It’s an orange kind of week.
What do I mean??
Well, July has been something of an extreme and August is shaping up to be even more!
First there was a Full moon on the 1st, a New moon on the 15th and now an extremely rare Blue moon. All of this in July. And now, there are five retrogrades going on at the same time!!. Another article for sure..
The energy of the moons plays an important role in our lives.
Full moon helps us manifest all of what we want. The moons glow casts light showing us how to obtain everything. We just need to pay attention and act on what we receive as guidance.
New moon is about setting intent. Moving forward. Growing. New moon forces us to go inside to see the darkness we hide from ourselves. All those hard to overcome obstacles that we tend not to want to deal with are brought to light when the this moon’s energy is upon us.
The rare Blue moon’s energy will propel us into nothing but goodness!!
Blue Moons are a time for taking once-in-a-lifetime chances…
Pushing you to the edge of your comfort zone…
Manifesting your deepest desires…
And experiencing profound transformation in your life.
Now is the time to do something that you’d only consider doing “once in a blue moon.”
And this week, to make all of this energy work it’s time you make room for it. Which is where the color orange comes in.
How can a color help you??
We have the advantage of healing energy all around us. Color just happens to be one of the ways.
The orange color is about taking care of your environment. Your home. Not just the home you live in, but your body too. Right now with the energies the way they are there is a necessity to make your environment more livable, heathy, comfortable and enjoyable.
Cleaning needs to take place!
I’ve often referred the body as a glass jar. Over the years you place important, and not so important, information in there. The cellular memories hang on to everything. Filling up the body. Over time, there is no room left for anything good to come in. When high energy comes, like the power of the moons, it’s hard to take advantage of the help they offer since your body is so full. The color orange becomes a prevalent force to help you clean and discard what you’ve stored. All of that information has to go since it no longer pertains making you happy.
With all this new energy mingling about, you might find yourself raring to go. Feeling like you’re more able to make new decisions about how you want your life to be. And yet, unable to make changes. You might feel fed up and frustrated. You may have the urge to do something… anything at all, that can make you feel better. After all, your ultimate goal is to achieve health and happiness. And now, you’ve probably found yourself searching for what will bring the fun back into your life.
Your starting point should begin at home.
Step one- Clean your house.
Get rid of the dust bunnies…
Scrub the floors…
Vacuum the carpets…
Wash all the bedding…
Clean your closets…Rule of thumb-if you haven’t worn it in a year give it to someone who will. Same goes for everything tucked away in boxes. Give those items to people that will make use of the energy they carry.
Wash the windows, inside and out. There is a need to see clearly.
Step two- It’s time to get physical.
It’s pantry cleaning time!! Toss any processed foods. This means crackers, cookies, and chips too.
Clean your fridge…Get rid of old outdated, moldy foods. Toss everything that has not been touched in a while. I’ve seen salad dressings that had expired dates five years and older.
Clean your body by fasting a few hours each day. It’s always beneficial to eat smaller portions more often, but when the color orange shows up it’s just as important to give your body a break. Stop eating large amounts of food at one time. A rule of thumb is look at your palm. No more than three of your palm size in one siting. Some people drink that amount with just one pop filed container. And some serve their children their palm size instead of the child’s.
Get some sun! You might be thinking- what???? What does sun have to do with cleaning your body? Plenty…..Sun gets the body circulating. The more sun you receive the more on the move your body becomes. You tend to drink more water when it’s sunny opposed to cloudy days. Water moves toxins out of the body. The body sweats in the sun. Again releasing toxins. Remember this energy we are in is about moving out the old to gain room for the new. The body works the same way. Move out those toxins.
Step three- Write out your old life.
Often it is beneficial to write out what you’ve been telling yourself and others about your life. Think back to a time when someone asked you how you’ve been. What did you say to them? Was your story filled with words that portrayed your life as wonderful? Or did you go on and on about all the bad that has happened to you recently or in the past? There will be a need to clean up your story.
Write everything on paper. Seeing, is believing.
Writing is an energetic release.
Don’t leave anything out. Write what comes to mind when you think about your past.
Don’t judge what’s coming. More than once I’ve heard my clients say they’ve done this step. They ask why they need to rehash it again. The reason is…every time you gain clarity you raise your vibrational level, moving you to a new floor. Each time you move, you unconsciously pack your surrounding taking everything with you. Your old story comes with from all levels. Every time you write out your story you release what you are willing to let go of in the level you find yourself in now. Removing a more makes room for new and exciting adventures to happen in each new level you resonate with.
Step four- Give new growth direction.
Now that you’ve cleaned up your body/home there’s room for new growth.
If you do not fill the space you’ve recently cleaned with something you want, energy of any kind will fill it. You may find you will not like what will inhabit the area if you do not do this step. So take charge by writing down your new story.
Ask yourself what you want in life.
Write out plans to achieve what makes you happy. Write out where you’d like to see yourself in the future. Create your new story. Perhaps your new tale has a different career or relationship in it. Or possibly something bigger like a book or new company you’ve been thinking about creating.
Take advantage of empowering yourself by taking the time to direct your life.
Let the color orange along with the moon’s energy help you achieve your new life. The next New moon is August 14th. The next Full Moon is August 29th. And the next color coming in to help you is…..?? I’ll give you a hint…..it’s still wrapped up in the last full moon.
Look for new blog articles to come your way.
One that’s on it’s way will be about the different retrograde patterns we are in and how you can benefit from them.
May you be blessed with an orange kind of week. 🙂
