Partial Solar Eclipse & New Moon

We are a week into the 2019 year and already getting to set some new-energies-intentions with this new moon – partial solar eclipse. The first of a few eclipses this year (Lunar too).

I mean, one can set intentions at any time but doing it for the year, with the intensity of an eclipse, is even better. 2019 is bringing us a new level of expansion with creative energy. Let’s put some jam on that bread!

I am not a new year resolution type of person. Not really. I make (or set) new intentions/goal setting throughout the year so I was never really into the January 1st thing. I do set a couple of goal, ideas, concepts for the year… but I feel they are more moldable and flexible than a ‘resolution’.

To me, the meaning of resolution is like a vow or a firm commitment. It just sounds too form-fitting to me and maybe that’s why I don’t really make them. I like to let goals and intentions have fluidity; to change and adapt if need be. The core of it sticks around but in its totality … never set in stone.

Maybe that’s why resolutions ‘fail’ for so many. It’s too strict. It’s too… old energy. We don’t need this kind-of ‘ruler slapping the hand’ mentality anymore. If the struggle is real, don’t bail and give up on it. Change it and work with it. Come at it at a different angle or perspective. There’s ways to get your goal achieved – you have to be open to let it shift around a bit for you – to eventually get you there.

I’ve learned how to be relaxed about some of my goals. Goals are intention setting – and when you ask the Universe for guidance to get you there; it might take more time than you thought, it might be a winding road. Depending on how grandiose the goal might be; remind yourself: there’s a lot of moving pieces and parts that need to come together at the right time and right place.

With this particular partial solar eclipse, and new moon, I will be doing my ‘seed planting’ thing for this amazing year we are now in. I will be setting some intentions for the year that are not only ‘goals intended’ but they will also be open to interpretation (to the Universe). Because sometimes when you think you want ‘this’ the Universe might give you ‘that’ – and it is up to you to do ‘something’ with it. That’s the flexibility I allow. I am open to receive.

I like that it’s a 3 year. 2+0+1+9 = 1+2 = 3! I love this number. It’s also my life path number (Numerology). It’s a creative, imaginative, expressive and joyful number. I feel a resonance with this year and that it will be a productive/creative one. I’ll set my intentions for it to be so!

12-6 New Moon

I am spending this earlier part of December trying to finish up and complete a few projects.

I have quite a few projects that are not anywhere near being completed. They are the slow-going-can’t-rush-projects. I have accumulated a few little projects along the way with the big ones. So, my intention is to finish up what I can – clean up all the little ‘messes’. They have piled up around my art room; have been stuffed in cabinets and drawers; some are just sitting in plain sight hoping that I will work on them next! 🙂 I have told myself to get all these smaller things done/finished and completed so that they can be cleared out and thus, open space (in more ways than one).

Doing this will really un-load some of the ‘burden’ or lighten the load I have seem to have put on myself.

I am great at starting projects! I love the starting – the getting going… but somewhere around the ¾ mark – I fizzle out, I get bored of it and am looking for something new to do/start. I am a procrastinator that gets fired-up. I don’t even know if that’s a ‘thing’ – but it’s kind of my pattern. It’s stop and go, for sure. Before I know it – I can get overwhelmed with everything that is started and that needs finishing. I find myself not really knowing which one-thing I should work on next, or… more often than not, the inspiration and creative free-flow of where/what to gravitate towards. This can put me right back at procrastination. I walk away from all of it. Until inspiration/’the fire’ hits me again; then I will go dabble on one of my projects. It’s a viscous cycle and I know I am not the only one who suffers from this … this happens to a lot of people.

Self-inflicted overwhelm causes procrastination. (Title of an article? Could be.) But when the inspiration hits – we are/I am on fire! The creative-juices are just flowing out… then will come the eventual fizzle out. Boredom. Then a need for a new project! It’s not A.D.D., although it has the same tendencies; it’s a block, programming, maybe some worthiness issues, and I think there’s a little bit of self-doubt in the mix too.

This is the pattern of my life. I have decided that maybe with this new moon of December (for my ‘zone’ – on the 6th) – this last new moon of this year – I should close some things up in preparation for the new. It’s a great time for completion! Just getting the little things done feels great! Its baby steps and taking little chunks-out of the bigger piece. It’s not a huge grandiose movement or moment – but it counts. All the baby steps count! 🙂

As each smaller thing is completed, the momentum gets going. It feels good and it also feels inspiring. All this finishing up and making space coincides with the upcoming full moon of this month. It’s a really nice energy going on right now. There’s a working with and a balancing of the masculine and feminine energies. It’s very yin and yang. 🙂 It’s not just about the creative projects. There are other areas in my life that this is true for. It’s an all-around momentum-going kind of energy that is affecting other things too. The feel-good vibe!

My December is feeling busy in a good way. It’s also another month of out with the old so I can bring in the new (I have had a lot of these months! I’m pretty sure this entire year has had this cycle going on). This month really brings on the push though. There’s that feeling of wanting to start the New Year a little lighter. Getting things completed. I look at some of the things around me and call them out: ‘old energy’… good-bye.

I love that I am starting to recognize them when I see them; where before I just let it all pile up around me. I didn’t know I was hindering myself, blocking myself, and suffocating my creativity. Even when I DID know that, but held on anyway, I was just adding to my misery (self-infliction). I held onto things/projects thinking that I will get back to it. After a few years… I don’t know if I will ever get back to it. I am still learning to give myself permission to let it go and there is always a perfect time to do that. And I remain open to know when that time is. (Usually ‘Divine-timing’… am-I-right?!)

I am still in learning mode. The recognizing mode. It takes practice. When you are someone, like me, who grew up surrounded by (parental) ‘hording’ and ‘holding onto’ – to fill voids, to keep you avoiding your-self (your true-soul-self), to mask whatever needs to be masked… and blah blah blah; this re-learning/re-programming doesn’t happen overnight. I have only recently, these last few years, really started going deep within my own ego, my childhood, to start resolving issues, programming, negativity, worthiness, and trust. I have been working on letting go and clearing… constantly!

This is just another area, another layer to the onion that needs to be peeled. The creativity (and creation) aspect of myself seems to be one of my toughest self-exploration areas. It’s where I was the most emotionally scarred and/or have the deepest worthiness wounds. So much childhood emotional trauma here. So, I cut myself some slack.

If I can get one (of the many) project(s) done and outta-here, I am super-happy! To finally come to the realization that I don’t need my rock tumbler anymore… that’s a big step for me. I have held onto that thing for way too long. *I might need it though; one day. No, I really don’t see it.* And if I really, really get back into rock tumbling – I can get a new one! Yes, people, the struggle is real! 🙂

So, along with some completion – and the removal of an old rock tumbler, I look forward to all the exciting new-ness that’s coming next year! I feel it in my heart, the joy is there: the new projects that will be coming my way, new activities, things (truly needed), adventures, knowledge/learning and the New Year – in general. The momentum is going to keep rolling through.

It brings a smile to my face!

Enjoy this last Master 11 (year) New Moon!
Love to all!

8:8 and 11:11

I have only recently, in about the last 3-4 years (this is my 4th year of consciously enjoying this portal day), been truly aware of the Lion’s Gate (Lion’s Gateway) on 8-8.
I am not even going to pretend I’ve always known about this portal/gate way. Because I haven’t.

However, I have always felt that 8-8 had some sort of significance. Didn’t know what it was or why I ‘felt’ energetic high’s on (and around) this time. I didn’t really put the puzzle pieces together until a few years ago; when I happen to stumble upon something that would lead me to the next thing… information regarding 8-8: the Lion’s Gate. In fact, it was the ‘rare’ 8-8-8 (in 2015: the year of ‘8’) that I would find this; it ‘clicked’/resonated. I took notice, and I was like: ‘Oh, this is so Cool’!

Since there are no coincidences; I was meant to discover this on a deeper level and have it become a part of my new life. I remember really feeling the energies of that Lion’s Gate day (in 2015) – which prompted me to go investigate. Hence, the trail of crumbs I followed to discover and learn about this yearly activation. When you ‘choose’ at a soul level, you will feel/recognize the ‘prompts’ to help lead you where you/your soul wants to go. Apparently this one was long overdue!

So, long story longer… there was a good reason why I (always) ‘felt’ this day.

The quick-compiled description of the Lion’s Gateway is:
The Lions Gate is a time of increased Universal/cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual/the Divine; it occurs in the astrological (zodiac) sign of Leo. It is an alignment with the Earth, the star Sirius, and the Galactic Center; thus becoming a portal/gateway. When this alignment happens, there is an intense surge of light which awakens DNA and transmits high vibrational frequencies and codes/key codes/star codes of and for awakening.

There is so much more information about this special day but that would have me writing way more than I intended. With each passing year, though, it seems there are more articles, more information, and people/light-workers talking openly about the Lion’s Gate. So awesome!

*A side note: A great, reliable, place to look for cosmic information is here:
http://archive.aweber.com/newearthcentral/9ff5h/h/8_8_Lions_Gate_Eclipse.htm

I’m not really wanting to get into the how and why’s of it all. There is enough info out there (elsewhere) that is easy to look up. I just want to journal what this is for me.
🙂

I am understanding that this one is packed with a punch and will flow right on into the New Moon Solar Eclipse just 3 days later. It’s a nice ending (it’s never ending… but you know what I mean) to all this fun eclipse action we have been having. It’s all here to speed up our ascension. A nice kick-in-the-butt, if you will. Soooo many of us will feel this, probably for days!

Leo the lion and your inner child

On the 8th we will receive new Light Codes for our empowerment, strength, freedom, and abundance (to name a few). Then just days later, on the 11th, is the New Moon Solar Eclipse (11:11). This is a great time to, once again, release (more) of what’s no longer serving you. To also really open your heart, feel the joy, express yourself, find (or re-ignite) your passion(s). Let your inner-child out; yes… come out and play!

There are probably some things that you have been putting on the back-burner; maybe it’s an art class, or dance class. Maybe some swimming, surfing, rock climbing or riding a bike through some cool mountain trails. Maybe it’s something that is not as schedule-intruding like: planting some herbs (get your garden-on!); deep-cleaning that bathroom that seems to have gotten away from you lately. Get out, and dust-off, that oh-so amazing recipe from grandma. Then conjure up the confidence to make it (and hopefully eat it too; with friends or family maybe?). Bring out that inner-chef! Whatever it is: NOW is the time to take yourself up on your ‘offer’… and do it! A ‘back-burner’ thought/idea/activity/plan can come to the front! Even those baby-steps count. Just signing up for a class; committing to it – that alone can be a huge step for some.

Remember that each door you open and go through will lead you to your next door (of growth and opportunity). This is also the time to be standing strong (Leo/lion = courage!) and take authority of yourself and your life. Be the truly unique person that you are; be the beautiful light that you are, and come from the place of love. It’s all good… and it will be: all good! Trust your intuition, your guides, and the Universe. This is a time of new beginnings! Y-e-s!  🙂

I, myself, have been super tired (and wired) lately. I know why though… and it’s a good kind of tired. All this energy; all these upgrades, downloads, frequencies, high vibrations! Whew! I can’t seem to get enough meditation time or sleep. I just want to be in meditation (all-the-time!). When I am done with a session, I am already thinking about, and getting excited for, my next session. There are times when I think that it’s kind-of disruptive to my day… and then I quickly realize: I don’t care! What I care about is taking care of my physical (and, yes, spiritual) body while all this beautiful Universal-Pure Source activity is going on! The physical upgrades, alone, can be quite a handful! I have been feeling, sensing, noticing, and witnessing some different changes going on with my body (this year alone has been a doozy).

Just last week – I physically saw my heart beating out of my chest! It was almost cartoonish and a little surreal (but very real). My heart chakra is/has been opening up and re-adjusting itself for a while now (doing lots of work there). When I do have those occasional moments of ‘heart palpitations’ I know it’s an ‘ascension symptom’. This one, I will say, was one of my biggest heart palp moments I have ever had. It didn’t scare me at all. I actually stopped what I was doing to watch this happen right before my eyes! Even though it lasted, probably, 10 or 12 seconds; I was feeling joy and gratitude for the evolution my heart/chakra is receiving and opening up to. I would later find out that we were all receiving heart-opening codes and energies around that time. That makes sense! Thank you Universe! I accept! 🙂

Discovering the possible cause/reasons why (what is energetically happening on and for the planet) help validate. I have a knowing and I trust; but as a human… I also like validation and some confirmation along the way. So, connecting-the-dots of the planetary upgrades with a physical symptom… can ease my mind a bit and keep me grounded! It does help keep you from going a little coo-coo. 🙂

So, along with meditation and sleep, I am eating what I intuitively need to eat. Taking supplements to fill any gaps and drinking plenty of water. Right now I am boosting my vitamin C intake. Not only is this an awesome power vitamin to help if you are breathing a lot of smoke-filled wildfire air (like we currently are); it’s going to help you ward off any ascension flu-like symptoms you may encounter.

During the Lion’s Gate I will be open to receive (as always) and just soak it in. As for the 11th, I will be deep into my sleep state when the eclipse happens (@2:58 am pacific time), hopefully having some awesome vivid dreams! 🙂

Enjoy all this wonderful energy coming in everyone! Take good care of yourself, nurture yourself. When you take good care of yourself… well, I could write something ‘poetic’ here. Instead, just a statement: take care of yourself! It is your vessel right now. You want to be in an optimal-functioning vessel! Right?!
Right!
:-)
Peace and Love!

…and maybe a nap…???

7-12

Happy new moon and (partial) solar eclipse day!

I am pretty-stoked for today. Even though I can’t actually ‘see’ this event from where I live; I feel it (and I will feel it).
I am finding that I look forward to all the astrological ‘event’ days – more so than any traditional holidays. I’ve always had a passion for the ‘moon and the stars’ but as I grow and evolve as a soul on this planet; well,… I just fall in love with it all more and more with each passing day! As I begin to shift away from 3D mentality, thoughts, beliefs, fears, patterns and imprinting – I find that I just don’t have that same level of ‘care’ about some 3D things. Not like I used to. Thank heavens! (Haha… pun intended) 🙂

So… Today is another great day to: ‘out with the old, in with the new’ but with a higher frequency!
At 7:47pm, for my Pacific time zone, I will give pause (and I did) and take a few minutes (or…however long I feel I need) to connect with the Universe. I will set my intentions to: release what no longer serves me, to clear anything (and everything) that is NOT mine. And to put in place my intentions for: the beautiful energies, the love, the light, the abundance, radiant health, and divine wisdom to be: me/my life/my being/my I Am. To send Gaia love and appreciation; and love to all humanity – that we may all feel the one-ness that we truly are.

Peace and love everyone!

P.S. I am noticing that today is a ‘1’ day as well! 7+1+2=10; 1+0=1 … How FUN! It’s a 1/11 day. New beginnings… indeed!
