October is INTENSITY


Lena Stevens

By Lena Stevens

The main theme for October is INTENSITY.

Everything this month is amplified, paving the way for stronger reactions and increased sensitivity. It's as if the 100 watt light you are used to operating under just got turned up to 1000 watts. The resulting light intensity would take some getting used to. This intensity has been with us to some degree all summer through various themes and the veil that has kept us asleep and in the dark has been slowly coming off. But now that veil is completely coming off exposing us fully to the intensity. Some of us will instinctively try to turn away and retreat even deeper into a dark shell. But there is no escape. As in childbirth there is now full dilation and a need to stay focused in order to push through our own birth.

This birth is a birth of higher consciousness bringing with it many gifts for those who choose to be awake and proactive instead of staying asleep. There is potential to increase our understanding of the different planes of existence, the quantum field, and how the universe works. There is potential for greatly increasing telepathy, seeing, channeling, healing and other practices using altered states. There is finally an opportunity for beginning the necessary integration of the higher centers (higher intellectual, higher emotional, higher moving) with the intellectual, emotional and moving centers, in order to achieve greater and more regular access to levels of higher consciousness. The higher centers are the gateways to higher consciousness and those of you who have been doing practices to increase your consciousness will be greatly rewarded this month. You may experience sudden breakthroughs or opportunities that were not available before. Take advantage of what is showing up.

The sun is a barometer for intensity. The sun itself as a being is going through its own changes and increases in intensity. Since our evolution is being guided in part by the sun, we are affected by the changes the sun is going through. There is an energetic radiation that is designed to help eliminate the cancers of lower vibration material, forcing us to look at our attachments to old patterns and non-serving behaviors. In a way, the parental energies of the sun (father) and the earth (mother) are holding the container for our rebirth at this time. As the influences this year have been more masculine or yang, the solar theme has been more prominent. In the near future we will shift to a more feminine set of themes for balance.

What if you could see more, taste more, smell more, feel more sensations, be more emotionally empathetic, experience stronger telepathic communication, and feel generally enhanced in your awareness of everything? What if every moment of your day unpacked itself into a whole experience? This is what is available to you should you choose to be awake. Waking up requires a 100% commitment and turning your back on everything that is not of spirit. It requires a willingness to embrace the intensity of the moment regardless of what it is bringing or feels like at the time. Staying awake takes focus, responsibility, acceptance and neutrality.

What is necessary to move into intensity in a positive way is the elimination of any imprinting based on past experiences or learned behavior that has "intensity" meaning something negative, harmful, hard to deal with, painful, victimizing, hurtful or devastating. This is a tall order but if you set your intention to begin the process and if you catch yourself when reacting fearfully or negatively to an intense situation, you can shift your perceptions and stay present, focused and neutral. If you can begin by not judging anything intense as good or bad but simply and neutrally intense, that is a start. Remember that in this illusionary game of life, we are entering the place of higher stakes, a time of initiation into a higher consciousness, if we choose to play.

On the other hand, if fear has you by the throat, you could experience an intensity that drives you even further into negative states of depression, anxiety, pain, anger and resentment. If you find yourself martyred and complaining, you will feel your victimization with increased intensity.

Everything is enhanced and magnified. So if you are angry, you will be hugely angry; if you are worried, those worries will seem overwhelming; if you are dissatisfied or find fault with something, that fault will seem magnified and out of proportion. This pertains also to finding fault with or judging the self. So if you are in a funk, the funk will be intense. However if you are in gratitude and appreciation and trusting in spirit, you may very well find access to those higher centers and be astonished at how well your life unfolds. What if the intensity were channeled into joy, love, connectivity, creativity, satisfaction and well- being? The choice is always yours so choose well. Even those of you who argue that you are trapped in karmic situations have a choice. You can simply choose your karmic responsibility and come from gratitude for all your opportunities. Just make sure that the karmic responsibility is indeed still yours and not something that has fallen into a convenient pattern. Since this month supports completions you may wish to review your responsibilities and see if they still hold true. Eliminate anything you don't want magnified or intensified and let spirit do the rest. You make the rules, so as long as they are in alignment with spirit, it is time to put them up on the board.

This month is marked by high drama. Intensity always brings out the drama in events, relationships and experiences. You are likely to see high drama unfolding around you as others process various forms of intensity. Have compassion rather than judgment and be neutral in your involvement. The more reactive you are to drama, the more you feed it. Focus rather on the positive aspects of opening the senses and living a fuller daily life. Drama usually means a reaction out of proportion. Don't go there. Don't play. Save your energy. Remember that drama is an energy leak and this month it is highly important to track your energy leaks and eliminate those you can. You want to be able to channel your energy into positive thoughts, feelings, intentions and actions. So stay away from drama whenever you can.

There is great wisdom available to all of us at this time should we choose to act our age. It is tough to shake off the cultural and planetary imprint of greed, competition, unworthiness and struggle. But it is time to transition from that paradigm to something a bit user-friendlier. Since this is a time of transition there is support for completions, new choices and putting old tired ways behind us. What have you created over and over and over again that does not serve you? Be done with it. Give it over to the WEST and to spirit; mourn its death and move on. Most of us have been trapped in the prison of our own limitations and the illusion that we have no choice. We rely on our mind's definition of time and space, what is possible and what isn't. Now we are being challenged to set the security of the illusion aside and trust something we have not yet experienced. How do you know everything will be OK? You don't "know" but you can imagine, intend, trust and surrender. In a way you have no choice. Evolution only goes in one direction


As I write this I am on the coast of Thailand and in the area of the Tsunami that occurred several years ago which was extremely intense and took many lives. Tuning into the area and the people here I feel no left over patterns of trauma but only a great acceptance and neutrality around this event as it occurred naturally. In sharp contrast, the area around the River Kwai and its famous bridge and POW camp still holds such memories of what humans did to each other during the Second World War that even the trees carry a great sadness. Just as I felt while traveling in Vietnam, it takes a long time to heal the energetic and emotional scars of karmic events caused by humans. Always beware of how and where you focus energy during intense times. Every thought, word and action has its karmic repercussions, so take responsibility for your attitude and what you put out there. Stay away from conflict and always come from love and compassion. If you keep the practice of perceiving everyone as spirit, you are much closer to those higher centers and the gifts they offer.

Being present and paying attention with your eyes and ears open will keep you from getting sideswiped by something unpredictable.

We are still in the influence of sudden unpredictable events and if you are not paying attention they can throw you off balance. To be proactive with the intensity of the times always turn around so you are facing what is coming. Never turn your back to the ocean as a sleeper wave can come and take you out to sea. Never turn your back on a challenge, responsibility or opportunity especially if you wish to have some say in the outcome. Being present is being awake. Start tracking your habits of going to sleep. Are you on autopilot when you are driving a familiar route? Are you on automatic when you are walking a familiar path? Do you go to sleep when you are in familiar physical surroundings? The mind tends to rob one of being present by grabbing the attention with its worries and constant planning. Try staying present for periods of time during the day so you are attentive and focused only on the task you are doing. Notice every detail of your surroundings, and engage all of your senses. Whether you are cooking, shopping, walking, driving, relaxing, cleaning, working or playing, spend some time every day being present in a way that you encourage and channel the intensity into a higher centered experience. Put into a daily practice some form of focus on opening the senses and heightening your awareness. You will be rewarded.

How the month shows up:


This is a month of personal transformation, healing, completion and breakthrough. Using the intensity proactively and wisely will produce certain results. Whatever needs to be healed in your life will come up intensely. You may be highly emotional one minute, quick to anger the next, and then suddenly feel such a heart opening and gratitude that you don't know how to hold it all. What may come up for healing are any issues around the masculine or feminine wounds you may still have. This month is supportive in beginning the process of healing these two energies. It is a planetary theme. You may also feel you need to take some time for yourself this month. Quiet, silence, meditation, contemplation are necessary for aligning yourself with the positive aspects of the month. Don't get lazy. Get present. All the areas of your life are affected by intensity; your health and physical body, your emotional life, all your relationships, your perceptions, your work and pretty much everything you do. You may have choices to make and challenges to face. Always ask for help. If you are a control freak that always needs to know and always tries to second guess what will happen in the future and is always thinking, processing, planning and worrying, you may be intensely frustrated and intensely crazed. Shut the mind off and "put it all down". The same goes with your attachments. Don't be disappointed when plans change or something does not go as you thought it should. Be grateful ahead of time for whatever opportunity this change has provided.

For some of you this month will be incredibly inspiring, higher centered and feel like the big reward for all of your hard work and discipline and practices. For others it may be excruciatingly intense, overwhelming and difficult. If you are feeling the negative aspects of this intensity, begin by eliminating drama, energy leaks, mental judgments, attachments, worries and fear. Stop complaining, take responsibility, become neutral and practice gratitude.


There is lots of healing possible in all relationships. As we are in a larger theme of healing the masculine and feminine, whatever needs to be healed between these two aspects will come up for you personally as well as globally. This is a long-range issue and a theme we will be working with for some time. However, due to the intensity of the month and the support for bringing to the surface what needs to be healed, be prepared for your own wounds to surface. Beware of reacting in negative ways to any intensity in your relationships. Emotions may be high and irrational, and reactions dramatic. Remember to take responsibility for what you may be feeling as it is your own issue. Stay away from blame. Practice compassion for yourself and others and always come from love. There is much healing that can happen this month if you allow it. Don't let stubbornness and a need to be right get in the way. Get help if you need it.
On the other hand, this is a spectacular time to strengthen and deepen real essence connections with others. Since everything is enhanced through the higher centers you have an opportunity to move into an experience of deeper connectivity, recognize agreements and go straight to the essence of a person, bypassing the shield of their personality. You also have the opportunity to heighten your telepathic communication with others and to perceive the truth. The experience of oneness is what older souls crave and it is certainly possible to experience this month.


The environment will continue to surprise us. Just when we think we have a trend predicted, it will change. More and more we are learning that it is our collective belief system that influences what happens in the environment. If enough people believe something strongly, it is likely to occur, as we are a highly creative species. The best strategy is to keep a "don't know mind" and a great deal of neutrality regarding weather patterns, earth phenomena, and the environment in general. Focusing on the negative aspects of who did what and when to damage the environment does not help. What helps is feeding the environment with appreciation through heightened sensitivity and gratitude for the incredible planet we live in. And as usual we will remind you to be flexible in your plans and neutrally accepting of what comes. Disappointment only occurs when there is expectation. So instead of expectation with some attachment to the outcome, have a strong intention to have a spectacular experience however the environment supports it.

Because of the high intensity of solar energy this month, we could see some solar flare activity and some irregularity in the tides. High solar energy needs to be balanced with water so be around water this month if you can. If not, then work with water as an element of the feminine and a support to your emotions. Baths, hot springs, water features, ponds and fountains are all alternatives to actually being in and around larger bodies of water.


Kidneys and adrenals are stressed this month as well as the liver and spleen, especially if you tend towards anxiety or worry. Trying to hold on to your mental controls is hard on the physical system. Think fluidity, neutrality and calm acceptance. Find ways to practice relaxation in the midst of turmoil and intensity. The physical body is going through changes. As the vibration on the planet increases in intensity, the body becomes more sensitive to its surroundings but also more receptive to energies and treatments that can put it back into balance. This is a good time to redefine what healing means and to dispel the myths about how long something takes. Part of the outdated belief system and paradigm has us on a time schedule of development, aging, healing and recovery. As the body becomes more aligned with the higher centers, its ability to function at a higher level of consciousness will also increase. What we call miracles will become standard procedure as we learn to work with the quantum field and to navigate outside of the limitations of time and space. Remember that it is what you believe to be true that ultimately runs the show. So practice suspending some of your judgments and reactions regarding the physical body. Stop blaming it for not working and start appreciating it as the servant it is to your essence. It is only being and doing what you have required of it for your own karmic lessons.


This is an excellent month to begin something new especially if you begin it consciously and preferably with higher centered support. For example, if you are starting a building project, make sure you do a ceremony of some sort with prayers and intentions for the project. The same goes for anything you start. If you are beginning a new set of practices or a new study or discipline, or even changing the way you do things throughout the day, begin consciously and with presence. In fact you should look at each day as a new "project" and begin your day with prayers and intentions. Make sure to include space for spontaneous opportunity.

The general area of finances will be either intensely on the rise or intensely on the decline. We may see sharp dips or rises in global economics that will have the experts scratching their heads. Remember that this is a time where predictions based on past cycles using old methods are unpredictable. You have a lot of choice this month in terms of your own finances and general business success. Strong intentions can manifest great abundance despite what you hear and read and see around you. It is also a good month for partnerships. Begin them with conscious intention and ceremony. Be very clear about your goals and make sure everyone is on the same page and that your intentions are aligned with spirit. The secret to business practices and intentions for abundance lies in the motivation behind why you are involved. There has to be a motivation that includes a high level of integrity and being of service to others. If the motivation is simply financial, you are more easily trapped in the young soul imprint of greed, competition and the game of winning even if this is not your true intention. This structure is very vulnerable right now so revisit your motivations and change your business plans or investments if you need to.

Already existing partnerships may wish to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to re establish what they are about, align themselves with a higher ideal, review and reset intentions, and anchor their practices to spirit. It is a great month for manifesting and some of you will be astounded at what you accomplish and what you are able to receive.


Look for heated intensity in this realm. Many issues will appear to be as unresolved as ever and even more so. This is in part due to the surfacing of information that has been well hidden for a long time. We may get surprising discoveries of intense corruption at the highest levels. There may be incidents that happen on a global scale that will be shocking but will end up bringing those that have operated independently in cooperatively working together to achieve a common goal. What is important is not to judge, blame, or get caught up in the drama but practice neutrality and acceptance of a much larger picture that is in fact moving us as a planet in the right direction.

Solar technology and communication are the focus right now. There will be lots of posturing, pay offs, scandals, discussions, lobbying, attempted controls etc. in these areas. Also the young soul playground of espionage and spying is beginning to crumble as this ridiculous idea of hidden information is demystified. It will take some time but we are moving in the direction of sharing, cooperation and relationship; not separatism, competition and isolation.


October 1-7: Watch for reactions, especially emotional ones that may hit you for no apparent reason. You may surprise yourself with the intensity of feelings that are triggered by some word or action. Pay attention to and be present with what is coming up without needing to analyze. Some of what you are feeling could be very deep and old and seem totally unrelated to the present, but if it is coming up now, it is related in some way to how you are creating and living your life. This first part of the month is the time of discovery, uncovering the veil, and of allowing deep wounds to surface to be healed. The theme of the relationship between the masculine and feminine within ourselves is featured as a part of this discovery. Wounds of the feminine and wounds of the masculine have a chance to be exposed, processed and healed. This is just the beginning of this big work and it will continue. Take responsibility for your reactions and be careful not to blame, overdramatize or judge. Use your experiences to move yourself into a state of higher consciousness through the higher centers and your own sensitivity. Welcome the intensity. Don't turn away from it.

October 7: A super New Moon is at 12:45 PM Mountain Daylight Time. This new moon supports compassion, forgiveness and healing. This is a good time to recapitulate memories, events and people in your life who still evoke resentment, anger, hurt, jealousy and blame. These negatively charged reactions need to be neutralized and this new moon can support you in doing that. For every charged memory breathe in compassion and forgiveness while turning your head all the way to the left. Then turn your head all the way to the right while exhaling gratitude neutrality and freedom.

October 8-15: This is a time for support and community. Relationships flourish and new levels of intimacy and essence connection are possible. It will become intensely obvious if you are not with the right person or if you have entered a community or partnership that is wrong for you. There is a desire to be more social, connected, involved and engaged. This is a time when the senses are heightened and the expressions of joy, love, humor, happiness, gratitude and satisfaction can be augmented by the higher centers. The positive is just as contagious as the negative so be disciplined here against any negativity or mind chatter that tries to derail you. Allow yourself to do the things that make you happy. Increase your ability to have by gifting yourself something you have always wanted with love and generosity. This is an important time of re imprinting ourselves to receive with gratitude the gifts of spirit. Be receptive and allowing, with the intention that good things will come your way. And then trust that it will be so.

October 16-23: You have by now hopefully learned to navigate the waters of this increase in energy and intensity. This is a time of finding balance and implementing practices that will keep you balanced on a daily basis. Find balance between your time alone and your time with others. Find balance between being receptive (more feminine) and actively doing (more masculine). Find balance between work, play, study and rest. The end result should give you more neutrality, less stress and a sense of well-being. This is also a time where you should anchor your practices and resolve to eliminate all energy leaks and negative thinking. It is still wise not to engage in drama or any negative reactions to the intensity that may be occurring around you. Also continue to practice presence and to be aware of what you say, think and do. The high intensity will begin to calm down as we approach the full moon time. It is not so much that things get less intense, but rather that we have gotten used to the intensity and have integrated this increased vibration into our consciousness. It is akin to climbing a staircase and reaching a platform where you can rest and take a breath before climbing to the next level.

October 22: Full Moon is at 7:38 PM Mountain Daylight Time. This full moon signifies a shift in direction for the intensity of the month. Beware of suddenly feeling depressed, discouraged, shut down, off balance, lethargic or unmotivated. Be neutral about how the intensity is showing up and take advantage of the letting up of the constant pressure we have been under. There is a quality of the deep feminine void to this full moon that is best when embraced and not resisted. Take a break, waste some time, spend the day in bed, read, relax, be in nature and allow yourself some down time even if you think you don't need it. A good day to do absolutely nothing and to be affected by absolutely nothing. Practice gratitude and awareness and be present.

October 24-31: A time for sorting what's yours and what isn't; what's complete and what isn't; what's right and what isn't; what's in balance and what isn't; where you are neutral and where you are not; where you are satisfied and where you are not. Observe and take action. Everything you do and decide to do this month is magnified in its power and intensity. Don't take anything for granted and take responsibility for what you create. Continue your practices, take care of your body and set all positive new things into motion. The highlight of this time frame is manifesting. You get to see and experience exactly what you create. This can occur almost instantly. So as you sort, set intentions about how you will balance or set right what isn't. Be proactive during this time and you will get results.

Have a great month!
