Akashic Reading for the Aries Full Moon Oct. 5, 2017
Like the element of fire, anger has a motivating quality that can promise a bounty of transformation. Our duty to its promise is that we live by truth.⠀
When unconscious drives are at play there is an extra layer to transmuting our emotions into states of resolve. At times we would like to believe that we are ok, doing our thing our way, but true healing happens collectively. That means right now we are all being asked to process (Fear, Power, Rage) on a scale that requires tremendous care, patience and responsibility.
But how can one human heart carry such a wound? How can we stand present, purposeful and resilient in the face of terrible grief?
Being able to come back to a state of presence is of monumental value when we are triggered. When we see ourselves as agents of creation we become capable of directing our attention to facilitate change. We can offer kindness. We defend what is life affirming. We become the fierce one. When we feel overwhelmed we can still make a choice to hold onto what is ultimately true. Those we love, who inspire us, who walk with wisdom, grace and integrity. With time and experience, we become those people.
Life presents us with realities that break our spirit. Despair, grief, rage, the unsavory often provide a wake up call. In the yogic tradition anger (Rudra) is a gateway to liberation (Moksha) and peace (Shanti). Fire destroys and transforms. It burns up the illusion of ego. At times this process brings us to our knees so that we can see what is truly there for us. To practice this means to stay with and embody the teachings. Heart, Mind, Soul.
Compassion is an embodied practice revealing a staunch perspective into the nature of our human heart. It offers us space. It allows us to see beyond illusion. It grants us the wisdom when we listen.
