A Heart-Centred Pause to Honour Your Essence

Waning Moon.  A Time to Exhale and Release.

Sisters, gentle hearted, fierce and wild.

I ask you to carve out a few moments to be at peace with yourself today. And within that, just a moment to stand in front of a mirror, look deep into your own eyes and to bear witness to your profound essence.

See yourself completely, from a place of gentleness and love.

Cast aside the lenses of judgement, discontentment, self-criticism and shame. Empty out the cacophony of thoughts, the mental load, the weight of life’s demands on your shoulders and just breathe for a moment.

Honour yourself. Honour all that you embody, heart and soul, the wholeness of your inner light, your strength, your power and your courage to show up in the world even when it feels as though the odds are stacked against you.

Place your hand over your heart space and send loving light and gratitude inward. You are worthy. You are whole. You are enough. You deserve this moment for yourself. Breathe it in, lean into it and then exhale and let all else out.  Let go, release and  surrender.

“We are not responsible for what our eyes are seeing. We are responsible for how we perceive what we are seeing.”

Half the Waning Moon

Half the Waning Moon

The night air filled me

As I looked up to see the half-eaten moon

Resting so still against the starry sky

She was not mourning her wounds

Or grappling for parts of herself not there

Instead, she sat at peace with her journey

Trusting that even though the night keeps eating away at her,

And her body dissolves and disappears until she is no more

Soon enough she will be reborn

And become whole again.

In the morning,

She smiled in a gentle blue heaven

Tinted in Beltane’s light

I drew her face into my body

And she whispered:

‘Are you ready to let go and then start all over again?’

Everything in me shouted ‘YES!’
