In this gibbous lunar phase, we may falter on our path to the the full moon, fearful of criticism & full of self doubt. It’s time to reach for the strength of our courageous heart, reinforced by past times when heroically we didn’t give up but saw every mistake, fear & doubt as moments of wisdom, courage & determination to fulfill our destiny.
In this first quarter moon phase, we leave behind child-like concerns & embrace our heroic adventurer. Through the meditation our courageous Self grasps & integrates the pillars of physical and spiritual strength, never forgetting the dark Mother Moon is the source of this power: out of the 1 comes the 2, true meaning of the trinity.
Here in the crescent moon, we’re being offered the chance to create magic, planting the seed of an idea brought up from the ocean of possibilities. This seed did not appear out of the blue; it’s presence celebrates our courage to do our own inner work & to flow with the ripples of change that affecting us all at this time.
Here in the dark moon phase, we’re entering the mysterious unknown, closing our physical eyes & mouth – preventing our mind from asking questions – and listening & seeing with our intuitive heart & insightful third eye. This is not new to us; we’ve done it before. We just need to trust our loving soul & those in spirit surrounding us. Then journey with me through the aura of Mother Earth, embracing the profound network of mystery that awaits us.
Within the fading light of the Balsamic moon, we experience grief magnified by the global ‘cocooning.’ We’re leaving behind the old without the new world being in sight. As with any grief, after the initial shock, it’s really important to stay steady as some around us fight to understand or who to blame, trying to pull everyone into their storm of fear & anger. Staying connected to the moon, Mother Earth & our essential core keeps us steady.
Now within the last quarter phase of the moon, we’ve reached a time of harvesting: separating what nurtures our soul (the wheat) from the ‘chaff’ – beliefs & relationships that no longer resonate with our essence. To help us, we use the wisdom, detachment & clarity of discernment from the third eye, releasing any reliance on past judgments (from the solar plexus). Only then can we take control of our lives, choosing the information & thoughts that maintain a sense of balance & strength.
Here, as we merge with the disseminating waning moon, we’re being asked to fertilize our dreams by heeding the call of our future self. But to be able to pass through the eye of the needle or doorway into our future, we must first release any baggage to our past & become innocent or ‘In-no-Sense’ (get out of our minds). Only then can we tap into ‘inner sense’ or our intuition and then open our hearts to our future self embracing them via the meditation at the end of the podcast.
We’ve made it! We’re standing proudly in the light of the full moon, ready to be seen in all our beauty. Follow me in a meditation as we clear our sacred bowls of old energy & then allow ourselves to come together through the moon & shine our lights on those who are living in isolation, fear & darkness. Let’s shine together.
As we approach the full moon, this gibbous waxing moon phase, addresses feelings of worthiness. If there is self-doubt, we may meet unrealistic expectations (our own or others), a yearning to please others, a need to ‘fit in’ or a tendency to compare ourselves with others. Through the meditation, we set ourselves free to shine in our own unique light.
Now merging with the first quarter of the moon, we’re ready to ‘leave home’ & become our own hero. Even though this can be scary, our sense of knowing that this is the right step to reach soul fulfillment, strengthens our resolve. Through the meditation at the end of the podcast, decide what to leave behind & what to take on your journey, helped by your mentors.
From the darkness comes the tender crescent moon. As a young shoot pushes its way through the soil towards the sunlight, we too are filled with enthusiasm to see our dreams become reality. We’re strengthened by the core values collected while in the darkness & the courage to leave behind familial beliefs that don’t serve our future.
Welcome to the mysterious dark moon; a glorious time when we wash or burn away everything that keeps us separate from our true essence. Never before have we been called to do this on a global level but many of us are heeding the call to connect through our root chakra to the eternal source of our creation. Enjoy the meditation.
