Super, Black and New

vulture IMG_3966Tonight is a new moon. A super moon. A black moon. Evidently this is a really powerful thing. Sounds impressive. Each new moon is a time to create. As the moon is reinventing itself you have the opportunity to do the same.

Whenever I remember this I think consciously directed thoughts toward the future I hope to create. Sometimes I write them down.

As is often the case, the new moon, the super black moon, caught me by surprise. But I had unknowingly set myself up pretty well. I had planned today to hand over responsibilities that had begun to drain my life force. At the same time I had a meeting scheduled later in the day that was in alignment with a new direction I am choosing to take.

Auspicious indeed.

Then it occurred to me; I should do this everyday. Let go of one soul-sucking, life-force depleting activity, person or situation and replace it with the opposite. Once the heavy hitters are dispensed I can get to work on letting the little negativities go and bring in the small but powerful positivities.

This way it won’t matter where, how big or what color the moon is.

Moon Dance

Half moon IMG_2188There’s just something about the moon. That round luminescent orb in the sky that defies gravity.

So much poetry and lore has made the moon its center; romantic, ominous and mystical. One giant piece of rock has garnered a lot of attention for just sitting there.

For me it’s the cycles that are most mystifying. The moon continues to guide farmers and gardeners in their planting. It determines when the tides go in and out. It is nature’s night light, the keeper of secrets and the granter of wishes. It is a powerful force.

A new moon – absent from view – represents a time of creation. The moon is beginning to create itself anew. The seemingly empty space left by our lunar companion calls out for ideas and creativity to fill the void. While the full moon symbolizes the need to let go, to create space, the new moon asks for our freshly hatched plans.

Tonight we are fortunate to be entering the New Moon phase. As you gaze into the night sky and see nothing but stars or pervading darkness know that this space is your chalk board. You can write, erase and rewrite your heart. Share your deepest desires. Whisper your wishes. Set your intentions. The vast empty night sky is ready to hold each and every thought you cast toward creating your future. Be mindful. Remember, every thought is a prayer, a request.

Take time to visualize and imagine your highest self. Get into that heart space. Feel what it’s like to be your future self. Be there in the present moment. This is no time to play small, this is a gift of powerful energy at your disposal.

What do you want for yourself? Who is your bigger self? Let go of all the excuses and reasons that pop up as you begin to manifest. In the void there is always enough time, always enough money and the conditions are always perfect. So let that go. Now, what is it the Universe can co-create with you? For you?

See yourself. Let go of the process you think it will take to get you from where you are now to that big you. That’s not your job. It’s none of your business. See the big you. The vibrancy, energy and joy. See the ease with which you move through space. See the abundance and prosperity that surround you. See specifics. Don’t judge, don’t calculate. Just feel.

There is a force beyond you than is waiting, waiting, waiting for you to nod in its direction that you’re ready. It’s time.

Take the leap. Trust, believe and let go.
