August 2022 Ascension Energies Update

August 2022’s theme: Transcending our Victim Archetype

August Keywords: Allowing, Acceptance, Authenticity

Hello Awakened Soul,

The Leo Power Gateway begins with the July 28th New Moon and ends as we roar through the August 8th Lion Power Portal. This will strengthen our sense of True Self and after that we move into more disruptive, volatile and transformational energies. 

How these energies manifest in each of us will be influenced by the engagement of our consciousness, our intentions and actions.

We continue to embody living Oneness, and our power center is shifting rapidly. We are being prepared for more inner change and a massive DNA upgrade in October (more about this in later updates!) You may be sensing it, especially if you are sensitive, empathic, psycho and/or intuitive. 

The cosmic forces that are affecting us this month are shifting the wounded masculine in us to more of an awakened state, and we are embracing another level of our feminine empowerment. All is going according to universal plan to transform us to become whole and in symmetry, thus changing our societal values and beliefs as a result.

Themes in August: 

  • The Victim Archetype - victim consciousness is rampant in our world and can feed our sense of disillusionment and entitlement, and this will be challenged as the overindulgence and privilege of many will be affected through certain world events (climate change, financial market issues, shortages). It is important to remember though that this has hidden blessings that can bring passion, innovation, strengthen our will/resiliency and cultivate deeper connection/respect with our earth and our communities. 
  • Effortlessness - At the same time the feminine energy of Effortlessness is appearing in the collective consciousness and brings in allowing and receptivity. Our wounded society believes that life is a struggle; one must work very hard to get what one wants; that we must strive, be internally driven, self-flagellate and be the best in order to survive, succeed and feed ourselves. The wounded masculine in us must conquer, power over and exploit others and the earth. Play and rest time are secondary. Being busy, hostile and frantic then distracts us, disables deeper emotional processing, and gives a false sense of accomplishment. Feeling this sense of lack drives the cogs of consumerism, fear, separation and pillaging our earth. 
This self-destructive ideology will be tempered through cosmic influence and balanced with the feminine creative principle of Allowing and Receptivity.

3 things happen when we become more receptive and a vessel for creation, instead of an endless pushing/over productive force: 

  1. We magnify our sense of abundance and the feeling that everything is possible.

  2. We become more relaxed, open and receptive, so that we can recognize and energetically beckon opportunities as they arise.

  3. In slowing down, we are more spiritually present and indulge in moments with gratitude 

    As more temperance seeps into the collective consciousness around this concept we can feel safer, less stressed, more authentic, nurtured within and grounded. We embrace the Earth Mother archetype. 

    Therefore, if you embrace this cosmic wisdom this month you will find yourself becoming less interested in pushing yourself, striving, competing, and over giving.  Therefore integrating more work/play/spiritual equilibrium. This feeds into the concept of universal abundance that is part of the Age of Aquarius.

    Effortlessness equals Allowing

    Gratitude equals Acceptance

    Self Truth equals Authenticity

    In love, authenticity and service,

    During 2021 through 2031 there will be a massive re-birthing of the Divine Feminine within our world. This is the loving, flowing energy of balance, creativity, intuition, abundance and heart-centered spirituality. This time will also see the dissolution of old systems and an awareness of our connectedness to All That Is.

    We are preparing for the next Golden Age that will begin in 2032. However many are unprepared and will find these 10 years confusing and hopeless unless one is willing to actively engage with and master the principles and laws of Divine Creation.

    This group will be learning how to partner with the energies of the Divine Feminine and Divine Creation which directs us and connects us to a co-creative existence and infinite possibilities. This includes attunement and alignment with the 12 Spiritual Laws and 12 Chakras, respecting and adhering to the 5 Cycles of Creation, and increasing activation of our 12 strands of human DNA.

    The Golden Spiral Group officially starts March 31st, 2021!  HOWEVER, YOU CAN JOIN ANYTIME!

    Are you ready to join me for an exciting spiritual journey?  CLICK HERE for details!
