Growth-accelerator Eclipses

The time in between Eclipses is often uncomfortable. The Solar Eclipse brings in a rush of new energy. We can feel limitless with the dreams, ideas, goals and expansion calling us. The Lunar Eclipse is about shedding and letting go: old habits, behaviours, beliefs, patterns, and sometimes people.

Right now you may feel as if you are between a rock and a hard place, as on one hand you want to surge forward. Yet on the other there is all this unpleasant 'stuff' coming up for your attention, either within you or you are seeing it in others. Maybe you are surging forward regardless, in which case: fabulous!

This 'stuff' can make it seem like everything is going pear-shaped, but in fact it is just like the dust that flies around when you give your room a good clean.

Years ago (or even months ago) we may have invested a lot of time trying to work out where all this dust was coming from, why it was there, etc etc etc. Now, all we need to know is: the dust is no longer needing or wanting to be part of us. Likewise, we no longer need or want the dust. We are like that lotus flower emerging out of the mud, realising, oh wow, I'm a big lotus flower, I wasn't all that mud after all!

Our beliefs around lack are old programs: press eject. Our beliefs around not being good enough or worthy enough: vote them off the island. We are going to see a lot of old behaviour and emotions come out of ourselves and others in the coming days and week. Try not to let it push your buttons or give you a reason to berate yourself for not having 'got this' already. Try not to let it cause an argument between yourself and someone you love or your colleagues, or spiral you into a pit of judgement and despair.

We are the lotus flowers emerging out of the mud - so some mud of course will come up as we grow. You or others may feel irritable and nit-picky - as the mud comes up, it is so different now to who we have become, the vibration is so much denser, and you will feel that as heaviness or tension or like something you want to break free from. Knowing it is old mud being brought up by our emerging lotus flowers might help your process.

Eclipses are growth-accelerators. Focus on the lotus flower that you are, and that others are, while becoming increasingly aware of what no longer works for you, or for our world.

How are you all feeling?

Relationships: Shifting and triggering

A couple of people emailed me a similar question last week about big changes that are happening in their relationship. One has ended a long-term relationship, while the other is in a good marriage yet has found there is a strong energy connection with someone else. Both asked if there were any insights that could help their respective situations. I've covered this topic in this week's Let Love In webcast, but here's my response in case you are going through something similar: 

Essentially as one person awakens or has a "growth spurt", one of two things are tending to happen: the relationship (and partner) is called to shift to a higher, deeper level or one person shifts while the other doesn't (or they shift in different directions), triggering the end of that union, or resulting in an uncomfortable experience until something changes.

In this new evolutionary cycle we are experiencing the end of karmic relationships and dynamics..that is, the end of the relationships primary purpose being the healing of old wounds and issues, healing inner child and past life stuff etc. As we move into wholeness and are taking greater responsibility for our own emergence, we are connecting in a new way. Our relationships are more now about supporting and encouraging each other to expand into our wholeness, to be all we are here to be, rather than fill someone else's "hole" or hold their stuff for them.

It is also common to meet someone who triggers all of this for you, and increasingly this is happening while people are in relationship with someone else. This then forces the question for people: am I happy in my relationship, am I not? If not, why not? Is there something my partner and I can do/need to do to regain connection and intimacy or is our time done? These triggers are ideally used in a conscious, responsible way. That is, they are an opportunity for a new level of conversation and connection in your current relationship.

Sometimes those coming along are your next mate, albeit unexpected and unplanned, other times they are a soul 'trigger' mate, destined to come along to shake things up and turn you toward your new direction - in love, and other ways also.

Are you finding that there are lots of relationship shifts going on in your lives and around you?

Creating your reality...laws and disclaimers

Different teachers use different words but we're all really saying the same thing: "believe it and you'll see it", "ask, believe, receive", "as ye shall ask, so shall ye receive", "If you can see it and dream it, you can achieve it."

These are more than just inspirational quotes, they are laws of vibration and reality creation. I wish we were all taught this in school, but it's never too later to remember these teachings and apply them to our lives.

One thing that is important to also know in conjunction with the above is the small print disclaimers that follow : "if it is truly meant for you", "in the best most right divine timing", "if it is for your highest good". These aren't the Universe covering itself just in case things don't work out. They are laws working for you. Sometimes we think we want something, or someone, but our Soul can see what is up the road - something better, something more in alignment with who we really are - and so we are re-directed.

Other times we have fears, beliefs or other priorities (conscious and subconscious) that are in conflict with what we want, and so what we want is shoved to the side until we address those. If we believe that having xyz will lead to a loss of something (freedom, time, self), then we will delay it over and over again until we truly don't believe that anymore. One day, when that belief, fear or priority changes, we wake up to new ideas, solutions and pathways that give us new clarity, opening us up to actions that never occurred to us before - allowing us to let in our dreams and desires.

Go easy on yourself as you create your life. It is a work in progress, and with new expansion comes new dreams and desires. Enjoy all you have done so far, and look forward to the more that is to come.

The week that was: Energies a go-go!

What a week that was! Between multiple strong solar flares, a super new moon, solar eclipse and Equinox, it feels like we haven't been able to catch our breath.

You may have felt like more things than usual were jam-packed into your schedule this past week, meanwhile the clock was accelerated making it feel like we were running on the go constantly! That said, I noticed that anytime I thought "Actually, I don't want to rush. I'm really enjoying what I'm doing right now" it is as if time slowed down and expanded a bit allowing a much more comfortable and joyful experience. 

The energies are fast right now, there is no doubt about it. Yet I'm being shown that scene from the movie Lucy, where she is standing in the middle of Times Square. Everyone is rushing around, but with a wave of the hand she can slow the scene down. If only it were that easy, but we definitely have the ability to feel something similar to this. When we take a moment to stop and breathe, it is like we press pause on all of our hectic to do lists and errands, and step out of time for a minute.

Image result for scene from Lucy Times square

Scene from 'Lucy'

That may mean literally taking a minute, in between being ready to rush out the door, and stepping outside your door just stop, take a minute, or even 30 seconds. Close your eyes. Breathe. That 30 seconds or a minute can be just as effective as a long meditation because time doesn't really exist. It can make the difference between feeling pushed and stretched all day, to feeling a bit calmer, less anxious, more centred and clearer to take on the day.

It is becoming increasingly important to take this time for ourselves. Sometimes this means re-arranging your calendar to say you know, I just can't fit all of this in today/this week. I am going to re-schedule these things and instead take an afternoon/this evening/this Sunday to just catch up with myself and re-charge. Saying yes to yourself can be hard because it often means saying no to a commitment or something that needs doing, but we are no good to anyone when we feel depleted and frazzled.

So as we move into this last week of March make a commitment to yourself to say yes to yourself more often. To stop, breathe and re-charge more regularly - be it a minute here and there every day, or an afternoon not obligated to be anywhere on a weekend.

These energy waves are like a tidal wave, moving us faster and faster forward. That is not going to stop anytime soon. We can't control those waves, but we can learn to ride them in a way that feels exhilarating when we feel up to the go go pace, yet know how to go within when we need to bunker down for a break.

How has your week been?

One phase closes, and a huge door opens

This week we find ourselves at the end of a major astrological chapter, and at the beginning of a major new one. Since June 2012, Uranus has squared off with Pluto not once, but 7 times. Both these guys are transformation specialists.

Working in tandem, Pluto acts kind of like a building inspector, going through a high-rise building, entering every room from top storey to basement, inspecting, checking things off on his clipboard. Pluto likes everything functioning at optimum power. If there is anything amiss, anything not in alignment with occupational health and safety standards, anything a bit dodgy or untoward going on, if the foundation is not solid, or if the walls were created using low-quality plaster, Pluto will not hesitate to make a note on his bit of paper: Marked for demolition! Needs an upgrade and refurbishment!  Light wattage to be increased!

He calls in Uranus, the trigger-happy electrician/explosives expert. Uranus opens his coat and asks 'What do you need? I've got new wires for re-wiring, I've got sparks for extra shocks, and I've got dynamite if you want the whole shebang to come tumbling down."

Pluto issues his directions and the rest is, well, what is now your history of the last almost 3 years.

Depending on where these Uranus/Pluto meetings were happening in your personal natal chart (I have included a list below of the signs/degrees), you may or may not have been consciously aware of what exactly in your life - inner and/or outer - was being transformed. For some it may have been subtle, for others extremely direct, but we've all experienced this influence on some level because we all have the related signs/degrees somewhere in our chart. (You can get a free chart at www.astro.com)

As we pop out the other side of the final 7th meeting, it may only be now that you can look back in hindsight, look at the dates below (even if you don't know your chart specifics) and ask yourself: What was going on during those times? And what theme has been playing out over this period? 

You may find that something quite specific started to play out mid 2012, that has gone through several metamorphosis's and shifts. You may also feel, or will soon, that whatever was playing out has come to a final conclusion, a final resolution or realisation. Perhaps a full circle moment has happened. Something that was out of balance is now balanced or coming into balance in a clearer way. Something that needed addressing has been acknowledged. A healing or outcome that perhaps wasn't possible before is now possible. A particular story of your life is now being put to bed, and you can move forward in a new way: transformed, with a new feeling of power in some way. All of these things are examples of how we may feel in this 'After' phase of this series of alignments.

Uranus Square Pluto Exact Alignment Dates 2012-2015

    June 24, 2012: Uranus 08° 23' Aries/ Pluto 08° 23' Capricorn
    Sept 18, 2012: Uranus 06° 57' Aries, Pluto 06° 57' Capricorn
    May 20, 2013: Uranus 11° 14' Aries, Pluto 11° 14' Capricorn
    Nov 1, 2013:    Uranus 9° 26' Aries, Pluto 9° 26' Capricorn
    April 21, 2014: Uranus 13° 34' Aries, Pluto 13° 34' Capricorn
    Dec 14, 2014: Uranus 12° 35' Aries, Pluto 12° 35' Capricorn
    March 16, 2015: Uranus 15° 18' Aries, Pluto 15° 18' Capricorn

Now, as they say as one door closes another one opens and as timing would have it, this Friday we have the opening of a huge door: The New Moon Solar Eclipse on 29° 27' Pisces, a whisper of a hair away from 0 degrees Aries which represents the beginning of the astrological wheel, is immediately followed by the 21 March Equinox. 

Being so close to the end of a sign could definitely represent huge endings for some people, but a) being a Solar Eclipse and b) being so close to the forward-momentum oriented Aries, the ending will very quickly make way for a new beginning. Anything that happens during a Solar Eclipse is one of those destined things 'written in the stars' so to speak, and knowing that can make some things easier to deal with.

Others will feel the push of the forward movement almost immediately. The time period of Thursday night through the weekend is a really powerful 'portal' time, where you can truly set some amazing intentions into motion, and receive clear insights as to the best directions and actions to take. Sit down with your journal or meditate for 10 minutes each of those days for maximum benefit.

What has your Uranus/Pluto theme been?

Energy and intentions overriding your words

Here is a great example of how our energy and intentions are overriding our physical realm right now, more than ever!

Last weekend I had arranged to meet with a friend for lunch. She asked me to choose a place as it was for my upcoming birthday. I looked for something half-way between our homes, and kept gravitating to this gorgeous cafe by the river. It had the kind of view I loved - looking out onto the water.

When I clicked on the photo's of it though, it looked like someone had set a shipping container down in the middle of nowhere, and all I could see around it was dirt as far as the eye could see. Hmm..nice view, but where were all the grass and trees? 

So I found another place, described as being in an enchanted garden! Happy with my choice, I emailed her the details and we decided to meet at 1pm the next day.

I parked, just as she called saying she was parking. Great!

"I'm parked right next to the playground." I said.

"So am I!" she replies.

"I'm staring at the red spiderweb climbing thing."

"Umm, I'm looking at a white one"

"Are you near the cafe?"

"Yes it's to my left."

"It's to my right, I'll walk around. Are you looking at the river?"

"What river?? I'm in a garden!!"

After a lot of confusion and texting each other the local "Where am I now" map, it turned out that she was at the cafe I had originally wanted to go to! It was 5 kilometres (3 miles) away!

I asked her how on earth she had ended up there - I hadn't even mentioned that I had been looking at it. She said "That's just what popped in my mind when you said the name of the cafe, it's where I thought you meant."

"Well I did want to go there because of the view, but I'm really not sure about all that dirt for miles around it."

"What dirt? There is a huge park, playgrounds, a walkway, a waterpark, it's gorgeous!" Clearly it's an old photo on the site!

I LOVE that her energy responded to my energy, rather than mere words in an email - meanwhile my energy obviously thought 'This is the place you really want to go to, trust me there's grass and trees as well as the view!"

So aside from yet another lesson in: "follow your first intuition" it was such a clear indicator that people, and life, are responding now to our energy and intentions more than ever. Logic and words are taking a back seat to what your heart truly wants and needs for you.

Have any of you got a story like this?

Solar Flares injecting bonus energy

With 7 M Class Solar Flares over the past few days and 1 X Class in recent hours, no matter the kind of week you have had I'm sure it has been an energised one!

For some of you that may mean lots of physical energy and mental clarity. For others it means just the opposite, and that is because these flares act as a kind of 're-wiring you exactly in the way you need' influence. If you need rest, they try to get you to rest, so you are going to feel lethargic. If it is time to act, they will give you that booster shot of motivation and inspiration you need.

It is also common to feel a mixture of the two: that is, a lot of adrenal action pumping through you, while the mind is feeling unable to focus or concentrate or anything. This is usually a good sign to just slow down and take one hour/minute at a time. Sitting down for a few minutes as you focus on your breath going in and out works miracles when it comes to regaining a sense of balance.

Flares are also emotional clearing machines - old anger/grief/issues can arise out of nowhere for the purpose of being addressed and transmuted. Ask that if these feelings are not yours, or if they no longer serve you, to please leave and go to where they now belong.

There is a momentum this year unlike any other year before. We are all being urged forward to step it up a level. So for some people this means looking at issues that you've never looked at before. For others it means gaining clearer, deeper insights into stuff you have looked at a hundred times! This year we are being called to embody all that we have learned about ourselves, and this can mean owning our power, taking action around that dream, or just living a simpler, healthier life moment by moment.

Solar and astrological influences inject bonus energy into these already powerful waves, and there are a host of them playing their role right now! From the Sun flaring away, to the upcoming March 16/17 Uranus/Pluto square - the final one in a series of 7 that have been occuring since 2012, to the huge 20/21 March Solar Eclipse Equinox!!

All of these alone = massive inner and outer transformation. Together they are making March be yet another pivotal month in what is a pivotal year. It is sending us all in the direction we all most need to go in, in order to live a life that feels most true to our Soul's highest calling, truth and purpose.

How are you all feeling?

The Sun has joined the Full Moon Party

The Sun is in cahoots with this Full Moon with three M Class Solar flares in the last 24 hours! Well that hasn't happened in a while - no wonder we are all buzzing with energy (and emotion).

So many people have been feeling the intensity of this Full Moon in a greater way than usual, and with many of us now picking up on Solar Flares even before they happen, it explains why we've known for a couple of days that this Full Moon was going to be huge. (Aside from the other astrological influences as mentioned in my post below).

If you are yet to read it, my Full Moon post, written pre-flares, is here: http://ow.ly/K0C4L

Delays: your Soul's chosen detours

When we consciously want something, for example a love relationship, a certain level of success or some other life change, if it is not in our lives it is not always because of some big block or issue. Sometimes it is because we truly, honestly are choosing to delay that new change, on a deep heart and soul level. Perhaps not forever, and perhaps not even for a month or day more. But it is a peaceful moment when you realise....ahhhhh, so I did choose my current situation, and this is why.

Most of you reading this know that on some level we 'choose' our experiences, yet still certain situations are harder than others to accept. It is really comforting and empowering to connect with the part of you that has chosen a situation - and hear directly WHY you have.

Now yes, sometimes when we want something we don't have there are patterns and issues to face. Other times there are other people's free will and life paths to consider that differ from what you consciously would have chosen or preferred to unfold. And there are times where what we want, is not actually what our Soul wants, and is not truly meant for us. Today we are not talking about those instances - we are talking about things that are meant for you, that are for one reason or other seeming to be held at arm's length.

You can connect with the part of you that is holding something at arm's length, delaying something you are wanting, either through journalling with that aspect, or meditating and having a dialogue with this part of you. I always like to give the aspect a name like Independent Isabel or Hiding Harry. Trust yourself. You know how to receive answers from yourself, trust what comes.

It makes it so much easier to accept that part of you, to love that part of you, and to relax/surrender/trust knowing that if you chose this situation for a certain important reason, you will also eventually end up on the path where what you desire comes to you, which you also promised yourself.

Your Soul knows what he or she is doing - even if your conscious self sometimes has no clue!

Have any of you had the experience of something being delayed, only to later realise once it finally arrived/happened "Oh thank goodness this didn't come earlier, I wouldn't have been ready"? (I definitely have!)

Share your stories here to inspire others in the same boat now!

Relentless transformation

Emotional releases are likely right now - it is the Full Moon after all, and a super-charged one at that. Releases are cleansing and transformational, helping you to see yourself or another in a clearer way, allowing you to let go of some sadness or hurt, and move forward with more space for greater freedom, and love for yourself.

This Full Moon in Virgo is absolutely pulsing with Transformation Energy. Partly because Pluto, Mr "Get in your Power" is aspecting it. Partly because Uranus, Mr "I will come out of left field and move you ten squares across the chess board before you know what hit you" is aspecting it. And partly because it feels like the Shift has decided to kick into high gear this year, moving us all along at super-speeds at every given opportunity. 

In many ways, I feel like more has happened in the past 2 months than in the past 2 years. For some of you this may mean dramatic external changes, for others it is all about inner changes and for a lot of us it is both.

If you are experiencing this, you are probably finding that there is not a lot of daytime down-time. That is, days where the waves of change aren't so intense allowing us to integrate all these changes. However you can be sure that integration is indeed happening - most likely when you are asleep at night, and your conscious mind is nicely snoozing and out of the way.

Even though the theme of the year so far seems to be a relentless push to take 'who we are' to a new physical and vibrational level, there is simultaneously a very calm energetic influence within and around us. We are riding the waves higher and faster than ever, yet doing so in a kind of zen way, trusting where the wave is taking us, knowing it will take us where we need to go, knowing it will all unfold in the perfect way, at the perfect right time.

As much as we are being compelled to move forward, we are also being urged to take time to stop and smell the roses along the way. This may seem contradictory but the two actions are now coming from the same source: high-vibrational waves of love that do not have the same rule book as our former head-based frequency. Our momentum forward is being fuelled by synchronicities, divine guidance, heart-led intuition, heart-based feelings, and a more easeful, vibrational attraction of all that we truly need.

How are you feeling?

Weekly Webinars!

Hi everyone,

I am pretty excited because this morning I did my very first live webinar!! Even though I've done lots of Youtube videos, this was the first time I broadcast via a live 'Hangouts on Air' so I thank you in advance for your understanding as I'm on a bit of a learning curve.

The webinar was part of a weekly series for my Let Love In participants, but it is up on YouTube now for anyone to watch. I take you through a short meditation on this week's theme which is Connecting with Self, I discuss the week's topics, and go into a Q&A about why we repeat certain patterns.

I LOVED doing this, and will be introducing a Weekly Webinar Series for my regular Energy Message Topics in April!

Onto technical stuff....first thing I noticed in the playback is there was WAY too much time on the Let Love In Daily Summary image, so next time I will toss to and fro between that kind of image and me talking to you,to make it more engaging!!

Hope you enjoy it!

I welcome any suggestions for topics that you would like me to cover in the April Weekly Webinar Energy Message Series. Woohoo how exciting!!!

Here is the link if you can't view the above: http://youtu.be/IgRRw2NxDrM

If you would like to enrol in the current Let Love In, today is Day 1 so there is still a tiny window. Please go here to register

Love Dana
