The full moon is always beautiful and enchanting. It can also be an inspiration to open to universal intelligence. Taking the time to contemplate our role in a larger whole. Feeling aligned with a greater power can inspire us to create. We can feel the creative power of the moon. This creative power has been used since the beginning of time in many cultures.
Meditation is a powerful tool for self awareness and creativity. Most of us skip this important and necessary step to healthy manifestation. A lack of awareness of others needs as well as our own can lead to manifesting less than our hearts desire.
I'm going to list the process I use when I meditate.
Here they are: 4 Steps taken from the book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself"
1- Induction technique: a form of relaxation
2-Recognition: awareness of something you would like to change about yourself.
3-Declare: admit to a higher power within yourself what you would like to change.
4- Surrender: you surrender this self limiting state to a greater mind.
I recommend reading: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza
I rarely get to the creation part of the meditation, steps 5, 6, & 7, since it can take an hour to go through the four steps. By using a new trick that leaves me in a blissful state without spending the full two hours recommended by Dr. Joe. I move through the four stages first and end with a few minutes in what I term my "safe place". This should be a place or person that brings you great joy. It can be an activity. Combining all three is wonderful too. When you feel grateful, stop meditating and go out and enjoy your day. If you can get through the four stages and move on to creation in less than an hour, by all means do what works. If you have two hours to dedicate to your practice, that's great. You can also use your "safe place" when stuck in traffic or any other stressful situation. Take a minute or two to feel your "safe place". The feelings that are inspired during your meditation are all that you need to remember.
Manifestation is the by product of clear intention. I trust that if I clear away negative thoughts and programming, that my intuition will become clearer and I will take right action in the moment. When I am blindsided, I use this as an opportunity to see my unconscious stuff. Life really becomes a game when you stop being defensive and drop self-righteousness.
We can honor our values without being self-righteous. We begin to naturally choose people and places that support our values. The need to change others falls away as we walk our talk and leave the rest to a higher mind.
Happy Full Moon!
