Is everyone paying attention to themselves or others this week? I sure am, and I have noticed some symptoms starting yesterday morning almost like clock work. It’s so strange but I am stilling following and taking notes . I hope you are too.Let me know. Have a good week!
So after many many months of contemplating this idea, my husband and I have decided to live off the grid, so they call it.
We have purchased a home and some land together in a small town in the country. =) We are moving in, in one week and are so excited to start this wonderful, new to us way of life. It is a fixer upper but structurally sound. So we say, what a perfect start but boy do we have our work cut out for us.
We are not going to purchase a refrigerator, and we will have to use electric in the beginning but our goal is by this time next year if not sooner have everything working off solar power, I will be starting some of our fruit trees in doors to jump-start that project, and we are now currently looking for a wood stove for heating instead of the electric.
We have plans to add a couple more bedrooms, a mud room ,pantry, and back porch and eventually would like to replace the wood stove with a fireplace.
There is so much for us to learn but we will take it one day at a time. Next week we will be getting our chicks and maybe some laying hens to help us through the winter while our baby chicks grow.
We plan on having goats,a bull, a couple of cows,pigs, and eventually a few horses after we get in the swing of things. We’ll have a green house and out-door gardens and fruit bushes and trees.
Our goal is to be as self-sufficient as possible. So we will see how it goes. Wish us luck =) And as I learn so will you. I will be posting along the way. And if I disappear for a minute only know that I will soon return with some exciting new stories of our voyage to a new world!
This was on my New Moon wish list and we signed the papers the day after!
Found this diagram and thought you might like this.
Sit down in a quiet place with a pen and paper.
Make a list of things you would like to see change in your life. It can be anything from a change of heart to a new car.
If music relaxes you, play some music. If you like to sit by candle light, light a candle.
After I write my list I like to sleep with it under my pillow until the New Moon. To me, I feel like while I sleep my mind will still be on my list. 🙂 At the age I am now I am all about change and peace. And boy is it the most difficult voyage I have ever taken, but each day I will try and try and fail some days but keep trying the next.
I have found that life is about failure and without it we would learn very little.
So after you have made your list, you keep it in a safe place and when the New Moon comes you take it out and focus on the things you have listed for as long as you wish.
I wish everyone well, love, and happiness.
My New Moon “Wish” List
1. To be more assertive
2. To think before I speak
4. Take more time for myself
And a few more that I will keep to myself =)
Tomorrow night October 26th, 2011 @ 7:56pm I’m going to light a candle, get comfortable and focus on my “wish” list. I will be doing my best thus far to working towards my October New Moon goals.
It’s not about “wishing on a star” it’s about taking the time to sit down and focusing on your own personal goals. And the perfect time to do this is the New Moon, a fresh new start.
So grab a pen and sit down and make a conscious attempt to make a change with in yourself. Change is progression and progression is the future.
Good Luck..God Bless..and Great New Moon
So enough with the Full Moon, right? Now let’s concentrate on a new beginning with the New Moon.
Is there something new you’ve been wanting to try? Did you want to quit smoking or stop using a drug of choice? Start a new career or go back to school? Or maybe a new business adventure. Maybe you’ve been thinking about popping the big question, ” Will you marry me?” Whatever it is, the perfect time for it is the New Moon.
As we go through life we move through cycles,right? Have you ever heard anyone say that,Timing is everything. Well they are absolutly correct.
Any new adventure you want to start or bad habit you want to stop, the New Moon is the perfect time for it. This way by the time the full moon comes you should see the results you are looking for.
But remember also what goes around comes around so if your starting bad habits or in a rut around the New Moon odds are that bad energy will carry out to the full moon also. For example:
Say you are a college student and the New Moon comes around and you have been on the lazy side of studying and right now your having a better time partying, expect for a bad month all together because you go from not keeping up and studying to not being prepared for class and pop quizzes to your energy level going down from being out late and not getting the proper amount of rest.
Did you know that Benjamin Franklin himself used astrology to select the date and time that the Declaration of Independence was signed.
Something to think about don’t you think?
