February 2019 Full Moon Money Invitation:
Inner Child Healing
As we learned during the new moon of this month, February is a time of healing and cleansing. The new moon’s invitation was for us to be disciplined in our efforts of clearing out elements of our life that no longer serve us. In doing so, we are now able to heighten the awareness of past wounds that need healing.
I didn’t realize at the beginning of the month, that the new moon exercise would lead to this invitation of further healing. Which is another lesson for me, and perhaps for you too, that cleansing our palette does not mean that the next course will be our favorite. While every course is tastefully designed for us to elevate to the next phase of our life, it may include sharp surprising situations that cause us to wake up.
When these situations arise, your natural response may be anger, frustration, irritation. And you will be absolutely justified in having that response.
It could be a vendor disrespecting your time, a stranger calling you out of your name, a potential client or collaborator not recognizing your magic…
Go ahead and allow yourself to feel into your immediate response. But, do not indulge in this feeling.
For this is the full moon’s invitation - to use these feelings to help you become aware of past wounds that need healing. These past wounds have been buried in your subconscious and are crying out for acknowledgment. By shining a light on these wounds, you will transform the damaged areas of your money aura into radiant beams of light that will crack you open for new, abundant opportunities.
For many of us, these wounds will be our inner child asking for love. Regardless of how amazing anyone’s childhood was, we all endure trauma that continues to follow us into our adulthood until we address it. Ignoring these wounds is causing you to behave in ways that block your radiance, and abundant opportunities.
As Dr. Beckwith shares in his interview with Oprah, you can not have, what you are not willing to become vibrationally. If you do get it, you will lose it.
If you continue to ignore your inner child, here are some examples of behaviors you may continue to do that will block opportunities from you. Warning: these examples may trigger you. If you immediately become defensive as you read these, it may be because your inner-child has been triggered.
Showing up late to meetings. This may be a tantrum-esque response to your dislike of being told what to do.
Not going above and beyond for clients. Perhaps you felt taken advantage of in the past, or not recognized for the gifts you brought to the table, therefore your response is to do the bare minimum. But, the effort of going the extra mile is always rewarded either monetarily or in experience or both. And by not going above and beyond, you are blocking yourself from future rewards.
Confusing a fierce attitude with a stank-ass attitude. There will be times that call for you to stand up for yourself and be direct. However, this does not need to be the default response and there is a distinction between being fierce and being an asshole.
Projecting your baggage onto someone else. When you are critical or judgmental of another woman’s choices, it is likely because she is reflecting an area of your life where you would like to shine, but are not allowing yourself to do so.
Discrediting or downplaying someone else’s achievements. This is an insidious behavior because it can be disguised as making a sound business decision. However, when you discredit or downplay someone else, it is usually because you are insecure in your career and their success feels threatening to you. Blocking someone else’s blessings will come back to harm you.
The above are just a few examples to explore. It is up to you to be honest with yourself about which ones relate to you, and to uncover others that are not listed here.
All of these behaviors are a result of wounds, past hurts, feelings of resentment, abandonment, and so on that need to be addressed. This full moon’s exercise is asking us to use our feelings of anger, irritation, frustration to guide us to these wounds that need healing.
Here is this full moon’s exercise to help you begin the process of healing your inner child:
Begin with awareness. Write down recent events, especially money or business related, that have caused feelings of anger, frustration and irritation. Do not analyze them, yet.
Cleanse the body. Complete a sweaty workout. This can be a HIIT workout, a cardio-dance class. I prefer taking a 90-minute bikram yoga class. Working out allows you to tap into your body’s intelligence and sweat out surface level toxins.
Cleanse the skin. Give yourself an at-home facial and body scrub. As the largest organ, your skin holds onto physical and emotional toxic baggage.
Cleanse the gut. Your gut = your intuition. Your intuition will help you connect with your inner child and any buried subconscious memories. Eat a light meal with bone broth or fermented foods - such as sauerkraut or kimchi - to help cleanse your insides.
Prepare the mind. Turn on meditation music to help you get in a relaxed, aware state that is open to transformation.
Speak to your inner child. Review the list you wrote down in step #1. As you go through each event, pause and ask yourself, “When did I first experience this feeling?” You may see an image appear in your mind’s eye or you may need to draw it out on a sheet of paper. Whatever comes up for you, this is your inner child that was not given the love she needed when she first experienced this trauma. Ask her what she needs to feel loved and offer that to her.
Moving forward. Ask your inner child what you need to do to resolve the current events in order to transmute these feelings of anger, irritation, frustration into radiant bliss.
Tonight’s full moon is not an easy one. It is not easy to look yourself in the mirror and become aware of sabotaging behaviors. But, in doing so, you will heal past wounds and open yourself up to a blissful world of luxury that is currently beyond your wildest imaginations.
Sending you lots of love. I can’t wait to witness the money magic coming to you.
