Meditation

The goal of meditation is to quiet the mind and obtain a state of restfulness. There are many ways to meditate, but the result is always the same; finding a settled place of stillness. While meditation helps to obtain a state of relaxation, it does not bring about a lack of awareness. The most rewarding aspects of regular meditation practice is developing the skill to quiet the churning thoughts of a chattering and busy (monkey) mind.

Meditation on the Full Moon in Leo – A Powerful Season of Eclipses

We have entered the powerful season of eclipses. The new moon, which formed on July 12 at 7:48 PM PDT, was the first of three eclipses occurring in the next four weeks, signaling a time of major endings and beginnings. Eclipses are extra powerful new and full moons; as the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up more closely, cosmic energies are focalized and intensified, accelerating our evolution. Solar eclipses catalyze shifts in our identity and roles; impelling us to align more deeply with our essence, rather than our egos

Understanding Spiritual Illusion and Mental Distortion

Illusion is a degree of distortion of our thoughts. This is due to our imperfect instrument (the mind) attempting to access and interpret intuitive impressions from the Buddhic plane (the source of our intuition).  As we strive to improve our alignment with our soul and the One Life, a meditation practice facilitates contact with the intuitive field. However, we must ‘train’ the mind to enable it to work within the intuitive realm just as we do when we are in training for a sport or vocation.

The Full Moon in Cancer 2018 ~ Responsibility and Choices

The planet Saturn is next to the moon this month during the Cancer full moon strengthening its impact. Saturn and Capricorn ask us to take responsibility for our choices and our lives. Because we are dealing with a Cancer sun we can be emotionally vulnerable. As a water sign Cancer has a sensitive emotional nature and this full moon is asking her to take responsibility for her emotions. She needs to step away from any reactivity and direct her energy inward where she can reflect and get some distance from the drama that may be playing out in her life. She can ground herself in the earth energy of Capricorn. Once centered within herself she will feel safer to open her heart and be vulnerable with others.

The Gemini Full Moon – Shadow, Dreams, and Our Inner Voice

Welcome friends to the full moon, that we are celebrating in the sign of Gemini.  The moon is in a grand trine with Chiron and the North Node. This placement invites us to trust our inner voice and not be silent. We are asked to share our wisdom and truth with honesty, love and authenticity. The planet Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of Scorpio which means we might be facing some challenges from our inner demons, sometimes called our shadow.

The Fiery Energy of the Aries Full Moon

As the Sun enters the sign of Aries we welcome the fiery, initiating energy of Spring and the promise of new beginnings. This month we have several planets that converge to strengthen the initiating impulse, so we might be especially prone to impulsive actions and thoughtless activity.
