Hands forming heart with beach in background and the words Show Yourself Some LoveAhhh, it’s June and the essence of love is in the air.

Perhaps it’s because June is a 6 vibration month and all about LOVE.

Not only romantic love or love for a partner…

but also love in a broader sense: family, circle of friends, community, the world.

And boy could we all use some extra doses of love!

Everywhere you look people are trying to knock other people down… or so the news (and Facebook feeds) would have you believe.

What if that is only a small segment of the world though?

If you see or hear a negative story, this month I suggest starting a new habit… sending love into it (instead of buying into the fear).

Not just for the person or animal you perceive to be the victim, but also for everyone else involved.

What if every act of hate, bullying or disruptive behavior was really a cry (or scream) for love.

A desperate need for love to be shown them, given to them.

A need for someone to see past the darkness and see the person in pain.

Send them love.

If you fall into judgement, then send yourself some love too!


In my own practice and among family, friends and people I come in contact with, I see a profound lack of self-love at the heart of many of their issues. 


So this month, instead of fixating on receiving love from someone else or showering others with love, start with you.

Show Yourself Some Love!


We’re in a 1 – year, the start of a new 9-year cycle. The 1 vibration, in part, is about individuality - you, owning your unique identity, being true to you.

The best place to start is with self-love and honoring yourself.

This is being self-focused in a healthy way.

Be there for you, show up for you, and be supportive of you… instead of beating yourself up or knocking yourself down.

Respond to those mean voices in your head with a dose of self-love.

The love message of June’s 6 vibration working with the 1 vibration of 2017 is urging you to focus that love light on you.

When you give love to yourself, you have so much more you can give to others.

But first give love to yourself. (for reals! you can do this!)

What can you do each day to show yourself some love?


Love, acceptance and creativity… the Gift of the 6 Vibration

According to numerology, June is a 6 vibration.

In addition to teaching us about Love, the 6 vibration is also about Creativity, Harmony, Peace, Money, Beauty, Responsibility, Acceptance, Family, Community, and Service.

Yes! The 6 is also a money number. The combination of love and creativity are attractive to the energy of money. (cool, huh!?!)

Another part of the 6 vibration is giving and receiving without strings attached.


Here's my video about the energy of June and some additional thoughts and tips and heaping does of love for you. It's short, maybe 10 minutes.


For 2017, we are working with the 1-vibration of new beginnings, creation, individuality, ideas, leadership, innovation and organization all year long.

In May the 5-vibration was urging you to make some changes to support who you want to be and what you really want in your life. 

Now June brings in more mojo in the love, peace and creativity departments.

If your life feels lopsided and your plans and dreams capsized due to unforeseen turbulence, this is the month to love yourself in spite of whatever is going on in your world.

Then look at creative and practical ways to restore balance and harmony in your life… within yourself.

Remember, you can’t restore peace and harmony to someone else’s world. Only they can do that.

You can send them love however, and hold space for them as they sit in the churn.


Some ways the 6 (June) and 1 (2017) vibrations may show up for you this month are:


Love who you are where you are.

This is huge!

Love who you are and where you are.

This requires that you accept who you are and where you are, instead of resisting it, fighting it, or wishing you were someone else, better somehow or in a better place.

It also requires that you let go of any judgements over who you are and where you are.

So simple, not so easy.

Yep. I know. I, too, struggle with this from time to time.


Partner/Romantic Love: If you are yearning for love or a soul-mate, the first place to look is in the mirror.

Start by giving that love to yourself first. Really take a good look at how you treat yourself.

  • Are you treating yourself with love? Or are you being unkind and harsh with yourself?
  • Are you doing things for others in the hope that they will like or love you in return?

  • Are you over-giving to the point of depletion and then resentment?

  • Are you eating well, getting enough sleep, allowing yourself time to relax and dream?


Community/Tribe/Family Love: You may feel a call to connect with likeminded people, to feel part of a tribe or community.

Last year (the 9 vibration of re-evaluating what works and letting go of what doesn’t) may have shown you that your community/tribe no longer fits you or that your family can no longer give you the emotional support you need.

  • What kind of people would inspire you? Where might you find people like this? Go there!
  • If you are searching for a tribe to belong to, maybe the message is for you to create your own tribe! The 1 vibration supports you in this.

  • What simple creative measures can you take to improve your experiences at home and with others?



Both the 6 (June and the 1 (2017) support and promote creativity across the board.

Create with fun and passion… without judgment or comparison.

  • Your creative expression is a way to connect to your true self, reconnect with your inner child and your innocence, tap into joy and channel some love energy into your work.

  • Creativity also opens the money flow. Allowing yourself to joyfully create makes you more magnetically attractive to the energy of money.

  • So go create something… and yes it’s ok to make bad art or make a mess! The important thing is you expressing you in a way that you enjoy, is fun, and promotes moments of unrestrained delight.



Self-love requires strong boundaries. (Not walls to protect your heart, but boundaries to honor you and support you. There's a difference.)

  • Notice where your boundaries are weak or non-existent and start making some changes there.

  • Boundaries are an act of self-love and self-respect.

  • By enforcing your boundaries you not only show yourself love, but you also help others begin to pay attention to their own boundary issues.



Many of my readers are life-long givers. They just love to give. Feel weird about the whole receiving bit though.

Are you one of those super-givers, over-givers, give at all costs kind of person?

If so, please stop it.

There is no gold star for giving and refusing (consciously or unconsciously) to receive.

Giving is one half of the equation: giving and receiving.

The 6 holds the giving and receiving in balance.

When it is out of balance the system stumbles and may grind to a halt.

This month the 1 vibration helps you in the receiving department.

While the 6 vibration helps you become aware of your patterns around giving and receiving… and the need for love that is behind it.

  • Where are you over-giving? Why? What do you hope to gain by this?

  • Where do reject receiving? Why do you feel you do this?

  • If you are a terrible receiver, this month practice receiving. Let someone else treat. Ask for help (and accept it graciously!).

  • If you love to receive but don’t give freely, practice giving with no strings attached. Volunteer your time for a cause you support, invite a friend for lunch or coffee.


And yes, the 6 vibration also has a Shadow Side!

Shadow aspects of the 6 vibration that will be amplified by the shadow aspects of the 1 are:

Jealousy, self-centeredness, vanity, selfishness (in an egotistical way), extravagance, self-righteousness, picky/critical, condescending, wastefulness, manipulation

Other shadow aspects that might pop up for you this month:

Over-giving to depletion, being the martyr, self-pity, meddling/rescuing/fixing (because you believe you know better), nagging, feeling unfulfilled or going to extremes, creatively blocked

Many of these are really a call for love and acceptance.


If you slip into the shadow of the 6, take the opportunity to pause and check in with yourself.

Place you hand on your heart, to remind you to drop back into heart-space and be present.

(We are often in living in the past or projecting into the future when we fall into the shadow.) 

Next take 3 slow, deep breaths and ask one or more of these questions:

“What is really going on here?”

“What is the pain or lack or fear that is causing me to feel this way?”

“Where am ignoring my boundaries?”

“Where do I feel unloved, unseen, unheard, misunderstood, or judged?”

“What do I really need in this moment?”

“What does my inner child need right now to feel safe and loved?”

Listen to what message or thoughts pop in with these questions.

They may contain true answers or show you a negative line of thinking that is causing the issue.

Sometimes just asking the question begins to shift things.

Your answers can come later in a sign or symbol or song or other message delivery system.


Angelic Helpers:

You can call on your angels and guides to help you with this as well.

  • I call on Archangel Gabriel for clarity and courage

  • I call on Archangel Uriel to help me see the underlying reason; “illuminate what I don’t see yet”

  • I call on Archangel Chamuel whenever the issues of love and acceptance show up. Ask him to surround you in his pink light of unconditional love to help you to learn to love and accept yourself in a gentle way and to give and receive more love and acceptance in your life.


And for those of you who love to journal or ask questions that can open the door to insights…  here are a few more questions for you to play with:

  • Where are you rejecting love, denying love, refusing love, restricting love, needing love?

  • How do you block receiving love? What thoughts or nasty self-talk do you use to beat yourself up?

  • Where and when do feel out of alignment with the energy of love?

  • How can you show yourself more love?

  • How can you apply more love to a situation?

  • What are you refusing to accept about yourself, your life, your relationships, your situation? Why? What are you holding onto that would truly benefit you to finally let it the fuck go?

  • What creative expression can you play with this month?

  • What’s your relationship with money? How can you become better friends?

  • Do you take responsibility for yourself, your thoughts and your actions?

  • Do you take responsibility for everyone else in your life too?

  • Where are you over-giving? What do you hope to get by doing so (there is always a payoff you’re hoping for!)?

  • What simple things can you put in place this month to consistently show more love to yourself?


June’s energy is helping you allow more love and acceptance into your life.

Show yourself some love, in whatever way you need.

Leave yourself love notes.

Say nice things to yourself.

Give yourself time for self-care and R&R.

Create a cheat sheet of 5 to 10 things you can do to show yourself some love, then when you feel stuck in the yuck, pick one of those things and do it!

Show the world some love too while you are at it!

My love and blessings and deep appreciation,
