Can You Feel This Full Moon Energy?

Can you feel the Full Moon Energy?

The energies have been strong the past couple of days and especially with the 11:11 portal yesterday. I have had mystical and emotional dreams and at the same time felt deep grounding.

The Full Moon today helps us complete an emotional cycle related to Taurus which is the first earth sign. It is ruled by Venus and is our physical and tangible life which is grounded into earth and our senses. It is about physical pleasures and assets.

The opposite of Taurus is Scorpio which leaves the physical world and dives deep into the inner realms of our emotions, deep and mystical dimensions and karmic wounds. Sun is in Scorpio and reminding us to merge and unite our physical experience with the deeper and spiritual experience.

Mercury is retrograde and traveling very close to the Sun right now, which also highlights our thought patterns. The asteroid Vesta is conjunct the Moon and brings in energy of devotion and clarity. We are asked to also create a stable and patient relationship with our body and with Mother Earth.

These are the areas which affects your Sun/Ascendant at this Lunation:

Aries: physical and material matters as well as the body
Taurus: the Self
Gemini: Spiritual and hidden areas
Cancer: Friends, groups and organisations
Leo: Career and status
Virgo: Higher learning and long distance travel
Libra: Hidden areas and secrets/ loans and the psyche
Scorpio: relationships and partnerships
Sagittarius: Health and daily work/routine
Capricorn: Children and love
Aquarius: home and family
Pisces: communications

Happy Full Moon!

MUSINGS | The Joy of Loneliness, by Jeff Foster

“I am lonely. So very lonely,” she told me one day.

“Please, tell me of your loneliness”, I said.

“Nothing can help me, you see. No person. No substance.
No experience the world has to offer.
Everything offers only brief respite.
I soon plunge back into my own loneliness.
Where nothing and no-one can reach me.

On this tiny planet spinning in infinite night,
I am lonesome. I feel far from wherever things are.
I have not been able to escape this feeling.
I think it has been with me since the beginning of time.

But then, I tell myself, I must turn towards this desolation.
Let me no longer be ashamed or frightened of my alienation.
Let me own it, hold it close.
And let me cry out into the clear air:
I AM LONELY!

Let me hear the power in my own cry.
Let my song reverberate throughout the whole damn world.
Let all my lonely brothers and sisters hear:
I AM LONELY!

And then, in my loneliness, I am not alone.
In my desolation, I am together with everyone.
With all those lonely hearts.
Separate, but never apart. Beating together.
Divided, but indivisible, from the sun, the sea, the sky, the moon and her madness.

There is dignity in my loneliness, I tell you.
It is so alive. So present.
It keeps me close to my humility.
It reminds me of the nearness of miracles.

No, I do not want to lose my loneliness!
I wish to be lonely for the rest of my days.
Lonely like the oceans. Lonely like a star.

Love me, please, but do not take away my loneliness!”

Oh, she taught me so much about love!

Shamanism | Spiritual Cleansing Using an Egg ~ Shaheen Miro

Spiritual cleansing is the practice of removing and clearing away negative or misaligned energies from the Aura or energy bodies. We are multifaceted beings composed of body, mind, heart, and spirit.

Meditation | The Devi Prayer – HYMN TO THE DIVINE MOTHER (20 mins.)

The Devi Prayer is a Mantra evoking the 108 Names of the Divine Mother.

 

In English:

The Divine Mother is everywhere.

She is in everything.

She is the Divine Essence that lives within all beings.

Her domain is the field of life, for she gives

to all beings the sustenance that is needed for life.

Her beauty lives in the natural world,

and spans the universes in all their splendor.

She has been called by many names,

for all traditions recognize Her.

Into each consciousness the knowledge is given

of the sacredness of life.

This sacredness IS the Mother.

She is the holy generator of the physical world,

joined to the heart and soul of every living thing.

All of the Earth is one with Her.

All beings of the Earth owe their life to Her,

for she is the Mother of all, the One who bestows

all gifts of life.

Her gifts come to the deserving and to the

non-deserving alike, for the sun does not choose

upon whom to shine.

She is the source of Divine blessing, the part

of the Oneness that bestows the graces that fill life.

We have not seen Her because her being is

cloaked in silence.

She emerges now as part of the Oneness where

she has always resided, blessing all, giving to all.

All who bow before Her are sustained by the life

within them.

All who honor Her are sustained by life’s gifts

both within themselves and beyond.

The purpose of existence is to join with Life that lives

in all dimensions and all realms of being.

It is the Mother that creates this evolving,

this unfolding journey,

for she is the fabric of Time itself,

the means by which all things grow.

She is the template for life that exists within Her —

the substance and form of all that shall ever come to be.

May all be blessed by the blessings of the

Divine Oneness.

Energy Update | October 2, 2019

Things are literally shifting in your favor. Every single thing that is happening in your life right now is a nudge, a sign, a calling to move forward into your desired state. Don’t attach yourself to anything that’s not lifting you higher. This is a time to step up and step into where you’re headed. You make the claim not only on a mental level, but through action. Everything you associate yourself with is an energy you’re saying you accept in your life. Is it lifting you higher or keeping you stagnant? Are you moving upwards in your mind? Habits? Choices? This is what that feeling you’ve been having is all about. A feeling that something has to give. Well your blessings are here. It’s already with you. You can choose to recognize it and enter a new path. Associate your mind with something greater. Don’t be controlled by few habits, certain situations, the past, or things that no longer lift you up. You have to take your attention back and direct it towards what you want. You are the power that choices what and who you share your life force with. Be bold today. Cut it out. Cut it off. It’s a new month and you can finally decide to get better. The greatest feeling is seeing all your self-work and self-investment pay off. It’s all happening for you today and you can claim that as your truth now. As s new month, set your intention for what you want to manifest and create by the end of this month. Set your intention on the renewed you and the renewed mindset. Where would you be? What would you be doing? Feel that as your truth. It’s time to make this month consciously a success. Declare it. Claim it. Make the choice!

Close your eyes and visualize your divine beauty. Release all toxic energy and take in the energy of love. Draw a picture in your mind where you are complete. See your higher-self ascending to a place of peace. Walk with the great masters in a circle of protection. Let go of the old ways of fear and control. Surrender to love, beauty, and peace…

Neuromedicine | Human brain hard-wired for rural tranquillity

Humans may be hard-wired to feel at peace in the countryside and confused in cities – even if they were born and raised in an urban area.

According to preliminary results of a study by scientists at Exeter University, an area of the brain associated with being in a calm, meditative state lit up when people were shown pictures of rural settings. But images of urban environments resulted in a significant delay in reaction, before a part of the brain involved in processing visual complexity swung into action as the viewer tried to work out what they were seeing.  […]

7/27/2019 Shem Angel Operation

Frater S- Musings on Magic and Mysticism

20190727_194026.jpg

On Saturday July 27th, I completed a Shem Angel operation, and figured I would share my process. Instead of creating a talisman to ground the energy of the Angel or give it a physical form through which to work, I used my Shem Angel card to accomplish this task easier. In all fairness, I really did put a lot of time and effort into creating each of these cards, so I hope that this would have been in at least some small way appreciated by the Angel.

According to the records of Ambelain, Yeialel (יילאל) rules July 27th, so I looked up the information in my personal compilation of material and saw that this Angel “protects against sorrow…and heals the sick”. I have a prayer list that I compile through a small network of online friends in the Independent Sacramental Movement and Gnostic communities, so I figured I would…

REIKI | HEALING SESSION (3 hours)

Similar to recharging a battery, Reiki is the channeling of high-vibrational energy into you aura, chakras and meridians.

Reiki is is a natural tool that can be used to help us cope with the stresses of every day life, and works on all aspects of a person by bringing the mind, body and spirit back into beautiful alignment. Reiki works on all planes – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

It has been proven that receiving Reiki affects brain waves by transforming consciousness in the same way that meditation does – the breath deepens, stress levels in the body drop, oxygenated blood flows more freely, aiding in the detoxification of the body + mind.

When you receive a Reiki healing, you are being brought back into a state of harmony with the universe. Its calming effect will leave you feeling lighter, happier and connected. Reiki is a wonderful tool to use alongside modern medicine and other therapies, as it supports the physical body during the healing process.

The 3,000-year-old secret to a successful business?

Since ancient times, sailors have believed that painting a blue eye onto their boats will protect them and ensure a successful voyage. In modern Turkey, fishermen continue this tradition by decorating their boats with the nazar boncuğu, eye-shaped talismans made from blue glass. The nazars are used to ward off the evil eye and protect the believer from jealousy and ill will.  […]

A depiction of the Dark Night of the Soul: Ce Que Je Suis by angelitonegro on Deviant Art

With so many of us feeling a bit hopeless these days, I am reposting this small essay on the Dark Night of the Soul.

I read a short blog post the other day that made me sad…and sympathetic. It was by a young woman who felt she had lost the mystery of her Pagan path. The power of the rites had flown. She doubted. Her anguish was palpable in what she wrote.

Thismay have been the first time thathad happened to her.

Yet I can guarantee that, if we follow any spiritual path for a sufficient length of time, this same thing will happen to each of us. At some point, the mystery dries up. The excitement dies down. The thrill of discovery is not asthrillingas it once was. Usually, this doesn’t happen…

Nā Manāʻo | The Adorable Story of “Telling The Bees”

“The Bee Friend”, a painting by Hans Thoma (1839–1924)

There was a time when almost every rural British family who kept bees followed a strange tradition. Whenever there was a death in the family, someone had to go out to the hives and tell the bees of the terrible loss that had befallen the family. Failing to do so often resulted in further loss such as the bees leaving the hive, or not producing enough honey or even dying. Traditionally, the bees were kept abreast of not only deaths but all important family matters including births, marriages, and long absence due to journeys. If the bees were not told, all sorts of calamities were thought to happen. This peculiar custom is known as “telling the bees”.  […]
