FIRE READING - 7.11-7.18
AFFIRMATION: "I AM FREE TO START OVER IN A WAY THAT PLEASES ME"
THIS WEEK: In general, fire burns forth and water flows back. Cancer season can make us all very introspective, nostalgic, or out-of-control-emo. WATER douses FIRE, lame. But the cool thing is, FIRE evaporates water. So for once, we are encouraging you to BURN BABY BURN. But it's more like a controlled burn of a field. The first thing that came through you was, "I smooth the edges by burning the field." This is a little extra, like trying to smooth your split ends by lighting them on fire, but HEY, you can be a little extra. Use your natural inclination to burn the house down to free yourself from the bondage of inertia, nostalgia, or regret. It's always a great time to start afresh, as the moment is literally always renewing itself. It's always another NOW. Oh! Now it's another NOW. So the affirmation is chill: I AM FREE TO START OVER IN A WAY THAT PLEASES ME. Clarify your field so the march forward while holding your heart aloft (see ETHER) is that much easier, with a cleared way. It's ok if you feel like you're going around and around. Just make sure you beat something back, trim it down, or burn it away every time you make another lap. You might realize that you've been getting your energy all along from what you truly care about, and maybe, just maybe you are already marching in perfect sync with your heartbeat... you just might not be able to hear the satisfying syncopation from 20,000 leagues under the Cancer sea.
