Mercury Retrograde: Another Chance to Go Within

Image

 

Historically, Mercury Retrograde has been a time when people runaway from technology, communication and travel for many reasons. Lol but why?

What is Mercury Retrograde?:

This happens three to four times per year, when the planet Mercury slows down, and appears to stop (station) and move backward (retrograde). It’s an optical illusion, since there is forward movement, like speeding by a slow-moving train — as it recedes, it appears to go backward.

I saw this on a road trip, driving alongside a moving train going slower than my little white Subaru — it really does play tricks with your mind!

What are the Mercury Retrograde dates for 2012?:

March 12th to April 4th in Aries
July 14 to August 7 in Leo
November 6 to November 26 in Sagittarius, then Scorpio
What happens?:

Mercury is the messenger, and in this time, legend has it that mail vanishes en route. Some people find that their computers go on the fritz or phone lines go down. If you’re at all jittery about it, go ahead and back up your important files. That’s always a good idea anyway, right?
A Time-Out:

Mercury retrograde gives us time to catch up with ourselves, and reflect. Something from the past returns in a different form. People, ideas or buried insights that are keys to moving forward, float to the surface. Often it’s felt as a slowed down, contemplative time, and depending on the sign, a chance to go over old ground again, to claim what you missed the first time.
Err on Side of Caution:

There’s a long-held belief that it’s best to avoid making set plans during the Mercury Retrograde. This means holding off on signing contracts, and forming partnerships and alliances. What gets put in writing at this time may turn out to need serious revising after Mercury goes direct. But since tying up loose ends is the domain of retrograde, this type of finalization might fly.
Can you repeat that?:

In our relationships, sometimes we gloss over things that pushed buttons at the time, but which we let slide. What seemed not worth the trouble may reveal itself as a major issue in need of our attention. The Mercury retrograde is a time for review, when the underlying patterns come to light.
Back to the Drawing Board:

Some dreams and goals get lost in the hectic rushing around of daily life. The Mercury Retrograde period can be a rich time of reflection on those longings. This makes it a time for the soul to ponder its destiny. You might look over old journals, review your creative work, muse on serendipities of the past that have pointed you toward your spirit’s calling. It can make the retrograde period a time of solidifying a sense of your personal story and where you’re headed.
What does it mean in each different sign?:

The Mercury retrograde is shaped by the sign through which it is cast. For example, a Mercury retrograde in Cancer turns the mind toward things like family, home and the invisible emotional bonds that connect us. On the other hand, a Mercury retrograde in Aquarius gives it a different spin, with a review of group dynamics, the larger human community, all from a detached perspective.
Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde:

Astrology is a tool that can make you aware of patterns, like those that come during a Mercury retrograde. Just observe and see what happens, and be open to the past returning for review. If it’s coming back, there’s likely something more to learn or release from it. You don’t have to retreat to the zen monastery, but a little solitude and quiet reflection never hurt anybody.

Its chemical name is zirconium silicate. The crystal structure of zircon istetragonal crystal system. Zircon’s chemical formula is ZrSiO4. It’s name comes from the Persian word ‘zargun’, which means ‘gold-coloured’. The English word “Zircon” is derived from “Zirkon,” which is the German adaptation of these words. Zircon is known to assist with inducing sleep, It bestows social prestige and protection from enemies.

How Important Is Sleep?

 

What is sleep?

Some people apparently do not know what it is! They never get any sleep. Some choose to burn the day and night oil, mostly because they are unaware of the effects of sleep deprivation. After taking a look at this list of health risks that come as a result of not getting enough rest, someone may make a change and once and for all and choose to get some sleep for a change.

Sleep timing is controlled by thecircadian clock, sleep-wakehomeostasis, and in humans, within certain bounds, willed behavior. The circadian clock—an inner timekeeping, temperature-fluctuating, enzyme-controlling device—works in tandem withadenosine, a neurotransmitter that inhibits many of the bodily processes associated with wakefulness. Adenosine is created over the course of the day; high levels of adenosine lead to sleepiness. In diurnal animals, sleepiness occurs as the circadian element causes the release of the hormone melatonin and a gradual decrease in core body temperature. The timing is affected by one’s chronotype. It is the circadian rhythm that determines the ideal timing of a correctly structured and restorative sleep episode.

– Hallucination

Irritability

Cognitive impairment

– Memory lapses or loss

– Severe yawning

– Symptoms similar to ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

Impaired moral judgement

– Decreased reaction time and accuracy

– Tremors

Aching muscles

– Risk of Diabetes Type 2

Growth suppression

– Risk of obesity

– Decreased temperature

Increased heart rate variability

– Risk of heart disease

– Impaired immune system

Sleep is a natural recurring state characterized by reduced or absent waking consciousness, relatively suspended sensory activity, and inactivity of nearly all voluntary muscles. It is distinguished from quietwakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, and is more easily reversible than being in hibernation or a coma. Sleep is a heightened anabolic state, accentuating the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems.

Sleeping is the absolute thing that everything else depends on in our lives to carry out the rest of the day. Studies show that most people only get an average of 4-5  hours of sleep.. 7- 8 is healthy, there is work to do in this area.

It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.
Aristotle

What If You Were Psychically Open Since Birth?…

 

 What Does It Mean To Be Psychically Open?

 

I am in my office writing an article. Just as i’m about to finish the last part…The phone rings. I notice the name on the caller id, stop writing to answer the phone. In my head i am thinking about the vibration i feel from the person. I do a  quick reading while holding the phone on my shoulder to see how i should handle this situation with my client. This client has been out of touch. They seemed to have come back to life when i was working with them in the past but after 9 months they went back to where they were. This person did not stop doing all the harmful things right after i started working with them. However they made some huge changes. They had many awakenings, in the daytime and at night during their dreams. i will explain what awakenings are shortly.

 

 

On the other end on the line is a dear client who tells me they have been too depressed to leave their home. They do not sound depressed as they explain their multiple  experiences they have had during their unending depression. I listen silently. Intently. My intuition picked up on their challenges instantly. As i listened i heard about 7 key things that told me what i needed to know to assist my client with their situation.

1. They say they’ve been hearing voices.

2. Have not eaten the way they should be eating.

3. They have been having so many vivid dreams.

4. Sometimes they have thoughts about wanting to die

5. They pop pills to hide from reality

6. They speak about other people in the home being a problem.

7. They stopped bathing regularly

 

 

After the last part there was not much silence. I spoke immediately. What have you been focusing on during this time of depression i asked? They said nothing but making money. I knew that was not true. Psychics can see beyond mere worlds people say, if we choose to. I asked the question again with a couple other questions. At first they did not give the answer that i was looking for. Then after a few minutes they came with the truth. They said they were going through a rough time. As i sat on the other end other end of the line there was no doubt about that. Their aura felt heavy, dark and cold. I knew there was warmth in their heart though. That i could feel it. I smiled before i spoke again.

 

From the start of the phone call…They were intent on telling me a story that came to them in their dream state. I listened. The dream showed exactly what needed to happen to erupt this person from their challenge. This was not a scheduled session so i cut straight to the chase. I knew this client for years. Pass lifetimes even. We have a great connection. I knew what they were about to say. I stopped them.

 

I started off…”Listen, you have energy problems. Let me tell you what is going to bring you success here: 1st of all, if you know you have a problem with being joyful, happy motivated. What should you do?” I asked if they had a plan to stop the constant cycles of depression in their life. They said no, they did not. If you want to stop this you need a plan! A regime would do wonders for you. You have to take charge of your life. Now i understand what the ‘people’ have told you but YOU have the power. You are choosing this life. Are you not? When i asked that question they admitted to not really trying. (We had been here before)

 

I spoke again, you need positive things honey. You have to surround yourself with life. If not you will not remember your goal to stop choosing to be down in the dumps. They started speaking about someone else who is tired of them looking a mess. I stopped them- “Look honey you have a choice, do you not?”  You can be around whomever you desire to. This is up to you. Not them.

 

I know you have thoughts coming to you all day. your nervous system is very sensitive. You have to stay on point with things that make you feel good. Your thoughts are coming from a sick body, they will sabotage your efforts. We all have to IGNORE thoughts that do not suit us. That is your challenge. We know you are open psychically, now what are you going to do about it. You have a gift. But you have to nurture it or it can turn into a nightmare for you. I change you to sit down and write a list of how your day is GOING to look. you hold the key! Then i want you to listen to things that keep you on point all day with sticking to your mission. Look all you need is 21 days! Then the new routine will become a habit.

 

What should you be listening to as someone who is psychically open? For one, listen to music, lectures all things that motivate and inspire you to do whatever you want to be or do. You should be listening to stuff like that daily. Meditation music, uplifting, inspiring. Motivational speakers that specialize in the field of study you want to get into or grow more confident in.

 

 

This story is a story i shared because there are other people in the world who share this experience. The issue with this is: People are being told THEY are not in control of their lives 100% of the time. As a healer i have a sense for motivating people to do their best. Obstacles are always in our lives but they question is: What are we going to do to clear them up. I AM SOLUTION ORIENTED 100% of the time. Back to the story.

 

There are people in the world who believe they have a problem, or that something is permenently wrong with them. There is viable information that most people need to know. If they knew the truth about their bodies and brains they would be able to do so much more in life.

 

The world we live in is far more than most know. As a whole we all do things together. There is one connection we each are a part of that oneness. For instance we all breathe together plus we share the same air too! This has been happening since forever. Also, when we yawn, other people yawn directly after us, or the other way around. Cats and dogs yawn too. It’s funny dogs and cats actually yawn before or after people do. Its a divine chain reaction. The World we live in is a strange world some would say.

 

The same way we share oxygen, we share thoughts as well. What my client is having is a major energy shift in her life. Everything she is going through is nessesary for her to evaluate her life and make a choice. She is at a crossroads. That’s all it is. How many times have we all been at one of those. I’ll answer that for you! It’s been Several times in our lives. We go through life learning lessons during our life to grow, evolve and transform.

 

Here are some key things that can HINDER us from having a balanced nervous system:

 

1. Using DRUGS of ALL OF ALL KINDS including alcohol & weed too.

2. Not getting 7- 8 hours of quality sleep per night.

3. Eating an greasy, fried, over salted & cooked, super sugar unhealthy diet.

4. Watching to much television

5. Unbalanced, unclean environment

6. No game plan

 

Women, men and children are born sometimes with very sensitive nervous systems. This happens all the time. What types of things happen when someone is open in this way? Well, they can be pursuaded to do something without words. they can be pulled to do something through thoughts and energy alone. No one ever taught them (Pranayama)  deep breathing, Meditation, Qi Gong, Tai Qi and yoga exercises to assist them in balancing out their life force energy so they can then live joyfully with mastery of their body. Once everyone is taught such things, the world will be a brand new place. Most people have a thought come to them, they assume its their thought. Often it is not, what kinds of things have people done as a result of not knowing that energy is a thoughts. Energy comes before words do. Always has.

 

 

This is why the Law of Attraction we say you have to ignore thoughts that do not serve to push you further. You must feel good and you must have a plan! A psychically open man woman or child can learn much from understanding how to work: The Law of Attraction in their life. You also need to find a metaphysician who is experienced with balancing the life force. I wrote this because my life was all about this. One day i learned to take hold of my life with doing certain inner and outer work. I have been outstanding ever since! Read more on my story here: About Me

 

Last comment: The details of this story have been changed so no ones personal story is shared with the world. Permission was given to share it though. But i have a strict rule of privacy with my clients.
