“I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.
‘We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,’
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”

Spirit Library: Trust the Process
December brings to a close one of the most energetically intense and unpredictable years I think we have ever experienced. However, before the year is up, we can expect our awakening, healing and growth to rapidly accelerate with not only the Solar Eclipse this weekend, but also the 12:12 gateway, the Solstice and Christmas. As a result, we will have many opportunities this month to realign and refine our awareness with our soul’s consciousness

Inner Journey: WHAT IS SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS?
“You are a holistic being with both nondualistic energy and the energy of the physical plane as a part of your being at your disposal.”
— Wayne Dyer
Andrew Schneider helps us understand our human experience of being soul. He says, “Soul consciousness arises when we stand facing in opposite directions at the same time – toward eternity and toward time, toward infinity and toward space, toward unity and toward complexity. We stand in that dualism without being dualistic, for in consciousness we can accommodate the opposites. We do this by identifying with both. This identification results in the experience of being an individual while at the same time being the whole, and finding no contradiction in this experience.”
“Give your difference, welcome my difference, unify all difference in the larger whole — such is the law of growth. The unifying of difference is the eternal process of life — the creative synthesis, the highest act of creation.”
— M. P. Follett
A Note from the Universe
Would it make any difference if you knew that we understand, deeply, the battles you’ve waged? To know that we’ve approved of the choices you’ve made? That you have your own fan club here? That on the weekends we watch movie clips of your life? That every single morning we celebrate your birthday? That what you’ve learned, you’ve taught us all?
Would it make any difference if you knew that sometimes when no one’s watching, we each, in our own way, pretend to be you?
Well, whether or not it makes a difference… YOU have.

“When one paints an ideal, one does not need to limit one’s imagination.”
In the film world, we see that anything is possible. Why? Because there are writers and actors and directors working together to create a reality for the big screen. Many of these production companies have names that emphasize that it is an illusion that we are watching, like “Dreamworks” or “Imagine Films.” In the “real” world, anything is possible, but we don’t always believe it. We limit ourselves to what we have already experienced, or what we can see, or feel. But the truth is that we are creating our reality everyday, just the same way that filmmakers are making movies. We’re writing our script, and acting it out. If we want to change something, we can change it. We have that power.

Daily Tarot: The Tower
Your emotions and instincts are working overtime today and this can distract you from doing the simplest of things. Whatever difficulties you encounter today – and they should be small ones – you will create more problems for yourself by being too psychically overactive. If someone is preoccupied with you and wishing you to have a rough day, you’ll know it but maybe not know who it is.
