This whole day has felt like a Full Moon meditation as I write this Love Note in my pjs from my pillow-laden bed.
I needed María Sabina’s medicine today (thank you, Lora, for posting).
Wise Words from a Medicine Woman
Cure yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon.
With the sound of the river
and the waterfall.
With the swaying of the sea and
the fluttering of the birds.
Heal yourself with the mint and the mint leaves, with neem and eucalyptus.
Sweeten yourself with lavendar, rosemary and chamomile.
Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and
a touch of cinnamon.
Put love in tea instead of sugar. And take it looking at the stars.
Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.
Get strong with bare feet on the ground and with everything that is born from it.
Get smarter every day by listening
to your intuition,
looking at the world with the eye
of your forehead.
Jump, dance, sing,
so that you live happier.
Heal yourself with beautiful love and always remember…
you are the medicine.
~María Sabina, Mexican curandera and poet
I’ve spent a lot of time lately thinking about bodies.
Did our souls have the full scope of just how challenging it would be to experience both the pain and beauty in our physical form?
Two years ago, I watched my stepfather’s body exhale its last breath as lung cancer did what his heart attack and perforated ulcers had failed to do. I’ve been reeling for months now about the two children I know and love who’ve been sexually violated. Last week, I read about how another black body was shot down. I feel anger, the heart-breaking sadness about this loss of life, this loss of innocence. In disbelief, I shake my head “no” while asking, “What are we doing here?”
These bodies, our soft, vulnerable bodies. When will we realize how precious each one is?
I can imagine Pisces, the Visionary Dreamer, the Mystical Lover (I see her in Goddess form), saying, “You already know, my love.”
But somehow we exit the birth canal, take our first breath and forget who we are, where we came from, why we’re here, the Dreamer who needs to dream herself awake, so she stops hooking into the drama and the nightmare that keep her small and asleep.
So we heroically shapeshift into the Witness to take in what we’re seeing while also feeling the weight of what we’re seeing because our bodies are the Record Keepers as much as they are the Wisdom Keepers.
The courage of the Witness doesn’t allow herself to marinade in collective fears, stew in personal anxiety, set fire to conspiracy theories or bypass hard conversations or uncomfortable feelings. She’s a Lover.
With Her hands outstretched, Healing is here. The earthy Virgo Sun with Her penetrating Goddess and Priestess gaze will boomerang your attention right back to your body, mind and soul if you’re not tending to yourself first, showing you where you are or are not nourishing yourself while you navigate the disruptive energies on this planet right now.
The Full Moon in Visionary Pisces holds keys for your Dream for this planet because the Mystical Lover inside of you will never let you stay stuck for long, her powerful energy liberating what’s poised to be set free, ready to bring you an empowering message if you can grow silent enough to listen to Her transmission.
If you can’t hear the next steps or see the new vision, the unprocessed, undigested feelings blocking Love’s higher frequencies will need some space to move. Welcome the giant swells of emotion in when they arrive to your shore, sweetheart, because that’s how you move through.
Then tend to your heart, take care of your nervous system, resting and retreating for a while in the dark. You’ll feel the sun on your face again. Follow the sage words of the Mystic-Lover-Poet Hafiz…
Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
Your separation from [Love]
is the hardest work in this world.
Let me bring you trays of food
and something you like to drink.
You can use my soft words
as a cushion for your head.
The Visionary Dreamer and the Mystical Lover know that transformation and transcendance can have sweet moments too. Invoke them both, allowing these Piscean archetypal forces to significantly shape the Cosmic Love Story you agreed to do your part to unfold.
Resting my head
on some soft words,
in love and honor,
YOUR INVITATION THIS FULL MOON
The Full Moon is a time of releasing the past, of surrender, of ending a cycle.
What are you ready to release? Share in the comments below and what part of the Dream you’re claiming for the planet.
Below are two suggestions in how to attune inward to see where you’re situated within this Great Metamorphosis and to receive messages of love, guidance and healing for the Mystic, the Lover and Dreamer in you.
TAROT/ORACLE CARD SPREAD
Dive into your subconscious at the same time you access your Higher Wisdom. Breathe into an intention based on where you’re at right now and pull five cards for this spread.
1. What pattern or cycle in my life is about to come to an end?
2. What is emerging from the depths of my soul?
3. What supports my healing and transformation?
4. Who is standing with me? (choose the same or different oracle card deck to see Who your ally is)
5. Who am I becoming in this Cosmic Love Story?
Science and Spirit alike know the power of sound to heal ourselves on many levels. Listening to a song stirs up emotion and can soothe our minds, calm our hearts, but it can also upload the programs, beliefs and feelings we have buried deeply in our subconscous or the ones hovering just below the surface of our awareness.
Like this song below.
I haven’t been able to stop playing this song or watching the video for the last few weeks and wanted to share it with you here. The mesmerizing dance performance is by Alice Graf Mack (who’s also the choreographer); the beautiful lyrics and music from Jon Batiste.
Close your eyes.
Call up your most beautiful dream.
See yourself on that timeline where the dream lives and breathes.
Then invite this song and dance into your soul.
