The Full Moon

Happy New Year. Today is January 1st and there is a beautiful full Wolf moon in the deep blue sky. This month has two full moons, a Wolf moon and a Blue moon. They are also both Supermoons so I have no doubt 2018 will be a wonderful year. The Farmer’s Almanac can explain it better than I can.

I have decided that 2018 will be my year of Self Love. I want to slow down and get back to nourishing my mind, body and soul. From this day forward I am letting go and releasing everything that does not serve my highest level of excellence.

I have loved the Bella Luna ( Beautiful Moon ) since I was a little girl. My Italian grandmother would take me outside so we could lay on a blanket in the backyard, talk about the moon, watch shooting stars speed pass while eating  s’mores. So many great childhood memories.  When I started this blog I wanted to make sure I had a special section just for the Bella Luna and my rituals.

I am a Christian raised in the Baptist Church but my Father also followed many Native American spiritual teachings so I was taught moon rituals from a very young age. With every full moon I have a ritual I do to release and forgive. Everyone has a different ritual so I’m going to share my ritual and then share a couple videos I love.

 

My Full Moon Ritual…

  • Cleanse House-
    First thing I do is smudge my whole house with white sage.
  • Cleanse Body-
    Bathe with sea salt, lavender oil and Florida water then I smudge my body with white sage.
  • Cleanse Mind-
    Meditate for 30 minutes
  • Cleanse Stones and Crystals-
    I place my stones and crystals in large glass containers, fill it with water and let it sit outside for 24 hours. Then I wash them off and they are cleansed and recharged. I use the left over water to wash my hair.
  • Release Your Intention-
    Write a list of things you want to release. Pray and ask God to give me strength to release and forgive. Then I take my list and I burn it. you have to burn it until it’s totally gone.

 

Videos I love…..

  • What is your morning routine? I’m a creature of habit. No matter where I am in the world I keep up with my morning routine. 
I wake up between 4 and 4:30.

1. Water - every night before I go to bed I fill up a 24 ounce mason jar with lemon water and sit it on my nightstand.

2. Morning Prayer- Thank you, God for the life you have given me. 
3. Bathroom- brush teeth, wash face and all that good stuff. 
4. It’s Matcha time- I love my Matcha with lemon and tiny bit of stevia.

5. Look at my planner- see what my day looks like then add or remove things. 
6. Time with God- I’m working on reading the whole Bible in one year. I take lots of notes in the margin. At the end of the year I’ll talk more about this.

7. What’s for Dinner - I go through some of my favorite cookbooks and decide what’s for dinner. I honestly feel like with my #celiac #hashimotos and #lupus I have to pre-plan All my meals. I research restaurants and hotels long before I walk in their door.

8. Self Care - I meditate for 20-30 minutes every single morning. I love a “ So Hum “ mantra meditation. 
Eight easy things and I’m usually done by 5:30. I used to do my yoga in the morning but since I’m #intermittentfasting I’ve started doing my yoga around noon so I can have a pre-workout drink and then breakfast after my workout. 
Are you a creature of habit?

  • Today is national cheese day so I thought I would share some of our favorite plant based cheeses. 
Right now our new favorite is the @wholefoods plant-based mozzarella and cheddar for our tacos and tostados. Of course we are big fans of @miyokoscreamery cheese wheels. We have five in the fridge right now because Hubby makes a cheese and crackers tray for his Thursday night poker get together. @daiyafoods is our all time favorite for vegan Mac and cheese, nachos, twice baked potatoes. We really love @violife_foods when we make vegan enchiladas and my Grandmas lasagna. last but not least we love @parmaveganparm on our potatoes and pasta.

  • I don’t like to play golf, but he does.... so I love to go with him.
He doesn’t like eating gluten free, but I have to... so he’s given up gluten for me.
I don’t like skydiving, but he does...so I never miss his jumps so I can kiss him before and after. 
He doesn’t like going to the theater to watch chick flicks, but I love them... and he always goes with me to wipe my tears. 
That’s marriage...
That’s true love.......

  • With every step forward you MIGHT take two steps backwards..... but what if you don’t? 
No matter how small of a step you take forward it’s a step in the right direction. 
Never compare your life to others. A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

  • I’ve been drinking #spirulina and #chlorella by @wizelephant.superfoods for about a month and I love it.... but then the other day I saw @centerkim10 husband Nate drinks @lovesuja wellness shots and I have to tell you the combo has changed my life. 
I no longer need coffee or matcha before my workouts. I mix the spirulina, chlorella with a cup of filtered water add the immunity stir like hell then chug it down. No it doesn’t taste great but your body will love it. Then I shake and take the suja organic digestion shot and I’m ready to kill it at the gym. No more pre-workout coffee or matcha 😍 
Thank you, Kim and Nate for being such great inspirations and total badasses. I love y’all ✌️❤️🙏
