A Message from Akashic Records: August, 2008 PT.1 & Pt 2

A Message from Akashic Records: August, 2008 PT.1
Channeled by Jen Eramith, MA
============ ========= ========= ========= ======

What energy and experiences can we expect in August of 2008?

The energy of August 2008 is like a Supernova. It is a continuation of the rapid, heat-producing expansion that began in July. In fact, this expansion is something that is certainly not accomplished in a month or two. This expansion occurs over the course two to three years. The process began over one year ago, and you have been preparing for this supernova explosion of energy for between six and nine months. From November 2007 to March 2008, you experienced a period of intensification, like the packing of dynamite in order to prepare it for an explosion. Your lives and the energy around you became denser, in a way. Although all of you were moving toward the Light, things began to feel intense and crowded. You shifted into clarification and intensity in each of your individual lives and as a global collective. Spring, particularly in May and June, is the time when some space opened up for you to expand. Once that space opened up the true expansion, the
true energetic rush of personal and collective change, began. You have been feeling this energy through the month of July, much like a crackling vibration - a sense of possibility and a restless feeling that something big is about to occur. Some of the metaphors we have given you for the energy in July were like a rapid firing of an automatic rifle or the rapid popping of firecrackers. That was just the beginning of the true Supernova nature of the expansion that you are going through.

The month of August brings a more even tone to this energy, but far hotter expansion. We say heat not as a literal temperature change, but as a metaphor for what this expansion is like. As a fire produces heat through the breaking of bonds between atoms, a similar kind of burn has begun in the energy of planet Earth that guides and supports your lives. It began in July and will continue through the rest of the fall. August is the time when you reach the boiling point and begin a long, slow simmer. Depending on each of your individual choices, you will find that this sense of a slower burn carries you forward in your lives, especially if you are clear and honest with yourselves about your situation, your choices, and standing in your truth. If you are holding onto denial, deception, or old patterns, you will find that the expanding heat this month leads you to feel as if your engine is breaking down -- anything that is not working in your life will become
starkly evident in the months of September, October and November. We will discuss this in future months.

For now, the month of August gives you an opportunity for a slower, more consistent burn, but an intense and rapid expansion at the same time. It is an excellent opportunity to burn away any old habits that hold you back. This is a great time to stop smoking, or to begin volunteering in a cause you believe in. August is a time when you are likely to see a great deal of collective change -- you are likely to see more natural disasters that bring global attention to certain parts of the world. More particularly they bring more global attention to your interconnectedness as a human race and your interdependence with one another. You are likely to see this interdependence become more of a united front in regard to the way you burn your fossil fuels in what you are calling the energy or oil crisis. This includes the food crisis as well that is happening worldwide. You are likely to see this intensify.

You will find in August that you are more able to create a collective pursuit or a united front. August is a time when it will benefit you greatly to come together to take the bonds you have begun to build amongst yourselves through the spring and summer. Expand these loving connections into a sense of a larger collective community. For you, that may mean expanding yourself into a neighborhood, a city or even, for some of you, a sense of truly being part of a global society. It is vital that you begin to see yourselves in context. It is vital that you work to embrace the fact that your human existence is proof that you want to be here, that some part of your soul is deeply committed to the human form and the human collective; otherwise you would not be a human being at this time on Planet Earth. It is useful in August to embrace this idea and truly consider why you are here -- what parts of you are most deeply inspired by and connected to your fellow
human beings. This year, 2008, has been called the year of answering your calling. It is the year to find your purpose in being here and to answer that call. August is the time to look around at the human collective and your place in it, and consider making a much deeper commitment on a personal level to the human family in whatever way makes sense for you.

Can you tell us more about exactly how our personal lives will be affected by the energy of August, 2008?
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _

Yes, in your personal lives you are likely to see things get bigger. When you make a mistake it will feel bigger, when you do something kind for another person it will have a much greater effect. In general, everything is amplified in August. It is the nature of this Supernova energy to shed light on things and create heat. Heat is simply a generation of energy. It will be useful for you to try to stay calm, cool, and collected as things seem to get big. That being said, the energy of August is not necessarily chaotic, so while events, emotions, and experiences seem to get bigger, there is really no need to panic or to drastically change your personal choices or the direction in which you are going. In fact, for the most part, if you have found a course or a direction that works well or feels right to you, it will be important and useful to stay that course in August, even when that course seems to have a greater effect than you expected. Stay the course
of what feels most true, most clear, and most empowering in your lives. You will adjust to this larger energy over time if you will remain true to your highest sense of yourselves.

Similarly, you can use this amplification to see more deeply into the dynamics in your lives. If there is a relationship you are unsure about, watch in August for very clear evidence on which direction to take. Because everything will be amplified, it will be far easier to see what is really happening beneath the surface. In that way there is a continuation of what we have told you in the two prior months, which is that it is far more difficult for deception to occur on Planet Earth at this time. It will be more difficult for you to carry on denial or deception in any way. It will be far more difficult for any organization or institution to deceive individual human beings. You are likely to see individuals becoming disillusioned or disenchanted with endeavors they had previously become accustomed to or committed themselves to. You will see people, particularly world leaders, change their minds or take a new course in August. Anything that does not serve
the highest benefit of the human race becomes more obviously apparent and more undeniable. It has taken a great deal of human suffering to bring these misconceptions or illusions to the surface, so it may look like the world in somewhat battered at this point in time. It will continue to be important that you keep your hearts wide open and strive to be kind, tender and gentle with yourselves and others during the month of August 2008.

____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ ______

Are there any power days or days of importance during August 2008?
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ ______

August 10 and 11 provide a cooling period. It will be a time when truth will come into a more clear focus, but will be easier to work with or deal with any process that has occurred before August 10 and 11 that has brought up emotions. Another use of the metaphor of heat is to say emotional resonance, rage or passionate responses to events. Take these days to cool down and look at things outside your feelings with a more objective point of view. These are good days to get your feet on the ground and cool your head.

August 12 is a day of softening. It is a day you may feel there is a fog; it is not easy to push through to clarity. Have patience with yourselves on this day. You may not easily find clarity on August 12 and it will feel distinctly different from the energy on the 10th and the 11th. Have patience. August 12 is a good day to be particularly tender with yourselves. It is a good day to do things that comfort you and bring you to a greater sense of physical health and well-being.

August 13 is a day in which new possibilities open up for you individually. Pay close attention to the things that interest you on August 13. You will find new resources to help you move toward them on this day.

August 17 is a day of power. It is a day when it will be important for you to stand in your power, whatever that means, in your personal lives. To stand up for your truth, to remain true to yourselves, to say no to any person, event or force in your lives that would do you harm.

August 24 is a similar day of power; it has a softness to it, but it will be equally important on August 24 to stand in your power, consider what is most important to you and move toward that. Do not allow yourselves to be distracted by those things that are not important to you or that are not priorities in your life. Be well aware of what you wish to focus on in the bigger picture of your lives on August 24. Do your best to stay focused on those things.

What kind of hurricane season can we expect this year? What is the meaning and message of hurricanes in the United States?
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _

You will have an active hurricane season this year. At this time, as this message is channeled, the potentials for what that activity will look like have not been fully established. It is clear you will have significant hurricane activity; more than the average hurricane season. There are two primary directions this might take. Either you will see an unending series of small but significant hurricanes or you will see a period of intense quiet preceding a smaller, shorter series of far more intense hurricanes -- perhaps at the same level as hurricane Katrina. These potentials are not yet developed because humanity as a collective and planet Earth are continually renegotiating what will be of greatest service for you.

The meaning and message of hurricanes in the United States, as well as what you call typhoons or cyclones in other parts of the world, originates in a profound partnership with the collective will of humanity and Earth. Hurricanes are very deeply tied with the Enlightenment process of human beings and the planet. Hurricanes and cyclones stir the pot so to speak. Do you know this phrase, "Don't stir the pot"? We want to explain what this means. Often in a social setting where there is denial or illusion that has not been expressed or dealt with by the people involved, one person will come along and "stir the pot," meaning they will come along and say what has gone unsaid or create small but significant changes that begin to expose and unravel those repressed or ignored dynamics that were below the surface. It can look like this person has created trouble, but trouble cannot be created unless there was something out of alignment already in existence --
unless there was something in the pot to be stirred. When you are completely in alignment with your highest truth, nothing can stir you - nothing can upset or overpower you.

Hurricanes often provide a similar role. They are like the joker or coyote archetype in that they create destruction specifically for the purpose of bringing to light that which no longer serves you. Physically, they stir the air and the water into a frenzy. Similarly they stir up energy that has been too long held and too long ignored. A hurricane often brings to light that which has been buried below the surface. If you personally have been involved in a hurricane or cyclone, you can look to your personal history to see how those things that were holding you back, that were unexamined or unacknowledged before the hurricane, often became apparent and renegotiated after the storm. A hurricane tends to bring to light that which was buried. Often it will occur in your personal lives, as well as for you collectively, at a time when you are ready to bring to light a new level of withheld or repressed information or a dynamic that limits you as a collective.
In that way, you can think of hurricanes and cyclones as an intense, uncompromising spring cleaning.

At their best, these storms give you an opportunity for renewal; at their worst, they destroy everything and leave you little resource for rebuilding. But they always clear away what no longer serves you. They represent the force of destruction particularly for the purpose of renewal. You can see this in the United States with the example of Hurricane Katrina, which has come to represent a profound disillusionment with your government and social systems. It brought to light the existence of racism in a post Civil Rights Movement era, and the tragedy of class-ism in your world; it helped you to see what has yet to be healed by all of you collectively.

Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons do not occur as punishment for your behaviors. They are neutral occurrences that offer an experience for those who would be best served by them. All of you benefit when previously hidden information becomes available, even when that information is initially difficult for you to see. When it benefits all of humanity to see something, a storm will make itself big enough for you to pay attention. Storms arrive in particular areas based on the agreements of those who experience them, and each of you arranges to be just where you need to be when a storm arrives. Do not imagine that your soul has abandoned you when you dislike an experience, for each of you is led by Divine Love to be precisely where you will be best served in every moment of your lives. You are never alone, and you are never out of Love. Knowing this is the beginning of taking such full accountability for your lives that you move into Enlightenment. Any
denial of your experience is denial of your truest self.

You can expect that hurricanes will continue to bring to light that which needs to be seen in order for all of you to progress through Enlightenment. In that regard, the potential for hurricanes is that you can accomplish the disillusionment and renewal necessary for this year on Planet Earth through a long slow series of small hurricanes with minimal destruction. If you continue to stand in denial as a collective global culture in regard to the ways that individuals cede their personal power to governments and institutions, then the potential for a massive, more destructive hurricane builds in order to create a further experience in which your collective denial is more obviously destroyed. Through this, your collective empowerment is brought to light and enabled.

What is the most useful way for Lightworkers to engage the U.S. presidential campaigning in August of 2008?
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _

You will see the heat and expansion we have described in U.S. presidential politics during the month of August 2008. It will be what you might call a hotly-contested race. You will see violent words and perhaps even physical violence in regard to the upcoming election. For Lightworkers, it will be vitally important that you stay calm and resist the urge to foster a mentality that pits people against one another. It will be vital for each of you, on an individual basis, to carefully ride the balance between staying engaged enough to bring a cool head to the process without becoming so engaged that you lose track of the fact that all people are good. Particularly, resist the urge to lose track of your commitment to living outside of duality. During the month of August 2008, it will be incredibly tempting for you to use language and develop a perspective in which some people are good and some people are bad, or that some ideas are good and some ideas are
bad. The fact is, every person involved and every idea that arises is simply what it is - a person or an idea.

Much of the heat generated in August will be generated through people's personal resistance to what is. People try hard to believe that some people are bad or that some people are better than others, and this creates a great deal of energetic friction and vibrational static. It makes it difficult for you collectively to come to clarity. For Lightworkers, try to remain cool-headed and open-hearted. Even if you feel more attuned to some ideas and choose one side over another, resist the urge to think of anyone who disagrees with you as being inferior or bad. It would be particularly useful for Lightworkers every day, to develop the practice of actively rejecting the labels of good or bad. Do your best to engage in the process, talk to people about what you believe, what is important to you and then to listen and respect the words, ideas, and beliefs of others. This is all part of a greater process. The U.S. presidential election of 2008 is operating very
much like a hurricane. It is stirring the pot and bringing to light things in your culture, economy, religions and racial dynamics that no longer serve you. It is bringing to light that which remains to be healed. It is important that you not be swept up in what remains, but keep your eye on how to heal it. Keep your eye on the bigger picture. The campaign activities in August will be unnerving for some and you will have the ability to create an enormous healing force through your commitment to staying cool, calm, collected, open-hearted, tender and gentle.

End part one: From Keepers of the Akashic Records on August, 2008

The Akashic Records are an ethereal library, offering infinite information regarding every creation in the Universe. They hold an energetic imprint of a soul's journey from its inception until its return to Source. Every human being has access to their Akashic Records by divine birthright. There is a unique Akashic Record for every period of time, and the Records for the period can be accessed. As we approach each new month, the possibilities and probabilities of the month come into form, and can be understood as a general energy that each of us works with individually.

A Message from Akashic Records:August 2008 PT.2
Channeled by Jen Eramith, MA

How can we best connect with Source during August of 2008?

Always, your connection with Source is a personal dynamic. It is what you call religion and it is deeply personal. For some of you, prayer brings you to a deep sense of connection with your higher power; for others, prayer seems empty and hollow. For some, meditation brings you to an incredible level of peace; for others, meditation only makes you feel uncomfortable and restless. As always, your connection with Source is one that is there at all times and in all places. How you experience that connection with Source will always be a matter of how well you respond to your own personal needs, to your own personal language or experience of joy, happiness and fulfillment.

That being said, in August of 2008 you will often experience your connection with Source when you are in motion. For some of you, meditation will always work beautifully well, but for many of you in August, because the energy is as drastic as a star exploding, many of you will find that you need to stay in motion in order to feel connected - you will want to keep moving with the energy as it arises. You might develop an active spiritual practice during August. Consider taking walks instead of meditating or sitting in a spiritual group, or consider going for a walk with your spiritual group. Instead of praying by your bedside at night, pray on a hillside with the wind whipping around you. In general it will serve you to be in motion as you connect with Source and as you connect with your deepest, truest, highest self during the month of August 2008.

What else would the Keepers like us to know about August 2008?

You are so good and your hearts are so good. This truth can be a vital reminder, like a touchstone during the month of August 2008. While things become more intense and as you feel the heat of change expanding around you, that also means there is an amplification of all of the underlying messages you carry with you. For those of you who struggle with self-criticism, the voice of your inner critic may seem like a roar. For those of you who love to laugh and find laughter an easy thing to access, you will find that deep belly laughs emerge far more easily in August of 2008. The things that you enjoy will be bigger; the things you struggle with will be bigger. Do not imagine that things become more difficult, they just become bigger. The balance you have established in your lives will continue. The balance between joy and pain in your personal lives will be the same balance with bigger joy and bigger pain.

There is no need to panic. Again, there is no need to change the course of your lives if your lives are working well. On the other hand, if something in your life is not working well, it will amplify itself to the point of being undeniable -- you will need to revise it in order to move forward. Remember that you are good, remember that for every single human being your purpose here is to experience exactly what you have experienced and to move toward the Light through the path that you have established. If you will remember that and embrace that which you are, you will find that you can move forward into that which you want to become more easily. Remember that you are good, remember that you are blessed and remember that you are surrounded by loved ones; both in the human world and in the dimensions of Spirit. Every human being has a heart that yearns to connect with every other human being. You are surrounded by people yearning to connect. Any courage you can find to open the connection with others will bring all of you to a greater level of safety and connection. We encourage this - reach out to one another. Bless the hearts of everyone you meet -- bless your hearts.

The U.S. economy seems to be going through some pretty wild gyrations right now. In the context of the next 30 days, what is the best action that we as individuals can take to not get frightened about what we are hearing and reading in terms of the U.S. economy?

There is so much information about this. Even though you asked one specific question, there is more information available here that will in part help you avoid stepping into fear. In part, the answer to the question about avoiding fear is that fear can be diminished when you have more information.

The U.S. economy is oscillating -- moving up and down continuously - and over the course of those oscillations you have developed a general trend of going down. Through the month of August, the U.S. economy will continue this swing downward and it will catch even more momentum as it is moving downward. One way to think of it is that reality is catching up with itself or people are being called back into reality about valuation and evaluation. This process will continue, but it will not always look like a downward swing. As with the process with disillusionment, as soon as you start to see the thing that was previously unseen, suddenly all kinds of other things become visible and available. Imagine the way this works when you are watching a movie that is mysterious, in which the plot or the roles of certain characters are unknown. The moment that you grasp some connection between two characters, or you realize the truth of a certain plot point and you begin to see the overall picture, everything else seems to come into view as well. There is a sense of information cascading as the overall picture comes into your perception. As you put two and two together, you find that the overall picture comes with vast new pieces of information. Everything you have seen must be reevaluated based on your new viewpoint.

The U.S. economy is essentially giving you all the opportunity to reevaluate everything right now. This is your opportunity to reevaluate what you value, how you spend your time, what you spend your money on, and why you are here on planet Earth.

The U.S. economy had split into so many different realities -- with the different perspectives, beliefs, and evaluations of various individuals and institutions, -- that "reality" as defined by the US economy had become a tangled web of completely different realities overlapping one another. What you had was chaos and, within that, a great deal of gyration. Now, the U.S. economy is regaining the ground beneath its own feet. In some ways it is coming back down to Earth. You are going to see, through the course of August, that the U.S. economy will continue to do what people are calling a downturn. Some stocks or properties will become more highly valued; many more will become less valued according to the definitions of the economy because you are coming back down to Earth.

The changes you are seeing are not part of a chaotic process. The sense of chaos you are experiencing is actually the new realization of the complexity and disassociation that had developed in the economic system. It looks like chaos because things are happening unexpectedly -- outside the boundaries of what people had convinced themselves would happen, or outside the rules by which people have convinced themselves the economy works.

There is no sense here that the economy is flying off the handle or that it is somehow going to escape all of your ability to work with it. Instead it is just swinging downward, and the probability is that it will continue to swing downward for several months to come. The key to resolving your fears about this is to embrace knowing and acceptance that things are changing. The economy and your lives will not "go back" to what they were; you are all moving forward to something new and more accurately attuned to the reality you have chosen for yourselves. For many of you, the fear is less about devaluation of money and instead is more about the sense of losing control or losing your ability to predict what will happen tomorrow. Instead of living every day trying to hold onto the illusion that an economy is going to become as it was before, we invite you to let go of the way that you interpreted or worked with the U.S. economy before this summer. Assume that there is a new ground that you will be standing on and that you will be just fine. Most of you will end up where you started in your position in regard to the U.S. economy. You will have some debts and some assets, according to your individual path. There is no magic bullet in a general sense or an individual sense. You are being invited to pay attention, to think anew, and to see each day and each moment with fresh eyes. Your economy is moving into a new way of being, and you are invited to do the same. Resist the urge to hold your breath and wait for things to go back to the way they were. Instead, look carefully at your resources in the context of what you truly want in your life. Make your decisions based on the vision of your heart, rather than nostalgia for what you wanted at one time in the past.

Make an assumption that you are on a slippery slide at the playground. Just like on the playground, this slide does have an end, and that end arrives as a gently curve where things slow down and you touch the ground again. Your experience with the U.S. economy is as if you are just going down a slippery slide and you will find yourself at the end. The end is not a crash; it is just a new plateau and a new ground beneath your feet. In many ways, the steps you can take to avoid going into fear are the very same steps to get out of denial. Notice what your attachment is to the economy. Take a look at what you have invested in the U.S. economy both financially and emotionally. Most of you have some kind of emotional investment in the U.S. economy or in the idea of the U.S. economy. Take a look at your attachments and beliefs; take a look at what you are afraid of on a personal level. As we said, some people are afraid of losing control, other people are afraid of feeling unworthy, afraid of losing something, afraid of being worse than someone else or being better than someone else. All of these things are just ideas, but they create your reality so it is very, very important for each of you to evaluate what your attachments, investments and ideas are in regard to the US economy. Once you can personalize this, you will find that it makes a lot more sense.

As the U.S. economy is going through this big shift, it is actually not necessarily there to create a big shift for each of you as individuals. The only shift is that it furthers the necessity for each of you to be accountable for your choices -- to be aware of why you do the things you do. Make decisions based on what feels right for you rather than waiting for someone else to take care of things or rather than waiting for someone else to give you permission to take care of things. That is no different than it was a year ago regardless of what is happening with the U.S. economy. Take it as a personal journey. Let it be a source of reflection for you and know that you will, in a general sense, continue to see the numbers go down; you will continue to see people raise big questions about the economy and the way that it has been put together before. There is indeed a revolution occurring but there is nothing to fear, most of you will land right where you started in regard to the economy, and all of you will land right where you need to be for your highest good to be served.
