Ascension Report July 2018 - Full Spread

This report is based upon the energies of July, 2018, and provides channeled guidance on the ways in which we can collectively accelerate our ascension process within our individual realities. If you are here reading this, trust that these messages are meant for your highest and greatest good, delivered with intentions of love, unity, compassion and healing.

Ascension Report July 2018 - Week Spread

The messages aligned with the aspects of the Higher Self are those that we may wish to place our full attention on, and direct our energy and focus toward for the purposes of expanding our consciousness and raising our personal vibrational frequency, for our ascension and evolution. The Higher Self is the multidimensional part of ourselves that is infinite and all-knowing, and represents our soul consciousness at its highest level. When in alignment with our Higher Selves, we are able to fully embody unconditional love, compassion, and bliss. Our Higher Self is who we are at our core, and represents our purest essence.

The Shadow Aspects are those which may lie below the surface of our conscious awareness, and need to be brought forward in order to heal, release, transcend and/or integrate with our higher selves. These could represent perceived thought patterns creating blockages, or lower-vibrational aspects of our reality that we must become aware of in order to transmute and shift.  Ascension activities and journal prompts will be suggested to deeply explore and integrate these messages.

July 1 – 7  *Week 1*

Ascension Report July 2018 - Week 1

Higher Self – Six of Cups

For the first week of July, the Six of Cups comes to us in the position of our Higher Self, asking us to journey deep below the surface of our consciousness, to remember our roots, and who we are at our deepest level.

It asks us to examine the components that make us who we are, and define how we show up in the world. What do we believe in? What do we stand for? Are our words and actions in alignment with these truths?

Our colorful, interconnected experiences help to shape stable and balanced identities above the surface, yet we can only grow as tall as our roots run deep. Our consciousness can only expand in proportion to the work we have done within. We can only meet others as deeply as we have met ourselves.

We must hold compassion for ourselves and others, while examining all the areas in which we hold criticism or judgment. Once these areas have been examined, we can then use this as a mirror to look within ourselves at where we need healing. As you journey deeply, you will find the answer. Apply tenderness, compassion, and love to these wounds. Allow for the release of anything you have uncovered that no longer serves your highest intention, and that is no longer in alignment with your truth.

Forgive yourself and others, and offer gratitude for the beautiful lessons you have acquired as a result of this experience. Remind yourself that you and everyone else is exactly where they need to be, doing the best they can from their level of awareness. Acknowledge how special and unique you are to this world, as no one else can do the work that you will do because nobody else has had the same experiences that you have had. You are one of a kind, and incredibly vital to the collective evolution of this planet at this time. Use this knowledge wisely and compassionately.

Shadow – Daughter of Swords

The Daughter of Swords comes to us in our shadow aspect this week, indicating that there are certain elements of our being that we may be feeling insecurities around. Perhaps you have an idea or an interest, but feel you are not ready to speak up or share your knowledge about it. Perhaps you are fearful of expressing yourself fully and authentically, and are resistant to completely embodying your truth. Perhaps you are holding on tightly to a certain belief or thought pattern that is no longer serving you.

Whatever the case may be for you individually, it seems that these insecurities are creating resistance towards fully trusting your own internal guidance system, and developing the full expression of your intuitive abilities. It is time that we examine the foundations that our thoughts and beliefs are based upon, in order to identify our insecurities and fully release self-doubt. With this, we can start to cultivate confidence and a sense of self-worth, and realize we are deserving simply for being human. We have a divine right to be seen and heard.

As we identify thoughts and beliefs that are standing in the way of our feelings of worthiness, we can practice compassion and forgiveness, for both ourselves and others. Who do we need to forgive from our past in order to move forward in our future? Remember to set the intention to continuously move forward. Do not let the wounds of the past steal the joy that exists in this present moment, or rob the creative potential that you hold within you.

When you allow yourself to express yourself fully and authentically, you give others permission to do the same. Through your own courage and perseverance, you pave the way for others to step into alignment with their truth. As we examine all that shapes us, we can use discernment to decide what is within us that we are able to let go of, that no longer aligns with our truth and serves our highest intentions.

Integration

Here are some activities to engage in this week, to integrate the shadow aspect with that of the higher self. These activities are given as basic guidelines to explore these elements in your own way, yet as always, please feel free to reach out if you feel you need further guidance and suggestions.

July 8 – 14 *Week 2*

Ascension Report July 2018 - Week 2

Higher Self – Son of Swords

For the second week of July, the Son of Swords comes to us in the position of our Higher Self asking us to remain crystal clear in our thoughts and intentions, and move forward with swift action towards that which we wish to manifest and create in our subjective realities.

The Son of Swords in the higher self aspect correlates beautifully with the astrological events of the week, as there are a number of eclipses set to take place in the cosmos, the first of which will occur on the new moon of July 12. The eclipse is a time of massive transformation and awakening, as these energies will reveal to you all aspects of your shadow that need to be integrated, accepted, and transmuted. While the week before we explored how our experiences created our realities and translated into how we show up in the world, this week we are being asked to take action to make changes on certain aspects of ourselves, in order to more fully align with Who We Are at our core.

For the first week in July, we examined who we are at our deepest level. We were asked to weed out all of the threads of doubt or insecurity within our consciousness that were no longer serving us, and integrate all aspects of our being. We examined how these different interconnected experiences translated into how we present ourselves to the world. The Son of Swords now asks you to take action. Are your thoughts in alignment with what you want to create? Are you focusing on what you desire for the future or are you stuck in a negative past experience? Wherever your thoughts are directed, that is where your energy will flow.

The Son of Swords reminds us to be direct, clear, and action-oriented when it comes to putting our intentions out into the Universe. As we explored different aspects of our being and personalities the week prior, the energies have been building up to a peak, and now we are being asked to fully step into our power and our potential, and go after exactly what we want. Now is the most potent time for manifestation and planting those seeds of intention into fertile, New Moon, Eclipse energy.

Shadow – Six of Wands

The Six of Wands comes to us in our shadow aspect this week, indicating that there may be areas where we feel afraid to step outside of our comfort zone, and align fully with that which we want to manifest. This card asks us to identify these areas of fear, and create actionable steps to transmute these energies into higher ones that more fully serve our purpose.

What forces are keeping us stuck in a certain place, and what action needs to be taken for those fears to be released so that we are able to rise above them and reach our full potential? The Six of Wands is a card of victory, and in the shadow aspect this week, it indicates that there are various elements of our experiences that we need to let go of so that we may rise above them.

It is now time to release all fear, self-doubt, self-criticism, people, places, environments and experiences that no longer serve our highest potential, and are no longer in alignment with who we are and who we wish to be moving forward. In each and every moment, we have a choice as to how we want to show up for ourselves and others, and how we leave our mark on the world. Our patterns and behaviors create ripples that affect the collective at every point in time. Our shadow is asking us, will we rise above to new heights or become trapped in a lower density? In each and every moment, the choice is always ours to make.

The Six of Wands serves as a reminder for us that we are able to achieve anything that we can focus on with clarity, intention, and determination (Son of Swords), yet in order to embody this full alignment, it is necessary to identify and transcend those experiences which may be holding you back. We cannot ascend fully if we are trapped in a negative thought or behavioral pattern. While these encounters and experiences once served an important purpose for our soul’s growth, certain elements are no longer needed for our optimal functioning in the Now. It is time to rise above, stand in your full potential, glory, and beauty, and experience profound transformation that will put you on track to becoming your best self.

Integration

Here are some activities to engage in this week, to integrate the shadow aspect with that of the higher self. These activities are given as basic guidelines to explore these elements in your own way, yet as always, please feel free to reach out if you feel you need further guidance and suggestions.

-New Moon Ceremony

-Program Crystals

-Crystal Grids

-Affirmations & Mantras

Journal about exactly what you wish to manifest at this point in your life. Challenge yourself to be extremely clear, precise, and focused on exactly what you want. Where is your focus directed?

What can you do to be more focused and positively action oriented towards your goals? How can you put yourself in full alignment with your desired outcome? How will you harness this buildup of energy and use it to your full potential to create change in your life?

What fears do you have around stepping out of your comfort zone and into your zone of “genius?”

List any perceived obstacles that you face in terms of achieving your goals, they can be personal insecurities, fears, people and environments. Now explore all the ways to transcend these blockages so you are able to rise above

Create a mantra, affirmation, or write yourself notes to keep your vibration high and your thoughts trained on what you are creating.

Create a vision board that makes you feel excited and hopeful when you look at it. Put pictures and phrases on it of everything that you want to have in your life for the next six months to a year. Keep track of when you manifest each item on your vision board!

**I have many more channeled journal prompts that I will gladly share if you desire**

July 15 – 21 *Week 3*

Ascension Report July 2018 - Week 3

Higher Self – Mother of Pentacles

For the third week of July, the Mother of Pentacles comes to us in the position of our Higher Self asking us to focus our energy on nurturing ourselves, our loved ones, our spaces, our possessions, and our finances. It is a reminder to fill up our own cups first, so that we have an abundant reserve to offer others. We cannot nurture and help from a space of depletion, so self-care is very important this week, in order to make sure we are giving ourselves all that we need to function optimally and move through this current space.

Examine all areas in your life where you might need some extra assistance, and then verbalize this need to others. We will not get what we do not ask for. Now is a time to focus on delegating certain tasks to others, and living in harmony with those around us. The Mother of Pentacles energy protects and soothes all aspects of the physical so that we may ground to embody stability and balance for optimal functioning. She is soft, she is nurturing, she is caring and loving, but she doesn’t stand for anything misaligned with her nature.

The Mother of Pentacles also reminds us to care for our sacred vessels, our bodies, our minds, and our souls. This week would be a perfect time to go on a health cleanse or detox, set intentions around eating healthy vibrant foods, begin a new exercise regimen, and even clear up any areas of instability or uncertainty surrounding our finances. Practice grounding your energy by  taking a walk outside barefoot. Sit underneath a tree and appreciate the strength of the roots and the expanse of its leaves and branches. Feel nurtured and revitalized by the oxygen it provides for us. In financial matters, take care of any bills and ensure that your affairs are in order so there is no time and energy wasted feeling stressed out about this domain.

We are encouraged to set sacred space to reflect, harmonize and care for ourselves. In order for this to occur, we may find it helpful to declutter and clean our spaces. Release any possessions that are no longer serving a purpose, and instead are taking up valuable space and resources. Recycle, donate, sell, discard, and release physical items in your environment, which are no longer needed. Notice and become aware of how the energy within our spaces contributes to our feelings of well-being. This activity will cultivate appreciation, gratitude, and awareness of how elements in our physical realities can impact our overall mood and energy levels.

Shadow – Father of Cups

The Father of Cups comes to us in our shadow aspect this week, indicating that we must continue to honor every aspect of our emotions in order to achieve mastery of them. Once we are able to master our emotions, we can fine tune our energetic frequency, and remain in alignment with who we are and how we show up for others.

The Father of Cups asks us to examine our shadowy emotions, and recognize ways we can practice and embody unconditional love for ourselves and others, so we can feel and fully express that nurturing, safe, loving energy the Mother of Pentacles brings through our higher self aspect. The Father energy provides the structure, stability and support for the nurturing Mother energy to blossom in its full expression. It is time to ask ourselves how we are balancing the divine masculine and the divine feminine to bring them into balance, so that our creative energy and potential can be fully harnessed. We are being asked to respond to any emotions that arise within us, as well as to any conflict we experience, from the space of our love. We are being guided to embody love with every thought, word and action.

At this time, many have been experiencing deep emotions coming to the surface of our awareness, that had previously been buried. Our shadows are being revealed to us, and only we can make the decision to face them, accept them, and move through. We are in the midst of massive transformation energetically, and as a result, can be feeling a need to seek physical and emotional balance. It is time to look at the ways we process our emotions, and explore whether we allow them to fully be expressed, or if there are parts that we repress and bury. Whenever we are moving through difficult emotions, it is important to fully feel them so they are able to be released. In doing this, we are able to learn and acknowledge the lessons these emotions bring for us.

Our emotions are our strongest messengers, and are the key to manifestation. The Father of Cups reminds us that when we are in complete balance emotionally, we are able to embody compassion, live from our heart space, and nurture ourselves so we are able to care for others. In balance, we are able to live in alignment with our highest truth, and attract our deepest desires into our reality. We are able to find flow and movement when faced with density or stagnation. Honor every emotion. Practice forgiveness and compassion. Live in alignment with your heart.

Integration

Here are some activities to engage in this week, to integrate the shadow aspect with that of the higher self. These activities are given as basic guidelines to explore these elements in your own way, yet as always, please feel free to reach out if you feel you need further guidance and suggestions.

-Clean the space you spend the most time in. What areas feel stagnant or need clearing? Where can you release items that no longer serve your needs? Practice donating, recycling, discarding, and releasing in order to clear space in your environments for new, fresh energy.

-Health Cleanse or Fast/detox

-Pay off bills, put money into savings, create a budget

-Enjoy a self-care or “spa” day where you focus on the physical aspects of your being. Pamper yourself and notice how you feel before and afterwards.

Journal Prompts:

-In what ways can you more fully embody unconditional love for yourself and others? Who or what situation do you need to forgive?

-What aspects of your own being are coming up as your shadow, and what intentions will you set/actions will you take to integrate the shadow aspects with the higher self?

-What actions can be taken to incorporate a sense of flow when faced with stagnation?

Advice, Metaphysical, Spiritual, Tarot, Universe

New Moon in Taurus

THE NEW MOON

The new moon is a time for intention setting, new beginnings, and going within to determine what action needs to be taken, and what needs to be nurtured and cultivated within your reality. Just as the moon is new and will reveal more and more of itself over the upcoming weeks, so too will this new intention, seed, or project begin to grow and become illuminated with your focus, love and care

TAURUS

The energy of Taurus reminds us to take things slow and steady, by focusing on stability, self-care and nurturing ourselves in our physical realities. Take the time to indulge in creature comforts and luxury during this lunar cycle. Reconnect with nature, spend time with your family and enjoy relationships with loved ones. Now is also a good time to set intentions around finances, family, health, and career.

THE READING

18192766_1797901237193436_7906320105294597443_o

I was called to use the Animal Spirit Deck from The Wild Unknown, Connected and Free Oracle by Inner Hue, Goddess Guidance Oracle by Doreen Virtue, and The Wild Unknown Tarot. The crystals pictured here include clear quartz, an amethyst pyramid, rough amethyst, a rose quartz pyramid, and finally, my Lemurian quartz record keeper master healer. Palo Santo was used to cleanse and clear the decks, as well as cleanse the surrounding energy. A Reiki healing energy ball was placed above the cards, and the intention was set to infuse into the reading and deliver healing energy to all who accept it. The Animal Spirit Deck will provide an animal totem for this lunar cycle, and the Goddess Guidance will provide a Goddess we may connect with during this lunar cycle, as we set our intentions and plant the seed of new beginnings at this time.

THE REVEAL

2017-04-26 22.12.37

VULTURE

VULTURE comes to us today as a guardian and purifier, and to remind us that in order to start fresh, we must clear out all of the old patterns and programming within us. VULTURE energy is essential for re-balance, as this very creature helps to balance our ecosystem by clearing away decay as well as dense and toxic energy. VULTURE is undervalued and misunderstood, yet is so important because it essentially does all the dirty work, cleaning up messes that nobody else would touch. During this new moon, ask your higher self, guides, angels, ascended masters, and even source, to reveal to you any stagnant energetic patterns that need to be released (which you can do at the full moon). Over these upcoming weeks, make a list of things you would like to release or get rid of, and all that is no longer serving you. If these stagnant or dense energies are not cleared out and removed, there is no room for new, fresh, revitalized energy to come in, and this energetic block can disrupt our own balance, harmony and stability.

CROWN CHAKRA

This card symbolizes the need to be open to receive during this new moon. Just as VULTURE clears away toxic or stagnant energies that no longer serve our highest and greatest good, our CROWN CHAKRA serves as a direct connection to source. We cannot receive downloads and messages from our guides if we are blocked or disconnected, just as we cannot feel supported, connected or balanced when this energy center is closed off or stuck. We may feel unsupported or direction-less if we are experiencing an issue with our CROWN CHAKRA. When this chakra is open and balanced, we feel plugged-in, connected, supported, and in the flow of life. We experience vibrancy, creativity, and zest. This card comes to us to remind us that we are all divine beings, and this chakra represents our connection to the divine. Once you have identified any stagnant energies to be cleared, visualize pure white or violet light entering and filling your CROWN CHAKRA, which surrounds the top of your head. Imagine this healing white or violet light cleansing and clearing away any debris stuck within your CROWN CHAKRA. As you breathe in deeply, visualize this light filling up and surrounding your head. As you exhale, imagine any debris or toxic energy being pushed out of your auric field. You can also do this exercise with all of your chakras, at the end pushing out the “energetic debris” through the bottoms of your feet and root chakra, giving it back to the earth to be transformed and transmuted. The crystals that will assist you with this process include selenite, amethyst, moonstone, clear quartz, or spirit quartz.

ABUNDANTIA

ABUNDANTIA is the goddess of prosperity who is with us at the time of the new moon in Taurus. She reminds us that we must be open to receive, falling right in line with VULTURE energy, and the clearing and opening of the CROWN CHAKRA. Once we have cleansed and cleared, we must remain open to receive the abundance of the Universe. When we focus on our many blessings and offer gratitude for all that is good in our lives, we prompt the Universe to continue to give us this abundance and prosperity. Notice the stars around the top of her head or crown chakra, as this symbolizes that she is connected, balanced, and open to receive abundance. Do not worry about the source of this abundance, as the Universe will take care of that. It is your job to focus on becoming clear and open to receive, and also acknowledging this abundance we are gifted with currently. This card also allows us to focus on finances and prosperity, and is a reminder to acknowledge the support and comfort you receive from others. At this time of the new moon in Taurus, ABUNDANTIA reminds us to notice new ideas, feelings and visions within, as this guidance gives new direction about actions to take in conjunction with her assistance. Write down this “newness” in a journal, so you are able to reflect back upon their manifestation at the time of the full moon. Offer gratitude for all kinds of prosperity you receive during this lunar cycle, including increased time, ideas, other forms of support, and of course, financial gain.

THE WILD UNKNOWN TAROT

Seven of Pentacles

Keywords: Contemplation, Reward

The SEVEN OF PENTACLES represents a change of direction in our physical realities, falling right in line with the concept of new beginnings and earthly energy during this new moon cycle. We might find that it is a time to contemplate where we are currently, and where we want to go. This card represents hard work and a great deal of physical effort being put into a project, a career, or our health & bodies. Take this time during the new moon to appreciate how far you have come with this venture, and celebrate the accomplishments you have had up to this point. Do not forget to assess the direction you would like to move towards, by identifying where you would like to end up in the future. Now is the time for evaluation, in order to decide what changes need to be made, and what needs to remain for our highest and greatest good, so we are able to move forward productively.

Five of Pentacles

Keywords: Sadness, Illness, Loss

The FIVE OF PENTACLES, comes as an indication of what may happen if we do not take this time to reflect, rest and set intentions, as advised in the seven of pentacles. After acknowledging and appreciating our accomplishments, we need to decide what it is we should release for our highest and greatest good. This release may feel like a loss, but it will make room for the good that is to come. This card also comes as a warning, that if we do not stop and take this time to reflect and go inward (as described in the seven of pentacles), we might find ourselves becoming ill, for without rest, there is no room for appreciation, reflection, and acknowledgment. It is as though the rose pictured is weary, exhausted, and defeated, unable to see the resources and abundance that exists right above its head. This rose may have a blocked crown chakra! We become tired, drained, and sick if we are not consistently cleansing our energy and taking the necessary time out for self-care. Get back in line with source! It is so important to appreciate what you have, and let go of what no longer serves you, while taking that necessary pause for rest and relaxation. Give yourself permission to be taken care of. Give yourself permission to protect your energy. Sometimes, it is more damaging to hold on to something not meant for us, than it is to let it go, and this card is the perfect illustration of that.

Eight of Pentacles

Keywords: News, Change, Action

The EIGHT OF WANDS comes to us as our outcome card, and it is as if a rainbow colored bolt of lightning has struck us, and all of our creative endeavors are rejuvenated and refreshed. Our intentions will manifest, and the seed that has been planted during the new moon will be infused with new creativity and life force energy that will propel us forward in all of our ventures, fulfilling all of our desires. This is the card of reignited passion and potential, and you may find life being brought back into something that you had once forgotten or neglected. It could even be ourselves, as we recover from the five of pentacles. This is the burst of energy we get once we cleanse and release the past, and finally let go what no longer serves our highest and greatest good. This card may indicate an arrival of good news, inspired energy and creativity, and of everything falling into place, only to be then activated with the momentum of renewed inspiration. This card is a wonderful way to wrap up this lunar cycle, and gives us new hope for the future.

Introduction

Join me on this Lucid Journey…

That which is in my head I must begin to write down, for the fleeting moments in time and space never have a definite beginning nor end

There will be few challenges to this, including the task of consistency and at least minimal organization, which to a creative and distracted mind are all but prison sentences, yet hopefully I will be able to assert discipline in my passionate purpose for spreading the type of knowledge contained henceforth.

You will come to find, if anybody is actually reading this, that there may be many different voices, what may seem like unfinished mismatched topics and ideas, possibly a bit scattered, but please bear with me, these categories will converge into a pattern that will come to have some sort of great meaning to you.  Each individual will take from it exactly what it is that they are ready to learn at that exact moment.  Each experience will be unique.  The entire process is a learning experience for all parties involved.  I am here to assist and guide, to inspire thought and to provide connections, examples and revelations of how everything and everyone within this great Universe is so intricately connected.  We are all one.

The information on these pages is subject to change, evolve, amend, shift, contradict, explain, heal, inspire, awaken, change your life, and everything in between.  This will all come to make sense in time, yet we must remain malleable in our convictions, because that is exactly what the Universe is doing, and as we must do, as the Universe expressing itself in human form.  Allow us to enhance our perspective to reach those views that are not our own. If you have indeed been brought here to interpret these words at a different time and place from when they originated, then one must trust the message within that energy and push forward, as there are wonderful secrets and mysteries to be unraveled.  It is all present in the journey of life. I am here to help the process of evolution, of awakening, of shifting to higher consciousness through the process of expressing gratitude for the magnificent planet on which we came to find ourselves upon.  There will not be just one topic contained within, no label, an intangible feel and flow, yet a vast array of topics of which I dabble in, some much more than others.  Above all, I am here for my fellow human being.  I am an advice giver. I’ve been there.  I’ve found there is a continual search for balance.  I am here for you.  I want to change the world, who doesn’t?  I make things, creating that which can heal & help those who are willing.  I observe, I notice a great deal. I drink way too much coffee.  I read everything, research, relentlessly search for answers.  I’ve begun to find those answers.  And now it is my time to share those answers (or at least my interpretation of those answers) with the incredibly unique soul who is reading this now and deciding whether or not to continue.

The use of symbolism in our daily culture can give us tremendous meaning to our lives, while also re-embracing our power as individuals, when so many of us have been blinded by the fears and attitudes of others.  If you believe you are ready, willing and able to have your eyes opened and your reality forever changed, please continue reading.  I hope you will choose to take this journey, because your life will change and you will not be disappointed.  We are all journeying through life.  It is time.  Stay aware, stay lucid, and join together as one, since we are all connected.  We are all in this together.  Thanks to the Universe for bringing you here, we’ve got a lot to move forward with

Universal gratitude & Never-ending love
