For the New Moon in Gemini: Think NEW Thoughts

Happy New Moon in Gemini! And Thursday’s New Moon is also a Super Moon, meaning that the Sun and Moon are together in the sky in the sign of Gemini and the Moon is at its closest point to Earth. Lots of energy from both the Gemini Sun and the Super New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 3:44 pm Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, May 25.

This is a time to look at your limiting beliefs and discard those that do not serve you. The Gemini energy is about communication and thoughts and this time it is important to think about how you are communicating with yourself. What are you telling yourself, especially ABOUT yourself? Which thoughts are you engaging with instead of letting them go? The answers will give you a lot of information about where to focus your inner work during the next couple of weeks.

New Moons are times to do your manifesting work to bring in what you want to have in your life that is new. But are you clear about your Vision for your life? For that new project or situation or dream? Now is the time to get that clarity so that you can focus your manifesting energy like a laser beam on attracting what you do want and avoid attracting what you don’t want, which is what happens when you worry about what you don’t want.

Spend some time over the next couple of days looking at what has come up for you to examine over the last couple of weeks. That Full Moon on May 10 hit a lot of us with a blast of energy. What’s been happening in your life that is inviting you to re-think the automatic thoughts that keep popping up in your mind?

Remember, your thoughts are not you! You can change your thoughts and it will change your life. (I spend most of my time in sessions with clients helping them to do just this.) You have the power to CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS. And now is the perfect time to get clear about your Vision so that you can focus your thoughts in the direction of your dreams.

To help you do this, I am offering the Master HeartMind Program starting on May 30. This is a 3-month program to help you get Clarity about your Vision, Confidence by clearing doubts, fears, limiting beliefs and negative self-talk, and Commitment to the path forward by planning the roadmap for the next steps. There is more info on the website and I would love to support you in using this New Moon energy to create a new vision for your work, relationships, life.

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to learn more about this small group program, available live online so that you can join from wherever you are.

The Guidance Circle on the last Thursday of every month, is bringing in some great teaching about how to deal with these uncertain times and how to live a prosperous multi-dimensional life. Even if you can’t join us live on Thursday, May 25 (also the New Moon!), everyone who registers will receive the recording of the message. And if you can be on the call live, you can ask questions, personal or general, at the end of the session. Get more information and register here:

Happy Spring! It’s almost Summer and I look forward to seeing many of you over the coming weeks. Technology is wonderful (when it works!) so that videoconferencing lets me see the beautiful faces of my clients and program participants. I collect and give away SMILES!

Sending many blessings and much love,

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Truth is Light

The truth inside you is revealed by your finding your Inner Light and shining that out into the world.

Do you think that you know the ‘Truth’ with a capital ‘T’? So often, we seek truth, we think we find truth, we think our truth is better than their truth. But, really, what is this truth that we seek, find, compare?

Did you used to believe in Santa Claus? The Tooth Fairy? The Easter Bunny? What is the truth around these characters?

Maybe you believed in the Boogeyman or the Monster Under the Bed? What is the truth about these characters?

Your belief made these very real to you. I suspect, however, that you have changed your truth around Santa Claus and the Boogeyman. What makes you feel that other stories you once believed, or believe today, cannot also change as you mature, evolve and grow?

The truth of who you are is the Inner Light that is the spark of the Divine, your connection to Source Energy, the Universe Within, your Spirit. Whatever you call your essence it is your truth.

What you believe can change from day to day, from moment to moment, but who you are – who you REALLY are, at your core – that does not change.

When you believe that you are a light being, placed on this Earth with a purpose to fulfill, a reason for being here, in this very place at this very moment surrounded by the very people who surround you, then you can be who you really are.

Your circumstances do not define who you are. Who you love and who doesn’t love you have nothing to do with the Light Within you. What you do does not say who you are. Your success or failure does not speak to who you are.

You are Light. Your truth comes from the cosmic light that was formed at the beginning of the Universe. Anything that is trying to dim you, to dim your light, is not truth.

Just as Santa Claus is a belief, so is most of what you believe about yourself ‘just a belief.’

I hear from clients language that tells me their belief has crept into their definition of ‘truth.’ ‘I’m not smart enough.’ ‘I can’t afford that.’ ‘I’m too fat to _____.’ ‘When I get that job I’ll be happy.’ ‘I’m too old to _____.’

I also hear things like ‘Life is hard.’ ‘Suffering is just a part of life.’ ‘I don’t have anyone who will help me.’

The list goes on. And I would bet that you could add to this list from your own experience.

Yet, these beliefs are not Truth with a capital T. They are beliefs. Beliefs can change.

“I’m the only one who can take care of that’ can change to ‘I’ll ask my brother to handle that issue for Mom.’ ‘I don’t have enough money to get the help I need’ can change to ‘I trust that money will come to me as I need it when I get my priorities straight.’

This list goes on, too.

Your truth can change as you mature, evolve and grow. Let it shift. Look for the Light. Truth has a Light Quality about it that helps you to believe.

The Truth is that you are your Inner Light. Now be who you REALLY are!

NEW MOON NEWS FROM ROSEMARY

Greetings; and Happy New Moon in Gemini!

“Be still and look inside for the answers. Trust that you have an Inner Wisdom that speaks your truth to you.”

NGC 6503 A Spiral Galaxy "Lost in Space"

The New Moon happened today, Tuesday, June 16 at 10:05 am Eastern Daylight Time. This is the time to start something new, to create new activities, to think new thoughts. What beliefs about yourself are you ready to shift? Can you ponder some aspect of your life from a new perspective? What newness do you want to attract into your life?

Make things happen now, while the Moon is growing in the night sky from dark to Full. Think new thoughts. Believe new ideas. Find new ways to listen, to communicate.

Use the Gemini energy to improve communications. Mercury is now moving in a direct pattern – we survived another dreaded retrograde period! Woo Hoo! Focus on the listening side of communicating while you observe yourself – are you getting the response you want or are your communications creating something different? Take responsibility for communicating authentically while allowing others to be valued and appreciated for their authentic selves.

The Summer Solstice is coming up on June 21 – the longest day of the year for us in the northern hemisphere. The most Light of the year! What new Light can you shine into the world this week?

Someone recently asked how to convince someone else that it is important to pay attention to the Moon. What do you think? Does it matter? My answer is that we are mostly water and the Moon visibly affects the waters of the Chesapeake Bay so why shouldn’t we be affected by the same energy that brings in a super high tide?

I’ve also talked to folks who work in Emergency Rooms and they KNOW, with great certainty, that the Moon affects people because they can track it in the emergencies that they see.

Knowledge is Power. To live a Conscious Life means to be conscious of what is going on around you. Noticing the Moon and her cycles is a part of that knowledge.

PS: The Hubble image is of NGC 6503, a Spiral Galaxy “Lost in Space.” From the Hubble Site: “…this galaxy, known as NGC 6503, has found itself in a lonely position, at the edge of a strangely empty patch of space called the Local Void. The Local Void is a huge stretch of space that is at least 150 million light-years across.”

Evolve Your Light – Richard’s Commentary

As I was writing my Morning Pages yesterday it came to me that I want to go deeper with Qigong. Why? I had raked leaves the day before and loaded 15 bags from the front yard – heavy work. As the evening descended my muscles and joints began to remind me that I am older than I think. But I did some breathing and reminded my body that I practice Qigong; all the twisting and pulling motions of raking leaves is not unlike certain Qigong moves I make in practice. In fact I was very mindful of these motions as I raked.

Last year when I raked leaves from that front yard I ended up with stiff muscles in my back for a week afterward. This year I woke up the morning after and felt great. So, I raked more leaves ahead of the East Coast storm we are enjoying today. There is no question in my mind that my body practices are keeping me younger in body than my age in years would indicate.

My plan is to Evolve My Light, or I could say “Evolve My Qi” and take further steps down this path of growth. Why? Here’s how Rosemary answers this question:

Now, at whatever your current age is, those souls are looking to you for your light to shine on the path that you are sharing. How do you shine your light? By living your soul’s purpose, by being the light that you already are.

“Those souls” are everyone in my community. They include you, dear reader. My “soul’s purpose” is to build community. And my approach is to build community around Qigong. Qi is Life Force; it is Light; it is Love. By continuing to go deeper with my Qigong practice I am answering the call that Rosemary reminds us we are here to do.

I am reading some excellent books on Qigong and Taiji. And I am putting the word out I am looking for deeper instruction. At this time I am between classes that I have been teaching because I am feeling this call to go deeper before developing my next series of classes. Naturally I always learn more by teaching as well; a new class will be offered early in the New Year.

What form does your light take? How are you “Evolving Your Light”? This is the most important question you can ask yourself! Why?

YOU are in charge of the development and evolution of your own consciousness. No one around you can do it for you. You were not born to find answers and then stagnate. You are here to learn the next thing, to study, to grow, to evolve.

Never stop. There is no end here, no bottom to the deeper!

I am grateful to Rosemary for this important reminder! Enjoy your “gratitude day” tomorrow as we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US.

ROSEMARY’S INSPIRATION: Be a Luminary!

My “Two-Minute” Video for this Week: Be a Luminary!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Evolve Your Light

When you became a human being, when you took your first breath of Mother Earth’s atmosphere, you began a journey of evolution. The journey of a lifetime is the evolution of your consciousness, from the moment you are born until the moment you take that last breath of air. At every moment in your life you are growing in your awareness of the world around you.

The question today is, ‘Are you evolving or are you attempting to stay where you are?’

So many people are struggling in this world because they are focused on using the tools they already have, on following the thoughts and beliefs from earlier days, on listening to what someone else is saying is true instead of going inside to seek their own truth. The shift that is needed is a shift in consciousness, an evolutionary approach to solving problems and to living life.

You were born as a bright light on the horizon of humanity. Everyone around you was waiting for you to come into the world. Even if you have a belief that you were unwanted, know that the souls around you then and now asked for you to arrive when and where and to whom you did.

Now, at whatever your current age is, those souls are looking to you for your light to shine on the path that you are sharing. How do you shine your light? By living your soul’s purpose, by being the light that you already are.

I see too many people choosing to hide. It appears to be so much easier to shrink from the spotlight and to stay on the sidelines of life. I don’t just mean refusing to get on the stage – I mean shrinking back from the enormity of what you feel is your raison d’etre, your reason for being here, your soul purpose.

It can feel like a tremendous burden or too huge a task to fulfill that purpose. Good. That means that you have tapped into what you are really here to be and to do!

No matter what form your life is taking at this moment, you are here to be the Light in the life of those around you. Lead by lighting the way for them to follow. Show by your example that you are willing to live your purpose and to be a Light in the world.

You don’t have to be famous, or on the stage, or find medical cures or solve world hunger, although you might. You DO, however, have a responsibility to the world to be the brightest light that you are able to be, right now, today, in whatever circumstances you face.

YOU are in charge of the development and evolution of your own consciousness. No one around you can do it for you. You were not born to find answers and then stagnate. You are here to learn the next thing, to study, to grow, to evolve.

How are you doing this?

This is where hiding does not serve you or the evolution of human consciousness. Reach out to learn what you can, to connect with others who are also on the path of the evolution of consciousness. Shine your light for them and allow them to shine their lights for you.

Take a class. Read a book. Join a group. Have a conversation.

It is especially important that you do your personal growth work. Clear negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that are holding you and your light hostage to them. Explore possibilities that will take you outside your comfort zone.

Evolve and shine the bright light that you are!

Change, Transformation and Transition – Richard’s Commentary

The shifts are here. The transformation we have been waiting for, wondering about, anticipating with both excitement and maybe some fear, is here! I have heard from several sources now that proclaim the big shifts predicted by the Mayan calendar are happening. Rosemary’s mystic message and her channeled message from The Divine Feminine this past Wednesday evening both speak to this Era of Change we have entered.

Do you feel it? Are you reacting to this sense of change we are experiencing? It may be a good time to take some proactive steps toward living more consciously! Here’s an example of what I am doing:

I have had a number of signs show up in my life that suggest that I need to rise before dawn and greet the Sun every morning. As a kid helping my Dad on the farm I was usually up before the Sun. But I am not a morning person. When I have a choice I prefer to sleep in! One of my most esteemed teachers, Martín Prechtel, strongly suggested we make a practice of greeting the Sun each morning. When I was attending Bolad’s Kitchen I was faithful to his suggestion, but my commitment to this important practice was easily released when away from Northern New Mexico. More recently I read a novel about the Cherokee and the Trail of Tears. The Cherokee greeted “Mother Sun” every morning.

I have begun this practice again. For the past several days I have risen before the Sun to great Him/Her. And this has been wonderful. It not only feels right, but I sense a deepening shift in me that is more than enough reward for (what use to be) my reluctance to rise early!

This may seem a small thing to do. But it is a shift I am making consciously. And it is a response to a call to make this shift. As Rosemary writes:

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.

Are you responding to the shifts? Have you sensed any energy changes and made adjustments? Rosemary goes on to say:

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!

These are exciting times. Some people may go into fear around the signs of change; they may become uncomfortable during the transition as we move through the changes into the transformation. But we have help to support us through these times.

The message from The Divine Feminine from October 15 gave us much to think about and offered incredible support. They said fear is a signal to us that we are transforming. In those moments we are called to bring in more light. Move into the light. We are the light! This is just one more sign to me to rise before dawn to greet Father/Mother Sun. Rosemary concludes her message:

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.

And:

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

Adjust to the shifts; and be glad!

Be Your Brightest Self! – Richard’s Commentary

Rosemary’s article and post this week continues this conversation about “being the light.” I have heard her and the multiple “sources” she channels say many times “you are the light of the world.” This is an easy phrase. Many of us have heard it most of our lives as quotes from the New Testament of Christian Bibles. Jesus frequently said this about both himself and his followers.

But when that simple phrase is closely considered it is not necessarily the easiest concept to embrace! In particular here is one challenge Rosemary throws out:

And when you are having a bad day, do you seek the light within yourself or do you try to pull others into your bad mood to commiserate with you?

OK, I don’t think I try to pull others into my bad moods. But I do have them. And when I am in a mood that is not necessarily of the lightest variety, do I seek the light within? Not always! Do you know what I mean? Are there moods you experience that are dark but you want to stay there, to feel them, to wallow for just a bit? There’s a soothing quality to these moods sometimes.

But consider others around you. I have to pull this notion toward me first when I am in one of my moods. Now that I’m retired I “work” at home. And, yes, it is actual work to keep two businesses going. The point is I am home, with Rosemary, a lot. We do have a big enough house to spread out and go to separate rooms. However we are frequently and often together; our moods rub against each other. It is much easier and more pleasant to reach for the light, even when I am in the darkest of moods – it’s only fair!

How do I do this? As I’ve written many times I have lots of practices to move my moods around: body practices include Yoga and Qigong and I do one or both almost daily. My mental practices include reading, research and my “morning pages.” My “pages” are the quickest way to shift my mood. I enjoy writing anyway; to write about my moods is a sure way to dig in to them, sift through them and finally shift them. Some of my page writing begins quite negatively. But by the end of the third page they always end on high notes! I don’t even know how this works, but it is true. It’s a wonderful practice, for me, and the reason I’ve been doing it for years now.

My spiritual practices include several forms of meditation. But it is difficult, for me, to meditate when I am in a mood. The mood needs to be shifted first. I need to “seek the light within” first and be in that space of light in order to still my mind. But there is one Koan meditation practice that does work; I’ve written about it here before. It is to simply ask the question “what is this?” when the mood insinuates itself enough to be recognized as “a mood.” The question is answered and then repeated several times until the root cause is revealed. It works. You might wonder at first if this is more like a mental practice, but as the questioning and answers move deeper the process does become meditative.

You may ask “why go through all this; moods change eventually.” Hopefully for most of us this is true enough. But here’s what Rosemary says about the “why”:

Your purpose on Planet Earth is to be your own Sun, to shine your light. Those around you are looking to you to shine. They need the light of your love and warmth as much as they need the Sun’s. Who are you to withhold that light from them?

It starts inside. We need ourselves to be lights for ourselves! And this radiates out to those closest to us. And it continues to radiate out to the neighborhood, the community, everyone we encounter from store clerks to friends, from family to strangers (friends we just haven’t met yet). Imagine if we all knew this purpose and became “suns” for everyone else on the planet!

For one thing we’d all have shining eyes – and that would be something to smile about!
