I feel called to write something tonight on this auspicious eighth day of the eighth month of the year! I was born on the eighth (of another month) and have always felt a special connection to the number, particularly because it also serves as the infinity symbol. I love doodling 8's and actually wanted my wedding date this year to be 08.18.18 because of all the 8's but I was veto'd, which is totally OK because when it's this hot all I end up wanting to wear in the way of clothes is basically nothing, so a long white dress in 91 degrees wouldn't have been ideal.
Apparently this is a very potent day in the universe and there's something called the Lionsgate Portal, which I hadn't heard of until a week or so ago, but I read up on it as part of my new daily ritual of reading the goings-on of the cosmos and I even did a little ritual tonight to welcome in restorative and loving divine energy. I don't have all the answers and sometimes I can't tell if something I try "works" but what I do know is that this ritual involved me sitting in meditation for 10 or so minutes and I felt deeply at peace and connected to something greater than my self. It was beautiful and I continue to welcome in all this loving energy.
Another cool thing I did (if you're into cool things) is made a delicious smoothie bowl for dinner tonight. I know, kind of an odd dinner choice, but it's VERY hot tonight and even hotter in my apartment that's been baking in the sun all day, and so I decided to cool down with a light combo of ingredients that included dairy-free cashew(!) yogurt, organic peanut butter, fresh blueberries & raspberries, chia seeds, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, ground flaxseed meal, and a dash of cinnamon. It was truly delightful and turned out to be a wonderful way to end this wonderful day.
