Set Your Intentions For Positive Change With The Black Super New Moon

The end of this month brings a Black Super New Moon on July 31 (or Aug 1, depending on where you live) - “black” meaning that is the second new moon of the month, and “super” meaning that it's still very close to the earth even if we can't see it too well. ;)

Astrologers say that this new moon can be a powerful time for new beginnings, as we integrate some of the changes we've undergone over the last few months. The general advice that comes with this moon is to set intentions for the positive changes that we'd like to see in our lives, based on what is in our heart space, and then to slowly move towards these. This new moon encourages us to take more ownership of our lives and also to have patience with how things are unfolding.

I've created a couple of tapping sequences that can help harness this new moon energy to our benefit - one to help improve patience, and the other to assist with personal power. As we step further into knowing and accepting ourselves, we can confidently create authentic intentions going forward. These two tapping sequences are designed to help us decide unapologetically what we'd like, and then take focused, directed, confident action towards them at the ideal pace - however slowly that may be. We can know what to do and when to do it, and enjoy the in between times without feeling stuck.

Enjoy, and lots of love! :)

Shed Your Fears To Follow Your Passions

If you're like many people, you might be able to imagine some of the things you'd like to have in your future. You might already have some passions that you'd like to follow, and steps you want to take to really create that future for yourself.

One of the huge barriers to actually creating that future for ourselves is fear. It could be fear of taking the steps we need to, or even fear of what might happen if we really do create that future for ourselves. I've created this tapping sequence to help release some of those fears.

Fears are natural, and we don't have to let them dictate what we can and can't do in life. They exist for a reason, and ultimately we get to choose what we do with them. Enjoy, and all the best!

5 Simple Tools To Help Stay In The Moment... And Stop Future Tripping

  • Find a notepad… and use it. Guess what - if you have a long list of things that need to be done, and you keep it in your head, it might tend to occupy your thoughts! There is a pretty basic solution to this dilemma, and it involves old-school technology. :) Use a pen and paper to make yourself checklists - I like to divide my tasks according to their time frames to keep it simple and organized. I prefer using a pen and paper for this list-making, because it prevents me from wandering into social media and online shopping when I write myself a quick note.

  • Meet your future tripping with compassion and curiosity. We usually have a good reason for thinking about the future, even if we don’t know what it is! If you notice that you are stuck future tripping, good news - you’re human! :) See if you can notice how this pattern benefits you and whether it addresses any underlying needs you might have. Paradoxically, accepting that you are going to think about the future a lot might actually decrease how much you do it.

  • Find a fun activity to do that requires your concentration. Nothing keeps you present like combining the joy of being in the moment with something that captures your attention. Ever watched a really good movie? You probably were glued to the screen… not thinking about taking the trash out three days later. Some people like books, mountain biking, cooking, learning a new skill, or drawing to incite their passion for the present. There are so many options - don’t be afraid to try out a few!

  • Meditate with the healing power of nature. I *love* finding an appropriate meditation spot in the great outdoors… but sometimes that can be easier said than done! If you aren’t into seated meditation, you can just take a leisurely walk with an intention to notice your surroundings. And if you like seated meditation but the weather won’t cooperate, or you can’t make it to a natural sanctuary, try using some nature sounds in a nice indoor space to help slow down the pace of life and center yourself. My favorite nature meditation collection is Nature Heals by Ilchi Lee.

  • Try a Thetahealing download for being present. Thetahealing downloads are really similar to software downloads for a computer, and basically function to upgrade your internal programming.  If you have a faulty version of a being present program, then maybe it's time to upgrade!  For example, some of us have been taught that being present feels unsafe or leaves us unprepared.  :(  No wonder we wouldn't want that!  All you have to do is say "YES" after reading this to receive the pure, direct download of the feeling of being present, without finding yourself unprepared, in the highest and best way with joy and ease.  It feels really, really good!  Enjoy! :)
