Astrological predictions for 20 May to 21 June 2013
I am a part of the change that I see in the world – it’s no secret
An island is in the sea – it is not alone – it feeds itself on the bounty of the sea and lives by the weather of the ocean.
It is often easy to look at the problems in the world without seeing ways in which you can actively participate in solutions. Finding opportunities to roll up your sleeves and do some good in this world can be a very difficult thing to do, and for those who have lost a connection to the natural world, it can seem impossible to pitch in for Mother Earth while living an urban lifestyle, working 40+ hours a week, and commuting.
When it comes to spiritual warriors on assignment, it does seem to me that men and women show up to battle with different weapons. Men are tremendously skilled at wielding true information driven by love, and women hold the disarming weapon… love driven by true information.
It doesn’t just work in theory. Spiritual warriors have been and are using the great combo in battle. Imagine coldness, cruelty and deceit being hit with both. Destroying lies and transmuting pain – both work! The third force is creation, and we’re in that process as well. Balance of the masculine and feminine: it gives birth to the renewal.
It’s not easy to stay sensitive in such a cruel, insensitive world but it’s imperative. That’s the beauty of empathic souls – they have open and loving hearts, even if it hurts, which is why each of us needs to generate and receive so much love and encouragement.
Loving empathy is its own reward, even if we’re not showered directly, personally with supporting human love. The spiritual is supreme. Connection to Source is our unfailing, unflinching infinite supply line of everything we need. But it’s sure nice when that consciousness is manifest in another human being and can be shared.
No longer do the Eastern practices of yoga, tai chi and meditation remain esoteric mysteries to us Westerners. Eccentric gurus living in secluded ashrams and mountain-side dojos have passed on their secrets to worldly students. Ancient texts have been translated into multiple languages, analyzed and explained. Students have become teachers and now eagerly share the elements of theory and physical practice with anyone willing to listen.
Higher states of consciousness (HSCs) – or awakening experiences, as I prefer to call them – are moments of revelation, when we perceive reality at a heightened intensity. The world around us comes to life, and is filled with an atmosphere of harmony and meaning. A spirit-force seems to pervade all things, and the spaces between them, bringing everything into oneness.
We experience ourselves as part of this oneness too, and feel ecstatic or serene. At the highest intensity of awakening, we might feel that we’ve become one with the universe, and attain a state of complete fullness and perfection. The whole material world may dissolve away, into an ocean of spiritual radiance.
This article will presume you have a basic knowledge of the pineal gland, an important endocrine gland that is said to be the seat of enlightenment. If you need to back up a little and inform yourself more about what the pineal gland is, you can start here before reading further.
Activating your pineal gland, or spiritual ‘eye’ and detoxing it are two different things. In essence, the detoxification allows you to remove the crystallized deposits, which keep the gland as a caged bird, or a princess jailed in her own ivory tower.
The process of creation of matter and spiritual life at the beginning of the universe is one of the greatest of mysteries and understanding its basic principles is important for understanding how enlightenment works, as enlightenment is the re-absorption back into the one, the divine source of creation.
An ancient Taoist text wisely states that those who wish to reach enlightenment must look for the place where creation originally came from:
Whoever seeks eternal life must search for the place whence human nature and life originally sprang.

As previously discussed the last New Moon was in Aries, and dealt with our personal relationships. Now we have the New Moon in Taurus. The sign of Taurus is an earth sign, here we are dealing with the tangible. So this month the focus is on our possessions, ownership, and our security. Let’s also not forget that it is a Solar Eclipse as well, one that we here in South Africa do unfortunately not see as the New Moon was exact at 2:28 am , however we still feel the effects of it.
One of the most common ways we dilute our power in our relationships is by having a belief that others are there to complete us.
It is this belief that begins our external search (often unconscious) for the parts of us that we perceive to be lacking/missing in ourselves.
Becoming more conscious of our ideas of what we think we need in our relationships, we begin to create an awareness of the qualities that we seem to make other people responsible for.
Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. In fact, our five-year long research project on this sacred plant has revealed over 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications, as well as 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects. This entire database of 1,585 ncbi-hyperlinked turmeric abstracts can be downloaded as a PDF at our Downloadable Turmeric Document page, and acquired either as a retail item or with 200 GMI-tokens, for those of you who are already are members and receive them automatically each month.
“ . . .The creative advance into novelty – is part of the prehension of each and every being in existence, and the creative-part cannot be ripped from the being?part without severe violence.” – Ken Wilber
We can bend a spoon with really cold ice cream, but we can also affect matter with our brains. When we think, for example, we can actually change how our neurons configure. Some DNA researchers even propose that heart-focused intention can alter DNA, or so says a persevering study at the Heart Math Institute. Is the material world ‘real’ anyhow?
