I feel like it is time for a proper introduction. My name is Kerry Burki. I live in Scottsdale, AZ. I have my degree in Religious Studies & have been practicing yoga, studying the metaphysical arts & spirituality since the late 90’s.
I lived in Chicago for many years where I became a yoga teacher & worked for creative arts companies while getting married (Matt, my soulmate!), having kids (2 sweet boys 6 & 9!), & making a home.
Life was good.
It wasn’t until I moved back to Arizona 5 years ago that things changed. I couldn’t find full-time work as a yoga teacher & I had a close family member in & out of hospitals.
I stopped doing everything I learned. At the end of the day, I just wanted to watch tv & zone out.
I felt lost.
I started changing how I talked to myself. I realized I was saying a lot of mean & untrue things to myself all day long. I started working with affirmations & things went from there.
I started just doing a couple of yoga poses & focusing more on breathing, meditation, affirmations, visualizing, & following the phases of the moon.
By infusing small bits into my day my life started to flow in ways it never had before.
Life became more magical.
I became a Life Coach, launched a magazine, & started Full Moon Yoga classes. In 2017, I did something that made me happy every day for the 40 days before my 40th birthday. I learned to skateboard. I started teaching Full Moon paddleboard classes.
That led me to complete 2 programs as a Metaphysical Adept & a Divine Resonance Practitioner. During my training, I created The Moon & Arrow Lodge which is now all under my name, Kerry Burki.
I want this website to be a nurturing & teaching space. A space to teach the tools that have worked for me.
More importantly, I want you to learn to love yourself and to go after the things in life that make your heart swell like I did.
I’ll be sharing more & I look forward to getting to know you more too.
When you step away from your calendar and lists of “todos” to pay attention to the cycles of the moon it allows room for magic to enter your life and increases your ability to connect with something much larger than yourself.
Below I share the energy related to each moon phase and how you can set an intention and work on making it a reality during the moon cycle.
You do not have to set an intention with each cycle. It is really powerful to simply notice each phase. It really helps you get out of your head and into the present moment.
Learn how to honor yourself and connect to the moon’s phases:
The New Moon is when you can’t see the moon in the sky. It is always in the same astrological sign as the sun. This is considered the beginning of the lunar cycle. A good time for setting new intentions and starting new endeavors.
Take some time for yourself on the new moon (or the 3 days after) and relax. Maybe 5 minutes or 30 minutes. If you go outside, notice the air, the sky, the ground.
Ask yourself if there is an intention that you would like to set for the next month. Maybe it is a way of being, doing more or less of something, or even drawing something into your life like more love or career opportunities.
Write this intention down, speak it out if you desire, and envision it. Feel it.
The Waxing Moon is the phase after the new moon and is also called First Quarter Moon.
During this phase of the moon growing and expanding, take some time to imagine how it would feel if your intention was a reality in your life and then take inspired action on making it a reality.
