This June you have the opportunity to see the world of possibilities opening to you. As you learn to become more loving to yourself, you also become more self-contained. This month, you are no longer looking for someone or something outside of you to fulfill you. When you are relaxed and at ease, you can see the limitless possibilities all around you. When you are in tune with your true nature, you trust that the universe is giving you exactly what you need in order to grow.

When you constantly need to analyze things, over time you realize that mind will accept any boundary or limitation as the truth. But existence by its own nature cannot have boundaries.

Your mind will try to tell you to be content. If you listen to that voice, then you will remain small. This smallness is your mind’s imposition upon your freedom, limiting your potential and possibilities. When the mind is in control, you become lazy and life becomes dull. You feel as if you are in a rut, and life becomes a bitter pill to take.

When you experience the feeling that you have “arrived,” remember your mind is imposing a boundary and limit upon your experience. This does not mean that you have not achieved something fabulous that is to be celebrated. But each of us is constantly growing and evolving. Enjoy each success and then reach beyond that known place toward more fulfillment, love, and joy. When you think that you have arrived, know that the mirror of that reality is cracking under your feet, and you are about to take a freefall into something new and unknown.

Don’t worry or despair. This is just the natural progression that is life. There is always something new to explore or some way to expand love in your life in greater expanding circles of connection and honor.

Do not believe those who offer false flattery and seduction. Whether they know it or not, they are keeping you small in order to validate that they do not need to grow further. Others will tell you that what you have should be enough, that you should be satisfied and content. I am not talking about financial satisfaction, but spiritual fulfillment and satisfaction. In this area, trust your own depth and discipline. Amazing levels of spiritual awareness, conscious clarity, and awakening are available to everyone. However, it does take discipline and the willingness to push beyond comfort into the hidden and resistant areas within you.

That is why you must learn to listen to the intuitive self and the deeper soul awareness within. The mind is only one small and very narrow aspect of your being. You are much more than what you believe you are.

Notice if you value doing but do not always value the mystical knowledge that can be found within the intuitive self. That intuitive self is asking for you to listen and open beyond the level of comfort that you have created up to this point.

This month, be reluctant to take huge external risks. Let go of extravagant plans and the constant need to manifest extreme wealth. Allow stillness to invade your life. Go within and find your inner source of power and clarity.

Take some time to dance into the passionate flow that is what makes life worth living. The simple things in life are the memories we end up holding as sacred treasures-you do not remember the expensive holiday gifts you received as a child as much as you cherish the memories of rolling in the grass and playing with your family in hysterical giggles and laughter.

Allow those simple pleasures to expand the childlike innocence back into your life. Allow joy to become the priority. Allow love to be the guiding light and principle in your work and family. Make choices that are not about getting what you want, but noticing and giving to others what will open their heart more fully to the love that is within them. After all, spirit is always present and guiding our lives, even if we do not always realize it.
