If you shut down your feelings to avoid pain, how can you ever know what is right or wrong for you? Spirit often speaks through your feelings, so when you are in the intent to protect against pain rather than in the intent to learn about love, you are shutting out the very guidance that you need to feel safe. By Dr. Margaret Paul
I found this to be a very Powerful Meditation (use headphones)
1 MIN reading: I have learned — by PAULO COELHO on JANUARY 21, 2012
My step father is a Berber, one of the indigenous peoples of North Africa who lived there long before the Arabs conquered that land. He taught me a way of calming myself and bringing the soul of beauty back into my life when I feel distraught. It’s a technique I call breathing the moon, but it can be done with any thing of natural beauty: a flower, the spacious blue of the sky, a body of water, and so on. First, you must go for a walk outside. This is simple and gets your blood flowing, fresh air in your body; it clears your head. As you walk, take notice of things of beauty that your eye catches, because these are important and not accidental. When your attention is drawn to that thing, stop walking. Look at it and try to get quiet, making a bit of room inside yourself for the presence of that thing. You don’t need to physically touch it. Imagine unlacing yourself, opening up your heart, your soul, or whatever you believe is yourself. Take six long, luscious breaths that draw the presence of the beautiful thing into yourself, looping into your body and out again in a continuous circuit. There is no negative, no waste to imagine removing. You are simply integrating and sharing yourself with a particular instance of nature. Move on, do this at least six times with various things during your walk. I have found that the essence of that which has been breathed into oneself remains, lightening and balancing one’s experience for a long time. You can rely on this practice to soothe you, and you may find over time that the things you have breathed, for instance, the moon, seem to remember you too, greeting you like an old friend whenever you see her.
Hopi Elder Prophesy:
You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered. . . . Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for your leader. Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And, I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt. The time of the one wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Happy New Moon January 2012 & Happy New Year of the Dragon (from Mike Hayden on FB)
New Moon Energies ~ Take a moment to fully make a list of your desires and command your Higher Self to actualize the manifestation within your life. When you write the list, call upon your Higher Essence to fully bring in the magic to create each element you list. Rip it up ~ and burn it with some sage. Take it outside into the elements and allow White Buffalo Calf Woman to take the smoke and return it into your blessings when you are ready to receive. Put the ashes into the ground, into some water, and see them fully manifest in front of you.
And then the way cool…or red hot…
How Solar Flares are Affecting Us
This is a 10 month old article, but as we are experiencing incredible solar flare activity now, (huge solar flare activity Jan 21-23) it’s a great read…more metaphysical but scientific…
After you have read the article, go to the following site and see the YouTube video from the 22nd of January 2012. It gives you some idea of just how powerful they are…never mind how beautiful the Norther Lights are.
Remember to still yourself, get centered and go within…throughout your day…this is where Spirit resides…
