MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Thursday, January 26, 2017
MOON IN CAPRICORN
Leaving the comfort of your known parameters is sometimes frightening, sometimes exciting, and always liberating. Learning to experience true freedom within supportive structures is an effort that we become better at with maturity – as is leaving restrictive structures that don’t allow us to fully engage our spirits, our intellects, or our creative, Divinely inspired vision.
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I now understand whether my existing structure is supporting or restricting me. I work toward creating a supportive structure that allows me to fly!

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.
