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.

This Full Moon occurs today on March 5th at 1:05pm (EST). It is in Virgo, the sign of self-care, details, health, organizing, discernment, perfection, service, work, and the details of life. Virgo is an Earth sign, and is very much orientated around reality in the physical world. It is opposite the Sun in Pisces (which has been there for the last 2 weeks),  a more mystical and spiritual sign. It is a dreamer and more tuned in to the unconscious. Pisces also is a creative and right brained energy which can also be elusive, while Virgo is more linear and matter of fact. At this Full Moon, these two energies are in a tug-of-war with each other. This period could be a time to turn your dreams into something real and tangible. It could also mean discerning or releasing anything that seems unrealistic or delusional.

For some people, it could also be a great time for healing, especially because of the other planets involvement in this Full Moon. With this energy, It’s important to employ physical healing techniques in balance with the spiritual ones. Often, spiritually orientated people tend to mainly gravitate towards spiritual or energy healing modalities (such as Reiki) but unless we use other methods that work on a physical level, then the spiritual healing will have limited results and will not be fully embodied. This Full Moon (and the next 2 weeks) is a good time to do any type of physical cleansing, detox, and  physical techniques to help with spiritual healing. Modalities and exercises that help to release old traumas and patterns can also be very helpful such as Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, or the revolutionary Trauma Release Exercises. It would be wise to be open to anything else that is presented to you at this time which helps in this way.

By the end of the month, after the Sun goes into Aries, many of us may find ourselves busier with new initiatives. You may want to take this time over the next few weeks to organize, clean, clear and prepare for a more action orientated time period. It is a good time to get a head start on your spring cleaning and try to have it all done before the next New Moon and Equinox on March 20th. It is also a good time to use Feng Shui to optimize productivity in your workspace and home. The Virgo-Pisces axis is excellent for this approach.

Other aspects over the next few weeks suggest that this could be a time of significant changes that allow us to really move forward in our lives, but we always need to release or transform the things that are getting in our way which could be some of the things described above. Pisces is the sign of escapism, and for anyone who has escapist tendencies, this Full Moon and is an opportunity to transform this into productivity in the real world. Challenge yourself into new productive habits and routines.

 

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn…The Final Square Off

advertisement - learn more

As a collective, we have been experiencing tense energies since June 2012, thanks to the interplay between Uranus and Pluto. The geometric angle these two planets have manifested into global protests, uprisings, increased activism, political reforms, countries going bankrupt, new currencies getting the spotlight, and much more. An increasing amount of people are getting fed up by the conditions that have been set-up by hierarchy, Protestbanks, politicians, racist police, corporations, Monsanto, as well as Oil and dirty energy industries, etc. Uranus is known as the ‘awakener’, and in Aries it is rebellious. It also rules technology. Pluto is a transformer but also represents those in power who control and manipulate us. It is in the sign of Capricorn which rules monetary structures (such as banking, currency) but also rules governments, corporations, and other structures in place that have sort of managing effect in the world at large. During this time, people have been waking up and challenging these power structures, and technology has been a valuable asset to this cause. This month, we will experience the final tense square off between these two planets which will be exactly on March 16th, but can be felt in the weeks leading up this date and afterwards.

In our personal lives many people have been experiencing similar effects. We may be challenging outdated structures that go against our personal freedom and individuality. Depending on how these planets are affecting you individually, many people may have had flare ups with employers, parents, authorities, and those who hold traditional limiting views that try to inhibit your freedom, individuality and self-expression. One thing I’ve definitely noticed over the last 3 years is the vast amounts of people attempting to become self-employed by using the internet and technology. We are in a time now where technological advancements are allowing us to make a living by doing something that truly reflects our unique self expression. However, I’m saying all of this loosely because it really depends on how these planets are affecting you as an individual which can be determined by identifying Uranus and Pluto’s positions in relation to your natal astrology chart. As this Uranus-Pluto theme concludes this month, we will see some more events and circumstance occur (big or small, and on an individual and global level) with the themes described above. However, although the final peak of this energy will conclude over the next month, it will still be lingering more subtlety until the rest of the year. Also, Pluto will be in Capricorn until the year 2023, so we will continue to experience transformations in government, corporate, and banking structures until then. To put this into perspective, the last time Pluto was in Capricorn the United States became a country which became the dominant governing country and currency during the following 248 year orbit of Pluto. So, by the time we reach 2023, expect to see some new structures established which will be pivotal for the next 248 years. It is believed by conspiracy theorists that those in control would like to create a global government sometimes referred to as the ‘New World Order’. However, with the input and activism of the people and the collective, we can use this period to create our own structures that favour everyone.

Horoscopes for March 5th until March 19th

*Note: These are generalized Sun sign horoscopes and should be taken lightly. The most accurate way to do a horoscope is when an astrologer uses a person’s natal birth chart which requires the exact birth date, time, and location of birth. For more information on doing a detailed horoscope, click on my website link below in my bio.

Aries: This Full Moon emphasizes the need to focus on the details, work, health, and your day-to-day routines. With the changes you make, it can be beneficial and even transformative in your career. You may catch the attention in a positive way from your employers or those who have authority over you. Or you feel the need to make necessary changes in your life to help you change your career path. You have a lot of energy and it would be beneficial to look for an outlet, such as implementing a new exercise routine or any type of sport. Also, you may feel really anxious especially from March 10-17 as their is a possibility that you may feel the need to suddenly rebel against those in power over you. Also be extra careful from March 10-12 as there is a higher risk of accident or injury. Don’t let your irritability get the best of you.

Taurus: This Full Moon highlights your love life, fun, creativity, and children. Some Taurus folk may even want to get involved in a team orientated sport. This is a good period for deepening your ‘big picture’ perspective and philosophical beliefs. This an excellent time to use your creativity in powerful ways and especially for those who are teachers, writers, or work in marketing fields. If you are in a relationship this can be an extra fun and exciting time. If you are not in a relationship, then there is a chance that a new potential lover might be in the picture. If this is the case, it would be wise not to get too attached. A new love interest can be expansive for you on a spiritual or philosophical level, but probably won’t be long lasting. Just have fun with it!

Gemini: This Full Moon highlights your home and family. It is a good time to organize around the house and even start your spring cleaning. Renovations, upgrades, or moving to a new home can also be a theme. Their could also be some positive developments around your shared resources with your family or with those you live with. This Full Moon can be a bit tougher for those born between June 2nd – 8th, as you can be tested or challenged, but its effects largely depend on the dynamics of your natal chart. From March 11th – 12th, you may have issues with coworkers or peers. For those of you who are activists, you may find yourself busy in this regard between March 11th – 17th. It would be a great time to spread whatever message that you’d like to share.

Cancer: This Full Moon is a time to communicate how you feel to those closest to you about things that need to be changed in your relationships with them. It could be with your lover, a partner, siblings, or even neighbours or those in your community. You may see that things are not as good as they can be and you are looking to sort that out. Others way look at you as being nitpicky and you may butt heads with them over their opinions. However, the end result can be significant positive change. From March 10th -12th you may want to try new or unconventional things in your career, or you their may be sudden changes that occur beyond your control. Either way it plays out, you will likely gain from it in a positive and expansive way. Between March 10th-17th there is also a possibility that you rebel against those who try to manipulate or exert power over you.

Leo: This Full Moon highlights your values, money, resources, and self-worth. This can be a good time to do your taxes or get everything ready and organized in preparation for your taxes. You may also want to implement new health regimens, let go of bad habits, and/or change your  routine to help boost your self-esteem. You may also want to change your job in order to improve your income which could also boost your self-worth. If that is the case, then the best time to send out resumes will be March 9th – 10th. If you are self-employed then you could use those same dates to market yourself and your business to help you in boosting your income. However, you may not get the stability you are looking for until March 17th and in the weeks following. Also, from March 11th-17th, your spiritual, philosophical, and big picture perspective may undergo some radical changes that could influence the line of work you want or the need to change your lifestyle.

Virgo: This Full Moon is in your sign, so you will especially feel it. Your emotional sensitivity will be heightened at this time and you may feel the need to contemplate how everything is going in your life. It can be a time of profound insights around changes that need to be made in your relationships, and especially your love life. If you have been self-sacrificing in your relationships this can be a time where it can be addressed, especially with anything related to shared resources. This Full Moon is a time to consider what is important for you and your self-identity. Their could be positive developments and/or sudden changes around money or investments from March 9th – 11th. There will be tension and intense energies in the from March 11th – 17th and for you it could manifest in your love life. If you are not in a relationship then it could be a time where you need to face your fears of being in one. From March 12th and for the following 2.5 weeks, it could be a time where you could be of great service to others.

Libra: This Full Moon is a stimulative time for your creativity and imagination. You could also gain inspiration through your dreams. However, for many Libras this will be a social time and your creativity and inspiration can be stimulated through your friends and network, or tied into your social life some other way. Your network can expand very much, especially from March 9th-10th.  It is also a good time to make positive changes in your home, and the Libra approach to that is making it more aesthetically pleasing. You may even want to do this by making your space more conductive of positive spiritual energies by using feng shui, crystals, or anything else that comes to mind. If you are in a relationship, there could be sudden changes and/or tension from March 11th – 17th, but in some cases it can also be an exciting time. Either way it could be transformative period, even if no relationship is involved. If a new love interest comes into your life suddenly it can have a powerful effect on you. If thats the case, it likely won’t be long lasting and could be ultimately problematic.

Scorpio: This Full Moon highlights your work, social life, groups involved with, co-workers, peers, and social causes. It is a good time to think about how you could contribute your creative energy to your work as well as the collective and for some Scorpios, how it could  be of service to humanity. Conversations with others can prove to stimulating and transforming. Your words can even have a powerful effect on others with your depth. This is a period where you can achieve a lot in your work. As a result, the period between March 9th -10th can be a time where the fruits of your labour are realized and can move you upward in your line of work, reputation, and status. Their can even be an unexpected or surprising reward for you. The period between March 11th – 17th can be a bit intense and chaotic. Any type of communications, writing, work can have someone respond to you in an erratic way or may try to exert power over you. Maybe some changes need to be made or maybe you’re just being tested or challenged. Just hang in there, it will pass after the next New Moon on March 21st.

Sagittarius: This Full Moon highlights your career, duties, and reputation. As this Full Moon is about details, diligence, and work, it may push some Sagittarians out of their comfort zone. This period can be most challenging to those born between Dec 3rd – 11th. Finding that balance between your work and personal life could be a theme. Or you may need to make changes to improve both of them. Their could be changes in your work that  could be beneficial to your income and/or values. From March 9th-10th, it could be a fun and beneficial time in your love life. If you are in a relationship, you may want to do something with your lover that expands your perspective, maybe watch a documentary or go to a lecture, or perhaps something else. From March 11th-17th, you may find yourself in a situation where there could be a sudden event or circumstance, perhaps a fight with your lover, where your values or the way you spend your money needs to be changed. For example, Sagittarius can have a tendency to overdo things especially when it comes to having fun, spending money, drinking, and partying, so it could be related to that. With Saturn in your sign over the next few years, this a period where you need to get more serious and live your life with more discipline. As well, the Virgo Full Moon is asking you to be more conscious of your health, lifestyle and the important details of your life and work.

Capricorn: This Full Moon highlights your goals, spiritual beliefs, ‘big picture’ perspectives, and some Capricorns may even be travelling.  All of these potential themes are a reflection of, or somehow serve, your transforming self-identity and personal values. You may feel the need to communicate your truth to others. When a Capricorn speaks about their beliefs or perspectives, it comes from a very grounded perspective so therefore you could more be more easily received by those who are normally sceptical. Capricorns are more serious and ‘matter of fact’, making you an effective teacher, eye opener, or ‘agent of change’ to others. This is a period where you could be doing a lot of important work at home. From March 9th -10th you could do something in your home that can be some sort of upgrade which could increase its value to you, someone you share it with, or to some potential buyers in the future. The period from March 11th – 17th, you may find yourself in a sudden conflict at home and/or with members of your family such as your parents. Perhaps you will rebelling, or being rebelled against, but ultimately you need to speak your truth. This is a microcosm of the energy affecting the world at large.

Aquarius: This Full Moon highlights your financial obligations which could be in many different ways. It’s a good time to organize all your receipts and paperwork for your taxes. The Virgo Full Moon energy is so helpful because it is detail orientated, so use it to your advantage. There could be some changes come up around shared resources, investments, credit, banking, or even inheritance. These changes could even be orientated around a relationship or regarding shared resources within a relationship. From March 9th – 10th, you could learn something new about asserting yourself in relationships in a way that helps you and the other person grow. From March 11th – 17th, this is a tense time. Be careful while driving or walking in your neighbourhood, as there is a higher risk of accident. You could also have an intense and sudden argument with someone, and it could even be a sibling or someone else close to you. Ultimately, anything can happen in this period, so expect the unexpected.

Pisces: This Full Moon is in your opposite sign, and it may challenge you to pay more attention to the details and the realities of life. Although when looking at overall aspects that day, it’s not that bad for you and you can still go back to your ‘Pisces zone’ of imagination. This Full Moon strongly highlights your relationships and how you relate with others. Any problems around relationships might be instigated by your lack of details and realism. A theme that could play out between you and a relationship is how the two of you are contributing to a good cause. Between March 9th – 10th is a good time to do something that builds up your value in your workplace and in your career in general. From March 11th – 20th, the tense energies could play out in conflicts between you and your co-workers, peers, or amongst a group that you are part of. Their could be conflict between your values and the values of the group. Their could also be some sudden change with your personal finances and resources.

Full Moon In Aquarius: Rationality & Seriousness

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.

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?

Every time I’ve been faced with some pretty big changes I had to make in my life, if I ever sensed resistance in myself, I had to find it in my body as well as navigate it in my mind.  I explain more in the video below.

Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love

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.

An internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization, the Institute of HeartMath dedicates itself to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions, and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology, and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with that of their minds at home, school, work, and play.

It’s becoming clearer to many of us that working together with kindness, compassion and acceptance are the missing pieces for resetting humanity’s fast and furious trajectory into separation and division. It’s also becoming obvious that we cannot create solutions from the same consciousness level that’s creating the problems. Raising our consciousness vibration for drawing peaceful solutions is an undertaking that calls for kindness, forgiveness and an inclusive love that respects our differences.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world. For example, when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a certain message. Because the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, it can yield significant data for researchers.

HeartMath has discovered that  emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.

This is very important work, as it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. For instance, did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions, or that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body, and that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed? Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published research papers, and more can be accessed at heartmath.org.

I recently came across an article published by HeartMath titled “Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love” written by Sara Childre, Pres. of HeartMath Institute and Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder. I thought I would post it below for those who are interested.

Vibrations

HeartMath and many systems use the term vibration in reference to the quality of thoughts, feelings, emotions and attitudes that are generated and influenced by our beliefs, memories, choices, environmental stimuli and more. For example, you often hear people say, “I had to leave that office, the vibes were so low it was draining my energy, or, “I felt a lift from being in her positive vibration.”

The vibration of our moods, attitudes, thoughts and feelings can rise and fall throughout the day, based on our actions and reactions to others, ourselves, or to life’s issues. The vibes we emanate to others and to the environment vary, based on our resilience for balancing our mind, emotions and disposition – especially in today’s dynamic emotional climate.

Lower-level vibrations can occur at every turn in connection with frustration, anger, disappointment, sadness, judgment, comparisons and much more. These emotions are part of being human, but it is within our power to shift out of these debilitating feelings into higher vibrational attitudes and perceptions.

An easy way to maintain a higher vibration is to interweave the qualities of our heart in our connections and interactions. These heart qualities include love, care, compassion, kindness, appreciation, forgiveness, and more. Anyone who experiences these qualities knows their power to lift our feelings into a kinder and more stress-free outlook.

Raising Others’ Vibrations

For evidence that the heartfelt intentions of one individual can raise the heart vibration of others, HeartMath cites studies it has conducted. You may be familiar with the study in which a dog’s incoherent heart rhythms became coherently aligned with a boy’s heart rhythms as he radiated intentional love and care to his dog. Go to Josh and Mable to read more.

Science tells us that human beings and all creatures radiate an electromagnetic field produced by the heartbeat. Our feelings broadcast like radio waves through this field. When you are in the presence of a group of friends, family or others, everyone’s thoughts, feelings and attitudes are intermingling in your immediate area — which HeartMath calls the field environment.

Another study, with 40 participants, explored the effects of being in a coherent field environment. The participants were divided into 10 groups of four people who were seated around a table. They were all connected to equipment that simultaneously measured their level of heart rhythm coherence. Three of the participants had been previously trained in the Heart Lock-In technique and were instructed to get into a coherent state at random times unknown by the fourth untrained person. Overall, as the coherent vibration of the three HeartMath-trained participants increased, the untrained person’s coherence level also measurably increased from being in that more coherent field environment.

Poised in Higher Vibrations

When poised in our higher vibration, we experience many benefits. Decisions and solutions flow more easily due to increased access to our heart’s intuitive wisdom; our discernment becomes more inclusive and our choices become clearer and more effective; it gets much easier to deflect frustration, anxiety, impatience and other chronic stress producers that strain our critical thinking and reasoning.

Most all of us feel more self-secure when in our higher vibrational composure, yet it can be harder to maintain in the midst of challenges and ramped up stress. We can learn to lift our vibration to meet challenges by adding heart qualities of conscious care, kindness, gratitude or compassion in our interactions. As these qualities of love move through our system, it lifts our attitudes automatically for the highest way to deal with the situation at hand.

Unconditional love and compassion are among the highest vibrations of love and are not subject to preconditions, limitations, or requirements of others. They serve the greater interest and benefit of all sentient beings and the environment in which they exist. Many people are realizing that unconditional love and compassion are from our higher consciousness potentials with the capacity for healing and attracting solutions for social transformation.

Uncountable numbers of people have experienced the benefits of compassion and more individuals are resonating with this powerful expression of love in these times of robust change. Practicing compassion is something we can do that benefits all, yet it takes heartfelt commitment to anchor this responsibility to the whole of which we are a part.

Summary of Benefits From Raising Our Vibration Levels

  • Increased care and kindness flow more automatically in our connections.
  • We are more clear-minded and self-secure in our choices and actions.
  • Our mind and emotions interact more harmoniously to suit our needs.
  • We deflect common stress triggers – frustration, impatience, intolerance, etc.
  • We are much more resilient and resistant to fears and self-doubt.
  • Our heart’s deeper care is not overridden by our disruptive mind and emotions.
  • The lift in our attitude wards off anxiety, excessive worries and overwhelm.
  • We tend to lift others and the environment when our vibration is up.
  • We are less judgmental and intolerant with others and ourselves, which prevents mega stress accumulation.
  • Lifting our vibration amplifies our intuitive heart feelings for better choices and outcomes.

Simple Exercises to Raise Your Vibration

(Adapted from exercises in the Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart book.)

How to replace lower vibrational feelings, such as sadness, anger, insecurity, anxiety, self-judgment, rejection, etc.

1. Exercise: Find a quiet place where, for a few minutes, you can breathe easily, imagining with each breath that your mind, emotions and body are becoming still inside. In this stillness, desire the uplifting feeling you would like to have, and as you breathe, imagine breathing this new feeling into your being for a while. Imagine you are creating it with your breath.

2. Another Exercise: When feeling low, just sit quietly and imagine radiating love, compassion and stillness into your mental and emotional nature. Self-care is often allowing ourselves to have a low moment without compounding it with self-criticism. When our light is dim, it helps to give ourselves the feeling of compassionate heart warmth that we would give a child or a pet that is infirm. Even if it doesn’t stop the pain, we know it can help energetically. If we feel awkward while trying this, it helps to ask ourselves, “What’s the difference in nurturing ourselves with compassionate intention than taking the vitamins and health foods we consume for self-care?” Or, “Why do we teach kids to put their hand over a hurt area and radiate sunshine from their heart to help it feel better?” We do this because it’s a natural expression of self-compassion, with benefits to their mental, emotional and physical nature.

You can soon feel a difference when doing these exercises, unless extremely challenged. If it doesn’t work the first time, be patient and simply try again later. Being genuine makes a difference. This activates your heart energy. Practicing for a few days in a row strengthens your capacity to reset unwanted feelings and lower vibrations.

Simple exercises such as these can do more to lift your vibration than you may think. Make it fun to consciously reset your vibration throughout the day and watch your spirit lift and the stress accumulation diminish.
