MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, January 10, 2016
MOON IN GEMINI THEN CANCER
Be aware of balancing your emotions with your logical mind. If you feel yourself being drawn into patterns from the past, be sure not to blindly communicate them. Think before you speak and harmonize your feelings with your rational self.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
May I speak with love from the heart; My mind and my feelings are in balance.

HOW TO MEDITATE WITH THE MOON
Using these simple Moon thoughts are a wonderful way to begin a daily meditation practice that keeps you focused on, and grounded in, the emotional energy of the Cosmos each and every day.
You can do a very simple 8/4 count meditation, which means you settle into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and breathe in to a slow count of 8, hold it for 4 counts, and then breathe out for a slow count of 8. Hold your breath again for 4 counts. On the in-breath recite a word or phrase from the Moon Meditation in your mind, focusing on that energy and holding it, and then consciously release that same energy out into the world on the out-breath. Then empty your mind space for 4 counts, and begin the process again on the in-breath with the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.
