Hiding in the Shadows: Embracing Your Shadow Self

Hiding in the Shadows: Embracing Your Shadow Self

Everyone has parts of themselves that we like to keep hidden in the shadows.  We fear it, but it’s something we should be embraced.  However, these “negative” pieces of ourselves that we try to push away make up our shadow self. Unlike Peter Pan’s shadow, our shadow isn’t something we can separate from.

What is the Shadow Self?

Carl Jung, a famous Swiss psychiatrist, created the concept of the “shadow” as a way to describe the parts of ourselves that we deem as “negative”, and therefore, try to repress and reject. We often reject these traits because they don’t align with the projection of our authentic
selves. After all, if you’re projecting, you’re not really being authentic, are you?

What if I don’t have a Shadow Self?

There are those who do not think they have a shadow. For some people, it’s easy to think that you are a perfectly lovable individual who has no qualities they are trying to reject. Here, we see these individuals have distanced themselves so far from the undesirable qualities that they have become blind to them.

Just as your physical body must have a shadow, so does your emotional and spiritual self. As we go through life we are constantly given “rules” to live by, creating a mold for a “model citizen”, given to us by parents, teachers, and society. If we don’t fit into these “rules”, we develop
a fear of ourselves and try to change who we are to fit the mold. The longer we go denying who we are, the more it negatively impacts our mental health and general wellbeing.

Can’t I just ignore my Shadow Self?

While you technically can ignore your shadow, it’s always going to be there. By ignoring it, we continue to dive deeper into the rejection of ourselves and this can lead to mental illness, chronic illness, low self-esteem, and so much more.

When we ignore our Shadow Self, we give in to our limiting beliefs which stunt our potential. We also end up giving power to “negative” emotions by seeing these parts of ourselves as something we should ignore. If you try to ignore your Shadow Self, you are reaffirming that these parts of
you are “weak” or “wrong”, but that is not the case!

How can I embrace my Shadow Self?

Through a series of self-reflection activities (a.k.a. Shadow Work) you can learn how to see, and yes, even care for your Shadow Self. The first step to embracing your shadow is by getting curious! Think about your triggers, what situations make you feel uncomfortable? Perhaps there is a
person who you find annoying and irritating. What about that person brings up those emotions? Is it possible you have some of those same traits? As you’re doing this work, try to see patterns. Are there any reoccurring themes?

Mindful meditation & journaling are great for releasing judgment of your Shadow Self and for understanding this side of you. Talk therapy, Sound Baths, Reiki, and various alternative therapies can be beneficial when doing Shadow Work.

Shadow Work isn’t easy! As you’re going through these practices, make sure you’re keeping up with your self-care routine and try using positive affirmations like “I accept all parts of myself” and “I release my insecurities”.

The Takeaway

Your Shadow Self may be hiding in the dark, afraid to be seen, but you have the power to change that. The more we connect with our Shadow Self, we work towards personal development and healing. Empower yourself by embracing your true authentic self, including your shadow!

8 Most Common Cognitive Distortions & How To Overcome Them

8 Most Common Cognitive Distortions & How To Overcome Them

There are 8 most common cognitive distortions that are incredibly common. Most people don’t even know when they’re experiencing them! Odds are, when you’re experiencing a negative thought, cognitive distortions are the culprit! So, what are cognitive distortions?

Cognitive distortions are irrational thought patterns or belief systems that usually distort, or “twist”, our perception of reality in an unfavourable way. These thoughts are automatic and run in our subconscious, thus making it difficult to identify them. They impact our mental and emotional wellbeing. When left unchecked, these negative habitual thinking patterns can lead to anxiety, depression, and unnecessary stress.

Are you ready to understand your cognitive distortions? Continue reading to learn about the most common ones to help you overcome them.

Negative Filtering 

“I know everyone said I did a great job with the presentation, but I know I made a mistake and could have done better.”

Someone experiencing negative filtering, or mental filtering, will magnify all negative details and ignore or minimize the positive details. This individual may dismiss a positive experience as a “fluke” or “luck”. Where there is dark, there must be light! On the other end of the filtering spectrum there are those who manage to see the good in everything, and everyone. While CBT techniques won’t make you a “positive thinker”
overnight, it will help you challenge those negative thoughts and try to replace them with positive ones. Try challenging negative filtering by starting a gratitude journal, or reflecting on something positive that you may have overlooked. Take time to recognize even the smallest of victories!

Black or White Thinking

“If I don’t get this promotion, I must be bad at my job.”

Black or white thinking is when we experience an “all or nothing” mindset, there is no grey area. Although this kind of thinking can make you feel certain of some things, which has its benefits, it can also blind you to other possibilities. Once you know something is certain, you filter out other options.

Try to reframe your thoughts in a way that allows for other possibilities. Avoid using words like “always”, “never”, and “every”. Instead, start using words like “sometimes”, or “every once and a while”. You don’t need to have all the answers either! It’s ok to say that you need more time to reflect on things.

“Should/Should Not”

“I shouldn’t be lazy and watching TV, I should be cleaning the house.”

With the “should/should not” mentality, your brain is giving you a set of unrealistic “rules” that should not be broken. When a “rule” is broken, the individual gets down on themselves and resorts to an extreme, not unlike black or white thinking. These statements can also take form of “ought to” and “must”, telling us that we need to follow these “rules” in order to be perfect.

Challenge “should/should not” thinking by asking why you think you should (or should not) do something. Try to get to the root of the “rule” your brain is giving you, and try to reframe that concept into something more


“My date didn’t go well, so I must be unlovable.”

Labeling (also referred to as global labeling and mislabeling) is when an individual generalizes one or more qualities into a negative judgement about themselves or others. Due to this, they view themselves or others though the lens of the label and then filter out any other information that may conflict with that idea. For example, if you think something like “I failed my test, therefore I am a failure”, this is an example of the labeling distortion.

If you can relate to this cognitive distortion, try to journal and meditate on why you rely on these labels. Do these labels bring a benefit? Likely, they do more harm than good. Try to separate the actions from the
person, and do so with compassion. Just because someone did not do well on a test, they are not a failure. There are more to people than labels, try to see other qualities that they have.


“It’s their fault that we didn’t do well on the group project.”

When the blaming distortion takes over, you tend to focus on the other person as the source of your negative feelings and refuse to take responsibility. Alternatively, you may blame yourself for every problem you
encounter- even things that are outside of your control. These thoughts might sound like “It’s my fault you were late to work.” or “She is the reason we failed the presentation.”.

We need to realize that although we may not be able to control what others do, we can control how we react. Practicing meditation helps you be more in the moment. This helps us accept the things that are out of our
control that we can no longer change. We understand that although we cannot change the outcome, we can change how we feel and react.


“What if I call in sick and get fired?”

Catastrophizing is the worst case, “disaster”, mentality. Here, the individual always jumps to disaster, magnifying the outcome based off of a series of “what-ifs”. In this mindset, fear takes control and your brain tells you these horrible stories of “what-ifs” that scare you, causing anxiety and panic attacks. This is connected to our “fight, flight, or freeze” mentality.

Meditation is a great tool for overcoming this cognitive distortion. When we can calm our mind and slow down the never-ending thoughts about of worst-case scenarios, we can reduce stress and make more informed
decisions. One of the best ways to battle catastrophizing is to follow these thoughts. It may be scary, but I guarantee you, the worst-case might not be as bad as you think!

Mind Reading/Fortune Teller

“I don’t think I did well during the interview, I am not going to get that job.”

The mind reader and fortune teller are a lot alike, they both jump to conclusions, not unlike when we catastrophize. Where the mind reader assumes they know what people think, the fortune teller predicts the future by assuming what lies ahead on their path. Both make these assumptions about themselves or others without taking the time to rationally look at the situation.

Think you’re playing the role of the mind reader or fortune teller? Take this opportunity to find evidence that supports and evidence that counters your assumptions. It’s likely that there isn’t enough substantial
evidence to back up your assumptions. It is easy to assume the worst, for both predicting the future as well as assuming how others view us. Fortunately, there often isn’t enough substantial evidence to back up our assumptions.


“My friend cancelled on me last minute, they must not like me.”

Overgeneralization occurs when a person comes to a general conclusion based on a single incident, or a single piece of evidence. Regardless of how many times there has been a positive outcome,
the individual always focuses in on the one negative outcome and assumes they can expect that negative outcome to happen over and over again.

This cognitive distortion can become difficult to challenge and can lead people to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. To avoid this outcome, we need to retrain our brains to focus on the times things went right. For every time something goes wrong, think about other times it went right! Mindful meditation and journaling to prompts like “When have things gone right in the past?” and “What evidence counters this thought” are a great place to start when battling overgeneralization.

Emotional Reasoning

“I feel depressed, therefore I am unlovable”

Those who experience emotional reasoning tend to believe that just because they feel a certain way, that it must be true. Emotions are very powerful and can overrule our rational thoughts
and reasoning at times. With emotional reasoning, an individuals emotions take over their thinking entirely, disregarding all reasoning and logic.

If you’re experiencing this cognitive distortion, try to challenge it by stepping back from the situation and looking at it from a new perspective. If your friend was experiencing this same feeling and thoughts about the situation, how would you guide them? Allow your logical brain to step up and provide some clarity to what is happening.

Hopefully, you have gained a greater understanding of yourself and the cognitive distortions you experience. These sneaky and false thoughts can have lasting negative impacts if left unchecked. Use these tools to become empowered and put an end to cognitive distortions controlling your life.

Is This Normal:  The Fears Lightworkers Face Part 2

Is This Normal: The Fears Lightworkers Face Part 2

In Part 2 of this series, we will look at some more challenges that are commonplace amongstour community lightworkers, and holisticpreneurs and how to remedy them!

In recapping Part 1, we discussed some of the challenges that myself and my close friends in the industry have experienced.  If you haven’t read it, you may want to reference to the “Is This Normal:  The Fears Lightworkers Face” article, where we discussed the following challenges faced by lightworkers:

  • I want to quit this work!
  • I don’t feel like I belong!
  • Did I upset my Spirit Team?
  • When will I become all knowing?

So, let’s dive right in and review more around the financial, social and emotional challenges and fears that we face!

I want to do this for a living, but I fear I won’t be supported financially!

So, just an “F.Y.I.” the exact same words, and or thoughts have been uttered by every holisticpreneur who came before you. We have all had to step into the challenge of trusting our spirit team to support us when it comes to earning enough money, or supporting our finances. It is a big ask to walk away from a career with benefits, jump blindly into a new career that is not a guaranteed hourly wage, or benefit package, not to mention walking away from a very nice retirement package. And yet, so many of us have done this based on our inner knowing and blind trust. It is a calling. And therefore, we do not feel we even have a choice in the matter. If your job is becoming so daunting that just walking into work makes you feel physically ill. Chances are you are being asked to take that same leap of faith the rest of us had to do and that you should just begin to trust that your spirit team has your back.

I have a lot of friends but none of them know each other and those who do, don’t really get along!

If this sounds familiar, chances are high that it has been a source of stress for you, that you can know and love these very different but same “energetically speaking” people, and yet they don’t ever seem to come together, or in some cases even get along with each other. If the feeling of “can’t we all just get along” crosses your mind often, trust me, I get it. This is another common challenge we have. This is for a reason though. Each person we connect with brings so much wisdom to our knowledge vault, that they have to be different from each other. Their backgrounds, their social status will all vary and for a very important reason. That reason is you and your life’s lessons. You are supposed to be on a knowledge-based trajectory in this lifetime. You won’t get that if you hang out with one cohesive group or posse. You are the odd man out for the very reason of gaining wisdom in this lifetime. Embrace the awareness each soul brings to the table for you. And release the scattered “Why can’t we all just get along? Vibe!” 

I have these unexplained pains or illness’s that the doctors can’t explain!

Believe it or not this is a very common challenge amongst lightworkers. It can be anything from phantom pains where you are energetically picking up on someone else’s illness or suffering. If your body is just constantly in pain, and the doctors cannot explain why, no matter what test they perform there is just no explanation for it. You may have been told at a young age that you had a stomach ulcer, only for that to have eventually corrected itself. Some common illnesses for lightworkers are, heart palpitations, fibromyalgia, thyroid issues, stomach pains, anything to do with your adrenals, inflammation and finally headaches and migraines just to name but a few.

As you can see, we cover a wide variety here, but if the doctor can’t pinpoint what the cause is, you may want to examine your grounding techniques and up the amount of time you’re doing this. Also meditation and journaling are great remedies for many of these symptoms, and finally drink, more water: staying hydrated is big problem for us. Think of it like every time we tune in energetically, we are conducting heat and heat evaporates water, if our body is 60% water and we are constantly conducting energy, we need to stay hydrated. And avoid sugar, we are mostly all addicted to this sweet substance whether it is chocolate or pop, it only exasperates our conditions.

Why do people always seem to take advantage of my kind nature?

As a lightworker, it is not unusual for us to feel compelled to support everyone around us. It is as if we think they will not survive the night if we don’t step in to save them from themselves. This urge to be “everyone’s everything” is very common amongst us. It is actually one of the biggest lessons we learn. And that lesson is to be your own lifeline before being someone else’s, and of course, that “free will” clause that every human comes with. That pesky little challenge that no matter what advice or direction you offer and know is best for that soul, that they have their own free will, and will follow whatever destiny their soul needs to follow, in order for them to learn what they need to in this lifetime. So, it can feel draining when people constantly seek you out for advice, only to ignore the wisdom you give them time and again, furthering to cause them more challenges in their lives. Don’t take it personally; it is their journey, it’s best to just share the advice and move on.

The moral of this article is to know that you are not unusual, and that these things that are happening to you, are actually happening for you! Stay grounded beauties, I plan to share a part #3 & #4 in this series with you soon!

10 Signs You May Be Psychic

10 Signs You May Be Psychic

There are 10 sure tell signs that you may be Psychic.  These signs will help answer the many questions that you have about what you’re sensing.  As for myself, I have been Psychic for as long as I can remember and knew no other way of life. When I wanted to understand something, I would listen, watch, feel, even taste, or smell the happenings around me, and just like that something clicked- I got the insight I was looking for. It really was that easy for me to find insight, manifest, and attract things into my experience. It was not until I was about 10 years old that I recognized the term ‘Psychic’ as a description of what I was capable of, and from then on it was all about learning more about my abilities, and helping others understand their own.

I’m sure you’ve run into moments in your life when you were able to connect to someone’s energy like when you know who is calling you before you even answer the phone, or you and your best friend had a “no way!” moment, because it’s like you could read each other’s minds, and let’s be real- those are some exhilarating experiences! After experiencing repetitive phenomenal incidents, it is fair to be wondering, “Am I Psychic?”

What is a Psychic?

A Psychic is someone who uses energy and vibrations that surround them, as well as their own natural, or learned, intuition to tune into the past, present, and future. By doing so, a Psychic will then be able to convey any messages or insight that can provide clarity or guidance to people who are pondering a variety of life questions. Psychics are prominently known for their ability to have futuristic visions.

It is important to recognize that just because you may not fit perfectly into that one of the categories below, does not mean you do not have the ability or that you are not Psychic!

Here are 10 signs that you may be Psychic:

You have strong intuition!

As a Psychic you will have overwhelming ‘gut feelings,’ sudden thoughts or a knowing, see something unfold in your mind’s eye, gravitate, or turn away from certain experiences, places, or people, all because your intuition is so strong that you will just sense when you are receiving energy. Intuition comes on instantaneously, without explanation, Psychics will profoundly trust their intuition and make choices that align to their insights, even when it makes no logical sense to others. Life just became a lot easier, right?

You attract strangers!

Psychic people are very in tune to people around them. You could be out in public and feel so much about someone’s energy that you connected to, without even knowing them! Most times, you find strangers gravitating towards you unknowingly, mainly because they are drawn to your beautiful energy. Yes, you do have a sign over your head that says, “please come tell me your deepest secrets”!

You are the go-to friend and give the best advice!

You may notice that all your friends, family members, and even your neighbours, will come to you for advice. You naturally receive insight that make you the go-to for the best advice and often want to work in industries that support this ability such as a Healer, Leader, Teacher, or other human support role. Ever wonder whom your go-to will be? Me too! Do not worry, you will always have insightful people cross your path to be there for you when you need it most, just keep your eyes wide open!

You are an Empath!

People who are Psychic are extremely sensitive to others’ emotions and tend to avoid any negativity to live in a state of peace. It is quite possible you can feel someone else’s pain or joy. Now that is an epic concept! The difficulty with living as an Empath is that you may feel constantly exhausted, physically, and emotionally. Sometimes when an Empath is in overdrive, they will experience difficulty sleeping, concentrating, develop headaches and many physical symptoms, due to the ability of being able to pick up emotions surrounding you. This causes the need to recharge and mentally disconnect. Empaths must make it a mindful effort to manage energy to maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. Yes, that is right, it is time for that spa day!

You know when people are not being honest!

You are like a human lie-detector and can sense when someone is exaggerating or flat out telling you something that is not true. Psychics do not easily trust people for this reason. Once you show a Psychic that you are not authentic, they will not trust you. Psychics can the feel energy of words, actions, and intentions and this makes them keep a small group of friends or family members whom they can trust. Sorry, not sorry!

You may often avoid physical affection or touch!

We all love to feel human touch or physical affection at some point in our lives, and the same is true for Psychics however, Psychics will often pull away or avoid this affectionate behaviour because the exchange of energy can be too overstimulating. This is not because we do not like to be close to others, rather it is an effort to protect our energy and limit the amount of psychic communication or impressions we process. Psychics often like to be alone, or need quiet time to recharge, but do not worry once you are rejuvenated you are ready to socialize!

You have vivid dreams!

Have you ever felt like the dream you experienced was so real that it woke you out of a much needed, and well-deserved, slumber? Turns out, that ‘real’ dream may come true. Dreams are one of the many ways Psychics receive and interpret information. It is a pretty cool concept that you can gather spiritual insight, and that it can actually help you lead your life. through the subconscious mind! Psychics often have a tough time getting consistent and quality sleep due to the increase in energy around them while they sleep either from their psychic dreams, or increased awareness of a spiritual presence. Sounds creepy right? Not really, Psychics kind of get used to it and often desire the connection.

You have a deep connection to nature!

So, you love to be outdoors! You cannot wait until the moment you clock out for the day to get out of that office and into the world’s largest playground. I bet you have always found nature to be the cure-all to every emotion you have ever had, and better yet, you end up feeling happier, calmer, healthier and even more grounded! Add a pet and a plant or two to your surroundings and you have the recipe for a Psychic’s ‘perfect day.’ Having feelings of connection to animals, plants, and even the earth, is all natural for a Psychic. If you can feel the aura of the earth surrounding you, you indeed are experiencing a Psychic connection. Every Psychic knows that nature is a sure-fire way to clear and reset your energy, and it is the easiest too!

You are influenced by an eclipse, full moon, and solar flares!

Have you ever felt ‘off’ and then noticed that it was a full moon? It is likely you are Psychic if you are energetically influenced by full moon, solar flares, an eclipse, or other events. These events often create havoc, or enlightenment, with Psychics because of the increased awareness, premonitions, vivid dreams, increased energy sensitivities such as headaches, vertigo, exhaustion, anxiousness, trouble focusing, etc. Once you really accept your Psychic ability, you will find that you are circling all the full moons on your calendar so you can prepare for the days leading up to and beyond these events for a more balanced and grounded energy.

You have trouble fitting in or finding your community!

Have you ever been told you are “too sensitive”? Psychics want to inspire love in the world, and among those around them, and often want others to sense their intentions but, this can leave others pulling away because they do not know how to connect on such an intimate level. Being authentic and expecting others to show the same level of authenticity can create challenges in achieving real and true relationships, leaving you feel like you do not fit in or do not have a support system of people who understand and just ‘get’ you.

If you are having the biggest ah-ha moment of your life right now, then you may be Psychic! Awareness is the first step and can be a catalyst for a life of clarity and insight! You owe it to yourself to experience the true potential of your Psychic awakening so you can live in alignment with your authentic purpose!

Are you ready to develop a deeper self-awareness, expand your intuition, and align to your goals in life? It’s easy to enroll in the Psychic Development Course with The Psychic Associates!

The Lion’s Gate Portal August 8th

The Lion’s Gate Portal August 8th

What exactly is The Lion’s Gate portal, you ask? In a nutshell, it is the alignment of planets and stars. Every year on August 8th the sun is in Leo, and Orion’s belt, the star Sirius, and the Earth all fall into alignment. This creates powerful energy, ripe for us to use while manifesting.

By now most people know what it means when they are told they can manifest their dreams into reality. For those of you who are still a little unsure of what manifesting is: in basic terms, it means “what you think about, you bring about! Throughout the year, we have many opportune times to harness the best energy to assist in expediting our dreams into reality! Those times are presented every month during each New and Full moon.

In addition to that, we typically have 3 Mercury Retrogrades a year, which are also opportune times to connect to optimal manifestation energy. But only once a year, do we have “The Lion’s Gate Portal”! Each year on August 8th, we have an incredible opportunity to manifest our hearts’ desires. This is all thanks to the opening of the Lion’s Gate portal.

With the lion (Leo) coming from the sun, it is thought that this planetary alignment creates a potent portal for manifestations to take place.

As an astrologer and holistic psychiatrist  Kayse Budd, MD notes, “During the Lion’s Gate portal, Sirius separates sufficiently from the sun to come into view. Since Sirius is the brightest star in our night sky, some ancient (and even current) mystics believed it infuses the earth with extra energy and light.”

She adds that ancient Egyptians worshipped Sirius as the goddess Sopdet, celebrating Sirius’ return in the morning sky as the start of the farming season and the beginning of a new year. “Healers and teachers in certain new age communities believe the energy coming from Sirius contains special elevating or activating energy that can help the Earth and her people evolve,” she says.

Taking the significance of the number eight into account, Budd shares that in astrology, it stands out most in terms of the houses and signs of the zodiac.

“The eighth house and eighth sign of the zodiac belong to Scorpio, so astrologically, eight has connections to power, transformation, energy, passion, and sexuality—all Scorpio themes,” she explains.

Eight also corresponds to the Strength card in the traditional tarot deck; this card features a woman calmly interacting with a lion, with an infinity symbol above her head. “Thus, the number eight also has esoteric symbolic connections to strength and to the lion,” Budd says.

Budd adds that eight is connected with achievement, goals, and the intersection of the spiritual and physical dimensions, signified by the interlocking circles of “8,” or the infinity symbol. “Those born under life path number are thought to be here to master the integration of spirit into matter,” she says, adding that similar to its tarot meaning, eight represents strength in numerology.

How to make the most of this energy!

Here’s what Budd and Kaerhart recommend doing the next time the Lion’s Gate portal opens:

 1. Lean into your inner Leo

The Lion’s Gate portal occurs during Leo season, and specifically, around the peak of Leo season, amplifying the themes of this zodiac sign. As such, Budd recommends tapping into your inner Leo—whether you were born under this sign or not!

“The sign of Leo contains and represents love, generosity, leadership, and creativity. When the sun is Leo, the entire world benefits from an infusion of these energies,” she explains, adding, “I think the best way to make the most of the Lion’s Gate is to do Leo things and aim to intensify the natural energy of the moment as much as possible.”

2. Focus on love

In addition to stoking your inner Leo, Budd says this is an excellent time to focus on love. “Love is a key part of Leo, and of the potential of the Lion’s Gate, as I see it,” she notes. Considered to be an energetic “portal,” the Lion’s Gate can connect you to the portal in your own heart, she explains.

“Do things that bring joy during and just before the Lion’s Gate to open and expand your heart,” Budd recommends.

3. Prepare for massive shifts

According to Kaerhart, the Lion’s Gate portal is also a good time to “examine how you’re currently exerting your power and consider the type of power you’d like to yield in the future.” This makes it an opportunity to start manifesting what you want to call in. Just don’t act rashly or focus on short-term gains, she adds, as eight represents the number of infinity. “Instead, use your energy wisely and trust that rapid growth is in store, preparing for blast-off,” she says.

4. Tap into your spiritual side

This portal is a potent spiritual time, and tapping into your own spiritual world will amplify this energy. Budd says now’s a chance to do your favorite spiritual activities—especially in a group, which can magnify positive energy and intentions.

“Getting together for ceremonies, meditations, chanting, yoga, dance, art, time in nature, etc., can amplify the energy of the Lion’s Gate,” Budd explains.

5. Practice gratitude

And last but certainly not least, Budd also recommends practicing plenty of gratitude around this time, as well as sending your love into the universe. “You can do this in meditation, in prayer, in dance, with a ritual, with a journal—however it occurs to you,” she says.

When you send your love to the Universe, she adds, it will most likely come back to your doubled, tripled, or more. “I look at the Lion’s Gate (and Leo Season, in general) as a time to build up my stores of love, joy, and gratitude. It is a time and a season for discovering what the self can really do,” Budd says.

In conclusion, this is one of the best times of the year to put your best foot forward in life to bring all your desires to fruition. But remember that manifesting works both in positive and negative ways. It is what your think about that you bring about. If you are miserable on Aug 8 and only think of all the negative in your life, guess what you will be manifesting more of! So, no matter what you do stay focused on only the wonderful desires you have. Make it a day full of joy and endearment, love and gratitude!

You can start planning now.   Remember to stay shiny!
