Where has the summer gone?

September should focus on finishing those uncompleted tasks rectifying and improving your current situation because we all need self-improvement. So, find some uninterrupted time to search within, look at who you are now, take note of what still needs healing, and most of all, find forgiveness in your heart for yourself and others.

We should also take time to put ourselves in another person’s shoes rather than being overly judgmental. In doing so, you will relinquish your selfishness and move closer to recognizing the universal love that encompasses us and everything around us. Self-tune yourself to the world and usher in love and healing. This is the core meaning of the number nine, and September is the ninth month of the year, symbolizing a spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and the fulfillment of our divine purpose. September also marks the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one.

Let your September revolve around service, responsibility, and self-sacrifice. We will now witness our summer fade and autumn begin, a cycle of life and death in nature. So, let us encourage one another to let go of the old and welcome in the new, both in our external environment and within ourselves.

September comes from the Latin root septem-, meaning “seven,” because, in the original Roman republican calendar, September was the seventh month of the year rather than the ninth. The Roman calendar was only ten months long and included the following months: Martius, Aprilis, Maius, Junius, Quintilis, Sextilis, September, October, November, and December ....... ✌

Always with love,
