Today is the super new moon in Cancer. Major themes of this new moon are catharsis, renewal, and transformation. We can use the energy present to release the patterns and situations that no longer serve us so that we can step into new, elevated structures with intention and trust.
I believe that life is a process of awakening, of calling back our power. There are levels to the work of soul retrieval and I don’t know if it ever stops. Do we ever reach a place we are fully aware of our power and using it %100 of the time? Only time will tell!
I have been on this soul retrieval journey for a minute, and the internal and external shifts that occur are always noticeable. Lately though?! The upgrades have been extra juicy and delicious.
I spent most of my life trying to be someone else. Maybe I felt that being someone or something else would make me more lovable. Maybe I was too afraid to be the powerful, magnetic person I felt I was and ask for what I really wanted (everything!). Maybe, in some twisted way, I thought that I would somehow get what I wanted by pretending not to want it and just being amicable and easy.
Whatever the reasoning was, lately, Spirit has been sending me a very clear message. CUT THE BULLSHIT.
I am receiving ample opportunities to take a cold hard look at myself and claim ownership of all the parts and pieces of me that I’ve resisted and denied.
My integration work has highlighted to me that
when we do not live and express ourselves authentically
when we use our energy to suppress and deny our needs and desires
when we shrink ourselves and disown our power to be loved, liked, and accepted
when we resort to tactics of manipulation to get what we need
when we harbor resentment, envy, and anger for not receiving what we refuse to admit we want and not being all that we know we are
we become half-assed, watered down versions of ourselves. We waste our magic.
My most potent form of witchcraft lies in the alchemy of self-transformation.
As I not only claim, but love and hold tenderly, all of me, my inner and outer worlds have transformed in unimaginable ways.
I refuse to suppress my power and disown my magic, my gifts, my purpose, my birth right, by focusing my energy into self rejection and abandonment.
My declaration: I am a unique creative expression of God/Goddess. I stand proudly in all of my power with reverence for where I have been, pride for where I am, and rapture for where I am headed.
I feel more powerful, more focused,and clearer about who I am, what I want, where I am going, and how to get there than ever before.
And it's only up from here.
New Moon Blessings
