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’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.
