D | There's no doubt that this September Full Moon is an extremely powerful portal of consciousness. Not just a Full Moon but a cocktail of Supermoon, Blood Moon, mixed in with a dash of Lunar Eclipse. Full Moons bring to the surface that which is hidden in the depths of our subconscious mind, making it the perfect time to clearly see that which blocks us from prosperity. Remember, prosperity does not instantly equate with money. People can have tons of money but lack prosperity. Coming from the words 'pro', meaning for, and 'spiritus', of the spirit, the heart of prosperity is when we are able to live for our spirits. Then abundance, opportunities, experiences, people, and so forth, come easily to us rather than we chasing after them. And Full Moons light the way for us to see everything that's in the way of our prosperity.
The combination of the Lunar Eclipse and a Full Moon will make this time even more emotional. Just remember, anything that triggers emotion within us is fertile grounds for transformation. We have to dig deep and ask ourselves, Why is this triggering us? What's here to learn? What is my subconscious mind trying to tell me? And the only way out of the the emotional turmoil that resides within is to go through. We spend so much time trying to suppress and avoid uncomfortable feelings which only gives them more power and energy. That which we try to avoid becomes stronger and stronger. If we can use our mindfulness or meditation practice to just BE with the experience of the strong emotion, and let the roller coaster go through its course in a contained, safe space, we'll realize that it was really not as bad as we had been imagining it would be this entire time. All the sabotage, all the habits, all the suppressing we have done to shove down our feelings can be released in moments if we can just check in and FEEL it, let it run its course entirely, and release them.
It may take practice to work with unresolved emotions and to also experience the scale of intensity when it comes to healing the shadows of our souls. In order to do this, we need energy, we need strength, and we need clarity to go through the fires of change. One of my teachers, Sat Jivan Singh, once said: "As fire is the test to gold, adversity is the test to humans." When we can go through the fire, we can experience the alchemical process of change.
I had the blessing to attend an event last night at ABC Home with one of my favorite teachers, Elena Brower, and Vedic Meditation Master, Thom Knoles. What spoke to me most from Thom's talk was when he said, "You can't change habits with verbs or nouns. You can only change them with chemistry." And that is exactly the chemical change that happens when we meditate and start to shift our consciousness, start to change the secretions of the pineal and pituitary glands to shift the entire glandular/hormonal system in the body so we have a more elevated, calmer, and happier experience of life.
One of my favorite kundalini mediations that I practice for at least 3 minutes a day is called Ego Eradicator. It works FAST, helping to bring you into alignment with your Higher Self by letting go of the Ego's chains to keeping us small. Here is a video by the lovely Kia Miller on how to do this powerful meditation. Try it for 3 minutes a day for 40 days, preferably first thing in the morning, and be ready to witness the power of aligning your self with your Self.
