Wow. It’s been quite a summer. Lots of changes and surprises, and plenty of heat, along with the promise of a new season.
The elements of both fire and water — summer and fall — are combined now, making the time ripe for steamy new undertakings. Fire is the initiating/take-action energy and water is about clearing emotions, and dispersing and dissolving energy. Both these energetic forces are at play now.
I had an interesting physical challenge at the end of last spring/beginning of summer. I fractured my wrist. This caused me to pause and rethink a lot of the ways I do things and the assumptions I hold. I was given the gift of letting go of any need to hurry. And, it was my left wrist that I hurt, my “receiving” arm, so I got to practice receiving as I had to ask for a lot of help.
A bit of clearing and cleaning
Before we launch into this next season, it’s wise to make room for what we want next. Whatever hasn’t worked out as you planned, you can let go of it now.
This is also a great time to plan another detox cleanse. Get it in before the winter if you can swing it. Here is the link for a self-guided Goddess cleanse.
As you prepare for the next new moon and later Equinox this month, this kind of clearing process will really serve you.
Is there anyone from your past or present that you still need to forgive? Yourself perhaps?
Spend a little time reflecting on this and then try saying the Hawaiian Ho’oponopono prayer, if it resonates. Repeat this prayer over and over until you feel a shift.
“I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
Or, you can use a loving kindness meditation. Start with yourself and then move on to others, changing the subject of each line (e.g., “May you have peace, love and harmony in your life”).
May I have peace, love and harmony in my life.
May I be filled with loving compassion and kindness.
May I be free of sickness or any negative energy.
May I feel loving kindness toward others and have a positive influence on them.
May I now be surrounded in infinite love, peace, health and joy.
This works well for not only forgiving yourself but shifting any resentments you may still be harboring about others.
Make way for a miracle
Allow happiness to flood your being. It is now well known that focusing on gratitude, practicing forgiveness and spreading loving kindness can literally change your life in miraculous ways.
The mind is a powerful tool and can be used in these ways to shift your vibration and draw in all the goodness you deserve.
Goddess blessings to you,
