Stepping Stone #2 (Path/Alchemy)
Path Alchemy Stepping Stone 2
April 1, 2020
I know that many of us are still out in the world working in hospitals, care facilities, grocery stores, pharmacies, public utilities, etc. I am deeply grateful for all of you who are making it possible for many of us to shelter in one place and lower the curve of the covid-19 virus. If we could all spend at least 5 minutes daily visualizing beautiful healing light around all our community, I cannot express how helpful that is to us all.
During this year we will explore the Power of Intention. Lynn MacTaggart has spent decades of her life doing research on the Power of Intention. Her recent book, “The Power of Eight” is a culmination of years of work and research. She has documented dozens of experiments that show clearly how powerful our intention is (also known as prayer).
Just a reminder, whatever your attention is on IS your intention. We need to practice mindful intention at this time. Divinity is clearly saying, grace period is over, suit up and show up! Let me be clear, Divinity did not create this virus, humanity did. It is a manifestation of fear, anger, hatred, judgement, and shame. Our job is to irradiate all of that and transform our world view to Compassion, Love, Joy, Gratitude, Peace, Serenity, Grace, Beauty and so much more.
For us to “Be the Change” we want to see in the world we must be mindful. Mindfulness is being present, and it is more. It is being present and aware of what you are thinking, feeling, saying and doing. It is recognizing when we are acting out of fear or shame or anger or any of the emotional frequencies that only add to the problem. When you have created an intention to live in a higher vibrational frequency you get to witness how often your energy drops into fear, anger, judgement or shame. This realization can be difficult; however, it is critically necessary for our shift to happen. The key here is to have compassion for yourself and others as we clean out our mental, emotional and physical closets. When was the last time we really focused our attention on what no longer serves our highest selves?
While we are in the process of the clearing out process or the releasing, letting go, forgiving and surrendering part of the Lotus Life expansion, we get to take a look at our tools. Anyone who works with tools, and my guess is that is all of us, knows how important it is to have good ones; tools that are taken care of and maintained. What we are not aware of yet is that we have all been using defensive tools, like judgment. Let me say here that discernment and judgement are two-way different perceptions. Judgement is coming from a perception that something or someone is better or less. Another way to put it is, someone wins, and someone loses. We can replace judgement with practicing discernment. When we do, our perception is, “What part is mine?” “What will serve the highest good of all?” Just this shift moves us all into a huge paradigm shift where we can create the world we want. Of course, the same is true when we get into anger or fear or shame. All these emotions are destructive to our self-esteem, our relationships and our creative impulse. Having said that, we are going to feel all of them, we all are. The difference is, we get to be mindful of where they are coming from, our thoughts, our triggers, our past, our shame. This is our moment to listen. Listen with compassion, we will discover that many of our fears are connected to shame. Shame is when we believe that we are bad, wrong, not enough, not lovable, not deserving and not worthy of anything good beautiful or Divine. Wow, that is harsh. Because we have all been in this 3-D world for some time, we all carry shame. We have a fear-based and a shame-based world. Now is the time we get to shift. Before we can live our lives as the beautiful Super Soul Hero that we truly are, we need to get rid of the lead that holds us down, that lead is the fear and shame we carry.
Some of us have been doing this work for decades now, and what I have discovered is that I can witness myself today with so much more compassion and honesty on a daily basis than I did in the first few years I began my evolution. For those of you who feel like you are just beginning, the process is much faster and can be much easier because you are in a group of mindful participants.
IN your packet, and if you do not have a packet you can download the packet from the Retreat Connection Library on my website. https://www.vickiclough.com/ If you need the password it is 2020.
- Pull out the scale of vibrational frequencies done by David Hawkins (Document name is 07 Power vs Force. Put it in a place that you can check in to see what your home frequency is. Where do you spend most of your time? What is the energy you are feeling and sending out into the world? What is the energy or feeling you want? Creating intention is essential.
This is where our Archetypal Wheels can assist us in the change we want to see, feel and create. Your wheel is your personal fractal. A fractal is a repetitive pattern. I believe we are all fractals of Divinity, each of us has our own pattern, texture and combination of colors that weave together to create the tapestry of humanity. I will share more on this a bit later. Your wheel is a Divine Road map. It will reveal every part of your life and the opportunities that are available to you. Each house represents a piece of your life and all the pieces are represented in the wheel. The archetypes you have selected make up your personality and how you take yourself into your relationships, work, families, spirituality, well every part of your world. Your wheel is a Divination tool; it is a mirror of yourself. Learning to read Archetype is a process, but you were wired for it before you arrived on Earth, so be patient as you awaken the skill to see and read and relate symbolically. And, connect with your groups! Connection and Communion with other evolutionary spiritual beings is also an essential part of our plan.
When you get your birth wheel cast and posted in the WIX app, you can also put a picture of it on our Messenger if you want to. We are all going to begin with your Victim Archetype. Read about the Victim; look for both the light and shadow aspects of this archetype. For some, when in shadow Victim, we become small, sad or whinny; some get angry and some get manipulative or some vindictive. These are just a few examples of shadow Victim. In “Sacred Contracts”, by Carolyn Myss, you can read about the Victim; also, there are several websites where you can find additional information. Archetypes have been studied for generations. There is a vast library of information to assist you in discovering how your shadow Victim shows up in your thoughts, your feelings and your actions.
Also, take some time to read about the House where your Victim sits. Every House has a definition. Your wheel is an astrological wheel. Astrology has been a science in our world for centuries. If you visit any ancient site around the world you will find that the study of the stars is evident.
Then bring the Archetype and House together. Example: My Victim is in my 4th House which is Home. First and foremost, I Am my Home. The center of who I am is in my home. How I see myself and how I am seen originates with my home, myself. It is my 3rd Chakra, my solar plexus. Then it becomes the home I live in and the energy and frequency I create where I live and love and rest and reside. Earlier in my life I spent a good deal of time in my shadow Victim until I realized through a moment of Divine Intervention that I was the one I was looking for. I had a moment that altered the course of my life when I chose to be accountable and responsible for myself, regardless of what was going on outside of my heart. I became mindful of my thoughts, feelings and actions. That is the thumb print of the light Victim. I want you to go deeper and really write and share. Find out what the story is that you tell yourself and others when you are in that shadow Victim. “Write it down and share it. When you do that, it will never have the ability to jump up and get you unconsciously. That is the beginning of freedom. That is when you get to change the story and changing the story is changing your life.”
Write in your journal as you explore and share with your group. Our connections are critical to our evolution and discovery. Our willingness to be honest and vulnerable is our opportunity.
You are going to explore and study the axis of the Victim. The axis is the house the victim is in and the house directly across from it. In my wheel my victim is in my 4th house, so the 10th house of Highest Potential is the other side of the wheel. In my 10th house I have Saboteur, which is another of the Survival Archetypes.
I asked you to cast your Kairos or Action wheel as well. Your Question is to discover what you need to know to awaken, develop and expand your Super Soul Hero. Take time to really discover the Shadow Villain Victim and how it shows up in your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Also, how it shows up in the house it sits in. My Victim shows up differently in my Home than it would if it was in any other house.
The archetype that is in the axis across from the Victim also influences your Victim. Find out how it does. Look for the light side; really spend some time with this one. How can you Be and live and share the light side of your Victim? What does that look like and feel like? What is the light side of the axis archetype? Do your research, ask questions, connect with your group. As you share and discover, you are teaching others. We are activating a Universal Law of Giving and Receiving. Be generous with your discoveries and the time you have. Find out what the story is that you tell yourself and others when you are in that shadow Victim. Again: “Write it down and share it. When you do that, it will never have the ability to jump up and get you unconsciously. That is the beginning of freedom. That is when you get to change the story and changing the story is changing your life.”
The Kairos (Action) wheel will tell you the action you need to bring into your life to live in the light side. Journal, journal, journal. Share, share, share.
Let’s take a week and see where we are. The next Archetype will be the Saboteur. Please spend the entire week witnessing your Victim and shifting into the light side. Have some fun and play with it. If we need more time, that’s ok too!
For those who want to start reading. I suggest you begin with “The Four Agreements” and “The Fifth Agreement” by Don Miguel Ruiz. These will be essential tools as we navigate our paradigm shift. I will be giving you assignments to practice these as well.
The other two books we will be discussing in the next two months are, “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra and “Many Lives Many Masters” by Brian Weiss. If you have read these books before, please read them again. This time do one chapter a week and practice mindfully. I read these books every year at this time. Every year for the past 20 years I must laugh because I feel like I am reading then for the first time. As we expand our neural pathways, what we perceive changes.
I want to thank you for choosing to play with me. I am deeply grateful for your willingness and your courage. Let’s have some fun!!
Love, Light and Blessings
