July’s Theme: Creating Conscious Community And Connection


This month we’re focusing on how to create conscious connections and communities. Whether you’re someone who prefers small groups to big crowds or loves a big party where you can mix and mingle, there’s no doubt that we’re social creatures and we can truly learn a lot from one another. Over the next few weeks we’ll explore the energies within ourselves and our world and create a more conscious awareness around how we best connect to others.
So let’s get started!

Soul Shine Crystal Prescription

Pyrite, Tiger Eye, Citrine, Sunstone, Honey Calcite are all excellent crystals for creating conscious connection. Come in to the store to learn more about these crystals and how to make them a part of your daily life.

Soul Shine Chakra Focus

This month we’re focused on our Solar Plexus. This chakra is a center for our ability to truly know ourselves and to become more fully aware of our interests and our abilities. When this chakra is aligned we can develop our talents and abilities and use them freely to better know ourselves and others. Our impact on the world can be enhanced by this knowledge too! Often associated with the element of fire, you might be surprised to find that this chakra is also the center of our personal values of mercy, warmth, and true compassion. After all, when we are truly aware of who we are, we become more able to express mercy, acceptance, and love to others.

Soul Shine Energetic Color

This month our chakra aligns beautifully with our color and that color is a bright and beautiful yellow. Sunny, warm, joyful, and brilliant, yellow is full of hope, idealism, courage, and personal power. No wonder people reference a “sunny disposition: Yellow is the color of warm summer days and powerful self awareness. It’s bursting with joy and possibility.

Messages And Mantras

Since our solar plexus and our monthly theme align so well, we thought we’d share some awesome affirmations and mantras to get you started on a month of conscious connection to yourself and others.

Try a few of these on or create your own and go out into the world bringing your brilliant yellow, sun-filled self into deeper awareness as you do.

I am worthy.

Say this one until you believe it. Make this a goal thought and work toward it. Whatever you do to get there, once you do, you're in for an amazing ride!

I define who I am and allow others to do the same.

One of the toughest parts of connecting with others can be deciding where your definition of who you are comes from. Are you allowing others to define you or are you rewriting yourself to make others comfortable? If so, it may be time to give this mantra a go. When we let go of what we’re supposed to be, we are free to fully be who we are.

Speaking of which…

I am comfortable with my power and my abilities are my own.

In a society that tells us not to “brag” it can be hard to be confident in our abilities and to truly embrace the fact that we’re pretty awesome.  When we accept that we’re powerful beyond measure and that our abilities are things we possess to improve our lives and the lives of others, we can get comfortable with owning exactly what we bring to the table. And that’s a beautiful thing.
