MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Friday, February 10, 2017

 
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO
Eclipses intensify the energy of the moment and open a portal to some type of emotional transformation. Today’s eclipse illuminates your need to balance standing back objectively, with fully participating and engaging; logic with instinct; the demands of the ego with the desires of the heart. This Moon enlightens you toward understanding that the way to freedom is by springing from the structures that ground and support you, while breaking free of the structures that limit and deny you. This full moon shines awareness on building a foundation of wisdom to stand upon firmly as you reach toward being uniquely who you are… it asks you to combine the conventional with the unconventional – to integrate integrity with the energy of the catalyst. How do you live both? The solution is found via your heart – through generosity of spirit and being willing to take a risk. Create from that place of the unrestrained joy of a child, and live from the certainty that comes with tapping the wisdom of the time-tested. Step back when necessary to gain an objective perspective, but remember to come back into fully engaged participation.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I know which of my structures are sound and true and wise, and which are based on fear and denial. I create and participate joyously and from love because I am grounded in strength and wisdom. I am liberated from old constrictions and free to live my unique purpose. I am in right timing with both my objectivity and my participation.

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.
