June 12: Numerology of today’s date

Image

Numerology of today’s date: 6 (doubled is) 12 (plus one is) 13

This world is a blueprint for a spiritual order. When we can draw down the Alef into the world, through Torah study, prayer, or expanded consciousness, we can inhabit this world as it truly is, which is an ongoing singular dialogue between the G-dly point within us and G-d the totality of all there is.

In Torah study we accomplish this by connecting to the world of Beriyah, a gateway between the physical world and the world of Oneness. In Torah study the faculties of the heart, mind and soul (and body, through physical observance) are utilized and uplifted in the striving for Ayin, or that which lies beyond separation.

In prayer, we are reminded that there is always a rope into the experience of separation that guides the way from our present situation to the higher awareness we are to gain from working through it. This is also the gateway to miracles which draw down the infinite light into the natural order through the same pathways of creation, the Exodus and the future redemption.

In expanded consciousness, acquired through meditation, alone-ment (making oneself alone with God), or given as a gift of grace, the present plane of existence, Asiyah, merges with the highest plane of existence, Atzilut, as the Yiddish phrase teaches: Atzilus iz oych do – Atzilus is here too. From the perspective of Ein Sof, there is no difference between the higher realms and this realm; they are all refractions of light. When our awareness is expanded, we see the light instead of the shadow in every situation, and we are both liberated from time and space and empowered to reveal the infinite nature of time and space.

613 is the number of mitzvot in the Torah. The mitzvot (biblical commandments) are a system to merge the worlds of Asiyah and Atzilut. Only through the physical engagement with the world can we draw the light into the furthest of places. When the realms collapse, the mitzvot are no longer necessary, and this is the relationship between Mashiach, Judaism and Christianity. In some views, the mitzvot become an optional system to “play” with the divine energies contained in the physical world, and to continue to extract delight from the merging of physical and spiritual. When physical and spiritual are truly one continuum, all of a person’s actions become mitzvot.

Saturn and the Hidden Light of the Moon

Saturn teaches us the ultimate message hidden in the duality illusion of creation: that which appears to us as obstacle is none but super-condensed light, which when approached in a detached manner, holds the secret doorway to our true evolution. Saturn and its transits can thus catapult us to entirely new levels in our journey, so long as we leave behind the blueprints we came with and ride the waves of what seem initially to be disappointments, setbacks or insurmountable obstacles. 

Where Saturn’s new position in Scorpio falls in your chart can shed light on what area it may be necessary to withdraw and take an eagle’s eye view, as the universe may be cloaking a new path in guises that our lower selves perceives as discomfort. This discomfort however serves to erode the parts of ourselves that are unnecessary in the stretches that life ahead. Saturn is the ultimate planner and architect, he cuts no corners, and takes his time sculpting the being that we are becoming. 

The key to coping with a Saturn transit is to connect with the divine feminine within, the source of endless compassion, i.e. to cut yourself some major slack. This is hidden in the zodiacal opposition between Capricorn and Cancer, Saturn and the moon. In Kabbalah, we learn that God himself, in all his glory and perfection, makes a sin-offering every month to express his regret and pain so to speak at the primordial decision the diminish the moon in relation to the sun, to create darkness or the illusion thereof along with light. When we discern the light in the darkness, we make amends for God and restore the original impulse and ultimate truth behind all creation and all perceived smallness, which is that there is no place devoid of God. Thus the planets that give us the gift of hide-and-seek lead us into the deepest stores of light, those which were hidden for our souls alone underneath all the layers that hold back even the most esteemed souls.

Yom Kippur practices for all

On Yom Kippur it is customary to fast from sunset on the 25th through nightfall on the 26th. Unlike other fasts, on Yom Kippur we fast because we are like the angels.

I would also recommend reading the ten psalms:

10 Psalms recited every day which assures that one’s soul will find one’s true destined pathway without being interfered with or side-tracked by other people, the negative influences of klipot.

The essence of Tikkun Klali is that one is looking for one’s true destined pathway, asking for guidance to be in the right place with the right destined soul mate, livelihood and true purpose in life.

Of course what matters is what’s on the inside but these practices help open up the gateway available on this day insofar as we are enmeshed in physicality and distracted.

Astrologically the 26th this year is a powerful chart, there’s a grand air trine between Mercury, Jupiter and the moon, which could facilitate prophecy, messages from guides, and intuitiveness as well as mental powers. In terms of current events there is also a Pluto in Cap – Sun in Libra – Uranus in Aries t-square which feels explosive and unstable to me. Secretive power plays, pretensions of justice, and hasty action for a brief window on this day…

To all fasting have an easy fast and may you all be inscribed in the book of life!

On this day we are cleansed of all iniquity and at the exit of the holiday we begin again pure.

New moon Virgo and Rosh Hashanah

20120914-151556.jpg

The new moon in Virgo on Saturday night bathes us in the light of the unblemished divinity within us once more before we enter the chamber of Libra. We are given the gift of understanding that everything emanates from the point of singularity, and then we are asked to create a more perfect world beginning with ourselves.

The new moon will be squaring Jupiter in Gemini and the mind may have to surrender again to the mesmerizing wisdom of the heart. Ultimately the heart will lead the brave journey of constructing the bridge to connect the rational and supra-rational realms, a grand project taking place within us to heal the millennia-old tear between the parts of the divine mind that lie in exile. The chaos we may sense within and outside are ultimately part of the process of reconnecting parts of ourselves and of God that were sawed apart when we were banished from Eden. The reality we feel when we encounter puzzle pieces that do not fit together both in ourselves and in the world is a result of the fact that we are still becoming acquainted with the glue that can mend the pieces together. This magical mechanism that binds together that which seems to our senses as disparate will reveal itself when we come to a situation is a position of humility, the essence of prayer. Nothing in us need be subdued when we stand before God, we must take in only the vastness of that which we are standing before and truly give that which we stand before the benefit of no limits, the benefit of the unknown, of surprise, of complete upheaval for the sake of complete resolution, of complete trust, only because we are turning to the Creator of trust. There are basic truths we can cultivate throughout the process to guide us even when the thread guiding us disappears momentarily:

We are loved
We are being guided
We are sought out by the greatest force in the universe
We are part of something as we are
We are at our essence God
God desires our innermost essence incessantly and desperately
New levels of love is the glue between that which appears disparate

When we believe in the beauty of this universe and all it has yet to reveal us, we stand in awe and thereby create the grid for all there is to be shown. As it says in the Talmud: “If only…a person could pray all day long.” When our basic orientation towards life is one of prayer, of total openness to the miraculous, of humble stepping into the moment and all that it may become, when we find the seat of our soul that knows the wondrous Father and Mother with us in every moment and seeks to build our lives with them, with both love of their deep intimacy with us and awe of how they lie beyond our grasp, if only to allow even more of their gifts to pour down, we step into the new age in which we are co-creators, not from our own egos but from our innate membership to the Creative Force, where our identities aren’t lost but found in the original, unitary and endlessly multifaceted and intricate and Whole being of which we are all part.

The new Kabbalistic year of 5773 begins on Sunday night. The numerology of the year teaches:

תהא שנת גן עדן

May this be a Year when we re-enter the Garden of Eden.

With all the changes occurring in the world, we are deeply in need of a path that can lift us up individually and collectively to a state above the good and evil that pervades. This is the path of the true mystic, of she who sees the true source and spark of divinity in everything, through the divine Mother that speaks within. Once we redeem the non-otherness of that which we witness, all that has become convoluted through our perception and the refracted light of this realm realigns, because the deepest desire of all that has been set in motion is to find its place in the whole through the aid of the conscious shamanic observer who carries the stamp of the divine in her every glance, inclination, utterance and step. The sanctuary of the holy city will be constructed from many such yearlings to rectify and step into the new age in unison in a grand spiral circle dance, each doing their part and coordinated from above.

May it be a year of Great Delight,
תהא שנת עונג גדול

Rosh Chodesh Shvat & Aqauarius New Moon

This Wednesday marks the beginning of the Jewish lunar month of Shvat (kicking off with an Aquarius new moon). The holiday of the month of Shvat is Tu Bishvat at the full moon. On Tu Bishvat the effect of winter rains begins to be felt, and the sap–lifeforce–begins to ascend from the earth into the trunk and branches of the trees. New fruit begins to appear at the tips of the branches, thus beginning a New Year of Trees. Read more @ inner.org

On a deeper level, Shvat also represents an opening to the Tree of Life, our primordial destiny of everlasting vitality and wisdom:

Along the river, on either bank, will grow every kind of fruit tree with leaves that never wither and fruit that never fails; they will bear new fruit every month, because this water comes from the sanctuary. And their fruit will be good to eat and the leaves medicinal. (Ezekiel 47:12)
In Kabbalah, the Tree of Life represents the blueprint of creation, replicated in the Godhead, the Human Being, the creative process and all of the natural world. Every phenomenon is rooted in infinite divinity, and branches out to encopmass the Divine qualities of wisdom and understanding, expansiveness and contraction, delight, intuition and beauty, endurance and submission, foundation and revelation.
Zohar, Radiance, of this expanse brilliantly illumines the garden, and the Tree of Life stands in the middle of the garden, its branches covering all those forms, trees, and spices in worthy garments. Beneath it all beasts of the field find shade, and all brids of the sky dwell beneath those brances.

Zohar, radiance! Fruit of the tree provides life to all, existing foreever and ever. The Other Side (Evil) does not abide there–only the side of holiness. Happy is the share of those who taste it, existing forever and ever! 
Source: Zohar Shemot, from The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, Volume Four, p. 4
The New Moon in Aquarius represents a time for new beginnings sychronized with our connection to the Whole. All real change begins with the awareness that our true self is already aligned with the change, that perfection exists on a different plane, and we are merely opening and allowing it to manifest below in our lives. The mystery of rebirth in nature that begins in these next few weeks reawakens us to the eternal seeds within our consciousness and within the earth, that no matter how much our reality has been encumbered by limitation, we remember the way back to the Tree of Life, and are ready to claim it as our destiny.
A good week, and a good month to all!  שבוע טוב וחודש טוב
Namaste,
Ayala

11.11.11 11:11 is a whole lot of oneness

What exactly is opening on 11.11.11? My take is that a porthole to unity consciousness has been birthing in the past year or so, reaching its final stretch in July/August of 2010 through these past few weeks, when all energies have been off the charts. I want to clarify that this doesn’t mean that if you haven’t been feeling blissed out 24/7 you are not on the wave or that all this is a load of crap. The idea of birthing is that every pang of anguish and terror gives way to ever new dimensions of enlightenment and peace, which are etched into universal consciousness by virtue of your extraction powers. The cycles of descent and ascent in these days and weeks are downloading the highest-ever frequencies known to humanity and all its saints. The very flashes of unity into which We are tapping and relishing know only the motion of perpetual ascension and work to sweeten everything that preceded them with the Souce of all–infinite Love which brought everything into being and to which all pines. We are double agents, but our true alleigance is to that which we are made of, to that which we are no more than an extension of, to that which Authored our life and shard every moment of exasperation, delight, and tumult. To the place in which all equalizes into oneness, which is the leaping pad for everything to sprout into All that it is. We are nearing days in which language will laugh at itself and reveal that it too is in service of Unity. We are coming home, to our true home, where 1 is the only number, and where 1 gives birth to 11, in which Unity is a vessel for greater unity, Unity that is conscious of itself and therefore even more whole than when it began. This is our journey, all experiences are pouring into the rectification and rebirth of every particle of our beings.

SO excited to be with You on this journey; please do not hesitate to be in touch.

With outpouring love for You,

Leila

October 28th 2011 and the Culmination of the Mayan Calendar in Astrology

Today (Friday) is the first day of the dawning of unity consciousness that has never been experienced before–not even by the Divine itself. The awareness that will unfold in the coming moments, hours, days, weeks, months and years is the culmination of all of human history and the very purpose of Creation. Let’s take a look at the chart for this momentous day (noon, 28 October 2011, Jerusalem):

A few comments on the chart:

1) Neptune and Chiron in 1st first house: If this was a person’s chart, I would say that this person’s identity will be excavated only through deep processes of spiritual healing, in which spiritual growth accelerates healing and vice versa, throughout life, while all the time amassing robustness of personality and self-knowledge, even though they may be delayed until the fruits of healing blossom. This person’s sense of self in this sense would be almost retrospective, realizing who they have become, only in light of how far they have come, while the needle-point of their personality in this moment will be a sort of blind spot, hidden by the burden of soul demands and healing processes churning deep within almost incessantly. Since we are talking about a global scale, and not just an individual person, we may say that the changes which are going to be taking place during this time may happen with an initial lack of self-consciousness, in the sense that they may whisk us away into new modes of being without our even realizing the massive tidal waves of change taking place within and without. It’s almost as if the news will be reporting that a new dawn has broken, but it will be in the guise of normalcy, such that only if we painstakingly compare one moment to the next we will realize the magnitude of what is taking place. This comparing however, is altogether unneccessary, as the level of self-consciousness that we are used to having of events and change is miniscule compared to the awareness that is being birthed through the changes that are unfolding. In other words, it may be better if we do not take diligent notes of what is happening, because the ‘we’ that is taking these notes is exactly what is dissolving into purer form. We will not lose our individuality, in the same way that a person with Neptune and Chiron in the 1st does not lose themselves; rather, the reigns are given over to the deeper, wiser and eternal forces that stimulate expansion and healing. The fact that Chiron is in Pisces only accentuates the fogginess that will be felt, but the guideline is the same: there is a light that is strong enough to shine in this fog, and that is what we are looking for, rather than try to make our dim lights try to penetrate that which is more refined, we keep our eyes out for the rays that carry the vibration of all that we are yearning for and all that we have been promised for eternity.

2) Neptune and Chiron opposite Mars in Leo in the 7th house: Counter to the sense of losing ourself in foggy, confused, amorphous anticipation is a strong, direct and bold desire to exert ourselves and be seen, to shine in our glory and to move forward with precision and selfhood. Could these two impulses be any more opposed? Not really. Moreover, they are both aggravated by an incessant probing energy, seeking to go deeper and deeper into every conflict, tension and potential minefield, by the Mercury-Venus-Moon stellium in Scorpio (10th house). Deep emotional and mental probing, questioning and circling, a loss of a limited sense of self in the onset of higher dimensions of being and becoming, and a persistent desire to be seen, accepted and loved for all that we are–these make up the heated T-square of the day. The answer to balancing these energies may life in the realms of creativity and grounding, embodied by Taurus in the 4th house of home, and Gemini in the 5th house of creativity and children. Strive to be like a child, give up trying to take notes and keep track, be who you are in the moment with less censorship, and let the processes carry themselves out. You may find that traditional, biologically-evolutionary linked activities such as cooking, cleaning, putting things in their place, marking territory, and gathering with your tribe, are comforting and reassuring. Just be sure to let your streak of individuality reign free in all that you do. This will be your breath of fresh air, in every moment.

3) Saturn in Libra may be what saves the day, exerting an all-too-necessary force of restraint and balance on these pressure points in the chart. Everything is being weighed and accounted for, everything is finding its place — parts of ourselves within, parts of our lives, nations across the world, and all the words themselves. While our instinct may be to accelerate all forces of healing and probe to the depths and salvage all that we can, there is a force in the background that is ever-present and ever-aware of the natural place of all things, of the perfection of being that vibrates calmly and radiates balance and harmony. Because of this, all of our busy-bee running around may be necessary to prove to ourselves that something is happening…but once we realize and affirm the newness of what is becoming, then everything may in fact become quite calm. Almost like a two-year-old having a tantrum; the moment they realize that they are seen, they can revert to carefree joy and content as if nothing had ever ticked them in the first place. Find your pillars and stability and stillness–these as always will be precious footholds on the mountain stretching up to the heavens before you.

Blessings on your journey,

Ayala
