There's been a lot of "if you're not acting from the heart, you're acting from your wounds" in the air this past month.
With this month's solar eclipse (Aug. 11) working its magic in Leo, while grounding some major shifts in consciousness from last month's lunar eclipse in Aquarius, many of us have been faced with deep engrained karmic behaviors and wounds coming up to be cleared—as if old versions of ourselves are showing up for a final clearing and final release.
The energy of Leo reminds us of our own inner-confidence and the ability to *shine* and be the best versions of ourselves.
Think of the Lion's ability to stand confident and proud in their playful ability to *roar* their truth and challenge others.
After all the work that has taken place these past few months, many of us are grounding into our true inner power and finding acceptance of ourselves without all the karmic wounds and false childhood programming. This was a cosmic upgrade for all of us!
With all of these shifts happening, I wanted to share the support of a powerful spirit animal that has been with me through this transition. I recently had a Panther spirit guide connect with me through my imagination in multiple imageries and meditation sessions.
I saw him with his arms wrapped around my solar plexus and what felt like the most comforting hug as if he was giving light and energy to all the things I wasn't giving enough love.
He told me his name was Joy, and he was here to be the full potential "joy" I had yet to see, and to hug and to hold me when my shadows were to get the best of me.
This panther guide joined me on my adventure shortly before my ayahuasca ceremony, where I then fully believe he physically showed up in human form through a young woman's effortless ability to hold space for all of my shadows and wounds.
