E-CubedE-Cubed: Nine More Energy Experiments That Prove Manifesting Magic and Miracles Is Your Full-Time Gig by Pam Grout is a fun book.

Pam has a candid way of writing which is entertaining in itself, and at the same time the experiments she presents are lively practices that can shake you loose and help you be aware of how fun this thing called “life” can be.

In many ways, what I have to say about this book I’ve already said in my review of her previous book E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality, where I’ve gone into some detail.

This one begins by thoughtfully including a summary/review of the experiments from E-Squared, then proceeds to present 9 more (10, actually; one a “bonus”).

In some ways these are along the same vein, but with a bit more focus on mind-set and more subtle sources of manifestation.

Some of them that I particularly enjoyed and found effective are practices I’ve been making a point to incorporate in my every day life. The main value of this book for me was to remind me how enjoyable playing “in the field” can be, and why it’s worthwhile to do so.

I’m sure you’ll have fun with this and likely benefit over the long term as well.

Note: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes and this review reflects my honest evaluation.

Do you want to blast your mind wide open but still remain practical? Are you finally ready to get out of your rut?

Then E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout is the book for you.

You’ll even come away with some useful “tricks” to use in your everyday life for manifesting what you want.

“Seeing with your own two eyes that you can change reality simply by observing it will rewire your brain and divest you from old conditioning. Learning, through scientific experimentation, how deeply you are connected to the field of potentiality will literally set you free.”

~ All quotes by Pam Grout, E-Squared

First, I’m already on-board with the concepts presented in this book. I’ve been practicing and living them for quite some time now.

They really are valid and they really do work.

But I was still attracted to this book because I was curious to see if there was something new here, and above all, I thought it would be fun to do some experiments.

E-Squared did not disappoint.

Fresh Writing Style

I loved Pam’s writing style, it’s so fun and easy to read. She’s down-to-earth and quite funny. Besides being informative and revealing, E-Squared is entertaining and enjoyable.

And for aspiring writers (oui, c’est moi), it’s a superb example of using voice and analogy to get your point across. Very refreshing!

It’s also a great example of making concepts that could be merely theoretical into exercises you can apply in a useful way.

Energy and Consciousness

A lot of the experiments (all simple, easy, and fun) work with energy and the Law of Attraction.

But you also work with some underlying principles that are even more subtle, related to the Zero Point Field (of quantum physics) and consciousness itself.

It’s a nice mixture.

In fact, reality is nothing but waves of possibility that we have “observed” into form.

Logic and Openness

It’s also a perfect balance of left-brained logic and right-brained openness.

For each experiment, Pam offers a premise and the background facts are presented. You’ll enjoy some great quotes and references, along with ideas for further reading.

This is typically followed by some fascinating stories that are offered as anecdotal evidence, and to which you will definitely relate.

She then lays out the experiment for you to perform complete with a lab sheet that summarizes it nicely and which you use to keep yourself on track and note your results.

So fun!

Effectiveness and Validity

I can’t say that every experiment “worked” for me. And some I haven’t taken the time to do fully yet.

But a lot of them worked like a charm and it was fun watching them unfold into my life.

I did notice, though, that even when I didn’t get the results I wanted or expected, doing the experiment was revealing in some way and still worth my time. Usually, it was because I was not focused or consistent enough with it, or because my own energy was muddled in some way. Without the experiments, I wouldn’t have understood that so clearly.

It’s imperative to practice conscious, moment-by-moment awareness. Otherwise, you’re operating out of old encrusted beliefs, beliefs you downloaded before you were five years old. Do you really want a five-year-old running your life?

So in every case I learned some good lessons to apply as I move forward.

E-Squared: Recommended!

I definitely recommend this spirited book. Pam’s natural sparkle uplifts throughout and makes the whole experience a positive one.

I also think it would make a great gift for friends you might have who are “on the fence”. ;-)

If you play with these ideas and exercises like the author suggests, it will open your eyes to some new possibilities — especially if you’re new to this, but even if you’re not.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes, yet you can rest assured that this review reflects my honest evaluation.

Have you read this book? I’d love for you to leave a comment and let us know how it was for you! Or do you have any questions about it? Ask away!

In Western society, the rational mind rules.

We’re encouraged to develop and honor it above all else, even to the exclusion of all else.

It’s too bad.

Being purely rational — even predominantly rational — limits us more than we know.

Open Mind & Open State

In my last post, I talked about the importance of having an open mind. And what I mean by this is not just being open to new, rational ideas.

It’s about opening your whole self, your larger “mind”, to the idea that you may not know it all; you may never know it all!

And it’s helpful to open to the possibility that there is more than we can ever know or understand.

What happens then is you allow some other parts of you to operate along with (or sometimes instead of) your rational mind.

It’s a more holistic, aware, intuitive, and in short, expanded way of being. (And so fun!)

This is an especially important foundation to build on if you want to be able to take advantage of the Open State that is critical to Emergence, allowing the magic that is you to unfold into your life.

As I’ve said before, if you believe there’s no such thing as magic, you’re not as likely to experience it.

Entering the Open State is easiest if you can expand your mind, or let go of your thoughts altogether (especially your thoughts of disbelief).

But in the meantime, you don’t have to be perfect.

Just make a start.

Open the door just a little.

An Enlivening Dance

The Open State and an open mind work together (or play together).

It’s like a dance, where each interacts with and enlivens the other.

Expanding and strengthening each is an iterative process.

I know this to be true as I am doing the dance, and have been for a long time!

If you’re willing to do this, you’ll find that rather than build new beliefs, your mind will be fluid and open to whatever shows up in the moment.

Your perceptions will be spontaneous and dynamic. (Much more about what this means and how you can do it too in the upcoming Open State series.)

Beyond Thoughts and Beliefs

During our last Activation, we did a quick and easy process together.

Afterward, I got a question that made the idea of this dance quite apparent.

It was about the questioner’s thoughts, and her beliefs — that rational mind, again! — and how they help or hurt the process.

Audio Q & A (& A & A … ;-) )

I wanted to share the question and answer with you.

After the call, a few more ideas came to me and I’ve added those also. (So those of you on the call and with the recording have not heard all of this yet.)

(For some context it might help you to first listen to the Opening + Emergence audio found in my post Open to the Possibilities and Emerge!)

Note: In my answer, I recommend a book called The Field by Lynne McTaggart. It’s a great way to help open your mind, and is a fun read, besides. You can always find it and other books I recommend in my store.

I’ll be recommending more books that are specifically on this topic shortly.

In the meantime, if you want to know more about Emergence, sign up for my newsletter. As a free gift you’ll get the Emergence Primer plus a Tune-Up Session audio that you can use over and over.

Or check out the posts listed in my side-bar for an ordered introduction to this new and exciting way of being and manifesting.

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,

Hello all you powerful creators!

What fantastic creations are emerging through YOU this year?

I’ve spent part of each day this past week asking myself that same question.

And I want to share a process I’ve been using that will help you access your own power to create what your soul wants to bring into the world.

Dreams and Practicalities

I’ve been so enjoying making my way through Leonie Dawson’s Create Your Incredible Year Workbook, Planner & Calendar. Just a dent so far, but a powerful one!

And the more I get into it, the more I love it.

She stimulates your dreaming muscles, yet has an enlivening way of lifting your spirits even while she leads you through the practical steps of planning. It’s a perfect combination. (And as a hugely successful and creative woman, she knows of what she speaks!)

Unlike a lot of planning tools, one of the things she does that I’ve already gotten so much out of is she guides you through a review of your past year before you jump into the next.

I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before, but it’s extremely wise to evaluate the things that didn’t work, and why. (Of course, you also get to appreciate the gifts and successes.)

I’ve gotten so much valuable insight already, I can’t begin to tell you.

It’s so invigorating!

Get and Stay Connected With Yourself

Another thing I’ve been doing on my own, just to make sure I’m clearly connected with my essence as I dream and plan, is I take regular, short (3-minutes or less) connection times with my own be-ing.

I started out using a timer but as I’ve gotten into the swing of it, am no longer needing that.

The advantage is that it opens you to the space where your inspirations reside.

Or rather, it keeps you open to it.

It also helps you get down to what’s really going on. And easily.

Do you ever notice how, when you wake up in the morning, you’re in a super intuitive & creative space?

If you’re like me, that’s when a lot of exciting ideas come flooding in.

This also happens when you’re relaxed and not in “thinking mode”, e.g. taking a walk, relaxing in the jacuzzi, driving long deserted stretches, etc.

Touching in periodically with that space of no-mind reconnects you with that same state.

It’s where our power and intuitive wisdom reside.

It’s so simple it’s almost silly to even outline it here, but I will anyway.

A 3-Step Connection Exercise

As you sit down to work, set a timer for once every 1/2 hour or so. When it goes off (and also once as you begin) take a moment to touch in like so:

1. Take a deep breath in and as you do so, place your attention at your 3rd-eye area (between your eyebrows).

2. Exhale slowly and as you do so, relax your whole body. You’ll notice your shoulders drop.

3. Now as you finish exhaling, immediately drop one more level by moving your attention from your 3rd-eye down to your heart area. You can envision a little elevator taking you from your head to your heart.

Do you feel the difference? How still and quiet it is? Then you’re connected.

Gently hold your attention there awhile.

There’s no need to try to get a sense of anything. In fact, it’s best to simply notice the stillness for awhile.

That’s it! As you do this periodically, you’ll benefit from these brief “re-groupings” and you’ll notice that a wonderful clarity remains with you as you work.

There will be space between your thoughts for ideas and inspiration to enter your awareness.

Those ideas are coming from your essence, and opening to them keeps you on track to fulfill your deepest dreams.

A Match Made in Heaven

A glimpse of the spirit within the pages.

What’s becoming more and more clear to me as I practice this, is that Leonie’s workbook is a tight match to my own spirit.

The further you progress, the closer you feel to your own heart and soul.

And it keeps you in such an optimistic and enthused space. No drudgery in this process, I promise!

If you want to get your own, you can! I highly recommend it. (Treat yourself!)

Just go to her Workbook page and check it out.

It’s a teeny-tiny investment for a BIG payoff.

The enjoyment you’ll get from using it is itself a huge gift you can give yourself.

And I just know that the world, too, will much appreciate the creations you will offer as a result. :-)

With encouragement and joy,
Patti

If you look
with innocent perception,
with unconditioned consciousness,
you can see beauty
everywhere.

It’s a natural expression of consciousness.

You
are pure consciousness,
manifesting.

Everything is you, in your various forms.

Emerging.

That is your purpose.
It’s for the consciousness to emerge fully through this form.

~ Eckhart Tolle, The Realization of Being

May you continue to emerge beautifully in 2013.
As the human being that is “you”, and
as all the phenomena that appear in your life.

May you experience the peace and joy intrinsic in the full allowing of that.


The freedom, the power, and yes, the playfulness!

Can you sense what a beautiful gift you are to the world?
I hope so!

All my best to you.
With love,

Patti


 

P.S. These photos represent just a *little* of the beauty I woke up to on New Year’s day, here in the high desert. I wanted to share some of it with you along with a few of my thoughts as I welcomed this beautiful new year. Here’s to a happy & sparkly New Year 2013!

The art and science of consciousness technology.Whether you approach life with the right or left brain, as an intuitive or rationalist, this art and science of Emergence (a Consciousness Technology) can be both fascinating and helpful!

Art and Science

I remember making a choice in high school: Art or Science? Which direction to pursue?

I was very creative and a good artist, but I loved and excelled at math and science. Granted there are vocations that blend the two, but from where I sat at a tiny parochial school in a small town in the Midwest, I didn’t know that. I felt compelled to choose.

I ended up choosing a career as a software engineer, where I used logic all the time and got to work with some really smart people. It was a good choice for me since it was lucrative and I was able to raise my son (as a single mother) in the expensive San Francisco Bay Area quite comfortably. Of course there was a lot of creativity involved but my work was still primarily left-brained and logical.

Altered States of Consciousness

At the same time, I was interested in what’s often called “spiritual growth” as well. I learned my first meditation technique when I was 18 and studied many different disciplines, philosophies, gurus, teachers, methods, practices, etc. I continued to delve into all sorts of consciousness studies.

Admittedly, I also loved drugs, especially hallucinogens. I didn’t do LSD often like some people I knew, but I did it enough to find out that there are “worlds out there” that we can’t even imagine. Not necessarily the same as reaching altered states without the aid of substances, but not necessarily different in some important respects, either.

I also had a near death experience where I got a glimpse into yet another awesome world.

To this day I’m convinced that anyone who pooh-poohs the idea that there is much more to us and our world than meets the eye, then they are simply closed-minded and although they think we are foolish, they are only limiting themselves.

A Conscious Pragmatist

As a single mom (now grandma) and an engineer (now retired), I’ve always been inclined to deal with things sensibly and realistically. Not wholly but primarily left-brained.

I was always very pragmatic. I had to be.

But that didn’t mean that accessing and taking advantage of whatever these “other worlds” offered me contradicted that. In fact, doing so would be smart. So why not?

Why not a marriage of art and science?

Why not appreciate what our right-brain — and indeed, anything else we have access to — has to offer as well as the left?!

So although I’ve found that for me, drugs are not the answer (for various reasons), I am still wholly involved in raising and expanding my consciousness in natural ways. The difference is that now I approach it more experientially rather than theoretically, and suddenly it’s becoming clear in a way it never has before. Simple and powerful, it’s one of the most satisfying and meaningful areas of my life.

I’m also more than happy to take advantage of the naturally resulting expanded awareness and heightened intuition in order to access practical information and guidance that helps in everyday life. This delights me as I’ve always known intuition exists, and seeing how easy it is to access now is icing on the cake.

A Powerful Combination

When I first learned Matrix Energetics 6 years ago, I had no idea it was related to consciousness per se. And even after taking several seminars, it was only my own putting pieces together and adapting it to my life and my understandings that I began to see that consciousness is, indeed, an integral part of the technology. (At least the way I practice it through what I call Emergence.)

That’s why I like using the term Consciousness Technology (CT) rather than some of the other terms I’ve heard used. (This technology is popping up in various forms but is in such a new stage of life that it doesn’t have a well-known name yet.)

Sometimes it’s referred to in quantum physics or quantum mechanics terms, such as quantum or holographic, or it incorporates terms such as the Zero Point Field (or Matrix, or Energetics ;-) ) or related concepts. This is how it was presented to me, and I’ve done my share of research and reading from that perspective too. This is great when you come at it from the scientific angle.

But I continue to verify for myself that in a simpler and more experiential approach, it’s essentially based on consciousness.

And yet, the outcome is ultimately practical and useful.

The whole point of Emergence is to enhance our lives in meaningful ways, including — but not limited to — those primarily related to consciousness itself (such as attaining inner peace).

But what’s my point?

Emergence for Everyone

You, too, can come at this practice from any or all directions, such as consciousness, science, or even pure pragmatism.

So you may already be interested in developing an expanded or higher consciousness. You may have been interested in consciousness for some time and have an understanding of and experience with various modes of consciousness.

Or like me, maybe you’re a product of the (in)famous 60′s and have had expansive experiences a la Timothy Leary with LSD and other hallucinogens. Maybe you simply like playing around with altered states.

Or you’ve studied various “New Age” means of manifesting … or are familiar with the power of manipulating energy … or  already appreciate the “healing arts“.

Or maybe you are simply interested in being able to get useful results in the material world. Perhaps you’re an  engineer or white-collar/blue-collar worker who puts a lot of weight on what you perceive through your senses. You’re a cut-and-dried pragmatist who merely appreciates the power of intention and hard work.

Or you value science and like my physicist friend, you are fascinated and intrigued by this practical application of  quantum principles.

No matter.

Whichever direction you approach Emergence from, you’ll find value in what it offers.

No beliefs or talents are necessary in order to benefit from it. (In fact, strong beliefs can be a disadvantage.)

And if you want to actually practice it, there are no parts of it that are hard to learn, no matter what your background. And even though consciousness is an essential part of this technology, you don’t have to be a guru or master in order to begin to see results right away.

So if you are even wondering if Emergence is for you, then the answer is a resounding yes.

Yes!

You can benefit. And if you want to do it, that’s possible too.

The fact that you are intrigued is a good sign that you ought to stick around. (Get my posts via RSS feedreader or RSS email or sign up for my newsletter!) If you want to join the growing number of fans of this fascinating

Art and Science of Transformation

then I welcome you!

The “Creation Activation” last Thursday was extraordinary. The activation and all it entailed was truly uplifting, but I was especially impressed that we were given so many tools for manifesting our creations.

(For those unfamiliar, an “activation” is a group Holographic Emergence™ session.)

Sometimes during a Holographic Emergence™ session, you’re given some kind of tool to take away and use as you see fit.

Well, this time, there were 4 — count ‘em, 4! — tools for manifesting that were offered.

I’m guessing The Field felt everyone was adequately curious and adventurous enough that they could and would make use of them.

We did have a group of extraordinary individuals gathered, I will say that. ;-) Thanks to all of you who participated! We had some great energy going there, didn’t we?

Four Powerful Tools for Manifesting

Here are the tools that “showed up” during our activation.

These are examples of the type of supportive “consciousness technology” tools that you learn to use here.

1. Spigot for Creative Flow

The first was a spigot, like a water spigot. Because participants’ creative energy was turned on full blast, it was so that we could turn it down if it got too intense, and turn it back up whenever we want too.

2. A Helper Self

Next came a “helper self”. This is another version of ourselves that we can send off to do tasks for us. In reality we all are much more far-reaching than we know, with abilities to access and interact with everything.

A “helper self” is a useful way to more deliberately interact with expanded realities and abilities. (I’ve gotten remarkable results with this in the past. More about this some day!)

3. Message from Our Future Self

The third tool that popped up was a means of interacting with a version of ourselves that is yet to be, or rather existing but in a different “time”. We were given a message by this wiser and more evolved self which we could either receive right then and there or take with us to hear some other time.

4. A Customized and Customizable Module

And last but not least, we each received a module made especially for us.

A module is a specialized set of various kinds of energies (more on these as time goes on; they’re a Matrix Energetics concept).

Sometimes one will show up that’s customized for that person and situation, and that’s what happened this time. But there was something even more special about this one. It was not only customized already but it also allowed customization by the recipient. This is the first time I’ve seen this happen.

I know some of these sound silly, but that’s the fun of it, after all, and being in a playful state actually helps facilitate results.

Also, I’ve learned to trust whatever shows up during a session as being useful.

Sometimes the silliest things have the most profound effect.

Enhanced Creativity as a Result

I’ve already gotten some great feedback from participants (thank you!), and some of it fairly detailed about meaningful effects of each of these tools.

Plus, as I’ve mentioned before, sometimes (often!) the session begins to enhance your life even before we get together and “do” it. One participant said he’s been noticing improvements in his creative flow ever since I announced the activation. (It’s feedback like this that makes me feel soooo good that what I have to offer can make such a difference!)

As for me, I get an activation right along with everyone else, and I do feel some changes, I’m sure of it. I could hardly wait the few minutes for my netbook to boot to start writing this post. That’s a big change since often my ideas goe onto a list and become yet another to-do in my huge bag of to-do’s that I schlep around with me.

This really is different.

I also got an email in my inbox the very next morning about a creativity e-course that’s starting soon! I’m going to take part in it since I don’t think that was a coincidence, do you? Besides … I want to! It will be fun and you can join us too! Click here or on the image for more info. (I’m an affiliate of Leonie’s offerings — they are wonderful!)

It’s a part of my own emergence, after all. ;-)

Comments? Questions? I’d love to hear what you’re  thinking right now!


Ready to experience your very own
Holographic Emergence™ session?

I’m always available to do these with you; interactive or non-interactive, your choice. I’ve made it a point to keep the fee very affordable, and as always with me, you get caring and personalized service. :-)

Ah, the field.

A huge subject but here’s a simple introduction that will give you a sense of what it is.

You’ll also get to experience it.

But why do I care?, you may ask.

Because that’s the place from which you will manifest all kinds of wonderful changes in your life!

In fact, it’s the place from which you know that all is well.

It’s a place of perfect and total well-being.

It’s always there and we’re always connected but the goal is to experience it more consciously because that’s what helps us earth its gifts.

That’s what helps us bring them into manifestation.

What Is The Field?

The field can be described scientifically to some degree. Lynne McTaggart wrote a whole, fascinating book about it called The Field (emphasis mine) :

Human beings and all living things are a coalescence of energy in a field of energy connected to every other thing in the world. This pulsating energy field is the central engine of our being and our consciousness, the alpha and the omega of our existence. … We are attached and engaged, indivisible from our world, and our only fundamental truth is our relationship with it. ‘The field,’ as Einstein once succinctly put it, ‘is the only reality’!!

We’ll get more into it in future articles, but for now your subjective experience of its essence is what we want to focus on.

How to “Get There”

In my experience there are many different ways of consciously accessing the field. They all involve subtleties, and they all result in a subtly different experience of it.

Here’s one of my favorites*:

(It helps in the beginning to do this with your eyes closed.)

1. Take a deep breath and as you do so, place your attention at your 3rd-eye area (between your eyebrows).

2. Exhale slowly and as you do so, drop your shoulders.

3. Now as you finish exhaling, immediately drop one more level by moving your attention from your 3rd-eye down to your heart area.

Do you feel the difference? Feel how still and quiet it is? Then you’re “there”. Hold your attention there awhile.

If you can’t tell a difference from your normal state of awareness, then repeat the steps again very slowly. Pay close attention to the subtle goings on “inside”.

Notice that even though you took certain steps, when you’re accessing this state, you’re not actually doing anything.

You’re being.

It’s that simple state of being that we’re after.

Soon we’ll learn a few exercises to do while you’re there to strengthen your ability to hold the state.

But for now, I’m curious to know what you think of all of this, whether you have any questions, and how you did with the exercise. Please do let me know in the comments!

IMHO, practicing a Consciousness Technology –  such as this site is about — is the *ultimate* exercise in self-care. However, a talented writer and friend of mine just started a hot new blog, and has her 3rd post in a series today with potent pointers from wise women about their favorite self-care rituals. You can find the first one here (where I’m one of the featured ladies :-) ), and be sure to read them all because there are some great giveaways!

I’m also featured in the current edition of Truly Alive, an impressive local holistic magazine which is recently getting its online footing. Read my article Confused? Stuck? Vedic Astrology to the Rescue! — and there’s a special freebie there, too!

Want to expand your world? Your mind?

Ready to experience life like you’ve never even imagined it?

This is the place. And this is the time.

I’m about to blow your socks off, and you’ll love the freedom of living without them!

And though your feet will be firmly on the ground, your mind will open and expand.

A Tighter Focus

Yet I have to contract so you can expand.

So we can all expand!

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I write about quite a lot of things, most of them related to energy and consciousness, and mainly because that’s what my interests are, and consequently what my services offer too.

From now on, this blog is going to be more focused – on just one of my interests – gasp!

I’ve been resisting having to choose, but it’s been trying to happen for a long time. Then a wise blogger friend pointed out to me recently (thanks, Angela ♥) that as a reader you probably want to know what the hell my topic is from day to day, right? Like, pick one already!

And so I have. It was a no-brainer. It’s the one that turns me on the most, and which is working its way into all of my services anyway (funny how that happens).

The Field of All Possibilities

Ok, so the field of all possibilities probably doesn’t sound like I’m paring down, does it? LOL! But I am, I promise. ;-)

I’m going to limit myself to writing about what happens in one of my Holographic Emergence™ sessions — and how you can do it too! (Holographic Emergence found its beginnings in my Matrix Energetics training.)

You will learn:

  • Just what a “Consciousness Technology” is
  • How and why it’s so cutting edge
  • What makes it a whole new paradigm
  • How it’s integrated with the zero point field (ZPF)
  • How it relates to words like quantum, holograph, and fractal
  • What it has to do with presence, awareness, and being
  • How it transforms, shifts — and rocks ;-)
  • Why it’s not about doing, adding, or fixing
  • Why it’s not even about healing as it’s traditionally thought of

But most importantly, you’ll learn:

  • How to apply it to manifest in a whole new way
  • How to watch your world transform before your very eyes

You’ll transform your life, inside and out, and no areas are off-limits. ~ Click to Tweet

And it’s easy!

But the best news of all, is that:

  • Nothing new has to be added to your to-do list!
  • It’s really just an expanded way of being. You’ll see!

It’s about BEing, not doing. ~ Click to Tweet

So BE Lightspirited with me! ~ Click to Tweet

Let’s Get Started!

So you’re going to see my entire blog transform … slowly but surely … to reflect these changes. (And because that’s what naturally happens in a hologram.)

Of course, I’m still offering all of my services (Holographic Emergence, Vedic Astrology or Jyotish, Intuitive Channeling, and Animal Communication) because I love doing them and because you find value in them.

But my blog topic? Contracted … so we can expand.

Are you ready?

What to Do Next

First, make a decision to come back and share in the adventure!

And then, I would very much appreciate it if you would help me spread the word!

This is my monthly (or so) Jyotish report on what’s going on in the heavens and how we can benefit if we work in synch with the energies. Enjoy!

First, if you like light shows, don’t miss the annual Perseid meteor shower in a few days. It’s right on the tail of the New Moon of the 9th, so the sky will be nice and dark for those of you in low light zones. It is going on already but peaks the night of the 12th/13th with over 100 meteors per hour. (Okay, this isn’t exactly astrology, but too good not to mention.)

Good Days to Take Action

There are four Vedic holidays coming up that we all can take advantage of. These holidays are always auspicious days so they are good for beginnings or for doing any task that you want to have a lasting effect. On top of that, they are good for whatever each holiday specifically relates to, as indicated here. (These dates are for MDT, please adjust accordingly.)

  • 8/13 is the auspicious Naga Panchami, honoring of snakes & serpents, and relates to Rahu & Ketu who are the head and tail of a serpent. There are many fascinating legends about this day, and the idea of some is that if you honor serpents along with the serpent energy, then serpents will work with and for you. This is a good day to work with primal energies, kundalini (e.g. hatha yoga, martial arts, kriya yoga meditation, etc.) and things that kundalini represents such as the potential unleashed by movement toward the divine. It’s also a good day to harmonize with snakes as a precious part of our natural world. You can read a little more here.
  • 8/20 is Varalakshami Vratam, related to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and thus Venus as well. You can find an interesting story here.
  • 8/24 is Raksha Bandhan, related to the malefic planets and is about protection. The festivals of this day are related to the bond between brothers and sisters, so this is  a wonderful day to take time to connect with or show appreciation to your siblings. You can read more here.
    This is also the Full Moon.
  • 9/1 is the auspicious Sri Krishna Janmashtami, Krishna’s birthday, a day of great celebration the world over.
What the August Chart Tells Us

And now let’s talk about what this month’s chart indicates to us and how we can best take advantage of the current energies. [Note: If you are not familiar with Vedic astrology, there are lots of informative articles here.]

Chart 100801

Watch for Opportunities

Jupiter is still in its own sign of Pisces and will be retrograde until 11/19. Planets are strong and happy in their own sign, and even stronger when retrograde. This is very good news since Jupiter is a first class benefic and is shedding its graces on us big time!

Jupiter is an expansive planet, and that means that right now we should all be keeping our eyes open for openings and new opportunities — don’t let them slip by. It’s also easy right now to be optimistic, and this can in turn feed into the fact that it’s a time for increased abundance in general. Jupiter is a planet of dharma, representing our purpose, so it’s an especially good time to move toward what you feel or think will be fulfilling for you at all levels. Some of the other indications of Jupiter are publishing, higher education, learning, teaching, children, spirituality, and whoever we consider to be our guru. Taking actions in any or all of these areas is favored right now.

Mars and Saturn are opposing Jupiter right now, however, so for awhile there will likely be a bit of an impulsiveness counteracted by a need to go slowly, but this shouldn’t be such a major influence as to cause major problems. Or there may be some hiccups in our attempts to move forward, but we should not let that deter us. The good news about this is that Mars will likely add an element of courage right now so that we are more likely to go for whatever we are aspiring to.

It’s Time to Shine

The Sun is in Cancer until the 17th when it moves into its own sign of Leo. As I said above, a planet in its own sign is strong and happy so those things indicated by the Sun in our charts will be greatly favored. The Sun is the planet that represents us in all our glory. It’s how we shine! So while the Sun is in Leo (mid-August to mid-September), it’s an excellent time to take those actions where you want to be seen in your best light and want to be authoritative and influential.

It will be conjunct Mercury on September 3rd & 4th. Mercury is our rational mind and the Sun will help us be “bright” on those days, but at the same time it is so hot that it will likely cause “burn-out”. That means go ahead and take advantage of that mental brilliance, but don’t overdo it!

Inspired Ideas to Express

Besides the Sun, Mercury is in Leo right now, too. As I just alluded to, this inspired, expressive location is a very creative place for our rational minds to be operating from. You can absolutely expect to have lots of great ideas that seem to come out of nowhere. Mercury is retrograde, thus extra strong, from 8/21 – 9/12. This indicates a great mixture of rational, practical thought with the out-of-the-ordinary element that inspiration sometimes has.

Now here’s the kicker, are you ready? Energies moving through Leo really really really want to be expressed! So those great ideas you are having? Put them into action! At the very least, discuss them with someone, write about them, paint about them… something! That will be a perfect first step and the way will unfold from there.

Areas of Pressure Let Up

On the 21st the nodes Rahu & Ketu begin to move again. Ahhh! That means the areas of your life where they have been causing pressure for the past three months will let up significantly. Still, they will remain in the same signs until May of 2011, so they will continue to have a similar effect, just not so intense.

And if you do find that their effects are a little tough to handle, you can find upayas for Rahu & Ketu here. These can be helpful all the way up until next May.

Support for Manifesting our Passions

If you look to the west just after sunset, you will see yellow Saturn, red Mars, and gloriously bright Venus hanging out together in the constellation of Virgo. Let’s see what their teamwork means to us right now.

This is a really interesting combination of planets and location. First, Saturn and Mars are not too fond of each other at all. Saturn is very slow and patient, and Mars just wants to go now! Both, however, are good at making things happen yet in different ways. Mars moves us to action and gives us courage. Saturn helps us plan and move patiently step by step. It ultimately leads to concretizing what begins as something ethereal such as an idea.

Virgo is an earth sign, meaning it is also about manifesting, and in a very practical way. In fact, energies moving through Virgo can be aided by the detail Virgo provides.

So you can see that the planning that Saturn supports can work very well in detailed and practical Virgo, so this is a very good time to take those ideas Mercury in Leo is providing and consider how you might make a practical and perhaps detailed plan to get you where you want to go step by step. Then you can take advantage of that Mars energy to get the ball rolling.

Secondly, Venus and Mars together mean passion! This combination supports and adds to those inspired ideas offered by Mercury right now in that it adds an element of light-hearted creativity and artistry (Venus) and vibrant vitality (Mars) to the mix — again, in a practical way. And Venus and Mars will be moving together for awhile so expect the passion to continue.

We Can Help Venus Help Us

It’s worth noting that Venus is debilitated in Virgo, meaning Virgo is its least favorite sign. Being so light and dreamy and creative, Venus would much prefer a place that is not so gosh-darn practical! The pressure of heavy Saturn and the heat of fiery Mars are also a bit much for refined Venus to handle.

Because of that, I suggest doing some Venus upayas (Vedic remedies) until Venus moves into its own sign of Libra on September 9th, when it will be much happier. Practicing these remedies will help those areas of our lives that are indicated by Venus. These areas include art and creativity, relationships (especially with our beloved), beauty, comfort, luxury, and our means of transportation.

You can find some Venus upayas here.

These Energies at Work – an Example

So, I have to laugh because as I was about to start writing the section above about inspired ideas, I had a GREAT IDEA for a proposal I could make that would move my career forward! Perfect, don’t you think? (And it’s not because I was trying to come up with an inspired idea. In fact, I was distracted from this post and looking at something else entirely.)

Now, if the Sun and Jupiter pull through for me, my work ought to be seen in a good enough light as to open this new opportunity for my expansion. (And I’m noting that I might do best to wait until after the 17th so I have support of the Sun in Leo.)

And besides Mars’ help in the courage area, what I know about these indications just might help give me the extra little bit of  courage I need to make the proposal too. See? That’s how this works! I couldn’t have planned this better!

And speaking of planning, remember what I said about being practical and going step by step? It does indeed make sense for me to get my ducks in a row before jumping in, and I am confident I have support of the powers that be right now for doing just that!

So, wish me luck! (Jupiter’s grace can also be thought of as luck, so perhaps I already have it since Jupiter is so strong right now.)

Your Turn: What’s YOUR Experience?

Well, there’s a lot of information here, and I’m sure it must apply in some way to your life right now! I — and other readers too — would LOVE to hear if and how you are experiencing these energies! Can you relate to any of this? In what way?

Or if you have any questions, please ask! (Someone else is probably wondering too.)
