Deep inside, you know what is right. It’s your ego and mind that justify and attempt to weave a story to make your heart wrong. Hearts are never wrong. Ego/mind is often wrong when it’s being channeled through fear and the intent to manipulate and deceive.

This month you are being asked  to attend to your own healing first. Pay attention to what you need. Be present with the tasks at hand. If you feel ungrounded, then know that you aren’t stable in your core. It’s time to balance your thoughts with your external actions. Only then will your heavy heart lighten. Your energy centers require an adjustment and a new balancing. Be open to the gifts that are attempting to come into your life.

The cage in which you have found yourself finally has an open door. Possibilities expand exponentially when you take the risk and step into the unknown. Let discontent propel you into another sky and another world. The very nature of existence cannot have any boundaries. It is a creative, limitless garden of infinite potential.

Do you really have enough ecstasy? Do you have enough silence? Do you have enough joy? Choosing smallness is your mind’s imposition upon your freedom and your unlimited potential.

Those in power say we can’t do this, and we can’t do that. If they can convince you to accept your lot in life, and your smallness, guess who wins? They do! They get to take that extra money and everything else for themselves. That is not how this world is supposed to operate.

The universe is infinite. All things can be accomplished. It is only the limitations of the mind that tells us otherwise. Greatness comes when you refuse to accept the social standard and limits. Stop feeling ashamed for wanting what will work for all. Commit to finding a doorway through this delusion and into a place of play and laughter.

You can operate from inside the dungeon of your fear or you can allow the innocence in your heart to guide you along an uncharted path toward a new way to connect and contribute to the whole.

Lamat is the starseed energy that shows you how to generate harmony through a multitude of beneficial combinations. When you connect to that part of your limitless self, you remember that self-doubt is a lie, disconnection is a choice, and love is eternal. When you choose to cultivate the harmony and the patterns of how we are all connected to everything in this dimension and beyond, then you have access to energies not of this world that can transcend the obvious and manifest from the subtle.

Where have you over-identified with a particular role you’ve been playing? Or perhaps that role has been playing you. Look at how your self-judgment and critical nature stop you from offering your talents to this world. And what a shame and a waste, because right now, everyone’s talents are so desperately needed.

There are elements of truth in all teachings. But remember: There are just as many truths when you step on your own path.

Where you are in harmony is where you are solid in your foundations of self, which allows your soul to co-exist with this body. Expand that harmony. Now you will feel safe and confident and you will find the path you’ve been seeking.

You are an actor with many masks in the closet. When you open into the transparent nature of being, you may “know” nothing. You will finally simply be.
