Heal Your Life: The New Moon of Taurus
The extraordinary healing energy of Taurus is available to everyone this month. But what does it mean to have healing consciousness? And how can we put that consciousness into action to create real healing in our lives?
Tonight, April 10, we enter the second month of the astrological calendar, Taurus. In Hebrew, it is known as the month of Iyar, which stands for the words “Ani Hashem Rofecha” and means “I am God, your Healer.”
To connect to the healing energy of Taurus, there are three steps in consciousness we can take this month:
1. Not accepting chaos as a normal part of our reality
God created us to have healthy and happy lives. Good health is normal; sickness, illness, disease is not. We’ve come to expect the opposite though and are comfortable with chaos as random events that we feel we have little control over.
2. Taking responsibility for the current state of our lives
The only way to regain control now is to accept that we created our physical, spiritual, mental and emotional situations in the first place. When you are the driver in your life, then you can decide to make a u-turn. Taking responsibility isn’t about fault, guilt or shame. It’s simply recognizing that life is a chain of cause and effect. It’s realizing I am the cause, and knowingly or not, I planted seeds that have created my circumstances. In the moment that I accept that I am the creator, I awaken the unlimited power within me to create healing energy and plant new seeds.
There is an unlimited power within us that gives us life and heals us. It’s the divine power that joins an egg and sperm, creates trillions of cells and flows through our body pumping blood and performing a thousand other functions! Sometimes we block this life force through our own negativity. We need to get out of the way and let the Light flow with ease, rather than dis-ease.
3. Changing our physical reality by changing our thoughts
Curing our lives of dis-ease starts with cleansing our thoughts, as Kabbalist Rav Berg explains in the introduction to the spiritual text of Kabbalah, The Zohar:
Misfortune and illness are not considered separate and apart from thoughts. Our minds, bodies, thoughts, and environments are inseparable. Therefore, we must treat thought more than the disease itself. We must treat the entire thought process that is instrumental in bringing about the disease in the first place. We must also realize that the thoughts of others can cause some form of disease within our bodies. Our states of mind can make ourselves and others well and can speed recovery from illness. We have the power to heal and the power to remain well.
Thoughts are real, and they directly affect our body. In the book Evolve Your Brain, Dr. Joe Dispenza speaks about a new field of science called psychoneuroimmunology, which directly demonstrates the connection between the mind and the body. Basically, every thought produces a biochemical reaction in the brain that is then transmitted to the body. For more information, Rav Berg further explores this scientific truth of mind of matter in his book Nano.
Back to Action!
Change your thoughts, heal your body. Easier said then done. To start, time to discover the patterns of your thoughts - victim consciousness, me me me syndrome, fear, worry, doubt, denial - and break them. Most of our thoughts are about ourselves. Ask the Light force to shine through you to others. Ask what you can do for someone else. If you are physically limited, you can mentally send healing energy to others.
Interesting fact: For a body to be healthy, it needs to be oxygenated. The more a body moves, the more oxygen it has. Ironically, Taurus is characterized by a desire for comfort and lack of movement. To tap into the healing energy of Taurus, we must transform that energy and move! The more uncomfortable our acts of sharing are, the greater Light we will reveal.

I had a friend that was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She identified her jealous thoughts and selfish acts. She went outside of herself to volunteer and share with strangers. She is now 3 years cancer-free!
You can heal yourself too! I wish for all of us a month of taking charge, mental cleansing, uncomfortable sharing and all-around healing.
