Mentality is Reality
Mercury, the planet of intelligence, logic, and communication, pays us a visit this week, and has also been the energetic frequency of this entire year. This week, our inner and outer communication skills are being tested, including self-talk, honesty, and integrity in thought and word. The entire month of August provides an opportunity to learn and grow through the Law of Cause and Effect. This is a month to learn how to cultivate inner strength.

We can deceive ourselves with our false beliefs and perceptions based on what others think and believe. Before listening to the world on the outside, it is most important to listen to the world on the inside. The inner world reflects the source of Truth that will eventually be revealed on the outside.
Beliefs are like colors of the rainbow. They are each beautiful and unique, and none is more important than another. Some work together to create new colors, and others don't mix as well. It is vital that we, in society, have various beliefs. We test each other, push each other, and expand one another with our differences. If everything under the Sun was made in the first 6 days of creation, then that means that every belief and possible perception already exists in the mind of the Divine. None of us has the power to judge another based on belief. Each one of our beliefs is Divine, because
