Release and Rebalance with a Full Moon Ceremony

This month’s full moon is unique in several ways…for more information on each element, I have included a link to my favorite expert on the topic.

1. It falls on Friday the 13th which carries it’s own energy : http://www.whats-your-sign.com/number-thirteen.html

2. There are 4 planets in retrograde, which brings a special energy : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99mHJTh8CXk

3. It is the Dyad moon – balance of physical and spiritual desires http://www.whats-your-sign.com/moon-symbolism-and-moon-meditation.html

What all of this means for you:

The full moon is a time for purging and releasing that which no longer serves you. With the added element of the 13th and Mercury in retrograde, this is a great time to release all things that are causing imbalance in your life. A time to re-balance and redefine what is no longer serving you in both physical and spiritual ways; a time to release all that has been disconnected from the heart and time to return home (home meaning the seatof balance within you…your heart)

 

Consider this: The upper 3 chakras are related to mental/ lighter/ masculine energies and the lower 3 chakras are related more towards physical/ heavier/ feminine energies.

**Keep in mind all chakras hold the energy of both masculine/feminine ~ as in yin/yang ~ one cannot exist without the other.

 

 

There is one chakra where both the masculine and feminine meet in perfect balance. It is also the space where the mental moves into the physical…idea into form. It is where  I encourage you to bring your energy during the entire ceremony ~ your heart chakra.

 

Because balance is so significant for this full moon, I am offering both an internal and an external element to the ceremony.

(For the internal, I have also recorded an MP3 if you wish to play it during the ceremony to be guided.)

You can do them in either order, do what feels best for you.

 

Internal ~ listen now or download here

External ~

1. Write out on separate pieces of paper, each belief/ behavior/ addiction/ thought pattern/ experience you wish to release; as it is no longer serving you from moving into your highest purpose. (Most likely, these are all issues that have been coming up strongly in the last few months/ weeks)

2. Under the light of the full moon, read each item aloud stating an affirmation of releasing (such as ‘I now release_______________ ‘) and then burn it (safely) or bury it. This effectively releases the energy attachment to you.

3. Once you have read and released each item, stand facing the full moon and feel it’s light bathing each cell in your body.

4. Ask the angels to provide support and clear direction of your next step for the highest good.

5. Close the sacred space by asking the angels/guides to seal the energy so it continues as a protected, safe connection.

 

Notice the shifts that begin occurring over the next 2 weeks!

 

Namaste,

So let’s explore what this has to do with work.

Put your heart into everything you do. How you approach your projects, customers, people, and your boss changes how they respond to you.

Today’s thought is short and simple, but profoundly life altering.

The biggest struggle people have at work tends to be relationships.

I have a secret for you when it comes to people

— They are holding up a mirror, simply reflecting back what you are giving

This means that whatever is annoying or frustrating you or whatever excites or makes you happy….is coming from you.

Read that again…..

They are holding up a mirror, simply reflecting back what you are giving

This means that whatever is annoying or frustrating you or whatever excites or makes you happy….is coming from you.

Let that soak in….with each experience you have today, come back to this thought….and listen to your inner wisdom.

How you can deeper understand this:

In a moment today, where you are experiencing annoyance or frustration or something similarly negative….define what specifically it is that is annoying you and then ask yourself…Where does this exist in me?

Example:

–I regularly get frustrated at work when someone does not perform a task I expect them to.

–I ask myself what is it specifically that I am frustrated with

–I see so much more in this individual than they see in themselves and I get frustrated that they are not living up to their potential

–Then I turn it around (my reflection)…Where do I feel I am not living up to my potential?

–Get honest….I am focusing on busywork, instead of that project that really excites me

–What step can I take right now to work on that project. I can delegate the small task at hand and this would free up 30 min to create some forward movement.

Turning it around and recognizing that the person is simply reflecting back to you what you are giving allows you to step out of the victim role and own the power you have to change your experience…all this without guilt, shame or anger!

It’s a tool that was given to us to help us create the world we want by recognizing what we don’t want!

Happy reflecting!

Notice the shift.

Live Love,

Jenean
