Full Moon Release August 2012

There will be two full moons this month–August 1 and August 31.  For those of you who aren’t aware, the time of the full moon is the time to release those things that are holding you back and (hopefully) gently allow in those things that will better serve us in our lives.  When there are two full moons within one month, as happens occasionally due to the 13 moons in the year and the 12 calendar months, this energy is amplified.

June 2012 Full Moon

There are several ways to release.  It is best to do these things either on the day of the full moon or within a day or so before or after when the energies are strongest.

  1. Determine what you want to release.  This can be unhealthy attachments to people, places, things, past events, and emotional connections that are draining you.
  2. Honor your resistance.  You are attached to these things for a reason.  They give you comfort.  You might not WANT to give them up, but you know it is best for you.  So as to honor your truest self, you decide to release these things to allow yourself to move forward.
  3. Write them down.  Make a list.  Make it concrete on paper so you can see it in black and white.  This is a true radical acceptance of those things that you feel you can’t change and want to give up to the divine for transmutation.
  4. Destroy the paper.  I know that sounds rather drastic, but since the paper is a symbolic representation of those things you wish to release, you need to thoroughly destroy the paper.  There are several ways to do this.  You can tear up the paper.  You can shred the paper.  You can “drown” the paper in a bowl of water or flush it down the toilet after tearing it up into small pieces.  Or you can burn it in a fireproof container.  I prefer to burn it and usually do this in my metal singing bowl.  This reminds me of the way in which native peoples burned herbs to carry their prayers up to Heaven.  I feel that it serves the same purpose.
  5. Repeat the ceremony at the next full moon.

The time of the Full Moon is an emotional time for us all.  Performing this exercise may lead to emotional outbursts and crying.  It is best to do it either when you are alone or in a circle of close supportive friends who will all be participating.  You want to be gentle with yourself while at the same time remaining strong and committed to making positive changes in your life.  And so it is.

The Road to Success Day 32

When I committed to myself 32 days ago, I decided to distance myself from those things that were leading to worry and unhappiness in my life. Detachment from concerns of the world has led me to focus on more important issues.  Instead of giving my time and energy to worries and doubt, I devote myself to making myself a better person in all respects.  I have no need to prove myself to the world.

Anything that seems to be related to lack is no longer a part of my consciousness.  Focusing on these illusions lowers my vibration so that I am not able to see the light within and around me.  I open up to seeing the light in everyone and everything around me.  It is there.  With knowing and intent, I find it.

I release and cut energetic cords to those people, places, and circumstances that no longer serve me.  I am a light in the world, and my light is dimmed when I allow others to siphon it for their own benefit.  I give freely to others when I feel guided, but in the ordinary course of my daily life, I keep my energy separate from those around me.

The Road to Success Day 24

I cannot say that I don’t know what my heart’s true desire really is because my heart knows.  In fact, whether I’m consciously aware of it or not, my heart is already acting on its deepest desires.  I can try to hide it from myself and others by ignoring the guidance from within, but if I do that I am blocking the truest expression of my soul.

Right now, I commit to following my guidance.  I choose not to second guess every decision.  I know this is for my highest good and the good of those around me.  It might seem difficult now, but in time, it will become second nature to express my deep needs and desires outwardly.
