Numerology for 2014: Ride this River Wild!

Really great article on the numerology of 2014, along with some wise advice from Yogi Bhajan. Enjoy!

2014 Predictions

Well, it’s that time of year again when anyone and everyone tries to predict or absorb others’ predictions of what’s in store for the next twelve months. I’d like to begin by quoting Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities”:

“IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way- in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

Between the first and second sentences of this post, I needed to take an emergency shower due to being spontaneously eaten alive by a renegade mosquito (in late December) while I was listening to Drunvalo discuss how global warming has now led us to an imminent Ice Age. Just as he mentioned 12,000 years of pollen and then not seeing pollen for a 90,000 year cycle, I felt the first nips of a mosquito. By the time I finished the video and started typing this post, I was covered in huge red welts, just like summer. Oh, the irony…

I had read this same Ice Age material in Whitley Strieber’s “The Key” — that global warming switches to rapid global cooling to -50 degrees F in 72 hours. Actually in “The Key,” it happens even faster, and he wrote that book before science backed up his “message from the mysterious stranger.” I guess what I’m getting at is that change can happen fast. I continue to see the image of the Eight of Wands card from Robin Woods’ Tarot deck, and to this day, I don’t know if that image is metaphorical for sudden, Divine Intervention, or a literal depiction of meteors from Comet Ison’s debris field. Maybe both, maybe neither.

As I titled an earlier post, “Eight of Wands: Expect the Unexpected.” “Eight of Wands energy defies control, but we can influence how we embrace the bizarre twists of “Fate” headed our way. Whether subtle and transient or TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it), we can ride these waves of change and, yes, even celebrate Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.” I took my sudden onslaught of mosquito bites amidst talk of a dire and imminent Ice Age as little Faery pinches and reminders of how much our consciousness, intention and directed energy can influence outcomes.

What do I see happening in 2014? Who knows?? Like 2013, layers upon layers of competing agendas exist, along with an unpredictable global awakening to new ideas and opportunities for creative expression. I was never so glad to leave behind a month as I was when November 30, 2013 rolled over into December 1, 2013. I swear, November 2013 was the longest month ever. It truly felt like the Groundhog Day movie, with constant battles and revisions in Dreamtime.

Something about November seemed like a hinge point where if we made it past that, then the scales tipped in favor of easier and freer living. Not to say that corporate fascists and psychopathic “leaders” won’t continue to attempt all manner of dystopic schemes, but their easiest window of opportunity appears to have passed. As we move into early 2014, I suspect an uptick in outer events, whether natural, fabricated or amplified. I see the writing on the wall, and it reads rather like Browning’s “My Last Duchess.” On the other hand, I personally and professionally know so many amazing people implementing on the ground (sometimes in the ground) creative, local solutions in localities all around the world that I feel optimism and excitement for this next year.

I pulled two Faery Wicca Tarot cards that wanted to jump out for commentary. First, “The Six of Tine” (pronounced “chin” and corresponding to Wands and the Fire Sign):

Six of Tine: The Power of the Heart.
Glory, victory and triumph. A personal or a vicarious experience of adulation and fame, a sense of victory with all adversaries conquered and all blockages overcome. But the triumph will eventually come to an end. Glory will shift to some different meaning, perhaps less glorious and more perilous.

[Special messages from the Faeries are included in this deck’s booklet in italics and are as follow for the Six of Tine.]

Stand strong.
Speak strong.
Dance strong.
Act strong.
Rest strong.
See strong.
Play strong.
Work strong.
Love strong.
Believe strong.
Powerful Anand!”

Anand means “perfect bliss,” and I take this as a reminder to look for that inward spiritual strength and joy, which transcends what’s happening outside ourselves. Yes, in this world of Hegelian dialectic (Problem, Reaction, Solution), things may reach a fever pitch and then just at the last moment, Relief arrives seemingly out of nowhere, riding a white horse. The solutions will at first seem miraculous and wonderful, but after the shine wears off, they will probably reveal truer and less enticing colors.

That doesn’t mean you must “reject the gift.” It just means to remember your real strength, practice non-attachment, and don’t devote your inner life to external (and thus out of your control) events or offers. Consider carefully before signing away more rights or resources, whether for convenience or security. Your true security is not of this world, and real convenience happens when you align with the natural flow and abundance always available to you.

The suit of Tine (the Wands) represents fire, passion and spiritual awareness. In traditional Tarot decks the Six of Wands means “Liberation!” and that’s certainly on offer in 2014. If Liberation is your true goal, though, you’ll probably need to pinch yourself a few times to get back on track, since whatever “solutions” arrive to this year’s pressing problems are likely to distract. Big time. A tool does not become your master unless you invite and invoke its mastery over you by giving it unwarranted power and worship.

The second card I pulled was:

3 Máthair Bandia Eiré: The Mother Goddess Eiré.
The wisdom of the feminine principle in life is at work in your life. Open to the fertility of the land and find abundance in your life. Allow creativity to flow through you. A call to return to nature. In quiet meditation, open to the stars above your head to receive the wisdom of the Goddess. Align with your inner child and find bliss.”

Whenever I pull cards, I look for crossovers, so the double bliss seems highly significant. The great scholar of Ancient Myth, Joseph Campbell reminded us, “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” When Campbell speaks of following your bliss, he refers to that inner passion that makes you feel alive and enthusiastic like a child. Work seems like play, and you feel what Abraham-Hicks calls “tapped in, turned on, and tuned in.” As the Faery Wicca Tarot puts it, “Allow creativity to flow through you.”

But we also have work to do in 2014. We have allowed people to poison our planet, often through our own complacency, laziness or greed. We’ve allowed further butchering of the feminine principle through purposeful mutilation of the female form like applauding preemptive mastectomies of healthy breasts; photoshopping of voluptuousness into adolescent boy “bodies”; and violently raping Mother Earth through fracking and drilling. We’ve allowed patriarchal war agendas to hold our planet captive, and we’ve allowed MonSatan et. al. to continue perverting the seed, the very essence of life itself. In 2014, we will likely see a much stronger push for not only genetically modified seeds, but also technologically modified humans. The transhuman agenda to merge humans with machines will likely kick up several notches in the next twelve months, since the overall plan reminds behind schedule. Artificial Intelligence will replace human ingenuity more and more, especially as public schools, GMO’s, chemtrails, propaganda and poisons work to lower the human IQ. 2014 could be the year we turn the tide.

I suggest that 2014 is the year in which we must turn the tide, beginning with cleaning up our dying oceans. If we don’t start helping Mother Earth, then Mama will create more discipline. Our society has been at war with Nature and the Divine Feminine for over 2,000 years. What if we declare 2014 a personal year of truce in that war on Nature? What if we each choose love instead of greed or apathy? What if we each decide to take whatever steps we can to heal the soil and heal our soul by getting grounded — both literally and figuratively? Can you imagine the ripple effects of that? Can you imagine the creativity that would flow from working with Nature to heal Nature and to roll back enough of the damage so that humanity receives enough time to evolve in easier, less frenetic ways? As the Hopi say, “This could be a good time.” It will take feet on the ground work, but it is doable.

We begin this New Year with a potent New Moon — perfect for going deep inside and setting intentions
that ripple out into the world. I’ve quoted Kabir before, but all this talk of the Divine Feminine and the ocean reminds me of this quote again: “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” May we each know this and live this in 2014 and beyond.

Blessed Be.

432 Hz and the Wizards of Oz

Thank you, Lance! I’ve posted on frequencies before and knew that the resonance of this universe has been under manipulation. This article documents some of the how’s and why’s. If nothing else, have a listen to the amazing cricket chorus slowed down to human lifetime pace. It’s gorgeously haunting.

Tribelight Station

Sound and music consist of vibrations, the more vibrations per second, the higher the pitch. The unit for this is the Hertz, abbreviated Hz.

432 Hz is the natural “musical pitch” in the universe, as opposed to 440 Hz, which is the standard in the music nowadays in, for example, music albums and mp3 files.

This musical pitch is the standard pitch of the diapason, which is the musical note A above the middle C, scientifically named A4.

Most music worldwide has been tuned to 440 hertz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) endorsed it in 1953, following the prior recommendations of the Nazi party spokesman, Joseph Goebbels in 1939. Suffice to say, I will not waste good energy down the rabbit hole of conspiracy to expose another Illuminatti agenda, however I will quickly state that there was an organised effort to change Concert pitch to 440hz well back at…

The Power of Your Emotions

Today, we have another series of comments turned blog post, this time from a discussion on Jean Haines’ blog. The discussion included after this long introduction covers ideas of being “in this world but not of it,” the Temperance Card and the Age of Aquarius, as well as the importance and power of your emotions. As regular readers know, I very much value the importance and power of love and forgiveness. I also recognize that love sometimes means calling out abuse, and then following that emotional line with action to stop future abuse.

The New Age and “Ascension” Movements have become so indoctrinated with the idea of “if you fight it, you feed it” that it’s tempting to lose sight of other choices. It’s not an either/or option of “live completely passively or become a violent thug.” We don’t need to “join them” and employ the same methods of violence and “power over.” We have other options besides “fight” or “flight.” We can also acquire different weapons that lift the old “fight” into newer territory. “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” was said by the same genius (Albert Einstein) who reminded us, “No problem can be solved at the same level of consciousness that created it.”

Like it or not, the subtle shift that turned the Peace Movement into the Anti-War Movement effectively neutered a force powerful enough to change the world. Before the CIA flooded hippies with LSD, real, honest, core emotions fueled a desire for world peace. A desire accompanied by powerful actions like organic gardening, creative (yet non-violent) non-compliance, and alternative community lifestyles. The power structures infiltrated the Peace Movement in the same ways they’ve infiltrated the New Age, Awakening and Truth Movements — from one angle, drugging people out with hope-ium, pharmaceuticals, or “natural” highs that leave people completely ungrounded and therefore powerless to effect on-the-ground change … from the other angle, converting righteous anger and empowering passion into mindless rage.

If we want peace to become a real, tangible force again, then we need to find middle, upper and lower ground — we need to seek until we find the best footing to implement real change. Pie in the sky is a fine starting place, but right now we’ve got drones in the skies … and many of the hopium “pacifists” not only voted to continue those drones, but they continue to endorse and enable violence through head-in-the-sand non-violence. If we can’t figure out how to stop violence, then at the very least, we have a sacred responsibility to create real, grounded alternatives so that a Tipping Point can actually happen. Slapping a “Love ‘n’ Light” sticker on genocide and tyranny doesn’t transmute such evils into “Bliss.” Not in the real world, anyway. Yes, infuse the real world with bliss — raise the default vibration — but doing so requires an occasional visit to the messy physical and emotional realms. The more often we visit, the more chances we have to influence the direly necessary clean-up and renovations.

For those who like the pseudo-Awakening Matrix Movies: it’s not just about Red Pill or Blue Pill. We can take a Purple Pill or — here’s a radical idea in the age of BigPharma– how about No Pill? How about actually allowing ourselves to feel those emotions, to observe them before discarding them as irrelevant or “low vibe.” Maybe we want those emotions … or at least to harvest their energy. How about reclaiming options that are rightfully ours but currently not offered for public consumption? We can become (to use another biblical expression) “wise as serpents, harmless as doves.” Many truly good, caring people have embraced the “harmless as doves” part, but far, far fewer have taken the “wise as serpents” part to heart. Wisdom begins by knowing ourselves — even the parts we wish weren’t there. Maybe especially those parts!

Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We live in a world where the DSM-5 classifies pretty much every single emotion as a psychological disorder that requires “treatment.” A world where BigPharma medicates the emotions into oblivion; a world where fluoride — which is essentially pineal gland poisoning Prozac — is pumped into public water supplies, as it was used in WW2 gas chambers to keep prisoners from freaking out and becoming troublesome. Yes, the internet and news are filled with “fear porn” and vitriol, but in our attempts to reclaim sovereignty over ourselves and to heal our planet, let’s not throw the babies out with the bath water.

Babies are precious. So are our emotions … as long as we nurture them, get to know them and learn how to trust them again. Despite all the attempts at divide and conquer and false duality, we don’t live in a black and white world. There’s plenty of Shadow to explore, and if we’re afraid of exploring it, including the emotions and energies that frequently dwell there, then we will continue to offer ourselves up to manipulation by those who’ve fully embraced the “wise as serpents” aspect while only paying lip service to “harmless as doves.”

Please note, I am not advising anyone on pharmaceutical medications to go dump their prescription med’s in the toilet. If you would like to get off prescribed med’s, please do consult a doctor, naturopath or other professional with experience in mitigating withdrawal effects, as pharmaceuticals create actual dependencies, which need to be safely addressed. The Hippocratic Oath advises, “First, do no harm,” but again … we must always remember to be “wise as serpents.” We live in a co-opted world. If we wish to free ourselves from all the layers of creepy infiltration, mind control, and the current — happening right now in mainstream society near you — Zombie Apocalypse, then we need to reclaim our emotions, learn what they are and how to work with them rather than being controlled by them. Respect, not control. If those emotions weren’t so powerful, then the NWO/transhumanist agenda wouldn’t work so hard at manipulating and/or eradicating them. As Starhawk says, “Where there’s fear, there’s power.”

I trust some people will find bits of resonance and assistance in the following comments, too:

That sounds like fear still talking. Jean said we have to lose attachment to that fear in the opening of this post. The name of the ascension game is to be on this earth, but not OF it. Forgiveness and understanding are what these military dogs, their superiors, and even those in the top tier of the cabal need. They were not loved enough. That’s the real lesson here. Learn it or continue to do things just like they do.

Tempering metal is one of the hardest processes to achieve. The same goes for tempering our base consciousness upward into spirit. I give you the Temperance Card. One foot on earth, the other within water, symbolizing spirit: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RWS_Tarot_14_Temperance.jpg

🙂 Sometimes, though, I think we need to express our feelings, all the while knowing we aren’t going to act on them. To keep them inside is not wise . . . When they come out in the open, I thinkit is sometimes easier to deal with them. . . Hugs, ~Jean

Well said, Jean, and also, just a note:

In the Tarot (and many other places) water represents the emotions, not spirit. Wands/fire are the suit of spirit. Emotions are extremely important, as they keep us in touch with our soul. The Temperance Card is a great illustration, but it is showing the importance of balance AND the connection between Earth and the emotions in the Age of Aquarius –Aquarius being the water bearer.

Peace,
Laura

I agree with your words, but I would like to add that it is important that we keep the emotional pathway to our heart/souls clear, so the messages we get from our hearts are accurate . . . I hope you can agree with this. . . Hugs, ~Jean

laurabruno:

Yes, Jean, I am very much a proponent of people clearing emotions and also transmuting them into higher vibration and/or using the emotions to fuel passion towards something positive we do want in this world. I just find that many times there is a desire to skip the step of actually being in touch with the emotions in the first place. That’s rampant in repressive “religions” but also very much something to keep an eye on in the whole “Ascension” movement. Denial is not the same as transmutation; refusing to look at what’s happening is not the same thing as pivoting from what’s not wanted and recognizing our own levels of influence to change things — in thought and intention, yes, but also, quite often in action.

That’s one reason why I appreciate Neil so much. I think you would agree that he’s quite a passionate guy. He’s got that fiery Irish energy that can seem like a lot of bluster to people, but if you look beyond the bluster, it’s clear he has a tremendous amount of Love. Too often, Tough Love or speaking truth to power is seen as “negative” or “fear based.” Not dealing at all with Shadow emotions simply does the NWO’s work for them — instead of them needing to censor and medicate us, we do it for them through fear of anything that’s not “Light.”

There is a difference between darkness and evil. Compost occurs in darkness and fertilizes the soil; without it, the soil becomes sterile. There’s a huge connection between soil and soul, between humus and human. Soul grows in the dark; spirit grows in the light. As humans, we have and need both. Earth is Ascending. One of the easiest guarantees of being on that track is to align ourselves with Earth, our bodies and our emotions. In order to do so, we need to spend some time in Nature, eating real, non-GMO foods and removing toxic poisons — on all the levels with whatever tools we find effective.

I think we are essentially coming from quite similar perspectives given your story of your own healing. I just hate to see people immediately stamping out anything as “fear” or “not high vibe enough.” Fear is sometimes a valid warning system to “pay attention,” “be careful,” “change your path,” etc. Anger at abuse can provide courage and strength for action to halt such abuse. The key is not to get stuck in these emotions. That’s where the Temperance card provides a good model.

I find Abraham-Hicks’ concept of an Emotional Guidance Scale extremely relevant and empowering for people: https://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/abraham-hicks-the-emotional-guidance-scale/ … You can’t immediately access bliss from a place of despair; each emotion provides stepping stones to preferred ones, but again, if we just try to put a brave or happy face on things without real honesty, inner and quite oftentimes OUTER work, as well, then we haven’t “Ascended,” we’ve just deepened the denial structure. Thank you for your blog and the comments/discussion.

Hugs,
Laura

From the Mouth of a Child – My Favorite Statement of 2013

I just love this one! Had to repost. 🙂

Tania Marie's Blog

kaleToday, or rather this eve, is one of those enchanted times I remember as a little girl and carry that magick in my heart always and all year round. I find myself singing Christmas songs no matter the time of year, especially the ones from my favorite stop-motion animations like Rudolph, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town, etc.

I’ll always be a child at heart and no matter how many times I see those movies, it’s like the first time.

So it’s no wonder that one of my favorite statements of 2013 comes from a little girl I overheard this weekend at the closure of this year. There have been a lot of profound messages and moments of inspired realizations throughout the year, but because this one is so simple and yet has so many layers of depth to it, and of course because…

Roseanne Rocks!

I’ve watched this video a couple times now. I love how Roseanne just calls “it” like it is and advises “laughing it to scorn.” To all the deriding comments about “Truthers,” she says, “When idiots are calling brilliant people stupid, you’ve got a real problem.” She cracks me up because she just doesn’t care what anybody thinks of her anymore — and that not caring gives her tremendous freedom. The only thing I would correct is that at the very end when she says, “Faith without works is dead,” it was James who said that, not Jesus. Also, there were some other ignored elements to 9/11 than just the House of Saud. Other than that … rock it, Roseanne!

From dismantling the patriarchy, to nuclear wars, to MK Ultra mind control … to calls to women having the courage to step up and change things … she certainly makes some excellent points. It’s not just women who need to step up, but I love how she places some (appropriate) responsibility for perpetuation of the patriarchy right back in the laps of mothers who raise their sons with those stereotypes and expectations. Stop being a default victim and using that as an excuse for non-action. Small actions of integrity and courage, seemingly unrelated to the bigger picture, can have enormous impact.

“SHOW UP.”

Excellent, excellent advice.
