This could be a good time!
Today is new moon.
A time to rest and rejuvenate and dive deep within to clarifie where to direct our energies in the month and months to come. As summer has reached its peak and is heading towards its end we are harvesting the bounty of seeds planted perhaps long ago. Now we celebrate and have much to share while also our attention may start to turn inwards for a check in . A taking stock. How will I proceed. What works for me and not least what does not work for me. What need to be laid to rest. How will I nourish myself through the time to come. Here are some inspiring words for this coming time of transition and change from summers frivolous energies to the practical scheduled and perhaps busy fall, back to school schedule. Our culture pays little attention to the cycle of nature that calls us to go inward and to slow down as the year vanes but I invite you to perhaps consider… How to invite time for reflection and creativity and nourishment for body and soul and not least non doing as part of your life through out fall and winter. Perhaps if we are smart we can use some of this summer energy and new-moon in Virgo to plan , tidy and organize our lives so that come the darker days we have time to reflect and slumber and delve in the realms of our soul.
New moon blessings to you all.
“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . .
Where are you living?
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!”
“There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
“Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
“The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
