Creative Inspiration: Connecting to Source Energy Through Music

Creative Inspiration: Connecting to Source Energy Through Music

Do you make the time each day to be a channel to tap into your creative source? As a being which comes from some unlimited creative source, that infinite power is within you. We all express it in different ways: music, writing, or painting; but the vital key is connecting to the creative energy each and everyday.

About a week ago, I finally downloaded Spotify and began listening to the Hamilton Musical by Lin Manuel Miranda. To hear this story of Alexander Hamilton’s life through the lens of Miranda is one of truest expressions of creative source I have ever experienced. Talk about doing your work. This is a masterpiece of true Broadway proportions. Within the first lines, I was hooked. I have since been inspired to create on many different levels. I wrote a song the other day and was led to other works I had written in old journals. I even turned some poetic release into a beautifully flowing rap sonnet.

How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore
And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence impoverished,
In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?- Opening line of Hamilton

Since this work has come onto my “most played” list on Spotify I wanted to make a Creative Playlist for you all to get inspired. With perfectly placed music references from Biggie, Mobb Deep, Continue reading “Creative Inspiration: Connecting to Source Energy Through Music”

Why The Autumnal Equinox Is A Cosmic Energetic Hotspot!

Why The Autumnal Equinox Is A Cosmic Energetic Hotspot!

Friday September 22 (9:22) is the return of the Libra Sun. The Zodiac sign of Virgo is the star of this week with two planets entering its service-oriented landscape and one planet leaving it. Neptune is also big on this week’s radar because it’s scheduled to come under attack from two different directions. Venus kick off the show when it enters Virgo on Tuesday, September 19. Although Venus in Virgo is very down to Earth and sensible, this is because Virgo cares about useful and purposeful more than about being romantic. The other reason is that, because Venus in Virgo’s goal is perfection, this is a time when we can be critical, worrisome, and hard to please.  The upside is that Venus in Virgo makes us want to display a pure beauty with a perfect figure, so this is a good to hit the gym or get a facial. The Virgo New Moon on Wednesday, September 20, signals that the next two weeks are prime time for initiating a detox, making healthier life choices (energetically and physically), and creating a more satisfying work environment. On Friday, September 22, the Sun leaves Virgo and enters Libra.

This movement creates the third seasonal marker in the calendar year, the first day of Fall. Also referred to as the Autumnal Equinox, the first day of fall is one of two days a year when the hours of night and day are equal. Libra is the sign of the Scales, and this is a good day to take stock of your life to see if your personal scales are balanced. That might be harder than you think because changeable and hard to read Neptune is scheduled for two oppositions this week that could throw you off your game. The first comes on Tuesday, with an opposition to Mercury that creates a confusing brain-fog. Because Mercury-Neptune oppositions are known to be times when you miss important details, your best defense is to try to be as clear and honest as possible in all your communications. The other hit on Neptune comes from Mars on Sunday, September 24, and is just as tricky. The best part about this Mars-Neptune opposition is that it’s a one-off, but the flip side is that it acts like a mirror for deceptions and hidden agendas. One of the best ways to deal with this is to pay attention to the subliminal messages that you been sending to yourself via dreams or intuitions.*

☽︎→♏︎ Moon in Scorpio: Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto. Mars’ influence brings out strong passions and Pluto shows very strong desires. People often become aggressive, critical, impatient, and moody while Moon is in Scorpio. There is a marked increase of intensity and heightened sensitivity to personal offenses and insults.

Remember that Scorpio has a suspicious and secretive nature. Avoid social complications. Beware of jealousy and watch out for the Scorpion sting. Please remember to forgive and forget. Be cautious interacting with the opposite sex. However, this could be a good time for an intense merging with another on a deep emotional level!

Scorpio rules the generative system and the organs of reproduction as well as the lower spine (sacrum) in which the Kundalini energy is coiled. The Moon in Scorpio is a very bad time for surgical operations of any kind.

☽︎☌Jupiter Moon conjunct Jupiter: People are sympathetic and generous. There is concern with the social welfare. The conjunction brings good health and optimism. People might feel an inner need for change.

☽︎☍Uranus Moon opposite Uranus: Disruptions. Obsessions with the unusual and unconventional. Independence is so prominent that communicative contact with others is difficult. People are restless, irritable, and stubborn. We might be prone to accidents.

MercuryPluto (alternate)Mercury trine Pluto: Trine is the most harmonious aspect. In most cases, it joins planets in congenial signs of the same element. These energies combine with ease. The drawback is the lack of challenge-getting benefits without effort.

Mercury (Hermes in Greek Mythology) is known as the “Messenger of the Gods”. Mercury represents the mind- the link between spirit and matter, between soul and personality. Mercury symbolizes the power of communication and interpretation: intelligence, reasoning capacities, and the ability to perceive relationships and gather facts. Mercurial qualities include being adaptable, intellectual, attentive, perceptive, clever, versatile, inconsistent, hypocritical, argumentative, sarcastic, cynical, excitable, impressionable, nervous or prone to worry. Mercury narrates, talks argues, debates, writes, analyzes, memorizes, studies, travels, sells, reflects, and expresses itself through the hands as well as the tongue.

Mercury is of neither positive nor negative polarity-neither masculine nor feminine. Mercury rules all communications. It is associated with speaking and writing, educational capacities, and manual skills. Mercury is essentially active in the versatile, talkative sign of Gemini. Mercury’s nature is also strengthened in a analytical Virgo. Pure Mercurial expression becomes difficult in Sagittarius and in Pisces, which relate and communicate more through hopes and beliefs than through facts. The symbol for Mercury, Mercury, is the crescent, the circle and cross. It marks the receptivity of the soul through the exaltation of the spirit over matter.

Pluto can be considered the higher octave of Mars. It is named after the god of Hades. It was discovered in 1930 and although is not considered a planet now in 2017, the celestial pull still exists. Pluto represents those elements which have not yet been integrated into the collective consciousness. It has an eccentric orbit which crosses Neptune’s, making it closer to the Sun than Neptune. This last happened from January 1979 through March 1999, with Pluto at perihelion, the point of orbit closet to the Sun, in 1989. Also, while seven of the eight planets have orbits within 3°  of the ecliptic, Pluto has a very sharp tilt of 17° . Pluto’s unusual orbit shows that it is not yet in tune with the rest of our solar system. This also suggests Pluto might be a recent addition to our solar system or an ex-satellite of Neptune.

Pluto represents the urge to transform, to regenerate-bringing rebirth. It is a symbol of decay, contamination, infection, destruction, desire, obsession, disintegration, and elimination, but is also a symbol of a cleansing, healing catharsis.


☉→♎︎ Sun in Libra: Libra being positive and cardinal, is active and aggressive. However, Libra has been called the “iron hand in the velvet glove” because its aggressiveness is not usually obvious.  This mode of expression combines with the flowing communicative and intelligence of the air signs. Libra is like its complement, Aries, but now the “me first” energy is searching for balance. The glyph of Libra is symbolic of the setting Sun, expressing the balance between night and day, between self and others. While Libra is considered to have a positive polarity(yang), it is ruled by negative (yin) Venus, the receptive planet of charm and indecisive. They easily see the value of each point of view other because they do not hold a definite opinion of their own. In their search for balance, Libras strive to show both sides-sometimes for arguments sake only. Usually they are easygoing, diplomatic, idealistic, romantic, and have a very refined appearance. On the other hand, Libras can be gullible, frivolous, and flirtatious.

☽︎Sextile-symbol.svgVenusMoon sextile Venus: Generally similar to the conjunction, but more pronounced. Personalities mellow. Dispositions are pleasant. There is an increased interest in the arts.

Excerpt from Angel Numbers:

Number 922 is a combination of the energies and vibrations of number 9 and number 2, with number 2 appearing twice, magnifying its influences. Number 9 denotes endings and conclusions and relates to the Universal Spiritual Laws, a higher perspective and expansive viewpoint, strength of character, non-conformity, the concept of karma, leadership and leading life as a positive example for others, altruism, humanitarianism and lightworking. Number 2 is associated with balance, harmony, duality, peace, adaptability, service to others, diplomacy, receptivity and love, charm, understanding others, mediation and co-operation, consideration, faith and trust, your life purpose, support and encouragement.

Angel Number 922 brings a message from the angels that you are being supported and guided as it is now an important time of manifestation. Keep your thoughts on your highest spiritual goals and aspirations in order to manifest all that you require along your path. Maintain faith and trust in yourself and the Universal Energies as you fulfill your life mission and soul purpose.

Metaphysics: A Beginners Guide

Metaphysics: A Beginners Guide
Meta derives from the Greek meaning “beyond”, “upon” or “after”.
Psychics is the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy.

This means Metaphysics goes beyond science and what we know of the nature, energy, and matter.
The energy we can not see but feel. Do not simply shrug it off as hocus pocus because you have not opened up your mind and let your ego step aside to understand it.
There is a cosmic energy flow that you feel deep in your heart, that is a divine energy, a spiritual energy, A LIFE Force energy. Call it God, Jesus, Spirit, Universe, whatever…it is an energy.
We distinguish things in our minds before our heart even gets a chance to speak. We categorize and compare, which is led by the ego. The heart is the seat of your COSMIC FLOW. The universal gift each is given and must choose to act upon or remain at the will of the Ego. LET Go Of EGO!! When you do, you open yourself up to the wisdom that is buried deep inside your subconscious. The wisdom waiting to be remembered. Metaphysics enables you to take a closer look at your thoughts from sitting in the cosmic heart seat.

Being in Nature and specifically utilizing Crystal and Plant Spirits, added with having a mindful intention of gratitude every day, brings us closer to our ancestors way of life who could tap into an elusive magical knowing. It resided in their conscious and they understood and honored this.
 In our modern society, we have been stuffed into a box starting from the earliest age of how we “should” do, see, and feel things. PLEASE take this word out of your vocabulary! Especially when talking to your children. The only should in your life needs to be taking the time to be in nature a little bit every day.
The Plants and Crystal spirits were the first to inhabit the planet. Plant Spirits can teach us so much, working with psychedelic plant spirits has helped me see the world as a giant web. When one piece comes apart, the entire web can be diminished. We must stay connected and intertwined. Do Not let your ego separate you from someone because they don’t believe or even think the same way as you. The consciousness stored inside the plants and crystals has much to teach us if we simply listen.

Intentionally working with metaphysics and even taking the time to communicate with the other forms of consciousness on the world is vital to our species evolving. Some people say we are more disconnected than ever, but I don’t believe that. I believe that we are awakening more each day with the help of our crystal and plant spirit companions who have been here waiting for us to awaken to our full potential.
The blood, intention, and souls of those ancient beings still resides in our subconscious and the consciousness of the earth.
We must reconnect with our heart and let it speak before speaking straight out of the mind. Go Beyond what you feel and dig deeper into WHY you feel the way you feel. Examine your patterns and do everything with a positive intention.
Don’t shame someone else simply because they don’t live their life the way you think they “should.”
-The Stoned Housewife

We each have a unique path and if by some chance your soul is an all knowing cosmic being, wouldn’t you want to live beyond the properties of matter and energy?

Always remember:

How To: CRYSTAL GRIDS

How To: CRYSTAL GRIDS

 

A WALK THROUGH GUIDE ON HOW TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL CRYSTAL GRIDS

crystalgrid

Arranging crystals into a geometric formation activates the subtle and powerful energies which create a vortex of intention based healing. Begin by writing your intention down on a sheet of paper or pulling a tarot card for the theme of your grid.
What is your intention? What needs to be healed or released?
Select Crystals:
There is no specific perfect pattern you have to have, if you don’t own 45 crystal quartz points, do not worry. Grab the crystals that you feel called to use. Start by creating a center point such a selenite heart or geometric shaped crystal. This is the essence of your grid. You can also use a candle or goddess statue if you prefer. This is YOUR grid…make it your own.
Begin The Ritual:
Honoring each direction lay your crystals out in North. South, East, and West. I also like to represent the four elements as well. Before placing each crystal down, hold the crystal near your heart and say hello to its spirit (just as you would greet your beloved animal companion) and say thank you for the assistance. They will hold this in their consciousness as they want to connect with us.
floweroflife

The Flower of Life is a perfect map for your grid.

Grids are symmetric for even energy distribution. When you create intuitively and
acknowledge your stones, you create a a reflection of your intentions.
You are activating the ancient crystal healer in you whom worked with these spirits long before this incarnation.
Activation:
Take a pendulum, wand, Quartz point, or simply your finger if you wish, and begin and touch the center piece and from there touch the north crystal and touch back to the center, to the east crystal and back to the center and so on. You are creating a line of energy connecting to each crystal aligning and deepening your intention.Visualize this energy rising as a golden light above your grid. Circle round to the north point and stop in the center.
Once complete visualize your intention in whatever ritual you are about to perform. Even if it a simple meditation, set up a crystal grid to enhance the energy around your space.
Keep the grid up for as long as you like. If children or animals mess it up, the grid is no longer needed and you can put it away. Trust the consciousness in the crystals is also a part of the same consciousness within you. Be open to receiving whatever assistance they may or may not have to offer.

Healing Yourself: The Mental Causes of Physical Illness and the Way to Overcome Them

 

The Point of Power is Always In The Present Moment. – Louise Hay

Often we say, “That’s the way I am.” or “That’s the way it is”? What we subconsciously are saying is we “believe it to be true for us.” Life experiences definitely mirror our beliefs. In my first marriage I developed some unhealthy mental thought patterns, which resulted in me almost losing my life, and the life of my first son to the toxicity I had developed in my body. Nothing makes you snap out of unhealthy relationships with yourself and others when your life is on the line. How many warning signs do you need though?

From toothaches to UTI’s I have found relief and often times healed, yes healed,  many illnesses by using Louise Hays book Heal Your Body A-Z. Her introduction alone is powerful enough to at least get you to try it.
