It is a joy to be alive in this body and to witness the miracles happening in the world. Thank you universe for gifting me this lifetime to weave together the dualities of my human mind to find the way to the centre of my divine heart. Thank you for teaching me to love myself and others and to witness our divine expression out into the world.
How do you wake each morning? What is it that you are saying to yourself? Remember your thoughts are energy tools for creating your reality. Neuroscientist Candace Pert was nominated for a Nobel prize in 1970 for her works on opiate receptors. In her book, Molecules of Emotion, she established the bimolecular basis for our emotions and how the body and mind function as a part of an interconnected system. She scientifically showed how your emotions create a cascade of different chemicals that effect every cell in your body. Neuropeptides, chemicals secreted by the brain that mediate mood and behaviour, were even signalling cancer cells to grow, travel or metastasize. This research became the scientific bases for a field of medicine in psychoneuroimmunology or as Dr. Pert likes to call it psychoimmunoendocrinology. In essence, the cells of your body are eavesdropping on every thought and conversation you have with yourself and others to create ease or dis-ease. Be mindful of your thoughts, words and deeds as these are the building blocks for the reality you live. Even if you don’t believe the words you are saying, keep repeating them until you do. Quantum physics reveals that the entire universe is alive with consciousness and that all things are connected. Our thoughts and feelings affect reality even at a subatomic level. The more we share love, wisdom, grace, health and abundance the more these things will flourish in our lives. This change must happen first within ourselves, so then we can project outward into the collective, making wiser choices and creating healthier communities.
"What you give, so do you receive." ~ Luke 6:38
“Blessed are the merciful (grateful), for they will be shown mercy (grace).” ~ Matthew 5:7
Ahhh it is great to be back blogging again after a short recess of shining light on dark agendas. In being open, transparent and stating the obvious, we help others break free in an “The Emperor Has No Clothes” type scenario. Shine light. Share love. Speak truth and Be the Change. Today we shift to a more empowering topic of designing your destiny in the Cosmic Compass.
The Cosmic Compass photo attached is the original quick sketch shown in this previous video. Certainly, this diagram with lack of curb appeal is not an artistic award-winner but combining personal development and astrology into a visual maybe a helpful tool. It is a check list to be sure you are on track with your star alignment. The stars incline but it is you who designs, your unique expression of divine. Many of us have been taught or talked out of our true nature and surrendered our power to a consciousness less than our own. Perhaps this compass objectively helps you realign to your power.
To get the most benefit from this compass...
1. Fill out the questions below from each of the houses.
2. Take your compass to an astrologer for fine tuning and calibration to fill in any detail you’ve not been able to remember.
At the moment you were born, the planets are in such a unique position in the sky that it doesn’t happen again for 25,000 years. Each house equates to a section in the sky and resonants with energies of certain constellations and planets that are infused into you. The goal in exploring the full compass is to find Yourself! It liberates you to shine your light and in turn you liberate others to shine theirs too. You find your loves through Venus, your brilliance in Uranus, your inspired actions in Mars, your vitality in the Sun, your emotions in the Moon, your mind in Mercury, your structure in Saturn, your dreams in Neptune, your wounds in Chiron, your abundance in Jupiter, your transformation in Pluto, and finally and most essentially your evolutionary intent in your North Node. The house is the stage, the planet is the actor and the sign or constellation is the costume you wear in this lifetime. You already know these things on a soulful level, following the stars just helps bring you home with greater clarity and certainty in your direction. Imagine limitless possibilities to answer honestly from your soul. Pretend your fairy god mother arrives to ask you to design your life, create it to be the magnificence of YOU. The breadth of the landscape rests soulfully on the scope of your imagination.
"The passage of the mythological hero……is essentially inward-into the depths where obscure resistances are overcome and long lost forgotten powers are revivified, to be made available for the transfiguration of the world."
~ Joseph Campbell. The Hero With A Thousand Faces.
House 1. How do you present to the world? What qualities would others use to describe you? Does this fit with your view of self?
House 2. What is it you value? What is wealth for you? Is it a particular figure in your bank account or is it in your family, health or social status? What makes you feel valued?
House 3. What is your preferred way to communicate? What kind of relationship do you have with your local community and your siblings?
House 4. What does family or home look like to you? Detail the physical structure and the psychological comforts of the home you love.
House 5. Where is your creativity and how can you use this to do what you love? Is it with food, animals, stock markets, computers, communication, healing, children….
House 6. What three health habits can you foster and what three habits can you release for your greatest vitality? Is a daily schedule useful for you?
House 7. How do you develop partnerships? What activities do you love to do? How can you cater to your beautiful heart? What qualities do you love in mate?
House 8. Outside of the obvious transformations of birth, death, sex and taxes, how do you transform you and the world around you? What is your magic?
House 9. Re-assess your beliefs, higher learning, religious and spiritual ideals. Do you like to travel, teach or publish your works? Why aren’t you doing it?
House 10. What is the career or legacy you love? How does it look at the top for you? How do you know when you know you’ve arrived?
House 11. Is it important for you to be giving a service to humanity? What does that service look like? How can you foster a relationship with groups for this purpose?
House 12. Detail your hidden dreams, desires and fears. The subconscious informs the conscious mind in meditation, silent retreat or in dreams. Are you a dream catcher?
“The masters live in a world of transformation, the masses live in a world of gains and loss.” ~ John Demartini. JD
“Don’t let yourself get lost in your loss. Open the lid to your light and let it illuminate your way. There are other opportunities and greater wealth waiting for you."
~ The Akashic Tarot
An astrology natal chart is a pictorial example of the dualities in our existence. House 1 represents you and correlates to the Eastern horizon. House 7 is complimentary opposite and represents your mate’s traits in the West. House 10, at the North, represents how you are out into the public world and is opposite to house 4 which represents your private home in the South. These compass directions are sometimes called the Cardinal Cross or the Cross of Matter. A spiritual mentor, John Demartini suggests that once we learn to simultaneously, synchronize all the pairs of complimentary opposites, we find love. In this flavour of thought, there is a rose quartz heart (representing unconditional love) at the soulful centre of the photo. Here is where all opposites integrate at the point of ascension. The ability to unite all the colours in the prism into one white light beam, allows you rise out of your natal chart, untethered by the density of earth into a “christ-like consciousness”. This immanence into love and transcendence out of the cross is not an easy feat for a living mortal but certainly 'enlightenment' has a wide appeal. Some are dying for this opportunity.
Dear God, (Universe/Source/Spirit/Jesus/Muhammad/Elvis or to whom ever represents the source of all light and love in the "Grand Organized Design" ~JD. Best to aim for the widest receiver, to cover the most distance for the home run. )
Thank you for bringing us to this place of growth and expansion. The wounds of our human heart open us to the divine healing waters of your love and wisdom. Many of us fall to our knees in humble grace to empty our vessel in order to receive. Help us release the illusions of death that have kept us disconnected from our cosmic heritage and seed the transformation of eternal love and grace. Let us share the unity of divinity and to use the light of love to bring us home. Amena.
(“a” is universal love sound so surrounding “men” with love feels like purposeful ending)

“Man may know himself and so know the cosmos, by being aware that he is an image of Atum (atom) and of the Cosmos. He differs from other living things in that he possesses Mind. Through Mind he may commune with the Cosmos, which is the second god- and by thought he may come to the Knowledge of Atum the One-God. As above so below."
