Responding to Your Clarion Call
“Those who have ears, may they hear.”
By Alisa Battaglia
The energetic impulse of 2020 is about taking action in our lives with enthusiasm while standing at the edge of a precipice. It is about initiative that is provoked from deep within to awaken us in some way-to shatter the false security beneath our feet. The quickening message may come from our intuition, inspiration or the stark reality of our situation, through a tragedy of some sort, the loss of a job or even threatened health. Whatever sphere of life that requires attentive action, the arising impulse from within us is about the need to make visible alterations in and out side ourselves. For many, this wake-up call is felt as an unwelcome intrusion disturbing the safe harbor of our mechanical ways, which requires letting go of foundations previously counted upon. Here we are shown where we have given our power away, as no form can seduce us, use us, or betray us without our permission and cooperation. Discernment is the faculty we use to determine the true nature of any image or situation.
Mastering our lives is about finding the balance point between our need to control and the call to entirely surrender unto the wisdom of our Essential Self, as Soul or Spirit. For some this may be about trusting in the movement of Spirit and putting “knowing,”- the Spirit of Truth into action, while for others there may be a need to confront deeply buried fear of the power that is their Essence. Still, some may be a need to cultivate the character to be less critical and more accepting, or a relationship may demand new ways of relating. The inner call, too, may be to implement new ideas into a project, such as writing a book or changing an avocation into a vocation, in order to serve in joy. Whatever the need, the true wisdom of our experience is showing us the power of choice, that we can choose love and trust over fear and doubt.
Too often, when the clarion call comes we ignore our internal signals of closing and opening doors to change. We resist that which seeks new direction and grasp to our myriad attachments, ways of thinking and doing in fear of what a life of meaning and purpose may demand of us. Sometimes we may need to say “No” to a potential door opener, which is a valid choice when the timing is not ripe when instead what may be required of us is more discipline, more patience and a deeper trust that the Universe is essentially supportive. However, when we refuse all signals to align our lives in rhythm with Source and let fear override a deeper connection with our Essence, we bifurcate and move against ourselves that carries even more consequences. This is when the Universe, through the Magnetic Law of Attraction and the greater wisdom of our Soul intercedes thus, designing the forms of loss we encounter meant to pull us onto a path of illumination. Hence, the greater our attachments the more painfully we experience loss.
The cyclic energy of Earth through the first quarter of the new year calls us to take hold of the Universe’s positive energy to guide us into action, to make choices-to reset our goals, clear space to embrace the new and to honor the expression of our inner calling with courage and commitment. This enlivening energy asks us to accept responsibility, to leave our comfortable past and abandon our imagined futures, reconcile and transcend, as Truth arises from within. When we say “Yes,” to life we feel a quickening within our hearts, we breathe deeply, and embrace everything with flexibility to the changes life presents to us through synchronicity and golden opportunity. We reap rich rewards when we believe enough in our selves to pursue our inner call and invite the dialog of love into everything. Fostering a support system helps to ground our creative energies and acts to lend clear vision of what we want and where we are going that then makes us accountable in fulfilling our goals.
If nothing else, remember this. “The Master of Divine Sovereignty” is inside each and every one of us. Let choice allow its presence to occupy the place of authority in each of our experiences. Surrender unto its guide every thought, word and action to produce a sense of security, a strong foundation far beyond anything previously known. Let the powerful transformative Saturnian energies of Capricorn help stave off our personal attachments to stories, experiences, and fears. Let it be about how each embrace their Soul’s authority and step into the lineage of Light that we are. This is my wish for us all!”
