This is good because...
I have been very quiet here the last few weeks. It's been a time of going within as my family and I are navigating some unexpected changes.
The past few weeks have been a mix of joy, grief, fear, and reverence for the lack of control that I have over the big stuff in life (a lesson I get to keep on learning...).
In the grand scheme of things, all is well. Truly.
This morning at school drop off I shared what's going on with a friend and fellow parent. And she transformed into the fairy godmother or guardian angel I so needed today.
She saw the good and the magic and the joy for me. She so sincerely shared that energy, and I allowed it to wash over me.
Then she showed me this piece of paper that she keeps on her car dashboard that reads:
"This is good because..."
And with a loving smile on her face she told me, "You can fill in the rest from there."
So I drove home from my daughter's school with tears running down my cheeks as I tuned into all that is good about the changes we're navigating through.
OVER TO YOU
Whatever it is you're facing today may bring a real soul-stirring mix of "good" and "bad." I don't believe in minimizing the tough stuff. Suffering is a normal part of the human journey and needs its space and time.
But I also know when I get stuck in a loop of negativity that doesn't serve... So today I invite you to expand into what's good with me.
Complete this statement for whatever it is you're experiencing today:
This is good because...
THE FULL MOON IS TONIGHT!
If you've been with me for some time you know that I wholeheartedly support living a life of ritual that is attuned with the cycles of nature... Because when you align yourself with nature you become more aligned with your own true nature.
To more deeply embrace and celebrate what is good in your life today, I encourage you to take some time (even just a few minutes!) to honor all that is blossoming in you with this full moon in scorpio. May is a time to honor the divine feminine, to nurture that which is budding in you (without forcing the bloom!), and holding space for your creative power (without pushing to produce).
So maybe take the time to walk in nature and remember that you are a part of that beauty. Or light some candles and honor the good of what is budding in you now. Or draw a bath so you can rest in the warm, soothing waters and reflect on the inherent good that resides in you just as you are.
If you have the time to reflect and connect with the moon, welcome the belief, "I am at peace with who I am today. I am at peace with where I am in my journey today." And allow the fullness of your wisdom to emerge in that sacred space.
With warmth & light,
