New Beginnings


New Beginnings at Full Moon
Prepare for Personal Breakthroughs
by Selacia

We are headed into a powerful doorway of opportunity at Saturday’s Full Moon. The energy is supportive of new beginnings and important personal breakthroughs. Take optimal advantage of the doorway by consciously stepping into this energy and being mindful of specific things you want to create. In this article I provide background and a simple process to do now in preparation.


Full Moons are typically high-energy times. Sensitives feel amplified energy and most people notice an overall intensity in the air. Issues can be illuminated more fully in such cycles – things brought to light that previously were unknown or difficult to discern. None of this is really unusual, yet in the radically transformational times of this decade, these kinds of cycles are amplified beyond the norm.

Themes of this weekend’s Full Moon include new beginnings, relationships, and the balance of opposites. Societal issues of truth and justice – prevalent throughout 2016 – will be front and center. These themes are likely to play out on the world stage as well as on an individual level.

Examples on a personal level: (1) a deeper questioning of your personal situations and sense of accomplishment (2) an expanded look at key relationships now out of balance (3) an intense desire to self-evolve and move forward, combined with feelings of being blocked from forward movement.

Most likely, you are feeling some of this intensity and push to evolve right now. The energy is in the air, stirring feelings and perhaps a deeper level of questioning. Just knowing that this kind of energy is universal now – can help you relax a bit.

The Energetic Doorway

This weekend’s energetic doorway is like a moment in time when you can have flashpoints of awareness and other personal breakthroughs. Some of these may be so unprecedented that your entire life view shifts in radical ways.

With a new view, your whole life may look vastly different than it did before – including your potentials and path forward. This could relate to your personal life path or expression of life purpose. It could be about key people too – those you know and perhaps those you will be meeting. It could relate to your ability to shine your light in a more meaningful and fulfilling way.

These new insights, when acted upon with divine timing, could radically shift your daily experience of what it is like to live in this world. In tandem with this, your resources may become expanded.

Full Moon Preparation Process

When we’re in a high-energy cycle with life-changing potentials, it’s helpful to be aware of them and make some preparations. This way you are consciously and actively involved – able to put your specific intentions in the mix. Here is a simple process to do between now and Saturday.

FIRST, when you are in a calm and unemotional state, become still and go within. Invite your higher wisdom to guide you and give you a bigger picture of your life than you normally envision. Be open to input from spirit about something brand-new that may be available to you in the near future.

SECOND, invite a knowing of three to five specific things that you would like to be part of a revolutionary new beginning for your life. Keep your focus on the positive and what you want to create that’s new – this is not about what you want to get rid of or eliminate.

THIRD, make a list of the specific things that you want. State each one as a positive intention – keep it present oriented vs projecting into the future. Example: “My relationship with my partner is now in balance and fulfilling, past hurts healed and our love having a brand-new start.”

FOURTH, take each intention on its own and focus on it with feeling and passion. Imagine the outcome as though it’s in the now, getting a sense of joy you feel in your heart.

FIFTH, invite spirit to work with you daily and in dream time ahead of the Full Moon. Ask for breakthrough insights and shifts in energy needed for full manifestation of your goals. Give your Higher Self permission to nudge you with ideas and reminders of what you should know. Ask for the courage, wisdom, and heart-centeredness needed to create the revolutionary new beginning.

SIXTH, once you have done these things, stay present to your thoughts and inner guidance so that you can be a full participant in your life shift. Remember daily that you are in charge of your life and what you are creating.

SEVENTH, let go and relax. Allow the universe to orchestrate from a quantum perspective. This means giving up the ego-based notion of instant results and allowing the miracles to unfold in divine timing.

As a divine changemaker, you are learning to work with energy and time in a quantum way. This in itself is a revolutionary response in a world conditioned by linear thinking. You are breaking the mold daily as you apply a quantum perspective. You are continually developing a more enlightened way of being, creating a path for others to follow.

Be grateful for this opportunity and for your life. This gratitude raises your frequency above the octaves of fear, helping you to find joy and fulfillment on your path of light.

Navigate October


Tools to Navigate October
Month of Potentials, Turmoil, Change
by Selacia

October is starting with both tensions and excitement in the air. Much is at stake in our society and in your personal life there’s likely a lot you are handling daily as you strive to cope and thrive. In this article I’ll give you an overview of both energetic components of October and the key situations unfolding which can impact you and the rest of humanity. Get grounded and invite your inner wisdom to participate with you as you read this.


As you know, we live in unprecedented times. The world around us is in turmoil as humanity has reached its tipping point of being able to sustain a livable, decent and just way of life for all beings. The entire planet, including all living things, is in a mega transformation that will determine how life continues for the coming decades and centuries.

We have a critical mass of awakening occurring, people across the world becoming conscious about situations they would have known nothing about in the days before we became instantly connected via technology. Much knowledge about how society is governed and about how and why wars are fought is becoming common knowledge.

It’s not like it’s really “new” information or a new development. However, when a populace begins waking up to very old unjust societal norms, there is naturally a mixed response. People suffering the effects of inequality and lack of opportunity may feel shock and anger – and with that a sense of powerlessness. Likewise, those benefiting from the old hierarchy may respond with a fiery push to maintain the status quo. This means that those in power may seek even more cleaver ways of obscuring truth.

Divine Changemakers Waking Up

As a divine changemaker you are among those consciously waking up to the state of things on our planet. As part of that you are in a huge rethinking phase of what these things mean for you personally.

Your role now is to be present to what’s going on, both in the world and in your own life. This includes remembering your larger purpose for incarnating now – to be one of those at the forefront of the massive changes unfolding, being a positive example of how to create a more just, peaceful, and loving world.

To succeed in fulfilling this larger mission, it’s necessary to develop a more regular connection to spirit and your inner guidance. It’s also vital to stay connected to the pulse of society, including what people are hearing about what’s going on. You will need your inner guidance to effectively monitor what you are taking in.

You cannot be truly informed if you depend solely upon the news or mems trending on social media. In fact, if you gauge truth solely from news or social media mems, you won’t have verifiable facts and you can be swayed by the constant emotionally-driven themes.

Make it your ongoing practice to discover and apply additional tools for discernment. Only with proper discernment can you assess what’s really going on – helping yourself and others.

October Overview

This month we have a number of key issues of significant potential importance to our future. Some may seem localized but remember that we are now a 24/7 connected world.

Key general themes:
(FIRST) power-hungry country leaders grandstanding, showing the world they know how to use nuclear weapons or that they will silence dissenters either through censorship or killing their own people (SECOND) country dictators instituting cyber wars to influence the direction of rival countries (THIRD) candidates for office using emotions and fear-based themes to get elected (FOURTH) news media providing provocative or shocking news that either distorts facts or leaves out relevant facts people need to discern truth (FIFTH) potentials for terror attacks – some staged for optimal effect by careful choice of location or timing, followed up with deceiving online publicity (SIXTH) the power elite taking advantage of the fact that the majority of the populace lacks skill and discernment to tell fact from fiction – with most people so distracted and overloaded that they don’t become present and question enough of what they take in (SEVENTH) elections taking place in countries like the US where money in politics skews results and the ability of whoever gets elected to govern efficiently (EIGHTH) truth and justice themes I described in my “2016 Predictions” are front and center, especially in this last quarter of the year (NINTH) planetary cycles unfolding now will be challenging people to find and use all of their inner and outer resources to find stability, discern truth, and discover how to thrive with a sense of joy and purpose.

Key Planetary Cycles

Key energy themes related to planetary aspects in October include those outlined here.

FIRST, we will experience more tensions and uncertainty involving radical and often sudden revolutionary forces unfolding across the planet. This is messy and people are likely to feel on edge, perhaps without knowing why. A big catalyst was the Uranus-Pluto square. For perspective, this is the rare and challenging line-up that in 2012-2015 led to a combination of progressive breakthroughs and violent reactions in our polarized world. It’s like the world and our view of it got turned upside down.

While the main thrust of the Uranus-Pluto square is not with us directly as it was, the tensions of that cycle are still very alive. They can be further triggered, too, when the planets line up as they are in October. We will be feeling the effects of that initial Uranus-Pluto square through the 2010s – making this an instrumental decade in determining humanity’s future.

SECOND, we have a number of planetary aspects this month that will catalyze issues involving relationships. Especially up for review in a big way are themes involving fairness, truth, boundaries, and balance.

Relationships, in fact, will be front-and-center over the coming year as cosmic energies help bring to light what’s working and what needs changing. You may experience this 1-on-1 with others in your circles. You may also observe this dynamic as you relate within groups of people. And since relationships are at the core of all negotiations and lawmaking, this will be playing out in business, in government, and between countries.

THIRD, whenever we have high-energy days like the October 15 Full Moon, other planetary aspects like those mentioned can have an amplified effect. At the same time, that Full Moon could lead to great personal breakthroughs and being able to move ahead in a brand-new and more productive way. This could relate to your personal life path, your relationship with a key person, or your ability to contribute to the world in a meaningful and lucrative way.

The Energies and You

As I mentioned recently on social media, the first days of October begin with a bit of a roller coaster ride for relationships. Tense cosmic energies may stir memories of past hurts. If this happens to you, avoid the temptation to act on these feelings. If something needs resolving, this may not be the best time to revisit old hurts – or you may have more to clear up later.

In general, here’s a way to understand planetary energies and how they can impact you on a personal level while also affecting others around you. Planetary aspects can trigger new insights that help you see yourself as the divine being you are. Likewise, aspects of the planets can catalyze troublesome personal issues that haven’t been resolved.

What I’m speaking of here is fear-based conditioning over a series of lifetimes that affects how you see yourself, the world, and your ability to thrive and live in joy.

DNA Patterns

Everyone is affected by unresolved past patterns – including country leaders, decision-makers at companies, negotiators at climate and peace talks, and individuals like you. Issues I speak of here are unresolved fear-based DNA-level patterns rooted in this or previous lifetimes. This is humanity’s conditioning over thousands of years.

Here’s an example. Oppressor Hitler likely had countless past life experiences, recorded in his DNA as beliefs or patterns, that allowed him to mesmerize a population to blindly follow him and assist him with inflicting unspeakable atrocities.

This occurred at a time of turbulence, when many people were disempowered and susceptible to manipulation. It wasn’t just Hitler. The underlying climate of fear and unrest was also a factor. In more recent times, there have been other leaders having a similar magnetism, able to gain followers and control through fear.

DNA – Akashic Record of Personal History

On a personal level, everyone carries in their DNA both enlightened qualities and patterns that prevent wholeness and having a life filled with love and joy.

The DNA, in fact, is like a vast akashic record – relating to the energetic record of personal history within your DNA. The DNA in your cells is a kind of record keeper of who you are and what you believe. The energetic imprints stored in your DNA are a record of your past, present, and future potentials. In my DNA intuitive healing work, I can psychically see such imprints.

Here’s a general example of DNA imprints in our present day times of chaos and media manipulation. Imagine that a woman is struggling with issues of truth, self-trust, and discerning fact from fiction. Consider that this woman in a past life was persecuted for telling the truth and for revealing her psychic abilities.

Most likely she has no awareness of her past life conditioning, being triggered now by world events. Without healing of these core issues in the DNA, she could have difficulty trusting her intuition – perhaps unconsciously avoiding psychic development as unsafe.

There are many potential consequences – one being a detrimental impact of her choices. Without trusting her heart and feeling confident about her decisions, she could be vulnerable to charismatic leaders using media manipulation to gain power over others – making choices she later regrets.

Some First-Hand Perspective

For background, my experience with these things is first-hand – not only from years as a professional DNA intuitive healer but before that having worked as a professional journalist reporting on global politics, macroeconomics, world trade, and society. In those earlier times, as I covered the White House, Congress, and international news from Europe, being a journalist was quite different from now.

We needed to validate our stories with quotable sources and the news had not yet evolved into tabloid entertainment funded by big business. There was still plenty of bias in the news. On the whole, though, those earlier times in journalism were a beneficial force in creating a more educated and conscious populace.

What You Can Do Now

Feeling frustrated with the pace of change to more enlightened views – in health care, politics, and other sectors? Hold your vision of a world in which health, happiness, and well-being for all people is the objective.

Use your voice and choose carefully what you buy and ingest. Trust that your energy and consciousness – put into action daily – is a pivotal factor in creating a more just and humane existence. Know that your presence, as you participate fully and consciously in our dance of change, is a beautiful gift you have to give the world.

Equinox Preparations

Equinox Gateway

Prepare for Equinox
Positive Potentials of Equinox Gateway
by Selacia

Equinox arriving Thursday is occurring during a powerful window of time.
Humanity has been doing lots of status-quo reviews, and most likely you have had your own on a very personal level.

The Mercury Retrograde, ending Wednesday, has been an excellent time to reassess your life circumstance and decide what you would want to keep or discard going forward.

If you’re not familiar with the planets and astrology, a cycle like Mercury Retrograde can often be the catalyst for some big rethinking of one’s life.

A Rethinking Phase

With so much changing now, and the constant influx of new factors to consider, it’s not surprising you would be in a rethinking phase – even without the Retrograde.

The two eclipses of September added an element of intensity to your self-introspection. The Pisces Lunar Eclipse during last week’s Full Moon provided a huge opening for looking with more clarity at your life.

Most likely, either consciously or in the dream state, you had new insights about what fuels your choices.

Role of Emotions

As part of this you may have awakened one day this past week with a brand-new perspective about your emotional life and the connection to motivations.
This is very helpful.

Changing patterns and life direction is much easier once you understand your inner motivations for doing things.
Emotions can play a key role.

An important part of spiritual awakening is to become more attuned to your own emotional states – learning to understand how emotions fuel responses to life events.

Emotions are front-and-center in much of global dialogue about the overhaul of society. There is a lot at stake and people hold very diverse views.

Your Daily Processing

Daily you are processing your own response to the world’s accelerating uncertainty and chaos. If you were consciously aware of all that you process in a single day, you would be stunned.

For context, this indeed is a unique time for the world. So much needs to shift and many things like climate and injustice are a crisis point. Political dramas, notably in the US, are driven by emotional fear-based themes.

With this background, you can better understand why your own emotions may be closer to the surface now.

After all, humanity across the world is interconnected. Further, some issues being debated on the world stage are almost as old as humanity itself.

DNA-Level Conditioning

That means your own past life DNA-level conditioning could be triggered now. Most likely you were subject to tyranny and injustice countless times before.

Therefore, in current moments your aware consciousness can respond in unfamiliar ways – due to belief systems you unknowingly hold on a subconscious level. You may get quite emotional and not know why. Example: in a past life you may have died in a revolution or you may have witnessed as your mother was unjustly sent to the gallows for suspected witchcraft.

Volume on “High”

This is especially true during energy threshold moments like Equinox. Life then may feel like someone turned the volume on “high” and your nervous system may go on alert more than normal. You may witness more emotional outbursts from others at work or home. It can feel like the lid on “normal” was removed – all kinds of weird things happening.

About Equinox Gateways

All Equinoxes are energy gateways, in part because of how the Sun aligns with the Equator and temporarily reduces Earth’s magnetic field.
This allows you to access potentially profound spiritual insights, connect with spiritual guidance, and have an expanded connection to other dimensions. In tandem with this, there’s an amplified effect at such a gateway, experiences in this dimension feeling super-sized.

This particular Equinox is a high-energy threshold involving balance and new beginnings. It’s an excellent time for inner work and meditation, helping you to connect with spiritual openings and to release past baggage so you can advance.

One of Best Transformation Thresholds in 2016

With the Sun moving into Libra, signaling a change of seasons, this Equinox is one of the best transformation thresholds so far this year!

Think of this Equinox Gateway unfolding Thursday through the weekend as a new pivotal choice point – a moment when you can propel yourself into new adventures housed in a higher frequency with quantum manifestation potentials.

Make the most of this by staying present, self-censoring negative thoughts, and making specific intentions of how you would like to see your light expressed. Approach this in a quantum way. That means seeing each moment and potential new moment as brand new and filled with a radiance that matches that of your soul. Visualize yourself living as soul starting now.

Days You Will Remember


Days You Will Remember
How to Process Your Experience
by Selacia

There are many days you will remember in this life. These are times that had such a profound impact on your view of existence that when you reflect on them, you have either great joy or deep sadness.


Most of us can remember where we were on 9/11. That day 15 years ago is one of those significant life moments we remember, indeed one that we can’t forget. The September 11th attacks are forever etched in our minds as a moment when the world all of a sudden felt less safe.

Processing Your Experience

In this article are some suggestions for processing key dates you remember – the good ones and the ones that stir deep sorrow.

Typical examples of good memories include the birth of a child, a wedding day, the day you met your soulmate, a positive milestone in your career, and a weekend spiritual retreat that was your first spark of awakening.

Interestingly, it is human nature – really the ego self and not one’s spiritual self – to put more focus on memorable days or experiences that cause one pain. Example: dates like 9/11 get lots of attention and receive an enlarged sense of importance. Just thinking about them easily stirs deep feelings of sadness, anger, and a host of other pain-based emotions. Reliving images and sounds makes it even worse.

Conditioning to Focus on the Negative

Individuals have this conditioning to focus on the negative – so do journalists who cover the news. Media companies, mostly owned by big business, are driven by profits and they have found that bad news sells. The media ratings spike each time they cover a disaster like a terror attack.

For perspective, there is plenty of good news out there. And there are countless journalists and other writers who share uplifting stories of courage and love. It’s helpful to remember this, especially on days like the anniversary of 9/11. Keep that in mind and look for the good in horrible things.

After all, the mind will go to where attention is placed. It’s okay to place one’s mind on news of 9/11 – that’s honoring those who died – but do it with discernment and conscious awareness. Don’t give your power away by going to the place of fear, worry, and projecting into the future what might happen because of 9/11.

Remember that humanity and individuals are basically good. Within each person is a divine spark. That spiritual nature is not related to religion, race, gender, or country of origin. There is basic goodness in each one of us.

I’m not talking about magical thinking here. All people possess both goodness and a shadow side. In addition, we now live at a time with the largest and most diverse human population the Earth has ever had! People are at various stages of awakening – some still deep asleep spiritually, and at the other end of the spectrum, others whose lives have been fully devoted to the spiritual path.

It’s best to avoid judgment and not waste your precious time categorizing yourself or others. The path to enlightenment is an ongoing process, not a ladder with levels you can measure. At any point on the path, a person can make an unwise choice that comes from ego. Even spiritual masters do this – there are levels of mastery.

Monitor Your Energy

When you review a tragic event like 9/11, do your best to monitor your energy and be present. Remember: 9/11 is not happening now.

Because of media frequent references to 9/11, though, you may feel like this experience is in the now moment. You may then worry obsessively about what might happen next.

Self-censor your mind. Only you can control your own mind in the moment. You can stop that inner terrorist – your conditioned mind – from keeping you in loops of fear. Remember to breathe and come back to the now.

Reflecting on Your Personal Sad Moments

In every person’s life will be sad moments, times when you lose something or someone. It’s part of being human. Key times many people remember include: the day a loved one died, the day a fire destroyed their home, or the day they were abruptly fired from a treasured job.

There is no way to measure the pain of such things. Each of them can trigger feelings of loss, and with that, a feeling that a part of oneself is lost. That is not true of course, but it can feel like it.

Realize when you are reflecting on loss that the thing or person is not your individual essence. That part of you is not the other person, not your house, not your job. You have an eternal spiritual nature that transcends everything else.

Your house and your job don’t go with you to the next life. Sometimes you reincarnate with some of the same people, but each person has his or her own unique spiritual evolution.

If someone you love dies, their spirit will go on and have many great adventures. As you reflect on losing this person, keep in mind that you don’t lose them as your conditioned mind has you believe. Yes, they are no longer in the physical and near you. Grieving can take time. Honor the grieving process – it is a way of honoring yourself, the other person, and your relationship.

Grieving is a temporary experience – you won’t have it forever. Focus on the good you had with the loved one. Keep the higher view in mind – love is the eternal bond. Your love for one another connects you across time and dimensions. This kind of love has no expectations, no rules, and no limitations. Love of this higher nature is boundless and honoring – there is a trust that the universe is orchestrating the perfect divine plan.

Beginnings and Endings

the earth - peace

Beginnings and Endings
-September Energy Tips-
by Selacia

Major change across the planet continues to accelerate this next month, catalyzing new levels of spiritual awakening and a greater transparency of previously hidden information. The New Moon Solar Eclipse of September 1 sets the stage for some significant cycles of beginnings and endings. These will be felt on both personal and planetary levels, people across the world receiving nature’s nudge to re-evaluate life happenstance.

New Starts and Completions

Solar eclipses characteristically catalyze new starts and completions. This is a natural cycle that impacts everyone. You don’t need to understand the planets or astrology to be affected. The energy nudge just is, whether you are aware or unconscious of it.

Since foresight is helpful on our path of spiritual awakening, allowing us to know in advance what energy we will work with, I mention planetary events like eclipses. We have two in September: Solar Eclipse September 1 and Lunar Eclipse September 16 at the Full Moon. Such days tend to be high energy – illuminating what we couldn’t see before and often indicating new pathways forward.

Being present and aware of such potentials can help you tap into helpful intuitive insights about your life and what you can do to move forward. Because of these energy potentials, the month of September is an excellent time for inner work, meditation, and healing of entrenched issues. It could feel like it’s easier to get to the root of things, finally laying a longstanding problem to rest.

Help from Mercury Retrograde

One factor helping you with life review is the Mercury Retrograde starting August 30 for three weeks. How can it help? Such cycles are a perfect time to revisit unfinished business, heal a key issue in your DNA, rewrite a business plan, consider upgrade options for your cell phone, review your future goals, and update approaches to being in the world. Example: you have long said that you want to invest in a new technology or update your physical appearance. September is a natural time to research your options.

Equinox Energy Gateway

A second helpful factor is the Equinox on September 22 when the Sun enters Libra – a powerful energy gateway that extends through that weekend. If you haven’t had the life breakthrough you seek before Equinox, that cosmic event could be just the catalyst you need. In fact, ripples of transformation energy are likely to be felt a number of days afterwards.

Tips for Success

Here are three tips for success this month. When you aren’t certain what to do on a given day, come back to these suggestions.

FIRST, regularly set your intentions for positive life changes you would like to create and ways of being you want to house. Remember that you as a divine changemaker are at the helm of your own life. Being conscious about what you want to create, and using your imagination to help create it, connects you with an unlimited storehouse of quantum potentials. Acting on what you have visualized becomes your own lightning bolt for manifestation!

SECOND, when you sense your energy has gotten stale – like from sitting too long or being isolated – get up and out of where you are. Take a walk or do something else for a bit. Get into nature or look out the window. These simple things can change your energy – like the refresh key on your computer.

THIRD, inquire within regularly to know what is shifting or needs to shift in your life. Ask for a dream or journal about this topic. Invite your higher self to reveal your highest priorities for change – things that need ending and things that need to start. Ask in a neutral way, letting spirit surprise you.

Trust that there is a higher purpose to your existence. Know that being alive now is a gift. Accept that the universe orchestrated your birth, birthplace, and birth time so that you could be an active participant in the birthing of a brand new type of world. That’s why you are here. Celebrate that.

Love from Other Side


Coping with Loss of Loved Ones
by Selacia

Loss is an intrinsic element of life, especially now. So much is changing so fast that the very fabric of your life can look different from day to day. Not all change is experienced as loss, of course, but sometimes even the idea of another change can push your stress levels over the edge.

Our ascension into higher consciousness means that much must fall away – ways of being, old methods for communicating, and nonfunctional paradigms within relationships.

All of it can tug at your heart and create worry within your mind about your present and future. Perhaps the most devastating loss to cope with, however, is that of a loved one.

Coping with Loss of Loved Ones

Advance Grieving – Grief over loss of a loved one is one of the most challenging experiences you can have. Grief in fact can occur even before a beloved person or pet dies. This is advance grieving, a kind of anticipatory grieving and part of the overall cycle of grief. For your personal spiritual transformation, you will want to honor this stage and work through things as they come up. This advance healing preparation will help you later on, at the moment of passing and well beyond.

Death of Loved Ones – The actual death of a being you love can sometimes be anticipated, but you can never know in advance exactly how you will feel and respond. Even with advance notice, you can feel shock and a kind of disassociation with reality as you process the passing.
While death is as natural as birth – impermanence being the nature of all things – in our modern society there is much fear, denial, and ignorance about death. A time is coming in humanity’s awakening when people will house the consciousness to move through the death process of someone in a present way – having made peace and feeling complete with the relationship.

Oftentimes in my healing practice how people first come to me relates to the passing or anticipated passing of a beloved person or pet. If it’s about anticipated passing, the person wants insights and healing to cope with the heart-wrenching situation. Sometimes they want specific help for the loved one near death, too, helping to ease the pain and prepare for the transition. If it’s after the passing, the person wants to know the loved one is okay and to have communications with him or her on the other side. It is quite comforting for people to learn more about circumstances of the death and to be able to telepathically communicate beyond the veil to better understand the gifts of the relationship. This helps with letting go and is validating.

Anniversary of Passing – It’s common, even years after a loved one has passed, to feel deep sadness on the anniversary of his or her death. This feeling is something to be honored, for you are honoring both the being and your relationship. Also keep this in mind: other side communications with your loved one have no expiration date. Telepathic communication beyond the veil is timeless and easily facilitated years or even decades after passing.

Love from the Other Side

As I wrote on social media this past week, the process of grieving can be quite challenging.

When someone you love passes, it can feel like you have a hole in your heart. Honor how you feel. Know, too, that you never lose them for love connects you heart-to-heart across time and dimensions. Love is the eternal bond. Love is forever.

Break Free at Full Moon

Aquarius full moon

Break Free at Full Moon
-Steps to More Empowerment-
by Selacia

If you have been feeling like you want to break free of the status quo, this could be your week to act on those feelings. With Thursday’s Aquarius Full Moon and some other helpful energy in the air, it could be easier to take some new and bolder steps. In this article I provide suggested actions that could shift you out of neutral and into forward.

For most people, this has not been an easy or simple year. It’s been common to have unexpected delays and confusing moments. So much is going on and many more in-the-background factors influenced progress.

Dream Time Processing

During your dream time and inner work process, you have been processing a vast canvas of energy. Most likely, you are aware of some themes as they reflect issues that have come up for resolution. You have become conscious of those.

Know, however, that one reason you could sometimes feel heavy is that you are also processing interconnected issues – so far outside your awareness that they are not apparent. Some of these relate to past lives, others relate to discordant planetary energies you incarnated to help heal. This additional level is being mentioned here so that you have perspective about why you sometimes feel things so deeply.

Remember: you are a quantum multidimensional being with many lifetimes before this one and a soul destiny involving Earth’s ascension.

Divine Changemaker Role

No one day will be all good or all bad. That’s linear thinking. Energy can shift like a lightning bolt, at any moment, for it is always in motion. Your role as a divine changemaker is to learn how to ride the energy waves, utilizing both positive cycles and challenging cycles for your spiritual growth. Whatever the energy is, your response to it becomes your path.

For this week through the weekend, some nice surprises could be unfolding. Examples: creative juices could be amplified, making connection with others could be easier, and risk taking could be less scary.

Steps to More Empowerment

Benefit from this week’s energy with these simple actions.

FIRST, stay grounded and invite inner wisdom about how to break free of your status quo. Be open to the larger view spirit has. This means being willing to see beyond what you already know about yourself. Spirit may show you suggested changes in areas you don’t suspect.

SECOND, give yourself more personal quiet time than you typically experience. Ideally this is a combination of solo self-reflection and some group meditative experience that can be very powerful during this Aquarius Full Moon cycle.

THIRD, inquire within and ask: “What is the one thing that as I take action to address it now, can be the key catalyst I’ve needed for a more fulfilling life?”

Your biggest breakthroughs can come when you feel the most challenged, yet you apply unwavering dedication and perseverance. The key is being willing to take each step as it is presented, letting go of having to know what the next step will be. With each step know that spirit is always with you.

Words Matter

Hiroshima 8.6.1945 atomic bombing

Words Matter More Now
-What Makes These Moments Unique-
by Selacia

There is an increased sense of urgency being felt across the world now. Most likely you feel it deep in your bones. Humanity’s ways of co-existing are up for perhaps the biggest review yet. And thanks to technology and the 24/7 flow of information, each of us has a front-row seat of this review.

71 Years: Hiroshima and Nagasaki

We are reminded that this week marks 71 years since more than 200,000 people were killed by the US atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At the same time, despite what the world learned from that tragedy and real progress in abolishing nuclear weapons, we hear about individuals and governments continuing to favor the nuclear option.

This is just one key example of the war of ideas taking place across the world. These are not the old fashioned kind of wars our ancestors fought over resources. They are based on ideas and proliferated with highly-charged words that evoke emotion. Continue reading to learn what this means for you personally.

Global Melting Pot of Language and Culture

You live immersed in a global melting pot of language and culture. Regardless of where you call home, technology connects you daily with a rich flow of ideas. These ideas are communicated through words and images that when translated across cultures can have widely different meanings. In addition, behind the words can be motivations that are far from loving. Words can be used to manipulate and control without people suspecting. We have many examples in history of how the masses in a country were lured by charismatic words.

Here’s something else to consider. In these times of cyber warfare, you don’t need to leave your home country to be subject to manipulative messages from foreign governments.

Your Divine Changemaker Role

Part of your role as a divine changemaker is to become more aware of the subtleties involved with the intake of information. Words are more than just words. In the battle of ideas, words can become a powerful force of change.

They can assist with awakening, help to create peace, or inform people of big-picture issues. A simple phrase can be so memorable and impactful that it opens people’s hearts and minds to more enlightened approaches.

A string of words – taken out of context or containing both truths and untruths – can be taken literally by an unsuspecting populace. This is especially true in modern times when so many people get their news online and don’t take the time to fully investigate things.

Words also can numb the masses, ignite fear, turn people against each other, suppress truth, or create dictatorial regimes.

Words can have more impact in modern times, too, simply because of our 24/7 news cycles. Repetition of ideas, including the media spin on facts, can create illusions of truth. These distorted ideas move beyond the media channels and into the mass consciousness and the very fabric of society. This means that even people who take in little or no news can be exposed to distortions of truth.

Idea Manipulation

Ideas you take in can be distorted by the words themselves, the emotional undercurrent, what is left out, and what kind of facts are involved.

The war of ideas is complex to understand. At a core level, however, there are some very simple guidelines you can apply to the intake of information.

5 Tips for Discernment

Here are five things you can do to be more fully informed and discern what you are taking in from the world.

First, set your intention to become more present and focused as you take in messages from the world. That may seem obvious, but in our fast-paced world with constant input, setting this intention really can help. Sound bites digested when you are multitasking, and then acted upon, can lead to regrets later. Just like driving while texting can have dire consequences, taking in messages when you are upset or just not present can leave you with false impressions of reality.

Second, pay closer attention to the tone of the words you are hearing or reading. Do they evoke emotion, and if so, what? Do you sense any incongruity in the words? Do the words fall into a familiar pattern you are seeing elsewhere? Do the facts behind the words check out?

Third, get really grounded, calm, and in your heart – then ask within to know whether what you are hearing or reading seems authentic. Does the person saying it seem to have integrity and a caring character? What do you sense the big-picture motivation is behind the words?

Fourth, considering that words can be divisive, evaluate them on deeper levels. Does the message serve as a distraction from real issues? Is it confusing? Does it seem black and white? Does the message leave you feeling angry and without a solution?

Fifth, expand your sources of information so you aren’t getting everything from one place. Listen to more than one side of things before deciding what to believe and what action to take. Question what you have decided to believe and why you think it’s true.

In summary, it’s helpful to daily come back to the big picture of why you are alive now. You are a divine changemaker, and that role alone sets you apart from the masses not yet awakened. Embrace this role. Embrace and live your own vision for a more loving world. Know that your life, your energy, and your actions matter. Know that you are loved, lovable, and capable of modeling unconditional love in the world.

Navigate August Opportunities

-Stepping Into a New Crossroads-

by Selacia

As the energies in August heat up and intensify, it will be more important than ever to find your center and apply intuitively guided reason. You cannot afford to take things at face value or make quick judgments without researching all the facts. The world is not as it appears and things are changing at lightning speed.

In fact, with so much happening all at once, if you are not present you could miss opportunities and make decisions that you will regret later. Continue reading to learn more about what we face and how you can not only find your calm zone but thrive during this important phase of awakening happening across the world.

Understanding the Path to Now

If you are like most of us, you may already be weary of the relentless pace of intensity and change since 2016 began. You may have moments of simply wanting to stop the world, think of nothing, and do nothing. That’s understandable.

This phase is not easy or simple, regardless of your awareness and substantial preparations to get to this point. As a divine changemaker, however, you did not sign up for easy or simple. You are a quantum and vast being, with countless types of trainings and experiences over the ages to prepare you for your current role.

You are encoded to be here! You are wired at a DNA level to be at the forefront of things, even when the world gets scary or crazy or just plain stupid. Your role is to courageously face what is in front of you and respond in a heart-centered way. Your role is to model for others how the new human faces uncertainty and relentless change. You do that by drawing upon what you already know and discovering additional tools specifically tailored to these unique moments.

One thing that gives you strength is remembering that this is not your first time here. If you had a resume with all that you as a soul had experienced and mastered, you would be in awe!

Most likely you were alive during other key flash points humanity experienced during ancient times. Places and civilizations involved included:  Egypt, Turkey, the Holy Land, Greece, the Inca, the Maya, Tibet, India, China, Atlantis, and Lemuria.

What I’m seeing now in my work with people is a huge momentum of remembering – men and women connecting with a knowing of having been on Earth during some of the earlier great civilizations. Sometimes how they begin to remember is through their children, for the kids being born now have fewer veils on their intuitive gifts. A six-year-old child may all of a sudden say: “Remember mommy when we went to that place in Turkey, that place they are showing on TV?”

Stepping Into a New Crossroads

Keeping this long history in mind, it can be easier to face new rounds of change and the countless unknowable factors of these moments.

The August energies are setting the stage for what will be a series of new crossroads humanity must move through between now and end-year. At each point along the way, we are being tested. When we become still and listen, we are shown by our intuitive guidance just how important this time is. We are reminded that there is a higher view to each and every piece of nonsense unfolding. We are nudged by spirit to go deeper and look for truth at a higher level.

As you may remember, my “2016 Predictions” article was about themes of truth and justice taking center stage. Those themes of course won’t disappear after 2016, but this year is the time when these crucial issues are getting a huge cosmic spotlight. That spotlight is essential, as uncomfortable as it is, for a radical revolution of consciousness to be seeded and begin to unfold.

You are an essential part of this revolution!

Navigating August Cycles

For optimal success this month, become aware of key energy dates and learn more about how you personally are impacted by the ups-and-downs of planetary cycles. As an example, even an intense moon cycle stirring strong emotions can be a time of significant breakthroughs. You may meet an important person or see the culmination of efforts you first initiated months earlier.

To remain stable and connected to your inner voice it’s helpful to get and stay aware of energies impacting the world. We are energetic beings, after all, being impacted by flows of energy that affect humanity in a universal way. Your success comes from being able to sense this larger dynamic when you are going about your personal life, doing business, and making plans.

A devastation or crisis in one place can send energetic ripples across the world. Even those unaware of these energies can feel tension or sadness. That’s because we’re now connected 24/7 through technology and we also share humanity’s mass consciousness.

Take regular time-outs with meditation and self-care so that you can stay resourced. You will need both your inner and outer strength for the mega transitions unfolding over the next two months.

August Moon Watch

August 2 – Leo New Moon: This is a time to refocus your self-care and listen to your heart on a deeper level than before. Most likely, there is something your heart has been trying to tell you for a while now. As you listen more deeply, you may just find the insights needed to break through a key roadblock. You can start today with some powerful New Moon intentions. Make a list of five specific things, say them out loud to yourself, then put the list next to where you sleep.

August 18 – Aquarius Full Moon: During this cycle, extending into the weekend, you may find yourself seeking to enlarge your circle of like-minded people. After all, you are not meant to travel your path alone! Other potentials include getting in touch with the final piece of a puzzle that you haven’t been able to resolve, perhaps all of your life or even lifetimes. It may involve a DNA-level pattern inherited from your ancestors, too. Know that whatever is appearing is key to your forward progression and that resolving it now within the DNA can make a huge difference in your life.

Mercury Retrograde – August 30

Just before August ends we have a three week Mercury Retrograde starting on the 30th.  Watch for time warps beyond the norm. Pay extra attention to details and apply discriminating wisdom to what you take in from the world. Some things that may have seemed completed may reappear for another review. It’s an excellent time to review your goals, revisit self-care, and investigate adjustments you can make in how you position yourself in the world.

With all of these energies in the mix, do your best in August to be present and awake to yourself and the world. You are not here as a bystander. Give yourself permission to look deeply at things. Know that it’s okay to make “mistakes” as you do what no one has done before. Believe in yourself and in your divine changemaker role. Trust as you walk your path that you are being guided by something much larger than you. Know that you are loved, no matter what happens.

July Madness Tips

July Madness Tips
Full Moon Week Higher View
by Selacia

The week of a Full Moon is when you want to have your discernment antenna turned on “high alert.” Things tend to get amplified and regular life dramas tend to be expanded upon. Also, the craziness of the world, amplified beyond the usual, is impacting people on a personal level, adding to the intensity people are feeling. These amplifications are not really that unusual, but these are unusual times. Old norms often have little application during these moments.

Full Moon in Capricorn

The Full Moon peaks July 19 as it sits in Capricorn. This particular cycle is stirring issues of mastering this physical reality. It is also catalyzing people to self-reflect on things like life foundation, balance, and expanding views on limitations. Another key thing about this cycle is that its impact is likely to be felt for more days than usual, in part because of how connected we all are and types of universal themes surfacing within the collective.

As I’ve been writing about on social media, the pace and extent of dramas is likely to accelerate even more now as we step into Tuesday’s Full Moon energy and a host of high-profile debates involving politics, culture, injustices, and how we live on this small planet. I’ve been suggesting that we walk gently and with love. Easier said than done, of course. Read on to find out what else each of us can do to navigate these energies.

Fluctuations: Focus, Energy, Time

One feature of this week is the potential for wide fluctuations. For example, between now and Thursday you may find yourself needing to pay extra attention and make extra effort to complete tasks. It may feel like time disappeared when you need to get things done. Your focus may dart all over the place. Don’t take this personally – this is much more than you. Everyone is affected by the planetary dance of challenges along with the Full Moon. Breathe.

Self-Monitor Communications

Communications are amplified now. Be an example of heart-centered communications, doing your best to self-monitor words when you are emotional or just very passionate about something.

There’s lots of fiery energy in the air. Count to 10 before you respond to upsetting or unsettling events. Loved ones may act out of character, strangers may do strange things. Do your best to remain the calm voice of reason within your circles.

Feel you reached a breaking point with someone and strong words must be said no matter what? Current energies could be stirring some very passionate feelings, so factor that in before you make your declarations. Invite your wise self to guide you with optimal words, timings, and delivery. Sometimes journaling about your feelings or speaking them in the air when you are alone helps take the edge off – then you can say things in a more loving way.

Bigger Picture Positives

One way to find your calm zone more quickly now is to remember as unusual things are unfolding quickly that there is a larger picture to the world’s remake. Much is happening behind the scenes and humanity’s ascension is speeding up exponentially!

Yes, the drama you are seeing played out in the news is crazy and you don’t want to subject yourself to repeated replays of sound bites. However, avoid the temptation to numb the senses or purposefully tune out as we sit in some of the most challenging moments to be alive. Many things just won’t make sense. Other things you may simply wish you didn’t know about, they are so weird or horrible. Still, your wise self knows you must stay conscious and aware in order to benefit from the gifts of these times and to help others.

Be an example of the multidimensional self you are too. This means avoid black-and-white thinking and responses to dramas being played out on the world stage. As the tempo of weirdness is turned up this week, stay in your center so that you as a being can benefit. You are not here to simply watch a show or comment on what is being said. You are alive now in these particular moments to be an integral part of the planet’s awakening.

As a reminder, the outer world is not random but a reflection of the inner state of humanity. Use each round of craziness and whatever personal response you have to go within and discover what from any lifetime is being triggered so you can work on and clear this at a DNA level. Each time you address an issue in your DNA, you help your own awakening and assist in a healing of the collective. All of us carry old dysfunctional patterns from humanity’s long past. Each time we personally clear something that’s also in the collective, we add to the momentum of humanity’s ascension.

Friday – Weekend Good News

On Friday we have some good news! The Sun then moves into the sign of Leo for the coming month, and it can feel like the sun came out on a dark day – literally. Self-confidence may get a boost, and you may have more energy and stamina to get things done. This is a fortuitous time, therefore, to allow yourself and your gifts to shine and to use your creativity to break through what seemed impenetrable before!

On the weekend – even with the backdrop of continuing outer world combative vibes – we have some helpful cosmic energy supportive of teamwork, cooperation, partnerships, heart openings, and creative approaches. Use this foresight to enhance your life potentials and joy.

Spirit is always with you, helping you to make sense of your Earthly experience. Tune into this help regularly so that you can soar above the chaos and find comfort when nothing makes sense.
