Lee Harris: July 2012 Energy Forecast

I always love Lee’s monthly energy forecasts, as they correspond so closely to my observations during sessions as well as in my own life. Lee Harris has such gentle, calming energy that I like to share his videos. This month underscores the spiral aspect of healing, which I’ve also received in terms of clients’ processes, labyrinths and in Susun Weed’s Healing Wise book that describes the Wise Woman’s Way as a spiral. A linear method of healing just focuses on masking symptoms; a circular method focuses on “learning the lessons.” A spiral method of healing includes everything, recognizing that things cycle up and down as they move around the spiral, constantly growing and expanding. Lee touches on these ideas as well, reminding us not to judge ourselves or others for where we/they are on the spiral. “Remember, several routes, one destination.”

The entire forecast offers many insights, but the following paragraphs jumped out at me. You can watch the video at the end of this post, or for those who prefer to read instead of listen, here’s a link to the written article.

“So honour and love your own practise but deeply commit to it for yourself, without distracting yourself by needing others to join you in it. Remember, several routes, same destination. So whenever you catch that need for others to do it ‘your way’, recognise how your energy is externalising onto others. Projecting your belief outward, rather than deepening inward with your belief, thus losing your own energy.

“The seed of war that exists in us as humans runs deep and that is what this energy of projection speaks of. The effects of war energy are what we are dealing with in the world on a major level now, and it is becoming more exposed every day. So do not be surprised if those around you begin exhibiting this energy in subtle and bigger ways.

“The seed of war is: wanting/needing power over others and their ways of being, or a belief there are lesser people than yourself. Both of these speak of energetic disconnection from the heart of yourself and your fellow man/woman. And it shows up in subtle ways for all of us, as it is an energy we have shared in over time.

“Judgement of the ways of others, feeling superior to others or believing you are more advanced than others are the evident traps in the spiritual community. None of these thoughts or projections will help the ‘others’ you are viewing that way to evolve. It will just dim your own energy to create the good you are capable of creating, and puts back out into the world further seeds of war energy, thus encouraging others to contract in fear rather than expand in love.

“If you find yourself being judged by another, step away or say something to them, as it will not help you or any of us to be on the direct receiving end of judgement right now. And that energy will be flying around as the ego and male shadow energy shake through us as a collective in transformation following the Venus transit and rise of the feminine.”

Letting Go of Should’s

Today is one of those days. Perhaps you’re feeling it, too. Maybe, as usual, I’m feeling it a bit ahead of the clients and students I’ll be helping through this phase when it hits more of the Lightworker crowd. In any case, I’m feeling it — that “Really?! You have got to be kidding me that this is even still an issue” feeling — sometimes inside of me and sometimes reflected back in naive, yet predictable ebbs and flows into duality by people who “should” really know better.

Ah, the should’s! What good do they ever do anyone? The angry should’s easily get shushed into more focused positive action, but the sad, shaking my head should’s? For some reason, those feel more difficult to release. And so I ask myself again, “What good is a should?” To my surprise, my very own inner Dr. Seuss responds:

A should would be good,
But it can’t so it shan’t.
Would, yes we would,
That our should’s
Could be good,
But they slog in the muck
And they feel oh so yuck.
Just leave them alone,
Go out on your own.
Who cares if that swan is a duck?

My apologies to the good doctor, whose real prescriptions do seem to work:

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.”

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”

Thanks, Dr. Seuss, I will take these six and call you in the morning. And as for this: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” … for today, I will simply assert: “In my world, everyone’s a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!”

Much better! I think those should’s just pooped out with the butterflies, and butterflies are free.
