August Soul Insights: What Do You Love?

Do more of that….
This August brings a time of really yearning to do more of what you love.
It is definitely not a time to shirk responsibility. In fact it is a time to shore up what needs shoring up; or reinforcing. It is a time to look at your foundations in your life and see if they are supportive, fulfilling and meaningful in life.
The Collective Soul; which connects to the Soul in all of us is starting a new cycle where it is now requiring that we tap more into our Soul Essence and Spiritual Energy and bring this into our “everyday living and life”….
It is time to create situations, jobs/positions, careers, relationships and situations that are in more congruence with our Soul and Spiritual Nature.
The cycle that is coming into full swing is not about living in the “La La Land” of avoidance, the “airy fairy”, or doing a spiritual bypass.  Many “seekers”, people that think they are “spiritual” bypass the nitty gritty of the emotional experience and the material plane.  Well, the main reason we all are ‘here’ is to experience via our emotions and to manifest our experiences in the gross/dense physical form called earth or the material plane.
We are here to make our dreams a reality that is fulfilling, fun, full of growth, love, meaning and in a way that contributes; or gives back to the greater whole in varying degrees.  How this ‘giving back’ shows up in your life and is manifested depends on your Soul Design and Soul’s Purpose.  This is also one of the reasons it is so important now to find this out for yourself, tap in, align to this purpose and path to live this out abundantly.  I say abundantly because you can connect to what you really want to do in your life and live abundantly. 
Take some time in August to dream bigger, adjust your sails to what is more meaningful and prosperous for you.  Begin to think in terms of having and doing what you really want, even if on a smaller scale.  

All change begins with a change in perception and is step by step…
This month find a way to take a first step; and if you have been taking small steps, take a bigger step and not only see how you feel, but see where it leads you.

July Soul Insights - Releasing What is Out Dated and Making Room for More Soul Expressed Living

Everything has an expiration date...  Our beliefs, behaviors, goals, ways of relating and motivation in life need to be updated to make room for what is now more authentically us. In many ways spiritual growth and living more from our Soul is an undoing, unwinding and dismantling...

The energies of this month are about looking deeper, feeling deeper and going deeper…. This monthly cycle kicks off a larger inclusive cycle that will be continuing until the early Fall months.  We are all being challenged to not only look deeper, but go deeper. In some situations this will be something you feel you really need and want to do and in other circumstances it will seem that you are being forced to do so.  Change happens in the deep places; and in the spaces we feel a bit off kilter.... Just remember all is happening in alignment to your Soul and at the Directive of your Higher Self.

Where this depth is to happen will be in all areas of energy exchange and Soul expression – Meaning where and how you use and put your energy.  Are you giving enough out into the world?  Are you giving to others?  Are you giving to yourself?  Are you receiving enough from those closest to you?
You will be challenged to really feel where you are coming up short; and in many ways it maybe with yourself.
Sometimes it’s hard to ask for what you really need because in the past you didn’t get it; or those in the present are use to you asking…
Well, start asking…. Start taking….Start opening…

There is a misnomer in many “spiritual”, “new age” or “self growth” circles/beliefs that to ask; or to take is not seen as “spiritual”…. I put these titles in quotes as I feel they can be psuedo and not the real deal, so to speak, because they aren’t dealing with real life, real emotions and the practical aspect of life.  In fact most do a ’spiritual bypass’ on the emotional aspect of our being; which is a main reason we are all here on this earth….

The areas of life and relating that will be a challenge and that will be areas of deeper cleansing, clearing and understanding are:

For some it will be in your emotional life; especially relationships and count yourself in as a relationship.
Job/Career – Is it meaningful enough, and what is meaningful to you? …. Be honest
For some it will be in the area of personal goals, lifestyle
For others it will be in the areas of health, healing and taking your physical body into more into account in your life.
What is your physical health and what are your physical outlets; or celebrations? Yes, celebrations; how do you celebrate being in a physical body?

We are being required to really get to the bottom of the honey jar here… Where it is sticky and hard to clean….

We have our tools to use and some of them just don’t fit quite into the jar and some don’t quite get to the very bottom…

But don’t dismay just like with any cleaning you might have to use different tools, or let the jar soak…

If you are getting soaked now, meaning  you are feeling pressure; or that you are emotionally saturated by having to look at an issue for longer than you care to just know that all this is allowing you to free up from what is not truly supportive of you and your life.   Try not to judge your process at this time.  Judge or discern whether the situations and relationships in your life are supporting your growth and moving into your own next level.  In many ways we are all be challenged to be our own "personal best".  This is not a "personal best" of competition, right or wrong, but what brings more peace, fulfillment, self expression, loving relationships, growth and understanding.  If the growth you are experiencing is uncomfortable soon enough you will get use to it and feel more comfortable.  Think 'Big Picture' and longevity.  What is difficult today tomorrow is easy....Be prepared to delay gratification for more worthwhile causes and activities.

It's now the time for handling what has difficult for you materially and emotionally; as well. 
It is also time to master worry, and let go of thoughts that are non productive, non life enhancing and keeping you stuck in limiting version of you. We all have the capacity for growth, transformation and more fulfilled living.  It usually takes a change of  perceptions and what you focus on to enact this growth and transformation At this time you will be helped by your intuition which will give you the inner knowing and confidence to focus on the expansion of your life.  

Judge not others; however take time to judge what is right for you; what is in alignment to your authentic focus. Become aware of your environment and surroundings  You may find that others don't understand the change in you and the changes you are making in your life.  The test here is to keep to your authenticity and to relate from this place of being rather than try and "fit in".... As you understand yourself better and what your changes mean you will find less questioning from those around you. As in everything your attitude and confidence is key; and your confidence will come from trusting your inner knowing.

All that is not in alignment with our Soul Design and Soul Path is winding away, being ripped away; or we are being the choice to let it go.

This present cycle beginning this month is in preparation for a major turning point collectively and individually starting early this November.  

June Soul Insights - Change, Freedom, Relationships and Fun

Make it easy…. Take it easy and have some fun.  

Having fun unfortunately is underrated on the Soul Path, within spiritual disciplines and in most religious doctrines; and yet the wisest people in the world have a great sense of humor and are a bit of a trickster...

This month there will be a lot on your plate, and a lot to juggle.  Many influences will come into your life and beckon to be given attention.
The cycle this month also will highlight a need for reaching out more into your community; as well as social and family obligations.

A need for self expression and creativity will also take the lead.  Also,  this month brings moments to longer durations of realizing one's need to have more fun to actually creating more outlets for fun.  Giggling, laughing and letting your inner trickster out will release pent up energy and give you breathing more to really see what is of the highest priority on your proverbial life plate.

If you are someone who has not focused on a creative outlet, self expression or speaking more of your mind, this month will change that. 
This month brings an urge to express what is in your heart and let more people in your circle know a deeper part of you.  Authenticity will also be key this month.   Don’t be surprised if you find yourself at more art openings, visiting a museum, going to concerts, attending a play or going to the opera.  You might even answer your inner urge to do improve, comedy or an “open mic” night… If so, go for it… The stars are with you to shine.

There will be a lot of opportunities this month to express your point of view, while also reaching compromises and “meetings of the mind” with another.                        If there are situations of power struggles or competition, look at the situation as reflecting something you need to learn about yourself; as well as a character trait that needs to be recognized and integrated more fully.    This can show up in a few a few of different ways in one’s life.  

For some it will be a character trait that one has moved on from, and now they are seeing it mirrored in someone else.  The learning here would be how to navigate this with compassion and understanding.   For other people you will see traits that you need to become aware of, heal and integrate the life enhancing aspect of the trait.  For instance a person may be very confrontational and need to learn another way of communicating; as well as letting go of the “need to always be heard”.  For some people they will see reflected via the people they relate with what they need to grow towards, integrate and express.  This can experienced as being drawn to someone you feel is very creative, responsible, self expressive; as well as living authentically.  This mirroring will signal what you are now ready to integrate and embark upon in your life. 

This month look for what seems to be artistic; look carefully at who you deem an artist, and open to really hearing someone’s truth…

You can this month begin to redefine living artistically as an approach to your life and not necessarily a being a painter or any other stereotypic expression of an artist.

You might want to draw more, sing, write a poem; and I would say let yourself play around with more expressions of creativity.

Also, June will bring more options in your relationships and relating.  Be open to new activities that are fun as well as meaningful.  Let yourself play more…     Letting your natural inclinations out this month, and even to guide you a bit will bring you to a new level of self discovery and put you in touch with your deeper true needs.   Give space to think like a child and see how you feel.  This will open you more up to you and your life.

In truth to open to more love in our life, we have to first open up to ourselves… This month follow those opens that come from within you. Let yourself feel what you want to do, say and how you want to say it. Speak from your heart more and let your heart led the way trusting that your head will follow.

May Soul Insights - Change, Release and Transformation

The roots of change run deep...

Very often we are receiving the cues, clues. messages and directions to our next step.   Forethought and resistance to "what is" blocks our own Inner Guidance and complicates what is unfolding.

My life has moved along in more fulfilling ways and with less drama as I have more consistently followed the resonance and the higher directive of the Higher Self.  It has not always been the direction or focus that my   "little self/ego" wanted or thought was advantageous.

There is a great saying by those that I have been working with individually  for a long time in our recognition of what we have learned on the Soul Path - Keep it to process....
We have become over the years attuned travelers of the Soul Path and supporters of each other's growth and endeavors.  We are each known to mirror to each other a reflective consciousness and the mantra:  "Keep it all to process" ... "Let it unfold"...

This May's focus is on change, release and transformation...
Keeping all to process and recognizing that you are in a process of letting go will help you acclimate and ride the changes of this month.   What is less and less resonating for you; as well as the conditions and relationships that no longer server your highest expression will be altering, changing and for some leaving....

Many of us have been taught that what no longer serves us; or what moves on from our experience must have been "less than" or not as expanded or important as what is coming in for us.  This is not necessarily true... It is a matter of degrees of resonance and coherence.  Something or someone can be good for us; and yet someone or something else can be even better for us and all concerned.

Be prepared to meet new people and be open to fresh ideas.  You don't have to ditch your "old ideas", goals or relationships; however it is time to make room for the new...   Don't fear the new. The new doesn't mean what is considered "the old" is no longer relevant.  New influences mean you are ready for more. Whatever this "more" is for you.  For some it will be more depth, awareness, for others more is new influences in the form of people and for others still it will be a clearing and awakening in their beliefs.  A clearing out to gain more clarity and a bigger expanded viewpoint.

Sometimes we don't realize we are in a rut of depressed because we surround ourselves with the routines and people that reinforce our own stagnation.  There is a difference in being in a "holding pattern" or gaining clarity to being stagnate  We cause our own stagnation when we resist and stop the gears of change in engaging.

We have to be engaged in our own process.  We are a part  of the process of shifting and change.  Remember, there can be no change without shifting.... Change happens with a lot of inner and/or outer shifts, even if it seems out of the blue.

This is also a time of reconstruction.  A time to shore up sails, do your housecleaning, and do what needs to be done to make your foundation more stable, consistent, understood and viable.  Releasing the past makes room for your future to unfold. This is a maxim in Metaphysical Principles and Esoteric Sciences.   As the past is released there is a mourning period that brings rain of tears that washes the present environment. This washing clears the air and the debris of what is no longer useful...  Renewal takes place in the space of releasing... The smaller or larger absences, losses and deaths are part of a greater cycle leading you to more Soul Growth and enhanced living.

Remember, the losses you experience are not only about you, but all those concerned.  In truth we are all interconnected like the roots of a great Oak tree... As you change and shift so do those around you.. .As those around you shift and change so will you.  The shifting may not be conscious to you; however the roots of change run deep and are always present, even if subconscious. It is important to note that your Higher Self knows the changes that are taking place, before you do consciously.

Use your tools of self care, inner work, and take time for self reflection.   You will be guided toward that which is most life enhancing if you listen to your own Inner Guidance and move with the winds of change...
Set your sails and let the winds of your own Inner Knowing and  Inner Guidance direct your outer moves. 

April Soul Insights - It's time again for more Soul Growth

We are already into the intensity of April and a combo theme keeps flaring up:
‘Fast movement’ – ‘Feeling Up in the Air’ – ‘Intensity’

All this intensity has Soul growth at it's core.  The personality is aligning more with the Soul.

Expect a lot of re-evaluation time; refocusing on goals and a feeling of things are just not jelling and are “just up in the air”.
Also, there will be a lot of fast movement – Decisions that have to be made quickly and situations that come from left field that you will need to respond to in a level headed way.  The key is level headed.  Extra meditation this month; especially mantra meditation will really be helpful so that when a trying situation comes in unexpectedly you will be able to pull back, get centered and make an optimal decision. You might even feel like you are charging around getting a lot of stuff done; and you will be getting a lot done. You will be able to do more in less time.

Intensity, is the bedrock of the energies this year and it is amplified this month. Expect the ‘intensity’ to intensify in also May - June when we enter the next Gateway-Portal of Light.

Many people are saying:   “Can’t I just get a break?”  - “When is this energy and intensity going to be over?”….
Not for a while, and in fact what is actually going to happen is that we are adjusting and adapting to this new energy pattern.  This is the energetic pattern of the New Emerging Consciousness’ which comprises the New Paradigm.

We all in varying ways and in ways that are individual to each of us being called to live more from the Soul and Higher Self. The Soul Aspect of our being is deeming that we do indeed grow…. We are being nudged, pushed, prodded, inspired and led to grow into more Soul Expression and extend this expression into the world.  This is not a time to hide your light under a bush or dim your light. It is time to shine fully bright.
Some people might even think that you are the intense one and perhaps you are acting from more passion; as well as vitality in your life.  Some of you may even be a little harsher or brasher.  This can be because on a subconscious level there is a feeling of needing to do more, extend out more and express more.  There is a feeling of urgency in the air.  This urgency signals that the tide has turned and we are all creating more from a Soul level than Ego level.

The Soul is the individualized aspect of The All That Is; or you could also say – Spirit, God, Universal Energies, Resonant Fields of the Universe…. The Soul is our physicality and physical expression. It is the sum of us mentally, emotionally, physically and is a unique version of Spirit.
How we live and express is ultimately an extension and revealing of our Soul; which is the uniqueness of our being.

This month will bring situations to you and relationship conflicts; as well as discussions that will point out to you and the other people involved the flaws, weak spots; and areas of disharmony in the relationship. 
This month will also bring an awareness and understanding of what you need in relationship. This can also be concern your relationship with yourself.   In truth the more we love ourselves the more we can love another person. In fact, the more we can love another being, a project and our life.  Love and acceptance is a prerequisite to more fulfilling relationships.

Many of you will meet a life partner that is a SoulMate or your Twinflame.  Purposeful and relationships of deeper meaning will be the focus and highlighted.  You will see some of your more surface relationships fall by the wayside.  You will become very aware of whether you are living Soul purposely enough or not… If not there will be challenges to get you to ‘grow up’… This ‘growing up’ is actually growing into more authentic being, expressing and relating.

For many people, the more surface relationships will wind out of your life, not out of anger, but out of no longer being in enough resonance with you.
Get the support you need and look to the present challenges as a call for more Soul growth and to connect more fully with your life’s purpose and create deeper meaning in your life.

March Soul Insights - Your Relationships hold the key

This month will require more of you and test your patience.  The rewards are many, but be prepared to be patient not only with others but yourself.  Also, be prepared to listen....really listen and hear what those you are in relationship are saying. You will also have to listen to, really hear and understand what the various parts of you are saying.

Getting to the heart of the matter in your relationships and understanding what really matters to you will be very important this month.  The test this month is a test of love... A love test... This test will come via your relationships, creative expression and how connected you are to your Inner You.... The word test comes from the derivation of the words temperance and tempatation... Both words signify balancing, adjusting; as well as integrity and wholeness.
When we are not in balance, when we are not temperate we are not living optimally.

This month it's time to be really honest about what has been "holding you back". What behaviors, beliefs or associations.  Honesty is key.  Are your actions, beliefs and associations supporting the best expression of you?  Are your associations, friends and decisions in alignment with your true desires and goals?

This month communiciation will be highlighted and also a yearning to connect, share, cooperate and collaborate.  The idea of relationship will somehow be on everyone's mind.  For some it will be how can i make my relationship better, appreciate it; or spend more time together. For others the thoughts will center around being desireous of a significant other and the romance this can bring.  Business relationships will also be a focus and for many the realization that 2 heads are better than one.

March will bring an awareness that we are not alone and we are not meant to do "it" [life] alone.  We are to be with each other and share with each other.  We are to let their be some separateness in our togetherness.  This allows us to be individual souls and yet connect and let our souls merge in love and a shared focus.

Forms of  exchange will be highlighted this month.  Some questions to ask oneself are:
Does this exchange feel right for me?  Am I open enough? Too open? Am I giving enough, recieving enough from this?
This is not about living a life based on "tit for tat". However the universe and world is based on energy.  Everything is energy.  We are energy - we are energetic beings.   When we have too much of something, even a good thing we become weighed down.  When we don't receive enough we aren't grounded and tend to wither away.   There is an optimal balance in all of life and this month will bring you situations and relationship issues to the forefront to adjust the balance of energy.

Many of us have been taught to not want or ask for much.  To not take up too much room and not to show all you have or show that you know a lot... Well, this minimizes your energy and creates a contraction in your energy and life. It is time to open up more and be even more fully you.... It is time to express more of you and to not only ask for what you want, but to actively create more of what you want.
Take this month to expand your self expression more in ways that let you connect and share with those in your life more.

There may be some disagreements, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or over emotional responses this month that test your patience. However, it will be worth it....
A friend of mine once shared a saying with me after an enlightening conversation about people and relationships.  She said: "Where two or more are gathered there is drama".  Over the yearsI have learned yes, this is true.... No matter how evolved someone is there are areas of emotional  charge and restimulating triggers for everyone. I have seen this in all groups, organizations; whether spiritually based or secular.  The testing in March is to really understand this and honor this as an aspect of the human life cycle.....

In other words, to relate or not relate? This is the question...... For me it's to relate.........Don't let the fear of drama or being hurt stop you from reaching out and relating.  Don't wait for the perfect one, but be with the one that is here, showing up and being in relationship with you.   Relationships hold the key to our growth and Soul expression.  There is a reason we are so focused on relationship... When you realize this and understand the reason for this then you have the key.... Once you have the key the door is open in gratitude and appreciation.  This will sustain you.... There is wisdom in knowing and living this axiom.  In the New Paradigm you can't move forward and thrive alone... On your own, but not alone.

This month let your divine self dance with your human self and begin to see them as both one in the same......It is all God...All part of the Play of Consciousness....All is from and of The All That Is......

And, if anyone says otherwise they aren't being fully honest of those times "when no one is watching", when they are on their own or with their family.

This month it will become quite clear that love is the answer, and to remember the misgivings and human dramas we experience are all worth it, because to love and be loved is quite an amazing thing.


Initition and Activation as Life Direction

This is a year of initiation and activation.

Where you are being activated will show you what you are learning on a Soul level and what you are to now integrate into your life.  This is the way of the Soul.... Your Soul Self/Higher Self; which is the Highest Navigating aspect of "you" shows you your new directions by placing or removing people, situations and activities in your life....

Look to see what is being "activated"in your life and what you are being "initiated into'...

Your initiations are new phases, learning lessons and areas of expansion in your life.

Look to see what is being activated in your life.  Follow the natural flow of what is showing up for you.  There will always be what is of more Soul Expression and Soul Growth in following the natural flow of what is being presented to you.  This present is a gift to you...

The gift maybe in learning, expressing more; perhaps a new relationship; or new career direction.
For some the gift comes in challenges to be overcome; whether in the area of one's health, relationships or any other hardship.
Just know that in seeking more self understanding and love that you will reach a place of more love received and Soul Expression.

In essence what blocks you ultimately sets you free and this freedom and knowledge you can share with others in love and service.

On the Soul Path we are always learning, growing and expanding more into our Soul Expression.
This Soul Expression is what characteristically makes you "you"...
In essence expressing from your Soul is you being more you...

In my life now and in my Soul Path i am seeing more themes revealed.... Look to the themes in your life.  For most there will be 3-5 reoccuring themes that need to be weaved together to be more Soul Fulfilled.

Whatever the themes that are showing up and revealing themselves in your life seek balance to the full expression of "who you are"....

Remember you are a spiritual being and how you express and experience this is your Soul and Soul Purpose....

We are all special, unique Divine Emmanations seek ways and act upon ways to express this more and more....

February Forecast- How to Recognize True Opportunity

Doors are opening and windows of vision are as well.... Time to dream big and connect with a more inclusive vision.  Don't think in "either- or" terms.  
Think in terms of "and - both"  You can have more and live a bigger better version.  Whatever this is for you.
February brings a focus of on opportunities… This month also brings more of a yearning to connect with one’s Higher Self /Soul Self.  The actual essence of your being.
Take a look at what is brewing in your life and what is being placed in your pathway.
After the releasing, letting go and making peace with the losses of January it is now a time to fill up.  Where January brought more of an inward focus February brings a focus on activation.
You will need to find ways to fit in your contemplation time.  For many there will be so many options, openings and opportunities it might seem hard to decide the “right” direction.
This is where following what is of the most resonance, coherence and what is most life enhancing for you is key.   Don’t push. If  “it” doesn’t fit give it some time. If you don’t understand, let the ideas or the communication marinate.
True opportunities don’t need to be pushed for.  There might need to be consistent effort and follow through; however if you are finding yourself pushing then use the vehicle of time for additional clarity.
Clarity of intent will also be a focus this February.  For many this clarity of intent and how to put more intention of what you intend will be a focus for most of this year.  Look to see what you are drawing in at this time in your life. If it doesn’t match or fit your vision, then reassess your intention and how you are using your attention.  Are you putting your attention on your intention?  
Ask yourself if your activities, beliefs, friends, routines are supporting your overall focus and vision?  If they are not; then why not and how can you make them?  It’s not enough to have a great intention and vision if you don’t do the action steps to prep, create the openings and follow through with activities and routines that support your desires.
Family and friends will also be important during this month.  Share with those you feel a close connection to and be open to magical helpers and collaborative efforts.  Effort will pay off; however make sure you are struggling and forcing issues.
 This month you will have a really good chance to find your own personal flow.  Don’t be surprised if you are handling much more than you “thought” you could.  Intuition and listening to your body will be key.  Your inner wisdom and instinctual awareness through your body will be a good guide for you.
Take time to be in gratitude for all that is opening for you and take the time to share this with those you admire and love.
