Here is an extract from Lee Channing’s June 2012 newsletter. To have Lee’s full newsletter Speaking Spiritually delivered to your inbox go to Spirits Evolving now.
October is a strong, if somewhat slow moving, month. Some of the issues of September will linger just long enough for you to work through them, so don’t give up if you didn’t “finish” a lesson. October can be very rewarding IF you choose to harness your mind. What a daunting job to “harness your mind” – is it even possible? Well, to an extent. Our mind is our most powerful tool for growth and our strongest enemy.

October is Golden
The energy color for October is gold – yes, gold, an usual happening. Gold can be viewed as a very dark shade of yellow and some of those “yellow” traits do apply, but the dark gold that I’m intuitively seeing is more connected to the base (red) energy center and below. It’s a warm, masculine color that can help us open new doors to inner awareness and calmness and the need to feel well grounded and supported. The emotions connected to gold are wisdom, power, high ideals, and abundance and the emotional challenges can be self-rejection, avoiding new ideas (stuck in a mental rut), and fear of new connections.
The energy hint for October is to be very aware of your thoughts and your desire to control any and everything. Relationships: You may shy away from anything new in a relationship. Don’t be surprised, but fight the urge to ignore others. Pay close attention to the people/conversations you’re drawn to. There is much you can learn from others, particularly this month. Be thoughtful and aware at every turn. Finances: A very good month to straighten out your finances. You will see (and feel) new paths for financial growth. That new job may just appear and others who recognize your talents may offer new opportunities. REMEMBER: LET YOUR MIND BE A POWERFUL TOOL FOR GROWTH, NOT YOUR ENEMY.

Continuing the Conversation
My brain can be a run away train at times but not of late. In fact, I wish I could kick back and chill and daydream a bit more. Am I the only one who is working so hard that they have no time to dream?
Im a Pisces for heavens sake; I was born to dream; but not currently.
And what about others, are you running your mind or is your mind running you? I liken our brain to a bus; I like to sit in the driver’s seat of mine and steer it where I want it to go. If I don’t it will either have a mind of its own (pun) or worse still someone else will run it for me.
As Im a control freaky type of person I choose to steer my own bus/mind. Now all I need to do is learn how to slip it into dream mode at will.
Boy, I can’t believe it’s October already. My mind is still in August 🙂
Two more people died in the family in September. One aunt and my husband’s brother. When Lee Channing said that you have to either nurture relationships or get rid of them…, well both happened. We just had to let go of people who really didn’t count anymore. Which was sad, but they did nothing but bring up bad thoughts and nervousness. And I can’t play whatever game they’re playing anymore.
I guess I just said “uncle” (an expression that means: I give up)
I’ve been good at noticing the ‘tangents’ my mind goes off on and getting it back to the ‘now’ – so I’m grateful for that. Very grateful!
Something I wanted to ask: Has anyone noticed that they are loosing weight without even trying? I’ve dropped 1-1/2 sizes in about 6 weeks? Others I’ve talked to have been having the same thing happen to them.
One person in particular notices that his pants fit in the morning. When he leaves for work they’re too big. Later in the day they fit, and well…, lather, rinse, repeat.
I am wondering if this is the beginning of the change from double helix to triple helix? After all, it’s healthier to be thin and perhaps our bodies are being prepared for this to happen. (just guessing after all 🙂 )
Dreaming? I have only been watching myself dream lately. I’m not really part of them. Just watching what my ‘dream-self does.’
Also, I find that I’m not tired at night and I’m wide awake in the morning. Which is odd for me. Hmm…
So in order to get to sleep at night I go into the dream I had where I saw the opening to Source Energy and I lie down in front of it and gently fall asleep. It’s the only thing that seems to work.
Last month (?) I decided that I’d find things those small things that ‘just happen’ funny. I don’t wonder why anymore, I just try to keep my mind clear and see things as amusing. Most of the time it works 🙂
Why be serious all the time, I don’t see the point in it anymore. Things will either get done. Or they won’t. Either way not real concerned about it.
(Which makes everything so much easier)
Ah well, it’s Columbus Day here in the States and I think I’ll just wonder around the internet. I’ve been told Gregg Braden has a new youtube re: 2012. That should be interesting!
Be well all & Live Big,
What a ways to start a post – two deaths. My condolences – and, how’s your brother going by the way?
Two things on a personal level.
First, far from losing weight Ive actually put it on. So unless there is an international redistribution I cant ascribe to your helix theory, based on weight.
Second, my younger daughter has just been named join-Dux of Year 12 at her school; equal first among 300+ girls. She was Dux last year and this year she and the other girl blitzed the grades with 7 distinctions each. I am so proud of her; she’s very bright, beautiful; talented and she works hard too. So, Speech Night will be very special for us this year to.
Congratulations to your daughter! She must work hard to be join-Dux 2 years in a row! You sound very proud, I’m happy for your family!
My brother sounds good. He goes to the doctors a few times every week, but he said he’s use to it. He has a strong spirit. I’ll leave it at that.
Sorry to hear about the weight 🙂 – I’m certainly not saying everyone, I’m only saying that a bunch of people are experiencing this and was wondering if anyone here was too.
I’m sorry to have begun my post with what happened in September. I’ll did not mean to be depressing and truly, I am sorry. I guess I just posted what was first on my mind.
Marianne, I for one did not find your post about death depressing.
Sometimes life is more depressing than the alternative 🙂
And thank you for the congrats. We are so proud of Lauren; she really is a rising star.
PS Can I give you back my extra weight now – it must have come from you!
I am reading this for the first time in Mid Nov. I had commented on Sept. News letter explaining the turbulence at work and how I finally had the courage to speak up about the favoritism and lack of work division in the workplace. Upon reading about the calm spiritual understanding that would/might occur curing this month I find that it was so true. Being skeptical of things that I can not touch or see. It is an adjustment to believe the calmness and understanding of things that came over me the month of Oct. making it possible to speak my mind against a wall of defensive dislike of my fellow workers. It is rather like reading a horoscope the days after seeing how true it was. Describing what actually came down that day or in this case the month of Oct.
I had an understanding of what I was against yet felt it absolutely necessary to right the wrong that I saw regardless of the consequences . I do NOT like confronting others rather try to smooth things out. Smoothing things out was not working and I knew that I had to speak up for my own sense of peace within.
I do not know where this courage came from. Even though my stomach was bubbling up saying what needed to be said. I felt a calmness directing me urging me on. I felt so very uplifted regardless of the consequence speaking up may have on the relationship of my boss, nasty co-worker and myself.
I do not regret speaking my mind, not one bit. Though sent to the higher ups using the term bullying to describe to my boss what I would not put up with that I just wanted things to be fair.
In the end I feel a peace within that I can not describe. It is knowing that though I may not understand or agree with those around me. It is o.k, they have their reasons for acting like they do and I just roll with it knowing that their mood is not my fault and though seemingly directed at me it is nothing I did to give them the glass is half full mentality.
Again, coincidence? or Kay sura sura?
