There are a lot of articles circulating about the SuperMoon and how to harness the energy for personal growth and the highest self. I don’t follow astrology much, but I can tell you that I personally have a connection with the moon and pay attention to its phases.
Regardless of what you believe, it’s always a good idea to pause and reflect. To contemplate what is working in your life and what is not. What you want to stop, start and continue.
The past few months have brought about a lot of change in my life. I had a romance end, a new career opportunity rise to the surface, the illness of a loved one and many loved ones in my life struggling with changes in their own lives. Any change can trigger past hurt and insecurities, but many changes taking place at once can really put you through the ringer.
This is exactly what happened.
With the help of my therapist, my yoga practice, mindfulness, meditation, journal entries, talking to loved ones and a whole host of other self-care techniques, I have done my very best to process all of this change and look for areas of growth. What do I want? What is important to me? What would I like to change? And perhaps most importantly, what would I like to release?
Since this SuperMoon is all about release, it’s no shocker that today it has come into sharp focus: I want to release my intense desire to control the outcome. While this serves me in many ways, it also really holds me back and keeps me from experiencing the beauty that is found in letting go.
Now, I cannot promise I won’t be a plotter and a planner, always working toward the next big idea (that’s just who I am), but I can relax into the journey more.
I want to release the need to analyze every situation in my life and what it means, relaxing into the gifts it brings, without always questioning its greater purpose.
I want to release the fear in my heart and lead from a place of love and acceptance.
I want to release the idea that I am anything less than completely whole.
I want to release the belief that I know best and live from a more humble place.
I want to release the fear of failure and judgment and pursue the life of my dreams without hesitation.
I want to live fully, with an open heart, an open mind and to love with a sense of wild abandon.
What would you like to release?
