Here in the northern hemisphere, it’s the dog days of summer and gardens everywhere are in full bloom and abundance.
And August 1st marks Lammas, sometimes called Lughnasadh, and a time to begin harvesting what was planted in the spring.
It’s a time to celebrate the abundance that is. It’s also a time to slow down and recognize summer and its deep, slow, growing energy will soon shift into fall.
This celebration has a literal function, as crops and grains are ready for us to take in and prepare to sustain us. Yet it’s symbolic meaning rings true as we gather our energy…our inner work and how we will begin to use that as we move forward in our lives and this spiritual evolution that we are in.
Here we are in the midst of 2012; and throughout the past few months I’ve been keenly aware of an energy of “gathering and grounding.” There’s been a deep forming of ideas brewing, both consciously and under the radar, stirring us into readiness for what I believe is an energetic shift in the next few months of quick and big change.
You can say we’ve been growing and tending to our inner crop, and now it is time to harvest (recognize) this energy and make some decisions as to how we will use it to sustain us and others. A big part of this process is to fully ground our awareness…to sink our roots deep into the earth and the energetic grids which hold the shifting consciousness as a resource for us.
Yet, before we can get to that deep earth connection, we must fully embody all this energy we are harvesting and recognizing within. We must be able to get this into our lower chakras as we drop our energy into our own bodies to be assimilated and integrated.
As we bring all this high vibrational awareness into ourselves and particularly the 2nd chakra, we begin to let go of our old energy that no longer fits or resonates with the new ideas and concepts of Self we are holding.
Issues around choice may be coming up as you work to bring this bigger awareness (and bigger you) into yourself.
The 2nd chakra is developmentally a point of choice. It’s where we have come to hold the ability to step away from the crowd and recognize our own personal needs and desires which feed us as individuals. And….where we then make choices to support this.
The energy in the 2nd chakra can support us in knowing who we are and how we define ourselves through our choices. And as we bring in bigger aspects of ourselves or new insights, we must adjust and make choices that speak to new needs. So, if you are one who works energetically, pay attention to what is going on in your 2nd chakra. Be aware of how your are choosing things, what you are choosing and how able you are to chose what supports and defines any new understanding you may have about yourself.
This awakening process may mean making some big, bold new choices that require letting go.
The work for us right now is to pull together (harvest/recognize) our highest vibration and recognize what that looks like as we move about the world in our daily lives. And to then drop that energy and awareness into our lower body as a way to ground it, embody it. Once you can get there, the next piece is a little easier…and that’s to allow all this energy to then sink into the earth and be supported through the energetic grids in the earth.
That may seem like a lot of energy work that may not make sense to your brain, but your energetic intelligence knows the way! Your job is to stay in a place of awareness and to hold the intention to embody your energy fully.
There’s a “gelling” or forming of collective energy as we each do this and come into a state of responsibility around our lives in this deeper consciousness. And out of all this there is a swirling of energy, vibration, and sacred geometry which is forming something new as we co-create with the Universe.
The pieces are moving into place as we do our work to create some new, wonderful changes!
So this month of August wherever you are in the world, I see your work as a time to be gathering your inner awareness and embodying this as fully as you can. This is the awakening process…and it feels like the energy is asking us to put some extra effort into this again so we can align ourselves into an energy of support as the planet aligns with the galactic center and its energy.
If you are feeling like things are in a state of chaos, use that as a platform to begin to look at where your growth is; as there is always chaos or confusion at the beginning of a big shift in consciousness.
Look within to discover what needs to change in your life and where you may be fighting your own growth and energy. And if you need to, get some support with this. This awakening process can be scary as our lives change in ways that we have no real reference point for. Allow someone who may have a bit of a road map that you can follow to support you.
And if you’re feeling a bit more centered, stay in tune with your deeper inner process. Make sure that you can drop your own big essence energy, as well as the energy of what you are specifically working on or processing, into your lower body and lower chakras. Ground it.
This is our work right now: celebrate who you are and what you know to be your gifts (what you can harvest and recognize), let go of what doesn’t resonate with that, and get this energy in your lower chakras to integrate into your energetics and into your body right down to the cells.
We’re heading into some new, big, wonderful energy…which will change us. And the more grounded you are in what you know as your higher vibration, the better equipped you’ll be to go with the flow as you join the energetic conversation and spiritual evolution.
