The last few weeks of August I heard the lament many times “Wow this summer…
The powerful energy of the full moon is present a few days before, the day of and a few days after. The full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy which gives each of us the opportunity for emotional and spiritual growth.
The Full Moon’s powerful energy that swells the oceans and fills jails and emergency rooms, can also move “mountains”. To move those mountains (obstacles to our happiness) our energy must be harnessed properly.
Since we live in a dual world and have duel natures it is up to us to choose whether we will illuminate our positive or negative feelings and emotions.
Because the moon’s influence extends a few days before and a few days after you have a concentrated number of days to set intentions and harness the moon’s extraordinary energy to accelerate your positive spiritual growth.
Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy, you must be in a calm state of mind to receive a positive effect. Remember that whatever is going on in your body, mind and spirit will be amplified.
Here are 5 tools that you can use to maintain calm peaceful energy:
The use of energetic essences such as flower essences (read the July flower essence wisdom word blog post by Jessica Mennella )
Breath exercises – alternate nostril breathing and Sama Vritti (equal inhale and exhale) can focus and clear the mind (alternate nostril) and ground you (equal inhale and exhale)
Meditation – whether you have a traditional meditation practice or you simply “sit” quietly for a few minutes meditation can bring you back to your true self.
Mindfulness – pay attention to your thoughts and emotions. Use breath and meditation techniques to calm the mind and sooth agitated emotions.
Let go of technology and take a walk on the beach or in the park. Lean against a tree and commune with nature.
Use your tools and bathe, with intention in the light of this glorious full Moon
- This full moon is exact mid day on July 27th
