This full moon, I had one of the most amazing, magical moments in my life. I felt my baby’s kicks. It’s such a joy to experience that incredible connection with the new life that’s growing and thriving inside of you. Oh, mothers! You know what I’m talking about, don’t you!
At the same time, I also found myself caught up in negative thoughts about certain people and events in my life. New triggers on the old wounds. The familiar mental stories being retold with fresh ingredients…
It’s quite interesting to see these two completely opposing energies playing out at the same time.
One is absolutely beautiful. It’s all about love, hope and joy. It’s my future.
The other is dreadful, exhausting and stale. It comes from the past hurts and unrealized expectations. It’s the past.
And here I am, in the present, holding these two opposite energies in my hands. There’s tension to resolve it because it feels uncomfortable. But on the other hand, I realize this is the reality of the current moment, and I’m the alchemist who has the capacity to turn stones into gold.
So on this full moon, I’m giving myself permission to feel uncomfortable – to dance with the energies of the dark and the light. I know there’s a lesson in it for me if I allow it to be revealed…
How about you? What thoughts and feelings are showing up for you on this full moon? What insights and lessons are in there for you?
