… it is quite wonderful to get older,
and there are many gifts.
See yourself, your Friends, your home…
everything is “perfect”,
until you put your glasses on.
After, another “perfection” appears,
and you can appreciate both.
Some people have asked about how to do the FullMoon meditation for Earth Healing, when you have no experience (or little) of shamanism or healing. I may have written about it before, but not mind doing it again.
It is a relevant question, and thanks for asking. I tend to believe in the net days everybody knows about everything, but one thing is the anonymous plugging in somewhere, another asking directly, and getting the answer from someone you know, or you have some kind of contact with.
I will try to be, as usual, as little dogmatic, as “safe”, and as simple as possible.
There are million ways, of course, and I also believe an atheist can do, providing the interest.
Like for the Sweatlodge, and for other kinds of work, the main thing is the INTENTION (or wish to do some “good”), and some disciplined TIME you OFFER.
We could consider it like the BREATH PROCES, time to breathe in, time to hold a little, time to breathe out, and time to be empty.
GET READY in the way you feel most comfortable, find your good position, face the Moon.
BREATHE IN: use (if you have) any PREPARATION praxis, CLEANSING, and CONNECT to your CENTER (belly, root chakra).
CONNECT to your friends/teachers/trustworthy humans or spirit Beings, and to your own “Godlike essence” (big Mystery, the Unknown, Cosmic Space, Life or ?), and to the God essence outside of you (easier if we think them as two parts, maybe). If you do not know who what to connect to, just ASK FOR HELP.
THANK, and present your INTENTION (who, what would you like to pray for etc.)
BREATHE PAUSE: stay in the MoonLight, let it clean you, charge you, and bless you, be as empty as possible, RECEIVE.
BREATHE OUT: POUR YOUR PRAYERS AND BLESSINGS OUT to who/what you choose to help healing, ONE AT THE TIME: expressing LOUD AND SIMPLE is best, (I ask for Healing for…., I bless the Earth…)
If you got many people/things to pray for, have a LIST you can read, (but “little and strong” is “better” than “much and unfocused”, in my opinion).
You can have the LIST on paper in the MOONLIGHT, and /or BETWEEN YOUR HANDS.
SEND a feeling/thought of LOVE AND COMPASSION, SEND NOT YOUR OWN ENERGY (sending your own Energy may cause your Energy body to diminish/leak, that is one of the reasons we ask for help).
Should you feel very “involved or emotionally touched very deeply” by what/who you pray for it may be better and safer to send blessings: (for example ” I bless you child, and may you heal “, or “I bless whoever and whatever may contribute to Peace on Earth”, or “May the Earth be a peaceful place to be for us all” ).
BREATH PAUSE: CHOOSE A WAY TO END, THANK ALL FOR HELP, RELEASE HELPERS AND YOURSELF FROM DUTY, BACK TO your CENTER (body/belly center, body volume and weight).
STAY AND BREATHE for a while to “land good”, UNTIL YOU FEEL WHOLE AGAIN, feel how you feel, move slowly, and wake up at own rhythm.
… It may sound complicated, and it may need a little time to digest: the first times you may feel akward, but it will pass…
I hope I got you inspired: this is just one way of doing it.
Blessings on you, and thank you for being with at the FullMoon meditation! Both night before and on FullMoon night between 19 and 21, each month. 🙂
Growth isn’t always obvious or clear to the looking eye, or even to ourselves.
Growth is a silent pencil, transforming us and the lines of our Reality, at times wild and screaming, at times tamed and discrete.
Freeing oneself from the addiction of “doing”, and “being” instead, moving into Presence, is not so popular, and easily neglected.
“Learning by doing” applies sometimes, sometimes not, depends on doing what.
Enjoy your Growth.
Give me the medicine and heal me now…
Patterns and “rotten roots” are at times grown and stable in our Inner, we even do not know what they are, or where they come from…but “the doctor” has to fix it FAST…
Give me the pill for Happiness, give me the pill for Balance, and do it NOW, so I do not need to do any thing…
Big Mystery and Spirits may do the job? Maybe we also need to keep on working, patience and discipline may help?
We are a little funny at times…:)
We survived, again, Wintertime, inside and outside.
Now contemplating Life appearing or reappearing…Resurrection!
New Creations are happening out there in Nature, new Babies (all kinds) are coming, waking up… Birds are “flirting”, and looking for material for their nests…
At times strong, at times quiet, great is the Power of the East, of new Beginnings, fruitful Fertility, Miracles.
Day and Night Balance, a split second and everything will explode in Growth. Sun stronger and stronger, Life stronger and stronger.
We reflect upon our Seeds,Thoughts, Feelings, and Deeds.
We shine up our Life by letting go of unneeded stuff, so we have room for Fresh Energy and Vision.
We discharge, recharge, and bless and pray. Refresh your home and yourself, give presents and donations, walk out, dance with your Friends and Helpers, observe and smell Flowers, hug your Relations, and… Have a lovely Spring celebration!
(Be with on 20/3 Equinox ceremony, or on “Clearing and Healing day”?)
You allowed me in…
You showed me Your Essence
and You showed me Your Miracles…
You gave me Silence and Gifts
and a Space to be Me again…
Flowers grew under my feet in the Desert,
I tranced lost in the Walls of Your Waves,
I sucked in all Your Colours.
You allowed me in Your Paradise,
and I am so very Grateful.
We all are dancing…
Some of us graciously, beautifully,
some of us stiff, some of us staccato,
some of us quiet,
some of us stopped dancing on this Planet some time ago,
they maybe dance some other place, some other way.
We worry so much about our dance, is it meaningful, is it good, is it worthy?
Spirit watches us dancing, and smiles.

I am often concerned and reflect about what I can give, and how.
Today, last of this year, I spent some time meditating on an alternative text for wishing my Friends and Clients a “happy new year”. Lost time and silly speculation? Maybe, but I do care, and messages have to be “sincere, good and clear” when one is me.
Considering all hundreds possibilities, I did come back to a simple one “Best 2018 to You, and big hug!”, and it probably will stay there, but let’s see.
All of a sudden an “idea” flashed: whether it is “bright”, or not, who can tell? Maybe someone gets inspired?
It is a small and humble project, yet fruitful. Here it comes.
Take it, change it, leave it, make it Yours, create Your own. Sure it has been done before, and it will be done after, but WHY NOT?
Determine first HOW LONG You would like to do it for. (You can anytime shorten or make the period longer).
Use ONE MINUTE EVERY DAY to send a HEALING THOUGHT (or PRAYER) to YOURSELF, and NEXT ONE MINUTE to send to SOMEONE ELSE, or the WORLD,(therefore the name One plus One).
Thoughts have to be expressed as “already being manifested” (as we all know), only with “positive statements”, (for example “I am healing”, or “I heal”, “the Earth is Peaceful”, or “there is Peace on Earth”.
Sounds too easy? Are You doing it already?
Every day two minutes many People TOGETHER makes many minutes of GOOD GOOD ENERGY in and around Us. And it helps for sure! 🙂
BE WITH, and SHARE!
Best wishes to You for 2018! and Hugs from me.
Clean up your Home and your Body, refresh both
Collect to give away things you do not need anymore, or that bind you to unsatisfying memories or persons
Give donations to Charity, or presents to Friends/People in need
Be nice to whoever you meet, and try “smiling for today”, alone or with others
Take time remembering your “best moments” and the “tricky ones” too
Turn on a candle and enjoy looking at the flame
Take time for You without “distractions”, and maybe a present
Take time to dream wonderful Dreams about you, your beloved ones, and the Earth
Meditate sending Light and Healing to someone you know who is not so well
Meditate sending Forgiveness to the ones who have hurt you, and to yourself
Pray, dance, sing, love, go for a good walk…
and your own “best things to do”
Align with the Nature of the Land you are living on, observe it, let it touch you, inspire you and guide you.
Winter is here now, the Power of the North manifests clearer and clearer.
Trees have lost their Leaves, most Green is gone. Energy going in, Beings withdraw…
Black and white, cold, naked, simple, clear, and dormant.
Once done what you need to do, go within for cleansing and selfreflection, quiet the Mind and the Body, observe and listen to yourself, to your Inner Voice. Be truthful about what you hear and see.
Be gentle, as the Darkness of the longest Night is caring and nourishing, it is the Womb from where we entered Life, it is Sacred, and so are you.
Thank for the Teachings of this year, bless People, Beings, All around you.
Forgive you, All around you, allow the Dark to absorb you.
In the longest Night lies the Seed of its Opposite, the Rebirth of the Light, and the promise of a new Beginning.
In our “faults and limitations” lies the Seed of Change, in our Humility, our Power.
The Sun will grow again from now, and so will our inner One.
Celebrate your accomplishments, sharpen your new Intent and Vision, and offer it to the Light. It will shine in/on you, and show you the way.
Like the Sun, we will be Reborn.
Honour the Light, and Trust It.
Good Solstice to us all.
we find ourselves confronting the Judge,
who what is “right”, who what is “wrong”…
The thousands ways and choices disappear
in the Starry Night,
we are so small…
but Beings of Light
…maybe to be found again…
The Judge is killing,
the Judge is teaching,
it removes us from the Now
it tells Lies and Stories, at times the Truth…
… Rules and patterns we created,
what we did, and did not do…
how long did we forget to respect our own Reality…
and to listen to our Heart Voice…
Seeing our patterns is interesting and painful
seeing our Prison is disturbing…
Spying on the Light…
…coming back Alive…
“who am I ?”
“what is my nourishment ?”
“where do I give, where do I take?”
There is a Sky above
and an Earth below,
honour the Temple we are in,
and remember our Souls…
We are here for some Time…
Living is a good Idea…
(…one of my dear clients borrowed my old book, and was touched by this one little poem, therefore I like to share it with You)
I would like to learn to be
transparent, clear, with many facets,
precious as a Diamond,
be able to forget it ,
(from Ombre Luminose, Shining Shadows, 1992)
