Heaven is reached through stillness, not busy-ness and goings-on or doings. It is a state reached by removing the accumulations and uncovering the light buried deep inside and forgotten. We do not need to do anything but let go of all that is not true and authentic. In JSJ, opening SEL 25 is the closest we can get to a reminder of this state. Hold SEL 25 alone to hear its unique and comforting message. Or, hold it together with another SEL for an extra point of view. Hold SELs 25 and 11 to be still and quietly release everything
After the WordPress major update last week, the Traveler’s site doesn’t look right. I’m working on fixing it and am grateful for your patience. In the meantime, if you are looking for something specific but cannot find it, you can (a) wait a week until I fix this technical disaster or (b) email me and I will point you in the right direction.
It is summertime, or, at least, it is so for me! My physics classes at the college are at their end, and I am switching to summer mode with more non-physics activities – classes, book writing, creative projects, travel, and exciting adventures. Our Cycles Newsletter will also change back to a once-a-week schedule. After a busy and fruitful April, when I had events four weekends in a row, I am taking May for some winding down, reflection, and goal-setting. Synchronistically, this falls right with our current Mercury retrograde period. Mercury will stay retrograde until May 14 but won’t be back
I don’t feel well today. A bit queasy. A bit dizzy. Whenever I close my eyes, the world behind my eyelids drifts in a clockwise way—slowly and disorienting. It started last night after dinner when I ate homemade Korean beef and rice. My Korean mother-in-law taught me her recipe for bulgogi, which is so delicious you can soak rocks in it, and they will be tasty. My tastes usually run toward vegetables, fruits, and complex carbs, but who could say no to bulgogi? So, I admit, I overdid it. My pulses were quite upset and chaotic by bedtime, so I
As Saturn prepares to change signs from Aquarius to Pisces on March 7, I am reminded that it stands not only for boundaries, structures, and rules but also for release. Release of what is outdated. Release of what we have outgrown. And what better way to facilitate this process than keeping Safety Energy Lock 21 open? Mary Burmeister calls it the Safety Energy Lock of “Release from Mental Bondage.” I like to combine SEL 21 with SEL 4, the “Measuring Intelligence” of our body. The combination is particularly good for tired eyes after a day spent sitting in front of
Where is your intent? New Moon occurs in two days and whatever preoccupies your mind at that time sets the tone for the entire month ahead. On Saturday, the Moon and Sun will meet in Aquarius, the bringer of light and everything new. It likes to tinker and experiment, perennially dissatisfied with the status quo, working toward improvement. So, grab this opportunity and be open to new energies, ideas, and solutions. For me, Aquarius is in the fifth house of joy and creative expression, opposite the eleventh house of friends, groups, and plans for the future. I am setting my
Did you know that Mary Burmeister gives as one of the functions of SEL 5 helping with digestive discomfort? (SH2, p. 20) Have you experienced its harmonizing effect? Until two days ago, I never did. Whenever I talked about Safety Energy Lock 5 in the past, I always described it as the mind specialist, the agent that helps us navigate chaotic times and accept changes. Two nights ago, my husband took me to a business-related event at a one-Michelin-star restaurant in downtown DC. The food presentation was exquisite. It was all candlelight and a cozy atmosphere, so I could not
Hello everyone! There is an elegant symmetry in placing our hands consequently on both SEL 15, then SEL 25, then SEL 21, and finally on SEL 4. Can you see it? I hit upon this pattern this morning and took 20 minutes to complete it. It felt wonderful. Laughter, then stillness. Let go of all the limiting beliefs that mar your window and keep the Light obscured. Enjoy!
