Today's topic: Transforming Fear
Dear Awakened Journey, What is your best advice for overcoming fear? - signed, Piscean Girl
Dear Piscean,

I love this question. There are many wonderful practices that can help us rewire and transform our tendency to worry and feel afraid. Of course the deeper our wounding or severe our life traumas the more tender circuitry some people have to heal and work with and that may require more time and deeper techniques. But overall it's helpful to know that all people, with our survival instinct intact and the many challenges we face throughout our lives, are in fact challenged with the task of mastering and even managing our fears.

Like all emotions, fear comes out of thoughts and energy and sometimes has wise and caring messages for us as well. So let's first also learn to honor and hold it, gently and respectfully as we embrace and dissolve its denser hold. The more we allow our fears to have space and acceptance, the more able we then become to also shift and heal them with love. And to heed their sometimes loving purpose, which is really to keep us safe and well. 

Additionally, like my old Teacher used to say, it's good to remember that (all) practices will be easier when our bodies or things are flowing well, and more difficult when we are sick or in a challenging circumstance. So if you also have alot on your plate at any time, and as always, be gentle and compassionate with yourself as you both sit with and rewire your ability to move out from fear and into love. You will be learning not only how to stop feeling so afraid, but also how to accept that fear is also a natural part of life and can be met with ease and grace and acceptance and moved through us easily like any other emotion.

But overall - the greatest practice I can share with you today is one of  the simplest and also my favorites. You may already know it, it is called 'Feeding the Good Wolf.' This is a great teaching for rewiring our fear-based thinking back to love. It's really all about shifting focus. 
Here is a simple story and parable that is a really good place to begin - or re-begin - to shift out of fear today... it's called: Feed The Good Wolf.

Enjoy. and 
Lots of love. 

The Legend:
There are 2 wolves inside each of us that battle all the time.

One wolf is Bad - full of fear and negativity. this wolf is cruel and a liar, filled with hate, anger and resentments. he is jealous, greedy, arrogant and selfish. he causes pain and destruction in the world. and he is afraid.

One wolf is Good - full of faith and positive outlook. she is honest and lives in compassion and love. she is patient, lives humbly and brings peace joy and goodness into the world. She holds consciousness, awareness, and is both wise and peaceful.

In this battle, one wolf will eventually win.

which wolf will that be?

The answer is ....

The one you feed.
Keep feeding the good wolf. 

Biggest blessings and hugs.

Harnessing Personal Power: Looking Within

Harnessing Personal Power: Looking Within 

Massive changes are happening now in our psyches, hearts and cosmos. We are each on our own shaman's journey, as it were, travelling deeply on individual time answering and taking full responsibility only for self. The goal that many of us are sharing is the greater goal of harnessing our Personal Power. Cleansing out the old on another clearer level and allowing great spaces to open for the expansion that is occurring now.

Many of us are feeling the inward/outward pullings of the expansion, contraction, expansion, contraction of foundational re-Birth. It may feel quite exciting and tingly, in between the gasps and eruptions and great need for rest.

With this comes a gentle reminder that is it not only ok but essential for us to take really good care our bodies at this time, particulary those of us who are most sensitive to the Energy fluxes now. Drink plenty of extra water, lots and lots (add a lemon), and give your body (and mind) the rest that it deserves and may be asking for throughout the day. Listen to your favorite tapes, music, pray quietly and personally and let Divine Source come through and do the work. Trust that the Energy is taking care of you and all, and we just have to allow, surrender, follow, and take gentle happy care of ourselves through this shift.

After the Capricorn full moon of last Saturday, it is also a good time to connect and reflect with treasured groups or community, spiritual family, and selected "favorite" (the kind that feel good) relationships. A nice time to share and reflect together as we are feeling these pullings all around the board.

As we make our way through our individual processes and deeper self healing/self cleansing right now, there are many wonderful astro reports to reflect and guide us on the way. This one is from a post earlier in July. I love how it supports us in pursuing a "new revolutionary state(s) of mind" as we pursue our highest outcomes and potential for individualized spiritual growth and expansion at this time. namaste

happy travels, and summer blessings on the Path.

Today the Sun swings into a potent position, making exact aspects to two planets: a square to revolutionary Uranus, and a trine with restrictive Saturn. It is also important to note that Chiron the Wounded Healer is aligned in very close trine both the Sun and Saturn – so that a momentary grand trine formation occurs in the Water signs. The brilliance and vitalityof your consciousness is coming into contact with some deep and heavy material, most likely in a way that results in greater connection to ideas and higher learning. With Uranus also so involved, there are surprising epiphanies and unexpected situations that could easily occur, and you are counseled to exercise caution whenever possible and to take the high road in your dealings with others. Perhaps you are becoming more emotionally aware of areas in your life where you feel limited and blocked. With Chiron in the picture, it is beneficial to look within, asking yourself what wounded places from your own psychology could be contributing to your challenges. The obstacles that appear before you might actually stem from deeply hurt places inside of you, and until these pieces are brought into the light to be healed, they will continue to prevent you from stepping more fully into your personal power. With the archetype of Uranus swooping in from left field, the medicine you need could be found in pursuing a frame of mind that is revolutionary for you as an individual. Reaching as far outside of your comfort zone as you dare could be instrumental in moving toward resolving your issues and finding your own power. By taking the roads less traveled within your own psyche, you may be surprised to discover that the wisdom to be able to move forward was within you all along.
