Create Peace with info on December’s moon cycle
Tips for Creating Peace & Feeling Peaceful in Turmoil
The world is in accelerated turmoil this month, fueled by uncertainty and a fear-induced crisis of confidence. You may be asking yourself how you can create peace and feel peaceful when the world has gone mad. That indeed is an excellent question to be asking right now. Even in the asking, you can begin to tap your inner wisdom that has a larger view of things.
Divine Changemakers Demand Truth
Staying awake enough to ask questions and to demand truth is essential to your role as a divine changemaker. After all, you cannot be a positive force for change when you are in the dark about situations or when you blindly accept what you are told by authority figures. Check the facts for yourself. Question the underlying motives of people who are expressing opinions.
In moments when it simply feels too intense knowing about the world’s disarray, take a personal time out when needed. Self-care is essential when you feel stressed.
December Moon Cycle
Today is the first day of a moon cycle culminating in a rare Full Moon on Christmas. Each time we have a New Moon as we have today, it’s like a door opens into a new space within which you can create something new or add an expanded element into a current situation.
Using this cycle: consider what you can personally create with this New Moon; consider, too, what you can do on an everyday basis to express love, tolerance, and acceptance. Right now on the world stage we are seeing loud examples of the polar opposite of those qualities.
Remember: many things are not as they appear during humanity’s awakening process. Often those speaking loudest or with the most charisma are tuning into fears lots of people have on an unconscious level. Apply discernment and your intuitively guided reason to all you take in during these moments.
2016 Themes: Truth & Justice
This Sagittarius New Moon is likely to stir themes of purpose, meaning, justice, and truth. The last two on the list will be dominant themes for 2016 as I wrote about in my annual “2016 Predictions.” This month indeed is an energetic set up for what we will be focusing on next year. We have major opportunities in 2016 to shift how we live together and to take constructive actions to create a more loving world. What we will be seeing as the year progresses is that key issues long percolating within humanity will be front and center in an inescapable way.
Things are not hopeless and we are not helpless either. We as divine changemakers can stay awake and conscious through these crazy times. When our world is polarized and others are unconsciously playing out their fears, we can make our best efforts to be awake and loving – being the voices in the crowd with the courage to take the high road of spirit. This is a choice we can and must make to have the kind of world we want.
Creating Peace in our Upside Down World
Creating peace in this upside down world is not easy. Here is a simple guideline that when followed does make a difference. Stop focusing on enemies constructed within your own mind or within the minds of others. From a spiritual perspective you have no enemies and no one to fight. The very notion of the enemy keeps you at war with an invisible force. Choose peace.
Accept the fact that many people are consciously asleep right now. They want love and peace just like you do, however. Keep that in mind as you witness bickering, prejudice, hateful accusations, name calling, and threats to exclude groups of people.
Be a force of peace by focusing on goodness and intentionally seeing the connection between all beings and all things. Do not let fear cause you to label others or to sort things into good and bad. Apply love wherever you see polarity, division, and discrimination.
300 Years from Now
Looking back on these times 300 years from now, you will be grateful for the opportunity you had to be here now – witnessing and being an instrumental part of humanity’s return to love. When you doubt this, go to your heart and ask spirit for a higher view. Ask to feel the love that you are at your core.
