Getting Into Our 888 Vibe for April 2021.

To help navigate and cultivate our way through April 2021 Vibes, the picture on the left includes 3 crystals for a 888 Meditation Moment. Tiger Eye, Chrysocolla and Labradorite. If you find yourself a little out of sorts, tired, confused or feeling like your out of luck, this photo is a visual aid. Start with 3 deep breaths, fully expand your lungs, letting your mind slow down its cycles. No need to stop thoughts, slow them. If your able, find a quiet spot to do this. If your in a busy space, pop on your head phones and listen to some nature sounds or classical music. For me at the moment, Yo Yo Ma playing Bach, is a go to.
Back to deep breaths. Breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth, slows thoughts and aligns body rhythms. This sync aids immunity, clarity, heart health and centres the soul with an element of comfort in the body physical. A full cycle is a full inhalation with a pause, then a full exhalation with another pause, in 3 rounds.

In this 888 Meditation Moment we are understanding through active listening, active feeling and active attunement. A reconciliation within. A comprehension of self in the moment. A perception shift to include intuitive information. Comprehension. Keep in mind this may mean, that you see differences in what is said, the current working definition or belief and what you feel is happening.
When in this space, it is important to keep a calm bearing. Deep breathing continually supports calm. As you view a wider scope of awareness, know it’s beneficial. The information is to aid comprehension with clarity and calm to support pro active responses.

In using these 3 crystals in your space, on your body or as an image you are supporting the following:

Tiger Eye – the brown wand in the image.
A confidence boosting stone, that helps to illuminate and strengthen our mood and mental scope.
Supporting manifesting tiger eye also assists with money. A good thought to start with is; how can I balance my finances leading to current and future stability and growth? Write down your thoughts after the meditation is complete. For now, just let thoughts ebb and flow.

Chrysocolla – the blue with green inclusions in the top, underneath of the image.
Letting insight happen and flow, is part of this stones beauty. Aiding honest communications and strength. This is a tool for cycles, flow and the reconnection of heart and words. Calling in calm cleansing with wisdom for inner journeying.

Labradorite – the multi coloured lavender stone with black inclusions, bottom underneath of the image.
A personal favourite, this is a stone for joy, creation and vitality. Aiding spirit in natural rhythms and cycles, recognition of magic and a connection to it. Helping us to move between states as well as in and out of differing environments. Releasing judgement to allow focus to flow to a state of you doing you. A bearing of magical protection comes with labradorite. Part of centring self in meditation is to include self respect by seeking protection in alignment with universal vibrations. Overall this will uplift; immunity, clarity, attunement, active resonance with listening, thinking and doing.

If your looking for a mantra to include or recite try the following:
AS ILLUMINATION DAWNS IN MY INNER VISION, I ASK FOR PROTECTION, CLARITY AND CREATIVITY FOR POSITIVE EXPRESSION TO ALIGN AND CONNECT MY INNER PEACE, WELL BEING AND PROSPERITY.
I AM APPRECIATIVE OF HOW THIS TRANSCENDS.

Interested in including general Feng Shui, you can place these crystals on an alter, a desk or the family spot where everyone eats. This doesn’t have to be a formal dinner set up, it can be the coffee table in the room where you all sit and watch TV, if that is where you usually eat. For a business in general terms top left corner of your desk or the reception desk. Out of sight from clients if you have a traditional reception desk with a wall of some sort. It will work just the same, with a primary intention of being for those working in the space ahead of visitors. Be clear about your intention when you place it, meaning have a clear and simple thought or statement in mind. You can use the affirmation above in capitals if your a little unclear. Once you find a spot, does it look and feel right for the intention? If so wonderful, if not adjust and do another sense check.

April energies bring with them the recognition that normal is changed. In this change we shift out of following, the societal myth. This is the myth or story we follow as a group to function as a society. In light of this we begin our sense check. What we believe, how we express this and how we relate to each other. Boundaries will move and we may feel like the sure footing of the past has evaporated. While change can be confronting, it also serves. Transitioning from out of date to a reinterpreted or freshly created modern includes phases of illumination. An ebb and flow of seeing what is not working, to address why and to redefine our how in moving forward. Calm and critical thinking in combination with an intuitive response supports healthy and positive outcomes for everyone. We are all here and all need to be included.

How we relate is a major part of this universal shift in consciousness. Relation to our inner selves in terms of dialogue, kindness and healing create a healthy transition to external expression and the relationships this connects. The old perceived boundaries of us and them are moving. As are family, neighbourhood and community at large. Culturally we see the implications in every news cycle. In settling into a calm and clear bearing internally and peacefully through meditation, we organically grow our understanding and connection to universal flow. Ease comes with every breath and peaceful action creates positive change. In knowing our inner, shadow selves we understand balance and see actions of those who are un-healed. If you wish to create a future of thriving and care, meditation is a beautifully nurturing and intrinsic step.

Start with self and overflow to others, in love.

888 – 2021 Outlook Year of the Ox.

 

Welcome and Happy Lunar New Year 2021, our year of the Metal Ox.
This year starting on February 12.

Auspicious.
Aspects – North, South.
Numbers – 1,4.
Colours – white, yellow, green.
Flowers – peach blossom, tulip.

Inauspicious.
Aspects – South West.
Numbers – 5,6.
Colours – blue.

 

Characteristics of Ox include; strength, determination,  diligent, honesty, loyalty, ideals, ambition, conservative, patient, steady progress, positive work ethic, educated, consistent, detailed, strategic, vitality. Characteristics they may need to work on include; weak communications, stubborn, insistence, tradition before adaption.

Family and work are primary areas to address in 2021. Utilising consistent effort Ox’s have great patience and a desire for progress. They persist with doing things in line with their ideals and capabilities. Ox’s are detailed and strategic, with the ability to put their strength behind progression toward outcomes. While this can be beneficial it can become stuck when new ways are evolving. Creating situations that ask for evolving communications.

April and November will be challenging months for Ox. With July and September being luckier.

The Ox heralds movement combining the will of tradition as primary. In contrast with the weight of baggage pulled behind. Meaning because you may be able to pull a heavy load, this does not mean you are supposed to, nor should you. As we look at family, loyalty and definitions of success, the time has come to address cost, well rounded outcomes and resistance to evolve. This year brings in energies that put us in the position of addressing our feelings to illuminate what has been ignored. As well as what is adverse for those involved and how tradition fails in remaining the same ongoing. What works from its origins deep in the past, may not serve a modern context.

Let’s do a quick summary for each of the areas of life for 2021.

Family, starting here as this is of particular focus for Ox. It is wise to remember this year that our success lies in navigating through; not demand for what has always been. Tradition serves only when it is timely. As we moved forward into our age of Aquarius, tradition is highlighted in needing to be of service in a modern context. After all this is how tradition came to be. Being present with family creates opportunities of healing, updated context and a renewed emotional connection. Transitioning from demanding fulfilment of familial legacy to an open ended dialogue. Although at times uncomfortable, even clunky, with consistent effort can lead us to a deeper connection, timely comprehension and a stronger unit for all members.

In terms of socialising, starting with family to create a more stable centre can overflow to social connections. Taking the time to decipher where and when to be social is primary for ongoing health, stability in stamina and pace, as well as presence especially in areas of social justice. This includes hot topics of race, sex and socioeconomic influences. Communicating with your wider community will incorporate a new approach to replace stand and deliver tactics for getting to know one another. Calling on us to actively listen, address our own beliefs with a view to growth and to continue talking to educate ourselves and those in our communities. This is with a world wide view as interactions are now playing in a global system.

In terms of health and socialising, discrepancies continue to be highlighted, with a renewed view on our global home and the necessity for a mantra of being healthy for all. Due diligence is a highlight for 2021 in all areas, however I add it under social aspects to remind us it is always a good idea to ask questions, seek out true information and weigh your options for the desired outcome. Especially in health.

Our health aspect connects with abundance in 2021. Hence socioeconomics of health are part of the play through. Health is our first wealth. Supporting us to a new view of social traditions and systems. Asking the question how do we have a more rounded approach in creating true healing. Stepping us into, healing of deep wounds, with both communities and individuals. As mentioned previously stamina is an issue.

Proper rest and self recognition relates to health in light of the following;

Do address your social meter in terms of health?

Do you spend time in places that invigorate and help to maintain your immune system?

Do you support and actively influence culture with health in mind?

Do you act from kindness and compassion in terms of what you require with your specific personality? Including how this relates to and influences others.

We are currently building bridges to releasing arrogance, unhealthy ego, narcissism and changing the view of the shadow self from negative to a positive aspect in a truer understanding of what shadow is and how when utilised as a knowledge base, is of great service. A vital aspect to balance in our health for body, mind and spirit.

Emotionally, this supports balance in large numbers for mental health, adding to creativity, opportunity and our belief in having a future, as well as stability. This is where steady progress is fortifying and allows new habits and perspectives to flourish through regular engagement free of the negative connotations of discipline. Opening a more vital approach to how we relate internally, for a healthier external expression. Leading to manifesting for ourselves and relating to others, in support, releasing out of date emotional pedestals that hinder true understanding and challenge to our systemic and cultural  definitions of tradition. This provides opportunities for courage in regular sense checking and tweaking behaviour as you go. Aiding to improve connections, with self and those in our care.

Emotional integrity finds a new sense of self as in large numbers we see the in real time benefits. In turn helping us to recognise what is not healthy and a quicker uptake in releasing it.

Work wise 2021 can have ongoing energetic elements of being hectic, calling on lots of brain power to problem solve, due diligence – be sure to check your work, technological influences creating major dynamic shifts through industry, work force utilisation and culture. To be on the front foot is to continue education, be it new systems and platforms, formal education programs or group discussion aimed at openly raising what is not working and workshopping to find solutions. Patience in trial and error can be a positive add in when you comprehend there is no right or wrong, merely learning.

Hierarchy and authority will go through several phases of movement throughout the year. Hence stamina and health self care are important. If you are in an authority position it is wise to understand your personal why. Coming from this space to address calls of integrity and responsibility to multiple sectors of communities will help you find the words and actions that are well received.

Finance is a major focus as a pinch point in terms of hierarchy, platforms and true cost to planet and beings. Sustainability takes on a stronger focus not only for environment but also for us in maintaining the demand of greed. Unrealistic demands and expectations will be put under a different and deeper scope, a linking of historic building and bridging culminating in current systems. As the long term influences of these systems are more accessible and documented. The phrase, their own words comes to mind as the power of what we speak either haunts or helps. Be aware of what you are willing to do and say in name of greed under the guise of success.

This is why integrity comes into focus with a modern interpretation enacted throughout years end and into 2022 end of financial year implications. The global movement of workforces the cut and run end of contracting changes in favour of localisation and a grounded definition. Not all multigenerational plans land as expected, with more than anticipated being illuminated. As more people bear the true cost, the voracity of peoples blatant opinions has hard outcomes as we all declare and work through our conditioning around value and worth as well as what we want, what we need and desire to thrive. These blatant declarations can be the launching pad for education and evolution for redesigning all our futures.

Spiritually speaking, Ox energies highlight temperance. What we feed upon to nourish ourselves and the inherent value of all beings in line with what we all actually need to survive and then thrive. True thriving comes when we are connected, committed and willing to actively listen to our inner calling. This calling educates our soul selves about direction. Creating mandates that are harming to ourselves or others, is destruction. Not survival to thrive. History and the systemisation of our beings brought into open forums for more than one opinion and resonance, cycles in and out through the year. Individually it is wise to continue devotional practices. Communing with nature, kindness and growth are key components to focus on in prayer or meditation. Draw on stillness and quiet time for strength. Create calm space within to overflow in service of our wider community. Including nature and allowing the wildness in us to have freedom of breath, supports navigating through the cycles that challenge us to grow, with as much ease and grace as possible.

In summary, micro steps are progression. Keep your learner mindset on for your active listening. Allow self and others dignity, especially in making decisions. Cultivate awareness of traditional benefits and hinderances. Utilise the mantra of ‘works for all’ aligned with transparent simplicity to put out fires and to create good, positive, healthy, widely defined options and solutions.

Safe passage and wishing you a healthy, wealthy and wise 2021.

 

 

 

 

Sun Moon Stars

I’m so grateful we made it. Our 2020, in its spectrum of ludicrous to loving is both overwhelming while raising relevancy in our relations to each other and our home.

Finding myself having had both positive and negative aspects of rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience, this year has been made do-able because I engage in my daily practice. When a daily practice is created and developed, it astounds in how its perfection is beautifully humbling. My path leads to a point of removing the last petals of rose coloured glasses. In turn highlighting much of my list above and thankfully leaning into more positive outcomes. If you need, in a ratio of 3:1.

On our path teachings and depth, remind of the benefit of learning as an ongoing component in life. Respecting tradition, ongoing learning supports a highlight to new understanding and its ability to serve the present moment. A daily practice within our selves or our spaces, en-lightens. If you consider this as a lightening within you may find yourself on the inside of feeling connected. These practices, Feng Shui, Astrology, Geobiology, Yoga and Meditation are traditions aiding development in enlightenment, with great success.

Success can come in the forms of; rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience. I hope for your release of 2020, you find more of these, peace and much love.

Safe passage.

888 Photo Series 2020 – Playing with Phi

The heat is kicking in here. Australia bakes in the warm months, letting you see the radiant heat. In cooling off as I stepped inside, I decided to take the next few shots in my 888 Photo Series 2020. It’s called Playing with Phi.

In Feng Shui and Geobiology we map the pathways of energy and their influence as we interact with each other and within our spaces. These maps are maths based. In this maths there are auspicious numbers. Phi is considered here in its ratio, addressing auspicious balance, light, symmetry and precise lines with intention.

I have been incorporating patterns, grids and Feng Shui principles into my art for a long time. It started with collages, different in context but the same principle as these shots. A reference of the golden ratio.

In these shots I am thinking about kindness.

Safe passage.

Restoration:Action

When we are engaged in self care it is important to recognise what activities we consider as self care. For example, having a shower is a part of regular routines but may not fully classify as self care for restoration and healing. If you add some salt and rosemary or eucalyptus to work with the steam, take a longer time and consciously recognise you want to self care and in which light; then this adds another dimension of efficacy. Taking it to a deeper space within adds to your vitality, ability to critically assess and communicate.

This communication aspect works with our inner dialogue as well as with others. Filling your fuel tank, and creating a reserve, then to overflow for others. How would this add to your ability to function, recover, engage at work or home?

Having a boundary of recognition will aid the depth of your self care. Meaning it will do more for your soul, body and mind. When we address the soul for restoration, it serves to work in a space of your feelings. Especially if you are doing this on your own, with no support system. Over time with practise our resilience and comprehension see the benefit. Simple rules are always good, be kind, do small activities if you are beginning or overcoming trauma, have some silence before and after said activity. Keep it gentle.

Overall look for the ratio of restoration : action.
Does your activity create restoration without exertion? Feelings of peace, calm and clarity should be part of your bearing afterwards. Below are some simple options that can add to your self care working better.

888 Self Care Tips:
1. No matter what is taking your fuel, make time to self care. Even 5-10 minutes of silence, no screens and sitting to actively calm yourself will add to your restoration.
2. Utilise what you have. Without exertion can include, not spending; doing activities where you are; not needing you to find energy you don’t feel you have, to do an activity.
3. Be tender with yourself. This can look like, sitting in the waterfall of the shower; waking up and laying in bed stilling anxiety, then rising; drinking water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning; or sleeping nude, aiding the body to repair and have proper rest.
4. Over a few activities, measure how restored you feel.
5. Recognise what chews through your positive energy. Address these in your self care activities. A good cry, intermittent fasting, dietary alterations and releasing activities that leave you in a negative bearing will all support positive energy levels.

Safe Passage.
