Really dig into what you love about yourself now and live from that place. Assess who you really are, what you want to create, how you want to show up, what enforces your sense of self and how you want to commit to that in yourself. - Molly McCord
Slow Weekend as July Ends
Take it easy for the next few days. Create a slower rhythm and move through each day with a slower pace.
Keep your mind open and your journal nearby for thoughts and realizations about how far you have come. About who you are now, and how you can live from that higher frequency energy signature.
What have you moved through this month, or in the past few months? Really think about what has changed for you.
If you move too fast, you are bound to miss it. Then when the full moon arrives, celebrate!
And on the Full Moon, honor your achievements and look at what you need to release
Full Moon in Aquarius: Try this Ritual
This video is SO encouraging! She talks about belonging, and coming full circle, and listening for intuitive whispers that will tell you what's next.
It's time to shift identities, routines, and roles we’ve taken on. Let that sink in. -Sara Vrbo
How will you take time for yourself in the next few days?
Here's one idea - a brief full moon ritual!
Full Moon Release and Renewal Ritual
The full moon is a powerful time for letting go of what no longer serves us and embracing new intentions.
This ritual is designed to help you release any negative energy or thoughts and invite positive energy and renewal into your life. But don't forget to celebrate how far you've come!
What You Need:
Candle (white or silver, or whatever you have)
Matches or a lighter
Pen and paper
Fireproof bowl or container
Clear quartz crystal (optional but recommended)
(1) Make Everything Cozy and Comfy
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed. Set up everything you need, light your candle, and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.
(2) Reflect on What You Are Ready to Release:
Take the pen and paper and sit quietly, reflecting on the things that have been weighing you down or causing you stress. Write down anything you wish to release from your life – negative thought patterns, old habits, fears, or emotional struggles.
(3) Full Moon Invocation:
Hold the paper in your hands and raise it towards the full moon (if possible, go outside to see the moon directly). Speak or think of your intention clearly, stating that you are ready to release these negative parts of your life.
Example: "I release all the negative energy and fears that hold me back. I let go of self-doubt and embrace self-love and full faith in myself."
(4) Burning Ceremony:
Note - this kind of ceremony is often done at the end of the year, but a half-year ceremony can be very powerful, too, so that you affirm or re-affirm intentions for the rest of the year.
Carefully light the paper with the candle flame and place it in the fireproof bowl or container. As it burns, visualize the negative energy being transformed and released into the universe, leaving you feeling lighter and more at peace.
(5) Gratitude and Intentions:
Now, shift your focus to anything positive that you want to invite into your life. Take a moment to express gratitude for everything you have accomplished and all you've moved through, and then think about your intentions for the future.
(6) Meditate and Recharge:
Do you have a clear quartz crystal?
If so, try holding it in your hands and meditating for a few minutes, allowing the energy of the full moon and your intentions to infuse the crystal. Let the energy flow through you, grounding you and providing a sense of renewal.
(7) End the Ritual
Thank the universe, the moon, and yourself for participating in this ritual. Blow out the candle, and if you used a crystal, keep it somewhere safe where you can see it as a reminder of your intentions.
