How to Host a New Moon Gathering

A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. New Moon is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life.

Women are deeply synced with the cycles of the moon. I believe that one of the reasons humanity are so disconnected from the feminine aspects of ourselves – nurture, compassion, forgiveness, unconditional love – is because the woman has been deeply dishonored for thousands of years in a patriarchal world. Women with “powers” were condemned, burned at the stake, raped, pillaged, abused, and exploited – and still are.

And in today’s modern world, many of us live our lives so disconnected from Mother Earth, and devoid of any kind of ritual that creates the space for us to connect.

The New Moon provides us with an opportunity to take the time to create SACRED SPACE for ourselves. It’s essential.

There is something so powerful when women come together to support each other on their journey. We are healed, we are nurtured, we feel supported, comforted and understood – individually and collectively. Many of us feel alone on this spiritual journey, especially if our family and friends don’t understand the path that is unfolding for us. This is why gathering together as sacred, spiritual sisters, is imperative at this time in our evolution.

Moreover, when you share sacred space together you MAGNIFY the power of your intentions. You also create a web connecting women all across the globe with similar high-vibe intentions.

The tradition of women gatherings has been going on for eons, and when you gather with your sisters on the new moon you join millions of other women around the world doing the same, and the rise of the Divine Feminine begins to gain strength. It’s our time.

May this be an inspiration to you to gather at least a friend or two and create a circle of connection around the new moon.

First know that there is no right or wrong. It doesn’t matter exactly what you do, just that you create a ritual that feels reverent to your Higher Feminine Self.

I’ve put together some tips for creating a circle, but feel free to add or get creative in your circle.

1. Ask your sisters to bring a favorite essential oil, a favorite crystal, tarot deck, and their intentions written. Additionally, you can ask them to bring some flowers or herbs for a bowl of bath salts you will each share at the end.

If you wish to have dinner before, have everyone bring a dish to share. I tend to eat before and have everyone gather only for the ritual. I stay away from wine during the ritual, but it is fine if you’d like to share a little bit of red wine after the ceremony.

2. The day of the gathering, you’ll want to spend some time cleaning and beautifying your home. This is not because you need it to look a certain way for your visitors, but rather a cleansed space is where Great Goddess likes to join.

3. Pick a place where you can gather in a circle at your home. You could put a tapestry on the floor and put pillows all around. You could sit outside in the grass if the weather is nice. In the center you can put a bowl of unscented bath salts.  Put candles around it and extra oils that you can share in case someone forgot to bring one.

4. While your sisters arrive, light some sage, copal, or palo santo and “cleanse” the space and everyone before entering the circle. These sacred scents are beautiful purifiers and helps to cleanse the energy and create the space for the ritual to begin.

5.  Open the circle.You can ring a bell or chimes. Ask everyone to close their eyes, you can all take some deep breaths together, or Aum 3 times. Call in the directions & elements – North, South, East, West, Father Sky, Mother Earth.

6. Share a little bit about what will happen in the circle and the importance of gathering from your heart.  Share what’s happening with that particular Moon astrologically, what energy it’s bringing in~ For this, I love checking mysticmamma.com.  It’s amazing to see how many always feel resonant with what’s happening.

7. Pick 3 tarot decks and have everyone pick a card from each deck. There may be silence while everyone picks and reads about their cards.

8. Now begin going around the circle, beginning with yourself, set your intentions for what you wish to manifest in this new cycle, this new beginning marked by the New Moon…and potentially share what came up for you in your cards. Share your intentions silently or with the group aloud.

It is nice if everyone has a little piece of sage to burn while they are stating their intentions and speaking.

As you state what you wish to bring in, put a drop of oil in the bath salt with your intention. You might say something like, “I’m putting in Frankincense to bring in more grounding and connection to my Source” etc…

You may say as many intentions as you feel moved and with every intention, do an action, like put a drop of oil, a flower or herb in the bowl.  In this way, you are making your intention symbolic. When you are done, put out your sage in the salts. Then pass the space to the next sister.

9. After every sister has spoken, have everyone lay their hands on the salts and say a Blessing like: “May all our intentions be sealed, and realized!”

10.  The mood is happy, the ritual is almost over, everyone has shared and all are loving the herbal bath crystals you have created! Perhaps you can all sing a song or a chant. Personally I like to play the harmonium and chant to Lakshmi or another Goddess. You can print out the chant beforehand so everyone can follow.

11. To close the circle, join hands, give thanks, say it is done! Give thanks to the directions and elements and spirit animals for joining. Ring bells, clap and celebrate.

Post Circle::: Have everyone get their hands in the bowl and mix up the wonderful bath salts you have created. By this point, they are are infused with your intentions and filled with oils, flowers and herbs! PURE MAGIC! Each sister should take a handful or two or bath salts home. It is best to wait until the FULL MOON to take your bath in this magic salt potion.

Top 3 Metaphysical Tools I Use to Raise the Vibe of my Life + Biz

I believe the world will be changed by the Western Woman, as said by the Dalai Lama, and WE ARE the ones that will change it.  We need to use every tool we have available and nature is one of those high vibe tools.

What resources do you leverage to raise your vibe?

Did you know that just surrounding yourself with sacred space of plants, crystals, oils, and so many other beautiful things from nature automatically starts to bring you higher?

You start to think differently–seeing a more positive outlook, worries diminish because you feel CONNECTED. When that happens, you become a magnet 🔮

All that you desire already IS, you just need to become a vibrational match to it. Then the items, experiences, and people you want will naturally be attracted to you.

IMG_0822My top 3 tools for raising my vibe are:::

✨ Wild orange essential oil : the oil of abundance and the “happy oil”

✨ Crystal pendulum for decision making. Rose Quartz on my heart and while I sleep to keep me connected to my heart.

✨ Meditation, prayer + conscious thinking. How you think creates how you feel and your emotions create your vibration. I meditate 20 mins in the morning + night, and sometimes in the middle of the day too. Helps me stay high vibin’ all day.💟

I also make sure to sweat, fill my home with plants, altars + salt lamps, play tarot cards for guidance and use many essential oils throughout my day to support my mood, hormones, and focus.

The truth is that you can be or do or have anything that you have the WILL to focus upon long enough that it dominates your vibration and allows you to become ONE with source energy.

Nothing matters more than how you feel.  The way you feel is your true indicator of your alignment with your Source and of the alignment with your own intentions.

Essentially, all of these tools are here to help you feel connected. When you feel connected, you feel good, and when you feel good, you are in the highest vibrational frequency. From there, you have the power to ATTRACT all of your desires. It is your birthright to experience all of them.

Blessed be,

Tara

The Decision I Made For My Financial Legacy

Seven years ago, I had just finished my MBA, had a 6 figure job in Corporate America, and had already bought two condos in my hometown of Connecticut.

Most of you know that I had a sudden spiritual awakening and very quickly manifested getting laid off from my job and I began traveling the world on a spiritual quest.

My desires changed on finances. I didn’t want to be tied into the “system” or have to pay a mortgage, which for me meant having a job I didn’t love.

I gave it all up. I sold everything I had.

I lived like a gypsy for six years. I had some stuff in storage at my mom’s house, but mostly I carried my everyday belongings in my backpack.

I’d rent a little place either by the ocean in Byron Bay Australia, Goa India, or near the mountains in Chiang Mai Thailand and Ubud Bali, and “live” there for a while.

My job those days was to find out who I really am and what I came here to deliver.

Fast forward to today, I’ve built a successful business coaching, teaching, and network marketing. And my philosophy on finances until a couple of months ago was to only look at where and how I wanted to live. I manifested enough to pay to live there because I wanted to live there.

Then, something started to shift in me.

My vision for my financial legacy started to get bigger.  And I realized I was currently living out of integrity and congruence with that vision.

I not only wanted to earn a lot of income, but I wanted to create a tremendous amount of freedom. In other words, I wanted my passive and residual income streams to pay for my living expenses. Learn how I do that here. I do not want to have to trade my time for money ever again. This is true freedom for me.

That means that not only do I have to earn a lot, but my expenses have to make sense.

At that point, I was paying a high rent in Venice beach and barely able to save, invest, or pay down debt (I don’t have that much – thank goodness).

I realized that after a year in California, I had nothing to show for all my hard work. All my earned income went to living expenses.  For most of my life, I actually believed this was normal. Until I had this financial awakening.

I know that I’m here to expand, evolve, and inspire the collective to do the same. I can’t do that if I’m trading hours for dollars and spinning my wheels day after day just to pay for my expenses.

Additionally, I like nice things. Helloooooo.  I don’t want to live in a sh*thole. I’m not inspired to create there.

IMG_0654So, Las Vegas came into my world.

Beautiful homes for 1/3 of what I was paying in LA. New, clean, spacious. Pool & hot tub. Yard for the dogs to roam. Near an airport for all my travel. NO TRAFFIC! And NO STATE INCOME TAX. Say what?!

All the other living expenses are cheaper too – like food, gas, and trips to the salon;)

There’s a growing spiritual community here. I love being on the cutting edge and bringing the Light.

I used to think that thinking this way – about what is cheaper – was a poverty mindset. Now, I know that the wealthiest people in the world make GOOD financial decisions. They even make short term sacrifices to build their wealth and legacy. They don’t live above their means. They save and invest and don’t pay big interest on credit card debt.

This was my decision. I feel so happy with it. I have an extra bedroom in my beautiful home if you’d like to come visit and hang by the pool.

Thank you for being here.  I hope you take a look at your financial philosophy and see where you can create more freedom for your soul to soar.

Let me know in the comments: What’s one thing you can start doing today to change your financial legacy? Are you willing to make short term sacrifices for long term freedom?

Love,
Tara

10 Business Secrets I Wish I Knew When I Started Coaching

When I first got started as a coach & entrepreneur, I had no idea how to do it, and I stayed an amateur WAY longer than I care to admit.

The biggest mistakes I made were:

  • Not putting myself out there – like really sharing my true self with the world.
  • Not being consistent – this is really an upper limit problem.
  • Not getting the help I needed from the get-go.

So for those of you who dream to uplevel your side gig and make it your 100% reality,

If you long to finally leave the JOB that you know deep down is NOT the highest expression of your gifts,

And if you want to be financially free, even *wealthy*, because the world needs more conscious female millionaires,

Here ya go:

1. Start TODAY. That means not after you have a logo, an opt-in, or a fancy website.

2. Post content / value / opinions everyday – on your social media, and in groups where your ideal clients hang out. This is how you build a “brand.”

3. Make offers. You can’t make money unless you offer your services. The key to this is feeling that you’re really good at what you do. You gotta silence the doubts.

4. Know that “failing” is a good thing. Be really fucking vulnerable. Share your story. Keep going when you hear no.

5. Stick to one pathway and master it. Become a master, not a scattered downloader of every piece of free content available.

There are things I wish I knew….that took me a few years to figure it out. It’s all a beautiful journey, but I feel compelled to share with those of you who truly know in your heart you’re meant to contribute to the world with your own unique genius, how to be successful at it → How to make a big impact & earn big money.

Below I’m sharing with the key secrets that I know are necessary for any “passionpreneur” in the life, health, relationship, business coaching space.

1. Do everything with integrity.  Be the best in your area of mastery. Believe in what you do.

2. Charge what you’re worth, probably a lot more than you think to charge. Let’s face it: You probably have money blocks. Charging less doesn’t do anyone any favors. People value content more when they pay more for it. That’s the truth.

3. Create a system that can run on autopilot and brings in a steady stream of qualified clients.  Webinars do this best and I wish I had started doing them sooner.

4. Bring small groups together to create leverage. Bring your expertise to a small group and coach them together. Group energy is potent. And you stop trading hours for dollars.

5. Get a mentor. Seriously. I’ve made many mistakes in my biz, and the biggest one was not investing big in the beginning by talking to someone further ahead of me every single week.  There are two things that mentors do: give you a step-by-step plan, keep you on track with this plan, help you master your mindset {normally you can’t hear how you’re holding yourself back.}

If you’ve been dabbling with coaching by blogging, creating programs that don’t sell, managing a hundred social media platforms and are only making $1-2K per month, you can learn more on my recent Master Class right here.

If you want to make your biz sustainable, give you MORE freedom {not less} and make at least $10K per month giving your genius to the world, l want you to know it’s possible.

And the beautiful thing is that once you start making MORE income, you have more freedom to DO more in your biz, give more of yourself, influence more people, and even create multiple streams of income for yourself and your family.

The world needs you. Let’s do this.

Love,

Tara

BEST Money I Spent This Month

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 3.22.34 PMBEST money I spent in the last month was to re-join the gym.

I know… it sounds weird, because yes my LIFESTYLE is all about health + wellness, BUT somehow I forgot to sweat intensely over the past YEAR (WTF!) or so.

I don’t know how it happened.

I eat healthy and even go to yoga but it wasn’t enough and I didn’t realize it.

The challenge {if you can call it a challenge} for me can be that I don’t have weight concerns. One of my great blessings in this lifetime is that I never have to worry about losing weight. My body just naturally works that out.

So I guess without that focus, I can easily tell myself that I’m fine.

And what’s occurred to me is::: You don’t know what you’re missing until you find it <—— how true is this in other areas of life too?!

I didn’t realize how much I needed intense workouts {my new fav is boxing} until I was doing it. I feel 100% better than I did a month ago and I didn’t even know then that anything was missing.

Immediately energy started to SHIFT big time. Suddenly co-creating, manifesting, attracting became easier. Frustrations lifted. Trust deepened.

Why? Because I didn’t have pent up energy to give to worries.

I was talking with one of my team leaders the other day and she was telling me the intense fear and limiting thoughts that were clouding her psyche as she uplevels her biz, a pattern she’s struggled with for years, and I immediately said, “ARE YOU WORKING OUT?!”

It’s quite simple.

Relationships become more harmonious.
Focus is more on point.
Creativity skyrockets.
You have less stress, better sleep, better sex…

Need any more convincing?! wink emoticon

Through movement you activate dormant cells and you literally start to give off a different vibration to the world. Your body begins to relax and HEAL and this is the KEY to bringing in more of what you want in biz & life.

If you’re stuck, frustrated, scared, or worried in any area of your life, THIS is the breakthrough.

I’d love to hear in the comments your fav workout these days {INSPIRE ME}, and if you’ve fallen off the wagon, think about committing to a new goal for this week and state it here in the comments. I’d love to support you, and even hold you accountable!

All love ♡♡♡
