Full Moon Ceremony: 5th July 2020
How is your journey going? Ready for some "me time"? I hope you are, because we are ready to celebrate the July's full moon known as the Buck Moon or Thunder Moon. We also have a lunar eclipse, and we still have Mercury in Retrograde until the 12th. So plenty of fun for all.
The level of manifestation since last full moon ceremony it has been quite spectacular in my world. Nearly to the point of being uncomfortably amazing. And most of these manifestations gathered around the last new moon. From getting the extra days off I needed this month to wrap up the transmutation of The Haven, to get country temporary mobility in my day job or to change the name of my job title away from "guru". These are just "some" realities I really wanted or needed to have in my life for personal reasons but their implementation affects a lot of people and that's the reason we always focus our manifestation "for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached". The last one do (about not being a "guru" any more) it's a freak manifestation.
Back in March/April I was going through some challenges with very low vibrations which required a lot of energy to shift. To step out of getting sucked into someone else's drama or go into war mode I had to refrain my priorities and my thinking process to channel my emotions in the right direction (the best one for me). So I took a couple of days off to gather distance and perspective from a higher view point. Basically, stepping out of a toxic environment to detox, gather strength and then be able to go into a "battle" of love and detachment = "not my circus not my monkeys" as the polish proverb says ("nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy").
So to train and keep myself in check I wrote a small list of statements or affirmations that I had next to my computer, so I could read it every day. First one in the list was: "I'm a Dakini not a Guru", as a reminder of my higher purpose. So every day I would read my list from top to bottom like a little mantra. Not towards others but towards myself. But in that process a freak occurrence happened and is that 3 months later I was told that my day job title would not be "guru" any more. The reason why I'm sharing this with you is that to create magick you first need to see it first. And that's an art in itself. And takes time, patience, observation and self reflection. Is not a quick fix, or something you can do in a rush and the reason why our "me time" and moon ceremonies are so important. They keep us in check and keep our vibration high.
So, time for the next story...
I need music nearly as much as I need food to survive. And a week without new songs is a week without flow. Last week I came across a beautiful song from Cat Power called "3, 6, 9". I shared it with a friend who then asked me about the meaning of the lyrics. Read the words few times and it was more clear to me that it was about an abusive relationship but the "3, 6, 9" made no sense. Elora being Elora decided to investigate with Mr Google to see if there was any meaning for this "3, 6, 9" malarkey. What I wasn't expecting was a to find a quote from Nicola Tesla:
"If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe"
– Nikola Tesla
This is a very interesting article and an extract from a telegram from July 11th 1935: Why did Tesla say that 3,6,9 was the key to the universe?
In Magick, we always use the power on 3 to make a spell or from the perspective of NLP we would repeat a statement 3 times. Even in Reiki you will repeat a symbol in multiples of 3's. In the Christian religion the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus "threefold") holds that God is one God, but manifests in 3 elements: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
In Hinduism, the Trimūrti (/trɪˈmʊərti/; Sanskrit: त्रिमूर्ति trimūrti, "three forms") is the triple deity of supreme divinity that represent the functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction (Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer). Personally I prefer this interpretation of the mystery of existence but it is not the only one as you can see.
In a more mathematical or scientific way, the 3,6,9 represents energy/field/consciousness, which equates in to electricity/magnetism/consciousness.
You can find a lot of stuff online about the "3,6,9 manifestation" so invite you to explore on your terms if this is something that resonates with you. But I recommend these two articles in Quora if you are interested in the mathematical and numerology meaning of these numbers:
Some of you know that I use a personal type of drawing as a spiritual practice. Started in my early teens as a way to switch off from listening to my teachers but took me years to be able to keep up and draw larger areas but also to understand what was all about. My drawings are a way to weave energy at a vibration, creating the fabric of the Universe. And it follows some universal rules that help us raise our consciousness and can be an act of creation, destruction and/or transmutation.
It has been a challenge to be able to move my drawings into a digital format and I won't bore you with the technicalities of the process but let's say that it has taken years to find a reasonable solution. 24th (2+4=6) of June (Saint John's Day) I heard the song "3,6,9" while I was researching to get a graphic tablet that I could use (as a non-graphic designer) to do my drawings. I manage to get the last tablet in the store at 6 minutes to 6pm and 3 days later I was doing my first digital drawing with this tablet that cost me 369EUR. 9 days later will be the 6th of July. The day I thought we were doing our moon ceremony for some reason.
So much fun, isn't it?
So, let's bring all this back into our practice. With the lunar eclipse we will gather more momentum once the eclipse is over. Personally, I will suggest splitting the ceremony in two days: one today (5th of July) and the next one tomorrow (6th of July). But do whatever feels right for you.
But here is my suggestion:
- 5th July: Pre Ceremony + Ceremony > Creation
- 6th July: Fueling our Goal with a high vibration > Offering
This Full Moon is all about closing the chapter. She is ready to move on from all the challenges in the last month. If you are closing chapters, she is ready to help you close the door while you learn from your past and don't repeat the same pattern. Is time to let go.
And for this Full Moon we are going to do something completely different that you can also share and create with friends an family now that covid restructions are a bit more relaxed. We are going to create a special mandala and offered to the wind. No fire this time, but remember that wind fuels the fire and we are still working with a male energy element.
"A Kolam is a symbol of invitation. Traditionally kolams were created using flour to invite small creatures such as birds to eat it, thus welcoming other beings into one's home and everyday life. A daily tribute to harmonious co-existence. The Kolams are symbols for prosperity and wealth, warding off evil spirits who can not enter the complex geometric designs."

You can use a geometric design, or not and use other edible elements like seeds fruit, etc... but I'm going to ask you for one simple rule: introduce the 3,6,9 into it and use your imagination. No rules. Just go with it and invite your loved ones.
You can do this in a plate, slate, tray and when you are ready offered to the wind to bring it were is necessary and to nurture any create that might need it.
We are going to leave this offering for 3 days outdoors or until is all gone. Can be as big or as small as you want but have: 3, 6 and 9 identical elements. If this is too complex for your setting have 3 grains of rice, 6 lentils, 9 raisens.... whatever you have is handy. If food is a no no for whatever reason use sand and pebbles. Just keep the sequence and or multiples of 3,6,9.
Intention: We are closing chapters. And this offering is a way to let go of attachment, be worried of making mistakes and embracing the futility of life for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached. You can incorporate de usual Pre Ceremony but you can just have fun playing.
Suggestion: if you are going to work alone and with an affirmation like "I accept abundance in my life" I would suggest you repeat it like a mantra while you create your Kolam. 3 times with each element you add to it. And you'll end up the process repeating 3 times:
“For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached”
Note: We will build the Kolam today and put outside tomorrow 6th of July.
We are going to continue working with the 3,6,9 in our next ceremony and maybe a bit longer than that. I haven't been told yet what's the story with this. And I hope you enjoy it and that are happy to bring a new element to your practice: The Power of Three.
Be awesome, embrace all that you are and thanks for taking part in this Ceremony.
Love you all,

PS: I’ll be putting your names down in my list to connect us all and use the channel to increase the energy of transmutation. This is not a shopping list: I need a new car, or my boyfriend is an asshole make him nice, or my boss is a bitch just turn her into a teddy bear… no my dears… that’s not how it works! Hahahaha but seriously we are not here to do dark magick, we don’t ask for others only for us and within us. But just in case, I bound the circle for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
If any of you don’t want their name to be added to my list, just shout! Text me, call me, let me know please. Your individuality and empowerment will always be honoured and respected. Always :)
