September 9th opens the 9/9 portal each year to purify, cleanse, and close off anything that needs to be released in order to take the next steps towards your Spiritual Awakening. Because 9 symbolizes the end of a cycle, the energy is double on 9/9, and serves as a time of introspection and healing. You are free to give away all your stress and anxiety to the Universe. September 9 may be the most powerful day of the portal, but the two to three days on either side of this date will have some pretty charged-up energy as well, so you have plenty of time to start growing through the changes initiated during this time.
As 9/9 is a time for the energetic closing of cycles, it might comfort you to keep in mind there is a time and place for all things to end. You can either let go of those things willingly and naturally or you can let the Universe take them from you, which most usually feels more difficult. You need to be able to release the old in order to make room for the new! The energies in alignment with 9/9 offer accelerated growth. During this time, the universe will also force change through endings – this is where it may hurt but keep in mind this change is for your highest good and helping you move into a new phase of life. Any material possessions that you have held on to that you can now let go of will serve as one less thing holding you back and stuck to old energy that no longer serves you, and will bring you one step closer to your Spiritual Awakening.
- How do I make the most of this energy?
- Anything that has been eating at you mentally or emotionally, or a thought hovering in your mind is basically already a decision waiting to be brought into reality. Just do it. If you’re questioning something, chances are you need to let it go. You subconsciously already know the answer; it’s time to bring it to light. This could be a relationship, friendship, job, moving homes, etc.
- Forgive yourself, absolutely, for whatever you are beating yourself up about. It’s time to just let go and move on. This can be things you wish you did or didn’t do, feelings of comparing yourself to others, and any other inner trauma that you replay in your mind. You deserve to be free and release these thoughts! By forgiving yourself completely, you will also be one step closer to your Spiritual Awakening.
- Bring consciousness to your daily life! You need to be able to see the past for what it is without feeling resentment, enjoy the present moment without worrying about the future, and still be able to care about the future without being attached to the outcome. When you expand your consciousness you will feel clear and full of gratitude. In order to do this, you need to catch yourself in your thoughts. Anytime you experience a negative thought, you need to process it and think about why you are feeling that way and how that feeling is serving you. If you feel negative emotions when thinking about something or someone, you still have healing to do there.
By facing our fears and letting go of that which no longer serves us we become stronger beings and are able to flow with life more effortlessly and truly appreciate what we have, as well as recognize abundance and blessings in all forms.
