My heart is so full after spending an afternoon this past weekend celebrating amazing women and crafting our own personal aromatherapy blends at the first Red Tent of 2016. What a beautiful and powerful way to start the year?!!
During our circle time, there was an overarching theme of releasing that which no longer served us, rejoicing in our uniqueness, self care, and even though 2015 was a year of struggle and transformation for many, everyone had a sense of hope as to what lies ahead.
It felt SO good to look back and realize all the challenges each of us overcame. That perseverance paved the way to connect more deeply with our soul energy. It's funny, how the undoing of all we feel is solid in our lives, can lead us to so much expansion and truth. The symbolism of the Phoenix rising from the ashes resonates deeply for me.
I found it quite fitting that the theme of release was at the forefront, especially seeing as Mercury is currently in retrograde until January 25. This makes it the perfect time to review, reassess, and release. This is the perfect time to let shit go, which will create more room for the things you are longing for to take root in your life.
This is the first new moon of 2016, symbolizing fresh new beginnings for the year ahead. We are still in the dark moon phase of the lunar cycle. The moon was in the sign of Capricorn during the Red Tent. If you love to manifest with the moon, it is my hope that you were able to harness that earthy Cappy energy to implement the clarity, strength, determination, and systems that will empower you to harvest the fruits of your dreams and desires.
We were so blessed to have Marlese with Living Sky Aromatics join us to share her knowledge of the power of essential oils. Marlese is a certified aromatherapist and she discussed with us how pairing essential oils with our intentions can make for a potent tool to support us during the coming months. We were all fortunate to craft our own personal blends. Those two bottles charging on my heart chakra grid are infused with beautiful aromatics and hold the vibration of the clarity and simplicity I'm calling in this year 💚❤💚
I encourage you to take a moment and sink into the celebrations that you have from 2015. It was an EPIC year once you stop to think about it. You are worth celebrating and are divinely loved. Relish in yourself!! Once you've soaked it all in, contemplate what it is that you are wanting to plant and nurture this year.
Cheers to 2016 goddesses!!
If your intention this year is to connect more deeply with women in sisterhood, I invite you check out my four month program, the Sacred Feminine Circle. I am now accepting applications for the next session which is scheduled to begin in February.
