Explore your Emotions this New Moon in Cancer

What is most important in this new moon period is to connect to the frequency of your emotions. The energy of Cancer is highly emotive and very deep in this realm. So it's the ideal time to really dial into what you are feeling and how you are experiencing life.

So often we create a buffer between ourselves and our emotions because we are taught emotions are wrong or unsafe. But if you can get clear to the best of your ability what these emotions are trying to tell you - you will get a great understanding of what actually generates your experience.

Blocked patterns and stuck places in life are always blocked and stuck beliefs and emotions. That's OK. There is nothing wrong with the process of being stuck. The universe is just showing you areas where you can use a little more expansion. However, if you're in need of forward momentum - your emotions are the gateway to change - and moreover the beliefs aligned with those emotions.

Allow yourself to ponder the following questions through your journal, meditation or just keeping these questions in your awareness tonight.

Pick an area of life where you feel resistance or stuckness. This can be work, relationship, health, self esteem - whatever comes to mind is perfect.

Take note of the experience you are having in this area of life. Do you feel tired? Frustrated? Upset? Like a victim? The possibilities go on and on. Trust anything and everything that comes up and keep curious about it. You can stop when you feel complete, but don't allow any of your answers to become concrete. Stay in the questioning.

Now take note of the feelings in your body attached to this experience? Do you feel collapsed? Tight? How is your breathing? Notice where the sensations are located and note all of them you can notice.

Ask yourself: How do I benefit from having this experience? In what way has this negative experience served me? For example, I was coaching a client with a chronic illness and I asked her this very question. It came to her instantly that when she was a kid if she got sick she was allowed to rest. Now as an over worked grown up she benefits from being ill because it's the only way she gives herself permission to rest.

Just for a moment allow yourself to believe this truth: people always choose what is perceived to be more pleasurable and avoid what is perceived to be more painful. Don't question this notion - just accept it for the purpose of this exercise. I will repeat it: you always choose what you perceive is more pleasurable and always avoid what you perceive to be more painful. This is human nature. Therefore, if you're having an unpleasant experience in this specific area of life it's because there's some fear belief that is attached to a more pleasurable experience. You are actually choosing the less painful option based on your perception.

Examine: what beliefs or fears prevent me from creating my preferred experience? For example, say you are in a job that you very much dislike. In your ideal situation you are creative, making the money you desire and are pursuing your purpose - however, there are layers of fears, doubts and beliefs about disappointing your family, or not being worth it, or failure.

Ask yourself if those beliefs are really true? One by one examine each and really sense if they're true. It's likely that none of them actually belong to you (they're voices of society, your parents, the mean kid in the sixth grade). As you identify each belief's origin you tell your psyche it's not true. When you release that belief and separate it from you - release the emotion attached to it and make more space for the reality you really want.

Next take note of the experience you'd rather be having. How would you prefer to feel? Excited? Expansive? Relaxed? At ease? So on and so forth. Allow yourself to connect with your body to get the sensations of this more positive, higher vibrational experience.

On a daily basis connect to the energy and emotion of the experience you'd rather be having. Call it up into your body as a tone - it doesn't have to be a specific picture (although it can be). Believe that is is already happening during this part of the exercise. Because it is!
