Full Moon drumming circle

It’s the first full moon of the year. The Wolf Moon in the sign of cancer, my birth sign. Tonight I will attend/resume my drumming circles and I’m excited. It’s been a few months since my last one in September of last year.

The full moon is a great time to release any energy that no longer serves you, while the new moon offers a time to set new intentions and to manifest anything you would like to see happen in your life. 2020 has started with a bang for me and it has been an emotional start, but all in a good way. Everything has intensified it seems. Awareness is raised and all feelings vibrate on a deeper level with higher sense of meaning. I feel acutely alive, feeling it all and I know that I am ready for whatever is next.

It’s a year that will be big for all of us, so have you felt the shift? Is something different that you can’t quite explain, but you feel it with certainty? Are you tolerating less, settling less, have you taken a more active part in being the co creator of your life? Well tonight is a time to release more of the things you have outgrown in your journey. Tonight we say goodbye as we release these things back to the universe.

Try to sit in a place where you can calm your mind without interruptions. Take a few deep breaths and think about what you want to release from your life. In your minds eye you can see and say something like this to seal your intentions.

“I release all the things from the last year that have caused any negative attachment. I prepare and welcome new changes, new lessons, and new adventures. I welcome new opportunities to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Feel how peace and serenity fills your heart as this energy leaves you. Consider it done and let go.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  2. Wish you all good with the drumming tonight for you, here it is night now.
    I hope to be able to see the full moon tonight, as we have some clouds here now. The lack of sleep for the last week have told me, that the next full moon was on the way.
    Yes, we need to release, what is not serving us any longer, so we are ready to live again.
    Much love to you ❤
