Tomorrow a powerful Supermoon graces us. Are you ready to take inventory, sit with what you find, and shed light on it? Desiree Pais of Benshen offers us insight into this lunar energy and how we can go about releasing what isn't serving us so that we can step into the powerful path we are here to create.
D | Let’s be honest for a minute - the past few weeks have been a tornado of emotions for MANY people. You’re not the only one sobbing to your boyfriends / girlfriends / family / friends / cat. You’re not the only one who feels like everything is falling apart right now. You’re not the only one who feels like your relationships are being tested, like your finances and/or jobs are blowing up in your face, and like your health is at a tipping point. You. Are. Not. Alone.
The planetary alignments right now are activating major awakenings in many aspects of our lives. There are four planets in retrograde right now and we have not just a Full Moon arriving on August 29th but a SUPERmoon. This Supermoon in Pisces is going to light the fire under our behinds to make changes in our lives, changes we have been putting off for far too long. This is a moon of spiritual awakenings but the awakening will only happen if you’re willing to see that every challenge is an opportunity to empower yourself and move forward. And that’s exactly what this moon is asking, if not demanding us, to do.
The ways we have been living - in fears, in doubts, in procrastination, in dishonor, in guilt, in shame - are no longer working for us the way they may have in the past. As a planet, we are evolving exponentially by the day and that evolution can only go two ways: up or down. Going up sounds so much more fun, doesn't it?
This moon is a time to see what is triggering you emotionally because within that is the key to unlocking patterns that have a strong hold on you. If it makes you emotional, you know there is some juice there to work with. It’s time to stop resisting doing the work and begin to move forward so that we can experience this life radiantly, powerfully, and have infinitely more energy to do the things we love - not wasting it on our self-imposed problems (yeah, I know, it sounds harsh but let’s be honest with ourselves…).
There is a major portal for healing, for growing, for expanding, for finally being able to let go of the grips of our egos if we make the choice to be willing to change our ways. We have to take responsibility for what is going on in our lives, the good and the bad, and to know that the “bad” is actually just a blessing if we can begin to see it in a new light. We are being asked to free ourselves from being the victims of our lives and become the conscious author of the life we wish to live. In a moment-to-moment basis, in any situation that arises, we have the opportunity to choose to see things in fear, confining ourselves to very limited experiences, or to choose to see that the Universe will always, always have our backs and support us, proving opportunities we have only dreamed of. We just have to be open to seeing the latter.
Personally, I have been going through so many incredible shifts in my life that I decided I wanted to start journaling again. Funny enough, even though I am a writer, it’s always a challenge for me to keep a journal. Probably some fear that I’m carrying on since childhood that my family would find it and read all about my 4th grade crushes. So in order to inspire myself to not only start journaling but to start creating a miraculous life, I decided to do another round of Gabby Bernstein’s book, May Cause Miracles. And let me tell you - my body, my mind, and my spirit has been so eager and willing (a first for me!) to commit to 40-days of changing my negative and fearful beliefs around money, relationships, and health to positive, abundance-affirming experiences. In just three days, I have noticed such an amazing shift in not only my mind but in my life and prosperity is absolutely moving through me.
To work with this Supermoon and use the momentum of spiritual awakening it brings, I highly suggest trying out May Cause Miracles for the next 40-days. Full Moons are a powerful time to release things we no longer want to experience. On the eve of the Full Moon, make a list of everything you wish to let go of. And then that evening, start the first day of May Cause Miracles as a gift to yourself for having the courage to make changes in your life that will allow you to experience profound happiness, prosperity, and radiance.
