A Thought on Time

I was traveling through my world, gazing at the big sky surrounding me in it's clear blue. I reached towards the blue. As I did so I was able to reach through with my hands. I hoisted the rest of my body, half in the world I knew and half in the new space, through the blue. As the tips of my toes left the old familiar world behind it formed a bouncing ball. Simultaneously the new space opened up to be as large as what I believed my old world had been.

This is a true story that happened in a meditative trance. It got me to thinking ...

The concept of time can and is confusing. We believe it moves forward in a linear fashion, and therefore theoretically should be accessed backwards in the same way. I think that the problem is we forget that linear isn't just horizontal. It can be vertical. Often when peoples lives begin to 'feel' like they're in the groove ... or as some call it "in the flow" ... it's actually a vertical movement upwards. The problem with backwards is we aren't very good at that skill. Try walking around a room quickly. Now try walking around the same room backwards quickly. Even when we drive we never back up for long distances. If time can move vertically, perhaps when we move backwards it's too difficult to find a groove to stay in? Well, that's just my thought.

How To Survive Uranus Conjunct Mars

The energy the past few weeks has been erratic and aggressive for so many that I thought
- What's up Mars?

Sure enough when I checked transiting Uranus and Mars are conjunct

... in other words they are sharing the same space
... this can be quite a challenge for some of us mere mortals
... it's like a full moon times 1000!

So where and how is this coming out in individual lives? Well I'm about to tell you, and hopefully you can ,if not relax, at least be able to say "oh that's just that crazy Uranus Mars conjunction again".

As you may be aware your chart is made up with every planet, expressed in what are called houses.

The good part of Mars is it gives us energy, grit and a well defined backbone in life. The not-so-good part of Mars is that it can give us an excess of energy causing bumps, bruises or even more serious accidents, an overly aggressive attitude, leap before we look, anger, frustration and even depression. It's expression is dependent on how it's effecting your birthchart and how willing you are to be aware and perhaps adjust how you're using your energy.

The good part of Uranus is it gives us that spark inside that is unique only to us. It's that part of us that screams
"I just have to be ME"

The not-so good part of Uranus is sometimes we just want to fit in with the status quo. Uranus will say
"I have plans for you"

and the more we dig our heels in the more Uranus pulls the rug from under our feet. I have to tell you

-"It's a FUTILE battle"-

Uranus is going to win, you are going to be all that you can be, NO exceptions!

So what am I suggesting? - Take the good of both and go for it! You have to anyway ...unless of course you enjoy bumps, bruises and carpets flying out from under your feet. So if you have been dealing with aggression, anger, depression feeling like the rug is being pulled up you might want to do something about that and change for the better.

Everyday Illusions

As I was driving this morning I was thinking about masks. Not about mask making, but the masks people wear. Whether it's groovy sunglasses, make-up, or even the car we drive.

What happens if we strip away the mask?

Although we wear masks all the time we don't necessarily consciously have an intent.

What happens if we intentionally create our mask?

Is who we are indicative by our make-up, clothes and possessions?

When we think of life transformations we believe it is always instigated by something forceful and greater than ourselves. However, life is continually transforming us.
Life is a tranformational travelogue.

Sometimes the greatest transformations take place from the most everyday occurences.

Sometimes all it takes is the time to sit still for a moment.

Adventures Down The Rabbit Hole - So Far

“I don’t understand you,” said Alice. “It’s dreadfully confusing!”
“That’s the effect of living backwards,” the Queen said kindly: “it always makes one a little giddy at first—”
“Living backwards!” Alice repeated in great astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”
“—but there’s one great advantage in it, that one’s memory works both ways.”
“I’m sure mine only works one way,” Alice remarked. “I can’t remember things before they happen.”
“It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards,” the Queen remarked.
—Lewis Carroll,
Through the Looking-Glass

In my travels so far I tapped into events happening, I think past, present and future ... you tell me! Here's a somewhat edited version of events so far:

Oh Sophie!!!!I just heard Louise Arbor interviewed and they asked her if she felt she had succeeded in making a difference in her life and she answered that she gaged her success by whethere she had made a difference in relation to the opportunities presented to her and she was very thankful for the opportunities she had been given.I heard this and thought of you. My thought was, bless ya for not waiting to be presented with anything. You just forge ahead.Thanks for making me THINK!!!!crystal:)

To Crystal:
I was peeing, and thinking WHAT AM I DOING? (not about the peeing) Why am I doing the blog? What is this whole thing about? Am I crazy ... am I creating a split in my personnality ... am I really just avoiding my life and that it hasn't turned out the way I thought it would? And then I came down stairs and checked the gmail and read your comment, thanks I needed that!
So now that I read all sorts of incredible quantum stuff this morning I'm off to a bookstore to try and find "The Yoga of Time Travel" by Fred Alan Wolf. I put a link on Quantum Revolution to his site if you want to get the brain juices bubbling.
6 days to go
xxx miss ya
*Hey maybe we can figure out time travel, that would cut down on airplane costs!
**Are you laughing??? But I'm serious!

To Crystal:
decided to meditate, it was so amazing I was in the middle of the ocean going up and down with the waves
then there was lightcoming through the top of my head
I started to think of the houses, our houses
and then the name of your organization HIT me
the idea behind it is like landscape, taking care of the gardens - but the gardens are childhood
think about it

To Sophie:
YOU ARE CREEPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been emailing this woman about desiging landscapes for
children...... I've recently joined this new forum and it's been the
hot topic of discussion since I got here.
I will forward some it to you.
I'm creeped out!!!

To Crystal:
HA! COOOOOL! That is shiver-down-the-spine worthy! You know I'm going to have to try that again ... it is almost time travel - psyche travel. Definitely coool!

"Further, consider that having a two-way memory could lead, as the queen suggests, to distinct advantages. For example, it might help you deal with synchronicities and experience of déjà vu, avoid health problems, make significant predictions about your life, and offer many other benefits, as may become clear as this book unfolds."
