Full Moon Ceremony

I am not associated with any of the new age belief systems. Though I suppose pagan comes closest. I believe in the ultimate power that is both male & female depending on the need of the moment. I believe in Father Sky & Mother Earth, I also send prayers to the other elements if I need their help. My only rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

But... lately, the moon has been calling me so I've been working on a full moon ritual. I have debated rather I should share it here but I need to I think.

To begin with, each full moon has a name; the May moon appropriately enough is called the Flower Moon. 

The full moon ritual is for releasing or purging the things in our lives that no longer serve us such as addictions to food, drugs, or sex, relinquishing suffering involved in hurtful relationships, discharging physical and emotional pains, etc. source
A Full Moon ritual requires three things:
1) A sacred space
2) A piece of paper & pen
3) A thing to hold a small fire & to light it

A sacred place is anywhere you want it to be but outside surrounded by nature is best. I do not do a huge ceremony to create a sacred place. I stand or sit depending on how my legs are feeling. I close my eyes and imagine light swelling up from the earth and spreading out in a circle around me and my tools. I then imagine the same light creating a wall around the circle that is just a little taller than me. Breathe in, Breathe out "It is done." Keep this light bubble with you throughout the whole ceremony.

You can perform the next part of the ceremony beforehand but I suggest you wait until after the sacred space is in place. Sit and think about all the things in your life you need to get rid of as mentioned above. Think about your choices at this moment and choose one. Write it on the paper using more than one or two words, you need to make it as clear as possible.

Once it is written light it on fire and put it in the bowl or whatever to burn. Make sure it burns completely to ash. When it is completely burned you have two choices. Take it outside and bury it for Mother Earths help in getting rid of it or release it to the air if you want Father Sky's help. I usually choose Father Sky.

After you have released your addiction to the air or earth, thank the god or goddess for their help in overcoming it. Release your sacred light back into the earth where it came from in the reverse order you created it. Visualize it slowly draining back into the ground first lowering the walls and then the circle shrinking until it has been absorbed back into the earth.

You may feel lighter after the ceremony like a burden has been lifted from your shoulders, this is as it should be because you have released something from your mind, body & soul that has been weighing you down. If you have time and it is a mild night you can sit in the moonlight and allow it to energize you by taking a moon bath. Just like a regular bath except with light and no bubbles. 

Oh, I should say clothed or naked your choice but naked allows the light easier access to your body.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
