Full Moon

Grandmother Cottonwood’s advice to you during a full moon?

Rest, dream, lay on the earth and soak in the silvery moonlight. Know that you belong, that you are an integral part of this universe. Let the moonlight fill every cell of your body, your breath and your aura with peace. Rest yourself, body mind and spirit.

Let earth energy fill you and anchor you as well. Know the fullness of your life as it is right now. Know the sense of completeness and satisfaction and the sense of being at home in your body just for today. Full moon helps you become aware of these blessings.

Just goof off! The energy of the waning moon will begin soon enough. Then you will feel energized and ready to tackle your projects once again.

The full moon is your opportunity for a mini vacation from constant doing, pushing, striving. Your bodily rhythms tuned over millennia to the rhythms of the moon come to a still point on this day.

Honor yourself and all you’ve accomplished. Honor your need to rest and recharge and be still.

Honor your need to bathe in the magical moonlight for a little while.

The Moon

My dears have you looked to the sky at night and bathed and danced and delighted in the moonlight?

You would do well to study her rhythms and phases, to align your life’s ebb and flow, fullness and emptiness with her age-old patterns.

As the moon waxes, fill yourself with goodness, love and light. Prepare, gather in.

At full moon, open to her light, give thanks for what has manifested in your life!

Then as she wanes, let go, release all those thoughts ideas, energies that have served their purpose. Let go of those physical objects you are ready to release. Clear out, make room.

At new moon, the dark night of the month, honor the death of the old, make plans for the new, yet again.

All living things on this planet have evolved to be sensitive to the gentle rhythms, the pearly light of our beloved moon mother. You are no exception. Let the rhythms of your life be guided by our ancient night companion.
