LA LUNA~LUCID LIVING
LUNAR ENLIGHTENMENT FOR CREATIVE SELF MANIFESTATION
Lunar Consciousness is a solo journey inward. It is also a collective experience as we all live our lives in concert with the Moon as she waxes and wanes each month. Personal and Collective. Self and Other. Unified and Independent. The Moon is our portal to the source energy that vitalizes all life. The Moon is the sacred crucible that safely allows us to manifest our purpose. Lunar Consciousness is understanding the importance of reclaiming the split off parts of yourself, the inner demons holding you hostage in the negative mental loops of learned self-crushing. Lunar Consciousness begins with loving yourself with full self-acceptance.
To be empowered as we move forward it is important to recognize that the culture that is ending is one that has devalued the feminine. This is not a gender statement. This is an energetic truth. The focused, achievement oriented, competitive, world of stiving for power and dominion over everything clearly has not worked well for all. Current events support this statement: pandemic, global war, more people suffering without food or shelter, growing environmental calamity, and people polarized to such a degree that we are losing the ability to communicate respectfully. The antidote to this imbalance, and the guidance we will need to navigate the territory beyond everything that has historically defined us is to embrace feminine energy as represented by the Moon, by reawakening Lunar Consciousness.
Feminine energy is receptive, magnetic, emotional, inward going versus masculine energy, which is forceful, electric, dynamic, willful, outward going. BOTH energies are within each of us, and BOTH are required for wholeness. Lunar Consciousness is how we take up the path of peaceful revolution, which begins with loving yourself with full self-acceptance.
The intention of each La Luna~Lucid Living forum is to share the energies of the monthly lunation through immersion, reflection, and active grounding of the Moon's energies through Astro-Jin© a proprietary blending of Astrology with the energy healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
In the 1950s an American-born Japanese woman named Mary Burmeister brought Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) to the United States from Japan. Jin Shin Jyutsu is the art of using your hands to harmonize the energy of the body to relieve stress and tension and to bring balance and healing to body, mind, and spirit.
In the 1960s, before Mary began teaching Jin Shin Jytsu in the United States, she wove the knowledge of Astrology into Jin Shin Jyutsu. Mary did this intentionally because she knew that both wisdom schools were powerful knowledge banks for understanding the functioning of humans on all levels (body, mind, and spirit); she also knew that by combining the two she could more easily open her students of the West to receive the knowledge of the East.
Astro-Jin© is built upon Mary’s harmonized vision. Utilizing the self-help component of Jin Shin Jyutsu, which is holding your fingers and/or placing your hands on various points of your body known as Safety Energy Locks, Astro-Jin© focuses the vibrational energy of real-time planetary movements to nourish and support the journey of self-awareness, vitalization, and agency.
Merriam-Webster defines ‘lucid’ as “suffused with light (luminous), having full use of one’s faculties (sane), clear to the understanding (intelligible). The word lucid is usually associated with the Moon through the concept of lucid dreaming, which is dreaming with the awareness that the dream events are not really happening even though they feel real, so real that we believe we can direct what is going on in the dream, and we do…. The name La Luna~Lucid Living© is an invocation of the creative control of wakefulness in the unconscious dream state, the name transforms lucid dreaming into lucid living to make a real-time place for Lunar Consciousness in support of creative, whole, and authentic self-manifestation.
