Hello July! Energies for Celebration and Joy

Hello July,

We’re halfway through 2020 and WOW!!! What a year this has been so far.  Like a lot of us, I’ve been caught up in a roller-coaster of emotions and looking back, I see that it has drained me of my energy, of creativity, of inspiration, of being able to function in every day activities.  It’s drained me of my inner power and  I didn’t realize it until now.

But, for the first time, July is here, and I feel hope and an opening for new beginnings, I’m feeling a shift in the energies, and an invitation to celebration and joy.

hello july

I feel July is bringing me back to myself, here’s what I’m doing:

1 – I need to celebrate ME.  Celebrate my accomplishments so far.  How I’ve held myself up, how through it all I’m still OK.  By making conscious choices, and even though at times it wasn’t easy, I’ve been taking care of my health.  I’m exercising, and I haven’t broken my rule of no eating at night since the middle of February.  Yeah!!!  I’m celebrating that through it all I still wrote articles every month for The Inspired Guide magazine (here) no matter how hard it was to be creative and write.  I’m celebrating me for being resilient, strong, and determined.  Yes, I’m celebrating.

2 – I forgot that my word for this year is – EMPOWERED – and I’m bringing it back into the forefront every day, leaning on it, embracing it, and it’s already making me feel empowered.   Yeah!!!

3 – Our energy can be zapped out of us, especially when we’re with people that have negative energy or, places and situations that are full with negative energy, even through TV or cell phone, our energy can be zapped leaving us, drained.  A practice that I used to do, and I don’t know why I ever stopped, is something I learned from the wonderful Danielle LaPorte (here).  She said that at the end of the day when she gets home before she gets out of her car she calls her power back into her.  She declares – I call all of my power back to me now.  I am whole and complete –

And the wonderful Sarah Jensen (here) just recently shared this, – For my highest good may all parts of me left in other people, places, dimensions, times and events return to me to energize, revitalize, and make me whole –

I’m loving this, so along with smudging myself to remove negative energies every morning, I am also returning to doing this ritual of taking my power back into me.

I hope this serves you, love to hear from you.

July Blessings

July A Message from Hummingbird

I love pulling a Tarot or Oracle card on the first of each month and letting it be a guiding energy for the month.  On 7/1 I asked what energy do I need for this month and Hummingbird showed up and OMG absolutely perfect, just what I needed a reminder of.

When Hummingbird shows up it’s a reminder that we need to bring joy into our days, to lighten up, take ourselves out of a rut we may be in.  Hummingbird also reminds us to look at our energy levels and that we need to raise our vibration, a good question to ask ourselves is – are we wasting our energy on worry, fear, on not having enough?  And when this magical bird appears we can expect synchronicities to happen.  Hummingbirds also symbolize healing, agility, playfulness and this is just a few things.

For me, I have a tendency to fall into the place of ‘serious’ and not even realize it.  And right now, as I’m going through this recovery from surgery, let me tell you it’s not hard at all to go day after day and not be aware of that I’m missing the little things that bring great joy into my day.  So for Hummingbird to show up, what a blessing.

So this is my intention for this month, to make myself aware to bring joy into every day. Doesn’t matter what it is, putting my feet up and drinking a cup of tea and feeling the joy in it.   Listening to the birds chirping in the morning.  Or buying myself flowers…Whatever it is, I’ll be bringing joy intentionally to my days even if it is for just a couple of moments.

When we set the intention and become aware, we can find a moment of sweetness in every day.  If you resonate with Hummingbirds message, join me in intentionally bringing a moment of joy into your every day, it will make a difference in your wellbeing.  Let me know what you think, leave a comment, I love to know.

This beautiful card is from the Mystical Shaman Oracle card deck by, Alberto Violloldo, Colette Baron-Reid, & Marcela Lobos.
