I went through the Energy Reports to look at Nexuses since Dec 21 2012, when we officially moved into the Mature Soul Age. I summarized each one in my own words, but you can just go to each Energy Report post in the transcripts and see what was written if you'd like. I hope this sparks some understanding of the world in the last few years. It's very interesting to see how each Nexus builds up into the next. Try not to think of them as separate points in time, but as a stream of energy forming or dissipating into the next- as it's a lot more entertaining to see the patterns holistically. 2012 Dec 21= MAJOR DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE: Realities branch and merge because of various beliefs and theories about shifts, destruction, ascension etc. that emphasize our Anxious Uncertainty and whether this will be met with Reaction or Response. 2013 (Based on the info below, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Confidence) Jan 5-8= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch that either emphasize and amplify Collective Stubbornness especially in Politics & International Events- or free themselves from that to move on. Feb 11-15= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Flow. Realities branch that either resign to -Inertia, or actively contribute to collective redirection. Around this period, it’s especially inspiring and motivating to create structures that increase our capacity for peace, calm, abundance and +Freedom. Mar 15= DIVERGENCE: Same as the February Divergence, but with more resistance to being responsible for the Flow of our life. - Jun 14-16= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge due to a rise of consciousness among all of them that are aiming to represent one’s Personality more confidently in the world. This Nexus merges several branches from our past that resigned from their Power and hid themselves from scrutiny, rejection, failure etc.- but have now accepted their Empowerment, bringing a mix of grief, anguish, struggle, insight, motivation and excitement. - Aug 2-5= DIVERGENCE: Versions of us “peel away” from this reality to focus on their collapsing, ignored, rejected or eclipsed Ideals. Aug 28-31= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Resolution. A spontaneous branching for the Collective to focus on various ideals and responsibilities still unresolved in Politics. On the Personal Level, this brings apocalyptic, disastrous or disturbing imagery through dreams as we are “weeding out” the worst-case scenarios for how these world issues could be tackled. - Oct 7-21= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off to focus on strikingly different versions of our future Global Economy. This then pivots us all toward or away from a Resource-based Economy. Nov 9-11= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. A Reunion of Parallels where we or significant others passed away. This brings dreams in that recall vague, strange variations of our life/experiences that came from other parallels where we or our loved ones, animal companions or people from our past actually died. Dec 1-3= MINI CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. A Nexus that merges any parallel versions of us/others that died over the past few months. Dec 15-19= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Acceleration. A branching into 2014’s Intellectual Priest in Growth energy, or not. If there’s a rapid amplification into a strong whirlwind of activities & effort emphasizing renewed enthusiasm for your intentions, projects and tasks for 2014 then this would’ve occurred. Otherwise, these last 2 Weeks of 2013 would be more calming and recuperative before the coming January Nexus. 2014 (Based on the info below, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Healing) Jan 6-8= DIVERGENCE: Parallels split that will most strongly or weakly emphasize the core themes of 2014- bringing more focus and footing to our Intentions. Feb 12-15= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Relating. Parallels “here” that are working on growing closer to tentative relationships & dropping barriers/inhibitions in the process, merge with those realities that have already done so. Mar 29-31= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that wish to bring focus back to projects, plans, future anticipations and coordination through Cooperation and Community. - Apr 5-9= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge that branched off as far back as Childhood. This may cause dreams to come up bringing back nostalgic symbols/memories from our childhood and any past lives resonating with that. May 17-19: CONVERGENCE: Themed in Turning Points. A subtle or obvious haunting, distracting sense that how we’re doing things may need to change- merging us into parallels where we are already doing things that matter more to us. Jun 3-8= DIVERGENCE: Themed in Efficiency. Those involved in this nexus branch off parts of themselves not willing to participate in/contribute to the changes needed to create new paths for their life. This brings a sharp halt to those that see their ideas for change would simply not work, so they then clean out their mind/heart of these attachments. - Aug 25-30= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: Parallels that have similar realizations about Global or Environmental Conflicts now merge. On a smaller scale, versions of us that are exploring internal conflicts & indecisiveness about commitments/directions now shift to either a conscious choice toward personal/global fulfillment or a needed breakdown & rebuilding. *A branch of realities from the 1700s CE where the US wasn’t founded & wide-scale religious, political and military oppression ensued across the globe for the last 200 years, now merge with ours- as they have gone through uprisings since the 80s against this to establish a constitution that is now birthing the US in 2014 “there”. This will either lead the US out of its seat of power for the next 20-50 years, or escalate it into a heightened position beyond all comprehension. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Maureen.) - Oct 28-31= DIVERGENCE: Permanently-wounded aspects of us that refuse to allow Healing branch off, freeing those that are willing to heal to feel relief. Nov 26= CONVERGENCE: Versions of us that are willing to Heal now merge, bringing gratitude, appreciation and comfort that can bring more relief, confidence and trust again. Dec 11-13= CONVERGENCE: More parallels and people that have brought wounding to the surface come together to Heal anything from across 2014. Waves of creative solutions and resources now emerge to facilitate this personal and social healing. 2015 (Based on the info below, my guess is this was a Year of Collective Peace) Feb 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch based on choices toward -Subservience or +Devotion. This focuses us on healing parts of our life left in broken circuits, or brings out realizations of anything missing that could replenish our Submission. Mar 20-23= CONVERGENCE: A Reunion of parallels from 1999 over the Fear of Technology. They explored moving away from technology, then cleared up these fears & returned trust in it, merging with us. This Nexus then explores how technological impact is accelerating & how we need to either take breaks from it to return balance, or transform isolating technologies into more meaningful and intimate ones. - Apr 18-20= CONVERGENCE: A Reunion of parallels from 2002 around Overreactions/Phobias that veered toward Full-scale War- but then brought focus back toward greater peace, merging with our Parallels that have secured that (even with clear growing pains). Jun 20-23= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch based on our reactions to Surprises happening through the month that bring shock or understanding. *In some parallels, Earthquakes happened in the Pacific Rim and New Madrid Fault. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Ask M Transcript.) - Jul 20-23= CONVERGENCE: June’s divergence separated parallels creating war/oppression & parallels creating equality/inclusion. This Nexus then brings all realities in that are actively evolving & exploring Equality, Inclusion, Empathy and Compassion. Aug 14= CONVERGENCE: Straggling Parallels of versions of us that gave up/stopped trying because of hardships/obstacles/struggles now return because they’ve worked on Healing. As such, we feel our sense of effort, enthusiasm and energy amplify now. Sep 14= CONVERGENCE: Parallels merge for those who explored isolation, separation, lack of intimacy/community etc. This Nexus then brings heightened efforts to nurture and sustain common ground, intimacy and resonance. On larger scales, this shift relates issues of immigration, borders and equality. - Oct 18= DIVERGENCE: Realities branch to bring Shifts in Power among countries. Nov 22-23= DIVERGENCE: Realities that are concerned with the balance of Practical Reality with Fantasy/Illusion, or an extreme entrenching in one or the other now branch off. For most older souls, this was a reality check nexus that could be used to practically nurture or plant our fantasies into reality. Dec 25-28= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch to explore dreaded or anticipated versions of the Future, through choices of self-nurturing or self-preservation. 2016 (A Year of Collective Turning Points [Confirmation]) Jan 10-15= CONVERGENCE: Themed in Death. Similar parallels reunite where certain fragments just died vs had died some time ago. Most who die in the next 3 Months are in final closure of all their parallels. Feb 8-17= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A Planetary Shift of parallels to more Peaceful and Humanitarian Paths, more Turbulent and Disruptive Paths, or more of “The Same”. This Nexus feels like letting go of directions you’re no longer interested in & a renewed conscious focus on what you are. Mar 19= MINI DIVERGENCE: A possible shift related to events caused by a high-profile event or person representing the force of a population/collective. If it occurred, it would narrow paths forward. - Apr 22-29= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A previous Energy Shift on April 16-19 that emphasized Power Struggles & made us see where our personal, national or global Center of Power is, may now result in a Shift in Power that closes down several potential parallels. May 30= MINOR DIVERGENCE: A small but intense shift that emphasizes a major event in your individual life or on a larger-scale for the country or planet. - Jul 29= DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off for those that are interested in escalating toward greater War. Sep 26= BREAKTHROUGH: For those in a Turning Point, this Nexus emphasizes Breakthrough and leaves behind the options of Breakdown. If this shift didn't come, you may have felt a huge release from gravity to float above and be free from patterns of burden and demand to recreate yourself, refresh your perspective, bring relief from fears so you can catch your breath & take on the rest of the year with vitality, creativity and love. - Nov 7-10= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A dramatic shift to work on Collective Karmic Themes. All living on the planet are on a path that seeks to heal the world on a profound and lasting level now- though it may not look like so as the wounds have to be clearly identified and pronounced & the creation of such peace is not always pretty. There are 2 Major Karmas being tapped into now. Younger Souls are working out Karma around choosing Collective Responsibility and Self-Discipline vs Self-Preservation and Oppression. Older Souls are working out Karma around choosing Passivity/Complacency and Convenience vs Being Awake and Taking Action to Resolve Legitimate Threats. Dec 13-21= CONVERGENCE: A slow, lengthy merging of all realities coming together on the verge of Global Revolution. 2017 (A Year of Collective Humanitarianism [This was confirmed, but I cannot find the Transcript, except for this.]) Jan 19-23= CONVERGENCE: Same as the December Convergence above. Feb 26-Mar 2= MAJOR DIVERGENCE: A nexus bringing the first signs of Relief from recent events. It was an exit ramp for those interested in extreme versions of reality which removed that element from our parallels to help improve morale for those “here”. Mar 30= MINI DIVERGENCE: Parallels branch off for those in our Energy Ring that are actively refusing Pleasure or Peace. - Apr 15-20= DIVERGENCE: Certain Parallels branch towards themes of War. May 19-21= DIVERGENCE: A potentially Dramatic Shift to more meaningful, acceptable and inclusive negotiations among world leaders- or more turmoil, shock and extremism. - Jul 20-23= MAJOR CONVERGENCE: A great clash between discordant realities arises- where how deeply you’re invested in Being Right vs Being Fair comes up, due to strong Declarations made by you+others toward one side or the other. On a Personal Scale, this shows as a strong sense you must choose between staying locked in -Subjectivity or finally embrace +Objectivity. For the Collective this divide shows in the Political Arena. Aug 21= DIVERGENCE: Branchings related to the Total Solar Eclipse that prompted unexpected effects triggering collective panic/shock or wonder/awe (especially in the US). Sep 20-23= DIVERGENCE: More branchings that shifted Parallels toward various extremes for the next 100 Years. As they split off, they acted like release valves bringing greater relief from pressure, or a continued sense of trust and calm in collective progress over collapse for our parallels “here”. - Oct 10-14= DIVERGENCE: A branching with unknown effects that were never explained. Nov 21= CONVERGENCE: A mix of Parallels where growing fears/anxiety/uncertainty were met with successful solutions now converge, bringing a fairly pivotal time for Healing & Problem-solving that will unfold over the next 3 to 6 Months. Dec 18-22= CONVERGENCE: An unusual merging of parallels that have “failed” or “succeeded” at fulfilling key patterns share in common extremes of Climate & Power Struggles. The same conditions exist across these realities, but there are differences in the people's capacity for resolving these daunting scenarios. A wave of “refugee” parallels that moved into hopelessness were integrating into our reality to seek help & this brought a sobering vision & awareness of the larger-scale issues for those who had been ignoring reality. 2018 (A Year of Collective Revolution [Confirmation by Kurtis]) Dec 23 2017 - Jul 11 2018= NEXUS BUBBLE: The Ms say that Nexuses are like synaptic pathways for the mind of Human Sentience to explore various passages of thought, emotion and action. A Nexus Bubble however, is like a neural cell that gets so dense with Karmic and Self-Karmic thoughts, emotions and actions it weighs humanity down. As such, we were now forced during this period of time to deal with these patterns of karma & self-karma until everyone on the planet could see it's a problem- and so any sense of personal reality was then flipped upside down so we could see the collective reality around us. Nexus Bubbles tend to occur during a monumental Paradigm Shift from one Soul Age to another, as there is a pivotal lesson learnt at these times that changes the course of life forever. (You can explore this in the Nexus Bubble Transcript) In our case, we are shifting from a Young Soul Paradigm to a Mature Soul Paradigm- and the karma & self-karma at hand is one of humanity continuing to perpetuate and allow all forms of INTENTIONAL VIOLENCE to occur indefinitely. During this period, we have learnt that we are all A PART OF LIFE, and that the idea that we all have separate personal lives is an illusion. As such we are facing the fear that we can't divide, separate, escape, compartmentalize ourselves from the world- and realizing a deep truth that we are all interconnected and always will be. Through this, Humanity is en route to generating a reality of GLOBAL UNITY, but this will play out in both negative and positive ways. --- July 12-21= NEXUS BUBBLE COLLAPSES, bringing MAJOR DIVERGENCE and CONVERGENCE. This shift is characterized by a strong sense of acceleration, intensity and escalation. The Divergence was focused on a Liberation of incompatible & disparate parts of everyone that were bottled up in the same reality throughout the Nexus Bubble. The Convergence was focused on various parallels of us Listening to our Core Voice- cutting off or through all the noisy bullshit voices around & inside us to hear at least one voice within or around that says we matter to & in this world. (Three Private Sessions talked about this: JanetH, Dawn and Becca.) Aug 25-27= CONVERGENCE: Parallels that each see "Strength in Numbers" and are willing to address, shift and resolve the looming potential of war & great conflict now merge. This marks a rise in serious awareness & consideration of the Reality of War, as Humanity comes to shift away from Young Soul ideas of Growing through Conflict, and into Mature Soul ideas of Growing through Compassion. September 25-27: DIVERGENCE: Sudden and solid obstacles came up that needed immediate solutions. The more one was locked into Dogma, the harder the path to solutions was for the Personality, Community or Planet. --- November 5-11: MAJOR DIVERGENCE: Parallels spin off to explore a morbid curiosity for and apathy to a 5 Year descent into Unimaginable Dystopia. (This info is not from the Energy Report, but from this Private Session by Janet.) December 31-January 3: CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to Heal and Recover. 2019 (A Year of Collective Empowerment [Confirmation by Rosario]) March 1-5: DIVERGENCE: Parallels spin off to explore various "worst-case scenarios". [Perhaps for the 5 Year descent into Unimaginable Dystopia?] --- April 19-22: CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together with a focus on the Cleanup and Sorting through of one’s house, relationships, mind etc. May 18-21: CONVERGENCE: Parallels come together to focus on True Grounding through a growing sense of emotional peace and sanctuary that is done with old problems, and ready to embrace new power and pleasure through revitalizing social connections. June 21: CONVERGENCE= We're merging with parallels that have increased inspiring actions in their lives and world towards renewed paths of enthusiasm for a better future- because they've committed to Participating in their lives and now we are too.
Today is Thanskgiving Day in the U.S. A day where we in theory celebrate the success of the Mayflower colonists who survived in the "new world" in part because of the kindness and generosity of the First Nations people they encountered when they arrived. Mostly tho, families and friends get together to eat turkey (or tofurkey) and argue about politics and personal gripes, and watch football. Anyway, there's been a lot of doom and gloom around these parts lately and I thought expressing something positive would be a good break from the horror show that is currently US politics, so I want to say what I'm thankful for. I'm thankful for my mother. She's been really supportive of me these past few difficult financial years for me as I continue to search for a job/new career. She's nurtured my yarn crafting and let me turn the dining room table into craft central. She huzzahed when I applied for a competitive teaching fellowship, and I'm grateful I made it halfway through the process when I thought I was going to be rejected outright. She's paid my phone bill so it wouldn't get turned off, and gives me subway fair to go to my part time volunteer spot, and so much more. I love her so much. I'm also starting to figure out her overleaves, so that's great too. I'm thankful for my friends who have supported me financially and emotionally. Who take me out to brunches and dinners and ply me with wine and hard cider when I ask. You know who your true friends are when you hit rock bottom and they are still there. I'm also grateful to the new friends I've made this year, especially the one who showered me with literally a suitcase full of designer clothes she didn't want that were brand new with tags and fit me perfectly, when I mentioned that I hadn't been able to buy new clothes in two years. (This is a travesty for a fashionista, btw) Hello new jumpsuit that I'm going to wear today. Thank you for coming into my life. I'm even thankful for the retail job that I had for a couple months this spring before I got laid off so they could cut hours. It was in a yarn store and I'm thankful I had a chance to learn new yarn skills and teach some skills, and to meet lots of other nice and creative people who are as obsessed with yarn arts as I am. I'm also thankful to Michael's craft store for being within walking distance of my apartment and all the coupons. So many coupons. I'm thankful 2016 wasn't worse than it already has been. And even tho we lost so many creative musical geniuses, I'm grateful they left us with a creative body of work that will hopefully endure long enough to be considered classical music. I'm thankful for Obamacare and my free doctor visits and super cheap prescriptions. I've had a few health scares and challenges this year and if not for it I'd probably have died because I'd likely have not gone to a doctor since I couldn't have afforded it. Lastly, I'm thankful for wine. Wine is just the best. So what are you thankful for on this day of giving thanks? You don't have to be American to share. :)
Seeing as how this year is a big Turning Point year, I'm deciding to look at times of Nexus Branching or Merging throughout the year to see any patterns. If you want to see the direct writings from Troy, just click on the links below. *(Also look at this for a more direct look at how parallels occur: http://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/290-more-parallel-and-timeline-background-information/#comment-523 Energy Shifts are most likely Interference and Amplitudes leading to or away from convergences and divergences.) 2015 4th QUARTER- EMPHASIZES SCHOLAR and HIGHER MOVING CENTER ENERGY OCTOBER 2015- Emphasizes Stubbornness>Greed Oct 9-11- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY SURGE- A surge of anxiety/panic/worry, or enthusiasm/ideas/excitement. It can be used however one chooses. Oct 18- DIVERGENCE- An initial wave of branching parallels related to shifts in power among countries. NOVEMBER 2015 Nov 3- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY SURGE/DRAIN- A day that brings either a surge of enthusiasm or irritation, but if not harnessed, may quickly become exhaustion+frustration. Nov 22-23- DIVERGENCE- A branching based on those focused on the balance between fantasy+illusion and practical reality- or extremes of focus on those. DECEMBER 2015 Dec 18- ENERGY SHIFT- HIGHER MOVING SURGE- A day that may mark a "big change" that will carry through 2016 on some level, and/or an obvious insight into the momentum of 2016 on the planet. Dec 25-28- DIVERGENCE- A branching of parallels between anticipated and dreaded versions of the future. 2016- EMPHASIZES SERVER and MOVING CENTER ENERGY JANUARY 2016- Emphasizes Discrimination Jan 10-15- CONVERGENCE- Parallels reunite, with some being those where some fragments died, and others being where those same fragments are/were recently alive. Most who die over the next 3 months are in their final closure of all parallels. (Probably means that they're dying before the turning point.) Jan 20-25- ENERGY SHIFT-RELIEF- A time of needed relief, rest, communion, creativity etc. FEBRUARY 2016 Feb 6-9- ENERGY SHIFT-COMPLETIONS/BEGINNINGS- Revolves around the end of something, and the beginning of another. This can be a time of relief/enthusiasm/refreshing perspective+energy, or dread/sadness/overwhelm- the difference in experience depends on whether one cares too much+wants to control more, cares too little+resents/resigns from the responsibility of caring, or wants to learn how to better care. Feb 8-17- MAJOR DIVERGENCE- A Global Shift that divides those parts of self/community/globe, more interested in humanitarian+peaceful paths vs. turbulent+disruptive paths vs. the same as things are. MARCH 2016 Mar 17- ENERGY SHIFT-PHOBIA- Shift into Caution begins. People look towards and experience their unwarranted fears/reactions and their actions based on that. Mar 19- MINI DIVERGENCE- Dependent on whether events happen, that are generated by a high-profile event/person representing the force of a population/collective. If this occurs, the effects would be in terms of narrowing paths forward. APRIL 2016- Emphasizes Caution Apr 16-19- ENERGY SHIFT-POWER STRUGGLE- Related to a shift in power on a larger-scale. On more personal levels- a time when adjustments are needed to determine where one's center of power is, and how to move forward with that. Apr 22-29- MAJOR DIVERGENCE- Dependent on whether a shift in power as above occurs, and would reflect this shift. Closes down several potential(unformed) parallels. MAY 2016 May 7-9- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY SURGE- A time when anxiety/shock/worry/dread or excitement/enthusiasm/surprise/pleasure may amplify. May 30- MINI DIVERGENCE- Brings intense emphasis to a major event in one's life, or locally, or for one's country/the planet. JUNE 2016 Jun 1-3- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY REDUCTION- A plummet in energy occurs so people can step out from a negative spiral and reset. It emphasizes moving away from a greater collective pattern and generating a new, more appealing pattern. Jun 20- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY SURGE- Shift towards Cynicism, leading to a rise in agitation/sensitivity or excitement in moving forward. JULY 2016- Emphasizes Cynicism Jul 3-7- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY REDUCTION- Plummet in energy resulting from trying to keep it together and focus on the positive. A time to pause, exhale, slow down, catch up to oneself etc. Jul 19- ENERGY SHIFT-ENERGY SURGE- A shift towards convictions+common ground causes, personally+collectively. Jul 29- DIVERGENCE- A focus on branching off parts of self interested in an escalation of conflict to greater war. AUGUST 2016 Aug 2- ENERGY SHIFT-TENTATIVE RELIEF- Brings a sense of possibility+perspective, and some may feel the need to "snap out of it" and shift in perspectives, but feel it as daunting due to Denigration. Aug 13- ENERGY SHIFT-KARMIC CLARITY- 2016 is a year of collective karma for what must be balanced/healed/corrected. This time helps to bring people out and up to the edges of chaos to gain a clearer sense of what needs to be done. Aug 27- ENERGY SHIFT-CONSCIOUS CREATION- A time of returning responsibility to one's creation of the future, and to unhook from heavy/personal patterns. Some may gain a well-needed sense of PERSPECTIVE & ATTITUDE for how to move forward. SEPTEMBER 2016 Sep 9-11- ENERGY SHIFT-POWER VS POSSIBILITY- Likely shows up as a power struggle between sustaining optimism+possibility, or being torn between the weight of destruction and construction. A time to step back and remind oneself of beauty/possibility/pleasure. Sep 26- BREAKTHROUGH NEXUS- As 2016 is a year of Turning Points, this is a time when that acceleration moves to either BREAKDOWN or BREAKTHROUGH, or a feeling of freeing release, followed by a return to recreating oneself+refreshing one's perspective. This may be subtle or obvious, but long-term in effect. OCTOBER 2016- Emphasizes Self-Destruction Oct 15- ENERGY SHIFT- BRACING FOR IMPACT- A tense, stressful, fight or flight time for knowing one is ready for the drop from the "top of the roller coaster". Either hang on for dear life and "enjoy" the ride, or scream in terror+panic and add to the noise.
ENERGY REPORT August 2016 2016 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year) GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec) AUGUST moves the energy directly into the core of the Cynic Attitude where the possibility for a shift into the Positive Pole is higher, though we must note that this possibility is slight. The Negative Pole has too high of an investment from too many and this can be daunting to work through, but this does not mean it is impossible nor does it mean you cannot turn this around on a personal level. We will state again that the Cynic Attitude in itself is not inherently unpleasant, but for those not familiar with it or are uncomfortable with contradiction, even the best of Cynic energy can feel inconvenient at best, but when Cynic is moving through the Negative Pole, Denigration, it can feel like an invisible, heavy weight that strips the joy and life from everything and feels exhausting. We also repeat: Cynic energy is vital to the expansion and evolution of active intelligence and discernment when it is in the Positive Pole of Contradiction because pursuit of integrity and truth through questioning, challenging, and countering presumptions is healthy, but when Cynic energy moves through the Negative Pole it is the active use of intelligence to undermine or destroy integrity and truth. Denigration is countering, questioning, and challenging for the sake of defending one’s conclusive perspective, not for expanding or evolving in one’s expanding perspective. Denigration seeks to undermine, devalue, belittle, and destroy that which is questioned, rather than listen to answers or see the truth. Currently, individual perspectives are deep in Denigration or deeply affected by those in Denigration. The undermining of integrity and truth as a means for destroying that which is the target of questioning is in full momentum of effect. The only response to this can be the Positive Pole that is Contradiction. If our students feel the weight of Denigration affecting them, or if they find themselves being swept up in participating in the Denigration, it can be helpful to return to Contradiction. This means surprising yourself with a questioning of your intent, a questioning of your own perspective. If you feel generally defeated, defensive, frustrated, angry, and exhausted, surprise yourself. Think differently. Try a different angle. Try changing your focus. Try expanding your focus. This is not to ignore that which is affecting you, but to help you find solutions and alternatives to what is affecting you. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate): August 2nd -- ENERGY SHIFT - TENTATIVE RELIEF - This shift seems to bring with it a sense of possibility and perspective, but not a lot of confidence in that relief. Some may feel this is a good time to “snap out of it” and try a shift in perspective, but it may seem too easy to slip back into the weight of effect from Denigration. August 13th -- ENERGY SHIFT - KARMIC CLARITY - Most of 2016 has been a difficult and painful look at collective Karma and what remains to be balanced, corrected, and healed. While deep in this exploration, it can feel quite overwhelming, but this Energy Shift helps to bring many fragments back out and up and to the edges of the chaos for a clearer sense of what needs to be done. August 27th -- ENERGY SHIFT - CONSCIOUS CREATION - This energy shift appears to be a return to a sense of responsibility for how one creates the next steps in the life. Many of our students may find that they can finally unhook from the collective patterns that have felt quite heavy and personal, and return to a sense of navigation that is inspired by personal choice, response, and Manifesting of Essence. A sense of pivotal and conscious choice in PERSPECTIVE and ATTITUDE for how to move forward is here. [no nexus in August] HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER August: SURPRISE YOURSELF - When you feel overwhelmed by the sense of destruction to truth and integrity in the world, surprise yourself. See if you can find a different perspective. See if you can find the threads of positive possibilities. See if you can do something else to help free your energy, heart, and head for a while so you can return to your concerns more energized, clear, and enthusiastically. FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE MAKES MORE FIRE - If you see the world as being chaotic, confusing, overwhelming, depressing, struggling, etc. it does not help if you bring that same energy into the mix. It is okay to experience these emotions, but it is not helpful if you stop there. Bring joy, bring perspective, bring surprise, bring levity, bring play, bring something different. Even if only for a moment. Bring something different.
