Had a Car Accident Lately?
I'd like to put the ... on car ... in a ... ... way, so you can heal ... It makes me angry to see people walk away from one accident only to have another a few years l I'd like to put the spotlight on car accidents in a noncritical, observant way, so you can heal yourself. It makes me angry to see people walk away from one accident only to have another a few years later. As a healer, I don't like to see people in pain. And if you've been in an accident, you know the aftermath of shock, rage and terror, sometimes resulting in post traumatic shock syndrome. Why go through this experience again? Let's get things like this out of our lives. Let's take control of our personal energy. Here's the way. The universe is mental. It responds to you the way you think it will. The laws of physics are neutral. One plus one equals two and if you push your glass off the table it will fall to floor whether you are an average person, an enlightened person, a genius, a two year old in a highchair or eating your last meal on death row. The laws of metaphysics are neutral, too. We study them so we can use them to our advantage. They don't care how they are used. Please understand, in a mathematical universe, there are no accidents. The second principle is, there are no victims of accidents. Everyone is a volunteer. For this reason, I'm going to switch from victim and perpetrator to the projecting driver (perpetrator) and attracting driver (victim). These principles may be new to you but if they're stirring something inside, read on. It's hard to contemplate when one has just been rear-ended, or -- in the case of a woman I know, broadsided nearly to death -- but this is no accident. Instead, this is a highly synchronized meeting of two people on the same wave length at precisely the same moment. What are the odds that the two of you would meet at the exact same moment in time and space? Astronomical, wouldn't you say? You can change your energy. You can be safe on the road, on a plane and in an airport. There is power in what I'm going to tell you. State of mind is what determines our wavelength. Actually, we have two minds: the rational and the higher mind. Normally we operate in the lower mind which has two parts: the negative and the positive. These tellk us why we should and shouldnÂt do things but a decision is not forthcoming. It is the higher mind (the creative mind) which really determines our course in life. The higher mind is described in the astrology chart - our human version of it -- by the 9th house. It's called the place of long distance travel and it describes driving on the freeway as against tooling around the neighborhood. It's also the house of meditation because it is the long distance use of the mind -- far seeing, prophetic, intuitive, looking for patterns .... If you drive on the freeway, you're in a meditative state of consciousness at least part of the time whether you realize it or not. To drive on the freeway, we look for patterns and spaces. I've read for many people in my 25 years as an intuitive consultant, astrologer and spiritual teacher/healer. I've talked to people from their hospital bed and I learned a lot about this kind of energy during the years. I have read for a man who wrecked his own car and then totaled the rental car the very next day. He had no insurance and had bought none with the rental. I read for a girl who knew she would someday drive off a bridge and did so. This girl is now in a wheel chair for life. I am writing this article to wake people up! The states of mind I feel put us on a collision course with a projective driver are these: ÂRepressed hostility, anger or rage ÂRepressed hostility, anger or rage ÂVictim mentality ÂTrying to do more than one thing at a time (multitasking) ÂBeing rushed or being late ÂOverextended lifestyle ÂTalking on the cell phone ÂSeparation from self through over activity and busy-ness (super mom) ÂLiving entirely outside the self, causing deep depression, self loathing, self hatred and even self destructive tendencies Let's take a closer look at each of these. ÂREPRESSED HOSTILITY, ANGER OR RAGE If you aren't expressing your own emotions, someone will come right over and do it for you. Or do it to you, I should say. Some of the "nicest" and "sweetest" people in the world are involved in collisions for this very reason. If they weren't so nice or so sweet, they might have been safer. There are many socially acceptable ways to get out the aggressions we all feel (yes, even the nice and sweet ones). Please pick one and use it regularly. ÂVICTIM MENTALITY People with victim mentalities are accidents waiting to happen. Why is it the same people are robbed twice, rear ended twice, even raped twice? Get out of the victim position. Go on a victim-free diet for three months. Do not read about, listen to stories about, watch movies or television shows, sympathize with or even think about any people or animals who are victims. If someone tries to tell you a victim story, get up and leave! ÂTRYING TO DO MORE THAN ONE THING AT A TIME (MULTITASKING) Have you ever tried to rub your head with one hand and pat your stomach with the other? A recent article on MSN Internet revealed that people eat, smoke, read, shave, apply makeup and have sex while driving. Multitasking is becoming a way of life for some people and these are some of the most likely people, unfortunately, I'll peg for accidents in the years ahead. ÂBEING RUSHED AND IN A HURRY Being rushed and in a hurry already has us out of syncÂ
with ourselves. When we are out of sync with ourselves, we are out of touch with good timing in all matters. Many people who "run late" accompany this habit with a state of mind involving "Why do you do this? When are you going to learn? It's so rude to be late! You are so inconsiderate! Why did you have to make that last phone call? Can't you ever just be on time? Â
" Stop the chatter. If you're late, you're late. Get there alive. ÂOVEREXTENDED LIFESTYLE We are holistic beings in spite of ourselves. We are absolutely consistent in our behavior across the full range of our activities. If you doubt this, take some time to observe others first, because it's easier, and then yourself. If someone eats fast and unconsciously, they also drive fast and unconsciously. And their sex is that way too! ÂTALKING ON THE CELL PHONE Talking on the cell phone is a function of the lower or rational mind. Driving on the freeway, as we know from earlier in the article, is a function of the higher or indifferent mind. These two minds canÂt work together. ItÂs that simple. ÂSEPARATION FROM SELF THROUGH OVER ACTIVITY AND BUSY-NESS (SUPERMOM) What happens when you have an accident? You wind up flat on your back for awhile, staring at the wall and wondering how this could have happened to you? Well, productively, let's concentrate on the first half of the sentence rather than the last. When was the last time you sat around and did nothing? Accidents happen to many people who are so out of touch it takes a zap from the universe to get them back together with themselves for a little quality time. Many people grow to see their accidents as one of the best things that could have happened because it forced them to stop and think about where they were headed in their lives and to touch in with what's really important, especially in serious accidents where one's whole life flashes before them. Skip the part about the accident and promise that you'll spend mortime with yourself. ÂLIVING ENTIRELY OUTSIDE THE SELF, CAUSING DEEP DEPRESSION, SELF LOATHING, SELF HATRED AND SELF DESTRUCTION I'm going to tell you a story that will convince you how serious this section is but first, let's review what we know about being true to ourselves. Simply put, nothing is more important than finding who you are and being that person. I or any astrologer can certainly help you with this. Few of us escaped the conditioning of early childhood and school years that may have encouraged us to ignore our true selves and conform to family or society's expectations. As adults, we want to uncover our authentic selves. The astrology chart is the most faithful blueprint I know for revealing the authentic self. Not only is it the most stressful thing in the world to try to be something we're not (and I mean this neutrally not critically), it is offensive at some level to the part of us that is whole. There is something in us that, when split off from our whole self, revolts and takes revenge. When I first began reading, 25 years ago, I had a client who often called with what were very insignificant problems but I knew something was brewing in the background. Her calls were about the brand new home which had a few little deficiencies. Her husband was slow in putting in the new sod. And her sister-in-law was very depressed although she, too, had a wealthy husband, new home and was expecting a second baby in a few months. This client didn't call very often and would limit the calls to these few items. I never had a chance to get very far with her. One day much to my horror she called to tell me her sister-in-law had been hit head on by a semi. She and the baby (in utero) were killed instantly. Policemen deal with people at a very basic level just like psychics and intuitive consultants. TI mean by this that people will lie on Gallup polls and psychological research interviews but not in situations where police and psychics find them. Police call this sort of thing in their line of work, "suicide by cop", a phenomenon which I expect from O. J. Simpson one of these days. He has Saturn in the 12th house. Be that as it may be, this young woman found a tragic way out of her predicament. Was this her fate? No! She could have healed herself. But sometimes -- and I say this with more love in my heart than many people can feel for themselves at certain times -- they would literally rather die than change. If you are desperately unhappy in your life, your marriage, your job, there is a projective driver who will subconsciously drift to that energy and fulfill your deadly wishes. This is a horrifying and very real possibility. Please wake up! You can heal yourself. When we are as depressed as this young woman, something wants to die, yes, but it does not involve the physical body. We are dying to old ways to thinking, believing, acting. Perhaps we are dying to a whole way of life. Or our old way of life has died. But it is a psychic death that is taking place. None of this is meant to involve the physical body Here are some astrological energies that are associated with car accidents. Remember that you always have free will as to how you use these energies. ÂMARS/URANUS Mars in square or opposition to Uranus is the "accident prone" aspect. Usually the person is moving too quickly for circumstances. Also these people react poorly to being boxed in by traffic. ÂGEMINI PLANETARY ENERGIES Gemini planetary energies means having Gemini prominent in your chart (Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn) or having important placements like the Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in your 3rd house. A recent Survey by SunCorp which studied 160,000 accident claims over a three year period by sun sign showed Geminis as the worst drivers. They speculated this was because Geminis are distracted and impatient when things move too slowly. ÂTAURUS AND PISCES PLANETARY ENERGIES Pisces and Taurus planetary energies means important placements such as Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in one of these signs, or in the 2nd or 12th houses. Taurus and Pisces are the two archetypal energies that tend most to live in their own little world. This is lovely and fine when you're home cleaning the garage, washing the car, balancing the checkbook, watching your favorite video or writing in your journal. Driving on the freeway is an extremely complex social and abstract conceptual activity which also involves hand/eye coordination. ÂLIBRA PLANETARY ENERGIES Libra planetary energies means important placements such as Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in Libra or in the 7th house. These energies often present passive aggressive personality dynamics (seething with resentment?) that is very attractive to projective drivers. ÂPLUTO ON THE NORTH NODE Pluto on the North Node or by transit is always a little bit tricky. If you're looking for a way out of the responsibility of living your authentic life -- it is rigorous and difficult to be thoroughly alive -- Pluto has a seductive side to it. It has a way of darkly fulfilling idle and foolish wishes through the powers of the subconscious. I have seen people live through amazing accidents only to die in a very mundane way at the next possible opportunity. Presumably, this was their wish. Pluto invites transformation and does not necessarily mean to involve the physical body but sometimes there is a misunderstanding in the ego of the individual. Tow truck drivers, like policemen and psychics, interact with people right after extreme car accidents. I once had a revealing conversation with a tow truck driver who was driving me back to my house. We passed a stretch in the road where there have been many fatal accidents. We both agreed that there was a black hole kind of energy which gathered around places where fatal accidents had occurred and which actually began to build up. "Dead Man's Curve" was a popular song when I was a teenager. The grim reality is that if you pass through one of these places while you are unconscious, you can be pulled off into the void. Please don't be alarmed by this reality. If you're alive to read this article, you've already driven safely through at least one of these places. Always drive alert and always give yourself a reason to be alive. If you are unhappy in any area of your life, do something about it, no matter how difficult. IÂve given several important things not to do , now IÂll give you two important things always to do: Âgive yourself a reason to live; and Âstay conscious to that fact.
