August: Virtual Full Moon Gathering

Thank you to everyone who came to my Virtual Full Moon Gathering last night! Here is the replay.

The meditation and breathing we did can be done anytime. If you want to tap into the full moon energy then consider doing it tonight or tomorrow night.

A big thing I want to share with you is how to mix the mystical with the mundane in your life. My 8-year-old walked in during our Lunar Breathing exercise to ask is he could watch Netflix. 

A few years ago, this would have made me so annoyed that he did that during a live event online. Now, I breathed through it and simply shared with everyone that we had a visitor. He even came back a second time!

When you do these breathing practices, meditations, and energetic techniques, you can get into the flow of your own life.

I used to think that once I perfected things it would mean that I would have things so organized that interruptions like that wouldn’t happen.

What I learned is that life still happens and now I react differently to it.

It is a beautiful way to live and I invite you to join me.

Please share what word comes up for you during the meditation in the comments!

Word Meditation: for when you are frazzled or overwhelmed.

Learn an easy way to meditate when you are feeling frazzled or overwhelmed.

It is simple and effective.

Kind of my standard for tips and tools that I like to teach and share.

Simple Meditation

Choose a word that you know that you need right now. Like healing, growth, peace, happiness, strength, vitality, patience, etc.

Imagine that you are connecting the energy of your word while you meditate.

Set a timer or use your fingers to count.

Your words, your thoughts, and your energy are very important in how you experience your life.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed. It can also be easy to shift that feeling to something more positive. You just need a few things:

  • awareness that you need to shift
  • willingness to shift
  • taking the time to do the technique that creates the shift
  • knowing what helps you shift

I hope you add this to your spiritual toolbox.

You are so powerful.

Take time for yourself so you can shine bright!

Other word options are OM or the seed sound for each chakra:

Root = LAM
Navel = VAM
Solar Plexus = RAM
Heart = YAM
Throat = HAM
Third-Eye = OM
Crown = OM or silence

If you choose one of the above, then focus your attention on that chakra area during the meditation.

Otherwise, focus your attention on the third-eye chakra for all other words.

You can learn more about the associations for each chakra in these posts.

Tap Into the Aloha Vibe with this Hawaiian Breath

Can you tell that I just got back from Hawaii? I had the most magical time and wanted to share some of the Aloha energy with you.

While I was there, I woke up early and did my normal breathing exercises to start my day.

A few days in, I realized that I wanted to really embody and project the word Aloha and Mahalo.

I learned that Aloha does not only mean hello and goodbye. It also means:

  • Love, peace, and compassion.
  • A connection with mind, body, spirit.
  • A connection with all other people, living things, and the universe.
  • To be joined with the spirit and the presence of the person you are with or the place you are in. 

So I edited the breath I was doing to use the word Aloha and then I added an evening breath using the word Mahalo, to give thanks for the wonderful day.

After I got back, I discovered that the break down of the word includes breath.

Alo – “to share”
oha – “to show affection or friendship”
ha – “life, breath”

Wow! How perfect!

I am sharing this breathing technique with you today in a short video. (1:44). 

I share this with respect for the Hawaiian culture and gratitude that I was able to experience with my family.

Below are some of my favorite photos from our trip!

Pick a Card – an in-depth reading

  • Scroll down for the cards and messages. 
  • OR you can look at the main card below and pick the situation that resonates with you the most at the moment.

Enjoy your reading!

Messages revealed – left to right!
8 of Arrows – 3rd Chakra – Citrine –

  • Commit to a way with confidence.
  • You have all you need and now it is time to put it out in the world. The best way to do this is to find a way that works for you and stick to it. In the past, you might have thought that doing that would restrict you or that you lacked the confidence or willpower to stay the course. Committing to a path can actually create more freedom than you have ever imagined. Start small and do things daily. That alone will give you confidence.
  • Consider imagining yellow light at your third chakra right above your navel. Place your hands there and breathe into this area daily.
  • Citrine enhances optimism and energy. Either carry one around with you or imagine a citrine stone in your solar plexus.

8 of Bowls – Working with your Breath – Clear Quartz Crystal –

  • Turn towards the divine.
  • Your old ways are not working for you anymore. It is time to turn your back on them and open up to or deepen your connection to the divine.
  • Working with your breath is a quick way to do this. You can simply do deep belly breathing or consider starting your day with right nostril breathing and ending your day with left nostril breathing (simply close the opposite nostril and breathe for at least one minute). This simple act of slowing down and tuning into your breath will open you up to a higher level of living and connection to the divine.
  • Clear Quartz Crystal enhances clarity and spiritual connection. Carry one around with you or imagine it at your third eye center when you are doing your breathing exercises.

3 of Pipes – Hawk – Amethyst – 

  • Dream. Envision. Wander.
  • It is time for you to energize your talent. Think of the future and let go of the past. Do go blindly forward though. Take time to dream and envision. Then look for signs.
  • Ask Hawk to be your guide and send him/her out ahead to find you opportunities. Then listen to your gut, your heart, your intuition when things come your way so you can discern whether or not they are right for you. The universe is leading you.
  • Amethyst enhances imagination and awareness. Put it under your pillow or imagine it at the crown of your head while meditating.
