The Surf has been rising steadily for months now. In July, the current became almost impossibly strong, unhinging us from our old moorings, propelling us into New Directions. Now, in the very exciting month of August, new swirling motions has been added to the Surf, making us feel like we are inside a giant whirlpool. Most whirlpools spin around and pull us down. The swirling whirlpools of August are spiraling us around and around, spiraling both inside us and outside us, pushing us into our new levels of being.
It's easy to see ourselves as small boats which have broken loose from our old anchorages and been pulled out to sea by an extremely strong current. Now a mighty storm is brewing, tossing us this way and that, moving us into unexpected directions. We are surrounded by torrents of rain and crashing thunder and bolts of flashing lightning. The Winds of Change are howling, drowning out all other sounds. There is so much to do: tying down the sails in the billowing wind, bailing the boat which is being pelted with sheets of water, just trying not to capsize or fall overboard as our boat gyrates wildly in the surging seas.
In the tumult of change all around us, in the pressing urgency of each moment, we have released our comfortable, established routines. Did we eat anything today? Did we remember to get the mail? Did we remember to pay our bills? Did we send a birthday card to our mother? WHERE are we going? None of that matters anymore. There is something far more urgent which we are dealing with. CHANGE. MASSIVE CHANGE. Change so huge that it supersedes everything. The Winds of Change howl and blow.... Our little boat is pushed deeper out to sea....
Occasionally, we get a glimpse of something blowing away from our boat--- something not tied down, or maybe it was and now it's just time for it to be released. So in spite of our efforts at securing it, off it goes in a blur, absolutely gone from our lives. Forever. We might perhaps be sad at our seeming loss, but we no longer have the luxury of reflection. The Winds of Change are blowing more ferociously with each passing moment and we have too much to deal with.
We are in the midst of tremendous intensity, yet there is also a sense of exhilaration and excitement that we feel. We don't have a clue where we are going or how the details will play themselves out, but underlying everything is a deep knowing that it's going to be all right. IT'S GOING TO BE BETTER THAN All RIGHT; IT'S GOING TO BE PERFECT. We are being propelled into the lives that we really want. And this raging storm of Change is getting us there.
We are dealing with many seemingly diverse elements in August:
powerful current pushing us along.
No way to escape it, so we might as well allow it to propel us into the Unknown. It's one of the strongest currents we've ever felt, but it's getting us to where we need to be.
whirling whirlpool energies all around us which make it difficult to focus on
specifics or concentrate or plan anything out in our usual fashion.
These spiraling energies make it utterly impossible to carry on with our old patterns and force us to do things in new ways. We don't have the time and space to think things out; instead we find ourselves in the midst of a flurry of activities with too much to do, doing what we can and letting go of the rest.
forceful shucking off of the old elements of our lives which can't be taken
into the New with us.
Most of the time this feels like being caught in a tornado; in the midst of all our activity, we can only observe the blur of change around us. Oops, there goes our roof; there goes our car; there go our old friends; there goes our jobs; there goes our old lives. Whatever no longer belongs to our New Directions is being pulled away from us. This is both tremendously exciting and a bit shocking. If there wasn't so much going on, perhaps, we could stop and think about it.
clicking into place of new locations or residences.
Many of us are moving from July to October. When we find a new place, it will be absolutely perfect for us. These new residences will recalibrate us so we can move into our new levels of creativity. And for those of us who are being relocated, we must move into our new locations before the next phase of our New Lives can begin. If you feel a move coming, know that it will happen surprisingly easily.
the old world is gone:
It no longer exists. What appears as the old world is like a hologram; it sort of looks real, but it isn't. Don't buy into this false world for it is laden with distortions. Instead, we can step into the Greater Reality.
If at first you
don't succeed, try, try again!
One of the rather strange elements we are currently experiencing has to do with our interactions with the so-called "normal" world, many parts of which seem to become increasingly more pinched and distorted each day. It's easy to become frustrated with some of these interactions and to give up whatever we are trying to achieve. Our success depends entirely on the person with whom we are interacting. If they inhabit the pinched, unreal world which used to be considered normal, if they accept the distortions as real, then we will have little success working with them and their rather robotic responses.
Whenever this happens, try to step away from the interaction, wait 15 minutes and make another attempt. This time you may get a real person. If you do, you will find a successful outcome. These "false starts" are simply rerouting opportunities.
Don't worry about
We really don't have the time right now to work out the details; we simply have to go with the flow. Everything will work itself out and is going to be all right. We need to know and embrace this. Change is good. It is propelling us to where we need to be.
Our beings are
being moved to deeper levels of the Greater Reality.
We need to raise ourselves to this new level before we can fully enter our New Lives. Remember, we are being liberated from the past and are gaining our Personal Freedom!
2002 is a truly amazing and magnificent year. It's the year we have been waiting for. It's the flowering of our tears, the reward for all the arduous work we have done on ourselves and for all the challenges we have faced.
Once we get in our new locations or reach the new level in our beings, then we will start experiencing the influx of new people and new situations into our lives.
By the last week of August, the storm will begin to calm down. We will finally be able to see just how far we have traveled and how much we have changed. At last, we can have a clear look about us and see where we have landed and who we have become. And we will like what we see!

HELPFUL ACTIVITIES FOR AUGUST:
Stay Positive by Remembering What Is Really Going On:
We don't need to fear change. Yes, it is powerful and often beyond our control. Look at change as exciting and as a renewal. When our old foundations crumble, it is time to build new ones.
Watch out for Occasional Sinkholes:
Sinkholes are places where the ground suddenly collapses under our feet. Without warning, we find ourselves in a deep trough. When this happens, it's easy to get discouraged and depressed. However, this condition is only temporary. Be like water and keep your love flowing. Soon, the hole will fill up and you will be released to continue on.
Find Effective Ways to Deal with Stress:
When things get intense around us, it's easy to lose it and become stressed out. Right NOW, start gathering together some ways to transmute stress. Try hot baths, exercise, meditation, yoga, walks, dancing, spending the day in bed. Whatever it takes. Just be aware when your stress levels are rising and take action.
Don't Buy Into Duality:
There are no "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys". There are no "Good Countries" & "Bad Countries". There are no "Good Religions" & "Bad Religions". There is only the One!
Continually Look Beyond Outer Appearances:
Nothing is as it appears to be. Step out of any residue of fear or anger and take a good, clear look at what is really happening. Don't take anyone's word on what is happening. Don't blindly follow authority figures. Figure it out for yourself from a place of vastness and all-encompassing Love.
Strengthen Your Compassion:
There is simply not enough compassion on the Earth at this time. Many of us are feeling assaulted by the energies of anger and fear. It's a challenging time with duality running amok. This is exactly when compassion is most needed. Consciously become an embodiment of compassion. Be like the Sun which has no personal favorites and extend your compassion to all beings equally.
Rerouting Opportunities Abound:
Whenever there are blockages or things don't happen quite as you would like them to, simply understand that things are being rerouted to bring them into alignment with the state of RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE.
When New Doorways Open, Leap!:
There is no time to sit and ponder whether we should take these new opportunities which are being presented to us. If it feels right, do it. Leap! And then leap again!
Don't Try To Hold On To The Ones Going Out Of Our Lives:
Many people and situations are going to be leaving our lives. The resonance is shifting dramatically, making this is a natural occurrence. Let go gracefully and wish them well.
Emptiness is Good:
If you feel empty, embrace that feeling. It's a good thing and something that all of us experience when huge chunks of our old ways of being and doing things leaves our lives. This is a pregnant emptiness, a sacred place where we await the birth of the New.
Spend time each day in your vastness, showering the Earth and all its inhabitants with Love.
Inhabit our One Being at all times:
As we consciously live in our One Being, we also nourish and strengthen the resonance of Oneness throughout the world.
