In This Issue Valentine's Day 2009 Astrology February 2009 Playing with Pendulums Quick Tip for February Ellie's Stuff Hello Everyone,
When Barak Obama became President on January 20, 2009, a new chapter in history began not only for the US, but for all of humanity. It is one of awakening and enlightenment in a New Age.
In that window, I was guided to create an ongoing series of files called Sacred Journeys. In these trying times, that bring forced change for so many, they are subliminally designed to move consciousness into higher understanding and awareness and in so doing allow souls to create comfortable solutions, as old patterns fade away.
We all read the news, now more than ever, to find out what is going on in the world, but the answers are no longer in creating physical paradigms, but something far more pure and evolved in the hologram of our experience here.

Playing with PendulumsPendulums have been around for a while and can easily be purchased in many holistic or metaphysical bookstores. They can be fun and entertaining as one tries to retreive answers to questions posed. It is one of many divination tools.Pendulums can be made of different materials. Some people use a simple necklace with a crystal or charm at the end. Be sure the bob - or weight on the end - is not too light or too heavy. It should weigh less than half an ounce. The best shape for the bob is something that comes to a point. The best length for the pendulum is six inches.Yes or no questions are common in using the pendulum.

Each morning as your consciousness returns to physical reality, and you are still connected to the other side, pause for a moment, keep your eyes closed, try not to move your physical body, and look for a "Message for the Day" from your soul or spirit guides.
That message may come as a single image, whose interpretation you readily understand. It might be a single word or phrase, and be something to ponder during the day, or just simply be a strong feeling.Imagine a seesaw perfectly balanced. On one side is your normal, day-to-day objective consciousness, and the other side is your subconscious. At this wake up time, the "seesaw" is level, balanced, and is the time when messages from one side can reach the other. As your normal day begins, the side of the seesaw with your objective consciousness rises up and is in control, while the subconscious side goes down. The reverse happens while asleep.Understand that the message you receive comes from a place in your subconscious or unconscious that has been working on your issues while you slept. This is not about your dreams. It is just a quick message to help guide you ... the first thought or visual you get as you wake up.It is often helpful to keep a dream journal. Sometimes messages can follow a theme for a while and like pieces of a puzzle, the overall message might be better viewed when grouped together. Do not worry if no messages immediately come, and do not judge today's results against yesterday's. As one brings focused attention to this exercise, the clarity of messages will increase.Before fully awakening and starting your day, express heartfelt gratitude for the messages received as well as all other areas of your life.
