GET TO WORK

June's full moon in Sagittarius will be bringing blessings and lessons simultaneously. Saturn, the taskmaster, is copiloting the celestial skies during this full moon bringing our attention to what we need to focus on in order to reach our highest destinies. Whatever karmic lessons we have not yet learned, will be surfacing to guide us to our ultimate destination. However, it will be done with ease and grace as the energies surrounding this transition are gentle. What chapters in your life do you need to close in order to open new doors? Where have you been slacking off and how can you apply yourself more in order to live your highest truth?

Sagittarius energy is expansive and optimistic and urges us to dream with big intentions for the future. Take some time tonight to meditate on the future that you would like to create for yourself as you will be supported by the lucky archer. So get set, ready and aim at the stars. Write down a piece of paper what you would like to bring into your life and let it bathe in the moon's light overnight. May you be blessed with love, joy and abundance. Happy full moon to all. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿนโœจ

ALKALINE POWER GREEN SOUP

FullSizeRender.jpg

One of the fastest to alkalize your body is by loading up on greens. An alkaline body is resistant to all kinds of illness from common colds to cancer. The big C can only thrive and grow and in an acidic body which is created by over consumption of meats, toxic and processed foods.ย  While the amount of greens required to bring a body back to alkaline state may be hard to consume in plain form, soups and juices allow for more intake and digestion when blended. I love soups and can have them everyday even in the heat of summer. Soups are one of the best ways to enrich your diet and bring your body to an alkaline healthy state. This particular soup is not only highly alkaline but also rich in protein, calcium and antioxidants.

Enjoy ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ

HEAL THE WORLD

FullSizeRender.jpg

Despite what chaos is happening in the world, we have the wisdom within us to heal ourselves & the planet. Sadness & despair, while easy in such circumstances, serves nothing. Instead, use the energy to transcend these unthinkable atrocities & catalyze your grief into a powerful agent of change & healing the world.

This is part of the beautiful Twin Heart Meditation by Master Chao Ko Sui for universal consciousness. Even a 5 minute practice can help shift your energy & thereby affecting change on the whole planet. Sit in easy pose with legs crossed & spine straight. Breathe in & out long and deep for a couple of minutes. To activate your heart energy center, press the center of your chest & concentrate on it for a few seconds. Now recall the most pleasant feeling that you have ever experienced in your entire life. For example, a feeling of love, of kindness, peace & joy. You may have felt this when you have given yourself in service to others, or shared yourself with your friends, or when you look at your animals, children or, maybe when you fell in love. You are now going to share this feeling of kindness with the entire planet earth. Visualize in front of your chest a small planet earth, as small as a ball one inch in diameter. Imagine the pinkish light from the heart energy center going to the earth and enveloping it with love & kindness & bless all the needy people on earth with a new hope for a better world. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŽ

Smile at this planet earth and mentally say this prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi:

ย 

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace!

Where there is hatred, I may bring love.

Where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness.

Where there is discord, I may bring harmony.

Where there is error, I may bring truth.

Where there is doubt, I may bring faith.

Where there is despair, I may bring hope.

Where there are shadows, I may bring light.

Where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted.

To understand, than to be understood.

To love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

~ St. Francis Assisi

MIND CREATES MATTER

FullSizeRender.jpg

The New Moon in Gemini happens to be the strongest super moon of the year, therefore it holds a great deal power for positive change and transformation in our lives. It's aim is to guide us to specifically focus on our thoughts and how we have been communicating to ourselves, to others and to the world.

Every thought, positive or negative, has the power to manifest in our lives. As soon as a thought is sent out into the field it has a live vibrational energy that is set into motion. Our negative self talk or ruminations also have the same properties creating self fulfilling procephies that we did not intend to manifest.

Mastering the negative mind and connecting to neutrality is the key to happiness and abundance and the mastery of life. During this powerful and fertile time of the moon, I find it helpful to reprogram the mind with mantras and meditations to clear the subconsicous of negative thought flow and sow seeds of positive and life affirming energies.

A powerful mantra to chant is Ong Sohung which affirms that you are one with all that is and connects you back to your powers. The negative mind has a strong sense of longing to belong, and this manra will help soothe and create a deep connected relationship. It is the mantra of belonging. My favorite version is by Snatam Kaur.

Additinally for an easy and super clearing meditation to conquer the negative mind check out the meditation below given by Yogi Bhajan:

 

MEDITATION FOR THE NEGATIVE MIND

Sit in easy cross-legged pose. Make a cup with your two hands with palms facing up. The right hand will be resting on top of the left and the fingers will cross over each other. Bring this open cup at the level of the heart center. Elbows will be relaxed at your side and eyes slightly open looking down into the hands.

Inhale deeply in long steady stroke though the nostril and exhale through rounded lips through the mouth. You should feel your breath go over the hands. Allow any negative thought, rumination or obssession that is persistently distracting to come to your mind as you breathe. Consciously see the thought forms being released as you exhale.

Continue for 11 to 31 minutes. At the end, inhale deep, then exhale completely and suspend the breath out as you lock in the navel point. Tighten your fully body for a few seconds and then powerfully exhale. Repeat this last step 3 times.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

New Moon blessings to all ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ’–โœจ๐Ÿ™

CLEAR THE PAST

FullSizeRender.jpg

This new moon in Taurus will help us all slow down a bit more, get grounded and breathe. There are lots of retrogrades still in the skies and they are there to pull back the reigns when we collectively skip over some lessons without fully understanding their purpose. This is the time to be more reflective and methodical in your life and re-examining the past to fully learn the lessons and healing. โœจ

Taurus energy is slow and planning to create more security and stability for the long haul. Don't rush into any decisions, plans or try to hurry to the finish line. The celestial energies are urging us to find roots instead of wings in these weeks ahead. The past is coming up to be reexamined, forgiven, healed and put behind you. Take the time to close the chapters that no longer belong in your life so that you can have a fresh start with the new moon energy. A great ceremony to have around this time is to write down and burn all that you would like to give to the universe to absolve for you specifically energetic cords that bind us to past relationships. โœจ

We form energetic cords that keep us connected to all of our past relationships especially the ones that were traumatic. The cords can still remain in our heart centers keeping us bound to lower vibrations of fear, betrayal and abandonment that we carry into our subsequent relationships and thus unknowingly continuing the cycle. Tonight create a scared space for yourself, call in your guides and angels (Archangel Michael is a great one to call in for this ceremony) and simply write down "I now cut and release all cords that bind me psychically, emotionally, or energetically to (name of person)". Then burn the piece of paper under the dark moon. It helps to visualize the cords being cut by physically moving your arms cutting the cords in front of your energy centers focusing on heart, throat, naval and sacral centers primarily. โœจ

Please note, simply cutting cords is not enough without also being aware of the emotional pattern contained within the cord. So take the time to fully understand it, replace it with the energetic vibrations of unconditional love, light and compassion. Whenever we release something we need to fill the space with something positive in order to not be corded again by different people.ย  May this new moon pave the way for new blessings, clear hearts and loving relationships ๐Ÿ’–โœจ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ
