Here we are at the Full Moon! Not only a Full Moon, but one sporting a Lunar Eclipse! Much like the Solar Eclipse New Moon a few weeks ago, this Full Moon we will be given an extra special energetic boost due to the Lunar Eclipse. Emotions may run high so be prepared… for anything to happen! If you experience some powerful emotions your best course will be to avoid resistance, which we all know is futile anyway. Stay calm and receive what you are given with the spirit of gratitude and all will turn out just fine. Don’t forget that the Universe has always got your back.
Some people will swear up and down that the Full Moon brings out the crazy in people. I will argue that the crazy is always out there, energetically, it’s just that during the Full Moon you become more aware of it.
Think of it like this… You’re in your car and your driving along the open highway. I’m having a great déjà vu right now of Route 66 headed east through Arizona! You’ve got your favorite mix CD blaring as loud as you can stand it. You’re clipping along at least 55mph. You are overcome by the beautiful sunshine and you crack the driver’s side window to let in some fresh air (Crescent). There’s a whoosh sound as the air starts to make it’s way into your car.

Welcome to the Waxing Gibbous Moon phase! Hey, we’re getting close to the Full Moon now! So much closer… but not quite there yet! That’s how it feels when you’re growing. I welcome growth in my life, because it is through my growth experiences that I evolve. I understand that I am not just evolving for my own soul’s benefit, but I am evolving for my entire species! This excites me. I am a growth junkie, really. It’s why I spend my days creating stuff to share with you. You think it’s about you? Well, it is, but it’s also about me. Everything I create for you I have tested on myself first. I’m my own best lab rat. This moon phase is extra special to me, because I was born under a Waxing Gibbous Moon. So, basically, growth is part of my lunar nature.

So, back to you and your growth… How did it go over the past few days? Now is the time for some reflection, under the light of the Waxing Gibbous Moon. You took an exciting action recently that tossed you outside of your comfort zone. Ask yourself these questions in regard to the results of the action, but remember not to be Continue reading
Here we are at the First Quarter Moon phase. What did you discover over the last few days during the Crescent Moon phase when you started saying, “yes!” more? What opportunities were delivered to you through your positive interactions? Now is the time to take inventory of any and all possible paths that have been presented and choose a purposeful action.
Remember the Game of Life? I used to love playing this game with my family. We had a stack of board games and on game night I would run and grab The Game of Life. It was my favorite and I didn’t mind how long it would take to get through the game, but other members of my family were not as eager to sit in a chair for the hour minimum it often required, so when I would bring it to the table I was often greeted with a few groans. If you’re not familiar with the game, I’ll take a moment to get you up to speed… So, there are these little car game pieces that you get and you are a peg person that sits in the car. At the beginning it’s just you and a windy road with several forks in it ahead of you. Each square ahead gives you instructions, which are basically life events to “experience.” The game is a good metaphor for what I’m suggesting because at the very beginning of the game you are presented with a big choice, whether to go left or right. Likewise, at the First Quarter Moon, you are presented with a choice. You need to choose one actionable item. And, it’s one that once you get to the end of the game and realize as you look back, made all the difference. Continue reading
Often times, clients come to me with questions about their creative flow. They are particularly looking for ways to get back into the flow of their own creativity. They feel like they were in the flow and then suddenly they weren’t. Something feels amiss. They long to feel like they did when they first began a creative project, full of enthusiasm and excitement for what might unfold. Somewhere along the way, they “lost” it, and they can’t seem to find a way to get it back. Sometimes they seem a little surprised when I respond with: “When was the last time you looked up and asked the moon for help?”
Today begins a total Solar Eclipse and a New Moon! This presents me with the perfect opportunity to start an in-depth discussion about your creativity and how it relates to the cycles of the moon. When there is a Solar Eclipse paired with a New Moon you are presented with an amplified energetic opportunity. You can think of a Solar Eclipse as a giant reset button. The New Moon presents you with an opportunity to start something new, or refresh an old project. So in combination with the Solar Eclipse, you get a supercharged reset button to play with as you begin something new. Even if you are here with me in Las Vegas and can’t see it, that eclipse is still out there happening and that energy is available to us all!
Take a moment right now to ask yourself a few questions… How in tuned are you with the cycles of the moon? Are you surprised when you look up and suddenly notice the moon is round and full? Do you think, “Oh, look at that moon!” before casually forgetting about it again? Or do you track the moon, with your eyes and your soul. Do you feel its phases like the phases of your own psyche and emotions. Does your body swell when the moon grows full? Do you retreat into the darkness when the moon is in the shadow of the earth? Do you feel a closeness to the moon like your own inner knowing, like it is a part of you and you are a part of it, working in perfect synergy together? Continue reading
Your thoughts are real. They have energy attached them, energy that manifests in all ways. Your thoughts can pull you into a downward spiral, or they can spiral you upwards into elated ecstasy. It’s all about your present perspective and which direction your thoughts are pushing the energy. Shifting from one direction to the other can sometimes feel profound and at other times feel hardly noticeable. The smallest things can create the shift.
For example, say you are having a great day, you are looking forward to an important meeting and you are eager to make a good impression on the group of people you will be talking to. You start heading for the door and you suddenly realize your keys are not where you thought they were. You have misplaced your car keys. You start scrambling to find them, and with every minute that goes by, you are risking your chances of arriving to your meeting on time. Now you are late and you are focused only on the possible negative consequences of the present moment. All of that good energy you were feeling a few minutes ago is suddenly beginning to move in an unexpected direction… if you allow it to. Continue reading
