Moon Energy - Awakening to Spiritual Living

The Moon is a magnificent beacon in the sky that holds many mysteries and stories in cultures all around the world. Most certainly in your lifetime you have looked up in wonder and marvelled at this extraordinary light in the sky. I have come to really connect with the symbolism of Nature and the Moon plays an important role in my spiritual practice which I want to share with you.

 It is widely known that the word Lunatic comes from the word Luna (Moon). If you have ever worked in an office or retail job it's often a joke that “it must be the Full Moon, the crazies are out”. The Moon effect may be talked about on this surface level but it is fair to say that there is a sense that the Moon has long been associated with heightened states of activity which affects people in different ways. In looking through the scientific research I found there is much contention surrounding the Moons effects on Humans and most of it dismisses any connection. The common theory, and one I was personally told along my journey, is that as the moon affect the tides, especially on nights like the Full Moon and New Moon. We as humans are made up of mostly water therefore we too are affected by the moon in powerful ways. This gave me validity to what I felt and experienced and it made so much sense to me. I am looking forward to providing you with the details on how this worked to deepen your understanding. When looking into the traditional research aspect, there is a lot of evidence that counters the belief of any connection to the point of considering it an absurd notion. At first I was slightly taken aback… oh how they naysayers are going to love this. Do I pretend I didn't see it? This however brought up a relevant point that I wasn't expecting but I strongly believe I was called to address for you as you embark on the path of spiritual living. I saw a recent quote by one of the most incredible scientific minds ever, Albert Einstein who said “ The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Intuition simply means getting in touch with our senses and instincts. In the world we live in where the focus is often very mentally driven, we have desensitised our ability to feel and have true connection. As part of your own evolution and self-discovery you are going to be challenged by this battle between the Mind and Heart, the Thinking and Feeling. When we purely focus on matters of the mind it can distracts us from the knowing we so long for that we already have residing in our heart.

So I then ask myself ‘Do I need a piece of research to validate a knowing I already have?’ I know this for sure that there are things in life that we feel and experience that cannot be explained by science yet which have been proven time and time again. The message is that you must trust your own knowing, even when others would have you think otherwise. If you start disbelieving in your natural instincts and you go against them then you are truly lost. I do also believe it is vital to our experience to be challenged in our beliefs as we all carry beliefs and thought patterns that are limiting to our spirit. New information can provide that missing piece of the puzzle that liberates us into a new way of being and in this moments we feel it so strongly inside. Other times these experiences of being dismissed, rejected and told it's not real or impossible can diminish our spirit and cause us to hide aspects of ourselves in order to be accepted with the ‘norm’. So will you choose the intuitive mind or the rational one? That is up to you of course and it may be a good exercise to see which mind you are using more and how it's making you feel. I see it as an opportunity to deepen your own inner understanding. When we are in touch with a sense of and the world around us we can open up to infinite knowledge, wisdom and connection.

The Moon works with our energy and seeks to bring us balance. This practice is actually part of my self-care ritual as it is all about taking time out to check in with you. I do Moon Ceremonies to tune in and keep my energy clear and positive and recalibrate to be at my energetic best. When you take time to drop into feeling and experiencing our senses mindfully it can provide you with clarity, direction and peace of mind. This is what we want more of. By doing this we balance out the mental energy that can be overwhelming and create anxiety, stress and mind fog. It is natural for us to experience both dark and lighter times and feel the push and pull of life as we go through experiences that shape who we are. We often question this process. Why must I go through this? Can't it just be easy? The Moon does not question the phases of life. It simply flows with it. The Moon knows that the Light follows the Dark and it trusts in it. When you learn to embrace the processes of your life you will see that everything in life is an opportunity to help us break free into a new realm of being that better serves us. When you have this awareness and you actively participate in the seasons on your life then you are living with purpose. The Moon is our guide through the natural phases of life that we experience.  Let me Explain…Like us it goes through Phases, Light and Dark and Pushing forward and Pulling in. The two moon phases I work with are the Full Moon and the New Moon.  Both Moons each have their own specific purpose in helping us and I will be explaining how you can tune in and harness this energy in your own Moon Ceremony. 


The Full Moon is when the Moon is at its fullest and brightest.  

Cleanse and Clear ~Surrender and Let go of what is not serving you~  Reenergise

Masculine/ External /Taking action to release and let go/ High Energy/ Intensity/ Action

When the Moon is at its fullest, its energy is pulling things to the surface. The Recharge value of the moon is the strongest so this is the night we put our crystals out to be cleanses and recharged. In the time of the Full Moon you may be frustrated and emotional. This is our resistance in this time that blocks our opportunity to work through what arises. If you can allow yourself to observe what is happening, rather than play into the drama, and then show a willingness to surrender from it, then you are able to shift it and actually be energising positively. This is what the Full Moon is calls us to do. It seeks to show us what is not in harmony and is not serving our spirit so we can free ourselves of it and let it go. This is why around the Full Moon time you may feel unsettled and of kilter. Remember that what comes up cannot exist if it wasn't already inside you. This is about taking responsibility for our actions and being willing to be shown a different way that will help us create inner peace.

New Moon is when the Moon is at its fullest and in darkness.

 Connecting in ~ Creating your desires ~ Manifesting with the universe

Feminine /Internal/ Encouraging us to go deep within to discover our light / Aligning with your heart/ Discovering new found purpose

 When we are in the phase of the New Moon(Dark Moon) it is asking us to go within. This is a time when you want to get still, quiet and listen. Being still is an important thing to do in our natural cycle. For many of us being still is a hard as it may bring up feelings of guilt as you may think it is unproductive or that it may mean facing what you are running from. The truth is that this is where the magic of who you are can be discovered. It is where answers to your prayers exist. When you allow yourself the time to truly connect you can have a wonderful conversation with your higher self that will bring you in alignment with your gifts and your unique purpose that you. The New Moon is all about empowerment and giving you the opportunity to rediscover your passions and give you a growth burst of manifesting energy to help you start creating the life you were born to live. You must know that you were created on purpose, as you are, to live your purpose. The universe wants to work with your faith in yourself and show you the true power that exist inside you. It is about planting the seeds of your intentions and cultivating your ideas and clearing the way for your visions to surface in reality

11:11 - Awakening to Spiritual Living

Art work by Joshua Drake

Art work by Joshua Drake

Do you see 11:11 regularly when you look at your phone or do you notice repeating number or triple numbers on car number plates.  Is it a strange coincidence? or is the Universe is trying to get your attention with an important message. I was first introduced to the concept of numbers when I attended my first ever Spiritual Development class in 2013. One of the students and now my good friend explained how she receives messages from her angels and guides in seeing triple numbers. I was fascinated by this concept and found it interesting that I had a friend around me at the same time who was quite obsessed with seeing the number 11:11 on her phone. To be honest I thought she was being a bit silly and I had dismissed this as her body clock aligning with that time because she was so focused on it. I would soon learn there was much more to discover. When I opened up to this amazing connection I would experience the true magic of receiving messages through numbers.

 My friend explained that when she sees triple number on number plates of cars that’s when she knows she is receiving a message. The triple numbers easily stand out and because the number is repeated its vibration is amplified so you know the message is strong. After hearing this I thought 'I want to start seeing numbers!', so I started to open my eyes and be conscious of my surroundings so I was ready to see the signs when they came.  I was so eager, verging on desperate as anywhere I drove I looked around to see if I would spot any triple numbers... but I got nothing. For 2 weeks I looked, getting frustrated and thinking triple numbers must be rare or something.

This one day I had been looking hard and again to no avail. I was at the local shopping centre and as I walked to my car in my fed up state I said to myself “Just stop looking so hard!'. In that moment I looked up and in front of me was a set of triple numbers on either side of me  222 and a 333. I was so ecstatic almost verging on tears as I took a picture and promptly googled angel number messages for 222 and 333. The messages were so relevant to my life at that time and the transformation I was going through. On that day I began my love of numbers and understanding their messages and meaning. And so begun my beautiful and powerful relationship with numbers that continues to grow and develop today. 

 

The Bigger Picture

 If you imagine a light switch which has an Off and an On switch, we have 0 as representing OFF and 1 as being ON. So when you start to see 111 or 11:11 it’s a turning on or an activation of your light in a way. That is why 11:11 is also known as the Awakening Code. You will often find that you start seeing the 11:11 or 111 at a time in your life when you are experiencing big changes and upheavals. It is in this time that you are realising or already making changes in your life to let go of anything that has been feeling inauthentic to your spirit. It can feel like you either follow your truth or you die and there is a death of sort occurring, as you shed the deadened layers of the old you and start aligning and following a more powerful connection to your true self. Visually 11 can also represents the spiralling twin strands of human DNA moving into higher frequency of consciousness which is part of our purpose on earth, evolution. When seeing the 111/11:11 it’s a sign that you are being called to step up at a powerful level to enact change.

The study of Epigenetics gives us new insight in that behavioural epigenetics which tells us those traumatic experiences in our past, or in our recent ancestors’ past, leave molecular scars adhering to our DNAIt has been told that we each hold 7 generations of information inside us, so by activating this memory is can help us to connect to our Karmic lessons and what we may have to shift in this lifetime in order to advance ourselves forward and on a larger scale become more conscious. This awakening serves to revealing our individual and unique path of enlightenment, which simple means to make ourselves lighter by shedding our fear and limiting behaviours and begin to live from a place of love and compassion that gives us true fulfilment and purpose to life.

 The more of us who follow this path the bigger impact this has on the collective in creating a positive force in the world that encourage us all to rise up and lift our vibration so we can change the world. Change the World! wow that escalate quickly hahaha but it’s true. This is what is required on a global level as we live in a time where we are allowing things to occur and making decisions based on fear rather than love. We can see this in acts of terrorism, corporate corruption and wars based on financial and material gain from government who are exploiting the earth’s resources. These are outward manifestation of what is happening on the inside each one of us. Have you ever had a day where you have been terrorised by your own thoughts? a constant barrage of negativity and conflicting ideas that made you feel that you are stuck, worthless and unable to get out of that dark place. Then you are a terrorist at war with yourself.

How you treat yourself, Your Body which is your personal Planet, has a great importance and impact more than you have possibly ever considered before. The more love and care you put into yourself, you begin to radiate a wonderful energy. When others see this, is sparks their own positive potentially, so they may seek to grow their light, which radiates on to the next person and so on and so on until we start changing on a larger scale. It starts with you but where is ends up is Miraculous. In this way we can influence the highest levels and we could see governments and corporations implementing positive structure that support this way of living and before you know it we live in a different world.  One that supports freedom, individuality, authenticity, connection and community, truth and love. Now that a world I want to be a part of, that's a world I can see a bright future for.

 How to connect with your Number Messages

The great Pythagoras said that everything in the Universe is mathematically precise, and that each number has its own vibration and meaning. Numbers are a universal language so it is accessible to all and connects us to ONENESS which is why your angel and guides chooses to connect with you through this language. Numbers are a shorthand code between the universe and us and will give you amazing support, guidance and confirmation of your direction and path.

The best and easiest way I can think of to help you start your connection to your Angel Messages in Number is this- You know how when you were growing up and you thoughts how will I know when I am in love and we are told ‘you just know!’ Well you follow the same inner instincts when it comes to numbers. And because we are trying to follow the path of self-love, it just makes sense that the same principles apply to knowing when you are getting a message through numbers.

The Feeling~ You will get a feeling inside which is the knowing. This can often be the hardest part because we lack the trust. Doreen Virtue says "we often discount the signs they give us, writing them off as coincidence or your own imagination". You may get the feeling when you look at the number that it just stands our more or you may even get a pre-emptive feeling like...I need to keep my eyes open right now. The more you can trust the feeling and explore it the stronger the affirmation and confirmation you continue to work with the universe through numbers/ will get as you continue to develop this sight.

Law of attraction~ It will catch your eye... there will be thousands of numbers a day but the ones you are supposed to see will seem to stand out to you. Triple numbers are great at standing out but it can also be any combination of number that call to you.

Synchronicity~ You will just seem to keep bumping into the same number, a coincidence or meant to be! You may start seeing the same number repeating itself throughout the day or you may like find you are waking up at the same strange time each night. You want to be looking up these numbers. Your experience can be varied from seeing the same number next to each, throughout the day or a day where you see triple numbers everywhere.

 

The Confirmation

It will be the most amazing feel when you connect to numbers and start realising that you have a direct connection to Divine Support that seeks to encourage you, share wisdom and knowledge, and empower you on your path. Those first numbers I saw in that parking lot came at a time when I was in a mess and was beginning to realising the path I had been on was killing me and this new and seeming "unconventional path" was awaiting me. These were the messages of my numbers that day.

222~ The message of Angel Number 222 is that everything will turn out for the best in the long-term.  Do not put your energies into negativity – be aware that all is being working out by spirit for the highest good of all involved.  Repeating Angel Number 222 is also reminding you to keep up the good work you are doing, as the evidence of your manifestations are coming to fruition. ~ Joanne Sacred Scribe

333~ With the number sequence 333 repeating, the message is to have faith in humanity.  The Ascended Masters are working with you on all levels.  They love, guide and protect you – always.  When the Angel Number 333 repeats in your life you are asked to call upon the Ascended Masters for love, help and companionship. They will give you guidance along your path, and if feeling perplexed or confused as to your life purposecall upon the angels and Ascended Masters to assist.  They are waiting for your call. ~ Joanne Sacred Scribe
