MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Saturday, January 28, 2017
MOON IN AQUARIUS
Sometimes it’s time to step back and observe, rather than getting caught up in the emotional mire. Dust off your Spock ears and put on your logical, rational, reasonable hat. There’s a time for everything, and now is the time to detach emotionally, if only temporarily, to get the lay of the land and a broader, unbiased view. If we never step back we can’t get a clean, clear perspective. When we do, we begin to see and feel things in ways we never expected. Expectations? Highly overrated.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I am willing to step away from my emotional expectations and habits in order to get a clean, clear perspective. I am free and open.

HOW TO MEDITATE WITH THE MOON
Using these simple Moon thoughts are a wonderful way to begin a daily meditation practice that keeps you focused on, and grounded in, the emotional energy of the Cosmos each and every day.
You can do a very simple 8/4 count meditation, which means you settle into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and breathe in to a slow count of 8, hold it for 4 counts, and then breathe out for a slow count of 8. Hold your breath again for 4 counts before breathing in again. On the in-breath recite a word or phrase from the Moon Meditation in your mind, focusing on that energy and holding it, and then consciously release that same energy out into the world on the out-breath. Then begin the process again on the in-breath, either using the same word/phrase you’re working with (until it feels comfortable and “right”) or move on to the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.
