NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

cats-eye-nebulaHappy Passover!  Happy Easter!  Happy Full Moon!  This has been a busy week.

I can’t count how many people talked about their Full Moon Headache with this one – I hope you weren’t one of them!  But learning to work with the Cycles of the Moon is an important aspect of Dimensional Living.  The ancients knew how to plant, harvest, live in harmony with natural cycles and we modern folks have moved away from this.  I honor what’s going on in the heavens and it does help.  These News segments are designed to help you know what’s going on so you can balance your life in harmony with nature.

Here’s what our friend, Chris Largent, professor of philosophy and astrologer, says about this time:  “The aspects of the end of this week represent a rupture in consensus reality.  In other words, what we take to be true about ourselves, our community, our nation, and our planet could be challenged or expanded (or both).  My best advice is that if we see an opening in the “medieval fort” of everyday, programmed awareness, we should run through that opening.”

I hope you are ready for the shifts that are coming and that you are thinking of who you will be as we leap forward!

We’ve just finished the Rainbow Balance Color Therapy Class in Maryland and are getting ready to offer the next session in a webinar format.  Would you like to learn how to use Color and Intuition for healing yourself and others?  Look for the new class in May!

I’ve been working on my own healing journey recently as I prepare for major changes/restructuring in my work.  Nothing’s wrong, I’m just clearing so that I can better serve as spiritual teacher/healer to the wonderful community that welcomes me.  Look for a lot more offerings of classes and group events.  I continue to work on my book which I hope to publish this Summer.

How are you healing?  Changing?  Restructuring?  Ask yourself what your ‘News’ might be.  It’s time to ‘run through that opening.’  If you haven’t had a Complimentary Discovery Session yet, Apply Here so we can explore what you are ready to shift!

Happy April Fools Day!  No tricks here.  Well, it’s not April 1st yet…

Surprise!!! – Richard’s Commentary

While thinking about my response to Rosemary’s article on this subject I received an email from a mentor/teacher/friend, a deep scholar and also a gifted astrologer, about the energies of the times we are experiencing. I’m quoting a bit of his latest offering to set the stage for my thoughts about surprises.

More on the BIG astrology now – it IS that important – from Chris

“The aspects of the end of this week represent a rupture in consensus reality.  In other words, what we take to be true about ourselves, our community, our nation, and our planet could be challenged or expanded (or both).  My best advice is that if we see an opening in the “medieval fort” of everyday, programmed awareness, we should run through that opening.

“The possibilities for expanding consciousness are huge.  But we have to choose to engage with those possibilities.  We have to step outside the fort and challenge things we take for granted.”

Chris Largent

 Surprise!!!  A “rupture in consensus reality” certainly has the element of surprise embedded in it! Wow! But what does this really mean?

We have been anticipating big shifts with all the thought-energy, the expectations generated around 2012.  While much of the hype is gone, many understand that the Winter Solstice, 2012, was a turning point, not THE EVENT itself. We are now in the midst of that long turn. Some are suggesting that we may see big shifts with the Summer Solstice as the transformation to a new era begins to unfold in earnest. And many astrologers are aligning events in the Heavens with the correspondences of ancient calendars to conclude big things are happening.

Beliefs are certainly shifting and rapidly. Just look at one example around the issue of same-sex marriage rights. No matter what side of this issue you might support there has been an incredible, rapid shift in American acceptance of the LGBT Community and their rights to equal treatment under the law! Consensus reality is reforming here in a surprisingly positive direction. Chris goes on to say:

“The consciousness doors that open now will allow for big inner and outer shifts through the summer of 2014 – but the opening is NOW.”

Rosemary has this to say about consensus reality:

“As a human being, it is easy to fall into the trap of always wanting to be in control of your life. That would be nice. But the Earth is inhabited by other human beings who also want to be in control of their lives. What happens when these two desires collide?”

What happens is, willing or not, consensus reality is reformed around that collision. Of course it doesn’t have to be a collision! Chris says:

“…we are like currents in a river.  In other words, we look at the world in terms of fluid processes (and whole systems).  If we look closely at our lives, that’s what we see: we flow within larger patterns, and we create patterns as our life-processes flow with other life processes.”

I love this analogy of lives that flow together, but there’s no doubt that there is colliding yet to come as we bump through the next months of transformation! As consensus reality dissolves around us we need to be prepared for the reformation of our reality. These are exciting times! And while I don’t always like surprises (I’m one of those people who likes to be in control) I am now at a stage of life where anticipation of big changes and moving forward on the evolutionary path of consciousness is very appealing.

What other cultural surprises might we anticipate? Well, they wouldn’t be surprises if we knew about them in advance! Are you prepared for the long predicted and anticipated shifts? Are you ready for the BIG SURPRISE?

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Surprise!!!

What is your attitude toward surprises?  Many people say they don’t like to be surprised. They want to know if there is a surprise party for them about to happen.  They don’t like change.  They don’t like the feeling of ‘not knowing.’  They don’t like to feel that they are not in control.

But what about loving surprises?  Loving that surprise party that a loved one engineered just for you.  Being thrilled when someone does something nice for you or gives you an unexpected gift.  How do you feel when that happens?

Life on the Earthly Plane is full of surprises.  Some of these surprises are as thrilling as that unexpected gift.  Some, however, are not so much fun.  Are you willing to accept the ‘not knowing’ as an essential part of life on Earth?

As a human being, it is easy to fall into the trap of always wanting to be in control of your life.  That would be nice.  But the Earth is inhabited by other human beings who also want to be in control of their lives.  What happens when these two desires collide?

Life can become chaotic through no fault of yours.  Or you can thrive on the drama that chaos creates.  Things can go smoothly for about a minute and then some new wrinkle is thrown into your day.  How do you react?

The important part of growing in your level of consciousness is to make peace with the understanding that you will never be in 100% control of your environment and the circumstances of your time on Earth.  Other people around you have free will and will sometimes make choices that will conflict with your desires, especially if one of your desires is for total peace and control over everything.

And sometimes Mother Nature decides to let you know that she is in control of her biosphere – that you are allowed to inhabit HER domain but she is ultimately in charge.  Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, winter storms, lightning – these are not under your control and yet they happen.  What is your response?

Are you reading these words and thinking that they conflict with the concept of ‘your thoughts create your reality’?  There really is no conflict, if you think about it deeply.

The point is not that people don’t sit around wishing for a huge storm to come and destroy their house.  But there are a lot of people who are worrying about that eventuality.  Worry sets up the same magnet of attraction as desire does – did you know that?  Thinking about what you don’t want does attract that very energy.

And thinking about what you do want has to have some caveats attached to it.  Not the usual, ‘is it realistic?’ caveat, which really means, ‘can you see the way to make that happen?’  But are you wishing for something that takes away the power of others to have free will?

I’ve heard people say that they are trying to work with the Law of Attraction but that other person still hasn’t changed into what they want them to be.  Hmmmmm……  What’s wrong with this picture?

How about understanding that not knowing HOW you will receive that which you are desiring allows the Universe to bring it to you in unexpected, surprising ways?  And if you are working with the Law of Attraction you must be honoring other Laws of the Universe, including the Law of Free Will of all individuals.  You do not have permission to try to make others change.

When you demand control of your environment, you limit the ways in which the Universe answers your requests.  Your thoughts are projecting an often unconscious request to keep things just the way they are.  And, yet, there are laws of the Universe about change being ever present.

Your thoughts are sending out energy that does create those storms and that chaos and we’ll talk about that later.  For today, remember this equation:

EVENT leads to your REACTION and then you choose a RESPONSE.

While you might not control all the events that happen [Surprise!] and your reaction is your immediate ‘knee jerk’ feeling, you DO control how you respond.  Put your energies into practicing Conscious Response – choosing the response that demonstrates your personal growth.  Then you can relax into making peace with the ‘not knowing’ and enjoy the ‘Surprise!’

NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

Gallaxy collisionThere’s a great sense of renewal and rebirth when I see the first flowers of Spring popping up through the ground that has been frozen all winter.  It’s the surprise of walking into the yard one morning and finding that first blossom.  I always feel energized and ready to start new projects as the trees are budding.

What are you doing this Spring to start something new?  Make a commitment to choose at least one thing new and follow through.

We’re having fun in the Rainbow Balance Color Therapy Class in Maryland.  If you aren’t local but would like to learn how to use color vibrations for healing yourself and others on all levels, then stay tuned and we’ll be offering it again as an online class.  Some of the students are continuing on for certification to use this system to help others improve their lives.  This might be just the tool to add to your coaching/healing toolbox so we’ll keep you informed of the upcoming dates.

I recently heard someone say, ‘I didn’t know I could host a Conversation with The Other Side!’ and decided that I should let you all know that YOU can host one, either in person or online via videoconference.  AND if you host one of these fun and educational events, YOU attend for free!  Check out the details here, then send me an email letting me know you’d like to get on the calendar.  This is a great time to get a message from your angels, spirit guides or loved ones on the Other Side.  I look forward to helping you get a free message!  Details Here

We’ve had our Spring Equinox here in North America and the days are getting longer.  Now we’re heading for the Full Moon coming up on Wednesday, March 27 at 5:27 am Eastern Time.  Are you ready to leap forward as the clocks did and the calendar invites you?  This Full Moon is during the time that the Sun is in the sign of Aries with lots of energy for cleaning house and shifting gears.  [This is also why it’s a great time to get a personal message in a Conversation with The Other Side!]  Let go of the blahs and the blocks and spring ahead on your path of Purpose!

Have a great week and may you have beautiful weather wherever you are!

What Does Self-Love Look Like? –Richard’s Commentary

“Love creates. Love bonds. Love attracts and holds securely. Love frees. Love develops and Love lets go. Love releases bonds that no longer serve.”

When I first read Rosemary’s “litany” about Love, Paul’s letter to the Corinthians came to mind, that often used text in Christian weddings: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” (Quoted from the NIV Bible published by Zondervan.)

While these lists of what Love looks like are superficially very different, they certainly are parallel. Rosemary’s list is about creation and development. There are bonds in Love but those bonds need to serve, not hinder growth. And Paul’s description of Love can certainly apply to creative development, growth. His words almost more appropriately apply to the Love between parent and child; there is a definite paternal quality to his list which likely reflected his feelings toward the Corithians.

Then how do these descriptions of Love apply to Self-Love, the main topic of Rosemary’s post? Creation and development are key in Rosemary’s list. And I believe this is very true for Self-Love to grow and flourish. As humans we can never stop growing, Life is about learning our lessons. And these lessons are all about the evolution of Consciousness. The explosive creation of the Universe, out of Love, initiated this entire evolutionary expansion we find ourselves in the midst of. If we were loved into existence then isn’t it incumbent on us to continue that love-stream?

Then look at what Paul says in the context of Self-Love: it is all about development, growth of a child. What if we apply these actions of patience, kindness, recording no wrongs toward ourselves? This creates an environment for learning our lessons, for expanding our consciousness and contributing to the evolution of Consciousness.

Paul’s and Rosemary’s litanies about Love turn out to be highly parallel and mutually supportive!

And what if we treat ourselves as they both implore? Rosemary says “Love releases bonds that no longer serve.” And Paul says Love “keeps no record of wrongs.” These words are describing forgiveness. And, for me, Self-Love and self-forgiveness are closely bound. There can’t be one without the other. I can only love myself from the capacity to forgive myself. And I can only forgive myself from that secure base of Self-Love.

When I am feeling low I sometimes need to drag out that “record of wrongs” I keep on myself and remember they are past wrongs that I need to let go; I need to release those “bonds that no longer serve.” This is a recurring theme for me; forgiving myself is at the base of picking myself up by my own bootstraps.

“Love is kind, it is not rude, it is not easily angered.” “Love frees.” I need to apply these words to me, often and always. Then perhaps I’ll more easily know what Self-Love does look like. And then, too, I’ll be contributing more to the evolution of Consciousness!

What does Self-Love look like for you?

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: What Does Self-Love Look Like?

For each individual the specifics of Self-Love will differ, but the underlying energy is the same.

Love is a very high vibration, much higher than Romance, with which many people confuse Love.  The energy of Pure Love is the vibrational frequency of the unifying force of the Universe.  Love creates.  Love bonds.  Love attracts and holds securely.  Love frees.  Love develops and Love lets go.  Love releases bonds that no longer serve.

These statements are true for every element in the Universe, from the smallest particle of matter to the energy of a human being to the largest planets, stars, galaxies.  Love is the strongest force in the Universe.

All Love flows from Self-Love.  The Universe-before-the-Universe so loved itself that it exploded into the Universe that you are experiencing at this time in the 21st Century.  Everything that exists in this Universe was created out of energy potential of the Love that existed in that explosion of Self-Love.  Every Universe came from that same energy.

In the life of every human being, there must be enough Self-Love to explode energy – that is the creative force energy – to manifest dreams into reality.  If there is not enough Self-Love, then energy is sucked into oneself without the pure expression of Love energy in the outer world.

Those who exist with little or no Self-Love cannot manifest their high vibration dreams and desires.

All Love blossoms out of Self-Love.  If you have a high enough level of this Self-Love then you cannot help but overflow into sharing that Love as Creative Energy in the world around you.

No relationship improves by working on it without also elevating one’s level of Self-Love.  No situation – job, career, financial, legal, etc. – will improve before the person involved increases the level of Self-Love within.

What does this look like?

For one person, Self-Love might appear as eating a healthier diet.  For another, it might be taking time to meditate or journal or walk in Nature.  For someone else, Self-Love may mean severing a friendship, ending a relationship or quitting a job.

One person might need to speak their truth aloud.  Another might need to stay quiet and change their situation.

The high vibration of Self-Love eclipses lashing out to hurt another but that doesn’t mean that others might not choose to feel hurt or even to play the victim in the situation.  Self-Love leads one to stand in their own truth no matter what happens outside and around them.  There is no intention to hurt another and yet there is also no responsibility for the reception one receives when standing in Self-Love.

Self-Love is not the same as Self-Care but all Self-Care develops out of Self-Love if it is healthy care.  One does not rebel or feel guilty when Self-Care stems from Self-Love.  There is a neutral character to this Self-Care—it just IS because it is based in Self-Love.

Ask yourself if you Love yourself enough to make choices from a place of Self-Love.  Are you willing to look inside yourself and to love every part that you find there?  Are you open to loving even those parts that you are wishing to change, simply because they are YOU and they have served you in some way up to this point?

Self-Acceptance and Self-Care come from Self-Love.  As the Universe loved itself into existence, so should your Life be a reflection of great Self-Love.  If you are unhappy about some element of your Life, then focus on increasing your level of Self-Love so that your Life can change to reflect that higher level of Love vibration.

Love your Life into existence as you desire, letting it blossom forth from Self-Love.
