The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive.

Angel of August - is the angel of perseverance. The new directions we
began in the spring may have become difficult to sustain. Like a garden
that needs constant watering and weeding in the scorching August sun,
our projects and dreams require stamina and determination to bring them
to fruition. The angel of August helps us with unflagging energy to tend
the garden we have planted. When the hot summer sun and the work of
our lives demand too much of us, the August angel brings us the
fortitude to cleave to our tasks through completion.

AFFIRMATION FOR THIS MONTH
On this day, I will receive all that brings me joy and light and love. I will not allow this day to destroy my dreams, my hopes, my wants, or my desires. I embrace this day with the fullness of my divinity and no other way shall it be. For I no longer choose to learn the hard way. I no longer choose to run into the brick wall in my manifestations, in my creations, and in my beliefs. I choose with the dignity of a Being of Light and with a knowing that whatever I set my thoughts upon in this day, they shall be rendered free and they shall be rendered manifested. And so it shall be. No longer will I harness doubt and allow it to pull me forward into the ruts and the crevices of human living. But I will fly with winged freedom above what keeps me so limited. For it is only I and not another that clips the wings of my soul and of my dreams. And on this day, I cease and decease in blaming others for what I do not have, for what I do not feel, for what I do not experience. And I will come forth fully into the law of one -- the law that intends for me to create my heart's desire and that is what I create on this day, of this minute, of this year. The law of want is the law of mankind - for in my light - there is no want nor can my Light Being understand needs and wants. For the divinity within me and the beingness within me is clear that there are no needs and wants and longings -- that all things that it desires are made manifest and set free to be birthed in this physical world.
And so it is forever and ever.
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS: OPEN YOUR HEART, REBEL. IT IS TIME TO EMBRACE FREEDOM & REBIRTH
The Full Moon will occur on August 7th but the big news for August will be when the New Moon occurs later in the month. On August 21, 2017, the New Moon will result in a Total Eclipse of the moon that will be visible from many parts of the United States.
August’s Full moon is commonly known as the Sturgeon Moon for the fish found in the American Great Lakes. Other Indian tribes names it according to the crops that became ripe at this time of summer such as the Corn Moon, Fruit Moon and Grain Moon.
This is an extremely powerful Eclipse cycle that we are experiencing this Summer. Eclipses always bring great change to our world, and can shift the energy moving forward for months to come. Eclipses are powerful times for beginnings and endings, whether we can see the eclipses or not.
The Aquarius Full Moon is reminding us to set our focus on our dreams even amidst the issues that rise. This is one of those tests we find so often in life where we need to stay steady even though the world surrounding us is in chaos.
We have been juggling and blending the new and old life threads that overlap as we expand forward. This is a place of putting our attention on the new that we are creating while closing up the doors of the past. This is a call to look at seeing the bigger picture instead of stressing about the details. We need to have faith. Where we put our focus, we see growth and manifestation.
Rebellious Aquarius can help us in areas where we feel trapped, and can aid us in becoming unstuck and moving forward in big ways. This can lead us to face where we are struggling with freedom in our lives, which is being awakened in a big way. We are seeing with fresh eyes where we have been too long tied to old situations, to old ways of thinking, feeling and living.
The time has come to end the patterns that we repeat that don’t serve our growth forward. Let go of patterns of thought, speech and action that are being endlessly repeated and not getting you anywhere. Once we let go of the patterns, there are a myriad paths that are waiting to open. Release what exists in stress, you don’t need it where you are going.
The time has come to drop what sucks the life from your veins.
Despite feeling like some of these things have been in a holding pattern forever, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are changes occurring, even if it seems to be taking a long time. Everything flowing in and around you whispers of the changes that are ongoing and upcoming. Keep the faith and believe. There are miracles flowing in the unseen. Open to the mystery and trust.
The Moon is opposed Mars during this Full Moon, and that adds extra intensity to the skies and to the shifts that can come quickly. It can also bring surges of emotion rising to the surface, which we need to see.
The Full Moon tells us that we need to end the battle we have within ourselves, especially where we are fighting being vulnerable and open. The
time has come to honor our feelings and to let our guard down when it comes to letting in those we love. This can be a call to deepen trust and open in our intimate relationships, or to let our friends or family into our inner world.
The purpose of life is not to go it alone. Being strong means reaching out and opening when you need. It also means realizing that we are worthy of receiving love.
This is a huge time of illumination when it comes to our feelings being revealed, especially where we have been suppressing or hiding them. Pluto and Neptune are still retrograde, and they are helping much to be brought into the light from unexpressed emotions to secrets. This can be a time of big revelations, so be ready for information that can come out, it can be game-changing.
The Full Moon and the lunar eclipse drop us deep into our emotions. They remind us to not become detached. Feel. Express. Don’t pinch yourself off, build walls, or be aloof. If you want authentic love, the time for holding yourself back from intimacy is over. This can be a place of looking at our fear of involvement and where we are scared to open ourselves.
There is powerful medicine here if we are present with what we need to work through and see fully. We have the power during this eclipse cycle to make big changes, especially in our relationships, both with others and ourselves. Use this energy.
This is an amazing time for problem-solving. Ideas and solutions flow easily during this Moon, and new understanding of ongoing situations is very possible. This new insight can bring unconventional approaches and solutions that are good for all parties involved to the table. As this is a potent time to seek knowledge, it is also a very powerful time for divination.
This Moon tells us to expect the unexpected, as surprises can show up out of the blue, causing shifts to plans or changes to be set into motion. This can cause stress in our relationships. Pay attention to the lessons that are being revealed to you, to the synchronicity that is being shown by the Universe, and to the messages that are coming. This insight can be valuable for the future.
This Moon is showing us ways that we can explore unknown territory and push the limits of our world. This is a good time to be ambitious and set your sights on your own success. The asteroid goddess Vesta is in Virgo, which mirrors this self-focused energy. This can also highlight how we want to be
seen by others and be recognized for the talent that we are bringing into the world.
We need to get clear on how we see ourselves first, and make sure that we are appreciating our own medicine and seeing our value. Everyone else will follow, I promise.
Be aware that you are not taken advantage of when partnering with others. Make sure that who you are getting into projects or business with have the same focus as you, otherwise you could wind up doing all the work or being swindled. Watch whom you trust. This Full Moon eclipse is reminding us to not make any rash decisions until we are sure that the information we are receiving is true and not false.
No matter what you are working on or where you find yourself during this Moon, follow your heart’s desire. This is a big theme during this eclipse season, and this Aquarius Full Moon is sandwiched by two Leo New Moons, which are all about following your heart. You have to follow your heart because no one is going to follow it for you.
Love yourself for who and where you are right now.
Accept yourself totally and unconditionally.
Forgive yourself and let go of past 'failings' and mistakes.
Own your innocence and worth.
Know you deserve.
Connect to the spiritual being that you are and the wondrous beauty and gifts within.
Who you are is more than 'enough'. Who you are is AMAZING!!!
“My Imagination is a Fertile Garden and I am Capable of accomplishing anything that I desire”
One of the simple truths about each and every one of us is that we are infinite creative beings capable of accomplishing anything that we desire. We all have the capacity to think in ways that will absolutely lead to the certain manifestation of the dreams we hold in our heart. Our imagination is a fertile garden full of ideas that are constantly being broadcast to us. The quality of these ideas is dependent on the state of consciousness that we are living from. When we are in fear or in some form of lack and limitation we will attract the same because LIFE is a mirror image of the thoughts we hold in our mind. On the other hand when we stay in an open and positive consciousness then what we attract are all the resources and tools we need to create an abundant harvest. When YOU choose to "Extend Your Thinking" in ways that stretch you and get you to think out of the box LIFE becomes the magnificent journey you hope it will be.
You must believe that you are worthy to have it all. Each day begin your day with a practice that recognizes the brilliant genius that you are. Become willing to receive the divine communication that is being beamed to you. It is full of wisdom that will guide you towards your destination with ease and grace. LIFE becomes effortless when you make an agreement with yourself to break down the barriers that have been part of the conditioned compartmentalized thinking you have accumulated through the years. Break free from mediocrity and dare yourself to taste the infinite kaleidoscope of abundance that is before you. Do the uncomfortable so you can feel the energy of releasing what may be holding you back as you live into the freedom of infinite possibility. Accept the magnificence of your being. All it takes is for YOU to "Extend Your Thinking" as you become the masterpiece of who you really are.
"There is no such thing as a limited view of who you really are. There is only an unlimited powerful expression of who you can become."
I AM a perfect and dynamic expression of pure potential I see hear and feel the infinite calling of my heart In every moment of my day I choose the way I will show up and share my brilliance I recognize the genius that is who I AM I live in a constant state of gratitude and loving grace I AM a powerful expression of the Sacred Yes.

Every person in the world has a heart.
Every heart has a place within that wants only to love and be loved.
Let us connect with that place of love in our own heart and in the hearts of all around us.
Let us take a moment now to open to the heart connection we share with all people through love.
OUR HIGHER SELVES - MEDITATION
We can begin to open a pathway to union with our higher selves by first practicing self-respect and self-esteem. Without this, a poor self-image could prevent gifts of the higher self from flowing into the personality. It is through meditation that we are enabled to contact the life of the higher self, so as to be nourished by its strength, wisdom and total love for us. We can relax and soften our body, emotions and mind in order to release much superficial tension. We can also choose to live more quietly and to simplify our lives. But when true contact is finally made it will result in the awareness of a new ability to think more clearly and with greater understanding. One will become more forgiving and have better rapport with others; knowing and feeling that there is a powerful presence within us – a wonderful source of healing, courage, strength, unconditional love and a new motivation.
We can draw our higher self to us through the following exercise.
Sit quietly and relax with several deep gentle breaths. Release unnecessary thoughts and identify with the higher self by visualizing or imagining a bright column of healing light that comes from above your head (where the higher self is located). See this enter your body and move downward radiating outward and bathing every organ and cell in your body with white light. Then see it continue down into the earth under your feet, grounding you into the planet. Now call lovingly to your higher self, inviting it to come forward and to co-create with you. Ask it to fulfil your life, to become your ultimate coach and partner in order to express its qualities. Your higher self loves you truthfully and totally and will reply to your request. But you must first begin this process through your desire and conscious invitation. Therefore it is the task of your personality self to
become aware of the higher self, thereby achieving the state of higher consciousness. This is a major goal of spiritual development and self-realization.
What are you Wishing For? by Madisyn Taylor
When we wish for something our consciousness opens to receiving it like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.
From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have all felt inspired to make a wish, to whisper our secret desires into the ears of the universe and wait for signs that we have been heard. Some wishes come true while others remain ethereal visions that either stay with us or fade like a star in the light of morning. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, expressing our heart’s desire as well as our intention to create something new in our lives. When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee. There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, something that recalls the energy of childhood. Wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step by step to attain a goal, which is the realm of adulthood. Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is an integral part of the process. Wishing inspires an innocent opening to the possibility of magic as we wait to see if the invisible realm will bring our wish to life. This opening is a beautiful gesture in and of itself, regardless of the outcome. We place ourselves in a magical mind, and this mind is arguably as wonderful as the fulfillment of our wish itself. In our straightforward, action-oriented society, we may tend to dismiss the power of this seemingly passive process, yet the power of a wish is well known, hence the cautionary phrase, “Be careful what you wish for.” If you have given up wishing in favor of more adult pursuits, you might want to bring its magic back into your life. The next time you see the first star of the evening, or find yourself in front of a birthday cake covered in flaming candles, give yourself the gift of the magical realm that you knew so well as a child—close your eyes, open your mind, and make your wish.
I shall keep the promise that I have made to myself.
I shall never again tell myself that I am poor, sick, weak, nor unhappy.
I shall not lie to myself any more, but shall daily speak the
truth to my inner Soul, telling It that It is wonderful and
marvelous; that It is One with the Great Cause of all Life,
Truth, Power and Action.
I shall whisper these things into my Soul until it breaks
forth into songs of joy with the realization of Its
Yes, I shall assure my Soul.
