Overview of the Latest Issue
The main article for the Fall issue is Change is Upon Us! What Now? The 2016 U.S. Presidential election sent heads exploding across the country and the world! Many of those who voted for President-Elect Trump never imagined he would win. Those who voted for him as a "safe" protest or jab at Hillary Clinton, those who voted for third-party candidates in an election process where third-party candidates cannot win—and those 1/3 of registered voters who didn't vote at all—had a fast lesson in the reality that every single vote counts, even when we may not be enthusiastic about either candidate!
So... How could this happen? Why did it happen now? What does it mean? And what do we do now? These are mostly questions being asked by those who aren't happy with the result (no matter what they did in the voting booth), but they are important questions for everyone. And there are important Universal principles—lessons and tools—that apply here to everyone, now and moving forward. They don't apply just to elections, they apply to all of life, and if you haven't been working on mastering them, you might want to start. This is a long article, and I hope you will find lots of useful information, hope, and empowerment in it!
There are several secondary articles this month that supplement the commentary in the main article.
It's All Brought to You by the Uranus/Pluto Square reminds us that "change" is exactly where we are supposed to be! The "Occupy" movement and the anger and frustration that erupted as the Uranus/Pluto Square moved into place did not go away, it merely simmered underground awaiting a resolution of the issues... or an outlet. This most influential astrological aspect of our time is helping us to dismantle the outdated structures in our lives from the personal (beliefs, self-definitions, habits, relationships, jobs, etc.) to the national and global (equal rights, the economy, health, education, agriculture, technology, etc., etc.). It also gives us the opportunity to create something better that is sustainable and supports everyone, rather than the few "at the top." It is up to all of us to be alert, aware, and awake, and to use our power and influence (which is more than we imagine) to create the kind of country and society that we want... for everyone!
Let There be Peace on Earth, and Let it Begin with Me is about finding peace in these times of great change, and the companion article, How Do We Begin to Make Peace?, offers some tips. How did we get to a point where each half of the country is fearful, name calling, and hurling epithets at the other? What role did we each play, and what role did our "leaders" play? How about the media? How about our religious leaders? We don't seem able to have deep, civil discussion about any of the many serious problems confronting us, because every issue seems to be reduced to sound-bites, pithy expressions, and us-versus-them thinking and labeling. Locked in these oh-so-worn-out Piscean Age ways of relating, we will never move forward in a meaningful way. We're going to have to put our defensiveness, self-righteousness, superciliousness, and disdain—and our elitism of all stripes (economic, gender, intellectual, and religious/philosophical elitism)—aside, stop defining ourselves in terms of us- versus-them, and really start to talk to each other. And guess what? That has to start with each of us! The first step is to examine how and when we do this in our own lives... and work on changing that, even though it may not be easy!
If you're really upset about the election outcome, there are even practical ideas of things you can do out in the world to make it better. Doing something empowers us and takes us out of victim mentality. And you might also refer back to the Summer issue's main article about how Dark Nights of the Soul are really a gift from the Universe (even if we only manage to appreciate them after the fact)!

Read Tunnel Vision!
Welcome to my newsletter, Tunnel Vision! I periodically share observations, musings, and tips—based on what I learned during and since my Near-Death Experience—on where we are in the Great Shift of the Ages, how the Shift is manifesting in our lives, and how to navigate the waves of change, rather than getting dragged under, kicking and screaming! (Been there; not pretty!) The easiest way for us to make this great transition and transformation is to examine everything... what we think we know, what we believe, who we think we are, and how we act... and let go of everything that is no longer working for us, supporting us, or true. Letting go of judgments is the first step. One thing I learned from my NDE is that God doesn't judge us, God only Loves us... unconditionally. Judging others and ourselves is a distinctly human trait! Unconditional Love is all about ACCEPTANCE (and accepting what is does not necessarily mean approving of it or liking it or allowing that person to stay in your life). That's what Love really is! I hope you enjoy my musings in the current or archived issues. To read my articles in the predictions issues of The Sedona Journal of Emergence!, you can find them on my Other Articles page, a sub-page of this one.
