Why Letting Go on the Full Moon is the Key to Creativity

Why Letting Go on the Full Moon is the key to Creativity_Mel Bikowski

Happy Friday, Everyone! Did you feel that Full Harvest Moon last night? 

Letting go on the Full Moon can be a challenge. It can be intimidating and challenging to enter a state of self awareness. It can be scary to find out that we are all connected and we are not as unique as we think we are. It can be EVEN scarier to realize that our problems aren't unique and there are thousands among thousands of people out there that are dealing with the same energy shifts that you might be feeling.

I feel you. It's scary as hell! But something I realized is, it is also empowering. You are not ALONE in this world. You are not alone EVER. And that is why I worship the rituals of Nature. Because it reminds me that these challenges, these new shifts, these obstacles are just cycles within our society collectively that we are all healing. Understanding the cycles also helps me clear up any and all emotions, thoughts, situations, or issues that might be removing me from my connection with the things that are most important to me which is creativity, connection, and family.

 

These Rituals bring me CLOSER to my true intentions and source. It connects my light and darkness. It allows me to be ME through and through!

The Ritual Process goes:

  1. Open my Full Moon Journal
  2. Check out The Energy of the Full Moon- some good places are Chani Nicholas or Hoodwitch if you need some assistance on this!
  3. Set an Intention about what I am releasing or illuminating that applies to this moon
  4. Reflect on my goals, my life, and make sure that everything within is in alignment with me.
  5. Release it- if that means dance it out, write it down, lash out paint on a canvas, or just clean my house- Vibes Be Gone!
  6. Do a Tarot Reading- Write down my self awareness, my creative goals, and connect with my spiritual guides through the cards.
  7. Share my knowledge with the community

So What Am I letting go on This Full Moon?

This past couple of weeks, I have started my last semester of school (for now) and I find myself in one of the most turbulent semesters that I have EVER experienced. It's distracted me from community, family, and creativity. It has made me feel somewhat destructive and angry and most of all stressed out! (yikes!)

So, here comes the full moon- time for journaling, tarot, and addressing my own problems. But not just my own, I needed to be social and face the community! I host Full Moon Workshops once a month in my studio and I was feeling a sense of chaos and forcefulness in my soul. I am so excited to host these workshops for everyone that it was KILLING me to not put my full attention to it. My Tiger is so close to being unleashed on all things that don't let me do what I want!!!!!!

So here we are, Full Moon in Aries.

The Full Moon for me is a ceremony to celebrate beginnings and ends. To address goals that we can illuminate and goals that we can end. I realized this full moon that I want more time for Family, School, and Creativity that I am going to put a pause on these workshops until Next year when I have graduated and have so much more time for the community.

On top of that, I have so much creative juices ready to explode on the canvas that I truly need to find more time for my Shaman Creative Thesis.

And letting go of these workshops for the year of 2017 is giving me space to shine on what matters most to me. It is also showed me how boldy and brightly and independent I am. It feels good to say that I am not honoring myself and it feels good to be heard.

This space will allow my art to grow, my school, and my family. I can't wait!

I have more space for creativity. I have more space to be myself.

But let me just say that last night at our workshop at Olly Olly. We had one of the best meditations that we have ever had. The support and vibrations from the community that we have built at Olly Olly through these workshops is amazing and I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting me on letting me pause and take some time for myself. I really look forward to coming back in full swing to help you all out and continue sharing how applicable, pratical, and mindful Astrology and Meditation can be used as a tool to ignite our creative Fires.

Love you all lots.

Wildly,

Mel

 

Full Moon in Sagittarius Meditation- June 9 2017

Full Moon Meditation June 9th June 9th– Full Moon in Sagittarius- Friday, 8-9pm

Thank you for coming to this Full Moon Meditation Meeting. I am grateful to know some of you well and looking forward to getting to know some of you better. This meeting of souls is meant to not only strengthen your self-love practices, but also to lengthen and deepen our connection with community, art, and love.

So, Why Meditation and Why on the Full Moon?

The beginning of the Full Moon Meditation series at my studio in Olly Olly happened on June 9th with the moon shining bright in the constellation Sagittarius. I was born under a sun sign in Sagittarius and so was my studio mate, Lotus Heartsong, so it really aligned with our intentions to start this series on this moon in a studio filled with Sagittarius Energy.

The night was packed with open connections where people met each other and established new friendships as well as reconnected with old friendships. I was able to share one of my original written meditations and did open tarot readings with everyone in the room. We spoke about our dreams, our wounds, our life, and our intentions for the gathering. I passed out flowers and I felt like we really took the time to celebrate the moon.

 

Something that I have learned over my many years of self-development is that we need a ritual and more than anything we need meditation to break free of the mind and lower frequencies. Everything that we seek in this moment should be through the heart. Meditation allows us to focus on what we can do that is past our egos and illusion. It allows us to accept our purpose and even better it gives us space to find it.

We are on this planet to connect with our self-awareness. Identify with our shifts and understand our cycles. Much like the Moon, we as humans have our own cycles. We can evolve from them and we can do that through meditation and through the ritual of gathering and celebrating on a Full Moon.

For me, I am an intuitive artist that recreates intuitive/cosmic landscapes that represent different places in my own subconscious mind. Through meditation, I have been able to travel to many places vast and far. It is one thing to travel our Earth and experience it; it is another to see the connection of our outward experiences and how they link to our inward cycles.

The Moon is a symbol of our feminine energy that is inside each and every one of us. And as I connect closer with my sacred masculine and feminine energy; I have continuous clarity. This clarity begins to allow me to integrate and break free of my own cycles and it teaches me how to understand and learn my lessons, but most of all to grow from them.

The Full Moon throughout the ages has been something to look upon. During chaos or balance, it is always been something that we as humans have realized that our emotions and our consciousness is connected to. The full moon for me is like a magnifying glass. A place every month that I can sit down and pause. What is my energy flowing towards? Does the archetype of the moon apply to what I have going on in my own life?

I am here to show you all the way to delving into a practice like this. Seeking a deeper understanding of yourself through meditation and astrological archetypes to better see the gifts that you have.

I have a few gifts myself that I have found through meditation. I am a creative, a teacher, and a challenger. I seek to understand and share my wisdom with this Earth through my purpley indigo creative ways. I hope to inspire and achieve deeper connections with my human tribe and that is why we are here. Together.

To connect with humans that are different from ourselves, but yet, still here for the same reasons. To spread love.

The next meditation will happen on July 9th with my friend and studio mate, Lotus Heartsong. Follow the Facebook Event to stay connected with news about the meditation series and follow along.

"I am tickled to announce that this is coming together really well.. This event will be workshop style in which we connect and build energy, experience a guided meditation in following our hearts cushioned by strong psychological support systems, and ends in an optional archetype yoga sequence for positive transformation that I have just finished creating. (First ever) I want you all to leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to shine under the influence of the next full moon and our positive community. Please wear comfortable clothes, bring a yoga mat if possible, and be ready to spiritually party. Love you all and have a great weekend."
