On this day of August 8th, often called the Lion's Gate, because the numbers of the day are 8:8, there is supposed to be a special energy that permeates the day and allows for creativity and change.
I don't think it matters whether you believe in this or not. I think you can choose to see this day as one of change or transformation. But then, I sincerely believe that all days can be that, if we invite that change and transformation into our lives.
One of the easiest ways to do this is by formulating an affirmation that is relevant to our circumstance, and then repeating it over and over again, until it becomes our reality.
Mostly, the affirmations should benefit us on a personal level, but they can also have an impact on a global level as well. When we change. The world changes too. You have have heard the adage, "Change your mind, and change your life." I would also add this: "Change your life and you change the world."
Here is a wonderful affirmation for all of to embody:
"I am Pure Love."
Close your eyes and think of what your life would be like, and the impact you would have if you truly believed that you are pure love. Then imagine the world this would be if everyone believed it as well. There would be peace, and harmony, acceptance, cooperation, and creative solutions would flow from all those things.
Repeat this affirmation over and over again in your meditation or quiet moments. Repetition will make it your mantra.
You ARE Pure Love!
Yes! I believe it. YOU are pure Love. And so am I. It's just that many of us have just not recognized it.
Go out and shine that Love and Light that you are at your essence!
