February/March 2012 Heretical Numerology Watch


“I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health.  I said, ‘There’s nothing that I can do for you that you can’t do for yourself.’  He said, ‘Oh yes you can.  Just hold my hand.  I think that would help.’ So I sat with him a while then asked him how he felt.  He said, “I think I’m cured.’”
~ Conor Oberst

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin.
It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

~ Frederick Buechner

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business.
It is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability.
It is essential for human survival.”
~ Dalai Lama

“The dew of compassion is a tear.”
~ Lord Byron

Feb 27th, watch traffic and take your time getting to work and school.

Compassion is a word that is thrown around a lot, denied of it’s true nature and largely abused. It is easy to feel softly for that which we find comfortable. But can you shed tears for someone who believes in what you despise? Can you have true compassion for something that seems alien to you? Can you have compassion for those who rub you the wrong way?  And can you have compassion for the faces you cannot see?  Because if you cannot, we are doomed.

The burden of our modern age is to find our compassion for others in spite of the internet allowing us to not think of them as human, because there’s no face to interact with. In spite of charities, corporations and governments who tell us they will handle our giving for us, so we need not worry about it ourselves. In spite of politics that tell us that we are different from our brothers and can never be united and can never “both” be “right.” Compassion and Division do not harmonize. What messages from the mob do you receive? These are questions I ask and ponderings I pitch to you as we fully enter the 2012 cycle and year of the Dragon.

March – May….  This is the window to watch right now.  Starting in March we hit several pockets of highly intensified energies.  I expect to see what many will define as chaos.  However, this is a good wave to ride for clarity, vision and opportunities.  Read that as FOCUS, get your mitt ready and look for goodies to catch too.  Be ready to multi-task like never before.  Some very significant windows will fling open during this time, but these windows are also the short-lived kind.  There will be many.  Think of it like catching fire-flies.  There will be many, and catching them may take some focus and doing (and willingness to stumble and dance) but the little lights only come out for so long. You can also think of this like a game of pictionary.  Every puzzle is a challenge and an opportunity requiring communication for the win, but time is limited.  When a challenge heads your way, you want to tackle it and resolve it quickly.  Communicate clearly and without judgment.  Don’t over analyze and don’t blame.

This chaotic Mar-May feel also plays out physically and in the weather.  I still pick up rumblings of something important happening in southern CA. I think there will be more tornadoes, like we saw last year. I think it will snow somewhere at a time and/or place we consider unusual.  And I think by end of the year there will be a domestic incident/attempt in the US, but a significant window of opportunity is going to be during this Mar-May window of multiple windows.  There’s just an awful lot of intensified energies and energies that create challenges to juggle and jump through hoops with.  Expect to be challenged!  Right now is prep time, set the stage time, remember who you are time, research and listen time. This is slow time for a reason.  Come March, be ready to be flexible and act as things start hopping.  And don’t just duck the rocks that come your way, catch them!  April will intensify what March begins.  Communication is very key during this time.  Don’t avoid it, clarify and hone it!

Also… law making and policies are getting a stomping, especially come this fall.  If we were really following the Divine flow of this energy, we’d simplify, scrap some things and revamp others.  Since it seems unlikely, expect it to consequently hurt.  When we don’t flow, unintended consequences arise.  Don’t think it has to do with conspiracy of any particular group; it’s simply a matter of reap what you sow, on the grander, more complicated energy scale.  How we do things is shifting and this is pushing us.  How soon and how pleasant all this takes place is really up to us.  What will not help this shift is name calling and division.  I call on my friends not to participate in that.  I don’t care how annoying someone is or how much hurt you feel.  It’s your job to raise people up to your level, not stoop to anything lower.  It is also your job to listen and be open to ideas you have not considered before.  Consider your spheres of influence and make positive use of your influence.  Political parties and organized news are not where the Light is.  You are.

I’ve been recently asked about 11-11-2011. And it’s the 3rd time I’ve been interviewed by a newspaper about number patterns in dates.  Instead of spending time on this in the current newsletter, I encourage you to read my previous articles on the subject.  Yes, 11-11 is special every year, as is November.  No, this year does not mean what you think.

The Answer Is No

What Is The Significance of 9-29-2009

American Red Cross WWI Poster

The Greatest Mother

As we move into November, our nation’s month of Thanksgiving and Gratitude, the energies of the Divine Mother and Lady Justice become present with us.  Their images are expressed to me through memories of old paintings I remember seeing as a child at the local American Red Cross. My message is for the Enlightened. This is the way to channel this energy.  If not, negative and emotional this time can be.

Challenges arise at this time, especially around the Thanksgiving Holiday, but I stand by my notion that this may be the best time to spend with family all year.  The overriding theme at this time is a call to remain in the energy of gratitude, but also that of encouragement, mercy and forgiveness.

It is a time to count our blessings and to give up the swords of complaints and biting criticism.  It is a time to heal the wounded, encourage the old and nurture the children.  Find someone to give to.

What does the energy of The Divine Mother entail?

When you are sick, she looks after you.  When you are sad, she listens and lets you cry it out.  When you are hungry she feeds you, naked she clothes you.  And she is a graceful example to all.  She knows that you are the future.  And if anything is to change for the better, it all starts inside, right now and the difference we make even just for one other person.  Can you be a place of haven, rest or joy, for one person, even if only for a few moments?

If you have resentments, put them aside.  Save the caustic retorts.  The core of the Truth is we are siblings.  And we don’t have to be the same. Just because we do not believe the same, just because our religion or politics are different, does not mean either of us is any less deserving of compassion or our wounds salved.  It is not criminal to be different in philosophy any more than in skin color.  Stand up for what is right.  The Divine Mother does not ridicule.  But she will attend to your wounds caused by it.

As 2011 comes closer to its conclusion, this energetic cycle calls us to express compassion for others.  It also demands a balancing of justice.  Let not accusations fall that are undeserved.  Do not equate apples to snakes when oranges suffice.  Do not allow poisonous people or attitudes to fester in your life.  And when it comes to who you are, actively be that blessing to someone else.  Some way.  Some how.

Mother of Justice.  Mother of Mercy.  Mother of Love.

The traps?  Think of what is opposite of The Divine Mother? Of Lady Justice?  This Divine energy is not meant to foster apathy.  It does not neglect.  It does not stand by and allow another to be abused.  It nurtures positive emotions and salves the negative.  It does not take advantage and do emotional injury.  “Do No Harm.”  Others may fall to this level. See that you do not.  Stick to Gratitude and Encouragement this holiday.  And when challenges arise, because they will, soothe them.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”
~ Alan Cohen

Softly and kindly remind yourself, ‘I cannot own anything.’ It is a valuable thought to keep in mind as you struggle to improve your financial picture, worry about investments, and plan how to acquire more and more. It is a universal principle which you are part of. You must release everything when you truly awaken. Are you letting your life go by in frustration and worry over not having enough? If so, relax and remember that you only get what you have for a short period of time. When you awaken you will see the folly of being attached to anything.”
~ Wayne Dyer

“Joy is not the result of getting what you want; it is the way to get what you want. In the deepest sense, Joy is what you want…..  You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.”
~ Alan Cohen

“They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
~ Confucius (C. 551 – C. 479)

All of 2011 so far has been about responsibility, work, structure and laying foundations.  It’s been a period of preparation and even tension.  Coming full swing into the energy of October, we move into a cycle that pushes to a stage of evaluation and asks us for release. We come to a point asking us to let go, to make choices and to allow things to be different from here on out. 

If you need a boost for fresh ideas or how to see things differently, I recommend this article by Christopher Penn, where he discusses how powerful triggers can be to help us shift our emotional and mental states. “Simple Pleasures.”

Also check out “Freedom After Financial Crisis” by Tracy Vincent. An insightful article about processing change and loss.

I expect in many ways that the next 5 weeks will feel a bit more comfortable to most everyone.  The tension that has been in place should loosen in some areas, possibly break in others.  (Remember that slow energy build I’ve been talking about?) And as I mentioned before, I believe we’ll see the markets gain some predictability by the end of October.  Just remember, predictability is not the same as profitable.  I see this more as a lull period where things calm down a bit and allow people to catch their breaths, take a break and re-evaluate the important things in life and the next steps to take.  If the markets become a place where these potential tension breaks channel through, it might be a good time to look for deals. There’s energetic tension present, it will release or relax somewhere. Markets or not.

It’s important to note that sometimes during periods like this, we are presented with events that stimulate choice, release, re-evaluation and adaptability.  Sometimes it takes a smack on the head to help us realize we’re not moving and we are stagnant.  Sometimes it takes a flush to get things moving again.  The energy present during this time desires flow and movement much like water.  YOU choose where and how it should channel.  If you don’t, it will be chosen for you and you may not be as comfortable with it. 

It’s a good time to take a mini-vacation of some sort, if you can.  It’s a good time to make deposits in your bank of positive memories and experiences.   Remember that negative experiences borrow from our bank of positive experiences.  When the positive bank is drained, it’s like going into the red.  Make the efforts and choices necessary.  No matter how small, they all count. 

The energy at this time is very much about making choices and the nature of the fact that freedom is only attained via choice.  And without choice, no freedom or grace is possible.  Just as our guides cannot take away our free will and freedom to choose, likewise we cannot take away the choices of others either.  Only in a free society do we see the essences of the 9 Divine Archetypes as they were meant to exist.  Freedom and choice are inextricably linked.

Patterns I see at this time are interesting as I still see a window for events to take place on either or both the east and west coasts in the U.S.. Hurricane energy would fit these patterns, but even man-induced events are a possibility.  The energy is a slow build-up with a sustained punch.  I know we’re getting late into the hurricane season, but I see these as still being quite possible. 

Southern California, I’m not sure what’s going on with you, but you keeping popping up on my radar.  Folks who live there, please have a plan in place in case of emergency.  And listen to your hearts and guts.  This feels like a mix of natural events and man-induced amplification.  Not sure what that looks like yet?  I will be on the west coast soon where I hope I can tap in better and will try to update with a more clarified take later.  I don’t usually focus on areas I don’t live in.  Central Texas, I believe we’re in for a harder winter than usual for us.  Plan accordingly.

“First say to yourself what would you be;
and then do what you have to do.”

~ Epictetus (C. 55 – C. 135) Greek Stoic Philosopher

“Take charge of your thoughts.
You can do what you will with them.”

~ Plato (428-327 BC) – Greek Philosopher and Prose Writer

“They can do all because they think they can.”
~ Virgil (70-9 BC) – Roman Poet

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind
on things we desire not things we fear.”

~ Brian Tracy

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”
~ Mark Twain

At the time of this writing, Mercury is still retrograde and will go direct on August 26.  Themes during retrogrades are not only more reflective, but also more focused.  Too many folks go through life not really awake, or are too reliant upon last minute “by the skin of your teeth” living.  Retrogrades give increased focus on their areas of governance, which requires a greater sense of awareness as well.  Flying by the seat of your pants (we’re pretty bad about this in the US, not to mention the stress levels we try to pass off as normal life) doesn’t tend to work as well under the demand for focus during these times.  So-so output just doesn’t really cut it.  With Mercury governing money, communication and travel, these areas require more clarity, attention and focus during a retrograde.  Communication is very important at this time.  Even when you are aware though, you have all the sleepy-heads to watch for.  Your key to success is remaining balanced, eating right, sleeping right, staying focused and giving Mercury its due.  And moving into the next numerological window, this need for communication and facts becomes even greater.

Last month I mentioned that we’d have an opportunity to put things into order soon.  We enter that window between now and about mid-October. The energetic window that awaits brings into focus issues with boundaries, law, and order.  We had a swing at responsibility in August, and in September, it makes us look hard at what those responsibilities are.  Now is a time for clarity, revealing the realities as they are.  The is and is not.  When do you say no?  When do you say yes?  What deserves attention?  What does not?  What is your purpose in life?  What may feel nice, but isn’t your purpose in life?  Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you are supposed to.  On the other hand, there are things people can and should do that they fail to.  Like stand up for themselves, for someone else, or something that is right.  Sometimes during these types of energetic windows people focus on simplifying.  That is OK, but I do prefer the term clarify.  Clarify your purpose and direction right now and at least put together a thumbnail sketch of a road map to follow.  For most of us, our purpose is not for a simple life, but for one with a clear purpose.  Clarity is the key.

As the US gets comfortable with it’s new cycle, I expect health, community and family issues to take center stage come November/December.  And interestingly, this year the Thanksgiving holiday is more conducive to family gatherings than Christmas. (If you’re trying to decide which holiday to travel to see family for, my vote is Thanksgiving.)

There are some interesting patterns afoot.  The whole month of September tends to be more intensified due to it’s nine nature doubling each day’s vibration, however the 9th and 20th do stand out.  The thing I think is interesting… I’ve been watching http://spaceweather.com, and there are some interesting celestial “anomalies” that I thought I’d go ahead and mention.  Space Weather maintains a list of upcoming Earth-Asteroid encounters and it’s interesting to note that each one of note (highlighted in pink on their chart) comes closest to Earth during an arch of influence in numerology dates.  The most significant is actually classed a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (greater than 150 m in diameter and passing within .05 AU of our planet).  On Nov 8th, within an important numerology arch, asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass closer to the Earth than our own moon.  (For reference, our moon is 3474 km in diameter.)  If you’re curious, follow the link to space weather and click on the asteroids to watch the videos of the projected obits, etc..

Now, that  said – I find all this fascinating.  And I find that when astrological, celestial and numerological events collide, the intensity of the energy seems that much greater.  However, I’m not overly concerned about it.  Anymore than I am in a place of fear about the drought we’re having here in Texas.  My job is to love, not to be afraid.  And Mother Gaea is in need of her natural processes.  Our sun is increasing in activity. I think winter will be a different story.

For the next 6 weeks, I ask you to think about making plans, getting yourself organized and laying foundations.  Do this for work and career and do this for family.  September is the best month all year to get your act together for the holidays and pre-plan for 2012.  October is a good time to take a trip for fun, December a good time to take a trip for reflection.  But expect travel issues in December.  I think we’re in for quite a Winter 2011 in the US.  And September is a good time to plan for potential weather extremes and emergency scenarios as well.  Unusual weather is in the the future down the road and it’s better to think of needs now than not be prepared.  Besides, you know I’m a fan of being prepared not just for yourself, but so you can be a light to others.  You never know what kind of difference you might make for someone else.  Do you have a first aid kit?  Firewood? A disaster plan in case of a chemical spill?  A list of emergency phone numbers?  Do your kids know what to do?  These scenarios are often considered uncommon, but what has previously been considered uncommon is becoming more common place.  I’ve been analyzing the last 2000 years of dates and there is a large pattern that makes me want to encourage everyone to keep records and get first aid training.  Take an inventory and get an idea together of what you can and will do.

Feeling stuck?  I highly recommend an article by Mark McGuinness called: “5 Creative Coaching Techniques To Get Yourself Unstuck.”  Mark has not only a gift for writing, but for coaching as well.  And I love his “imagine yourself without a head” exercise.  Check it out.  He’s a good resource.

September is the 9th month of the year, and as such always holds a special vibration because 9 is the number that honors all other vibrations.  We feel each day’s vibrations more clearly in the month of September.  In the natural annual social progression in the US, it serves as the perfect “beginning of the year,” with its clearer messages and holiday season peeking around the corner.  No wonder our school years naturally start around September.  The weather may begin shifting to fall and the waning of the seasons during September, but as a society we seem to come alive with expectation.

The window we enter now asks us to place order into our lives, to focus, to organize, to plan.  As we begin turning to our fall schedules, planning for the future is important now.  Take the information you’ve gathered thus far this year and begin putting it into a working order.

Back in June I mentioned seeing some forces at work come this window beginning in August.  Not the short explosive bursts I saw back in April/May, but longer and more sustaining in effect.  The closer we draw, the more I feel this pull.  Again, I look to North Atlantic region and the east US coast, with the window appearing from about North Carolina on up.  It is a large energy pattern, which points to a natural event, but could manifest in something man-caused.  However, I also see disturbance on the west coast for mid to southern California.  I’m not sure what the trigger is.  Whether it’s weather or a natural disaster or frankly a ball game.  But something is coming to a head.

I also mentioned that by end of October I believe we’ll see some of the predictability in the markets and economy that everyone craves.  It’s important to note that though the chaotic flux will calm down, this predictability will likely remain with lower profits than many hope for.  If you’ll remember, I predicted previously that there would be those who will claim this year that the recession is over.  Lately on the news I’ve heard debate over whether we’ll have “another” recession or not, as if what we’ve been through ended some time ago.  It’s never been over.  It’s a larger pattern we are caught up in and it won’t be over for some time.  Either we get caught by the under current, or we ride the wave.  Everything is changing, nothing is going back to the way is was before.  I challenge you to think differently about everything, even your expectations.  Do not get caught in the boxes of “have to’s” either.  For instance, I have met so many people who are caught because they spent money to get a degree in a field that they now cannot find work in.  How can they possibly consider a completely different path now?  Wouldn’t it invalidate everything they’ve ever worked hard for?  Only if we allow ourselves to get trapped in that line of thinking.  That part of your life served its time.  The last millennium served a very important purpose.  Honor that.  But do not be trapped, do not be caught by that.  How many times have we wished in our lives to have a second chance?  Wished we could start over?  Wished we had more choices?  We asked for it – and it has been delivered!  Time does not matter to Spirit, why on earth would you allow yourself to be trapped by it now?  So what your age?  What are you really missing out on if you let go of that box?

I ask you to take inventory not just of your house, but of yourself at this time.  What are your skills, what it is that you are passionate about, but also, what is it that humanity really needs from you?  What is it that you are an expert of?  And do you have the means to pass that knowledge on?  Knowledge needs to be preserved while we go through rebirth.

Societal change is being forced to take place, right now.  NOTHING will ever be as it once was!  Make your plans now.

“In Thy Presence is Fullness of Joy.”
— Psalms 16:11

“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
She gives most who gives with Joy.”

— Mother Teresa

“Man loves because he is Love.  He seeks joy, for he is Joy.  He thirsts for God, for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba

“Where there is Joy, there is Creation.
Where there is no Joy, there is no Creation.  Know the Nature of Joy.”

— Upanishads (circa B.C. 800)

“The secret of Happiness is Freedom.  The secret of Freedom is Courage.”
— Thucydides, 460 – 395 B.C. (Greek Historian)

“There is no Fear in Love. But perfect Love casteth out Fear.”
— 1 John 4:18

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
— Ferdinand Foch

“What I know for sure is that you feel real Joy in direct proportion to how connected you are to Living your Truth.”
— Oprah Winfrey

“Rise Creator and Stand.  For upon you worlds rely.”  This message is loud in my head this morning as I wrap up today’s newsletter.

Abraham – Hicks has told us that “the only true measure of success is the amount of Joy we are feeling.”  Florence Scovel Shinn taught us that Success is a system in which Courage is an important element.  The Bible tells us that there is no Fear in Love and that perfect Love abolishes fear. Thucydides wrote that the secret to happiness is freedom, which also requires courage.  The Upanishads spoke of the eternal connection between Joy and Creation.

All of these teachings point to a marriage of qualities that come into focus at this time.  Courage (confidence) and responsibility coupled and balanced with creation and joy.  It is reminiscent of the complete energy of Great Creator herself.  Joy, Creation, Courage, Responsibility, Freedom, Confidence, Passion, Choice, Love.  They are all intertwined and are the essence of God.

It takes courage to step up and create.  Whether you are creating a dream, a vision, re-creating yourself.  Fear is not a part of this.  Humanity was not created from Fear.   Nothing we consider Divine was created from Fear.

“I’m too old.” “I don’t have the money.” “The economy isn’t conducive.” “I don’t have time.”  “I’m a mom.”  “I’m alone.”  “I can’t because of _____.”  None of these statements are made from a place of courage, confidence or creation or joy.  And none come from a state of Truth or Freedom.  Sadly these chains are not imposed by anyone except by oneself.  When will we learn that we are Creators?  It does not matter what we are given.  We will create with rocks and sticks.  We will summon unto us those who have the missing pieces we need.  We will draw from the energy of the Universe and express.  We have everything we need in our very Souls.  We are not trapped, unless we choose to be.   We are Creators!

I touched on the subject of thinking about what our true Joy is back in May.  You can go back and take a look.  Our process over the summer so far has been in preparation for the window we are moving into.  If we desire to be Joyful, then we must have the courage to take the step, and embrace a state of confidence and knowing, and simply Create.  Step into your I Am of CreatorStep into Freedom.  Step into Joy.  “Live Your Truth.”

Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde at least through August.  Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo on August 3 and Jupiter goes retrograde in Taurus on August 30.  These are not reasons to hold back.  In fact, I think these retrogrades will help facilitate the process.  Know that it requires of you more focus, and your full soul’s attention and passion.  This is the window to step forward in the process, to create, to reap, to be bold and unwavering in our dreams and desires.  To be joyful. To exist in a state of creation vs. created.  To exist in a state of Creator.

“Create your speech to one another in Love.”  Remember that God spoke and It Was.  Let your speech be clear and unwavering.

Take the steps, even if it does seem messy at first. We have a window coming later that will allow us to clean up the details and put everything into a sense of order.  But jump in, create the steps, stand and be confident, be counted as responsible now.  Be the first one to dare to get messy, and without fear, without worry about failing or “messing up.”  Check your attitudes at the door.  And don’t use “responsibility” as an excuse for “can’t.”  That’s not how this works.  This energy says you have a responsibility to Create!  That you are not responsible if you do not!  The energy of responsibility here is very wholesome and holistic in that it does a balancing act and takes into consideration details as well as end results.  It considers the health of all the corners of life, satisfying our needs in all arenas: emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and all the other “als.”  Contemplate what it actually means to be “Creator.”

This time is about reaping benefits through joy and creativity.  Not just for you, but for everyone you are responsible for.  And today, you are responsible for your community, your world.  Whatever that means in your life.  Your circle.  You have a responsibility to your peers, the people you interact with anywhere.  A responsibility to seed the energy in your life to facilitate it in others as well.  You have the responsibility to stand in confidence, be true to that core of who you really are, even if it means you take on leadership for awhile to do it, so others are supported in their own confident standing as well.  Who are you?  Step into Creator.  You are your own infinite Universe.  If you are the first to step up to the dais, you will soon be joined.  Do you see the network of Light?

The arch for the plateau jump has formed.  It is before us.

July 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


“Love taught me to die with dignity that I might come forth anew in splendor.
Born once of flesh, then again of fire, I was reborn a third time
to the sound of my name humming haikus in heaven’s mouth.”
— Aberjhani (The River of Winged Dreams) 

“If you live in the dark a long time and the sun comes out, you do not cross into it whistling.  There’s an initial uprush of relief at first, then-for me, anyway- a profound dislocation.  My old assumptions about how the world works are buried, yet my new ones aren’t yet operational.  There’s been a death of sorts, but without a few days in hell, no resurrection is possible.”
— Mary Karr (Lit: A Memoir)

“Things are only impossible until they’re not.”
— Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek Next Generation)

So where are we now in the energy mix?

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been in a “soft” transition, riding the outer waves of the hard transition coming up in July.  This hard transition is not the kind, however, that can be easily labeled.  The reason why is because it is spiritual in nature.  And essentially the energetic theme is that of “Rebirth.”  The mechanism is however different for everyone.

Expect this to play out in physical ways, but it’s essential to remember that whatever happens, it’s not about the physical.  It is about the spiritual, soul level growth.   It’s not just about growing, though some will be pushed to do so.  It is also about the kind of testing that is less about learning and more about confirmation, more about proof that you have finally arrived.

I’ll use a personal experience for an illustration. All throughout my teen and young adult years I had a recurring dream about being taunted by a particular person who caused me great emotional distress in real life.  In my dreams this person would suddenly show up when I was in public and shout mean things about my looks and how I’d never become anything.  I would struggle to run away and hide from their insults, and it never seemed to work right.  The dreams felt awful, and I knew they were about my self-confidence.  I worked on it though, in real life, pushing myself to step outside my comfort zone.  And the day finally arrived when I had the dream again, but this time I did not run.  I instead stood up to the offending person, told them off and told them why they were wrong.  In the beginning, the dream yet again felt awful and I wanted to avoid the person. But by the end, it became one of the most empowering dream experiences I’ve ever had.  Time and time again I was given opportunity to be my true self, but someone was always there to tell me why it was ugly or bad and I tried to hide.  Finally I stood without fear and with acceptance of who I was.  I woke up like a new person.  I had arrived.  I never dreamed about that person taunting me again and I was afraid to challenge my beliefs no more.

The energy now is somewhat like what that last dream was for me.  A final unpleasant test, but less for learning and more for confirmation. I had graduated.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ll have the challenge part too in this energy bubble, and it’s possible to fail the test, but the end goal is to finally get that certificate of arrival.  We won’t be done for the year just yet, but this summer holds a special spot for the thresholds we are all crossing.  Rebirth.

The interesting thing is, though I can see it in numbers, I’m not the only one talking about it.  A lot of people feel this internal need for something to change.  Sometimes they know exactly what, but a lot do not.  They can’t quite put their finger on it, but they know something needs to, is or going to shift.  Sometimes the clue comes from the fact that coping mechanisms they have relied on for some time are beginning to no longer work.  I read once there’s a reason why addicts usually end up in treatment, and it’s not just because they are addicts.  It’s because the body has an amazing ability to develop a tolerance and what used to work stops working. It’s not too different for anything in life, as everything points to the need for flow.  Everything could be good, but if it becomes stagnant, it becomes poison.

Sometimes figuring out what it is that needs transformation requires you to get away, remove yourself from the everyday, so you can finally get the sense of what is truly taking place.  Sometimes the best “get away” people can get in their life is to start a new job, or start a new hobby, or start running everyday, or something else that helps remove you from the current outlook and put you into a different pace.

Even now, people are looking for the answer to the nagging feeling of “what’s next.”  It’s time.

July holds some significant master number energy and not ironically, July 11 and 22 are pretty significant this month.  It just happens to be that each of these dates are double master number days in 2011.  On top of that, July 1st finishes out our triple eclipse pattern this summer and the US moves into a new annual cycle that expects community service and responsibility to our families and health.  The thing is, in 2011 this realm of service energy also contains a spiritual challenge.  And then Mercury will go retrograde on the heels of all this August 3.  There’s also Uranus going retrograde on July 9th, a date I have already pegged for a numerological date of significance.

We are being challenged during this year 2011, to be better about doing our research and not make decisions too quickly.  We are challenged to slow down and to seek greater truth on any matter, physical or spiritual.  We are challenged to find the missing details we don’t yet see. We are challenged to listen and to be careful with our questions. Every year contains a challenge vibration – in 2011 it involves this.

This challenge is a bit in opposition to the keynote energy of the US, which tends to make decisions on the spur of the moment.  There is a place for that energy, but this year asks us to slow it down.  As we transition during the summer, we also add a challenge to the energy of family, community, health and the notion of sacrifice.  I expect children, health care and community ideas, both secular and religious, to take a center focus in the near future and become increasingly important this fall.  The issue however will be to take measures to take a lot of time in these matters.  Number patterns point to hidden mysteries when it comes to these subjects.  Truths to be revealed, errors to be recognized and growth in understanding.  It’s not too different in nature to a spiritual awakening, when all you thought was true is well… different.  Not exactly wrong, but not the whole story and not exactly right either.  Some things completely wrong, but understandable at that level.  Still once you jump to the next plateau, it just no longer serves you.  Crawling works really well for us as long as we cannot yet walk.  But once we attain walking, we rarely find need to crawl again.  It no longer serves us.  Still, in order to finally get to that place of walking with confidence, we must first take some falls.  We must first, as Mary Karr points out in the quote above, “go through hell.”

We are reaching one of these points now.  It is like the transition of the butterfly from a caterpillar.  Did you know that when a caterpillar changes, it actually dissolves completely before it can reform into a butterfly?  Science calls it’s dissolved slurry state a “culture medium” not too unlike a liquid bath of embryonic cells.  This transformation is significant as none of the original structure of the caterpillar remains.  It is broken down into base liquid parts and completely reformed anew.  You can read more about this fascinating phenomenon here: “Inside the Chrysalis” by Dr. Lincoln Brower.

That – is where we are.  Entering the slurry stage.  It’s not a bad thing.  It’s not really an easy thing either.  Even birth is not easy.  But there is wonder on the other side.
