Lunar New Year

Welcome in the Lunar New Year: Say Hello to the Dragon and Goodbye to the Year of the Rabbit ~

The Lunar New Year is a time of significant transition. In the Chinese Zodiac, each Lunar year has its own animal personality, yin/ yang polarity and elemental qualities that the ancients used to assist them as they navigated life. There are twelve signs in the Zodiac Cycle which repeats every twelve years.

The Year of the Yang Wood Dragon has officially started on February 10th, 2024.

Year of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2032…

Complimentary Signs: Monkey and Rat. Secret Friend: Rooster. Against Dog.

Positive Qualities: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous.
Challenging Qualities: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of persistence. Unrealistic.

The Dragon’s Feng Shui Mandala below can give you a sense of what the archetype of the Dragon is about and how it may influence you. If you’re interested, gently contemplate its center and relax. When you’re ready, ask yourself these questions and journal the answers that come:

“What is the most important thing I can focus my energy and effort on during the Year of the Dragon?”

“What is the direction? Why is that important?
How can I utilize the energy of the Dragon to my best advantage?
Is there something I’m wasting time on? Something I’m not aware of?
If so, can I tell what they are and what would be the best thing to do?”

Allow your intuition to come forward and bring guidance from your innermost Self. 

This past lunar year, the Animal has been the Yin Water Rabbit.

Rabbit

The beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are: Docile. Peaceful. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious and Considerate. Her fertility and connection with Family, Community and Prosperity is legendary.

Her more challenging qualities are: Irresolute. Skittish. Stubborn. Timid. Escapist and tending to Procrastination.

Rabbit is considered by many to be a trickster, however, if you were able to make friends with her, she may have taught you some very important lessons about being aware of your environment and sensing when something’s amiss. If you ask her nicely on the way out, she may make some last minute recommendations: What did you learn from Rabbit? Is there something else to learn? Does Rabbit sense any danger moving into the Year of the Dragon? If so, is it near or far? Is there a place or activity that that would be better to avoid? What is her advice?

As you consider how Rabbit’s energy has affected you personally, ask:

“Is there anything that I need to do or let go of? How can I make sure the Rabbit energy exits completely?” 

 

Feng Shui and Grounding in The New Lunar Year

As you can imagine, the Lunar New Year is an excellent time to prepare for new plans and personal growth for the future using the Art of Feng Shui. The seeds that are planted now are very close to being activated in the Spring.

 

Use this Soul Prayer Chart with your imagination to uproot any destructive tendencies or karmic seeds that you would rather not activate and grow in this New Lunar Year:

“I uproot any harmful karmic seeds, tendencies or “stakes” that may still be planted in the energy of the past year.”

You may want to be specific about some Rabbit characteristics that may have come up in you last year. For example, were you overly timid? Skittish? Stubborn? Did you procrastinate or go down too many rabbit holes? This is a great opportunity tend your own garden before those seeds sprout again!

“I pull myself out of any ‘rabbit holes’ that I am still stuck in.”

 

Use this symbol with positive affirmations to dissolve destructive blueprints of past extreme or indulgent behaviors. For example:

“I surrender destructive blueprints of wishful thinking, misconceptions and no win situations that sabotage my personal growth and happiness.”

“I send them to the Light. My Future is bright and clear.”

Always remember to release pain or harmful energies into the Light!

 

Before you can ground effectively in the Lunar New Year, are there any superstitions or emotional fantasies that you would like to move beyond and release to the Light?

“I let go of external, artificial expectations about how I should be.”

Moon - Lunar New Year

Is there anything that’s pulling you out of sync with your natural cycles or the cycles of the Moon? Are you willing and able to let them go? If so, release them to the Light as well.

“I am in sync with the Cycles of Nature and the Moon.”

“I honor and respect my own, personal cycles.”

 

Confirm that you’re using the generative life force of the Air Element to facilitate your transition out of the old and into the new:

“I close old energy channels that drain or depress me.”

“I choose to use generative life force to energize my path forward into the Lunar New Year.”

“I connect with life affirming directions and channels of communication.”

Note: This symbol can help you whenever you feel stuck, exhausted or confused.

 

There may be some conflicts, shock or energy fixations leftover from the past year that block your ability to perceive things clearly. If that’s the case, you’re not alone! Use Condor Medicine to help you soften and relax them.

“I relax and allow any frozen or tense thoughts to melt away.”

Breathe deeply and imagine the lines going in towards the center are going loose and limp like cooked spaghetti noodles until the tension releases.

There may be more than one. Do yourself a favor by taking the time now to resolve them so that you don’t carry them into the new year.

 

Bring your senses into balance so that you can be more present for the transition and see things as they are.

“How am I perceiving this? Am I accessing chaos, destruction or balance?”

If you’re accessing chaos, consciously turn the volume of your senses down so you can regain balance. If what you’re accessing seems dead or hopeless, turn the volume up to a more balanced perception of how things really are.

“I perceive my situation clearly.”

 

Respectfully close the door on the Year of the Rabbit so that you can open the door for what’s in the next Lunar New Year.

 

Now that one door has closed completely, another can open properly. Prepare yourself by activating and aligning with the creative energy and Fire of your Soul!

 

Welcoming the Year of the Yang Wood Dragon – February 10th, 2024.

As mentioned before, the beneficial qualities of the Dragon are said to be: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous. His popularity is based on a reputation for attracting good luck and prosperity.

However, his darker, more arrogant characteristics are: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of Persistence and Unrealistic.

A Dragon personality can be generous to a fault, intelligent to the point of intolerance and so ambitiously confident that they can move forward too fast and forcefully, causing destruction for those around them. At best, this tendency seems rude and at worst, forcing and pushing things through often causes nasty karmic backlashes, especially in the New Paradigm.

The Dragon archetype can guard very unrealistic ideals that it will then hold against itself. It’s very sensitive to pain and will unexpectedly lash out vigorously when hurt or under attack. Respect is an important virtue. Establishing common sense and stable limitations will help restrain his more extreme qualities.

Yes. The male, vital Dragon is a very different energy to operate under in contrast to his gentle predecessor, the feminine rabbit!

With these generalities in mind, what do you think you will need to do differently to work with this energy?

What is the message from this Archetypal Animal?

Are there any warnings? Opportunities?

Is there something specific you could ask about that would be beneficial?

What would you need to do to make friends with him?

 

As you contemplate the answers you’ve gotten through your intuition, reinforce your ability to communicate and manifest with the generative energy of the New Paradigm and communicate what’s most important for you to remember.

 

Now that you’ve gained this new perspective and awareness about the Lunar New Year, put your feet firmly on the ground and place your palms on the inside of your knees. Let the symbol help you spin out discordant energies so you can get grounded and bring clarity into the New Year.

“I am grounding with an awareness of the new energies.” 

“I ground in the New Paradigm in accordance with my highest good.”

Congratulations! You may want to get up and move around to integrate this new information and the insights that you’ve opened up to.

Resources for Healing Hate

Release the Binding Energy of Hate

Many people are having a difficult time healing hate and keeping their hearts open to hope and peaceful possibilities.

Healing Hate through Heart OpeningHealing hate is a big topic of concern, so let’s talk about the energy of hate and how it affects our energetic system.

I learned early on in my intuitive practice that hate is a binding energy. What I mean by that is when you “hate” something, your thoughts, your mindset and your energy gets very hard and constricted – not to mention your heart.

The same goes for anger, however, anger is more of an immediate reaction – it usually comes up to let you know that something is off – something is wrong that needs your attention right away. Anger is your friend when it’s telling you that there’s some aspect of a situation that’s isn’t good for you and is contributing to your experience of unhappiness.

Healing Hate and UnhappinessYes, you read that right! I’ll repeat it – anger is a very useful emotion when it motivates you to get centered and take productive action to change something that’s causing you harm. It gives you the energy to pull yourself out of complacency and disloyalty to your own highest good.

The I Ching talks about these kinds of situations in the text of Hexagram #36 Censorship:
“…in areas of personal and spiritual development, this situation can help you learn to accept times of evil. If one attempts to aggressively deny or ignore evil, then evil is often nurtured in one form or another. Good and evil are as much a part of the cosmos as night and day. It is much easier to develop a sound character once evil is acknowledged and accepted as part of the world. ~ The I Ching Workbook, R. L. Wing

The trick to navigating anger is what you do with it after the heat of the moment. Do you use that energy to go for the results you really want or do you get stuck in it? Does hate take control over you?

Hate is stuck anger hardened into a whole belief system and feedback loop.

People like to bond with each other through hate, because it’s easy to feel justified when we can get others to agree with us.

We fixate our attention on the object of our hate and send angry thoughts toward it, thinking that somehow doing so will make it go away and ease our suffering. We generalize about people and refuse to accept that there might possibly be anything good about the object of our hate. We revel in the energy boost that anger creates and narcissists are especially good at taking advantage of that group energy.

Simply put, when we let our anger harden into hate, we get caught in a powerful collective feedback loop and miss the opportunity to transform a harmful situation for the better.

Resources for Healing Hate

There’s an old saying, “What I believe about you, I awaken within you.” To understand that better, compare the thought to “what I put out, comes back to me.”

These are the premises of the Law of Reciprocity, or Karma.

Karam and Healing Hate

If I buy into the idea that what I put out comes back to me at all, it would be pretty hard on me if I were to put out that any particular group of people are lying, cheating, dangerous, predators!

That kind of generalization simply is not helpful. Not only is it untrue, it would also cause me to:

  • Bind myself to the “lie” even more strongly
  • Cheat myself out of a lot of potential friends and supporters
  • Create dangerous situations for myself by feeding the seeds of violence in myself and others and,
  • Stamp out my own potential to be happy.

Yet returning hate for more hate is how the feedback loop gets maintained. When will we decide to stop feeding this self-perpetuating trap and step out of it?

Just to clarify what we mean by karma here –
Karma = Cause & Effect
i.e. I have a thought. I make a decision. I act on the decision.
Whatever I have followed through on has natural consequences.
Cause & Effect = Karma.

Since 2001, I have been developing and using the Intuitive Learning Circles with Reiki, Energy Healing, Hypnotherapy and practical shamanic practices to optimize my own spiritual growth and assist others in finding their way through the maze of our collective dysfunction.

This collection of Mind Exercises and Transformation Games is devoted to helping us to find a way out of this karmic bind.

Healing the Emotional Roots of Hate

How can we transform the stress and suffering that comes with the mindset of hate? I suggest that we start by enhancing our inner guidance. After all, we don’t want to run off in the heat of our anger and do something that is actually hurtful to us!

Take a few minutes with this Circle to breathe and relax. Calm your senses and bring them into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low.

Take some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to perceive your situation clearly. Notice how that calms you emotionally. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to achieve greater mind body integration.


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationThe Intuitive Learning Circles work best when you look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Why? Because the brain and the body communicate with each other through one set of channels when you are uncrossed and another set when you are crossed. If you can’t get the information one way, you might be able to get it in the other. The same goes for making corrections – we want whatever correction is needed to be made all of the time, not just some of the time.

If you try this, and it still doesn’t work, you may have an internal conflict or fixation that’s interfering with cognitive function. Not to worry. If that happens, scroll back up to the Conflicts and Fixations image above and relax into it.


Healing Hate: Releasing Agreements and Social Contracts

Next, I suggest that we release our agreement to hold the energy of hate in our nervous systems, as if it’s helpful to us! Don’t forget that many agreements to hate are based on social contracts from our ancestral, cultural and religious lines. Look at the Soul Contract Circle and imagine that you can mindfully send the symbol all the way up and down your spine, unlocking harmful agreements as you go:

“I gently release my nervous system from the binding energy of hate.”

“I release any agreement I have to buy into the energy and mindset of extremism and hate. I unlock ancestral chains that bind me. I release any vow I’ve taken to keep the destructive fires burning.”

“I release any ancestral/societal agreement I have to plant emotional distress and hatred in the ground or try to process it myself.

It’s time to stop perpetuating negativity in myself or Mother Earth. I now choose to create peaceful prosperity and understanding.”

Then, be more specific. Use the same Circle in a different way to identify and release agreements to hold hatred towards different people, groups or organizations that you feel are wrong. There are far more productive energies to use that will be more helpful to you, like a gentle violet flame.

If you’re willing, go through each item on your list with these positive affirmations:

“I release all my agreements to hate __________________.” (how people act, how hard my job is, how stuck I feel, etc.)

“I pull my energy back and release my agreements to react out of violence, resentment or revenge.”

“I release all agreements to mobilize the destructive energies of hate. I utilize gentler and more productive energies to manifest my highest good.”

Don’t forget to release any agreement to hate yourself! It’s amazing how much energy you can free up by doing this.

There are other agreements we can change to help us navigate out of the maze.

The out-dated system of the Patriarchy currently affirms that only certain classes of people are heard, respected. Release your agreements with that system and set up new agreements to organize around healthy and prosperous dealings in the New Paradigm that include balanced prosperity, equality and personal responsibility.

Agreements and Healing Hate

 

Another agreement to change would be to source your responses from a place of gratitude and joy, rather than from a fearful, greedy or vengeful place.

“I release agreements to source from fear, greed or revenge.”

“I decide Source from Gratitude and Joy.”

 

This symbol from Soul Prayer Charts helps you to interface with your environment more efficiently. Most of us need assistance in making the transition from the old paradigm of Water (Piscean Age) to the New Paradigm of Air (Aquarian Age). Relax and close down all heavy or destructive energy channels that your mind or body may still be open and vulnerable to.

“I close down harsh and harmful energy channels from the status quo.”

“I am open to generative Life Force to manifest improved health, happiness and communication channels.”

Healing hate requires a lot of change and in this new energy, it’s important that we be gentle with ourselves and take the time we need to integrate safely.

You’d be amazed at how much healing you’ve put into action with just this short introduction. Take a few minutes to contemplate the Master symbol for the Intuitive Learning Circles which puts you in touch with the deepest, wisest aspects of your being  – Old Sol.

Old Soul

“I release any ancestral tendencies to perpetuate hate, war or self-destruction.”

“I make a conscious choice to release shame, blame, revenge, resentment and societal patterns of self-hate.”

Healing Hate Compassionately.

How can we sort ourselves out of the roots of hate? 

Resources for Healing HateEspecially if you’re a good Samaritan or employed in one of the helping professions, confusion around hateful attitudes can easily escalate into dramas of monumental proportions.

Without even realizing it, you can get seriously off track from priorities that are vital to your health and well-being. Plus, it can happen so quickly, you might not even notice it until you’re up to your eyeballs in confusing and toxic emotions!

Now that you have an idea of what’s involved with freeing your heart and mind from the grip of hatred, you may want to get some assistance from Kuan Yin and her selected offerings of Advanced Transformation Games.

Power Circle – Access Your Strength

Kuan Yin’s Power Circle: Staying Grounded in Common Ground for the Common Good

Tuning in and going with the flow of nature is a difficult thing for most human beings. We’ve been trained since childhood to use force and effort to accomplish our aims. In fact, in many circles, it’s considered a weakness to behave in any other way.

Kuan Yin's Power Circles - Rabbit TracksSince 2009, Kuan Yin has been co-creating with us to find another, more peaceful way for those who truly desire to create in alignment with Nature. The overall objective of the plan has been to experience the abundance and joy of surrendering to the flow of creativity or “happiness”.

The purpose of each Stage in the Power Circle of Life is to illuminate how you can be more in the flow in any situation and this year, Kuan Yin has partnered with the Major Arcana Card of Strength to help us manifest more effectively in the New Paradigm…

Power Circle – Following MODERATION

We are receiving help from Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion who has guidance about staying grounded during times of great change and instability. She is guiding us through the I Ching, or Book of Change, an ancient Chinese text that follows and predicts movements and energy flow in the cosmos. Her advice, as always, is direct and to the point!

We are often under the influence of several I Ching flows. Kuan Yin refers to this as a “multiple highway pattern.” Whenever that happens, she recommends following the flow of Hexagram #15  MODERATION whenever possible.

Because there is so much going on, we can have difficulty staying grounded and moving forward on that Middle Road. Yet being grounded and following inner guidance are the keys to moving forward in a positive and beneficial way.

Before you get too far into this, go through a quick quiz to see if this Power Circle would be at all helpful for you. Simply gaze at the Intuitive Learning Circles and relax while you consider the accompanying questions or affirmations.

Consider what’s going on in your life right now. Ask yourself:

Old Soul“What is important about being able to manifest my current life goals? Are they worth it?” 

“Does it feel like I’m heading towards the Light or towards darkness?”

“Am I getting thrown off a lot? Am I working with the Earth or against her?”

How important is it that I stay in the I Ching Flow of MODERATION and follow the Middle Road?”

 

If it seems like you’re heading the wrong direction, ask yourself,

“What am I confused about?

Am I stuck in an energy, attitude or agenda from the old paradigm?”

“If so, how harmful is that to me?”

What, if anything, do I still need to learn from this situation?”

What do I need to do differently?”

 

Strength knows that being true to yourself is the best way to regain your balance. She knows how to be guided by that inner imperative – your Soul’s purpose.

You may not be able to put your dilemma into words yet, however, you do know when it feels right.

In this sequence of Ten Stages, you are given Transformation Games and Mind Exercises that are meant to keep you centered and on track in these beginning months of 2024.

Remember that we’re all awakening something entirely new within ourselves and, at the same time, we’re navigating a variety of RETURNING cycles of karma. Being centered and quick to notice undesirable patterns of behavior are the smartest ways to handle the challenges we’re facing. Treat yourself kindly and patiently forgive your inevitable misunderstandings and missteps. 

As a Learning Community, we can use our collective experiences to make corrections so we can be more grounded and able to move forward with our individual Soul purposes.  Working together, we can find answers that cannot be found in any other way.  

Invite the energy of your Soul to collaborate with STRENGTH to inspire powerful ways to follow the middle road this Winter in the New Paradigm.

What Stage Is Best for Me – Right Now?

There are 10 Stages of the Power Circle of Life to choose from ~

 1. Inspiration
2. Attention
3. Intention
4. Adaptation
5. Perception
6. Organization
7. Decision
8. Determination
9. Celebration
10. Completion

Each Stage has a game that Kuan Yin recommends to help us in the transition between 2023 and 2024.

Please note: If you’re feeling completely stuck. Don’t Despair! You may simply need to gather aspects of yourself back into the present again. Start with SOS for Collapse.

The first step is to take a moment to look at Old Soul (your higher guidance) and think about what you’re hoping to create. Then, ask your heart:

“What Stage would be most useful for me to look at now?”
Or you could ask yourself:
“Which number between 1 and 10 represents the best self awareness process for me right now – or is the best place to start?”

Remember to take the very first number that comes to you, because that is your Inner Wisdom speaking or your intuition.
Once you have your number, scroll down the list and check out that process. You might be surprised at what you’ve chosen, because your Higher Self has access to information that you do not. Trust your first response and explore the exercise anyway.

If you have a journal, make notes of important insights and ideas that come to you during the process. Feel free to sketch if you like. This is the intuitive way to determine which exercise is best for you right now!

Of course, if you want, you can always get help with Rheanni if you want more private coaching. Her contact info can be found at the bottom of this page…

1. Inspiration – Birthing a Heartfelt Desire

Todays Intuitive Reading - ModerationStrength requires repetition, therefore it follows that we need to be able to keep coming back to the fundamentals of what it means to find MODERATION.  Without a doubt, she recommends having a dependable way to come back from extremes and subconscious distractions and follow the middle road that’s guided by our Higher Selves. This Transformation Game is that foundation.

Establish a Strong Foundation for Staying Grounded.

2.  Attention – Focusing the Desire

Any new path may have distractions and dangers that you just cannot see clearly. Strength warns, “If a side road or project has caught your attention, it may seem so easy and inviting because you’ve been down it so many time before. Following it blindly may simply lead you back to where you began – circling around and around in a frustrating, no-win situation. 

Make Sure You’re Seeing It Right by Clearing Up Your Blind Spots.

3. Intention – Voicing the Desire

Power Circle - Voicing Your Desire In order to manifest important goals, especially ones that require change, your Essential Self needs to be fully present and willing to participate. This mind exercise takes you through a self discovery process where you can begin to understand why it seems so difficult to manifest your intention. Hint – it’s usually about a fear you picked up earlier in life. Now is your opportunity for deep self-healing.

Pull Together Your Natural Resources for Manifesting.

 4. Adaptation – Expanding an Awareness of the Possibilities

Most of us have not been allowed to speak our minds, let alone our hearts. When you’re ready to start claiming  mastery over yourself, you may experience resistance which can include problems with your Throat Chakra. This exercise helps you recalibrate so you can express yourself honestly and have access to your Free Will.

Clear your Throat Chakra and Reclaim Your Free Will.

Blockages to Unhappiness.

Let Go of Blockages That Keep You Stuck in the Past.

5. Perception – Activating the Imagination 

STRENGTHEN your imagination by listening to your special protector guidance. Don’t let old habits or agreements throw you off track. When learning to stay centered and travel the Middle Road – be sure you’ve got all the information you need and that you’re heading in the right direction. Stop and consider a new perspective from your Soul that will help you come up with a truly meaningful path.

Make Sure You’re Heading in the Right Direction with Clear Perception. 

6. Organization – Refine and Prioritize

Power Circle - Simplify Your LifeYou are a being of Love that has it’s own distinct vibration and ways of creating. When you’re organizing your energy, efforts and direction around the guidance of your Soul, amazing things can happen. Stop wasting time on distractions, dead ends and no win situations. Organize your activities around what works and what you really want to have happen.

Simplify your life by re-organizing around Love.

7. Decision – Conscious Alignment of Energy

Power Circle - Decide to Go For JoyIf you haven’t decided to enjoy yourself on your journey yet, you’d be amazed at how much it will change things for the better. Refocus your intuition, common sense, logic, instincts and observation away from the perfectionism and judgements of the outside world. Take some time to realize what’s really been going on in your head and make joy your focus and priority.

Align your decisions with what brings you joy. 

8. Determination – Commitment to Follow Through

Power Circle - Self Love QuizOnce you’ve stated definitively what you want to create, the Universe comes in and says, “Really? That’s not what you’ve done before… are you sure?” And then it proceeds to show you all the reasons why you haven’t been able to do it before. It brings you the karma you need to clear and the behaviors that have gotten in the way. So, this is the stage when challenges and crazy things will show up and when they do, keep the faith. Hold to your convictions. Know that the Universe is also there to help you set them right.

Keep showing up for yourself

9. Celebration – Experience of Success and Satisfaction

Power Circle - Move beyond GroupthinkDo you know what success means to you? In today’s world of algorithms and social media, it’s easy to get thrown off by cultural expectations and agendas. At any point in your Power Circle you may need to check back with your original intention. Does anything need to change? Are you being true to yourself? Unclear or wishy washy intentions create unclear results. Detach from any entanglements that don’t really reflect your needs and values.

Move Beyond Groupthink and Herd Mentality to Find Your Own Success. 

Develop Precognition to Stay Out of Trouble. 

10. Completion – Acceptance of the Circle of Life

Power Circle - Nourishing YourselfThe end of a cycle is the very best time to rest. Your body knows a lot about what it needs and how well you’re nourishing yourself as you go through the natural process of completion. Re-assessing how you’ve been taking care of yourself and accepting where you’re at points the way to the next cycle of creation.

Tune Into How You’re Nourishing Yourself at the End of a Cycle.

Nourishing Personal Responsibility

Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change – Nourishing Personal Responsibility.

Rheanni Lightwater - Navigate Confusion
Rheanni Lightwater, Reiki Master Teacher & Feng Shui Consultant

In this intuitive reading, Soul Resources offers a variety of SOS formulas and Transformation Games using the Intuitive Learning Circles and the I Ching for nourishing personal responsibility as we move into Spring, 2024. 

The I Ching 

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingThe original intent of the I Ching was based on an Eastern philosophy of observation and marking changes in natural and human events. Through many centuries and contributions from shamans and master teachers, including Lau Tzu and Confucius, the Book of Change was developed into a full philosophy for applying beneficial human conduct to varying circumstances. The Art of Feng Shui is part of that philosophy.

Understanding the Larger Picture

Changes in your environment have been very unstable and will continue to aggravate a volatile social and political environment. Many influences are swirling together making this a chaotic time, driven by conscious fears, misperceptions and karmic consequences rising up to the surface. Unconscious karma is often the cause of problems that keep returning and repeatedly throw people out of balance. If you’re wise, you’ll slow down and take a closer look at experiences that feel oh, so familiar.

Truth Mandala Todays Intuitive Reading

“The Truth has no Master and is indebted to none.
Therein lies its power to set us free.”

The reasons why things haven’t been going well are already making themselves known. Those who double down on resisting the Truth will likely experience a level of karmic backlash which could be quite painful. The good news is, if you’re willing to slow down, pay attention and make appropriate corrections, you’ll find amazing opportunities to correct your karma. There are opportunities to set things right that have been amiss for a very long time.

♦ Poor communication is at the core of many of our difficulties. Using the I Ching flow of MODERATION will help turn things around.

The I Ching

Navigate Volatility through MODERATION

The I Ching energy has been traveling in a multiple highway pattern for some time and it’s likely to remain that way for much of the next year.

Todays Intuitive Reading - ModerationWhenever that happens, it’s best to find the flow of Hexagram #15 MODERATION or “the Middle Road” to help you keep your balance. The original text offers some specific advice to follow:

“This is a good time to bring some equilibrium to your more personal relationships. Examine your deepest feelings and see if you are harboring any extremes in your expectations or selfish desires in your motivations. Try to moderate any unrealistic ideals.”  ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

 

The Chinese Zodiac

We have fully transitioned into the Year of the Dragon on February 10th, 2024, which is a very popular archetypal energy.

Todays Intuitive Reading - The Year of the DragonThe positive qualities of Dragon are: Energetic, Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous. However, the negative qualities can also be: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of persistence. Unrealistic.

Complimentary Zodiac Signs are Monkey and Rat.

The Dragon’s Secret Friend is Rooster.

His energy goes decidedly against Dog.

If you’re having trouble getting in sync with this energy and staying that way,  use this Transformation Game to adapt to the Year of the Dragon.

If you keep finding yourself in the middle of chaos, this Mind Exercise will help you Develop Precognition to Stay Out of Trouble. 

The Tarot

The Tarot Major Arcana Card for 2024 is # VIII: Strength (2 + 0 + 2 + 4 = 8)

The basic meanings for the Strength card are Power. Action. Courage. Commitment and Magnanimity. The number 8 is the infinity symbol upright.

Subconsciousness is the Woman in this card and the image suggests that she has the Lion in complete control. This card conveys the potential for an expansion of consciousness that makes for greater control over our instinctual animal natures.

However, in reverse it can mean: Abuse of power. Despotism. Weakness or Discord.


In some Tarot decks, Justice is the number 11 and in others it’s the number 8.

The meanings for the Justice card are: Equity, Karma. Balance. Discernment. Descrimination. Illumination of truths.

Reversed: Imbalance. Bigotry. Bias. Prejudice. Excessive severity.

Needless to say, the playing out of Karma and karmic law is front and center in many people’s minds during this election year. The potential for anything to happen is possible. For a more positive outcome, the archetypal energy of Justice will need to be activated through a willingness to pierce through the darkness of denial and ignorance. Do we have the ability to do that? Are we willing?

That brings us back to the primary Tarot energy for the year –  Strength

Strength often represents the great cosmic force in the human organism called kundalini. Whenever working with the instinctual forces of nature, one must be careful and patient, otherwise things can go wildly out of control.

The key to awakening the power safely is to learn how to control your body, your mind and your emotions. The same is true for how you can effectively navigate the volatile energies that will rise and fall unexpectedly.

Slowing down, centering yourself and learning how to stay balanced in difficult situations are the most important skills to master.

Four Seasons

Staying in Sync  with the Four Seasons ~

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Four Seasons from Gifts from the Rainforest46. The Four Seasons – Each season reminds us to follow the natural cycles of life. Staying in sync with them brings harmony to body, mind and spirit.

Are you out of sync?

Are you worrying about the future or stuck in the past?

What would help you remedy that so you can enjoy being in the present?

Healing Action: Bring yourself into the present by becoming aware of your body and your environment. Come back into alignment with the natural cycles of Life.


The Circle of Life

All of life follows a natural cycle of
birth, growth, decay and regeneration.
However, the ego becomes impatient and
wants to see immediate results.
It longs for the green of summer all year long.
The creatures of the rainforest
laugh because they know this is folly.
The plants cry because they know
the danger in this kind of thinking.
Allow the seasons to teach you
how to reconnect to the joy and fulfillment
that is available in each moment.
There is no time but now.
Bring yourself into harmony with what is.

Further Exploration into the Healing Circle of the Four Seasons:

Four Seasons

This Circle of Life beckons you to step into the simplicity of being here now. The small mind thinks that doing so would be too difficult. Why is that?

Perhaps it fears the loss of control that comes with being open and receptive. After all, birth, death and rebirth seem like scary things, yet if we cling to these fears, we will never taste the sweetness of life. 

A fearful mind organizes itself around dissatisfaction and all the reasons why things couldn’t possibly work out. It loves to fixate on all the reasons not to do something rather than the benefits that could be reaped from moving forward. The fear of approaching winter causes it to hoard. It idealizes the birth of spring and yet resists the change that’s required. It makes up stories about how things would be so much better if others just conformed to its way of doing things. It likes to take snapshots. It doesn’t like the chaos of change.

We could be much happier if we would relax and organize around the natural circle of life that accepts change and goes with it. Watch how the plants and animals handle this and you will come to understand that you can never go back to the way you were yesterday. By the same token, you can never know exactly what the future holds. 

The Circle itself can help you know whether or not your environment needs to adapt though a good feng shui treatment or space clearing. Just contemplate the environment you’re concerned about and gaze softly into the Circle. When you’re ready, ask: ”Is the layout and flow in my environment in sync with Nature or out of sync? If it’s not, what might help?”

Life is best experienced in the present. Accept that you and your environment are constantly changing.

Monkey Medicine

Casting Stones of Forgiveness with Monkey Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

Monkey Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

#28 Monkey – Monkey offers an opportunity to respond differently in the face of cruelty, shame or blame. Learn how to use your energy more wisely. Life has so much more to offer!

Are you spending too much time fighting and finding fault with others? 

Is your life too hard? If so, what would you rather be doing?

Healing Action: Identify if you’re involved in harmful group think, curses, grudges or bad attitudes. Repairing the damage done begins by forgiving yourself first.


Angry Monkey

The angry mind is like an angry monkey.
It swings wildly from one tree to another,
casting coconuts and squealing curses at the top of its lungs.
The monkey-mind eagerly casts insults and stones
on friends and enemies alike whenever it feels threatened.
It has no thought about what consequences have been put into motion.
Vigilantly monitor your monkey mind.
How is it feeding you with poison?
Learn to deflect ill will from others by refusing to take their threats personally.
Their curses are merely a reflection of how they feel about themselves.
Cultivate humility when you think ill of others.
Your curses are merely a reflection of how you feel about yourself.
Approach it with compassion, and nourish it
with the milk of human kindness.
Forgiveness begins within.

Further Exploration into Monkey Medicine:

Monkey Medicine

Monkey medicine speaks of the need to clear your mind of preconceived ideas and concepts that have been cursing your attempts to be peaceful and happy. Somehow, an angry mind is dominating the situation.

As you gaze at the Circle, relax and ask your Soul: “Am I mad at myself? Is someone else mad at me? What am I afraid of?”

Monkey is showing us that within every stone that’s cast against another is an opportunity to learn and respond differently. Redeem yourself first and a path will open that leads to forgiving others. Take that opportunity and your life will change forever.

It could be that you’re being a projection to someone because they’re seeing something in you that they don’t like about themselves. On the other hand, you may feel like others are throwing accusations or ridicule at you simply because that’s what you expect them to do.

Don’t fall for such wasteful mental activity! Look deeper into your own insecurities. This may seem unpleasant at first, but there’s a gift waiting for you if you’re willing to get to the bottom of this predicament. Usually it involves letting go of an old way of thinking about yourself and the world.

The monkey may also be exposing a collective illusion that’s been bedeviling you in this situation. See it for what it is. Break the spell that keeps you from being who you truly are in the face of destructive group think. Once you can transcend the lie that’s being told, a new connection will be opened to you.

Gently coax your monkey mind out of the dark undergrowth of fear and resentment. Bring it into the light of day. Using Love and Forgiveness, encourage it to swing freely through the trees until it can travel to the very highest regions of the forest canopy with ease!

Shamans Leaves

Clear the Clutter Out of Your Mind with Shaman’s Leaves

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Shamans Leaves from Gifts from the Rainforest32. Shaman’s Leaves – when the mind goes into survival mode, it can pull progress to a complete stop. Shamans leaves shake out resistance and fear so that the journey can continue.

What are you afraid of?

What would you like to shake off? What mental confusion needs to be cleared away? What might help you do that?

Healing Action: The critical mind wants to control you through fear or panic. Do not abandon your efforts – persist. Sit up. Breathe. Shake it out! Now is not the time to give in.


The Shaman’s Leaves

On shamanic journeys, resistance is expected.
When this happens, the small mind
will think up every possible reason to give up
and retreat from your Soul’s journey.
The shaman then brings out his dried leaves
and shakes them in your face
for however long it takes
for the small mind to surrender.
These dried leaves contain yellow magic –
the courage to endure against all
manipulations of the mind.
See your fear for what it is.
Stay with it.
Endure.

Further Exploration into the Medicine of the Shaman’s Leaves:

You have decided that things are supposed to happen in a certain way and because of your limited thinking, you are about to give up. Don’t. 

  • If you can stop thinking so much and open to the possibility of different scenarios, the block can remove itself.
  • If you can open yourself up to new ideas the world will respond to you differently.
  • If you refuse, you remain chained to outmoded thoughts, habits and behaviors that will naturally lead to self-defeat and self-pity.
  • If you are waiting for a guarantee, you will just keep delaying the completion of your goal. 
  • If your mind is telling you that something should be happening in a certain way ask your heart: “According to who and how would they know?” 
  • If you don’t have much self-discipline, now is a good time to develop some. 
Shamans Leaves

Do you need to stop trying to force something to work out a certain way and just trust the process? Nature has a way of righting things on its own; allow this to work for you.
It could be that a recurring pattern of post-traumatic stress is blocking your mind and making it hard to think clearly. Pent up energy needs to be released. Let the Circle help your body do what it needs to do. Use your breath, rhythmic motion, sound and visuals to bring the blockage up and shake it out. Once the stagnant energy is released, allow your body and nervous system to calm down with slower, deeper breaths and softer, rocking movements.
Or
Early childhood and/or cultural conditioning is blocking your spiritual connection. Take the pressure off of having to be a certain way. Doing the opposite of what you think you should do is often the cure. Visualize a warm breeze blowing anxious thoughts up and out of your mind, like a little whirlwind of leaves.
