September Full Moon-Face Your Fears and Get Ready for Massive Growth!

Yippee!! You know I absolutely love the full and new moons but this month I’m even more excited about it. Wanna know why? It’s the day before my birthday! Yay!! I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a stressful last couple of months for me but this month’s full moon urges you, and me, to face your fears. Boom!! You know I love talking about fears and overcoming them and living life to the fullest.

So let’s talk about this a little more. The full moon for September falls on the 24th. A day before my birthday. YAY! That means I get to have full moon water for my birthday AND my son will be here visiting. Oh JOY!!!! Does it get any better? I doubt it.

Face your fears

Remember the new moon of September? The message was it’s time to reap what you sow. It’s no surprise the full moon is called the harvest moon but is fear holding you back? Have you been in a fear and lack mentality for the past little while? Don’t feel bad. We all have been. The energy from the lunar eclipses and retrogrades from a couple of months ago was heavy and many of us are still trying to recover from that.

So much emotional turmoil!

But it’s time to step into your power, face your fears and face the reality that you totally are deserving of all the crops that will be harvesting over the next month or two  Stand tall in the magnificence that you are and claim your victory and rewards for all your hard work.

Too many of us still are afraid of success. Now’s not the time. Embrace it and own it!

Time to clean up

And by that I mean, take stock of all the things, people and situations that no longer serve you or memories you are holding onto (anger, hurt, grudges, resentment) and let them go. It’s a time for a fresh start. New beginnings.

We can’t move forward if we are still chained to the past. Each full moon urges us to dump and release in order to move forward in love and allow new things to come to us. It’s time to do that. Let go and move on.

Take some time to honour yourself and heal your heart. Know that you truly are deserving of a life full of peace, joy, love and happiness but you won’t have any of that until you face the fears holding you back from living this life and releasing all that keeps you stuck in anger and hurt.

Hang on, don’t give up just yet

I know you’ve been working hard all year and you may becoming frustrated or ready to throw in the towel. Don’t do that (unless it’s a relationship that you know needs to come to an end). Your hard work will pay off. Trust. You may not see the fruits of your labour yet but just wait. Have faith and release the outcome. Know that good things are on their way to you.

If you’re still reeling from the effects of the summer storms it may be time to go deep within yourself and clear all those negative energies away. Meditate, chakra clearing, epsom salt baths, whatever it takes, do it. Get ready, emotionally and spiritually for all the good coming your way. But remember, it can’t come to you if there’s no room for it.

And last but not least, don’t forget the Full Moon Ritual and

The Full Moon Water!

It’s Ok to Not Be Happy All the Time

Permanent happiness doesn’t exist. Do you ever just run into someone somewhere and they just always seem to be happy? And then you think “wow Sally is always just so happy”. She’s not.Trust me. Maybe when she’s out in public she is, but trust me, behind closed doors, she’s not. Not always.

I’m probably one of the happiest people you will ever meet. Despite the ridiculous upbringing I had and all the adversities in my life, I’m usually pretty darn happy.

You could say I’ve been through some terrible stuff Whatever. We all have stories. Some break us, some make us. Mine made me the warrior I am today and I’m awfully proud of the person I’ve become because of my past.

Anyway, that’s not what this piece is about.

I’m a happy person!!

So being a personal development blogger, my one main goal is for everyone to be happy and live a life they deserve, one of crazy ridiculous joy. When we are happy, we can bring cheer to others and then make the world a beautiful place. I know, a lofty goal. I have high hopes.

You know I’m a Facebook page owner (you should really check out my page, it’s super cool) and I share inspirational posters all.damn.day. I find them, read them, create them, share them, live them, breathe them, every day all day. That’s what I do. I know, fun life, right?!

So you would think that since I’m surrounded by all this motivation, cheer and inspiration, I’d be happy 24/7. Nope, not even close.

To think we can be happy all the time is ridiculous. You can’t. No one can. If anyone tells you they are happy all the time they’re lying.

I know when to stay home!

When I go out into town, I’m usually smiling. I love this town and the people. I mean, I pretty much live in paradise, how can you not smile so much? One day a friend said to me “I think you’re phony, you can’t be happy all the time”. I had to laugh. (I love my friends here, they’re so honest.)

I explained to him I’m not  all the time but when I’m out I am. If I’m miserable or cranky I stay away from people. If I’m sad I do one of two things (or sometimes both) 1) I stay home and cry all day  or 2) I drive down to the lake and sit by myself and process the crap that’s going on in my head (and cry some more).

No, I’m not happy all the time. None of us. We are ‘gifted’ with many other emotions. Anger, hurt, sadness, grumpiness, frustration and a few others. It’s important to embrace all those emotions, learn from them, deal with them and move on.

“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” Jonathan Safran Foer

Happiness is a choice, you choose to be I get that. We don’t willingly choose to be angry or frustrated or hurt. Stuff just happens and our first reaction can be any one of those. When something bad happens you don’t automatically react with happiness. Let’s get real here.

However, you can certainly turn a negative into a positive and then carry on the rest of your day in joy. Yup. You sure can. But to tell someone you are happy all the time? Sorry. I don’t buy it. Stop pretending you have your life together and it’s perfect.

It’s a lie.

What do you think that pretending to be happy 24/7 is going to do for you? Do you think people will respect and admire you more? Do you want people to secretly envy you because of this facade you keep displaying? Do you think people will want to be like you because it appears your life is so perfect?

Newsflash for you. None of that will happen. We can see right through you. Mm hmm. You’re not only lying to us but you’re lying to yourself. You’re pretending to be someone and something you’re not.

Stop doing that. Just be real. It’s ok to not be ok all the time.

We’d like you even more if you fessed up 😝

Peace and Love
