“If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts would tell”….Gordon Lightfoot
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery none but ourselves can free our mind.” Marcus Garvey…immortalized by Bob Marley in Redemption Song
The month begins with the Sun and lovely Venus moving together through Gemini, the sign of the winged messenger. Gemini, one of the most youthful signs of the zodiac, is a sign of springtime flight and exploration. Though this is a sign often accused of superficiality, upon closer inspection Gemini and all it represents is the framer of our entire experience of reality.
Gemini rules the mind and all of its machinations. The twins are a symbolic depiction of all duality, including the two lobes of the brain and modes of consciousness. The relationship of our conscious and subconscious mind, and their relationship to superconsciousness determine our success or failure in life. As we become more adept at observing our “monkey mind” we find that we are perpetually telling ourselves stories and then reacting to the fictional narratives through which we interpret reality. These stories effectively determine our experience of life. As we awaken to our stories and learn to observe them, we are able to a very large degree, able to change the script of our lives and awaken to a more heavenly experience. The conscious mind it has been said is merely a receiver and transmitter of consciousness. It is like a two way radio. The Big Magic consists of tuning in to the highest frequency and actively seeking to align both our thoughts and our interpretations of reality to the highest possible frequency.
This is of course easier said than done. Our thoughts have extraordinary momentum to carry us along on their powerful currents. Our early subconscious programming is often deeply entrenched like a six lane super highway neural pathway in the brain. Any traumatic experience can lead to a major loss of consciousness as our frontal lobes go offline when trauma is re triggered. Luckily, there are both ancient and modern technologies that can help us to alter our thinking and the plasticity of our minds, and most importantly there is a Higher Consciousness enshrined within each of us that can be called upon to direct our consciousness.
The age old method of both training the mind and connecting with both our inner observer and our Higher Consciousness is meditation. There are many forms that meditation can take, but even three minutes a day of watching the breath and bringing attention back to the breath when it wanders can do wonders to discipline the mind. We can also make it our practice to routinely, even constantly, observe our thinking and notice when we are telling ourselves stories or are caught in a powerful emotional reactive state. At times like that we can redirect our thinking to the Higher Mind and ask it to inform how we are viewing or reacting to an inner or outer situation.
In addition to meditation, healing modalities like EFT Emotional Freedom Technique can give us tools to self regulate and dispel trauma from the mind and body. EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming is another new technology that can help reprogram a traumatic response. Somatic Experience, pioneered by Peter Levine is another powerful method of dispelling nervous system trauma, which left unattended tends to replay itself over and over. All of these methods help us to clear the past so we may actually be present. Meditation is recommended regardless of what healing practices we engage in. Meditation gives us the keys to the vehicle of our consciousness and puts us squarely in the drivers seat.
As we meditate and engage in devotional practices like prayer, blessing and consciously seeking contact with the Higher Mind, we find that there is a Loving Conscious Force that can inform our thinking, feeling and reacting. Moreover, this Force is diffused throughout creation. As we awaken from our conditioned story lines, we awaken to the Light drenched present and the field of infinite potential. This field responds to our consciousness by reflecting our subconscious expectations back to us. When we are sufficiently present it also provides us with extraordinary experiences of synchronicity.
It can be frightening but also exciting to step out of familiar storylines, but together we can write some new ones, based on Unity and great spiritual truths.
Much of what we must jettison in order to be free, are the storylines of separation, scarcity and lack that are driving the madness of our lopsided economic system and the environmental genocide it leaves in its terrible wake. This month let us re mind ourselves that we are truly One. We are indivisibly connected to each other and all life forms. We are the land, and the sea, and all people, and all creatures. Let us re mind ourselves that there is enough. Scarcity is so deeply rooted in our culture, but it can be unrooted. One beautiful practice is to go through a day on a wave of gratitude. Notice how much you already have. Expect the field of infinite potential to supply your needs and many of your desires.
The New Moon on June 4th, ushers in a tide of new thinking. We are directed by the Heavens, to align our thinking with the great spiritual truth of our Unity with all life. We are instructed to begin to heal and administrate our world based on our indivisible connection to each other and the sacred living cosmos. As we change our minds we change our world.
This month we are called to be magicians of consciousness who bring a Healing Vision to the world. May you come to know yourself as sacred vessel of the Divine. May your conscious and subconscious mind be baptized in the Light of Higher Unity Consciousness that dissolves all fear and lack, and leaves you knowing…I am enough….there is enough…We are One.
