Release.

The week of the full moon, it’s time to release what’s no longer serving us to get us closer to our intention.  

Last week I wrote about being ok with loneliness and the transformation of my current relationships.  After I wrote that piece, I felt this sudden shift of transformation in ALL my relationships, it hit me like a ton a bricks.  I was down and out for two days trying not to run away from what I was feeling, but at the same time wishing the pain would go away.  The pain I felt was pure loneliness – what I thought was loneliness last week was REAL loneliness this week and it wasn’t fun at all.  

I was watching my relationships being released right in front of my eyes and there was nothing that I could do, well I could control the situation and make them be in my life, but how would that serve me or them? It wouldn’t, so in reality I knew I needed to come to terms that these selected relationships weren’t serving me anymore and I needed to let go.  

Letting go is scary and sad but know that releasing and letting go you are creating space for something better. 

Hearing your Inner Voice

I sat and mediated to quiet the mind in order for my inner voice to be heard.  My voice was letting me know that these relationships weren’t serving me for different reasons, like dependency, unalignment and not being seen.  During my inner voice session I received the reassurance that it was ok that I step away and let go, it was more than ok, it was healthy. 

When I’m connected to my inner voice I know the direction I need to go.  We can easily let our mind control the direction we go in but how does that serve us? It doesn’t serve us to move forward, it serves us to keep in habitual patterns from our past.  What if we let our inner voice speak? We are lead in the direction of what is really serving us and moving us towards our true intention and our true potential in life and this is where true growth occurs.  

Taking Advantage of the Full Moon 

The FULL MOON, it’s the perfect time to immerse ourselves in the natural shift we feel once a month and use this natural shift to our advantage.  The moon moves the water on earth in very magical ways by creating tides in the ocean and since our bodies are made up of 70% water it makes sense that we are moved in magical ways as well (this is not scientifically proven, but if you believe, believe on).  The key thing to remember during the full moon cycles is that whatever we are feeling going into the Full Moon will amplify, positive and negative. 

With that thought in mind the full moon can release things, people and/or habits that are no longer serving us because that’s our intention moving toward the Full Moon.  The technique that I’ve used is to meditate on my inner voice and let the inner voice guide me to what it is that is no longer serving me. Then the night of the Full Moon take what is no longer serving me and write down what I’m releasing during the night of the Full Moon.  This month the Full Moon peaks on August 15th at 6:05am (MST), I would recommend writing down what you are releasing either the evening of August 14th or 15th to receive the moon’s full energetic power.  

I’ll leave with this quote on letting go and the effects of letting go from my FAVORITE BOOK, “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert.  

“If you clear out all that space in your mind that you’re using right now to obsess about this guy, you’ll have a vacuum there, an open spot – a doorway. And guess what the universe will do with the doorway? It will rush in – God will rush in – and fill you with more love than you ever dreamed. So stop using David to block that door. Let it go.”
