How are you feeling? Do the feelings of overwhelm, agitation, anger, restlessness, anxiousness and/or frustration resonate for you? They certainly have for me lately and it all really set in on Saturday, Nov.18. What I found interesting is that I reached out to a couple of friends who were in the exact same funk and feeling similar to myself.
I woke up at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. My one friend had woken up at 4:30 a.m. and the other had woken at 5:00 a.m. For me, that was just too huge a coincidence, so I checked my calendar and sure enough, the new moon came in at 4:43 a.m. MST on Saturday morning.
I realize that there are many that do not believe that the moon has any impact on us whatsoever. Yet, the reality is, that the moon can cause ocean tides to rise and fall. So if it can do that to an ocean, does it make sense that it would have an impact on us as well since our bodies are made up of 70% water?
Recent science has seen a correlation between earthquakes to new moons and full moons. https://www.sciencealert.com/there-s-now-even-more-evidence-that-the-moon-triggers-our-most-powerful-earthquakes Could these “stresses” on the earth at the same time be felt by us as human beings?
Women’s cycles have been linked to the moon phases. Dr. Christiane Northrup goes into great detail about this very subject: https://www.drnorthrup.com/wisdom-of-menstrual-cycle/ Since women’s cycles are so closely linked to the moon, is there a chance that the moon has an effect on mood? Dr. Northrup states that there is indeed a correlation.
I share this in the hopes of helping to shed some light on the “darkness” in moods that many people, including myself, have been feeling. Know that you are going to get through this. Know that it is through the struggle, that the transformation occurs. I will leave you with this story that best exemplifies the importance of struggle. http://www.kidsworldfun.com/shortstories_butterflyandcocoon.php Struggles do indeed make us shine!
We are going to get through this. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who support your journey along this path that we call life. Look to nature for cues and clues and trust that the universe does indeed have your back.
Sending loads of loving sunshine your way,
Bridging the gap between humanity and nature!
