At this time, I am ready to receive messages during the day.
I live my life for the day in awareness, listen to the messages from the Cosmos, and adjust or re-create my life in ways that take them into consideration.
My messages and experiences are recorded in a daily journal.
Steps 1-6 are preparation for these last three. The first six are completed in less than an hour at the beginning of the day. The last three continue throughout the day. Each day can be a struggle to balance the requirements of being a human being on the planet at this time with The Work. The requirements of being a human being include: : work for pay, care of children or parents, preparation of meals, maintenance of health and a seemingly unending list of other tasks. The Work is participation in the energy and spaces created by the cycles of alchemy in the dimensions of our physical, mental and spiritual lives. Realizing that The Work and life’s requirements are fundamentally the same and can be merged together is the way to create and maintain the balance. This requires awareness, acceptance, energy and persistence. It also requires letting go of the parts of our lives that no longer serve us to make room for the new that does.
I’ve grouped the nine steps this way to keep them in perspective for me:
Steps 1-3: Putting on my lab coat: becoming centered and entering my inner work space
Steps 4-6: Putting on my Cloak of Awareness: opening myself to messages from the Cosmos
Steps 7-9: Doing my Work
Beginning with the Winter Solstice of 2011, I’ve begun a daily journal that includes the messages received each day, the experiences that come from accepting them and the results of my attempts to incorporate them in my life during the next year leading up to the 2012 Winter Solstice. Excerpts from this journal will appear on the Page: December 21, 2012 – a year long effort to let go of my reluctance to be fully in a life that I co-create with the Cosmos.
