THE HOT DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
I am carefree and a risk-taker; I honor and love my uniqueness.
The 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 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.

The Sun has entered the sign of LEO
The fiery sign of LEO has an inside track on love, power, and the universe. One of the best routes you can take is heart-focused meditation. Anything you can do to enhance the purity of your ideas and creativity will bring you rewards. Developing and using your creative abilities creates an energy flow within you that triggers that same flow to others when they encounter the work you have done. Music, acting, and temporal forms of artistic expression that involve an audience as you create, brings you an especially potent technique. Engaging in sports activities brings joy and enthusiasm and at its best, brings playfulness to both spectators and players. Taking on a leadership role will challenge you to bring forth your best, Leo. Working and playing with children can also trigger spontaneity within for the benefit of everyone involved. Children respond the best when someone is able to touch their minds and hearts to draw them out. Their relative openness, especially when young, will allow you to open your heart as well. No matter what you do, if you realize that by giving to others you give to and improve yourself, you will always be on the right track.

Beaver…teach me to build my dreams
Including others too.
One mind, one thought
The hearts as one,
Lessons learned from you!
Beaver is the doer of the animal kingdom. Beaver medicine is akin to water and earth energy, and incorporates a strong sense of family and home. If you were to look at the dams that block woodland streams, you would find several entrances and exits. In building its home, Beaver always leaves itself many alternate escape routes. This practice is a lesson to all of us not to paint ourselves into corners. If we eliminate our alternatives, we dam up the flow of experiences into our lives. A doer is characterized by industriousness, and Beaver knows that limitation cancels productivity.
Beaver is armed with very sharp teeth that are capable of felling whole trees. Imagine what those teeth could do to the limbs of predators. From the rear, Beaver is armed with a paddle-like tail that aids in swimming as well as in guarding its behind. This tiny mammal is well equipped to protect its creation.
To understand Beaver medicine, you might take a look at the power of working and attaining a sense of achievement. In building a dream, teamwork is necessary. To accomplish a goal with others involves working with the group in mind. Group mind constitutes harmony of the highest order, without individual egos getting in the way. Each partner in the project honors the talents and abilities of others, and knows how to complete the piece of the puzzle that belongs to them. In working well with others, and sense of community is achieved and unity ensues.
August 2022—the Fiery, determined, focused energies – is the time to put your ideas into action or to complete some project that has been neglected. The Beaver could also be asking you to settle differences with fellow workers and friends. Beaver tells you to look for alternative solutions to life’s challenges and to protect the creations which you have put love and energy into.
Sometimes Beaver may bring you a warning to watch your back! If this is your message, you will sense it. This could become a time of laziness and apathy or fear of opening new doors of opportunity. Move forward! Trust and use caution and all will unfold as planned, in a positive and creative way for you.

RUNE of the Month
EIHWAZ— DEFENSE—Aversive Powers—The Yew Tree
As we are tested in life, we find the power to block and defeat. At the same time, we develop in ourselves an aversion to the conduct that brings us into stressful situations.
There appears to be a blockage on the path, but even delays may prove to be beneficial. Do not be overly eager to press forward. This is not a time or situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel that Eihwaz offers us in the month of August. Nothing hectic, no acting needy or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks of the difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new cycle or new life. Often it can announce a time of waiting. It is time for the spring to fill up with water and the fruit to ripen on the vine.
Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is the mark of the profound person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. We are not the doers but the deciders. Once our decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless, for then the Universe supports and empowers our action.
As we receive this Rune – Eihwaz – consider yourself put on notice that through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. This month may well be a trying time, and certainly a meaningful one. Set your house in order, tend to good business, be clear, and wait on the Tao, the will of Heaven.
