A friend of mine recently shared this on Facebook and I thought that I must share it here. Enjoy the read as well as the contemplation this may lead you to practice.
Working in the Shadows
Today I was cleaning and listening…mostly listening to this thought process I was having about the full moon and how I love lying nude in the moonlight. You may know that I charge my crystals with the sun and the full moon like many crystal lovers. A little over a year ago I started charging myself with the crystals. Let me explain…
At the time I was teaching a lot about Shadow Work and of course was doing my own inner work. As I continued my growth journey I started thinking that the only reason that things in the dark seem so scary is because we are often unfamiliar with them. Fear, like a magnifying glass, takes that unknown and gets you to myopically focus on it with your thoughts and then it expands to something beyond its actual proportion.
At the time that I was thinking these thoughts, I realized that if I simply rested in the shadows, lingered in stillness then I would be able to see the light even in the darkness. This is how my moon bathing began and like my crystals, I FEEL different. I am charged by the Mother. This tapping into my own depths has allowed me to illuminate so many other aspects of my daily existence. It has also allowed me to walk with my shadows in compassion. More importantly, it has allowed me to rest within the Divine Feminine energy that I have always felt was lacking within me. I have realized that this energy was within me always but I was tapping into too much solar energy.
Taking this time in the moonlight has given me the awareness that I don’t always have to be the doer. Actually, it has proven to me that the more I can get still and stay out of the way, the more that Source offers all to me effortlessly. My only action is to recognize and accept with grace. My responsibility is to attune myself daily and be mindful of what my feelings and thoughts line of with.
The next full moon I hope to inspire you to sit in the moonlight. Bask in the shadows…you will be amazed at all the beauty waiting for you there. You just might find a new level of illumination and awareness. Charge yourself in the darkness of the night upon the full moon and then look at how you SHINE. ✨

What do you do when your hunger isn’t physical?
How do you operate when you feel like you are starving despite having food, clothing, all things that are needed?
What do you do when living in the light is more nutritious than the cool, still, numb blanket of the dark that you have grown accustomed to?
How do you open up, let go and move on when the snacks in your hand are consistent calories?
What excuse do you use to keep from feeding your SOUL?
This type of hunger causes pain beyond the body. Places the mind in the existential loops of illusion.
You find yourself in spaces and places you don’t want to be because you’re too busy eating the meals that everyone else tells you are best for you.
You keep doing what others have done and that’s why it’s not working for you.
You are aren’t others.
What feeds others isn’t going to feed you the same way.
Do you stay in the jungle of your hunger, starving while swinging from vine to vine taking what each location offers or do you go for a walk in the desert and bask in the space and liberate yourself from the illusive canopy of “good enough.”
You see, hunger is relative.
You gotta get relative with one question.
Would you rather starve in the jungle of everyone else’s creation or walk in the desert Soulscape of your consciousness ?
Hunger can kill…physically, emotionally, mentally….
Why do you keep feeding the body, distracting the emotions and numbing the mind?
Why haven’t you chosen to feed your SOUL?
Eliminating all the useless calories of mind numbing information, egotism, should have, could haves, rationalism of emotions and so on can create a feast for you unlike any other.
Dive into the relativity of the fact that we have ONE life. We all start with and inhale and leave with an exhale. It’s going to end the same. Feed your SOUL. Get busy living because we are all dying.
