Blast Off!

For years now, we have prepared ourselves to take flight. We took workshops, learned various healing modalities, studied metaphysics, meditated, practiced yoga, and did our internal work. Our fuel tanks are now full of knowledge, wisdom, life experience, and life force energy. Baby step after baby step, we checked to be sure all systems are go. We donned our protective suits of love and strapped ourselves in for the ride of a lifetime.

Countdown to launch began on 08/01/08 with the first eclipse of the month. On 08/08/08, the universe pressed the launch button. The thrusters ignited and we were full of anticipation.

In the next millisecond, as we looked out the window from our ship, we saw the supports fall away that held our ship safely in place during our preparation phase. These supports must detach to allow us to take flight. Friends, business partners, love partners, old patterns and beliefs, and anything else whose mission is complete, must fall out of our lives. If they remained, they would only hold us back. On 8/11/08, I detached from a friend who was clearly a support in the past, but who now had become a crutch. It all happened in a matter of days. Whatever is not in alignment with who we are now, will no longer remain in our lives.

In the next millisecond after the supports fall away, fear and doubt may come as we look out the window and see no supports. It feels like we are not moving. What force is keeping us standing fully erect on our own two feet? It is our own power, which perhaps many of us haven't felt until now. I can remember the day my father raised the training wheels on my bike without telling me. I was riding along fine until I noticed the training wheels weren't touching the ground. For an instant, I was afraid. It was only after I realized that I had been riding on my own power, that the fear lifted.

In the next millisecond, we feel enormous raw power. The ship is vibrating and our lives may be a little shaky. This is the most dangerous period of the flight. Expressing our power may be awkward and unsettling at first. After all, we are embarking on a journey into the unknown on our own.

It takes enormous energy during lift off to finally move our ship off the launch pad. We may feel exhausted during this time as every ounce of fuel is used to overcome the inertia of the past. I have felt my share of exhaustion lately.

Our ship moves slowly at first, gaining speed as it moves. Things are starting to move slowly for me and I know that my work is gaining momentum. Be patient. The accelerated manifestation phase is quickly approaching.

After our booster rockets spend their fuel, it is time to release them. This occurs in stages. Releasing the old through the physical body occurs in stages as well. For the past several days, I have had a scratchy throat and tightness in my chest. My sacrum hurt the other day, and now the pain is gone. Symptoms will come and go until we release the old that is not in alignment with our higher vibration.

Finally, we enter into our orbit. We come back into balance with the higher frequency of who we are now. We are free from the gravity of the past and life floats effortlessly. The new orbit we reach is our heart's desire. It is the reason we are here.

Side View Mirror

As one eclipse ends and another begins, it is clear that what was hidden or eclipsed, must now come up to the light to be viewed. For most of July and the first week of August, it felt like I was mired in a tar pit. From the depths of this natural trap, I quickly learned not to resist. The more I tried to make things happen, the more they disappeared. Surrendering to the energy of inertia was the only viable option.

Surrender I did, not only to the inertia, but to diving deep into my limiting past patterns and beliefs. One by one, they surfaced to be examined, emoted, and excised.
Not only did I release past patterns, I released past relationships that were no longer in alignment with who I am now. It wasn't pretty. What does look pretty coming out of a tar pit?

Sandwiched between the eclipses was the 08/08/08 portal. Since then, things happen magically, without much effort. As I was riding in my sister's car the other day, I once again read the words on the side view mirror: "Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear." Yes, I thought. The objects of my desire are closer than they appear. I can't see their outward manifestation with the same eyes I used to assess other manifestations in my life. I live in a different world now. Things come to me in different ways. No wonder I can't see them. I am looking for them to show up through my limited perception.

Abundance and prosperity come in various ways, not just through conventional work. My current mind cannot grasp the universe of infinite possibilities. Why not just surrender to what I mapped out for myself before I came into this life and enjoy the ride? The harder I try to make something happen, the further I push it away. The more I allow my abundance to come, the faster I draw it to myself. The slower I move, the faster things unfold around me....exactly what the "tar pit" was designed to do.

So, if you feel like you aren't "doing" enough and think you need to make things happen, try slowing down, going with the flow, and enjoy each moment. And remember, "Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear."
