The Spiritual Day of Motivation
July 31 is the Spiritual Day of Motivation. It is extremely difficult to get July 31 people to do something toward which they are not personally motivated. If this is your birthday or if you resonate with today’s energy then those born on this day are usually of two types, introvert or extrovert, both of whom have highly personal goals. Their world is indeed a private one to which few are admitted.
More introverted people born on this day will most often manifest a lifestyle in which they stick close to home (often working out of their own house). Their lives are so well circumscribed that favorite haunts are basically just an extension of the home situation – safe, secure, known.
More extroverted people born on this day may appear to be mild-mannered until they reveal themselves in a performance situation. Here they must be careful that their flamboyance does not get out of control.
The number 31 breaks down to the number 4 (3+1=4).
Number Four = Sweet Soulfulness
It is time to keep moving forward as you strive to achieve your hopes and dreams - because despite your current challenges, success is well within your reach. You are never given more than you can handle, and you have the strength and ability to make it through... so face your challenges head-on with determination, courage, and faith. With perseverance and faith you can make your dreams come true.
Today, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and sip it slowly. Allow the warmth and sweetness to nourish your body and soul. What is called for now is to step back and take your focus off of your life and your troubles. You'll be surprised by how things sort themselves out once you've replenished your energy by means of a much needed rest and time-out. What does this nourishment mean to you? How can you nourish and nurture yourself more?
Write It Down and
Speak It Into Existence
Get some paper and a pen, put your feet up and allow your creativity to flow. Write down ten nourishing things you can do for yourself in the next week, and do them. Say, "Divine Intelligence, please awaken the sweetness and soulfulness inside me so I can truly nourish and love myself."

July 31 and Hope Activation
Choose an affirmation and repeat several times daily, or during meditation.
- No matter what I am going through, there is always hope.
- Hope lights my way forward.
- I believe in the power of hope to keep me strong and happy.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Release any areas of tension in your body with your exhalations. Think about hopes you have in your life, even if they feel unattainable. If you have hope, you have potential and possibility. State each hope, and feel the emotion of what it would be like if it were true. Then imagine tying this hope onto a balloon and releasing it into the sky, knowing that a greater power is taking care of it.
