CHRYSILLA LEWIES: “Forgetful Lately? Here’s The Surprising Reason Why!”

Do you feel like you are losing your mind, forgetting simple details? Rest assured you’re not, it’s actually one of the ascension symptoms we are all currently experiencing.

You can’t seem to remember what someone told you yesterday or maybe it just feels like your mind is becoming a sieve. You start thinking that you might need Memory supplements, your friends suggest reading more to challenge your mind to keep it active; and It’s true, we all need to use our muscles to keep them healthy. The brain is a muscle, but we don’t seem to use it as much as we use to. Let’s face it, technology has taken over a lot of problem solving tasks, but this is not the reason we are losing our memory, it is actually the complete opposite.

Our consciousness is gradually splitting away from the physical world and we no longer need to rely on our physical mind as much as we have done in the past. We are moving into higher states of consciousness and moving into the era of knowingness.

Forgetful Lately? Here’s The Surprising Reason WHY!

There is no better time than the present to practice to trust your internal guidance and to follow your intuition. By sitting in quiet meditation and getting to know how the real YOU feel — your essence as a pure energy being. You will find the balance between the heart and mind as you become more aware of the changes happening within you. You will start to notice how your feelings are pulling you into the direction you are meant to be going. These thoughts might be as subtle as:

  • “I knew I should have taken that exit on the motorway!”
  • “I got a feeling that I should have taken different route home, but didn’t”, or
  • “I don’t think I should go to this event, something doesn’t feel right.”

When living in your thinking mind and you are analyzing every decision you make or would like to make — will lead you to miss crucial opportunities. If you do, it might lead you to look at something and instinctively where you will know that something might happen before it actually does. You may get a feeling of knowingness and you get the opportunity to follow and trust your intuition. But do you?

When you are consciously thinking, you can feel the mind as it is working, analyzing and compartmentalizing. Sometimes you get home after a long day at work and you are tired, but not because of the physical work but the mental thinking you have been doing. Moving into the era of knowingness, your mind will no longer have to work as hard. Your mind feels empty and it feels like you’re not retaining as much information as you used to. Think of it as you storing the information in ‘The Cloud’.

The knowingness will come to you in a manner where you will be able to automatically read a person by just being in their auric field or connecting to them through thought. You may experience having a knowingness of what they are feeling without being in their presence. You may be so connected to someone that you will immediately know when something is wrong, and you will be guided to pick up the phone and call them.

The key is to Trust.

Enhance your natural abilities through practicing psychometry, meditation and or any other techniques that will allow you to use your senses more, instead of your mind.

MANIFESTING MARIA: “Manifesting Self-Reflection”

“Self-reflection is the capacity to exercise introspection and the willingness of humans to examine their fundamental nature, conscious thoughts and feelings, in order to learn more about their purpose and soul essence. It causes us to ask ourselves who we are, why we are, who we want to be and how we can be better.”

~Maria Palmeri

 

I don’t know about you, but just “being” isn’t enough for me. One of my core values is intentional growth. I have to strive to be my best and true self. To grow, to learn, to evolve, to have pride of character and to touch the lives of others and inspire them to the same. Don’t get me wrong, I won’t always be my best self, I make mistakes. I’m no spiritual snob… but I am always trying to understand myself and my motives so that I can try to manifest my best self and true desires. To do that, I always have to be conscious of who I am and what I’m reflecting.

I was talking with a friend the other day and we were commiserating about “Why are we on this quest of inner healing?” Why are we moved to emotionally twist ourselves up and chase down our demons to be our best selves when we can look around and clearly see that others seem to be comfortable walking around and interacting as their (for lack of a better word) “shitty-shit” selves?!

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. ”

~Lao Tzu

It occurred to me that not everyone has self-reflection skills. Self-reflection is the capacity to exercise introspection and the willingness of humans to examine their fundamental nature, conscious thoughts and feelings, in order to learn more about their purpose and soul essence. It causes us to ask ourselves who we are, why we are, who we want to be and how we can be better.

Why is introspection so important?

It’s easy to get distracted by life, moving from one moment to the next. Too busy doing, reacting, blaming and ultimately delaying the critical thinking necessary to constructively examine our lives. By enhancing our ability to understand ourselves and our motivations, we bring our focus back from outside diversions to ourselves and inner self-growth. Self-reflection is the key to real and lasting, positive self-transformation and personal growth.

We have over 50,000 thoughts per day, over half of which are negative and over 90% of which are just repeats from the day before. Many people get stuck in the cycle of blaming their feelings of failure, unworthiness, or unhappiness on others, while remaining blind to what they do to create and re-create their circumstances. Without awareness, we can change behaviors but we will not manifest the real and lasting transformation that we desire.

“An unexamined life is not worth living.”

~Plato

If we can become experts in self, we can change our wasteful or negative thought patterns into positive, self-transformational thought patterns that benefit our lives, progeny and the collective community.

GUY FINLEY: “Want What Life Wants”

“Learning to hear this supreme secret is no more difficult than choosing whether to swim against a current or to let it carry you safely to the shore. Let it speak its wisdom to that secret part of you that can not only hear what it is saying but that is, in reality, its very voice. Listen to it now. It is saying, ‘Want What Life Wants.'”

~Guy Finley

 

Everyone wonders whether or not there is one great secret for truly successful living. There is. And it is not a secret. It has been quietly, steadily telling itself right in front of us all along. We just couldn’t hear it over the clatter and chatter of our own secret demands. Listen quietly for a moment. Everything can change right now.

Learning to hear this supreme secret is no more difficult than choosing whether to swim against a current or to let it carry you safely to the shore. Let it speak its wisdom to that secret part of you that can not only hear what it is saying but that is, in reality, its very voice. Listen to it now. It is saying, “Want What Life Wants.” Locked within these four simple words is the secret of an uncompromising power for effortless living; a new kind of power that never fails to place you on the winning side of any situation. Why? Because when you want what Life wants, your wish is for Life itself.

The following paragraphs will not only make these life-healing ideas more personal for you, but they will help you to help yourself make a higher choice when it comes to what you really want from life.

When you want what you want you are often nervous and anxious because life may not cooperate with your plans. But when you want what Life wants you are never disappointed with what happens.

You are willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to get what you want, and this may include your integrity. But wanting what Life wants means you are always in the right place at the right time. When you’re guided by your wants, you are usually scheming in some way to win your next victory. But when guided by Life’s wants, you are quietly confident no matter what the circumstances.

Your wants always keep you in a battle or recovering from one. But when you want what Life wants you are out of the reach of anger and anxiety. When driven by your wants, you are unable to rest quietly when you need to. But cooperation with Life’s wants keeps you awake and sensitive to your surroundings.

Your wants leave you easily angered when someone or something gets in your way. But being in tune with Life’s wants frees you of ever feeling as though you’ve missed out.

With your wants you are forever driven to want something else, but with Life’s wants you are never thrown for a loss.

Your wants turn you against anyone else who also wants what you want. But when you want what Life wants, you are in total command of events. When you strive to fulfill your wants, you are certain that what you have is who you are. But when you want what Life wants, you are mentally quiet.

Finally, when you want what you want, you are always trying to convince yourself that you got what you want. But when you want what Life wants, you are eternally grateful for whatever Life has given you.

Always remember the following. If any want is the source of anxiety or sorrow, that want is yours and not Life’s. Never accept the presence of any mental or emotional suffering as necessary, no matter how much importance these impostors lend to a particularly pressing want. By refusing their dark presence, you make space for the present moment to give you its indefinable presence. This is where the Life that you want — and that wants you — is waiting.

Some might ask, “But what will happen to me if I give up my demands? Won’t I lose control of my life?”

You cannot lose control of something you never had control over in the first place. No human being controls life — his, hers, or anyone else’s. If it weren’t for higher energies coming down, filling and animating your body right now, you couldn’t be looking at this page right now and reading its words. If you want to measure the level of an individual’s stress, measure his insistence that life does as he wants. The only thing you will lose by learning to want what life wants is your fear of not being in control — which was never real control in the first place.

Here is the most important point of all. No human being needs control over life because, in reality, no one is apart from it. Who you really are, your True Nature, is not separate from life.

Let Life bring you itself. Welcome it. At each instant, it is new, full — untouched and undiminished by any moment before it. To enter into this full relationship with Life is to give yourself to your Self. Fulfilling the true purpose of Life is fulfilling your self.

CLAUDIA SAPIENZA: “This Is What The Moon Means In Each Zodiac Sign”

Moon Signs (5).png

“The Moon in our birth chart tells us about emotions, nourishment, happiness and Soul.  It indicates what energies we feed ourselves to feel happy and how we are being pushed to manifest them.  While the Sun suggests what makes us feel alive.”

~Claudia Sapienza

Each planet in our birth chart, must be fed, in order to prevent it from manifesting its dark side.  If you don’t know in which zodiac sign your moon is refer to this detailed birth chart:  Astrology Complete Detailed Birth Chart

In this article we want to present the evolutionary intention of the Moon in the signs, how to nourish it to avoid the negative manifestation of this combination.

Moon In Aries

The evolutionary aim is to impose the courage art.  However, with the moon in this sign, there is a great need for adventure.  To feel nourished and at ease, the soul needs to live challenges, innovations and some degree of tension.  The mood ranges from the desire of competitiveness, that feeling of having a sense of urgency by bringing the individual to feel nervous.  Intimacy is often expressed through some provocation.

The domestic environment tends to be explosive, but who has the moon in Aries is very protective of his family.  Those born with the Moon in Aries are stimulated to awaken their instincts, perhaps because once they have repressed them, and are struggling to re-contact them for that reason may sometimes feel anxious.  A good way to reduce this anxiety is to jump into new and exciting adventures.

Moon In Taurus

The evolutionary purpose of those born with the Moon in this sign is to find an inner confidence on an emotional level.  Desire for peace, the practicality, and reliability nourish the souls born with the Moon in this sign, which probably on karmic level may have experienced emotional torments difficult to manage, therefore, are now being encouraged to rediscover an inner peace, firm and lasting.

To keep this peace they are encouraged to come with contact with the most simple things and at hand.  Nature, animals and gardening soothe the soul born with the Moon in this sign; you want to savor life through the five senses to reconnect to the breath and the mind, body and matter included!  They need to feel confident in this body and in this lifetime!  If not nourished this moon, to feel safe, he tends to stick to the things and people possessively.

Moon In Gemini

The evolutionary purpose for people born with the Moon in Gemini is to communicate their emotions and to feel particularly free to do so safely.  This Moon feels happy when it’s given the freedom to curiosity, to experiment, to move from one flower to another like Peter Pan.

It feels free when you can breathe deeply, but you really feel free when it’s re-conquered an inner freedom.  The evolutionary invitation for those born under this moon is to unite the heart to the mind, avoiding the risk of metallic emotions too.  If not nourished this moon becomes destabilizingly stressed and confused especially mentally.

Moon in Cancer

The evolutionary purpose for people born with the Moon in Cancer is to feel safe even when they allow themselves to be a bit vulnerable.  Their soul is forced to love, to feel, to feed itself in depth, to be a mother.  They have a great desire to live in a safe nest, thus creating a protected domestic environment where they can escape.

Feeling nourished and nourishing others makes them feel useful, but it is within themselves that they need to feel all the love they already know how to give.  Perhaps sometimes this makes it hard to receive.  If not nourished this moon is likely to become obsessive and suffocating on emotional level towards others getting too protective.

Moon In Leo

Freely express themselves emotionally and become extremely vital for the Souls born under this sign.  These are creative moon, they need to play, enjoy and express themselves and have something to give.  Mainly from re-conquistre: dignity above all!  Therefore they need someone they can admire and value, even if only one person.

But if this Moon feels insecure it will tend to develop a little ‘ego-centrism’ focusing especially on people who do not appreciate, rather than on the only really managed to enjoy their gift.  The home environment will tend to become a kind of stage, so do not ignore those born with this moon, but don’t give them too much attention either, because they will do anything to get it.

Moon in Virgo

Those born with the Moon in this sign to feel sure, must feel that everything is in the right place.  Everything must be clear and understood, precise and accurate.  If you were born with the Moon in Virgo you will love surely nourish each other and be put to the service of those in need.

If the Moon tells us what to do to feel happy, people born with the Moon in Virgo have to do something so well that they may become pleased with themselves to regain a confidence perhaps lost once, a trust that has to do with the value staff and self-esteem.  If the Moon is not nourished they are in danger of becoming too paranoid and self-critical too easily by focusing on the controversies seeking attention recognition, that recognition and appreciation that he can not give himself.

Moon in Libra

Regaining peace and harmony is essential for people born with the Moon in this sign.  A peace they are willing to maintain at all costs, rather than conquer.  To feel safe this Moon needs to feel that it is free to choose, thanks to the gift of diplomacy.  They must feel that they can manage to maintain an inner balance.  Probably they are shocked deep in the soul, so every time it is difficult to maintain this coveted peace.

If you were born with this moon can help you maintain balance nourishing it through beauty, harmony, perhaps admiring a sunset or painting a picture, photographing nature or admiring the beauty and harmony around you without ever paying a too high a price to win, denying your emotions and your desires just to maintain a superficial balance.  If not nourished this moon will always feel insecure and threatened from within.

Moon in Scorpio

Intensity is the watchword.  Your emotions are intense and without boundaries.  The souls born with Moon in Scorpio are pushed to explore every taboo, to live and to recognize within themselves a perhaps repressed emotion that must rise to the surface.  Therefore, they do not always feel safe and secure emotionally, but very threatened.  At which point (sometimes) to trigger a defense mechanism that leads to a counter-attack even before the other has really attacked or had the slightest intention.

The right direction to take is in fact within themselves, intimate unconscious.  The universe would like to invite the souls born with this moon in the depths of one’s soul to help in an introspective journey that allows them to be able to regain a true inner security and no longer feel threatened.  These Souls need to be honest to the end and hate hypocrisy.  Rather they tend to be reserved and introspective and won’t let go of their emotions easily.  If they do not allow these emotions to penetrate deeply, focusing on externals to protect themselves, they could become paranoid and too suspicious of anyone who tries to get too close.  But their potential has no limits; they can achieve anything.

Moon in Sagittarius

Freedom and adventure nourish the hearts of those souls who are in search of their truth.  They re invited to expand their emotions with confidence and optimism.  It may be that at a karmic level something has gone wrong, therefore if they do not always feel safe to expand their emotions with confidence; they are invited to nurture this Moon with the adventure offering something new.  It’s a trip or a course that can bring new enthusiasm and life blood.  The evolutionary purpose for those born with this moon is to regain confidence!

Particularly generous souls, energy tends to manifest itself outwardly as it is.  In life they need to regain and maintain confidence and optimism.  If not properly nourished the souls born under this sign will be convinced to have the truth in hand, living life to convince others.

Moon in Capricorn

The evolutionary purpose for people born with the Moon in this sign, is to learn to express themselves emotionally in the right measure and therefore to avoid getting too much influence and overwhelmed by the emotions that might once have created a problem.  No cold souls like classical astrology tends to define, but independent souls and determined.

To feel secure and confident of themselves, souls born under this sign have to face a brave emotional journey that will help them regain emotional security step by step.  Are pushed to mature emotionally and walk this emotional journey will need moments of solitude that become for them, a source of nourishment.  If not nourished, this moon will tend to control every emotion as a defense mechanism, preventing love to get out, but also to enter, assuming a continuous emotional control.

Moon in Aquarius

Freedom to be who they want to be and regain the right to be unique and perhaps different from others.  This is the evolutionary purpose of souls born with the Moon in Aquarius.  The way they feel and experience emotions may not be understood and often for the soul to feel safe and secure, could deny their emotions to avoid being excluded.  But its evolutionary invitation is just the opposite.  At the risk of feeling excluded, they must express their emotions for what they really are!

The Soul wants to regain the freedom to be who he really is, without fearing anything.  To feel nurtured and safe, must break free from external control that others exert over them, or that they (to prevent rejection) exerts on themselves.  This could in fact lead to an emotional detachment bringing it to deny itself and his own emotions in search of safety. To feel safer, they must be surrounded by people with similar feelings, ideas and opinions, with which they can afford to show their uniqueness.  If not nourished, this moon, manifested by stubbornness thinking about being unique and better than the others, taking more and more distance from others and from their own emotions.

Moon in Pisces

The souls born with this moon are very emotional and sensitive.  Their evolutionary intention is to develop empathy and compassion and to perceive the world around them and the other without any border.  This energy can become destabilizing because (since there are no barriers) they could absorb the emotions of others, becoming their load.

To nurture this Moon and to learn how to protect themselves, meditation becomes a vital tool, but also dance, music, art and contemplation, means that helps the blood to use these vibrations to enter into a trance and to reconnect to the created and to their essence.

Souls are pushed to feel part of the whole, perhaps because they have something to forgive and to be forgiven.  If this Moon is not nourished the souls affected by this energy are likely to shut themselves up in their imaginary world becoming easily accused of “being in the air” and in their world, a world of their useful imagination, a world that, however, should not become a refuge, but rather a true and deep contact with all of creation.

SAMANTHA KING: “Your Two Conflicting Personality Traits And How To Make Peace Between Them, Based On Your Zodiac Sign”

gemini-dream-shadowlee-is-3

Aries

You’re a free spirit who enjoys adventure and craves for authenticity in life, but your perfectionist sidekick prevents you from savoring joy and getting lost in the moment.  Consider allowing yourself to sit with your emotions, no matter how inconvenient they are, and accept that you can only influence what is in your control.

Taurus

You’re a pleasant and trustworthy companion, but you hardly find it in you to trust others.  While you invest yourself a lot in relationships, you ban people from your life without second thoughts when things don’t go your way.  Learn to make room in your life for tolerance, empathy and mutual respect, and you might discover your opposing traits can reach conciliation.

Gemini

You want to be friends with everybody, but you can’t accept the differences in people (or in yourself).  It is only when you are willing to take people for who they are you will find solace in the company of kindred spirits.

Cancer

You’re a hopeless romantic, but you easily get bored.  Your passionate core makes you invest a lot in relationships and even spill the three magic words way sooner than your partner may be prepared to hear them.  You want it all and you want it now, but your interest fades away as soon as you get to know the other better.  Learn to channel your energy in rationalized bits and accept that keeping yourself focused on other aspects of your life as well (not just your love life) can present you with serendipitous moments.

Leo

You enjoy helping others on a material plan, but you’re greedy with emotional support, and this often makes you feel misunderstood or not thanked enough for.  Learn that in life we need to give in order to receive, and while helping a friend get a job is a selfless and wonderful act, they may rather be more in need of encouragement so they get things done themselves.

Virgo

You’re often stuck in between the need to ground yourself and follow a strict system of values and morals, and the desire to break free and live spontaneously regardless of what happens tomorrow.  You love being the center of attention, but you grow jealous once you feel ignored.  You can make ends meet by allowing yourself to be both rigorous and creative, by turning your inner control freak into a master of imaginative planning.

Libra

You’re chasing eternal love but you’re unwilling to work for it.  Your seductive element likes all things beautiful and inspiring, but when the script in your head fails to match reality you bail out without much explanation.  Learn to look more deeply into things and take the time to actually know a person, you might be surprised that the one thing you’ve been looking for is right under your nose.

Scorpio

You’re very protective of your friendships, but also very vengeful.  If someone crosses a line with you, you shun them without further notice and oftentimes without giving them the benefit of a doubt.  Learn from your own sensitivity that nobody’s perfect and channel your inner strength into forgiveness — everyone you meet holds an inner battle that you may not know about.

Sagittarius

You’re a natural born empath, but you keep too much to yourself and that makes it hard for you to control your anger.  You show a lot of concern to other people’s needs but fail to express your own concerns up to the point where you lash out at others.  Create balance in your life by addressing your own needs and expectations openly to people and learn to say no when you can’t deal with something any longer.

Capricorn

You’re kind hearted and generous but lazy.  You easily get comfortable around others and once a friendship, relationship or business deal is sealed, you’ll just lie there and consider yourself involved just because you’re present.  Learn to participate and become more proactive and engaged in your own life and partnerships, it takes two to tango and three to make a happy crowd.

Aquarius

Your craving for independence, wanderlust and adventure and your consuming desire to love, be loved and share a fantastic relationship can mend together beautifully once you stop trying to control your future and accept that while not all people are as libertine as you, the key to successful connection is embracing each others’ differences.

Pisces

You put on a fantastic show of seduction and mystery, but you’re needy.  Remember, the things you’re looking for in others are the things you mirror to the outside world.  Spend more alone time with yourself and your needs and adjust your expectations of others accordingly to what you can offer the world.
