Ritual for Energy Evolving Toward the Light
This Ritual has proven to be difficult to write, with many versions started and discarded over the last few days. On one hand, there is self-care and confidence energy around us that, if worked through in a positive manner, can be incredibly healing. But there is also a dark energy around, conducive to bad decision making. They are opposite of each other. There is a fork in the road coming and this Full Moon allows us – challenges us really - to make the choice on how we are going to decide the next path. This fork in the road and multiple rituals must be the combo of the Solar Eclipse and Mercury in Retrograde.
We are in the midst of change energy. It is divine timing combined with soul lessons. This energy is asking a lot of us but also letting us know that there are light and dark paths in this world and giving us reasons not to take the dark path. I don’t know anyone personally that would take a dark path, but I am setting an intention for our world and community leaders to take the light path. The right path.
As I check in with friends and clients, I am hearing about these big shifts that are happening. We are being faced with worst case scenarios or decade-old triggers and, if we are doing our work, we are changing how we interact with these situations. It’s exciting and magical but it can also be scary and overwhelming. Some of us are finally coming out of major soul darkness while some of us may be just entering it. It’s important to remember that we are all learning and living together and that divine timing happens for important reasons that we do not know about until much later in the process.
This process has shown up in my world as a trigger from each decade I have been alive, physically and emotionally, showing up in my life and inquiring if I am really ready to heal and move forward. By the end of this process I had to laugh at how quick and deep these lessons were coming. What I came away with were things that had previously dreadfully dark for me, painful and confusing, finally having no power over me. I faced them, I healed and I realized that the growth and healing experience can be joyful. If I can face my nightmares right before my birthday and spend the day smiling, I want to keep moving forward.
One thing I see coming out of this post-eclipse event is the need for self-care and community care. It’s so strong that I am not sure the way we have been living is the way we will be living going forward. Just because the old ways say we have to do something a certain way doesn’t mean it’s our truth anymore. I have seen this in my own health journey but also in our society and community. We need to become comfortable with the energy of evolving, because it’s our future.
The reason this ritual has been so difficult is because it’s the first full moon since the solar eclipse. It’s the big energy of how change has happened since the eclipse, but it’s also a full moon with a fork in the road. Light vs. Dark. Are you ready to embrace the energy of evolving toward the light?
Ritual for Evolving Energy
Let’s start this Ritual by asking ourselves, how are we evolving in our life since the Solar Eclipse? Are there any themes that we see emerging? Has there been any healing since the eclipse in your life? Where are you feeling this energy in your life? Let’s sit in silence as we consider these questions or take a long walk in nature. Let’s just connect to the earth while we work on them. There is so much water energy right now in certain places, let’s ground to the earth. When you are ready, write down where you see this evolve energy in your life. What are you ready to let go of while also knowing new things are already here? Where are you ready to commit to moving forward? Or, where are you resisting while having the urge or hearing the little voice telling you to change. These are all examples of change energy. We want to honor this energy during this Full Moon. If you can, bury these slips of paper in the earth. Ground them. If you can’t do this, keep them in your journal but put a flower or a leaf in the page to infuse the grounding energy. We have so much Fire and Water energy happening right now that we need to tend to the earth.
I have been using this theme of the Earth and the grounding energy to realize the lifestyle changes I need to make. I am starting to realize the paradigms of how I thought life should be are ready to be dismantled and rebuilt. I have been doing this with my life in general and also in physical ways. I am fixing my deck with one of my oldest friends, someone I adore. He can fix anything, he has a huge heart and there is a glimmer of joy around him, but he is at a point where he must choose the right path. I believe he is starting to see what he needs, but it requires the dismantling of what he thinks should happen and what he is willing to put up with. He is asking himself if he is ready to live with light and joy. I am learning to be physically active in to fixing things and cleaning up after projects. I am learning that if I move slowly through a project, it is a joy not a burden. If I go back to the basics, I can be joyfully present. If I take care of myself on a daily basis, I can get more done. I am dismantling and rebuilding my life in many ways, but I am in control of this project.
Let’s take this week to slow down and be present to the necessary evolution. Let’s help each other when we can and help ourselves when we need it. Let’s prepare to work towards balance. We need it.
