The theme for October is RESET
There are two faces to this month's theme. The first one is the deconstruction, dissolving, taking offline, shutting down, turning off, letting go, letting down, and allowing things to fall apart.
The second is the re-booting, turning on, flipping the switch, restarting, reconstructing, solidifying, bringing online, resetting and refocus.
When the Internet goes down you often have to turn everything off, wait a bit and then turn it back on and reset. The same is true for a computer. When it does not function properly, it helps to quit out of the open programs and then shut it down and restart.
Individually and collectively we are carrying enormous energetic clutter and our psyches are attempting to manage and keep track of all the patterns and paradigms of our lives. We are energetically exhausted by the task. This month there is an opportunity to shut down and reboot the system, clearing out the old files and resetting the energy field in a new way and into a new paradigm.
How do you know it is time to take yourself offline and reset? You may feel overwhelmed and scattered and have difficulty keeping track of things. You may find yourself in a dreamy unfocused state or tending towards a sense of depression and lethargy. You may find it is difficult to get enthusiastic or excited over anything. You could be disorganized and feel you have way too much on your plate, and you probably do. And you will most likely feel deeply fatigued in a way that just a good night of sleep will not quickly fix.
How do you take yourself offline? (Helpful support on the Mp3)
Stop what you are doing and give yourself a break. Surrender to the void where nothing is happening. Let go of all hyper-vigilant tendencies. Put it all down. All of this takes trust that the greater container of your world will not fall apart if you give yourself a break. What will happen is that old patterns and habits will have a chance to dissolve and then be able to reset and reboot in a new way and a new configuration.
For the mind this can be an uncomfortable state, the state of not knowing and the state of not being able to track and focus as it is used to doing. You may find yourself feeling the chaos of the void rather than the peace that "nothing happening" can bring. For some of you it will be important to engage the moving center and take a walk, do some yoga or move the body in some way. Some will truly have to stop and just sit and look out the window with a quiet mind and do nothing. For others it will be occupying the mind with a movie or a good book.
It is important that you allow and support necessary change. There is a death/rebirth quality to the month that demands a deeper commitment to change and resetting the patterns in your life. If you brush this one off, spirit will do it for you. Illness, accident or incapacitation of some kind could find its way into your life forcing you to stop doing business as usual. So get with the program in a proactive way so you can manage your own offline time. Take inventory and observe what is not working anymore so you can decide what needs to dissolve and change in your life. Then allow spirit to be in control of your life so you can reset yourself in greater harmony and balance.
The opportunity this month is to truly reset your life into a higher energetic frequency that will end up giving you much more of the experience you crave. But first you must take yourself offline and shut the computer down so you can clean out all the old files and upgrade the system.
What does the RESET look like?
It will be something new and different in your life. It could make itself obvious in your physical world or it may simply be a huge attitude adjustment where you see the world very differently and that in itself changes everything for you.
You can help this process along by choosing and honoring anything new in your life and by not judging how it may be showing up.
The challenge you face is your own fear and resistance to letting go, letting down, surrender and release. The void can be a scary place that feels like giving up. Remind yourself often that the void is actually the place from which all creativity and possibilities come.
How the month shows up:
It's a great month for personal growth and "coming into your own". Sometimes it is necessary to take a break from yourself in order to reset into a different experience of who you are. An important focus this month will be to take an inventory of all the beliefs and attitudes you have about yourself; what you are capable of, what talents you have, where you are convinced you are flawed, how you think others view or judge you, your limitations, your self-deceptions and anything else that makes up who you are and how you project yourself in the world.
You may be uncomfortable at times but it is important that you give yourself the space to be offline and unavailable for "business as usual". You need to allow change to happen on a deeply foundational level and trusting the process, which may feel like losing control or falling apart. Seek containers that will support you in an energetic way, as much of what is occurring this month is an energetic change.
Some of the deep change and reset this month will be around how you relate to everything in your life. There is an opportunity to experience a profound difference in your relationships not only to others, but also to yourself and all the physical extensions that you use in your daily environment. If you take advantage of this shift in frequency, it will allow you to relate to everything you are connected with in a much more conscious way. The end result will be that you will be in a better position to see spirit more easily in everyone and everything. This will make life much richer in all of your experiences.
There is a need to drop the resistance to what the weather and climate is doing and to be in more acceptance of the changes that are occurring. Weather patterns are no longer predictable and it is time to take the "need to know" offline. The opportunity this month is for creating a new relationship with the environment that is based on cooperation with it rather than a need to know, control and resist. Be delighted with the irregularity and eccentricity of your environment rather in fear or resistance. Make sure all of your plans include enough flexibility to accommodate surprises and anomalies.
This is the first time that we will actually be able to witness the dissolving of the old structures in a very real and tangible way. The inner erosion has been going on for some time but it is now just reaching the point where the outer veneer of the old containers is cracking and exposing the chaos inside. Be patient, be accepting and allow for the shut down and going offline. It is a necessary step to a much needed resetting and rebooting. Collectively, we have all known on some level that the old paradigm patterns that have held our physical experience together on this planet would have to go through a shift and a change and this is part of it.
The lessons will be around a realization of how much we actually don't need the old structures that we thought were essential to life. This is a process, so be patient and accepting and neutral and inspired by what you observe.
Energy levels, the adrenals and the nervous system are all impacted by the theme this month. To every physical aspect there is an energetic counterpart and there has never been a better time than now to work on the energetic part, as it will end up influencing and changing the physical. Watch for fluctuating energy levels and sleep patterns. Be sensitive to your own signals for needing a break and going offline.
This is an excellent month to change your diet, go on a fast, adopt a new exercise routine, clean out your closet and get some new clothes or anything else that promotes a reset and a change. It is also a great time to change the way you do things on the outside to reflect a change in your attitudes and beliefs on the inside.
The economic structure is one of the largest and strongest of the old paradigms that has been ruling our collective container of linear thinking. The way people do business has been changing for some time, and a new paradigm of how economies should function is resetting the pattern at a deep foundational level. At some point in this process the outward manifestation of the old paradigm will need to dissolve and go offline, a process that could create some degree of chaos and be extremely uncomfortable in the reset process.
This change will happen from the inside and will also not happen overnight. It is the task of each person to examine their attitudes about abundance, prosperity, business structures and what they believe to be true about who is in charge and responsible for their well-being. We are moving in the right direction so if you witness the falling apart, know that the reset and re-boot is just around the corner.
With that said, it is a good time to pursue any project, financial investment or partnership that feels right in your heart even if it does not make sense in your mind. Trust the heart and your own intuition, as it will win out in the end.
DATES AND TIME FRAMES
October 1-7: A time of ups and downs and fluctuating energy levels. A time where some things make sense and others do not. You could forget appointments or get something mixed up as your brain is letting go of how it holds your reality. It is best to write important things down so you can still function. Do something this week to reset some aspect of your life and do some cleaning or clearing of something that you know needs to go. Pay attention to synchronicity in your life, a call from someone you were just thinking about or being in the right place at the right time. This is spirit showing you that you don't necessarily need to know and keep track ahead of time. It is OK to let your mind go offline.
October 4: New Moon is at 6:34PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) Even though it may be difficult to focus today and you may change your mind several times about what you are doing or what you wish to do, take some time today to stop everything and just be. Refrain from setting any kind of intentions or making to do lists.
This is a time for allowing at a deep level whatever it is that you need at this time whether it is healing, insight, clarity, rest, community, support, change, inspiration, clearing or movement. Be in the void and find a peaceful place to drop into where everything temporarily comes to a complete stop. From this place receive whatever it is you need. Be in gratitude.
October 8-15: A sorting, sifting, observing, clearing time of insights and shifting. The mantra for this time is "where one door closes another one opens". Move though your disappointments, irritations, expectations, confusion, judgments, resistance and attachments by letting go, letting down and giving into the obvious. Try to be as neutral as possible when your best-laid plans dissolve and spirit shows you a different path. This process is way bigger than your personality and limited thinking can understand. Trust is the operative word. Occupy your doing self with the menial tasks of caring for your environment and cleaning house while there is a much larger and more significant process occurring at a different level.
October 16-22: Squirrely, exciting energy creates a window for creative expression and testing different ways of showing up. Don't be afraid of trying something new during this time. Take a risk if it feels right in your heart. You may be really inspired by the surprising possibilities that show up, or you may feel overwhelmed with the uncertainty of not being able to track things as linearly as you are used to doing. This time requires flexibility in thought, action and emotional attachment. It is also very important to be around those who are on the same page so try and stay away from negativity, conflict and those who do not understand you or who judge you.
October 18: Full moon and partial lunar eclipse is at 5:38 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). This eclipse opens a window until November 3 of a time that supports deep change. The energy of this full moon can be a bit challenging if you are not in alignment with what you need at this time. If you are ignoring your own signals to go offline and reset certain things in your life, this full moon could bring you to your knees. Don't do anything against your better judgment and take some time for reflection and rest.
On the other hand, there is an opportunity for the heightened experience of bliss and well being if you are aligned with spirit. Make sure you are not so scheduled up with obligations around this time that you can actually take advantage and experience what is possible. Be in nature, around beauty, and doing what inspires you.
October 23-31: Follow through with choices based on deep insights and the process of going offline. Your reset may include significant changes in your environment, relationships, work, and future plans. Accept the choices that others are making based on their own needs for resetting. Since we are in the window between the 2 eclipses, there is much support for movement and the anchoring of new ways and a new path. It may even show up for some of you as an actual physical move of location. Always be inspired by what is happening regardless of how inconvenient it may seem.
Humor will be a great relief and support this month. So laugh, cry, fall apart, be a basket case, turn into a puddle, give up, give in, listen to your heart, change the game and rise up from your own ashes reset and reborn.
Have a great month!
