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…..

  • In the studio today editing a wedding video for a friend when Hubby brought me a snack. He said “ Before you say it’s bad to use paper plates... it’s recycled. I used it for my strawberry and banana snack.” I said “well thank you for the snack on the freshly used plate.” 😂😂
I love this man so much!!!

  • My heart aches. Notre Dame Cathedral is one of only a few places I’ve been to where you can feel the history around you as soon as you walk in. 
Years from now people will ask “ where were you when a Notre Dame Cathedral burn down?” #april152019 #notredame #notredamecathedral #paris #notredamedeparis #notredamecathedralfire #catholic #jesuschrist #relics #christian #easter #eastermass #popefrancis #vatican #art #history

  • Thank you, God for the life you have given me. 
Today I did my “So Hum” manta meditation. 
So: “That”
Hum: “I”

And I spent most of the day in prayer....
Asking God to give me what I need and not always what I want. .

  • I turn 50 in one month and I needed a change. I’m craving some zen in my life. I’m tired of sleeping and doing my yoga practice with a heavy bun. Sooooo I cut 15 inches off and donating it to @wigs.for.kids I feel lighter and brighter already. .

  • Day 790 I decided to stop letting my anxiety get the best of me so I took my doctors advice and decided to give Zoloft a try. 
I was an 8 at the drs office. God bless him for holding my hand while I cried.
