It is ritual season! Well, it always is but we have so much coming up in the next month and a half.
In September, we have a New Moon in Virgo on the 17th and Fall Equinox on the 22nd. Then in October, we have 2 full moons! 2! One on October 1st and one on the 31st. A full moon on Halloween! I love it! There is also a New Moon in Libra on October 16th.
So many opportunities to gather your supplies and shift your energy! To help you make the most of this season, I am hosting an online workshop called:
How To Create Your Own Rituals
Learn all about the supplies, timing, place, deep work, and intentions that go into creating personalized rituals. I’ll also show you how to use my Free Spirit Guidebook to create rituals (This will be a bonus so no need to have the book for the workshop).
We will talk about crystals, lunar phases, essential oils, breathing techniques, meditations, seasons, elements, and more so you can create your own rituals throughout the year to help you live in your most harmonious life flow.
When: Wednesday, September 16th, 2020
Where: Zoom – Link will be sent out after you register.
Length: The workshop will be about an hour with half an hour after for questions.
Supplies: Bring what you have when it comes to crystals, essential oils, incense, herbal bundles, candles, chimes, oracle and tarot cards. Plus, a journal to take notes. Plus, your copy of my Free Spirit Guidebook (optional)!
Cost: $20 suggested (Pay what you can, no judgment!)
Below is a ritual that you can do for any new moon. Before we get to that, I am sharing tips to make this special to the New Moon in Leo. Leo is a fire sign and is associated with the lion.
In my Free Spirit Guidebook, I share that the energies associated with lions are powerful, strength, personal power, assertiveness, domination, regal, and king-like.
Which one do you need to tap into over the next moon cycle?
For me, it is personal power.
If you have essential oils, then pick one based on the energy you want to tap into. I might pick Cedarwood or Frankincense. Or pick it based on the color of the bottle!
Grab stones that remind you of the fiery energy of Leo, like citrine, red jasper, tigers eye, or carnelian.
Gather your supplies and find a quiet place to sit.
Place your stones on your altar, in front of you, or around you. (Cleanse them before if needed.)
Tune in with your breath. Deep breaths or Lunar Breath (left-nostril breathing) for 1 to 3 minutes.
(Optional) If you have a ritual or taper candle, you can anoint the candle by rubbing your essential oil on the outside. Keep the energy you chose in your mind as you do this. No candle? You can simply diffuse or inhale the scent during the ritual.
Light your candle with your word, energy, or intention in mind.
Write down the energy you want to bring in or your intention for the next lunar cycle.
Hold your cards in front of your heart and ask God.Universe/Spirit and your guides to help show you how you can embody or manifest this in your life.
Shuffle and pull a card.
Journal about the message you receive.
Gaze at the candle flame and let your mind relax.
Then close your eyes and see if any more intuitive guidance shows up.
Write down any actions you can take to make your intention a reality.
Pick a stone and empower it with your intention. Hold it in your hand and imagine it being filled with white light then say your intention.
Close out your ritual by returning to your breath.
Give thanks to God/Universe/Spirit, your guides, and yourself.
Blow your candle out. (Light it during the next moon cycle to tap into your intention or again on the Full Moon.)
Carry your stone with you or place it somewhere special to remind you of the energy you are shifting.
You can check in daily with your intention or simply during the waxing phase, the full moon, and the waning phase.
Whew! That was a lot longer than I intended it to be. Lol! Play around with it and make it your own. You can use all of the lessons in my Free Spirit Guidebook to create your own rituals.
Enjoy taking this time for yourself on the new moon!
It is so easy to have your alarm go off, grab your phone, roll out of bed, get coffee, get cranky, and then wonder why your day went the way it did. Especially after during this wacky pandemic!
If you are looking to put some magic into your mornings or your kids are going back to school like mine are and you need a magical morning routine then this post is for you!
I used to hate mornings.
That means I know things have to be quick, easy, and fun in the morning in order for me to do them.
These tips will help you feel guided, sparkly, intuitive, and free-spirited!
If you have more to add, please share in the comments and spread the magical morning love!
4 Tips to Make Your Mornings Magical
Ask for Guidance
Before you get out of bed, even before you open your eyes, you can ask for guidance from the divine. You can connect with God, Universe, Spirit, Mother Earth, or any other way you address a higher power or force. Then simply ask: “Can you please guide me, help me, lead me, move me, show me?” Any variation or all of those. Then stay open to receiving guidance during the day.
Sun Breath or Solar Breath
Also called the Pingala Nadi Breath. Your right nostril is connected to the solar nadi (or channel) in your subtle energy body which is associated with vitality plus masculine and warming energy. Use the first two fingers on your left hand to close your left nostril. Begin breathing deeply through your right nostril. Practice for 3 rounds or 1 or 3 minutes. Then release the left nostril and breathe deeply through both nostrils. Pause and notice how you feel. This breath is featured in my Free Spirit Guidebook.
Pick an animal guide for the day.
You can use the printable animal guide oracle cards that come as a bonus with my Free Spirit Guidebook to shuffle and pick a card as shown in the video. You can also ask for an animal to show up during your day or for the name or vision of one to pop into your mind. Once you see or think of one, then look up the meaning and energy associated with that animal and figure out how that energy can help you in your life right now.
Face east and greet the sun! Moving your body is a great way to start your day. It helps you get out of your head and release stress. If you are not familiar with Sun Salutations then simply watch this video I made a while back sharing different variations to get your morning started right. ***For a simple pick me up you can stand with your palms touching in front of your heart, inhale and lift your arms overhead, exhale and fold forward and touch or reach for your toes (bend your knees slightly), then inhale and roll all the way up, and finish with your palms back at your heart. Do this 3 times and start your day!
Just picking one of these things to do each morning will help make your morning magical!
