The Spiritual Influence Of The Virgo New Moon Energies

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on September 9th we will be collectively experiencing a New Moon at 16 degrees and 59 minutes in the zodiac sign of the Virgo. This New Moon event is bringing a particularly grounding and earth orientated energy field into our world, helping us anchor all the I AM light and intense insights we have generated over the last two month of the eclipse season and Lions gate impact.
For the collective awakening process of humanity into the Golden Age of Aquarius, this is an important moment for many beings to reconnect with earthly wisdom and understand planet earth again as partner in creation, rather than an ever giving source of personal comfort and wealth.

Take a walk in the woods my friends and allow yourself to notice the deep exchange that naturally is happening between the surrounding trees, animals, plants, the light and our human emotions. We are at any time united in one field of existence on this planet, and if you truly want to experience this knowledge as a feeling, the Virgo New Moon field is the perfect time to do so.

Our emotions affect the atmosphere around us, and other people, because emotions influence the electromagnetic field our heart emits.
Sam Owen

Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of God light’ in the woods of our experience.
C.S. Lewis

Think the tree that bears nutrition:
though the fruits are picked,
the plant maintains fruition.

So give all the love you have.
Do not hold any in reserve.
What is given is not lost;
it shall return.
Kamand Kojouri
The Libra New Moon field right now is not only providing us with the amazing opportunity of finding back to a loving oneness with the forces of mother earth, but also for a renewed relationship with our physical body. A profound homecoming in understanding the sacred sanctuary that the physical body truly is for each of us. Its a perfect time to check your eating habits, your exercise pattern and take time to contemplate what you can do to increase your physical health.

Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat any time and by yourself.
Hermann Hesse

The keys to health and weight-loss: stress reduction, sleep, deep breathing, clean water, complete nutrition, sunshine, walking, stretching, meditation, love, community, laughter, dreams, perseverance, purpose, humility, action.
Bryant McGill

Last but not least, the Virgo New Moon is inviting us to take a very close look at all of our human relationships, and to profit from the healing energies it is delivering to us. Take this brillant chance and make yourself familiar with the power of forgiveness in our life, for example with a practice cycle using the Hoʻoponopono phrase.

The Hoʻoponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice centered around forgiveness. We can use this energy field that so many beings have prayed to before us already, in order to evoke a deep experience of transformation and letting go.
This is how it goes: Start with breathing into the heart, visualizing each breath coming in and out of your higher heart. Then visualize being in the same room as everybody you might want to offer your forgiveness and all you feel like owning an apology as well. Start by looking deep into the eyes of each and every one of them and than whisper the classic Hoʻoponopono phrase. Repeat the Mantra as often as it takes for you to feel the energy changing within your heart.

“I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.
I love you.”

If you are already in touch with any of the Ascended Masters active on the violet flame, than you might also enjoy working with this healing prayer, designed to combine inner alchemy with the purification of mother earth.

Violet Flame Prayer for the Earth
I AM a being of violet fire
I AM the purity God desires.
Earth is a planet of violet fire
Earth is the purity God desires.
Dear ones, I hope this bits and pieces of insides into the spiritual background of the upcoming New Moon in Virgo are helping you navigate the energy field these days. I hope you all feel strong and inspired to use the powerful earth forces present right now, and take yourself a step further along the way of manifesting your true soul dreams!
Love and Moon Blessings
Edith

Shifting To Higher Awareness With Conscious Forgiveness

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
we have collectively experienced quite an intensive time over the last six weeks. The influence of the stellar realms for the collective transformation of humanity into the Golden Age of Aquarius was immense, and quantum leaps have been achieved on personal as well as collective level. A long stormy season of solar flakes made the Moon influences even stronger, and was only topped by the Christ light that was transmitted during the Easter Fest days. Now it is time for all of us to take a little step back and spend a period of integrating the huge amounts of information, each of us has to digest.
While we are still evaluating the meaning and profoundness of the change this past weeks created, we are well of to concentrate on elevating our awareness to even higher levels of purity. In order to do so, we can use many different ways of working with the wonderful light of the violet flame of transformation and the powerful influence of forgiveness. Here are a couple of tools particularly effective for different themes.

The Hoʻoponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice centered around forgiveness. Here we use the energy field so many have prayed to already, for an even deeper experience and outcome. This is how it goes: Start with breathing deeply into your heart, visualizing each breath coming in and out of the heart. Then visualize being in the same room as your entire family tree, uniting 12 generations into the past. Start by looking deep into the eyes of your mother and father and whisper the classic Hoʻoponopono phrase, as written below. After that, visualize your father and mother saying the same sentences to each other. Keep extending the process step by step through the 12 generations of your family tree, allowing the family line to cleans and rejuvenate.

I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.
I love you.

Over the years of a lifetime, we meet many people and even that such meetings often seam random to us, on the bigger picture they have an organized flow and reason. That’s the driving force behind surprisingly meeting the same people again, after making a big energetic shift. This is a very beautiful Mantra to keep in your heart and mind, which can be used immediately when ever a situation reminds you of pain already shared in the past.

WITH ALL THE POWER OF MY HEART,
WITH ALL THE PURITY OF LOVE,
I FORGIVE MYSELF AND OTHERS.
I NOW
SET US FREE
FROM OUR MUTUAL CREATIONS OF SUFFERING

And last but not least, if the intense energies of the past weeks have reactivated rather profound emotional irritations, and all the helpful flow from the stellar realms has shown you uncomfortable wounds still open, you can always create for yourself a little forgiveness ritual.

Here are the steps for such a forgiveness ritual:
~ Prepare yourself with several sheets of either loos paper or a college block, and a pen. Deposit a liter of water, maybe a little snack and tissues close to your writing spot. To prepare the room for your inner work, put on either some smoothing music, or music that triggers your memories. Burn some incense or sage in the space before starting!

~ Take at least 3 hours time in which you agree with your immediate surrounding to be entirely undisturbed from everyday needs.

~ Start your exercise with a 15min meditation or breath work of your choice, in order to calm your system and strengthen your inner connection with the higher self.

~ Take time for contemplation on the things you want to let go of now. All the things you hope to transform and lift into a higher understanding. Write about the situations and people you wish to forgive.  Be as clear and authentic as possible with your true feelings. Express in authentic, your true emotions representing words. Don’t force yourself to be fake friendly! If you feel like saying … “this stupid asshole has done me wrong, but I finally want get over that, so I gonna forgive it anyway”, do so! Plus, don’t forget yourself on the list!!! For every person you have to forgive, you can forgive yourself for having brought the situation into your life. Also when taking time for deeper reflection, you might actually find in a different situation, that you wronged others with your own behavior in similar ways. Here are some example sentences you might enjoy integrating in your list as well.

I forgive myself for judging myself and others.
I forgive myself for all honest human mistakes in life.
I forgive myself for every time I dropped the awareness for my own divinity.
I forgive myself for not taking care enough of my inner child.
I forgive myself for not remembering the powers that are lying within me.
I forgive myself for holding on to my pain for such a long time.
I forgive myself for not loving the creator that I AM.
I forgive and move on – NOW!
And so it is!

~ When you feel that your list is done, make a little fire. Stand straight in front of it. Breathe deeply and feel your emotions clearing while you read your list one more time. When you are done reading, put the pages one by one into the flames and slowly burn them, while  watching the alchemy of its change happen!! Keep breathing in the transformation and allow the fire to elevate your emotional body.

~ After the end of the ritual, act from that moment on in the awareness that the change is already done!Dear ones, I hope you feel encouraged and inspired to be brave and dive into forgiveness these days.  You deserve to live this life in the ease and blessing of your I AM presence. Applying authentic forgiveness can lead you there!! Keep breathing deeply and repeating the words as often as needed.
Blessings an Courage ;-)!
Edith

Woman is by nature a shaman…

This is a brief summary of a visual presentation, first shown in 1986, which was given in September 2005 at the Shamanic Studies Conference in San Rafael, California.

A Chukchee proverb declares, “.” (1) Yet the female dimension of this realm of spiritual experience has often been slighted. Mircea Eliade believed that women shamans represented a degeneration of an originally masculine profession, yet was hard put to explain why so many male shamans customarily dressed in women’s clothing and assumed other female-gendered behaviors. Nor does the masculine-default theory account for widespread traditions, from Buryat Mongolia to the Bwiti religion in Gabon, that the first shaman was a woman.
In fact, women have been at the forefront of this field worldwide, and in some cultures, they predominate. This was true in ancient China and Japan, as it still is in modern Korea and Okinawa, as well as among many South African peoples and northern Californians such as the Karok and Yurok. There are countless other examples, including the machi of the Mapuche in southern Chile and the babaylan and catalonan of the Philippines.
images
Images, oral traditions, and historical descriptions show women as invokers, healers, herbalists, oracles and diviners, ecstatic dancers, shapeshifters, shamanic journeyers, and priestesses of the ancestors. The Chinese Wu were ecstatic priestesses who danced to the music of drums and flutes until they reached trance, receiving shen (spirits) into their bodies, healing and prophesying under their inspiration, speaking in tongues, swallowing swords and spitting fire. The power of the shen gathered around the whirling dancers was said to cause objects to rise into the air, to prevent wounds from forming when the dancers slashed themselves with knives.
Similar descriptions were recorded by Greco-Roman visitors to Anatolia: “At Castabala, in Cappadocia, the priestesses of an Asiatic goddess, whom the Greeks called Artemis Perasia, used to walk barefoot through a furnace of hot charcoal and take no harm.” (2)
Shaman
Certain female burials from ancient Central Asia have been designated as shamanic priestesses by archaeologists Natalia Polosmak and Jeanine Davis-Kimball. The priestess of Ukok (fifth century BCE) was buried in a three-foot-tall framed headdress adorned with a Tree of Life, with gilded felines and birds on its branches. Similar finds have been excavated at Ussun’ in south Kazakhstan, and from the Ukraine to the Tarim basin, with recurrent themes of the Tree of Life headdress, amulets, incense, medicine bags, and sacramental mirrors. Such mirrors are also seen in the Bactrian region of Afghanistan, held facing out against the body, and they still figure as initiatory devices wielded by female adepts in Tibet. The overwhelmingly female mikogami of Japan also kept the “sacred mirror” of the sun goddess Amaterasu.
My visual presentation Woman Shaman includes a sequence of women shapeshifting into animal form or riding on the backs of shamanic steeds. These themes recur in many shamanic traditions, and are vividly illustrated in modern Arctic carvings. An Aleut ivory (circa 1816) shows a woman shaman wearing an animal mask. Other examples from the mid-20th century include “Woman Riding a Bear” by Cecilia Arnadjuk, Repulse Bay, Canada; “Woman/Polar Bear” by Odin Maratse, Greenland; a walrus-tusked “Woman Shaman” by Nancy Pukingrnak of Baker Lake; a half-woman, half-walrus piece titled “Woman Shaman Transforming Herself”; and “Medicine Woman” by Kaka of Cape Dorset.

The darwisa or maraboutes of North Africa bear Islamic titles, but practice much older North African customs. Among the Tunisian cave-dwellers, the darwisa cures sick people from possession from the jnun. In the ritual, she plays drum rhythms to discover which jinn caused illness; when she hits the right one, the person begins to dance. Then the darwisa talks to the spirit about what caused the illness and what is required to cure it. (3)
Codices produced by Aztec artists shortly after the Spanish conquest show women presiding over the temescal (sweat lodge). One of the invocations sung by such a priestess was recorded: “Mother of the gods and us all, whose creative and lifegiving power shone in the Temezcalli, also named Xochicalli, the place where she sees sacred things, sets to right what has been deranged in human bodies, makes young and tender things growing and strong, and where she aids and cures.” (4)
curanderaInvocatory chants have remained an element of Mexican Indian shamanism. One of the great master was Maria Sabina, “the woman who knows how to swim in the sacred,” whose incantations seem to have acted as a means of entering into deep states of consciousness. Laying on of hands was part of her healing practice. Further north, in California, Bernice Torrez of the Kashaya Pomo, healed by touching and removing spirits of illness from the body of the sick person. She was the daughter of Essie Parrish, the great yomta, a title which means “Song.” This prophet-seeress carried chants for ceremonies, healing, and control of the elements.
Chant and shaking a sacred rattle are important elements in the practice of Katjambia, a Himba medicine woman in Namibia. As she shakes the rattle, she calls out Njoo, Njoo, in a “secret language from Angola.” After absorbing the negative energies into her own body, Katjambia returns to the sacred fire of her ancestors, who release them. A song by the Chilean composer and folklorist Violeta Parra celebrates the powers of the Mapuche machi, describing how she presides over the guillatún ceremonies and how her shamanizing cures the sick and brings a crop-threatening rain to an end.
The healing power of female shamans was occasionally stated to have been so far-reaching that they were described as being able to restore life to the dead. So it was told of Pa Sini Jobu, great Tungutu of the Bosso people in the middle Niger region. Her method of dancing to ecstasy and shifting into the form of a great bird echoes the story told of Isis. Both the goddess and the Tungutu are described as beating their wings over the dead (a ram, in Pa Sini Jobu’s case) and bringing them to life. (The Colchian sorceress Medea is also pictured bringing a ram to life, using a cauldron, herbs, and incantations.) In western Africa, the sorceress Kulutugubaga has the power to heal all and bring the dead to life. She is the last of the legendary Nine Sorceresses of Mande.

Reviving the dead was one of the marvels performed by Yeshe Tsogyel, a foundational figure of Tibetan Buddhism. In Lady of the Lotus Born, she says, “… In Nepal I brought a dead man back to life… My body journeyed like a rainbow in celestial fields…” (5) This 8th-century poem is loaded with shamanistic content, recast in a Buddhist mold. The shamanic Bönpo religion is known to have contributed many elements to Tibetan Buddhism.
A Manchurian epic, Nishan Shaman, turns around the story of a woman who is the most powerful shaman in the country. She is called upon to revive the son of a rich man after countless others had failed. She beats her drum, chants, and sinks as if lifeless herself while journeying to the Otherworld, where she meets up with Omosi-mama, the “divine grandmother” who “causes leaves to unfurl and the roots to spread properly,” who is the giver of souls and protectress of children. It was she who ordained that Nishan would become a great shaman.
Of course, Nishan finds the soul of the dead boy. But she is pursued by her long-dead husband, who demands to be saved as well, but she calls for a great crane to seize him and throw him back into the city of the dead. The shaman is hailed as a heroine when she comes back to the upper world and showered with riches. Later she faces repression from Confucian authorities who accuse her of not being an obedient wife, and they burn her shamanic regalia and drum. (6)
KAKAO BILD
In much the same way, Spanish colonials persecuted women shamans in the Philippines, calling them “devil-ridden old women” and “witches,” and destroying their shrines and sacred objects. (7) Maya oracles and shamans faced the same treatment; the Tzoltzil priestess María Candelaria raised an insurrection in Chiapas in 1712 to resist the repression of the indigenous religion.
Several hundred years ago, the Jesuit Acosta wrote that Peruvian witches were shapeshifters who could journey through the skies and foretell the future “by means of certain stones or other things they highly venerate.” He and other Spanish sources agreed that the witches were mostly old women.(8) The colonials imposed their own preconceptions on Peruvian shamans, notably that of the devil and flying ointments, and persecuted these Quechua and Aymara women shamans as witches.
The Peruvian Inquisition forbade seeking knowledge through dreams or signs in the sky or through vision quests: “the said women other times go out to the country by day and at night, and take certain brews of herbs and roots, called achuma and chamico and coca, with which they deceive themselves and numb their senses, and the illusions and fantastic scenes which they experience there, they think and claim afterwards as revelations, or certain news of what will happen.” (9)

Inquisitors tried the curandera Juana Icha for healing with the power of the old Quechua gods. She had offered corn meal, coca and chicha to the mountain spirit Apo Parato. An Indian informer told the monks that she “worships the earth and the stars and cries to the water.” (10)
