Sound Magic: Sound Bath for the Full Moon in Capricorn July 16th, 2019 

Suggested Tools

  • Crystal: Garnet, particularly Grossular Garnet if you have it
  • Herbs or Essential Oil: Lemongrass
  • Incense: Frankincense and Styrax, particularly Royal Hojari Frankincense

Welcome to our first sound bath meditation! A sound bath, as the name implies, washes the participant in a sea of tones and harmonics used to enhance relaxation and release stress, thus welcoming the benefits that come with reducing these mental barriers. Research has shown that sound waves can decrease anxiety, improve sleep, elevate the mood, and lower blood pressure for the physical body.

You will want to start by preparing a space most comfortable to you by lighting your incense. If you have chosen to use herbs this is a great time to ignite some of them using a cauldron, dish, or charcoal incense burner. If you have chosen essential oils, dab some on your wrists and neck, but be sure they are safe to put directly onto the skin. You can choose to hold the crystal in your hands, place it upon your body, or have it in the space with you. Anything that you feel most comfortable doing is the goal. 

Once your space is readied, sit or lay down and begin the sound bath. In this process you want to try to empty out the mind and allow yourself to be enveloped by the tones and transported outward from your day-to-day mindset. Sometimes it is best to visualize color fields or shapes you associate with these tones to better stamp out mental chatter and to deepen your moment in meditation. Another common technique is to practice breathing techniques, such as inhaling while envisioning violet or white light radiating from the top of your head throughout your body, and exhaling while envisioning your stress and worries dissipating.

Did you know that the number one cause of human suffering is desire for something other than all that we have in the present moment? Welp, the anecdote to this distress is GRATITUDE, which so happen to be our theme for November 💕✨ When we stop our mind from spinning into the past and future, and instead carefully catalog all the blessings we have right at this very moment, we see that we are already the blooming rose we may be wishing for 🌹

Sun Sign Patterns: Significance in the Stars
Sun Sign Patterns: Significance in the Stars

November 12, 2020 0 Comments

Most beginners to astrology are familiar with their own sun signs and traits, and have awareness that signs of like elements are compatible (Water with Water, Earth with Earth, etc). But what about the relationship between other signs? In her comprehensive book Love Signs: A New Approach to the Human Heart, leading astrological authority Linda Goodman examines the nature of a relationship and it's potential for success by organizing the possible pairings based upon their sun signs position on the Karmic Wheel of Life (pictured above) into what she terms "Sun Sign Patterns". Simply put, Sun Sign Patterns express the number of houses away two signs are from each other.
