Journal Prompts to Reflect & Integrate the Good, Bad and Ugly of this Past Year.

I like doing these question every year around New Years. It’s so interesting to look back on and reflect. Each year is so voluptuous in learning, healing and evolvement.  Take a moment to sit and ponder, dive deep and soak in the year.  Write your heart on to the page while letting go and inviting all the energies of the past year and the year to come.

1) What was the single best thing that happened this past year ?

2) What was the single most challenging thing that happened this past year?

3) What was an unexpected joy this year?

4) What was an unexpected obstacle ?

5) Pick 3 words to describe this past year.

6) Pick 3 words your partner would use to describe their year. ( without asking)

7) What are the best books you read this year?

8) What was your biggest personal change from January to December of this year?

9) What was your single biggest time waster this year ?

10). What was the best way you used your time this year ?

11)What is the biggest thing you’ve learned this year?

12) Create a phrase or statement that describes this past year for you.

13) What is your word for the New Year ahead?  Mine is creation.  And Manifestation.

I hope you enjoy and savour the taste of these reflections into your whole body and soul. And so it is 🙂

Happy New Year friends 🎉😘.

Soothing Solstice Ritual

Happy Winter Solstice from here in Canada! On this Darkest day of the year the Universe has brought me back to the teaching of the Grouse.  I have lost my balance between inner and outer self, between light and dark, doing and being.  And the grouse has puffed up her chest in my face, reminding me of her sacred message.

In her book Medicine Cards, Jamie Sams connects the grouse to the sacred spiral.   She asks us, “Analyze the way you move through your world.  How do you picture yourself in the act of “locomotion”…What word would you use to describe the way you move through both the material and spiritual worlds?…is your movement compatible with your greatest desires and goals?”  (journal prompts!!)

For me I’m like a chicken with head cut off, running around my busy life with my three boys and husband, always doing three things at one time, somewhat disconnected from it all.  I want to move slower, more gently and way more consciously.  I want to be fully present in the moment of what I’m doing.  I have almost come to a screeching halt in the spirit world and need to change this today!  In this moment I see how we cannot manifest this visions into physical form if we are not taking time to see the vision in the moments of still and spiritual world exploring.

The grouse is also an ancient symbol for birth and rebirth and is often represented by the sacred spiral as this is the way the grouse does her sacred dance.   The sacred spiral is  symbol of personal power, a feminine symbol that we used to paint on our bodies for ceremonies and vision quests, a symbol of visioning to the centre of creation, down the sacred spiral and towards the centre and still spot of a tornado.

This message fit well as I have been really exploring my energy lately and witnessing how much I push myself and how much I pull back.  And in my self-assessment I’ve come to realize that I’m really good at pushing myself and I rarely pull back my energy on my own accord but usually out of collapse. I typically go from a state of pushing, pushing, pushing to a grinding halt…stopped dead in my tracks with inertia and exhaustion.  The experience of pulling back is not gentle or subtle, it’s extreme and fierce. It’s forceful and out of desperation, a need for recuperation and a catching of my breath for survival.  Like everyone else I’m learning to exist somewhere between inertia and a thousand miles a minute and moving away from the extremes.  I do know this, for every action there is an equal or greater reaction.  So when we move to one extreme, there is always the opposite extreme waiting for our arrival.

So can we experiment and maybe loosen our ropes?  Pull back from doing so much?  I remember during my recovery from disordered eating, I forced myself to find the middle ground and find the luscious glow of mediocrity.  I wouldn’t run as far or push as hard, I would intentionally try not to be the best or on top but rather middle ground because it was gentler and more loving but it was deeply uncomfortable.  Feelings of worthlessness and fear of not being good enough oozed out of me as I tried to live a more balanced life.  I equated not being perfect or the best with failure even if it cost me my well being.  A new form had to be found.  This constant over-doing and busyness is a ridiculous and unhealthy way to live my life, no more.  The busyness of my life has moved me into exhaustion and disconnection.  My pulling back is to be more intentional and consciousness in the moment and way more stillness.  I need to make space for it like my life depends on it because I know it does.

On this beautiful day of darkness, I encourage us to find the sacred ceremony of intentional gentleness.   Mmmm…I want to inhale the word “gentleness”  into the aura of my life and let her soothing energy settle into my bones.  So celebrate this day of darkness by sacred acts of doing less, of being gentle, of soothing the soul by dipping into our dark depths.  Perhaps gentleness is letting the dishes dry in the sink or reading a good book instead of doing the laundry.  I found it to be quite playful to try and find balance in a gentle, subtle, loving way in my every day life instead of just pushing and getting through these few days and then falling ill or finishing my weak in a state of depletion.  Perhaps it’s even lighting up on the workout or spending the day cozy in fuzzy socks and Christmas sweaters by the fire.  Perhaps it’s lighting candles and infusing peppermint oils with the sparkling twinkle of Christmas lights around us.   Make today a sacred game of finding was to be gentle and softer, more being less doing.

SOLSTICE REFLECTIVE WRITING RITUAL:

What is your relationship with Beingness?

 

What is your relationship with your own inner darkness and shadow self?  Do you welcome and embrace your darkness or do you push it away and positive affirmation yourself into by-passing it?

 

Do you spend time in reflection and contemplation? What supports this practise for you or what hinders it?

Imagine sitting with the great sacred being of Solstice, the keeper of the dark, cavernous portals of being.  You and this powerful gatekeeper are sitting around a crackling fire inside a deep rocky cave.  Can you just sit in the energy of this Being..feel that being ness, pull it in, let it soften you, soothe you, surrendering your guards.  Just sit and be, feeling Presence, feeling the warmth of the fire on your face.  Sit there and receive the gifts of Being.  Inhale the gentleness and calm around you.   Expand the calmness all throughout your body.  Feel it in your lungs and allow it to settle into your bones.  Savour in it for as long as you need.  When you are done, make an offering to the Divine Solstice being seated with you and when you’re ready, open you’re eyes and feel how you still feel the gift of Beingness.

Aho! And so it is.

Happy Solstice Friends 🙂

A Powerful Full Moon Healing Ritual for the end of the Decade.

adult blur close up cold
Photo by Brigitte Tohm on Pexels.com

Happy last Full Moon of the decade!  It really feels like the last full moon of the decade, doesn’t it?!  Like a real completion, ending and new beginning, a new era is about to emerge.

This full moon feels like a wrap up of the last ten years.  It’s time to dot the “I’s” and cross the “T’s”.  If you were like me you may have felt the urge to clean, cleanse and organize.

In a couple weeks, my oldest son will be turning 10.  And it has me reflecting a lot on my life ten years ago.  At the very beginning of this decade, I was 9 months pregnant and found out my husband (at the time) was cheating.  My life literally fell to pieces as I birthed my son into the world.  I remember going to a tarot card reader who pulled the Tower Card for me.  The card showed a burning and collapsing tower with giant piles of ruble and people jumping out of the tower.  It couldn’t have summed up my life better at the time.  All that I had built was being destroyed.  Little did I know that it would be the best thing that ever happened.

This last week in particular I have been struggling a lot with my health.  My neck becomes suddenly immobile and swollen.  So I listened to my body and just moved my awareness into the areas of pain…between my shoulder blades and neck.  As my mind went to this spot, an image of knife popped into my head.  I had been stabbed in the back.  My husband’s affairs felt like being stabbed in the back, the ultimate betrayal.

As I spoke with my neck and asked what it needed, I heard her whisper…”to take the knife out.”  I have been living with the knife still in my back, or at least the memory of its pain.  I started this decade with heartache and loss and I’ve carried that in my back til this moment.  I’m done waiting for a magical apology, or an owning of a horrific action.  I’m freeing myself from the last energetic chord to my ex.  As I imagined pulling the knife out, I seen myself walking to his house, ringing the doorbell and handing him the blood stained knife.  I turned my back and walked away.  It’s his to hold, not mine.  What he does with it is his choice.   I’m done living with the memory of that pain.  I don’t need to anymore, I’ve done the healing.

I’m entering this new decade in triumph, on a chariot of courage, determination and clarity.  Ten years after this treacherous time in my life, I’m remarried and have two more sons, a new home, a new job, essentially a whole new life.  I have rebuilt a stronger tower, on a much sturdier foundation.  I’v built a life that is actually suited to me.

The next ten years of my life will have nothing to do with that knife.  It will be about my life that I created and all the new stuff emerging, manifesting and singing my name.  To close my journey inward, I felt the need to heal the open wound in my skin left by the knife.  I imagined my guides coming and doing some energy healing and sowing me up with golden and sacred wire.  I imagined too putting my own hands on the wound and filling myself up with self-love and self-honour.  This is what I really want to focus on in the next ten years of my journey.  And so it is!

A FULL MOON SOUL JOURNEY FOR COMPLETION.

On this full moon I invite you to summon what is left of your learning in these last ten years.   Light some candles, burn some sage or innocence or infuse some oils and take some deep friggen’ breaths.  Really inhale.   Really exhale.  Move into that part of your body where the stuck energy and patterns of the last ten years are held.  Where is it?  What are the sensations that you notice?  Describe them.  Just move your mind there.   If you were to imagine an image that best represents the old wound or stuck pattern, what image emerges?  Or words, or shapes or colours?  Use your imagination.

What do you imagine this imagine represents?

What does your soul need regarding this energy in you?

What would the image/object say to you?

What do you need?

Are you ready to release it?

Ask your wise body how she would like you to release this old patterned energy?  Feel free to call in the elements of wind, water, fire or earth to help you.  Maybe a loved one, an Angel, a guide or power animal will be your helper.  Or maybe like me, you will just imagine pulling it out yourself.  There is no right or wrong, just what is.

What energy are you needing to fill yourself with, having removed this old energy and

pattern?

Are there helpers, guides, stars, Grandmother moon…the water…anything that can help you heal the spot of the old.

Fill yourself with golden, radiant light and feel how lightened you are from freeing yourself from this pattern you’ve carried for the last ten years.

You are amazing!

And so it is!

Happy Full Healing Moon.

Much love

Crystal

Full Moon Healing Ritual for Turbulent Times.

Photo by Ali atiabi on Pexels.com

Happy Full Moon!! These last few weeks have felt challenging, haven’t they? With mercury in retrograde, I have had many challenges with communication and deadlines, and trying to finalize plans has been an extraordinary challenge. And yet, deep down I held onto a knowing that all things shall work out as they are meant to, even though they may not turn out how I thought or planned. That’s a tough space to stay in, but I kept breathing my way back to that centred truth each time I flailed into panic or worry.

And on the flip side of that my relationship has been going through a real challenge. Many root issues have re-arisen. To be honest we may be at a make or break point and it’s scary. I feel like many of us are at this point and many relationships are being shaken loose to do what they are supposed to do…help heal us. Healing ourselves through the containers of relationships brings us closest to our Selves and the Divine.

Although this head space is hard energy to stay in and explore. Here’s what I know…I have fallen back into co-dependent patterns. I have over-stepped my boundaries trying way to hard to push my ideas of how to help my husband heal. I have tried to tell him and show him how I think he should explore his deeper Self and his untouched stuff. I have shifted my focus onto him and his flaws rather than express what I’m needing and where I’m not doing so hot. There are big pieces he has to address as well and I’m powerless in the outcome of if he does or not. He needs to for our survival and I need to do my work for our survival but the reality is this…I only have control of what I can do. The rest I have to let go; and I fucking hate that lol! I have a hard time with that. I want to force him and push him and manoeuvre him onto the healing path. And yet, it’s the one thing I can’t do. It brings up so much stuff for me too…can I trust a man to actually follow through? Will a man actually do healing work? I don’t trust men to follow through or change or heal, that is an underlying belief and pattern of stickiness for me. I am not sure I believe a man will be brave enough to step into vulnerability and face his darkness, own it and heal it and yet I know that those men do exist.

Luckily on this Full Moon, the Power Card has found its’ way to me from the Psychic Tarot by John Holland. It offers the following…

“As a spiritual being, you have unlimited power at your command. This card represents inner strength, willpower, courage, compassion, generosity and love. At any moment, these beautiful qualities can assist you in coping with an adverse condition in front of you, or the many surrounding in your life. Set aside the necessary time to resolve such issues. Power represents more than physical, external strength; it can also be channeled emotionally, mentally and spiritually. When you have balance over mind, body and soul – and with the power of spirit – anything can be overcome to achieve a positive result.

Power and Strength can be developed to work in harmony in any given situation. Every obstacle, every error helps build your knowledge and understanding of the world around you. When you make a mistake, it’s chance for you to stop, listen and ask yourself: What am I supposed to be learning here, and how can I make this situation better? Mistakes are wake-up calls, in that they provide you with opportunities to discover your weaknesses, what needs to be changed, and which areas of your life need improving. Equally, they can blessings in disguise. Just remember: you are power!

Full Moon Healing Ritual:

So on this full moon that seems to be full of discord and disharmony and challenges….we are asked to clear the way…to go deeper and understand these challenges as learning opportunities and inner growth portals to our Divine Selves. So I invite you join me in lighting some candles, burn some incents or sage or infuse some oils and gather your pen and paper and meet me on the page.

Let us ask. (about a challenge or challenges at hand in life at the moment)…

What would inner strength say?

What would willpower say?

What would courage say?

What would compassion say?

What would love say?

What would generosity say?

And lastly….What am I supposed to be learning here, and how can I make this situation better? (pg 42)

A Wind Song Ritual for the Equinox

Happy Fall Equinox(or Spring depending on where you live) my friends.  This is the day when light and dark are equal.  A balance of yin and yang on our Earth Mother. I love the fall, the changing color of the leaves, the crisper feel of the air, and the call to begin the draw inward with some cozy candles and pumpkin spice. It’s a time of sweaters and boots, scarves and leggings.  I don’t know about you but I really enjoy each change of season and the changing of energies that come with them.  In Canada we feel the change of each four seasons and I absolutely love that.

So on this Fall Equinox the energy calls for a cleansing, a purifying of the air and a bringing in of the new life and energy.  We are all going through major changes at this time so I hope you find this fitting for all the transitions.

A WIND-SONG RITUAL
Open up many windows in your home and invite in the beautiful, crisp and luscious autumn air. Allow the breeze to sing a lovely transition song through your home as she cleanses the energy and brings in new light and life force during this equinox.  Call in the Great Spirit and the Great Mother, angels, fairies, spirit animals, guides and ancestors or whomever you feel connected to to help you in your ritual.  Feel the spirit of transition, manifestation and harvest in your home.  Feel how abundant you are in love and shelter. Feel the simultaneous warm and cool breeze as she caresses your cheek.

If you have, dab a bit of tea tree oil or sage oil onto your screens as a means to cleanse the air or light incense and allow the breeze to move the cleansing smoke throughout your home.

Close your eyes and hear the wind sing to you as she passes through your home.

What does she say to you?

Ask her a question ?

How does she answer?

I invite you to journal your luscious conversation with the wind.

To end the ritual, make an offering to the wind, literally or imaginatively. Perhaps it’s some tobacco or flowers or cornmeal. Maybe it’s sending loving energy or the image of hearts. Anything goes.

Sing the praises for the beauty of the wind and the change of season ahead. And so it is 😊❤️🍂🍁🌻

Enjoy your new and shifted energy.

And so it is my friends.

March New Moon Energy

Happy new Moon!! This cycle we are moving into awareness and evaluation of our relationships. Fun, fun, fun! This includes romantic relationships, friendships, work partnerships and family relationships .

It feels heavy and mucky and there’s a lot of unknown elements. For myself, my hubby and I have hit a rough patch. A boulder has crossed our path and we are a bit stuck at it. We’ve been going to counselling to sort out the layers of rubble that created the boulder and it’s not easy or fun. But it’s necessary for our union and mostly for our own individual growth.

He’s mirroring to me some dark spots and unhealed pockets I need to explore…own and heal. And I am doing the same for him. If we do not let ourselves stand in the flames of vulnerability, it’s easy to get defensive and deny or even blame the other. It’s raw and naked and scary as bleep!

But this is big big healing we (all of us ) are being asked to do and release. It is clearing away of the armour and guards of love that we have used as protection since the eons of time … but now the universe in Her glory asks us to surrender it down and move more fully into the radiant realms of love and trust.

It will not be an easy path but keep vision on the course. Ask yourself over and over…

What would love say ???

What would love do???

What would love think????

Truth be told, some relationships will disintegrate and dissolve into dust because the healing that is being asked of us is soul deep and some won’t be ready. And as hard as it will be, it will be ok. Just be in each moment of unknown on step at a time.

Maybe we’ve carried these fears for lifetimes or since childhood or since our last betrayal… but it is heavy and deep and the work is immense but I guarantee you, it will be life changing. It will change every aspect of how you experience your life. You will move into a deep trust and peace. This will shift so much into the world.

Try and trust and stay in the belief that healing will happen it whatever forms our binds take. Pray, envision, believe, speak, imagine and feel the universe caressing your heart as you walk the path of a healing soldier. Imagine what the healing will be and feel like and see it occur. Who’s there? What are you doing? How are things different ? How have things changed ?

On this new moon, take some time and honour this deep and humble healing time.

I honour you and your journey . And so it is ❤️.

Healing and Balancing Ritual for Fall Equinox.

Happy Fall Equinox and Full moon. It’s a dandy isn’t it??

The energies are shifting after a busy, active, action based summer and our feminine souls are craving soul food, we are ravenous for soul nourishment. I personally am at a place of starvation in the soul department… hungry for a shift into softness, gentleness and ease.

Our feminine natures are howling at us to return to the darkness and caves of our inner selves. Our Wild feminine souls are waiting for us at the inner fire of sacred stillness, silence and retreat. Magic dust is in the fire waiting for us to simply sit and inhale the wonder and depths of the inner soils of oneself.

I have been so busy and active that I have lost my balance. I feel stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. And yet The Equinox calls for balance between light and dark… day and night, the physical and the spiritual.

I need more soul time, more stillness, more space for deep inner reflection and soulful contemplation.

The reality is I need to create space and sacred moments in my day for this to occur. Even if it’s ten minutes or two, the point is nourishment.

It is a time of making an offering to our souls by doing what nurtures the Inner Self. This is a Sacred Act, a Sacred offering to the Divine within ourselves.

So on this lovely Equinox begin the soul offering with some sacred time and space. Light some candles and listen to a mediation, journal, contemplate, converse with your soul and at the sacred fire within. Begin to nurture the inner self with some sort of ritual that is nurturing to thy self. Perhaps it’s a bath or a cool brisk walk in the fall foliage.

Take some deep breaths and find yourself at a fire in a dark cave with your feminine wild soul right beside you. Notice what she looks like and how hungry she appears. Offer her some food and sustenance. Giver her some water, wrap her in a blanket and tend to that inner self. Simply offer your presence and see if you can gently shape shift into her, become that inner self. Feel the aliveness and energy. Ask yourself what you need for nourishment and aliveness? Perhaps you will notice that you are doing an action or an image appears in the fire or perhaps there is simply an inner knowing. When you feel ready shift back in that outer consciousness beside your soul. Lay down a red blanket and some rocks at the fire where you sat as a sacred offering. Let your soul know you shall return with an embrace. Before you go you give her a gift, an offering, what do you notice it is. Feel how full it makes her feel. Say your goodbyes and leave the cave back into the present time.

Journal your findings if you wish. Feel the feeling of fullness spread and expand in your body, all the way into you fingertips and heart.

Have a cup of tea, light some candles and enjoy the rest of this sacred night .

Aho! And so it is 🙂

I’m doing online video chat healing/ intuitive sessions if you are interested. Feel free to email me at crystalchagnon22@gmail.com to book a session if you’d like, I’d love to work with you .😊❤️

As always is be so grateful if you Followed My Blog if you so feel called .

Blessings and warmth friends.

Happy Equinox

😘

Another Simple Dark Moon Ritual

Tonight marks the Dark Moon, well the last of it anyways as we start a New Moon cycle in a couple of days.  This past month has been an emotional one, at times heavy and dark, and other times inspired and refreshing. It felt like we were navigating through dark tunnels trusting that at the end there would be light. However at times we’d grow tired of the dark or worry we wouldn’t find the end where the light was shining. And yet here we are arriving at the light, the end of the tunnel within steps.

This month I did a lot of cleaning, pondering, changing of the guard in my internal process. I had to teeter totter on lots of unknowns and usually I’d panic and assume or expect the worst. But this time, this month I changed my ways and told myself to expect the best, to envision everything working out. I felt calmer and more steady in the process and that has been a huge gift in and of itself. I followed my body’s lead and boundaries knowing it could mean everything I was building could collapse. It meant risking the outside creations that were coming my way and usually I’d just form into what was expected. But I can’t do that anymore and so I simply went inward and got to know my limits and set the boundaries to honour them and to trust this was the Divine way and path. I am risking a job doing this but it is my wellness on the line and it is me voicing what I can and can’t do for the first time ever. Id usually exist past my limits in my old life and keep going until collapse or illness. My struggle with my health and blood is really about me voicing and honouring my body and my limits and living in accordance with them, that is what I have learned. The superwoman cape is laid to rest. The real authentic version is on display.

This month too I cleaned out cabinets, files, and just crap that I had to let go. I rearranged furniture and smudged the bejesus out of my house, calling in new energy and clearing out the old mucky waters of fear or doubt.

So as we prepare for a new moon cycle let us lay to rest the old ways, the old patterns, the old negativity, the doubt, the fear, the doom… even the stuckness! Say goodbye.

DARK MOON SIMPLE RITUAL

So tonight we honor the old, we lay it to rest.  We take some moments alone, in silence, in retreat, in reflection and we hold the past, the loss, the end of era in our hands.  Maybe it’s an ending of a relationship or job, doubt, dead, uncertainty or whatever, we simply lay it to rest.  If you can grab a stone and write on it that which you wish to bury, to honor it’s death and ending.  Bury the stone into the Earth Mother under the dark moon sky and say your last and final good-byes.

Maybe you want to write a good-bye letter or simply say some words in your mind or out loud.

This clearing, this ending is prepping us for the new life, new energy that lies ahead.

For me it’s my old life.  It’s never coming back and I can come to accept that so the new one I’ve been trying on can fully blossom.  I don’t have to reach backwards anymore, clinging onto something that I can’t find.

Let’s clear the waters for the New Moon tomorrow.

And so it is 🙂

If you feel called to do so, feel free to Follow the Blog.  I’d be honored. 🙂  Thanks in bunches.

June full moon Energy & Soul Connecting Rituals.

This full moon the energy feels alive, electric, vibrational and active. It feels like a very masculine energy, a time when we are extremely busy… the pulse, the beat, the tempo is very fast paced and quick. There’s a lot of energy output going on as we work on manifestation, creating, doing and growing during this time and season.

And yet the words “feminine root” ( from the book Wild Feminine) is circling my busy aura, as though the energy is calling for my attention like a screaming bird in the sky.

I know I need to balance the busy masculine energy with tender, juicy, slower paced , alive, wild feminine connection. It’s tenderness and savouring of the radiant colours and experiences of summer life. My schedule feels so busy yet the need to pause and find stillness even for ten minutes feels necessary as though I need it to keep breathing.

This moon and Mars retrograde asks us to evaluate our schedules and energies. Are we balancing the feminine and masculine or at least honouring both aspects of our souls even though we may be lingering in the masculine elements at this energetic time. Are we still paying homage to the feminine ?

We need to root into our feminine natures when they are calling us home. It’s in this root that we are refuelled and filled with life force energy. It’s where our aliveness is tasted and swallowed so our connection to our own feminine wild soul is felt and experienced. It’s a place of conversing with Spirit, our guides, our ancestors and even the moon and stars so the magic and purpose of life is restored and refocused. It’s a slight, calm magical pulse of aliveness. A beautiful calm and alive contradiction.

So on this full moon the Grandmothers ask us to harness our energies that are grand and wide like a roaring fire and find the calm centre epicentre of the burning. Be the wood logs, be the air in the fire, or the blue in the flames and find the calm in the busy, dancing roar.

Read a book, journal, sit by a fire, do a feminine yoga like Yin or Restorative yoga and balance the energies. Take a Sacred pause. Stillness and contemplation are being called of us right now in brief moments amid the flaming busy energy of our lives.

Here are some journal questions for self reflection and connection during this lovely full moon. Sit by fire or light a candle. Brew some tea or summer juice and light an incense or two. Breath in the radiant full moon aliveness. Inhale the moon beams and let its magic and sparkle radiate in your cells.

1). What are you most happy and grateful for in your life right now.

2) put in a timer for five minutes and don’t lift your pen until the timer goes off. Just write what comes…. “I would love…”.

3) Imagine Grandmother Moon to become some sort of being… a person, animal, plant or element and invite her sit with you by the moon lit waters edge in your minds eye. Notice the gentle warm breeze and the burning fire. Lay a blanket for her and ask her a question, challenge or struggle you’d like guidance on. Give her an offering such as food or a gift like a necklace or bracelet. Perhaps it’s a stone. What does grandmother moon look like in form ? Just sit with this lovely energy and let her presence calm you. Let her answer you and give you guidance to your question. When you receive her words tell her thank you and ask if you can meet again. Imagine her returning to the moon on a moon beam when you are done and gently return to the present. Journal about your experiences.

Happy full moon friends xo Crystal
