How to use the phases of the moon correctly is something that I have grown passionate about.
Today is 11/21/2016, and we are in the last quarter moon phase and moving into the waning crescent moon phase. And when I started working on becoming a shaman and priestess I realized how important working with the cycles of the moon was for me.
And how much more efficient my intentions and self-enhancement work were when I paid attention to the cycles of the moon. My magic work started to manifest better, and I got better results and more clarity on issues, As your spiritual life coach I encourage you to pay attention to the cycles of the moon especially for Cancer zodiac signs it truly helps and anyone that has a cancer moon as well may be drawn to work with the moon cycles. Or if you just have a love for the moon and want a more positive effective in your magic I say pay attention to the moon as she speaks.
So this is a time when we are going towards the waning crescent stage is to keep working on your positive activities and self-building. Setting your timer for 15-20 minutes per day and clean dust rearranges straighten up things that need to be cleaned internally and externally. Take it slow tackle one thing at a time. Also, this is a time to release any negativity that you are holding towards anyone, food, issues , behaviors. Do not just focus on banishing work but concentrate on letting go of it and doing so in a mind frame that is in the state of light and love . If you done any banishing work that you have done during the last phase, please continue to work on building your energy of light and love towards the issues that you are trying to get rid of.
Also, think about your self-care as well during this what needs to be dusted in your inner self. Do you need to up your exercise habits, health regime then this is a good time to concentrate on removal of those self-limiting situations that are holding you back from your optimal health, relationships, and habits. So start that exercise routine slowly at this time . Cut your hair, get a manicure, pedicure self-care is the best attention and see where you need a little dusting at this stage. Go inward and do some self-analysis, meditation and indeed preparing yourself for the New Moon. This cycle's experiences of spiritual dusting and cleaning as I call it is a must now to prepare for rebirth and great herbs to use in this period is Mint;
Take a salt bath with mint in it during this time as well
Drink Mint tea as you write in a journal of the things that you need to dust out of your life and get clear on.
I would also light one black candle and one white candle and sprinkle mint leaves around the candle and state this affirmation
I am complete and clear and preparing for my rebirth that is near.
Repeat three times and light the black candle first.
I am complete of white light and love and open my channels to get clearing energy from above
Repeat three times and light white candle
Thank your angels, guides for helping you get clear and refreshing and renewing your spirit
Seal with a so it is, and so it shall be.
All affirmations and intention work are the sole property of living joyfully now and if you repost,reprint on your blog, social media or on your site, please credit it back here to the original source remember sharing is caring but do it with a heart of light and love - thank you and my spirit guides are watching
Precious Pine, I feel as though I have loved this tree forever, and there are so many different species of the pine tree as well.I learned that there was like over 170 different species when I was in aromatherapy in school. They say the oldest pine tree is in California side note I want to go hug the oldest pine tree in California lol that is on my goal list. Ok, I feel you looking at me crazy hey this is a no judgment zone on my tree hugging here. Pine is fantastic because it has significant medicinal benefits, And you can use pine in many ways. You can use the cones, bark, and the resin as well as the pine needles. I would always tell people that are new to essential oils this is an excellent essential oil to keep in your box of essential oils because it can be used for so many things.
Pine inner bark are used and eaten once it is dried and eaten for its nutritional value. Pine needles can be utilized as well and brewed as a pine needle tea.
That has some excellent beneficial qualities high in vitamin c and pine needle tea, and pine bark is full of carotenoids which are great antioxidants for the body. They are particularly useful for people to increase eye health. Moreover, high for seniors also good to keep the skin healthy and get rid of blemishes as well. Why is pine is so precious to me because I love the fact that pine is so good for the skin? Using pine on a regular basis helps with keeping the skin young looking and help keep you wrinkle-free by eliminating the free radicals in the body. Furthermore, the vitamin C contributes to speed the healing process in your body because it helps with the red blood cell production which can assist in anemia.
I would never forget that when I was getting used to being an herbal intuitive that I saw pine in front of everyone at my daughter's school. And realized later on when I was learning to hone in on my gift that I saw the pine in front of everyone it was because it was cold and flu season and giving me a fair warning for everyone to boost their immune systems.
The magical properties of pine as an intuitive healer I love using herbs not only to heal my clients and me from the inside out I love using them as well in my prayers and intention candles. When I'm meditating on issues as well. So if you're meditating or clearing your space of negative energies, then pine is beautiful to work with. As well as if your inviting the vibrational qualities of money into your atmosphere then you can also burn pine, with nutmeg and cinnamon on charcoal as natural incense to help increase your vibration of money.
Pine is great for attracting prosperity, so I burn it as incense all the time, and in the winter I put pine needles in my fireplace as well. I always work on purifying my ritual area since I do ritual work for clients I use it with sage and it also works well with Palo Santo to purify and blesses a space for prosperity. Pine helps your success by getting rid of the negative attachments to money that one may have as well. Besides using it as a tea and drinking it, I also use the pine needle tea mixture as a floor wash I mix it with sea salt and some ammonia and clean my floor as well. To ward off negativity and keep prosperity attracted into my home. When cleaning your floors make sure that you get in the corners and behind doors as stagnant energy always finds a way to hide there, and it helps the chi in your house flowing as well.
If your zodiac sign is and air sign then according to western astrology if you’re an air sign in the zodiac such as a Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius pine is a great herb for you to use as well.
Here is a great simple recipe for pine needle tea. I would chop up about a cup of pine needles and then I would sit it in a big pot of boiling water. Make sure that your water is to an excellent hot boil before you add the pine. Reduce the heat to about a simmer for 20 minutes and remember that vitamin c is heated sensitive, so that is why you bring back down to a simmer. And after it simmers for 20 minutes then you allow it sit and steep in the water for 20 minutes. If you can let it sit overnight, then it would be even better. I drink some then I also after its cooled put some in a jar to make my floor wash later. I will share a floor wash recipe with you in a separate blog post coming soon.

Baking Soda and basil are bae that is for sure. Well, they are bae to me anyway Let me tell you when I was going through my divorce it was such an energy aura killer. Even after my divorce just speaking to my ex-husband was so energy draining about his million and one excuses on his non-child support payments. Me being the empath and intuitive that I am I knew when he was sincere in not making the payments and not having the money, and I also knew when he was being a complete bull shit artist about paying his child support. After our talks, I would get so drained, in my aura my light was a little less bright, and I stopped talking to him it got to the point I told him just to email me, and even in the emails he would drain me. Completely and utterly removing my bright light gradually I noticed that I would be a little less joyful and my manifesting game would be off after speaking to him. See I was letting his aura and negative lack mindset in my energy field. I was pulling in his aura into mine because let's face it was a natural thing we were married. We had children together.
So even after the breakup I was still pulling it in after our separation and being divorced. Moreover, I was taking my baths, and doing my energy work but nothing seemed to get my ex-husbands aura out of mine. It was so tough, for me I was talking to my mom about it one day, and my mom said get in some baking soda and imagine all his energy being pulled away and going down the drain and washed away forever. Imagine the baking soda giving your aura field a deep cleaning. She also gave me some prayers and psalms to say as well hey I cannot give you all the family secrets. However, I remember saying mom, baking soda.
She said yes get in the baking soda. Moreover, let me tell you After the baking soda bath and working through the energy and his aura still being in my field from being married I noticed after speaking to me it kept getting easier and easier and after every conversation we had, I would take a quick baking soda bad and feel so much better. Man, listen let me tell you baking soda is always a staple in my spiritual kick ass kit now who knew that a little standard item like baking soda packed such a spiritual punch. I always knew that baking soda is great detoxifier to use for sore muscles. However, not only does it pull out that soreness it help pull out evil aura energies as well. Moreover, contributing to moving through energy blocks that do not serve your highest good.
I know that salt is a good one but it just wasn’t getting it with my issues with my ex and the baking soda gave me a refreshed energy that returned me to my energetic vibration of myself. Why I like baking soda when taking a spiritual bath is because it helps to restore you to that sense of peace that you need after dealing with people that are exhausting or dealing with situations that are exhausting like divorce or breakups.
Ladies, you know how sometimes we can get that anxiety and depression sometimes that comes along with breaks and changes in relationships I feel baking soda helps a lot with that. I suggest if you have toxic relationships or aura cleaning to do then run a nice hot bath and I add two cups of baking soda in the tub and imagine that it is cleaning your aura field and returning you to yourself.
The mantra that I would say; I declare and decree that my energetic field is clear and free no negative entities can attach to me. With this bath, I’ am set free of any negative attachments to me.
Alternatively, I am full of white light and love, and I am set free from all negativity entities I clean them out today negativity entities cannot stay.
Alternatively, you can say: Toxic thoughts, toxic energy cannot stay I release them from my aura today.
Now dealing with my ex and getting a divorce brought money issues that I was not expecting or trying to manifest for myself that is for sure but let me tell you this.
I went to the books on this one I noticed that my grandmother had basil written so many time sin her work.
I was like well let me give it a try I wanst really working on my rituals consistently when using basil but let me tell you though basil combined with the 23rd Psalms has always blessed my life.
So I am never without basil as a staple in my spiritual kits as well
One thing besides basil baths that I love is basil tea
To make a basil bath, I say cook basil for at least one hour on low
Always try and use fresh basil as much as possible and then always ask the basil for its assistance talk to your plants set your intentions as high as possible.
Take about 3 – 4 leaves put it in a pot and boil that is it.
After you feel it is ready, your intuition will let you know then take a bath in it.
Say the Lords prayer three times and then the 23rd Psalms three times as well
Ask your guides to guide to prosperity and peace as a closure soak and submerge in the basil make sure it hits your neck and back because negative energy has a way of staying in these places. Drip Dry and relax and do a meditation while your drying on receiving your prosperity and abundance. After your bath dress in bright colored PJs if you can and settle down with some basil tea and write in your journal or talk to your spirit guides about manifesting your prosperity.
Remember to save some of the basil water for your tea to drink later drink it without processed sugars if you can enjoy the authentic natural flavors of the herbs.
If you are feeling badly blocked or need real manifesting help do these rituals for at least three days – 30 days would be better to get your mind and body in the right mind frame for manifesting.
Blessings let me know how you like this article and what herbs, rituals and spiritual tips that you need for bringing joy into your life let me know. Would be glad to share.
I started the last day of October In meditation; I asked Spirit what is it that we should be doing for November, what Is that I should be learning from and manifesting for myself this new month new season. Then I saw a periscope from the astrology Sonja Marie. See before the scope came on I was in meditation and asked Spirit where and what do you really actually want from me in regards to this spiritual business earlier that day. I sat in front of my ancestor altar meditating away for ancestral guidance as well. I said ancestors from my mother and father side only the ancestors that have my highest good in order what do you have for you, daughter? After ritual and meditation, I went about my day, and I remember going to the bathroom and looking in the mirror. Saying Ok guys help a sister out was one of the questions that I had posed in meditation about and an hour later as I tapped away at the computer doing my school work my PC froze. I lost my 8-page paper to the land of the freeze of equipment and me forgetting to save the work. Being thoroughly frustrated with spirit and myself I needed a computer break and at that moment my periscope notification went off it was Sonja Marie from http://wordlifeastrology.com I decided to watch her scope because her periscopes are insightful and funny and always seem to have a great message for me.
This scope was on the energy of the new moon and releasing and letting the stuff and “ Charlies in our life go” See the thought of releasing and sharing how you can let that stuff that no longer serves your highest good go was so on point for me because it came up in meditation and prayer. It thoroughly inspired me Sonja encouraged us to type in ways we can release, and she also shared her wisdom on how to do it as well. She also invited us to share, tell someone to teach someone what you know write a blog post share the knowledge in the world just get it out there.
See I have been complementing that after my free read with her. I have thought about putting myself out there and sharing my spiritual knowledge more. However, I would not fully surrender to my calling of spirit. I kept asking myself if I am wise enough is seven years of studying herbology, aromatherapy, and the spiritual world enough. Is all the certificates of the all the training that I have attended is it enough. Moreover, is all the information that my ancestors left me to watch over and share is that enough. Moreover, who and what will pay me see I have a few clients that do pay me, But I have not been surrendering to this work full time as I should. Helping like I know I can. I never put myself out there as I should because I would not surrender to this work as being enough. Now don’t get me wrong When I see people in spiritual need I help of course that is the motherly cancer zodiac in my soul, but I know that I am supposed to serve adequately and full. However, I would look at the world and not look at the Spirit as my right guide.
See it was not an accident that my computer froze, and I got frustrated and that I wanted to throw the PC. I needed a break; I needed to hear that message when Sonja came on so at that moment, I needed that push and inspiration, In real Sonja fashion she inspired she pushed and made me laugh in the scope. So after the periscope, I decided to do a scope on herbs and how they can help and assist in manifesting. Moreover, guess what she popped in and shared the broadcast and I had a splendid time to share knowledge and helping people out. After the show, I felt a real happiness and peace. So this challenge was born from that after the show, and I went to sleep this grand challenge came to me in a dream last night. It said just as you have had trouble surrendering to your true calling that has been holding you back from manifesting your dreams there are others that are holding themselves back as well because they will not surrender to spirit.
So for the next 30 days in November, we are surrendering to spirit the things that no longer serve us. We are abandoning the things that keep us from manifesting our desires. We are surrendering to the will of the divine in us and by surrendering of our higher spiritual selves is a form of gratitude. So join me on this journey of surrender I will be on periscope scoping every morning between the times of 7:30 am – 8:30 am I am in Eastern Standard Time zone. Moreover, I will post a short three-minute periscope on surrendering and then a meditation periscope on Tuesday & Wednesdays, and whenever else spirit hits me to do so. Every day I will post what we will surrender on Instagram and Facebook as well and blog about it too so follow me on @livingjoyfulnow
So let's make November a month of planting the seeds of manifesting by quitting the things that no longer serve us so when it is time to pick our harvest we are free and clear
Welcome to your new life of manifesting greatness.
