There Are No New Inventions in the Universe – The Invention Already Exists. Opening the Channel is the Creative Act.
My friend and I were talking about frequencies.. It began with him hearing a song in something, and I said the dishwasher always sounds like a jungle drum beat to me, that if I’m washing some pans by hand and cleaning the kitchen with the dishwasher noise in the background, I find my thoughts getting more and more animated and intense, and then I realize it’s the soundtrack and I laugh and stop being affected by it that way. “I wonder if there’s a whole planet of aliens who just come up with dishwasher frequencies and they get points for what it does to the frequency of the humans around it, and each dishwasher brand has a unique frequency. ‘My dishwasher makes them have intense thoughts!’ ‘My dishwasher relaxes them!'”
And we’re laughing. I say, “So a planet that invents frequencies… actually I hadn’t thought of frequencies being created. I wonder about that. I just know they exist.”
If I had all the foresight this Aquarius Moon has afforded me I would have seen this was a Full Moon post in the making. But a few synchronicities later, it has come down this – I really want to talk about “Higher Mind” and what that means and what are a few ways to access it.
Higher Mind is a function, astrologically, of Aquarius and Uranus. I don’t think of it as something that a person owns or possesses, but rather it’s like a place. It’s related to the myth of Prometheus who takes fire from Mount Olympus and brings it down to Earth. Higher Mind is a place where one can reach into and pull from. However, the process of grounding or distilling insights from Higher Mind after is what makes the trips to this land practical and translatable to life, rather than just really wacky or off-base/getting too far out. Not that all people to have invented things were spared the sense (at least perceived outwardly) of being too far out. But there is a line to be drawn somewhere, and that is related to whether or not the idea that has been gained from the expedition to Higher Mind is translated, or communicated relationally.
As this conversation with my friend went on, he said, “You know there was some guy talking about this thing called radio waves… radio waves didn’t exist before he started coming up with it and designing it. Some alien on planet frequency saw what he was thinking and began to start making radio waves.”
Then I got excited. “That was Higher Mind!” and began excitedly telling him what I think of Higher Mind and Aquarius… essentially that there are no new inventions in the Universe, everything already exists, and Higher Mind is just the plane they exist in before they are brought here.
If Higher Mind is a place outside of you, you don’t take it personally what you’re able or not able to create. You just think of yourself as getting in alignment with the gold mine that exists and always has. It starts out one day as a vague yearning, but the more and more it is delved into, the clearer it becomes.
“Some 2,600 years ago the ancient Greek poet Pindar wrote, “Become who you are by learning who you are.” What he meant is the following: You are born with a particular makeup and tendencies that mark you as a piece of fate. It is who you are to the core. Some people never become who they are; they stop trusting in themselves; they conform to the tastes of others, and they end up wearing a mask that hides their true nature. If you allow yourself to learn who you really are by paying attention to that voice and force within you, then you can become what you were fated to become—an individual, a Master.”
“At your birth a seed is planted. That seed is your uniqueness. It wants to grow, transform itself, and flower to its full potential. It has a natural, assertive energy to it. Your Life’s Task is to bring that seed to flower, to express your uniqueness through your work. You have a destiny to fulfill. The stronger you feel and maintain it–as a force, a voice or in whatever form– the greater your chance of fulfilling this Life’s Task and achieving mastery.”

The channel that one accesses Higher Mind from takes into account the polarity of Aquarius: LEO. Each person’s creativity, and what naturally excites and fascinates them, is a lead to their own channel to Higher Mind. We all come wired with immense potential. And the beauty of it is that we are naturally inclined to feel happy, excited, and childlike even, as we are doing the things we love. When we take our heart-centered/creative passions to their most individuated end, we can tap into innovation that ends up benefiting humanity as a whole.
Intellect that Nourishes the Heart
Another beautiful aspect of this Full Moon has been the potential to discover insights that bring us closer to feeling home with everything itself… that the intellect does not have to be at odds with the heart, but can inform the heart too. Personally that is something I resonate with, as I’ve found often times in life it’s been a philosophy or an idea that has helped me open my heart where it had before been closed, and the idea changes me then and continuing on afterward. I got a better sense of my own philosophy during this Full Moon and how I want to use it. I really am interested in tapping into ideas that open the heart. All my life I’ve felt sensitive to the way that the intellect is considered a hindrance on living somehow, when it’s just a language. I seek to build a bridge between the intellect and the heart through astrology, as astrology really is a beautiful vessel for all kinds of awarenesses.
