When we get into the habit of coordinating our personal growth with the phases of the moon, we reap dramatic results. When I do Reiki sessions, meditate, make goals, or so personal growth work, I try to incorporate these into my work. For instance, when I prepare myself for a client and I receive the message that they need more self care, I light a green and orange candle On top of my usual black protection candle and white candles. I also use crystals in my practice. Crystals are amazing little friends that help magnify and project your healing intent in your environment I put the intent of healing and self-esteem and remove the blocks that are standing in the way of this persons self care. Incorporating these small symbolic steps into our growth work makes a big difference on all levels.
