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.
We write this on the day of the full moon, a time to rest and bask in the fullness of her silvery light. Don’t try to get anything done today, unless it is to fill yourself with light and color and sound and love and plans for the waning phase of our beautiful moon.
Relax, observe the pause in nature’s in-breath on the day of the full moon before the out-breath and action of the waning moon. Absorb her beautiful light and energy into your being and feel her blessing shine through every cell of your body.
She lights your way in the dark.
Get to know the connection between your energy and the moon phases. Pay attention! Observe! It is no use trying to resist the age old rhythms that predate life on this planet. Surrender!
We (humans, trees, plants, animals, and all living things) have evolved over millennia to respond to the push and pull and pauses of the moon, to the time of planning at the new moon, then, as she waxes, of filling, taking in, planting; then resting at full moon. Next comes the emptying, releasing and action, the carrying out of plans, the time of harvest as she wanes again.
