Spiritual Understanding Of The Taurus New Moon Energy Field

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the next stellar constellation is on its way! On April 26th we are connecting with the energy field of a lovely Taurus New Moon. After all the strong fire energies, that have driven our physical world and our spirits over the last weeks, this earth-bound and deeply grounding sign will do us a lot of good in the collective awakening process. On our united path into the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth, we are challenged to bring the things into manifestation, that the fire of transformation has lifted to higher levels of awareness for us.
All in all the energy will be rather calm during this Taurus New Moon, as there are no major aspects challenging this moon constellation. From a spiritual perspective, it is also the perfect time to challenge ourselves in self-improvement and to give up on spiritual bypassing our feelings.

Ask yourself the following questions:
Am I a good person?
Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me?
Is there a difference?
How do I ever actually know whether I’m bullshitting myself, morally speaking?

If you do not know the difference or can’t say for sure what your truth is, than you might be caught in the net of spiritual bypassing. The challenge is to be fully connected with our feeling body and to lift all lower vibrations we detect inside, into higher awareness. Only creating a constant state of high vibration, in order to be disconnected from the pain and suffering of the world is not enough. Ask yourself what you are truly standing up for in this life and what your core values are. Than work on the transformation of your fears and limitations, so you might bring all this in clarity into manifestation in life and be helpful to others.

As we know, every New Moon shift is in general an invitation to start something new in your life. Under the influence of the Sun and the Moon in Taurus vibration, what ever it is we are starting should be for the long run. This is the ideal energy to plant strong and healthy steps on stable and long-lasting grounds. Spend time with soul-searching my friends, and let the teachings and the direction come from within.

They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.
Mexican Proverb

The world contained in a seed, Determined by its program.
Dejan Stojanovic

Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.
Steve MaraboliOne of the most crucial things that we need to take in account when we are dealing with his Taurus Moon field, ist that every new beginnings and every manifestation we are driving forward, should be tested in the light of our ethic and our own higher understanding of sustainable living on planet earth. We should take the laws for a brotherhood of man as much in account, as the hermetic energy laws.

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
Voltaire

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
Albert Schweitzer

A quiet conscience makes one strong!
Anne Frank

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
Thomas A. Edison

Last but not least, we are invited to take a deep look at the sustainability and honesty of the ways, in which we earn our money. The idea that for payment every unethical behavior turns into an acceptable one, clearly has failed for humanity. Each and everyone from now on has to take responsibility and do their part. If you do not like it that companies like Nestle and Monsanto destroy our planet – “don’y by their products”, and be truly concequent with yourself, and don’t go to work for them.

Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.
Voltaire

Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Oprah Winfrey

Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It’s the sure-footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life.
Ann LandersDear Ones, I hope this gentle Taurus New Moon will bring a bit relaxation and a faithful start for a blessed new beginning for all of you! I hope you have achieved enough clarity and enough inner strength, to make your choices and then stand up like a bull for your truth and authentic self. Be aware my friends, what you are starting now, will be part of a slow and long-lasting growth process. Practice patience and enjoy the path you chose!!
Love & New Moon Blessings!

Finding Inner Balance Within The Powerful Libra Full Moon Energy Field

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the upcoming week, on April 10th or 11th depending on where we are in this world, we will be passing thru the airy influence field of this years Libra Full Moon; which is energetically still deeply connected to the intensively fiery Aries New Moon from the end of March. What that means for all of us, is that until even the middle of this month, we will still feel the drive of the inner fire creating brand new directions for us. The fires of transformation can take us to undiscovered inner dimensions, and the flame of the threefold union of God and Goddess Meru – which guides the twin flame desires in us – can now be healed and brought into union; as a close positioning of Venus to Chiron the wounded healer, is playing a mayor role in this Full Moon field.
Another important aspect to be aware of is that Venus, the Goddess of Love is in Pisces, and retrograde  together with Mercury which is in Taurus – and known as the messenger of the gods and planet of communication. The energies could build up to a breaking point, in this Full Moon energies, but its not quite the time jet to act; its the perfect time to reflect on past steps, rethink the details of our plant future steps, rebuild our inner relationship with the world we live in and relive pattern in order to finally let them go.

Its a time also to reflect on our physical work as much as our spiritual work in this world, and the mindset we have about our legacy. There also might be challenges on the way in the area of defining our personal work anew, in the light of our own higher awareness!!
We should not underestimate the forces of this Libra Full Moon, as it will energetically prepare us for a major shift in 2020. In order to do so, the powerful influence of all cardinal signs – Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer will get activated, and this 3 year cycle will begin!!! This are driving forces of change, of new initiations, of physical action and responsible use of energies, which we now can watch playing out over all that years.

Another situation that creates a major impact, is that Venus in her union with the sensitive and compassionate Pisces and her conjunction with the planet Chiron, is also Squared by Saturn in Sagittarius. This constellation triggers in us a higher awareness for our inner and outer relationship with the law, the creator of human laws, territorial ideas and concepts, foreign affairs – including refugees, immigrants and ancestral / indigenous cultures!! This includes all limitations we feel, all limitations the system is showing, the evaluation of sense behind governmental regulations and a possible new definition of politics as much as leadership. HEAR HEAR!!!
At this point, please take the time and read the following articles, which are all directly relate in theme and provide guidance how to deal with upcoming feelings: Authentic Leadership And Emotional Intelligence – Teachings For 2017, Emotional Intelligence – The Ascended Master Afra/Africa & Gathering The Tribes, The Meaning And Importance Of Protest And Revolution In Modern Society, How To Be Guided By Ancient Instincts While Detaching From Survival Fears.

I call that mind free which jealously guards its intellectual rights and powers, which calls no man master, which does not content itself with a passive or hereditary faith, which opens itself to light whencesoever it may come, which receives new truth as an angel from Heaven.
William Ellery Channing

Man’s capacity for justice makes democracy possible, but man’s inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.
Reinhold Niebuhr

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
John F. Kennedy

For many within the human collective, this energy will play out as a powerful call for social justice, a desire for economic and humane equality and a profounder understanding for the translation of the Native American Code of Ethics, which energetically guides our collective evolution process into the Golden Age of Aquarius for planet earth.

And last but not least, when we are talking that much about the influence of the Planet of Love Venus, is that we have the chance to heal the most profound emotional wounds; when we allow the old to fade away and this Libra Full Moon energies to deeply touch our life and soul. It can be a true new beginning, a rebirth into new levels of authenticity and beauty in our relationships. What ever painful experiences the past has brought us, who ever we have hurt and been in the past – this Full Moon power field provides the energy for everybody ready for such a shift, to push the reset button and start entirely anew!!

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.
Nicholas Sparks

Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.
Amy Poehler

Sitting silently beside a friend who is hurting may be the best gift we can give.
UnknownDear Ones, I hope you are all felling that the fire of the past Aries New Moon has touched the sacred spaces of your energy body, and the balance of the Libra Full Moon powers is very soon settling in for you all. Use the drive provided in wise ways and direct the energies well, and you will see a positive harvest coming to you as soon as the retrograde planets are shifting again on the 15th April.
Love and Moon Blessings!

Thriving With The Fiery Energy Support Of The Aries New Moon

ariby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on March 27th/28th, depending on where we are in the world, we will experience the peek of a fire powered Aries New Moon at 7 degree and 37 seconds. Our inner fire and passion for life are the themes of the week for sure, as not only the Moon is in the sign of Aries, but also the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Saturn and Venus.
Lots of energy for strong actions and new beginnings! This is truly a time where we can give our old and overdue ballast to the sacred fires of transformation, and move on to brand new ways of creating our world. Its a chance to profoundly rejuvenate our energy field, our emotional body, and the way how we do things in everyday life. Also it provides the possibility to rebirth our SELF and re-create profoundly how we see our own existence on planet earth, collectively as well as individually.

We will find seven planets that are located in cardinal signs during this Aries New Moon. Another profound indicator that its time for all of us to take action, to be open for risks we never dreamed of taking, and for approaching the world one more time from a brand new angle.

One of the challenges we might face during the upcoming Moon influence is coming from a cardinal T-Square, which is playing out between the forces of Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus. This combination can bring up quite deep fears as well as our resistance to change and evolve right now. In case that happens for you, just embrace the moment and your lazy part – give it a 15minute window to soak in it, and than keep going dear ones ;-)!

Change is growth. For me it has been a very spiritual and musical rebirth.
Lenny Kravitz

I invite all those who share my anxiety about, and hopes for, the future, and who burn with the desire for a political rebirth, to enlist with us. And addressing myself especially to the young, I invite them to become the vanguard in this sortie of national reconstruction. For a proud and happy Greece (WORLD!! writers note)!!
Konstantinos Karamanlisb Mars, the planetary ruler of Aries, is positioned in the grounding earth of Taurus during the New Moon day, that will bring us the inspiration we need to nurture our new creations and come up with thoughts we never thought before. On a collective level we will feel the need to change the ways we are living now, to more sustainable and profoundly humane forms.

My generation had to be taken seriously because we were stopping things and burning things. We were able to initiate change, because we had such vast numbers. We were part of the baby boom, and when we moved, everything moved with us.
John Hughes

Research confirms that both Republican and Democratic women are more likely than their male counterparts to initiate and fight for bills that champion social justice, protect the environment, advocate for families, and promote nonviolent conflict resolution.
Dee Dee Myers

The most exciting impact we will collectively feel during the New Moon field is active, is that we are invited to awaken the wild child within us again. To feel and re-visit this magical place of childlike happiness, where small actions of wilderness can turn into the most powerful creations we ever were inspired to bring into birth.

Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child’s eye – it is very beautiful.
Kailash Satyarthi

When our Lord says, we must be converted and become as little children, I suppose he means also, that we must be sensible of our weakness, comparatively speaking, as a little child.
George WhitefieldaDear Ones, I hope you are doing very well these days and have fun simply being alive every day!! I think this world is so deeply in limbo and such a pure paradise already, its amazing to watch!! Allow me to share a last little blessing this New Moon field is providing, the fact that Venus is retrograde in Aries, invites each and every one of us to embrace the things that bring pleasure to our life; and to deepen our relationship with this inner sanctuary we call SELF.
Love & New Moon Blessings!

Building Conscious Relationships Based On Alchemy Rather Than Chemistry

alchby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
it was quite a ride so far, this amazing year 2017, don’t you think!? I think it is just incredible how much has been brought into movement already in such a short period of time. If you remember my articles “Welcome 2017 – Year of New Creations and New Beginnings” and “Authentic Leadership and Emotional Intelligence – Teachings for 2017”, than you know already that for the coming 10 month the most driving themes in the collective human awakening process is creating from the heart and learning to dedect authentic leadership – inside as outside of us. The Full Moon and the New Moon influences have been very strong this last 2 month and the world events slightly overwhelming in time, but there was also much positive energy fiering up our personal lives.

The energetic impacts that the different Moon phases have brought to our door, have allowed us a strong increase on awareness how we want our future relationships to look like. The rebelious drive of the Aquarius New Moon, the Leo’s Full Moon power to heat us from within with I AM light; and the sensitivity of the upcoming Pisces New Moon, are all together providing the perfect energy field to “no longer get ready – but be ready, to meet the right partner” for the sexual partnership we desire in life.

If you are not quite sure yet, what the qualities and the energies are you’r unconsciously seeking in your future sexual relationships, you can always give the meditation in this article a chance and you will by vibration attract what fits for you right now. “How to attract a relationship partner for the golden age thru inner clarity”. Following you find a beutiful text from an unknow author, discribing the difference in a relationship based on a foundation of chemistry or alchemy. Maye it will inspire you to give yourself a chance for an experience beyond “the current norm”of love relationships.

A teacher was asked the difference between chemistry and alchemy in relationships and he answered with these beautiful and wise words:
“People looking for Chemistry are love scientist,
That means, they are used to action and reaction.
People who find Alchemy are love artists,
Who constantly create new forms of love.”

Chemists love for need, Alchemists by choice.
Chemistry dies over time, Alchemy is born through time.
Chemistry loves the packaging. Alchemy enjoys the content.
Chemical simply happens, Alchemy is built.

Everyone seeks Chemistry, only few find Alchemy.
Chemistry attracts and distracts sexist and feminist.
Alchemy integrates the masculine and feminine principles,
so it becomes a relationship of free individuals and own wings,
not an attraction that is subject to the whims of ego.

In conclusion, the teacher told the students:
“Alchemy brings what Chemistry separates.
Alchemy is the real marriage,
Chemistry the divorce we see every day in most couples.

Let’s start building conscious relationships,
because chemistry will always make our body age,
while the alchemy keeps caressing us from the inside ”
Source Unknown1Le preguntaron al Maestro cuál era la diferencia entre la química y la alquimia en las relaciones de pareja y contesto estas hermosas y sabias palabras:

Las personas que buscan “Química” son científicos del amor,
es decir, están acostumbrados a la acción y a la reacción.
Las personas que encuentran la “Alquimia” son artistas del amor,
crean constantemente nuevas formas de amar.

Los Químicos aman por necesidad.
Los Alquimistas por elección.
La Química muere con el tiempo,
La Alquimia nace a través del tiempo.

La Química ama el envase.
La Alquimia disfruta del contenido.
La Química sucede.
La Alquimia se construye.

Todos buscan Química,
solo algunos encuentran la Alquimia.
La Química atrae y distrae a machistas y a feministas.
La Alquimia integra el principio masculino y femenino,
por eso se transforma en una relación de individuos libres y con alas propias,
y no en una atracción que está sujeta a los caprichos del ego.

En conclusión, dijo el Maestro mirando a sus alumnos:
La Alquimia reúne lo que la Química separa.
La Alquimia es el matrimonio real, la Química el divorcio
que vemos todos los días en la mayoría de las parejas.

“Comencemos a construir relaciones conscientes,
pues la química siempre nos hará envejecer el cuerpo,
mientras la alquimia siempre nos acariciará desde adentro”.2Dear Ones, I hope you are filled with divine inspiration these days, and with sparkling ideas how you are planing to build your own conscious relationship, for the Golden Age of Aquarius. When we are aware who we truly are, and capable of standing up for what we truly need, we will be blessed with receiving more blessings than we can possibly imagine. Trust the process and the alchemy of love!
Sending you Love and all transforming Blessings!

Faithfully Grounding Our Emotions With The Virgo Full Moon Energies

virby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
here we are again, invited by a very strong and grounding Virgo Full Moon which peeks on this Sunday March 12th, to make the next step in our personal and collective evolution, and to balance the ways how we are dealing with our feelings as well as how we apply emotional intelligence in our daily life. Some of you might remember, that I shared an article called “Authentic Leadership And Emotional Intelligence – Teachings for 2017” at the beginning of this year, and now its the time to live up to that.
The energy field of this Full Moon is all about understanding and expressing our own feelings on the most profoundest of levels, which will lead to intense healing opportunities. But lets take a bit closer look at the details of these days. The first thing to notice is that while the Moon is in Virgo during the full moon, the Sun, Mercury and Chiron the wounded healer – are all together in the highly sensitive sign of Pisces. And while every Full Moon cycle is a chance for endings and new beginnings, this combination is an indicator that even themes that have been stuck for a long time, now have the chance to move in new directions and into healing.

One of the teachings to be expected with this month full moon influence, is the invitation to develop a deeper understanding and stronger feeling, for the natural rhythms and cycles of life that every human being experiences. But not only the collective rhythms will be clearly vibrating thru the earth body, also every individual has the chance to find their personal rhythm for growth and evolution in their life.

What the Principle of Rhythms and Cycles explains is that:
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”

Our biological rhythms are the symphony of the cosmos, music embedded deep within us to which we dance, even when we can’t name the tune.
Deepak Chopra

To live is to be musical, starting with the blood dancing in your veins. Everything living has a rhythm. Do you feel your music?
Michael Jackson
bAnother big theme we will find ourselves to be confronted with, is our healing process in all its faces and facets. On emotional, mental, energetic and physical level we will have chances for profound healings, with this Full Moon’s energy field between the grounding Virgo, the emotional Pisces and the intense emotional healing Chiron is usually bringing forward.

Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.
Marianne Williamson

The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it.
Nicholas Sparks

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
Rumi

A rather difficult influence to deal with this weekend is a T-square between Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto, which can trigger any kind of fears in us; and that Uranus is also in Aries might bring up hidden anger issues. If so, allow your anger to teach you about the boundaries you need to be aware of, and release what ever needs to be surrendered into healing and responsible authentic self-expression.

Every mind which has given itself to self-expression in art is aware of a directing agency outside its conscious control which it has agreed to label inspiration.
Norman Lindsay

Self-expression is always a right, but it’s still not there to be abused.
Isaac Hayes

Last but not least, we have dear Venus going retrograde right now, and this so in the fiery zodiac sign Aries. This will bring questions into our heads about what it is that gives us true and long lasting pleasure in life, and where our true passion is expressed into the world.

My idea of a delicious time is to read a book that is wonderful. But the ruling passion of my life is being a seeker after truth and the divine.
Bell HooksxDear Ones, I don’t know about you, but I feel deeply impressed by the powerful energy movements this year has already set into motion. I hope you are all ready to consciously jump on the train of change, which is bringing the human collective to the next level of understanding for the Golden Age of Aquarius right now. May you all feel the positive power of your emotions and ground the strength of your spirit in passionate motion this week!
Love & Full Moon Blessings!

Diving Deep With The Energy Field Of The Pisces New Moon And Solar Eclipse

piscby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
don’t you think this year will go easy on us at any time soon, the stellar constellation is teaching us pretty much the opposite. Just about ready to take a deep breath after the intense energy field of the Leo Full Moon on the 10th/11th of February, are we now meeting a Pisces New Moon with Solar Eclipse influence on February 26th. This will be another powerful and also very explosive energy field, to drive the collective of humanity towards further steps for the creation of the Golden Age of Aquarius on planet earth. Explosive because the New Moon is in the water sign of Pisces, which is steering up our most profound emotions; and at the same time the forces of Uranus, Mars and Jupiter are driving the collective boat these days.
Be aware that if it serves the higher good of your personal life and spiritual development, than one or the other situation could end with a big boom under the influence of this New Moon field. The wonderful thing during this coming days is, that with every ending we experience – also a clear sense of the new beginning to follow is already build in!! Now its all about the question “what am I gonna do with the situations, people and feelings, that are brought to my door by life”.

Understanding the value of a strong inner guidance and grounded application of all our spiritual wisdom and personal abilities, will make all the difference in how we experience the changes to come. The challenge we collectively face, is to overcome ideas and mindsets of victim-hood, so we can shift into the productive and joyful state of self-leadership. It’s not the time anymore to feel sorry for ourselves or walk in the painful past of our ancestors – now its the time to walk our talk and create the compassionate, loving and united world we want to see for ourselves and all future generations!

A shadow side that the coming energy field can bring to the surface, is the idea that bullying and overpowering others would be the tools of the strong, so check your core values, your own feelings of entitlement and if there is such a concept as competition with others in you – get over it!!
The only one we are here to compete with, is the person we have been in our failures on the way to the light. Authentically standing up for our truth and no longer allowing injustice or imbalance to rule the human race – and any other species as horrible side effect of the horror show we have created – is the task given by this Pisces New Moon and Solar Eclipse event. The veil to the other world is thin – an inviting hand to connect with our spirit guides and other worldly friends is extended – reach out and touch the next level my friends!!1What our society today needs more than anything is the spirit of empathy—the ability to put ourselves in the shoes of those who are facing hardship and suffering, to understand and share what they are going through. When the spirit of compassion becomes the bedrock of society, and is embodied by society’s leaders, the future will be bright with hope.
The Buddha

Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.
Ellen DeGeneresWisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men.
Confucius

Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together.
Linda Thompson

Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.
Deepak Chopra

This is a message of the Ascended Master Confucius that we find in the I Ching – The Book of Change:
Cultivated people have new thoughts.
When they look, they think of clarity.
When they look, they think of accuracy.
In their behavior, they think of civility.

When they speak, they think of the truth.
In their work, they think of seriousness.
If they doubt, they remember to ask the right questions.
If they are furious, they think of the difficulties that can arise.

If they receive wages, they think of justice.
Cultivated people have no fear or unrest.
When they look inward and see no fault,
what is there to be feared.
Dear Ones, I hope you feel inspired and embraced by this wonderful Pisces New Moon energies. Hope the sensitivity, the vulnerability and compassion we are all feeling right now in our collective human energy field, will guide you to high powered actions full of self-love and community care.
Love & New Moon Blessings!

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.

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!
Edith

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!

Edith
