-Connecting with Your Spiritual Heart-
The 10/19 New Moon comes with an opportunity to make a big leap forward. Now is a perfect time to energetically prepare for this opening. Continue reading to understand your potentials at this juncture, and where to place your focus for optimal success.
We are at a crossroads involving how we relate to one another and the Earth. That crossroads is coming more into focus at the Libra New Moon. Libra is associated with balance, and certainly we have a lot out of balance at the moment.
Since the planet Uranus is involved with this New Moon, we’re looking at electric and radical evolutionary change. It’s as though the energies are arriving like a lightning rod – pushing us individually and collectively to reconsider our very old learned patterns involving power and love. Up for close examination is the dysfunction in relationships, as well as what we want from them.
This includes relationships with people, and also with the divine. Over the ages, humanity learned that the divine was somehow distant from the average person – even punitive. In “Earth’s Pivotal Years,” I give some of the history of how we learned to feel separate from the divine. The result of that fundamental lie is mirrored in all other relationships that we have.
The juxtaposition of energies at this New Moon can help us to look more directly and more deeply at ourselves in relationship with others. As we do this, we have an amazing opportunity to transcend outmoded views and connect with our unlimited quantum nature. To the extent we can do this during the New Moon window of time now through 10/22, we connect more deeply with our spiritual heart.
Antidote of Spiritual Heart
The spiritual heart is the high or enlightened heart. It lies at the core of your being, just waiting to be tapped. When you connect with it, you have a divine antidote for relationship troubles of all kinds.
In fact, the spiritual heart is the antidote to the world’s current crisis of fear, division, perpetual war, and manipulations of all kinds. Those energies cannot co-exist in the presence of the spiritual heart – embodied, accessed, and expressed by humanity as a whole.
Below are some tips to help you prepare for this New Moon opportunity.
3 Tips to Prepare for New Moon
FIRST, bring the theme of relationships into your meditations and inner work. Invite a knowing of key dysfunctional dynamics that block harmony with others. A good question to ask internally as you hone in on relationships: “What keeps me from being fully open and authentic with others?”
SECOND, consider a specific relationship which is like a barometer of your wholeness and ability to relate in an enlightened way with others. If you don’t immediately get a specific example, invite a knowing of a dysfunctional pattern that you tend to repeat in many kinds of relationships.
THIRD, invite a knowing of the roots of your disconnection from the divine, your own divine power, and the wise voice of your inner wisdom. Consider asking: “What’s an example of an earlier lifetime when I learned that I was separate from the divine – taught to fear and to expect punishment for wrongdoing?”
What’s most important about these preparations is your presence and intent as you explore and ask the questions. It’s not necessary to receive answers in a tangible way. The very process of inquiry – asking specific questions like those above – sets in motion a response. Trust this.
Know that a powerful alchemy can occur over this next week, helping you to identify what’s out of balance in your relationships. Pay attention to seemingly random insights that come to you as you are focusing on something else. You may receive a word, for example, like distrust or boundaries.
In some cases you may intuit that a dysfunctional relationship issue with your partner has ancestral roots, and is something within your DNA akashic records to be cleared. Having this information is a key step forward.
Remember that spirit is always with you, lovingly and gently nudging you to address blocks in the way of your enlightenment.
