A ripple of positivity...
Over the past month, there has been so much intense energy in the air! With the Lunar Eclipse, Solar Eclipse, 8-8 Lion’s Gate, Planetary Retrogrades, and so much more happening astrologically in August, I’ve noticed that emotions have run high and behavior seems incongruent in many ways. Some will say it is all coincidence while others will say it’s difficult to ignore the correlation between these events and the emotional/behavioral outbursts we’ve seen, both at home and across the globe. Regardless of the source, instead of giving in to these negative energies, we can choose to focus within. We can engage in self-reflection and discover how these energies affect us with the overall goal of minimizing any negativity that may abound and identify ways to infuse life with positivity.
So, with this in mind, I did just that, and during my self-reflection, I realized that my tendency to procrastinate was selectively elevated this month as I focused all of my attention on a new project. I found that so much of my time and energy was diverted into this one single project…all to the detriment of other important tasks like this newsletter. Yikes!
I’m probably not the only one to experience this in August since endings, beginnings, changes, and transitions have been the predominate energy swirling around the past few weeks. So, I began wondering, what tasks have other people been putting off this month? Are there projects that need to be completed, meetings or appointments to schedule, places to visit, or people to see? And if so, how can I help with this?
Well, clearly I can’t do it for you…whatever it is…but perhaps even from afar, I can stimulate a solution or some idea to help motivate you so that you may accomplish a goal, or encourage you to allow the endings and welcome the new beginnings coming into your life with ease and grace, or to simply support you as you adjust to the changes and transitions that have appeared in your experience. Perhaps my words can serve as a reminder of how infinitely powerful you are, capable of anything you set your mind to, or help you remember that you have the unique ability to change the way energy affects you.
So today, instead of allowing other people’s chaos or some unidentified external negativity bring you down or create havoc in your own life, take a few moments to go within and apply these unlimited resources to effect positive change…in your own life and across the world. For truly, with every positive thought and every good intention you set, you not only have the opportunity to change your own life, but also the ability to create a ripple of positivity within the human experience.
Yes, I said it…a ripple of positivity…you have the ability to impact mankind the world over. Let’s use this newsletter as an example. It is my own procrastination that I hoped to share with you here…to spark a conversation with your soul wherein you can identify any unfinished business this month. In writing about my experience and offering my support for your experience, perhaps I can help just one person who is reading these words. And, if my words can touch just one soul and effect positive change, I have sent out a ripple of positivity. That person can then use their experience to do the same thing…perhaps with a child or grandchild, a friend halfway around the world, or to some unknown reader on their blog or other social media platform. And in this vein, you will find that the ripples of positivity just keep expanding from one person to the next. Your ripples may have nothing to do with procrastination. Perhaps this newsletter helps you realize something else you want to change or sparks some type of creativity you want to share with someone else. These changes and creativity become even more ripples of positivity sent out into this great wide world…and all because of one little positive thought, one little goal or intention, one little YOU. Isn’t it beautiful how positively powerful you can be when you set your mind to it? So, what ripples of positivity will you send out into the world today?
Sending Love, Light & Blessings,
