“Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. All the elements for your happiness are already here. There is no need to run, strive, search, or struggle. Just be.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist monk 

Are you familiar with the Lion’s Gate Portal that is said to activate August 8th? This is when the earth aligns with the star Sirius. Some say it opens July 28th through August 12th. So, you may have been feeling a little out of sorts right now. For those of you who are sensitive to shifts in energies you may even feel exhausted or have flu like symptoms. There’s an intense energy shift going on! If you can just ‘BE’! 

New opportunities are unfolding. Choose to let go of old habits, beliefs, and perceptions. Abundance is fully supported now. Seeds that you’ve planted are ready to sprout and be harvested if you’re open. Abundance is so much more than money. What is abundant in your life? As I reflect on my life I am  abundant with love, family, friends, beauty, hope, possibilities, imagination, creativity, health, shelter, food, fun, choices, and so much more! Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor and philosopher has said, “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” How we view our life shifts our perception of whether it is abundant or lacking doesn’t it? 

These energies that have been activated also include opportunities for accelerated internal and spiritual growth, new levels of consciousness, and healing. Encouragement to speak your truth from your heart and being more authentic is fully supported. Imagine that you can choose to move toward unconditional love more easily! It’s up to you! Ask yourself, “What am I willing to release and change within me so that I can live a more heart based life?” Begin by recognizing the abundance in your life. Will your day and life change if your perspective changes? Mine does. When I acknowledge the many blessings in my life my whole outlook changes and becomes more positive. I see possibilities instead of obstacles. 

I remind myself that my life is mine to create. I can choose how I respond to it. I realize that everyday I wake up is precious and I say, “I get to be here another day and help someone!” WooHoo! When I feel ‘down’ I go to my quiet place and take some deep breaths and remember how abundant my life truly is. When the weather is nice I seek the beauty and comfort in nature. Sometimes I talk it out with a trusted friend even when I can’t put words to how I’m feeling. These times don’t happen often but I know it’s ok when they do. Living more intentionally makes a difference.

Steve Maraboli, Author, speaker, and behavioral scientist reminds us to, “Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.” We are the creators of our lives and abundance is there for us! My life is abundant and I am grateful! Let the energies of the Lion’s Gate Portal support you as you choose to live a more abundant life!
