Today is an important day... and not just because it’s my friend @kvn_8 birthday! •
Each year, the Lion’s Gate Portal, opens from July 26 to August 12. This powerful portal of light transmission reaches its peak on August 8th (8/8). The number 8 is associated with harmony, balance and abundance. When placed on its side, it is the symbol of infinity.
This is a powerful time that gives us the opportunity to make BIG changes and transitions in our lives, in particular to move toward our most authentic selves.
Here are 6 tips from The Huffington Post on taking full advantage of this potent energy:
It’s all that there is. Be there with open eyes, open ears, open hearts and open minds. Bring your best self to every moment.
Focus on the Path In Front of You
The 23rd Psalm tells us that we have a shepherd and there is no reason to want anything - for it is all laid out before us. In green pastures and still waters. (Makes me want to go golfing!) If we let go of what limits us, we can put one foot in front of the other and follow our inner GPS. Don’t be afraid (fear no evil) to listen to how you feel and move toward your best thought. You are being guided. Take one day to really believe that and you will be amazed at what happens.
Roar like a Lion
This is the time to speak your truth. That’s doesn’t mean to rip anyone’s head off. It just means to make sure the voice that you are using is yours. Not the critic that lives in your head who sounds a lot like your mother. Be gentle and kind with your words, but never compromise what you are saying.
Don’t go back into the Lion’s Den for your Hat
The expression means if you get out of a difficult situation, don’t go back to it. Not even in your mind. There’s no need to replay old movies in your head. Move forward. Release the people and the things in your life that are no longer serving you. You’ll make space for all kinds of new relationships and adventures.
Hang out in your den with members of your soul tribe.
You know who they are. The people who make you feel loved, make you laugh, give you their shoulder. Your soul needs all the nurturing you can muster.
Show Your Pride
Do everything that you do that makes you feel good about yourself. Eat well. Sleep well. Exercise. Wear your good jewelry. Light candles. Let your freak flag fly. Be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished.
