Are you experiencing Mercury retrograde madness and mayhem? This is the first retrograde of 2011 which started March 31 and ends on April 23rd although it officially exits its shadow period on May 11. This one seems to be creating more than the usual problems with communication and travel, computers crashing, misplaced items, forgetfulness, etc., probably because it's happening in Aries, the sign of action. While we want to push forward, retrogrades make us slow down, and all of the re- words come into play, re-think, re-consider, re-view, re-member, re-do
Everyone seems to be getting lessons in dealing with people who seem to not only disregard their needs but who do the exact opposite. What do you do with someone who appears to deliberately oppose your wishes, stand in your way and block your efforts? Their behavior is not OK and they force you into a corner. Do you come out fighting or walk away? And how do you decide what is not OK and what to do after that?
Dear Jennifer: I just realized that I have taken on my family’s karma and emotions, which explains why everything in my life is a mess right now and I’m feeling stuck, depressed and have no energy. This realization hit me as I was talking to my sister, again, about her life issues and I suddenly became angry, told her I couldn’t fix her problems and hung up on her.
The desires of your heart are interwoven with the lessons and soul wounds that are your human experience. Your desire for more fulfillment, love and abundance are born from your knowledge of limitation that arises from being disconnected from your source.
Do you know that the universe works with you and not for you? It is not possible for the Universe to give you something that you do not want or to create situations that you have not already set an intention for in some part of your reality. The Universal energy does not create something out of nothing.
Most of our lifetime experience is focused on undoing karma. In fact, the only reason we are here today is to resolve karma and help the earth with the release of karma from the third dimension so we can all ascend into higher dimensions of being. This lifetime is so challenging for many of us because we have taken on many different levels and kinds of karma in one lifetime, where we usually focused on one, so that we could fast track the ascension process.
Dear Jennifer: A year ago I was a happily married woman with a wonderful husband and two beautiful children. Then I found out that my husband was having an affair and he decided to leave our family. Aside from being heartbroken by his decision, we are now involved in a very difficult divorce that is draining our savings, and we’re fighting over everything, including our children.
The present moment is more than the moment in which you are aware of yourself in your reality, it is also the total of all moments before it and the beginning of the next moment. In each moment you bring in the energies of all lifetimes, the knowing of all experiences and the highest energetic vibration that you can be at in that moment.
Everyone in your life is a teacher and each teacher has a corresponding lesson that they have agreed to assist you with. There are no random or accidental pairings, meetings or connections in any aspect of your life. You are provided with lessons and their corresponding teachers, which are opportunities to learn, shift energy and heal energetic aspects that are experienced as emotions.
Love follows a cycle, as does everything else on earth and in the Universe. But because we think of love as an emotion and forget that it is an energy, we don’t consider it as being part of the cycle of creation and destruction that everything in the Universe experiences. Our role, as co-creators of and with the earth, its ascension partner, and masters of the third dimension, is to create and expand love, allow old or ineffective love patterns to die so new ones can take their place.
