August brings strength, confidence and change

Life by the Numbers headerBY MICHELLE ARBEAU

As July comes to a close, you make your decent down the spiritual mountain and approach the river of synchronicity ahead. July has been a mixed bag of treats with a good amount of soulful self-reflection interspersed with some outer action. August is a whole other ballgame with a self-confidence vibe, abundant opportunities and marks the start of the highest change period of the year. Here’s where the year gets interesting as August, September and October are fast-paced and urging you to go for it.

SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014
Today starts the energetic climb into August as the last days of July round out. There’s a spotlight on career this Sunday as the stirrings of the confident, abundance and independent 8th month energy has got you restless with anticipation. There’s a feeling in the air that big things are coming and with today’s number being a five, the number of freedom of expression, you’re alive with potential. I left my corporate job 12 years ago to jump head first into my life purpose and passion. Dream bigger than you’ve every dreamed before, only you can limit yourself and what you can achieve. You’re poised to enter the “no fail” eighth month this week so it’s important to firmly set your vision on precisely what you want. The confident August eight has no patience or respect for wishy washy.

MONDAY, JULY 28, 2014
You felt the stirrings of the magnitude of potential within you yesterday and now you’re about to crank it up a notch as the last days of July pave the way to guaranteed greener pastures ahead. This Monday is the creative visionary six. What you started dreaming up on Sunday will become crystal clear today as you see the grander scope of things to solidify the next leg of the journey before you. The flip side is that you may get snagged up in relationship drama today. It’s OK though because it’s meant to be. August is often a time to let go of relationships or connections that were done, but were dragging on out of a hesitancy to change. In order to prepare yourself for that, there may be some final trouble bubbles come to the surface to be popped so you can decide where you really stand.

TUESDAY, JULY 29, 2014
The build is getting intense as each day this week speeds us up and gets ups going even more. It’s an exciting week and the anticipation is also breathtaking. If you’ve felt like you’re spinning your wheels, you’re certainly not going to feel that way as the momentum builds in this final week. Think of August as the main event and July has been your grueling training work. All that you’ve put effort into as well as blood, sweat and tears is coming to a head in a positive way, if you allow it (that’s the key, the path of least resistence). Now, you get to reap the rewards.

This could actually prove to be quite a hindsight learning day though as we’re in the belly of the beast — double whammy seven energy (July is seventh month and it is a seven day). It may be an upside down, mixed up day where nothing seems to go right, but, as always with the seven’s experiences, it’s a blessing in disguise. You have a lot of hard and fast decisions to make in the upcoming month of abundance and you can’t be sitting on the fence about anything. Suck it up buttercup and deal with the big, bad truth. Don’t take offense if others call you out on your BS this Tuesday.

Here it is. Your feet are on the threshold of the official gateway to the best month you’ve experienced all year. The eight, nine and one form the peak of the energetic cycles of one to nine, so you’ve now entered the point of no return as Wednesday is the eight.

You may have moments of second thoughts today as you wonder whether you’ve prepared enough. Don’t doubt your ability to make things happen. If it’s meant to be, it will be. As overwhelmed as you may feel right now, at the same time, it’s most exhilarating to have the wide open road in front of you. For much of 2014, there have been some form of restraint placed on you and now you have been set free. Potential and opportunity are everywhere today. Pay attention everywhere you go, who you meet and what you see, hear and feel. Great things often come in unexpected packages.

Drum roll, please! Today is not just the last day of July, it’s also the highest change energy you can be under (nine). 2014 is a pivotal year of both inner and outer change on a personal/global level. You have turned the page hard and are more than ready to start the new chapter — you just didn’t really know how you’d do that exactly, until now. Even if you’re normally a mellow fellow, today’s vibe will certainly have you bordering on ADHD levels. You’ve got ants in your pants and your confidence is soaring. Lights, camera, action!

The curtain opens and there you stand, ready to show the world what you’re made of. Like never before in history, the masses aren’t just seeking a job or career, they’re stepping into their path and purpose. There’s important work to be done in the world given the many levels and states of crisis or dysfunction the human race is in.

It’s no coincidence that you’d step out into the spotlight to embrace your calling under the eighth month as it naturally doesn’t leave much room for relationships. If you are alive now and haven’t yet hit your stride, chances are you are one of the guides meant to lead humanity in some way on a global scale. Pretty deep stuff but it’s exactly what’s happening now. Many are being called to their post, have a tugging on their sleeve that says you’re meant to be doing something bigger, broader, more global.

Often when someone is stepping into their calling (not just a job change), there is no room for relationships to drag them down unless that person is the one their truly meant to be with. This fits too with friendships. Those who are really meant to be by your side for the journey won’t feel like baggage in any way. If you could pick a day out of the whole year that would mark the first day of the rest of your life, this would be the day. The 16-seven energy is all about the big reveal or the moment we’ve all been waiting for. You won’t be the same after today is done.

As if we didn’t have enough over the top high change energy, we round out the week on a double eight (August is eighth month, day energy is eight). Make a wish today, a big fat and juicy wish because it’s like someone gave you a genie lamp. The Chinese consider eight to be a financially lucky number and for good reason. It’s the number of manifestation and abundance, but the trick is, you have to not doubt that you’re deserving of all that good stuff in order for it to flow to you. That’s the key to entering the flow of synchronicity where everything comes readily and easily to you. Thankfully, no matter how doubtful a person you tend to be, the double eight energy of Saturday will have you feeling confident that you deserve a big fat piece of abundance cake. That’s precisely the tone you want to set as you enter the month when miracles happen and dreams come true. It’s actually the God Frequency number today (17-eight) and we are God-like creators, the micro to the macro. The takeaway for the week: You can have or create anything you desire — seriously!

    I really enjoy these posts and I look forward to reading them. However, using ADHD to describe the vibe on Thursday is an inappropriate use of words. ADHD is not a verb. It is a serious, misunderstood mental illness that many suffer from. As you do understand the ‘energy of words’, maybe in the future you could choose better words to describe what’s happening, instead of perpetuating an overgeneralized stereotype. Thanks.
