Where The Power Lies

“In a world that gives more lip service to freedom than it supports in practice it is little wonder that we find ourselves questioning how much effect we can have over our life. The continued encroachment of governments at all levels and the general acceptance of that encroachment as the common standard is changing, perhaps forever, the individuality of our society. From bedroom to boardroom we seem to be haunted by incessant demands all of which, when put together, appear to take away our rights and freedoms. It is in metaphysics that we learn how to deal with the world by learning how to “use” ourselves. The individual who attacks the windmills of Caesar’s Laws is wasting time and energy.
 
To live is to focus on oneself; to recognize that in any condition we are left with the power of choice. Whether freely roaming the beaches of a tropical island or laying impassively on the cot of a prison cell, choice is always our companion. We can choose to think – positively or negatively. We can choose to accept a statement as truth or lie. We can choose who we will share ourselves with and in our society how we will use our talent. If all is taken from one, the power of choice still remains as the strongest weapon of the Universe. Our problem is that we fail to use it, or we use it only sparingly as if we somehow believe that only a small amount of it was allotted to us when we came here. But the reality is that we have unlimited use of this unlimited power. Facing any condition, any event, any circumstance, it is in our own best interest to STOP and think of our CHOICES. There are always two ways to go and almost always there is the right and wrong. To complain that we do not know the difference is a cop-out. No one knows you as well as you do and if you would but listen to yourself; deeply and willingly, you will always make the right choice. That is not to say that events will manifest exactly the way you want them to. We often see our choices producing upheaval, change and disengagement. But if we stay true to the power, we will see that it has all worked out rightly.
 
Every day gives you a multitude of opportunities and if you used no other power than the power of choice, clearly and with intention, you would control your life and the events in it. Choice is the mustard seed of abundance. Its continual planting provides a fruitful harvest. To leave it in the storehouse is to invite bareness. Every minute, every hour and every day, the choice is yours. Empower yourself!” – Gregge Tiffen

Retrograde Alert 2018 – Ruler 8

RULER #8 – MONEY AND SUCCESS ENERGY – RETROGRADES FROM APRIL 22, 2018 THROUGH OCTOBER 2, 2018 
 
This retrograde effects two areas; finances and success. Globally, the financial areas can be unsettled and often gains made now can easily be lost later. On the world scene, everyone wants to be at the head of the line and there is more than enough ego bellowing to last for the rest of the year. This is a retrograde that can appear sometimes more than once a year (it will not in 2018) and accounts for fluctuating money markets and business trends more than any other condition. High financial risk by countries who have nothing else to lose can disrupt economic stability throughout the world.
 
On a personal level this retrograde calls for balancing the financial ship. It is an especially GOOD TIME to go back and look at financial blunders that have hurt your bottom line or played havoc with your budget. Stop making the same financial mistakes over and over again. Increasing debt with the pie-in-the-sky belief that the lottery will save you is inviting long lasting disaster. Quick money or money falling from the sky is not something you will likely see during this retrograde. Lending and borrowing should be managed with a tight fist. Financial contracts should be read with a fine tooth comb to make sure that you do not miss anything in the fine print. And, in all cases, financial dealings should be backed in writing. Verbal agreements are very likely to turn out badly.
 
Career and job conditions will depend on what you’ve done in the past that has brought you to your current position. Old mistakes or poor performance can now jump up to hurt your advancement. Pushing for a raise or a promotion is not likely to go in your favor unless you can point to a very positive track record in your past output. Watch the political in-fighting at work. The knives are very sharp now and your back is as vulnerable as a turkey’s neck in November. It can be a good time to reposition yourself and solidify your status if you do it quietly and without making waves. Once this retrograde is over, you will be able to move much more aggressively. During this 8th Ruler retrograde, RE-WORK and CORRECT are the keys!

Retrograde Alert 2018 – Ruler 7

RULER #7 – PROBLEM SOLVING AND MIND ENERGY – RETROGRADES FROM APRIL 18, 2018 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 6, 2018
 
This ruler when retrograde affects the area of mental problem solving by forcing you to go back and rethink all issues that keep you from attaining satisfactory results.  You should look at this period as one for re-building.  Slow down and check your plans and your overall style of operation.  This is a period of reconstruction and should not be viewed as a negative passage.  After all, it would be impossible lives if we were not allowed to stop our forward progress long enough to go back and clean up the mistakes we had previously made.  Without this opportunity we would find ourselves more and more burdened with old errors that would finally be so taxing that no forward progress would be possible.
 
Get rid of the junk in your thought processes.  This will require very intense introspection and retrospection and more than anything a great deal of self-honesty. Get your groundwork properly in place so that only minor adjustments will be required when the atmosphere changes.
 
Make sure that you are operating from logic rather than emotion and that you exercise mental discipline and think about consequences.  Your ability to hone and use the qualities of your mind will be tested so that at the end of this period the thought/planning pattern will be on a stronger foundation upon which you can build your new experiences. Make sure that you are using the correct methodology in the Mind/Problem Solving area as outlined in your Personal Fixed Star Analysis.
 
The brain could well benefit from some extra nutritional support found in amino acids.  Be aware of your mental stress levels and take mental  “time outs” when necessary. In every situation during a 7th Ruler retrograde, RETHINK and CORRECT are the keys!

April 2018 – A Word From Bonnie

I was reading an article awhile back in which the subject of making a choice between a grievance and a miracle was discussed. It had to do with a mundane issue and was not really a belief system piece. It caught my attention because there are so many grievances being openly aired everywhere on our planet right now. With our instant and incessant communication capabilities, energy is magnified and grievance energy can be very draining. While it may relieve some internal physical pressure for those who are yelling the loudest, it doesn’t really help solve the grievance.

What we don’t hear about very much are the large and small miracles taking place in our lives and in those of our fellow travelers each and every day. Those miracles are happening because conscious choices are being made by individuals who trust in the omnipotent good of the Universe and choose  miracles rather than grievances. We are co-creators with the Universe and have not only the power, but the responsibility to choose what we want to create. The Law of Free Will is designed so that we can only choose on an individual basis and not for others. I can’t speak for you, but I hope you will join me in choosing the miracles! Happy April!

Retrograde Alert 2018 – Ruler 6

RULER #6 – RELATIONSHIP AND HEALTH ENERGY – RETROGRADES FROM MARCH 8, 2018 THROUGH JULY 10, 2018

Our first new retrograde to begin in 2018 is Ruler #6 and lasts approximately 5 months. This will give us plenty of time to make the necessary Fixed Star adjustments in the areas of our relationships. Go to your Personal Fixed Star Analysis and review the methodology you agreed to use with regard to the Relationship area. Check your Personal Bicircadian Calendar to see in which event angle the 6th Ruler is currently traveling through as this is the life event area that will be highlighted for this activity. Put your focus there to make the necessary refinements. This is not an easy retrograde but it can certainly help us to make wonderful improvements and discoveries within those realms it touches. Don’t have your personal calendar? Call or email us to order yours.

Gregge provided us with the following information to be used in our awareness, understanding and navigation of these possible conditions during the retrograde activity of Ruler #6:

RULER #6 appears to go retrograde from our vantage point on Planet Earth, beginning March 8, 2018, through July 10, 2018. The energy impress of this ruler focuses on close personal relationships (and self love), and as such, can take its place as one of the most emotional of all the retrogrades. It also has influence on your home, your health, your family and your atmosphere. If you can avoid starting (starting is the key word here) any major home projects during this period or buying and selling your home it would be to your advantage. The same can be said about medical procedures that are not emergencies or life threatening in nature, as recuperation time tends to be slower during a Ruler #6 retrograde.

“On a global scale it tends to pull attention away from large national issues and involve the individual in personal matters of the heart. On the surface, that is not too dangerous, but if we are depending upon world leaders to be WORLD leaders, we can’t be too comfortable knowing that they are struggling through bouts with their mate or ordeals with their significant other. But then humans are human and we are all in the same boat. It is a pity that there isn’t some global valentine that we could send them to make them happy.

Personally, issues can be very difficult. If you’re in a relationship you need to tread lightly. This goes for those family dynamics as well. Feathers can be ruffled in the slightest breeze and misunderstanding is commonplace. Take a long look at timing. Many confrontations can be avoided if you will just delay your comments an hour or so. Remember that the distance between one’s lips and their ear is only about 6 inches. A hasty word however can dig a chasm so wide it can’t ever be filled.

Creative endeavors can suffer somewhat under this retrograde. Give yourself more space to do the things you want to do and be kind to yourself. Creative stress can be devastating because it often promotes self-destructive tendencies. When making purchases for your personal closet or vanity don’t buy on impulse. Sleep on it because it may not look at all enticing the next day. Patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day but Pompeii was destroyed overnight.” – Gregge Tiffen

Time Waits For No One

“Life is not lived on rewind. If you are late for an appointment and move faster, you do not get back the minutes already used. However, you do interrupt the natural flow that is in constant motion. Our minds cannot grasp the concept of something that just keeps going on and on without any edges even though we are hooked into that kind of motion. Proof of this fact is the galaxies constantly moving through space. They just keep going and going. Consider freedom as a forward motion. The natural flow that is constantly moving onward and upward provides a highly individualized timing beat, one that is all your own. This tempo accounts for your ability as to how you harmonize or feel disjointed and also influences how you relate to other people. No two people ever have the same rhythms. If we break this down through the lens of time, we have to realize no two people are moving along at the same beat. Everyone and everything has a different rhythm.
 
Many years ago there were scientific studies that proved everyone had their own circadian rhythm, their own built-in time clock and no two are ever alike. Some may be close and equal in harmony. Others are very distant making it difficult to accomplish anything. Part of understanding your own particular circadian rhythm is the awareness that interacting with certain people will obstruct your natural timing because the two different beats are out of tune with one another. This is like a huge symphony orchestra where every musician is playing its own note. There is no disharmony unless someone is disharmonious with himself and tries to play someone else’s note. To pay attention and play your own “musical score” at your own tempo provides you with a sense of caution or opens doorways to opportunities. There are variables in individualized patterns that are affected by four major issues:
 
1. WEATHER: It is a large factor in affecting circadian rhythms. Some people are upset by thunderstorms and others love them. Some people find long winters enjoyable and others go south with the migrating birds.
2. FOOD: People who are ingesting food that is not harmonious with their bodies are out of synchronization with their own timing.
3. CLOTHING: Your body absorbs the colors, patterns and textures of fabrics that cover your body.
4. SURROUNDINGS: Where you are at any given moment has an enormous effect on your circadian rhythms. This is particularly true in your sleeping space because your sleeping conditions affect a restful night’s sleep or lack of sleep. Part of the atmosphere you create around you during the day comes from being boosted by accomplishment and excitement or depleted from hard work that can be traced to sleep patterns and their effect on circadian rhythms. Any one of these four elements, individually or collectively, can affect the circadian rhythms of your body.
 
The one thing I want to get across to you is how essential it is that you have an awareness of your own timing and your own rhythm because problems occur when you are not in control of your tempo. You are then in a state of chaos. Conditions become chaotic when you are not in a position to manage the harmonic of your individual core energy to create. “I don’t know what that beat is” is a valid statement. You need to pay attention and discover the basic harmony of your mind, body, and spirit. No one can make this discovery for you. The focus is on you with the thought that you want to listen to that beat and feel it. Use your own rhythm to create and move yourself through life with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. You do know what that is and you do know this does not mean you impose your demands and timing on someone else. 
 
Many people use goals to make demands and agitate their circadian rhythm. “I must do, must call, must use this time effectively, must be home by 6:30pm” are all forced issues. Build, moment-by-moment, on what you have identified as your circadian rhythm because where you were a moment ago is no longer there. The only thing you can do is to establish a new flow. Circadian rhythms depend on flow. Time travels, and whoever you are and wherever you live, the future is something that you reach at the rate of your own rhythm.” – Gregge Tiffen

A word from Bonnie…

Well, January 2018 blew right past me with so many end of year details meeting head on with setting up the new year details that I simply ran out of time to post the last update. So a belated Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2018 to each of you!
 
It looks like we are beginning this new year with some of pressures most of us experienced in 2017. That can take its toil when we are not fully aware that pressure requires some form of release. An earthquake is one of Mother Nature’s methods of releasing pressure from the deepest recesses of our planet. How many deep recesses of pressure are forming in own lives? Are we aware of what those pressures are and where they originate? Are we willing to discover and release them in a controlled and non-self-destructive way? Are we headed for a personal earthquake by ignoring our uniquely individual signals of pressure building? Do we understand ourselves well enough to know when to effectively release the pressure valves? Are we wise enough to depressurize long before we cause harm to ourselves (or others) mentally, physically and spiritually? Hopefully these questions will encourage us to use, discover or create those valves and apply them to help us circumvent the unpleasantness of personal earthquakes both minor and major. If you have any humorous, unique or creative methods you would like to share please let us know and we’ll make sure they get passed on!
 
Currently the heavens are clear of any retrograde activity and we certainly deserve a little break before we start the next round. On March 8, 2018 Ruler 6 will start its annual rebalance dance. A more detailed alert will be posted in early March.

Winter Solstice Gift 2017

Our gift to you this year from G-Systems International is presented below. Have a joyous “letting go” of the old cycle and a gentle and peaceful “welcoming” of the new.

“The Winter Solstice is an annual event when Nature reaches a peak point and, by habit, releases all the activity and pressures that have occurred upon Her during the past twelve months. At the point of Winter Solstice when Nature releases Her year, a new cycle instantly begins. This has occurred since Planet Earth came into existence, or the Planet would be extinct by now. However, humans are possessors by nature, and we are unwilling to let go. Changes are then forced upon us year after year from the pressure of energy that builds up within the syndrome of the unwillingness to let go of all that occurred during the previous twelve months.

The decades of the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s have not been quiet, simple years. The intensity of energy and the excessive pressures were and are higher than they have been in a quarter of a million years. The test of fire for purification, physically, mentally and spiritually is not a test of survival about how strong we are, but rather of how wise we are. Change is essential.” – Gregge Tiffen

**********

The following is a brief introduction to special information Gregge has provided for us to use with our Bicircadian Charts and calendars as it pertains to the position of the first ruler at The Winter Solstice. This ruler’s position on December 21, 2017 is at 2.7 degrees. Pull out your Bicircadian and locate that degree on your natal chart. Now look at the life event angle in which that 2.7 degrees is located. (Your personal Bicircadian calendar will automatically give you this information) The life event angle at that 2.7 degree mark is where your new cycle starting December 21, 2017 until December 20, 2018 will be. Look at the list below to identify the life event angle and the characteristics of the life events it represents for you in the coming new cycle.

ANGLE I – This is a cycle to adjust your activities around self focus and self intensity in order to get the most out of your year ahead.

ANGLE II – This is a cycle to be careful about taking on more than you can do or more than you need. Acquiring excesses will cause you delays.

ANGLE III -This is a cycle where there will be an intense increase in your creative output. You will see spontaneous results before you understand what you are doing.

ANGLE IV – This is a cycle where you will find yourself doing things that you avoided doing in 2017 as it pertains to world systems of all kinds.

ANGLE V – This is a cycle where a geographical house move is almost certain. You will also find yourself moving into new attitudes that have significance for a very long time.

ANGLE VI – This is a cycle for positive selfishness and getting things that enhance your vitality and self improvement.

ANGLE VII – This is a cycle where you practically stumble upon startling information from sources that were previously obscure to you.

ANGLE VIII – This is a cycle of monetary abundance that might take control over you unless you exercise a great deal of discipline. Expect a year of material gain.

ANGLE IX – This is a cycle where you will find yourself very sensitive to world events. Be aware of how affected you allow yourself to become.

ANGLE X – This is a cycle where you feel like a reluctant dragon either being dragged into the future by a chariot or tied behind it with ropes. Decide upon your fashion of participation.

* If you have not had your Bicircadian Chart done, wish to order your Personal Bicircadian Calendar, or if you would like a consultation regarding these life event angles and ruler positions indicated on your personal Bicircadian Charts or Calendars, please call our office to set up an appointment.

Have a beautiful Winter Solstice and my very best to each and EveryONE of you!

Are We Willing To Receive And Willing To Give Thanks As An Integral Part Of Creation?

“We have an abundant Universe. We have an infinite Universe. We have an omnipotent, creative Universe, and all of these things are available to us. We are willing to receive and willing to give thanks as an integral part of creation. The essence of such power is the essence of the creative force not only of the Universe but also of us as creative individuals. What must be understood is the natural course of an abundant Universe. The Universe can no more withhold than it can, in effect, destroy itself.
 
How does that affect you and me as a natural part of Universal power? To withhold ourselves from receiving Universal energy as a result of negative thinking and negative action, or to resist giving thanks from our point of awareness is to work against the flow of Universal energy. How often do we refute receiving? Every time we say, “I don’t have…I wish I had…and every time we look at our life and find some limitation. Every time we do that we are turning our back on receiving our harvest from the Universe to our spirit. We are refusing the abundance that is ours. We are saying to the Universe and to our spirit, “no thank you.”
 
We cannot transfer anything that we have refused to receive from the Universe and take into our own. We cannot give love if we cannot accept love from our Source. There is infinite love out there. There is infinite wisdom. There is infinite Joy. There is the same amount to the same degree for ourselves as there is for others. To think in terms of more fortunate or less fortunate locks us into ignorance that tells us we do not have right to harvest what we plant, what we nurture, and what we harvest. How do we accept what is rightfully ours? It is essential that we recognize what is given to us is a one-of-a-kind. There is not another one like you, nor has there ever been, nor will there ever be. Such recognition allows us to accept, to give thanks and to use what the Universe provides for each of us. The power of giving thanks gives life its vitality!”

– Gregge Tiffen

The Debt To Allegiance

“In the words of the late Ed Sullivan, America is putting on a really “Big, Big Show!” Those of us who are fully committed to metaphysical principals have deeper concerns that cannot be veneered. For us, it is living with the ever-present reality of how we handle ourselves individually and collectively that has an irreversible impact on this planet for hundreds of generations to come.

America has always assumed an important leadership role on this planet. Certainly since World War I our actions at home and abroad have played a significant role in dictating the direction of humankind. We have inherited this responsibility more as the result of a legacy left by our Founding Fathers than by the request of other nations.

We were founded as a nation of immigrants. Seldom could one lay claim to a long and glorious family history. We were nomads, restless in mind and spirit searching for an oasis and a fertile land to call home. Our ethnic heritage has held strong over the years and has been a source of pride to individuals and communities alike. We have always taken pride in pointing to our distant fatherlands and proclaiming our parental blood lines. We are everything embodied in the Statue of Liberty and more.

By the 19th century, America was recognized as the melting pot of the world, harboring just about very ethnic group known to the planet. However, today we find ourselves on the brink of the new world. Our world is much different, in fact, totally alien to that which was ever conceived by our Founding Fathers. When there Continental Congress met in Philadelphia in those tumultuous days of the 1700’s, no one even dreamed that 200 plus years later, the Constitution they were drafting would blanket a land that stretched from the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans in a coverlet required to drape across a national bed 3,000 miles wide. What those gentlemen conceived was nothing more than 13 strong, independent colonies, free of the Monarchy and intent upon their own destiny. They met the challenges of their time, and they left the future and challenges to those who were bound to follow.

Our challenge today is the ultimate test of the strength of our national fabric. Placed in a position of world leadership, we can neither plead weakness or disinterest in determining the future of the world and all who inhabit it. As a country, we have seldom, if ever, turned our backs on a challenge. We have committed ourselves to the rest of the world as no country has ever done before us. We have met our responsibilities and then some. We have been both loved and hated for our willingness to commit to the good of our fellow humans.

However, today we are in quicksand, and we are not fully aware of it. Today, we still offer the concepts of our Founding Fathers and of our melting pot heritage as the menu of democracy. It is a menu that produces social, economic, and spiritual indigestion among Americans and their fellow humans abroad. Our leaders, our captains of industry, and our citizens are blind to the demands of a new world and times that are separating themselves from the umbilical cord of history. If we are to survive and to lead this world into its new era, we must do it with an awareness of the future and a willingness to divorce ourselves from the past.

Our first step must be a redesign of the fabric of unity that makes this country the United States of America. Proud of our ethnic heritage and threatened by a world in war and chaos, we have clung more closely to our former lands. We speak of ourselves as Italian-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Jewish-Americans, German-Americans, African-Americans and White Anglo-Americans. We speak of ourselves as something else before we speak of ourselves as solely Americans. We have depreciated our cohesive force as a nation. We are more interested in holding to our own ethnic piece than joining fully with all other pieces to produce a new fabric with a national pattern. We have become a nation divided, if indeed, we have ever been a united nation at all. We wave foreign flags and proclaim foreign languages and hold to our ethnic needs over our communal requirements. What we must understand is that although that was what was necessary to establish our national fabric over the past 200 plus years will no longer serve us for the next 200 years.

The world must now be lead by a united people, a dedicated people, a determined people, who proclaim their unity though action and not rhetoric. It is time for us to put aside our ethnic blankets and wrap ourselves in a common flag. How can this nation send a message to its congress when every interest is predicated upon ethnic pride and regional greed? How can we dare tell the world that we are The United States of America when every action and every path we tread proclaims our disunity? Must we have wars to unite us? Must we be a nation of disaster before we can be a nation of leadership? If that is our destiny then this country and our beautiful planet is doomed. We must start now to think and act like a nation united. We must send the message to our representatives in Washington that every bill and every piece of legislation must be designed to strengthen our national fabric.

We must take the democratic steps to remove those who still serve special interest groups at the cost of national unity. We must, to a person, recognize that the survival of this world rests on the quality of this country’s leadership. This leadership cannot be discharged by a nation of parts. To those of you who care and who have a metaphysical commitment to yourselves, to mankind, and to this planet I send this message. Work first to strengthen yourselves. Having done that, divest yourselves of prejudices and lay your ethnic heritage to rest. Proclaim yourselves as Americans to the rest of the world, not in boasting terms, but in terms of caring enough to keep the promises established by our forefathers. Carry forth the traditional torch of freedom with a new light of leadership. It is time that we manifest the motto of our founders: “E Pluribis Unum” – OUT OF MANY, ONE.” – Gregge Tiffen 2008
