I cannot believe June is upon us already! 2013 has been going by so quickly! The New Moon is next Saturday and that is also the day I have chosen for my relaunch of Moondaughter!!
It is so symbolic for me as well. I am moving into a new chapter of my life: I have finally laid to rest my college days and struggles with what society deems as a "good career." Moondaughter is my passion, teaching and healing with Spirit and loving intention is what I feel called to do! So I am making that leap.
So I wanted you all to know where I see Moondaughter going:
Lunar Healing: I just became a Certified Holistic Life Coach through the Apothecary Circle, and my coaching will involve weaving Lunar Rhythms back into your day to day life.
Moon Ceremony: Creating custom nourishing moon rituals aligned with the phases of the moon.
Crystal Healing: I am in the process of becoming a Certified Crystal Healer (I am waiting for my test results! Eeeeee!) I will be able to help you with our stone allies to realign energy and bring balance back to your life through Crystal grids and custom crystal kits!
Moon Rhythms: An online community of healers, gypsies, and moon children to gather coming in August!
Certified Metaphysical Practitioner: Accredited training to become a cultivator of magic!
I can't wait to share this all with you! It will be a learning experience for me and I am honored for you all to witness this journey :) Of course there will be a big Giveaway for the relaunch over at the new blog! So be sure to enter next Saturday!
Love to you all!
Drinking smoothies, juices, broths, teas, and waters for 10 days is going to be fun. So far, I am really positive and my body is feeling good, so we shall see what it feels like tomorrow. :-p
I've been trying to answer why I felt called to do this fast and there is not one definite answer. I want to try something I've never really attempted to try before because its fun and sparks my inner-warrioress. The word Clarity came to mind, so I am wondering how this word will weave through this fast. I have also been pretty unhealthy as of late and not taking care of my body as I should, so I hope this fast will be a reset button.
But most of all I want to prove to myself I can follow through with this. Show up for myself and the others in the group. I tend to start something but then move one fairly quickly, or lose the passion.
It feels like since the day I left home, it has been one transition after the other. I adjusted to a new place, changed majors multiple times, moved in with my love, and now I am ready to end this cycle. These next two weeks will also be concluding my graduate studies. I am leaving early. I am letting this go. I love museums and will keep visiting them, but I realize this path is no longer for me. I am ready to close the door of my college/school days and let this chapter rest. When I was growing up, my goal was to get out of my hometown and go to school. And that is what I did. I have two Bachelor degrees in Theater and Anthropology and I am proud to have earned them. However, I started letting the 'shoulds' and fears of being different hold me back from my true passions, and with student loans looming ahead, I started to use college as a crutch. I am ready to brave this new journey and fly out of the nest. I'm ready to create my own NEST.
This Fast is exactly what I need right now, and it also ends the last day of my classes. Coincidence? I think not. New Beginnings, anyone?
I also just became a Certified Holistic Life Coach, and my heart is bursting with possibilities. I am so excited for Moondaughter and where she is flowing.
So for now, I sip my tulsi/raspberry leaf tea and observe this flow of energy.
I may be more grumpy tomorrow.
Love and Blessings,
New realms are opening for Moondaughter. Crazy, beautiful, magical realms.
As I work with my word for the year: NEST, I am have come to realize my online 'nest' does not fit my vision for where I want Moondaughter to go and grow. I will be moving away from Blogger, Weebly (my website host), and even Etsy.
It's scary and I am nervous. I do not want to lose anyone and I am afraid I will be forgotten- one of my worst fears. However, listening to your intuition and aligning with your soul purpose does include growing pains sometimes.
As my offerings will be changing (profoundly and sacredly), I want a space that can hold everything in one sacred container and is easy to access for everyone-- not too mention a beautiful, cohesive design throughout (my new banner is hinting some new design elements).
So I am relaunching. And of course it needs to be on the New Moon! June 8th will usher in a new chapter for Moondaughter.
I would love for you to witness and join me in this experience.
How? On the New Moon of April 10th I will be hosting a FREE 8 week mini-e-course on Tarot and the Moon. Learn to use the Tarot as a tool for self-transformation working with your Lunar rhythms. Each week focuses on a card related to 1 of the 8 main Lunar phases. Signing up for my newsletter will ensure you of any big updates and helps you to keep in the loop while I move everything over! Please share this photo and my link with your friends, readers, and community!
All you have to do is sign up for my newsletter (you still receive the free e-book too! Not to mention secret sales just for you!):
Also, while I have been writing this post, I just found out Google reader will be retiring! So in a sense it only reaffirms my decision to move. I would also recommend you switch over and follow me on Bloglovin' too! All you have to do is click this button below!
Or follow me on through RSS feed, as both of these platforms will transition over in June :)
SO so so excited! Thank you all so much for your love and support!
Love and Blessings,
I know, I know. I feel like I am a stranger at my own blog now-a-days. I always forget how trying and hectic this season is for me when all I want to do is hibernate. Don't we all?
I missed my first Moon Days post too :( I had my last final that Monday too, but at least school is over for now and I can put more focus on to my blog. I am realizing that planning blog posts should be a priority for each month, so for 2013 that is my goal!
I have been reflecting on this year and what I want for next year. So many opportunities opened up for me and I am so grateful. I have met so many wonderful people, I created my first e-course, I have made more loving decisions, my little shop is budding, and I feel more on track with my soul purpose than ever.
For 2013 I keep hearing the words nest and self-care. I think that is what Spirit wants me to work on and focus in on the next coming months. I need to simplify my home space (and save for an actual place of our own) and take care of me consistently.
I have plans for Moondaughter too :) I am so so so excited to share these when the time is right:
Goddess Workshops: I will be creating Goddess workshops for different Goddesses I have worked with and want to work with more. It will be aligned with the Moon phases and how to work with each Goddess according to the Moon phases; each lesson builds on one another and you will get the full e-book at the end. The lessons will automatically go to your email for 4 weeks at a time, so you can purchase these workshops anytime and use them for any Moon cycle you want! Goddesses I am including so far are:
- Venus/Aphrodite: Attracting love and Self-love Queen
- Baba Yaga; Crone and Shadow work
- Triple Goddess: working with the Maiden, Mother, and Crone
- Artemis: Goddess of Independence
- Brighid: Fiery Goddess of Empowerment
- Maeve: Warrior Goddess of women's cycles
Please let me know what other Goddesses you may like to work with! I am open to all suggestions! Comment or Email me at marissa(dot)moondaughter @ gmail(dot)com
Healing Sessions: I am becoming certified in Crystal Healing and my Reiki Master Level III very soon, so look out for Healing sessions that I will add to the shop this next year. I will offer Reiki only sessions, Crystal/Reiki sessions, and make custom healing kits, I will keep you updated!
And (Fingers Crossed!)...
2014 Lunar Calendar and Workbook: I really want to create this calendar for 2014. It will be based on the Lunar cycles, so it will not look like the normal calendar we typically use. It will include rituals, activities, journal prompts, and a lot more to work through your Lunar year.
I also want to include more giveaways and guest posts, and a new feature or two... A LOT of plans and changes!! It should be an amazing Year!
I hope you all have an amazing holiday! I may still be pretty absent for a while. We will be on the road to Oklahoma for the holidays. We really like roadtrips. So I may not have access to a computer for a little bit.
I love you all and I will see you very soon!
