The Collective Impact The New Moon In Gemini Is Bringing

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on June third we are collectively experiencing the influence of a New Moon in 12 degrees and 33 minutes of the fun loving air sign Gemini. This is a wonderful time for all of us to come together and be playful with another, exchange in mindful ways how we hope our future together  develops from here on.
The
spiritual influence of this lovely New Moon in Gemini is pushing us towards examining the ways how we are communicate with ourselves and with others. Its a good time to adapt our wording towards a more harmonious and balanced way of expressing our care for life and love on planet earth.

I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.
Albert Einstein

The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.
Anthony Robbins

The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug
Mark Twain

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.
Peter Drucker

One theme that many of us can get in touch with during the impact of the upcoming New Moon in Gemini, is the cooperation and collaboration of different forces on planet earth. On the inside that allows us to unite fractured mindsets – on the outside it might lead to brand new teamwork building. Stay tuned in and follow your personal guidance closely in order to receive the whole potential of those blessings!
Collaboration has no hierarchy. The Sun collaborates with soil to bring flowers on the earth.
Amit Ray

The lowly have small ambitions, and are satisfied with small indulgences. They need not get fair treatment. They need only think that they do.
Joe Abercrombie

On collective levels as much us within ourselves we might face the question of what hierarchies mean to us. Which structures are truly needed in order to guarantee a constant flow in our human life, and which ones are mostly serving the upholding of the powers in place.

Ask yourself the following questions:
How do I feel about the existing power structures and hierarchies?
Am I unconsciously part of depressing power structures?
How can my personal behavior bring more balance into the collective systems of life?

We must recognize, discuss, and dismantle this hierarchy that polices bodies and values certain ones over others.
Janet Mock

Activity, effort, achievement, or service outside a hierarchical relationship and unmeasured by professional standards, threatens a commodity-intensive society.
Ivan Illich

There is both inner and outer work to do. One cannot be neglected for the other. This is the great balance.
Marshall Vian Summers

Today you are planting seeds to your dream. Be patient because it will be a large harvest.
Chris Burkmenn

The fact that you lack the fruits is not a proof that you don’t have seeds. It’s not too late to drop your potentials into a good soil. Do it now; harvest awaits you soon!
Israelmore Ayivor
Dear Ones, I hope you all feel inspired and activated by the beautiful Gemini New Moon field these days. May you all find new ways of thinking and new ways of uniting your mind with your reality.
Love and New Moon Blessings!

How Entrepreneurs Combine Their Love Life With Their Personal Awakening Path

kby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
are you on an awakening path for yourself in this moment of time? And have you identified yourself as an entrepreneur my friend? If so,
you might feel already all your life like many of society’s rules, are just not right for you. As if the structures given are not there to help and protect, but to suffocate your life. You probably could not accept peoples usual ways of working simply for money, building relationships without meaning, and boring creations of a monotonous life. Entrepreneurs are usually quite self-driven people, they are comfortable with taking risks, and quite hard-working people.

An entrepreneur does not have a job, we live our work and we get just as much emotional fulfillment out of our personal mission and projects, as we do from our relationships. That results in us rather being free spirits, very independent and strong people, who need a partner only if he/she actually brings an extra on bliss and excitement as well as a higher quality to our life’s. Now over the last few month we have collectively anchored so many high vibrations onto the planet and into our physical bodies, that many of us can not deny the desire for new love relationships anymore. And than there is this silent voice, this inner knowing, that has driven our human souls lifetime after lifetime, in search of the perfect relationship.
So what is it we truly need when we are on one hand on a conscious personal awakening path, and have on the other hand the lifestyle of an entrepreneur to balance with our love life.dA Partner With Drive
Like I sad before, entrepreneurs are self-driven people who always have something interesting to do. Usually we are well aware of what we need, know how to ask for it, and when we commit to something – we are in it for the long run. So if an entrepreneur chooses a partner for an intimate relationship, it is wise to choose somebody who is just as self-driven and hands on practically involved in their own life, as we are in ours.

Somebody With Stability And Flexibility
When our life turns out to be entrepreneurship (and I have not met a person so far who had actually planed on becoming an entrepreneur – it is usually a character trait), we need a person next to us who has developed the virtues of inner stability and outer flexibility. Which basically means we need a partner who can handle sudden changes in our plans, without freaking out every time. Somebody who anyway loves rolling with the punches. A being able to enjoy every moment together, without sitting in irritation about the days we/or they where occupied otherwise.

Passionate People Who Fearlessly Share Their Fire
No doubt that entrepreneurs are passionate people thru and thru. We love as hard as we work hard, we are idealists and love what we do. When we engage in a love relationship, than because we want to shake the borders of the existing paradigms, in order to change the world together. We desire to fully give ourselves away when we love and we need a partner who feels the same kind of passion. When we than combine this treasures with an innocent heart, the golden age can start in our own home.
aCo-Creative Partner
Truth is, most entrepreneurs start of as lonely wolves. Logically as we have to find our own way. But that does not mean we can not co-create with others. In a entrepreneur love relationship it is very helpful when both partners have balanced feminine/masculine within themselves, before they start creating together. That way the forces will flow freely; you will not need ONE leader on the team but allow this role to freely change from day to day between you. The rule is as ever, the more light you hold within your self, the more space you can hold for co-creative expression and harmony in your creations.

Dear Ones, I hope this words have either
unveiled to you that you are an entrepreneur with special needs in life and love, or if you knew that before, how to meet the right person for your 5th dimensional, awakened love relationship. I hope you are inspired to put all your knowledge and wisdom into action, when you meet the right person to truly bring the Golden Age of Aquarius on the ground of this wonderful world!
Love and Loving Relationships!!!

Harvard Study Unveils What Meditation Literally Does To The Brain

48
Dear Friends,
I totally love it when we have a confirmation by science over the effect of spiritual experiences, so many people share on the planet. The past shows, that it is easier for the human collective to believe in something, when it first found acceptance on a scientific level. So it is with this study from the University of Harvard an the practice of meditation. Hope you enjoy the read and a lovely Sunday!
Love and Blessings
Edith

Numerous studies have indicated the many physiological benefits of meditation, and the latest one comes from Harvard University. An eight week study conducted by Harvard researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) determined that meditation literally rebuilds the brains grey matter in just eight weeks. It’s the very first study to document that meditation produces changes over time in the brain’s grey matter. (1)

“Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day. This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.
Sara Lazar of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and a Harvard Medical School Instructor in Psychology. The study involved taking magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the brain’s of 16 study participants two weeks prior to participating in the study. MRI images of the participants were also taken after the study was completed.

“The analysis of MR images, which focused on areas where meditation-associated differences were seen in earlier studies, found increased grey-matter density in the hippocampus, known to be important for learning and memory, and in structures associated with self-awareness, compassion and introspection.” 6For the study, participants engaged in meditation practices every day for approximately 30 minutes. These practices included focusing on audio recordings for guided meditation, non-judgmental awareness of sensations, feelings and state of mind.
“It is fascinating to see the brain’s plasticity and that, by practicing meditation, we can play an active role in changing the brain and can increase our well-being and quality of life. Other studies in different patient populations have shown that meditation can make significant improvements in a variety of symptoms, and we are now investigating the underlying mechanisms in the brain that facilitate this change.”
Britta Holzel, first author of the paper and a research fellow at MGH and Giessen University in Germany

How To Meditate

A common misconception about meditation is that you have to sit a certain way or do something in particular to achieve the various benefits that it can provide. All you have to do is place yourself in a position that is most comfortable to you. It could be sitting cross legged, lying down in a bed, sitting on a couch etc, it’s your choice.
Another common misconception about meditation is that you have to “try” to empty your mind. One important factor I enjoyed reading from the study mentioned above is that participants were engaged in “non-judgmental awareness of sensations, feelings and state of mind.”  When meditating, you shouldn’t try to “empty” your mind. Instead, try to let your thoughts, feelings and whatever emotions you are feeling at the time flow. Don’t judge them, just let them come and go and be at peace with it.

I also believe that meditation is a state of being/mind more than anything else. I feel that one does not have to sit down for half an hour and “meditate” so to speak in order to reap the benefits of it, or to be engaged in the practice itself.  One can be engaged in meditation while they are on a walk, for example, or the time they have right before they sleep. Throughout the day, one can resist judging their thoughts, letting them flow until they are no more, or just be in a constant state of peace and self awareness. Contrary to popular belief, there is more than one way to meditate.12038470_875606275841513_6742026420207416581_n

“You will have to understand one of the most fundamental things about meditation: that no technique leads to meditation. The old so-called techniques and the new scientific biofeedback techniques are the same as far as meditation is concerned. Meditation is not a byproduct of any technique. Meditation happens beyond mind. No technique can go beyond mind.” – Osho
