A very resonating share from Lee Harris again this month. I find much reiteration in it for some of the specifics I’ve been moving through and the reasons for my taking a personal sabbatical.
Lee also talks about the importance of our lower chakras and that moving the energy through them is the next wave of evolution for everyone collectively now, for integrative wholeness. This is something I and others have also been writing about and focusing on so much in our own shares and teaching during workshops over the months and recent years. Nice to hear the energy is anchoring in for all at this time.
Here’s Lee on a month and time period that includes themes on a collective exhale, consolidation to remedy chaos and to manifest, manifesting both for self and for all, increased speed of release isn’t regression, kundalini rising in all, relationships, change, and success in collaboration, bringing freedom to the fear mind, you are in charge of the volume dial in your experiences, and awareness of self-judgement as part of the release.
You can watch the video or read the transcript below.
Hello and welcome to the Energy Forecast for July 2015.
I’m filming today in Mill Valley, Marin County, among the redwood trees. And redwoods, if you ever have the chance to experience them, are incredible, incredible beings. They’re like guardians. They’re so ancient and so powerful. So being down here among them feels perfect for today.
Collective Exhale to build Strength
Part of the reason I wanted to come here is because when I tuned in on this coming month, the words “collective exhale” came up as an energy theme. Collective exhale meaning, the intensity of the first six months of the year have now been powered through and for all of us this month there is an opportunity to just (Lee exhales) – experience the out breath. And while you’re in the out breath, you will get to integrate and consolidate everything that has gone before, every part of you that has changed as a result and been influenced ready for where we are going next. Because new reserves of inner strength and the fire inside you are going to be very big themes for the second half of the year. So I’ll touch on that in a moment.
But first to come back to this idea of consolidation.
Consolidation as a remedy for Chaos
This message is especially for those of you who are pulling your hair out at me right now, and saying “there is NO WAY I can take an out breath, there is no way I can consolidate anything.” You’re the very people who really need to take space, slow down, stop answering the phone to everybody, do whatever it is that you need to do to calm down.
Because this first six months of this year have been faster and more intense than ever before. There is a mass awakening going on and an activation of our kundalini energy in all of us, which I’ll speak of more in a moment.
So within all of that energy going on around and within you, you absolutely have to take the time to calm your own nervous system down, when and wherever you can. So that it and you can get used to going in and out of this new speed we’re all in.
For those of you who are actually either doing quite well within yourselves or are beginning to feel that natural slowing down happening in yourself and your activities, July really represents an opportunity to consolidate everywhere you have been and everything you’ve been going through.
Many of you have spoken in recent months about the acceleration of intense and meaningful dreams, or the experience of old friends/partners/lovers from the past popping up in your life. All for clearing yes, and for you to experience a new relationship with your past.
July is the month where the stimulus and impetus of that clearing can calm down, and you can get to open out your heart, open out your mind and see how do you feel now and think about these old things now. Because life has really changed for everybody on Earth in the last six months.
So even if you tried to remember how you felt last December, it will be hard for you to actually get in touch with how last December felt, because so much is shifted.
And when we are more unconscious we can be chaotic in our human journeys. As in we can get pushed around by people or events and pulled from pillar to post (as we like to say in England), without really any sense of where we’re going or why anything is happening to us.
Consolidate to Manifest Clearly
But the more you wake up to the reality that energy is dictating everything that is happening to you and start to open up your senses so that you can feel that energy moving through you, and the energy coming toward you, the more you open up to energy being a part of every moment. And with that awareness, the more you can start to consciously direct what it is you’re doing, where it is you’re going and what it is you would like to manifest next. This is a foreign concept to people who’ve never thought that way before, but to more and more people on Earth now, this understanding is becoming normal. You see it being normalized in everyday conversations.
So how do you know you’re a clear manifester? That what you wish to intend for can come to you easily? First, you need to consolidate what’s already inside you.
So by consolidation and July being a great month for that, I mean;
- Sit and reflect on everything that’s happened for you in the past 6 months or more.
- Journal and intend for where you would like your life and your journey to go next.
Take some time to consolidate where you’ve been, so that you can then very clearly decide where you would like to go next, rather than dragging the debris of the past into your future manifestations.
Manifesting for Self and for ALL
And remember, when intending or visioning, there is no such thing as a ‘wrong’ goal.
Sometimes people will say to me, “Oh, well I’d like to manifest xxxx for myself, but when the world is suffering and others are worse off than me, I’m challenged by manifesting this for myself.” And the point is that the two things can coexist in you.
For example, if you want to manifest something that makes you feel more secure in life, but you feel bad about that desire because you recognize other people are in more insecure positions than you, let BOTH of those energies be true for you.
It means you would like to be humanitarian and help others as much as you can, yes, but you’re also going to still have this energy or desire that you want to feel a little more secure, whatever that means for you.
So you can work on manifesting or visioning for both at the same time (manifest for ‘world improvements’ as well as ‘self-improvements’).
Or, focus on your desire for you, and when it manifests you will get to a place where your openness will be that much more present as a result. Because you’ve manifested an element for yourself that you recognized would support you. Which then allows you from your feeling of support, to go out there and be more humanitarian towards others.
Speed of Release = You are not Regressing (even though it seems that way)
We live in a dualistic world and dualistic thoughts are very high at the moment, more so than ever before. Again, if you’re an aware or an awake person it won’t surprise you to notice how quickly you’re going through feelings or perceptions on a daily basis now, such is the speed of awakening.
And remember, you’re not regressing if you go backwards in your own perception. The idea you can have that you’re going over an old issue can be depressing for many, but this is part of the journey of evolution that we all go through. I released a new A to Z of Energyvideo this month called You Are Not Regressing, You’re Evolving, so you might want to check that out if you are worried you’re going backwards. We can put a link to that here for you so that you can check it out.
So as much as you can, take July to create space to consolidate and exhale. Take this space to decide where you would like to go in your personal life in the next six months, and also what would you like to see changing for and in the world for the next six months.
I spoke last month about one step forward, one step back (and occasionally) one step sideways being the energy of June for people in their lives. And we did see that playing out on the global stage too. There were some acts of progression, there were some acts of regression and there were some sideways energies that none of us saw coming.
July will be a lot more spacious because energy can only remain intense for a certain amount of time before it either fizzles out or explodes.
Kundalini Rising in ALL
And the space of July is important because of a strong message that I keep receiving about a more mainstream kundalini activation now happening in the collective.
Kundalini energy is essentially our life force energy. And the base or the root chakra is where it roots – the energy center in which we have the foundation our creative, sexual and life force energy. In our current society, we tend to be comfortable living more up here (Lee demonstrates heart center area of the body up to crown chakra) than down here in our lower chakras. With spiritually developed people there can be a tendency to be open in areas of heart, throat chakra (communication), third eye (vision and intuition) and crown chakra (connection to spirit).
But in a predominantly ‘mental’ society, even spiritually-developed souls often don’t go down below and balance the lower chakras, as these are the more dense and muddy energies in our current society. This level of clearing and activation is the next phase in general for the world in its awakening.
A lot has been done, if you like, over the last 10 years also to rapidly develop expression of communication, understanding of senses and intuition and the opening of the heart. That’s becoming much more prevalent everywhere. But the next phase is to go down and purify through the stomach and activate that base.
Relationships and Change and Success in Collaboration
The stomach is where our human relationships are, so many of you will have a sensitivity around or a withdrawal from many relationships in the next few months while you go through this kundalini activation. Because you won’t want to play it out through fighting with others.
Creative partnerships, sexual partnerships and anything that feels like a potent tribal energy will thrive during the coming months. Whether you’re dancing with a group, anything group-focused that has a wildness in the body and expression in the body, there will be truly cosmic experiences to be had in the next few months due to the Kundalini energy around us. Some of you will go through windows that you’ve never opened for yourself through and in the body. But coupled with that, the ultimate aim of the life force awakening that is kundalini, is to get you to a place where all systems are go and allsystems are open.
So it’s pretty big stuff and it’s not something that you want to go into naively or in any great hurry.
Bringing freedom to the ‘Fear’ Mind
Because it takes time for the body to learn to withstand having such an open, vital life force and it also takes time for you as a human being with your thoughts and fears about;
“How safe am I to be me the world?”
“Will I be judged?”
“Will people attack me?”
“Will people not like me as much?”
To burn through all of that inner-programming, and to allow yourself to become who you want to be or are to be next, is why you are here. Regardless of all of the people around you and how they may or may not react to it.
So this awakening in the base chakra will show up for you in very potent ways. In creativity and also acts around physical action, exercise, sexuality there will be an awakening of an energy and the life force in you that you will be able to privately explore, most of you. Some of you will explore it in partnership.
But there is a message here too that from September onwards, this energy (that the mainstream are now opening to over the summer) many of you will start to go out into the world and be a part of this wave of change. A coming period in which we see yet another rise of innovations and creativity to bring positive changes in the world.
Creators are Waking
So it’s nothing to be afraid of, but a little like pregnancy, the pregnant mother (and also the father) tend to be very protective of the mother’s body and sensitivity during that phase. In order to make sure that the baby and mother are protected in a way they can both safely transform.
So think of it that way. You’re giving birth to:
- Your creative fire
- Your sexual fire
- Your life force
All of these areas will rise in and through you in the coming months, opening new energies and catalyzing old blocks and limitations to release.
Traditionally when people are unconscious of Kundalini energy rising inside them, or they don’t really know what’s going on with their inner body, they will project it outwards. They might fight each other, argue with each other, or let that energy run into their outer life in ways that can be destructive or chaotic.
It’s the kind of person who walks into a room and everyone knows they’re there, not only because of the way they hold themselves, but because they move around that room and impact everybody and perhaps even the furniture. That’s a kind of life-force energy that is not centered, and not flowing in a balanced way through the body. Instead it’s playing out in a destructive or invasive way in the outside world.
So you’ll certainly see some of that behaviour flying around within people who’re more unconscious of themselves, but we’ve seen that flying around for quite a while, because of course this energy has been growing for quite some time.
But the good news is that July gives you an invitation to have much more space aroundhow you bring that life-force energy into your life and also, for the very intuitive among you, to start to recognize and feel that your inner body is feeling very different.
There is a reason that the inner body is feeling different. We can develop the upper chakras and it will sustain us so far. It will give us more open relationships, more open communication and feelings of well-being than we knew before, and that’s all well and good. But the next level of awakening comes when we extend this openness down to the base and root chakras, inviting the awakening to reach full alignment. When this happens, miraculous changes happen in our outer world.
And miraculous changes are what we’re needing right now on the planet as a whole. We are going through these changes as individuals, in order for us to help create those miraculous changes as a whole.
So we’re coming into the second half of 2015 where kundalini energy is going to be an increasingly strong presence, and many people will experience spontaneous awakenings.
Work with the volume dial in your experiences
So if you do have any sudden strange experiences in your garden or in your house, that are epiphany like or suddenly open you to see or feel something you hadn’t anticipated, just sit and breathe through it when it happens. (Lee takes a deep breath in and out) Tell yourself, “I am safe. I can receive this energy.”
Remember you’re in charge of the volume dial. Often with spirituality, we can feel that we are the unwilling participant or even victim of a spiritual or psychic experience that happens to us. And what we must remember is that you can collaborate with spirit. You can say words like, “I ask that this calm down now. I ask that this intensity slows down. I ask for a few days of peace.”
Remember to ask that of your personal experiences in life as well as when asking for help from angels or guidance or guides, whatever name you give it.
So we’re still here everybody. We’re still here on Planet Earth, one day at a time, one step at a time. But there is a very strong sense of an opening and a peace energy that is stronger than ever before, that if you make sure you are not being overstimulated and being a guardian of giving yourself to peace and stillness moments in your life, you will feel it deeply. It will infuse you. It will magnetically connect you to the right people at the right time.
And in the interim periods (for the hedonists among you, and I can relate to that ), yes it’s fun to always be in joy and bliss, but those times will probably be peppered with interim times where you need to perhaps power down for a while, or you find yourself spontaneously recalling a difficult situation or emotion.
For example, you may have a great career opportunity that presents itself to you, and you’re really amazed that’s happening. And yet, a few hours later, you might suddenly recall the time that you had your biggest career heartbreak that you’ve been working through the layers of. This is deeply connected to the success moment. When you open in a higher direction, the lower part of you that closed down in the past, gets stretched and it rises up for release. And the more aware and awake we become, the more we consciously feel and see these things.
Self-Judgment can be part of the release
Don’t go to self-judgment if it seems you are in a ‘backward’ step. Catch yourself if you self-judge. Seeing your own self-judgment is just great awareness. Think of it that way.
If you catch yourself being self-judging, remember that in the past you would have been unconscious about that self-judgment. Instead of just hearing the voice, you would’ve stopped yourself doing something because you felt that self-judgment.
If your reality now is that you’re just disappointed that you caught yourself self-judging, you’re absolutely heading in the right direction. Hold the awareness of the judgment. Laugh at it. Let it go. There’s no need to judge yourself just like there’s no need to judge anyone else. Everyone, including you, is doing your absolute best.
That’s July folks!
I have a couple of events coming up. In London I will be doing an Energy Tune-up evening and a meet and greet and that’s on Wednesday, August 12. So to check that out you can click here. And in September, and I will be at a channelers’ conference, channeling as one of eight channelers and that’s in Los Angeles. Click here to check that out.
So until next month everybody, you can check out all my offerings in The Portal, which we just redesigned and relaunched, so if you’d like to check The Portal out there will be a clickable link to it on the next screen. (Transcript readers click here.)
Lots of love to all.
This is a great article that combines humor and seriousness around important topics for reflection. It goes along with things both Laura and I have shared about the importance of balance, not forgetting our parts, shadow work value, grounding, and the physical being as key as the spiritual, so integrating lower chakra work with the upper chakras is what will bring us wholeness..not escapism and denial, which is the either/or syndrome.
Thank you, Julian, for articulating these very important topics and considerations! A note from Julian’s reply to a commenter on ZenGardner.com:
OK – I’ll admit – this article combines tongue in cheek humour and serious reflection..
‘To posit’ (see beginning) is not ‘to know’ – it means to put forward a suggestion. I do not know.
So I am stimulating our thinking process here – getting it to look around at elements that it may not have engaged with before – and digging at the ‘purist spiritual’ outlook that seems not to be able to integrate sexuality into spirituality because they think it degrades it.. Likewise – those of this opinion also refrain from taking actions to do something practical to improve life on this planet..

I’ve been wanting to share about this topic for a while, but hadn’t the time to put together my thoughts. I was prompted again the other day, to bring it to light, as I heard some rap songs playing somewhere that I was, which made me shake my head at how degrading they were about women, the female body, and sex in general. I was sad and also upset thinking about how people go around singing along with these songs on a daily basis, creating chants and affirmations that are completely conditioning them into more unconscious and blind acts and feelings that are harmful to themselves, others, and the collective at large – this being just ONE way this continues to take place.
It hit a deep chord, to say the least, that stirred my lower Chakras into unrest over the ways we are continually bombarding ourselves with conditioning that destroys our potentials to be all-empowered.
This is not a new topic for me, although I may not have shared yet about it, however since we also discussed this in depth while on our sacred journey in Peru – how priestesses and priests used sexual alchemy in spiritually empowering ways – and I’ve been feeling another surge of lower Chakra energy waves coming through personally and collectively in the vein of this theme, I felt to share it in more depth.
Sexual alchemy was something practiced amongst the high priests and priestesses of the ancient civilizations, who held this sexual knowledge and utilized it for transmutation, divinity of union, sexual rituals of spiritual initiation and activation, healing and enlightenment, Earth communion to create harmony and abundance through harvests, and more. Being that I remember myself practicing this in many of my other lives, it is not simply an idea, but a personal reality embodied in my DNA.
We then have the churches and patriarchal societies that destroyed and ensured this knowledge would be hidden, and anyone involved in it, to be punished, tortured, condemned to “hell”, and even killed. And then from this repression, guilt, fear, and hidden suppression we then get things like degradation of women, sex becoming something done secretly or held as “dirty”, and pent up energies that violently abuse the beauty, power, and spirituality it once was revered to embody.
The nature of sacred, sexual magick and alchemy hasn’t changed, as that knowledge and power always has been and could be accessed whenever we want, as it is the root of our existence.
It is the conditioned beliefs and fears that have distorted these sacred acts of creation, once again in effort to suppress our ability to be empowered, whole, and consciously sovereign co-creators of life.
Charlotte Szivak does such a wonderful job shedding a little light on this subject of sexual alchemy and magick, that I am going to share her insightful article on this topic. And perhaps you’ll be inspired to explore this topic more, as well as dig deeper into your own experience to explore just how this energy may be suppressed in your own life, as we are all collectively affected by this.
As Charlotte shares:
“The sacred actually lives within your body. By engaging in conscious acts of sex, it can lead to transcendent experiences of bliss and self-realization. Many of these sacred sex leaders would teach how to direct desire and raise emotional vibration in order to achieve one’s goal. They don’t speak, however ‘to the power of sexual desire used as fuel to have our wildest dreams come true. This is the secret beyond the secret: sex magic’.
When we engage with intent, we do so by remembering that sacred sex is so much more than just the mere physical joining of our bodies in orgasmic delight. It releases the pain of the unexpressed anger suffered in silence for a millennium in shame and perversion carried around, and sexuality is transformed. We become vulnerable, authentic, transparent and powerful. Igniting our souls and awakening our hearts in become the sacred door or gateway to expanded experiences of orgasmic ecstasy. Remember, it is love that invokes the divine.”

This piece channeled through for the sacrum area, which both my client and I had sensed, with current shifts for her, was most empowering given her experiences. She was open to any inspiration that presented itself, as well as the size, so this is what has come through our connected energy waves.
The design is fairly large at about 10 ¼” long from very tip to tip and 5 ¾” at its widest point. It will begin at the very “tail end” and then from sacrum, work its way up a couple of Chakras.
There were a few things my client was drawn to energetically, but how that translated, was left up to divine channeling. Two of those things were Sacred Geometry and Kundalini serpent energy. These can sometimes carry with them a more male energy in the way they are depicted, as well as since sacred geometry has a left-brained energy to it, but I was feeling very strongly the Divine Feminine wanting to be integrated and empowered. So, while I used these image themes, I took care in presenting them with a very feminine flow and grace, while still maintaining their integrity of power.
The essence of this piece not only carries the ignited and awakened Kundalini life force flowing from cosmic power source through this sacrum portal, but it has many aspects of flowing grace, gentle power, balance, and expansion. I created it all to have a continuous flow throughout and to add some organic movement along with the balance.
In many ways it depicts a celebration of life itself, as well as containing the totality of creative potential of every human being, awakening and regenerating, seen through my client’s sacred vehicle of life.
For some interesting information about the sacrum as a cosmic portal you may enjoy my post: Sacred Bone, Tattoos and Stones: Mayan Portal Mysteries Unraveling.
Alongside Sacred Geometry and Kundalini energy, my client is also drawn to Mayan teachings and because of this I did a subtle depiction of the Mayan feathered serpent for the design (you can see the feathers at top coming from both sides of the serpent). I was getting that subtle rather than very poignant Mayan symbolism was powerful for this particular soul and piece, and to keep things more within the Divine Feminine flow as well.
You can see that the serpent winds itself up and at center creates an infinity symbol, but also continuously flows throughout the energy of this piece, where everything merges and crosses over, together as creating a distinct image, but also is all part of a whole woven and very fluid tapestry, simultaneously.
There is a subtle six pointed star (hexagon) at the bottom that ignites the opening of the portal. As mentioned, the bottom point would lie at the very tail end possible and then the design flows up the sacrum and will go up the lower portion of the back, also supporting all of the lower Chakras, which are just as integral and important for integrating the expression and manifestation of our Divinity.
Then there is the continuous flow felt from the Kundalini energy rising and activating all Chakras, along with the energy of fully opening one’s wings and blossoming into wholeness – reminder of staying grounded while continuing the evolutionary journey in balanced flow.
I feel this piece speaks volumes for itself. It has so many different things that it brings up when I see it, from the organic nature of it that can look like so many various images. I hope you enjoy the energy activation it emanates.
As always, I am honored to be a part of these amazing soul journey partnerships.
