“When you get to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.” ― Edward Teller
“Run my dear,from anything that may not strengthen your precious budding wings.” ― Hāfez
“Fly without wings; Dream with open eyes; See in darkness.” ― Dejan Stojanovic
An American Bald eagle has a wingspan of 1.8 to 2.3 m (5.9 to 7.5 ft) on the size of a body that is 70-170 cm (28 to 40 inches) and weighs between 3 and 6.3 kg (6.6 and 13.9 lbs), Despite its sheer size it still takes flight, seemingly effortlessly. Despite the perception that a bird that big would have trouble taking off and landing, it does it without thought and is often seen doing a graceful dance in the sky. One of the lessons that eagle teaches us is that we should not be allowing the illusion of limitation to ground us in our flight; that even though our outer challenges, inner burdens and wounding can seem daunting, that which seems impossible can be made possible! Just because something does not seem doable, does not mean it is. In fact, the American eagle has been known to soar higher than any other bird species.
In May we are going to be required to fight hard, very hard, to see through illusion, and let go of mental patterns that plague our ability to create something different. Leaps of faith and courage will be required to see our way through the second Mercury Retrograde of the year. The world needs our creativity, our talents, our inspiration, our invention and the soul force within that forges it all together. We have risen from the ashes and we are beginning to grow our new wings. However this month will feel like we are using energy to grow wings, while falling in mid air. It will not feel at all comfortable and there is the fear that we will not learn to fly before we hit the ground.
Releasing our fear, by facing shadow that comes up during this month, will be the best way to reclaim our inner passion, self love and sense of purpose. Through this we will learn to melt the ceiling that we think is above us, and expand to see multiple options and viewpoints. From there we will start to tailor our intelligence and talents in a form that best suits our needs. We all have inner abilities, and it’s time to use these abilities in a laser-like fashion to bring about focused co-creative change in our lives and to the world. We are learning resilience, changing our outlook, learning gratitude, learning to love differently, accepting our fragility and finding new ways to care for each other and ourselves.
Physical and Psycho spiritual symptoms and predictions for May 2016: You are now at the end stage of the growing phase of the 4th dimensional ascension process; there is no time left and the cosmic squeeze is on! To reach a more illuminative, balanced and peaceful inner self by the June Solstice (the dawning of 5th dimensional consciousness), will require great courage and deep inner processing work. You have a choice to do this inner work, or not – just because the Universe is lining up higher consciousness does not mean you automatically earn it. You can feel it in your bones; there is great change upon you. SOAR HIGH, OWN YOUR POWER OR LOSE IT. Take your time to think through the many issues you will be facing instead of reacting, listen for your inner knowing so that you can hear the truth in each situation. Stick out your belly button and hold your third chakra power center with balanced calm.
Archetypally we will be concentrating the most on our MUSE -that which brings us impassioned purpose. soulful co-creation, spiritual inspiration and ignited imagination. During this time of deeper inner reflection, increased self love and detached analysis we will learn to release our negative Hedonist archetype – and come into more Divine Service. Everything in the Universe is now increasingly lining up so that we will be using and/or developing our unique talents to serve humanity, the earth and the cosmos. So there will be more twists and turns, the unexpected and divine intervention to support our best selves to come forward. Best to surrender and enjoy the ride! It’s up to you to work your magic.
Ascension symptoms to watch for this month: Expect ascension symptoms to continue which are sinus issues, headaches, stiff neck, digestive issues off and on, disturbed sleep, hot flushes, itchy skin, rashes, abnormal menstrual cycle, sore kidneys, deep fatigue, anxiety, uncertainty, fear, bouts of grieving, confusion. We are letting go at an extreme rate. Lots of heartache and palpitation this month; the cellular structure of heart and the rhythmic flow of blood circulation will be affected.
