Mrs. McCullum – Health, Healing
Take care of the physical body through regular exercise, a healthy diet and sleep. A healer who uses their gifts to help others. Find harmony and balance with both traditional and alternative medicine, honor all aspects of the healing arts.
This month is an opportunity to revisit and rewrite your definitions and experiences of health and healing. Have you viewed healing and taking care of your health as a chore? Do you find the pendulum swings to extremes and it's easy to practice self-care when things are going smoothly but harder to maintain when facing challenges? Which ironically is when it's needed most. Maybe you've focused your attention on developing your physical health but now your mental health requires the same focus in order to keep things harmonized.
It can be easy to get frustrated, annoyed, even angry at your body when things are not working as you want them to. But it's so important to remember that every ailment or lack of energy you have is your body speaking to you. Every health crisis or challenge is a call to healing and/or an opportunity to gain awareness and insight into yourself. When you can see it this way, it becomes easier to love your body and shift your reaction to any ailments. Rather than getting irritated and thinking 'What now?!' you can go within and ask 'What are you trying to tell me?' 'What needs my attention?' 'What do we need to heal and how?' Your body can become an ally working with you to create and maintain health as opposed to an enemy that is always giving you grief. I like to describe it to clients as, 'Your soul is the vessel of God's love, and your body is the vehicle for your soul.' Why wouldn't you invest as much time, money and energy caring for the vehicle that houses your soul as you would an actual physical vehicle you drive?
Mrs. McCullum is a character who is very warm and caring; she loves tending to others. Healing is fun for her, it's her craft. Spirit says it's time to let go of forced methods of trying to feel good. Explore what you like and don't like and why. Do this by going within, connect and communicate with your energy body. Access your soul, move your energy. You don't need to be out and about in order to feel and enjoy movement. You can move within your own energy body at will and access feelings of calm, lightness, freedom, and strength. This is a month of four, a vibration that supports determination, practicality, and hard work. Spirit has your back, and says this may be your month to access your health and view it in a whole new light. The saying, 'April showers bring May flowers' will resonate on a spiritual level. Energetically, you you may feel as if you're getting a rinse this month. Spirit says it has the potential to be a month lots of people will look back on and realize it inspired a lot of healing change.
Weepin' Willy – Grief, Emotions
A time of transition, be gentle with yourself, take it day by day. Sadness, loss and grief, needing to let go and trust in the bigger picture. A divinely guided experience that will lead to healing, growth and positive change.
Transition, a time to find new ways of being. You have left something behind you and are working on embracing a new start. Even though this is a divinely guided experience leading to new growth, there are feelings of loss associated with your recent changes. This month is about emotional acceptance. This doesn't mean you will experience heightened emotions but rather a focus on integrating emotions. What do you need to grieve? What losses are you currently accepting? These losses, or endings, are really gains at heart. They signal progress, movement, they are signs that things are ready to evolve. The healed opposite of grief is celebration, and this is what you are guided to focus on in order to create your greatest outcome.
Remind yourself to find the 'flip side of the coin' as Spirit is calling it. A simple shift in perspective can do wonders! When you do so, you can find yourself going from grief to gratitude in no time. As the card says, be gentle with yourself. As you release old ways of being it's important not to get caught in judgment and guilt but instead to acknowledge your willingness to embrace change. Part of that gentleness will involve some rest and reflection. This month has the potential to be a nice balance of stillness and action. You are peeling back layers that will leave you feeling lighter. The result is more energy, harmony and peace. When you are connecting with Spirit be aware of not trying to get answers but to observe and receive. Instead of answers, seek the feeling of activation, as that's what will be happening. An energetic initiation into the newly awakened, or expanded version of you.
Spring equinox is March 19th. Take advantage of the seasonal pull that supports planting new intentions and hatching new ideas. You may have found you have changed paths altogether, saying goodbye to a path that has come to an end. Or you might find your path is merely widening and becoming clearer. Any recent growing pains are a sign of new territory calling to be unearthed. Compassion for yourself and others will be key this month as you learn to love change and let go of any false sense of security. Why waste time chasing answers when change is the only constant? Stop trying to 'get there' because the spiritual truth is you never fully arrive, you are always and forever in a state of becoming. The beauty is in the becoming. It's time to welcome the curiosity and celebration of this next cycle of your life. It's time to breathe, to choose love over fear, and to surrender. The time of waiting is coming to an end, you are ready to step up and embrace the unknown.
Chief Nimble – Ceremony, Ritual
Create and practice a daily ritual, such as a morning and evening prayer. Connect with your guides through sacred ceremony. Work with the four elements and four directions of North/Earth, West/Water, East/Air and South/Fire to create transformation and healing.
Of the above card meanings, the one that most stands out for this month is: Connect with your guides through sacred ceremony. You are reminded that you don't get what you don't ask for. And that you can't receive what you aren't willing to open up to. You'll always be given the answers if you're willing to ask, listen, and trust. Spirit describes February as a month where you will be called to dig deeper. Instead of soul searching, it'll be more of a soul dive. Notice the red colour and earth energy of this card, highlighting the root chakra. Chief Nimble is tribal energy that represents leadership, community, and authority. These aspects coupled with the root chakra energy mean you can expect an emphasis on things related to basic needs such as home, work, and safety. This is about going within to your heart space and then letting it manifest outside in the universe. If your emotional self is not connected to your outer world, your foundation is asking to be rearranged. Spirit shows me pressing shuffle on a playlist and trusting you'll land on the right 'soul song' for you. Is there anything you need to rearrange this month in order to find harmony? What root issues do you need to address? Are your inner and outer selves in alignment? Facing fears will come up this month as you are asked to access a new level of fearlessness.
Purification is a keyword this month. You are asked to clean house, figuratively and literally. Open your windows and light that stick of sage. Get those crystals out in the sunlight, or under the moonlight, for a recharge. I like to describe emotional energy blocks as weeds. Until you address the root issue you're going to find yourself in a tiring cycle of pluck and repeat. So dig into root issues and be fearless about addressing material and necessary concerns. You deserve to feel safe and a sense of home. If you've been tending to your energetic garden and pulling weeds, hang in there because new growth is on its way. You can expect an exciting new bud to sprout up any time now. Pay attention to signs, and keep your eyes and ears open. Most importantly, don't quit right before the miracle occurs!
You'll also notice the fire element associated with this card. Spirit may be turning up the heat but you are reminded that you are only given what you can handle. Don't be afraid to explore things and try new methods and approaches. Sometimes we need to know what doesn't work before we can access what does. I'm shown the word independence being highlighted. This month is designed to move you closer to your self and some long-awaited new beginnings.
February is a month of two and I've always referenced the number two energy as a bit of a needed hug. You might be the one giving the hug, or you might be the one in need of it, but either way, let the internal and feminine side of the vibration keep you in a heart-centered space. This month is a meeting of the minds. Approach things with diplomacy and a positive detachment for optimal results. When dealing with earthy root issues it's more important than ever to trust your higher self to lead the way. One of my favourite visual tools is to picture yourself sitting on a mountain top with the ability to see the bigger picture from your higher self-perspective. Having your guides lift your vibration to this place will support you in progressing toward the most positive outcome.
Maeve (May-ve) - Moon, Goddess
A heart opening, embrace of Goddess and feminine energy. A strong sisterly bond, holding space for others, nurturing and maternal energy. Work with the moon cycles to sync your body and connect with Mother Earth.
Happy New Year! January is a month of one, so we kick off 2020 by looking at the energy of the number one. One energy is like an open door, it’s a time for new beginnings and manifestation. (Cue the white light and angelic music.) What’s interesting is that you’ll notice the card for this month is the same card we had for October, which was also a month of one. Think back to October and what happened for you in that month. What did you birth that month? Did a significant change or clarity take place? You will find the same energy further evolving this month, or similar energy taking center stage. Whatever you opened up to in October, you will find yourself now grounding into a deeper sense of authority and power within it.
And with a moon card we must note that the full moon falls on the 10th, which is…more one energy! So this full moon take advantage by visualizing or engaging in a ritual that celebrates new beginnings. As a New Year's suggestion, I like to keep a digital vision board. I’m not a fan of having a big poster paper plastered on the wall but rather a file folder on the desktop that you can drag and drop images and text into. This way you can easily add and subtract at will, as your desires may change throughout the year. Once in awhile open up your vision board folder and spend some time feeling and visualizing your intentions to support their manifestation. It’s neat to see what desires remain the same, and which ones you might outgrow year to year.
Communication and creation are the words spirit bring through as your focus this month. I’m shown someone sitting in stillness and listening. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it’s easier said than done. People are more prone to talking than listening. You may find yourself wanting to hit the ground running and charge into 2020 right out of the gates but spirit is asking you to glide forward, not charge. Take the time to sit in stillness with spirit and practice your daily rituals in order to hear your divine guidance and act on it with awareness. If you leap before you listen you risk creating unnecessary setbacks and obstacles for yourself. Choose the path of least resistance as you set the tone for the year.
You’ll see from the card description above that one of the meanings of this card is a heart-opening. And with a heart-opening you are always receiving on a new level. That coupled with the one vibration has you asking yourself: What am I ready for? What do I deserve? Your responsibility is to allow and embrace it. This is why communication is key as you are guided to the action steps that will support your answered prayers. This is the time to ensure you open yourself up to the things you want. For example, if you’re looking to make new friends, you might spend some time looking for events or meet up groups that interest you. If you’re wanting to change jobs you might research and begin reaching out to worthy prospects. As you can see it’s all about starting to open, or to walk through, the open doors that the one energy is providing you. You set your intentions and let spirit guide your action steps to support the fruition of them.
It’s also important to highlight the power of the divine feminine/Goddess energy of this card which lends itself to your communication this month. This isn’t a time to sit back and let things slide but rather to practice self-honoring. If you’re setting the tone for the year then surely you want to do so from a place of self-love and self-esteem. This doesn’t need to be argumentative but assertive. If something negative is said or sent your way simply flip it by presenting the positive, or deflect and redirect. Nip negativity in the bud so you can stay centered in your positive new beginnings. If you're focused on moving forward with a blank page and clean slate you owe it to yourself not to let others pull you backward into the past.
May this 2020 year unfold with ease and grace for you, bringing forward your highest possibilities and greatest outcomes!
Edwin - Rebirth, Peace
A difficult cycle is coming to an end and relief is here. A time of blissful renewal and rebirth. A personal sense of deep peace and tranquility.
Winter solstice is December 21st and this is a most fitting card for it. Winter solstice is about the rebirth of the sun. It's a time to stand in your shadows of the past year and let the light illuminate them. This month marks a significant turning point in your transformation. The word that Spirit uses is actually, reinvention. Looking back on this year do you feel as if you've reinvented yourself? If so, congrats! That would mean you embraced change, rose to any challenges, and came out stronger and wiser. Don't fret if you don't quite feel that way yet. It takes time to become familiar with the newly evolved version of you. You will continue to feel more and more comfortable as time goes on. And before you know it you'll be looking back having a hard time remembering life before this re-birthed version of yourself. Head into 2020 with an intention of having fun as you discover all the new aspects of yourself that you've opened up and are ready to embrace.
We've all probably heard the saying, 'There's no time like the present', and this is how you can expect your New Year to kick off. This month brings the opportunity to renew your energy, reclaim your truths, and revitalize your spirit in preparation for the new year. Any practices where you focus on bringing light to your shadows will be most beneficial. You can light a candle(s) and stare at the flame as you relax, call on your guides, and then ask Spirit to shine white light into any lingering shadows or lower energy, fully cleansing it. You can do my favourite, simply stand in the sunlight with your eyes closed and feel the warmth and light fill and charge every chakra. Work with the light while releasing the dark with love, and you'll be on point.
Spirit says please take some time to write down or speak aloud what you would like the upcoming year to feel like. Not what you want to manifest, not what you want to have happen, but how you want the year to feel. If you're not sure, think about what you didn't like feeling this past year, and then simply take the opposite of that. For example, if you felt lonely, tired and overwhelmed, you want the coming year to feel loved, energized and balanced. If you felt unhappy and fearful, you want to feel joyful and confident. Beside each feeling write down one thing you can do that makes you feel that way and start putting it into practice. For example, if you want to feel energized, you might put working out, drinking enough water, or getting enough sleep beside it. Then every day, or when you're not feeling the desired way, look at your list and take the associated action step. This will be an easy way to hold yourself accountable while initiating small but sustainable changes that can bear a huge impact long-term. If you've been working your natural magic and things are feeling great, then just set an intention of continued growth and flow with all the positive energy.
This month you are asked to let go of any external focuses that are unnecessarily draining your time, energy, and resources in order to move into 2020 with a healthier foundation. For example, are you obsessing over politics as opposed to staying informed and invested in them? Are you spending more time scrolling through pictures of other people's moments instead of making your own? If you want to live your light you need to move from within, with a focus of self-responsibility. That is what will allow your desired feelings to unfold in the year ahead with the most ease and grace. It's not so much a pulling back this month as a pulling in. Spirit shows it as though the energy were a wave, one last 2019 ebb before a 2020 flow.
Finius – Love, Moment
An engagement or marriage is on the horizon. Self-acceptance is attracting new love into your life. Don't focus on the past or the future, be in the present moment and live for the now.
This month of 11 brings a high vibration with double the energy of 1. Spirit says this month will be what you make of it, meaning you can take advantage of this high vibration energy to manifest the best. Or alternatively, you can amplify your teacher within and expect some serious light to be shed on lessons still needing to be learned.
This isn't a month to tackle things but rather to slowly and naturally ease into them. Spirit shows someone diving into the water cannonball style as an example of how not to approach this month. And then they show someone slowly dipping their toe in the water, letting themselves warm up to it, then gently easing their body into the water, as the optimal approach. So the good news is, the pressure is off this month, as the focus is on keeping it low key and just living for the moment. Spirit wants you to check-in and ask yourself: Have I been taking myself for granted? Finius is a character in my story whose journey is about discovering his self-esteem and self-love. He feels pressured to live up to the expectations of his family and ends up hiding from his path instead of embracing it. Take it easy on yourself this month, be sure to pause and acknowledge yourself. The more you stay true to you, the more magic and opportunities you'll open up.
There's a reason my business slogan is "Work your natural magic," and that's because it is work. People can often fall prey to thinking spirituality and connecting with your guides should equal a free pass, where you get to avoid the realities or obstacles of life, and have Spirit do your work for you. But in truth, you are always co-creating with Spirit, and that meeting in the middle is where the magic happens. The saying, 'God helps those who help themselves' will resonate very strongly this month. Another highly applicable quote for this month is from Roman philosopher Seneca, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." Don't discount your ability to create your experiences or expect the best for yourself. My favourite prayer and intention to set and state is: Whatever are my highest possibility and greatest outcome. This way you are trusting Spirit to know what that is as opposed to giving in to any human limitations. Spirit reminds you that too often your human self may think you are aiming high when in fact Spirit had something far greater in store for you. To sum it up, don't sell yourself short, keep reaching for your greatest good, and embrace where you are at right now.
A good exercise for this month is when you find yourself wanting something, pause in gratitude and acknowledgment for all that you have. If you are thinking I have nothing, that's not true. It could be as simple as, I have the chance to live another day. If there is something you regret, it may be, I have the chance to change and do better tomorrow. And then from that feeling of abundance, creation, and support, ask for what you want, and trust Spirit to deliver it in its highest form. It is most valuable to connect with the feeling of love and abundance first. But most importantly, be willing to take the action steps Spirit then asks of you in order to help your guides help you.
This month the focus will be on enjoying love in all its many facets. You have an excellent opportunity to create and feel the warm and fuzzies. Your next step is already in place, your next prayer already answered, keep researching and doing the work, but don't lose sight of the meaning and joy in every moment along the way. Being connected to why you do something will support your highest manifestations moving forward.
Maeve (May-ve) – Moon, Goddess
A heart-opening, embrace of Goddess and feminine energy. A strong sisterly bond, holding space for others, nurturing and maternal energy. Work with the moon cycles to sync your body and connect with Mother Earth.
October is a month of one, highlighting independence and self-determination. Just as the leaves turn and release from the trees, you will be tying up any loose ends that remain as you near the end of the year. Things are coming to completion this month. Perhaps, after nine months, you'll be giving birth like me! Just saying, a pretty fitting card for our baby girl's month of arrival. ;) Or maybe you just finished writing the final instalment in your four-book series. Yay for my talented husband who did just that! The point being, big things that have been gestating for some time now are coming to a close. Don't sit on things that are done but confidently tie up the loose ends, there won't be a "better time." There's a beautiful balance at play of releasing and completing while moving forward and progressing. This can manifest as added support for any major transitions. You have the ability to feel very much in sync with your mind, body, and soul as you navigate transitions with positivity. Let your instincts lead the way.
Focus on beauty. Find the beauty in letting go. Find the beauty in change and growth. Celebrate the beauty of how unbelievably adaptable we are as humans. Honour the beauty of the soul creating and expressing itself through your mind and body. This will be a welcome month for introverts as you'll be encouraged to stay in, relax, and focus on integration. It's time to release any pressure, regroup, and replenish. Take time to enjoy the cozy fall energy and see this as a month to dive deep into your nurturing nature. If you've been working on that, and are just starting to get in touch with that gentler and more authentic side of yourself, it's a wonderful time to build upon it.
The meaning of this card is a heart-opening. Where can you further open your heart in your life? Yourself? Your romantic love? Communication? Friendships? Work community? Your body and health? Family? Abundance? You get the drift... It's time to let the old guards down, let the past patterns fall away, and let your authentic self receive. If you feel vulnerable and more emotional than usual, you're on the right track.
We've got a full moon on October 13th. What do you need to prepare for before the winter season hits? Provide yourself with as much comfort as possible. Maybe you prepare a stack of books to curl up and read this winter, pull out your warmest blankets to have on hand, stock up on your favourite spiced teas and comfort foods, again...nurture yourself. Allow your energy to flow with the seasonal changes. This isn't a time to wind up, but down. It's a time to release and rejuvenate. Be deeply present, give thanks, and celebrate all that you have achieved and brought to completion this year. Your 2019 journey is preparing to come to an end and this month you will be feeling all the feelings as they say. Spirit shows me an image of the story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, emphasizing the part at the end where his heart grows three sizes. Have you been working your natural magic? Are you ready to feel your heart open up and let in more love than you ever thought possible? I hope so. And enjoy, because these moments in life are the rewards that remind you why you do the work in the first place.
Luxor – Stars, Celestial
An innovator, being ahead of their time. Explore astrology, numerology, crystals, and sacred geometry. Learn information that will serve humanity for future generations.
Decisions. This is the word that I first hear when pulling this month's card. This month you will be making some big, and little, decisions. The last eight months are being stockpiled and sifted through on a mind, body, and soul level to reach clarity about the future. This card represents just that, the future. The star and celestial energy represent destiny. September is a 9 month, which highlights direction and higher purpose. You're done with the so-so, the mundane, and making the best of things. You are ready for something more, more meaningful, and more expressive. You are ready to make better things. The stars are ready to align for you this month to reveal what that is, and what your next step(s) will be in getting there. It's all about acceleration, progress, and embracing momentum.
Imagine Luxor buckling you into a rocket ship that is going to help you reach new heights and new destinations. But first, you must be willing to walk away and leave behind that which is complete. One cannot begin what one hasn't been willing to end. Luxor turns on the ignition and looks at you. He asks: 'Are you ready?' Only you can answer honestly. If your answer is yes, you will feel a significant shift this month of new energy flooding in. If your answer is no, be prepared to get fiercely honest with yourself about what you aren't acknowledging or doing that has left you feeling unsure and stuck in stagnant energy.
If you've been contemplating some big changes, such as a new job, a new home, or beginning or ending a relationship, this is the month where you will step further into the new changes and picture. It will feel like a light switch being flicked on. Insights, repetitive thoughts, strong gut feelings, vivid dreams, signs, synchronicity; it will all be there to connect you with your divine guidance and inner knowing. Whether this manifests as a physical action step or begins first as mental or emotional clarity, it is at your doorstep ready to be received. Where am I going and why? How do I want to feel? These are the questions Spirit asks you to meditate on this month. If you don't love it, leave it. This will be a strong urge you'll feel as the new energy tugs at your being, desiring to pull you forward. Remember, if it's still not time to take the physical action step, you don't need to force or rush it. Committing on an energetic soul level is the first and most important part. That declaration and affirmation will give you instant peace and ensure the physical action step of change lines up and manifests in divine time.
Healing is merely evolving, it is that simple. As our friend Luxor would say: 'If you aren't going forward, you aren't going anywhere.' This isn't a time for misplaced loyalties and outdated fears of leaving others behind. This is a time of fearless self-responsibility, and self-expression; it's a time to lead by example. Living life in your authenticity is far more challenging than teaching it. There is more value in being than doing. For in being, one's light educates for them. Evolve by connecting with and living your truth. Share your passions and do what comes naturally to you. Move in the direction that brings you more joy. Pursue the things that interest you. This is where your decisions become more easily made.
Blue and silver will be excellent colours to work with this month. Blue will support your self-expression and flow. Silver will keep you tethered to your higher self and divine guidance. Journaling, ceremony, and regularly connecting with your inner voice will be essential. Get your thoughts out of your head and onto paper, or voice them out loud to spirit regularly so they are sorted and you can feel your way forward, in trust.
Luxor puts your hands on the steering wheel as you start to feel the fuel from the rocket ship create a rumble of movement beneath you. You feel both ready and nervous, a familiar and natural part of endings and beginnings. As you turn to thank him and say goodbye, he says: 'Uh uh uh, my friend, no looking back, eyes ahead. Besides there's no such thing as a goodbye, just lessons learned and progress made. Now reach for your next star! It's time to reclaim your enthusiasm for life and receive the gift that it is. Are you taking on the universe, or are you enjoying it?'
Dedrik (Deh-drick) – Karma, Past Life
A situation influenced by past life memories. A pre-determined karmic experience with someone from your soul group. Trust in the process, honour the experience, and remember to see obstacles as opportunities for growth.
August is the month of eight. Eight represents willpower, financial well-being, inner-strength, hard work, and determination. This month's energy is going to ask you to balance the earthly with the spiritual and the unconscious with the conscious. I'm shown a bright light shining at the end of a tunnel and spirit says, whatever you do, don't stop now! If you did your work, you pulled in the new illumination July offered and this month spirit encourages you to now put it in motion. You may feel resistance but don't quit right before the miracle occurs. You've come too far to give up now. Find your second wind, dig deep, and persevere to the rewards you've earned.
As you've been coming into your own, old disempowered patterns and emotions have become glaringly obvious, at times probably annoyingly or painfully so. You now know very clearly what you do and don't want. This card signals that you will be seeing your new wants through by implementing healthy changes, new routines, divinely guided conversations, boundaries, and making any necessary adjustments that came from last month's rebirth energy.
The resonating truth this month will be that you can't change anyone but yourself. And you may feel challenged to honour yourself while feeling pushed and pulled to please others. Remember you can't disappoint anyone but yourself. Don't try to explain your choices and get others to understand your changes but simply share and state them if need be. Self-responsibility is highlighted with this karma card. That's what the gift of this month is all about, positive detachment. The fire breathing dragon symbolizes a boost of energy and transformation. Practice turning anger into passion, anxiety into presence, grief into celebration, and control into surrender. You can do it!
There will be an underlying intensity to this month but you can manage it by being proactive and peaceful. Hopefully, you honoured the slower pace and rest that July asked for so you feel capable of staying engaged in this month's more action-oriented energy. A saying that fits well this month is: walk your talk. You can expect to have experiences where you will be asked to do just that. Allow your higher self to lead the way and be expressed through your earthly self. Dynamics are going to be seen very clearly and triggers may be magnified. You can expect to come face to face with denial and differences. When faced with these differences you are asked to stay self-connected in your own energy and not overreact emotionally. Remind yourself that whoever or whatever triggers you the most has the capacity to be a wonderful agent of change for you. As the card says, obstacles are really just opportunities for growth. It's a mental game more than anything this month so patience and perspective will be your golden tickets.
This balancing energy of eight is ready to see you flip the script! Let's say you've had a history of breaking the law only to now find yourself happily working on the other side to enforce it. You may find yourself thriving in a picture you previously resisted because of your commitment to healing and personal growth. You extracted the light and are standing in the new strength and abundance of it. Now it's time to let that new energy grow and flow as you walk further down your new path.
Anything that supports your solar plexus, sacral chakra, and core will be beneficial this month as your crown and root will be looking to harmonize and support center. Work with the colours yellow and orange, and use air element for clearing. Sage regularly, and get outside on a windy day, letting the breeze sweep through and cleanse your aura. With a lot of mental focus called for, balancing it out with earth element will help keep you grounded and energized.
If you've doubted your willpower in the past, this month you are ready to surprise yourself with how strong you really are. Elevation is the name of the game as you are stepping it up. Any intensity and discomfort are minor and only temporary as you adjust to the new changes and ways of being. You are highly adaptable and before you know it, the new you will feel like old news. Mind over matter baby! Your affirmations for this month: I honour myself, guilt-free. I am self-love in divinely guided action. I am calm and centered as I allow and embrace healing change.
Edwin – Rebirth, Peace
A difficult cycle is coming to an end and relief is here. A time of blissful renewal and rebirth. A personal sense of deep peace and tranquility.
The first thing I hear and see when I pull this card is someone sighing in contentment and lounging in a bubble bath. Sound nice? If so, this is your month. July will be a lot quieter on all fronts. Some of the "noise" you've been experiencing physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually will have the volume turned down. You'll start to relax into the new and deeper understanding of yourself that you've been cultivating thus far in the year. Any nagging thoughts and remarks about what was or what should be are able to move into their newly freed up space of what is and what can be. It's time to start recognizing your potential and capability. You're now moving in the right direction by pulling it from the inside out instead of chasing it from the outside in.
Looking to others to understand, define, or validate you is a thing of the past. This month you're happy to lounge and bask in the glow of your inner light and self-knowing. Spirit encourages you to have fun this month as you explore one of the most curious and fascinating creatures on the planet...you. Comparison and competition will leave you feeling empty, confidence and creativity are the names of the game moving forward. If you've been feeling artsy or creative this will be a supportive month to get writing, drawing, or back in touch with whatever medium speaks to you. You'll also feel pulled to enjoy and receive from the creative energy of others via discovering new music, taking in a play or show, or trying a new community activity. The new, new, new is what July heralds.
You're facing some big shadows this year. And this card reminds you that on the other side of a shadow is new light! Are you remembering to pat yourself on the back and acknowledge your courage and bravery for your willingness to do the work? This month marks a turning point with a journey you've been on, you'll recognize and feel that you're now closer to the finish than the start. This feeling of success will keep you motivated and encouraged to stay strong and present while allowing this year's journey to take its time, transform you, and come full circle. This month you're not meant to have the whole picture revealed just yet but you are leaning into more and more clarity which will keep you calm and centered in trust.
Suggestions for this month: Get outside and star gaze. Rest and catch up on sleep. Unplug and spend less time on your phone and technology. Exercise and eat well, enjoying healthy self-care but without pressure, restriction, or force. If you usually run, consider a bit more walking. The more leisurely pace at play will lend itself to low maintenance endeavors that feel good as opposed to demanding. It's a nice month for romantic new beginnings. Your heart center will be more relaxed and open to a new ideal. At the very least you'll start honouring and connecting with not only what you truly want but what you truly need.
Spirit shows me starting a pilot light. Areas of your life where you've lost faith are ready to reignite. Past disappointments will release and give way to new hope and beginnings. Set an intention of finding your faith in any area of your life you feel you may have lost it. Because this month is your chance to hit reset and begin again.
A monthly energy foresight. The first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month.
