Mercury Retrograde Newsletter

SMILE, AS WE PLOD THROUGH IT & STAY THE COURSE–

HEY NOW, Al Manning would say, ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM, which was his pet phony Latin Phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Al’s humor makes me smile! This has become one of my favorite phrases, as I like to encourage myself to keep going. We must persevere, in spite of whatever comes our way. Though it ain’t easy, we still have to do our best to transcend all the __________, if our intent is to survive on our way to thriving. So let us be bathed in the LIGHT & GRACE of SPIRIT which will uplift us above the obstacles.

THANKS for your Friendship, through the Years!

 

 

In the ESP LAB we say, “Thanks for your Love, Friendship, and Help.”  Today, I am adding, “through the years.”  Personally, I start a new year with Winter Solstice, as it is the beginning of a new solar year, as the LIGHT RETURNS.  Then much of the world celebrates the Roman Calendar, and we whoop and holler as we turn the page on ye olde year.  Soon thereafter, China celebrates its New Year, beginning on the new moon in February on the 10th— this one in the year of the auspicious Dragon.  Historically, Dragon years are said to represent good luck, justice, prosperity, and strength. Let us claim our share as we turn the pages of the past into the new.

THANKS GIVING AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE!

 

I love to start my day with Thanksgiving. I believe as we count our good fortunes it attracts blessings.  Al would say what we give our attention multiplies.  I also like to count my blessings during times of challenge and emotional distress. It changes the channel from counting disturbances to counting joys.  I typically start my morning with “Thank you Father for a day.”  I am then thankful for birds that sing as I watch them fly through the sanctuary skies against a backdrop of beautiful mountains.

I am thoughtful of the magnificence of nature and the amazing power of Divine Forces to create and shape our material reality giving me the benefit of each breath. I am thankful for a hot cup of good coffee and I celebrate life with dogs and friends.

I SHALL NOT WANT!

 

 

     “I SHALL NOT WANT!”

    By Sami MERLYN, DD

     Hello dear friends of ESP LAB— thank you for your participation and support. Your ongoing interest keeps our organization alive. XOXOXO!

     

     It has been some challenging times for us folks on planet earth with economic, health, and political challenges.  “Tell me about it!” You may add. With the recent Solar Eclipse, the primal man within thinks the Dragon has swallowed the life source.  With very challenged Mars and Pluto energies some of our world has slipped into war.  It is easy to lose faith and let the dark side get to you.  However, we must be strong, through accessing the spiritual and peaceful side of the things and lift our spirit and consciousness to a higher level.

KEEP HAVING FUN As We PLOD THROUGH IT!!

 

OCTOBER HARVEST NEWS!!

I sent a version of this letter out a few weeks ago to a few Lab members… I am going to modify and use again, as we are on the same theme of PEACE, PROTECTION, POWER NOW with prosperity!     

 

Al Manning used to say, “ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM”, which was his pet phony Latin Phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” One way to transcend is to have FUN! FUN brightens your chakras and chases away evil. Another method is “TUNE INTO THE BEAUTY OF NATURE!!”  Al Manning in his light course said, “We all remember the legend of the “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” That’s a gross understatement!

Eyes to the sky this week to see the super-rare Perigee Blue Moon

 

We haven’t seen a Full Moon like this one in over 27 years, and we won’t see another one until the 22nd century!

2023 has a “bonus” Full Moon and it rises on the night of August 30-31.

In any given calendar year, there are typically 12 Full Moons — one occurring in each month. Every once in awhile, though, due to the exact timing of when the Full Moons occur, we get an extra one. That means we have a total of 13 Full Moons for the year, one during each of 11 months, and one month with two.

Since we only have 12 popular names for the Full Moons, the extra one goes nameless. Thus we call it a Blue Moon.

HAVE FUN AS WE PLOD THROUGH IT WITH A FUN VISION OF PAN!!

 

Venus is RETRO!!  until Sept 4th, 2023     Mercury goes Retro Aug 23rd to Sept 15th 2023   NEW MOON Today August 16th v/c in LEO

 

HEY NOW, as Al Manning would say, “ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM”, which was his pet phony Latin Phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” One way to transcend is to have fun!  Another is TUNE INTO THE BEAUTY OF NATURE!!  Al Manning in his light course said, “We all remember the legend of the “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” That’s a gross understatement! The secrets of life itself are wrapped up in that rainbow. Today we tune into GREEN AS THE MIDDLE COLOR OF THE RAINBOW– THE POINT OF BALANCE AND PEACE.

                                             PLOD THROUGH IT!  STAY THE COURSE!!

                                 By Sami MERLYN, DD

     

HEY NOW, as Al Manning would say, illigitimi non carborundum, which was his pet phony Latin Phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” As I write this, VENUS is Retrograde… and the good news is we are plodding through it and since it went Retro July 22nd, we are making our way through these challenging times! Venus Retro only happens every year and a half, and since the goddess of LOVE affects all life, for her to go on vacation for six weeks is challenging.  The tendency is for folks to be dissatisfied, emotional and want a change.  The admonition is to “stay the course” and not make major changes.

FULL MOON June 2023 In Sag

 

 

Spring is here!   Summer is near!

PEACE, POWER, PROTECTION NOW

PERSEVERE as we plod through it!

              By Sami MERLYN, DD   

 Wow—it has been some challenging times for us folks on planet earth with economic, health, and political challenges.  We have all been impacted.  Of course, we want to do our best to limit the negative energy from harming us personally and minimize its influences.  Time to continue putting on “the whole armor of God.”  Transcend it all as we count our blessings and TURN TO THE LIGHT!!

       Let us stay on our spiral of growth as we meditate, pray, affirm and keep our auras and chakras bright with light!  Let’s tune in!  Let’s hold positive constructive thoughts to transcend any pain or suffering we might experience—as we accept Good Fortune as our law of life!

Mercury turned Retrograde on April 21st

    Spiritual Science & ESP LAB     SPRING   2023

Mercury turned Retrograde yesterday on April 21st and until May 14th, 2023. Remember the 5 P’s of Mercury Retrograde: Planning, Patience, Perseverance, Pruning and Plod through it.

My personal Mercury Retro Survival Plan:

1) don’t panic.

2) say less not more.

3) stay in your spiritual center.

4) be patient with all communications.

5) prune all unnecessary activity – especially travel plans and new projects.

6) avoid new purchases – especially computers, automobiles, and electronic devices. 7) know that this aspect has a beginning, a middle, and an end… keep plodding through it, with PERSEVERANCE.

8) don’t quit your job, change your friends, or your location – save this for better times.
