August Full Moon

Artist: Unknown

Have you felt the powers of this Full Moon? It felt like all recent incidents lead up to this point for me, to be fully aware of what needed to be released and to do so during the powerful Full Moon and time when the Lions Gate Portal is still active. This has been a week of dealing with some heavy issues and the first two days have definitely been rough. Then, once I wrapped my head and my thoughts around it, things became much easier and a lightness returned to my heart.

We are at the doorsteps of harvest season and to reap everything we have sown. Slower and more peaceful times are ahead of us as we prepare for winter. This Full Moon is a balance between hope and fear. We even have begun to harvest some things but the remaining crops are still in limbo. Our hope is that the universe continues to support us and shine it’s light upon us. Now is the time to face that shred of remaining fear and doubt and ensure the steps for our success are in place. What landscape are you finding yourself in at this moment of your journey? As I sit here and reflect on the year so far, I notice several landscapes I have been to. I see myself on the “Rollercoaster of Fear,” the “Valley of Loss and Doubt,” and the “Alps of Letting Go.” My new landscape has changed this week and I see myself as if I am approaching the promised land. I am at the doorsteps of “Adventure Land” and I am exited about what lies ahead. I am knocking, and I am knocking with conviction. Convinced that I am supported and that I am deserving. I am reaching the pot of gold that is always there for us at the other side of Fear. In my dreams, in my intuition and vision, I have already seen it unfold and I know that I will build my home, my sanctuary and a place peace in the upcoming months.

During this past week I have worked on some other things dear to my heart. Things I needed to make peace with, that I didn’t want to delay. All we ever have is today and all I can ever be responsible for are my own actions and not the responses or actions of others. Nor can I be responsible for their journey, their decisions and their choices, as long as mine are in order. I feel that this Full Moon has been another rebirth, another shedding of what no longer serves, a new me once more. I can’t keep track of how many new versions there have been of me this year and it has been a major learning curb. This year summarizes all open ends that have been in my life for many years. Most have been dealt with and have resolved. A few still need release but they have been acknowledged and are being worked on. It feels like I had to come to terms with everything all at once and through every experience a new me emerged, wiser, more knowledgeable and stronger. And I am grateful…

Have you felt the power of the Full Moon this month?


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 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. I have indeed felt it. Struggled with it as many of us do riding the line of fear. I really needed this post. Thank you for the reminder of the present energies. Often I get caught up in the human aspect of me without acknowledging what I am experiencing spiritually. Soul growth is painfully rewarding if you ask me. Thanks again for sharing your insight.

  2. As you know dear lady, I’m a Cancer lad with a Cancer rising, the moon and I go back a long way. I have been blessed this full moon with covid-19 and a compromised immune system. I think I must have been falling behind in my karmic tally 🤣❤️🙏🏽

      1. It has been an interesting journey, it is guiding me through so much healing…as you are also going through now. It shifts us through some ‘hard’ bits so that we let go and move on into that love a little more. And good luck with your future path with your new home and ‘you’ time Rhapsody, a discovery into what you are becoming. Take care xoxo 😀❤️🙏🏽
