It is time to release and almost time to fast!
November 5, 2007
We are in the waning phase of the moon. This is the phase where it is most auspicious to do releasing work and rituals. This is also the waning phase of our year.
We are working with the energy of the Goddess of Radical Transformation also known as Oya, Kali Ma, Pele and Sekhmet. Again, this energy of the Great Mother within us asks that give up the very things that prevent us from experiencing our full Goddess Selves.
This is a great time to look back at the intentions set at the beginning of the year to determine what goals you are still working to achieve and what behaviors, attitudes and beliefs are preventing you from reaching them.
One of the things that I have decided to do is to stop wasting time. I find that I lack productivity most of the time because I am spending too much time engaged in do-nothing activities.
When I think about it, these are things that I do to actually AVOID the very things that move me toward the vision for my life.
And so it is these behaviors that I release this waning moon phase as well as for the rest of the year.
I encourage you to begin to think about what it is that you need to release. Write down one behavior/belief/attitude that you desire to let go. Tear or burn the paper and bury it. Make a committment to not return to that behavior again.
Some of you may even need to leave a relationship or a job. The biggest question is, "How is it working for you?" Are you just used to the other person or the particular workplace? Are you wondering "Why go into unknown when I already know what I have?"
That is the exact reason that you go into the unknown! Because you do know what you have and what you have ain't working!
There is someone reading this message who needs to really ponder this and make a decision to do and be more in your life!
And the Ancient Mothers have spoken....
The 2007Winter Solstice Fast will be here before we know it. I always set it to begin 20 days before the change of season so we have time to think about how the fast will look collectively as well as individually.
Winter is the time to get quiet and go within to determine our vision and the goals for the upcoming year. Fasting assists us in getting clear on what it is that we are to do as well as how to go about achieving our objective.
So take time to gear up for the fast. I LOVE fasting during the holiday season because doing so prevents me from gaining weight. So this fast comes at a truly exciting time of the year.
I will pray and do a reading to find out what the focus of the fast will be and the energies governing it.
Peace, Love and Releasing to YOU!
