Honoring the Lunar Cycle

Full class; full, completely filled – this hive – the vibe is that of golden shimmering ripples of energy.   Ripened moon dripping with golden nectar hangs heavy to the horizon, reminding all of us our connection to that lunar energy.  That energy is … powerful like a queen bee’s, nourishing and motherly.  Sunday being 2 nights within the full moon phase, we honored with our whole body, mind, spirit to our connection to the cosmos… Singular effort is put out to observe each body for the body language, its aura and calibrate the energy. So much is hidden; so much is stifled from full expression otherwise. I must cultivate the skill to better ZOOM in and create the zone without resorting to dumbing down the class and rather trust that each hears out the wise teacher within.

Ramblings of the evening infused in luminescent veil of … communal magic …refueling … together …

May this first full moon of the New Year that Native Americans named Wolf Moon

be that – as we gaze up to that round light of wonder this start of the year, we invite our animal spirit to lead us to start afresh

 

Connecting with that instinctual wolf spirit within, we are receptive to the call of the wild

Hushed  … as the night deepens and thickens

Listen to that call of our hearts desires, howling

We seek out silence, calmness, clarity where our howls echos and resonates

Finding refuge from the noise

to hear own howling echo and amplified as the vibrations

fade into the velvety night sky

 

Full Moon evening is that sacred time

to return home to our true nature within

The true nature within

our true spirit call it instinct intuition

We rediscover your luminous brilliance within

that may lay dormant shrouded in layers of dust, debris  … grayness, months and years of built up that clutter, we do away with, once again freed

 

Under the shimmering lunar magic, faint light rekindles and grows … baby flame smolders in the darkness

That light does not battle and destroy darkness but in duality of night and day

radiates energy and shines a rekindled light to flash and expose

 

We embrace life rooted into the great mother earth, we absorb both darkness and light to grow and glow

high into the cosmos to meetup with that source of all … and blessed to experience the Shift

to be that shooting star connecting and channeling that lunar energy … combustion and expansion

 

We are all stardust integral part of this boundless web of Oneness we call the Universe The Unknown

May we keep our faith

Our light will again shine however faint or powerful

as we cycle though the seasons with gentleness and grace

The Full Moon is that reminder … there’s beauty

 

as we salute the rekindled glow within

we affix our translucent gaze Embarking on the New Year with Intention

May I be at ease
May I be filled with loving-kindness
May I be peaceful

It’s time of gathering – family – friends – abundance – harvest – and at the same time, for many, it’s also time of deep reflection.  I know many have suffered a loss; I know many are suffering right now; so … I am lucky enough to worry more about how to get the time to go to the gym and a yoga studio to exercise and practice to better myself, to re-energize as Thanksgiving suppers have a tendency to turn us into sloths – but all the more – we need to take the time to take care of ourselves inside out.  In the hassle and bustle of the holiday season,  onslaught of social obligations and commitments, we need to take the time, carve out the time to be with nature and be on our mat for that meaningful soulful time to breathe and balance and strengthen not only our muscles but our resolve. Resolute in our resolve for strengthening our relationships, for disciplined self-care regimen, at this especially vulnerable time. Then, we can make space to really be present with each person we hold dear and precious in our lives. To really savor and truly appreciate this present moment, imbued in the golden Autumn light.

21 days until Winter Solstice.  Have you Yin-Yanged for wellness today?

Are you feeling whole and strong today?  Or are you feeling a bit sad, dull, sluggish or fragmented – if so, why?  And what would help you feel whole and strong again?

What if I said, soften your heart and be gentle with your words …

May you be safe
May you be healthy
May you be happy
May you be at ease
May you be filled with loving-kindness
May you be peaceful
