New Years Eve Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

It’s New Year’s Eve. Time to celebrate the transition from 2009 to 2010. Lots of parties, resolutions and general reveling. It feels like a more powerful New Year’s Eve this year because of the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse taking place in Cancer. And it’s a Blue Moon!

As you review the past year and look forward to the next one, think of how much power is building right now. Surely you have noticed it. Perhaps a vague feeling of restlessness. Or feeling uneasy, anticipating a big event, even though you don’t know what it is. Or a sense of excitement for no explainable reason. Many on the path are reacting to the buildup of energy taking place prior to the shift.

My guidance says it is a little like the leading edge of a weather front that brings pressure changes and strong winds before the weather change actually arrives. So, the restlessness is the leading edge of the energy changes and shifts that are coming.

Guidance says 2010 is going to be a very interesting ride.

Enjoy this evening and the fabulous fireworks in these videos.

Happy New Year 2010!

Seth – Channelings of Jane Roberts – Multimedia

posted by Victoria

These videos are interviews with Jane Roberts and her husband Robert Butts. Jane is the channel for “Seth” the channeled entity in the “Seth Material” books. They are fascinating, especially if one is interested in channeling and the Seth Material in general. They are old (from the mid-seventies), in black and white and I noticed a few places where the sound cuts out for a second here and there.

The first three videos are an interview in which Jane and Robert discuss how the Seth channelings began.

Would You Rather Be Right or Happy?

When I first heard this question over 20 years ago, I thought it was a trick question. Back then, I believed that being right was what made you happy. How could you be happy if you had to admit you were wrong? Over the years, I began to understand it from different points of view.

It became less important to correct people or to win an argument (even though I was SURE I was right), because I knew it would not contribute to peaceful situations. So I was keeping my mouth shut to preserve the peace. I found myself feeling annoyed when other people insisted on correcting me or trying to make me wrong. A perfect reflection no doubt, of the part of me had the urge to compete with them and prove that I was right and they were wrong. Ah — the joys of the ego.

Om – Gayatri Mantra

By now we all know that “Om” or “Aum” is the Universal sound, the vibration. I heard this Mantra, called the Gayatri mantra by Deva Premal. It begins each sutra with “Om.”

It is the most amazing thing that when I play this mantra I smell incense like Nag Champa, though I have no incense in my house due to allergies. I just get the smell, not the smoke itself when I play this. But the perfume of the chant is lovely.

It begins with the voice for about two minutes then brings in other voices and instruments to create a hypnotic rhythm.

A sort of phonetic pronunciation of the mantra goes like this:

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tat savitur vareṇyaṃ
bhargo devasya dhīmahi
dhiyo yo naḥ prachodayāt

According to Ralph T. H. Griffith in his 1896 work “The Hymns of the Rigveda,” a literal translation of the Gayatri Mantra is:
May we attain that excellent glory of Savitar the god:
So may he stimulate our prayers.

Sir William Jones paraphrased it to mean:
Let us adore the supremacy of that divine sun, the god-head who illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return, whom we invoke to direct our understandings aright in our progress toward his holy seat.

And Swami Vivekananda said it means:
We meditate on the glory of that Being who has produced this universe; may He enlighten our minds.”

I like the Vivekananda meaning. When I hear the chant, I feel connected to Source. I know I am always connected because I AM Source, but with this chant it is palpable for me. I Hope you enjoy it as well.

A Whole New World – Part I

I was introduced to spiritual energy modalities when I worked in South Africa. I was on a ten month assignment to help two non-governmental agencies research and create business opportunities for small and large companies. I remember stepping off the plane and feeling electricity in the air. Although dozens of people speaking at least six different languages (not one of them was English) were rushing past me, I felt calm. I wasn’t sure if I was picked up (I didn’t see my name on a card) so I called my contact who told me to just catch a cab to the hotel they booked me at for a day. Right when I got off the phone a man came up to me and asked if I needed a cab.

He was about 30ish, tall, and had a gentle demeanor coupled with a sense of urgency. While in his cab and without any prompting he started instructing me on how to be safe in Johannesburg. He told me which areas to stay away from, where to carry my money, about the different combie (cab) gangs, and how to tell if a person was from the Zulu, Sotho, Khosa tribes…very important information I was to later learn. He told me how proud he was to be living in a time where there can be wonderful opportunities for him and his people. “This is the new South Africa!” he said with pride and happiness.

Happy Winter Solstice – Coming Monday

The Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere, where I live) will be day-after-tomorrow — Monday, December 21, 2009.

I always look forward to the Winter Solstice. Partially because the next day is the beginning of daylight getting longer. I know we must always allow ourselves to go through the darkness as part of surrendering our resistance to what is.

For me it is that period of darkness we all go through before the dawn — even more so because the Sun is transiting my 12th House, activating all of that “hidden” energy. The Sun moves into my 1st House on December 25 each year. So for me, getting to the Winter Solstice and a few days later to Christmas Day feels like awakening from the darkness.

Since it occurs only 10 days before the new calendar year, I often think of the Winter Solstice as the beginning of the end — of the year. I love knowing more daylight is coming. I breathe a sigh of relief every year when the Sun moves into my first house to begin the new Solar Journey through my life. And then, just a few days later, the new calendar year begins, bringing (at least psychologically) a sense of renewal and a chance for new beginnings. Hence the plethora of New Years Resolutions.

I know it is an important day in Wicca but I am not that familiar with Wiccan beliefs so I don’t know how or why they honor the Solstice. (To be fair, I am not very familiar with Christianity, Islam, Hinduism or Buddhism either. I’ve never felt comfortable with organized religion.)

This is a nice song called “The Winter Solstice Song” by Lisa Thiel. I hope you enjoy it and that you enjoy the Winter Solstice.

The Effects of Mercury and Mercury Retrograde

When I was a child there were two subjects I had a fascination about: Greek Mythology and Astrology. I was captivated by the stories of the gods and goddesses; their antics, affairs, fights, bravery and trickery. Astrology held a different kind of fascination. I started reading the daily astrology shorts in my newspaper curious about how my day might evolve; I don’t know why because what could possibly happen in a seven year olds life that isn’t somehow routine? Maybe I was trying to get a heads up on the right day to ask my parents for something I knew they would be somewhat against, like eating ice cream before dinner or watching television until 10 PM on a school night; what all seven year olds want!

Later on as I learned more about astrology I discovered I was on the wrong track in getting what I want from my parents. Continue reading

Celebrate Your Bounty and Good Fortune

The Three of Cups Tarot card represents the celebration of bounty and good fortune. It shows three women jubilantly toasting the wonderful outcome of their work – an abundant harvest. I love this card’s message because it gives us permission to not only celebrate who we are and our hard work but also the right to be abundant. When do we at least stop for some time to reap the benefits of our labors? When do we celebrate ourselves?

I am learning to celebrate myself every day. When I wake up in the morning, I give myself the opportunity to start life anew. Why? Because I’m not the person I was yesterday. I had a series of lessons and opportunities to work through yesterday that allowed me to grow, expand, or contract in my consciousness and start the next day a different person.

The “Impossible” Does Happen

The next time you are looking at the circumstances of your life and feeling that it is impossible to make a leap to wealth, consider the story of Géza and Zsolt Peládi. They are two brothers in Hungary who have been living in a cave near Budapest.

Homeless and without work, they were making money for food and necessities by selling stuff they found in the trash and on the streets. These guys are in their 40s. They couldn’t ever get girlfriends and live a “normal” life because women don’t tend to be attracted to homeless guys who live in caves with no prospects of supporting or contributing to the support of their families.

They were abandoned by their mother when they were young. They never received good parental guidance, education, etc., from their mother. She died some years ago. They never knew their father.

Looking at their lives — looking at “what is” — would certainly not lead anyone to predict what has happened to them. They will soon have a $6.6 Billion fortune to share between themselves and their sister (who is not homeless and lives in the United States). That’s BILLION with a ‘B.’

These are guys for whom a few hundred dollars is a fortune, and now they are making the stratospheric leap to billionaire status.

Their Grandmother — their mother’s mother — died in Germany and these three grandchildren were her only heirs. They did not know their grandmother because their mother had no relationship with her. It never occurred to them that their life circumstances could change so drastically. They obviously were not holding resistance to it, or it could not have happened.

Their story is proof that the “impossible” can happen. So take a lesson from their story and be open to all possibilities, even those you cannot see or that might appear to be ‘impossible.’
