Is It Possible To Live Minimalism In A Family With Kids?

miDear Friends,
in April last year, I shared a post called Simplifying Childhood May Protect Against Mental Health Issues, in which the author gave us insides about the mental health effect of a simple life style and less entertainment overload. In the rise of traveling families and world schooling we heard about parents on the road in order to educate their children. It is truly fascinating to watch how many people are feeling the call these days, to make a change that leads them back to the roots, and to a life filled with human values rather than material goods.
On the other hand there are many who can not even imagine letting go of the smallest possession, and need a little more inspiration to feel attracted to that idea. In the last week I finally run into this two articles, describing the benefits and challenges to live a lifestyle based on minimalism, when living in a family with children. I hope you enjoy the read and if you like the ideas, give it a try yourself!

Abundant Blessings 😉
Edith

How getting rid of ‘stuff’ saved my motherhood, by Allie Casazza:
“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of what we most value, and the removal of anything that distracts from it.” Joshua Becker

Studies show a direct link between the amount of physical possessions in a house and the stress level of the female homeowner. One study done at UCLA found that the more stuff was in a woman’s house, the higher her level of stress hormones. This same study also found that women subconsciously relate how happy they are with their homelife and family to how they feel about their homes. So the more clutter and chaos in the home, the less happy the woman is with her family and her life.
That’s what was going on with me, and I believe it’s the cause of today’s epidemic in mothers. Barely getting by, living in survival mode, feeling like their kids’ childhoods are passing them by even when they’re right there living it with them. Our stuff is literally stealing away our joy and our lives. It’s stealing the most precious thing in the world—motherhood. Find the full article here.

No Excuses: Minimalism with Kids, By Leo Babauta
When my friends Joshua and Ryan took their new book on minimalism on a huge tour, one of the most frequent things they heard was, “I could never be a minimalist because I have kids.” To which they’d respond, “Our friend Leo is a minimalist … and he has six kids.”
And it’s funny, because before I started simplifying my life and experimenting with minimalism, I had the same thinking — that there was no way to change because of my kids, or my wife’s preferences perhaps. Boy was I wrong.
I set off on a journey of exploring minimalism, trying some extreme experiments, doing fun challenges with my family … and that journey has taught me to never again let myself use my family as an excuse not to make a change I’d like to make. Instead, I bring them along for the ride, and we have an amazing time together. `1Here’s what I learned:
It starts with me. You really can’t push your family to change unless they want to. So what I do is change myself, and be a living example that there’s a different way, and that it might be interesting and maybe better. I talk to them about the change so they know why I’m doing it, what made me consider it, what steps I’m taking, whether it’s hard or not, whether I like the change. In seeing my change, they might consider trying the change, or they might just think dad’s crazy, but either way they see a different possibility. So for example I might start decluttering my closet and drawers, or scanning all my paperwork so I can go digital, or clear out a storage shed.
This is a great thing for them to see, but at the same time I’m letting them be themselves with no expectations that they’ll join me. Minimalism is a conversation. Minimalism isn’t about getting rid of all your stuff and living with barely anything. In a family, minimalism is really a conversation about what’s important. What’s necessary. Why we own things and do things. A lot of times, a family never really has this conversation — it’s all just implied in the way we live. But minimalism is about bringing this out in the open and talking about it. The result of the discussion will be very different for each family — some will keep doing what they’ve been doing, because they like that best, but others will decide to try various changes, and there’s no single right way. The important thing is to start the conversation, and to keep it going basically for the rest of your lives.

Enjoy the simple pleasures. Eva and I started doing fewer things with the kids that costs a lot of money (though we still do some of that), and instead focus on playing outside together, playing games together inside, cooking together. I’m not saying we do these things every single day (we don’t always have the time or energy) but we started showing them that the simple pleasures are amazing, and you don’t need to spend a lot of money to enjoy life.
See setbacks as learning opportunities. If you start decluttering as a family, you’ll be really happy with the changes … but sometimes there are setbacks. Your daughter might all of a sudden want a thousand Littlest Pet Shop dolls because she saw some cool videos online. You might all of a sudden have a bunch of stuff given to you by family members. These can be seen as setbacks and can be frustrating … or you can use them as ways to learn about how to deal with these kinds of issues, which are after all part of reality. You have to learn to deal with them, or you’ll struggle. There’s a lot to be learned when a grandparent doesn’t understand why you don’t have very much stuff.

Change traditions in a positive way. There are lots of things we do simply because it’s the way we’ve always done that. But these traditions can be challenged — why do we need to buy so many Christmas gifts? It’s tough to change traditions, though, because people are loathe to let go of what they’re used to. So present the change in tradition as an opportunity to do something awesome. In the case of Christmas gifts, we were going to save the money we would have spent on useless things they didn’t need … and use it for really fun experiences. We’ve gone to water parks or taken family vacations, as our holiday gift to the kids, instead of buying toys. The kids might miss the toys, but they love the experiences.
Talk to other family members. When you start making any kind of big changes, other family members (aunts, uncles, grandparents, siblings, friends etc.) might question what you’re doing. This is because you’re doing something outside the norm, and not everyone agrees with that. However, this is a great opportunity to talk to these family members about what you’re doing, educate them, widen the conversation from your immediate family to your wider family. And again, you’re setting an example for these people, and showing them there’s a different way — sometimes they even get inspired to make changes themselves!

Connecting With The Liberating Energies Of The Aquarius New Moon

aqby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
by the end of this week, on January 27th/28th, depending on where we are located on the planet, we experience the peeking of an Aquarius New Moon in 8 degrees and 15 seconds in Aquarius. This New Moon is a blessing to our authentic development, our ability to make bold moves toward inner liberation and our creative ways to approach the Golden Age of Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign, a force that can show us how to ride the wind of change with ease and the heart of a child.
Another typical expression of the Aquarius character is a love for revolution, a deep desire for transformation of the status quo, and a big heart for all of humanity. For sure you can imagine that this mix is highly supportive of the energies present right now, especially when we consider how the idea of a women’s march in Washington DC has spread all over the world within a New York minute ;-).
During this New Moon influence, we meet Venus in Pieces and Saturn in Sagittarius, in a perfect middle position. This stellar positioning is brings forward one more time, the relationship we have with money, and brand new innovative ideas how to actively liberate ourselves from all old pattern relate. And in innovative ideas, creative sparks and the desire for an increased ability to use our authentic expression skills, are also a blessings we will meet during this lovely and strong Aquarius New Moon cycle.

Time to go for what we desire most, to grab our friendly neighbors by the hand and invite them over for coffee; suggest a new art project to the world and see who wants to realize it with you; or learn a new skill you always dreamed of applying in your life. It is a brilliant time to resolve relationship issues, make new friends, meet a new partner or join a new club. Just make sure what ever you are doing, comes from a place of purity of the most authentic self you are able to be right now!

Here are some quotes that brought in alignment, are representing the influence the Aquarius energy will have on us:
Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and then they can pick it up.
Hannah Arendt

We revolutionaries acknowledge the right to revolution when we see that the situation is no longer tolerable, that it has become a frozen. Then we have the right to overthrow it.
Ernst Toller

True revolutionaries are like God – they create the world in their own image. Our awesome responsibility to ourselves, to our children, and to the future is to create ourselves in the image of goodness, because the future depends on the nobility of our imaginings.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison1960We must become the change we wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Ghandi

The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you from acting in what you sincerely and reflectively hold to be the best interests of your community.
Susan Sontag

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
William James

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Mother Teresa

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

Money has always been a particular problem for revolutionaries and anti-capitalists. What will money look like ‘after the revolution’? How will it function? Will it exist at all? It’s hard to answer the question if you don’t know what money actually is.
David Graeber

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Richard Buckminster Fuller

There is nothing more difficult to take in hand or more perilous to conduct, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Niccolo Machiavelli

Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Barack ObamaFoto Credit: Jessica BaroneFoto Credit: Jessica Barone
Dear Ones, allow me to close this report with a last quote from Robert Darton, “The American revolutionaries believed in the power of the word. But they had only word of mouth and the printing press. We have the Internet.”!! What ever next steps our collective movement into the Golden Age of Aquarius needs, we can share it now hand in hand all over the world.
Love and New Moon Blessings!

Angelic Guidance Helps Us Integrate The Cancer Full Moon Energies

2by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
here we are at the first big stellar event of the year 2017, a Full Moon in Cancer. Since the December Super Full Moon in Gemini, which asked us to make clear decisions and look behind the superficial scenes of life and what people project into this world; we have also passed a Capricorn New Moon, which helped us grounding the intense experiences we made in 2016.
And now the Cancer Full Moon is taking us again into the depth of our emotional body. Developing a daily practice of applied emotional intelligence will help us a lot with our divinely guided manifestations this year, the Cancer Moon is a first chance to get a feeling for this task. As always when the collective of humanity is facing big steps, the Angelic Realms are right there to help us.

The Angelic Numbers most vivid right now are:
Angel Number 1011:

The number is an invitation to pay even closer attention to the messages of our intuition, to the information of our sensory self and the vibrations we experience from others. An encouragement to allow life to come along and sweep us off our feet, into the manifestation of our wildest dreams and hopes for the Golden Age. They are a promise that new beginnings, inspired creations, flowing creativity, quick personal development, spiritual awakening and maybe even enlightenment can be achieved now! Seeing this number on a regular base reminds us of the eternity and infinity of our soul, the oneness of the web of life and wholeness of every single being in brotherhood of beings on planet earth!

Angel Number 1111:
This number is basically an alarm clock we have collectively set before we descended into the denser realms of mater. An alarm clock that is supposed to remind us of our role and responsibilities in the collective human awakening process. A collective “Wake-Up” call to put more attention into the moment and higher awareness into our life in general. For those of us, who are on a spiritual awakening path and actively involved in raising the collective human consciousness, it also is a moment of increased power for manifestation. A focus point to add conscious magic to the very moment. So when you see this number sequence coming up a lot for you, it is your chance to put your mind towards world peace, true love, authentic sharing, and all the other wonderful things you might desire for our Golden Age of Humanity.3Angel Number 1212:
Number 1212 is caring the vibration of creation and new beginnings, courage, attainment, inspiration, self-leadership, assertiveness and initiative. It is the message from your angels that you are to stay focused on your highest expectations, and that the angels and universal energies work for you. It is a powerful sign that you are to step out of your comfort zone and take on a new direction, or and new project. Supposed to encourage us to release the old, passionately follow our purpose, use our natural skills, talents and abilities and create win / win situations with others.

Angel Number 1441:
The Angel Number 1441 is a sign for us to keep moving with all of our power and concentration toward the achievement of our dreams, without letting the stability in our everyday life suffer on it. We can make big steps in our personal development now, and bring our personal swing into the world by expressing our soul authentically. As long as we keep our mind positive, directed and open for new solutions, what we desire can now manifest quickly and easily. The Angelic Realms are highly active in order to help humanity make another leap into the Golden Age, and we can actively help them stabilize the energy field of the collective.

Angel Number 3355:
The vibration of the number 3 represents an entrance to the realms of the Ascended Masters and their loving support system. It is also the number of the divine feminine, a playful, joyful, spontaneous and humorous energy field, doubled in its intensity. And this in combination with the multi-dimensional possibilities and chances of the number five (also doubled in impact). That means as long as we listen to the signs and directions we receive from the other world, the now rapidly occurring changes in our lives, will lead us to truly fulfill our life’s purposes. Stay centered in self-love, inner peace and mental clarity, and all your coming manifestations will open even more divine doors for you.

Angel Number 7878:
The Angel Number 7878 is the magical message that we succeeded in our quest to gain personal power strong enough, to surrender to the spiritual warrior within and feel entirely safe to follow our inner guidance. Its a sign that our good work has done the trick, that we have achieved a deeper connection to the rhythms and cycles of life, and can expect a deeper aligned and easy flow from now on. For all of us who have focused on changing their personal financial paradigms, it might also be a sign that we achieved a higher level of consciousness and balance, that finally will bring stability, clarity, abundance and a feeling of inner safety to our money situation.2Dear ones, I hope you as excited about this new year, as I am!! We will be showered by possibilities to turn our lives and this world around profoundly over all of 2017. Take every chance you can get, and see the challenges as the milestones of development that they truly can be. Keep walking on your path and good things will come your way!!
Tons
of love and Full Moon blessings!

How To Profit From The Capricorn New Moon Energy Field

12by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on December 29th we will experience the last New Moon of the year 2016, and it is at 8 degrees in the zodiac sign of the Capricorn. We are talking about another earth sign, that will help us grounding what we learned during the passing year. This year collectively transmitted to us the energetic divine blueprint for wisdom and authenticity. The chance to understand and shift dynamics relate to the abusive side of our personal and collective use of all energies. So one of the things you might be confronted with, is a profound feeling for planet earth – for sensing the needs she has – for tapping into the healing power of nature for the human soul – and for aligning with the changes in behavior humanity needs to face right now.
There is Mars and Neptune conjunct this Capricorn New Moon, which gives this moon event a kind and compassionate touch. At the same time we are in the middle of a Mercury retrograde phase, so us this moment for a kind-minded review of your past and you can start from a place of elevated purity into 2017. Doing so, might even bring some hidden talents and abilities of yours to the surface.

The moon will trigger us to understand deeper layer of structure versus flexibility and the importance of the right timing in life! So make sure you are listening to the inner waves of your soul, and follow the guidance without a doubt. The Christmas holidays have just passed and your home might be overfilled with material goods you do not really need!? Well this Capricorn New Moon is also a perfect moment to get rid of all the overweight you have collected on material level. Make a good big donation of cloth, household goods or toys to the next charity store, and in case you had a big Christmas bonus – put some cash on top of it too!!!

Because when we are in Capricorn, we are also dealing with the meaning of money in our life. At this moment of our collective evolution, money is loosing its power and attraction as a focus for human productivity. Over the last few years, more and more souls are breaking free into entrepreneurship and alternative life forms, in order to use their passion and creative powers for positive changes on this magical planet. Still we need to shift a lot of details in our understanding of abundance and the appropriate use of money, before we can let go of its importance collectively.

Here are some of the most beautiful quotes on money and abundance that fit the understanding for the new golden paradigm:
Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.
Voltaire

Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.
Ayn Rand moonsantaMoney is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.
Kahlil Gibran

A kind man who makes good use of wealth is rightly said to possess a great treasure but the miser who hoards up his riches will have no profit.
Gautama Buddha

Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed.
Gandhi

Remember, money is here to serve. You do not want to serve it. Money is a resource to be employed. It is here to serve. You do not want to become its servant. What does money serve for you? How do you use money?
Living the Way of Knowledge

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.
Erich Fromm

Live simply. Only own that which you need and perhaps a few little things for your personal enjoyment. Fundamentally, own only what you truly need and there will be no confusion, and you will not have to work too hard for money. Give money to support those things that inspire you. They require support, and you need to support them to experience your relationship with them.
Living the Way of Knowledge

The power of force, the power of wealth, the attractions of beauty and charm ultimately cannot compete or compare with God’s Power and Presence.
The Power of God in the World2Dear Ones, I hope you feel inspired, empowered and encouraged by this lovely Capricorn New Moon energies. Hope the information helps you open your mind for profound transformations and for the creation of a new relationship with money, abundance and sharing. Be generous with all the good things that life has given you, and you can always trust to have enough for yourself.
Love & New Moon Blessings!

Manifesting Our Dream Relationship With The Sagittarius New Moon Influence

sagiby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on October 30th we have experienced a beautiful Scorpio New Moon, which opened the cycle that is closing with this upcoming Sagittarius New Moon on November 29th. The archer, as the sign is often called, is an adventurous fire sign with an impeccable eye for every goal we are setting. With this New Moon comes the challenging impact of the Sun and the Moon squaring Neptune, and Venus in square with Uranus; which are impacts that can create instability and lack of clarity of the mind.
But the influence we will feel the strongest at this Moon event will be the energy field of the Asteroid Juno, which brings forward our love relationships. The good, the bad and the ugly is in the spotlight of the center stage during this Sagittarius New Moon. Long settled relationships can suddenly find their end, just as much as new encounter can emerge in total authenticity. “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Howard Thurman

So take the chance for something very special in your life, if that is what your heart and soul desire. Use the energy field to bring into the world, your most personal expression of true love in relationship. The Ascended Master Confucius, the master of humaneness said: “If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nations.
When there is order in the nations, there will be peace in the world.” For me personally, that sounds like a good base for our new relationship paradigm in action.

Here are some tips how to use your inner clarity to attract what is authentic for you:
1. Make sure you know your own needs:

A wonderful way to attract the person you need as partner, is to be aware of who and how you truly are in love-relationships. Ask yourself what you really desire from a partner. What it is you want to share with this other person in your life!
If you are not quite sure, a first step could be a clarifying meditation. Take some time to write down memories of former relationships. Memories of situations you don’t want to repeat ever again. Memories of human traits and expressions, you are not comfortable living with. Allow yourself to feel all the emotions and irritations relate, without letting them overwhelm you. Than put the list away for 3 days.

2. Look at your needs from a rational, not emotional point:
When 3 days have past, pick up your list and look, plainly from a rational point of view, at the people you chose for this past relationships. Try to be as honest as possible to yourself, even if it hurts! Look at their character, their lifestyle, their dreams, the relationship they have with their core family. Is there a pattern emerging?
The thing is, we can easily feel chemistry with people who are not good for us, and often we tend to do so. If you get lost in feelings of lust, power or other charismatic attraction, you can easily end up in a toxic relationship. So in future ask yourself if the person you are interested in, has what it takes to truly be a good relationship partner for you.23. Learn to meet your own needs:
Allow your partner to be “the most wonderful”, who is able to meet all your needs and – never depend on the other for self-care and emotional balance. It is simple not your partners job to be there for you all the time, it is yours!!
Taking self-responsibility for our authentic needs, leads to self-empowerment, better self-worth and self-respect, and that leads to more harmonic relationships. As result you will also feel more confident to pick a partner who is right for you!

4. Be aware of your boundaries and hold these space for yourself:
Being honest to ourselves about our boundaries and limitations is absolute essential for a undisturbed energy flow in all human relationships. Every minute you spend in company, you teach people how to treat you. You are consistently sending out information to others about how you want to be treated. Knowing that, you can imagine that inner clarity about your personal “rights and wrongs” is an excellent way to attract a fitting relationship partner.

5. Know how to enjoy yourself alone:
For many people it is a desire to be in a love-relationship, to share experiences together and create new dreams. It can be hard and painful for people to be alone, after all as human beings we are naturally built to be love and bond with others.
Problem is, the “fear of being alone” – is the most common reason people stay in dysfunctional relationships. So do things alone, hang out with yourself and learn to truly enjoy your own company.

6. Be who you are looking for:
We live in a universe that works by the law of attraction!! What we desire in our world, we have to become first! Easy as that! How could you possible go out there and ask the divine forces for an honest, authentic and loyal partner, when you are an unauthentic lair, who usually betrays there partner within the first week!??
Instead bit by bit, you have to take on the list of abilities you are looking for in others.
To choose healthy partner and create better relationships, we must have integrity and keep our promises. We need to be authentic in word, deed and action. Be available! Be Present! Make time for each other and you will see, that love will flow!11Dear Ones, I hope you are fully motivated now, to manifest your true soul partner under the influence of this magical Sagittarius New Moon. I hope you feel worthy to call to your side, a person you want to share the Golden Age of Aquarius with. Do it from the clarity of your souls burning desire and the passion of your heart, and you can’t fail.
Blessings & Loving Relationships!!!

The Pleasure Of Defying Gravity

01by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
since the Lions Gate opening during the month of August this year, we have passed thru intense energetic impacts and strong stellar events, that brought massive waves of awakening movement for the Golden Age of Aquarius. Over the last weeks, we faced stellar influences that challenged the human collective to seek teachings of higher understanding about the energies at play.
Something every soul that incarnates on planet earth has to deal with, is the gravity which comes with the unification of the physical elements and the individual soul essence. But gravity is something we do not only experience through the physical body, we also feel on emotional level that other peoples opinion, judgments or evaluation of our abilities can wait us down to lower vibrations.

The last few weeks have been highly powered with divine support on all levels, to defy this natural gravity of family and friends in our life, and seek clarity and liberation, through the definition of our own personal, authentic core values. Now it is time for us to hold on to the purity we found and let patience work for us, till the universe delivers the sprouts of all the beautiful seeds we have planted.
Friends and family of mine know, that I love supporting my growth with the pleasure of singing and dancing my way into higher vibrations. Allow me to share this unbelievable powerful performance, and please especially notice her face at the very end of this big moment, she seams to breath in all the energy that she has generated in her liberating act. That’s haw manifestation is done ;-)!

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by the rules
Of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap!

It’s time to try
Defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down!

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
“Everyone deserves the chance to fly!”
And if I’m flying solo
At least I’m flying free

To those who’d ground me
Take a message back from me
Tell them how I am
Defying gravity
I’m flying high
Defying gravity

And soon I’ll match them in renown!
And nobody in all of Oz
No Wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!motMy recommendation is you get in touch with the Ascended Master and member of the karmic counsel, Mother Marie. During her incarnation as the mother of Christ she refined her inner purity and her devotion to such a high degree, that she followed the guidance of the Angelic Realms without any doubt or limits. That made her the vessel needed in order to receive a soul as high vibrating as that of Jesus of Nazareth. With her loving, pure and unconditional heart; she provided the guidance it took to lead a human child into becoming an adult, that is willing to die for this world – just to prove that our true gazing light is stronger than the illusion of death!!! The safety she gave as Divine Mother, is to stand next to him when he consciously chose the sacrifice that his own soul desired, and not allowed her own bleeding human mother heart – to trap him with conditional love to the realms of the physical world.

Mother Mary Message
I am the power of the comforting heart.
The purest form of being.
Consciousness in its originality and purity.
Comes to me and know, you are loved infinitely.

I am right with you at all times,
to take you in my arms and
embrace you with the power of divine blessings.

Children of earth and of divine essence.
I open for the innocence of the higher vision,
and send the power of divine clarity your way.

Blessing to the Children of the planet!

Dear ones, I hope you feel deeply inspired right now to defy the gravity of your past and the lower vibrating parts of the human existence, and overcome the pull with the blissful wings of your beautiful, authentic I AM light. May you feel the opportunities of harmonic change come to your door, and may you embrace them unconditionally.
Blessings of renewal and new beginnings!

Spiritual Insides About The Upcoming Scorpio New Moon

cby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
this Sunday October 30th, we are celebrating a wonderful 7 degree Scorpio New Moon. And an energetic celebration it will be, as after the intense resent stellar event impacts, this lovely New Moon is coming with an uplifting and positive energy field. The last Libra New Moon invited us to allow realizations and insides, in our balances and imbalances, our co-creations with the higher self and others and the book of Karma, we might have filled over time. Prepared through this insides we are ready for the next step. We can allow this friendly Scorpio New Moon to carry us into the depth of our soul, in order to gain profound new information. The themes that now are taking the spotlight for the collective of human kind are our most intimate relationships, the purpose we planed to fulfill in this life and – supported by the influence of the planet Mercury – our communication.

During this moon phase Mercury, Neptune and the Scorpio New Moon are building a trine, which means for us an invitation to consciously seek progress in our communication skills, with our beloved ones as much as with the other world, as contact to the higher realms is easier right now. It is a good time to challenge yourself and find a way to step out of your comfort zone. To embrace authentic approaches around self-healing, new projects we dreamed of, and the creation of our most intimate connections.

The Moon conjunct Mercury, which triggers in us an intens emotional sensitivity. As a challenges than can lead us to quick mood swings, but on the bright side it increases our ability to express ourselves authentically and emotionally honest to the people we care for. Another gift from this condition is that we again can count on an increase of our psychic abilities and connections. I recommend you put extra attention on your dream world these days, the messages can be many and will bring clear insides for your personal spiritual growth process. b
As every New Moon provides us with the chance to close a cycle and step into a new beginning, here are three things I highly recommend you make a regular practice under New Moon energy influences.

1.) Count your Blessings
Sounds simple enough!? I am sure you all know the feeling when we are looking back over a work well done, a difficult communication harmoniously experienced, a challenge successfully overcome, and how good such a moment feels. So think back to all the good thinks you have done, sway in them for some more minutes, enjoy the self-respect that comes from such an acknowledgement, internally and externally, and allow the moment to nourish your self-confidence. That way your good work turns into even more blessings for you to come, and you will be stronger in all your creations and challenges ahead.

2.) Let go of what no longer serves
Most people on this planet have one or the other ghost in the closet. Some little things we are holding on to. That might be on material level (all the small items you picked up to memorize a special moment in time). Guess what, they are holding you anchored in all this moments in your past, which means you do not have your full capacity to be present!!!. On emotional level, leave the pain behind the door and move on to a place of joy and self-love. Drop the old mindsets, and free yourself of people who do not support your spiritual development and awakening to your higher-self. If you do so, you open the doors for your true soul family to come and meet you for a joyous life that wants to be shared together!!

3.) Bless your home
Everybody on this planet comes from the divine essence, and everybody in the world – has the power to bless. You  might not be used to blessing jet and it might feel weird at first to consider yourself as somebody entitled to bless, but it work like riding a bike. That also felt unstable, bumpy and a bit weird at the beginning. With repetition and training of the mind to see yourself as worthy, the effect of your blessings will gain in strength. And last but not least – while you are blessing your home, think of the fact that you are a part of it –  don’t miss out on sending some self-love and blessings to YOU!!1Dear Ones, I hope you are feeling inspired by this wonderful help that we receive right now! I hope you are making the very best of this magical Scorpio New Moon energies! May you sink into the depth of your soul and emerge with tons of insides, and may your teachings be of gentle and kind nature!
New Moon Blessings from the depth of my heart!
Edith

Helping Our Porn Influenced Youth To Develop Healthy Sexual Relationships

3by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last November I shared a wonderful article from the hand of Bryan Reeves about Why men must give up porn, in order to find excess to meaningful sexuality again. I also posted the reflection of a close friend, how he is no longer procrasturbating his life away, but is looking for new ways how to deal with his life force and feelings. Many people involved themselves in the discussion the impressively honest report by Emma Lindsay, about What a bi-sexual woman learned from dating women who have been raped, brought up.
In her piece the author shares with us, that for women in our society it has become a state of daily normality” to be harassed, depressed or insulted on a sexual level. Now I ran into a study from Australia, unveiling how deeply effected our youth feels by the porn-culture they are growing up in. So lets take a look at what we are truly dealing with, and what we can do to support our children in their attempt to develop healthy and loving sexual relationships for their future.

This is a part of the Article “Growing up in Pornland” by
“[I want] better education regarding sex for both boys and girls [and] information about pornography, and the way it influences harmful sexual practices.”
These are the words of Lucy, aged 15, one of 600 young Australian women and girls who took part in a just-released survey commissioned by Plan Australia and Our Watch. The survey, conducted by Ipsos, gathered responses from the girls and young women aged 15-19 in all states and territories.Sexual bullying and harassment are part of daily life for many girls. Young people are speaking out more and more about how these practices have links with pornography – and so they should, because they have most to lose. Pornography is molding and conditioning the sexual behaviors and attitudes of boys, and girls are being left without the resources to deal with these porn-saturated boys.

If there are still any questions about whether porn has an impact on young people’s sexual attitudes and behaviors, perhaps it’s time to listen to young people themselves. Girls and young women describe boys pressuring them to provide acts inspired by the porn they consume routinely. Girls tell of being expected to put up with things they don’t enjoy.3Some see sex only in terms of performance, where what counts most is the boy enjoying it. I asked a 15-year-old about her first sexual experience. She replied: “I think my body looked OK. He seemed to enjoy it”. Many girls seem cut off from their own sense of pleasure or intimacy. That he enjoyed it is the main thing. Girls and young women are under a lot of pressure to give boys and men what they want, to adopt pornified roles and behaviors, with their bodies being merely sex aids. Growing up in a pornified landscape, girls learn that they are service stations for male gratification and pleasure.

I meet girls who describe being groped in the school yard, girls routinely sexually harassed at school or on the school bus on the way home. They tell me boys act like they are entitled to girls’ bodies. Defenders of porn often say that it provides sex education. And it does: it teaches even very young boys that women and girls are always up for it. “No” in fact means yes, or persuade me.

The proliferation and globalization of hypersexualised imagery and pornographic themes makes healthy sexual exploration almost impossible. Sexual conquest and domination are untempered by the bounds of respect, intimacy and authentic human connection. Young people are not learning about intimacy, friendship and love, but about cruelty and humiliation.

It is intimacy and tenderness that so many girls and young women say they are looking for. A young woman told me that on dating sites she lists under “fetish” wanting to stare longingly into someone’s eyes and to take sex slow. She said if she didn’t put these desires in the “fetish” category, they wouldn’t warrant a second glance.

It is wrong to leave sexual formation in the hands of the global sex industry. We need to do more to help young people stand up against warped notions of sexuality conveyed in pornography.

So what can we do to help our youth find their own way in the intensive stretch between their human needs for intimacy, authenticity, gentleness and kindness; and the projected reality they are daily confronted with on internet, the media, nearly every commercial they see and maybe also their homes. And there is where we can begin. Invite your children to speak openly about their sexuality. Encourage your children to ask questions, and make sure to answer them honestly!! Lead your daughters to have strong relationships with other women. A lot of the pressure young women feel, to perform and outshine, comes from a feeling of competition that can be avoided by a positive bond and healthy association with the own sex.
The website womenyoushouldknow.net recently shared a post, showing a recommendation from the graphic designer Katherine Young on how magazines for our girls should look like, in order to support their over all growth into strong and authentically expressing women. And there is since this month a new way possible to look at female sexuality, by the introduction of a 3D printed clitoris into the classrooms of French schools. If that model spreads, female sexual education will naturally change.
Dear Ones let me know what your thoughts are on this topic! Personally I think it needs a tribe to grow a healthy human being, so lets come together in joint forces, so our children don’t have to feel left alone with this fundamental part of their human education.
weneedtodobetter-768x498This is from the article “This is a 3D model of a clitoris – and the start of a sexual revolution“, by Minna Salami:
This month, pupils across France will be able to use the first full-size 3D printed anatomical model of a clitoris in their sex education classes. The truth is, you might struggle to gain pleasure from a tool you don’t even know you have. In 2016, women finally know without speculation what the whole of their sexual organ looks like; and for many it won’t be quite what they imagined.
You may be wondering, what’s the big deal? Is the clitoris not the “small, sensitive, erectile part of the female genitals at the anterior end of the vulva”, as Oxford Dictionaries defines it? And isn’t the real issue simply whether it brings a woman sexual gratification? Well, decide for yourself.
The popular opinion seems to be that the 3D printed clitoris resembles a wishbone. To my eyes, it also (fittingly) resembles a fleur-de-lys, or, to use a more contemporary example, a tulip emoji.

But the important thing is that it debunks myths that have repressed female sexuality for centuries. For one, it refutes the dictionary/textbook education that wrongly asserts the clitoris is the size of “a fingertip”, a “pea” or that it is small. We can now clearly see that the clitoris includes two shafts (crura) which are actually about 10cm long. Not only can we visualize that the clitoris is more than what the eye perceives; with the visual model we can also now get a mental image of how it encircles the vagina, making penetrative sex potentially orgasmic.

Moreover, with the 3D model, the uninformed ways that women’s bodies are represented, whether through sex education, pop culture or pornography, now just seem silly. Imagine a world where it is common knowledge what a woman’s primary anatomically sexual organ looks like. Imagine how sexually empowered women who can visualise their clits will be. Imagine too how confident men can be when freed from the epidemic deception that satisfying a woman is like winning in the lottery. And lastly, imagine being able to respond to inquisitive children who want to know why Jane’s and John’s genitals are different, with a logical and factual answer – that a clitoris is like an internal penis and a penis like an external clitoris.8Sources: theguardian, collectiveshout, womenyoushouldknow

How We Can Consciously Profit From The Libra New Moon Energies

nby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on October 1st we are experiencing this years Libra New Moon, and it is sending the first signs of the incoming energy field ahead. One of the themes always triggered in us when Libra has her hand in the mix, is the topic of balance. Internally we are talking for example, about the balancing of our divine ability to ascend from all lower vibrations – with our human ability to bring spirit into physical expression, and the balancing of the feminine power of creating and holding space – with the masculine power to manifest and give form.
When we desire to be part of the harmonic emerging of the Golden Age of Aquarius for all beings on the planet, than it is wise to spend some time with this awareness during this New Moon influence. On a spiritual level such a harmony seeking air sign as Libra, can bring us in touch deeper with our higher divine guidance. The last Pisces Full Moon has collectively again increased our psychic abilities, which means for the ones who are not used to talk to their spirit guides, it is a new chance to connect.

My recommendation is you get in touch with the karmic counsel. That is the crew of Ascended Masters, that is holding the details of the Akasha Chronic, the book of all our deeds on planet earth, over eons of time.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KARMIC COUNSEL:
Understand that the cycle of life, of all things, all events and beings,
incorruptibly brings justice to everything.
All parts of life are united in an universal awareness.
Recognize that your thoughts, your words, and your deeds
have an input on the whole creation.

In eons of time, the ages bring thru the great cycles of life,
all creatures back to their creator light.
Constant change, metamorphosis,
unveil layer after layer of our true self

Judge not, that you be not judged!
Rejoice, because your names are written in heavens.Libra by Patricia Brennan This Moon event comes with a Saturn sextile in Sagittarius, which brings gravity to our special abilities and new perspectives. A trine with Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, that also will trigger us to recognize our most profound feelings, and can be quite challenging during this moon’s influence. Keeping that in mind, there is a lot in human nature that has to be considered, when we truly desire to outgrow our old paradigms and energetic imprints.

One of the biggest steps is best expressed with this famous speech by Marianne Williamson, that Nelson Mandela shared with us:
“…Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”5Dear ones, I hope you are all on your way to find profound balance with this New Moon’s support. Be like the moon and honor your true nature! Make waves where it is appropriate to do so, cycle with ease through the seasons of your life and shine bright even during the darkest night sky!! May all your attempts to create harmony be successful! New Moon Blessings & Balanced Love!
Edith
