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.

Aries Full Moon Meditation – A Unique Opportunity

Every full moon is a period of unique opportunity. The spiritual realms are very close to us at these times and we can contact the energy of Light and Love that is channeled into the world.

They form a powerful, energetic triangle of force that carries a tremendous potency.
