The Message for 2017 is Balance and Harmony

The Message for 2017 is Balance and Harmony

 

By Kathy Custren

 

Balance and Harmony Take Center Stage in the Year Ahead

The message of cosmic consciousness intercepted is strong and focused when it comes to both balance and harmony for the year ahead. We are encouraged to keep this greater sense, this larger view, of balance and harmony at the forefront of everything we say and do. As we wonder why, the old Police song intones, “Every breath you take, every move you make, [we’ll] be watching you.”

To clarify, we do not have to start right on the first day of January. We can begin putting this alignment of balance and harmony into action “now,” as we read this. It is our greatest learning curve for the time being. In our now, we face many challenges; the year of 2016 has not been a particularly kind one. As many beloved members of our earthly family depart to rejoin the celestial realms: their ‘star’ energies are now returned to spirit.

 

Is This “Year of Great Return” Over?

The troubling, overarching sense of imbalance, unfairness, and fear of a ‘police state’ that so many of us feel in many places on our planet manifests because we tend to forget our part in the larger scheme of things. We lose sight of our spiritual connection to the greater good. The health of all and our earthly home resonates as a string in the greater tapestry. When focus narrows to our own physical discord, this disturbance carries into the spiritual/cosmic realms, too.

But is this ‘year of great return’ over, we want to know. It is not about cosmetics or looking good. The many people, plants, and animals that are no longer with us is staggering, and the loss touches us deep in our souls, as we see the water protectors come into prominence. All of us are part of the great return if we open ourselves to the concept. Once more, the cosmic message related to balance and harmony is clear—there are few promises, and many possibilities.

 

Practice and Action Carry Different Energy Signatures

Many of our departed beloveds are ones who performed remarkably in their time with us. They remind us that practice and action are two different things. The spiritual message is clear that we are not to “work on” balance and harmony to achieve the promise of “world peace” or some nebulous future goal such as that. Our lives are not some ‘dress rehearsal,’ where we ‘practice’ being something we are not.

Rather, we are asked to “do” it; to “be” in alignment with balance and harmony with each breath and action we take going forward. We are given stern warning that while many of us may be concerned about ‘big brother’ watching our physical moves on video, there is an even larger surveillance in place spiritually, as well. We must put our unique gifts into everything we do (every breath, every step) with balance and harmony as our guide.

 

What Does this Cosmic Message Mean for Us?

Our challenge is twofold: we know finding balance and harmony is important in what we do. What many of us may not recognize is its importance in our inactivity as well. Is our ‘downtime’ something that also serves the greater good? Many of us may see a parallel between late-night debauchery on Saturday if we go to church on Sunday. One ‘good’ does not always cancel the other ‘bad’ out, as those ‘sins’ can still come back to haunt us later.

The second aspect is the disharmony that goes unchecked. It is more than simply singing out-of-tune. The harmonics are areas of our lives that must be kept in check, in much the way we might tune a musical instrument. Various weather or circumstantial conditions may cause us to lose the essence of our vibration. Systems that go unchecked fall into discord, which is where we find things today.

 

What Lies Ahead, and for How Long?

The challenge found in this message of harmony and balance is not different than any other. The challenge is in applying it in our lives. Many sensitive people feel/know “something is up.” They keenly intercept the cosmic ‘warning shot’ that changes lie ahead in our path. Some have already moved house, changed jobs, cut back, or otherwise recognize the signs of this greater ‘shuffling’ taking place.

As with most messes, the greater cleansing lies ahead. How we tackle this comes with keeping balance and harmony as a vanguard, remembering that cosmic or ‘God time’ is different than the way we track it here. We may find balance and harmony in doing work alone; others may need to unite/find harmony and balance to get something accomplished. Could we find greater attunement and fruition in working together for the greater good? As always, our spiritual counterparts in the cosmic realms are watching.

 

3/Remembering the Basics of Balance and Harmony

Putting balance and harmony into practice should not be difficult. As young babies, we toddle our way to balance and refined movement. As we learn to use our voices, we learn to use the words that work best for what we need and want. In both instances, we learn to act and speak in ways that do not bring harm to ourselves and others.

With these simple basics, we go forth. The changes we undergo force many of us to adapt to very difficult circumstances. There are times when we are social and life goes well, and there are times when we do not play well with others. Finding that right or positive kind of balance and harmony can be tricky. Hence, it helps to have family and good friends to get through life together.

 

3/Remembering Alchemy and the Elements

There may be entities playing in the sandbox who are greedy and manipulative. If we feed into the greed, we may unwittingly enable their sense of power. Our own sense of being used leaves us feeling hurt. Rather than wallow as victims and enablers, we are encouraged to cut off that which does not serve us well and set new boundaries.

Therefore, nature has its seasons; its alchemical phases of change: Calcination, Dissolution, Separation, Conjunction, Fermentation, Distillation, Coagulation. Where we are in these stages are up to us to determine, and there may be aspects of our lives that also in flux. Having a keen relationship with our most basic elements and how they correspond in our everyday life is important, as water reminds us.

 

Heed the Message of Balance and Harmony

Sharing in a loving and positive way is key to finding balance and harmony. Parents may talk with their children. Friends do their friends a favor and have the honest talk. Sit together over a warm drink and talk about what balance and harmony in the greater good means to each of us. Find agreement and work to achieve it. It is the way our ancestors kept us all connected.

We have greater connection than ever before with the internet. Let us use technological gifts to help, rather than hurt, each other.

The cosmic realms have us in sight,

if we strive to get it right,

if we do align with light,

we will reach the greater height.
