WHO ARE YOU…REALLY???

by Mario C. Veo

SpiritualSeekerI have always been fascinated by Power and Empowerment…especially once I realized that most of us haven’t a clue!

We drift through Life mesmerized by all that is noisy and shiny, without realizing that it is all designed to use up our Time and Energy…until one day we wake up and wonder where did it all go…and…is it too late now…? What happened to ‘The True One’ – that wonderful Soul Mate that so I yearned for…the Great Job that would fulfill me, and be my valued contribution to society…the Wonderful Family that would openly love and appreciate me, without condemnation and criticism…and those True Friends that will walk with me through Life, so I could share Laughter and Joy.

You may well ask: “Are these things possible?“…or are they Romantic Illusions created by starry-eyed idealists…? Reality check – “when most marriages end in divorce, is there True Love…?

ChoicesSo, I went searching for the answers, and what I found amazed me – Yes, without question, all this IS both True AND Freely Available…however, there is a small catch: You must first discover who you really are…!

You see, the World is not fixed and rigid…there is no ‘One Answer fits All’…and so it is your own Inner Truth that guides you to Success, to Joy, to Fulfillment…and ONLY by realizing this can you awaken a little known Inner Resonance which will automatically and magnetically draw to you all you most desire – in a way that is health, balanced, and rewarding.

And so, I dedicate this month to the exploration of these Energies – both good and bad – so that YOU can be in Choice…and know what you can do to Live Joyfully…or not…as you wish!

Tuesday, Nov 5 – ENOUGH ALREADY…! IT’S TIME TO RELEASE YOUR KARMA!
               7 – 8:30 PM.  $20.

Tuesday, Nov 12 – DEACTIVATE UNWANTED ENERGIES…FREEDOM IS JUST A BREATH AWAY
               7 – 8:30 PM.  $20.

Tuesday, Nov 19 – CLEARING MAJOR BLOCKAGES WITHIN THE CHAKRAS
               7 – 8:30 PM.  $20.

Tuesday, Nov 26 – BEAUTIFUL YOU…YES, REALLY!
               7 – 8:30 PM.  $20.

PLANETS AND POSSIBILITIES: A LOOK AT THE ASTROLOGY OF NOVEMBER

by Sally Shotwell

As November 1 arrives, we may find that a sense of deja vu is overwhelming us since we are being asked to continue juggling the erratic energies generated by the Uranus (independence) square to Pluto (transformation). Even if we stay grounded, there may be bizarre developments to contend with in our extended environment. We know the drill – take deep breaths and escape to a quiet place for a few minutes of stillness whenever things seem to be closing in.

Sabian Symbol for Nov 3 New Moon Solar Eclipse

Sabian Symbol for Nov 3 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio

Two days hence (11/3) we have the New Moon Solar Eclipse (new pathways) in Scorpio (secrets). Making room in our conscious mind for what is calling to be healed, but has been repressed. The Sabian Symbol depicts “people attending an embassy party” and what we are able to learn about ourselves in relation to the groups with which we are involved. In recognizing where we commit our time socially, we can ponder how fulfilling our alliances may be. Are we taking advantage of opportunities available to us which could be emotionally rewarding? Reaching out to like-minded individuals and groups can offer nurturance.

Sabian Symbol for Nov 17 Full Moon in Taurus

Sabian Symbol for Nov 17 Full Moon in Taurus

The theme of releasing ourselves from constrictive patterns is continued with the message for the November 17 Full Moon (culmination) in Taurus (stability). “A young Spaniard shows courage by serenading his paramour opening himself up to possible rejection.” Whatever the response is to his petition of devotion, he has opened his heart and his life will benefit from him recognizing what he values and wishes to claim. Are we clear as to what resonates with us when we seek to find pleasure and joy? Where do we hesitate to declare our truth as we know it?

The Sun, the symbol of our identity, enters Sagittarius (adventure) on November 21 and the atmosphere should become a lot lighter. We are still adjusting to our bodies and psyches to the receding daylight and should remind ourselves to accept the cycle and increase our time to rest and sleep. This self-kindness extends to being conscious of what we eat and what information we’re plugged in to. It is important to be a responsible and informed person, but we shouldn’t beat ourselves up with overexposure to that which destresses us. Let’s envelope ourselves in Jupiter’s beautiful firey light!

Sally Shotwell is a life-long student of esoteric spirituality with a super-natural curiosity and an undying thirst for knowledge. Her focus on studies in Astrology have spanned decades, and have included studying with Mario C. Veo, John Joseph, Mark Husson and C. A. Brooks.

THE MOON, OCCULTISM AND THE GODDESS ISIS

by Bruce Johnson

Isis

Isis, The First Queen of Egypt
$54.99

The Ancient Wisdom tells us that the moon used to be much nearer to earth than it is now, and was also larger than its now shrunken shell. Our moon is part of a previous chain of worlds connected to the earth’s evolution. The moon is far older than the earth, and contrary to the beliefs of many modern astronomers, is the mother or parent of earth, not her child.

Ages ago, Laws of planetary evolution caused the moon to transfer its’ life forces into the earth. The moon is now a dead body, occultly speaking. Its’ inner life and higher principles are gone, and a decaying corpse is all that remains. Earth’s moon will eventually disintegrate, like all physical forms.

Today’s moon is a receptacle of destructive and creative energies, and a reflector of the sun’s light. This relationship with the sun makes the moon most influential during the full moon phase of its cycle. The destructive radiations are a combination of ancient negative thought forms, and subtle particles emitted as the result of its ongoing etheric decay. Moon beams are dual, poisonous to some organisms, and beneficial to others. The creative energies are primarily the positive reflected rays of the sun. It is possible to place oneself in rapport with the forces of the bright side of the moon, and attune to its’ mirrored solar light, especially during a full moon.

Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey $30.00

Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey

Isis was the virgin mother of Egypt, and goddess of the moon. Isis is depicted in the High Priestess card of the tarot deck. This card contains many feminine symbols, including fecundity, water, and moon phases. The moon is also linked with the astral plane, which reflects the light of the sun and higher spiritual planes. The cat was sacred to Isis, and cats’ eyes were said to reflect moonlight like the moon reflected sun light. The cat goddess of Egypt was called Bastet, and was a symbol of fertility and life. This belief is similar to the popular lore of cat’s having extended, or nine lives. Sapphire was sacred to Isis and was said in ancient teachings of some cultures to offset negative energies, including lunar ones.

Alice Bailey’s book- Esoteric Astrology investigates the inner nature of our moon and solar system.

SAILING THE STARS

by Drusant

SailingStarsThe sailors of old with their masted ships would look to the sea and ask what was out there beyond their vision. Those sailors did become greater than their containment and they were pushed along in their quest by their imaginations. The sailors became greater than their accepted limits of boundaries.

We look to the moon and the stars at night although we may feel restricted by our physical form. It is our imagination that will push us to sail beyond those seas. Our soul looks beyond the stars as if we wish to venture into a new territory. The stars encourage us to navigate the many dreams of possibility. We are truly greater than that which we see and we are truly greater than the limits of this material reality.

When we are capable of stretching into the borders of the cosmos by our thoughts, then by definition, we have the capacity to exceed the telescopes or the masted sails of spacecraft. In other words, we are truly greater than we can possibly imagine and we can exceed that which we perceive.

Put your soul’s eye into the center of the revolving galaxy and tell me what you see. Put your soul into understanding and tell me what you feel.

AN EVENING WITH SHMAYA, A CHANNELED LANGUAGE OF LIGHT

Enliven the Sacred Union between YOUR Body and Soul with JoAnne Palladino, Energy Healer and Channel

Monday, November 18, 2013.   7 – 9 pm.   $20.

Channel JoAnne Palladino

Channel JoAnne Palladino

We are all being touched by the changes taking place on our planet.  It is all in divine order to shift old patterns, allowing us to no longer live in fear, thereby aligning us to live from a place of love.  This change holistically affects our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.  To accelerate the self-healing/awakening process involves embracing the totality of who we are by bringing awareness, love, and acceptance to ourselves.  It is the sacred union between body and soul that allows transformation to unfold.  This transformational process involves the dance between the ego and the soul.  The soul is ready to awaken but the ego, riddled with fear, stops us from stepping into the unknown.

To support your transformation you are invited to attend this gathering with Shmaya, a channeled Language of Light, to receive healing, guidance and blessings through the sound and vibration of words that are being channeled that will reach beyond the body and transforms your overall well-being.

Shmaya, which is an Aramaic word, meaning “oneness in all”, is channeling through JoAnne coming in the form of a collective consciousness.  The sound and vibration of the words within this language transmit a variety of healing qualities, touching people on a deep level resulting in a sense of profound peace.

JoAnne Palladino has been in the holistic healing arts since 2002.  She is a Reiki Master/Teacher and Channel for Shmaya, a Language of Light.  Since JoAnne began channeling Shmaya it became clear that Shmaya is here to reach the masses to support the awakening and healing of each of us and Mother Earth.  The intention is to open our heart center to nurture self-love and to live from that place of complete and unconditional self-acceptance. JoAnne’s private practice is in Denver where she sees clients privately and holds groups and retreats throughout the year. Feel free to call or visit her web site.  303.263.0679 / www.sacredunityhealing.com
