MEDITATING WTH THE MOON – Monday, January 30, 2017
MOON IN PISCES
The energy at large is one of pulling away from the illusion – pulling wide the curtain – toward a possibly bitter reality, or long-standing wound. If the edges have been blurred (purposefully or through persuasion), or disillusion has been your companion, there is an opportunity today to move deeply into compassion, firmly toward spiritual guidance, and come starkly clean.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
Transformation in thinking is the key to transformation in feeling.

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 before breathing in again. 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 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.
