Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today!

The last full week of September brings some resolution to what has been a month of  change and adjustment.  As pieces being to fall into place for this season, notice where they have landed.  Notice what you were expecting and how things have turned out differently.   Without judgement or even analysis, just notice.

In this space of noticing the shifts that have naturally, rhythmically occurred, pay attention to you mis-placed attention.  Where were you “trying too hard”, forcing an issue or agenda?  Now, gently come in to a more unified alignment with your life, your work, your family, your relationships, your SELF.  To do this takes a bit of detached reflection and a lot of coming in to the present moment with acceptance and gratitude.

Make the time for this acknowledgement this week in some form.  A prayer?  A moment of silence?  A ceremony?  An outing?  A retreat?  It can be big or small, take hours or minutes.  It can be with a group or by yourself.  You get to decide the form it takes. This acknowledgement will help pave the way for the rooting that will be taking place over the next few months.

This is not a time to push stubbornly for something you think you “should” be doing .  Rather, its a time to appreciate what IS.  Take a deep breath, and let it go.  Remembering, theres a time and place for everything.

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!

Energy Musings.  Here.  Now.

Today!

Breathe into a quality that you want to embody. Something you want to invite more of into your life. Start with patience, non-judgement, kindness.  These are all themes that are front and center at the moment.

Which of these resonates with you?  Take a long deep breath and bring  that quality into your being.  Every time you forget, just breathe it in again. In the most challenging moments of your day lies the greatest gift, the opportunity to bring more patience, non judgment or kindness into that moment.  The only requirement is that your remember. Remember this: with an inhale, with an exhale.  Close your eyes and listen to the silence before you respond.

Those closest to you, most like you, dearest to you will ALWAYS challenge you in the most hidden places.  See this as an act of love.  Don’t try to stop or control them, turn your attention inward instead.  Here is where you will find freedom and the ability to shift patterns for real.  Nothing will ever change if you continue to lash out from a place of re-action.  You will only start a chain of negativity that unfolds into even darker places.  How many times will you travel down this well worn path of habit?

Instead, breathe into the clarity of the present moment.  Whatever triggered you already happened.  Moments, seconds, mili seconds ago.  Either way, it is literally over.  Let it go. Choose a new road.

Words of the Day:  Patience.  Non-Judgement. Kindness.

Song of the Day:  Blowing in the Wind by Bob Dylan
