Spiritual Awareness ~ Full Moon Runecasting And Bindrune 9 June 2017

Spiritual Awareness ~ Full Moon Runecasting And Bindrune 9 June 2017

Tonight is the Full Strawberry Moon and I decided to do a runecasting prior to tonight’s Esbat ritual for a bindrune invoking spiritual awareness. As a side note, I harvested my first strawberry of the season out in my medicinal garden, tiny, but sweet and yummy and I also crafted a new set of runes from some Black Locust I have growing next to one of my ponds. We brought the trees in from my husband’s parent’s home before it sold years ago and now the trees are producing blooms that are so beautiful! I hadn’t yet crafted any runes from them and their blooms reminded me of that fact. So my husband kindly cut some rune stock from a branch he had pruned last year and I spent a couple of days sanding and wood burning until the runes felt right in my hands.

Runes have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Although I do buy runes made from stone, I always make my wooden runes. There’s something about a witch’s interaction between the wood itself and the sanding and engraving process that makes every set a reflection of the witch’s inner vision. I create them in the order established by the Elder Futhark, visualizing each rune’s meaning.

For this Full Strawberry Moon runecasting, I drew Perthro, Mannaz, Eihwaz, Jera, and Fehu. Runes have many influences and the well of Wyrd, rational thought, paradox, transformation and balance, and wealth are the primary influences contained within the runecasting. I derive the overall numerology of a runecasting from their numerical placement in the Futhark, so individually they are 14, 20, 13, 12, and 1 respectively, with 6, or the sacred layer of Higher Self presence, as the runecasting’s overall numerological influence.

Perthro is the rune of fate, the unknown, and the cup from which runes are cast. A Water Element rune, its numerology of 5 reinforces the elemental influence of change. Also known as the childbirth rune, Perthro also represents birth if pointing to the right or death if pointing to the left. It reveals memories and can be visualized in meditation to experience past lives. Perthro represents the simplicity of cause and effect on the physical plane as well as the alignment of our nonphysical aspect of Self.

Intuition is balanced with our rational mind with Mannaz, the 20th rune of the Elder Futhark. An Earth rune, Mannaz represents humanity’s need for partnership and helps us understand our role in the greater community or society at large. It teaches us to live our lives in the present moment and to understand that we are part of a greater unified presence.

The 13th rune of the Elder Futhark, Eihwaz provides the connection between physical and nonphysical aspects of Self, the link between realms. It provides both structure and transformation, infusing Spirit into form and creates movement from one energetic state to another, eliminating stagnation that prevents clarity.

Another Earth rune, Jera is the rune of transformation and balance, fertility, and positive change. It’s useful to hang in the garden as part of a bindrune for growth as well as to bring harmony and alignment to relationships. Luck, prosperity, and the cycles of life are among Jera’s influences.

We end with Fehu, the sending rune representing wealth and traditionally, cattle. A Fire Element rune, Fehu begins the Elder Futhark and increases wealth and abundance as well as the witch’s ability to send energetic intentions. As the final rune of the runecasting, I believe it’s there to organize and send the collective energy of the runes above it.

Perthro opens us to experiencing the partnership of Mannaz while Eihwaz infuses that spiritual awareness into our daily lives. Jera further transforms our relationships into a conscious, unified presence with all. And Fehu provides the catalyst necessary to cast the intention of unified presence to the universe.

I created a bindrune along with a planetary sigil using the magick square for Jupiter and burned both onto a piece of juniper to invoke spiritual awareness of our unified presence. I like working with both types of sigils and have been using them together lately. The sigil from the magick square uses the letters associated with each rune to obtain their numerological equivalent and I drew the sigil from there.

 

 

I blessed and consecrated the sigil with the following chant. I used the Latin version:

  • I bind these runes     (Circum nos imbuit)
  • Blending energies within     (Melicos intra resonantia)
  • Bringing balance without    (Componere sine)
  • Infused with immanence     (Splendido immanentia vestiganda)
  • I bless and consecrate this sigil     (Benedico et consecrare hoc sigil)
  • In alignment with Goddess     (In noctis per Dea)
  • It is done     (Consummatum est)

Sigil magick is great to use when you want to create a symbol for a collective influence or intention. It can be as complicated or as simple as you like; it’s all a reflection of your own process. I wrote a book called Magick and the Aligned Witch in which I discuss working magick from an aligned state. Magick worked from an aligned state is less about consequences or trying to create the space for one thing or another to happen and more about creating the space for remembrance of who we are. We’re not here to judge others or expect them to live in accordance with our respective comfort levels. And casting our intentions when aligned in Source Presence allows us to see all as extensions of Self and the Creator and experience the truth of their perfection.

Now in the time of ascension, many are awakening to the truth of who they are and magick that creates the space for that process to happen in perfect love and perfect trust is the primary focus of this witch. Witches stand in observation of the world around them, secure in their knowing that all of it is an illusion of form. We can participate within that subjective, ego-based structure or reflect one that engages from an awareness of Higher Self. The choice is ours.

Our focus can no longer be on what separates us, but in fact, the awareness that we are one unified presence. We can no longer afford to be confused about this truth allowing hate and division to drive the conversation. We are so much more than we have been led to believe. We are the Creator, focused into the fabric of space/time, in collective creation of the universe.

My dear family, we are so much more than we thought, and it’s time to awaken to that truth.

Blessed Be

Alignment In Higher Consciousness ~ Runecasting for 9 April 2017

Alignment In Higher Consciousness ~ Runecasting for 9 April 2017

When we think about higher consciousness it may feel as if it’s unreachable, confusing the body we inhabit with the truth of who we actually are. In truth, each one of us is our higher consciousness and it’s to that reality that many are awakening to now. I like to use the shape of runes themselves when laying them out in a spread or pattern. Algiz, or the rune of higher consciousness, is one rune that I use frequently in alignment rituals. The last rune I drew from the bag was, in fact, Algiz itself reinforcing my choice of spreads. With everything that’s happening around the world, it seems that the Unified Presence has something to contribute to the conversation.

Magick can take various forms primarily dependent upon a witch’s focus or perspective. Some witches get involved in responding to this or that concern with anything from healing spells to love or prosperity magick. Some curse and some prefer instead to bind. Magick can further be delineated into magickal workings focusing on the shadow side of self or blessings of love and light. Some witches invoke angelic presence into their spellcraft, and some prefer to control demons.

Traditions influence as does the need to push beyond boundaries. The overall story of our lives influences as well which is where I make my own departure from the traditional narrative. I’ve always believed that the Creator/Source/God/Goddess is All That Is. As such, I don’t believe in a Creator that’s separate from the creation because the Creator is the creation. I believe that although our bodies are a creation over time by visitors to Earth, our higher consciousness remains one in unified presence with all as the Creator personified. Our bodies are only vessels that we inhabit for a time, our higher consciousness driving the bus so to speak.

We incarnate into form with an overall theme or purpose with others in agreement with their own participation. We’re interwoven together in the fabric of creation, separation from each other impossible. And because of this belief, my magick has changed considerably over the years. I’m more apt to allow things to unfold around me without becoming involved in any of it. It’s not that I won’t perform a binding spell if I really think someone or a situation is spinning out of control, but I’ve realized that at least some of my response is predicated on believing my perception of what I see.

If I stay away from judgment, then it’s easier to observe and then move on. It’s less reactionary that way. In Magick And The Aligned Witch, I discuss performing magick from an aligned state. The hazard of performing a binding spell is that I could be preventing the full expression of something that was chosen before incarnating. After all, experience can be our best teacher, so why would a witch interfere with another’s process?

Much of my magickal workings now focus on aligning in higher consciousness or unified presence. Now that ascension is in full swing, aligning and raising frequency allows everyone else to experience awakening’s resonance, our natural state. Runes are similar to the Major Arcana in tarot in that they represent archetypal influences reminding us of who we are. In essence, they keep us on track and are useful in aligning with higher consciousness.

Runes are similar to the Major Arcana in tarot in that they represent archetypal influences reminding us of who we are. In essence, they keep us on track and are useful in aligning with higher consciousness.

In today’s runecasting, I drew Gebo, Othala, Thurisaz, Isa, and Algiz and placed them in the Algiz pattern for higher consciousness. Gebo, a Water element rune, creates balanced energy exchange with others. Also known as the gift, Gebo promotes generosity and mutual benefit with all.

Othala is the rune of sacred space and our Akash. It’s said to combine all runic energies into one providing protection, peace, and prosperity. Othala balances order with chaos and its focus is on the greater community at large.

The catalytic energy of Thor’s Hammer is contained in Thurisaz. Protection and defense are this rune’s primary influence along with catalyzing change for the better. It can be used in weather and love magick, stimulating positive outcome. But along with protection, Thurisaz asks us to avoid impulsive and self-centered action, allowing anger to cool before responding further.

Isa brings stillness and alignment to the runecasting, allowing further development of the will. A rune of becoming, Isa represents Verdandi, the Norn of the static realm or present, securing our aligned focus until clarity is achieved.

In the final position, Algiz represents Air, Fire, and Water and the connection between the physical and nonphysical realms. Appearing at the bottom of the spread, it suggests that higher consciousness is our real foundation and our choices in life should reflect that truth.

The runes are arranged together in a sigil or bindrune bringing together the energetic influences of the runes contained within. They can be carried as a talisman for alignment throughout the day or used as a focus in ritual or magickal workings. The idea is to visualize the runic influences combining together into a greater resonance and then offer it to the unified presence by casting the intention for all to align if they choose. It’s like shouting out that there’s room over here at the table for anyone who wants to sit down.

Today’s runecasting is reminding us that instead of being in conflict with others, living in unity reflects who we are. When aligned in unified presence you realize that separation is an illusion. You’ll know that there is no other and that all are the Creator here to know more. The imperfections we see in others don’t exist outside of form, and when as witches we talk about living in perfect love and perfect trust, it really references our true reality as one with all. We feel the unified presence of creation. The bindrune is an expression of that truth.

Blessings to all!

The Awakening Self ~ Runecasting for 22 March 2017

The Awakening Self ~ Runecasting for 22 March 2017

Awakening and enlightenment are the themes from today’s runecasting. Dagaz, Gebo, and Kenaz are today’s runes and a closer look shows us that Dagaz contains both Gebo and Kenaz within its structure. Gebo provides the center and Kenaz opens to all sides. Balanced energy exchange along with the bright light of clarity form the energy of awakening and enlightenment expressed by Dagaz.

 

 

The twenty-third rune of the Elder Futhark, Dagaz signals the ending of one phase and the beginning of another. We stand in the middle of the rune, one phase transforming into new awareness and experience. Perfection and synchronicity are attained with Dagaz in full remembrance of our Unified Presence.

We bring ourselves into balance with Gebo, the seventh rune of the Futhark that appears in the center of Dagaz. Aligning in our Unified Presence, we create a link between all. Gebo is the rune of partnership and gifts, fostering generosity and mutual benefit.

Kenaz follows as the sixth rune of the Elder Futhark representing light and clarity. Appearing on all sides of Dagaz as well as Gebo, it’s rays awaken and transform the creative self, intensifies intuition, and as the rune of openings, Kenaz reveals what others would keep hidden, providing the clarity necessary for awakening and enlightenment.

When other runes are visibly present in a given rune so are their influences. The clarity found in Kenaz influences the enlightenment achieved by Dagaz. Living in balance or alignment with our Unified Presence provides the structure necessary for enlightenment. So it’s easy to see how one rune influences the interpretation of another.

In rune magick, specific runes are combined together in a pattern meaningful to the runecaster, blessed and consecrated, and then used in magickal workings or ritual for casting a particular influence or intention. Individually, the runes carry all the magickal influence necessary for any kind of work, but together they become something more and the reason for their continued use by witches who also cast runes.

But typically, when we cast the runes, we’re asking for what influences are in play. At least that’s why I do it. I’m looking for a higher focus, one that doesn’t derive its interpretation from perception so I more often than not refrain from asking specific questions. Divination, from my perspective, should be reserved for what the Unified Presence wishes to share and not a question and answer session.

A bindrune isn’t necessary in this case because Dagaz can serve that purpose. It can be drawn on anything as a focus for clarity and can be worn or carried as a talisman to encourage positive exchange with others. Enlightenment is achieved when we understand and fully embrace the nature and resonance of Dagaz.

The overall numerology of the runecasting is nine or completion reinforcing the influence of our runecasting. It’s time for a new approach, one based on an awakened and enlightened presence. It’s the result of the ascension we now experience as we choose love over hate, peace over conflict, and unity over division.

Our lives in third density are all about choice. Do we choose a focus on self over a commitment to loving exchange with others? Is a focus on self really the best choice to influence our awakening to awareness of our Unified Presence?

The choice we make determines everything.

Blessings to our one family, united in purpose, enlightenment is assured!

Power Over Respect ~ Tarot for 5 March 2017

Power Over Respect ~ Tarot for 5 March 2017

Power over respect seems to be the theme of the so-called new guy. We’ve always experienced that imbalance to some degree in our country, but what’s happening now is far more extreme than anything I’ve seen before. Not that I’ve seen everything, but what’s going on now seem so unnecessary, as if it’s a distraction from other more nefarious agendas at work. If he keeps us upset about one thing, then we might miss the really big stuff he’s pulling. It’s the bait and switch approach to governing. Or it’s the ignore the man behind the curtain approach. Either way, we can all agree that huge changes are quite possibly in store unless some truth is revealed that stops him in his tracks.

I confess that I rarely know what spread I’m going to use when I begin drawing cards. As I shuffled my Thoth deck I really didn’t have a question or focus so I decided to let the cards tell me what I needed to know. Right away I drew three cards from the Major Arcana, The Universe, The Emperor, and The Chariot. Their overall numerology is 32 reducing from there to 5 which can indicate change or an instinctual/material focus. Given their archetypal influence, powerful change is occurring.

From there I added two more cards, the Prince of Disks for hidden or underlying influences and the 2 of Cups as the final focus or outcome. Looking ahead, it’s nice to see that Love is the outcome. Adding the numerology of the 2 to the numerology of the Majors we arrive at an overall numerology of 7, or divinity and perfection. Seven is the number for magick and intuition and can also represent the shadow side of self.

Beginning with the final card in the Major Arcana, The Universe, we see the Triple Goddess in the center of a vortex assisting all in their return to the Unified Self. She has manifested the world around her drawing strength from the All Seeing Eye above. However, it’s not just the end of a cycle that this card signifies but also the beginning of something new. The head of the snake points downward as it emerges from the Eye’s golden rays, coiled in rebirth and regenesis providing support for the Goddess during the awakening and ascension process.

As the Goddess guides all toward ascension, she prepares as well for the new universe to come. Awakening and enlightenment give way to love and understanding transforming and raising the vibrational frequency of all.

The Emperor sits on his throne in all his fiery presence, two rams looking inquisitively over each shoulder. He holds a dark round globe in one hand and a ram’s head scepter in the other. Interestingly, he doesn’t look forward or to the right but to the left, suggesting a focus on past concerns.

One interpretation is that he’s gazing at his Empress but we don’t really know for sure. If so does that mean he finds his strength in another instead of within himself? His legs are crossed in the same manner as the Hanged Man suggesting a triple aspected focus which would align with The Empress as the third card of the Major Arcana. Perhaps his fiery nature is in need of balance that only the Empress can provide.

Although he is pragmatic and structured and capable of great compassion and reason, when ill-dignified The Emperor can be arrogant and out of control, his authority either protecting or oppressing others. The choice is his.

Movement, mastery, and receptivity are signified by The Chariot. The seventh card of the Major Arcana, this card asks us to know when to take control of the reins and when to surrender that control to others. It can also indicate alignment in Source Presence. The Knight is well-prepared for whatever is coming, dressed in gold armor, a round piece of amethyst his shield, four sphinx protecting him on his journey.

The Chariot represents balance and control over the material aspects of Self. When it presents in a reading we’re to push past obstacles irrespective of our feelings knowing that we have the inner resolve to succeed.

Prince of Disks
        Prince of Disks

In the unknown or hidden influence position sits the Prince of Disks on his own chariot pulled by a bull. He holds the world in his left hand, a staff in the other, ready for new adventures and experiences. Integrity and trustworthiness are the qualities of this card along with a sense of responsibility to others. He is practical and realistic and when this card appears, things really are moving along well.

Our answer, of course, is found in the 2 of Cups, or Love as it’s titled. A beautiful card depicting Venus in Cancer, the waters of emotional fulfillment flow forth from a lotus blossom upon two entwined pinkish dolphins with golden fins. From there while a small amount of water flows into the lower lotus blossom from the dolphin’s mouths, the majority continues on, filling the two golden chalices below to overflowing. Love is the way. Love is the answer.

I’ve written the beginning of the interpretation section several times because it was feeling somewhat redundant. But then I let myself off the hook a bit and realized that the world is in chaos and it makes sense that the cards would reflect that. The reading gives us a glimpse of who we are and what the answer is to the ridiculous place we now find ourselves.

In The Universe, we see the cycle of birth, return, and renewal. It’s an example of the awakened Unified Self. And it’s not something we have to wait until we die to experience because it’s our true reality. During this time of ascension, many are experiencing this elevated resonance of awakening to their divine Self, experiencing their essential oneness with all.

The catalytic colors alone of The Emperor card tell us that something big is happening particularly with The Emperor’s refusal to look directly at us or to the right in anticipation of the future. His refusal to look us in the eye denotes deception. The placement of the card reinforces this giving the impression that he’s looking at a process he cannot control, preferring distraction over responsibility. A sort of look over there and not at me approach.

The Chariot reminds us that working with others typically brings a better outcome than going it alone produces, something that seems to elude The Emperor. His life as a Prince was too privileged resulting in a lack of compassion and responsibility for others. His lack of integrity and honor prevent him from seeing the bigger picture which is detrimental to the country he pretends to govern, all while spending every weekend on the golf course.

It’s easy for the rich and powerful to forget that most people don’t share their experience. Ours is a different one. One that now is a risk because of an ill-dignified Emperor with no clothes. However, we will not find our solution when we’re at odds with each other. It must be found by coming together in a unified presence, making ourselves heard whether he wants to hear us or not.

We ALL matter that much.

At some point, we’re going to all have to agree that the so-called new guy lied to his supporters. They put their faith in a guy who spoke to their concerns in a manner that resonated. It is what it is. Now we have to move forward in love and unity and stand firm in demanding the truth. We deserve at least that much and in truth, so much more.

Enlightenment is a funny thing. Sometimes it happens when we’re given the gift of struggle by someone so awful that we finally learn that the only way forward is together. Whatever all of this was will come out in the end and we’ll know how this lunatic won the election. But until then, we must keep the pressure on so that the truth comes out sooner than later because Goddess knows we can’t afford the golf course trips. And would you please tell that ridiculous blonde lady to get her fucking feet off of the furniture? It’s the fucking Oval Office. Have some respect.

Blessings!

Our Spiritual Currency Shaping the Future – Runecasting for 5 Jan 2017

What is spiritual currency? Nauthiz, Tiwaz, and Fehu give us an idea of this notion in today’s runecasting. Fire and Air elements are influencing and the numerology is 1, 10, and 17 reducing to the number 1 or wholeness and new beginnings. It also happens to be the numerology of 2017.

Also considered the Norn rune Skuld representing the future, Nauthiz links destiny’s forces and assists us in achieving our goals. It’s useful to include in binding spells to transmute a negative situation into a positive one and as such is considered a rune for positive change.

Tiwaz, the only Air element rune in the runecasting, represents the god, Tyr, sacrifice, and justice. It reflects the spiritual warrior within and strengthens our self-discipline. We uphold and express higher ideals with this influence, our spiritual strength contained within its numerology of 8 (reduced from 17).

Fehu, the first rune of the Elder Futhark, brings into the runecasting the idea of currency or wealth. Although wealth can refer to the more tangible in our world such as what we acquire over our lifetime, it can also refer to our spiritual wealth or currency that we both align and engage with. As the sending rune, it gives the impetus for the runecasting particularly if contained within a bindrune.

Our world is potentially changing. How we experience this process matters and essentially amounts to the spiritual currency we will use to move through all of these changes. Much of it may end up being temporary, but without conscious awareness of and alignment with our Source Presence, we risk becoming caught up in all the drama that seems likely to ensue.

Fake news aside, it’s not easy to read the headlines these days without feeling such a sense of worry and loss. But is that the spiritual currency we want to extend to others? Are we sending spiritual awakening to the collective consciousness or something else? Better to stay on the positive path, raising our spiritual awareness, extending that spiritual currency to others, calling them forward to unity and love.

It may be the time of ascension, but it doesn’t mean that dark forces won’t try to derail our awakening.

We must not let them.

Take the Risk

Take the risk

 

It’s risky for a woman who begins to live her truth. Not everyone in your life understands the change in you; not everyone will get on board. Some will even sabotage your efforts, your voice, your inner power. No one seems to understand that you have no choice. You’ve waited long enough. You’ve lived your life for your parents, your husband, your children, your co-workers, your friends, the neighbors, even the checker at the grocery store. Your voice has been used for others. There’s always more to do, more to take care of, more to fix, and when all is said and done, there’s nothing left for you.

At some point, you realize what an exercise in futility it’s all been and something begins to stir inside. Suddenly, you’re not so concerned with what other people think. You forget to fall in line. You begin to question everything. You stir up the room and the air within. You don’t cooperate anymore. You begin to take back control.

Some call what many are experiencing these days as ascension. The frequency of Gaia is rising and we’re becoming more aware of our multi-dimensional selves. I view it as Goddess energy awakening within, taking her rightful place, returning us to the collective balance we lost. As a result of patriarchy, our inner balance was suppressed, with projective energy favored over receptive. Oppression has ruled the day ever since. The return of the Divine Feminine is upon us and that’s causing all sorts of consternation amongst those who don’t wish her return.

The myth of creation is just that..a myth. There’s nothing wrong with myths per se as they typically contain the social norms, mores, and values we emulate. But something went horribly awry with the advent of Adam. Patriarchy began as a struggle for supremacy between Adam and Lilith. As a result of Lilith standing in her own power, Eve was created, our integrity of self oppressed, and women have been in trouble ever since. The life we’ve lived since has been based on the convenient lie that women should be subservient to men. It was never so before this, yet when Adam was created, Goddess was demeaned and rejected, replaced by a vengeful God who needed our complete compliance lest we be left to the fires of Hell. Goddess became God and women had to obey. And we haven’t been safe since.

We are equal, not subservient. We give you life; we are not subservient. We guide and nurture; we are not subservient. We are the heartbeat of the family; we are not subservient. Our effect is profound; we are not subservient.

To those who wish to sabotage, just stop. You won’t win this. The Divine Mother has returned and She will bring everyone back into her loving family. The time has come for reunion. It is our blessing. It is our birthright. We need no one’s permission because it’s our only way forward. We can no longer let our self-imposed separation rule the day.

Our collective polarity is balancing. The Divine Feminine, long ago suppressed, has returned to influence that process. So live your truth. Stand up. Step out of your comfort zone. Do not remain silent anymore. None of us is alone for the Goddess is here, enfolding us in her loving embrace.

Our time has come and we are a force to be reckoned with.

A Little Numerology

merkaba family

 

 

I find numerology fascinating. I love when numbers show a synchronicity. I was playing around with our birthdays to see if anything stood out. Typically numbers are combined using addition to reduce them down to a single number. But when you’re trying to discover what challenges someone will face, subtraction is used. Since a family is a particularly interesting challenge, I decided to limit this to only the actual birth days of my husband, myself, and our two sons to see what came up. I’m sure any self-respecting numerologist is grabbing a sedative at this point, while I get creative, other wise known as making it up as I go along.

The resulting numbers reduced down to the following:
Dad      1                   Mom      4
Son 1   6                   Son 2      9

Sacred geometry is the expression of life itself. I wondered if all of this could be expressed as a Merkaba. So, I began thinking about how we focus in to creation, and how the triangle pointing downward would fit that. Physical form would then be represented by the triangle pointing upward. The focal point of creation, each one of us, would sit in the middle. Just think about it..all of that pure, loving Source Energy, focusing in to creative physical form. Since we’re all individual expressions of Source, it stands to reason that energies surrounding our exact day, time and location of birth would be of influence. Numerology helps us understand this process by establishing meanings for these values. Each number has its own vibration and influences our direction not only when we’re born, but as we continue in our lives.

I continued the process of subtraction to discover some additional numbers of relevance in our collective focus into creation. A family is about relationships. I began comparing our birth days and found an interesting synchronicity. When I subtracted Mom from Dad, 3 was the result. The same happened when I subtracted Son 2 from Son 1. Another 3.

Then I continued the process by subtracting both sons from Dad and both sons from Mom.

Dad ~ Son 1     5           Mom ~ Son 1      2
Dad ~ Son 2    8            Mom ~ Son 2      5

A pattern began to emerge. I began drawing the initial structure of the family using a square. It helps me to see the relationships visually. Although I was born on the 13th, and that has its own significance without any reduction, it does reduce to 4. Four also represents the four Elemental Energies involved in manifestation. From there I arranged the numbers.

Publication3

 

The X represents partnership and a sense of binding together. Arranging the family members in this way, in order of birth actually, I found that the number 1 became significant. The horizontal line represents the physical realm and the vertical line, the nonphysical realm.

 

 

 

Here’s what I came up with:

family merkaba 2
I used both triangles to represent the parents above, and their creation, their children, below. The blending of the two triangles, or tetrahedrons, create the star tetrahedron, or Merkaba, the shape of the quantum field surrounding each of us. The 8’s and 2’s balanced, and added to 10, as did the 5’s on the horizontal/physical realm axis. Ten reduces to one, making the vibrational resonance of the number 1 the focal point of the family, a blend of practicality (8) and balance (2) in the development of the family structure. In addition, another synchronicity lies in the first letter of our names. They all begin with J, which also resonates the number one.

Three seems significant in that it’s the distance between both Dad and Mom, as well as Sons 1 and 2. That’s when I noticed that it was also the distance between each person and each segment along the vertical/horizontal axis. So, three, a catalyst, influences not only the interaction between family members, but also the foundational nature created by the blending of nonphysical and physical realms. Creative energies infuse the family, as they support each other’s endeavors.

The outer ring expresses the energies involved during life in the physical realm. 3 blends into 6 on the vertical/nonphysical axis, culminating in 9. 11 is realized on the horizontal/physical axis from a blending of 5 and 6 energies.

Nine represents completion. It resonates with sensitivity and intuition. It’s extension is oneness. Eleven, is a master number. It can reduce to two, but in this case, 5 and 6 build to 11, the expression of illumination.

Looking at the horizontal axis first, representing the physical realm, five represents change and six, the sacred, culminating in 11 or illumination. We’re here to awaken. Interesting flow of energy there. Along the vertical axis, the nonphysical realm, three is again, the catalyst, infusing joy into the sacred energies of six, emerging into completeness..oneness. The nonphysical supports and balances the physical and creative energies abound.

As above, so below.

merkaba family

 

 

I’m not a numerologist. I’ve read a few books on the subject, but my understanding is limited at best, so I had no idea the numbers would work out this way when I began. I arranged things in an order that seemed right and inserted the numbers from there. I leave it to my other family members to decide for themselves how it resonates, but for me, it shows a family of focused, independent people, each bringing his/her own strengths to the equation. The catalytic energy of the family is intuitive and aware which resonates in this family of empaths. Catalytic energy can result in chaos, but it can also result in an intense collective focus. Either way, a balance, perhaps foundational in nature, between both is enhanced by energies from both the physical and nonphysical realms.

What I find most interesting is the 9 and 11, completion and illumination, particularly given the change in frequency we’re all experiencing. Ascension isn’t necessarily a completely loving experience. Just as with any kind of birth, it can be messy, lots of catalytic events occurring, revealing everything we don’t want in our lives anymore, propelling our focus into more positive directions. The momentum is there and it’s rising. Love and unity will replace hatred and division. Awakening is at hand. This may be an expression of one family, but as all are one, all minds are joined, and all benefit from the energy.
