We continue to be on a wild ride! As I go through my days, I hear people saying they’re tired. Maybe you’re tired, too. The energies of the moment have been suggesting that we both rest and take action! So take good care of yourself and also write your emails and make your calls if you are prompted to do so.
Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn, urging us to consider how solid our foundations are both personally and as a collective. This is the first time the mighty little planet has returned to Capricorn since the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In the sign of the goat from 2008 through 2024, Pluto insists that we revisit the themes that prompted American patriots to claim this country for their own and separate from British rule 246 years ago. Many believe we are in a second American Revolution.
Have we accomplished what we set out to in 1776, with integrity? Or do we need to reconsider, correct or improve anything? The prevailing vibe seems to suggest the latter. Pluto is lord of the underworld and in Capricorn, our collective shadow is up for review. As Pluto chugs slowly through the sky, rickety supports are falling out from under the belief systems and institutions that don’t support us all. Secrets are coming to the surface and the true nature of many things are being exposed. It seems integrity and common sense are a thing of the past, but one could argue we’re in the breakdown phase of a natural cycle. When the dust settles and the rubble is cleared, we will plant seeds and a new cycle begins. In the meantime, we have more years of change ahead of us.
You have the awareness and the skill set for this time, even if you’re not fully conscious of it. We can help; we offer programs to remind you of your tools and your awareness and give you an opportunity to be part of a community of spiritual seekers.
Our primary tool is grounding to Mother Earth. Sit in a chair with your feet on the ground and attach a big tube, or a grounding cord, from the base of your spine to the center of the earth. Make it wide and hollow and pretend you’re sitting in the top of it; keep it the same diameter all the way down so it has plenty of room to release the energies you’re done with. Many things that unfold this year will make no sense but grounding always does! Take 5 minutes every day to breathe deeply, release from your cord and imagine you’re filling your whole body back in with liquid gold energy. It helps you settle into your body and be more present. There are many ways to ground; ours is only one of them but we continue to teach this very simple technique because it works!
Many of you have been grounding yourselves, running earth and cosmic energy, cleaning out your center of head and repairing and cleaning your aura for years—using the tools we teach in our popular How To Heal Yourself class. Creatures of habit, some of us learn the tools then work with them the same way year in and year out. But nothing enhances grounding like making it a new material, a new color, a new vibration. Or, try matching your grounding to the same vibe as Mother Earth’s (she grounds to the Sun), or to a place you especially love.
Another technique is to put all your tools in a rose or a bubble. Ground it, then ask it to release anything that prevents the tools from being in present time. You might notice you have more clarity, your center of head feels lighter and you’re more in your body. No effort is needed! Energy will do as you ask.
Here’s your reminder to set aside a few minutes for your tools every day. Bring them into present time, then ground and blow up some roses for uncertainty, fear, resistance and so on. Fill in with gold energy with some amusement and clarity, then notice if you feel more ease in your world. It’s a very simple practice that can really shift your energy.
Trish and I send you blessings and a spiritual hello as we move along this path together. It’s an exciting time to be alive and we’re so glad you’re with us!
