"Hola and welcome back to my kinda moonly, reflective blog, diary, general sharing of my life here & now on this gorgeous planet of ours."
I started writing this blog diary in April this year.... and plan to continue a week or so before each full moon.....
"IT IS MY HOPE, PRAYER & MISSION TO BE & TO CREATE A SACRED SPACE IN EVERYDAY LIFE" May We're way into May now, and here in Ibiza, in the Northern Hemisphere, the mornings are light and lovely and nights are drawing out with golden hazy sunsets galore!
Ibiza, which sits in the Mediterranean sea, is a seasonal island of course & so energies are not only rising towards the full moon on the night of Saturday 18th May, but they are also rising with regards to tourists arriving, increase of cars on the normally quiet, winding roads & peaceful beaches now filling up with umbrellas, sunloungers & swarms of red & swollen bodies. It's a far cry from the serene depths of the winter, where flowers still bloom but locals are in the majority... but every year, it's what we face!
Typically at this time, I therefore begin to focus on staying extra clean and flexible. I'm always healthy & permanently follow a Ketogenic/ eating lifestyle, created by my Keto Guru Deborah Murtagh in New Zealand but around April & May, my instincts guide me to take even greater care of myself. Spring & Summer are naturally times to grow, evolve & create anyway, so, just like your garden, you gotta water the plants, weed out the overgrowth & take extra care of the soil & the roots, or "body !" in our case.
You also gotta wash away what holds you back and allow in the clean & new!
The next Moonwash Cycle starts Sunday 2nd June (last joining date Monday 27th May) so message me if you'd like to join us.
The Moonwash is my 3 month life cleansing programme & also my baby & it helps me and many women around the world, so much to stay FLOWING and to not over worry about anything.
It's designed for this & when I received it, in a vision, my intuition likened the Moon's phases to that of a washing machine (learn more about this by clicking here !)
I love this analogy and so Spring Moonwashes are particularly fresh and lively for me as I awaken & allow myself to grow into Summer!
Today I enjoyed a fab hour long Pilates class on YouTube with Fitness Blender, who offer free workouts.
In week 2 of the wash, we get more active & upwards with the Moon's cycle as we approach Full Moon & I usually have much more energy, so I plan in and enjoy more active & challenging workouts like this on purpose! I've learned the hard way, that if I don't plan these & truly recognise how I feel at each phase, I can easily become STUCK in negative thinking &, if I'm going to air my dirty laundry as the name of this blog suggests ;-) , then, I admit, if I don't plan in movement & exercise, I can feel super negative & sorry for myself!!!! Stagnation is not natural, as the moon teaches us.
Flow & evolution, is!
Fortunately for me, as an Intuitive & Natural Empowerment Coach, & Mamma of the Moonwash, I HAVE to be the change I want to see in the world, so this morning I hopped onto my pink yoga mat and got STUCK into a great session. As Benjamin Franklin said "Fail to plan & plan to fail!" And when I quote this, I recognise that most people living a normal life in this day and age, are so busy planning & chasing their tails, that they really do NOT want anything else added to their already bulging "to do list" BUT our health & state of mind are the foundation when it comes to living a good life so I believe in cultivating deep routines into my life & into the lives of my clients, which help us stay nourished, inspired & in a natural flow!
I do all my yoga, pilates and exercise sessions online because I love my own space. I also don't own a car since two and a half years, so find working out online in my own schedule, in the comfort of my own home, gives me so much joy and, increasing health & happiness. Saves so much time too!
SO IN MAY, HEALTH & FITNESS ARE KEY.... but also I am increasing my meditation practice too as the rush of rising energies can be ungrounding. A neighbour's dog is rather feisty and quite large and scary & she has a habit of surging towards my dogs & me when she sees us. She's never on a lead & comes AT us, teeth gritted so it's not comfortable, even though she's done it many times. For the first time today, I challenged her owner & asked him why he does nothing! His reply was that his "dog whisperer" says there is no problem, that she won't hurt anyone, so there is no problem! I beg to differ & found myself pushed over an edge this morning. I was proud that I didn't end up acting like an "over emotional woman" but did become slightly heated & couldn't let the negativity go for the almost half of my walk thereafter. With a mindfulness practice I was able though, to quickly see the bigger picture & release my fixed ideas about this man, whose dog I actually like, but feel needs his authority.
My point here is of course, that we cannot control or change others but we can become more heard, when we have our feet on the ground & can communicate non violently. I'm getting there but today showed me some areas I can work on! AND some things I need to put in the metaphorical wash!!!!!
GOING ON TOUR I have a reoccuring call within to travel. It's not this year I don't sense but potentially in 2020 I will embark on an adventure, whereby I begin to visit sacred sites & places around the world. It's my mission to bring the sacred into everyday life & the ancients lived this way without any question. I want & yearn to be in their creations & tap into what the divine was saying to them to cause them to invest such energy & vast amounts of time into structures of worship, which still exist today. I do believe that they created them for us, prophecying a time when humans would become so disconnected from the sacred & begin themselves to seek it again, once realising that without it, we are living empty & meaningless lives, which harm the planet on which we depend.
I will of course, keep you posted on this but already, in connecting with this vision again during this Moon, I am naturally attracting people in alignment with its manifestation. So far, people who host boat trips on the Nile, someone who studies Egyptian Mythology & Asil Toksal, a channel who has visited 80 sacred sites in the last six weeks!!!!!! I met him randomly as I was invited to join his table as he synchronistically started to tell his story. A divine timing indeed for me & deeply inspiring AND confirming.
Let's see what unfolds this moon shall we.....? But I used to be a travel agent & then an air stewardess in my twenties, so it's so in my blood to travel. The last few years of aligning & grounding after my spiritual awakening in L.A. in 2005, have kept me firmly planted in Ibiza but I feel it in my waters...... I'm about to fly.
There's a massive shift occuring astrolologically right now & I collate my current favourite astrologers' updates on my page The Moonwash Higher Perspective so I highly recommend you have a look & keep updating your mind, so you're aware of what we're being guided & supported into currently as a collective. Being aware & open to receive is a prerequisite for our collective transformation.
THE NEXT MOONWASH BEGINS AT THE START OF JUNE, WITH LAST ENTRANCE HAPPENING ON MONDAY 27TH MAY SO PLEASE CONNECT WITH ME IF YOU'D LIKE MORE INFORMATION, OR IF YOU FEEL YOURSELF CALLED TO LEARN ABOUT THE MOON CYCLE, WOULD LIKE GUIDANCE ON HOW TO BENEFIT FROM YOUR INTUITION & TO GET YOURSELF OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY IN LIFE.
Life is indeed sacred & it's our role to make that so, even in our busy everyday lives! It truly is what the world needs now.
OK everyone, I wish you a fabulous forthcoming full moon & very much look forwards to all it flowers in us humans this time. It is indeed an incredible time to be alive!
All my love, Julie Moonflower XXX
15th April 2019 I've just been looking ahead at this week and the forthcoming Full Moon on Friday (1212 GMT) and it feels like this cycle is whooshing by to be! My own Moonwash is on full speed this time around and I'm personally dissolving so many old judgments and ideas about myself that if I didn't have The Moonwash, I don't think it would have been possible!
As a teacher of "letting go", it's not difficult to deduce who is my worst client is it......? Yes, it's ME!!!!!! It's so easy to guide others and to see where they are blocked and this is why I am so grateful to The Universe and my higher self for giving me this understanding of the moon and how it's a tool for cleansing & seeing where we are blocked. I hold much wisdom, but integrating that & truly transforming from old ways, is often deeply challenging.
Opening up to receive higher guidance has been my work for over a decade, but until The Moonwash, I was usually opening up to channel other people's guidance and of course I gained a lot from that but found myself sitting outside of a circle somehow and was consistantly blocked in letting go of some of my own ancient wounds that kept painful & repetitive relationship patterns alive & kicking in my own life!
The gentleness and patience of the moon cycle is.... PRICELESS for this inner work. Painful old patterns probably won't fade over night, but, over time and with consistent washing.... out come the stains we thought would never leave us and we are renewed & open to new dynamics. It takes courage.
Anyway, I have created much more inner space for myself this year so that I can finally make these shifts, and what I have been finding, particularly this week, is that I am much more centred in my truth and this has allowed me to be more still around others and much more able to allow things to be as they are.
The result is the much needed release of so much stress and tension in my body, which I was causing in all the resistance to what was.
A lady dropped a whole paper cup of piping hot coffee over me yesterday at San Joan Market and she was more concerned at a slight drop or two on her skirt than she was of my burnt leg and entire right side of my dress soaked in her coffee. In fact she didn't even look at me whilst washing herself off! NOT A WORD SHE SPOKE TO ME! My jaw was wide open but a great and wonderful inner part of me saw the higher path and also that this was one of a series of events this week in which I was left dumbfounded (too shocked to speak) at others' unbelievable behaviour but in each case, I have kept my thoughts to myself and not in a frustrated way but in a suddenly wow, oh my goodness this is so liberating and amazing way!
Perhaps this sounds a bit naive or weak but to me, I sensed in every event, that the other person was oblivious and that my opinion in that moment would have been resisted and I would just have been seen as the villain, so keeping quiet was actually a huge gift for me; people are people are as they are and we can't change them! Phew! What a lesson and what a FREEDOM to be able to pop them (and my dress) in the wash and accept them as they are? Being AWARE of others is very different to shutting up or shutting down. And this is my wonderful lesson this cycle.
What was also lovely was that the coffee shop gave me my drink for free AND a man in the queue lent me a cold can of drink to rest on my burnt skin! Had I only focussed on the "oblivious coffee spilling lunatic woman", I might have missed the other gifts all around me and been too closed to also receive a number compliments on the aformentioned coffee stained dress! And not one person noticed the coffee spillage :-)
One of my Moonwash Items this cyle was about my social life, which is rather small these last few years. I'm sensitive and, as you may gather, a recovering judgment addict, thinking that everyone around me ought to be as sensitive and aware as me but how AWARE am I, if I am constantly in resistance? So here's my dirty laundry, shared in public :-) I am a recovering judgement addict! And recovery feels sooooooooo good! Wow..... I am finally feeling genuine inner freedom from others, even though others have not changed at all! And you know what, my social life is opening up and changing too! As within, so without!
My sharing this week is pretty much centred around this subject and so I hope it may help you to find more inner space in your life too or, if nothing else, bring you a giggle at my coffee saga.
Ghandi was not joking when he said "Be the change you wish to see in the world." And it's the same with Forgiveness. When we forgive someone or release them from our judgments, they AND we receive the benefits! Free coffees, compliments and a very lovely day at the market for me.
Here's to a full flowing and bubbly, beautiful FULL MOON peak to your wash this weekend.
I'll be thinking of you and dancing in the moonlight with you in my mind. Until next time. All my love Julie xxx
