"Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has abeen sent as a guide from beyond." -Rumi

It’s a full moon tonight!

How appropriate that this week’s blog falls on a full moon and that this month’s joy habit is gratitude!

If you’ve been a regular reader of my weekly blogs and monthly newsletter (not subscribed yet?Sign-up here),  you know that I do my own monthly moon ceremonies – at new moon and at full moon.

Since the full moon is the time of release when you let go so that you can let in all the things you desire, I view gratitude as a form of release.

This is what I mean.

You see, everything that happens in your life is because of the vibration you’re putting out into the world.  You attract what you are thinking about and especially how you’re feeling about it.  That’s where you emit your vibration and like attracts like.  That’s how it works.

So full moon is a great time to release the things you’ve attracted that you no longer wish to experience.  People, things, patterns of thought, etc., etc.  But do it with gratitude.

For as Rumi said in the opening quote for this post, “Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”   And I would expand that to include “whatever” comes has been sent as a guide.

It’s about being grateful for the insight, the understanding, and the growth.  Which I believe is what we’ve all come here to experience.

So light a candle tonight, burn some incense if you want, take time to reflect and release.  And if you are daring, step outside and howl at the moon to release all that no longer serves you while expressing gratitude for the lessons learned!

Love from your Joy Mama!
