Spiritual facilitation, be it through astrology, cards, reiki, etc. can be awesome. But it cannot, nor should it – give you the ´whole´ story.
The are so many multifaceted, mysterious journeys and layers in our return Home to Spirit – Source – Formless Consciousness.
And quite a lot of that is veiled.
And that is a good thing.
If we knew exactly where we were going, and how we got there, and what we would find – why even do it?
Mystery, curiosity – and uncertainty is what makes this journey rich, purposeful and meaningful. (In my book, at least)
Where astrology can help, especially when you´re in a phase which seems to be all about – surrender, let go, where is this going, i´m floating about, etc. –
is to help you with a sense of timing
is to identify some of the root causes or issues that need addressing
and, depending on facilitator,
is to shift your awareness so you are better prepared to face the veil of Maya when that time arrives
What you do then, what is revealed to you – is entirely between you and Spirit.
This is the message I´ve been seeing repeated over and over again in my sessions and re-inforces my sense of what´s coming ahead.
🙂 Sometimes a human guide / facilitator is what you need – sometimes just to give you a sense of time or to point you in a certain direction –
But there is such a thing as too much facilitation – guidance – direction – and external input.
In the same way too many cooks spoil the broth, too many voices of direction and guidance just end up confusing the spiritual seeker even more.
And that tends to overwhelm the more secretive, silent process of communion between Spirit and the Deeper Source.
How can Spirit fill your cup when the time comes when it is already full of (even the best) human interpretations and predictions?
Empty it out. And let Spirit answer the call.
We tend to want to know, to find answers and – Certainty – because of the way the human-monkey-mind operates. It wants knowledge to control the uncontrollable. And it wants to get to the top of the mountain, as soon as possible! With sparks and fireworks and epic music!
Which then makes the process of Surrender irrelevant.
You could say it also takes out the Beauty and the Mystery of the Journey in Search of Spirit. And the Sacred Silence that so often precedes such deep communion.
Think about the process as one of birthing or new creation – whether it´s a seed in the soil, or a new life in the womb, or a cake in the oven – it takes the time it will take.
So in some cases, you will just have to wait. And things will be better for the waiting. No matter the outcome.
If you´re looking for Spirit, that´s the way it tends to go. The moment you put conditions on that experience … it becomes a different sort of search.
It´s different a experience for each person, and each chart – but has a universal relevance owing to the South Node´s motion through Pisces in a time of multiple retrogrades.
This is why there will be no sessions offered in May, at least till the Retrograde ends.
I´d rather give you time to think, reflect and find your own answers and paths.
As really, there is such a thing as over-facilitation.
Knowing when to stop and let a person´s natural process be is just as important as having great guidance to give.
When you rush into things, sometimes you get activated too quickly. You end up having to take the route to the mountaintop that leaves you a little more bruised than you would be – if you had waited.
Not always the case for everyone, but for a vast majority.
And some people are more easily activated than others. If doing high energy work, make sure your facilitator takes this into account as well.
And check to see whatever practice you´re getting into is one that you can handle right now ! 🙂
It´s really, really not a race … Certainly not one that can be measured in linear time.
Learning to back away from over-activation is – a different form of self-love and self-nurture ….
My suggestions to you, especially over the next few weeks:
Find a tree you like – hug it and sit under it often. (Trees hug you back too … ya know 😉 )
Or find a space or place that takes you to that no-mind space.
Or just unplug and chill. Things will come in their own time.
Work with the lepidolite gemstone if facing high degrees of anxiety, worry, stress and fear.
You can hold this in your hand, or place it under a pillow, or in meditation, salt baths, etc. Remember to cleanse the stone regularly.
Regular salt soaks for the feet with essential oils (lavender is lovely) also help.
Get out of your head and do something. Have fun. The Sun´s in Taurus.
Feed your body with sensation and let yourselves play. Dance, sing, try out arts and crafts. Whatever floats your boat.
No one said you couldn´t 😉 As long you´re not trying to escape from yourself in the process 😀
In this particular case / energy signature…
Answers will come, especially when you are not in search of them. Give them the chance to come to you when it the time is right.
That´s part of the Beauty and Paradox of Pisces 🙂 and the journey it beckons us to take at this time.
Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all 😀
