Four Simple Ways to Heal Your Energy This Extraordinary Cancer Season

June 29, 2020

Just last week, there were three major astrological events, including the solar eclipse, new moon in Cancer and summer solstice. We have to ask, are you guys okay!? 

This Cancer new moon is quite extraordinary this year, as it’s the first in a duo of consecutive Cancer new moons. Heightened emotions may surface, riding the coattails of the potent solar eclipse and could continue with the next new moon in Cancer on July 20. It’s a fantastic time for healing, purging and releasing as we take a look at where we need true support in our lives. 

Below, you’ll find four incredible practices that will help you ground your energy, release negative emotions or patterns and grow into the awe-inspiring being of light that you are this season!

Take a Crystal Healing Bath

If you’ve never taken a crystal healing bath, it’s time you get on that. Water, itself, is already an incredible healing force, but adding crystals to the mix amplifies the energy tenfold. Using simple epsom salt combined with an amethyst, rose quartz and clear quartz stone is our personal favorite way to clear out old stagnant energy that no longer serves. You can also add essential oils like lavender and frankincense for an extra boost of relaxation. You may not feel any different during the actual bath, but you’ll wake up the next morning feeling amazingly refreshed. You can find out more on ritual baths (including what stones shouldn’t be used in the tub) HERE.

Practice ‘I Am’ Affirmations

Never underestimate the effect of a simple ‘I am’ affirmation. By putting these short words in front of any dynamic or positive adjective, you’re reminding yourself of your own truth and divinity. They essentially train your subconscious to release blocks and negativity that may be holding you back from manifesting your dreams. Luckily, YouTube is a beautiful place filled with many meditations and affirmations for different conditions you’d like in your life including success, love, abundance—you name it.

Pay Attention to Emotional Triggers

The nature of Cancer is highly emotional and sensitive. That energy can also be amplified at the time of a new moon. Old emotional wounds may surface during this time that, let’s be honest, you hadn’t planned on revisiting. Instead of trying to bury pain or unpleasant emotions, let them rise to the surface for healing and clearing. Meditate on uplifting mantras to rebuild your confident spirit. Everything we experience is for our personal growth, and there’s no greater form of expansion than deep, soulful rejuvenation.

♋︎ CANCER SEASON/ SUMMER SOLISTICE/ SOLAR ECLIPSE ♋︎. ⠀ Cancer Season begins today, bringing us a New Moon/Solar Eclipse to begin her four-week journey. The energy of Cancer takes us on an emotional rollercoaster, which starts with feeling, then shifts to understanding, to knowing, until we arrive at healing. This Season is a time to allow our emotions to rise, to see them, to honor them, and to learn from them. It takes courage to feel and first requires we put down our distractions and sit with all the uncomfortableness, which eventually leads to growth. ⠀ Solar Eclipses are powerful times that allow us to see the road we have traveled, what we are leaving behind, and where we are going. It’s a period of reflection when we can fully process the lessons of the past six months. This weekend, sit with any emotions you are experiencing. Set an intention to feel them, but then release them. Notice which ones want to stick around and ask them what they have to teach you. What messages are you emotions bringing you at this time? What are they helping you understand? ⠀ Solar Eclipses are supercharged New Moons. This is the first New Moon of Cancer Season. Set the intention to work with Cancer’s energy from one New Moon to the next, creating daily practices to focus on emotional understanding. Consider writing the statement “I feel” each day and letting your feelings run onto the paper. From emotions comes our intuition. The deeper you feel, the more you unlock your divine wisdom, which will lead you to the path forward. Release any need for a concrete plan. It’s 2020, after all- anything can happen. Instead, learn to trust your intuition and know you can rely on it. You can rely on yourself in the face of any challenge. The energy of Cancer reminds us of just how strong we really are and encourages us to lean into our inherent power every day. As you set intentions this weekend, create them from your intuition. Hold the highest vibration for the future of your life and the world. ⠀ Learn more about this Season/New Moon in the Cancer workbook.

Make Moon Water 

Yes, moon water is totally a thing and it’s incredibly magical✨🌝. There’s no better way to cleanse and soothe your inner turbulence than by sipping on transformation-infused H20. The moon greatly influences the tides of the ocean, so why wouldn’t it have an effect on our physical bodies? You can make a batch by simply putting out a jar of water under a full moon to charge it with its energy and taking a nice, big chug of it the next morning. Take this practice further by adding a specific intention or something you would like to manifest to it before setting it out.
