As a Gay Man, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgendered individual, who are you?
Yes, this is a question that is good for one to pose, regardless of his or her sexual orientation, but as members of the LGBT communities, sometimes we look to others to determine who we are.
Sometimes we look to our straight counterparts, and sometimes we look to our fellow Lesbians, Gay Men, Bisexuals and Transgendered individuals.
Regardless of your sexual orientation, but especially if you are a Gay Man, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender person, I invite you to do the following:
This Friday night, February 28, 2014 (the Night of the DarkMoon [the Night before the New Moon]], make a list of all the things you know yourself to be and no longer wish to be.
An example of this could be:
3. Obsessed with money
4. Size queen
Read the list twice, to make sure these are qualities that you are ready to surrender and release and banish back to the nothingness from whence they came, and then burn the list. Collect the ashes and flush them down the toilet.
And then, on the following night, Saturday, March 1, 2014 (the date of the New Moon in Pisces), you can make a list of qualities you wish to begin to either manifest or magnify in you. One example could be:
1. Financially peaceful
3. Loved and adored
4. Healthy and well
5. Divinely Protected
Read your list–again, twice–to make sure you are open and receptive to either manifesting or magnifying those qualities.
You can read your list every day, place the list in front of you in a place you spend most of your time (or, if you live with others, carry the list in your bag, wallet, etc.) then place the list under your pillows or inside your pillow (under the pillow, touching the top of the bed) and then allow yourself to KNOW yourself as this, already.
Do you have to do this? No. However, it is no coincidence that the color purple has Spiritual, Magickal and Energetic significance, and it is also no coincidence that the color purple can be found in the Rainbow Flag.
For those of you who engage in this activity (or, Ritual, if you will), I would like to hear about your experiences in the next few weeks, around the time between Sunday, March 16 (the date of the Full Moon in Libra) and Sunday, March 30, 2014 (the date of the New Moon in Aries).
