November 2023 Ascension Energies Update

November 2023’s theme: Opening to Readiness

November’s Keywords: Cosmic Wisdom, Spiritual Connection, Mystical Expansion

Hello Beautiful Soul!

Last month was intense as old trauma and wounds continued to surface, and events in the world collectively overwhelmed and triggered us. Transmuting all of this trauma took tremendous inner effort, leaving many exhausted, fatigued and ill. October's transmutation of trauma now gives way this month to the possibility of greater spiritual connection and mystical expansion.

Therefore, November continues our sense of introspection, spiritual growth, and personal transformation. This allows us to move into greater inner divinity, Oneness and wholeness. As this sense of connectivity comes online, we clear rigid mental patterns or blocks to allow us to flow with change of any kind, and permit our 7th chakra that contains our higher destiny, to align with Divine Will.

This creates an elegant dance between readiness, inner knowing, receptivity and action. The opening to readiness is the key. It means we drop the ego that has an agenda, is linked to wounding, or can block us from changing, and instead move with the natural flow of life. We find more balance by using our inner will to create our lives, and at the same time allow ourselves to be inspired by the Great Mystery of Creation. In doing so we embrace the 7th chakra archetypes of the Guru and the Priest/Priestess.  

The Guru archetype asks us to release what we think we need, and surrender to the moment in front of us. We can then transform any judgement such as insecurity, shame, unworthiness or fear on the spiritual path into focus, calmness and tranquillity. Through this transformation we can absorb sources of ancient knowledge, tap into guidance in the form of dreams and visions, and strengthen our channelling ability and interpretations of psychic thoughts without anxiety to make decisions. It renews our sense of higher purpose and trust that all is as it is meant to be. The grace of the Guru aligns our spirit with our inner truths so that we can live out our soul’s calling.

The Priest/Priestess supports us to let go of any judgements that seek personal gain; we are exactly where we are meant to be. As we do we make ourselves available to be a conduit for light and love with all around us. The Priest/Priestess archetype helps us release hard, rigid thoughts and feelings, and moves us towards altruistic, heart-based living.

In November we will need to continue to undo our belief systems so that we can accelerate change personally and collectively. Letting go and flowing in this way ultimately leads us to greater cosmic illumination and mystical expansion.

Cold and Flu Products to support your body during the Ascension Process

It’s that time of year again - the body is more prone to illness as the days grow darker, the Veil thins and the weather turns cooler in the northern hemisphere. And with continuous upgrades our bodies are going through tremendous cellular changes so many are going into winter feeling fatigued and run down. 

Covid is making its appearance, albeit with less severity and symptoms for most. Covid carries a vibrational frequency of fear and control, which we are being challenged to release within ourselves. 

This month's Ascension energy will continue to affect our adrenals, our digestion, and the endocrine and immune systems, so I have monthly specials on certain immune products to support you through this upgrade process!
