July 1st Full Moon in Capricorn

Posted by on Jun 30, 2015 in Susie's Blog | Comments Off on July 1st Full Moon in Capricorn

July 1st @ 7:19pm pdt Full Moon in Capricorn Key Words: Power, Challenge, Action Focus: Personal Development Polarity seems to be a main theme for this moon…we may see both challenge and opportunity this month so being vigilant in nonresistance will be key. Relax into the push pull of the planetary energy at this time as this may be the perfect time to release any old emotional patterns in exchange for a powerful wholeness. This month may feel like puberty all over again as you may feel the call to grow and develop and at once feeling overwhelmed. This is the time to call on what you “know”…you are never at the mercy of the planetary alignment…they are there for opportunities for growth if you will just focus and align your energy. Helpful tools will be physical exercise, meditation, laughter and nature. Stay aware, stay conscious, recognize how wonderfully far you’ve come thus far as a result of your spiritual practices!!!...

New Moon In Gemini

Posted by on Jun 15, 2015 in Susie's Blog | Comments Off on New Moon In Gemini

Just a reminder that we have some interesting and powerful moon cycles upon us. So how do we take advantage of this? Full Moons are thought to be a perfect time for releasing all that is not working for us in our lives…this can be things, habits, thoughts, beliefs, relationships, etc. New Moons are said to be the time to set your intentions for “new” in your life. The time to get clear and ask for what you truly want in your life. So, how does this work? For me, I see the moon as “Spirit” expressing as the moon. The list making, and the ritual of gazing at the moon with my intentions, fills me with belief that “with Spirit, all things are possible”…and then I watch, without attachment, for the manifestation of the items on my list to appear in my reality. So this next Tuesday, June 16th we will see the New Moon in Gemini…this is not only a good time for new beginnings, but an auspicious time for “do overs”. Enthusiasm is always helpful, however due to the current close proximity of Mars, with its aggressive energy, be sure to temper things a bit when what you want requires you to negotiate with others. This new moon is about communication so be sure to heed this advice in order to keep your conversations calm and productive and moving toward your goal. We hope you will enjoy this beautiful New Gemini Moon and will prepare for the two full moons in July!...

Don’t Make Assumptions

Posted by on Jun 5, 2015 in Susie's Blog | Comments Off on Don’t Make Assumptions

THE THIRD AGREEMENT from Don Miguel Ruiz¹ Book ³The Four Agreements² is DON¹T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS. We have the tendency to make assumptions about everything. The problem with making assumptions is that we believe they are the truth. We could swear they are real. We make assumptions about what others are doing or thinking ‹ we take it personally ‹ then we blame them and react by sending emotional poison with our word. That is why whenever we make assumptions, we¹re asking for problems. We make an assumption, we misunderstand, we take it personally, and we end up creating a whole big drama for nothing. For example, you are at a party or BBQ and someone you really like walks in, you thought they really liked you too. However, they smiled said hello and moved along. You couldŠnot take it personally or make any assumption and move onŠbut most likely that voice in your head goes from zero to 60 in 2.2 secondsŠand we start with the chatter; Œwow I guess she doesn¹t like me¹ or Œwhat did I do to her¹ – or we can choose NOT to assume anythingŠrealize this is her thing and move on to the next scenario. OrŠyou get home from work and your spouse is cranky and short with youŠyou begin the chatterŠ “oh no! What did I do?² and then begin the vicious cycle of trying to please him/her as all of us as caretakers tend to do! Instead realizeŠthis is none of MY businessŠand allow him/her some space. Your love will not change anyone, although it may seem to soften them up a bitŠpeople only change when they are ready and for themselves. The biggest assumption (in my opinion) is that we assume everyone sees the world and each circumstance the way WE do. We assume they think, feel, and even judge the way we do. This assumption sparks our own internal fear of being ourselves around othersŠwe think they will judge, victimize or blame us; just as we do to ourselves. So before someone has the opportunity to accept or reject us, we have already rejected ourselves. The way to keep from making assumptions is to ask questions. If you don¹t understand, askŠclear communication leads us to the truth. Also, do not be afraid to ask for what you want, for no one but you knows what that request could be. Become aware of your daily/moment by moment habits of assumingŠand in each moment take action toward clarity and...
