This Christmas is the first time since 1977 that we will be experiencing a Full Moon. The particular moon we will be working with is known as the Cold Moon (Long Night Moon), and through our studies its spiritual significance presents a powerful moment in time – where we must face our true reflection.
According to Refinery 29:
“These feelings may be stronger than usual this year, as the maternal and familial influence of the full moon may intensify your desire to be around loved ones for the holidays. Other spiritual effects of the full moon (clarity of mind and heart, heightened psychic awareness, a greater capacity for healing) can be beneficial for your end-of-year reflections, and even help you set intentions for 2016. With this in mind, even your Christmas well-wishes can be imbued with the power of the full moon now.”
View this time as a chance to take a peek in your own “magic mirror” and ask yourself what it is you are reflecting into your reality. Are reflecting who you really are, or who you think you should be? Are you reflecting love, or lack? Are you reflecting your highest hopes, or are you deepening your darkness? If you find your “reflection” brings about feelings of fear or anxiety, do not run from the dark that may present itself – reconcile it with light, and give love to where you may feel lack. The spiritual “veil” is very thin during this period, and with heightened intuition – it may be overwhelming at times. However, the same ability to feel all energies, including the dense ones, can also be used to bathe in the light – so choose up, not down. Trust your instincts, and let love fuel the power of what you will.
It is absolutely imperative that you vibrate at the highest level as this moon cycle comes and passes, and our best advice is to take some time meditate with this powerful incantation, which allow light to be ever present, so you may reflect your highest self, and spread that light into our world.
From Lucis Trust, “This Invocation is essentially a prayer, synthesizing the highest desire, aspiration, and spiritual demand of the very soul of humanity itself. It must be used in that way”:
The Great Invocation
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth
With love, light and blessings – we wish you all a very happy holiday, and may all of your highest hopes and deepest dreams come to fruition during this sweet ’16.
