Sometimes there’s nothing left to do but to step out of the rhetoric. This is that moment. Not only is everyone in deep battle fatigue as this double recession is winding down but we are finally feeling fed up with the drama. It’s time to come up with some strategies rather than live in a world of delusions, games and sidetracks perpetuated by governments around the world.
It’s time to get to work.
These cards clearly indicate that we are over the grandstanding and soapbox politics. Those in power would be wise to heed the warnings because “the public” can and will create a shift.
But how do we find flow? How do we get progress instead of constant stalemates? How do we let go of that which no longer works and come to the table ready to listen and problem solve?
The answer, according to the cards drawn for this month’s reading, is the Divine Feminine! Diplomatic feminine strength. Please notice that I did not say “Women” but the Feminine. The feminine is a force that is about natural laws and organic flow. There has to be a change and that change is coming from the Divine Feminine.
Everyone wants their children to have peace, love, prosperity and opportunity. Our potential is so great but we have to be willing to step up to that plate and own the influence we have over situations that matter.
Aspects of the old way are dying off. Negativity feeds upon itself until there is nothing left. At that time, the dysfunctional system collapses and then resets.
A great quest is upon us. In order to fulfill it, we need to change our thinking. What happens in your mind manifests in the world. Your thoughts become words and those words are translated into actions. We need to look at the thoughts that keep us separate. The key to understanding is acceptance: to accept what is, forgive, and then let it go. Clear the slate and completely start over with fresh eyes, willing hearts, and thoughts that allow for options rather than absolutes.
No matter what we believe, we have to learn to work together for the sake of all. This planet and all the beings that inhabit it have a right to exist—animals, plants, insects, birds, microbes and humans. We are guilty of thinking and planning from our small mind and our ego rather than the wide expansive wonder that is the human potential. We are capable of so much love. Yet do we show it? We have a power to protect the innocent and create laws that support education and financial prosperity for others. But do we do it?
We are part of a great hologram. What makes a hologram unique is that when you break any part of the hologram, you can still see the entire hologram. Just because we see the world breaking in places does not mean the wholeness is not right there. We just need to look. Remember that when one thing suffers, we all suffer. When one thing dies, some part of us dies, too. We are not separate. We are one gigantic hologram.
Our perception is the key to unwinding this dysfunction. When we become aware that we are creating this reality, then there is a call for mental discipline. We step beyond the limited self and merge with others to become the power for change.
2014 is all about that possibility. Each of us might be small but together we are greater than we could imagine. Instead of focusing on what is wrong, let us all focus on the deep love that moves us in life. Your life has a pulse, a rhythm. When you find your place, you find your heart. When you find your love, you will always find others who love you, also.
My wish for 2014 is for all the love that is hidden within each of us to find its way to the surface of our consciousness. And then to allow that love to be the guiding force in our life. How would life look if you were constantly looking at everything in your reality as a beloved? How would you respond if all you could feel was your heart connecting in compassion to another heart?
That would be a beautiful world, one that I believe is possible. Feel if your heart was touched by my words; then allow that feeling to become a trickle of water that will manifest into a river of change. Become the change if you so desire it.
On the other side of right thinking and wrong thinking is a field. I’ll meet you there. ~Rumi
