MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Thursday, January 19, 2017
MOON IN LIBRA THEN SCORPIO
Shifting, shifting, shifting. Accept today’s very pushy invitation for change, for to resist means being out of emotional sync with your head – or perhaps worse – your heart. Where is your Soul leading your Ego? Digging in your heels is last on the recommendation list. I’m not describing events or actions in life, but rather your process for understanding them. Release the tension by raising your consciousness.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I have active, flowing outlets for my internal tensions. I am raising my consciousness toward exhilaration, leaving stuck-ness and anxiety behind.

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, either using the same word/phrase you’re working with (until it feels comfortable and “right”) or move on to the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.
