Did you know that Monday was named after the Moon?  Can you see it where you live? Are you aware of its cycles?  Do you feel affected by its energy?


On September 12, it was a full moon Monday and I couldn’t sleep.  Earlier I went outside and counted 100 breaths barefoot in the grass.  Two cats came to visit me.  I listened to the ducks in their pen, to the wind chimes and to the crickets.  I’m incredibly fortunate to live in a place where I can merely step out the door and be in nature.  I don’t have to worry about crime or pollution.  It was a dream of mine to live in the country that took twenty-two years to manifest. Some dreams take a long time.


What are your dreams that have lain hidden for years?  Can you remember them?  Do you want to revive them? Awakening to your innermost desires can take time; hopefully it won’t take twenty-two years!




Call forth

Make aware





How do you feel when you read words like these?  Do you start feeling more energetic and enthusiastic?


A closed heart is constricted, tight and constrained.  Do you believe that closing your heart protects you from being hurt? It doesn’t.  If your heart is open and loving, you will attract more love and kindness.  If you practice forgiveness, your heart will remain open.  Opening your heart through any meaningful form of spiritual practice will help you awaken to your own true nature.
