Meeting Ian: New Moon Intentions At Work

I have an interesting tale to tell about the recent Leo New Moon seeds of intention which I planted at the exact moment of the Leo New Moon in conjunction with the Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul eclass I'm teaching at the Wise Woman University. I also added a Lunar Meditation (thanks to Barbara Hand Clow) and a dreaming request plus shared my intentions with a live audience on The Reluctant Medium's Blog Talk Radio program.

My intentions were creatively Leonine: I wished for a smooth and productive month re-building and launching my new and improved website PLUS really wanted to add some interactivity to the mix ie. audio/video showing me live and in action: soul reading, working with crystals and hugging tress, but I didn't know where to start!

The day after my Leo New Moon wishes were publicly broadcast on the radio a young man sat down next to me at Barnes and Nobles bookstore with his Mac Book Pro laptop and asked me if I was wearing Moldavite; an odd question!

    Moldavite was originally created when a large meteorite crashed into the Bohemian plateau of the Czech Republic, approximately 14.8 million years ago. It has many magickal, healing qualities relating to the heart and third eye chakra

Genie In A Bottle - Your Universe in Pictures

Are there things in life that you have wanted but which have eluded you? Material things, physical attributes, human connections-that for one reason or another you've simply been unable to achieve?

My wife Angela and I made what I call a 'vision board' when we were looking for a new home. We wanted the house to be 4,000 square feet, near the water but not far from the mountains, on a certain amount of acreage, in the Pacific Northwest, and as a lark, because it's something my wife had always wanted, with a gazebo. So we got out the poster board, a glue stick, some magazines, crayons and colored pencils and set about collaging our dream house complete with water to the west, mountains to the east, and gazebo.

What happened? Less than six months later our Realtor showed us our dream house, down to the last detail.

I can almost hear the naysayers out there collectively negating the possibility of us manifesting our house with some art supplies and collage crafting. I am not here to turn anyone into a believer, I am simply here to pass on what has worked for me, what has worked for scores of my students, and inviting you to take it or leave it. My hope is that you'll take it.

For those of you on board, no doubt you're asking, 'How does this work?'
