Moon Phase Last Quarter Letting Go & How To Release


LQ. It is the Last Quarter moon today. See the moon high in the southern sky in the morning.

Be sure to scroll down! I am sure you will find something wonderful!
It is time for soul searching and reaching a turning point with recent insights. Feelings are signals. Now that the issue is identified, it is time to let go, to release, be honest with the issue to face.
When we are told to “release” something, what does that mean?
How do we release something? I rarely find that a fleeting thought for a few seconds will do the trick.
In the Prepare for a Successful New Moon post I mentioned this time in the moon cycle brings up insights about a current Thing manifesting as a mental struggle and tension.
Now that the Thing has a Name, am I the only one who is asking “What do I do with that”? It is human nature to look for a solution.
The first step is to have an attitude and willingness to believe that there is a solution. Reminds me of the phrase, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” This means having a frame of mind to receive an answer or solution.
When that is achieved, be on the look out for clues that may come from any type of source. The positive attitude and willingness will allow you to do that and recognize that it is an answer.
Be creative to find methods of releasing. Here are a few ideas:
This ancient Hawaiian spiritual system has a delightfully simple method to perform a forgiveness ritual as a method to heal yourself.
These web sites are excellent sources for flower essences:
Desert Alchemy
Bach Flower Essences
Rescue Remedy
I like to use everyday herbs for helpers as well. Take 3-5 drops of an herbal extract on the tongue for a spirit dose. Here are a few:
Black Cohosh for accepting change and understanding emotional patterns. Opens the heart.
Echinacea for feelings about past traumas. Opens to joy. For denial issues and release old patterns.
Lemon Balm for anxiety and elevate the mood. Centering and calming. Lets out suppressed pain and rage.
Any kind of body work helps to release old patterns. Massage, yoga, walking, acupuncture, chiropractic, swimming, sports. Moving the body allows energy and emotions to move, too.
The important word for any spiritual system is “practice.”
Prayer, meditation, shamanic journeying, goddess rituals, clairvoyant reading, wicca, reiki, Buddhism – there are so many possible now. Do you have a practice?
