Bringing Light to Darkness
During these times of uncertainty and change, riding a higher frequency of vibrational energy is key for a graceful transformation.
To be able to tap into that higher, more subtle frequency connects you to your creative side, which is linked to your feminine, receptive energy. Choosing to keep a more positive, elevated view can be challenging at times. The grace for forward movement comes when we replenish our energy through our spiritual tools and practices, fueling our heart connection, as we move into a flow of acceptance, peace and openness. From this place of fullness, gratitude for the good that surrounds you blossoms and you begin to attract more of that into you life.
I always suggest that you call in the divine feminine energy, whether you are male or female, when sitting for meditation or any spiritual practice. This powerful energy will assist you in connecting to your joy, compassion, healing, and a more grounded sense that you have nature’s support for your dreams and aspirations.
It is all too easy to dip into the negative, find fault in others, your world and yourself. Choosing to be in a positive flow will allow you to discover new truths, and uncover old truths, that no longer serve you through this transformational time. Calling in divine energy supports you to flow with more grace and ease, connects you more deeply to your divine essence, and the birthing of what you are becoming. This energy is key in experiencing a more seamless and stress-free evolutionary process.
It’s time to stop clinging to old ways and bad habits of the past and allow yourself to be guided into a new time filled with more lightness, less struggle, based on a new emerging paradigm that is rooted in possibility and your potential. During the Mercury Retrograde, you may have encountered shadow experiences that illuminated where the light needed to flow brighter. Let that be your final look. Bless it and let it go.
Here are three journal topics that can assist you in connecting to your divine feminine energy and call in support from the unseen forces that guide your life.
Journaling topics for connecting to your Divine Feminine Energy:
1) When I think back, what reminds me of joyful times? What similar things can I bring into the present moment from the past that will benefit my higher good? (example: walking in nature, planting in the garden, traveling, inspirational reading, creative pursuits, nurturing relationships with friends or family…)
2) When do I feel most in my flow and connected to the Divine?
3) How can I bring more of that into my daily life?
3) What was highlighted during the Mercury Retrograde that I need to let go of to embrace that which is emerging?
Mantras for the week:
The Moon Mantra
Mantra: Om Chandrayea Namaha
Phonetics: Om Chan-dra-yay Na-ma-ha
This moon mantra is used to shine the light of clarity balance and equanimity through its vibratory frequency. When recited, it sharpens your intellect and calms the nervous system as it provides clarity and illumination.
It’s recommended to chant this mantra 108 times to receive the clarity that you’re in search of. If you have our sandalwood Mala Bead Necklace, you can use them to keep track of how many times you have repeated the mantra. This process of allowing the mind to relax as you dive deeply within the repetitive vibrational frequency of the mantra is called japa.
Try this mantra during the Full Moon on June 24th, or any full moon, and let us know how it works for you in the comments below!
Chant this Peace Mantra below as you continue to explore your divine feminine power as it support the frequency of kindness to illuminate your path forward.
The Peace Mantra –
Mantra: Loka Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
Phonetic Spelling: Lo-kāh sa-mast-āh su-khi-no bha-van-tu
“May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
Shanti Mantra (also peace)
We share this one from our spiritual teacher, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living Foundation (artofliving.org). He is a great inspiration to Michael and me. He is known to chant this mantra after guided meditations. Michael will chant this mantra during our next Mantra Mondays.
Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya | Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya | Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya | Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih || Meaning: 1: Om, (O Lord) Keep me not in (the Phenomenal World of) Unreality, but allow me go towards the Reality (of Eternal Self), 2: Keep me not in (the Ignorant State of) Darkness, but allow me go towards the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge), 3: Keep me not in (the World of) Mortality, but allow me go towards the World of Immortality (of Self-Realization), 4: Om, Peace, Peace, Peace.
I wanted to include a link to a really beautiful chant that I listen to every morning called Devi Kavacham (armor of Goddess) by Banu (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s sister). It’s about a 15-minute long chant that you can listen to at the end of meditation, or when you are getting ready for your day.
This chant goes through the entire body to create healing and protection. Her singing is wonderful and the melody is divine! Check out the video (here) for information on all the deities and the body parts that they protect.
This momentous time as seen through the lens of Jyotish Astrology
The Full Moon is Thursday, June 24, at 11:39 am PT. In Vedic astrology, the full moon is in Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter represents knowledge, truth, justice, and opportunities. Not only is Jupiter being recognized because of the full moon, it also went into retrograde on June 20 and will be in retrograde until October 18. You may see this energy play out politically and economically worldwide in different ways – perhaps a reassessment of your values and what you believe, know and perceive regarding political views and cultural norms. It could also be a review, renewal and/or acknowledgement of opportunities you have let pass by and now desire to embrace.
Mars in Cancer is about avoiding emotionally volatile situations and people. This is critical for your well-being as discernment is key. Knowing when the energy feels a bit off and respecting people and their different takes on life, yet honoring your own is a refined dance! Also, Rahu continues to afflict retrograde Saturn in Capricorn which again is about reassessing your goals and commitments.
Mercury is going direct, but be cautious until July 7. Things are beginning to loosen up as we come through the shadow influence that keeps everything a bit unpredictable until it’s fully out of retrograde energy. Once we’re through this time we can take a collective deep breath, let go and relax!
