What Blessings The Gemini Full Moon is Bringing

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on November 23rd and 24th, we will worldwide experience the collective impact of a Full Moon in zero degree and 52 minutes of the star sign Gemini. What we already know is that Gemini is an air sign and rather quick in changing its mood, while experiencing the internal transition from one personality level to another. This rather instable quality can turn into one of the biggest challenges during this Full Moon phase as its inviting us to be selfish and let our badass side run wild; but if we work internally with our own emotions and energies, it also can bring the incredible blessing of finding safety of the mind while witnessing the process of transformation within our own personality. A state of existence that for western trained mindsets often takes years of training to achieve. 

During the influence of this Gemini Full Moon we collectively might be rather overactive on the mental level. This includes the challenge to find inner peace and a meditative quality of quietness of the mind, and at the same time gives us a great opportunity to go with the movable wind energies and be open to shift our mindset at any minute.

The problem that faces us is the problem of awakening. What we lack is not an ideology or doctrine that will save the world. What we lack is mindfulness of what we are, of what our situation really is. We need to wake up in order to rediscover our human sovereignty. We are riding a horse that is running out of control. The way of salvation is a new culture in which human beings are encouraged to rediscover their deepest nature.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Always be respectful and open-minded when listening to another man’s beliefs. What you reject today could be your mantra tomorrow. Man’s evolution is all about transformations. An unexpected experience you have one day can change you forever.
Suzy Kassem

Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.
Alan Alda

When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.
Roy T. Bennett
The energy field around this Gemini Full Moon is deeply inviting us to be more adventurous than we usually would be. If we are wise, we are looking at this opportunity from the soul level and take the themes that we were working on during the Scorpio New Moon to the next level. Let your soul demand the path right now and allow yourself the creation of a brand new self-awareness!

Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world making the most of one’s best.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

What you knew in your childhood is true; the other world of magic and enchantment is real, sometimes terribly real – and certainly more real than the factual reality which our culture has built up, brick by brick, to shut out color and light and prevent us from flying.
Patrick Harpur

As we cleanse our bloodlines of persecution, fear and pain; no longer the womb of grief and devastation; we are birthing and weaving the new earth in the womb of pleasure and creation.

Last but not least its worth mentioning that there is an invitation in the air to discover and apply brand new ways of communication in our daily life, as the winds of change will challenge and evolve our ability to connect with self and others. Get off your electronics and into the world of meditation, energetic communication and telepathic connection my friends and you might unveil brand new realms for yourself.

Self-Communication is the most important of all communication skills, for the way we talk to ourselves will determine our beliefs, actions and even the way we live.
Unknown

To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
Tony Robbins

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t being said. The art of reading between the lines is a life long quest of the wise.
Shannon L. Alder
Dear Ones, I hope you are all ready to receive some more teachings about the upcoming direction this world is taking and that you will enjoy letting the wild winds of change into your life, so the Golden Age of Aquarius vibrations can pass through your system like a fresh summer breeze and give you the current updates. Take your chances and allow your mind to think in ways it never did before!
Love and Full Moon Blessings!
Edith

What’s Wrong with Voluntourism? “Everything” – This Beneficiary Feels

aaDear Friends,
at the beginning of last month I shared an expect from the article “are you a truly spiritual person, or simply full of it”, written & translated by Giulio Pietro Benati, where the author shared his thoughts and concerns about the “fake spiritualism”, that also seams to have made its way into the awakening movement of our society. The question was raised what the student of spiritual practices truly gains, when the exercise is rather consumed as under fashion demands, than driven by the desire to surrender to the teachings in everyday life. Today’s piece is a cry for more attention towards our giving, and if everything given as a present – anyway still has a price in this world.

Since eleven years of my life, I have the incredible blessing of spending time in my wonderful second home; San Marcos La Laguna, Solola, in Guatemala. In this little highland country side town, we are living together in a wild mix of world people. The original San Marcos population are Mayan people, from the tribe of the Kaqckikel, and the rest are a crazy colorful mix of foreigners, from all countries, cultures, character, colors and languages of the world. You could say the divine plan has used its complete crayon color box in San Marcos La Laguna.
Something I watched over all these years is – the coming of the archetype of the “helper and healer”, with or without any kind of religious background, inspired to “safe or local population” from their lot. People who often very quickly, very profoundly get frustrated with the locals respond (or NON RESPOND) to their efforts. So I found it very interesting to read this intense piece from a person who actually received all this “supporters” gives AND takes.

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

Dear Ones, I hope you enjoy the read. I hope the authors fiery words will make one or the other of us check in again, if all our givings are truly as unconditionally as we would like them to be.
Love & Peaceful Awakening!

Edith

pocc5q6kw06photo: Prisca                               I am the default brown girl in your dorm room pictures. 

written by Prisca Dorcas:
I will preface this by saying that a lot of my doctors and dentists were white Americans, and that I have a soft spot in my heart for those people because they are working hard to change someone else’s life. Access to medical care, good medical care, is nearly impossible for many poor folks in Latin American countries and the Caribbean. These doctors and dentists came into communities that most outsiders will not step foot in.
In fact, my first tooth was pulled by a white American dentist when I was a kid growing up in Nicaragua, and I remember the care and attention I got like it was yesterday. You always remember your first visit to a dentist, it sticks with you. Another time I had a huge fall off my bike, and a white American dentist was staying at our home and he sewed me up, giving me seven very necessary stitches. I will always remember this. I also remember that they never asked me for a picture. They were too busy helping people. I hold these people who come to our countries and do that kind of work in high regard. Voluntourists and missionaries are another story.

Why We Should Listen to Our Inner Brujas:
Gospel Outreach came to Nicaragua when I was a little girl. All of my toys, clothes, and much of our food came from ships that were stocked with their goods. I remember walking into those boats and seeing piles of toys and boxes upon boxes of minute soups. These much-needed supplies were crucial to my childhood. We were that poor. But the people sending this very important stuff decided that they needed to see the faces of the lives they were changing. It was not enough to just help, they wanted to see where their selfless donations were going.
I have many childhood memories in Nicaragua that include voluntourists and missionaries. I remember that they were really kind, almost too kind. When you grow up poor, you have a lot of street smarts and reading people comes second nature. It was like they were trying to make up for something. They really wanted us to like them, because they loved us — indiscriminately. It was the sort of love where they did not get our mailing addresses or phone numbers, because it was not about becoming lifelong friends. They loved being around me, it was something about my poverty, brownness, and how they felt like they were saving me. They loved that feeling.
It was as though in exchange for life-giving goods we had to give them a life-changing experience. We had to welcome them to our lands with our arms wide open, as though they were blameless as to how our country was in such distress. As if they did not inherit their comfort and safety from the presidents and governments that they had elected who had done this to us. They wanted us to say mil gracias to their smiling faces as if reparations were not due, deserved, and rightfully ours.indexAn Open Letter to My Gringo Boyfriend:
We have always been able to see right through this facade. Since I was five years old I saw right through it. I probably did not have the words as a kid, but I knew you were trying to get something out of me. I do not have fond memories of the Beckys and Chads who came to my country and took pictures with me so that they could hang the photos in their dorm rooms and go on with their lives. Those same Beckys did not stand up against Trump’s xenophobic agenda. The Chads stayed silent during that Cinco de Mayo party that their roommates hosted, perpetuating problematic stereotypes about ALL Latinxs. The Beckys know that NAFTA and CAFTA rulings keep kids like me in poverty, but still shop at stores known for using slave labor and sweatshops.
Those Chads and Beckys have never done anything for me. When they’re asked why they went to my country, they probably said that they wanted to help, but after they were done planting the trees that their church donated, they went home and did nothing besides wear our trajes tipicos. You left and told your life-changing story, but you’ve dismantled nothing. You’ve helped no one but yourself. What have you done for those brown children in your dorm-room picture since you left? I personally resent that you have pictures of us brown poor children, because while we probably changed your life, you’ve done nothing for us but used our brown bodies as a reminder of your good deeds.

The Spiritual Effects Of The Planetary Alignment January 20th

aaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
we just discussed the other day the many side effects of the high frequencies that are transmitted to us right now by heavens above, and already we are engaging with the next impact created by five visible planets that will appear simultaneously aligned before dawn tomorrow, January 20th 2016. And we are talking about the powerful combination of Venus (our planetary impact for unconditional love and money), Saturn (representative of the law of cause end effect, planet of karma), Mars (planet of passion and war), Jupiter (planet of good fortune) and Mercury ( planet of communication interplanetary and external)!!!

Knowing all that and putting it in perspective to the resent transformation process we collectively have been engaged in, you can imagine that this energetic alignment can turn into an incredible blessing, or a massive burden – totally depending on where the human individual is standing in their personal development. When you remember my post from last month, that our first chakra, the collective root chakra, has been cleansed and transformed, well we will see the first glimpses of the outcome this changes will bring, during the impact of this cosmic event.
The first chakra, base or root chakra, as it is also called, carries the vibrations of our most earth-centered, most physical energies. It stands for our inherited belief systems, our family tree, our passion to be a conscious part of the spiral dance of creation, our personal survival, our beliefs and fears around money, our authentic needs when it comes to possessions, and our capacity to life as spirit beings fully present in our physical appearance – the body. In the Zodiac it belongs to the signs Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus, the earth signs!!! Please also take in contemplation that this five powerful, leading planets are simultaneously visible on that night, for the first time since 2005, why now if not to support us in the next collective mega jump to higher consciousness??aOver all this amazing stellar event gives all the people who are ready to drop what ever happened in their past and come to a place of inner peace and forgiveness, for all they have been part of, to complete their cycle of karma and step into the self-empowered position of a human co-creator in harmony with the divine plan for the Golden Age of Aquarius. A healthy root chakra connects us with our pure life force, with physical vitality, to our core family – in a healthy way , the society we live in and the global community we all are part of. Unfortunately for the ones who are not ready to let go of themes like war, greed, jealousy, territorial behavior and violence, the issues of survival, emotional dysfunction, high levels of internal stress, increased anxiety, inner restlessness and a tendency to violent outbursts can appear.

Helpful questions to ask ourselves today are:
*) What kind of belief system did I inherit or learn from my family? Does that fit my dreams and soul desires??
*) Is there anything unfinished emotionally or energetically, between me and my parents or other people from my family tree, that I feel capable of forgiving NOW?
*) What limiting beliefs did I learn about personal survival, territory and money?
*) How clear are my personal boundaries when it comes to sexuality, my money, emotions,…
*) Could it be easier for me to bond with others and feel connection?
*) Am I about to create sickness for myself, by continuing self-harming behavior?

And as they are corresponding with our root ckakra, you also might encounter health problems like joint pain, lower backache, elimination problems, constipation, and poor immune system function, over the coming few days. Watch your symptoms closely and us the internet to gather information about the spiritual meaning of your issues!!a1Dear Friends, I hope that this information will help you to navigate the ruff patches along the road of our immensely quick developing collective awakening process!! Hope you are still well connected with your conscious breathing techniques and find stability and safety in the guidance of your own soul’s song. Keep burning the past in your inner flame of passion, and celebrate the magic of BEING ALIVE!!
Blessings and Love!  Edith
