New moons typically represent NEW beginnings.
The New Moon happening on February 23rd represents that, PLUS a lot more.
It reminds me of when I was working as a personal trainer.
When a client would lose a significant amount of weight (25 pounds or more)…
I would take them through a little ritual to bring their accomplishment to their full awareness.
I would invite them to go pick up a weight equivalent to the amount the lost and carry it around for a few minutes.
After they displayed signs they were getting tired, I would have them place the weight on the floor.
I wanted them to FEEL the significance of what they’ve done.
I wanted them to EXPERIENCE just how far they’ve come.
I wanted them to swell up with pride and joy.
Their face would always light up!
The reason I shared that is because this New Moon is a lot like that experience.
Sometimes you don’t know how much you’ve transformed because change happens gradually.
There are, however,...
To be a human being is to know and be complex. To be a woman in this life intensifies psychic complexity and represents another whole layer and motif of psychic nature. Most of us are familiar with the influential Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, famous for his description of what he proposed as universal human archetypes or modes of the human psyche. Two modern psychotherapists, in studying the word of Jung, Roger Woolger, and Jennifer Barker Woolger, embraced the repertoire of archetypes. These therapists translated it brilliantly into an interpretive view of the female psyche as viewed through the gamut of Greek Mythological Heroines in their book Goddess Within: A Guide to the Eternal Myths that Shape Women's Lives."
Taking 6 major Greek Goddesses, Woolger and Barker Woolger create a six Greek Goddess archetype system that any woman can use as a tool of self-inquiry for the purpose of self-understanding and exploration. These archetypes can be used by women to tap into...
The orgasmic peak of a sexual session is one of the most pleasurable experiences of life. During orgasm, the body relaxes, the senses open, and we can enter a state of connection with our partner. Orgasm is demonstrably beneficial for physical and emotional health and can relieve life's stresses as well as tension in a relationship. With all these benefits alone, we could be satisfied. Yet, what if I told you you could take it a step further? What if you collected and focused that orgasmic energy for other purposes?
Many esoteric practices and enlightenment programs speak to the power and even the necessity of controlling and harvesting orgasmic energy for spiritual purposes. The microcosmic orbit is a Taoist Qigong exercise designed to create a closed circuit in the body. By doing this, the sexual life force is built and retained for vitality and healing. Ancient cults and mystery schools have known and cultivated the power of sexual release since antiquity. Yet a lifetime...
Has dating been an exciting journey for you or more of a wild runaway train? While many people call it 'the dating game,' still others lament that it has become a hopeless lineup of frogs who never turn out to be princes (or princesses). Dating can be a complicated world, and being a conscious person doesn't necessarily make it any easier.
While, as conscious people, we spend years and lifetimes refining and developing our spiritual awareness and sense of well being, taking the high road in life can often make dating uniquely challenging. Conscious folks are often aware of many dimensions of reality and have come to realize that connecting with a partner will affect their energy field and life force in an intimate way. As a conscious person, you probably won't settle for just any suitor who comes along, as you are likely to be seeking profound, authentic, and elevated relationships.
Meeting conscious singles requires openness and willingness, self-awareness, and a few skills...
Every 29.5 days, we are given another chance. A fresh start with a pattern we would love to break. This gracious opportunity comes right on time with each New Moon. 12 to 13 times a year, we are gifted with such a moment. February 23rd is the day this time around. It occurs in early Pisces.
Aside from the basic energetics of tidal pull and the ebb and flows of qi through our lives, there are more complicated approaches to understanding the nuances of each lunation cycle. We do this by looking at the Moon's aspects to other planets. For instance, if a lunar cycle begins conjunct/or with Saturn, we could suspect heavy gravity and leaden feels throughout the cycle. If it were conjunct Jupiter, it could stretch our horizons into novel terrain, changing our perspective significantly. With this Moon, there are many favorable aspects to consider:
* It's close enough for a high five with Mercury who is currently retrograde, about to begin his own cycle three days after the New Moon
Throughout the month of February 2020, we have several dates with a profoundly significant!
The combination of 2’s and 0’s in these dates point to the entire month of February, the second month of the year 2020, being a window of opportunity for accessing heightened intuition, and masterfully co-creating with Spirit, blessings of light into your life.
This is significant in terms of the opportunity available in the month of February, but also shines an extra layer of insight into the opportunity available to us all throughout the year of 2020 as a whole.
The way I came to this conclusion, is through a combination of intuition and looking at the numerology
meaning of 2, and 0.
Numerology of 0
Zero represents pure potentiality. Zero represents the One Infinite Source of All That Is and the infinite potential that is accessible to you through...
Each of us is born exquisite, creative, and so very alive. Like a nesting doll, this essential inner nature eventually finds itself encased in layers of time, age, growth, experiences, identity, and, ultimately, adulthood.
The inner child is a now-famous phrase describing that timeless, tender, loving, and vulnerable being we were in childhood. It is also the dynamic and true inner self who always seeks expression, connection, play, authenticity, and freedom. Sigmund Freud placed great importance on this presence within the psyche. It is one that survives within us into adulthood and throughout life.
Yet what if this inner self has suffered and not fully healed? The inner child will go to great lengths be expressed, remembered, or acted out in our adult lives and can compel us to weave patterns of dysfunction and pain into our adult relationships.
The Wounded Inner Child Wreaks Havoc on our Relationships
As we morph into this supposedly mature adult person,...
How would it feel if you could get more done while actually "doing" less? If you could double, even triple your income, by being more relaxed, incorporating more pleasure, and letting go of the constant "hustle til you die" grind?
It's commonly taught that to find success, whether that be with your business, your relationships, or well anything that we need to continually FORCE ourselves to do things that we don't always want to do. We glorify overdoing, overgiving, and overstressing to meet deadlines. We put force over ease, doing over non-doing, and stress over our inner fulfillment.
But how would it feel if you could let go of the stress of money running out or never having enough? If you could eliminate for good, this constant, nagging feeling of lack or never enough?
With some simple shifts in your ENERGY, you can tap into greater financial abundance than ever before. Accessing your feminine magnetism allows you to access just that.
Instead of being like a...
Experts in our culture are finally identifying the challenges and gifts that come with being an empath. In the fields of psychology and spiritual practice, leaders are speaking and writing about the reality of the empath as it becomes clear how it can overlap with codependency.
Are You an Empath?
Being an empath is defined by an individual who is more highly sensitive than the average person. An empath feels the world more deeply and can absorb the emotions and energy of others- even without it being their intention. For an empath, boundaries can be an issue, and there must be an emphasis on developing methods to center and protect the personal energy field. Beyond simply being able to feel the emotions of others, empaths are also highly intuitive. Empathic individuals will sense what is below the visible surface of expression. These combined qualities will make it difficult for an empath to be in crowded public places. It will also mean that empaths typically need a healthy...
Many of us study the healing properties of crystals and keep an altar, meditation has become so commonplace that mainstream scientific institutions are presenting research to validate its personal and worldwide benefits- there are even meditation apps easily accessible, and it is uncommon to meet anyone who hasn’t at least heard of Reiki, energy healing or chakras. No doubt about it, neo-spirituality as a focus and a lifestyle has only grown in influence since the ‘free love’ days of the 60s and 70s, the popularization of yoga from the 80’s through the present, and many worldwide esoteric lineages feeling the call to disseminate knowledge for the enlightenment of humanity and the good of the earth.
Perhaps one of the last and most central spiritual practices of our generation is to turn those spiritual realizations inward to shine the light into our most cherished relationships. Just like everyday life can begin to feel mundane or even like a constant...
