Like everything else around us, my work is changing. I wanted to let you know about the changes and announce my new internet radio show.
For the next several years and beyond, we will experience unprecedented change - changes within Mother Earth, from the sun, within our governments, and every other facet of our lives. Nothing, absolutely nothing, will be left unchanged. As Uranus, the planet of awakening and sudden change, re-enters the sign of Taurus, the most earth-like sign of the Zodiac for the next seven or so years, and with the upcoming Saturn Pluto conjunction in January 2020, it can be no other way. Expect more severe Earth and weather changes, governmental changes, monetary changes, and the list goes on.
I am guided to share information about these changes in a new way. The focus of my work is shifting from writing to speaking and teaching. As such, I have started an internet radio show called Earth Energy Forecast on BlogTalkRadio. It generally airs every Tuesday at 2 PM Eastern where I or my guests discuss recent Earth changes, solar activity, pole movement, the science behind the movement, societal changes, anomalous weather events, astrological impacts, my intuitive insights into the current energies, ways to ride the waves of change and live more consciously on Mother Earth, and what we can do to affect positive change.
The Maya call this the lifetime of change. Most indigenous people refer to this time as the great purification. The Earth's magnetic poles have been migrating erratically and moving more quickly now. Just recently, it was reported that magnetic north was migrating from Canada towards Siberia. This rapid migration caused the recalculation of the World Magnetic Model so that the GPS would still be accurate. There is little doubt in the scientific community that we are in the midst of a pole reversal. When this will complete is still uncertain. Some say it will take thousands of years, some sixty years, others twenty-seven years, and some even say as early as five to seven years. This magnetic reversal will result in major Earth changes, so it is vitally important to stay up-to-date with the latest information. That is what I intend to provide on my radio show.
I hope that you will listen each week to various guests, teachings, information, and updates on Earth Energy Forecast. If you miss a show, you can still listen to it in the archive and download the podcast.
As another way of getting my work out to more people, I have also added six downloadable webinars to my website that you can purchase that contain most of the information from Hardwired to Heaven (which is no longer in print) and my last book, Into the Heart of Love. I am also bringing back an updated version of my Coeuressence School of Self-Mastery, a self-paced study that includes a pdf of my first book In the Key of Life: An Activational Journey to the Soul, a guidebook, five sound activations for self-forgiveness, self-worth, self-love, self-empowerment, and self-mastery, initial questionnaire and personal session with me, and for a limited time, all six webinars. Just go to the store page of my website to purchase any of the above.
Thanks for your support and for being here on beautiful Mother Earth at this time of renewal. Most prophecies include that there will be a time of peace and cooperation after these "bumps in the road." May it be so and may we all awaken to the love that we are!
Welcome to my new blog, Joan's Journey where I will share my journey of awakening to inspire and assist you on your journey. I thought I would begin with the story of how I left home and followed my heart as it took me to Sedona, Arizona.
It was the spring of 2003 when a May total lunar eclipse changed my life forever. Three things were eclipsed from my life by the end of that summer: my dog who was euthanized on the solstice, my partner of 14 years, and the home we built together. I called it getting the cosmic 2x4. If the Universe wants you to change, you WILL change whether you want to or not.
I will always remember the day that our dog, Shera, was euthanized. The vet came to the house early that morning. My partner held Shera in her arms while the vet injected the lethal dose. Shera cried out as the poison moved through her. I buried her in a wooden casket that we had made the night before. The pouring rain that day hid the myriad of tears I shed as I buried her. As I lifted each shovelful of soil, I felt my life being unearthed from all that I loved. "My God, what had I done?" I thought. The woman I thought I'd never leave was suddenly out of my life. My truest and best companion, my dog, was gone. In that moment I felt I had killed both - so I could live! Within a month, I moved out of our house that I had loved so dearly, and by the following October, I moved to Sedona.
I had always wanted to visit Sedona. Several of my friends had visited and told me stories of their journeys. I decided to go on a scouting trip in May of 2004, just a little over a year after that monumental eclipse. I fell in love with the red rocks and the energy of the land. I cried when I left and knew I had to return.
My journey to awakening meant leaving home, family, foundation, and all familiarity to travel to a place where I knew no one, that was like a foreign land coming from the east coast, and where a whole new world was opening before me. I had plenty of fear but I moved through it one step at a time. I was beautifully guided to rent a room from a woman who had recently lost her home in a fire. Little did I know that she and I would become friends and would become my Sedona housing angel. When I missed home and family, I drove to the high school parking lot where I could be alone to cry. Sedona's energy helps to release the old and I had a ton to release.
Shortly after I had arrived, I received a writing coaching session from Mark David Gerson. It was after that session that I began to write my first book, In the Key of Life: An Activational Journey to the Soul. I published it in 2007 and started my first blog the same year: Lifelines for a changing world. My first blog was about home and the heart - which became the focus of my work. Here is an excerpt from that first blog titled, Coming Home:
An interesting title for my first blog. I have been asked by several friends lately, when are you coming home? Home? The east coast is no longer my home. I live in Sedona, Arizona. Then I asked myself, "Is Sedona my home?" The answer came immediately. No. So where is home?
Home is where the heart is, so the saying goes. My heart is the center of my being, the core essence of who I am. After all, the heart has been associated with the emotion of love for centuries. Love is who we are, the "stuffings" of the universe. If I follow my heart, I am not following someone or something outside of myself. I am following an internal compass, a homing device, if you will, within my heart. As long as I follow the tracking beam of my homing device, I am good to go. It is similar to an ancient Chinese device used to find their way back home. They placed a wooden statue of their emperor, arm outstretched and finger pointing, atop a cart. Underneath the cart was a series of cogs that would turn as the wheels turned. As the cart was pulled, the wooden statue would turn in such a way as to always point toward home, no matter which direction the cart was pulled or how far away from home it was.
My heart has pulled me in many different directions, some thousands of miles away from "home." I imagine that some of my friends and family wonder about my wanderings. We all have our own path to follow. The heart knows what no one else has seen.
To answer the question posed by my friends back east - I am always home.
On your journey of awakening, you may need to leave behind things you hold dear. I felt like I had lost everything but in the end, I gained myself. We each walk our own path of awakening. Yours may be different but all roads lead to the same place - home - the heart of who you are.
In just a matter of days, the last of the trilogy of eclipses will arrive. This triad has been tedious, trying, and tiring and it's not over yet. The last eclipse on August 11, just days after the Lion's Gate, will be the icing on the cake. This one may seal the deal for the remainder of your life. You had better get clear about what your heart desires. What you think your heart wants and what it truly wants may not be the same. Be authentic and true to yourself even if what your heart wants goes against societal norms or what others think you should do. Whatever you ask for on this day, will come to pass. Be careful what you wish for because you will get it.
Well, you say, that sounds great! Not so fast. First we have some diving to do into our deepest wounds, karmic connections and contracts, worn out beliefs closet, and past patterns. These are the things that have been holding us steady for so long. Think of the analogy of a rocket on a launch pad. You are the rocket. What keeps the rocket upright are the supports holding onto it. We needed these supports to keep us from tipping over (self-destruction) and from taking off too soon. The supports are those wounds, karmic connections and contracts, worn out beliefs, and past patterns. In order for a successful launch, these "supports" must fall away.
But a rocket needs more than its supports to fall away in order to launch. It needs fuel. What fuels your desires? What is your passion - the one that comes from living your heart's deepest desires? This eclipse asks you to get crystal clear about what your heart is passionate about. Know with a certainty what your heart truly wants no matter how grandiose it may sound. There is no compromising anymore. Only the grandest vision of the greatest version of who you are will do.
This eclipse is our launch pad. Just look at the astrology chart for a few days before. Doesn't it feel like a launch pad? (This is a screen shot of the chart for August 7, 2018 taken of the Leo King's YouTube video "Deep Astrology Weekly August 7-13, 2018 )
Intense, huh? You betcha. Identify and clear those worn out beliefs, past patterns, karmic connections and contracts that no longer serve you. Heal what you can or cut your losses and go. It's time to take off. Lift off is a precisely timed event. There is no more time to deliberate, decipher, or get mired in the details. Go into your heart and do its bidding now. Time to take off!
May you land all of your heart's deepest desires, live your passion and find your bliss.
It has been one wild year so far. I said May was going to be magical and momentous! I think I failed to mention it was also going to be momentously challenging. May was by far the hardest month I have experienced in a long time. While the changes I experienced were very positive, the emotional roller coaster I rode was everything a roller coaster can be: exhilarating, fast, scary, nauseating, and happy to have survived it! This ride took me to the depths of love and opened my heart in ways I never thought possible and the "good" news is - it's not over yet!
We have got some of the most potent ascension energy coming this summer. But before I go into that, let me just set the stage for this dramatic shift we are about to experience.
In the merry month of May, Uranus, the planet of cosmic consciousness, entered the earth sign of Taurus. There has been much written about this dynamic transit. For me, the highest vibration of Uranus in Taurus is bringing Heaven to Earth. It forces us to finally embody all of the higher teachings we have so diligently studied for years, or should I say, lifetimes! As I wrote in Hardwired to Heaven, "A true creator creates with one hand in Earth and the other in Heaven." To live as the gods that we are, we must embody our divinity into every cell of our bodies. This is the ultimate gift of Uranus in Taurus.
There will be five energy gateways this summer: the summer solstice on June 21, a partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12, a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, the Lion's Gate on 8/8, and another partial solar eclipse in Leo on August 11. First, let me say that it is rare to have three eclipses in row. Generally, we have a lunar and solar eclipse within two weeks of one another. This makes these three eclipses that much more meaningful. Next, there are five major gateways. Five is the number of the human being. Pythagoras viewed the number 5 as the marriage between Heaven and Earth - the Hieros Gamos, the sacred union with the Divine on a personal level, relationship level, and the greater whole of humanity. We are entering the energetic pentagram of divine embodiment.
The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, reminds us that life on Earth is dependent on the sun. We need light and the consciousness it brings in order to thrive on planet Earth. The first eclipse is in the emotional sign of Cancer. Here we prepare our soil by feeding it our emotions until we reach emotional maturity. The total lunar eclipse in Aquarius will help us to tend to our mind and bring it into balance and cleanse our high heart so that we embody the love of humanity. The Lion's Gate brings in new light codes to enable the embodiment of our Divine Sovereignty. The third solar eclipse in Leo requires that we love ourselves fiercely and bring the heart into balance. All of this energetic divine grace helps us to truly balance the mind and heart and embody our Divinity.
During these potent gateways, many of the planets will be retrograde. Jupiter has been retrograde since March 8 and will go direct on July 10, giving us some breathing space. Saturn has been retrograde since April 17 and will move forward on September 6. Pluto went retrograde a few days after Saturn on April 22 and will appear to move again on September 30. Neptune goes retrograde on June 18 until November 24. Mars goes retrograde June 26 until August 27. Mercury goes retrograde July 26 until August 18. And finally, Uranus goes retrograde on August 7 for the remainder of the year until January 6, 2019. Wow, that's a lot of retrograde! Retrograde planets offer an opportunity to go within and sift through our compost pile of the past to rid ourselves of what no longer serves while tending the soil of our greatest treasures. It is not a time to move full steam ahead, rather it is a time to go within - to go into the physical and mine our Divinity. Before we can emerge this fall, we have heart and soul work to do.
Just as a roller coaster ascends to gain potential energy, we, too, will ascend this summer and reach the apex of our ascension when we balance our hearts and minds, master our emotions, experience true self love, and embody our Divine selves. What a ride!
The first quarter of 2018 felt more like 2017: trying, tiring, and tumultuous. It was a time of deep cleaning and preparation for the gifts that we are about to receive. Through this 3D inner metamorphosis to 5D, we can now emerge fresh from our chrysalis. It's time to dry off our wings and learn how to fly in all our splendor.
The rest of 2018 will feel much different. We finally awaken to the grandest version of ourselves and the greatest vision of our work. We have held them lovingly in our hearts, knowing that one day we would step into our divine destiny. That day is here.
As we renew our commitment to our life's mission and slowly create our work step-by-step, we open the cosmic door to our treasure chest. Synchronicity abounds. When we align our heart, mind, body, and spirit with our soul's mission, we create a portal through which divine dispensation flows. The more we do our inner work, the more we attract opportunities to share our outer work with others. This is the true abundance of 5D: exquisite bliss from being of service to the One Heart.
We awaken fully to our our creative power. We realize that, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we too, have had the power all along. But the power that we are wielding now comes from our heart, not our head. The One Heart wrote it into our software that we could only become fully empowered once our heart is fully open.
I recently experienced a plethora of uncanny synchronicity and the most profound heart opening of my life. My heart longed for someone that would know me on a soul level, someone with which I could share my deepest desires and share in my work. I could never have imagined how everything that I had dreamt of could unfold so beautifully and effortlessly before me. Love and magic do come from the most unexpected places and in the most unexpected ways.
Your miracle will appear soon if it hasn't already. Be patient this year for you are building a firm foundation that will last a lifetime. Saturn in Capricorn requires it. Pay attention to your intuition and follow every bit of guidance. Create like the God that you are. Love even more than you thought possible for this is the key that opens the magical door to your heart's desires.
Wiped clean. Fresh start. Blank slate. Pure potential. Uncharted territory.
Can you relate to any of these phrases? We are in a new time and a new place - a place where humanity has never visited before. A new day and a new dawn is breaking. Everything is different and more importantly, everything works differently.
Welcome to human 2.0. Not only has our operating system been changed, but the machine itself, our body, has changed. The Adam Kadmon (the perfect body that merges with God) is awakening in many of us, allowing our full potential as co-creators with God to emerge. We are now conscious "real-time" creators of our life. Ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall open for you - not twelve years from now, not twelve weeks from now but maybe twelve days from now or less! As I wrote in my first book, In the Key of Life: An Activational Journey to the Soul, "If we truly believe we can create our reality, then synchronicity happens immediately. The perceived time lapse between the thought and its manifestation is decreasing now. This time lapse facilitated your slumber and allowed for the illusion of powerlessness to pervade your minds until now. This is what it means to awaken."
Have you noticed that you are manifesting more quickly now? Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions. Notice what emotions are coming up, old patterns that are surfacing to be cleared, and what manifests because of them. Recently, I was clearing an old pattern and I manifested a series of physical symptoms from the flu, to a bout of dizziness that kept me in bed for a day, a very painful rib that went out of alignment, and a fall all within a month! I'm not saying that your clearing or thoughts will manifest in this way. We all process our inner work differently. The point is things will show up rapidly and repeatedly until we shift our thoughts and emotions. I also had the experience of thinking of something I would like and then someone gives it to me without asking!
We can no longer live by default and let the Universe choose for us. The quick pick is no longer available for life's lottery. We have to pick our numbers. It's time to move from passive disempowered complacency to actively co-creating the life we envision.
Taking the wheel of creation can be a bit intimidating. In 2004, I performed a death and rebirth ceremony for myself. After the ceremony, I remember feeling similar to how I feel now. I wrote about it in In the Key of Life: "I asked for freedom and now that it is here, I find myself without a clear focus and my energy scattered. I would call myself back, but I don't know whom I am calling. I know I do not choose to call back the person I was. Is this what it feels like to be God? To know that I am like an Etch A Sketch wiped clean and waiting for the next creation to appear is daunting. I am the sea of pure potentiality.I felt it in my body, so much power. I want to run away and yet I know I must step into my power. It takes incredible courage to walk into it and say, 'I am God incarnate. I am the divine in form. Now I create.' Now I manifest, not from old unconscious thought patterns, but from each breath of my being and each word I utter...."
To successfully maneuver this energy, keep focused on your goal. Each day, revisit, revise, and refine what you choose to create and take at least one tangible step towards its manifestation. Show the Universe that you are in the driver seat of your dreams and watch what the Universe steers your way.
As we reflect on all the blessings, sorrows, pain, and joy that 2017 brought us, it's hard not to take a sigh of relief that it's almost over. The world has seen historical natural disasters, societal tensions and riots, changes in governments and their leaders, the degradation of our natural resources, and the threat of nuclear war in just twelve short months. I, for one, am happy to bid 2017 good-bye.
Saturn is a planet that likes to hold your feet to the fire to be sure that the grandest version of yourself is manifest in the world. It moves into Capricorn next week. Capricorn is an Earth sign and Saturn wants us to make our dreams a physical reality. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 literally unearthing what we individually and collectively have kept hidden. Uranus, the planet of sudden change, will move into Taurus (another Earth sign) in May of 2018. Our physical reality is about to change but Taurus will slow the pace a bit. Baby steps and going with the flow work best with this energy. What does all of this mean?
With so many slow planets in Earth signs, it's clear that it's time to ground our dreams and physically carry out our life's work - the reason we came to Earth at this crucial time. Saturn in Capricorn is here to help and Uranus in Taurus is here to insure that we build our new life slowly and steadily. These planets and their placements remind us that we are Earthlings in addition to spiritual beings.
Now is a good time to prepare your soil so that you can lay down roots in 2018. Meditate on what your heart beckons you to do. Give thanks for all of the lessons and blessings that you received in 2017. Do a ceremony to release the past five years of limbo land for it is finally time to land!
May you manifest your heart's deepest desires and ground your life's work in 2018.
Thank you for all of your support and Happy Holidays!
