It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are…to be nobody-but-yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” - e.e. Cummings
The Full Moon in Aries is ruled by Mars, the Warrior. Take on the courageous battle against the Overculture. Throw off the demons of limiting beliefs, the robots of past programming, and the ghosts of emotional imprints.
Open to your true self - the one connected to nature, to essence, to soul and Source. That self may feel very far away, but s/he’s there waiting to be acknowledged, ready to live FULLY. I promise.
It takes daily practice. I’m no expert, by any means. My mind leans towards oppression and repression and sometimes depression, particularly when stressed or overtired. Isn’t it crazy how we perpetuate the insanity within?! But. Movement helps. Meditation helps. Mudras help. Friends help.
In the Guided Meditation, we work with Kespana Mudra to release negative energy and outside influences. This is especially useful when you are feeling low or entangled in negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs. Only hold it for a few breaths, as you release the heavy influences and open to fresh energy pouring in.
To practice Kespana Mudra, place your index fingers flat against each other and clasp the rest of your fingers together, crossing your thumbs. Completely relax your hands so there is a hollow space between your palms. Point your index fingers down towards the earth if you are sitting, or down towards your feet if you are lying down.
Then, release the mudra and rest your hands, palms turned upward on your lap, opening the doors and windows of your mind, your heart, your body, your whole being to the fresh energy moving through.
As the Full Moon in Aries ripens, release the negative self-talk and limiting beliefs; open to healing possibilities, open to the True You, bright and full.
Full Moon Blessings,
