In my meditation, I saw seabirds flying away high in the sky, and I heard the word, 'Release'. I understand this message to mean it's important to let go of what no longer serves my highest good.
A great way to release unwanted situations or emotions is during the full moon. Our feelings are heightened when the moon is at its greatest form. The Moon is associated with the Sacral Chakra, the seat of our emotions. When emotions are not fully expressed, the second chakra can come out of balance.
Water is the element associated with the Sacral Chakra. Just as the moon influences the waters of the earth, it also has an effect on our body, of which 60% is made up of water. During the days leading up to the full moon and just afterwards, the tides are especially high or low. Similarly, many people also feel strong emotional swings during the full moon period.
So, as the full moon wanes, its energy supports us in releasing what is keeping us from moving forward on our spiritual path. We can take some time to go within and view our life from the perspective of our higher self, which is always an objective view. What behavior, habit, belief, or attitude is holding us back from evolving into the best version of ourselves?
A great releasing practice can be done on the evening of the full moon. Write down what you want to let go of on a piece of paper. You can have a bonfire outside or a candle in a bowl inside. Focus your thoughts intently on what you are releasing, and burn the paper. Envision your burden as flying away from you, being taken by the universe.
We do a full moon release drumming ceremony every month here, at the Maika'i Studio, in Leilani, on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Join us if you are in the area!
