Oh, its bright at night. The dark, the under belly, the unconscious, and subconscious bubbles to the surface. At the full Moon, the energy builds and builds....there's an explosive outgoing aspect to it. All of nature grows and is more vital at the full Moon. This surge allows you to take action on behalf of those new Moon intentions you set two week prior. A full moon ritual might involve taking one solid step, with a symbolic action. And it can be a powerful time to release, cast out, unburden yourself, purge, etc. You celebrate your emergence by stepping out of an old skin, identity, behaviour, attitude, relationship. The ritual helps you by marking this inner transformation in a formal way.
Shed your skin, and clothes. Bathe by candle light and read the cleansing prayer aloud.
Turns out I live 5 mins from amazing hiking trails!! yay me!
This is my bliss. Trees speak to me.
I have this idea... its been brewing for years. I think its time to create it.
Walking in nature has the ability to revitalize you, inspire new & old ideas. It clearing, opening, and healing. With so much natural beauty around I invite you to tap into it. Where ever you are, near by there will be a tree ready to pass forward its stoic beauty and lessons of grounded-ness. Breathe deep and listen. Wrap your arms around it and feel.
Websters defines practicing as; actively engaged in a specified career or way of life.
I guess I have been on the path of practicing health for most my adult life. It all started in Germany early 2000's, I was living with a man out in a teeny tiny dorf called Pessenbach. Some girlfriends of mine where backpacking through so we hooked up to share some laughs. One of the girls had found a very well read book by Shakti Gawain, Living in The Light. Reading this book opened doors in my mind that I had been seeking without even knowing. It was the beginning of my spiritual/lifepath practice.
For years after I consumed alternative health care. I studied holistic body work modalities. I took up Yoga, meditation, energetic healing, atonement with nature... always seeking.
But Life is a pendulum swing and its been a journey and a challenge. When I'm practicing living well, I'm eating well, exercising/stretching, mindful, gracious, spending time in nature, flowing with life, and feeling in balance. Then, you know how it goes, I fall off and party too much. Spend too much time shopping or drinking wine with friends, or feed my kid crap food (that I said I never would) cause i'm "too busy" to cook a nutritious meal, then feel guilty about not doing enough business or making enough money.
the vicious cycle that most women feel today i'm sure.
I want to live happily, make exercise a priority, be organized with healthy meals to sustain my family, and love my body (no matter how it looks right now). My practice is to do these things. To Live will.
So I get back to my zone. Sit alone. Breathe my desires. I write them down.
In grade school when they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I remember not knowing, but I knew wanted to BE.
