How are you this Wild Wednesday? It is a pleasure to see the moon grow full and know that no matter what unexpected events may occur in my life, the moon is constant. She is a dear friend who is always there. Her energy impacts me greatly and though she is not always calming, our love affair is always special and unique each month.

Full Moon

We are in the direction of North and it is time to reflect over what our mind has uncovered and find clarity. Let’s move away from the excuses and get down to our truth.

I recall a time when I was brought to my knees and was forced to face my truth. I was living in Chiang Mai, Thailand and was drowning in fear, misery, trauma, shame and anger. While feeling this way I was stubbornly committed to staying abroad.  In my head being a mess was better than admitting defeat and going home for assistance. I had survived a life-threatening attack in another country a year prior to this and was adamant that I was fine. I had several people who have gone through scary experiences tell me that I may have post-traumatic stress disorder and it may surface later on. I was convinced this wasn’t going to happen to me. About six months later I recall being on the floor of my apartment feeling emotionally dead and wondering how I got here.

November came around and I remembered having a deep knowing that this could not go on any further. I needed to let go of the story from my past and begin the healing process. Thailand was a soft and loving place that allowed me to crumble into my darkness. It was where I began to look up again at the sky, stars and heavens and asked for help. It was the moon that gave me the sign that it was time to return home and nurture my soul.

Thailand has a beautiful festival called Loi Krathong which is celebrated on the Full Moon in November. The parade started at Thapae Gate and ended at the Mae Ping River.  I would light firecrackers for Father Sky to hear my calling. I carried a beautifully decorated flower boat made with banana leaves called a Krathong to the river bank. As I lit the candle and incense on the Krathong, I asked the river spirits to take my troubles and my fears away from me and down the river where the Water Goddess could wash it away. I would then light a paper lantern filling it with my desires which included finding a community that would help me heal and provide me clarity so I could be fully present in honoring my life’s work. I watched the rice paper lanterns fly over the city and join the thousands of other wishes float to the heavens.

After the festival I sat down and had an honest conversation with myself. I envisioned what my new year would look like and how I could receive support. I mapped out my vision and was able to go home for the holidays feeling lighter. I made the firm decision that I would leave Thailand in March and I did.

If you are desiring space to map out your year please let me guide you. I am so deeply grateful for your support and your willingness to hold me as I continue to share my life experiences so openly. I would love to help you calendar out your year. I have opened my schedule for 12 special women who desire a 90-minute session with me to get clear around their year so they can enjoy their holidays and feel prepared to make significant changes in January 2015.

Journal Reflection

What was your intention during the new moon?

What has unfolded?

What are you deeply grateful for?

What part of your intention desires more clarity?

What no longer serves you that you are willing to release this evening?

What parts of yourself are you ready to forgive?

Full Moon Ritual

In honor of Fire, write down all that you desire to let go and burn it. Ask Grandfather to take it from you with gratitude.

In honor of Air, take the ashes and spread them outside either in the river or on Mother Earth’s ground.

In honor of Earth, place your hands deep into Mother Earth’s womb. Allow your hands to feel her cold soil and ask that her energy mend your wounds and unlock your divine power so you can step into your light. Any anger that has lingered, allow yourself the space to scream, pound and release into Mother Earth for she will take it, kill it, and birth new life from it.

In honor of Water, retreat inside and take a warm bath. Connect with the water goddesses and nourish yourself. Sink your head under the water where the world sounds different and use your mind’s eye to capture the vision of your bright future.
