Take a moment and notice that there is beauty around you and within you. That is cause enough for celebration. All of the kingdoms of the earth, including humanity, are undergoing great change at this time. That too, is cause for celebration.
The general thought, both conscious and unconscious, traveling through the 'mind of man' at this time is that there is little cause for celebration. Perhaps you will forgive an argument on a day that carries my namesakes, but this is untrue!
The earth celebrates every day in every way and demonstrates this to you so that you will find cause to do the same. Do not allow yourselves to imagine that a changing earth is tantamount to a distress call. Change is the ongoing process of transformation and its acceleration is also cause for celebration even if it takes a form that is unfamiliar to you.
A pause between the inbreath and the outbreath will move your thoughts inward. As you do this notice how far you have come and how much you have grown, perhaps in a very short time. Notice that all of your experiences, both positive and negative, have encouraged you to know yourself and to experience life more fully. The same is true for the earth, and as Gaia sentience I am more aware now than ever before.
Do not struggle against change. Be an advocate for conscious evolution in all things, including thoughts. Unfamiliar moments bring new friends and family forward, another cause for celebration. Do not stir the waters to bring back what is going or gone when you make them (and yourself) still long enough to recognize the new that is already on the horizon.
Celebrate this day on Earth as I do, a day delivered unto itself to be lived in fullness, complete and whole in every way. And know that any day that you name and dedicate to yourself will be one in which Gaia is also in celebration.
Aligning with Your Environment Exercise
Gaia has been teaching me about shapeshifting environments, both inner and outer. The basic idea is that since everything in our world is made of 'earth-based' material, we can use that idea to remake the essence of that material into something that is more pleasing to us. In other words, along with mood and décor, we can restore the quality of our environment into something that uplifts the spirit and is also of benefit to the earth. Would you like to try?
Step 1: Allow yourself to become comfortable in your chosen environment as it is, without changing anything or thinking about what you would change. You can always do that later.
Step 2: Notice that everything in your environment, even if it is made of man-made materials, belongs to the earth and will one day return to the earth. Imagine it taking another form or having no form at all.
Step 3: Give the environment to Gaia and ask our earth sentience to hold it for a moment and to make its vibration equal to that of its ascendant pole (the pole beyond the duality scale).
Step 4: Actively choose to raise your vibrational fields in relationship to all of your environments, but focus your awareness on this one.
Step 5: Ask Gaia to calibrate your earth-based elemental body to the earth's ascendant pole and to your own. You may feel a gentle tug on your core as the duality of your hemispheres is pulled into one.
Step 6: While in this heightened state, make any adjustments you would like to your energetic core and to that of your environment. For instance, you might want to realign your purpose in relationship to this environment, shift how you relate to its density, etc. Be creative and trust what emerges from core.
Step 7: Release any formal ideas you may have about the purpose and use of physical environments, including your body. Remove any conditions or beliefs that would limit your ability to do this.
Step 8: With Gaia's assistance, build a bridge between your current state of awareness, your present environment, and all of the elements and kingdoms of the earth.
Step 9: Encourage your environment, as if it were an entity, to make itself into something that is new, uplifting, expansive, healing, and creative.
Step 10: Eventually your environment will begin to feel stable and solid again, and the experience will feel complete. Thank the physical and non-physical properties that assisted you. Well Done!
I use this exercise to increase the vitality of my body during channeling, to feel good about a large amount of work, and to keep the energy of the elements and kingdoms close to me. They have remade my environments many times and always for the better.
