Thank you so much for spelling this all out. I GREATLY appreciate your insight not only as a grammar student of this language but as an opportunity to help my friend find her way into her emotions and be able to hang out there for a bit.
It's interesting to note that she just spent time this fall with a good friend of hers who was going through the same circumstance. D.was emotional which took her by surprise, but her friend with cancer not so much emotion. It was as if she was given a pre cancer gift via her friend, a clue.
The night before she took off with her students, a group of close friends gathered at my home with her. She had been presented the option by her employer of not leading this group and most of us thought that she should opt out in deference to her health. However, her doc had said that postponing surgery for several weeks would not likely make much difference. Her point to all of her concerned friends and given the green light by her doc, was that she would prefer not to sit and stew about this when she could be making some money and be occupied until surgery. For a very brief moment as she was speaking to us, her emotions surfaced (which was related to a sense of gratitude toward our love for her). In lightening speed, she pulled out of her dive and instantly brought the group back to intellectual discussion. After letting this go on for a few minutes, I asked her to pause and rewind back to this moment. I asked her to mark that moment and said that all of us were 100% there for her when she reconnected with this place. I had thought that in bringing the conversation back to this point maybe something further could be released. Well, sort of. What came up was a bit of controlled anger towards being exposed and put on the spot. An almost imperceptible energetic push instead of the opening I had hoped would be receptive of feeling the depth of love surrounding her. In ten days she will be returning here and living with us during at least the first part of treatment.
So, the sixty-four thousand dollar question I have is this: Having her here, and being one of the only people in her life to actually see this phenomenon occur as it is occurring, what can I do to organically support her in reconnecting with her emotional body?
As far as EA, Rad, you have given me a gourmet meal to chew on. As I have begun to savor it, nutrient rich, I realize how much I want to prepare this dish for others to enjoy. Sharpening my knives as line cook and looking down the road towards sous chef ( enough of this corny metaphor already:), I do have many EA questions for the chef (sorry), but if I may I'd start with one based on this:
One of the clues, playing EA detective, to where this took place in her last life is the Mars in Aries that is inconjuncting her Neptune in Scorpio. From a geodedic point of view that line comes through Poland and Germany.
I see that line, and assume from your delineation which refers to her last life (or relatively recent world events) what happened there. Every time i read about specific lifetimes, I wonder what the EA correlation is. In D.'s case specifically, but also the general dynamics which speak to this issue. I would be happy to explore that through another resource other than this board if someone will just point to the appropriate door.
Last thing, as I realize this may post may be consuming more than it's fair share of attention.
The story you came up with is just that Eric: a story. And, in my view, we should never tell another 'stories' that somehow we come up without ACTUALLY KNOWING if that story is true or not. It is important to understand the archetypes and the dynamics within those archetypes that do correlate with the specific reality of the client. And that is what we then share with a client if that client is so inclined.
I thank you for this piece of wisdom. There are scores of charlatans and quacks out there and I appreciate the fact that you reigned my fantasy world in lest i contribute to that. Again, this may be a larger question best dealt with elsewhere but i saw what i saw. So, the question here really would lean towards how to discern if a "story" such as this is based on truth or fantasy?
Thank you so much for what you have said.
As I read this:
On a positive note, apart from an opprtunity to address SOUL stuff..is that she is approaching her Jupiter return and very near her Jupiter return, Venus will also be conjunct her Jupiter. This is quite a benevolent energy and an opportunity for some higher help in the healing department. Note, Jupiter also expands everything it touches so in some cases can enlarge something so it may be incredibly 'lucky'that she caught the lump now because if she had not, it could have grown to be a potentially more challenging cancer.
SO on Feb 17 Jupiter and Venus come together,then on Feb 24 she has a Jupiter return. this initiates a brand new 12 year cycle, an opportunity to clear the decks and finally HEAL the TRUTH of the pain that has been held within..Jupiter in Pisces.
it was like there was a little release from the pressure valve and bit of emotion rose up in welcome relief. While I attributed this to D's circumstances, my birthday is six months later than hers which connects us in similar ways and my Mars sits between her Moon/N.Node, so maybe it's because I feel like I can truly be of some service to her at this time. Mars/6th. I hope so.
As a woman who has heard far too many of these stories,it pains me greatly to see and experience the suffering of so many on this topic but unfortunately the distortions are DEEP due to the patriachal permeation. I am sorry to hear about yet another woman facing the physical consequences of the repression.
Is it not true that it is what it is? I say this not in any way as a snappy comeback, but really as a question to myself. It is what it is, and on top of this is a shitload of pain and suffering because a bunch of lesser evolved souls have gone about wreaking havoc. Right? Still happening. It defies belief and can just grind us down to no hope and no fight. I think that's the permeation you speak to. Arghhh!!!
Maybe you speak to something more specific than the general patriarchal takeover or not. The first time I really heard the story was from Demetra George some years ago. As she told the story through the asteroid goddesses, I found that all of the sudden I was just weeping. I just felt crushed. But the vast majority have no idea...
So with that, I appreciate sooo much the fact that you give voice to that. To dredge it up out of the dark and expose it for what it is.
Thanks for the Bright Rays of Sunshine:)
It is with a deep bow to both of you that I exit for now.
