MAY 2023 Ascension Energies Update

May 2023’s theme: Ascendance (Up We GO)

May’s Keywords: Divine Purpose, Spiritual Growth

Hello Beautiful Soul!

After the immense clearing and alignment of our second chakra in April, we move to a new Cosmic Cycle of Creation: Fire - this will shift us out of the slow, intense, deep, breakthrough rhythm of the last three months (Wood Cycle) into accelerated spiritual growth in May. All of our arduous inner work so far this year will start to pay off in May!

The focus this month is the earthly and spiritual alignment of our 7th (Crown) chakra, the “Seat of the Spirit”. It is here where we receive higher guidance (via the pineal gland) to uplift the human spirit and channel new ways of living in harmony, balance and reverence with ourselves and our world. It is also where our own energy or vibrational field intersects with the universal vibrational consciousness (Oneness, or All That Is). 

The pineal gland, located in the head, is an electromagnetic sensor that regulates various states in the body, from our moods, to our extra sensory perception. Its biochemical and electromagnetic interactions are directly tied to its role in our spiritual enlightenment. 

Authentic spirituality, via the seventh chakra energy and as we ascend to align with our 8-12th chakras, is about living with is true for us as individuals. Spirituality provides fluidity in our individual experiences: it is recognizing that what is true for me may not be true for you. It provides us with the freedom to experience life and create our own unique feelings, thoughts and interaction in relationship to the Divine and our higher purpose. These are the qualities of the 7th Chakra archetypes: The Guru and The Priest/Priestess 

When we live a spiritual life we are able to grow infinitely on all levels of our being.  We are open to life and the truths that we find in our immediate world, from our moment to moment encounters with others to how we connect with nature. Reality can change for us in an instant, and we can witness these changes through  accommodating eyes. Spirituality promotes a world where ALL are equal, and diversity and co-creative principles are truly embraced. 

May’s Ascension Energies are inviting us to move to another level of spiritual illumination that will inspire us to new personal heights and growth on our soulful journey!

What if there was an archetypal New Earth template or archetypal blueprint that supported you to understand and attune to what is coming, so you can more easily navigate to find your inner truth, your equilibrium, and also support yourself to blossom during this tumultuous time of living and being?

During 2021 through 2031 there will be a massive re-birthing of the Divine Feminine within our world. This is the loving, flowing energy of balance, creativity, intuition, abundance and heart-centered spirituality. This time will also see the dissolution of old systems and an awareness of our connectedness to All That Is.

We are preparing for the next Golden Age that will begin in 2032. However many are unprepared and will find these 10 years confusing and hopeless unless one is willing to actively engage with and master the principles and laws of Divine Creation.

This group will be learning how to partner with the energies of the Divine Feminine and Divine Creation which directs us and connects us to a co-creative existence and infinite possibilities. This includes attunement and alignment with the 12 Spiritual Laws and 12 Chakras, respecting and adhering to the 5 Cycles of Creation, and increasing activation of our 12 strands of human DNA.

The Golden Spiral Group officially starts March 31st, 2021!  HOWEVER, YOU CAN JOIN ANYTIME!
