Each new moon is an opportunity for a start fresh and new beginning. It’s a nightly reflection that models a pattern that we all can observe as it transforms crossing the night sky. Generations have used the moon calendar for guidance and have associated its changing reflections with different qualities. Qualities that we can now harness to break free of the old stories that may be holding us prisoner to the past. Following the 8 phases of the moon to do a personal check in can retrain our mind to respond with more flexibility and assertiveness. Making choices and taking actions will be inspired resulting in increased inner motivation.
What qualities would you like to be experiencing as May’s moon travels through to the next new moon? Any of these?
Now imagine the needs you will celebrate as this moon transitions into a new one for it’s next journey around the planet? Any of these:
Today, May 1st, is the start of the 4th Phase of Moon Goal Setting. There is still time to go inward and connect to your goals. The moon is not full until May 6th giving you a number of days to consider this. Get the workbook below to make it easier to connect to make the illusive obvious.
May/June New Moon to New Moon Goal Phase Calendar Workbook
Inspired 8 Phase Goal Setting Calendar Workbook
Creating life balance consciously put’s you in the drivers seat. Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, broke down the conditions that creates a lack of power in ones world. One of these conditions is giving authority over to some unseen source. Giving one’s power away disconnects one from their inner support and experiencing joy and happiness in life itself.
This workbook is the start to harnessing your focus and aiming it at the parts that make up your life. In this model there are nine life areas to bring focus to equally for balance and harmony. This exercise replaces the stories one tells themselves with checking in to explore intention for creating choices.
Remaining in the stories increases their hold that nurtures hopelessness and futility. Stopping to define the life you want to create brings hope and anticipation.
This practical life exercise can be applied to personal transformation and adapted into family life, and businesses. Imagine how this template focus can cultivate a deeper connection and experience to the things that really matter. The things that bring success, joy and harmony. For example:
A mom pausing to center and consciously define her current focus while considering if it is meeting her needs. What areas can shift her attention to balance out the life energy that may be dominated by one or two areas?
Awareness is the doorway to personal transformation.
Her second step is to consider her families experience separately from the first step. The first step is focused upon personal transformation. Yes your are reading this correctly. Her personal needs are separate from her whole family needs. If she is not taking care of herself, her family will not thrive. Interdependence is an important role model for children. This doesn’t translate into selfishness, rather it decreases it. As she lays this template over the current family experience the areas not receiving equal attention can be tweaked from her growing awareness of differences between what is currently happening and her inner definition of family and home life.
Another example is in the work place. This is a model that could bring employees and employers into alignment with the values of the company. To begin it would be an individual exercise of reflecting on ones own needs for each area and then once again to reflect on how they are contributing to the companies nine life areas. Some sample questions equally important for the employer and employee are:
Are they contributing to their own needs for fame at the expense of co-workers and the business themselves?
Are they meeting their needs for financial wages only while not interested in this job as a career? If so, how is this contributing to the moral and shared values of the company?
Is the employer interested in a healthy work space that influences the mental, emotional and physical health of the employees? This question would require a reflection of ALL nine life areas as each one pertains to overall functional health of a business.
Healthy employees, healthy business.

This picture is an example of an Office Relationship corner placement. Taken in 2004 it reflects a community sharing an intention of common goals to practice a value based communication system led by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, Author of Nonviolent Communication. There was an agreement to focus on shifting common thoughts to a way of connecting without criticism, judgement and right and wrong to practicing honesty and empathy while in this gathering. This reflects the landscape environment of relationships that is my intention for immersing myself in a working community.
