As you may or may not know there was a full moon on Wednesday night. Taking initiative from some of my heroes, Gala Darling and Veronica Varlow, I decided to change up some of my habits for the day of and day after the full moon. I figure it can't hurt to add some magic in my life if it's all for the self love journey!
Since the sun is finally shining again in central New York, I've been taking walking my lunches as walks outside on the gorgeous campus we have. Check these out!
Other than trying to pick up some natural vitamin D, being in nature (and sun shine!) really changes my mood. Lucky for me we have such a nice campus to walk around.
Next on the mix-up was adding in some self-care! That evening I made myself a hot cup of chai, while prepping an epsom salt bath. This was inspired by the Danger Dame herself. While I enjoy some "moon bathing" I thought taking an actual bath would help cleanse away any fear or doubts I have on my current journey. After pouring my tea and pouring a bath, into the bath went some lavender essential oil and a ton of epsom salt. As I stepped into the bath I said out loud, "As the water cleanses my body, so it cleanses away my fears and doubts."
I relaxed, I journal-ed my gratitude thoughts of the day and drank my tea. At the end of my full moon bath, I spoke out loud again as the water went down the drain. "As the water drains away, so do my fears and doubts."
Here's to welcoming in some more magic in my life!
The last bit of magic I introduced was attending my friend's vision board event! My friend Kim happens to be an aspiring life coach who was able to share some tips on creating a vision board for your dreams. Here's mine:
I've done vision boards in the past, but never with the intentions set to the power of the full and waning moon. It is believed that on the full moon you can release any thing that no longer serves you; thus it would make sense to set out new plans after the moon has begun to wane (or started it's journey towards a new moon).
Per Kim's suggestions, I have placed my vision board in my bathroom so I see it every morning and night when I brush my teeth or get ready for the day ahead. I also took a picture on my cell phone so I can look at when ever I have a free second, to return my thoughts and intentions to my current vision! Thanks for the good tips, Kim!
Anyone else vision board? Willing to share? <3
