Our personal egos do not always reflect the reality of our soul/spirit.
“What is good is perfect, and what is called bad is just as perfect.”—Walt Whitman
As consciousness expands, we increasingly recognize the “divine” in everything. Then we realize that there’s really no need for conflict which only makes us weak and unhappy anyway. Many life experiences bring us opportunities to deeply integrate these truths; that is my view anyway, but the ego-self thrives on disagreements and conflicts and victimization is just another ego-trip that is self-sabotaging. It may not be a bad day to whisper a sincere prayer or higher mind intention, affirming that you will be assisted and guided to the highest expression of yourself today.
How do we sabotage ourselves through disagreements and conflicts? Today’s cosmic broadcast brings a message inspired by the 5 of Wands (rods) in tarot. When we want to “blame” others and feel victimized it weakens our inner strength. Being drawn to engage in open conflict with others or the outer world on any level and believing this is the only way to approach a situation speaks to our own shortcomings. Engaging in conflict and elevating behavior with another is really a reflection of our own inability to know how to communicate with others.
The whole feeling with today’s divination message is one that can be likened to narcissism in a way–acting from an egoic or personality level rather than from the higher mind and the wisdom-self.
Lower-mind views of life can be quite narcissistic (it’s all about ME) while the higher mind views people, events, circumstances from a more objective stance. Higher mind is more inclusive such as in being able to see things from a wider perspective including the rights of others and what is best for “all concerned” rather than just the little self.
And the little mind or lower mind is extremely manipulative and sometimes this is in a very passive aggressive way. Conflict happens in very undermining and underhanded ways as well. Of course, it is all an avoidance posturing no matter which way you cut it—an avoidance to take self-responsibility that is coming from the wisdom center of the self and not the victim place within us.
The energy that is being addressed in today’s divination relates to the archetypical energy of Saturn in Leo. Yes, right now transiting Saturn is retrograde in Libra and there’s a lot of relationship drama happening for the purposes of people being able to see themselves from a completely different place. In other words, people are really getting clear about their own patterns and yes even faults if you want to call it that, god forbid. We are seeing ourselves in ways that we’ve never considered before and egos are getting bruised left and right these days. “Me? Are you talking about ‘me’? I’m not really like that, am I?” We are seeing ourselves through the eyes of others and it can really shake us to our core, but if we can be honest and take it in and work with it, we end up being much better humans as well as helping the soul to evolve.
Does it have to be dramatic and gut-wrenching? Not at all, as long as we can remain objective. Of course, ego wants no part of that since its always sure it’s right and everyone else is wrong. The 5 of Wands (Rod) relates to Saturn in Leo like I said. Saturn represents, archetypically, the boundary of consciousness—the boundary between the individual conscious mind and other levels of mind. And Leo, of course, is overly subjective (all about me) many times and wants that adoration from the world and expects it actually. At least that’s one interpretation of the Leo archetype. In any way that our survival and well-being are perceived to be threatened, the ego will choose the battle but in doing so reveals its own weakness.
Today’s message is about creating the space in consciousness in order for a wider, newer,
healthier viewpoint to take hold. That’s called having spiritual tenacity.
Any perceived outer conflict that is occurring in life now should be taken within or examined with the higher mind.
One’s inner conflict out-pictures in the outer world. Perhaps to accept this or consider this can help and then the motivation comes to resolve inner conflict through spiritual tenacity.
Center through breath and remember that Walt Whitman’s quote: “What is good is perfect, and what is called bad is just as perfect.” Trust divine order; keep breathing, and smile—no matter what! And do your very best to get your ego (Leo) out-of-the-way as you let go of control (Saturn).
PS—Saturn in Leo type energy relates to today’s message and interestingly enough, today’s transiting Moon is also in the sign of Leo. So emotionally (Moon energy), this seems to be a timely message for today. Suggestion: ask to be shown how you can call a truce and work agreeably with others
