Why is it so important to live in alignment with your Moon Cycle?
This is such an important question.
If you feel fatigued, irritated, overwhelmed, and/or struggling with chronic or acute feminine health issues, this is a red flag from your body letting you know that there is an imbalance. These everyday “normal” symptoms are generally a sign that you have pushed past your body’s natural resources.
From an early age, I learned to use guilt as one of my guideposts for making decisions.
Yes, I grew up Jewish and so there could be religious conditionings 😉
But, for me, it was more what I picked up in my childhood after my parents got divorced.
As my family shifted, I became a caretaker, especially for my Father. This means that I would caretake his, or others’ needs before my own. I would get taken advantage of, I would shove down my true feelings, and/or I would deprioritize my own desires.
So, I am quite familiar with guilt and have used Flower Essences and many other practices to dissolve this chain of imprisonment. Now, that might seem like a harsh word to describe this, but when a pattern or imprint begins to affect your quality of life or your level of self-worth, you are not free.
Check out this episode of WomanRising TV and learn about Guilt – where it comes from, how it is affecting your ability to receive, and my favorite Flower Essence to release qualities of “people pleaser”, caretaker, and perfectionist.
As we begin the New Year, many of us have ideas of how we desire 2015 to “pan out.” Maybe you have created a theme for the year or have listed out your desires.
Or maybe, you are finding yourself confused.
Either confused about how to actually manifest your desires…. Y’know, how to bridge the gap between where you are now and what you want to experience. Or, confused about your desires overall.
There are so many messages blasted at us throughout our lives. Fall in love, get married, have children, work hard, save money, travel, etc. Oftentimes, we think we know our desires, but as we walk towards them, we find ourselves quite uncertain. We begin to questions whose desire this is we are chasing after – maybe it was your Mother or Father’s dream, maybe it was your best friend’s desire. It doesn’t matter whom it belongs to… the truth is, that it is no longer what your heart is yearning for.
And so we search for clarity.
Sometimes, we even torment ourselves trying to get clear on what it is that we most want to experience.
I know I spent most of my 20’s in this space. I remember many times looking at my life and feeling so sad and frustrated that my outer experiences were not matching my inner longings. And so I would sit at my altar for long periods of time, speaking my heart. Or I would have a session with an intuitive or ask friends what they thought I “should” do to create the life I envisioned.
I knew I wanted different. But different wasn’t quite clear yet.
When I work with my clients privately and even in my Flower Essence Practitioner Certification Program, I always ask for women to get clear on their WHY.
I can’t remember when I first learned about this, but it is such a valuable and simple practice.
For those of you on a healing path to emotional freedom, you must have a WHY.
Your WHY becomes your guidepost.
There is so much beauty and joy in emotional freedom.
On this path, your Essence is set free.
You create healthy and appropriate boundaries.
You speak your truth.
You prioritize your needs.
You make choices based on YOUR desires.
And mixed in with this liberation can be times of challenge.
When you feel into the times your father was emotionally absent and how that set you up to attract relationships of unavailability.
When you feel into the anger you have towards your mother who never listened to your needs.
When you feel into the betrayal of a lover who lied to you.
There can be a surge of anger, or even rage. There can be a fountain of grief. And it can be easy to fall into familiar patterns. It can be “safe” to keep suppressing these emotions because they are so uncomfortable and even heart achingly painful
