Full Blessing Moon Ritual Blessing Oil DIY Spirit de la Lune

This full moon in Capricorn is a very optimistic and positive one! It will feel like a breath of fresh air after some of the heavier astrological influences of June.

This full moon is sextile Jupiter which adds to the cheerful nature. Mercury went direct and the Sun shifted into Cancer. The sun is high in the sky and this full moon week supports playfulness, pleasure and soaking in the good times of life.

Don’t forget to take time to smell the flowers this full moon week!

The keyword for this card is “contentment” which is a powerful word. Contentment represents being in a place of peaceful satisfaction.

Satisfaction, gratitude, appreciation, and contentment are powerful emotions that bring us right into the present moment where all of our power is.

However, sometimes when we struggle in life, it can be difficult to feel gratitude or appreciation even when we know it will help. That is why contentment is so important.

Where has the Goddess Gone?

secretsoftheserpent

Because of Ignorance humans have struggled.  One conflict after another throughout history.  Through conflict humans have found certain answers that stopped the conflicts, but sooner or later the conflicts come back.  In history conflicts were isolated to certain countries or regions.  Now the world is in conflict.  Because of the world wide web and transportation no one place in the world is isolated.  The world is connected, so now everyone feels the conflicts in one way or another.  Can we figure this out or will we keep going till we finally destroy ourselves?

Who are You?

secretsoftheserpent

Some people want to know where their individuality comes from, but most do not care.  They just mechanically go thru life. They do not want to know the meaning of life.  To most life is just accepted.  My readers are a little different.  They want to know.  In this post we will try to learn about the relationship between ourselves and the outer world.  See if we can learn about who is inside our bodies.

HOW TO RECLAIM POWER FROM YOUR SHADOW SELF

How to Reclaim Power from Your Shadow Self by Krista Mitchell.png

I often make mention of the shadow self here on my blog, and it’s the basis of a full module of training in my Pro Crystal Healer program, due to the immensely painful effect it has on our lives.

That being said, the shadow can be misunderstood or misrepresented as our inner villain, but it’s more closely defined as our wounded self, or wounded warrior.

It is a keeper of all the darker aspects and archetypes of our humanity.

It’s also a big part of what makes us human.

You could think of your shadow as your lower frequency or “lower vibe” self.

It’s the pain, the doubts, the sorrows, the fears, the regrets, the shames, the violence, the hatred, the envy, and the resentments we carry with us through life, and it’s largely formed in our childhood (though we continue to add to it as adults).

Some people in the spiritual community try to inauthentically bypass their shadow selves, through forced positivity, spiritual superiority, or an imposed “love and light” sentimentality.

But the honest truth is that most human beings seek to bypass the shadow. That’s actually a part of the shadow self’s defense system – it wants to be in control, but it does not want to be exposed.

Solar Eclipse in Gemini Lunar Report | Entering the Blessing Moon

The first solar eclipse of the year takes place on the 10th of June in the sign of Gemini. A solar eclipse is an extra powerful new moon because the moon crosses in front of the sun, darkening it’s light. This solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, so not all of the sun will be darkened. Instead we will see a ring of light around the sun.

Solar energy represents the masculine, which is perfectly aligned and supporting the lunar feminine energy. The moon is in between the earth and sun in an exact alignment for a portal to open.

A solar eclipse gives us an important opportunity for a major rebirth. Solar eclipses impact the next 6 months, opening up opportunities to help us accelerate our progress. There are many new possibilities and timelines ahead. You are being asked to make conscious decisions to align to and step into the path that you truly desire.

A solar eclipse opens a portal and creates a threshold for you to cross.

You might feel yourself shifting in major ways this month. Embrace the new you and allow the old you to stay in the past. Remember that it might take some time for things to manifest into physical form. Continue to do the work, trust your intuition and allow the new frequencies to lift you up.

Druid Tree Workings: Exercises for Deepening Tree Relationships

The Druid's Garden

A wonderful tree to get to know! A wonderful tree to get to know!

Trees are wonderful and amazing beings, true teachers, friends, and wonderful introductory guides to nature’s mysteries.  Sometimes though, we don’t realize what a powerful impact different trees have had on our lives.  As one step towards cultivating a deep relationship with trees, this week I offer a series of exercises that can help you explore your memories of trees and see what existing connections you may already have.

These exercises and meditations can help you develop relationships with trees or deepen relationships that you’ve already started. You can do them either as meditations or as freewriting activities.  Discursive meditation or journey work would be appropriate if you wanted to use these as meditation tools. In a discursive meditation, you might meditate on the question or theme given (in each exercise) and work through your thoughts. In a journey meditation, you would use the…

YOUR ROOT IS EVOLVING! CRYSTALS TO HELP YOU ADAPT + THRIVE

Your Root is Evolving: Crystals to Help You Adapt + Thrive / www.krista-mitchell.com

There was something I learned years ago when I was training as a healer: If the energy centre at your root (at the base of your spine) is out of balance, then everything else will end up out of balance, too.

This is because our root is the foundation of our health and well being.

meditating dude no bg.png

Our physical health, yes, but also

  • Our livelihoods, our families, our community relations.
  • Ability to remain grounded, centered, empowered.
  • To be resilient, to endure.
  • To feel safe, secure, provided-for, and strong.

When our root is balanced, we feel confident, capable of handling challenges/stress/obstacles, and optimistic.

Our needs are met, and we feel solid in our place in the world.

But when it’s not balanced:

  • We can feel blocked, afraid, or struggling.
  • We have weak energy, are fatigued and un-grounded, and have compromised immune systems.
  • We can isolate and self-neglect, or overcompensate and look for safety, security, or provision in others.
  • Hoarding, recklessness, aggression, conflict, and defensive behaviour can take hold (and we’ve been seeing A LOT of that in recent history).

If the root energy centre continues to function out of balance, that imbalance vibrates up through our energy system and starts to throw off our other energy centres, too.

5 Ways to Clear Cords During this Eclipse Season

5 ways to clear karmic ties During this Lunar Eclipse

Happy Lunar Eclipse & Honey Moon!

Things are getting a bit intense here as Saturn went retrograde on the 23rd, we enter the Eclipse Season with a super moon and experience Mercury’s retrograde on the 30th.

Saturn, the planet of karma and lessons is retrograde for the next 5 months in the sign of Aquarius. This is a time of karmic rebalancing. What you do during this time can project you forward in many of your goals, but you will need to have the self discipline to follow through. The lessons that come during this time are difficult, but the payoff will be worth it!

Mercury’s retrograde begins on the 30th of May. Mercury retrogrades usually have to do with miscommunications, technological issues, and delays. This one is square Neptune which adds another sense of illusion into the mix. This might make it hard to trust what others say. This could also be a time where propaganda, conspiracy theories or frauds are brought to the surface.
