Summer is a time of high sun, high energy, high activity. It’s a time of doing, action, manifesting, harvesting. We pass the cross-quarter mark between the Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox- celebrated as Lammas on Aug. 1st.
In addition, there’s the Full Moon on Aug. 7th and Eclipse on Aug. 21st. Get ready to power up!!!
Set your intentions for manifesting your dreams and harvesting your actions.
Now here’s a caveat about this time of high energy. What you reap you sow…… in all ways!
If you focus on anger towards political leaders, resentments towards a family member, fear of climate change or disappointment in yourself—– you feed those seeds of thought and emotions.
What you feed you receive.
And with the energy kicked up high this month, the energy is even more powerful.
Instead, know, claim, practice, honor your power—-
Know that what you feed grows—- so focus on what you wish to see grow more in the world…. Harmony, wholeness, balance, cooperation, bi-partisanship (or tri-partisan or no partisanship), collaboration, unity, Oneness.
Claim the truth of Who You Are – your authentic self, your Spirit, your Radiant Light. Claim this in ways that allow you to be and bring the best expression of yourself with your family, co-workers, neighbors, lovers, loved ones, strangers.
Practice catching yourself when you feel angry or being resentful or thinking angry thoughts of another. Turn it around by choosing a higher vibrational thought, or feel gratitude for the beauty around you and blessings you have. Share a laugh or hug with a friend.
Honor your power as a co-creative force for good in the world. Honor yourself as a Radiant Light, a powerful presence for others, a mirror of beauty within themselves, a role model of integrity and higher purpose, an expression of the indwelling Spirit/ Divinity.
And when you fall short of what you desire (because no one is perfect), be gentle with yourself. If you say or think something that is less than loving or kind, simply say, “Cancel, Cancel”. Then go back to what you wish to be or say or affirm instead.
For those who want to go deeper with this process, here are some actions you can take to transform what you see, feel, think into a higher expression:
When you feel yourself getting sucked into a negative spiral, first notice it. Notice your body, your thoughts, your breathing. Then ground yourself. If possible, go take a walk, feel your feet on the earth. If you are inside, look outside, listen for birds.
It’s important to stop the pattern of thoughts or feelings you are having when you have a negative reaction to what you read or hear, disconnect from it.
Call on your Spirit guides to help you clean your troubling thoughts or feelings.
In the moment of awareness, transmute your own grief or anger. See your anger being washed into the Ocean of Love or sent to the White Light or Angelic Spirit realm.
Once you are more clear, then radiate your Inner Light.
To feed the world peace, you must be peace.
