Full Cold Moon
Full Cold Moon
By Tara Sutphen
The Full Cold Moon (Native American) at 7* Cancer will culminate December 28, 2012 2:21am PST/5:21am EST (Farmers Almanac).
We survived the media hype of December 21, 2012 and this Full Cold Moon readily reminds us to support and cherish our family and friends. We are to focus on what is important to our very soul and heart, and what it means to live and love. Yes, back to everyday reality and no fear, getting back to the cycle of life. Have you been overly nostalgic over the holidays, what have you been thinking of and whom sit’s in your mind’s eye. What is it that you would like to re-create. You may not have your family to call upon, but there is a world full of people. Calling up memories might seem to be better off avoided, but there is some research to suggest if you aren’t over indulging in sentimentality it actually is healthy for your self esteem. To remember fondly the really happy moments and enjoying small pleasures such as the smell of your grandmothers or mothers cooking, outings with your parents, laughing with your siblings or friends is beneficial. It can make you feel less lonely too, remembering every minute may not be an interesting one but there are those memories that were meaningful. And somehow these puzzle pieces of a past, shape you.
Your history forms how you handle your life. It also tells how you take care of yourself. Do you let negative incidences weigh you down or did you learn to grow into who you’ve chosen to be. Your life is created by you. Even how you’ve reacted to the people, places and things you felt you had no control over. Many times we are given opportunities to change and develop, yet we miss the boat. Staying in loveless situations or struggling every day on some level. It’s up to us to take care of the mind and body. We’re given scenes to free ourselves over and over again. No doubt we have our reasons. Could you go over that justification, one more time…
Open your heart for love, open your mind for understanding, open your life to happiness again. Let it all In. Create it! Journal Questions:

What do you need to make joy
Let’s concentrate on the pleasurable moments that shape us for now…learn to recreate a fulfilled and celebrated life. We all know what makes us unhappy, really work to instill within your psyche all the little nuances of enjoyment. When you practice joy, you’ll get good at it and then it will become a natural routine.
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”~Albert Einstein (German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955) Repost if you want www.tarasutphen.com
The Moon Ritual
Meditation & Sleep Programming Although you would ideally do this meditation outTrack beneath the full moon, you can also experience it by imagining the moon and four directions as you are surrounded with magical energy … a rainbow of light. In the Goddess’ name, you open to the light. You can actually stand up and raise your palms to the sky or imagine this process of being energized and rejuvenated. Facing North you ask for solutions to your problems and experience many blessings. Facing East you seek solutions and prosperity while trusting yourself to make the right choices. Following many blessings, you turn to the South and ask for increased self-esteem and harmonious relationships with the people in your life. After the blessings, you turn to the West to face your destiny and ultimate potentials. Open your mind and release your courage. The ritual ends with the moon as your guiding light on the shadowed path. It illuminates your dreams as you walk steadfast and proceed on your earthly journey with an open heart. Track 2: A beautiful sleep programming version of the ritual. Listen as your cross over into sleep and explore the four directions into your dreams.
