Lately I’ve been getting into a rhythm of syncing my intentions with the lunar cycle. It’s been a great way to reconnect with the passage of time and clear out patterns and processes that no longer serve me. The energy at the end of January felt so incredibly potent that I knew I needed to properly honor the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse. In preparation for tomorrow’s full moon, I thought I’d share how I honored the last lunar cycle.
I’ve recently started to experiment with crystal meditations and I’ve found it so helpful for my focus and clarity. Whenever I sit down to meditate, my thoughts start to race at a million miles a minute. When I try to focus on my breath, my mind immediately starts to wander. Crystals help slow down my brain and bring my attention back to the moment.
Crystal scrying has never exactly been on my spiritual radar. I’m an intuitive person, but I’ve never really used any tools to tap into this intuition. My only reference point were Hollywood images of witches gazing into crystal balls to predict the future.
If I took one lesson from the past year, it’s that there is incredible power in radical vulnerability. While I’d hoped that 2017 would be kinder to us all, I spent most of the year feeling paralyzed.
I think I kept it together pretty well: I juggled a full-time job and an demanding consulting gig. I navigated a marriage transformed by the endless reverberations of grief. I managed to keep 3 needy creatures alive. But inside, I was struggling.
