When Life Surprises You!

When Life Surprises You

Welcome! 
Let's face it, life will surprise you no matter how organized your plans may be. Sometimes things don't go according to schedule. That's when Plan "B" comes into play. In other words, if we find a way to go along with the Universe's plan, then we will have resilience and transformation in our lives. Plan B helps us grow.

I personally have difficulty when things don't turn out the way I expected. Right now I'm feeling challenged with planning for my upcoming trip to India. The funny thing that has my mind doing cartwheels is figuring out the appropriate clothing to navigate through action-packed days. Sounds like I need to free up the "monkey mind" and just let things unfold. Phew; okay, I said it!

Let's find out why November is a month to have plan "B" in place. 

 
Elevate Your Consciousness!

Mary Jane
 

Phase 1: Receptive Water over Receptive Water brings forth a few things to consider this month:

1. Persevere and be diplomatic.

2. Be perceptive at discovering people's hidden desires.

3. Be resourceful and use bargaining tactics when you can.

4. Believe in miracles. Remain peaceful yet earnest.

5. Socialize with family and friends but be mindful of overindulging.

6. Communication this month is about advancing your ideas by influencing the thoughts of others.

* Yin water over yin water nourishes. Therefore, it behooves you to nourish self and others this month. The sense of sight and the kidneys are most vulnerable. Take precautions to drink plenty of fluids and protect your eyes. Engaging in activities that keep the joints supple such as swimming or yoga bodes well this month. Guided meditations and a diet rich in fiber and foods like garlic, leek, sea vegetables, cabbage and turnips are also a good idea.


 Phase 2: Centering Earth
The month of November returns the loshu grid to its home. What does that mean? All the trigrams align to their natural position within the grid. For this to occur, the center is pure earth. This pure earth does not represent a trigram but rather the center whereby all things rotate around it. Think of the planets of the solar system revolving around the sun due to the force of its gravitational pull. The center of the loshu grid, represented by the number "5", is like the sun, whereby all the other trigrams revolve around it. In this system of feng shui, each trigram, and the number 5, goes through cycles of potential positive and negative influences. In this current 20 year cycle (2004 - 2024), the number 5 is considered chaotic. Here's comes "Plan B." 

1. It is preferable not to engage in any major decisions or activities whereby there are lots of moving parts... And I'm travelling to India! Okay, it's all about intention. Take the time to double and triple check your plans, and make sure you have a "Plan B" available. Let's face it, life goes on. Be the warrior and go with the flow. Heed advice, look over contracts more than twice, and take out travel insurance. That was a reminder for me!

2. Keep strong ties with family this month. Be mindful of diet and exercise to keep healthy and vibrant. Windfalls are likely, so stay focused to navigate all the activity.

3. Take time to read and journal this month. Spin ideas and work with the Law of Attraction. This means you have to have a vision and goals to work with.

4. Be creative and playful this month. Try to view things from a child's perspective - like seeing things for the first time. It will reveal new information that otherwise may be overlooked.

5. Mentors, mentors, mentors! This is a month to seek them out. It may require travel to seek out who the Universe wants you to meet.

6. Be flexible and fluid like a serene waterway. Think of how water freezes when the temperatures drops. This is the type pf resistance that can occur if you are not mindful of speech.

7. Accept resources offered to you this month. Rely on your intuition if your plans fall apart.
 

Food to Incorporate This Month:

To remain balanced this month, it's a good idea to add some wood, water and metal foods.

Sample Wood Foods: 
  • Parsley - Leeks - Apples - Spinach - Hazelnuts
Sample Metal Foods:
  • Ginger - Curry Powder - Kohlrabi - Peaches
Sample Water Foods: 
  • Eggplant - Cabbage - Miso -  Cinnamon - Pumpkin Seeds
Raw Shoots and Seeds Salad: One of my favorite salads from Vegan … made simply
 
In a large mixing bowl add the following:
  • 2 - 3 cups mixed seed and bean sprouts (alfalfa, mung beans, soybeans, adzuki beans, chickpeas and radish seeds)
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots or peaches
  • grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons vegan omega - rich oil


You can make a lemon juice dressing by mixing lemon juice with the oil. Stir the dressing in the salad and enjoy!

Serene water in this landscape. This is how you should feel this month with receptive water over receptive water!
