How do you let go of someone you love?

Let Go, Break-ups

At the time of a Full Moon we often talk about letting go.

Releasing people, things and situations that you feel or know are no longer supporting you in manifesting your dreams into reality. Or, indeed, do not support you in becoming the person who is living the life that you are wanting to align with.

But, how easy is it to just let go?

How easy is it to let go of a relationship and ex that you love, as well invested time and energy into?

How easy is it to let go of a painful memory or experience from your past? Maybe even one that dates back to your childhood.

I know that it’s not always that easy.

Even with the cord cutting meditations, forgiveness practices and ‘letting go’ rituals available via Google, YouTube….. Still some people struggle with letting go and releasing, especially when it comes to love. Letting go for a short while only to fall right back into the arms of that lover and into the familiar chaos.

What’s up with that, huh?

Well, from both my own experience and that of others I’ve noticed a few things that hold people back. So, let me share them with you.


1. You don’t let go of love

When people let go they think this means letting go of the love. The thing is: Can you ever let go of what you perceive to be true and/or unconditional love?

What tends to have the tightest grip is attachment to the experience and the perceived outcome that you believe arises from letting go. (PAUSE. Take that in for a moment.)

This might include:

  • Being single for ever
  • What people might say
  • That person meeting someone else first
  • The regret or shame

Experiences are a natural part of life. With each one and each personal encounter being an opportunity for growth, blessings and new learning. This is what I’ve found often leads us to aligning with what we want, who is truly for us and our best selves.


2. Your motivation

Let’s be real. Sometimes people hold on for selfish reasons. Reasons that are motivated by fear, lack, scarcity or control. All of which are the total opposite of love.

Be honest about why you are holding on and ask yourself if this is really an expression of love.


3. You are not a victim

When faced with the situation of having to let go some people start asking questions such as:

  • Why me?
  • Why is this happening to me?
  • Why can’t I be lucky/find love?
  • What’s wrong with me?

These questions are natural at first yet I’ve found that it doesn’t help to dwell on them. Why? Because you tend to plunge yourself further down into the rabbit hole.

Three questions to ask instead would be:

  • How does it serve me to hold on?
  • How does if serve me to let go?
  • Which brings me to closer to my Divine purpose?

Notice the difference in the energy of these questions and how empowering they have the potential to be.


Letting go is often a process and not something that happens overnight.

Give yourself time and space.

Connect with your mentors, coaches and guides who can often give you fresh perspective or wisdom because they are not in your situation.

Use the guidance that comes through with discernment.

Trust and have faith that you’ll bloom from the experience. Stronger, wiser, more loving and beautiful than before.

With love + gratitude

#fullmoonvibes: Beauty

In the spirit of reinvention and the Full Moon in Leo vibes don’t be afraid to be playful and go bold.

If RiRi’s style of glitter and sparkle is not your thing, then bring it down a notch with adding a little sparkle to your nails or eyeshadow palette.

Leo loves to sparkle and shine. Isn’t about time you do too?

On the flip side the energy is a little intense your now. I, for one have felt and will be slowing down more over the weekend.

If you’re feeling it too then may be you want to slow down too. Doing So, in whatever way feels good for you.

Meditate with your fave crystal to help relax your body, mind and spirit and bring you closer to connecting to the soul wisdom that lies within.

Seeing as Leo is inspired by the heart why not bring your fave heart chakra opening stones into your meditation practice – Rose Quartz, Chrysopase or Jade.

With love 💋✌

#fullmoonvibes: Letting Go + Reinventing

When you let go it makes sense to fill the space with positive energy. Energy that feels good and is in alignment with the real you. Irrespective of the opinions of others.

A bit like the Leo Queen herself, Madonna. She’s reinvented herself many times over the years and is never afraid to be herself.

What’s stopping you from being seen and from showing up as You?

The woman you are becoming is not afraid to show up as her best self. She isn’t afraid of being seen and she isn’t hiding in the shadows.

What do you need to release, cease doing, saying or telling yourself in order to be in alignment with her?

And for the guys eyeing this. This applies to you too. You’re all seeing this for a reason.

Don’t rush. Take your time. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You may even need to dig beyond the limiting stories you’ve inherited and labels you have placed on yourself before you reconnect with the real you.

With love ✌💋

Full Moon 101

The energy of the Full Moon has been making it self known, to me at least, over the last few days. I felt it hit me out of the blue on Monday afternoon and it’s effects have been with me all week. Anyone else?

For the benefit of those who are new to working with the Full Moon, here is a brief Full Moon 101. Please note, this is based on my own understanding, research and experience of Full Moons + working with its energy.

Full Moon in Leo. Eclipse season.

Now, Full Moons have a tendency to stir up the emotions that are lying beneath the surface. Those emotions that have been suppressed and ignored, as well as those that you may not be aware of.

When the moon is full she shines her light on these so that you can see them and feel their energy.

What you’ll often find is that these emotions are in direct opposition to what you say you want to feel and experience more of in your life.

EXERCISE
Think about the intentions you set at the last New Moon or the goals you have yourself for this month/year.

Are the limiting emotions that are coming to the surface now serving you in aligning with those intentions and goals?

Let’s put it this way: If you kept thinking those thoughts, taking those actions, practising those behaviours and emiting that vibration would you receive what you say that you want?

If the answer is no, then you are seeing the gift that the Full Moon in bringing you.

Obviously, this can work the other way too. Whereby, as much as you can see what isn’t serving you. You can also see what is serving you too.

THE GIFT OF THE FULL MOON
The gift of the Full Moon is to shine a light in the darkness, so that you can see what’s been hidden.

This is why working with the energy of the Full Moon can be so useful in guiding you toward aligning with what you want and more importantly, who you truly are.

The only trick is to not resist what’s being highlighted and felt. As I’m sure you already know, resistance restricts the flow and this where you can come up against blocks or feeling like you’re stuck.

Which is why many people find that the Full Moon is a time where they let go, so they can let in what will help them to experience whatever is needed at a soul level for their healing and alignment. Hopefully you’ll find it does the same and more for you too. Let me know in the comments below.

Top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals to use under the Gemini Full Moon

Well, today brings the Full Moon and boy is it making its presence known.

The Full Moon is a time of release and letting go. A time when your emotions will rise to the surface. Opening your eyes to what you need to deal with in order to stay aligned with becoming your true self and making your vision a reality.

However, at the time of a Full Moon, the energy can be intense, emotional, highly charged and overwhelming for moon sensitives. Something that can often lead us to react in haste and create resistance or drama. Yet, the easiest way to work with this energy is to make peace with your past and honor yourself. So, let’s explore my top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals that support you in doing that, whilst being the best version of yourself.

Step out of the darkness & into your light (10)

INNER BEAUTY

Forgiveness

Cleanse and detoxify from any emotions that vibrate lower down the energy scale by practicing forgiveness towards yourself and others. Reflect on who has ruffled your feathers over the last 4 weeks, as well as those associated with emotions that are currently rising to the surface.

For a specific person imagine the person is sat in front of you. You are both surrounded by a sphere of white. As you look that person in the eye repeat: “I forgive you. I release you. I let this and you go with love, with love and with grace. You go your way and I’ll mine. It is done. It is done. It is done.”

To enhance your ability to connect with the energy of forgiveness recite these words whilst listening to your favourite meditation music or binaural beats.

Gratitude

When people release they often forget to fill the space they’ve opened up with energy that feels good and aligns you with your desires. Then they tend to fill the space with the same crap from before. Therefore it’s wise to lay the foundations of what you want to experience through a daily practice of gratitude.

Each morning before your feet hit the ground say ‘thank you‘ and find 10 things to be grateful for. Say your gratitude list in your mind or write it down in a journal. Writing is a powerful way to impress your desires upon your mind and it really enhances the feeling if you give a reason why you are grateful too. Try these: “I am grateful to have _______ because ________.” “I am so happy and grateful for ___________ because ________.”

Let Go

Honour all that is coming up for you at this time and give yourself permission to let it all go. When you release what isn’t serving you, you will make room for something or someone better to take its place. Most importantly, you open the space for releasing the lower vibrational energy attached to that emotion, of which is contributing to making your current reality what it is. Perform this Letting Go ritual from my free ebook ‘She Let Go’.


OUTER BEAUTY

Be Seen

The moon shines brightest when she is full and so should you!

Gemini energy resonates with the throat chakra: communication, your voice, how you listen, speaking your truth…… The colour for this chakra is blue and incorporating more of this colour into your life can facilitate in strengthening it. Colours carry their own vibration which we can tap into. An easy way to do this is through our style, make-up and nails. Cleopatra style with a bold blue eyeshadow or embrace the winter nails look with blue polish.

Energy cleanse: Ritual Baths

Your skin is the largest organ of your body for detoxification. One way that you can aid your skin in releasing toxins from your body is by enjoying the ritual of a cleansing salt bath. It is also a beautiful way to blend together both the body and the spirit/your inner and outer beauty.

For centuries both Himalayan and Epsom salts have been known for containing minerals that help to remove toxins from the body, improving your health, skin conditions, relieving stress and clearing your energy field. Set the mood by lighting a candle and having your favourite crystals close by, before adding 2-3 handfuls of your chosen salt into your bath an soak for 20 minutes or so. As you relax in your bath set the intention to let go of all energy that is no longer serving you and welcomes in energy that supports your Highest good.


This Full Moon has the potential to really support you in preparing for 2019, so it’s well worth working with the energy to get aligned. So, enjoy working with the energy!

With love xo

Full Moon in Taurus spotlight: Relationships, Beauty + Money

The relationships that stand the test of time are those built upon solid foundations.

Relationships of all kinds are up for review with the energy of the Full Moon in Taurus, with Venus Retrograde still sitting in the background.

I’ve been taking inventory of mine. Building upon the intentions set at the time of the previous New Moon and beginning of the Venus Retrograde. Those relationships that were obscuring the view have been lovingly moved along. Only those built upon solid foundations will naturally follow me on my onward journey.

The message for this time is typical of a Full Moon, yet all the more prominent at this time:

Don’t be afraid to let go of what or who no longer fills your cup.

Taurus energy is grounded. Hard working. Whilst also enjoying the finer things in life, including looking good.

Do you feel worthy of the good things in life?

Do you give yourself permission to look and feel beautiful on the outside too?

The affirmations of:

  • I am worthy.
  • I am deserving.
  • I am more than enough.

All come into play when Taurus energy is around. Because an aligned Taurus soul believes in themselves!

Ultimately, allow the Full Moon to shed light on what is ready to be released in order for you to expand and become the best version of you. And remember as you give yourself permission to do this you will unconsciously give others the permission to do the same.

With love xo

Transformation. Evolving. Dissolving resistance at the Full Moon.

ANGELIC REIKI

The new season has brought with it the energy of change and transformation. Something that many of us at experience at our own level.

I’ve found that transformation, growth and evolving will bring with it that sudden rush of excitement, wonder, curiosity, and hopefulness. This is often followed by resistance. Fear. Guilt.

The happy hormones take a break and give your cells some time to catch up with the all the newness that you are conjuring up!

In my own world, I have tended to find this a week where resistance tends to be at it’s strongest under the gaze of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon heightens our emotions. Bringing to the surface all of the things and people that are in opposition to that which we want to experience, especially in relation to the intentions set at the time of the New Moon. So, this has become a time that I have used this time to “go with the flow” as much as I possibly can. Rather than resisting what is coming up, I’ve tried to flow with it and allow it to be released.

So, I know that sometimes is much easier said than done!

This is especially the case when the old ways, old faces and old places resurface. Reminding you of what needs to be released or shifted to support you in aligning with the new.

To support you through this I’ll share my own magical keys for working with the energy of the Full Moon to facilitate transformation and evolving:

TUNE IN

Your body will tell you when it needs to rest. Your intuition will let you know when it’s time to pause or move forward. Your soul team will guide you towards what is for you right now. Tune in. Do so with meditation, prayer, writing or awareness.

PRAYER

A simple prayer focused towards the solution. One of my favourites is:

“Thank you for showing me where to go, what to do and what to say to whom.”

Another of my favourites is: “I surrender.” Two simple words that can lighten the load. An invitation to God and soul team to take the reins.

CONNECTION

Connection to self or like-minded people. Somehow they both tend to lead back to one another. To fill you up and raise your vibration. To bring you back to centre when you fall.

In the Full Moon ebook, I have also included further tools and practices from my own spiritual vanity case.

I will leave you here, yet I truly hope that you will pivot towards releasing (or whatever else you feel you need right now) so that you can stick with your new intentions, desires, and transformation.

If you could do with a little something extra I will share some notes of inspiration here too.

Day 4: Crystals + your feminine spirit

One thing I’ve increasingly noticed is the tendency for women to push aside their femininity in order to stay on top of their game at work or simply survive in the workplace. Something that I’ve been guilty of myself. However, as I and many others have learned, living your life in that way isn’t sustainable. It soon takes its toll on you physically and drains your spirit.

It’s partly due to this that so many women find this burning desire within to quit their jobs or simply find themselves attracted to spirituality, as well as mindful practices.

However, it’s not just the practices and rituals, it’s that opportunity to reconnect with yourself as a woman. Awakening your femininity and embracing all that it means to be the woman that you were created to be.

This full embodiment of the real you is something that many of us strive for, yet do so by focusing on6 all that is outside of ourselves first. Not recognising that it all comes from within first and radiates outwards. Being shown as grace, inner confidence and that elusive glow. Isn’t that what you want to experience and embody?


RECLAIMING YOUR FEMININE SPIRIT

Although all of the crystals we have encountered have touched on aspects of our inner beauty that many of us want to nurture, eg: Self-love and confidence. Today’s crystals will focus on reclaiming and fully awakening your femininity.

Moonstone

As its name suggests this crystal is aligned with the energy of the moon. So don’t be surprised if you are drawn to Moonstone during your menstrual cycle or at the time of the Full and New Moon. Its also a crystal that connects you to your own femininity, inner goddess and sacred beauty. With many swearing by the benefits of meditating with Moonstone during the time of the Full/New Moon, enhancing your intuition and connection within. What’s more feminine than that?

Garnet

This crystal is perfect for those who are ready to bring their sexy back and unleash their wild spirit. Garnet is a crystal associated with passion and physical love. It also dissolves any blockages in the lower chakras which is where we can often hold onto those feelings and memories that prevent us from fully connecting with ourselves, as well as others.

Labradorite

A stunning stone to look at, Labradorite is considered a ‘magic stone’. A stone that has the ability to reawaken the magic that lies within you and opens you up to using it in order to manifest, as well as being good luck into your life.


WORKING WITH THE PHASES OF THE MOON

Crystal rituals can be completed at any time, although the Full Moon is particularly potent time to connect with your divine feminine.

This is because the moon is at its fullest and it’s a powerful time to honor all of what your feeling, whilst releasing what is no longer in alignment with the woman you are becoming.

Equally, if you feel drawn, you may want to also work with your divine feminine crystals during a new moon, especially if you wanting to embody new aspects of your personality. Reason being that the new moon is a time of calling in the new and fresh starts.

Incidentally, there is a New Moon next week on June 13th so that’s the perfect time to connect with your feminine crystals.

Energy update: Full Moon in Sagittarius

Beauty isn’t just about how you look on the outside. It’s also about how you feel on the inside too.

And often you find that when you feel amazing on the inside + you’re self-worth is intact, you radiate a glow from the inside out.

This is the vibration that the Full Moon in Sagittarius is inviting you to step into.

What must you release + what must you embrace to make this a reality?

Scorpio ‘Pink’ Full Moon: Heal + Transform

On the 29th/30th of April we have a full ‘pink’ moon in Scorpio. Hailed as a moon that is offering inside out transformation that opens the door to becoming the best version of you and manifesting those seeds of desire that you’ve planted. How can you personally make the most of this energy? Let’s find out as we explore the energy of this Full ‘Pink’ Moon in Scorpio.


A LITTLE BACKGROUND TO THIS FULL MOON

This Full Moon is meant to stir things up. Stirring it up and bringing them out into the open (or, at least for you to see) in order to begin that ripple effect of change + transformation. Something that is very much needed if you are to uplevel, become your best self and live a life that you love. Rather than a life that you pretend to love when you post happy pics on Instagram.

It’s meant to really wake you up to the truth that you’ve been avoiding, ignoring or pushing deep below the surface.

Much of what it’s stirring up are feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs related to Yourself. Particularly those that relate to how you show up in the world and in important relationships. Some of these things might include:

  • Jealousy
  • Envy
  • Greed
  • Neediness
  • Fakeness

Being a karmic year 11/2 you’re likely to find that what is coming up for you are things that have been plaguing you for most of your life. Those pesky repetitive patterns, cycles and behaviours that you keep you stuck in victim mode or in your comfort zone.

Are you ready to see + release them?

Yet, on the flip side Scorpio Full Moon energy is sexy and mysterious, as well as deeply intuitive too. All of which are energies that can be put to optimal use at this time, especially when navigating the beautiful world of romantic relationships.

On the other hand, maybe you need to remember how to be more sexy, mysterious in your daily life, whilst using the gift of intuition to feel you way into situations.

Which is it to be for you?

Scorpio Full Moon’s are a time for deep cleansing and healing. A real releasing of the things that stand in opposition of your transformation. Yet, when embraced can have the impact of leading you to the breakthrough and transformation that you’ve been waiting for.


WHY SHOULD I TAKE NOTICE OF THE FULL MOON?

You don’t have to take notice of the Full Moon and many people don’t. Blissfully living their lives unaware of the emotions, feelings and energy that comes up for and around them at this time.

Yet, for those who are willing it’s the optimal time for purging, letting go and forgiveness. All key ingredients for soul growth, personal development, healing and uplevelling in life.

Full Moon’s are like the harvest point of the moon cycle. The point where you can reap the rewards of the seeds of desire and intention that you have planted. Where those crops of desire are not ready to be harvested it becomes a time of reflection, introspection and release. A time when you use the gift of awareness to support you as you go within and identify:

  • What is ready to be released
  • Who you can forgive

This can make it an emotional time, especially for those who are moon sensitive, lightworkers/warriors, psychic, water signs or in the midst of a soul/spiritual awakening. You guys will most likely feel all the feels when the moon is full because the moon governs our emotions.

When the moon is Full it’s bright and it literally shines a light in and on the darkness. This is why you will often find that buried thoughts, feelings, memories and shadow parts of the self are more apparent under the Full Moon. These things become more obvious when our soul is ready for us to release those aspects that are standing in the way of us awakening, progressing or just simply moving on.

How will you respond to what’s coming up for you at this time?


WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

As Jay-Z said you can’t heal what you don’t reveal. The Scorpio Full Moon is doing a lot of revealing so you’re job is to be Aware.

Notice what is coming up for you at this time and over the last few days because this stuff is the dominant energy that you bring to every table that you sit at. It introduces in real time, through text and over social media, even if you haven’t been aware of it. This energy is contributing to and creating your current reality. Leading you to repeat the same patterns with different faces and in different places.

Some key questions to ask yourself might include:

  • What is ready to be released?
  • What isn’t really helping me to manifest what I want?
  • What am I going to do about it?
  • What is helping me to expand, heal and uplevel?
  • What are/is the lessons here?

Incidentally, this energy of release and transformation have been dominant themes in this week’s 5 days of divine messages with the cards over on my Instagram page. You may want to check it out for further insight and guidance.

Also, it helps to have that perspective that life is happening for you not to you. Just sit with that for a moment and notice how empowering that feels.


WHAT TOOLS CAN I USE TO SUPPORT ME?

Your best tool is your own commitment to change, healing and your own personal development. Are you really willing to face the truth? Are you really willing to take the necessary steps towards your own healing and transformation?

Some other tools include:


This gorgeous Full Moon really is here to help you to break through and bring you back to yourself. Yet you have to be prepared to do your part too.

Healing is a process and what this Full Moon is doing is really peeling back the layers of the darkness and dislodging those limiting beliefs and fears. Something which I talk about more here. It’s up to you to decide how best to invest your time + resources to make the most of it.

Remember change starts with you!
