Embrace Growth, Not Perfection: Your Energy Review for August 14-20


Hello everyone! It’s that time again for our weekly energy review and deep dive for the dates of August 14th through August 20th. Brace yourselves; we’re about to dive headfirst into this week’s theme: perfection.

Perfection, is that elusive state we’re perpetually striving for yet can’t quite grasp. Ever felt guilt, or perhaps even spoken down to yourself for failing to reach it? The truth is, perfection equals stagnation. As I always tell my clients, the only failure is the failure to grow.

Consider a stagnant, algae-filled swamp, the embodiment of ‘perfection’, versus a moving river or expansive ocean, symbols of growth and evolution. Which do you prefer? As long as we’re growing, learning, and evolving, that’s perfection at its finest.


Perfection, in its lower-density form, emerges from our ego’s fear of being wrong or making a mistake. However, remember, without room to improve, there is no growth. To evolve, we need to dare to step into the unknown, even if it scares our ego. When aligned with our divine aspects, perfection takes on a new meaning—it becomes an ever-evolving creation.

This brings us to our first collective karmic cycle of the week: ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.’ This is a collective belief that prevents us from going all-in, held back by the fear of failure or loss. Yet, every new venture, like learning to walk, involves trial and error. The only failure here is not trying, not growing.

The last collective karmic cycle for this week involves ‘unjustified karma with the energy of lack.’ Essentially, we hesitate to invest our resources for fear of not meeting our expectations. However, staying stuck in this cycle leads nowhere. Real growth and evolution occur when we give ourselves permission to fail, to grow, and to improve.

If you’re struggling with control-driven anxiety, giving yourself this permission to not always get it right can offer immense relief. Remember, growth is a process, and perfection is just an illusion.

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re struggling with any of these themes this week. I’d love to hear what resonates with you. Remember, growth, not perfection, is the key to success.
