Hello everyone! I won't be blogging for the next two weeks as I'll be away on holiday but I will be back to posting the week of August 27th.
This week's energy theme is so positive and powerful. The most recent full moon and Enchantment Circle was truly transformative and by far my favourite to date. I was on a spiritual high afterward. I have been loving the healing sessions this week, even more so than usual, as you are so ready to return to the light! Before we get into this week's energy theme let's look at the definition of personal fulfillment below.
Personal fulfillment is the achievement of life goals which are important to an individual, in contrast to the goals of society, family, and other collective obligations. Personal fulfillment is an ongoing journey for a human individual. (Wikipedia)
This highlights everything you've been moving through. You are shedding the skin and cutting the cords to the old ties of expectations and limitations. And you are feeling the freedom of new light. There has been a deep surrender taking place as you let go of attachments to outcomes and remember what it means to journey. The saying I love that really resonates with the energy of this theme is: Attached to nothing, connected to everything. This year of 11 which is bringing double the intensity has you needing to find the balance between me and us. How you engage with the collective and how you honour yourself in this new light is starting to click this week. It's as though the water has been slowly coming to a boil. Seriously, who hasn't felt frustrated this year feeling like the pace has been watching the water and waiting for it to boil?! And now ta-da! The lid is off, the water is piping hot, and you are ready to get cooking.
Balance is the name of the game as you move forward. If you're struggling to know where to go or what decision to make, connect with what feels most authentic for you. You have stepped further away from what you think you should do, from what others want you to do, and you are celebrating your choices and understanding the more you honour your light, the more you do support others. As you let go of the imbalance of responsibility toward others and your attachment to the outcome, what happens? You restore your desire, freedom, and vitality to enjoy connecting with people, to enjoy your work, to enjoy observing all the dynamics at play, to enjoy, period. The rebirth of joy is at your doorstep. It's time to truly understand what it means to joyfully co-create with Source. And that means letting go of the destination and repeatedly surrendering to the ride.
The weekly card revealed this week's theme of forgiveness. What form is it taking in your experiences? Self-forgiveness? Forgiveness toward others?
You may find a resurgence of old energies popping up this week and forcing you to address any remaining forgiveness toward past experiences. It can be a challenge when you are triggered to find the love and growth buried in less than desirable interactions. But if you can do just that you clear the space for the new to continue to expand. The main way you'll feel this week's energy theme show up is in your reactions. You are being asked to practice self-responsibility as you acknowledge a trigger for what it is, extract any and all insight from it that you can, and then let it go with love.
With some intense energy right now it's all too easy to slip into an emotional overreaction and be left with feelings of regret and disappointment. See any difficult conversations or interactions as healthy challenges to practice staying in your higher self and being understanding and mature no matter what environment you're in or who's energy you're around. To put it plainly, pick your battles. Take a beat and ask yourself, is this really worth it? If not, redirect with a bit of welcome humour or make an exit. And if you're struggling with this right now, it's safe to say you'll want to limit your time spent with others so you can rest and reflect in between.
Your inner child needs some love this week, especially if you are dealing with self-forgiveness. Picture your inner child in your core holding the energy of whatever decision, action, consequence, or whatever it is you're needing to heal, in their cupped hands. While doing the same with your hands let it go with them. See it slip through their hands and release like sand. Then give them a big hug and reassure them that it's okay. Remind them, and therefore yourself, of the learning experience it was and focus on how it has made you stronger and wiser. You can't go back and change the past but you can learn from the past to create your future.
Your gut may need some extra attention as it processes feelings of overwhelm and seeks to amp up your joy factor. Massage the area, work with orange crystals, wear orange, or even eat orange foods to support it. This week seeks to rev up your engine so do your best to be in the present moment and continuously lift the pressure while returning to a happy anticipation.
This week's energy theme is coming in hot! You are being asked to find a new equilibrium, and to quote Keats, my favourite poet: "Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced." You may be enduring some emotional and physical peaks and valleys as your energy strives to harmonize. This balance is about bringing your spiritual and physical worlds into alignment. And to clear the path for this addictions are surfacing for healing. Is there a pattern of addiction you have noticed increasing in energy for you this week? Are you addicted to alcohol, work, food, love, or all of the above?
Turquoise is the recommended crystal to help you heal through this change. And the root and heart chakra are good ones to give primary focus to. Self-responsibility is called for and you may find yourself paying the price for side-stepping it. With addiction can come self-sabotage and the other layer that is important to address right now is hyper-independence. If you are resisting support and sinking into a completely do-it-yourself attitude, you may find yourself struggling more than usual, especially physically. Alternatively, the counterpart, co-dependence could be your experience of addiction. Relying too heavily on others and not maturing yourself could have you struggling more than usual, especially spiritually.
When you are healing addictions you may find there is a belief in painful processing. If you do not feel connected to yourself or to the world in the way you desire, you may fall back on pain as the reminder you are connected. And clearing this belief system of painful processing may involve releasing self-judgment, shame, denial, and overwhelm. There is a lot of trauma in the collective consciousness right now and it is causing people to want to numb themselves be it subconsciously or by free will choice. When you find yourself leaning into an addiction, ask spirit for help. Ask to be guided to the right support and to connect with the emotion behind the action. Remember that there is no such thing as a bad emotion. Every emotion serves as a valuable part of your healing process and spiritual growth. As I always say, emotions are your fuel. If you can see it this way they can become your guiding lights, tuning you into what needs care and attention. When you numb yourself to your emotions, you limit your soul's capacity to connect, grow, and expand. Spirit reminds you that as you experience this shift of high's and low's it's not about regret and self-judgment, it's about learning and self-love. The elementals say when you recognize an imbalance and heal an addiction you will be amazed by how much energy and space you free up, allowing yourself to love and be loved more deeply. Whereas the addiction is merely an empty promise of love that lies and repeats its cycle.
This week's energy theme is asking you to make changes so you can ultimately work smarter, not harder. If you are moving from a place of habit, pattern, and addiction, these are surfacing in major ways. You are being asked to shift to a place of awareness, creativity, and surrender. You may find yourself doing a lot of soul searching as you are faced with experiences that remind you of what needs to be wrapped up and brought to a close. You may feel confused and worried as you let go of the past but aren't yet clear about the future. It's okay to not know, hanging out in the in between is where you are required to be right now. We are breaking a cycle of chasing things as we evolve into a deeper power of creation. You may find yourself battling wants versus needs.
There is so much energy and focus around work and career right now. Be careful not to fall into fear with it but to surrender your situation to spirt and ask for help. If you are feeling fear your energy tends to panic and you reach for quick and familiar fixes. But right now your work and career are evolving, it's time for a new incarnation of certain projects, places, and offerings. Some of you may find yourself rebranding or restructuring, or just tweaking things to be more efficient, and moving ahead with new ideas. Although this process can be unnerving, it's about getting you onto an easier path. You may be feeling resistance toward making changes but ultimately the challenge involved with implementing healthy changes will be well worth it. Instead of moving forward from the familiar, we are being forced to get quiet, listen, and connect with the WHY behind any choices and decisions. Be aware of not running on autopilot right now and creating unnecessary stress for yourself. If something isn't working, step back, gain some perspective, and look for what can be done differently moving forward. There are things that aren't working as well as they used to, get in their and pluck the weeds. A mental decluttering will help to clear the way for new insights to take root. So often you ask for things you don't really want but believe you need. It's time to let go of living from lack and fear and to get back to the abundance and faith in your work, finances, and career.
Work with spirit more closely and set an intention of moving forward from all the wisdom of your past experiences and life lessons. Use your past to propel you forward so you aren't just hitting repeat and replaying the same life lessons. Fear may have had you acting first and seeking second. But spirit reminds you to save yourself unnecessary strife by seeking first and actioning from awareness. This means take some time to just be, let the fog clear and the dust settle, so that when you do make a move, it's the right one. There's a big difference between perseverance and blind progress.
The energy of this week is so powerful! I am loving the summer solstice vibes and am excited to teach my workshop this weekend. This week's energy theme has you making the shift into a more energized and illuminated state. But keep in mind it will continue to be in the energy of this year where it happens in a gradual, slow and steady build. So no, you won't become the road runner overnight, and yes, patience will continue to be a theme this year, but you will feel relieved sensing this increasing wave of energy. The elementals compare it to a hike, the first half of this year had you climbing uphill, right now and for the summer you are enjoying the view, and then in the fall and winter, you get to enjoy your walk down.
The energy and patterns this week coming up for clearing have been around fear of success. Blocks that are preventing you from feeling comfortable expanding into new territory and soaring to new heights have surfaced. Lack of confidence and past disappointments are ready to release as you reconnect with your dreams and wants. This is the perfect week and weekend, especially Thursday, to sit in ceremony and let spirit shed light on some important awarenesses. Here are some questions spirit recommends meditating on:
This is a great week to get out of your own way and let spirit lead. It's one thing to wish for what you want, it's another to will it into being. And this is the time for your wishing and willing to come together and make magic. It's never too late to make a change, to heal, and to grow. This is your week to cast light into any remaining shadows of the past as you declare it time to emerge and fly high as the brave soul you have become.
This week's energy theme has many people feeling confused and conflicted. This new moon in Gemini asks you to acknowledge, accept, and honour all aspects of yourself. Many people find Geminis to be confusing and contradicting characters because they can appear to be two people, and others wonder, which one are you? Geminis are often self-conflicted between having the awareness of different aspects of themselves and struggling to know which is their truth. They are adept at indecision and changing their minds. The truth is that they are all those aspects, as we all are. And this journey is about honouring all of them and finding balance. The affirmation and practice this week is: I mean what I say and I say what I mean. Do your words and actions match? Are you living an authentic life?
This picture above was taken as I was writing this blog and happened to glance over at my phone. It was a moment of manifestation and confirmation. The number sign of 11:11 saying pay attention to your thoughts, and the lioness representing balance. The lioness is my power animal, she is equally fierce and lovingly maternal. I'm a Leo and my sister is a Gemini. We are best friends and part of what makes our energy such a friendly and supportive match is that we both relate to and share an air of mystery. I've had people express their confusion to me, not understanding how in their words, I can be strong and sweet at the same time. If the depth of my fierceness comes out they then think my prior sweetness must have been a lie. And isn't this exactly what is being called out on the world stage right now? We are breaking down this barrier and belief that you can only be this or that. You are good or bad, right or wrong, things are black or white, blah, de blah, blah. We are all masculine and feminine, we are all darkness and light. If you are making others uncomfortable with your healthy balance of power, you are doing your soul work, so keep it up! The human ego based illusion of comfort wants to label things, to put you in a box, to know what to expect, to have you behave a certain way. But it's all b.s. When you are honouring your emotions and processing them properly, you are always flowing from one aspect of yourself to the next in divine rhythm. And that's what Gemini has to remind us of and to offer us. Gemini is dragging that twin out of the shadow and saying, don't forget about this part.
This week asks you to go inward and put your focus back on you. Take some space and time to reconnect with your personal truth. Ask spirit for help in bringing your inner and outer worlds into harmony and alignment. Ask for support in honouring all aspects of yourself without judgment. Commit to a deeper level of authenticity. When you stop boxing yourself in and pull all aspects of yourself out from the shadows and into the light, you're an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. And all that depression, anxiety, and fear energy won't hold power over you anymore. Because you'll turn around and give that piece the big old hug it really wants and needs. You will kill it with kindness knowing it's just another beautiful aspect of you finding its strength.
The terms that have been surfacing repeatedly this week are self-permission and sabotage. The current energy theme is asking you to practice discipline. And it's brought up patterns for clearing around needing or waiting for permission. Spirit reminds you that you came here to shine your inner light as bright as you can, and you don't need permission to do so. It's your destiny to be the best and brightest version of you. So check in and see if there are any blocks preventing you from elevating a relationship in your life. It may be your relationship with work, health, love, or all of the relationships in your life. Do you feel fearful that you'll outgrow people in your life? Do you feel scared that the more you have, the more you'll have to lose? Or perhaps you've burdened yourself with way too much pressure and are overwhelmed to make any change. Take some time to sit with spirit and give yourself permission to ignite your light and shine it out that much brighter, see it cut through the darkness of fear. Remind yourself that you are safe to shine and that sitting on the sidelines isn't safe, it's settling.
Because you are being asked to practice discipline the sabotage piece may primarily take the form of procrastination. It can also show up in various other ways such as comfort eating, self-medicating, and perfectionism. Try to be disciplined while remaining balanced. A message that has also been coming up is the need to have more fun. You may be feeling a bit burnt out or are struggling to get re-energized. Spirit says just start having more fun. The fun factor is also what will maintain balance so you don't dodge the discipline. If you aren't having fun and staying connected to why you are honouring the discipline, you'll lose your drive. Stay focused on your goal and the reward, and enjoy reaching it.
There has been a lot of collective consciousness clearing and it's important to pray and trust in spirit right now. Be conscious of not holding sadness, pain or grief in your heart over what you feel isn't happening. But rather feel and process it so you can clear space for the drive and discipline to work its magic, focusing on what you can make happen. Meet others where they are at but with the intention of lifting energy as opposed to joining it. The sabotage piece will want you to slip into the energy versus bringing your light to stand beside it. And that's why the self-permission is so important, it allows you to honour others while standing strong in your self. The elementals say, be like a tree, that sways joyfully in the breeze with the others but never forsakes its own roots.
Authentic and fearless self-expression is the name of the game this week. The breakthrough you've experienced this month of May has led to a significant heart opening. A heart opening is as beautiful as it sounds. It means you have moved through fear and have willingly accessed a higher level of receiving, love and blessings. But a heart opening can also be accompanied by feeling a greater sense of exposure, vulnerability and fear. This is why you will need to practice trust and rely on resources that create safety. Nurture yourself, relax, and love yourself up this week. Ask spirit to help you let go of any defences or layers of false protection that were created to keep you feeling safe but in fact have kept you guarded. This heart opening is birthing a new fearlessness. You are always evolving and therefore are always becoming a better version of yourself. And this week you are connecting with this newly birthed higher vibrational self. Use an affirmation or mantra that anchors you into safety, such as, 'I am safe in my blessings.'
You may feel the shift into this more authentic self by a subtle increase in sensitivity. You may notice you are drawn to different foods, your appetite changes slightly, you are more sensitive to noise, you are more aware of your bodies reactions to different energies and environments. You may need to revisit or increase your boundaries to honour this new shift and to be sure to maintain or strengthen your daily spiritual practice. You may find you no longer feel the need for certain vices. As the elementals say, 'You are showing your naked self to the world, without a care!' But your naked self is your true self, your soul. This is an abundant shift for as when you move from your heart you are choosing your most blessed path.
The throat, third eye, and heart chakra are the big ones connected to this current energy theme, so pay attention to them. Any blocks to your self-expression are wanting to be cleared. If you have a symptom connected to the throat and voice, it's time to check in. What is it you aren't saying? Or how can you express it differently? Communication isn't just words and conversation, it can be honoured through writing, painting, singing, talking aloud to spirit, and more. If your eyes are more tired than usual or you have a headache, it's time to check in with the third eye. Are you afraid to see the future? Are you avoiding looking at a situation that needs attention and healing? If your breath is shallow, your chest tight, and you feel sad, it's time to check in with the heart chakra. Is there old hurt and sadness that needs to be released? Are you fearful of going for great versus good?
This is a time to be selfish in a healthy way and to choose you. Allow yourself to be your top priority this week. Indulge in some self-care and downtime, guilt-free. Play, laugh and connect with your inner child. Enjoy the little things, it's a great time to simplify and focus on your personal life. Work your quirks! Let your eccentricities shine as you embrace your unique self. You are not only lovable, just as you are, you are love.
This week's theme is coming through loud and clear, my friends! A trust issue is the big one that is surfacing right now. What are you having a hard time trusting in? Love? Humanity? Yourself? The universe? This super fun ball of fear that you've been bouncing around has been leading you to this golden nugget of a deep-rooted trust issue. The good news? You've peeled back enough layers that you can now find yourself at the heart of the matter, and this is where the magic happens. Like a snake, you have been shedding your skin, tying up loose ends, and leaving the past behind you. But in order for you to move forward in confidence, you need to address and heal trust issues that are holding you back. You have to clean house before you can grow, letting go of old attachments and emotions that no longer serve you. There has been a similar image repeating in sessions, and it is that of a ball and chain. Spirit shows people trying to drag this heaviness forward, trying to fix it, and trying to change it. And the more frustrated, tired, and angry people grow at this relentless and unyielding weight, spirit patiently holds loving space and awaits their realization. Spirit waits for them to come to an awareness that all they need to do is unhook from the chain, move forward, and set themselves free. Ask for help. This isn't a time to fake strength and go it alone. This is a time to seek support and to find the strength in your vulnerability. Don't dictate how your help appears, simply ask for it. Every time you find yourself in fear, ask for help, and for source to shift your fear into faith.
An animal symbol that has been popping up, literally in our backyard, is Robin. Robin reminds you that you have to make a nest before you can lay your eggs. And that it's important to pick the right place for your nest so you have the safety and protection to enjoy your growth. You are finding your faith in a whole new empowering light because you are finding it within you. You are asked to accept the truth that you are source light, love, and abundance. When the fear creeps up and the ego wants to challenge you, you have to remind yourself, I AM all that I am asking for. Use your I AM affirmations this week and feel the truth run through your veins as you repeatedly bring yourself from fight to flow. I speak from experience when I remind you that the universe has your back. Source has always provided for me when I've needed it and every fearful moment I've faced, I've come out grateful and better for having gone through it.
You've got this. The light in the dark is the reminder that you are not alone. This theme has been resonating strongly with many people, take comfort in that. We are all in this together, all moving through the same growing pains. If you can't quite connect with your confidence and faith yet, let spirit hold it for you until you are ready. Moving forward, be conscious of what you admire and notice in others, for this is what you are growing and expanding within you. As you continue to ease out of this transition you are going to be aligned with your inner truth more fully than ever before. You will not give thought to competition and fear that there isn't enough to go around. You will stride forward with your new gift of self-belief.
There has been a lot of fear clearing and inner child healing this week as we are addressing root chakra issues. The root chakra, your base chakra, can have a huge impact on your security and safety. Garnet is a crystal that has come up repeatedly to work with clients this week. It's great for support in the root chakra, the removal of obstacles, and enhancing a feeling of protection, stability, and calm. There is a lot of heavy energy being cleared out of the lower body, mostly the legs, which is another sign of root chakra and physical blockage. One of the easiest ways to support getting your energy moving and releasing from the lower body is to put on some music and dance it out. Shake it off, literally.
The primary symptom showing up to be addressed is depression and it's accompanied by fear. It's important to remember that depression is unprocessed emotion. It can be anger turned inward and it can be a grieving process that never completed. You may find your body speaking to you more loudly than usual as it tries to get your attention. The main issue here is creating a strong foundation so you can enhance your feelings of safety. And with this new moon and making the move into Taurus, a sign that is happiest when they are feeling secure, enjoying earthly pleasures, and bringing home the bacon, you can bet you don't get to be dismissive about this root reboot. Projection and shadows are being amplified so be extra gentle with yourself and others. Self-responsibility is being called for in the form of self-care and self-esteem. Which is why there has also been a lot of solar plexus work to support willpower and confidence.
If things are slowing down and certain areas are stalling right now it's because you are in a process of ending a significant phase in your life. A new phase is ready to begin so don't pressure yourself to figure it all out and have the answers ahead of time. But rather take good care of your mind, body, and soul. Treat yourself, connect with your value, and consciously ease yourself into decisions. I love Taurus men, my dad is a Taurus, and I'm marrying a Taurus. They are naturals at making people feel safe. They can be resistant to change at first, the bull pacing the ring, making sure it's the right move at the right time. But once they are ready and feel confident in their decision, they charge, and watch out world, because they will hit their target! So right now isn't a time to take rushed action but to be aware, to suss things out, and to plan for the new path that is opening up. You are worthy of the gift of time, enjoy it.
