The Spiritual Impact The Aries Full Moon Is Promising

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on September 24th or September 25th, depending on where we are located on the planet, we are collectively experiencing the influence of this years Full Moon in Aries. For our united awakening process into the Golden Age of Aquarius, this is the beginning of a brand new moon cycle as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The moon will be positioned at one degree and 59 minutes of this intensively fiery zodiac sign, igniting our passion for new beginnings and fresh starts. My recommendation is to deeply align yourself with this highly motivating energy field, and to fill up your batteries for wonderful new projects and powerful manifestations in harmony with the bigger picture. 

Each day is a new beginning, the chance to do with it what should be done and not to be seen as simply another day to put in time.
Catherine Pulsifer

As you begin to live a more positive life, it simply makes sense that you take a look at your dreams and goals to see if you are living in a way that will best allow you to accomplish them.
Chris Johnston

You need to learn from your mistakes to start a new beginning because if you stop then you will not be able to accomplish your goals in life.
Ivan Hakin

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.
Louis L’Amour

This wonderful Aries Full Moon energy field is asking us all to be brave in our self-refection and to courageously address our shortcomings this days, to expose ourselves once more to an adventurous life and to step out of our comfort zone into a profounder relationship with the unknown.

Whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into your old comfort zone, pat yourself on the back and say, “I must be growing,” and continue moving forward.
T. Harv Eker

We have to be honest about what we want and take risks rather than lie to ourselves and make excuses to stay in our comfort zone.
Ray Bennett

Coming out of your comfort zone is tough in the beginning, chaotic in the middle, and awesome in the end…because in the end, it shows you a whole new world.
Manoj Arora
One of the most beautiful blessings this Aries Full Moon is providing for the human collective, is that the possibility to make personal breakthroughs is wide open these days. Take a moment to contemplate the themes of your life that you can burn in the passionate fire of the Aries energies and give yourself a little push to rise into living on a higher vibrating level. It might help to develop more clarity, if you ask yourself the following questions:

How do I define a inner breakthrough in my personal development?
In which field of my life do I need to make an important shift?
In which area of my life can I imagine a bigger future for myself?
What elements of life might such a transformed future unveil for me?

Breakthroughs happen when limiting thoughts and behaviors are challenged.
F. Fredrickson

All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs.
Anthony Robbins

A breakthrough is a moment in time when the impossible becomes possible.
Tony Robbins

Make sure to check the positioning of this Aries Full Moon event in your personal chart. There is a big chance that we all will feel triggered in the areas that are in the spotlight right now in our personal life. Considering that we also have the energies of new beginnings and personal breakthroughs in the team these days, we might suddenly find ourselves able to react to life in ways we never could imagine before. To use our self-awareness wisely and apply emotional intelligence in our

If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nations.
When there is order in the nations, there will be peace in the world.
Confucius

Look at the evidence and be willing to question your own truths, and be willing to scrutinize things that you hold dearly because that way, that transparency, that self-awareness, will protect you from ever becoming somebody whose beliefs somehow make them have myopic vision about what could be.
Jason SilvaDear Ones, I hope you all feel passionately excited for this magical Aries Full Moon event, and that you take your chance to make a big shift again into the vibration of the Golden Age of Aquarius. May you all joyfully burn for life and bring forward the things you see hidden in your soul, that wish to come to light these days. 
Love and Full Moon Blessings!
Edith

Awakening – Tantra & The Collective Evolution of Human Sexuality

ATAntra
by Edith Boyer-Telmer
Dear Friends,
allow me to express my bliss, my gratitude and happiness about the ripple effect of discussion, my last few posts regarding our human sexuality have created within the Facebook community. I love to watch when a theme comes up for the human collective and one little impulse, turns into a full exploration of the many dimensions humans have experienced on this particular theme. Shows all the ideas and concepts we are called to heal and gives us the chance to take another leap of faith into the unknown. Well, we are the once we have been waiting for. The time and energies have chosen, the timing is “NOW”!!! We shift another little step deeper into the Golden Age of Aquarius and the openness for a new human sexuality, within a new relationship paradigm. The first brave warriors, men and women have stepped up and spoken out for us, so we can collectively be courageous and find true authentic, personal sexual expression.  Which by the way is the energy field, the upcoming Full Moon is reinforcing ;-)!! One way to go, are the teachings and studies of Tantra.
Tantra was originally created by yogic masters to shatter any preoccupation with the ego and transform feelings of “lower frequencies” like anger, rage, frustration, hate, greed or jealousy into unconditional love. By training and disciplined practice of tools like conscious breathing, meditation techniques, control of sexual energy in order to channel it into energy for conscious co-creation of the web of life. Living a tantric inspired live, leads to constant transformation of our consciousness to higher and more refined levels of our divine expression on earth. In practicing Tantra the individual develops a feeling for “the one holy spirit” unfolding into “the many materialized existences”.
Liberation from suffering and separation is achieved, when we traverse this path backward: from the seemingly many we find materialized – all the way back to THE ONE. To study, contemplate, become and then share the teachings in life, creates a natural respect for all living beings. A deeper awareness of the natural rhythms and cycles of your physical body, and the energetic bodes surrounding us. And, this finding of “the One behind the Many” is only possible while we are in the physical body. In fact, our body is the loving, secure vessel with boundaries – available for you as personal sacred space. That’s the reason why Tantra, in opposite to the most spiritual practices, is actively using the physically body for healing. Involving breathing, sound, movement and understanding of the sacred masculine and sacred feminine sexual energies as training’s tools.ChacrasThe text is an extract from Lao Tzu’s Hua Hu Ching. Enjoy!!!
A person’s approach to sexuality is a sign of their level of evolution. ‘Un-evolved’ persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body’s other organs and systems. Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged, and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap. For those who aspire to the higher realms of living, there is an angelic dual cultivation. Because every portion of the body, mind, and spirit yearns for the integration of yin and yang, angelic intercourse is led by the spirit rather than the sexual organs. Where ordinary intercourse is effort-full, angelic cultivation is effortless, relaxed, quiet, and natural.
Where ordinary intercourse unites sex organs with sex organs, angelic cultivation unites spirit with spirit, mind with mind, and every cell of one body with every cell of the other body. Culminating not in dissolution but in integration, it is an opportunity for a men and women to mutually transform and uplift each other into the realm of bliss and wholeness. The sacred ways of angelic intercourse are taught only by one who has himself achieved total energy integration, and taught only to students who follow the Integral Way with profound devotion, seeking to purify and pacify the entire world along with their own being. However, if your virtue is especially radiant, it can be possible to open a pathway to the subtle realm and receive these celestial teachings directly from the immortals.

Here are some simple steps to start with:
1. Ask yourself what you need
Our collective world is so full of mixed signals about sexuality, it is hard for the most untrained people to truly feel their own sexuality. Billboards are selling us daily just about every product on earth, thru sexual expression or presentation of their models – while for example breast feeding in public is considered “out of order” in most western societies. Well thing is, the true capacity of physical satisfaction the human sexuality has, unfolds only when we are feeling safe, feeling heard, feeling seen in our wholeness, and respected in our boundaries! And how could that possible happen, if we don’t know this details first?

2. Practice Deep Breathing
I recommend before you do any practice exchange with your partner or people you know, practice for a little while the art of conscious breathing separated from another. That will give you a good foundation to start with. If your practice goes as far as physical love making, get in the habit of slowing down and resonating with your partner by breathing together first. Conscious sexuality is not about the orgasm. It’s not even about intercourse. When we focus our attention on the breath, we move out of a goal oriented, physical process and into a more ‘feeling state’ connected to the subtle, non-linear, energetic body.yogi3. Agree on the Ground Rules
Prior to entering into a sexual relationship, have a conscious dialogue around basics such as sexually transmitted diseases, what type of birth control you’ll use and even what happens if you do get pregnant. Also speak about the difference in how it feels to practice sexuality with or without condom. And decide from there, how you will create your encounters. If you find yourself having trouble discussing touchy subjects with your partner, it’s a strong indication that there is not enough care, friendship, emotional connection or psychological development between you. In other words, if you can’t be honest about your needs or truth, ask yourself why? And if you than really feel safe enough to explore and expand your own inner world, while being in the presence of this person.

I hope this little set of insights allowed you to see that in traditional Tantra the focus is not at all on sexuality, but on the unification of body, mind, soul & spirit under consideration of the internal divine feminine and divine masculine existence. With some devotion and practice it can become your individual link to your personal divine guidance and even beyond, to a conscious manifestation of your souls deepest dreams and desire. Maybe a post of simple exercises to start with will follow in the coming days, in case I feel inspired by your responds ;-). See if you can get in touch with feeling inspired by “THE NEW”… just approach it as a game… there is no right or wrong, just personal authentic truth of what we really feel and need.
Love and Blessings

Death doulas: helping people face up to dying

Dear Friends,
this is the most beautiful timeline synchronicity. After the articles about holding space for other people and holding space for yourself, now the voice of a woman who professionally is holding space for the death process. A so called “death doula”.
I don’t agree with her on – we don’t need to be spiritual – as we are spiritual beings at any time of our lives on earth, but I agree that there is no need for a sudden awareness of that fact during death – where there was no in life.  In our western culture we have long forgotten to connect with the real meaning of death and mad it a medical drama, instead of a natural occurrence of rhythms and cycles (see picture of the rhythms of death in the middle). Having choice over time and space, our companionship and approach of death, are crucial details of a self-empowered feeling.
Details that make our death a celebrated ritual. They give us the feeling of control – in an uncontrollable situation – and the dignity to take the very last in-, and out-breath as an act of free will.

May each of your breath be one of joy, gratitude and freedom – till the very last!
Blessings Edith

People often seek support to bring a new life into the world, but what about when we are preparing to leave it? Rebecca Green talks about what she does: How to die: five positive steps to deal with death top five regrets of the dying, Rebecca Green is a death doula.
The woman sitting opposite me in an Edinburgh cafe is called Rebecca Green. She is in her early 40s, with a soft Birmingham accent and a gentle, smiling face. She is a nurse. But she also does something else – something that has prompted both fascination and animosity in those she has told about it. She is a death doula.
Birth doulas support women and their families through the process of a child being born. And death doulas support people during that other huge event – the one we don’t like to talk about. The idea is hardly new, but in the western world, death has become a medical matter, says Hermione Elliott, director of the charity Living Well Dying Well. The organisation is pioneering the use of death doulas in the UK. “In other cultures around the globe, and for thousands of years, people have stayed in their homes to die, looked after by their family and local community. We want to see a return to this.”
So how did Green become a death doula? “People sense that I am open,” she says. “When I was 19, a crotchety old aunt who was dying asked for me. I could tell she knew she was dying. And she knew that I knew. She just wanted to see it in someone else’s eyes – the truth of it. Then she relaxed. She was in a nursing home and no one would be open about it. She didn’t like the lying and the pretending – it irritated her.”
“Then, in my 20s, not long after I qualified as a nurse, I was lodging with a woman. She became ill, and asked me to go to the doctor with her. I think we both knew that something was happening. I was with her when she was given her diagnosis, and lived with her until she passed away. Her two sons, both friends of mine, had young babies and full-time jobs, so they couldn’t become live-in carers. There was no question that I wouldn’t do what I did. That’s how I became a death doula.”

5 rhythms of death-page-001Green went on to work in hospices, but found it wasn’t for her. “They do a great job, don’t get me wrong. I just found it all a bit holy: I’d drive home listening to thrash metal as an antidote. Some people want that, to be patted and stroked as they pass away. But others want to walk into it, to die alive – not die dying, doing as they’re told.
“I’ve never advertised,” Green says. “It’s all just word of mouth. I don’t always take payment, either. People want different things from me: it could be anything from being a companion at a bedside, to providing practical support for the family. Or aiding conversations with the person’s doctor, which will then help with making decisions about treatment. Or navigating their way through the structure of the NHS. I’ve even met up with a man who simply had a fear of death. We talked for a couple of hours, and that was it, I never saw him again.”
Although some death doulas have a spiritual approach, Green doesn’t. “Some people will hate me for this, but so be it. If a person has not found ‘spirituality’ to be useful to them before they became ill, why introduce it when a person is facing death? I feel it’s a way of avoiding the living person in front of you – and avoiding yourself. Providing a ‘solution’ to this ‘problem’ of death, with a story. It’s big business, this spirituality. It preys on the vulnerable and it’s a crutch that’s going to break when you lean on it. You have your life, your living moments, and yourself – right up to the very end. You are enough – you don’t need to be spiritual.”
Interest in – and demand for – death doulas is on the rise. “It’s because most of us would prefer to die at home, cared for gently,” says Barbara Chalmers of Final Fling, the UK’s first “one-stop shop for end-of-life planning”. “The NHS isn’t the place for that,” Chalmers says. “We’ve lost our community doula skills: the women in the past who looked after birthing and dying. So more and more people – mostly women – are training again in these skills and offering end-of-life companionship as a service. It would be interesting to work out the cost of this for the NHS, instead of them paying to keep dying people in a ward and continuing the notion that death is a medical failure rather than the natural conclusion to life.”
music_love_wideweb__470x311,0I wonder how someone who works so closely with death feels about her own mortality. “Death doesn’t scare me because I don’t know what it is,” Green says. “I suppose I’m saying that the unknown doesn’t scare me. I find the idea that one day I won’t be here any more strange and impossible to imagine.
“But it’s also a fact that I haven’t always been here – I only got here in 1969. Where was I in 1968, or 1945? I have no idea. It makes me smile to think of this.” So does that mean that she doesn’t worry about death? “No, I don’t worry about death. I worry about things like paying my bills. I wish I didn’t, but I do.”
So what does she say to people who are frightened of death? “I don’t offer any views or advice. I don’t try to prove that death isn’t scary. I can’t – I don’t know what death is. And I don’t soothe or placate people when they’re afraid, but rather walk directly into the state of fear with them, as a companion, and without going into a state of fear myself. This can be done as a conversation, as a walk outside together, and often – in fact in most cases – what we talk about is not death, but something else.”
