Today is Martin Luther King’s Day.

A remembrance of a hero.

A revolutionary.

A dedicated leader of love, peace and hope.

Hope. What is hope? The belief that things will turn out fine. The trust that we are on the right path. The inner knowing that things happen the way they were meant to, for a reason – and the reason is for our Highest Good. Hope is a beautiful and such a powerful feeling. Without hope, there is despair. Without hope the world looks gray, violent, scary… Without hope the future looks dark. Where are we heading? Despair makes us think that everything is getting worse. And that there is nothing we can do about it.

I have been reading a lot of hopeless articles lately on social media. Especially since Trump got elected. The situation on Earth is… well, tense, to say at least. There are revolutions in many countries, there is war, suffering, pain, death… And especially injustice.

What is the purpose of all this you might ask? Well, from an astrological point of view, we are moving into the Age of Aquarius. Aquarius stands for equality, community, justice, humanity, out-of-the box thinking, futuristic inventions, rebellion, revolution, awareness, evolution...

...a coming together and uniting in peace.

The opposite sign of Aquarius, the energy that we are opposing, is Leo. The sign of the elite, of luxury, royalty, special treatments. This is why leaderships are changing, why people are standing up for their rights. This is why more and more secrets are coming out where we become aware of who is actually controlling history (have you ever noticed that it’s called “history” and not “herstory” or “ourstory”?;).

It is now time for us as humans to look into the mirror and realize how our actions have been causing suffering and pain for others. Before we judge others for their actions it’s time to look at our own. Yes, the elite has control over media outlets, governments, financial systems and more. But it’s up to us if we make ourselves depended on these things. When we stand up for what we believe, we have the power to change. We start by changing ourselves, changing our habits, our thought patterns, the way we connect with others, the way we think about the world and ourselves.

When we see ourselves as infinite beings full of love, power and wisdom, experiencing a human lifetime, growing through challenges, taking on opportunities, living from our heart and enjoying the moments... When we realize that we are all coming from the same source, no matter our gender, race, nation, religion, or any other box...

Then we are inspiring others to change their lives and meanwhile we are attracting more experiences and people our way who are helping us on our path. When we change ourselves, we change our reality. Despite what anyone might say, we do have the power to change the world. Individually from the inside and Together from the outside.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King for your service here on Earth. You are an inspiration. You have changed the world with your hope, thoughts and words (isn’t it interesting that he got shot in his throat? – the throat chakra governs our communication).

Thank you to all revolutionaries, to the rebels, the ones who dance to their own beat, the ones who think outside the box, the ones who follow their heart, the ones who connect with their true self and spread love and light into the world.

I would like to end this post with the words of Bob Marley, another wonderful revolutionary:

“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;

None but ourselves can free our minds.

Have no fear for atomic energy,

'Cause none of them can stop the time.

How long shall they kill our prophets,

While we stand aside and look?”

What does hope mean to you? Who is your favorite revolutionary? Where do you live outside of the box and go against the stream?

Love & Peace,
