10 Things To Expect From The Lion's Gate Portal

A Portal Has Opened...

Early this week, on Monday morning to be precise- during my morning meditation, I received an interesting message from my guides... they told me that the veil between worlds had dropped and a portal was opened. Now seeing as though I don't usually received messages about portals, it struck me as rather strange and quite frankly a one off. I didn't give it too much thought. I shook my head and moved on with my day. Fast forward a few days, I learned the Lions Gate Portal (also known as the 88 portal) was opened on July 26th. This was news to me. Now, I had heard of this portal before but I was under the misconception that it only occurred on August 8th.... I clearly, was incorrect. The energy reaches its peak at this time but the portal itself, is open from the July 26th to the 12th of August. Upon learning this information, I looked at my calendar- to my surprise July 26th was Monday.... the day my guides told me that a portal was opened!!! I was stunned!! I'm telling you, you cannot make this shit up!


So what is it exactly? This occurs every year when the sun is in the sign of Leo and the star of Sirius is moving closer to earth, culminating to actually being seen in the sky on the 8th of August. This particular alignment in the cosmos results in massive energy coming to us from the universe. This energy is very intense and high vibrational and not only affects out physical bodies but also our spiritual, energetic bodies as well.

Because the peak of this energy occurs on August 8th - or 8/8, it is sometimes referred to as the 88 portal. What is the significance of this? In numerology, the number 8 is associated with money, power and abundance. It is the number of manifestation. 8/8 is considered to be a very lucky time. It is particularly prudent to pay attention to your thoughts not only on this day, but the entire time the portal is activated. Manifestation powers are boosted right now, so it is imperative you remember: what you think about, you bring about. So what are your thoughts telling you right now? Are they positive messages of abundance and empowerment? Or are they messages of lack, fear and defeat?


You may find that carrying a thought journal at this time would be very helpful. Set a timer to go off at the same time every hour and check in with your thoughts and moods. If they are mainly negative thoughts, it will remind you to switch your thoughts away from the negative and into the positive. This also helps train your mind to do this on the daily, not just during this particular energetic time period.

Leo is ruled by the sun, so when the sun is in the sign of Leo during this Leo season, it tends to result in feeling bolder, stronger and more confident. Now is the time to BE SEEN. the star of Sirius is quite often referred to as the "Spiritual Sun", and very much illuminates and sheds light on our soul's truth and enhances authenticity. We become more aligned with our truth and are able to show more of who we truly are. This spiritual sun is giving life to our spiritual and energetic selves, just as the sun is giving life to our physical bodies. It is during this time that should we want to, it is easier to access higher realms of consciousness.


There are several major activations and objectives that occur during the time that this portal is open. We will examine some of them here:

1) Heart Healings and Chakra activations- An enhanced feeling of love and the release of fear can be expected during this time. Old wounds may resurface and old memories come to light. However, because the heart chakra is activated and open during this time, you are better equipped to deal with these as they surface. You are able to accept and heal from this past hurts and close the cycles that they perpetuate in your every day life resulting in more inner peace and self love.

2) Increased Manifestation & Abundance- because of the numerology associated to this portal, manifestation and abundance get a boost. Your manifestations come to you quicker than normal. It is added a ton of energy to your intention and thoughts. This is why it is so important to track your thoughts!! If you are thinking about how little money you have, how unhealthy your life is etc.... well... your wish is the Universe's command. Pay attention to what you are asking for...

3) Clearing out Negativity- You may find yourself ready to finally rid yourself of the negative aspects in your life that are no longer serving you. This can be in the form of people, places, things, thought patterns or conditioning. It's time to clean house so to speak. You may find yourself pulling away from certain people in your life. Removing yourself from the office gossip, with less of an urge to engage in low vibrational activities. It is an excellent time to clear out your energetic space and your aura. Book yourself an energy healing session and clear out the toxic junk from your energetic body!

4) Transformation - With the DNA activations and light codes that are currently being beamed to earth from the cosmos, accelerated transformation is certainly to be expected. The shift into the love frequency versus that of fear can result in ego death and releasing of conditioning and belief systems that do not serve us. This release may make you feel like a completely different person. Friends and family may notice and begin to comment on this transformation.

5) Sleep Interruptions- As previously stated, light codes, DNA upgrades and downloads are being integrated into our consciousness right now. This happens a lot during sleeping hours as this is when our subconscious mind runs the show and isn't fought as hard as it is during waking hours when the limited conscious mind is in charge. Because of the information received, you may find yourself waking up several times in the night and having a hard time going back to sleep. Or, you may find that when you wake up after 7 hours of sleep, it doesn't feel like you've slept a wink.

6) Third Eye Activations- Your intuition gets a major boost right now! You may find yourself developing new intuitive gifts. (Think the clairs- clairaudience, clairsentience etc.) Also, the gifts that you had previously might become more intense and stronger. Spiritual knowledge and downloads allow you to just know things and understand them. Higher consciousness is achieved and unlocked during this time, and the heart opens and expands.

7)Visitations From Other Realms- Some will experience vivid dreams of deceased loved ones... they are delivering important messages to you. Keep a dream journal beside your bed to jot down any information they may tell you. Meditations are heightened right now as well. Contact with spirit guides, ancestors and other beings from other realms of consciousness is much easier now as the veil is lifted and the energetic portal is opened allowing us to access the other worlds without much restriction or interference.

8) Profound Sense of Inner Peace- Because we are able to tap into our inner connection with self easily and more deeply, our authentic self begins to shine through. More importantly, we LET it shine through... therefore a profound sense of calm and inner peace sweeps over us- making us feel secure and safe.

9) Inner Truths Are Revealed- the "Spiritual Sun" of Sirius shines a light on our inner truths... who we really are. What our true belief systems are begin to come to the surface. Release of fear of being judged falls away. We are left with a sense of true self. Of deepest authenticity. You can finally feel closer to KNOWING YOURSELF.

10) Heightened Creativity- Expect boosts in creativity! Inspiration strikes! It is an excellent time to get new creative projects off the ground. When inspiration strikes, run with it! Trust your gut and play!!

Which of these are you feeling right now? What energy would you say you are tapped into the most? Which of these are you looking forward to the most and why? Let me know!

It needs to be mentioned, that there is more happening on August 8th than just the peak of the portal's energy.... the NEW MOON IN LEO also occurs that night lending more power to this astrological event!

As I have stated in a blog a couple of posts back, new moons are for new projects. It is also referred to as the Dark Moon- so it is a perfect time for quiet reflection and meditation. New moons historically are a time for setting intention for new projects... for manifestations and overall goals. This energy combined with the numerology and power from the 8/8 portal ensures a powerful and poignant outcome if you choose to work with the gifts this energy is bringing to you!

Wow! This is particularly interesting to me this year. We listed our house on July 26th. It sold in 9 hours flat, at 23% over list price! Can I be so bold as to contribute that nice piece of luck to the opening of the portal?

I've never paid attention to this in the past, but maybe it's time I did!
