Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life
seems most challenging.
Welcome to July, the month of transition--in a year of transition! In Lemurian Numerology, the number 7 represents transition and change. So far, this year has been one of rapid changes for me—a journey of balancing love for the self and others. In the first five months of the year, as my new business began to become more expansive and fun, my parents went from living their lives independently to needing 24-hour care every day.
Fortunately for our family, they are living in a great retirement community, but even so, it all happened so quickly. I often asked myself and the professionals at their retirement home for a reality check, because I would see them as they were six months ago in my awareness. When they spoke, I'd hear them as they were, yet when they wanted to do something, their increasing need for assistance in all aspects of their lives became very clear.
How can we create and maintain a life balanced in love for self and others?
Although they had caregivers, I was increasingly over-extending myself, worrying that they were okay, wanting to heal and help them—perhaps to make their lives a little more comfortable. I often found life with my family, home and business out of balance. How much was for me to do as daughter and what was for the caregivers to do? I needed to come to that awareness on my own, so I found myself turning to the Lemurian Wisdom for guidance.
In the journey to "Know Thyself" that Lemurian Shamanic wisdom offers, the whole experience has offered me a deeper understanding of my own the archetypal journey in this lifetime. What is the balance of Sagittarius rising, Sun/Venus in Aries with Cancer Moon that can nurture my passionate and sacred quest to share the Lemurian Goddess wisdom?
Over the past year, I have engaged the energies and ceremonially walked through the initiations as Jupiter journeyed through the seasonal sign of Cancer and hung out for months within degrees of my Moon—amplifying the vision of creating new ways to nurture the self and family. All of this after 2-3 years of a Pluto-Moon opposition that cleared out what I thought was my life and launched me into my current journey of sharing the Goddess Light and the Lemurian wisdom.
I often tell my clients that have planetary energies on their charts in the sign of Cancer to recall the safety video on airline flights showing how to put on an oxygen mask when the air pressure in the cabin drops. At one point, it shows a mother and child with the oxygen masks dropping in front of them. What does the mother do? She puts the air mask on herself first and then on the child! (Those of you with energies in Cancer may also celebrate with me as Jupiter moves into Leo on July 16!)
The Power of Living in the Moment
In other words, feeling the beauty of where we are in each unfolding moment is a powerful space to be as it allows us to be present with loved ones in a centered and nurturing way. In my own life I've discovered new levels of this, taking care of my own needs in order that I might be in service not just to my family but also to Mother Earth and all of humanity. The Lemurian Wisdom gives me the tools that I need to bring myself back into a loving balance for the highest good of all.
In this month of transition as we all move with the energies of the Great Shift in Consciousness into our next levels of love, I hold you in the Goddess Light for the initiations and growth that you may be experiencing. I'm feeling this compelling energy to shift, to move, to allow the changes to unfold in the most perfect way. How about you?
In Love and Lemurian blessings,
