8-8 Check Point

Last month’s spin cycle has now finally come to a stop, and many of you are beginning to breathe a sigh of relief. Much of what felt chaotic last month is now beginning to gel, even if its final form is still yet unknown. As you awaken to the energy of the day 8-8, it is an excellent time to check in with your life, your surroundings and all that you are participating in.

As things are now falling into place, you are at the perfect interval to ask if what is being created is exactly as you wish it to be. Are you surrounded by the right people, places, situations and opportunities for you at this time? If you do not feel that you are, use the energy of 8-8 to discover what is no longer in alignment and determine how to change it.

It has been a challenging spin cycle; flinging out emotions, energy, past life memories, fear and everything else from you was no longer needed (even if you didn’t know it yet). For many of you, it has been rough. However, as the energetic laundry machine slows down and its contents are left refreshed and cleansed, now is time to look at what remains inside and re-examine how best to utilize it.

Many times on the path of life there are opportunities to look at everything in a New Light. This doesn’t necessarily mean that anything needs to change, however if you find yourself not feeling positive in certain situations or when dealing with specific people, it is most certainly the time to ask yourself, "Why do I feel this way?"

Most of the time, the answer to this question can be uncovered by understanding your emotions and in examining how those particular situations make you feel. Other times, the answer can be found in the form of a knowing to change or alter something in your life. If the spin cycle did not reorganize your life for you, then take a few days to organize and check in with yourself and your surroundings. If you were like most, and hit hard by this spin cycle, then spend a few days looking around and re-locating the contents of what still remains in your energetic laundry machine.

Learn to release that which you no longer need to hold onto. The best way to move forward in life is to let go of those ideals, beliefs, situations, people, habits, and fears that no longer serve your best and highest good. You will simply know when something is no longer needed, as the Universe has a way of creating opportunities in your life to show you.

Use the remainder of August and September to build up the new and to release the old. Check in with yourself in all aspects of your life. Meditate, relax, re-assess. Check that everything you need was able to make it through the spin cycle, and decide what the next best step in life is for you. You are infinitely powerful and capable of creating all that you need, but if you do not take the time to check in with all that is taking place, it is easy for the grime of self- defeat to build up once again.  

Love, Aurora
