Kepler 444


Kepler 444 is an ancient solar system comprised of 5 planets which orbit their sun in 5 days. This system is dated at 11 billion years old, making it the oldest known system of terrestrial-size planets, comparative to earth, yet two and a half times older. It is 117 light years from us near the constellation Lyra.

TAROT Reading 16 February 2015

Knight of Swords, 10 of Swords, Page of Pentacles
Keywords: Movement, Honesty with Self, Communion

Onwards and upwards. The message for the start of this week is to keep it rolling and not lose focus or motivation. Especially from personal attacks, assailants and such. Step over the shit and keep walking. Hold on to what you know, and don’t let that be confused or obscured. I just get that energy of “push through it” and hold strong will and solar plexus energy at this time, to not doubt the strength of your own force.

“I’ve got a magic charm
That I keep up my sleeve
I can walk the ocean floor
And never have to breathe”
– Life Doesn’t Frighten Me, Maya Angelou

Weirdly there’s this “stabbed in the back” theme appearing in the air this week, which is a little eerie. Watch out for jealousies, malice and ill intent. That force of will which I spoke of, will be required to not be waylaid by these less than honorable intentions of others. But also assess whether this sense of personal attack is actual or your own hyper sensitivity perceiving it as a personal attack. Either way, to move through it is to assess your own position and sense of who you are, so you’re not thrown off your centre.

“If you know where you stand
Then you know where to land
And if you fall it won’t matter
Cuz you’ll know that you’re right”
– When The Pawn, Fiona Apple

This theme of knowing where you stand and working through the layers of it is needed to keep our momentum. That clarity provides us the confidence to move on. It’s also encouraging us to be strong when encountering what arises for us in self reflection. “Is this who I want to be? Is this what I wish to be?”

This is another layer of shadow work appearing mid week. What are we ready to put to rest? What are we ready to let die? Is it time for that aspect of ourself to consciously and determinedly fall away? Is there any life left living in it? Where in ourselves do we truly find life? What is the source of that life?

The end of the week then signals a return to innocence, purity, clear intention, wonder and grace. The lightness is granted once we’ve purged the mid week introspection. There’s a strength reborn in solidarity (which I define as unification within the self, as opposed to seeking that unification from others) and this in itself is also another defining theme of the week. Who are you when you are with others and who are you when you are by yourself? Is there a disparity when the core of who you are is not fully developed or relying on the confidence or identification of others? How can you learn to feel at ease with or without them?

“To see the world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour”
– Auguries of Innocence, William Blake

Lunar Essence in LEO

Lunar Essence in LEO / FEB 2015
Gridded with clear quartz and brazilian amethyst on the night of the full moon


Vibrational essence spring water, miscellaneous crystal chips, pine needle, rosemary, sandalwood and eucalyptus oil. Packaged in 100ml Amber glass bottle with atomizer.

Themes this essence works on:
Releasing the need to force the answer
Releasing the need to force understanding
Releasing the limitations of our understanding to open ourselves to new integration
Releasing the timing
Receiving information that can only come outside of our own thinking
When one cannot grasp the concept through the mind and the frame of our world that the intellect provides, this allows new information to be received, between thought.
When the mind will not allow us to comprehend what it cannot comprehend, this essence provides the pause. It does not force it’s way through, it simply allows new thought to be integrated when the mind begins to associate the information being passed through the essence
Going beyond the “head trip”

Being OK with not being “healed”

So much of the collective idea around healing is to shift out of or away from pain. You could liken this to pain being the “hurdles on a race track”. If I’ve just leapt over a hurdle and I’ve expended a degree of my energy to overcome it, I could be annoyed to find another hurdle ahead that I need to “gear up” towards and put the spring in my step to hurdle over it. And then I’d look ahead and find yet another hurdle on my path. If I allow this to frustrate me, then I’d be left asking the question, “when will I overcome all of these hurdles?” “When will there be no more hurdles to jump over?”


What if the idea wasn’t that we need to constantly exude all this energy racing to cross over these hurdles, and liken ourselves as athletes on a track, continually overcoming the pain of adversity that presents itself before us. What if the pain that we look upon as a “hurdle to overcome”, was actually the healer? If we took our focus off the emphasis of getting over the hurdle, just so we could run to the next hurdle, we’d get a sense that there is no rush, only the rush that we create for ourselves.

What if we allowed ourselves to sit with the pain a little bit longer? Before the idea of needing to transmute it/ shift it/ clear it/ integrate it/ right now/ all levels and dimensions/ past life present future/ divine feminine / masculine/ mother’s side/ father’s side/ lineage/ 10 generations back, etc, etc. What if we allowed ourselves to be ok in the knowledge that it wasn’t yet healed? Would it be ok that the pain was still here and still present in our lives? Would we be making ourselves “wrong” to still be experiencing it? Or processing it at a slower rate than we think we should be? Because for whatever reason we believed that pain or blockage was slowing us up from where we believe we should be right now? Or what we should have already achieved last week, last month, last year?


Are we dismissing our experience as we experience it? And does that become another way for us to not be fully present in our lives? Does life begin once we have overcome all the hurdles? Where is this reality of constant perfection, clear skies and no hurdles on the track?


Often the pain we are experiencing is a way of honoring and remembering our story. It’s the opportunity to fully reconnect with the things we suppressed, forgot or left out in the dark. If our pain is sourcing from those stories, why do we need to fast forward through them? Do we honor our lives by turning away from the memory of our struggle? If we remember our struggle, then can we then observe how far we’ve come? By the same token, how can the healing process begin if we are not allowing ourselves to fully re-member our story, and all those lost, misplaced and unprocessed sensations we felt while we were living those stories?


If the idea of healing or being healed means a state of grace, perfection, alignment with the “divine blueprint”, then surely we would have to be in a state of “allowing” ourselves to be in accordance with that grace. If the idea of not being healed yet is “not ok”, or if we are focused on the many issues we haven’t yet cleared on our list, and we are “not ok” with ourselves until we have cleared them, then does that make us “not ok” right now? And if our focus tells us that we are “not ok” right now, and healing is a state of grace and perfection, then how can we allow ourselves to be in alignment with it, if we are “not ok” right now? If we are “not ok”, then we are not healed. The two can’t exist at the same time in a dualistic dimension.


Healing is not a battle, not a competition, not something we can always measure tangibly when it comes to human emotion. It’s the accumulation of lifetimes of stories and reliving and reintegrating stories to get the fullness of our experience, individually tailored. It’s never just a formula to replicate and apply for everyone. And it’s not something we can “try” to do, because in that sense healing is an outcome of the process of easing ourselves back into our story, with love and honour for every painful recollection.
