Releasing Secrets of Magical Women

Happy 2021! Today I'm sharing three secrets for curating a better experience in one small area of your life. I was having a conversation with my husband this morning about a Facebook post we both saw from a family member who has decided to step away from the platform because he's feeling the negative outweighs the positive for him. My husband has sometimes had a similar experience with it. And I noticed that every time this conversation comes up, my reaction is that I just don't experience that. Perhaps the Facebook algorithm is just being kind to me and I'm only seeing stuff I like! But I think it's more likely that I've curated that experience intentionally. On the rare occasion that I see something that I don't want to see in my feed, I will just unfollow or hide the person sharing it. Once in a while, I'll unfriend them. They don't know and that's the end of it. Or, if they do know, I don't know they do so I am ok with that. I admit I am a little bit ruthless about these things. It's similar to receiving a gift you don't like - I usually graciously thank the giver and later pass it along to someone who will appreciate it. The energy of the offering is still alive and well. (And, of course, I don't have to tell anyone.)

This got me thinking about what we tolerate in our lives. What are you tolerating? What is dragging your energy when you see it or think about it? Why aren't you releasing things you don't want in your world? Obviously, some things have greater consequences when we release them than others. But, almost all of us have some things or habits in our life that we'd like to let go of that are perfectly within our ability to release without big, negative repercussions. And there are usually great positive changes waiting for us on the other side of that action. One way to support doing this in your life with more ease is to follow the energy of the moon. If you are finding yourself holding onto something you'd rather let go of in your life, try tuning into the moon to support your energy in releasing. Here are 3 ways to do that: 1. Align with the phase of the moon. The waning moon is a great time for discerning how we really feel about something and letting it go. I love the Full Moon Phase app for following the moon phases. 2. If you want to go a bit deeper, after you check the moon phase, check which astrological sign the moon is in (this changes every 2 1/2 days) and see if you can plan your release for a day that aligns better with the energy of the sign. Debra Silverman has great videos on Instagram to help you learn more about the moon in each sign. 3. Finally, if you want to take an even deeper dive into this practice, commit to making your relationship with the moon a regular practice in your life. A simple way to do this is to journal daily and note the phase of the moon and begin to notice your own energy patterns. And, of course, if you'd like support in doing this and want to elevate your experience by circling with other women on this path, you are invited to join me and Anjali at our next FREE New Moon Sister Circle. You can register here to join us on Thursday, January 14th from 7-8 PM EST. Lastly, if you try curating something in your life with the moon, come visit us in the New Moon Sister Circle Facebook group (if you didn't quit FB) and tell us about it! (Be sure to answer all of the membership questions when you request to join so we can approve you right away!) I hope to see you on the New Moon! Juli
