August 7th, 2017 is an Aquarius full moon and Lunar Eclipse, bringing some major energetic shifts and changes for those who harness it.
Full moons are about closing old ways of being, forgiving, and releasing past judgments, hurts, and regrets. We have to make space for the new things to manifest and we can't do this with an old pattern of being that no longer serves us. The eclipse is a powerful catapult into what can happen when we believe we are capable of great things and are open to change.
As it is the beginning of the month, I love to set new goals/desires/intentions and work on what better serves me, and let go of what doesn't.
It's like an energetic cleaning, clearing old cobwebs away, so my soul aligns with the truth.
Along with some key points of navigating through this full moon and lunar eclipse, this entry will be my August 2017 reflections to keep myself on track and allow you to create space for intention setting as well.
Let's do this thang!
Full Moon 101:
Lunar Eclipse 101
How can you use these lunar phenomenas to harness the power within yourself- the good, the bad, the ugly- to recognize who you are as a whole? This awareness will allow for greater exploratoration of what is working for you and what totally isn't. We need to get uncomfortable for a breakthrough to happen.
With the full moon and lunar eclipse lessons in mind, I've journaled what does and what doesn't serve me and my intentions to work towards over the next month.
What no longer serves me: Not allowing my time for meditation because I choose my phone, tv, or other less inspiring activity over it. My meditation clears road blocks for me, it allows me to truly go inward, and sometimes it's scary so I deflect to mind-numbing activities instead.
What serves me: 15 minute of meditation daily, listening to inspiring podcasts, reading motivational material, and getting my day started without the flood of info from my phone or tv. Connecting inward to myself and creativity serve me and my passion to the highest.
What no longer serves you?
What does serve you to achieve your greatness?
August 2017 Intentions:
Become grounded with my meditation practice- just Be.
Make self-study a priority daily- make room for growth.
Allow setbacks and see the lesson in them- don't fight them, go with the flow.
Set aside time to research the chakra system and connect the dots to a yoga practice.
When fear creeps in, breathe, feel, then flip the script to joy and surrender.
What are your intentions for the next month? They can be small and internal, or big and external. Every intent is written to bring you closer to your joy and abundance. Take the time to sit with what you want to manifest and bring to life.
Bonus: These are some prompts I ask myself and quietly listen for the answer.
Use these or ask questions of your own! There's no right or wrong way to discover yourself and your patterns. Follow your intuition and listen.
Let me know in the comments what your intentions are for the month ahead and what you will be working on to release! Sharing is another way to bring our ideas to life, so don't be shy.
