What a great card for today as I return from a social media break. We all have moments where for our own good and sanity we must step away from the computer, turn off our phones, and spend time with loved ones, with ourselves, and in nature. Life becomes so hectic that we lose touch with our own spirit. Constantly are we bombarded with external energies, ideas, beliefs, and/or concepts that we literally can feel as if we are being swept out to sea. If you have noticed feeling this way, take time away from social media to really disconnect with the world and instead reconnect to your spirit. You may learn things you never even realized you didn’t know. I had this experience after struggling with an issue for 5 years! 5 years!
Breaks are good and vital. When its time to return, you will do so feeling much better, inspired, grounded and centered. Almost like a new person.

What beautiful yet transformational energy is present today and for the next several days. In fact, I’m certain much of it is due to the upcoming Full Moon on Friday. We’re experiencing a rapid change either inside or around us that either 1) we weren’t expecting or 2) is on a much grander scale than we believed. It’s quick and is shaking us to our very centers. We may have been holding onto that which no longer serves us for quite some time that now there is nowhere to go but to change. Much akin to the tower card, this change is sudden which can leave us feeling uncertain or even anxious. Just have faith and trust Spirit.
We’re being reminded that while this may be uncomfortable as our most firmly held beliefs may be reassessed, we are ready for this. When this is all said and done, when the rubble and dust has settled, we will have come into a higher sense of ourselves, the situation, and life as a whole. As I stated above, honestly, what a beautiful experience. The unknown and change can be scary but it is only through these uncomfortable situations that we are able to rise higher.

This is quite funny because I was just thinking earlier this morning about a post I’d read on Facebook about disconnect and the necessity of union with Spirit/God/Goddess/All That Is. This communion also extends into nature as everything has a spirit. We’re all interconnected so the tree beside my sidewalk is just as much a part of me as I am of it. This makes communication and communion possible.
Take time today to speak to your higher power. Pray, Meditate, Chant–whichever helps you. Our lives become so busy that we tend to only come to Them when we’re in need but have you ever talked to Them? That’s the necessity of the day. If already do this then go out and commune with nature. That is your meaning. Nature is the manifestation of the Gods.
Be one with Them. Talk to Them. Listen. Maybe there is a message needing relaying?
Take a moment to think about the first day of summer. How does that make you feel? What feelings and desires arise? For me, I think of hot days, outside tanning, yardsales, and fairs. We tend to become more active and joyful during these months as we long to spend our time outside, enjoying those longer days.
We tend to radiate more…or maybe that’s just sweat. When you are active and doing things that bring you joy then you send that vibration out into the Universe which means you will receive more joy. You will draw experiences and people to you that hold the same vibration.
So, the message for today is: Get out there and shine like the star that you are. (The sun is a star ) Be active. Enjoy the moment! If you’ve been wanting to try something new, go for it. Mediate on the summer solstice and how its energy is just bursting with life. Take this feelings and invoke it within yourself. Get out there and enjoy life. Spend some time outside, even if just five minutes.

Are you finding yourself feeling confused, discombobulated, or even disconnected? Breathe. Take a deep breath in, hold it for a few seconds, then exhale. Do this a couple of times. I promise you’ll feel better, lighter, and have more clarity in your thinking. Regardless of the situation–of the stress, anger, or seeming hopelessness, remember to breathe.
Love is the highest and purest vibrational frequency there is. In Spirit, there is only love. It is ego which pulls us down and away. Are you loving enough? Are you allowing yourself to love? This doesn’t only need be the intimate love of lovers but also extends to our family, our friends, our community, our country, and to the world as a whole. Do you love your fellow brothers and sisters? The past several months have been plagued with anger, envy, indignation, and much heated debates. While our outrage may be justified, try shifting your thoughts from anger and hate towards those who are in the wrong to simply love for those you are trying to protect. You can still be furious and fight to protect others’ rights but try shifting your focus on love. Your anger stems from the love you have from your fellow brothers and sisters.
Have the holidays been leaving you feeling drained, stuck, or even uninspired? Perhaps even bored? We need to breach those feelings by allowing ourselves to take a break and shake up our surroundings. Don’t just recline in your easy chair but go somewhere new or do something new. A change in environment is just what is in order to breach such feelings.
