Hello and welcome to the energy forecast for August 2015.
Before we do anything, I want you to just take a moment to breathe with me.
(Lee takes a deep breath in and out)
(Lee takes another deep breath in and out)
And one more for luck.
That feels good. I hope it feels good to you, too. Because at the moment there are so many energies flying round -- in our faces, in our bodies -- that just remembering to stop and breathe as many times a day as you feel you need to or want to will really just help to bring everything back to zero point. Because the fires are raging right now. They are raging.
If I backtrack a little through the year, I can see how a lot of fires were raging outside of us and coming towards us as a collective. And one of the observations I’ve made in the last couple of months is that now the fire seems to have gone into a much more inward phase and process.
So this summer is much more an inner time. This started in July and is carrying on through August. The summer is a more inner time of you coming to understand, meet, and allow fire in your life. This can show up in a multitude of ways - and not all of them pretty. But when you remember to stop and breathe, you can become conscious to this incredible inner fire rising in you right now, wanting to flush out every part of you that no longer serves you or that in the past has caused you pain, limitation, or in the worst case scenarios, damage. This is a time where everything is rising for you to not only examine the pieces and memories, but also to move things around ready for a different future.
You and Your Strength
As we go through life, we are given many opportunities to either compress our strength or expand our strength.
So if there is a bullying person in your life when you are young, you may decide that they have the power over you and then compress yourself in response to the bully. For example, you might have a sibling or another family member who is constantly putting you down. There are two ways that people will usually go due to that energy experience:
The Yes Person
You’ll either become a "yes person," someone who---because of the fear of the energy that the bully is sending at you---will start to collapse inside and become more meek. And the problem is, you then go around the world carrying that energy, and other bullies (other people who want to play 'Alpha' over you) will find you. They will see that energy, read it in you and target in. So the same unconscious victim-perpetrator dynamic will play out.
Conversely, you can become the rebel or the defensive person. You can push against the bully and be very defensive---locking your arms, locking your energy, learning to always push back. And the shadow side of being a defensive person or rebel is that you can block openness, vulnerability, and true intimacy in your life.
The Power Imbalance Scale - Victim/Perpetrator
So, I've given you the extreme examples of either end of that power imbalance scale. You might find yourself somewhere along that line from victim to perpetrator, and not just in life, but several times a day, on any given day!
Finding the Sweet Spot - Your True Inner Self
The truth is we all have both a personality and a soul that we come into this world looking to explore -- and it’s an individual experience for each of us.
You may not be a natural victim in your life, but you may have, through circumstances, become more of a victim than you were designed to be. You may also, through circumstance, have become more of a rebel than you were designed to be. So the sweet spot for all of us is finding and having a relationship with our true inner self.
Every time we get impacted in a relationship --- every time someone hurts us, wounds us, or brings our energy down --- there is a body impact. The energy of those emotions goes into the body and creates a deadness or density inside your body. Which means there is some life force that gets lost in there. There is a section of you that you can't access.
Kundalini Rising - Burning through the Density
Kundalini energy doesn't care about any of that stuff. Kundalini awakening is when your base chakra remembers your original primal fire of life: that which you came in with as a baby. And it starts to heat up, and it starts to rise and move its way all the way through your body. And what it's doing is it’s burning all of those areas of density so you can open your full spirit again.
You may be very unaware that kundalini energy is rising in you. But you may be aware that you’re suddenly remembering a past event and it's going round your memory and you’re remembering the feelings. That’s your, if you like, more mentally focused experience of how that kundalini energy is pushing things through you.
This happens naturally in life all the time. To say that it's been happening at a greater speed and intensity for more people than ever in the last five years would not be an exaggeration, and to say that it's been happening at evermore lightning speed in the last six months is very much what I'm seeing and feeling going on in the collective.
So right now, you're in the heart of a complete recalibration of who you are and who you are here to be.
That is a very big process. And even though what I'm describing might sound very personal and very much just about you and your life, it's never just about you and your life. Even a very self-centered or self-focused person is having a huge effect on the planet because they're walking around with their energy affecting everybody and affecting everything.
So, in a way, the idea of being self- focused or self-centered is mythic when it comes to the idea that a self-centered or self-focused person is not having an effect on others. In fact, often those are the people who might be triggering you left, right, and center. They might be having an almighty effect on you through their unconsciousness of the effect of their energy on others.
Sensitivity, Resistance, Compression & Other Positive Signals
So this word "trigger" is a word that many are going to be feeling right now. A greater sensitivity in you leads to you being a bit more trigger-able. Anything in your past that is unresolved --- any of these dense areas in the body, any of these past impacts --- is absolutely popping up and open right now so that you can become bigger, wider, and more present . . . more here.
Conversely, some of you will be experiencing an enormous resistance and heaviness to this process. You might feel like you've dug in your heels, and you may be experiencing a health crisis or other crisis in your life that has a lot of weight and density. You might be saying, “I don’t know what he's talking about. I just feel like utter crap.”
It's the same thing, it's just a different position on the energy scale. Essentially, when you feel that low or that compressed, the only reason that you’re feeling that low and that compressed --- and not liking or enjoying that feeling --- is because this fire is trying to push through you. It's trying to awaken you. It’s trying to rise. And everything inside you that can't let it come through is what starts to wobble and you go, “Argh! I’m really upset right now, I’m depressed. I'm…angry.”
Recognizing the Gift In Front of You - Fully Embracing THIS Life
So, sounds intense right? Well, it IS intense. And it's going to be particularly intense for those of you who are highly sensitive, highly conscious, and highly developed. But the beauty of it is that you'll also notice that it's a great time to fire and rewire who you are, what you're doing, and why you're here.
It's a great gift for all of us to remember that people are dying every day at very young ages. It's a great gift to remember that any day now anything can happen to any of our loved ones or to us as a group. THAT is the kind of remembrance that helps you to live!
"I've got this one opportunity in this physical body.”
Yes, there can be many lifetimes, there can be parallel lifetimes. But in this physical body, this identity that you know yourself to be, you’ve got one life. You’ve got one opportunity.
And as you are feeling uncomfortable about some of the suppression that is now coming to the surface --- whether that's repressed memories or parts of yourself that you abandoned in the past --- you might find yourself saying, “God, I can't believe that's how I behaved ten years ago.” You might find that either you're not pleased with the way you behaved or with the behavior you accepted from another.
When these things come up, breathe.
They are not coming up to make you run back to that person and go to war. They’re not coming up to make you look back on yourself with self- judgment or shame. They are coming up because they are moving out.
Preparing for the September - December Period
I spoke in July about the September to December period being a period on Earth where strength is going to come online for you in your life in an almighty new way.
This may be hard to believe for those of you who are currently on the depressed or crisis-end of the scale. But your depression and your crisis will keep moving. And September to December is a period where you can start to stabilize more.
Now, for those of you who are already flying high and full of positive life-force, it's going to be a directional energy that you will be able to bring to yourself September to December.
As I said in July, I encouraged you to this summer to try not to “do” in the outer world, unless it feels great to do so. Try and take the rest of this summer as a time to really be inner. There is an enormous rewiring going on inside people that, as I mentioned last month, can bring miraculous changes. But it takes time and you have to be patient with it.
More of you than ever before are right in the heart of this. And you'll see other people in your life, who maybe aren’t as conscious of that process, going into chaos, reaction, projection. You'll be tempted to join them sometimes -- especially if they come at you with chaos, reaction, projection. And you'll notice if you do join them --- if someone shouts at you and you suddenly find yourself shouting back --- it will feel odd. You might do it, but then you’ll go, “Oh, that's a bit weird.” It didn't feel authentic or true to you. That's when you know you've temporarily gotten off center and caught in someone else's energy vortex.
From Anger and Fire to Peace and Calm
But for most of you, despite this energy of fire that's going on at a really high level, the beauty of fire is the peace it reveals. It's an irony that often the opposite end of an energy scale supports the other. So fire and anger can really lead to peace and calm. They’re highly connected even though we tend to think of them as separate entities (we've been in the habit of thinking of everything as separate). But when you understand that everything is energy and thus connected --- all sentient life surrounding us here is energy and is having a relationship and a conversation all day long --- then you start to understand that you too are energy and are connected. And there is big energy --- a fire for life --- that is coming through you now and calling you forward.
Liberation from "What Other People Think"
In practical terms, how do the energies of August show up show up? Well, for you it's going to be a redefining of how you want to live. This can be seen on the global scale right now where we are, as a collective, trying to figure out and get our heads around some of the stuff that we’re seeing going on around us and what to do about that. That's the kind of wider world.
But on the more micro level, in your personal world, for many of you it will involve a radical shift in the way that you're relating to others, the work you're doing, where you're going, the way you want to live.
You might find that with relationships in your life right now you need to make some sudden changes that don't quite make sense to some of your friends or loved ones, but they really make sense to you. Trust that.
If you notice that some are resistant to you or that YOU are the concerned one, saying things like, “I can’t really do that because that’s going really shock them," I promise you this: In 2-3 months, they’re going to be in the same energetic dynamic. Because even if they're not in the same mindset as you right now, we’re all being affected by this catalystic energy of fire that is essentially heating everything up from below and within. It's melting down a lot of very metallic and dense energies that existed inside us as individuals and inside people all across the world.
So don't worry too much about what others are going to think about what you're doing. That's the liberation. You don't want to be as concerned about how people think about what you're doing; you want to be more aware of your place in the energy flow of things.
Trust that if you are feeling constricted by someone else's demands, there is a power dynamic playing out between the two of you that isn’t good for them either, ultimately. Because if someone is asking you to do something that feels constricting to you, they are also receiving an energy of constriction --- otherwise you wouldn't be feeling it!
Recognize that barometer in your own body and start trusting yourself. As we continue at this time on Earth to be feeling and sensing more than ever before, you’ve gotten really good at reading your sensory body.
The tricky part is practicing it . . . and practicing with it. It's one thing to be inspired by an inspirational video or book or an inspirational moment with a friend. It's another thing to take the inspiration and understanding and put it into action. It's a little more scary for us. It's a little more unknown. But we can do it!
Take Action This Month
--Breathe. Breathe whenever your emotions or sensations feel a little too intense.
--Choose pleasure, growth, and space. Make some different choices about things that will bring you either more pleasure, or more growth, or more space in your life. Actively look at how you can bring some of those aspects into your life because they ALL feed growth in you, which will feed the growth that you can offer to and give others.
--Forgive. Forgive yourself and forgive everyone for everything. It's a very famous practice. It shows up in many different religions and faiths - and in many different ways. Everyone is always doing their best, which is something you hear me say a lot, so if their best is repeatedly not serving you, and you can't discuss it with them, move away from them. Trust the dissonance and make a change rather than stay in the situation and build up more resentment or sadness.
--Release judgment. Forgiveness is very important for releasing self-judgment and clearing the judgment of others. Self-judgment and judgment of others are highly destructive energies -- energies we all feel at different times because we've grown up in a world that is full of them. The difference is, you can feel those things in yourself and breathe them out, asking yourself, “What's underneath this judgment? Why am I triggered? Why am I attacking myself? Why do I want to attack another?” You can choose to step out of the fight matrix that exists on our planet, because the fight matrix is getting very tempting right now. It wants to tempt people into the fight, which is the way that fire has often been used in our world.
Fire Used for Love Is Extraordinary
Fire used for love is the kind of energy that we see in those people who selflessly go around the world serving love, serving peace. They are some of the great masters on our planet. Some of these are the taxi driver, the lady who works in the flower shop, the man in the apartment across the hall from you --- masters appear in countless roles.
Check In: How Are You Mastering Your Fire This Month?
If you're afraid of your fire, trust it. It will give you a life unlike anything you've known.
If you're enjoying your fire, ride it, have a good time, but be mindful. It will be too much for some people. So be aware of where you can go to fully be in your fire without other people having a negative or opposing reaction to it.
The rebel in you might say, “I don't care. I want to unleash my fire.” But trust me, if you're unleashing your fire at someone who doesn't want it unleashed, their constriction is going to affect your energy flow. This is why being a defensive rebel is a lose-lose for everybody.
Listening, Being and Loving
There is a place in the middle that involves listening and being. And if you get that balance right --- if you can be yourself and listen for direction to find the places and the people where you can go to be yourself --- you get bigger, you get wider, you get fuller. And the end result really is more love for life and more love for others. This is the energy paradigm that we need more of on the planet right now as we go through this transformation.
So, I wish you all love and luck with this coming month. And I will see you again in September.
For those of you coming to the London and Norway events in this month of August, I'm excited to be with all of you. They are both now sold out, but I will do more again in the future.
Also this month: I have a new MP3 available called Authentic Power - Igniting the Fire of Your Soul. If you wanted to check that out, it's free to all members of The Portal or you can check it out here.
And finally, a huge thank you to those of you who donate. Many of you send in financial donations and that's wonderful. It really supports the work that we produce here. And so many of you send loving, wonderful messages --- and that is huge. Thank you so much.
Lots of love everybody. Take care and have a great month.
