the will resists

THE WILL RESISTS (Week 47)

ALARM continues to ring out frantically as Donald Trump prepares to make his mark on the world. It is increasingly clear that the heartlessness of fascism is upon us again, and that this time around, our capacity for war and destruction is greater than it’s ever been.

So many different issues are in jeopardy, including our fragile environment, existing peace agreements, basic human rights, the rounding up of 3 million people for deportation, women’s rights, and the ‘normalization’ of white supremacy groups such as the KKK.

Even the most optimistic people sense that the future does not look hopeful. However, as this terrifying reality continues to sink in, humanity is experiencing a powerful emotional response – and this is a healthy thing.

Everywhere we look, the Will of the many is controlled by the few. Oppression and cruelty have reached such lows around the world that humanity’s WILL has been shaken to the point where it is starting to realize – finally – it must RESIST its own destruction.

Your Will is the part of you that FEELS. It is the part of you that instinctively resists any efforts to harm you and yours. Your instincts, senses, and urges, are part of the Will’s profound structure. The survival instinct is on full alert. Resistance starts within – with the power of your feelings.

If you do not know how to identify your WILL, you are likely to feel it very strongly now. Week 47 is an 11 Week in this 11th Month of this 9 Year, and whenever 9 and 11 combine, there is always an emphasis on the Will.

There is something else going on in this week’s 11 11 and 9 11 mixture, that may help us understand what is happening on a larger scale. 11 represents ILLUMINATION and INSPIRATION – and as we move towards the end of this 9 year of endings, the lights of reality are more switched-on than ever. The 2 energy of the 2000s represents TRANSPARENCY and OPENNESS.

In this light, we can see people as they really are. And we can be seen for who WE are too. People are being themselves. Even when people are putting on an act, the act can be seen. And it’s happening to everyone.

unknownThe fact that Trump chose Breitbart’s Steve Bannon as his Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor, is frightening, but what he said in an interview at Trump Tower this week with Hollywood Reporter, showed a side of him that he could not help but show. He was being himself. Bannon said: “Darkness is good. Dick Cheney, Darth Vader, Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”

In the transparency of 2, we can see people as they are – and what they are doing – almost like a cartoon ‘lightning-strike’ which, for a brief moment, reveals the person’s true identity. But this is not a matter of judging others. It’s a matter of clarity and being more aware. Besides, we are more able to see the good in people too, and grasp the fact that NO ONE is “perfect”.

We cannot move forward – evolve – until the WILL of the people MOVES to save itself, and resists this latest fascist force with every ounce of its power. WILL POWER. However, we can only do that by understanding the true nature of the Will, and educating ourselves with (instead of distracting ourselves from) the DETAILS of what we are dealing with in the outer world.

It is important to understand that will-power is not our ability to “think positively” or ‘will’ things into being with the power of our minds. Will-power is our ability to feel – honestly – and will things into being with the power of our desire. But we have been conditioned to believe that desire is somehow ‘wrong’. This really depends on whether the desire has any love in it. But desire in itself is vibration, movement, feeling, life.

This week’s 11 11 energy gives us the master number 22. (2+2=4)

Week 47 adds up to the karmic number 13. (1+3=4)

So we have 4 that is derived from the Master Number 22, and 4 that is derived from the Karmic Number 13 – in the 7th week of a 10 week cycle in which all the Week numbers begin with 4.

That’s a lot of 4 energy – the number of order and system, success through hard work, attention to detail, restriction, obstruction, identifying problems, seeking solutions, dedication, effort, and breakthrough.

Naturally, the feeling that anything could happen at any moment will continue for a long time to come. And things will happen – we know this. Alternating sensations of apprehension and enthusiasm are common in this energy, and are often experienced simultaneously. 2016 continues to be a time of shock and surprise because it is a 9 Year – the number of conclusion and deep emotions. 9 is the number of tolerance – which denotes how much pressure we are able to endure. Tolerance is therefore an important form of resistance.

We are meant to be feeling on this level, at this precise time because we are developing our emotional power and our ability to feel and sense our way through difficult and unusual situations. And each of us has an ability to assist, protect, facilitate, and raise awareness in others. Week 47 brings an influx of insight and information which can help us find effective ways to resist the current threats.

In the process, we are gaining a deeper understanding of guilt so that we can release ourselves from it. The system runs on guilt, blame, and shame – all of which are forms of judgment. Remember that guilt is NOT an emotion. Guilt slows evolution down because it stops emotion (feminine energy) from expressing itself as it needs to. Expression is what propels us forward. This is why FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION must be protected with all our might.

Guilt prevents the ever-expanding openness that Free Will is meant to be. Don’t mistake guilt for love.  Guilt judges harshly and seeks punishment. Love simply loves and seeks healing.

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE (week 46)

We are all evolving into something we have yet to become, but because we are afraid of our own potential – afraid of our own power – we tend to resist this change, consciously and subconsciously. This helps us justify our desire to run back to times when we felt more sure of ourselves. It is often tempting to retreat and  go backwards rather than actually change.

We will evolve anyway because we are moving through TIME, which is the numeric framework on which all movement occurs. Time is a far more vital and multi-dimensional force than most people realize. In the course of time, we are learning the difference between what needs to be feared because it can do great harm, and what does not need to be feared because it has no basis for alarm.

“A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” ~John A. Shedd, “Salt from My Attic”, 1928.

Fear will always hold us back if we do not understand its power and purpose in the vast emotional range. So we have to find the courage to FACE our fears: to move through them, and learn as we go, instead of pushing them into denial and opting for what appears to be the “safest” (but often weakest) way out.

The more we deny fear when it arises, the more we attract situations that will force us to face our fears. We are not meant to be “fearless”. As evolving beings, we are meant to learn how to process fear in a way that provides intelligence, not paralysis. What we are experiencing now is providing valuable lessons in this regard.

Week 46 began on Friday, 11 11 2016, and because 2016 is a 9 Year, the 11 11 phenomenon will be with us for the entire month. (See link at end of page to my short piece on 11 11 2016).

Week 47 (next week) begins on November 18th which is an 11 day – in an 11 week – in this 11th month. This gives us 11 11 11 – and the master number 33. It will be interesting to see what happens in the established financial and corporate world throughout November, and particularly on November 18 – (and November 21, which also holds triple-11 energy). But that’s next week back to the present…..

Week 46 is a “10/1” week (new beginnings), and as this 9 year of endings merges with the 10/1 energy of the decade, and the incoming 10/1 energy of 2017, we find ourselves at the beginning of an enormous unpredictable turning point – personally, nationally, and  globally.

This week’s 10 10 10 energy brings forward #30 – which represents the power of COMMUNICATION, the stage, the airways and internet, the arts, entertainment, illusions, and outer appearances. 3 provides the platform to get the message across. Our perception of what is being communicated is extremely important now.

3 is also the number of HAPPINESS and OPTIMISM, and this is a good time to recognize and appreciate what you already have. Be aware of how you yourself are communicating and try not to get caught up in gossip and rumor. 3 also encourages you to check the facts instead of taking what you are told for granted.

Thursday, November 17, 2016 (11+8+9=28=10=1) adds another component of 10, and we have 10 10 10 10 = 40. This reminds us that we are currently traveling a 10-week cycle in which all the Week Numbers begin with 4 – the number of both restriction and breakthrough, effort and laziness, order and chaos, detail and vagueness, and our very sense of identity as individuals, nations, and cultures. 4 helps us to ORGANIZE, and inspires the qualities of dedication, staying power, and efficiency.

10 is such a powerful number as we continue to evolve from the 1000s to the 2000s. The 10 energy takes us to NEW LEVELS, and there is no doubt that a new level of urgency prevails since the election of Donald Trump. This very visible descent into fascism must not be trivialized and “normalized”. Its foundations have been laid – it IS happening – and we do have to accept that fact. Already, the new American administration is being embraced by fascist organizations in Europe and around the world.

Fascism is also a form of terror, which is why so many people are terrified of what may lay ahead. Denying that you are afraid will weaken you because you will have to block out large areas of reality from your consciousness. Accepting that your various fears exist, and being determined to move through them anyway will strengthen you and also help you to keep yourself safe. That is how we will evolve emotionally. Emotion is feminine energy, which, first and foremost, is what is under attack here.

“I pray he surrounds himself with decent people.”  ~Richard Branson

As I write this, the Trump administration just announced that he will immediately undo the Dodd-Frank financial regulations which were put in place after the 2008 banking crisis and signed into law by President Obama. With a Republican Congress cheering him on, there is little to stop him succeeding with this. The last time the republicans held all branches of government was in 1928 – followed the very next year by the Wall Street Crash of 1929 – and then the Great Depression which lasted for 10 years.

The Crash of ’29 occurred on October 29, 1929. This was in Week 44 (the most balanced form of 8), the number of finance, incorporation, and power in the material world)… it is also the presidential number of Barack Obama.

29 adds up to 11 – and there are two 29s in this date. This 11 11 event affected the whole world, and was instrumental in the rise of fascism in Germany. As foreign investors withdrew their interests there, millions were thrown out of work, and several major banks collapsed. Hitler was able to use the despair of the people to gain support for the nazi (nationalist) party by promising to repeal various laws, boost the economy, and provide more jobs. The rise of nationalism led to World War 2 (nation against nation), at a time when Germany was already under much criticism for its treatment of prisoners-of-war from World War 1. At the same time, the crash in the USA enabled the Fascist Party, founded by Benito Mussolini, to tighten its grip on Italy.

The crash of ’29 actually began on October 24, 1929 (1+6+3) which was a 10/1 day in the world. This is a piece of history we can truly learn from in this 10/1 week and 10/1 decade. It is not enough to look at what is happening today and think that we are informed. Many Americans have no idea what fascism actually is because they have never experienced it. Furthermore, the meaning of the word “fascist” has been devalued over the years as people increasingly used it to describe anyone with opposing political views.

Fascism is not mere political ideology. Fascism, nationalism, authoritarianism, nazi-ism, call it what you will, is total control of the people by government, which itself is controlled by the interests of the few, not the many, and is always headed by a bully, dictator, ‘strongman’. We are experiencing the ‘winner-takes-all’ corporatization of government, cloaked by vague promises of “freedom” and “wonderful times ahead”, along with a flood of conspiracy theories to keep the population emotionally ‘charged’ against opposition – it is “divide and conquer” in the extreme.

“We must stand up defiantly to any dark or divisive acts, and look out for the most vulnerable among us.” ~George Takei

The old system is cracking down hard on the human WILL which is made of emotional energy – the feminine principles of life – which all men and women possess, just as all men and women possess masculine energy – spirit – light. But when light does not have any love in it, the world has a crisis on its hands.

11This is why 11 is such an important number. The number of illumination. The two 1’s hold the potential of connection, acceptance, and peace. They also hold the potential of two opposing sides constantly resisting each other. A closer look at 11 reveals what is in the space between those two 1s – the gap that divides humanity and pits 1 against 1, individual against individual, past against future, right against left – IMPASSE.

The space reserved for middle ground is filled instead with the suppressed suffering of generations – and indifference to that suffering, all of which is here again in the PRESENT. The concept of the ‘master race’ – white supremacy – has raised its ugly head once more. Eventually peace is restored because the alternative is self-destruction. But war never ends. There are no winners. It will happen again and again – until we learn to do things differently.

We cannot know exactly how this will play itself out, or what interventions may occur, if any. As the old ways of the fast-paced electrical masculine 1000s race against the slowness of the magnetic feminine 2000s, it is impossible to keep up with it all. But it is that very slowness in 2 which gives us the depth of vision needed to start building new foundations that are not merely repeats of the past but are based on love and equality, rather than hate, and the abuse of power.

If you are angry, express your anger outwardly. Don’t hold onto it and let it morph into rage. But do remember that your emotions are not weapons. There is no reason to hurt yourself or anyone else in the process of emotional healing. Your feelings are your Will, and are your best means of understanding your reality – in-depth – and not merely at the surface level.

Because the situation is so urgent, we have to find a way to process our emotions as fully as possible – and plan for the future at the same time. In fact, our feminine feelings and our masculine minds MUST work together now in order to be effective. THAT is what it means to be whole. THAT is the potential we are so afraid of.

It is not enough to say, “ok go ahead and grieve but be quick about it”. That will not help to bring new ideas into the mind but, rather perpetuate the old mindset which brought us to this massive turning point. We cannot ‘come together’ to accept fascism. We have to ‘come together’ within ourselves first – the coming together of mind and emotion. Inner connection. Self acceptance.

To do this, we must understand more of how the feminine emotions work within the biological body, and how the masculine mind opposes emotion because it only wants to think – and not have its thoughts interrupted by feelings. But without the input that the feelings offer, the mind cannot learn anything new and cannot come up with anything original (repeated history).

Fascism will be resisted. It always is. But knowing the true nature of what we are up against is paramount. We can learn a lot from people who have resisted this energy in other countries, but because times have changed, we also have to learn as we go. We must give ourselves the time and space to STUDY the situation more fully if we are to approach it ‘differently’ and effectively.

We are still in the 9 Year of 2016 – which takes the shape of a spiral. Just like being on a spiral staircase, we cannot see what is around the corner. The election of Donald Trump caught the world by surprise and the shockwaves are vibrating strongly. However, this is also triggering 2’s evolutionary qualities of intuition and receptiveness, and a desire for new and deeper understanding.

We move ever-forward in the course of time, and we cannot allow ourselves to be pulled back to a time that no longer exists. But we do need to give ourselves time and space in which to think and feel for ourselves. November is a 2 month (11+9=2+0=2) – the number of patience, cooperation, detail, slowness, perception, kindness, nurture, sense, sensitivity, the senses, intuition, and behind the scenes activity.

We can change outer realities all we want, but if nothing moves inside, the old situation will keep coming back. The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

That’s what all this 10 energy is about – real and meaningful change – innovation – originality – the next level – NEW beginnings.

It all begins within.

Ring the bells that still can ring,  forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in. ~Leonard Cohen. September 21, 1934 – November 10, 2016

11 11

11 11 2016

11 11 in 2016 adds up to 31 (11+11+9), and 31 adds up to 4.

We are also in a 10 week cycle in which all the Week Numbers begin with 4. And a man who was born on the 4 Destiny Path has just become President Elect of the United States.

This is scaring a lot of people throughout the world – as it should. There is no doubt that difficult times lay ahead. 4 is restrictive energy which can hold us back and box us in until its lessons are learned. The natural emotions of fear and frustration arise as a result. There is a very serious tone to this vibration.

4 is the number of system, work, how things work, and all things work-related, including jobs and the ‘cost of living’. 4 thrives on effort, determination, precision, and efficiency. 4 also signifies the vital INNER work which will bring peace into this world. Until our masculine minds make peace with our feminine feelings, outer repression will only grow. Everything starts within and generates outwardly. 4 is also the number of breakthrough.

4’s karmic vibration, 13, is associated with overwork, carelessness with essential details, laziness, and ill-preparedness, which we often mistake for being “unlucky”. There are major lessons for us all to learn from karmic 13. And because 11 ILLUMINATES and INSPIRES, it helps us to focus on – or at least search for – what we most need to see and understand.

11+11 gives us 4’s Master vibration, 22. The 22/4 vibration focuses on the conditions in which large groups of people live, and in the right hands, 22 brings measurable improvement – to the many rather than the few. In the wrong hands, however, 22/4 brings chaos to the many, (and the few as well).

We need to look at this date in its entirety because the information it contains does change each year. Without this understanding, we can slip through the cracks of this ‘road of opportunity’ without truly understanding what the opportunity was. 11 11 2016 is ‘big picture’ energy, and provides essential context and depth – if we open ourselves to it.

Awareness is our greatest safety net.

ENDINGS WITHIN ENDINGS (week 45)

 

Not only is this  Week 45 of 2016, it is also the week in which the United States chooses its 45th president.

4+5 = 9, and Week 45 is the final 9 Week in this turbulent 9 Year of 2016.

9 is the number of drama and deep emotions. The number of spirals and endings. And this week, we get spirals within spirals, and endings within endings.

“The most authentic endings are the ones which are already revolving towards another beginning.”~Sam Shepard, (born in Week 45, November 5, 1943)

The last time we experienced Week 45 in a 9 year, (which, like 2016, was also a leap year), was in 1980, when Ronald Reagan became the 40th president of the USA. This established the decade of the 80s as a high-energy era in which so many safeguards and regulations were repealed – the banks were given even more power – and greed and materialism were ‘normalized’.

“I been laid off from work, my rent is due  //  My kids all need brand new shoes  //  So I went to the bank to see what they could do  //  They said son – looks like bad luck got a hold on you….  //  Money’s too tight to mention..”  ~Written by The Valentine Brothers in 1982 and recorded by Simply Red in 1985.

8 is the number of POWER in the material world, and it was during the 1980s that the whole concept of ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ entered mainstream consciousness as “a fact of life”, rather than the great imbalance that it was, and still is. But time has moved forward, and we are now in the decade of the masculine 10s in the millennium of the feminine 2000s – and another major shift is imminent.

4 = system, order, work, how things work, precision, detail, and the LOGICAL MIND.

5 = change, freedom, resourcefulness, adventure, sex, and the PHYSICAL BODY.

9 = conclusions, drama, the end of an era, letting go, and DEEP FEELINGS.

Week 45 runs from November 4th – 10th, and is the 6th week of a 10 week cycle in which all the Week Numbers begin with 4 – the number of both restriction and breakthrough.

The USA is in a 2 National Year and a 4 month. Both 2 and 4 thrive on ACCURATE DETAIL, and have a way of making us look at ourselves, and each other, more honestly. And because the entire world is affected by this election, and many other countries are going through their own Clinton/Trump-like situations, we are all going through the evolutionary process of facing our own reflections and interpreting reality – realistically.

HINDSIGHT IS 20/20

The human journey is reaching a crescendo, not only because Week 45 is the last 9 Week in this 9 Year, but also because 2016 is the last 9 Year before the great numeric turning point of 2020. The 10/1 energy of the current decade gives us alternating glimpses (visions) of what could be if we continue in the same old disproportionate way – or – make a vital shift towards equality, fairness, justice, and BALANCE.

People are trapped in history, and history is trapped in them. ~James Baldwin

We do not look deeply enough into the details of our present reality. We do not use THE PAST as the learning experience it is meant to be. So, although we can see the end result, we remain unaware of what led to it. Without this understanding, history has no choice but to repeat itself.

HexahedronLife moves forever forward, and when we do not move with it, we become compressed, stuck, and helpless. 4 is symbolized by the box or square, and the feeling of being ‘boxed in’ and spun around has been prevalent during this long 10 week cycle.

All the ‘positive thinking’ in the world cannot find solutions to problems we deny having. Consequently, denial of reality is the biggest problem we face on Earth today. Resistance to change is also denial. The system of the male driven 1000s is battling the feminine 2000s with every ounce of its remaining power. The war on women is real and dangerous.

And yet, feminine energy (which all men and women possess) is rising regardless. Feminine energy is our ability to feel, empathize, relate, and express ourselves honestly. The honesty that comes with the 2 energy is driving a spear of reality into our current system, which runs on dishonesty. Consequently, blatant lies can no longer go unnoticed. Humanity’s awareness is increasing rapidly as our emotional energy insists on truth.

The circumstances of this DOUBLE 9 WEEK remind us that the age of patriarchy and male dominance is in a downward spiral as time continues its journey into the 2000s. 9 enables us to let go of the past so that we can move forward – and the only way to let go of the past is to FORGIVE. This may turn out to be the hardest lesson of all because to forgive repression while it is still going on, without entering into the classic “Stockholm Syndrome“, seems all but impossible. And yet, the fact remains that forgiveness is the very definition of letting go.

Meanwhile, we are traveling a section of the human journey in which the ‘old school’ are desperately trying to alter our perception of reality. The impunity with which blatant lies are being spewed into the collective psyche is truly staggering. They obviously believe wholeheartedly that the ‘masses’ are stupid and will believe anything you say if you just keep repeating it.

911119EMERGENCE OR EMERGENCY?

Although 11/11 (November 11) does not occur until the first day of Week 46 (a 10 week in this 10 decade), the first occurrence of 11/11 this month comes on November 9, which is an 11 day in this 11th month. (11+9+9=29=11).

November 9th is formatted as 11/9 in the USA, but for the rest of the world, it is 9 November, or 9/11.

Historically, 9/11 and 11/9 have enormous significance, including the onset of World War 2, the fall of the Berlin Wall and with it, communism, and of course, the 9/11 attacks which destroyed the biggest symbol of 11 in the world – the Twin Towers in New York, (just a few examples).

Keep in mind that 11+11 adds up to 22. The USA is in a 22/4 day on November 9 – the day after the election. The master Number 11 illuminates reality so that we can see what we’re dealing with, and at the same time provides the connection between the 1000s and the 2000s. What appears to be the simplest of equations, 1+1=2, is actually a complex and vital set of numbers – which provides basic understanding. 22 focuses on the conditions in which large groups of people are experiencing life.

Our true INTENT – what is in our hearts – will drive this massive change, and the choice is what it has always been – between LOVE and HATE.
