Beautiful Bandit In A Reading: “You can choose right now to feel good about yourself. If you have been beating yourself up, stop it now. Don’t let anyone else decide how you should feel about yourself. Taking responsibility for your actions means that when you have done something that you feel is out of integrity, you do something about it that is constructive and useful. Damning yourself with judgment, or allowing another to steal your self-esteem, is neither of those things. The Divine Mother is telling you to forgive yourself and use your energy now to live the best life that you can. It is time to take your life back.”
Spiritual Guidance: “You are one tough sweetheart, a spiritual gangster, a beautiful bandit, stealing back from the unworthy that which rightfully belongs with you. You have certain spiritual rights that cannot be denied you. Your dignity, power and grace, your sense of beauty and self-esteem, your chosen belief systems, your energy and your right to take up space in this world rightfully belong to your soul. Your faith in your spiritual connection with the Universe and your sense of your life purpose belong to your soul, too. Even when you make mistakes, the Great Mother loves and forgives you, knowing that you are doing your best and are her precious daughter. You have a spiritual right to be free from torment, cruelty and mental anguish. You alone own the right to choose your thoughts and claim your freedom to make your own choices. You are fierce with wisdom. You know that another cannot ever successfully steal what truly belongs to you – and if they try, your sacred rage will rise up, and you will not hesitate to stake the winning claim for what is rightfully yours. The Beautiful Bandit comes to you with a message – anything that you feel has been taken from you unfairly shall be taken back by you. Claim what is yours by spiritual right. Justice will prevail.”
Sacred Ritual: “Stand upright. Say aloud, ‘I claim the entirety of my divine inheritance. All that is rightfully mine through divine justice and divine mercy is now returned to me. Through my own free will, so be it.” *

This is such an important message; I feel like it speaks directly to me. And I bet it speaks to you too. Taking up space. Expressing every aspect of your Being. Embracing yourself, your divine feminine energy and your worth. Seeing your value. Kicking ass at being so amazingly you.
Why is that so hard to do? Why do we keep ourselves smaller; stuffed into the boxes that were made for us by others? Why do we limit ourselves, doubt ourselves, judge ourselves so harshly? We over analyze, we stress, we criticize and we lose faith in all that we have to offer the world. We give up way too easy. And we deserve better. So much better than that.
Often we go up to bat for others, for a cause we believe in. Animals, the planet, oppressed people. Yet we get the short end of our own stick. We are the first thing we cut out on when we are low on time and energy.
All that has to change. Right now.
Step into July with new resolve; strong intention; complete clarity of vision.
Embrace who you are. Cherish your individuality. Know that you really are perfect just as you are, but it is also ok to be a work in progress. We need our fierceness back. Our wild hearts need the chance to guide us.
We came here for a reason, and that reason is to be as powerful as we are capable of being. So much more powerful than we have yet to realize. And the only way to access this power fully is to commit to loving ourselves. Truly, deeply, authentically.
