Mercury Direct: A Second Beginning to the New Year

How crazy has this Mercury Retrograde been?! Delayed flights, cancelled flights, lost keys, key mix-ups, computer crashes at the shop/bank/motor registry, computers acting erratic, delayed payments, schedules or other important things having to be delayed, miscommunications and plans going awry. This and more is just the stuff that has been experienced by us, friends, family or people I've talked to, and I know you all have plenty of your own stories to share!

Mercury is slowing down now, preparing to go direct on 25 Jan. It'll take a few days to start chugging along again, picking up steam over the next few weeks until he clears the shadow period on Feb 16. Anything that's been delayed will more easily resume, and the haze can start to lift from whatever has felt unclear.

So February is kind of like a second beginning to the New Year- which it always feels like anyway here in Australia with kids going back to school, the summer holidays coming to an end and regular routines starting back. For those of you in the Northern hemisphere, you too will feel this second beginning thanks to the Mercury effect!

Flashback Friday: Activating your 'Missing' Vibration

Flashback Friday is a new feature re-visiting a post or former Monthly Visions that is tapping me on the shoulder as relevant to right now. This one has been coming up strongly, I think because at the start of a new year we are so focused on new goals and long-held dreams and naturally wonder why the goals and dreams we've had on continuous New Year lists haven't happened yet! 

Originally posted in June 2011, Activating your Missing Vibration has so many gold nuggets appropriate for now!

There is so much strong, powerful energy circulating around us that I hardly know where to start! The strongest theme that feels to be underscoring everything is that of breaking through those ceilings that have kept each of us limited in one or more aspects of our reality. Stronger even than the busting through theme, is the dawning realisation around why it’s been so hard to make the quantum leaps we have been wanting forever and what we now have to do to ground and embody them.
            We all have something that we have found difficult to manifest or maintain once manifested. No matter how much we journal, meditate, get healings and say affirmations there seems to be one huge ‘quantum leap’ desire within everyone that constantly seems to be an arm’s length away.  This has been coming up so often in sessions this past month, with one primary message repeating itself over again: Your reality is like an album full of songs. If you want to add something that you are finding difficult to create or maintain (that is meant for you, that is aligned with your highest good) it’s because that song is not on your album. You have to add that song to your album, and not just add it but stamp it on there so it is a new and permanent part of your vibrational field. It is literally a new aspect of your being that has not been activated up until now, and that is why it has not been able to take form physically on the material plane.

If you have been trying to add something that has never been a song on your family album, know that this new vibration is completely unfamiliar to your ancestral energy field and so it literally has been unable to ‘stick’ onto your album in a permanent way. You have to upgrade your cellular wiring, literally infusing it with the vibration of the new aspects that you would like to invite into your reality field.
            The key words here are “infusing it with the vibration”. While it may appear that the love of your life or home of your dreams is the thing that’s lacking from your life, what is actually lacking is an activated connection to the vibration that your energy associates with the manifestation of that thing (and that is different for everyone). First figure out what the ‘missing’ vibration is exactly, and that’s where all that journaling and meditating, and all those healings and affirmations will help.  For example, if you want greater financial prosperity the vibration that is the missing link for you might be worthiness, stability, freedom, power or all of the above.  Abraham-Hicks tells us that if you want to manifest something you need to work out why you want it (eg do you want to feel more secure/more loved/more happy) and then work out a way to feel that right now. It’s also very helpful to work out why part of you doesn’t want it (eg fear of losing freedom, losing independence, being seen as greedy), because that will create major resistance toward letting your manifestation in. Most of this you all know, it’s basic Law of Attraction 101 yet we still have desired manifestations that aren’t manifesting.  Why? Trying to feel something that has never been on your album, is like trying to visualise blue when you’ve never seen blue. We might know that stability is our missing vibration, but if our cells don’t recognise that vibration it doesn’t ‘stick’ and thus we won’t be able to attract it or hold it on a physical level – until we activate it within our cells.

Just a note on any manifestation ‘delays’. Today we’re not talking about the Divine Timing factor which is very real for certain events (eg a specific date may be required by an incoming soul for its conception date), nor are we talking about desired things that aren’t meant for you. We’re talking about that which is desired and for your highest good, that which your soul is absolutely calling you toward. A call which is feeling stronger and sounding louder right now than ever before, and you feel at a complete loss as to what more you could possibly do to let it in. You may have found yourself saying lately something like: “Show me what it is I am not seeing.”

There is a story featured in the film ‘What the Bleep do we Know’ about a tribe of people unable to see ships anchored offshore, because the sight was alien to their usual reality. It wasn’t until a shaman stared out to sea, imagining what he was looking for, that he was finally able to make out the ships. It was only after pointing them out to others that eventually everyone could see the ships. This phenomenon is called perceptual blindness, based on a theory that our brains literally can’t see what we don’t understand, but because the shaman was used to expanding his vortex of perception he was able to open up to the new reality that already existed right before their eyes.

There is a similar phenomenon called inattentional blindness, where we don’t see something unless we are looking for it or expect to see it. Christian and I were in the city for his surprise birthday party one night, and I was trying to avoid the party destination until all the guests had arrived so he wouldn’t bump into any of them on their way there. We were casually strolling by the waterfront and it was only later that I found out that a group of our friends on the way to the party had walked right by us and, according to them, we both looked straight at them! They were mortified they’d been seen, and said they just kept walking like nothing happened and acted like they didn’t know us! Two even said they quickly thought “I’m invisible, I’m invisible!”  Christian and I both swear we did not see them! My intention was so strong that we wouldn’t bump into anyone, and he didn’t expect to bump into those particular friends because they’d already made up a story of where they’d be that night, that they literally became invisible to us! This really made me wonder what else is it that we aren’t seeing that is right in front of our noses? Starships? Our dream home? Things we don’t even have a name for yet?

So we know that if our brain can’t see what we don’t understand, or we don’t expect to see something, we won’t see it.  More to the point of today’s topic, our Law of Attraction ‘blind spot’ seems to be that we find it incredibly difficult to have something ‘stick’ to us that we associate with something that is separate to us. We see this regularly in people who win millions in the Lottery only to lose it all within a very short time period. They let the actual money in, but they couldn’t see or feel and thus activate the particular vibration they associated with having that much money whether that was a higher wealth consciousness, worth consciousness or freedom consciousness. One or more of those ‘songs’ weren’t on their cellular and vibrational album!

So the first step is being very aware of what your specific ‘missing vibration’ is, but the real quantum leaps happen once we fully, truly and cellularly OWN that vibration. Our cells can have a hard time owning a new vibration if it is very new to us personally, or ancestrally. It almost treats it like a virus, repelling it from our bodies as soon as it gets too close.  

An image the guides showed to help us own new vibrations – new ‘songs’ on our album - is to imagine the vibration like a golden light filling every single one of our cells, imprinting each cell with the new vibration. We are upgrading our cells to a ‘new normal’. While doing this, it is helpful to feel the new vibration and affirm it. Something I loved was a sentence Oprah said during her final show: ‘There is a common thread running through all our pain and suffering. Unworthiness. Not feeling worthy of owning the life you were created for.’  You are worthy of owning the life you were created for. Our soul’s highest potential life has already been created for us, by us, on a vibrational level. We keep it at arm’s length by not owning one or more bridges linking our physical reality to our vibrational reality. To manifest our soul’s highest potential life, we have to own the vibrations that are the missing links between the vibrational version and the physical version. 

If you want more financial prosperity, I’m sure you have been trying to feel wealthy, and think wealthy, and visualise yourself wealthy but what you need to know is that inviting more wealth into your life is not always necessarily about opening up to wealth consciousness. We all want more wealth for different emotional reasons. Ask what financial prosperity means to you and trust the words that pop into your head. If freedom comes up, this is what you want to infuse into your cells, imagining the vibration of freedom filling your every cell, imprinting itself into every cell. Use a sentence that works for you to help the process along eg “I allow myself to be free, I allow myself to own freedom, I open my every cell and every level to freedom consciousness, I am worthy of freedom”.
            I am fascinated by Epigenetics because this science has proved what we metaphysically already know – our cells carry the memories and beliefs of our ancestors. So take a look at some of the beliefs held by your parents and grandparents (and you will know by noticing the kinds of things they say, their general mentality toward life, the way they live their life etc) and acknowledge where your cells are repeating the songs on the family album. This will tell you what your ‘missing’ vibration may be.  Make your new song “I am worthy of owning stability”, “I am worthy of owning freedom”, “I am worthy of owning (whatever it is you can see your family haven’t owned)” Also, don’t forget all those family sayings that need upgrading. You might have to change generations of “Life is hard...a have to work hard to get anything” to “I am worthy of an easy, fulfilling, abundant life.” Remember, this time it isn’t about the affirmation itself, it is about imagining the vibration of this new mentality infusing each and every cell.
            It is a super powerful time to invite, add and own new vibrations, and breakthrough old, limiting ceilings and preconceptions of what reality can be like.  If ever there was a time to imagine, see, feel and ‘lock in’ new vibrations, both for ourselves personally and for our world globally, now is that time. Now is the time to breakthrough old restrictive ideas around what life has to be like, and burst forward into a completely new paradigm where life is greater than we can even currently imagine possible. Now is the time to activate your inner Imagineer and really go for it – the energy of Now says nothing is impossible, nothing is not do-able, everything is possible and everything is do-able. We just have to stamp it onto our vibrational fields and get into the feeling space of knowing that that is our absolute destined reality and destination.  From there take inspired action whenever guided to do so. Inspired action is different to logical action in that it typically doesn’t involve the most logical route to a destination, but it does lead you down the easiest, most magical route.
           Now is the time for ‘all hands on deck’.  We are all a piece of the giant humanity jigsaw, and your piece makes a difference. Take some time to make your contribution to the next chapter in humanity’s evolution and new album. Say a prayer, light a candle, vision from your heart imagining what a beautiful, peaceful, harmonious world would look like. If you have a passion for animals, the environment, music, creativity, media, education, health or any other area, you might like to specifically focus on what those aspects of life look like in your ideal world. It doesn’t matter if you spend 30 seconds or 30 minutes, it is your heart-felt intention that counts. Just as you can activate a new vibration within your personal field so too you can help to activate a new vibration in our collective field. Don’t think that vibrational action is a bit of fluff that has no real impact on physical reality. It has tremendous impact (check out Dr Emoto’s work with water!).
            Whatever direction you are pulled to or called to this month, know that these winds of change are working to uplift you and upgrade you.  Bless them, thank them and breathe them in!

A New Year Thank You Message

A New Year message to say thank you for being here, and thank you for being you. There is a palpable energy in the air for 2016, it will be one of huge heart openings, growth and expansion as we prepare for a new 9 year cycle 2017-2025 - and so it may also be for some a year of letting go, closures, ending of chapters, and some discomfort where we find we have outgrown what no longer fits us. Ultimately though, it will be a liberating year as we start a new phase of flying free and forward.

I am so happy to continue doing the energy reports, messages, video's and courses, and look forward to creating even more this year to help keep you feeling inspired, strong, clear, supported and connected to your self, your soul, your truth and our greater non-physical reality that is the real power engine driving this whole show.

This site is here for you with lots of love and support, thank you for continuing your commenting and sharing as it helps so many.

Lots of love,
Dana x

Capricorn New Moon

This is our New Moon candle. Every New Moon we light this before dinner, and give thanks for all to come in the month ahead. It's a great way to connect as a family on our wishes and intentions. This is on top of our daily prayer before dinner giving thanks for all we have. It creates a really nice energy, and again is a few minutes in the day where we stop and appreciate life. It really puts things in perspective especially during times where maybe it's been a week full of bills or an emotional day.

Today's New Moon is in Capricorn, the steady mountain-climber of the zodiac. You may have a list of goals and dreams for the year, if not now is a great time to write it. From there, Capricorn is all about the action steps: how are you going to get there?

With each of your goals or dreams take a few minutes, eyes closed, and ask what do I need to know in order to make this happen?

Your attention might be drawn to a belief that needs shifting or a habit that needs changing.

Eyes closed again, ask what do I need to do? Write down any action steps that come to you, ignoring any critical or judgy inner voice.

Use this as a guide forward this month picking one or two do-able steps! 🌟🌟🌟

2016 Energy: Consciousness in Action

We ended 2015 with lots of people experiencing some major sliding doors moments, our family included. Potential or actual accidents that could have ended up much worse but for a few centimetres or seconds. In the aftermath of those events, I was so aware that here we were in this reality where everything worked out okay, but there was a very different parallel reality that had been averted where life was drastically changed.

This got me thinking. How many times has this happened for us as a collective here on Planet Earth? More specifically, how many times has it happened in recent years with particular regard to the ‘Shift’? We look around and think things could be a lot better, but when you experience a near-miss you realise things could be a lot worse to the point of it being lights out, game over (when it comes to life here).

What if life here, right now, is a reality much like the one in a movie where global disaster was averted at the last moment, meanwhile humanity have gone on blissfully unaware that things could have turned out very differently had that asteroid been a bit closer, or had that solar super storm shifted in our direction.  

What if our celebratory ‘we made it!’ party was not about waiting for the day when the world is suddenly perfect? What if it is about the day when we realise we have all been given a second chance (or millionth chance) to appreciate how much paradise is here right now, to know how much power we have right now, to make things better however we can, to help whoever we can.

Too often we underestimate what we as individuals can do to make a difference. We think, “I am one person, what difference does it really make what I do or don’t do?” Look at a jigsaw puzzle. Now see it is made up of 7 billion pieces. What if everyone thought their piece didn’t count? What if everyone thought their piece did count?

You make a difference whether you believe you do or not. Your piece contributes to what that overall picture looks like, whether you feel it does or doesn’t. You don’t have to do anything big. As my aunt reminded me yesterday “It’s the little things, and it is all little things.” It’s that one sentence, that one signature, that one smile, that one step, that one hug. A little thing to you can be everything to someone else.

We amp up our gratitude and appreciation for life when we experience tragedies and near-misses. We amp up our desire to live more fiercely, to love more deeply, to stress less and stop judging ourselves so harshly. What about those near-misses we don’t know about? It is reasonable to assume we have all had many. It is reasonable to assume the planet has had many. Are those near-misses worthy of that same gratitude and appreciation response? The same passion, love, self-care and compassion response? Of course they are.

As I write I’m thinking of that saying held by those with a good attitude who are getting older. Asked how they feel about aging they reply: “It’s better than the alternative.” As we look around the planet today with all its issues, we can see it’s not perfect. But it is still here. We are still here. And there is so much beauty. In people, in nature, in animals, in causes, in creative offerings, in life itself. So much beauty despite our many personal and global issues. Our issues do not define us, nor should they be ignored. They are not markers of failure, they are highlighters of that within us and around us seeking transformation. We can use them as catalysts for change, as guideposts indicating what needs shifting, what needs addressing, what needs our support, love and attention.

When a tragedy happens, your whole world changes including your perspective regarding what is and isn’t important in life. A ‘near-miss’ situation gives you a jolt asking: What are you doing with your life? Are you happy with everything? Are you appreciating what you have?

It is obviously preferable to get a ‘near-miss’ wake-up call than have to live through the alternative. What if that’s what we have received but haven’t quite realised? What if we woke up one morning, feeling a new appreciation for being here on Earth but unsure why? A lot of you have felt like this over the past one, two, three years. What if it’s because life on Earth could have gone one way but didn’t, and here we all are in this reality? Would we feel it on some level?  

The conditions present among humanity, among societies, within communities and within our own selves are far from perfect, far from a world that most of us have in our visions as more ideal. Our shift in consciousness isn’t, and never has been, a ‘get out of jail free’ card. It is an opportunity, an invitation, a calling, a booster even, asking us and compelling us to create the ‘something better’ that we know is possible. It also acts as a windscreen wiper for the lens through which we view everything. We can see more clearly, to act more wisely. We can feel more heartfully, to act more compassionately.

People wonder: how does a shift in consciousness change the real world. What affect does it have on, for example, companies that put profit and power ahead of ethics and consumer health?  Here’s the thing: consciousness, when experienced by physical humans on a physical planet, leads to inspired thought and action.

As an example, our farming practices and the food that has been consumed by much of the Western world was, and is, unsustainable on many levels particularly environmentally and health-wise. Millions of people are being prompted, be it by inner urges or outer Instagram feeds, toward a more natural way of eating that is in greater harmony with our bodies and planet. More of us are wanting to grow our own foods, cook with natural, ancient and superfood ingredients, and buy from local farmers who produce organic fruit, vegetables and meats.

A lot of us have foreseen the shift occurring now within food, health and wellness, yet the unknown was, what would trigger such a mass shift? An alternate parallel reality could have had some situation causing power grids to be knocked out world-wide, and that would definitely have forced everyone to start living in a simpler way, re-connecting to the community support around us. The fact that something other than a three year global power blackout, a potential scenario considered by seers and scientists alike, is triggering so many tells us something.

If there was always this destined goalpost, and here we are moving toward it on path A instead of path B, isn’t that a good sign? Rather than shifting due to a dramatic global event, it seems that other influences are jolting our consciousness – seen and unseen, physical and non-physical. It’s still a bumpy ride, there are still dire circumstances for too many, but every day more and more have the ‘all hands on deck’ mentality, pitching in and helping wherever they can.  Our Earthship hasn’t sunk, and for anyone thinking we are on a sinking ship well, grab a bucket and haul some water!

Here is what is sinking: the old world matrix will collapse, and is collapsing, not so much because those within it will have a sudden crisis of consciousness or some miracle or global disaster will happen overnight. More likely it will collapse because one by one people are unplugging from the old in big and small ways. This doesn’t mean that we get to leave behind the more difficult aspects of life and sail off into the sunset. It more means that we no longer buy into being told how to think, how to live, who to be afraid of, who to help and who to ignore. We are unplugging from a massive control system, and re-plugging into our own power source within connected to our greater Source above.

The enormity of that which needs changing around us can seem overwhelming, but if you are reading this you have to have felt what it is to be connected to your heart, to your truth, to the voice of your soul. It changes how you live, on a day to day basis. It changes your choices and decisions. It gives you tremendous power over what you choose to do with your puzzle piece. Imagine that power times millions and eventually billions. Your light helps the puzzle piece next to you see their own, and on it goes like dominoes in reverse, lifting each other up, one by one, faster and faster.

Self-care and community compassion

2016 feels like it will build on the self-care and community compassion theme we have started to see more of.

We are seeing mass shifts toward people eating and living healthier, cleaner and greener.

We are seeing more campaigns and movements seeking to end bullying and domestic violence, understand and support mental health issues, create equality for all regardless of gender, sexuality, race or religion, bring to justice perpetrators of sexual abuse, provide immediate assistance to refugees, increase awareness on scores of animal rights and environmental rights issues, among a zillion other initiatives occurring right now all over the world.

            All of the above has been going on for years among individuals and pockets of the communities. The difference now however is that all of this self-care and community compassion is going mainstream much like a video goes viral. It is becoming our new normal.

What are 3 (or more) things that you are being nudged to do with regards to self-care, things that you know always make you feel good?

Write these things down on a bit of paper and stick them up on your wall or inside the front of your diary, somewhere you will come across the list regularly. This isn’t a New Year’s Resolution exercise. It’s more an ongoing gentle reminder to yourself, something to notice every now and again as you walk out of your bedroom or open your diary cover. It’s a little quiet prompt from your Soul every time you see your list to remember what your Self needs.

What are 3 social or global issues you would love to make a positive contribution toward?

Write them down. Set an intention to look out for ways this year that you can make a difference in those areas. One of my sisters is passionate about animals, with one of her favourites being orangutans. She makes a dedicated effort not to buy products with palm oil in them, as the production of it is directly contributing to the rapid decline of our orangutan population. It’s the little things. On our own we can’t cover every issue, but we can all pick a few things that we feel passionate about and do our little thing toward it.

Year 9 in a 9 Year cycle

2016 is a 9 year, which is often associated with the ending of a numerological cycle, but in a 9 year we also see the beginnings of what the next 9 year cycle will be all about.  If we were to take a birds eye view of 2017-2025, we will likely see a continuation and increase in people unplugging from the system, becoming more sovereign, free, empowered and self-sustainable/locally-sustainable.
            The increasing push toward ‘random’ martial law trials and city lockdowns, under the guise of protection, in response to a threat funded and fuelled by ‘our protectors’ is predictable, energetically and otherwise. What does old energy within you do when you commit to a new habit? It flares up! It rebels! It resists! It gets pretty angry. No-one likes losing control, not any aspect within us and certainly no mega body outside us. And this is where we are at. Control over us on the one hand, and re-claiming our power and freedom on the other.
            The evolution of humanity has always played this game. We look back on history and see controllers controlling and being brought down. Society being repressed, then fighting for their freedom. Round and round we’ve gone. Different eras. Different countries and cultures. Same dance. Only it’s time to lift the needle off that record. We are so used to living without our power and freedom, we have come to believe that that is what it means to live life on Earth as a human.
            Imagine once upon a time that this planet had full access to all the channels of the universe, so that everyone here knew exactly who we were as a race, knew where we came from, knew that there were other beings on other planets in other star systems, knew what we ourselves were capable of as multi-dimensional beings.
            Imagine that once upon a time something was put over this planet. A kind of glass dome, or net, so that we had limited access, or even no access, to those other channels. Imagine switching on your tv and there’s only one channel, and that’s all you’ve ever known. You think that is how it is, and how it can ever be.
            Imagine that over time, this glass dome, this net, started to dissolve. A few people here and there started getting access to more channels. Then more people did. And more channels opened up.  
            People with no channels or access to certain channels look at people who claim to have other channels and think they are crazy. We can only know what we know, and what we don’t know can feel impossible. Or it can inspire us. “Well if he has the sports channel, maybe there is a sports channel, and if there is, I want that channel too!”
            As we travel through 2016, we will start tasting the energies of the next 9 year theme across 2017-2025. What would a world look like without that dome or net, or where it is so very, very thin as to be barely there? What would a world look like where the majority have access to scores of higher-frequency channels allowing us to remember who we are, and to live as we intended to live here: with freedom and power?
            We are going to see what this looks like – not as an intangible concept of consciousness, but as increasing amounts of tangible examples of what consciousness in action looks like.

Live fiercely

Love deeply

Claim your power and freedom

Appreciate what you have

Act compassionately

Practice self-care

Wishing you all a year in which you are kind to yourself and others, one in which you turn the light dial of your puzzle piece up to high.

Thank you for all of your messages and comments letting me know how much you appreciate the blogs and energy reports.  If you would like to make a donation to support them being freely provided you may do so here.
