Fiery July of 2017
Welcome to the hot and fiery month of July. The days may now be getting shorter, but that doesn't mean smoother sometimes. In this year of new beginnings, this is the month of fiery new ideas, being in charge, manifesting prosperity in an action sort of way. This is also a time of speaking before thinking, charging on without contemplation about the consequences, pushing ahead without pause.
I don't know if I am the only one feeling that, but it seemed like a switch turned on with the start of July, producing a feeling of agitation and frustration for no apparent NEW reason. I was not in a good mood and I seemed to find that same behavior everywhere I looked. As that began to make sense, and I was able to notice my attitude, I first just made sure I went to sleep early. I slowed my thoughts with the breath. I began to read little snippets of encouraging words from books I have on the shelves or from websites I keep around for such times. Mostly, I tried to suspend responding and reacting until the temptation to attack subsided. And always keep a reminder of gratitude tucked away and at easy reach for quick reference. Manifesting the thought of what we do want in life has a calming effect.... Its already getting a little easier....
If this sounds about right, here are some examples of summer selection of books that might be helpful for you during this fiery month of July:
