July is an introspective month. We tend to think of July as celebrations, vacations, and fireworks and that is so intuitive of us because July IS about our independence, our freedom, our respect for ourselves and one another, and our right to make any and all empowered choices about our own life. And this is precisely the energy of number 7, July being the 7th month. We cannot feel and be independent without going within to know what we are now wanting and choosing; we cannot feel our right to be fully and completely free without going within and finding the Truth of that statement and the feeling of that Truth; we need to go deeply within in order to feel and find our deep connection with all other beings, in oneness, in order to feel, act, and be in complete respect for everyone, regardless of outer circumstances; and we cannot find the “inner knowingness” of making the best empowered choices for ourselves without going within to find that clarity and that empowerment. So even though we may think that July is outgoing because it highlights fireworks, celebration, vacations (time away from our routine), and independence, you can see how, indeed, these attributes are quiet accurate and do reflect the energies of 7.
This month, allow yourself to flow easily with these energies for they have the ability to gift us with our greatest treasures. Like the mythical treasures of old, we need to dig for and mine these gifts, which may not look like a gift at first. The outside of a geode does not give a hint of the glorious beauty, light, and radiant crystals contained within a geode. The inner journey is an exquisite and engaging journey, full of immeasurable beauty that reveals to us inner treasures beyond our imaginings. Use any form you resonate with to go within this month: meditation, creative endeavors, journaling, being in nature, making vision boards or collages, etc. etc. etc. If it calls to you, then it is your way inward. Happy Mining!!!
