Newsletter — CANCER 2022
My goal is financial security.
THE ONENESS I CALL GOD
Whose presence I have recognized,
Whose pleasure or displeasure I have sought,
Has been seeing His life through my eyes.
He hears through my ears,
His breath comes through my breathing,
His intuition I have felt,
Therefore I know!
I know that this body
Which I had thought to be my own,
Is really a Temple to God.
I did not realize this before.
I did not know that this body
Was a Shrine to God.
Not knowing that God experiences life
Through Man —
One is always seeking God
In some person or energy
Apart and aloof from this World.
But all the time,
God is within oneself!
—Elizabeth Joyce 2.21.92
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
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.
July’s key aspects bring the time for you to enjoy your life and express your inner child. These two months, July and August traditionally are associated with happy times such as vacations, weddings, graduations, and reunions. You can expect exciting things to occur in the areas in your life highlighted by transiting Mars. Be careful as August opens because this fire energy is strong, focused, and warlike. When this planet is in a Fire Sign (Aries), you often feel the urge to take the initiative to move forward and get things done in that area of your birth chart.

Swan — The power of woman
Entering sacred space
Touching the future—Yet to come
Bringing to all eternal Grace.
Little Swan flew through the Dreamtime, the veil of light, looking for the future. She rested a moment in the coolness of the pond, looking for a way to find the entry point to the future, the Stargate. This was a moment of confusion for the Swan, as she knew she had happened into Dreamtime by accident. This was her first meditation flight alone and she was a bit concerned about the Dreamtime landscape.
As Swan looked high above Sacred Mountain, she saw the biggest swirling black hole she had ever seen. Dragonfly came flying by, and Swan stopped him to ask about the black hole. Dragonfly said, “Swan, that is the doorway to the other planes of our imagination. I have been a guardian of the illusion for many moons. If you want to enter there, you will have to ask permission of the higher forces and earn the right to do so.”
Swan was not so sure she wanted to enter the black hole. She asked Dragonfly what was necessary to earn the entry. “You must be willing to accept whatever the future holds as it is presented in your life, without trying to change the Great Spirit plan.” Swan looked at her ugly duckling body and then answered, “I will be happy to abide by the Great Spirit plan. I will not fight the currents of the black hole. I will surrender to the flow of the spiral and what I am shown.”
Dragonfly was very happy with her answer and began to spin the magic to break through the illusion of the pond. Suddenly Swan was engulfed in the whirlpool in the center of the pond.
Swan reappeared many days later, but now she was graceful, white and had a long neck. Dragonfly was stunned! “Swan what happened to you?” he exclaimed.
Swan smiled and said, “Dragonfly, I learned to surrender my body to the power of the Great Spirit and was taken to where the future lives. I saw many wonders high on the Sacred Mountain and because of my faith and my acceptance, I have been changed. I have learned to accept the State of Grace.” Dragonfly was very happy for Swan.
Swan told Dragonfly many wonders beyond the veil of illusion. Through her healing and her acceptance of the State of Grace she was given permission to enter the Dreamtime. So it is that we learn to surrender into the grace and rhythm of the universe and we are able to slip out of our physical bodies into Dreamtime. Swan medicine teaches us to be one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in the Great Spirit’s protection.
July of 2022 ushers in a time of altered states of consciousness and the development of your intuitive abilities. Swan medicine people have the ability to see the future, to surrender to the power of Great Spirit, and to accept healing along with transformation of their lives.
The month of July 2022 is telling you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead. If you are resisting your self-transformation, relax! It will be easier when you go with the flow. Stop denying to yourself that you know who it is when the phone rings. Pay attention to your inner hunches as well as your gut feeling reactions, and honor the female intuitive side of yourself.

RUNE OF THE MONTH
JULY — SOWELU
WHOLENESS, LIFE FORCES, THE SUN’S ENERGY
Sowelu is the symbol of Wholeness, that which our nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realization and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the essence of your individuality.
Seeking after wholeness is the heart of the Warrior’s quest. Yet, what you are striving to become in actuality is what you already are in essence. It is your personal myth. That which your soul carries to make conscious and bring into form in a creative way. The Sun symbolizes the path and illuminates the goal, which is the human heart.
A Rune of great power, making life force available to you, Sowelu marks a time for recharging and regeneration, right down to the cellular level. You may actually experience power surges, for the energy involved can be drastic. Although this rune has no reverse position, there is a reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you “spend” your energy now. Know that such a retreat is a retreat in strength, and that it can mark a voyage inward for centering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.
At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels to open yourself up. Let the Light come into some part of your life that has been held secret and shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognitions, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied. There is a prayer that Ammachi teaches called the Gayatri Prayer, that embodies the spirit of this Rune. Salute the Sun in this fashion.
You, who are the source of all power,
Whose rays illuminate the whole world,
Illuminate my heart,
So that I, too, can do your work.
While reciting the Gayatri Prayer, visualize the Sun’s rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, and then streaming out of your heart center in turn. This is an extremely powerful and life-enhancing prayer.
Again, there is caution not to give yourself airs. Yet, even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is your true function. Aim yourself truly and maintain your aim without manipulation.
Practice the art of not forcing. Aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ’s words, I can of mine own self do nothing. For in our own power, we do nothing, even in loving, it is the Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate realization of your personal myth, and the goal of the Superior Warrior.
This has always been the section for Healing Requests. Through the power of group prayers, healing take place spontaneously. You can be of help to many others, as well as your loved ones, with one minute of silence at 7:30 pm EST every Sunday evening anywhere in the world. With a prayer for the recovery of health, universal energy is sent out to any and all who send in their prayer request. What is needed is the name and birth date of the ill person, along with a diagnosis, if possible. What are you asking to be lifted? 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!)
