Hello Beautiful Soul!
If last month left you emotionally raw, bewildered, ungrounded, and off centre, then October’s Ascension energies offer you the chance to reclaim more balance and inner harmony.
During September we were cracked open to another level of emotional vulnerability, reactivity, trauma and emotional pain, and this caused many to bristle and bang up against each other
Now we move on from the fourth, Heart chakra that we worked with in September to the sixth chakra: the Mind, or Brow Chakra during October. So repressed emotions, wounding, trauma, and inner pain that arose can give way to the opportunity for us to use our minds for personal transmutation and deeper spiritual wisdom.
Personal transmutation is the process of being with uncomfortable/undesirable feelings and experiences while loving yourself. It’s about sitting in our discomfort versus reacting to one’s environment or those around us.
In healing anger, grief and sorrow in this way, we are not easily triggered; we are less reactive and can be more fully present with ourselves and others. We are able to clear the subconscious mind and make space for non-judgement and self-love.
This in turn allows us to not lose ourselves in the past or future, and therefore move in a new, intuitively guided direction. A direction that embraces karmic freedom and a stronger container for deepening connection with our souls.
Transmutation on this level is intense, often has subtle but profound shifts, and requires resilience, commitment and processing time. It is like turning lead into gold. October gives us this opportunity, as we shift into darker, introspective days and the Veil thins, to transmute our trauma. As we do this our wisdom grows and our intuition grows stronger.
The six chakra archetypes of the Sage and Alchemist anchor in this process of metamorphosis, so that we embrace a deeper sense of Oneness, Wholeness and inner divinity.
These two archetypes remind us that we have other ways of knowing. Divine guidance and the voice of the heart are speaking to us if we choose to listen. The Sage restores clear vision by giving us the opportunity to take our discernment and our intuition to a higher level. The Sage assures us that we already know the answer.
The Alchemist gives us the confidence to carry our inner transformation out into the world to create positive change. The Alchemist is showing us that each moment is an opportunity to grow, to show up differently, and to transform and be transformed.
Self-Mastery is ours to own, but first requires us to have right relationship with ourselves. As we do, we repair our outer relationships, and shift into co-creation with each other.
