I am so excited to do my first full moon ritual tonight! I am always setting the stage to create and evolve my life, so when I discovered the impact the moon has on personal change and evolution, I was open to try it. Plus it helps me be more disciplined and consistent with my goal setting, and personal growth.
The full moon ritual is for releasing or purging the things in our lives that no longer serve us such as addictions to food, drugs, or sex, relinquishing suffering involved in hurtful relationships, discharging physical and emotional pains, etc.
With the new moon we set goals and wrote down what we wanted brought into our life. Always keep an open mind and don’t put limits on yourself. Depending on what we wrote, we might have to release or change some of the circumstances in our present life to get there. For instance, if we wrote down a trip that we would love to take, we might have to get our compulsive spending under control, or take a budget keeping seminar, or maybe we have to let go, and stop being a tight wad. Or if we want a great boyfriend, we need to let go of patterns, behaviors, and negative beliefs that keep attracting dirt bags our way. Whatever our goals are, there’s a process to get there, and usually it involves removing the old, and bringing in the new.
The hardest thing to do is to really get real with ourselves. No one likes to admit when they are wrong, let alone look at our ugly things we do. We always have to remember that our present situation is a result of our past choices. Taking responsibility for ourselves and not blaming others is the first step in changing anything in our live. We really need to look at the things that keep happening in our lives and realize that we need to seize this opportunity to really look at our reality and inner truth. Do we keep spending money because we are unhappy with ourselves or our marriage. When we decide to take a good look at ourselves, we see that the things that we need to change are a symptom of something deeper inside yourself. Do we spend money to fill the hole of emptiness that our unhappy marriage creates? Going deeper we ask why are we in an unhappy marriage? Are we afraid of losing our material things, status, we don’t want to go through the change because it is scary and we’re allowing fear to control us? We stuff all this down with things we buy, and are temporarily distracted by our new things, but we are still unhappy, and now broke also!
When it comes to relationships, we find we are attracting the same kind of guy, over and over again, sometimes letting the same one back again even though we know it’s not in our best interest, but for some reason you just keep finding yourself in that same predicament. We realize that this is no accident. We are attracting these type of men because on another level we subconsciously believe we can only get or deserve that. When we look deeper at our belief system and our outward manifestation of it, we can begin to make changes. Maybe we need to learn about how to acquire better self esteem? Do we need to attend a co-dependency program or group if we keep attracting people we need to rescue from chemical or physical abuse? Are we negative and unhappy and find that we attract the same, which in turn makes us more miserable?
When we sit tonight, write on a piece of paper that things we need to cleanse from ourselves. Be real and honest with yourself. Share with a friend, or just reflect if too personal. Some common issues are food, impulse control, bad relationship, self discipline, money management, isolation, depression, weight loss…the list goes on.
Always remember, you are never alone. There is always love and support from others who have championed the same issue, or are going through change themselves. It is always very exciting for me to see people evolve and grow. We need to love and support each other as we strive to achieve our best life. Becoming our true self is something to celebrate, through all the twists and turns.
Applied knowledge gives us power…to live our best life!!
When we chose to give up something in our life, we need to replace it with something positive and healthy. this takes self awareness, and an open mind to new ways of thinking, living, and interacting with others. Be kind to yourself and give yourself leeway for mistakes and of course challenges will pop up to give you the opportunity to practice your new skills, and show yourself that you are worth all the good things that you want in life.
