Maya speaks of a "new world order (or disorder) emerging" with the November Full Moon. Which shall it be? This is a choice each of us can still make, by putting our lives and beings in divine order, and visualizing the same for the entire planet.
The current New Moon cyclewhich this Full Moon culminatesoffered a chance for a new cycle of release of whatever might obstruct our healing. Now is a time to connect our faith in the healing power of a Higher Order, as we ground our ability to release those attitudes, behaviors and activities which do not match that standard.
Part I. Prepare your space.
Begin your Full Moon prayers by lighting a candle. Green and gold suit the season, and they also remind you of the life and opulence of a healthy planet.
For a seasonal purification with the elements, besides the candle, have salt for earth, rain or spring water, or a bit of snow, and incense or a bit of smoldering wood, especially pine or juniper. Walk around your prayer area in a clockwise direction with your candle, as you say, "I purify this space with light." In your minds eye, see the light of the candle flame growing larger and larger, until it fills the space, which will appear to glow intensely. You may then use some rain or spring water, or melted snow, and walk around your space, sprinkling a bit as you say, "I purify this space with water." On the next round, sprinkle salt and say, "I purify this space with earth." Finally, carry your smoking incense or wood around your space, announcing, "I purify this space with air."
Part II. Words to synchronize with the new world in divine order.
Open your mind to personal and world order, with the following decrees. Start with the affirmation for yourself, then continue with a prayer for the world. Say each one at least five times, slowly and with feeling. After saying each prayer, take a few moments in the silence to imagine your life in divine order, filled with wellness and abundance. After the affirmation for the world, close your eyes and see and feel the world in Divine Order, filled with peace and liberty for all.
Prayer of the Divine Organizer
The Divine Organizer is aware of each one of my real priorities. She coordinates the activities and people that are key for me. She opens up my time for what I really need to do, and stretches it so that it is enough. She provides the discernment, the funds, the independent will for right and timely action, and whatever else I need to carry out my true priorities on this day. My life, my body and my being are in divine order.
Prayer of Divine Order for the World
The Divine Organizer is aware of the planets true priorities. She is guiding, inspiring, mobilizing, and coordinating all those who can contribute to the peace, prosperity and harmony for all beings. She provides the discernment, the information, the funds, the independent will towards right and timely action, the protection, the faith and whatever else they need to promote the divine agenda for planet Earth. She coordinates the climatic, the geographic, and all ecological and human events and encounters to insure the complete good of all inhabitants. Earths situation, present and future is in Divine Order.
Part III. Consolidating release to allow Divine Order manifest.
Each activity you sustain means a commitment of energy to something. In order to assist divine order as it moves through your awareness and circle of influence, answer the following question in writing:
Which of my current activities or attitudes do not express my true self and the divine priorities in my life?
Sample habits from our prayer ministry included:
Buying into the common beliefs that there are other powers greater than Spirit, and letting such viewpoints affect how I feel about certain, vital areas of my life.
Failing to pray and visualize for the planet daily.
Fear of asking for the help I need around the house in order to write daily.
Fear of my husband getting upset if I ask for help with the children in order to exercisethat he may think this is selfish.
Getting really upset and desperate when my partner doesn't follow through with our agreements.
Lack of organization to finish preparing my visualization materials.
Lack of direction in the Prayer Ministry, so that the time doesn't get lost in talkingletting the lack of focus of talkative members take over and diminish focus on prayer.
Apathy, lack of organization, procrastination, feeling like Im selfish if I work on things for me.
If you did the prayerful exercise suggested for the last New Moon (Samhain New Moon, November 4), this Eclipse Full Moon now is a wonderful time to take a look at your list of what you need to release in order to empower the healer within. Compare what came up for you now, at the Full Moon, and check your progress.
Part V. List whatever measures you still need to take towards your goals of habit release.
Some examples for our group included:
Visualize the letters of recommendation I need as though they already were together, and get in touch with at least one person per week that I need them from.
Organize my week before hand, allowing for times for writing.
Ask the other members of the Ministry for help on focusing on prayer, and insist whenever they start taking the conversation in another direction.
Mentally release guilt for asking for and organizing whatever help I need to take care of myself and get my writing done.
Create new prayers to help me sustain the faith I feel during my prayer time throughout the day, despite the influence of the world around me.
Cover all my important activities in the morning.
Visualize sharing with more people who are actively working to stay centered in faith and planetary service, and support and inspire me to do the same.
Concentrate more completely during my prayer time so that I utilize each minute thus spent.
Part IV. Decree to release from any blocks to your divine direction.
I release any guilt about doing whatever I need to complete those most important goals in my life. Christ in me feels no embarrassment, remorse or fear about insisting on accomplishing my higher purpose. I am divinely authorized to pursue my vision, and all apparent barriers melt before the voice and power of the Spirit that I am, and that precedes me in all my ways and propositions.
Part V. Follow up.
Each day, for at least 28 days, resort to the powerful energy of release this Moon Cycle offers, by using your personal and planetary prayers for order during 10 minutes or so, then reading your lists of what you are releasing, and finally doing the prayer to release blocks from your divine direction.
