fireloveMany popular spiritual teachings tell us that life is all about love or fear. We are taught that every thought, word, and action is driven by a feeling based on either love or fear, so naturally we should learn to overcome fear and become more loving if we want a better life experience. This rather simple idea seems like a profound realization if you spend some time with it, but is this really true in all cases? Can everything be so neatly categorized and explained as love or fear, particularly when trying to understand the greater realities of life in the universe? Is this really the end-all teaching that we should base our entire understanding of life on? While this idea certainly seems to be true and applicable in many cases, I believe there is more to be explored and understood regarding this dichotomy that can really help us see the bigger picture with more clarity.

For example, two people may have very different ideas and beliefs about what constitutes “love”. It seems that love is one of the most overused and misunderstood qualities and essences in the world, yet it is something we all desire and need to survive. After all, what is love really? Can it be defined? Are all of our “good” feelings really based in love? How do we distinguish love from fear and are emotions really the definitive guide in determining this difference? Isn’t fear useful for warning us about impending dangers that threaten us in some way, such as getting hit by a bus or something else unexpected?  I believe these are all important questions to ask ourselves as we continue to expand our awareness and understandings of the world we live in.

“Around the world love is held to be in the highest esteem, as a pinnacle of human experience. Love is sung about in songs, written about in poetry. It is exalted in great literature. It is bandied about in normal conversation. People claim they are in love, that love is the ultimate, that all you need in the world is love and everything will work out just fine. But very few people understand what love really is. And very few people have experienced love at a deeper level—beyond fascination, beyond infatuation and attachment. Few people have experienced the real power and current of love.” — The New Message Wiki on Love

Since the love and fear relationship is so prevalent in the awakening communities around the world, I would like to share with you a New Message perspective on these issues. Reading and studying the New Message has really transformed my life, as I am learning to face reality with more objectivity and discernment than ever before. These messages have really challenged me in many ways, especially regarding my naive and idealistic assumptions and beliefs about life that I was holding onto previously. Re-examining these beliefs and realizing that I truly didn’t know all the answers has ultimately helped me develop more integrity, humility, discretion, and the cultivation of my inner Knowledge. They are the only series of teachings that I have found that directly address some of the biggest threats and problems facing humanity now and in the future.

Of particular concern is the extraterrestrial intervention that is taking place in secrecy, unbeknownst to the majority of the world, which is seeking to take advantage of humanity in every conceivable way, keeping us locked in conflict, division, and ultimately enslavement. Our emergence into the Greater Community of life in the physical universe is happening now and is something that requires a special kind of education that can only come from beyond the world. The stakes are very high this time around and I genuinely wish that all of us begin to take these issues seriously and realize the predicaments that we are in. This will give us the impetus to bring us out of our slumber and into our greatness, as we are here to serve the world and humanity at large, each contributing in our own unique ways for the highest good of all.

May we continue to come together as a human family with integrity, strength, wisdom, and compassion as we face the challenging times ahead.  Thank you for letting me share.

Love and Fear

As revealed to
Marshall Vian Summers
on April 11, 2001
in Boulder, Colorado

At this point it is important to address the reality of love and fear. The Greater Darkness upon the world can incite tremendous fear, particularly as you learn what it really is and how it is functioning in the world with very little human awareness or resistance. Some people will think that they cannot accept the New Message because it seems fearful, because they think that it does not come from a place of love. But it absolutely comes from a place of love, for God loves humanity and does not want to see you lose your freedom and become enslaved by other forces in the Greater Community.

Here you must remember that the physical universe in which you live is not your Ancient Home. It is a relative reality because it is a reality that is changing constantly. God watches over the physical universe, but God rarely intervenes directly except to deliver essential Messages such as the one that is being presented here.

People are very confused about this issue of reality. Some people think that spiritual reality and physical reality are the same, and they try to apply their spiritual understanding to the physical world. Others think that there is no spiritual reality, that there is only the world. However, neither of these evaluations is correct.

In physical life, there is competition in nature. This is part of nature. This is the natural world you live in. This competition exists throughout the Greater Community as well. In the Greater Community, there are races that are spiritually advanced and aware, and there are many races that are not. Some are technologically advanced, and some are not. There are powerful commercial forces in this part of the galaxy in which you live. They seek to take advantage of new biological and mineral discoveries. They seek to take advantage of emerging worlds such as your own. They are not spiritually advanced, or they would not be behaving in such a self-serving way.

These forces are living in a relative reality, as are you. But this is your reality only while you are in the world. You are here in the world ultimately to make a contribution to this reality, to help the well-being and the spiritual development of people everywhere.

It is no different in the Greater Community. There are forces that speak for the good, and there are forces that work against it. There are no neutral forces in the universe. Everyone is either helping or hindering this great redemption, this great process of renewing and reinvigorating spiritual reality. Or, said in other words, everyone is either helping or hindering the return to the Creator. It is necessary to speak in very large terms here because you need to see things in this way, for this will bring great clarity to your understanding. This will enable you to recognize the forces that support humanity’s freedom and those that oppose it.

Fear serves only one beneficial purpose and that is to alert you to the presence of danger. This kind of fear is part of your natural makeup. It is there to protect your well-being and to give you an awareness of those elements in your natural environment, the physical world, that could threaten this well-being. Yet most of the fear that plagues people is the product of their imagination. It is something that they create for themselves. It is not grounded in reality. Though you can see evidence of terrible things in your physical reality, the fears that drive people are largely the product of their imagination. These are purely destructive fears.

Love is the emanation of Knowledge within you, Knowledge being your spiritual reality and intelligence. But even the manifestations of love may not always seem to be kind, gentle or reassuring, for love sometimes must challenge you. Love sometimes must correct you, and love sometimes must redirect your actions. People have a very romantic view of love, but this is not really what love is. If you could see that the Creator is being loving by alerting you to the realities of the Intervention and by attempting to prepare you for your future in the Greater Community, you would see this expression of love very clearly. Then you would not have a conflict regarding love and fear. You would see the fear that disables you, the fear that weakens you, the fear that tells you that you are pathetic and cannot really establish a position of power and responsibility in the world. Love brings out fear. It reveals fear. It transforms fear.

When people become aware of the Greater Darkness in the world, their first reaction may be fear. Part of this fear is their natural fear, being aware of danger. But much of this fear will be their imagination and what they think it means, and this fear will disable them.

While your natural fear is cautionary, your imaginary fear is purely destructive. Reality will bring out this destructive fear. What will replace this fear is a kind of love that is aware, that is present, and that is responsible. It is not the kind of love that makes you feel passive and reassured. That is not really what love is. Love is not thinking that everything is going to be fine and that God is taking care of everything. Indeed, God has sent you here to take care of everything! Love is a position of self-acceptance, responsibility, cooperation and contribution. That is love. It is clear. It is sober. And it is able to face whatever life brings across its path. Love treats every difficulty as an opportunity. It does not deny the realities of life. It does not seek to gain personal advantage by denying reality. It does not seek to put a happy face on every event of life. This is love. This is God’s love.

Some people believe that God’s love is like an aphrodisiac. They think that it will make you forget everything else and put you into some kind of ecstatic state. The only real ecstasy is to be grounded in God’s love because this gives you all the inner security you could ever need. But it also gives you the responsibility to contribute to a world in need. Here there is no confusion between physical life and your Ancient Home. Here you are grounded spiritually but are learning to be effective in the natural world. Here you will see that God’s New Message is an unparalleled gift. Here you will see that the Intervention, though grave and serious and unlike anything humanity has ever faced before, can in itself give humanity the foundation to unite itself on its own behalf.

In the Greater Community, the physical universe in which you live, the strong will dominate the weak if they can. This is a reality of life in the physical realm. You see this in nature all around you. The evolution of species and the competition for environment are fundamental to the natural world you live in. To be in denial of this is to deny the natural world, the reality of your body and the reality of your being in the world. Yet there are many people in the world today who deny this reality because they are afraid. As a result, they cannot see that the physical world and the heavenly state are two entirely different realities. Each must be responded to differently.

The spiritual reality lives within you, in your Knowledge. This is the reality that the Creator has given you. You have it already. This is the source of real love, compassion and contribution. Knowledge within you does not seek escape. It does not try to deceive itself into thinking that everything is wonderful. It does not claim that God is taking care of everything for you, as if you were a helpless child. Knowledge within you is here on a mission. It is here to contribute. It is here to face the world as it is and to contribute to it and to improve it so that the possibilities for greater spiritual awareness may be cultivated here.

In the Greater Community into which you are emerging, technologically advanced races are rarely spiritually advanced. Those who seek to explore and to exploit other nations are not the spiritually advanced. You can understand this. It is no different in the Greater Community than it is here in your world. The question is whether you can accept it.

Love will always encourage you to face reality and to meet its challenges and its opportunities. Fear will always take you away from reality because you are afraid for yourself— afraid your ideas may be wrong, afraid your security may be challenged, afraid that you will not know what to do, afraid that you will be helpless, afraid that you will be dominated and afraid that you will fail. Love will take you to meet these challenges. Fear will take you away. Love will face the Intervention. Fear will deny it. Love will receive the New Message from God. Fear will dispute it.

God must give you this real understanding of love and fear or you will become very confused. Fear is always the basis of preference in these matters. You deny reality because you want something else. Perhaps you don’t want your personal goals to be upset by the realities of life, and so you will deny those realities. Perhaps you want the universe to be a place full of enlightened beings so that you won’t have to be challenged.

Already the Intervention that is in the world is preying upon these preferences and these fears, encouraging people to think that the Intervention is here for their good, if people are aware of it at all. There are people in the world today who are driven by fear, and they will naturally be receptive to such persuasion, for their own personal advantage of course.

Who in the world really wants an Intervention? Most people do not want an Intervention, but an Intervention is what is happening. It is a reality of life. If you can face it, then love will become stronger. If you deny it, then fear will become stronger. God can only speak to that part of you that is capable of real love. The Intervention can only speak to that part of you that is already afraid.

It is possible that those who are intervening in the world can be redeemed through Knowledge, but that is God’s work and not yours. Your work here now is to preserve human freedom and to establish yourselves in the universe as a free and independent race. If you fail, then all that humanity has accomplished will be lost. All of the teaching, all of the true spiritual understanding, all of the art, all of the culture, all of your advancements can be lost. Impossible, you say? Well, think of all the human civilizations that have disappeared from your world. All that they established is lost, leaving only a few traces.

You have the possibility now to establish a greater foundation for humanity, a Greater Community understanding and awareness, a real unity and cooperation based upon real need and necessity. If you shrink from this, then you are following fear. If you shrink from this, then you are serving the Intervention, either knowingly or unknowingly. Establishing this foundation is a great challenge. The problem is not that the truth is difficult to comprehend; the problem is, do people really want it? It is not that life is too difficult; the question is, can people face it, rise above it and use it to gain greater maturity, greater equanimity and greater power? The gift of God’s New Message is pure. Can it be purely received? That is the real question.

The Intervention itself is a gift in that it can unite humanity in its own defense. Yet it is only a gift if you can receive the New Message from God because you cannot prepare yourself for the Intervention. From your vantage point, you cannot understand what life is like beyond your borders, what has prompted the Intervention, how it is functioning or the nature and organization of those who are generating it. For this, you need a greater awareness. You need a New Message from God.

Therefore, come to realize what love really is within you. Love affirms your strength, your integrity, your responsibility, your honor, your courage and your contribution to others. It encourages selfless participation in the world. Love is the essence of your strength. It is not sentimental. It is not like the ridiculous romantic images that people have generated to describe it. It is not a source of personal avoidance or irresponsibility.

What is fear? Fear is the belief that you are powerless and that you can do nothing. Fear is what prompts you to give yourself to your preferences and to your compulsions. Fear is what keeps you weak. Fear keeps you from responding to the real needs of the world and disables you from doing what you know you have to do for yourself. Fear prevents you from serving others in a real and genuine way.

Both love and fear are pervasive within your world. But people are still confused. The Intervention will speak to your fear. God’s New Message will speak to your love. Yet in order for you to see this, you must deeply consider these things. You must face the great challenge of your time and be willing to see the relevance of the answer that God has given.

Being in the world, by its very nature, is a compromised state of awareness. Your personal self wants to survive. It is afraid of death and does not want to suffer. And yet you cannot destroy what God has created within you. You can lose sight of it. You can avoid it. You can deny it. You can believe it does not exist. But it is still real within you. It is permanent. It cannot be destroyed. It can only be rejected. And now it is being called for as never before.

When you begin to recognize that there is a Greater Darkness in the world, when you see that this can take from you everything that you have and everything that humanity has gained and developed throughout its entire history, you will begin to really understand what you are facing. Perhaps you will lose faith in yourself, thinking, “What can I possibly do? It’s already too late!” It is not too late. If it were too late, God would not give a New Message to the world. It would be over.

However, it is not over, except perhaps in your imagination. It is just beginning. The Intervention is the greatest challenge that humanity has ever faced. Yet it can give humanity its greatest opportunity to become strong and united. No one in the world will have any advantage facing the Intervention alone. Even those individuals who are recruited to serve the Intervention will have no real advantage here.

It is only by meeting a greater challenge in life that humanity can override and surmount its longstanding conflicts. This challenge is not momentary. It will be ongoing, for you live in a beautiful world that is greatly valued by others. You live in a world that is rich in mineral and biological resources—a gem in the universe. Such places are far more rare than you may realize. Other nations in the universe that have outstripped their world’s resources must now trade and barter for what they need. They must seek and explore for what they need. You are living on what is considered by others to be a paradise island in the universe. Yet you do not know what you have and you are ruining it.

Only a real Greater Community awareness will change this. With this awareness, you would not squander such a place. You would not ruin the world if you realized what is really at stake here. Many people think the universe is just a big empty place that humanity will go out and colonize for its own benefit. Be assured that is not the case.

The situation has become very grave. However, humanity has the power to stop the Intervention. To do this, it must gain a greater cooperation. To do this, enough people must respond. This response must be born of love and not of fear. Serving the real needs of humanity, even in the face of great danger, is an act of profound love and selflessness. Let this be your understanding.

Even the Creator is concerned that humanity may fail. This concern is born of love. As a parent is concerned for the well-being of his or her child, this concern is born of love. Do not repudiate this concern, thinking that it is negative or that it is unjustified. Indeed, the New Message from God affirms that behind all of the manifestations of life in the physical universe, there is the great love and compassion of the Creator for what has been created.

You cannot fully understand God’s great love at the outset, for gaining this understanding represents a journey, a journey with many steps. You must begin from where you are. Here you are saved from your own personal predicament because God has given you a greater problem to address and a greater set of needs to meet within the world. Here you are saved from your hopeless attempt to fulfill yourself alone by being given something that can truly serve the world.

There is no fulfillment in personal fulfillment. If you seek happiness only, you will compromise yourself and you will follow fear. You will deny reality, and you will turn away from the great needs of the world that are calling for you. Even the great needs that you are meant to serve, that you are sent here to serve, you will deny in order to try to fulfill your own agenda. You may try to fulfill what you think you want, but your heart will only be fulfilled by doing what you came here to do.

Why Hugging Is Powerful: Especially When We’re So Isolated

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

When’s the last time you had a good hug? Can you even recall a time when one lasted longer than 10 or 15 seconds? Hugging releases oxytocin, a bonding hormone, as well as serotonin and endorphins. These hormones are a big part of what makes us feel good and build a sense of community and connection with others.

When we hug our friends or family, or even spend a good few hours with them, we often don’t know what exactly the mechanism is that makes us feel good, but often times it’s touch, eye contact and reading facial expressions.

Throughout COVID, once we got a sense of what it feels like to not have as much touch, see smiles, see our friends or family, we might have gained a greater awareness of how important this really is. Intense isolation, like we’ve all experienced, leads to touch deprivation, and one could argue, has led to collective traumatization throughout the course of this pandemic.

Humans biologically need touch, it’s built right into our physiology. When we are babies, touch is a crucial part of our ability to regulate our nervous systems and feel safe. When we’re very young, our bodies have not yet built the ability to self-regulate (feel safety and comfort), and thus our caregivers play the important role of not only touching to bring regulation and safety, but also using facial expressions to send the message that ‘all is OK.’

Further, humans thrive in a sense of community and connection. When we are too isolated, without a deep and dedicated practice like monk’s might do in a cave in Tibet, we begin to lose the benefits of co-regulation, and in turn our psychology can begin to suffer over time. Humans have built incredible things – together – when in community, and touch plays an important role in that.

It most cultures around the world, hugging is part of daily life. Other cultures might decide to greet one another with cheek kissing instead, but touch is often a common denominator. But it’s true, there are places that may be ‘less touch-y’ and will certainly find other ways to connect.

One thing I can say though, especially during this unprecedented time of isolation, make it a point to hug those close to you when you can. Make it a good one, 15 or 20 seconds! Pay attention to how you feel after.

As mentioned, hugging is not the only way we get a sense of co-regulation and connection. Looking into one another’s eyes, sensing facial movements and reactions are also important. We have millions of mirror neurons in our brains that are constantly reading what is happening in another person, and sending information to areas of our brain, subconsciously, that tell us how a person might be feeling, for example. When we witness someone taking an action, neurons in our brains respond to that action in the same way as if we were taking that action ourselves – hence ‘mirror neurons.’

This might mean that when we watch a nervous moment in sports for example, although we are not playing, we might take actions like covering our mouths or holding our chest, feeling the nerves the players are likely feeling. As you can imagine, this is not a perfect science. Sometimes we are nervous but the player is cool as a cucumber, but generally, mirror neurons tend to help us connect to what others are feeling or doing, giving us a sense of empathy.

It goes even deeper. Research from Institute of HeartMath has shown that the human heart emits a measurable electromagnetic field that contains information other people can pick up on and decode in their brains. Regardless of how ‘new-agey’ this might sound to some minds, it’s a reality of our physical bodies.

Just think, have you ever walked into a room with multiple people in it and noticed the energy of it? Perhaps you noticed right away it was very tense or very jovial. This sense likely comes from having an awareness of how our electro magnetic field is interacting with the collective field of the room.

What you’re feeling is how someone’s general emotional state is affecting the field they emit. The more we feel tension, anxiety, or depression for example, the more we also put that signal out into our communities. Now, this isn’t a call to get stressed out about how we’re affecting others, this is simply a realization of what’s going on.

In our current chaotic world, it’s quite common to feel anxious or uncertain about what’s happening, and acknowledging that is OK is perfectly fine. The next question becomes: how can I manage my emotional state and create a a felt sense of calm? (Which of course will change the field you emit as well.)

Managing Our Emotions & Energy

One very simple option is written at the top of the article we post here on The Pulse. It’s a simple technique I adapted from my training at HeartMath, but I added in my own flair learned from my trauma specialist training as I felt a greater focus on interception, our awareness of sensations in our body, was important to be in the mix.

As go move through your day, stop, take a breath and release the tension in your body starting from your head all the way down to your feet. Take a few moments on each muscle group if you like. Place attention on your physical heart and breathe slowly into the area for 60 seconds, focusing on feeling a sense of ease.

I wrote a much more in-depth article here, where I share more detailed steps and how this helps improve our overall energy levels as well.

Our bodies are filled with tools that sense anything from obvious to ‘unseen’ signals coming from others and our environment. These tools suggest we are beings of connection, and we thrive when we get enough of it. They also suggest it’s important to pay attention to more than just the material aspect of our world, as there is much that needs to be ‘taken care of’ in the ‘unseen.’ By that, I mean, as we manage our emotions and regulate our nervous system’s, our felt electro magnetic field communicates a different message to others out there.

Full Moon In Aquarius: Rationality & Seriousness

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23rd/24th. It will appear the brightest on the night of the 23rd throughout most of the world and on the night of the 24th in the time zones East of Japan. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began with a New Moon in Cancer on July 9th/10th.

The energies of a Full Moon are strongest in the days surrounding it yet its astrological configurations also play a part over the following two weeks. You may start to see its themes slowly build up after the New Moon prior.

This is a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. It can play out as either a conflict, an integration, or some sort of dynamic between the energies of both signs. The Moon reflects the expression of feeling and emotion while the Sun reflects the expression of ego and conscious self.

We may 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 Aquarius side and others expressing the Leo side. In some cases, Full Moons can also reflect/trigger some sort of change or release.

Full Moon In Aquarius Opposite Sun In Leo

Leo season began 36 hours before the Full Moon and will continue until August 22nd/23rd. This is the sign of 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 boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that.

The Full Moon highlights and brings the energies of the opposing sign of Aquarius into this Leo backdrop. This is the sign of friends, networks, social dynamics, social issues, groups, teams, humanity, and being in the best interest of the collective. This energy is unconventional, idealistic, innovative, progressive, scientific, original, inventive, technological, reforming, and even revolutionary.

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.

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 attributes while in Leo it comes from being inspired by its heart centred self-expression.

Full Moon Quincunx Venus, Conjunct Saturn, & Square Uranus

This Full Moon is in a quincunx with Venus which has recently entered Virgo. Our feelings, emotions, needs, or domestic lives may be at odds with friendships, values, finances, pleasure, or matters of love. It can be hard to integrate these areas but being flexible and making adjustments can be the solution.

The Full Moon is moving towards Saturn in the same sign. This can reflect a serious energy and we may be faced with limitations, restrictions, delays, or obstacles. We or others may be emotionally distant, pessimistic, or reserved. However, this can be good for some sort of effort that requires discipline, structure, and orderliness. After the Full Moon period, some of these energies will be strong again on August 1st/2nd.

Following the conjunction with Saturn, the Moon forms a square aspect with the disruptive Uranus in Taurus. This is activating the square between Saturn and Uranus that is happening throughout the year which I’ve covered in previous articles. Themes around ‘old versus new’, ‘restrictions versus freedom’, ‘the status quo versus revolution’, ‘commitments/responsibilities versus liberation’, ‘elder versus youth’, ‘progressiveness versus tradition’ and so forth.

Jupiter Going Back Into Aquarius

Jupiter entered its home sign of Pisces in mid-May for a short stint as it is returning back into Aquarius on July 28th/29th. The planet of expansion, freedom, beliefs, perspective, education, is unrestrained in Pisces and gets to express itself more ideally in this sign. We have seen examples of this as many jurisdictions loosened up covid related restrictions during this period.

With it going back into Aquarius, a traditionally Saturn ruled sign with Saturn currently present there, Jupiter will be more inhibited until late December when it re-enters Pisces again. It’s possible that during this 5 month period may experience more restrictive measures return or new ones implemented. We may also experience this in different ways in our personal lives such as not being able to expand the way we’d like to. However, this might not be noticeable immediately.

The combination of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius (which began last December) can be good for building towards something or planting seeds pertaining to some sort of technological integration, social networking, collective or social pursuits, activism, new scientific approaches to things, and innovation.

Venus Square Lunar Nodes, Mars Opposite Jupiter

Venus will be in a square with the Lunar Nodes which will be strong from July 28th-30th. We may be reflecting on the past and future, or perhaps at a crossroads, when it comes to friendships, love, values, or financial matters. We may need to complete something and address what is holding us back  to help us move on and take a step forward in an evolutionary way when it comes to these areas of life. Venus is in Virgo so therefore discernment, details, practicality, health, organization, or efficiency may be key.

At this time Mars will be switching from Leo to Virgo while in an opposition to Jupiter. We may begin to feel the need to apply ourselves in a way that is more productive, sustainable, healthy, and clean. However, we can overextend ourselves and take on more than we can handle. This can also play out as conflicts around beliefs, perspectives, opinions, or judgements.

Mercury’s Superior Conjunction

Mercury will be in its Superior Conjunction on August 1st/2nd which is in an important phase of Mercury’s cycle with the Sun. From this point onward we may have a better perception around certain things that were seeded or occurred in the previous two months which may also help our momentum forward. .

Circumstances and developments that happen at this time can help us gain more clarity or facilitate necessary realizations to help us make the right decisions and appropriate mental focus. During this conjunction, the Sun and Mercury will be opposing Saturn which can play out as hindrances or the need to be pragmatic as part of this process.

Things To Consider

How can you balance or integrate 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 areas of your life do you need to be more orderly, structured, disciplined, or take more seriously? Is there anything that you need to separate from? How can you apply yourself in a more noble way?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up or ways to approach 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, it is best to do so after it begins to wane following the peak or during the two weeks afterwards when it is waning before the next New Moon. The exact peak of this Full Moon is at 2:37am Universal Time on July 24th, night of the 23rd. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

In this video I explore how to look in our minds and bodies for resistance towards new solutions and ideas. If we are to create a more thriving world, what has to happen within us? How do we use new and emerging solutions in a pure form, without applying the old dominance or capitalistic stories to them?

It can, very understandably, be hard to imagine something different than what we’re doing now. Especially when we consider we don’t know HOW things would change or what will happen to the current life we’ve built.

What if real global solutions involve shifting our long term plans? How do we gain a sense of comfort and stability in challenges we seek to solve at their core?
