Sad dog in a Christmas hat

Are your companions feeling the current energies like this poor dog??

December 8, 2012

It has to be a cosmic joke. Christmas is usually an emotionally frayed enough time without Mercury in retrograde, but we’ve had three weeks of it! Mercury goes forward on December 13. Hooray!

When Mercury goes, retrograde it is a good time to go within.  And with the energies of the moment being particularly touchy, if you can go within I would highly advise it. Eat lunch alone! Out in nature. It’s a good time to duck and hide. Hibernate even. Because this Mercury Retrograde is heightened by the December 10th Lunar Eclipse, the 12/12/11 Gateway, and solar flares, it might makes people very stressed if they don’t understand what is going on.

Here at home, we put our heads down and work and tend animals, and it is like we are in our own world. But the number of cries for help are coming in good and fast, so I know people are struggling with this, this time.

Don’t worry. We’ll have a new gateway soon. But the essence of it is that we have to do our personal work, and anything that you find up for healing and release right now, tend to it! If you are triggered by something – it’s an active issue!

For me, I think the word “delegation” is coming up as I, like so many others, are seeing the insanity of our lives – doing, doing, doing – when all our souls want to do is just be.

What can I shed? What can I let go of? Where does my heart lie? What is old past life stuff and what is really my heart’s desire this time around?

The process of simplifying, of de-cluttering and letting go the old in favour of something more “you” is really intense right now. So go with the flow. What changes can you really make? What is your heart and soul really yearning for? And have you found those things that bring you peace, contentment, excitement and happiness?

Imagine a world full of contented people, all doing the things that make them happy? Bliss. This is our future, if we can start today, using the extra fuel power of some pretty intense astrology.

Who is out there complaining? Don’t! Move, shift and float upwards. Complaining holds you anchored in the third dimension, which you created with your complaints!!

The 12 12 11 Gateway is another download of light (have you been feeling those lately?) and some people might find it puts you in a state of giggly silliness, euphoria, relaxation, contentment – and others might find it challenging. The former people might want to make sure they ground. The world might not be looking at this gateway as intensely as 11/11/11 – but remember how that was for you, and take the time to say “thank you”. Watch for signs from nature and Spirit and actively focus on inner peace and quiet (or lively) joy.

My 11/11/11 gateway was sweet. I realised I was manifesting “be-ing”. I felt more relaxed than I have all year – despite work pressure. I took the day off to do ceremony and the Divine Love Healing Circle. I felt giddy with elation, despite grounding techniques, and I heard many lightworking friends also found dreams manifesting with ease: love, new homes, movement. I had a whole weekend off to be me.

I enjoyed simple things like house work singing to Carol King, vegan cooking for teens and listening to live folk music at Music at the Creek, the Majors Creek folk festival. I impulsively bought a secondhand banjo and now I’m having banjo lessons!

Later I had a huge “a-ha” in a bright technicolour life review while standing in the middle of the kitchen, seeing how being too busy was actually extremely unkind to my s-elf. Balance!

The clarity with which realisations came to me was stunning and I made sure I wrote them down. They weren’t just words anymore. I could See  how wrong the old 3-D groove was.

The process of peeling away the dead, asleep suits has accelerated, as the new alive, intuitive, heart-centered people emerge from the dross like phoenixes. Nurturing oneself and others during this time is very very important. Even the animals are sooky. My guidance was, and is, to rest, rest, rest. That’s kind of challenging at this time of year – but do what you can. I was also told that things would move forward again after 12/12/11.

Make sure you use the full opportunity of this time.  Do ceremony, drink in the sun’s rays, open yourself to change, allow yourself to become more sensitive, compassionate, gentle and refined.  And that’s energetic refinement, not, you know, tea in pretty cups.  (Although why not?)

The more awake people are, the more they see the truth of the illusion and traps we’ve fallen into. When you energetically rise higher and higher,  and lighter and lighter, it’s more of a challenge to consider causing anyone harm, least of all innocent animals.  And animal sensitives just become physically unable to tolerate harm of any kind to their animal brothers and sisters.

You see the world differently – what it could be, not what it is. This is why I keep calling for change, and urge my students not to get too caught up in what they see, but to work on themselves so they can see differently. The more people who see the world from the perspective of eagle, for example, the more we will see real change –a world where finally the urgency of compassionate action is a thing of the past because all beings are cared for with love and kindness.

So I am enjoying this process of peeling the old dead suit away with the last (I hope) of any stuff I’m carrying around, and going with my heart intuition about how to live in a new way. A new fun, light-hearted way, even as I continue my heavier work as an animal advocate.

Spirit also told me that my work had only just begun, and then proceeded to send miserable, over crowded, cattle, sheep and logging trucks to cross my path. Just to remind me of the horrors which still exist for the animals and nature. *Sigh.*

It makes me feel so full of gratitude to everyone embracing a Loving Diet (I no longer want to use the term “cruelty free”. That puts the focus on the wrong thing.) Thank you! What we are doing to animals has to stop and this is one big big area of change for 2012. I think it will happen! So instead of focusing on the horrors, I focus on social change.  A Loving Diet that becomes the norm!  And just by embracing this kind of eating, chemically effects people to become more peaceful, joyous, healthy and connected to animals and nature.   High frequency is contagious. (Remember, high frequency people can’t consider harming others.)

There is something in the eating of flesh that keeps people stuck in an old groove of density.  And they realise it as soon as they stop!  It’s okay to be sensitive!

Andrew and I were talking about this just the other day, and as he mentioned, it wasn’t so long ago that it was considered reasonable that black people could be shot by white people, and their children taken away (like we do to the animals.)

Now that we see the awful error of that social more, we are turning our attention to how badly we treat animals. This is a process of awakening, of evolution, of energetic refinement. And so it goes. I have long said that we will look back at this time as brutish and barbaric – and really, the more refined your energies become, the more clear it really is. So today is the enlightenment revolution!

A lot of people are angry at people who are causing suffering to animals through their diet choices, for example. But what we have to realise is that it is a process of evolution. The people stuck in the old ways need to be inspired to flower and grow.  There is no need to be angry.  Please be patient with friends and relatives .  Allow them their process.   Invite them to scrummy vegan dinners.   Invite them to try a Meat free Monday recipe.  For some this is strange eating.  It isn’t meat and three veg.  Over thirty years ago, my friends would rock up to dinner at our place, having stuffed themselves on KFC because they thought I would be serving lettuce leaves.  Hmn.  It is a process of education that Loving meals are yummy, healthy and they make you feel good.

What we have to realise is that peeling away is happening for everyone and everything. Just because we have always used animals certainly doesn’t make it right. And those who react, because they are still clinging to the idea that they don’t want to give up “meat”, have to ask themselves why? Is this a trigger which needs healing and release?  Be adventurous and ask yourself “why not?”

The trend to a Loving Diet is skyrocketing as people become more and more compassionate. We can no longer turn away from the truth of our food industries and the crazy things people do for greed. Meat consumption has become not only unhealthy, but also unholy.

There are so many wonderful benefits of a Loving Diet, including becoming more loving! And more healthy. And at a soul level, more at peace. Let’s face it, few people want to cause suffering. Our society is just conditioned to think it is okay, and it is really painful to realise it isn’t.

And it isn’t.

We have to create new paths and trails, to create a new world of peace for all species. This is my work now – to inspire others to see the possibilities of a different world.

While some people are feeling as though the light at the tunnel is glowing brightly, others are still squinting to see it.

There are reports of animals behaving oddly or getting sick quickly, people under stress and reacting badly , and life feeling as if one just lost the reins of a galloping horse. Ascension symptoms are still things like clearing flus, fatigue, inability to sleep, interrupted sleep patterns, and brain fog. If this is you, lay low – go ground in nature, hug a tree, meditate with your back against one (and don’t forget to leave a gift of rolled oats for energetic exchange).

As 5-D is a karma-free zone, it makes sense that anything left unhealed is up for healing and release. So handle it and be aware of what is triggering you. Don’t just go on the attack. Understand that you are triggered and therefore need to look at something which has come up for healing.

This is a time of change and we have to have change. So shine a light on your own shadow and duck when others reveal theirs! Don’t bother engaging in a battle of tempers.

Keep breathing through the crunchy times and feelings. We’ve had a taste of freedom, and there is more coming.

The trees did tell me it had been harder than anyone thought for humans to shed their density. Ouch!

And don’t forget, we are in a new new time. Never before have we ascended on mass with our bodies. So think about the enormity of this kind of change. We are all pioneers.

Also, be mindful of your thoughts and do what you can to stay positive and buoyant. (Self-nurture is the key here – very important.) Thoughts are manifesting more quickly – even the bad ones. This can get lots of people into trouble. However it is also the sign of the age of grace – so look at your world with an eye to knowing you created it.

And you can change it!

We’re in a time of beginnings, so this is a good time to begin new projects and dream in the kind of life and behaviours that fit a new era society. One of gentleness, respect, compassion and kindness to all species.
