Solstice, Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse

This month the Winter Solstice, full moon, and total lunar eclipse will all be occurring on the same day.  This is a time of very powerful energies for all of us.  I have been feeling major shifts in energy for the past month or so.  It feels as if a new world is about to be birthed, and we are all a part of that.  

December 19, 2010

The Full Moon is the perfect time for releasing that which no longer serves you.  The Full Moon will coincide with a total lunar eclipse on December 21, 2010, the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.  I took a photograph of the moon two days before when it was 98% full.  What you may not know is that the energies of the Full Moon are often powerful for three days before or after, so if you plan on doing ceremony, it does not have to be at the precise time of the Full Moon.  This part of the lunar cycle is the perfect time to release anything that you feel is holding you back from becoming what you most want to be.  A very simple ceremony you can do for yourself is to take some time to meditate on what you need to release.  When you are able to articulate it, write it down on a piece of paper.  Putting the words on paper will make them more real for you than just going over them repeatedly in your mind.  If you can safely burn the paper, that is the best way to release the things you have not had the courage to release until now.  You can use your fireplace, a candle flame, or a bonfire!  The flame transmutes the energies.  You can also just tear up the paper and recycle it!  And, of course, have an idea of what you would like to bring into your life because you can be sure that once you release what has been holding you back, it will create a void that needs to be filled with wonderful things that are good for you! 

Moon on Dec. 19, 2010

Eclipses are times of significant change in our lives.  This eclipse seems to have been giving us some warning signs to prepare.  In our personal lives and world affairs, events have been manifesting at a much faster rate–or perhaps we just perceive them that way.  But then again, perception is everything.  This particular eclipse is going to occur in the middle of the night on the East Coast.  It is worth going outside to see it.  It looks like 1:30-2:45 a.m. EST may be the best time to see the Moon swallowed by the shadow of the Earth.   

98% Full Moon Dec. 19, 2010

The Winter Solstice is a special time.  The hours of daylight have been getting shorter and shorter.  At 2 p.m., it already looks like late afternoon, and the Sun has usually gone down by around 4 p.m.  As human beings, we tend to thrive in sunlight just as plants do.  We feel a need to hibernate as daylight grows shorter.  The Solstice marks a day of change, the day when hours of daylight almost imperceptively grow longer.  At first, we may not even notice it, but gradually we find ourselves growing more energetic.  The energy is building slowly towards spring.  We store up energy until one day we cannot hold back our joy.  Use this special time to celebrate life.

I Can’t Be Like Them

Filed under: authenticity — by cawritergirl @ 8:25 PM

Last Night, I attended a Green Career Networking event about an hour + away from where I live.  It caught my attention.  It sounded interesting.  I am really and truly interested in sustainability for us and the earth.  There is a course available for some through the unemployment office which is a Green Careers Certificate program.  It sounds more like a how to choose the right job for you and interview for it type of thing more than a training. 

The event was held at a Hyatt Regency hotel, very nice.  There were maybe 10-12 people there.  They had us all introduce ourselves.  There were two types of people.  One type was currently looking for a job.  The other type was supremely unsatisfied with their current life.  So, you’re already starting off at a lower vibration than you want to. 

After this brief introduction, they had us “network” which really means to just start talking randomly to whoever is in front of you.  So, I start talking to this one guy who gave a webinar earlier in the day about “preparing for your interview.”  I told him that I didn’t prepare at all for the phone interview and was told that I was in the top two and called back the next day to come in for an interview.  He was so blocked up by what he believes that he couldn’t even hear what I was saying!  He started saying that people will tell you anything and then not call you back.  I explained that they DID call me back.  He was arguing with me that I have to spend all this time “rehearsing” my answers to imaginary questions. 

Maybe that’s why all these people are still looking–because they are listening to people like him.  Doesn’t he know that people can tell when you’re giving them a  line?  Maybe not.

Then–and I believe this is the reason I was at the event–near the end I sat next to this older woman.  She was talking about how there are no jobs available in her field and what a hard time she is having.  I asked if she took this certificate program and she said no.  She told me she had taken a  “green purchasing” certificate.  As she was telling me about it, she got so excited saying that she learned so much.  I just looked at her and said, you have so much knowledge and experience in this field, have you considered starting your own consulting firm in which you “outsource” the purchasing department for companies that don’t have one.  She looked at me and said that no she had never thought about it and it sounded like a good idea.  I sincerely hope that she does look into it. 

These people are so downtrodden that they don’t even see possibilities that are right in front of their faces.  She has everything she needs to support herself and her family and is letting that go by because she is caught up in the “I’m unemployed” mentality that doesn’t help anyone. 

I don’t believe that this group is really helping anything.  It feels like they are more perpetuating the “everything is horrible” feeling that has taken over lots of people. 

These people need to be exposed to good vibes.  ALL people need to be exposed to good vibes.  These groups are more like support groups that encourage you in your complaints and fear and give places for people to congregate and commiserate about their negativity.  People seem to have lost their imagination.  We need to keep ours alive.

Search Engine Optimization for your Spiritual Website

If you are clueless about where to start with optimizing your website, I can help.  I’ve been doing this for seven months and can offer assistance.  It is important to use the right keywords in both your text on your site and in keywords and meta keywords (if your webhost supports this).  Certain keywords are overused and result in you competing with big name companies.  In other words, you can’t compete, and you website might be on the fifth or sixth page of search results, if it can be found at all.  You want to use the correct keywords so that the people who you can help the most can find you! 

When you send me a message to express interest, send me a link to your site, and I will take a look to determine how long I think it will take to evaluate your website and give you a quote based on that.  Prices will be based on number of pages, complexity, number of modalities offered, etc.  Keep in mind that the more modalities you offer, the longer it will take to optimize.  It is also important to note that results will vary, and it may take some time to notice any increased traffic to your site.  You may want to have the website re-evaluated 3-6 months after performing the initial  optimization. 

All paid services will include having your link listed on both my blog ( and website (  We can all help each other in this way. 

Prices start at $100 USD.  I will need access to your website to edit text for keywords and potentially for clarity based on the most advantageous keywords for you.  Email me at for more specific information relating to how I can help you.
