Whatever You Judge
Under the Arcane Laws that govern this Galaxy of Adaptation, we need to look at the Fourth Arcane Law: the Law of Reflection. The Law of Reflection shows us and demonstrates to us self definition. We have the opportunity to see ourselves in every moment by what we have attracted to us. It is our attraction and what we do with our attraction that allows or disallows manifestation to occur. When judgment comes into play it is a good sign to get conscious and look in the mirror. It is judgment that shows us who we are, whether conscious or unconscious.
To work with judgment from a conscious space we must ask ourselves three questions.
Manifestation Comes to
Manifestation comes to those who know cycles. Cycles are amplified to us when we look at nature, especially when we see nature evolving into it´s fullness in autumn. Autumn is a time when nature reflects to us our own fullness so we can become aware of what we have manifested. We see through the cycles of nature, the process of manifesting by watching the germination in spring come into fullness in summer and then releasing in autumn. Winter provides for us the awareness required to truly manifest by creating a void.
The entire holiday season is a symbolic ritual that allows us to align with the natural cycles of fullness and the natural cycles of releasing so that we can become void, empty and open to receive the new cycle of manifestation in the spring. The process of gift giving and gift receiving provides us with the perfect symbolic background for connecting to the cycles of manifestation that nature demonstrates to us during this most powerful time.
You Are the Gift! The giving part of the equation is the acknowledgement of your abundance. In the true sense, giving is the release of stored energy (i.e.) abundance. This stored abundance release allows you to become void and gives space for new life to be birthed in the spring, just as nature drops it´s leaves and these leaves become the mulch for the new sprouts to germinate in the spring.
To effectively commence the cycle of giving, you must buy yourself the first gift. This will make buying for others more effective and save you a lot of money. Remember, there is a difference between a gift and a present. A present is something you want someone to have a gift is something you know the receiver wants to receive.
You are the Receiver! The symbology of receiving is very important, for without it the cycle cannot be complete. Unfortunately, our culture has ignored this part of the equation by promoting an axiom that is not true, "It is better to give than receive." When receiving a gift, you are given the privilege to see the power of your magnetic field that is symbolic of the manifested results of your year´s experience. Your ability to receive sets up a manifesting field for the New Event structure in the NEW CYCLE! I am reminded of my teacher Barbra Dillenger´s most powerful words.
"You are the Gift, the Beginning of the Cycle
You are the giver, the Completion of the Cycle
You are the Receiver, the Result of the Cycle."
Pray for Paradise
It is a good idea to sit down and examine what you are warring with in your life and in your mind. Write down your biggest conflicts and resistances. Ask yourself where are you rebelling . Discover what you are praying for consciously or unconsciously, and then look for the opposite side of your prayer to see what you are creating for yourself. The elimination of conflict comes when we embrace the conflict and its polarity. Accept the fact that you have the ability to advance beyond conflict, by including it in your experience rather than fighting with it.
