It’s a blessing for me to connect with you this way every month. Your presence is helping to raise the consciousness of the planet, and for that and so much more, I am grateful.
We have much to catch up on, so let’s get right to it.
What an eventful summer it has been! So many internal and external shifts have taken place in our lives and in the world over the past three months.
For many empaths, these shifts felt like being in the high spin cycle of a washing machine, especially with everything coming at us in such a scattered way.
Focused and Inspired
Over the next few weeks, the scattered energies will alchemize themselves into a more focused energy.
This focused energy will help to stimulate inner feelings of empowerment, passion, and inspiration, which will help get things moving again in our lives in a way that feels productive and progressive.
These focused energies will awaken something within us that have long been dormant.
The image that keeps coming up is that of a golden lioness/lion that has been fully awakened from a deep sleep.
The physical feeling that keeps coming up is passion in every cell and fiber of the body.
A big part of this new, focused energy has to do with the effects of the two eclipses that we moved through recently, in addition to Saturn going direct at the end of August, after being in retrograde since April 6.
Add Mercury going direct on September 5 to this celestial cocktail mix, and we find that a new inner flame is being lit.
That inner flame will help us move past any stagnancy rooted in victim consciousness, supporting our return to our powerful, majestic selves. From there, we can move forward with greater joy, intention, and ease.
Something to note: During a Saturn retrograde, we are given the opportunity to renegotiate and review any past activities or commitments that have been a source of frustration for us.
We get the opportunity to tie up loose ends, and finish uncompleted tasks in our immediate environment.
The Saturn retrograde is also about quickly learning lessons from old karmic patterns that have not fully resolved yet. This has probably felt bumpy at times, because we can feel stuck and unmoving about an issue, while our emotions are all over the place.
Saturn retrograde is a pause for responsibility. It creates a type of disruption in the process of engaging our awareness and energy in something. This often creates a sense of incompleteness.
But that is all about to change now.
Long-range goals and projects can progress smoothly again. Delays can clear up, and moving forward will feel much easier.
Things that felt like a standstill will start expanding again. If there’s an idea, project, or opportunity that you have been sitting on for a while, now is the time to go for it! Just make sure it’s something that feels joyous, expansive, and in alignment with your most positive self.
If it does, then that is your confirmation to go ahead and move forward with it. The electricity in the air now is in full support of the manifestation of your greatest visions!
Over the next few days and weeks, you may notice feelings of being more inspired, free, active, blessed, motivated, excited, joyful, open, energized, and loving.
This is all a confirmation that things are moving forward for you, and that you've worked through much of the karmic lessons that can come with Saturn retrograde.
This focused intention will be with us for the rest of the year. It will allow us to be more productive, both in our personal lives and in the larger sense, on the world stage.
Stable and Grounded
The energies of September will also support us in feeling more stable and grounded.
When we are grounded and stable, we operate at our most powerful, which is always found in the present moment.
Becoming present allows us to transcend the illusions of time. It's from this space of no-time (a place of nonattachment) that our greatest, most desired intentions can manifest.
Here are some simple things we can do to feel more stable and grounded:
Walk or stand on the Earth (soil, grass, or sand) with bare feet
Express gratitude daily
Spend more time in Nature
Have compassion and love for the thoughts our mind has, without needing to judge them
Get connected fully to our five senses, taking quiet moments to notice the sounds, shapes, colors, tastes, textures, and scents all around us
Look into the eyes of everyone we meet, remembering that they are a reflection of the Universe
To the mind, and to those who identify more with being free spirits, the idea of being grounded may seem limiting. This usually stems from the idea that the word "grounded" implies being fixed or inflexible.
However, the opposite is true.
When we choose to be stable and grounded, we instantly bring ourselves into the flow of the present moment. Again, it’s in the present moment where we operate from our most powerful state.
It's in the present that most of our freedom is experienced, because we are no longer bound to the past or the future.
Being grounded in the present moment allows us to fully enjoy our lives, while being open to all the new blessings life has available to us.
Support and Community
This is an excellent time to get clear on what we desire to bring into our lives.
Here are some helpful questions we can ask ourselves to get more clarity on what we want to create more of:
“What excites me?”
"What are some things I loved doing as a child that I can integrate into my present reality?”
"What feels expansive and good to me?"
These questions can help us get clear on what we really want to experience more of.
Once we have that clarity, it becomes easier to take action and to ask for support.
Most of us have shied away from asking for support from others, either because we were not clear on where we truly needed their support, or because we had been conditioned to believe that getting what we want takes something from someone else, as if we are creating a burden for them.
Life is about being part of the human experience. One of the main components of the human experience is being part of a community.
We are here to share our blessings with one another. If you are surrounded by people who do not want to support or help you, it’s usually a reflection of how you have been treating yourself or others.
Are you generous with your support towards yourself and others? Do you offer support without expecting anything return? Does it feel easy and fun for you to share your blessings with the world?
When you can fully answer “yes” to these questions, you will notice abundantly available support in your life.
When we share and express what we desire with the Universe and those around us by asking for support, we open ourselves up to receiving opportunities we may not have otherwise had a chance to experience before.
The Universe wants to give us everything we've ever desired for ourselves. It's just a matter of how open we are to receiving it.
If you are ever feeling unsupported, find an opportunity to support someone else, even if it’s someone you don’t know very well.
This act of kindness will shift the energies for you, and open your mind, eyes, and heart to knowing that life is much more than separating ourselves and hiding from others.
It’s about living, loving, and sharing our gifts and our presence openly.
The next few months will nudge us to open ourselves up to receiving and giving support.
It’s time to release the pride or old patterns that we’ve allowed to hold us back from living our most desired reality.
Till next time,
Again, a profound thank you for your sacred love offering that allows this page to remain 100% free for everyone to read!
