New Moon in Taurus – April 26, 2017

https://thepowerpath.com/moon-updates/new-moon-update-4-26-17/

“A New Moon is always a good time to reset intentions and do an inventory of where you have been and where you wish to go. This is especially true on this new moon as you may have been through a lot of change, chaos, choices and letting go.

It is a good time to ask for more clarity of intention if you need it and to focus on creating a fairly detailed action plan based on your intentions. We have some very grounded energy to work with during this New Moon time, so think about what you need in terms of support and make sure to ask for it.” ~Lena Stevens

“We are listening and responding to the heartbeat of our galaxy at this time. You can run around like a chicken or you can press your inner ear to that heartbeat and align, listen and entrain to what is immense and at the center of our universe…

If we’re well focused (Saturn) we can receive in lightning transmission new ways of perceiving and communicating who we really are in a shifting reality. Every aspect of limitation (especially mental) you can let go gives Spirit an opportunity to fill that space in you with brilliance.” ~Patricia Liles

Be Gentle With Yourself: New Moon in Taurus

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/4/25/be-gentle-with-yourself-new-moon-in-taurus-2017

“Use this New Moon to slow down the pace of your life and take some time to listen carefully to your body, your heart, and the natural world. Whatever problems you’re currently trying to solve will be more easily digested by taking some time to unplug from the hectic external environment. Take some time for yourself. Eat well, listen to beautiful, soothing music, go for a hike or gentle walk in the natural world–anything to help relieve your nervous system. With Mercury still retrograde, there’s no need to rush. Your focus will become more clear in a few weeks, especially if you take this time to be gentle with yourself.” ~Chad Woodward

Scientists Discover Psychedelic Substances Raise Consciousness Level

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/scientists-discover-psychedelic-substances-raise-consciousness-level-video_042017

“Scientists claim to have found the first evidence that psychedelic drugs create a “higher level of consciousness.”  LSD, ketamine, and psilocybin were all found to increase tiny magnetic fields produced by the brain.”

Increased spontaneous MEG signal diversity for psychoactive doses of ketamine, LSD and psilocybin

“We have demonstrated, for the first time, that measures of neural signal diversity that are known to be sensitive to conscious level, are also sensitive to the changes in brain dynamics associated with the psychedelic state. We found that the psychedelic state induces increased brain-wide signal diversity as compared to placebo, across a range of measures and three different psychedelic compounds… Together, these findings constitute a new neural correlate of the psychedelic state that may have important broader implications for our understanding of the neural correlates of consciousness.”

The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol Consumption

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/04/13/spiritual-consequences-alcohol-consumption/

“We have to ask why alcohol is legal throughout most of the world, yet in many countries, and specifically the United States, psychedelics are illegal. The conscious and safe use of psychedelics or “visionary medicines” are known to assist in mind expansion, to initiate spiritual experiences where people have communed with the divine, healed numerous physical and spiritual ailments, increase intelligence, help to re-pattern the brain in a positive way, assist people in aligning with their soul’s purpose, and have inspired many people to create great works of art and other innovative creations.

It seems that these substances would definitely be banned and discouraged if there truly is an agenda seeking to oppress the human potential and keep us “in the dark” regarding who we are as spiritual beings, our innate potential, and the path to empowerment.”

Becoming Addiction-Free

https://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2017/02/becoming-addiction-free/

“The insidious thing about addictions is that all addictions weaken the prefrontal cortex, which is the part of your brain associated with self-discipline and willpower. The more addictions you have, the weaker your self-regulation abilities become, which increases your susceptibility to further addictions. One addiction tends to invite others, and pretty soon you find yourself with a half-dozen addictions, although you may only be consciously aware of one or two of them…

The truth is that all addictions weaken us. Addictions lower our ability to discipline ourselves. They derail our best plans to one degree or another. They cause us to live more compulsively and less consciously. And as so many people report after overcoming a major addiction, life is better on the other side. It can take a lot of patience and resolve to get there though.

Even if it takes years, if we truly want to live consciously, then becoming addiction-free must be our gold standard in this area. Even if we never reach it, it’s wise to hold this standard as our goalpost. The closer we get to it, the better off we’ll be.

Imagine what your life would be like with no addictions. You’d be more disciplined than ever. You’d have the ability to make conscious choices in each moment. You wouldn’t have repetitive compulsions wasting your time or renting space in your mind. Your thinking would be more rational. You’d enjoy more freedom. You’d have more energy and better focus. You’d probably save money, and you’d surely save time.

It takes a lot of strength to face an addiction. It can take even more strength to face the demons hiding behind that addiction… Since addictions take us out of alignment with truth, we must do our best to shed them, no matter how difficult the challenge.” ~Steve Pavlina

Neil Kramer : Population Weaponization

http://neilkramer.com/parapolitical-surgery-on-freeman-tv/

Neil Kramer talks to Freeman, host of Freeman TV.

“Discernment arises from, let’s say, 10 percent knowledge that is learned, that’s scholarly study information, but 90 percent, 90 percent, personal experience. That is: getting out in the world, speaking to people, listening, making mistakes, getting it wrong, collapsing, having triumphs, fostering excellence, forming friendships, knowing love. Life. Real life. How to conduct yourself. How to communicate. All of that juicy, fascinating foundation of life… That stuff is easy over the period of 100 years, if you’re left to it.

But if you go to school and college and then work, you miss all of it. You never get to sharpen that discernment through living because you can’t have the time and energy within the pathetic rigid structures of imperial education and commerce; they’re not there. So the system keeps people busy enough, too busy, that they’re always on this hamster wheel chasing around to simply – I mean, why are people doing it? Shelter, transport, clothing, food, and a bit of leisure. Pathetic. Absolutely retched way of living…

It’s ironic that you can’t see it while you’re in it… The compulsion to engage in commerce is the big trick of society. It takes your time away and without time, it’s almost impossible to develop discernment… No time, no discernment.

If you do have time, and you can sit outside the system – which is everybody’s privilege in creation to do that, it’s not fortune or good luck, it doesn’t happen to you just by mistake; you have to build your bridge out of the system – if you do that, and if you have time, discernment will begin to arise. But, you have to generate that.

Most people are so hopelessly entangled in this treachery of commerce in life, which is put upon them since infancy, that they can’t summon up the clarity or the strength to even identify that there’s a problem in their life, let alone fix it and move on to better ways.”

A Larger Focus : Full Moon in Libra

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/4/5/a-larger-focus-full-moon-in-libra-2017

“This month’s Full Moon occurs in tropical Libra. Venus is slowing down, getting ready to turn direct, while Mercury just turned retrograde itself. Saturn is also in retrograde… [W]hen planets station (especially several at once as we are now experiencing), we often find ourselves at a crossroads or transitional point in our life narratives…

Venus’ station has us focusing on our values, self-worth, and relationships… Saturn’s station is likely to give you a reality-check by accentuating limitations and challenges we’re currently facing. If you’ve felt a bit frustrated with some circumstances in your life, know that Saturn is helping you step up and take responsibility for yourself… Mercury, well, it always tends to slow things down and create some setbacks alongside the usual technical and communicative issues.

Luckily, the Full Moon in Libra conjoins Jupiter. That helps to open up new possibilities, opportunities, and connections for us at the right moment. However, don’t overestimate what you can handle. Don’t be surprised if the universe throws you quite a lot with this Full Moon. Your job is to mindfully discern what it is you’re capable of taking on…

Give yourself extra time and space to gain clarity. Urgent and pressing emergencies aside, Mercury’s retrograde cycle suggests holding off on making big decisions right now. Give yourself a few weeks to sort it all out… What you’re looking for won’t manifest if you actually look for it. That might sound strange, but Pablo Picasso summed it up when he said, “I do not seek, I find.”’

Mercury Retrograde – April 2017

http://www.aquariuspapers.com/astrology/2017/04/the-guide-of-souls-in-april-2017-mercury-slowing-down-preparing-to-go-retrograde-at-5-taurus.html

“This [Mercury Retrograde] will give us multiple angles of understanding about how our past created our present, or how our present will create our future. We will see how actions led us to the threshold of new life chapters where something had to be left behind. Mercury will show us what we have to prepare for, and why some things must be buried so we may move forward unencumbered by the ghosts of the past…

This is an awakening retrograde period that will give us inspired understanding, and allow us to see how our past, present, and future are a continuum of growth into our uniqueness. This begins the fulfillment of the promise we were offered in the Summer of 2016, and by June many things will be fulfilled in a great way, perfect for who we are. In fact, this will be so favorable that it will bring us exactly what we need, or show us how all our deepest needs were met as we let go of the past…

This Mercury retrograde will offer us opportunities to look back and find value in knowing we moved when it was time to move, said goodbye when it was time to say goodbye, and by letting go, opened the door to a new life. We will gain an understanding of what is beyond appearances, and cut through illusions to find a new reality…

This will be another important retrograde, where the past will be reviewed to see what we said goodbye to, or need to say goodbye to, in order to open the door to a life renewal. It will help us rehearse or do the research we need to get ready to spring forward in May, [to get] clear about what we know, what we need to know, and what must happen if we are to move forward into living a more natural and enjoyable life.”

FORECAST – APRIL 2017 : INTENSITY

https://thepowerpath.com/monthly-forecast/april-2017-monthly-forecast/

“Everything is intensified this month. Nothing escapes. If you are grieving it will be at a level you have never experienced. If you are ecstatic, it will be almost more than you can handle. The higher emotional center is paired with the instinctive center this month in an interesting relationship whose purpose is to stretch you like a rubber band, expanding your container to eventually be more, do more, receive more, understand more and experience more. The ultimate goal is to break through the membrane of our limited beliefs about how this universe works and what we are actually capable of creating…

April is full of growing pains. We are in the process of replacing the fabric and patterns of how we operate in this physical universe with a new matrix and energetic circuitry much like replacing a light fixture that was only able to handle 100 watts to one that can handle 1000. And then replacing the bulb from 100 watts to 1000 watts. Imagine the intensity of light from that sudden change…

When you have this level of intensity you can actually make permanent radical changes in your life…

This is a great month to take risks and put yourself out there, reaching for a bigger dream, a better life, a more meaningful relationship, increased wealth, health and vitality, and a more fulfilling sense of worth, work and essence. This will take discipline and trust. Reaching for and experiencing the highs and the higher centers will always swing the other way at some point giving you the point of reference of the other end of the spectrum. The task will be to stay neutral, out of judgment and proceed to do what is necessary to continue clearing the lower frequency energies (physical, emotional and mental) out of your life.”
