Without relationships, you don’t exist.
You will have to stretch beyond all that you see, look past the illusions, and make your best choices.
So when the Divine guided me to write about relationships. I said out Loud, “OH GOD Please, relationships. Really?” “I’m over relationships!” The Divine laughs and says, “It’s time for you to share the knowledge of the Love, Wisdom and Power you have been taught over the last 56 years about relationships.” I have had more than my share of “relationships”, family, spouses, lovers, friends, cults, plants, animals, spirit and of course my relationship with God. Learning to love myself was the hardest thing I have done and the most rewarding. If you can’t love and appreciate yourself then you CAN’T love and appreciate anyone or anything else. If you want to learn how to practice self-love contact me for your consultation. People tend to think about relationships only as their partner or lover when in fact we have relationships with everything.
When I trained in Fiji to become a Oneness Blessing giver, One of the most profound teachings for me was: Suffering is a perception of the facts. Really? What does that mean? Exactly what it says. To SUFFER: is to experience something unpleasant, to become worse because of being badly affected by something. PERCEPTION: is the way you think about or understand someone or something, the way YOU notice or understand something using one of your senses. FACT: is something that truly exists or happens: something that has actual existence.
So you experience something bad because of the way you feel about it. You suffer then, WHAT!… So the way I feel about something is what causes me to suffer? YES! So now I have to be responsible for how I feel! Imagine that!
The quality of your life as far as peace, happiness and security mostly have to do with the quality of your relationships. If you have done something that is counter survival in any one of your primary relationships it will weigh on you either consciously or unconsciously. Being out of align with one will cause you to be out of align with all over time. Like if you are not taking care of your physical body then how can you be active in any of your other relationships, or if you are stealing from the group you are in it will eventually catch up with you and cause all of your primary relationships to suffer. On the other side if you are living the 13 living ethics from the previous newsletter (article here) you will generate a lot of love and happiness in your relationships. You can feel all of this.
Healing a relationship can sometimes be hard. Usually because you do not want to admit you are wrong or you’re afraid to work through the situation.
The simplest way to heal a relationship is to be truthful with yourself and get in touch with the pain. Allow yourself to fully experience it. It may be a very uncomfortable thing to do. But if you do you will see the results. In Oneness we call this "the art of experiencing the pain" Like starting to exercise it hurts like hell at first but moving through the pain you start to see the results of a stronger body. Addicts understand this as going through withdrawal. When you come out of the other side life can be amazing!
The other way is the art of listening. If you listen to your body, your spouse/family, your group, species, life forms, the universe, your spirit and your creator. They will all tell you what is out of alignment, what you are doing that is counter survival and what to do to correct it.
One of the most important things to remember is that YOU are the Spirit, Soul, The animator in YOUR life! The mind only gradually gathers and acquires the recordings of your thoughts, all your decisions, observations, perceptions and conclusions from your very beginning in time. Once you can truly realize that you are spirit you can create and heal all things.
The only way a relationship between you and anything can be healed and established is to have an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE. Only then will fulfillment come in life.
When you have an attitude of gratitude with innocence, mother nature brings all the wealth, health and happiness to you. It is the highest way of living and the biggest truth, THE HIGHEST TRUTH.
Gratitude is a prayer and praise put together, because God is in all. Prayer is much more than asking for things or reciting a formula. Prayer is a two way communication with your Divine it’s a living exchange. The purpose is to be in gratitude forever for everything. Live with consciousness. You will be flooded with prosperity and an abundance of every good thing. You pray when you are in difficulty. Pray when you are not in difficulty! That is the attitude of gratitude.
Love and relationships has been one of the trademarks for 2017.
Relationships have been in focus thanks to Jupiter opposite Uranus on the relationship Aries / Libra axis. We also had Venus, the planet of love and relationships, retrograde in March and April. The important Venus cycle brought to the surface all unfinished business related to relationships of all kinds.
The basic urge is to survive. This is true about all life forms.
Let's look at Man
He/She consists of a body as a physical composition or substance. Whether its living or dead. It is not the being itself.The mind which consists essentially of pictures. The mind is not the brain. The brain is part of the body composition.Then there is the Spirit. The spirit is not a thing. It is the creator of things. The animator.
The spirit is the most important. Without the spirit, there would be no animation in the body. Without the body and mind there is still animation and life in the spirit.
Let's look at our relationships
- The first aspect is the Self
It's about security and survival. It includes your body and your mind. It does not include other people. It's your individuality expressed fully. It's the foundation, survival, security, habit and self-acceptance. It's the urge to survive as you the body.
- Second: Creativity – Family
To feel to desire to create. This includes family and any family activity. It also includes sex. Making things for the future.
- Third: Action and balance – Groups
Will power, Personal power and commitment. This is the urge to survive as a group. It tends to take on a life or existence of its own. This could include your friends, your co-workers, your alumni club or your race. It doesn't matter how big the group is. The group itself will seek to survive.
- Fourth: Is about Love and Compassion
You go from "Me to We" This aspect is your relationship with your own species. Your urge to survive through mankind. All men and women seek to survive as men and women and for men and women. There is an awakening to spiritual awareness, forgiveness and service.
- Fifth: Has to do with all life forms and your projective power of the word.
Hearing and speaking the truth. The teacher. It's all life forms. Plants, animals and every living thing. Even rocks have life in them.
- Sixth: Is our Physical Universe
It has to do with the union of opposites; understanding one's purpose. Think of the action of the Sun and the moon. Two opposites working together for the greater good. What is your relationship with the universe?
- Seventh: This is your Spirit
It's your urge to survive as your spiritual self. Life itself. Remember I said the spirit is the creator the animator. Your beingness your ability to create. This is separate from the physical universe. It is the source of life itself. You have the ability to destroy or pretend to be destroyed. This is transcendence. The seat of the soul.
- Eighth: Your relationship with God or your creator the source energy
Radiance. This is the Oneness of ALL. Can be seen as your Aura.
It's not surprising that pain and suffering are such a common feature of life. The more we desire to exist the more we will experience the burning intensity of pleasure and pain that contact brings. Pleasure and pain are those two great polar opposites between which we perpetually oscillate, that is until we learn how to walk between them along the path of light. This is the noble middle path of the Buddha.
The month of July highlighted the decisions that are to become integral to your new direction.
This month's pace is set with the first aspect of Uranus turning retrograde on August 2nd, and the changes begin. The powerful solar eclipse at 29 Leo also marks the point Mercury retrogrades to before turning direct on September 5th. The events of August are powerful, intense and require we get with the program and our new journey.Know that YOU are making DECISIONS for YOUR next nine-year cycle.
Jupiter squares Pluto on the 4th of August calling for fairness, and asking us to stick to our values, and in the same time try to fit them in the existing structures. The Jupiter Pluto cycles activate and push forward generational themes. In essence, Jupiter / Pluto square speaks of what Darwin called "survival of the fittest". The fittest will not only survive, but will also thrive in a Jupiter / Pluto environment.
The Moon Eclipse is on the 7th of August in Aquarius, inviting us to embrace and honor our uniqueness.
The solar eclipse will take place the 21st of August in Leo. It will be an extremely powerful one as it occurs at 29° Leo in close conjunction with the fixed star Regulus. This Sun eclipse will be visible across all the United States. Something is going to happen in the world (US especially in focus) around this date, so mark your calendars: 21st of August. This is the 1st eclipse visible in the US since 1979!
THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHAT YOU DO ARE MAGNIFIED BY THE INCREASED SOUL ENERGY.
