Are you fed up of holding onto stuff that no longer serves you?

I started working with the moon cycles in January 2018 following reading Yasmin Bolands book Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles. So now I have the new moon and full moon dates on my calendar. The more that I have been working with the moon, the more in tune I have become to my emotions. The New Moon is all about setting intentions and writing down your dreams. The Full Moon is about letting go. Cue Frozen song, Let It Go!

Tonight, Feb 19th 2019, the full moon is a supermoon, which means it is amazingly close to the earth, and is in the sign of Virgo.  We are specifically going to be encouraged to let go of repetitive thoughts, over-thinking, worries, and fears of the future.

How does letting go of stuff help me?

Do you really want to harbour grudges against past exes? Do you think it is a valuable use of your time to spend resenting people from your past who have hurt you? Do you think those people deserve your fabulous energy? If you answered no then read on.

What do I have to do?

Good question! The first time you do this it might take a while. Sit at a table/desk with no distractions. Get a pen and paper. Now you are going to go back to childhood with the first one. Anyone who bullied you, your teachers, your parents, anyone you feel you need to forgive write down their names. And carry on with partners, exes, work colleagues, bosses, anyone. Anyone who has ever hurt you, that you feel resentment towards or anger. Write them all down. The first time you do this it feels quite cathartic. When you have finished you then think of 5 people in your life that you are grateful for. Then the fun bit. You take your list outside and you burn it. By doing this you are saying to the Universe I am ready to release and let go of that which no longer serves me. By creating the space within you will then allow for bigger and better things to come your way.

Now what?

The next thing you will do is set your new moon intentions in 2 weeks. You have created space for better things to come in and serve you. Happy Moon Working 🙂

Full Moon releasing

Full Moon Rituals

I’ve been doing Full Moon releasing rituals since January 2018 when I read Yasmin Bolands book, Moonology.  Sitting there writing my list of everyone I want to forgive and what I want to let go of. Then burning my list. And letting go. In my head I thought yep I have let that go. However sometimes right before the new moon I have started to feel what I can only describe as wobbly. I am ultra-sensitive. I don’t feel like being sociable. I want to be by myself. I cry easily.

Today I had a lightbulb moment. I wanted to go to a Mind, Body and Soul Fair. But since Friday I have been feeling wobbly. Was it because I’m ovulating? Was it because I’m still waiting for my divorce to come through? It didn’t feel like a stress thing. I just felt fragile and wanted to cry. I went to the library with my friends and kids. One of my very close friends spoke to me about a couple of issues that she was worried about on my behalf. I broke down in the library. She apologised for making me cry. It was all ready to come out anyway. The timing just sucked. And it was raining outside so I couldn’t wear my sunglasses to disguise my red eyes. I went shopping afterwards in the hope it might make me feel better. It did a bit. I went into Mango and bought a beautiful top.

For the rest of the day I felt wobbly but I got through it. What was going on? The next day I felt OK. On Sunday I dropped my kids off at their dads, went home, crept into bed and cried and cried. I cried for about an hour. What’s wrong with me? I then had my eureka moment. I was releasing. I had written down my releasing stuff at the full moon, BUT it was only now I was actually physically and emotionally releasing. After my cry I felt fresh and renewed. I realised that the work I am doing on myself does actually mean I have to release my emotions and allow myself to cry.

Twice this week I have heard the word Surrender. And that’s what I am currently doing, surrendering and allowing the process to work. Through releasing we are making space for greater things to come in.
