Accelerate Your Ascension in May 2016
Connecting with Wesak Season Blessings

by Selacia

The month of May can be a very potent time with Wesak season blessings in the air and more energetic support for connecting with spirit and your inner wisdom. Yes, we are in review mode because of both Mars and Mercury being retrograde. That review however can be just the catalyst needed to break free of longstanding limitations! In this article, I’ll outline a few ways you can use the May energies to accelerate your ascension, propelling your enlightenment to a whole new level.

Wesak Season Blessings

As a reminder, Wesak is an annual celebration of enlightenment. It’s your opportunity each year to connect with an expanded level of spiritual assistance made available when Masters like the Buddha, Jesus, and Kuan Yin interact with humanity in a more tangible way. The Masters who came before provided a template for enlightenment, reminding us that we have the same potential they did.

You carry seeds of this potential within your DNA, meaning it’s naturally within you. As part of the ascension process, more of this potential is cultivated and ripens. During the window of the annual Wesak season this can be accelerated as there are fewer veils between humanity and the spiritual dimensions. This helps facilitate an interchange of energies, blessings, and spiritual insights from the Masters.

For the most tangible experiences, be mindful of these energies and invite a personal connection. Specific examples include attending an actual Wesak meditation to connect with the Masters. Dream work can be very beneficial too. Even if you seldom remember your dreams, set intentions ahead of sleep to connect with helpful insights and energy clearings. Remember: blessings can come in many forms and when you least suspect. Be open-hearted and available.

Slow Going – In Your Imagination or What?

Time warps may be common this month due to the retrograde cycle. Don’t be surprised if you mix up dates or forget some other detail involving timing. Your sense of time may simply be off, or you may become uncharacteristically spacey. Most likely your brain and memory are just fine, but the energies can throw you off. Allow for this and do your best to get and stay grounded.

Retrogrades can have you feeling like nothing is happening. Don’t allow your mind to go there. Plenty of progress can occur during a retrograde. Stay active and do your inner work and life retooling to set new more workable foundations. A life rework may not look like much while it’s under way, but it can be power-packed and juicy for your next steps. While your reworking is taking place, ask deeper questions and allow for regeneration. You want to have plenty of energy for what’s coming next! Meanwhile know you aren’t actually standing still, even if your mind perceives little movement.

Moon Watch

Watch for May 6 New Moon and May 21 Full Moon – two times of potential amplified blessings and a jump start for your life. The Full Moon lands on our Wesak Celebration with the Masters too, making it an extra special day and weekend.

3 Questions to Ask Now

Accelerate your ascension process by regularly asking yourself the following questions. You can ask them in a general way, as though directing them to the Universe for response, then paying attention to what shows up. You can ask them before sleep. You can include them in your regular daily inner work process, as a bonus tool for this year’s Wesak season. Asking sets in motion a response.

What am I not seeing that gets in the way of my spiritual progress?
What key pattern or approach needs to change before I can take my next big step?
How can I be more loving and kind – to myself and others?

Insights from these three key questions can open up a vast reservoir of positive energies. As you begin to act on them, amazing miracles can unfold.

Full Moon Blessings

Creating and Receiving Blessings at 4/21 Full Moon

by Selacia

Full Moons can be powerful times of personal growth, breakthroughs, and celebrations. At times like the April 21-22 Scorpio Full Moon, you may notice energies are more intense and amplified. Emotions, perhaps normally under wraps, tend to come to the surface. You could be over-the-top joyful and fire-hot angry, all in one day.

Full Moon Spotlight

There’s a spotlight on things around this time, bringing to awareness details of things. Insights can be profound – whether from dreams, meditation, simple inner inquiry, or observation. Solutions can come to you, seemingly from out of nowhere, helping you to make life shifts or heal difficult situations.

Many people feel an expanded energy for several days in advance and afterwards. While it’s common to feel on overload when things get intense, don’t overlook the blessings of this monthly cycle. Right now in particular, with everything else going on, it can be very useful to focus on potential blessings you can create and receive at this Full Moon.

Full Moon Blessings Tips

Applying these tips over the next few days can help you create optimal energies and outcomes. When you are in optimal flow, you are a better magnet for blessings.

You: to receive available blessings, keep yourself in the picture. You are at the helm of your creations after all, and that includes managing your own energy so you are open and available to receive from the universe. As a divine changemaker you remember your role at the helm of creating positive change. Continually strive to embody this role more fully.

Space: insights and breakthroughs can come more easily when your inner and outer space is clear and uncluttered. Even one key insight you didn’t have before could lead to huge blessings in your life! Manage your inner space with regular stillness, meditation, and contemplation. These states are more easily accessed when you turn off your runaway mind with its repetitive thoughts about the past and future. Manage your outer space with a combination of decluttering and choosing the circumstances of how you spend your time. Know that you choose who or what you let in during personal time – consciously or unconsciously. Even an unconscious choice to allow unnecessary distractions is a choice and can impact your ability to be still.

Windows: use the potency of this Full Moon to benefit from windows of opportunity. At times like this, those windows can open wide so you want to be awake to them. Keep in mind that some opportunities may be some sort of lesson in disguise – something your soul wants you to see or move through to get to the next window that has amazing blessings. When you consider things that way, even the preparatory window is a blessing. In other circumstances, your window may actually be associated with a huge blessing on its own, arising from recent struggles now being transformed into a wondrous gift. Still other windows of opportunity can come like a lightning bolt. Blessings like this are sometimes missed because the person was not present and did not expect something to happen. As an example, a man could meet his soulmate when out with friends but not connect the dots.

Considering the above factors, do your best to be consciously in charge of yourself and surroundings over the next few days. That sounds so easy, of course, but in practice it indeed is a developing skill. Trust that you are encoded as a divine changemaker to become a master of such skills. Know that you have abundant resources to create blessings and to be a blessing to the world.

April Tune Up

fairies in the hand

April Tune Up
Expand Your View of Yourself

by Selacia

We’re headed into some tricky energy territory over the next several weeks. Between the 10-week Mars Retrograde starting April 17 and 3-week Mercury Retrograde beginning April 28, you will want to become mindful of potential challenges as well as remedies. Knowing about the beneficial energies available during this cycle will help you too. Foresight about these things will help you to soar above troubles that appear along the path.

Intend right now that you will bring your conscious heart-centered self into all things. This includes self-talk, communications with others, time-sensitive projects, and actions to bring your light into the world.

Background on Impacts

In the last couple of years even people not typically impacted by energy cycles are feeling the ups-and-downs. It’s a palpable experience, even for those without a conscious reference point to put things in perspective. This is important to understand as you move through the next several weeks. Many people around you, including perhaps loved ones or coworkers, will be feeling these intense energies. Don’t be surprised if tempers rise more visibly and people voice opinions they usually would keep to themselves. It could get messy, even volatile. Allow for that. Be kind.

Mars: this is a planet of action, initiative, motivation, goals, and self-identity. Planetary cycles of Mars impact everyone. A retrograde can be especially challenging when you are in a hurry to get something important completed or when you are unclear about your overall purpose or direction. There’s a flip side however. These retrograde cycles are really the perfect time to self-assess, looking more deeply at your motivations and notions of success. It’s quite helpful to give yourself a tune-up during this time, asking deeper questions about where you are headed, why you want to go there, and what success will look like when you arrive. A very fruitful process!

Mercury: this is a planet of communications, technology, and messages sent or received. Whatever cycle Mercury is in will impact you daily because your very existence is experienced through your senses and messages coming from a plethora of places and dimensions. Mercury is like your nonstop antenna to self and the world. That antenna operates even during sleep via your dreams. When Mercury goes retrograde, you could feel like your timing is off or slowed. You may miss meetings altogether. Communications you send out may seem to go into a wormhole. Deadlines you set may seem elusive, as though the timing you established has mysteriously moved ahead.

One reason you may feel more effects of these upcoming retrogrades is that we don’t often have Mars and Mercury simultaneously in retrograde. Mars only has that cycle each two years. Experiencing both planets in retrograde, therefore, means extra amounts of intensity.

Tips for Divine Changemakers

Use this upcoming period to ask yourself deeper questions, do inner work, and reevaluate approaches. As you do this, you may invent a new way to do something or discover a simple solution to a problem that has eluded resolution for years!

To move through this cycle with fewer re-dos, approach your tasks slowly and patiently. That’s easier said than done of course, but well worth the effort. If something is not moving, change your irritation into patience by trusting there is a reason for delays. Invite your inner wisdom to help you see beyond the delays, using some of the seemingly wasted time to reassess goals and approaches.

A good question to ask daily: “What am I missing or not seeing that relates to my success?”

Consider that this cycle is a perfect time to expand your view of the identity you hold for yourself. Do this even if you recently had a major life overhaul. We are vast multidimensional beings, and as such, must continually update our energies. This includes the very foundational piece of looking at our self-identity and what motivates us to get up each day and do what we do.

Wesak season: Coming up in May is the annual Wesak season with its abundant blessings and connections with the masters like Kuan Yin and Buddha who set the template for enlightenment. During this auspicious time, humanity is showered with blessings and light infusions from the higher realms. You can tap into this energy at an official Wesak celebration and also on your own with intent. Helpful tools to connect with the Wesak blessings include meditation, sacred sound, and prayerful intentions. Being mindful of this fortunate time of blessings can help you maintain a higher frequency as we move through the retrograde cycles.

Leading up to the official Wesak, the energies will be shifting frequently and it will take increasing spirit connection and skill to adapt to the many twists and turns. Do your best to stay in your heart and walk gently. Trust that you are loved beyond what you could possibly imagine.

Lightness of Being

Tips for Lightness of Being

by Selacia

With lighter energies in the air now, it’s time to create in some brand-new ways and leave behind old habits developed during more rocky cycles. Ready?!

Since we’re sitting in a powerful two-week window of beneficial energies after this week’s New Moon, this is really a perfect time to refocus and reapply some helpful principles you likely understand very well. Hence this article is to address a few of those. It’s interesting how our logical mind can remember helpful principles, yet not apply them when we are stressed or emotionally responding during crisis. Restart your energies in a positive way with these tips below.

5 Tips for a Positive Restart

FIRST, remember that words are instrumental in creating your experience. Change the tone from punitive and fear-based words so often a part of both inner and outer dialogue. Example: replace the word worry with concern. This gives a much lighter feel, is present oriented, and can give a more grounded context.

SECOND, be diligent with self-censoring as you say the words “I am.” Catch yourself before you complete the sentence with adjectives like tired, broke, depressed, or stuck. You want to emphasize positive states and potentials, not negative ones. Only you in the moment can monitor your own mind.

THIRD, take care of yourself. After stressful cycles like we had in March, even a healthy person may feel a bit depleted or simply need some boosting. Get outside and exercise. Eat real food. Be kind to your body, giving it what it needs. In need of some life direction or simply validations? Consider seeking help from a trusted practitioner who can neutrally see a larger picture.

FOURTH, add more fun into each day. Don’t make this into a project, but do find sources of pleasure and laughter.

FIFTH, update the view you hold of yourself. Do this regularly, not just after a whirlwind eclipse cycle like we had in March. You are constantly evolving and shifting into more lightness of being. At your core, too, is a very unique energy no one else has! Own your uniqueness and honor it. The more you do this, the more the world will respond to you in positive ways. You then become a magnet for good, attracting the people and situations that can help you be all you are meant to be in this precious life.

Last Twelve Days

Navigating Last 12 Days of 2015
Energy Update Ahead of Solstice and Christmas Full Moon
by Selacia

With just 12 days left in 2015, it’s helpful at this juncture to consider the big picture of your life and the physical reality you find yourself in now. In this article, I provide insights to help you access this larger view as well as suggestions for making the most of this year-end cycle.

Coming Solstice and Full Moon

With Solstice arriving 12/21 and a rare Full Moon occurring Christmas Day, the week ahead is an excellent time for a boosting of your spirits and finding enjoyment in little things as you do a year-end review. Give yourself permission to have fun and let go a little more than usual right now. It hasn’t been an easy year and most likely you had more issues than usual to contend with.

Most things involve other people in some way – that means your relationships with other people do have a lot to do with your experience of this world. These relationships can be casual, very close, or anywhere in between. All of them count. It’s not so much the people per se. It’s how you relate to those people and with what level of consciousness. Being present, kind and loving is always the highest choice as you relate to others.

Relationships in Spotlight Now

This weekend’s energies may put relationships in the spotlight, illuminating things between you and others. More clarity can lead to healing of even longstanding wounds. Do your best to be open, engaged in a present way, and compassionate.

If you interact with someone who recently pushed your emotional buttons, consciously intend to be open enough to hear that person in a new way. Give that person your full attention so you can fully take in both the words and energy behind the words. Don’t forget to include spirit in the mix – ask your higher self for insights about optimal ways to respond. Remember: you are not required to have a response to every statement or action. Sometimes it’s more important to listen and hold a loving space between you and the other person.

People are an essential part of your feedback system. They are the mirrors you cannot provide on your own – a true gift on your path of enlightenment. People and really everything in your world make up your ongoing feedback system, reflecting back to you energies you have put in motion and thoughts you have had. Your self-actualization occurs in a process over time as you learn to master the art of relating to others.

Factor in Pets

Even pets play a significant role. Pets can pick up on and respond to your upset and inner conflicts as well as your joy and contentment. Next time your pet acts out, consider how your mood may be a factor and do what you can to lighten up. Factor in the holiday chaos, too, for pets can be impacted by bursts in activity, becoming overly excited.

Factor in Rare 12/25 Full Moon

On Christmas this year we have a rare Full Moon, adding an amplification factor to the day. This Full Moon can bring illumination, too, people gathering together having aha moments about their roles and potentially connecting with the most important bond they have – love.

Regardless of what day it is and whether you are celebrating with others, do remember the love that is your true nature. Allow that love to naturally arise from within you and express it in some fashion daily.

Each time you do this, you will have seized your moment to shine your light in a powerful way. As you do this, you empower yourself and you help others to see their own light. It’s like you are a bridge, helping someone who feels uncertain to find their way. Do not underestimate the benefit of such a seemingly simple gesture.

Know that as a divine changemaker you are actually encoded to be such a beneficial bridge – embrace your role!

Countdown to 2016

As we get closer to 2016, take moments of quiet time to self-reflect. Become still and do some inner inquiry for a larger view of where you sit right now. Chances are, if it’s been a tough year, you may have doubts about your progress and discount your actual growth to date.

Ask spirit to give you a fuller picture and to remind you of your gifts and abilities. As you connect with this information, it may be helpful to make a short list of what you are good at and what you like doing. Don’t overthink this – just write down a few things that immediately come to you. Place your list someplace where you can see it over the next several days before year-end.

If there is a project, relationship, or perhaps a whole new life direction you feel is on hold or challenged, reflect on the issue before sleep – then ask for a dream to bring clarity and ideas of action steps.

Tip: how you end 2015 helps determine how you will begin next year. Consider how you want to end the year and towards that end what you could do or avoid doing to make the ending a positive set up for the coming year. Endings set the foundations for what’s coming next. Create wonderful by giving your attention to this now. You deserve a wonderful 2016!

Create Peace

Create Peace
Tips for Creating Peace and Feeling Peaceful in Turmoil
by Selacia

The world is in accelerated turmoil this month, fueled by uncertainty and a fear-induced crisis of confidence. You may be asking yourself how you can create peace and feel peaceful when the world has gone mad. That indeed is an excellent question to be asking right now. Even in the asking, you can begin to tap your inner wisdom that has a larger view of things.

Divine Changemakers Demand Truth

Staying awake enough to ask questions and to demand truth is essential to your role as a divine changemaker. After all, you cannot be a positive force for change when you are in the dark about situations or when you blindly accept what you are told by authority figures. Check the facts for yourself. Question the underlying motives of people who are expressing opinions.

In moments when it simply feels too intense knowing about the world’s disarray, take a personal time out when needed. Self-care is essential when you feel stressed.

December Moon Cycles

Today is the first day of a moon cycle culminating in a rare Full Moon on Christmas. Each time we have a New Moon as we have today, it’s like a door opens into a new space within which you can create something new or add an expanded element into a current situation.

Using this cycle: consider what you can personally create with this New Moon; consider, too, what you can do on an everyday basis to express love, tolerance, and acceptance. Right now on the world stage we are seeing loud examples of the polar opposite of those qualities.

Remember: many things are not as they appear during humanity’s awakening process. Often those speaking loudest or with the most charisma are tuning into fears lots of people have on an unconscious level. Apply discernment and your intuitively guided reason to all you take in during these moments.

2016 Themes: Truth & Justice

This Sagittarius New Moon is likely to stir themes of purpose, meaning, justice, and truth. The last two on the list will be dominant themes for 2016 as I wrote about in my annual “2016 Predictions.” This month indeed is an energetic set up for what we will be focusing on next year. We have major opportunities in 2016 to shift how we live together and to take constructive actions to create a more loving world. What we will be seeing as the year progresses is that key issues long percolating within humanity will be front and center in an inescapable way.

Things are not hopeless and we are not helpless either. We as divine changemakers can stay awake and conscious through these crazy times. When our world is polarized and others are unconsciously playing out their fears, we can make our best efforts to be awake and loving – being the voices in the crowd with the courage to take the high road of spirit. This is a choice we can and must make to have the kind of world we want.

Creating Peace in our Upside Down World

Creating peace in this upside down world is not easy. Here is a simple guideline that when followed does make a difference. Stop focusing on enemies constructed within your own mind or within the minds of others. From a spiritual perspective you have no enemies and no one to fight. The very notion of the enemy keeps you at war with an invisible force. Choose peace.

Accept the fact that many people are consciously asleep right now. They want love and peace just like you do, however. Keep that in mind as you witness bickering, prejudice, hateful accusations, name calling, and threats to exclude groups of people.

Be a force of peace by focusing on goodness and intentionally seeing the connection between all beings and all things. Do not let fear cause you to label others or to sort things into good and bad. Apply love wherever you see polarity, division, and discrimination.

300 Years from Now

Looking back on these times 300 years from now, you will be grateful for the opportunity you had to be here now – witnessing and being an instrumental part of humanity’s return to love. When you doubt this, go to your heart and ask spirit for a higher view. Ask to feel the love that you are at your core.

Change the Ending

Energy Update

End 2015 on a High Note
Change the Ending with These Tips
by Selacia

The way you end 2015 can significantly influence how you experience the start of 2016. Next year will be full of rich opportunities to express more of your soul’s purpose. You want to be ready when the doors open – ideally holding the highest vibration possible and being clear about your life and what you want to create next.

This recommendation holds for any year, yet is especially relevant at this pivotal juncture. It’s easy to get sidetracked this time of year. Ironically, while the natural response at end-year would be to self-reflect and recalibrate energies, you may feel in chaos. Your mind may be bouncing between holiday focus, complexities of unresolved issues, unsettling global news, and family dynamics naturally catalyzed this time of year.

Come Back to the Big Picture

For perspective, come back to the big picture with the long view of your journey. After all, you are eternal and here on purpose. Being here now was an orchestration of your soul, desiring to be a part of this important historical time.

You may have lived during other key historical periods – like during the Egyptian golden years, times when Buddha or Christ lived, or at the height of the Mayan civilization. However, this cycle indeed carries the highest potentials of any to date.

How can this be? Consider the juxtaposition of countless helpful factors, the sheer numbers of us here now, and the critical mass of awakening occurring. Only in hindsight will we be able to grasp the significance of these historical moments.

As mentioned in my “2016 Predictions” themes of truth and justice from 2015 will continue front and center in 2016. The energy cycles of next year will add to the momentum and attention on what’s out of balance.

The shift under way now and in 2016 can result in amazing breakthroughs and a kind of spiritual maturing not possible in earlier cycles.

Embracing Your Role

This month as we prepare to end another year you may feel like you have gone back in time – experiencing highs and lows along with chaos you felt in earlier years. Things really aren’t the same, however, and more importantly you are not the same being.

Big and sometimes incremental shifts have occurred within you and in your world. What can seem like the norm continuing in fact is something quite different – the new Earth you want may be much closer than you think. Hold that thought daily and do your best to stay positive and loving.

Change the Ending with These Tips

Did you know you can actually change the ending of 2015 and be better prepared to start next year on a high note? If that sounds too simple to be true, read on and experiment with these suggestions.

Take advantage of opportunities to personally stop the world and be still this December. Give yourself permission to disconnect from holiday activities and your “to do” list long enough to have regular inner refueling and rebalancing. As part of that, invite a higher view of your circumstances and focus on releasing dysfunctional energies so you can shine your light more brightly next year.

Contemplate the new, more expanded self that you want to embody and present to the world. For this vision, base it on the present and what you sense your potentials could be as the quantum being you truly are.

Forget about what you did before or who you thought you were before – make this vision brand new! Get ready to spread your wings without hesitation, knowing spirit is right by your side.

Angel Help

Connecting with Help on Your Journey  
by Selacia

We’re in the last stretch of an incredible year, a time when we stretched our minds and horizons in ways we can’t yet comprehend. It hasn’t been an easy year. In fact on many levels it may have felt more challenging than other recent years.

There is a rich tapestry of blessings available, however, from our efforts in continuing on and challenging ourselves to go to the deeper levels of our being. That’s what we as divine changemakers are encoded to do!

It’s important that while we recognize the challenges, the struggles, and the seemingly slow progress occurring – we also remain positive and committed to our ascension path. That goal must remain within sight and within our hearts going forward, our knowing that we are here on purpose to transform this world into one of love.

We can do this, and we are doing this.

When you have moments of doubt, remember this and come back to the big picture and the belief you set in motion likely even before this life began – to be a light revolutionary and see your vision manifest.

Abundance of Help

We have an abundance of help as we progress on our path. Remember that. Call upon that help. That help can come in many forms – from people, from angels and other guides, and from your own intuitive insights about what steps to take and when to take them for optimal results.

Sometimes the help we must resource is assistance with staying peaceful during chaos, uncertainty, and intense planetary cycles. More of those challenges are on the horizon, including a challenging Mars cycle that can lead to feelings of agitation, impatience, and general upset.

Focus on Blessings & Gifts

Coming back to the blessings and gifts of being here now. Don’t forget those. Allow a knowing and tangible experience of these things to come into your awareness after dreaming at night and when contemplating the big picture of your life. This will help you stay balanced and focused on the good you want to be creating.

Calling on Angels & Guides

Many people call upon angels and other guides for background support – asking for help with direction and with staying positive when things look bleak. While they won’t interfere with free will or prevent you from learning something your soul wants you to learn, these beings can be a significant sense of support and comfort on the path.

If you haven’t encountered your angels yet, this simply means you haven’t met them in a tangible way. Most people have angels guiding them and it’s not just this lifetime – they often are guiding companions across the centuries. They often will show up in the person’s energy field during a healing process – sometimes with a particular message for that moment.

Consider the possibility that one of your angels is wanting to get your attention in these moments of fast-moving changes. The guidance you receive could be just what you need to validate your next steps, or to simply feel more comfortable with current circumstances.

Selacia’s 2016 Predictions

Selacia’s Annual Predictions Article

small red heart

 

Selacia’s 2016 Predictions:
Year of Truth and Justice

by Selacia

It has taken a very long time for humanity as a collective to begin facing and openly debating closeted issues of truth and justice. Coming out of the shadows increasingly during 2015, awareness of these themes began reaching a critical mass. Yes, over the centuries we’ve had an endless number of revolutions, atrocities, and wars rooted in these themes. The difference in 2016 is our sheer numbers and a growing acknowledgement of what’s at stake if these issues are not addressed.

Major Opportunities to Shift How We Live Together

Oftentimes the way a year ends sets the stage for the next year. Themes and unresolved issues that reached a boiling point in one year tend to remain front-and-center. This is certainly the case for 2016, a year when we as a collective will have major opportunities to shift how we live together on the Earth.

When we study nature – observing mass species extinction and other human-induced problems like climate change – we have a litmus test of just how precarious life here has become. Climate change, in fact, is among the issues tied to truth and justice.

The whole notion of climate change has been made into a political vehicle, putting a shadow over the truth of what’s going on and delaying constructive action. At the same time, rising sea levels and barren farm fields will potentially become an injustice to millions of poor people around the world. While rich countries may have resources to help cope – at least for a while – the poor have no such options.

Cosmic Energies Illuminate Untruths, Injustices

In 2016 cosmic energies will put a growing spotlight on untruths and injustices throughout society. We’ve had a taste of this already, due to the long dance of Uranus-Pluto that has catalyzed a mega reworking of our world.

The needed changes are core-level, impacting how we relate to one another on basic levels. They involve long-established patterns of power mongering, inequality, oppression, and a veiling of information by those in power as a means of control.

Needed societal changes don’t come easily, so there is still a lot to unfold. It’s important that each of us remains strong and in our empowerment. Inner strength and heart-centeredness will be necessary to weather the ups-and-downs. We will need to be present and mindful of what we are creating with our thoughts and actions.

Role of Divine Changemakers

As divine changemakers, we know that we are quantum, creating our future a moment at a time. We stand at the forefront of the massive changes happening now. This is a role encoded within our very DNA. Each of our paths leading up to now, including earlier this life and past lives, has led to this role.

If you felt like you moved through a fiery transformational time in 2015, know that this tempered you and helped you for this next phase. The bigger shifts are not easy to make – you will feel them deeply, often to your core.

Even before 2015, you went through some big changes. On the other side of them now, you are stronger, more whole, more accepting, and more loving. Those qualities are vital for your enlightenment and for the planetary influence your light is to have.

What does this mean? Each time you become more whole and more loving, you help humanity as a whole and raise consciousness across the planet. Do not underestimate the power of this. When you see injustices and lies, remember your role. Do the best you can to embody justice and truth sourced from love.

Be a Neutral Observer

As 2016 progresses, the things that separate people will be in the spotlight. This includes everything from outmoded laws, societal structures, prejudices, and dictatorial regimes. The talk may get loud, the actions messy, as people on both sides of issues resort to fear and finger pointing.

There is good news in this! Loud and messy gets more attention and has the potential for the bigger shifts needed now. Keep that in mind throughout 2016 as things heat up. Rather than go into fear or anger about how long the changes are taking, use each instance to go within and see how the outer may apply to inner changes you can make.

A change in view within can make you more effective and perhaps launch a new element of how you serve in the world. Taking things to the personal level first, rather than being angry at the upside-down world, gives you spiritually-grounded power!

For healing and transformational change, issues must be brought to light and seen for what they are. Do what you can to stay neutral as you process social media discussions and the news. There is a lot of fear in the air – it must be brought to light in order to change the status quo. Inherent to the human condition is a learned fear-based response to the unknown and “outsiders.” This is nothing new of course. What’s different now is the cumulative effect of raised awareness and the numbers of people who are connected in real time to what’s happening globally.

Fear-based labeling of people, religions, and countries must be avoided if we are to have a peaceful world. That’s not always easy, even for those on the path of awakening – the fear and DNA-level prejudicial conditioning is that strong. Everyone has it. Therefore, be watchful for your reactions when you hear about refugees settling into your city or construction nearby of a place of worship involving a faith different from yours.

From a higher perspective, knowing we are eternal beings with many lifetimes before this one, all of us have at some point been a refugee. Even considering this lifetime, if you trace your lineage back far enough, don’t you think some of them were refugees?

Fear and separation have been intertwined forces in our society for thousands of years. As long as people fear their neighbors and view others as outsiders, humanity will remain mired in endless senseless battles. Similarly, an uneducated populace is not equipped to express itself in an empowered way. Uneducated is more than lack of education – it is also misinformation served up by media controlled by the elite.

Divine Changemaker Tips for 2016

As you know, this is not your ordinary life and you have no ordinary life purpose this time either. You are a divine changemaker, choosing to be awake for your biggest adventure yet!

Here are a few tips to help you move through 2016 with empowerment and relative calm. I use the word relative here, as you will of course have ups-and-downs along with stress as your world continues its mega restructuring.

FIRST, know that a time is coming when truth and justice will prevail on Earth. Think quantum and big picture when you consider this. Make allowances for the ripples of seeming setbacks along the way, trusting that love can move even the biggest obstacles. Love is the most powerful alchemy there is. Be relentless with your love.

SECOND, if you find yourself reacting strongly to an injustice in the news, consider that at a DNA level some of your own ancestral injustice issues may be getting stimulated. Go within and explore this. If you sense that your ancestors suffered an injustice and you may be carrying some of their pain in your DNA, seek healing at that level. This will help you and your ancestors.

THIRD, stay in touch with your body and feelings so you can consciously and appropriately respond to life events. You are meant to be alive now, moving through these moments. Your body may sometimes have unusual symptoms as you process things. All of a sudden, for example, you may become tired for no apparent reason. Tune into your body and if you need a short break or rest, take it. Similarly, if you become emotional, check in with yourself to know why. Process the feeling before you engage with the world so you can be clear and effective.

FOURTH, strive to be more discerning. Be your own truth watchdog. Question your questions. Do this for increased discernment and clarification. Example: when something rings true for you and you have received an inner validation that seems to validate that truth, ask more questions.

If something you hear scares you, question why. Higher truths do not generate fear. Reasons you could be scared: (1) the messenger of a truth describes things for manipulative purposes (2) your own fear-based subconscious programming (3) what you heard is only part of the larger story you are not being presented.

Facts are facts. Presentation of facts is another matter. Be mindful as you digest facts to check out underlying meanings and potential agendas. Sometimes a presentation can be skewed so a person or group makes money – convincing you that they are the only ones with the information and you must come to them to have answers or to be safe from some consequence. Be aware.

FIFTH, since truth is a key theme for 2016 – previously hidden truths increasingly coming to light – regularly intend that you discover more of the things that have held you back. Invite spirit’s view of your hidden blocks to enlightenment – including what prevents you from being fully open, loving and compassionate. Include yourself in the picture. You must start with self-love and self-acceptance before you can fully embrace anyone else.

SIXTH, since justice is about fairness and in 2016 more of society’s long-unfair practices will be revealed – look within to understand your personal justice triggers. These may be big or small – like finding out you were paid half the salary of others or feeling that your roommate in the 2-bedroom apartment has the better bedroom. Look at these things. In your outer world during crisis, when you see something unjust, don’t look away and pretend it’s not there. Go to your heart and spirit for a higher view and respond to what you see from that place. Show others what it means to be conscious, awake and heart-centered during crisis.

SEVENTH, no matter how much darkness you encounter, the light is always there. Invite a connection with that light daily, within yourself and within others. Trust that you never walk alone. Spirit is always with you.

Processing Shock

Processing Shock:
-Tips for Responding to Events like Paris Attacks-
by Selacia

How do you process the plethora of violent events like happened last week in Paris and elsewhere? How do you put perspective on such horrific things that seem to be endless across the planet – at the same time you have your own personal series of crises to move through? In this article I address some spiritually grounded remedies for coping with our ongoing avalanche of crisis.

First – Come Back to Yourself Often

The first tip, coming back to yourself often, may help more than any other thing. When you have had a shock, personal or involving others, your body and being need grounding and centering. It’s important to remember that you in this moment are okay. Things and people around you may seem shaky, like there’s been an earthquake, and you may feel that way too due to a personal crisis. In the present moment, however, know that you are safe and your light will show you the way out of the darkness.

Second – Stay on the Middle Path of Balance and Truth

When there is a crisis in the world, covered by the media, it’s vital that you stay on the middle path of balance and truth. Many things are not as they appear. The news, for many reasons, often has only parts of a story and may also contain bias. Avoid preoccupation with media coverage of violence and speculations about what might happen next. As a divine changemaker, you want to strive for fearlessness and heart-centeredness as you do your best to stay positive and see the good in all things. Be among those who are conscious of the creation process, remembering that on both individual and collective levels we create the future. When enough of us focus on peace and create peace within, terror and violence have no hold.

Third – Remain Connected to Your Heart and Feelings

Shocking or sudden events can be overwhelming to the senses. For you as a sensitive being, you will feel these things more than the everyday person. Sometimes when people feel deeply, there’s a tendency to shut down and become numb or disconnected – as though they want to shut out the feeling and the world. An optimal way to process this is to stay in touch with what you feel, when you feel it. Own that feeling and work through it. It’s okay to feel angry or sad, but process these emotions before you say or do something you may later regret. Endeavor to have increasing compassion for self and others moving through these tumultuous times.

The Good News

With intensity like we have in these times can come major leaps forward! Sometimes in fact the cosmic energies seem to coax us into the fire of our own transformation – and we must move through that fire for self-liberation.

Remember through it all – love prevails and it will prevail on the Earth. That love is at your core and it will set you free.
