June is complete and tomorrow we begin the hot summer month of July here in the Midwest.
I am feeling inspired and refocused after a beautiful Viben Fest weekend in my home with some old and new friends. Lots of juicy conversations, time inside while the rains poured down on Friday, and time outside, floating in the pool on Saturday. The beauty of community always fills me back up with its play and laughter. When we see ourselves reflected in those around us, we are given the opportunity to stretch past our own comfort zones and pre-existing limitations.
Stretching - "Causing someone to make maximum use of their talents or abilities; adapting or extending the scope of something in a way that exceeds a reasonable or acceptable limit..."
As we honor the astrological shift into Cancer (Latin for the crab who carries its own home on its back), the invitation for each of us is to continue stretching who we know ourselves to be. For some, that means setting new goals or beginning new projects. For others, that can be gently allowing in more Love, more conversations, more experiences of Life.
I believe the reason we have human experiences and play on Earth is because we are continually expanding at a Soul level. Sometimes those stretches are easy and other times it feels like we are in the center of a tug-of-war and we're not sure which side is going to win! Wherever you find yourself, I trust it is already perfect.
And so, I will simply share where I Am in this moment.
I carried the inspiration of the way I saw myself being reflected in the Viben Fest community into my meditation time on Monday and then played with creating a Vision Board for the rest of this summer.
My intention is to share my book, One Day, with Oprah in a conversation under the Oaks at her home in California. Yes, this is a stretch from the "reality" of my life in this moment. And yet, I believe in the power of co-creation. I believe in setting "unreasonable expectations" and then aligning with the power of the Universe to have magic unfold!
The joy is definitely in the journey, in the steps along the way to the final intention / destination. So I am delighting in the pieces that I am preparing in my work that will allow me to hold a bigger stage: welcoming new clients, making changes to my website and edits to my book, uploading the ebook, creating a new Instagram account for "One Day is Here," releasing old Soul Shine / Viben replays... many, many steps, all headed in the direction of more people becoming aware of this Infinite idea of Consciousness and Love.
I am stretching. In SO many ways.
As an Orion / Moon Soul Filter, I am often holding space for all of those around me and so it is a new and somewhat uncomfortable stretch for me to allow others to hold big space for ME! To receive in just as much as I give out. And also... it feels beautiful to receive such encouragement, love, and support for my vision... One Day, Oprah, it is going to be a pleasure to meet you in person.
For many of us, stretching is often directly connected to Abundance.
When we hold ourselves small and tight, we limit the amount of joy, love, money, time, well-being, and experiences that are available to us here in this life. As we begin this new month of July, I am holding a theme of Abundance for the five Viben Now! meditation calls. We are exploring this idea by clearing blocks that are in the way of stretching our space and allowing ourselves to receive more from Life.
When (because I am replacing the word "if" in my vocabulary!) this topic resonates with you, I invite you to join us for one guided meditation call ($11 exchange) or all five in July ($55 exchange).
Doreen Virtue offers that 11 is the number associated with "keeping your thoughts positive because your thoughts are manifesting instantly into form," and 55 represents transformation, "a period of out with the old, in with the new, as we welcome the changes that bring new blessings." The way we do one thing is often the way we do all things, and so exploring this topic of Abundance in whatever area feels most relevant to you then ripples awareness out into other areas of your life.
For those whose Sunday mornings are already booked, the vibration of the meditation and the space that I hold is directly attached to the call, which makes the replay a powerful space to step into at any time. And the visualization process we follow can be applied easily into your own meditation time during the week.
We are going to have some fun with this topic because I trust in the Abundance of Joy and I am holding that as my foundation for the month of July!
Last week we also gathered for the Viben Circle and set intentions for this New Moon of Cancer. It is a busy month ahead and so I invite you to mark your calendars now for Sunday, July 23rd at 6pm for our next Viben Circle here in my home. The community is gathering again!
My heart is full and eager as I continue to stretch beyond who I know myself to be in this moment. Let's play, Friends!
Sending you warm sunshine and SO much love!
