WANING CRESCENT \\ RECONNECT WITH YOURSELF
Keywords: circumstances and people changing, turning inward, deep thinking, meditation, rest
Finally the last phase of the journey of the moon. This phase is all about rest and renewal. This energy is about rest of the mind, body and soul. Here you want to sleep a little more if you can, take a longer shower or bath, meditate, go for a long run or anything else you like to do to clear your mind. It’s important to clear your energy at this time so you can be prepared for the increase in energy during the soon to come phase of the new moon.
Take time to be with yourself when possible so that you can get clear on the things you want out of life. Turning inward is important for listening to your higher self. There are clues there as to what will make you the most happy and fulfilled. This period is the last bit of time you have for releasing what no longer serves you before starting a new moon cycle. This is so important because holding onto things that no longer serves keeps us from achieving our goals. We often make the mistake of thinking a goal isn’t right for us or that the universe doesn’t want us to have it. This isn’t true… anything is possible, it's generally as simple as the universe waiting for us to make space.
We do this by being honest with ourselves and releasing those things that keep us stuck in the same place. Go back to the thing you decided to release for this waning period of the moon. Did you release it? If not, why not and what are you going to do to release it now that you have one last chance to move this energy out? What might you be preventing in your life if you don’t let this go?
This is also a good time to begin to examine your dreams and goals, especially those that were set aside during the last new moon. Get in touch with the bigger picture and begin to think about ways to get there. Now is the time to look at what is important to you and not just wanting something for the sake of wanting. Where would you like your life to be in the next year. This vision is going to help when you start this process all over again. It seems like a lot to focus on every moon cycle but it makes a big difference in the attainment of your longterm goals. Consistently holding the vision of what you wish to accomplish is how you raise your vibration to meet success.
