The full moon is always such a powerful time for me. It’s like the moon shines down on me and says, “Soak up my energy, it’s for you my love.” And I do. And it’s so so good.
I wrote that last night after burning away some slips of paper, releasing thoughts and ideas to the Universe.
I wrote that as the ashes bathed in moonlight.
I wrote that after I turned to my vision books for wisdom and began to listen.
This morning, I felt like I had a full moon hangover. My energy was frenetic. Not grounded, not focused. In a tired stupor I got myself to yoga class this morning, feeling grateful that I now have an outside force saying ‘you must go’ because sometimes my own desirous voice is not enough. Class woke me up but also opened me to so much receptivity that I struggled to find my grounding.
This moon cracked me open and one of the lessons it is teaching me is that words are my earth, my grounding, so I am here, writing my heart open to you.
Just as writing it out can ground me, so can finding words of others that resonate deeply in the moment, and so I leave you with this thought from Swami Vivekananada:
“Every particle in this body is continually changing; no one has the same body for many minutes together, and yet we think of it as the same body. So with the mind: one moment it is happy, another moment unhappy; one moment strong, another weak – an ever changing whirlpool. That cannot be the Spirit, which is infinite…. Any particle in this universe can change in relation to any other particle. But take the whole universe as one; then in relation to what can it move? There is nothing besides it. So this infinite Unit is unchangeable, immovable, absolute….”
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
