2015 – the Year of the Goat

It is auspicious for me that we go into this new year on the emergence of the Super Moon in Aquarius. As I was driving through the city streets this morning, dropping my Beloved to work, I was suddenly struck by what felt like a surge in positive energy through the CBD. I have not felt that for a long time. Though the streets were grey and dark from the looming storms brewing, I was suddenly struck with what felt like a genuine and profound shift – a glimpse of positivity with the vibe from the environment around me suddenly upbeat where before it had been dank, and lifeless. The wet roads, pedestrians rushing to get out of the rain, the shimmer of the sunlight hitting the wet pavements even in the concrete jungle there appears to have developed a kind of rhythm from uncertainty; chaos being the new shade of charcoal; getting on with it and an overall sense of acceptance having moved through fear – an interesting read of the energy around me as people were getting about their business of an early morning on a Wednesday. It was only when I returned home, I realised that this energy shift appears to coincide with the beginning of a new Super Moon in Aquarius occurring on the new Lunar Cycle for the Chinese New Year.

I have been following Chinese astrology since I was around 7 or 8 years old. Though I was already very familiar with the Sun Signs, popular as they are in the West, I have always felt deeply drawn to the wisdom of the ancient Lunar calendar which is what the Chinese Zodiac represents. So much more accurate in terms of its insight with its 12 signs and five elements than the simplicity of the 12 Sun Signs so familiar in the West, the subtleties of the Chinese Zodiac for me have always been far more aligned to the sensitivities of my humanness. On my journey into understanding more deeply who I am, I have started to unravel the nature of this mystery and that is simply that all Priestesses are aligned with the aspects of the Earth and of course the Moon and her influence has been profoundly powerful on that which shapes the Earth.

This year is the 32nd year of the Green Wooden Ram/Goat and is typically represented as a the period of a passing Summer: a period of prosperity and wellbeing and the year is described as “The Creative Side of the Wooden Ram; it’s diligence applied to hard work ensures prosperity”  – leaving little doubt about the impact this year has for all of us on a global perspective. We have earned it … the world has been through the Universe’s ‘chaos theory’ and a time for peace, calm and prosperity is welcomed! It is said that the Wooden Goat where the sheer chaos of years past on a global perspective begins to wane, heralding a new beginning in more ways than one. In other words, 2015 is a pivotal year for calm, peace and hope for humanity. This is probably one of the most powerful signs we’ve had in terms of planetary alignment for peace to prosper and this is the nature of the Wooden Goat – and a year where we all have a reasonable chance to change the world for the better! And it is said that all conflicts that have built up through 2012-2014 will likely come to a close now. Heralded as the end of an Epoch – and my what a mighty, bloody and violent Epoch this has been! Where we have been forced to encounter our shadow time and time again. Each and every manifestation of the shadow being more ugly and sinister than the last. The Yin to our Yang – the dark against the light; the Masculine and the Feminine DEMANDING that we move forward in balance. This, then could possibly be a good thing. This is how I move to accept what is going on in the world more readily: an understanding that everything has its purpose and this is how I reach compassion. Understanding that everything that occurs is in our highest good, though that may not always be evident to us as mere mortals. Love comes in many forms.

2015 is an 8 year which is a year that heralds wisdom, fortune and prosperity. Viewed as the ultimate ‘lucky’ number (my favourite number which also happens to be significant in my numerology chart), in ancient times the 8 also referred to eternity and is somewhat of a portal, so I see this year playing out as an opportunity to be a portal or entry into another kind of reality – the kind see have said we always wanted, but haven’t yet seen the opportunity to emerge. This could be the year that sees humanity turn significantly towards the Light. Certainly the energies support this shift which is in effect right now. While there are those who have awoken to spearhead and ground this new energy coming through, there are those who are not destined to awaken at this time too. The Yin to our Yang. Either way, we are journeying into a new reality that will ultimately see a collaborative, empowered and compassionate world taking shape regardless of our state of wakefulness. I feel privileged to be alive at this time on Earth.
The significance of the Goat is that it has the power to make something from nothing. It is the nurturer: kind and sensitive. It is compassion and understanding. But rather than the tranquil year one assumes follows those qualities, this is a year that heralds great opportunity for change and reform, supported by this profound planetary alignment and naturally, this brings in turbulence of its own kind. Prudence, therefore is critical. Being sensible about risks, taking appropriate precautions. Remaining alert, but not alarmed. While there is a potential to enjoy great abundance, there is also the potential to experience severe losses with a great deal of political turmoil and social upheaval as well as extreme weather becoming the norm. But we are getting used to this, are we not? Like those I saw walking the streets this morning, we are starting to move into a level of awareness and general wisdom around acceptance of this new existence. We can feel comforted that everything that has gone on before now serves us and prepares us for the energy 2015 brings through.

The Akashic Records

What are they?

Life on earth can be extremely challenging. Sometimes we feel we have come to a point on our Path where we perceive we are at a cross roads. We feel we are needing direction, validation and sometimes healing. We feel the need to be heard by the Universe, or feel a base disconnection with our true selves and at a loss with how to move forward in our lives. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Those are the two questions I am asked most often. The Akashic Records are a beautiful spiritual modality that has the profound ability to facilitate a reconnection and has been used back into antiquity to help people understand themselves and their connection to the “all that is” – Divine Consciousness. And to that end, they are sacred.

In ancient times, the Akasha was referred to often meaning sky, space or aether and is a term derived from Sanskrit. A sacred resource, the Akashic Records are available to all who seek them regardless of belief or religious affiliation and are filled with a profound wisdom and inspiration that can be a catalyst to profound life changes. They are known in every spiritual tradition and are deeply supportive, allowing you to access guidance to make the shift from self-reliance to Divine reliance allowing more ease and grace in your life. I think of them as a soul-level spiritual resource, a soul-ar repository that is ever changing enabling us to have a more conscious relationship with our own soul. A blessing that is made available to use so that we can embrace our reality in this incarnation and enjoy the best that life has to offer.


The Akashic Records are described as containing all knowledge of human experience and all experiences as well as the history of the cosmos written in the very aether, or fabric of existence. Metaphorically they exist on a non-physical plane described as a library and are referred to in the Bible as the ‘Book of Life’ (Psalm 69:28; Revelations 21:27) and the Hall of Records. They appear in Islamic and Jewish scriptures as well as the Hindu Philosophy of Samkhya, Buddhist writings and the Tibetan Scrolls.The famous Edgar Cayce is renown for extraordinary accuracy with all of his work in the Akashic Records which revealed some major predictions all of which turned out to be correct except for only two. He referred to the Akashic Records as the “Hall of the Records”.Once given the record, Cayce had the ability to select the information which would be most capable of assisting the individual at that time in his or her life. Frequently, a reading might suggest that only a selection of the available material was being provided, but that the individual was being given that which would be “most helpful and hopeful.” Additional insights were frequently provided in subsequent readings once an individual had attempted to work with and apply the information which had been given previously.

As a means of perhaps alluding to the fact that the Akashic Records were not simply a transcription of the past but included the present, the future, and certain probabilities as well, in reading 304-5, Cayce began the reading with a curious statement.

When discussing the Book of Life, he stated it that it was “The record of God, of thee, thy soul within and the knowledge of same.” (281-33). Im her book “Light of the Soul on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Book 3”  Alice Bailey writes:

 

 “The Akashic Record is like an immense photographic film, registering all the desires and earth experiences of our planet. Those who perceive it will see pictured thereon: the life experiences of every human being since time began, the reactions to the experience of the entire animal kingdom, the aggregation of the thought-forms of a karmic nature (based on desire) of every human unit throughout time. Herein lies the great deception of the Records. Only a trained occultist can distinguish between actual experience and those astral pictures created by imagination and keen desire”

 

I tend to question the point around a trained occultist. It is my firm belief that anyone who has the desire is able and has the right to access their own Akashic Records. I have been able to do read the  Records since I was a very small child when images ‘spoke’ to me from very early on and was then often Guided to speak this truth into the aether (out loud). It was when I started reading about the Akashic Records in 2012, that I started to understand that this was something I have been doing all my life – only I had never heard of the term. I spent the majority of my life shunning my spirituality, so I had no cause to come across it prior.

Rudolf Steiner’s book “The Akashic Records” in 1902 captured his experience with his modern clairvoyance capacity and investigated the Akashic Records for the results on things like Atlantis, Lemuria and the evolution of man and earth. In the book “The Law of One – Book 1” Steiner purported to contain conversations with a channeled “social memory complex” known to humans as Ra (the Egyptian God of the Sun) who explains: 
 
“We have explained before that the intelligent infinitity is brought into intelligent energy from the eighth density or octave. The one sound vibratory complex called edgar used this gateway to view the present which is not the continuum you experience, but the potential social memory omplex of this planetary sphere. The term your people have used for this is the ‘Akashic Records’ or ‘Hall of Records’. “

Simply, the Akashic Records are an energetic imprint of every thought, action, emotion and experience that has ever occurred in time and space. The Akashic Records can also be understood as the imprint of all experiences of all time in all realities: an etheric, holographic repository of information for human consciousness for the past, present and potentials for the future. While this is somewhat daunting it is important to understand here that the energy that makes up the Akashic Records is the energy of Love! The knowledge contained within them is the energy of Love that permeates everything in the Universe. I have come to understand and trust the guidance I bring simply by using it and watching the effect that it has on others. You are put in touch with Divine Consciousness via my Guides (they include Isis, Sekhmet, Mary Magdalene and the Archangels throughout the reading) and your own. With their love, support and guidance you are able to open your Records at any time and can return to them again and again. There is no limit on the number of readings or how often you open them. Despite what religious dogma tells us, every soul has the right to access and know what is occurring in the Akashic Records.
