full moon earth healing and mantra card

i have recently joined robyn's full moon earth healing circle with the collective aim to help heal the earth through our monthly rituals which are carried out on the night of a full moon. last night, there was a full moon in our night sky so i braved the cold and went outside to sit under the pergola. i lit the candle (pictured below) as the start to my ritual and then i stared up at the full moon and invoked its magic to help heal the earth.

i meditated on this for around ten minutes before the cold winter breezes got the better of me.
after saying a silent prayer of thanks, i headed back inside, feeling happy that i had contributed my energies to healing the earth.

the full moon earth healing ritual also inspired my mantra card for this week.
the full moon is believed to enhance psychic powers and abilities. it is helpful in all forms of magic and enhances power where it is needed most.

so my affirmation this week is -
i am confident in my abilities
may this encourage me to be an instrument in the earth's healing

  1. and as you send healing to Mother Earth, she in turn will continue to nurture and heal you... we are one.
    thanks so much xo ~ (I am getting a button together for those who wish to link to the Earth Healing ritual - and the disc will be there soon!)

  2. beautiful. I am part of the healing circle too, and the card especially touches me ... it is easy to get discouraged in our efforts, as Robyn wrote yesterday. Thanks Serena.

  3. SWEET!!
    I so wish I could find a women's/healing circle in my area.
    I love that you shared this with us.
    Here's to healing our mother earth!

  4. What a wonderful thing to do! but hey.....aren't you in QLD? it cant be too cold up there!

  5. A good message of healing... we need it.

    Hi to Cody.

  6. Serena - this is beyond beautiful. I think this group sounds wonderful! The earth can use all the positive prayers it can get!!! Good for you...braving the chill to sit silently and appreciate this beautiful planet we call home. I love your mantra card amaze me with your art.

  7. WOW oh wow oh wow
    is all i can say

    these cards are so amazing.


  8. I use to sit out on full moons and send some of my energy back into the earth when I lived in Alberta. Made me feel better spiritually and physically. I thought the earth got something out of it and I did too :) so it was a win win situation. And I loved sitting there listening to the coyotes howling away :)

  9. thanks, robyn ~ :)

    thanks, lisa. i'll pop on over to your blog shortly ~ :)

    thanks, boho. :) this is an online group and, like you, i would love to find a woman's circle in my area but wouldn't have a clue where to start looking.

    thanks, messyfish. :) it's cold to our acclimatised bodies. coming from a colder area, you would probably not even notice the cold here. lol

    thank you, prospero, and i'll be sure to say HI to cody for you. :)

    thanks, caroline. :) it's been a busy week for me but i plan on catching up with your blog shortly.

    thanks, glad you dropped by ~ :)

    i agree, jennifer. i certainly felt better after the ritual ~ :)

  10. You paint the greatest mantra cards! I love this one...

  11. I love your mantra cards!!!!! Also like to go out under the moon and stars and contemplate whatever is going on in life and remember past lives.

  12. Hi Serena. Angelina is four pounds of fluff (and a Papillon). She just turned 11. What about Cody?

  13. thanks, sandy ~ :)

    thanks, julie. :) i love contemplating life too while staring up at the sky - day or night. such vastness is mesmerising for me.

    prospero, i thought angelina was a papillon when i saw her photo on your blog. very cute! my cody is a cross between chihuahua/shih-tzu/ vet says he has definitely taken more after the maltese and shih-tzu though. he will be turning three in november. :)

  14. What a beautiful card. The moon certainly has a magical effect on everyone.

  15. Beautiful mantra card Serena!! The ritual you held sounds so peaceful and calming! I feel like I'm running around like a mad woman most days...I should learn to do this!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments :)

  16. Hi Serena,

    What a wonderful thing to do. Do you do this every time there is a Full moon? I would love to join in on healing the Earth.

  17. Hi Serena!
    My calendar doesn't tell the phases of the moon, so I'd have to find some place online that tells when the moon is full. The more people sending good energy to the earth the better! Love your night moon mantra card! You'll always think of your moonlight healing sessions every time you see it. :)

  18. This is pretty amazing as I am currently working on a painting of a woman looking at a full moon.

    These synchonicities are showing up more and more in recent times. I'll have it posted to my own blog in a couple of days.

  19. Pretty card. I hope your mantra works. We could all use some healing.

  20. I can't think of a more dynamic duo than you and Robyn! If i had money to burn and could spend a few days with anyone on this planet I would totally come hang out with you two. You are both so amazing! The earth is in good hands! :)

    Your affirmation card is divine! :)

  21. thanks, has been proven that the moon cycles can effect our moods. i find it fascinating ~ :)

    thanks, darla. i love visiting your blog.

    thanks, norma. we would love to have you on board with this. yes, each month on the full moon...each of us in the circle spends some time doing our own earth healing do what suits you best. it truly has a positive effect on your own wellbeing too. i'll email you. :)

    thanks, rita. in my sidebar, i have a gadget that tells me what phase the moon is in each and every day. mine is set for the Southern hemisphere. if you click on it, you will be taken to the website where you will be able to copy and paste the code into your blog via the Add a Gadget feature.

    thomas, i love that we were on the same wavelength. i've found that a lot lately with other blogger friends. it's collective consciousness at work and i'll look forward to seeing your painting.

    thanks, carla ~ :)

    thanks for your lovely comment, genie. i know that you, robyn and i would have a fantastic time together. :)

  22. That painting is up on my blog now. So weird how we all kinda tap into each other's concepts without knowing.

  23. Sorry the painting is called "Moonflower".

  24. Hi, Serena, I think it is wonderful that you are actively pursuing what you feel strongly about.

    Your "confident" piece is beautiful. Is it a card?

    *Perhaps I should make you a shawl for the cool night outdoor meditation.

  25. thanks for the heads up, thomas ~ :)

    thanks, luci, and yes, the mantra piece is one of the cards i've been doing each week. i hope to have a whole deck by the end of the year. awwww, you're a sweetie....i've actually been thinking of making a shawl for those chilly nights outdoors. my dressing gown sufficed ~ :)

  26. Wow, I really like this one! Prob my fav so far, though they are all so lovely.

  27. ahhh yes! so soothing to this weary fish at this moment!

  28. thanks, shell. :)

    thanks, messyfish. :)
