FORECAST – DECEMBER 2016 : COMPASSION & KINDNESS

https://thepowerpath.com/monthly-forecast/december-2016-monthly-forecast/

“This month is all about turning our focus away from anger, blame, self-judgment, hopelessness, frustration, fear and worry. These are all attitudes and emotions that belong to a lower vibration and they do not serve us at this time. We need to be turning ourselves in the direction of the higher vibration of COMPASSION [and KINDNESS] if we are to be effective in our lives, with ourselves and with others…

If you don’t have compassion and kindness for yourself, you cannot possibly practice it for others. So start with yourself this month. Review all the ways you have judged yourself for not being good enough, smart enough… not successful enough, not strong enough, not brave enough, not powerful enough, not perfect enough, not useful enough…

How have you judged yourself for not showing up, for feeling fearful, for missing opportunities, for not getting your life together, for staying in bad situations for too long, for being weak, for being indecisive, for not setting good boundaries, for not protecting yourself or putting yourself first?

This lack of compassion and kindness for yourself will keep you mired in this lower vibration especially if it includes blame, anger and resentment. This is the month to turn all of this around. There is much work to do on the self. It is easy to be distracted with “what is going on out there” in terms of injustice, negative behaviors and bad choices. You cannot do anything about that. You cannot change what is “going on out there” but you can change what is going on in your own home and your own life…

After reviewing all the ways you believe to have let yourself down, focus on the changes you wish to make… It is also very important that you practice being in a higher vibration as much as you can. Beauty, wonder, awe, love, and of course compassion and kindness will always lead you to a higher vibration and a higher centered experience.”

New Moon in Sagittarius

“At the time of the New Moon, the Sun and Moon are strongly square (90 degrees away from) both Neptune and the karmic North/South Nodes. A square aspect always indicates a certain amount of discomfort, which is often a prerequisite for change; if we are comfortable, we rarely look for ways to make improvements.

With the Nodes involved in the lunation chart, the coming month is a critical one in our evolutionary process. We are being compelled, through the emotional uneasiness we feel, to move from the negative traits associated with the Pisces South Node to the positive traits represented by the Virgo North Node. This means moving:

*From escapism to participation
*From confusion to detail-orientation
*From self-doubt to self-confidence
*From victimization to focused intention
*From looking to be rescued to taking responsibility for change
*From overwhelm to having strong boundaries

With Neptune aligned with the South Node, our attachment to these old patterns is dissolving. As we release these patterns, we discover new ways to take charge of our circumstances and open the door to improvement and success.”

Mainstream Media Pushing Neo-McCarthyism

http://www.globalresearch.ca/mainstream-media-blames-russia-for-fake-news-while-pushing-neo-mccarthyism/5559136

“It seems The Washington Post is playing a key role in waging a new McCarthy-style witch hunt targeting any independent websites which dare to challenge the prevailing anti-Russian party line currently dominating the mainstream political and media establishment – evident beyond any doubt after reading this latest feature in The Washington Post written by Craig Timberg entitled, “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, Experts say.

“Experts say”? Make no mistake, this was a true-to-form propaganda piece by the Washington Post, and in itself could be classed as actual “fake news.” …

[W]hat’s going on right now with America’s mainstream media is nothing short of tragic. More than anything, the 2016 Election showed the world how biased, corrupt and broken America’s papers of record have become. Instead of emulating Woodward and Bernstein, it seems most of  the ‘journalists’ are channeling Stephen Glass instead…

The mainstream media continues to lower the bar on what it claims is ‘journalism’.  Just when you thought you’ve seen the worst, unsourced, completely contrived “investigation,” the Washington Post, which used to be regarded as the paragon of American journalism, has produced a rant of an article that is written as if it were a student submission…

It’s pretty incredible to see The Washington Post basing a case on an anonymous website – one which is conducting a virtual witch hunt, clearly with malicious intent (to smear some 200 websites), as a primary journalistic source? Incredible…

In short, the entire US corporate media seems to function with a singular hive mind, aggressively promoting one war after another, and elevating a new geopolitical foe every few years. This can be explained in part by the defense industry’s ownership of US mainstream outlets, and the hundreds of millions dollars these Pentagon-linked companies pour into both TV, print and online ads – none of that explains how editors, writers and producers at these outlets can sit there and still claim they are still performing their duty as part of the Fourth Estate.

As it stands, mainstream journalism is truly dead in America.”
