Chakras and Lunar phases

An on-going project....


New moon or waxing crescent

The first chakra is rooted in the base of the spine and associated with the earth element linked to your ability to feel firmly rooted in your life. It is also associated with the colour red so what does this mean and how can you work with this on a new moon?

The base is a good way to start new beginnings and reset. A chance to go deep into the body and tap into the earth when setting new intentions and goals. All the time stay grounded and focused on the self and become more aware of not only your new intentions but where in your root chakra you might be carrying old ideas and blockages. Again these are just suggestions and something you might helpful to work with so, with that in mind, lets get started.

  1. set a safe space to do your ceremony or ritual
  2. make sure you are not disturbed
  3. light a candle with the colour red if you have one
  4. have something red to represent the root chakra
  5. soft music is also very helpful in the background - healing music is always a good choice
  6. a pen and paper to write your intentions on and to write of what needs to be healed and let go of so you can direct your intentions to positive thoughts and ideas
  7. call in your guides Angels, and the directions to guide and protect you as you begin.

Now the root chakra is a place of grounding and is associated with a sense of security, relationships with yourself and your family so it would be a good time to write down on your piece of paper where you are in your life as you tune into the root chakra.

Do you feel a lack of security or disconnection or blocked? take as long as you need to do this, then bring the focus on what it is you would like to embrace in your life and manifest on this new moon. Again write it down if you wish with the energy of the new moon in mind and heart. You may also like to do a meditation and it can bring about clarity and focus.

Some affirmations are good to do around the new moon and visualisation:

  1. my heart is open to receive all the love in the universe for the highest good.
  2. I trust that I am fully supported by the universe
  3. I open myself to the magic and miracles that are available to me each day
  4. I allow love to fill me
  5. I have the power to shape my reality
  6. My light shines brightly with the new moon energy today
  7. I release what no longer serves me and make room for new beginnings

And when you are ready see all being transmuted for healing and know and trust all is well on this new moon so you can embark on a journey with a light body, mind, and soul.

Remember to close down your space and give thanks to your angels and guides for helping you at this time and to the elements and directions. Many blessings to you all on the new moon. Bernadette Mac.

Full moon

When the moon is a blood moon the colour red brings me to the base chakra, the root. It is about grounding yourself as we work through whatever is needed around the full moon. Maybe wear the colour red or put it around your home, place of work. It will help not only with grounding but healing in your space and surrounding area.

Take time to press the pause button in your life and wait and find balance, stay strong, and staying in your personal space and also remember to do the same for others.

New moon

Healing of the heart - Working on putting the past to bed once and for all.

As the vibration around the new moon is so intense and brings with it not only light but shadow work, be mindful of how you relate to others. Are you being triggered around people, places at this time? Are there memories coming to the surface you thought were gone? Be gentle with yourself and ask for guidance. Remember this is about you and where you are at on your spiritual journey. Take this opportunity on the new moon to set aside time to do inner work or talk it through with someone you feel safe with, a counsellor or trusted friend, or maybe you are one of those people who find healing and answers in nature, meditation, shamanic, work yoga.

The new moon is a very powerful one and it is time now to fight for your true self and break through barriers and walls that block you from moving forward and stand in your light. It is very much a karmic time and putting the past to bed once and for all. Yay! A time of deep healing. A new chapter, planting new seeds, new beginnings and putting the past to bed, whatever is going on for you at this time. And may I add, for the highest good of all involved. I felt very guided to write this today, a few days before the new moon and noticed today's date is the 4th of the 4th 2024.

So I thought 'hmm' let's go with this and see where it takes me. Number 4 being the heart charka in Sanskrit, "Anahata" means unhurt, unstuck and unbeaten. It's the fourth primary chakra and serves as our centre of love for oneself and others, compassion, empathy and forgiveness. The Anahata chakra is associated with unconditional love. Many people have blocked heart chakras. There's one root cause - EMOTIONAL TRAUMA. The trauma might have occurred in this life, or past lives, or many lifetimes. The trauma creates wounds that cause people to feel that they are not worthy of love so they shut their hearts down.

On this new moon tap into the heart, open the heart, don't hide your head in the sand. The triggering is happening for a reason - to bring about your gifts look for the red flags of your self-sabotage. Do the deep work now, on the eclipse.

I hope that it will reach some of you on this new moon. you know what they say if a small piece of info gets to one person or more that will help in a positive way that can only ripple on and on in a positive way that, will bring about healing.

Again these are just suggestions for the new moon on the 8th of April 2024 as each person's journey is different as I said before but with a soul support network. So I would like to finish off with a song that Nora reminded me of. I went on YouTube to seek out the lyrics of Total Eclipse of the Heart and so it goes:

Once in a time I falling love
And now I'm only falling apart
There is nothing I can do a total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time, there was light in my life
And now there is only love in the dark
nothing I can say a total eclipse of the heart.

Fall in love with the self. Falling apart is necessary to bring about healing and change. Love in the dark is like a seed that needs to grow and the light is always in your life.

May I suggest that you play this song as if you were speaking to all in you that need healing?

Sing the words to you - wow it is a very powerful song look for the hidden messages in it.

Full moon

Hi everyone - a little update on the full moon in November 27th / 28th 2023

This full moon is otherwise known as the Beaver moon and is linked to the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in there lodges, having gathered food to last through the winter and this is the same for us on some level. So what can we do around the full moon to enlighten our body mind, and soul?

The full moon is also connected to the heart chakra so let's focus on that for a few moments as we set intentions and bring about healing for ourselves and the world around us.

Simply just breathe. Take a deep breath and feel peace in the heart.

See an emerald green light come from the light of the moon to your heart centre and feel peace in that moment as the full moon highlights the need to find balance between emotional responses and logical thinking, promoting reflection on personal communication and decision making.

So with peace in mind and heart take a breath and exhale that feeling out into the world with love and healing. As we too go inwards, like the Beaver, take comfort in the knowing all is well in that moment.
