Two forces of consciousness pulling in opposite directions.
Today the Lord aspect of the Mayan day comes to the fore. The duality of power on every level is highlighted. Our personal relationships also may come with an element of a power struggle.
The light we radiate is creative and today it meets the creative urge of others; the challenge is to accept the differences. The polarity of differing good intentions is a creative conflict that generates energy and ultimately asks us to be more open.

Today, we navigate the duality of having total control as opposed to relinquishing all responsibility. The resolution to this paradox is finding the resonance within yourself that accommodates the force and power coming from Life towards you.
Open yourself to embrace a wider consciousness.

The Enchantment Shift and the Power of the Feminine
For me personally, I am intensely feeling the challenge of how to cope with the abundance of dark truths that are now being revealed in clear detail.
Every day, the falsity of the present mythos and its system is brought into the light of awareness.
On one hand, we want to be a force for good, to focus on the light, the beauty and the ‘solution’. On the other hand, to ignore the truth seems plain wrong.
There seems to be no right way. Whatever we do is wrought with imperfection.
It is very easy to upset people, to disturb them and to create walls between people which then crystallise our own positions in disconnected compartmentalised realities.
The current centre of gravity of humanity – all 7.6 billion of us – can be thought of as an individual of vast complexity who has suddenly realised that their life is no longer working and that all they have striven for is now empty and devoid of meaning – and they feel awful. Their whole reality now seems like an illusion.
The whole history needs rewriting.
What happens to an individual who successfully moves through this transition involves healing, which includes in the first instance an encounter with their shadow. The individual that is our species incorporates all of the psychological complexes and situations that we can imagine. The abuse, manipulation, trauma, deception and, finally, acceptance of how it is that the individual gave their power away through spiritual contract comes to light.
Ultimately the healing requires assuming a position of total responsibility... but without self-blame!
We tear up the contract.
To get to this level of spiritual sovereignty means experiencing the full gamut of emotions, including the anger directed at the abuser.
It means looking long and hard with deep analysis into the shadow, getting stuck sometimes in turgid processing, and then continuing to have the courage to keep looking yet deeper, until we get to the core problem.
It means being misunderstood and seeming to be ‘losing it’, of changing and losing our identity, as well as the old friends who were heavily invested in who we were. The old secular friends from our past will say we are mad; we have gone soft in the head and have become irrational, disturbing to be with and undiplomatic.
Woman, in general, are far more able to do this work of transformation and of evolving their consciousness, and often make the best counsellors and healers.

Eventually we see the abuser as a sad and small individual, not the big all-powerful individual that they wanted us to see them as, and then we reclaim our power.
So I cannot see how we can ignore the dark truth of our world – and sometimes that might mean venting rage.
The idea that we can only transform and evolve through transmitting light seems to me to be flawed. Why? Because I see so many ‘light people’ continuing to fall for heavily manipulated agendas intended to dis-empower humanity yet further and to send us back to the dark ages of feudalism and enslavement.
Whilst the abuser does this to us, he or she is also destroying our planet, whilst pretending to care for it and save it with clever words about our environment.
The way forward requires emotional intelligence and this is most readily available in the feminine. When we look at all of the institutions of our mainstream world, they are totally dominated by twisted male agendas, the worst of masculinity.
In these times, I truly believe that the woman has far more power than the man to change this world.
These small abusive men that hide behind guns and lies are all scared of the feminine.
Until or unless the woman wakes up and get angry, we are screwed.
