MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Wednesday, January 25, 2017
MOON IN CAPRICORN
If you’re feeling pushed and pulled between emotional control and emotional fluidity, understand that it’s through communicating that you find equilibrium. The deeper you go to find your words, and the more your respond and speak from your sense of wholeness, i.e. integrity, the more power your voice and your vision will carry.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I communicate from the wholeness of myself. I’m unafraid to share my truth. I see a beautiful vision for the future by balancing control with openness.

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.
