Unplugging for the Super Moon

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.” 
~ Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

 

Last night the pull of the moon was strong in my heart.

There were so many opportunities for me to be with others, and to be out in the world, but with the moon bright in the sky, and the scent of red dust and the memories of my old Aboriginal Aunties at the forefront of my mind, all I wanted to do was unplug from the world for a while, rug up and watch the night sky, and then turn in for some meditation and an early bedtime.

There is much to be said for the restorative power of the moon.

And of meditation.

And of sleep.

I’ve woken refreshed and peaceful in my skin today. Loved up and ready for the world again. And oh, how I flew the bright skies last night. Oh, how I flew…

Meditating with the Super Moon

“May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night and a smooth road all the way to your door.” ~ Irish Blessing

Tonight, Sunday 23rd June, 2013, we will experience a supermoon.  A super moon is a perigree full moon – a full moon that occurs at the moon’s closest approach to earth.  The moon will appear brighter and larger in the night sky than usual.

What does that mean for you? Well, if the skies are clear you’ll be afforded a pretty spectacular sight.

And if you’re interested in connecting more deeply to your natural spiritual, intuitive and creative gifts you’ll find that the energies of a super moon greatly facilitate this connection.

I’ve recorded a simple guided meditation you can use tonight to take full advantage of the super moon.  It’s not necessary for you to be able to see the moon, but if you can then why not sit or lie where you can be bathed in moonlight!

If you’d like to hold a crystal during the meditation I recommend clear quartz, moonstone, labradorite, celestite or rutilated quartz.

Set aside ten minutes to complete the meditation, and you may like to have some consolidation time after that.  I also suggest some journalling time, to record any messages, insights or breakthroughs you may receive.

(PS – Please forgive my breathiness in this meditation. My fat old heart is still playing up a little… )
