August 2018 Spiritual Messages with Archangel Gabriel

Energy Overview

August brings the opportunity to set a new course for ourselves mentally, spiritually and physically.  We can either dig in our heels and resist change, or go with the flow and set new intentions for ourselves.  When setting new intentions, let them be clear about not what will happen, but about what we will do, i.e, “I intend to gain clarity,” “I intend to write my story,” “I intend to find what I need.”  This is, in it’s essence, the energy of August: keeping the focus on the self, and all the good the self can accomplish.  

This may be a difficult month to stay grounded, and others’ drama may attempt to pull us out of our loop.  Maintain your boundaries, and use this somewhat slow-moving month as an opportunity for meditation and reflection.  We’ll need an abundance of patience, especially when it comes to ourselves and the strides we perceive that we are making.  If we keep the focus on our own gardens, we’ll gain that light-bulb clarity that we crave so desperately right now.  

Eventually, the process we experience is leading us to greater creativity and opportunity.  Emotions will be purged, and we will be tilling our fertile ground in this process, preparing for the rest of 2018.  Thus, don’t be afraid to be open and sensitive as a way to access your higher energies; just remember to do it for your own well-being, and to not worry about getting validation from others.  This is your journey, and you are the only one experiencing it, and now is a time for us to become comfortable with that truth.  Support is lovely, but we must also validate our experience with acceptance and love.  

When I ask Spirit to ‘sum up’ this month for us as individuals, I hear, “To make way for something new, something different, something more true to you.”  This is a month nourish our bodily vessels in every aspect, let things flow in and out as they may, and allow our growth to take it’s course.  This is especially true for the first half of the month; later on, we’ll find it easier to be more grounded, and to take action that feels aligned and easy.

Archangel Gabriel

Archangel Gabriel’s name means, “God is my Strength,”, and Gabriel is certainly reminding us this month that we, as God, are the strength we need.  Gabriel is a messenger, helps with communication, and aids artists in every aspect with their endeavors.  He/She/They also help with children, solving problems, and helps us to overcome fear and procrastination, and find the motivation within us to move forward.

Gabriel is an angel who has always transitioned between genders for me, and at this time I felt a perfect integration and balance of all genders encompassed in their being.  The aura is pure white, but I often get a light blue as well to help strengthen the communication between us.  Gabriel has a gentle firmness, ready to give us the information we need, but only when we need it and not ahead of time.  They are an amazing archangel who encourages us to do it for ourselves in order to build our strength.  Gabriel will never abandon you once you call them in, and gives an overwhelming feeling of safety and security all.  

Here is Gabriel’s Message:

 

Dear Ones, I am Archangel Gabriel, and I am here to remind you to connect with all that you love.  Focus on the relationships, the elements of life that you hold dearly in your heart, and make time for them every day.  Whether you connect with them physically, or use the power of your imagination to center your heart on them, this is an important step in your process.  Up until now you have largely been focused on fixing what is ‘wrong’, and now you are transitioning into creating what is ‘right’.  

The easiest way to make this transition occur is to focus on this love and your heart.  Know that, in spiritual truth, there is nothing wrong, there is only discovery of yourselves.  With each experience you find yourself closer to who you truly are, even when you feel farther away from it.  Yet sometimes your soul aims to get as far away from your truth as possible, so as to make a joyous return journey and have that experience remembered for all time.  So, trust in all your experiences, and if you wish to stay away from the un-joyous aspects, make the intention to align yourself with your Divine Truth in a joyous way.

Your relationships are important this month; they are here to remind you of yourself, whether it is a pleasant or unpleasant experience.  Remember this in your interactions, and allow these experiences to drive you deeply into your heart.  Know that you can hold your own space while observing and seeing each relationship you interact with as a way to give you what you need at that time.  Again, it is a time to focus on the love you wish to create, and not the discord you wish to abolish.

I am here to help open your doorway to creativity and newness; I am here to help you discover the hidden pathway that you seek.  Work with me in this process; transition your energy to prepare for this new course and direction.  Transition your energy by focusing on what you love.  Transition from the mindset of needing to address the issues to that of a newborn, a completely new canvass full of possibilities.  For this is a time for you to realize not what the possibilities exactly are, but that they do indeed exist.  “My life is full of possibilities, and I am open to connecting with them,” is your special phrase that I give to you.  Being open to possibility is being open to life, to your heart.  

Be open to your heart and all the love that not just already exists, but that you can build upon.  In this way you’ll find your best direction.  The doorways you’ve shut from your past are now locked and closed; there is no need to worry about closing them over and over again.  You are now in the process of discovering new doorways, and it will require some patience.  However, know that these doorways are revealed as you open your heart to love and alignment with your most Divine Self.  

Call upon me for help with this transition, and know that all is being revealed at the right time for you.  Trust in your journey, and carry love in your heart.

2018: Spiritual Energies and our Personal Path

 

Recently I met with my spiritual mentor and friend Cedric Redfeather, the last Mandan Turtle Priest who is a ceremonial guide, author, teacher and artist.  We talked about the current spiritual energy and what the New Year shall bring.   “The light will continue to be brighter, and the dark will continue to grow darker.  The separation will become even wider between these two,” he stated.

2018 will be driven by people’s passions and strong, STRONG emotions, and their paths will deepen in this way.  For all the conflict and unrest in 2017, 2018 will see even more of this due to this deepening.  Those who are involved in greed, corruption, manipulation and so forth will most likely delve deeper into this path, whereas those who are seeking to uplift themselves, love more, grow more, learn more and set out on a healing path will do so with great energy behind them.

This is not to say we don’t have a choice, for we always do; rather than focusing on others’ choices, which will be difficult NOT to do in 2018, it is vital to make sure we are focused upon our own choices this year.  This will determine our rate of change, and there is MAJOR change on ALL levels in store for 2018.

The remarkable thing about these changes is that many will feel out of the blue, but truly they have been set up for such a long time, and this set up has simply been unknown and unseen to it’s viewers.  Many will not understand where these changes came from, except to the person and institutions making these changes, who have been writing their backstory for a very long time.

On a personal level, with all the change and seeming upheaval around us, our journeys will be focused on clarity: clarity of who we are, and how we wish to reflect into the world, bringing clarity of actions steps to take.  In fact, the actions of others are serving us, helping us clarify how we feel about ourselves and guiding us towards knowing ourselves better.  By seeing what we feel is right and not right, we know ourselves better, and will discover how we wish to experience ourselves in a truer way.

We will have the chance to clarify every aspect of who we are and what we desire, deepening our sense of self and connecting us further to our spiritual mind.  All the chaos is here to serve us, weirdly enough.  Are we going to choose the confusion and distraction that comes with all the misinformation and surface conflict, or are we going to go beyond that, realizing that it is helping us tune into what our hearts treasure and what we feel is important to our essence of being?

Allow the chaos to serve you in a way where you deepen your relationship with yourself,  and act in a way that reflects your beliefs about yourself.  Do not act ONLY  to remedy the actions of others.  In fact, on a spiritual level, when we react to contradict what others are doing, the best result we can get is to neutralize the actions of others.  While this may temporarily take away the chaos, it does not create anything new that can take root and be everlasting in love.  Neutralizing is fine, and sometimes necessary to clear a field, but we must also focus on planting something in that field.  Therefore, if you must respond to neutralize your space, do not let it be the only thing you focus upon.  Our actions cannot simply be in response to others; they must also be a reflection of how we see and feel about ourselves, which deep down is to thrive, not just survive.

 

If 2017 was a buildup of energy, 2018 is about letting that energetic build-up push us forward.  How many of us feel like a bubble ready to burst, after all?  For those of us on the path of brightening our journey, our hearts will not be denied.  Whether we crave change, question our current stage of life, or experience the change of suddenly becoming content, all the energy is serving us to delve deeper into ourselves and, ultimately, experience ourselves as a high vibration.

Our vibration, after all, is not a ‘thing’, but is a measure of how much we are in touch with our Divine Self.  The more in touch we are, the more energy we have, and the more energy we have, the easier we are able to create with pure intention.  So, all the talk of a ‘high vibration’ is merely a way to describe how open our inner doors are to…ourselves, basically!  The higher vibration,( i.e, the more open the door is), the better we feel, because that doorway to the Divine Self is pure, perfect love energy.  Allow 2018 to serve you in this way: by intending to have the most open door and clearest connection to your Divine Self, the energy of perfect love.

Blessings and love to us all!
