New Moon in Leo 08/14/15: Love, Passion, Creativity

New Moon July 2015New Moons mark the beginning of the 29 1/2 day moon cycle which lasts until the Full Moon. New Moons give us a fresh start. They give us the opportunity to set intentions, plant seeds for growth and expansion and are a time to gently increase our awareness.

A New Moon is when there is no light on the moon, but is the beginning of increasing light. As the moon’s light grows and expands we are slowly able to see (and heal if we so choose) those areas which were void of light within ourselves.

New Moons marking new beginnings allowing us to set or strengthen our intentions and re-dedicate ourselves to our soul’s purpose. We can take a breath, and decide once again to be who we are, shine our light and set a space for manifesting and making real our deepest desires.

This New Moon in Leo directly relates to our self-expression, passion and creativity. It gives us a chance to look at how we express and receive love. This potent Leo New Moon helps us to focus and renew our energies so we can bring forth our inner “roar”.

This New Moon will give us an opportunity to step up and meet our challenges with courage and conviction. The aspects of Leo are deeply rooted in passion and creativity. As we move into this moon cycle we will be asked to look at how we give and receive love. It is time to own up to the part we played in any drama and bring in the light of joy so we may move forward whole and complete.

This is a time to truly center ourselves and shine from within. It is time to acknowledge and own our desires, passions and creativity in new and deeper ways. It is time to fully embrace and express ourselves from the core of our being; from our heart. It is time to give and receive love. It is time to plant seeds full of grace, joy and our soul’s purpose.

Let us all strengthen or set new intentions and fill our lives with beauty, grace, wisdom, and joy. Let us express ourselves and show the world who we are without fear. Let us allow our passion and creativity to flow. Let us shine brightly from our heart and soul. Happy New Moon!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Do You Really Want to “Settle” for Good Enough?

bubbletree“Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don’t settle for them.”~Mia Hamm

Is good enough REALLY good enough or has accepting good enough created a limit to what you can have? An interesting concept to ponder. If you are feeling stuck or in a place where you don’t feel you are putting your wildest dreams in motion maybe it’s time to shift the dynamic and let go of any thought patterns which, out of habit, lowers your vibration and limits your creations!

In a conversation with a friend she was telling me about the hopes and dreams she had in the past and how they actually turned out. I loved hearing about her hopes and dreams. Her eyes sparkled as she described the dream but then the sparkle dimmed as she sighed and described how it actually turned out. Let’s just say several of her life long dreams didn’t turn out the way she wanted them to. She kept saying everything “turned out ok” and was “‘good enough” even though she didn’t get what she really wanted.

“The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.”~Maureen Dowd

OK so it’s true we don’t always get exactly what we want. It’s important to have gratitude and celebrate when some of it comes our way but the danger lies in continuing to settle. What happened to my friend after so many disappointments is she stopped dreaming BIG. She lowered her vibration and did not feel worthy or deserving of anything more. At some level she decided things would NEVER turn out the way she wanted them to so at some point she stopped putting into the universe exactly what she wanted.

“Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. Every human being has the potential for greatness.”~Bo Bennett

Each and every one of us has the potential for greatness but if you don’t see it, imagine it, dream it and raise your having-ness for it, it will never come to pass. Use your victories as a foundation and never give up on those dreams. Even if you’re disappointed and feel like you’ve settled or failed, use it as a learning experience and raise your vibration again.

You deserve to life a FULL life! If you are stuck in a place where everything is always “just ok” or “good enough” take a few moments to explore the pivotal moment in your past when you gave up on your potential. Look within your soul to see if at some point you decided that “it’s always been this way so why bother”.

Have you considered that those moments were more about how much you could have at the time or that it just wasn’t the right time? What if all this time you’ve lowered your vibration and settled for less because you couldn’t have it then and it’s just around the corner now?!

Accept what is, celebrate your victories, lay a foundation and put it out there again! With all you’ve learned you may find you are creating a different and brighter picture. All things happen for a reason in their own time and maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t about settling but it wasn’t the right time! ~Shine Your Light Debbie
