The focus on this full moon energy is to connect to your intuition and align to your spiritual center while harvesting the seeds you’ve been planting throughout the year.
Items to have handy:
Full Moon in Pisces is a feminine, watery, dreamy, mystical moon. Making it such a powerful time for us all to truly dive into our divine feminine, our intuitions, and explore our dreamiest dreams.
This moon is here to connect to yourself and spirituality even deeper than you already have. Deepening that connection with the inner you, your soul beyond your physical body.
Together the moon will fill us with the energy of awakening, bringing us beautiful change and endless possibilities. Providing us a fresh perspective to open us up to a new way of living and a new path to head down.
Remember to remain open to the new, be spontaneous and explore all possibilities. And really take the next couple days to really feel into this powerful energy.
Remember it is never too late to reinvent yourself, you can be whoever you want to be at any point in your life. This is such a powerful time for dreaming and really bringing our dreams into reality.
With this feminine energy it is even more apparent how connected we all are as females, and I know us as a collective group (if you are reading this) has really felt that energy recently as we are all so much more connected than we truly know. This Pisces full moon is very watery, paving the way for feeling extra emotional these next couple days as well, but it’s okay, nothing to be afraid of, just let it flow.
Plus, do not forget that our moon is feminine energy as well. I encourage you to really soak up and work with the moon’s energy during this cycle.
If there’s anything you wish to no longer carry with you, now is a great time to release it.
Let’s release what isn’t ours and truly surrender what isn’t.
Please take out a loose sheet of paper or pull a piece of paper out of your journal, to release through the act of putting your pen to paper. Think about and write out anything you’ve experienced this week, the last 2 weeks, month, even the last 6 months. Simply freely write on your sheet of paper to release anything that no longer serves you. Release it all on to the paper.
Release anything that no longer aligns with the path you are on, anything you’d like to simply leave behind, any emotions that feel stuck right now. Begin to write them all out on your sheet of paper, feeling their energy leaving you as they hit the paper, releasing them all to create space to call in what is. Checking those fear and ego-based thoughts behind you.
Now, when you are finished, pick up your sheet of paper and really honor the words that are on there. Honor them and thank them for the experiences that your soul incurred in this lifetime and set the intention that these words, stories, thoughts, emotions do not serve you and do not have control over you. For you are you. The greatest and most sparkly version of you.
And to fully leave behind all that we don’t want to take with us as we move forward. All that we are going to leave behind …. Let’s rip up (or burn, just be safe) everything you wrote out on to your paper just now.
Rip them up and thank these experiences and release them. If you have the ability and would like to safely burn them – by all means, please do.
Take a big inhale in through the nose really filling yourself up. Hold at the top and give it a big exhale, release out through the mouth.
If it feels good to you, you may wish to cleanse the energy of your space once more before moving into the rest of the ritual.
Now that we’ve let go and created the space to bring in and call forth all that is. Let’s ground down and really feel the ground beneath you. Take a moment of presence to feel your sit bones sink into the space that is supporting you and feel mama earth beneath you, supporting each and every one of us collectively, paying attention to your breath. Slowly begin to close your eyes and ground down into the space. Breathing in and out, watching the breath.
You are safe and you are protected here, sharing in the energy of tonight under the highest energy of mama moon. Sharing in the breath as we all inhale and exhale together.
Feel yourself letting go and grounding even deeper into the safe loving and protecting energy that the moon brings with her tonight. Feeling a into this state of presence and grounded energy.
(Take a few deep cleansing breaths to prepare for the meditation).

Please pull out your journal and take the next couple minutes to simply free write. Whether you elect to follow some of the following prompts, or simply fill in a list of all the things you are grateful for on this beautiful full moon. It may feel nice to also reflect on anything that came up for you during your meditation and how it feels to connect to your intuition and the moon.
Mantra to carry with you: I allow my soul to speak for me and my intuition to guide me
When you are ready to close out your space, simply take a moment to feel gratitude for all that you experience with this ritual. Remembering that you can come back here at any time.
I’d love to go back in time with you to the fall of 2019. I was coming off a season of travel, pr commitments, digital campaigns, web projects, and managing my own business and freelancers. My free time was spent researching the body, the benefits of plants and alternative procedures for autoimmune conditions and chronic illness, while planning my upcoming wedding, and raising our new puppy. Phew!
A year into my soon-to-be husband's chronic illness journey, I was supporting him the best way I knew how, while also taking a hard look at my own health.
I was taking a variety of supplements that I had spent a ton of time researching, while also experimenting with the effects of a plant-based lifestyle and the ways my body was responding to gluten, dairy, certain oils, animal proteins, sugar, and other inflammatory ingredients. This whole new world of understanding food as medicine compared to caloric, fat, or carb intake had me absolutely fascinated.
However, in my experimentations as I call them, I was still experiencing chronic constipation, cystic acne, brain fog, food fear, binge/eat restrict patterns, extreme bloat, etc.
There were several things I was missing and had yet to discover until a couple months later…
#1 Missing Ingredient: Gut Health
And the list goes on and on.
I’ll spare you the details for now as there is so much more to share, such as my sensitivity to certain fragrances and chemicals, the effects stress and caffeine have on my health, the hormone and healing journey that occurred simultaneously due to the years I’d spent on hormonal birth control, and so forth.
As you can imagine, I finally started seeing results when I restarted my journey with a primary focus on my gut - the center point of our systems, the main control panel and root of so much discomfort.
The results I started seeing happened almost immediately after a week’s time and have continued forward to where I sit today.
Now, did I completely reverse my health overnight? No. It took months and months of hard work, dedication, and pure intention. But it was fun all at the same time. I wouldn’t change the journey for anything. When you have years and years and years to heal, it’s going to take time. The longer you put it off, the longer it’s going to take.
I’m also still on the journey, as it never really ends. There isn’t a finish line to bettering ourselves and evolving on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual scale.
And I would never want it to end, because the relationship I hold with my body today is one of the best relationships I could have ever imagined. I see the correlation to my breakouts and stress, hormones, and dairy. I know the day my cycle is going to start. I apologize to my body after eating something that later causes two days of constipation (worth it in the moment). I know what my body needs and the messages she sends to me. I know what it takes to live life to the fullest, while honoring myself at the same time.
What’s funny, but also not funny, is that I always considered myself to be a “healthy person.” I just carried a misconstrued definition of what true health actually meant. A lot of us do, because we haven’t been properly educated on the ways to nurture and care for our bodies.
True health is not counting calories. True health is not fearing fruit or the foods that come from this earth. True health does not come in a box or package or can. True health is not low-carb, low-fat, and artificial flavorings. True health is not avoiding your feelings. True health is not built in the gym. True health is not sitting behind a computer all day. True health doesn’t come in a pill. True health doesn’t come from external gratification. True health is not a one-size fits all approach.
True health comes from within and is possible for every single person. Including you.
You simply have to be willing to start somewhere, to make mistakes, keep going, carry an open mind, and have faith that if I could do it, you can too.
If you are ready to get started on building a fresh foundation within your gut, I’d love for you to join me for my 6-Day Gut Health Reset.
Your world isn’t going to drastically change by the end of day six (physically impossible), but you will see noticeable shifts and a new sense of awareness.
While you can participate in this reset as many times as you need, we will be kicking things off as a group starting this Monday, September 13th. I’d love to see you there!
