This is a very potent week with so many converging Holy Days.  In the Hindu tradition it is Holi the “Festival of Colors” is celebrated in honor of the victory of good over evil!  In the Jewish tradition it is Passover is a lunar holy time commemorating the emancipation of Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt.

b220599787The Christian tradition celebrates Easter, a time of observance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after the crucifixion.  To be more precise word Easter actually originated from the pagan tradition when during this time of spring festivities honoring the fertility goddess Eastre with her symbols of rabbits and eggs were held in celebration of the Earth’s regeneration and new life cycle!

Also Mary Magdelen is often left out of the the modern day Easter story.  Mary Magdalen truly considered to be the “Apostle of Apostles” was there with Jesus and anointed his body with Spikenard a powerful aromatherapy application to assist in experiencing higher levels of consciousness.  She is also the origin of the tradition of coloring of St.-Mary-Magdalenethe eggs.  For when Mary went to the Apostles to share the news that Christ had risen and they initially didn’t believe her so she held up and egg and said “He has risen, He has risen” and the egg turned Red!  So interesting to see how these stories have been lost or changed over time.

 

All of these Holy Days follow the Lunar calendar with the Full Moon aligning on the axis of relationships with the Sun being in Aries (relationship with self) and the Moon in Libra (balance in relationship with others) it is interesting to note these Holy Day stories are ones of relationships — oppression of others and freedom from bondage.  The lessons of Aries are about finding our own autonomy and authenticity on the one end of the zodiac; and the other end are lessons of Libra which are about creating healthy compassionate relationships and learning to be with others in good and positive ways.

 

attachment-6No matter what religion or spiritual practice you ascribe too, we invite you to take a healing journey with us.  This Full Moon energy illuminates and helps us to cleanse and let go of any veils of illusion that have been shrouded in confusion that have lead to fear and oppression.  We are then able to see more clearly the truth of what we have created and to recognize that we are one people and one interconnected and interrelated family!  We offer this 33 minute audio meditation for healing, peace and unity amongst all people of the earth!

There is diversity in unity for all life is interrelated and interconnected and the whole is the sum of its parts!  What affects one part of the planet or one group of people surely affects us all.  When we learn to love and embrace the many parts of ourselves and others we can create more balance and harmony within and without!

Similar to the astrological symbol and teachings of Pisces where we have two fish swimming in opposite directions and tied together at the center, in the Hawaiian Huna tradition there is a teaching that explores and unifies three aspects of self.  These aspects are our Higher or Angelic Self, our Middle Heart Centered Self and our Primal or Lower Self.  Taking some time to explore these aspects of self can be quite enlightening and expansive for each aspect has its own gifts and wisdom.  Sometimes when we think of coming into higher consciousness we may believe that we need to shun and repress our primal instincts.  This guided meditation will bring you in touch with the gifts and wisdom of each.

To dive deeper into this subject, journal the following about each aspect of your self:

Step 1  For each aspect of self, write about where you found yourself, what were you doing?  What was your environment like?  How did you feel in this environment?  What were your gifts?  What did you like about this aspect of yourself?

#1.  Heart Centered Self

#2.  Primal Self

#3.  Higher Self

Step 2

Journal about the meeting of your Higher Angelic Self with your Primal Self.

How did that feel?

What did they have to say to each other?

Step 3

How did it feel to hold the heart space for the meeting?

Step 4

What are your takeaways from this exploration?

Perhaps by holding a loving space in our heart and welcoming all aspects of ourselves we can create more wholeness and acceptance for ourselves and others.  This peace cultivating practice that can help us to have more compassion for our differences, find deeper appreciation of our commonalities and bring so much more richness to our lives. There is diversity in unity.  There is only one planet here and one race, the Human race!

This practice was inspired from Mystical Alchemy’s March, 11th 2013 New Moon in Pisces Virtual Ceremony with special guests Hawaiian Kahuna Auntie Pua and Rev. Kedar of the Temple of Peace in Maui.  Auntie Pua so loved the meditation that we went into the studio and created this recording with a wonderful original Mystical Alchemy Sound Healing score!

It’s the Year of Love!  So what does that mean?  Well 2013 adds to a 6 (2+0+1+1=6) and in the Tarot it represents the Lovers who are governed by the Universal Law of Union. This energy attracts, harmonizes and heals.  Being able to align with this love frequency can help us to create deeper connections and heal the things that have separated us!

Here are four simple steps to bring us into more heart consciousness and that healing love vibration!

1.  Close your eyes and turn your awareness within and upon your breath.

2.  Bring your awareness to your heart area and begin to breath in and out through your heart.

3.  Activate a heart feeling by recalling something that makes you smile; a remembrance of love, gratitude or appreciation.  Perhaps thinking of someone you love or somewhere you love being,  something you are grateful for.

4.  Make the feeling stronger.  Breathe.  Anchor it into your cells by touching together your thumb with your forefinger!

In this state we can transform our surroundings and the world.  Have you ever smiled at someone and they lit up and smiled back?  This is because they were feeling your love frequency and you have activated love within them by possibly making them feel seen or cared about at the very least.  As we help each other activate our love frequency it’s like turning on lights in a dark room and all fear is healed and vanishes.

A field of greater connection and unity is created.  The Hawaiian’s call this to making things “pono”.  They have a practice of Ho’opononpono which is about forgiveness and healing.  If we are in a state of unforgiveness then we are separated not only from each other, but also from ourselves because we are leaving some of our energy connected in a negative and depleting way with those with whom we are in conflict.

We can gather our energy back through the practice of raising our love frequency anywhere and anytime!

I seem to be encountering this as a recurring theme this week! I love the quote that “what other people think of you is none of your business” … and it reminds me of what one what my spiritual teachers taught us in seminary. She said to be ever diligent and watch your thoughts. Watch when you are in judgement and projecting and develop some mental discipline and see what it’s reflecting for you! Spreading judgment as “truth” is like spreading gossip. I once saw a movie where an elder was teaching someone about the effect of spreading gossip and they took them to the roof of a New York skyscraper and cut open a feather pillow letting it go to the wind and then they turned to the initiate and said … now go and try to recollect all those feathers … you’ll have the same challenge in correcting the gossip you’ve spread! Kinda impossible.

Salmon say that “studies have demonstrated that it quantifiable shifts have been measured in places where people have gathered to pray and focus on crime rates being reduced for example.”  Science has shown that it takes the square root of 1% of a population to focus together to create such a measurable shift.  For the planet that is around 700,000.  It is a goal of the Virtual New Moon Ceremony to have 700,000 people tuning in every month by the end of 2013 to focus in prayer and for inspiration from a diverse group of special guests representing many cultures and spiritual practices.
