Read More: Losing Faith in Spirit – What Does it Mean?
Recently, I have had many people tell me that they are struggling to keep their faith in Spirit during these challenging and changing times. Some of these are long term followers of spiritual traditions and people who have strong practices. They are wondering why, even if they pray or meditate every day, their lives are so difficult and why many of the life experiences they pray for just never seem to come about.

The New Moon in Virgo is Thursday, September 14 at 7:39PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). Dear Friends, This New Moon marks a turning point from a place that may feel like everything has come to a still point where choices can take you in any direction. This is a preparation for change and an opportunity to practice Recapitulation and Release as we reflect on the past, where we have been, and where we wish to go in the future. Make sure you find time for this inner process and trust your intuitive wisdom especially where the outer world can make little sense.

The themes for September are: “Recapitulation – Release”. Recapitulation is a recapture, remembrance, and retelling of experiences, choices, actions and relationships from the past in order to digest, neutralize and file them away without any residual emotional charge.

This is a powerful window of closure, release and moving into an empty space, waiting to be filled with something new. The time requires patience as that something new may not yet be clear or ready to manifest.

In this article we are going to revisit the topic of perception and how important changing our way of looking at the world and ourselves is in order to cope with new realities…. Some of the things I am going to say now reflect my own bias based on what I believe the long-term prospects of life on this planet will most probably be. Despite what appears to be much evidence to the contrary I believe that, come what may, the human race has already decided to have a future on this planet and that we will find ways to thrive and transform ourselves as a result of and because of a radical elevation in consciousness that is already beginning to occur.

Most of you are probably acquainted with the great interest in a variety of medicine plants or entheogens being researched for treatment with veterans and others suffering from PTSD and a variety of other disorders like obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, and various addictions. When interest in some of these plants and chemical compounds like MDMA and LSD in the nineteen sixties and seventies arose showing much promise as healing compounds, great fear among conservative government officials and other traditionalists rendered most of these them illegal and they were made schedule one drugs, a felony if someone had possession or consumed them. Researchers were no longer allowed to study them and they were off limits in every way for quite a few years.
Read More: 5 Year Cycle
Many of you have shown interest in the Trends talk reference to a special five-year cycle of change that begins in 2023 or, in other words, this year. Not being an astrologer, I cannot speak in those terms about the next five years so I will use my own way of describing the cycle which can best be characterized as change, change, and more change. As we pointed out in the Trends talk, 2023 is a year dedicated to cleaning up all the of the emotional and energetic detritus that has been brought to the surface by the big challenges we have faced in recent times…
