June is a month which brings uf massive shifts ~ a month to expect the Unexpected every day. It's a powerful month of completion in which we will release many old ways of doing things and let go of long held responsibilities so we can create the space for exciting new opportunities that we couldn't envision before. In June, huge intense waves are bringing changes that will push us out of our past and expand our reality.
June brings sparkles of Greater Trueness emanating from the New Reality of AN. These are like starlights which suddenly appear glimmering on the surface of a lake. Starting mid month, there will be a surge of visible sparkles that appear at the periphery of our vision, then move closer to us. All month long, the New Reality will become stronger and increasingly visible to more and more people.
There's an old Spanish folk tale from Argentina called "La Vaca" which was later published as "Once upon a Cow" by Dr. Camilo Cruz and became very well known. (If you wish to read the full story, it is available for download in Spanish and English on iBooks and Amazon Kindle.)
This story is very appropriate for the time we are in. Here is a very brief summary of "La Vaca".
"Once a Wise Master and his young disciple were on a long journey. Late in the afternoon, they arrived at a small, shabby hut of a very poor family. The father invited them to stay for the night, if they didn't mind sharing the small space with the impoverished family of eight. The Wise Master noticed that in this family everything revolved around the single cow they owned. Their neighbors looked up to them because they owned a cow and all of the family's conversations and actions revolved around how the cow was doing. Had it eaten enough today? Did it receive enough water? Did someone take it out to pasture? Has the cow been milked? Was it tied securely for the night? Yet, the small amount of milk the cow provided them was hardly enough to keep everyone alive.
The Wise Master and his disciple slept together with the family on the floor of the small hut and got up quite early the next morning ~ well before the dawn ~ while the family was still sleeping. Before they left, they went behind the house to the place where the cow was tied. Then the Wise Master pulled out his dagger ~ and unexpectedly killed the family cow! The disciple was in a state of absolute shock and could not believe what he had just seen. "Master, what have you done?" he cried. "This cow was the only possession of this poor family! How will they survive without it?" Without an answer, the Master quietly walked away, and they continued their journey.
A year later, the Wise Master and his disciple returned to the same area. They looked around, but could not find the small hut of the impoverished family. Finally, they discovered that where the old shack had been, now stood a newer, much nicer house. The father of the family came out of the house to greet them, clearly in a much better condition than a year ago. He wore clean clothes and had a smile on his face. He told them how desperate they had been when the cow was found dead. "But then we realized that we had to do something, if we didn't want to starve to death. So we immediately cleared some land behind the house and planted some vegetables. Soon, we could eat well and survive from our harvest, and since the plants grew so well, we also had extra vegetables to sell to our neighbors and then more to sell in the market in the village. 
So finally we had some money, and then even more money came in, until we could afford to build this new house...."
I love this story because we all have a cow in our lives, in some form or another. Our cow is something that we deem essential to our survival, but it is actually something that holds us back. Once we recognize what represents the cow in our life, we can't imagine surviving without it. Most often, our cow symbolizes something that we cannot consider letting go of because we identify it with our financial security. Our cow feels irreplaceable and we cannot currently envision what could possibly take its place. We feel that our cow actually defines who we are. 
Our cow also represents the excuses we make to ourselves (and others) why we can't make the changes we most desire in our life. If we somehow lost our cow, we really don't know how we could survive.
Yet, guess what! Right now we are in a time in which we need to let go of our old holy cows. This is a scary thing to do as there is no visible certainty that this will be to our benefit. Sometimes, our cow is killed for us ~ just like in this story. We get laid off from our job or the landlord sells the place where we have been living and we suddenly have to move or our partner unexpectedly leaves the relationship. Something unexpected happens which we perceive as an unfortunate setback, which actually turns out to be a huge blessing in disguise.
Sometimes, we are the ones who need to release our cow and it's not easy to let go of our known security in such a time of great uncertainty. This voluntarily letting go feels much harder to do, yet, we are in a time of FORCED CHANGE. This means that change in our lives is required right now. CHANGE WE MUST ~ one way or another! We may not like it; we may be frightened of the consequences, but letting go of our cow right now is for our ultimate benefit.
Once we decide to let go of our cow, we don't need to try to replace it with another animal. (Things such as, "I'll quit my job in this restaurant and try to quickly find a new job in another restaurant.) Instead, it's like, "I'm going to let go of this thing that I think that I really need without knowing what's going to take its place." But at the same time, we know that we no longer have the option to keep it. FORCED CHANGE is at hand! Knowing this gives us a kind of weird, gutsy courage.
We also know that we have to release the cows in the collective before we can all evolve to the next level. At this point, this feels infinitely more challenging. What if everyone had to get rid of their televisions by tomorrow so that the planet could evolve? How many people could, or would, be willing to do that? Just put it outside on the street. And that's only a television, not our most needed cow!
This FORCED CHANGE that is happening now gives us a strong knock into the right direction. It frees up much creative energy that was previously blocked by our continual focus on the care of our cow. It moves us right through the central nucleus of our fears, bursting them apart like a laser beam, and thrusts us into the Great Unknown.
We have to let go of our cow ~ both individually and collectively ~ but we can't do it on a collective level until we do it within our own lives. When we finally do this, we will experience a huge burst of creativity and abundance coming into our lives. This is when we realize that carefully guarding our cow in the narrow, old ways was what actually kept abundance away from us.
Letting go of our cow shifts everything onto a totally different map. We move into a completely expanded, New Reality that is bright, fresh and full of promise. We can't see how any of the details of how this will manifest in our lives until we actually release our cow. Until then, we will continue to have the feeling that we've got to keep our cow, because we know from our prior experience that with this cow, we can survive.
After releasing our cow, we don't always have to do something totally different. We may or may not; this cannot be seen from our present vantage point. It can just be moving into an expanded configuration. For example: If you are a carpenter specializing in windows and you have been making windows for years ~ and you always get steady jobs making windows, you might feel that window making has expired and is no longer fulfilling. You may have unexpressed longings to do something else, but not yet know what it is. Yet, you know that if you stop making windows, you might not get any more work ~ and window making is how you pay your bills. What to do?
The answer is go right through the center of your fears and insecurities and decide to stop making normal windows. It's only after you do this that you will be able to see what lies ahead. You may never make windows again or you may start making absolutely exquisite windows that are entry points to the New Reality. And even though there are no physical signs of how our next step will manifest at this point, IT WILL BE THERE when we are ready for it!
