Intention Setting Ritual for Spring Renewal and Rebirth

White Candle Meditation and Spring  Ritual - TheSassyNation.png

Spring is a time for rebirth and regeneration of energy that has been seemingly dormant over the winter months. This new moon, we're focused on creating and setting an intention to invite our personal re-birth. To re-energize ourselves and re-emerge with a sense of renewed purpose. Notice a theme here? Re- is Latin, used with the meaning “again” or “again and again” to indicate repetition, or with the meaning to go “back”. The intention that you set now will be especially powerful, as this new moon is coming on the heels of a Mercury Retrograde-- the backwards or reverse pattern of motion that we've been in over the past 6 weeks since the retrograde began. This a powerful time for re-igniting latent dreams, lovers..

We've been in a perpetual state of revisiting, reviewing and relearning these past few weeks, and now it's time for our glorious rebirth and re-emergence into the beautiful light.  

Mercury seriously gets a bad rap for knocking everything out of alignment-- from schedules to technology, to people's behavior. For far too long, Mercury has been the fall guy for falling back in the sack with exes and many other poor decisions and words exchanged. Not any longer. We're taking our power back during this new moon as Mercury stations it self direct once again. By reflecting and examining what the universe gifts us during retrograde periods we become more self-aware and capable to grow and evolve through all of life's messiness.

Luna Dolls who are coming to our Luna Rising Retreat in Mexico at the end of the month are invited to delve deep and learn how to transmute Mercury Retrograde's potent energy during our New Moon Circle Call, which you can still reap the benefits from if you, too, are interested in how you can use Mercury as an ally. 

Say 'no more' to victimhood. It's time to be the alchemist and take conscious steps in our evolution process. And this simple candle meditation is one immediate action you can take to spark the flame of your power.

What you need

One candle-- I like white, but choose whatever color speaks to you based on what you need

Sage or Palo Santo

What you’ll do

Step 1: Clear the energy space with your sage or palo santo and light your candle. If it's at eye level to where you'll be seated, that's even better.

Step 2: Get into a comfortable seated position.

Step 3: Close your eyes and breathe in some good prana (life force, energy), and exhale any tension in the body. You can do a quick body scan from your crown, through all of your chakras, if you like. At the base of your spine, at your root, allow yourself to feel grounded to the earth.

Step 4: Once you feel settled, let you eyes flutter open to focus in on the flame from your candle.

Step 5: Allow yourself to feel the fiery energy of the flame. Hold a soft gaze for 1-3 minutes while you continue your inhalations and exhalations. 

Step 6: Ask yourself these 3 questions:
What can I do to physically, energetically and spiritually prepare for this next phase in my life?
Where do I need to create space in my life for this rebirth?
What is my intention to bring forth?

Step 7: Close your eyes and sit with the questions. Don't worry if nothing comes up immediately. Give yourself time to internalize them and let your inner awareness bring the answers to you. You can jot down anything that comes up in your journal or if you spontaneously receive an answer later when your meditation is complete, like I often do, make a note of it in your phone and put it on paper in your journal later.

That's it! You've planted an intention for great change and rebirth. If you're planning to come to Luna Rising, be sure to bring your journal or Empowered Woman Checklist with you so we can revisit these intention(s) that you set when we meet in person under the light of the full moon in the Riviera Maya Jungle.

Creating Healthy, Energetic Boundaries: A 3-Part Video Series

"If she can heal, she can destroy."
The choice is yours, loved one. 
 

Part 1: Setting Boundaries: The Framework

Pt. 2 - Transmuting Toxic Relationships Using Emotional/Energetic Alchemy

Pt. 3 - Energetic Boundaries & Standing Your Ground 

In this 3-part series, we examine self and discuss how to set boundaries from a place of compassion and love. When we allow low vibrational feelings to guide our decisions we create energetic blockages in our path towards manifesting our desires. That’s why it’s soooo important to allow our inner, higher power to guide us as we lay the framework for healthier boundaries (Part 1). 

The power to heal or destroy starts with you. 
In part 2, the discussion continues and we’re talking all about how to transmute toxic relationships.

Finally, in part 3 we'll discuss how boundaries are healthy, necessary and can be transformative, provided they are set with the right intentions. When rooted in compassion and love, standing your ground surrounding energetic boundaries is like the bomb that’s stopped ticking with no threat to detonate. That’s the kind of peace I want, don’t you?

The life we came to this earth to live is one that’s rooted in love from the source of all abundance... with honor to our ancestors, we’re celebrating our divine lineage and vibing up-- right out of the dysfunction of toxic relationships. ✊🏾

An Easy Energy Cleansing Ritual: What it is and why you need it?

energy cleansing-2.png

Want to know how to energetically cleanse your body to let go of things that no longer serve you? There's so many different methods you can use but, if you’re looking for something simple and easy, here is one ritual you can do that is especially powerful around the new moon, or any other time you feel you have energy you’d like to release. The upcoming spring solstice, for example, is the perfect time for rinsing away the stagnant and ushering in the new.

Typically, the new moon is a time to plant seeds that will cultivate during the rest of the moon cycle. However, a seed can only grow in fertile ground. So, sometimes it’s necessary to clear and prep the field first. Doing a ritual is one way we bring reverence for all that is sacred into our modern world. Women of the world are coming back to knowing and tapping into our Divine Feminine power. So, now is the perfect time for us to get in sync with the rhythm of the earth to align with our inner individual and collective strength.
