Full moon meditation (Invitation Message from Anita Nuss)
This is meditation is for my Full moon Dreamers over at Moon Mama Jamie Ridler's Moon Full Moon circle.
Here is a meditation that I am dedicating to the new open hearted and sharing Autumn that we are now moving towards.
I focus of letting go of angst and welcome gratitude as I lay back and gather my harvest.
In Taoism the Autumn is related to the Spleen area and this is related to assimilation and the pause before the next phase of activity. So I give thanks for all that has been before this slowing down and gathering period.

I AM ENERGY CREATION, MOVEMENT AND PASSION.
MY SACRED FIRE IS THE SEAT OF MY SOUL'S EMPOWERMENT
THE FIRE ENERGY OF DEATH AND REBIRTH
IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF MY NATURE.
I AM CREATIVITY, RENEWAL AND ENERGY IN MOTION
I AM LIFE.

I am now setting my intentions on the New Moon as opposed to the Full Moon. So I have absconded over to the Artful Life Moon Circle for new intentions but being a loyal Lioness I will still continue to post Full Moon getting rid of 'intentions' with the Full Moon Mama Jamie and her Dreamers from time to time.
I'm a Leo and this is my moon ..... (typical Leo style) .so I am gonna use this time to be very fiery and creative in my ritual of intentions today, and tap into my solar energy.
This New Moon be creative (fire/leo) when setting your intentions or creating your Newl moon ritual. Farmers plant specific seeds during the phases of the moon what-is-lunar-planting/ so seed your own specific goals,intentions, and dreams today. Focusing on what you wish to manifest in your life as opposed to what you don't want in your life.
This site has a full break down of this new moon, and rituals or exercises that you can do during this time.
I would also like to share a moon salutation if you wish to get physical.
My intention for the New moon is;
- Renewal of Health- after a 3 day cleanse
- More play and rest into my life
- A Book publishing deal
- Travel- holiday or break.

Maxwell "Pretty Wings" (Official music Video) [[NEW song 2009]]
During my yoga practice I was feeling a little angry which really confused me (most of the time yoga gives me a blissful feeling).
Before my morning practice I was feeling great after a 3 day apple cleanse and detox . As the feeling came up during my practice I became the witness and worked through the postures as the emotions came and went in a flutter like fashion. I concluded that the emotion was a release from restriction of writing my book and my courses. The past few months have been pretty hectic and I have been pretty grown up with my actions and now its time to play and rest.
So before I make a list of how to fix this mood /feeling or naval gaze on a mountain ... I shall just let go and polish my wings for a while and not take life so seriously..it's the weekend and time to be dreamy , relaxed and have to have fun.
Have a great weekend...

Well I wish to open the door to possibility and movement.
OSHO: Don't Use this Planet Like a Waiting Room
Has always been something I struggle with.
Running here, running there...over committing myself to tasks that eventually overwhelm me..
But lately I have stopped ...because I can't do it all , and actually I don't want to do it at all .
Right now I am an concerned with being in the Moment, enjoying life and cooking lovely wholesome food. I have also been creating lovely things that doesn't need to be seen or sold either, as the process of creating is really healing for me after giving out so much as a Coach and teacher, even if I enjoy my job.
So my Wish is to live in the moment and to dance through my life as much as possible....and have fun... after all this life is not is not a 'rehearsal' and the planet is not a waiting room.
And so it is....

Intuition lead me to look at the intentions placed around the full moon.. Change has been on my mind constantly as I wind down from a very rollercoaster year. I really want to change some area's in my life so I have decided to work with releasing during the full moon and manifesting during the new moon, in true moon ritual tradition. Therefore I will not be posting my dream boards during the full moon (until there is change :-)) but I will be checking in with every bodies manifestations.
In line with this moon falling within a fire month I did a fire ceremony. burning phrases and things that represented all the things that I no longer wished for in my life..
Before the ceremony I was feeling very low in spirit and mood so having a cleansing bath was like a purging of negativity and stress that had been in my energy field. I felt much more clearer after the releasing, and realised how much I needed to focus on letting go
during a strong full and pregnant moon.
Now I can look forward to creating my dreamboard during the New moon.

It's been a very challenging time for me Wrecking my Journal.
I haven't kept up with posting and kinda stopped wrecking the journal...
Life got busy, far too busy and the reason that I spent so much time working hard was so that I could have the summer off or at least a good few weeks and finally finish my Creative Healing workbook.
So unfortunately my book club 'postings ' for Jamie's Wreck this Journal suffered...
Now I vow to never let my creative space/time suffer, as creativity is balance in a busy life.
Anyway back to the book...
At first I was excited as I wrote my name especially faintly
I didn't mind the burning, tearing, poking holes, drawing fat and thin lines, coloring, ripping, scratching, crumpling , chewing and circling in the book.
However I felt really uncomfortable with the book's exercise that called for dripping food on it .....my book then disappeared.....
Destruction in progress
So after the food pouring episode I have resumed play, and even if I am a bit late at the finish line I shall enjoy the next few weeks destroying this book along with the other things in my life such as activities that take me away from my playtime.
In the meantime I look forward to reading your blogs, watching videos and listening to your words on your process.
And once again thank you Jamie.

Please see my other posting on this...
Anyway my full moon dreamboard for Jamie Ridler's Dreamboard circle is about calm, balance inspiration (MJ) and being happy in the process. So I focus on calm, hence the Budda and the goddess in this collage.
I am not a Buddhist, but I enjoy the concept of contemplation and meditation, which brings me back to my center.
I also wish for continuation of abundance, and healthy living.
The pink blank space is empty as I feel a need to let go of constantly planing my every move even though I am securing work for the autumn/fall ...I feel that I need to let go of the outcome. So my focus is maintaining balance with inspiration....
As so it is....

Welcome to the New Home of my 'Next Chapter' blog home
I have decided to place this phase of the book group for 'Wreck this Journal' on this blog as its time to scale down, it also felt right...
When Book group creatrix Jamie Ridler notified us that we were going to be working with this book I was excited. However when the book came I just stared at it perplexed, telling myself 'this was not going to be fun anymore' lol. So I put the book down for a few days, anyway after poking holes and scribbling in my book I realised that
a) I didn't have to cook a meal so that I could spill rub it in my food (that will come)
b) I didn't have to climb the tree that houses the Magpie family just so I could drop the book from a great height.
c) I didn't have to worry about 'the right way' to wreck the journal just enjoy the process....
At first I worried about how much wrecking to do etc etc but then I checked out Jamie's post and she said that we its best to pace ourselves as this group gos on till July very true ..... even destruction has its own time.
Also after reading blogs about firecrackers and friends stealing the journal I feel that its time to enjoy my self with the journal and not take it so seriously.
Normally I am very controlled with my entries, but the influence 'outside the box' nature of this book saw me post week 1 and week 2 together, yes I am just enjoying the process of wrecking my journal...
p.s the book has disappeared and gone for a walk ????

A powerful fire moon today in Sagittarius. I feel like our dream board group is like a women's hut that we gather and share sacred creations.
~thats why my theme this month is heavily focused on the womb. creativity, and abundance~
I decided to create my dream board whilst listening to Alexandra Pope's Wild Genie's telecast http://www.wildgenie.com this site is about about menstrual healing.
After this show I scanned and fixed up my image whilst listening to Dr Tonya Freeman www.wombshaman.com give a radio interview about womb wellness on black womens health radio show http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blackwombniverse, although this is a show for black women Dr Freeman's information is universal.
Dr Tonya's own radio show Wisdom Talks features great women such as Queen Afua, Susan Weed, and Vicky Noble, the interview are a great source of inspiration and a good resource for women.
Dr Tonya's and Alexandra's words reiterated how its important to honour ourself as women and help us overcome issues around our wombs.
As I work through my own healing process I endeavour to honour myself, so that I can give energy to my hopes wishes and dreams during this Fiery Full Moon.

I have been busy finishing up my Creative Healing workbook hence the absence anyway this book is the companion to 9 Steps to Creative Healing my first little book. Yesterday Lulu sent me an email notifying me that the little book has been selected for Amazon's Market Place so I am very happy.
Wishing Wall... www.trueyou.me
I have not been there for about two years so it was a nice to attend, although I missed the workshops. The Mind Body Spirit Festival is the heavyweight festival of personal development seminars.
for more info check out www.mindbodyspirit.co.uk
The main joy was the wishing wall which people were able to put their wishes up for free! this reminded me of Wishcasting Wednesday where today Jamie asks ,
"What frivolous treat do you wish for?"
I wish for a facial and a spa visit which is not actually frivolous but I am grateful for what I have at the moment I just need to take my love and care of myself , as I have worked hard.

Imani -meaning "faith."
My dedication to the Flower / Hare Moon.....from Jamie Ridler's monthly dreamboard launch to the moon...
My dreamboard represents the creation of building ;
The seeds of Community
Family and Tribe
and Creativity .......
May the seeds flourish into beautiful flowers /tribes/community/friends that will contribute to a better environment and way of living.
May the flowers flow in the wind and return to produce more joy and dreams next spring so that we can build more....
And so it is....
I decided to use an old mini painting of my faith 'air' elemental that I created a few years ago as it spoke to me regarding the meaning of the Hare and flower moon. New beginnings and blossoming.
Its also a Scorpio waning moon so its time to speak your truth and let go of what is not working .. a talking ritual is good at this time.

I kept looking at the moon and thinking I will still do the Dreamboard. Strange occurances and I also got a 00:00 reading on my computer before I found the page...
and I actually called the Dream Board a Moon Board today very strange must be my recent reading.
Anyway my Dreamboard is a psychedelic board influenced by my recent reading Terence Mckenna's Food of the Gods, which is a book on Shamanic Plants, drugs and human evolution.
Now I am not gonna start taking Mushrooms but the book is a really good read into states of consciousness that Shamans and indigenous cultures undertook to further their development .
I also wish for more Love and Music in my life
there is no other desire than this as Both are great healers ....
And so it is..

What is it?
is it a part of the Fabege collection?
No the Jade Egg is an egg that is made out of Jade (Jadeite Crystal) that is used to strengthen the pelvic floor, and vaginal wall canal. According to Saida Désilets, Ph.D. The Jade Egg rejuvenates the sexual glands and assists in the removal of cellular memory and negative emotions that are related to sexuality.
Désilets is the Founder of The Désilets Method and author of The Emergence of the Sensual Woman. Desilets is also an expert in the field of sexual energy cultivation, she was trained by Taoist Master Mantak Chia who made these practices more available through his book the Multi - Orgasmic Woman and the Multi- Orgasmic man.
The Jade Egg is a beneficial tool for womb health, which helps with easing Menstrual Cramps and toning the internal muscles.
It is best used with the accompanying CD Jade Goddess, which has guided exercises by Saida.
Benefits personally experienced are:
More Energy and Chi is moved around the body.
More Awareness of body and increase in self esteem
Huge reduction in Menstrual Cramps
Clearing of Chakras due to the CD's 'Inner Smile Work'
Click here for more information on ordering the Jade Egg, CD and Saida's book.

Happy International Womens Day/Month (although this should be done every day).
Regardless of your current financial situation its time to celebrate and pamper yourself , so grab a few friends and have a girls night or a sacred circle using the following themes,
A Sister Circle
A Pamper party
A trip to the Sauna
A fun trip to the roller skating rink
Sharing a meal for sister friends (each person can bring a dish).
Setting goals and getting each member of the circle to witness them. Its a good time for prosperity as its the new financial year in April.
Tools : Candles, Journals, lovely clothes (doesn't have to be expensive now!) affirmations, kindness to self, music, good food .
Whatever you do enjoy this Month that celebrates the goddess in you.

Post an entry on your own blog before Valentines Day 2009. Share your love of art or love of life or host a heART themed party or tell us about the heART of yourself. Tell us what is at the heART of you! Words, art, video, anything you wish. Write a poem, share a short story, all formats welcome.
Art comes in different shapes, sizes, and colours
Moods and Mediums,
my Ezine, The Art of ....being yourself
click on image for etsy..
Creativity and Expression is how I breathe, and I believe that Art does not have to be traditional.
My Art teacher used to send many a student home in tears because their 'HeART' didn't fit the type of 'Fine ARt that he wanted.
I couldn't paint a landscape for years, but I did not want one frustrated artist to stop my expression.
La Papillion - for my brother
Love and HeART.
I also didn't realise 'Soul Love' could be creative and nurturing I hope to visit it soon again.
Love and Creativity are one and the same.....
