Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today!

Look into the places where you feel afraid.  Peer inside with tenderness and care.  Be willing to see the places that scare you.  The dark places.  The shadowy corners.  What lurks there?

These hidden fears are often representations of something tender, raw, vulnerable.  We make them into monsters in our mind, but they are more like prey.  If we ask these places what they need, we can shift them and bring ourselves into deeper levels of balance in the process.

What are you concerned about, worried for, right now?   Remember this:  All of us, ALL of us, regardless of class, race, upbringing, religion, belief systems, share in this human quality of wanting to survive.  In this survival place, we all have our concerns which sometimes get triggered into fears.  We wear these fears very similarly:  as anger, pride, self-righteousness, stubbornness.  But really, we all just need to be safe.  If I look around at those yelling the loudest, at those who are most accusatory, at those who have been ignored or those who have the most, I see people who just want to feel secure. Who just want to know they, and their loved ones are protected.

Are we, as a Human race, able to look beyond the chasms of our differences, and see this common need for stability , this shared interest of being healthy and whole, as a unifying trait?

Start with you.  Start with now.  Start right here.

Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today.

On the cusp of the Full Moon.

Beautiful Dreamer.  Moonbeams aglow.  Sinking into the watery darkness shining our inner light.

Preparing for the impact of the Full Moon, we practice softening and creating space in our breath, our being, our mind, our day.

Slow down.  Pause between things.  Notice the details.

Bring an extra dose of patience into everything you do today.  Give yourself the room to look around, pay attention and acknowledge.  In each moment of acknowledgement, let go of judgement, hooks, triggers.

It doesn’t matter how busy or slow you day and work are.  Theres always time for an extra breath, a moment of awareness, a time-in. Take as many of these as you can today.

Then dream well, sleep well, restore well, heal well, relax well, and sink deeply into well-ness riding the waves of the Full Moon.

 

Song of the Day:  

Beautiful Dreamer sung by Cheryl Crow

1. Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee; Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day, Lull’d by the moonlight have all pass’d away! Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song, List while I woo thee with soft melody; Gone are the cares of life’s busy throng, Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

2. Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea, Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelei; Over the streamlet vapors are borne, Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn. Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart, E’en as the morn on the streamlet and sea; Then will all clouds of sorrow depart, Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
