Much is unfolding, even when everything appears to be still. There is action in movement, but there is action in stillness as well. On the 8th of February, we’ve experienced a new moon in Aquarius, the contemplator, the reflector with the focus on the inner planes, balanced beautifully and harmoniously by planets that set the wheels in motion, such as Mars in Scorpio. On the same day, the Chinese New Year has been celebrated, the year of the monkey.
Whenever such events are manifested in the outer, they mark a greater significance. In this case, the completion of a cycle and the beginning of a new one.
Over that past couple of weeks, we’ve integrated profound understandings, we’ve unified aspects of ourselves and we got deeper in the self-mastery process through experience. I read this energy in themes and the overall themes of it were surrender, along with acceptance, constant transformation and embodiment of our Soul core. It’s not that this is stopping, expansion is continuous, but there are certain completion points for the things we’ve been working on.

As I’ve mentioned, we’ve been pushed to surrender all the resistance we might have held. This was needed, because there are experiences that we perceive as “negative.” The moment we perceived them so, we denied them. We deny the experiences that we came here for in the first place, instead of working through them. Let say, for example, you find yourself at a job that you don’t like, so you go” I don’t like this. I never wanted this, why is this happening? I don’t want this.” and from there you start denying the experience, you try to escape it, instead of embracing it. But in truth, this job was created by you, for you in order to learn something from it that is most likely for your Soul growth. Maybe there is a relationship at your work place that benefits you, or certain skills you need to acquire from it that will benefit you on the long term.
Bottom line is, your experiences reflect you and they usually hold a greater purpose than you can think of. Sometimes, we don’t know everything, and we don’t see the bigger picture, but know that all the experiences that are often perceived as “negative” might hold a rare gem that yearns to be discovered and some of these experiences can be truly life changing in the most beautiful and transformative ways you can think of.

Knowing this, we can accept what life has to offer fearlessly, we can accept life as it is, surrender. It doesn’t mean hardships are necessary or that struggling is necessary. It means that the sooner we accept life as it is, the faster we move into the natural flow of creation and the easier it will be to move through challenges, just like the swan paddles across the water – with grace.
From there on, we can make the best of every experience we have in every moment. Work with what you have now, not what you think you should have. If the experience is there, it means there is a good reason for it. We can spend time dreaming about how things should be and how if the circumstances were different we would be happier, while we are missing the dream that is already being played out by us, for us. We are missing the moment of now and that way, we are missing out a big part of life itself. Dreaming the dream might give some sense of hope, I understand, but living the dream is the ultimate happiness. No one, ever, can teach you how to be happy or how to live, unless you figure that out yourself.
Life is not happening to you, you are life/creation itself. You make creation happen and the moment you truly realise and embody that realisation, you activate a little bit more of your potential as a human co-creator being, which is life changing. Often time, not the most visible change, but by far one of the most profound one. After this realisation, comes the mastery. There might be moments when you feel hopeless, helpless and disempowered. In those moments use this newly (or not so newly) acquired awareness of your potential and tune into the higher truths of the Soul. It’s like switching from a boring radio station, to one where they play your favourite tracks.

These words are only meant to guide you towards living the dream, but it’s always our job to do it, to be truly alive.
