Aquarius blogIts always a good time to birth a new vision during an Aquarius new moon. This ritual is all about letting go and cleaning out the old to create our dreams and visions more efficiently and effortlessly.

Be patient and wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give some time to yourself, then sit in the most peaceful spot of a quiet room. Light some candles and burn incense to create an ambient space.

Find a comfortable position, preferably with your spine straight. Close your eyes and become aware of your body. Connect deeply and slowly with your toes, legs, thighs, torso, arms, neck, face and then crown. Inhale calm, relaxing blue light into each area. As you exhale, release any stress, tension and frustration, just breathe them right out of your body. Repeat this process until you feel relaxed and stress free.

Imagine sunlight shining in your solar plexus. See this light increase in strength and vitality. As the flow increases in intensity you begin to feel really alive. Let this energising light flow around your body. It is a slow, gentle process, allowing the energy to find its own flow. If you come across any blockages or grey areas in your body, slowly allow the light to infiltrate these areas, dissolving it. Don’t force anything, just let whatever is happening, happen, without trying to control the process or gain some specific outcome.

If we let go, and see this exercise as a purification ritual we can see beyond the illusion and take personal responsibility for everything that has happened in 2014, we can learn from our mistakes and so do things differently next time.

Use this ritual to forgive yourself for any behaviour, or experience that you can now see was destructive, or self-sabortaging. It is only when we face this shadow side, that we can stop creating negative experiences.

When you feel that the light has done its work, bring yourself gently back to back to the present and open your eyes when it feels right. Now pick up a pen and paper and write down whatever comes to mind. Don’t allow yourself to anal-yze, must-erbate or Shoulding, all over yourself.

The more honest and truthful you are, the more helpful this exercise will be. Be frank about any addictive patterns, habits, or substance abuses. Are they in moderation or are they excessive and damaging? What actions can you take towards helping yourself become more empowered?

What inner guidance did you receive? Did any visions come to mind? Were you given any messages from your higher self? Become your own guru and find your own answers. See yourself breaking through old patterns and striding forward. Open your heart and mind to the guidance of your intuition in the following weeks.

For the next two weeks every morning and evening spend five minutes just looking deep into your eyes in the mirror. If you have never done this before it can be a very difficult exercise and you may find resistance to really seeing yourself. Go beyond the fear and really look deep into your own eyes. From this perspective you can begin to really see yourself from the inside.

Repeat the words ‘I Love You’ over and over, even if you do not really feel it. Once you have got used to saying these words, try and feel the energy of love flowing around your body. The more you do this ritual the easier it will become, and very soon your heart will begin to communicate with you and guide you. Be open to the messages and use the energy of Aquarius to trust yourself enough to make changes and be happy.
