MERCURY TURNS DIRECT, AND NEW MOON IN PISCES


Happy Friday <3

Together we are creating the New. Mercury is turning direct today, and with this we are also turning - we are turning closer to our True Self, Path, and Truth. Wowing together the mind and the heart - for higher wisdom. Creating and shifting with our freer thought-forms into a reality of Love, Purity, Joy, Passion and Freedom.

Tomorrow on March 1 we have a new Moon in Pisces, which is a water sign - and water has to do with our emotions so they will be high right now. Pisces is also a very spiritual sign so there is a beautiful, magical feeling in the air.

May You Enjoy all of this, beloved Ones <3

Mercury turns direct February 28. By Bill Attride


Your attention is turning outwards again...

The melding of Watery and Airy ways within your Mind,

Was for your Bridging, Blending, Becoming...

As you walk upon the Integral Path of Spirit.

You wove them together, the Intuitional and Rational,

To hold together your Head and your Heart.

You sought to Feel Thoughtfully, and

To Think Lovingly too.

And this has brought you a little closer,

To the One True Way Home, The Way of Understanding...

The Path of Wisdom.

Now Mercury Turns, and you must too. Mercury is the Avatar of your Mind, and he leads you toward the Knowing of your Truth and your Path. For you are a Self-Consciously, Self-Unfolding Being, and the Thoughts that you Think will lead you into the Life that you Create.

Today Mercury moves forward in Aquarius, and your Mind is focused upon your Fellowships, your Companionships and the Hopes and Dreams your share with them for a better world. For you will find that in your Heart you know this: that your Dreams are made of one another, your fulfillment is their promise met as well, because their Hopes and Dreams are yours too.

For you never walk alone, your life is filled with hosts upon hosts of fellow travelers, both seen and unseen, known and unknown to you. You and they yearn for that better world in your dreams, a world that could be, if there were some way to make it so.

Mercury the Messenger has done his part, in his dance between Water and Air, between Intuition and Reason, he has led you to the path by which you can become more than what you were... 

You have gone back within yourself, to touch the essence of your Spiritual Self. For at the heart of you is your most precious Individuality, and whenever you experience this quickening contact you are able to accomplish a most marvelous feat. You are able to self-transcend, to go beyond the thought-forms of your ordinary mind.

By listening to that quiet but steady voice of your soul you draw closer to your Higher Self and the freer mind of Spirit. You are able to break the self-made bounds of the thought-forms that formed you, to see beyond the world you came from. You can lay aside and pass beyond the status quo of the old certainties, and there it is before you, the New Earth.

Embrace your newer, freer thought-forms. Turn with Mercury and share with one another the gift of creating a New World together.

Listen to one another,

Believe in one another,

Think Well of one another,

And you will do this, you will

Build a New Earth.

Together.

THE NEW


Hello there, dear Sisters and Brothers <3 This past night I dreamed that someone close to me gave birth to a baby, the delivery went so smooth and peaceful. The baby was calm and had a completely clean face. This was such a vivid and crystal clear dream. I do feel it represents what I and many are feeling right Now - a fresh and exiting start of something completely New in our lives - a New chapter/stage.

To dream of giving birth, or of someone else you know giving birth - represents fresh, exiting New beginnings, giving birth to positive thoughts, new ideas, projects, and abilities. It may even represent a birth of major events in ones life, and an emergence of a New Self.

Dreaming of the presence of birth may also represent the emergence of  a new aspect of the Self, higher Awareness, Independence, excluding of negativity, nurturing our inner Child, feeling Wholeness, and infinite potential expressing some of its qualities.

A clear/clean baby represents answered Love, and good, warm, caring friends.


Everything we wish to see in the world, such as Divine Love, Compassion, Honor, Respect and Kindness to all of Creation, we ourselves are to create in the Here and Now.
By finding the Divine Spark within oneSelf, we generate Pure Source without.

Oneness/Grace within the Divine feminine and masculine polarity - the union of One, complete balance and Harmony between the feminine and masculine - what will be left is Pure Divine Love - rippling to All. Being of Pure service to all of Creation. With Love, purity and magic within - we notice Magic everywhere. It is the Divine Love that Creates the Magic;)

It is all Right Here, Right Now <3

I Love You <3

BECOMING OUR PURE COSMIC SELF


Make every new Now moment as aligned with your True Self as You possibly can;) If we want to bring in and live our highest potential in this physical body and eventually move on to another dimension of existence, it's a conscious choice that Each and everyone must take on their own. Through Awareness align ourselves with our highest and most authentic Self in every new moment and Live it through our whole Beingness and in absolutely Every Action we take; what we think, say, do, eat, drink, create, and interact with. We can not Create a New way of Living by being in passiveness and make choices based on short term satisfaction of the lower mind.

Let the Love from our inner Spark flow to everything we think, say, do, eat, create, and to everyone we interact with <3 Have deep Compassion, Honor, and Respect for all life <3

Treat yourself the absolute best way possible:) Listen to and trust your inner, your heart, and your body; treat your physical vehicle as the temple that it truly is;)

When all twelve DNA strands are activated we become our Pure Cosmic Self. We become a Pure expression of the multiverse. We are going from a carbon based DNA to a carbon-silica form.
In order to increase the body's crystalline cell growth, it must be cleansed and cleared from toxins. Releasing old habits, eating only Life Force food, clear the emotional body, etc.. All the bodies need to be cleared. One important part for activating this process is to clear the metals out of the body by eating, and only use products that is Actually Good for us. Organic, Living food such as vegetables and fruit, and natural Organic products for our body maintenance is crucial.




It's all RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

LIVE IN AND BE GUIDED BY LOVE


Hi, Beautiful Beings of Love! Now with the North Node in Libra, the focus lies a lot on relationships, we are asked to choose more wisely as we seek for more meaningful relationships. The emphasis now is that we will accommodate and place the wellbeing of the partnership and the partner above all else, but we must remember that oneSelf is one half of any relationship we are in, the relationship must be Fair and Just for us if it is to be Lovingly True for both.

<3 Love, Harmony, Balance, Beauty, Fairness, Justice, Equality. <3

North Node into Libra. February 17, 2014 by Bill Attride

The Way of your Becoming is shifting once again...

For you have made yourself and this world too...long, long ago.

Following ancient pathways, and guided by those who went before,

You are the Awakening Ones...

Dream Walkers weaving Energies into marvelous Matter-Forms.

Riding wave upon wave, surfing the vast oceans of Eternity,

Your Thought-Forms thrill and resonate through Time & Space.

You are lifted by Hope and Faith...bounded by Fear and Doubt.

But it is you and your companions who have made this,

You and they have made what you were, are and will forever Be.

So be not afraid.

Though memory fails you and much is Lost, veiled by Mystery and Time,

This forgetting is but for a while, and is a gift to you, a blessing in disguise...

For you begin each life anew, unburdened by what you cannot yet face.

But Know this, Your Future is Glorious, waiting upon you and your becoming.

And, all that matters...is this moment. This most Precious NOW. For this is the only space of Freedom that will ever be, the only time that you will find that you can make a choice...and you must choose wisely now.

A wondrous but hidden significator of your Journey of Choices is made by the intersection of two Great Circles of Life, the orbit of the Earth around the Sun and the orbit of the Moon around the Earth. These two integral symmetries of meaning meet in Space, and they form by so doing two opposite points where their orbits intersect which are called the North and South Nodes of the Moon.

These moving fulcrums are the points in space at which the Earth, Moon and Sun are aligned to one another within the same spatial plane, all three as one with one another. Every month as the Moon crosses over the North Node it moves above that plane, and whenever it moves over the South Node it goes below it. But twice a year, when all three bodies align on these points you are witness to a wondrous display.

You "see" this intersection and movement whenever the Sun, Moon and Earth move into these nodes for it is then that you experience a Solar or Lunar Eclipse, as all three Lords become aligned with one another and so illustrate quite dramatically and beautifully their integral relationship with one another.

These Nodal Points in Space move around the Zodiac in about 18.5 years, moving "backwards" from Aries back to Pisces back to Aquarius and so on. For the last 18 months the North Node has been in Scorpio (and the South Node has been in Taurus). Today the North Node moves into Libra (and the South Node into Aries), until November 2015. But of course the question you must ask is, "What does this mean for me"?

The Nodes of the Moon in an Astrological Chart are said to indicate your Karmic Pointing for that life. They can help you discern "The Way", of how you are to receive from your past and understand where you have come from, and how you must look ahead and continue your spiritual development by moving towards developing the opposite sensibility in this lifetime. The South Node is said to be your Karma, the North Node is your Dharma. Together they show how you draw from what you have so far made of yourself, and that you will now take your next step in Spiritual growth as you work with the opposite yet complementary sensibility. By this integration you redeem your past and move upon the one true path of wholeness and Spiritual Integration.

But there is always a challenge when you walk this Karma/Dharma path, for you will often find your Past as familiar and easy, and the change to a new way of being as harder for you to master. If you allow yourself to be overly influenced by your past so that you fall under too much influence from the South Node, you may fail to work towards your Dharma, (you fall back into your familiar but less developed patterns). You must make a conscious effort, to work with the lessons brought to you by the North Node or your Dharma, because by this you can draw upon and use the best parts of your past (Karma) while creating a better future for yourself. You actually bequeath to yourself a better future, your Karma, by maintaining your awareness and focus upon your present Dharma.

With regards to this shift of the Transiting Nodes, the message for you is subtle and profound. The North Node has been in Scorpio since August 2012, and you should have been attentive to your relationship and your need to consciously choose to work with this opportunity of being able to forge deeper Unions with one another. To do this you had to face your fears of rejection, of being rejected or of rejecting yourself, and instead find the way to discern exactly what you could sacrifice in order to make possible the experience of a greater "we".

You should have drawn upon your Karma as indicated by Taurus to help you here, for it would have reminded you that there are some sacrifices that are false, and a true sacrifice means that it is sacred, it is good, it is done for and by love. For this is what makes your core, your essential Value is the Love of You, the love of your Higher Self for you. You must offer sacrifices to join with one another, but you must forever and always honor and hold firm to your Heart, to who you are and to keep as sacred and true your ever abiding love that is your Beloved.

Now with the North Node in Libra, you are also asked to choose wisely as you seek for a more meaningful relationship, but here you are given a different opportunity and challenge. The Way of Libra reminds you now to keep to the path of Balance and Justice, to follow the ways of Fairness and be guided by the fundamental Principle formed by your oneness in Spirit:

There will only be Justice when there is Equality for one and all.

You are here to bring about Harmony and Beauty in your world by forging relationships based upon this essential Truth, that it is Love that holds you as one to one another, and that you need to live in and be guided by a love for the other that is equal to the love you have for yourself too.

For it is Libra's way to think not of oneself, but instead to put the other first, and the good of the relationship above all else...and yet, here too one can and may probably go too far. And so the Karma of the Aries South Node is there for you, to remind you that a relationship requires the equal participation of both as Individuals. To do your part to bring about a healthy relationship requires forging a dynamic equilibrium, where balance is found by giving way and holding firm, for you must assert yourself in your Truth and contribute your uniqueness to make a relationship of beauty that is formed by a One and another One who choose to grow together.

The emphasis now will and must be upon Libra, and you will accommodate and place the wellbeing of the partnership and the partner above all else, and this is good. But you must equally remember that you are one half of any relationship that you are in, and so your relationship must be fair and just for you if it is to be lovingly true for the both of you.

The Weaving Way of Spirit is turning again...

You and your companions upon the Path.

So many turnings, so many choices,

But in the end it is simple.

As it was in the beginning,

It will be in the End.

Turn towards one another, knowing

All are equal, there is no other way.

Before you, is just you.

So be True to your Self, Love.

Just Love one another.

Choose Love.

BECOMING CRYSTALLINE

 

Becoming Crystalline <3 When all twelve DNA strands are activated we become our Pure Cosmic Self. We are going from a carbon based DNA to a carbon silica form. 
In order for our bodies to hold this, it must be cleansed and cleared as much as possible, on the outside and inside, all the bodies. When we clear the metals out of the body by eating, and only use products that's Actually Good for us we are activating this process. Organic, Living food such as vegetables and fruit, and natural organic products for our body maintenance is a crucial component for starting this process.

A little tip: A great alternative to a couple unhealthy products, that sadly enough many people use, which is normal toothpaste (which contains fluoride and other bad stuff ), and deodorant (which contains aluminum) is Organic Coconut Oil!!, it can be used for almost anything lol!, I've used it a long time for brushing my teeth and as a "deodorant". It works beautifully! It can also be used as moisturizer for the whole body, as make up remover, hair mask, the list goes on:) It's also very good for the inside of the body of course.
