How To Be Guided By Ancient Instincts While Detaching From Survival Fears

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in my last post about the upcoming Aries New Moon influence, which will be peeking on March 27th or 28th depending on your location in the world, I shared that one of the challenges we might have to face because of this Moon’s energy field is coming from a cardinal T-Square. This strong stellar constellation, which is playing out between the forces of Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus, was designed to trigger and bring up quite deep fears as well as our resistance to change and evolve right now.
A  friend of mine, who was listening to my interview on “The Spiritual Voice” about the current energy movement, the other day reminded me that I had explained especially the difference between the self-empowering, ancient strength that our animal instincts bare; and our personal reaction pattern, that we have created around our personal survival fears.

A clarification of particularly the difference between such a healthy heightened awareness and the fear of survival, you can find around the 15 minute mark on the audio tape. Sometimes the differentiation between the animal side and the spirit side can get quite muddled and I than its confusing for our emotional body.

To put it simply, the lizard brain is purely concerned with survival.
Stephen Richards

When your own life is threatened, your sense of empathy is blunted by a terrible, selfish hunger for survival.
Yann Martel

The continuation of man’s life is more attributable to his fear of death than it is to his desire to live. As a matter of fact, in countless cases, it is attributable to only the former.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

A tingling in her spine warned her the path that lay ahead was dangerous, but her curiosity placated her, driving her onward against her instincts.
Kayla Krantz

Every time I’ve done something that doesn’t feel right, it’s ended up not being right.
Mario CuomoA task that is immensely important for the development of the human collective as much as for each individual, is to gain awareness over the many moments of overreaction, that our wounded emotional body might still trigger in us. A favorite saying of mine is: “know what to do when a real tiger is on your heals – learn not to react, when a paper tiger wants to stop you from reaching your soul’s authentic desires!” Means – don’t let your fears stop you – instead seek to overcome what limits you!!

A practice that I have spend a long time exploring, is the us of this stellar awareness prayer. Repeating this prayer over and  over again like a Mantra, allows us to develop a feeling for the dancing starlight within ourselves. As during this Aries New Moon impact the focus is on rejuvenating our energy and re-birthing ourselves in a brand new light, this week is a specially blessed time to work with this magical tool.

STELLAR AWARENESS PRAYER
In this beautiful,
this amazing magical moment
I celebrate my oneness with the element of stellar radiance.

My physical body assimilates the rejuvenating powers
of the tantric language of light

My breath unites my physical being
with the very source of creation,
cleansing my emotional body.

My mental body releases fears,
as I understand myself as sentient
as sovereign and eternal.

Love, Peace and Oneness
are my protection.
Dear Ones, I deeply hope that the intense fire energies of this Aries New Moon are boosting your courage right now. That you are standing tall for what you believe in, and maybe even take a little extra risk to achieve lasting happiness. Allow me to close this piece with a quote from Oscar Wilde. “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
Love and Courageous 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!

The Pisces New Moon Field Triggers Our Victim-hood Pattern And Self-Leadership

1by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
just the other day I shared with you an article about the energy field that yesterdays Pisces New Moon and Solar Eclipse have created for the collective awakening process of humanity. I mentioned already there one time, that the impact we are facing right now is a very strong one, and that it can lead to quite fiery explosions. One of the feelings that might be experienced in all intensity these days, is the powerless state of victim-hood. If we have a single notion of a victim mindset or mentality left inside of us, than we will feel it over the coming days. That might not be a very comfortable situation to go thru, but it is an incredible chance to move into self-leadership. Below I have collected some quotes for you that can give an impression, how such a shift in consciousness could possibly look like.

“A victim evokes sympathy, right? Victims are not responsible, right? Victims have the moral high ground… someone else is causing the misery, right? Victims can easily justify why they are right. Victims allow themselves to be stuck in the status quo and they excel at seeing the faults in others, ignoring their own responsibility. They love to take others’ inventory of faults and are excellent at blaming. Victims become hypersensitive to real and perceived injustice, where any slight becomes a reason to reject. Victimization is the toxic wind blowing through families, fanning the fires of dysfunction.”
David W. Earle

“It takes a great level of intelligence to maintain a thinking process as stupid as victim mentality. Because it is such a great undertaking, we take pride in it. It highlights our intellect. Too bad it also highlights our lack of wisdom. For all our twisting, wringing, stretching, and stuffing, we only contort ourselves.”
David G. Allen

“The difference between a professional victim and an empowered person is NOT what has happened to them, but the way in which they REACT to what has happened to them.”
Miya Yamanouchico“Today is a new day. Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny! Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances and start taking action towards the life you want. You have the power and the time to shape your life. Break free from the poisonous victim mentality and embrace the truth of your greatness. You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life!”
Steve Maraboli

“When you choose to act on your problems, you cease to be a victim of circumstance and become a force of change; that’s when you transition to not only being a survivor, but to being a leader or hero too, and an inspiration to those still in the victim’s mindset.”
Innocent Mwatsikesimbe

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

A leader is best
When people barely know he exists,
Not so good when people obey and acclaim him.
Worse when they despise him.
But of a good leader, who talks little,
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
They will say:
We did it ourselves.
Lao-tzu

Self-leaders are still true leaders even if they have no known followers. True leaders inspire by the influence of their characters and general self-made brands. Leadership is defined by the virtues of one’s behavior.
Israelmore AyivorDear Ones, I hope this information and quotes can help you in your goal of digging deep for your creation of the Golden Age of Aquarius. This Pisces New Moon and the Solar Eclipse are truly powerful in their ways of showing us all the little moments of victim-hood we are still caring within. Time to release and make bold decisions of self-empowering nature, for wonderful new beginnings in this upcoming Moon cycle.
Love and 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!

My Collection Of Awakening Experiences Continues No III

2-2by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
nearly one year ago, on February 08th 2016, I shared with you this post called “A Collection of True Awakening Experiences II”, which was a Free E-Book project inspired by the wonderful Barbara Franken – to bring together the stories of many female voices, and their unique experiences on the path to authenticity and truthfulness. I did so, because I love projects that are born from collaborations, I saw a big chance to inspire lots of other women and men, and because I was giving myself a blessing for my birthday – which is the 8th of February.
This year I will make another leap into the unknown, and record an interview that I was invited to by the lovely team of  the awakening platform “The Spiritual Voice”. I will let you know for sure, when the talk goes online!! But in the meantime I did not want us to miss out on a review of the past year, and the steps I was able to make.

In what I posted for 2016, I spoke about the last ten year of my personal path of growth and enlightenment, and the dreams I have for the year that back than was lying ahead of me. Looking now at all the leaps and turns that I have taken in the meantime, I first of all feel like expressing my gratitude to my wonderful spirit guides, my loving dog family, my magnificent friends and all the other wonderful creatures, from the physical as from the non physical realm, for making my life such a magical ride of light and fun.
The Tarot Deck that I was talking about before, is developing beautifully. It is demanding a lot of attention and seams to have a very clear picture of how it want’s to be brought to light. I try to be the best immaculate mother to it, that I possibly can be, just follow all the corners the flow is taking and watch the tables turn. With my personal work load, I am about 1/3 in – my partner is very inspired in her painting process, and so we hope to be ready for publishing by the end of the year.

But not only that this baby is developing just fine, in the meantime I was inspired by international world events, with the idea for a book about creativity in 2017; as this is one of the major energy fields this year is powered with. My partner and I, also started talking about the value of a book about the creative process itself, as it is quite fascinating how deeply we are called to listen to the constant changes the deck is demanding from us. We have to be awake, present and willing to serve, when ever we sit down and concentrate on sharing what we receive.
eI also still adore my income work. Every time I AM spending hour with another being in a one on one training, I feel like another wonderful seed has been brought into blossoming. To have the chance and watch people go from the insecure thought of “am I crazy to think of feel a certain way”, to self-acceptance, self-love and forgiveness – which than leads for them to strength, stability and clarity in their guidance; is always a rise in my own inner degree of divine bliss.

And than, as the end or the ultimate test for every awakening seeker – there is of course the lovely family. I went back home to visit my core family during the summertime of 2016. Oh what a ride it was!! I started of with meeting good friends of mine, who had invited me to come by at their house and do some magnificent energy work with them, which I happily did. I spend several days with this closer circle of very like minded people, than I went to meet my mother. Now you need to know that karmically my mother is the only significant person o my system. She turned 85 last year and is in general in good shape, but what I noticed was a change in mindset.
When I was a child, my mother was a woman who would work and push thru every physical pain you can possibly imagine. She did so to such an extend, that I actually all my life considered her very cruel (a mix of her personal history and as well one of the B-Sides of her numerological vibration of 18/9). Maybe also because one day I had watched her slip with the ax – cut deeply into her meaty knee – take a deep inbreathe, than simply remove the ax – slip a bandage on and continue. As a little child, that was a shocker to me!
And now this same woman is talking about how normal it is to feel physical pain all the time, when you are of her age; how normal it is to not want to engage with life and seriously talk anymore, when you are of her age; and a lot about her loving connection to my beloved brother Martin, who died on Valentines Day 2011. I occasionally talk with my brother too, but I do not share any of her mindsets about aging or the physical body, and even that I did not mention that – my mother was triggered by vibration.

During this Vienna visit, I took many more trips to my mothers house, in order to spend at least 2-3hours the day with her; an amount of time I thought she would be able to handle without exploding on me in one way or the other. I have to confess that I overestimated her much more than I could even ever had imagined in my darkest childhood hatred ;-). The pattern of freak outs ended up with a frequency of 3-4 days, in which i watched her build up her frustration about “not being able to understand my world”, and than unloading this frustration in my presence.
I was fine with that, as I had sensed in my first week of traveling, that I possibly would not come back for a very long time – which also included a big chance that I would not meet her alive again – so I saw it as my last chance for a personal service to our relationship. Now let’s be honest, with today’s technology even long-term physical distance would not make any difference to a family that is close, but in our family the principle of war against everything that is bigger than the single ones imagination was “the word”.nOn my last day of meeting with family members, I came to my mothers house in a state of deep sadness about my brothers absolutely ignorant behavior, and even more the abuse he showed for the brotherhood laws for the Golden Age of Aquarius (a collective human theme, that always sets off my inner alarm system when I see people breaking the hermetic laws). That is something, I can not explain to my mom – and she is not good in holding space for other peoples pain. I tried to avoid a last clash and asked her for some time and space on her balcony, to deal with my own feelings and left for a little conscious breathing session.

But than – like I said – she is not good in handling that other people insist on having feelings ;-). She exploded over the fact that I would allow myself to come to her house, in a state of need for myself – and not perfectly poised and ready to chit-chat with her. In a moment of totally loosing it, she screamed at me “in your presence I cut all my feelings off”; to later tell me in confidence, that she also thinks of me as “the Angel of Death” – because both, my brother and my father died, when I had visited my family. It took me about five month to understand and integrate the details, of how this moment of my life was an incredible blessing.
Time to realize, that the tapestry of this ultimate rejection, that had grown from the moment on I started building my little fetus body in her womb, would unveil the last karmic strings to me that had connected us. By now, a “freedom to naturally BE ME” is the domineering feeling in my life.
Last week I had the pleasure to receive a reading of my personal Maya Calender interpretation from a dear new friend of mine, the amazing artist Gerhild Resch. She has the amazing ability to channel in a shamanic journey, how the different qualities of ones inner powers are feeling and if they are in need of any adaptations. I will happily report about the incredible details she unveiled to me in another post, but lets just say a little right now. Her explanations opened with telling me, that she had ever only shared a world like mine for one time before during her long experience, and that was in a reading she did for a child. The world she discovered in my sacred heart, was in her words that of “Alice in Wonderland” ;-), and that is just how I feel my life to be.

Dear Ones, I recently ended a piece with the following words: “I hope you are filled with a spark of inspiration right now, that you are motivated to remember the wonderfully relaxed ways in which you have been playfully creating as a child, and that you will allow them to guide you to a new mindset. No matter if you are planing to become the most important innovator of the Golden Age of Aquarius, or if you are just looking for new ideas to create your personal life, a playful approach is always helpful”. And believe me when I am saying with all my heart “I acknowledge what an incredibly blessed being I AM, to look at what I just shared with you and realize – I myself have very well followed my sparkling advice ;-)”!

Love and Blessings!
Edith

What We Can Collectively Transform This Year For The Creation Of The Golden Age

golby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the other day, when I was talking to a good friend of mine about the collective energy of this powerful year 2017, and the impacts it is supposed to make on the collective human evolution into the Golden Age of Aquarius; we where wondering what the details of this changes might be. One of the themes we all will be experiencing over the flow of this year, is the ability of self-leadership that each and every human is supposed to develop.
The first thing we all will need is the ability to see where the political and emotional leader we have trusted till now went wrong. Where the actions of our most powerful teacher are not aligned with the Brotherhood of Man that we desire for a united feeling in the Golden Age of Aquarius. The next step could lead us to explore a bit the borders and possibilities of applying emotional intelligence in our decisions, our words and actions. And than we are called to gather all our courage and step up to bring even the wildest dreams into manifestation. The quotes below are guiding us thru some steps we might have to understand on the way. 

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit and security of the people, nation or community; whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, indefeasible right, to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.
George Mason

If our economy of freedom fails to distribute wealth as ably as it has created it, the road to dictatorship will be open to any man who can persuasively promise security to all.
Will Durant

Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.
John V. Lindsay

Restrictions of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversion’s. It is the one act that could most easily defeat us.
William O. DouglassdgvA regime, an established order, is rarely overthrown by a revolutionary movement; usually a regime collapses of its own weakness and corruption and then a revolutionary movement enters among the ruins and takes over the powers that have become vacant.
Walter Lippman

The welfare of the people is the supreme law.
Motto of Missouri

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope…build(ing) a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert F. Kennedy

Those who give the first shock to a state are the first overwhelmed in its ruin; the fruits of public commotion are seldom enjoyed by him who was the first mover; he only beats the water for another’s net.
Michel De Montaigne

The French Revolution of a hundred and fifty years ago gradually ushered in an age of political equality, but the times have changed, and that by itself is not enough today. The boundaries of democracy have to be widened now so as to include economic equality also. This is the great revolution through which we are all passing.
Jawaharlal Nehru

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

In retrospect, all revolutions seem inevitable. Beforehand, all revolutions seem impossible.
Michael McFaul

The sin of silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
Abraham Lincoln

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.
Thomas JeffersonajDear Ones, this is our time – this is our chance! Align yourself over and over again with the incoming energies this year; dream your most impossible dream; be most practical and wise in your approaches to manifest the things you truly desire, and to bless this world with the full extension of your beautiful I AM light. Stand up and speak out for those who can not do so for themselves, when ever you are confronted with injustice or unfair treatment.
Love and Passionate Change!

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!
Edith
