“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Diary
Saturday night will be my next FREE Full Moon Reiki Meditation at 11pm EST.
“As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.” – The Farmer’s Almanac
I like to call this full moon The Spring Maple Moon.
Growing up in the upper Adirondack mountains, my father would often bring my sister and I to our cousin’s Sugar Bush, which is where 100% Pure Maple Syrup is collected, heated and even sampled sometimes with a bit of fresh fallen snow. There are so many happy memories in those woods where we would ride the snowmobiles, walk over icy brooks that were beginning to thaw. When we would bundle up and play all day in the snow…
This will be an excellent night for really asking how can tap into your childish enthusiasms and how you can share your own inner sweetness with your Self & others? Self discovery is essential to a balanced and healthy holistic lifestyle.
As I like to say, “In order to live happy and healthy lives we need to have a happy and healthy relationship with our past, especially with our childhoods. If we can look back at the fond moments, the moments that truly matter; then the trauma, the abuse, and the struggle of childhood can be looked at with more compassionate eyes. Our inner child is set free. If it is allowed to feel what it will in those moments of happiness, it can finally come out of the dark corners of our psyches. By doing so we allow our inner sweetness and goodwill to shine like how the sun can melt snow and like how sap flows from trees in order for sweetness to manifest.”
So, why not get in touch with your inner workings a bit more; find spiritual, emotional, and mental clarity so that you can manifest harmony and warmth of spirit?
So, Happy Full Moon in Virgo friends!
By using the Maple Tree as an example, we will focus on how we too can tap into our reserves of sweetness in order to open untold doors of happiness & health.
Join us from the comfort of wherever you will be at the time. Whether you’re awake, out socializing, working, or even at home in bed; you can attend in spirit by just taking a moment to ponder the following. No one has to meditate. Simply sitting and taking a reflective moment is all that is needed.
What is Reiki? Whenever someone asks what I do, and I tell them that I am a Reiki Practitioner, I often get an odd look of curiosity. I always begin by quoting Usui Sensei, “Reiki is the secret art of inviting happiness into your life.” Reiki is a Japanese method very similar to massage, except your clothes stay on. The point is to facilitate a relaxing atmosphere and environment so that the body can naturally heal itself of physical, emotional, mental, sexual and spiritual pain. It works great for aches and pains, grief and heartbreak, as well as when you lose your faith in yourself. It empowers people and helps to deal with trauma, abuse, and depression. I even use it to help with my patients management who have PTSD, ADHD, OCD, and even PMS. (This normally gets a chuckle). Simply put, Reiki allows you take time for yourself, for peace, for harmony, and for your health. It isn’t a cure, but it does help to heal issues at their core in conjunction with other medical therapies.
I will be offering and sending this unconditional healing energy to anyone who wishes to participate. By liking this post, or joining this event, I am taking that as an affirmative. A simple “Yes” or “No” will be fine. Whether or not you physically attend or meditate on your own is up to you. The energy will be sent regardless, and it will go where it is most needed to each person. I send Reiki with a clear intention that it will only be received with free will and if it is refused will be redirected to the Earth or another person who needs and wants it.
Will you be calling it an early night, and will already be in bed? No worries. When we are asleep we are perfect channelers of Reiki energy. If you wish, you can say the blessing below before bed to welcome the harmony that will be sent to you.
Again, my intention for Saturday night will be to focus on our ability to create sweetness in our lives.
“Everyone carries an atmosphere about him. It may be healthful and invigorating, or it may be unwholesome and depressing. It may make a little spot of the world a sweeter, better, safer place to live in; or it may make it harder for those to live worthily and beautifully who dwell within its circle.”
― J.R. Miller
We will also focus on all those seeds that we planted during the last New Moon. This will be an excellent time for you to meditate and answer some of the questions we posed a few weeks ago. How have you tended your inner heart’s garden? Have you become more considerate of your actions towards others and your Self? Have you begun to shun negative self-talk? Do you find yourself being more grateful for the people in your life?
Our intention/mantra/prayer will be:
It is a good idea to place your hands over your heart chakra, Anahata, as you say the following blessing, light a candle if you wish, and either just sit, or meditate if you’re awake. If asleep, you may say it prior to bed if you wish. Again, when we are asleep we are in an excellent state for healing. It is one of the few times our subconscious can consciously speak to us because we are in an altered state of consciousness. Take note of your dreams the next morning, perhaps you will get a message for an area in your life to focus on and heal. Always feel free to message me privately if you have questions. Namaste~ We are all one after all.
“Thank-you for sending Sweetness for the greatest good of everyone gathered tonight.
Thank-you for sending Sweetness for the greatest good of all who could not make it for this healing.
Thank-you for sending Sweetness for the greatest good of (our/my) home, community, and planet.
May my words be filled with sweetness.
May my thoughts be filled with sweetness.
May my actions be filled with sweetness.
May I acknowledge my past heart breaks and let them go with a warm hug.
May I acknowledge my current heart’s condition and let it be.
May I acknowledge my future heart’s wholeness with a smile.
As the moon softens, may my pain and suffering be released as the moon darkens and darkens.
As the moon softens, may my mind draw upon the peaceful sanctuary of this season, as the moon darkens and darkens.
As the moon softens, may my soul be nurtured with self-love and self-acceptance, as the moon darkens and darkens.
As I begin to travel in the land of Spring, may I relate my journey to the wisdom of this season.
May my spirit soften at the wonder of this night.
May my life flow like warm sap and nourish my Spirit.
Happy Full Moon.
Namaste. Thank-you. Thank-you. Thank-you.”
Just allow the energy to flow for a few minutes until it seems like you have met your mark. Bathe yourself in sweet moon beams as you drift away to sleep.
Now, as participants, if you wish to step it further, you can become a better conduit for this energy by sinking into meditation with me at the same time.
I will be performing the Reiki healing tomorrow, SATURDAY March 15th AT 11PM EST. for about 30-60 minutes.
If you wish, get comfortable, light some candles/incense, put your choice of music on, and meditate with me.
You may even wish to make some hot chocolate or tea, light some candles/turn on your music, and just sit.
***Perhaps for this special night you could take a warmed shot of 100% Pure Maple Syrup!
If you will already be in bed asleep, which is a great state of mind to be in when receiving healing, print out and say the intention above. Or you could even say one of your own making.
I am really very excited about this, and I welcome who ever is interested!
Let’s take some time for ourselves, and meditate together. (Just be sure to correlate with your time zone.)
If you run late by accident, don’t feel guilty. You can enter at any time and leave at any time.
The key is to allow yourself the time to heal. You may even wish to stay longer than the 30 minutes.
I will be gifting the Reiki for approximately 1 hour.
See you all tomorrow under the liminal moon light.
Namaste~ We are all one after all.
