August 8th is also known as the Lions Gate, it is a threshold where we enter into a new phase, new energies and new possibilities!
This threshold anchors the new ways of being you have been exploring the last few months, your decision making processes, and specific ways in which life wants to flow through you.
It's been an intense ride with all the eclipses and the ‘quickening’ we've been experiencing-- a time where all areas where we are not in our power are being shown to us in full light.
Take a moment to look back at the last 7 months and see what your greatest challenges have been, where life was inviting you to step in more fully; where you were being asked to take a bold and courageous stand in order to be in alignment with your refined frequency, values and dreams.
As we step into this new threshold the theme is that of FIRE. The element of fire is fully supporting us right now. Not a destructive fire but the very flame of creation that has allowed humans to evolve on this planet.
I am feeling this fire as the fire with which we prepare a hearty meal. We have been working hard gathering all the right ingredients within ourselves and now is the time to put it all together and make a wonderful, tasty, indulgent feast of it.
The mantra for this period is “I am splendid, like a thousand suns I blaze my light.”
If you allow it, this portal will burn off the excess heaviness that is still holding you hostage from your own power, beauty and self expression.
On August 8th create a fire (this can also be a candle).
Speak into the fire any aspects, patterns or qualities that you wish to transmute. If you write them down you can burn the paper, knowing that whatever doesn’t serve you now goes back to this divine fire to be refined.
Then, pray, chant, or dance! Feel into all the new ways in which you intend to show up moving forward. Feel your inner LIONESS arise. Invoke her. Spend some time with her.
How will your lioness show up?
How will she respond when she knows something is out of alignment?
How does your lioness feel most loved and tended to?
How does your lioness feel most adorned and filled with vitality? Whatever that is, do more of it!
This is a time to shine, to be loud if you must, to stand in what is true for you, to share your ideas and to feel good in your body!
On this day pay homage to the Sacred Earth and her fire, the core that sustains life and from whose womb all is birthed. To Divine Mother whose endless mercy is a cloak of living light that protects us at all times and holds us to our highest light, especially when we ourselves cannot see it. To the mighty Sun whose blazing rays are filled with light information that inform our cells and nurture our days. To the ones who walked these lands before us and the ones yet to come. May we leave this place more filled with eternal love and embodied harmony.
I wish you a beautiful Lions Gate!
So often, I find myself between worlds.
Sometimes it’s simply magical and sometimes it’s lonely, agitating and frustrating.
I know this place well, at one point I spent years within its womb. Remembering, unlearning, shedding, surrendering and now l am learning how to not only live from my body wisdom, but participate in this world through it without overwhelm.
In these times, I keep breathing into the absolute truth that it’s in the humbling lap of the divine where core and lasting reorganization happens. This is where the Beloved is rearranging what I must show up for.
Trusting the timeline of my heart, cultivating my patience and supporting myself through the process of my edges IS the practice.
Because in this 'in between space' there is nothing known, only that from this ‘chaos’ innovation is birthed.
So, if you find yourself in these spaces of initiatory challenge I want to remind you...
Breathe, don’t try to fix it but rather listen to what it has to say. Get the support you need, not to fix you but to guide you into deeper surrender when the resistance comes. There is nothing wrong with you, this is the process of awakening. It’s from this very place that your own deeper wisdom is revealed, and it is here that divine guidance can truly be felt and anchored in the world.
It’s not on our time but in divine time, what we CAN actively do is surrender the resistance and show up moment to moment for the transmutation unfolding!
Woman is so much more than words and images.
We are listening essence,
From the Earth, our Magnetism.
From the Sun, our Radiance.
From our blood and bellies, the birthers of soul.
Propagating life on the planet is no longer exclusive of birthing children, it never was but today we can more openly receive and honor this.
Mothering, gestating, birthing pangs and innate body intelligence, isn't reserved only to create human children. It's the divine inheritance of every woman, whether we birth a child or not.
Indeed, we are all pregnant with the seeds of Divine potential.
We are all mothers of the world.
By becoming our own healthy mothers, giving birth and nurturing our inner child self, we clear, we liberate, we grow up and thrive.
So that we may remember to rest in the regenerative powers of our womb and awaken its conscious creation and magnetic resources.
By giving birth to beauty, by creating and manifesting our authentic and embodied expression, we fulfill our greatest potential... the power of giving life.
