Supercharge Your Reality:

Ignite Your Purpose

This is not a month for the faint of heart. With two eclipses, a black new moon, Mercury going retrograde (again!), and the Sirius Gateway opening for us in the first week of the month, July is set to be a month of change, discovery, action, and self-empowerment. Where have you fallen into apathy? Where have you slacked on your healthy habits? What do you know needs to change in order to move forward, but that you’ve been resisting because you believe it will bring more discomfort or upheaval than you can bear?

It’s time to get real about your goals and take action on them. If you don’t, you may find the Universe gives you a little push in the right direction to get you going. Know that everything that happens this month is working for you, not against you – even if the daily experience is arduous and intense.

This month asks you to rise up with increased passion, purpose, and decisiveness. To cultivate these fiery states of being, connect with rare, gorgeous Bumble Bee Jasper
 This stone, born from the heat of an active volcano in Indonesia, is difficult to mine, which adds to its value. Much the same, the states it represents: courage, bravery, confidence, discernment, self-esteem, assertiveness, and endurance can be very hard to mine within yourself, especially if you’ve experienced trauma or attacks on your character that have left you feeling less-than or powerless.

Bumble Bee Jasper reminds you that no matter how low you may feel, there is always a deep place within yourself that connects to infinite stores of power, and you can access it anytime you want to. This stone promotes a limitless mentality. It aids in the collaboration of passion and purpose and helps hone fragmented thoughts and desires into a potent vision of creation that vibrates in harmony with the longings of your soul.

Use this stone in meditation, either by holding it in a seated position, or by placing it on your Solar Plexus in a reclined position. Feel the warm, positive vibrations penetrate your field and activate the fire within you. Let it act as gasoline poured on the fire of your being and reflect upon a specific goal you have for your life. Imagine the best possible outcome of your goal. 

Allow yourself to experience the you that exists within your desired reality. Who must you become to do the thing you want to do? What must you find within yourself? Know that it is possible to transform into all that you imagine. Keep Bumble Bee Jasper with you as a touchstone either in your pocket or as a piece of jewelry to remind yourself in those moments when you feel despondent that you have the power to make your dream come alive.

July asks you to show up for life on all levels, and in all ways. This month brings surprises – big and small – radical opportunities to change your life, and situations that call you into an elevated state of being. How you show up to the challenges of this month will define your future. Will you crumble under the pressure? Or will you get off your knees and stand tall, ready to use every obstacle as a launchpad into the next phase of your life? 

Bumble Bee Jasper could not exist but for the violent eruptions of an overwhelmingly large volcano. This stone carries the message not to live in fear of life’s eruptions, but rather to embrace them as agents of change that will reveal your entire being as rarer, and more vibrant than ever before.
AFFIRMATION OF THE MONTH
I embrace change and use it to supercharge my life in a positive way.
I have the power within me to create my dreams in reality.
I rise to every occasion and am proactive in the pursuit of my goals.

Planetary Overview for the month of
July 2019

July is ready to launch you into greater wealth, health, purpose, and opportunity - If you show up for it. More than any month so far this year, July is jam-packed with energetic portals, alignments, and gateways to take you into whole new levels of life. If you’ve been steadfastly pursuing your goals with little payoff, take heart – this month is where it all turns around.

If you drift through the month, inactive and indifferent, you will still be led toward situations suitable for your positive growth. But major change will come for those who meet life with a proactive mindset and a willingness to call in or release whatever they need to in order to become the person who can exist within the reality they want to create. This is co-creation with the Universe at its finest – and most potent

July starts off with an auspicious New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd. Watery, feminine, intuitive Cancer aids you in connecting to your emotional body, so you can receive the answer to the question, “What does my heart truly desire?” These heart-centered desires are like beams of light piercing through every ego-based, materialistic wanting until only true yearning remains. Let what you do in physical be informed by your emotional truth. 

Feelings are transient, yet the energy in motion pouring out from your heart is a constant stream seeking its manifestation and expression in myriad ways. Allow your choices to align with your heart and use the power of the New Moon Solar Eclipse to intensify your commitment to your highest potential.

If you have been feeling directionless, purposeless, and hopeless in life, this is your time to sit in solitude, commune with the earth and your heart, and listen deeply to the small, still voice within you. It’s okay to let whatever is true, be true. Often in times of confusion, it is really us outwitting ourselves because we are scared of realizing the unwavering truth of our being. When we know something, we can’t unknow it, and in the knowing of something we often feel compelled to take action. Action is what this month is all about, so let yourself be energized by the realization of what you truly want (or need to let go of) and be proactive in shifting your life in a new direction in line with your increased awareness. All will work out for your highest good in the end.

Supporting you in your forward movement is the Sirius Gateway – a massive energetic opening that happens every year in the first week of July. Sirius is considered our “spiritual sun” and offers deep wisdom, healing, and right-seeing. From the 3rd through the 7th you have a huge opportunity to plant seeds, make connections, seek guidance, and take steps toward your goals. This time is ripe with opportunity, so keep your eyes wide open for signs, signals, and helpful people sent by the universe to guide you along your path. Sometimes the opportunities presented seem too radical to be possible, yet during these few days, it is the willingness to say “yes” to something outlandish that activates the potential for a more extraordinary experience of life.

Directly on the tail of Sirius, our communication-focused little Mercury goes retrograde once again. While Mercury retrogrades are notorious for being full of confusion, mishaps, chaos, and communication breakdowns, this particular retrograde offers us much-needed respite from the first wild week of July. Take the days from the 7th through the 15th of the month to reflect on what you’ve done so far this year, to refine your goals, actions, or plans, and to restore balance in your life. Take it a little slower through this second week of the month and be gentle with yourself. There is a high risk of burn-out this month, so be cautious when it comes to expending your energy in places out of obligation or habit. Conserve, rest, and stabilize.

🌕♑On the 16th, we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. Tensions and emotions run high during this time as stubbornness arises in response to the prospect of change. Uncertainty causes meltdowns in those burning in the fires of transformation.

Remember: without struggle, there can be no progress, but it is a trap to believe that difficulty is the only way to change. Give yourself the opportunity to be around those who bring you comfort and joy during this time. Sometimes release, surrender, or revelation come in the quietest moments, or amidst laughter and ease. Take care of yourself, hang on, and trust the process. It will resolve.

By the 22nd Leo comes roaring in to carry us out of the waters of Cancer and into the fiery energy of the lion. This is when you may really see the payoff for all your hard work and willingness to trust. Right action will be made clear to you, and the direction you need to go will be apparent. Release all hesitation and when it’s time to act – just go for it. You’re ready – maybe more than you even think you are. Let yourself soar. Let yourself elevate. Let yourself be great.

Capping the month on the 31st is a Black New Moon, which is the title given to any second New Moon in a month. This time brings about resolution for any outstanding uncertainties that need to be brought to completion before forward progress can be made.  It may be an unexpected phone call bringing an apology that allows you to let go of the past, or it may be a repayment of an outstanding debt. The possibilities are vast.

July will change your life, if you let it. Choose to co-create with the energies this month rather than stand in resistance of them. Be brave, be bold, and believe in yourself. The Universe wants to assist you in the activation of your greatest self. No more playing safe or small. It’s time to rise.

Ishaya's Acension - Meditation Class


Saturday, July 13th & 14th (two day event)
10am - 4.00pm
$300
 
Sign up at 
http://www.ascension-meditation.com/events.html

 

Ascension is a completely effortless form of meditation that uses short simple prayer-mantras commonly known as Ascension Attitudes.  These techniques naturally move the mind from the busy surface all the way down to the source of all thought; the fathomless depths of Pure Consciousness. By repeatedly immersing into this fundamental level of Awareness, the damaging and self-defeating habits of the mind and the tensions of life naturally fall away, transforming life into one of increasing joy, clarity, and a profound and ongoing experience of Presence.

This first course provides the foundational practice, consisting of the first four Ascension techniques of Praise, Gratitude, Love, and Compassion.  While there are additional techniques, practicing these first four techniques is more than enough to realize Enlightenment in a rather short period of time.

The course fee for beginning students is $300.00 with a sliding scale for those who need it.  If you have already taken the class, repeating is free. For more information about the practice or to sign up for the course, please contact me through my website- www.ascension-meditation.com .

About Ishtar:

Dramatically brought to the spiritual path via an NDE and a tragic accident at age 13, Ishtar began a rigorous spiritual search, which found him living as a meditating teenage ascetic in his small Wisconsin town.  This path ultimately led him to the practice of Ascension, which quickly revealed itself to be the quickest and most effective form of meditation he’d encountered.  Not long after learning, he made his way to an Ascension meditation center on the Oregon coast.  The practice brought him back to the profound, numinous, blissful Consciousness that is here for us in every moment, just waiting for us to come home.  He’s been teaching the practice in beginner’s classes and retreats since 2004.  For more information on Ishtar, one can also check out a recent Buddha at the Gas Pump interview
