It is time for the new moon again and this one looks like it is asking us for action! Lots to be done to turn things around and it’s up to each of us to create the change! Go for it…Here is the article. Enjoy!
One thing I’ve noticed over the last few years is how it seems we humans have stopped asking questions about life and about who we are or why we are here. We seem to have settled into a mundane life where we get up in the morning and shuffle ourselves off to work for eight hours and then shuffle back home when the day is over. Everything we do is automatic and demands very little thought from us. It is almost as if our brains have atrophied from lack of stimulation. Because we have forgotten to question ourselves, we have begun to loose sight of who we are, we just exist and do as we are told.
How can we know ourselves if we do not ask questions about who we are or why we are here, what is our purpose and most importantly, am I happy with the way I’m living? What if we are not happy and don’t even realize it and waste half our lives living in a way that goes against who and what we are simply because we never stopped to ask ourselves those important questions? It never even occurred to us. That is not uncommon. The important questions I believe we should be asking ourselves at least once a year are ‘Am I living my life in the best way possible? Am I making myself happy, is how I’m living making a positive, happy effect on those around me, am I being the best person I am capable of being?’
Why have we stopped being ‘Inquiring minds want to know’. Have we grown lazy as life has become easier? Perhaps it has become too much effort to ask these questions as that would require action on our part to be who we wish to be and we really would rather play on our smart phones. I’m not sure how or when we detoured off the path towards wholeness, but we have for sure. It feels as if we have ceased caring about who we are or how we present ourselves to the world. This has slipped into our way of life because we have forgotten to embrace morals or principles and by not adhering to such ideals we have lost our grasp on respect as well. If we don’t know ourselves how can we can about ourselves and if we don’t care about ourselves how can we care about anyone else?
If I could have just one dream come true I would want for humanity to regain its innate desire to question life and oneself. We were born curious, as babies we crawled about through life observing everything, touching everything, eating everything even when we shouldn’t. It was our infants way of trying on life, seeing what was worthy of our attention, what felt good and what felt bad. So why have we stopped thinking this is important for us to continue? Have we gotten to where we no longer feel we have anything else to learn? Have our egos taken over and led us astray?
I think a great deal of the insanity we see gripping the world today comes from a lack of awareness. So many people haven’t got a clue about who they are or what they want. So few people are asking questions because if they aren’t personally engaged in life why bother? But this lack of curiosity is having a huge effect on the world and not in a positive way. Spend some alone time with yourself and ask yourself some questions. Am I living my life the best way I can? Am I happy? Am I living my dream or did I abandon it? How can I help leave the world a better place before I depart? Does my being have a positive impact on the world or am I making it worse? It’s important for us to know the answers to these questions.
Blessings and love to all ❤
In light of all the insanity going on in America right now, may I humbly suggest to everyone that they place their focus fully on living each moment they find themselves in. Stay in the present moment. I don’t like to give out suggestions as a rule, but there needs to be another voice out here in the darkness that speaks to truth as Main Stream Media sure won’t! The wisest and safest thing we can do for ourselves to get through all of the trauma being crammed down our throats every single day, would be to turn off our tv sets or at least by pass the news stations. You will not be getting actual news, you will be getting someone else’s views of the news and in this day and age, those views are biased and deeply corrupted. Just my opinion. In my world, knowledge is power, but we best make sure that the knowledge we are ingesting and claiming as our perceptions, our reality, is backed up by facts and it is truthful! If one never receives truthful awareness of what is going on in the world, how can they possibly prepare themselves and stay safe for whatever comes their way?
I am thoroughly ashamed of the political structure dominating our lives right now. The grand standing, the misinformation, the theater taking place at this very moment, has no place in society in the 21st century. We should be well beyond this lower frequency thinking we are displaying which embraces hate, fear, and dishonesty and is completely lacking the ability to see the bigger picture for ALL not just a few. It is both ugly and extremely harmful. What politicians are doing to this country right now is so monumentally damaging and yet they haven’t got a clue what their sick and violent rhetoric is doing to our psyches. Then again maybe they do. I rather believe they are so lost in their closed minded thinking they are totally unable to even entertain a new way of viewing life and how it should be. They cannot see what they are inflicting upon a society of innocent people, they cannot get out of the box.
I hope I can encourage everyone to step back, unplug, rejoin the great outdoors and place our focus on what is good in our lives and stop dwelling on drama we can really do nothing about. Fear based thinking is one of the lowest frequencies we humans vibrate at, is it not time to climb up the ladder and finally raise our frequency up out of fear and hate and violence into a more peaceful frequency that centers around being loving and giving and kind and truthful and compassionate? Why is humanity so complacent to remain mired in the darkness and pain when by awakening our thoughts and hearts we can move forward and proudly become more of who we can be. Have we lost the desire and challenge to be more? I personally have not and I hope all of you out there have not as well.
I send prayers to not only those who are grieving great loss today from the mass shootings, but I send prayers out to all of humanity that we wake up soon and realize what is really going on and we start thinking for ourselves once again! The greatest gift you can give yourself is to awaken your heart and mind.
Blessings and love to all,
Cosmic Weather Report August 2019:
Earthing the Fire
by Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax
August begins with more than half of all planets in fire signs, and ends with more than half in earth signs. Shifts from one element to another in the course of a month are common, but not to this extent.
Fire is the element of individuation; the burning need for you to become the person you were born to be. With fire high in the first half of August, you’re summoned to become as true to yourself as you can, to ignore the reasons why you can’t rise to your fullest capacity, and reach down in to release the creative dream you came here to manifest.
When fire hands the torch over to earth in the second half of August, the emphasis shifts toward the creation of earthy forms and structures to channel those fiery creative energies. Earth asks you to take your dreams seriously enough to find ways to help them happen.
When you mine the deeper layers of your dream and
construct practical channels for its release, life transforms from obligation and drudgery to ongoing enactments of love in motion. The release of your fiery soul force is contagious. It gives our species a chance to outgrow its folly and awaken to its higher wisdom ~ and there is no higher wisdom than love.
From fire to earth this month we reenact the soul’s journey from spirit to flesh, reminding you of who you are and what you’re here for. As so many worldly things collapse and crumble, we have a rare opportunity to write new stories in place of the old: stories of love and change, to replace tales of ignorance, lack and fear. Dare yourself to dream new dreams, real dreams, practical dreams to get our world back on track.
