New Moon in Virgo: Time to Fly!

The New Moon is my favorite time every month, representing the beginning of a new cycle and phase of our lives.

We say goodbye to the last chapter, welcoming the new energy before us.

Now is the time to spread your wings and fly.

Have you been thinking about starting that new project, taking a leap of faith, or working on something creative?  With this New Moon energy, you’ll be beautifully supported in your latest endeavor.

Listen to your intuition- what is it telling you?

From one of my favorite sites, Forever Conscious:

August has held the potential to be a turning point month so if you are feeling like your life could use some fresh inspiration or motivation, if you have been feeling a little stuck or stagnant or resistant to change, set an intention or take a small action under this New Moon in order to seal this energy into your life.

The cosmos offer the energy, but we have to be the ones to take it and integrate it into our being. This energy only exists as a potential unless we step forward and make the most of it.

Seeing as this New Moon falls in the sign of Virgo, we are also going to receive the comfort and support from Virgo’s totem, the Virgin Goddess. Although she is a Goddess, her energy applies to all genders.

You can read more about the meaning behind the Virgin Goddess in my Virgo Season article, but essentially, this is a time of independence and for standing in our truth. It is also a time for getting organized and getting our priorities in order, including our health.

What are we giving our time and energy to that is not supporting the vision or life we wish to create?

Creativity is a huge part of my life, but in the past I’ve held back from fully expressing myself, putting my work out there, or believing in my own art.

As I spread my own wings and take a chance, my spirit is lifted and my creations seem to come naturally.

I’m excited to see what this next chapter brings- and I know I’m supported in my journey.

Sunflower Symbolism

I dated someone for a few days who called me “sunflower.” 🌻 We met on the street in Central Square and after a brief few days, I decided I DO prefer being alone (at least for now).

Nevertheless, it was a reminder from the universe to keep shining my light!

Now, I see sunflowers EVERYWHERE. My mission and purpose isn’t to partner up, live a conventional life, or to do selfish things any longer- it’s too help others and spread awareness.

The world needs it.

How Living With a High Vibration Changes Your Life and Daily Interactions

Meet Boz! Pandas symbolize peace, harmony and friendship- this little bear is a wonderful reminder to stop and remember to be kind to yourself as well as those around you- even if low vibes try and stand in your way.

It’s so interesting to see how living with a high vibration can change your everyday encounters with the people around you.

Case in point, at my last job (a stern law office with many unhappy people), my happy-go-lucky personality and friendly demeanor was, well, uncomfortable for others.  It took me a month or two to realize this, but then after watching an episode of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” I realized I probably had to tone it down a notch (does anyone know what episode I’m talking about?  So good).

Nevertheless, I tried.  I tried to “keep my head down,” stay quiet, and focus on work I had no interest in. It was nearly impossible though, because as a creative type and lightworker, I wanted to engage, connect, and make the office more pleasant.  Alas, I was required to take orders from young attorneys who didn’t understand social media and type up documents I wasn’t trained on.

After three and a half months of this, I knew this legal job would be the last; as I stepped into the person I have learned I am, I needed to find a more suitable environment.

Perhaps this job would have worked well for me when I arrived in Boston in December 2016. I was broken yet optimistic, eager to learn yet still finding her footing. The structure of a more corporate environment could have shaped me into a completely different person than I am today- but fortunately, I was surrounded by healing, artistic, loving people who taught me the joys of meditation, kindness, and self-love.

That brings me to today- over a year and a half after I first arrived in Boston to start a new life.  I have come a long way since that chilly December morning when I landed at Logan Airport, and my self-discovery journey will continue every day for the rest of my life.

In my first Mindful in Style YouTube video, I chatted about how carrying a high vibration can affect you (and others) in even a fun, energetic environment where you feel of service and (think you) fit in.  Something small, yet still stung, happened today- but I was able to quickly put it into perspective.

Perhaps I could have taken their comments the wrong way, or perhaps others actually were being cruel- but as I left my new job today, I heard people making fun of me when they thought I had left.

Had I not used a goofy word, “weekend-ish,” been so upbeat, or flat out said “this job is fun,” perhaps they wouldn’t have teased me.  Maybe it didn’t matter what I did.  Maybe they’re going through their own issues. Despite the reasons, it does not matter.

I don’t have to let the outside world determine my internal condition.

As I looked at Boz the bear when I came home today, I smiled and sat on my bed.  I remembered how far I have come, and how petty frustration or sensitivity is so unimportant in my life today.  I can finally say goodbye to the defensive, snappy person with a guard up and a chip on her shoulder and live with grace, not aggression.

Hopefully those people enjoy their weekend as much as I do, and maybe, just maybe, they’ll use the word “weekend-ish” one day, too.
