Today August 8th is said to be the luckiest day of the year as Sirius' alignment with Earth coincides with the Orion constellation aligning perfectly. Each year on the 8th day of the 8th month (August 8th) a spiritual gateway (or portal) opens at its peak. Actually, this portal is said to open up between the 26th of July and August 12th. It’s a highly magnetic and apparently cosmic alignment that takes place.
Astrologically, this portal is called the "Lion's Gate Portal" due to the sun being in the sign of Leo (the lion). The manifestation portal opens as the moon aligns with the sun in Leo, creating a fresh lunar cycle, bringing passions to the forefront, and supercharging our ability to start fresh.
Soooo....how to manifest? I read up on a few different ways, and combined what I thought sounded perfect. Your version may be different but I believe that if you are throwing out to the universe your intentions, today and over the next few weeks it may be more successful than other times of the year.
Here is what I did:
1. Write down your manifestations. I used a special natural handmade paper I use for my soap labels. Now is the time of year for these to not be simple manifestations. Ask the universe for your wildest dreams!
2. Fold your paper in half (folding the paper toward you).
3. Set crystals on top of your paper. I selected crystals based on my manifestations (e.g. love for rose quartz).
4. Light a candle.
5. Stand in a steamy shower thinking about the life you want. As the water hits your skin envision how you want your life to be, closing your eyes.
6. Place your paper with crystals on top outdoors, protected from the elements, so they can charge during tonight's moon..
My daughters first discovered these tips on Tik Tok and I spent some time with them yesterday and today looking at various ways to create and manifest your best life. I know.....the things you learn on Tik Tok these days but it can't hurt to try, right?
