July 2008 contains the energy of dynamite as it expands into open space. The energy is like that of a super nova -- a star exploding. There is not a large, singular event in which this energy occurs; instead, the energy will feel like a series of explosions in your personal and collective lives over the course of the month. This expanding energy can create a great deal of clarity. It also can create a great deal of discomfort. The experiences that are likely to occur this month provide further evidence of the fact that limiting structures and beliefs will no longer work in an expanding and enlightening world. Belief systems and institutions that create limitations on individual freedom and expression will continue to be brought to light and dissolved more rapidly than ever during this month.
For some of you, particularly if you are attached to the limiting beliefs or the oppressive institutions that come to light during July, you may feel as though there has been an explosion. You might find yourselves feeling shocked, surprised, disheartened or afraid. But for those of you who have been continually looking for more expansion in your lives already -- for those of you who have been continually noticing oppressive forces and finding ways to work outside of the oppression, to work outside of the limitations imposed by your societies or institutions -- you are likely to find that you feel relieved, like pressure has been let off. In July, many of you may find yourselves thinking, “Finally people are noticing that things are not working!” You may find scandals, public conflicts, political battles, corruption coming to light; all of these things will continue to occur and even increase in July of 2008.
Just as with any experience, you have a choice. You always have a choice between love and fear. Even as your hearts break, even as you feel afraid, you can continue to choose love. Continue to look for the sparkle inside you that remains connected to your own humanity and that cares for the suffering of others. Look inside yourselves for that which wants to open. Yield and hold onto that which is precious in human life. As much as you can, move toward that sense of love for yourselves and love for your fellow human beings. It is your actual sensation of love that will help you navigate the explosive energy of July 2008. In fact, if you can stay with that heart energy, you will actually find a sense of freedom on the other side of the explosive energy -- a sense that after the dust has settled, there is more room for you to be your true self with a more open heart. There is more room for thinking together, for coming up with new solutions; there is a great deal of freedom available amidst this explosive energy.
The best way to work with this is to try your best to stay connected. Stay connected to your feelings and to the people around you. You are likely to see collective events such as war, famine, political arguments and scandals that are hurtful. You will be tempted to close yourselves down, to try not to pay attention, to try not to think about it too much or try to limit your interactions with other people in order to protect yourselves. In the past it may have been useful for light workers to shield their energy from the heavier, denser energies in the world by closing off their attention to the world. It is not longer useful to do so. Because we are in the year 2008, when it is necessary to answer your calling of service to the world, the best way to work with this experience is to open your hearts and to look for a way to connect. Look for a way to engage. If it breaks your heart too much to see people suffering from famine, then turn to the people in your neighborhood and find someone who could use your help there, where it is not overwhelming for you but helps you open your hearts and become the softer, more connected version of yourself.
Let your hearts break open to a more tender connection. Do your best to avoid numbing your emotions or avoiding your emotions during the month of July. This will be a time when you can take whatever you have learned about yourself in therapy or counseling and take it out to the world. Find ways to deal with your emotions as they are happening rather than stuffing them inside. If you are angry, then go for a run or get in your car and yell or paint or write or talk with a friend; find something to help process your anger as it arises. If you are confused, find the courage to talk to someone, find the courage to ask people for the information that you need. If you are sad, let yourself cry. This is a month where any kind of withholding, any kind of pretending is only going to make the explosions feel bigger and more difficult. This is an excellent month to be incredibly genuine and gentle with yourselves and with others.
July 5 through 7 are likely to feel intense. In the United States you will see literal fireworks on July 4. Take the image of those fireworks and assume that the energy is going to feel that way on July 5, 6, and 7. Those three days provide a time when things are likely to come to light and be seen -- when whatever you are intending or whatever you are engaged in is likely to have more energy behind it. It can be a very sparkly, playful energy, but just like with fireworks, there is a lot of heat involved. Be mindful about what you engage with on these days. Do not engage in activities that you did not intend. Be intentional with these days. You may find yourselves feeling accident prone, so it will serve you to plan ahead, know where you will be and when, and do your best to listen to your intuition.
We are not talking about avoiding danger here; we are talking about being sure that you are where you want to be so that your energy is placed where it needs to be. There will be an extra oomph of energy and you want it to be in the right place for you, rather than in a place you did not intend. For instance, if you do not really want to spend time with a certain person, make sure you do not spend time with them on those days because you may experience a conflict or feel overrun by that person. On the other hand, if there is someone you really want to connect with in your life, make sure to spend time with that person on these days because that extra energy can help you find the deeper connection. Be intentional about where and with whom you spend your time on July 5, 6 and 7.
July 14 is a day that will bring a softening. It is a day that acts as an anchor for the rest of the month. It is an excellent day to help reground yourselves, to turn your attention to the things in your life that are stable, steady, and that make sense to you. For some it might mean riding a bike, spending time with your children, working in your garden do something that is grounding -- something that feels normal and regular for you to help you feel like you have a routine.
July 27 is a turning point. During the month, you may feel like there is a merry-go-round swirling around you. During the month, there will be many events to keep track of in your personal lives and in the news. July 27 is the day on which you are likely to land in a steady position and to turn your attention to the places where your energy will likely be spent for the next several months. July 27 is a good day to sit and reflect on where you have been and where you want to go. It is an excellent day for goal setting and it will be an important day for restructuring, for looking back and determining what structures you have had in your life and then look forward and decide what structures will serve you best. Are there routines in your life that do not serve you anymore? Are there routines, disciplines or practices that you want to engage moving forward? Does it really help you to wake up at the same time every day or do you want to wake up earlier or later? Are you getting enough sleep? Do you eat at the times that work best for you? July 27 is an excellent time to renegotiate the structures that weave your life together. Things are going to change beginning on this day. We cannot say in advance what that will look like for you as individuals, but watch for change and know you have the power to make decisions about the nature of change in your lives. The changes that occur on this day or the changes that become evident to you or evident in your collective or in the news or media, are meaningful. They are semi-permanent. Pay attention to them and determine what they mean for you and what actions you want to take moving forward in your life given the events that occur on July 27.
July 30 is a day of softening. It is an important day to reach out and make amends. Apologize to anyone you feel you have wronged. Explain your position to anyone you feel does not understand you. It is a day when you will be able to speak and hear one another better than usual and it is important to remain heart-centered and move toward softening and tenderness on July 30th.
Yes. The trajectory of the United States is particularly important in the year 2008 because this is the year to herald your calling, and the U. S. is working to realign itself with its true calling. The year 2008, for the trajectory of the U. S., provides a radical revolution. The direction in which the U. S. moved at the beginning of the year is likely to be 180 degrees from the direction it will be taking toward the end of the year. One of the reasons that you are likely to see this explosive energy in July is because the month of July is the birth month of the nation of the U. S. The energy is helping to clear the trajectory of the nation, and this is the reason that secrets cannot be swept under the rug -- they cannot be kept out of view as easily as they could have been before. You have seen throughout the world, particularly in the U. S., corruption come to light in the last five years.
As individual humans move through Enlightenment and become empowered, they are less likely to blindly believe the words of their government or blindly accept the direction of oppressive institutions. As the shift of individual Enlightenment occurs, it has made it not only possible but necessary for corruption or secrets to be unveiled and seen. As more and more people see what is true, fewer institutions can withhold their secrets. This is one of the reasons you have seen much corruption or scandalous news come to light in recent years. This leads us to July of 2008. The U. S. has a deep commitment, at a soul level, to come into integrity. Any parts of the U. S. government that have managed to hold secrets have managed to do so by holding them extra hard, which is the reason they have not come to light yet so far in the last five years. The explosive energy in July is due in part to the fact that the things that will come to light are things that have been held extra hard. When they come into visibility, they will come with a pop!
There is a likelihood that this will be a destabilizing force in terms of government and collective endeavors. This is one of the reasons that we encourage you to reach out to one another and stay connected to your fellow humans this month -- because in the U.S. the original calling was to empower individual humans to create a collective experience together. Over time, that power has been corrupted so that the institution is empowered to direct the lives of individuals. The original commitment of the U.S. as a soul is to return its roots -- not roots of independence, but the root of the power of individuals to create a collective experience.
The word “independence” no longer suits an Enlightened world. You are not returning to a sense of independence, you are returning to a knowledge of the power of the individual to enable and support a collective experience. It is actually not a deeper commitment to independence, but a deeper commitment to interdependence and the connections between you. When you are aware of the inherent connections between you and among you as individuals, then you recognize your interdependence. You also recognize the incredible power each one of you has to change the world.
The true nature of the soul path of the U.S. is to embrace the power of the individual. The thing that has changed since the year 1776 is that you now understand the incredible importance of connection and your interdependence on one another. The vital lesson that the U.S. has to add across the globe as you become a global culture is to remember the power of the individual; it is from your individual choices that you create collective reality; it is through the power of the individual to direct their own fate that you decide together the direction of the human race. The piece that the U.S. has been missing is the understanding that wisdom comes through embracing your interconnection, rather than imagining the individual empowerment leads to independence. That is the significance of those events in 1776 and the way they have an opportunity to come full circle in the year 2008.
The global food crisis is one in a series of phenomena that are making it abundantly clear that you are interconnected. It helps you see that when one person makes a choice, that choice actually does affect everyone else in the world; and while those individual choices and their individual outcomes are not easy to connect in a linear form, it is not easy to see exactly how the gallon of gas someone in Texas puts in their tank does lead to lack of food for a child in Malawi, that the connections exists. It has been too overwhelming to the human mind to comprehend all of those connections, the incredible complexity of the interdependence of human beings on Planet Earth and the connectivity between you. But as you move into Enlightenment, you are now able to comprehend it. The first step is comprehension. You are able to comprehend the complexities and therefore, as you become more enabled to comprehend it, you become more accountable for how you act with that information. The second step is accountability. Eventually you become more empowered to make choices that make a positive difference in the world that you can see. You can actually sense how your choices are making a difference and it is an incredible empowerment when you can come to that understanding. The third step is empowerment. For most of the planet, the global food crisis is providing the first step in this process, that of comprehension. You have been building up to this global food crisis collectively through countless choices made by individuals and institutions in the world. You have been heading toward this for hundreds of years. It is happening now. This is the year that the global food crisis is reaching a breaking point; is reaching a point at which it can no longer be ignored.
This is the year in which the human mind, as a collective entity is capable of comprehending how individual choices have led to this and how individual choices can lead you back out. Whether humanity comes to that comprehension and reaches the next stage of accountability is yet to be seen, but this is what you have been gearing up for. The food crisis is just the beginning. You will see a water crisis, you have already seen a fuel crisis. You will see more water shortages and you will see a shortage of aid when it is needed most. In the moments when natural disasters or war occur, you will see, there is always a shortage of aid, but you will see further development of what you saw in hurricane Katrina or the cyclone in Myanmar. You will find that there is an extreme shortage of emergency services. As you see these crises, the question then becomes -- What will you do for the person next to you? Rather than waiting for an institution to direct you, what will you as an individual do for the people around you who are suffering? It will become necessary for each of you to choose to act out of your own empowerment, rather than to wait for an institution to direct you. It is time to answer your calling to service.
The most likely outcome is that as you see your connections and you take accountability for what you can do with your life, then as a collective you eventually become empowered to care for one another -- to steward one another in a way that defies institutional control. This is where in religions you find the phrase to “do unto others as you would have done unto you” or the direction to “bear one another’s burdens.” These are not just religious idioms; they hold the keys to Enlightenment and your survival as a human race. It is not just an idea and it is not something that your institutions will do for you. It is something that you as individuals will choose to do, and that is the only thing that will resolve the food crisis. You are most likely, in July, to simply see further evidence of the food crisis, the water crisis and the crisis of emergency aid, and you will continue to see individuals answer the call to service.
This is a perfect way to ask the question because the number 7 is magic. The word magic, we are going to use a particular definition of the word here, which is we are using it as a way to convey the fact that what exists energetically will create what exists physically. And, the inverse, that what exists physically does shift the energy surrounding it. This is the magic that makes your words so powerful. It makes your actions so powerful; it makes your intentions so powerful. When you hope for something, hope actually takes shape as an energy and that energy leads to actions, events and even eventually can lead to material change in the world. The power of the number 7 in July is very evident. Actually, if we were to give a number to this month, not only is it number 7 in order for the western calendar, 7 speaks to the power of the clarity that will be available for you.
The power of 7 tells you that nothing can be overlooked. If you are intending that someone be hurt but you are pretending to help them, that intention of hurtfulness will be evident. It will limit the way they receive the help you offer. If you are intending to help heal someone, even if you cannot decide what to do for them, that intention in the form of prayer is conveyed. It does make a difference; it does transmit and make the person more healable than they were without your prayer or your intention. The way to use the power of 7 is, first of all, do not pretend. Do not fake anything, and do not believe it when the people around you do. July is not a time for pretense. It is not a time to pull the wool over your own eyes or over the eyes of anyone else.
The second way to use the power of 7 is to engage in a practice such as prayer or sending positive, loving energy into the world from your heart using the truth of magic, which is that what you intend energetically, what you think about, actually does transmit and have an affect in the world and in your life. Number 7 is the number that directs the power of positive thinking, or mind over matter; and those ideas are more true than ever in July of 2008.
Yes. Do not be afraid. As long as you have a commitment to being honest, taking accountability for your life, keeping your heart open and choosing love over fear, this month does not need to be terribly uncomfortable. Yes you will find that your hearts break. Your hearts will break, you will feel sadness, anger and surprise; but all these things are meant to lead you to a deeper understanding of Love. They are meant to lead you to a deeper sense of connection with the people around you. This is the perfect month to remember and embrace all the ways that you have been hurt in your life and cradle them tenderly in your heart. Then go into the world, look at the people around you, and assume that they, too, have their pain; assume that they, too, have cried alone, and that they have felt as alone as you have in your life. Allow this perspective to direct your actions toward them. Offer them tenderness; there is literally no room for harsh judgments of yourself or others in July 2008. During July of 2008, there is enough pain, there is enough brightness glaring at people already. People do not need your opinion; they need your loving attention. This is a month for tenderness, this is a month for sweetness. Do not be afraid. Choose Love.
Yes! Though there is not really any change in direction or fundamental shift in the energy, there is more specific information available now that the energy of the month is approaching. The energy of July 2008 continues to be an explosive, expansive energy – like a bright light flashing. The shift that has occurred in the weeks since the Looking Ahead channeling is there is more Light available in July 2008 than there would have been several weeks ago. This is completely a result of the thoughts and actions of human beings. You have made room for more Light to be available. When we say Light, we are talking about Divine Light -- that vibration or energy of Love that formulates everything in the Universe. We are also referring to the effects of that Light, which is when that Light is present, all of creation becomes visible. In other words, more information is available to you when you allow more Light to be present in your lives.
Through your actions, particularly through your embracing of compassion, you have opened a space for more Divine Light in your hearts. Also, this Divine Light is even more available due to your continued willingness to see what is. Your willingness to take into account all the information that you know -- your willingness to step out of denial in your personal lives, in your collective endeavors and to embrace the truth even though the truth can sometimes be difficult or hurtful, bring more Light into the world. So many of you, during the month of June, have bravely stepped into the truth in your lives, that you have opened up more potential for Light during the month of July. The energy remains as it was in the previously channeled message, but there is more Light available. This means that you have more resources available. You have more of that higher vibration to support you through the month of July.
The increased availability of Light also means that you are likely to see even more than you would have before in the month of July. Deception, lies, miscommunications, anything that was previously unseen or unknown to you becomes very obvious during the month of July 2008. This is not exactly a comfortable thing to have happen, but it is very useful and is only happening out of a response to all of your willingness to move into this visibility. There is a bit of irony here; with more of that vibrational resource and with more information at your fingertips, you all are likely to step forward even more than you originally planned. That means that you have essentially opened up space for the month of July to be even more explosive than was previously channeled. But this is not a punishment; it is a gift you have created for yourselves to propel you forward on your unique, divine paths.
Take note that this increase of explosive energy and expansion is occurring as a result of the greater resources you have available. It is not that you now need to scramble for energy and courage to deal with this -- you already have it. You are simply going to get bigger than you expected. Look for new information in your lives, be willing to see what really is rather than what you really hope to be. Be willing to grapple with any new information with your hearts as open as possible, remembering that you are completely supported from the other worlds and that you are completely supported in the human world.
All of our advice regarding July in the Looking Ahead channeling remains true. The best way to work with the energy of the month is to reach out and get connected to the people in your life. That includes people that you have not met yet, but pass you by on the street or who stand in line with you at the store. Be willing to reach out and connect with your fellow human beings. That is the one thing that will be most beneficial for you to do as you move into this new rapid expansion. Otherwise, the original message is perfectly accurate.
Yes. This is likely to mean that on an everyday basis in your personal lives, you will feel that you consistently have new revelations. You will find yourselves on certain days, in certain moments, suddenly seeing a situation with a whole new perspective. It is as though you will have a profound insight that makes everything clear to you all at once, but then this will occur on an ongoing basis. It is like an explosion of clarity in your minds – an “Aha!” moment. Then as soon as you see the new insights and integrate the new information, another one happens.
You may find through the month of July that you feel you cannot catch up with yourself, and that is okay. In August, the expansion will become more integrated, so let the clarity come during July. This may mean that you will miss some deadlines or you will feel pressed to get things done in time. It will feel like things are happening too fast around you. It may feel as if you were surrounded by bombs going off. Imagine that a big explosion occurs on one side, and as soon as you turn to deal with it, a second explosion occurs on the other side. You are likely to feel that everywhere you turn you find new information and new insights that are so profound that they genuinely change your perspective. You will have these kinds of jaw dropping moments, not of fear or of tragedy, but just the shock of insight like you will just be momentarily stunned throughout the month by new perspectives or new information. You may get news that surprises you. Depending on your life and your trajectory, it may be very positive, joyful news or it might be very distressing, disappointing news. Either way you are likely to have your jaws drop, so to speak.
Collectively, you are likely to see a more explosive version of events that are occurring already in your world. Scandals will seem more scandalous, corruption will be more devious, world events will take on a new sense of drama or a deeper, more permanent sense of meaning. During July, many people are likely to suddenly realize that all of the things that they suspected may be true, are actually true. For instance, the global food crisis is an example. People are aware that there are food shortages throughout the world and many people have been aware that mismanagement of resources occurs throughout the world. For years and years people could have anticipated a food shortage such as this, but now that it is actually happening, it seems surprising even if some part of you is aware that mismanagement would eventually lead to shortages.
During the month of July you will find that the information surrounding global events such as the global food shortage, natural disasters or political decisions, will cause you to pause with momentary shock. Your jaw will just drop, you will catch your breath, find yourself surprised and you will need to reevaluate everything that you assumed before. This is something that is not new; you have been doing this already, particularly in the last several months. It is just that the energy in July makes it feel bigger and more shocking. Do your best to remain calm. The fundamental direction that humanity has taken is not changing in July. You are changing individually -- your perspective is opening, you are seeing more and it is your work to adjust with an open heart and a willingness to see things as they are rather than as you wish them to be. You do not need to panic and suddenly be in fear that the whole world will fall apart at your feet. Parts of the world are unraveling and new parts of the world are building into a new, more enlightened foundation. Do your best not to panic in July. Do your best to take in the information and respond to it as well as you can knowing that more will keep coming and all you need to do is keep up with it. Do your best and trust that in August and September you will have the time you need to digest it all.
This explosive energy draws a closer connection between your intentions and the manifestations of your intentions into outcomes. Your intentions, prayers, hopes, wishes and thoughts always create a resonance in the world, they always have an outcome though you usually cannot see it very clearly. In July, the outcome gets closer to what you intended, and the outcome happens more readily. There is less distance -- a metaphorical distance because we are not talking about space here. There is nothing new you need to do, but it will help you to know that your intentions and your prayers have a greater effect, they have a more explosive or expanded effect in the world during July than they typically do. All the complex ripples between you and your intentions and what happens in the outer world have more clarity, like they move through a clearer radio signal through which to travel.
Because your intentions will lead more easily to manifestation, it is important to be very aware of what you intend in your personal lives because what you intend, fear or spend most of your time thinking about is likely to come into being in one way or another. This is why we continually give you the direction to choose Love over fear. Fear will arise, especially when things start to feel out of control and when things start moving really fast for you. Fear will arise and you can allow it to arise, but then make a choice about where to place your attention; you have the power to choose Love, even when you are experiencing the emotion of fear. You do not need to fight the fear; you do not need to ignore it. In fact if you ignore it, it becomes stronger. Instead, allow it to arise but then choose your behaviors to be based in Love. Choose your words based in Love. Choose words that heal people rather than words that hurt people. This includes words you use in regard to yourself. There is nothing new with this information – you have heard these things before -- but do know that you will have a greater effect in doing this.
Yes – this is an excellent way to describe how your intentions connect to the outer world; it is like the faucet got turned on wider or faster. The energy itself of July, itself, does not quite suit the image of a faucet. A faucet is too consistent. The explosive energy of July occurs more in fits and starts. That is why we say it is explosive rather than just big. It occurs like a series of explosions or a series of expansions rather than one long-term, consistent flow.
This is an astrological energy -- an energy that is channeled to the world through an astrological alignment that occurs every year. It is not a traditional astrological alignment because it is not an alignment of planets. It is an alignment based where the earth is positioned it its revolution around the sun and what stellar energies you are exposed to through your position during this period. There is something like a Goddess energy. In the year 2008, that energy is part of what will make the expansion of July become more consistent in the month of August. In the month of August you will continue to have expansion, but it will become more consistent rather than explosive as a result of the Goddess positioning. Goddess energy and God energy is always available, but you have different configurations of it moving through the planet at different times based on astrological alignments. This particular alignment brings more consistency in August, but will not be a huge central factor of what is happening in July and August this year, but it does make a shift. It does make things softer in August.
Yes. Several weeks in advance of the month, the potential was quite strong for physical explosions of weather, bombing devices, rising tempers, all of these kinds of things. Now that we are closer to the month’s beginning, the explosive energy remains likely to happen physically through weather and human behavior, but with the tempering sense of Light coming from your compassion and your willingness to embrace the truth. It is less likely you will translate the energy of July into physically tangible explosions. It will still happen throughout the world, but it is not as strongly translated into physical matter. You will continue to see storms. In July you will begin to see the nature of the hurricane season because there is an intense hurricane season that will begin to arise in July. That is not to say there will be a massive hurricane in July, it is yet to be seen what kind of hurricane season it is. It is simply that there is a great deal of energetic potential rising in the season. You will continue to see attention-grabbing kinds of weather, but the potential is less than before based on the collective human embracing of the Light.
Yes, absolutely, though there is a little more specific information about this for you because it is very important; it is the most important direction to take out of these channelings for July. It will depend on who you are and how you have configured your life. For some of you, the most you can manage to do is to reach out to strangers in those simple little ways. Not for most of you; for some of you. For others of you, it will mean reconnecting with old friends or spending more time with the people in your life so that you have a deeper connection rather than a transitory or momentary “hello.” For many of you during the month of July, the real, true direction for you is to not only connect with people but actually reach out for help. Whether that is help thinking through a problem you are having at work or whether it is calling a friend in the middle of the night when you cannot stop crying and actually asking them to come over and hold you. Each of you has your own threshold for ability to ask for help and your ability to risk or connect. Follow what makes sense in your lives, but extend yourselves further than usual in asking for and offering help.
Essentially anything you do that supports isolation in your life is going to make things a little more difficult in July. Anything you do to reach out and be in community or in a relationship is going to make this month really joyful and clear. This month has the potential to push you forward in the directions you want to go in your lives, and this potential is maximized in your willingness to engage more deeply in relationships of all kinds. It will depend on you, how your life is choreographed and what your thresholds are around these things. It would be important to do something out of the ordinary. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with being alone; it is fine to be alone. We are talking about isolation, which is different. Being alone is just part of existing. Sometimes you are alone and it is healthy, but when you could be with other people or when you are struggling with something and you do not tell anyone, then you are supporting your own isolation. This is the time to banish isolation and embrace interconnectedness. Each of you has entered a time and space in with true, human, heart-to-heart connection is more possible and more necessary than ever before. It rests with you to make these connections happen in your individual lives. Reach out, soften your hearts, smile and trust that you fellow humans are doing their best and they are on your side!
