September 2023 Ascension Energies Update

September 2023’s theme: Choosing Self-Mastery

September’s Keywords: Emotional Courage, Pure Courage

Hello Beautiful Soul!

September brings winds of change and transmutation in our Year of Transformation, and deepens our sense of spirituality. Now dancing with our Higher Mind consciousness and rooted in the New Earth paradigm, we are grasping the knowledge that we create our reality, weaving our thoughts, words and actions into energetic calls to universal intelligence.

This month we continue our journey of reconnecting to Source: this can sometimes make us feel lost, unsure of who we are anymore and how to move forward. Are we really more than our earthly selves? It can feel like a deep cavern of existential crisis; a period of inner conflict where we are distraught over questions about identity, meaning, and soulful purpose.  

It can be an exhausting process to "do" our everyday life and humanness. So much so that we shut down, have compassion fatigue for ourselves (and others), and can then feel a great sense of separation, loneliness, despair and feel we are failing. 

However, this stage of the Ascension process gives us an opportunity to expand the sense of who we are. To realise how connected we are to the universal flow of Creation, and become aware that we are truly beings of Light that radiate love at our core. And that we want belonging and unity - which is a reflection of our true state of existence as one unified being in creation looking through and mirrored in everyone and everything around us.

Overall the only true home for us is inside, knowing that everything we have is inside of us, and that we ARE Spirit. 

Which leads me to ask you this question: are you willing to and do you have the courage to explore the depth of your spiritual heart, to open to love, to forgive, to understand that we are all One? 

Or do you take spiritual shortcuts, stay in the Victim Archetype, and depend on or blame others because you are done with how “hard” life has become. This is the dance you will be doing for the remainder of the year.

This month you have the opportunity to embrace your Lover and Magical Child archetypes, to embody emotional courage and pure courage to assist you on your journey. Courage is fortitude, and is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, exhaustion or intimidation. Courage is about taking risk, and is the dividing line between low vibrating self-serving behaviour, and empowerment in service of the higher good (see page 57 in my book). Heart felt courage will assist you to have more balance in your life, be internally strong and live as your authentic self.

It also allows you to accept that awakening comes not from anyone or anything outside of you, but through your own effort to awaken yourself. Courageous Self-Mastery is the key to the now and the future. When you do this, anything for you is possible!

13 Archetypes for ALL THAT IS

2023: The Empowered Rebel

The Empowered Rebel Archetype is the first archetype of the 13. 

We are being called to live this archetypal energy in 2023 at a time when old societal systems continue to stagnate/crumble, and out of the box thinkers are needed.

Great courage, innovative thinking and heart-led women and men are needed to change our world! Do you feel the call? Are you ready to live a different way?

The Empowered Rebel desires to seek heart-led change, to shake up and release outdated societal norms and values that do not serve the highest good, and to live courageously by his  or her own divinely guided beliefs and value system. 

The old version of the Rebel archetype was not empowered and felt powerless, so therefore reacted and rebelled as a result of fear based, ego needs, inciting self righteous fuelled rebellion against others or “the system”. This often resulted in power struggles, polarity and destructive, “circling the drain” outcomes.

The empowered version acts from a divinely led sense of galactic, intuitive guidance and wisdom that serves the most High, and encourages altruistic activism, creative revolution, and visionary insight out of a desire to serve those around him or her.
