I found this post from Astrologer Maria Shaw on Wednesday that I want to share with you in case you don’t get her posts. I meant to post this then, but time just got away from me.
“Today Uranus opposes Mars EXACT…right to the degree astrologically. This was the day I was warning everyone about…crazy things can happen. You have already seen some crazy reports in the media like the Miami shooting, etc. Be wary on the roads, when traveling and of people just being plain ornery and angry. You may also suddenly break free from a situation or decide to change something radically in your life and don’t care who likes it! Be kind to others. Take time to breathe…..this aspect will lessen as we move into the weekend and the new moon on Friday.”
I’m glad to read that the energy will be better by the end of the week. I woke up like a crabby bear today wondering what in the world I was feeling so crabby about. The cat that we adopted on Sunday is having a tough time with this transition and is meowing all through the night. I figured I was crabby because of lack of sleep so I’m glad to know it’s just more than lack of sleep.
A friend of mine was talking to me about his distrust of God. He said he never had a good relationship with his dad and he has projected all those feelings onto God. I wanted to jump in and reassure him that the God I’ve met on my spiritual journey is not like our parents, except for the unconditional loving, patient, nurturing, joyful part (some of you just rolled your eyes). Way back when I was starting my spiritual journey I was very confused about how to think of God. The Bible says we are made in God’s image and likeness so I figured God was mostly human and that made me not trust Him at all.
I had a thirst to understand this “Supreme Being” so I read books, attended spiritual lectures, read more books and slowly but surely, pieces started to fall into place. I started to understand that what the Bible meant is that our soul is made in God’s image and likeness and as we grow spiritually, we see God not in a limited human perspective, but something much greater. I wrote about this journey in my book called Look for the Good and You’ll Find God which I highly recommend if you are searching for a greater understanding of God.
Once we realize God is so much greater than our physical parents and has nothing but the best of intentions for us and our life, it gets easier to wade into that pool of trusting the inner voice and living by it’s guidance. Intuition is the voice of this Supreme Being within all of us. Even animals have this inner knowing. I know everyone reading this has had that inner knowing many times in your life and depending upon the circumstances, you either listened to it and it turned out really well, or you didn’t listen to it and it didn’t turn out so well.
We are in such deep changing times right now. People’s lives continue to be up-rooted with job changes, kids growing up, financial worries, health challenges, sudden death of loved ones. You name it. It’s happening all around us. Now more than ever we need to plug into that still small voice within and let it guide us with our decisions, with our lives. And that’s what Lilli was referring to when she asked if we are going to continue to live like everyone else, only living from our heads and trying to live up to the Jones’s or are we going to go on our own path, following the guidance from the Divine within us.
We didn’t come here to be like everyone else. We came here to discover our own potential and live up to it. We came to be trail blazers and discover the strength and courage within ourselves to do that. Living the spiritual way is not for the faint of heart. It takes courage to stand alone and live a way of life we believe in because most often the “muggles” in our lives don’t understand it. (a Harry Potter reference to people who don’t live a spiritual life)
What’s most important for me to say in this whole blog is to give the REAL God a chance.
We’ve got the God of the Bible, the God we’ve learned about in church, the God our parents believe or don’t believe in………………But for those of us on a spiritual path, we need to separate ourselves from that version of God and find the REAL God. Ask God to reveal the true being that he/she is. Don’t confuse your physical parents with your spiritual parent. God isn’t flawed. God is not a limited human being. God is so much more………….and the best way to know that is to ask this Divine Being to reveal itself to you. And then the journey begins.
until next time…………………God Bless.
