It’s always a blessing for me to connect with you in this way. On behalf of all humanity, thank you for choosing to be here at this time, to help elevate the consciousness of the planet with your presence.
The first half of September will serve as a time to turn inwards, to reassess and refine. The second half of September will bring with it a renewed sense of confidence, direction, and enthusiasm.
It has become clear, now more than ever, that a metamorphosis is continuously occurring within every level of existence. This is leading many of us to question everything, in a way that is transforming our inner and outer being at lightning speed, helping us see beyond the veils of illusion.
Have you felt your tolerance lessen for anything not coming from an authentic space?
Has your desire or need to please others, in order to receive their love and approval, diminished even more in recent months?
Are you finding it easier to speak up and say what you really desire to say—to speak your truth, instead of what you think people want to hear?
Are you craving deep and meaningful connections?
Are you noticing that when past traumas, memories, and experiences resurface, that they don’t have the same tug on your emotions they once had?
If any of these resonate, then you are likely experiencing a metamorphosis.
This can feel uncomfortable at times (especially to the mind). You may be feeling as if you’re not your usual self.
Yet know that this is absolutely part of the experience, and that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be on your journey.
As the authentic self continues to expand and thrive, a reality that reflects greater freedom will begin to reveal itself to us all.
A Path to Freedom
These 3 steps can serve as a foundation to expand into greater freedom:
The first step is to become crystal clear about what kind of reality we desire to create.
The first half of September will offer us the space to go within and do that. As soon as we have clarity on what we desire, we can then expand on it by asking for that.
As empaths, many of us tend to shy away from asking for what we authentically want, because we prefer not to “rock the boat” or burden anyone. These are coping mechanisms that lead empaths to settle for less.
If you are an empath, I invite you to contemplate the following:
What if asking for what we desire gives the Universe the opportunity to rise up and actually give it to us?
What if this is what the Universe desires from us—that we simply ask—because that helps it to expand even more?
How does it feel to ask yourself questions like this? Whatever feeling comes up, simply observe and let it be. Just contemplating questions like this helps to open up new neuropathways in the mind that reconnect us with our freest, most authentic selves.
The second step to aligning ourselves with greater freedom is to get clear on what freedom actually is to us, and then intentionally integrate more of that into our day.
What does freedom look, feel, taste, smell, and sound like to you?
Connecting with our free Spirit is a moment that asks us to be more in the heart, and less in the mind.
What are some things that help do this for you? It could be listening to a song that evokes joy in you every time you hear it. It could be sitting under a tree, as you take in the view of a beautiful lake or ocean. It could be the fragrance of a flower that brings back memories of running freely in a field as a child.
Freedom lives in the heart.
When we align with the heart, we become open and available to life’s abundant blessings.
The third step to aligning with greater freedom is to take more risks.
Because of how sensitive empaths can be, taking risks isn’t always our first choice (though for some, that may be due to their particular personality makeup.)
Though it can sometimes seem a bit uncomfortable to take risks, risk-taking actually has the gift of helping us expand beyond old limitations.
A productive way of taking a risk can be to invest in ourselves—our well-being, or our gifts, talents, and contributions to the world. This can manifest through actions that further our health and well-being, spiritual development, or creative ventures.
These 3 steps together can help us expand into greater freedom. They can also help us be more prepared for times of great change.
As we move into mid to late September, the theme of balance will take center stage.
Creating balance can sometimes seem like a foreign concept to the mind. The reason being, that humans have amassed within themselves thousands of years of survival-based patterns acquired from cultural traditions, social structures, and belief systems.
These constructs affect both the conscious and subconscious mind. Many tend to keep us in a state of inner imbalance, which we have come to accept as normal.
We may not even be aware that these constructs are just learned behavior.
For example, since the beginning of our experience on this planet, humans have collectively internalized beliefs that say that in order for us to grow, evolve, and experience our desires, our life must be challenging and hard.
This belief is a coping mechanism the mind uses to remain rooted in patterns of survival, which it uses to protect itself.
The belief that we have to struggle or work hard for what we want has also served as a kind of initiation for the mind, helping it feel more accomplished and satisfied after overcoming outer obstacles.
But these beliefs have nothing to do with who we truly are.
They are just energetic patterns the mind has identified with for eons, so it could learn lessons, grow, and evolve.
We can be grateful to our ancestors, and all aspects of ourselves from past and present, for choosing to believe that things had to be limited or hard in order for us to grow and learn from them.
All of that brought us to where we are now—to a much more enlightened awareness of ourselves and the world around us.
The energetic baton can now be passed from our unconscious self to our Awakened Self. From here, we can see that moving through life and its challenges can be something to embrace rather than resist.
As we move into higher states of consciousness, our Spirit gives us the opportunity to release the need to believe life has to be hard in order for us to grow.
From there, we can begin to achieve a balanced state of being.
