The Blood Moon and the Magnificent Journey

The Blood Moon awakens me with a start...

It is a moon evoking and heralding transformations, and endless possibilities - and inviting the manifestations of our most deeply held dreams...

I go out but do not see it - it remains hidden, but I am drenched in its energy nonetheless....

It is a time of so much tumultuous change, and inner shifting, and I have certainly experienced my share...

I am barely back a week from walking the beaches on the gulf side of Florida - grounding my feet in fine white sand and aimlessly treading through the warm water in the company of dear ones...

I even manage to nestle up really close to a rare yellow crowned night heron that allows me to take his picture without even flinching...

I listen - listen deeply and process messages received and decide to speak my truth in a way that is needed... I don't know where it has landed - or even if it has - but I know that I have released what held my heart deeply captive while at the same time inviting me to seek a life of peace...

One friend encounters a turtle, and then another gingerly avoids a swarm of them and I know they have brought their distinctive message to the doorstep of my heart, and it is simply a message of peace...

I must walk peacefully on this earth, treading lightly and slowly, and standing strong in my power despite obstacles and distractions. I will give my life the room and time that it needs to unfold slowly as I begin to visualize all that I wish to manifest...

I, like so many others before me, and currently, am walking a journey where the destination is not the goal or what ultimately matters. It is all about the expression of the journey - becoming more fully who I have been and am continually becoming - but with a greater and richer depth.

And I, like so many others, before me, and around me, am awakening to greater insights and living more fully in the present and every moment...

And I, like so many women, am responding to the clarion call of living the life I have dreamed of but neglected, and being grateful for all the opportunities I have been given...

I can trace the hand of the Divine in every moment and every phase and in every act of my life. I have never, ever - not once - lived devoid of that Presence or even doubted that it exists...

I arise in the breaking dawn and the clear sky that reveals the Blood Moon, knowing I have crossed a threshold, and have left behind fear and anxiety, but not before acknowledging their presence and expressing gratitude for them as well...

I arise on a new day following a night of intense spiritual practices meant to both shift things within and harness the moon's energy...

I arise and move and breathe in the Divine who is and has always been the ground and framework of my being...

30239Olga, a beautiful reflection. I have been experiencing these tumultuous energies, too. Thanks for letting me know why I have been feeling so 'rocked about' in this world.
It is a magnificent journey. I am walking the path of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius. I am repeating and retreating and have just finished week one and today is my day of reflection and gathering the graces. Thanks for assisting with this process.
