August 27th at approximately 1:32am, the Full Moon was at its brightest and highest. It finds comfort in the space of the two fishies- the ever deep Pisces sign. The last water sign of the zodiac community, the Pisces serves as the epitome of the deepest and strongest of emotional resonance that you can find in yourself (you may have thought it was cancer; they are just moody lol). This a powerful moon not only because it resides in Pisces but also brother sun, is floating around in mother nature’s sign, Virgo— The healer. This dichotomy seeks balance and harmony between the sun’s rational and the moon’s spiritual appetite.
Going into this meditation I was very excited because these last two months have been filled with a lot of life changes, transitions, and of course — a plethora of retrogrades, and it seems like we can’t catch a break. For some reason though, I was prepared, optimistic, and welcoming to this full moon. With that being said, I decided to embark on a moon water meditation. What’s moon water meditation you ask? Well, it’s an experience where you meditate with mother moon but you incorporate a physical glass of water in which you set your personal intentions according to the water, and after the water absorbs the moon’s energy, you end your meditation with drinking the water for the ultimate moon vibration indulgence — it’s quite lovely.
I typically practice meditation alone, and that was my intention but just as I started to set up my incense and space, my mom actually asked if she could take part in my meditation. This was actually really a lovely moment cause i’ve been meaning to have a connected and special moment with my mom since I came to 757 to speak on some things and clear my mind. We got our water, aligned our space, and prepared our minds. Rooted and grounded in the space that we had, we began our guided meditation w/ a youtube video (Bringing Back Balance Channel - m.youtube.com/watch?v=tysHEigMDbA) .
I tend to utilize a mixture of guided and personal meditation because I like to see various perspectives of mindfulness. This meditation was warming because it encouraged us to release and restore ourselves, letting go of any burden or back-up that we needed to move passed — emphasizing the essence of the full moon. At the end of it, my mom and I shared our intentions, mine being related to “the removal of attachment to worldly possessions ( money, clothes, status, etc) and hers being the removal of hatred. Post-meditation, we had a healthy conversation about human relevance, fulfillment, family, and the continuation of practice. Not to mention, she just recently explored the vast mountains of Denver, CO, for 2 week, so she elaborated on that magical experience.
We spoke on the self, family, goals, sadness, cleansing, and release. Each topic just as important and relevant as the next. You know, that’s the main mission after all, to find connectness in all aspects of life. I encouraged my mom to keep with her practice. When the guide said “release negative energy from your mind,” it’s simple for us to find something to release because we harbor such a overwhelming amount of negative energy in our mind and body, but as we continue to cleanse and purge our human selves, there will be a time where there is NO NEGATIVE entity to purge, that’s when we have reached a clear mind - true salvation. I want us all to get to this place in life. This level of clarity takes days, months, and sometimes (MOST TIMES) years but the main goal is to remember to work towards that, in whatever capacity.
I’m constantly following a wavelength of activity with my yoga and meditation practice and at times I get discouraged but I try to remind myself that it’s ok, I have to embrace inconsistency as much as consistency. That’s me accepting nature and the universe as the all knowing and all powerful, I can not overtake that, despite how much time and energy I put into “making things work.”
This aspect of my life will always be true and dear to me and it warms my heart to be able to connect and share this space and practice with someone so special to me. My challenge to you all is to find a practice that you can share with your loved ones—whoever they may be. You will gain so much from it and they may gain x100 as much.
My main takeaway from my meditation and intention was the removal of attachment. The over arching theme was rooted In a quote that I read that stated:
”attached to nothing, connected to everything.”
This is is my current life goal and focus. I have the power to achieve this lifestyle and I WILL harness this level of vibration.
Love yourself and your peers and all will fall into place. The universe is simply waiting for you to show it what you’re made of. Love you all—until next time. Happy Full Moon!
