SUPER MOON in Gemini – 2017

http://www.mysticmamma.com/full-moon-supermoon-in-gemini-december-3rd-2017/

“Depending on which direction we choose to look, we can feel profound inspiration and hope or great frustration and disillusionment. Since both Saturn and Mercury are at the same degree as the Galactic Center, this alignment indicates an opportunity for a major reset. This is a time when we can take significant steps in releasing old patterns that have blocked our progress…

This Full Moon is also a Super Moon, which means it occurs when the Moon is at perigee, the point in its orbit when it is closest to the Earth. Given that a Full Moon is already associated with heightened emotions, we can expect that a perigee Full Moon will increase our sensitivity on many levels… [A]s our minds take a detour from their usual rational route, we are more open to higher-level insights and signs and synchronicities.”

“Imagine that we are looking at ourselves in a shattered mirror. We find shards as we move through life which give us a more complete reflection of who we are as we go along. Initially, in our early life, there is very little we know and see in ourselves, so those who care for us become the reflection we see in ourselves — and this is how we become conditioned to believe we are things we are not.

From that perspective, our journey of de-conditioning is actually one of finding pieces of the shattered mirror, of seeking and finding our true reflection. We find pieces of that mirror in everything we seek, attract and desire, even the less desirable aspects we find in ourselves and attract into our lives help to bring us toward seeing our inherent wholeness. Our relationships, the people we are attracted to, the work we do and all of our experiences are all little pieces of that mirror…

So today, as the Full Moon in Gemini shares its light with us… take a 360 degree view of your life’s reflection right now, and contemplate what you are seeking in that picture and how you can integrate what you are seeking for deeper levels of wholeness and being. Ask yourself: How can you love and honor yourself more deeply through your experiences? How can you be more understanding and compassionate of yourself, and create the life that makes your heart sing?

As you bring deeper levels of love and compassion into yourself, so too will you find deeper levels of love and compassion in everything around you — as within, so without. That is the nature of our ‘mirror’ reality.”

FORECAST – DECEMBER 2017 : UPGRADE

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

“Navigating this month will take focus and discipline. You cannot be lazy about your practices and if you say you are going to do something or start a project, program or discipline, you better be prepared to follow through. There is a fine line of balance between focus and imagination, between your will and your intuition. You need all of them to work together and in harmony…

We can struggle a bit with fear of the unknown but remember that fear and worry are usually about things that have not yet happened so part of the discipline of the month is to stay present… This is an active month and one of transition, movement, preparation and improvementIt all leads to an upgrade.

Think of yourself as a computer. If your computer is beginning to show signs of not being able to keep up with new programs and needs more memory and a higher processing speed, it is time for an upgrade. While the upgrade is in process, the computer is down. When it comes back up, there are often glitches that need to be fixed or refinements made to the way things are organized. When it is rebooted, you are able to do and process more. It is the same with our physical, mental, emotional and energy bodies…

This is rather an exciting month as long as you can keep your eye on the ultimate goal and not get mired in the discomfort of the process. It will be important to pay close attention to your daily details and to stay really present with what is working and what isn’t. The only way to successfully upgrade is to tell the truth about what needs it and then to be disciplined about taking the necessary steps…

[S]tay awake, stay present, tell the truth, and get serious about dreaming of what you always wanted and putting your discipline behind it.”

Hacking Into Your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Serotonin, Endorphins, & Oxytocin

http://theutopianlife.com/2014/10/14/hacking-into-your-happy-chemicals-dopamine-serotonin-endorphins-oxytocin/

“Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins are the quartet responsible for your happiness. Many situations can trigger these neurotransmitters, but instead of being in the passenger seat, there are ways you can intentionally cause them to flow.

Being in a positive state has significant impact on your motivation, productivity, and wellbeing. Here are some simple ways to hack into your positive neurochemicals:

Dopamine

Dopamine motivates you to take action toward your goals and gives you a surge of reinforcing pleasure when achieving them. Procrastination, self-doubt, and lack of enthusiasm are linked with low levels of dopamine…

Break big goals down into little pieces. Rather than only allowing your brain to celebrate when you’ve hit the big finish line, you can create a series of little finish-lines for frequent dopamine release. And it’s crucial to actually celebrate—buy a bottle of wine, or head to your favorite restaurant whenever you meet a small goal…

Serotonin

Serotonin flows when you feel significant or important. Loneliness and depression are present when serotonin is absent…

Reflecting on your past achievements allows your brain to re-live the experience. Your brain has trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is imagined, so it produces serotonin in both cases. Gratitude practices are popular for this reason, they are reminders and mental pictures of all the good things you’ve experienced. If you need a serotonin boost during a stressful day, take a few moments to reflect on your past achievements and victories…

Oxytocin

The release of oxytocin creates intimacy, trust, and strengthens relationships. It’s released by men and women during orgasm, and by mothers during childbirth and breastfeeding… Oxytocin is the glue that binds together healthy relationships.

Often referred to as “the cuddle hormone,” a simple way to keep oxytocin flowing is to give someone a hug. Dr. Paul Zak explains that inter-personal touch not only raises oxytocin, but reduces cardiovascular stress and improves the immune system…

Endorphins

Endorphins are released in response to pain and stress, and helps to alleviate anxiety. The surging “second wind” and euphoric “runners high” when running are a result of endorphins. Similar to morphine, it acts as an analgesic and sedative, diminishing your perception of pain.

Along with exercise, laughter is one of the easiest ways to induce endorphin release…

Aromatherapies: the smell of vanilla and lavender has been linked with the production of endorphins. Studies have shown that dark chocolate and spicy foods will cause your brain to release endorphins.”

Loving the Darkness – New Moon in Scorpio 2017

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/11/16/new-moon-in-scorpio-2017

“If you’ve lived long enough, you’ve probably realized that life isn’t always “love and light,” that often, real healing requires not cleanliness or “good” thoughts, but boldly stepping into the dreaded darkness and facing some shit with a positive attitude… This New Moon is all about honesty, and when you’re honest with yourself and your real feelings and needs, authentic healing opportunities emerge. Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio (until Nov. of 2018) suggests rewards are waiting in the pit of hell…

The best advice for this New Moon: don’t just listen to your impulses. In fact, if you’re uncertain about what you should do, or what direction you should take, respond to reason, competent guidance, and intuition over any emotionally charged reaction. Ask people you trust to give you a more objective viewpoint.

This is likely to be an intense lunation, extending some moodiness or seething hostility into the collective vibes. It could also be incredibly sexy, passionate, and profound… Realize that whatever shows up, it’s okay. If it hurts, feel it. If you feel angry, get it out. Sit in your darkness and embrace that everything, even your worst fears, is still a part of your wholeness and deserving of love.”

NEW MOON in Scorpio – November 18, 2017

http://www.mysticmamma.com/new-moon-in-scorpio-november-18th-2017/

“Scorpio is intimate with the natural cycles of death, rebirth and transformation…

She reminds us of our innate ability to transmute poison, symbolized by the Scorpion, into wisdom symbolized by the Snake, so we can soar high like the Eagle and gain a broader vision of our Lives.

Like her fourth embodiment, the Phoenix, she reminds us of how time and time again, we rise from the ashes of our own transformation.”

HAPPY NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

http://www.thehoodwitch.com/blog/2017/11/18/happy-new-moon-in-scorpio

“The naked awareness of the dark goddess is to see the destruction and death of the old and joyfully embrace it as a sign of imminent renewal.”

Upgrading Your Mind

https://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2016/08/upgrading-your-mind/

“Think of your mind as a piece of technology that you own – a combination of hardware and software. This technology is powerful, but you can also improve upon its current functioning…

As we mature and learn to think consciously, we can wield greater control over our mental training and thus our mental performance. We can recognize and diagnose problems in our thinking. We can find better and stronger mental patterns and retrain our old ones. We can effectively become smarter and more capable by using our intelligence to upgrade our intelligence. 

If you’ve ever consciously captured a new skill, such as playing a musical instrument, figuring out how to use a new app, or learning to eat a different diet, then you’ve already experienced the benefits of mental upgrading. But have you considered how many other ways you could train your mind to gain abilities and increase performance? Have you tackled some of the most fundamental upgrades that could add tremendous richness to your life?

Let’s consider some of these foundation-level upgrades:

Sleep Mastery
Accelerated Learning
Turning Fear Into Confidence
Boosting Your Productivity
Making Good Decisions Efficiently
Turning Your Inner Critic Into an Inner Coach

The nice thing about mind hacking is that one change unlocks another, then another, and then another… Don’t settle for sluggish, defective mental software. Upgrading your mindware may not be as easy as upgrading an app on your computer, but it is doable.” ~Steve Pavlina

Neil Kramer : One Dream, Many Awakenings

http://neilkramer.com/one-dream-many-awakenings/

“[T]here are some obvious guidelines for all right-minded people regarding the rudiments of civil behavior: don’t do unpleasant things to people, don’t steal stuff, don’t lie – and having a messy consciousness, a closed heart and an underutilized intellect won’t help much either…  Be cool, be authentic. Act with composure and integrity and you won’t go far wrong. Just by resonating one’s own authenticity, the human mind sooner or later gravitates to the spiritual path…

There are no laws, there is only ultimate personal responsibility

The spiritual path is always and only a personal journey. It requires a purification of consciousness that actively positions self as a vessel for field connection with divine consciousness; tuning into what is true…

It is wonderfully encouraging to see what happens when we take risks to walk our own path. When we stick our necks out and go for what we know, the universe acknowledges and supports this. It can feel our presence. It can feel the divine algorithm inside us and naturally lends its momentum to us…

The universe often uses eloquent synchronicity to smooth the path and it is when this takes the shape of actual live, flesh & blood people, that this becomes particularly amazing. When very special parallel resonances line up, people can actually help each other on their paths. The intelligent coherent universe knows this and will place such people at key intersecting junctures so they can meet, share gnosis, support and inspire each other…

There is only one dream, but many awakenings within it. Seven billion paths. One for each of us. Whilst we are enmeshed in the hard light of mortality, each path leads nowhere. They are pathless paths and all without destination, by design. What counts is the freewill choice to walk our path – to be our authentic spiritual self – to acknowledge our divine uniqueness and see our own conscious life as the instrument for transformation and knowing. This is the gateway to remembering what we are and what is inside us.” ~Neil Kramer

FORECAST – NOVEMBER 2017 : TURNING THE SOIL

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

“When one has focused only on what is seen and shows up on the surface, what is beneath that surface becomes less and less fertile as time goes on. This month it is time to dig down deep and turn up what is underneath, bring it to the surface, inspect it, break it up, feed it, aerate it and fertilize it in preparation for new seeds.

This is what this month is all about…

One of the gifts of this time is the discovery of new passions and the rediscovery of old talents. As you turn up your past, your history, and your old dreams and inspirations, you may discover that you really do want to play music or write a book or be an artist or work with animals or children. It may be painful to look at and acknowledge the situations or reasons why you never followed through on those dreams. That’s the stuff under the ground that needs to be turned up, and your willingness, determination and discipline to do so is the shovel you will use.  Let those disappointments, judgments and regrets go.  Become neutral, practice forgiveness and then rekindle the passion and get some support in following through.

This could be a very exciting time for those of you who finally decide to follow your dreams… The challenges are going to be trusting the outcome, having the courage to make new choices, and staying out of blame. Inertia could set in when fear comes up around moving forward. Old wounds connected to regret and failure could surface, as well. Work through them, move forward and prepare your own “field” for a season of planting new seeds of old familiar dreams into freshly fertilized and upgraded soil…

It is a great month to rediscover what you truly desire and what you have a talent for. Be courageous and take a risk. The veil is thin between what is so and what can be, so take advantage of this somewhat unstable time to make your move.  Good mantra for the month is: “I can.“‘
