Happy Earth Week! As we know, every day is a day to be grateful for Mother Earth. This week is an opportunity to integrate the true understanding of appreciation for the planet we live, breathe, eat, and resource from in order to both live and thrive. It is the 17th week of the year, and the archetype of "The Star" pays a visit to remind us what is important in life and what to put our Love, Faith and Hope into. What is the foundation of living a healthy and happy life? It is learning, growing, and communing with one's soul and one's surroundings. We are nature, and we are one with our surroundings. How we live with and treat other people, other species, the air, the water, the soil, and all of the natural world is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. In order to transcend the lower frequencies in our reality, we have to rise above the abuse, neglect, and fear that we have been trained to accept from ourselves and from others. The great awakening is birthed out of awareness and consciousness of who we are in the reality we exist in. We sometimes kick and scream, fighting our way away from seeing who we really are. The moment we accept ourselves for our mistakes, weaknesses, or unconscious behaviors, as well as for our strengths, talents, and uniqueness, we start to open our hearts to understanding all of the imperfections in the physical world outside of us. The deeper wisdom reveals that purity is related to our intentions and motivation for everything we think, feel, say, do, and experience in our lives. What is the motivating factor that drives the life mission? Is it money? Success? Fame? Beauty? Love? The purity of our intentions has birthed the reality we currently live in. What do we see as a driving force in society today? That is where our level of consciousness dwells.
"The Star" depicts our connection to both the collective, subconscious mind, and the individual, conscious mind. We are tapped into each other's thoughts and feelings, and we have a choice to process deep realizations from the learning experiences that life presents to us personally. With humility, deep understandings transform us into who we become. Much like all of the stars in the sky, we are able to illuminate ourselves during our darkest times in life. Each star reflects and opportunity to grow and light the path for ourselves and others. The goal is to remain patient as the process toward our destiny becomes revealed. Saturn is the planetary influence guiding The Star. The expansion of consciousness is earned over time. We are challenged to have discipline and continue to choose Love in the most challenging situations. It is not the easiest path, but it is so rewarding and filled with Light. With faith, hope, determination, discipline, and courage, all things are possible.
Situations manifest in our lives, and our soul's essence speaks to us through the natural world, inner feelings, interactions, and cosmic experiences. These are all called "the whisper". When the Universe whispers into the heart, listening leads to destiny, ignoring leads to fate. In the end, we will learn the lesson. We get to choose how that lesson enters our lives - gently or loudly. Karma is action-reaction, going from seed to fruit, or the beginning reflecting the ending of everything we do. What is the intention behind our actions. Even the most conscious of souls are regularly tested with this. We may begin a project with good intentions, and then find ourselves in a situation that no longer resonates. Intentions are best kept when they are practiced daily. Start the day with gratitude, reverence, and the power of the breath. After meditation, take a moment of stillness to see your daily intentions unfolding. We like to anoint with Frankincense, Opoponax, or Laurel Leaf to awaken the higher faculties of our consciousness to guide our hearts toward the best and highest good for all. Each of us intending Love on a daily basis leads to a world-wide wave of Light. It is a beautiful reminder of who we really are underneath this body suit, and our true purpose of existing. We are born to Love, spread Love, teach Love, feel Love, share Love, and stand up for Love. When Love is a stronger desire than material abundance, we will experience healing and connection to what is eternal and not temporary. Allow The Star to illuminate your heart and mind toward the power of Love.
