Hello Dear Ones!
As we step into August we just might be feeling the burn. All of the old detritus burning away. We are at the center of the fire and are certainly feeling the heat. The beauty of it is that it is a deeply cleansing and healing flame that envelops us. Think of the Phoenix that must burst into flames and become ash before returning to life in a new, brighter, wiser, and more evolved form.
Be very gentle with yourself as you navigate the powerful eclipse energy this month. Give yourself permission to slough off ALL conventions and societal norms that no longer fit (or never did fit) you. You are the only one who can know how you most beautifully show up in this human form. Give yourself permission to wear your soul on your sleeve, on your chest, in your voice or in your dancing feet. Wherever it most wants to show itself. Show us your unique ability to dance, sing, nurture, cook and garden humanity into a more loving era. However you are inspired to express your vitality, allow yourself to do it with reckless abandon and NO apologies. Be the love that we all so desperately want and need!
Much of the heaviness you are feeling is not yours. Really! You are not responsible for anyone else's experiences. We all have our individual journey and lessons. Be careful not to fall into the trap of trying to coax others into learning their lessons. You might be able to see it clearly for them, but they are the only one who can advance their evolution. Clear the energies that you are carrying that are not your own. Simply close your eyes, take a deep breath, and state that you let go of all heaviness and emotions that are not your own. Once you have done that, take another breath and offer compassion and grace to those for whom you release responsibility. In the words of Abraham Hicks, "You cannot use your strength to shore up other's weaknesses." We do other's a disservice by seeing them as incapable of caring for themselves or too weak to make the changes they need to make.
Tolerance, compassion, and a hearty dose of self-care are what is called for at the moment. Step out into the world with self love and see how profound the impact is.
With deep love and respect,
P.S. An example of throwing off societal conventions.
Tawa Ranes has a very curious mind and has always been interested in the nature of consciousness and the workings of the Universe. Since healing has been a big part of her own personal journey, much of her curiosity focuses on understanding how and why healing occurs or fails to take place.
