You are the one you've been waiting for

July 2019

The solstice of June 21st marked the midpoint of 2019. A time to consider what the year has brought, and what would we like it to bring? The astrologists are telling us that this is a powerful time where emotions can fuel the changes that we desire to see. 

It is a turning of the ages. From its beginning, the earth had experienced the Ice age, the Stone age, the Dark age; times when humanity shifted paradigms.  This time is no different. So, here we are in the age of Aquarius - the age of conscious co-creation.  Let's look at what that may mean for you:

According to the Mayan Calendar, we've moved from a world focused on power, into a battle between power and ethics.  We're currently experiencing a clash between ethics and truth. The predicted result of this struggle is a NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH, yet, the struggle does not seem to be helping us get there, does it? 

Here's a radical thought:
What if we stopped struggling? What if we let LOVE guide us?

Since the old ways that no longer serve us are being destroyed or are falling away, we need to find ways to keep calm and balanced in this tumultuous time.  Eventually, things will lighten up - it's going to get brighter and more comfortable, but until then, we need to support each other. Let's birth a new paradigm together!  

This is a time for courage.  A time to step up and into maturity, to live the life that you were born to create for yourself.  We've all been healing from past traumas, from this lifetime or another.  We've been, and continue to be, pushed past our boundaries, or we have been resisting change.  A NEW YOU is being birthed.  The astrologists and spiritual leaders tell us there are only two choices - to be the victim or the creator. Which will you be? Will you choose to be done with self-sabotage and treat yourself kindly?

It's time to focus on your resources.  What resources have dried up, what new resources have appeared, what are difficult circumstances showing you, and what direction are they pointing you towards? Who supports you and who doesn't?

Find a community that allows you to be authentic. If you've found your soul tribe, relax into the loving safety as you learn to shine ever more brightly.  If you haven't found that community yet, what are you waiting for? Create it. Do not look outside of yourself for the leader. You are the one you've been waiting for.  The time is NOW!

Heed this message from the Hopi Elders:

You have been telling the people that this is the eleventh hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the hour, and there are things to be considered:

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.

It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other,
and do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time! There is a river now flowing very fast. It is so swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore, and they will feel like they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know that the river has a destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water and see who is in there with you – and celebrate!

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves, for the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves. Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones who we have been waiting for.’
