Rest in Earth’s Embrace

Connect with the earth underneath your body,
she is right here supporting you always.

Allow your awareness to grow roots deep down into the earth.
Feel this vast, peaceful quality underneath you: Solid love. Care. Nourishment.

Now imagine a point inside the earth, 
below your body.

Let yourself be breathed from this point inside the earth,
from this immense depth of knowing.

Breathe in and up into the body; the qualities of the earth.
Breathe out and down; resting into Her embrace.

“To that which lies above, may it inspire us.

To that which lies below, may it sustain us.

To that which lies behind, may it protect us.

To that which lies before, may it guide us.

To that which lies to our left, may it purify us.

To that which lies to our right, may it strengthen us.

To that which lies within, may it remember us.”

New Moon Forgiveness

Phases of the Moon

Look up tonight. The sky will be dark and the stars should be especially bright. This is new moon time.

Our ancestors who lived closer to the earth and in synchrony with the moon and sun cycles, liked to hold healing rituals during this potent new moon time. It is the perfect to time to release and let go of what no longer serves you.

Forgive and Let Go

“We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.”
~Khalil Gibran

The dark phase of the moon is the perfect time to let go of inner darkness and make space for more light and love. Many times we hang onto dark events in our past because we cannot forgive another person. Or we cannot forgive ourselves. When it comes to forgiveness, ritual can be a great help to us. Ritual can help us amplify our intentions. Ritual can put a little extra power into our prayers.

When most people think of rituals, they picture an elaborate high Mass at church, or long drawn out funeral. But ritual does not need to be elaborate to be meaningful. Listed below is a simple ritual to help you forgive and let go.

10 Minute Forgiveness Ritual

  • Create a list of 3-6 things you want to forgive and release.
  • Light a candle.
  • Offer up a short prayer; ask Spirit to help you forgive and let go.
  • Breathe slowly and deeply.
  • As you breathe, offer yourself love despite some mistake that haunts you.
  • Then offer that same love to others who hurt you as well.
  • If tears come, allow yourself to cry and release.
  • Burn your list.
  • Dance to release even more; put on a favorite song and move. Dance and shake!
  • Think of one intention you want to hold for the months ahead.
  • State your intention aloud.
  • As you blow out the candle, thank Spirit for helping you forgive and move on.

In this potent new moon time, let’s choose to consciously let go of past troubles and mistakes. Let’s “lighten up” so we can move joyfully out into the world, radiating our beautiful inner light.
