New Vision for a New Cycle
Week Commencing 20th March
This week the Weekly Shamanic Guidance is New Vision:
“Evolution made civilization steward of this planet. A hundred thousand years later, the steward stood before evolution not helper but destroyer, not healer but parasite. So evolution withdrew its gift, passed civilization by, rescued the planet from intelligence and handed it to Love.”~ Richard Bach
Today we reach the peak of spring with the Spring Equinox, the ancient Celtic Solar Festival, when day and night are of equal lengths. After the Equinox, the days start getting longer until we reach the peak at the Summer Solstice on June 21st.
Saturn at the Galactic Centre
This year we are experiencing an epic shift on this Equinox that is affecting everyone. We are on a trajectory that seems unstoppable, as we hurtle towards almost certain planetary destruction, and we are reaching the place of no return. Things are spiralling out of control at an immeasurable rate and we are feeling powerless to stop it.
And yet, this crisis is igniting a shift in our consciousness, as we are forced to face the consequences of our collective actions. The situation is scary but we have to face it, and remember each one of us is a powerful force in this unfolding planetary story.
Fuelling this shift is Saturn, the planet of limitations and obstacles, that is now sitting at our Galactic Centre. Saturn is taking us beyond the illusion, and showing us another reality to understand the true concept of CONTROL, which is both painful and liberating. This Equinox we will realise that we cannot control our destructive collective psyche, but each one of us can control ourselves, and this is where true power lies.
Spring Equinox Focus
This Equinox we will be unconsciously faced with these questions:
What is my purpose?
What are my unique gifts and talents?
How am I offering them to humanity and the Earth?
If you are not taking personal responsibility, playing the blame game, and only serving yourself, you will feel depressed, fearful, stressed and abandoned.
A New Vision
This Equinox, and the new Zodiac cycle that begins on the Aries new moon on 27th March, will spark a New Vision for ourselves, and humanity. A vision of humanity that loves, honours and respects itself, each other, and all living things that share this planet with us.
We are the most conscious, and self-aware animals on Earth, and our role is to maintain the healthy balance of this eco-system for all living things. We must preserve and sustain life for future generations, and every human on this planet has a unique talent, gift and skill to offer that is aligned with this human collective destiny.
When we align ourselves with our purpose we can see which role we must play at this time on Earth. When we accept that we are a part of Nature and not apart from it we can go beyond the fear, the hopelessness, and the despair to realise each one of us is an important, vital part of the change that is needed.
Mother Earth Needs You
We have been given this task because only humans have the unique ability to consciously choose each action they take, and consciously understand the consequences of each action. We also have the unique ability to LOVE. Now, more than ever, Mother Earth needs people who are brave enough to choose Love instead of fear, and create a New Vision for themselves and humanity.
We are living in a time when the opportunities open to us are limitless. We are no longer bound by the political, national and social constraints of class, money, heritage, and colour of the past few hundred years. As the new cycle begins, now is the time to have a New Vision for yourself and start living your dreams aligned with your unique purpose to love and serve.
Just as a small acorn holds the vision of the mighty Oak, but must find the faith and courage to break through the cold darkness of the earth, and trust that the conditions are optimal when it reaches the light. Humanity must now hold a New Vision for itself, and find the faith and courage to break through the darkness and fear so that we can leave a healthy, vibrant planet for future generations.
I will end this Shamanic Guidance with the wise words of Anais Nin:
“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
SPRING EQUINOX RITUAL
Go out into nature barefoot and root yourself into the earth. Once you feel supported and connected imagine a hole opening at the top of your head and feel the Golden White Light direct from the Galactic Centre pouring into your head and flowing through your body until until your whole body is vibrating with this Golden White light from the Galactic Centre. Feel it cleaning and cleansing every cell, organ and muscle. Release any dark, negative, grey and shadowy parts out through the soles of your feet as black sludge, until you are beaming white light through every pore.
Take three deep breathes and let yourself drop into a deep meditative state. With your eyes closed send out a gratitude prayer, as you send your energy back to the Galactic Centre, creating a symbiotic relationship with this most powerful centre. See a new vision of yourself that is more aligned with who you truly are, and ask the Galactic Centre to help you become it.
Focus on your heart-centre and ask your question or guidance. Be patient for the answers, as they may not come straight away. If you do not receive any messages direct from the Galactic Centre, keep your eyes open, as they can often come in different ways; through dreams, another person, a book, the internet, intuition, a sign… the conduits for answers are endless. Know that you have been heard.
Spring clean your house thoroughly, open the windows and let the air circulate. Smudge all the corners with fresh sage while giving thanks for the present moment, for your wonderful home and for what is too come. This dissolves old and stale energy and creates space for new intentions.
Spring clean your life by clearing out old lovers, friends and people that are no longer serving you. When we clear out the old, we make space for new people and lovers to come in that are more aligned with who we are. We are all shifting consciousness, and some of us are waking up quicker than others, so let go of those who are still asleep, with love and compassion.
This is also a time for sowing seeds in the ground for future food or flowers. Be aware of this wonderful act of creation to produce sustenance, and use it as a powerful symbolism for planting your own visions and dreams into the earth, to nourish and nurture throughout the year until they produce fruit.
