Happy Full Moon Beautiful Soul,
We made it. Here we are on the other side of the Solstice. Christmas too depending on your geographical location and when you are reading this. The darkest days are behind us and Spring is a seed in a Trumpet flower’s dream.
This rare Christmas full moon offers us an opportunity to let go of something that no longer serves us. It might be a pattern of thought, or way of speaking to yourself, or others..it could have something to do with letting go of anything that is inhibiting our individuality, freedom, independence, or spiritual aspirations.
So now that all the rushing and wrapping is over it is time to celebrate the rebirth of the Light by engaging your senses in a deep guided relaxation. This simple act of loving kindness is the best possible gift you can give to your post holiday over stimulated and exhausted senses.
No need to stand on ceremony. This doesn’t have to be fancy or formal. Just come as you are. Unless you know something I don’t, I guarantee that the world will not come to an end. Nor will anyone be hurt if you simply steal away for 10 or 15 minutes to your own cozy bed. Once there make yourself as comfortable as you can, breath deeply, close your eyes and gather yourself in the blanket of pure presence as you let go of all the accumulated tension your body and mind are carrying. Ahhhhh
Staying in touch with the cycles of the moon is one of the simplest ways to nourish your senses. When I look up at the sky I remember myself as a part of something larger, beautiful grand and mysterious. That we are made of the same stuff as the stars and our activities are guided by the same universal rules.* As with wishing on the New Moon, it is within the first 24 hours after the moon is full that initiating letting go is most effective.
Big Hug and Happy New Year and new Lighter You!
