Confidence and enthusiastic optimism come from within.
LIFE THAT MAKES ALL THINGS NEW
As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life force, which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony, which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.
If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in, you will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, “God is very good to me.” You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.
This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days – and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase in you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.
Think of Ammachi, and meditate on the yellow golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, as is Amma, always! The petals of this divine rose are slowly opening as you chant your mantras to Amma, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a light within the heart as well music coming to you from the rose. The light from above and the light from the rose blend as one…as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
JULY brings vacation tome and a plan for new beginnings. It’s time for your prosperity to begin. Based on the Rune (The Self) and Animal (Turtle) chosen as the vibration – July, 2013 brings a laid back, slow mode, but speeds up by mid-month. Many momentous decisions will have to be made, bringing you to a new plateau and by early September you’ll be well on the way to a brand new life style.
The Sun has entered CANCER
Cancer, the first water sign, is the phase for personality integration and building an inspired home base in the world. Take the fiery independence of Aries, the fierce dedication of Taurus, the effervescent thinking of Gemini and weave them into a firm foundation for individual fulfillment. Represented by the armored Crab and the agile Cat, this sign reminds you to be shrewd and tenacious and to keep clawing your way to success. Old memories, a sense of history and family heritage provide a solid background for you to face the future with confidence. As you dispel the clouds of moodiness and emotional vulnerability, trust your feelings and your decision-making process and watch your psychic sensitivity grow in the process. A maternal, nurturing manner can be a comforting gift to relatives and colleagues over the Independence Holiday weekend.

ANIMAL—THE TURTLE – THE GREAT MOTHER
Turtle…the Great Mother
Free my Spirit,
Clothe my heart,
Feed my Soul,
That I may serve you!
In Shaman teachings, Turtle is the oldest symbol for the planet Earth. It is the personification of goddess energy, and the Eternal Mother from which our lives evolve. We are born of the womb of Earth, and into her soil our bodies will return. In honoring the Earth, we are asked by Turtle to be mindful of the cycle of give and take, to give back to our Mother what she has so generously given to us.
Turtle has a shell which is similar to the protection that Earth has employed for centuries as her body has been defiled. Mother Earth’s protection has come in the form of Earth changes, new plant growth, and the creation of new land masses by volcanoes and climate alterations. Like Turtle, you also have shells that protect you from hurt, envy, jealousy, and the unconsciousness of others. Turtle teaches you, by its habit patterns, how to use protection. If you are bothered by the actions and words of others, it is time to go inside yourself and honor your feelings. If you are attacked, it is time to give a warning snap!
July has chosen the symbol of Turtle for its expression. You are being asked to honor the creative source within you, to be grounded to the Earth, and to observe your life situation with motherly compassion. Use the water and earth energies, which represent Turtle’s two homes, to flow harmoniously with your situation and to place your feet firmly on the ground in a power stance.
Turtle is a fine teacher in the art of grounding. You may even be able to overcome some of your “space cadet” tendencies if you align with the Turtle. In learning to ground, you are placing focus on your thoughts and actions and slowing to a pace that assures completion.
Turtle warns you of the dangers of “pushing the river”, as evidenced by the plodding place it keeps. The corn that is harvested before its time is not yet full. However, if given a chance to develop at its own rate, in its own season, its sweetness will be shared by all.
Turtle buries its thoughts, like its eggs, in the sand, and allows the Sun to hatch the little ones. This teaches you to develop your ideas before bringing them out into the light. Look at the oldest fable of the tortoise and the hare, and decide if you would like to align yourself with the Turtle. Bigger, stronger and faster are not always the best ways to get to a goal. When you arrive, you may be asked where you have been and you may not be able to remember. In that case, arriving prematurely can make you feel very immature.
July 2013—has been chosen as the month for the Turtle – which augurs a time of connecting with the power of the Earth—the Mother-Goddess within. It does not matter what situation you have created in your life. This is a reminder of the ally you have with the Mother Earth, and as Amma come across the United States on her tour, ask Her for assistance in 2013, and abundance will follow.

RUNE of the Month – MANNAZ
The Essence and Starting Point in Life
Mannaz represents the starting point which is the Self. Its essence is water, the sign of Cancer. Only clarity and the willingness to change is effective now. A correct relationship with yourself is primary, for from this flows all possible correct relationships with others and with the Divine.
Remain modest – that is the Oracle’s counsel. Regardless of how great may be your merit, be yielding and devoted, moderate and correct, for then you have a true direction for your way of life. Be in the world but not a part of it. That is implicit here, however do not be closed, or narrow, or judging. Remain receptive to impulses flowing from the Divine within and without. Here you might contemplate the words from Hamlet: “To thine own self be true.” These words also may be contemplated, “strive to live the ordinary life in a non-ordinary way.” Remember at all times what is coming to be and passing away, and focus on that which abides. Nothing less is called for from within you now. July will be a time of major growth and rectification, and as a rule, rectification must come before progress.
This is not a time for trying to gain credit for accomplishments, but rather to seek to fulfill the time span, content to do your tasks for the task’s sake which is the meaning of eminent activity. This will be more of a problem for those whose eyes are always on the goal than for those who have not forgotten how to play and can more easily and readily lose themselves in doing the work for its own sake. Herein lies the secret of experiencing a True presence.
If you take Mannaz, the Rune of Self, and cut it down the middle you have the Rune for Joy with its mirror image. There is a subtle caution here against carelessness. The dancing acrobatic energy of balancing is called for in December 2006. The Self is required to balance within the Self. Nothing in excess was the second phrase written over the temple in Delphi. The first phrase was know thyself. With these works the order of the Runes begin.
Above all – this month of July – do not give yourself airs. The momentum of past habits is the challenge here. In the life of Spirit you are always at the beginning.
This has always been the section for Healing Requests. Through the power of group prayers, healing take place spontaneously.

When you place your request in the Healing Circle of Light—located in our Prayer Room; know that as soon as you make your Prayer request and Healing request, you will begin to see positive results!
(We have had thousands of responses. Keep the Prayers going for all concerned!)
