FRIDAY’S POEM FROM RHYTHMS AND CYCLES: Phoenix Moon

November 21, 2014 Leave a comment

As I write the Old Moon has another day of life. We are about to enter another cycle of the Moon’s appearance to us as she orbits our world and the Sun. The Moon is exactly conjunct the Sun tomorrow, Saturday, November 22 at 7:32 am EST. And then we have a New Moon and the cycle repeats.

I don’t know if you feel the energy of the Moon as she goes through her cycle each month. I sure do. And I celebrate this cycle and all of her phases to honor her, life and the rhythms we all experience. I have written many poems to the Moon. Today’s is a new one for you to tap and experience.

Phoenix Moon

Bright day, heavy energy
As the Moon races, just ahead,
The Sun eating the distance
With every pulse between them.

The beat is felt if not heard –
The heavy sound too low
To press on human drum.
The closing gap pinches

The visible sliver of Grandmother
To nothing in the distant East.
Early morning darkness deepens
With her loss of limb.

Old Grandmother Moon again
Loses her race with her Son.
He dismembers and burns her
In his brightness, his sizzle.

But wait! In three days passing
She reappears on the other
Side of the world – resurrected!
Phoenix Moon is new. Blessing!

Remember The Law of Remembering – Richard’s Commentary

November 13, 2014 Leave a comment

 

The Mystic Message published by Rosemary and posted by me yesterday was a powerful one, as we might expect from The Sirius Mystery Temple Teachers. This “Law” can be applied to everything, from the three-dimensional fragment of the Universe we think we live in, to our expanded and expanding Consciousness, our “memory” of who we really are!

Here’s the crux of the teaching:

…remember that you are One with the Universe and that all that exists, exists in you. All dimensions are within your Consciousness. All that you seek is already existing within you.

THIS is The Law of Remembering.

And:

Consciousness is the essence energy of the Universe. The attracting force that brings together parts of Potential Energy with other parts is called ‘LOVE Energy.’ It is not that the attraction is the result of a wish to fill a void. It is, rather, that the Potential Energy is so full of LOVE that it wishes to express as Manifest Energy and it, therefore, creates Manifestation Energy to do so.

This is not a simplified view of the “reality” of this Universe we occupy! But it is a real view, or as “real” as we can get with our still very limited understanding of the deep physics behind the “reality.”

For an excellent presentation of this very subject go see “Interstellar” – the movie that was just released last week. Rosemary channeled the message from The Sirius Mystery Temple Teachers the middle of last week. We published the blog post on Friday morning, November 7. We went to see the movie yesterday, November 10 at a local theater and we were blown away!

“Interstellar” is a dystopian tale of an environmental disaster that is destroying humanity through the destruction of the food chain. A small, secret group of NASA “refugees” are working on a way to save at least a remnant of humanity by going off-world. The beauty of the movie is the science behind it. It is as much up-to-date as any movie in my recent memory, includes excellent teachings in relativity, quantum mechanics, time-bending and what might be possible in space-warped interstellar travel!

But here’s the kicker: everything presented in the movie was extraordinarily in-line with Rosemary’s channeled message! We were both in awe as we watched the unfolding drama. And the movie is so well done, from cinematography to special effect to the sound track to the science.

AND, they addressed LOVE as a force intricately involved in the creation and evolution of the Universe!

Go see the movie! And then come back to Rosemary’s blog article and read it again. We plan to see the movie again soon. It is that good!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Start with ‘We Are All One’

November 5, 2014 Leave a comment

You’ve heard that ‘seeing is believing,’ right? The truth is that ‘believing is seeing.’

What you believe becomes the lens through which you view everything.

What do you believe? Let’s start with the folks around you, your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, the community, your country. Are they all ‘others’ to you? How about people who live on the other side of the world? The other side of the political spectrum? The other skin colors? The other religions?

The more we focus on ‘otherness’ the less we understand about who we really are as individuals. Yes, we have separate physical bodies, but we are all one. We are all one big organism called ‘humanity’ on Earth.

Even the teachings about how we are all connected are trying to explain a concept that goes deeper than that. We Are All One. There really is no separation.

If you’ve heard anything about new science, quantum physics, you’ve probably heard that science understands that particles that seem to be discrete and individual somehow seem to know what other particles are doing without a connection network to transmit that information. (Or, at least, a connection that we can describe and understand at this time!) But if the particles (individuals) are all a part of one organism (consciousness) then maybe they don’t need a communication network. They just ‘know’ what is known elsewhere.

Now, for humans, this can get trickier because we like to think that we are unique individuals and we LOVE the word ‘mine’! From the time we first figure out what that word means, as toddlers, we use it to lay claim to what we perceive is ours, without regard to what anyone else wants. Just ask a toddler to care that you want to play with that toy that they’ve declared is ‘mine’ and see how far you get!

Grownups can evolve beyond this narrow vision of ‘mine’ into ‘ours,’ if they try. We learned to share in kindergarten, we practiced being a sibling or a couple or a family member or a community and we learned about the concept of ‘for the good of all.’ Not everyone, though, has embraced that concept.

In the midst of an election in a democracy, like the US, we hear all sorts of rhetoric and, sadly, lies. Everyone running for office claims to have the solutions for every problem. We often hear fear-mongering to get you all riled up about holding onto what you claim is ‘mine’ vs sharing with others, the concept of ‘ours.’ To back up these claims there are often statistics or stories that are concocted without a basis in fact.

The little toddler inside each voter reacts with that old idea of ‘mine’ and can be blindly led down a path that causes them to vote against their own best interest because they are so focused on ‘others’ trying to take what is ‘mine’ that they forget to analyze, calculate, do the research and educate themselves.

Start with We Are All One. Everything really is connected, so connected, in fact, that it is One. We can share. Just as we learned in kindergarten, it is okay to take turns, to share, to participate together so that everyone is taken care of.

Not only do we have privileges as human beings on Earth at this time, we also have responsibilities to each other and to the Earth. In a democracy, citizenship includes being educated and caring about others who share this democracy with you. As Earthlings, we share the planet with many others and so we have a responsibility to care for and about the Earth.

Get out the glass cleaner and clean off the lens through which you are looking at the world. Start with We Are All One!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Change, Transformation and Transition

October 22, 2014 Leave a comment

My email inbox is full of invitations to ‘change,’ ‘transform,’ ‘uplevel,’ etc.  I’ll bet yours is, too.  Are you ready to change?

The only constant in life IS change, but sometimes we slide into change or it is thrust upon us by circumstances outside of us.  Has this been happening to you?

Conscious Living means being aware of your Self, your Purpose and taking charge of the changes you make in your life.  Awareness is key to moving consciously through any change, small or gigantic.  Observing yourself in the midst of a sea of change can be a way to weather the change while feeling peace inside.

It is not just you as an individual going through changes that is the energy of this experience of the 21stCentury.  We are all, whether conscious or not, experiencing the great shift that is the transformation of Planet Earth.  Nothing is staying the same.  Hold onto your hat!

At the time of these great shifts we have an opportunity to allow the change to be transformative.  We can move ourselves, our understanding, our spiritual selves into a higher level of functioning on the Planet.  We are really RESPONSIBLE to the Planet and her inhabitants to experience this kind of transformation.

When circumstances invite you to change, do you make a graceful transition to the next level?  Or do you resist, fighting the change until it becomes inevitable and then you just give up?  How well do you accept change?

Sometimes it is easy to change when we are the instigators of the change and we see the destination toward which we are moving.  We can be positively elegant when we change in this manner.

At other times, we fight, we resist, we try to ignore, we might even try to go backward as we argue against a change.  Energetically, these tactics make that which we are resisting more powerful over us.  The transition to the new level becomes difficult, tedious, sometimes even painful.

As the Borg say (for all you Trekkies out there), ‘Resistance is futile.’

When we are in the transition stage of change in our lives, we can experience the most energy of the transformation that is taking place.  Think of yourself as a caterpillar shifting into the butterfly.  It might be a process that is frightening, uncomfortable, even unwanted.  But what a beautiful result there is after the transformation!

The entire Planet Earth is transitioning now into the New Earth.  Each human being is evolving into the New Human.  You can resist or transform.

This evolutionary process requires a lot of changes in our daily lives.  We are being called to become more conscious of who we are, our authentic selves.  We are being invited into the transformative process to partner with others who are willing to move forward into the state of being a New Human.

Life can become simpler for us if we shift out of old ways of being, of operating in the world.  Relationships become more intimate when we drop the pretense, the masks we used to wear.  We create conscious businesses.  We make conscious choices.  We listen with our hearts.  We collaborate and support.

This transition is glorious.  Each of us is emerging as a beautiful butterfly.  Celebrate!

PS: The recording of The Oracle Speaks channeled message from last week is now available. The Divine Feminine offered incredible guidance for our evolution and support for our change, transformation and transition! They offered amazing help as we begin to become aware of our Cosmic Bodies  and expand into our Cosmic Auras! The recording can be purchased from Rosemary’s  website: TheScientificMystic.com

New Moon in Virgo I Ching Divination

August 25, 2014 Leave a comment

As I posted earlier this “Moon-day” the Moon and Sun were conjunct at 10:13 AM EDT just inside Virgo (about 2 1/2 degrees). As I do just after this New Moon event I cast an I Ching Gua, the six line hexagram of the ancient Chinese approach to divination. I do this to get a sense of the energies coming in with the New Moon. For me this is a meditation practice and a way to tap into the “inner” to determine what is going on in the “outer.”

Today’s divination is very auspicious;  the energies the New Moon brought in are strong yet balanced; and even as they change (means change) the auspiciousness of the time grows!

Da Xu-Great AccumulationThe initial Gua I cast (I use the 50-yarrow stalk method) is pictured here. The bottom trigram is Qian meaning Heaven. These were all 7s, strong Yang lines forming a very sturdy foundation for the month. The upper trigram was formed by two 8s and a 9; two strong yin lines and a weak Yang line. The top 9 then shifts to an open Yin line forming the new “accomplished” Gua (see that hexagram below).

The initial Gua is composed of “Mountain” over “Heaven” and means “great accumulation.” In the sequence of the 64 hexagrams that compose the I Ching great accumulation follows “Without Falsehood.”  The implication is “when truthful there is great accumulation of virtue.” And with virtue comes great power, wealth and prosperity.

We are entering harvest time. It will be a good, even great harvest.

In the hexagram Heaven is below Mountain. The image is of clouds hanging within the mountains accumulating cooling and nourishing rain – a majestic image! And this is a good sign for continuing fair weather for the abundant harvest.

Tai-AdvanceWhen the top line shifts from Yang to Yin the accomplished Gua is Tai which means “advance.” It is pictured here:

To capture an image of this, one sees that the top line of the initial Gua “opens” as it changes. This opening lets the accumulation of virtue flow out in “advancement” and we use the accumulation to good purpose. The accomplished Gua means it is favorable to take action.

Quoting Master Alfred Huang, author of my main reference, The Complete I Ching, “Tai is one of the most auspicious words in Chinese.” It can mean: “more than great, peace, safety, good health, progress, proceeding, and advancing.”

Continuing to quote from Master Huang, here is King Wen’s decision for this Gua:

Advance.
The little is departing,
The great is arriving.
Good fortune.
Prosperous and smooth.

The keys to this accomplished Gua are union and harmony. Within the structure of the hexagram, the two trigrams, Heaven below and Earth above, are coming together in union. This is why the word Tai is so auspicious: when Heaven unites with Earth blessing and bliss are attained. And humans are the connectors. As the Taoteching states: “Heaven is great, Earth is great, Humans are also great.”

It is a time of unity and harmony. As we advance in the year toward the Autumnal Equinox, as this Moon-cycle begins to wane, we can move into the balance point in the Sun-cycle.

Harvest is great. Accumulate great virtue over the next few weeks and on that strength advance toward balance and harmony!

PS: As always, my dear friend and awesome astrologer, Gloria Hesseloff writes the perfectly synchronous newsletter on this Virgo New Moon; quoting: Virgo energy asks us to become highly competent in a skill that is of value to others. We then generously offer it as our high service. Your specific gifts are truly needed at this significant moment in history. The goal is to do this without arrogance (humbly) but also without self-deprecation. This can be a tricky task…

Through “great accumulation” of virtue we make gains “of value to others.” From this accumulation we “advance” and offer our gains as “our high service.” And we do this from a point of harmony and balance!

HAPPY NEW MOON-DAY!

Here’s a quote from Rosemary’s newsletter:

New Moon is today, Monday, August 25 at 10:13 am EDT. This is when the Sun and the Moon meet up at the same degree of the sign of Virgo and the Moon is barely visible in the night sky. For the following 14 days the Moon grows and helps us to attract growing things into our lives. Make a plan for what you will be inviting into your life as the Moon grows to Full this time.

As with all New Moons I will cast an I Ching Gua (six-line hexagram of open (yin) and closed (yang) lines) to get a sense of the energies coming in with the new moon and lasting for the next month (moonth) while the Sun is in Virgo.

Since the the Moon is exactly conjunct the Sun just after my usual publishing time for this blog, consider this a place-holder until I “read the sticks.” Meanwhile enjoy the refreshed energy as the Moon begins to emerge from the Sun and moves on in her waxing journey!

CRYSTALS AND YOU – Richard’s Commentary

July 31, 2014 Leave a comment

As I write this we are in Florida visiting friends on our way to a conference in Orlando. The items we brought, combining housewarming (our friends moved here recently) and host gifts, are crystals. In fact our son, who has been collecting crystals since he was two, sent a special quartz crystal he had found in Raleigh, NC, to our “adopted grandson”, aged 6, as a special connection. We are all tapping into the “wisdom of the worlds.”

Here is the paragraph from Rosemary’s channeled message from The Divine Feminine that I most resonate with:

Not all people alive at this time are ready to hear the Wisdom of the Worlds as transmitted by these crystals, and, so, they will deny the value or, indeed, even the idea of crystals as messengers. They will dismiss crystals as ‘new age fads’ or ‘just fancy rocks.’ When you hear this from a person, or if you feel this yourself, know that this attitude comes from a fear of the challenge of personal growth. If you are connecting to these words then, Dear One, you are ready for personal growth through a personal relationship with the Crystal Kingdom.

Many people are awakening to this special and “personal relationship.” We have another friend in the Annapolis area who hosts a crystal grid and sing bowls meditation once each month. These experiences are some of the most powerful meditation experiences I have had recently. And I am pleased and impressed by the number of young people who are attending. Several help with the hundreds of pounds of crystals set up each month. They are clearly ready for the “personal relationship.”

What does this mean exactly? I can’t explain it with rational thought or logical words. These are feelings. There is a vibrational experience and sensibility that works on trans-rational levels. It could be loosely compared to intoxication, but it is a trip of the mind/soul/spirit rather than a chemical trip of the body. And there is a Universe of “information” available on these trips. I am still processing my last experience with the crystals.

Do you have a crystal with which you resonate? If so you can simply sit with it. Hold it in any way that feels comfortable. Let your mind drift. Follow your breath. Then begin to gently tune in to the crystal. This is usually a very subtle process; a sensitive attunement with the energy radiating from the crystal. It is a delicate “listening” experience…listen with your entire person, especially inside. Tune out the five senses and “listen” with your heart. After a little while set the crystal aside and record what you experienced.

If you need to find a crystal to discover a “personal relationship” you can simply locate a “rock shop” in your area; you can find very inexpensive and yet powerful crystals almost anywhere these days (the Crystal Kingdom is seeking these relationships). Go into the shop in this “listening” mode described above. First sense the overall feeling of the shop. If it feels dead, low energy, or if you sense any negativity from the shopkeeper, choose another shop. But in my experience it is rare for a shop with crystals to have negative energy. To find “your” crystal simple scan the collection in the sensitive mode, listening with your heart. The crystal will call out to you!

Of course, if none of this makes any sense to you, you may not be ready for this “personal relationship.” And that’s OK too! We are all growing and developing at our individual rates. Remain in flow and patient!

For all of us, in all stages of development, the Crystal Kingdom is blessing us with their energy and messages!
