The month of August 2017 is a time of emotional healing and deep sensitivity to all of our surrounding environments.
The healing that will be taking place is specific to our Heart and Lung meridian, as we have the appearance of double 8’s in the Heart calculation (Heart is Month of 8 + Gift of 8). The double 8’s of August will be a force to be reckoned with, as the overall number for 2017 is a 10, and number 10 is “All or Nothing!.”
The opportunity for healing will occur primarily in our perception of how we have experienced our personal power being effective; or, being thwarted, blocked, or destroyed. In any area where there has been a loss of love, creative potential, money, or health, this is where we’ll feel the pinch.
It will be rather easy to feel triggered by people or the environments, as our subconscious mind is releasing the old hurt and revealing our coping mechanism patterns. However, if you don’t look at these issues, how can you ever heal them? “Reveal to Heal” could be the motto for now, as nearly everyone will be emotionally upchucking some level of disappointment from a hurtful part of life’s Memory Lane.
However, at the same time, there is potential for a huge transformational shift as the number 18 appears in the Base calculation (Base is month of 8 +Year of 10). This affects us in our relationships, allowing for the possibility of breaking free from karmic patterns that have had a grip on us for lifetimes. Number 18 is a “life cycle” number, and indicates a turning point of completion, with new opportunities just around the corner—as in the month of September, not too far away!
There are 6 days when the “fur could be flying,” so tread lightly and have a light touch in your dealings with people on the 8th, 10th, 17th, 19th, 26th, and 28th. Easy does it.
So, the next step must be solution oriented, and we have several options to work with. Number 8 is the Air Element, and you must stay aerobically active so your heart and lungs can release.
“Mix it Up!” could be another motto for this month, don’t just walk 3 miles on your own, find ways to incorporate a different approach. Social connectivity is important now, and there is an excellent website called Meetup.com, which lists a variety of activities that include intensive walks in nature or urban environments, interest groups for stay-at-home Moms, and a plethora of other fun stuff. Open up a new window, and let some fresh air inside.
Sometimes in our most private and sheltered moments we feel the need to cry on someone else’s shoulder, and know that they are there for us in a space of unconditional love. And sometimes it can feel as if there is no one there for us, which really hurts. We need a way to cover this space, this gap, because it may occur in August.
One of the most precious and sometimes overlooked jewels of the Kundalini Yoga tradition is the Tratakam Meditation. It uses a picture of Yogi Bhajan that was taken when he was in a very high meditative state. When you have a proper photographic copy of the picture you can really feel the energy coming through. By placing a framed copy of the Tratakam photo on your altar, placing a candle in front of it, and sitting in a relaxed posture gazing into Yogi Bhajan’s eyes, you are directly connecting to the Golden Chain. The Golden Chain is the lineage of ascended Masters of Kundalini Yoga. What better place could you possibly look for support? Who else is going to be there for you 24/7, rain or shine, and no ridiculous counseling fee?
Invest in yourself through your meditative practice at this time. Give yourself a chance, and know that the higher hand of grace, support, guidance, and love is always there for you.
As I was writing this forecast, I was strolling down Memory Lane myself, remembering a time during the summers in Espanola when Yogi Bhajan would teach at Women’s Camp. Those were the good ole’ days, as we would gather in the late afternoon for the evening lecture.
The lecture topics would wildly run the gamut of health, yoga, relationships, diet, current events, and--one fine day, life on other planets. Yes, we sat there spell-bound as he expounded on the types of life-forms on other planets, sometimes even giving the planets names, and describing their activities. Out of all the examples, the one that stuck out the most to me was a planet where he said that, “Life begins and ends in the blink of an eye.” This absolutely stunned and amazed me. It almost seemed a bit scary at first, and then I thought, “Wow, a place where you are constantly able to start over again--a fresh start just around the corner.”
That is the hidden gift of August: the potential to rise from the ashes of the past and start anew. You probably wouldn’t think that Yogi Bhajan and Dave Ghrol would be on the same page with this, and yet, these are amazing times. For your transformational enjoyment I have included a link to the song “Times Like These.” My favorite verse in the lyrics is:
“I, I’m a new day rising, I’m a brand new sky to hang the stars upon tonight.”
Can you believe in yourself that beautifully, with such passion and vitality, that in times like these you learn to live and love again?
This is the month of August my friends, the opportunity to let the old damaged you die, and be resurrected into the shiny new upgrade of your spectacular self. You just really need to be able to let the old resentments, judgments, and pain go. Let It go, so there can be a space for the new frequency to work it’s magic.
Number 8 is healing energy, and in order to offer every best option and avenue of healing, I am including two Bach Flower Essences that may help you. The remedies of Mustard and Pine can be added to your drinking water, as Mustard is said to help with grief, and Pine is said to help dissipate the feeling of “pining away” for a person or lost cause.
“Now is the time, and the time is now.” August is going to catch your attention one way or another, so why not get the jump start on it by being pro-active for your higher self?
Raising your own vibrational frequency is one of the most direct ways to help the planet, and by doing so you are a Healer in your own right and might as we journey together on our path homeward. Sat Nam.
