She has Returned

Wow – summed up so beautifully it made me cry! Hallelujah and let’s move forward with forgiveness, peace and LOVE 🙂

Tribe of Dreams

The very first time I heard Bernie Sanders speak, I knew who he was

knew the energy he was representing

knew that he was being fed from the same wellspring of evolving consciousness by which so many of us have been being fed lately on this planet.

This wellspring offers the energy of community

fellowship

kinship

unity

wellness.

It offers the energy of equality

equanimity

truth

justice.

It offers the energy of love.

In a civilization that values profit about all else

this energy becomes revolutionary

but it is not by nature.

By nature, this energy is evolutionary.

There is only so long that we can continue to stumble blindly upon the Earth

eating her up faster than she can feed us

and creating so much suffering for ourselves, our kin in the community of life, and our future generations.

So it is not only unsurprising,

but also necessary

Third Eye, Blind?

As Human Beings, we have access to 3 ways of knowing – Logic, Knowingness & Intuition. Logic is the way that we have been conditioned to know something i.e. if you can prove it, it must be so. We are very familiar with this kind of thinking as it is the Scientific Method. We have a question, which we then form a hypothesis, then set out to prove it is true or it is false. This is a valid way of knowing something, but it is not the only way!

I saw a meme on FB this morning about the band, Third Eye Blind; only it was written Third Eye, Blind. That got me to thinking about what that phrase meant, which then got me to thinking about Human Design….of course 🙂

This is a valid way of knowing something, but it is not the only way!
 
Logic in Human Design, btw, is all about the recognition of patterns and the ability to predict what will happen based on that pattern. It is a+ b = c  kind of thinking. Every morning I see that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West – a pattern is established, and so it is a known thing. (God help us if the Sun started setting in the East and rising in the West – I giggle thinking about how that would go over in the world 🙂 ) … but I digress
 
What about the ways of “knowing” that our ancestors used, before the scientific revolution? Knowingness or instinct/intuition… Are they any less valid? Or … did our Western way or our more Modern life create a situation of our becoming, “Third Eye Blind?”
 
Well, let’s take a look at the other two ways we have of tapping into information – and, we all have these three ways of knowing available to us…but based on your Human Design you may be predisposed to rely more heavily on one.
 
Knowingness in Human Design is another way we have of tapping into the information super highway. It is pure and simple, “I don’t know how I know what I know, but I just know.” Have you ever experienced this? This is what I like to call Body Wisdom as it has it roots in the physical being, and it is quite possible that it is wisdom carried into this lifetime from your DNA and/or through past life recall. It is fascinating!
 
I have experienced this kind of knowing as I suddenly (after 911 and around my mid-life crisis point at age 41) realized that I knew astrology. I cannot explain to you with any “logic” how this knowledge showed up in my life – it was simply, I don’t know how I know what I know, but I KNOW. Imagine me trying to explain that to family 🙂 “Oh, btw family, I’m now going to stop being an Optician and become an Astrologer.” 🙂 Some members understood, and others thought I had lost my mind!
 
My point is this – knowingness is ancient, unverifiable, yet definitely something we all have access to, as it is in our Human Design!
 
The third way of knowing is Intuition / Instinct. Some of you may wonder what the difference is between Knowingness & Intuition. There is definitely a difference. Intuition is powerful, instinctive and comes in the moment. It is primal, protective, and creates an action point for us to respond to. Knowingness is a little less “qualifiable” and as such is very Neptunian (can’t pin down a source).
 
In Human Design, however, intuition comes from the Spleen, which is a center for Time, Intuition and Survival. Intuition speaks to you loudly in the moment, and if you choose to listen you find yourself in the right place at the right time with the right people. But, if you don’t listen and get into your mind and try to talk yourself out of what your intuition is telling you, just the opposite can happen. You miss out on the synchronistic meeting with someone, you get lost, or find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.
 
So, don’t be Third Eye Blind! Understand that you as a Human Being are tuned in to the world in more ways than just Logic! Sometimes you have to go with your gut, or just affirm that what you know is Truth!
