Here piggy, piggy, piggy

The year of the earth pig promises to be a good one.

The new year has come and gone. Except not entirely. The Chinese new year is on 5th February, ringing in the year of the earth pig. Whether you look at the coming year from a zodiac perspective or an energetic perspective or from the more grounded perspective of what is happening around the world the year is come is about physical abundance. Specifically it’s about how you organise the physical aspects of your life so they support you to be your most expansive self.

Pigs are all about physical abundance and earth is exactly about being grounded. As the energy of the year to come begins to pick up speed in a (thankfully) more positive direction it’s clear the challenge will be to find practical ways to re-align your life so you can ensure abundance flows in easily. While energetic, spiritual and emotional abundance are an important part of life leading to fulfilment and inspiration this is not what this year is about. This year is more about getting all of that spiritual abundance that exists in the Universe into the physical.

Naturally when we talk about physical abundance the first thing that comes to mind is money. More money is always a good and useful thing but this isn’t just about more money. It’s about how you’re organising your life to expand the financial flow in your life. This could mean a change or advancement in your career but is more likely to mean creating new structures in your life so your money works for you more than you’re working for your money. That is true abundance because it means your money is arriving with grace and ease.

Money is definitely one form of physical support.

Supportive relationships are one of the richest forms of physical abundance.

Another important part of physical abundance is the support networks in your life. The more mutually expansive relationships you have in your life the more truly abundant you are. Not least of all because these kinds of healthy relationships are a huge boost to your well-being, as has been shown in many studies. So if your relationships are currently more of a drain on you than an expansive support then it might be time to learn how to create more interdependent relationships for yourself. The litmus test of relationships is this – is it easier for you to be Who You Truly Are when you’re by yourself or when you’re with that person? Any relationship which makes it harder for you to be Who You Truly Are is a drain on your abundance.

Then of course society itself is a form of physical abundance. There are lots of people doing it tough right now and that is highlighting what this current transition is all about. Moving through it to a more expansive state is what this year is all about but many current social structures will not support that unless they, also, transform. For example, the current government shutdown in the US is a great example of what used to work. A century or two ago having someone use independent tactics which could be summed up by ‘my way or the highway’ was effective, especially when those they were using these tactics against were relatively powerless. Whether or not it can be used from one arm of government against another remains to be seen, though it is doubtful. Yet from the viewpoint of the evolution of the collective consciousness perhaps it’s not so surprising what is happening.

Society can either create physical abundance through expansive exchange or can create stress and poverty by creating structures that push people into being out-of-exchange.

The US is, or at least was, the most powerful and abundant nation on earth. So naturally it would be the focus on the current transition and the required shift in organisational structure which goes from moving from a codependent collective consciousness to an interdependent one. A bipartisan solution to the shutdown has been offered yet hasn’t been accepted. In the next few months things are going to get interesting. Either the ‘my way or the highway’ tactics will escalate, up to and including the possibility of the rise of authoritarianism, or those who hold a more interdependent or at least cooperative stance will stay focused and bring things back into alignment.

Although it may not seem likely right now I’m betting the latter is what ends up happening.

Positive wave pixabay
Riding the positive wave means building physical support structures or organisation that supports Who You Truly Are.

Not because that’s what I’d obviously prefer but because that is what on the side of the tide of history. I’m just not sure how messy things are going to get first. What I am sure about is that if you’re to take advantage of the wave of positive energy which is coming and avoid the messiness of the current transition in your own life, you need to focus on all the structures in your own life, especially those in the physical. Strengthen those that support Who You Truly Are and let go of or re-design those that don’t. Then this coming wave of positive energy which looks likely to last for twenty, if not forty, years will take you to heights you haven’t yet even glimpsed.

Positive, powerful co-creative wave

As the collective cWave surfingonsciousness shifts further towards a co-creative existence we have a powerful opportunity to accelerate our own growth and expansion. The coming wave of energy has the capacity to lift all of us to a greater level of co-creative power than ever before – as long as we’re ready and aligned to it. We’ve been expecting this wave for some time and, as it comes closer, a little more detail would be useful as each stage of the wave tends to require a different alignment – just ask any surfer. I’ve added some links to some videos that’ll help you align to each phase.

Phase 1: As the wave is building the water level seems to drop and the motion of the water goes backwards. This is similar to the extremely low tide that occurs before any tsunami. At this point you need to point your surfboard towards the shore and paddle like crazy to build momentum for what’s coming. This is the phase we’re in now. It may feel like things are going backwards but it’s just the polarity building towards what comes next. Now is the time to increase the amount of energy you’re putting into the projects that’ll take you to your next level of expansion.  This phase will probably last until about August of this year. Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uQFfpe6C18 to watch David Tennant (former Dr Who) sum up this current period for you.

Phase 2: The water stops dropping and the flow begins to reverse. This is the time to get up on your board and make sure you’re probably balanced. That means you want to ensure that any systems you’ve put into place for your future projects are having the effects – both direct and indirect – that you want them to. This period will probably cover the latter part of 2017 until the later part of 2018. Click here http://www.ted.com/talks/jeanne_gang_buildings_that_blend_nature_and_city to learn about how everything in our lives, including the buildings we live in, can be a system for interdependency and co-creation.

Phase 3: This is the fun phase that most of us focus on, but it’s important to remember we can’t get there without the momentum of phase 1 and the alignment of phase 2. In this phase the wave is moving through powerfully. It’s not only lifted our surfboard, it’s got enough strength and vigour that we can do all that cool stuff – shooting tubes or whatever it is that surfers do. This is the phase in which all your creative endeavours will manifest with ease, grace and joy. It’s an incredible time – and one we’re all looking forwards to. The main challenge here is to increase our capacity for the positive, for joy and pleasure. This period will probably start either late 2018 or early 2019 and continue for at least four or five years. This is the time we’ve all been working towards, to make sure we’re positioned to make the most of it.

Phase 4: This is the last phase that comes with mastery of all the previous phases. Things are now easy and we’re able to simply go with what we’ve created. It’s important in this phase to really enjoy all the fruits of our co-creations as the new cycle will be coming soon. We will move into this phase in the mid 2020s. Things are going to be good for a long while. Yay! Click here https://www.ted.com/talks/don_norman_on_design_and_emotion to learn some design techniques not only for your work and creations, but your life itself.

If you align yourself to the wave that’s coming, with special attention to each phase, your life will expand over the next few years to a level you won’t have conceived of before now. It’s going to be exciting!  We wish you joy of the journey.

What nail polish and water on the moon prove

moon and oceanAbundance is not just a state of mind, it is whole skill set.  Part of the skill set of abundance starts with knowing that there is always a way, there is always an answer.  In fact, it is knowing that the answer already exists, if we’re able to shift our perspective enough to see it.

Here are two recent examples of this:

My sister realised the ambition of a lifetime last week and left for a trip to Antartica.  So cool! (Literally and metaphorically.)  The night before she was due to get up at the crack of dawn to get on a plane to New Zealand, from where her boat will leave, she wanted to send a card to some relatives of her husband.  All good, but the difficulty was she wanted to paste a four-leaf clover into the card before she sent it, and she couldn’t find any glue.  It’s probably somewhere in my niece’s room, but as my niece does teenage housekeeping her whole room is a bombsite and the glue may or may not one day be excavated.  So my sister was getting anxious about getting this small job done before she left.

I happened to be staying with her that night. I didn’t have any glue with me. It’s not something I usually carry, and it was too late to go to any of the shops.  So what to do?

Get stressed and hunt through my niece’s bedroom?  Give up and leave the job incomplete?  Or assume there’s an answer and let it come to you?

I chose the last option.  A minute later I suggested she use nail polish, which my niece had and knew where that was. It worked very well.

This is why this is a skill of abundance.  When we realise there’s always a way there’s never any need for the answer to be ‘no’.  There’s always a way for it to be ‘yes’.

In the same way, I remember when I was young that the scientists considered it impossible that there was water to be found anywhere in the solar system except on the earth.  This was one of the largest obstacles to the thought of humanity having a permanent presence anywhere except on this planet.  But now they’re finding water is more abundant than they ever believed possible.  When they started looking for ways to make such a venture possible the ways began to turn up.  It’s even on the moon, and a new satellite is going to find out just how much.

Ritual of Cleansing and Release

cleansingandreleaseThis ritual is an application of the Law of Exchange. Rituals work because they are like living symbols.  It’s their symbolic content which directly impacts our subconscious but it is the living quality of these symbols that makes them so powerful because it is that which effects our Body’s consciousness.

This ritual is particularly helpful when we’re wanting to release something that has affected our body, like some old trauma, or something we’re finding it hard to let go of.  The reason we often find it hard to let go of things is because we know, as soon as we do, something else is going to turn up in its place.  Unconsciously we resist letting go because we don’t know what’s going to turn up next.  It’s a case of ‘better the devil we know, than the devil we don’t’.  By using this ritual we set clear guidelines as to what is going to turn up next.  It’s one of the reasons this is so effective.

For this ritual you will need:

Pen and paper

A lighted candle

A bowl of warm water (you can put some essential oils or rose petals in it) and a washcloth

A safe warm space  (This ritual may be done naked.)

Prepare by tearing the paper in half from top to bottom.  This will leaves us with a left-hand-side piece of paper, and a right-hand-side piece of paper.

The left represents the past.  Write on the left-hand-side piece of paper up to (meaning no more than) 5 things you wish to release.  The reason there is only 5 is because this ritual works and if you release too many things at once it will create chaos in your life.  You can always do the ritual again later.  Remember, you can grow easily and with grace.  Give yourself the grace of doing so.

The right represents the future.  So then on the right-hand-side piece of paper write one (1) appropriate thing you wish to receive in exchange for each thing released.  We should have an equal number of things on both pieces of paper.  Something appropriate doesn’t mean the exact opposite of the thing we release, but something meaningful and appropriate for where we’re at in our journey.  For example, if we release guilt we may wish to receive peace or serenity, or confidence or power.  Or if we release greed, we may want to receive clarity around your purpose, or unconditional love, or abundance.

Once we have our lists we’re ready to proceed. The ritual is simplicity itself.  You can dress it up, if that would feel more meaningful for you.

To perform the ritual, light the candle. Burn the left-hand-side piece of paper to release those things you want to release.

Then do a ritual washing from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes. This is the pattern in which things tend to leave our bodies. A ritual washing can be done with the bowl and the washcloth, or even in the shower.  The main thing is to wash yourself with focused intention that you are washing away the things you want to release.

When we’ve finished our ritual wash,we burn the right-hand-side piece of paper. We do this with the intention of opening to our desires.

Tip out the water when you’re done. Some people report the water seems heavier at the end. Perhaps it is from the weight of all those things released.  That is something you’ll have to make up your own mind about.

The only thing that remains to be done is to watch for the changes to flow through your life, and to look forward to our positive outcome.

Lollipops have a higher power

The Temple of Good Will

Once I got to Sao Paulo in Brazil I then flew out again to the nation’s capital of Brazilia. After all the talk I have been doing about Emily Simpson’s labyrinth project for Centennial Park the first thing they did was show me their own labyrinth.

This is a simple 7 spiral labyrinth set inside the most remarkable building. It is a building dedicated to good will, a  modern day pyramid with the most enormous quartz on its peak.

Then I did my talk at the Brazilian Society for Psycho-Oncology to a very select group of people drawn from all over the country. Here is a short exerpt from the talk:

The complexity of fractals enable simple principles to be applied with ever-increasing options or opportunities, through growth, which in fractal terms is called iteration – yet another repetition of the base pattern. At the same time, a fractal is robust, maintaining its coherence throughout every opportunity. Many dynamic systems, through finding the most efficient method of networking, will start to form complex patterns that will take on fractal characteristics.

This is now being used in the analysis of cancer cells. Analysis of the fractal dimension of a cancer cell is not only showing great promise of early detection, but is also showing the ability to diagnose the cell-type with a great degree of rapidity and reliability.

Of interest in the field of psychology, fractals are an effective model for neural modelling. Our brains have fractal organisation. Fractal processes and properties occur at many levels of neural organizations and performance, and are functionally relevant. This is especially true with the growing understanding of the brain as not just simply the functioning of individual neurons, but the functioning of whole neural networks.

It was extremely well received and we hope to see a growing interest in the work of Fractology as a result. If you’d like a copy of the whole text of the talk (not that I stuck to it very well) please email me and I’ll be happy to send you a copy.

Ruth bathing her sore toe on our walk before I examined it.

After the talk we went to Pirenopolis via John of God. There’s some very powerful, raw energies in that place. At Pirenopolis we were able to relax and enjoy the Brasilian countryside. However, Ruth who was with us was in pain from an injury a couple of weeks previously. She asked me to have a look and when I examined it, it was clear her big toe was broken. She’d been to the doctor but he hadn’t touched it and it was left unsplinted.

All I had with me were some bandaids and some lollipop sticks. But they were enough to splint her big toe and get her some relief. Which proves two things:

1. There’s always an answer.

2. Lollipops have a higher power.
