Message from Higher Self 22 Aug 2014 by Multidimenisonal Ocean

Thank you Laura! I’m experiencing this right now too. Recognizing where I have not been giving to myself as I would to someone I love. It is often amazing to realize how poorly we have treated ourselves! But very worth going through the sometimes unpleasant emotional ride to create a better reality for ourselves.

Multidimensional Ocean

hqdefaultThis is a time for many of you where you come to realize what is lacking in your life, but most importantly into your own soul.

The reason for that is not to for self blame or feeling sorry for yourselves at all. As you know just seeing what is needed for you is the 1st step towards fulfilling your own needs.

Why Washington’s War on Terror Failed: The Underrated Saudi Connection

The Oracle Report | Friday, August 22, 2014



Friday, August 22, 2014

Balsamic Moon Phase: release

Moon in Cancer/Leo

Ruling Mahavidya: Bhairavi (The Fierce One)

Skill: skim lightly

Negative Imprint: anger, control, trauma/pain from the past is triggered, fear

Positive Imprint: reflection, freedom from restriction, carefree, lighthearted

My grandmother was a poet. One day I hope to publish her work. One of my favorites is titled “Advice from Mother Superior.” The first line has always comforted me when the ways of the world become a little much:

Skim lightly o’er the fires of life

The fires of life roar today as the Moon returns to the flames of Leo for the second time this lunar month. We have a second round of intense shadow energy with the Moon’s return to Leo, joining the Black Moon once again. Today and tomorrow are Black Moon days with shadow sides – fears – running amok.

When we skim lightly, we do not engage the chaos, the anger, and the upset that rages.

The Moon will not enter Leo until 4:50 pm ET/8:50 pm UT, but the energy will build toward it all day. Mars draws ever closer to its conjunction with Saturn on Monday, pressing anger, conflict and control issues into the collective. We are aware of this and, understanding the nature of our own shadow sides, will not react from fear. We will skim lightly.

This is the only thing we need to remember today.

This morning Andrew and I will record my overview of not only the upcoming lunar month (that begins on Monday) but also the following month. I will post the audio later today.

Calling all wise owls…

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!
