“Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams than your comfort zone.” -Billy Cox
Self Development Secrets – You have all of these beautiful ideas floating around in your mind when it comes to the things you want to do with your life but all too often we let things like fear of failure get in the way of bringing our dreams to physical form. We all know someone in our lives who talk endlessly about all the things they’re going to do but they never actually do them… This could be a family member, a friend, or maybe it’s you.
Changing Your Life
What makes change so scary is that it puts us in a state of not-knowing. If we want to change our career, for example, we may be scared because we’re leaving a stable position in pursuit of a passion that may take some time before it pays off. In fact, in the back of your mind, you may think that it will never pay off. This is terrifying! But if you never try you’ll be locked into a different state of not-knowing. A kind of state where you’re always wondering about what could be.
AA Gabriel – You have been given limitless resources to use in your earth life. These limitless resources include wondrous beauty, relationships that affirm the divinity within you, freedom to be the best you can be, and an abundant flow of money. This flow of money is sometimes the most difficult of God’s gifts for you to see in your life. You stand in the midst of this energy, which can be used to make your life more comfortable, and yet many times, your ability to receive these resources is limited by your thoughts and by your resistance to receiving.
This energy from the Divine Source, which is called money, has the same properties inherent in it that any of God’s gifts have, such as Love and Joy. It is the strong energy of Life Force, which you can tap into, in order to receive the blessings of abundant cash flow.
One easy way to make yourself more available to money is by creating thoughts of unlimited resources in your mind. Your thoughts create your reality. When you entertain thoughts of lack, of “not enough” in your life, this translates in your world as not enough money to meet your needs. A shift in your thinking is necessary before you can attract an abundant level of income to yourself.
Sarah Varcas – August begins in the middle of an eclipse season which continues until the 15th. Last month was an intense journey for many, with solar and lunar eclipses challenging even the most balanced among us! As we embark on a new month we have one more solar eclipse to come on the 11th before things begin to ease.
Mars has been conjunct the South Node since the end of May, anchoring our attention in the past, rationalizing the adoption of old habits over new approaches and generally holding us back when we most needed to move forward. This has made recent weeks especially difficult as eclipse energies have demanded new responses while our instincts have told us security lies in the familiar.
This tie to the past weakens as August begins. For some it may feel like waking from a mysteriously seductive sleep in which reactions and behaviors have felt automatic and involuntary. From 5thAugust we should be far more present and better able to make informed decisions with clear intent rather than acting under the influence of unconscious impressions and emotions.

Mary O’Malley – A dear friend I have known since junior high, whom I have not seen for a couple of years, was coming to Seattle for a visit last month and we planned on getting together. We talked a few months before the visit and she gave me the dates that she would be here in Seattle, and I in return gave her general dates I would be available. Then we talked a month before the visit and I gave her specific dates as I was going to be out of town at the end of her visit. Not having heard from her I texted her the week before the visit to check-in about what dates we could get together.
All the dates she sent me were for the time that I was going to be out of town. That was the first inkling that this was going to be a teaching moment by Life. I told her that getting together with her was important to me and asked if there was any way that she could shift some things around. When she said no, it was like being hit with a sledgehammer in my stomach. Continue reading “Meeting the Deep Ache We All Carry”→
