Last night was the first full moon of 2009 and I went with my yoga class to the other (Eastern most) side of the Island to see the moon rise and meditate with some of the pople from my yoga philosophy class.
2009 is going to be a special year. The year carries the master number 11 which condenses to a 2 year. The last time we had the influence of a 11 year was in 1910. Last night was a particularly powerful night because it was 1.11.09 (3 more 1's). Also 11 people showed up for our full moon meditation.
Apparently in numerology the number 11 is a Master Number – ‘Master’ meaning it is of intense/high vibrational frequency and works within the etherical, magical and transcendental realms of creation. Master numbers possess great potential for learning and growth, and can bring major transformations in life. Right on, this is definitely what I need for 2009.
The number 11 is the most intuitive number and is a clear channel to the subconscious. It is the number of leadership, personal power and spiritual truths. The number 1 by itself represents leadership, initiative and new beginnings… thus two number 1’s together opens a gateway of potential far greater than the sum of its parts.
The gateway of the Master Number 11, is the freedom of choice. The freedom to choose a path of truth, authenticity & Love, or conversely to recoil in fear, pain and stagnation. This is nice for me because on of my themes for 2009 is letting go of past romantic hurts so that I can be open to new relationships (perhaps a healthy one!).
So when we arrived it was a cloudy night. We set up and began to meditate in a circle. We thought of the things we wanted to say goodbye to from 2009 - negatives in our lives. Selene's ex husband played drums and we danced to balance ourselves and connect to the earth. We then lit Copal incense as an offering in recognition of life's pain so far the focus was - we value what we've learned from suffering but have now learned enough. We moved the Copal around our bodies to cleans out auras and as we did this the most amazing red full moon came out of the clouds:
We then each said what we desired for ourselves for 2009 and what we desired for the group. By this time the moon was out in her full glory - sending a great silver path accorss the ocean to where we sat on the beach. More dancing, then we all stood in the waves, feeling the power of the moon; imagining her standing above us and her silver energy surrounding us like armour which would protect us in 2009. The wind was whistling through my ears and hair and the silvery light of the moon was very powerful. I wished for the things I wanted in 2009, and offered those wishes to the moon. There was much heart felt hugging. I like a good hug:)
Mam and dad (and Barbara B) you will be pleased to know that we also felt guardian angels placing their hands on our heads and the power of the holy spirit flowing from the moon's energy. Perhaps I'm a bit of an old hippy but I loved my full moon meditation experience.
