A Gentle Way into the New Moon
“NEW MOON in CANCER is teaching us to dive deep within to uncover the hidden pearls of self-love and compassion. While the seas of change threaten to bring us under, we must find our feminine flow and ride the currents to new shores.” ~ Mystic Mamma
I’d hoped to emerge a fresh maiden with the rising energy currents of tomorrow’s New Moon. Alas, although my mind and heart are alive with ideas and inspiration, by body hasn’t quite caught up yet. I’ve finally overcome the flu, but other health issues are slowing me down still. Along with winter’s cold grip, it’s got me feeling like an old broken crone. So I’m focusing on giving me body the rest and tender care that it needs.
Sometimes self-care is easier said than done. There is an underlying urge to push myself to do more even when my body is asking for the opposite. Half the battle is giving myself permission to take the time that I need and remembering to stay centred in awareness so that I return that space of inner peace and then just listen to what my body and soul are asking right now. Nonetheless, I’m managing to breathe and journey through life in a gentle way as I quietly gather more strength. I’ve put various tasks, chores and the need to be doing on hold for a bit and am drawing on my ‘inner mother’ whose nurturing I need to love and heal myself.
While I’ve chosen to surrender to this period of sacred pause and won’t be jumping into action as soon as I’d hoped, I am still holding my intentions in my heart, visioning and dreaming them into being, quietly under the warm blankets and between sips of delicious chocolate banana smoothies. One of such dream is an inner beauty meditation. It will be the first free sample of a series of audio meditations I am creating in the near future. I hope to have this first meditation completed and ready to share in the next couple weeks. It’s something dear to me because I created when I needed to release a negative self-perception and learn see more value and beauty within. So using this meditation has had a profound effect on me and I hope that I can share the experience with others too.
In the meantime, may the vibrations of the New Moon bless the intentions and dreams in your heart, as well as guide you to a place of self-love, compassion and divine feminine flow.
