  1. Detach

In the previous series- ‘There is no Time like the Present- Part 7’, I mentioned the power of ‘Release’, such a liberating word. However it is through ‘Detachment’, or non- attachment as it is used in Buddhism, that allows us true liberation from what Buddhists call Samsara or what perpetuates Karma. It’s because of Karma we are in Samsara.

What a wake up call we are receiving now!

A time to reflect, gain clarity, see fairness and evaluate ones responsibilities for themselves, their family, their community and their environment. It is important to recognize such patterns that are destructive as these are what keep us in Samsara. Its starts in your own head and ripples outward. It spills into the family, the community and into the rest of the world. Yes we are all responsible, we are a collective.

Detaching, stepping back from situations that are not conducive to your growth, which includes relationships of all sorts, work, family and community is important to allow you to gain clarity. Ask yourself questions such as what is my role in this harmony or disharmony? What can I improve at this time by letting things go that are not working for me?

Asses your situation and accept responsibility, no guilt only empowerment. Detachment is NOT about being stone cold concerning your emotions or your circumstances. It about learning to set yourself free from the burden of your past actions and the haunting of your future actions, to understand that there is no time like the present as this is the ONLY REALITY.

Detachment from our wounds, decisions, life circumstances allows for a profound sense of care, compassion and freedom. Be free by not being attached to your mind! Allow every experience in your life to enter as a lesson and understanding.

Looking at some of the happiest and content people in the world I recognized similarities such as, some had been through a trauma, and that there was no expectations, no attachments and they are always living in the PRESENT moment. A gift, a PRESENT perhaps from the Universe? Living in the now is the only reality, what was is in the past and what will become has not happened yet.

Take the time to detach from your fears, from judging others and from even judging yourself. Bring in the love, detach from the fear that is running ramped on a global scale and understand that everything you will become and have been is because of your present moment, the here and now.

 

Affirmation:

I accept the roles that I play in creating my reality by living in the present, in the HERE AND NOW.

 

How And When To See The ‘Super Flower Moon’ Rise This Week, The Fourth And Final Supermoon Of 2020

Are you ready for just one more supermoon in 2020?

This Thursday sees the rise of the “Super Flower Moon,” the fourth and final so-called supermoon of the year.

Exactly how special is the “Super Flower Moon?” Given that there have been three overly large full moons in a row so far in 2020, you could be forgiven for thinking that the “Super Flower Moon” is not particularly special.

All full moons are special, but only if you get your timing exactly right.

The trick with any full moon—and particularly a supermoon—is to be in the right place at the right time.

So here’s everything you need to know about when and how to get a great view of the final supermoon of the year.

What is a supermoon?

A supermoon, also known as a perigee full moon by astronomers, is a colloquial—even astrological—term for a full Moon when it’s at its closest point to Earth in its orbit. Although it’s only a slight effect, it may appear bigger and brighter in the sky.

What time is the full moon?

(May) Full Moon in Scorpio

Witches Of The Craft®

The Full Moon in Scorpio resonates with the mysteries of sex, birth, death, and rebirth. On this Full Moon we shine light into hidden recesses of our psyche. It is a time to shed old skins and let go from whatever is keeping us from growing. Under Scorpio Full Moon, we have the opportunity for profound personal transformation. This is also a good time to reflect on how we can reclaim our sense of personal power. This Full Moon is an especially potent time to work with the goddess associated with the scared dark. It is also a time for working all kinds of banishing, releasing, and cord cutting rituals. Scorpio helps us surrender to the process of transformation. Scorpio has a fierce compassion that tempers us, deepen us and turns us into beings of wisdom.

Full Moon 2020: Does a Full Moon affect humans?

A FULL MOON tonight will bathe the planet in its eerie glow – but does a Full Moon affect humans?

Full Moons are believed by many affect our sleep and our mood but they are also associated with the paranormal – ghosts and werewolves. The Moon’s supposed influence has also affected our language, with the words lunacy and lunatic originating in the Latin word for Moon, luna. With the next Full Moon rising tonight (Thursday, May 7), is there any truth behind these myths?

According to the Royal Observatory Greenwich in London, there is a well-documented fascination with the Moon’s sway over our lives.

The ancient Mesopotamians, for instance, believed lunar eclipses threatened the lives of their kings.

In Ancient Greece and Rome, on the other hand, girls were given crescent-shaped pendants to ward off evil spirits.

And by the 16th century, the Moon’s position was tracked by physicians to determine how it would affect their patients.
