This is the third of 6 Supermoons we will have in 2015!
A Supermoon is the coincidence of a Full Moon or a New Moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit. When this happens, the Moon may seem bigger and brighter in the sky and the tides will be higher than normal.
Halfway through the cycle, the Full Moon will be close to apogee, and the immediately before and after New Moons can also be Supermoons. Thus there may be as many as three Supermoons per Full Moon cycle.

A Supermoon is a powerful astrological period. It is believed that during the period of a Supermoon any magickal workings performed are more effective and more powerful.
In this time of a Super New Moon, new ideas and sudden insights may increase in one’s mind. It is also the time to cleanse and purify one’s body and mind and to perform any magick related to inner harmony and peace.
Coinciding with the Total Solar Eclipse and the Spring Equinox, this Super New Moon is the perfect time to perform any magick, rituals and ceremonies related to Solar Eclipse, New Moon and Ostara.

We cleanse and detox our body because we know how important good health is and how amazing it makes us feel. But what about cleansing and detoxing our mind? What about all the toxic thoughts, conditioning, and programming that have built up over the years?

There’s no real benefit in drinking green juices to fuel your body and then filling your mind up with negativity, jealousy, judgment, anger, or rage. There’s no real benefit in filling yourself up with kale chips and all healthy greens and then self-destructing with negative thinking, alcohol, or drugs. There’s no real benefit in going to the gym every day to be strong and then letting others abuse you and walk all over you.

What good are any of these things doing if your mind is not functioning at an optimal level; and you don’t feel love for yourself; and you don’t live a predominantly positive, happy, and peaceful life?

If you want to create change and move forward in your life you MUST work on your mind. A healthy mind leads to a healthy, happy, and confident YOU!

Sage To Cleanse Your Aura And Clear Your Space

Mind Body Green writes:

Whenever I burn sage (aka smudging) at my yoga studio before a session, I’ve heard comments like: “It smells like weed in here!” Or, “What smells like barbecue?” And then there’s my all time favorite, “It smells like my grandmother’s cemetery.”

Sure, dried white ceremonial sage has a distinctly beautiful scent when burned. And if you’re new to this practice, just try to be open minded about it.

Smudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. The smoke from dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.

Smudging is ritual alchemy — changing and shifting the air element, and transforming our current experience to a mystical one.

The use of incense and other smoke and vapor to connect humans to the spirit world, can be easily traced throughout the East in parts of Asia and even dating as far back to Ancient Greece.

The use of dried white sage however, is a 2,000 year old Indigenous practice. The shamans used dried sage plants on their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits. Any conflict, anger, illness or evil was absorbed by the sage smoke to be released or cleansed from the energy field of a person.

This ancient shamanic mystical ritual is a simple one to incorporate into your daily or weekly routine, or any time you feel like you might need a little aura polishing. You can never really smudge too much!

Some ideal (or necessary) times to sage smudge your aura and/or space would be:

  • When you move into a new living space
  • When you begin a new job or start your own business
  • Before and after a guest enters your home
  • Before and after a yoga or healing session
  • Before meditation
  • After an argument or any illness
  • Upon returning home from crowded situations

Conscious Cleanse: Day One

I’ve decided to document each day on my 14 day cleanse, because i’m sure there will be some ups and downs so why not share!

PS- this is based off the healthy wellness cleanse from the book The Conscious Cleanse by Jo Schaalman and Julie Pelaez (bonus: Julie is a fellow graduate from the Institute for Integrative Health!)

Day One “Action Step”: Journal for 15 minutes.

I did this and while I thought I would have nothing to write about, I actually easily flowed through 15 minutes of writing.

It actually ended up being all the reasons I am proud of myself. That was a nice surprise :D

Meal Plan:

Breakfast: Green Smoothie

Lunch: Huge “Rainbow Salad” w/ homemade balsamic vinegar

Snack: Fruit Salad (Bananas + Grapes)
            Tall Black coffee

Dinner: Brown Rice with broccoli and side of asian vegan slaw (green cabbage, green onions, slivered almonds)

Dinner (Round 2): 1 Turkey Burger + Zucchini noodles w/ homemade pesto + fresh basil 

Snack/Dessert: Homemade almond milk chai tea

Accomplishment: I DID NOT GIVE INTO TEMPTATION! My dad had Reese’s oreos in the cupboard which looked great but I know this is only 2 weeks out of my life that I am consciously committing to eating according to the plan. Not out of deprivation, but out of love for my health and body. 

Around dinner time (my time when I become hungry, cranky, tired, and tempted beyond belief) I thought about giving up but kept going. Didn’t give into the Noodles & Co. that I was craving haha. 

To Work On: Drinking more water! I barely had any water which is unlike me.

Exercise: 45 minutes on the elliptical and ~20 of stretching 


I revamped my gemsona and made them agate

Agate is a stone of strength and courage; it tones and strengthens the mind & body, grounding and stabilising emotions and physical energy. Agate helps with the acceptance of oneself and to see the truth. Its healing and cleansing qualities eliminate negative energy, soothing and calming the mind, body & spirit. 

I thought it would be neat if the gemstone you had was what you had to work towards character development wise. 

There weapon is a pickaxe that when it hits the ground can release a sonic shockwave of sorts?? 

Also I thought like the goal is mostly to try to hit someone’s gem during battle with it to crack it. 

Anyway, they are a member of yellow diamonds army and generally short tempered. They like to think of themselves as an evil cool guy but are actually quite soft hearted beneath the tough exterior they put up. lol they really don’t like following orders from (generally obnoxious) higher ups.

Exercise cleanses the mind, body, and soul. It provides clarity, peace, and hope. Don’t ever think a run can’t be life changing. A leg day can’t fix your issues. Yoga can’t clear your mind.

In the chaos, stress, and insanity of life, one of the few things I am certain of is physical activity’s ability to keep me alive. To provide for my mental, emotional, and physical health.

Move. It will change your life.

Things about 10x15 “The Things They Carried” #5

I cannot believe that in some way now something plays out on screen I always wanted the show to do, something I had been toying around with in my head as a scenarios over and over again. :’)

Okay, I had pictured the sweat lodge and cleansing aspect of it to happen by Dean and Sam working a case with native american origin and then somehow Dean would partake in that smudging and sweating ritual to cleanse the body and cleanse the mind on the road to recovery and healing.

But I take this scenario here as well, because… Damn, if it ain’t a beautiful thing fitting to the storyline at hand which is all about cleansing and healing in the end?

A calming silence reigns over the Hakurei Shrine. A silence so serene it’s relaxing…and boring as well, in a way. The shrine maiden of paradise has just finished sweeping the fallen leaves from the floor: that’s enough cleaning for today.
Now, time for some serious training. What’s it for today again? Meditating under a cold waterfall for three hours: a traditional ritual practiced in order to cleanse the body and strengthen the mind… also an easy way to catch a cold. But Reimu’s thoughts about cold water stop when she overhears footsteps walking the shrine’s stone stairs.

The miko leaves the broom she was using to sweep the floor hanging by a wall. Sporting a gentle smile, she goes to the front gate, to greet her visitor. “Welcome to the Hakurei Shrine… oh, it’s just you”.

The smile Reimu had just a moment ago is gone, now replaced by an expressionless face. “Hi Marisa, Do you want some tea?. I have sake too. Which do you prefer?”

in my dreams i see blue fire; see great range lands flash to char. It is dusk and large birds flood like smoke into the sky, and from the wilderness comes a noise I cannot bring with me to the waking world. A warm wind— bitter with ash— washes in from the East. I smell it Take it into my lungs and my dream-mouth fills with honey. And I hold this gift soft in my jaw and the world burns and flakes and becomes nothing. It is in these dreams that I know that i am Chosen. When I wake I go to my window, and below is the street and the city stretching toward the horizon. I see them: at my job, on the subway. They drink their coffee, read their papers, live through the patterns of their lives. They do not understand. They cannot see what I am. Cannot see my purpose. And when last light falls away from the horizon, I will cleanse my body and ready my mind. And in my dreams, my heart will open to the heavens, and I will wait here for my signal.
