Despite the world feeling on guard or shut down, August has the potential to be a pretty sweet month. Though the outer world continues to feel constricted, this month something loosens within. There is a relaxing of the heart that seems like an assurance from the Universe that all is well.
Don’t fight it. Don’t look for things to struggle with. Listen to that inner voice that’s whispering…Relax. You’re okay. Everything’s okay. Even in dire circumstances, if you listen you will hear it. Relax. You’re okay. Everything’s okay.
And if you can’t hear that comforting voice, say a prayer. Take a walk. Eat something healthy. Call a friend. Get on your knees and converse with God or Spirit or Life – whatever speaks to you. You are not alone. We are not alone. We are walking a path laid before us. Call it destiny. Call it karma. Whatever you name it, we are a part of something much greater than ourselves and, in that, you can take comfort.
I posted a sign on my wall. It says: I surrender. I’m letting myself be happy. I’m not sure where I heard it, but it is a constant reminder that only I am stopping myself from experiencing happiness. And when I feel into happy, it feels like letting go. Just letting go. When I let go, I feel happy.
When I did my forecast for 2020, August looked like swimming pools and lounge chairs. Now that we’re here, if you’re lucky, that may be the case. But even if you’re not poolside, August feels very much like swimming pools and lounge chairs on the inside. An internal vacation. Feet up, umbrella overhead, sipping a cool drink.
This month, happiness is withing your grasp. Let go. Let life. Be happy.
PS: I know not everyone is experiencing this crisis equally. If you’re struggling, I hope you’ll drop me a note so I can keep you in my thoughts. You are not alone.
