Spiritual Awakening 101

Spiritual Awakening In The 21st Century

Spiritual Awakening can be confusing. What are the “symptoms” of a spiritual awakening? Well, it depends on who you ask… Nowadays, there is confusing information online about what “Spiritual Awakening” actually entails. Depending on who you ask, there might be conflicting answers from folks who might not exactly know what they’re talking about.

Christy Forsyth is here on this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien to talk about spiritual awakening, working with various energy sources, encountering spirit guides, and how to navigate these somewhat confusing times.

 

 

Christy is a Soul Therapist who specializes in helping people unlock the potential of their soul power. By connecting with this higher force (a “higher self” if you will), the individual moves closer to understanding their own spiritual awakening.

On this show, we dive into talking about Spiritual Awakening and how unlocking the true calling of your soul is a powerful element of the equation. Christy is experienced in working with folks during their spiritual enlightenment moments and we will dive into some of the specifics to help eliminate some confusion. This topic is increasingly popular in today’s world due to the proliferation of the internet… As a result of that growth of the collective consciousness, more and more folks are reporting symptoms of a spiritual awakening and looking for answers. I believe the human species is evolving and this spiritual awakening is a part of that process.

Let’s dive into this topic with Christy Forsyth and start to expand our horizons!

Spiritual Awakening And Career Success

Spiritual awakening can help a person in their career. How is this possible? Well, oftentimes our career goals can be difficult to ascertain. In other words, it can be complex to decide what type of job we want to take, what sort of business we might want to begin, and where we ultimately want to take our career and work. Spiritual awakening can help us tie in more with our soul purpose here on the earth during this particular incarnation. When we begin to unlock that ability within ourselves, the path forward becomes more clear.

Spiritual disciplines take time. In today’s busy world, it often seems like a waste of time to focus on reading spiritual books, attending spiritual retreats, or learning more about spiritual awakening in general. However, it has been my experience that taking this time is absolutely essential to really begin to understand our purpose and what our souls are longing to experience in this time on the planet.

In fact, this entire Beyond Homo Sapien brand is the product of my own spiritual development as I further unlocked exactly what my soul was longing to experience and contribute to the world. When I learned to deeply connect with my spiritual guides and unlock the ability to tap into my own intuition, the process of developing my business become more clear. Here’s a post that dives into this topic in particular.

Spiritual awakening is an ever-evolving and changing process. Again, this process does take some time and deep introspection. When we learn the importance of taking that time away from our career to do some intense spiritual development, everything changes. Our purpose becomes more clear. The epiphanies and realizations for how to evolve our career becomes more clear.

Hanna Hermanson and I dive into this topic on this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast. Hanna is a coach who helps millennials develop in their career and their ability to run a business and contribute to the world. On this show, we talk about the importance of prioritizing spiritual development despite a busy world that seems to distract and detract from this being a priority.

Spiritual awakening is a deeply personal process. Listening to folks like Hanna and myself can give a powerful insight into the journey of others but always remember to trust your own intuition, your own experience, and learn to listen to your own spiritual guides. The process is well worth the time it takes to develop!

Hanna put together a free course to help you integrate some spiritual practices into your day that will help take your business to the next level. Want that free gift? Click this link here.

Esoteric Origins Of Human Ages

Are Esoteric practices like astrology, divination, and magic at the basis of every great age of mankind?

From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution, the next giant leap forward in human achievement seems to be accompanied by the same esoteric practices and ideas…

On today’s episode of Beyond Homo Sapien, Michael Nnebe “the Peace Dealer” is here to dive into what exactly is going on!

 

“Spiritual awakening” and the law of attraction are in the spotlight. Astrology and psychic readings are experiencing a resurgence of interest across the world. New technologies like Artificial Intelligence, VR technology, or blockchain technology is advancing simultaneously with these esoteric practices… is this all a coincidence?

Folks like Wim Hof are becoming celebrities over advancing new breathing techniques and forms of Yoga and Meditation…

Aubrey Marcus is seeing a similar celebrity around teaching about psychedelic plants, holistic living, and open relationships.

What is happening here?

The next age of human expansion is happening simultaneously to an advancement in ideas about the human experience.

Once again, esoteric traditions are making themselves known at the same time as humans advance the technology used to power life on the planet. Just as in ancient Egypt, the technological marvels are happening at the moment of our peak interest in the “hidden arts”. Did you know that the same happened at the time of the Renaissance or the Industrial Revolution?

What Is Synchronicity?

Synchronicity is a powerful force that seems to be “the universe” attempting to relay some sort of message… Have you ever experienced a moment where you heard about a book or a word that was completely foreign to your mind but then it begins appearing all over? Perhaps you hear about the name of some spiritual teacher or thought leader and then suddenly begin to see their books in stores, their videos on YouTube, and more friends speaking about them?

What is going on here? Is synchronicity just a series of coincidences or is this a sign of spiritual awakening? When it comes to “spiritual awakening symptoms”, many folks report seeing increased synchronicity to the point where the “universe” seems to directly have a conversation with that individual as they experience their spiritual awakening.

Personally, I have had many synchronicities happen to me that I would consider miraculous. In my own experience, it is often the case that synchronicities correspond with my thoughts. For example, I may be going down a specific train of thought in my head and suddenly the exact words that I am thinking pop up moments later on a billboard, a book, or on some website I’m browsing. What is happening here? Are synchronicities a sign of spiritual awakening or am I just a crazy person who is interpreting coincidences to mean something that they do not?

Ash Cotter is an expert in synchronicity, numerology, and consciousness evolution. On this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien, we dive into this topic in the attempt to answer the question “What is synchronicity?”

“What is synchronicity?” Is a question more and more folks are asking these days as the human species continues to evolve. With the expansion of the internet comes a new age of questioning around esoteric and paranormal beliefs such as synchronicity, the law of attraction, or psychic abilities. Is all of this a sort of collective spiritual awakening? Is it possible that the collective consciousness is evolving? What does that type of an evolution even look like? This is what we must uncover to get to the bottom of what’s going on with the human species. Spiritual awakening in some form is an important part of this process but it is unclear exactly how this will all unfold.

Spiritual Awakening “Problems”

Spiritual awakening can bring its own “unique” set of problems…

I’m not talking about the “physical symptoms” of spiritual awakening…

Want the full breakdown? Watch this episode of the Podcast with Jax Atlantis:

 

 

We are talking here about the excuses that folks seem to make to justify their lot in life. Oftentimes, whenever a person discovers certain spiritual teachings, that individual uses these as “reasons” for why their life is not going in the direction they want. Whether it’s talking about the Law of Attraction, working with Spiritual Guides, developing Psychic Abilities, or a variety of other “spiritual abilities”, there are certain excuses that unfortunately get used to mask a person’s limiting beliefs.

Now, I do not want to sound too harsh. In fact, I hope to present this idea from a place of love and gentle guidance. You see, I was raised in the Christian church and left when I was 17I am concerned by what I see happening these days in the “spiritual” community because we seem to be repeating old patterns from the orthodox religions such as fundamentalist Christianity. By talking about these issues now, I hope that we can steer the ship in a different direction before we get lost down the same old roads.

Here’s a few examples of what I mean by “Spiritual Awakening Problems”:

  • Not starting your business because your “spiritual guides told you not to”.
  • Being a cranky asshole because “Mercury is in retrograde”.
  • Breaking up with your boyfriend because “their vibration was whack”.
  • Failing to achieve your goals because “the universe” must have something better in store for you…
  • Thinking that someone else might be failing at their goals because their “vibration is low”.

Etc. etc. etc.

I’m here to vouch for authenticity and transparency.

Oftentimes, these are just excuses to hide the REAL reason for why a person is doing the things they are doing.

When I was growing up in Christianity, I saw these same exact situations playing out differently… Let me give some examples:

  • Breaking up with your boyfriend because “God told me to”.
  • Not starting a business because “I was convicted by the Holy Spirit and told not to”.
  • Resigning yourself to a shitty job because “God just does not have a better job in store for me I guess…”.
  • Dropping out of school because “Jesus wants me to focus on evangelism and spreading his word to non-believers”.
  • Not inviting someone to your party because “they curse a lot and Jesus doesn’t like that”.

Etc. etc. etc.

These are oftentimes just excuses or bullshit reasons that do nothing more than keep folks stuck running in circles, living miserable lives where they never achieve their goals.

“Spiritual awakening” cannot be an indoctrination into a new religion that repeats the same bullshit, the same patterns, and the same mistakes as those that came before. We are collectively on the verge of tapping into something real… The actual self realization, spiritual awakening, and collective evolution that we have been grasping after for millennia… The final hour of human enlightenment and collective merging into the true understand of the nature of consciousness that has ALWAYS been our potential.

Let us not fall back into the same tired old patterns that we are collectively sick and tired of repeating.

Let us move forward into something new.

Here’s what’s real:

Limiting beliefs disguise themselves. They hide in plain site. They bury themselves under more “logical” reasons and shit explanations that help our ego to validate our experience and why we are not achieving the goals we have set for ourselves.

For example, your business isn’t failing because your “spiritual guides have something better in store for you”… Its failing because you are holding onto this belief that you do not deserve success… That you are not made like those who succeed.

These beliefs are poisonous.

Honestly, it is not your fault that these beliefs were developed… not at all.

Limiting beliefs are oftentimes inherited from our parents. They are passed down through our genetics. They exist in the collective consciousness. Indeed, there are limiting beliefs that exist at the species’ level such as “the world is a dangerous place”…

However, it IS your responsibility to identify these limiting beliefs and root them out at their core. When you do this, through the power of Morphic Resonance, you do an incredible service to the collective mind. You allow the species to collectively emerge into something more powerful.

By identifying and removing these limiting beliefs, you restore humanity to its true and fullest potential. You do a massive service to your fellow man.

Spiritual awakening is a complex and deeply personal process. It is unique. The “spiritual awakening” that you experience might look absolutely nothing like the one that I could experience. We are each of us unique and on our own journey… Our own path.

In today’s world, there are so many “fake guru” individuals (especially in random Facebook groups or YouTube channels…) who will lead you down a path of chasing your tail and failing to make any actual progress towards the goals that you secretly KNOW you are meant to achieve. Do not allow them to do this. Do not be a victim.

You are the force that is meant to change this world and mold it into The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible

YOU are the carrier of a story that can rapidly change our world into something more powerful.

All that is standing in your way is your own self and the limiting beliefs that your ego is tricking you into believing you must still hold onto…

For the good of us all, I pray that you will find your voice, realize your potential, and live the purpose that I KNOW you are put here to achieve.

Follow that inner voice… It will always guide you home.

Spiritual Awakening And Shamanism

Spiritual awakening is tied closely with the idea of shamanism. What is a shaman? Essentially, some sort of spiritual teacher or spirit guide who is able to help people experience a spiritual awakening, align closer with their soul purpose, unlock their spiritual power, or explore the “otherworld” through the use of psychedelic plants, channeling, or powerful forms of ceremony.

Shamanism is an ancient class of individuals dating back to prehistoric times. Over the centuries, shamans have taken a variety of forms. Whether they are the “witch-doctor”, the “druid”, the “elder”, or any other variety of explanation, the shaman purpose has been the same: the spiritual development and guidance of the tribe, typically with the assistance of some form of spiritual guidance with which the shaman communicates regularly. In today’s world, we see a large exodus of individuals traveling to places like the Amazon rainforest in order to experience psychedelic plants like Ayahuasca under the supervision and care of shamans. These traditions date back thousands of years and stretch backwards towards the ancient days of our species.

Spiritual awakening is tied with shamanism because both rely upon the recognition of a person’s own spiritual gifts and abilities.

Spiritual growth is the realm of the shaman. This individual is able to facilitate healing, ritual, ceremony, and general advice relating a person’s spiritual journey and awakening here in this world. In the same way that the smith might forge metal and into a more specific creation, the shaman is able to commune with the spiritual realm in order to alchemize a person’s soul power into something more profound and aware for that specific individual.

Spiritual awakening can often be facilitated in some instances by a shaman through use of specific ritual. These ceremonies are designed in a specific method so as to help the individual experience a more profound and real connection with their spiritual body. These ceremonies are often associated with psychedelic plants but there is no requirement for that to necessarily be the case. In fact, some of the most powerful rituals are meant to be completed sober, without the use of any substance.

On this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien show, I talk to Ariana Ruiz about her recent experience in a “Shamanic Death Ritual”. Ari is an initiated and trained Toltec shaman who has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the ancient ceremonies of this tradition. On this show, we chat about how rituals such as a death ritual can be used to aid in a person’s spiritual awakening and overall spiritual growth.

On this episode, Ari shares her powerful experience with a Shamanic Death Ritual. If you are looking to explore the possibility of having a similar experience, Ari recommends working with Daniel Stone at the Center of the Conscious Dream. Click here for more info. 

Generally, the ritual lasts several days. On one of the first days, a person enters into a sweat lodge for a number of hours with a specific intention of wanting to release something or experience a healing. The lodge represents the womb of the divine mother. Throughout the hours of being in the sweat lodge, the heat is increased progressively. Each progression of heat is meant to take the participant into a higher level of awareness regarding their own subconscious. Each increased level of heat represents a new level of healing and release.
Over the next two days following this experience, the ritual participants have the experience of digging their own grave, being buried, and emerging to a new birth into the world.
Don’t worry… Your head remains above the ground 😉
The person goes with a witness to an area in the surrounding land where they begin to dig their own grave. Over the process of hours of digging this grave, the person is encouraged to meditate on what they would like to release and how they would like to be reborn.
After the grave has been dug, the individual lies in the grave (head above ground). The witness then begins to shovel dirt onto the individual to simulate the burial experience. As the dirt is placed on the individual, the participant relives the life they have had… They are encouraged to speak to the dirt that is thrown on them to represent a conversation with the divine mother.
According to Ari, this was a powerful method of release and therapy as she released trauma and recollected her life as if this was her final day.
Once the simulated burial is complete, the individual is able to think on the nature of the life they now want to experience. Once that intention is set, the person is able to rise from their grave (with the help of the witness) and experience rebirth into the world.
Powerful stuff.

Following the chat with Ari, I reached out to Daniel Stone to get him on the show. He accepted! On this episode, we talked about the nature of the “conscious dream” and the meaning of reality. Daniel shared some tips on how to connect with the spiritual realm and experience a spiritual awakening that leaves you feeling connected with the divine world and fulfilled in the purpose of your own soul.

Daniel shared the healing power of how to connect with the consciousness of the planet. According to Daniel, it is important to show respect to the planetary forces and universal mind to reflect that this conscious being is alive, loving, and full of wonder. By respecting our world and connecting with these spiritual forces beyond our knowledge, we live in respect and gratitude in a way that will fulfill ourselves at a deeper level. Check it out:

Shamanic healing and experience is a profound method for a person to experience spiritual awakening. Although these sorts of “direct experience” can oftentimes lead to a person having a profound and very “real” experience of the divine, they are by no means the only method for having these experiences. In fact, some of my more incredibly and unexplainable spiritual experiences have been completely sober. It is not uncommon for a person to have trouble fitting together the pieces of a psychedelic experience whereas the sober experience can be a bit easier to actually apply, implement, and piece together into one’s own life.

That being said, I have certainly had some life changing experiences on psychedelic plants. Indeed, many of the most important days of my life were brought about by the use of psychedelic substances. When I first realized I was gay, it was through the use of psychedelic mushrooms. These experiences have shaped and molded me into the person that I am today and their power and influence cannot be discounted. However, the importance of the sober experience with the divine also cannot be emphasized enough. In my opinion, a person should open their minds to the experience of all that life has to offer and rely on their own intuition and experience to navigate through the wide spectrum of spiritual awakening and development. However, a guide such as a shaman can certainly help.

Shamanic Drumming

Shamanic drum meditation is a powerful tool to help you experience a spiritual awakening.

Have you experienced shamanic drum meditation before?

On this episode of the show, I interviewed the Percussion band Amalghemy. These folks are a group of Shamanic Drummers who utilize the power of drumming to facilitate spiritual awakenings, divine guidance, meditation, healing, and a variety of other spiritual gifts. I’ve experienced several of Amalghemy’s live performances in Saint Louis and was stoked to get them on the show.

On this episode, we chat about spiritual awakening, channeling, psychedelics, and the power of shamanic drum meditation. If you want to experience Amalghemy’s music, check out their page on Bandcamp by utilizing this link. All their albums are “pay what you can”.

Spiritual Awakening And Energy

Spiritual awakening is closely tied with this idea of “energy”.

What is “energy” in this sense? This is a word that is thrown around often these days on Instagram feeds, Spiritual Facebook Groups, and on podcasts like mine 😉 What does it actually mean?

Typically, in the “new age” world, when we talk about “energy” we are referring to this idea that all of life is composed of energy. Think about it: in middle school biology we are taught that one calorie = one energy. Einstein famously stated that Energy = Mass x Speed of Light squared. Energy is at the basis of reality. At the core of the observable universe lies some sort of energetic solution: namely a proton/neutron/electron conversation that seems to generate molecules at the molecular level. This is observable in our world, taught in schools, and generally accepted. However, the true implications of “energy” have yet to be fully and totally explored.

Energy underlies all of reality.

We are beings of pure energy. Our very cells are comprised of energy. When we speak to one another, we are able to hear and understand each other because wavelengths are interpreted by our brains by the energy of our voice. Energy is industructable. It can only change forms.

When we understand the implications of our full energetic composition, the world becomes more profound.

Here’s an episode I did with Sheevaun Moran talking about this subject! Are you sick of burning out on your way to achieving your goals? Learning how to enter into an energic alignment is an important aspect of embracing your personal spiritual awakening. When we learn about the energy profiles that affect our bodies, we are able to enjoy the abundance opportunity that life truly can offer.

On this show, Sheevaun offered up two resource: her Free Kickstarter program and her Epic Life Toolkit… Find both by clicking the respective links! Additionally, Sheevaun also mentioned the “Create a Bright Life” organization she runs to help feed homeless individuals living in our cities. By giving back to our communities, we heal generations of trauma and also work towards healing our own souls… We are all connected and we are all one. What we do for another, we do to ourselves.

Sheevaun helps folks increase their productivity and avoid burnout by learning how to enter alignment and access an energetic flow state that magnetizes more success in your direction. On this show, we dive into talking about how energy “works” and how folks often have a tendency to avoid working on difficult aspects of their lives even though these are the “secret” reasons for the difficulties they’re having in a business or relationship scenario. Sheevaun shares some great tips on how to recognize where we are holding ourselves back subconsciously.

Flow state can be a confusing concept in today’s world… There are plenty of fake gurus who pretend to understand how this biochemical process functions. What is “flow state”? Essentially, it is that feeling when everything is going exactly as it should… That moment in time when you feel everything moving in the right direction as you achieve and accomplish exactly what you want from your life. These moments are when we feel “in the zone” or hyper productive… We have all had those moments before and can often find them difficult to access on a whim. By learning how to step into energetic alignment, we unlock this aspect of our spiritual awakening and can beckon these “in the zone” moments at will. How is this possible? On the show, Sheevaun shared two crucial tips:

  1. Movement! Energy that is in motion stays in motion. When we go for a walk, do some Yoga, go to the gym, do some running, practice martial arts, or any form of physical exericse, we increase our energetic alignment and ensure that our “energy” is moving correctly. Exercise has many health benefits but also works at the energetic level of helping us to access flow state more easily. Oftentimes, the way we enter “flow state” is by progressively overcoming ever more increasing obstacles.
  2. Grounding! By centering ourselves in our bodies, we allow ourselves to stay in a state of energetic abundance. In other words, by refusing to let our minds wander outside of ourselves, we ensure that our energetic states of alignment are able to move forward in the right direction!

When we step into this energetic alignment, magic can happen! During a spiritual awakening, experiencing how powerful the law of attraction can work helps us to understand the nature of reality and our full potential to influence the world around us. When we understand how our internal states are expressed in our outer world, we have a better sense of understanding around our potential and our level of responsibility. This is why it is unwise to believe that major problems in our personal lives will not have an impact on our professional career. If there is a significant problem with our relationship (for example), this issue will be reflected in every aspect of our lives. Everything is connected.

Spiritual awakening depends on understanding energy. By unlocking our own energetic potential and overcoming the internal trauma in our lives, we are able to step into a powerful spiritual awakening that helps us to render service to others. When we heal internally, everything on the outside begins to change. This is a beautiful service that we can provide to our fellow humans as we move forward in our understanding around the nature of collective consciousness. Truly, “All is Mind”. When we begin to comprehend that energy is the underlying nature of reality, we see how powerfully our own energy can affect and impact the world. Take advantage of this opportunity to exist in energetic alignment and watch magic unfold in your own life. Do not settle for less! Make it happen! <3

Intuitive Thinking Vs. “Gut Instinct”

Spiritual awakening is often a process of tapping more into your power of intuitive thinking. Let’s talk about what intuitive thinking is all about? Intuitive thinking is not the same as your “gut instinct” or “gut feeling”. In fact, the two are quite different but commonly mistaken as the same thing. Intuitive thinking is trusting that little voice inside your head that speaks from a sense of clarity and almost impulsive truth. It is almost like a form of telepathy or “psychic ability” that seems to gift you a feeling of confidence and knowledge.

Intuitive thinking and “gut instinct” are separate. While your intuitive thinking is that voice of confidence and clarity that exists up in your head, your “gut feeling” is (you guessed it!) something that happens physiologically in your body. Oftentimes, folks follow their gut instinct THINKING that it is the voice of intuition but they are a bit confused in that aspect. Now, don’t get me wrong: if you’re wondering “how to make decisions”, then trusting your gut instinct is also an important part of the equation! If something does not “feel” right inside your gut, then it is worth taking a moment to reconsider.

Here’s where intuitive thinking and “gut instinct” get confused for one another: too often, folks do not make headway on their goals because they are uncomfortable. They are faced by uncomfortable feelings. They interpret this discomfort as their intuition telling them not to move forward. Is intuition real? Absolutely. However, it too often gets mistaken for this “gut instinct” that will almost ALWAYS be giving you uncomfortable feelings when something is scary.

Intuitive thinking is that ability to see between the lines. Some folks are more prone towards intuitive thinking than others… In the Myers and Briggs personality index, two classifications of personality are “intuitive” vs. “sensing”. This describes folks who naturally gravitate towards thinking intuitively vs. those who navigate the world through their senses. Typically, an intuitive person is more prone to being a bit impulsive, exploring creative options, or letting their intuitive nature drive them forward. For an intuitive thinking person, they are living their truth when they are trusting their intuition to guide the way. Conversely, sensing personality types are better suited to trust their senses. These individuals might have a better time with schedules, detail-oriented thinking, pragmatic solutions to problems, math and logic, or other aspects of life that an intuitive thinking person might naturally avoid.

So is an intuitive thinking person “better” than a sensing person? No! Not by any stretch… Again, when an intuitive thinking person is trusting their intuition, they are living their truth. It will feel more natural for them… They will find better solutions to problems when they trust their intuitive thinking vs. their logic/data-driven senses. However, on the other side of the house, a sensing individual will thrive the more they trust their senses and the more they navigate through life using that medium. Unfortunately, the modern western world seems to place more value and emphasis on the sensing/data/logic driven personality type, encouraging intuitive thinking individuals to utilize that method of reasoning. However, these folks will find themselves better suited to intuitive thinking.

Astrology And Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening seems to have a connection with Astrology… How so? Spiritual awakening is essentially the realization of our spiritual nature. When this happens, a person often becomes more curious about their world, their relationship with the planet, and how they relate to their fellow humans. We often find ourselves exploring a variety of resources having to do with our inter-connectivity with our environment, the planet, and ultimately with the universe itself.

Astrology comes into play when we realize that our connection with nature extends into the stars.

Astrology gets a bit of a bad reputation. Why is this the case? There are hordes of charlatans who are waiting for folks to become curious in this topic purely so that they can start exploiting people without providing any actual value. Unfortunately, there is a long history of fake psychics and astrologers taking advantage of people who are genuinely looking for answers to these confusing and important topics. However, these “fake gurus” should not deter us from regarding Astrology as a topic that carries weight. In fact, Astrology has been studied in a variety of different forms for thousands of years. Great thinkers like Newton, Galileo, and Benjamin Franklin studied Astrology. In fact, many great minds throughout history have studied intensely these topics often deemed as “quackery”.

Spiritual awakening can lead to a curiosity in topics such as Astrology because we seek answers to the ultimate question of “what is going on?” here in this reality…

When we go far enough down the Astrology rabbit hole, we begin to understand that the planets, asteroids, and stars in our sky have an actual energetic impact. It makes sense, doesn’t it? if the Moon controls the tides, affects our health, and has an impact on hormones, then wouldn’t the planet Jupiter (far larger than our Moon) also have some sort of impact? Honestly, to me, it passes the “logic” test.

In fact, the idea of Astrology is that these planets and astrological happenings have SUCH an impact as to be almost above our ability to discern what is happening… They are so far beyond subtle that they become impossible to ignore when you know what is happening. It is a macro-scale energetic impact that permeates every aspect of our lives.

Does this mean that Astrology can predict our future? No, that is not the case… However, it can show us our paths of least resistance and where our energy might be best applied. We can build our schedules around Astrological circumstances to ensure that our energy is being applied in the best places. Doing so can allow us to understand ourselves and our universe at a greater degree. Similar to all things in our world, Astrology can be used as an excuse for in-action or blaming others. For example, a “Mercury Retrograde” is often uses as an excuse for why a person’s life is not happening the way that they would want… Mercy Retrograde periods refer to a time when the planet Mercury is moving in reverse to its normal orbit. Allegedly, this causes disruption in emotions, communication, technology, travel, and more… Many people use this period as an excuse for why they cannot achieve their goals, have successful relationships, or make headway in their business. Conversely, a retrograde period is actually just a time for reflection on the specific areas being affected… In other words, a Mercury Retrograde does not mean that your relationships will suffer from poor communication. Instead, it suggests that this is energetically a time for rethinking how we communicate in our relationships. Once again, we see how our beliefs about a situation change the outcomes of what happens and how we are affected.

Astrology Of 2019

The Astrology of 2019 is of keen interest to many folks who experience a spiritual awakening…

We are looking at the cosmos trying to discern our areas of least resistance as we try to navigate these confusing times.

I brought master Astrologer Rachel Goldmeier onto the show to talk about the Astrology of 2019… Check it out!

Rachel and I talk about how Astrology can be a fantastic tool for understanding yourself… When it comes to experiencing a spiritual awakening, Astrology can be a wonderful tool for analyzing what has been happening in your life and seeing how these patterns all overlap with astrological influences that we normally might write-off as coincidence. A massive part of experiencing a spiritual awakening is beginning to see how the universe is connected to you. Ultimately, a person begins to understand that they ARE the universe… All is mind and everything is within you.

Astrology in 2019 is quite interesting. For the majority of the year, the planet Jupiter will be in retrograde. Historically, we have seen times of Jupiter retrograde as an energetically potent time for shifting belief systems particularly around religion, spirituality, philosophy, or political thought. In fact, here in January of 2019, we are already seeing a preview of what might happen over the course of 2019: there are many countries all over the world experiencing a variety of political turmoils and re-thinking how we interact with our governing bodies. For example, in the United States a long-overdrawn government shutdown over Trump’s ambitions to build a border wall with Mexico have left many Americans re-thinking their relationship with their system of government. Meanwhile, in France protests against high cost-of-living have raged for a few weeks. There is similar disgruntlement in Norway and Sweden over cost of housing. All over the world, we are beginning to get an idea of how this year-long Jupiter retrograde might shift our belief systems at the collective level. Again, Astrology tends to have an influence at a macro-level vs. showing up in subtle ways. A Jupiter retrograde is anything but subtle by its very nature of being one of the largest bodies in our solar system.

The sign of Capricorn is also an important topic here in 2019 Astrology… The sign of Capricorn is traditionally associated with career, ambition, and taking awhile to mature and formulate. The planets Saturn and Pluto will meet in the sign of Capricorn towards the end of 2019. When this happens, it will send a wave of energy that almost “activates” a lot of young folks of the Millennial generation who have these same planets in their birth-chart. Put simply: the sign of Capricorn is an important sign for many individuals in the Millennial generation. As the planets begin to meet-up in this sign towards the end of 2019 (especially when Jupiter joins Saturn and Pluto in early 2020), the Millennial generation will energetically feel more empowered in aspects of career and personal ambition… Again, at a macro-level, young folks might find themselves feeling more empowered to accomplish their goals… Due to the nature of Saturn and Pluto, goals having to do with changing old systems and re-shaping society will be more achievable. This is an exciting time for the younger generation. Much to explore!
