Handling Lady Luna’s Grip On Your Gravity

Remembering back to the oracle over the weekend, (you may not have caught it due to a technical hitch with the website but it’s available to read here). It was about getting lost in uncertainty within a sea of your own questions and the resulting ¬†emotional state is often one of confusion, frustration and ultimately leading to physical exhaustion.

Today’s Full Moon in Scorpio is a pretty significant event in terms of emotional stability, the moon herself affecting water and Scorpio being a watery sign… water being symbolic of and affecting the emotions. If you don’t believe in the potency of astrology then look at the physics: the moon’s pull on Earth’s gravity is what causes tides in the sea so if it has that much influence over a powerful body of water such as an ocean imagine what it can do to a walking meat sack of water like a human being.

All that said, let’s take for granted then that during a full moon your personal tides are high.

Emotion is not your enemy. When you understand that you are not actually the emotion but instead the individual experiencing them, you can take up the position of the observer and use it as one of the greatest gifts Source bestowed upon you knowing that its guidance as to your direction, your position, your timing and your environment. How cool is that? Cosmic GPS!

So knowing full well there are 3 days across a full moon where it’s effects are at there most powerful: the day before, day of and day after; I wasn’t too alarmed when my energy dropped yesterday, as did my enthusiasm and my excitement for the things that have been fascinating me of late. I simply turned my attention to Principle 6: I AM Self-Full (understand it more here), and got on with a few mundane chores that didn’t require much creative energy….

And then the questions began.

Before I knew what was happening I was embroiled in a deluge of mind chatter, not about how I felt, I understood that, but confusing emotional heaviness caused by gravity with my GPS alerting me to the chance I might be going the wrong way, making the wrong choices, taking risks that were ludicrous, believing the wrong people… it goes on. These are the questions the oracle warned of.

The only way to stop the tumble and start handling Lady Luna’s grip on your gravity is to get fully present by embracing Principle 2: I AM Detached, the art of letting go of all outcomes and just being.

You may not be able to control the movement of the heavens but by being aware of how you’re affecting by it you can get back to your empowered centre knowing “this too shall pass.”

Saturday Oracle – Calling The Control Tower

Grail Oracle 2Grail Oracle Orange

Anxiety levels are on the rise and its not just because of the impending holidays…

Since Last Tuesday’s new moon I have been in contact with numerous people who have been overcome with an intense stress energy that is apparently set to lead us into this coming week.

When Principle 2: I AM Detached meets the overly fizzy orange of the sacral chakra, the central nervous system becomes frazzled by the onslaught of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin pushing us into high alert and depleting vital resources and coping skills.

About two years ago I was suffering from an eye injury compounded by my body misinterpreting the threat and undertaking the task of attacking itself instead of the problem. In danger of losing my sight, that meant I had to take massive doses of steroids to suppress my immune response for an extended amount of time. Steroids are basically pharmacological versions of those stress hormones I mentioned earlier… The result was terrifying.

For several months I felt as though I had fractured my own mind, watching an internal battle play out between the different aspects of self over the most basic decisions like whether or not it was a good idea to make a cup of tea and partake of the beverage after 9.30 pm… not exactly a life threatening choice but enough that I began to panic as one version of me argued for and one argued against all the while the sane higher self was desperately trying to get them to listen to reason in that it made no difference whatsoever… my lovely mum eventually settled the argument via the phone, like landing a unmanned airplane remotely from the control tower.

It sounds funny now but the blind panic, shaking, surging anxiety and feeling of being out of control of even the most basic things is a very frightening experience.

In the last few days, these feelings, to a much lesser degree have begun to surface… luckily, being many months now free of prescription pharmaceutical aid (both eyeballs intact), the road to recovery is much less frightening and at least now recognisable without calling the control tower!

Imagine my surprise though when others started reporting in similar symptoms…

Here’s the thing, 2016 has been a year of clearing, literally letting go of the old, of endings. The New Moon, reported to be bringing love and abundance was a magical doorway highlighting the residue of the years work and reminding you that constant letting go causes perforations in the subtle bodies making you extra sensitive to both internal shifts and external manipulation.

Staying present is the most effective method of survival through this short-term flux. Your mind is your enemy during times of stress… your body is your friend… mindfulness is key. Focus on your breath, relaxing each muscle group in order, let go of anywhere you are holding tension and avoid asking why, acknowledging what’s happening during a panic attack is often enough to release its grip. Be very gentle with yourself this week avoid high stress environments and people, and use the age old mantra: this too shall pass.

Back next week… x

Saturday Oracle – The Onion Layer

Grail Oracle 6Grail Oracle Yellow

The Intuitive Chalice Oracle is a tool for unearthing the flow of energy happening in your life and is also used a diagnostic tool for healing with The Wholly Grail. Combining one of the Grail’s seven Principles with one of the subtle body’s seven main 3rd dimensional chakras to form a picture of what area of the mind, body or spirit is trying to get your attention at this time.

This week’s combination is spot on for me and made me whence slightly before I unleashed a smile at the underlying possibilities. Whenever Principle 6: I AM Self-Full shows up you absolutely must turn your attention inwards towards your own personal needs regardless of how much your personality drives you towards selflessness. An empty vessel can’t support anybody so it’s time to assess what’s in need of refuelling and seek to give that very thing to yourself.

When the yellow of the solar plexus chakra is highlighted its primary focus is on your self-worth, personal power, innate joy and of course the exact opposite.

Be prepared to feel the negative forces of doubt and depression this week if they haven’t already started. Self destructive behaviours are to be watched for, like: addictions such as overeating, ¬†excessive alcohol consumption, drugs and other distractions to numb or deaden the internal disturbance you may be feeling as we enter a temporary phase of feeling lost.

I want to make something clear at this point, this energy is temporary if you allow it to be and is a negative reaction to a positive shift. You have been transforming gently over the course of this year and a deep healing process has been undertaken to show you who you truly are and what you are capable of. This isn’t a hiccup in the process it’s the next phase, the next layer of the onion shedding to reveal the radiant beautiful soul beneath. The negativity is simply a fear response to yet more change but this time the work you have already put in combined with recognising what’s happening means you have the choice not to succumb to the destructive behaviours or give in to fear.

Something wonderful is just around the corner and you deserve the impending reward… rise up and make preparation. Focus on your own needs… Do you need to rest? Do you need to detox? Do you need to establish your own boundaries? Do you need to shift locations or redefine home? Do you need to be more connected to family, friends and loved ones? Fine what makes you happy and surrender the rest to an ever loving Source. Ask the angels to surround, guide and comfort you through this process and let them lead you to healthier choices based on nurturing your divine nature and not by punishing or suppressing it. Be Self-Full. That doesn’t mean being selfish, giving may be exactly what you need. Sharing can nurture the spirit just as much as becoming insular, like sharing a smile as you pass a stranger, sharing a couple of hours with a loved one over a coffee or perhaps even sharing yourself in a warm embrace with someone you love is exactly what’s called for right now.

Your innate happiness hasn’t gone anywhere, it will return once The Onion Layer is safely removed. If the onion makes you cry in the meantime… that’s healing too.

More next week… x
