Happy Hot Days of Summer!
Wow, the Summer is moving quickly, our nights are getting longer and the heat is HOT! I enJOY the summer, and this year due to the unusually warm winter, I’ve been able to do what I love most, which is swim in the Lake which is about a 3-4 minute walk from my home! I also enJOYed a fabulous day with Nancy Arruda on her Lake where we discussed what is happening for the rest of the summer with eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde happening at the end of the month. She will be sharing it in an interview coming Aug 10th. You won’t want to miss it! We’ll discuss this month and Sept!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
WE start the Month of August with the theme of playfulness with the New Moon in the sign of Leo on August 2nd. New Moons are about new beginnings, and this particular new moon is asking all of us to tap into our self expression. How can you BE more spontaneous? Allow yourself the ability to tap into child like innocence.
Its corresponding Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse which takes place in the sign of Aquarius on August 18th. Lunar eclipses are all about letting go and clearing away what no longer serves. As we have been on a journey of acknowledging the truth the last few months, this lunar eclipse will continue to assist one on that journey as we continue to release the illusions or untruth. We are focusing on the logical path using mental efficiency. The clearing is that of illusions, as we are still feeling the confusion and disillusionment of Saturn square Neptune (which has its final hit in September). Managing relationships and free flowing information through observation and analysis is a key component to this lunar eclipse. Remember if you are finding yourself in the illusion of reality, it is the mind that can steer you in the right direction now. Use the mind wisely and be aware of your thoughts!
Before we experience the lunar Eclipse, Saturn will station direct on August 13th. Saturn stationed retrograde on March 25th. Since then it was showing everyone what you were dependent on, and as it retrograded, those dependencies may have gotten taken away from you. As it stations direct you are being forced to grow in ways that may not be comfortable, however it will add to the foundation of whatever you are building in life. This may feel a little difficult for some people as the karmic planet is asking you to move into aspects of the self that may seem a little challenging. Did you remember me saying something about playfulness earlier? How about more of that? That is what is needed in order to lessen the strain of the seriousness of Saturn.
Try to infuse as much light heartedness as possible this month, the Sun in Leo makes that possible. As we move towards the end of the month the analytical mind kicks into high gear, especially once the Sun moves into the sign of Virgo on August 22nd. The exhaustion and confusion continues, so don’t try to control that in any way, just trust that the path will become clear when you are ready to walk upon it.
We end the month with Mercury stationing retrograde on August 30th in the sign of Virgo. This particular retrograde is speaking to the conquest of illusion. Yes, we are moving through what is false in order to determine what is real or truth. Get ready to embark upon a healing journey: one that allows us to heal the mind as we are now able to identify and focus on that which is necessary. As the illusions are being shown to you, acknowledge them with gratitude and the awareness that you are now given the concentration necessary for reaching a great spiritual goal!

Inspiration: Healing is Remembering You are Whole!
As most of you know by now I look for my inspiration from my life. I dedicate my work to Growing and Evolving towards Love within myself first! So, when I connect with someone or a class I feel inspired to take, I will. This month Emmanuel Dagher is promoting his Core Attunements work that begins Sunday August 14th for 5 weeks. If you sign up by August 10th you receive “A Clear Path to Healing” attunement that I have received and that is the inspiration for this Blog! It is packed full of incredible information on Healing and confirms much of my work. What I want to discuss is the core belief that “Healing is Remembering You Are Whole”! How inspiring is That! Think about the possibilities this suggests!
When we feel separate from Source and our Inner Self we believe we have to heal, change or fix ourselves or others. We believe this because we don’t feel our connection to Source. We feel broken and ‘not enough’! We are driven to try to fix or change ourselves and often do this by searching outside of ourselves. We seek someone or something that will fix, change or heal our thoughts, our bodies, our emotions and our Soul/Spirit. As discussed in my last blog on Addictions to Wholeness we become addicted because we don’t remember who we are and that we are already ‘whole’ within ourselves. We become addicted to searching outside ourselves for the answer that lies within. That answer is that we are already ‘Whole’! We don’t need to change or fix ourselves and healing occurs when we remember this ‘truth’.
Now we know that ‘things happen’ and we will never have complete control over anything that ‘happens’. However, we can be in charge of how we respond and we can choose Love instead of reacting from a place of fear. We only react when we take things personally. We take things personally because we forget ‘Who we are’ and that we are already ‘Whole and Perfect’. True freedom comes when we stop seeking outside ourselves and know what can only be offered from within. True freedom comes when we stop our ‘addictions’ which distract ourselves from discomfort and from feeling all the beliefs we have that we are Broken and Not Enough. This is when we can stand in ourselves and, like Matt Kahn says, “Whatever Arises, Love That”. Love it and remember that we are already Whole. We have a Divine Spark within us that is Infinite and Whole!
Things happen and we can choose to come from a place of Love instead of Fear. We can choose to connect to that Infinite BEing within us that is Whole and Knows it is Perfect just as it is. When we stand in a place of BEing empowered we remember. When we get caught up in the Fear – and fear permeates the collective unconscious of this planet so there’s a lot of fear – we then believe we have to change, fix and heal something within ourselves or someone or situation outside ourselves. This is how we forget and this is when ‘healing’ loses the Magick that we inherently are.
Let me give an example of what I’m saying: this month I had to have a root canal on a back molar. Ten years ago I was told I would likely have to have a root canal on this tooth. This month I remembered why I am terrified of dentists (after my dentist asked me to meditate while she was doing a cleaning as she refused to fill the tooth that needed a root canal): when I was 6 or 7 I ran into a wall and chipped my tooth. The dentist that we had told my parents and everyone (including our insurance) that I had to have a root canal on this tooth because it was exposing a nerve. I discovered many years later this root canal was never done and he lied. However, I believe now he was a bit of a sadist and this lie gave him an opportunity to torture me without the proper local anesthetic for a couple of hours. My mom remembers me screaming the whole time. So this fear began a long mistrust in authority figures! This kind of mistrust impacts almost every area of my life. It sets up a pattern of mistrust and a belief that others can have power over me. So I kept putting off the procedure.
However avoidance and ignorance won’t make something go away. We already tried this with our addictions. Pretending they aren’t there won’t help us to BE Whole or to remember our Infinite Self. Now it is possible that I could have ‘healed’ this from ever having to occur but as I said “things happen” and I had delayed it out of fear for too long. Things happen because we need to remember and in this case ‘heal’ my fear around a distrust of authority figures (which I may have never realized if it wasn’t through this dental surgery). The gift in ‘healing’ may not be what we want (not having to ever go to a dentist) but can certainly be what we need – which is to heal a belief that is disempowering!
Things will continue to happen in our lives and our choice is to Remember Who we Are. To choose Love over fear. To Remember we are always Whole. Our bodies are temporary and borrowed. We can grow in changing our beliefs. I couldn’t trust dentists so I ignored and avoided them. I chose Fear! Freedom comes from choosing LOVE regardless of what happens and remembering the Magick of our Infinite Self. This empowers us to Remember our Wholeness and experience the Infiniteness of our True Self. Is there anything you are still living in fear of? How can you Remember the Magick of YOU that is Infinite and Whole?
