Spiritual Ascension

8/8/23 – The Celestial Awakening

Those of you that know me by now, know that I have a deep connection with Lyra, Egypt and Sirius and that the Lion’s Gate Portal is probably my biggest cosmic event every year. The downloads are spectacular and the information streaming in is beyond description although I try my best to share them with you in a sensible way here. This year’s portal will be even more special! Why? Well….

The 2023 Lion’s Gate Portal will be remarkable because it is set to be one of the most powerful and transformative in recent decades.

During this alignment, the Sun and Moon will be located in the zodiac sign of Leo, which is associated with self-expression, creativity, and personal power. This means that the energies of the Lion’s Gate Portal will be highly focused on the realms of passion, ambition, and self-discovery. So…

Cosmic enthusiasts and spiritual seekers alike, mark your calendars!

As the heavens align once again, we prepare to step through the mystical threshold of the Lion’s Gate Portal on 08 August 2023. This cosmic gateway holds the potential to:

  • Elevate consciousness to new levels,
  • Release old and stagnant energies that no longer serve us, and
  • Embrace the inevitable…transformation!

Understanding the Lion’s Gate Portal

The Lion’s Gate Portal is an astronomical event that occurs annually when the sun, the Earth, and the star Sirius align in the sky. Sirius, also known as the “Spiritual Sun,” is one of the brightest stars in the night sky and holds profound spiritual significance across various ancient cultures. When it aligns with our sun during this period, it opens a heightened flow of cosmic energy, enabling a powerful connection between the spiritual and physical realms.

The connection to the astrological sign Leo adds to the portal’s mystique, as Leo is represented by the lion, symbolizing courage, strength, and royalty as seen on my favorite Tarot card! This alignment of energies creates a potent cosmic cocktail, urging us to awaken our inner lion-hearted selves and embrace our true divine essence, courage and hidden strength.

Spiritual Significance of the Lion’s Gate Portal

The Lion’s Gate Portal is more than just an astronomical event though. It carries deep spiritual meaning across diverse esoteric traditions. In ancient Egypt, the rising of Sirius, known as the “Dog Star,” was associated with the flooding of the Nile River, bringing fertility and abundance to the land. Moreover, it marked a time of renewal and spiritual awakening.

Spiritualists and metaphysical practitioners believe that this celestial alignment enhances our connection to higher dimensions, offering an opportunity to receive higher wisdom and guidance. During this time, cosmic energies flood the Earth plane, catalyzing personal growth and spiritual evolution.

The portal’s energies are believed to resonate with the heart chakra, which is considered the bridge between the physical and spiritual realms. As such, this period encourages us to open our hearts to love, compassion, and forgiveness, not only for others but also for ourselves. It’s a time to release old emotional wounds and embrace self-empowerment, leading us to a deeper understanding of our life purpose. Focusing on truly forgiving, forgetting and moving on from previous hurts is what sets you free. And yes, I’m the first one to say that I can forgive but I cannot forget what happened as I am only human. But with time it dawned on me that, to “forget” merely means that once you have seriously forgiven someone or an event that made you sad, you no longer spend your days overthinking and over-analyzing the hurt. You forgive, you let it go and move on with your life, making the most of your short life experience as this is ultimately what we came here to do – to experience LIFE!

Preparing for the Lion’s Gate Portal

To make the most of this auspicious event, it’s essential to prepare ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Here are some practical ways to align with the Lion’s Gate energies:

  1. Meditation and Mindfulness: Make time, even if it is just 10 minutes out of your busy day to engage in daily meditation or mindfulness practices to quiet the mind and connect with your inner self. This allows you to tune into the cosmic frequencies and absorb the transformative energies of the portal that is building up.
  2. Cleansing and Purification: Rid yourself of stagnant energies by cleansing your living space, using techniques like smudging, decluttering, or creating an altar dedicated to this event. I love doing a special and sacred bath cleansing and meditation as the energy is potent.
  3. Crystal Connection: Crystals are known for their energy-amplifying properties. Work with crystals like clear quartz, amethyst, and lapis lazuli to enhance your spiritual journey during this time. You can charge them in the sun (ideal for the Northern Hemisphere now) or under the next Full Moon on 1 August!
  4. Journaling: Reflect on your intentions, goals, and desires for personal growth. Write down what you wish to release and what you want to invite into your life during this transformative period. (I have created the perfect Journal for you and it will be available next year – Look out for “Daily YinSpiriration”!
  5. Heart-Centered Practices: Embrace acts of kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. Practice gratitude and extend it to all aspects of your life. This should be a daily practice, regardless of the Portal opening.

Harnessing the Lion’s Gate Portal Energies

As the Lion’s Gate Portal reaches its peak on 08 August 2023, the energies are at their strongest. Here then are some ways to harness these energies and make the most of this spiritual occasion:

  1. Set Intentions: Take time to set clear and positive intentions for your personal and spiritual development. Focus on areas where you wish to grow and the aspects of your life you want to transform.
  2. Visualization: Engage in visualization exercises, envisioning yourself stepping through the Lion’s Gate Portal with confidence and grace, leaving behind all that no longer serves your highest good.
  3. Creative Expression: Embrace your creative side during this period. Whether it’s through art, writing, dance, or music, let your creative expression flow freely, allowing you to tap into your innermost emotions and desires.
  4. Seek Higher Guidance: Connect with your spiritual guides, angels, or ascended masters through prayer or meditation. Ask for their guidance and support as you embark on your journey of self-discovery.
  5. Gratitude Ritual: Create a ritual of gratitude to express appreciation for the blessings in your life and the lessons learned from past experiences. Gratitude opens the heart and invites more abundance into your life. I love the simplicity of the daily offerings in Bali and what better way to say thank you than to place a pretty flower next to an amazing sweet-smelling incense stick.

As the Lion’s Gate Portal opens on 08 August 2023, it beckons us to awaken our hearts and embrace the transformative energies it bestows. This cosmic event is an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and spiritual elevation. By preparing ourselves and consciously harnessing these energies, we can embark on a journey of healing, empowerment, and alignment with our true selves. Embrace the magic of the Lion’s Gate Portal, and let it lead you towards a brighter, more awakened future.

Healing and trying to become aligned with our most authentic selves is a never-ending quest for those of us on a spiritual journey. The journey to higher consciousness and spiritual evolution may seem unbearable and unfair at times but please know that you, dear human and fellow kindred spirit, you are so loved and revered by beings beyond your knowing. Continue to hold on to your faith in all those wonderous things seen and unseen for there is more support for you and your hero’s journey than you ever thought possible. Believe me, I know….

With much Love, Light, Joy, and Strength to you for this amazing upcoming event,
