A Radical Virgo Vision in Action Post
Here’s an article I invite you to consider on the website The Usual Routine (T.U.R.). It states that the ancients saw all planets moving in direct motion as opportune times of great fortune. It’s tantamount to the entire cosmos shouting as we journey through space, “All systems go!” All planets on deck and the people on them!
This cosmic event is the perfect time to kick off my first Radical Vision in Action post. The two levels where we can help ourselves and the world condition are on the inner plane and in the outer world. For this first Radical Vision/Action post, I’d like to focus on the inner plane or the energy field surrounding all living things.
From here on out, I’ll refer to it simply as “the field.” Most people underestimate the power of the thoughts and feelings we pump into the field. I like this paragraph from Noetic Balancing on how this all fits together:
“The energy field surrounding living things is difficult or impossible to measure using current scientific techniques. However, science and spirituality are on a convergent course. Eventually, we will have instruments that can reflect an individual’s state of balance. When we turn the corner from science, we must consider the universal characteristics of energy. Quantum physics states that energy and matter are interchangeable and the String Theory suggests that differences in physical matter are simply variations in energy vibrations. In a similar fashion, each human is composed the divine energy of the Soul in the form of body, thought, and spirit. Energy does not emanate or reflect from a person, the energy is the person, the core. This understanding is fundamental to maintaining your energy field and body in harmony. Since the body is a manifestation of human energy, dis-harmony in the energy field will cause dis-ease in the body. If the human energy field is out of balance, the body will be out of balance.”
The same goes, of course, for collective bodies like families, political parties, countries—and indeed, the world. To help yourself balance and heal yourself, to take advantage of a period where you can surf the cosmic waves easily helps not only you but the entire universe.
What is this world coming to?
If you find yourself thinking or articulating some variation of this phrase, know you have the power to help change it on the inner, in the field, especially during this month-long window of opportunity.
For the next 30 days, I invite you to participate in a Radical experiment. Here are my suggested game rules:1. Do not feed your fears.2. Envision the world as you want it to be.3. In your visions, do no harm to others or yourself.4. Participate in collective meditations affirming peace and wisdom in our world, such as Rare Astrology: All Planets Direct Synchronized Meditation or The Liberty Bell Minute Meditation. (For the latter, after affirming May Wisdom Prevail in the United States of America I affirm three times: May Wisdom Prevail in the World. There’s no reason why those living in another country can’t do this meditation and substitute your own country's name. While the Liberty Bell is a US symbol, it’s also a universal one. The desire for Liberty is a value most people on Earth share. It’s a great rallying concept.)5. Note any changes that happen as a result of these practices. (I’d love you to share them in the Comments.)
Feeding Fear, the Mortal Sin
Apologies to those who were also raised Catholic, but the metaphor is too spot-on to overlook. I first saw Please Don’t Feed the Fears on Facebook as a sign, a play on “Please don’t feed the bears.” If you feed the fears, they’ll feed on you. You’ll find yourself an entrée to all your demons. You’ll fill the field with fear and more fear. Fear energy and thoughts are highly contagious. You not only hurt yourself; you hurt everyone else.
For those worried about the results of the US election, Brexit and any number of terrorist and scary events happening worldwide; this is for your consideration. The way the world works, things manifest from the inside out. The more people who focus on the world as they want it to be, the more their vision will become “matter” in the real world. I’m not talking about rose-colored glasses but rather a refusal to buy into doom and gloom, no matter how things look on the outside. If we buy into “what we see is what we get,” that’s what we’ll get. There’s no change possible.
What we see on Earth now is part of a process—one we can contribute to by how we think, feel and act. Certainly, act on what you do not accept. Write letters, protest, elect officials who support what you believe is life-affirming. But the most important thing we can do is an inner job to hold ourselves to spreading love, not fear. I know that isn’t easy, to assess what is an imminent threat opposed to identifying and letting go of worst-case maybes. (We have an inner alarm system for a reason.) The other important mental picture to hold: Any current chaos is the precursor to knowing what on Earth is going on. Confusion precedes new creation and clarity.
Time Well Spent
At the beginning of this month where the planets all are direct, consider working from the inside out to accomplish whatever you want for yourself and others. After that, you might want to keep going—stoking positive visions and letting go of fear.
Together, we might just change the world.
