Letting Go and Embracing the Transformation

Everything that has come to fruition in our lives is a gift, whether it came easily or with struggle; every moment we have spent with someone is a blessing no matter how they behaved; everything ever given to us was intended to be shared, including the way others treat us. The trick is remembering this when life feels like it's turning up shit more than roses.

We have been working a lot of let go energy and welcoming new. But its not a one and done kind of energy. If we don't fill the void of what we let go of, its a void that is easily filled back up by the very things we want to release. If you've done some work on letting go and still feel or experience the things you have released try the following:

1.) Acknowledge the good, even if it's only a small thing. When we focus on not enough we tend to overlook the abundance that is there. We can't always see it, but it's still there nonetheless.

2.) Refuse to let a person or situation define you. Keep your focus on who and what you want to be and how you want to serve others. Always know that perception is not reality. Know also that people will take from you whatever they can, no matter how strong or weak you are. They will use your fears against you if possible. If you make yourself a mirror for their projections they will walk away feeling enlightened and superior while you have tears in your eyes.

3 .) Let go of expectations. This means no more shoulds or supposed-to's. You are free! If you need help remembering this ask for it from whatever source feels right to you (it might be God/dess, Angels, Guides, Ancestors get the idea).

4.) Celebrate even your most difficult transitions. Look at what you have gained rather than mourned. Acknowledge all the changes you've made and how far you've come. Allow yourself to celebrate even your most difficult transitions because on some level they will always bring transformation.

5.) Love yourself-this is not narcissistic, it's needed if we are to survive on this planet as humans with souls who can see beyond our own noses . It's okay to take vacations from the world, but don't ever try to build a wall between you and others or that will be where you stay until it crumbles away along with your dreams.

6.) Don't be afraid of your own emotions; honor them and they will inform you of what needs to be seen and released. Some days we might even want to throttle ourselves for not listening earlier, but there's no need-we all deserve compassion and forgiveness, especially from ourselves .

7.) Practice gratitude every day by asking "who or what is it I am grateful for?" It doesn't matter if the answer takes a second or five hours (although I recommend doing this first thing in the morning). When we take time to see beyond our noses we affirm that our perception really does have an effect on reality. You can then use those blessings as powerful bricks in building your home! Remember that everything is a gift even the worst of circumstances. We tend to see what we expect which is why it's always a good idea to bring your focus back where you want it rather than obsessing over the aspects that anger or sadden you.

8.) Never hold onto resentment, regret or guilt. They are "energies" that suck up our power and keep us stuck! It doesn't matter if someone wronged you five minutes ago or fifty years ago; release them with forgiveness-it really does set you free! So please don't say anything negative about yourself today because I already know how hard these next two weeks will be for me without taking my own inventory .

9.) Remember that all darkness exists within light; even shit exists within abundance (just like weeds exist within beautiful gardens, so does the possibility of being over-run with them ).

10.) Keep moving forward because there are SO many opportunities for you to experience something new. There is no reason to hold onto guilt, shame or regret because they will not allow you to see your own reflection in the world around you. Just live in this moment and breathe deeply so you can absorb all its gifts.

11.) Keep doing what makes you feel alive and remember that anything worth doing is worth doing well. If you're not enjoying yourself then do something else that changes the channel in your head-there are plenty of other things to keep you busy rather than make it harder on yourself .

12.) Take a moment to celebrate all that you have accomplished and achieved no matter how big or small. We all face challenges in life but finding the strength within ourselves to rise above them is what's most important!

13.) Don't judge yourself so harshly because you are not perfect. When we expect too much of ourselves it's easy to feel disappointed because no one can achieve everything they've set out to do-it's all about the journey, not the destination! The important thing is that you try your best at whatever task or challenge life has put in front of you; if things don't go as planned then it's still good practice for the future (here is where mistakes become experiences).

14.) Make time for hobbies and things you enjoy doing. We all need an outlet to express ourselves in some way, so don't force yourself into something just because you think it will help. If there's something that makes you feel good inside then do it as often as possible-it only takes a few minutes to recharge when everything else seems too much.

We are all on the same journey and everyone has their own path so try not to compare yourself to others otherwise you'll never be happy. As long as you continue learning and growing then everything else will fall into place somewhere along the way.

Being kind is more important than being right so treat others with respect and consideration, especially if they've done something for you (little gestures go a long way). Don't be afraid to show someone love even if they aren't an easy person because sometimes it takes years for some people to open up.

Love is within us all and the most beautiful thing about it is that it's unlimited. We can always love more-whether you want to spread love throughout your family, school or community then good things will come back to you. Love is an energy that flows through everything so let yours be like a flame of light leading the way!

We are all connected on some level even though it may not seem like this (the internet connects us in ways we've never imagined). Communication is key because without it there would be no empathy or understanding-without communication our problems would go unsolved and distance ourselves from each other even further. All relationships take work because nobody's perfect but give forgiveness whenever needed because forgiveness leads to freedom.

In the end all that matters is that you do what makes you happy and appreciate those around you because life isn't guaranteed . We only get one chance to live on this earth so make it count while we're here, even if it means going against the crowd! As Harry Potter's Albus Dumbledore once said: "Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light," so let your happiness shine bright wherever you go!

How are you embracing this Lunar Eclipse energy and leaning into the transformation journey as we go from New Moon to Full Moon?
