The Spiritual Impact Of The Capricorn Full Moon

Moon-In-Capricornby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
tomorrow the Capricorn Full Moon energies are peeking and with this impact, we are going strait into the next big collective awakening chance. While all humanity keeps weaving the web of life, silently guided by our individual soul’s personal divine blueprint, we can see in the bigger manifestations on earth right now, the changes that collectively have to come, if we all want to arrive in the Golden Age of Aquarius together.
Last months cycle took us from the Sagittarius Full Moon energies, which allowed us a big expansion of consciousness and for many brought a chance for a pineal gland awakening; to the Cancer New Moon with its loud call for us to develop a profound understanding for deeper level of self care and self love. And beloved ones remember, when we are talking about changing our paradigms and ways of living, we need to take in account that this world is not ours alone, it belongs to the future generations and all our actions should be aligned to serve the next seven generations on their spiritual quest on planet earth.

Capricorn is a highly spiritual sign within the zodiac, able to unite the realms of the earth and the air, our deepest and most profoundly rooted powers to manifest matter into this world, with the highest aspirations to serve spirit and the bigger picture for humanity on a daily basis. No wonder that this magical moon energy can open the doors for us, to a healthy expansion in alignment with the second hermetic law of correspondence – widely known as “above as below”.
The trick under the influence of Capricorn, is to keep the head and the heart in alignment, and to follow our gut feeling for authentic expressions. That can be a challenging task right now, as the lower vibrations of the Capricorns ego might make a move to mess with our higher goals.

Dear Ones, a personal message, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!cAt the same time there is a big chance for spiritual realization and success where there is Capricorns energy at work, as it is the place in the zodiac where the Christ consciousness is born. With the amazing physical abilities the Capricorn is mirroring for humanity, to overcome every obstacle on the way up the golden mountain of awakening, this energy field is also another invitation to conquer our socially imprinted fears about the human body, and truly commit our spirit to a life in physical form. Time to embrace even deeper the individual beauty and strength, blessing and magic every physical appearance in this world truly is! Means we have another chance for a big leap in crystallization in our light body process!!
From an esoteric point of few it is sad, that all Sun Gods are born under the sign of Capricorn and also creatures of horrible cruelty and greed, which means it is a good moment for humanity, to check our chosen leadership on all levels as well as on personal layers of cruelty and greed, which brings us to the shift in our financial paradigms.

When we look at the way we earn our money and what kind of feelings we have about ourselves in our job, than we also need to take in account what kind of impact that has on others. In the 50s for example, a father who went of in the morning to go to work and comes home late, long after the actual family time of meeting after school / work / private activities, exchanging about the day, sharing a meal and discussing plans – was a respected figure and had all the support of the family. Partly that was the case because all our life started to be concentrated on earning money, instead of actually living a good and maybe even simple life.
Now this idea is changing, more and more people get the hang of it and see that life is actually about relationships, and how we are standing in relationship to the whole wide world. Money is loosing its power and attraction as a focus for human productivity and more and more souls break free into entrepreneurship and alternative life forms, in order to use their passion and creative powers for positive changes on this magical planet. This are signs of the unification of the divine feminine and the divine masculine within us, which will lead us back to a life in harmony with all forces. Under the energy field of the Capricorn moon, our pattern, fears and concepts might emerge another time, so they can be brought to healing, transformation and completion. cDear Ones, the doors for spiritual success are wide open! Don’t be shy! Know that you are worthy and claim what is yours! Trust that we are collectively highly supported from the spirit realms to make our steps out into the great unknown and, to bring well balanced divine manifestations into the world, under  the energy field of the deeply grounded forces of this wonderful Capricorn Full Moon.
Love and Full Moon Blessings ;-)!

The Earth And Us Are One – Earthquakes, Volcano Eruptions & Human Passion

aaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
there was a lot of movement in the world over the last few weeks. Not only that a row of high frequency impacts from intense stellar events have triggered us collectively to make big leaps in our awakening process and open our pineal glands to the world as it is right now, also Pacha Mama is rattling and rumbling, changing and shifting. While the last Scorpio Full Moon has unveiled our deepest desires on personal and collective level, the earth showed the power of her passion, thru the release of Earthquakes and Volcano Eruptions all over the planet.
While I confess that that might sound weird to you, from a shamanic point of few one thing is crystal clear, human beings are creating the weather. Before we collectively lost the ability to feel our profound contact with the forces of nature, people have been aware in daily life of the weather pattern (a representation of the hermetic law of correspondence), and their influence on us. But there also have been people aware how our collective feeling body has an influence on the weather and other expressions of planet earth.

In my post “A Right To Live – Humanity in Harmony with Mother Earth & the Nature Forces” I pointed out, that since month now, we have been invited by the collective awakening energies to build a stronger bond with the forces of the nature kingdom. And this bond we can use now to hold our faith and stay in our deepest connection with the inner guidance of our own souls, so we can ground our energies into body awareness and feel safe.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

If you have not taken care of yourself jet, you can find here 4 songs and a prayer, evoking each of the elemental vibrations within you here: to the water element; the air element; the earth element; the fire element and the element ether (spirit). The task at hand stays, to focus our passion on planing and creating a world capable of hosting the Golden Age of Aquarius.
But not only can it help us to be well grounded right now, it is also a way for us to help mother earth in her transition to higher vibration. Being aware of the intense emotions we are dealing with, that are coming from within us; and putting our efforts towards transforming what ever is not in balance within us in the flames of the violet fire of ascension, is something every human being can do to help!! Do this with intention, and pacha mama will understand your sacrifice and except it gratefully!

These days there is also more planetary movement ruling our world! Mars, the planet of action, energy and assertiveness; Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance and good fortune; Mercury the planet of information and communication, Saturn the planet of karma and discipline; and Jupiter, the planet of spiritual growth, tolerance and wisdom, are all going retrograde. A big chance for us to go inside and in retrospective of the offered themes, so we can move on from the past and have a different perspective when live offers us a chance the next time!

And don’t forget, in yesterdays post I introduced you to the Ascended Master Immaculata, the Planetary Silent Watcher. This cosmic helper from the other world, that knows so well about divine world service in silence and perseverance. She is holding the divine blueprint of life from which constantly the pattern of perfection and creation for the Golden Age and all attendants flows. Watch out for the guidance that comes thru in all the increased situations of synchronicity that is appearing in our lives right now, and read the signs wisely… with a wide open third eye ;-)!!corDear Ones, I hope you feel motivated and ready to go into a trusting relationship with heaven and earth, just as they are! To do your part by clearing your own energies and emotions on daily base! And I hope you feel deeply encouraged to make your contact with the inner light of the divine blueprint for you, and the full power of the nature forces within you! Call on the divine blueprint thru Master Immaculata as often as you need a peek for your next step! Keep up your connections and have fun while you are breathing and grounding this powerful energies of both sides of existence!
Love and Blessings!
Edith

Integrating The Current Waves Of Christ Consciousness

ChristusBuddhaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in Thursday’s post about
the Massive Wave Of Energetic Downloads & Angelic Numeric Guidance that was washing over us these days, I spoke about the increased synchronicity that appears in our lives now. And synchronicity it is, that together with so much blessing energy from heavens above, the earth herself is shaking all over the world – while pacha mama is also adjusting and extends into the higher vibrations. Just as the hermetic law of correspondence states: Above as Below! And this is just the beginning of her adjustment! According to the seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado a warning is out that “current conditions might trigger at least four more earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.

In my post “A Right To Live – Humanity in Harmony with Mother Earth & the Nature Forces” I pointed out, that since month now, we have been invited by the collective awakening energies to build a stronger bond with the forces of the nature kingdom. And this bond we will need now to hold our faith and stay in our deepest connection with the  inner guidance of our own souls. In case media jumps on the fear train, hold your space and seek help from the Realms of the Ascended Masters! A force that can be particularly helpful to integrate the intense waves from above and below, is the energy field of Buddha Gautama.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

The Buddha Gautama Prayer
I bow to the highest,
to “I AM” awareness.
So all lower levels of existence may be blocked for me,
and I might be lead to the higher levels of existence.
And to set me free from all my manifestations of birth, age, sickness and death

lThese are some of Buddha Gautama’s Quotes that help me remember what’s important 
1) You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
2) Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
3) No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
4) A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
5) However many holy words you read, however, many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
6) The mind is everything. What you think you become.
7) All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.

8) It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
9) There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.
10) You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
11) Conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with the truth.
12) Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
13) Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
14) There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.
15) If a man speaks or acts with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.
16) In the end, these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
17) Ardently do today what must be done. Who knows? Tomorrow, death comes.
18) Not even death has to be feared by the one who lived wisely.aaI hope this quotes and the prayer are motivation for you, to make yourself familiar with this beautiful source of divine light and guidance!! It can be more than helpful to have a friend like Gautama in the Ascended Master realms!! And having a relationship with this wonderful Master can enable you to become “ TRULY FEARLESS”!! Hope you enjoy his powerful energy field and find comfort in his arms, while the world is shaking of the old world paradigms to make way for the Golden Age!
Blessings an Faith!

High Frequencies Are Coming To Earth – Be Aware Of The Side Effects

iagesby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last few days a lot of people in my personal surrounding have been feeling sick or kind of  unbalanced and stronger effected by other peoples energies than usually. It took me a moment to realize, that even the strongest energy worker and transformer I know, seam to have trouble digesting all the intensity that the universe is firing at us right now. Like reported in my post from yesterday, today is the day when the Comet Catlina is closest to the earth, before making its way out of our solar system. Our Light Bodies are celebrating as they are ahead of our integration, and so the human psyche, physical and energetic body can have trouble to take it all in.
Many people have used the amazing collective frequency upgrades of the last weeks, to do some inner healing, letting go and forgiveness work on our original family tree, past love relationships and sexual truth and authenticity. All of this are themes that are effecting the first chakra in the physical body of human beings. The root chakra of our physical existence on this beautiful planet. That can change the rhythm of our biological clock and effect our nervous system, while it is calibrating to a higher connection. That can change our sleep pattern and make it harder to go to sleep, once you woke up during the night. If that should happen, use the extra time to connect with your spirit guides and see, if you receive especially for your designed messages that night!!

What else is creating side effects during our integration of High Frequencies:
*) Collectively our DNA is transforming to 12Strands, as the elements in our physical bodies are downloading new vibrations of the divine blueprint for humanity on to planet earth. That takes a bit of time and can create one or the other confusion on the way. Physical trouble as: Headaches, backaches, neck pains, having a cold, flu symptoms, digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, chest pains and an increased tendency to accidents. 11*) Waves of intense emotions might come up. Before human beings are capable of releasing the pain and hurts we are holding on to over our lifetime, we often have to feel them one more time. So if in your past you have been very aggressive, deeply jealous, massively fearful or spiteful, than you might have to feel all of this again now. A spiritual journey involves to constantly transform karmic energies. That is what we got the violet flame for. Sudden waves of emotions, outbursts of anger or intense sadness, increased sensitivity on emotional, mental and physical level, a tendency to physical violence, all can be changed and evolved in vibration – by the violet fire. Find guidance steps and simple tools here!!

*) Just as the divine Law of Correspondence (Above as Below) states, when we reach a higher realm of spirituality and self-love, we also start loving the Earth more. You might feel drown to spend more time than usually in nature. Your ability to feel a communication with plants and trees can increase, your sense of communion with nature can be stronger and you might even meet one or the other elf or gnome on your walks ;-)! And while you get re-connected to the loving heart and giving nature of planet earth, you might have to feel every pain – your own actions have cost to the planet so far.

*) And not to forget, the first personal union we build with Earth, is our physical body. Also there you might now feel the emotional effect all your self-abuses have created. So if you want to love humanity and live as one, start with loving your own physical appearance. This vessel of your own making, that allows spirit to flow and express itself in this world. Listen to the changes in diet your body might request now and keep doing that until it feels like a new balanced has settled in again. TIP: Before you eat, bless your food and take a moment for earth awareness. Tell your body that you are going to use the food, to fill and nourish your whole being – body mind and soul. That way the food will not fulfill your emotional hunger, and old abuse pattern can fall away!!! primal*) Vivid dreams can turn into a strong connection with your spirit guides. Your dreams may be more mystical and bringing symbols or signs from indigenous lifetimes, the animal kingdom can make itself more accessible to you or sacred geometric shapes might appear. If you watch a change there, start a dream journal to get all the details of your messages!!!

*) And collectively our pineal glands are more open to receive higher guidance and visions. For the once who are ready for this opening, it creates wonderful moments of divine bliss. But for the once who have been resisting change this will lead to more confusion, irritation, a higher fear level, higher anxiety level and frustration will grow. So make sure you surround yourself with people who are open to and capable of swimming with the flow of life!!

As many people you meet in daily life are not involved in the conscious awakening of their souls guidance, they will be strongly effected but unconscious about it. So make sure you watch out for yourself!! Rather forgive a little more and oversee some bits of misbehavior, than fighting what is going on. Make sure you are well connected with the loving guidance of your HIGHER-SELF, and have fun discovering the blessings that come from you mastering the energies. And take time to rest when ever you have a minute and especially, when ever you feel like “this is the moment my body needs to rest”, so it can catch up on all the good things you have been breathing in.poDear Ones, I hope being aware of this impacts will help you feel more at ease in case you are caught up in overwhelming emotions, have physical trouble or meet people who show extreme behavior. Keep your mind focused on the healing the uncomfortable side effects are truly creating and surrender to the process!! Help yourself by working with the Ascended Masters and Angelic Guides! Keep burning the violet flame and listen to the guidance of your own higher-self! I wish you integrity, inner peace and strength!!
Blessings an High Vibrations!  Edith

The Frequency Effects and Symptoms we Collective experience now!!

58by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the energies are transmitted in such massively intensity, time to remind ourselves, of the many uncomfortable effects such global shifts can bring with them. We collectively are more sensitive now and that makes it harder sometimes to feel the borders and limits we need to put up!! So be very careful with yourself and keep your energy up!!  Many people will be triggered to experience strong emotional and physical signs, shifts in habits and pattern. So lets buckle up and make the Golden Age happen.

*) Our DNA is transforming to 12Strands, the elements in our physical bodies are build of (the platonic solids), are downloading new layers of the divine blueprint for humanity on planet earth. That takes a bit of time and may create one or the other confusion on the way. Physical trouble as: Headaches, backaches, neck pains, flu symptoms, digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps and chest pains. Especially as this New Moon is in Scorpio, also watch the changes you might experience in your sexual desire!!

*) Waves of intense emotions might come up. A spiritual journey involves to constantly transform karmic energies. That is what we got the violet flame for. Sudden waves of emotions, outbursts of anger or intense sadness, increased sensitivity on emotional, mental and physical level, all can be changed and evolved in vibration – by the violet fire. Find steps and tools here:

*) Just as the divine Law of Correspondence (Above as Below) states, experience shows that when we reach a higher realm of spirituality and self-love, we also start loving the Earth more.

Vivid dreams can turn into a strong connection with your spirit guides. Your dreams may be mystical and bringing symbols or signs from indigenous lifetimes, the animal kingdom can make itself more accessible to you or sacred geometric shapes might appear. If you watch a change there, start a dream journal to get all the details of your messages!!!

*) When your channels are cleared you will experience an increased desire for creative expression. You will receive more inspiration to draw or write, dance, sing or compose. Spirit is speaking to you about how you might fulfill your life purpose and contribute to the completion of humanity. In the Ascended Master realm the Master Djwhal Khul and Paolo Veronese are helping us here!

I hope being aware of this impacts helps you feel more at ease, encouraged and inspired to courageously claim your next step to higher vibration!! Keep the mind focused and surrender to the process!! Help yourself by calling on the Ascended Masters and Angels! Work with forgiveness and the violet flame and listen to the guidance of your own higher-self! I wish you integrity, inner peace and strength!!
Blessings an lots of Love!  Edith

The Collective Effect of the 11/11/15 Shift – Symptoms you might experience now!!

25by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
as you know by now, we are collectively experiencing a global shift to a higher vibration. Once again the energies of change are purring in full power, building up to the 11/11/8 Gateway of Sirian Master Teachings of the coming New Moon. Many people will be triggered to experience strong emotional and physical signs, shifts in habits and pattern. So lets collectively buckle up and make a real difference towards our individual self-mastery, and the collective creation of the Golden Age.

The Spiritual Side of Environmentalism

abDear Friends,
I absolutely love this beautiful article. Indeed I think it is a masterpiece to understand, that an authentic expression of spirituality – naturally leads to the need for a renewed, deeper and more tuned-in relationship with nature and mother earth. And to me this lines confirm, that Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Empath are our natural leader in the movement towards positive spiritual activism, as they suffer with the environment and earth abuses – just as much as they suffer with the human beings and animals, who get harmed  in this world. My personal experience is just as the divine / hermetic Law of Correspondence states – ABOVE AS BELOW – the more my higher-self is guiding me, the deeper I desire to dig into the blessings Mother Earth is providing and spend time in profound connection with her funny spirits!
Hope your activism is inflamed already! And that you are burning from within, for the preservation and sustainability of the mutual ground we stand on!!!
Love and Blessings to you!!
Edith
When we think of spirituality, it is often in terms of a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves or a search for meaning in life. Some people may associate spirituality with going to church or temple, praying, meditating, fasting, attending spiritual retreats, making a spiritual pilgrimage, or spending time in nature. Most would agree that essentially all widely-accepted forms of spirituality are centered around love, compassion and caring for others, developing a connection to the source of life, and living in an ethical and moral manner.

Spirituality and Environmentalism

If we accept that spirituality compels us toward love, compassion, and ethical ways of living, then spirituality necessarily leads us toward a moral imperative to take better care of the Earth than we are now doing as a global society. All living beings are inextricably connected to the Earth. We are made of her elements and minerals. We emerge from her at birth; we eat the food and drink the water that she provides; and at the end of life, we become a part of her once again. As humans, we also intrinsically rely on far deeper aspects of our relationship with nature, such as our need for creative inspiration, peace and tranquility, and a deep inter-connectedness to the energy and vibration of all life on the planet.
The Earth is a complex and intricate web. When we negatively impact our planet, we harm all beings who depend on her for life. Likewise, when we hurt people, plants, or animals, we damage the Earth as well. If we look within, we are sure to find a longing in our hearts to protect the Earth herself from suffering and sadness, to create a world in which we can each pursue our dreams and aspirations without harming the one planet that supports the type of life that we love and treasure.

ahWhat Are We Doing to Ourselves?

When we reflect on the need for meetings such as the COP 21 conference or initiatives such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we automatically enter into a moral and spiritual discussion, due to the gravity of our current situation. Even the UN officials and many world leaders seem to be speaking in spiritual terms at times, as they express their concern over the environmental crisis. This is because global warming is not simply causing unusual weather patterns and hotter summers. The impacts from climate change are much more severe and life-threatening, and much more immediate, than we can tell by looking out of our own windows.
Global warming is cutting off large populations of people from their traditional modes of subsistence, rendering them unable to feed themselves or their children. It is causing the unchecked spread of diseases such as malaria. It is decimating species at the fastest rates the Earth has experienced since before humans emerged on the planet. It is causing untold suffering for people and animals in polar regions, rain-forests, and other delicate ecosystems, where the rapid environmental changes are decimating their way of life. Our modern society based on endless consumption, which is the primary cause of global warming, has other harmful side effects which also bring ethics into the picture:

Our world leaders, particularly those participating in the ongoing United Nations climate discussions leading up to COP 21, are faced with a question that seems nearly impossible to answer:
Now that we are so deeply entrenched in this way of living, what can we do to turn things around?

abaPolitical Initiatives With a Spiritual Basis

World leaders are spurring political action on many fronts that is increasingly aligned with spiritual and ethical goals as a path to environmental sustainability: The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals include objectives inspired by spiritual and ethical tenets such as ending poverty, promoting gender equality, protecting the oceans, ensuring sustainable food production, and protecting forests and biodiversity. To protect indigenous groups that have been harmed by oil drilling and climate change, indigenous pavilions and Rights of Nature tribunals will occur at the COP 21 meetings in Paris in December 2015. The Earth and its vital ecosystems are beginning to receive the respect and legal protection that was previously reserved for humans. For example, in New Zealand earlier this year, a river was legally granted the rights of personhood.

Taking Individual Action Based on Spirituality

An over-dependence on logic, technology, and economics got us into this mess. So it makes heart sense—soul sense—that spirituality, intuition, and reconnecting with nature may be the only way out. Let us consider a new definition of spirituality. Spirituality as our system of deeply-held beliefs that allow us to go beyond politics, beyond economics, beyond societal norms in order to make decisions for the common good of all beings. Beliefs that connect us to the very heart of who we are and what we know is most important. Although it may be difficult, we can rise above materialism and societal norms when we know it is the right thing to do. When we recognize that we are harming each other, that our everyday actions are depleting the resources of Mother Earth who gave us life, that by accepting the modern dream of materialism and consumption we are reducing the possibilities for future generations to thrive and pursue their own dreams …HumanTreeWhen we accept these truths into our hearts and allow our true nature to respond with full emotion and allow ourselves to feel the longing for a better way of living … Then, at that very moment, our spirituality opens up a new space of clarity within us, where we fully internalize the conviction that each one of us has the universal responsibility to make the world a better place. Then, suddenly, we know what it is that we need to do in the world. How our small, precious set of skills and our unique viewpoint can lend a vital force and power to the vast movement that is occurring in the world at this time.
Every one of us has talents that can make a powerful and positive difference in the world. It may be your beautiful singing voice. It may be your talent for public speaking or your ability to bring together diverse groups of people for a shared goal. Or it may be your knowledge of farming, finance, software development, or manufacturing that can lead to a breakthrough in sustainability. We all have a part to play; it is just a matter of finding your inspiration, and that can only come from the deepest reaches of your heart and soul.
