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
