Visioning for July 2019

Well, how was the month of June for you? Were there any significant themes or breakthroughs? Do you have a sense of what you would like to do and feel and experience in July? Is there anything you would like to change or update?

If you have been following this blog, then you already know that I recently began a practice of reviewing my journal and calendar at the end of each month, and then visioning some keywords for the new month. My primary keyword for June was Renewal, and I think I accomplished that goal. I do feel renewed and ready for a new good chapter ahead. Yes! The positivity bells are ringing! Can you hear them?

A couple of nights ago I saw a very bright star shining in the sky, and I spontaneously made a 3-part wish, and that wish has evolved into my keywords for July: to be Calm, Helpful, and Happy…

Calm ~ One of my dearest spiritual teachers, David La Chapelle (who left the earthly realm in July 2009), frequently assigned practices to help calm me down, and when he met my Mom he told her, “Your daughter is a live wire.” One of the consistent threads throughout my entire life has been an abundance of excitement energies, and since I have a highly sensitive nervous system, I tend to get over-stimulated easily, which often makes it challenging to get peaceful sleep. July is a high energy, fiery month where I live, so my intention is to focus more on calming down my system.

Helpful ~ It is my deepest prayer that these blog articles will be helpful to people… And I will continue being helpful through visiting hospice patients… And soon I will be publishing my new book, which I hope will be helpful to many people! (Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life)

Happy ~ In July this happy keyword for me is about attracting money. They say, “Money can’t buy happiness” which is true… But money can buy soap, toothpaste, and chapstick! This month my intention is to continue feeling the happy gratitude vibration for all that I have, AND to open to receiving more happy green energies (money)… so that I can buy some essentials, and so that I can launch the new book! (If you can contribute to my work, I will appreciate every penny so much: Donate)

As you reflect on your own month of June ending, and your month of July beginning, what arises for you? Do you notice any interesting thoughts, feelings, or sensations? What brings you satisfaction? What do you most deeply want? What can you do this month to work towards your goals? What can you do right now, today, to relieve any angst or discomfort?

Simply reflecting on such questions can really help you to shift into a higher, more open state of mind and heart.

Please share your July keywords in the comments section below.
I truly hope this post was helpful to you.

Happy July!
May All Beings Be Happy!

End of the Month Journal Review

Do you write in a journal, and/or keep track of things in a calendar? If so, you might like to try this simple practice that I have recently added in my life.

At the end of each month, sit down with your journal and/or calendar, and review what happened during that month. Take mental or written notes, while reflecting upon any themes, goals, insights, and achievements.

After reviewing the month that is ending, take a little time to look at the next month and do some visioning about what you intend to do, feel, and experience in the coming month. Tuning in to your deepest wishes, set 3-5 keywords for the month.

For example, for the month of March, I set these keywords: Acceptance, Forgiveness, Peace, & Grace, and for the month of April: Abundance, Wealth, & Health. Each month I felt that setting those keywords really brought those goals into a clearer focus, which then helped to actualize them in my reality.

I hope you enjoy reviewing the month of April. Please let me know how it goes!

May All Beings Be Happy!

Happy Up Your Life With Creative Visualization

Shakti Gawain’s bestselling book Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life* celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2018, and then the author passed away in November (2018). I highly recommend this book. It is beautifully written and packed with simple tools you can begin using right away, such as visualizations, affirmations, meditations, and other creative techniques to help you achieve your goals on any level — mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual.

I especially loved the exercise called “Ideal Scene” in which I thoroughly enjoyed writing out my vision of working on the movie set with James Cameron as he turns my book into a film that elevates many beings! (You can read more about my book here: The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes.)

One thing about working towards our goals is that we have to find a balance between accepting what we have now and simultaneously working towards what we want in the future. I really appreciated Shakti’s advice on that. She wrote, “Take the attitude that you are accepting and handling whatever already exists in your life, and at the same time taking every moment as a new opportunity to begin creating exactly what you desire and will make you happiest.”

Are you happy now in your life? Are you doing what you love to do? In this wonderful book, Shakti says that when we are in alignment with our higher purpose, our contribution “may involve many things, or it may be something very simple…. It always involves being yourself totally, completely, and naturally, and doing something or many things that you genuinely love to do, and that you have a natural gift for.”

I loved this book and I will read it again and again. There is also a companion workbook that I have on the shelf but haven’t worked through yet. I’m looking forward to doing so at the right time. It is called The Creative Visualization Workbook: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life*, by Shakti Gawain.

I hope you will also benefit greatly from reading Creative Visualization*. May it help you to Happy Up your life!

May All Beings Be Happy!
