No, you will not land amongst the stars! Well, okay maybe you will. Today I am writing about two things I love – the moon and the ocean.
Many moons ago (haha) I wrote about my love of the full one and its power to transform even the most sensible beetroot juice drinker into a raving lunatic. But the new moon – what of her? She is gracing our skies as we speak. But a slip of a thing, she doesn’t have the razzle dazzle of her more pregnant self. Arriving unannounced, the new moon is gone before we’ve noticed her presence. Personally I didn’t even glance up at this silvery sliver until I found out about the potential for change she brings about. I sure love me some changing! It’s because of something called the ‘self-development’ gene I believe.
And when it comes to changing, I’ll take all the help I can get. How about you? There are some fantastic articles here and here giving you a step-by-step for your new moon manifestation. I also have written much about manifesting here and here and more recently about goal setting here. Since today is a new moon eclipse, which is apparently more powerful than EVER, you’d better get down to it if you want to catch the super-charged power over the next 24 hours (or so).
For a slice of super-power a bit more of this world, get thee to the water. In Perth, we are lucky to have some of the most beautiful beaches around and while I am here I am making sure to get my dips in. Swimming in the ocean makes me feel fan-freaking-tastic! It is cold but fires my skin with freshness.
Water is an amazing healer too. You know this when you come home from work or school completely drained, feeling like you need to sleep for twelve years. Then you take a shower and zing! Instantly you are back in the land of the living! It is because our bodies become charged with positive ions from car and factory exhaust, computers, mobile phones, appliances, dust and mould and all the modern cons. We breathe in the positive ions and they generally make us feel lethargic and even sick. Apparently 75% of the population go into depression and 25% become hyperactive.
To balance this effect, we only have to spend some time with Mother Nature. Negative ions (the good ones) are found a plenty on places like mountains, by waterfalls, and at beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. There are even negative-ion generators that can be bought but that doesn’t sound like so much fun to me. There’s nothing like a walk along the beach and a healing swim in the ocean that makes me feel so alive.
Of course you don’t need to live near Mother Ocean to become a born-again. You could also take a sea-salt bath or go to a lake or river to harness water’s cleansing and rejuvenating powers. And waters magical properties are amplified when you infuse it with your prayers and intentions. So enjoy! I’ll see you on the other side!
