I have arrived back home in New Zealand on Waiheke Island. This small gem in the Pacific Ocean, formed like a dragon and just a 35 minute ferry ride from Auckland continues to be the place where my heart feels settled and at home. It is a magickal place where one can find a deep sense of inner peace in the stillness of the natural world and see into the seed one carries within their heart.
In the energy of the Leo New Moon I traveled to one of my favorite sanctuaries on the island. These ancient stone beings seem to call me on a new moon everytime as the energy comes alive with the celestial light from the Southern Cross. The stones sing, they carry the same song that the whales sing. Every year, just like the whales the song changes. I find this sanctuary a place to receive clarity and guidance. The whale spirit is one that can guide us into unchartered territory and help us navigate emotional waters. There is a gateway amongst the stones that takes one deep into the celestial realms and at the same time connects one deep within the ocean.
This is a time of uncertainty for so many people. A deep sense that life is changing and movement is in the air. Many people have made a recent move or will be in the coming year. Remember 2016 is the Year of Self Mastery and we are all being challenged and pushed to Master the ability to break free of the self-imposed illusions we have created for ourselves. That restless feeling, that stirring inside is simply the seed we carry that holds the dream moving through its gestation period.
Confirmation that the dream is giving birth to wondrous new beginnings came when I descended from the sacred stones and was greeted by two newly born lamb. A beautiful demonstration of wondrous new beginnings.
As our planet becomes more awakened we also become more sensitive to the energy influences, especially solar flares and the movement of the planets. As we release old energy patterns of trauma, grief, anger and fear, our physical bodies respond. Many of you are undergoing complete energy realignments.
As this process continues, I wanted to share simple wisdom from a beautiful soul who was not able to see into the human world but most definitely had the gift of sight. American educator Helen Keller overcame the adversity of being blind and deaf to become one of the 20th century’s leading humanitarians and a source of great inspiration. One of her famous quotes that I always remember is… “No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, sailed to an unchartered land or opened a new heaven to the horizon of spirit”.
How timely is this message as we each stand on the edge of a cliff ready to jump into the unknown. We need to stay focused and remember the dreams we carry. If you have felt discouraged or lost this is a time to trust. Never give up on your dreams. Anything and everything is possible for the one who never loses sight of the dream.
August has the potential to be a wonderful, high-energy month of new opportunities. A month where we gain courage to allow the changes that are inevitable to happen with ease. A planetary alignment known as the Lions Gate opens every year from August 8th to the 12th, when the Sun is in Leo. It is a time when the Sirian star moves closest to the earth aligning in Orion’s belt, above the Pyramids in Giza.
When Sirius is close, the Earth receives a beautiful energetic ray of power, potential and a new stream of consciousness that will allow us all to activate our third eye and tap into the limitless energy of our being. During this stargate opening we are reminded that we are connected to the Universe and that we each hold wisdom and power to create our own reality through our thoughts and perceptions.
There is a tremendous opportunity to receive guidance and direction but only if we take the time to sit in stillness during the Lions Gate opening. You can not move through it with your thinking mind, only an open heart can raise your energy field enough to move through the opening.
I know my world is changing, I feel movement in the winds. There is an anxious feeling when I allow myself to get into my head, but when I retreat into nature I hear only the comforting words of my heart assuring me that I just need to be and allow the Goddess to guide me.
You will know you have stepped into Mastery when you realize that at some point in life, the world’s beauty becomes enough. We only need to step into nature to discover it.
