Full Moon Meditation For Women and Men

Dear Family,

As if you haven't noticed, things are a little different now. And what better way to start off the New Year than with a "different" moon!

Tonight's full moon is known as the "Full Wolf Moon" but don't let that stop you from going outside and enjoying it!

This full moon is also one of two "Super Moons" this month. A "Super Moon" is when the moon is closest to the Earth in its monthly slightly elliptical orbit. The astronomical term is "perigee full moon." However, in popular culture, the "Super Moon" term is often used for whenever the moon is relatively close to the Earth, not just at perigee.

The second full moon in January, on January 31st, will also be a "Super Moon" and as an added bonus, will have a Lunar Eclipse! It is the First Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in 150 years!

Here are some fun January Full Moon Facts:

1. Tonight the moon will be 221,559 miles away from Earth, the closest it has been since 1998.
2. The month of January has a second full moon! It is on January 31st. When a month has a second full moon, that second one is known as a "Blue Moon." The term actually comes about from a mistake in an astronomy article in the 1940s. The term "blue moon" stuck, and 70 years later it is still in common use.
3. Both of January's full moons are Super Moons!
4. It is very rare that a Super Moon is also a Blue Moon!
5. Blue Moons happen about every 30 months or so.
6. The January 31st Blue Moon-Super Moon-Lunar Eclipse will be viewable (weather permitting, of course) in eastern Asia, Australia, India, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. In North America, Hawaii, Alaska, and northwestern Canada will see some of it. The moon will be setting or already set for the rest of North America.
7. The "Quadrantids" meteor shower will happen very early January 4th, maybe 2, 3, 4 am and will appear to come from a little below the Big Dipper's handle.

So, what does all this mean? Be steady, STAY POSITIVE, and get your family outdoors into the night sky and see the Divine Plan in action!

Oh, and visit a nearby Observatory if available. Hari Nam and I are members of the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona!

If you can't join me in person, then join me in our live broadcast right here on www.healingsource.com.

No experience is needed and Yogi Tea and snacks are served after.

Bless us as Women and Men in all ways, always!

Compatibility and Support Information for Computers / Smart Phone / Tablets

Please note that on some computers, phones and tablets the video can take up to 60 seconds to start (it is buffering the video stream).

Video support for mobile devices ("smart" phones and tablets) is often iffy because they use the newer and currently less compatible "HTML5" video instead of Flash.

Desktop/laptop computers (Windows, Mac and Linux) work best because they come with Adobe Flash Player. Please check that you have a very recent version of Flash. Video support for mobile devices, however, is often iffy. Mac users often have problems with the built-in browser "Safari". Install Google's "Chrome" browser or Mozilla's "Firefox" browser and use either one of those instead. (The difference between those two mostly has to do with privacy -with Chrome, being from Google, you surrender all your privacy [same as using Safari] and Firefox, being from the Mozilla Foundation, you retain much of your privacy.)

Android Smart Phone and Tablet users -In the recent versions of Andriod the built-in browser is called "Chrome." It is most compatible and usually works very well. If the video is not playing correctly, then there is not really anything that can be done other than try a desktop computer if one is nearby -that may work better for you.

Firefox-for-Andriod (free and found in the Google Play store) usually works well. We personally use Firefox-for-Android on our Android devices rather than the built-in brower (for a number of reasons including better privacy and also better compatibility with HTML 5 video). So you might want to give it a try!

iPads and iPhones purchased within the past year or so usually work fine with the video. Older versions often struggle to keep a reliable video connection and there really isn't a way to fix it.

In general, though, if the video stops and there is just a black box without a big "Play" button in the middle of it, "refreshing" your browser usually re-starts the video. Unfortunately, interruptions during live broadcasts are usually unavoidable. However, with the new cutting-edge technology we're using in 2016 combined with you using a computer / smart phone / tablet less than 2 years old can minimized interruptions and in some cases avoid them all together. It is just the nature of this young technology, but it will improve in the coming years.
