PRAYER SUGGESTIONS FOR THE FULL MOON OF SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11 This Full Moon underscores the message of the New Moon cycle which started on October 27, emphasizing freedom from our limiting conditioning (see meditation below). That the opportunity for freeing our faith potential from the dragon of the collective unconscious is brought to fulfillment with this full moon, is reflected in Mayas predictions for this timewhich point to a special opportunity for "liberation," and the potentializing of the "Woman Within," who is a symbol of "the faith deeply rooted in the soul." She also reminds us of the "courage needed" for such liberation from the conditioning of the commonly accepted field of belief in limited appearances.
Now, then, would be a good time to read or reread the spiritual suggestions for this last New Moon (below), and ask ourselves whether we are willing to follow through with the challenge of overcoming the limiting race beliefs we have bought into until now.
Soul mastery requires a retraction from socially accepted modus operandi that can often expose us to discomfortor even shaming. A simple example of this apparent dilemma, for either the committed metaphysical adept or for the devout Buddhist, could include the criticism brought on from loved ones for her or his conversational practice, such as refraining from participation in criticism of others, maintaining a forgiving attitude in the face of apparent injustice, or resistance to discussion of illness or other problems. On a deeper level, emerging from the level of faith limitation of our parents or other respected models, can feel like a sort of betrayal of them. As anyone who has tried the decrees suggested in this column two weeks ago (or similar negations of erroneous race belief) can testify, the path towards overcoming our limited conditioning confronts us with feelings of loneliness that can be, on a subtle level, quite frightening. Such sensations may contribute to our reluctance to follow through on their daily use until we make our longed for breakthroughs in mind and manifestation.
In our prayer section for this last New Moon, we described a case in which the great early teacher and healer, Emmet Curtis Hopkins, healed an "incurable" disease through affirming her unwillingness to accept the "race error" of belief that matter could limit divine life. The cure began to appear immediately when she tried this approach in her silent treatment of a desperate girl. However, its completion took place over an unspecified period of time, requiring repeated treatments. Most people are attracted to the idea of freeing up a new level of our faith. We may choose to ask ourselves at this Full Moon vortex whether we are willing to follow through in facing our fears and neutralizing them from a spiritual perspective during whatever cycle of time is necessary in order to lay the groundwork required in consciousness if we wish to go beyond mere band-aid prayers and manifest the Miracle Worker Within.
Moon cycles are both real and symbolic life cycles. Those who may have started a prayer cycle as suggested at this last New Moon, and those who havent alike, may apply her metaphor to our prayer life at this time, and renew our disposition to consolidate the cyclical process required to free ourselves into a new level of awareness.
The following decrees are very powerful helpers for those who choose to apply them to moving up and on to a new experience of liberation. Their daily use for 7 minutes or more during 28-40 days will give us a lasting taste of the fruits of freedom that come with certain voluntary limitations or structures, an apparent contradiction which reminds us of another part of Mayas message for this moontime, of "revelation," which "lies beyond dualistic knowledge."
Prayers effect being nonlocal (as Dr. Larry Dossy has eloquently stressed in his wonderful book, Reinventing Medicine) decrees like these can and are bringing miraculous results for individuals and for entire countries. Use them for yourself, those near and dear, or those needy and far away whom you may have perceived as beyond your reach to help. Let us "prayer" in mind that the only limit to the response our affirmations create is our faith; for Spirit there are no small nor large works.
THE DIVINE LIBERATOR IS WITH ME NOW, FREEING ME FROM ANY LIMITATIONS IN MY MIND, BODY, AFFAIRS OR RELATIONSHIPS. NO OPINION OR INFLUENCE OF THE PAST OR PRESENT CAN RESIST THE POWER OF THE DIVINE LIBERATOR TO DELIVER ME TO MY COMPLETE WELL-BEING NOW. I BELEIVE MY FREEDOM AND I RECEIVE MY FREEDOM NOW.
THE DIVINE LIBERATOR IS WITH YOU (HER, THIS COUNTRY, ETC.) NOW, FREEING YOU FROM ANY LIMITATIONS IN MY MIND, BODY, AFFAIRS OR RELATIONSHIPS. NO CONDITION OR INFLUENCE OF THE PAST OR PRESENT CAN PREVENT THE DIVINE LIBERATOR FROM DELIVERING YOU (HER, THEM, ETC.) TO YOUR (HER, THEIR, ETC.) COMPLETE WELL-BEING NOW. YOU ARE FREE AND YOU LIVE YOUR FULL GOOD NOW.
Note: The altar and guide invocation suggestions for this past New Moon still apply at this time. You may consider adding a large basket of squash and/or fruit, or other symbols of plenty to your altar, and include the Angel of Gratitude in your pre-prayer invocations.
OCTOBER 27 NEW MOON MEDITATION
Types of inner work especially favored at this powerful time
Maya´s predictions stress this New Moon vortex (October 22- November 3) as particularly propitious for our "deepest changes of the year," as well as "deep emotional healing, particularly within the family." The Sabian symbol shes shared for the zodiacal degree of this New Moon speaks to the ponderousness of change in social institutions, which express a cultures "particular way of thinking, feeling and acting." All these themes reinforce the celestial message and assistance to focus now on releasing those parts of our early conditioning whose unblocking may make a definitive difference in our existence.
The highly creative power of the mind is becoming increasingly popular and accepted knowledge. The beliefs which we harbor most deeply will tend to play out in our lives and experience sooner or later. To those of us who wish to develop our metaphysical creative capacity, as well the capacity to attract and produce desirable conditions for ourselves and others, overcoming limiting beliefs and transmuting them to the principles of Truth from a spiritual perspective is a powerful key to allowing the Higher Power to act through us in answer to our prayers and visualizations.
Most of our limiting beliefs do not arise individually, but are rather part of what metaphysicians refer to as "the race belief" or mind. As one author has said, in order to receive the miracles we dream of, we must "give the slip to the dragon of the collective unconscious." Neither does the collective minds limiting belief field operate in a entirely amorphous or impersonal manner. Most have us have formed our earliest convictions about the nature of reality in specific contexts. Human authority figures are the voices onto whom we have projected the power to define reality (which in truth belongs only to the Spirit within us), and with it the limits to our own divine rights and possibilities.
Each year, these dates are the time of when the veils between dimensions are pulled backas, in the Western Hemisphere, natural life appears to recede before winters chill, and cultures celebrate this opening in Samhain, Halloween, El Día de los Muertos and All Saints Day. This year, Mayas New Moon invites us to penetrate the reality beyond the dimension of appearances as we reflect, pray and meditate in ways that pull back the veils of those limiting beliefs which each one of us has accepted within the institution of collective psyche, and wear back the rock of apparently immovable obstacles as we resurrect the true life of Spirit within us.
SPECIFIC OPTIONS TO SYNCHRONIZE YOUR INNER WORK AT THIS TIME
Depending on your level of need or motivation, you may choose:
Simply begin a 28-40 day cycle of spoken affirmations for freedom limiting beliefs and opinions, repeating some of the prayers suggested below for 7 minutes or more each day.
Begin today a more extensive self-treatment for liberating the power of your beliefs, including an altar, written and verbal of invocations of angles and guides, as well as prayers like those suggested, say for half and hour or more each morning, reinforced verbally whenever possible throughout the day.
Use of the Piercing Through the Veil of Limiting Conditioning Exercise prepared especially for Daykeeper users (described below), followed by either spoken or written affirmations, the latter to be reinforced daily for 28 to 40 days.
Any combination of the above, bearing in mind that whereas altars and guides can make a difference, what remains indispensable for lasting change is the use of heartfelt affirmationswhether written or notfor 28 consecutive days or more.
PIERCING THROUGH THE VEIL OF
LIMITING CONDITIONING EXERCISE
Symbols of the elements for the OCTOBER 27 moon ceremonies (to add to or create seasonally synchronized altars).
The mid-fall earth element can be present as dried leaves, dried or fresh purple flowers and orange flowers, pumpkins, or a basket with fresh apples or squash.
You can use rain or tap water in an attractive vessel, or wine (red or apple) in a goblet, or harder spirits in a glass.
Timely symbols of firecould be lit in your hearth, with white, orange and/or purple candles.
For the air element, you could choose lavender incense, throw stick cinnamon on the fire or sound a bell or sonorous wind chimes.
Those who wish to call on guides and angels at this time to assist in prayer focusing, may choose to include any of the following:
The Angel of Belief Transformation
The Angel of Liberation
The Angel of Resurrection
The Angel of Independence
Zadquiel(Angel of Transmutation)
Pallas-Athena(Goddess of Spiritual Truth)
Alexa(Goddess of Freedom, from whose image the Statue of Liberty was inspired, also considered the representation of the Divine Mother for the Age of Aquarius.)
Astrea(Powerful Being of White Light who purifies and dissolves dark creations of the astral planeespecially helpful for ceremonies during mid-autumn, when dimensional divisions become more subtle, as well as for the transformational prayers below.)
Kali ( Divine Mother of Consuming Fire.)
Ganesha (God of Wisdom and Eliminator of Obstructions.)
The Christ Mind
If you wish to summon these before beginning your own prayers and meditations, and/or your own angel(s) or guides (or those of a loved one, if you are using these prayers for another), and any other beings "of the high white light alone" (a good phrase for protection when summoning spirits or guides, especially during this season), you may call on them out loud or in writing. You might say or write something like, "I greet you and bless you for your work of divine service and guidance, and request your assistance in freeing my mind from any conditioning which may block the expression of the unlimited power of True Knowledge within me, and focusing of my own prayers."
The following exercise is designed to put the user in touch with the conditioning that limits his or her faith, in order to begin a new cycle of consciousness, with more freedom to open the mind to the Unlimited Grace we all hope for in our decrees, prayers and visualization.
1. Complete the following sentence:
"The reason(s) I cant have a perfect life now is (are) (blank spaces are provided for your convenience should you wish to do this exercise online and print the page on your printer):
Sample answers from our groups use of this exercise included:
"I dont have enough time to do everything I need to and still get enough rest."
"My partners explosive personality keeps me from maintaining the inner poise necessary for answered prayer."
"The toxic shame from my childhood still lingers."
"I still havent eradicated the belief in disease which precedes complete healing."
2. Write the next sentence 3 times, pausing to ponder what really comes up for you, and writing the first thing that comes into your mind:
"Ever since I was born, Ive been provided with the tools to overcome the belief in the necessity or reality of such conditions to limit my well-being."
(Our groups written responses were quite lengthy, which is fine as you can really examine your early conditioning. Some extracts include:)
"I wasnt given any tools, and if I was I didnt see them. The predominant belief of my home was about injustice ("If God existed, life wouldnt be so unfair..."), complaints (again, about lifes injustice) and going over past sufferingsmost of this through my mother, who was very important for me."
"This is not true because I was taught that the most respected authority for health are doctors, not a Higher Powerdoctors diagnosis and prognosis are not based on any spiritual considerationsbut rather those of circumstances, especially material. My parents never doubted the authority of the medical profession to define and sentence health."
"All my life Ive heard that people never change."
" My early home environment left me feeling that I dont have the right to expect to get off the hook of a difficult relationship or situation."
"The opinions of others are a higher authority than my own innermost conviction, spiritual knowledge or divine authority."
Once youve done this exercise and looked at your own answers (by yourself or in a group you can exchange them with), youll be much more sensitive to the specific way in which youve been deceived by the limits of human opinion. Then the fourth and final part of our prayer practice for this powerful New Moon Vortex will take deeper hold in your awareness. If you have done Part III, it should be used immediately thereafter, in writing (and vocally if you choose), for at least 8 minutes (continue stating for a complete moon cycle as suggested below).
Affirmations for beginning an especially powerful prayer cycle during Mayas October 27 New Moon Vortex.
For a lasting shift in awareness, repeat them at least 8 minutes on the first day, and 7 minutes daily for 28-40 days thereafter. Avoid dispersing the energy by discussing your specific prayers with others until youve completed this cycle, or while youre still working for results.
I DECLARE MYSELF FREE FROM THE LIMITING BELIEFS OR JUDGEMENTAL ATTITUDES OF OTHERS. MY ONE AUTHORITY IS SPIRIT, WHO CAN AND IS BRINGING ABOUT ANY CHANGES THAT NEED TO BE WORKED IN MY LIFE NOW. I AM SPIRITS BELOVED CHILD, CREATED TO THRIVE AND PROSPER. I DESERVE AND ACCEPT EVERY PERFECT AND HAPPY OUTCOME THAT IS HERE FOR ME NOW.
I DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PROBLEM, DISSAPPOINTMENT OR LIMITATION AS REAL IN MY LIFE. THERE IS NOTHING BUT SPIRITS UNLIMITED GOOD FOR ME NOW. I CLAIM MY DIVINELY SUSTAINED HAPPY OUTCOME NOW.
This particular New Moon is also perfect time to share the following decrees, from a beautiful manuscript by the "Mother of New Thought," Emma Curtis Hopkins (Class Lessons 1888). She describes having used them silently to cure a woman of an "incurable" disease.
YOU ARE NOT MESMERIZED BY THE RACE BELIEF IN ILLNESS- NOT PSYCHOLOGIZED BY A WHOLE WORLD OF ERRORNOT MAGNETIZEDNOT HYPNOTIZED , CONSCIOUSLY OR UNCONSCIOUSLY, INTO ANY BELIEF IN EVIL. SPIRIT IS FREE FOREVERMORE. YOU ARE SPIRITUAL AND FREE FOREVERMORE.
ALL THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU CANNOT DECEIVE YOU BY THEIR BELIEVING IN WHAT IS NOT TRUE. SPIRIT IS TRUTH ITSELF. YOU ARE SPIRIT AND TRUTH, ONE WITH THIS PRESENCE IN WHOM YOU LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE YOUR BEING.
A final note for Daykeeper readers
This mid-fall, we invite you to dedicate some attention to recalling your true origin of Unlimited Love and Power, which created you to arise victorious above any apparent limitations in your own mind or experience. Go within to defy any opinions, past or present, collective or individual, which would negate your either your good or your inherent worthiness as a beautiful, beloved child of the Divine.
If you take such prayerful initiatives at this time, and persist with them by the guiding light of Mayas moon cycle, soon youll have some tricks up your sleeve to slay that "dragon of the collective unconscious," and youll also be sure to enjoy the many divine treats that are even now appearing on your doorstep.
