Self Care Fridays: Purge and release…


Peace Soulstars,

With this week starting off with a Supermoon Monday evening, I’ve been pretty moon-obsessed.  I’m learning more about the strong influence of energies from the moon.  I’ve even been moved to take epsom salt baths in the moonlight as my windows allow much light to come through.  The type of influences depend on the cycle because they each serve a different purpose.  Read more about them here.  You can also just google or read books on moon cycles but the site in the link is insightful, direct, thorough, and informative.

A few months ago, I started doing moon rituals (specifically, new moon, full moon and black moon) to help me in my quest to release what no longer serves me to make room for what does serve me.  I do the New Moon rituals to set new intentions after clearing the old with the full moon rituals. They’re completely separate rituals.  I find these to be very effective as I am noticing results which are gradual and different for each individual.   For me, it’s about renewing my mind, body, and soul through a process of rebirth.  So, I’m preparing for my rebirth because well…Why not?  I’ve been tired of living in the matrix, relying on external influences to determine my reality.  I’m taking control of my reality by removing the old ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving which keep me stagnant.   I also feel that it is a more effective way for me to become more connected to God, the universe and source energy.  God cannot move in my life if there is clutter.

Purge and release is key to ridding yourself of clutter.  This stands for internal and external clutter.  So, yes.  It would be advisable to clear your immediate space at home and your office/workplace space but do what you think is best.  From my experience,  covering all fronts provides more balance.  The ultimate goal here is to reach a level of homeostasis which suits you.  Simply put, anywhere you spend a good amount of your time needs to be clear of clutter but these things take time.  Pace yourself and start with the area of life that needs work in this present time to avoid overwhelming yourself.

Whether you do or don’t use moon rituals you may find it helpful to find some form of intervention that will suit your needs and be most effective.

Love and Light,
