MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Wednesday, February 1, 2017

 
MOON IN ARIES
The collective emotional current is spontaneous, exciting, and forward pushing – willing to act and to take a risk. Things can feel erratic, ungrounded, and perhaps primed for a fight, or an adventure. Emotional reactiveness is possible, so be sure to inject some logic and reason into the environment. There are opportunities to be created through actions of courage for the greater good.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I respond with courage and foresight for the collective of which I am a unique and inspired part.

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.

MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, January 31

MOON IN PISCES THEN ARIES
Use the impetus of challenge to broaden your perspective of empathy, compassion, and grace. Act on your ideals of love, beauty, and togetherness from the basis of the reality of the moment, and be willing to respond authentically to any hurdles in personal relationship or challenges to your will. Objections from loved ones can be true learning opportunities and fertile ground for emotional growth and strengthened bonds.

WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I am strongest when I show my vulnerability. I am authentic when I respond from love rather than fear.

MEDITATING WTH THE MOON – Monday, January 30, 2017

MOON IN PISCES
The energy at large is one of pulling away from the illusion – pulling wide the curtain – toward a possibly bitter reality, or long-standing wound. If the edges have been blurred (purposefully or through persuasion), or disillusion has been your companion, there is an opportunity today to move deeply into compassion, firmly toward spiritual guidance, and come starkly clean.

WORDS FOR MEDITATION
Transformation in thinking is the key to transformation in feeling.

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.
