Have you ever been curious about what goes on at a Full Moon Ritual?
Have you ever been to and/or lead a Full Moon Ritual?
Now in 2013, you have the opportunity to join live or watch the recording!
(The Moon dates and times are at the end of this post, I suggest bookmarking this)


I would love for you to be a part of Co-creating with Community each months Ritual!!

Why?
Besides the intent to connect with the youth and children through a contribution of songs
To me, honoring the Full moon with ritual, is the highest expression of what Feminine Spirituality really means. Ritual is within the word Spiritual, and at the time of the Full moon we create sacred space to remind us of who we are. Spirit in Body.

Structure with Spontaneity

To create the sacred space, we sing to the Grandmothers of the 4 directions, we visualize pulling down the energy of the moon to fill and encircle us with healing energy, and then send it out to the world. A card is picked for the month and I may be offering the Yoga Cosmic Breath energy tool in the months to come.

The spontaneity comes from the contribution of the songs, chants, drumming, rattles, and any other way merriment wants to reveal itself….we just create the space and be open to the Divine Creative flow.

For Example

The songs that we recorded in Jan. had some songs for children, we opened with Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and another we sang was itsy, bitsy spider  along with the hand movements. Then I taught some Sacred Songs which always weaves the beauty of words into vibrations of magic when song under the influence of the Moon.
Healers and Wisewoman have been using the full moon for generations for blessings, askings and giving thanks by using chants and songs to vocally project vibrations into the Universe to actualize the force of attraction.

 

What if you could contribute a song or chant and dedicate it to someone, who would that be?523265_361445900629914_2134978644_n

Can you imagine the extra blessings come from the group energy as each person is held in a loving space as they sing on behalf of:

Their children, child, grandchildren, unborn child/grandchildren,

Mother, Father, Grandparent, brother, sister, lover, friend, mentor..etc.

And it is recorded and shared with that person!! Do you think it would touch a persons heart. I know I would touched!

And if anytime throughout the month if the world gets to much for you and you feel you are out of balance, out of tune, or just feeling isolated and alone. Please come back to the Heart Centered space of our songs. To be reminded, We are all one in this Universe.

“We are the music makers,

And we are the dreamers of dreams,

Wandering by lone sea breakers,

And sitting by desolate streams;

World-losers and world-forsakers,

On whom the pale moon gleams:

Yet we are the movers and the shakers

Of the world forever it seems” ~John Williams 1849

Even if you don’t want to contribute a song the first time, please join us and lend your energy!

May these words from my friend Lynn Rose inspire you:

“What’s YOUR song? What’s important to YOU? What’s calling to you?…Don’t let anything hold you back, do everything in your power to move through what comes up so that you share all of who you are, all of who you’re meant to be and all you’re meant to express. I once was shut down & closed off. To be feeling fully alive now and to be able to express…is sheer JOY!

Bright Blessings and Big Love as we dream and sing in a new world together

Do you feel the call to bring your gifts and talents forth more strongly to make the world a better place?

You are not alone!

“In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.” — Wangari Maathai

I got called in the middle of Jan. to say “Yes” to a creative idea. From what appeared to be an, out of nowhere, like a lightning bolt of determination and passion to give my gifts in a Bigger way.

In the last post I shared the Vision: to give and gather songs during each Full Moon of 2013 to leave as a legacy for the children. 316621_2574196281219_1443664173_2973948_1025505106_n

The intent: Be The Voice, by contributing and collaborating together to let the children know we care.

Today, I want to share how you can access the recording of the songs and full moon ritual and the merriment and fun this interactive, intimate, platform provides.

I was more than a little “nervous”
 about bringing the Jan. Full Moon live
 
…because I  honestly didn’t know
whether I would 
be able to pull it off.
 It has taken me a couple of weeks to figure out how to write the details to view the recording at this new virtual platform.
I decided to make a instructional video, and it is in two parts.
The first video explains the vision with the (Map) tutorial to access the

recording after someone has signed up at the learn it live platform.

Step 1 ~ Sign up at virtual yoga studio

Step 2 ~ Watch this Video to Navigate to the first Session (Jan Full Moon)

Step 3 ~ Watch this video for quick back story of this mission and learn one of the songs

The meaning of merriment from wikipedia

mer·ri·ment

Noun
Gaiety and fun.
Synonyms
mirth – gaiety – joy – hilarity – glee – frolic

Modern Version of Merriment

Joyful ~ Juicy~Succulent~Unapologetic, Inner Child Spontaneity

These Full Moon Rituals are interactive
and you don’t even have to show up at
my doorstep in BC Canada…saving you time, money and energy.
Do you have a song or chant you can contribute?
When something is important enough you just fit it in.”
Singing as a Movement in Consciousness

Sept2012 002

It has been more than a month since I made an entry to this blog. The last time was the quickest post I ever wrote and it was a deep piece that offended many people. I had 900 subscribers from my Facebook page leave and 30 Twitter followers.

How’s that for rocking the boat and having the courage to care enough to share a message that could be one source of why people in Western societies put up with lies and broken promises?

Even though I have been away from blogging, I have not been idle on my promise to my Granddaughter. Since Nov. 2012 I have been doing a video series called “RecordKeeping for Kaitlyn” on youtube.

I realize that most of my posts on this blog for 2012 have been on the Cosmic Breath Technique and after I shared the process for 12.12.12 I took a bit of time-out and I realized what truly matters to me is connecting with the children. I have left a legacy of giving for years and some parts of my journey in my book include my connection to Native Elder Dave Courchene and the Children and the seeds that were planted before my granddaughter was even born.

Problem~

In this video I share a Native Prophecy from my mentor and a time we gathered before the war in 2002 and him asking us to help children discover their spirit. At the end of the video I name a problem of women not finding their voices to speak what has always been important to us, The babies and the Children!

Solution~

I found a solution that will help open women’s voices and hearts at the same time. Singing. More to the point sharing songs and chants that can be recorded and left as a legacy for the children. These will be held at the Virtual yoga studio on Full moons in 2013 to add more potency to empower everyone! Read the intent and get the schedule at this link before Sun. Jan 27th the first full moon.

Gathering on Full Moons to leave a Legacy of Songs

There is a 2 min. video explaining more that will greet you at the yoga studio so I won’t include it now.

This video I sing a part of a chant and share more of how the platform at the studio will work

And finally here is a 17 sec. video of my Daughter and Granddaughter singing me a song via Skype (Skype is how I’ve watched Kaitlyn grow up thus far)

I invite you to watch the video on youtube and please subscribe to my channel to stay connected to the “Recordkeeping for Kaitlyn” as we collectively journey through this time together.

Show the Children WE Care and think globally. Sharing in sing-a-longs is one way to adventurously expand our scope in the world.
Please Help me connect to the children by passing this open invitation along.Gathering on Full Moons to leave a Legacy of Songs

Blessings,

This bittersweet tale is a re-telling of a Ugandan story. Unlike many how and why stories which explain the way the natural world came to be, this tale describes how our inner landscape took its uniquely human shape.

A long time ago, in the beginning of things, Worldmaker made the world. Worldmaker made the earth and stars and water and creatures. Man and Woman were given intelligence, but they did not posses Heart.

    One day Worldmaker called Sun, Moon, Darkness, and Rain and said, “My children, I have almost finished making the world. Soon the time will come for me to leave. I am going to send Heart in my place. Before I leave you, my children, I would like to know what you plan to do when I have gone. You, my bright Sun, what will you do?

Sun answered, “Worldmaker, I will become hotter and hotter, and shine upon the Earth with all my strength!”

   Worldmaker spoke to the Sun and said, “No, my child. That is not a good idea. You would burn the world with your heat and dazzle it with your brightness. No, Sun, here is what you must do. Take turns with Rain. After you warm the Earth, let Rain come and refresh it. That is the proper way to be.

And you, Rain, what did you have in mind?”

“Oh, Worldmaker, I want to pour and pour and pour and pour upon the Earth, and cover it with my waters!”

   “No again, my dear one. If you flood the Earth, all the creatures will be swept away. Instead, take your turn with Sun. You will cool and water the Earth in the proper season, and Sun will warm it again.

How about you, Darkness, what do you intend to do?”

“I want to Rule FOREVER! shouted Darkness.

   “Child, this cannot be. If you ruled forever, the creatures of the Earth would not be able to look upon the Loveliness I have made for them. No, Darkness, you will rule only when Moon is in its last quarter. Only then will you have your dominion.

And as for you, Moon, my sweet, strange child, the night will be yours to shine in. Sometimes you will shine full and round, sometimes you will make a thin crescent of light. Up and over you will go, cutting loose dreams.

So it will be forever, my children. But my time has come to leave you, and this world that I have made. I will send Heart in my place.”

   So saying, Worldmaker disappeared. Not long afterwards Heart came into the world. Heart was small and red, about the size of my fist. Heart was crying. Heart came to the children of Worldmaker and said, “ I am looking for the one who made me. Tell me where I can find the one who made this world.”

Sun, Moon, Darkness and Rain replied, “We do not know where Worldmaker has gone. We don not know where you must search.”

Heart said, “I long to meet the one who made me, but since the Worldmaker has gone away, I will enter into Man and Woman, Perhaps through them I will find the one I seek.”

And so, ever since then, every child of Man and Woman has been born with a longing to meet the one who made the world. And that is what we call Heart.

This story was given to me when I was taking my yoga teacher training as a handout while working on the Heart Chakra. It is retold by Dan Yashinsky from his book “The Storyteller at Fault” and appeared in a Toronto magazine, called Why in 1995.

My intent for writing this story is for my granddaughter but my hope is also for you, my readers, to also read it to your children or grandchildren, Young or Old!

Blessings,

Margarit
