Gold Rush

Is it time to buy Gold?

Today is the conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron, which means as we look out from here-Earth- into the plasma entity that surrounds us-which we call the Solar system we see the three planets sharing the same co-ordinate of the Zodiac, the 27th degree of Aquarius.
As I mentioned before this triple conjunction occurs at the same time as Neptune has completed its first orbit of the Solar system since we discovered it. Astrology works on the principles of as above and so below so what we perceive from Earths position reflects back us the quality of the moment we find ourselves in. Neptune was discovered in 1846 that was the era that the consciousness of Neptune awoke in the human species. One element of Neptune is non linear abundance (affluence which means in the flow) the natural flow of energy from the universe that increases energy from nowhere or nothing as we open up to a new level of abundance, accessible through a higher system of energy.

On 24th January 1848 gold was discovered at a mill—think River, think flow.
In 1848-9 the California Gold rush began increasing the population of the state from 14,000 to 100,000 people who came from all over the world in just over a year, then a further 100,000 people the following year, by 1850 California became accepted as a state.
Now, after the Gold was discovered we could say that the Gold existed already on Earth, but it was hidden until that point. Neptune is the ocean and infinite supply of energy that can flows into a system once it is unlocked and opens up to a new higher level of energy and consciousness, Neptune’s discovery corresponded with a whole new level of reality, the planet was already there of course but we had not discovered it, the collective perception in other words expanded to see more.
Today synchronically I received an email from Peter Ragnor suggesting that the only insurance against a global depression is to buy Gold.

Maybe that’s true I understand the logic of the Gold reserve behind banking, but maybe this time is about opening to a new level of inherent abundance, something beyond the economy?

The universe is inherently abundant to a degree beyond our imagination...what abundance awaits us?

Arousing the Heart

The Triple Conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron

Three big waves of energy are seeding the collective ocean of consciousness this year, so grease your boards and swim on out. We will be riding the first wave on 23 May with our Global Activation Day for the Reality Activists.

The Astro Data
The planets Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron form a conjunction, in Aquarius, on 28 May 2009 (exact conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune, Chiron within a few minutes); then again on 10 July and 21 December 2009. This event also coincides with the completion of Neptune’s first orbit since its discovery in 1846.

So what is this energy? Let’s first look at the components which are effectively dancing around each other throughout 2009.

Neptune in Aquarius
Here are some buzz terms for Neptune in Aquarius: Group bonding on different scales, ideology, humanitarianism, idealism, dissolution of boundaries, illusion, love is in the air, spiritualizing, equalizing, new age, group soul, merging of ideas.

Adding Jupiter into the Mix

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, enquiry, adventuring, questing, searching, optimism and abundance. President Barack Obama has Jupiter in Aquarius; so do I, by the way.

Jupiter in Aquarius can be bombastically positive (who me?), espousing a new forward-looking idealism that can incorporate techno-futurism.

The energy of the Jupiter–Neptune conjunction really highlights the progressive nature of Aquarius—the visionary and the Utopian.

The downside of the Jupiter–Neptune conjunction is its transient dreaminess; the deceptive nature of dreams as they fail to fully deliver. However, dreaming lead us beyond where we were, even if its promise is an exaggeration. The truly negative approach to this energy, though, is to play safe, to stay cynical and closed—and then wait to sneer—thereby missing the experience, nourishment and euphoric celebration that enriches and nourishes soulfulness, consciousness, faith, love and compassion.

All sorts of emotions and ideals sweep through a community and through the planet, so we have to ride the waves with some discernment. But hey, don’t get out of the water—that would be like being around in the mid-1960s and missing the party, man!

Now Let’s Add Chiron to the Mix
What really amps up the energy is Chiron’s presence.

Chiron is the integrator—the great attractor that pulls everything together; analogous to the new consciousness of our whole planet waking up to itself as an entity travelling through space (Turquoise Chiron Enchantment). Chiron is the interconnection between all things, and yet is also the crack between those things that lets in the light and keeps the whole system growing, flowing and connecting beyond itself. It is Earth connecting to an ET community.

On a more immediate level, and more pertinent to us now, Chiron creates interconnection within the whole, within society and between different paradigms, mindsets and cultures. Chiron, a planetary body discovered in 1977, rules what Matt Mason, author of The Pirate’s Dilemma, calls ‘the remix’ (the year 1977 saw the birth of punk rock and the growth of hip hop culture).

Chiron also rules the reclaiming of that which has been left behind or disavowed from each of us or from society. Chiron is the maverick and the forgotten, the creatively discordant, the anarchic liberator. Chiron rules ‘the intersection’, as it is termed in The Medici Effect (Frans Johansson). The surfboard–skateboard fusion culture also springs from around 1977 (see the documentary Dogtown & Z-Boys. This film is so punk, so much fun; it must be one of the best documentaries ever. See it for free on Google video or on Now here’s a quote from the film, from surf shop owner Craig Stecyk in 1975, which speaks directly to a Reality Activist: “Two hundred years of American technology has unwittingly created a massive cement playground of unlimited potential. But it was the mind of 11-year olds that could see that potential.”

Chiron, in the mix of the triple conjunction, also speaks of creating a rainbow bridge between the 20th-century ‘real world’, ruled by economics, politics and mainstream-media-mythology-led market forces and the 21st-century online cyber-culture community.

Putting It All Together
So on one hand, we could have a strengthening of online interconnection; on the other hand, it may be dislocated and alienated from the ‘real world’. However, the dominant impulse of this triple conjunction is an awakening of human interconnected energy fields, including a greater occurrence of intersubjectivity, heart-based rapture or telepathy, intoxicating viral marketing, free open source memes, collective emotions and the odd alien-based religious cult.

The triple conjunction—which is the beginning of a cyclical unfolding over the next 13 to 25 years—also encourages a surging of interfaith religion towards a global spiritual platform, ultimately by around 2025. It further suggests a convergence of hope and vision from multiple paradigms under a spiritual umbrella that creates a Utopian drive in humanity. This could bring futuristic technological aspiration and global communication under the domain of a nonsectarian spirituality.

The challenge—or the way the energy is seeking to unfold, with our help and conscious reinforcement—is to go beyond the real world as it stands and to create heavenly firmaments and filaments, gold, pearls, radiance and a lustre of collective abundance, joy, fun, humour and even some outrageous intoxicating promise … and then see if this can be woven back into the real world, so that as much of the treasure as possible benevolently enriches and mutates the system.

With the energy of this conjunction, any safe-bet over-pragmatism is a guaranteed losing hand; whereas the winning hand will have a straight flush of zany exploration.

Humanity needs vision. Humanity needs Utopian vistas so that the adventure continues…

Astro-nerdia for the discerning analyst who wants to follow the energy wave that we are surfing: The Triple Conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron

Neptune was discovered on 24 September 1846, at just under 26 degrees of Aquarius (it was conjunct Saturn at the time).

Neptune returned to the same point in the Zodiac—which means it has completed its first orbit since discovery—in early April 2009 and it will do a final pass over the same degree in February 2010 (it got to 24 degrees of Aquarius in May 2008, before retrograding, so we saw the early vibrations coming in then).

Jupiter passes over this same point in the Zodiac (just under 26 degrees Aquarius) on 19 May 2009, with a final pass on 29 December 2009.

Chiron moves around this Neptune discovery point during most of May 2009 and makes its final pass over this same point in December 2010.

Jupiter and Neptune move into an exact conjunction—in other words, share exactly the same placement—on 28 May 2009, after which there is a retrograde conjunction, on 10 July 2009, and then a final direct-motion meeting on the Winter Solstice, 21 December 2009, exactly three years before ‘the end of time’ in the Mayan calendar.

Chiron will come very close to Jupiter and Neptune during all three conjunctions, effectively creating the triple conjunction.

In astrological terms, the ‘triple conjunction’ means that Jupiter and Neptune will conjunct three times in one year; however, this triple conjunction is a triple conjunction of planets as well.

We Live in the Earth The subject of my talk today at Phusikoi

We live in the Earth not on it
The body is in the soul rather than the soul is in the body
Our body is within our consciousness
Our brain and its chemistry are in our consciousness.
Our movements and our physical experience take place within consciousness
To know the truth of reality on any scale of existence we must see the whole before the parts.
The whole of something is reflected in its energy field
It is the energy between our hands that can give us access to all energy fields.

All of this is true from a slowly emerging new and higher level of consciousness.

This list above is basically what I will be speaking about today at Phusikoi, that and the practice that gave me this awareness.

Life is an Enchantment when it is experienced from a certain level of reality. Although I will not have time today to talk about the actual levels, the certain level I am talking about is a developmental level I call the Chiron Turquoise Enchantment—which is a higher level of awareness than that which emphasizes the objectivity of our five senses and our rational mind.
The emphasis changes, the priority in understanding any system is to see the whole then the parts.
What systems am I talking about?
Here is a holarchy of systems that make up your life experience.

Body tissue
Your organs such as the heart
Your endocrine system
Your whole body

So we can see that the first three are all parts of the body, but the best healing of the body has to be holistic, seeing the body as a whole system.
This is a holarchy because each part is complete unto itself it is a whole, but also it a part of a bigger whole. Reality is made of holons. Holons are whole unto themselves and yet parts of something bigger.

Okay let us continue on up a bit
Your friends
Your local community
Your nation
The whole human species
The whole world and everything of Earth

Each of these is a chaotic system, they might appear random but the new open scientific perspectives understand that each scale of reality has an inherent self organizing intelligence.
As our awareness grows we start to recognize that the totality of each scale of our relationship has a unified quality or flavour, it is a whole with its own inherent intelligence. We recognize a resonance between our friends or our nation which differs somewhat from other people.

We also recognize a similarity between all humans; we all look pretty much the same as compared to the little green men from Mars or the Greys from Zeta Reticulum for that matter.

The next jump in understanding is to realize that the Earth is not merely its physical globe, but comprises its whole energy field, which incorporates the electro magnetic fields as well as other subtle levels.
The Earths consciousness is a field of energy or the Earths field of energy is a direct reflection of its consciousness.
The human species is a unified consciousness and field of energy that exists within the Earths consciousness, which means to a certain extent we are a product from within our planets consciousness.

The awareness of this level of reality—Life’s Enchanting nature—therefore recognizes the symbiosis and unity of subjective and objective reality, but emphasizes the priority of the subjective—consciousness. That does not mean that the parts can not have huge impacts on the whole, highly motivated individuals can instigate revolutions for good or bad in our society. Systems work on feedback.

The implications of this are enormous and suggest a totally new science that is more akin to metaphysics than science as we understand it today. The irony is that the new age movement is fairly cognizant of totality consciousness, energy fields, resonance and such like— albeit in a rather unrefined manner at present. The challenge of a globally interconnected world is to understand its totality, which eventually requires an integration of technology and all human endeavour’s with ecology in our understanding.

Totality awareness on any scale of existence is accessed through that levels energy field, which is not so much about quantum physics more about the relationship of parts and the whole quality—the whole energy reflects its total consciousness.

If we approach systems from parts only perspective we can understand the mechanics of the system but that does not tell us, or more importantly give us a direct experience of that system.

What I discovered is that through a sustained daily practice of playing, manipulating and being open to spontaneity as directed by ones energy or chi you can access the scale of consciousness, the energy field that is resonant with the Earth as a totality.

I leave you with this…technology is co-created with us and born from within the mind of our planet...

Speaking tomorrow at Phusikoi part two of Phusikoi blog

Looking at the Phusikoi membership it strikes me that it is a cool, hip, creative and connected group of people so just joining in the community atmosphere which is promoting conscious living will be enjoyable.

The aspect that really turns me on though is the actual agenda to actively explore the nature of consciousness and reality.

It is to this end that my life has been passionately dedicated to. I propose the answer to this question is that reality is multi-leveled and therefore truth depends upon what level of perception it is viewed from.

Innovation occurs at the intersection of paradigms. The intersection is the point where differing worldview or mindsets attempt to integrate, the same could be said for different cultures, skills or life experiences. A fusion of two or more specialties or modes creates a new and exciting reality.

Speaking tomorrow at Phusikoi I realize that 20 minutes is not long enough to put across a real introduction to my thesis. I call my thesis; alternatively ‘Life is an Enchantment’ or ‘The Enchantments of Life’.

The Enchantments of life is an integration of different paradigms that are not necessarily comfortable with each other. The Enchantments map stands at the intersection of Developmental psychology and Astrology. Developmental Psychology that I follow states that humans evolve, unfold and grow through recognizable stages that are essentially common to all people, furthermore these stages mirror the story of human evolution. The Developmental psychologist that has most influenced me is Dr Clare Graves who worked closely with one of the most famous developmentalists, Abraham Maslow, whose Hierarchy of needs is probably the most accessible developmental model. Here it is...

1 Self Actualization Needs ( full potential)...(in Maslows system this is the top point but Dr Graves genius is in showing that the human system is an open ever unfolding or emergent system.

2 Esteem Needs
(self respect, personal worth, autonomy)

3 Love and Belongingness Needs
(love, friendship, comradeship)

4 Safety Needs
(security; protection from harm)

5 Physiological Needs
(food, sleep, stimulation, activity)

Dr Graves work has been popularized by two of his students whom have developed two different expressions of his original study and both of whom call their work Spiral Dynamics. Further influence for me has been the vast collected works of Integral Philosopher Ken Wilber who on one hand rubbishes Astrology—as is fairly common with academia and in his case alternative academia— and on the other hand works from the same fundamental as me, which is that consciousness is the ground of being. Ken Wilber also uses developmental models including Spiral Dynamics.

Astrology as a paradigm, in general is mostly allied with Jungian Psychology or perhaps Neo Jungian. The Jungian perspective which although it is incredibly deep and enriching is an expression of only one—albeit advanced—developmental stage.

The outstanding contribution of developmental studies is the fact that truth varies depending upon each level, many popular beliefs and mindsets are true to some extent, they have their own validity unto themselves however that does not mean all perceptions and truths are equal. It is not that truth is merely relative, but that as we evolve our truth expands. Our reality gets larger and potentially more encompassing of all that exists within the human psyche.

How did I get into all of this exploration of reality and consciousness?

Although the insatiable need to explore reality has been with me since childhood through adolescence with psychic various phenomenon and telepathy, it really started in earnest as my full time vocation and career 18 years ago. In the early 1990s days it was Astrology and Shamanism that occupied my time. The Shamanism naturally developed into a daily practice of 2 hours or more that utilized sound and chi gong style movement. The nineties led me on a journey into discovering and exploring the energy field through these practices.
It is this journey that I will talk about tomorrow, for it is this experiential and empirical study that has led me to define reality as an enchanting and magical construct. This position does not negate the impulse to integrate science and consciousness. However until there is a shift from—seeing matter as the ground of being—to recognizing consciousness is the fundamental of life, systemic integral science will only produce very limited results.
The Enchantments of life is an innovating world view because it stands at the intersection of not only Astrology and Developmental psychology/sociology but also meets the metaphysical experience of energy—bringing together new systemic understandings of cutting edge systemic sociology, a revolution in astrology with age old wisdom concerning the nature of the human energy field. The sustained experience of my practices has revealed to me that the energy we can all feel between our hands, most commonly referred to as Chi is the bridge or doorway between consciousness and matter. The relative simplicity of this truth empowers the individual to explore reality and consciousness directly and viscerally for themselves.

In early June I will be presenting a workshop The Lightbody

This is an experiential workshop using sound and movement, working with the energy field. I will introduce the energy field as a Holosphere and a body of light.

I will explain how the body is in the soul and how we live in the Earth, not on the Earth, from the Holospheric perspective. Contact me or Grace Chiu.
