Take what is True for You, and leave the rest behind.

I've been having great trouble this week writing anything interesting or inspiring for You. I've pondered this cranky state and have some thoughts around it, but wasn't sure whether it was a good idea to share them with you. Is it because I went to watch M Night Shamayalan's Devil on Monday night? Am I carrying some left over stress in my cells that is directing me? Maybe. Am I simply still tired after being ill over the weekend? Maybe. Am I still stuck in transition after my 29th birthday? Maybe. But last night I received some very interesting dreams I just have to share with you.

I've been wondering if I should put this information into writing but after these dreams I feel it is my responsibility to share with You. How you feel about this information is for you to decide. Take what is True for you, leave the rest behind. That's the way of life really isn't it?

This concept of 2012 that many have, is coming much sooner than December 2012. You know, you can feel everything speeding up can't you? We are being shoved into a new paradigm, from the micro to the macro-cosm. Everything is changing and nothing is the same. 

Last night I dreamed of towns moving, buildings collapsing, people not being able to stay steady on their feet. This morning I woke up to find that Queanbeyan has been evacuated because the water in the river is rising so fast (like never seen before). They had to let the dam walls down because it was threatening to burst. If it burst it would have washed the entire town away. 

The thing here is that in the history of the town they have never seen water to this volume. Things are like they've never been before.

Now I warn you that some of the concepts below are not entirely shaped and might read a bit lazily. For now, I feel it is important to get the concepts down rather than worry about if it all sounds nice! I will share with you to inspire your own thought and understanding. That doesn't mean that you have to agree with what I have to say, but what I have to say might trigger your own thought and understanding for You. Bless.

In my dreams buses were screaming through the sky. I take this to mean that the direction of the changes are happening faster than we are expecting. I also think it means that when we think we are travelling one way, we can easily be thrown onto a new road, that is totally out of our own control. This is information for all of us. When I think of travelling on a bus I think about how we can be in the same place going to the same place with a pile pf people we've never even met. There is a powerful energy in that. It is a type of mass consciousness that we don't think about. So I take the flying buses to mean that the load of people travelling together are about to be thrown onto a different course. Some of the buses in my dreams crashed and burned. Some of the buses landed gracefully at new buildings. 

In this dream, new buildings were rising from the ground. In front of Parliament House was a village of domed builidings that had appeared after the water of big rains had cleared. I know this sounds crazy. I do believe that the Mother Ships from our Sister planets are watching over Mama Earth at the moment. There is a need for their guidance as we shift paradigm and open to new ways of BEing. I am very interested to see if they will make themselves seen by the mainstream. I just want to know!

I'm interested in anyone elses feelings about this one - if you have been felling similar : I've been feeling waves of resentment toward Mama Earth. I know some of this is left over from my birth, and is coming up now because I've just had a birthday. Many of us were born into this body and felt deep resentment because things were not the way we were told they would be (or we assumed they were going to be) this time around. Now, She's preparing for it to be as we were told, but it's going to be harder than we might have realised. This week I was feeling irritated that many of my seedlings that I grew from baby seeds have now been washed away by the rain we have had. Now as I watch the bigger stuff happening around me I see the selfish ego aspect of that. She hasn't just 'let me down' with my garden, she is forcing people nearby to evacuate their homes totally. Their homes might wash away! There is a heritage listed building in the city that is about to be condemned and at worst wash away because construction nearby has allowed for water to seep into the foundations of the building. It has moved 600mm last I heard, probably more today. There are four restraunts in that buliding. They were evacuated earlier this week. Mama is not just 'letting down' a few people, she is making a statement!

Many people around me have been sad about the farmers. Finally they have rain and they were looking to have the best crops in years but now there's too much rain and half the crops are ruined! Yes this is awful. But you know what, it's Mama telling us that mass agriculture in the way we have done it for the past 50 years are not okay anymore. We need to go back to learning to sustain ourselves. She is not interested in the person who does not  know how to grow their own food, heal their own heart or care for their own loved ones. If that's you, she has no need for you. Wake up now or give yourself over to the changes. 

Fear has no place in all of this. I have believed for some time that when the Changes are pushed ahead as they are being now, there will be many people living in the 'armageddon' type fear that the movies perpetuate. I also believe that I am not one of those people, and so their way of dealing with things will not affect me. I refuse to entertain the thought of riots, physical attack or any other aggressive beahviours people go into with fear of the unknown. I am trying to staying very open to listening to Mama Earth and what She needs. My patience needs a bit of work I must admit! I want to know now! I want to see the end result, of course in saying that I know there is no end result, and we will continue to change forever. That is life. 

I have been feeling great urges to get everything organised. Finish up loose ends. Clear To Do Lists. Etc. I don't know what is going to happen, but I do feel something is on its way. I can't think forward into 2011. I know that's because the world is changing so fast that how we understand the world now won't be the same so it's impossible to plan.

I dreamed of baby ducklings being born in an enclosure. I hadn't seen them born but there they all were. One of the ducklings was unfeathered and I could see all of it's muscles like one of those posters of the human muscle structure that you get when you study Anatomy & Phys, and then the chest of the duckling opened up and a tube came out. Out of the tube came heaps of feathered white ducklings but they were tiny, but as they came out of the tube they became normal size and hopped away. I don't know what that's about : perhaps the birth of something better it from stripped back craziness. That's how I feel about the world at the moment, it is raw and stripped back. I sense the Truth in people even when they try to hide it with masks and falsities. I can see it and am tired of others nearby not seeing. So perhaps, that little duckling is telling me that something fresh and Real is coming out of that. That's nice.

So that is the ravings of my mind this week. They are unusually all over the place and I just don't have the intention to sort them out any better. A part of me is not coping with that, the perfectionist part, but I've told her to sit down and relax because she's not the most important aspect at the moment! This info was calling to be shared and so I have shared, and I hope somewhere along the way there is something that helps you to be a bit more Real.

Bless You dear reader for sticking with it. May You See and honour your Truth, whatever it may Be.
-Hollie B.

New Moon in Sagittarius - 2010

Dear Ones, Already it is the New Moon again, and I am busy preparing for Red Tent Women's Circles and the upcoming Solstice. Here are my thoughts toward the energies of this month.

Please note, I'm not an astrologer, but I feel and I hear and I see. I like to read various reports written by astrologers, and then put that into a perspective relevant to my own Work, and my own feelings so that the Women who Circle with me have some extra inspiration for the month. And this I share with You.

New Moon in Sagittarius for December 2010 

There is so very much going on this month in our everyday lives, and the Celestial realms are reflecting this for us. The stars play out the stories in the Earth, and vice-versa we play out the stories of the Stars, and so we can look up to them and view the story ahead. It will help keep us in step with the Self, the Earth, the Sun and the Moon. It helps us to breathe easier!

This month's New Moon is in Sagittarius at 3:35am on Monday 6th December. A Sagittarian New Moon is great for planning and setting intentions. The few days leading up to the New Moon are all about letting go, all the way into the very cells of our bodies. As the New Moon is born, it is what I call the Moon Seed Time. This is all about planting your intentions for the month ahead. Its the time to look up to the Stars, get an idea of how the month ahead is looking, and plan accordingly. The secret to bringing your Moon Seeds to fruit is belief, Trust and Truth.

With the Moon Seeds being planted in Sagittarius there's an extra layer of fertiliser! Sag is fiery, motivated, and driven to the Truth. Last month the Stars advised us to honour our 'Dark Side'. To delve into our Secret Self and See our own Truth. Now in Sag we want to be free from all that holds us back. Take the challenge. Trust your Self! The energies are ripe for manifesting, for reflecting upon all we've learned from the year and taking all of those lessons, putting them into action and moving clearly along the path to your Purpose. 

Be warned though, Sagittarius can be easily flighty, excitable and easy to bore. This month, use a disciplined approach to all that you do. Let your actions be entirely conscious. You have been collecting energy all year, and it's ready to move forward, to be released. Just let it know who is in charge – You. 

The energies are speeding up for all of us – it's not just Christmas on its way. Much information is coming through various channels regarding the increase of the Earth's energies and how She is moving into the New Paradigm. We are all a part of this, and all changes from the micro-cosm to the macro-cosm are a part of the bigger picture. Some things I've noticed include the outrageous weather across the world, the WikiLeaks controversy exposing governments and coverups, and the release of new information finding that life can be sustained by arsenic – completely the opposite to our previous scientific understanding of life. It seems that everyday, the world is different than how we knew it before. 

This energy will be added to by a Mercury Retrograde, a Lunar eclipse and the Solstice this month. Exciting! 
Get your Self to a Red Tent Women's Circle.

Relationships & Communication 

We came out of the Venus Retrograde and relationship issues with more understanding of ourselves and the people we love. Now we move into another relationship stress with Mercury in retrograde for more than two weeks this month. Some stuff going on with Mercury Mars and Pluto can expect misunderstandings, technology problems, fights, jealousy, and sexual tension in the air. Do your Self a favour and stay away from busy places full of people, like the shops between the 10th and 14th December.  

Business, Work and Money 

Starting the week of the New Moon will feel good. If you've taken time over the weekend to honour your needs, you'll be feeling inspired and motivated to get to where you want to be. Make business deals, trust your Self in any changes you need to make and use your time well. By the end of the week, Mercury will be retrograde and other planets will make sure it's not the time for investments and money stuff. A 'big deal' Meteor shower in the second week of December will make sure the energy is electric! Focus rather on personal issues and really be True to You. 

Full Moon, Summer Solstice and Christmas 

Wow, this is going to be a Full Moon to remember, just like the Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse this year. Leading to the Full Moon there will be an increase in accidents, busy-ness and un-consciousness. You might think 'well that's just because it's the lead up to Christmas' and you would be right – because with the Christmas lead up there is also a whole lot happening in the Stars. Stay true to your Self by Being aware and awake. Keep your Self in check in your reactions to people and events. Don't allow your Self to get caught up in the mainstream rush, and you will survive this time relatively unscathed. 

This month's Moon Seeds come to fruition in Gemini – when the Moon will be Full, and to add to our emotional work, She'll go into hiding in an eclipse as well. A Total Lunar Eclipse is when the Earth comes directly between the Sun and Moon, and the Moon is completely shadowed, receiving no direct light from the Sun. Lunar Eclipses force us to work with our emotions, and our Inner Self, that which we hide from most people. I find this interesting being that so many of us get together with family for Christmas – and they are the People who really know and see our inner 'stuff', even when successful at hiding it from others. We should definitely be able to see this Eclipse, and by viewing the Moon doing Her dance you will find it much easier to integrate your 'Stuff'. Be kind to your Self.

The Gemini Twins hold the gateway into your deep Self. Honour them, honour You and work between your Light and Dark Spaces. Always when there is a Lunar Eclipse it is followed by a Solar Eclipse. The time in-between can be intense. This time it will run right through Christmas, and New Year, so it's a good chance to clear your self from the common dramas of this time and choose simply to Be. 

Summer Solstice, which comes through just after the Eclipse is the time when Gramma Sun has reached Her greatest peak strength. The pendulum swings back and the year begins to slowly work back to darkness. At this time the Earth is illuminated by the Light and all shadows have light cast upon them. So you really can't hide anything! I think of this Sabbat (Seasonal Celebration) as the Sabbat of Depth and Gratitude. In Australia we are reminded of our Summer connection to Water and the love and joy of Christmas time, regardless of whether you are religious or not. 

The intensity of this time will be asking you to DO something. Get physical – particularly swimming and walking and Being in the garden. Be aware of your alcohol and toxin laden foods intake over the 'silly season' because everything is already intensified. Staying conscious, clear and aware will make for a much more enjoyable holiday. That word again : disciplined.

Christmas Eve energies will be a bit calmer than the lead up, and by the 30th December Mercury goes direct again. The few weeks before the New Year will be working to help us shift from our wants and desires, and move into a Space of trust in the Universe. This time will help let go of the concepts of lack and poverty. Go into the Sabbat of Depth and Gratitude with this in mind and you will greatly benefit. Commune with Goddess Hera who holds the Space for family, yet is unafraid to replenish Her own cup whenever necessary. Embrace the gift giving essence of this time and Be open to receive.

Moving into 2011
We have been promised all year that 2011 is going to be an 'easier' year than 2010 was. We have shifted so much 'stuff' in the Self, learnt to honour ourselves, Mama Earth and out own Truth so much more. It can only be Perfect!

Back to the thoughts for this New Moon 

The big Key for this month : remind yourself with each response : Is this Response free from Fear? That includes when you are relating to People, food, objects (like purchasing unnecessary gifts!) and Mama Earth. 

This time is the seed of the New. The Sun and the Moon are in their own Oneness. Particularly this month think upon unifying and illuminating your Dark and Light Selves, honouring the many aspects of You. Check in with your Self regularly, and notice your True needs. Release stress from your body with conscious methods, such as exercise rather than alcohol intoxication or over eating. Honour all that you have achieved this year. And move into 2011 with the deep knowledge that you Truly Know Your Self.

With Sagittarius in mind, in setting your intentions for this month, I invite you to think upon ways to expand your own knowledge. Finding ways to maintain trust in your Self and the Oneness. Allowing your Self to be independent, free and True to You throughout the month.
