The New Moon occured on August 17, 2012, at 11:54 AM Eastern
I’m feeling the energy of the Leo New Moon having just finished up the free New Moon in Leo Teleclass & Meditation… just minutes ago. I’m so grateful to each and every one of you who took time out of your busy schedule to join me this evening. It was such a powerful sharing! I wish wide-open heart spaces, loving support and gratitude, practical forward movement in your heart’s desires, and inspired creativity to every one.
Now I want to share our gorgeous meditation with all of you!
In creating this meditation I focused on the energies of the New Moon and Sun in Leo as they emphasize and engage our hearts – in love, in relationship, in creativity and self-expression. At this moment, the New Moon, intended to restore your soul, the Sun and Moon are involved in a sextile aspect to Saturn. That simply means that these bodies are 60 degrees apart in the sky. This is a connection of opportunity between your core creative being symbolized by the Sun, your emotional being symbolized by the Moon, and the impetus to bring form and structure into reality symbolized by Saturn.
This connection brings an opportunity to engage realistically with your emotions and your heart’s desires and lends practical support to expressing them. Allow this meditation to refresh, restore and regenerate your spirit as you prepare for a new creative beginning in the next few days. A new cycle of creation begins.
Below you may listen to the meditation or read it for yourself.
New Moon in Leo Meditation
This is a guided imagery meditation.
The best way to engage in this experience is to sit comfortably upright with your bare feet on the ground or the floor, with closed eyes and an open heart and an open mind.
Relax your face. Smile and release any tension there. Relax your shoulders. Gently lift them and let them fall into a comfortable place. Shake your arms and hands lightly and then allow them to become comfortable and loose, resting your hands in your lap. Breathe deeply into your torso and as you breathe out twist easily and gently from side to side, then come to center and settle into an easy position. Now gently shake your legs and move them from side to side for a couple of breaths, then bring them to stillness, releasing any tension in them… just let them relax and become heavy. Now lift your feet a little and wiggle your toes and circle your ankles and let them come to rest, planting them firmly on the floor again, knees bent and wide, easily supporting your relaxed legs. Breathe very deeply, in and out, at a natural and comfortable rate.
Even gentle breaths – getting deeper and deeper as you relax.
Breathing slowly, slowing your heart rate. In. Out. In. Out.
Now the darkness behind your eyelids is growing even darker. Darker with every breath.
Now open your mind to suggestion. Free yourself into a blissful conscious darkness. Breathe there, relaxing in pleasure.
Now, breathing slowly and fully in and out, imagine that all the people you have ever loved, and who have loved you, are standing in a circle around you. Family, friends, teachers, mentors, co-workers, those you have met in your travels, even if only briefly. These are the people with whom you have shared loving moments in time and space, no matter how brief or how long your experience. These are the people with whom you have shared your life: those still in their earthly bodies and those who have gone on before you. Each one is smiling at you with love shining from their eyes and their hearts. Imagine you can see the love radiating toward you in golden waves of light and energy. This light emanating from them is pure, unconditional and endless love. It is the most supportive feeling you have ever experienced. Accept it. Accept the love they offer. Know with your whole being that you deserve their love and support and open yourself to feeling it completely. Immerse yourself in it.
Continue breathing and let go of your discomfort. Release any guilt. Let go of any shame. Let go of any grief. Release misunderstandings. Let go of slights and grudges. Push all of these feelings down from your heart and out of the soles of your feet into the body of Mother Earth. She will dissolve it all and transform it into love to be shared among all of you.
Open fully to accepting love. Continue to see the love, affection, tenderness, appreciation and gratitude radiating from their hearts and eyes… all for you.
Now, continuing to breathe deeply, it is your turn to radiate. Feel the love for these beautiful souls generate and then gather in your heart. Feel your appreciation for each and every one of them for the role they have played in your life and for the rightness of the lessons they’ve offered you. Feel the magnitude of completeness and grace that spreads throughout your body as you feel pure, unconditional love for every person in your circle. Push the love out toward them, shining it through your heart and your eyes, and ask each one to accept the love you offer as you accept their love for you.
You have become both a conduit and a generator of pure Universal love. You have created an unbreakable circuit of support and of giving and receiving, bestowing and accepting. And this is the space of creativity.
Imagine that your heart is a bridge between your Higher Self, which is your Consciousness, your Intuition, your Visionary, your Mind, your Communicator – all who reside in the upper reaches of your body, with your Will, which is your Power, your Manifester, your Pleasure Principle, and your Physical Self – all who reside in the lower reaches of your body. Your heart connects and binds all of your selves with love, with acceptance, with appreciation, with gratitude and with generosity. With your heart as the loving bridge to all parts of you, you are freed to create your reality, and to honor your life’s dreams and desires.
Keep breathing and take a few moments to see yourself as the loving creator of your dreams. Feel your passion rising. Feel your passion rising. See yourself realizing, manifesting your life’s potentials as the you who is balanced by love. Envision helpers coming to assist you in the real work and manifestation of your heart’s desires. Steep for a few moments in the you who creates your reality and manifests your dreams.
Continue to breathe in and out with the light of love. And now, see your heart not only as the bridge within you connecting all of your inner potential and talents, but also the bridge that connects you with your circle of loving and supporting people – the people of your heart. See your heart expanding to reach them as their hearts also become bridges to you. Together you are creating a wheel of loving energy that can manifest anything that comes from a place of love, acceptance, giving and receiving.
Breathing, feel the amazing power of loving energy radiating in all directions within your circle of love, and then begin to expand the waves that all of you create out into every direction. Beam the love into the whole of the world, connecting with heart bridges of possibility, potential, appreciation, generosity, acceptance, forgiveness, and creative expression with everyone who exists.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Feel the vortex of creative energy that you’ve birthed within and without. Feel your dreams becoming reality via the bridges of love and support that now exist. See yourself taking loving action toward your heart’s desires, with passion and boldness, knowing that you cannot fail because your circle of people, the people of the world and the Universe supports and accepts your vision and creative genius. Know that you succeed because the world needs your creative breath, your loving heart, to live into the next paradigm.
Now – hold these feelings within your heart as you begin to bring your breath to a natural rhythm and your awareness to your physical surroundings.
Breathing, know that you take this moment of love and creation with you beyond this moment – and into all the moments of your life. You are a loved and loving creative force with the power and support to fulfill your purpose and manifest your heart’s desires. Your heart is the bridge linking the creative and the manifesting forces inside you. Your heart is the bridge connecting you to the loving support that will help you in every way to fulfilling your dreams.
When you’re ready, come to full awareness and open your eyes; eyes that are now glowing with love and creative drive, ready to plant the seeds and then to reap the harvest of your heart’s desires. Breathe. Smile…
Now slowly open your eyes, feeling refreshed and restored.
Mmmmmm. Ok. Very nice. How do you feel?
