“We can only be said to be alive in these moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” -Thornton Wilder
I started to get sad about missing the fall season out here in #losangeles . The chilly air, the smell of wood burning stoves, hot apple cider, and the brilliant reds and oranges of the changing leaves. Then I looked up and saw the same brilliant colors can be found here too, if you know where to look. It might not be the same version of fall that I grew up with, but Mother Nature is full of treasure if we’re willing to see them. 🍁 🌅

How do you honour the full moon?
I can't say that I have a specific ritual that I take part in during the phases of the moon (perhaps one day I will) I mostly just allow it to lead me to what I need.
Lately I've been going through a transition (perhaps you have to-it's that time of year) it's been a struggle. Breaking pieces away-painfully--but it's creating space for healing.
It's difficult to awaken to a truth; to become aware of something inside of you that needs to be torn away from you. Know though that I have learned something through this; I can handle it, and when I come out of the darkness I will be born again into the light and the truth.
It's not easy. No transformation is easy. Ever. However; when you learn that the darkness isn't the end, it becomes easier. Actually, you begin to able to travel through that darkness with grace and ease. Don't confuse my words- It's not easy- but it's easier to understand why you're there. What's going on. What will come of it. (if you actual walk into the dark and face what needs to be faced)
Now is a time of awakening. A time of change and transformation. You may have noticed some signs in your own life. You may feel it tugging at you. Embrace it. Do not be afraid to embrace your inner darkness, it's the only way to the light. It's time to balance out the two in your life.
It is time.
I know it sounds dumb but healing can't come until you've been broken.
I want you to know and find comfort in knowing that you're not alone. Draw from the collective for the strength you need to go inside of yourself and break and heal.
I took some time last night during the full moon to bath in its light and embrace some truths that I needed to be made aware of.
Right now I am balancing out my own light and dark.
Right now I am drawing from the universal love, and right now, I am Sending you love and courage to do the same. 🙏🏼♥️🙏🏼
