When you first hear about Twin Flames the idea is appealing – largely because it’s misunderstood at first.

Most people make the mistake of thinking that a Twin Flame means guaranteed love – a guaranteed relationship.

The second reason that Twin Flames appeal is this desperate need we all have to be special – at least to one person… The One.

In this regard, ego has really screwed us over, as has society, with this idea of entitlement to love, a guarantee of love from Divine sources.

It really speaks to our laziness and entitlement as a society that we want an effortless and easy romantic relationship delivered to us, when we all know that relationships take work – a lot of time, dedication and work in fact.

You think I’m wrong? Then why are almost all Twin Flame teachings centered around the runner/chaser cycle?

Because it exists, that’s why.

In fact one Twin Flame running while the other chases is usually a NORM in Twin Flame relationships.

For most Twins, when they meet, it triggers untold chaos in one or both of their lives – usually partnered with a massive spiritual awakening.

This chaos, in fact, is exactly what triggers most Twins to seek a spiritual journey…. the emotional chaos and trauma becomes so great in certain instances, that they are forced to find relief, healing and help that truly speaks to the deepest parts of their soul.

So what other myths might be messing you up when it comes to understanding your Twin Flame?

1. You only have one Twin Flame
2. A Twin Flame is always a romantic relationship
3. Your Twin Flame is guaranteed to work and if it fails, it’s a False Twin
4. Twin Flame relationships will run smoothly from the moment you meet
5. You will be happy when you meet your Twin Flame and you will instantly recognize your Twin Flame
6. Your Twin Flame won’t be married or cheat you/cheat on you
7. All Twin Flame relationships follow the same pattern and trajectory
8. Sex and appearance are not important in romantic Twin Flames

Twin Flame Myth 1: You only have one Twin Flame

The idea that you only have one Twin Flame stems from three different concepts:

  • first, the need to be special again,
  • secondly, a misunderstanding about the Twin Flame mission, combined with a a lot of ego personalization,
  • and thirdly, misunderstanding about how souls are comprised.

Firstly, the need to be special.

Spirituality and many religions – and recently manifestation teachings like The Secret – have left us with a perception that every single one of us is special, and is entitled simply because we exist – because we were born.

But the truth that life throws this back in our faces every single day, tells us this isn’t the case. But we’re desperate to hold onto that hope, so we transfer the idea of being special onto specific life events – like meeting our romantic partner.

Of course there can only be one…. The One in fact.

But this isn’t logical, and the reason is free will.

Our Godlike natures and potential really boil down to one aspect – free will. We have the free will to choose our path and trajectory – and Source honors free will above everything else.

So the very idea that someone is DESTINED or predetermined to get involved with another specific person flies in the face of free will. Free will means you choose – a destined partner means you have no choice.

We always have choice.

But they want to give you the best chance of finding and experiencing the love you deserve, and so in order to do that, they send multiple Twin Flames. This way, if one dies in car accident, or misses the train and doesn’t meet you, or decides to a live a celibate life, there is a backup to take their place.

The reason this can happen is the third mentioned – how souls are comprised.

So your soul has an identity, and let’s say that identity’s name is Sue. Sue is a soul.

When Sue is ready for a life, a piece of her soul will be taken to create a new identity. So let’s say Sue is living four lifetimes at the same time – Mary, Jane, Sarah and Lee. So Sue leaves 20% of her soul energy behind, and takes 20% of her soul into each lifetime.

In order to employ free will though, they need to blank out our memories at birth.

Think about it…. if you knew you would meet the love of your life at 35, and you knew what they looked like and what your karma and soul history with them is, would you take the relationships that came before that seriously? Would you even have them at all, knowing that they were all doomed to fail?

And what if you knew that last lifetime you had been a violent and abusive partner, and this lifetime you’d agreed to enter into an abusive relationship as a victim… would you still enter into the relationship knowing it would mean years of abuse and torture?

Of course not!

Enter memory wiping at birth, and you believe you are making choices of your free will – which you really are. It’s blank slate and a chance to decide entirely based on where you are now.

So when they blank our memory we forget that we are actually Sue, and we start to believe that we are only Mary or only Jane.

However, at the point of death, Mary and Jane and Sarah and Lee will return and become a part of Sue again – but Sue will still be the main identity.

The confusion of being a blank slate at birth means that we grow up thinking that Mary is our only identity, and then we assume that Mary will be the primary identity when we get back. But Mary won’t – she’ll go back to being Sue.

So a Twin Flame can be on your primary soul aspect, in which case it will have the potential to be a lifetime relationship.

Or, the Twin Flame can exist purely on a single soul aspect, in which case it would only be active for as long as that soul aspect is dominant. If you’ve ever experienced one of those lessons where you feel like a whole new person and it takes you a few days to readjust and reorient to your body, then you have experienced a soul aspect awakening.

The reason this is all necessary is the second we mentioned – the Twin Flame mission.

We tend to personalize stuff like Twin Flames, thinking it is about our personal happiness, our personal glory and what God personally has planned for us, because we as individuals are so special.

However, the truth is that we are here as a collective group on a mission to change the world, and Twin Flames play an important energetic role in that.

In a nutshell it works like this: changing people one at a time would be too time consuming and too difficult – the ego barriers at this time are immense. So instead, we are clearing and changing the collective energetic field of the earth – known as the morphic or holographic field.

We do this first through empaths, who absorb negative energy and scrub it, simply removing it from the field altogether. Now however, we are left with an imbalance – a shortage of energy in the field.

Enter Twin Flames, who release the highest form of creation energy, known as zero point energy, when they reconcile dualities.

The reason this happens is because Twin Flames are a recursion of the original I AM separation of creation.

Each time a duality is reconciled therefore, it releases a burst of clean, pure energy into the field to replace what has been scrubbed and removed by the empaths.

From here, the Messiahs enter. Their job is receive new downloads of new layers of information, and broadcast those teachings to others, as well as anchor them energetically in the field.

It’s a team job, and there is no “I” in T-E-A-M.

Twin Flame Myth 2: A Twin Flame is always a romantic relationship

Another common misconception is that Twins are always romantic relationships. This is also a belief that leads to thinking there can only be one Twin Flame.

Remember, Twin Flames are about the mission, and we want to get this done as quickly as possible.

So, if we already have a whole bunch of Twin Flames on earth releasing zero point energy, then doesn’t it make sense that we would give them multiple other Twin Flame relationships in their lives to increase zero point energy production?

On average, about 40% of souls are Twin Flames.

However, at this time on Earth, as many as 70 – 80% of the souls on the planet are Twin Flames.

Some of these are parent/child bonds, some siblings, some friends, some lovers…. the roles don’t matter. It only matters that these relationships are seeing issues reconciled and releasing that zero point energy in the field.

And since they sent backups anyway, it makes sense to have those backups floating around in your life, nearby, in case they need to step in.

Twin Flame Myth 3: Your Twin Flame is guaranteed to work and if it fails, it’s a False Twin

Twin Flames are difficult relationships to navigate.

You already carry these extreme dualities – like one is a liar and the other totally truthful. For this mission however, they added some fuel to the fire and picked Twin Flames that have huge karmic loads to balance as well.

This achieves something amazing from an energetic point of view… it greatly magnifies each burst of zero point energy, giving us way more bang for our buck, and helping the shift progress faster.

However, this also means that the already difficult Twin Flame bond is now going to be even more difficult to navigate.

Which then leads to the next misconception…

Twin Flame Myth 4: Twin Flame relationships will run smoothly from the moment you meet

I reference back to the runner/chaser. There is a good reason this is the most commonly recognized pattern among Twin Flames – it’s COMMON.

More often than not in fact, Twin Flames will be total chaos from the moment you meet.

And if the relationship isn’t chaos, other areas of your life will start falling apart.

One very interesting pattern is the push-pull effect… as one of you comes right in an area, the other will get thrown off balance again.

So one of you is sick or miserable or having a hard time at work, and as soon as you come right, it seems that your partner has something that falls apart.

It can be very frustrating if you don’t balance it, because there always seems to be an imbalance and inequality in the relationship.

This is actually true, because it’s one of the ways that the Twin Flame bond forces you to work as a team – as a single united soul.

Twin Flame Myth 5: You will be happy when you meet your Twin Flame and you will instantly recognize your Twin Flame

I’ve met more Twin Flames where there was disinterest from one party at first, than I have Twin Flames where both instantly fell in love.

It’s almost like some Twin Flames are guaranteed to start with the runner/chaser cycle, with one the Twin Flames instantly falling in love and beginning a (sometimes VERY long) chase to win the other’s affection.

Interestingly, almost all these particular Twin Flames see a switch over in runner/chaser orientation when a commitment is finally made.

Once the runner has been caught and a relationship starts, often that runner becomes the chaser for the duration of the relationship, and in many cases is the heartbroken party at the end of it all.

Twin Flame Myth 6: Your Twin Flame won’t be married or cheat you/cheat on you

This particular misconception causes so much backlash when you talk about it, but it’s very common on this particular cycle.

And before we get into the whole ‘God would never send you anybody married debate,’ I would like to offer this story from the Bible.

So Abraham, the father of Israel, if you don’t know his story, was married to Sarai – later Sarah.

For many years she was barren and could not give him a son. Eventually, in order to ease his pain, Sarah offered him her Egyptian maidservant, Hagar, to mate with. Hagar bore a son for Abraham – his first son – Ishmael.

However, many years later, Sarah was blessed by the Lord and bore him a son, Isaac, who was his father’s favorite.

Isaac grew. The time came for his mother to stop breast-feeding him. On that day Abraham prepared a big celebration. But Sarah saw Ishmael making fun of Isaac. Ishmael was the son Hagar had by Abraham. Hagar was Sarah’s Egyptian slave. Sarah said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman! Get rid of her son! That woman’s son will never have a share of the family’s property. All of it belongs to my son Isaac.” What Sarah said upset Abraham very much. After all, Ishmael was his son.

But God said to Abraham, “Do not be so upset about the boy and your slave Hagar. Listen to what Sarah tells you, because your family line will continue through Isaac. I will also make the son of your slave into a nation. I will do it because he is your child.” – Genesis 21: 8-13

So even God will play favorites and send a partner away.

We can’t always see the bigger picture or the reasons why though.

The reason it’s so common in this time though, has a lot more to do with our own entitlement and instant gratification.

Patience is not a common trait nowadays – not in our quick fix society of instant everything.

This impatience, combined with our desperate loneliness, a need for connection and love, and this idea that we are mature before our time, leads many of us into hasty relationships at an early age.

So the truth is that many of the Twin Flames that are meeting now actually married the wrong person 10 or 15 years ago, and now the universe is finally playing out the fate that you were too impatient to stick around and wait for.

In addition, a lot of people settled or compromised, or fell pregnant or felt ticking biological clocks… and they too got married for the wrong reasons.

It’s not pretty, but it also does fit with the need for massive zero point releases – because the leap to leave a marriage and commit to someone else is a huge thing to reconcile.

The bigger the reconciliation, the bigger the release of energy.

It’s messy, but it serves the purpose – and actually gets the job done a little more quickly than if we’d made it pretty.

And if you think that is hasn’t gotten ugly before… they nailed Jesus to a cross on that last go round. Just think about how gruesome and messy that scene is.

We sadly have to work within the confines of the energies and stories available in people’s lives and the morphic field.

If this story and energy is most prevalent, then this is the resource we will use to achieve our aims.

Twin Flame Myth 7: All Twin Flame relationships follow the same pattern and trajectory

Another big misconception we’ll discuss today is that all Twin Flames follow the same path and trajectory. This simply isn’t true.

The truth is there are actually 2 kinds of Twin Flames – and I don’t mean romantic and platonic, or even Twin Flames, False Twins and Twit Flames.

The 2 kinds of Twin Flames are Expressing Love Twin Flames, and then Creating Love Twin Flames.

Expressing Love Twin Flames are those relationships where it is all sunshine and roses (mostly anyway), and is smooth sailing in regards that the two parties want to be together, and move heaven and earth to make that happen.

The second kind of Twin Flame is a Creating Love Twin Flame, and as the name suggests, these Twins have to work to create the love or opportunity for love.

Whether it’s because one is running, or because of life circumstances, or because one is tied down by obligation, often work, family or marriage, these Twins have to work to traverse and cross huge boundaries to be able to share a life together. Many of theses bonds are also long distance.

In many cases, there is a love triangle where the choice is money/obligation or love.

If these two do manage to get it together, the relationship can also often be rocky when they are living together, and these bonds can be described as passionate and fiery. They can get very fiery in fact.

They’re also often very sexual, with high drama and high energy and tension, which makes them irresistible in many cases. This is especially true for healers and fixers and problem solvers, who prefer the thrill of fixing and solving to the boredom of everything going smoothly.

The many psychopath/narcissist and empath connections coming to light are creating love bonds.

Many of these relationships have already had years of back and forth running and chasing, and have now been rocked by all sorts of terrible betrayal. So there are already two major layers of trust and abandonment to overcome – the runner history and betrayal.

In addition, if these Twins had to choose to move forward, there would be a massive amount of work required to rebuild these relationships or reach a level of trust and connection that would make it worth pursuing again.

Many Twins are battling to walk away from these bonds though, as there does seem to be some importance to the history of the past five years.

There’s some relevance to the fact that these relationships viewed the spiritual transformation we’ve all been undergoing the past few years.

Somehow understanding who we were previously will make a difference later on; but I’m not entirely sure how yet?

Twin Flame Myth 8: Sex and appearance are not important in romantic Twin Flames

This last one really confuses me, and I think it’s about the prudishness of society, combined with spiritual bypassing.

Whatever the reason though, the truth is that almost every romantic relationship has a sexual component – it is a natural expression of the urge to oneness – the urge to move closer to God.

We all understand that our Twin Flames are a spiritual experience, and we know that they trigger a spiritual awakening, which is also about moving closer to God.

These bonds have come into our lives to help us express that need to be close, enjoy shared experience, and be one with the person.

Sex is the most natural expression of this – and most importantly, it is the mechanism of tantric union.

Sexual experience within a Twin Flame romantic bond is meant to help you greatly accelerate both of your trajectory towards Source.

Whether or not you are a Twin Flame, you need to feel, and find your partner, sexy, in order to keep that sexual connection going.

So many Twin Flames are falling apart and having their partners cheat because they are not fulfilling the sexual needs of their partner.

The deal with monogamy is that when you tell the person to be faithful, it is not just for your fidelity in return: the underlying agreement is that you will meet the person’s sexual needs, and be all that they desire, so that they can keep their promise to remain faithful to you.

It doesn’t matter how good you are as friends and companions and parents – living a half life with a romantic Twin Flame you are not sexually engaged with is only living at 70%.

The sex is amazing in Twin Flame bonds for a reason…. the sex contributes to the overall energetic work we are doing. Tantric union is the mechanism of unity.

Every mechanism that we are using to navigate and do the work we are doing is a natural mechanism or expression that occurs normally in our daily lives.

This is the backup mechanism from the universe, and reason they do it like this is so that they can be sure it will still happen, or start to happen, even without conscious interference from lightworkers in the field.

So basically, by building the mechanisms into our normal day to day life expression, they could be sure the shift would start – even if none us had woken up already.

Another key point to note about appearance is that we come programmed with the knowledge of what our ideal Twin will look like.

First impressions count, and you don’t want to miss the mark because you haven’t kept up your side of what they expect you too look like…especially if you only have one or two chances at meeting your Flame.

Researchers Outline Reality of Psychic Ability & Explore Whether It May ‘Run In The Family’

Avatar

Published

CE Staff Writer 8 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It is commonly believed that psychic ability, like many mental and physical traits, runs in families. This suggests the presence of a genetic component. Researchers recently decided to search for one among people with psychic abilities.

  • Reflect On:

    Can special abilities, or psychic abilities be passed down? Are these abilities innate and lying dormant within all of us?

Before you begin...

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.

‘Psychic ability’ comes in many different forms, from telepathy to clairvoyance or remote viewing, there are a number of phenomena that have been demonstrated under strict scientific controls that have yielded statistically significant and repeatable results. There are also multiple declassified documents that have been archived by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) via their electronic reading room, for example, pertaining to individuals with “special abilities” who are able to perform feats like telekinesis, or healing at a distance. You can access a few examples of that here, and here where I go more into depth.

The literature in this area, from peer-reviewed research all the way to examples from the within the defense departments of  multiple countries, is quite robust. It’s another subject seen as fringe and in-credible yet has more than enough evidence to for a reasonable person to deem these abilities as possible.

The researchers of a recent study published in EXPLORE titled “Genetics of psychic ability – A pilot case-control exome sequencing study” decided to search for some sort of genetic link among people with psychic abilities. They explain:

Many cognitive and perceptual abilities are associated with genetic factors. An open question is whether or not extraordinary “psychic” abilities such as mind-to-mind communication (in the vernacular, telepathy), knowledge of future events before they occur (precognition), and perception of hidden or remote events (clairvoyance), might also be associated with genetic factors. Evidence of the reality of such extraordinary abilities has been offered by multiple meta-analysis of experiments conducted over the past century, which demonstrate independent repeatability and robust statistical significance.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that extraordinary manifestations of these abilities run in families.. Few formal studies have evaluated the genetics of psychic abilities. Telepathy studies with identical and non-identical twins have found mixed evidence for greater concordance among identical versus nonidentical twins on telepathy task performanceOther case studies of families with data on up to four generations have been conducted. The pattern of familial transmission in second sighthas also been examined. This capacity is defined as “a special psychic ability believed to be a natural faculty of mind, regarded as an inborn gift by some andan affliction by others…Second sight implies that there are two forms of sight. One is normal sight and the other is the ability to have prophetic visions which occur spontaneously and arrarely directed at will.” Second sight is considered hereditary within the Scottish tradition. A formal pedigree analysis of second sight found an autosomal dominant pattern f inheritance. Other studies have evaluated the relationships between psychic abilities and the temporal lobe. However, to our knowledge, no similar investigations have been conducted using modern genetics techniques.

Interesting stuff, isn’t it? For the study, more than 3,000 candidates from around the world were selected and screened through two online surveys. This was done to locate people who claimed that they, as well as other family members, had some form of psychic ability. Eligible candidates were then selected as the final “psychic cases,” and then age, sex, and ethnicity-matched individuals, with no claims of psychic ability, were selected as the controls.

DNA from the saliva of the 23 participants were subjected to “whole-exome sequencing.” This is a test that looks at most of the genes within an individual. After this, two independent bioinformatics analyses were blindly applied to the sequenced data. This means the ones doing the analyses had no idea about the results the other lab was getting. They were completely separate.The analyses focused on protein-coding sequences and another one included some adjacent noncoding sequences.

According to the researchers:

Sequencing data were obtained for all samples, except for one in the control group that did not pass the quality controls and was not included in further analyses. After unblinding the datasets, none of the protein-coding sequences (i.e., exons) showed any variation that discriminated between cases and controls. However, a difference was observed in the intron (i.e., non-protein-coding region) adjacent to an exon in the TNRC18 gene (Trinucleotide Repeat-Containing Gene 18 Protein) on chromosome 7. This variation, an alteration of GG to GA, was found in 7 of 9 controls and was absent from all psychic cases.

You can access the full study here.

This means the study did not find any significant markers suggesting that these abilities may be genetic, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t. We already know through epigenetic studies that various traits are passed down to offspring, be it physical or even emotional. It is interesting that the study did however identify a noncoding variant that was largely restricted to non-psychic controls.

The most conservative interpretation of these results is that they result from random population sampling. However, when the results are considered in relation to other lines of evidence, the results are more provocative. Further research is justified to replicate and extend these findings.

Keep in mind, the researchers did test those who claimed to have psychic ability and overall they scored better on the tests than those who did not. There were many limitations to this study, and a big one was the size of the number of people used for the study.

Given the fact that, in the researchers experience and based on my research and examples that I’ve written about, these abilities are undoubtedly real, so looking for some sort of genetic component is quite reasonable and would have tremendous implications.

The researchers explain:

The identification of genes involved in psychic abilities has the potential to yield clues about their distribution within the general population and also their evolutionary origins. Such a finding may also have clinical value because it may help inform the development of pharmacological or environmental interventions to enhance or suppress such abilities, and clinical performance applications could be used. Enhancing these abilities could augment decision-making in many contexts, stimulate creativity in art and science, and improve diagnosis of disease, insofar as these faculties and activities may be partly dependent on, or enhanced by, psychic ability.

For example, perhaps telepathic communications could be developed for individuals living with communication disabilities, such as aphasia or cerebral palsy. On the other hand, suppressing these abilities might alleviate psychotic symptoms in some individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, insofar as “disordered” psychic manifestations may be at risk factor in these individuals.

The Takeaway: Studies within the realm of parapsychology, which encompasses the study of various psychic abilities mentioned in this article, are abundant. Many show eye-opening repeatable results. Remote viewing is one of many great examples, showing “successful replication” by yielding “significant scientific evidence.” (source)

The methodology and the controls on these experiments are tighter than any other area of science where I’ve worked. Dr. Dr. Jessica Utts, former Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine (source)

Again, there are also documented real world examples that defy belief linked earlier within this article, which brings me to my next point. Much of the science produced today, in my opinion, isn’t really following the scientific method. By that I mean discoveries that challenge what we once thought we knew, and ones that have paradigm shifting implications for humanity, are often ignored and unacknowledged. We see this all the time in the field of parapsychology.

“There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.”
 Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

Why do we fail to properly confront new concepts and ideas that don’t fit within the frame? Studies and results from these realms truly call into question what we think we know about the nature of reality and human potential. They will force humanity to open up to a broader view of reality that currently may not fit within the accepted framework of knowledge in the minds of many. But if there’s one thing that’s constant, it’s change.

Discoveries in this field, I believe, will lead to the realization that love, compassion, thoughts, emotions and service to others are key for humanity to move forward. It’s more than likely that this is the true nature of human beings, not competition and separation.

These must be our priority, we have to change the way we think here on planet Earth. If we continue to operate from a place of greed, ego, and have a lust for power, control and material wealth, which are cultural learnings, not necessarily our nature, we will not move forward to a thriving world. Non-material science has the potential to change the way we perceive the world, and ask the deeper questions like, why do we live the way we do when we can create a human experience where everybody can thrive? How can a race that is so intelligent and technologically advanced be so politically and morally corrupt?

New Moon In Aries: Taking Bold Action

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 New Moon in Aries during the later hours of April 11th in the Americas and on the 12th everywhere else in the world. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned throughout this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Scorpio on April 26th/27th.

Aries season began at the Equinox (on March 20th globally this year) as it always does, as per the framework of the Tropical Zodiac. Being the first of twelve signs, and initiator of a transitional season, it begins the Astrological New Year. However with this New Moon actually occurring in Aries as well, it will crank up the energies of this sign even more so in comparison to the previous weeks that were part of a lunar cycle initiated by a New Moon in Pisces.

Aries is the domain of self, independence, and individual needs. As a Cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars, it is assertive, courageous, direct, pioneering, and leading. It is initiating, quick, bold, energetic, and warrior-like. Negatively, this energy can be inconsiderate, selfish,  hot tempered, combative, restless, impatient, aggressive, and overly competitive. Aries lacks thoroughness due to its quick forward energy.

New Moon Conjunct Mercury & Venus In Aries

This New Moon is close to both Mercury and Venus. This can reflect a period in which our social interactions and engagement with others can be more lively. Both Mercury and Aries have a busy moving type of energy and we may feel more active, physically and/or mentally, as a result.

The conjunction of both of these planets with this New Moon also means it is tied into cycles that each of those planets have with the Sun. Venus recently joined the Sun in the last week of March and it is now travelling ahead of it in zodiacal position.

In recent weeks this has been a time in which we experienced shifts, developments, endings, beginnings, or more clarity around Venus areas of friends, love, social dynamics, values, worth, or financial matters in some cases. This New Moon and the weeks following can continue this process, especially when it comes to beginnings or newer ways of expressing ourselves in these areas.

Mercury is now approaching the Sun as they will make their conjunction on April 18th/19th. At that time we may experience developments, which may be significant, connected to what has transpired during its previous retrograde in February and how things have unfolded since then. From there, these things may develop further with a better perception, or circumstances may indicate lack of sufficiency, not what was anticipated, or that something needs to change.

Planets In Aries Square Pluto & Sextile Mars Trine Jupiter

This New Moon, along with Venus and Mercury, are in a square with Pluto and sextile with Mars and Jupiter. Pluto combined with Aries and Mars energy can reflect a period of intensity. However, it can also play out as issues around power, control, manipulation, jealousy, insubordination, or subversion.  It can also be revealing, psychological, compulsive, transforming, and purging.

The sextile with Mars in Gemini adds to the lively, assertive, instinctual, and energetic expressions of Aries. The Aries’ planets sextile to Jupiter, which is also trine Mars, can be good for applying ourselves in a way that is expansive, optimistic, educational, philosophical, explorative, freedom seeking, or centered around beliefs. New doors may open up and it can even be lucky for some people.

Uranus square Saturn (mentioned here in a previous article) is still in the backdrop as it will be throughout the year. Although it’s not in one of its strong periods, themes of ‘freedom/rebellion/revolution being at odds restrictions/limitations/traditions are still playing out. This may get activated in different ways by this new lunar cycle and the Aries energy that has already been present over the previous weeks following the Astrological New Year.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

How would you like to grow and expand and what do you need to change to get there? In what areas do you need to be more bold or courageous? What have your relationships shown you in recent weeks? What is important for your individuality? What are your personal needs? What do you stand for and should you be fighting for it? Do you need to be a leader in any aspects of your life? Are there any new things that you want to explore?

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 2:31am Universal Time on April 12th. 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.

Have you ever noticed that discussions about transhumanism tend to focus on technology more than humanism? The journey to reaching our highest potential as a species is usually focused externally on the technology rather than internally on our conscious evolution. This is probably because people assume that conscious evolution is more about spirituality whereas technology is more having to do with the things humans create. The two paths are interdependent so we need more conversations between experts in each of these fields. It will only be through a recognition of the symbiotic nature between humans, their technology, and the environment that we will avert self-destruction.

trans·hu·man·ism (n.) 1. A belief that humans should strive to transcend the physical limitations of the mind and body by technological means. 2. A movement of people who espouse such a belief.

Standing at a Crossroads: The influence that technology has on society and culture is called, technodeterminism. Most of us carry mini supercomputers in our pockets called smartphones. These devices act as external brains which seamlessly integrate into most aspects of our life. Most of us are completely dependent on them for travel, work, communication, entertainment, and beyond. Take a moment to consider the future implications of augmented reality, artificial intelligence, machine-learning, mass surveillance, automation, genome editing, nanotechnology, and their potential influences on society, culture, and our environment.

When I think about these things, I can’t help but ask:

Why aren’t people like the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and Dr. Andrew Weil conversing more with people like Ray Kurzweil, Elon Musk, and Steve Mann?

Ancient Futures: It will become increasingly imperative for our most advanced technologies to be informed by the natural ethos of indigenous people blended with the emotional-intelligence of our enlightened spiritual masters. We must remember that the first humans who captured fire to light their cave, stay warm on a cold night, or cook their food were using technology. Anthropologists proudly call us humans “tool-makers” as one of the attributes that make us distinct from most species.

Paradigm Shift: Conscious evolution will require a concerted effort to communicate across silos and disciplines. Cooperation and collaboration towards collective goals will need to take the place of competition for personal gain. What are we hoping to accomplish, and at what cost? We are a risk-taking species and that drives us to exceed all our limitations. Let’s make these be calculated risks because with our technology also comes a great responsibility.

Start Within: Even our most sophisticated technology does not possess the complexities of organic systems. Computers and machines can do many things for us but they will never be able to feel for us. The realm of emotion is central and unique to our human experience yet it is only now starting to be recognized as a valuable form of intelligence.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.” -Andrew Coleman A Dictionary of Psychology

Research in multiple fields of study shows that curiosity, creativity, taking initiative, multi-disciplinary thinking, and empathy are skills that will redefine traditional beliefs about intelligence. The ability to accommodate new information requires a certain level of mental flexibility, humility, and ultimately character. It is through our ability to feel and process our emotions that our higher intelligence flourishes.

SuperHumans: Any sports fan knows that there are individuals who possess superhuman gifts. Think of popular sports stars like Michael Jordan, or any of the various extreme sports heroes who somehow manage the seemingly impossible. We also have the various musical or art prodigies who express the skills of a master before the age of 10. We have seen humans walk on red-hot coals with bare feet, walk a tightrope between skyscrapers, and exhibit mind-boggling feats of mental-focus, and will-power. Did you know that Wim Hof ran a half marathon barefoot on ice and snow, with a time of 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 34 seconds? Humans are capable of amazing things when they channel discipline, practice, creative brilliance, fearlessness and focus. We have barely scratched the surface of what is possible!

Global Meditation: This simple practice of quieting the mind, and bringing presence to one’s breathing has a long list of documented benefits that include enhanced neural connections, deep feelings of connection and well-being, as well as a strengthened immune system. When we compound this focused intention to include tens of thousands of people all over the world, we begin to literally shift planetary magnetic resonance. The science does not lie, we are potent electrical beings with the ability to focus consciousness and create beyond our wildest imaginations.

Everything technology offers is a reflection of the technology that we, as humans are. Learning to laugh at ourselves a little while delving into our emotions and to make room for possibilities beyond our currently held beliefs is essential for this journey. In order for us to create technology that is aligned with all of life and our planet, we must first become aligned with ourselves and each other. Global meditation is where we practice together!

We can no longer claim that a technology is advanced if it is destroying our skies and rivers or perpetuating harmful practices like war and domination. These are examples of misguided technologies. Our DNA has been informed by countless generations of evolution. It is time that we focus our consciousness towards the natural wisdom kept by indigenous people, while embracing the presence of enlightened spiritual masters. This will allow us to infuse our science and highest technological advancements with ecological and emotional intelligence for the benefit of all life.
