they have been used by yogi’s and “guru’s” for many years to attain different states of consciousness.

There were about 60 of us, we were in a beautiful room with 15 foot ceilings and the sun was shining in through the side windows. I was laying flat on my back on a yoga mat patiently waiting for the exercise to start. This would not be the first time I was going to have an out of body experience, but it would be the first I would attempt on command. My previous experiences came from dream-states, meditation or simply.. happening.

We began with Wim’s standard method of breathing. Heavy breaths in and out of the mouth. Stomach, chest, head, out. After about 8 minutes of this, I went into my breath holds (as part of his method) and I began to focus energy from around the base of my spine and brought it up my back, into my brain and ‘pinged’ my pineal gland with it.

As I brought the energy up into my pineal gland I felt what I had felt in the past with these types of experiences. Ringing and vibrations in my body and mind starting to increase. With my eyes closed, I began to see the room. I could feel my essence slowly leaving my body up straight into the air. It moved slowly and peacefully. It wasn’t a fast jolt or ‘uncontrollable’ in a sense, it was very light.

The pineal gland.

As I drifted upwards more and more I eventually made it to the ceiling and rested there. What happened next was what you might experience in deep meditation which is having all of your thoughts emotions set aside and you begin to feel like a massive, massive, massive presence that is so far beyond your physical body that you no longer identify with being a physical body. You begin to realize you are a vast consciousness that is pure unconditional love and pure potential.

From this state of being you have the ability to utilize your awareness to look at your life, situations, the planet or whatever it may be from a completely non-judgmental and unconditionally loving way so as to deeply understand why things happen. You gain clarity and awareness as to how you may move forward with something from this space. These experiences help us to get a glimpse at what is beyond the stories and the drama of our minds. This is VERY powerful in clearing our fears, worries, and traumas.

Back to my experience here. As I continued to feel immense at the top of the ceiling, I could see all of the bodies in the room having their own experience. I felt connected to them, the building, and everything around us. The difference between myself and everything else drifted away, and I was simply an essence or consciousness observing. This, is precisely how I know experientially that consciousness does not originate in the mind but is our existence. Mainstream science has not caught up to this understanding yet but it’s getting close, and that is very inspiring.

After what could have been 10 or so minutes, I slowly came back down into my physical body and began to integrate back into it. I opened my eyes and began to feel the desire to go outside and enjoy the sunlight. I felt slightly emotional at this point as I had gotten a glimpse of the difference between feeling fully clear outside of my body vs feeling certain emotional pains and mind stories that were in my physical body. This right here, is where the magic is. This is how we see more clearly what it is that we are being challenged by and have a reference point to compare what letting it go feels like.

Concluding Thoughts

When you are in meditation, you are able to re-tune into these types of higher states of consciousness and be an observer looking back at the challenges you face at any moment in your life. With detachment from them you can ask yourself how you created or co-created the experience you are having and what lesson is in it for you. How does it serve you? How can you move forward with action and so forth? You can see the greater workings and perfection that comes with these experiences to help you move beyond them.

So that’s pretty well it! Utilize and explore these experiences with clear intentions of evolving yourself and you will have the best results in not only creating these experiences but attaining more peace in your life. Have fun and keep exploring!

New Moon In Gemini: Adaptability & Confusion

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Gemini on May 22nd or 23rd, depending on where you are located in the world. This is initiating a 29.5-day Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month, however, its themes will be strongest over the following 2 weeks. This cycle will peak with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th/6th.

Gemini season has just begun on May 20th/21st with it’s ruler Mercury also there. As an Air sign it is socially and mentally oriented, while as a Mutable sign it is versatile, adaptable, and multi-faceted. Mutable signs are the last of each season which is a reflection of its changeable nature to help facilitate a transition from one thing to the next.

Gemini’s energy is curious, communicative, articulate, informative, agile, busy, clever, and dualistic. It has chameleon-like properties and is the sign of multiple expressions or personalities. Gemini is associated with information, learning, writing, commuting, immediate environment, neighbours/neighbourhood, siblings, close friends, and extended family. Negatively, it can be gossipy, superficial, inconsistent, scattered, two faced, unfocused, and lack emotion.

Venus is currently retrograde in Gemini and the Lunar North Node also recently entered this sign. All of this puts an exclamation mark on Gemini themes at this time. The North Node will be there until early 2022 which reflects a push towards working with Gemini energies in a positively constructive way. Much of this process is getting emphasized over this next month. You can read more about Venus retrograde here.

New Moon Trine Saturn, Sextile Chiron, & Square Mars With Uranus In The Mix

This New Moon is in a tight trine with Saturn in Aquarius and sextile with Chiron. In comparison to previous months, these upcoming weeks can have more of a stabilizing energy. This can be good for applying ourselves in a disciplined, realistic, and committed way.

The sextile to Chiron gives us a small dose of its themes. Chiron is associated with healing, wholeness, cleansing, spiritual growth, innovative ideas, and discovery. It is holistic, bridging, creative, and unorthodox. This energy will also come up May 27th-28th/29th.

The New Moon is also in a square with Mars in Pisces which is moving towards a sextile with Uranus. This in combination with all the Gemini can bring restlessness and scatteredness. It can also be competitive, impulsive, and combative. Following the New Moon period, this energy will build up in the coming weeks and peak at the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.

Mars is moving towards a sextile with Uranus which is strongest from May 24th-25th/26th. This is good for making changes or trying new things. We may want to apply ourselves in unique, experimental, or revolutionary ways. Pursuing some sort of independence or freedom is another way this energy can be expressed.

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde, Both Square Neptune & Out Of Bounds

The ruler of Gemini, Mercury, is in a conjunction with Venus retrograde which are both in Gemini as well. This is one of the more significant periods of the Venus retrograde and can facilitate some realizations or issues that are part of the retrograde process.  Thoughts or issues pertaining to relationships, values, money, art, or something aesthetic related can be prominent.

However, with both of them in a square to Neptune there can be some confusion, idealism, misunderstandings, flakiness, delusion, disappointments, or problems around boundaries. Issues pertaining to escapism or intoxication can come up and this can be a time of feeling tired and lethargic. In some cases this energy can be creatively or spiritually stimulating. This is strongest on the day of and days surrounding the New Moon.

Both Mercury and Venus are ‘Out of Bounds’. This is when planets move outside of the boundaries in which the Sun travels in, from our perspective on Earth. It is about exploring new territory as well as going outside of our usual limitations and conventional ways of doing things. This can also reflect seeing things from a different perspective and objective thinking.

Mercury, the planet of the mind, perceptions, reason, communication, commuting, and commerce has been out of bounds since May 16th until June 9th/10th. Venus, the planet of love, relationships, social life, values, money, beauty, art, and aesthetics, has been out of bounds since April 1st until June 1st.

Approaching Eclipse Season 

In the two weeks after this New Moon we will have a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th/6th followed by a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on June 21st and another Lunar Eclipse in July. They are happening during Venus’ retrograde and post shadow, and will also overlap with an upcoming Mercury retrograde.

All of this combined shows that these coming months are a time of transitions, changes, and reorientations. Eclipses can reflect beginnings, endings, and even evolutionary developments pertaining to the sign it is in and in specific areas in each of our lives. However, their effects don’t always play out when they are occurring. They can also manifest sometime in the 6 months following and in some cases up to 6 weeks prior.

I will be writing separate articles on these eclipses, join my mailing list here to ensure that you are notified when they are published.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What has been coming up for you around love or regarding friendships? What are relationship dynamics showing you and in what ways do you lack clarity? How can you better communicate and harmonize how you interact with others? What are you learning about/through the information you are consuming and does it truly make sense for you? How can you better adapt to the circumstances in your life? What are your options for handling financial matters?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 5:39pm Universal Time on May 22nd, or the 23rd for those in the Eastern part of the world. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
