Catching Dreams... Visions... and Sacred Pauses

The first week of July I offered a dream catcher I made to Mother Nature, to catch my dreams and allow my path to become clearer. Since then I have been swirling in dreams and visions... and I see amazing new things on the horizon. I am still unsure how it all will weave together, but I know the Moon has some pretty big plans to spread her wisdom and mysteries through me.

I have noticed this year that I have been more quiet in this space, and in general. I feel a need to stay internal right now, go within while some big currents and shifts move though me. 

I am taking a Sacred Pause this Summer... something I never do! But it is something needed for my body and soul. I have began to feel the onset of burnout.... and I know a lot of it is because I have not established boundaries for myself with social media, computer time, down time.... I feel a major disconnect with my body. I live in my mind and higher chakras a lot and just assume my body will keep up with my light-speed thoughts and ideas. I can't tell you how many times I forget to eat in a day. Maybe that is why I have no energy! I honestly do not think about it. I could get away with that while I was in college, but not anymore.

I am forcing myself to slow down. My goals this Summer are to sleep more. Dream more. Be out in nature more. Cook more meals. Eat more. Spend less. Read more. Yoga more. Connect in person more. I've let technology get the best of me. It is so hard to establish new habits and outlooks, but this Summer has marked some huge transitions for me already. I began my new journey as  a yoga teacher only to injure my shoulders immediately because I didn't listen to my body; another way my body told me to slow down. I am about to release more baggage from my heart with a cord-cutting session, and at the end of July on the Full Blue Moon in Aquarius I will be initiated as a Priestess. I need to allow myself this time to just BE, so whatever spirit decides to move though me can come to the surface so I can listen and respond.

Another amazing thing on the horizon is our oracle deck Spirit De La Lune! Rachael and I just ordered our two samples to play and work with. I felt called to write the book with the cards in my hands so their messages in their purest forms could come through. This Sacred Pause will give me the time needed to dive deep into the mysteries of the Moon, these images and moondalas. This Moon oracle has been in my heart for years and to see it come to life has been such an amazing, emotional, joyful experience. We have so much in store for these decks, we cannot wait to share them with you!

Moondaughter is radically shifting into something deeper, and bigger than what I had ever imagined. She is in the cauldron melting and transforming with Spirit. All I can do is brew in this moment... enjoy the process... the unfolding... and allow this deeper magic to settle into my skin. 

Don't be afraid to take your own Sacred Pause and allow your dreams to fly on the wind. You never know what will call you forth deeper into your spirit and path.

And so it is.


 Blessed be,

Marissa Moondaughter

Full Moon Vibes

Yesterday's Full Moon marked a new chapter for me. The timing of everything is so amazing, I feel so guided on my path. 

For over a year and a half, my moon-time ALWAYS fell on the day of the Full Moon. And every Full Moon I was completely drained with no energy to do absolutely anything. My Full moon's felt so wasted, I couldn't even do a guided meditation without falling asleep for hours afterward. Maybe I could have learned something through that time... maybe some deep Moon medicine wanted to work through me, but I was too closed off and bitter to notice or be aware. 

The past 3 moon cycles my energy has shifted... starting with the eclipses, I began to get my moon the day before the Full Moon, and that was enough for my body to recover and have energy on the Full Moon. Since then, my moon-time is almost a week before the Full Moon now and I can enjoy myself. My body is not as drained on my period as it was before, and yesterday's Full Moon was my first Full Moon Circle at my yoga studio, Unfold Yoga. I was so nervous about the Full Moon circles... I wanted to have energy, I wanted to hold space for others to celebrate the Moon with me.

And it was a success! I had energy! We shared our experience about moon charting ( my Lunar Flow e-course teaches this type of charting), I then lead them through a Drawing Down the Moon Meditation, and then we crafted Moon journals listened to music, ate snacks and connected. It felt so fulfilling. This is my moon journal thus far.... I know it will evolve.

When I came home I was exhausted in a content way. My bed called to me, I read for a little bit and drifted off into a deep sleep. I woke up so well rested today, I didn't even wake up when Jimmy came in late from work last night. 

June is also the month of Moondaughter's anniversary. 3 years ago I began a blog about the Moon. And everything is shifting still. My Magical program is going to be evolving and changing, but I can't say how or when yet. I am currently feeling into this energy and remaining open to spirit and the inspirations that come to me. 

I am having a sale in my Etsy shop using the code FULLMOON for 30% all my ecourses. this Full moon has been amazing. I feel so grateful.


 LUNAR BLESSINGS,

Crystal Power and Giveaway Winner

These are a few pictures from my photo shoot with Katelyn a couple weeks back. Oh how I wished we lived closer! I miss her so much! It feels so good to know I have kindred sisters out there even if they live states apart. I'll take our deep texting convos about Charmed episodes any day! I love you Katelyn! I can't wait to show you all the rest of the pictures when they are ready. It was such a magical day romping in nature, finding vines to get tangled into, climbing up steep hillsides in sandals to capture the last rays of the sun. Constantly laughing and giggling like young maidens. Sigh.

In the pictures I am holding my very special Smoky Quartz generator that I got in Sedona.  As much as I love Moonstone, Smoky will always have a special place in my heart. Whenever I hold a Smoky Quartz, I just feel like I return to myself. I remember the deeper, wiser me if that makes sense. Smoky completely shifts my aura. Do any crystals do that for you?

The power of crystals lie deep in the heart of Mother Earth. To hold them, to carry them, to use them for healing and the highest good is to honor Gaia. It is sacred work. I believe it also heals our connection with Nature. The first time I went to Sedona and purchased my first few crystals I had no idea what laid before me. Each crystal I have collected since reminds me of a time elsewhere, either in a past life or different dimension, I am not sure. I just know I always want to feel this connection to the crystal realm. I am honored to share their stories and wisdom with others.

The next Moon cycle, Planting Moon,  is coming up... On the new moon April 18th I will be guiding my first live workshop: Crystal Energy at Unfold Yoga. This is such a dream come true for me. And this is only the beginning! If you are in Southern California, I would love for you to gather with us! Bring your crystals, learn about their energy, and connect to their healing power. You can sign up over here. 


CRYSTAL POWER BLESSINGS,

Moments: Re-calibrating and Aligned

I have been quiet.

I have been floating.

I have been re-calibrating.

January was a HUGE month for me. So many completions, new experiences, so much melding of my mind, body, and soul.

So many new beginnings and pathways are opening. 

We celebrated our yoga graduation at Hsi Lai Temple, the largest Buddhist temple in North America. The grounds are so beautiful and the altar room is magnificent. We had some yummy vegetarian food and just enjoyed our time together. 

A week later a group of us participated in Sweat lodge ceremony. Lodge means "the womb," so we went back into the womb of Gaia, released our prayers into the universe, and rebirthed. I had the honor of sharing this experience with my beloved and I feel our bond has deepened since this experience. It was intense, beautiful, and I learned a whole new perspective of surrender.

Our facilitator led us through a journey towards the end of the ceremony and the Fox came to me in my journey and I was given an aquamarine crystal. These codes are still embedding in me, but I know deep wisdom is brewing and will soon bubble and overflow.

I also started teacher shadowing to complete my yoga hours. It is so inspiring to see my yoga teachers in their element guiding yogi's, connecting with their truth, and helping others. It is so beautiful! My new ritual is to take a bath after shadowing and keep absorbing the experience.

Absorbing is definitely a theme for me right now. I am absorbing healing, positivity, surrounded by powerful goddesses, and loving connections. I am so extremely grateful!

For the weekend of Imbolc, the last weekend of January, I went to a Goddess retreat in Sedona and it was so amazing.I circled in sacred sisterhood, we hiked, ate yummy yummy food, talked about our birth stories and honored Brighid. January has sparked something in me. 

I feel so empowered, so grateful, so on track. I just need to get my tush organized!

I am ready for the rest of 2015. 

Thank you, January. 

ps. I have a sale in my Etsy shop right now! Use the code: LOVERS for 20% off until 2/15!


Lunar and Crystal Blessings,
