Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organize everything chaotic and disorganized.

Online Zoom

6-8 pm Free event New Moon In Gemini

Come gather the energy with others to help amplify your manifestation. I will do sine Thetahealing releases for blocks as well as a Thetahealing Meditation and finish.

Don’t forget to Bring your Manifesting diary.

New Moons increase energy. Like a seed in the ground that’s ready to germinate, a new Moon carries the concentrated power of the previous phase along with a natural urge to push that power outward and manifest something.

In the case of a seed, this power culminates in germination, allowing a plant to take hold in the ground and push a shoot up through the darkness as it seeks the light of the Sun. In human terms, new Moons spark the germ of an idea, a glimmer of inspiration – and increase the natural urge to follow those through to manifestation. Notice Your Energy At New Moon It’s helpful to notice how you feel once the new Moon arrives every month. If you track these periods, you’re likely to find you have more drive than in the two weeks before the new Moon. By Astrologer Anne

Participants will then relax while Helena channels songs and sound that support the release of stuck and disharmonious energies, bringing a renewed sense of peace, relaxation and centering.

"Come join us to Awaken a Beautiful New World of Sacred Balance that Serves the Highest Good for ALL Beings! The 1000 Goddesses Gathering is a Wisdom and Compassion Gathering based upon a Tibetan prophecy that states that when 1000 Goddesses or Buddhist Taras gather, the Divine Feminine will rebirth through their combined energies, and the tone of the planet will shift from one of fear to compassion! The purpose of this Gathering is to bring balance between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine back into our Sacred Earth also." *Taken from: www.1000Goddesses.net
