Super Moon Ritual – Connecting with the Great Mother and Finding Purpose.

great mother 2Oh yes, here we are at the Supermoon.  This moon is the closest to the Earth as it has been in over 60 years!!  It’s huge and bright and colorful….and well…magical! 🙂

This month has sure been interesting hasn’t it?!  Lots of change, lots of shock, lots of summoning of the unhealed emotions and evoking of our power.  I started the month with this sudden anxiety, heaviness and couldn’t breathe feeling.  Then it switched to sadness, an uneasiness and even anger post election (even though I’m not American nor do I live in America).  My husband was surprised at my reaction but as a woman, something was called forth.  I couldn’t believe that somebody who embodied such disrespect of women, of minorities, of the disabled was elected as a president.  I felt a deep despair for a day and then the inner fires started to burn like they’ve never burned before.

We have more work to do here sisters.  The Great Mother has stirred the pot of bravery, of fiereceness, of change within us all.  It is time for great healing and it has been brought forth, the mirror has shone in our faces.  In the end, perhaps this was the best thing that could have happened for it has ignited a passion and power in many women across the globe.  We are being called to be louder, bolder, stronger and more vocal for ourselves and for those who need support and advocacy.  We are being called to embody and bring forth the Great Mother energies into the world like never before.  It’s kind of exciting…you can feel a change occurring within many already…there’s a stirring strength in the air.  Can you feel it??

This Taurus Full Moon feels like a salute from the Great Mother herself.  Grandmother moon shines bright on our fiery, feminine souls and asks us to unleash our wild, passionate selves into our lives and thus into the world at large.  We do so my seeing why we are here.  What is our purpose and how do we bring it forth?  We can finally see, the moon is so bright it is shining it upon us.

Supermoon Ritual.- Connecting with The Great Mother and Finding Purpose

On this Full Moon, find a cozy, quiet place to light a candle or two.  Ignite some incents or sage breathe it in allowing your body to settle and relax.  See those glowing moon beams shooting through your body and calming you further and further with every breath.  Breathe them in and allow yourself to sink deep into yourself.  Walking down a flight of inner stairs into your deepest depths.  Imagine the Great Mother hugging you, nurturing you, filling you up with love and care with Her presence and energy.   See Her, what does she look like?  What is she wearing?  What does she feel like, sound like?  What colors does she wear?  What unique features does she have?  Feel her energy, what does it feel like?

She whispers something to you in your ear.  She’s asking if you can remember your purpose, your soul call, your stripe on the Earth.  As she whispers to you, you allow yourself to see an image emerge.  Go with what comes.

Draw it or describe it.

Become that image and journal/finish these sentences.  Talk as the image.

I feel….

The adjective that best describes me is….

I wish….

I must….

I need….

I will…..

 

Enjoy this glorious Supermoon friends!  Even if you just absorb the energy of the moon beams or feel the embrace of Grandmother Moon.  And so it is…our soul journeys are being called forth like never before.

May Full Moon- Express Your Wild.

mayfullmoonHappy Full Moon!!! 🙂

Wow, this is an interesting full moon.  The energies are buzzing, new patterns forming.  After the last moon cycle (and collapsing, ending/ crisis of last moon) we are in a time of rebuild, renewal, re-structuring.  We have started new patterns, new cycles, new ways of approaching life.  And we are being rewarded.

This moon feels joyous, a time of celebration.  A time of fun.  In Canada, it’s May long weekend and it’s actually hot and sunny.  It almost always rains May long weekend but this year is different, this moon is different.  The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the people are buzzing with excitement.

I pulled a card from the Native Spirit Oracle cards and it is Song of the Wild card.  How fitting.

New horizons await you!  You’re ready to savor the wonders of the world.  Take some risks.  Answer the call of the wild.  Step out of your comfort zone.  Live passionately.  Take steps in the direction of freedom.  Expand beyond your limitations and boundaries.  Maybe its time to take a journey or do something new and exciting.

Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know:  You are entering a period of expansion and going beyond self-imposed limitations.  Even if you feel hesitant, this is a time to try something new and do things in a different way.  You might even visit far-off lands or wild natural places.  Adventure often entails risk, but without it, life can become lackluster and stagnant.  There’s a vast new, and wondrous vista just around the corner, but you’ll never see it if you don’t venture out.

It feels like a victory moon, a bright light shining on us for choosing another path, for rebuilding rather than staying stuck in the rubble of the past.  It’s time for change and growth and you have earned the right to celebrate your courage, your commitment, your steps forward into the new. It takes guts to let the old go, to face the inner stuff so you can and to walk a new tight rope into a brand new way of life.

So do something fun and wild.  Something that feeds your freedom and wild soul.  Dress up today/tonight. Wear a bright lipstick, a bold dress, a funky hat.  Do your make-up differently, wear bold jewelry.  Be out in the wild, in nature, around fire and friends.  Celebrate your wild soul by expressing it.

Happy Full Moon friends, enjoy this fun one, it is well deserved 🙂

4 Simple Ways to Ritual with Spring.

spring picHappy Spring Folks and Friends 🙂

Today I feel inspired to make a clean slate, a fresh start.  It’s time to get the energies going.  I wish for you today to really just feel the joy of the change of season, feel the energy of awakening.

Here a 4 Fun and Easy Ways to Dance Into Spring:

1) Burn Bay leaves.  On these bay leaves you can list what you’d like to accomplish this spring season.  Burn in a bowl and let the smell invoke a fresh energy and mood enhancing breeze in your home.

2)  Word associate with Spring.  Just indulge and roll around in the Energy of our Earth Mother re-awakening and bringing back the light.  Just word associate.  Put a circle with the word Spring in the middle and make branches of words that come to mind.  Don’t think just do.  Allow the creative flow. Here’ mine.  Spring-renewal-rebirth-inspiration-ignition- sparkle-dance-fly-take flight-BEGIN!  See what comes it’s so joyful 🙂

3) Make a seasonal To-Do list.  Include both feminine (being) and masculine (doing) goals…ie make sure you make space to reflect, write, create, alongside your 101 goals 😉 Heck make this into a little collage, get inspired!

4) Buy some colorful flowers for your space, your home, your loved ones.  Invoke the energy of spring, color and light.  Open the windows, feel the breeze, bring in new wind-songs into your home.

And so it is.

Happy First Day of Spring my Friends.  May you enjoy the lovely new energies of Spring herself.

As always, if you feel called, I’d love it if you FOLLOWED THE BLOG.
