Turning the Tide
- SOLARA'S SURF REPORT FOR JUNE 2006. Cheers! Mark
Turning the Tide
During the final days of May, a noticeable Turning Point was reached. The
clouds parted and revealed a bright, shining sun. We had almost forgotten
how beautiful the sun could be....
2006 has been a full and challenging year so far. It's been similar to
traversing a minefield; we have to be fully conscious with each step. We
simply can't do things in the old ways anymore. There has been a continuous
procession of elements, people, tasks, responsibilities, attitudes and
perceptions leaving our lives.
For the past few months, many of us have been going through the Fires of
Initiation. This hasn't been easy at times, but it has been extremely
effective. The drawbridges of the past and of our old ways of being have
burned to a crisp and no longer exist. There is no going back to the "Way
Things Used To Be". NO DOWN- NO RETURN has intensified.
No matter how busy we have been, we have continually been thrown back on
ourselves. Most of us have had to deal with the issues before us by
ourselves. There has been a constant sorting out of the people around us
based on issues of integrity and values. We have learned what kind of
energies we can't be around anymore and what qualities we most value.
We have also experienced a parade of people from earlier in this lifetime
or from further back in our past lives returning for that final round of
completion. Each time this happens, it gives us another petal on our Lotus
and makes us more whole and free.
Our beings are becoming much truer. We are more stripped down and real than
ever before. All of this must happen before we are able to launch ourselves
fully into the New. This is why there have been so many birthing pains to
bring forth the New. Very little has effortlessly glided into position,
even those things which feel so right.
In fact, the elements which feel the most important have been the ones most
delayed. No matter how hard we tried, they simply didn't fall into place
like we so fervently wanted them to. It hasn't been a matter of rightness;
we unquestionably know that they are right. It's just that the conditions
haven't been ready for them to manifest.
WE ARE THE TURNERS OF THE TIDE
It's important to understand that we can't passively wait for the
conditions to change. This will not happen on its own. It is our
responsibility to create the new conditions so they can happen. However, we
don't create the proper conditions by running around trying to force things
to happen; rather, we do it by changing our inner selves to a new level and
then bringing this through to our outer environment.
The first four months of this year emphasized inner transformation. In May,
we finally started to apply the deep core level changes we have been
experiencing all year to our outer lives. This will continue throughout
June with promising results. The more we incorporate our true selves into
our everyday lives, the more our needs will be met and our lives will
transform into what we really want. Now that the Tides are Turning,
emphasis has moved to transforming the outer. This will be in effect for
the rest of the year.
During the last week of May, we could suddenly see a path of shining
stepping stones before us. Although the entire path is not yet fully
delineated, we can at least see some steps in front of us. If we follow
these stepping stones, they will lead us to where we most want to go. We
need to walk with openness and sureness. Placing our feet only on the
stones which will bring us true nourishment. They aren't that difficult to
find because they have a totally different energy than the elements that
are leaving us. There is a feeling of support rather than heaviness. There
is a sense of newness and joy.
THE LOTUS WORLD
All year long we have been in the midst of a process of deep self cleaning
and purification. This is touching all levels of our beings. Much of this
is caused by our approach to the next 11:11 Activation, the opening of 8th
Gate which heralds our entrance into the Lotus World, the realm of purest
Lotuses constantly clean themselves and their environment and this is
exactly what we are learning to do. This is why many of us are being called
to clean up our living spaces, not just the usual tidying up, but by an in
depth going through of the hidden corners and neglected places within and
without. This is done efficiently with a lack of resistance or struggle. We
are finding and clearing out the skeletons in our closets, washing the
windows, getting rid of more piles of old stuff, then painting, rearranging
and recalibrating everything until it shines with newness. Each time that
our inner beings move to a new level, we need to reset and recalibrate the
energetic fields of our immediate environment.
NO DOWN - NO RETURN
The deeper we enter the Lotus World, the more we discover that we can no
longer live in the realm of drama. This includes drama that is caused
either by us or by others. This drama free world is part of NO DOWN - NO
RETURN. It is a world without gossip, without manipulation, without
innuendo, without emotional distortion.
We need to release any old misunderstandings and perceived slights that we
are still holding onto. Otherwise we will get stuck in the black hole of
endless processing which merely feeds the distortion and becomes a net that
entraps us. We are not victims; that is one of the illusions of duality
that must be let go of right now. Holding onto old hurts simply keeps us
small and keeps us hooked into duality.
Forgive anyone whom you feel harmed you. Forgive yourself. Let it all go
and turn your attention back on your own self and onto embodying your full
potential. This is a critical time when we are all greatly needed in our
full presence. Let's stop looking backwards and stop giving our energy away
to any distortion or drama. NO DOWN - NO RETURN.
Throughout June, there will be occasional disturbances caused by patches of
Choppy Surf which stir up the sediment of our beings and bring everything
up to to surface, often in a distorted and magnified manner. This is when
there are sudden misunderstandings that are blown up way out of proportion.
When this happens, we need to watch that we don't get drawn into thinking
that they are real, because they are not....
Some of the larger waves of the Choppy Surf will feel like a cannonball has
suddenly been thrown into a still pool. It will knock everything out of
balance and create huge waves. Even though we might be temporarily knocked
over by the waves, it will be surprisingly easy to pick ourselves up and
restore equilibrium. These disturbances act much like earthquakes, bringing
sudden, unexpected energetic shifts that are greatly needed. And there will
also be actual physical earthquakes to do this as well.
Most of the month we will feel quite positive, with an underlying sense of
excitement that something amazing is about to happen, although there will
be times when we are struck with a feeling of rising anxiety. This happens
whenever we remember that we are traveling on a rapidly melting iceberg
that is floating out to sea. There is no need to panic, although we could
all come up with several logical reasons to do so. Our melting iceberg is
necessary to get us to our new places.
June will be a busy month full of activity. It will take our focused effort
to further complete the old and move into the New. Often it will feel as if
we were traveling through a birth canal with that sense of concentrated
pressure and the need to push through any perceived obstacles. If we give
it our all, we will be astounded at the progress we have made by the end of
And even though there is much to accomplish, we will still experience
moments when the fog of inertia rolls in upon us and brings all activity to
an immediate halt. Inertia is still fulfilling a purpose so we might as
well accept it for now.
The best stance is to follow the path of clearest energy and do what we are
able to do. Often, these are not the tasks which we consider our highest
priority. They are not our obvious next step. But here they are, standing
right in front of us. Two examples from my life are:
1. I was getting ready to finally go to the beach and rummaging through my
bathing suits when I discovered a cockroach nest in my drawer. Suddenly my
priorities shifted and the entire drawer was emptied and thoroughly
scrubbed, all the bathing suits were washed and my beach trip was
postponed. It felt really good to discover this energy that I hadn't known
existed and clear it from my bedroom.
2. I was writing a Surf Update when I heard a large crash from another part
of my house. Obviously, my cat had knocked something over. Instead of
running to see what it was, I finished the Update. Then I discovered that a
fountain had been knocked over in the entry hall which was now totally
flooded. It took me over an hour to remove all the furniture and mop up the
floor. But now my entry hall is shining with the cleanest floor in the
THE WINDS OF CHANGE
Part of June's Turning of the Tides is a major loosening. This frees up
many elements which have long been stuck. Once the resolutions finally
arrive, we will be amazed at how natural they feel. We will realize that we
have found the perfect resolutions and that they were worth waiting for.
The Winds of Change are blowing again, sweeping away the old and bringing
in the New. The Winds of Change will bring in some strong bursts of
positive energy. Around mid month they will intensify and that's when we'll
experience major breakthroughs. The Winds of Change will create a Quantum
Surf. Everything will accelerate. There will be some surprisingly changes
coming into our lives. Some of these might be in the BIG THREE categories
of Relationships, Careers & Residence.
Many of us have a yearning to break free of the past and our old limiting
behaviors once and for all. We are ready to embrace the New, if only we
knew how to get there. People who have long been hermits are longing for
companionship and love while those who have been surrounded by people are
yearning for some time by themselves. Many of us feel ready to unite with
our One True Loves, if only we knew where they were. (This is a natural
occurrence once we go deeper into the Lotus World.) We are ready for new,
more fulfilling careers. We want to move to our rightful place. We want to
be fully supported on all levels.
The Tides are going to Turn in June. More stepping stones will be revealed.
New connections and new opportunities will appear when we least expect
them. No matter what, remain open and open hearted. Be spontaneous. Don't
make small choices, for they will only lead you into a dead end. Allow the
Winds of Change to reset your internal compass and perhaps you just might
find yourself led to a wondrous new direction.
IN THE HEART OF THE LOTUS,
