5 ways to beat the emotional and energetic heat this month
With 2 eclipses this month (the lunar eclipse that took place on 7th and the solar eclipse on the 21st), as well as Uranus (8.3) and Mercury (8.12) retrograding, a lot of our “baggage” (emotional and otherwise) is going to be staring us in the face.
Here are couple of tips to help you move through the intense energy this month.
1- Don’t start anything new, this is a great month to work on any ideas that have been brewing in your brain for a while now – now is the perfect time to get your ideas to the next level. Also tie up loose ends, re-evaluate plans, edit and review. How many “projects” have you started this year that still need completion? August is a perfect time to complete (or at least make great progress on) what has been waiting for your magic touch!
2- Don’t buy into the fear. Right now there is a lot of fear mongering being fueled by mainstream media, etc. When we ‘get hooked’ by these stories it puts us in a state of adrenaline *yuck! Whenever I get caught up in the fear frequency I ask myself “what is the truth?” And the truth is – right now I am safe, healthy and happy. Ahh… that feels better!
3- Do take deep breaths and become the observer of your life. Pay attention to the good stuff!
4-Do move your body – energy can get stuck in our nervous system and right now is the perfect time to bring it up to be released. It doesn’t have to be anything formal, just move and have fun while doing it. Walk, dance, swim, stretch, bounce. Your body will thank you for it!
5-Do be compassionate to yourself and others, it’s usually easier to be nicer to others than we are to ourselves so be aware of that judgemental voice in your head and be compassionate to it – it’s just a misguided part of you that wants you to be your best self.
Every cosmic event is an opportunity for us to utilize the energies in the universe as fuel for our own evolution – all we have to do is be aware and ride the waves!
