The Pull of the Moon



With the full Moon on Friday, my internal tide has been running high, and it has been running low. It has been pulling me in all directions with a nervous energy for a few days.

I had to figure out how to use this strong energy in the best possible way.  The Moon, so close to the Earth, affected my mind and made me feel that I was less in control of my emotions.  The heightened activity of my sub-conscious mind enhanced my feelings, emotions and desires.  They all surfaced to my conscious mind, and I felt the distress.

During a full Moon as well as a new Moon the pull on the Earth is more powerful than other days.   I know the only thing to do is to ride out the storm.  Easier said than done this time.  I went to bed last night and the energy within me fluctuated like the ebb and flow of the tide.  I knew it meant that I needed to bring awareness to release some negative energy.

I got up from bed, put on my robe and stepped outside in the quiet night.  As I slowly walked around the house I realized the night was not so quiet after all.  I heard birds high up in the trees, critters running into bushes and leaves gently rustling in the wind.  I did not hear any noise, only soothing sounds from nature.

I stopped walking in my garden, looked up at the starlit sky and I was bathed in the full Moon energy light.  It made me breath deep, and I let go of my edgy vibrations.  Standing under the luminance of the full Moon, I felt closer to myself again.  My intentions were clear, and I used the strong energies to bring myself closer to my goals, especially the spiritual ones.

Not everyone feels the energy from the Moon, and not everyone believes that you can be affected by the Moon.  But if the ocean can move with high tide and low tide, why can’t we?  I’m a firm believer that the Moon affects us.  I just need to learn how to use the strong energy in the best possible way.

If you happen to be like me, you probably need some rest now.  With the ebb and flow of the tide, choose to go with the flow.
