For the past year, I've been managing my business and my energy following the moon's cycles, I ditched trying to manage my time for good. My results? have been fantastic! Let me share in detail here...
But, before I start, I want to share why I gave up trying to manage my time in the first place. When I became a Mom, better yet a Mompreneur, my time was sucked by activities that were absolutely out of my control, and my mind kept on fixed on the archaic concept of writing down my To-do List for the day. I suffered big time while "crafting the perfect balance" as a new mom because my natural tendency when facing problems is to try to solve them, I'm solution driven let's say.
As my baby girl was teaching me how to become a mom, months of joy were passing by, but my time - my newly crafted plan- was falling through the cracks day in and day out.
So, I decided to research and found a great book that spoke about the energy of the moon phases in relation to managing time, and loved it. Specifically the part on how woman could synch up our cycles to the Moon's energy, as well as, our businesses. In a nutshell, this was revolutionary for me! so I kept on my research.
I went on to apply it all, I mean all my newly discovered information, and indeed I got in synch with the moon to the point that I could predict my mood, my energy levels and my peak creation time. So, month after month, cycle after cycle, it became clear that the power of the Moon's energy was guiding my energy and hence I could react understanding my energy in my available time doing less and achieving more, rather than reacting based on my planned time scheduled that failed repeatedly. How did I manage this?
Well, according to several authors, the source of this specific briefing comes from astrologer Jennifer Racioppi and her Guide: The Lunar Logic Revolution. There are 8 phases of the moon which we can follow on monthly basis. I speak as a Female Entrepreneur for my fellow sisters but this applies to everyone, man included. We can connect our productivity and by default listen to our energy levels based on each phase of the moon to get into action, as follows:
During New Moon, connect to your deep desires and commit. Waxing Crescent Moon, take deliberate actions on behalf of your goals. Waxing Quarter Moon, reassess and align. Waxing Gibbous Moon, exert energy on behalf of your goal. Full Moon, Celebrate, receive, release. Waning Disseminating Moon, Consciously relax. Waning Quarter Moon, let go of what holds you back, reassess and realign, review where you are at in relation to your goal. Balsamic Moon, nurture yourself, evaluate your efforts, take good care of yourself, love yourself. And so, a new cycle shall start all over again!
Think about it, when you flow with nature your intension, energy and power tunes in as a major force in your favour. It is simple to get started. Simply write down in your regular digital or paper schedule this month's lunar phases and plan your desires activities around it. If you are in the business of creating content, why not leave for the waxing crescent moon phases of the month? by then you'll be able to note down the dates of the month and plan out the number of hours you intend to use to create then. Sounds like a plan?
There are plenty Lunar Calendars out there you can give a try that might help you out build the habit too. Give it a try and let me know how it goes, you'll be amazed.
Since very young I follow and honour the Moon, but since I've learned how to run my business in synch with the Moon I swear by it. My hope is that this tip helps you improve your life and business, share your findings in the comments below. To your success!
