Moon Phase Last Quarter Letting Go & How To Release

posted in: Moon Phases | 0

 

LQ. It is the Last Quarter moon today. See the moon high in the southern sky in the morning.

Be sure to scroll down! I am sure you will find something wonderful!
 
It is time for soul searching and reaching a turning point with recent insights. Feelings are signals. Now that the issue is identified, it is time to let go, to release, be honest with the issue to face.
 
When we are told to “release” something, what does that mean?
 
How do we release something? I rarely find that a fleeting thought for a few seconds will do the trick.
 
NAME THE THING
In the Prepare for a Successful New Moon post I mentioned this time in the moon cycle brings up insights about a current Thing manifesting as a mental struggle and tension.
 
Now that the Thing has a Name, am I the only one who is asking “What do I do with that”? It is human nature to look for a solution.
 
HOW TO RELEASE
The first step is to have an attitude and willingness to believe that there is a solution. Reminds me of the phrase, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” This means having a frame of mind to receive an answer or solution.
 
BOLO for CLUES
When that is achieved, be on the look out for clues that may come from any type of source. The positive attitude and willingness will allow you to do that and recognize that it is an answer.
Be creative to find methods of releasing. Here are a few ideas:
 
HO’OPONOPONO

This ancient Hawaiian spiritual system has a delightfully simple method to perform a forgiveness ritual as a method to heal yourself.
 
FLOWER ESSENCE
These web sites are excellent sources for flower essences:
 
Desert Alchemy

Bach Flower Essences

Rescue Remedy
https://www.amazon.com/Bach-Original-Natural-Essence-Dropper/dp/B000RFTCZW
 
HERBAL
I like to use everyday herbs for helpers as well. Take 3-5 drops of an herbal extract on the tongue for a spirit dose. Here are a few:
 
Black Cohosh for accepting change and understanding emotional patterns. Opens the heart.
 
Echinacea for feelings about past traumas. Opens to joy. For denial issues and release old patterns.
 
Lemon Balm for anxiety and elevate the mood. Centering and calming. Lets out suppressed pain and rage.
 
BODY WORK
Any kind of body work helps to release old patterns. Massage, yoga, walking, acupuncture, chiropractic, swimming, sports. Moving the body allows energy and emotions to move, too.
 
PRAYER and SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
The important word for any spiritual system is “practice.”
Prayer, meditation, shamanic journeying, goddess rituals, clairvoyant reading, wicca, reiki, Buddhism – there are so many possible now. Do you have a practice?
 
Here is a meditation practice link with the chakras with Jim Self:

Moon Phase Last Quarter Lunar Cycle Today

posted in: Moon Phases | 0

 

LQ. The lunar cycle today is the Last Quarter waning moon. See the moon high in the southern sky.

LQ Moon phase and Emotions

There’s been some soul searching going on for a few days. You may feel like you want to give it all up and it is hopeless. You are empty and have no control over anything that is going on.

Yes, the message is a clear one: it is time to give it up. I mean it! Give up what is useless, what is not working, what has outlived any kind of constructive return. Let it go. It is time.

Welcome this time as a necessary part to getting where you want to go. If you ignore it, it will come back in another form.

What you have been pushing under the rug for a couple of weeks is up on the top of the list now. What has been repressed is trying to bubble up to be dealt with now. Only you will know what that is and you are ready for it.

Peer fearlessly into your darkest secrets. It is only between you and yourself. Be honest, but kind as well.

LQ Moon phase and Mind

Each part of the cycle is important, and some parts are more important than others. This is one of those important times.

Working with the processing now benefits what goes on in the later part of the cycle. It feels difficult, but the cycle supports the doing of it now. It will not last too long!

Make a little room in the normal mind-chatter for a breeze of spontaneous and intuitive thinking.

Find an activity to let your mind clear. Join left and right brain functions together – know that it is possible to use the best of both sides.

LQ Moon phase and Work

Mental machinations have certain value. When used in combination with intuition, the value magnifies.

Release the mental process and allow for some downtime. Quiet the inner critic. Let mental uncertainty be a stepping-stone to move out old ways of thinking that are no longer useful.

“What’s the use?” could be an important part of your thinking now. Take simple actions rather than indulge in thoughts of uncertainty or worry. Clean out your desk and prepare to make a fresh start.
