The moon allows us to recognise and respond to our feelings.
The moon supports our meditations by shining reflective sunlight into our inner world that help us to understand, know and love ourselves. Only you can truly know you, so allow the moon to illuminate your inner Guru. With regular meditation practise you will begin to recognize the feeling of your intuitive wisdom. It is the part of you that lets you know you are in the flow of your truth, whether that be an inkling, a knowing or a physical sensation that ripples through you. The moon supports our emotions and feelings and wants us to know that everything we experience is really about how we feel or want to feel. So the moon asks you “How do you want to feel in your life?”
Have you become so used to feeling negatively, that this has become your way of seeing anything. You can only see what your beliefs allow you see. This will confirm your beliefs through the manifestations that you are creating and thus validate them. Feeling that you are right doesn’t make you happy – Are you beliefs filling your life with your dreams or your nightmares?
There is no need to pay your dues, seen to be working extra hard or suffering for what you want. However if this is what you believe this will be your reality. An unhappy story cannot have a happy ending. Looking inward will help you to be aware of beliefs that no longer work for you.
Meditate and be you, even if you have no idea who that is. The more you do this, the more you will discover what you like and don’t like and how you want to feel. Then you can place your focus on what you do want and watch it unfold around you in surprising and wonderful ways.
My desire for you is that from this day forward you will no longer stand in the shadow of your greatness. May the moon illuminate your inner world and deepest desires.
THE CYCLES OF THE MOON
The moon emanates distinctly different energies during its approximately 28 day cycle from new moon to full moon. Each of the eight cycles facilitates the process of creation and manifestation.
New Moon Day 1-3 New moon energy is for creating a vision.
Waxing Crescent Moon Day 2-6 Crescent moon energy if for organising resources needed to accomplish the vision
First Quarter Moon Day 6-9 First quarter moon is using resources gathered to take action toward fulfilling the vision
Waxing Gibbous Moon Day 10-13 Gibbous moon energy helps us fine tune our goals, gather opinions from others and make revisions to the plan.
Full Moon Day 13-17 The light of the full moon brings about manifestation of, or progress toward our goals. We can see where we are in the process of realising the vision.
Waning Gibbous Moon Day 17-21 The disseminating moon helps us distribute and share what we have learned, or to have a clearer understanding of what to do next.
Third Quarter Moon Day 21-24 In the third quarter of the moon we are in a completion and review phase, or following up on and refining the resources we gathered during the crescent moon. Re-evaluation takes place during this time to determine what is needed as a next step to move forward with the goal.
Waning Crescent Moon Day 24-28 Under the balsamic moon it is time to be alone, meditate, retreat, and release attachment to outcome. It is time to rest and be introspective. During this time vision clears and we are ready to begin again with the next new moon.
The moon radiates different energies during its approximate 28 day cycle.
I have created a simple way to use the energy of the moon to get to know your truth and create your dreams. I have split the month into four weeks that include New, Waxing, Full and Waning Moon.

Week 1 New Moon
Create a new vision
What is the intention for this vision? Does it flow from fear or Love?
Sowing the seeds of your desires.
Week 2 Waxing Moon
Focus on the vision
How dedicated are you toward your vision? Manifestations grow where energy flows.
Seeds begin to grow and develop flower buds.
Week 3 Full Moon
Celebrate your vision and its manifestations
Your vision is illuminated in the physical. How many manifestations emotional or physical can you count that have the flavour of your vision
Flower buds have blossomed into beautiful flowers.
Week 4 Waning
Release your vision and its manifestations.
Embrace, integrate, refine and re-evaluate all that has been experienced to de-termine your next desires to sow.
Flowers fall away and reveal ripe fruit to be picked.
The moon shines rays of diffused sun and star light into our inner worlds, making it easier for us to know who we are. Moons are reflectors of what we feel.
Be who you are, for your are wonderful. A being filled with wonder. Namaste, Denise♥
