I have noticed that as I plow forward to get things done in my normal Sagittarian way, my body has rebelled. My back keeps going out and I have been forced to slow down and reflect….hmmmm….
My “Aha” has been the lack of connection I have had with my body elemental. Many years ago I learned of this being from The Seven Sacred Flames and have been working with it for a long time with great results. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this term, we all have a “body elemental” which animates and controls the mechanism of the physical body. This being is here simply to keep your body in perfect heath and harmony.
It is important that you acknowledge your body elemental daily, sending it love and gratitude and asking it to assist in the healing of your body. Its job is to hold the vision of divine perfection in your body.
Say this prayer daily:
Beloved Flame of Healing
Bless my form and make me whole.
I accept a Healing Miracle today
Blaze forth your healing Light of the Seven Rays
Everywhere it is needed.
Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM
Remember that we are entering into an Eclipse season. As my friend and Astrologer Rebecca Gordon says, “Leave tons of empty slots on your calendar in August because you will need it. Space and time to process will be essential so that you can release what is no longer essential and also seize new opportunity.”
Work With Me:
I will be traveling for most of August. Contact my office for my schedule. For those of you on the West Coast who want to work with me in person, I will be in the LA area around August 18th to the 28th. I have limited appointments available. Consultations are in person, via Skype or phone.
I was deeply moved by the movie Maudie that I saw last night. Sally Hawkins plays the Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis who yearns to create art. Each bird, each flower, each leaf is unique and special to her and she is in a constant state of delight at the majesty of nature. I won’t ruin the story for you…yes it is also a wonderful love story with Ethan Hawke, but it is enough to say she was an inspiration to many others and me.
It has gotten me thinking of how often we compare ourselves to others and constantly reference other things and places that we have been in the past. How many times have you heard someone look at a beautiful scene in nature, an ancient cathedral or building in another city or country and say, “oh this is just like…” By doing this we devalue the experiences that we are having in the present.
Let us use this time to experience life instead of comparing it to anything else. Just be. Allow your innate creativity to shine forth. You are a creator. You are special. You are unique and you are here to share it with others.
Here is a special meditation I recorded for you to open to your unique gifts and talents. Please share it with friends and your community.

As many of you know, since my Mom’s passing, I am in the process of clearing out our home in Florida.
It is bringing up both happy and sad emotions. I believe that every thought and interaction we have is imprinted on our consciousness and remains in our physical space.
Throughout our lives, we establish spiritual cord connections between our self and other people, places or things. These cords are created whenever we think about someone or something, speak about them, or take some action that involves them.
In Hawaiian shamanism they are called Aka Cords. The more time you spend with someone the stronger the “Aka” cords may be.
My house in Florida is filled with memories. It is a challenge not to read every birthday card, look at every photo (we have thousands dating back to when my grandparents were young) or hold on to every plate, cup or candlestick. In fact, I found myself sitting with a felt scissor case I made my mother at 4H camp when I was 8 years old. Yes, she kept it in her sewing box!
I am so grateful that my brother Mark, my friend Liz and others in my community have jumped in to help. It makes a big difference having support at this time when I can vacillate from feeling totally fragile and sad to being focused and clear as a bell.
Letting go is a process; sometimes easy and sometimes hard. The key is to know that we are making new memories every moment and that Spirit will always fill an empty space.
