Wow! I don’t know about you, but August for me was “the best of times, the worst of times” (apologies to Charles Dickens). Best birthday cake EVER, followed by most intense personal challenge EVER. I’m coming out of the woods on the challenge now, and I am frankly bowled over by the spiritual help I received to take care of every single need along the way. Whoever’s been sending positive energy and intention my way, I’m here to tell you IT MADE A DIFFERENCE. And thank you ❤
And now, here we are in September–a new month with new promises (and probably new challenges). Not to overemphasize the SuperMoon, but September holds the final Moon phase of the three-month SuperMoon cycle for 2014. So we can expect a final round of SuperMoon energy impact that intensifies each phase of the Moon’s cycle this month, plus a sort of “bonus” culmination of all that the three-month cycle has brought up for us.
As you may have learned from other SuperMoon info, the Moon has a metaphysical or energetic influence on our emotions and intuition. As part of the overall Pluto/Uranus square “clean up your act” astrological emphasis, I’ve felt the SuperMoon cycles putting out a sort of energetic tractor beam that has relentlessly hauled old, painful or negative emotional patterns up to the surface of our awareness, along with a heightened intuitive awareness of the emotions of OTHERS. So if you are energetically sensitive or empathic, you are not only getting a megadose of your OWN stuff to deal with, you are also getting a megadose of the conflicts, pain, and resistance from OTHERS working on THEIR stuff! Yowza. Not fun. And it’s just going to keep happening this month. But stay tuned for the good news!
The impact is major–but the intent is benevolent, if you can take a moment to step back from the swamp of emotions and crazy thoughts, and tune in to Spirit’s guidance. We are being called, again relentlessly, to clear out what has obviously NOT been working for us energetically and emotionally. Only by releasing this energetic gunk can we open up our inner spaces to receive the pure, loving Divine energy that is supposed to be in us instead, so we can create lives that truly fulfill our soul callings–and that actually feel a lot better in the body, too!
So how do you get there from here? Two fundamentals will make for smoother sailing this September:
==> Self-Care–managing your own energy and keeping it clean throughout each day
==> Support–getting new input and healing energy to clear out old stuff more quickly and easily
About self-care–one thing I’ve learned from my dance training AND my spiritual practice is that you never stop needing to work the basics. In dance, you never stop needing those warmup exercises–and you often need to fine-tune or change them up so they help you more as your skills develop. In spiritual practice, same thing. You never stop needing to follow basic spiritual or energetic hygiene routines for yourself, and you may need to rework or upgrade your techniques at this time to stay afloat in the sea of everyone’s stuff.
And about support–there’s only so much anyone can do for him/herself. Humans are social creatures, and we truly NEED the contact and new energy that others can bring to us. A trusted friend or healer can do wonders to get us out of our own mental ruts and into a new state of being that allows change to happen with much more ease. There are many types of no-cost or low-cost energy support available. Ask to be guided to what will help you right where you are, and opportunities WILL show up for you!
Here’s what I’ve found most helpful to me in navigating the often stormy waters of the recent SuperMoons:
1. Frequent and regular grounding, in my personal elements
. That’s the first step in my 5-step psychic safety process, and it is essential to discharge your own excess energy/emotions as well as those of others that worm their way into your fields. This step and the whole 5-step process is in my miniguide for subscribers, SpiritWalking 101

Note: to remind myself about grounding, and to give myself added support, I keep a grounding talisman with me–a stone from the local beach (I’m finding these days that a plain rock is often better for basic grounding than a crystal). Depending on your preferred Earth elements, you may want a different talisman with you to help keep you grounded.
2. Honoring my body with good food, rest, simple movement–and laughter! I can handle tough stuff much better if I’m rested and fed and had a bit of exercise–all truly basic, but often neglected in times of stress. Plus, I REALLY need to read/see/hear stuff that makes me laugh or at least smile. The physical benefits of laughter are well-documented, and laughing is a powerful way to get back into the present moment–the ONLY place of true power.
3. Seeking and taking in what is beautiful around me. I have talked with many weary warriors, both physical and non-physical, and I find that what they most need to restore their souls is a fresh encounter with Beauty in whatever form they most appreciate. The gifted writer John O’Donohue wrote a book titled Beauty: the Invisible Embrace. And that is how beautiful music and landscapes feel to me. Nurture your own soul with beauty, and you will feel revived physically and spiritually as well.
4. Receiving healing energy from others whenever possible. I’ve found some places in Seattle that offer spiritual healing clinics or special events on a donation basis or even as a gift to the community. And I have had profound benefits from these healing times. Also, I regularly seek distant healing from others who offer it to me–and that has made a significant difference–subtle and gentle, but definitely apparent!
My F*REE distant healing session for all subscribers is coming this Sunday, September 7, from 6-7 pm PDT. So once you subscribe and opt in, energy support is on the way to help you with the Full Moon and final Moon phases this month! At least one good dose of support! 🙂
But I’d like you to consider this:
What if you could get DAILY energy support, to help you KEEP your energy clear, and also continually bring in more Divine energy for long-term, gentle healing? What if those old patterns could simply be melted away by a continuous flow of healing energy calibrated just for you?
If that feels as good to you as it does to me, check out this NEW possibility
now open to you! And let me know what comments or questions you might have about it or about distant healing in general. I’d love to share with you!
