Upgrading Your Life From the Inside Out
Hello everybody and welcome to the Energy Forecast for November 2015.
We’re here today in the Arboretum at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, in the Japanese garden. If you're in the San Francisco area, or you get to visit, do come here and check this place out. It’s extraordinary and there are so many incredible and peaceful nature spots—I thought it would be the perfect place to film this month’s forecast.
As usual, we will begin by breathing for a moment. So just join me in taking a breath and releasing it … and taking another breath and releasing that.
It’s very like life, breathing. We take things in all the time and we release them. And just as the breath flows in and out, we’re constantly changing as we go through life.
The Themes For This Month: Connections and Upgrades
Two of the headlines for this month that came to me this morning while I was tuning in were: This is going to be both a month of connections and a month of upgrades.
To look at connections first, the energy conductivity in the world is getting stronger and stronger all of the time. So depending on where you are in your movement through awareness, and through integrated consciousness, you'll be having different fluctuations.
Some of you might be tired. Some of you might need to power down a little bit. Some of you still might be experiencing the edges of conflict with other people in your life. We’re all at different points on the journey, but one of the overarching themes for this month that is going to show up for most of us in our life is that of connections.
In the last 2-3 months, this has started to appear for many of you—you’re making really deep, profound connections with other like-minded, like-hearted, like-feeling souls. And these connections are hugely important. Not only because by connecting with each other we become an even stronger team, an even stronger web of people, but there is a consolidation effect. Many of you have been yearning for closer friendships, better working partnerships, deeper intimate relationships, and this is a time when that energy is in the air.
Clearing The Space for Connection
So don't be surprised if some of you are replaying old relationship heartbreaks in your dreams or in your daily thoughts. Disconnections with friends or with old lovers and partners are now rising to the surface for healing or clearing as we move into this era of greater connectivity.
Those of you who aren't processing in that way might be finding that you're beginning to meet to very like-minded people, very like-hearted people, and you'll have strong feelings when you meet these people. There will be something in your body that will recognize them. You might put it down to a past life. You might just put it down to a feeling of a similar energy with them. Whatever the case may be, these are very activating connections that you're walking into now.
Allowing The Path of Co-Creation To Reveal Itself
Some of the people that you’re meeting in this period of time, in this coming month, will be key players for you—and in some cases, for the rest of your life. But it’s most important to understand that when you recognise and have those connections with people, you don't need to know what the future relationship is going to be.
For example, you may have a very activating moment with someone where you think: “God, I just met this person, and I just love them! I have this amazing feeling about where we can go together…” Let that feeling about “where you can go” remain in feeling, and let go of the details. Because when you have these experiences—these connections with people—it takes time for the two of you to alchemically merge and to let the path of co-creation reveal itself between you … and you don't want to rush that.
If you find yourself rushing in your mind, if you find yourself saying, “I just met this woman, and I think that she could be the person who I create that healing center with, which I've always wanted to do…” just notice that thought. Don’t block the excitement or the vision. But do take the time to get to know each other first before moving quickly to action, because these ARE powerful connections that many of us are coming into alignment with now. And so, as you meet these people, in order to be ready to move into a future together, it's very important to heal the past relationships or friendships through your body, before the new actions start.
The Illumination of Your REAL heart
Some of you will find this a little overwhelming to your heart. Remember, we've talked a lot over the last few months about how strong the heart energy is becoming on Earth at this time. And so for people who are conscious and present most of the time, and who have been actively opening themselves, many heart-connected relationships will now be showing up in your life.
This is a big thing.
It's not just a great celebration. It's actually a very big thing in and for the body, as it takes strength and patience to let the effect of a real heart-connected relationship illuminate you from within.
It does tend to heal the past disconnections—the heartbreaks, betrayals, losses of trust. And that's a very invisible process that may sometimes come into your mind, but a lot of the time it's just taking place energetically.
These are some of the reasons that I frequently encourage all of you to take space in your life. And I encourage myself to do the same on a daily basis. I have to remember this too—that there is so much moving right now on Planet Earth, and there is so much consciousness hitting these bodies of ours that we do need these moments each day to step back and let it all breathe through and absorb into our body.
So with these powerful new connections, just allow them to BE in your life. Allow the magic of the feeling of those relationships to move through you and trust that whatever your visionary mind is telling you about where this relationship can go or what it could do—be it a friendship, a work relationship, a love relationship—just let that play out. Let it take its place inside you and rearrange you. Because the beauty of when we connect with other people in such a powerful way is that our minds no longer need to do as much of the work.
Our minds are often leading us into safety or into areas where we hope we’re going to get our needs met. And when we genuinely have heartfelt, powerful connections with other people, we work as a tribe and we work as a hive, and then we’re no longer this individual entity that is solo having to make our life work. We enter this tapestry of love, this tapestry of connection, this tapestry of togetherness which, in and of itself, carries us forward. So that is why it’s a big thing, and that's why it needs time.
Actively Welcoming Heartfelt Connections
If you're listening to this and feeling some grief around what I'm talking about, you may be feeling loneliness, a sense of isolation, or sadness that this isn’t your story right now. If so, just write the following statement on a piece of paper:
I welcome loving, supportive, heartfelt friends and connections into my life.
I welcome loving, supportive, heartfelt friends and connections into my life.
Once you’ve written that down on a piece of paper, stick it on a wall in your house. It will not only rearrange the room for you, every time you see it, you will have an activation around what you are now bringing into your life. It's a shockingly effective process, so do try that with anything you want to manifest.
Upgrades and Expansive New Choices
This brings me to the next theme for November, which is upgrades. In important ways, “upgrades” links to connections and to resolving issues and old feelings that you have had about certain people in your life.
The concept of upgrades is something that I first came across several years ago. It is the idea of when you say “no” to one opportunity or offer, you leave the space for a “yes” to a better opportunity or a better person’s offer.
Now you might say, “Well, hang on! We’re all equal, everyone's the same.” And that is true, but often what we’re trying to do is fit ourselves into opportunities or relationships that are either smaller than we are or that aren't really in alignment. And this can happen in many different ways. For example, if your parent was an alcoholic or abusive to you, somebody who was incapable of seeing and loving you as a child, it's quite likely that until you've dug into yourself and revealed to yourself what it was that you went through, you might keep choosing people who never fully see you, never fully love you, never fully support you—because that is what you were used to and what you’re trying to resolve. But when you learn to say no to the abusive relationship, you leave yourself open to the upgrade.
Allowing Your Feelings: The Quick Route To Positive Change
Some of the reasons we don't say no:
- We’re afraid of isolation.
- We’re afraid of disconnection.
- We feel guilty for letting someone down if they have offered us something and we have declined.
- We feel guilty about leaving someone.
The beauty of this is when you learn to say no and go through those feelings, you then leave yourself open to an upgraded opportunity to come into your world. There is so much power in learning to not being afraid of those feelings and just allowing. You can say to yourself, “Okay, as much as I wish I wasn't feeling lonely, today I'm going to accept that I'm just going feel lonely.” And the power of this is when you admit to yourself you feel lonely, and you allow the loneliness to be in your body for as long as it needs to be, it leaves you a lot quicker than when you are avoiding it, denying it, or trying to distract yourself from it.
So, it is very powerful to remember that even if there is a little part of you that regrets saying no or has doubts, you ARE opening the space for a greater opportunity to come to you in the future.
Feeling and Sensing: Following Your Personal GPS
With this month being a month of connections and upgrades, some of you will be practicing saying no more frequently—which will mean having to follow your instincts more closely. “I really don't want to go to that party this weekend, even though all my friends are going? A part of me yearns for a party, but my instinct is that I don't want to go to that party.” Follow that! Because you never know who you might meet elsewhere because you didn’t go to that party, or what epiphany you might have privately at home … because you have listened to yourself and taken that time. Trust yourself and your instincts.
This sensory way of being is what we’re all calibrating to now, and it takes time to fully land in it. But know and trust that the connections and upgrades you are inviting yourself into will be so supportive.
It’s one thing for us to conceptually understand the new way of being we want for ourselves, but it's another thing to actually have people in our lives who we can practise and share that with.
So, there are action steps that we need to take to support allowing those connections to come to us:
First, as discussed above, write down what it is you want to bring into your life around relationships. What qualities and experiences? And then look at where you have to prune and weed your relationship garden.
That’s not offensive to anybody in our relationship garden; it's not about making others bad or wrong in any way. It's about recognizing and admitting that you aren't experiencing your highest self or your highest possibility with a particular person. Therefore, if you leave yourself open to new possibilities with others, not only will you elevate within those new relationships, but your lit-up energy will infuse everyone around you in an even higher way.
Honoring the Many Minds of Relationships in Your Life
I will just clarify something here: There are all kinds of relationships for us in our life. You know, there are the people who you might never be able to have an emotional conversation with, but you love and adore them and want to be around them, and so you are around them some of the time. But then you balance that by making sure that the people you can have an emotional conversation with, which is important to you, are also present in your life.
So it's not necessarily about certain people being right or wrong, better or worse. It's about looking at the whole tapestry of relationships in your life and asking: “Where do I need some adjustments to my tapestry? Where do I need to make some improvements?”
For some of you, recognize that the connection and upgrade energies might first come through you being with YOU. You might be thinking, “Ugh, Lee. But I’m exhausted. I'm sick of people. I just want to be on my own.” So maybe the focus this month for you is about giving yourself the gift of you.
With that, maybe November for you is about NOT making plans and committing to that. Your best action step could be to say no to plans with others. “I’m just going to give myself the space to be at home by myself and see what happens.”
You will find yourself again. And that will be your connection and upgrade.
And through finding yourself again, your ability to magnetize the right people and the right opportunities grows once more. Because you're no longer corroded by relationships that are either no longer serving you or slowly chipping away at your energy on a daily basis.
This mastery thing—mastering our energies and emotions—is something that we all have to do completely by ourselves and in ourselves. We get amazing support, but ultimately, we have to learn how to listen to ourselves—and that's a slow process sometimes. But if we keep remembering the importance of this process, we seriously upgrade not only our own lives but others as well. Through our genuine open-heartedness, we can become more benevolent toward other people than we were ever capable of being before now.
At this time, on this planet, that benevolence is what we need.

As ever everybody, thank you for your love and support. Thank you to those of you who send in financial donations or donations of love and support through your words. It means the world.
Have a great month and lots of love.
