It's Time to Wake Up
May's "Flower" full moon is the biggest and brightest one this year. Not to mention it is also during a total lunar eclipse. Also dubbed the "Blood Moon," it is the second and last "Super Moon," of 2021.
If ever there was a time to sit, reflect and make decisive moves toward change, this is it. On May 29th, we begin Mercury retrograde until June 22nd, but don't be afraid! You will have this handled by then and you’re about to learn 10 powerful spiritual practices to implement between this full moon cycle and the next.
This lunar eclipse and the full moon takes place in the curious, independent, fierce, fiery, and free-spirited zodiac sign of Sagittarius, which will ignite a desire for spiritual growth. Things will be more emotional than usual because the full moon conjunct, and its ruler, Jupiter, is in full effect, but again, you should fear not.
And here’s why...
The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse are at a significant point of transition, and what a perfect time to begin questioning and reflecting on what you should release and accept on your authentic path.
Questions to ask yourself include:
- What bad habits can you get rid of?
- What is blocking you from moving forward?
- Who is impeding your progress?
- Who am I?
Astrologically, this lunar shift is quite powerful, and letting go of fears and replacing them with intentions will garner you the results you are seeking. But there is work to be done—both spiritual and physical.
Remember that our brains are conditioned to act and react to certain behaviors, and breaking free from this pattern comes through meditation and mantras. The result is miraculous in that there is continuity, balance, self-worth, expression, and release. You may even be able to feel your vibrational shift occur.
From May 26th to June 24th's full moon, you are being called to make better choices and dare to see them through. Learn the art of discipline during this time and protect your energy. Our 10 steps will help guide you, but before then, know this: your spirit or soul doesn't have boundaries, and the possibilities for what you wish to create are limitless.
Embracing the philosophies of hope, love, self-value, and internal/external beauty are all choices. So are loathing, fear, and a lack of self-worth.
What matters most is the intentions you focus on and the seeds you plant right now. You don't need to do this on your own; find a support system you trust and bring them into this full moon journey with you as you may feel vulnerable and resistant.
Should you choose to do this solo, have faith that you are strong enough and know that growth is inevitable in all areas you are seeking: relationships, love, money, work, body, and health. It’s time to wake up and show up.
10 Steps To Waking Your Spiritual Soul
When we're children, our innocence is pure, and our hearts are wide open; we jump up and down, make mud pies with kids we don't even know, and say the most insane things.
As adults, we lose sight of how much fun we had, and while we may not want to jump in mud (though many would), the purity behind thought should also have a place within us. How about we use the term "enlightened being" and tap into our youthful exuberance and realize that the universal "oneness" energy and vibration are pretty powerful, and we are all connected.
This full moon, go outside and get connected by doing a silent prayer and repeat the mantra "I am connected to all the good."
When you wake up and realize that you are a divine being and can create miracles in your life, a shift happens. This isn't about religion but tuning into a higher vibration of the divine that lies within you and tapping into that peaceful, loving energy. You needn't seek too far; it's right here and a part of you. Tap into it.
To forgive is to be set free. This impressive super full moon is THE perfect time to release the hurt you're harboring inside. If you need to be forgiven, find a way to reach out, and ask and if it is too much, write it down and either send it or journal the pain and forgive yourself.
Living with pain is no way to live, and we are all doing the best we can with what we're given at any moment. The beauty in this release is that you can create better moments of joy, peace, and deep love. It's a choice. Make a wise decision for yourself.
Never take kindness for weakness. To live in compassion is truly the strongest you will ever be in this life. Empathy is a superpower that vibrates into universal energy. When you harness your feelings toward a higher consciousness of love, you will become a spiritual superhero or a 'spiritual gangsta' in today's terminology.
Waking up to the planet's plight is downright painful at times, but knowing you are amid millions of conscious creators is all you need to join the pack. Then one day, you will wake up and understand, you are what makes the difference.
Want to see real and true miracles unfold in your life? Learn to drive your life in love and charitable awareness because giving without reservation of agenda brings your karmic value to a million.
Find a cause you are passionate about and look for a way to give back. Start small and grow. You will meet the most amazing people, have all of the feels for days, and before you know it, the Universe will open up for you. Your angels never overlook benevolence.
This one is probably one of the most challenging for us because it requires us to see everyone in divine light, treat them with respect, and begin to understand that we are all broken in one way or another. The question is; who or what is the glue?
God, the Universe, or whomever, whatever your higher power and beliefs, can be that glue in so many ways. It is up to us to be there for each other, be kind to all living beings, wake up, and stay awake. Nature always finds a way to correct itself, even through storms and destruction. We aren't too far off that ability within ourselves too.
They say your eyes are the windows to your soul. Make sure you see through them clearly, especially when looking into someone else's. More often than not, you can see when someone is happy or sad, just by looking into their eyes. And vice-versa. There isn't a more profound connection than this.
Be there for them and when you need some soul reprieve, open up, be humble and ask for what you need. Remember what we said above about being "one" with each other and being connected?
There is nothing more beautiful than being there for someone and having them be there for us. You'll be amazed how much support is out there. Tap into your soul energy and wake up those chakras. Joy is always right in front of us and it’s literally in us.
The most beautiful word on this planet, and yet, most people shy away from it. Learning and applying spiritual principles into our lives will give you eternal goosebumps and catapult you to places you can't imagine.
Take the first part of the word "spirit" and wrap your thought around this one word. The dictionary tells us that the human spirit includes our intellect, emotions, fears, passions, and creativity. In the models of Daniel A. Helminiak and Bernard Lonergan, the human spirit is considered to be the mental functions of awareness, insight, understanding, judgment, and other reasoning powers. How yummy.
Imagine exploring and learning everything you can about your spirit, aka your spirituality. Nothing can be compared to opening this door to your soul. Start by listening to audiobooks or videos on Gaia and let it penetrate your soul because it will. Read books, talk to people who understand, go into online groups, and dive in headfirst. The best spiritual swim of your life will have become an Olympian before you know it.
One of the most unfortunate aspects of this one word is that everyone wraps it around a church or religion, and that couldn’t be further from the truth of what it means, which is literally: hope, faith, worship, and wish.
Whether you believe in heaven on earth and beyond or tend to be more resilient or even agnostic, prayer is still potent when speaking into the Universe. The beauty behind worship is that it is akin to meditating, which is proven to reduce stress.
Prayer is powerful, and learning the art of being still and putting your thoughts, feelings, needs, wants, and desires into the unknown, and understanding that you are heard are all you need to know. This takes practice, and practice makes perfect.
Make your sanctuary by creating a place where you feel safe and at peace and get started just by listening to your breaths. Mala beads should become an essential part of your prayer and meditation as they help keep you focused and disciplined. They contain 108 beads for peace, manifestation, and reaching the universal divine energy with all of your most authentic wishes by guiding your focus.
You're aware of the nine ways to wake up your soul, and this one, the perfect 10, is going to be one of the most important as it directly correlates to all of the other nine.
How do you stay positive all the time? Well, you don't. It's a conscious decision to move your attention toward your blessings rather than your plight and find solutions rather than excuses. Practicing the first 9 principles will help you with your mood, attitude, and outlook.
It only takes a moment to flip a switch from anger to understanding, especially when you don't even really understand it at that specific moment. A shift in your thinking can make all the difference. Train your brain to start living in the positive and dispel the negative.
The beauty is that your brain is a muscle that can be trained, and the more you exercise that muscle, the stronger and more focused it becomes in switching gears.
Do not miss this super flower, blood moon on May 26th. You will even see its brilliance the next day. Take your crystals outside or put them in a window and cleanse them with the new energies.
